Thom Shanker, The New York Times

Philip Stephens, Financial Times
Fixing the economy, withdrawing from Iraq, overtures to Iran, a plan for Afghanistan, a thaw with Moscow and a bargain with Beijing . . . I could go on. The issues on Barack Obama's agenda rush by like station names seen from a fast-moving train. This is a US president who wants to do more than walk and chew gum.

Government to Sell Nuclear Assets

BBC News
The government has announced that it is putting the commercial arm of the UK's Atomic Energy Agency, UKAEA Limited, up for sale.
