BEIJING — Tesla's sales in China are now nearly half what the automaker sells in the U.S.China's share of Tesla's overall sales rose to 22.6% in the third quarter, up from just under 20% a year ago. Tesla has opened a gigafactory in Shanghai and delivered its first China-made cars to local customers just before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in January 2020. Both the Model 3 and Y rank among the top three sold in China's new energy vehicle passenger car market, according to the China Passenger Car Association. German auto giant Volkswagen generates about 41% of its sales volumes in China, according to Goldman Sachs.

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.

Cuba's home-grown vaccines are currently under review by the World Health Organization and most trial data has yet to be peer reviewed. But among countries with more than 1 million people, Cuba is vaccinating faster than any other, according to a Reuters tally of official data. At least 90% of the population has received at least one dose of one of the country's three-dose homegrown vaccines. Cuba received more than four million tourists in 2019, contributing 10.6 percent to gross domestic product (GDP), and much more through supply chains and informal economic activity. And life is slowly returning to the colonial district of Havana as it prepares to once more welcome visitors after a 19-month hiatus.

Paid leave is part of the Democrats’ giant budget proposal, which includes other family policies like child and elder care. For paid leave, decreasing the number of weeks is a simple way to lower the price. Some leave is better than none, researchers said, but evidence from around the world suggests that four weeks is too little to reap the full benefits. The rest of the world, including low-income countries, have found a way to do this.”Globally, the average paid maternity leave is 29 weeks, and the average paid paternity leave is 16 weeks, the center’s data shows. There is one element of the paid leave proposal, however, that would put the United States at the forefront internationally: its very broad definition of family and caregiving.

National flags of Russia and the U.S. fly at Vnukovo International Airport in Moscow, Russia April 11, 2017. REUTERS/Maxim ShemetovMOSCOW, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Russia on Sunday condemned a decision by the United States to add Russians seeking U.S. visas to a list of "homeless nationals" who can apply for visas in third countries. The U.S. State Department lists as "homeless" applicants from countries in which the United States has no consular representation, or where consular staff cannot issue visas due to the political or security situation. Russia became the 10th nation on the list, after Cuba, Eritrea, Iran, Libya, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen. At the talks, Moscow said it was willing to lift all the restrictions imposed in recent years, and Washington said it wanted parity on diplomatic staff numbers and visa reciprocity.

The American bumblebee was once the most commonly observed bumblebee in the U.S. Like 11 other bumblebee species, its population has plummeted. Nationally, it has declined about 89% in the past 20 years, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The species has vanished from at least eight states, mostly in the Northeast, according to the Center for Biological Diversity, a nonprofit environmental organization.

They were summoned by the foreign ministry, which called the statement irresponsible. The Norwegian Foreign Ministry said its embassy in Ankara had not received information from Turkish authorities regarding the matter at this time. Erdogan was cited on Thursday as saying the ambassadors in question would not release "bandits, murderers and terrorists" in their own countries. The Council of Europe, which oversees the implementation of ECHR decisions, has said it will begin infringement proceedings against Turkey if Kavala is not released. The next hearing in the case against Kavala and others is due on Nov. 26.

Ferrari's Carlos Sainz was second on the timesheets, in 1:34.805, followed by Red Bull's championship leader Verstappen and McLaren's Lando Norris. Seven times world champion Hamilton was sixth for Mercedes, with team mate Valtteri Bottas fifth, and 0.518 slower than Perez. Hamilton and Verstappen went top in quick succession on the soft tyres but had the laps deleted for exceeding track limits. The test in a car owned by team boss Zak Brown was a reward for their one-two victory at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza in September, McLaren's first win since 2012.

The Senate filibuster first captured the American imagination in Frank Capra’s 1939 movie “Mr. A filibuster can only be stopped if a supermajority of 60 senators votes to end debate in a process called cloture. With just 50 senators in their caucus, Democrats currently can’t overcome filibusters unless at least 10 Republicans vote with them. A prior roadblock on that measure prompted Biden earlier this month to say he was open to changing the filibuster. In 1975, the Senate reduced the requirement for limiting debate to three-fifths of the Senate - currently 60 senators.

Mr. Biden’s wording was a reminder of what a minefield Taiwan remains for the United States, 42 years after the passage of the Taiwan Relations Act and amid a major buildup of Chinese military forces in the region. And once a strategy of ambiguity is described in less-than-ambiguous terms, as he seemed to do on Thursday, it is hard to walk it back. Mr. Biden is hardly new to the issue: He is one of the very few political figures who have been around Washington so long that he voted for the act, in 1979, as a young senator from Delaware. As chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he traveled to Taiwan and understood the nuances of the wording. He understood it so well, in fact, that 20 years ago Mr. Biden warned President George W. Bush that “words matter” after Mr. Bush said he would do “whatever it took” to defend Taiwan.

In addition to the talking heads, “American Veteran” features plenty of archival footage of life in the field and back home. “It took time to convince them that we were going to be good stewards of their story,” Vecchione said. One prominent theme in the series speaks to the internal tensions of the veteran experience. The daughter of Indian immigrants, she became a company commander in 2002 and trained enlisted Marines in combat skills. She was part of an initial wave of female leaders who integrated the School of Infantry, which trains enlisted Marines in basic infantry and combat skills after they complete boot camp.

Social media users are sharing a quote wrongly attributed to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange saying that the U.S. fears Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi because they know that he is incorruptible. The text in the posts reads: “America fears Modi because they know that he is INCORRUPTIBLE – Julian Assange Wikileaks Founder.”There is no evidence that Assange ever said this. The quote they link to is similar to the one circulating now on social media, but in Hindi. In a tweeted reply, Wikileaks said: “#Assange has never spoken about #Modi in any manner whatsoever. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange did not say that the U.S. fears Mondi because they know that he is incorruptible.

The CEO of American appliance maker Whirlpool told CNBC's Jim Cramer on Thursday he's "starting to get worried" the U.S. labor market could face structural challenges in the years ahead, even after various pandemic-related hurdles have been cleared. "I'm starting to get worried that the labor shortage start becoming structural, so yes, demographics are a little bit of a worry down the road." Last week on "Mad Money," Domino's Pizza CEO Ritch Allison raised concerns about "minimal population growth organically" in the U.S. combined with a slowdown in immigration. Cramer made a similar point Thursday when speaking with Whirlpool's Bitzer, who appeared on "Mad Money" after the Michigan-based company reported mixed third-quarter results. Shares of Whirlpool fell more than 2% in after-hours trading, as investors reacted to the quarterly numbers.
