China suspends planned tariffs scheduled for Dec. 15 on some U.S. goods

China has suspended additional tariffs on some U.S. goods that were meant to be implemented on Dec. 15, the State Council's customs tariff commission said on Sunday, after the world's two largest economies agreed a "phase one" trade deal on Friday.

Remember the Wish Book?

Looks like it might be the last holiday season to buy gifts from (what's left of) Sears:"There's no new CEO. The company, which emerged from bankruptcy with 425 stores, will soon have less than half of those stores still open. Rather than holiday sales this year, it started going-out-of-business sales at 96 of its remaining stores the week after Thanksgiving. This suggests that sales and turnaround plans have not lived up to expectations." [Author: Tam]

Peter Yan propels his name into title talk with Urijah Faber knockout at UFC 245

Peter Yan said prior to UFC 245 that he would be happy to send Urijah Faber back into retirement. Faber returned to the Octagon with an impressive win over bantamweight upstart Ricky Simon earlier this year, but it was a much taller order to face the No. 4 ranked Yan. Faber was never out of the fight, but Yan was in control early, getting the better of the “California Kid” on the feet and fighting tough in the clinch, putting his strength and heavy elbows on display.
