Topic: Chip shortage hitting Korean carmakers The continued automotive semiconductor shortage is hitting Korean carmakers, with General Motors Korea announcing plans to halve its vehicle production at its plant here. 隨著「韓國通用汽車」宣布旗下車廠減半其汽車產量的計畫，車用半導體持續短缺，正衝擊南韓車商。 GMK said Thursday it decided to halve production at its Bupyeong 2 plant for February. The plant has a daily production capacity of 480 vehicles ― the cut will lead it to monthly production of around 5,000. 韓國通用汽車週四決定其（仁川）「富平2廠」的產量減半。該廠每日產能480輛─此一減產將致使其每月產量為約5000輛。 Analysts say it is tough to say exactly how long the automotive chip shortage could last, while UBS investment bank said it was expecting the supply-demand mismatch will improve sometime in the third quarter. 分析師說，很難講車用晶片荒究竟可能會延續多久。瑞銀投資銀行則表示，其預計供需失衡的情況將在第三季某個時刻得到改善。 Next Article Biden's focus on rebuilding allies to impact Korea-US relations 拜登聚焦重建與盟邦關係 將影響韓美關係 President Joe Biden's attention to "repairing alliances" has raised hopes that things between South Korea and U.S. will be different under the new U.S. leader. （美國）總統拜登關注「修補同盟」，已提高韓美間的情況將在這位美國新領袖下有所不同的希望。 "This will involve reaching an agreement on Special Measures Agreement negotiations fairly quickly, taking South Korea's views on North Korea into consideration even if Seoul's and Washington's positions are different, cooperation in multilateral issues such as climate change or trade, and trying to get the Moon Jae-in government on board his administration's position on China," Ramon Pacheco Pardo, who serves as associate professor of international relations at King's College London. 倫敦國王學院國際關係副教授拉蒙‧巴奇可‧帕爾多說，「這將包括很快會就（分攤駐韓美軍經費的）『特別措施協定』達成協議。即使首爾與華府的立場不同，仍將南韓對北韓的看法納入考量。在氣候變遷或貿易之類的多邊議題上合作。還有試著使（南韓總統）文在寅政府加入拜登政府對中國的立場」。 "I would also expect Biden to support South Korea becoming part of an expanded G7 or similar forum, and supporting a more vocal Seoul in international relations," added Pardo. 帕爾多還說，「我也預料拜登將支持南韓躋身一個擴大的『七大工業國』或類似論壇的成員，並支持一個在國際關係上更勇於發聲的首爾」。 Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1430611 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1422097 Next Article Topic: Internet Explorer gravestone goes viral in South Korea For Jung Ki-young, a South Korean software engineer, Microsoft Corp's decision to retire its Internet Explorer web browser marked the end of a quarter-century love-hate relationship with the technology. 對南韓軟體工程師鄭其永（譯音）來說，微軟公司讓它的「網際網路探險家（IE）」網路瀏覽器退休的決定，代表著與這項科技愛恨交織四分之一個世紀的關係的結束。 To commemorate its demise, he spent a month and 430,000 won designing and ordering a headstone with Explorer's "e" logo and the English epitaph: "He was a good tool to download other browsers." 為了紀念IE的隕落，他花了一個月和43萬韓元設計並訂製一個墓碑，上面有IE的「e」的商標，以及英文的墓誌銘：「他是個用來下載其他瀏覽器的好工具」。 After the memorial went on show at a cafe run by his brother in the southern city of Gyeongju, a photo of the tombstone went viral. 這個紀念碑在南方城市慶州由他的兄弟所經營的一家咖啡館展出後，墓碑的照片在網路上爆紅。 Jung said the memorial showed his mixed feelings for the older software, which had played such a big part in his working life. 鄭其永說，這個紀念碑顯示出他對這款在他的工作生活中發揮了重大作用的古老軟體的複雜感情。 "It was a pain in the ass, but I would call it a love-hate relationship because Explorer itself once dominated an era," he told Reuters. 他告訴路透：「它是個令人厭煩的東西，但我會稱之為愛恨交織的關係，因為探險家一度主導一個時代」。 Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1528843 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/595260 Next Article Topic: South Korean toilet turns excrement into power and digital currency Cho Jae-weon, an urban and environmental engineering professor at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology（UNIST）, has designed an eco-friendly toilet connected to a laboratory that uses excrement to produce biogas and manure. 南韓國立蔚山科學技術研究院的都市和環境工程教授趙宰元（譯音），設計出一種環境友善的馬桶，可透過與一間實驗室連線，將糞便製造成生物沼氣和肥料。 The BeeVi toilet - a portmanteau of the words bee and vision - uses a vacuum pump to send faeces into an underground tank, reducing water use. There, microorganisms break down the waste to methane, which becomes a source of energy for the building, powering a gas stove, hot-water boiler and solid oxide fuel cell. 這個馬桶名為BeeVi，為蜜蜂和視野的英文字詞的混成詞。