TORONTO — The Toronto stock market drifted slightly lower at the end of a positive week.The S&P/TSX composite index slipped 12.74 points to 14,689.55.The Canadian dollar erased early gains to move up 0.1 of a cent to 91.9 cents US while the latest inflation data showed rising price pressures.Statistics Canada reported that the consumer price index for April rose at an annualized rate of 2%, in line with expectations and up from 1.5% the previous month.On a monthly basis, the CPI was up 0.3%, lower than the 0.4% reading that had been forecast.U.S. indexes were higher heading into the Memorial Day long weekend with the Dow Jones industrials ahead 36.2 points to 16,579.28, the Nasdaq was 2.79 points higher to 4,157.13 and the S&P 500 index climbed 2.16 points to 1,894.65.Traders looked ahead to the release of new-home sales data for April. Economists expect that sales rebounded for the month, with the annual rate rising to 429,000 from 384,000 in March. But that is still below levels of 446,000 a year ago.The TSX registered a solid gain Thursday in the wake of quarterly earnings results from Royal Bank and TD Bank that blew past analyst expectations. The rest of the big banks report next week.The earnings helped push the TSX financial sector up 1.25% this week. The other big gainer has been the base metals group, up 1.5% for the week, in part due to data showing a strengthening Chinese manufacturing sector.The energy sector was little changed while July crude in New York gained 32 cents to US$104.06 a barrel.The gold sector led decliners, down 0.25% as June bullion faded $1.80 to US$1,293.20 an ounce.July copper rose two cents to US$3.16 a pound and the base metals sector was off 0.1%.In corporate news, Republic Airways’ CEO Bryan Bedford says the carrier has no plans to cancel its large order of the new Bombardier CSeries jet.Questions have been raised about the airline’s intentions for the aircraft after it announced a refocus of its regional service, which includes the phasing out of 50- and 100-seat planes to focus on Bombardier’s Q400 turbo and Embraer’s 170/175. But its shares fell six cents to $3.77 on reports that Moscow has raised questions about whether a deal with the transport giant to build Q400 turboprop aircraft in Russia will go through.Elsewhere on the economic front, a closely watched survey shows that German business confidence has dipped, with companies less optimistic about both their current situation and the outlook for the next six months. The Ifo institute said Friday that its confidence index, a key indicator for Europe’s biggest economy, slipped to 110.4 points this month from 111.2 in April.Standard & Poor’s rating agency has upgraded Spain’s sovereign credit grade a notch to BBB, the third agency to do so in recent months and a further sign the country is turning the corner after five years of economic turmoil. The agency cited improved economic prospects and praising the conservative government’s structural and labour reforms since 2010.

Peltz has disclosed stakes worth $1.23 billion in Mondelez and $951.8 million in PepsiCo.Some industry analysts believe a merger is possible.Consumer Edge Research CEO Bill Pecoriello has noted that the global snack business is much more attractive to PepsiCo than the soda business, which has been declining for years in developed markets such as the U.S.In fact, Consumer Edge issued a report in March detailing how a merged PepsiCo and Mondelez would work in markets around the world. The report found that the combined company would benefit because there are many regions where one of the companies has a big presence and the other doesn’t.Little is known publicly about the relationship between PepsiCo’s glamorous CEO, Indra Nooyi, and Irene Rosenfeld, the top executive at Mondelez, who tends to stay out of the spotlight. But the paths they took to the top of their respective companies intersected briefly when Rosenfeld left Kraft to join PepsiCo as head of its Frito-Lay division in 2004.At the time, Nooyi was serving as PepsiCo’s chief financial officer and was regarded as a strong contender for the top spot. In 2006, Rosenfeld ended up leaving to return to Kraft as CEO; Nooyi was promoted to CEO at PepsiCo less than two months later.Without providing details, a spokesman said Nooyi keeps in touch with Rosenfeld, with whom she has a warm relationship.As the chief executives of two of the country’s biggest snack food makers, they’ve dealt with many of same pressures, including the push to make their products healthier and the spotlight that comes with being among the ranks of women CEOs in the Fortune 500.Nooyi is a high-profile figure whose name has been bandied about for various high-profile positions including the head of the World Bank. The 57-year-old appears at home in front of the cameras, whether she’s making appearances on CNBC’s “Mad Money” with Jim Cramer or talking about her days in a rock band while growing up in India.She has said that her greatest extravagance is clothes, given the fact that she can’t be seen in public wearing the same outfit too many times.Rosenfeld, meanwhile, is known among reporters for closely sticking to sound bites in interviews. She doesn’t seem as comfortable around the press, but people who’ve known her say that she is warmer in private.And although impeccably dressed, the Chinese publication Modern Weekly once noted that Rosenfeld was wearing a brooch she had been spotted wearing in several other published photos.