США <p>Соединённые Штаты Америки (США) (англ. United States of America, USA) — государство в Северной Америке. Площадь — 9,8 млн км² (3-е место в мире, уступая России и Канаде). Население — 315 млн человек (2013, оценка; 3-е место в мире). Столица — город Вашингтон. Административно страна делится на 50 штатов и федеральный округ Колумбия, в подчинении США также находится ряд островных территорий. Жителей США называют американцами, а к самим США применяется общее название Америка. В русском языке до середины XX века также было распространено наименование Северо-Американские Соединённые Штаты (САСШ).</p> <p>Соединённые Штаты Америки были <strong>образованы в 1776 году</strong> при объединении тринадцати британских колоний, объявивших о своей независимости. Война за независимость продолжалась до 1783 года и окончилась победой колонистов. В 1787 году была принята Конституция США, а в 1791 — Билль о правах, который существенно ограничил полномочия правительства в отношении граждан. <strong>В 1860-х</strong> годах противоречия между рабовладельческими южными и промышленными северными штатами привели к началу <strong>четырёхлетней гражданской войны</strong>. Победа северных штатов привела к повсеместному запрету рабства в США и восстановила страну после раскола, возникшего при объединении южных штатов в Конфедерацию и объявление ими независимости от США.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://so-l.ru/news/show/o_konservatizme_po_amerikanski">О консерватизме по-американски</a></strong></p> http://so-l.ru/tags/show/ssha Wed, 22 Nov 2017 08:46:33 +0300 <![CDATA[Гражданам и компаниям США запретили участвовать в ряде энергопроектов с Россией]]> США запретили физическим и юридическим лицам в своей юрисдикции вести дела с российскими компаниями в глубоководных, арктических и сланцевых энергетических проектах.

Москва, 31 октября - "Вести.Экономика". Американские власти оштрафовали корпорацию Exxon Mobil на $2,5 млн за вредные выбросы на 8 различных предприятиях и обязали потратить $300 млн на установку очистных фильтров и средств контроля за ними.

Регуляторы обвинили Exxon Mobil в нарушении закона "О чистом воздухе", отметив, что на 5 нефтехимических заводах в Техасе и 3 в Луизиане было зафиксировано 26 случаев промышленных выбросов "летучих органических соединений" и "токсичных загрязнителей воздуха".

Как отмечается в пресс-релизе Минюста США, обвинения в отношении Exxon Mobil были выдвинуты со стороны ведомства, а также Агентства по охране окружающей среды США и Управления по окружающей среды Луизианы.

В рамках урегулирования обвинений одну из крупнейших нефтегазовых корпораций мира обязали потратить "примерно $300 млн для установки средств контроля за вредными атмосферными выбросами".]]>

<![CDATA[On the Many Connotations of ‘Tribalism’]]>
A classic book on tribalism.

A few hours ago I posted an item arguing that today’s GOP leaders, notably Mitch McConnell in the Senate and Paul Ryan in the House, had essentially abdicated their constitutional responsibilities and were behaving in a “tribal” sense. By that I meant: whatever was good for their group, was Good, and whatever was bad for their group, was Bad—to the exclusion of any abstract standards of the good or bad of the polity as a whole.

“Tribalism” in this sense is a word I use frequently, to mean an in-group loyalty that I distinguish from the E pluribus unum American ideal. Every time I use the term, I at least half-think of  a wonderful book called Idols of the Tribe, by Harold Isaacs, which was about the power of group identity (and its good and bad ramifications).

A reader in the American West writes in to complain about my use of the term:

I wanted to talk to you about the use of ‘tribal’ as a term to mean thoughtlessly following the pack.

I am a newly retired school teacher in [the Southwest], where I have taught for many years primarily Native American students, Pueblo, Navajo etc. The use of tribal in the political white sense does not go over very well among Native folks for obvious reasons. It feels like a putdown of one of the last cultural distinctions that exemplifies tribal sovereignty.

I’m sure this is not your intention nor is it President Obama’s intention but I can tell you the vocabulary while hip is not appreciated among many of the hundreds of thousands Native Americans in New Mexico and Arizona and it does not help the young respect their own culture. If you want to secure those votes I would stop using the word tribal in a negative sense.

I wrote back to the reader thus:

The company said that it will make an offer for the acquisition upon completion of works council consultation.

The buyout will strengthen Novartis’ presence in cancer space by adding Advanced Accelerator’s RadioLigand Therapy (“RLT”), Lutathera, in its portfolio. The deal will also expand the company’s pipeline into RLT programs, which has significant sales potential for being an innovative approach to treating cancer.

