World - BBC rapped over latest Top Gear `racial` slur


Britain`s broadcasting watchdog criticised the BBC on Monday after Jeremy Clarkson, presenter of motoring programme Top Gear, used an `offensive racial term` in an episode on Myanmar. Regulator Ofcom said that Clarkson`s use of the word `slope`, as slang for a person of Asian origin, was potentially offensive and that the BBC had failed in its duty to viewers by broadcasting it. The ruling comes just three months after Clarkson was forced to apologise over footage in which he appeared to use another racist term as part of an old nursery rhyme during filming of Top Gear. The latest incident involved a two-part special on Myanmar, also known as Burma, featuring Clarkson and co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May crossing the country in trucks to build a makeshift bridge over the River Kwai.

World - Top Gear`s Clarkson used `racial term` in Myanmar special


The BBC`s flagship motoring show Top Gear breached broadcasting regulations over a `pejorative racial term` used by Jeremy Clarkson in an episode on Myanmar, the watchdog Ofcom said on Monday. The regulator said Clarkson`s use of the word `slope` as slang for a person of Asian origin had `the potential to be offensive` both to Asian people and viewers generally. Clarkson used the term in a two-part special on Myanmar, also known as Burma, in which he and co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May crossed the country in trucks and built a makeshift bridge over the River Kwai. Top Gear producer Andy Wilman said his comment, made at the moment an Asian man was seen crossing the bridge, was a `light-hearted wordplay joke.`

Business - After second-quarter profit hit, Hyundai Motor warns of firmer won, slowing demand growth


By Hyunjoo Jin SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea`s Hyundai Motor said its net profit fell the most in five quarters, hit by the local currency`s sharp gain versus the dollar, and warned it sees a tough second half as the won stays strong and global demand growth weakens. Hyundai Motor, the world`s fifth-biggest automaker combined with affiliate Kia Motors, on Thursday reported a 2.24 trillion Korean won ($2.18 billion) net profit for the second quarter, down nearly 7 percent from a year earlier. The fall is the biggest since Hyundai Motor`s net profit slumped 16 percent in the first quarter of last year, squeezed by massive U.S. recalls and labor disputes in South Korea.

Business - Panasonic, Tesla reach agreement on U.S. battery plant: Nikkei


(Reuters) - Panasonic Corp has reached a basic agreement with Tesla Motors Inc to initially supply the electric car maker`s proposed lithium-ion battery plant with machinery to make battery cells, the Nikkei said. Panasonic will likely invest about 20 billion yen to 30 billion yen ($196.4 million-$294.7 million) initially, the paper said. A Tesla spokesman declined to comment on `speculation regarding Panasonic.` Tesla is looking at three sites in the United States to build the plants, dubbed the `Gigafactory`, which by 2020, would be able to make more lithium-ion batteries in a year than were produced worldwide in 2013. Panasonic said in May it wanted to be the sole battery cell maker at Tesla`s multibillion-dollar battery factory.

World - South Africa`s NUMSA union agrees wage deal to end four-week strike


By Zandi Shabalala JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa`s main manufacturing union, NUMSA, has agreed to end a four-week strike after accepting a wage increase offer from employers, union leader Irvin Jim said on Monday. More than 200,000 members of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) downed tools on July 2 to demand higher wages, halting production at automakers including General Motors and hitting work at new power plants. Members of South Africa`s largest union will return to work on Tuesday after it accepted a 10 percent annual pay rise fixed for three years for its lowest-paid workers. A smaller union, the 20,000-strong United Association of South Africa (UASA), earlier said it had accepted the wage increase offer.
