At U.N. climate talks, growing frustration at snail's pace | Reuters

BONN, Germany The "snail's pace" of progress on an accord to combat climate change caused widening unease at U.N. negotiations on Friday, with time fast running out before a Paris summit at which a global agreement is due to be reached. The United Nations said the talks were still on track for that meeting in December following a week of discussions in Bonn to clarify options about everything from cuts in greenhouse gas emissions to ways to raise aid to poor nations. #Technology #France #Middle East #science #Europe #opinion #Business

China to put on huge show of force for World War Two anniversary| Reuters

BEIJING China will put on a huge show of force on Thursday with goose-stepping troops and nuclear-capable missiles parading through Beijing, marking 70 years since the end of World War Two and the country's growing military might and confidence. More than 12,000 soldiers, most Chinese but with contingents from Russia and elsewhere, will march past Tiananmen Square overseen by President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin and leaders of several other friendly nations, including Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, who is wanted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court. Many Western leaders will be conspicuous by their absence, nervous about appearing on the same stage as people like Putin and about the message China is sending to a region already worried by Beijing's growing military assertiveness, especially in the South China Sea. #France #Russia #Africa #Taiwan #opinion #Business #India

French Economy Minister pledges love, reforms, to business leaders| Reuters

JOUY-EN-JOSAS, France France's Socialist government will keep making changes aimed at helping businesses until the end of its mandate in 2017, Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday, pledging both "love" and "demonstrations of love." One year after Prime Minister Manuel Valls told the annual conference of French employers' organisation Medef that he "loves business," Macron told Medef that the government had shown this was not just words, listing steps to boost investment and cut corporate tax. "There is love, and there are demonstrations of love," the former banker turned Socialist economy minister said. He did not, however, announce any new reforms. #United States #Technology #France #Middle East #Europe #opinion

Brazil court gives another 15 days for Rousseff to explain accounts| Reuters

BRASILIA Brazil's highest accounting court gave another 15 days for President Dilma Rousseff to respond to accusations she doctored the government accounts last year to hide the deterioration of the country's finances. Judges of the Federal Accounts Court, known as the TCU, decided on Wednesday to give Rousseff more time in a case that her opponents believe could pave the way for her impeachment. Rousseff had already been granted 15 days on Aug 12 to respond to new findings made by court officials #Business #United States #Brazil #France #science #opinion
