    By Svea Herbst-Bayliss BOSTON (Reuters) - When Ethiopian Lelisa Desisa returns to the starting line of the Boston Marathon on Monday after winning the fabled footrace last year one of his fiercest challengers may be Kenyan Dennis Kimetto.

With his win all but forgotten in the face of the attack, Desisa returned to Boston last summer to donate his first place medal to the city. More »

  • Analysis - Fidelity biotech fund among worst performers in April sell-off Thu, Apr 17, 2014

    By Tim McLaughlin BOSTON (Reuters) - One of the biotechnology sector's worst two-week declines in the past decade has clobbered one of Fidelity Investments' hottest funds. The $9.4 billion (5.5 billion pounds) Fidelity Select Biotechnology Fund plunged 11.75 percent during the first 14 days of April. That put the fund near the bottom among nearly 3,800 U.S. mutual funds tracked by Lipper Inc. Only six funds performed worse, but they had less than $100 million in assets each. It's a jarring reversal of fortune for Fidelity portfolio manager Rajiv Kaul, whose three-year return has averaged 31 percent, beating his benchmark by a whopping 21 percentage points over that time.

  • Bain Capital raises $7.3 billion for flagship fund - sources Thu, Apr 17, 2014

    Bain Capital LLC has raised $7.3 billion (4.3 billion pounds) from investors and its dealmakers for its next flagship fund, people familiar with the matter said on Thursday, underscoring the favourable fundraising environment for established private equity firms. Bain employees committed another $800 million to the fund, dubbed Bain Capital Fund XI, bringing its final size to $7.3 billion, the sources said. The completion of fundraising by Bain is referred to in the private equity industry as "final close." Private equity funds reached final close on an aggregate $95 billion in the first quarter of 2014, the largest amount of capital raised since the first quarter of 2008, according to market research firm Preqin. Bain co-founder Mitt Romney's unsuccessful bid for U.S. president in 2012, just as Bain kicked off fundraising for Fund XI, put the private equity industry in an unprecedented public spotlight and fuelled debate about its practice of buying and selling companies.

  • Can Monitoring Wikipedia Hits Show How Many People Have the Flu?
    Can Monitoring Wikipedia Hits Show How Many People Have the Flu? Thu, Apr 17, 2014

    Wikipedia has become one of the world's most powerful portals of information - so powerful, in fact, that it can even show us when people are ill. Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital have found that monitoring the site's traffic, which exceeds 500 million visitors a month, can indicate how many people have simply caught the flu. In the PLOS Computational Biology journal, published on 17 April, David McIver and John Brownstein have developed a model analysing the amount of traffic on influenza-related Wikipedia articles in real-time to estimate flu levels in the American population. McIver and Brownstein said this method produced information two weeks sooner than data released from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and 17% quicker than Google Flu Trends data.

  • Lamborghini helps give parent Audi a technical edge
    Lamborghini helps give parent Audi a technical edge Thu, Apr 17, 2014

    By Andreas Cremer BERLIN (Reuters) - Lamborghini is flaunting a technology-packed supercar at this week's Beijing auto show that will spice up its parent company Audi's own offerings just as the second-biggest luxury carmaker struggles to prove its technical prowess. Audi has little to show this year opposite BMW's new "i" series of electric cars or Mercedes' spate of redesigned models and company sources have said overhauls of the brand's top-selling A4 saloon and Q7 SUV will be delayed until 2015. Some analysts even say that, while German rivals are pushing new technologies and designs, Audi risks looking like a laggard in an industry where innovation is key. Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy-based Lamborghini has been prospering since being bought by Audi in 1998. More »

  • GM to seek court protection against ignition lawsuits
    GM to seek court protection against ignition lawsuits Wed, Apr 16, 2014

    GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation related to ignition claims until a judicial panel on multidistrict litigation decides on a motion to consolidate the case with other lawsuits and the bankruptcy court rules on whether the claims violate GM's 2009 bankruptcy sale order. The company earlier filed a similar motion with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California seeking a stay on pending litigation. The defect has been linked to the deaths of at least 13 people and the recall of 2.6 million GM vehicles. More »
