Yet that relative security cannot mask the scale of the challenge the Taliban face in setting Afghanistan on a path of economic growth and stability. The Taliban refuse to cede to these demands, saying that they respect all Afghans' rights within the framework of their interpretation of Islamic law. The last time the Taliban ruled Afghanistan in the late 1990s, women could not work, girls were banned from school and strict Islamic law was brutally enforced, including through public executions. The U.N.'s mission to Afghanistan said in a recent review the group was limiting dissent by arresting journalists, activists and protesters. "Now it's at the whims of the (Taliban) leader in Kandahar and also at the whims of those who are leading on his behalf ... that's the problem, it's the unpredictability."

REUTERS/Denis Balibouse/Illustration/File PhotoAug 11 (Reuters) - Over an earnings period that appeared to signal the end of Netflix envy, Walt Disney Co (DIS.N) restored hopes that growth in the streaming business will continue. But Disney, which edged past Netflix as streaming leader by global subscribers last quarter, is the outlier among its media peers. In recent earnings reports, traditional media companies touted stable and shrinking businesses like linear television as profit centers to weather economic uncertainty. That view is spreading across the media business. But past may not be prologue in the streaming business, analysts warned.

The Israeli military supplied videos and radar images which it said showed an Islamic Jihad rocket veering off course soon after being launched on Saturday, heading to the ground where they said it killed five people including four children. But an Islamic Jihad spokesman said it was conducting an investigation. Hamas briefly issued an order instructing freelance journalists not to report claims that casualties may have been caused by Palestinian rockets. "Their disregard for human life was tragic – as multiple failed rocket launches led to the deaths of innocent Palestinian children in Gaza," Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz said. "To say it was an Arab rocket, or an Israeli rocket, we don't know," he said.

KABUL/PESHAWAR, Aug 11 (Reuters) - A prominent Taliban cleric, Sheikh Rahimullah Haqqani, was killed in an attack in a seminary in Kabul when the attacker detonated explosives hidden in a plastic artificial leg on Thursday, according to officials and Taliban sources. "Very sadly informed that respected cleric (Sheikh Rahimullah Haqqani) was martyred in a cowardly attack by enemies," said Bilal Karimi, a spokesperson for the Taliban administration. "We are investigating who this ... person was and who had brought him to this important place to enter the personal office of Sheikh Rahimullah Haqqani. Haqqani was a prominent cleric in the Taliban who had survived previous attacks, including a large blast in the northern Pakistani city of Peshawar in 2020 claimed by the Islamic State that killed at least seven people. However, regular attacks, many of them claimed by Islamic State, have taken place in recent months, often targeting religious and ethnic minorities as well as Taliban leaders.

Becca Balint, Vermont's state Senate president, has won the Democratic nomination for the state's at-large congressional seat, NBC News projects. The victory makes her likely to become the first woman to represent the heavily Democratic state in Congress. Vermont is the only state that has never had a female member of its congressional delegation. Sanders, an independent and a former at-large representative, was elected to the Senate in 2006, the same year Welch was elected to the House. The state has only three representatives in Congress — its two senators and an at-large House member.

ISLAMABAD, Aug 10 (Reuters) - More than 70 economists and experts, including Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz, called for Washington and other nations to release Afghanistan's central bank assets in a letter sent to U.S. President Joe Biden on Wednesday. "In order to mitigate the humanitarian crisis and set the Afghan economy on a path toward recovery, we urge you to allow DAB to reclaim its international reserves." The Taliban say they respect rights in accordance with their interpretation of Islamic law and that individual abuses would be investigated. Despite their widely differing stances, both sides are engaged in detailed discussions over plans to possibly release the central bank assets, around $7 billion of which is held in the United States. Key sticking points remain in the banking talks, in particular over U.S. objections to the Taliban's appointment of a deputy governor of the central bank who is subject to U.S. sanctions.

Image Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken departing the Philippines on Saturday to head to South Africa. “Everybody’s coming to say: ‘Support me!’”Image Foreign Minister Sergey V. Lavrov of Russia at the Russian Embassy in Ethiopia in July. Last week, the first grain-filled vessels began to depart from Ukraine since Russia’s invasion under a hard-won deal. When reports emerged that the Senegalese president, Macky Sall, would visit Ukraine at the end of August, he was quick to issue a statement denying them. “We want to make our own enemies,” he said in a speech during Mr. Lavrov’s visit.

