sees signs of progress in talks with Russia on Syria’s chemical weapons 1 of 13. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry (L) and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov shake hands after making statements following meetings regarding Syria, at a news conference in Geneva September 14, 2013. The United States and Russia have agreed on a proposal to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal, Kerry said on Saturday after nearly three days of talks with Lavrov. Credit: Reuters/Ruben Sprich By Warren Strobel and Mariam Karouny GENEVA/BEIRUT | Sat Sep 14, 2013 4:12pm BST GENEVA/BEIRUT (Reuters) – Russia and the United States put aside bitter differences over Syria to strike a deal on Saturday that by destroying President Bashar al-Assad’s chemical arsenal may avert U.S. military action against him. The agreement after three days of talks in Geneva between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov demands that Assad give a full account of his secret stockpile within a week. International inspectors would rapidly get to work to eliminate all the weapons by the middle of next year – an “ambitious” target, in Kerry’s words. If Syria reneges on a commitment to comply, Washington and Moscow pledged to cooperate at the United Nations to impose penalties – though these remain to be determined and Russia is highly unlikely to support military action, which U.S. President Barack Obama has said must remain an option. Kerry said Obama retained the right to attack, with or without U.N. backing.
Krispy Kreme opens first Russia store
Delicate geopolitics, civil unrest, crooked deals, and the sheer logistics of transporting the gaseous fuel stand in the way.The most probable alternative to Russian gas might be right under Europeans’ noses. Ultimately, the trend is toward a more diverse gas mix for Europe, experts say. It just may not happen anytime soon, and it’s unclear who stands to benefit. “No one will win, Russia will just lose,” wrote Daniel Freifeld,founder of Permian International, an investment firm specializingin energy and infrastructure. That has less to do with who builds the biggest pipeline to Europe and more to do with broader economics and politics, according to Mr. Freifeld, whopreviously served as senior adviser to the special envoy for Eurasian energy at the US Department of State . “Europe could win slightly with liberalization of third party access, unbundling, … and construction of interconnectors,” Freifeld wrote in an e-mail, “but I don’t believe any particular state is going to ‘win.’” Don’t tell that to Azerbaijan or Kazakhstan or any of the five countries bordering the Caspian Sea. There’s 292 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in proved and probable reserves in the region, according to the US Energy Information Administration. But it takes a lot of investment to move the product from the Caspian to distant markets, and Russia will do all it can to squelch potential competition from the former Soviet satellites. Turkey is littered with abandoned dreams of pipelines through a “Southern Gas Corridor” that would connect eastern Europe with the Caspian region and the Middle East . The best bet is on theTrans-Adriatic Pipeline, which this summer was selected to deliver gas from Azerbaijan via Greece, Albania, Italy, and onto Western Europe. It has the backing of the US, which has been working since the Clinton to administration to see a Eurasian link. “While the Southern Gas Corridor focuses on supplies to Europe, it also represents an important contribution to global energy security,”Patrick Ventrell, a State Department spokesman, wrote in a statement in June.
The dreaded Lubyanka, home of the security police, looms above one end of the street. At the other end lies the imposing Kremlin, where dark theories regularly emerge about the United States and its eagerness to interfere in Russian affairs. On Thursday, in an opinion article published in the New York Times, President Vladimir Putin scolded the United States for considering itself exceptional. Off in America, President Obama was being criticized by some for handling Russia badly. Has no one told them that here in Great Russia American calories rule? A Subway sandwich shop operates at the other end of lovely old Nikolskaya Street, which also has a Beverly Hills Diner tucked in among expensive Italian clothing stores and elegant restaurants. A nearby McDonalds dishes out one Big Mac after another to a stream of customers. Dunkin Donuts dot the city. Russians are not opposed to what America produces, Agababyan said. The store was brought here by Arkady Novikov, a Russian restaurant magnate who specializes in buzz. An original Krispy Kreme doughnut was about $1.60 Thursday. Thats about a third of the price of a small eclair at one of the citys big coffee house chains. Hes been wanting to do this for a long time, said James Phillips, director of international marketing for Krispy Kreme, who was in town from his office in Dubai.

