          Real estate: Investors bet on growth opportunity      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Guest Column: Rajesh Iyer, Chief Executive Officer DHFL Pramerica AMC

"Real Estate” is a subject close to the heart of every Indian. Over the last few quarters the outlook for real estate prices has been weak with most investors staying away from the asset class. However, some savvy money managers have been adding exposure to real estate stocks. So what is drawing the interest?

Real estate in India, like most other sectors, is in the initial stages of growth, being an unorganised business and fragmented among large number of players. The buyers

so far had very little voice. RERA, a regulation introduced in 2016, has started bringing in accountability, transparency and professionalism to the sector. One provision is, for example, that the builder has to put 70 per cent of the money in an escrow account and that this can be withdrawn only for construction spend. In fact, there are strict penalties in case rules are breached. Consumers can access project-related documents online. This finally puts consumers first like most other mature sectors. RERA and GST have resulted in bringing in two major structural changes:

A) transparency standards have just seen a big improvement

B) the change in cash flow structure is extremely capital intensive and will drive out fringe players

Employment generation

We should also not forget that real estate remains the second largest employment generator after agriculture and is expected to be a $180 bn market by 2020. Poor experience of the customer with fringe players and availability of low cost capital from private equity capital funds and sovereign wealth funds only to the players who are compliant with RERA and GST is likely to help industry consolidation. So going forward, like any other mature sector, three to five players will have the lion's share of the market.

Private equity and debt investment in real estate in the first quarter is estimated to be $2.6bn, highest for last eleven quarters. We believe it is the start of a mega trend and it will catch momentum as we see more clarity emerge around R.E.I.Ts’. Commercial real estate is recovering as rentals are moving up in most parts of the country. The unsold inventory in residential is slowly getting exhausted.

If we look at some of our neighbouring countries, even with much smaller population and land mass they have large companies in real estate with market cap equal to the sum total of market cap of the real estate sector in India. For e.g. Philippines has Ayala Land with MCap of US $11bn and SM Prime with MCap of US $20bn, Hong Kong with Swire Properties which has a MCap of US $23bn. The market cap of all real estate companies listed in India is approximately US$20bn.

Growth opportunity

Smart money is betting on this opportunity of growth over the next decade. We have been early movers to spot this trend and have participated through exposure in our PMS offerings. Equity markets are witnessing the tug of war between worsening macros and improving micros. Investors should use opportunities

provided by the market to add exposure to quality oriented portfolios. Our conviction on fixed income continues to be on the short term and accrual funds. Asset allocation remains the key.

Real estate: Investors bet on growth opportunity

          Alibaba tweaks a controversial legal structure      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

IF YOU want to study how the legal title to assets worth many billions of dollars changes hands in China, then peer carefully at page 116 of Alibaba’s new annual report. The text is dense and you may have to put a cold towel on your head and read it several times. The gist is that the Chinese internet giant is reforming its legal structure, which uses a fragile and ingenious device known as a variable interest entity (VIE). Alibaba’s attempt to make its VIEs safer is to be welcomed and will be watched closely by China’s richest entrepreneurs, many of whom use them, too.

VIEs are ubiquitous, especially among the country’s internet firms, which have a total market capitalisation of over $1trn. The structure dates back to the early 2000s, when Chinese technology companies wanted to tap global capital markets in New York and Hong Kong and to set up international holding companies domiciled outside of mainland China. Yet their sensitive internet assets, such as licences, may not be owned...


          Overstock.com Soars After Its Blockchain Sub Gets PE Investment At $1.5BN Valuation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Online retailer Overstock reported results which, unlike its much more famous and infinitely bigger online retailing peer Amazon, were nothing special: the company reported Q2 revenues of $483 million, generating a net loss for the quarter of $2.20 on a gross margin of 19% in the quarter.

But the company's earnings were not the reason why OSTK shares soared as much as 25% after hours: the reason was the surprising announcement by the company that Hong Kong-based private-equity firm GSR Capital had agreed to invest as much as $375 MM in exchange for equity in the retailer and, more importantly, its tZero blockchain subsidiary, which as a reminder capitalized on the cryptocurrency craze in late 2017 and concluded an Initial Coin Offering on December 18, 2017, almost to the day when Bitcoin hit an all time high of just under $20,000.

As Overstock announced in its press release, GSR agreed to:

  • i) buy $30MM in tZero tokens,
  • ii) buy up to 3.1MM shares of OSTK for $104 million (a 5% discount to the Aug. 1 closing price of $33.72),
  • iii) invest as much as $270MM for up to 18% of tZero’s equity at a whopping post-money valuation of $1.5 Billion.

And since Overstock's market cap as of Thursday's close was just over $1.1 billion, this means that with one term sheet, the company's tZero sub is suddenly worth more than the entire parent company. More importantly, the GSR transaction will boost the company's cash and equivalent holdings to over half a billion dollars.

Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne

Some more details from Byrne:

Having concluded its Security Token offering, tZERO has raised aggregate consideration of $134 million. This figured includes $30 million from repayment of intercompany debt between tZERO and Overstock. GSR has signed a repurchase agreement to acquire these tokens. As I will diagram in our earnings call, we have designed quite an ecosystem with a scale that matches the enormous opportunity in front of it. When GSR completes its planned investments, we should have over half-a-billion dollars. We believe this will provide ample capitalization with which to build a company that can upend global capital markets.

Back in December, when Overstock launched its tZero ICO, it said that it was hoping to raise at least $250 million - and as much as $500 million - "to build out a blockchain system that the firm said would allow it to create an exchange to trade blockchain-based assets, like ICOs." In the end it raised aggregated funds of just approximately $134 million, and today's transactions adds to that and enables CEO Patrick Byrne to pursue his Security Token ambitions.

As a result of the deal, OSTK stock has jumped and was trading as high as $46/share after hours.

Even with the surge however, the stock remains well below its highs hit in late 2017 and early 2018, when its share price more than doubled to a high of $86.90 in January, due to its blockchain investments rather than its online retailing activities, which have seen it categorised as a cryptocurrency "play."

Overstock has been one of the few retailers that has aggressively pursued cryptos as both a method of payment and as a means by which to grew the company with its own unique token. As we reported recently, following a burst of adoption of cryptos by various vendors, as the price of bitcoin has tumbled in 2018, so has the rate of adoption. Which is why Overstock's experiment with cryptos and tokens will be closely watched to determine if the digital currency has any chance of becoming useful in practice instead of just in theory.

          CPPIB and Caisse Expand Asian Logistics?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Benefits Canada reports, CPPIB invests in Korean logistics facilities:
The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board is partnering with a subsidiary of ESR, a pan-Asian logistics real estate platform, to invest about $653 million in Korean logistics facilities.

Within the investment vehicle, which will focus on building a portfolio of premier facilities in strategic areas, Seoul-based Kendall Square Asset Management will identify new assets for acquisition. In a news release, the CPPIB called South Korea the most connected country in the world and emphasized that such real estate assets are an attractive opportunity as the global embrace of e-commerce widens.

Initially, the venture will invest in a seed portfolio of six facilities, which are already managed by Kendall Square, with an aggregate gross floor area of 270,000 square metres. ESR first established its investment relationship with the CPPIB in 2015.

The move follows several other investments in logistics around the world by the CPPIB, including an acquisition, alongside the Alberta Investment Management Corp., of a U.S. industrial REIT, as well as investments in logistics in Brazil and Hong Kong in recent months.
CPPIB put out a press release, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and ESR Partner to Invest in Logistics Facilities in Korea:
Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) today announced that it has agreed to partner with ESR and its Seoul based subsidiary Kendall Square Asset Management (“Kendall Square”) to invest up to US$500 million in a newly established investment vehicle targeting modern logistics facilities in Korea. Kendall Square will identify new assets, support the acquisition and provide asset management services to the portfolio.

South Korea’s position as the most connected country in the world, and continuing embrace of e-commerce, provide an attractive opportunity. The portfolio will be comprised of Grade-A facilities in key locations servicing diverse tenant demands.

The vehicle will initially invest in a seed portfolio of six logistics facilities with an aggregate gross floor area of 270,000 sq. m. which are already managed by Kendall Square. The vehicle will target additional investments in core to value added assets to complete the investment commitments.

CPPIB and ESR have a well-established investment relationship, working together in the Korean logistics sector since 2015.
CPPIB and ESR do indeed have a well-established investment relationship as they established a joint venture platform with APG back in 2015 to invest $500 million in Korean logistics properties.

Last week, I went over AIMCo and CPPIB's $1 billion real estate venture investing in US logistics properties through the WPT Industrial Real Estate Investment Trust.

In that comment, I explained how the rise in e-commerce is driving demand for high quality logistics properties not only in the US but across the world.

It's also worth noting that Canada's two largest pension funds, the Caisse and CPPIB, have been very busy investing in Asian logistics properties.

For example, last year, CPPIB and Ivanhoé Cambridge, the Caisse's real estate subsidiary, invested in southeast Asian logistics facilities:
The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board is investing alongside Ivanhoé Cambridge with real estate logistics specialist LOGOS to develop and acquire modern logistics facilities in Singapore and Indonesia.

In Singapore, CPPIB will initially commit S$200 million for an approximate 48 per cent stake in LOGOS Singapore Logistics Venture, which will be seeded by two fully-leased existing multi-storey logistics warehouse facilities as well as one development opportunity.

In Indonesia, CPPIB will initially commit US$100 million in equity for an approximate 48 per cent stake in LOGOS Indonesia Logistics Venture, which has an identified strong pipeline of development opportunities in Greater Jakarta.

“The logistics sector in southeast Asia continues to grow as a result of the burgeoning middle class and the rise of e-commerce, and presents an excellent opportunity for a long-term investor like CPPIB,” said Jimmy Phua, managing director and head of real estate investments for Asia at the CPPIB.

“We are looking forward to making our first direct real estate investments in Singapore and Indonesia through well-established, like-minded partners like LOGOS and Ivanhoé Cambridge.”

