WASHINGTON — The U.S.-led military mission in Afghanistan planned to hold a flag-lowering ceremony on Friday in Kabul with NATO allies but the event was cancelled at the last moment amid questions over what the ceremony was meant to signify, according to three U.S. Defense officials. The flag-lowering ceremony at the Kabul headquarters for NATO’s “Resolute Support” mission, which trains and advises Afghan security forces, was called off only hours before it was due to begin, the Defense officials said. The ceremony likely would be held at another date, two Defense officials said, and would only include officers and officials already working at the headquarters due to concerns over Covid-19. U.S. troops already have handed over several bases and airfields to Afghan security forces and C-17 cargo planes are continuously flying out equipment. The Defense Department “continues to pursue, analyze and refine the best options available and will announce corresponding decisions and implementation plans as they become available and appropriate,” Lodewick said.

Barton & Gray and Freedom Boat Club are two of the big clubs. Its 40,000 members have access to about 3,200 boats, all under 24 feet long. Freedom Boat Club has added nearly 10,000 members since the pandemic began, said Brenna Preisser, president of the business acceleration division at Brunswick. (In the summer, the boats are up North, but they go to Florida and the Carolinas for the winter.) Most members pay $54,000, which gives them access to all the boats but limits them to booking four charters at a time.

In 2008, e-commerce sales accounted for just 3.6% of total retail sales in the United States, according to data from eMarketer. E-commerce sales are predicted to account for 15.3% of total retail sales by the end of this year and jump to 23.5% by 2025, eMarketer said. Walmart and Target are holding competing deals events — as they have in past years — to coincide with Amazon Prime Day 2021. Both discounters will start sales on Sunday, but Walmart's offers extend through Wednesday, while Target and Amazon end on Tuesday. Both Walmart and Target hope to reach customers who are already browsing the web on Prime Day for summer discounts.

After getting the visa, Zhang left BlackRock last year for business school.

The golf industry is seeing a surge in demand during the pandemic, with PGA Tour Superstore reporting a 55% increase in overall year-to-date sales compared with 2019. Demand is so high that suppliers are struggling to keep up, Dick Sullivan, CEO of PGA Tour Superstore, said on CNBC's "The Exchange" on Friday. "We are hearing that factories are purchasing additional factories overseas to keep up with this incredible demand," Sullivan said. PGA Tour Superstore is also facing the same supply-chain challenges as others in the retail industry, with congested ports, container shortages and Covid-19 outbreaks slowing shipments. "But I was in California this week working with suppliers to see how we can accelerate the lead times to make sure we satisfy this demand."

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, listens during a U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing in Washington, U.S., March 18, 2021. Tshibaka, the former state administration commissioner, launched her campaign in March with a vow to defeat Murkowski in the 2022 election and has already enlisted the help of former Trump advisers. "I am honored and grateful to have the support of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump," Tshibaka tweeted. Murkowski voted to convict Trump of inciting the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot, in which his supporters attacked Congress in an effort to stop certification of the 2020 election. The Alaska Republican Party later censured Murkowski and pledged to recruit a challenger to oppose her.

Jake Sullivan, President Biden’s national security adviser, told reporters Thursday that both sides had made a “clear commitment” on the security of Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul. “We are feeling good about where we are in terms of the planning with the Turks on this issue,” Mr. Sullivan said. The issue of airport security is critical to the American diplomatic presence in Afghanistan. A Taliban takeover of the airport could make it impossible for American and allied personnel to safely evacuate the country. Taliban leaders already have expressed opposition to any foreign personnel, including from Turkey, remaining in the country to provide airport security.

2 job at Blackstone, singled out real estate investment trusts (REITs). He singled out real estate investment trusts (REITs) as a solid bet: "You can invest in a good basket of public REITs," he said. When making any kind of real estate investment, he said, you need to ask yourself: "Is this a good piece of real estate, where supply is limited, demand is favorable?" At Blackstone, Gray has helped spearhead the division of the company that buys single-family homes to rent out to tenants. "Our investment in rental housing is based on the fact that we just haven't built a lot of housing since 2008-09.

