TOKYO/LONDON -- Japan, Britain and Italy are merging their next-generation jet fighter projects in a ground-breaking partnership spanning Europe and Asia that is Japan's first major industrial defence collaboration beyond the United States since World War Two. The deal, which Reuters reported in July, aims to put an advanced front-line fighter into operation by 2035 by combining the British-led Future Combat Air System project, also known as Tempest, with Japan's F-X programme in a venture called the Global Combat Air Programme (GCAP), the three countries said in a statement on Friday. Against the backdrop of Russia's war in Ukraine and intensifying Chinese military activity around Japan and Taiwan, the agreement may help Japan counter the growing military might of its bigger neighbour and give Britain a bigger security role in a region that is a key driver of global economic growth. "We are committed to upholding the rules-based, free and open international order, which is … [Read more...] about Japan, Britain and Italy to build joint jet fighter

This single colleague of mine is approaching 40, and so people have been telling her that she should have a child so she will have someone "to take care of her when she gets old." Having known her for more than a decade, I don't really understand why she chose to be single. But I have witnessed two stages in her life. When she was about to turn 30, her parents often urged her to get married. By the time she entered her 30s, her relatives also urged her to get married, but as her choices were getting more limited, their suggestion to "just get married" was just empty advice. My colleague once took a leave of absence to go back to her hometown for a few days. When she went back to work, she giggled and said that her parents had forced her to go back to meet a guy six years older than her, who was divorced. And now, 10 years later, her relatives and friends give some new advice: "It's okay to have children without a husband." In other words, they will persuade her to become a … [Read more...] about Why are women being pushed into becoming single moms?
BERLIN -- In its first year, Chancellor Olaf Scholz's government has driven the biggest overhaul of German policy since World War Two. The next year could be even tougher, further absorbing Berlin's bandwidth to Europe's detriment. Scholz, formerly the finance minister, came to power pledging continuity with the era of Angela Merkel who oversaw 16 years of prosperity and stability in Europe's largest economy, enabling her to take stewardship of the broader region. Russia's war in Ukraine instead cast a shadow over her legacy and forced him to focus on re-arming Germany, replacing the cheap Russian energy deliveries upon which it relied and accelerating a shift in foreign policy towards more strategy and less mercantilism. The "Zeitenwende" or epochal change of times, as Scholz dubbed it, has proven all the trickier given the heterogeneity of his government -- the first three-way coalition at national level in decades. His centre-left Social Democrats, the Greens and liberal … [Read more...] about Analysis: Germany’s government looks inward as challenges mount, allies fret