CPPIB and Ivanhoé Cambridge will be equal partners in both joint ventures, with LOGOS, as the operating partner, holding the remaining stake in the ventures.

“Ivanhoé Cambridge welcomes CPPIB as our co-investment partner with LOGOS in Singapore and Indonesia,” said Rita-Rose Gagné, president of growth markets at Ivanhoé Cambridge. “Increasing our allocation reaffirms our view of the growth potential in southeast Asia and our confidence in LOGOS as a best-in-class logistics real estate specialist in Asia-Pacific.”
And last October, Ivanhoé Cambridge formed a partnership for investment in Indian logistics facilities:
La Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec’s real estate arm, Ivanhoé Cambridge, and QuadReal Property Group are investing up to US$800 million in a logistics venture in India.

The venture, a partnership between real estate logistics specialist LOGOS Group and Indian construction company Assetz Property Group, was first announced in August 2017. Focused on developing and owning modern logistics facilities in targeted cities across the country, it has identified opportunities in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Pune and the national capital region to meet an increasing demand.

Ivanhoé Cambridge, alongside the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, invested with LOGOS to develop and acquire modern logistics facilities in Singapore and Indonesia in March 2017.

“We are pleased to invest in the logistics space in India, a promising high-growth real estate sector,” said Rita Rose Gagné, president of growth markets at Ivanhoé Cambridge. “India is a strategic market for Ivanhoé Cambridge and we are continuing to grow our presence and our footprint there.”

The venture’s final closing is subject to regulatory approvals.
Rita Rose Gagné, president of growth markets at Ivanhoé Cambridge, has done a great job

She was featured in the Globe and Mail last year offering sound advice to young people, especially young women:
I find that young women work hard, but we have to remind them to ask for the promotion or to ask for the salary increase. I find that I had more opportunities to give that type of feedback to younger women than to young men, who seem to more naturally think about that.

The advice that I'd give to younger people is "no pain, no gain." If you want an extraordinary gain, you have to make an extraordinary effort. You need to absolutely work hard. Then you do have to establish, look for, or develop relationships that are meaningful.
I also like what she said about working around the world: "When you work around the world, you have to be open and non-judgmental. You have to take a step back. Sometimes they will want to talk a lot before getting into a given topic or negotiation, and things might be slower."

Anyway, logistics properties go hand in hand with the rise of e-commerce which is a long-term secular trend. Whether it's in the US, Canada, or Asia, it makes a lot of sense

In order to find and invest in high-quality logistics properties, you need the right partners, especially in India and Asia which are growth markets but have their own set of risks and complexities.

Still, there is no denying that emerging markets are where the growth is going to be in the future and Canadian pensions and other large institutional investors are positioning themselves for this growth through public and private investments

Investing in logistics properties is just another way of playing the rise of consumer demand in Asia. That's the easy part; finding the right partners to invest in logistics properties in the region is a lot more challenging and that's where the hard work takes place.

Below, online retail is growing across the globe. This trend is creating increasing demand for warehouses, resulting in lowering vacancies, higher rents and growing real estate values. And as consumers continue to expect same-day delivery of goods, e-commerce platforms are shifting their logistics strategies to focus on the last mile.

As high-conviction, thematic investors, Blackstone identified this trend early and deployed their capital globally – starting in the United States in 2010, then replicating their platform in Europe, and Asia.

There's a reason why Blackstone is the chosen partner for so many institutional investors. The firm's real estate fund is run by Jon Gray, easily one of the best real estate investors in the world (watch the Bloomberg clip below). Listen to Blackstone's Crown Prince, he's one sharp cookie.



          ...and the KMT marches on      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The KMT is having a competition to select a mascot for the party. The number one choice of netizens is this chicken.... (Hong Kong Free Press)
“Since the KMT mascot design competition stresses on freshness and energy, I picked a chicken as the design which symbolises youthful spirit,” the description for the proposed mascot said. “But I wanted to make him funnier and younger, so I decided to make it a person wearing a chicken costume, running with full spirit, to symbolise KMT leading Taiwan forward.”
Alas, the netizens count only 20% in the choice. But the desire to pick a mascot reflects the need of the KMT to appear youthful. It also reflects a cultural preference: just as in the US power is masked by politeness (Please exit to the left, Thank you for not littering), in Taiwan it is masked by cute. 

Up in Taipei KMT Mayoral candidate Ting Shou-chung decided this week that beating Ko wasn't difficult enough already, and decided to handicap himself with some silly remarks...
"因為我們與中國同文、同種、同血緣」,同時指出兩岸本來就是一家人,台灣若要與中國大陸雙方對抗根本沒有道理可言."
Essentially: since Taiwanese and Chinese have the same culture, race, and blood, and the people on both sides of the Strait are one family, Taiwanese fighting Chinese is irrational. He also said that if he were elected, he would not permit the sons and daughters of Taiwan to fight China for Taiwan independence.

Ting's bog-standard mainlander thinking shows exactly why Ma Ying-jeou got elected and why Ting probably won't. When Ma ran for office he gritted his teeth and said he was Taiwanese during the run up to each election. Though Ma stuck with the standard mainlander line that Taiwanese were Chinese, he conceded that they were a recognizable subculture. Ma attempted to find a space between the demands of the Church of the Mainlander Identity and the urgent need to get elected.

But Ting, mainlander to the core, insists on regurgitating the whole catechism. If any Deep Green DPPers were still giving him protest votes because they dislike Ko, they will probably reconsider. Ting more or less announced that he was of a different culture than most of the voters.

Smart move.

As I have noted, the KMT has once again filled the campaign slots with machine politicians and mainlanders. Mainlanders are running for the mayors of Taichung, Taipei, and Taoyuan, and mainlander elites are still running the party. The Taiwanization of the KMT still hasn't happened...

It's still your daddy's KMT...

          Vintage CARNELIAN Bead Orange Focal 17-18mm pkg1 rb122 by EurekaEureka      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

6.50 USD

Vintage carnelian semiprecious stone bead with amazing high polish and luster in a huge 17mm size, as you can see in the photographs!

This is high quality carnelian - carnelian beads that are 17-18 mm are very hard to find these days if at all - 14mm is usually about the largest mm size you can find! Most stone beads are being cut in India where the standards are not equal to those of Asia back in the 1970's -1980's. We purchased a handful of these in 1980 while in Hong Kong on a buying trip for the Smithsonian's mail order catalog. Because they are vintage they have small scratches and surface specks but these are minor and do not detract from the overall look of these beads.

Price is for one 17 mm bead and I 100% guarantee this bead to be natural stone and from the 1970's.

I sold many of these gem quality carnelian beads through the Smithsonian Institution's museum shop and mail order catalog during the 1980's and they were also featured in trunk shows at Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue during this same time period.

Please note: Agate, jasper, chalcedony, prase, sard, bloodstone, carnelian and many other natural gemstones are all the same material - quartz - crystallized in the form of a microscopic fibrous aggregate known as chalcedony . Natural staining yields many different colors. A gray chalcedony found in Brazil is porous and absorbs colored liquids such as aniline dyes; black dye produces so-called BLACK ONYX, and the orange or red product is called CARNELIAN. Other dye colors that are routinely used with chalcedony include blue, green, pink, white and yellow. Beads colored in this way are often sold in Hong Kong and Taiwan under the tradenames BLUE AGATE, GREEN AGATE, PINK AGATE, "WHITE JADE", "YELLOW JADE", etc. (the quotation marks surrounding a name are an effort to make the material seem rarer and more "distinguished" than it really is!). These tradenames are now used worldwide. Unless specifically told otherwise, all the above named beads sold in the marketplace should be assumed to be dyed chalcedony.
Be aware of what you are buying and what the seller tells you because the entire global marketplace seems to use these tradenames without any indication that although the material IS natural, the colors are produced by stable dyes.!

          How will China conquer Taiwan?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Many are concerned at China's more assertive military posture - whether it be outrageous territorial claims in the South China Sea, or incessant "salami slicing" of Indian territory along the Himalayan border - but there is one country above all others most at risk of Chinese military adventurism.

That country is Taiwan, even though Beijing would furiously reject the appellation of "country" being given to what it terms a"renegade province" of the People's Republic of China. China has two options - either to give up on reunifying Taiwan, or to make even more concrete plans to invade and conquer it. The brand of nationalism espoused by Xi makes the former virtually impossible.

In 1995-96, China launched missiles into waters off Taiwanese harbors in a mark of its displeasure, but there is a growing chance things will go much further next time. China officially spends twelve times more on its military than does Taiwan. Thisbalance of military power, which continues to tilt more heavily in Beijing's favor, is enough to make military action even more viable in Beijing's eyes.

Rapprochement with Taiwan under Ma Ying-jeou'sadministration (2008-16) went as far as it could. At that point the 23 million populace voted for the opposition party of Tsai Ing-wen, and that led to an immediate reversal of cordial relations. Nevertheless, Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen has declared, "We will not succumb to pressure from China...Taiwan is a sovereign, independent country."

Ian Easton, a research fellow at the Project 2049 Institute, a Virginia-based think tank, told ANI that Taiwan has always been central in People's Liberation Army (PLA) doctrine. "Xi Jinping has been much more focused on preparing to one day occupy the island. It's always been the party's and the PLA's main strategic direction ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union.It is the main war plan scenario. This is the main justification for the military build-up. This is the thing they train for, that they teach officers about in military academies and command schools."

ANI was very interested in Easton's thoughts on the most likely method China could use to attack Taiwan. He respondedhonestly, "I don't know that I have an answer to it, but it's something we have to ask ourselves. What's the most likely course of action and what are some of the black swans [the term "black swan" refers to an unpredictable event that deviates beyond what is normally expected] - the sort of things they could do but we would not anticipate for the element of surprise?"

