Despite the White House ramping up its rhetoric, the United States remains a free and fair press, Ben Goldberger the assistant managing editor of Time magazine told CNBC on Wednesday.

The year 2018 has been marked by manipulation, abuse of truth, along with efforts by governments to instigate mistrust of the facts, the magazine said in an essay when it named killed and imprisoned journalists as Person of the Year for 2018 on Tuesday.

“There’s no doubt that the rhetoric from the White House about the demonization of the media as ‘the enemy of the people,’ or the willingness to dismiss anything including credible news reporting as fake news, is incredibly worrisome and chilling,” Goldberger said. “But that said, I return to what I said about the United States — this remains a free and fair press.”

“Journalists here enjoy legal protections that are the envy of those in virtually every other country,” he added.

Italy is no longer Europe's problem child as France's protest crisis grows

Italy was firmly in the spotlight — and on Europe’s naughty step — until recent weeks for its budget-busting spending plans but civil unrest in France is now dominating Europe’s attention.

Riots, looting and vandalism plagued Paris and other cities at the weekend as France witnessed its fourth consecutive weekend of anti-government demonstrations that have made President Macron’s government look vulnerable.

The unrest, coupled with political uncertainty in Europe – seen in Germany as Angela Merkel winds down her leadership and wider Europe ahead of European parliamentary elections in May 2019 – mean that Italy’s controversial 2019 budget should no longer be the main focus of attention in the region.

“Italy’s risks to the market, and even Europe, seems quite limited in the sense that you have a lot of safeguards in place and we’ve already seen a lot of risk-off in Italy,” Christian Mueller-Glissmann, Managing Director, Portfolio Strategy at Goldman Sachs, told CNBC on Monday.

France's Macron announces tax cuts, wage increases after violent protests

President Emmanuel Macron on Monday announced wage rises for the poorest workers and tax cuts for pensioners, offering concessions after weeks of often violent protests that have challenged his authority.

In his first national address following two weekends of the worst unrest in France in years, Macron sought to restore calm after accusations that his political methods and economic policies were fracturing the country.

“We want a France where one can live in dignity through one’s work and on this we have gone too slowly,” Macron said on primetime television.

“I ask the government and parliament to do what is necessary.”

The president’s address came 48 hours after protesters fought street battles with riot police in Paris, hurling missiles, torching cars and looting shops.

Macron faces a delicate task: he needs to persuade the middle class and blue-collar workers that he hears their anger over a squeeze on household spending, without being exposed to charges of caving in to street politics.

He said people on the minimum wage would see their salaries increase by 100 euros a month from 2019 without extra costs to employers. Pensioners earning less than 2,000 euros would see recent increase in social security taxes scrapped.

But he also said he would stick to his reform agenda and refused to reinstate a wealth tax.

“We will respond to the economic and social urgency with strong measures, by cutting taxes more rapidly, by keeping our spending under control, but not with U-turns,” Macron said.

Construction underway on West Africa's 'first utility scale wind farm'

Ground has been broken on the development of West Africa’s “first utility-scale wind power project”, located in Senegal.

The 158.7 megawatt (MW) Parc Eolien Taiba N’Diaye, or PETN, is set to be completed in 2020, according to renewable energy firm Lekela.

The 46-turbine facility will use turbines from Danish company Vestas and will generate more than 450,000 megawatt hours of energy annually, boosting Senegal’s generation capacity by approximately 15 percent, Lakela said. The project will be built near the community of Taiba N’Diaye.

“Senegal has been quick to embrace the idea and the advantages of renewable energy,” Chris Antonopoulos, Lekela’s CEO, said in a statement towards the end of last week.

The International Renewable Energy Agency has described Africa as being rich in renewable sources of energy such as the wind and sun.

Kenya, for example, is home to the Lake Turkana Wind Power project, which is made up of 365 wind turbines. The project has a total installed capacity of 310 MW and has been producing and sending electricity to Kenya’s national grid since September.

Transport giant Scania is working on a hydrogen-powered refuse truck

Transport giant Scania is working on a hydrogen-powered refuse truck

Swedish transport firm Scania is developing a hydrogen fuel cell refuse truck with waste handling company Renova.

In an announcement Monday, the business said the vehicle would have a fully electrified power-train and an electrified compactor.

“We are highly interested in gaining more experience of fuel cells in actual customer operations,” Scania’s Marita Nilsson said in a statement. “Fuel cells constitute a promising technology in the needed decarbonisation of transports,” Nilsson added.

Scania added that it was cooperating with both the Swedish Energy Agency and Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology on the project. It’s expected that the fuel cell truck will be delivered either at the end of 2019 or beginning of 2020.

Hans Zackrisson, Renova’s head of development, said Monday that electrification using fuel cells fueled by hydrogen was a “highly appealing alternative” for heavy commercial vehicles like refuse trucks.

“The trucks benefit from all the advantages of electrification while maintaining some of the best aspects of fossil-fuel operations, namely range, hours in service and payload,” Zackrisson added.

The European Commission has described hydrogen as an energy carrier with “great potential for clean, efficient power in stationary, portable and transport applications.”

Scania is among a number of companies looking to develop and launch hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. In September, for example, railway manufacturer Alstom launched what it described as the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell train.

Its Coradia iLint uses fuel cells that turn hydrogen and oxygen into electricity. In terms of speed, the zero-emission train can travel up to 140 kilometers per hour.

