Netanyahu avoids Israeli snap polls for now
News ImageA key Israeli minister said Monday he will not quit Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government for now despite sharp disagreements, handing the premier a victory and potentially ending a crisis that has threatened to provoke snap elections. The announcement by Education Minister Naftali Bennett was a dramatic climbdown from his Jewish Home party's earlier threat to leave the coalition if he was not named defence minister. Netanyahu has refused to give the high-profile post to Bennett, one of his main political rivals, despite the coalition crisis threatening to topple his government following a controversial Gaza ceasefire.

Protest greets Apple's Champs Elysees launch
News ImageThe launch of an Apple store on the Champs Elysees in Paris was greeted Sunday by a protest against the US multinational's controversial fiscal practices. The group had staged a sit-in at Apple's flagship Paris store in December 2017, and in February a French court declined to approve a ban on such actions following a request by the US computer giant. "We have come to celebrate in our own way the inauguration of Apple's Champs Elysees store, to remind people that Apple is one of the biggest tax evaders in the world," Attac spokeswoman Aurelie Trouve told AFP at the protest, which featured a brass band.

Residents told AFP by telephone on Sunday that relative calm had held in Hodeida city since pro-government forces -- backed by a Saudi-led military coalition -- announced a pause in their offensive last week amid international calls for a ceasefire and UN-led peace efforts.

Rohingya refugees say they would 'rather die' than be sent back to Burma, as repatriation plans are 'stalled until 2019'
News ImageRohingya refugees in Bangladesh said on Sunday that they would rather die than go back to Burma under current conditions, as it was revealed plans to repatriate them have been stalled until next year. We will not return without being given our rights as citizens, said Mohamad Saddiq Hossain, a local community leader in Kutupalong extension camp, we would rather die here than be taken back there. Mr Hossains feelings were shared by many of the camp's Rohingya residents, who have spent the past week fearing they could be forced back to the country that more than 720,000 were forced to flee in 2017 after a sweeping army crackdown in Rakhine state. Last Tuesday Bangladesh's government was due to send the first batch of 2,200 refugees back to Burma from the south of Bangladesh, but the process was stalled amid protests. Many of those on the list approved by the Burma government fled from their shelters and hid in other camps or in the forest. None of them agreed to return if their demands for justice, citizenship and the ability to go back to their original villages and lands were not met. Abul Kalam, Bangladesh's refugee relief and repatriation commissioner, told Reuters on Sunday that "a new course of action" needed to be adopted on repatriation that took into account refugees' demands. Hundreds of Rohingya refugees shout slogans as they protest against their repatriation at the Unchiprang camp Credit: MOHAMMAD PONIR HOSSAIN/REUTERS "I don't think anyone's agreeing to go back without these," he said. Rahin Ullah, a Rohingya refugee believed to be about 50 years old (he is unsure of his exact age) who fled Myanmar last August for the third time, said he wanted to go home but would not do so until there was an end to discrimination against his people. "We are here just to save our lives for the sake of our children, he said. [Burma] is my homeland, my father was born there, my grandfather was born there and, as far as I know, his father before him. Highlighting the still volatile conditions in Burma, four Rohingya were shot in a raid by immigration authorities on an internal displacement camp outside the city of Sittwee on Sunday. The 20 police officers who entered the camp were looking for men accused of people smuggling after a boat was stopped off the coast on Saturday with 106 Rohingya on board, believed to be on their way to Malaysia. With Bangladesh set to go to the polls on Dec. 30, any decision either to repatriate people, or relocate refugees from the crowded camps to Bangladesh's Bhasan Char island will not proceed until 2019, Mr Kalam said. Bangladesh has vowed not to force anyone to return. But the Rohingyas presence has become particularly contentious ahead of the elections. Many Bangladeshis feel their small, overpopulated country should not be bearing the burden of an extra million people in one of its poorest regions. Rohingya like Mr Hossain have little choice. Here in Bangladesh we have nothing, he says, but it is better than returning.

When Xi Jinping visits the Philippines this week, Duterte will need the Chinese president to put his money where his mouth is and help Duterte justify his geopolitical concessions to a historic rival, according to Richard Heydarian, a Manila-based defense and security analyst. "Otherwise, we can definitely conclude that there's really nothing much in the rhetoric and the Philippines has been taken for a ride," Heydarian said.

Police called as Asia-Pacific summit tensions boil over in US-China trade spat
News ImageLeaders of Asia-Pacific nations failed to agree a joint communique after a summit for the first time on Sunday after police had to be called when trade tensions between the US and China boiled over in Papua New Guinea. Insiders said the sticking point was US demands to include reference to reforming the World Trade Organisation and unfair trade practices - which Beijing took as an unsubtledig. When Chinese diplomats turned up unannounced to persuade Papua New Guineas foreign minister to back their wording, things turned ugly. Rimbink Pato refused to meet them. Police were posted outside the ministers office after they tried to barge in, one source privy to summit negotiations told the AFP news agency, requesting anonymity. Instead of a leaders declaration backed by the 21 members of the the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec), Peter O'Neill, prime minister of Papua New Guinea, said he would issue a chairmans statement. It marks the first time in Apecs 29-year history that its members have not been able to agree. Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (R) and the US Vice President Mike Pence arrive for a "family photo" Credit: Saeed Khan/AFP You know the two big giants in the room, Mr ONeill said diplomatically when asked which nations could not agree. East-West tensions were on display from the outset of the summit, with the two blocs manoeuvring for influence. Xi Jinping, the Chinese president, was feted by PNG officials when he arrived on Thursday to pitch his Belt and Road initiative to Pacific island nations. The programme offers investment in infrastructure to less developed countries. In response, Mike Pence, US vice president, warned smaller countries not to be seduced by Chinese money that comes with strings. The US and its allies, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, countered with a $1.7 billion (1.3 billion)plan to deliver reliable electricity and the internet to PNG. China came away with at least one success. A Tongan official said it had signed up to the initiative and had been given a five-year deferral on loan repayments, as Chinese officials insisted they did not add to the burden on small countries.

