“Someone left for lunch and never came back.”
We will promote the liberalization and facilitation of international trade and investment.
The Nixon moment came during a press conference in Houston, March 1974. The height of Watergate, less than five months before Nixon would resign. He was doing a kind of goodwill tour, getting out in front of people, looking presidential. The press was supposed to be only local friendlies, but Rather, the CBS White House correspondent at the time, was there.
Guangdong has cemented its position as the country's largest provincial economy for the 28th consecutive year, with its gross domestic product (GDP) exceeding 7.9 trillion yuan in 2016.
If you wake up every morning Monday through Friday and never feel excited to go to work, that is a problem. It means you aren't enjoying your job and it is diminishing your quality of life. If you wake up every day and dread going to work, it's time to consider quitting your job.
But none of these doomed NBA squads seem all that interested in setting themselves up for it. Should they be? Do we need more tanking this year, for these teams' own sake?
Back then, Rather was a rising star of the news, twelve years into a national career after being plucked from KHOU in Houston, when he caught the attention of the national network for his coverage of a hurricane in 1961. (It was the largest on record, and Rather cajoled the National Weather Bureau into letting him report from inside its new radar facility in Galveston; during thirty-six hours of continuous coverage, at one point Rather invented the concept of superimposing a map over the radar screen so viewers could see where the storm was tracking—forever changing televised weather reports.)
He had covered the civil-rights movement and three assassinations (Kennedy, King, Kennedy). He was known for earnestness; a deep, trustworthy voice; and the ability to keep his emotions out of his reporting, a talent he has referred to as “detachment.” He was on his way to the anchor chair of the CBS Evening News, which he would hold for twenty-four years, starting in 1981, before being ousted in 2005 over a report challenging President George W. Bush’s military record. The reasons for his departure were controversial, and were the basis for the 2015 movie Truth, in which Robert Redford plays Rather.
Today he runs his own production company, called News and Guts, focused on investigative reporting. He is free to tweet what he wants (“There will be no vaccine for the climate crisis”) and to write essayistic posts about democracy and humanity. He is older than some dirt roads, and free to say whatever the hell he wants.
Tumor Biology, a journal published by Springer Nature, announced last week that it had retracted the papers after an investigation showed the peer review process had been compromised.
In the past decade, only three blue diamonds of 10 carats or more with the same vivid grading for intensity have been sold at auction, all weighing less than 12 carats and none flawless, he said.
Klay Thompson added 19 points and Andrew Bogut scored 13 for the Warriors, off to the best start by an NBA team since Dallas won its first 14 games in 2002-03. Golden State needs three wins to equal the league record of 15-0, held by the 1948-49 Washington Capitols and 1993-94 Houston Rockets.
Usually sober-minded analysts, accustomed to the auto industry’s slow growth, seem to shed their inhibitions when it comes to Tesla. Rod Lache of Deutsche Bank has attached a $310 price target on the stock. Not to be out-done, Adam Jonas of Morgan Stanley established a $320 price target and calls Tesla it the “most important car company in the world”.
“No, no, the answer is no. I haven’t,” he said. “The exchange with President Nixon stood out at the time because it hadn’t been done before. Or at least not in that direct a fashion, not with that much drama surrounding it—the whole background of Nixon leading a widespread criminal conspiracy within his presidency and all. But at the time it was ‘Wooo!’ because it wasn’t being done. And as bad as Nixon was—and you will never hear me say he was anything other than one of the worst presidents in history, if not the worst president in history, before the current president—the difference between Nixon and President Trump is that, first of all, Nixon deep down believed in the institutions of government. No misunderstanding—I’m not complimenting him, but that was the norm. And he would himself criticize individual reporters and journalistic institutions, but most of the time President Nixon would do that behind the scenes, or using surrogates. Now, with President Trump, he criticizes not only individual reporters but basically all of journalism. Every journalist is no good, is evil, is a threat to democracy, is treasonous. Everybody. He does it himself. He does it consistently, relentlessly, and he does it for the purpose of personal gain, which is to say keeping himself in office.”
菲律宾参议院一委员会就国内发生的法外处决事件举行了听证会，罗纳德?德拉罗萨(Ronald Dela Rosa)在会上表示，自7月1日杜特尔特就任总统后，有712人在警方缉毒行动中被杀，还有1067起死亡正被作为与毒品相关的自告奋勇者杀人案件在调查中。

