In a fit of rage, the angry Muslim man molested her before setting her on fire.

The girl somehow managed to survive, but was burned on 99% of her body. Now, she is in constant pain and can barely speak as she tries to recover from her wounds. Her 55 year-old attacker was arrested by police, but continues to say that he did nothing wrong in how he handled the child.

Gulf Arab allies ask U.S. to stop talking about their role in war on ISIL

Special to WorldTribune.com

WASHINGTON — The United States has stopped providing details of Arab participation in the coalition against Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.

Officials said Arab partners in the coalition against ISIL no longer wanted Washington to release details of their operations. They said such countries as Jordan and Saudi Arabia sought to avoid an Islamic backlash from striking ISIL positions in Iraq and Syria.

“They found it very uncomfortable being in the spotlight,” an official said.

The Defense Department has identified Arab coalition partners as Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. In October, the Pentagon released details of Arab air strikes on ISIL strongholds in Iraq and Syria.

By Oct. 14, the Pentagon stopped reporting on Arab participation in U.S.-led air strikes on ISIL. At the same time, officials acknowledged that Arab fighter-jet operations were deemed ineffective, with pilots unable to find ISIL targets.

A week later, the U.S. military said it was ending reporting on the activity of other nations in the anti-ISIL coalition. Central Command did not cite any of the Arab participants, but on Oct. 22, Centcom identified Britain and France.

“Beginning with this news release, out of respect for participating nations, U.S. Central Command will defer to partner nations to publicly comment on their airstrikes against ISIL in Syria and Iraq,” Centcom said on Oct. 21.

Hong Kong’s battle of wills with Beijing: Where are all the other righteous Asian protesters

Special to WorldTribune.com

DonKirk31 Hong Kong’s battle of wills with Beijing: Where are all the other righteous Asian protestersBy Donald Kirk, East-Asia-Intel.com

The demonstrations in Hong Kong are at a critical stage. In the spirit of democracy movements in Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand, these protesters are not giving up.

Unlike demonstrators elsewhere, those in Hong Kong have come up with a defense that I never saw when protesters were rampaging through the streets of Seoul in the 1980s, into the 1990s. They’re holding up umbrellas to shield themselves from the torrents of tear gas pouring down upon them.

UmbrellaStruggle 300x200 Hong Kong’s battle of wills with Beijing: Where are all the other righteous Asian protestersFor all the fervor of the protesters in Hong Kong, however, their valiant stand against the authority of Beijing seems strangely remote, disconnected, isolated from crusades in other large Asian cities.

The conservative government of Korea has no desire to offend Beijing by speaking out in defense of demands for democratic elections even though Korean democracy rose from mass protests against authoritarian rule. And Korean far-leftists amazingly seem on occasion to sympathize with the dictatorship of North Korea, where the least sign of protest means torture, imprisonment and death.

Nor do the Hong Kong protesters get much sympathy in other countries where one might expect them to be admired. Philippine democracy crusaders may rail against U.S.-Philippine war games and against the government of President Benigno Aquino III for handing out funds and favors to corrupt politicos, but they seem barely aware of what’s going on in Hong Kong. As for the communists’ New People’s Army, still spreading terror sporadically around the Philippine countryside, those militants have no interest in a protest led by essentially middle-class young people to whom communism means arrogant rule from Beijing.

In fact, protest in Hong Kong may be more serious than anything we saw a generation ago in Korea. China’s President Xi Jinping is not going to tolerate serious opposition to the heavy-handed, semi-dictatorship that he runs. There’s no way he’s going to give the people of Hong Kong the right to elect their own chief executive, free of control by Beijing. And he’s not about to back down on the ruling that all candidates for Hong Kong’s legislative council have to have Beijing’s approval to run.

So what can President Xi do? We assume he doesn’t want ”another Tiananmen,” a repetition of the terrible episode in 1989 when People’s Liberation Army soldiers roared on to Tiananmen Square in central Beijing, chasing down demonstrators and slaughtering those in their way.

Hong Kong is not Beijing. The central government may have ultimate control, but a bloody end to the current protest could have a rebound effect in which new rebellion broke out not only in Hong Kong but across the line in Shenzhen, the industrial city bordering Hong Kong, and spread to Guangzhou, China’s third or fourth largest city, 130 kilometers from Hong Kong on the Pearl River that broadens into an estuary and empties into the sea between Hong Kong and Macao, the former Portuguese colony.

