Iran says assisting ailing 'foreign tanker'

an hour ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
Iran's foreign ministry spokesman has said that the Islamic republic was assisting a "foreign tanker that had encountered a technical problem" in the Gulf after receiving a distress call. "According to international regulations... Iranian forces approached it and using a tugboat brought it into Iranian waters for necessary repairs," Abbas Mousavi said on Tuesday according to an official government Twitter account. The spokesman added that further details would be released later. Earlier TankerTrackers reported that the Panamanian-flagged tanker Riah, used in the strategic Strait of Hormuz "for fuelling other vessels" had crossed into Iranian waters on July 14 "for the first time as she slowed down". According to the online oil shipment tracking service, at that point the tanker's automatic identification system stopped sending signals.

US withholds cash from UN Population Fund over China abortions

an hour ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
The United States has said it will again withhold contributions to the U N Population Fund due to its work with China, which controls family size, as the agency accused Washington of jeopardizing women's health. It marked the third straight year that the United States has refused to fund the U N body as President Donald Trump's administration seeks to combat abortion, a pivotal issue for his evangelical Christian base. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo determined that "China's family planning policies still involve the use of coercive abortion and involuntary sterilization practices," conditions that under U S law require an end to funding, a State Department spokeswoman said on Tuesday. She said the U N Population Fund's public documents state that "it partners on family planning with the Chinese government agency responsible for these coercive policies." The agency, known as UNFPA, disputed the finding, saying that it opposes coercive policies and that the United States never visited ....

Partial lunar eclipse graces the sky

an hour ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
India on early Wednesday witnessed a partial lunar eclipse (ardh chandra grahan as it is called in Hindi) for few hours.The partial lunar eclipse, which is said to be the last of 2019, started at around 1.31 am and will be ending before dawn on Wednesday. The eclipse gradually grew and was at its peak at 3 am and it exactly seemed as if a chunk of the Moon has been bitten off.A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow. This occurs only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned, with Earth between the other two.A lunar eclipse can occur only on the night of a full moon. The type and length of a lunar eclipse depend on the Moon's proximity to either node of its orbit.During a partial lunar eclipse, the Earth's shadow passes only through a part of the Moon, resulting in a large dark spot that makes it seem as though a chunk of the Moon has been bitten off.Apart from India, the eclipse was witnessed in regions of Africa, ....

Temperatures hit a record 69.8 degrees Fahrenheit in Alert, the northernmost permanently inhabited spot on the planet less than 600 miles from the North Pole, the Canadian meteorology service has said. "It's quite phenomenal as a statistic, it's just one example among hundreds and hundreds of other records established by global warming," Armel Castellan, a meteorologist at the Canadian environment ministry told AFP on Tuesday. The temperature -- 21 degrees on the Celsius scale -- was recorded on Sunday at Alert, a permanent military base on the 82nd parallel which intercepts Russian communications and which has been home to a weather station since 1950.

Such highs so far north are "completely staggering," he said, noting that "for a week and a half we have had much higher temperatures than usual."

Senators press Facebook on 'trust' in hearing on digital currency

4 hours ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
US senators Tuesday questioned whether Facebook can be trusted with a massive financial responsibility at the first public hearing on its plan for a global digital currency called Libra. The lawmakers added to criticism of the plan unveiled by Facebook last month with two dozen partners on the digital coin, touted as a way to lower costs and facilitate cross-border money transfers. David Marcus, Facebook's executive heading the digital coin effort, defended the plan during more than two hours at a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Libra, pledging to comply with all regulations to thwart money laundering and criminal activity. Yet several senators warned of the risks of the plan and questioned whether Facebook can be trusted after a wave of missteps on privacy and data protection. "Facebook might not intend to be dangerous but surely they don't respect the power of the technologies they are playing with," said Senator Sherrod Brown, an Ohio Democrat.

Pompeo to take up immigration, Iran on Latin America tour

5 hours ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will press US efforts to curb immigration and counter Iran during a four-nation tour of Latin America, the State Department said Tuesday. Pompeo on Sunday will stop in both Mexico and El Salvador as President Donald Trump takes controversial measures to deter and remove mostly Central American migrants who are seeking safety in the United States. Under a new policy, the Trump administration is declaring ineligible for asylum most migrants who cross the US southern border through Mexico. Under threat of US tariffs, Mexico last month agreed to take in migrants from violence-riven Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador as the United States processes their claims. But Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard, who negotiated last month's accord and will meet Pompeo in Mexico City, has voiced disagreement with the latest US moves, rejecting efforts to limit refuge for people who fear for their lives. A State Department official said that Pompeo would seek to step ...

