These acquisitions are gradually giving Beijing a potential stranglehold on global shipping — with profound military as well as commercial implications. Yet China, having accumulated this unprecedented stake in global shipping and commerce, and its power and profits present ominous possibilities for the future. Five years ago, China, through Cosco, purchased a controlling stake in the Port of Piraeus on Greece’s largest harbor — Europe’s seventh largest. In September, Cosco also took a major stake in the container operator at the port in Hamburg, Germany’s largest. The consequences of doing nothing as China continues to penetrate the world’s ports and shipping are potentially catastrophic.

BEIJING — Satellite images show China has built mock-ups of a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier and destroyer in its northwestern desert, possibly as practice for a future naval clash as tensions rise between the nations. China has upgraded its military massively in recent years, and its capability and intentions are increasingly concerning to the United States as tensions rise over the South China Sea, Taiwan and military supremacy in the Indo-Pacific. Naval Institute said on its website that the mock-ups of U.S. ships were part of a new target range developed by the People's Liberation Army. China's People's Liberation Army's "evolving capabilities and concepts continue to strengthen (China’s) ability to ‘fight and win wars’ against a ‘strong enemy’ — a likely euphemism for the United States,” the report said. China's navy and coast guard are also boosting their numbers of vessels at a record pace, concentrating them in the South China Sea, the strategic waterway that China claims virtually in its entirety.

China has massively upgraded its military in recent years, and its capability and intentions are increasingly concerning to the United States as tensions rise over the South China Sea, Taiwan and military supremacy in the Indo-Pacific. The images captured by Colorado-based satellite imagery company Maxar Technologies dated Sunday show the outlines of a U.S. aircraft carrier and at least one destroyer sitting on a railway track. Naval Institute said on its website that the mock-ups of U.S. ships were part of a new target range developed by the People's Liberation Army. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said at a daily briefing Monday that he had no information about the images, saying, "I'm not aware of the situation you mentioned."

Naval hospital ship Comfort, NY State Governor Andrew Cuomo is seen during a press conference at the field hospital site at the Javits Center. A New York sheriff said Friday that "we have an overwhelming amount of evidence" against former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a day after a criminal complaint accused him of a sex crime against an aide. The complaint accuses Cuomo of forcible touching of a female executive assistant last December in the governor's mansion. But Apple repeatedly said that the unexpected release of the complaint by the court after would not affect the strength of the case against Cuomo.

Biden’s Partisan Punch at West Point
  + stars: | 2021-09-10 | by ( The Editorial Board | )   time to read: 1 min
The White House this week told Trump appointees to resign or be fired from boards overseeing military service academies, and that is President Biden’s right. But the Biden Administration denies that the military has been compromised by politics even as the President now indulges in acts of petty partisanship in military education. The Biden Administration asked for resignations from more than a dozen members of the boards of visitors at the U.S. Naval Academy, Air Force Academy and West Point. Members are chosen by the President, Vice President, the Speaker of the House or congressional committees.

Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., after an investigation concluded they cheated on a remote physics exam in December 2020, according to school officials. Vice Adm. Sean Buck, the academy’s superintendent, requested an investigation after learning that many midshipmen may have used outside sources during the test. Some of the allegations came to light in an anonymous chat platform students used to discuss the exam after taking it, according to the academy. Of the 18 midshipmen who exited the academy, some chose to submit resignations while others were expelled, according to the academy. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md., who chairs the Naval Academy’s board of visitors, voiced his support towards the investigation and its findings in a statement Friday.

Naval Academy said it has expelled 18 midshipmen after an investigation found they had cheated on an online-based physics final exam. The Naval Academy became aware of possible cheating through discussions on an anonymous chat platform, the academy said Friday. An investigation reviewed thousands of pages of information and technological data, including browsing history, and used experts including from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. The academy said the cheating primarily happened when midshipmen visited websites individually and not through any coordinated effort. In all, 105 midshipmen were identified as likely to have accessed unauthorized resources, it said.

But experts warn that the $100 billion shipping industry — especially the heavily computerized ports that receive cargo ships, as well as the actual crafts — are ripe targets for ransomware attacks. And the U.S. shipping industry is already backed up, as the coronavirus pandemic has caused a backlog with Americans ordering more goods to their home than ever before. That makes shipping particularly susceptible to cyberattack, said Rear Admiral John Mauger, the Coast Guard’s assistant commandant for prevention policy. In recent decades, shipping ports have become significantly more reliant on robotic operations and digitized inventory rather than human labor. For most ransomware hackers, their criminal enterprise is akin to a business.

CHICAGO — Doug Emhoff said in his first one-on-one interview as second gentleman that Vice President Kamala Harris has likely been treated differently because she is a woman of color and defended Harris from Republican criticism on her role addressing the root causes of migration. Emhoff shrugged off suggestions that Harris' decision to go to the border now was motivated in part by the former president. "I'm only in this role because the country elected the first woman vice president and that happens to be my wife, Kamala Harris. "Kamala Harris has had a long history with the Jewish community, not just because she married me. As for whether he and Harris have discussed a second presidential run, Emhoff said they are "not talking about that."

In National Review, Charles Cooke recently wrote a takedown of her under the headline: “The Democrats Have a Kamala Harris Problem.” The New York Post editorial board panned her commencement address at the U.S. Those attacks coincide with the upsizing of the tasks that Biden has assigned her. “It’s going to take a hell of a lot of work,” Biden said when he made the announcement about her newest responsibility in Tulsa, Okla., on Tuesday. And yet she asked for the voting-rights lead, according to an article in The Times on Thursday by Katie Rogers and Nicholas Fandos. He noted that her critics “see her vice presidency so far as a collection of unconnected set pieces.

Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband are moving into their official residence after protracted repairs forced the couple to live in the president's guest quarters, a senior administration official said Tuesday. Naval Observatory in Northwest Washington is traditionally the home of the vice president, but Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, have not lived there since the inauguration. Harris and Emhoff have been staying at Blair House, near the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, while the Naval Observatory undergoes renovations. An official said the repairs are "more easily conducted with the home unoccupied." The White House said the renovations include chimney work, maintenance and general floor repairs.
