Apple to start making iPhones in India

Apple iPhone sales are cooling off in China with local competitors rising and the U.S. and European markets seem to have reached smartphone saturation, so Apple is turning its eyes towards one of the biggest and most underdeveloped phone markets currently: India. After months of negotiations with the Indian government, Apple is finally ready to start making iPhones in the world’s second most populous nation. Apple’s Taiwanese manufacturing partner Wistron will start making iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s within 4 to 6 weeks … Read Full Thread

Android O makes adding custom ringtones a piece of cake

We have Android 7 Nougat running on less than 3% of Android devices, but Google has already officially announced the next version of its operating system: Android O. We only have a general outline of the major focus of this Android update: it will be mostly about battery life, but some other neat improvements are also coming. And while it will probably be a year or more until it arrives to a meaningful number of phones, here is one welcome new feature in Android O: it will allow you to easily set a custom ringtone for calls, notifications … Read Full Thread

All Drill, No Pump: Oil Producers Are Leaving Thousands of U.S. Wells Unfinished

U.S. shale producers are drilling at the highest rate in 18 months but have left a record number of wells unfinished in the largest oilfield in the country–a sign that output may not rise as swiftly as drilling activity would indicate.
Rising U.S. shale output has rattled OPEC’s most influential exporter Saudi Arabia and pushed oil prices to a near four-month low on Wednesday. U.S. production gains are frustrating Saudi-led attempts by the world’s top oil exporters to cut supply, drain record-high inventories and lift prices.
Investors watch data on the number of rigs deployed in North American oil and gas fields as a leading indicator for output. But the rising rig count and frenetic drilling activity in the Permian Basin in West Texas is not all about pumping oil.
During the 2014-2016 downturn in global oil prices, the number of wells left incomplete grew as companies shut down rigs, laid off workers and retreated from the fields. When prices picked up, operators were expected to ..

The NHL Is Headed to China

The National Hockey League is drafting big plans to expand hockey’s popularity in China .
League officials are putting the finishing touches on a pair of exhibition games between the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings for this September, just as local Chinese officials and businessmen discuss investing in an NHL franchise in hopes of leveraging a team’s branding back in China, the Globe and Mail reports .
“Our understanding is, they’re looking at building hundreds of rinks and arenas and looking for ways to introduce the game to people throughout the country–and that’s something we’ve been interested in exploring at all levels in the game,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, who’s traveling to Beijing next week for a press conference likely to unveil the exhibition schedule, told the Toronto newspaper.
Spending on all Chinese sports, both recreational and professional, adds up to 0.6% of China’s GDP, compared to the U.S. rate of 2.6%, according to brand consultancy Millward Brown C..

Credit Suisse CEO Got a Huge Raise After Bank’s Second Straight Year in the Red

Credit Suisse Chief Executive Tidjane Thiam’s pay for his first full year in the job swelled to 11.9 million Swiss francs ($12 million), the 2016 annual report of Switzerland’s second-biggest bank showed on Friday.
This compared with the 4.57 million francs he earned in 2015 after joining the bank on June 22.
The report also showed Credit Suisse‘s


bonus pool rose 6% to 3.09 billion francs. That followed a second straight year in the red for the bank amid a major restructuring and steep penalties for the sale of toxic mortgage debt in the run-up to the financial crisis.
“Overall, the board considered Mr Thiam’s strong leadership, consistent execution of the group’s communicated strategy, effective delivery of cost efficiencies, principled and ethical conduct, and his role in driving the group towards a stronger capital position in determining that Mr Thiam had met his performance targets set for the year,” the report said.

He Treated The Very First Ebola Cases 40 Years Ago. Then He Watched The World Forget.

This article is part of HuffPost’s Project Zero campaign, a yearlong series on neglected tropical diseases and efforts to fight them.
KINSHASA, Congo ― In early 2014, few people worried that the Ebola virus , which is up to 90 percent fatal, would pose a global threat. So the World Health Organization sent shockwaves around the world when it announced that Ebola was spreading out of control in West Africa .
Before the epidemic was over two years later, it had killed thousands of people. They died in terrifying and painful ways, often passing the disease on to family members before and even after death. Doctors and aid workers died, people who should have been able to stay safe while offering care.
But not everyone who is exposed to the Ebola virus, which spreads through contact with blood or other bodily fluids, falls ill. Such is the case of Dr. Jean-Jacques Muyembe-Tamfum, who in 1976 became the first scientist to come into contact with Ebola and survive.
The Congolese virologist..

Ford, the new aircraft carrier President Donald Trump praised recently, is costing some $13 billion to build. That doesn’t count the airplanes. It’s the most expensive naval vessel in history, and it will fit easily into the “massive” military buildup Trump has demanded.
But at Camp Lejeune, the sprawling Marine Corps base where the working-class military lives, trains and deploys, there’s not enough money for Cpl. Edward L. Kiser, an anti-tank gunner, ..

One Little Girl Beat The Deadliest Form Of Tuberculosis. She Is Very Lucky.

WASHINGTON ― When Baltimore resident Arjun kisses his 6-year-old daughter’s forehead, it’s not always just a sign of affection.
His daughter, Sujata, is onto him. “Is that a temperature kiss?” she asks.
Arjun compulsively checks his little girl’s temperature for a reason. Sujata is the survivor of the “first well-described case” of extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis in a young child in the U.S., according to her physicians.
Tuberculosis is the world’s biggest killer among infectious diseases, and extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis ― or XDR-TB, which is resistant to the most effective treatment regimens available ― is the most dangerous form of the disease. It has a survival rate of just 30 to 50 percent , and that’s for those who receive treatment.
Sujata was declared to be in remission in 2015, but her family still worries the illness might come back. Her family is so nervous about the stigma around the disease that they asked not to be identified by their real names i..

Jimmy Kimmel Montage Proves Donald Trump Is A Mover, Not A Shaker

President Donald Trump may have vowed to shake up the political system during his 2016 election campaign.

“I don’t know what this indicates, but when Donald Trump is in a meeting, he sits down, he has a tendency to move stuff,” said Kimmel.
