Powerful earthquake leaves Mexico reeling

Today 00:36 GMT

A powerful 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit southern Mexico on Friday, causing minor building damage and panic in the capital, just five months after an earthquake killed hundreds of people.

This was away from major urban centers, but it was powerful enough to leave tall buildings swaying for more than a minute in Mexico City, more than 400 kilometers (250 miles) away. Local media published images and videos showing bricks and rubble that had fallen from buildings, and products falling off shelves in a supermarket.

Dashed hopes for Mexico oil boom leave Gulf Coast hotels idle

Saturday 06:05 GMT

When a Mexican real estate investment trust bought four hotels along the country’s Gulf coast operating under the Marriott, Quality Inn and Fiesta Inn brands, it expected the government’s recent energy reform to attract droves of oil executives, engineers and technicians.

Although many in the sector are hopeful that hotels will again fill with oil workers as firms that won contracts in Mexico’s early auctions begin deploying staff, Gulf Coast hoteliers worry travelers will be deterred by the country’s worst ever surge in violent crime.

My son is responsible, my daughter stays in debt — how do I split my estate?

Saturday 05:10 GMT

Your son has a financially responsible life, so he will be glad with any bequest and, I’m sure, will be heartened to know there is money set aside for home improvements or his children’s education.

See: My father-in-law chose me as heir to his $2 million fortune — leaving his wayward son out in the cold. More than likely, there will be some money left when my current husband and I are gone. Is there a way to assure that whatever she might be left would be protected from her wasting it away and instead, possibly contribute to her old age?

Tammy Duckworth faces predicament in Senate over maternity leave

Thursday 11:47 GMT

Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Illinois, says she's ready to "change some rules" in the Senate as she becomes the first sitting U.S. senator to give birth when she welcomes her second child, a baby girl due in April. Duckworth told Politico's "Women Rule" podcast that she faces an uphill battle when it comes to being a mother in office.

"Because if I take maternity leave, then I won't be allowed to sponsor legislation or vote during that time period," she explained. In the meantime, Duckworth said she continues to work through current legislation and rules to find a solution to her predicament "so that other legislators behind me can continue to do their jobs but also look after their families."

“Within 20 minutes the HomePod had caused a white discoloured ring to appear on the wood that some days later has faded, although still hasn't completely disappeared,” it explained. “We subsequently tested the HomePod on other materials: the same wood that hadn't been treated with Danish oil and a regular lacquered desk and haven't seen the same issues.”

While the smart speaker has garnered some positive reviews, tech websites Wirecutter and Pocket Lint note that the device can stain wood.

Apple's HomePod leaves an undesired impression in some homes

Friday 13:38 GMT

The HomePod features Apple's assistant Siri, which is still catching up to Amazon's Alexa and Google's eponymous Assistant in responsiveness and versatility.

Some people who bought the just-released $349 speaker, dubbed the HomePod, are reporting that it leaves a white ring on the surfaces of wooden furniture. In an explanation posted Wednesday, Apple said the problem occurs with speakers that, like the HomePod, are equipped with a silicon base to minimize vibration.
