Make use of Carbon kit

So first add the elements to your view. this is the way how you add using Carbon Kit

override func viewDidLoad() {

    self.title = "CarbonKit"
    items = [UIImage(named: "home")!, UIImage(named: "hourglass")!, UIImage(named: "premium_badge")!, "Categories", "Top Free", "Top New Free", "Top Paid", "Top New Paid"]
    carbonTabSwipeNavigation = CarbonTabSwipeNavigation(items: items as [AnyObject], delegate: self)


You want to refresh your news so using delegate method of Carbon Kit which is CarbonTabSwipeNavigationDelegate you can refresh your tableview.

 func carbonTabSwipeNavigation(carbonTabSwipeNavigation: CarbonTabSwipeNavigation, viewControllerAtIndex index: UInt) -> UIViewController {

        switch index {
        case 0:
            //Do your table view refresh here Business category 
        case 1:
           //Do your table view  refresh here other category 

            //Do your table view  refresh here all category  which will be default
