Doctors and humanitarians on the ground in war-torn countries should have more say in global breastfeeding policies, writes Gayle Tzemach Lemmon. [Source]
Christopher Nolan's $150 million film "Dunkirk" may be the first that many Americans have heard about "Operation Dynamo," the beachfront rescue in 1940 of 338,000 Allied troops trapped between Hitler's army and the sea. But what most people probably don't realize is that a larger and faster maritime evacuation actually took place here in the States less than 16 years ago.
I first heard the silence late Tuesday night, while pecking at my phone, waiting for Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump to denounce President Donald Trump's latest comments on neo-Nazis after the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the death and mayhem that resulted.
I am no fan of President Donald Trump's reaction to the Charlottesville violence, which left one woman dead and many others injured. I said so Saturday on CNN and then again Tuesday night, after he unraveled Monday's wonderfully crafted statement in his press conference and reverted to his earlier misbegotten remarks.
U.S. dollar stores have not become collateral damage, as feared, in a price war among big retailers including Wal-Mart Stores Inc and Kroger Co , which has pushed down prices of key items such as eggs and laundry detergent.
Aug 18 - U.S. dollar stores have not become collateral damage, as feared, in a price war among big retailers including Wal-Mart Stores Inc and Kroger Co, which has pushed down prices of key items such as eggs and laundry detergent.
NEW DELHI, Aug 18 (Reuters) - India's biggest airline, IndiGo, has been forced to ground 13 planes and cancel 84 flights because of issues with its Pratt and Whitney made engines on its Airbus A320 neo aircraft, Indian TV channels reported on Friday.
Charlottesville is where I learned what history is and isn't, and who I wanted to become. I posed for graduation and wedding photos in the shadow of the Rotunda at the University of Virginia, elated to be starting a new life pursuing further post-graduate study and building a family. It's a campus and a town that will always feel a bit like home to me.
Criticized by conservatives and liberals, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle and virtually everyone in between, President Donald Trump is finding few defenders of his own renewed defense of white nationalist protesters who turned violent on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.
President Donald Trump's combative defense of far-right protesters packs a nausea-inducing punch when you listen to it in Europe -- in territories that were occupied and ruled by a fascist regime. Territories that were liberated only when free people -- including Americans -- fought the Nazis forcefully and violently.
America -- why are you surprised? The Donald Trump who on Saturday and again on Tuesday drew an equivalency between the "very fine people" (his words) among those protesting with neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, and those that opposed this event as an affront to America's foundations is the same Donald Trump millions of people supported and the electoral college put in the White House.
All our hearts -- and most of America's news crews -- have been in Charlottesville, Virginia this week. It's hard to quite fathom the darkness that comes from seeing neo-Nazis marching in a college town, a counterprotester brutally killed and the US President blaming "many sides" for bigotry and violence.
One step forward, two steps back? On Monday, in response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, President Donald Trump denounced "criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans." In a press briefing from the White House, Trump said that "racism is evil."
Reuters Health - Murders climbed 22 percent in Florida in the decade after the state enacted its `Stand Your Groundâ€™ self-defense law, even after accounting for the expected spike in justifiable homicides, a new study suggests.
The images of mayhem in Charlottesville led the main national newscast on Sunday night in the Netherlands -- a country that, like much of Europe and the rest of the world, has a keen interest in what goes on in the United States.
The roiling spectacle of racial violence that unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday leaving three people dead -- one killed when a car plowed into a crowd and two Virginia State Police officers who died in a helicopter crash -- represents the culmination of naked appeals by an American president and a major political party to the most shameful aspects of our nation's history.
DEPOE BAY, Ore. (Reuters) - Oregon's Depoe Bay is preparing for the first total eclipse to traverse the continental United States in a century as if a natural disaster was bearing down on the small coastal city.
The North Korea crisis is deadly serious and President Donald Trump is pursuing a dangerous path, escalating tensions with his "fire and fury" and "locked and loaded" comments. His unpredictable behavior is being met with predictable criticism from the left.
