World - In latest move, China halts over 100 coal power projects

China`s energy regulator has ordered 11 provinces to stop more than 100 coal-fired power projects, with a combined installed capacity of more than 100 gigawatts, its latest dramatic step to curb the use of fossil fuels in the world`s top energy market. In a document issued on Jan. 14, financial media group Caixin reported, the National Energy Administration (NEA) suspended the coal projects, some of which were already under construction. Putting the power projects on hold is a major step towards the government`s effort to produce power from renewable sources such as solar and wind, and wean the country off coal, which accounts for the majority of the nation`s power supply.

World - The spy who quit? Lovers keep 007 passive smoking risk up

James Bond may have quit smoking 14 years ago, but he remains at high risk from the puffing habits of his many sexual partners, researchers warned Tuesday. Delving into the British spy`s on-screen smoking history, a team of public health researchers sought to highlight the tobacco hazards faced by the fictional action hero -- and the real-life people he may have inspired. This `would have meant high levels of secondhand smoke exposure for Bond, especially with post-coital smoking, even to the point where one partner used an ashtray positioned on his naked chest,` they said.
