OPEC logo is pictured at its headquarters in ViennaBy Vladimir Soldatkin MOSCOW (Reuters) - As Russian energy minister Alexander Novak flies to Algeria this week for talks with OPEC on output cuts, developments at home indicate non-OPEC Russia is not preparing for any coordinated production action. Five leading Russian oil companies, responsible for three quarters of output in the world's largest producer, all say they will be boosting output next year after reaching record levels in recent months. No doubt, all these companies would obey if President Vladimir Putin ordered them to curtail production.

EU flags fly in front of European Central Bank headquarters in FrankfurtFRANKFURT/LONDON (Reuters) - The European Union may opt out of new global rules aimed at preventing another financial crash because officials are worried they put European banks at a disadvantage at a time when they are losing market share to U.S. rivals. European regulatory and banking sources said the rules, nicknamed "Basel IV" by bankers because they are an addition to "Basel III" capital rules that are already in place, unfairly penalize Europe's banks. U.S. regulators, and other supporters of the proposals, say they are needed to make sure banks have enough spare capital to match the amount of risk they have taken.

U.S. based cleric Fethullah Gulen at his home in Saylorsburg, PennsylvaniaBy Julia Harte and Matt Spetalnick WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A network of more than 150 U.S. charter schools linked to followers of Fethullah Gulen, the Pennsylvania-based Muslim cleric the Turkish government blames for instigating July’s failed coup, has come under growing financial and legal strain, according to school officials, current and former members of Gulen’s movement, and public records reviewed by Reuters. The publicly financed schools, a key source of jobs and business opportunities for U.S. members of Gulen’s global movement, have sharply slowed their expansion in recent years, public records show. The slowdown comes amid a series of government probes in more than a dozen states into allegations ranging from misuse of taxpayer funds to visa fraud.

Outgoing French Economy Minister Macron attends a news conference after his resignationBy Michel Rose PARIS (Reuters) - Inside the election war rooms of Paris, French politicians on both left and right are waking up to the threat Emmanuel Macron poses ahead of next year's presidential election and stepping up attacks on the fresh-faced former economy minister. Macron quit President Francois Hollande's government last month, pledging to "transform France" and taking the most concrete step so far towards a presidential bid he has not yet made official. With poll after poll showing far-right leader Marine Le Pen assured of getting to the second round but losing the runoff in May to whoever faces her, Socialists and conservatives realize Macron's pitch for the middle ground could cost them the remaining place.

Trucks cross Friendship Bridge from China's Dandong, Liaoning province, to North Korea's SinuijuBy Ju-min Park and Tony Munroe SEOUL (Reuters) - From kicking out North Korean workers and ending visa-free travel for its citizens, to stripping flags of convenience from its ships, Cold War-era allies from Poland to Mongolia are taking measures to squeeze the isolated country. More such moves, with prodding from South Korea and the United States, are expected after North Korea recently defied U.N. resolutions to conduct its fifth nuclear test. North Korea's limited global links leave most countries with few targets for penalizing the regime on their own.

By Pedro Fonseca RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazilian police on Monday arrested Antonio Palocci, a former finance minister and presidential chief of staff in recent Workers Party governments, as a sweeping anti-corruption probe reached ever closer to the heart of the left-leaning party. Prosecutors said in a statement on Monday that Palocci acted as a liaison between the Workers Party and Latin America's largest engineering and construction conglomerate, Odebrecht SA [ODBES.UL], between 2006 and 2013 in a political kickback scheme centered on contracts at state-led oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA, or Petrobras. Palocci was former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's finance minister and chief of staff to ex-president Dilma Rousseff, who was ousted in August in an impeachment trial that ended 13 years of Workers Party rule.

Sanchez, whose party came second in inconclusive national elections on Dec. 20 and June 26, has steadfastly refused to support a minority government led by conservative rivals the People's Party (PP).

Samsung announced on Sept. 2 a recall of at least 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 smartphones in 10 markets, including South Korea, due to a faulty battery causing the phones to catch fire, offering refunds or replacement devices using safe batteries. The firm hopes to complete the recall quickly and restart sales in the fourth quarter to salvage earnings, but the latest hitch in South Korea underscore continuing challenges in those efforts.

