Mexican president-elect's team hails new trade deal with US

Top Stories - Mon, 08/27/2018 - 13:25

Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's advisers on Monday hailed a new trade deal with the United States, saying it represented progress on energy and wages for Mexico's workers. "We see the agreement announced today as a positive step, because it reduces the uncertainty about our economy and also takes into account the concerns raised by the president-elect's team," said future foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard. Lopez Obrador is a leftist free-trade skeptic, and his landslide victory in Mexico's July 1 elections had raised doubts about the future of the ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Iran's Rouhani asks Europe for guarantees on banking channels and oil sales

Top Stories - Mon, 08/27/2018 - 10:34

(Reuters) - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Monday urged the remaining signatories to its 2015 nuclear agreement to act to save the pact, though France's leader called again for broader talks on Tehran's missile program and its role in the Middle East region. In a phone call to French President Emmanuel Macron, Rouhani said Iran wanted the Europeans to give guarantees on banking channels and oil sales as well as in the field of insurance and transportation, according to the state-run Iranian news agency IRNA. "Iran has acted upon all its promises in the nuclear agreement and, with attention to the one-sided withdrawal of America ... expects the remaining partners to operate their programs more quickly and transparently," Rouhani was quoted as saying.

You can get 200GB of free iCloud storage because even Apple knows its free tier sucks

Macworld - Mon, 08/27/2018 - 10:03

It’s no surprise that the new iPhones are arriving next month. And as always, there are three things to do once you decide to buy one: pick your color, choose your carrier, and back up your old phone.

But if you’re on the free iCloud tier, that last one might be difficult since Apple still only grants 5 gigs of free space to each iCloud user. So if you take a lot of pics or have more than one device, you’re probably not going to have enough space to back up everything you need to take to your new iPhone. That may be why Apple is enticing users to upgrade to a paid plan by offering 200GB of iCloud space, 40 times as much storage as the no-cost tier, for free. Some major strings are attached, though.

Sexually frustrated dolphin named Zafar terrorises tourists on French beach

Top Stories - Mon, 08/27/2018 - 08:23

A seaside village in Brittany has banned swimming on its beach because a dolphin in heat has been scaring tourists and locals by approaching them and trying to rub up against them. The dolphin has even tried to prevent several swimmers from getting back to the beach at Landévennec, using its nose to push one woman out of the water and up into the air.  The beast, often clearly in a state of sexual arousal, also often tries to rub up against kayaks and other small boats. The three-metre long dolphin, which locals have nicknamed Zafar, has been hanging around the Bay of Brest for months, amusing tourists with its antics as it visited the beaches and shorelines of Plougastel-Daoulas, Logonna-Daoulas and Landevennec. Children in sailing schools were delighted when the dolphin would suddenly turn up and frolic around their boats, and Zafar sometimes let swimmers grip onto his dorsal fin and go for a ride with him. But then a few weeks ago he changed. The dolphin rubs himself up against kayaks and canoes “Swimming and diving are banned on the village shoreline… whenever the presence of the dolphin is confirmed,” said a new bylaw issued last week by the mayor of Landévennec, Roger Lars. “Approaching within 50 metres of the dolphin is also forbidden,” said the text. Mayor Lars was not available for comment when contacted by the Telegraph, but he told local media that he had issued the new rules “to ensure people’s safety” after Zafar’s recent bad behaviour. “Several swimmers were frightened. He (Zafar) even lifted up a woman swimmer last Thursday with his nose,” he told Ouest-France newspaper. Local media have been awash with tales of the dolphin’s less savoury antics, with several going into some detail about aghast tourists being confronted with the animal’s sexual arousal. About | Bottlenose dolphins Dolphins do not have a particular time of year when they reproduce and may mate at any time. They appear to have frequent recreational sex and sometimes display sexual behaviour towards other species, including humans. Experts point out that they are very large wild animals and could cause serious injury - even inadvertently with a flipper - if they feel threatened. But attacks or injury to humans by dolphins are so rare that a Breton lawyer says he plans to take legal action to have what he calls the “excessive” swimming ban in Landévennec overturned. “The mayor wants to make dolphins look like almost ferocious beasts, completely unpredictable and likely to drown people,” said Erwan Le Cornec in a statement. “If you were to apply these rules across the board, whenever a pedestrian approaches a dog, even if it is on a leash, all the mayors in… France should issue bylaws banning pedestrians in town,” he said.
