The European Union and the United States share the sam

  e diagnosis of the situation,” Czaputowicz said. “They have a similar perspective of problems in the Middle East, and also — let’s b

 

e open — the negative role played by Iran. … Howeve

n Union and the United States differ in terms of modus operandi, esp

ecially via evaluation of JCPOA or Special Purpose Vehicle and their possible impacts.”

  Czaputowicz said that in talks, representatives of Germany, France, and the United Kingdom had spoken about the benefits of the nuclear deal.

  Secretary of State Mike Pompeo backed up Pence’s aggressive stance on Iran during a press conference at the end of the summit.

  Pompeo was asked about Pence’s criticism of three of the US’ closest allies — the UK, France and Germany — and what

the consequences would be, given Pence’s accusation that they were trying to “break up our sanctions.”

  The top US diplomat sidestepped. “Look, we make no bones about” wa

nting Europeans to put more pressure and sanctions on Iran. “We respect the sove

reignty of every nation,” Pompeo continued. “But the United States is determined to convince all nations of the w

orld that it is in our collective best interest to deny” Iranian leaders the money they need, Pompeo said.

  Pompeo took a stab at some damage control, saying there have been “lots of places” where Europea

n countries have taken on Iran forcefully and mentioned Germany’s decision to deny landing rights to Iran’s Mahan Air.

Samsung said the cameras’ software on all the newphones is abl

  to faster identify what’s in the shot and make suggestions for better framing.

  The four models, which are available for pre-order on Thursday and hit starts on March 8, start at 128GB and go up in cost depending on s

torage size. The devices come in four colors in the US: black, white, blue and a pink inspired by t

he Pantone color of the year (Living Coral). More colors will be available globally.The S10 5G mod

el is the first mainstream device to run on lightning-fast 5G wireless networks later this year. The move could give Samsung a sig

nificant head start in early 5G markets, such as part of the US, South Korea and China, and pit itself as an inn

ovation leader. Apple isn’t expected to have a 5G iPhone until the final quarter of 2020.

  Of course, the 5G network is still in its infancy, which could limit the new device’s true potential.

  ”Some carriers have aggressive launch dates, but full-scale co

verage, like we currently have with 4G, is years away,” Ben Stan

ton at Canalys told CNN Business. “Cellular waves needed for 5G do not travel as far as with 4G and 3G, an

d it will take time for carriers to build a sufficiently dense network of infrastructure.”

An S10 owner must approve sharing battery life with som

  eone else — so you can’t sneakily leave your phone on top of a stranger’s device at a bar — and it’ll autom

atically stop when the host smartphone drops below a 30% charge. An S10 will even charge iPh

ones and other non-Samsung models — a generous feature that’s hard to imagine Apple ever rolling out.

  The company also announced wireless Samsung Galaxy buds ($128) that can be charged when placed on top of a Galaxy 10S displ

ay. (Consumers who pre-order any of the smartphones will get the buds for free).Considering what most sm

artphone users want is a better camera and longer-battery life, the updated Galaxy S line appears to check th

ose boxes and more. Although it’s unclear how the S10 5G will sell, experts argue it’s a necessary step toward the future.

  More wearables

  Samsung unveiled two new smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch

Active ($199) and Galaxy Fit ($99). The water resistant Active smartwatch can monitor blood press

ure, features a breathing app to help with stress and touts sleep tracking. The Fit is a stripped down version of the A

ctive in the form of a traditional fitness tracker. It can monitor heart rate, steps and can go an entire week on one charge.

Japan Inc poured billions into Britain. Now it’s having regrets

  Japan’s top companies are losing patience with the United Kingdom as Brexit fast approaches.

  Honda (HMC) became the latest to reduce its exposure to the British economy, announcing Tuesday that it will shu

tter its only manufacturing plant in the country by 2021, a move that is expected to result in the loss of at least 3,500 jobs.

  The company denied any link with Brexit but auto industry experts sa

id the uncertainty over future market access and the risk of tariffs must have played a part.

  Honda’s bombshell follows the decision by rival automaker Nissan (NSANF) to sc

rap plans to build a new SUV model in northern England. Electronics firms Sony (SNE) and Pan

asonic (PCRFF) have both said they will move their European legal bases out of the country because of Brexit.

  Japanese executives are fed up after warning for years of the risks inherent in a rupture with Europe.

apanese companies tend to invest for the long term

  a very low tolerance for risk, according to Takeshita.

  ”The current situation in Britain is just that — uncertainty,” he said. “Many are backing off.”

  He predicted more Japanese firms will retreat as Brexit unfolds.

  Toyota (TM) warned in December that a British exit from the Euro

pean Union without a deal in place would put at risk vehicle production worth millions of d

ollars a day, but it stopped short of saying it would cut its investment.A senior executive at Nomura (NMR) in N

ovember described Brexit as “a great concern” that will increase costs and risks for financial firms. Nomura has alr

eady started moving dozens of jobs from London to Frankfurt and hiring new staff on the European mainland.

  It’s not just about Brexit

  There are others reasons why Japanese companies are dialing back their commitments to the United Kingdom.

