Bloomberg View to Launch Tomorrow

Last we heard, Bloomberg View, Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to spread the Gospel Of Bloomberg after he leaves us as Mayor, was going to launch at the end of this month. Today Adweek cites a source claiming that the day of reckoning will actually be tomorrow, along with some other insights:

Bloomberg View’s first columns will come from Ron Klain, the former chief of staff to Vice Presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden; author William Cohan; and Tufts international politics professor Vali Nasr. Bloomberg News writers Margaret Carlson, William Pesek, Paul Kedrosky, and Amity Shlaes will also have columns out late Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

Prepare yourselves: The dawn of a new era in Bloomberg’s world is almost upon us. The question – as always – is if anyone will actually pay attention.

The Atlantic Celebrates Powerful Women With Multi-Part Discussion Series

This week, The Atlantic hosted its fourth Women of Washington conversation, a series showcasing interviews with women making an impact in the fields of global health care, energy, and technology. Our sister site, FishbowlDC, provided a preview of the event, but since it was so far-reaching in its scope and included so many influential women, we decided to share a little bit about it right here.

On Tuesday, Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlson sat down with Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson, president of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute [both pictured], to discuss STEM education and a secure American future. Event-goers included Elizabeth Baker Keffer, vice president of The Atlantic; Laura Adolfie, director of the STEM Development Office, United States Department of Defense; Frances Ashe-Goins, the acting director for the Office on Women’s Health, United States Department of Health and Human Services; Lorraine Cole, chief executive officer of the YWCA; Laurie Fenton-Ambrose, president and chief executive officer of the Lung Cancer Alliance; Leslie Fenwick, the dean of Howard University’s School of Education; Katrina Landis, BP Alternative Energy’s chief executive officer; Jenay Leach, an Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow at NASA Headquarters; Argelia Rodriguez, the president and chief executive officer for the DC College Access Program; and Patty Stonesifer of the Smithsonian’s Board of Regents.
