'Change can't wait': progressive Democrats seek to make their mark

Sunday 21:49 GMT

One thing is certain, says House Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) chair Mark Pocan: “This isn’t your mother and father’s progressive caucus.”

With their brief absence from the biennial conference, a staid affair hosted by the Harvard Kennedy School, the progressive warriors of the House’s new majority sent a clear message. “I was not sent to Washington to play nice,” Massachusetts congresswoman-elect Ayanna Pressley told the crowd outside.

Silicon Valley Helped Build Huawei. Washington Could Dismantle It.

Sunday 21:49 GMT

Silicon Valley giants from Intel Corp. INTC -4.40% to Broadcom Inc. and Qualcomm Inc. QCOM -1.96% are top suppliers of Huawei, which buys their components to make equipment such as base stations and routers and Huawei mobile phones.

By one estimate, Huawei will buy up to $10 billion of components from American companies this year—roughly the value of China’s automobile imports from the U.S.. Qualcomm and Intel are also working with Huawei on its development of next-generation 5G technologies, a field in which the Chinese company’s aim to be a global leader has alarmed some in Washington.

Businesses can’t afford to be stingy – or they risk losing good employees

Sunday 21:49 GMT

Unfortunately, I have too many clients – particularly small businesses – who resist the law of supply and demand and instead wind up losing good employees to competitors and larger organizations because they’re too stingy or not willing to change.

Sacrificing a few dollars in profits or risking the wrath of some customers with a price increase may be worth losing the one asset that your company depends on for growth and survival: your people.

The USA women will defend the World Cup in France. Here's who they'll face

Sunday 20:55 GMT

If the Americans are to defend their title at the Women’s World Cup next year in France, they now know their initial steps.

The other teams in Group F may be a little less familiar than the other foes the USA must face, but Sweden more than makes up for it. The Americans not only have faced Sweden 38 times in the teams’ history, but Sweden was the team that knocked the US out of the 2016 Olympics quarter-final for the worst finish in US women’s national history at a major tournament.

As One Arms Treaty Falls Apart, Others Look Shakier

Saturday 17:16 GMT

The impending collapse of a Cold War-era treaty banning U.S. and Russian intermediate-range missiles is spurring broader concerns about the very future of arms control.

A central question in the dispute is whether anything can be done to patch up the 1987 accord and, if not, whether a separate treaty limiting long-range nuclear arms, which will lapse in early 2021 unless extended, will be the next domino to fall.

Sunday 19:05 GMT

The deputy Labour leader, Tom Watson, has demanded that Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg never again allows far-right activists to fundraise on the network, criticising him for having a “contempt for social responsibility”. A Guardian investigation on Friday found that a hidden global network of US thinktanks, rightwing Australians and Russian trolls were providing financial, political and moral support to Tommy Robinson, who has more than 1 million followers on Facebook – his main social network after Twitter suspended him for claiming “Islam promotes killing people” in March.

I was a CIA spy in Russia – and now my family is in danger. But Trump can help

Sunday 13:34 GMT

I believe that relations at the diplomatic level between the US and Russia need to be adjusted and that Trump’s position on this is actually correct.

In Russia there are people who, like me, at a huge risk of our own lives, helped the US government and intelligence services and ended up in prison.

Sunday 06:03 GMT

Al From, founder of the Democratic Leadership Council and the man who masterminded that result by handpicking Clinton to lead the revival of the party as the New Democrats, said: “The important point, which should not be lost in 2020, is that we ran against George HW Bush but we also ran to reform and change our party.

Democrats will be aware that this year they had history on their side: the party that holds the White House tends to sustain losses in the midterm elections.

In the Hurricane's Eye review: Nathaniel Philbrick's revolutionary triumph

Sunday 06:03 GMT

Nathaniel Philbrick, perhaps most familiar to readers for In the Heart of the Sea, has now completed a popular-history trilogy on the American Revolution that began with Bunker Hill and continued with Valiant Ambition, a study of the middle period focusing on the treason (to American eyes) of Benedict Arnold.

In his third book, Philbrick restores the sea to “the center of the story” and shows that George Washington understood better than most that control of the water would mean victory.