There are also plans for the U.S. to contribute $150 million in new humanitarian development assistance to Africa pending congressional approval, she added. "Regardless of how you feel about Russia, we all have a powerful common interest in mitigating the impact of the war in Ukraine on food security," she added. French President Emmanuel Macron used similar language last week when he described the global food crisis as one of Russia's "weapons of war" during a visit to Cameroon. Thomas-Greenfield on Friday refuted that claim, instead suggesting that Russia had deliberately taken steps to disrupt global food supply chains while blaming the West. "We've seen no indication that Russia will accept a diplomatic solution" to the war in Ukraine, she said.

Spotify does not deserve the same treatment as other streaming companies, according to a growing number of people on Wall Street. Shares of the streaming company are down roughly 50% this year, as investors, mindful of an era of rising interest rates, dumped shares of tech stocks and other growth names. The streaming company has to deal with powerful music labels that could renegotiate deals and limit gains in Spotify's profits, according to Pivotal. "There's two possible explanations for this lower gross margin result," Ek said at the event, according to a FactSet transcript. "If that's true, then gross margin should expand next year," said Mahaney.

A possible model could be the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund, a World Bank-administered fund created to get donations of foreign development assistance to Kabul, the U.S. source added. "No agreement has been reached yet," said Shah Mehrabi, an Afghan-American economics professor who is on the Afghan central bank's supreme council. The U.S. State Department and Switzerland's Federal Department of Foreign Affairs declined to comment; the Afghan central bank did not respond to requests for comment. The U.S. source denied the proposed trust fund would amount to a parallel central bank. "You need a central bank regulating the value of the currency, regulating prices, ensuring liquidity for imports ... this is not optional.

By trying to recast the U.S. as the world’s pro-abortion power, officials will weaken the legitimacy of U.S. foreign policy and undermine America’s standing in the world. A foreign policy pushing for abortion abroad is also a strategic blunder with long-term consequences. According to international abortion advocacy organizations, only Iceland, Sweden, the Netherlands and the U.K. have widely available abortion on request throughout gestation. Abortion is freely available in state-run hospitals, and the Communist Party has used compulsory abortion as a population-control measure. Perhaps Dobbs offers lessons about the merits of stronger federalism at home and robust geopolitical pluralism in the free world.

YouTube and Snap are considered most at risk to the TikTok threat. In October 2019, when asked if TikTok was a friend or foe, Snap CEO Evan Spiegel chose the former. Insider Intelligence ranks it as the third biggest social platform after Facebook and Instagram. Its video platform competes more directly with social-entertainment apps like YouTube versus Snap's messaging product. TikTok is already passing YouTube in terms of time spent, with the average user spending 23.6 hours per month compared to 23.2 hours on YouTube, per App Annie.

Russia and Ukraine signed a landmark deal on Friday to reopen Ukrainian Black Sea ports for grain exports. The war has stalled Kyiv's exports, leaving dozens of ships stranded and some 20 million tonnes of grain stuck in silos. The United States also wants to see China help combat the global food crisis, James O'Brien, head of the U.S. State Department's Office of Sanctions Coordination, told reporters. It dwarfs those of the United States, the world's top grain exporter, which were estimated at 57.8 million tonnes. "We believe it's essential that food, including grain, go everywhere where it's needed," deputy U.N. spokesman Farhan Haq said on Friday.

A version of this story first appeared in CNN Business' Before the Bell newsletter. London (CNN Business) It wasn't long ago that Wall Street would have bristled at such grim news out of Netflix: Between April and June, the company lost 970,000 subscribers . "We're talking about losing 1 million instead of losing 2 million," Chairman Reed Hastings said on a call with analysts. Looking ahead: Netflix still has work to do to convince investors that it's on the right track. The CNN Business Fear & Greed Index has been improving but remains in "fear" territory.

Overall, Reed Hastings, a Netflix co-chief executive, called it “less bad results.” He added that “it’s tough losing one million subscribers and calling it a success.”Netflix, which now has about 220.7 million subscribers worldwide, told investors that it could add back one million in the coming quarter. In the second quarter, Netflix lost 1.3 million subscribers in the United States and Canada, compared with a loss of 400,000 for the same period in 2021. Revenue grew 23 percent in the Asia-Pacific region, where the company added 1.1 million subscribers. “Hustle,” the Adam Sandler basketball movie, generated the most user interest in the quarter, with 186 million hours watched.
