Georgia congresswoman says she has "full support" from Donald Trump

President Biden is easing the expectations of his large donors for the ambassador, indicating that he will not issue plum positions for several months, and hinting that he will nominate fewer positions than his predecessors. The big picture: The president supported the Democratic Party's efforts to strive for diversity when choosing a cabinet. Now lawmakers are putting pressure on him to extend it to his embassy, ​​which means that white male donors (the core of his fundraising base) will compete for fewer positions in the competition. CEOs, entrepreneurs, and high-level politicians become smarter and faster when they read the news. What we are listening to is: Biden is most likely to reward loyal politicians and former aides, and the race for former senators such as Claire McCaskill is held in Europe. *In terms of policymakers, former Biden aide Julianne Smith can be nominated as NATO ambassador. *Among the donors, Denise Bauer, Obama's ambassador to Belgium, is the top fundraiser. In the most coveted position, she may return to Europe, perhaps Paris. *Doug Hickey, another of Biden's major donors, is also interested in foreign positions. *Former HBO executive, James Costos, who served as Obama’s ambassador to Spain, expressed interest in the UK, but there are many others, including Comcast executive David · Cohen (David Cohen). Real estate investor Louis Frillman and Latino Victory Project president Nathalie Rayes told colleagues that they are interested in Madrid or another European position. Beijing has a reputation, and the White House is pleased that its special envoy has the political power to spot any potential problems. *If Biden appoints Disney Executive Chairman Robert Iger as his interest, he will tell Biden officials of his interest, which will break this situation. Biden's plan to visit the State Department on Monday, weather permitting, is a symbolic display of his quest to revitalize diplomacy. And emphasized the United States' commitment to allies and partners. He is also expected to make remarks on his foreign policy measures. *Although the president will definitely appoint some donors to the top positions, others are worried that they will be overthrown and eagerly demand a solution. *Although more than 800 people and couples have raised more than $100,000 for Biden’s presidential campaign, the more savvy “bundle labor” groups have raised much more than this amount, and have also reported to the Biden Victory Foundation Provided donations of up to $620,000. People familiar with the matter said that of the approximately 190 ambassadors, 30% are non-professional nominations, and the remaining 70% are professional diplomatic affairs. *According to the American Foreign Service Association, the ratio of 70:30 will match the traditional breakdown. *President Trump created a bias by nominating about 44% of appointed political ambassadors. * The 2018 Foreign Policy report stated that Trump’s nominees are also very different. 90% of his vacancies are for whites. Deeper: The political field has been roughly divided into three categories: policy experts, politicians and donors. *Biden expects to attract more funds from the first two categories, thereby reducing the number of positions for donors who wish to limit successful business careers through foreign positions. *Biden has a huge network of Belway friends and allies, but has never been so successful (or overly dependent) on money and celebrity courses in New York and California.

KYIV-Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told "axios on HBO" that he does not see China as a major geopolitical threat, even if he vowed to limit China's control over critical tasks. A position may also cause him to conflict with the Biden administration and Congress. Why it matters: Zelensky's remarks represent a break between the US national security leaders of the two main parties that are trying to rally allies to counter the threat of the Chinese Communist Party. Be smart: Sign up for free to get China’s most influential newsletter. US: Drive News: When asked about the emerging consensus in Washington that China is the world’s largest geopolitical threat, Zelensky said: “I I don’t agree with this, because in Ukraine, we don’t feel that way.” He said: “There is indeed such a cold war between China and the United States.” * “We know that the US business is represented in Ukraine, but at the same time, the Chinese business There are indeed representatives." * "I believe that regardless of nationality, nationality, people, business, a certain country, you will be respected, respect your people and borders, and they will appear in your country." Between the two sentences: Only the United States must play such a big role to push Zelensky away from China. Beijing suppressed Washington in vaccine diplomacy, which is a painful reality discussed by Zilensky in the "Axios on HBO" interview. Zelensky tried to obtain a higher quality American vaccine for his country. He promoted the help of Europeans. But considering his difficulty in obtaining a dose, he said he is willing to cooperate with Beijing to obtain a large amount of safe COVID vaccine for the Ukrainian people. *It is worth noting that the United States has not provided Ukraine with its high-quality vaccines, and has actually taken steps to make it difficult for Zelensky to obtain them. Behind the scenes: How to deal with the China issue is a growing pain point in U.S.-Ukraine relations. Trump administration officials privately expressed concern that China-which became Ukraine's largest trading partner in 2019-injected ample cash into China, instead embedding itself in key Ukrainian sectors including defense and telecommunications. *US officials worry that China will steal intelligence secrets and exert evil influence on allies that increasingly rely on Beijing. Yes, but: Senior U.S. government officials have been trying to persuade Ukraine to prevent China from buying the aero-engine Sich manufacturer for years, which is the number one jewel of the Ukrainian defense department. * Zelensky made it clear for the first time in an interview that he will not allow China or any other country to buy a controlling stake in Sich. * "Never," he said. "Not under me. I don't live here... [but] during my [time in office], absolutely not. The most important thing is that Russia’s focus on Ukraine is much closer. But when Russia annexed Croatia in 2014 China never condemned Russia’s actions when he was in Crimea, so although Zilensky may not list China as a threat, he knew that China could not be relied on in the Russia-Ukraine crisis and supported safe, smart, and sensible journalism. , Please sign up for Axios newsletter here.

