Europe to Impose Tariffs in 16-Year Trade Fight With U.S.

PARIS — The European Union said Monday that it would begin imposing sweeping tariffs on around $4 billion worth of American aircraft, food, drinks and other products beginning Tuesday, an action cleared by the World Trade Organization last month after it said Europe could retaliate against the United States for years of illegal subsidies given to Boeing.

The decision, which stems from a 16-year-old dispute before the global trade body, comes after the Trump administration last year decided to impose tariffs on as much as $7.5 billion in European exports annually as retaliation for what the W.T.O. ruled were illegal subsidies given to the European airplane maker Airbus, Boeing’s main rival.

European officials, however, say they are hoping for a settlement between the two countries that would end to the tit-for-tat tariffs once and for all, perhaps even before President Trump leaves office on Jan. 20 to make way for

Phil Collins’ Ex Wife Allegedly Says She Divorced Him Over Bad Hygiene

Phil Collins and Orianne Cevey, his wife of nearly 16 years, ended their second marriage back in August. While the two parties were on the same page about the official split, there were disagreements when the time came to divide up property. Cevey, claiming that Collins promised a $33 million dollar Miami mansion, took matters into her own hands when she stormed the property with four armed guards last month. Now, Cevey is further defending her stake in the mansion.

In new documents filed in the case, according to TMZ, Cevey noted a deciding factor in ending their marriage — and it was Collins’ alleged poor hygiene. Cevey claims that when they rekindled their relationship back in 2015, Collins offered her an ultimatum. The singer reportedly promised a 50 percent stake in the property if she divorced her then husband. Cevey took Collins up on the offer, but reportedly claims

Dr. Ben Carson, campaign adviser David Bossie latest in Trump orbit to test positive for COVID-19

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, tested positive for the coronavirus Monday morning after experiencing symptoms that prompted him to receive a test — becoming the latest member in Trump’s orbit to contract the virus.

“Secretary Carson has tested positive for the coronavirus,” his deputy chief of staff Coalter Baker told ABC News in a statement. “He is in good spirits and feels fortunate to have access to effective therapeutics which aid and markedly speed his recovery.”

Markets Rally on News of Pfizer’s Coronavirus Vaccine: Live Updates

  • Stocks on Wall Street fell short of a record on Monday, as a late retreat pulled back a soaring market.

  • A relief-fueled rally had lifted the S&P 500 by as much as 3.9 percent earlier in the day, after the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer said early data showed that its coronavirus vaccine appeared 90 percent effective. The announcement followed news on Saturday that Joseph R. Biden Jr. had enough votes in the Electoral College to clinch the presidency, a sign that the American vote, which some investors had worried could spiral into a chaotic period if President Trump lost, appeared to proceed more or less normally.

  • But the S&P 500 ended up just 1.2 percent by the end of trading, short of its Sept. 2 record. The Dow Jones industrial average rose about 3 percent.

  • The largest technology stocks, seen both as safe bets during

40 years of groundbreaking radio astronomy

The Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) is a radio astronomy telescope facility located near Socorro, New Mexico. The observatory consists of 27 enormous dishes, each 82 feet (25 meters) in diameter, arranged in a Y-shaped formation that allows them to act like a single colossal telescope stretching 22 miles (36 kilometers) across — roughly one and a half times the size of Washington D.C.

Radio telescopes at the Very Large Array.

Radio astronomers peer at the universe in radio waves, a band that sits at the leftmost side of the electromagnetic spectrum, meaning they have long wavelengths ranging from about 0.04 inches (1 millimeter) to more than 62 miles (100 km). Researchers can use light in this band to better understand a huge variety of cosmic phenomena, including planets, stars, gas and dust clouds, galaxies, pulsars and black holes.

Warner Bros TV Group President And Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Gregorian To Exit

Lisa Gregorian, Warner Bros Television Group’s president and chief marketing officer, is exiting at the end of the year, WarnerMedia said Monday. She had served in those roles since May 2010 and has been at the company more than three decades.

Karen Miller, currently EVP Creative Services, will absorb some of Gregorian’s duties after her exit, including leading Marketing Operations and Creative Services for the TV group. Miller will report to Channing Dungey, the incoming WBTV chairman who begins next year.

It’s the latest big executive move for WBTV, after president Susan Rovner exited in September (she landed a big role at NBCUniversal last month). Dungey came over from Netflix in October to succeed Peter Roth, who is exiting the studio after 22 years.