When I caught up with Michelle backstage, she confirmed to me what I thought: Beyonce is the number one celeb she had in mind to wear the collection. “She’s bold and sexy and would look amazing,” she told me. I totally agree. I picked four looks I could see her wearing, all of which were inspired by a trip to Japan Michelle took this spring. “For me, each collection starts with the fabric, and this was reminiscent of the architecture I saw there,” she said. “I like taking something classically feminine and turning it on its head.” I think she did just that. Come take a look at the Japanese-inspired looks I think Beyonce will be rocking this spring. White honeycomb cropped camp shirt, black micro shorts, and a pouf skirt. White honeycomb T-shirt, black leather cropped overalls. White perforated drop-shoulder sweatshirt; bralette and micro shorts in geranium. Black honeycomb cutout dress, black micro shorts. What do you think of the collection? Can you see Beyonce wearing it?

France Invests 25M Euro To Upgrade Ariane 5 Rocket
But French President Francois Hollande said later in St. Petersburg, Russia, that France would await the conclusions of the inspectors before deciding on action. Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said their findings would be very important for giving “international credibility for whatever happens”. Several other ministers made clear they believed the United Nations should be in charge of efforts to find a solution to the crisis. The EU has been scarred by the experience of a decade ago when a U.S.-led coalition invaded Iraq without U.N. backing. “As far as my government is concerned, the United Nations should be put in a position to draw conclusions on the basis of the reports given by the inspectors,” Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans said. Luxembourg Deputy Prime Minister Jean Asselborn said many EU countries faced a “practically impossible” choice between the position of the United States and France and the basic rules of the United Nations. “We must not forget the political solution before attacking, because once you have struck, the political solution becomes enormously difficult,” he said. “Is it really in the interests of the Syrian people to want to punish Bashar al-Assad through military strikes? I think not.” At a summit of the Group of 20 countries in St.
France Soft-Wheat Crop Seen Biggest in Five Years as Yields Rise
This years soft wheat crop is estimated at 36.7 million metric tons, rising 3 percent from 2012 production of 35.6 million tons and more than the 35.9 million tons predicted in July, a forecast published online today showed. Agricultural cooperatives in northern France last month reported better-than-expected wheat quality and yields, easing concerns that a cold and wet spring would weigh on production and export prospects. Grain-filling conditions in the north were good, Francois Luguenot, head of market analysis at InVivo, the biggest exporter of French wheat, said by phone from Paris. In the south of the country, the first cuts revealed things were mediocre, the northern half didnt have the same problem. Frances soft wheat was fully harvested at the start of last week, according to FranceAgriMer data. Average soft-wheat yields in France are estimated at 7.36 tons per hectare (2.47 acres), up from 7.33 tons per hectare in 2012 and compared with an initial outlook for yields of 7.19 tons per hectare, todays FranceAgriMer report showed. The crop is estimated to be the biggest since a 2008 harvest of 37.1 million tons. Yields are the highest since 2009, when production per hectare was an average 7.71 tons on a reduced planted area. Wheat is a plant with formidable resilience, Luguenot said. In Europe , in our weather context of an oceanic climate, its rare that we have a disaster. Output The Picardie region in northern France overtook the Centre region south of Paris as the countrys largest production area, with output climbing to 4.97 million from 4.5 million tons in 2012, the FranceAgriMer data show. Centres output fell to 4.6 million tons from 4.99 million tons, according to the report. Average yields in Picardie were the highest in France at 9.11 tons per hectare, up from 8.27 tons last year and compared with FranceAgriMers July outlook of 8.37 tons per hectare. France exported 17.1 million tons of soft wheat in 2012-13, up 6.5 percent from the previous season, according to trade data published last month, as well as 1.59 million tons of the harder durum variety used to make pasta and couscous.
France: Assad could strike again if no one acts
Good doctors are overloaded with work and risk their own health to face the demand. Some patients travel to Germany or to the US to receive proper treatment. There are not many Lyme literate doctors in France and you have to be really lucky to be diagnosed properly. Last week a 9 year old kid with a giant painful erythema migrans (the most obvious symptom), fever, and a tick bite, was taken to 2 of the main hospitals in Paris, spent more than a week there in an alarming state, and was then sent back home with a sunburn diagnosis. She was sent back to hospital as she was still feeling really bad, where at long last after a few more days, she was diagnosed with Lyme disease. She was then given 5 days of antibiotics and sent back home. That is not even what the guidelines say. The guidelines recommend 3 weeks. Most doctors here know nothing of Lyme disease, or have false information; for example they think the symptoms are pains in the joints. “When I started researching Lyme disease, I was surprised to see that the word denial was often associated with Lyme. How can an illness be denied?” — Chantal Perrin What do doctors who are not tick borne literate think these sick patients have?
and France accuse the Syrian government of using chemical weapons in an Aug. 21 attack on rebel-held suburbs of Damascus that killed hundreds of people. Obama and Hollande are pushing for a military response to punish Assad for his alleged use of poison gas against civilians though U.S. officials say any action will be limited in scope, not aimed at helping to remove Assad. Putin said Russia “doesn’t exclude” supporting a U.N. resolution on punitive military strikes if it is proved that Damascus used poison gas on its own people, but he questioned the proofs released by Britain, the United States and France as part of their efforts to build international support. Any proof needs to go before the Security Council, Putin told The Associated Press. “And it ought to be convincing. It shouldn’t be based on some rumors and information obtained by special services through some kind of eavesdropping, some conversations and things like that.” Fabius, the French foreign minister, said Syria would certainly come up at this week’s G-20 meeting in Russia. Children walk past tents of a Syrian refugees camp in Yayladagi, Turkey, Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013. The “We will discuss with the Russians, because they are an important player in the region. Up until now they’ve been blocking things.
The French government will be investing 25 million Euro. The current iteration of the Ariane 5 launcher has been in operation since 1997. There have so far been 57 successful launches of the Ariane 5 rocket, and 4 launches in 2013 so far. The most recent launch was on August 29. Through this upgrade, whose cost has been kept to a minimum, Arianespace will be able to keep pace with market requirements and continue to meet our customers expectations. There is a tremendous amount at stake for the launcher industry, which counts over 10,000 employees in France and in Europe, said Arianespace Chairman and CEO Stephane Israel in a statement. Part of the reason for the upgrade is because of trends in newer telecommunications satellites theyre bigger! So the Ariane 5 upgrade will be geared towards being able to support those bigger payloads. The upgraded Ariane 5 launchers will add up to 2 meters in payload height for the companys customers. In a statement, Arianespace confirmed that the added payload height can be accomplished without a performance penalty. The upgraded Ariane 5s are scheduled to roll out in 2015. In the meantime, the current iterations will keep heading toward the skies.

