Tuesday marks 100 years since the tragic sinking of the SS Mendi, which was ferrying South African soldiers to France during World War 1. More than 600 troops - most of whom were black - died when a large cargo steamship collided with the SS Mendi in the English Channel. They will be remembered during Armed Forces Day celebrations in Durban tomorrow. President Jacob Zuma as the commander in Chief will deliver the main address. More than four-thousand soldiers are expected to parade through the city.

People should always take responsibility for what they do. A chef is responsible for the quality of his dishes, even if the restaurant is ultimately liable. I may be a lowly hack, but I am still fully accountable for what I write. This is especially so when you are high up in the hierarchy of an organisation. When you are a minister with a policy portfolio, you cant say the whole government is responsible for your failure. That is why I find a statement from Secretary for Education Eddie...

I'm behind you. Alison Holt, BBC News. NHS trusts in England are overspending by hundreds of millions of pounds more than expected, according to figures out today. Trusts reported a deficit of £886 million in the last quarter, more than one and a half times the Government target. The chief executive of the NHS Confederation, Niall Dickson, says the immediate priority should be increased funding for social care. I think the solution is to, first of all, put more money into social care, because the pressures that you are seeing in hospitals, and indeed in mental-health trusts as well, is a manifestation of a system which is not currently working.

We are not in Iraq to seize anybody's oil, he said. While speaking at the CIA headquarters last month, Trump cited the adage. To the victor belong the spoils, and said America should have kept the oil after pulling most of its troops out of the country under his predecessor Barack Obama. The president then added, without elaborating, that maybe we'll have another chance. Mattis has emerged as a vital statesman for the Trump administration and has spent the past week in Europe and the Gulf on a mission to reassure allies that America is not about to abandon old military alliances. Trump also despatched Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Vice President Mike Pence to Europe in a bid to show unwavering US support to NATO.

This is going to be one of the two test projects for the consumer financing company in 2017, chief executive Pavel Maco told ET, in a telephonic interview. A plan to grow business in the home appliances space is another challenge for the company. It looks to finance refrigerators and washing machines more aggressively with an aim to grow its portfolio three times this year from Rs 1570 crore at the end of December 2016. In the five years of its existence in India, it has financed 1.8 million mobile phones, making this 90% of its business. Financing of consumer durables accounts for just about 5% of its portfolio. It also finances purchase of two-wheelers.

KUALA LUMPUR: Police are mulling action over the leak of a closed-circuit television (CCTV) recording connected to the death of Kim Jong-Nam. The dissemination of the CCTV recording is seen as interfering in police investigations into the case. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, when asked what action would be taken against those responsible for leaking the recording, replied: "We will study (the matter)." Selangor police chief Datuk Seri Abdul Samah Mat said police would investigate the matter before taking further action. "This matter (dissemination of the CCTV recording) to some extent disturbs the task of the police," he said when contacted. The video, which was aired by a foreign broadcaster, went viral on social sites since last night. It shows the attack on Jong-Nam at the KL International Airport 2 by a woman who put a piece of cloth over his head while he was waiting to board a flight to Macau.

Also present was Penang Gerakan Youth acting chief Jason Loo who urged that living heritage like that of Chan should be protected. He said traditional shops within the George Town Heritage Zone were under pressure to continue their business from development as well as from the next generation being reluctant to take over. He said George Town would not be a heritage site were it not for living heritage elements which he described as the "life and soul" of the place. "Youths now prefer to spend time and modern shops, I hope they can change their routines and spend more time in traditional shops to help preserve this way of life," he added.

"They are a clear attack on religious freedom, putting Buddhist monks and laypeople at risk of arbitrary arrest and other punishments simply for the peaceful practice of their beliefs," it said. The widespread belief that the temple has links to the populist government ousted by the army in 2014, and a brasher brand of Buddhism than the conservative traditions of king and army, make the temple a thorn in the side of the establishment. The temple claims millions of followers and, in a country that is 95 percent Buddhist, assaults on saffron-robed monks are taboo. "If Phra Dhammachayo turns himself in, then this situation would be resolved, it would be over, because his disciples listen to him," National Police Chief Jakthip Chaijinda told reporters. "Let us fight in a court of law instead." Most police taking part in the search at the temple, on the outskirts of Bangkok, are not armed.

I started out as a crew chief on the old Hueys. Because of the organization I was in, I got to sit up front a number of times and I always thought, This is pretty cool. I liked aviation and flying and I got my initial private pilot's license while I was in the Army stationed in Colorado. They had a flying club at the airfield and that's where I got my pilot's license. This was just a private pilot, fixed-wing, license, for flying things like a Cessna 150 or 172. After that though, I decided I wanted to be a pilot for the military. This is 1968, we're right in the middle of Vietnam and I applied to Officer Candidate School and was accepted. I went to Fort Sill, Oklahoma in March of 1968; OCS was a six-month course. Initially, I was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the US Army Artillery. From there, I went directly to flight school.

On procurement, it is obviously important that we get good value for money. One of the things we have done is to change procurement rules to allow some of these wider impacts to be taken into account. We know that Opel has not made a profit in the EU since 1999 and the Chief Executive of PSA has a record of drastically reducing costs.
