    Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg said Friday a breakup of big US technology would not address "underlying issues" facing the sector and suggested that such a move could help rivals in China. Sandberg, interviewed on CNBC television, was asked about the latest calls to break up Facebook and other major Silicon Valley firms which dominate key sectors. "You could break us up, you could break other tech companies up, but you actually don't address the underlying issues people are concerned about," Sandberg said in the interview. Sandberg said the social network used by more than two billion people was...
  • 'I'm like a breakup he can't get over': James Comey joins Stephen Colbert and mocks Trump

    CBS's "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert could barely contain his glee as he started his show on Tuesday night. "It's Comey Day, everybody!" he announced to his studio audience, who cheered wildly. Sure enough, Colbert and former FBI director James Comey - promoting his new book "A Higher Loyalty" - had plenty to discuss in regards to President Trump, the Russia investigation and much more. While making fun of Trump is one of Colbert's favorite activities, Comey was pretty even-keeled - until Colbert asked him about the president's tweeting habits. "In the last few days, he has called you 'Slippery...

    We recently talked about South Carolina and their ongoing discussions of a “trigger” system which might allow them to declare that they were seceding from the country if Second Amendment rights are infringed. While this is still little more than a thought experiment in my opinion, I offered the following thoughts on how the country is looking more and more like a nation divided, possibly beyond the point of reconciliation. “This is almost entirely a cultural divide. You can easily pick out the issues of the day and see how the various state legislatures have divided into two camps,...

    "You see judge shopping, or what's gone on with these people, they immediately run to the 9th Circuit," Trump said. President Trump said Wednesday that he has "absolutely" considered proposals that would split up the 9th Circuit, where judges have blocked two of his executive actions. "Absolutely, I have," Trump said of considering 9th circuit breakup proposals during a far-ranging interview with the Washington Examiner at the White House on Wednesday. "There are many people that want to break up the 9th Circuit. It's outrageous." "Everybody immediately runs to the 9th Circuit. And we have a big country. We have...

    I feel like I need to address the elephant-in-the-room on this blog, since you guys have been with me through thick and thin. When I first got engaged, you were the first ones I wanted to tell. I guess you have seen by now that the wedding — that was supposed to happen last weekend — was called off. I’m sure you’ve seen this has been all over the media, but this is a painful time for family and friends and I would just really appreciate your prayers. I know God’s plan is greater than anything else, and Tripp and...

    Paris (AFP) - The largest ice shelf in the Antarctic peninsula is being thinned by warmer seas and air and could catastrophically break up, scientists said on Wednesday. The loss of the Larsen C ice shelf could occur within a century but an earlier collapse cannot be ruled out, with major consequences for global sea levels, they said. "We now know that two different processes are causing Larsen C to thin and become less stable," said Paul Holland from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) who led the new research. "If this vast ice shelf... was to collapse, it would allow...

    Google has been the target of repeated anti-trust scrutiny in Europe over the last decade. Today’s Financial Times is reporting that the European parliament is on the verge of taking even more drastic steps, preparing a plan that would call for the breakup of the search giant, specifically the “unbundling [of] search engines from other commercial services.” […] When asked by Financial Times why a drastic measure like a breakup was necessary, Ramon Tremosa, a Spanish member of the EU parliment who sponsored the motion, said the commission could not “ask the secret of [Google’s] algorithm” and was seeking other...

    KAMLOOPS, B.C. - A 22-year-old B.C. woman is suing her ex-boyfriend to pay tuition for a class she says she failed due to distress over the breakup. Roopam Plawn, a marketing student at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, says in her notice of claim that she is seeking $500 for the class, $600 for anxiety, depression, insomnia and loss of working time and performance and $250 for "severe distress." She also wants Jasmeet Ahluwalia to pay court costs. Plawn says in the court document that she met the international student in September 2013, they broke up in early 2014, got...

    DONETSK, April 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The leadership of the recently self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic plans to hold a referendum simultaneously with east Ukraine’s Luhansk region, co-chairman of the Donetsk People’s Republic presidium Denis Pushilin told ITAR-TASS. “A referendum will be held no later than on May 11 and it is highly probable that Luhansk will also hold it with us no later than on May 11. Ludansk just has to confirm similar wording of the question. Our question is as follows, “Do you support the independence of Donetsk people’s republic?” Pushilin said. In his words, sovereignty gives the right and opportunity...

    Former FDIC Chief Bair: JPMorgan Worth More in Pieces Friday, 25 May 2012 12:13 PM By Forrest Jones JPMorgan Chase and all other big banks should be broken up, says Sheila Bair, former head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Big banks today are hard to manage, as evidenced by JPMorgan's recent $2 billion hedging loss, and they don't add too much value for shareholders anyway. Breaking them up would benefit all involved and create a more efficient financial services industry, Bair writes in a Fortune column. "Whatever economies the megabanks achieve from their size are more than offset by...

    (Reuters) - A collapse of the euro and break-up of the European Union would have catastrophic consequences for the global financial system, billionaire investor George Soros was quoted as saying. "Today, the euro is potentially endangering the political cohesion of the European Union," .. "If the common currency were to break down, it will lead to the break up of the European Union itself. And this will be catastrophic not only for Europe but also for the global financial system." The euro zone crisis is "more serious and more threatening than the crash of 2008," the Economic Times reported, quoting...

    The 17 eurozone states and six other EU countries agreed early Friday to create a new treaty that will allow them to introduce stricter fiscal rules in the hope of containing a worsening debt crisis, but Britain's prime minister immediately threatened to block the new accord. The failure to get agreement among all 27 members of the European Union at a summit meeting in Brussels reflected in large part a deep split between France and Germany on the one hand and Britain on the other. France and Germany are the two largest economies in the eurozone; Britain does not use...

    The rough politics of European adjustment Nov 30th, 2010 by Michael Pettis Posted in Euro If Europe is going to “resolve” the current crisis in an orderly way, it is going to have to move very quickly – not just for the obvious financial reasons, but for much narrower political reasons. I am pretty sure that the evolution of European politics over the next few years will make an orderly solution progressively more difficult. /snip My skepticism was strengthened by the historical argument – no fiscally fragmented currency union had ever survived a real global liquidity contraction. /snip I have...
