Egypt’s Minister of Finance Amr el-Garhy has mandated on Thursday Emad Samy Hussein to chair the Egyptian Tax Authority (ETA). Hussein will take over from Abdel Moneim El Sayed Mattar, who has been appointed as the general supervisor for the application of the recently-adopted valued-added tax law. Minister el-Garhy has also named Mohamed Abdel Sattar Ibrahim as the vice chairman for the tax authority. Ibrahim will be the first vice chairman ever in the Egyptian Tax Authority’s history.

As the first black female Republican and first Haitian-American elected to Congress from Utah, which is only about 1 percent black, Mia Love's ceiling-breaking streak has already started. Born in Brooklyn, New York, to Haitian immigrants, Love began her career serving on the city council of Saratoga Springs, Utah, before becoming its mayor in 2010. In that role, she helped the city transition from being an agricultural community to a residential one while its population grew by 1,700 percent over the course of a decade. Since she became a congresswoman in 2014, she has worked to limit federal government control, pushing for local governance of issues like education, health care and small-business regulation.
Wearing a camouflage cap over her headscarf, Miaad al-Jubbouri cuts an unusual figure among the hundreds of men fighting to retake a village from Islamic State in northern Iraq. The mother of five was the sole woman among a joint force of Iraqi army and tribal militias who attacked the village of Kanous on Wednesday - one of multiple fronts in a campaign to drive the insurgents from their remaining strongholds in Iraq. Like the men around her, Jubbouri said her motive for taking up arms was hatred of Islamic State, which overran large parts of the country more than two years ago, meting out brutal punishments and killing its opponents, including several of her cousins. But unlike them, her mere presence on the battlefield goes against the weight of tradition in a society where women are often confined to the home and seldom seen near the frontlines, except when fleeing.
