Turkey has no peacekeepers there but has signed an agreement with Russia to set up a joint centre to monitor the ceasefire. The Minsk Group includes France, Russia and the United States. Erdogan said “discomfort” voiced over the agreement by some co-chairs of the Minsk Group “has no worth whatsoever.”

Facebook’s “conversion lift” tool overestimated some campaign results for 12 months, the company quietly told its advertisers this month. The glitch skewed data that advertisers use to decide how much money to spend with the company. It isn’t the first problem Facebook has discovered in its systems to measure advertisers’ campaigns, and it is not likely to dent Facebook’s ad revenue. Omnicom Group Inc. media agency OMD Worldwide is looking into how the error has affected some clients’ investments before accepting credits, said Florian Adamski, OMD’s global chief executive. “More so than past measurement problems with Facebook’s ad platform, this error has the potential to be extremely serious,” the agency wrote in the note to clients.

WASHINGTON—President-elect Joe Biden’s choices to lead his administration on foreign policy and intelligence both hail from a Washington advisory firm that touts its high-level connections, creating a potential stumbling block for both as they seek Senate confirmation. The three-year-old firm, WestExec Advisors, was co-founded by Antony Blinken, whom Mr. Biden this week tapped to serve as his Secretary of State. Mr. Biden chose another former WestExec employee, Avril Haines, as his national intelligence director. She left...

In some polls, Mr. Biden was leading President Trump by as much as 23 points among likely female voters. Most of the help that female voters provided to Mr. Biden came from women of color, and especially from Black women. A majority of white women voted for Mr. Trump, by an 11-point margin. True, they didn’t vote for him by as large a margin as did white men, and if college-educated, they tipped toward Mr. Biden. Mr. Trump has tried to eliminate the Affordable Care Act, made court appointments that threaten Roe v. Wade, and reduced access to contraception.

The resulting agreement was signed by Representative Zoe Lofgren of California, the chairwoman of the Administration Committee, in January and paid out this summer. It resolved claims brought by Mr. Awan and the other four staffers under the Federal Tort Claims Act that House officials behaved negligently in their second inquiry after the Justice Department found no evidence of illegal conduct. Mr. Awan declined to comment on the settlement. Mr. Awan was born in Pakistan in 1980 and moved to Northern Virginia in 1997.

Mr. Trump did the same thing with a group of Michigan lawmakers — he pressured them to not certify Michigan’s 2020 election vote, which went for Mr. Biden — but it failed to work.

Biden Transition Moves Quickly After Trump Agrees to Share Resources

WASHINGTON—President-elect Joe Biden is moving quickly to take advantage of government resources for his transition to the White House after the Trump administration ended a 16-day stalemate and announced its intention to begin cooperating with his team. Transition officials began reaching out to agency officials on Monday night, immediately after the Trump administration said it would begin working with the president-elect’s team, a transition official said. The transition team had been preparing for the Trump administration to change course and end its two-week-plus policy of blocking government resources to Mr. Biden. Mr. Biden’s tech team migrated the president-elect’s transition website over to government servers shortly after the administration’s announcement Monday night. General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy said Monday that her agency would formally provide federal resources for Mr. Biden to begin a transfer of power.

David Dinkins, New York City’s First Black Mayor, Dies at 93

David N. Dinkins, the first Black mayor of New York City who worked to unite a divided city as it battled a high crime rate, died Monday at his home in Manhattan at 93 years old, according to the city’s police department. Mr. Dinkins, a Democrat, was elected mayor in 1989 at the end of a municipal scandal that plagued then-Mayor Ed Koch’s third term. He defeated Mr. Koch in a mayoral primary and went on to beat the Republican candidate, then-U.S. Attorney Rudolph Giuliani. When he took office, Mr. Dinkins vowed to be the mayor for every resident and promised a new era in city politics. But Mr. Dinkins’s message of unity and the programs he launched—including a popular after-school program for students and an advisory board to field police complaints—were overshadowed by a high crime rate, a fiscal crisis and race-related riots.

The mayor himself was paradoxical: punctilious and demanding of subordinates, yet reluctant to make decisions until he absolutely had to. The mayor found himself under pressure to respond, but said he was waiting for Commissioner Brown’s report on overhauling his department. Finally, in October, a shaken Mr. Dinkins offered a barrage of anti-crime proposals, including a record expansion of the police and a plan to return officers to neighborhood beats. A Black crowd defended her, and the confrontation widened into a boycott that went on for months, with protests, rallies and threats. But the mayor, who had gone on television to appeal for racial tolerance, fared badly, so reluctant to offend either side that he had alienated both.

“The example Mayor David Dinkins set for all of us shines brighter than the most powerful lighthouse imaginable,” said Ms. James, who shattered racial and gender barriers when she was elected to her current post in 2018. “For decades, Mayor Dinkins led with compassion and an unparalleled commitment to our communities,” Ms. James added. Ms. James nodded to that idea: “The voice that gave birth to the ‘gorgeous mosaic’ is now at rest,” she wrote. Mr. Dinkins, a barber’s son, became New York City’s first Black mayor in 1990. Mr. Giuliani beat him by sweeping the white ethnic neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island that were his political base.

The Untitled Latinx Project is one of the groups trying to change that.

In addition to developing new shows with writers of color, she is also grooming executives of color who she hopes will one day land decision-making spots at the studios.

The letter sent by the General Services Administration (GSA) to President-elect Joe Biden authorizing his transition does not say that he won the election.
