Chipotle receives subpoena related to Ohio illness incident

Chipotle receives subpoena related to Ohio illness incident Over the past three years, the company has faced a number of subpoenas regarding sicknesses linked to its restaurants following an E. Coli, salmonella and norovirus outbreaks at the company's outlets dating back to late 2015 that affected hundreds across several states. The latest subpoena is the fourth and is part of an ongoing criminal investigation being conducted by the U.S. Attorney's office for the Central District of California. Last August, a type of bacteria found in meat and pre-cooked food left at unsafe temperatures was responsible for making hundreds of people ill in a Powell, Ohio restaurant.


Floods stall fertilizer shipments in latest blow to U.S. farmers

Floods stall fertilizer shipments in latest blow to U.S. farmers Farm supplier CHS Inc has dozens of loaded barges trapped on the flood-swollen Mississippi River near St. Louis - about 500 miles from the company's two Minnesota distribution hubs.

Putin pledges to help 'normalise' US-North Korea relations as he hosts Kim Jong-un in eastern Russia

Putin pledges to help 'normalise' US-North Korea relations as he hosts Kim Jong-un in eastern Russia Kim Jong-un met Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday at a summit designed to show that Washington is not the only power able to set the agenda on Pyongyang's nuclear programme. The two men embarked on a day of talks on an island off the Russian Pacific city of Vladivostok two months after the North Korean leader's summit with US President Donald Trump ended in disagreement, cooling hopes of a breakthrough in the decades-old nuclear row. Mr Putin and Mr Kim, in their first ever face-to-face encounter, shook hands outside the summit venue, a university campus, then sat down in a conference room to exchange greetings in front of the television cameras. Mr Putin said he hoped Mr Kim's visit would "help us better understand by what means we can reach a settlement on the Korean peninsula, what we can do together, what Russia can do to support the positive processes now underway." "Without question we welcome your efforts to develop dialogue between the Koreas, and to normalise North Korean-US relations," Mr Putin said. Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, welcomes North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un during their meeting in Vladivostok Credit: AP Mr Kim, who had arrived in Vladivostok a day earlier on board his armoured train, told Mr Putin the meeting would help strengthen and develop ties between Russia and North Korea, which share a long history of friendship. “As world attention is focused on the Korean Peninsula, there will be very meaningful dialogue for us to jointly assess the Korean peninsula policies and share, coordinate and study our views,” Mr Kim said. The summit in Vladivostok provides Pyongyang with an opportunity to seek support from a new quarter, Russia, and possible relief from the sanctions hurting its economy. Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un meet in the far-eastern Russian port of Vladivostok  Credit: AFP For the Kremlin, the summit is a chance to show it is a global diplomatic player, despite efforts by the United States and other Western states to isolate it. But with Moscow committed to upholding sanctions until the North dismantles its nuclear programme, analysts said the summit was unlikely to produce any tangible help for Pyongyang, beyond a show of camaraderie

Russian-North Korean relations since the Korean War SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin gives an intriguing twist to the global diplomatic push to resolve the nuclear standoff with North Korea, which appeared to hit a wall after a summit between Kim and President Donald Trump collapsed in February.


Trump immigration plan may increase visas for highly skilled workers: sources

Trump immigration plan may increase visas for highly skilled workers: sources Kushner is expected to present the comprehensive plan next week to President Donald Trump, who will decide whether to adopt it as his official position or send it back for changes, the sources said. The plan does not propose ways to address young people who came to the United States illegally as children who were protected by former President Barack Obama in the 2014 program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), or those people who have Temporary Protected Status, the sources said. Democrats, whose support the White House would need to advance any kind of immigration legislation through Congress, have insisted that the DACA recipients be protected.

U.S. measles cases hit highest level since eradication in 2000

U.S. measles cases hit highest level since eradication in 2000 The United States has confirmed 695 measles cases so far this year, the highest level since the country declared it had eliminated the virus in 2000, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday. The resurgence, which public health officials blamed in part on the spread of misinformation about the safety of vaccines, has been concentrated mainly in Washington state and New York with outbreaks that began late last year. "The longer these outbreaks continue, the greater the chance measles will again get a sustained foothold in the United States," the CDC warned in a statement.

High-resolution Pixel 3a leak reveals the design of Google’s next phone

High-resolution Pixel 3a leak reveals the design of Google’s next phone Much like the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Fold before it, Google's Pixel 3a appears to have leaked in full ahead of its unveiling next month. On Wednesday morning, VentureBeat's Evan Blass piled on with a leak of his own -- a high-resolution Pixel 3a render that gives us our clearest look yet at the midrange phone.As previous leaks revealed, the Pixel 3a is a blast from the past, with a design more reminiscent of the phones that came before the iPhone X than the phones that have made their debut over the last 12 to 18 months. No notches, no triple-lens camera, no in-display fingerprint sensor -- the Pixel 3a forgoes all of the modern design advances that the industry has adopted in favor of a classic design that basically mirrors that of the Pixel 3.The design alone won't entice any smartphone fanatics that want to owe the latest, greatest device (providing it isn't so flawed that it has to be delayed indefinitely). But with a simple design and midrange specs, Google will be able to offer a quality Android phone for a competitive price, as Samsung does with its Galaxy A series.https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/1120938099318693888Due to various leaks over the past several months (including one from Google itself), we think we know what will be contained within the Pixel 3a and the larger Pixel 3a XL as well. The Pixel 3a is expected to feature a 5.6-inch display at 2,200 x 1,080 and a Snapdragon 670 CPU, while the Pixel 3a XL will boast a 6-inch display at 2,160 x 1,080 and a Snapdragon 710 CPU. Both phones will have 4GB of RAM and the Pixel Visual Core software.Google will announce the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL on May 7th, which is the date Google I/O 2019 kicks off.


NRA sues Los Angeles over law requiring disclosure of ties to gun rights group

NRA sues Los Angeles over law requiring disclosure of ties to gun rights group Los Angeles was accused of trying to "silence NRA's voice, as well as the voices of all those who dare oppose the city's broad gun-control agenda," by cutting off revenue streams the group needs to advocate for the right to bear arms. At issue was an ordinance that took effect on April 1, requiring companies that want city contracts to disclose NRA contracts or sponsorships. The NRA said the law is unconstitutional because it violates its First Amendment right to free speech and association, and its 14th Amendment right to equal protection.

U.S. top court buttresses company power to arbitrate disputes

U.S. top court buttresses company power to arbitrate disputes In a decision that could further help companies limit damages in disputes with workers, the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled against a California man who was the victim of an online scam and sought to bring claims against his employer on behalf of a group of workers instead of just himself. In a 5-4 decision with the conservative justices in the majority and the liberals in dissent, the court overturned a lower court ruling that had allowed for the collective arbitration of the workers' claims against lighting retailer Lamps Plus, Inc. Lamps Plus warehouse employee Frank Varela filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of current and former employees accusing it of negligence, breach of contract and invasion of privacy after a hacker obtained his and other workers' personal information from the company.

U.S. federal judge to block Trump's new abortion rule: media, activists

U.S. federal judge to block Trump's new abortion rule: media, activists A federal judge in the U.S. state of Oregon will block a move by the Trump administration to cut off federal money to family planning clinics that offer abortion or refer women to abortion providers, activists and media reports said late on Tuesday. President Donald Trump's new Title X rule, set to take effect in May, would halt government funds for Planned Parenthood clinics that subsidize birth control for low-income women, and other clinics that provide abortions. Critics say the plan is aimed at fulfilling Trump's campaign pledge to defund Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides abortions and other health services for women.
