New York, USA
New York Times reporting: California’s Death Valley reached 130 degrees Farenheit (54.44 Celcius) and matched a previous record set less than a year ago, in August 2020 — it might be the highest temperature ever recorded on earth, barring a disputed 134-degree reading from 1913. The scorching temperatures from the West’s third heat wave of the summer, compounding already dry conditions from a drought deepened by climate change, fuelled quick-spreading wildfires and fears of power outages over the weekend. The sweltering conditions reached into places that rarely see triple digits.

Washington D.C., U.S.A
New York Times reporting: President-elect Joe Biden will propose far-reaching legislation Wednesday to give the 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally a chance to become citizens in as little as eight years, part of an ambitious and politically perilous attempt to undo the effects of President Donald Trump’s four-year assault on immigration. The president-elect is counting on support from religious and business groups who have long backed a more robust system of immigration making it more generous to current immigrants and people from other parts of the world.

New York, USA
New York Times reporting: Worldwide, COVID-19 has killed more than 1.5 million people, sickened millions more and short-circuited economies. Of all the industries reeling from its destructive impact, the travel industry was upended like no other.

New York, USA
New York Times reporting: The New York Times and other news media outlets have not anointed Biden the winner of the presidential election but have just done the math: the former vice president has won enough states by enough votes that Trump cannot overcome those deficits through legal challenges or recounts. Most states are set to certify their election results and declare winners by the end of November.

Canberra, Australia
Whoever claims victory in the US presidential contest this week, Washington’s grasp over Asia’s future is on the wane. The world’s confidence in US power and the moral authority it once commanded and the capacity to deploy it are much diminished. Even the most energetic and driven administration won’t restore it easily, soon or perhaps ever. ...The reality is that small and middle powers in Asia now have to play an unfamiliar leadership role. This ominous responsibility will remain long after the 46th President of the United States settles into the White House. By East Asia Forum editors.

New York, USA
New York Times reporting: From the droves of people voting by mail to the widespread protests for racial justice to the pandemic and worries about the electoral process itself, the 2020 US election cycle provides “a recipe for a lot of angst” on Election Day, Nov. 3 ...“We’re seeing a huge increase in the need for mental health services,” said Eva Escobedo, a therapist in Texas. “I think that people are way more polarized even within their families and essential groups than they ever have been before.” So how can you engage with friends and family members across the political divide on Election Day and afterward without succumbing to fights and finger-pointing?

New York Times: As the coronavirus continued to surge in many parts of the United States, officials and experts offered starkly different outlooks Sunday about what was to come and when the situation might improve.

New York, USA
Blaming manufacturing-job losses on low-wage foreign competition, or, increasingly, on automation has become a staple of populist politics in developed countries. Nowhere is this truer than in the United States, where President Donald Trump campaigned on the issue in 2016 and has since launched a trade war with China. But US workers have long faced another source of competition much closer to home: prison labour.

Cambridge-MA, USA
Last week, in a brazen rebuff to tough new United Nations sanctions, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s regime fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido – its second launch over Japan in less than three weeks. But, far from indicating that sanctions don’t work, Kim’s move shows that they still aren’t tough enough. ... it is the time to do whatever is needed to defuse nuclear tensions and protect the lives of those in the Kim regime’s crosshairs.
