As a political figure, David Beasley has been routinely called upon to communicate effectively and transparently to the public. As Governor and chairman of multiple government committees, Beasley honed his diplomatic skills and has continued to put them to use after leaving public office. Just a few months after the attacks on September 11, 2001, Beasley led an international economic conference in Tunisia that united American and Western experts on trade policy, foreign direct investment and information technology with Tunisian officials and business leaders. Additionally, over the past 15 years, Governor Beasley has led conferences and missions in some of the most conflict-affected areas of the world, including Kosovo, South Sudan, Sudan, Tunisia and Yemen.
Note the scales are a bit different, so that the habitable zones of the Sun and of HD 40307 line up better (remember, HD 40307g is actually closer to its star than Earth is to the Sun – an AU is the distance of the Earth to the Sun, so HD 40307 is about AU from its star). What makes me smile is that the new planet is actually better situated in its "Goldilocks Zone" than Earth is! That’s good news, actually: the orbit may be elliptical (the shape can’t be determined from the types of observations made) but still stay entirely in the star’s habitable zone.
