U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin participates in a news briefing at the Pentagon May 6, 2021 in Arlington, Virginia. WASHINGTON – Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Wednesday directed the Pentagon to place China and its military build-up at the center of American defense policy. The classified Pentagon-wide directive comes on the heels of recommendations from a 23-member task force aimed at assessing the U.S. military's China strategy. Through the directive unveiled Wednesday, the Pentagon will assess U.S. alliances and partnerships, deterrence, operational concepts, emerging capabilities, future force posture, technology and civilian and military workforce. When pressed for more details, the official added that the initiatives created by the directive will largely remain classified.

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin looks on during a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, U.S., June 7, 2021. REUTERS/Evelyn HocksteinU.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin issued an internal directive calling for several initiatives to counter China, U.S officials said on Wednesday, but few specifics were provided on how they would be different from efforts already underway. The United States has put countering China at the heart of its national security policy for several years now, with both countries at loggerheads over issues from technology and human rights to Chinese military activities in the disputed South China Sea. The directive is the result of recommendations made by a Pentagon task force that was set up in February by President Joe Biden. But the budget has come under criticism from lawmakers and experts as not focusing enough on the near-term risks from China.

REUTERS/Yuri Gripas/File PhotoChina should implement its commitments to equal treatment for foreign business and abandon "implicit" guidance to replace foreign products with domestic alternatives, the American Chamber of Commerce in China said on Tuesday. When ties worsen, U.S. firms see poorer implementation of regulations promising equal treatment for foreign business, affecting investment project approvals and market access, said Greg Gilligan, chairman of AmCham China. Legislation promising equal treatment for foreign and domestic companies is only unevenly implemented, said the paper, which also called for emerging sectors like cloud computing to be opened up to foreign companies. U.S.-China tensions were seen as a challenge to doing business in China for 78% of companies polled by AmCham, according to a survey released in March. China also pledged to toughen intellectual property protections, and improve agriculture biotechnology and financial services access for U.S. firms.

NEW YORK/LONDON (Reuters) - Inc issued its first sustainability bond on Monday, raising $1 billion to invest in renewable energy, clean transport, greener buildings and affordable housing. Global green bond issuance reached a record high of $270 billion at the end of 2020 and could reach $450 billion this year, according to Climate Bonds Initiative.

The company said it forms part of a new Sustainable Bond Framework and will be spent on new and existing projects. The framework also cited sustainable building projects, like using an all-electric heating and cooling system run on renewable energy in the company’s new Arlington, Virginia, headquarters.

Sexual assault prosecutions should be taken out U.S. military chain of command- panel
  + stars: | 2021-04-23 | by ( ) sentiment -0.99   time to read: +1 min
REUTERS/Carlos BarriaA commission on sexual assault set up by the Pentagon has recommended that the United States military take the decision to prosecute cases of sexual assault out of the military's chain of command, a U.S. official said on Thursday. If the initial recommendations made by the independent commission are accepted by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, it would be a major change in the military. Advocates and lawmakers have for years been calling for the military commanders to be taken out of the decision making process when it comes to prosecuting sexual assault cases, arguing that they are inclined to overlook the issue. In March, the head of the commission, Lynn Rosenthal, said that all options were on the table when dealing with sexual assault in the military. Sexual assault and harassment in the U.S. military is largely under-reported and came under renewed scrutiny recently.

Liu Jie/Xinhua via GettyMore than 300,000 Americans lost unemployment benefits prematurely during the Covid pandemic, according to a study published Tuesday by the California Policy Lab. State unemployment systems have an automatic mechanism that pays additional aid to the long-term unemployed during periods of mass joblessness. These Extended Benefits programs can pay up to 20 extra weeks of aid, on top of the typical six months of regular state benefits. As a result, many states' insured unemployment rates have fallen below the 5% threshold, ending Extended Benefits in those areas. However, terminating extended aid in this manner is counterintuitive during high periods of long-term unemployment, the report authors claimed.

Germany, Britain, the Netherlands, Canada and France all recently joined the United States in sending warships through the disputed South China Sea, or announced plans to do so.

Twelve alleged Oath Keepers are defendants in a high-profile conspiracy case tied to the attack. Members of the Oath Keepers, a far-right paramilitary group involved in the January 6 Capitol insurrection, likely stored a cache of weapons in a suburban hotel outside of Washington, DC, in the lead-up to the riot, federal prosecutors say.

REUTERS/Erin ScottWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper says the United States should deploy more troops along the Black Sea in Bulgaria and Romania to deter potential aggression from Russia as tensions between Moscow and Washington heat up. Russia seized Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and fighting has increased in recent weeks in eastern Ukraine, where government forces have battled Russian-backed separatists in a seven-year conflict that Kyiv says has killed 14,000 people. When he was running the Pentagon last year, Esper advocated a similar shift as former President Donald Trump announced his intention to cut the U.S. troop contingent in Germany by about a third, saying Berlin had been taking advantage of the United States while not meeting financial obligations to NATO. The United States announced on Tuesday that it will ramp up its forces in Germany amid the latest tensions with Russia over Ukraine, abandoning Trump’s plan to withdraw around 12,000 of the 36,000 U.S. troops there.

Economists consider workers to be long-term unemployed after at least six months without work. Finding a new job becomes more difficult, workers' long-term earnings potential is scarred and the odds of losing a job if they find one down the road increase. You have unemployment coming down, and long-term unemployment going up. In recessions, unemployment and long-term unemployment generally move up and down together, Shierholz said.
