Indonesia has recaptured a US citizen accused of drugs offences who escaped a notorious Bali prison last week.
The man named as both Chrishan and Christian Beasley was caught on the neighbouring island of Lombok.
The 32-year old had escaped by climbing over a prison wall with a fellow inmate who was recaptured immediately.
Indonesia has very strict anti-drugs laws and frequently arrests foreigners on drug-related charges.
The maximum sentence for drug trafficking is death.
"He got arrested on Friday in one of the homestays in Senggigi beach, Lombok," the head of Kerobokan prison, Tonny Nainggolan told the BBC on Monday.
"Right now, he (is) still under detention by the police for further investigation.
" Before his prison break, he had been awaiting sentencing for allegedly receiving a package containing 5g (0.
18oz) of hashish.
It was not clear how much jail time he was likely to get.
In June, another jailbreak at Kerobokan saw four inmates escaping through a tunnel they had dug under a wall.
The notoriously overcrowded prison is also where some of the so-called Bali Nine are held, a group of Australians convicted of drug-smuggling.
Despite protest from Australian authorities, two of the group were executed in 2015, while the others are being held in prisons across Indonesia.
The essence of the monetary policy is to avoid such a calamity by firmly anchoring inflation expectations and supporting economic activity along the path of potential (and noninflationary) growth set by the stock and quality of labor and physical capital.
But that, I fear, is not what we could be seeing in the months ahead.
America`s noninflationary growth potential, currently upgraded to an estimate of 1.
8 percent, is exceeded by the actual economic growth of 2.
2 percent in the first nine months of this year.
Survey evidence also shows a broad-based acceleration of economic activity in manufacturing and service sectors that is historically related with GDP growth in the range of 3.
President Donald Trump was probably referring to these correlations while he was touting his tax reform last Saturday as "one of the great Christmas gifts to middle-income people.
" Remarkably, the latest evidence on wages and consumer prices is not reflecting the increasing capacity pressures in labor and product markets.
Modest gains in labor compensation are more than offset by a reviving productivity, resulting in a negative growth of unit labor costs and rising corporate profits.
Similarly, the core rate of consumer price inflation has come down to 1.
7 percent, after a long period of hovering around 2 percent.
Contrasting with this deceptively benign inflation picture are accelerating price pressures at producer levels.
Last month, producer prices marked an annual increase of 3.
1 percent, nearly triple the reading observed in November 2016.
That`s what is in the pipelines, with more of the rising price pressures coming on stream from tax cuts that could begin to boost purchasing power of households early next year.
The Fed, of course, knows all that.
The question is how the nation`s monetary authorities are responding to what`s coming down the pike in the months ahead.
The change of guard at the Fed should not be delaying that response, because monetary policy operates with notoriously long time-lags of at least several quarters.
Meanwhile, markets are not fooled by 0.
25 percent rate hikes.
They correctly don`t see that as a problem to a strengthening economy.
Traders, helped by the Fed, are ignoring the regular doomsayers by holding the yield on the benchmark ten-year Treasury note roughly stable at about 2.
35 percent and pushing the Dow to new heights.
Wall Street sees that the Fed is a friend that keeps expanding, rather than contracting, the money supply.
At the end of last month, the Fed`s monetary base – called M0 and the right-hand side of the Fed`s balance sheet -- was 10.
6 percent above its level at the beginning of this year.
Over that period, the Fed has added $376.
1 billion of high-powered money to the U.
economy, boosting the banking sector`s loanable funds by $266.
2 billion to an astounding total of $2.
Juan Orlando Hernández has been declared the winner of last month`s fiercely disputed presidential election in Honduras after a partial recount.
Earlier results triggered deadly street violence and protests.
Mr Hernández`s main opposition Salvador Nasralla accuses electoral authorities of vote-rigging.
The Organisation of American States (OAS) had urged authorities not to announce a final result and said "serious questions" persisted.
But the country`s electoral tribunal announced in a televised address on Sunday that the incumbent President Hernández won by 1.
53% of the vote.
Authorities had initially said Mr Nasralla had a five-point lead on the morning after the election on 25 November.
That gap began to close after a computer problem was reported at the vote-tallying centre in the capital, Tegucigalpa.
The OAS requested a partial recount from nearly 5,000 ballot boxes after a number of alleged irregularities in the vote.
European Union electoral observers said on Sunday the recount showed no irregularities.
President Hernández, 49, has been in power since 2013, and is the first president to run for a second term after the country`s supreme court lifted a ban on re-election.
Mr Nasralla is a former TV presenter and sports journalist, who lost the 2013 vote.
