Thankful to arrive on snowy U.S. holiday with power out, travel delays

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Millions of Americans were thankful just to arrive at their Thanksgiving feasts on Thursday after a snowstorm dumped up to 20 inches of snow on Eastern states, causing flight delays and power outages. Snow flurries drifted over Thomas the Tank Engine, Snoopy and other giant helium balloons in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, where police reported the disorderly conduct arrests of at least seven protesters who had vowed over social media to throw the event into disarray to show outrage over the racially charged Michael Brown case in Ferguson, Missouri. The demonstrators were arrested on Sixth Avenue and 37th Street #Business #India #Japan #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Argentina #Mexico #author

Islamic State lacks funds to keep control of Iraqi, Syrian territory - experts

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Islamic State (IS) militants may ultimately lose the war in Iraq and Syria because they do not have enough money to run the territory under their control, despite holding assets worth more than $2 trillion, international terrorism experts said. The cost of running an entire administration paying civil servants and the military, maintaining roads, schools, hospitals, electricity and water networks is far beyond the reach of Islamic State, said Charles Brisard, an expert on terrorist financing and a consultant on business intelligence. #Business #United States #Pakistan #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #markets #author