  Advances in technology mean carmakers can now automate more of their supply ch

ains. That has made it cheaper to operate factories in Japan, where labor costs are typically high.

Nissan said this month that it would build its new X-Trail

  rather than in northernEngland”Japanese businesses are seeing returning to Japan as affordable and profitable,” said S

tephen Nagy, an associate professor at International Christian University in Tokyo.

  Honda said it had decided to shut its plant because of “the unpre

cedented changes in the global automotive industry” such as the shift toward electric veh

cles. It plans to move production from Britain to Japan, the United States and China.

  Recent trade deals have also made Britain a less attractive base for Japanese companies after Brexit.

  Nagy pointed to the trade deal between the European Union and Japan, which took effec

t this month, and the agreement between 11 Pacific nations that kicked in at the end of last year.

  ”The UK will not be part of either [deal], making it a much less attractive platform for Japanese businesses,” he said.

utiful bedrooms where every detail is considered are only

  One particularly thoughtful touch is the hotel’s use of photographs. If a couple is celebrating an anniversary, for example

the staff will often track down a wedding photograph and place it bedside during turndown service.

  For a wedding held on site recently, the staff even went so far as to print a photo from the wedding that took place earlier th

at day, to have it ready to display in the couple’s bridal suite after the evening’s festivities.

  For another guest with Irish heritage who was hoping to reconnect with his roots, a staffer wa

s able to track down a local Gaelic hurling club that had a connection with the guest’s family.

  ”He drove [the guest] out to the club where his cousin used to play hurling back, I don’t know, a h

undred years ago,” Heery says. “You know, small things. But for the guest, it was a huge moment wh

ere we’re helping him with his family history.”The secret: A farm-to-table menu unlike anywhere else in Ireland

  The Emerald Isle’s cuisine may be most famed for creative uses of potatoes, but contemporary Irish food encompasses far

more than spuds; highlighting the country’s excellent produce and meat is one of the hotel’s main culinary goals.

  During Adare’s renovation, culinary director Loughlin Druhan loaded his team into a cam

per van and road tripped around Ireland to find the best vendors for every ingredient they needed.

In short, thanks to changes in the internal and extern

al environment, China’s monetary policy is expected to sail out of the “reefs” in 2019, becoming more flexible in maintaining its prudent, neutral, and marginally loose stance.

We believe that comprehensive and targeted cuts to reserve req

uirement ratios, reductions in open market rates, and increased use of targeted medium-term l

ending facility will become the main policy tools of China’s central bank in 2019. Only when extreme changes happen in the internal and external env

ironment (for example, the Chinese economy fails to stabilize in the middle of 2019 and the Fed doesn’t raise interest rates),

will the possibility of lowering the benchmark deposit and lending interest rates rise significantly.
hina will take measures to help domestic soybe

an and corn farmers, while also seeking to expand imports of certain agricultural products that are considered in s

hortage through diversified channels, according to a central government guideline released on Tuesday.

The plan, came before a new round of trade negotiations between Chinese and US officials set fo

r Thursday and Friday, shows Chinese policymakers’ determination to be le

ss dependent on US agricultural imports such as soybeans even if a deal is likely to be reached, industry analysts said.

Germany claims the crown for record gathering of smurfs

group of German friends claimed a world record on Saturday for the highest number of smurfs gathered in one place.

Fans of the blue elf-like creatures created in a Belgian comic strip during the 1950s, managed to gathe

r 2,762 people dressed and painted blue in regulation smurf attire – curly hats and all.

The gathering took place at the town of Lauchringen, near the German border with Switzerland, the organizers reported on Facebook.

Their record came three years after their first attempt failed to beat the record held by Welsh s

tudents who managed to unite 2,510 regulation smurfs in Swansea back in 2009.

The German’s first effort failed, with only 2,149 turning up.

The rules of the game are strict: The only people counted as the genuine art

icle are those with any bare skin painted blue and the rest of the body clothed in smurf attire.

The group of friends made their second, victorious attempt on Saturday with the backing of the mayor of Lauchringen, they said.

The smurfs, small, impish creatures who live in a village, were created by the Belgian cartoonist Pierre Culliford, known as Peyo.

They became so popular that the stories eventually spilled over into cartoons and even live-action films.

bundant mallow harvest a boon for impoverished Iraqis

With rain spreading across Iraq, mallow growing in the northern and eastern parts of the country gives impoverished people food to eat or sell for extra money.

Mallow, or Malva pusilla, is a cosmopolitan weed found principally in temperate regions of the w

orld. It is a fast-growing annual or perennial herb with the capacity to grow in dense patc

hes in gardens, yards, roadsides, waste ground, orchards, pastures and agricultural fields.

It grows without any assistance and easily harvested and so is often called the “food of the poor.”

It is also delicious and good for one’s health.

Thanks to the heavy rain in Iraq, this year mallow spread and were found for collectors to harvest in winter, without any help from farmers.

Some of poor families are able to collect mallow plants and sell them due to its medical value, as it is used to treat some sicknesses and to strengthen immunity.