它用真空幫浦將排泄物送至地下儲存槽，以減少用水。槽內的微生物將排泄物分解成沼氣，進而為大樓提供電力，點燃瓦斯爐、熱水器，以及做為固態氧化物燃料電池的燃料。 An average person defecates about 500g a day, which can be converted to 50 litres of methane gas. This gas can generate 0.5kWh of electricity or be used to drive a car for about 1.2km. 每人每天平均排便500公克，可轉換成50升沼氣，進而產生0.5千瓦時的電力，使汽車行進約1.2公里。 Next Article Why Koreans could soon become a year younger 為什麼韓國人可能即將年輕1歲 "How old are you"? It's a simple question with a clear answer. But for those in South Korea, answering this question is anything but straightforward. 「你幾歲？」這是答案很清楚的簡單問題，但是對南韓人來說，回答這個問題一點也不簡單。 In South Korea, when a baby is born they are considered a year old. Come New Year's Day, they gain another year. This means a baby born in December would be considered to be two years old in just a few weeks. 在南韓，寶寶一出生就被認為已經1歲。到了新年，他們又多了1歲。這意味著，12月出生的寶寶，僅僅幾週就會被認為已經2歲大。 But this "Korean age" method may soon change as the country's president-elect Yoon Suk-yeol is pushing for this centuries-old method of counting to be abolished. 不過，這種「韓國年紀」算法或許即將改變，因為該國總統當選人尹錫悅正推動廢除這種已有幾世紀之久的年齡計算法。 Lee Yong-ho, the chief of the president-elect's transition committee, said the incoming administration was looking to standardise the way age is counted in order to bring South Korea in line with the rest of the world. 總統當選人交接委員會主席李勇浩說，即將上任的新政府正準備將計算年齡方式標準化，讓南韓與世界其他地方一致。Soure article: https://news.ltn.com.tw/news/world/paper/1485239 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1517919

I'm Stacey Simms and these are the top diabetes stories and headlines of the past seven days. XX In the news is brought to you by T1D Exchange! T1D Exchange is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving outcomes for the entire T1D population. https://t1dexchange.org/stacey/ XX The copay cap on insulin may come back before the Senate in a few weeks. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer say he'll bring tht issue back up.. after Republicans blocked it in a sweeping climate, inflation and health care package passed by the Senate on Monday. Speaking on MSNBC's “The Rachel Maddow Show.” Schumer said, “We're going to come back and make them vote on that again.” Seven Republicans still voted with all 50 Democrats, three short of the 60 votes needed, and it is possible more Republicans would support it if it came up as a standalone measure. It's not clear if this would again be a copay cap or in fact a cap on the actual price of insulin for all, including the uninsured. https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/3594003-schumer-senate-will-vote-again-on-35-insulin-cap-after-gop-blocked-it/ XX Dexcom is pushing back the timeline for a U.S. launch the G7. That's after the FDA raised questions about the device's software during a review. This has something to do with how the G7 and it's smartphone apps deliver alarms to users. Looks like maybe a limited release in the 4th quarter of this year and full rollout in 2023 if there aren't any other hiccups. As you likely know, the G7 is nearly 60-percent smaller than the G6, it's transmitter and sensor all in one and has a much shorter warmup period. It's been approved in Europe since March. https://www.fiercebiotech.com/medtech/dexcom-resubmit-g7-glucose-monitor-software-fda-review-pushing-back-us-launch XX One type of once-a-week basal insulin gets the go ahead to move forward with clinical trials in the US. Gan & Lee Pharmaceuticals says it's investigation drug called GZR4 is more stable with less day to day variation than once a day basal insulin. There are a few of these weekly insulins in trials, none yet approved. Gan & Lee is also doing trials of the drug in China where they are already a big player in the insulin market. https://www.ganlee.com/detail/668.html XX XX Good news for Senseonics, makers of the Eversense implantable CGM. Shares were up on second quarter earnings and future expectations. I don't generally report on stock market moves of diabetes companies, but the past few years have been a bit iffy for Senseonics and there was speculation on whether this CGM option might not be available in the US. They partnered