France fries: Record heat hits tourists, schools, hospitals

Thousands of schools were closed, outdoor events canceled and volunteers were visiting the elderly at home as France and other nations battle a record-setting heat wave baking much of Europe.
Several people have died around the continent in incidents that authorities are linking to the weather. A major wildfire raged Friday in Spain, sparked when a pile of chicken dung spontaneously combusted in the heat.

Top Tourist Attractions: Singapore

Singapore is a superlative city, with elaborate temples, extraordinary gardens, and world-class architecture (check out the candy-colored houses on Koon Seng Road). The beauty here is both natural and man-made, with travelers seeking out the city's tropical jungle in the Botanic Garden and the wild, technicolor Gardens by the Bay. As an added bonus, you can reach everything via some of the cleanest streets and subways we've ever seen.

Air India plane escorted by fighters to land in London after bomb threat

An Air India passenger plane flying to the United States was escorted by British fighter jets to land in London on Thursday after a bomb threat.
Air India said flight AI 191 from Mumbai to Newark had made a precautionary landing at London Stansted Airport "due to bomb threat."
Britain scrambled Typhoon fighters at supersonic speed to intercept the Boeing 777-337 and safely escorted it to Stansted which briefly closed its runway.

Top Tourist Attractions: Vienna Austria

Artistic and exquisite, it's no surprise that Vienna was voted the best city in Europe in this year's Readers' Choice Awards. Between visiting the opera and sampling Sachertorte, be sure to pay a visit to Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the Habsburgs and Vienna's most popular tourist attraction. The palace's Baroque architecture and spectacular gardens are worth bumping elbows with a few fellow tourists.

Happy Birthday Mumbai

It was on this day, that is *on 25th June, 1661, that Charles II of England married Catherine of Braganza, the Princess of Portugal and got the 7 islands of 'Mombaym' as dowry.* He then leased 'Bombaim' to the East India Company for an annual rent of 10 pounds. The rest, of course, is history.

Kremlin confirms Trump-Putin meeting at G-20

Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with U.S. President Donald Trump on the sidelines of an international summit in Japan, the Kremlin said Wednesday, in talks that come amid bitter differences between Moscow and Washington.
Trump has said he plans to meet with Putin during the Group of 20 summit in Osaka, and Putin has said he welcomes dialogue and is ready to sit down for talks. Wednesday's statement by Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, marked the official Kremlin confirmation of the two presidents' meeting on Friday.

Top Tourist Attractions: Tallinn Estonia

Tallinn practically overflows with storybook charm, thanks to colorful buildings, turreted castles, and a lovely location on the Baltic Sea. The city has one of the best-preserved historical centers in Europe, with many of its medieval churches and merchant houses falling under UNESCO protection. The views of the city center from Toompea Castle are beautiful no matter the season—in fact, they make those cold, Baltic winters downright bearable.

Economist who called last bubble says we're already in recession

Stock markets are looking like hard work for the day ahead, thanks largely to escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran. 

Investors, who are awaiting this week’s G-20 get together between President Donald Trump and China’s leader, are now juggling a tense war of words between Tehran and D.C. Just words, we hope.
We could use a bit of good news right about now. Enter our call of the day, from economist Gary Shilling, known for predicting bubbles like the housing debacle of 2008. Shilling talks about another worry for investors -- a big bad recession -- in an interview with digital financial media group Real Vision. 

Top Tourist Attractions: Vancouver Canada

It's easy to see why so many travelers are devotedVancouver loyalists. Once described as "the little village on the edge of the rainforest," the now-cosmopolitan city (Canada's third largest) is surrounded by incredible natural beauty—snow-capped mountains on one side, and the Pacific Ocean on the other. You don't even have to travel far to get your dose of nature: Downtown Stanley Park has more than 1,000 acres of waterfront and woodlands.

Top Tourist Attractions: St Petersburg Russia

St. Petersburg may have been immortalized by Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy, but the city is well worth exploring beyond the pages of a book. Palace Square provides front-row viewing of both the Building of the General Staff and Winter Palace, the latter of which may be Russia's finest example of Baroque architecture. Also worth a visit is the five-domed Church of the Saviour on the Spilled Blood, as well as the city's many spectacular Orthodox churches.
