Solar industry fears for thousands of jobs should U.S. impose import restrictions  

Solar industry fears for thousands of jobs should U.S. impose import restrictionsBy Florence Tan SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Singapore-headquartered solar panel maker REC hopes to be exempt from potential U.S. restrictions on imports following a recent trade finding that said no significant injury to the United States had been caused by makers including those from Australia, Canada and Singapore. U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to announce by early next year measures which his administration will take to limit imports after the U.S. International Trade Commission found in September that U.S. panel makers had been harmed by cheap imports. Many companies have warned that a solar trade dispute involving potential import tariffs between the United States and other countries could cost thousands of jobs and slow down the development of the clean energy technology.

'Unacceptably high' number of Afghans flee military training in U.S.: report  

'Unacceptably high' number of Afghans flee military training in U.S.: reportBy Josh Smith KABUL (Reuters) - Afghan soldiers and police brought to the United States for training go "absent without leave" at far higher rates than those of any other country, potentially imperilling efforts to assist Afghan security forces, a U.S. watchdog said on Friday. Of the 320 foreign military trainees who left while on courses in the United States from 2005 to 2017, 152 - or more than 47 percent - were Afghans, said a report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR). SIGAR found that the rate of asylum seekers among Afghan military trainees rose in recent years as violence in the Islamist Taliban insurgency spread across Afghanistan and security forces sustained heavy casualties.

Man's fingertip torn off as wild boar rampage puts German town under siege  

Man's fingertip torn off as wild boar rampage puts German town under siegeTwo aggressive wild boars attacked and injured several people in the small German town of Heide on Friday morning, tearing through the town centre in a rampage which lasted for hours. Four people were injured, and one man’s fingertip was torn off, according to police reports. Others suffered leg injuries, as they were hit by the fully-grown animals in the northernmost state of Schleswig-Holstein.  The boars tore through the streets and ran through the market square, before making their way into a local bank branch, according to police, who issued a warning at around 9am urging people to avoid the town centre and to stay in their houses or in shops. One eyewitness saw a woman lying on the ground, screaming, after her trousers had been torn, according to German radio station NDR 1 Welle Nord. Another said they were "completely bewildered" and that the boars had come "out of nowhere".  After a large-scale operation, during which police and hunters chased the boar with stun rifles, one was killed by huntsman Uwe Ingwersen at 11am - two hours after the animals were first spotted - with a targeted head shot. The second ran away from the centre and police say it is now outside the city area.  Terror in Ditmarschen���� pic.twitter.com/mheLOKa5RK— Daggi (@danishkeks) October 20, 2017 Customers in the bank, which was invaded by the boars, were evacuated through open windows using ladders, according to police reports. Several cars were also damaged. Wild boar still roam the forests of Germany and are seen as a menace by much of German society. Marcus Börner, press officer at the Country Hunting Association, told the Schleswig-Holstein newspaper that it is highly stressful for boars, which have spread extensively in the state in recent decades, to be caught between walls and among so many people, causing them to become aggressive.  Earlier this year, a herd of wild boars attacked several people, injuring three, near Berlin's Tegel airport. Local media reported that it took authorities 18 shots to down one 200-kilogram boar, while the rest of the herd escaped.

Donald Trump blames UK crime rise on 'spread of radical Islamic terror' in tweet, saying 'Not good, we must keep America safe!'  

Donald Trump blames UK crime rise on 'spread of radical Islamic terror' in tweet, saying 'Not good, we must keep America safe!'Donald Trump has weighed in on Britain's reported rise in crime, linking it to "radical Islamic terror" in a tweet and saying "not good, we must keep America safe!" "Just out report: "United Kingdom crime rises 13 per cent annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror." Not good, we must keep America safe!" the US President tweeted on Friday morning. The comment came after official figures released on Friday showed a 13 per cent increase in violent crime in England and Wales - with a total of 5.2 million offences in the year to the end of June. The figures have mostly been attributed to an increase in sex and knife crimes. Just out report: "United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror." Not good, we must keep America safe!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 20 October 2017 However, Mr Trump's information may have been derived from a further breakdown of the statistics, which showed a "substantial increase", of 59 per cent, in the number of attempted murder offences registered, which was largely due to terror-related cases. The rise in violent crime however was largely attributed to a surge in knife related offences, which were up 26 per cent and have been put down to gang activities, rather than terrorism. Last year there were almost 37,000 offences involving bladed weapons, with 214 men and women stabbed to death in England and Wales.

End of Australia auto-making sector as Holden closes doorsThe last car rolled off the production line of Australian automaker Holden on Friday, marking the demise of a national industry unable to stand up to global competition. The closure of the Elizabeth plant in South Australia is the end of an era for Holden, which first started in the state as a saddlery business in 1856 and made the nation's first mass-produced car in 1948. The brand has long been an Australian household name, with 1970s commercials singing that "football, meat pies, kangaroos and Holden cars" were part of the nation's identity.


 

Barack Obama is back on the campaign trail, baby  

Barack Obama is back on the campaign trail, babyHe's back. After months out of the spotlight, Barack Obama spoke at his first campaign rally, backing New Jersey Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy in front of a crowd of Democrats on Thursday night. SEE ALSO: Trumps offends family of another fallen soldier, and this time a $25,000 check was involved Following dribs and drabs of commentary online, Obama returned to full voice at the event, where there was plenty of Trump shade — even though the current president's name wasn't mentioned. NOW: Former Pres. Obama campaigns for New Jersey gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy in Newark https://t.co/12ntJ4g0Sp pic.twitter.com/DX9YbgDtNR — CBS News (@CBSNews) October 19, 2017 "What we can't have, is the same old politics of division that we have seen so many times before that dates back centuries," Obama said.  "Some of the politics we see now, we thought we'd put that to bed. I mean, that's folks looking 50 years back. It's the 21st century, not the 19th century." Obama also added nothing "frustrates" him more when people complain, but didn't vote.  "If you give away your power, and then somebody does things contrary to your interests, that's not that person's fault, that's your fault," he remarked.   At a another campaign rally for Virginian Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam later that day, Obama again reflected on divisive politics. Former Pres. Barack Obama revved up crowds for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam https://t.co/aqZVDcloFP pic.twitter.com/TnsQm1ZL0D — CBS News (@CBSNews) October 20, 2017 "We're at our best not when we're trying to put people down, but when we're trying to lift everybody up," he said. "You notice I haven't been commenting a lot on politics lately. But here's one thing I know. If you have to win a campaign by dividing people, you're not going to be able to govern them. You won't be able to unite them later if that's how you start." And yes, there's another thinly-veiled swipe at Trump. "Folks don't feel good right now about what they see. They don't feel as if our public life reflects our best. Instead of politics reflecting our values, we have politics infecting our communities," he said. Oh he's back, alright.
