GAZA CITY — A Palestinian militant was killed in an Israeli airstrike Monday as he attempted to launch rockets at Israel from the northern Gaza Strip, authorities said.

That’s whyLinkedIn asked over 90 leaders across a variety of industries to share the best advice they’ve ever received and continue using to this day.
Many recalled something that their parents, teachers, or career mentors taught them that has never left their hearts and minds.
These bits of wisdom inspired them to stay focused, compassionate, and driven, and continue to motivate them.

Chopra, the renowned leadership guru, adopted a new worldview from psychiatrist Dr. Dan Siegel. Siegel saw the brain as a tool that needs daily upkeep, and prescribed a “healthy mind platter” of sleep time, physical time, focus time, time in (self-reflection), down time, play time, and most importantly connecting time.

Zehner, CEO of Women Moving Millions, received her favorite piece of advice not from a person but a system: Goldman Sachs’ partner selection process. Its main message was that you don’t choose to manage up or down, but rather build relationships in all directions. To Zehner, this means dedicating time and energy not just to the higher-ups, but to temporary interns, people from other departments, and clients that initially said “no.”

For journalists, few things are as sad as witnessing the death of a newspaper. In recent years, the tabloid France Soir and the economic daily La Tribune perished. The communist newspaper LHumanit is on its last legs. But those losses do not compare to the death foretold of Libration .
Founded 41 years ago by Jean-Paul Sartre and Serge July, in the wake of the May 1968 revolution, Libration occupies a unique position in the history of French newspapers, as the only daily founded in the second half of the 20th century that survived.
Libration was very left-wing, but at the same time liberal and libertarian, says Patrick Eveno, professor of media history at the Sorbonne. It was the newspaper of the baby boom generation, very innovative in its relationship with readers, with clever, sometimes shocking headlines, original layouts and photos. Its a newspaper that had a soul, that was a great human and intellectual adventure.
In 2006, Edouard de Rothschild, a scion of the banking family whose main interest is horse racing, became the principal shareholder of Lib , as it is still affectionately known. Rothschild evicted the leftist founding director, July.
Since the arrival of Rothschild and then Bruno Ledoux as the main shareholders, no one has embodied the newspaper. Theres no one to give it an editorial line, says Eveno. Its like an old oceanliner, drifting. It keeps doing what it knew how to do, but the shareholders wont invest enough to relaunch it, and editors havent had the oomph it would take to convince them.
Three years ago, shareholders appointed Nicolas Demorand, a star radio presenter who was compared to the young Orson Welles, to be director of Lib . Demorand had no newspaper experience, and was not used to team work. On his rare appearances at morning conferences, he focused on the screen of his smart phone.
Staff punished Demorand with four votes of no confidence in three years, including a motion for his departure last November, approved by 89.9 per cent of employees. Someone pushed chewing gum into the lock of his office door, to prevent him entering.
Demorand finally resigned on February 13th. I hope with all my heart that my departure will facilitate the dialogue which must be re-established to pull the newspaper out of crisis, he wrote in a farewell email to staff.
No money But management and journalists remain at daggers drawn, and theres no money to pay salaries next month. Ledoux, the bte noire of Lib journalists, has appealed to the French finance ministry for a loan, and solicited a symbolic contribution from shareholders to keep the newspaper afloat. It will be a terrible blow to Franois Hollandes administration if Frances main left-wing paper goes bankrupt under socialist rule.

But staunch Obama allies like Beau Biden of Delawareyes, that Bidenas well as Lisa Madigan of Illinois and Eric Schneiderman of New York are ticked off. Not at CVS, but Obama. The issue is not tobacco sales, per se, but free trade.
And so begins our journey into the complex world of trade-fueled globalization, Obamas strained alliance with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the tattered remains of Obamas Asia Pivot, and legitimate questions about transparency and sovereignty surrounding fast-track trade authority and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Preventive Cardiologist Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum discusses the impact of CVS being the first US drug store chain to get out of the tobacco business.
First of all, the U.S. cigarette market grows smaller by the day, and tobacco companies see future profits and market share overseas. In that context, the CVS move is not as earth-shattering as the headlines or Obamas praise suggests. But the way trade deals influence tobacco sales in this country is a big deal, and thats why Obama has Biden, Madigan, and Schneiderman on his case.
The trio joined 39 other states attorneys general in a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman protesting emerging provisions in the Trans-Pacific trade pact that they fear would exempt U.S. tobacco companies from complying with state tobacco laws and regulations.
From the letter: Experience has shown that state and local laws and regulations may be challenged by tobacco companies that aggressively assert claims under bilateral and multilateral trade and investment agreements, either directly under investor-state provisions or indirectly by instigating and supporting actions by countries that are parties to such agreements.
The price tag for NATOs new building climbed $371 million, and taxpayers may have to foot the bill

