Malaysia Airlines to track planes with satellites

Malaysia Airlines has become the first carrier to sign up to a new satellite flight tracking system for its fleet. It comes three years after its MH370 flight bound for Beijing disappeared with 239 people on board. Using a soon-to-be-launched satellite network, the airline will be able to monitor its planes in areas where there is currently no surveillance. They include polar regions and remote areas of oceans not covered by existing systems. Path change The airline reached a deal for the service provided by US-based Aireon, FlightAware and SITAONAIR.

Crisis Management - Pepsi, United and the speed of corporate shame

United Airlines has leapt into a brand disaster of mythic proportions. In a scandal that’s still evolving quickly, the company’s employees had Chicago Department of Aviation officers forcefully remove a passenger — a paying customer sitting in his seat — from an overbooked flight. Around the world, people watched a video of the bloodied man being dragged down the aisle. The company’s stock lost hundreds of millions of market cap, but the damage to the brand (and future sales) may be far higher. The incident, along with some other recent brand missteps, highlight some basic realities about the world companies operate ...

World Bank puts Africa’s 2017 growth at 2.6%

The World Bank has revealed that economic growth in Sub-Saharan Africa is rebounding this year after registering the worst decline in more than two decades last year. According to the latest Africa’s Pulse, which is the World Bank’s bi-annual analysis of the state of African economies, the region is showing signs of recovery, and regional growth is projected to reach 2.6% in 2017. The Bank however says recovery remains weak, with growth expected to rise only slightly above population growth, a pace that hampers efforts to boost employment and reduce poverty. The continent’s largest economies; Nigeria, South Africa, and Angola are seeing a ...

BMW strike halts Mini car production

Workers at three BMW plants in the UK are staging a one-day strike in a row over pensions. The walkout, the first by BMW staff in Britain, is part of a wave of stoppages at the carmaker over the closure of a final-salary pension scheme. The Unite union, which organised the action that has halted output of the Mini, called the strike a last resort and accused BMW of "pension robbery". BMW urged the union to return to the negotiating table. According to Unite, picket lines will be in place for 24 hours at three BMW's plants: Cowley in Oxfordshire, where the firm makes the ...

Trade unions 'will have to adapt'

Labour MP Peter Kyle says agency staff are "one of the most disempowered groups" in the UK and raises his "frustrations" with the situation of agency staff in the Sports Direct warehouse in Shirebrook. Steve Turner says trade unions must "adapt" and find ways to "best represent" people in the changing economy. The Assistant General Secretary of Unite tells the committee he is "in dialogue with Mike Ashley" and quips that he is "hopeful" of being able to sit in this committee alongside Mr Ashley to discuss about what an "exemplary employer" he has become.     Source: bbc.com

Africa could be the great economic success of this century

Over the last eight years, America has written a new chapter in our relationship with Africa. Under President Obama’s leadership, we have worked to transition our support for the continent from aid to trade and empowerment. We have started to build a full, equal, advanced economic partnership — a partnership that holds as much promise for African countries as it does for America. This week’s U.S.-Africa Business Forum is a key component of that new partnership. Africa is primed to be one of the great economic success stories of this century. Incomes are rising. Investments in infrastructure and technology are accelerating growth ...

Technology, media, pharmaceutical and other companies, along with major corporate lobbying groups, filed legal briefs on Friday in support of a Microsoft Corp lawsuit that aims to strike down a law preventing companies from telling customers the government is seeking their data.

I died, was resurrected - Mugabe jokes over death rumours

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has poured scorn over the latest rumours of his health, joking that he had died and was resurrected. Mr Mugabe, 92, was arriving back in the country at the main airport in Harare and appeared jovial as he disembarked. Flight data had suggested his plane was heading to East Asia but that it instead went to Dubai. Mr Mugabe said he had gone there for a family matter. In May, Mr Mugabe's wife, Grace, said that he would rule from the grave. The flight path and other rumours had led some to speculate that Mr Mugabe had suffered a serious ...

Apple faces 13bn-euro Irish tax bill

Ireland should recover up to €13bn (£11bn) from Apple in back taxes, the European Commission has ruled. After a three-year long investigation, it has concluded that the US firm's tax benefits are illegal. The Commission said this enabled it to pay substantially less than other businesses, in effect paying a corporate tax rate of no more than 1%. Ireland's finance minister, Michael Noonan, said that he disagreed "profoundly" with the decision. "Member states cannot give tax benefits to selected companies - this is illegal under EU state aid rules," said Commissioner Margrethe Vestager. "The Commission's investigation concluded that Ireland granted illegal tax benefits to Apple, ...