'Game of Thrones' breaks record with 32 Emmy nominations

5 hours ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
The divisive final season of "Game of Thrones" smashed the record for most Primetime Emmy nominations by a drama series in a single year, earning a whopping 32 nods Tuesday. HBO's fantasy epic enraged fans with its bumpy conclusion but still trounced the competition to strengthen its iron grip on the small-screen equivalent of the Oscars. "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" -- Amazon's story of a 1950s housewife-turned-stand up comic -- was a distant second on 20 nominations. "Thrones" is the most decorated fictional show in the awards' seven-decade history, and now has 161 nominations overall -- including 47 wins. "For those who will be adding 2019 to their long list of nominations and or wins from other years -- it never gets old!" said Television Academy chairman and CEO Frank Scherma. The show about families vying for the Iron Throne broke a 25-year nominations record for a drama series in a single year previously held by "NYPD Blue," which earned 27 nods in 1994.

Report of US nukes in Belgium stirs controversy

2 hours ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
Belgian opposition politicians have demanded answers from the government after a document published online inadvertently drew attention to US nuclear weapons deployed in the country. A draft report for the NATO parliamentary assembly's defence and security committee seen by AFP gave details of six air bases in Europe and Turkey where it said the US stores 150 nuclear weapons, specifically B-61 gravity bombs. The news comes amid fears of a new nuclear arms race in Europe, as a landmark Cold War treaty between Moscow and Washington is on the brink of collapse. Green lawmaker Samuel Cogolati said on Tuesday that the report confirmed the "open secret" that US nuclear weapons were stationed at the Kleine-Brogel air base in northern Belgium. "We demand a fully transparent debate -- we must stop this lying and put an end to this hypocrisy," he told AFP. A section of the draft report by Canadian senator Joseph Day, refers to a total of "approximately 150 nuclear weapons" stored at .....
                 

US not selling F-35 to Turkey: Trump

3 hours ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
President Donald Trump has announced that the US would not sell the F-35 fighter jets to Turkey because of the latter's decision to purchase the S-400 missile defense system from Russia. The decision by the Trump Administration can be an indication of the things to come for New Delhi as India has also signed up with Russia to buy the S-400 missile defense system from Russia against the advice of the US. Trump said it was not fair that when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan "really wanted" to buy the Patriot surface-to-air missile system, the Obama administration did not sell it. "We have a situation where Turkey is very good with us, very good. And we are now telling Turkey that because you have really been forced to buy another missile system, we're not going to sell you the F-35 fighter jets," Trump told reporters during a cabinet meeting at the White House on Tuesday. As per the current US laws, any country purchasing a major defence equipment from Russia could be subject to ....

Sudan's key protest group is opposed to giving the military "absolute immunity" against prosecution for violence against demonstrators, a spokesman said, as the two sides held talks on a power sharing deal. "We refuse absolute immunity that the military rulers have asked for," Ismail al-Taj, a spokesman for the Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) protest group told reporters in Khartoum. His comments came just before the ruling generals and protest leaders sat down to fine tune the landmark deal agreed earlier this month after mediation by African Union and Ethiopian mediators. The deal, which is yet to be formally signed, aims to establish a transitional governing body to install a civilian administration for a period of just over three years. Taj said the military council, which has ruled since the ouster in April of veteran president Omar al-Bashir, is demanding "absolute immunity" from prosecution -- which did not appear in the landmark deal.

Business / Business Standard/ General News  
The United States has banned visits by Myanmar's army chief and three other top officers due to their role in the "ethnic cleansing" of the Rohingya minority, urging accountability for their brutal campaign. The State Department said on Tuesday it took action against army chief Min Aung Hlaing and the others after finding credible evidence they were involved in the violence two years ago that led about 740,000 Rohingya to flee across the border to Bangladesh. "With this announcement, the United States is the first government to publicly take action with respect to the most senior leadership of the Burmese military," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said. "We remain concerned that the Burmese government has taken no actions to hold accountable those responsible for human rights violations and abuses, and there are continued reports of the Burmese military committing human rights violations and abuses throughout the country," he said in a statement.
