U.S., Cuba plan restored relations after 50 years of hostility

The United States plans to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba more than 50 years after they were severed, a major policy shift after decades of hostile ties with the communist-ruled island, President Barack Obama said on Wednesday.

Announcing the end of what he called a "rigid" policy of isolation of Cuba that had been ineffective, Obama said the United States planned to move toward normal ties and would open an embassy in Cuba.

The policy shift will mean a relaxation in some aspects of commerce and transportation between the United States and Cuba, but it does not mean an end to the longstanding trade embargo, which needs congressional approval.

And while travel restrictions that currently make it hard for most Americans to visit will be eased, the door will not yet be open for broad U.S. tourism on the Caribbean island.

Obama discussed the changes with Cuban President Raul Castro on Tuesday in a telephone call that lasted nearly an hour. Castro spoke in Cuba as Obama made his announcement on a policy shift made possible by the release of American Alan Gross, 65, who had been imprisoned in Cuba for five years.

Cuba is also releasing an intelligence agent who spied for the United States and was held for nearly 20 years, and the United States in return released three Cuban intelligence agents held in the United States.

Gross' imprisonment had been a block to any movement by Washington toward improved ties. Obama said Pope Francis had played an active role in pressing for his release.

Cuba and the United States have been ideological foes since soon after the 1959 revolution that brought Raul Castro's older brother, Fidel Castro, to power.

They have not had diplomatic relations since 1961 and the United States has maintained a trade embargo on the island, 90 miles (140 km) south of Florida, for more than 50 years. Obama said he would ask Congress to lift the embargo.

Flashpoints in their hostilities included the Cuban missile crisis of October 1962 that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war. Washington's policy has survived the demise of Soviet communism and the end of the Cold War as the United States pushes for democratic reform in Cuba.

In his remarks, Obama said Cuba still needed to make changes. He said Havana needed to make economic reforms and improve human rights.

Cuban American senators were quick to criticize the moves.

Senator Marco Rubio, a Republican from Florida where a large part of the country's Cuban American population lives, said, "The president’s decision to reward the Castro regime and begin the path toward the normalization of relations with Cuba is inexplicable."

Rouble turmoil leads to Apple halting online sales in Russia

Technology giant Apple says it cannot sell products online in Russia because the rouble's value is too volatile for it to set prices.

The company stopped sales of its iPhones, iPads and other products in the country after a day in which the currency went into free-fall.

The rouble has lost more than 20% this week, despite a dramatic decision to raise interest rates from 10.5% to 17%.

By afternoon trade the rouble was flat with one dollar buying 68 roubles. Its all time low, set on Wednesday, saw one dollar buying as many as 79 roubles.

Apple last month increased its prices in Russia by 20% after the weakening rouble left products in the country cheaper than in the rest of Europe.

Russia's central bank said on Wednesday it had spent almost $2bn intervening in the currency market on Monday.

It has spent around $80bn trying to prop up its rouble this year, but despite that, the currency has lost more than half its value against the dollar since January, with cheaper oil and Western sanctions over its stance over Ukraine the chief factors.

Both of these have weakened the Russian economy.

Russia's central bank has pledged fresh further measures to try to stabilise its currency, with First Deputy Governor Sergei Shvetsov describing the situation as "critical". The rouble's slide this week was prompted by fears that the US was considering a fresh set of sanctions against the country for its support for separatists in Ukraine.

Uber turns to Brussels in battle to gain ground in Europe

Uber has taken its battle for acceptance in Europe to Brussels with a complaint against a French law, the first of what could become a series of challenges to EU member states reluctant to open their markets to the online taxi-booking service.

Launched in California four years ago, the service has rapidly become popular in a number of countries because it often undercuts established taxi and minicab services.

However, taxi drivers across Europe say Uber breaks local taxi rules and violates licensing, insurance and safety regulations. It has faced legal action in Germany and a number of European countries.

Uber last month filed a first complaint with the European Commission against a new French law it says favors regular taxis at its expense.

It says the law discriminates against private-hire vehicles, which it uses, by not allowing consumers to see the location of such cars online - a service it says is available for regular taxis.

"We are looking at existing EU law to defend internal markets," Mark MacGann, Uber's head of public policy in Europe, Middle East and Africa, told Reuters in an interview. "What we find is that market is in fact very fragmented."