Last year Easton published a thoroughly researched book called The Chinese Invasion Threat: Taiwan's Defense and American Strategy in Asia. In it he highlighted five possible scenarios that could lead to an invasion, although he warned the number of scenarios depended only on one's imagination.

He expressed, "My personal view, at least right now, is that the most likely course of action.is to seize Taiwanese-controlled islands. Taiwan controls over 100 islands - tiny islands in most cases. China could attempt to seize Itu Aba [Taiping Island] in the South China Sea. It's already surrounded on three sides by massive military or civil-military facilities constructed on the many islands."

Taiping is the largest natural island in the South China Sea, yet Taipei guards it with only coastguardsmen in an effort to avoid escalating militarism in the maritime region.

Easton continued, "Slightly more difficult but strategically tempting from China's side, I'd think, are the Pratas Islands [just 310km southeast of Hong Kong]." Another inviting target would be Taiwanese-controlled islands just off the coast of the mainland, such as Kinmen, which is just 2km from the Chinese coast, or Matsu. "There are a lot out there that China could look to pick off. In terms of an actual kinetic low-scale conflict scenario, I could certainly imagine them doing so." Easton said he could imagine China deliberately creating a crisis in the next few years in order to give an excuse to capture such islands.

Easton described yet another possible method of military coercion, that of a blockade. "China could do many things short of a massive international incident. They could start gradually and ramp it up, or they could go back and forth with different periods of intensity that are generally not lethal. They could use everything from naval capabilities to threats of naval capabilities.to cyberattacks and psychological warfare attacks. They can run the gamut and, then, if they want to, they can escalate. I think it should be an appealing option for the Chinese because they could have massive political effects on Taiwan,and they could potentially undermine the US position in the region without really doing anything that starts a conflict."

Indeed, this is precisely the methodology China has used in the South China Sea. It reclaimed reefs and built military bases togive de facto control over vast swathes of maritime region. The PLA Navy follows foreign warships traversing these waters and it interdicts fishermen from other countries. It has acted in small ways that have gradually built up into a major military presence, even though each individual step was rather innocuous at the time.

Therefore, the greatest danger is such "gray zone" operations,where China can use some ambiguous degree of force and hope to get away with it.

Easton suggested that in some respects an international "blockade" of Taiwan has already begun. Examples include ostracizing Taiwan within international organizations or pressuring foreign firms to list Taiwan as part of China on their websites. "It's really, really intensified in the past six months,"Easton observed.

Is it conceivable that China and the PLA would contemplate a full-blown invasion of Taiwan? It would be a formidable military task and the operation would be fraught with risk. For example, Easton lists only 14 possible landing beaches on the Taiwan coast and perhaps four weeks of permissive weather conditions in the notoriously rough Taiwan Strait. And these are just the geographic and climatic challenges, let alone a fairly well-equipped military who would be expected to put up stiff resistance.

The fact remains that, if China wants to control Taiwan, it mustput boots ashore in a huge amphibious operation. And yet to achieve a successful landing, the attack would have to be all-encompassing and massive. Such an invasion would thus represent the most serious scenario Taiwan could face against the PLA. Ironically, however, this would require morepreparations by the PLA, thus giving more warning to Taiwan's defenders.

Roger Cliff, a senior researcher at the Center for Naval Analyses, a US non-profit research organization, spoke recently at a meeting organized by the Global Taiwan Institute think tank, Cliff listed four scenarios in which Beijing could ostensibly use force against Taiwan. One is if Beijing thinks the USA will not intervene or it can be kept at arm's length until Taiwan collapses. Second is apathy or a lack of resolve on Taipei's part to resist China. Another is if China's leaders reach the conclusion that the USA will not intervene. A fourth scenario is if domestic pressure or internal crisis pushes Beijing into action, even at the cost of failure.

This all means that Taiwan must have the wherewithal and the determination to defend itself and hold out until the US war machine spools up and gets into action. It also requires the USA to make clear its intentions and obligations to military assist Taiwan, rather than hiding behind ambiguous or vague promises.

Yet, are some hyping up the possibility of a full Chinese invasion? Easton's considered opinion is, "No, it's not scaremongering - it's definitely possible. The question is, is it probable? And I think the answer is, no, it's not probable. Look at it and it would be so incredibly dangerous to everyone concerned, so that any logical or rational leader in China is going to say, 'We could do that, we could attempt it, but I'm not sure that we're going to succeed and it would be so dangerous that it isn't worth the risk.' That's how a rational leader or politburo could view it."

However, Easton pointed out problems relying on this line of thinking. The American warned, "There are two things that make a full-scale war much more likely over the coming ten years or so."

"One is that China's leadership may not be rational. "We don't know. If there was a crisis in China that we may or may not know about, like a coup attempt or some kind of disaster.Most authoritarian governments, especially communist-Leninist political organizations like theirs, sooner or later do things that we'd consider irrational."

The other problem is that Xi Jinping may not receive sageadvice from his inner circle. "The reason that he might not get good information is that he's become a dictator. He's purged so many of his top political rivals and so many of his top military generals, and in that kind of environment when there's purging going on, it's very, very brutal. There's an incredible amount of fear."

Regarding the Taiwan situation, for example, "If Xi asks the right questions about Taiwan, people could tell him what they think he wants to hear. He could then come to what he thinks are rational conclusions, and then make terrifying decisions based on that information." Easton is of the opinion that war becomes more likely the longer that Xi remains in power too.

Easton gave the example of the restructuring into theater commands as evidence that Taiwan is the number one priority. "The whole military reform program that we've seen since 2016, the public rhetoric, is that it's to build up a joint-capable PLA who wants to be able to conduct joint operations. But if you look at China's war plans, there's only one that requires joint operations - the invasion of Taiwan."

Operations along the mountainous Indian border, for example, would be firmly army-centric. "The point is, if you look at China's doctrinal writings, their military textbooks and theoretical writings, there's only one scenario where they envision they need a truly joint-capable military. So that suggests, at least to me, that now they're doing the military reform program to get ready for an invasion of Taiwan."

Significantly, the PLA's Eastern Theater Command, which faces Taiwan, was the only one not to have group armies cut during the reorganization. That particular command is also listed first in protocol order. In a rigid communist system where everything is linear and ordered, this is hugely symbolic. Previously, under the old Military Region structure, units in the north protectingagainst a potential Soviet land invasion were the most important. Now, units in the Eastern Theater Command get all the best equipment first since they have priority.

New weapons for the PLA are also determined by the Taiwan situation, and the need to fend off its US ally. It is precisely why such weapons as the DF-21D ballistic anti-ship missile were developed.

To date, China has failed to convince the Taiwanese people as a whole that joining the ranks of communist-led China will be good for them. Additionally, Taiwan has been able to witness Beijing's heavy-handed tactics in Hong Kong, where freedom of expression and political liberties are now being smothered.

Unable to make progress ideologically, China has resorted to heavy-handed measures in a wide-ranging campaign of coercion. However, its absurd bullying, which is ramping up to unprecedented levels, is backfiring even further. People in Taiwan and all around the world have had ample opportunity to see just how an authoritarian state truly behaves.(ANI)

          Christian heartland opens window into fight for China’s soul      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Associated Press

NANYANG, CHINA


The 62-year-old Chinese shopkeeper had waited nearly his entire adult life to see his dream of building a church come true — a brick house with a sunny courtyard and spacious hall with room for 200 believers.

But in March, about a dozen police officers and local officials suddenly showed up at the church on his property and made the frightened congregants disperse. They ordered that the cross, a painting of the Last Supper and Bible verse calligraphy be taken down. And they demanded that all services stop until each person along with the church itself was registered with the government, said the shopkeeper, Guo, who gave his last name only from fear of retribution.

Without warning, Guo and his neighbors in China’s Christian heartland province of Henan had found themselves on the front lines of an ambitious new effort by the officially atheist ruling Communist Party to dictate — and in some cases displace — the practice of faith in the country.

Under President Xi Jinping, China’s most powerful leader since Mao Zedong, believers are seeing their freedoms shrink dramatically even as the country undergoes a religious revival. Experts and activists say that as he consolidates his power, Xi is waging the most severe systematic suppression of Christianity in the country since religious freedom was written into the Chinese constitution in 1982.

The crackdown on Christianity is part of a broader push by Xi to “Sinicize” all the nation’s religions by infusing them with “Chinese characteristics” such as loyalty to the Communist Party. Over the last several months, local governments across the country have shut down hundreds of private Christian “house churches.” A statement last week from 47 in Beijing alone said they had faced “unprecedented” harassment since February.

A dozen Chinese Protestants interviewed by the Associated Press described gatherings that were raided, interrogations and surveillance, and one pastor said hundreds of his congregants were questioned individually about their faith. Like Guo, the majority requested that their names be partly or fully withheld because they feared punishment from authorities.




“Chinese leaders have always been suspicious of the political challenge or threat that Christianity poses to the Communist regime,” said Xi Lian, a scholar of Christianity in China at Duke University. “Under Xi, this fear of Western infiltration has intensified and gained a prominence that we haven’t seen for a long time.”

Officials once largely tolerated the unregistered Protestant house churches that sprang up independent of the official Christian Council, clamping down on some while allowing others to grow. But this year they have taken a tougher approach that relies partly on “thought reform” — a phrase for political indoctrination. Last November, Christian residents of a rural township in southeast Jiangxi province were persuaded to replace posters of the cross and Jesus Christ inside their homes with portraits of Xi, a local official said.

“Through our thought reform, they’ve voluntarily done it,” Qi Yan, a member of the township party committee, told the AP by phone. “The move is aimed at Christian families in poverty, and we educated them to believe in science and not in superstition, making them believe in the party.”

The poster campaign appears to symbolize what analysts see as the underlying force driving the change in the party’s approach to religion: the ascendance of Xi.

“Xi is a closet Maoist — he is very anxious about thought control,” said Willy Lam, a Chinese politics expert at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. “He definitely does not want people to be faithful members of the church, because then people would profess their allegiance to the church rather than to the party, or more exactly, to Xi himself.”

