The harvest of grapes has just started in France's Chablis, famous for its delicate white wines.But it's been a difficult year for the vineyards.Wine production is expected to be historically low this year after frost and mildew fungus ravaged vines.In the Yonne region where Chablis is produced, two thirds of the harvest was destroyed.Producers like Laurent Pinson found a remedy though. He burned large 'candles' - actually cans of paraffin - to protect the vines from sharp spring frosts:"The plots which we protected during the spring frost are quite nice looking so it's promising for the harvest and the quality of the wine."But many of Pinson's fields weren't so lucky.And lower overall production will force him to lift prices:"We can accept a loss of ten or twenty percent in our harvest, we can absorb it over one or two years with a little price increase. But if we have a big loss, like two thirds as we expect, we will have to dramatically increase our prices. But will our customers accept that ? That is the question."Temperatures in April plunged as low as -5°C, or 23°F, in wine regions including Chablis.Chablis produces its fruity white wine from Chardonnay grapes. Over 70% of the output is exported with key markets in Asia, northern Europe and the U.S.But drinkers may find that the wine is about to get a whole lot more expensive.
Three young men have been arrested after police in Orlando, Florida, were shot at on Tuesday, September 21.Footage from the incident was released by the Orlando Police Department on September 22.Police said the shootout occurred after two officers “happened to pull through an intersection where three armed males were on bicycles.”Police said “preliminary information” indicated the three “opened fire on the vehicle, and officers had to return fire from inside the vehicle.”Police said the officers were in an unmarked car, but wearing clothes with “police” written on them. Police Chief Orlando Rolon told WESH it was thus unclear if the suspects were aware they were firing at police officers.The three suspects, named as Jameon Brown, 22, Travis Weston, 17, and Michael Collins, 19, were arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer and aggravated assault with a firearm, WESH reported.Chief Rolon said he was “very thankful that no one suffered life-threatening injuries in this dangerous encounter.”“The rigorous training our officers receive for this kind of situation potentially saved their lives,” he added.

The world's carmakers could lose $210 billion in revenue this year due to supply chain disruptions. That's according to an estimate by industry consultants Alixpartners on Thursday (September 23). And it's almost double the estimate made back in May. The global shortage of computer chips is one problem, but far from the whole story.Automakers have warned that silicon supplies aren't improving as they'd expected. Resurgent health worries have hobbled output at key chip producers in Malaysia. But supplies are also tight for other components, such as steel and plastic resin. Backlogs at major U.S. ports are hampering efforts to bring in more supplies there. And prices for parts have risen across the supply chain. All told, Alixpartners estimates carmakers will lose output of 7.7 million vehicles this year as a result of the problems. Thursday sees a new plea for help. Reuters sources say General Motors, Ford and BMW will be among carmakers attending a virtual White House summit on the semiconductor shortage. Chipmakers including Intel and TSMC will also attend. They've both pledged to ramp up output, but new chip plants could take years to come on stream. U.S. legislation to help fund new semiconductor factories is awaiting congressional approval.
As uncertainty looms over cash-strapped China Evergrande Group, seizing up China's junk bond market, pressure is building on its peers to access fresh funding to repay notes worth nearly $300 billion due over the next two years. Once its top-selling developer, Evergrande now looms as one of China's largest-ever restructurings as a crackdown on debt ends a freewheeling era of building with borrowed money which became infamous for ghost cities and roads to nowhere. The nervousness has resulted in a handful of Chinese real estate developers having their ratings downgraded by agencies as concern swirls about their debt and repayment abilities, which, in turn, will weigh on their borrowing costs.
China sent 19 fighter jets toward Taiwan in a large display of force Thursday, after the self-governing island announced its intention to join an 11-nation Pacific trade group that China has also applied to join. Taiwan deployed air patrol forces in response to the Chinese jets and tracked them on their air defense systems, the island's Defense Ministry said in a statement. China has sent fighter jets toward Taiwan on an almost daily basis this past year.
