Exclusive: Trump's Republican support holds strong post-debate - Reuters/Ipsos poll
There is no sign that Donald Trump's raucous first presidential debate is hurting his support among party voters, with the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll showing he still has a big lead over his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination. Trump's staying power is defying predictions of political doom and leading some Republicans to explore ways to persuade him not to pursue a third-party bid should he falter in his quest for the Republican nomination in 2016. Trump led the party's 17-strong ...Apple hiring big brains in car battery space
A year and a half ago, Apple Inc had applied for just eight patents related to auto batteries. Recently, it has hired a bevy of engineers, just one of whom had already filed for 17 in his former career, according to a Thomson Reuters analysis. The recent spate of hires and patent filings reviewed by Reuters shows that Apple is fast building its industrial lithium-ion battery capabilities, adding to evidence the iPhone maker may be developing a car. Quiet, clean electric cars are viewed in ...Iran offers 'compromises' in nuclear talks, West unmoved: Reuters
Iran is pushing what it portrays as a new compromise proposal in nuclear talks, but Western negotiators say it offers no viable concessions, underscoring how far apart the two sides are as they enter crunch time before a Nov. 24 deadline, Reuters reports. In the negotiations with six major powers, the Iranians say they are no longer demanding a total end to economic sanctions in return for curbing their nuclear program and would accept initially lifting just the latest, most damaging, sanctio...Erdoes: sanctions can be often favourable instrument for investments on advantag...
Any possible sanctions, influencing the market, are not only the risk for long-term investors but also very often a favourable possibility to make investments on advantageous terms, JP Morgan Asset Management CEO Ms. Mary Callahan Erdoes told TASS on Friday. “I think that there's just as many clients who are thinking about the risks of the different political issues happening all around the world, Russia just being one of them that are buffered,” she said. “But for every client that's worr...Turkey may do more against Islamic State, but how much uncertain
Turkey appears to be inching toward a greater role in the U.S.-led coalition against the Islamic State after the group freed 46 Turkish hostages, but it remains unclear how far it will go to combat the militants, Reuters reports. As the United States builds a military coalition including Gulf Arab states to fight the radical Sunni militant group, Turkey has been conspicuous by its absence, playing no public role in U.S.-led air strikes on Syria this week. While Ankara had previously ruled ...Iran seeks give and take on Islamic State militants, nuclear program
Iran is ready to work with the United States and its allies to stop Islamic State militants, but would like more flexibility on Iran's uranium enrichment program in exchange, senior Iranian officials told Reuters. The comments from the officials, who asked not to be named, highlight how difficult it may be for the Western powers to keep the nuclear negotiations separate from other regional conflicts. Iran wields influence in the Syrian civil war and on the Iraqi government, which is fighting ...Exclusive: Islamic State guides Egyptian militants, expanding its influence
Islamic State, fighting to redraw the map of the Middle East, has been coaching Egypt's most dangerous militant group, complicating efforts to stabilize the biggest Arab nation, Reuters reports. Confirmation that Islamic Sate, currently the most successful of the region's jihadi groups, is extending its influence to Egypt will sound alarm bells in Cairo, where the authorities are already facing a security challenge from home-grown militants. A senior commander from the Sinai-based Ansar Ba...Ukraine seeks to join NATO; defiant Putin compares Kiev to Nazis
Ukraine called on Friday for full membership in NATO, its strongest plea yet for Western military help, after accusing Russia of sending in armored columns that have driven back its forces on behalf of pro-Moscow rebels, Reuters reports. Russian President Vladimir Putin, defiant as ever, compared Kiev's drive to regain control of its rebellious eastern cities to the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in World War Two. He announced that rebels had succeeded in halting it, and proposed that they...Euro zone economy grinds to halt even before Russia sanctions bite
The euro zone economy ground to a halt in the second quarter of the year, drained of vigour by contraction in Germany and stagnancy in France. Zero growth reported by statistics agency Eurostat on Thursday was alarm bell for politicians and policymakers in the 18-nation economy, which is already bracing for the impact tit-for-tat sanctions against Russia over Ukraine. Germany, Europe's largest economy contracted by 0.2 percent on the quarter, undercutting Bundesbank forecasts that it would...Total US debt soars to nearly $60 trn, foreshadows new recession

Investors tensions over fighting in Iraq and Ukraine saw a global shift into traditional safe-haven currencies, precious metals and bonds on Monday, and oil hovered near a nine-month high, Reuters reports. The mood also spread to share markets. The Nikkei in Tokyo saw its biggest fall in a month and European bourses .FTEU3 started 0.2 percent in the red having just about held on for a ninth week of back-to-back gains on Friday. Worries about Iraq were intensifying after Sunni insurgents fr...China accelerates as euro zone stumbles
Signs of an economic revival in China have raised hopes that Beijing's targeted measures to bolster growth are having an impact but a slowdown in the euro zone will increase expectations of policy easing there. Chinese factory activity expanded at the fastest pace in five months in May but euro zone manufacturing growth slowed more than initially thought, fuelling expectations that the European Central Bank will ease policy this week, Reuters reports. "The Chinese numbers were fractionally...How to smile your way to a promotion: Expert reveals which expressions make you ...
The eyes may be the window to the soul, but a smile can reveal more about a person than first thought. A body language expert has told MailOnline the tiniest tweak to a smile can change how a person is perceived - from looking up to appear flirtatious, to lowering the eyebrows to look more dominant and powerful, for example. Dr Peter Collett has pinpointed six types of smiles from the genuine ‘Duchenne’, where the corners of the mouth are pulled up and the muscles around the eyes contr...Six in ten don't get enough sleep: iPads, smartphones and other gadgets blamed f...
If you spent last night tossing and turning, you were not alone. Britain is in the midst of an epidemic of sleeplessness, an expert has warned. Research shows that almost six in ten of us are not getting enough sleep – a 50 per cent increase on just a year ago, The Daily Mail reports. Experts blame the rise on growing numbers of us using smartphones, tablet computers and other gadgets in bed and in the hour or two before turning in. The blue light emitted by the screens reduces drow...