Various state and local officials declined repeated requests to comment. But in 2016, Xi explicitly warned against the perceived foreign threats tied to faith, telling a religion conference: “We must resolutely guard against overseas infiltrations via religious means.”

Those who resist pay the price. After Jin Mingri, a prominent pastor who leads Zion Church in Beijing, refused local authorities’ request to install surveillance cameras inside his house church, police individually questioned hundreds of members of the 1,500-person congregation, he said. The congregants faced veiled threats, Jin said, and many were asked to sign a pledge promising to leave Zion, which the government agents called illegal, politically incorrect and a cult. Some people lost their jobs or were evicted from rented apartments because police intimidated their bosses and landlords.

“A lot of our flock are terrified by the pressure that the government is putting on them,” he said. “It’s painful to think that in our own country’s capital, we must pay so dearly just to practice our faith.”

In Zhengzhou, Henan’s capital, all that is left of one house church is shattered glass, tangled wires and torn hymnbooks, strewn among the rubble of a knocked-down wall. Pegged to another wall is a single wooden cross, still intact.

The church inside a commercial building had served about 100 believers for years. But in late January, nearly 60 officials from the local religion department and police station appeared without warning. Armed with electric saws, they demolished the church, confiscated Bibles and computers and held a handful of young worshippers — including a 14-year-old girl — at a police station for more than 10 hours, according to a church leader.

Even Protestant churches already registered with the state have not been spared greater restrictions. When reporters visited five such churches in Henan this June, all bore notices at their entrances stating that minors and party members were not allowed inside. A banner above one church door exhorted members to “implement the basic direction of the party’s religious work.” Another church erected a Chinese flag at the foot of its steps.

Guo’s brick house was largely deserted this summer. Around the door frame, tattered red outlines remained of a scroll that once read “God’s love is as deep as the sea.”

Inside, Guo has refused to remove the cross and other decorations, telling authorities they are within his private property.

Among them, pinned to a wall in the nave, is a bright blue poster that quotes China’s constitutional promise of religious freedom.

          Wu Yiming: Painting the Banal       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Opening: 2018/09/08, 16:00-18:00 Duration: 2018/09/08 – 2018/10/21 (Tue.-Sun. 11:00-18:00, Mon. Closed) Address: ShanghART Shanghai 1F, West Bund, Bldg.10, 2555 Longteng Avenue, Xuhui District, Shanghai, China 200232 www.shanghartgallery.com This September, ShanghART Gallery will be honored to host an exhibition of works by artist Wu Yiming, “Painting the Banal”. These works are a continuation of the artist's experiments in the use of a spare and refined painting style over the past few years. Full of expressiveness, they reveal the feelings, the literary sensibility and the spiritual value of contemporary imagery as it is shaped by the ink. Thanks to creative efforts that have grown increasingly personal in recent years, Wu Yiming's works have blazed for themselves a “Third Way” in between contemporary pictorial consciousness and the traditional spirit of Chinese painting. By depicting scenes of everyday life, they pierce through to the deepest sensorial layer of our experience of the present. Although these works appear to reference the frankness and concision of traditional freehand brushwork, there is more to them. In the ordinary glimpses of life that Wu depicts, flowers, tree shadows or city lights are no longer presented before our eyes with the matter-of-factness of "objects"; indeed, they are replaced with experience itself, directly rendered and laid bare with the vividness and the expressive power of ink and brush strokes. In the words of Italian curator Monica Dematte, “by choosing the medium that he feels he is most in tune with, and by considering the reason behind this choice, the artist engages in a deep self-analysis that allows him to view himself more clearly and to formulate a unique, subjective interpretation of the world.” As a result, “Painting the Banal” refers both to the production of a visual representation within the painting, but also to a reiteration on the picture plane of the artist's experience of painting itself. What it reflects is rather a subjective visual consciousness than a result; it stands for the resistance of an individual being, by means of his concrete experience of reality and of his own emotions, against the spiritual crisis so evidently manifested by contemporary life. It is also on this level that one may notice most clearly the new strides accomplished by Wu Yiming in his practice over recent years. While his early works would always make both the public and art critics waver between the Chinese tradition, Western contemporaneity, "New Ink" or other movements in choosing the frame of historical judgment or theoretical awareness to consider them, Wu's recent works increasingly elude such constraining frameworks, and instead, display a mature tranquility in which the artist is free to do as he pleases, without ever going astray. “A flower is a flower, a tree is a tree”: this is precisely the self-sufficient state that is brought about by an abundant experience of painting—and it constitutes the deepest spiritual core of the “Painting the Banal” However, on the other hand, the "freehand-painted" things, sceneries, light, or shadows are but depicted objects; the actual subject, hidden behind the canvass, is in fact the artist himself. Therefore, the “Painting the Banal” can be viewed to large extent as the collision and the fusion on the picture plane of “minor” painted objects with a “major” human. Indeed, for the artist, the poetry of everyday life is evoked in between the frankness of brush strokes and the unspeakableness of experience. In the Shepherd's Purse series, which gathers new works from 2018 that form part of this exhibition, the public is granted a glimpse of the artist's depiction and understanding of objects, in between being and nothingness. This wild vegetable, beloved of the Chinese, has a most simple and unadorned appearance; however, drawn in Wu's ink, it is endowed with a blooming, enchanting vitality, and expands like a voice suddenly resonating through silent space. As for the Curtains series, it displays a scenery of a different spirit altogether: the perspective of these paintings brings to mind the most ordinary moments of life, as if they were corridors of time, their shapes at once blurry and mottled, shuttling back and forth within our consciousness. Besides those meticulously depicted colors and patterns of curtains and vegetables, in Wu's Light series and in his representations of urban sceneries, which he has worked on continuously over the past two years, one can also clearly sense this “slowness” of time. It is experience itself, revealed on the canvass, but also an act of contemplation and introspection carried out by the artist in the silence of his solitary corner. About the Artist WU Yiming, born in 1966 in Shanghai, graduated from the Fine Arts Department of East China Normal University. He now lives and works in Shanghai. The selected exhibitions include: Light in the Dark, Mind Set Art Center, Taipei (2017); WU Yiming Recent Works, ShanghART, Beijing (2015); The Beginning of Good Life, Wu Yiming solo exhibition, Mind Set Art Center, Taibei (2014); The Other Side of Time - WU Yiming Solo Exhibition, ShanghART Gallery, Shanghai (2012); Growing Up, Exhibition Celebrating SWFC 3rd & ShanghART Gallery 15th Anniversary, Shanghai World Financial Center, Shanghai (2011); Portrait, ShanghART Gallery, Shanghai (2010); Another Scene - Artists' Projects, Concepts and Ideas, ShanghART H-Space, Shanghai (2009); The World of Other's: A Contemporary Art Exhibition, Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai (2008); Harmony and Difference, East China Contemporary Sculpture Invitational Exhibition, Shanghai (2007); Contemporary Chinese Art, Gallery Karsten Greve, Cologne, Germany (2006); FOCUS: Wu Yiming's Works on Paper and Sculptures, ShanghART Gallery, Shanghai (2006); Time Ex., UMA Gallery, Hong Kong (2005); China, Contemporary Painting, Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio, Bologna, Italy (2005); Dreaming of the Dragon's Nation, Contemporary Art from China, IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art), Dublin, Ireland (2004), etc. 2018-08-09 18:24

           Cathay suffers profit loss, but revenue rises in first half as cargo gains      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways suffered a first half net loss of HK$263 million (US$30 million), a plunge of 1,788 per cent year on year drawn on revenues of HK$53.07 billion, which increased 15.7 per cent.Despite the loss, "funds attributable to shareholders of Cathay Pacific" increased 6.5 per cent year on year to HK$65.05 billion, according to a filing of the Hong Kong stock exchange."Our cargo business was strong, with growth in both volume and yield," said Cathay chairman John Slosar. We benefited from a weak US dollar during the early part of the period, but were adversely affected by significantly increased fuel prices."Available tonne kilometres (ATK) stood at 15,747 million in the first half, up 3.7 per cent year on year while available seat kilometres (ASK) were up 3.2 per cent to 75,770 million.First half available cargo and mail tonne kilometres were up 4.1 per cent to 8,542 while passenger revenue per ASK HK cents was up 7.1 per cent. Cargo and mail revenue per AFTK was up 20 per cent year on year and yield increased 16.3 per cent.Said Mr Slosar: "Cargo revenue improved, reflecting strong demand. Tonnage carried grew faster than capacity and yield strengthened, reflecting increasing demand for specialist cargo shipments and the movement of higher value goods to and from Asia."The group's cargo revenue in the first half of 2018 was HK$12,971 million, an increase of 23.4 per cent compared to the same period in 2017. Tonnage carried increased 7.5 per cent a million tonnes. Yield increased 16.3 per cent, he said."Our airlines usually perform better in the second half of the year than in the first half of the year. We expect this to be the case in 2018," Mr Slosar said."Our transformation programme will continue. We believe that we are on track to achieve our objective of achieving sustainable long-term performance for our airline businesses.There is still much to do, but I am confident in our future. Of course, our success can only be achieved with the extraordinary efforts of management and service delivery professionals, according to Shipping Gazette.