At the appointed time of our first conversation, Rather—Dan Fucking Rather!—appears on the screen, just as he did when I was a kid and he would appear on the TV screen in the basement at six o’clock. Only now he’s on my screen, talking to me, wearing an olive-drab shirt with epaulets, which he could have been wearing in Kuwait or Johannesburg or the Florida panhandle during some 60 Minutes segment during the Reagan administration.
FlightAware, well known among travelers for its flight tracking app, calculated arrival delays for 18 major and regional U.S. airlines over the Thanksgiving and winter holiday (Christmas through New Year’s) travel periods, as defined by the Transportation Department, from 2010 through 2012.

Interestingly, BRICS bloc has reduced their exposure to these securities at a time when America's economic activity is expanding at a moderate rate.
A child's eye view of life in a Florida motel community.
RATHER: When I fault myself—and I’d say fairly often I do fault myself on this subject—it is, well, okay, Dan, you’ve always been a pretty good listener, you have borne witness to things you’ve seen, and yes you have thought about it before. But you haven’t acted as much or as decisively as you could have.
Traffic was halted along Interstate 68 in Frostburg, Maryland on Tuesday. Wet snow and high winds spinning off the edge of superstorm Sandy spread blizzard conditions over parts of West Virginia and neighboring Appalachian states.
That is up from a rise of 11.2 per cent in September.
Stanford’s alumni have the highest salary on average at $195,000 but overall the top 15 MBA programmes are closely matched in terms of income, career progress and satisfaction. All but one have average alumni salaries greater than $150,000, with a pay increase of about 100 per cent compared with their pre-MBA income.
Beijing targets consumer prices inflation at 3.5 per cent, but weakening growth is keeping prices benign.
The book reflects growing anxiety in some quarters about the possible negative impact of automation on jobs, from manufacturing to professional services. The subtitle of its UK edition warns of “the threat of mass unemployment” and, in the US edition, foresees “a jobless future”.
在本届戛纳电影节上，女性电影制作人以及相关女性话题曾广受关注成为宣传主题。28年来，戛纳首次以女导演拍摄的电影拉开序幕，伊莎贝拉?罗西里尼(Isabella Rossellini)成为“一种关注”单元评审团主席，莎尔玛?海雅克(Salma Hayek)主持讨论会高调探讨女性角色在电影中的意义。可以讨论的话题有许多，但是真的有何改变吗？数字似乎更能说明问题，主竞赛单元的19部入围作品仅有2部来自女性导演。而后发生的“高跟鞋门”，更有.....面对外界对于影展涉嫌性别歧视的负面消息，艺术总监蒂埃里?弗雷莫(Thierry Frémaux)一点儿反应都没。他只是说，戛纳电影节的举办有着及其不公平的高标准，参展影片不能申请其他诸如威尼斯或柏林电影节。这难道是建议人们去“攻击奥斯卡”？
"Although it may seem counterintuitive, the best way to maximize profits over the long-term is not to make them the primary goal of the business," Mackey said in an interview earlier this year.
During those years, he wrote in his 1977 memoir The Camera Never Blinks, “I was totally unprepared, emotionally and intellectually, for the evils committed in the name of racial segregation. Who would have believed that a police chief would turn loose vicious dogs on children? Who would think that adults could turn over an elementary school bus and beat its side with ax handles?”
RATHER [continued]: For a long time, it just seemed the movement toward any progress on civil rights was so tiny as to be barely perceptible. It was more like a great amount of snow that moves along so slowly you don’t even know it’s moving.
But then there’s an avalanche.
States are falling all over themselves to be chosen as the site for Tesla’s proposed $5 billion Gigafactoryto produce lithium ion batteries. California is competing with Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, and the bidding for the factory, which could employ up to 6,500 people, is said to be up to $500 million.
Striking a balance may take a while, but working toward this list as a goal for starting your company will make the difference. How an owner feels about progress and how quickly a business can be up and running — and feeding that bottom line — will swiftly feel the impact.
A combination of tax increases and spending cuts in 2013 shaved about 1.5 percentage points off annual economic growth, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Many forecasters expect the fiscal drag in 2014 to be one-third that amount, or less. 'You'll have more political certainty this year,' said Gregory Daco, a U.S. economist at Oxford Economics.
