Obama and Modi agree to limit US liability in case of nuclear disaster 25.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Decision set to lead to contracts worth billions of dollars but hopes for a US-China-style air pollution deal are dashed

American industrial interests took centre stage at the start of Barack Obama’s visit to India as he and the prime minister, Narendra Modi, outlined a deal to limit the legal liability of US suppliers in the event of a nuclear power plant catastrophe.

Thirty years after an infamous chemical leak killed thousands at Union Carbide’s factory in Bhopal, the threat of tough Indian compensation laws has frustrated US hopes of an export boom in the energy sector – despite an agreement by the former US president George W Bush to share civil nuclear technology in 2005.

Abbreviated Pundit Round-up: Immigration, deportation, consternation 24.1.2015 Daily Kos
Nearly a thousand people gathered to mourn Dr. Michael Davidson at a Wellesley temple Friday http://t.co/... http://t.co/... NY Times : Jorge Ramos, the Univision and Fusion television anchor who is often called the Walter Cronkite of Latino America, was in his suburban Miami broadcast studio when he all but pounced on the chairman of the Republican Party, Reince Priebus, who was appearing from Washington. The Republicans’ immigration policy is “deportations, deportations, deportations,” Mr. Ramos said. “Why?” Mr. Priebus, who stared out from multiple screens in a control room here looking as if he would rather have been doing anything but talking to Mr. Ramos, insisted it was not so.