The Commission said it had received Uber's complaint and was assessing whether, as Uber believes, France should have notified it of the new law. A spokeswoman said there was no EU regulation on such services.

"So it becomes a national matter, but one does not operate in a complete vacuum and one needs to obey internal market rules," she said.

Uber is seeking to appeal to a new European Commission that is desperate to find ways to boost Europe's stagnant economy and looking to expanding digital services as a pillar of growth.

The firm is also insistent that it is not a taxi service but a technology company enabling customers to find rides.

"We're like Expedia. No one flies with Expedia, but they do book their flights there," said MacGann, who previously worked as a lobbyist for the NYSE Euronext securities exchanges.

Uber is already present in 18 EU member states and plans to be active in all 28 eventually.

With a valuation of up to $40 billion, it has realized it is no longer seen as a little guy battling entrenched monopolies and needs a softer approach.

MacGann said studies in U.S. cities showed established taxis need not see Uber as a threat. "In the U.S., people taking Uber are mostly people not normally taking taxis," he said.

BlackBerry woos keyboard loyalists with Classic device launch

BlackBerry Ltd launched its long-awaited Classic device on Wednesday, a smartphone it hopes will help it win back market share and woo those still using older versions of its physical keyboard devices.

The Waterloo, Ontario-based mobile technology said the new device, which bears a striking similarity to its once-bestselling Bold and Curve handsets, boasts a larger screen, longer battery life, expanded app library with access to he offerings from Inc's Android App store, and a browser three times faster than the one on its legacy devices.

"BlackBerry Classic is the powerful communications tool that many BlackBerry Bold and Curve users have been waiting for," Chief Executive Officer John Chen said in a statement, noting the device brings back the command bar functionalities that helped make its legacy devices easy to navigate.

When the company initially introduced its new BlackBerry 10 operating system and devices early in 2012 it put more emphasis on touchscreens, alienating many fans of its physical keyboard.

Moreover, those who moved to its new physical keyboard devices it later launched were unhappy that command keys like the 'Menu,' 'Back,' 'Send' and 'End' buttons, along with the trackpad had been dropped.

Chen is in some ways taking the company back to its roots, re-emphasizing the physical keyboard with the recent launch of the Passport and the Classic models, rather than trying to compete directly against the touchscreen handsets of dominant rivals like Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Apple Inc.

Chen, who became CEO a year ago, is also pivoting BlackBerry to earn more revenue from software, as system access fees from those using its legacy devices wind down.

Analysts have noted a successful launch of the Classic would accelerate service revenue erosion because the new devices do not generate system access fees. But a jump in hardware revenue from Classic and Passport sales would give BlackBerry time to scale up its software business in 2015.

"We believe that the company's current strategy of staying true to its core user base of business users – in industries such as healthcare, banking and insurance – rather than chasing the mainstream could help to transform the handset division into

a stable business," said research firm Trefis in a recent note to clients.

FIFA ethics investigator Garcia resigns

FIFA ethics investigator Michael Garcia resigned on Wednesday in protest at the way his report into the 2018/2022 World Cup bidding process was handled by Hans-Joachim Eckert, the ethics judge of soccer's governing body.

Garcia said he had lost confidence in the independence of the ethics committee's adjudicatory chamber following a 42-page statement issued by Eckert, based on Garcia's still-secret report, in November.

In comments which are likely to deal another blow to the credibility of FIFA's ability to police itself, Garcia also said that sport's world authority lacked leadership.

UEFA president Michel Platini, a member of FIFA's executive committee, said Garcia's resignation was a step backwards.

"FIFA's ethics committee was created to increase the transparency of the organization, that's what we wanted, but in the end it has just caused more confusion for FIFA," the Frenchman said in a statement.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter added: “I am surprised by Mr Garcia’s decision. The work of the Ethics Committee will nonetheless continue and will be a central part of the discussions at the ExCo meeting in the next two days.”

Former U.S. prosecutor Garcia's report examined allegations of corruption in the awards of the 2018 and 2022 World Cup tournaments to Russia and Qatar respectively.

Garcia, who formerly served as chief federal prosecutor in Manhattan, had appealed against Eckert's statement, saying it contained misrepresentations, but that appeal was ruled inadmissible by FIFA on Tuesday.


