Expect a torrent of corporate press releases to be launched over the coming months. Expect, also, for them to be absent of meaning. But the current interest in trade is an opportunity for business to lead the debate on the global supply chain, not contribute to its denigration.

And it is important for the United States to stand up for the basic principle that big countries dont go around and invade and bully smaller countries. I’ve said before, I expect Russia and Ukraine to have a strong relationship. They are historically bound together in all sorts of cultural and social ways, but Ukraine is an independent country and this is a good example of the vital role that America has to continue to play, around the world, in preserving basic norms and values.” The post Obama’s final press conference: ‘Russian continues to occupy Ukrainian territory and meddleappeared first on KyivPost .

I wrote in the past that most of the country, about two-thirds, would reject Trump and vote against him. I was naive and wrong. I think that eventually, as Trump fails, many will fall off. Probably only that third of the country, like barnacles, will continue to support him. Most of the country cannot. I was wrong. Eventually I may end up being right, most of the country may reject Trump, but I was wildly wrong in the shorter-term. Donald Trump is an exceedingly dangerous individual now. No doubts. We all need to wake up. I will be wrong again. For sure. You too. But Putin is our enemy and Trump appears to be his lackey. We should all watch very closely. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

“Our message for startup teams was that if they want to launch, they can do it here in Ukraine, in a partnership with a large corporation,” said VDNH Tech’s Olena Kalibaba who managed the program. “Our goal was to have at least one project to start working with Kyivstar, but currently there are three of them are gearing up towards launch.” The startups working with the corporate are push notification service Gravitec, phone-based loyalty program inCust, and virtual travel platform Virbox. They will work with Kyivstar at a revenue share model. The other graduates will continue growing on their own, leveraging the experience they’ve gained. Partners in cloud Another Ukrainian corporate acceleration program is Microsoft’s IoT (Internet of Things) Lab. First seven startups graduated from there in October, and the second batch with 17 projects distributed between Kyiv, Odesa, and Kharkiv is already underway.

They voted to slam on the brakes. But if they’re ignored and the plan goes through, it will form a blueprint for an altered capital. London will lurch closer towards becoming a playground for speculators, a dormitory for professionals, and off-limits both to the working class and to public dissent. Continue reading...

Up to 30 people missing at hotel in Abruzzo ski resort after avalanche buries building following series of earthquakes Barely 24 hours earlier, the management of the hotel in the picturesque Italian ski resort of Farindola, three hours east of Rome, had tweeted: “A dream Tuesday ... The snow is giving us spectacular scenery!” But by Thursday afternoon authorities held out little hope of finding anyone left alive after an avalanche buried the three-storey building with its eight staff and 20 guests, including several children, inside.

We've heard a lot from our pros how healthcare benefit portability was key to enabling them to start their own businesses, and we will continue to advocate for it as part of whatever reforms are to come. It also seems likely that at some point over the coming years there will be some legislation (or rulings) that clarify the employee / contractor distinction. This is often in the news in regard to large labor platforms, but it's actually an issue that all of our small businesses face as well, so we look forward to more clarity on that front. We're digging deeper into these topics, and we'll continue to track how small business owners across the country are reacting to the moves the new administration makes. You can count on us to make sure that the voices of our pros are heard in these debates! This question originally appeared on Quora. - the knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Adding a sheen of legitimacy to his Presidency, Trump will soon begin to tweet uncontrollably from the @POTUS account. Recode shares the story: Starting Friday, @POTUS, the official Twitter account created by The White House and reserved for the sitting president, will change hands from Barack Obama’s team to Trump’s administration. Included in the exchange: @POTUS’s 13.6 million followers. That means that if you currently follow @POTUS under the Obama administration, you’ll continue to follow the account as it moves under Trump’s control. The stream of tweets will be wiped clean so Trump and his team can start fresh. Twitter will also automatically follow a new account for you — @POTUS44 — where Obama’s stream of tweets live. The same process will take place for a number of other high-profile accounts, like @FLOTUS (First Lady Michelle Obama) and @WhiteHouse.

An Aïssa Mandi own goal and a Naïm Sliti penalty gave Tunisia a deserved victory in this North African derby, leaving Algeria on the verge of an early exit from the tournament 6.00pm GMT After an even first half, Tunisia emerged the stronger for the second half and were in total control after Naïm Sliti’s penalty made it 2-0. Sofiane Hanni’s goal made the last few minutes edgy for Tunisia, but an Algeria equaliser would have been deeply unfair. Algeria are not out yet, but they will need to beat Senegal, and hope Zimbabwe overcome Tunisia, to stand any chance. On today’s evidence, that’s unlikely. All credit to Tunisia, who lacked star names, but delivered the superior team performance. Thanks for reading. Bye! 5.53pm GMT Khenissi almost breaks away, but he’s flagged offside. No matter – the final whistle blows, and Tunisia have deservedly won the game! Continue reading...
