Expect China's President Xi Jinping to answer that question unequivocally on Monday with his keynote at the World Economic Forum's first global virtual meeting. It will leave little doubt that managing relations with China will be both President Joe Biden's most immediate and most defining foreign policy challenge. It's hard to imagine more dramatic timing for Xi's "special address," coming in the wake of Biden's inaugural, Trump's second impeachment and the Capitol insurrection that prompted it. Whatever words Xi chooses, his message will be clear: this is China's historic moment. With modifications for global listeners, it will echo the theme he delivered a few days ago to a...

It shows a strong commitment from ownership who wants to win, who wants to put a winner on the field for the fan base of New York, and...
    TommL | E+ | Getty Images With sustainable investing, you cannot only use your money to make the world a better place, you can also use your money's voice. Such is the job of shareholder advocacy, a primary strategy under the umbrella of sustainable/socially responsible investing. A small, but dedicated number of financial advisors, along with other active asset owners and investment managers, are deploying this type of activism on behalf of their clients to make large corporations take notice of, and respond to, shareholder concerns. The three main ways this type of activism raises the voice of the shareholder are company engagement, shareholder resolutions and proxy voting.1. Company engagementCompany engagement, also called dialogue, refers to a conversation with a company on environmental, social and governance issues of concern to the shareholder. The vast majority of companies will talk to their shareholders, said advocacy pioneer Tim Smith, director of ESG...
    By now, the annual green chile harvest and selling season have nearly wrapped up, with tens of thousands of bushels of roasted peppers from both Colorado and New Mexico safely stored in freezers. But the fiery rivalry between the Pueblo growing region and the world-renowned Hatch Valley in New Mexico lives on. At Mountain Toad Brewing in Golden, the battle will take on liquid form today when co-owner Thad Briggs taps two different chile beers, one made from Pueblo chiles and one made from the Hatch version. "We do a Smoked Hatch Pale Ale every year," Briggs says. But this time around, when the brewery posted about it on social media, a regular customer "teasingly called us out for not representing Colorado's Pueblo chiles. We accepted the challenge and said if he could bring us some hot Pueblo chilies, we'd brew with them. So he did and I asked him...
    'Tis the season for publications and websites to let us know whether we should feel good about where we live. And U.S. News & World Report's just-released roster should give those who reside in Boulder and Denver, as well as Coloradans in general, a warm glow. The outlet's "150 Best Places to Live in the U.S. in 2020-21" ranks Boulder first and Denver second — and as a bonus, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins finish in fourth and fifth place, respectively. The only other city to squeeze into the top five is Austin, Texas, with the six-through-ten slots occupied by Charlotte, North Carolina; Des Moines, Iowa; Fayetteville, Arkansas; Portland, Oregon, and San Francisco, California. The many lists of this sort seldom agree with each other. For example, Money magazine recently dubbed Parker the second-best place to live in the country and ranked Broomfield eighteenth — yet neither of these communities...
    (CNN)The Covid-19 crisis not only delivered an unprecedented shock to the world economy. It also underscored the scale of the climate challenge we face: Even in the current deep recession, global carbon emissions remain unsustainable. Fatih BirolMariano GrossiIf the world is to meet energy security and climate goals, clean energy must be at the core of post-Covid-19 economic recovery efforts. Strong growth in wind and solar energy and in the use of electric cars gives us grounds for hope, as does the promise of emerging technologies like hydrogen and carbon capture. But the scale of the challenge means we cannot afford to exclude any available technologies, including nuclear power — the world's second-largest source of low-carbon electricity after hydropower.The power sector is the key to the clean energy transition. It is the single largest source of global emissions because most electricity is generated from fossil fuels. By significantly expanding...

But back in the early 90s, the concept was completely untapped, until powerhouse producer Mark Burnett stepped onto the scene. Burnett’s most famous show and the one that many say launched the new wave of television was the ever-popular competition series “Survivor,” but before castaways even stepped foot on an island, Burnett had another competition show, which is probably even more intense. “Eco-Challenge” premiered in 1994, and the great race took contestants around the world on multi-day adventures to test both their teamwork and their will. The show lasted a few seasons before calling it quits, but two years ago Burnett along with Showrunner and Executive Producer Lisa Hennessy, who was also there from the beginning, decided...

    As “The Challenge” wraps up its 35th season (“Total Madness”), what better time to break down the best cast members in the history of MTV’s hit reality show? Much like NBA fans debate Jordan vs. LeBron or football fans argue over Brady vs. Manning, Challenge fans will go at it over whether Johnny Bananas or CT as the best male competitor of all time, as well as which female stands out among the rest. Before we get into who we picked, a few notes on our criteria. We didn’t simply go by the numbers, as the Challenge has majorly evolved during its 35 seasons. It started as more of a reality show than a competition show — so much so that Belou Den Tex brought her infant child with her on “Battle of the Seasons 1”  and Gladys Sanabria showed up to “Battle of the Sexes 1” while pregnant. It was truly a simpler time. (Update: Melissa...
    Iain Duncan Smith, the former leader of the Conservative Party, has called for an urgent “alliance of the free world” to stand up to China’s authoritarian regime. The Brexiteer and chairman of the Sino-sceptic Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China said that the West must unite in its condemnation of China, calling the communist nation “a far greater threat” than Russia. Writing in The Telegraph on Tuesday, Mr Duncan Smith warned that the threat posed by China has increased in recent months — Hong Kong security laws; the oppression of Uighur and Falun Gong minorities; expansionism in the South China Sea and threats against Taiwan — making the need for an alliance against the “totalitarian regime” more urgent. “While the UK has begun to toughen its position, government after government has in effect kow-towed apologetically. A picture of the Chinese regime, all-powerful at home and aggressive abroad, is enough to leave Western governments fearful...
