Colourbox United States to bring the Chinese steel producers over five times higher than customs duties, says the BBC. Large tariffs on Chinese-made, particularly cold-rolled steel plates, which are used in the manufacture of automobiles and transport containers as well as in construction. US Customs Order of the increase comes amid tighter trade tensions between the two parties. US and European steel producers have argued China's distorting the international market by selling at dumped prices of steel, as well as bringing oversupply from China. United States of America will charge the 71 percent anti-dumping duty manufactured from cold rolled steel in Japan. The decision itself affects only a small proportion of imports into China and Japan steel and does not have a major impact, but it is politically significant.

Image Source: Jimmy Kimmel LiveThe presumptive Republican nominee for president of the United States of America, Donald Trump, made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this Wednesday.As has become the norm for his talk show appearances, it was a relatively mellow affair, with Trump avoiding any of the colorful language or boisterous claims that draw crowds to his rallies all across the country, but there was one moment in particular that stood out like a sore thumb among the rest of the banter.DON T MISS: The iPhone 7 might actually be in troubleAfter joking around with Trump about his support for Hillary in previous campaigns, Kimmel asked the candidate what he thought needed to be done about the increasingly heated debate over transgender bathroom laws.Confusingly, these points seem to contradict one another, as many states would inevitably decide not to protect the rights of that group.Kimmel attempted to cut through the noise by asking Trump a pointed question about whether or not he, as a voting citizen of New York state, would vote to allow a transgender individual the right to choose an appropriate bathroom.They proceed to go in circles for a few seconds until Kimmel finally asks Trump what the right thing to do is in this situation.
Jeanette Garcia and Gavin Jones, researchers at IBM Research's Almaden lab in San Jose, discovered a new way to recycle a type of plastic used for CDs and baby bottles so it doesn't leach BPA.IBM Research SAN JOSE -- Plastic from baby bottles, CDs and eyeglass lenses is tougher to recycle than soda bottles so it often end up in landfills leaching toxic chemicals instead of being transformed into something new.But a discovery by scientists at IBM's Almaden Research Center in San Jose is giving this type of hard plastic, called polycarbonates, a new life in a safer form.On Monday, IBM Research said that scientists from the Almaden lab found a way to transform polycarbonates into a stronger type of plastic that doesn't leach BPA, a chemical that has sparked health concerns in recent years.The researchers added a fluoride reactant, a base that was similar to baking powder, and heat to old CDs to create a new plastic that's strong enough that it doesn't decompose in a way that leaches BPA.Polycarbonates are more difficult to recycle than other types of plastics, such as disposable soda and water bottles, which are easier to melt down and remold, she noted.Garcia worked with Gavin Jones, a computational chemist on the study, which was published in the peer-reviewed journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America."We're looking for partners at this point to push it forward and bring it to the next level and start using the methodology and exploring what other materials we can make and what the scope of this is," she said.In 2008, major retailers including Wal-Mart said they were pulling baby bottles, food containers, water bottles and other plastic products that contained BPA because of concerns that exposure to the chemical could cause brain and hormone development problems in infants and children.

The hit mobile game Pokemon Go will not make an appearance at the 2016 Rio Olympic GamesThe upcoming Rio Olympics 2016 in Brazil has seen its share of controversy even before the start of the games.Reports such as the Australian team not happy with the accommodation in the Olympic village and the Aussie squad being robbed of their team shirts and valuables are already giving a tough time to organisers.While these are issues the authorities are expected to deal with, what has outraged the athletes not the plumbing and electricity but the lack of access to the hit mobile game Pokemon Go.The game which made its debut in United States of America, Australia and New Zealand last month has since taken the globe by storm.It has been launched in more than 30 countries.
Microsoft has started selling its HoloLens virtual reality headsets to all of its business customers and developer partners in the United States of America and Canada.Redmond's still not offering the finished product – only a Development Edition is on sale for now.But at least the hardware is now being offered to anyone willing to hand over their credit card details and is shipping ASAP, as opposed to the previous requirement to apply and be approved by Microsoft's virtual-reality-buying-bouncers before waiting a while for kit to land.It's no co-incidence that Microsoft's made this change within days of the release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition, because that emission includes the Windows Holographic August 2016 Update.Micrsoft's also added attach-to-process debugging facilities, so you can use Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 to connect to a running app on a HoloLens and start debugging it.All without a Visual Studio project to work from.
Not since Eli Manning stared blankly into the void as his brother won Super Bowl 50 have the people of these United States of America so desperately needed a face to be explained.But that deep desire re-emerged this week, when Olympic-legend-turned-internet-meme Michael Phelps pulled together a face for the ages, henceforth known as Angry Michael Phelps Face.It was formed in the moments before the men s 200 butterfly semifinal in Rio de Janeiro, as his South African rival, Chad le Clos, danced or boxed or something in the ready room.Like Manning s face before him, and Michael Jordan s before him, Phelps was quickly altered, captioned and transformed by the collective unit known as the internet.It was used as a symbol of pain and suffering, of frustration and anger.We knew what we saw when we looked at Angry Michael Phelps Face, but one question remained: What did Angry Michael Phelps see when he stared out from the Face and into the dark world in front of him?
There s a giant solar eclipse headed our way, and it s slated to be the biggest and best … ever.Dubbed the Great American Total Solar Eclipse, this natural phenomenon is precisely a year away, NASA says.On August 21, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses the United States of America, the agency writes.The path of the Moon s umbral shadow begins in northern Pacific and crosses the USA from west to east through parts of the following states: Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina, NASA continues, The Moon s penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering most of North America.In Oregon, where the eclipse is to start, organizers have already begun making plans for the Oregon SolarFest, and calling the event a rare, mind-blowing cosmic experience.Indeed, the historical eclipse is said to be the first total eclipse visible exclusively in the U.S. since the nation s founding in 1776.
