By Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - The dollar was steady on Friday after its strongest weekly run since March and world stocks were near all-time highs as markets waited for steers from the Federal Reserve and ECB on diverging policy plans. European shares opened barely changed and heading for their biggest weekly gain since February, while Asian markets hitched a ride on another record close for Wall Street to end the week near a six-and-half-year high. Emerging market stocks were also stronger but investors were beginning to move to the sidelines ahead of speeches by Fed Chair Janet Yellen and ECB President Mario Draghi at the annual gathering of central bankers in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
By Reiji Murai TOKYO (Reuters) - Suppliers to Apple Inc are scrambling to get enough screens ready for the new iPhone 6 smartphone as the need to redesign a key component disrupted panel production ahead of next month's expected launch, supply chain sources said. It's unclear whether the hiccup could delay the launch or limit the number of phones initially available to consumers, the sources said, as Apple readies larger-screen iPhones for the year-end shopping season amid market share loss to cheaper rivals. Cupertino, California-based Apple has scheduled a media event for Sept. 9, and many expect it to unveil the new iPhone 6 with both 4.7 inch (11.94 cm) and 5.5 inch (13.97 cm) screens - bigger than the 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5s and 5c. Two supply chain sources said display panel production suffered a setback after the backlight that helps illuminate the screen had to be revised, putting screen assembly on hold for part of June and July.
FRANKFURT/BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's economy ministry will approve the sale of utility RWE's oil and gas unit DEA to a Russian investor despite tensions between Russia and the West over the Ukraine crisis, two people familiar with the matter said. The economy ministry said in June it was investigating whether to block the 5.1 billion euro ($6.9 billion) sale of the DEA unit to the Letter One group of investors led by Russian tycoon Mikhail Fridman, which was announced in March. Representatives of the ministry, RWE and the Letter One consortium declined to comment. Europe and the United States have imposed economic sanctions against Russia for its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region and its backing of pro-Russian separatists, who are fighting against government forces in eastern Ukraine.

Mutated polio virus resists vaccine protection
Washington, Aug 22 (ANI): A new study has revealed that mutated polio virus which resists the vaccine's protection could pose a serious threat. Scientists of the University of Bonn, together with colleagues from Gabon have reported that the polio epidemic in the Congo in 2010 caused by the mutated polio virus was especially serious. The pathogen could also potentially have infected many people in Germany. Dr. Jan Felix Drexler said that they isolated polio-viruses from the deceased and examined the viruses more closely and found that pathogen carried a mutation that changes its form at a decisive point, resulting in the antibodies induced by the vaccination could now hardly block the mutated virus and render it harmless.

Double vaccine can effectively boost immunity in polio patients
Washington, Aug 22 (ANI: A new study has revealed that giving combined polio vaccines can effectively boost immunity in patients. According to the study, giving the Salk inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV) to individuals who had already been given the Sabin live-attenuated oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV) may improve their immunity to the poliovirus, which could help resolve controversy over vaccine choice. Study's senior author Dr. Bruce Aylward, assistant director-general for Polio, Emergencies and Country Collaboration at the World Health Organization (WHO), said that the study revolutionized the understanding of IPV and how to use it in the global eradication effort to ensure children receive the best and quickest protection possible from this disease. Researchers said that IPV should be used to accelerate the eradication of the virus in populations that have limited access to vaccination and the study has also provided the evidence for use of IPV among travelers to limit further international spread of the virus.