           Cathay Pacific makes gains in corporate austerity drive after 18 months      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific group is past the halfway mark of a three-year restructuring effort that started in 2016 aiming to cut HK$4 billion (US$509,588 million) in costs and boost revenue.So far it has axed 600 of 3,600 head office jobs in Hong Kong and begun consulting selected employees based in its 100 offices worldwide on trimming staff numbers, reported Hong Kong's South China Morning Post. The company employs about 7,600 outside Hong Kong.The big challenge lies in reducing the pay and benefits of its 3,300 pilots by 10 per cent, or HK$1 billion.Corrine Png of transport research firm Crucial Perspective was the most cautious among analysts the Post surveyed, forecasting a HK$1.8 billion first-half loss."The 32 per cent year-on-year spike in spot jet fuel prices in [the first half of 2018] is a huge challenge as fuel is Cathay Pacific's largest cost component," Ms Png said.The 32 per cent year-on-year spike in spot jet fuel prices is a huge challenge as fuel is Cathay Pacific's largest cost component."As Cathay's fuel hedges were locked in at higher prices, they cannot offset the negative impact of higher spot fuel prices."At the opposite end, a bullish analyst from a major European bank, who declined to be named, predicted a half-year HK$156 million profit, taking into account a big increase in revenue more than covering rising costs.Geoffrey Cheng Bok-hoi, deputy head of research at investment bank Bocom International, said he expected the airline to make a net profit of HK$140 million, citing higher revenue due to improved yields - selling more fares - which outpaced its rising costs.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s Ties To China Go Way Deeper Than An Alleged Office Spy
Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s warm relationship with and advocacy for Communist China go back decades and involve millions, if not billions, of dollars.



By Ben Weingarten
August 8, 2018

“I sometimes say that in my last life maybe I was Chinese.”—Sen. Dianne Feinstein

As media, intelligence agency, and political scrutiny of foreign meddling is seemingly at its apex, a story with big national security implications involving a high-ranking senator with access to America’s most sensitive intelligence information has been hiding in plain sight.

The story involves China and the senior U.S. senator from California, and former chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Democrat Dianne Feinstein. It was buried eight paragraphs into a recent Politico exposé on foreign efforts to infiltrate Silicon Valley, as a passing example of political espionage:

Former intelligence officials…[said] Chinese intelligence once recruited a staff member at a California office of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, and the source reported back to China about local politics. (A spokesperson for Feinstein said the office doesn’t comment on personnel matters or investigations, but noted that no Feinstein staffer in California has ever had a security clearance.)

Later comes additional detail:

According to four former intelligence officials, in the 2000s, a staffer in Senator Dianne Feinstein’s San Francisco field office was reporting back to the MSS [ China’s Ministry of State Security, its intelligence and security apparatus]. While this person, who was a liaison to the local Chinese community, was fired, charges were never filed against him. (One former official reasoned this was because the staffer was providing political intelligence and not classified information—making prosecution far more difficult.) The suspected informant was ‘run’ by officials based at China’s San Francisco Consulate, said another former intelligence official. The spy’s handler ‘probably got an award back in China’ for his work, noted this former official, dryly.

This anecdote provides significantly more questions than answers. For starters: Who was the spy? For how long was the spy under surveillance? What information about “local politics” was the spy passing back to China? Just how close was the spy to the senator? Did law enforcement officials sweep vehicles and other areas for listening devices? Was there an investigation into whether others in the senator’s circle may have been coordinating with Beijing?

Did the senator expose herself to potential blackmail, or the public to danger through leakage of sensitive, highly classified information? Is firing really the proper punishment for providing political intelligence to a foreign power?

The Details Right Now Are Few and Blurry We now know only the most basic of additional details about what occurred in Feinstein’s office. Five years ago, the FBI approached the senator to apprise her that a San Francisco-based staffer was being investigated under suspicion of spying for China. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Feinstein’s hometown paper, this staffer, who had worked with Feinstein for almost 20 years, drove her around in San Francisco and “served as gofer in her San Francisco office and as a liaison to the Asian American community, even attending Chinese Consulate functions for the senator.”

An unnamed source added that a Chinese MSS official first approached the staffer during a visit to Asia several years prior. Given his proximity to Feinstein, we have no idea what information he could have gleaned in her employ. We do have a presumed identity. The Daily Caller discovered that a Feinstein staffer named Russell Lowe, listed on the senator’s payroll as an “office director” as of 2013 before he was let go, matches the description of the Chinese asset.

It appears Lowe continues to operate freely in the United States. A year after he was removed from Feinstein’s staff, Lowe spoke at a conference on Chinese investment in California. In October 2017 he visited a South Korean publication’s office with former Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA), indicating he still had access to political figures.

Lowe presently serves as secretary general of the Education for Social Justice Foundation, which seeks to “educate the public on unresolved historical conflicts, human rights, and crimes against humanity.” The Chinese government likely views its present focus favorably: Japanese abuses during the World War II era via its “comfort women” system whereby 200,000 girls from 13 or more Asian countries were forced into sexual slavery. Lowe discusses the nonprofit’s work here.

It took a tweet from President Trump implying hypocrisy, given Feinstein’s role investigating “Russian collusion” as a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, while a Chinese spy had infiltrated her own office, to force the senator to address the issue.

(1/2) The FBI told me 5 years ago it had concerns that China was seeking to recruit an administrative member of my Calif staff (despite no access to sensitive information). I took those concerns seriously, learned the facts and made sure the employee left my office immediately. pic.twitter.com/qpVyPanpJk

— Sen Dianne Feinstein (@SenFeinstein) August 4, 2018

Feinstein’s account conflicts with what has been reported regarding the recruitment and activities of the Chinese spy. She conveniently omits that her office employed this individual for almost 20 years in a close capacity, while he represented the senator in interactions with Chinese officials.

A Short History of Dianne Feinstein’s Love for China For the last 40 years, no politician in America has arguably maintained a deeper, more longstanding and friendlier relationship with China, at the highest levels of its ruling Communist Party, than Feinstein. It dates back to the opening of U.S.-Chinese diplomatic relations in 1979.

Shortly thereafter, Feinstein, then mayor of San Francisco, established a “sister city” relationship with Shanghai, one of the earliest and most robust such relationships in U.S.-China history. Soon after, Feinstein led a mayoral delegation to China joined by her husband, investor Richard Blum, a trip they took together many times over the ensuing years as the relationship between both Feinsteins and China grew.

During the 1980s, as mayor of San Francisco, Feinstein developed a close friendship with Shanghai Mayor Jiang Zemin. This substantially enhanced Feinstein’s foreign policy profile, and created an important linkage to the U.S. government for China’s Communist Party (CCP).

Just as Feinstein rose to a prominent position in foreign affairs and national security in the U.S. Senate, first on the Foreign Relations Committee and later as chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Jiang rose to the top of Chinese leadership, serving as chairman of the Central Military Commission, general secretary of the CCP, and president of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Under Jiang’s leadership, the PRC initiated a brutal crackdown against practitioners of Falun Gong, including mass imprisonments, beatings, torture, rape, organ harvesting, and murder, and engaging in alleged human rights atrocities against Tibetans. Feinstein never renounced her friendship with Jiang, in spite of these acts.

Feinstein and Jiang reportedly visited each other regularly in the 1980s, with Jiang once spending Thanksgiving in San Francisco with Feinstein and her husband. Jiang supposedly danced with Feinstein during one such visit, which surely must have been a propaganda coup for the CCP a la Ted Kennedy and the Soviets.

It Turned Out to Be a Lucrative Relationship In 1986, Feinstein and Jiang designated several corporate entities for fostering commercial relations, one named Shanghai Pacific Partners. Feinstein’s husband served as a director. His financial position was relatively small, less than $500,000 on one project, the only such position in China the Feinstein family held when Feinstein entered the Senate in 1992.


‘They said that Feinstein’s consistent support for China’s interests cannot help but benefit her husband’s efforts to earn profits there.’
That project, however, which Blum’s firm participated in alongside PRC state-run Shanghai Investment Trust Corp., was one of the first joint ventures between San Francisco and Chinese investors, reportedly “cited by Chinese officials as a testament to the friendly business ties between Shanghai and San Francisco that Feinstein had initiated.” Subsequently Blum’s investments in the Middle Kingdom mushroomed.

In May 1993, Feinstein expressed her strong support on the Senate floor for continued trading with China. Contemporaneously, her husband was seeking to raise up to $150 million from investors, including himself, for a variety of Chinese enterprises.

In August 1993, Feinstein and her husband visited Beijing for extensive meetings with Chinese leaders at President Jiang’s invitation. As the Los Angeles Times reported in a 1994 exposé on Feinstein’s husband’s business ties and the potential conflict of interests they presented: “Such encounters are fondly remembered when deals are clinched back in China, according to American experts in Chinese business practices. They said that Feinstein’s consistent support for China’s interests cannot help but benefit her husband’s efforts to earn profits there.”

The historical record suggests these American experts were right. Blum successfully raised $160 million for the aforementioned Asia fund under his Newbridge Capital investment company, including investing $1-2 million himself. The fund invested in several state-owned and Chinese government-linked businesses.

Why, We Love Trading with China Blum’s firm’s largest holding—at the time his China investments began to draw scrutiny in 1997—was its stake in Northwest Airlines. The then-estimated $300 million position was poised to significantly appreciate in value, as Northwest happened to be the sole airline operator providing nonstop service from the United States to any city in China.


On one such visit in January 1996, Feinstein and Blum enjoyed a meal with President Jiang.
When questioned on his China investments, Blum pledged to donate future profits from the holdings to his nonprofit foundation to help Tibetan refugees, thereby “remov[ing] any perception that I, in any way, shape or form benefit from or influence my wife’s position on China as a U.S. senator.” But these conflict of interest issues persisted.

In January 1995, Feinstein was appointed to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Subsequently, she made several visits to China, accompanied by her husband, where she met with senior government officials.

During these trips it the couple was wined and dined. On one such visit in January 1996, Feinstein and Blum enjoyed a meal with President Jiang in Zhongnanhai, the exclusive leadership compound for China’s Communist Party, where according to Feinstein they ate in Mao Zedong’s residence in the room where he died.

Feinstein kept up her dogged support for increased trade with China. In May 1996, she penned an editorial in the Los Angeles Times calling for the United States to grant most-favored-nation trading status to China “on a permanent basis and get past the annual dance that is proving to be extraordinarily divisive and not at all helpful toward reaching the oft-stated goal: improvement in human rights.”

