  • Delhi woman who sued Uber over rape accusation ends U.S. lawsuit

    By Dan Levine SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A woman who sued Uber after accusing one of its drivers of raping her in India has voluntarily ended her lawsuit against the company, according to a court filing on Tuesday. The passenger, who reported being raped and beaten after hailing a ride with the Uber driver in Delhi last year, sued the online car service in a U.S. federal court in January, claiming the company failed to maintain basic safety procedures. Uber's Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick at the time called the incident "horrific" and pledged to help "bring this perpetrator to justice." However, Uber also argued in court filings that the woman sued the wrong corporate entity as the driver had a contract with Uber B.V., a Netherlands-based entity with no U.S. operations.

  • By destroying 2,000-year-old Palmyra, Islamic State has demolished Syria's proud heritage

    Damascus, Syria: Palmyra, the ancient Syrian city that has fallen to the Islamic State jihadist group, has withstood the last 2,000 years with its immaculate temples and colonnaded streets.Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, the "pearl of the desert" is a well-preserved oasis 210 kilometres (130 miles) northeast of Damascus.Palmyra, which means City of Palms, is known in Syria as Tadmor, or City of Dates. Its name first appeared on a tablet in the 19th Century BC as a stopping point for caravans travelling on the Silk Road and between the Gulf and the Mediterranean.But it was during the Roman Empire, beginning in the 1st Century BC and lasting another 400 years, that Palmyra rose to prominence.Though surrounded by desert dunes, Palmyra developed into a luxurious metropolis thanks to the trade of spices, perfumes, silk and ivory from the east, and statues and glasswork from Phoenicia.In the year 129 AD, Roman emperor Hadrian declared Palmyra a "free city" within his empire.

  • Monsoon may start withdrawing from North-West India from Tuesday

    With the four-month-long monsoon entering the last month of September on Tuesday, the rain deficit for the country as a whole is likely to grow beyond the 12 per cent forecast by the India Met Department. Model analyses suggest that the monsoon may start to withdraw from extreme northwest (Rajasthan) on Tuesday to signal the start of the month-long process. The withdrawal takes place in an elaborate swipe of the air in the Northeast-East-Southeast-South-Southwest (clock-wise) direction when monsoonal rain evaporates from the surface covered. By the second week of September, it would cover North and North-West India and parts of adjoining Central India, says an assessment of the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology.
