Reuters also reviewed data from 10 community-based air monitoring projects by residents worried that government air-quality assessments are inaccurate. About 120 million Americans live in counties that have no EPA pollution monitors at all for small particle pollution, according to agency data. Other Philadelphia monitors were either upwind or too far away to detect the explosion’s pollution, according to the EPA data, which shows wind direction and speed. A community project in New York City, for example, has deployed up to 150 air monitors over the past decade. Overall, between October 2016 and February 2017, the community monitors detected 1,426 episodes of elevated levels of particulate matter, or 12 times what government monitors recorded.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden’s promise to end U.S. fossil fuel subsidies worth billions of dollars a year for drillers and miners could be hard to keep due to resistance from lawmakers in a narrowly divided Congress, including from within his own party. Biden has said axing fossil fuel subsidies will generate money to help pay for his broader $2 trillion climate plan. It would help establish the United States as a global leader on climate, potentially helping convince other big emitters to axe fossil fuel subsidies. Estimates of the value of fossil fuel subsidies, which mainly take the form of tax breaks, vary. Biden and Congress will be under pressure to reduce the federal deficit by cutting such tax breaks.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States’ anti-drug policy in Latin America needs to change if Washington is to effectively combat a problem worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic, a U.S. congressional commission will say in a bipartisan report coming out this week. The 117-page report urges “smarter” interagency policies led by the U.S. State Department to reduce the supply of dangerous drugs. “An increasingly complex threat requires a more agile, adaptive long-term strategy,” the Western Hemisphere Drug Policy Commission said in the report, seen by Reuters ahead of its release. For example, some efforts to eradicate production of coca have moved production, and associated violence, to new communities. And law enforcement efforts targeting drug-gang leaders, or kingpins, have at times fractured drug cartels, leading to more violence as gang members fight for control.

Pro-abortion activist Lupita Ruiz poses for a photo during an interview with Reuters, in Mexico City, Mexico November 11, 2020. Catalina Martinez, director for Latin America and the Caribbean at the Center for Reproductive Rights, a legal advocacy organization, said Argentina’s example inspired protests across Latin America. Outrage at worsening gender violence in Latin America, where the number of femicides has doubled in five years, has also spread awareness of the abortion rights movement and fueled demands for recognition of women’s rights in a conservative, male-dominated society. As in the United States, where conservatives have made gains in restricting a woman’s right to an abortion, there is pushback in Latin America against the calls for greater liberalization. To Briceno, Brazil’s shift to the right under Bolsonaro, who has vowed to veto any pro-abortion bills, was a reminder to push even harder for abortion rights.

In November, Elon Musk's Tesla brought out a novelty tequila called "Tesla Tequila." Tesla CEO Elon Musk first used the word "Teslaquila" in a jokey April 2018 tweet that imagined Tesla had gone bankrupt. Tequila is a designation of of origin, meaning to call your drink "tequila" you have to produce it in Mexico. "[The] name 'Teslaquila' evokes the word Tequila ... (and) Tequila is a protected word," the CRT argued in November 2018. "We welcome Elon Musk and the Tesla tequila brand."

"Vaccine optimism, impressive Chinese factory data and the prospect of continuing fiscal and monetary stimulus is keeping the mood upbeat," CityIndex analyst Fiona Cincotta said. Global equity markets rose on Tuesday, extending the record-breaking gains of the previous month, after strong factory data pointed to a robust recovery in China, while progress on more vaccine candidates reinforced the optimism of the past few weeks, although oil slipped. "After a phenomenal November run-up European markets are broadly resuming gains at the start of December, a traditionally strong month for equities," CityIndex analyst Fiona Cincotta said in a note. "Vaccine optimism, impressive Chinese factory data and the prospect of continuing fiscal and monetary stimulus is keeping the mood upbeat." "Nonetheless this latest fracas does not bode well for collective cohesion in 2021 as vaccine optimism abounds and producers anticipate a strong recovery," she said.