Trump's "locked and loaded" standoff with North Korea has Americans in high anxiety, hair-pulling among White House officials may be stalling his agenda, Robert Mueller's Russia campaign-interference probe appears to be heating up with the recent FBI raid of President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Trump faces the lowest-ever approval ratings for a president at this time in his first term.
Upon leaving CNN studios in New York around lunchtime Wednesday after a busy few days providing on-air commentary on White House stories, I found myself walking behind a professionally attired young woman on 57th Street.
TOKYO, Aug 10 (Reuters) - Toshiba Corp's auditor gave an "adverse opinion" on the company's internal controls in an annual report filed on Thursday, showing the Japanese industrial conglomerate has a way to go before regaining the market's trust following a 2015 accounting scandal.
It was January 6, 1991. A group of US soldiers and I were listening on BBC as Saddam Hussein gave a speech to the Iraqi army. It was on a static-filled radio in our squadron's operation center in the middle of the desert, and we all knew we were about to go to war. The British interpreter paused with confusion as he tried to understand the phrase, and then he translated Saddam's idiomatic threat as best he could: "Iraqi soldiers, the battle in which you are locked today is the mother of all battles. ... Our rendezvous with victory is very near."
In Israeli politics, the old saying goes, you can be dead or dead and buried. There are rarely second acts. But then there is Benjamin Netanyahu -- a man who has survived defeat, scandal and now, in his fourth term, stands to become the longest-serving Israeli Prime Minister in Israel's short history. In doing so he would surpass the towering figure of David Ben-Gurion.
Reuters Health - While policymakers continue to block supervised injection sites in the U.S., a nonprofit secretly opened an unlicensed five-booth facility where visitors shoot up heroin and other drugs under the watchful eye of trained staff.
The escalating verbal exchange between the erratic, unpredictable and verbally excessive North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and the erratic, unpredictable and verbally excessive US President Donald Trump is bringing the Korean peninsula deeper into a crisis the Trump administration appears to have no real strategy to solve.
Today, President Trump promised North Korea a "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it continues to threaten the United States. His remark came on the heels of a news article that cited an intelligence assessment claiming Pyongyang had successfully miniaturized a nuclear warhead. Miniaturization is a critical step toward being able to mount such a device onto a missile -- so, if the report is true, it's certainly worthy of due concern by those charged with our national defense.
A decade after vicious election-related violence in Kenya left more than 1,000 dead and the country in shock, Kenyans were voting Tuesday in a hotly contested presidential election. Trust -- in politicians, in the integrity of the political system -- remains low. Fear -- that the vote will be compromised, that unscrupulous leaders will inflame the public -- runs high.
TOKYO (Reuters) - The auditor for Toshiba Corp is likely to sign off on the conglomerate's annual results while giving a thumbs down on the group's corporate governance during a series of crises, people with direct knowledge of the discussions said on Tuesday.
TOKYO (Reuters) - The auditor for Toshiba Corp is likely to sign off on the conglomerate's annual results while giving a thumbs down on the corporate governance behind a series of crises for the group, people with direct knowledge of the discussions said on Tuesday. PricewaterhouseCoopers Aarata LLC will give a "qualified opinion" endorsing Toshiba's finances in the financial statement for the year ended in March, the two sources told Reuters. That will end a limbo in which the auditor withhe
A vocal minority of Asian-Americans are collaborating with white conservative advocates to tear down affirmative action, perceiving it as a hindrance to greater Asian-American admission into colleges. And they're being recruited as the plaintiffs of choice for conservative lawsuits against elite educational institutions like Harvard.
Last month, when President Donald Trump was asked by The New York Times if special counsel Robert Mueller would be crossing a line if he started investigating the finances of Trump and his family, the President said, "I think that's a violation. Look, this is about Russia."
When I was a child, we had a next-door neighbor, an elderly woman. She spoke only to my mother, who was blonde, green-eyed and Scottish. When my dark-skinned father (who was from the Middle East, but often taken for Indian or Hispanic) would cross her path, she would stare stonily into the distance. It was awkward.
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Background checks related to U.S. firearm purchases suffered their deepest quarterly decline in over three years in July, suggesting a sales slump despite price discounts aimed at improving customer demand following President Donald Trump's election.