Mr Williams notes that early November data from the likes of Brazil, Vietnam, Taiwan and Chile suggests the picture has continued to improve since October.
When I first came to CBS News—I started in 1962—there was no correspondent of color. After that, it was slow going, but there were efforts made. But there were very few steps, and they were tentative steps. I do remember when the decision was made to bring the late Ed Bradley onto 60 Minutes as a correspondent, I’m not sure the decision would have been made if I hadn’t been moving to the evening news. It was not my decision to make, but in other words, I was opening up a position. I recommended Ed Bradley, and I was not the only one—it was almost a consensus. But he was the first. And I’m not singling out 60 Minutes, but 60 Minutes had been around since, maybe ’68? So between 1968 and 1981 there was not a single black correspondent.
《今日美国》(USA Today)说，对大多数城市来讲，就业复苏即使能实现，也得是在好几年过后。浏览知名分析师梅瑞迪斯?惠特尼(Meredith Whitney)新书《州的命运》(The Fate of States)时你会看到，她提醒说，“过多的养老金会挤出教育支出等自由派目标，也会挤出保守派希望实现的减税目标”。
在被问及欧洲央行会不会采取更多行动时，朗伯德街研究(Lombard Street Research)首席欧洲经济学家达里奥·铂金斯(Dario Perkins)表示：“我不这么认为——除非全球整体经济出了问题。”
RATHER: I think the answer is yes—if you believe, as I have come to believe, that one of the things that identifies journalism is that you don’t stay silent. Something happens [purses lips, almost smiles], you tell it. And social media is another vehicle, another platform, another opportunity, to tell it. And to ask the more important questions of the day.
To what purpose? I know people get tired of hearing this, but [he shrugs] like every other journalist who’s worthy of the name, the purpose is: to gather facts, and analyze the facts, in order to get as close to the truth as is humanly possible. Recognizing that sometimes you can get reeeally close to it [his eyes go wide], and other times, even with your best efforts, you don’t get very close.
法国巴黎高等商学院排名第二，尽管该学院在除MBA以外的所有排名中都胜过伦敦商学院。法国巴黎高等商学院最终不敌伦敦商学院的原因是，其高管MBA课程Trium是与伦敦经济学院(London School of Economics)和纽约斯特恩商学院(Stern School of Business)合办的，因此这门课程在该项排名中的得分只有总得分的三分之一。（合办课程的商学院参与EMBA课程排名时按比例获得分值。）
Female founders in Silicon Valley will raise more money next year, as sexual harassment scandals have forced investors to rethink their habit of backing ventures founded by mainly young, white men. Some start-ups founded by men pursued by rumours of unsavoury pasts will not get funding, even if they are a good investment proposition.
RATHER: Oh, it’s a lot scary. I was raised to fear only God and hurricanes, but I have come to really fear this—it’s a daily, almost hourly fear that you might, in haste, write something down that you didn’t mean or that can be taken more than one way. And you say to yourself, Whoa, I didn’t intend that! That’s so far from what I intended. But too late.
So I really do fear that.
在苹果今年6月举行的全球开发者大会(Worldwide Developer Conference)上，库克被应用开发者团团围住，要求与他自拍合影。到了10月的iPad发布会，他甚至自己讲起了笑话。他还是一贯的着装，简单朴实：黑衬衫，牛仔裤，衬衫下摆散着。他说，Apple Watch得到了“深谙时尚与风格——比我还懂的人”的热烈好评，一边说，一边心照不宣地指着轻声发笑的观众。
RATHER: Yes. I do. It’s a dilemma. I don’t want to make an excuse—I’m responsible for what I do. But increasingly I’ve been asking myself the question, Do I stay on Facebook? And I discuss it with the younger people on my staff—of course they’re all younger now.
A report by human resources website Zhaopin released recently found that only 3.1 percent of students expecting to graduate in July said they will start their own business, down from 6.3 percent in 2015.
Grab your rolling bag, and pack your patience. The holiday air travel season is about to begin. And if you want to have a stress-free trip, the best advice we can give is to fly west.
ESQUIRE: You spent a lot of time with Donald Trump in 1999, the first time he ran for president, for a 60 Minutes segment. What stands out in your mind about the experience?
RATHER: Well, one, Donald Trump invited us into the bedroom one night when Melania was already in bed and he was getting ready for bed. And it was “Come right on in!” He was not embarrassed, and she was not embarrassed. I remember being embarrassed and sort of saying, I don’t think so.

