Dear Reader,

To continue championing open source projects and innovators in the
international forum, O'Reilly Media has planned its first European Open
Source Convention (EuroOSCON), to be held at the Hotel Krasnapolsky in
Amsterdam on October 17-20, 2005.

Widespread adoption by European governments and organizations has signaled
strong support for open source technologies, and with your participation,
we're hoping to make EuroOSCON one of the most informative and inspiring
"gathering of the tribes" on the continent. This exciting new endeavor
targets the specific needs of European developers, programmers, and
systems and network administrators, helping them to deliver the benefits
of open source technology, in all its variations, to their companies and
organizations. By highlighting emerging technologies, the convention hopes
to evangelize the newest and most promising applications and developments
to the widest possible audience.

The program committee has scheduled a stellar lineup of tutorials,
sessions, panel discussions, and on-stage conversations focused on all
things open source with tracks on business, Linux, Java, PHP, Python,
Perl, databases, security, and emerging topics, all featuring some of the
brightest stars in open source. Naturally, EuroOSCON will also feature
entertaining evening events, plenty of opportunities for informal
networking, and an exhibit hall filled with intriguing cutting-edge

NEW YORK - Business, technology and wealth news:

Vioxx Jury Finds Merck Liable
A jury ruled today against Merck on all major counts in the first trial relating to its withdrawn painkiller Vioxx, awarding a Texas widow $253.4 million in damages. The verdict is a blow to the once well-regarded drug giant, whose shares immediately plunged as much as 8%, trading nearly 25 million shares in the hour after the verdict. Merck lawyers promptly said they would appeal the verdict.

Oil Prices Climb Nearly $2
Oil prices rose more than $2 per barrel on Friday, bouncing back from a dip earlier this week as markets reacted to a fire at a massive refining complex in Venezuela and developments in Ecuador, where protesters had forced a halt to production. News of explosions in the Jordanian Red Sea port of Aqaba and Israel also buttressed bullish sentiment.

Northwest Mechanics Near Strike Deadline
With a midnight strike deadline creeping closer, Northwest Airlines and its mechanics kept talking even as the union said little progress was being made. Northwest, which says it is losing about $4 million per day, wants its mechanics, cleaners and custodians to take a 25% pay cut. It also wants the right to lay off another 2,000 so it can send more of their work to outside vendors. Northwest has already slashed their ranks from 8,390 in 2002 to 4,427 now.

Qwest Union Sets Contract Vote Deadline

CWA District 7 officials are expected to begin meeting with local leaders across a 13-state region to discuss the terms of the contract, which calls for a 7.5% pay hike over three years, an eight-hour cap on mandatory overtime and some changes to health care benefits.

Disney Investigates Alleged Labor Abuses
The Walt Disney Co. said Friday it has hired an auditor to investigate claims that its Chinese contractors pay workers below minimum wage, demand excessive overtime and cheat labor monitors by faking pay slips.
