The U.S. Congress faces a pair of approaching deadlines to fund the government and address the nation's $28.4 trillion debt ceiling that will require tricky maneuvering by President Joe Biden's Democrats over the next few weeks. First up is the Sept. 30 deadline to continue funding federal agencies or face the second partial government shutdown in three years, which would be an embarrassment coming at a time when Washington continues to struggle with the coronavirus pandemic and bolstering the economy. In late October or early November, the U.S. Treasury will run out of money to pay its obligations, meaning the government faces the risk of a historic default if Congress does not act.

It was still somewhat dark when the first voters came to cast their votes, some tired of the campaigning and glad to be able to put a cross in the box.Incumbent Chancellor Merkel has been in power since 2005 but plans to step down after the election, making the vote an era-changing event to set the future course of Europe's largest economy.After a domestic-focused election campaign, Berlin's allies in Europe and beyond may have to wait for months before they can see whether the new German government is ready to engage on foreign issues to the extent they would like."I didn't watch it on TV at the end anymore, I was so annoyed by it, because one says one thing, one says another, and they discussed a lot about many things which I hope they stick to later and don't just talk about it before the elections. And I think many things were not discussed that are critical and that will only come now after the election."

The thirst for fuel continues in London, unquenched for a second day in a row.For taxi driver David Turner, empty pumps at gas stations means a weekend of lost business.
