Shipping faces demands to cut CO2

Image copyright Getty Images A battle is under way to force the global shipping industry to play its part in tackling climate change. A meeting of the International Maritime Organisation in London next week will face demands for shipping to radically reduce its CO2 emissions. If shipping doesn’t clean up, it could contribute almost a fifth of the global total of CO2 by 2050. A group of nations led by Brazil, Saudi Arabia, India, Panama and Argentina is resisting CO2…

Tim Cook is right to kick Facebook over its data privacy failings

It’s easy to be cynical about the way Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive, kicked Facebook when it was down this week. Apple has become the most valuable company in the world without having any need to siphon off its customers’ personal data. So taking the moral high ground and declaring privacy a “human right” at a time when Facebook is under fire for leaking the personal information of 50m users looks like an easy decision. Apple has been trying for…

Cosmopolitan drawn into US culture wars as conservatives urge others to follow Walmart’s lead | Business

Even in the digital age, choosing a magazine at the supermarket checkout aisle is an enduring American tradition. Shoppers at the country’s biggest retailer were spoilt for choice this week if they wanted to devour scurrilous tabloid allegations about Hollywood celebrities and the health, sexual proclivities and drinking habits of the British royal family. Impulse-buying one of the most popular women’s magazines at a Walmart, though, is out of the question now that the chain has responded to pressure from…

To mark the centenary of the RAF, the Mail salutes Britain’s bravest Spitfire pilot Douglas Bader 

Douglas Bader was the living embodiment of the RAF motto, ‘Per ardua ad astra’ (‘Through adversity to the stars’).  He lost both his legs in a catastrophic pre-war flying accident and was told he would never walk, or fly, again. Donning artificial legs, he fought to overcome his handicap. Though reluctantly invalided out of the Air Force, he returned to operational duties when war broke out in 1939, as Britain was in desperate need of fighter pilots. Fighter pilot Douglas…

Trump planning to roll back gas mileage standards

The Trump administration is expected to announce soon that it will roll back automobile gas mileage and pollution standards that were a pillar in the Obama administration’s plans to combat climate change. It’s not clear whether the announcement will include a specific number, but Obama-era rules require the fleet of new vehicles to get  54.5 miles per U.S. gallon (4.3 litres/100 km) by 2025. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), applying a new standard based on real world driving, says that works…

Why Do We Make Bad Stock Decisions?

“You’ve got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em,” sang Kenny Rogers in his famous tune “The Gambler.”  But the fact is that most people don’t do this particularly well, especially when it comes to the stock market. Generally, investors tend to hold onto losing stocks for too long and sell winning stocks too soon. Behavioral economists have a term for this: the “disposition effect.” If we acted logically instead of being fallible humans, we would…

Peeps workers still squawking – Portland Press Herald

BETHLEHEM, Pa. — On April 1, hundreds of millions of marshmallow chicks and bunnies called Peeps will peer out from Easter baskets at American children. They are a pastel symbol of Easter joy, but behind the wax-eyed candy is a company at war with its union workforce over rising pension costs – an escalating legal tangle that could soon upend the retirement plans of 10 million Americans. The fight has featured a strike, Twinkies related bankruptcy, irreparably broken friendships, obscene…
