Good Monday Morning, Fellow Seekers. Fresh off his four minutes of stage time with President Donald Trump in Wilkes-Barre last week, GOP U.S. Senate candidate Lou Barletta is launching a statewide bus tour, all the better, we suppose, to build that name recognition that even Trump knows he lacks. "People are just starting to know him - but I've known him for a long time," said Trump, whose relationship with Barletta goes all to the way back to those heady days of 2016. Barletta's "Red, White and Lou" tour (we see what you did there) will crisscross the state throughout August He'll be joined by his family and his golden retriever Reilly, the campaign said in a statement. "We will be visiting communities all across Pennsylvania, bringing our hopeful message of putting Pennsylvania first and contrasting our message with [Democratic incumbent] Bob Casey's radical obstructionist agenda," Barletta said. "I am looking forward to meeting so many Pennsylvanians who share our … [Read more...] about GOP U.S. Senate candidate Lou Barletta launches statewide bus tour

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
