Updated: 02/17/2018 2:43 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — The Weinstein Co. thought it had found a path to survival. A group of investors led by a respected businesswoman offered to acquire the company, rebrand it and install a female-led board of directors. It was an eye-catching idea in a country where men dominate corporate boards in almost every industry.

Updated: 02/17/2018 11:32 AM

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Ten years ago, Atlantic City's Tropicana casino was on the verge of death, having been stripped of its casino license after its then-owners laid off vast swaths of the workforce, leading to filthy rooms, insect infestations, hourlong waits for slot machine payouts and food and drink orders that often never arrived. Now, after years of reinvesting in and renovating the casino floor, hotel rooms and eateries, the Tropicana has become the No. 2 casino in the city in terms of gambling revenue — a position it will need to fight to retain as two additional casinos open on the Boardwalk this summer.

Updated: 02/17/2018 10:17 AM

NEW YORK (AP) — This month's sell-off for stocks marked the first big test of investors' mettle in years. And many ended up doing exactly what the experts were recommending: hold steady. Even as stock markets tumbled around the world, putting a halt to an unusually calm and strong ride upward, many investors resisted the urge to sell in a panic and lock in the losses. Others plugged even more cash into their trading accounts after seeing prices for S&P 500 index funds drop by 10 percent within a couple weeks.

Updated: 02/17/2018 6:36 AM

MUNICH (AP) — British Prime Minister Theresa May urged her country's European Union partners on Saturday not to let "rigid institutional restrictions" get in the way of a wide-ranging post-Brexit security alliance, warning that there would be "damaging real-world consequences" if none can be agreed.

Friday's election-interference indictment brought by Robert Mueller, the U.S. special counsel, underscores how thoroughly social-media companies like Facebook and Twitter were played by Russian propagandists.

Updated: 02/16/2018 7:56 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook is forging ahead with its messaging app for kids, despite child experts who have pressed the company to shut it down and others who question Facebook's financial support of some advisers who approved of the app. Messenger Kids lets kids under 13 chat with friends and family.
