At Dakota pipeline protest, activists celebrate, mindful fight isn't over

Activist Hugh Ahnatock of the Inupiaq tribe pauses after singing while the sun rises inside of the Oceti Sakowin camp as demonstrations continue against plans to pass the Dakota Access pipelineBy Ernest Scheyder and Terray Sylvester CANNON BALL, N.D. (Reuters) - Thousands of protesters in North Dakota celebrated after the federal government ruled against a controversial pipeline project but were mindful the fight is not over, as the company building the line said it had no plans for re-routing the pipe. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said on Sunday it rejected an application to allow the Dakota Access Pipeline to tunnel under Lake Oahe, a reservoir formed by a dam on the Missouri River. The decision came after months of protests from Native Americans and activists, who argued that the 1,172-mile (1,885-km) Dakota Access Pipeline would damage sacred lands and could contaminate the tribe's water source.

Passport lapse costs Kumar lucrative Hong Kong spot

Indian golfer Mukesh Kumar will miss the Hong Kong Open, from December 8, 2016, as his passport has expiredVeteran Mukesh Kumar has blown the chance to tee up alongside Masters champion Danny Willett, Olympic gold medallist Justin Rose and US Ryder Cup star Patrick Reed -- because his passport has expired. India's 51-year-old Kumar secured his maiden Asian Tour victory at the weekend's $400,000 Panasonic Open India by one stroke and became the circuit's oldest winner in the process. It was the biggest win of his 32-year professional career and gave him entry to the star-studded $2 million Hong Kong Open, co-sanctioned by the European Tour, which begins on Thursday -- but he can't travel.

Dow sets record high as bank rally continues

Traders work on the floor of the NYSE in New York CityThe Dow has been enjoying a record-setting rally, largely led by bank and industrial stocks, which are expected to benefit the most from higher spending on infrastructure and simpler regulations under a Donald Trump administration. Goldman Sachs rose 1.5 percent to $226.50 and provided the biggest boost to the Dow, after HSBC initiated coverage on the investment bank with a "buy" rating and a $250 price target. Investors also appeared to largely shrug off the resignation of Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi following a defeat in a referendum for constitutional reforms on Sunday.

Trump advisors aim to privatize oil-rich Indian reservations

A man from the Lakota Sioux tribe with a Native American tattoo on his neck poses for a photograph during a protest against plans to pass the Dakota Access pipeline near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, near Cannon Ball, North DakotaNative American reservations cover just 2 percent of the United States, but they may contain about a fifth of the nation’s oil and gas, along with vast coal reserves. Now, a group of advisors to President-elect Donald Trump on Native American issues wants to free those resources from what they call a suffocating federal bureaucracy that holds title to 56 million acres of tribal lands, two chairmen of the coalition told Reuters in exclusive interviews. The group proposes to put those lands into private ownership - a politically explosive idea that could upend more than century of policy designed to preserve Indian tribes on U.S.-owned reservations, which are governed by tribal leaders as sovereign nations.

Trump win creates 'considerable' uncertainty, Fed's Dudley says

William Dudley, President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, speaks at Brooklyn College in the Brooklyn borough of New YorkThe U.S. election of Donald Trump has created "considerable" uncertainty over the policies he will pursue so it is too soon for the Federal Reserve to judge whether its plan for gradual interest rate hikes needs adjusting, one of the most influential Fed policymakers said on Monday. In a speech that stepped well into fiscal policy, including a nod to rising debt levels and a prescription for more predictable actions from Washington, New York Fed President William Dudley painted a fairly benign picture of the current U.S. economy. "Assuming the economy stays on this trajectory, I would favor making monetary policy somewhat less accommodative over time by gradually pushing up the level of short-term interest rates," said Dudley, a permanent voter on monetary policy and a close ally of Fed Chair Janet Yellen.