"It now appears that, at least for the foreseeable future, the Eckert Decision will stand as the final word on the 2018/2022 FIFA World Cup bidding process," Garcia said in a statement, adding that a further appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport would be impractical.

"No independent governance committee, investigator, or arbitration panel can change the culture of an organization.

"And while the November 13, 2014, Eckert Decision made me lose confidence in the independence of the Adjudicatory Chamber, it is the lack of leadership on these issues within FIFA that leads me to conclude that my role in this process is at an end."

German judge Eckert's statement recommended that there was not enough evidence to justify reopening the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup tournaments.

"The issues raised by Mr. Eckert’s selection and omission of material from the Report, and his additional comments, went far beyond the initial transparency concerns," added Garcia.

"As my public statement at the time explained, the Eckert Decision contained "numerous materially incomplete and erroneous representations of facts and conclusions".”

Rules for babies 'from three people'

The rules for creating babies from three people - which state only two would be classed as parents - have been announced by the UK government.

The fertility technique uses material from the mother, father and a donor woman to prevent deadly diseases.

MPs will soon vote on whether to make the UK the first country in the world to legalise the procedure.

Opponents say it is unethical to make babies with DNA from three people and that it represents a "slippery slope" .

The UK scientists that have led the research hope to offer the procedure next year.

Some families have lost up to seven children to "mitochondrial diseases" that leave the body with insufficient energy to function.

Mitochondria are the microscopic power stations in nearly every cell of the body.

Defective mitochondria are passed only from mother to child so scientists in the UK have pioneered therapies that use functioning mitochondria from a donor woman.

However, mitochondria have a tiny amount of their own DNA so any resulting child would have genetic information from three people. The structure of a cell

Nucleus: Where the majority of our DNA is held, which contains the genetic instructions for building and running the human body

Mitochondria: Often described as the cells' power stations, these convert energy into a form cells can use. They also contain 0.1% of the total number of genes in a person.

Cytoplasm: The jelly like substance that contains the nucleus and mitochondria line

The regulations put before Parliament state:

The fertility regulator must assess each case for a significant risk of disability or serious illness Fertility clinics would need a new licence to offer the technique The woman donating her egg would not be related to the child Any child born would have no right to information about the donor

In practice it means that only the most severely affected women - perhaps 10 cases per year - would go ahead.

And doctors in Newcastle, where the technique has been pioneered, would initially be the centre offering it.

The regulations will remain in draft form until they are voted on by Parliament and are signed off by ministers.

This is expected to take place before the general election in May 2015.

Public Health Minister Jane Ellison said: "The government considers that the time is now right to give Parliament the opportunity to consider and vote on these regulations." Delight

Prof Doug Turnbull, from Newcastle University, told BBC News: "I'm delighted that it's being moved forward to the next stage. It's a long process but it's great news.

"We want to apply for a licence next year and hope to do it [the procedure] in 2015."

A scientific review by the fertility The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority said there was no evidence that it would be unsafe, but called for final checks.

Special Report: Inside Iraq's 'killing zones'

Shi'ite militias and Iraqi security forces, engaged in an all-or-nothing struggle with radical Sunni group Islamic State, are blasting the Sunni farmlands that encircle Baghdad with heavy weapons. Military officers call their target areas in the rural belt "killing zones."

"In these parts, there are no civilians," said Lieutenant Colonel Haider Mohammed Hatem, deputy commander of the armed forces around Abu Ghraib, just west of the capital. "Everyone in these killing zones we consider Islamic State."

The death zones now scar the more than 200 km-long (124 mile) Baghdad Belt, as it is commonly known. Since January, at least 83,000 people, the vast majority of them Sunnis, have abandoned their homes in the rural area around the capital, according to the International Rescue Committee, an aid group. The figure could be higher, but is impossible to confirm because of the poor security situation.

The exodus has turned the farmlands, where Shi'ites and Sunnis once lived side by side, into a no-man's land controlled by the government-backed militias and Shi'ite-dominated army.

Prime Minister Haider Abadi, a moderate Shi’ite Islamist who was sworn into office in September, has sought to curb the violence carried out under his predecessor Nuri al-Maliki. One of Abadi’s first actions was to ban indiscriminate fire against Islamic State fighters in places civilians are also present.

But most ordinary Sunnis have already fled the Belt's rural areas for the capital or big towns, leaving the military and militias to continue to hammer places they consider to be jihadist bastions.