ADVERTISEMENT A spring wedding is planned, the friends told The Mirror. Middleton, the 29-year-old sister of Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, and Jackson, 35, have been dating for more than six months and apparently got engaged prior to the Wimbledon tennis tournament, the British newspaper said. A formal announcement is expected after Pippa’s 30th birthday Friday. “Pippa loved seeing Kate go down the aisle and now it is her turn for a fairytale wedding,” one friend told the Sunday People. “She couldn’t be more sure that Nico is the right man for her. They are such a good fit for each other and their families get on really well.

Kim Kardashian Serves Placenta To Her Family On ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ (VIDEO)
So while Kim might still consider her options post-partum, at least the rest of the family is off the hook. Meanwhile, Rob Kardashian picked up an artistic but very noisy new hobby! Rob started doing wood carvings using just a chainsaw and a stump, and was enjoying it too. “How many opportunities am I going to get to chainsaw some wood?” he reasoned. Rob’s first masterpiece was a pretty well-carved bear (for a first-timer), but Scott Disick disagreed with its placement in the house and accidentally tossed it into the trash! Everyone scrambled to make things right, but it turned out that Rob was fine with it. Maybe carving that wooden Buddha got him in a Zen state? As for Bruce Jenner , he spent the week agonizing over whether or not to go on Jimmy Fallon ‘s talk show. You see, Jimmy had been making fun of Bruce for a long time, and Bruce didn’t want to give Jimmy the satisfaction of showing up.

