A newly negotiated attempt at getting recent clashes in Eastern Ukraine under control took effect overnight, and by all accounts is successful so far, with no reports of violation from any side, and hope that both sides will resume withdrawing heavy weapons . The ceasefire's terms are along the lines of the Minsk agreement reached two years ago. The deal ultimately aims to resolve the fighting in Eastern Ukraine with a series of government reforms increasing autonomy for locals and the holding of free local elections. Following through on the Minsk deal has been difficult, as Ukraine's far-right has angrily opposed any moves to give the ethnic Russian east improved autonomy, and the government has not followed through with promised reforms, demanding the eastern rebels completely disarm before any reforms happen. The Eastern Ukraine civil war centered on government attempts to clamp down on the ethnic Russians after a regime change ousted a Russian-backed government.

Much of seventh-floor staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were told today that their services were no longer needed. These staffers in particular are often the conduit between the secretary’s office to the country bureaus, where the regional expertise is centered. Inside the State Department, some officials fear that this is a politically-minded purge that cuts out much-needed expertise from the policy-making, rather than simply reorganizing the bureaucracy. There are clear signals being sent that many key foreign policy portfolios will be controlled directly by the White House, rather than through the professional diplomats. Not a single State Department official was included in the White House meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week. Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner – who has no regional expertise or diplomatic experience – had a greater role in the meeting than the Senate-confirmed secretary of State.

Part of the enduring appeal of Golden Girls is the way that a show that centered around senior citizens found a way to talk about contemporary issues. Perhaps nothing illustrates this as well as when the show talked about the AIDS epidemic in a historic episode titled 72 Hours that originally aired in 1990. Following Golden Girls Hulu debut on Monday, writer Jim Colucci shared an excerpt of his book Golden Girls Forever on Vulture , focusing on how the show opened up conversations about HIV and AIDS. The episode centered on Betty White's character, the delightfully spacey Rose, after she learns that the blood transfusion she recently received may have been exposed to blood containing HIV antibodies; after taking an AIDS test, Rose must wait an agonizing 72 hours for the test results. The message behind the episode was clear the AIDS epidemic had the potential to affect everyone, not just the LGBT community.

Stunning details have emerged about the fiery plane crash that took the life of screen legend Carole Lombard — a heartbreaking tragedy that stunned the nation in 1942 and haunted her husband, Clark Gable , until his death in 1960. A new book reveals the truth behind Clark's anguish: Carole had insisted on taking the fatal flight to rush home and save their troubled marriage! Wed in 1939, the pair were the super-couple of Hollywood's Golden Age. Carole was the Queen of Screwball and dashing Clark was riding high on Gone With the Wind — but their legendary love was plagued by his infidelity. When Gable and Lombard got together and spent three full years as bedmates before they married, she became a one-man woman, says Robert Matzen , author of Fireball: Carole Lombard and the Mystery of Flight 3. PHOTOS: ‘Roller Coaster Of Crazy!’ Bethenny Frankel & Carole Radziwill Reveal The Top 10 Secrets Of This Season’s ‘RHONY’ — What To Expect But Gable was self-centered and never felt it necessary to have self-discipline when it came to sex outside their relationship because he had a sense of what a catch he was.

Historically, work-life balance advice has all centered around keeping one's personal life and work life separate. As people have grown more stressed or burnt out at work, many attempt to implement stricter physical boundaries between the worlds but recent research suggests something else.

With the deep mentality differences separating the two camps, and so much at stake, a more thoughtful and comprehensive approach is in order. Back to Where it All Began Going back to the cradle of Western civilization, where much of humanity's moral, philosophical and religious evolution first began, offers clues as to how it could be possible to bring these opposite forces together under a shared purpose. Almost 4,000 years ago, what we now know as modern civilization, was centered in ancient Mesopotamia's Babylon. It is my view that what took place in that ancient society has more relevance to our day than we can imagine. Babylonian society enjoyed relative peace for a while, as is written in the words of the Bible, "The whole earth was of one language and of one speech" (Genesis, 11:1). But then came a time of great hostility and strife between the different tribes, political camps and ideologies, and the air was filled with the great threat of war.
