Brazil's president does not think truckers have reason to strike: spokesman

Brazil's president does not think truckers have reason to strike: spokesmanBRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro believes there is no reason for the country's truckers to go on strike, his spokesman said on Monday. General Otavio Rego Barros told reporters in Brasilia that the government's talks with truckers were aimed at securing a good outcome to avoid a strike. A 2018 truckers strike paralyzed Brazil's economy, and the government recently pushed state-oil firm Petroleo Brasileiro not to raise diesel prices for fear of fresh strikes.

Elon Musk Boasts Tesla Built the Best Chip in the World, Drops Nvidia

Elon Musk Boasts Tesla Built the Best Chip in the World, Drops NvidiaAt first it seems improbable -- how could it be that Tesla, who has never designed a chip before -- would design the best chip in the world? the chief executive officer said Monday at an investor day focused on autonomous driving. Tesla switched over to its own chips and self-driving computer from Nvidias for the Model S and Model X about a month ago, and for the Model 3 about 10 days ago, Musk told investors at Teslas headquarters in Palo Alto, California. Nvidia disputed some of the claims Tesla made in its presentation, saying that the electric-car maker was comparing a whole computers performance with that of one chip.

Eastern Libyan forces plan to intensify Tripoli offensive

Eastern Libyan forces plan to intensify Tripoli offensiveThe Libyan National Army (LNA) force loyal to commander Khalifa Haftar allied to a parallel government in the east has launched an offensive but has been unable to breach the southern defenses of the city. Forces loyal to Tripoli drove back the LNA in recent days to the southern suburb of Ain Zara, the main scene of fighting, Reuters reporters visiting the area said, even though the LNA said it had launched air strikes on military sites in the capital. LNA spokesman Ahmed Mismari denied there had been a retreat but said an advance by LNA forces had slowed because of the dense population in the areas where fighting was taking place.

Halliburton sees signs of price recovery, shares dip

Halliburton sees signs of price recovery, shares dipBetter-than-expected revenue in North America, along with the company's claim that prices were bottoming out, initially drove shares in the oilfield services giant almost 5 percent higher after it published first quarter results. "I don't think there was anything in there to get people off the sidelines," said Jennifer Rowland, an analyst at brokerage Edward Jones, arguing the company's comments fell short of what was needed to shift sentiment around the industry. Halliburton and larger rival Schlumberger NV have been struggling with a tightening of spending by U.S. oil producers in response to shareholder pressure for greater returns following a period of heavy investment in shale.
