    Saturday, January 30, 2010 The US Department of Defense has notified Congress of a potential arms sale to Taiwan, with a value of $6 billion, that was first pledged by the Bush administration. The deal, that would include helicopters and anti-missile defences, angered China, who stated that the move would “seriously damage” US–China relations, as Beijing considers the island to be a break-away province of China, having split away after civil war in 1949.

    Crash data suggests driver error in Toyota accidents

    Wednesday, July 14, 2010 According to The Wall Street Journal, the U.S. Department of Transportation has analyzed data from the vehicles involved in accidents caused by sudden acceleration, which led to Toyota, the world’s top automaker, recalling a large number of automobiles.
