And as Modi looks to win another five years in power in an ongoing nationwide election, critics fear further erosion of the protections afforded to India’s free press. “I think many times before I write stories,” Kappan told CNN. Since his bail, Kappan has struggled to find a permanent job to provide for his family. Kumar told CNN he resigned because Adani’s proximity to Modi and the BJP would leave him unable to continue asking tough questions of the government. “They gave no reasons nor any justifications for why they denied my permit,” she told CNN from Paris.

The Chinese-founded fast-fashion giant is reported to have turned its attention to the LSE after facing regulatory and political challenges over a potential initial public offering in New York. U.S. lawmakers have raised several concerns about Shein, including over the transparency of its supply chain. The LSE has struggled to court high-growth companies in recent years compared with markets in Asia and the U.S., and has recently lost significant players including travel group TUI and cybersecurity firm Darktrace. However, British computing startup Raspberry Pi last week said it plans to list in London. CNBC has contacted Shein for comment.

American chip giant Intel in December 2021 said it will invest more than $7 billion to build a chip packaging and testing factory in Malaysia, with production expected to begin in 2024. Malaysia holds 13% of the global market for chip packaging, assembly and testing services, said the Malaysian Investment Development Authority in a Feb. 18 report. Exports of semiconductor devices and integrated circuits increased by 0.03% to 387.45 billion Malaysian ringgit ($81.4 billion) in 2023, amid global chip demand weakness. Malaysia Semiconductor Industry Association president Datuk Seri Wong Siew Hai said many Chinese firms diversified some of their production to Malaysia, calling the country China's "plus one." In the same month, the world's largest contract chip maker TSMC opened its first Japan factory as it diversifies away from Taiwan amid U.S.-China tensions.

This is the first time Beijing has edged past Washington since 2020 when the annual survey first posed the question. China's aggressive behavior in the South China Sea is the Philippines' (90.2%) and Vietnam's (72.5%) top concern, the region's two frontline South China Sea claimant states. The Philippines President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. told Bloomberg last month that his government's claims on certain parts of the South China sea should not be viewed as provoking China. Vietnam has also asserted sovereignty over islands in the South China Sea though Beijing has brushed aside those claims. ASEAN should build up its resilience and unity to fend off pressures from the two major powers, the U.S. and China, nearly half of the survey respondents said.

Tribeca has been a shareholder of Glencore for seven years and has been engaging with management for a year. The company has excellent core asset quality in copper, zinc and coal, as well as a world-leading commodity trading business. Notably, Bluebell Capital Partners agitated for a demerger of Glencore's thermal coal business in 2021. However, in 2023, after acquiring a 77% interest in Teck's steelmaking coal business, Glencore stated its intention to demerge its combined coal and carbon steel businesses. The same can be said for the divestment of the trading business.

Gen Z and millennial workers, in particular, are seeing their productivity take a hit partly because of friction with older managers, according to a new report . But the share was higher among younger workers: 37% of Gen Zers and 30% of millennials said they weren’t getting much done. Older workers who had much younger managers didn't report decreased productivity. Varied experiences are one reason it can be good to bring on both younger and older workers, he said. That way of working, plus decades of experience, is why he thinks it’s often wise to rely on older workers.

London CNN —Six people were arrested Sunday over a suspected plot to disrupt the London Stock Exchange (LSE) when the market opened for trade Monday, London’s Metropolitan Police has said. It was alleged that activists from the Palestine Action group intended to target the exchange on Monday morning to cause damage and prevent it from “opening for trading,” according to a statement from the police force. The LSE hasn’t had a physical trading floor since 1986, with all equities trading taking place electronically. Palestine Action is a British-based activist group that aims to disrupt the operations of weapons manufacturers supplying the Israeli government. Having only been provided with the material on Friday afternoon, we had limited time to act.”The London Stock Exchange declined to comment on the matter.

[1/3] A general view shows Marathon Petroleum's refinery, following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, in Anacortes, Washington, U.S., March 9, 2022. Higher carbon taxes - including levies on emissions from the maritime and aviation sectors - should be among options COP28 studies, the panel recommended. Subsidies for fossil fuels totalled $1.3 trillion, and substantially more if counting the societal cost of dealing with emissions and pollution. Co-chair Nicholas Stern, professor at LSE/Grantham Research Institute, said there was a compelling case for energy companies to make voluntary contributions. "I think that moral obligation is something that will be emphasised at COP28, and indeed before and after," he said.

Aira UK“There is no trade-off between (installing a heat pump), saving the planet and at the same time saving the pockets of consumers,” CEO Martin Lewerth told CNN. “If you’re living outside Scandinavia and you want a heat pump, it’s not a hassle-free experience,” Lewerth acknowledged. “There is no scenario in which delay is the cheaper option with climate change,” said Bob Ward, policy and communications director at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the LSE. “If we’d invested more in renewable energy… energy bills wouldn’t have gone up so much, which disproportionately impacted on poor households,” Valero at the LSE told CNN.

Portugal approved in 2021 a set of regulatory policies and legal instruments to combat climate change, but the three environmental groups - Ultimo Recurso, Quercus and Sciaena - say "little progress" has been made to meet goals and deadlines. They also said the government had not fully implemented measures of its national energy and climate plan (PNEC) as well as sector-specific policies for climate mitigation. Every deadline we miss ... increases the likelihood of catastrophic climate events," said Francisca Costa, from Ultimo Recurso, which means "last resort" in Portuguese.

Economic models buckle under strain of climate reality
  + stars: | 2023-11-22 | by ( Mark John | ) www.reuters.com   time to read: +6 min
But detractors say those numbers are the product of economic models that are not fit to capture the full extent of climate damage. A year earlier, the Trump administration cited similar models to justify replacing the Obama-era Clean Power Plan with one allowing higher emissions from coal-burning plants. At issue are the "integrated assessment models" (IAMs) economists use to draw conclusions on anything from output losses to financial risk or the pricing of carbon markets. Line chart with data from Climate Tracker shows varying predictions of global warming damage as percentage of GDP. "Our main message is: 'Economists, speak to climate scientists and come up with results that make sense'," he said.
