Boeing profits are up after a record year of commercial aircraft ordersUS aerospace giant Boeing Wednesday reported higher quarterly profits and forecast another increase in commercial plane deliveries in 2015 thanks to strong demand from airlines. The strong earnings came on the heels of a Boeing announcement in December that it delivered a record 723 jets, surpassing a previous record of 648, on rising demand from newer airlines in emerging markets and more seasoned companies replacing their fleets. Boeing projects commercial deliveries will rise to 750-755 in 2015. Boeing has invested heavily in the 787 "Dreamliner" and other models that employ light-weight components that demand less fuel.

By Tom Miles GENEVA (Reuters) - Israel and the Palestinians have failed to adequately investigate the full range of apparent human rights violations committed during the Gaza war last summer, the U.N. human rights chief said in a report seen by Reuters on Wednesday. Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein catalogued abuses blamed on both sides, including Israeli shelling of hospitals, of schools housing displaced people and of a group of children playing hide-and-seek on a beach. He cited witness reports of Israeli soldiers firing on civilians with white flags as they fled an area where a 16-year-old girl in a wheelchair had been killed by shelling, and the shooting of an ambulance driver as he went to evacuate a child. After an initial examination of over 100 incidents, Israel's Military Advocate General (MAG) opened 13 criminal investigations but closed nine cases, said Zeid, whose document is to be presented to the U.N. Human Rights Council in March.

The United States Federal Reserve Board building is shown in WashingtonBy Michael Flaherty and Howard Schneider WASHINGTON,(Reuters) - The Federal Reserve on Wednesday repeated that it will remain "patient" in deciding when to raise interest rates, and said the U.S. economy is on track despite turmoil in other markets around the world. "The committee judges that it can be patient in beginning to normalize the stance of monetary policy," the Fed's policy statement said. The Fed acknowledged that inflation had declined further below its longer-run objective and that market-based inflation measures had fallen substantially - a more negative assessment of inflation pressures than in December. Some Fed officials and economists have indicated a rate hike, which would be the first in nearly a decade, is more likely to occur between June and September.
