Oil sheds more than $1 as China data disappoints

Oil demand could stay on the downtrend for the rest of the year as the threat of COVID-19 restrictions encourages precautionary savings and reduces oil consumption, he added. Oil prices rebounded more than 3% last week after a damaged oil pipeline component disrupted output at several offshore Gulf of Mexico platforms and as investors pared back expectations for interest rate increases in the United States. The rig count, an early indicator of future output, has been slow to grow with oil production only seen recovering from pandemic-related cuts next year. Global oil markets remained supported by tight supplies in the run-up to EU sanctions on Russian crude oil and refined product supplies this winter.

Hopes of smaller rate hikes on signs that U.S. inflation may be peaking helped Wall Street clock up its fourth straight week of gains by Friday. "I do think it's going to be Fed driven if there is another leg down in markets. "I don't think (Fed Chair) Powell is going to say that, I don't think the minutes are going to indicate that," Armstrong said. Fed Rate Futures and StocksU.S. FUTURES EASES&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures were both down around 0.5% after last week's gains. The cut in Chinese interest rates failed to stop Chinese blue chips (.CSI300) easing 0.13%, while the yuan and bond yields also slipped.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan (.MIAPJ0000PUS) was flat, having bounced 0.9% last week. Japan's Nikkei (.N225) rose 1.1% as data showed the economy grew an annualised 2.2% in the second quarter, just a touch under estimates. Hopes for a soft economic landing will also get a health check from U.S. retail sales data that are expected to show a sharp slowdown in spending in July.

"Our teams assess our policies, training, processes and resources on an ongoing basis to ensure that they are comprehensive," it said. Reuters spoke to about two dozen Dalit tech workers in the United States who said discrimination had followed them overseas. "Significant caste discrimination exists in the United States," said Mayuri Raja, a Google software engineer who is a member of the AWU and advocates for lower-caste colleagues. Google reiterated to Reuters that caste discrimination fell under national origin, ancestry and ethnic discrimination. South Carolina law professor Brown expects no immediate resolution to the debate over of whether companies should reference caste.

The suspect in Saturday's deadly vehicle collision with a crowd in Pennsylvania said it was intentional and detailed a subsequent fatal attack on his mother, police said Sunday. In a criminal complaint filed Sunday, Pennsylvania State Police investigators say defendant Reyes confessed to both homicides — an estimated 2 miles apart — after he was informed of his right not to cooperate. A trooper asked whether he was aware of what happened outside a bar in Berwick, where a vehicle struck 18 people early Saturday. Troopers quote Reyes as saying he was "speeding up" as the Honda Accord he drove struck the crowd. Reyes was denied bail and was being held at the Columbia County Correctional Facility, state police said Sunday.

Salman Rushdie's recovery is "headed in the right direction," his agent told The New York Times Sunday. Rushdie was stabbed 10 times in an attack reports say may be linked to Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps. Rushdie was attacked Friday as he took the stage to give a lecture at the Chautauqua Institution in New York. "The road to recovery has begun," Andrew Wylie, Rushdie's literary agent, said in a text message to The New York Times. "A 24-year-old born in the United States did not come up with Salman Rushdie as a target on his own," a Middle Eastern intelligence official told VICE World News.

WASHINGTON/DUBAI, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Whether or not Tehran and Washington accept a European Union "final" offer to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, neither is likely to declare the pact dead because keeping it alive serves both sides' interests, diplomats, analysts and officials said. "We are in no rush," said a senior Iranian official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Therefore, time is not of the essence for Iran," said a second senior Iranian official. read moreDANGLINGThe lack of better policy options for Washington, and Tehran's view that time is on its side, could leave the deal dangling. "It is unclear whether Iranian leaders have decided not to revive the deal or have not made a definitive decision, but either way, continuing this limbo period likely serves their interests," Rome said.

