On Thursday, August 16, over 300 new organizations from around the world are publishing editorials on Donald Trump’s “dirty war against the free press”.
Despite growing calls for tighter regulation of Facebook’s surveillance tactics, the social media giant has a plan to get its hands on your personal financial information on top of everything else it already has.
Only a few days before a Trump task force is expected to recommend major U.S. Postal Service reforms, a group of ecommerce and logistics companies have formed a lobbying Coalition to take their case to the people and to Congress – to keep USPS delivery services “reliable and affordable”.
The new Northern Latitudinal Railway (NLR) project launching this year should provide a major economic boost to some of Russia’s most remote northern regions.
A federal appeals court has declared it legal to republish industry standards that are incorporated into federal and state regulations. The industry groups involved had claimed doing so represented copyright and trademark infringement.
Warning: YouTube is targeting young children with malicious videos designed to harm them.
Even as the evidence continues mount that glyphosate, the active herbicide in Monsanto’s Roundup, causes cancer, Monsanto has ramped up its counter-attack on scientists who dare study the impacts of glyphosate and report the truth while brainwashing the public.
Like in the U.S., Canadian government is becoming increasingly predatory and harmful to small businesses.
A business is likely the most valuable asset in a business owner’s financial portfolio. In fact, studies show that 80% of individual wealth comes from the sale of businesses. When you think of it like that, it’s obvious that a business owner would want to know the market value of the business. And yet 90% of the owners of small and medium-sized businesses have never had their business valued.
On July 11, Facebook unveiled its new “trustworthy” news project. The social media giant was developing it, they say, to ensure more reliable news reporting.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce just launched a major campaign to overturn Trump’s reckless tariff policy. They also have one thing working for them that Trump does not: facts that back up their case.
Brazil has been struggling for years to repair its reputation as hopelessly corrupt in both business and government. This week’s bribery convictions of an oil and mining baron and the governor of Rio de Janeiro should help with that.
The U.S. steel pipe-making industry used to be booming. Because of Trump’s steel import tariffs, it could soon see a major slowdown or worse for a number of America's pipe manufacturers.
In February 2017, Trump said Harley-Davidson was a victim of “abuse” in world trade. Now the company is moving jobs outside the country precisely because of Trump’s trade war with the EU.
While other automakers look to investments or acquisitions in disruptive technology, Toyota Motor Corp. just announced it is putting $1 billion into SE Asian ride-sharing company Grab Taxi Holdings Pte. Ltd. It could be a turning point for the whole industry.
With three other major Middle East wins for chemical and gas processing plant work already this year, SNC-LavalinSN continued its roll with a $1.9 billion award for the design and engineering of a new chemical plant in Oman.
This week alone, Facebook revealed two more mistakes in mishandling user data without permission. One was to four Chinese companies over a period of years in a case that may violate a 2011 FTC agreement. The other opened up 14 million users' private posts for four days in May and made them public without their consent. The worst is yet to come.
In recent months, Donald Trump has been on a roll complaining about how Amazon.com is underpaying shipping charges on packages shipped through the U.S. Postal Service. We do not support Amazon’s predatory business practices, but the truth is that Amazon is probably paying what it should in the current circumstances. The issue is considerably more complicated than either side of this argument is explaining.
If you had any doubts about Facebook’s intentions, you can now let go of them and firmly accept that Facebook does not serve the needs of its users but has aligned itself with dark forces to hurt you and your family.
Right after CEO Mark Zuckerberg traveled the world to apologize for the Cambridge Analytica data breach, yet another case of Facebook’s sharing data without user permission just showed up.
Today Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from the EU, Mexico and Canada took effect. Canada fired back with almost $17 billion of tariffs on goods imported from the United States. The trade war is on and it could get ugly.