KABUL (Reuters) - Afghan security forces retook a district center in the eastern province of Paktia on Friday, following a sequence of fighting with Taliban insurgents that has seen control over a series of strongpoints change hands in recent days.
We are a long way from having a complete understanding of the facts in the Russia investigation. We also do not know what possible crimes, if any, special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation may uncover. But, as in baseball, where a scorecard is needed to keep track of the game, having an understanding of the crimes that might be in play as the evidence unfolds should help in navigating the issues that may lie ahead.
Conservatives busy defending the Trump administration's plans to reform the immigration system and delve into affirmative action policy need to understand something that simply won't change during the Trump era: Everything the administration proposes that even hints at race or ethnicity will receive heightened, and sometimes even unfair, scrutiny.
It was in the final years of the 1990s that British columnist David Aaronovitch experienced that inevitable moment that befalls all parents of small children. Watching a news program on the unprecedented spectacle of an American president facing impeachment over his lies about liaisons with a White House intern, he heard the presenter utter the phrase, "oral sex in the vestibule." Turning nervously to his adolescent daughter by his side, Aaronovitch felt an unexpected mixture of surprise and relief when he was met with the question, "Daddy, what's a vestibule?"
All too often, "A dream deferred is a dream denied." Langston Hughes challenged us with this reality through his poem, "Harlem," more than 60 years ago. Poets can speak truth in a time of struggle. Poets also can be prophets in verse.
President Trump is a defense lawyer's worst nightmare -- and a dream defendant for special counsel Robert Mueller. Revelations the President may have personally dictated a misleading statement given to The New York Times about his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer is the latest example why.
When I was a New York Police Department cop in East Flatbush in 2000, I once rushed into an apartment building with fellow officers on a call of an assault. We found a boy in the hallway under attack. He was crying, and bleeding from stab wounds inflicted by his mother's boyfriend. The boy ran into my arms. Our sergeant confronted his attacker. He could have shot the man. Instead, he fought him into submission.
Jeff Sessions' Department of Justice filed an amicus brief in a case before a federal appeals court, taking the position that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 does not prohibit employment "discrimination based on sexual orientation."
President Donald Trump has finally done it. He has turned his administration into a B-level reality show. A cross between "Celebrity Apprentice" and "Jersey Shore," the characters in this White House drama even have theatrical nicknames like "Mad Dog," or Secretary of Defense James Mattis, and "The Mooch," referencing Anthony Scaramucci, the newest director of communications.
"Philanthropy," Oscar Wilde once wrote, "seems to have become simply the refuge of people who wish to annoy their fellow-creatures." With a growing number of billionaires and other wealthy people pledging to give away large chunks of their fortunes to rid the world of diseases, illiteracy, poverty, global warming and much else, the rest of us are apt to be in for a good deal more bother in the future. However well-intentioned, their efforts usually require the objects of their concerns to change behavior in ways that often wind up doing little to solve the vast problems they are trying to address.
(Reuters Health) - Dr. Rebekah Gardner has to make a choice each time she sees a patient in her Rhode Island office: she can scroll computer screens and click boxes, or she can focus on the patient and take home the computer work.
In the end, nothing was more damaging to the Republican effort to repeal Obamacare than President Donald Trump himself. His performance in handling the first major legislative initiative of his administration was a complete failure of leadership. Had this been an episode of "The Apprentice," someone would be sitting around the boardroom table telling the commander in chief, "You're fired!"
The latest, last-ditch effort by Senate Republicans to overturn the Affordable Care Act -- the so-called "skinny repeal" -- gives Democrats a golden opportunity to begin redefining their party as a reliable champion of the bread-and-butter economic issues that working-class voters care about.
In my neighborhood in the 1960's, all my friends were Scouts. Mostly because it was fun -- weekend camping trips, swimming, canoeing, rock climbing, telling stories, laughing and singing songs around a campfire and learning new skills that resulted in earning merit badges.
(Reuters) - The biggest U.S. wildfire torched buildings and parched grassland forcing evacuations in eastern Montana while California firefighters gained ground on a massive blaze near Yosemite National Park on Monday, authorities said.
SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Asian stocks slipped on Monday as demand for riskier assets ebbed after recent strong gains, while the euro's near-two-year high on the European Central Bank's seeming lack of concern about its strength left the dollar languishing near a 13-month low.
The news about President Donald Trump and Russia just keeps on coming. After the President had to deal with the fallout from his son's controversial June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer, we keep learning that there were more and more people in the room. The meeting is beginning to feel like a clown car -- one more person keeps jumping out just when you think the vehicle is empty.
Many fans are shocked and heartbroken over the loss this week of Chester Bennington, the fierce lead singer for the rock band Linkin Park. Police say they are treating his death as a possible suicide, which would make the pain even harder to bear.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A wildfire in central California was contained enough on Saturday for authorities to consider allowing more people back to their houses, a day after evacuation orders were lifted for a gold rush era town that was previously threatened.
ZURICH (Reuters) - A European Medicines Agency (EMA) panel said on Friday it has recommended Roche's immunotherapy Tecentriq as a treatment for advanced bladder and lung cancer, setting the stage for European Commission approval this year.
Just before Donald Trump took office, I argued that our new President would likely follow the "authoritarian playbook," an approach toward governance that privileges executive power and makes the leader's personal goals and needs the focus of his public office. Now, six months later, those predictions have come true.
Sen. John McCain, 80, has been diagnosed with a primary glioblastoma, a type of brain tumor, Mayo Clinic doctors directly involved in the senator's care told CNN exclusively. The doctors spoke directly to CNN Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
After six months in office, our 45th President seems to be a most unhappy warrior. Yes, Donald Trump's face lights up when they bring big trucks to the White House, and he gets to sit behind the wheel. But for the most part he offers no more than a thumbs up or a few hand claps to indicate enthusiasm, and his eyes reflect the look of a man who would rather be anywhere else but Washington.
The second discussion in as many days between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 meeting over dinner in Hamburg was bound to give rise to a great deal of speculation.
DUFFEL, Belgium (Reuters) - A psychiatric hospital in Belgium is home to one of the world's largest collections of human brains, which researchers say could hold the key to developing new treatments for diseases such as psychosis, schizophrenia and severe depression.
Ann Coulter apparently thinks Delta is the "worst airline in America." Over the weekend and into Monday, she posted a series of angry tweets aimed at Delta Airlines, a flight attendant, and a fellow passenger after being asked to move from a seat with extra legroom that she had "carefully chosen in advance and booked."
President Donald Trump's personal lawyer let loose a verbal barrage of obscenities and threats against an unidentified person who had the temerity to suggest in an email that Marc Kasowitz should resign as the President's personal lawyer.
MEXICO CITY, July 14 (Reuters) - Mexican industry is exploring revising trade rules to ensure U.S. workers benefit from a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to address head-on U.S. President Donald Trump's biggest beef with the treaty.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 400 people, including doctors and nurses, have been charged with defrauding Medicare and other federal healthcare programs of $1.3 billion, with many accused of illegally distributing opioids and other narcotics, the Justice Department said on Thursday.
Why would Pope Francis, the leader of the world's estimated 1.2 billion Catholics, intervene in the case of Charlie Gard, an infant in the UK who suffers from an extremely rare form of mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome? Why has the Pope joined with the child's parents in disagreement with the UK government's decision to forbid Charlie Gard's transfer to the US for an experimental therapy and to order the termination of his life support? British law vests authority in the courts to determine "best interests" of the patient when there is a dispute such as this, making it quite different from the United States.
Donald Trump Jr. has become a prime target for the House and Senate intelligence committees, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and an army of journalists who are all investigating Russia's efforts to sway the 2016 election in his father's favor.
GAZA (Reuters) - British war surgeon David Nott was back in the Gaza Strip this week to share with local doctors specialist knowledge he has amassed from working in conflict and disaster zones over the past quarter-century.
When Donald Trump Jr. tweeted out the email exchange that led to his meeting with a Russian lawyer about potentially damaging information on Hillary Clinton in the summer of 2016, you could hear the silence among fellow Republicans.
