The corrective action order issued on Thursday by the U.S. Transportation Department's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Administration, or PHMSA, is not regarded as a disciplinary enforcement sanction against the company, Plains All American Pipeline LP , officials said.

50 million gallons of water lost after California dam vandalized: newspaper
Some 50 million gallons of water were lost after an act of vandalism damaged an inflatable dam near San Francisco, the local Oakland Tribune newspaper reported on Friday. The loss comes as the state is in its fourth year of a devastating drought that has prompted Governor Jerry Brown to impose the state's first-ever mandatory cutbacks in urban water use, up to 36 percent in some communities. Alameda County Water District officials told the newspaper that the agency reported the incident, which caused the water to run into the San Francisco Bay, to police around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday.

Lehman leads Montgomerie, Henninger by one at Senior PGA
(Reuters) - Tom Lehman took advantage of some gentler conditions late in the day at the difficult French Lick Resort course to post a 67 and take a one-stroke lead at the halfway mark of the Senior PGA Championship on Friday. Lehman posted five birdies in the back nine after a challenging wind died down to reach four-under-par 140, one shot better than defending champion Colin Montgomerie of Scotland (69) and American Brian Henninger (67) at French Lick, Indiana. Another stroke back at 142 was Mexico's Esteban Toledo (68), with first-round leader Massy Kuramoto of Japan three shots off the pace after posting an even-par 72 for 143.

Yellen tone suggests choppiness for markets ahead

A street sign for Wall Street hangs in front of the New York Stock ExchangeU.S. stock investors have been enjoying an extended period of low volatility and steady gains, but with the Federal Reserve on track to raise interest rates this year and major indexes near records, the market could get a bit choppier in coming weeks. Fed Chair Janet Yellen on Friday said she expected the U.S. central bank to raise rates in 2015, though the process was expected to be gradual, with the timing of the first hike dependent on the strength of economic data. Some weak reports have pushed back the expected lift-off, but Yellen's words suggest the Fed is still headed to rate increases later this year.

Fed on track to hike rates as economic headwinds wane: Yellen

File photo of Federal Reserve Chair Yellen speaking at meeting of the FSOC at the Treasury Department in WashingtonBy Jonathan Spicer and Michael Flaherty PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Reuters) - Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen was clearer than ever on Friday that the central bank was poised to raise interest rates this year, as the U.S. economy was set to bounce back from an early-year slump and as headwinds at home and abroad waned. Yellen spoke amid growing concern at the Fed about volatility in financial markets once it begins to raise rates, and a desire to begin coaxing skeptical investors toward accepting the inevitable: that a 6-1/2-year stretch of near-zero interest rates would soon end. In a speech to a business group in Providence, Rhode Island, Yellen said she expected the world's largest economy to strengthen after a slowdown due to "transitory factors" in recent months, and noted that some of the weakness might be due to "statistical noise." The confident tone suggested the Fed wants to set the stage as early as possible for its first rate rise in nearly a decade, with Yellen stressing that monetary policy must get out ahead of an economy whose future looks bright.

A recalled Chevy Cobalt ignition switch is seen at Raymond Chevrolet in AntiochWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Justice Department investigators have identified criminal wrongdoing in General Motors Co's failure to disclose a defective ignition switch, and they are negotiating what is expected to be a record penalty, the New York Times reported on Friday.

Exclusive: Altice seeks financing for Time Warner Cable bid: sources

Time Warner Cable office is pictured in San DiegoBy Liana B. Baker and Claire Ruckin SAN FRANCISCO/LONDON (Reuters) - French telecommunications group Altice SA is talking to several banks about raising debt for a potential bid for Time Warner Cable Inc, the second-largest U.S. cable operator, according to people familiar with the matter. The talks are an important step for Altice in putting together a bid for Time Warner Cable, which is also being courted by Charter Communications Inc after Comcast Corp abandoned its $45.2 billion offer for Time Warner Cable last month over U.S. antitrust concerns. Altice is in discussions with banks including JPMorgan Chase & Co, Nomura Co Ltd, BNP Paribas SA, Societe Generale, Barclays Plc and Royal Bank of Canada about a financing package to support a proposed acquisition, the people said.
