Maintaining an anti-Russian and anti-U.S. stance is good for the countries' respective militaries, and not having to be bothered by the need to modify historical textbooks, but business suffers in the process, and individuals often end up paying the price. Putin and Trump appear to be saying, let's do business together and make that the driving force of our bilateral relationship. We see little reason why this approach should not be given a chance to succeed. 70+ years of being bitter enemies has failed to serve the people or businesses of either country well. A de-escalation of cold war rhetoric and belligerent actions between the U.S. and Russia should lead to a more productive distribution of resources, enhanced trade, and a business-driven relationship between the two countries that could become one of the great surprise successes of 2017.

- Gold's average gains in inauguration years of 15% since 1974 - First year of new President frequently a time of increased uncertainties and risks - Gold rose 30% in the 12 months after Obama inauguration Massive political uncertainty President's conflict with the CIA - Strong dollar policy' to end as U.S. has $120 trillion plus debt - Trump inherits Bush and Obama's humongous debt Gold performs well in inauguration years (see table) and has seen average gains of 15% in inaugural years since the 1970s. Given the degree of uncertainty, divisiveness and conflict that Trump's election has already created both in America and internationally, it seems almost certain that the many risks as President Trump takes power will lead to higher gold prices. Besides the myriad of risks today and arguable the most uncertain geo-political situation since World War II or the height of the Cold War, gold investors and buyers can look to Presidential history, as gold has recorded has average gains of 15% in inaugural years since 1974.

There's still work to do regards the cold starts, but the old Merc proves a brilliant long-distance companion once thoroughly warmed-up This update should be beginning with a smug account of how the 190E now fires on the key in sub-zero temperatures, but as much as I'd love that to be the case, it isn't quite there. Indeed, there's more work to be done in this department. That's not to say there hasn't been some progress. I sourced a new coolant temperature sensor and swapped this myself - a very simple job - and the situation seems to improved slightly. Instead of multiple turns of the key before catching, it now (usually) catches on the first turn, but settles to a very lumpy idle before quickly warming through. So, it suggests the problem might be more than just the sensor, and that's exactly what I said to mechanic Jamie at Simply Automotive in Poole as he heaved open the 190E's bonnet, looked through outstretched arms at its puny 1.

25, even as high as $10.10. His confirmation hearing before the Senate HELP committee is slated for Feb. 2. Outlook for the first 100 days: Trump will likely focus first on the low-hanging fruit of tax cuts and deregulation, both of which will enjoy strong support from the GOP Congress. Trump aides have also been making the rounds on Capitol Hill to discuss maternity leave and child care proposals. Obstacles: Puzder could face difficulties getting confirmed as labor groups, women’s groups and Democrats hit him on a variety of fronts. Rumors swelled in mid-January that Puzder might be getting cold feet, but these quieted after Puzder tweeted that he looked forward to his confirmation. Trump’s anti-trade policies and even, to some extent, his anti-immigration policies dont go down well with many congressional Republicans.

“The first 200 days will really be much more than tweaks around the edges. There will be fundamentally large and robust debates that happen around real policy,” he said. On foreign policy, all over the world, allies are past holding their breaths and onto breathing into brown paper bags. The order that America’s helped enshrine, not just under Barack Obama’s 21 st century globalism or since the end of the Cold War or the end of World War II, but going all the way back to Woodrow Wilson, is certainly going to be different, but no one quite knows how. “There are not any assurances that this administration has made to foreign leaders about what the incoming administration will do,” Obama’s press secretary Josh Earnest said on Tuesday at his final White House briefing. Trump’s comments about NATO being obsolete, tilting toward Russia and reorienting priorities in Asia have the whole globe on edge.

An ad on social media is still an ad, and they are largely getting ignored. This is the crux of the change. Social media was never intended to be a free form of advertising, instead it was supposed to be used to maintain a massive network of relationships regardless of location. 2017 will see more companies embrace this philosophy and use their social media accounts to engage with their customers. The goal is not to sell, but to build a relationship. After a relationship, has been formed, subtle social selling is far more effective. Effective social selling turns cold prospects in loyal consumers. Parting Thoughts 2017 is positioned to be an explosive year in more ways than one. Regardless of one’s political beliefs, the economy shows ample potential for those who are willing to brave a new front and become a pioneer. By the end of 2017, the above trends will likely be the dominant methods of securing new business and maintaining relationships.

He was then doused with water and left in a freezing cold sell called the Salt Pit. This is followed by prison records of guards checking Rahman every night to see if he was still alive, and a single entry at the end concluding that he'd finally died.
