1964 “The Pope spoke of change, but he knew full well that his 2,000-year-old church, though not immutable and unbending, submits reluctantly.” As Paul VI took a reformed stance on oral contraceptive pills, Newsweek wrote: “Not since the Copernicans suggested that the sun was the center of the planetary system has the Roman Catholic Church found itself on such a perilous collision course with a new body of knowledge.” Today, Pope Francis further opened the door to contraception in Zika-infected Latin America when he noted that “avoiding pregnancy is not an absolute evil” for mothers there. 1959 “The smooth tug of a rope, a thick spray of water, a quickening rush of air, and then you’re walking on water,” wrote Newsweek as nearly 5 million Americans crowded the coasts in the summer of…

“she would not be fearful”

@ramsberry1 WHILE THE WALLS OF TEXAS REPRESENTATIVE Sheila Jackson Lee’s large Washington, D.C., office are covered floor to ceiling with photographs, there is one that the 69-year-old Democrat is particularly proud of. It shows Jackson Lee shaking hands with Barbara Jordan, who, at the time of the photo, was a retired congresswoman teaching at the University of Texas. “That’s when she was mentoring me and encouraging me to run, and when [Texas Governor] Ann Richards ran for… re-election? Must have been re-election. I think it might have been 1994,” Jackson Lee recalls. “I was like a little pipsqueak that came to look up to her and to just be in her office, to just be in the space that she was in.” In 1972, Barbara Jordan became the first African American from Texas…

business as diplomacy

@CrisLeeMaza DANIEL BIRNBAUM, THE American-born CEO of the Israeli company SodaStream, is on a mission. But whether that mission is to make millions of dollars selling fizzy water makers to promote his personal brand of Zionism, or a combination of both, depends on whom you ask. SodaStream is navigating a complicated political landscape in which private companies are often called on to defend the state of Israel and engage in public diplomacy, providing a shield for some of the government’s most controversial policies. And Birnbaum, a public figure in Israel, wants to appeal to a liberal, humanitarian audience largely based overseas. In the middle of the Negev desert, just a little over 10 miles from the conflict-ridden Gaza Strip and next to the world’s largest Bedouin city, Birnbaum has opened a factory that…

power brokers

In THE SUMMER OF 2010, JEFF Immelt, then the CEO of General Electric, sat on one of the private planes at his disposal, headed to a conference of Italian business executives in Rome. He had just come from meetings in Shanghai and Beijing, and was in a sour mood. GE had spent years—and invested millions - in China, believing, like so many other Fortune 500 companies did, that it was the future: the largest and thus most important market in the world. The year before GE’s sales there had been $5.3 billion. Now Immelt was losing faith. Growth in the company’s key businesses, including power and medical imaging, had begun to slow from the levels GE expected. Government regulators, meanwhile, seemed increasingly hostile, holding up permits and increasing inspections of company…
