    Russia to launch Soyuz rocket again, just days after catastrophic failed mission

    Russia will launch its Soyuz rocket again, just days after a catastrophic failure that forced the astronauts on board into a crashing landing. The next mission will not include any people and instead carry a military satellite into space, according to the Interfax news agency, which cited a source in the space agency. Rocket launches have been suspended since Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and American astronaut Nick Hague had to abort their mission and perform an emergency landing after the Soyuz that was supposed to carry them to the International Space Station failed.

    The more chaotic Brexit becomes, the more I back calls for a people’s vote

    At this stage of the game, the only dependable feature of the Brexit negotiations is their tawdriness. The Prime Minister, in Brussels this evening, will address her fellow EU heads of government — but not join them for dinner. Like National Union of Students activists pre-caucusing a meeting, eight senior ministers gathered in Leader of the House Andrea Leadsom’s office on Monday to plan their strategy for yesterday’s official Cabinet meeting — plotting in plain sight, so to speak.

    Bodycams lead to major reduction in attacks on Virgin Trains staff

    Attacks on rail staff have more than halved since an operator introduced body worn cameras, new figures show. Virgin Trains said the number of assaults on its employees has fallen month by month following the introduction of 275 cameras in February to ensure all frontline workers are covered. Footage from the cameras has led to one conviction, when a man pleaded guilty to a public order offence following an incident on a train at Wolverhampton in April.

    Philippine watchdog fines Grab, Uber for rushed merger, drop in service quality

    The Philippines' competition watchdog fined ride-hailing firms Grab and Uber Technologies on Wednesday, saying they consummated their merger too soon and that the quality of service dipped, becoming the second regulator in the region to penalize them. Uber [UBER.UL] sold its money-losing Southeast Asian business to bigger regional rival Grab in March, prompting regulators in the region to scrutinize the deal to see if it substantially reduces competition and leads to poor service. The Philippine Competition Commission (PCC) approved Grab's acquisition of Uber's operations in August, making it conditional upon rules being met to ensure fairness to consumers given Grab's stranglehold on the local market.

    Large Pacific bluefin tuna not seen in California waters for decades have reappeared, to the delight of fishing enthusiasts and scientists, as global conservation efforts have proven effective for one of the ocean's priciest and most sought-after fish. Gerard DiNardo, director of the Fisheries Resources Division at Southwest Fisheries Science Center, a division of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in La Jolla, California, said there has been an increase in population as well as size of the bluefin because of those efforts.
