Tropical storm losing strength as it nears Florida, 20 dead in Dominica

Waves crash along the shores of the Malecon in Santo Domingo, Dominican RepublicBy David Adams MIAMI (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Erika was soaking Haiti with heavy rain and strong winds on Friday as it swirled across the Caribbean but showed signs of losing steam as it headed toward south Florida, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said. Twenty people were confirmed dead on the island of Dominica, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said in an address carried on television and online late Friday. Erika was no longer forecast to make landfall in the United States as a hurricane due to some likely weakening over mountainous areas of Haiti and Cuba.

Gregorius shines as Yankees find power to crush Braves

MLB: New York Yankees at Atlanta Braves(The Sports Xchange) - Shortstop Didi Gregorius went a surprising 4-for-5 with a homer and a career-high six RBIs as the New York Yankees broke out for a 15-4 interleague rout of the Atlanta Braves to remain 1 1/2 games behind Toronto in the AL East.

Strong finish puts Tseng one ahead in Alabama

LPGA: Canadian Pacific Women's Open - Final Round(Reuters) - Taiwan's Yani Tseng produced a stunning eagle-birdie finish to seize a one-stroke lead in the weather-disrupted second round of the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic in Prattville, Alabama, on Friday. The former world number one covered her final six holes in five under par to shoot a flawless eight-under 64 on the Senator Course at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Tseng struck a six-iron to four feet to set up an eagle at her 17th hole, the par-five eighth, and then had to wait out a 96-minute weather delay due to the threat of lightning before returning to the course to pocket her sixth birdie of the round to post an 10-under total of 134.

Focus turns to U.S. data as China slowdown looms

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly after the opening bell in New YorkAfter a dizzying two weeks that saw a rapid plunge and rebound in equity prices, investors are looking forward to a week of economic data that may provide clarity on the likelihood of a near-term U.S. interest rate hike and help tamp down the market's recent wild swings. The economic figures will culminate in Friday’s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy. Car sales, construction spending, the Federal Reserve's "beige book" and jobs growth may show the economy is strong enough to withstand the first rate hike in nearly a decade from the Federal Reserve, despite worries about a hard landing for China’s economy.

Fed says rate hike next month hinges on market volatility

Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer speaks during a TV interview during the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City's annual Jackson Hole Economic Policy Symposium in WyomingThe Federal Reserve on Friday left the door open to a September interest rate hike even while several U.S. central bank officials acknowledged that turmoil in financial markets, if prolonged, could delay the first policy tightening in nearly a decade. Some top policymakers, including Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer, said recent volatility in global markets could quickly ease and possibly pave the way for the U.S. rate hike, for which investors, governments and central banks around the world are bracing. With a key policy meeting set for Sept. 16-17, at least five Fed officials spoke publicly in what amounted to a jockeying for position on whether increasing the Fed's benchmark overnight lending rate was too risky amid an economic slowdown in China, a rising U.S. dollar and falling commodity prices .

Unions set sights on e-commerce and manufacturing firms after NLRB ruling

Worker carries an Amazon box to be delivered in New YorkOn Thursday the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled the owner of a California recycling plant was a "joint employer" with the contractor that hired workers at the plant, essentially forcing both to bargain with the union together or risk violating U.S. labor law. Business groups, arguing that the ruling could lead to higher costs and hurt the economy, are pushing the Republican-led Congress to overturn it, in part it because the company named in the decision - Browning-Ferris - cannot challenge it in a federal court without overcoming a number of procedural hurdles. Unions see the decision as a breakthrough not just in efforts to help employees organizes at franchisees of McDonald's Corp and other chains but also as a tool to counter the proliferation of subcontracting in other industries in which workers are one or two steps removed from the companies indirectly controlling them.

Exclusive: Russia's Kaspersky threatened to 'rub out' rival, email shows

Eugene Kaspersky, chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, listens to a question during an interview in New YorkBy Joseph Menn SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - In 2009, Eugene Kaspersky, co-founder of one of the world's top security companies, told some of his lieutenants that they should attack rival antivirus software maker AVG Technologies N.V. by "rubbing them out in the outhouse," one of several previously undisclosed emails shows. As previously reported by Reuters, the plan involved creating fake virus samples and malware identifications to fool competitors into disabling or deleting important files, thereby creating problems for their customers.
