Kerry says trusting China on climate would be 'stupid and malpractice'

  Kerry says trusting China on climate would be 'stupid and malpractice' "It's not a matter of taking things by trust," Kerry said. "It would be stupid and malpractice if we just set up a sort of trust thing."The news: Kerry positioned China as an adversary and global economic competitor that requires not only United States pressure but a coordinated international effort to ensure the world can keep temperatures from rising 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

Kerry Washington, Catherine O’Hara, Lena Waithe and Kelly Clarkson are among the women who will be honored by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation at its 46th Annual Gracie Awards.

The event, which is set to take place Sept. 27 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles, honors women working in television, radio and digital media along with entertainment and news programs created by women that address timely topics and social issues.

Other 2021 honorees will include Hillary Rodham Clinton, DeDe McGuire, Danielle Monaro and Erin Andrews, along with NBC’s Today, CBS This Morning’s “Breonna Taylor: Her Life, Death and Legacy,” ABC’s black-ish, FX Networks’ Mrs. America and Disney+’s Taylor Swift documentary folklore: the long pond studio sessions.

We look forward to reconvening in person to recognize these incredible achievements and brave storytelling.”

Honorees are selected in national, local and student markets, including both commercial and non-commercial outlets. In lieu of the Gracie Awards Luncheon, which will no longer take place in person on June 26 in New York City, local and student award winners will be recognized virtually.

Opinion: America's fight for its soul

  Opinion: America's fight for its soul Walt Whitman once wrote, "Did you, too, O friend, suppose democracy was only for elections, for politics, and for a party name?" His words rang out in a familiar key this week, writes Jane Greenway Carr, as Americans raised alarms over widespread Republican efforts to make it harder to vote and easier to overturn elections. One of them was President Joe Biden, who in his Memorial Day address reached for Whitmanesque heights when he referred to democracy as "more than a form of government." He called it "a way of seeing the world" and the "soul of America.
