Michael Singh at The National Interest - 2 hours ago
*Michael Singh* *Politics, Middle East* [image: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a 2011 interview. Flickr/Israeli Embassy Washington] Trump's foreign-policy team should not contemplate any deal with Israel unless that deal clearly advances U.S. interests. Of all of President Donald Trump’s priorities in the Middle East—defeating ISIS, countering Iran, and rebuilding damaged alliances among them—none is as surprising as his zeal for pursuing an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement. The prevailing sentiment in Republican foreign-policy circles had been that President Obama ... more »

America's Real Pivot to Asia Needs to Be Energy

Varun Sivaram, Sagatom Saha at The National Interest - 2 hours ago
*Varun Sivaram, Sagatom Saha* *Economics, Asia* [image: Smokestack in city. Pixabay/Public domain] Now is an ideal time for Asian countries to increase their use of gas—and America is the perfect partner. President Trump wants to make America the world’s leading exporter of natural gas. But his administration’s strategy of slashing regulations and handing out permits cannot alone boost U.S. energy exports. That’s because demand for gas in the growing economies of Asia remains stagnant. Were that to change, China, India, Japan and Southeast Asian countries would offer lucrative n... more »

Veterans and service members on the job hunt. Office of Congressman Mike Quigley Military veterans have a higher unemployment rate than nonveterans, according to federal statistics. One reason may be that when veterans seek civilian jobs, they often face stereotypes from hiring managers.