Google started teasing its October 4th mobile event a few days ago, and if you’re familiar with recent rumors you probably know two things about it: the Nexus phone is dying, and the Pixel phone will replace it. Google will have other hardware on display during the event, but the company is also expected to unveil a massive milestone for Android. Andromeda, as a new operating system is internally called, might be the most important thing coming out of Google’s October 4th event. DON’T MISS: iPhone 7 review “We announced the 1st version of Android 8 years ago today. I have a feeling 8 years from now we'll be talking about Oct 4, 2016,” Google’s Hiroshi Lockheimer said cryptically on Twitter during the weekend. That’s the kind of message the often-accurate Android Police can interpret differently than most of us. The Android site has been sitting on information that something big is coming at Google’s event on October 4th. The announcement is greaterthan Pixel phones and bigger than Chromecast Ultra, Google Home, and Google WiFi, the site says. It’s probably Andromeda, Android Police thinks, the Android version that incorporates Chrome OS. Google has been rumored to merge the two platforms for a while now, and it may all happen next year. AnAndroid operating system that has Chrome OS abilities would put Google in a position where it could propose buyers decent PC computing alternatives to Mac and Windows. Not to mention that Andromeda might be compatible with all Pixel-branded gadgets. https://twitter.com/lockheimer/status/779757830203068416 Lockheimer’s tweet is certainly interesting even if Android Police ’s explanation isn’t true. If Google is going to tease anything Android-related on October 4th, it’s definitely something that will affect the entire future of Android. Color us intrigued, Google!
The Pixel phones may not be the most interesting thing Google unveils next month

If you're looking for a new streaming media player this fall, Roku has you covered. On Monday morning, the company unveiled five new devices on its website — a lineup with some notable additions and improvements over last year's. DON'T MISS:  Every video game launching this fall that you need to know about The Roku Ultra is the company's new flagship streaming box, replacing the Roku 4. It includes several new features differentiating it from itspredecessor, including 4K and HDR video support, a USB port, Optical Audio out, MIMO connectivity and an upgraded remote with gaming buttons and a "Find My Remote" feature. The Roku Ultra will cost $129.99 — the same price as the Roku 4 at launch. If you don't care about all the bells and whistles of the Ultra, you might want to look into the Roku Premiere and Roku Premiere+. Taking the place of the Roku 2 and Roku 3 set-top boxes, both the Premiere and Premiere+ support 4K video, but you'll have to spring for the Premiere+ if you want HDR support as well. The Premiere will retail for $79.99 while the Premiere+ will run you $99.99. Finally, if you haven't entered the 4K era yet, the Roku Express and Roku Express+ are for you. At $29.99 and $39.99 respectively, these two players are not only the cheapest devices in the lineup, but also the smallest. They lack a majority of the features Roku is bringing to the rest of its lineup, but if you simply want to watch Netflix, Hulu and YouTube in 1080p, these should do the trick. The only real difference between these two devices is that the Express+ supports a composite jack and A/V cable for users with older TVs. Roku says that allfive of its new streaming media players are available to preorder right now, with shipments expected to arrive in stores on October 9th. Oh, and if you want a Roku Express+, you'll have to get it from Walmart.

Trump holds a rally with supporters in Roanoke, Virginia, U.S.By John Whitesides HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (Reuters) - Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump will face off for the first time on Monday in a presidential debate that could rank as one of the most watched and highly anticipated political showdowns in U.S. history. The tight race for the White House and the unpredictable clash in styles between well-known but polarizing foes has generated wide interest in the potentially pivotal encounter, which comes six weeks before the Nov. 8 election. The size of the television-viewing audience is expected to challenge the presidential debate record of 80 million who watched the 1980 encounter between Democratic President Jimmy Carter and Republican Ronald Reagan.

