Saudi Arabia, Australia and Japan are among the countries asking the United Nations to play down the need to move rapidly away from fossil fuels. Leading scientists in India warn that coal is likely to remain as a mainstay of energy production for decades. Also on the programme: we hear from Sudan where rival protesters have taken to the streets of Khartoum; and how gene silencing, a new medical practice, could be used to stop pain.

In early October, a group lead by the investment arm of the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia purchased Newcastle United, the English Premier League soccer team.  The purchase caused a great deal of speculation that it was motivated by a desire to burnish the image of the Saudi ruler.  What is not speculation is that overnight Newcastle United  became the richest soccer team in the world. On the line with me to explain the significance of Saudi Arabia's purchase of Newscastle United is Alex Ward, national security reporter at Politico and anchor of the National Security Daily newsletter.

Listen and subscribe at www.JustProWrestlingNews.com I'm Matt Carlins and this is JUST Pro Wrestling News for Monday, October 18, 2021. This update is brought to you by IndyWrestling.us. (STINGER: WWE) Tonight's Raw is in Sacramento, California...and it's the last stop before Thursday's Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia. Two wrestlers will punch their tickets to the show tonight. Jinder Mahal and Xavier Woods meet in a King Of The Ring semifinal. Finn Balor awaits in the final at Crown Jewel after he beat Sami Zayn on last Friday's SmackDown. A Queen's Crown semifinal has Doudrop vs. Shayna Baszler...with the winner heading to Crown Jewel to meet Zelina Vega in the final. Vega used a small package to pin Carmella on SmackDown...thanks to an assist from Liv Morgan. Baszler helped Sonya Deville win a 2-on-1 match against Naomi on SmackDown. Also announced for tonight: Charlotte Flair is set to defend the Raw Women's Championship against Bianca Belair. Belair was on last Friday's SmackDown, where she helped Sasha Banks win a non-title match over SmackDown Women's Champ Becky Lynch. The Raw Tag Champs Randy Orton & Riddle have a non-title match tonight against the Street Profits. The Profits lost a Street Fight to the SmackDown Tag Champs The Usos on last Friday's SmackDown. Also tonight, WWE Champ Big E & Drew McIntyre vs. Doplh Ziggler & Robert Roode. Rhea Ripley tweeted Sunday that her gear bag, which was also carrying her WWE Women's Tag Team Championship belt, is missing...apparently misplaced after WWE's show in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday. (STINGER: New Japan) We're into the final week of New Japan's G1 Climax tournament. Monday's matches in the A Block will decide one half of the tournament final. Four men are still alive...and tied at 12 points apiece at the top of the A Block standings: Kota Ibushi, Zack Sabre Jr., KENTA and Shingo Takagi. BUT none of them control their own destiny. Ibushi and KENTA will meet in Monday's main event. If Ibushi beats KENTA...and Sabre loses his match against Tanga Loa...Ibushi wins the block. But if BOTH Ibushi and Sabre win on Monday...Sabre wins the block. If BOTH Ibushi and Sabre LOSE...Takagi can take the block...IF he beats Yujiro Takahashi. KENTA's path is the most complicated. He must beat Ibushi...and also have Takagi lose...OR have Takagi AND Sabre BOTH win. Simple, right? On Saturday's New Japan Strong… Will Ospreay pinned Karl Fredericks with Hidden Blade. After the match, TJP was revealed as the newest member of the United Empire. New Japan announced Buddy Matthews - the former Buddy Murphy in WWE - will be part of its Battle In The Valley show in San Jose on Saturday, November 13th. New AAA Tag Team Champions were crowned on Saturday night's AEW Dynamite. FTR - who entered under the masked guise of The Super Ranas - beat the Lucha Brothers...pinning Rey Fenix after hitting him in the head with one of the title belts. (STINGER: AEW) At least four matches are announced for tonight's AEW Dark: Elevation...including Nyla Rose, Emi Sakura & Diamante vs. Red Velvet, Ryo Mizunami & Kilynn King. The bracket for the 8-man World Title Eliminator Tournament is now unveiled. Matches begin on next Friday's Rampage with Orange Cassidy vs. Powerhouse Hobbs. The winner will meet the winner of a match between Jon Moxley and Dark Order's 10. The other side of the bracket will have Bryan Danielson vs. Dustin Rhodes...and Eddie Kingston vs. Lance Archer. Those two matches will happen on next Saturday's Dynamite. The bracket for the TBS Championship tournament will be revealed on Friday night's Rampage. On this past Saturday's Dynamite...The Young Bucks & Adam Cole beat Dark Order's John Silver, Alex Reynolds & Evil Uno. Malakai Black beat Dante Martin. Martin had Lio Rush in his corner. Bryan Danielson submitted Bobby Fish. Penelope Ford submitted Kiera Hogan. Jon Moxley plowed through Wheeler Yuta in less than a minute. Friday night's Rampage saw Scorpio Sky, Ethan Page & former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos beat The Inner Circle's Chris Jericho, Jake Hager & TNT Champion Sammy Guevara. Sky pinned Jericho after a distraction by Paige Van Zant set up Jericho to be hit by Jorge Masvidal's running knee strike. CM Punk beat Matt Sydal. Ruby Soho used a backslide to pin The Bunny, but after the match...Penelope Ford & The Bunny attacked Soho and knocked her out with a pair of brass knuckles. On the LIVE Buy In on YouTube Friday night...Bryan Danielson pinned New Japan's Minoru Suzuki...and Bobby Fish beat Lee Moriarty.

