Welcome to the newsletter highlighting The Economist’s best writing on the pandemic

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 3 ottobre 2020

Our cover this week examines the Republican claim that, as president, Joe Biden would succumb to the plans of the radical left—dramatically expanding the role of government and crippling American business. How much of a danger is that? In our writing on the pandemic we focused on the ramifications of the virus in different countries. We have an analysis of the news that President Donald Trump and the first lady have contracted the disease. Our lead note in Asia tries to get to the bottom of why Pakistan has recorded so many fewer deaths and infections than India, in spite of being poorer. We report on the second wave in Spain and the problems in Iraq. We catch up with the election campaign in New Zealand, where Jacinda Ardern has been riding a covid-19 high. And we trace the connections between the pandemic and booming rich-world house prices. Our mortality tracker uses the gap between the total number of people who have died from any cause and the historical average for the time of year to estimate how many deaths from the virus the official statistics are failing to pick up. We have also been covering the pandemic in Economist Radio and Economist Films. We have a film this week that looks at how covid-19 has disrupted world trade, which was already faltering before the virus struck. The pandemic will not kill off globalisation, but it will deepen the cracks in it. The weather in the northern hemisphere is turning cold. If you are spending more time indoors with people from outside your household, don’t forget your mask! By Zanny Minton Beddoes Editor-In-Chief

Switzerland and Liechtenstein have municipalities with fascinating nature, local cuisine, picturesque landscapes and the legacy of in these small but great places of excellence where culture, art and natural beauty blend with quality of life and traditions dating back to thousands of years”, explained Mr. Mestre.The Federation integrates different associations in several countries such as Spain, France, Italy, Japan and Wallonia, and Russia, Saxony (Germany), Lebanon or Switzerland as observers. All those (and the best villages of each country) have been carefully chosen to widely share their beauty, whether natural, artistic, cultural or culinary.The federation gathers around 700 villages with specific characteristics and history, all certified for their uniqueness and excellence. This federation represents all this values, ensuring the protection and enhancement of this immense heritage. “This meeting had the objective of strengthening the ties of work and friendship with counterparts Associations, as the one in Switzerland, in order to build a strong link with the inhabitants of our beautiful villages, as well as the preservation and the transmission of this heritage to future generations, and the development of an international sustainable tourism”, ended Mr. Mestre, adding that “one of the most important goals of these associations is to promote small towns and make them more popular.

Vice President to Welcome Airborne Corps from Iraq

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 7 aprile 2009

Washington, DC  Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden will travel to Fort Bragg, North Carolina on Wednesday, April 8th to welcome home the XVIII Airborne Corps back from Iraq.  This is the XVIII Airborne Corps’ second deployment to Iraq since 2006.  Vice President Biden will deliver remarks at the Welcome Home Ceremony. Fort Bragg is known as the “Home of the Airborne and Special Operations Forces.”  Fort Bragg is the home to the XVIII Airborne Corps, the 82nd Airborne Division, as well as the U.S. Army Special Operations Command and the U.S. Army Parachute Team (the Golden Knights).  Its mission is to maintain the XVIII Airborne Corps as a strategic crisis response force, manned and trained to deploy rapidly by air, sea and land anywhere in the world, prepared to fight upon arrival and win. The XVIII Airborne Corps assumed command of Multi-National Corps-Iraq on February 14, 2008.  As the operational headquarters for more than 158,000 ground troops assigned to three Army Divisions, one Marine Expeditionary Force, three Coalition Divisions and several separate brigades, the XVIII Airborne Corps’ mission was to conduct full spectrum operations to defeat extremist groups, provide security for the Iraqi people and to develop the Iraqi Security Forces and the Iraqi Government’s capacity.  The XVIII Airborne Corps completed its mission upon relinquishing command of Multi-National Corps-Iraq to I Corps of Fort Lewis, Washington on April 4, 2009.