Salma Hayek: I saw myself ‘completely disfigured in many different ways’ during pregnancy
Actress Salma Hayek just listed her Hollywood Hills home for rent at $9,500 a month. Hayek picked up theOutpost Estates residence for just $537,500in 1996, shortly after her breakout role opposite Antonio Banderas in Desperado. For nearly 10 years, the mid-century modern was Hayeks main residence, until she bought a Bel-Air home from actor Kelsey Grammer. Although that home is much bigger measuring 6,811 square feet to the2,874 square feet of Hayeks Hollywood Hills home the actress doesnt seem ready to get rid of her first L.A. home just yet. Built in 1962, Hayeks home features a traditional California ranch-style layout: a one-story, open floor plan with high, beamed ceilings and large windows. Completely move-in ready by Oct. 15, the house has had recent updates, including new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. Outpost Estates is a secluded neighborhood bordering Runyon Canyon to the west and Mulholland Drive to the north. Developed more than 80 years ago, the area contains many classic mid-century homes and is pretty popular with the celebrity set.
“Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course.” Of course. But that doesn’t mean plenty of women wouldn’t go to drastic measures to look like her. Speaking of which, Hayek advises those who might not be so content with themselves: “You’ve got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best you can with what you’ve got.” “That goes for the figure, and it goes for everything else,” she says. “You’ve got to have a sense of humor about who you are and give yourself a break. You’ve got to be kind to yourself. And it’s not easy, you know?” The July issue of InStylehits newsstands Friday.

I’m a late bloomer; I always have been,” the actress says.

The hands-on mothers tips dont end in the kitchen; Hayek, who globetrots with her family, including husband Francois-Henri Pinault, understands children arent always the best travel companions. Shes on the plane a lot and in the car a lot and sometimes they get cranky. Really, you know what that is?
Salma Hayek breastfeeds a stranger’s baby in Africa after the mother runs out of milk
‘He was very hungry – I was weaning my daughter Valentina, but I still had a lot of milk, so I breastfed the baby. ‘It was amazing because he was really looking at me and he’s very little. My baby is one year so he can suck a lot harder.’ Helping hand: The actress cradles the child as she sits beside the baby’s mother Hunger: Hayek has a one-year-old baby daughter who she is weaning Miss Hayek, who has starred on screen alongside George Clooney and Colin Farrell, was signed up as a spokesman for Unicef last year. Her trip was organised to help raise awareness of tetanus in Sierra Leone, the country with the highest rate of infant mortality in the world. After the breastfeeding incident, she admitted she’d had mixed feelings. ‘I thought about it,’ she said. Proud mother: Salma with her daughter Valentina and in glamour mode (right) ‘Am I being disloyal to my child by giving my milk away? I actually think my baby would be very proud to be able to share her milk. ‘When she grows up, I will make sure she continues to share and be a caring and generous person.’ Wetnursing, or cross-feeding, was common practice at the beginning before the Second World War until the introduction of artificial milk. Miss Hayek said that she had been inspired by a story of her great-grandmother. She said: ‘My great-grandmother was in a Mexican village and they found a woman in the street who was inconsolably crying and the baby was also crying.

The proud new parents look happy and relaxed in the informal images, which were taken by Kates father Michael Middleton in the garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, in early August. CLICK ON PHOTO FOR FULL GALLERY Kate looks radiant in a fuschia wraparound dress, and with her hair in loose curls, as the couple pose with their baby son under the shade of a tree in the garden. One photograph shows mother, father and son, while the other includes the couples cocker spaniel Lupo along with Tilly, a retriever owned by the Middleton family. Baby George is seen sleeping soundly in the photographs, and is wrapped in the same merino wool shawl as when he was carried by his parents from the Lindo Wing at St Marys hospital the day after his birth. The modern Duke and Duchess of Cambridge broke with tradition by issuing personal family photographs in lieu of an official royal portrait and by releasing the photographs on Twitter. Throughout history, portraits of royals have been captured in the form of professional photographs, paintings and sculptures. “Kate has a great eye for pictures and wants the first official ones of George to be natural and in a relaxed environment,” explained a source before the photographs were released. The couple were also keen not to disrupt Georges routine with a formal photoshoot. Prince William admitted that George “doesnt want to go to sleep that much, which is a little bit of a problem,” The couple had been expected to opt for a celebrity photographer. Mario Testino, a friend of Williams late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, took their official engagement photos while Hugo Burnand took the photographs at the couples royal wedding in 2011.
The fuchsia frock, which features a flattering knot front and a deep V-neck ( for breastfeeding, perhaps? ), retails for $79 on Seraphine’s site, but you’ll have to wait until September 16 to purchase your own — that’s right, it’s already sold out. The Duchess Effect has been in full force since the birth of the royal baby in July, with the floral printed Seraphine dress Kate wore en route to Bucklebury selling out immediately as well . (That Jenny Packham polka-dotted number she wore outside of the hospital was one of a kind, unfortunately.) “The Kate effect is huge and we have been enjoying a 400% growth in sales since it became public that Kate bought Seraphine dresses back in April 2013,” Cecile Reinaud, the founder of Seraphine, told Hello! . “A few weeks ago she was photographed wearing our Renata Spotty dress whilst shopping on King’s Road and our sales boomed immediately with the dress completely selling out.” The maternity brand certainly knows what it’s doing: On its site, the duchess’ three dresses are emblazoned with the label “Worn By Kate Middleton.” Hey, they’re just giving the people what they want.