One such killing zone, the Sunni district of Jurf al-Sakhar, was cleared in late October. By then, most civilians had run away after months of fighting, and mortar, rocket and aerial bombardments. The military has now barred residents of the district, which lies close to the Islamic State's stronghold of western Anbar province, from returning.

A Reuters correspondent witnessed Shi'ite militiamen setting homes ablaze during their October offensive. Militia fighters kicked and hit three suspected IS members, and then executed the men with gunshots to the head.

The battle for the Baghdad Belt will help define the future of Iraq and whether it will break up in all but name.

If Islamic State wins control of the Belt, it could launch an assault on the capital and try to bring down the government. The group has already carried out suicide bombings in Baghdad and the Shi’ite south, mortared Shi'ite communities, and ambushed soldiers and militia fighters. It is also killing or expelling moderate Sunnis who reject the group.

Russian economy stagnates in November - on track to recession in 2015

The Russian economy stagnated in November, data published on Wednesday showed, making it even more likely that the ruble's rapid collapse so far this month will push it into recession next year.

Investment by Russian companies, once a staple of the country's economic performance, fell sharper than expected last month, underlining pressure from Western sanction imposed on Moscow for its role in the Ukraine crisis.

Retail sales rose in line with expectations, but at a 1.8 annual increase they were a fraction of what their rise had been in the post-2008 crisis when consumer demand fueled the economy.

The set of data, which also noted some increase in real wages, follows industrial production numbers, released on Monday, showing that industry output disappointed last month, falling by 0.4 percent, against analysts' expectations of a 1.1 percent rise.

"In general the picture is still of an economy that is stagnating rather than collapsing," Liza Ermolenko, emerging markets economist at Capital Economics in London, said in a note.

"The key point however is that these data predate the recent collapse in the ruble. The full effect of the recent events on the Russian economy will only start to show up in activity data next year, but the short point is that Russia is heading for a deep recession in 2015."

The ruble, which fell against the dollar by as much as 20 percent at one point earlier this week, is now trading some 45 percent lower for the year to date.

This poses a major challenge for President Vladimir Putin whose popularity, based partly on providing stability and prosperity, is at risk from the ruble fall damaging Russia's credibility among investors.

Weak oil prices, combined with Western sanctions imposed on Russia for its role in the Ukraine crisis, have significantly limited access to foreign funds, creating concerns that many heavy-leveraged companies may not be able to repay their debts.

"The risks of falling oil prices create additional pressure on the ruble .. it will lead to increase in inflation, maintaining tight monetary policy and to the rising cost of borrowing," said Maria Pomelnikova, an analyst at Raiffeisen bank in Moscow.

On Wednesday, the central bank said it was ready to take additional measures that would lead to faster stabilization of the ruble and ease worries among companies over their debt burden.

The ruble firmed after the announcement, but official forecasts for the economy for next year are gloomy.

The central bank said on Monday it was likely the economy would contract in the first quarter of next year and that it could shrink perhaps by around 4.5 percent in 2015 as a whole if oil prices average $60 a barrel.

On Tuesday, oil, Russia's chief exports, Brent crude oil fell below $59 a barrel, near 5-1/2-year lows. [O/R] "Things have undoubtedly got considerably worse since November, but this is yet to be reflected in hard data," Capita

Sony Pictures warns staff on fraudsters misusing stolen data

Sony Pictures Entertainment advised its current and former employees to be on the alert for fraudsters looking to use their stolen data, which included detailed personal information.

In what is Sony's most detailed description on the types of data stolen, the company listed information such as social security numbers, credit card details, bank account information, healthcare information and compensation and other employment-related information.

Hackers attacked Sony's computer network last month and released sensitive data over the Internet. A group calling itself Guardians of Peace claimed responsibility for the cyber attack that shut down most of the studio's network for more than a week.

Sony, in a memo to staff seen by Reuters on Dec. 2, acknowledged that a large amount of data was stolen by the hackers but had declined to confirm specific documents.

The company is in the process of investigating the scope of the cyber attack and is notifying employees that it would be providing identity theft protection services, Sony Pictures said on late Monday.

Sony Pictures also provided a toll-free number for potentially affected individuals to call to receive information about the identity protection services.

