American Airlines flight delayed in Vegas over false threat - Washington Post

By Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Authorities say an unspecified, false threat on an American Airlines flight forced the halting of a plane on a runway at the Las Vegas airport so passengers could be rescreened and the plane could be searched.

The airline said Flight 1704, bound for Charlotte, North Carolina, left a gate Thursday with 184 passengers and six crew members.

The plane hadn’t taken off when what turned out to be a “non-credible” threat was discovered and the plane was halted out of caution.

McCarran International Airport spokeswoman Christine Crews said passengers were bused back to the terminal.

Canine units swept the plane, including baggage and cargo areas. Authorities found nothing and cleared the scene.

The plane took off about four hours later.

The Federal Aviation Administration said no other flights were affected.

Qatar Airways promises to introduce Canberra route despite diplomatic crisis - The Canberra Times

Qatar Airways plans to push ahead with the proposed introduction of flights into Canberra, despite the diplomatic crisis engulfing its home country.

The suspension of diplomatic ties to Qatar by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain earlier this month raised doubts about the state-owned airline's planned route expansion during the next 12 months.

The cessation of ties included an airspace ban on Qatar-registered aircraft over Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and the UAE.

The blockade restricted access to airspace to the east, south and west of Qatar Airway's hub of Hamad International Airport in Doha.

Flights travelling toward Australia have been forced to take an indirect route over Oman or Iran in order to avoid the forbidden airspace, adding extra time...

Every two to three years those phones are replaced, meaning around five million new phones are purchased every year.

On top of that, more than 23 million unused mobile phones populate the desk drawers and cupboards of the nation.

Every eight hours, a rhinoceros is slaughtered in South Africa - The Sydney Morning Herald

Every eight hours, a rhinoceros is slaughtered. Three a day – that is the brutal average for rhino deaths in South Africa, and 2017 will be a crucial year for the remaining rhinos in the wild in the African nation.

Indeed, the rhino landscape in South Africa – which is home to more than 95 per cent of the remaining rhino population – is changing rapidly. I have been visiting the famous Kruger National Park pretty much every year for the past 55 years and, for the first time ever, I did not see one rhino – black or white – during my five-day visit.

State bank tax in mix, says WA Premier Mark McGowan - Perth Now

PREMIER Mark McGowan says he will examine South Australia’s planned tax on the big five banks in the lead-up to his Government’s first State Budget in September.

SA’s Labor Government expects the measure would raise that State about $370 million over four years, with Commonwealth, NAB, Westpac, ANZ and Macquarie targeted.

Mr McGowan said his Government was in search of every extra dollar it could find as it prepared for the September 7 Budget.

But he reiterated there would be “no new taxes on West Australians”.

“We are watching how it works in South Australia,” Mr McGowan said. “So, we will examine it.

“But, clearly, it would be great if the Commonwealth fixed our GST because it would avoid the necessity of us having to consider these things.”

Under the SA proposal, the banks would be taxed a quarterly levy of 0.015 per cent on bonds and deposits over$250,000.

Critical Levels To Breach: Zions Bancorporation (ZION), Palatin Technologies, Inc. (PTN) - AllStockNews

Zions Bancorporation (NASDAQ:ZION) trades at $41.93 having a market capitalization of $8.45 billion. ZION stock price climbed 48.9% over the past year, yielding a positive weighted alpha of 52.8 percent. Since an alpha above 1 hints at more gains, investors can predict some further rally scope.

Weighted Alpha is used to calculate how much a share has gone up or down over a certain period, normally a year. In general, more thrust is placed on most recent actions by assigning higher weights to it than those assigned to past movements. This assists to give a return figure that has a stronger focus on the most current period and is thus a better measure for short-term analysis. This technique is highly famous among technical analysts. If the stock is up it will have a positively weighted alpha. If the stock price is unchanged its weighted alpha will be smaller. A stock price loss will...

Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:NUAN) Shares Move 3.52% - Concord Register

Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:NUAN) shares saw the needle move 3.52% on the week. The stock closed the most recent session at $18.84 after seeing 11990482 shares trade hands.  This represents a change of -0.74% from the opening.
