Robert Mugabe flies to Singapore in his first trip since being ousted
 Zimbabwe's former president Robert Mugabe has left the country for medical checks in Singapore, his first foreign travel since the army forced him from office last month, a state security official said on Tuesday. The 93-year-old, who ruled the southern African nation for 37 years, resigned after the army and his ruling ZANU-PF party turned against him when it became clear that his 52-year-old wife, Grace, was being groomed as his successor. Until recently the world's oldest head of state, Mugabe had a reputation for extensive and expensive international travel, including regular medical trips to Singapore - a source of public anger among his impoverished citizens. He left Harare with Grace and aides on Monday evening, the official said. He is expected to make a stop-over in Malaysia, where his daughter, Bona, is expecting a second child. "He has gone for a routine medical trip to Singapore," said the official, who has organised Mugabe's security protection but who is not authorised to speak to the media. "He was due for a check-up but events of the last few weeks made it impossible for him to travel." The trip means Mugabe will not be in Zimbabwe when ZANU-PF endorses President Emmerson Mnangagwa as its leader and presidential candidate for next year's elections during a one-day special congress on Friday. The security official would not say how Mugabe was travelling although the privately owned NewsDay newspaper said he was on a state-owned Air Zimbabwe plane. Mugabe was granted immunity from prosecution and assured of his safety under his resignation deal, a source of frustration to many Zimbabweans who accused him of looting state coffers and destroying the economy during his time in power. Another government official told Reuters last month Mugabe had been due to travel to Singapore on Nov. 16 but was unable to leave because the military had confined him to his private home the previous day. George Charamba, a senior information ministry official, declined to comment. Under Zimbabwe's Presidential Pension and Retirement Benefits Act, a former head of state is entitled to perks including limited foreign travel and medical insurance. "These are very standard features of a retired president," another government official said, trying to head off any controversy. "You are making a storm out of nothing."

On Mideast trip, Putin orders partial withdrawal from Syria
Russian President Vladimir Putin held talks with his Turkish counterpart in Ankara on Monday for the last leg of a day-long diplomatic dash, during which he ordered the partial withdrawal of Russia's troops from the war-torn country. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met Putin at his presidential complex in Ankara for a closed-door meeting. This is the eighth face-to-face meeting between Putin and Erdogan this year, a sign of the intensity of a relationship that had hit rock bottom in November 2015 when Turkey shot down a Russian war plane over Syria.

U.S. judge warns of mistrial in Nevada rancher Bundy's trial
A U.S. federal judge in the criminal conspiracy trial of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and three other men on Monday warned that prosecutors' failure to produce documents that could support defense arguments may lead to a mistrial. The four men, including two of Bundy's sons Ammon and Ryan, are accused of conspiring to use the threat of force in a 2014 armed standoff with federal agents near Bundy's ranch. The revolt was sparked by the court-ordered roundup of Bundy's cattle by government agents over his refusal to pay fees required to graze the herd on federal land.

CUBI suffered in 2017 after writing off a bad investment that damaged earnings per share, but with that impairment almost totally behind it, EPS is expected to rise 27 percent in 2018 -- and it wouldn't be shocking for CUBI to rise that amount, either.

EU tells Netanyahu it rejects Trump's Jerusalem move
By Robin Emmott and John Davison BRUSSELS/CAIRO (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took his case to Europe to ask allies to join the United States in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, but met a firm rebuff from EU foreign ministers who saw the move as a blow against the peace process. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, meanwhile, took his own case to Egypt on Monday and was expected to fly to Turkey for a meeting of Muslim countries this week, cementing support from leaders who say the U.S. move was a dire error. President Donald Trump announced last Wednesday the United States would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, breaking with decades of U.S. policy and international consensus that the city's status must be left to Israeli-Palestinian talks.

Dying polar bear roams iceless land for food in 'soul-crushing' video
Heartbreaking footage of a starving polar bear desperately searching for food on iceless land highlights the “real face of climate change”, conservationists say. Photojournalist Paul Nicklen said his team were moved to tears as they captured the struggling animal’s battle to stay alive on Canada’s Baffin Island last summer. The “soul-crushing” scene, captured by marine conservationists SeaLegacy, shows the emaciated bear searching an abandoned Inuit camp for sustenance. “My entire SeaLegacy team was pushing through their tears and emotions while documenting this dying polar bear,” explained Mr Nicklen. “It’s a soul-crushing scene that still haunts me, but I know we need to share both the beautiful and the heartbreaking if we are going to break down the walls of apathy. This is what starvation looks like. The muscles atrophy. No energy. It’s a slow, painful death. Polar bears are listed as vulnerable due to a “loss of sea ice habitat from climate change” Credit: AP “When scientists say polar bears will be extinct in the next 100 years, I think of the global population of 25,000 bears dying in this manner. There is no band aid solution. There was no saving this individual bear. People think that we can put platforms in the ocean or we can feed the odd starving bear. “The simple truth is this - if the Earth continues to warm, we will lose bears and entire polar ecosystems. This large male bear was not old, and he certainly died within hours or days of this moment. But there are solutions. We must reduce our carbon footprint, eat the right food, stop cutting down our forests, and begin putting the Earth-our home-first.” His colleague Cristina Mittermeier said it was “one of the hardest shoots we have ever had to do”. “Through tears, we were able to capture this footage with the hope of awakening people to the realities of a climate change future,” she said. Polar bears are the poster child for climate change  Credit: AP SeaLegacy said though it couldn’t say with 100 per cent certainty what had caused the bear to starve to death, the group added: “We do know that he didn’t have any visible wounds and that he was not an old bear. “Many of you have asked whether we could have saved this individual bear, but the hard truth is that he was on his last legs and his muscles had atrophied beyond repair. It would also have been illegal to feed him, to approach him, or to do anything to ease his pain.” The group warned an increasing number of polar bears are likely to die in this way “as a result of our warming climate”. “As global temperatures rise, the amount of multi-year sea ice in the Arctic shrinks. Polar bears depend on that ice to travel large distances and to hunt for their food. Without sea ice this will become a common scene across the Arctic,” they said.  The World Wildlife Fund says polar bears are vulnerable due to a “loss of sea ice habitat from climate change”. A study published last year by University of Washington researchers found that polar bears across the Arctic are facing a shorter sea ice season, a surface they depend on for hunting, travelling and breeding.