The pair came out with a spree of punch lines, dishing them around the Beverly Hills Hilton, much to the delight of its starry audience. Mr. Damon, Meryl Streep and, naturally, Mr. Clooney were among the targets. Ms. Fey particularly had the crowd roaring with a description of 'Gravity,' which stars Sandra Bullock and Mr. Clooney.
Written instructions apparently issued by China’s tourism administration, shown to the FT by one Beijing travel agent, order agencies to cancel group tours to South Korea booked for after March 15 and add that companies not in compliance could be fined or have their licences revoked. The tourism administration was not immediately available for comment.
"That of course is in keeping with all of the developments that we have seen in China in recent years, including the current enormous emphasis on innovation as a major component in the transition of the Chinese economy from 'Made in China' to 'Created in China'," he said.
In truth, slower growth of about 8 per cent could be better for China and for the world. More environmentally sustainable and equitable outcomes would ease popular concerns and higher consumption would ease tensions over global trade.

“多年以来，我们看到中国增长势如破竹，而美国增长率却在下降，”保险商耆卫(Old Mutual)旗下资产管理公司Old Mutual Global Investors的亚洲股票业务主管乔希?克拉布(Josh Crabb)说，“但是，交易量下降得相当厉害，所以我们并不真的确定当前价格到底如何。看起来，香港市场的基本面展望非常严峻。”
RATHER: Yes. At succeeding banquets for the New York Police Athletic League, of which he and I were both on the board, he was stone-cold freezing.
RATHER: I asked myself this very question yesterday. I went, Wait a minute, these things, all kinds of stories—during the 2016 campaign, then-candidate Trump mimicked the Times reporter who had a physical challenge. Outrageous! Despicable. This is not in the American campaign character and never has been.
The Warriors are one of the best teams in NBA history, and you can put their championship run up against any team in NBA history for the best playoff performance ever. But there's also a legitimate question of what this means for the sport. If the best or second-best player of all time stands no chance against this team, what does it mean for the sport's competitiveness? It hasn't been a problem so far, thanks to an extremely wild offseason, but the question remains: what happens to a competitive sports league when it's not truly competitive at the highest level?
It shifts your kid's weight to your shoulders and core instead of your back.

Beijing targets consumer prices inflation at 3.5 per cent, but weakening growth is keeping prices benign.
Such claims are unlikely to go away, though. John R. Christy, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville who is known for his skepticism about the seriousness of global warming, pointed out in an interview that 2014 had surpassed the other record-warm years by only a few hundredths of a degree, well within the error margin of global temperature measurements. “Since the end of the 20th century, the temperature hasn’t done much,” Dr. Christy said. “It’s on this kind of warmish plateau.”