The zealous Mr. Johnson told the Telegraph about his views on agriculture and explained: “This is not barbaric, but a return to the old farming methods. Rain-fed farming, herbivorous farming, and not even doing so. The value of carbon emissions from planting trees is higher. "It is absolutely necessary to change the British farming system, and as we withdraw from the European Union, this is an amazing way. I just agreed to be the international ambassador for the Conservative Environment Network. We will focus on climate change conferences. Of course, this is not an honorary task, and I will not ask for such a big salary!

According to current regulations, this is allowed to prevent animals from rampaging. He is urging his son to let the government issue the National Beaver Strategy. Allow them to move freely on the waterways of England. He told the Telegraph: rs is currently being shelved due to the coronavirus, but I need to think about how to do it. You have a fountain pen, a fountain pen covering a few acres and You can make a pond with some tap water. I need to be very careful because the pond may be dry or the whole place may be flooded, and they may be washed away by the river water, which will cause me trouble. Of course I do River, but they will not be released there until we formulate a national beaver policy!"

European diplomats speculated on Saturday that Ireland may have planned to pull Joe Biden into the border. Irish officials may threaten to use their government’s relationship with the US president to force the European Commission to reverse the situation. Dublin’s unwarned threat to the European Union’s borders triggered a tense appeal between Irish Taoist Minister Michael Martin and European Commission President Ursula von der Lein. Diplomats in Brussels believe that Dublin may have “picked up Biden’s bat phone” or reminded President von Delane’s attachment to Ireland and the peace process. Mr. Biden is of Irish descent and often warns Britain not to establish a hard border in Ireland. The committee’s move aroused anger in Dublin because the Irish government had previously convinced that any hard border on the island need not be one of the foundations of the final Brexit agreement.

The new research aims to provide telephone companies with tools to help curb robocalls. Peter Dazeley/The picture library research profile via Getty Images is a short excerpt of interesting academic works. It is a good idea that over 80% of robocalls come from fake numbers-answering or not answering these calls has no effect on the number of calls you will get. These are the two main findings of our 11-month unsolicited phone study from February 2019 to January 2020. To better understand how these unwelcome callers work, we monitored every call received from more than 66,000 phone lines at the Robocall Observatory at North Carolina State University in the Telephone Security Laboratory. During the research process, we received 1.48 million unsolicited calls. We answered some of these calls, while others made us ring. Contrary to popular belief, we found that answering calls has no effect on the number of automatic calls received by the phone number. Throughout the research process, the weekly automatic call volume remained unchanged. As part of the research, we also developed the first method to identify the robot call activity that led to a large number of such annoying, illegal and fraudulent robot calls. The main types of robot call activities are related to student loans, health insurance, Google business listings, general financial fraud and long-running social security scams. Through the use of these technologies, we have learned that, on average, more than 80% of calls in each robot call activity use fake or short-lived phone numbers to make calls they don't need. Criminals use these phone numbers to deceive their victims, making it more difficult to identify and prosecute illegal robot callers. We have also seen that some fraudulent automated telephone wiretapping activities caused government agencies to impersonate for many months without being discovered. They used messages in English and Mandarin and threatened victims with serious consequences. This information targets the disadvantaged, including immigrants and the elderly. Why important providers can use a time-consuming manual process (called backtracking) to determine the true source of the call. Today, too many robocalls cannot be used as a practical solution that goes back to every call. Our automated telephone campaign recognition technology is not only a powerful research tool. Service providers can also use it to identify large-scale robocalling operations. Using our method, the provider only needs to investigate a small number of calls for each robocalling event. By targeting sources of abuse of robocall, service providers can block or shut down these operations and protect their subscribers from fraud and illegal telemarketing. Vendors are deploying a new technology called STIR/SHAKEN, which may prevent robocallers from spoofing their phone numbers. Once deployed, it will simplify the backtracking of calls, but not for providers using older technologies. Call bots can also quickly adapt to new situations, so they can find a solution to STIR/SHAKEN. No one knows how automated callers interact with victims and how often they change their strategies. For example, more and more automated phones and crooks are using COVID-19 as a prerequisite to deceive people. What's the next step In the next few years, we will continue to study robocall. We will investigate whether STIR/SHAKEN reduces robot calls. We are also developing technology to better identify, understand, and assist providers and law enforcement targets in automated phone operations.
