Stocks retreat as trade truce doubts return

London: Deflating hopes of a swift resolution to the Sino-US trade war knocked world stocks off a three-week high on Tuesday, while recession warning lights in US bond markets weighed on the dollar.Optimism over a rapprochement between US President Donald Trump and China’s Xi Jinping at the weekend G20 meeting was replaced by scepticism and left Wall Street braced for another day in the red.Adding to market jitters was an inversion of the short end of the US yield curve in bond markets, which historically has signalled a US recession.Asian markets had seen Japan’s Nikkei close 2.4 per cent lower...

A year after switching from the iPhone to the Google Pixel, I’m sad to admit it wasn’t worth it

Apple's iPhone has dominated the smartphone market of late, holding the highest smartphone revenue in the first half of 2018, according to Strategy Analytics. iPhones run Apple's iOS software, which some tech reviewers find to be a more secure operating system than Google Pixel's Android software. But Android tends to beat iOS on customization, app selection, and cloud integration, according to reviews. After 5 years with an iPhone, I decided to put Android to the test and buy the Google Pixel. A year later, I wish I hadn't switched.   Every time my brother downloaded a new song or app, it...

Enormous commiserations to French DJ Martin Solveig, the latest person to be filmed doing something in public that apparently doesn’t reflect who he is. The this-is-not-who-I-am defence gets a lot of run-outs these days, as cameraphones catch non-racist people being racist on buses, non-homophobic people screaming abuse at gay people outside a nightclub, or any of the other variants that increasingly adorn the age. The point is: this is not who they are. Very occasionally, the person saying the thing is saying it on a stage, in front of a large audience and multiple television cameras, and is deploying remarks...

A selfie — really? This photo from the streets of Paris ‘captures the spirit of an era’

The worst rioting to rock Paris in years left a trail a destruction and vandalism in recent days, and ultimately led French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe to announce a suspension of what initially provoked the backlash: higher fuel taxes. What began as a protest in October of President Emmanuel Macron’s proposal to increase fuel taxes turned into a broader outcry across the country against policies that favor the elite at the expense of the working class. A popular Russian blogger and photographer by the name of Ilya Varlamov did a world-class job of capturing the essence of the protests. This...
