UN chief strongly condemns 'hateful' anti-Islam film
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon strongly condemned a controversial film deemed offensive to Islam that has sparked anti-American protests across the Middle East, saying the "hateful" film appears to be a deliberate attempt to cause bloodshed.

Ban also stressed that there is no justification for the attacks and killings that are being perpetrated across Libya, Egypt, Yemen and other parts of the Middle East in the name of protests over the film made by an Israeli-American. The UN Secretary-General "condemns the hateful film that appears to have been deliberately designed to sow bigotry and bloodshed," a statement issued by Ban's spokesperson. "Nothing justifies such killings and attacks," it said. The statement issued on Thursday said Ban is "deeply disturbed" by the violence in Libya and across the Middle East and calls for calm and restraint at this time of rising tensions. He stre…
Govt allows 51 pc FDI in multi-brand retail
The Cabinet on Friday decided to operationalise 51 percent FDI in multi-brand retail but left it to the state governments to allow setting up of such stores.

It has also tweaked the sourcing norms for FDI exceeding 50 percent in single brand retail, requiring foreign firms, which want a relaxation of the 30 percent procurement norms, to set up manufacturing facilities in the country.
After considering various aspects and discussions with various stakeholders and states, it has been decided to go ahead with the decision to allow 51 percent FDI in multi-brand retail, Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma told reporters after the Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi on Friday.
"The response has been a mixed one but the UPA had tried to evolve a consensus," he said.
The cabinet had in November last year approved 51 percent FDI in multi-brand retail but had to put it on hold due to opposition from polit…
CCEA approves disinvestment in 4 PSUs, to raise Rs 15,000 cr
The government on Friday approved sale of its minority stakes in four public sector firms -- Hindustan Copper, Oil India, MMTC and Nalco-- to raise up to Rs 15,000 crore.
The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) has, however, not taken any decision on disinvestment of Neyveli Lignite, that was also on the agenda.
The government has approved the proposal to sell 10 percent stake in Oil India Ltd and another 9.59 percent disinvestment in Hindustan Copper Ltd, sources said.
Further, the CCEA also cleared the proposal of 12.15 percent stake sale of Nalco and 9.33 percent in MMTC through Offer for Sale (OFS) route.
However, the 5 percent stake sale of Neyveli Lignite was not taken up by the CCEA, sources added.
Finance Minister P Chidambaram had last month asked officials to expedite the process of disinvestment so that state-owned companies could hit stock markets in time and help the government achieve the target of Rs 30,000…

Obama expands lead, Romney still in striking distanceby sagarmedia
President Barack Obama has a growing lead in polls and an easier path to the White House than challenger Mitt Romney, but the Republican is still within striking distance with eight weeks to go before the election.
Obama expanded his edge over Romney after their back-to-back nominating conventions and has leads in eight of the top nine battleground states, giving him an advantage but not a lock on the race.
While bumps in the polls after a convention often do not last, Romney is running out of chances to recast the race and win over a small group of undecided voters. Three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate in October are the last major campaign events before the November 6 election.
“Clearly, heading into the final 60 days of the campaign the president has opened up an edge, and that includes in the swing states, too,” pollster Peter Brown of Quinnipiac University said. “But Romney just needs to mo…
