Washington, Oct 18 (UITV/IANS) - US President Donald Trump on Wednesday expressed support for a bipartisan initiative to restore the ObamaCare subsidies he suspended last week.

"We have been involved and this is a short-term deal because we think ultimately block grants going to the states is going to be the answer," Trump told reporters at the White House, Efe news reported.

Senators Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D-Wa.) announced on Tuesday an accord "in principle" to re-instate for two years the cost-sharing reduction payments, known as CSRs, that Trump halted last week.

An Indian-origin boy becomes one of UK’s youngest millionaires

London, Oct 17 (UITV/IANS): An Indian-origin teenager has made a fortune by selling houses through his online estate agency business during his school lunch breaks and has become one of UK's youngest millionaires, a media report said.

While other youngsters were kicking a ball around the playground, Akshay Ruparelia, 19, was quietly negotiating huge property deals on his mobile, the Daily Mirror reported.

He hired a call centre service to answer his company switchboard while he was in class and rang clients back after the school bell rang.

Within months, investors were buying shares in Ruparelia's firm "www.doorsteps.co.uk". In little more than a year, the company has been valued at 12 million pounds and the teenager has sold 100 million pounds worth of homes.

Ruparelia's school friends nicknamed him "Alan Sugar" after Baron Sugar, the business tycoon and "Apprentice" star.
