Argentina's Macri is stuck between the IMF and a hard place
Fri, 19 Oct 2018 08:29:35 +0000

Argentina's Macri is stuck between the IMF and a hard placeArgentine President Mauricio Macri is used to seeing bad poll numbers as he struggles to drive through an unpopular austerity program that has cut fuel subsidies, raised taxes and sent utility bills soaring. The survey of 2,400 Argentines by local firm Management & Fit showed that for the first time since Macri romped to victory in 2015, 60 percent of Argentines expect the economy to get "worse" or "much worse" over the months ahead. It's not surprising that Macri's approval rating - now under 27 percent - is down given that the president was forced to seek an International Monetary Fund rescue package after the country's currency and inflation spiralled out of control earlier this year.

‘The greatest guy surfers surf like girls’: Meet Steph Gilmore, wonder woman of the wavesSo this is surfing in France, I tell myself as I excitedly saunter down a slope of soft beach sand, zipped up in a ultra-tight wetsuit, trying to keep a foothold as the wind tries to send me retreating back up to the surf school hut.


China moves to lift confidence as economic growth hits weakest pace since 2009
Fri, 19 Oct 2018 08:25:52 +0000

China moves to lift confidence as economic growth hits weakest pace since 2009China's economic growth cooled to its weakest quarterly pace since the global financial crisis, with regulators moving quickly to calm nervous investors as a years-long campaign to tackle debt risks and the trade war with the United States began to bite. Chinese authorities are trying to navigate through numerous challenges, as the trade war fears have sparked a blistering selloff in domestic stock markets and a steep decline in the value of the yuan versus the dollar, heightening worries about the growth outlook. The economy grew 6.5 percent in the third quarter from a year earlier, slower than 6.7 percent in the second quarter, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Friday.

Top Asian News 8:22 a.m. GMTKABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghans will return to the polls for parliamentary elections on Saturday, hoping to bring change to a corrupt government that has lost nearly half the country to the Taliban. In the eight years since Afghanistan last held parliamentary elections, a resurgent Taliban have carried out near-daily attacks on security forces, seizing large swathes of the countryside and threatening major cities. An even more radical Islamic State affiliate has launched a wave of bombings targeting the country's Shiite minority, killing hundreds. Both groups have threatened to attack anyone taking part in the vote. In areas where the government still provides relative security, Afghans face a different array of challenges.

Fri, 19 Oct 2018 08:20:00 +0000

Barcelona's Sagrada Familia gets building permit 130 years too lateThe iconic Sagrada Familia basilica in Barcelona has agreed to pay €36m (£31m) to authorities after going without a building permit for more than 130 years. Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi's famous building has been under construction for 136 years - but with no official oversight or permit from either the local council or regional government. The cathedral is also not listed in the property registry and since 1995 has only been marked as an empty plot belonging to the diocese of Barcelona, according to Spanish newspaper El Pais.

Brexit: Jeremy Hunt claims EU have been 'more constructive' in negotiations since Soviet Union comparisonJeremy Hunt has claimed the European Union has been more "constructive" in its approach to the Brexit negotiations since he likened the bloc's tactics to the Soviet Union. It comes after the foreign secretary provoked outrage at the Conservative Party conference earlier this month with his confrontational speech - accusing the EU of becoming "a prison" and vowing to "fight" for the Brexit deal Britain wants. The incendiary remarks were widely-criticised with the former head of the UK's diplomatic service, Lord Ricketts, claiming they were "unworthy" of a British foreign secretary and Theresa May rebuking Mr Hunt.
