While Americans celebrated the birth of American democracy, Republican lawmakers cozied up to the Russians who are actively working to undermine it

The scene was celebratory. A band was playing songs from the band Chicago, as Republican Representatives of the United States Congress toasted cocktails to celebrate America’s Independence Day…in Russia.

came after a delegation of eight Republican lawmakers held meetings with Russian officials in an effort to “improve our relationship” with Russia – the foreign adversary who interfered in America’s 2016 election and is set to do so again in the midterms. The first congressional delegation since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014 consisted of Senators Richard Shelby (AL), Ron Johnson (WI), Steve Daines (MT), John Thune (SD), John Kennedy (LA), Jerry Moran (KS), John Hoeven (ND), and Representative Kay Granger (TX).The meetings were held in preparationof the July 16th Trump-Putin summit in Finland, which is just days after the NATO summit in Brussels.

According to NPR, they were welcomed to St. Petersberg by Governor Georgy Poltavchenko, a former KGB officer, and Putin ally. Then in Moscow, the Republicans notably met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Former Ambassador (now a member of Russia’s parliament) Sergey Kisylak, who met with multiple Trump campaign officials (including AG Jeff Sessions) during the 2016 campaign and spoke about sanctions relief with Michael Flynnduring the Trump transition. (Reminder: President Trump met with Lavrov and Kisylakin the Oval Office the day after he fired FBI Director James Comey, reportedly telling them“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job…I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”)

The meetings were reportedly conciliatory, with Senator Shelby telling Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodi, “I’m not here today to accuse Russia of this or that or so forth…I’m saying that we should all strive for a better relationship.”

Senator Kennedy claimed pressed Russia on various issues, but referred to them as “our friends.”

“I asked our friends in Russia not to interfere in our elections this year. I asked them to exit Ukraine and allow Ukraine to self-determine. I asked for the same thing in Crimea. I asked for their help in bringing peace to Syria. And I asked them not to allow Iran to gain a foothold in Syria.”

Russia appeared to have a different recollection. Rant’s Greg Fish translated some of the coverage. Russian state media said the delegation appeared to put a “weak foot forward.” Russian Commentator Igor Korotchenko, said of the delegation, “We have to talk to them from higher ground. They came here. That means they need us; we don’t need them.”

The frequency with which States are seeking access to both communications content and metadata is rising dramatically, without adequate scrutiny. 4 Communications metadata may create a profile of an individual's life, including medical conditions, political and religious viewpoints, associations, interactions and interests, disclosing as much detail as, or even greater detail than would be discernible from the content of communications. 5 Despite the vast potential for intrusion into an individual’s life and the chilling effect on political and other associations, laws, regulations activities, powers, or authorities often afford communications metadata a lower level of protection and do not place sufficient restrictions on how they can be subsequently used by States.

The Principles and the Preamble are holistic and self-referential – each principle and the preamble should be read and interpreted as one part of a larger framework that, taken together, accomplish a singular goal: ensuring that laws, policies, and practices related to Communications Surveillance adhere to international human rights laws and standards and adequately protect individual human rights such as privacy and freedom of expression. Thus, in order for States to actually meet their international human rights obligations in relation to Communications Surveillance, they must comply with each of the principles set out below.

These principles apply to surveillance conducted within a State or extraterritorially. The principles also apply regardless of the purpose for the surveillance – including enforcing law, protecting national security, gathering intelligence, or another governmental function. They also apply both to the State’s obligation to respect and fulfil individuals’ human rights, and also to the obligation to protect individuals’ human rights from abuse by non-State actors, including business enterprises. 6 Business enterprises bear responsibility for respecting individual privacy and other human rights, particularly given the key role they play in designing, developing, and disseminating technologies; enabling and providing communications; and in facilitating certain State surveillance activities. Nevertheless, these Principles articulate the duties and obligations of States when engaging in Communications Surveillance.

“Communications surveillance” in the modern environment encompasses the monitoring, intercepting, collecting, obtaining, analysing, using, preserving, retaining, interfering with, accessing or similar actions taken with regard to information that includes, reflects, arises from or is about a person’s communications in the past, present, or future.