“You can clearly see where she chooses to devote her time,” the publication wrote in apparent praise.Even though both women were influenced by music and sports in their youths, the specifics of their experiences diverge. Nooyi played in a rock band and an all-girls cricket team. Rosenfeld still loves playing the piano, opting for John Denver songs but preferring Bach and Vivaldi when she’s listening. In high school, she was the point guard on the basketball team.In an interview with the Financial Times last summer, she explained why she liked the position.“You call the shots, you call the plays,” she said. “I kind of went in and out of people’s legs, and I still do that, to a large extent.”Both are also familiar with the heat that comes when failing to satisfy investors. In late 2011, Nooyi was facing intense criticism because Pepsi had been losing market share to Coca-Cola over the years.The New York Post — which is known for cartoonish Photoshop creations of top executives — published an image of Nooyi trying to balance on a soda bottle as if it were a surfboard. The nose of the bottle was pointed downward, an apparent illustration of the company’s falling stock price at the time.A few months later, Nooyi announced the “reset” for PepsiCo that would include a major cost-cutting program and increased investment in marketing for its flagship brands.While at Kraft, Rosenfeld’s takeover of British confectioner Cadbury to expand overseas was driven in great part by Peltz. The move set the stage for the split of the company last year, with Rosenfeld and Mondelez walking off with global snack brands such as Oreo and Trident.Kraft held onto slower-growing North American grocery brands such as Jell-O and Miracle Whip.It’s not clear whether Rosenfeld would stay in her position even if an acquisition were to happen. But under her contract, she’s guaranteed three times her base salary plus her target annual incentive pay if she loses her position within two years as a result of a “change in control” of the company._____Follow Candice Choi at www.twitter.com/candicechoi by Candice Choi, The Associated Press Posted Jul 17, 2013 4:00 pm MDT
According to a press release, Dr. Goosby will work towards boosting the profile of the fight against TB and promoting the adoption, financing and implementation of the UN World Health Organization’s (WHO) global End TB Strategy after 2015. In addition, he will push for the achievement of the Strategy’s “ambitious international targets” for tuberculosis prevention, care and control while also pursuing the TB 2015 targets described in the Millennium Development Goals.“Dr. Goosby will address these issues by raising the profile of TB in the global, regional and national political and development agendas and by calling for countries with high burden of tuberculosis, as well as donor countries, civil society and the private sector, to promote key actions that contribute to end the tuberculosis epidemic, including resource mobilization for research and development,” the Secretary-General’s spokesperson said. UN data show that in 2013 an estimated 9 million people developed TB and 1.5 million men, women and children died from the disease which largely affects the poorest and most marginalized communities around the world. Moreover, the problem of antimicrobial resistance, or drug resistance, poses a great threat to tuberculosis control and remains a major concern for global health security. As a result, the End TB Strategy aims to end the global TB epidemic, with targets to reduce TB deaths by 95 per cent and to cut new cases by 90 per cent between 2015 and 2035. Through his new appointment, Dr. Goosby will work closely with the WHO in providing support in carrying out what the Spokesperson’s office has described as a “crucial mission for global health.”
England Captain Harry Kane has revealed he was making final preparations for his club’s fixture against Southampton when he learned of the award.The Tottenham striker who had an incredible year for both club and country said he received messages from his fiancee Kate urging him to get in touch just prior to Tottenham’s Premier League game against Southampton on December 5.Harry Kane was in good form at the world cup and won the World Cup Golden Boot with six goals in the team’s run to the semi-finals.,Kane who has now scored a total of 156 goals in all competitions for Tottenham told Spurs TV via Belfasttelegraph:Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“We got a letter to the house, Kate opened the letter…it was before the Southampton game.“Normally we’d talk a little but she would never call me just before the match. I had a missed call and she texted me ‘could you answer?’.“I thought something was wrong! But Kate was excited and told me that we’d had a letter from the Queen saying we’d get an MBE.“I’m proud for her as well and the whole family. It’s not just for me. We’re part of a journey together. It shows that the hard work has paid off.”
