Solar panels are seen at the Desert Stateline project near Nipton, California, U.S. August 16, 2021. REUTERS/Bridget BennettSept 22 (Reuters) - A U.S. solar industry group warned on Wednesday that tariffs on imported panels from three Asian countries would jeopardize nearly 30% of the solar capacity the nation is expected to install over the next two years. "We cannot emphasize enough how damaging these tariffs would be to our companies and the entire American solar industry," said the letter signed by nearly 200 solar companies. The tariffs would jeopardize 18 gigawatts (GW) of solar projects by 2023, the SEIA said, enough to power about 3.4 million homes. SEIA for years has opposed tariffs on solar imports because those products have fueled the sector's growth.

SINGAPORE (Reuters) -Oil prices climbed more than $1 on Wednesday, extending overnight gains after industry data showed U.S. crude stocks fell more than expected last week in the wake of two hurricanes, highlighting tight supply as demand improves. “Crude is supported by the API weekly report, which noted a bigger-than-expected decline in U.S. crude oil stocks,” said Ravindra Rao, vice president of commodities at Kotak Securities. “Prices are still rangebound ahead of the EIA weekly report due later today and ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s monetary policy decision ... The market will be watching for data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration on Wednesday to confirm the big drops in crude and fuel stocks. Global gas prices are expected to break records this winter as a hot northern hemisphere summer leaves inventories low in key markets.

Panama has administered 5.3 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine and authorities say it is close to herd immunity.

REUTERS/Jo Yong-Hak/File PhotoMELBOURNE, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Oil prices rose around 1% on Wednesday, extending overnight gains, after industry data showed U.S. crude stocks fell more than expected last week in the wake of two hurricanes, highlighting tight supply as demand improves. Brent crude futures climbed 68 cents, or 0.9%, to $75.04 a barrel, after gaining 44 cents on Tuesday. U.S. crude stocks fell by 6.1 million barrels for the week ended Sept. 17, market sources said, citing figures from the American Petroleum Institute on Tuesday. That was a much bigger decline than the 2.4 million barrel drop in crude inventories which 10 analysts polled by Reuters had expected on average. The market will be watching out for data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration on Wednesday to confirm the big drops in crude and fuel stocks.

Hong Kong (CNN Business) It's been nearly two years since Norris Fong has seen his family back in his native Singapore. Like many Asian countries , Hong Kong has embraced a "zero Covid" strategy, placing emphasis on social distancing, limiting travel and shutting most non-residents out. No end in sightBut for many in Hong Kong, the grass is still greener on the other side of the South China Sea. Reopening to the mainland has been crucial for businesses who view Hong Kong as a gateway to the vast market there. In some cases, the quarantine restrictions in Hong Kong have sped up the decisions for job-seekers to head to Singapore, said Dass.

WASHINGTON — A long-delayed bill to provide financial support to U.S. government personnel believed to be suffering from Havana Syndrome is headed to President Joe Biden’s desk after the House passed it Tuesday. NBC News reported that diplomats affected by Havana Syndrome voiced frustration over continuing challenges in getting medical care and benefits in a tense hourlong conversation with Secretary of State Antony Blinken this month. The first incidents of the syndrome “medically confirmed” by the U.S. government were in Havana in 2016 and 2017. Many U.S. workers thought to be suffering from Havana Syndrome reported hearing a loud sound and feeling pressure in their heads. For years, those who have come forward reporting potential Havana Syndrome have complained about immense bureaucratic hurdles to getting proper medical care.

The airlines' "Northeast Alliance" partnership was announced in July 2020 and approved by the U.S. Transportation Department six months later, shortly before the end of the Trump administration. The government is planning to allege in the lawsuit that the partnership between the two airlines could lead to higher fares and hurt competition, the newspaper reported. American Airlines said that it has not been notified that a lawsuit was coming. The lawsuit is the second action the Biden administration has taken recently to ensure competition in the skies.

REUTERS/Jeenah MoonCHICAGO/LONDON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - America's reopening to international air travelers can't come soon enough for U.S. and European airlines which have sorely missed the lucrative transatlantic market. "The transatlantic market is a key profit generator for the main European legacy airline groups," said Bernstein analyst Daniel Roeska. LEAN WINTERThe lifting of restrictions coincides with the onset of winter season, historically a lean period for international travel, when many airlines tend to make a loss. In the United States, though, airlines fear the travel recovery could by blunted by the Delta variant of the coronavirus. In early September, U.S. airline passenger volumes for international travel were just 44% of the pre-pandemic levels, according to data from trade body Airlines for America.

Maura Tierney, 56, is an actress who co-starred in TV’s “ER” and “The Affair” and in the films “Primary Colors” and “Insomnia.” She co-stars with Jeff Daniels in Showtime’s new series “American Rust.” She spoke with Marc Myers. I was painfully shy growing up, so much so I sometimes found it difficult to speak. As a child, I spent a lot of time in my head, fantasizing and daydreaming. I had to work hard at coming out of my shell—or at least pretending not to have one.

TOKYO (Reuters) -Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) is pulling back from U.S. retail banking with the $8 billion sale of MUFG Union Bank (MUB) to U.S. Bancorp as digital technology and industry consolidation squeeze out smaller lenders.

ConocoPhillips is set to become the second-largest oil and gas producer in the contiguous U.S. following its $9.5 billion purchase of Royal Dutch Shell PLC’s assets in the Permian Basin. The company’s acquisition of 225,000 net acres in West Texas is a big bet that drilling in the busiest American oil field will underpin returns for a decade. It is also the latest example of how competition to consolidate is reshuffling the pecking order among top U.S. shale drillers.

Many independent pharmacies offer personalized services including home delivery to meet customers’ needs.

REUTERS/Lee Celano LC/File PhotoSept 21 (Reuters) - George Holliday, the plumber who shot video of Los Angeles police officers beating Black motorist Rodney King in 1991, has died at a hospital in California due to complications from COVID-19, a friend said. Long before the advent of the Black Lives Matter movement, the name Rodney King was synonymous with the use of excessive force in policing minority groups. The video of King's beating, shot in grainy black and white, was played on hundreds of television stations. On March 3, 1991, Holliday stood on his balcony and used his Sony Video8 Handycam to record the police officers beating King. King - who was on parole for robbery - had led police on a high-speed chase through Los Angeles.

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is safe and effective for children 5 to 11, the companies announced, but parents may be wary even if the F.D.A. Uptake among older children has lagged, and polling indicates reservations among a significant number of parents. Only about 40 percent of children ages 12 to 15 have been fully vaccinated so far, compared with 66 percent of adults, according to federal data. Image If authorized by the F.D.A., the vaccine could be a game changer for millions of American families with young children. The “definitely not” group grew to about 25 percent in parents of children ages 5 to 11, and 30 percent among parents of under-5s.
