For nearly four years, he worked in one of the three cavernous Ford Motor assembly plants in Chongqing, a sprawling metropolis in southwestern China with almost 20 million people. Every day, he spent long hours putting brake fluid into the Ford Focus compact cars that glided past on the assembly line. But with car sales plunging as the Chinese economy slows, Mr. Huang was laid off in January along with thousands of other workers at Ford’s factories, which are part of a joint venture with a Chongqing automaker.

Known as the Star of Hope, the former Odd Fellows hall is beyond decrepit, with boarded-up windows, crumbling walls and ceilings, and a general aura of woebegone weirdness. This is where Robert Indiana, one of America’s most celebrated artists, lived and worked in semiseclusion for four decades. It’s also where the Pop Art sensation, best known for his colorful 1960s prints and sculptures of the word “LOVE,” died last May at the age of 89, surrounded by several tons of old newspapers, dozens of stuffed animals, a lifetime of bric-a-brac, and thousands of paintings, sculptures, prints, poems, and journals — none of them … [Read more...] about In wake of famed artist Robert Indiana’s death, a tangle of allegations
Denver Post sports writer Patrick Saunders posts his Rockies Mailbag every other week on Tuesdays during the season and once per month during the offseason. Pose a Rockies — or MLB — related question for the Rockies Mailbag. Hey Patrick! I’ve never loved Charlie Blackmon in center field. I’ve always seen him as sub-par defensively and would rather not see him burn himself out playing center in that huge outfield at Coors Field. I know Garrett Hampson is naturally an infielder but what are the odds they try him out in center and to utilize his crazy speed?— Blake Coulter, Littleton Blake, there certainly is a chance that Hampson gets a look in center field during spring training, but David Dahl also will get a shot, as well Ian Desmond, whom both general manager Jeff Bridich and manager Bud Black have said will move from first base to the outfield. Hampson remains in the running to replace DJ LeMahieu at second base, where he’ll be competing with Ryan … [Read more...] about Rockies Mailbag: Fans not impressed with lack of offseason moves from Bridich and Co.
By Asa Fitch WSJ Mon., Jan. 28, 2019 Nvidia Corp. lowered its revenue outlook for its fiscal fourth quarter by $500 million because of what it said was weakening demand in China and a rocky cloud-computing business, a revision that wiped nearly 15% from the chip maker’s already beleaguered shares. The reduced expectations for the quarter came on top of a revenue projection from Nvidia in November that already was $700 million less than what analysts at the time had expected, underlining a deteriorating outlook for a company investors had coveted as it found new uses for its chips in cryptocurrency mining and artificial intelligence. Jensen Huang, Nvidia’s founder and chief executive, called the quarter “a real punch in the gut.” It “was an extraordinary, unusually turbulent, and disappointing quarter,” he said in a letter Monday to shareholders. The Santa Clara, Calif., company’s stock sank to about $136.70 in afternoon … [Read more...] about Nvidia Lowers Guidance on Weakness in China, Cloud Computing

System in Stock-Trading Scheme Supported by ByMatthew Goldstein Jan. 15, 2019 Companies use the Securities and Exchange Commission’s corporate filing system to share market-moving news with investors and the public. Getting an early peek at those filings would be very helpful to a thief. That was the motivation for two computer hackers who tried to penetrate the system, known as Edgar, according to an indictment unsealed on Tuesday by federal prosecutors in New Jersey. The authorities charged two men, both of whom are believed to be Ukranian nationals, in a scheme to hack into the commission’s database and steal secret information that they either could trade on or sell to others. Prosecutors said that by hacking into the Edgar system, the men, Artem … [Read more...] about U.S. Charges 2 With Hacking Into S.E.C. System in Stock-Trading Scheme