The prospect of civil war simmers just below the surface. For authorities in Beijing, under Xi’s tight instructions, the solution lies in cutting off services, exercising pressure via economic and political contacts, hunting down miscreants and separating them from mobs massed in the central district of Hong Kong and across the harbor. The drive to suppress revolt may take a long time, but in the end Beijing sees the way to assert its power more firmly than ever before without resorting to rifle fire into rampaging mobs.

The protests, though, are more than just political. They also stand for the desire of enormously wealthy business interests, Chinese and foreign, to remain entrenched in Hong Kong beyond the reach of authorities who exercise far more pressure on similar interests in Shanghai. Yes, Shanghai may have surpassed Hong Kong as a mercantile center, but free enterprise comes with the understanding that final power emanates from Beijing. That’s a lesson that Hong Kongers would prefer not to have to learn.

The fear of revolution overwhelming Hong Kong, spreading like wildfire through southern China, is all the more severe while Chinese authorities deal with discontent and sometimes open defiance from minorities, notably the Uighur population in the north and northeast. Although the central government, ruled mysteriously, secretly, under the thumb of the Communist Party, might appear all-powerful, the country is always in danger of fragmentation despite rising economic prosperity and increasing military displays from the Yellow Sea to the East China Sea to the South China Sea.

The issue is not ideology or the desire to do things differently. The issue is who’s in charge. Yes, it’s hard to forecast an outcome similar to that in Tiananmen Square 25 years ago. The longer the protest goes on, however, the more it’s likely to undermine China’s image and position as a burgeoning world power.

Israel hit Wednesday with first two attacks since Gaza War

Special to WorldTribune.com

TEL AVIV — After a lull of two months, Israel has again been attacked from neighboring Egypt.

On Oct. 22, the Israeli military reported an attack on the army near the southern border with Egypt. The military said two soldiers were injured by anti-tank missile and light weapons fire from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

“About 2 p.m., we had shots and an anti-tank missile fired at a vehicle that was on the border,” Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said.

The attack was the first from Sinai since the 50-day war with the Gaza Strip in July and August 2014. During the war, rockets were fired from Sinai toward the southern Israeli port of Eilat.

“IDF [Israel Defense Forces] is currently trying to gather intelligence to determine who carried out this activity,” Lerner said.

Officials said the attackers were initially thought to be members of Ansar Beit Maqdis, the leading Islamic insurgency group in Egypt. Later, however, military sources identified the shooters as Egyptian drug smugglers. They said three of the purported smugglers were killed by the Israel Army unit.

“There was cooperation between Egypt and Israel,” a source said.

Hours later, Israel reported a Palestinian insurgency strike in Jerusalem. Officials said a car plowed into pedestrians and a baby was killed.

“The driver apparently tried to flee on foot and was shot and wounded by a policeman from the Jerusalem district,” Israeli police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.

Kim is now using his return to public view as part of efforts to craft his image as an “ardent and benevolent” leader who cares about people despite his ailments, they say.

“This shows Kim is still struggling to win [popular] and his status remains unstable,” a government source said. “Kim seems not fully recovered, but he had to hurry to show himself in public eyes because of possible internal instability,” he said.

The 31-year-old leader was out of view for 40 days after attending a music concert with his wife on Sept 3. The unexplained absence fueled speculation about his health with rumors . . .

Gulf states planning first major construction development since 2008

Special to WorldTribune.com

ABU DHABI — The Gulf Cooperation Council plans to launch an ambitious development plan, a report said.

Kuwait 300x181 Gulf states planning first major construction development since 2008

Kuwait / Reuters

MEED Projects said that the six-member GCC would award $180 billion for construction in 2014. MEED said the development plan was not hampered by falling crude oil prices, the lowest since 2011.

“This is driven by substantial projects that were awarded this year by Qatar, the UAE and Kuwait,” MEED analysis director Edward James said.

The report, released on Oct. 16, said all six GCC states would maintain development plans. In 2013, the GCC awarded $156 billion, mostly to state-owned companies.

“We are going to beat the 2013 figure this year with $180 billion worth of contracts awarded,” James said.

The forecast marked the biggest construction spending since 2008, when GCC contracts reached $200 billion. Still, the study said Saudi Arabia, the most powerful member of the GCC, plans to reduce contract awards to $40 billion.

