U.S. President Joe Biden speaks to reporters before departing for Newark, New Jersey, from the Delaware Air National Guard Base, New Castle, Delaware, U.S., October 25, 2021. The United States has not met with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations at the presidential level since Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump, attended an ASEAN-U.S. meeting in Manila in 2017. A day after the ASEAN summit, Biden will participate in the broader East Asia Summit, which brings together ASEAN and other nations in the Indo-Pacific region, a senior U.S. administration official said. U.S. officials have, however, avoided specific mention of China in the run-up to the meetings as they work to set up a virtual summit between Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping later this year. While planning to provide a modest sum to promote trade with ASEAN, Biden has given no sign of any plan to return to a regional trade framework Trump withdrew from in 2017.

Biden to attend ASEAN summit Trump skipped after 2017

The U.S. embassy in Brunei told Reuters Biden will lead the U.S. delegation for the ASEAN-United States summit, part of a series of ASEAN leaders' meetings this week. The United States has not joined the meetings at the presidential level since Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump, attended an ASEAN-U.S. meeting in Manila in 2017. Analysts say Biden's meeting with the 10-nation bloc reflects his administration's efforts to engage allies and partners in a collective effort to push back against China. U.S. officials, however, have not made specific mention of China in the run-up to the meeting as they work to set up a virtual summit between Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping later this year. They expect Biden to focus on collaboration on Covid-19 vaccine distribution, climate, supply chains and infrastructure.

Japan's Emperor Akihito (R) toasts with South Korea's President Roh Tae-woo during an imperial banquet hosted by the emperor at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, Japan, May 24, 1990, in this photo released by Kyodo. In response and to distance himself from Chun, Roh issued the "June 29 Declaration", announcing significant political reforms including the direct election of the president. As the original driving force behind the 1988 Seoul Olympics, Roh helped South Korea forge a new international identity. Local media dubbed it the "trial of the century" as it dug up many of the dirtiest secrets from South Korea's era of strongman rule. Son Roh Jae-heon is a certified lawyer in New York state and the president of the East Asia Culture Center in Seoul.

One research note, for example, showed that only a few "abuse categories" for reporting hate speech in Afghanistan had been translated into the local language Pashto. "Furthermore, the Pashto translation of Hate Speech does not seem to be accurate," the author wrote, pointing out that most of the sub-categories of hate speech for a user to report were still in English. But AI models need to be trained to detect and remove content such as hate speech using sample words or phrases known as "classifiers." The Facebook spokesperson said the company added hate speech classifiers for Hindi in 2018 and for Bengali in 2020. A key flaw in a troubled regionIndeed, Facebook's language deficit may be most stark in one of the world's most unstable regions: the Middle East.

For more than a century, the nation grew rapidly on their coal. As countries and companies around the world pledge to reduce carbon emissions, coal is now a liability. Regulators in West Virginia just opted to make expensive upgrades to three coal-fired power plants rather than shut them down. Appalachia could be a center of clean manufacturing, electric cars and tourism based on the region’s stunning natural beauty. One of the first real flickers of hope for getting anything close came from the Biden administration’s Build Back Better agenda, which included proposals that echoed many of Reimagine Appalachia’s.

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/FilesWASHINGTON, Oct 26 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden will announce plans to provide up to $102 million to expand the U.S. strategic partnership with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) at a virtual summit with the 10-nation bloc on Tuesday, the White House said. The U.S. funding will go towards health, climate, economic and education programs, a White House factsheet said. Another $17.5 million is earmarked for education projects and $4 million to promote gender equality and equity, it said. Biden's participation in the virtual summit will mark the first time in four years that Washington will engage at the top level with a bloc that it sees as key to its strategy of pushing back against China.

DUBAI, Oct 25 (Reuters) - HSBC group chief executive Noel Quinn said on Monday the bank has helped clients issue $170 billion worth of green bonds this year. Proceeds from green bonds are typically used on projects to cut greenhouse gas emissions, adapt to climate change, increase energy efficiency or expand the use of renewable energy. “This year, alone, we have already helped our customers issue $170 billion of green bonds with a broader range of structures and a greater variety of issuers than ever before,” Quinn said in a speech at the Middle East Green Initiative summit in Saudi Arabia.

Over the weekend the strongest storm to ever hit the West Coast slammed onshore, packing strong winds, record rainfall and heavy Sierra snow. Over the weekend in California, a storm system dropped to a barometric pressure of 945.2 mb, making it the strongest storm to affect the Pacific Northwest on record. As the storm system roared into the region, it dropped 4.02 inches of rain in downtown San Francisco, making it the wettest October day on record. On Tuesday, the storm system will transfer its energy to a developing coastal storm off the Atlantic coast and affect the Northeast and New England. On Wednesday, this storm system will shift east bringing the risk for severe storms to portions of the Gulf Coast.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman gives a speech from his office as he addresses the Saudi Green Initiative forum opening ceremony, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, October 23, 2021. Bandar Algaloud/Courtesy of Saudi Royal Court/Handout via REUTERSRIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia’s crown prince launched a Middle East Green Initiative on Monday which he said aimed to invest 39 billion riyals ($10.4 billion) to reduce carbon emissions in the region and protect the environment. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said the kingdom, which is the world’s top oil exporter, would contribute 15% of the funds and would work with other states and development funds on the funding and execution of the initiatives. Saudi Arabia would work to establish a regional carbon capture and storage centre, a regional early storm warning centre and a regional cloud seeding programme, he also said. On Saturday, the crown prince pledged that Saudi Arabia would reach “net zero” emissions by 2060 at the Saudi Green Initiative forum.

