Frankie McCamley reports. Whether to turn left or right - a simple decision for many. But the issue of choosing between the door for women and for men is once again highlighting a political touchstone dividing social conservatives and those who support greater equality. Last May the Obama Administration directed public schools to allow transgender access to such facilities consistent with their gender identity, not what was on their birth certificate. It warned if schools were to discriminate, they could lose funding.

In past moments of crisis from Watergate to 9/11, Americans have ultimately benefited from having both congressional inquiries and independent commissions,” read the note. “Indeed, an independent commission would ensure that both parties have full authority to investigate. Perhaps most importantly, it is essential that the process be non-partisan in order to fully explore the Trump team’s involvement. Attempting to guide along the efforts, it also insisted that any investigation must include: “A full list of all contacts between the Trump campaign, its staff, and informal advisers with Russian officials, including any Russian intelligence officials, and/or WikiLeaks; Access to transcripts or recordings of those communications, including between General Flynn and Russian Ambassador Kislyak, as well as Donald Trump and President Putin prior to the inauguration; An accounting and summary of briefings given to Members of Congress prior to and after the election on this topic.

Feb 23, 2017 Dubai, 22nd February: Retail banking today has already become a digital business, spurred by the rapid spread of broadband access and affordable smart mobile devices. Globally, an average of more than half of consumers' banking interactions took place through online or mobile channels, with an even greater share in digitally advanced markets like the Nordic countries and Australia. However, in the Middle East, despite all the interest in mobile banking and digital payments, banks have still not weaned off the brick-and-mortar model. Held at the Le Meridien Dubai Hotel from 4 to 5 April, this year’s edition, the 12th Annual Middle East Retail Banking Confex will be hosting top bankers from around the world to share their insights on how retail banking in the region is set to undergo a significant change.

New Zealand's competition watchdog rejected a multi-billion dollar merger between Vodafone NZ and pay-TV operator Sky on Thursday, saying the combined entity would have too much market power. Sky Network Television and Vodafone unveiled the planned tie-up between New Zealand's largest subscription television service and its second biggest telecoms provider last June, estimating it was worth NZ$3.44 billion ($2.47 billion). It was widely seen as a means for Sky -- which has no connection with the European broadcaster of the same name -- to fight the rise of streaming services such as Netflix. But the New Zealand Commerce Commission said it was concerned Vodafone would have an unfair advantage if it had access to Sky's exclusive sporting content, which includes All Blacks' Tests and the Olympics. "Given the merged entity?s ability to leverage its premium live sports content, we cannot rule out the real chance that demand for its offers would attract a large number of non-Vodafone customers," it said.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has asked his aides to find ways to improve his media profile, a request that comes as U.S. diplomats increasingly worry about the direction of the State Department and whether their new boss has enough influence with President Donald Trump. A State Department official said Tillerson’s aides have asked staffers at the agency to draft a paper laying out ways he can engage with reporters, who have been given almost no access to the new Cabinet member. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to share the information. The State Department’s press office did not immediately respond to multiple requests for comment. That Tillerson is asking for media advice suggests he is concerned about the perception that he is out of the loop on major foreign policy decisions being made by the Trump administration.

They are in the same position now as all Labour governments have always been, and that's why they're getting... Time is a little bit short. Over the next couple of weeks, what are you trying to achieve? What would you like to see at the end of this Brexit discussion in the Lords? At the end of the day, I have to reluctantly accept that we are likely to leave the European Union, but we have to make sure that for the Welsh manufacturing industry, for the farmers and for everyone else, that there is a total free access to the European market.
