    Americans fear pilots purposely crashing an airliner as much as they are afraid of a hijacking, and over a quarter are more scared of flying than they were before a copilot crashed a jet in France last week, killing 150 people, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found. Andreas Lubitz, who prosecutors said had been previously treated for suicidal tendencies, is suspected of locking the captain out of the cockpit and deliberately plunging a Germanwings aircraft into a mountain in the French Alps, killing everyone on board.

    Jan 28, 2015 | Reuters

With inflation running below its 2 percent target, the Fed is unlikely to rush any move away from the near-zero interest rate policy it adopted more than six years ago, even as job growth has accelerated in recent months, analysts said.

  15. UPDATE 1-Pom Wonderful wins trademark ruling over rival pomegranate drinkRead the original story

    Dec 30, 2014 | Reuters

    A federal appeals court said on Tuesday the pomegranate juice maker Pom Wonderful LLC may try to stop a rival from selling a pomegranate-flavored energy drink labeled "pm," in a reversal of a lower court ruling in the trademark lawsuit. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Pasadena, California, said a lower court judge abused her discretion in January when she concluded that Pom did not deserve a preliminary injunction against Pur Beverages LLC. U.S. District Judge Margaret Morrow in Los Angeles had ruled that Pom was unlikely to show that shoppers would be confused by the rival products, which have different packaging, and was therefore unlikely to succeed on the merits.
