A major international crime ring that traded heroin, stolen cars and computer chips was broken Thursday with the arrest of 27 alleged group members in the Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Francisco, New York and Washington areas, according to Justice Department and FBI officials. An 18-month federal probe, code named Bytes Dust, linked those arrested to armed robberies of high-tech firms across the country, heroin trafficking and the shipment of stolen cars from the United States to China.

In 1991, the airport declined to carry out the detailed engineering analysis required by a Burbank city ordinance, saying the terminal "is probably substantially in compliance already" with earthquake building codes.

Taiwan is the most dynamic and prosperous yet relatively unknown economy in the world. It is a surprising economy. Taiwanese businesses have at least $37 billion and perhaps as much as $70 billion invested in the troubled countries of Southeast Asia, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia.
