Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan (L) and US president Donald Trum (R)US president Donald Trump warned Turkey on Sunday of economic devastation if it attacks Kurdish forces in the wake of the US troop pullout from Syria, while also urging the Kurds not to “provoke” Ankara.Trump took to Twitter to reveal some of his latest thoughts in the slow drip-drip of information being released by his administration after his shocking December announcement of the troop withdrawal.His top diplomat Mike Pompeo is on a whirlwind regional tour aimed at reassuring allies amid rising tensions between the US and Turkey over the fate of Washington’s Syrian Kurdish allies in the fight against the Islamic State group.Pompeo also sought to reassure Washington’s Kurdish allies in the fight against IS, who fear the departure of American troops would allow Turkey to attack them.Turkey had reacted angrily to suggestions that Trump’s plan to withdraw troops was conditional on the safety of the US-backed Kurdish fighters, seen by the Turkish government as terrorists.”Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds,” Trump tweeted, while pushing for the creation of a 20-mile (30-kilometer) “safe zone.””Likewise, do not want the Kurds to provoke Turkey.”Trump did not detail who would create, enforce or pay for the safe zone, or where it would be located.US-led operations against IS in Syria have been spearheaded on the ground by the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).Ankara sees the backbone of that alliance, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), as a terrorist group linked to the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) which has fought a decades-long insurgency against the Turkish state.On Saturday, more than 600 people were evacuated from the remaining IS holdout in eastern Syria, a monitor said, as US-backed fighters prepare for a final assault on the area.”Starting the long overdue pullout from Syria while hitting the little remaining ISIS territorial caliphate hard, and from many directions. Will attack again from existing nearby base if it reforms,” Trump said.”Russia, Iran and Syria have been the biggest beneficiaries of the long term US policy of destroying ISIS in Syria – natural enemies. We also benefit but it is now time to bring our troops back home. Stop the ENDLESS WARS!”Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights head Rami Abdel Rahman said that several dozen jihadist fighters were among those evacuated to areas held by the Kurdish-Arab alliance.Abdel Rahman said some 16,000 people, including 760 IS fighters, have fled the area since the start of December, though this marked the first time the SDF and the coalition provided buses, suggesting a deal struck between the warring sides.Civilians still trappedThe United Nations said Friday that overall some 25,000 people have fled the violence over the last six months as the die-hard jihadists have battled to defend their dwindling bastions.An estimated 2,000 civilians remain trapped in the area around the town of Hajin, the United Nations said.The US-led coalition on Saturday fired over 20 missiles against jihadist positions, the Observatory said.The monitor said some 300 SDF combatants had deployed near the village of Sousa in preparations for a final assault.
Theresa MayPrime minister Theresa May faced the threat Tuesday of more ministerial resignations over her refusal to rule out the possibility of Britain crashing out of the European Union without a deal on 29 March.Three junior ministers penned a letter in the Daily Mail urging May to delay Brexit if she fails to win concessions from Brussels over the withdrawal terms.The warning comes after three more senior ministers published a similar letter over the weekend.”We implore the government to take that step this week,” the ministers said in Tuesday’s letter.”All of us were agreed that we couldn’t be part of a government that allowed the country to leave the EU without a deal,” one of the three, culture and media minister Margot James, told BBC radio.”As D-day approaches, I think we felt honour-bound to actually do something to help prevent such catastrophe.”The letter was also signed by business minister Richard Harrington and energy minister Claire Perry.”We must act immediately to ensure that we are not swept over the precipice on 29 March,” they wrote.”The way to do that is to seek a short extension to Article 50 to allow the negotiations to be completed, the legislation to pass and for the panic that businesses face to subside.”The Daily Mail said 23 Conservative “dissidents” secretly met on Monday to plot strategy.’Free debate’It said that as many as 15 ministers were “said to be ready to resign”.May’s effective number two David Lidington told BBC radio that the British leader would hold a “free debate” with her cabinet members before addressing parliament on Tuesday afternoon.But he refused to confirm multiple British newspaper reports saying May would propose a short Brexit date extension if her EU divorce deal fails to win parliamentary backing by 12 March.May has repeatedly pushed back another vote on her EU divorce deal after her first attempt to get it through parliament suffered a record defeat on 15 January.”I am not going to predict what the PM will say later today,” Lidington said.The rebel ministers are all backing a proposed parliamentary amendment that would force May to set a new Brexit date if she fails to get better terms on the disputed issue of the Irish border.”The colleagues you talk about are good colleagues, effective ministers, and I think it’s important that the Tory party remains a broad church,” Lidington said when asked if the ministers who backed the delay amendment could be dismissed.

3 min read For several years, digital innovator Maurice Freedman and his team had been developing a practice to help companies find an efficient way to transform their business, building a proven model for commercializing innovation. Here, Freedman breaks down the process and how it can help reshape and revitalize a company.What is “digital transformation”?”Most would say it’s ‘up-teching.’ That is, adding technology to an existing, broken way of doing business. But we have found that a shiny new app is not the answer. Technology alone is not transformative if processes are broken — it can actually be a distraction for the actual problem. Injecting technology often make matters worse, and comes at a great expense. Our digital transformation practice evaluates the whole process, from innovation through commercialization, to help companies build pathways to profit, using technology as an empowering tool. A tool is only as good as the teams using it.” Related: 5 Emerging Technologies for Rapid Digital TransformationWhat separates you from competitors? “First, real-world experience. Lots of bruises, some broken bones and a few glorious trophies. I’ve been lucky enough in my career to have been involved with many different industries: software, healthcare, consumer goods, military, media — some companies on the way up, and some that failed miserably. I learned the most from the failures. Failure teaches modesty, persistence and that the answer lies in the field, not in the lab. I’m on the ground, talking to customers, learning the market. When I’m not talking to customer and clients, I’m walking the startup aisles at tradeshows, learning as much as I can.”How do you choose the right technologies for a complex problem? “We start by lateraling — searching first for a solution, at least in part, from a completely different industry. Often, the problem may have been solved already, and at great cost. The challenge is focusing first on the mechanism of the problem, and less so on the granular details, and surface analogs. Most companies think their problems are unique or are so complex that is impossible to understand. But it’s not usually true. The supply chain for human tissue, for example, involves a massive amount of complex science, but as it turns out, an open source e-commerce platform can manage it perfectly. That’s thousands of hours of engineering, knowledge and testing under market pressure — inherited for free! It’s the same software I use to order socks.”Related: Five Tips To Grow Your Audience For Your Digital BusinessWhat’s the most important thing you’ve learned in all this? “With every new engagement, I have to put everything I think I know to the side and re-engage from scratch. Leave the assumed problems alone for a moment, and fully understand the customer experience. Everything else I do stems from that. Corporate tribal knowledge is often suspect, propagated myths about customers that they’ve never met. It’s like playing telephone with billions of dollars. You’ll never get the right answer purely from demographics, ethnographies, or a BI dashboard. Get with customers and show them products directly. Test, try and iterate in the marketplace. Put something as close to real as possible in their hands, as fast as you can. Watch where it fails, retool, and go again. And again. In the end, customer sentiment is not the most important thing. It’s the only thing.” Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals August 14, 2018 Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.