Campaign Contributions from Foreign Sources While Feinstein maintained her pro-China positions, in March 1997, the senator revealed that the FBI had warned her the Chinese government might seek to funnel illegal contributions to her campaign fund. She was one of only six members of Congress to receive such a warning. As the New York Times noted at the time, Feinstein had returned $12,000 in 1994 contributions from people with connections to Lippo Bank, an arm of a multi-billion dollar conglomerate owned by the Riady family, with investments and operations throughout Asia. It employed a senior American executive named John Huang.


At the time Feinstein disclosed returning the Lippo-tied contributions, Huang was under Justice Department investigation.
The Riadys had been friends and supporters of the Clintons since Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas. Clinton named Huang, a top fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), his deputy assistant secretary of commerce.

At the time Feinstein disclosed returning the Lippo-tied contributions, Huang was under Justice Department investigation for making potentially illegal contributions to the Democratic Party from foreign sources. He later pled guilty to violating campaign finance laws as part of the investigation into Chinese attempts to influence U.S. policy through illegal campaign contributions stemming from the 1996 election.

It was later revealed that Huang may have had a direct financial relationship with the Chinese government. The DNC returned more than half of the $3 million he had collected for the party. In 1998, an unclassified report from the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs stated that the Riadys—Huang’s former employer, the leader of which had also pled guilty to campaign finance violations—“had a long-term relationship with a Chinese intelligence agency.”

What is the connection to Feinstein? In June 1996, the senator held a fundraiser at her home attended by President Clinton, Huang, and Xiaoming Dia, chairman of a Hong Kong-based investment company in which Lippo Group had owned a controlling stake until 1994.

The Chinese Get Feinstein’s Lucrative Political Support In May 2000, Feinstein lobbied for making permanent normal trading relations with China, a measure that ultimately passed, and helped pave the way for its entrance into the World Trade Organization, which Feinstein also supported. At the time, a spokesperson for Feinstein indicated that her husband had divested of his last holdings in mainland China in 1999. But Blum’s stake in another Newbridge Capital Asia fund, which contained investments in China, belied that assertion.

Meanwhile, in the years leading to the passage of that legislation, Blum’s Newbridge Capital reportedly invested more than $400 million into East Asian businesses, at least $90 million of which was “invested in companies whose profits are pegged to the burgeoning mainland China market, according to the companies themselves,” and several of which were partly owned or founded by the Chinese government. If nothing else, Blum still stood to profit handsomely from management fees for these portfolios.


Defense companies in which Blum’s firms were invested signed billions of dollars in military contracts approved by Feinstein’s committee.
Such investments in Chinese assets continued. In 2004, Newbridge Capital purchased an 18 percent stake in Shenzhen Development Bank, the first time a foreign company took effective control of a Chinese lender. From 2001 to 2005, Feinstein served as chair of the Senate Military Construction Appropriations Committee. During this time, defense companies in which Blum’s firms were invested signed billions of dollars in military contracts approved by Feinstein’s committee.

This suggests a parallel pattern in the Feinstein family’s political and business dealings that adversaries like China surely could have sought to exploit. When pressed on conflicts of interest, however, on multiple occasions Feinstein has flippantly responded by rhetorically asking what she could do to satisfy those raising the issue, short of getting divorced.

Feinstein’s husband has stressed that his ties to the Dalai Lama and criticism of Chinese human rights violations would never have helped him curry favor with the Chinese, and maintained no conflict of interest between his wife’s position and his investments.

The senator recently co-sponsored the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018 (FIRRMA), incorporated into the pending National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which gives the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States greater oversight over foreign transactions, geared in part towards China’s malign efforts to gain valuable technology and steal intellectual property. But provisions penalizing sanctions-violating Chinese telecommunications company ZTE were stripped from the NDAA at the Trump administration’s urging.

Interestingly, perhaps anticipating future troubles (the House Intelligence Committee would first warn that ZTE posed national security risks in 2012), in October 2011, ZTE hired its first in-house lobbyist: None other than former Feinstein aide Peter Ruffo, a position it appears he still holds today.

Feinstein’s Related Apologism for the Chinese Government Feinstein’s economic positions frequently downplayed the PRC’s rampant human rights violations. The senator has fashioned herself a peacemaker, often urging appeasement of the Chinese regime in both apologism for such abuses and urging restraint.


Feinstein also argued against tying China’s most-favored-nation trading status to human rights improvements.
These efforts date back to the early 1980s. Until that time, participants in San Francisco’s Chinese New Year Parade displayed the flag of the Nationalist Chinese government, which had ruled in exile on Taiwan after 1949. According to San Francisco Gate, then-mayor Feinstein “asked organizers to stop the partisan practice because she wanted to encourage trade with China.”

Feinstein also argued against tying China’s most-favored-nation trading status to human rights improvements. In an argument that reads as not only beyond naïve, but demonstrates an offensive moral equivalency, Feinstein added: “Chinese society continues to open up with looser ideological controls, freer access to outside sources of information and increased media reporting. More people in China vote for their leadership on the local level than do Americans. Economic liberalization is introducing market forces into the economy. Educational levels are up, along with wages and the standard of living” (emphasis mine).

In March 1996, Feinstein sought to ease tensions between China and Taiwan, arranging discussions with high-level Chinese dignitaries on Capitol Hill, at China’s behest. During this period, Feinstein took an uncharacteristically aggressive stance towards China’s hostile actions, conducting missile tests near Taiwan, presumably in line with the Clinton administration: “We view the missile exercises…as provocative and unnecessary.”

She took an arguably harsher line towards then-Taiwanese President Lee Teng-Hui, stating: “What is really necessary is for [the leaders of] Taiwan to make a statement in word and in deed that they will adhere to a one-China policy.”

In February 1997, Feinstein against sought to draw an offensive moral equivalence between America and Communist China in calling for a joint U.S.-China commission to examine “the evolution of human rights in both countries over the last 20 or 30 years,” that would “point out the success and failures–both Tiananmen Square and Kent State.”

In a June 2010 interview with the Wall Street Journal covering a trip to China in which she met with old pals Jiang and former premier Zhu Rongji, Feinstein seemed to further downplay and even alibi the Tiananmen Square massacre:

I think that was a great setback for China in the view of the world. And I think China has also – as we would – learned lessons from it.

It just so happens I was here after that and talked to Jiang Zemin and learned that at the time China had no local police. It was just the PLA [People’s Liberation Army]. And no local police that had crowd control. So, hence the tanks.

Clearly none of that made good sense. But that’s the past. One learns from the past. You don’t repeat it. I think China has learned a lesson.

That year, Feinstein also challenged the Obama administration’s $6.4 billion arms sale to Taiwan, calling it a “substantial irritant” to U.S.-China relations.

Similarly, in late 2015, Feinstein effectively sought to defend the CCP from criticism, on a purportedly pragmatic basis, in fighting legislation from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that would have named the street running in front of the Chinese Embassy in Washington DC “Liu Xiaobo Plaza.” Xiaobo, a Nobel Prize-winning anti-Communist writer and human rights activist, had at the time been held in jail for seven years by the Chinese government for criticizing the regime.

When Cruz sought unanimous consent for the bill on the occasion of President Xi Jinping’s U.S. visit, Feinstein blocked it. A month later, when Cruz reintroduced the measure, citing a statement co-authored by Feinstein and her Democrat colleague Pat Leahy calling for Xiaobo’s release, Feinstein again blocked the legislation.

Finally, in February 2016, the bill cleared the Senate in a unanimous voice vote, though it died in the House amid a veto threat from the Obama administration. Later, Feinstein did co-sponsor a resolution honoring Xiaobo’s freedom-fighting efforts—shortly after his death, in state custody, in July 2017.

This Is About Much More than a Chinese Spy Let us review the facts here.

  • China has for almost 40 years cultivated warm relations with Feinstein.
  • Feinstein has uniformly taken political positions supporting greater ties with China while taking a relatively dovish and strictly apologist line on its human rights atrocities.
  • Feinstein’s husband has profited handsomely during Feinstein’s career from the greatly expanded China trade she supported. It is of course possible that the Feinstein family’s privileged position with the Chinese regime improved his investment opportunities.
  • Feinstein has served as a key intermediary between China and the U.S. government, while serving on committees whose work would be of keen interest to the PRC.
  • A staffer of almost two decades in close proximity to Feinstein was allegedly successfully recruited by China’s MSS and fed China “political intelligence.”
Imagine for a second how a motivated and empowered prosecutor would operate in this situation if tasked with exploring “any links and/or coordination” between the Chinese government, Feinstein, and individuals associated with her office.

Few American officials could have been as potentially exposed to the PRC’s skilled intelligence service as Feinstein. Here we have not only proof of a spy, but real evidence of consistently pro-Chinese policy that at very best created the appearance of a financial conflict of interest.

Recall that the Chinese regime conducted the cataclysmic U.S. Office of Personnel Management hack, arming it with the most compromising possible information on 21 million government employees and applicants. Then the PRC liquidated America’s entire informant network on the Chinese mainland. So why isn’t this a major national story drawing hysterical cries of treason and calls for impeachment?

Feinstein’s dealings with the Chinese must be investigated. But so too ought the links between federal officials and all of our adversaries, be it the Chinese and Russians, the Pakistanis and Iranians, or the Muslim Brotherhood and its state supporters. Feinstein is only one politician. How many other relationships with American politicians have the Chinese and our other adversaries fostered? How many spies might they have recruited?

We need a top-to-bottom reform of our government’s vetting efforts, and enhancement of our counterintelligence capabilities. Attempts by foreign countries to infiltrate our political offices pose a grave national security threat, as Feinstein’s record clearly shows. With people like her on pertinent congressional committees, however, how many foxes have been elected to guard the henhouse? Representatives’ responses to reform measures will help us find out.