with Ascensia Diabetes Care and got the six month approval for Eversense earlier this year. https://www.massdevice.com/senseonics-stock-q2-2022/ XX A new call for comments to the FDA but the deadline is TODAY august 15 at midnight eastern time. I'm going to read directly from a post by Joanne Milo in the CGM in the Cloud off topic group. Joanne's been a guest of the show and leads the loop and learn group – she writes. “We have until August 15, 2022 to provide comments on FDA changes to the way CGM display and alarm systems are regulated. This has implications for remote monitoring and automated insulin delivery systems, both commercial and DIY. We request your assistance in helping the FDA and device providers (FDA considers software for treatment of disease to be a device) understand the benefits of real-time CGM access and the risks we carry by not having ubiquitous real-time access to our diabetes device data. We hope you will choose to spend a moment to add your voice to the #WeAreNotWaiting chorus. They provide some text which I'll link up in the show notes as well as the links to this post and the FDA comment portal. https://www.regulations.gov/commenton/FDA-2018-N-1910-0047?fbclid=IwAR2WAtGl3vjTUonamNdlBtAu_pg2-xQOVy8bSqG2peLCUz2eq8R8OgLqtHQ https://www.facebook.com/groups/CGMITCOFFTOPIC XX The T1D Exchange Registry is a research study conducted online over time, designed to foster innovation and improve the lives of people with T1D. The platform is open to both adults and children with T1D living in the U.S. Personal information remains confidential and participation is fully voluntary. Once enrolled, participants will complete annual surveys and have the opportunity to sign up for other studies on specific topics related to T1D.

Beyond Type 1 will be among the 500 official charity partners providing thousands of runners the opportunity to run in the world's most popular marathon. This year's Beyond Type Run team includes nearly 50 runners across the United States, Canada, Ecuador and Australia, who are raising awareness and funds for type 1 diabetes as ambassadors for Beyond Type 1, showcasing how they live beyond their diagnoses and supporting crucial efforts and programs for others affected by this condition. First-time Marathon Runner Kyle Banks, known for his tour with the Broadway cast of The Lion King, is the team captain. “The Beyond Type Run team displays the ultimate resilience and strength as they run the marathon. If it weren't for the team jerseys or the technology attached to their bodies, you'd never know they were living with a chronic illness,” said Beyond Type 1 CEO Deborah Dugan. “We are grateful to them for helping us raise awareness, and we thank all of our sponsors for their generous support and donations to the team.” Since 2017, Beyond Type 1 has had roughly 150 people with type 1 diabetes run the TCS New York City Marathon through the New York Road Runners (NYRR) Official Charity Partner Program. “The TCS New York City Marathon serves as one of the world's largest fundraising platforms supporting hundreds of charities and philanthropic efforts,” said Christine Burke, Senior VP of Strategic Partnerships, NYRR. “We are very proud to support Beyond Type 1 and the incredible impact they have made to the diabetes community as they raise important funds to support people with diabetes.” The NYRR Official Charity Partner Program offers an opportunity for nonprofit organizations to raise funds to support their missions and services. Participating charities can offer guaranteed entry to runners who fundraise on their behalf. Since its inception in 2006, the TCS New York City Marathon Official Charity Partner Program has raised more than $400 million for more than 1,000 worthy nonprofit organizations across the globe. Prior to the start of the official program, the New York City Marathon had served as an outlet for individual philanthropic runners since the 1980s. https://beyondtype1.org/beyond-type-1-nyc-marathon-2022/ XX Morgan Shepard book Morgan Shepherd So happy to announce my book “ T1D Looks Like Us!