Earlier in September, Lutathera was approved in the EU for treatment of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) in adults. It is also under review in the United States for the given indication with a response expected on Jan 26, 2018 from the FDA.

Shares of Novartis have underperformed the industry year to date. The stock has gained 13.5% compared with the industry’s 14.5% rally during the period.

 

Significantly, Novartis is actively pursuing deals in order to build a long-term portfolio. In the past few years, the company has been seen inking several licensing deals and targets to achieve more on the front in the future.

Earlier, in March 2015, Novartis had acquired certain oncology products and pipeline compounds from GlaxoSmithKline GSK. In exchange, it sold its non-influenza Vaccines business to Glaxo.

We remind investors that Novartis already has a strong oncology portfolio of drugs like Afinitor, Exjade, Jakavi, Zykadia, Tasigna, Jadenu and an improved formulation of Exjade. Also, the FDA recently approved its breakthrough gene transfer treatment, Kymriah suspension, for treating patients up to 25 years of age with B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (“ALL”) that is refractory or in second or later relapse. The approval of Kymriah is a major boost to Novartis, given its potential in the CAR T therapy space.

Security,

Extending the E-2D mission radius and time of station just helps the Advanced Hawkeye become an even more effective weapon.

The Northrop Grumman E-2D Advanced Hawkeye completed its first aerial refueling earlier this summer.

The new capability, which will be eventually be retrofitted onto the U.S. Navy’s entire E-2D fleet, will greatly increase the range and endurance of the Advanced Hawkeye. That is particularly important as the United States focuses more on the Asia-Pacific region, where the vast distances over the Pacific are increasingly forcing the navy to look for way to extend the reach of its carrier air wings.

“Passing fuel for the first time airborne is a significant milestone in the development of this critical technology for the E-2D, which increases the range and persistence of command and control the E-2D provides to U.S. and allied forces,” Capt. Keith Hash, E-2/C-2 Airborne Tactical Data Systems (PMA-231) program manager, said in a statement.

According to Northrop Grumman and the U.S. Navy, the first E-2D equipped with aerial refueling successfully received its first in-flight fuel transfer from a tanker aircraft on July 14. “During the four-hour flight, the pilots performed 10 dry plugs and two wet plugs, resulting in the successful transfer of more than 1,700 pounds of fuel from a U.S. Navy KC-130 Hercules to the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye,” reads a Northrop Grumman statement.

According to Northrop Grumman, there are two additional aircraft in the aerial refueling test program, which is part of U.S. Navy contract awarded to the company in 2013. All newly built E-2Ds will start to receive the aerial refueling systems modifications starting in 2018. Older aircraft already serving in the fleet will be retrofitted. The new system is set to become operational in 2020.

Security,

The CBO projects that the 2017 plan for nuclear forces would cost a total of $1.2 trillion from 2017 to 2046.

The United States is facing a $1.2 trillion bill through 2046 to modernize and sustain its nuclear arsenal according to a new report from the Congressional Budget Office.

“To continue to field a nuclear force roughly the same size as it is today, the United States plans to modernize virtually every element of that force over the coming decades,” reads a CBO summary of its report. “CBO estimates that the most recent detailed plans for nuclear forces, which were incorporated in the Obama Administration’s 2017 budget request, would cost $1.2 trillion in 2017 dollars over the 2017–2046 period: more than $800 billion to operate and sustain (that is, incrementally upgrade) nuclear forces and about $400 billion to modernize them.”

However, the current plan was put forth by the previous Obama Administration, the Trump Administration might revise that policy after it completes its Nuclear Posture Review. The Trump Administration might envision a more ambitious plan, which could raise costs.  Or it could lower costs if the Trump Administration adjusts its priorities.

“In its first few months, the Trump Administration began a new Nuclear Posture Review to determine a nuclear policy and force structure ‘appropriately tailored to deter 21st century threats,’” the CBO report states. “That review may recommend changing modernization plans and force sizes inherited from the Obama Administration to reflect the Trump Administration’s priorities for nuclear forces or to shift resources to address other defense priorities in the face of long-term budgetary pressures.”

The CBO projects that the 2017 plan for nuclear forces would cost a total of $1.2 trillion from 2017 to 2046.

  • $772 billion would be allocated for the operation, sustainment, and modernization of strategic nuclear delivery systems and weapons—the long-range aircraft, missiles, and submarines that launch nuclear weapons; the nuclear weapons they carry; and the nuclear reactors that power the submarines (see table below).

  • $25 billion would be allocated for the operation, sustainment, and modernization of tactical nuclear delivery systems—the aircraft capable of delivering nuclear weapons over shorter ranges—and the weapons they carry.
