But he has recently discovered a new love for foreign affairs, making reform of the EU’s common foreign policy a main priority for the remainder of his term. This week he’ll get hands-on, attending the United Nations General Assembly week in New York. Council President Donald Tusk will address the General Assembly on the EU’s behalf on Thursday and is around all week; his schedule here.

But the group is not just here to talk; it is actively seeking solutions. These professionals will outline the major clinical, operational and regulatory challenges affecting hospitals in the US and Canada, and their requirements for innovation and technology to address them.

Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 11:00 p.m. UTC Sep 2, 2018 As we mourn the high-profile deaths of soul icon Aretha Franklin and Arizona Sen. John McCain this past week, it's not a bad time to put a spotlight on dreaded topics, such as end-of-life paperwork. No matter how loved or how respected, people die. And those who are left behind must gather the pieces. So where exactly is that life insurance policy? You might think no one could lose track of a life insurance policy. Think again. At one point, it was estimated that at least $10 billion in life insurance policies nationwide had gone unclaimed or unpaid. My own family ran up against this one when my father died in 2001. Many families don't know if someone took out a life insurance policy. Or they don't know what company holds the policy. People may move around from one state to another and lose the paperwork. Many times, frankly, people don't like to talk about … [Read more...] about Finding a lost life insurance policy: 3 ways to get started on your search
The political network created by the billionaire Koch brothers announced plans to support eight House Republicans on Thursday, pledging financial resources and activists to help re-elect several vulnerable congressmen deemed "principled" conservatives. The first wave of endorsements includes a handful of sometime-critics of President Trump, particularly on immigration and spending. The announcement comes a month after Mr. Trump assailed the Koch brothers as "a total joke in real Republican circles." Days earlier, network patriarch Charles Koch had condemned the increased government spending under the Republican president's leadership and Mr. Trump's push for import tariffs. The Koch brothers have also been critical of Mr. Trump's protectionist trade measures. In July, Tim Phillips, president of the Koch-backed group Americans for Prosperity, told CBSN that the aluminum and steel tariffs implemented by the Trump administration were "misguided." Despite clashes with the White House, the … [Read more...] about Koch-backed political group unveils House endorsements

The most Boris Johnson thing ever: Is booking a professional photographer to capture the moment you quit the Cabinet, just in time for the Telegraph splash. DRIVING THE DAY HOW IS IT ONLY TUESDAY? Theresa May’s new-look Cabinet meets in Downing Street this morning as questions swirl about her future as prime minister. No. 10 last night concluded a rapid-fire reshuffle, confirming the incendiary briefing to Playbook last week that a “full reshuffle plan” had been drawn up for the Chequers summit was no empty threat. Jeremy Hunt takes his place in one of the great offices of state (and is one step closer to No. 10); Matt Hancock and Dominic Raab have the big jobs they lusted after, and for some reason Jeremy Wright is now culture secretary. But the relative slickness of the Downing Street operation last night … [Read more...] about POLITICO London Playbook, presented by Airbus: New-look Cabinet meets — Merkel in town — Judge dread in D.C.
