  • Russia and Turkey refuse to back down in row over jet downing

    By Nick Tattersall and Vladimir Soldatkin ISTANBUL/NIZHNY TAGIL, Russia (Reuters) - Russia sent an advanced missile system to Syria on Wednesday to protect its jets operating there and pledged its air force would keep flying missions near Turkish air space, sounding a defiant note after Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet. The downing of the jet on Tuesday was one of the most serious publicly acknowledged clashes between a NATO member and Russia for half a century, and further complicated international efforts to battle Islamic State militants in Syria. President Tayyip Erdogan made no apology, saying his nation had simply been defending its own security and the "rights of our brothers in Syria".

  • Saudi deputy crown prince says considering subsidy cuts after oil price fall - NYT

    (Adds comment on possible lower oil prices) RIYADH, Nov 25 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia may reduce energy and water subsidies for wealthy citizens among other reforms to diversify its economy away from oil amid a sustained fall in prices, its Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was quoted as saying on Wednesday. The newspaper paraphrased the prince's reform plans, adding: "So even if oil falls to $30 a barrel, Riyadh will have enough revenues to keep building the country without exhausting its savings," but without making clear if that figure was its own or had been mentioned by Mohammed bin Salman. The world's top oil exporter has previously said it was studying increases in domestic energy prices, the introduction of VAT and the installation of nuclear and solar power.

  • OPEC to stay the course despite fears of $20 oil

    By Alex Lawler and Rania El Gamal LONDON/DUBAI (Reuters) - OPEC is determined to keep pumping oil vigorously despite the resulting financial strain even on the policy's chief architect, Saudi Arabia, alarming weaker members who fear prices may slump further towards $20. While Moscow may consult OPEC oil ministers before their six-monthly meeting next week, the chances of it helping to halt the price slide remain slim. "Unless non-OPEC say they are willing to help, I think there will be no change," said a delegate from a major OPEC producer.

  • Iraq is planning a solar powered skyscraper that’s 1,000 feet taller than the Burj Khalifa

    Nicknamed The Bride and intended to reach over 1,000 feet higher than Dubai’s towering Burj Khalifa, the soon-to-be tallest skyscraper in the world is coming to none other than the southeastern Iraqi town of Basra. Designed by the London and Iraq-based architecture firm AMBS architects, the proposed structure will call the shores of the Shatt al-Arab River home, and will supposedly run on nothing but solar energy. To get a sense of just how tall The Bride will be upon completion of construction, you could put Paris’ Eiffel Tower  on top of the Burj Khalifa and still come up short. If it’s ever actually built, the entire structure of The Bride will stand roughly 3,780 feet tall and will be comprised of four conjoined towers, each measuring in at a different height. To make the 230-story, heavens-tickling building even taller, AMBS’s design calls for the construction of a roughly 616-foot antenna at the very top. Moreover, the firm describes The Bride as “the first vertical city in the world,” boasting over 5 million square feet of floor space for hotels, residential units, offices, commercial lots, as well as parks and gardens. Initial rendering of The Bride’s “veil” AMBS “It will be enjoyed by thousands of people in endless ways, within it, on it, or under it,” says AMBS. “From walking in the vast shaded parks and promenades at ground level, to having lunch or shopping in a sky-square hundreds of metres above sea level.” Related: As lavish as ever, Dubai’s Fire Service might soon use jetpacks to fight fires What makes The Bride particularly compelling is AMBS’s intention of making it a net-zero structure, meaning it will to operate on as much energy as it produces. With temperatures consistently reaching 110+ degrees Fahrenheit during summers in Basra, the surplus of solar energy in the region made it a prime candidate to pull off such a design. Concerning the incredibly high heat, AMBS also plans to build what it’s calling a “veil,” in which it aims to cover the skyscraper’s central tower with a glazed canopy to provide public areas with much-needed shade. Though AMBS recently announced the design of The Bride, it refrained from offering a specific date for when construction of the tower would begin.
