Federer not keen on his kids following in footsteps 21.1.2018 The Tribune
Melbourne, January 21 Roger Federer says he’s a big believer in kids playing sport, but he’s not keen on his own children following in his footsteps. The Swiss great and wife Mirka had identical twins Myla Rose and Charlene Riva in 2009 and another set came along five years later, Leo and Lenny. They are occasionally seen watching their dad ply his trade, but after years travelling the world on the tennis tour, the 36-year-old would prefer not to have to do it all over again. “I mean, I hope they don’t just because we don’t need another 25 years on tour,” he said at the Australian Open when asked if he would encourage them to be professional players. But he added: “No, I’m just a supportive parent. I can’t tell which direction they’re going to go. “If there’s going to be anything in sports or somewhere in finance or business, I have no idea where they’re going to go. All I know is I’ll be incredibly supportive of them.”     He did reveal they already play tennis, not because he has been encouraging them, ...

US govt shutdown exposes ‘chronic flaws’: Chinese state media 21.1.2018 The Tribune
Beijing, January 21 China’s official news agency said in a commentary on Sunday that the shutdown of the US government exposed “chronic flaws” in the US political system. Funding for federal agencies ran out at midnight on Friday in Washington after lawmakers failed to agree on a stopgap funding bill. “What’s so ironic is that it came on the first anniversary of Donald Trump’s presidency on Saturday, a slap in the face for the leadership in Washington,” China’s Xinhua News Agency said in a commentary by Xinhua writer Liu Chang. The commentary said that the Trump administration had “backtracked” on policies supported by his predecessor, Barack Obama, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement and U.S. participation in the Paris climate agreement. “If there was any legacy that has survived the transfer of power, it was the spirit of non-cooperation across party lines,” the Xinhua commentary said. While Xinhua commentaries are not official statements, they offer a reflection of Beijing’s ...

US lawmakers in bid to end shutdown stalemate 21.1.2018 The Tribune
Washington, January 21 US lawmakers will launch a last-ditch bid on Saunday to end a budget impasse before hundreds of thousands of federal workers are forced to start the workweek at home with no pay. The impact of the shutdown that began at midnight Friday has been largely limited so far, closing sites like New York's Statue of Liberty, but the effect will be acute if the stalemate runs into Monday. Republicans and Democrats have traded bitter recriminations over who is to blame for the failure to pass a stopgap funding measure by a January 20 deadline, a year to the day since Donald Trump took office as US president. Highlighting the deep political polarisation, crowds estimated to number in the hundreds of thousands took to the streets of major US cities Saturday to march against the president and his policies. Top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell on Saturday set a key vote for a funding measure for 1:00 am (0600 GMT) Monday, with both houses of Congress set to reconvene Sunday. "I assure you we ...

Lockheed Martin proposes custom-built fighter jets to be made in India 21.1.2018
New Delhi: American aerospace and defence firm Lockheed Martin has proposed to manufacture custom-built F-16 fighter jets in India, which its officials say will give the Indian industry a unique opportunity to become part of the world's largest fighter aircraft ecosystem. "We plan to introduce two new words into the lexicon of international fighter aircraft manufacturing: 'India' and 'exclusive'," Vivek Lall, vice president, strategy and business development, at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics said in an interview. "India-specific state-of-the-art fighter production in India will be exclusive, something that has never before been presented by any other fighter aircraft manufacturer, past or present. There will also be a significant export market available for Indian-made fighters," he said. Vivek Lall, an Indian American who last year was instrumental in the decision of the Trump administration to sell top-of-the-line unarmed drones from General Atomics, in his ...
