Iran Doubles Down on Demands as Nuclear Talks Resume

VIENNA-Iran made many demands as it resumed talks Monday with the U.S. and other world powers aimed at salvaging the 2015 nuclear deal, doubling down on its position before negotiations first started in the spring and raising doubts over an early breakthrough.

The talks, taking place in the Austrian capital amid a strict coronavirus lockdown, are intended to agree on the steps Iran and the U.S. will take to return into compliance with the 2015 deal, which lifted most international sanctions on Tehran in exchange for strict but temporary restrictions on Iran's nuclear work.

Omicron Variant Drives Rise in Covid-19 Hospitalizations in South Africa Hot Spot

JOHANNESBURG-The emergence of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus in South Africa has driven a sharp increase in Covid-19 hospitalizations in the country's hot-spot province over the past two weeks, although fewer patients are being treated for severe disease than in previous surges, the country's National Institute for Communicable Diseases said.

There has also been an unusually high number of hospitalizations of children under 2 years old around the capital, Pretoria, where cases started rising first, although some of these may be precautionary, the institute said.

Turkey's Lira Crisis Exposes Reliance on Imported Energy

Turkey's currency crisis has exposed a key weakness in its economy: a near total dependence on imported energy to keep households warm and factories humming.

Turkey is surrounded by some of the world's richest reserves of fossil fuels, in the Middle East and Central Asia, but produces little oil, gas or coal of its own. The country imports 93% of the oil and 99% of the gas it consumes, a vulnerability when energy prices in dollars climb and the lira slides.

The agency is planning to move rapidly to take action on a request by the companies to authorize boosters for 16- and-17 year olds, according to a person familiar with the matter. So far, only people 18 years and older are eligible for boosters.

Lululemon Hits Back at Peloton, Sues Over Allegedly Copied Designs

Lululemon and Peloton used to make workout clothes together. Now, they're locked in a legal battle.

FTC Asks Amazon, Walmart for Information About Supply-Chain Issues

The Federal Trade Commission is seeking information from Amazon.com Inc., Procter & Gamble Co., Walmart Inc. and others about how they are handling supply-chain snarls, part of a study into whether the problems have led to anticompetitive behavior and higher prices.

The document request isn't part of any law-enforcement action, the FTC said in a press release. Instead, the agency said it is looking to understand the reasons behind the widespread supply-chain problems that have crimped economic growth.
