Nike boycott: Parks and recreation department banned from using brand over Kaepernick advertA US city has banned its parks and recreation department from purchasing Nike equipment after the sportswear giant launched a new ad campaign featuring controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Local government staff in Kenner, Louisiana, were told of new rules last week, introduced in an apparent response to the brand’s use of the former NFL star in commercials. In a memo sent to the Kenner’s parks and recreation director, mayor Ben Zahn demanded none of the city’s $ 125,000 (£97,000) leisure supplies budget be spent on Nike products.

Pakistan ex-PM banned in one seat as election bias claims persist

Pakistan ex-PM banned in one seat as election bias claims persistBy Asif Shahzad ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – A Pakistani election tribunal disqualified outgoing Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Wednesday from running in his home constituency, dealing the latest blow to the party of ousted leader Nawaz Sharif. The ruling follows the arrest by an anti-corruption body of another member of Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) after he was named to contest a seat. In the case of Abbasi, an election commission tribunal ruled that he did not declare an accurate value of his assets in his nomination papers.

Russia lawmakers draft list of U.S. imports that could be banned

Russia lawmakers draft list of U.S. imports that could be bannedBy Darya Korsunskaya and Christian Lowe MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s lower house of parliament is to consider draft legislation that would give the Kremlin powers to ban or restrict a list of U.S. imports, reacting to new U.S. sanctions on a group of Russian tycoons and officials. Senior lawmakers in the State Duma, which is dominated by Kremlin loyalists, said they had prepared the list ranging from food and alcohol to medicine and consulting services in response to Washington’s move last week. It was not immediately clear if the draft legislation – which would allow the government to impose the measures should the need arise – would become law in its current form, or if it had the backing of the Kremlin.