People are paying more for food in 2022 - a lot more! And in countries where food security is frail, access to the basics is going to get harder. Price spikes are being felt around the world. In some cases leading to violence, in other cases, triggering famine warnings. Russia's war in Ukraine is fuelling the crisis first by targeting Ukraine's wheat and sunflower oil producers, and second by disrupting global trade networks. What should G7 and G20 nations be doing about this? According to Ian Mitchell, it may be time to go beyond traditional notions of food aid, and to look at a bigger determinant: Finance. Ian Mitchell is a senior fellow and the director of development cooperation in Europe at the Center for Global Development. He leads CGD's work in Europe on how governments' policies accelerate or inhibit development and poverty reduction—considering both the effectiveness of aid and policies beyond aid including trade, migration, environment, and security. He is also an associate fellow at Chatham House and at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Mitchell has expertise in the economics and developmental impact of including on trade, agriculture, and policy development in the EU and G20. He leads the annual Commitment to Development Index (CDI) and the Quality of Official Development Assistance (QuODA). Recently, he has developed new measures of how agriculture and trade policies affect lower income countries; identified new metrics of aid effectiveness; and developed new approaches to the UK's development policy post-Brexit.

«Il consigliere di Stato e ministro degli Esteri cinese, Wang Yi, ha condannato risolutamente la dichiarazione relativa a Taiwan da parte dei ministri degli Esteri dei Paesi G7.Wang Yi ha affermato che il processo delle tensioni nello Stretto di Taiwan è stato chiarissimo. Gli Stati Uniti hanno provocato lo scontro creando la crisi e peggiorando lo stato di tensione.La dichiarazione dei ministri degli Esteri dei paesi G7 confonde il giusto con lo sbagliato, e accusa infondatamente la Cina per le sue legittime misure adottate per salvaguardare la propria sovranità e integrità territoriale». Lo si legge in una nota diffusa dall'Ambasciata della Repubblica Popolare Cinese in Italia. «Le azioni sbagliate del G7 hanno suscitato la rabbia del popolo cinese. La sovranità e l’indipendenza della Cina e di altri Paesi sono state ottenute dalle sanguinose lotte del popolo e non potranno mai essere violate senza motivo. Il consigliere di Stato e ministro degli Esteri cinese Wang ha poi detto che la Cina di oggi non è più la Cina del 19° secolo e che quella storia passata non dovrà più ripetersi», conclude la nota.

President Volodymyr Zelensky has made an unannounced appearance at a Black Sea port ahead of the departure of the first ship loaded with grain since the war began five months ago. Also in the programme: as the US and China trade warnings over Taiwan we'll hear from the island about how tensions can be lowered; and palaeontologists are celebrating the discovery of a remarkable new Jurassic fossil site in the west of England. (Photo: A handout photo made available by the Ukrainian Presidential Press Service shows Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and G7 countries' ambassadors visit to the port of Odesa, Ukraine, 29 July 2022. Ukraine was ready to export Ukrainian grain and waiting for signals from partners about the start of transportation, Zelensky said on his official Telegram account.

