Infertility of couples in Kazakhstan is due to 'questionable Western values' and promiscuity

An alarming rise in infertility among young couples in Kazakhstan has been explained by trends observed in the "transitional" period of the 1990s, after that Kazakhstan gained independence (in 1991), tengrinews reports citing the Director of the Kazakh Center for Healthy Lifestyle Marat Kurmanov. Kurmanov said that 30% of young couples in Kazakhstan were infertile, a problem gaining alarming proportions, and this trend was rooted in what had been largely overlooked in the early days of Kazakhstan – values and lifestyle.
“The thing is that this is the generation that grew up at the time of big changes. This is not only the period when the government loosened its control over young people's health. Promiscuity is what characterizes this generation, which eventually led to venereal diseases, sexually transmitted and other," he said of the people aged 25-30.“The government was just rising to its feet, market relations were forming. During this period, ideology was weakened, questionable Western values were instilled and unhealthy lifestyles was cultivated by the media," he said. "We are now reaping the fruits of what was sown a long time ago," Kurmanov said.
He said that a lot of important things were neglected in the 1990s, which is why this “transitional generation” that is 1/3 infertile emerged. But not all is lost.“With the help of the Center for Healthy Lifestyle established 17 years ago, these problems are being addressed,” he said. Moreover, the ideas of healthy lifestyle have been gaining momentum in the Kazakh society over the past years.“Unhealthy lifestyle is no longer fashionable among young people. And this is great. Now the youth is getting a more responsible attitude to their health. Healthy lifestyle is fashionable,” he said.

Oil price falls ahead of Opec meeting

Inventories of commercial US crude oil increased by 1.9 million barrels from the previous week, according to the US Energy Information Administration. Brent crude future's price slid 0.9% to $77.60 a barrel after the data. The drop came as Saudi Arabia indicated it would not push for output cuts to help push up oil prices.The oil market will "stabilise itself eventually", said Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi.
Saudi Arabia is the largest producer of the 12 members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec). The oil cartel is split over how to react to the sharp slump in oil prices. The price of Brent crude has plunged 30% since June, triggered by a sharp rise in US shale oil output and weakening global demand. There is speculation that on Thursday Opec could announce its first cut in oil production since 2009 in an attempt to support the oil price.

Hong Kong protests: Policemen arrested over beating

Seven Hong Kong policemen have been arrested in connection with the beating of a pro-democracy protester. A police statement said the officers, who had already been suspended, were detained on suspicion of "assault resulting in grievous body harm". The incident took place on 15 October during clashes when police cleared an underpass by the Admiralty camp. Civic Party protester Ken Tsang was filmed being led away in handcuffs and beaten for several minutes. Local TV network TVB later aired footage of his assault, and Mr Tsang's lawyer said that the beatings had continued after he was taken to a police station. The authorities suspended the officers and launched an investigation shortly after the clip was aired.

Spain Health Minister Ana Mato resigns amid Gurtel scandal

Spain's Health Minister, Ana Mato, has resigned after a judge accused her of benefitting from illegal payments. Her ex-husband, Jesus Sepulveda, was found to be linked to a huge corruption case involving the ruling People's Party. A court issued a formal ruling which signalled that Ms Mato had no knowledge of any possible crime. The scheme caused a scandal for PM Mariano Rajoy, who apologised after party members were arrested by police.

Russia's Foreign Ministry Slams U.S. as Ferguson Riots Continue

As U.S. authorities deployed the National Guard to deal with riots in Ferguson, Missouri, Russia's state-run media and Foreign Ministry claimed that the protests reflected President Barack Obama's inability to handle his own domestic affairs and the U.S. administration's failure to protect human rights. The events in Ferguson and nationwide protests in the U.S. — sparked by the decision Monday not to indict a white police officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager last August — dominated much of Russia's state-run media reports Wednesday, with programs on state-run channel Rossia-24 and Vesti describing the situation as proof that racism still exists in the country.
Russia's Foreign Ministry chimed in on the situation with a typically scathing statement urging U.S. authorities to focus on domestic problems rather than foreign affairs.

Amid Clamor on Oil Price, Deep Mutual Distrust Divides Russia and OPEC

Amid falling oil prices, a plunging ruble and a gathering financial crisis, then-Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin caught the world's attention in September 2008 as he led an unprecedentedly high-profile Russian delegation to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries in Austria to rally international support for output cuts.
In the last few days, history appeared to be repeating itself. The officials dispatched to Vienna earlier this week were the most heavyweight group to represent Russia at OPEC since the financial crisis. Sechin, the most powerful figure in Russia's energy industry and now the head of Russia's state-owned oil giant Rosneft, arrived Tuesday to hold talks with some of the key players in the cartel, including Saudi Arabia.
While one of the world's biggest energy exporters, Russia has never been a member of OPEC.

AMERICA - Fresh protests across US as fury over Ferguson spreads

Across the United States there have been new protests over a grand jury’s decision not to charge a white police officer with killing an unarmed black teenager. In Ferguson, some 2,000 National Guard troops were employed to prevent a second night of rampant arson and looting in the St Louis suburb.
The scene on the streets was similar in the capital Washington DC, where hundreds marched, crippling traffic on several roads near the White House. In New York, police used pepper spray to control the crowd after protesters tried to block the Lincoln Tunnel and Triborough Bridge and descended on Times Square.

Parigi, armati di kalashnikov rapinano negozio di Cartier

Scene da thriller nel cuore di Parigi. Per circa due ore, la Francia è rimasta col fiato sospeso per la violenta rapina di una boutique di Cartier, con la successiva fuga dei malviventi in scooter e l’epilogo all’interno di un salone di coiffure, con la liberazione di una parrucchiera presa in ostaggio. Un episodio da film d’azione, che si è fortunatamente concluso nel migliore dei modi, senza spargimenti di sangue e con il ritrovamento del bottino.
