Jennifer Chambers The Detroit News Published 2:38 PM EDT Sep 26, 2018 Detroit — A charter high school in Detroit will close its doors on Monday to students and staff, after its board voted Wednesday that it could not sustain financial operations due to low enrollment.

Foreigners especially new arrivals often cite it as one of the most frustrating and bemusing aspects of living in France. You desperately need to post a letter, buy some medicine or visit your bank, but there you are standing in front of the "fermé" sign surprised that France seems to have shut down on the first day of the week. For French people, this is perfectly normal. Monday is for some a second Sunday and if shops are closed, well, it’s something you just have to get used to.

But where does this tradition of closing on Mondays come from? The reason lies in France's enshrined labour code, the Code du Travail, which was first published in 1910. The Code du Travail used to say that it was illegal for anyone to work more that six … [Read more...] about Members’ Q&A: Why are so many shops in France closed on Mondays?
You might recall that back in December, we told you about the tax dispute that Nokia was having with the Indian tax authorities relating to a manufacturing plant in the country. The factory is supposed to be turned over to Microsoft as part of the latter's $7 billion acquisition of Nokia's Devices and Services business. After being seized by Indian authorities, the plant was expected to be returned to Nokia after the Finnish based handset manufacturer paid 22.50 billion rupees ($367.17 million USD) into an escrow account as requested by the Delhi High Court. But the court had added new conditions for the return of the factory, leading to Nokia's decision to escalate the legal fight.Now the dispute moves to India's top court after Nokia appealed the High Court's ruling to the Indian Supreme Court. Since the factory is supposed to be turned over to Microsoft, the failure of the Delhi High Court to release the facility in return for the escrow payment as originally agreed to, could delay … [Read more...] about Nokia to appear in India’s top court on Monday to demand the return of its factory
According to an SEC 8-K form filed by Facebook, the latter has finally closed on its purchase of messaging app, WhatsApp. The deal was originally agreed to in February, and the original $19 billion purchase price has since ballooned to a final tally of $21.8 billion. The higher acquisition price is due to the appreciation in Facebook's stock since the deal was announced.Facebook announced on Monday that WhatsApp co-founder and CEO Jan Koum, will join Facebook's board of directors. Koum is looking at quite a pay day in four years. If he stays with the company for that period of time, he will receive shares currently worth $1.9 billion. But that is in lieu of a huge salary. Koum will be making just $1 a year at Facebook.Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says that Facebook will not make many changes to the messaging app in the short term, and will not add advertising on the service. WhatsApp is currently free for the first year with subscribers paying $1 a year thereafter. So far, Facebook has … [Read more...] about Facebook closes on WhatsApp purchase; final price exceeds $21 billion
