U.S. President-elect Donald Trump holds a golf club during a media event on the sand dunes of the Menie estate, the site for Trump's then-proposed golf resortBy Conor Humphries DUBLIN (Reuters) - A golf course owned by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has agreed to scale back a wall designed to protect its greens from coastal erosion after opposition from local residents, the local council said on Tuesday. A plan submitted by Trump's company in May to build a 2.8 km (1.7 miles) armourstone wall up to 20 meters wide and 5 meters above the water line between the sea and the dunes sparked a campaign by environmental groups and locals to protect the beach. In its place, the golf club management are now proposing two less visible barriers, of 650 meters and 250 meters in length, above the water line at either end of the beach, two people who attended a public consultation on Monday said.

Rigging equipment is pictured in a field outside of Sweetwater TexasBy Scott DiSavino NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices on Tuesday fell for the first session since OPEC agreed to cut output last week after data showed crude production rose in most major export regions and on growing skepticism that the cartel would be able to reduce production. After rising over 15 percent over the four sessions since the Nov. 30 OPEC meeting, Brent futures were down $1.25, or 2.3 percent, to $53.69 a barrel at 10:13 a.m. EST (1513 GMT). The Brent front-month has outperformed the U.S. contract since the OPEC meeting, with its premium over WTI reaching $2.29 a barrel earlier on Tuesday, its highest since August.

A unanimous Supreme Court on Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2016, sided with smartphone maker Samsung in its high-profile patent dispute with Apple over design of the iPhone.
