Great Barrier Reef kept off UNESCO 'danger' list for now| Reuters

PARIS A heritage committee of the UNESCO cultural agency stopped short of placing Australia's Great Barrier Reef on an "in danger" list, but the ruling on Friday raised long-term concerns about its future. The long-awaited ruling by UNESCO's World Heritage Committee welcomed Australian efforts to maintain the environmentally sensitive region but noted its outlook was "poor" and called on the government to stick rigidly to commitments to protect it. "Climate change, poor water quality and impacts from coastal development are major threats to the property's health...," the statement said after delegates held discussions in the German city in Bonn. #Business #Sports #Australia #science #Health #markets #Africa #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion

France's UMP party changes name to The Republicans| Reuters

The strong majority makes it more likely Sarkozy will win the party's nomination to run for president and weakens the position of his main challenger, former prime minister Alain Juppe. "We call on all Republicans to rally around us," Sarkozy said in a statement #Business #India #Technology #France #Middle East #science #Africa #Argentina #Copyright #Entertainment #Mexico

Sahara's tricks on Sebi, SC won't work

Sahara's goose is cooked up. It is one thing to manipulate incompetent/corrupt revenue officers of state govts to get land deals, quite another to try such tricks with independent organizations like SC, SEBI. #Business #Supreme Court #SEBI #Sahara #Sahara advertisement
