Interesting for those of us who follow the trajectories of execs at major tech companies. 
Baidu Inc. has appointed former Microsoft Corp. executive Qi Lu its group president and chief operating officer, granting the software industry veteran oversight over all aspects of the Chinese search giant’s business from sales to technology development.

US secretary of state outlines vision for peace between Israel and Palestine weeks ahead of Donald Trump's inauguration.

Something I don't understand:

U.S. intelligence agencies and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have spent months trying to substantiate explosive claims, compiled by a former Western intelligence official, that Russian government operatives engaged in an extensive conspiracy with advisers to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and employees of his company, people familiar with the matter said.

If China continues to threaten Taiwan, it would create decades of discord between the two sides of the Taiwan straits. That would actually be against the interests of everyone. 
"If Trump challenges 'one China' after becoming president, this would cross our red line."

Could be. It isn't clear that maintaining the status quo is any better in the long run, though.

Congressional Republicans are planning a massive overhaul of the nation's tax system, a heavy political lift that could ultimately affect families at every income level and businesses of every size.

Maybe you are right Chris, at this point we are both speculating (as well as the article). I had thought the carry interest was never taxed and capital gains were at the point of sale. This might hit the high speed traders, a good thing.

Story
Tagline
Sr. Staff Research Scientist at Google focusing on Machine Learning, HCI and Social Computing.
Introduction
Disclaimer: This is my personal G+ account, and represents mainly my own personal opinions, and does not represent Google in any official way.

Ed H. Chi is a Senior Staff Research Scientist at Google, working on the Google+ project.  Ed was the Area Manager and a Principal Scientist at Palo Alto Research Center's Augmented Social Cognition Group. He led the group in understanding how Web2.0 and Social Computing systems help groups of people to remember, think and reason. Ed completed his three degrees (B.S., M.S., and Ph.D.) in 6.5 years from University of Minnesota, and has been doing research on user interface software systems since 1993. He has been featured and quoted in the press, including the Economist, Time Magazine, LA Times, and the Associated Press.

With 20 patents and over 100 research articles, his most well-known past project is the study of Information Scent --- understanding how users navigate and understand the Web and information environments. Most recently, he leads a group of researchers at PARC to understand the underlying mechanisms in online social systems such as Wikipedia and social tagging sites. He has also worked on information visualization, computational molecular biology, ubicomp, and recommendation/search engines. He has won awards for both teaching and research. In his spare time, Ed is an avid Taekwondo martial artist, photographer, and snowboarder.

In 2012, Ed was the Technical Program Chair for ACM CHI2012 conference, the premier conference on Human-Computer Interaction research.
