Why are Indians so racist? Because we don't talk about it!

Hong Kong students, officials set for first talks on political crisis

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Senior Hong Kong government officials will meet student leaders for the first time on Tuesday in an attempt to defuse more than three weeks of pro-democracy protests which have brought parts of the Asian financial centre to a standstill. Hopes are low for any breakthrough during the evening talks, which will be broadcast live, with both sides refusing to give ground in resolving the worst political crisis in the former British colony since it was handed back to China in 1997. #Politics #facebook #United States #India #Japan #Brazil #Technology #Argentina #Latin America

Libya parliament allies with renegade general, struggles to assert authority

BENGHAZI Libya (Reuters) - Libya's beleaguered elected parliament has declared a formal alliance with a renegade former general, as it struggles to assert some authority in a country many fear is sliding into outright civil war. Three years after the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi, the oil-producing desert state is in chaos, with Islamists and other militias fighting for territory and influence and the regular armed forces left with little power. One militia faction has seized Tripoli, setting up its own assembly and administration in the capital and forcing the government to take refuge in the eastern part of the country. #Politics #Business #United States #Russia #Argentina #Latin America #House #Mexico

Cell transplant helps paralysed man walk with frame

LONDON (Reuters) - A Bulgarian man who was paralysed from the chest down in a knife attack can now walk with the aid of a frame after receiving pioneering transplant treatment using cells from his nose. The technique, described as a breakthrough by a study in the journal Cell Transplantation, involved transplanting what are known as olfactory ensheathing cells into the patient's spinal cord and constructing a "nerve bridge" between two stumps of the damaged spinal column. #Politics #United States #India #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Russia #markets #Italy #United Kingdom #Mexico

Home care kits highlight gaps in West Africa's Ebola response

DAKAR/MONROVIA (Reuters) - With the number of Ebola cases spiralling in West Africa and weeks remaining until treatment units promised by Western governments are built, health workers fighting one of the world's deadliest diseases are being forced to improvise. In the "hot zones" of Liberia, where Ebola patients are being turned away from overflowing clinics, aid agencies are distributing tens of thousands of protection kits, made up of buckets, chlorine, soap, gloves, a gown and instructions on how to look after the infected in their own homes. #United States #India #Japan #France #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #markets #Argentina #Mexico
