“I dont understand how the leadership got to the point where they [designed] a bill that didnt have the votes,” Gingrich said in an interview. “I dont understand artificial deadlines that lead to defeat.” The rush to pass the bill — with less than three weeks from unveiling to a scheduled floor vote — was mystifying to the former speaker, who said he would never bring a bill to the floor as many votes short as AHCA appeared. And on an issue like health care in particular, Gingrich said, such a rush made no sense. “Nancy Pelosi brought Obamacare to the floor in July, Obama signed it in March. That’s eight months,” Gingrich said. “The power to schedule is entirely controlled by the speaker.” Gingrich’s advice: “Pull it.” That advice was followed late Friday afternoon. The White House’s messaging, so far, appears to be meeting with some success in deflecting potential blame from the White House.

And if the repeal bill is defeated, the responsibility for failure has to land somewhere. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a vocal Trump ally, on Friday slammed the House Republican leadership for the debacle. “I dont understand how the leadership got to the point where they [designed] a bill that didnt have the votes,” Gingrich said in an interview. “I dont understand artificial deadlines that lead to defeat.” The rush to pass the bill — with less than three weeks from unveiling to a scheduled floor vote — was mystifying to the former speaker, who said he would never bring a bill to the floor as many votes short as AHCA appeared.

Skoda’s first electrified car is set to be a Superb plug-in hybrid, which is due to go on sale in 2019. However, Strube confirmed that the first all-electric car wouldn't be far behind, suggesting an on-sale date of 2020 or 2021. “We wont be the first brand in the group to have an MEB car on sale, but we will be fast followers and at the forefront when compared to our competition.” The VW Group’s electric car plans have accelerated significantly in the wake of the Dieselgate scandal, leading to last year’s unveiling of the ID , which has the dimensions of a Golf and the interior space of a Passat . The group has targeted a million electric car sales by 2020. Strube didnt elaborate on what size or style of car the concept would be, but the new image and previous reports suggest that it will have an SUV bodystyle. Sister brand Volkswagen is also tipped to take an all-electric ID SUV to Shanghai . Read more Geneva motor show news Geneva motor show - the 14 cars you must see

Apple came out with a flurry of announcementsunveiling a cheaper 9.7-inch iPad, more storage in the iPad mini 4, a new (Product) Red iPhone, a Snapchat-like app called Clips, and new Apple Watch bands. iPads It has an updated version of its iPad tablet with a brighter screen, available to order from Friday and with a US$329 (RM1,457.31) starting price that is the lowest ever for a full-sized tablet from Apple. Consumers can either get an iPad Mini, the new 9.7-inch iPad, or the iPad Pro in 9.7-inch or 12.9-inch varieties. The new 9.7-inch iPad is a bit thicker than the iPad Air 2 — about the size of the original iPad Air — but it has a much cheaper price tag, starting at US$329 (RM1,457.31) for 32GB of storage. That tablet is powered by Apple's fast A9 chip — the same one that's in the iPhone 6s — but it lacks the special screen on the iPad Pro, including its True Tone display and wide colour display.

KUALA LUMPUR: Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) is in talks with various parties overseas, including China National Cereals, Oils and Foodstuffs Corp (Cofco), to expand its downstream business overseas. “Cofco is one of the potential parties that we want to work with but there are a few, and not only in China. We also have (talks) in India, Pakistan and MENA (the Middle East and North Africa region) countries. We are looking for business partners,” group president and CEO Datuk Zakaria Arshad told reporters at the unveiling of the new Saji logo yesterday. Zakaria, who was commenting on talks about Cofco eyeing a strategic stake in FGV, said that any such sale is beyond his control as it is an open market. “Those who are interested in our shares, why not? They can always buy our shares particularly now that the price is very low. We are undervalued.

Instagram is looking to do more for advertisers than unveiling new filters, as the Facebook-owned service will soon allow users to use the picture sharing site to also book appointments with local businesses. The feature would allow the 8 million-plus businesses that use Instagram to attract customers to get more use out of social media network, according to Bloomberg . The new feature appears to be as straightforward as reserving a table for two at 7pm or squeezing in a trim at a local barber with simple interactions on the Instagram app - a boon to those looking for more customers than "likes." Instagram plans to roll out this feature in the coming months, with the service also reportedly giving some thought to adding reviews and other business-minded tools. Instagram head of business James Quarles says that 80% of the site's users follow a business of some kind, making it logical to have the service shift focus to local shops and not just Spring Break selfies and food pics.
