Gruesome: USW says industry headed to oblivion

WASHINGTON, D.C.| Wages are stagnant. Income inequality is increasing. Steel imports are snuffing out jobs.More of the same is unacceptable, said Thomas Conway, International Vice President of the United Steelworkers union.“We are ratcheting down our industrial sectors into oblivion,” he said. “In the process, we hemorrhage good jobs just like is happening right now in the steel industry.”Conway called upon the federal government to stop foreign steel dumping and reject proposed trade deals while testifying at the Congressional Steel Caucus’s “State of Steel” hearing on Thursday. He said giving the president fast-track trade authority and signing a Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement would increase the trade deficit, cost good-paying jobs and make manufacturing wither away in America.Members of the caucus, which advocates for the domestic steel industry, were divided on the trade agreement. U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Pa., said he thought it was more likely that Powerball would make him a multimillionaire than a new trade agreement would benefit American industry. Richard Hudson, R-N.C. said they should “keep their powder dry” on the issue and try to work in provisions that would benefit domestic steelmakers.Steelmakers and the union both say the sector is suffering because of a record share of imports, including a projected 58.2 percent of all steel and tube products next year. They both point fingers at China...

Canada's TD Bank eyeing small acquisitions in US market

TORONTO, March 26 (Reuters) - Toronto-Dominion Bank , Canada's second-largest lender, said on Thursday it is open to doing small acquisitions in the U.S. market that would allow it to accelerate its branch rollout, especially in the southeastern part of the country. "We open about 25 to 30 new branches in the U.S. every year right through our footprint, so if there was a smallish tuck-in opportunity in the U.S. Southeast, we would certainly look at it seriously, because it would accelerate our store build-out by a few years," said Chief Executive Bharat Masrani at a roundtable with media.TD, already one of the 10 largest banks in the United States with over 1,300 branches along the eastern coast stretching from Maine to Florida, sees no pressing need to do any transformative acquisitions at this time, said Masrani."I've learned never to say never, but the great thing is we don't need to do a big deal," he said. "If something compelling comes up, we will certainly look at it, but we are not compelled to do it because there is a strategic gap in our franchise."Masrani, who headed TD's U.S. banking operations before taking over as CEO in November, said that TD remains an "organic growth type of institution," but would look for other opportunities in the U.S. market too."Given the type of balance sheet we have in the U.S., we are also highly liquid and are always looking at opportunities that would fill out our balance sheet because we are rich in deposits but not as rich in loan...  

Oil Markets Blow Yemen Crisis Out of Proportion

Hani Mohammed—AP Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, gather to protest against Saudi-led airstrikes in Sanaa, Yemen, on March 26, 2015. Saudi Arabia launched airstrikes in Yemen, causing oil prices to jump on fears over Middle East instability. The markets clearly reacted with concern over the rising violence in the Arabian Peninsula, which pits Saudi Arabia against Iran in a proxy war. Saudi Arabia is targeting Shia rebels seeking to topple the Saudi-backed Yemeni government. Reuters reports that Saudi bombs targeted an airport and airbase held by the Houthis, which seized Yemen’s capital of Sanaa last September. “We will do whatever it takes in order to protect the legitimate government of Yemen from falling,” Adel al-Jubeir, the Saudi ambassador to the United States, said in Washington DC. A Saudi official told Reuters that a “land offensive might be needed to restore order.” The conflict involves a convoluted set of regional rivalries. The U.S. is supporting Saudi Arabia with “logistical and intelligence support.” Iran has denounced Saudi Arabia’s attack. The United Arab Emirates has denounced Iranian influence in the region. Meanwhile the U.S. and Iran find themselves on the same side with their attacks on ISIS in Iraq, although their campaigns are not coordinated.

3 Principles of Video Games That Can Make You a Better Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurs face challenges every day, and they're constantly searching for "outside the box" solutions and ideas to overcome those challenges.Perhaps the most "outside the box" solutions reside within a Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation or Nintendo Wii.At least that's the thinking of leadership and personal development coach Jon Harrison, an organizational development practitioner, sought-after speaker, author of the book Mastering the Game and blogger at his leadership and business behavior website ClassicallyTrained.Harrison's thesis is that video games are problem-solving simulators that rely on hard work and persistence -- very similar to an entrepreneurial endeavor."Just beneath the digital surface of video games lie countless lessons and success principles for entrepreneurs that are often overlooked because critics dismiss video games based on the notion that such games are a waste of time, childish and a source of excessive violence," Harrison says.Related: 3 Things Video Games Can Teach You About Being a Better Business LeaderDespite those negative assertions against video games, a recent study found that we are in fact a nation of gamers.Sixty seven percent of households in America consist of families who play video games.Seventy five percent of all U.S. gamers are between the ages of 18 to 50.Forty percent of all gamers are women, surpassing the number of male gamers under the age of 18....
