By Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - Before a summit on climate change in Paris next week, many governments are citing scientific studies indicating that their plans to curb greenhouse gas emissions until 2030 will come within 0.7 degrees Celsius of an agreed 2C (3.6 Fahrenheit) target for limiting global warming this century. To avoid the worst of these effects, a ceiling of 2C has been agreed, and about 170 governments have submitted national plans before the Nov. 30-Dec. 11 summit to curb emissions from 2020-30. Christiana Figueres, the head of the U.N. Climate Secretariat, summed up the national plans in a report last month by saying they "have the capability of limiting the forecast temperature rise to around 2.7 degrees Celsius by 2100".

Farmers can set up cartels to jointly sell olive oil, beef and veal without flouting antitrust rules as long as their market share does not exceed 20 percent, EU competition regulators said on Friday. The European Commission said the new guidelines would strengthen farmers' competitiveness in a sector worth more than 80 billion euros (£56.3 billion) annually in Europe. It said the volumes marketed by the groups must not exceed 20 percent of the market for olive oil and 15 percent of the national market for beef, veal or arable crops.

Lin held a news conference at Hong Kong airport on 27 November, a day after she was stopped from entering China, a move she said was punishment for speaking out against human rights abuses in the country.

The president of a students' union has been suspended from his position and banned from campus after he challenged David Cameron's record on LGBT equality, it has been claimed. Adil Waraich, student president of De Montfort University in Leicester, organised a campaign with fellow students after his university awarded the prime minister with its highest honour for overseeing the Same Sex Marriage Act. Waraich was handed a letter by the students' union trustees, and told the suspension was not only due to the protest, but also over concerns about his attendance at senior management meetings and two prank videos uploaded privately online.

By Thomas Escritt BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Kenya backed down from its threat to quit the International Criminal Court, saying fellow member states had given it the assurances it wanted over the trial of its vice-president, but warned that any adverse ruling could change its view. Vice President William Ruto is facing charges of crimes against humanity including murder, deportation and persecution linked to an outburst of ethnic killings after the 2007 presidential election. Kenya said member states at the court's general assembly in The Hague had clarified that a new rule allowing the court to use testimony from witnesses who had since decided to withdraw could not be applied retroactively to cases like Ruto's. Kenya and its African Union allies have been at loggerheads with the court and its primarily European financial backers since President Uhuru Kenyatta, who then faced similar charges, and running mate Ruto were elected two years ago.

The chaotic scenes of Black Friday 2014 have failed to replicate themselves this year, leaving journalists with no words, photographers with no one fighting over TVs to snap, and video crews with empty shops to film.

Doddle's survey continues to drag us into a pit of despair and cut-price garden furniture, claiming these same British adults – these barbaric pushers and shovers – are likely to spend more on themselves this Black Friday than anyone else, forgetting Christmas, less than a month away, is bearing down on us.