Skyview High School was placed under lockdown for a half-hour Friday when a man being sought by police wandered onto campus.A Clark County Sheriff’s spokesman said the man was quickly brought into custody. The man was wanted in connection with multiple outstanding warrants. No further information on the man was released.The school’s campus was locked down from 11:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.“They got him right away,” Sgt. Scott Schanaker said of the incident. “It all worked out.”
US President-elect Donald Trump. Reuters file photoPresident-elect Donald Trump accepts the US intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia engaged in cyber attacks aimed at disrupting the presidential election and may take actions in response, his incoming chief of staff said on Sunday.Reince Priebus, the former Republican National Committee chairman, said Trump understands that Moscow was behind the intrusions into the Democratic Party organizations. “He accepts the fact that this particular case was entities in Russia so that’s not the issue,” Priebus said on “Fox News Sunday.”Priebus’ comments marked a major shift. Trump has repeatedly dismissed claims that the Russians were trying to help him, arguing that those charges are the product of his political opponents trying to undermine his victory.It was the first acknowledgement from a senior member of the president-elect’s team that Trump has accepted that Moscow was involved in the hacking and subsequent disclosure of Democratic emails during the 2016 presidential election.In a statement on Friday after receiving his intelligence briefing, Trump did not refer specifically to Russia’s role in the presidential campaign.Priebus said Trump plans to order the intelligence community to make recommendations as to what should be done. Depending on those recommendations, “actions may be taken,” he said.He did not elaborate.
House Speaker Paul Ryan speaking after the House passed its version of the tax overhaul in the Rayburn Room of the US Capitol in Washington, DC. AFP file photoThe US Senate was poised to approve a sweeping tax overhaul Tuesday, putting President Donald Trump on the brink of his first major legislative victory nearly a year after he took office.The deepest revamp of the tax code in three decades provides sweeping tax breaks to US corporations, and families at all incomes levels will see their income tax drop starting next year, with the largest benefits going to the wealthy.But even if the Senate approves the $1.5 trillion package, Trump, who has pushed hard to get it across the finish line, will be forced to delay celebrations until Wednesday morning.Hours earlier, the bill cleared the House of Representatives, and its Republican leaders thought their work was done.But a last-minute snag will force the House to vote on the package once more on Wednesday, after a Senate parliamentarian stripped out three provisions found to be in violation of the chamber’s guidelines on the kinds of legislation that can pass the Senate with just a simple majority.The Senate vote was headed to a showdown. But Republicans, who hold a 52-48 majority, appeared to have enough support after holdouts against the measure, including Senator Bob Corker and Senator Marco Rubio, backed off their threats to defect.With Senator John McCain, who has brain cancer, announcing he will not return to Washington until January, the Republican cushion sits at just one, and no Republicans are publicly opposed.In the House, 12 Republicans joined all Democrats in opposition as the bill passed 227 to 203, drawing loud cheers and applause from Republicans in the chamber.“Today we are giving the people of this country their money back,” House Speaker Paul Ryan told his colleagues.Trump tweeted his congratulations to Ryan and all other “great House Republicans who voted in favor of cutting your taxes!”The procedural snafu only became apparent afterward.‘Mad dash’Senate Democrats said they demanded that three provisions in the bill, including one allowing the use of savings accounts for home-schooling expenses, be stripped out because they violate the Senate’s so-called Byrd Rule.Democrats seized on the hiccup as proof that Republicans were rushing to jam the tax cuts through Congress without allowing lawmakers, the public and financial experts to do a deeper dive on the impacts of the bill.“In the mad dash to provide tax breaks for their billionaire campaign contributors, our Republican colleagues forgot to comply with the rules of the Senate,” senators Bernie Sanders and Ron Wyden said in a statement.Republican leaders unveiled their final version of the bill only late last week, and Trump has demanded it be on his desk by Christmas.Should the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act make it into law it would be the Republicans’ first major legislative victory in the 11 months since Trump’s inauguration.The Republican plan is projected to add nearly $1.5 trillion to the national debt over the coming decade, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.But that figure drops to about $1 trillion when economic growth is accounted for.Ryan stated that a median-income family of four earning $73,000 annually would save $2,059 in taxes next year.‘Moral obscenity’The Democratic opposition has denounced the measure as mostly benefiting companies and the wealthiest Americans-including Trump himself-and warns it risks blowing a hole in the national debt, which has surged past $20 trillion.White House press secretary Sarah Sanders asserted that the new bill “could cost the president a lot of money,” but she conceded that “on the business side he could benefit.”While Republicans failed earlier this year to repeal and replace Obamacare, the tax plan takes a key step in that regard, by scrapping the individual mandate that requires nearly all Americans to have health insurance or pay a fine.Under the legislation, the federal corporate tax rate would fall from 35 percent to 21 percent, and the maximum individual income tax rate, for the nation’s wealthiest, would drop from 39.6 percent to 37 percent.The bill also doubles the standard deduction for families, and doubles the child tax credit.But it also provides clear advantages for the wealthy, including a doubling of the amount of money that can be exempted from inheritance tax.Top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi called the bill a “moral obscenity,” and “brazen theft from the American middle class.”