The .40-calibre Smith & Wesson that killed her, a semi-automatic handgun, was seized by police to undergo ballistics testing to determine if it had been used in other crimes.
The programme focuses on the early careers of the children that are enrolled in the Abby Lee Dance Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
RATHER: I’m on the other side of that argument. I don’t see it as giving them a platform. If it’s a public person, it gets down to the basic question for journalists, Why am I in this? One of the lead reasons I’m in this is that I’d like to get to the truth, or as close to the truth as is humanly possible. So what is the truth of Alex Jones? As Butch Cassidy said to the Sundance Kid, Who are these guys? And in answering that question—Who is he? Who are these people?—then a professional journalist doing his work can shed some light on that. So I don’t have much patience for this argument that, Oh we’re giving him a platform.
And listen: They have a platform. They’re going to create their own narrative. So who is going to check the narrative they’re creating for themselves? That’s one of the roles journalists perform.
ESQUIRE: Does the word courage mean something different today from when you used the word as your sign-off in your final CBS News broadcast in 2005?
RATHER: I like the word—I like the inner rhythm of the word. I like it because it was my father’s favorite word. I like it because I have seen real courage, both of the battlefield variety and of the variety that’s more moral courage.
With journalists, there’s a tendency to say to yourself, Just stay in the middle and move with the herd. That way you don’t get hurt. And today, frankly, there are more ways to get hurt. When I broke into journalism, lo those many years ago at a small weekly newspaper, we had a deadline of sorts every week. A deadline every week! If you worked for the CBS Evening News with Douglas Edwards or Walter Cronkite, your deadline was 5:00, 5:30 in the afternoon. And when that deadline passed, that was pretty much it.
And you know the danger of that: You don’t get as much time to double-check. Sometimes you don’t have any time to double-check.
There’s that fear: Just do it the easy way, the safe way. Same with asking questions, where the higher you go up on the scale of powerful people, the heavier the undertow is. For heaven’s sakes, don’t put yourself in a position where somebody can hang a sign around you that labels you “unpatriotic” or “anti-Republican” or “anti-Democrat.” Just go through the questions on your list, and whatever the interview subject says, go to the next question. Even if he throws some clear, unadulterated bullshit at you, when you know you want to follow up with a question and call it for what it is, instead it’s quick [snaps]. It’s: Don’t get yourself in trouble. Just move on to the next thing.
I’ve done it, I’d be very surprised if you haven’t done it. [Shrugs.] Almost every journalist has done it, and the reason is fear.
It requires courage to overcome those natural tendencies. And listen, I want to emphasize, I’m not saying this because I have courage. I want to have courage. I ache to have courage. I regret those times when I had the opportunity to have the guts to stand up and have courage and didn’t do it.
ESQUIRE: Another word you used recently was steady, in a Facebook post. You wrote, “This moment’s problems are particularly severe, but they are not insurmountable.” But this was before George Floyd. You’ve seen so much, and made a living making sense of it. How are things looking now?
RATHER: Well, this is one of the low points in American history. We have this extremely difficult virus which we have failed to meet and to deal with in a responsible way, and which has contributed to—one can even say led to—an economic collapse the likes of which we’ve not seen since the early days of the Depression. We have a political crisis in the country, made up of the dysfunction of the Trump administration. Plus a broad-based movement in the streets for change, which has as its base anti-racism as a result of the Floyd situation in Minnesota.
"Hong Kong is a small island with 7 million people ... and you have 1.5 billion across the border (in mainland China) who would like to invest," Mark Elliott, associate director of International Residential Property Services at Jones Lang LaSalle, tells CNN. "The government is releasing more and more land, but it doesn't work."
This is different from anything we’ve seen in this country. There have been other periods, but not a period with all of these various factors, and compressed in the short time frame between now and the election. We’re asking ourselves, who are we as Americans?
Who are we anymore?
I’m an optimist by nature and experience. But it’s not an empty-headed optimism, it’s not “Oh, well, things are gonna be all right!” Things’ll be all right if we get ahold of ourselves and realize where we are. That there’s not been a time in my lifetime—with one possible exception—when I’ve felt that a lot of the world, if not most of the world, felt that we Americans had been humiliated. The one exception is when the last helicopters took off from the roof in Saigon. But now we have the double humiliation of being the most scientifically advanced country in the world, particularly in the field of medicine, and we’re in worse shape than anybody in the world in battling the coronavirus.
In 2016, China's box-office experienced a shock correction, with growth plummeting to just 3.7 percent from a roaring 48 percent rate in 2015.
You could make the argument, and I’m here to make the argument, that the country’s been damaged tremendously these last few years. Not all of it can be laid at the feet of President Trump, but it’s been damaged. But we adapt to change quicker than anybody on the record in the last probably 200 years. And I think we can do it again, but we’ve got to get busy. I come back to November. If we get our stuff together, if we get united on the big things, the core values, that we can overcome that damage.