He has campaigned to battle corruption and heads up a coalition of parties from the left and right in the Opposition Alliance Against the Dictatorship.
The result was announced as he left for the United States to meet officials at the State Department to highlight his complaints about the vote.
Following the announcement, he said it was clear there had been fraud "before, during and after" the contested vote.
Former President Manuel Zelaya, who backed Mr Nasralla in the election, called for renewed protests after the result announcement.
Thousands of people have taken to the streets in rival demonstrations in the weeks since the election.
Human rights group Amnesty International says 14 people died in days of clashes, but police dispute the number and say only three have died.
The government imposed a curfew, which was lifted after a week, as violence was controlled.
President Donald Trump has denied he is planning to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Tensions have been rising between the White House and Mr Mueller`s probe.
On Saturday a lawyer for Mr Trump`s presidential transition group said thousands of emails had been unlawfully obtained by Mr Mueller`s team.
Responding to questions over the legal row, Mr Trump said it was "not looking good" and his people were "very upset".
"I can`t imagine there`s anything on them, frankly, because, as we said, there`s no collusion," he said, while returning from a weekend trip to Camp David.
His administration has denied working with Russia in the 2016 election and Mr Trump has labelled the investigation "a witch hunt".
Responding to a media question on the White House lawn on whether he was considering firing Mr Mueller amid his criticism, Mr Trump responded "No, I`m not.
" Several Democratic lawmakers had expressed concern, and on Friday the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, Adam Schiff, said he feared Republican members wanted to shut the probe down.
Several former members of Mr Trump`s campaign team are facing charges as part of the investigation.
What is the issue with the emails? A lawyer working for the Trump for America (TFA) group, who helped Donald Trump`s transition to the White House after his election, complained on Saturday after the group became aware Mr Mueller`s investigation had obtained tens of thousands of their emails.
Kory Langhofer sent a letter to US congressional committees claiming the records had been obtained "unlawfully".
The TFA group had used the facilities, including email hosting, of a government agency, the General Services Administration (GSA), in the period between Donald Trump`s election in November 2016 and inauguration in January.
In his letter, Mr Langhofer, says GSA staff "unlawfully produced TFA`s private materials, including privileged communications" to Mr Mueller`s investigation team.
The emails obtained reportedly involve 13 Trump transition officials, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn who pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI earlier this month.
The GSA, he complains, "did not own or control the records in question" and maintains the constitutional rights of transition officials were violated.
What`s the reaction been? A spokesperson for Mr Mueller said they had done nothing wrong.
"When we have obtained emails in the course of our ongoing criminal investigation, we have secured either the account owner`s consent or appropriate criminal process," Peter Carr said.
GSA Deputy Counsel Lenny Loewentritt has denied another of Mr Langhofer`s accusations, that the GSA assured that requests for Trump transition records would go through the group`s lawyers.
He told BuzzFeed that the transition group knew materials would have to be provided to law enforcement "therefore, no expectation of privacy can be assumed".
Democratic Representative Eric Swalwell tweeted that the accusations were "another attempt to discredit Mueller as his #TrumpRussia probe tightens".
What has the Mueller inquiry established so far? US intelligence agencies believe Moscow tried to tip the presidential election in favour of Mr Trump - a charge denied by both Russia and the US president.
Mr Trump has labelled Mr Mueller`s investigation a "witch hunt" while other Republicans accuse it of bias.
Earlier this month, Mr Flynn became the most senior Trump official to be charged as part of the inquiry after admitting making false statements to the FBI about meetings with Russia`s ambassador.
He has confirmed he is now co-operating with the investigation.
Another ex-aide, George Papadopoulos, has also pleaded guilty to making false statements to FBI agents.
In October, Mr Trump`s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and his business associate Rick Gates were accused of conspiring to defraud the US in dealings with Ukraine.
Both deny the charges, which centre on relations with a former Ukrainian president who was very close to Russia.
President Trump`s private lawyers are expected to meet Mr Mueller and members of his team next week to discuss the next phases of the inquiry, US media report.
 Prime Minister Theresa May will set out her plan for how a proposed Brexit transition period will work, stoking a potential new row with the European Union as she tries to keep different factions inside the Conservative Party on her side.
May will address Parliament around 3.
London time on Monday, saying that after March 2019 she wants Britain to leave the EU’s single market and customs union while retaining most of the benefits of membership.
 While the EU has said this will mean abiding by its rules, the prime minister will propose a diverging course in at least two areas.
“During this period we intend to register new arrivals from the EU as preparation for our future immigration system,” May will say, according to her office.
“And we will prepare for our future independent trade policy by negotiating -- and where possible signing -- trade deals with third countries, which could come into force after the conclusion of the implementation period.
