The nuclear deal with Iran has potentially paved the way for trading and investment opportunities with the country. On paper, Iran’s allure for businesses is undeniable. But for all the talk of its promise after sanctions are lifted, the country has a long and well-earned reputation for being a difficult place for companies to operate. Beyond sanctions, new entrants face cultural, legal and bureaucratic challenges. Nevertheless, the announcement that world powers reached a nuclear deal with Iran delivered a powerful geopolitical jolt. Critics of the deal say that it enshrines Iran as a state on the verge of a nuclear weapon. Before signing off on the deal, however, Tehran would need to secure Ayatollah Khamenei’s approval—a task that previously has proved difficult.
Great Wall of Scrutiny
A Chinese state-owned company’s proposal to buy chip giant Micron Technology for $23 billion is the latest sign of the country’s growing ambition to push beyond gadgets and become a broad technology superpower. The proposed deal by Tsinghua Unigroup Ltd. is likely to face regulatory hurdles and deep skepticism about the offer price. And Micron can afford to be picky, writes our Heard on the Street writer Dan Gallagher. But the very act of targeting Micron, one of the world’s largest memory-chip makers, shows that China is determined to be a major player not just in assembling electronics, but in owning the key components that power them.
Don’t Bring It Home
The best way to listen to a partner’s work complaints; listen but don’t advise. Our Work & Family columnist Sue Shellenbarger writes about what happens when negative emotions from work spill into home life. Psychologists advise setting limits on time spent complaining; recommendations vary from 5 to 30 minutes. A listening spouse should speak up when feeling overwhelmed or frustrated, notes an expert. Some spouses find themselves in the awkward position of wanting to side with the boss who is angering their mate. But showing empathy doesn’t mean you agree or that you’re obligated to do anything different.
Many of our allies fear that focusing on proliferation is a huge distraction from what really matters, which is Iran’s regional behavior…The president’s bet is you can link the two once you have a nuclear agreement. But that’s a bet. It’s not a sure thing.
Jon Alterman, a former State Department official, now Middle East analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, on the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers to restrain Tehran’s nuclear program.

Responding to yesterday’s question about aging, Roy Farrow of Nevada wrote: “The formula is simple. Eat less, exercise more. Genes are genes, the balance is personal responsibility, a phrase not much in fashion, but timeless.” Delia Armendariz of Washington commented: “Whole foods, lots of water, plenty of sleep, and the ability to mitigate stress are the essentials to longevity. And having good genes is a bonus, too.” Patti L. Pearlberg weighed in from Georgia: “Wow, just yesterday I was pondering life and realized that when I was my son’s age (35) my mother was five years younger than I am right now (yes, I turn 60 in a few weeks). It seemed so odd because, like so many people, I don’t feel old, except in those moments where I forget how old I am and do crazy things like falling off the swing set while playing with my 3-year-old grandson. I guess life has a way of reminding us that regardless of how we see ourselves, we are aging; the real point is to take care of yourself and enjoy every minute, even if it hurts.”
