  • Tyson Fury vs Manny Pacquiao: Who is boxing's best singer - new heavyweight champ or Filipino icon?

    Tyson Fury's winning singsong in Dusseldorf at the weekend raised a serious question: Is boxing's new WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO and The Ring unified heavyweight champion a better singer than Filipino ace Manny Pacquiao? Just moments after winning a heavyweight blockbuster and giving an impromptu post-fight speech in the ring, Fury showed remarkable composure and confidence, not that he was ever lacking in that, to put in a better-than-karoake performance and sing Aerosmith's 1998 power ballad 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing'. The self-styled 'Gypsy King' is also a self-confessed fan of 'The King' Elvis Presley.

  • Qatar 'shamed' by inaction on labour reform: Amnesty

    Qatar has done "almost nothing" to end labour abuse in the five years since being awarded football's 2022 World Cup despite huge global pressure to reform, Amnesty International said Tuesday. In a damning indictment, the human rights group said the lack of substantive change "shames" the gas-rich Gulf state and FIFA, football's governing body. Its statement was published to coincide with the controversial decision taken on December 2, 2010 to allow Qatar to host world sport's biggest tournament.

  • Saudi Aramco wants 70 pct of $300 bln supply chain spend to be local by 2021

    DUBAI/KHOBAR, Saudi Arabia, Dec 1 (Reuters) - Saudi Aramco wants to double to 70 percent the amount of goods and services it sources from the local market by 2021 as the kingdom's oil giant outlined plans to spend $300 billion on its supply chain in the next 10 years, its chief executive said. The local sourcing target comes at a time of significant financial stress in Saudi Arabia, as the Gulf's largest economy adjusts to a projected period of sustained lower oil prices and subsequent reduced state spending and economic growth. As part of its local focus for the supply chain, Aramco aims to create around 500,000 direct and indirect jobs for Saudi nationals, Amin Nasser said, according to the text of a speech given on Tuesday and published on Aramco's website.

  • UAE says ready to commit troops to fight Syria jihadists

    The United Arab Emirates has said it is ready to commit ground troops against jihadists in Syria and described Russian air strikes in the country as attacks on a "common enemy". Quoted by the official WAM news agency on Monday, Emirati State Minister for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said the UAE would "participate in any international effort demanding a ground intervention to fight terrorism". "Regional countries must bear part of the burden" of such an intervention, he said during a Sunday discussion on Syria.

  • iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus rumors and news leaks

    Enjoying the feel of that sparkly new rose gold iPhone 6S in your hand, and the joy of 3D Touch? Well, we don’t want to spoil that, but Apple’s already working on the iPhone 7, and rumors about it are beginning to spread. Here’s what we think we know about Apple’s next major smartphone release so far. Updated on 12-01-2015 by David Curry: Added in rumors that Apple is testing five different iPhone 7 models with special features like an on-screen fingerprint scanner, wireless charging, USB Type C, dual-camera tech, and more. Apple might add fingerprint sensor on the display Reports from inside China suggest that Apple is testing five models of the iPhone 7, all with one major feature that is apparently in the pipeline for future iPhones. Not all of the features will launch on the iPhone 7, we suspect, although Apple might make a huge leap in technology next year to compete with cheaper, high-end Android phones on the market. Related: Here are all the rumors surrounding the possible release of a 4-inch iPhone 6C The features include wireless charging, fingerprint recognition on the display, multi Force Touch, dual-cameras, and a USB Type-C connector. Previous patents have suggested Apple is working on wireless charging and fingerprint recognition technology on the display, though the patent for wireless charging was filed three years ago. Multi Force Touch and dual-camera configurations would be new for Apple, but dual-cameras have been attempted by HTC in the past to middling success. Of course, it’s unclear which of these features — if any — will make it into the iPhone 7. It may be made of liquid metal and waterproof As we said before, if Apple follows its own mobile trend the iPhone 7 should come with an entirely new design. TrendForce published a press release last month asserting that say the iPhone 7 will be waterproof, which would make it the first such device from Apple. An earlier post made to the Chinese social network Weibo, and reported by Macotakara, also said the iPhone 7 will have a waterproof and dustproof body. Related: Here’s our comprehensive iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus buying guide While water resistant phones have existed for a while, the popularity with manufacturers ebbs and flows, with Samsung choosing to add it on the Galaxy S5, then abandon it for the Galaxy S6. Sony continues to make water resistance a feature on its Xperia smartphones, though it became less prevalent on the Xperia Z5. Another Weibo post talks about Apple using a new, but unnamed material to make the iPhone 7 case, and it won’t be metal. Rumors have spread in the past about an all liquid metal iPhone, but have never come true, and this may signal Apple has decided to go in a different direction with the next generation phone. Apple might be planning to axe the 3.5mm audio jack on the iPhone 7, and replace it with a USB Type-C connector that supports proprietary headphones, according to sources in China. This would be a smart way for Apple to remove third-party headphones that don’t meet Apple’s standards, though it goes against the company’s move to open standards with the introduction of USB Type-C on the 12-inch MacBook. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the iPhone 7 will be the thinnest yet at between 6 and 6.5mm thick. That is around the same as the iPad Air 2, and a millimeter thinner than the current generation iPhone. More RAM and other high-end specs Up until the iPhone 6S, Apple’s phones only sported 1GB of RAM, even though many Android competitors used 3 or 4GB of RAM in their flagship phones. Now, reports hint that the iPhone 7 will get even more RAM than the 6S, with rumors of 3GB of RAM popping up for the iPhone 7 Plus. The claim has been made more than once, and TrendForce is the latest to join the fray. Analyst Kuo also chimed in on the iPhone 7 with another report, claiming it will run on a new A10 chip built entirely by TSMC, a Taiwanese chip manufacturer that has worked with Apple in the past, and built some of the current A9 processors. He also claims the iPhone 7 Plus will have 3GB of RAM, while the iPhone 7 will only use 2GB. Foxconn will apparently manufacture the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and it should launch towards the end of next year, says Kuo. It’s very early days for the iPhone 7, despite what these rumors may make you think. We don’t even know if Apple will continue with adding an increasing number to the iPhone name, or if it’ll come up with something new for this edition. Whatever the case, we’ll keep you updated with all the news and rumors over the months leading up to the next iPhone’s 2016 introduction.

  • Iran pilgrims stampede at Iraq border point

    A mass of Iranian pilgrims heading to Iraq for religious rites broke down fences and injured border guards in a stampede, the interior ministry said on Monday, blaming Tehran. Iranian officials said measures were taken to control the flow of pilgrims at the border while the security forces said they foiled two suicide attacks in Baghdad against the Shiite pilgrims. The Zurbattiyah border point has seen heavy traffic as the pilgrims cross from Iran to take part in mourning rituals for Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Mohammed, who is buried in Iraq.

  • Indian rupee slumps ahead of RBI review, more weakness seen

    By Neha Dasgupta MUMBAI (Reuters) - Heavy sales in equity and debt by foreign investors ahead of an expected Fed rate hike triggered a 2.4 percent fall in the Indian rupee this month, the worst performer among emerging Asia currencies, pushing it to its weakest level in more than two years. Foreign funds have sold a net $1.5 billion in bonds and shares so far this month, their biggest since August, marking a reversal from big purchases since early 2014 that had seen India outperform many emerging markets rivals. The magnitude of the selling, and the impact on the rupee, raise the stakes for the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), which is widely expected to hold rates on Tuesday, as central banks across emerging markets gear up for the U.S Federal Reserve to tighten monetary policy as early as December.

    The Philippines has sought to debunk China's claims to disputed islands in the South China Sea, court officials said Monday as an international tribunal wrapped up a five-day hearing. Although Beijing has refused to take part in the hearing before the Permanent Court of Arbitration, judges have now given China until January 1 to write a rebuttal to the case laid out by Manila in the Hague. "We view China as a valued friend, and it is precisely to preserve that friendship that we initiated this arbitration," Philippine Foreign Secretary Albert Ferreros del Rosario said Monday as he closed his country's case, according to a court statement.
