Shimon Peres, a former Israeli president and prime minister, whose life story mirrored that of the Jewish state and who was celebrated around the world as a Nobel prize-winning visionary who pushed his country toward peace, has died, the Israeli news website YNet reported early Wednesday.
In an unprecedented seven-decade political career, Peres filled nearly every position in Israeli public life and was credited with leading the country through some of its most defining moments, from creating its nuclear arsenal in the 1950s, to disentangling its troops from Lebanon and rescuing its economy from triple-digit inflation in the 1980s, to guiding a skeptical nation into peace talks with the Palestinians in the 1990s.
Peres was celebrated by doves and vilified by hawks for advocating far-reaching Israeli compromises for peace even before he negotiated the first interim accord with the Palestinians in 1993 that set into motion a partition plan that gave them limited self-rule.
 after a fateful six-month period in 1995-96 that included Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin's assassination, a spate of Palestinian suicide bombings and Peres' own election loss to the more conservative Benjamin Netanyahu, the prospects for peace began to evaporate.
Shunted aside during the 1999 election campaign, won by party colleague Ehud Barak, Peres rejected advice to retire, assuming the newly created and loosely defined Cabinet post of Minister for Regional Cooperation.
Rush hour generally hits its peak at about 7 a.m. Pedestrians hustle along the sidewalks or peddle along on the city's bike lanes, usually narrow strips of sidewalk painted green that started to appear about a year ago, while workers and students who can't walk or bike to where they need to go load onto the subways and fill the city's buses and electric streetcars.
By about 6:30, long lines of men in neckties or olive-colored work clothes and university students in their uniforms — white shirts or blouses, and dark trousers or skirts accentuated by red ties or scarves — can be seen waiting for their cross-town rides, which are usually standing-room-only.
With North Korea now on one of its "loyalty drives" stints, when the citizens are called on to show special devotion to leader Kim Jong Un and often put in extra hours to boost productivity, Women's League units are out in force in front of subway entrances and other strategic locations to dance and wave red flags as loud patriotic music blares from boom boxes.
Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a leading contender for Mexico’s presidency in 2018 who casts himself as an honest figure fighting a corrupt political mafia, failed to disclose two apartments he owns in his declaration of assets released in August.
