A great leap backwards: Patel agitation is making reservations a zero-sum game

There is a need to now make a larger point about extending mindless reservations.

Lebanon's Hezbollah, Christian allies boycott cabinet meeting| Reuters

BEIRUT The Lebanese Shi'ite Muslim group Hezbollah and allied Christian politicians boycotted a cabinet meeting on Thursday, a sign of rising political tensions that have paralysed Prime Minister Tammam Salam's national unity government. Ministers from the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM) led by Michel Aoun shunned the meeting in protest at what the party's website described as Salam's usurping of powers reserved for the president. A Hezbollah minister said the group had boycotted in solidarity with its allies #Business #Syria #Middle East #markets #Iran #United Kingdom #opinion

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

CAIRO Yemeni government forces intend to launch the battle for Sanaa within two months and steps are already under way to break the grip of Houthi fighters who controlled the capital for nearly a year, said the country's exiled foreign minister.

Libyan peace talks disrupted again after faction negotiator quits| Reuters

SKHIRAT, Morocco Libya's unofficial government dropped out of the latest round of U.N.-backed peace talks on Thursday, soon before they were due to start, in another disruption to efforts to end months of conflict. A representative of the faction said it needed more time to form a new negotiation team after a senior member quit, and would return to the table when it was ready, but gave no indication of when that might be. The United Nations formally opened the session with other groups in the Moroccan city of Skhirat, but there was little prospect of any progress without one of the main sides in a conflict that has brought Libya to its knees in the four years since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi. #science #Africa #Latin America #Entertainment #opinion