A racial epithet allegedly used against several Black players during a Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) semifinal game has not been thoroughly investigated by team or league officials, or resulted in disciplinary action.Parents of two Black St. John’s College High School players allege that a first-team all-conference White midfielder from Paul VI Catholic High School may have used the N-word after a hard shove out of bounds that wasn’t penalized during the latter stages of an intense playoff game on May 4. St. John’s won the game 7-6 and later beat Gonzaga to win the WCAC championship. Though the season and school year ended nearly a month ago, the incident remains under an unclear form of investigation by the conference, preventing the players involved from being publicly identified. One of the St. John’s players at whom the slurs were supposedly directed told the AFRO he was initially stunned by the insult. He said he addressed the game officials and his coach immediately, but that the officials didn’t assess a penalty or admonish the alleged offender. Despite the efforts of various diversity initiatives, Black lacrosse players remain highly sought after but often not respected on the field. According to most national high school federation officiating protocols, players can be immediately ejected for using racial, sexual preference, or religious slurs. That decision rests in the hands of game officials; team- or conference-sanctioned suspensions can also be levied after internal investigations.“St. John’s College considers any hateful or harassing speech, including potentially racist statements on the athletic field, to be fundamentally at odds with the mission of the school and the WCAC,” said St John’s President Jeff Mancabelli in an e-mail to the AFRO.The incident will be a challenge for the WCAC to appropriately resolve. Because Paul VI saw their conference season end with the loss to St. John’s, there are limited punitive options available to the athletic conference. Paul VI went on to participate in the Virginia state lacrosse championships with the alleged offender on their roster, but there is nothing to address a quandary such as this in the league’s code of conduct. It could be a perfect time for a proper investigation to create a precedent. There is also the possibility of a teachable moment for both players and officials. When a player uses racial slurs during a game without immediate intervention by officials, and is then allowed to play in the state tournament with no ramifications, they may feel a sense of empowerment to continue this type of behavior during their college career.With the alleged offender’s high school athletic career at an end, Paul VI officials may feel little need to investigate and, if necessary, punish the youth’s actions. However, the parents of the students at whom the slur was directed said they are nonetheless asking for a formal apology.