RATHER: I agree with you, it is not in his nature. Former Vice President Biden has a lot of attributes that will stand him well in the campaign, but he is not a stand-toe-to-toe slugger. He has never been known for dirty campaigning. I’m not even sure he knows how to do it. That being the case, what he has to hope is that he can hire enough people who know how to do it.
In 2005, Rather was pushed out of his job as anchor of the CBS Evening News, the job he’d held since 1981, over a report he did for 60 Minutes. The subject was then-President George W. Bush’s record in the Texas Air National Guard in the early 1970s. Rather’s report alleged that Bush had been admitted to a special unit that allowed him to avoid service in Vietnam, and had then deserted with no repercussions, all thanks to political strings pulled by his father, who at the time was the ambassador to the United Nations and then the chairman of the Republican National Committee.

According to Oliver Cooke, a financial-services recruiter at Selby Jennings in New York, banks have been stressing what they call “internal mobility”, or redeploying staff from one department to another. If a bank facing sluggish conditions in debt trading, for example, can convert a trader to a risk analyst or a compliance officer, it can keep people interested — and it can save a bundle on severance.
RATHER: When you take on the tough stuff, my attitude is, Look, we go into these things together. And for better or for worse, we come out the other end together. None of this pointing-at-each-other-in-the-loser’s-locker-room stuff.

But the economic picture has brightened considerably in Arizona, as the housing market stabilized and unemployment hit a post-recession low of 7.8% in May. As part of Forbes’ annual Best States for Business, we look at 35 factors to determine the best and worst states, including projected employment. Arizona is expected to have the fastest job growth at 3% annually over the next five years, according to Moody’s Analytics. The job gains are projected to boost household incomes 3.6% annually through 2017, which ranks second best in the U.S. after Illinois. The added jobs also go hand-in-hand with the state’s economic growth, which Moody’s forecasts to expand at a U.S.-best 4.6% annually.
Rounding out the top-performing sectors of 2014 was an unlikely pair: tech (+16%) and consumer staples (+13.2%)—the most aggressive and most defensive areas of the market, running side-by-side toward the finish line, with confounded spectators struggling to concoct a narrative for this. Why would the least cyclical sectors—healthcare, staples and utilities—lead the markets in a year in which unemployment plummeted and GDP growth gained momentum? Much to the chagrin of the pundit class, sometimes there are no satisfying answers. To quote Kurt Vonnegut:

Now, a lot of people would say, Look, Dan, you’re putting the best possible face on this. And that may be. But I would say that anybody who looks into it knows at this point that what we reported was true. The two basic things were, did George W. Bush get into this so-called “champagne unit” of the Air National Guard as a way of avoiding Vietnam, through his father’s influence? That was one. True. The second: Once he was in, then he just walked away, he disappeared—he was gone for a year or more. Nobody walks away from the service.

2018年它们会拿出更多创造力，包括在非现金效益上的创造力。例如，美国银行(Bank of America)刚刚引入了一项新计划，让全球银行业务和市场部门的员工休至多6周的长假。该计划是有条件的：员工必须在该行工作至少10年，每5年可以申请一次长假，最多享受3次。但根据英国《金融时报》看到的一份内部备忘录，首席运营官汤姆蒙塔格(Tom Montag)鼓励符合条件的员工考虑该计划。
Chinese consumer prices rose in January, an encouraging sign for the world’s second largest economy in a month characterised by turbulence in its financial markets.
A host of examples of the demagogic route to power exists, in both past and present.
China's rich seek own islands
SAN ANTONIO DEL TACHIRA Venezuela (AP) — More than 100000 Venezuelans some of whom drove through the night in caravans crossed into Colombia over the weekend to hunt for food and medicine that are in short supply at home.
Experts offer advice for surviving -- and thriving -- in the next year:
When I first got into it, I thought, Well boy, we’re around these dangerous people, Klan rallies, cue-stick-bearing crowds of people, really bad situations. And at the very beginning, when people would ask where I was from, I would seldom say CBS, because CBS was sometimes called the Communist Broadcasting System, the Colored Broadcasting System. I accentuated a Texas accent. And once, and I’m not proud of this, somebody asked me, “Who do you represent?” and I just sorta blurted out, “the Houston Chronicle.” Which was a lie.
Trade flows brought China’s balance of trade to $40.82bn, roughly $7.2bn below expectations and down about $3.6bn from November’s revised level of $44.23bn (previously $44.61bn). That balance came to Rmb275.4bn in local-currency terms.
在我们有别于从前的失常状态中，她用所需要的一切使人们联想到生活的失重感。“这是一个时代的终结吗？这是美国的末日吗？”她在《When the World Was at War We Kept Dancing》（《当世界陷入战争之中，我们要继续跳舞》）这首歌中吟唱着。“不，这只是开始。”

