Ditching cars for buses, bikes best way to cut city pollution - study

LONDON, Sept 17 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Encouraging people to abandon their cars and use public transport or walk or cycle around cities offers the "least pain, most gain" way to cut air pollution from traffic by 2050, a new international study said on Wednesday. The report, by the University of California and the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP), proposed governments expand rail and bus transport and ensure cities are safer for pedestrians and cyclists #Politics #United States #China #Business #Japan #Brazil #markets #Latin America

EXCLUSIVE - South Korea's Park says door open for talks with North

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean President Park Geun-hye, thwarted so far in ambitious plans to begin the process of reunifying the Korean peninsula, said the door is open for talks with the North during the upcoming U.N. General Assembly. However, Park said in an interview that Pyongyang must show sincerity in seeking a constructive dialogue and "walk the talk" in taking up South Korea's offers for engagement aimed at ending a deadlock after a decade of warming ties. #facebook #United States #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #Russia #South Korea #markets #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

Wildfire rips through 150 homes in Northern California

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Fire crews in California battled on Tuesday to halt the advance of a day-old wildfire that has already destroyed about 150 homes, lapped at rural schools and caused power outages that left an evacuation shelter without electricity, authorities said. The blaze, one of about a dozen major fires raging across the drought-parched state, prompted authorities to order the evacuation of about 1,000 households in and around the Northern California town of Weed, which has a population of about 3,000. #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

Ukraine ratifies EU deal, offers special status to rebels

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine ratified a sweeping agreement with the European Union on Tuesday - an issue at the heart of the Russia-West crisis over its future - and sought to blunt the independence drive of Russian-backed separatists by offering them temporary and limited self-rule. But though Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko savoured a historic triumph with parliament's seal of approval for the EU deal, his peacemaking efforts drew derision from separatists and some mainstream politicians, while his military reported three more deaths of Ukrainian servicemen despite an 11-day ceasefire. "No nation has ever paid such a high price to become Europeans," Poroshenko told parliament referring to the bloody conflict that has gripped Ukraine since his predecessor, Viktor Yanukovich, walked away from the EU pact last November in favour of closer ties with Ukraine's former Soviet master, Russia #facebook #United States #China #Business #Brazil #France #Arabic #Middle East #markets #Mexico #opinion

BJP win lifts markets, but road to economic recovery may be long

The function of the markets is to believe what it wants to believe. A bear market factors in only the worst even if there are some signs of turning around. A bull market factors in the best, even if the signals are unsustainable. #Economy #Stock market #GDP #BJP #ToWhatEffect #Indian rupee #Lok Sabha elections #tax revenue