Walmart to buy 86 million pesos this year from Mexican products
Walmart to buy 86 million pesos this year from Mexican productsBy Ivan Santiago Mexico, Nov. 18 (Notimex).- At the end of this year, Walmart estimates to buy more than 86 million pesos in agricultural products from small producers in various states of the country, said Gisela Noble, director of the Walmart Mexico Foundation. These are people who are part of the My Little Producer program, which was launched in 2011 and seeks to develop the commercial capacities of small producers to generate marketing channels and increase their productivity. The producers that are selected have access to a comprehensive training and support program that promotes the economy of their regions and communities through the inclusion of their products in formal markets. "68 percent of the Mexican countryside is in the hands of small producers and, if we look at the country, poverty is concentrated in those regions, it is a dynamic that has to do with the small producer can not develop and can not connect with the markets, " said Noble. In an interview with Notimex, she pointed out that they have to sell to local markets or intermediaries that normally do not reflect a sufficient profit for their products, and that is how they end up losing their income and productivity every year. In addition, she added, they do not have access to financing, technology, do not know who buys or how to buy, so "we understood and established the assumption of what would happen if we had a bridge between the producers and the market". "The model that we design helps the producer to know how Walmart buys, we go with technicians to the field and this will help the small producer to work with the agricultural production, with the practices, with all the handling of the cut and the postharvest handling , then comes the whole part of the farmer as an entrepreneur, " she explained. The director of the Walmart Foundation added that the producers are also meeting with the buyers so that they begin to experience what it means to negotiate with the big companies. "The program's potential to generate regional development is impressive because a small producer can start producing and over time expand its production," she said. Gisela Noble pointed out that up to now they have more than 12 thousand small producers and 13 different products are grown in the 14 agricultural groups that are found throughout the country. "We can not be the only buyers, they have the freedom to sell us or not, despite being in the program, so we are also bringing them closer to other buyers, so that they learn to sell," she said. On the other hand, Noble said that each agricultural company is generating about 300 local jobs, for all the work associated with harvesting, cutting, logistics, separation that generates an important economic spill.

Watch Barack Obama surprise Michelle with flowers and tell his version of their love story
News ImageMichelle Obama's Becoming book tour has been quite the hit so far, but at Saturday night's Washington, D.C. stop a special guest brought the event to a whole other level. Michelle's husband, former president Barack Obama, strolled onstage with flowers in-hand to surprise his wife and the entire Capital One Arena audience. And since his former White House advisor Valerie Jarrett was moderating the conversation, he decided to stay and chat for a bit about the book and his love for his wife. View this post on Instagram Look who dropped by tonight! #IAmBecoming A post shared by Michelle Obama (@michelleobama) on Nov 17, 2018 at 8:40pm PST SEE ALSO: Watch Ellen DeGeneres pester Michelle Obama during her book signing Michelle shared a video of Barack casually sauntering onstage on her Instagram Story, which looked a little something like the one below. As was to be expected, members of the audience got their powerful scream on the moment Barack's feet touched the stage. Kelyn Soong, a writer and editor for the Washington City Paper , managed to capture the former president's entire entrance and discussion on camera, and shared it to YouTube for all to enjoy. At around 4:14, after Michelle discusses why it's so important to take the high road, Barack appears, comparing his entrance to "when Jay-Z comes out" at a Beyonc concert. LOL. He then gives the audience a little taste of "Crazy in Love" to keep the energy going. After things settled down a bit, Barack offered a bit of sass, which Michelle was rightfully not having, along with his version of Chapter 8 in Michelle's book. In Chapter 8 of Becoming, Michelle recalls how she remembers the two first meeting and falling in love. "It's true, I just kept on asking her out," Barack explained, admitting he even offered to quit his job so there wouldn't be any conflict of interest. "Here's the main point I want to make: During that summer, even while she was pushing off and trying to set me up with some of her friends who I was not interested in at all..." Barack said. "The thing that I remember during that summer as we became friends, was she was one of a kind." "I had that somebody who was that strong and that honest somebody who I just felt was a rock, somebody who I knew at that point I would always be able to count on, and someone who that if she were the mother of my children I knew my children would turn out extraordinary," he went on. And though, like all relationships, Barack and Michelle have had obstacles, he emphasized, "There's never been a point in which that core thing I saw ever wavered, where i was ever disappointed, or where I wasnt completely in awe of her talent and gifts."