” Difficult Meetings Both of those are likely to be points of disagreement in the upcoming negotiations with the EU.
But at least that difficulty won’t come until talks resume in 2018.
Before then, May faces a difficult series of meetings at home.
On Monday, the Cabinet’s Brexit subcommittee is due to discuss for the first time the desired goal for the negotiations; then the whole Cabinet will ponder the same question on Tuesday.
May has so far managed to keep her party and her Cabinet united by not addressing the question of where she’s like the Brexit talks to end up.
The Cabinet is split between those such as Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond and Home Secretary Amber Rudd, who argue that Britain needs to stay close to the EU -- its major trading partner -- and others, including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Environment Secretary Michael Gove, who say that the country’s best hope lies in setting its own regulations, even if that means tougher trading restrictions.
No ‘Vassal State’ Johnson fired a fresh salvo over the weekend, using an interview with the Sunday Times to call for a “liberal Brexit.
” He said the advantages of leaving the EU haven’t been properly outlined to the public.
He said the U.
must strike a trade deal that gives it the power to discard EU laws, and that failure to do so would render Britain a “vassal state” of Brussels.
That’s the same phrase that Tory lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg used on Friday to attack the EU’s proposals for the transition period.
It may be a concession to those who oppose the form of transition that May’s proposing.
But May doesn’t only have to deal with Conservatives who want to get as far away from the EU as possible.
Last week, she suffered her first defeat in Parliament after pro-European Tories rebelled over the level of scrutiny Parliament will get of the final Brexit deal.
On Friday, she seemed to have found a way to avert another defeat with a compromise over whether the date of Brexit can be changed.
  The Guardian reported on Sunday that some of these rebels have urged May to form an alliance with Labour Party lawmakers to vote down those in her party who want a so-called “hard Brexit.
” Ignition Point A new possible ignition point for the row within the Conservative Party is a proposal -- reported in Sunday newspapers to have been made by Gove -- to abolish the limits on the hours people can be required to work that were brought in as part of Britain’s EU membership.
That would break a promise the Tories made at this year’s election.
Labour’s Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said it revealed the real goal of those who want maximum distance from the EU.
“No one supports ‘divergence’ to raise standards; only to deregulate,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Showing their true colors.
” Even if the Cabinet can agree on the kind of Brexit it wants, it still has to persuade the EU to agree.
 Michel Barnier, the chief European negotiator on Brexit, in an interview with Prospect magazine conducted in the days before last week’s summit, repeated that the EU won’t agree to a more favorable deal with the U.
than it has with any other countries.
“They have to realize there won’t be any cherry-picking,” he said.
“We won’t mix up the various scenarios to create a specific one and accommodate their wishes -- mixing, for instance, the advantages of the Norwegian model, member of the single market, with the simple requirements of the Canadian one.
They have to face the consequences of their own decision.
Ilse Valfre was just 22 years old when she started a blog that would take her from a being nursery teacher to the owner of successful fashion, accessories and art business.
Today fans of her Valfre brand include actresses Jessica Alba, Emma Roberts and Bella Thorn, but she`s had to fight to protect her designs and overcome many logistical hurdles.
"I loved kids, but it wasn`t my calling," says Mexican-born Ilse, who quit her teaching job in San Diego, California, in 2010 to blog full-time about her artwork.
"I didn`t want to go back to school and study fashion, but I wanted to do something related to it.
"Drawing was always a hobby, so I decided to post my illustrations and build a business around my art.
" For some that might sound like a risky plan, and indeed Ilse had to move back into her parents` home in the Mexican city of Tijuana, just across the US-Mexico border from San Diego, to save money.
But her drawings - of edgy, cartoon-like female characters, influenced by her love of comic books and Japanese anime - soon attracted attention.
"I would draw these women wearing fashions that I couldn`t afford and share them on by blog," she explains.
"I blogged twice a day, every day, and began gathering like five followers after every post.
A year later, I had a pretty decent following.
" It all fell into place when Ilse discovered that her designs were being copied and used on clothes sold on the internet in China.
"That`s when I knew there was a market for my work, and it motivated me to create my own product.
" She produced her own line of tote bags and t-shirts, which led her to launch the Valfre brand in 2013.
Today, the now Los Angeles-based firm sells a wide range of women`s clothing and accessories inspired by her artwork, plus prints and greeting cards.
The firm has grown quickly, posting sales of $2m (£1.
5m) in 2016, and is now sold in 28 countries via stores such as Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom.
Ilse, now 30, believes social media played a huge part in the growth of the brand, and credits much of its success to photo sharing site Instagram.
"Instagram was really new when I started," she says.
