New York opens subway line dreamed up in 1920s
By David Ingram NEW YORK (Reuters) – While more than a million people ring in the new year with their eyes on a glittering ball high above Times Square, a select group of construction workers and city officials will toast 2017 underground on the inaugural ride of a subway line a century in the making. Only about a quarter of the line, envisioned to run 8.5 miles (13.7 km) from Harlem to near Wall Street, is opening over the weekend. It is two miles (3.2 km) long, with three stations on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

India's PM Modi defends cash ban, announces incentives

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrives to launch a digital payment app linked with a nationwide biometric database during the "DigiDhan" fair, in New DelhiBy Rupam Jain and Malini Menon NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a series of incentives to the poor, farmers, women and small businesses on Saturday in a New Year’s address, and defended his recent decision to abolish high denomination bank notes. The televised speech was widely seen as an opportunity for Modi to shore up support after a radical move on Nov. 8 to withdraw all 500 and 1,000 rupee bills, accounting for 86 percent of currency in circulation. Millions of Indians were forced to queue outside banks for hours to deposit old money and withdraw as much new currency as was permitted, causing widespread anger and raising concerns about India’s economic growth in the current quarter.

Attacks by militants, who want a greater share of the country’s energy wealth to go the impoverished oil-producing swampland, have been less frequent since November when Buhari held talks with community leaders from the region.
