• Arsenal Supporters' Trust urges review of transfer policy

    (Reuters) - The Arsenal Supporters' Trust has called on the Premier League club to carry out a "full review" of recruitment policy following a quiet transfer window where goalkeeper Petr Cech was the only major addition to Arsene Wenger's squad. Cech arrived from Chelsea for a reported 10 million pounds, while 17-year-old Frenchman Jeff Reine-Adelaide joined from Ligue 2 side Lens along with a flurry of academy recruits. In July, Arsenal director Philip Harris said the Gunners had the money to sign "anyone but Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi" and had over 200 million pounds in the bank.

  • Pas’ Dr Hatta has divorced wife, insists Kelantan MB

    KOTA BARU: Kuala Krai member of Parliament Dr Hatta Ramli has “automatically” divorced his wife with ‘talak tiga’ status by leaving Pas and joining breakaway group Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah). Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yaakob, who is Pas state commissioner, said this was due to Dr Hatta having formerly signed a ‘bai’ah’ with Pas which states that should he ever leave the party and join another, his divorce would follow suit. Ahmad said the state liaison committee and the party's secretary-general would be writing to Dr Hatta on the matter soon.

  • World on track for warming 'far above' 2C target: analysts

    Inadequate national targets for curbing climate-altering greenhouse gases meant emissions would be "far above" the level required to stave off disastrous global warming, analysts warned Wednesday. Instead of the UN-targeted ceiling of two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) of average warming over pre-Industrial Revolution levels, the world was on track for 2.9-3.1 C by 2100, according to the Climate Action Tracker (CAT), a tool developed by a consortium of four research organisations. "The climate targets so far submitted to the UN by governments collectively lead to global emissions far above the levels needed to hold warming to below 2 C," said a CAT statement.
