  • Puerto Rico seeks protection of federal bankruptcy code

    Puerto Rico officials turn to US Congress seeking to be included under federal bankruptcy code

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Puerto Rican officials sought Thursday to convince U.S. legislators that the island's financially struggling public corporations should be allowed to restructure their debt under the federal bankruptcy code.

    The push comes after a federal judge ruled that a local debt-restructuring law pushed through last year by Puerto Rico's governor was unconstitutional.

    Melba Acosta, president of Puerto Rico's Government Development Bank, was among those who testified before a U.S. House Judiciary Committee hearing in Washington.

    "The fiscal and economic situation in Puerto Rico has reached a critical moment," she said. "If the public corporations default on their obligations and there is no clear legal regime, creditors may attempt to engage in a race to the courthouse."

    Puerto Rico's delegate to Congress, Pedro Pierluisi, has filed a bill seeking to allow the island's

  • The 4 Embers of the Entrepreneurial Fire

    The difference between a Silicon Valley icon and the employee next door isn’t funding -- most of the time it isn’t even the idea -- it’s the entrepreneurial fire within.

    Yet, more often than not, the entrepreneurial flame is extinguished just as quickly as it was lit. So how do you feed the fire?

    The list of advice one can get online is endless. However, there are some crucial, fundamental words of wisdom. While these cornerstones can be hard to live by, and even harder to remain steadfast to, they are what makes entrepreneurs successful.

    1. Execute

    Thinking should help drive, not hinder, action. Don't think too much. Don't plan too much. Just execute.

    Entrepreneurs and startup founders tend to get lost in their own heads, especially in the initial phase of the business. Legitimate questions end up freezing founders and plaguing them with self-doubt.

  • Tracks reopen where oil train derailed in West Virginia

    Tracks reopen where oil train derailed in southern West Virginia; cause remains undetermined

    MOUNT CARBON, W.Va. (AP) -- A rail line has reopened in southern West Virginia where an oil train derailed earlier this month.

    A statement from multiple agencies responding to the fiery derailment said crews restored the tracks and reopened the line for commerce Thursday afternoon. Cleanup activities continue at the site in Mount Carbon.

    Investigators have not determined what caused 27 of the CSX train's 109 cars to go off the tracks during a Feb. 16 snowstorm.

    The overturned cars have been moved to a rail yard. The statement says about 172,000 gallons of crude oil recovered from the tank cars were expected to be transferred starting Thursday to other tank cars for transport elsewhere.

    And about 97,000 gallons of an oil-water mix have been recovered from containment trenches near the Kanawha River.
