Mt. Gox set to liquidate as court denies rehabilitation

Mark Karpeles, chief executive of Mt. Gox, attends a news conference at the Tokyo District Court in Tokyo Mt. Gox, once the world's biggest bitcoin exchange, is likely to be liquidated after a Tokyo court dismissed the company's bid to resuscitate its business, the court-appointed administrator said on Wednesday. CEO Mark Karpeles is also likely to be investigated for liability in the collapse of the Tokyo-based firm, the provisional administrator, lawyer Nobuaki Kobayashi, said in a statement published on the Mt. Gox website. "The Tokyo District Court recognized that it would be difficult for the company to carry out the civil rehabilitation proceedings and dismissed the application for the commencement of the civil rehabilitation proceedings," he said. In Wednesday's order for provisional administration, the court put the company's assets under Kobayashi's control until bankruptcy proceedings officially commence and a bankruptcy trustee is named.

Fed should try to align projections with policy statement: Lockhart

Dennis Lockhart, President, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, takes part in a panel discussion titled "Twist and Shout: The Limits of U.S. Monetary Policy" at the Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills, California The U.S. Federal Reserve should try to make its communications on the expected path of interest rates more consistent with its policy statements, a top official at the central bank said on Wednesday. Dennis Lockhart, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, said the Fed's most recent projections for interest rates had been out of step with its pledges on policy. "It seemed to be inconsistent with the underlying decision of the committee and the underlying guidance," Lockhart told reporters in Atlanta, adding that he still feels the U.S. economy is strengthening quickly enough for the Fed to raise rates in the second half of 2015. The Fed issues a quarterly graphic that shows the level at which policymakers see the central bank's benchmark interest rate over the next few years.

China Q1 GDP at 18-month low, to cut reserve ratio for small banks

Labourers work at a construction site in Beijing By Adam Rose and Xiaoyi Shao BEIJING (Reuters) - China's economy expanded 7.4 percent between January and March, its slowest pace in 18 months, prompting authorities to act for the second time in as many weeks to shore up growth. Hours after the National Bureau of Statistics released the data, Premier Li Keqiang was quoted by state media as saying that China would reduce the amount of cash that some village banks hold at the central bank to help the farm sector. The relaxation of reserve requirements, alongside tax breaks for more companies to support job creation, comes just two weeks after China took its first step this year to juice its slackening economy - cutting taxes for small firms and speeding up investment in railways. The unveiling of new pro-growth measures in quick succession suggests China may be more worried about the foundering economy than it lets on, even though it has ruled out the use of major stimulus to fight short-term dips in growth.

GM to seek court protection against ignition suits

A man walks past a row of General Motors vehicles at a Chevrolet dealership on Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan (Reuters) - General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. bankruptcy court to bar plaintiffs from proceeding with lawsuits against the automaker for claims related to any actions before it filed for bankruptcy in 2009. The defect has been linked to the deaths of at least 13 people and resulted in the recall of 2.6 million GM vehicles. In a filing with U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation related to ignition claims until a judicial panel on multidistrict litigation decides on a motion to consolidate the claims and the bankruptcy court rules on whether the claims violate GM's 2009 bankruptcy sale order.

Kim Dotcom talks exclusively to Reuters during his Internet Party pool party at the Dotcom mansion in Coatesville By Naomi Tajitsu AUCKLAND (Reuters) - Internet tycoon Kim Dotcom holds court while bathing in the pool of a sprawling New Zealand mansion, fist bumping and chatting with some of the 700 guests gathered to celebrate the political party he launched last month to promote Internet freedom. In Dotcom's alternate universe, he is fighting extradition from his adopted country to the United States, where the hulking 40-year-old stands accused of massive copyright infringement related to the Megaupload file sharing site he founded in 2005. Last week, Hollywood studios filed their own lawsuit against Megaupload and Dotcom, and a few days later four major music labels followed their lead, cranking up pressure on the father-of-five who faces an extradition hearing in July. His anger over the injustice he says he faced during and after the dramatic raid, which was swiftly followed by the closure of Megaupload, prompted him to set up a political organization called the Internet Party.

Why A Broken Appliance Can Actually Be A Blessing

Why A Broken Appliance Can Actually Be A Blessing It's a situation most of us can identify with--our furnace or water heater breaks or our home air conditioning system fails. While it makes sense to replace these outdated appliances for more energy-efficient ones, the immediate need to fix the problem usually wins out. Most of us haven't saved enough to do an appliance overhaul. So we fix the issue, continue with the status quo, and - as an unintended result - we keep wasting power.
