    TOKYO – Wall Street suits, run for the hills. So far this year, the surging dollar has left a trail of carnage across Asian and European economies, currencies and bourses. Now, it is likely headed for home territory. Count Michael Wilson, Morgan Stanley’s chief US equity strategist, as among those fearing the dollar’s rally is creating an “untenable situation” for US stocks and other assets, pointing to similar periods of exchange-rate excess in the past. “While hard to predict such events, the conditions are in place,” Wilson notes, referring to sovereign debt issues in 2012, the Lehman Brothers crisis of...

    Even though the hurricane is centered on Florida, there’s one phone call the American president refuses to make. Hurricane Ian is shaping up to be a big deal. It’s currently a Category 3 hurricane (sustained winds maxing out at 125 MPH and lots of moisture), growing stronger by the minute. It’s expected to land in Florida late Wednesday or early Thursday as a Category 2 or 3 storm. The possibility of severe damage to life and property is currently very high. At times like this, state governors matter because they’re responsible for mobilizing emergency services to protect their state. When...

    Russia is to open an army enlisting centre on the border with Georgia, where massive queues have formed as Russian men try to flee the country to avoid being sent to fight in Ukraine. Officers at the Verkhniy Lars crossing will be tasked with serving summons to "citizens of the mobilisation age", the authorities say. Recent satellite images have shown queues going for miles from Russia. All those crossing into Georgia look exhausted, a BBC correspondent says. They are hungry and sleep deprived - but relieved to have reached safety, Rayhan Demytrie says. People have been coming in groups of...

    An old Soviet self-propelled howitzer called Gvozdika or "Carnation" is rolled out in an open field and put into position. Its barrel tilts up. "Fire!" comes the command. The gunners hastily move away after the last shot, acting quickly. Although the advancement of Ukrainian forces in the south is very slow, their artillery units remain busy. (snip) The self-styled referendum is bringing a new threat to the local population - mobilisation. Many men could be drafted to fight for the Russian army. Russian soldiers are already going house to house in some villages and writing down the names of male...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Monday said he hadn’t yet decided whether he will make another bid for the White House. “That’s a big — you know, I haven’t made that decision,” Sanders said on “CBS Mornings.” Sanders, an Independent who caucuses with Senate Democrats, mounted his first presidential campaign as a Democrat in the 2016 general election, ultimately losing the party’s nomination to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He ran again in the 2020 election cycle but suspended his campaign before the primaries concluded, ceding the Democrats’ nomination to now-President Biden.

    WASHINGTON, Feb 7 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday warned that if Russia invades Ukraine, there would be no Nord Stream 2, but did not specify how he would go about ensuring the controversial pipeline would not be used. Speaking at a joint news conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Biden said, "If Russia invades... again, then there will be longer Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it." When asked how he would do that, he responded, "I promise you we will be able to do it." Europe's most divisive energy project, Nord Stream 2...

    This night image of the Korean Peninsula shows that North Korea is almost completely dark compared to neighboring South Korea and China. PHOTOGRAPH BY EARTH SCIENCE & REMOTE SENSING UNITY, NASA JOHNSON SPACE CENTER North Korea's isolation is visible in new satellite photos that show the energy-bankrupt country at night. Since the mid-1990s, when fuel stopped flowing from the defunct Soviet Union to North Korea, the famously hermetic country has descended into darkness. Newly released photos taken from the International Space Station last month reveal just how energy bankrupt North Korea has become. The photos, and a time-lapse video of...

    former CIA officer said Vladimir Putin had been backed into a corner over his war in Ukraine. Robert Baer told CNN the Russian leader was unlikely to deescalate, given all his setbacks. Baer also said the chances that Putin might turn to tactical nuclear weapons were increasing. As military setbacks in Ukraine force Russian President Vladimir Putin into a corner, one former CIA officer argues that the chances he might turn to nuclear weapons are increasing. "I think the chances of his de-escalating are close to zero," Robert Baer, a former CIA case officer, told CNN on Tuesday, adding that...

    Hassan Sidky el Dajani, a prominent Palestine Arab leader, publishes an open letter to the High Commissioner in the Arab organ, “Al Hayat”, declaring that it is not unusual for Arab female children in Palestine of ten years of age and under to be “hired out” for as many as 25 years at the rate of a pound a year. The Fellah sometimes has to sell his sons as slaves at the cheapest price in order to use the money to keep body and soul together, and to keep his wife alive, el Dajani writes.

    Mayor Adams acknowledged Tuesday that his administration’s controversial migrant tent camp in the Bronx may violate local right-to-shelter rules that have tripped him up several times this summer as the city struggles to accommodate waves of Latin American asylum seekers. The decadesold right-to-shelter law requires the city to provide a bed to anyone who needs one, and also stipulates certain benchmark amenities, such as a set amount of space between beds and access to lockers, laundry and mail services. Amid an enormous influx of migrants in recent months, Adams has repeatedly said his administration must “reassess” the law, though he...

    German citizens are suing their government over its failure to bring down air pollution levels to limits recommended by the world’s leading scientists. The seven claimants, supported by environmental organizations ClientEarth and Deutsche Umwelthilfe [German Environment Help], last week launched the case in the Federal Administrative Court — Germany’s highest court. They argue German law breaches their fundamental rights, since it allows air pollution levels to be four to five times higher than those the World Health Organization (WHO) deems acceptable. “Air pollution may not often be named the official cause of death, but it claims lives — and causes...