"When I decided to launch my brand, I only had about 25,000 followers, but they were very engaged in what I was doing.
I would put up my prints and they were selling out in less than an hour.
" Today, the company counts nearly 700,000 followers on the social media platform.
Fashion and retail analyst Charcy Evers says: "It used to be designers had to get their wares in front of magazine editors, with the hopes of them promoting them and becoming the next `it` brand.
"Today, social media plays that role, especially Instagram with fashion.
But the key is to stand out from the crowd and rise above the noise with a specific point of view and message.
And to be consistent.
Valfre did all of these things and it paid off.
" Despite the brand`s success, Ilse faced hurdles as she tried to get the business off the ground.
In 2011 she started selling her apparel on Big Cartel, an online marketplace for fashion in the US.
But because Mexico`s mail service was so unreliable, she had to physically ship her products from her parents home in Tijuana to San Diego.
She remembers: "I would walk across the border - I didn`t have a car at the time - twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
"The lines were insane sometimes, and often it would take me three hours to cross.
" It was later that year, while attending the Coachella music festival in California, that Ilse`s life changed forever, both personally and professionally.
More stories from the BBC`s Business Brain series looking at interesting business topics from around the world: She met her now husband Donald Eley, a start-up entrepreneur who recognised the potential of Valfre as a brand.
He has since become the company`s chief executive.
"He really believed in my artwork and helped me put together a business plan and find people who might be interested in investing," Ilse says.
For a while the couple had to store all of the firm`s inventory in their two-bedroom apartment, even after their first child was born.
"The place was filled with boxes," says Ilse.
"My husband and I were doing customer service, fulfilment, everything, and it was just getting out of control.
"But we didn`t have enough money to move to an office or hire anyone.
" That changed in 2014, when sales picked up, and Valfre was able to hire its first member of staff and rent an office in LA.
Ilse credits the runaway success of a 3D silicone phone case released by the firm for helping Valfre to break into Asia.
The case was called "100% boys tears" and designed in the shape of a milk carton, replete with a drinking straw.
"It went viral," she says.
"There were so many girls, especially in Korea and Japan, interacting with the case, and taking selfies pretending to drink out of the straw.
It opened up the market in Asia for us.
" As the company continues to grow quickly, the biggest challenge it still faces is people copying Ilse`s designs.
In May 2017, Valfre began legal action against two high street fashion retailers, Rue 21 and Forever 21, alleging copyright infringement.
Rue 21 has settled with Valfre, while the battle with Forever 21 - which denies liability - is headed for the courts.
Ilse says copying is a common problem in the fashion industry.
"We live in a transparent world with access to information all around us so it`s fair game, especially in fashion.
Trademarking and copyrighting designs can be difficult, if not impossible.
" She adds: "The key is to keep to your vision and be the original, because it`s so easy to spot the knock-offs.
" Ilse now wants to expand beyond fashion and art.
She would like to produce a TV show based upon her characters and perhaps open a theme park at some point in the future.
"I want to offer more to our customers and fan base by bringing these characters to life," says the ambitious entrepreneur.
And few would be surprised if she got her way.
The New York neighbourhood of East Harlem, or El Barrio, has long been the home of many of the city`s Latino population.
Journalist Ed Morales describes it as the place "where hip-hop and salsa trumps classical, prime real estate gives way to inner city".
Joseph Rodriguez`s photographs from the 1980s capture the vibrancy of the area`s communities, while providing glimpses into the darker undercurrents of social issues such as drug addiction, poverty and homelessness.
These images were born out of a collaborative university project in which Rodriguez and his fellow students attempted to protect the tenants of buildings in the neighbourhood that were threatened with gentrification.
Under their tutor, the writer and curator Fred Ritchin, the students made black-and-white photographs for court cases showing how landlords had let residential buildings deteriorate so that they could be renovated and then rented to wealthier outsiders.
After the project ended, Rodriguez stayed with the communities, shooting their lives in colour, capturing their richness.
"There is an enormous amount of love in these photographs.
And a sense that things can get better," Ritchin says about his students` images.
Rodriguez captures the everyday life of the neighbourhood.
Groups of young men sit on a stoop listening to a boombox or children play in a paddling pool.
Another boy emerges from Jefferson Pool, where many families from El Barrio visited in the summer.
"This was a very hard, very poor, very tough block at the time," he remembers about this photograph, "but what`s important to me is the sense of dignity that these boys have by putting on a suit.
"The boy on the left can`t even afford a tie but he still wears a suit.
This is where I started to understand what the word `respect` means to people.
" Spanish Harlem: El Barrio in the `80s by Joseph Rodriguez is published by powerHouse Books.