RATHER: I don’t know whether I should say this—well, I’ll go ahead, it’s true. Particularly when I first started traveling long distances for CBS News, for the long flights to South Africa or Singapore, those flights where you could get drunk twice and still get off the plane sober—which every correspondent knows only too well—I tried to carry a picture of my mother and a picture of Jean.
Detectives have laid charges, but said they will not release the details of the offenses until Friday when both the 18-year-old and the youth are expected to appear in court.
The surviving cat, since named Trooper, has recovered and found a new home.
Since its first release in 1995, many new versions and sequels have been created. However, fans say none could replace the breath-taking and tragic tale of the original.
The rise of populism, even in countries such as the US and UK where plenty of people are in work, has made politicians realise that the quality of jobs is as important as their quantity.
Another exceptional new field is that of nanotechnology.

After CBS, Rather was hired by Mark Cuban in 2006 to produce and host an investigative-reporting show on HDNet, his high-definition television network, which became AXS.tv. Rather’s show was called Dan Rather Reports and ran for about seven years—it was, he says, “a dream job. Going to work for Cuban was one of the best things that ever happened to me.”
“Even though I’m an engineer and an analytical person at heart, the most important decisions I’ve ever made had nothing to do with any of that,” he told an interviewer at Duke University, where he studied for an MBA, last year. “They were always based on intuition.”
And while there is still a long way to go before airplanes designed and made in China compete on the world stage with the likes of the Boeing 737 or Airbus A320, the momentum is there, and the country’s aerospace industry is entering a new phase of development and maturity.
Later, Cuban convinced Rather to host a show called The Big Interview, in which Rather interviewed mostly musicians of a certain age—Steve Perry, Ricky Skaggs, Joan Baez, Robert Plant, Neil Young, Dickey Betts. It was an odd pairing of subject and host, and at first Rather resisted. “Pretty much if Bob Wills or Hank Williams didn’t sing it, I didn’t know it,” he says. “Furthermore, while I like to sing, I can’t carry a tune in a bucket with a lid on it.”
By the end of 2015, Shanghai's population of migrant residents had decreased to 9.8 million, comprising 40.6 percent of the city's roughly 24 million permanent residents, according to statistics released by the Shanghai Municipal Statistics Bureau on Monday.
I asked Cuban why he was so certain the show would work. “Dan is a walking encyclopedia,” he says. “If Elon Musk’s Neuralink could search Dan’s memory, the output would put Google searches to shame. His understanding of history and the people in it, and his ability to connect with anyone, are beyond incredible.”
Rather needed to form a production company for his work with HDNet. He named it News and Guts, and he still runs it today.
Given that every single Wall Street economist had called for higher rates at the start of this year and 67 of 67 economists surveyed by Bloomberg concurred, the rate-sensitive utilities industry would have been the last sector a rational person would want to overweight. Bets on the financial sector were slow to pay off while wagers on “cheap” energy stocks demolished portfolio performance in the third and fourth quarters, just as they had elevated it during the first and second.
That's a fraction of their earning power -- Hillary and Bill Clinton banked $10.6 million mostly from speaking fees and royalties in 2015, while Trump said he made almost $560 million.
RATHER [with no hesitation]: Because I love it. For whatever reason, I’ve had a lifetime passion for covering news. That’s never abated. One of the mildly surprising things to me, if anything the passion burns brighter and harder now than perhaps it ever has. And in recent years, I’ve enjoyed the work as much or more than I ever have. It may be damning with faint praise, but I have come to believe that some of the best work that I’ve done has been done in these last few years.
IMD and Iese Business Schools have tightened their grip on the top spots of the twin FT executive education rankings, monopolising first and second places for both open-enrolment and customised programmes.

Warren Buffett reclaimed the No. 2 spot on the list for the first time since 2014, with a net worth of $75.6 billion, up from $60.8 billion in 2016.
Meanwhile, domestic Internet users have formed a mobile payment habit, with the number of users making payments through smartphones skyrocketing to 469 million last year, up by 31.2 percent from the previous year.
