GPS device-maker Garmin reeling after Kansas worker killed
Updated: 02/25/2017 2:19 AM

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — GPS device-maker Garmin long has revered diversity in its workforce, even when the locale of its ever-sprawling operational headquarters — a largely white Kansas City suburb — didn't reflect it. It's the place 32-year-old Srinivas Kuchibhotla came to work a few years ago. By his wife's account Friday he willingly spent long hours on an aviation systems engineering team alongside Alok Madasani, a friend and colleague also 32 and from India. Kuchibhotla's trek led him to have a kinship with his boss, Lebanese native Didier Popadopoulos, who says he moved to America at Kuchibhotla's age and once held the same Garmin job.

Italy vows to be ready in time to host G-7 in Sicilian town
Updated: 02/24/2017 7:04 PM

TAORMINA, Sicily (AP) — Italy still needs to build two helicopter landing pads and repave miles of road, but a top government official promised Friday that everything will be ready for the May 26-27 G-7 summit being held in a stunning Sicilian town overlooking the sea. The annual summit will see U.S. President Donald Trump and the leaders of six other major industrial democracies confer on world issues in Taormina, a hilltop resort town with an ancient Greek theater.

US stocks eke out last-minute gain as utilities rise
Updated: 02/24/2017 4:53 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — A late push helped U.S. stocks finish higher Friday after indexes spent most of the day lower. There was far more selling than buying on Wall Street overall, but the Dow Jones industrial average managed to extend its winning streak to an 11th day. Energy companies and banks struggled. Investors continued to buy safer assets like government bonds, gold, and stocks that pay large dividends, such as utility and telephone companies. That's been a familiar pattern over the last few days.

Updated: 02/24/2017 4:34 PM

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece's era of austerity is over, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras claimed Friday, as he painted a positive picture of the reforms his government has agreed to take after the bailout program ends in 2018. Speaking in parliament, Tsipras described the deal reached Monday as an "exceptional success" and said it showed the country's creditors accepted Greece's insistence that it could no longer bear further budget austerity. "I am fully convinced we achieved an honorable compromise," Tsipras said, adding that all sides at the eurozone finance ministers' meeting in Brussels had agreed for the "first time after seven years ...

Updated: 02/24/2017 4:32 PM

CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey environmental regulators on Friday approved a hotly contested plan to run a natural gas pipeline through a federally protected forest preserve amid raucous protests that included drums, tambourines and choruses of "This Land Is Your Land." The 15-member New Jersey Pinelands Commission voted to approve a plan by South Jersey Gas to run the pipeline through the federally protected Pinelands preserve, where development is drastically restricted. The protesters' loud ruckus drowned out the members, even as they voted nine in favor and five against, with one abstention.

Updated: 02/24/2017 4:14 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — How much more can the "Trump Bump" lift the stock market?

Updated: 02/24/2017 3:52 PM

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Republican governors from seven states are calling for dramatic changes to Medicaid, which provides insurance to more than 70 million low-income Americans, as they nervously watch President Donald Trump and GOP congressional leaders move to repeal and replace the Obama-era health law. At the same time, they're telling Washington: Don't scrap the Affordable Care Act without a viable alternative. According to a draft of the proposal obtained by The Associated Press, the governors are urging Congress to adopt an alternative that would change Medicaid from an open-ended federal entitlement to a program designed by each state within a financial limit.

Monster Energy tries to give NASCAR buzz as title sponsor
Updated: 02/24/2017 3:28 PM

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Kurt Busch's car could have been parked at an auto show. Models in skimpy attire lingered around his Monster Energy car, posing for a steady stream of fans wanting snapshots and selfies. Even among the cluster of candy, beer and fast food companies adorned on cars lined on the grid at Daytona International Speedway, the oversized green "M'' claw on Busch's Ford caught the eye.
