  • First woman to be executed in 70 years in US state seeks clemency in husband's murder

    The only woman on death row in the state of Georgia will become the first female to be executed in 70 years in the state Monday unless the U.S. Supreme Court or the state parole board steps in with a last-minute reprieve. Kelly Renee Gissendaner, 46, is scheduled to die by injection of pentobarbital at 7 p.m. (0GMT) at the state prison in Jackson for the February 1997 murder of her husband, Douglas Gissendaner. The courts found she plotted the stabbing death of her husband by her boyfriend, Gregory Owen, who will be up for parole in eight years after accepting a life sentence and testifying against her. Gissendaner would be only the 16th American woman put to death since the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the death penalty to resume in 1976.

  • Connecticut launches probe into Lenovo use of Superfish software

    Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen's office said on Monday it has launched an investigation into Lenovo Group Ltd's sales of laptops pre-loaded with Superfish software, which the U.S. government last month warned made users vulnerable to cyber attacks. The office said that Jepsen last week sent letters to Lenovo, the world's biggest personal computer maker, and privately held software maker Superfish asking them to provide information, including contracts and emails that discuss their partnership. Reports that the pre-loaded software tracks users' web searching and browsing for advertising purposes are "alarming revelations" that suggest Lenovo may have "seriously undermined computer users' online security and privacy," Jepsen said in his Feb. 27 letter to Lenovo. A Lenovo spokesman said the company has seen Jepsen's letter "and will cooperate in responding to the query." Superfish has not yet received the letter but expects to cooperate fully with the investigation, according to an email from a spokeswoman.

Between heading backstage, watching the live action, and mingling during commercial breaks, there's a lot more fun that goes on when the cameras aren't rolling.

  • IBM shareholder sues company, alleging it overvalued chip unit

    By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - IBM Corp was sued on Monday by a shareholder that said it committed securities fraud by failing to write down a money-losing semiconductor unit before agreeing to pay another company $1.5 billion to take that unit off its hands. The lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court arose from IBM's announcement last Oct. 20 that it would sell the unit to GlobalFoundries Inc, and take a related $4.7 billion pre-tax charge. Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc is among IBM's largest shareholders. According to the complaint, IBM inflated its stock price before selling the semiconductor unit by carrying the unit's property, plant and equipment assets on its books at $2.4 billion, when it should have known the assets were worthless.

  • Pesticide likely killed two Quebec sisters in Thailand in 2012: coroner

    RIVIERE-DU-LOUP, Que. - A Quebec coroner has concluded that two sisters found dead in their hotel room in Thailand in 2012 were probably intoxicated by phosphine, a strong pesticide. The same pesticide was also believed to have been responsible for the recent deaths of two children in northern Alberta. Coroner Renee Roussel said Monday the fact Audrey, 20, and Noemi Belanger, 26, were both very sick and appeared to have the same symptoms led her to conclude they suffered the same health problem — intoxication. She said it is officially forbidden to use phosphine to fumigate hotel rooms in Thailand, but that it might in fact still be used.
