A man showed signs of a heart attack after swallowing a battery, doctors reported Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. An X-ray revealed the object, where it appeared to be stuck in the man’s stomach. Oddly, the EKG pattern was similar to one that’s commonly seen when someone is having a heart attack. However, the man had no other heart attack symptoms, including chest pain, and other test results showed no signs of any heart issues. Still, "swallowing batteries is really dangerous — particularly in kids — but there's not really a whole lot of cardiac things that we worry about," Laffin said.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Group of 20 major economies should work to provide trillions of dollars in trade financing for developing countries to ensure the recovery of the global economy from the COVID-19 pandemic, a top official with the World Trade Organization said on Saturday.

REUTERS/Florence LoWTO Deputy Director General Alan Wolff told G20 leaders it was critical to utilize trade to help underwrite the economy, facilitate trade in essential medical supplies, and reform the institutional framework for world trade. The lack of access to trade financing hits least developed countries hardest that already suffer from the high cost of financial transactions. The Geneva-based world trade body is in turmoil as the administration of outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump has blocked both selection of a new director general and the functioning of a dispute settlement body.

REUTERS/Florence LoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - World Bank President David Malpass said on Friday that G20 countries need to move forward with “deep, permanent debt relief” and some may need to make legislative changes to push private-sector creditors to support sovereign debt restructurings for distressed countries. Malpass, in remarks to a G20 finance ministers and central bank governors meeting on Friday, said that“Major jurisdictions may need to look to legislative changes to support faster progress if private creditors aren’t able to move forward on their own,” Malpass said, referring to the bank’s call to require public creditor institutions to disclose debt contracts and make refinancing agreements public. “Where good faith efforts to reach agreement with creditors are underway, tolerance of arrears accumulation may be necessary to support COVID-related spending.”

REUTERS/Florence LoBEIJING (Reuters) - China has extended debt relief to developing countries worth a combined $2.1 billion under the G20 framework, the highest among the group’s members in terms of the amount deferred, the country’s Finance Minister Liu Kun said on Friday. The China Development Bank [CHDB.UL], as a commercial creditor, signed agreements with developing countries involving $748 million by the end of September, said Liu. However, that is tiny compared with the debt developing countries owe China. The poorest countries’ official bilateral debt to G20 countries reached $178 billion in 2019, with 63% of the total owed to China, a World Bank study showed. China will also consider making donations to a multilateral debt relief facility if the World Bank decides to set one up, Liu said.

PARIS (Reuters) - French forces have killed Bah ag Moussa, a military leader of al Qaeda’s North Africa wing, during an operation in northeastern Mali, Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly said on Friday. “A historic figure of the jihadist movement in the Sahel, Bah ag Moussa is considered responsible for several attacks against Malian and international forces”, Parly said in a statement. Moussa, who was on the U.S. terrorism list, was killed on Tuesday after an operation involving ground troops and helicopters and comes after a series of operations that have seen French forces kill dozens of Islamist fighters in recent weeks. “This is a major success in the fight against terrorism,” Parly said. Former colonial power France has more than 5,100 personnel spread across the region with a large portion in Mali operating against rising militancy.

FILE PHOTO: A reflection of the U.S. flag is seen on the sign of the TikTok app in this illustration picture taken September 19, 2020. The Commerce Department said Nov. 1 it would comply with Judge Wendy Beetlestone’s order, but would “vigorously defend” its actions. Beetlestone enjoined the agency from barring data hosting within the United States for TikTok, content delivery services and other technical transactions. President Donald Trump’s administration contends that TikTok poses national security concerns as personal data collected on 100 million Americans who use the app could be obtained by China’s government. The U.S. Treasury Department said on Wednesday it wanted a resolution of national security concerns it has raised about TikTok before a Thursday divestiture deadline.

The Italy of November 2020 is unlike anything that has gone before in the age of mass tourism. Crawford stresses that the first week of November is always low season in Italy. With Covid-19 cases rising exponentially, on October 26, Italy issued a decree closing bars and restaurants at 6pm. The square's famous bars -- known for their live music and eye-watering prices as much as their beauty -- close at 6 p.m., but leave their chairs and tables in the square. I think after the vaccine things will return as they were -- in fact, I think there will only be positive changes.

There is also the riddle inherent in their design: What if (or, from Lanvin’s point of view, why don’t) certain things (e.g. T-shirt fabric) smell more like other things (e.g. If we assume, as it appears Lanvin does, that novel scents are intrinsically desirable in one’s clothes, why these scents? What is the cash value of a shirt that smells significantly more like cherry-flavored cough suppressant than other shirts? For how many days is a $590 T-shirt good before it turns, and is worth merely $295 (the shirts’ eventual discounted sale price)?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S Commerce Department said on Sunday it would “vigorously defend” an executive order that seeks to bar transactions with Chinese-owned short video-sharing app TikTok after a federal judge halted the action. FILE PHOTO: A reflection of the U.S. flag is seen on the sign of the TikTok app in this illustration picture taken September 19, 2020. REUTERS/Florence Lo/File PhotoU.S. District Judge Wendy Beetlestone on Friday blocked the Commerce Department order set to take effect on Nov. 12 that would have effectively barred ByteDance-owned TikTok from operating in the United States. Nichols is set to hold a hearing on Wednesday on the other aspects of the Commerce Department order that Beetlestone blocked on Friday. Beetlestone’s order, in a suit brought by three TikTok content creators, also blocks the app store download ban.

One of Bed Bath & Beyond's biggest initiatives is a plan to launch more than 10 private-label brands over an 18-month period beginning in March. With these efforts, the emphasis will be on the retailer's core Bed Bath & Beyond business, along with Buybuy Baby and Harmon Face Values. During the latest quarter, Bed Bath & Beyond reported a same-store sales gain — up 6% — for the first time since 2016, thanks to rapid e-commerce growth during the pandemic. Meantime, Bed Bath & Beyond has plans to revamp its loyalty program, which is known for frequent coupons. Bed Bath & Beyond forecasts a gross margin rate of about 35% in 2021, expanding to more than 38% by 2023, as it leans into its higher-margin, owned brands and closes unprofitable locations.

Florence Lo | ReutersChinese state media has accused the U.S. of "hooligan logic" in its push for certain conditions in the TikTok deal and cast doubt over whether Beijing will approve the terms. The Chinese tabloid completely changed its tune just one day after saying it expects Beijing to approve the "reasonable" deal. Oracle's Executive Vice President Ken Glueck released a statement to CNBC shortly after Trump's remarks that said Americans will have a "majority" of control over TikTok Global. One was that Americans would make up four out of five of the board seats of TiKTok Global, while ByteDance's CEO and founder Zhang Yiming will take the remaining one. The Chinese tabloid claimed that "TikTok and Douyin should have the same source code, this means the US can get to know the operations of Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok."
