"I'm really striving to think about how best to ... empower women in the economy both domestically and across the globe." WATCH: Ivanka on empowering women Citing the U.S. as an example, Trump said the business climate for women entrepreneurs is "incredibly exciting," given that only 30 percent of private businesses are owned by women, despite representing half of the population. "There's a lot of wood to chop and we're not right there; we're not there yet," she said. Other attendees at the two-day summit of the world's leading economic powers include Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland and the Netherlands' Queen Maxima. Trump was invited to the summit by Merkel. The invitation prompted speculation among some commentators that it was a way to open a channel to President Trump after an awkward White House meeting last month with Merkel.

The front page of one daily newspaper, Berliner Zeitung, featured a photograph of Ivanka Trump under the headline “First Flusterin,” or “the first whisperer.” The story questioned whether the first daughter would push her father toward a moderate course or act as a “loyal accomplice.” And abroad as at home, the interest level in all things Trump is high. About 400 reporters were expected to cover the women’s conference at the Intercontinental Berlin, CNN reported. Merkel isnt the first world leader to try and influence the president through the family member he has made clear is one of his most trusted advisers. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in March invited Ivanka Trump to attend the Broadway show “Come From Away” with him, a play whose central theme is about embracing foreigners. And a White House official said Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s minister of foreign affairs, and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands have both reached out with requests for public events with Ivanka Trump.

There was a time when anyone involved with radio transmitting ham operators, CB'ers, scanner enthusiasts, or remote control model fans had a collection of crystals. Before frequency synthesis, because popular, this was the best way to set an accurate frequency. At one time, these were commonly available, and there were many places to order custom cut crystals. One of the best-known US manufacturers of quartz crystals still around is International Crystal Manufacturing (ICM). Well, that is, until now. ICM recently announced they were ceasing operations after 66 years. They expect to completely shut down by May. In a letter on their website , Royden Freeland Jr. (the founder's son), committed to fulfilling existing orders and possibly taking some new orders, raw materials permitting. The company started making products out of Freeland's father's garage in 1950.

Thai wildlife and customs officials have succeeded in uncovering operations trafficking pangolins, turtles, and tiger parts and bones for markets, especially in China. Kraisak Choonhavan, chairman of the non-government Freeland Foundation, monitoring wildlife trafficking, said the discovery of the jungle cats is set against the dangers and challenges of curbing trafficking and poaching. Kraisak said in recent years some 30 Thai wildlife rangers have been killed by poaching gangs who often have travelled from nearby countries. "In areas where we call animal sanctuaries along the border with Burma [Myanmar] and with Laos this is where we considered as the richest area for bio-diversification of fauna and flora," he told VOA. But the region is highly vulnerable to poaching gangs. "People do come in illegally to kill wild animals here. We have even found that companies in China would hire Cambodians, armed militias to come into Thailand and hunt animals and cut the [protected] wood redwood and other perfumed woods that sets high values in China itself," Kraisak said.

Guajardo and Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray were to hold talks with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland later on Tuesday. Freeland said earlier this month that Canada opposed the idea of the United States imposing new border tariffs and would respond to any such move.