In 2013, Riyad, which deported one million foreign laborers, issued $66 billion in contracts.

“We certainly have seen a decline in tendering and awarding projects,” James said. “Whether or not that’s related to the oil prices is not known.”

Fewer-than-expected listeners tune in to Pandora in third quarter

(Reuters) – Pandora Media Inc, operator of the leading Internet radio service, reported a lower-than-expected increase in listeners in the third quarter, sending the company’s shares down 8 percent in extended trading on Thursday.

Pandora said it had 76.5 million active listeners as of Sept. 30, an increase of 5.2 percent from a year earlier.

Analysts, on average, had expected 76.7 million, according to market research firm StreetAccount.

Total listener hours rose to 4.99 billion from 3.99 billion, but again fell short of the average estimate of 5.02 billion.

“In an increasingly competitive environment, driving monthly active user growth will be more challenging particularly given our already significant market position,” Chief Executive Brian McAndrews said on a call with analysts.

“As a result, looking ahead, expecting monthly active user growth at the historic levels is not realistic.”

Despite its huge user base, Pandora faces stiff competition in the fast-growing business from services such as Spotify, Sirius XM, Apple Inc’s Beats online streaming service, Google Inc and Amazon.com Inc.

Pandora’s profit and revenue both beat market expectations, however, as more people listened to streamed music on their mobile phones.

Mobile revenue increased 52 percent to $188 million, while local advertising revenue rose 118 percent to $41.8 million.

DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD

Rising listener numbers are a double-edged sword for Pandora – the more listeners it has, the more it has to pay in royalties to artists and record labels.

SoundExchange, which collects royalties on behalf of artists and labels, offered a proposal last week that could greatly increase Pandora’s royalty rates from 2016.

“Pandora has paid more than $1 billion in cumulative royalty payouts, and a highest rate among any form of radio,” Chief Financial Officer Mike Herring said on the call.

“We are confident that we have put together the best economic and legal team to represent Pandora and provide a solid, fair and logical argument regarding the (SoundExchange) reproposal,” Herring said.

Pandora reported an adjusted profit of 9 cents per share, on revenue of $239.6 million. Analysts on average expected earnings of 8 cents per share on revenue of $238.49 million, according Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

The company raised its full year revenue forecast to $912 million-$917 million, from $895-$915 million.

It also increased its adjusted net profit estimate to 19-21 cents per share from 16-19 cents.

Pandora’s shares were trading at $21.27 after the bell, after closing at $23.12.

U.S. National Park graffiti vandal spotted through social media

By Eric M. Johnson

SEATTLE (Reuters) – The National Park Service said on Thursday it was investigating a New York artist as a suspect for graffiti vandalism in parks across the Western United States after she posted at least one picture of herself defacing a protected park on social media.

One photo obtained by the blog Modern Hiker and shared with the National Park Service shows the artist putting the finishing touches on an acrylic drawing of a cigarette-smoking woman at Utah’s Canyonlands National Park in June.

Other photographs show other graffiti, such as a woman with blue hair at Oregon’s Crater Lake and a bald man with a snake protruding from his mouth at California’s Yosemite, all signed “Creepytings” and dated 2014.

“It’s especially egregious to a park visitor who has worked very hard to get somewhere as far off as Death Valley or Crater Lake only to be hit by the blight of what you are more used to seeing in an urban area,” said National Park Service spokeswoman Alexandra Picavet.

The woman is suspected for vandalism in at least 10 National Parks, including the Grand Canyon in Arizona and California’s Joshua Tree, where she can be seen in a photograph crawling among a protected cave painting.

The hiking blog sent the photos it gathered earlier this month by screenshot from the suspect’s Instagram and Tumblr accounts to the National Park Service on Wednesday, sparking the investigation.

Picavet said the artist had not been arrested or charged with a crime. Reuters could not independently verify the blog’s report or the authenticity of the photos.

Officials were working out the best ways to remove the acrylic graffiti, which could cause permanent damage, Picavet said.

Vandalism is a federal misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and a $5,000 fine, though the artist could face felony charges depending on which surfaces she painted, Picavet said.

Options investors see good times rolling for Facebook

By Saqib Iqbal Ahmed

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Facebook Inc investors used to wild swings in the company’s shares following its earnings reports are looking for relative calm on Tuesday, after the social media company posts results.