Who Are the Syrian White Helmets, Winners of the 'Alternative Nobel'?In the chaos and fog of a brutal conflict that has claimed an estimated 400,000 to 500,000 lives, a ragtag group of former bakers, tailors, salespeople, teachers, pharmacists, painters, carpenters and students has emerged as real-life heroes, providing a glimmer of hope in Syria's brutal five-year-old civil war. The Syria Civil Defense group, otherwise known as the White Helmets, get their inspiration from an oft-quoted verse of the Quran: "to save a life is to save all of humanity." So far, the group of about 3,000 White Helmets have performed that feat some 60,000 times, often working in perilous conditions surrounded by violent conflict. On Thursday, the group won the Right Livelihood Award, often described as the "Alternative Nobel." The group has also been nominated for the Nobel Peace prize, with the support of over 133 organizations worldwide so far.

File photo of an explosion on the launch site of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket is shown in this still image from video in Cape CanaveralBy Irene Klotz DALLAS (Reuters) - A SpaceX rocket that burst into flames on its launch pad ate the beginning of this month likely suffered a large breach in its upper-stage helium system, the company said on Friday. SpaceX, owned and operated by technology entrepreneur Elon Musk, was fueling a Falcon 9 rocket on the launch pad in Florida on Sept. 1 in preparation for a routine test-firing when a bright fireball suddenly emerged around the rocket's upper stage. "At this stage of the investigation, preliminary review of the data and debris suggests that a large breach in the cryogenic helium system of the second stage liquid oxygen tank took place," SpaceX said in a statement posted on its website.

By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - Scientists in Britain have found a new link between the diversity of bacteria in human poo - the human fecal microbiome - and levels of harmful types of body fat. In research that may help explain why excessive weight problems and obesity tend to run in families, the scientists said high levels of visceral fat - which is linked to risks of chronic disease - were linked to having a relatively small range of bacteria in faeces. People with a high diversity of bacteria in their faeces had lower levels of visceral fat, according to the study published on Monday in the journal Genome Biology.

Atsugi Higashiyama of Japan accepts the 2016 Ig Nobel Prize in Perception during the 26th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony at Harvard University in CambridgeBy Scott Malone CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (Reuters) - Scientific research into how polyester pants affect the sex life of rats, what it's like for a human to live like a badger and how different the world looks when viewed through your legs was honored at this year's Ig Nobel spoof awards. The group also took a dig at Volkswagen AG, lauding it in chemistry for engineering its vehicles to produce fewer emissions "whenever the cars are being tested." The prizes will be awarded for a 26th straight year at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on Thursday by a group of actual Nobel Prize winners, and are intended to honor accomplishments in science and humanities that make one laugh, then think. "The prizes are for something pretty unusual," said Marc Abrahams, editor of the Annals of Improbable Research, and host of the awards.

A midshipman fish’s head is shown in this undated handout photoBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In one of the marvels of nature, males of a fish species called the plainfin midshipman that dwells in Pacific coastal waters from Alaska to Baja California court females during breeding season using a nocturnal "love song" with an otherworldly sound. "They are among the vocal champions of the marine environment along with whales and dolphins," said Cornell University professor of neurobiology and behavior Andrew Bass. "The production and hearing of vocal signals plays a central role in their social interactions and reproductive behavior." The plainfin midshipman, up to 15 inches (38 cm) long, generally has an olive-brown color.

The holotype skull of Triopticus primus is seen during preparation under the microscope at the University of Texas, in this undated handout photoBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In a warm, lush region of West Texas crisscrossed with rivers, a bizarre reptile roamed the Triassic Period landscape about 228 million years ago, boasting a bony domed head unlike almost any creature that ever appeared on Earth. Scientists on Thursday described the reptile, named Triopticus primus, based on a fossilized partial skull dug up in 1940 near Big Spring, Texas, that had long languished in a drawer in a University of Texas paleontology collection. The only other animals with comparable craniums were dinosaurs called pachycephalosaurs that appeared about 90 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period and were only distantly related to Triopticus.

