EU ready to strike global deal after some regions Britain, France and Germany are ready to water down the EU's position on aviation emissions to try to strike a global deal after some regions threatened a trade war when the EU put in place restrictions on its own, sources close to the talks said. But the sources said the shift in stance by the countries could jeopardise the EU's carbon trading scheme - the central plank of its climate policy - and put them on collision course with the European Parliament, which could reintroduce the EU emissions restrictions if it is not happy with a global deal.

All Nippon Airways A documentary on the late U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye (Hawaii), sponsored by Nitto Tire, has been selected for inflight showing by All Nippon Airways and Hawaiian Airlines beginning on Oct. 1, 2013. Inouye served in the U.S. House of Representatives from August 1959 to January 1963 and in the U.S. Senate from January 1963 until his death in December 2012, at which time he became the highest ranking (Senate President Pro Tem) Asian-American politician and second-longest serving Senator in U.S. history. Entitled "Journey to Washington," the film follows the path of Sen. Inouye, a pioneer in the Japanese-American community who led a vibrant and tumultuous life. It includes interviews with the senator himself as well as people from across the nation whose lives he enriched and was produced by Fujisankei Communications International and made possible by Nitto Tire. The film received a very positive reception when it aired in the United States earlier this year on terrestrial TV stations in Los Angeles, New York and Hawaii and on the TV Japan cable network.