POLICY SEMINAR Addressing the global food security crisis: Strengthening research and policy responses Co-organized by German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and CGIAR JUL 25, 2022 - 9:30 TO 11:00AM EDT Russia's invasion of Ukraine has further increased food and input prices at the global level, with the strongest impacts felt by the poorest in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific. The World Food Program projects that the conflict could put an additional 47 million people at risk of acute hunger worldwide. The impacts of this crisis are unfolding as countries cope with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, more frequent and damaging extreme weather events caused by climate change, and other conflicts. Germany holds the G7 presidency in 2022 and is thus in a leadership role to address these interrelated challenges and crises. Together with World Bank President David Malpass, Svenja Schulze, Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development of Germany (BMZ), recently established the Global Alliance for Food Security (GAFS) to catalyze an agile, immediate, and coordinated response to the unfolding global food security crisis. As the world's largest international agrifood research consortium, CGIAR plays a pivotal role in providing research to help shape context-specific policies and solutions. More than ever, close collaboration between CGIAR, national governments, and international organizations is needed to meet the strong demand for innovations and ensure their delivery, scaling, and impact. This policy seminar will analyze the impacts of the war in Ukraine on food security in low- and middle-income countries, highlight GAFS, and showcase how CGIAR's immediate and longer-term responses can support policy initiatives. Opening Remarks -Stefan Kachelriess-Matthess, Project manager, Fund International Agricultural Research, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) Setting the scene: Implications and responses to the global food security crisis -Martin Fregene, Director, Department of Agriculture and Agro-Industry, African Development Bank -Sebastian Lesch, Head of Division, Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains, International Agricultural Policy, Agriculture, Innovation, German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) (via pre-recorded video) How can international agricultural research support short-, medium- and long-term responses to the global food security crisis? -Martin Kropff, Global Director for Resilient Agri-Food Systems, CGIAR -Johan Swinnen, Global Director, CGIAR Systems Transformation Science Group & Director General, IFPRI -Sonja Vermeulen, Global Director for Genetic Innovations, CGIAR Bridging back to practice – comments from key stakeholders -Sory Ouane, Senior Adviser to the Chief Executive Officer of the African Union Development Agency (AUDA)-NEPAD -Francine Picard Mukazi, Co-founder and Director of Partnerships, Shamba Centre for Food & Climate Q&A Wrap up, next steps and closing Johan Swinnen, Global Director, CGIAR Systems Transformation Science Group & Director General, IFPRI Felicitas Röhrig, Senior Policy Officer, Division of Sustainable Agricultural Value Chains, International Agricultural Policy, Agriculture, Innovation, Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) Stefan Kachelriess-Matthess, Project manager of Fund International Agricultural Research, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) Moderator Stefan Kachelriess-Matthess, Project manager of Fund International Agricultural Research, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) More on the seminar: https://www.ifpri.org/event/addressing-food-security-crisis-caused-war-ukraine-research-and-policy-responses Subscribe IFPRI Insights newsletter and event announcements at www.ifpri.org/content/newsletter-subscription

Geologist Gregory Wrightstone joins Jacki to discuss the Supreme Court case West Virginia v. EPA , reigning in the power of the unelected bureaucrats of the regulatory state from overreaching, destroying freedom. This case could have big implications for pulling power away from other agencies, returning it to our elected representatives. - - - - - Everywhere we have news of food shortages, yet the federal government is moving to use more corn for fuel as ethanol. Jacki explains why this is exactly the wrong course. - - - - - Then, the G7 discussed imposing an oil “price cap,” something the G7 has zero ability to impose. This idea of the U.S. Treasury Secretary demonstrates a scary lack of understanding about how the foundational input into the world economy – energy – works in the global marketplace. No wonder our economy is tanking, despite the Biden Administration having inherited a strong V-curve recovery. Jacki explains. - - - - - Finally, J. Christian Adams of the Public Interest Legal Foundation reviews his lawsuits across the country to remove dead voters and other illegal listees from the voter rolls, including his latest victory removing over 21,000 dead voters from Pennsylvania's rolls - hundreds of whom cast votes in 2016 and 2018!

We had the great opportunity today to host a friend and longtime auto industry entrepreneur, Henrik Fisker, CEO of Fisker Inc., for our first electric car-focused episode. Henrik is a leading automotive designer and some of his creations include the BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9, Viking motorcycle, Fisker Karma, and Force 1, to name a few. He also previously held executive positions at Ford Motor Company and Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd. Simply put, his impressive career is something us car nerds can only dream of, and we were thrilled to visit with him and discuss the new Fisker Ocean electric SUV. Our conversation had a few major themes: electric car development, supply chains, consumer attitudes, the hybrid market, adoption rate of EVs, Fisker's strategic partnerships and outsourced manufacturing, and a few of the ways Fisker has separated themselves from competitors with pricing, range, and unique design features. It was also fascinating to hear Fisker's vision for a fully online consumer experience from purchasing to delivery to maintenance and how they are reimagining the traditional dealership design. Before Henrik got away, we couldn't help ourselves... we asked him about his favorite cars of all time. He had some great answers! To kick us off, Mike Bradley presented a summary of this week's equity & commodity performance and interesting headlines, and also flagged that we are headed into Q2'22 earnings with OFS reporting this week. Colin Fenton expanded on Mike's thoughts with an international update on markets, changes in G7 leadership, Nord Stream gas flows, and a key fertilizer production statistic from this week. We had a lot of fun spending time with Henrik and are excited to follow Fisker's future. Thanks to you all for watching!
