Will Microsoft’s Activision Blizzard deal finally get done?

From the BBC World Service: Microsoft has filed changes to its proposed takeover video game maker, Activision Blizzard, in an attempt to win over the U.K. competition regulator, which previously blocked the $69 billion deal. The BRICS group of developing economies — Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa — are meeting in Johannesburg for their annual summit. Expanding membership and de-dollarization are both high on the agenda. Jakarta is the world's most polluted city; the air quality is so bad, that from today, thousands of civil servants will work from home for the next two months.