RIYADH (Reuters) -Saudi Arabia’s crown prince launched a Middle East Green Initiative on Monday which he said aimed to secure 39 billion riyals ($10.4 billion) for an investment fund and clean energy project as part of efforts to reduce regional carbon emissions. No investment figure was provided for the Middle East Green Initiative. Saudi Arabia has said its own Saudi Green Initiative programme would involve investments of over 700 billion riyals ($190 billion) by 2030. Kerry said the private sector has to step in to help governments achieve emission targets, adding carbon emissions are not about politics or ideologies, but “about science”. On Saturday, Prince Mohammed pledged that Saudi Arabia would reach “net zero” emissions by 2060.

REUTERS/Andrew Kelly/File Photo(Reuters) -Citigroup Inc on Monday warned of significant charges related to the closing of its consumer banking business in South Korea, months after announcing its exit from 13 markets across Asia, Europe, Middle East and Africa. The charges will largely comprise payouts to employees related to voluntary termination benefits, discussions for which have already started with employee unions, Citigroup said, adding the charges will be spread across till the end of 2023. The bank said it was, however, unable to estimate the charge it will take. Besides South Korea, the bank will also divest its retail banking arms in Australia, Bahrain, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, it said in April.

These gaps can allow abusive posts to proliferate in the countries where Facebook itself has determined the risk of real-world harm is high. Jones said Facebook added hate speech classifiers for Hindi in 2018 and Bengali in 2020, and classifiers for violence and incitement in Hindi and Bengali this year. She said Facebook also now has hate speech classifiers in Urdu but not Pashto. Facebook's human review of posts, which is crucial for nuanced problems like hate speech, also has gaps across key languages, the documents show. A Facebook presentation from January, included in the documents, concluded "there is a huge gap in the Hate Speech reporting process in local languages" for users in Afghanistan.

* Turkish lira last at 9.72 versus dollar* Other EMFX rise against weaker dollar* EM stocks flatOct 25 (Reuters) - Turkey’s lira sank to new lows on Monday as tensions between Ankara and the West combined with unconventional monetary policy and rising inflation, while most other emerging market currencies firmed against weaker dollar. Lira volatility gauges jumped, dollar bonds fell, local 10-year yields moved closed to three-year highs hit last week, flirting with the 20% level. That also means: a monetary policy U-turn seems less likely now. A weaker dollar helped other EM currencies, with the Chinese yuan up almost 0.1%, while the South African rand gained 0.3%.

DeSantis on Sunday reiterated to Fox News that he wants to pay police officers who move to Florida a $5,000 bonus. Ron DeSantis said he wants to pass legislation that would give police officers who relocate to his state $5,000. The bill would offer a $5,000 bonus to out-of-state law enforcement. Earlier this month, DeSantis said he planned to wage a lawsuit against the federal government over vaccine mandates. Earlier this month, DeSantis and the Florida Department of Health fined one county $3,570,000 for violating the state's ban on vaccine passports.

REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins/FilesBEIJING, Oct 25 (Reuters) - President Xi Jinping vowed on Monday that China would always uphold world peace and international rules, amid concerns expressed by the United States and other countries over its increasing assertiveness globally. In a speech marking the 50th anniversary of China's return to the United Nations, Xi said it would always be the "builder of world peace" and a "protector of international order", state news agency Xinhua reported. In 1971, the United Nations voted to recognise the People's Republic of China as the sole representative of China, expelling Taiwan, which had held the U.N. seat in the name of the Republic of China, its official title. The ministry called on the United Nations "not to repeatedly succumb to the political pressure of the Chinese government" and exclude Taiwan, it added. He also said all countries should always abide by international rules, and not only when the rules suit them.

CNN's publication of these warnings from within Facebook comes seven months after a Facebook team initially shared an internal report entitled "Coordinated Social Harm." The report, distributed in March, said that armed groups in Ethiopia were using the platform to incite violence against ethnic minorities in the "context of civil war." Its two largest ethnic groups, the Oromo and Amhara, make up more than 60% of the population. "I've seen a lot of a lot of hate speech, that definitely does fuel ethnic violence in Ethiopia," Neguede said. A Facebook page with an INSA-affiliated administrator was also flagged in internal Facebook documents in March, but was not recommended for removal.

"We've been combatting human trafficking on our platform for many years and our goal remains to prevent anyone who seeks to exploit others from having a home on our platform." CNN has reviewed internal Facebook documents included in disclosures made to the Securities and Exchange Commission and provided to Congress in redacted form by former Facebook employee-turned-whistleblower Frances Haugen 's legal counsel. Stone directed CNN to a letter Facebook sent last summer to several United Nations representatives about its efforts to combat human trafficking on its platform. Internal Facebook documents show that Facebook launched an expanded "Human Exploitation Policy" on May 29, 2019 that included a prohibition on domestic servitude content related to recruitment, facilitation and exploitation. And although Facebook researchers have heavily investigated the issue, domestic servitude content appears to still be active and easily found on Instagram.

Power-generating windmill turbines are seen at the Eneco Luchterduinen offshore wind farm near Amsterdam, Netherlands September 26, 2017. Siemens Gamesa (SGREN.MC) and Dominion (D.N) will invest $200 million to build the blade factory in Portsmouth, Virginia, near a marine cargo space Dominion is leasing to build turbines for its project, the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project, or CVOW. President Joe Biden has set a goal of 30 gigawatts of offshore wind power by 2030 as part of a plan to decarbonize the power grid by 2035. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat running in the Nov. 2 election for governor, has been supportive of wind power. Glenn Youngkin, a Republican candidate for governor, supports wind power, but has also said it could raise consumer power bills and has criticized the state's clean energy law.