Stay on target As Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame passes Titanic to become the No. 2 movie ever worldwide, breaking opening weekend box office records, and earning almost $2.2 billion worldwide through its second weekend in theaters, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has proven to be biggest movie franchise ever.There’s just something about those superheroes that wins overs moviegoers’ minds, hearts — and wallets. And you can bet there will be more of these blockbusters from Marvel/Disney. But the MCU isn’t the only movie franchise that has reaped the rewards at the box office in the last 20 years.Reddit user /u/rebellious_scum captured North American box office sales for some of the biggest movie franchises over the last 20 years, starting from May 1999 (release of Star Wars: Episode 1) to April 2019, as reported by movie data website The Numbers, in a cool, mesmerizing animation.The animation also visualized daily ticket earnings for X-Men, The Fast and Furious, The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter movies, which all started to rise up in the early 2000s.But according to the Visual Capitalist, the clear takeaway from the animation is “Marvel’s exponential earnings growth since it debuted with Iron Man in 2008.”As of April 4, the MCU franchise had earned (inflation-adjusted) revenue of $7.63 billion, which is almost double that of runner-up Star Wars. And that doesn’t yet take into account account data from the record-shattering April 26 release of Avengers: Endgame.Using the animation’s numbers, the Visual Capitalist further breaks down the average revenue per movie, with Star Wars and Middle-earth topping the list . Meanwhile, Marvel lands in third place, followed by Pirates of the Caribbean, the Wizarding World, and the DC Extended Universe (DCEU).Marvel’s dominance at the box office can be boiled down to Disney/Marvel’s ability to produce movies at breakneck speed, according to Visual Capitalist. For example, in 12 years, Marvel Studios has produced 22 movies including Avengers: Endgame, while the James Bond franchise has produced 24 movies since its inception 57 years ago in 1962.More on Geek.com:Bernie Sanders to Disney: Use ‘Avengers’ Profits to Pay Workers MoreRami Malek Is Your Next ‘James Bond’ VillainDon’t Expect New Star Wars Movies After ‘Episode IX’ Bernie Sanders to Disney: Use ‘Avengers’ Profits to Pay Workers More’Avengers: Endgame’ Smashes Box Office Records

The DR Systems booth is #6229, in the South Building, Hall A. eMix, which stands for Electronic Medical Information Exchange, enables secure sharing of images and reports between disparate institutions and physicians via the Internet. It also can help facilitate associating patient images to electronic medical records (EMRs) and patients’ personal healthcare records (PHRs). This interoperable, vendor-neutral technology eliminates the need for the provider facility to burn CDs, print films, or fax reports. It should also help facilitate the trend toward universal access to medical imaging, for a complete EMR. “eMix is a medical IT breakthrough that solves several problems faced by imaging centers and hospitals,” said DR Systems chairman of the board and radiologist Murray Reicher, M.D. “With eMix, institutions can avoid the cost and hassle of making CDs for patients and importing CDs from other facilities that don’t have the same PACS. They can digitally supply both images and reports to patients and doctors with a few simple mouse clicks, and even use the system to create anew, cost-free revenue stream.” eMix has numerous security features. It puts the patient at the center of the authorization process, and creates an audit trail. Security is further enhanced by the fact that no patient data resides on the eMix Web servers. Together, these features enable institutions to comply with requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). According to DR Systems, with eMix, institutions can avoid labor, material, and service costs by eliminating the following expenses: handling imaging data requests, burning CDs, printing film, faxing reports, mailing imaging information, and managing chain-of-custody. Those same institutions can use eMix to generate revenue – for example, by charging $5 per eMix access. Because all data is electronic and transferred automatically, there is zero supply cost. Using eMix involves the following: The sender 1) selects an exam from the worklist, 2) uploads the exam components to the eMix Web server, and 3) selects one or more recipients. The receiver 1) receives a notification email from eMix, 2) logs in or signs in as a new user, and 3) downloads the exam. The exam can then be sent to a PACS (picture archiving and communications system), viewed with the eMix viewer, or burned to a CD. eMix builds on innovations in cloud computing. The result is a simple, universal exchange of imaging data in real time. The system is easy to deploy, because there is no hardware or software to purchase.