REUTERS/Lisa LeutnerAug 15 (Reuters) - Iran and the United States are struggling to overcome divisions on three major issues in indirect talks on revival of a 2015 nuclear deal while months of negotiations have entered a crucial stage. Grossi said more than 40 IAEA cameras would keep operating as part of the core monitoring in Iran that predates the 2015 deal. But President Joe Biden cannot promise this because the nuclear deal is a non-binding political understanding, not a legally-binding treaty. Many Republican senators detest the nuclear pact and even some Democrats oppose it.

Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida speaks during a memorial service marking the 77th anniversary of Japan's surrender in World War II at the Nippon Budokan hall in Tokyo, Japan August 15, 2022. "In a world where conflicts are still unabated, Japan is a proactive leader in peace," he said. Footage on broadcaster NHK showed the shrine being visited early on Monday by several cabinet ministers, including Economic Security Minister Sanae Takaichi. Earlier the site was visited by Koichi Hagiuda, the head of the LDP's policy research council and a key ally of slain former prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Abe was the last prime minister in recent memory to visit Yasukuni while in office, in 2013 - a visit that outraged both China and South Korea and even drew a rebuke from its close ally the United States.

Indeed, Japan's outlook has been clouded by a resurgence in COVID infections, slowing global growth, supply constraints and rising raw material prices that are boosting households' living costs. But the rise in second quarter consumption was smaller than market forecasts for a 1.3% increase, casting doubt on whether the rebound in household spending will have legs. "Looking ahead, there's downside risks to domestic demand due to a renewed spike in COVID cases. But there is uncertainty on whether companies will hike salaries amid heightening risks of slowing global demand, analysts say.

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."

Reckoning With Memories of Budapest

In the 32 years since then, Hungary has undergone its own dramatic transformation. Once considered the most entrepreneurial and Western-friendly of the former Eastern Bloc nations, it has, of late, become a poster child of nationalism, illiberalism and the erosion of democratic values, offering a political vision that has been emulated in Poland and admired by populist figures in France, Italy and the United States. Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orbán, now the longest serving elected leader in Europe, has steadily consolidated power by rewriting the Constitution, overhauling election laws to favor his Fidesz party, undermining the independence of the courts and bringing most of the country’s media under the control of his political allies. The influence of his autocratic tendencies has also seeped into the country’s civic and cultural life, leading to the expulsion of a liberal university and affecting the leadership and offerings at theaters and museums. I sensed some of the troubling undercurrents within minutes of my arrival, when László, on our drive from the airport, began echoing Kremlin-friendly conspiracies about the war in Ukraine, which have been widely disseminated via the state-owned media and pro-government news outlets.

The son of the man suspected of killing at least two Muslim men in New Mexico in recent months allegedly may also have played a role in the crime, authorities said in court documents filed last week. Authorities are still investigating those cases, and Muhammad Syed has not been charged with the murders. “Defendant’s propensity for dishonesty should undermine the Court’s confidence that he will be forthright with any probation officer tasked with supervising him on any form of pretrial release," the court documents state. Anderson, Syed's attorney, claims he never received the summons or complaint issued to him in this case, according to court documents. His father, Muhammad, was also implicated in troubling domestic violence incidents, including one inside a state office building, court documents show.

MAYVILLE, N.Y. — Salman Rushdie is “on the road to recovery,” his agent confirmed Sunday, two days after the author of “The Satanic Verses” suffered serious injuries in a stabbing at a lecture in upstate New York. Wylie continued to caution that although Rushdie’s “condition is headed in the right direction,” his recovery would be a long process. Rushdie, 75, suffered a damaged liver and severed nerves in an arm and an eye, Wylie had previously said, and was likely to lose the injured eye. Investigators were trying to determine whether the suspect, born nearly a decade after “The Satanic Verses” was published, acted alone. News about the stabbing has led to renewed interest in “The Satanic Verses,” which topped bestseller lists after the fatwa was issued in 1989.
