(Photo: AFP/Josh Edelson) Trump has repeatedly called for companies to move production to the United States, or to keep it there, while pushing aggressive trade actions aimed at narrowing the US trade deficit, which he equates with theft from Americans. "Apple prices may increase because of the massive Tariffs we may be imposing on China - but there is an easy solution where there would be ZERO tax, and indeed a tax incentive," Trump tweeted. "Make your products in the United States instead of China. Start building new plants now. Exciting!" But the higher cost of wages in the United States could offset the benefits Apple might gain by avoiding tariffs affecting its products manufactured in China. The Trump administration has placed punitive tariffs on … [Read more...] about Trump calls on Apple to move production from China to US

The company told trade officials in a letter on Friday that the proposed tariffs would affect prices for a “wide range” of Apple products, including its Watch, but it did not mention the iPhone.

Viet Nam News by Robert Bicknell Can changing clubs make a difference in your game as a professional? We read all the time that a well-known Tour pro decided to switch brands, mostly due to a ridiculous amount of money being waved in his/her face. What people do not realize is that many of these pros are not entirely stupid and usually demand that the company make a virtual copy of their old tried and true club, with minimal cosmetic or technical changes, and just a new brand stamped on it. What’s old is new… sort of. But occasionally, the manufacturer might demand the player accept the designs they currently have, modified a bit to meet the player’s requirements. This can be something as simple as weighting, or grinding the sole a bit differently than what is actually on the market. But, almost without exception, once the player has a brand new set of clubs in his brand new bag, his game usually goes completely to hell, at least for a short while.

Natural surroundings: Waterway in U Minh Ha.-VNA/VNS Photo Huynh The Anh Tran Vinh Tuan, a 46-year-old visitor from HCM City, is so fond of the park that he comes every month or two. “I can fish, breathe the fresh air, and listen to the singing of hundreds of birds,” he said. “Living and working in HCM City, I have to deal with air and noise pollution. But here, I always feel relaxed and recharged to go back to work the next day.” The park’s name U Minh, which refers to darkness, remains a mystery to some. It was so called because of the lack of sunlight caused by the density of trees. Even locals at times found it difficult to navigate. Separated by the rivers Trem and Cai Tau, the park has two major areas called U Minh Thuong (Upper Park) and U Minh Ha (Lower Park). The first is located in Kien Giang Province’s An Minh District, about 65km from Rach Gia City, and the latter is in Ca Mau Province, 25km from Ca Mau City.