(Reuters) - Amgen Inc, UCB SA and Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc on Monday launched a global trial to identify whether any of three different drugs can reduce the severity of COVID-19 in hospitalized patients by moderating the immune system’s response to the disease. The three compounds “have a plausible biologic rationale in terms of effect on immune response or the hyper-immune response that some people develop,” said Amgen research chief David Reese. The multiple candidates will be tested against a placebo with all trial patients also receiving standard care. Other drugs that work in a variety of ways, including antivirals, medicines that also modulate immune response and vascular agents may enter the study in coming months. The COVID R&D trial will enroll both hospitalized intensive care unit and non-ICU patients.

Americans celebrate a Thanksgiving Day transformed by the coronavirus pandemic, with the traditional Macy's parade limited to a television-only event and many families resigned to meeting on video for turkey dinner.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Congress on Monday began a two-week sprint to rescue the federal government from a possible shutdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, the first major test since the election of whether Republicans and Democrats intend to cooperate. Still unclear is whether Republican President Donald Trump, who was defeated in the Nov. 3 election, will cooperate with the effort underway in Congress. Trump already has warned that he would veto a wide-ranging defense authorization bill Congress aims to pass if a provision is included stripping Confederate leaders’ names from military bases. If they cannot be resolved by Dec. 11, agency shutdowns could be avoided only by Congress passing a stop-gap funding bill. Republicans have deemed that proposal exorbitant and have been sticking with calls for a scaled-down $500 billion menu of initiatives.

PREVIEWThe roster of advancing shares has grown as a brightening economic outlook helped cyclical sectors outperform the dominant technology stocks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average reached a milestone of 30000. RDM recently bought shares of an exchange-traded fund tracking the equal-weight S&P 500, he said. This effectively de-emphasizes the technology sector while placing more importance than the traditional S&P 500 on groups like financials, industrials and energy.

REUTERS/Jane Rosenberg/File PhotoMEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s attorney general is seeking the extradition from the United States of a former security minister wanted on corruption charges, but only after his U.S. trial is concluded, a local newspaper reported on Sunday. Reuters could not independently confirm the report by Milenio, which cited officials with the attorney general’s office. Garcia Luna pled not guilty last month to U.S. charges stemming from a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme allegedly designed to boost the Sinaloa cartel once headed by jailed drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. Garcia Luna is accused of taking suitcases of cash from the cartel to ensure safe passage for its drugs as well as passing on information about its rivals. Citing sources, Milenio said Garcia Luna would be tried in the United States before being extradited to Mexico.

Milenio newspaper reported earlier on Sunday that an extradition request would follow the conclusion of the former minister’s trial in the United States.

BUENOS AIRES — Argentine justice officials are investigating the death of soccer star Diego Maradona and ordered the search of properties of his personal doctor on Sunday, a local prosecutor’s office said. The search order was requested by prosecutors in the affluent Buenos Aires suburb San Isidro and signed by a local judge, according to a statement issued by the prosecutor’s office. “By virtue of the evidence that was collected, it was considered necessary to request searches at the home and office of doctor Leopoldo Luque,” the prosecutor’s office said in the statement. The prosecutor’s office provided no information on what prompted the investigation. While collecting goals and trophies on the field, Maradona spent most of his life battling drug addictions, alcohol abuse, weight issues and other health problems throughout the 1990s.

Juarez-Alonzo, who is involved in local climate activism, described the free college plan as a "hostage situation," in which his future was being funded by the very thing he thought would kill it. "I wasn't trying to bank on the fact that our governor had promised free college, because I didn't think the money was always going to be there," he said. Lujan Grisham's office said it was too busy handling the Covid-19 crisis to comment on whether she still plans to pursue the free college plan.

Pope's new cardinal in Mexico known for indigenous outreach

Slideshow ( 3 images )MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Among the new cardinals formally installed by Pope Francis on Saturday is an outspoken Mexican cleric who has spent decades ministering to the mostly poor, indigenous communities near the country’s southern border with Guatemala. The 80-year-old Arizmendi, author of more than 30 books and a regular newspaper columnist, is just past the cut-off age to be able to vote in future papal conclaves, where new popes are elected. Over the past decade, he has also railed against what he described as the spread of “homosexualism” from cities to rural areas. The most high-profile new cardinal is Wilton Gregory, the 72-year-old archbishop of Washington D.C. and first-ever African American selected. While Europe still has the largest share of cardinals under the age of 80 with 41%, that is down from 52% in 2013 when Francis became the first Latin American pope.
