Like Mumbai, New Delhi and other cities, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Bakersfield and other California cities are under siege by toxic waste in the air caused by diesel-fueled combustion engines.  California wrote laws protecting its people. VW violated the law by 40x.  Now those VWs will have to be scrapped and reparations paid to the people who breathed that stuff and the car owners who are both injured by air and ripped off on resale.
Five lakh diesel vehicles in the US 'cheated' in the emission tests.

Southwest is becoming more efficient and more capable by scrapping hangar queens before they hurt profits.  Less intelligent airline managers will bet that they can get one more year out of planes nearing the end of their useful life.  How'd that work for for airlines crashing due to bad estimates in the past.
Southwest Airlines Co (LUV.N) on Thursday reported first-quarter profit above estimates and said it will retire old planes earlier than planned, rolling back its growth plans and taking some competitive heat off rivals.

Throwing around the arbitrary $7B is hazardous for World Trade.

The $7B will be offset $ for $ by American tariffs on French wine and German autos.  EU bulls### continues.  Remember the French champion computer maker, Machines Bull-s### from the '60s? Anyone? Anyone?

Re: "transform Saudi Aramco from an oil company into an energy and industrial conglomerate".  Texas Inc. is already doing this. The old fogies in the TX legislature and the TX Congressional delegation are yet to catch on.  
Politicians that deny science also deny their 'waste not want not' roots.  Where would TX be today without windmills and barbed wire?
Saudi Arabia will announce a comprehensive plan to prepare the kingdom for the post-oil era on April 25, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said.

Underground waste disposal makes OK more earthquake prone.  If CA consolidated the waste from every septic system in CA and injected it around Bakersfield then and only then would CA be as bad off as OK.
The USGS' new model now factors in man-made risks.

The thing about poker is that if it wanted to, Google could use multispectral facial imaging of every player at the table at 100 frames per second to make bluffing impossible. Dark glasses or not, Google facial imaging could pick up every facial tell from from every player.  No amount of practice in a mirror could help a bluffer bluff.

Totally misleading headline.  VW offered $B to customers who have polluted America for the extra diesel fuel that their cars will consume if VW can get them back under the allowable pollution limit.  Almost all of the cars in CA will be taken off the road. It is questionable whether they will be shipped to other states but they will be stopped and taken of the road if they ever return to CA.  The cost of that..Priceless.
A US federal judge last month gave VW and regulators until Thursday to agree on a fix for nearly 600,000 diesel cars on US roads implicated by VW's emissions test-rigging scandal.

This could be very good thing for India. Depending upon how track laying/maintainence contracts are written, the crushed rock/ballast Dept. won't have an incentive to short the track laying and tie spiking operations. A systems management contract should anticipate failure conditions and reward contractors for system reliability, not cubic meters of gravel or numbers of RR ties.
Indian Railways has finalised plans to rope in private firms to build 358km of tracks on three stretches at an estimated cost of Rs 3,016 crore.

Not just one phone: The ACLU has compiled a map of every state where tech companies are being compelled to hack a mobile device in the name of the All Writs Act.

Actual growth was 3.4% the -2% due to getting rid of OPEC premiums is gone for good and should not be counted.
