HPE, created almost a year ago out of the breakup of Hewlett-Packard Co., began laying off staffers this week, according to social media buzz and the Layoff.com. HPE spokeswoman Meghan Fintland confirmed to GeekWire that “previously announced restructuring changes took place.” “Workforce changes that are part of a company-wide strategy to give HPE the needed workforce to be a more nimble customer and partner-centric company,” Fintland told GeekWire.

That overstuffed wallet of yours can’t be comfortable to sit on. It’s probably even too clunky to lug around in a purse, too. And with every new bank slip that bulges from the seams, your personal information is getting less and less safe. With just your name and Social Security number, identity thieves can open new credit accounts and make costly purchases in your name. If they can get their hands on (and doctor) a government-issued photo ID of yours, they can do even more damage, such as opening new bank accounts. These days, con artists are even profiting from tax-return fraud and health-care fraud, all with stolen IDs. We talked with consumer-protection advocates to identify the eight things
Mirror, mirror on the wall, which asset is most mispriced of all? According to a Goldman Sachs alum who predicted the financial crisis in 2008, it’s gold. The precious metal should be a lot more expensive when the likelihood of a global financial collapse and a move toward negative interest rates is accounted for, says Global Macro Investor founder Raoul Pal, who now sees a U.S. recession within 12 months. Recent losses for gold may have dented investor confidence. Gold GCZ6, +0.13% is up 18% this year, but the first full week of October marked its worst seven-day performance in over three years; it also posted a three-month loss of nearly 6% on a continuous basis.

T-Mobile, the country's No. 3 wireless carrier, will pay $48 million for not clearly telling customers how "unlimited" data plans weren't really, well, unlimited.

Bungling a job interview is a truly terrible experience. It's possible that you inadvertently insulted the interviewer or failed to stick the landing with a particularly dumb question. Of course, if you recognize a few items on this list, that doesn't necessarily always mean you blew the job interview.

Traders have lost faith in Walgreens' giant deal to buy Rite Aid.

Retirees have special concerns when evaluating state tax policies. For instance, the mortgage might be paid off, but how bad are the property taxes—and how generous are the property-tax breaks for seniors? Are Social Security benefits taxed? What about other forms of retirement income—including IRAs and pensions? Does the state impose its own estate tax that might subtract from your legacy? The answers might just determine which side of the state border you’ll settle on in retirement. These 10 states impose the highest taxes on retirees, according to Kiplinger’s exclusive 2016 analysis of state taxes. Three of them treat Social Security benefits just like Uncle Sam does—taxing as much as 85%

Two top lawmakers on Thursday demanded information from a drug company that has raised prices on a leukemia drug, calling increases of tens of thousands of dollars a sign the company puts profits before patients. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, wrote ARIAD Pharmaceuticals and asked about price hikes for Iclusig, which is used to treat chronic myeloid leukemia in some people.

Non-resident investors in Irish real estate funds will have to pay a 20 percent withholding tax from next year on certain deals, the finance ministry said on Thursday, in a further clampdown on structures used to minimise tax bills. Ireland last month proposed to amend tax laws for "Section 110" special purpose vehicles and widened the net on Thursday to include all funds where 25 percent of their value is made up of Irish real estate assets. Such a change targets two other popular types of funds used by foreign investors to buy up swathes of Irish property in recent years: Irish Collective Asset-management Vehicles (ICAVs) and Qualifying Investor Alternative Investment Funds (QIAIFs).

Hyundai is recalling nearly 63,000 midsize cars in the U.S. because the panoramic glass sunroofs can come loose and fly into traffic. The recall covers certain Sonata midsize cars from the 2015 and 2016 model years, including gas-electric hybrids. The South Korean automaker says in government documents that a wind deflector anchor plate in front of the sunroof wasn't bonded properly to the car. A loose deflector can detach and interfere with the roof as it closes. If the owner tries to force the roof closed, it can fly off. The company says it has no reports of accidents or injuries due to the problem. But Hyundai had several reports of detached sunroofs in the U.S. Dealers will repair the wind

By John Miller ZURICH (Reuters) - Roche said on Thursday strong sales of new medicines like cancer immunotherapy drug Tecentriq would help to sustain the company's growth as patents on older drugs start to expire. Chief Executive Severin Schwan is betting he can stay ahead of the sales erosion with new medicines that include five launched in 2016 alone. "That is an unprecedented number of launches of new medicines in a short period of time," Schwan said on a conference call after Roche reported third-quarter sales figures.
