A Singapore arbitration panel has put on hold Future Group's $3.38 billion asset sale to Reliance Industries, an interim win for Amazon.com Inc which had alleged the deal between the Indian firms breached some existing agreements. Amazon received an emergency order to halt the companies from proceeding with the deal until an arbitration tribunal is formed, a source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters. Amazon last year bought a 49% stake in Future Coupons Ltd, which owns a 7.3% stake in Future Retail.

In a late gambit to win the battleground state of Pennsylvania, President Donald Trump and his GOP allies have intensified attacks on Joe Biden over fracking, hoping to drive a wedge between the former vice president and the white, working-class voters tied to the state's booming natural gas industry. It relies on a series of confusing statements from the former vice president — including remarks on the oil industry from last week's debate — to claim he intends to “ban” or end national gas extraction, although that is not the Democrat's official position. Trump's fracking play comes as polls show the president is struggling to overtake Biden in Pennsylvania and in need of a boost from the rural and exurban white voters who helped him to a narrow victory in Pennsylvania in 2016.

Thousands of people took to Iraq's streets on Sunday to mark one year since mass anti-government demonstrations swept the country, with police firing tear gas in central Baghdad to stop protesters from crossing strategic bridges and both sides reporting injuries. Protesters marched in the capital and several southern cities _ including Najaf, Nasiriyah and Basra _ to renew demands for an end to corruption by Iraq's political establishment. The demonstrations Sunday are considered a test of the movement's strength following months of inactivity on the street. Despite reaching historic numbers in late 2019 and successfully mounting pressure on elites, the protests have been largely dormant in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Activists also blamed the drop in numbers on a violent crackdown by Iraqi security forces and militia groups, as well as kidnappings and targeted assassinations. The renewed protests are also a test for Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, just five months in power. Al-Kadhimi has been vocal about his support for the protester's demands. His government came to power following the resignation of former Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi late last year. He stepped down under pressure from protests sparked by security forces' heavy-handed response, including the use of live rounds and the killing of demonstrators. More than 500 people were killed during the months-long protest movement, many of them demonstrators shot by Iraqi security forces. The current administration cannot afford to do the same, al-Kadhimi's advisors have said. The government is also grappling with a severe liquidity crisis amid low oil prices that has slashed state coffers by half.

Germany’s coronavirus-tracking app has begun to exchange warnings with similar apps from across Europe as part of an EU-led plan to internationalise contact tracing. The technical frameworks of apps in Germany, Ireland and Italy are now compatible with each other due to the EU's "gateway" system, which allows contact tracing across borders. Four more nations, Spain, Czech Republic, Denmark and Latvia, are set to join the programme in the coming week, with the EU hoping for up to 16 members by the end of 2020. The United Kingdom looks set to be excluded from the scheme due to the country’s departure from the European Union. The system is anonymous and does not allow the identification of individual people, nor can it track the location or movement of devices. Jens Spahn, Germany's Federal Minister of Health, praised the collaborative effort amid rising case numbers. “Everywhere in Europe, infections are on the rise again. Right now, national warning apps are making a real difference. Because every infection chain that, thanks to an app, is broken more quickly helps to contain the pandemic,” Spahn said in a statement. “With the new gateway service, we are connecting apps across Europe. Like this, contacts can also be warned during or following a trip abroad.” Stella Kyriakides, EU commissioner for health and food safety, praised the international functionality of the app, saying “when working across borders these apps are even more powerful tools”. The Bluetooth-based app infrastructure is compatible for use with all countries who have adopted a decentralised and anonymous tracing system – the same system developed by Apple and Google and implemented in the UK’s NHS App – the UK’s acceptance into the framework is “unlikely” due to legal and political hurdles. News websiteTech Crunch reports that in order to be allowed to join the project, the UK would need to negotiate and develop a separate legal agreement with the EU. Switzerland and Norway, as non-EU members, would also be required to negotiate a separate arrangement in order to join the framework. France and Hungary are also set to be excluded from the framework as their apps rely on a centralised data collection system. After initially developing an app which relied upon centralised data storage, the UK changed track in June due to technical issues and delays. Germany made a similar switch in April, mainly due to privacy concerns.

The music industry is generally left out of the fun of nostalgia-baiting reboots and revivals, especially these days when big reunion tours are impossible, but that’s because relatively few artists take advantage of the possibilities of a “sequel album.” Lil Wayne does it all the time, Meat Loaf does it whenever he needs a record to actually sell, and Weezer does it when the band wants to remind everyone of the good old days. Now, the Smashing Pumpkins are getting in on the fun, with Consequence Of Sound reporting that the band will be marking the 25th anniversary of Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness with a “sequel concept album” to both it and 2000's Machina.
