LBN-BUSINESS INSIDER: ***China struck $225 billion in deals to acquire companies abroad last year, a record-breaking number that signaled to the world that Chinese business leaders were hot to haggle. Now, China — with a worried eye on the money leaving its borders — is telling some of its companies to cool it down. On Saturday, in the strongest public signal yet that Beijing is changing course, China’s commerce minister castigated what he called “blind and irrational investment.” At a news briefing during the annual meeting of China’s congress, the minister, Zhong Shan, said officials planned to intensify supervision of what he called a small number of companies.

LBN-COMMENTARY by Paul Krugman: The U.S. economy added 10.3 million jobs during President Obama’s second term, or 214,000 a month. This brought the official unemployment rate below 5 percent, and a number of indicators suggested that by late last year we were fairly close to full employment. But Donald Trump insisted that the good news on jobs was “phony,” that America was actually suffering from mass unemployment. Then came the first employment report of the Trump administration, which at 235,000 jobs added looked very much like a continuation of the previous trend. And the administration claimed credit: Job numbers, Mr. Trump’s press secretary declared, “may have been phony in the past, but it’s very real now.” Reporters laughed — and should be ashamed of themselves for doing so. For it really wasn’t a joke. America is now governed by a president and party that fundamentally don’t accept the idea that there are objective facts. Instead, they want everyone to accept that reality is whatever they say it is.

LBN-COMMENTARY by Michael Levine (Media expert and author – www.MichaelLevineMedia.com) : Exceptionally attractive women are at a disadvantage when seeking a job associated with particularly masculine qualities. For example, if a more attractive woman and a less attractive woman compete for a job as a tow truck driver or operating a switchboard, the more attractive woman rarely wins the job. Researchers suggest that a highly attractive woman is perceived as less capable of meeting the job’s requirement for masculine qualities than an unattractive woman.
