); House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas); Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah). Outlook for the first 100 days: Trump advisers initially talked a big game on taxes, floating the idea that reform could be taken care of by spring. But it’s pretty clear now that Republicans wont be able to focus their full energies on tax reform until after their work is done on Obamacare — and the timeline there remains pretty cloudy. Obstacles: Trump and House GOP leaders started squabbling about perhaps the central plank in the House tax reform plan — a “border adjustabilityframework that taxes imports but exempts exports — before Trump even took the oath of office. As the old saying goes, there are always winners and losers in tax reform. So expect to hear more from potential losers if and when the administration and the Hill work out more of the tax reform details.

Together with our European Union and G7 partners, we’ve made it clear that sanctions should remain in place until Russia fully – I emphasize fully – implements its commitments under the Minsk Agreement; and that the Crimea-related sanctions against Russia must remain in place until Russia returns full control to the people of Ukraine. Although I know how – you find this difficult to keep faith with the Minsk process when the Russians refuse to meet their security commitments, it remains the only viable framework for resolving the conflict in the Donbas, restoring Ukrainian governance in the east, and returning control of the international border to Ukraine. It’s Ukraine’s best hope to move forward as a united country. But let me be perfectly clear, the political agreement cannot be implemented until Russian violence stops. Only after Russia and its proxies in the east fulfill their obligation to end the fighting and let the Donbas again enjoy peace and security can Ukraine be expected to fulfill its political commitments.

Smart locks are mostly a gamble: They promise the ability to unlock your home with only your smartphone, but it's hard to shake the feeling that they're somehow less secure than regular deadbolts. T he Kwikset Premis , however, packs all the intelligence you want in a door lock while still keeping your pad on lockdown. A few things brought me to installing this new, $229 smart lock in my home. First, I've long been a fan of Kwikset's SmartKey system, which lets homeowners re-key their own locks. The result: one key now opens my front, side, and garage door, meaning there are fewer keys taking up space on my keychain. Second, though I review all sorts of smart home gear, I prefer the (moody and often frustrating) Apple HomeKit framework because of the company's strong stance on security . And finally, I previously reviewed Kwikset's original smart lock , the Kevo, and knew in my heart the company could do better the next time around.

That plan was crafted at Wannsee. By this then, however, the meeting was nothing more than a technicality. The framework of genocide was already in place, and the conference served as a way to centralize the mechanism and ensure the smooth flow of deportations . By the end of the war in 1945, an estimated six million Jewsand millions of other victims such as Romanis, Freemasons, physically disabled people, Slavs, communists, homosexuals and otherslay dead in the wake of the genocide. Though the Wannsee Conference was an important moment in that deadly process, it was not the beginning.

How important are patents/©s for startup founders? originally appeared on Quora - the knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights . Answer by Raad Ahmed , CEO & Founder of LawTrades.com, on Quora : To a startup founder, patents and ©s can be super important, marginally relevant, or somewhere in between the two. So how do you determine the level of importance? More and more startups are creating an IP strategy , which can serve as a helpful framework for treating your various IP as your startup grows. Too often than not, startups spend exuberant amounts of money on stuff they don't necessarily need like a provisional patent application. That's why it's important for a startup founder to learn a little bit on their own to make an informed, business-savvy decision. Creating an IP strategy is particularly useful for bootstrapped startups that don't have the funds for an attorney to take care of it.

The same hatreds, the same promises A comparison of the rhetoric of Kaczyński and Trump shows that they both come from the same ideological framework. For example, on Jan. 10, Kaczyński was confronted with a loud protest during one of his speeches. Pointing to his opponents, he said "the day will come when Poland will once and for all free itself from all that, from the sickness that we see here. And no shouts, no screams, no sirens will change that. Poland will be victorious against its enemies, against the traitors." Both Trump and Kaczyński have appealed to explicit xenophobia. Both promise to return "greatness" to their country, even as their isolationism and extremism distance them from former allies . Both evoke memories of a lost era of job security and prosperity for industrial workers, and claim that they can bring those good days back.
