    California intensified its battle against fossil fuels by seeking independent reviews of all pending hydraulic fracturing permits and halting approvals of a key production technique in an area that has pumped crude for more than a century. Governor Gavin Newsom ordered regulators to assess the safety of high-pressure steamflooding, a production process that has been linked to recent oil leaks in Kern County, the state's Department of Conservation said in a statement Tuesday. The state is also requesting third-party scientific reviews of any pending applications for fracking, as well as looking for ways to toughen regulations to protect residents near oil and natural gas well sites.

    Soaring salaries at Facebook, Netflix and Silicon Valley giants show where 'the rest' can win

    At Netflix Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX), the number is $202,335. Here in Birmingham, thousands of miles away, those sky-high numbers hold potential for the Magic City, where the median household income is just $53,107. While it would be great – and an undoubtedly big win – for Birmingham to reel in major operations for Facebook or Netflix, the sky-high salaries from the ground in Silicon Valley suggests the real gold for Birmingham is in the young startups and the smaller companies that are trying to compete with those global giants If those companies are in Silicon Valley, they're competing for talent with at least nine companies – including Facebook, Netflix and Alphabet – where the median salaries are $200,000 or more.

    China Scrutinizes U.S. Bid to Control Chinese Chipmaker

    A U.S. chipmaker's attempt to acquire a peer with a valuable Chinese affiliate has spurred concern in Beijing, as tensions between the world's two biggest economies threaten to disrupt the global tech supply chain. China's antitrust regulator is closely monitoring Diodes Inc.'s proposed $428 million takeover of Taiwan's Lite-On Semiconductor Corp., responding to complaints a deal will deliver the Taiwanese company's Shanghai-based affiliate On-Bright Electronics Inc. into American hands, according to a person familiar with the matter. The unusual attention accorded On-Bright -- a Chinese maker of chipsets for power management that's listed in Taipei and has a market value of NT$9.88 billion ($324 million) -- reflects growing scrutiny of American M&A efforts in China.

    EU Poised to Send Warning to China on 5G

    The European Union is poised to say potential 5G suppliers will be evaluated based on their home country's laws, a stance that could exclude Chinese businesses from some lucrative contracts for the advanced telecommunications networks. Factors, such as the legal and policy framework to which suppliers may be subject to in third countries, should be considered,” according to a draft of a joint statement obtained by Bloomberg and planned for release next month. The document is due to be approved on an informal basis this week by government envoys with formal sign off by ministers due in December, and the wording is subject to changes.
