US Navy, NATO train to counter missile threat from Russian submarines

  • As Navy warships practiced hunting submarines in the Atlantic this month, NATO cut the ribbon at its new US-based joint command.
  • Both events point to a major focus for the US and its NATO allies: countering increasingly active and increasingly potent Russian submarines.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

With increasingly sophisticated Russian submarines prowling the Atlantic, the US Navy is working harder to keep track of what’s happening off the US coast.

The Navy’s focus on anti-submarine warfare waned during the Middle East wars, but attention is shifting, underscored by Exercise Black Widow 2020 in the North Atlantic between September 12 and 18.

The deterioration of Russia’s navy in the decade after the Cold War “allowed a lot of folks to think that the homeland is a sanctuary from Russian forces,” Vice Adm. Daryl L. Caudle, commander of Naval Submarine Forces, told reporters on September 16.

“But it’s

Africa: Political Repression in Africa and the Threat of American Visa Ban

Iboro Otu, Akwa Ibom state gubernatorial candidate of the Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party in the 2019 national elections relived his effort to get justice for perceived electoral fraud against him

After the 2019 gubernatorial elections in Akwa Ibom State, I was quite disappointed with the outcome and rightfully so. The outcome, as usual, was abundantly marred by multiple irregularities and of course, the incumbent carried the day. Your question would be, ‘was I hoping to win?’ Well, we weren’t hoping to lose the way it came! It was a slaughter. We didn’t lose, the thing is, we didn’t even stand. Let me put it this way for dramatic effect; even my vote, at my Polling Unit, wasn’t counted. I must have mistakenly voted for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or the All Progressives Congress (APC) or worse, voided. It was that bad.

CLO’s, CSO’s, international observers all spoke against the

Market Failure? kENUP and YUVEDO High-Level Online Event Kick-starts Call for Projects Tackling the Growing Threat of Parkinson’s and Other Neurodegenerative Diseases.

BERLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On Friday, 18 September 2020, YUVEDO Foundation and kENUP Foundation held a high-level online conference to kick-start an open public call for projects tackling the growing threat of Parkinson’s (PD) and other neurodegenerative diseases (NDD). Despite the predictable medical, social and economic challenges of NDDs, too little has happened in recent years to address the underlying causes of NDDs.

An expert report by Professor Maier-Rigaud of NERA Economic Consulting presented at the conference, showed that there are indications for market and regulatory failure around the development of interventions against PD and other NDDs: High risk in product development is associated with massive cost but little potential profit. This has meant that many pharmaceutical companies have stopped their R&D investment in drugs or biologicals for the prevention and treatment of NDDs.

‘Project Brainstorm aims at developing a financing mechanism setting the right incentives to eliminate underlying market failures’

Biden’s ‘Made in America’ goals face a big threat — his own economic plan

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden unveiled his new “Made in America” plan this week. It amounts to a laundry list of vague promises to create jobs, increase federal spending by hundreds of billions of dollars, and raise taxes on U.S. companies with overseas operations.

But the biggest threat to Biden’s “Made in America” goals is his own economic plan.

BIDEN VOWS TO HIKE CORPORATE TAXES ON ‘DAY ONE’ OF HIS PRESIDENCY

If he were really serious about strengthening businesses and workers here at home, his first step would be to make America the best place on earth to build businesses. That means cutting — not increasing — taxes and regulations he’s already put on the table.

Biden’s misguided approach to the economy isn’t limited to this latest “Made in America” plan. His