WASHINGTON – The Biden administration was unable to work out a resolution with Turkey following Ankara's defiant purchase of a Russian weapons system, which the NATO alliance views as a security risk. National security advisor Jake Sullivan told reporters Thursday on a call that President Joe Biden and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the 2017 multibillion-dollar weapons deal with Russia this week at NATO's headquarters. In December, the Trump administration slapped sanctions on Turkey, a NATO member, for buying the S-400 missile system in a confrontation not typically seen within the alliance. There was not a resolution of the issue. There was a commitment to continue the dialogue on the S-400," Sullivan said, adding that the Biden administration would have more to say on the matter after Washington and Ankara hold additional talks.

Live Covid Live Updates: As U.S. Death Toll Nears 600,000, the Counting Is Complicated Many experts say the official total is probably an undercount. Credit... Justin Sullivan/Getty Images The United States is poised to reach a once-unthinkable number of 600,000 Covid-19 deaths. “Using the older definition of Covid-19 deaths, a resident who had Covid-19 but died due to another cause, like a car accident,” would still have been counted. As the pace of infection and death slows, public health agencies continue to revisit their death totals. Although it is one of three such drugs authorized in the United States, it is the only one currently in use nationwide.

Those warnings focus on a potential invasion attempt by China, which has increased its military activity in the area. But Taiwan and the US face a threat short of an invasion: a Chinese blockade that could cut Taipei off from the world. Chinese forces have conducted a number of live-fire drills that appear directed at Taiwan, and Chinese military flights across the median line in the Taiwan Strait and into Taipei's air-defense identification zone have hit record levels. Much of the focus has been on military preparations for deterring or fighting off a Chinese invasion. While essential, that focus misses an important threat short of a full-scale invasion: a blockade.

Jon Gray still remembers what it was like when he was hired as an entry-level analyst at a seven-year-old private-equity shop in New York City in 1992. Fresh out of the University of Pennsylvania, Gray was interviewed by the Blackstone cofounders Stephen Schwarzman and Pete Peterson themselves. Recruiters first delayed the kickoff of the ultra-competitive process in the fall of 2020 in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Now the traditional on-cycle associate recruiting process likely won't start until late summer or early fall 2021, Insider previously reported. In October of 2020, we spoke with Gray, headhunters who recruit for the firm, and Blackstone's global head of human resources to learn what it takes to stand out.

Google agreed to pay $267 million to settle a French antitrust case alleging it abused its online ad market dominance. Lawyer Damien Geradin, who filed the French complaint, explained why the case would have a global impact. The investigation also found that Google's AdX offered superior interoperability features to Google Ad Manager than it did to rival ad marketplaces. This is the first time that a competition authority [has found] that Google abused its dominant position in the adtech market, which of course is a core market for Google. It would have been surprising if Google would suddenly modify in a material way the way it goes about the adtech sector.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said he and President Joe Biden agreed Wednesday that their respective ambassadors will return to their foreign posts, marking a resumption of diplomatic relations between the two adversaries that had been suspended since April. Currently, neither Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Anatoly Antonov, nor Washington's ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan is stationed at his post. As a result, consular operations, visas and other diplomatic services in both countries effectively ground to a halt. The summit began with a 90 minute meeting featuring only Biden, Putin and their top foreign policy aides, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Officials had previously agreed that Putin would give the first press conference following the talks, and Biden would speak afterward.

More than three-fourths of the West is in severe drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. High temperatures in areas dependent on air-conditioning could result in grid failures and endanger people unable to escape the heat. Grid operators in Texas and California have called on residents to limit electricity use in order to avoid blackouts this week. In Texas, high temperatures have already caused a slew mechanical issues at power plants — just four months after a deadly winter storm knocked out power for millions of people.

GENEVA — President Joe Biden will arrive Wednesday in Switzerland for his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in a decade in a period of stark deterioration in relations between their two countries. "Since his 2014 aggression against Ukraine, in particular, Putin has seen Russia as increasingly at war with the West." Sullivan said Biden will lay out his expectations for Russia's behavior and the consequences if Putin doesn't meet them. There could also be an announcement that the two countries are taking steps to normalize diplomatic relations, including allowing the U.S. ambassador to return to Moscow and the Russian ambassador to be sent back to Washington. "I don't think the trajectory of the relationship is going to be fundamentally changed, but at least there will be a few areas for follow-up dialogue."