At a time when Canada is backing out of key NATO surveillance programs to focus on internal defence spending, it seems taxpayers may have to pony up much more than expected toward the construction of a new home for the alliance. Much to the chagrin of NATOs 28 member countries, the construction consortium responsible for the new $1.6-billion headquarters in Brussels has requested an additional $371 million, and 10 more months, to complete the project.
Oana Lungescu, a spokesperson for NATO, calls the consortiums request for additional funds part of a hard commercial negotiation that is currently under review. But its already proven to be an embarrassment for the alliance and, especially, for NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who championed the steel and glass structure as a symbol of a new, modern NATO. According to Der Spiegel magazine, Germanys ambassador to NATO, Martin Erdmann, said in a condential cable that the effect on NATOs image would be disastrous if NATO appeared to be incapable of punctually completing a construction project.
NATO members already had doubts about the project when the Royal BAM Group, based in the Netherlands, successfully bid $300 million less than what NATO had estimated for the project. The request for more money comes from unforeseen circumstances (including significantly higher security requirements), says Arno Pronk, a BAM spokesperson, adding there is no backup plan for the project if the funds dont come through. With the building 80 per cent finished, member states, including Canada, may have no choice but to pay up.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s mere mention (or interpreted mention) of the ‘boycott, divestment, and sanctions’ (or BDS) campaign targeting the continued occupation of the West Bank was enough to set off a barrage of angry responses from Israeli officials and lawmakers over the weekend, creating new diplomatic tensions as Kerry continues to push a U.S.-brokered peace accord between the Palestinian Authority and Israel.
US secretary of state John Kerry spoke about boycotts of Israel during an international security conference in Munich. His comments have led to a public spat with Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu . Photograph: Nicholas Kamm/AFP/Getty Images While speaking about the ongoing negotiations in Germany on Saturday, Kerry stated: “The risks are very high for Israel. People are talking about boycott. That will intensify in the case of failure. We all have a strong interest in this conflict resolution. Today’s status quo absolutely, to a certainty, I promise you 100%, cannot be maintained. It’s not sustainable. It’s illusionary. There’s a momentary prosperity, there’s a momentary peace.”
Mention of ‘boycotts’widely interpreted as meaning the international BDS movement which calls on companies, individuals and other parties to refuse to interact with Israeli entities that operate in the occupied territories and condemns what it sees as policies of apartheid by the Israeli governmentmet with swift rebuke by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli lawmakers.
For his part, Netanyahu called the international boycott movement both “immoral and unjust” and said: “No pressure will cause me to concede the vital interests of the State of Israel, especially the security of Israel’s citizens. For both of these reasons, threats to boycott the State of Israel will not achieve their goal.”
And according to the Associated Press:
Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz of Netanyahu’s Likud party said Israel can’t be expected “to conduct negotiations with a gun pointed to its head,” calling Kerry’s comments offensive.
Economics Minister Naftali Bennett, from the religious, pro-settler Jewish Home party, suggested Kerry was siding with Israel’s foes. “We expect our friends around the world to stand beside us, against anti-Semitic boycott efforts targeting Israel, and not for them to be their amplifier,” said Bennett, a fierce critic of the Kerry-led talks.
However, Avishai Braverman, a senior Israeli economist and member of the opposition Labor Party, said Israeli leaders should take Kerry’s warnings to heart.
“If Israel doesn’t move forward in the peace process, it would be very severe for the long-term economic future of the country,” said Braverman, a former World Bank economist.
Later, a statement from the State Department tried to recalibrate Kerry’s initial statement, saying that the secretary in no way supports the idea of the boycott and that his remarks were misinterpreted.

Actor Scarlett Johansson has quit her role as an ambassador for Oxfam, the charity said today, after she fell out with the group for endorsing an Israeli firm operating in the occupied West Bank.
The Hollywood star has become the public face for soda-maker SodaStream and is due to appear in an advert for the company that is set to air during the Super Bowl on Sunday. However, the multi-million dollar deal has caused a backlash amongst activists and humanitarian groups because SodaStreams largest factory is based in a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank.
The company employs both Palestinian and Israeli workers and says its plant offers a model of peaceful cooperation, but settlements are deemed illegal under international law and are condemned by Oxfam. After consultations with Johansson earlier in the week, the actor informed the charity that she would end her relationship with them.
Oxfam has accepted Scarlett Johanssons decision to step down, the group said in a statement. Ms. Johanssons role promoting the company SodaStream is incompatible with her role as an Oxfam Global Ambassador.
Oxfam believes that businesses, such as SodaStream that operate in settlements, further the ongoing poverty and denial of rights of the Palestinian communities that we work to support.
In a statement reported in the American media, Johanssons spokesman wrote that she and Oxfam have a fundamental difference of opinion in regards to the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement. International rights groups such as Oxfam discourage trade with Israeli firms located on land in the occupied West Bank.
The very existence of (Israeli settlements) amounts to a serious violation of international law, the New York-based Human Rights Watch said in a statement on Wednesday. It is impossible to ignore the Israeli system of unlawful discrimination, land confiscation, natural resource theft, and forced displacement of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, where SodaStream is located, said the group.
Johansson was named as an Oxfam ambassador in 2007 and has taken part in a number of its global campaigns.
