On Thursday, Januray 19th, I walked out of the White House for the last time, for at least the foreseeable future. The walls in my office have been bare all week and boxes have been stacked with notes from colleagues, books and photos from the ten years I have worked for Barack Obama. As I was driving my car out of the gate, it hit me that for the first time, in a long time, I am not officially a part of something bigger than myself.

To understand the president-elect, view him as an Independent not a Republican
As Donald Trump’s inauguration approaches, people around the world are struggling to understand the inhabitants of the newest Trump Tower, the one at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC.
To comprehend the novel scene, they should view Mr Trump as an independent, not as a Republican. Other celebrity billionaires have tried to compete with America’s political party duopoly; Mr. Trump succeeded by taking over the Republican nomination. As an independent, he is not bound by party ideologies or past positions. He has nominated a number of Democrats and cross-party financial contributors to top posts. His leadership will depend on preserving the bond, by tweet and in person, with his army of supporters.

We’ve discussed here the actions of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and his warnings to President Obama. I believe Duterte was concerned about a Hillary Clinton presidency and an even weaker America. Duterte needs a strong America that reasserts its respect and regard in the Pacific Rim and thwarts the advance of communist China. Also, Duterte still has a very ingrained problem with Islamic jihadism… a bomb was just found in a garbage can outside the U.S. embassy there. But that’s not all…

A battered but undeterred stay-at-home-mom stashing money into a cereal box to save enough to leave her abusive husband and protect her children. A man from Ethiopia who was not only brave enough to defy his community by opposing female genital mutilation (FGM), but who, after moving to the US, continues to call home to keep pressure on families to not cut their girls. These courageous individuals are among those with whom the AHA Foundation had the privilege to collaborate on leading trainings about honor violence over the past month.

China’s coastal wetlands sustain millions of migratory birds. But since 1950, about 60 percent of them have disappeared, converted for the expansion of industry, agriculture, and cities. China’s wetlands provide an estimated $30 billion a year in ecosystem services.
At Beidaihe Coastal Wetlands and Waterfowl Seminar 2016, Hank Paulson, chairman of the Paulson Institute and a lifelong conservationist, noted progress on preserving China’s endangered wetlands but called for urgent measures to stop the continuing “worrisome” loss. Paulson also announced the launch of a month-long awareness campaign of videos and blog posts on the Paulson Institute’s Wechat and website to raise awareness of the importance of wetlands and the migratory birds they sustain.