Africa's biggest economy has crashed into recession

Africa's largest economy, Nigeria, has officially entered a recession following two consecutive quarters of contraction in the nation. GDP shrank by 2.06% in the second quarter of 2016, following on from a 0.36% shrinking in the first quarter of the year, according to data released by the country's National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) on Wednesday. Those two consecutive quarters of economic shrinkage mean that the country is now in its first recession in more than 20 years. Recession in Nigeria may be an unwelcome development, but it is not unexpected. Earlier in the year, Godwin Emefiele, the governor of the Central Bank of ...

Yen surge squeezes exporters, oil up as dollar slips

The profit-eroding rise in the yen kept the Nikkei <.N225> to a slight 0.2 percent gain despite a big bounce in the energy and healthcare sectors.

Swiss police raid UEFA as Panama Papers scandal spreads

Swiss police raided the European soccer body UEFA on Wednesday to seize information about a contract disclosed in the Panama Papers that was signed by Gianni Infantino, now head of the global soccer body FIFA. The impact of the leaked documents from a Panamanian law firm is snowballing, with Iceland facing a political crisis after its prime minister stepped aside on Tuesday following revelations about his wife’s finances. Recently elected Infantino joined a growing list of public figures and political leaders whose financial arrangements have come under scrutiny after the release of the 11.5 million documents, which have caused public outrage over ...

SocGen warns of ‘tidal wave of corporate default’

The latest offering from the perma-bear community, delivered by Albert Edwards at SocGen, is, well, bearish. US corporate profits are suffering a "gut wrenching slump," Mr Edwards warns, adding "whole economy profits never normally fall this deeply without a recession unfolding. The economy will surely be swept away by a tidal wave of corporate default." Mr Edwards says the recent rebound in the S&P 500 is misleading. "Ignore this noise", he insists, "Recent whole economy profits data show that while the Fed plays its games, the economic cycle is withering and writhing from within." He adds: Historically, when whole economy profits fall this ...

WhatsApp expands encryption to protect messages

WhatsApp has reinforced the default encryption settings for users so that all messages will now be accessible only to the sender and recipient. The popular service owned by Facebook, the social-media company, began applying "end-to-end" encryption to standard messages sent on Android smartphones in 2014. The company says it is now using a powerful form of encryption to protect the security of photos, videos, group chats and voice calls in addition to the text messages sent by more than a billion users around the globe. After gradually expanding to other formats, WhatsApp confirmed on Tuesday that the encryption now works with all forms ...

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday cautioned state governments and the private sector against engaging foreign partners without conducting proper background checks.

News Corp denies rumors of Twitter bid

Rupert Murdoch's News Corp said rumors about the company's interest in buying microblogging site Twitter Inc or building a stake in it were untrue. Twitter's shares, which rose as much as 14 percent, pared some gains and were up 5.2 percent at $17.55 in late afternoon trading. The rumors had lifted the stock from a record low. Unconfirmed chatter about potential News Corp interest in Twitter circulated on Wednesday, with the rumors intensifying after a CNBC segment, tech website Re/code said. The social media site was evaluated as a takeover target because of the company's shrinking stock price, Re/code said. A spokesman for News ...

Exclusive: Saudi-backed shipping line UASC resumes Iran business

United Arab Shipping Company is resuming business with Iran following the lifting of Western sanctions, despite the deep-seated political rivalry between the Islamic Republic and Saudi Arabia, one of the shipping line's main shareholders. A nuclear deal between world powers and Iran led to the removal on Saturday of international oil export prohibitions as well as restrictions on banking, insurance and shipping. Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia has grave reservations about the lifting of sanctions on its main regional rival, with which it cut ties earlier this month after its Tehran embassy was attacked following Riyadh's execution of a Shi'ite cleric. Other Gulf nations ...

Apple seeks nod to open India stores amid concerns of slowing sales growth

Apple Inc has applied to set up its own stores in India, one of the world's fastest growing smartphone markets, as the iPhone-maker looks to tap new opportunities amid worries of slowing growth in its main markets. Apple sells its iPhones, iPads and Macs in India through third party resellers, and industry analysts estimate that the Cupertino, California-based company has less than a 2 percent share in India's smartphone market, dominated by cheaper brands. The company has filed an application with India's Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion to open its own stores, Amitabh Kant, secretary at the federal trade ministry unit ...

Kenya aims to cut external, fiscal deficits

Kenya's economy is expected to grow 6.1 percent in 2016 and the government wants to trim ballooning budget and current account deficits to steady the economy, its finance minister said on Thursday. Kenya, East Africa's biggest economy, set a budget deficit target of 8.7 percent for the 2015/2016 fiscal year starting July, unnerving some investors who were also uneasy about Kenya's current account deficit, which stood at above 8 percent. The current account deficit was fuelled by a growth of imports like oil and consumer goods which was not matched by growth in exports. The budget deficit swelled due to increased spending ...