The tidal wave of tens of thousands of "foreign fighters" that once flocked from around the Muslim world and beyond to ISIS' black banners has slowed to a trickle. Estimates cited by The Washington Post suggest that the flow of foreign recruits to ISIS had dropped from a high of 2,000 a month to 50 a month by last fall.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell surprised the White House and many Republicans last week when he floated the idea that his party might end up working with Democrats if they fail to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
BEIJING (Reuters) - Ailing Chinese Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo wants to go to either Germany or the United States for treatment and can be moved safely but it needs to happen soon, two foreign doctors who visited him said on Sunday.
After more than two hours of talks on Friday, Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin appeared to have made progress in bridging some of the issues dividing their countries. But it's far too soon to declare success in ending the hostility that has marked recent US-Russia relations.
LONDON, July 6 (Reuters) - The world's top medical technology companies are turning to robots to help with complex knee surgery, promising quicker procedures and better results in operations that often leave patients dissatisfied.
Here we are today, in Donald Trump's version of "modern day presidential": Random badly behaved men on the Internet suddenly find their juvenile online aliases thrust into the national spotlight, as "HanA**holeSolo" did this week when he conceded he had created the Trump v. CNN meme -- and it was further revealed that he was a regular purveyor of racist and anti-Semitic content on pro-Trump subreddits.
With two unpredictable leaders -- Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump -- and their propensity for risk-taking, there's no way to say with certainty what will result from Friday's bilateral summit meeting on the margins of the G-20 economic summit. We're sorely tempted to conclude that the meeting, like the "Seinfeld" episode in which George and Jerry try to sell a TV pilot episode for a show about nothing, will turn out much the same.
GENEVA (Reuters) - The population of Mosul has endured huge suffering in the war to take the northern Iraqi city back from Islamic State and trauma cases among civilians are sharply rising in the last stages of battle, Doctors without Borders (MSF) said on Wednesday.
Despite Donald Trump's tweet back in January, it has happened. The missile that North Korea test-launched on Independence Day was an intercontinental ballistic missile, according to US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. It could very probably reach Alaska.
ASTANA (Reuters) - Russia may deploy its military to police the borders of planned de-escalation zones in Syria within two to three weeks after finalizing an agreement with Turkey and Iran, Russian negotiator Alexander Lavrentyev said on Tuesday.
When it comes to geopolitical theater, no one can accuse the North Korean leadership of lacking a certain sense of timing. Kim Jong Un may have taken the best part of the last two weeks out of the public eye, but he's made some comeback.
(Reuters) - Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia X said on Tuesday a flight from Australia to Malaysia was diverted and forced to land in Brisbane because an engine was damaged during take-off by what was thought to be a bird strike.
TAMPA, Fla. (Reuters) - A Florida state court judge ruled on Monday that recent changes to the state's "stand your ground" law are unconstitutional, finding that legislators overstepped when making it easier for defendants to argue self-defense to obtain immunity for violent acts.
I'm a comedian. I know jokes. President Donald Trump's tweet of a doctored video was no joke. It was dangerously irresponsible. In the video -- defended by Trump's supporters as just good fun -- The President of the United States can be seen punching a person with a label digitally superimposed over his face that reads "CNN."
We need to talk. On that, both the United States and Russia can agree. And the opportunity of the G20 summit in Hamburg this weekend is ideal. It allows anything from a full, formal sit-down meeting to a staged informal encounter in which both sides invest minimal political capital. But don't get your hopes up.
We will remember 2017 as the year patriotism started to acquire a new vitality and force among Democrats -- and the year that the GOP lost control of its narrative. We have President Donald Trump to thank for both of these things.
Generosity, kindness and compassion are principles we ought to embrace, both as Americans and as human beings. President Donald Trump has urged Congress to send him a health care bill that reflects these values.
President Donald Trump is undermining his party's ability to succeed. The President, who has squandered five months of united government, has single-handedly made the entire legislative process more difficult for Republicans.
(Reuters) - Officials hope to reopen a portion of a major roadway and allow more residents to head home on Friday in central Arizona where firefighters have gained significant ground against a fierce, six-day-old wildfire that forced thousands to evacuate.
The news that a high-ranking Vatican official has been charged with sexual abuse is a reminder that the church's sex abuse crisis is not over â€” and that it has potential to affect the entire church, across so-called liberal or conservative lines, even to the top echelons of the church hierarchy.
