Merkel’s party puts off choice of new leader for 2nd time

merkel’s party puts off choice of new leader for 2nd time

By GEIR MOULSON

BERLIN (AP) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party on Monday delayed for the second time a decision on who will become its new leader, putting off a convention planned for December in a coronavirus-prompted move that irked one of the top contenders.

Whoever wins the Christian Democratic Union’s leadership will be in pole position to become the center-right candidate to succeed Merkel as chancellor in a German election expected next fall, though that isn’t guaranteed.

Current leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, Merkel’s immediate successor as party chairwoman, took over in late 2018. She struggled to impose her authority before announcing in February that she wouldn’t run for chancellor in the 2021 election and would relinquish the party leadership.

A special April convention for about 1,000 delegates to choose the new CDU leader fell victim to the the first phase of the COVID-19 crisis. The party put off the decision until a regular convention in Stuttgart on Dec. 4.

With new virus infections rebounding in Germany as they are across Europe, and gatherings again being restricted in many places, officials concluded that the Stuttgart convention couldn’t go ahead either.

The party’s general secretary, Paul Ziemiak, said the leadership still hopes to hold a convention …

The New Orleans Saints’ quarterback threw a pair of touchdowns earlier in the day to stretch his career tally to 558, increasing his lead over Brady’s 555.But if Brady’s 20-year career has told us anything, it’s that he thrives under pressure. READ: New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones tackled by the turf after 80-yard run As the Buccaneers offense caught fire during their 45-20 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders, the former New England Patriots quarterback threw four touchdowns — he also ran in another — to move ahead of Brees on the NFL’s all-time touchdown pass list. On third-and-goal with 3:13 remaining, Brady found Tyler Johnson in the back of the end zone for the 559th touchdown pass of his career.Having moved from the Patriots in the offseason, Brady has thrown 18 touchdowns in his first six games away from head coach Bill Belichick. The win was the Buccaneers’ third of the season, moving them above the Saints and to the top the NFC South division. “We’re 5-2, we’re at a decent place, we’re not quite at the halfway …

Japan’s New Leader Sets Ambitious Goal of Carbon Neutrality by 2050

japan’s new leader sets ambitious goal of carbon neutrality by 2050

TOKYO — Japan will be carbon neutral by 2050, its prime minister said on Monday, making an ambitious pledge to sharply accelerate the country’s global warming targets, even as it plans to build more than a dozen new coal-burning power plants in the coming years.The prime minister, Yoshihide Suga, laid out the goal during his first major policy speech since taking office in September, when Japan’s longest-serving leader, Shinzo Abe, abruptly resigned. The announcement came just weeks after China, Japan’s regional rival, said it would reduce its net carbon emissions to zero by 2060.Addressing Japan’s Parliament, Mr. Suga called for the country to “be carbon neutral in 2050,” a declaration that drew loud applause from lawmakers. Achieving that goal will be good not only for the world, he said, but also for Japan’s economy and global standing.“Taking an aggressive approach to global warming will bring about a transformation in our industrial structure and economic system that will lead to big growth” in the economy, he said, answering critics who have warned of the economic consequences.Japan’s new climate pledge is a major upgrade of its previous commitment to reducing greenhouse gases, and necessary if the …

The game poses a common goal. Each piece is different. The cube is a system. All the pieces are linked. It’s there, with its bright, mixed, distinctive colors. Arouse curiosity when someone is manipulating you. It’s exciting when we ourselves manage to fit at least one full face. In short, it has something irresistible: wherever there is a Rubik’s cube, the temptation is to take it in your hands and start playing. This 2020 the cube celebrates 40 years of world landing. In essence, it is a three-dimensional mechanical puzzle created by Hungarian sculptor and architecture professor Ernő Rubik in 1974. He licensed it to Ideal Toys in 1980 and from there began its path of expansion. Originally called the “magic cube,” it is considered the world’s best-selling toy, with some 500 million pieces. According to the Guinness Guide of Records the original format is 3 x 3 x 3 cubes, and more recently it has been transformed into a megamix format (dodecahedron, 12 faces), a pyramid, a clock (on two sides, each face with 9 clocks to line up) and …

Colombian security forces have killed a rebel commander known best by his nom de guerre Uriel, during an operation in the coastal Pacific province of Choco, president Iván Duque has said.
Uriel, whose real name was Andres Felipe Vanegas Londono, was a leader in the National Liberation Army (ELN) and was known for his media appearances, online videos and a Twitter account.
Speaking in a broadcast with police and military leaders on Sunday evening, Duque said Uriel was responsible for kidnappings, the murders of human rights activists and members of the security forces, and forced recruitment of minors.

“The terrorist Andres Felipe Vanegas Londono, who used the alias Uriel, has been downed,” Duque said. “This criminal was killed in a meticulous operation of shared intelligence by the national army of Colombia and the national police.”
Uriel used his social media to “defend crime”, Duque said, as he called for other ELN members to demobilize.

Reclaiming Leadership In The Age Of Agile

Leadership and management need to be integrated

getty

In a world with too many disengaged, dissatisfied, and disaffected employees, as well as bumbling governments unable to deal with destabilizing change, and too many people putting misplaced trust in populist leaders, it’s sad to note that even leadership experts concede that the multi-billion-dollar leadership industry has been of little help.
The never-ending array of conferences, books, workshops, and training programs on the theme of leadership has not only failed to generate appropriate leadership behavior, or even agreement on the concept of leadership: they have often made things worse.
A different, more pragmatic, and more agile concept of leadership is needed to cope with the complex, rapidly changing world of the 21st century.
The Leadership Disease
A key part of the problem of leadership is that leadership itself is suffering from a lethal disease: the concept of leadership has become disconnected from getting stuff done in the world. The well-meaning efforts of business school writers, like Warren Bennis and Abraham Zaleznik, to inject an ethical element into leadership has ended up with leadership becoming separate from execution, while management is looked down on as something mundane, tactical, empty of ethics, and …
