In this talk, I will discuss some recent progress on toroidalization principles for klt singularities.  These toroidalizations allow us to prove theorems about the topology of klt singularities and about their minimal log discrepancies.  If time permits, I will also explain the relationship between these toroidalization principles and the termination of flips.
