In the first address to the World Economic Forum by a Chinese president, Mr Xi gave a staunch defence of globalisation and attacked protectionism.
“Pursuing protectionism is just like locking oneself in a dark room. While wind and rain may be kept outside, so are light and air. No-one will emerge as a winner in a trade war,” he told the audience.
The pound climbed against the dollar and was set for its biggest advance since the global crisis as May laid out her plans in a speech to diplomats in London that was broadcast live in European countries including Germany.
“I can confirm today that the government will put the final deal that’s agreed between the U.K. and the EU to a vote in both Houses of Parliament before it comes into force,” she said on Tuesday.
On Monday, CNN weighed in with a story that revealed that Mr. Price had purchased shares in a medical device company just a week before introducing legislation to delay regulations that could significantly harm the firm.
In the weeks since the election, organizations that recruit and train women to run for office have reported unprecedented interest in their programs, mainly from women disturbed by the strident misogyny of this election cycle or troubled by the threats Trump and his appointees pose to their rights. The upwelling recalls the Year of the Woman, 1992, when four new women were elected to the U.S. Senate, tripling the meager female population of the chamber.

This causes the kind of pathological changes that we associate with heart disease risk.”
U.S. oil output is already rising, and it has been for much of the second half of 2016, reaching 8.95 million barrels per day in the week to January 6, 2017. The active rig count across the country stood at 659 as of January 13, of which 522 were oil rigs. Although the total number marked a weekly decline, the short-term trend is upward, according to analysts, as shale producers take advantage of the higher oil prices.
It turns out that staying below a 2°C warming means we think we have a reasonable chance of avoiding some of the worst climate impacts and some of the potentially disastrous tipping points.
