US: Teenager invents smart gun to save lives

An idea that started in his parents basement, nineteen year old Kai Kloepfer from Boulder, Colorado created a gun that works like a smartphone.   If the gun is picked up by an authorized user, a sensor recognizes the fingerprint and it will fire.  “I think this could be huge, I think this could be the future of firearms,” Kloepfer said.  This fingerprint sensor utilizes technologies from biometric security measures, which might be the solution to solving the United States' gun violence problem (and not only in US).

UBS sees low interest rates for next 18 months

The new head of UBS Switzerland, Martin Blessing, told Swiss newspaper SonntagsZeitung that he expects interest rates across Europe to remain low for the next 12-18 months.

And, over job places, he added that huge cuts jobs aren't scheduled; however, Blessing said that probably in the next few years there will be a slight drop in the number of employees.

Ryanair: flights sold-out, profits dropped

Ryanair said its third-quarter net profit fell nearly 8% as overcapacity in the European airline industry continues to depress ticket prices. Ryanair said net earnings fell to €95 million from €102.7 million a year earlier for the three months to the end of last year, owing to a sharp decline in the value of the pound after Britain's decision to leave the European Union. “We expect sterling to remain volatile for some time and we may see a slowdown in economic growth in both the UK and Europe as we move closer to Brexit,” Ryanair said.

Trump to sign Wall Street Reform

President Donald Trump will sign executive orders on Friday to review the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reforms and halt a Labor Department rule designed to curb potential conflicts among brokers who give retirement advice,  according to a White House spokeswoman. Trump's move marks a step toward making good on a campaign promise to dismantle the 2010 Dodd-Frank law, which was passed in the wake of the 2007-2009 financial crisis. The legislation forced banks to take various steps to prevent another financial crisis, including holding more capital and taking yearly “stress tests” to prove they could withstand economic turbulence. The financial industry, particularly its small community banks, complained the rules went too far.

Switzerland-Liechtenstein signed deal to exchange tax information

The year 2017 is an important one for the Swiss banking sector. As of January 1st, the country’s financial institutions are now obligated to share banking information. This new regulation effectively ends Switzerland’s reputation as a tax haven.  The Swiss finance ministry said on Thursday it had reached a deal with Liechtenstein to exchange tax information, potentially helping to uncover billions of dollars in undeclared assets kept by Swiss citizens in neighbouring country. “These assets will be declared and the person has the chance either to repatriate the assets to Switzerland, or he will be taxed and he keeps his money in Liechtenstein,” said Joerg Gasser, head of the State Secretariat for International Financial Matters, a branch of the finance ministry. The amount of undeclared Swiss assets in Liechtenstein, a principality of just 38,000 people sandwiched between Switzerland and Austria, is unknown.
