Big German Bank, Key to Trump’s Finances, Faces New Scrutiny

It was not clear what information the bank might ultimately provide. Generally, the bank is seen as central to understanding Mr. Trump’s finances since it is the only major financial institution that continues to conduct sizable business with him. Deutsche Bank has also lent money to Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, and to his family real estate business.PhotoDonald J.

Who Is Emin Agalarov, the Russian Pop Star Behind the Donald Trump Jr. Meeting?

“Not every oligarch can say that he has developed himself into a genuine pop star,” said Boris Barabanov, a music critic for the Russian newspaper Kommersant. “Emin found his own repertoire that allowed him to get rid of the image of a singing billionaire.”Continue reading the main storyBut the billionaire part was not insubstantial.Privileged BeginningsBorn in Baku, Azerbaijan (then part of the Soviet Union) in 1979, Emin moved to Moscow with his family at the age of 4, according to his corporate biography. He attended school in Switzerland and New Jersey, where his interest in music blossomed.“I was riding a moped, listening to Elvis and trying to look like him,” Emin told The Chicago Tribune in a May interview. “The whole school made fun of me because I thought I was the new Russian Elvis in town.”After receiving a degree from Marymount Manhattan College in September 2001, Emin returned to Russia to work with his father, whose Crocus Group is known for developing shopping centers around Moscow. The senior Mr. Agalarov, one of Russia’s richest men, has close ties to President Vladimir V. […]

Scientists say that human-caused climate change rerouted a river.

Raj Karmani was a graduate student in computer science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign when his frequent trips to the neighborhood bagel store opened his eyes to food waste. Most of the unsold bagels usually went into the trash. Karmani’s obsession with efficiency got him thinking: What if there were an app that would sync up businesses with fresh, excess food and organizations in need of it? In 2013, he started Zero Percent, an online platform for food donation.

Here’s how it works: First, a food producer at a commercial kitchen, say a restaurant or bagel shop, opens an Uber-style app and drops in detailed data about the excess food: the amount, where to pick it up, when to pick it up, etc. Then, a delivery person, hired by Zero Percent, scoops up the food and drops it off at any number of youth groups, community centers, or nonprofits that have also signed up for the app and signaled a need.

Right now, Zero Percent operates in the Chicago area and in Urbana-Champaign (but plans to expand), and its biggest clients include the University of Illinois and the local Salvation Army. Karmani says Zero Percent has delivered more than 1,000 meals. As a well-educated and relatively well-off immigrant, the experience has been eye-opening for him. “Some of these kids have never seen strawberries.”

Burning coal for electricity continues its steep slide into history.

U.S. cities are packed with about 5 million medium-sized buildings — schools, churches, community centers, apartment buildings. Most use way more energy than they should. Many also have poor airflow and dirty, out-of-date heating and electrical systems. Those conditions contribute to high inner-city asthma rates and other health concerns.

“These buildings are actually making children sick,” says Donnel Baird, who grew up in such a place. His parents, immigrants from Guyana, raised their kids in a one-bedroom Brooklyn apartment, relying on a cooking stove for heat. Baird eventually moved to the South and then attended Duke University, before returning to New York as a community organizer in 2008.

In 2013, Baird launched BlocPower, which provides engineering and financial know-how to retrofit city buildings. The technical part is cool: Engineers survey structures with sensors and smartphone apps, figuring out the best ways to reduce energy use, like replacing oil boilers with solar hot water. But the financing is critical; BlocPower builds the case for each project and connects owners with lenders. It has already retrofitted more than 500 buildings in New York and is expanding into Chicago, Philadelphia, and Atlanta.

“The biggest way for us to reduce carbon emissions right now,” Baird says, “is efficiency.”
