World - Early drought warning helps Pakistan`s farmers prepare for dry season


By Saleem Shaikh and Sughra Tunio RAWAT, Pakistan (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Like his farming neighbors, Bilal Khan plants wheat in late October or early November each year, and harvests and sells his winter crop a few months later. In late October, the Pakistan Meteorological Department informed Khan and other farmers that no rain was forecast for the crucial wheat-growing months of November and December in parts of northern Pakistan that rely solely on rain-fed agriculture. The warning was one of the first of its kind from Pakistan`s weather service, aimed at helping farmers look ahead months, rather than just days, and plan for crops more likely to survive drought.

Business - Not `As Seen on TV`: Snuggie maker sues Amazon.com


By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - Makers of the Snuggie blanket and other products sold mainly on TV have sued Amazon.com Inc , accusing the Internet retailer of trademark infringement for letting an `astronomical` number of counterfeit products to be sold through its website. The lawsuit was filed on Monday night by Allstar Marketing Group LLC, Ideavillage Products Corp and Ontel Products Corp, which respectively sell such products as the Snuggie, Copper Fit compression sleeves and Magic Tracks toy racetracks through so-called `As Seen on TV` advertising. It was filed three weeks after Seattle-based Amazon filed two of its own lawsuits in a Washington state court, targeting vendors it said were selling counterfeit goods on its website.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) The heir to the Samsung empire and other tycoons took a public drubbing by lawmakers Tuesday over deep-rooted ties between politics and business that helped drive South Korea`s economic ascent but are central to its political crisis. The questioning on national TV of Samsung Electronics vice chairman Lee Jae-yong, 48-year-old only son of the company`s ailing chairman, and eight other business leaders was in response to prosecution claims that President Park Geun-hye allowed a corrupt confidante to pull government strings and extort big sums from companies. Lee apologized repeatedly, without saying what he was apologizing for, and sought to distance himself from Park`s friend and shadowy adviser Choi Soon-sil.