Facebook, whose shares rose 3 percent to a new year-high of $80.63 on Thursday, is scheduled to report third-quarter results on Oct. 28.

The cost of a Facebook straddle, in which an investor buys an at-the-money put option and a similar call option, suggests a move of about 7 percent in either direction by Oct. 31.

That is short of the average move of about 10 percent in Facebook shares the day after the company reported results in the last eight quarters. The stock jumped as much as 14 percent in January, and nearly 30 percent in July last year when the company posted strong mobile advertising revenue.

Given that average, the price of the straddle seems cheap, WhatsTrading.com options strategist Fred Ruffy said.

Facebook’s last two earnings reports showed growing strength in its mobile advertising business and have helped push the company’s shares up nearly 31 percent over the last six months. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 3.5 percent over that period.

On Tuesday, Facebook investors will be looking for continuing signs that mobile ads are translating into revenue, to gauge if the company can keep up its recent momentum, said Baird Equity Research analyst Colin Sebastian.

Facebook was the second busiest name in the options market on Thursday, with 191,000 calls and 153,000 puts traded, according to Livevol Inc data.

Ophir Gottlieb, chief executive of Los Angeles-based Capital Market Laboratories LLC, argues that the relatively calm expectations for Facebook leaves the market exposed in case of a disappointment.

“The risk into Facebook’s earnings is just about lower than it has ever been into an earnings report, while at the same time the stock is trading at an all-time high,” he said.

The company’s 30-day implied volatility, a measure of the risk of big moves in a stock, was at 40.53 percent on Thursday, in the 31st percentile of its 52-week range, Livevol data showed. That implies low expectations for wild gyrations next week, and any deviation from that could hit shares hard.

With people increasingly accessing the Internet from smartphones and tablets, companies such as Facebook, Google Inc and Twitter Inc have been looking for ways to generate more revenue from mobile devices.

“We think Facebook had a solid quarter and all of our checks appear to be positive,” Sebastian said.

U.S. broadcasters win preliminary injunction against Aereo

By Andrew Chung

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A New York federal judge on Thursday barred embattled video streaming company Aereo from transmitting the programs of television broadcasters as they are being shown, blocking its bid to operate like a traditional cable system.

The ruling was another win for major broadcasters, whose copyrights the U.S Supreme Court in June said Aereo violated in retransmitting the programming to subscribers’ devices via the Internet.

Aereo shuttered its service three days after the high court’s decision and has since been pushing the courts and regulators to see it as analogous to cable, eligible for a license under the Copyright Act.

“Doing its best to turn lemons into lemonade, Aereo now seeks to capitalize on the Supreme Court’s comparison of it to a (cable) system,” U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan said in her ruling.

Aereo’s contention that this means it actually is a cable system is a “fallacy,” she said.

Since her ruling now matches decisions against Aereo in other parts of the country, she said the broadcasters are entitled to a nationwide preliminary injunction.

Aereo, she said, “cannot claim significant hardship if an injunction issues, while Plaintiffs can still claim harm if an injunction does not issue.”

“We are reviewing the decision and evaluating our options moving forward,” Aereo spokeswoman Virginia Lam said.

Nathan offered Aereo some consolation in refusing the broadcasters’ demand she also bar delayed programs. The two sides will have to explore that issue in arguing over a permanent injunction.

Aereo’s future became imperiled when the Supreme Court ruled on June 25 that the company had infringed broadcasters’ copyrights by capturing live and recorded programs through antennas and transmitting them to subscribers who paid $8 to $12 a month.

In an emergency plea to Nathan in August, Aereo asked that it be allowed to operate like a cable system, saying it was “figuratively bleeding to death,” but the judge denied the request.

The company also met with officials at the Federal Communications Commission earlier this month in an attempt to be reclassified as a “multichannel video provider” like cable and satellite companies. This would allow the company to retransmit TV signals for a fee.

Aereo suggested such a move would allow for more competition in the video marketplace.

Thursday’s ruling was a victory for broadcasters including CBS Corp, Comcast Corp’s NBC, Walt Disney Co’s ABC and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc’s Fox, which Aereo did not pay for programming.

The case is American Broadcasting Cos et al v. Aereo Inc, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 12-01540.
