"The major economies will be confronted with shrinking workforce and diminishing productivity gains while they are recovering from the 2008-2009 financial crisis that left them with high debt, weak demand and doubts about globalisation. "During the next five years, the global economy will continue to struggle to resume growth as the world's major economies slowly recover from the 2008-2009 crisis and work through a sharp increase in public-sector debt," he said. Ahmad Zahid said the third global trend was climate change environment and health issues that demanded attention. "A range of global hazards pose imminent and longer-term threats that will require collective action to address even as cooperation becomes harder," he said. — Bernama

The activists denounced Beijing’s “interference” amid widespread reports of unprecedented lobbying of voters to back Lam, rather than Tsang, chanting “I want universal suffrage” when the result was announced. “Lies, coercion, whitewash,” read one banner. A big yellow banner calling for full democracy was hung from the Lion Rock peak overlooking the city. “The central government has intervened again and again,” said Carmen Tong, a 20-year-old student. “It’s very unjust.” China increases control Since Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule in 1997, Beijing has gradually increased control over it even though China had promised wide-ranging freedoms and autonomy not allowed on the mainland under the formula of “one country, two systems,” along with an undated promise of universal suffrage. Many, including opposition democrats, fear Lam will continue the tough policies of staunchly pro-Beijing incumbent Leung Chun-ying, a controversial figure who ordered the firing of tear gas on pro-democracy protesters in 2014 and who was not seen to be defending Hong Kong’s autonomy and core values.

Kate Middleton can never be an Everywoman, however hard the palace tries The Duchess of Cambridge gave a talk at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists last week on behalf of a series of filmsOut of the Blueproduced by the Best Beginnings organisation, promoting good mental health for parents and their children. Her talk, saying that motherhood was “overwhelming” and a “huge challenge”, was lauded for proving that, whoever you are, motherhood is a great leveller, placing everyone in the same boat. Presumably, the idea was that ordinary mothers everywhere could now turn to each other and cry: “Thank God, we’re not alone, even Kate struggles with her lack of confidence and feelings of ignorance.” While I know it’s Mother’s Day, and the talk was for a good cause, isnt this just blatant rubbish?

In Gorakhpur, the power base of a firebrand monk, religious tension grows Pastor Ritesh Joshua had just called a tea break when he saw the men in the saffron scarves. More than a hundred, some wielding sticks, had massed outside his white stucco church on the outskirts of Gorakhpur, a temple town in eastern Uttar Pradesh, India’s most populous state. It was three days after Christmas. “They started shouting, ‘You are converting people. We will not allow any conversions here’,” he says. “They shoved people, turned over furniture, and told me, ‘You are the main culprit’.” Continue reading...

K., Ford’s performance Chief, Dave Pericak, all but confirmed that an RS-badged SUV could be in the blue oval’s future. When asked specifically about it, Pericak said, “I think customers love performance. I think the definition of what that means for an SUV might be different than what it means for a Focus or for a Fiesta . But I think that we’ve seen, even in the US and globally, that people like aggressive-looking cars, they like sporty, they want the power and pick-up and engine improvement, so I think the answer is yes. SUV customers would appreciate performance, for sure.” So, it’s quite possible that we could see an RS-badged Ford SUV sometime in the coming years, but what model will it be? Keep reading to hear our predictions and learn a little more about it. Continue reading for the full story.

Other democracy activists hung a large, yellow banner from a peak called Lion Rock, overlooking the city, with the slogan, “I want universal suffrage.” Security was tight around the voting center with 2,000 or so police officers expected to be deployed in the vicinity in case of unrest.

Spaniard wins quarter-final 75 and will face Bill Haas in semisPhil Mickelson says 22-year-old is ‘real deal’ and can reach world top 10 Spain’s illustrious conveyor belt of golf talent means Jon Rahm was always destined to be subject to comparison. Here is the most uplifting one: not since a 19-year-old Seve Ballesteros finished second in the Open Championship of 1976 has a player from that country arrived on the scene with such statements of intent. Rahm’s star continues to rise at such a pace that, on Saturday, bookmakers slashed his odds to win the Masters in a fortnight’s time. The 22-year-old has not even played competitively at Augusta National before. Continue reading...

Vatanka also questioned the economic viability of a pipeline project through Iraq, but noted that Iran "often makes sentimental calculations over helping neighboring Shi'ites," rather than "weighing economic considerations." In the meantime, as conflicts continue to rage in Syria and Iraq, U.S. President Donald Trump has pledged to try to "cut a deal with Russia," and his secretary of state, former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, knows the energy map of the Levant and the leaders behind it better than most diplomats.