Google has officially announced that its Project Fi will be rebranded to ‘Google Fi’. They have also expanded Fi’s support to multiple phones like Samsung, Moto, LG, iPhone and OnePlus. The service for iPhone will be in beta for the time being. Even though Google admits that the process for iPhone will require “a few extra steps to get set up”, there will be a new Google Fi iOS app to help customers get comfortable with the process. What is Google Fi? Google Fi is a “mobile virtual network operator” and is recognized for its unique approach compared to most other network carriers. It does not operate on its own network, but piggybacks on those of T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular, handing a customer’s phone to whichever offers the strongest connection at any given time. Fi also offers simplified data plans, easy international use, and a slew of other perks. It has no long-term contracts- a customer has to pay on a month to month basis. The data costs the same internationally as it does at home, in most countries. There’s just a single payment “plan,” which starts at $20 for access to a line, plus an additional $10 for every gigabyte consumed. If a user has only one line and uses more than 6GB, they only pay a maximum of $80 for that month. The Catch with Fi for iPhones Fi operates as a virtual network operator, and only a few phones including Google Pixels and those that are explicitly “designed for Fi” will be able to dynamically switch between those carriers’ networks. Android phones and iPhones that are that aren’t built specifically for Google Fi will miss out on this functionality. In addition, since the iPhone will receive support in beta, there can be a less-than-smooth experience for customers who choose to use Fi on their iPhones. Important secondary features like visual voicemail, calls and texts over Wi-Fi, automated spam detection, and international tethering will be left out because of the beta support. The Fi website cautions that iPhone users will have to do a bit of tweaking to get their texting feature to work properly. The iMessage service will function “out of the box,” APN settings will need to be modified to enable MMS. That being said, the real catch with Google Fi has always been its simplicity and affordability, both of which will remain irrespective of the device a customer chooses to use. Google Fi still has some catching up to do with other carriers when it comes to features like including support for the RCS Universal Profile for texting and number sharing for things like LTE smartwatches. This announcement of extending Fi’s support for multiple devices does signal Google’s efforts to broaden its user base and boost device support.

Associated PressBEIJING (AP) – If China’s leadership were a one-man show, Li Keqiang might have landed the Communist Party’s top job Thursday. He was President Hu Jintao’s preferred successor, but the need to balance party factions meant that the post went to consensus candidate Xi Jinping.Li instead will play a different but still pivotal role within the seven-man council where Beijing’s power is centered. As China’s presumptive premier, he will be charged with steering its mammoth economy, which is slowing after years of double-digit growth. Parents, stop beating yourself up Beijing hadn’t acknowledged the problem yet, and Li oversaw a campaign to squelch reporting about it, harass activists and isolate affected villages. When the government finally did go public four years later, Li showed canny political instincts by quickly channeling government assistance to victims and making public shows of compassion.Li has called for structural reform of China’s economy, citing the need for greater balance, coordination and stability. In an April speech to the Boao Forum, a gathering of government officials and business leaders in southern China, he said China wants to create an “open, transparent, fair, competitive, and predictable marketplace and legal environment.”Yet similar pledges have been made many times before, including in China’s latest Five Year Plan. Questions remain about Li’s willingness to take on vested interests, particularly in the state-owned enterprises, said Patrick Chovanec, a business professor at Beijing’s Tsinghua University.“It remains to be seen whether Li will come out as a leader, or just follow a weak, watered-down consensus,” Chovanec said.That demand for consensus severely constrains the scope of any administrative reform, even though Li and the party say they are necessary, said U.S. Naval Academy China scholar Yu Maochun.

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Top Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix “You can’t change the key parts of China’s economic structure without fundamentally changing China’s political structure, so I don’t expect much” from Li, Yu said.Since his 2007 appointment to the Standing Committee, Li has overseen modest progress in his areas of responsibility, including public health, food safety and housing, which have long been plagued by funding difficulties, lax supervision and soaring prices.He’s maintained a steady, if low-key, schedule of meetings and speeches. A visit last year to the Chinese autonomous region of Hong Kong attracted the greatest attention _ though not necessarily for the right reasons.The stifling security surrounding Li and his unwillingness to meet with political critics seemed to cast him as a typical Chinese leader, tone deaf to public opinion in the former British colony, which maintains political freedoms and its own legal system.Li has largely steered clear of the webs of corruption surrounding other leading Chinese officials, although questions have been raised over whether his brother’s powerful position at the government tobacco monopoly clashes with Li’s role in making health policy. Li’s formative years are typical of the fifth generation of communist leaders. He was introduced to politics during the chaotic 1966-76 Cultural Revolution, then entered the prestigious Peking University.After graduation, Li went to work at the Communist Youth League, an organization that grooms university students for party roles, and at the time was led by Hu.After serving as Henan governor, Li’s next posting was in the northeastern rustbelt province of Liaoning, where he oversaw a revival that drew foreign investment from BMW and Intel.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

He has been an enforcer, keeping a lid on bad news, but has also been able to rapidly reverse course.He was governor of the agricultural province of Henan in 1998 during an unusual explosion of AIDS cases.
