File photo of General Motors logo outside its headquarters at the Renaissance Center in DetroitBy Nick Carey and Bernie Woodall FOX LAKE Ill. (Reuters) - The news about deadly crashes linked to a faulty ignition switch, followed by wave upon wave of recalls, did not bode well for General Motors dealers earlier this year. It conjured visions of worried, frustrated drivers pouring onto lots like Raymond Chevrolet, outside of Chicago. Although the script is not what the dealership would have written, GM is delivering sales and service prospects to her door. GM as a whole posted a 2.5 percent increase in sales in the first half of the year, just a step behind the industry average of 4.3 percent.

Euro, shares sag as Ukraine woes hit German confidence

People walk past an electronic information board at the London Stock Exchange in the City of LondonBy Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Signs that tensions between the West and Russia are starting to hurt confidence in Europe's dominant economy Germany left the euro near an eight-month low on Friday and lifted the region's government bonds. Germany's Ifo survey revealed a hefty fall in business confidence over the last few weeks, prompting concerns the region's growth engine and driver of its recovery could be stuttering. "Companies were also less optimistic about future business developments." The euro fell back towards Thursday's eight-month low of 1.34 and bonds from Germany to Greece made ground as traders wagered the downbeat data upped the likelihood the European Central Bank will need to provide the economy with further support. Some encouraging U.S. company earnings, reassuring data from China, and still record-low global borrowing costs have persuaded investors to look past the rise in tensions in Ukraine and Gaza this week.

Centers for Disease Control Biotechnology Core Facility (Building 23) is shown in AtlantaThe U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday lifted a moratorium on transfers of inactivated materials from its clinical tuberculosis laboratory, after a bioterror lab mishap last month potentially exposed workers to live anthrax, prompting the halt of transfers from other high-containment labs. The tuberculosis lab, which last year processed more than 500 specimens from around the United States, is the first of the CDC's high-containment labs to be cleared to resume transfers of biological materials. Its other such labs remain on hold, the CDC said. The CDC also announced on Thursday the members of a new panel of independent experts who will advise CDC's director, Dr. Thomas Frieden, on safety issues and corrective actions for the agency's labs.

Nigeria may have no polio cases next year, says Bill Gates

Microsoft technology advisor Bill Gates leaves after the second day of the Allen and Co. media conference in Sun Valley, IdahoBy Edmund Blair NAIROBI (Reuters) - Nigeria could cut the number of polio cases to zero next year and be declared free of the disease in 2018 even though a national eradication campaign has had to contend with an insurgency in the north, Bill Gates told Reuters. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation supports the global initiative to wipe out polio, which includes a campaign in Nigeria, one of three nations where the crippling virus is still endemic. "We have got all the challenges up in northern Nigeria, the violence from Boko Haram, and the distraction of an upcoming election," Gates said in a telephone interview, referring to an Islamist rebel group that has in the past targeted vaccination workers, and to Nigeria's national vote next year. ?We hope by the end of next year we?d be at zero." He added that if there were no more cases for three years after that, Nigeria could be certified clear in 2018.