Brazil Olympics: Super-bacteria found in Rio sea waters

Researchers in Brazil have discovered drug-resistant bacteria in the sea waters where sailing and windsurfing events will be held during the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The "super-bacteria" are usually found in hospital waste and produce an enzyme, KPC, resistant to antibiotics.

Researchers found the bacteria in samples taken from Flamengo beach.

Nearly 70% of sewage in Rio - a city of some 10 million people - is spilled raw into the waters of Guanabara Bay.

The bacteria were found in samples taken from several locations along the Carioca river.

One sample was found at the point where the river flows into the bay on Flamengo beach.

Residents have been told to take extra care. Flamengo beach is frequently declared unfit for swimming, but many people disregard the official warnings. 'Not completely clean'

The superbug can cause urinary, gastrointestinal and pulmonary infections. "The problem is that in case of infection it is possible that treatment involves hospitalisation," said Ana Paula D'Alincourt Carvalho Assef, the study coordinator at Rio's renowned Oswaldo Cruz Institute.

"Since the super-bacteria are resistant to the most modern medications, doctors need to rely on drugs that are rarely used because they are toxic to the organism," she told the AP news agency.

In its Olympic bid, Rio promised to reduce pollution in Guanabara Bay by 80%.

But in June Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes admitted the target would not be met.

"I am sorry that we did not use the games to get Guanabara Bay completely clean," said Mr Paes.

The authorities say they understand athletes' concerns but insist that water pollution will not pose a major health risk during the Olympics, which will be held in August 2016.

Tech rivals join Microsoft in fight over US data demand

Apple and eBay are among those supporting Microsoft's stand against handing over data stored in Ireland to the US government.

One year ago, prosecutors issued a warrant for emails stored by Microsoft in an Irish data centre, in connection with a drug-related investigation.

The tech giant refused to comply but was ordered by a judge to hand over the information in July.

Microsoft has now filed letters of support from a large number of allies.

These include tech firms Verizon, Amazon, Cisco and HP, as well as trade associations such as the US Chamber of Commerce, and Digital Rights Ireland.

Various news organisations such as CNN, the Guardian and the Washington Post are on board along with computer scientists from universities across the US including Harvard, Stanford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Earlier this year, New York judge James Francis said that a warrant for online information was the equivalent of a subpoena and had to be obeyed. Privacy rights

The firm and its supporters argue that the centre in Dublin is outside US jurisdiction, while the prosecutors claim that as the data itself is accessible by the firm from within the US, this does not apply.

"We believe that when one government wants to obtain email that is stored in another country, it needs to do so in a manner that respects existing domestic and international laws," wrote Microsoft's Brad Smith, general counsel and executive vice president of legal and corporate affairs, in a blog post.

"In contrast, the US government's unilateral use of a search warrant to reach email in another country puts both fundamental privacy rights and cordial international relations at risk."

Snowden spying leaks prompt millions to protect data

Recent revelations about government-backed surveillance have prompted millions of people to do more to keep their data private, suggests a survey.

Many people now regularly change passwords or avoid certain websites or apps, said the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI).

It also found that 64% of the 23,000 people questioned are more worried about their privacy than a year ago.

About 83% said affordable access to the internet should be a human right.

The survey asked people in 24 countries including the US, UK, Australia and China, about their attitudes to personal data privacy and whether the information released by Edward Snowden had led them to change their habits.

The survey revealed that Mr Snowden's name was known to 60% of respondents and of that group, 39% had done more to protect their privacy in response to the information his leaks have revealed.

Of those, compared with a year ago, more than one-third were updating their passwords more frequently and 43% were taking greater steps to avoid websites and software that might put their data at risk.

'Enormous impact'

The CIGI think tank undertook the survey as part of work for the Global Commission on Internet Governance which is looking into the different ways that the net can be overseen and run.

In a separate analysis of the CIGI survey, security expert Bruce Schneier, said the information about NSA and GCHQ surveillance programs was having an "enormous impact" on people's behaviour.

The CIGI figures suggest, he said, that more than 750 million people around the world have been prompted to take steps to avoid being watched by the NSA.

He added it was likely that the steps that people did take made little difference to the NSA's ability to gather data on them or to defy the surveillance techniques of large firms.

"But it is absolutely extraordinary that 750 million people are disturbed enough about their online privacy that they will represent to a survey-taker that they did something about it," he said.
