    Delta Air Lines Wants the Boeing "797" ASAP: Here's Why

    Last year, Boeing (NYSE: BA) strained its relationship with U.S. airline giant Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) by attempting to have big tariffs imposed on Delta's purchase of CSeries jets from Bombardier. Many pundits saw Boeing's trade complaint as a risky move that could alienate a key customer -- especially after Delta ordered the Airbus (NASDAQOTH: EADSY) A321neo last December instead of Boeing's 737 MAX 10. Delta isn't going to make bad business decisions just to punish Boeing.

    How effective was the Russian social media campaign? Here's a clue

    One of the overarching questions about Russia’s online campaign to destabilize the US election is just how effective those social media efforts really were. Well, according to special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment (pdf) of 13 Russian citizens and three entities, Russian trolls were persuasive enough to get at least one US citizen to stand up and wish their boss a very special happy birthday. The indictment says they used a social media account to arrange “for a real US person to stand in front of the White House…under false pretenses to hold a sign that read ‘Happy 55th Birthday Dear Boss.'” They reportedly told the American that it was for someone who “is a leader here and our boss…our

    Gilead wins reversal of $2.54 billion hepatitis C drug patent verdict

    A federal judge in Delaware has overturned a jury's verdict requiring Gilead Sciences Inc to pay a record $2.54 billion because its hepatitis C drugs Sovaldi and Harvoni infringed a patent held by rival Merck & Co Inc. The verdict had been the largest ever in a U.S. patent case but U.S. District Judge Leonard Stark in Wilmington, Delaware, on Friday ruled Merck's patent was invalid. Gilead in a statement on Saturday said it always believed the patent was invalid and was pleased the judge confirmed that opinion. The December 2016 verdict followed a trial in which jurors found that Merck's patent on hepatitis C treatments, which it acquired in 2014 when it bought Idenix Pharmaceuticals, was valid.

    Feb. 16, 2018 at 4:26 PM The investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election took a significant step forward Friday, with the indictment of 13 Russian nationals and and three Russian organizations along with the announcement of a guilty plea from a California man for identity fraud. The indictment and guilty plea are important because they are the first charges related to Russian attempts to sabotage the election.