When President Trump tapped out a tweet that sought to humiliate MSNBC journalist Mika Brzezinski, he inadvertently gave us another glimpse into his own character, and into the essence of sexism that women have battled across the ages.
(Reuters Health) - Roughly half of breastfed newborns in New York State hospitals are also given formula, though thereâ€™s wide variation in feeding practices suggesting that differing hospital policies contribute to the problem, researchers say.
This week marks the tenth anniversary of the iPhone. For hundreds of millions of us, this device -- just 4 ounces when introduced -- has come to dominate our lives. Now we can find seemingly any answer to anything with a few taps of the thumb and forefinger. Everything from dinner to a date is now just a click away, and you can procure both of those while simultaneously talking on a conference call -- and riding the train, of course.
We shouldn't forget about Rep. Greg Gianforte. The newest congressman's guilty plea this month in a Montana court on charges of misdemeanor assault -- resulting in sentence of no jail time -- and his $50,000 donation to a press freedom organization (Gianforte is worth north of $300 million) may satisfy the courts and even the reporter he victimized, but congressional representatives and the American people should not let him off so easily.
The contrast could not be more extreme: a loud, pushy, anti-intellectual President Donald Trump versus a soft-spoken, recessive, philosophical former president, Barack Obama. The difference has become especially glaring in recent days, with Trump repeatedly breaking the tradition of a new president refraining from dissing his predecessor.
US health care costs are out of sight, more than $10,000 per person per year, compared with around $5,000 per person in Canada, Germany and France. Obamacare expanded coverage without controlling costs. The Republican plan would ruthlessly and cruelly limit coverage without controlling costs.
MOSUL, Iraq (Reuters) - Iraqi forces on Tuesday pushed towards the river side of Mosul's Old City, their key target in the eight-month campaign to capture Islamic State's de-facto capital, and Iraq's prime minister predicted victory very soon.
SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China has launched five pilot zones to promote "green finance" and help pay for a war on pollution that is expected to cost at least 3 trillion yuan ($440 billion) a year, according to notices published by the central bank on Monday.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is facing a major test this week. Since revealing the details of the Republican health care plan, McConnell has watched as a number of important senators in his own party announced their concerns or opposition. Some, such as Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, have urged him to postpone the vote based on the assumption that, at this moment, it would not pass the upper chamber where the majority only has a slim 52 seats.
As President Trump prepares to welcome Prime Minister Modi of India and President Moon of South Korea to Washington, he should strongly consider clearly telling both of them that President Obama's Asia rebalance strategy is alive and well.
It's not every day that hospitals and insurers see eye to eye, but there is one thing we agree on -- the government must continue to help lower the cost of health care that millions of lower-income Americans receive.
BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian government will not allow its enemies to benefit from the creation of de-escalation zones in western Syria, the Syrian deputy foreign minister has said, ahead of international talks on the zones scheduled for early July in Kazakhstan.
As the Mad Hatter of the White House tweeted his response to Congress's questions on Thursday about the existence of audiotapes related to James B. Comey's firing as FBI director, he stayed true to character. "I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings," President Trump announced. But he also added that "with all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea..."
There has been much talk about whether President Donald Trump is considering firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller. In my view, this is just talk -- not so much because the President might not want to fire him, but because the rules governing the hiring and firing of the special counsel would make it very difficult for him to do so without triggering a congressional inquiry into whether he abused the power of his office.
PARIS (Reuters) - When President Emmanuel Macron reshuffled his cabinet after four ministers with judicial probes hanging over them said they were quitting, he snubbed well-known heavyweights to fill the posts.
LONDON (Reuters/IFR) - U.S. banks that have carved out a lucrative niche financing the construction and renovation of sports stadia are making a push into Europe, signing a major deal with English Premier League soccer club Tottenham Hotspur last month.
Earlier this week, a man in the UK was sent home from work for wearing shorts -- a breach of company rules, despite the heat of summer. But rather than give in to outmoded, suffocating standards of traditional dress codes, Joey Barge had an idea: Wear a dress.
