Sounds detected by probes deep in the South Atlantic on Monday did not come from an Argentine submarine that has been lost for five days, the country's navy said Monday, dashing newfound hope among relatives of the 44 sailors aboard.
"We can make up a thousand movies with happy and sad endings, but the reality is that the days pass by and not knowing anything kills you," Carlos Mendoza, the brother of submarine officer Fernando Ariel Mendoza, told the AP.
Otherwise, the mild selloff in recent days could be a prelude to a more substantial correction in the months ahead—and investors might start to look askance at all those richly valued growth stocks too.
In particular, investors are focused on two positive developments: forced factory closures in China, which are driving metal prices higher, and better growth in the U.S. Two big questions, meanwhile, have received far less attention.
Chile, so used to geological upheavals, faces a vastly changed political landscape after a progressive alliance surged ahead in Sunday’s general election, and left conservative presidential frontrunner Sebastián Piñera facing a tough fight in December’s run-off.
Piñera, a billionaire and former president, had been widely expected to cruise to victory – and possibly even win outright in the first round.
England have named an unchanged team for Saturday's World Cup semi-final against Tonga but stand-off Kevin Brown will have to pass a series of tests before he can play.
England are hoping to reach their first World Cup final since 1995 and the absence of Brown would be a blow to a side that has looked more solid and organised since he was brought in against France at the end of the group stage. Brown was knocked out after colliding with an opponent 25 minutes into the quarter-final win in Melbourne but replays were not working in the stadium and the England team were unaware of the fact that he had been momentarily knocked unconscious.
While the Detroit area is studded with empty lots that once had factories, the Mahindra plant is a promising sign of blue-collar jobs on the horizon.
One of the largest auto suppliers in Detroit is the Indian firm Sakthi Automotive, which is expanding its operations into a long-shuttered high school on the city’s hardscrabble southwest side. Detroit’s mayor, Mike Duggan, has made rebuilding the city’s depressed industrial base a priority, and last year lured the auto-parts supplier Flex-N-Gate — owned by a Pakistani native, Shahid Khan — to construct a $95 million factory near downtown.
If your holiday festivities result in all new stains, spills and messes you’d rather not bring into 2018, here’s how to clean them all up.
Enzymatic stain removers like Zout can be used to effectively treat blood stains on launderable items, while unseasoned meat tenderizer, which contains enzymes that break down blood, can be mixed with water to form a paste that’s especially good at treating older, more set-in blood stains.
At the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development Rio +20 in 2012 - 20 years after the first World Oceans Day - giant fish made from plastic bottles were exhibited along the waterfront in Rio de Janeiro.
"Cleaning up beaches from plastic litter certainly is first a way to make the beaches more attractive again for recreation, but more importantly it generates awareness to not discard plastics in the environment and to not litter," says Herndl.
The key to a successful gratin (also known as scalloped potatoes) is getting the proportions right, so that the potatoes cook through and the liquid is absorbed or evaporated at the same time.
Tiny new potatoes can be roasted whole and raw, but mature, starchy potatoes need a quick precook in boiling water or the microwave. After that, the sky’s the limit, in terms of cooking fat (butter, oil, chicken fat, lard), seasonings (warm spices, chile powders, dry herbs, spice pastes), and garnishes (herb leaves, grated cheese, yogurt or crème fraîche, olives, citrus zests).
Liam Rogerson is 28 years old and has just arrived in Kent from his home in Sunderland to spend the festive season with his younger brother and sister.
As the family tours the castle, they're remembering Liam, his love of all things medieval, how he said he wanted to buy a suit of armour for his house.
Millennials, take note: If you’re looking to build up your nest egg, home ownership isn’t really all it’s cracked up to be.
“When considering buying and building wealth through equity appreciation versus renting and reinvesting in a portfolio of stocks and bonds, property appreciation does not change the results,” he said. “On average, renting and reinvesting wins in terms of wealth creation regardless of property appreciation, because property appreciation is highly correlated with gains in the traditional financial asset classes of stocks and bonds.”
A federal judge in California on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to withhold federal funding from sanctuary cities that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration authorities.
The judge disagreed, saying the order was written vaguely and could “reach all federal grants” – potentially leading to cutbacks of millions of dollars to Santa Clara and San Francisco.
Vladimir Putin has hosted Bashar al-Assad for talks during which the two presidents agreed the focus in the Syrian conflict is switching from military operations to the search for a political solution.
Putin and Assad last met on 20 October 2015 in Moscow, a few weeks after Russia launched a military operation in Syria that turned the tide of the conflict in Assad’s favour. This week’s meetings in Russia are likely to ben seen as an attempt to marginalise the UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva, and entrench Assad’s position in power.
Anaheim Police officers use excessive force at a rate that far outpaces law enforcement agencies in most similar-sized or larger cities, according to a report released Monday by the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California.
In 2015, Anaheim ranked ninth among the 60 largest U.S. cities in the rate of officer-involved deaths during arrests, based on FBI data. Last year, Anaheim’s rate of police-involved deaths per million residents outpaced those of Los Angeles, Atlanta, Boston, New York and San Francisco.
The governing bodies of golf are exploring a change that could have a dramatic effect on the future of the sport: different balls for different levels of the game.
Until someone requires golfers to use something other than the best-performing balls they can find, manufacturers will have little reason to bring reduced-distance balls to market.
A woman says Al Franken pulled her in tightly and put his hand on her buttocks in 2010 while posing for a picture at the Minnesota State Fair, the second allegation of improper conduct against the Democrat and first involving his time as a senator.
Franken already faced a Senate ethics investigation over Tweeden's allegation, but the Menz allegation is potentially more damaging for Franken because it would be behavior that occurred while he was in office.