          CENTRESTAGE ELITES 2018 to Feature Top Asian Designers: FACETASM, IDISM and Ms MIN to Showcase Latest Fashion Collections      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

2 August 2018 -- CENTRESTAGE, Asia’s premier fashion event, will be held in Hong Kong for the third year from 5to 8 September. The opening gala show, CENTRESTAGE ELITES, will see three of Asia’s most celebrated fashion designer labels – FACETASM from Japan, IDISM from Hong Kongand Ms MIN from the Chinese mainland – showcasing their latest 2019 Spring/Summer (SS19) collections for an international audience of trendsetters. Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) to consolidate Hong Kong’s position as a fashion hub in Asia, CENTRESTAGE offers a platform for international, especially Asian, fashion brands and designers to launch and promote their designs.

Spotlight on Top Asian Fashion Designers

The first evening of CENTRESTAGE 2018 will put three top Asian brands and their newest collections under the spotlight, including award-winning Japanese avant-garde streetwear label FACETASM by Hiromichi Ochiai. FACETASM will present its latest collection at CENTRESTAGE ELITES, showcasing the designer’s bold and eclectic designs. Meanwhile, Hong Kong brand IDISM will launch its newest line of ready-to-wear womenswear at CENTRESTAGE ELITES. Design duo Julio Ng and Cyrus Wong debuted IDISM in 2016 and have since participated in Paris Fashion Week several times. In 2017, the label was selected as one of Vogue’s Talents, while also being dubbed “The Future of Asia” by YOHO! magazine.With the brand’s philosophy based on being active, true to nature, attuned to the senses and following a distinctive lifestyle, IDISM was created for the spontaneous lifestyle of the contemporary city woman, which manifests true beauty coming from within. At the same catwalk show, Chinese luxury womenswear label Ms MIN will reveal

its newest collection. Its founder Min Liu, mentored by fashion mogul Sarah Rutson, has built a fashion empire around an aesthetic that seamlessly meshes modernity with classicism.

220+ Brands from around the World

As one of Asia’s signature fashion events connecting brands, buyers, media and fashionistas, CENTRESTAGE 2018 will feature a record number of over 220 brands from around the world, presenting about 40 events including more than 20 fashion shows and parades during the event period. A series of insightful seminars and panels such as the Master Sharing Series and Trend Talk Series will be hosted by fashion design masters and industry experts, with a focus on upcoming fashion trends and the importance of sustainability in the industry.

YDC: A Runway for Young Designers to Take off

In addition to CENTRESTAGE ELITES, The Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers’ Contest 2018 (YDC) will be another highlight of this year’s CENTRESTAGE. The judging panel will include Lawrence Leung, Chairman of the HKTDC Garment Advisory Committee and Michael Mok, General Manager of Merchandising/Head of Merchandising at JOYCE Boutique Ltd, while internationally renowned fashion designer Martine Rose will be the VIP judge.

YDC has successfully nurtured and promoted a new generation of Hong Kong fashion design talent since 1977. This year, 16 shortlisted candidates will compete for five awards including the New Talent Award and Best Footwear Design Award. Arto Wong, last year’s Champion and New Talent Award winner, will release her capsule collection Zero to Unlimited at JOYCE this August and display it at CENTRESTAGE this September. The event will also feature the latest works by other YDC 2017 winners, including Sonic Lam, who has partnered with Woolmark to develop a new outfit made with wool, and Jason Lee, winner of last year’s Best Footwear Design Award, who will showcase his capsule collection I Go to School by Bus.

FASHIONALLY Shows: Launch Pads for Local Designers

Now in its 12th edition, FASHIONALLY Collection, a highlighted CENTRESTAGE show dedicated to Hong Kong designers, will welcome 10 local designer brands, including contemporary classic menswear label DEMO. and KEVIN HO, a modern womenswear label that participated in New York Fashion Week 2017. Furthermore, the FASHIONALLY Presentation show at CENTRESTAGE will feature three new local designer labels launching their SS19 collections. Unlike at conventional runway shows, the three labels – Redemptive, Tak Lee and YLYstudio – will present their collection in a storytelling format on a theatre-style stage.

To spread the fashion buzz to the wider community, the Hong Kong in Fashion citywide campaign will be held from mid-August to the end of September in collaboration with over 100 partners, including fashion boutiques, fashion design institutes, restaurants and hotels. More than 90 events will be held across the city for public participation, including workshops, competitions, fashion parades and exhibitions.

          Asian Games 2018: Timnas Taiwan Kerasan di Bekasi      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Timnas Taiwan siap unjuk gigi saat menjalani persaingan Grup A cabang olahraga sepak bola Asian Games 2018. Pasalnya, mereka kerasan dengan suasana Kota Bekasi, Jawa Barat. 

Taiwan bakal melakoni tiga partai Grup A cabang olahraga sepak bola Asian Games di Stadion Patriot Chandrabaga.

"Saya lihat Bekasi kota yang bagus. Warganya juga ramah dan makanannya sangat enak," kata juru bicara Timnas Taiwan, Brian Lin, di lokasi penginapan Hotel Harris Summarecon Bekasi.

Lee Hsiang-wei dan kawan-kawan sempat dilanda kelelahan akibat perjalanan jauh ketika tiba di Kota Bekasi, Selasa (7/8/2018). Namun, situasi di Kota Bekasi membuat pemain nyaman beristirahat.

Brian mengaku persiapan Taiwan menghadapi Timnas Indonesia telah sepenuhnya matang jelang pertemuan keduanya pada Minggu (12/8/2018). Selain tuan rumah, Taiwan juga menghadapi Palestina, Hong Kong, dan Laos pada persaingan Grup A sepak bola Asian Games 2018.

"Kemarin, Rabu (8/8/2018), kami melakukan latihan (di Stadion ABC Senayan, Jakarta). Tim tampak sudah benar-benar siap menghadapi lawan," katanya.

Kendala di Latihan

Dikatakan Brian, timnya sempat terkendala dengan ketiadaan bola dan air minum saat menjalani sesi latihan di Stadion ABC.

"Bagimana kami mau berlatih kalau bola dan air minumnya tidak ada. Namun pemain tidak terlalu mempersoalkan itu," katanya.

Klarifikasi Relawan

Secara terpisah, relawan Asian Games 2018 Devita memberikan klarifikasinya atas situasi tersebut.

"Memang bola dan air minum baru disediakan panitia pada Kamis (9/8/2018) di Stadion ABC. Kalau yang latihannya berlangsung pada Rabu belum dipersiapkan," katanya, dilansir Antara.

          Prediksi Laos U-23 Vs Hong Kong U-23: Kemenangan Mudah      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Jakarta Laga perdana Grup A Asian Games 2018 mempertemukan Timnas Laos U-23 dengan Timnas Hong Kong U-23, di Stadion Patriot Candrabhaga, Bekasi, Jumat (10/8/2018) sore WIB.

Bermaterikan pemain yang lebih mumpuni, Hong Kong diprediksi akan memetik kemenangan kontra Laos di Asian Games 2018. Satu di antara pemain Hong Kong yang bakal menjadi ancaman buat Laos adalah Cheng Chin Lung.

Pemain yang berposisi sebagai gelandang serang itu merupakan sosok andalan di klub Hong Kong, Kitchee SC. Pada musim 2017-2018, dia berhasil mendulang tiga gol dan tujuh assist dari 18 pertandingan di seluruh ajang kompetisi.

Selain itu, Hong Kong juga diperkuat pemain senior, Jordi Tarres. Telah berumur 37 tahun, Tarres diharapkan menjadi mesin gol sekaligus memimpin pemain-pemain muda Hong Kong di setiap pertandingan Asian Games 2018.

Pemain naturalisasi itu juga diyakini akan menjadi satu di antara top skorer Asian Games ke-18. Sebab, Tarres mampu mendulang 54 gol dari 118 laga bersama Kitchee SC.

Di sisi lain, timnas Laos U-23 lebih mengandalkan pemain-pemain yang berlaga di kompetisi domestik. Meski begitu, Laos tetap harus diwaspadai.

Apalagi pada pertemuan terakhir, Laos berhasil bermain 1-1 kontra Hong Kong dalam laga kualifikasi Piala Asia U-23, 21 Juli 2017.

Head to head kedua tim:

21/07/17 Hong Kong U-23 1 - 1 Laos U-23 (Kualifikasi Piala Asia 2018)

Lima pertandingan terakhir Laos U-23:

  • 23/07/17 Korea Utara U-23 6 - 0 Laos U-23 (Kualifikasi Piala Asia 2018)
  • 16/08/17 Myanmar U-23 3 - 1 Laos U-23 (SEA Games 2017)
  • 18/08/17 Laos U-23 0 - 2 Singapura U-23 (SEA Games 2017)
  • 21/08/17 Brunei U-23 0 - 3 Laos U-23 (SEA Games 2017)
  • 23/08/17 Laos U-23 1 - 3 Malaysia U-23 (SEA Games 2017)

Lima pertandingan terakhir Hong Kong U-23:

But the company’s earnings were not the reason why OSTK shares soared as much as 25% after hours: the reason was the surprising announcement by the company that Hong Kong-based private-equity firm GSR Capital had agreed to invest as much as $375 MM in exchange for equity in the retailer and, more importantly, its tZero blockchain subsidiary, which as a reminder capitalized on the cryptocurrency craze in late 2017 and concluded an Initial Coin Offering on December 18, 2017, almost to the day when Bitcoin hit an all-time high of just under $20,000.

          Asian stocks mixed, edging into bear territory as trade concerns weigh      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  • Trade concerns, mounting sanctions and tariff tensions keeping Asia-session equities on the cautious side.
  • Japanese GDP bump couldn't spur confidence in Tokyo as indexes slide anyway.

Asian equities are leaning towards the downside for Friday, with Japan's Nikkei 225 index back into the 22,400.00 region despite a positive showing for Japan's GDP numbers early in the day, and brewing trade concerns are again rearing their heads to take the top off of market-wide risk appetite.