Leprosy Found in California Child: How Doctors Diagnosed ItLeprosy has been confirmed in one of two California schoolchildren suspected to have the disease, according to CBS Los Angeles. Health officials were first notified in early September about the two possible cases of leprosy, now usually called Hansen's disease. The diagnosis was confirmed at the National Hansen's Disease Laboratory Research Program (NHDP) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

A majority of Americans now say that a U.S. president should release all of his or her medical information. The poll, which was conducted by Gallup last week, found that a slim majority of Americans, 51 percent, said that a president should release all medical information that might affect that person's ability to serve in office, whereas 46 percent said that a president should have the right to keep those medical records private. The new poll results are a change from the results in 2004, when just 38 percent of Americans said that a president should release all of his or her medical information, and 61 percent said that a president should be able to keep those records private, according to Gallup.

Drug Overdose Cluster in Canada Tied to Opioid-Laced CocaineMore than 40 people in a Canadian city were treated for an opioid overdose this summer after they smoked crack cocaine that had been contaminated with an opioid drug related to fentanyl, according to a new report. In mid-July, a hospital in the city of Surrey, British Columbia, experienced a large spike in patients needing treatment for an opioid overdose — about 11 patients per day needed treatment, up from the usual four patients per day. Most of the patients had become unconscious after smoking what they thought was crack cocaine, the report said.

Spaceflight Is Entering a New Golden Age, Says Blue Origin Founder Jeff BezosEarly Monday (Nov. 23), the private spaceflight company Blue Origin made a major stride in the pursuit of fully reusable rockets, when it launched an uncrewed vehicle into space and then soft-landed the rocket booster on the ground. "It was one of the greatest moments of my life," said Jeff Bezos, Blue Origin's founder, speaking about the landing in a press briefing yesterday (Nov. 24). "And my teammates here at Blue Origin, I could see felt the same way.

Turkey and Football: How Astronauts Celebrate Thanksgiving in SpaceThanksgiving in space will be a lot like the holiday down here on the ground — minus the gravity, of course. Like most Americans, NASA astronauts Scott Kelly and Kjell Lindgren have Thanksgiving (Nov. 26) off, and they'll spend the day aboard the International Space Station (ISS) watching football and enjoying a turkey-centric feast, agency officials said. Kelly and Lindgren gave viewers a look at that feast in a special Thanksgiving video this week, breaking out bags of smoked turkey, rehydratable corn, candied yams and potatoes au gratin.

Although boredom is as familiar a feeling as excitement or fear, science has only begun to understand what makes people bored. Recently, six scientists who emerged after living for a year in isolation on the Mauna Loa volcano as part of the HI-SEAS (Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation) experiment, which simulated the isolation that future space travelers might experience traveling to and living on Mars, said that boredom was their biggest challenge. Boredom "has been understudied until fairly recently, but it’s [worth studying] because human experience has consequences for how we interact with each our and our environment," said James Danckert, professor of cognitive neuroscience at the University of Waterloo in Ontario in an interview with Live Science.

Scientists Look Back in Time at 'Golden Age' of Star FormationResearchers have looked at a famous sliver of sky with new eyes, revealing clues about galaxies' star-forming potential over time and verifying the early "golden age" of rapid star formation. Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), an enormous radio telescope in Chile, an international team of astronomers has pinpointed star-forming gas interspersed among the ancient galaxies of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field — a region first observed in detail by the Hubble Space Telescope. Although researchers have examined the region at radio wavelengths before, this is the most detailed and sharpest view, and it lets researchers see how star-forming potential has changed over the universe's life span.

Brangelina Breakup: What Social Science Says About DivorceBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie fans were left reeling Tuesday morning after news broke that the couple is getting divorced. According to the Associated Press, in the divorce papers she filed, Jolie Pitt cited "irreconcilable differences," a vague term that could apply to any number of reasons. The most common cause for divorce, however, comes down to communication differences, said Nicholas Wolfinger, a professor of family and consumer studies at the University of Utah.

The ancestor of today's rattlesnakes was a serpent to be feared: It had genes to make venoms that would target the blood, the muscle and the nervous system. The eastern diamondback and the western diamondback both have venom that damages muscles, while the Mojave rattlesnake's toxins target the nerves. "This wholesale loss is unusual," study researcher Sean Carroll, a professor of molecular biology and genetics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, said in a statement.
