REUTERS/Kim Kyung-HoonTOKYO, Oct 26 (Reuters) - Japan's Nidec Corp (6594.T) increased its full-year earnings outlook by 6% on Tuesday, as the precision electric motor maker benefited from increased demand from home appliance makers, auto companies and others. The company expects a full-year operating profit of 190 billion yen ($1.6 billion) compared with an earlier forecast of 180 billion yen. That is lower than an average 192.2 billion yen prediction based on estimates from 20 analysts, according to Refinitiv data. The company's second-quarter operating profit rose 10% to 45.6 billion yen from a year earlier, worse than analysts' average estimate of 46.8 billion. Those production delays resulted in a 2.5 billion yen loss in the business segment for the second quarter, the company said.

REUTERS/Eloy AlonsoEDP Renovaveis (EDPR), 75% owned by EDP, Portugal’s biggest utility, is in late-stage talks to buy the stake held in Sunseap by Thai energy firm Banpu PCL, Singapore state investor Temasek Holdings, a Temasek-backed fund and others, the sources said. EDPR’s move to snap up the Singapore-based solar energy group reflects the world’s fourth largest renewable energy producer’s ambition to accelerate its growth in Asia. The potential EDPR deal would make it the biggest in Southeast Asia’s renewables sector for five years, according to data from Refinitiv. Banpu holds a nearly 49% stake in Sunseap through a subsidiary, which it has built up since its initial investment in the group in 2017. Decade-old Sunseap is now a regional solar energy system developer, owner and operator, with more than 2,000 megawatt-peak of solar energy projects contracted across Asia.

REUTERS/Willy KurniawanBANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Oct 26 (Reuters) - A summit of Southeast Asian leaders got underway on Tuesday without a Myanmar representative, after its junta leader was excluded for failure to follow a regional peace deal and the ruling military refused to send junior representation. Neither Brunei, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) chair, nor the bloc's secretary-general made a mention of the no-show in opening remarks at the virtual meeting. Brunei had said the bloc would invite a non-political representative from Myanmar, but there was no confirmation of this by the opening of the summit. In deciding to sideline the Myanmar junta boss, ASEAN cited his failure to make steps to end hostilities, initiate dialogue, allow humanitarian support and grant a special envoy full access in the country.

China strengthens land border protection with new law

REUTERS/Thomas PeterBEIJING, Oct 24 (Reuters) - China passed a law on Saturday to strengthen border protection amid a protracted standoff with India, worries about spillover effects from Taliban-controlled Afghanistan and the spread of COVID-19 from Southeast Asia. The Land Borders Law will not necessarily change how border security is handled when the measure takes effect on Jan. 1, but it reflects China's growing confidence in its capability to manage its frontiers. The country will "take effective measures to resolutely protect territorial sovereignty and land border security", the law says. Chinese military and military police - the People's Liberation Army and the People's Armed Police Force - are responsible for guarding the border against any "invasion, encroachment, infiltration, provocation". The law stipulates that China can close its border if a war or other armed conflict nearby threatens border security.

WASHINGTON — A memorial service for Colin L. Powell, the retired Army general and former secretary of state who died on Monday, will be held Nov. 5 at Washington National Cathedral, a spokeswoman said Thursday. “There will be very limited seating and it will be by invitation only,” Peggy Cifrino said in an emailed statement. Such weapons never materialized, and though the Iraqi leader was removed, the war devolved into years of military and humanitarian losses. A series of promotions led to the Pentagon and assignment as a military assistant to Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger. He later became commander of the Army’s 5th Corps in Germany and was national security assistant to President Ronald Reagan.

(Adds details on results, background, share price)Oct 22 (Reuters) - VF Corp reported quarterly revenue on Friday that missed analysts’ estimates as the Vans owner grappled with global supply chain disruptions and factory shutdowns in Vietnam. Months-long factory closures in Vietnam and a strained supply chain threaten to hit apparel makers as they are at risk of facing product shortages over the busy shopping period during the holiday season. VF sources around 25% of its products from Vietnam, with the exposure likely higher for its largest brand Vans, Cowen analysts said earlier this month. The company’s total revenue rose 23% to $3.20 billion in the second quarter, compared with estimates of $3.50 billion, according to Refinitiv IBES. VF’s net income rose to $464.1 million, or $1.18 per share, in the quarter, from $256.7 million, or 66 cents per share a year earlier.

The Stockholm-based company received correspondence from the U.S. Justice Department stating that the company had breached the agreement by failing to provide certain documents and information related to the settlement. Ericsson said it would continue to cooperate with the Justice Department and would have the opportunity to respond to the department’s letter. The company in 2019 entered into a deal with the Justice Department to resolve allegations of bribery that stretched between 2000 and 2016 that the agency said occurred in Djibouti, China, Vietnam, Kuwait and Indonesia. The Justice Department has occasionally issued public warnings about the consequences of violating the terms of a deferred prosecution agreement, but such breaches are rare. The letter to Ericsson comes after a senior Justice Department official earlier in October said that breaching such agreements could lead to punishment more severe than was originally agreed to.

Anti-vaxxers falsely claimed Colin Powell's death is proof that the COVID vaccines don't work. When former Secretary of State Colin Powell died this week of coronavirus-related complications, anti-vaccine activists took to social media and right-wing TV to falsely declare the 84-year-old's death is proof that the COVID vaccines are essentially pointless. Older people are particularly at risk of serious illness or death from COVID, but Powell wasn't just at risk because he was an octogenarian. And as long as substantial pockets of the population continue to refuse the vaccine, COVID will continue to spread and the virus will have greater opportunities to evolve more transmissible or vaccine-resistant variants. The people casting doubt on the vaccine's effectiveness because an old veteran suffering from cancer died of COVID complications are contributing to vaccine resistance.

The small SOG recon teams had to survive on their wits against a devastatingly superior enemy force. One of SOG's primary mission sets was to gather intelligence about North Vietnamese troop numbers and movements. If they could only find groups of North Vietnamese troops, the SOG recon team would kill everyone but the man targeted for capture. On one mission, a SOG recon team captured a North Vietnamese prisoner and flew back to their forward operating base. While en route, SOG commandos inspected their prisoner more closely, only to find that it was a woman.
