China's third-ranked leader says to pay more attention to HK youth

HONG KONG (Reuters) - China's third-ranked leader wants greater attention paid to young people in Hong Kong, after they staged pro-democracy protests last year that shut down parts of the city for 2-1/2 months. Zhang Dejiang, who heads China's largely rubber-stamp parliament, the National People's Congress, said last year's "illegal acts" highlight an urgent need to focus on young people and possibly revive the idea of a patriotic curriculum, Hong Kong media said on Thursday. The comments echo remarks last month by the head of China's Hong Kong liaison office, who said Beijing aimed to tighten control of the global financial hub and warned that the central government could take a renewed interest in patriotic education, an issue that sparked mass protests in Hong Kong in 2012 #Business #United States #Japan #Technology #Arabic #Russia #Argentina #Latin America #Entertainment

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Prime Minister Narendra Modi will offer island nations in the Indian Ocean a broad range of military and civilian assistance next week in a bid to wrest back some of the influence China has gained by spending billions of dollars in the region. Modi will make the pledges during a visit to Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Mauritius and Seychelles after decades of neglect by successive Indian governments. His trip to Sri Lanka will be the first in 28 years by an Indian prime minister. #United States #Technology #France #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico #author #indian

Thailand tests floating homes in region grappling with floods

AYUTTHAYA, Thailand (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Nestled among hundreds of identical white and brown two-storey homes crammed in this neighbourhood for factory workers is a house with a trick - one not immediately apparent from its green-painted drywall and grey shade panels.