SoftBank's record IPO reaches $23.5 bln after extra share sale

SoftBank Group Corp is set to raise 2.65 trillion yen ($23.5 billion) in Japan’s biggest-ever IPO – a share sale widely regarded as finalising the group’s transition from domestic telco to a monolithic global tech investor.

Telco unit SoftBank Corp on Monday priced its stock at 1,500 yen apiece, as previously indicated.

It also said it will sell all extra shares set aside for excess demand, taking the total just shy of the record $25 billion raised in 2014 by Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, a SoftBank Group portfolio company.

The group, which controls the world’s biggest tech private equity fund at nearly $100 billion, will use the proceeds to invest in startups which have ranged from tiny games makers to U.S. ride-hailing giant Uber Technologies Inc.

“Demand was well above the number of shares on offer,” SoftBank Corp said, declining to disclose by how much.

The stock will debut on the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s first section on Dec. 19.

UK banks may have been used for Iran payments related to Huawei: WSJ

British banks Standard Chartered and HSBC were reportedly among financial institutions misled by Chinese technology giant Huawei into funneling illicit payments from Iran, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday, citing sources familiar with the matter.

According to the Journal, Huawei allegedly used a third-party intermediary — a small Hong Kong-based technology firm called Skycom — to channel payments between the company and Iran. The Journal reported that a spokesman for Huawei declined to comment.

Huawei’s chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested during a layover in Vancouver, Canada on Dec. 1 at the request of U.S. authorities. Beijing has threatened unspecified “severe consequences” if Canadian courts don’t release Meng, the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei. Meng returns to court for a bail hearing Monday.

Both HSBC and Standard Chartered are based in the U.K., and both have been under scrutiny from global regulators for past money-laundering violations. The two banks also have had federal monitors in place to watch for the types of transactions described in the Huawei filings — but neither bank has been accused of any wrongdoing as part of this case.

Responding to CNBC, Standard Chartered declined to comment but clarified that the bank was not a target of investigations related to Huawei. HSBC also declined to comment on the WSJ story.

“The US Department of Justice has confirmed that HSBC is not under investigation in this case,” said Stuart Levey, Chief Legal Officer at HSBC in a response to an email from CNBC.

Huawei has also been under U.S. government scrutiny since 2012 for a wide range of purported issues, such as alleged government-supported cyber espionage, intellectual property theft and violations of sanctions, including those related to Iran.

According to the court case outlined on Friday, Huawei executives allegedly knew of an investigation into sanctions violations as early as 2017, and had been “altering their travel patterns to avoid any travel to or through the United States.” Meng’s attorney has countered that trade-war tensions were responsible for the travel changes.

Japan's top three telcos to shun Huawei, ZTE network equipment: Kyodo

Last week sources told Reuters that Japan planned to ban government purchases of equipment from Huawei and ZTE to ensure strength in its defences against intelligence leaks and cyber attacks.

A SoftBank Group Corp spokesman said Japan’s third-largest telco was closely watching government policy and is continuing to consider its options. The amount of equipment in use from Chinese makers “is relatively small”, he said.

The country’s top two telecommunications operators, NTT Docomo Inc and KDDI Corp, said the firms had not made any decision yet.

Docomo does not use Huawei or ZTE network equipment, but it has partnered with Huawei on 5G trials. KDDI also does not use Huawei equipment in its “core” network, a spokeswoman said, adding it does not use any ZTE network equipment.

Huawei did not respond to Reuters request for comment, while ZTE declined to comment.

Huawei has already been locked out of the U.S. market, and Australia and New Zealand have blocked it from building 5G networks amid concerns of its possible links with China’s government. Huawei has said Beijing has no influence over it.

Japan’s decision to keep it out would be another setback for Huawei, whose chief financial officer was recently arrested by Canadian officials for extradition to the United States.

World financial markets have been roiled since news of the arrest, on worries it could reignite a Sino-U.S. trade row that was only just showing signs of easing.

Shares of SoftBank, which has the deepest relationship with Huawei among the big Japanese telcos, fell the most among the three top Japanese telcos on Monday, ending down 3.5 percent.

Bernie Madoff’s inner circle, 10 years after his arrest

Bernie Madoff turned 80 in 2018. His longtime defense attorney, Ira Lee Sorkin, says he last spoke with Madoff earlier this year. He’s doing OK,” Sorkin said, “as well as one could expect someone to be OK when they know they’re going to die in prison.” In a 2013 interview at the prison, he said life behind bars was proving to be less stressful than life on Wall Street. “It’s kind of like being in the Army,” he said, “only you’re not worried about getting killed.”

Bernie Madoff's inner circle, 10 years after his arrest

Bernie Madoff turned 80 in 2018. He apparently marked the occasion quietly at the medium security Federal Correctional Institution in Butner, North Carolina, where he is in the 10th year of a 150-year sentence. His longtime defense attorney, Ira Lee Sorkin, says he last spoke with Madoff earlier this year.

“He’s keeping his mind active. He’s doing OK,” Sorkin said, “as well as one could expect someone to be OK when they know they’re going to die in prison.”

Madoff has cut back on his contacts with the news media, not responding to multiple emails from CNBC ahead of the 10th anniversary of his arrest on Dec. 11, 2008. In a 2013 interview at the prison, he said life behind bars was proving to be less stressful than life on Wall Street.

“It’s kind of like being in the Army,” he said, “only you’re not worried about getting killed.”

But in a 2015 email, he wrote, “I’m hanging in there. I miss my family terribly. How on earth did I get myself into this nightmare?”