Following the release of of baby Prince George ‘s first official family portrait , the former Jersey Shore startook to her Celebuzz blog to dish about just how adorable the king-to-be is (and, of course, royal mama Kate Middleton ‘s flawless style). ” Congrats to Will and Kate on their beautiful baby boy George !

She is my inspiration for my next pregnancy! “So obsessed with this family and cannot wait to hear more about them! We all know they will be amazing parents to their precious nugget!

He wriggles around quite a lot.” Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge Hailed As ‘Perfect’ And An ‘Inspiration’ Prince William has gushed about his little family (WENN) Commenting on the little Prince’s sleeping patterns (or lack of), the proud dad added: “He doesn’t want to go to sleep that much which is bit of a problem.” As a result the Duke of Cambridge was asked about getting up in the night to tend to Prince George to which he replied: “Not as much as Catherine. But she’s doing a fantastic job”, before adding: “For now, Catherine and little George are my priority.” Ahh how sweet! In the interview, Wills also revealed how much George reminds him of himself and Uncle Harry when they were younger.
Prince William and Kate Middleton want baby George to grow up in the African bush. Sort of.
Sort of. Posted by Kayleigh Dray on 21 August 2013 14:59 Comments Prince William and Kate Middleton , better known to loyal subjects as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, already seem like perfect parents to the royal baby. And now HRH Prince William has revealed that they don’t just want their little boy to grow up happy, loved and well cared for. In fact, he and Catherine are also desperate to ensure that Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge grows up with excellent principles. Speaking to CNN, Wills revealed that, after working tirelessly withBritish conservation charity Trust Tusk, he would love to pass his love for African animals onto his son. And he has a pretty unique way of doing it, too: “Ill have toy elephants and rhinos around the room.” “Well cover it in sort of, you know, lots of bushes and things like that. Make him grow up as if hes in the bush.” Speaking of animals, the second-in-line to the throne also used the opportunity to address rumours that Lupo, his and Kate’s black cocker spaniel, has become jealous of little George: “He’s coping all right, actually. As a lot of people know who have got dogs and bringing newborns back, they take a little bit of time to adapt, but, no he’s been all right so far,” “He’s been slobbering sort of around the house a bit, so he’s perfectly happy!” And, as if he hadn’t made his point very clearly, William added: “For me, Catherine, and now little George are my priorities. And Lupo.” Well, THAT is good to hear. It wouldn’t be the same without little Lupo trotting alongat the Duke and Duchess’ side now, would it? Tagged as:

Are Ashton Kutcher And Mila Kunis Getting Engaged?
Oh, and she earned the title of Sexiest Woman Alive by two different magazines last year, something a lot of people agree with. Ukrainian-born Kunis has said that she cant let all the attention get to her head, however, and tries to stay grounded no matter what is being said about her on the web. What I do and who I am are two different things, she said in an Esquire interview. And they always will be. What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are, and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be.I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am, and so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didnt make them proud. The actress turns 30 today, and several magazines and gossip sites have paid tribute to her with a look back at her evolving fashion sense.
