Obama and Castro shake hands, Zuma... By Stella Mapenzauswa and Steve Holland JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama shook hands with Cuba's Raul Castro at a memorial for Nelson Mandela on Tuesday, a rare gesture between the leaders of two ideological opponents that reflected the anti-apartheid hero's spirit of reconciliation. But the peace and harmony did not stretch to South African President Jacob Zuma, whom the crowd at the rain-soaked Soccer City stadium in Johannesburg booed and jeered as he prepared to give his closing address. Mandela's death at the age of 95 has diverted attention from a slew of corruption scandals in Zuma's administration, while underscoring the gulf between South Africa's first black president, a giant of the 20th century, and its fourth. "But what Zuma speaks, he doesn't live. Posted on 10 December 2013 | 4:35 pm
Iran sees progress in talks with... By Fredrik Dahl VIENNA (Reuters) - Senior Iranian officials indicated on Tuesday that progress was being achieved in expert-level talks between Tehran and six world powers over the implementation of a landmark nuclear deal. The goal is to work out details on implementing the November 24 interim accord under which Iran will curb its disputed nuclear program in return for some easing of sanctions that have battered its oil-dependent economy. "The discussions are very smooth," Hamid Baeedinejad, head of the Iranian delegation, said after the second day of talks. "We have made our views known to each other with regard to the implementation aspects of each and every measure. Posted on 10 December 2013 | 4:29 pm
French forces kill 19 Islamist... French forces have killed 19 Islamist fighters during security operations in Mali's northern region of Timbuktu, a senior French officer in the West African nation said on Tuesday. Pockets of al Qaeda-linked fighters are still holding out across the north, nearly a year into a French offensive aimed at driving them from the desert region they occupied for most of 2012 after hijacking a rebellion by Tuareg separatists. "There were clashes north of Timbuktu on the road to Taoudenit. After being scattered across Mali and into neighboring countries, Islamist groups have stepped up their operations in recent months.

Japan household helper plan shows... By Lisa Twaronite TOKYO (Reuters) - During the early days of "Abenomics," U.S. businesses were optimistic they could convince Japan's government to make a small change to the nation's tight immigration rules to let more household helpers into the country. But a year after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took office, an idea that some thought might be an easy win for immigration reform while meeting a stated aim of Abe's growth strategy has made no apparent progress. ...

Condemned Islamist leader wins... By Serajul Quadir and Ruma Paul DHAKA (Reuters) - An Islamist opposition leader in Bangladesh won a dramatic stay of execution on Tuesday hours before he was due to be hanged, according to his lawyers, allaying fears for now of a violent backlash less than a month before elections are due. Abdul Quader Mollah, who was found guilty in February of war crimes committed during the 1971 war of independence from Pakistan, was due to be hanged at one minute past midnight (1801 GMT) at Dhaka Central Jail. But Mollah's lawyers rushed to petition a judge, who agreed to delay the execution pending a hearing at 10.30 a.m. Ending widespread confusion and conflicting reports, Additional Attorney General M. K. Rahman finally confirmed the two sides in the case would meet at the Supreme Court. He said there was no legal provision for the execution to be reviewed, because the trial had been held by a special war crimes tribunal and thus under separate law.

"When you own or take responsibility for your feelings, you place yourself in a position of power and control." -Julie A., M.A. Ross and Judy Corcoran "That's what building a body of work is all about. It's about the daily labor, the many individual acts, the choices large and small that add up over time, over a lifetime to a lasting legacy. It's about not being satisfied with the latest achievement, the latest gold star, because the one thing I know about a body of work is that it's never finished. It's cumulative. It deepens and expands with each day you give your best. You may have setbacks and you may have failures, but you're not done. You haven't even started." -Barack Obama "I still need more healthy rest in order to work at my best. My health is the main capital I have and I want to administer it intelligently." -Ernest Hemingway "The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings." -Okakura Kakuzo
"People care more about being thought to have taste than about being thought either good, clever or amiable." -Samuel Butler "Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable." -Sidney J.
