He has famously threatened to slap a 35% tariff on Mexican imports and a 45% tariff on products from China, raising fears he could start a trade war. To start with, though, he will renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement. He also says he'll cut America's high corporate taxes, which have pushed big US firms to offshore a lot of their business from 35% to 15%.

David Graham Sweet | (Informed Comment) | Here on the “Left Coast” there’s much anguish & foreboding over the results of our recent election, and talk of “resistance.” I’m anguished too, but if you’ll forgive me, less pessimistic than ever about the future of our country. Here’s why. It’s not that the new President seems at all promising. He apparently is the very odd duck he’s been playing on television: bombastic, thin-skinned, impulsive. He’s a modern-day Robber Baron who tweets incessantly, thinks of most of us as “losers,” likes to fire people, name huge buildings after himself, and playpopulist.” It’s hard to see him as a statesman. His expressed values offend people; his declared intentions and appointments are alarming. So it’s galling to realize that while he’s President, we’re going to have to pay attention to whatever he does (if not to what he says!) most every day.

Excel’s Date & Time functions ease the workload for bookkeepers, project planners, HR departments, and other jobs where time is money. The four functions covered here—ISOWEEKNUM, WEEKNUM, WORKDAY, WORKDAY.INTL—are complicated, so we’ll walk you through detailed instructions and examples. Note: Each function is defined first, followed by the function’s arguments (the values that functions use to perform calculations), followed by the function’s syntax—how a formula is arranged, which includes the function’s name and its arguments. Remember: Arguments are always surrounded by parentheses, and individual arguments are separated by commas. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

So while some of you readers will be au fait with your OS at its very lowest level, most of us will be somewhere intermediate. We'll know our way around our OS in terms of the things we do with it, and while those things might be quite advanced we'll rely on our distribution packager to take care of the vast majority of the hard work. Linux distributions, at least the general purpose ones, have to be all things to all people. Which means that the way they work has to deliver acceptable performance to multiple use cases, from servers through desktops, portable, and even mobile devices. Those low-level power users we mentioned earlier can tweak their systems to release any extra performance, but the rest of us? We just have to put up with it. To help us, [Fabio Akita] has written an excellent piece on optimizing Linux for slow computers . By which he means optimising Linux for desktop use on yesterday's laptop that came with Windows XP or Vista, rather than on that ancient 486 in the cupboard.

That Becker's personal and professional life begin to show their wear and tear -- and the guys' reactions to and responses to the tumult around them -- it's a bonus to see what they'll do in the face of further adversity. Because the characters are so clear and complicated, the play's story shines even more. It's a wonder that the themes of the play -- urban renewal, class tensions, broken dreams, disappointing family members -- come through loud and clear on their own without a single pointed, knowing sentence aimed at outlining the themes. Wilson knew not to undermine the goal by spoon-feeding the audience anything, having them pay attention to what's happening behind the scenes as much as what's plainly in front of them. The play explores more than just what you see at face value. There's complexity not only in the characters themselves, but also in how and when they interact with one another.
