NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are slipping in afternoon trading on Wall Street after an early rally. Energy companies are leading the declines as the price of oil drops. The market started the day with gains on optimism that policymakers in Asia will do more to help boost growth in the region.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Apple says its new iPad will be available in November. The larger-screen iPad Pro model is aimed at countering weakening consumer demand for tablets. The iPad was a runaway success when it was introduced in 2010, but sales have been declining since 2013. In part, that's because competitors are now selling a number of lower-priced tablets that use Google's Android software. But sales of rivals' tablets have been getting weaker, too.
NEW YORK (AP) — New York is going to be the first city to require warnings about salty foods on restaurant menus. The city's Board of Health voted unanimously today to require chain restaurants to put salt-shaker symbols on menus to denote dishes with more than the recommended daily limit of 2,300 milligrams of sodium. That's about a teaspoon. The rule takes effect Dec. 1. It's the latest in a series of novel nutritional efforts in the nation's biggest city.
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Federal regulators are halting a five-year study of the risk of cancer in communities around six U.S. nuclear plants and a nuclear fuel site. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says the remaining work on a pilot study would take too long and cost too much. The commission says radiation releases, when they occur, are too small to cause observable increases in cancer risk. The nuclear sites being studied were in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Michigan and New Jersey and Tennessee.
NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump is asking CNN to donate the proceeds from ads airing during next week's Republican debate to veterans. In a letter to the cable news network, Trump says he's the reason the network sharply increased its rates ahead of the Sept. 16 debate in Simi Valley, California. The Republican presidential candidate says CNN should view debate coverage as a public service and give up profits.
