Big Brazilian gold refiner delisted amid Amazon mining probe

One of Brazil’s biggest gold refiners, which processes gold suspected of being mined illegally in the Amazon rainforest, has been stripped of an important industry seal of approval that global manufacturers from Apple to Tesla rely on to root out abuses in their supply chains. An investigation by The Associated Press in January revealed how Sao Paulo-based Marsam shares ownership links and processes gold on behalf of an intermediary accused by Brazilian prosecutors of buying tarnished gold from Indigenous territories and other protected areas. With a lawsuit underway against that partner, Marsam this month was quietly removed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative from a public list of smelters and refiners deemed to follow best sourcing practices.

Barges grounded by low water halt Mississippi River traffic

The unusually low water level in the lower Mississippi River is causing barges to get stuck in the mud and sand. That's disrupting river travel for shippers, recreational boaters and even passengers on a cruise line. The lack of rainfall in recent weeks has left the Mississippi River approaching record low levels in areas from Missouri south through Louisiana. The U.S. Coast Guard says at least eight grounding of barges have been reported in the past week, despite low-water restrictions on barge loads. The National Weather Service says nearly all of the Mississippi River basin, from Minnesota through Louisiana, has seen below-normal rainfall over the past 30 days. Read more


Twitter under Musk? Most of the plans are a mystery

A super app called X? A bot-free free speech haven? These are some of Elon Musk’s mysterious plans for Twitter, now that he may be moving toward buying the company after all. After months of squabbling over the fate of their bombshell $44 billion deal, the billionaire and the bird app are essentially back to square one — if a bit worse for wear as trust and goodwill has seemed to erode on both sides.

'Lindeville' is where Ashley McBryde's characters come alive

Welcome to Lindeville, a fictional town for quirky small-town characters created by Ashley McBryde and her songwriting buddies. Her new album “Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville” is a character-driven concept album filled with detail-rich places, people and storylines. McBryde said the town and it's inhabitants might not be real, but they look a lot like every small town. She said that the collaborative project with other songwriters gave them all a different level of creative freedom. The tattooed singer has earned a reputation as a creative risk-taker in country music and on “Lindeville,” she encouraged everyone on the project to take the songs wherever they needed to go.

Mattingly wins his last game as Marlins manager, tops Braves

Don Mattingly went out as a winner in his final game as Miami’s manager when rookie Peyton Burdick homered and drove in four runs to lead the Marlins over the NL East champion Atlanta Braves 12-9. Matt Olson and Marcell Ozuna homered for the Braves, who finished 101-61 and have a bye into the Division Series next week. The 61-year-old Mattingly announced Sept. 25 he would not seek a new contract. Miami’s final 69-93 record surpassed its 2021 finish by two games. Mattingly finished his Marlins tenure 443-587, highlighted by a playoff berth in the 2020 pandemic-shortened season. Read more


'Scrubs' producer Eric Weinberg charged with sex assaults

Eric Weinberg, an executive producer and writer for the hit TV show “Scrubs” and many others, has been charged with sexually assaulting five women at photo shoots. Weinberg was arrested Tuesday and released on $5 million bond, days after he was charged with 18 felony counts ranging from rape to false imprisonment. An email to his agent seeking comment wasn’t immediately returned. On Wednesday, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said that between 2014 and 2019, Weinberg used his Hollywood influence to lure women to photo shoots where he attacked them. The DA also says there may be other alleged victims and the investigation continues. Read more
