Kavak Chief Executive Carlos Garcia poses for a photo at used autos platform Kavak in Mexico City, Mexico, August 25, 2020. Founded nearly five years ago in Mexico, Kavak expanded to Argentina in 2020, before landing in Brazil this year, which it described as its largest market. The company will most likely focus next on expanding to emerging markets beyond Latin America, CEO Garcia told Reuters, noting that announcements could come within six months. Kavak says it now has 5,000 employees across Latin America. Chinese consumer habits closely resemble those in Latin America, Garcia said.

Coffee is largely produced in the Coffee Belt, located between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, where countries such as Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia and Vietnam have provided the best climate for coffee trees, which need constant heat to survive. Armstrong recently joined a group of farmers taking part in the largest-ever coffee growing endeavor in the United States. "It seems more logical to invest in new coffee varieties that could be grown in the same current geographies," he said. Rowland said researchers are planting coffee trees close to citrus, an intercropping technique used in other parts of the world as larger trees help hold winds and provide shade to coffee trees. That, in turn, could help in the selection of optimal coffee varieties for the region in the future.

Solar panels are seen at the Desert Stateline project near Nipton, California, U.S. August 16, 2021. REUTERS/Bridget BennettSept 22 (Reuters) - A U.S. solar industry group warned on Wednesday that tariffs on imported panels from three Asian countries would jeopardize nearly 30% of the solar capacity the nation is expected to install over the next two years. "We cannot emphasize enough how damaging these tariffs would be to our companies and the entire American solar industry," said the letter signed by nearly 200 solar companies. The tariffs would jeopardize 18 gigawatts (GW) of solar projects by 2023, the SEIA said, enough to power about 3.4 million homes. SEIA for years has opposed tariffs on solar imports because those products have fueled the sector's growth.

A staff member stands beside the Taiwanese Central Bank logo in Taipei, Taiwan February 26, 2018. In the second quarter, the economy expanded 7.43% from a year earlier, slowing from 8.92% growth in the first quarter but still better than many of its regional peers. Export-dependent Taiwan also faces uncertainty about the spread of the Delta variant in key markets like China, the United States and Europe. The central bank will give its own revised forecast for economic growth this year on Thursday, having predicted a 5.08% expansion at its last quarterly meeting in June, with exports performing strongly.

CANBERRA, Sept 22 (Reuters) - An Australian-EU trade deal would be mutually beneficial and allow EU members a greater presence in the Indo-Pacific, said Australia's trade minister, as Canberra tries to repair ties with Paris after the scrapping of a $40 billion submarine deal. In solidarity with France, EU lawmakers have publicly questioned whether a trade deal with Australia could be possible. Australia's Minister for Trade Dan Tehan on Wednesday urged the EU to progress ahead with a trade deal. Australia and the EU are set to hold the next round of talks on a trade deal on Oct 12. Morrison is in the United States to attend the quadrilateral security dialogue, made up of India, Japan, the United States and Australia - which convenes later this week.

Migration police detain a person suspected of belonging to an international network for migrant trafficking, in La Cruz, Costa Rica July 30, 2019. The network handled migrants from Asian and African countries and to a lesser extent people from Cuba, Haiti and Venezuela, according to the Costa Rican security ministry. Panamanian authorities carried out 35 raids and 21 arrests, while on Costa Rican soil 15 operations were reported in border municipalities and another 21 people were captured. An investigation that lasted more than a year revealed that the organization charged each migrant $14,000 to $25,000 to take them to the United States, said Costa Rican Security Minister Michael Soto. In Panama, police agents also confiscated three vehicles and a boat used to transport migrants, the Public Ministry said in a statement.

The robot's Tianjin-based maker has received tax breaks and government-guaranteed loans to build products that modernise China's vast factory sector and advance its technological expertise. The share of strategic industries in Tianjin's factory output will also rise to 40%, Yin said, from 26.1% last year. Additionally, the trade war with the United States and Washington's tech curbs exposed China's lack of high-tech know-how, hardening Beijing's resolve to speed up innovation.

