President Trump attacked GM on Twitter, claiming it is now one of the smallest car manufacturers in Detroit.GM says it employs nearly 49,000 union employees in the U.S., more than rival Fiat Chrysler.GM has been investing heavily in China, where it is now one of that nation's largest car manufacturers.President Donald Trump on Friday disdainfully labeled General Motors as "one of the smallest car manufacturers" in Detroit, reprising his call that the automaker move jobs back to the U.S. Something else he might not be happy with: GM is also one of the largest car makers in China. In fact, GM now employs more workers in China than it does members of the United Auto Workers in the U.S. According to its website, the company now has about 58,000 workers in China — that's about 20% more than its domestic UAW workforce, which has dwindled in recent years.Mr. Trump's tweet appears to have come in response to an article from Bloomberg with a headline describing GM as Detroit's … [Read more...] about GM now has more workers in China than UAW employees in the U.S.

Yan Zhang USA TODAY Published 6:01 AM EDT Aug 13, 2019 Now that I've been in the U.S. for four months – on a journalism fellowship for USA TODAY – one thing has become very clear. Shopping may be the No 1. reason Chinese visitors like myself love America. Sure, there's the culture, the sightseeing and, in my case, the work I'm doing. But deep down, we also relish the opportunity to get great deals on products that would be unavailable, too expensive or less reliable in China. Coming to the Washington, D.C., area – and to New York City for 10 days – from Tianjin has been like entering a shopper's paradise. Here's a sampling of what I've bought: • Vitamin supplements. Buy one and get a 50% discount for the second at CVS, half the price of comparable products in China. • The latest electric toothbrush. The price is 80% of the old model in China. • Starbucks ground coffee. My daily sustenance is 60% … [Read more...] about Shopping in the U.S.: Here’s what Chinese tourists buy and why
The remnants of the once mighty storm Barry, the first hurricane of the 2019 season, dumped dangerous amounts of rain as it crawled north through the United States on Monday after coming ashore west of New Orleans at the weekend, Trend reports citing Reuters. Barry, now downgraded to a tropical depression, still packed winds of up to 25 mph and could drop 5 inches or more of rain on a water-logged Louisiana, forecaster Andrew Orrison of the National Weather Service said. That brings the risk of dangerous flash floods from already bloated rivers across much of the gulf region and Mississippi Valley, he said. “We’ll see the winds coming down as the day progresses,” he said. “But the big story is the rain. This is still capable of very heavy rains through the next 24 hours.” Through Monday and Tuesday, the storm will bring 3-to-5 inches of rain with spots of 10-to-15 to eastern Arkansas, western Tennessee, and parts of Missouri and Mississippi, as it heads … [Read more...] about Remnants of storm Barry dump more rain in the U.S. southeast
Measles cases in the U.S. have surged to a new high, eclipsing the total number of cases from all of 1994, the worst in 25 years, the CDC said Thursday. The tally is so high that measles could lose its status as an officially eliminated disease. There have been 971 cases confirmed in 2019 so far, according to the CDC. That's the greatest number since 1994, which had 963 cases in the entire year, and it's a dramatic spike from the 372 cases in 2018. Measles has been reported in 26 states, with New York having the most cases."If these outbreaks continue through summer and fall, the United States may lose its measles elimination status," the CDC said in a statement. "That loss would be a huge blow for the nation and erase the hard work done by all levels of public health." The U.S. started working to end measles with widespread use of the vaccine in 1963, and declared the disease eliminated in 2000, meaning there were no longer sustained outbreaks in this country. Before the measles … [Read more...] about Measles cases in the U.S. break 25-year record, CDC says
