It wasn’t a foregone conclusion that “Gone” would become a country chart-topper in July of 2021.

In their search for a new approach to arms control, Moscow and Washington are likely to soon encounter an old bugaboo: Russia's demand that the U.S. stop resisting limits on its missile defenses, which the Russians view as a long-term threat and the Americans see as a deterrent to war. It is likely to arise when U.S. and Russian officials open a “strategic stability” dialogue Wednesday in Geneva — talks meant to lay the groundwork for future arms control and to reduce the risk of nuclear war. The missile defense dispute has shot down past efforts to broaden the scope of arms control negotiations to include more than the traditional category of “strategic,” or long-range, nuclear missiles.

GE’s operations are showing signs of a turnaround. The industrial conglomerate on Tuesday said it saw unexpected positive cash flow in the latest quarter, and it now sees that growing to as much as $5 billion this year. Investors eye cash flow because they see it as a sign of the health of GE’s operations and its ability to repay debt. It gives General Electric the resources to invest in its businesses, return more money to shareholders, and buy back shares. A big cash generator for GE is its aviation business that had been hammered by the health crisis as airlines grounded aircraft. The company said that business is showing “early signs of a recovery.” That unit saw the biggest improvement in a quarter that saw all of GE’s industrial segments boost their profit margins. The company’s quarterly revenue rose 9%, and its adjusted profit whizzed past analysts’ estimates. GE shares rose in early trading Tuesday, adding to their nearly 20% gain this year.

South African Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus has rejected suggestions he interferes too much in the Springbok coaching setup and should rather allow new coach Jacques Nienaber to get on with the job. Former British & Irish Lions and England World Cup-winning coach Sir Clive Woodward wrote in a newspaper column after Saturday’s first test win for the Lions over South Africa in Cape Town that Erasmus should be suited up in the stands rather than coaching the players on the pitch in his new role as a "water carrier". “Confusion at the top and a lack of demarcation between the roles of director of rugby and South African national team coach (are) killing the Springboks,” he wrote.