Delta variant clouds developing Asia's growth outlook - ADB
  + stars: | 2021-09-22 | by ( ) www.reuters.com   time to read: +3 min
Growth in developing Asia, which groups 46 countries in the Asia-Pacific, is projected to reach 7.1% this year, the ADB said in an update to its Asia Development Outlook report, down from its 7.2% forecast in July and 7.3% in April. While seeing a slight downgrade, this year's growth estimate is a turnaround from the region's 0.1% contraction last year. For 2022, the ADB kept its 5.4% growth forecast for developing Asia. "Developing Asia remains vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic, as new variants spark outbreaks, leading to renewed restrictions on mobility in some economies," ADB Acting Chief Economist Joseph Zveglich said in a statement. The ADB also maintained its growth outlook for India at 10.0% this year and 7.5% next year.

However, these ambitions could be hit as a natural gas shortage on the continent drives prices higher. The front-month gas price at the Dutch TTF hub, a European benchmark, has risen more than 250% since the start of the year. Spain is not the only country to cap energy price increases, with France and Greece making similar moves. There is a wider problem, however: Some European leaders and lawmakers have blamed the EU for the energy price increases. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, for instance, said earlier this month that "Polish power prices are tied to the EU's climate policies," according to Politico.

The Genomic Map of Poland's concerns stem from questions over how Polish genomic data may be used that relate to national security, said Marek Figlerowicz, a Professor at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry at the Polish Academy of Sciences who steers the project. As the technology to sequence genetic data has advanced and become cheaper, Figlerowicz said, the mapping project plans to bring the remaining sequencing in-house. The project wants to ensure Poland has genomic "independence" so it can ensure data security. The European Union, which provided about 65% of the total funding for the Genomic Map, did not respond to a request for comment. BGI uses the pregnant women's genetic data for research into the traits of populations.

“I just cry all the time because of my situation,” she said. On Thursday, Idaho state officials expanded “crisis standards of care” across the state, a standard that had been limited to the northern part of the state earlier in the month. With precious few available intensive-care beds, Idaho hospitals had largely stopped providing hernia surgeries or hip replacements before the new order. Now they are postponing cancer and heart surgeries, too, said Brian Whitlock, the chief executive of the Idaho Hospital Association. In Alaska, the state’s largest hospital, Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, has also begun rationing care as patients wait for hours to get to the emergency room and doctors scramble to find beds.

WASHINGTON — Haitians deported from the U.S. on Tuesday assaulted the pilots on board one of the flights when it arrived in Port-au-Prince and injured three U.S. immigration officers, according to a source familiar with internal reports of the incident. Unrest broke out shortly after a flight carrying single adult men arrived and released the men to Haitian authorities on the airport tarmac. Then, according to the source, several of the men stormed another recently arrived flight carrying families. Three ICE officers were also attacked on that airplane, each suffering non-life-threatening injuries, the source said. As of Tuesday, just over 1,000 of the Haitian migrants had been deported to Haiti, according to two sources familiar with the operations.

From 2001 through April, about 66,000 Afghan military and police members were killed in Afghanistan, alongside 2,448 U.S. service members. The abrupt U.S. exit from Afghanistan likely forced the Afghan military to fight under unfamiliar conditions, ultimately leading to collapse — and the humanitarian catastrophe we are now witnessing. Our military allies in both countries simply do not know how to fight effectively on more conventional battlefields without U.S. support. If we are willing to maintain huge troop numbers to support our allies in Europe and East Asia, then why not even a small footprint in the Middle East?

Some House Democrats objected to a provision in a stopgap spending bill to provide the additional funding so Israel can replenish its “Iron Dome” missile-defense system. The U.S. company Raytheon produces many Iron Dome components. That could set the stage for another dispute over military aid for Israel. The United States has already provided more than $1.6 billion for Israel to develop and build the Iron Dome system, according to a U.S. Congressional Research Service report last year. Israel said most of the 4,350 rockets fired from Gaza during the conflict were blown out of the sky by Iron Dome interceptors.

"We will continue to make the case that it should be" raised, Psaki told reporters on board Air Force One. "It is not a partisan issue to want to protect the full faith and credit of the United States, and... we will continue to press for bipartisan support for moving forward." Republicans have refused to vote to increase the debt limit, citing Democrats' spending plans on infrastructure and social programs.
