  • Town That Chased Away Starbucks Sees Its Identity Being Endangered Again

    A hamlet that looks as though it would fit neatly into a model-train layout at Christmastime is battling once again to sustain its small-town character against the relentless march of the large chain stores. Twenty years ago, Katonah, 45 miles north of New York City in Westchester County, ran Starbucks out of town. In an effort to halt the move, the Town Board of Bedford, which encompasses Katonah as well as the hamlets of Bedford and Bedford Hills, is scheduled to hold a hearing on Tuesday at which it may vote on a zoning amendment that would reduce the scale of new stores in the three downtown areas to 4,000 square feet, from 7,500 square feet.

  • A royal milestone: Britain's Princess Charlotte christened at church on queen's estate

    Prince William and his wife, Kate, marked a milestone for their newborn baby Princess Charlotte on Sunday — a christening ceremony on Queen Elizabeth II's country estate that was steeped in royal tradition.

  • Transit referendum: Who will pay for transportation improvements now?

    With a resounding No vote in the transit plebiscite, Metro Vancouver's old problem is new again: everyone wants more transit, but can't agree on how to pay for it. "Doing nothing is simply not an option," said B.C. Transportation Minister Todd Stone said shortly after the No vote. A Yes vote would have meant higher sales tax in Metro Vancouver and $7.5 billion in transit improvements, including the Broadway subway in Vancouver, light rail in Surrey and Langley, and 11 new rapid bus routes.

  • China rolls out emergency measures to prevent stock market crash

    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's stock markets face a make-or-break week after officials rolled out an unprecedented series of steps at the weekend to prevent a full-blown stock market crash that would threaten the world's second-largest economy. In an extraordinary weekend of policy moves, brokerages and fund managers vowed to buy massive amounts of stocks, helped by China's state-backed margin finance company which in turn would be aided by a direct line of liquidity from the central bank. China has also orchestrated a halt to new share issues, with dozens of firms scrapping their IPO plans in separate but similarly worded statements over the weekend, in a tactic authorities have used before to support markets.