“What Putin Really Wants”: The Atlantic’s January/February Issue Cover Story
Washington, D.C. (December 11, 2017)—Vladimir Putin is no chess master. He’s a gambler who has taken larger risks in recent years. And while the subversion of the 2016 U.S. election was a spectacular geopolitical heist pulled off on a shoestring budget, Americans have a key misunderstanding of Russia and the man that pulls the strings. The Atlantic staff writer Julia Ioffe spent months reporting on her native Russia to determine “What Putin Really Wants,”appearing on the cover of The Atlantic’s January/February 2018 issue and published today at TheAtlantic.com. In the wide-ranging cover story, Ioffe offers the definitive telling of how the Kremlin, despite its limitations, pulled off one of the greatest acts of political sabotage in modern history. And she describes how far an emboldened Putin is prepared to go—in 2018, in 2020—in order to get what he wants.

'What Putin Really Wants': The Atlantic's January/February Issue Cover Story
Washington, D.C. (December 11, 2017)—Vladimir Putin is no chess master. He''s a gambler who has taken larger risks in recent years. And while the subversion of the 2016 U.S. election was a spectacular geopolitical heist pulled off on a shoestring budget, Americans have a key misunderstanding of Russia and the man that pulls the strings. The Atlantic staff writer Julia Ioffe spent months reporting on her native Russia to determine 'What Putin Really Wants,'appearing on the cover of The Atlantic''s January/February 2018 issue and published today at TheAtlantic.com. In the wide-ranging cover story, Ioffe offers the definitive telling of how the Kremlin, despite its limitations, pulled off one of the greatest acts of political sabotage in modern history. And she describes how far an emboldened Putin is prepared to go—in 2018, in 2020—in order to get what he wants.

Moment of the New York 'bomb' explosion
An attempted terrorist attack which injured five people at one of New York's busiest commuter hubs has been caught on video.   The 27-year-old suspect, Akayed Ullah, can be seen lying motionless after his bomb prematurely exploded.   The Isil-inspired attacker was seriously injured along while four other people, including a police officer, suffered minor injuries.   The suspect in the incident at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, a block from Times Square, is being held in custody and has been named as Akayed Ullah by the New York Police Department (NYPD).    The weapon was based on a pipe bomb and was fixed to the suspect with zip ties and hook and loop fastens, police said.    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, described the device as "amateur level" at a press conference near the site.   New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told the same news conference that the incident, which happened at the start of the city's rush hour, was "an attempted terrorist attack."   "As New Yorkers our lives revolve around the subways. When we hear of an attack in the subways it is incredibly unsettling," de Blasio said.   The incident was captured on security video, the police said.    Video block text Video footage shows smoke and a man lying down in the tunnel that connects the Times Square subway station to the bus station.    A photograph showed a man lying face down, with tattered clothes and burns on his exposed torso.   “There was a stampede up the stairs to get out,” said Diego Fernandez, one of the commuters at Port Authority.    “Everybody was scared and running and shouting.”   Alicja Wlodkowski, a Pennsylvania resident in New York for the day, was sitting in a restaurant in the bus terminal building at the time.   “Suddenly, I saw a group of people, like six people, running like nuts," she said.    "A woman fell. No one even went to stop and help her because the panic was so scary."

US Treasury says Senate tax plan would boosts revenue $1.8 tn
The US Senate version of the tax overhaul plan would pay for itself over 10 years, boosting growth and generating $1.8 trillion in additional revenues, the Treasury Department said Monday. The Republican plan is expected to generate GDP growth of about 2.9 percent over the next decade, 0.7 percentage points higher than the current forecast, which will bring in more revenue to the government's coffers and offset the deficit increase caused by lower taxes, according to a Treasury analysis. Republicans in the House and Senate are working to come up with a final unified version of the reform that President Donald Trump can sign before the end of the year.