Your boys are back! In This Very Ring returns and boy do we have a lot to cover tonight. From WWE Draft Fallout, to Crown Jewel Preview, to an absolute clinical slugfest from Bryan Danielson and Minoru Suzuki last night on AEW Rampage. WWE held the draft just a few weeks ago and even though the format may have been confusing, it does yield some interesting (we hope) new feuds. Crown Jewel is live in Saudi Arabia this Thursday as “The Beast” Brock Lesnar challenges “The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship. What role will the advocate/special council Paul Heyman play as his two clients do battle? Who will make it to the finals of the King Of The Ring and Queen's Crown Tournaments? Who will be returning to their respective brands with newfound gold? Sasha Banks? Bianca Belair? Goldberg? So many challenges, so many possibilities. We will also be breaking down AEW Dynamite as it wraps up their special Saturday night edition of the flagship AEW show. All of this and so much more tonight on In This Very Ring!.

With its rich natural gas reserves and strategic location, the Gulf monarchy of Qatar has long played an important role in regional and global diplomacy that belies its small size. It has mediated or facilitated a number of sensitive negotiations, including the talks that led to the peace agreement the United States signed in February 2020 with the Taliban. Since then, and even after the Taliban overthrew the internationally backed government in Kabul this summer, officials in Doha have continued to exercise influence in Afghanistan. Qatar's diplomatic efforts have not always been smooth sailing, however. For more than three years, it had to weather a blockade that was imposed on the country by a group of countries led by neighboring Saudi Arabia and the UAE, fellow members of the Gulf Cooperation Council. That embargo was only lifted in January of this year. Today on Trend Lines, Annelle Sheline, a research fellow in the Middle East program at the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, joins WPR's Elliot Waldman to discuss the unique role that Qatar plays in the Middle East and in the broader Islamic world, as well as the complicated dynamics in the region that it must navigate as it does so.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 12th, 2021. Merck asked U.S. regulators yesterday to authorize the pill it has for treating COVID. If they hear what they want to hear from the FDA, and that could happen in a few weeks, that'd be the first pill shown to treat the illness. There are other drugs, but they require an IV or injection. Merck said earlier this month the pill cut hospitalizations and deaths by half among patients with early symptoms. Meanwhile AstraZeneca's antibody cocktail against COVID, already shown to work as a preventative shot in the non-infected, was also shown to save lives and prevent severe disease when used as treatment within a week of first symptoms. Two new studies indicate pregnant women who develop Covid symptoms risk emergency complications and additional problems, and the disease puts their babies at risk. Of the 100 Covid-positive moms who delivered babies between March and September of 2020 at one Texas hospital, 58% of those with symptomatic infections delivered in emergency circumstances. For those with an asymptomatic case, 46% did. It's a sure way to fight Covid…sue people. A parent in southern Wisconsin has sued their school district after her son got Covid-19 from a classmate. She's upset the board removed a student mask requirement and other Covid-19 mitigation measures in May. Her son, who was wearing a mask, sat next to a kid who had symptoms and was infected regardless. The suit calls for the district to comply with CDC guidelines. Do you habitually smoke weed? Never mind, you don't have to tell me. But you should know a study from an arm of the National Institutes of Health says the risk of getting a coronavirus breakthrough infection in the U.S. may be 7.8% higher among those who habitually smoke weed. The risk is also there, but a little lower, for those with tobacco use disorder. In the United States cases were down 19%, deaths are down 2%, and hospitalizations are down 21% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,793,733 active cases in the United States. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Michigan 21%, Minnesota 16%. Pennsylvania 15%. North Dakota 14%. And Montana 10%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Bethel Census Area, AK. Stark, ND. Lewis, KY. Kodiak Island Borough, AK. Whitley, KY. Knox, IN. Clay, TX. Custer, MT. McCreary, MT. And Big Horn, WY. There have been at least 713,770 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 70.2%, Connecticut at 69.4%, and Rhode Island at 69.3%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are West Virginia at 40.7%, and Wyoming and Idaho at 42.4%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 56.4%. The five countries with biggest 24-hour increases in the number of fully vaccinated people: Oceana, Cambodia up 2%, and Saudi Arabia and India 1%. Globally, cases were down 12% and deaths were down 12% over 14 days, with the 7-day average trending down since August 26. There are 17,913,065 active cases around the world. The five countries with the most new cases: The U.K. 34,320. The United States 29,520. Russia 28,647. Turkey 28,370. And India 19,018.

We're in the thick of the international break and if you're like me, you're counting down the days until Paris Saint-Germain is back in action. Luckily, we have something to help you get through the next few days. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Guillaume Delaporte and Ty Taylor to discuss the fallout of Kylian Mbappé's interviews with RMC Sport and L'Equipe. There's also the interview Mbappé's mother gave to Le Parisien that seemed to contradict some of what the PSG star said. Up first, we dive into the comments from Mbappé, which are nicely summarized by Sporting News. We learned that the player did ask to leave PSG and that the only club he has eyes for is Real Madrid. Guillaume and Ty give their thoughts on the situation and hypothesize how Mbappé's comments might have been received by Nasser Al-Khelaifi, PSG's president, and Leonardo, PSG's sporting director. The Mbappé contract saga has been lingering for at least a year, if not longer, and his comments cleared up a lot of confusion supporters have regarding timing and what has really been offered to him. He also confirmed he said some not-so-nice things about Neymar Jr., which we also discuss. Looking ahead though, the footballing world is still unsure of what Mbappé will do, and his mother only complicated things late last week. In an interview with Le Parisien, Fayza Lamari told the publication (via ESPN) that "we are talking right now with PSG and all is well. I spoke last night with Leonardo. Will we reach a solution? One thing is clear. [Mbappé] is going to give everything until the end to win the UEFA Champions League." As we discuss on the show, Mbappé's decision will likely come down to PSG's performance this season and also Real Madrid's. If the France international clicks with Neymar and Lionel Messi and PSG win the Champions League, he may extend for another two years. If the super team implodes and Real Madrid looks like the better project, Mbappé will likely bolt on a free transfer next summer. We conclude the Mbappé segment by putting a percentage on whether he will sign an extension with PSG and whether the supporters will boo him at the Parc des Princes. Getting away from the Mbappé drama for a second, there was some monumental news in the world of football. Newcastle United FC has new owners! Much like PSG with Qatar Sports Investments, Newcastle will be majority-owned by an investment fund (Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, or PIF). How will this change the landscape of football and should PSG be worried about competition from Newcastle in the transfer market?