“Communications” include activities, interactions, and transactions transmitted through electronic mediums, such as content of communications, the identity of the parties to the communications, location-tracking, information including IP addresses, the time and duration of communications, and identifiers of communication equipment used in communications.

When cancer returns after a period of remission, it is considered a recurrence.

A cancer recurrence happens because some cancer cells were left behind and eventually grow and become apparent. The cancer may come back to the same place as the original tumor or to another place in the body. Around 70 percent of patients diagnosed with ovarian cancer will have a recurrence. One of the factors in determining a patient’s risk of recurrence is the stage of the cancer at diagnosis:

Recurrent ovarian cancer is treatable but rarely curable. Women with recurrent ovarian cancer may have to undergo another surgery. Because many women with recurrent ovarian cancer receive chemotherapy for a prolonged period of time, sometimes continuously, the toxicities of therapy are a major factor in treatment decisions.

Treatment for Recurrence

The effectiveness and type of treatment for recurrent ovarian cancer depends on what kind of chemotherapy the patient received in the past, the side effects associated with previous treatments, the extent of the recurrent cancer and the length of time since the last treatment was finished called the “time to recurrence,” which researchers often call “progression-free survival.”

The “time to recurrence” is the amount of time between your response to a prior platinum-based chemotherapy and the time of the recurrence.

During treatment for recurrence, it is very important to have a continual dialogue with your doctor about the benefits of treatment, with respect to remission and survival, versus the risks of the side effects that hurt the quality of your life. If you do choose treatment in recurrence, there are several options based on your previous treatments.

Chemotherapy is used to stop the progression of cancer and prolong the patient’s survival. Sometimes, surgery is used to relieve symptoms, such as a blocked bowel caused by the recurrence. In select patients, surgery for debulking of cancer is also an option. It is important to stress again that you, in consultation with your doctor, should set realistic goals for what to expect from treatment. This may mean weighing the possible positive outcomes of a new treatment against the possible negative ones. At some point, a woman may decide that continuing treatment is unlikely to improve her health or survival. A woman must be certain that she is comfortable with her decision whatever it is.

Interviewing for a new job – especially one you really want – is always nerve-wracking. These days, it seems the entire process is more grueling than ever. In an annual review of the “ Top 25 Most Difficult Companies To Interview ”, Glassdoor.com reported that recently“…the average length of the entire interview process is increasing, from an average of 12 days to an average of 23 days.”

For executive and C-level positions, your preparation must go above and beyond the standard checklist of interview do’s and don’ts. We all know the basics – dress well, have good posture, research the company thoroughly, and ask good questions – but when you’re called back multiple times, how can you ensure that you continue to present the best version of yourself?

Know and Represent Your Personal Brand

During a lengthy interview process, you will stand apart from other candidates if you know who you are as a leader, and can convey that message succinctly, with confidence and humility. Recognizing your passions –and exhibiting proven success in those professional endeavors related to your passions –can differentiate you from others.

According to Nicki Gilmour, who coaches many executives via Evolved Employer, the consulting arm of theglasshammer.com, “It is a really useful exercise to ask yourself what parts of your current or last job excited you most? You will find that it is easy to talk about many actual examples of the work when you feel good about the work that you did.”

Additionally, the more senior the role for which you are interviewing, the more you may need to internalize a leadership identity, which research has shown to happen less frequently for women and is known as the Imposter syndrome . Gracia Martore, CEO of Gannett was once quoted , “In order to lead an organization, you have to be incredibly comfortable in your own skin and the only way to do that is to be confident in who you are.”

Talking the Talk

Executive search pioneer, Russell S. Reynolds, Jr., offered “10 Job Interview Tips from a CEO Headhunter” in a 2012 Fast Company article . Here, he explained reasons for particular types of interview questions and the often counter-intuitive responses that may actually be the best answers.

For example, he shared that, “If you can’t discuss a failure or mistake, the recruiter might conclude that you don’t possess the depth of experience necessary to do the job.” The best leaders take risks, and most leaders will tell you that their failures make them better leaders. When it comes to answering negative questions or discussing failures or weaknesses, Reynolds’ advice boils down to being honest yet brief – tell the truth, but don’t dwell on the negative.
