Boeing reports jump in 1Q profits, lifts 2018 forecast

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 09:39:20 -0400

(image) Boeing reported a surge in first-quarter profits on Wednesday and lifted its full-year earnings forecast following a strong performance in commercial aviation and defense programs. The results again reflect broad health in commercial aviation as the airline industry enjoys a more stable financial period and as flying becomes much more common in the Middle East, Asia and other developing regions. A big player in China, Boeing has often been seen as vulnerable to a trade war between the United States and China, a possibility that topped Wall Street's list of worries earlier this month but has receded of late amid softer rhetoric between Washington and Beijing.

U.S. Supreme Court divided over Texas electoral district fight

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 21:24:54 -0400

(image) By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday appeared divided along ideological lines as it heard a bid by Texas to revive Republican-drawn electoral districts thrown out by a lower court for diluting the clout of black and Hispanic voters. Some of the conservative justices seemed willing during arguments in the case to accept that the Republican-led Texas legislature acted in good faith when it adopted new electoral maps in 2013 for state legislative and U.S. congressional seats. Liberal justices seemed skeptical that those maps resolved racial discrimination concerns that caused earlier maps to be invalidated, and questioned whether it was premature to hear the case because a lower court had not yet issued a final ruling on the dispute.

US showing China 'yellow card' on trade, says Hong Kong consul

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 04:45:58 -0400

(image) The United States has issued China with a "yellow card" on trade, said its consul general in Hong Kong Tuesday, in a strongly worded speech which also urged the importance of the city's autonomy for business. US President Donald Trump last month approved plans for steep tariffs on tens of billions of dollars of Chinese imports, while Beijing has slapped duties on key US agricultural exports and threatened to do likewise for the sensitive American soybean industry. Consul General Kurt Tong said China had breached its commitments to the World Trade Organisation to such an extent that it was detrimental to the US, which was now "justified in claiming damages".

UK Jewish groups say disappointed by talks with Labour leader Corbyn on anti-Semitism

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 16:25:22 -0400

(image) By Andrew MacAskill LONDON (Reuters) - Jewish community leaders in Britain said their talks on Tuesday with opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on how to end anti-Semitism in his party had been a "disappointing missed opportunity". Corbyn met with the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council after they organized a protest last month accusing him of failing to tackle anti-Semitism in his party because of a far-left world view hostile to Jews. Before the meeting, Corbyn acknowledged that anti-Semitism had surfaced within his party and apologized for the pain this had caused.

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 10:09:00 -0400

Russia has used its veto 12 times to block UN action targeting the regime of its ally, Bashar al-Assad. In November, it used its veto to block the extension of a UN mechanism to attribute responsibility for chemical weapons attacks.

Eurofighter doubts U.S. will use nuclear certification to tilt German jets bid

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 16:48:28 -0400

(image) By Andrea Shalal BERLIN (Reuters) - The head of Eurofighter on Wednesday said he did not expect the United States to slow certification of the European fighter's ability to carry nuclear weapons as a way to influence a competition to replace Germany's aging 90 Tornado jets. The Eurofighter is a joint project between British defense group BAE, European airplane maker Airbus and Italy's Leonardo. Airbus and Eurofighter on Tuesday submitted six binders of information to the German defense ministry, which has said it will prioritize a European fighter, but has also asked for information about the Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jet and Boeing Co's F-15E and F/A-18E/F jets.

Nikol Pashinyan: from fugitive to victorious protest leader

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 13:25:35 -0400

(image) Armenia's opposition lawmaker Nikol Pashinyan led mass anti-government protests that culminated in the resignation of newly appointed Prime Minister Serzh Sarkisian and has declared he is ready to lead the country. A fortnight ago, few in Armenia would have believed that the 42-year-old could bring tens of thousands of people out onto the streets of Yerevan and other cities, eventually forcing the veteran leader to resign. Before these protests, Pashinyan was mostly associated with the tragic events following the 2008 presidential vote that first brought Sarkisian to power, when 10 people died in clashes between police and supporters of the defeated opposition candidate.