It's been quite an incredible week in global markets. The Euro hit parity against the US Dollar for the first time in 20 years, the Italian government is about to implode, the Tory leadership contest rumbles on, and the big US banks kick off the latest earnings season. However, the show stopper was undoubtedly the latest US CPI reading which came in at a red hot 9.1%, the largest gain since the end of 1981.Piers and I discuss how the market reacted and more importantly how the US central bank may react. On the same day, the Bank of Canada delivered a surprise 100bps rate hike, not only the largest rate hike by them in 24 years but the first G7 country to make such an aggressive hike in this economic cycle. Has Canada now laid the groundwork for a similar-sized move from Jay Powell and the gang later this month?We then switch attention to the visible feud between Elon Musk and Twitter, the latter who filed a forceful complaint against Tesla boss on Tuesday, alleging he had treated his $44bn offer for the social media company as an “elaborate joke”.Who wins this battle? has there been historical precedence? Has Elon gone one step too far this time?!Daily newsletter https://amplifyme.com/market-makerTake a Finance Accelerator simulation https://amplifyme.com/course/finance-acceleratorConnect with Anthony https://www.linkedin.com/in/anthonycheung10/Connect with Piers https://www.linkedin.com/in/pierscurran/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Nearly five months into Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Western governments have a problem: despite international sanctions and rebukes for Russia's actions, the world's reliance (especially Europe's) on Russian energy is sustaining Russia's invasion of Ukraine.The world is already feeling the effects of the invasion on energy prices, and now Europe has announced it will impose an embargo on Russian oil by the end of the year — a move that would significantly impede Russia’s ability to benefit from high oil prices, but would also further constrict Europe’s energy supplies going into what could be a cold winter. If actually implemented as described, the embargo is also likely to drive the global price of oil far higher, triggering recessions around the world. Because of those… problems… world leaders from the G7 have been discussing possible solutions.I talk with Margarita Balmaceda, a professor of diplomacy and international relations at Seton Hall University and an expert on the energy trade in Eastern Europe, about those ideas, whether they might work, how Europe allowed itself to get so dependent on Russia despite manifest signs of Russia’s unreliability as an energy partner.Visit www.joshbarro.com for a transcript of this episode.

Douglas Rediker, founding partner of International Capital Strategies and a nonresident senior fellow at Brookings, discusses a range of global economic challenges that G7 leaders tackled in their recent summit in Germany. These include a U.S. proposal to cap the price of Russian energy exports (and why Rediker is skeptical about it); Russia's default on sovereign debt and the risk of debt default in developing countries; the role of Chinese lending in developing economies; and the enormous cost of rebuilding Ukraine and who might bear it.

The overturning of Roe V. Wade and recent mass shootings continue to cast a shadow over American politics. President Joe Biden has been reacting to those and other domestic problems with an incremental approach, and many Democrats find that too slow. More and more of them are publicly expressing their frustration. How much will this hurt Biden politically? Guest host Gustavo Arellano discusses with Tim Carney, columnist at the Washington Examiner and senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, on the right; and Baratunde Thurston, a founding partner at Puck, creator and host of the podcast “How to Citizen,” and host of the PBS show “America Outdoors with Baratunde Thurston,” on the left. Meanwhile, Biden scored international wins recently at the G7 and NATO summits. Will that shore up his poll numbers and political capital back at home? His current approval rating is 38%, according to a poll released last week by Harvard CAPS-Harris. Panelists discuss with special guest Juliette Kayyem, professor of national security at Harvard; former assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security; and author of the book “The Devil Never Sleeps: Learning to Live in an Age of Disasters.” Plus, who are the winners and losers of the 2022 primary season heading into the November midterms? And what is next for both parties?
In the 5 months since Russia's invasion, the American public's attention has turned back to problems at home — and US President Joe Biden hasn't gotten a good grade for his handling of them. But last week, he was able to lead major policy breakthroughs at the NATO and G7 summits.Today, can President Biden's push to spread democracy abroad help him deal with various crises back home?
