At least seven Chinese companies the Ecuadorean government hired for public works projects in the construction, mining, telecommunications, and oil exploitation sectors made payments to companies the Ecuadorean Internal Revenue Service (SRI, in Spanish) considers shell corporations. According to Jorge Rodríguez, an Ecuadorean economist and a representative of the country’s National Anti-corruption Commission, the use of shell corporations is long-standing in Ecuador. He said these companies are usually hired to launder money, simulate expenses, artificially lower their earnings, and pay kickbacks to authorities for acts of corruption. “The problem started in the 1990s, when banks tried to move the sucre and the dollar, so businessmen built shell corporations in the names of their drivers or assistants to launder cash and gain advantages over the exchange rates.

We have a while to wait before we can finally get our hands on Xbox Project Scarlett, and Microsoft is remaining pretty tight-lipped on details about its next-generation hardware. Will there be some new Xbox IPs to accompany it? While Microsoft may not be answering these questions quite yet, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has spilled some details on the company's main aims for Xbox Project Scarlett during an interview with Gamespot. We already know that Xbox Project Scarlett will boast a custom-designed processor from AMD making use of Zen 2 CPU and Navi GPU architectures, and will be capable of running games at 120Hz frame rates, at potential 8K resolutions – while also showcasing fancy real-time ray tracing tech. So, aiming to have all games run at 60 FPS isn't out of the question.

MacStadium, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud solutions for Apple Mac infrastructure, today announced ‘Orka’ (Orchestration with Kubernetes on Apple), a new virtualization layer for Mac build infrastructure based on Docker and Kubernetes technology. Orka enables users to apply native Kubernetes commands for macOS virtual machines (VMs) on genuine Apple hardware. While Kubernetes and Docker are not new to full stack developers, a solution like this has not existed in the Apple ecosystem before. “The reality is that most enterprises need to develop applications for Apple platforms, but these enterprises prefer to use nimble, software-defined build environments,” said Greg McGraw, chief executive officer at MacStadium. “With Orka, MacStadium’s flagship orchestration platform, developers and DevOps teams now have access to a software-defined Mac cloud experience that treats infrastructure-as-code, similar to what they are accustomed to using everywhere else.”. With Orka, Apple OS development teams can use container technology features in a Mac cloud the same way they build on other cloud platforms like AWS, Azure or GCP. As part of its initial release, Orka will ship with a plugin for Jenkins, an open source automation server that enables developers around the world to reliably build, test and deploy their software using continuous integration and continuous delivery techniques.
Racing towards insolvency, the solar firm received a big buyout from Elon Musk and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock. And in the years since the 2016 rescue plan, investors have sort of forgotten about SolarCity and Tesla’s solar operations. Heck, Tesla management didn’t even mention “solar” on its last conference call. But thanks to a series of tweets from Musk, TSLA and its solar plans are once back into the spotlight. On the surface, that was a great plan. When TSLA picked up SolarCity (which had Musk as its chairman) back in 2016 for $2.6 billion, the firm was the top solar installer. Thanks to its constant need for creative funding to get those panels into consumers’ hands, rising competition from smaller installers like Sunrun (NASDAQ:RUN) and Vivint Solar (NYSE:VSLR), as well as dwindling subsidies for solar panels, SolarCity hit hard times.
