World International Affairs During the 40th anniversary of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, President Hassan Rohani criticized the U.S. “conspiracy” against the nation and pledged to bolster its military capabilities, including its ballistic missile program. The comments were made as President Donald Trump works to destroy the Iran nuclear deal, which was signed under former President Barack Obama in 2015, and disputes the claims of U.S. intelligence agents that Tehran has complied with the deal. Trump has said that Iran remains dangerous because it is testing ballistic missiles. Reports suggest that Iran has conducted at least two ballistic missile tests over the past month, but that they were unsuccessful. Meanwhile, U.S. allies in the European Union, together with Russia and China, argue that the nuclear deal should remain in place in order to keep Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon. The agreement puts significant curbs on Iran’s nuclear development … [Read more...] about Iran Slams U.S. ‘Conspiracy,’ Pledges to Bolster Military During Anniversary Celebration of 1979 Revolution

We remain hopeful that the U.S. and China can resolve their differences and prevent further harm to U.S. manufacturers and consumers.”— Gregory Dolan, CEOWASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Statement of Gregory Dolan, CEO, Methanol Institute: “Today, China announced that methanol was on a list of $60 billion worth of U.S. imports it plans to apply tariffs on should the U.S. follow through on its July 10th proposal to impose tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports, which also targeted methanol. In this tit-for-tat escalating trade war, both countries would impose 25% tariffs on imported methanol. The Methanol Institute (MI) has strongly urged the U.S. Trade Representative to remove methanol from its list of 6,000 products of Chinese goods. Today, imports of methanol from China are not economic so there is essentially no methanol trade flowing from China to the U.S. The targeting of tariffs on methanol imports from China would … [Read more...] about METHANOL INSTITUTE STATEMENT ON U.S-CHINA PROPOSED TARIFFS
Apple Inc. became the first U.S.-based company with a market value of $1 trillion, four decades after it was cofounded by Steve Jobs in a Silicon Valley garage and later revolutionized the worlds of computing, music, and mobile communications. The consumer-technology giant briefly touched the milestone at 11:48 a.m. in New York trading Thursday, based on share count data the company disclosed in a recent regulatory filing. PetroChina Co. briefly crossed that valuation in late 2007 but slumped quickly as oil prices collapsed in the financial crisis. Other tech giants are not far behind Apple today, with Amazon.com Inc., Alphabet Inc., and Microsoft Corp. worth more than $800 billion each. Since its inception in 1976, Apple has consistently reimagined what a computer can be and defined how humans interact with devices and software. The iMac desktop computer, the iPod, iPhone, and iPad were smash hits, while commercial misses like the Newton and Lisa are still considered pioneering. … [Read more...] about Apple becomes first U.S. company to hit $1 trillion market value

World International Affairs The U.S. could risk forfeiting its central role on the international stage both politically and economically by splitting with its allies and other major powers that oppose upcoming sanctions against Iran, according to two former State Department officials who helped craft the 2015 nuclear deal. In line with President Donald Trump's withdrawal from a 2015 nuclear agreement in May, the U.S. was set to impose Monday the first batch of sanctions that would affect Iran, as well as European and other international companies. The decision would be only the latest of a series of schisms between the Trump administration and the EU, which has continued to endorse the Iran deal. When asked by Newsweek if top U.S. rivals China and Russia could stand to benefit from the split, former State Department Deputy Lead Coordinator and Coordinator for Iran Nuclear Implementation Jarrett Blanc said "yes." "This is not strategic behavior, we're all over the … [Read more...] about U.S. Risks Losing World Power to China and Russia by Splitting with Allies on Iran, Experts Say
