Microsoft refuse de se plier à une demande de données

Agence France-Presse Washington Microsoft s’oppose à une décision de la justice américaine qui lui demande de remettre des données stockées sur un de ses serveurs basé à l’étranger. Cette manoeuvre du géant de l’informatique va permettre de voir jusqu’où peut s’étendre la loi américaine en la matière. Dans une demande en justice pour bloquer la décision à son encontre, Microsoft regrette que le gouvernement américain puisse se servir d’un mandat concernant n’importe quelle messagerie électronique basée aux États-Unis «pour obtenir les correspondances privées de n’importe quel abonné, peu importe où les données sont stockées dans le monde et ce sans…

Investors cheer for Brazil World Cup rout

By Rob Cox The author is a Reuters Breakingviews columnist. The opinions expressed are his own. At the opening of the Confederations Cup in Brasilia a year ago, President Dilma Rousseff was booed by thousands of soccer fans for all of Brazil to see. It’s easy to understand then why she isn’t planning to speak at Thursday’s opening ceremony of the World Cup. An embarrassing turn as host of Earth’s biggest sporting event – or crushing repeat of the 1950 Maracanaço – may be the greatest obstacle to her clinching a second term. With each dip in Rousseff’s poll numbers,…

‘Walmart moms’ walk off the job in protest at pay and conditions

A Walmart protest in LA in November. Photograph: Lucy Nicholson/Reuters/Corbis Working mothers at Walmart staged a series of strikes on Wednesday in protest over wages and conditions at the world’s largest retailer, as a new report claims the company’s top executives received $104m in taxpayer subsidies over a six-year period. The majority of mothers working at Walmart, which drew a $16bn profit last year, earn less than $25,000 a year. This week, a study by thinktank Demos detailed how 1.3 million women working in retail live on or near the poverty line. It said that if the major retailers in the…

Russian tycoon to fight $4.5 billion divorce for “10 more years”

(Reuters) – A Russian tycoon whose estranged wife won a $4.5 billion divorce ruling this week, one of the costliest in history, will appeal against the judgment and the case will take another decade at least, his lawyer said on Wednesday. Dmitry Rybolovlev, who made much of his fortune with the 2010 sale of his stake in fertilizer company Uralkali, spent six years in legal wrangling with wife Elena but the case is long from over, according to lawyer Tetiana Bersheda. She said the judgment in Geneva was subject to two appeals, first to the court of justice and then…

RUSSIA, CHINA SIGN DEAL TO BYPASS U.S. DOLLAR

In a symbolic blow to U.S. global financial hegemony, Russia and China took a small step toward undercutting the domination of the U.S. dollar as the international reserve currency on Tuesday when Russia’s second biggest financial institution, VTB, signed a deal with the Bank of China to bypass the dollar and pay each other in domestic currencies.

Gazprom head soothes Europe over gas supply via Ukraine

(Reuters) – Russia’s Gazprom assured European customers it would continue to supply their gas, after its threat to halts supplies to transit nation Ukraine next month over non-payment. Any shortfall would be the fault of Ukraine, chief executive Alexei Miller told Russian television. Moscow blamed theft by Ukraine for a disruption to exports in a previous dispute. Russia has warned that it will not supply Ukraine with gas in June unless Kiev pays in advance $1.66 billion by June 2, raising fears that gas piped to Europe through Ukraine could be affected. “Gazprom will simply supply Ukraine as much as…

IMF likely to cut Russia outlook, eyes risks to central, eastern, south-eastern Europe

(Reuters) – The International Monetary Fund said on Tuesday that central, eastern and south-eastern Europe faced “an unusual constellation of risks” as the fund prepared to cut its forecasts for Russian growth for the second time in less than a month. In a new report, the IMF said the region was expected to benefit as the euro zone recovers from its debt crisis, but the tension over Ukraine and market concern as the U.S. reduces monetary stimulus were creating high uncertainty. “An unusual constellation of risks clouds the outlook,” the Fund said in its spring Regional Economic Issues report. “Geopolitical tensions surrounding Russia and Ukraine, more challenging…

Russia PM says certain can minimize sanctions impact

(Reuters) – Russia, under threat of further sanctions over theUkraine crisis, said on Tuesday it could minimize their impact and would support industries dependent on supplies from abroad.