The US is imposing trade sanctions on Russia over the chemical attack on a former Russian double agent in the UK earlier this year, and a fresh round of tariffs between the US and China going both ways are also due in the coming weeks, and concerns about the stability of the global economy in the face of an accelerating trade war are keeping equities restrained and bulls locked in their paddocks as mixed investment sentiment prevents traders from established any dedicated bull runs.

Japan's leading Nikkei 225 index is down -0.47% while Tokyo's Topix index steepens the decline, falling -0.65% so far for the day, while Chinese indexes go mixed for Friday, with Hong Kong's Hang Seng index down -0.17% and Shanghai's CSI 300 taking the other side to go 0.17% into the green; Australia's ASX 200 index, not wanting to be left out of the fun, is also down -0.10% as the week rounds itself out.

Nikkei 225 levels to watch

The Nikkei 225 is testing back into 22,450.00 on a bearish Friday after edging up through the week to tap into 22,600.00, but a lack of sustained buying power is taking the index back into recent lows, and the Nikkei is close to challenging support from recent swing lows near 22,340.00, while a resurgence of bidders will see resistance from this week's high at 22,800.00.

«Vediamo in questa iniziativa un segno di fede, speranza e amore, così necessari oggi per il mondo, e per Hong Kong in particolare, per promuovere la giustizia, la riconciliazione e la pace. Dobbiamo infatti educare i nostri giovani affinché anch’essi possano contribuire alla trasformazione della società». È quanto si legge nella lettera scritta congiuntamente dal vescovo emerito di Hong Kong, cardinale John Tong Hon, dal primate anglicano della città, arcivescovo Paul Kwong, e dal presidente dell’Hong Kong Christian Council, reverendo So Shing-yit Eric, in occasione dell’incontro internazionale dei giovani di Taizé che si svolge dall’8 al 12 agosto nella città asiatica. L’evento rappresenta «un mezzo per i cristiani e tutte le persone di buona volontà per aprire nuove strade di fede, speranza e amore».
I partecipanti, provenienti da molte nazioni asiatiche e di altri continenti, hanno un’età compresa fra i 18 e i 35 anni e sono ospitati presso famiglie e parrocchie. Dopo un’introduzione biblica per tutti alla fine della preghiera del mattino, il programma includerà workshop ai quali parteciperanno non solo giovani ma persone coinvolte in organizzazioni internazionali, comunità cristiane e iniziative locali di solidarietà. Ci saranno anche piccoli gruppi di condivisione.
Il pellegrinaggio di fiducia è stato preparato in modo approfondito: una delegazione della comunità di Taizé si è recata a Hong Kong già a febbraio pianificando l’evento internazionale; fratel Jean-Marie e fratel Han-yol si sono uniti in preghiera ai giovani nella chiesa di San Paolo e successivamente hanno partecipato a un servizio domenicale presso la chiesa dello Spirito Santo (una delle parrocchie ospitanti il raduno) presentando l’avvenimento ai fedeli. Fratel Lucas e fratel Ghislain sono stati invece invitati con fratel Han-yol alla riunione del clero provinciale anglicano.

C’est dans un sous-sol de Hong Kong que se situe la petite librairie indépendante de Caroline Chan. Depuis 1978, elle y accueille les chats errants, leur permettant de trouver un foyer et de se remettre sur pattes en attendant que l’un des clients ne soit séduit par ses moustaches et ne les adopte.

 

Ils sont libres de circuler à travers le magasin, de grimper sur les étagères ou de slalomer entre les piles de livres. À l’heure actuelle, il serait une quarantaine de matous à avoir trouvé refuge dans la librairie. Si l’on en croit Caroline, ils sont plus de 800 à avoir séjourné avec elle avant de trouver un foyer pour la vie.

 

Et c’est bien la seule raison de leur présence. Au fil des années, la propriétaire ne cesse d’insister : ce n’est pas une animalerie, mais bien une librairie. Tout comme un vieux livre resté trop longtemps sur les étagères est à la recherche de son lecteur, ces félins sont à la recherche d’un propriétaire, mais ils ne sont pas là pour attirer le client ou se faire réveiller à longueur de journée.


Lire avec un chat, ce bonheur partagé


Devenue un véritable sanctuaire non officiel pour chat errant, la petite librairie vaut le détour, aussi bien pour son originalité que pour son fonds de titres rares et anciens. Que ce soit pour les conseils de la libraire, trouver une prochaine lecture ou simplement lire en compagnie des squatteurs à poils, la boutique a réussi à se faire un nom au-delà du sous-sol.

          Samsung Galaxy Note 9 creates flutters in Apple's camp      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

New York, Aug 10 (IANS) Samsung, that maintained a comfortable lead in the second quarter this year with 20.9 per cent global market share, has now created flutters in Apples camp with unveiling its flagship Galaxy Note 9.

According to industry analysts, Note 9 can build a robust road-map for Samsung at a time when the premium segment globally is reporting flat or lower sales amid Chinese players offering flagship devices at a much lower price points in price-sensitive markets like India.

The 6.4-inch Note 9, launched here on Thursday, comes with a mammoth 1TB memory, a bigger battery and a Bluetooth-equipped S Pen which is unique to Note devices.

"The customers in the premium category are split between Android users (who usually prefer Samsung over any other brand) and the iOS users. Both the customers are distinct and usually like sticking to their choices," Upasana Joshi, Associate Research Manager, Client Devices, IDC India, told IANS.

Note 8 was a hit model last year -- post the debacle which Galaxy Note 7 created within the consumer mindset.

"Considering the overall feature to price bundling, Note 9 is an upgrade to the previous Galaxy Note 8 series but one will have to wait to see the demand generated from the Indian market," Joshi noted.

Samsung led the smartphone market by volume in the second quarter, shipping 71.6 million units while Apple shipped 41.3 million iPhones.

"With Apple soon coming with new launches, with three new model line-up, it will certainly change the market dynamics very soon.

"One thing is sure that Note 9 has removed the aspect of a 64GB entry variant in the premium segment. Let's see what Apple has to offer in the coming days," said Joshi.

The story is no different in India where Samsung bounced back in the second quarter with 29 per cent market share, toppling its Chinese rival Xiaomi which garnered a close 28 per cent, says Hong Kong-based Counterpoint Research.

Apple had a mere 1 per cent market share during the quarter -- its lowest in recent history -- owing to changes in its distribution strategy and domestic assembling not picking up pace.

"Global Premium smartphone market contributes to almost one fifth of the total smartphone market and the Note series is likely to do well in the segment," said Tarun Pathak, Associate Director at Counterpoint Research.

"S Pen is the core of overall Note series experience and Samsung has done improvement on the same which will drive the overall experience and brings in stickiness for note users," Pathak told IANS.

Within the Android user community, there is a specific niche for the Note series who wait up till this time of the year to change or upgrade their phone.

Samsung usually launches its premium flagships in two rounds annually -- first half is S series and second half is Note series.

"The early launch of Galaxy S9 and S9+ did create a large demand in first half of the year. However, it was unable to match traction of its previously launched model S8 which was a huge success," noted Joshi.

According to her, the industry will have to wait and watch for the Galaxy Note 9 to pick up pace with its discounted predecessor currently selling in highly competitive and price-sensitive India market.

According to Satish Meena, Senior Forecast Analyst at Forrester Research, Chinese players are bigger threat for Samsung than Apple as the company is losing more customers to Android phones made by Chinese manufacturers than Apple.

"The pricing will play a bigger role in deciding whether Samsung wants to fight the Chinese players or continue its focus on the premium customers in India," Meena emphasised.

          Apple Pay Gains Momentum With Estimated 250 Million Users, 200% Transaction Growth Predicted Next Year      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
An estimated 31 percent of iPhone users have made a purchase with Apple Pay in the past year, up from 25 percent a year ago, according to a new Apple Pay estimates shared today by Loup Ventures analyst Gene Munster.

Apple Pay now has an estimated 252 million users, equating to 31 percent of the active installed iPhone base, according to Munster.


Apple does not provide official details on how many people use Apple Pay, but in a recent earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that there were upwards of 1 billion Apple Pay transactions in Q3 2018, triple the amount from a year ago.

Based on these figures combined with past Apple reports of yearly Apple Pay growth, Munster expects transaction growth of 200 percent over the course of the next 12 months.


Bank adoption of Apple Pay is also growing steadily, and during the same earnings call, Apple announced that 4,900 banks support the feature. The number of banks supporting Apple Pay has increased by 1,701 since the December quarter, marking a 55 percent growth in North America, 141 percent in Asia, and 370 percent in Europe.

Munster believes that just 20 percent of global smartphone users use their phone as a wallet, a number that he expects to rise to 80 percent in the future.

Apple is well-poised to position the iPhone as the premium digital wallet on the market given that it's the only digital wallet option "with all five payment pillars" defined as mobile, desktop, in-app, peer to peer, and point of sale.

Munster says Apple Pay is much more popular overseas, with 85 percent of users being international compared to 15 percent in the United States. Apple Pay is estimated to have 38 million users in the U.S. and 215 million in the 20+ other countries where Apple Pay is available.


Apple Pay works in retail locations with the Apple Watch and iPhone, and in apps and on the web with iPhone, iPad, and Mac. As of iOS 11.3, Apple also supports Apple Pay Cash payments, a feature that is currently limited to the United States.

Apple Pay is available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Switzerland, Hong Kong, France, Russia, China, Japan, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, Ireland, Italy, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, UAE, Brazil, Ukraine, Norway, and Poland at the current time, and it is also set to expand to Germany later this year.

          Excessive preservative found in dried apricot and preserved leaf mustard samples and in breach of food labelling regulation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     The Centre for Food Safety (CFS) of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department announced today (August 9) that a loose-pack dried apricot sample and a prepackaged preserved leaf mustard sample were found to contain a preservative, sulphur dioxide, at levels exceeding the legal limits, and the preservative was not declared on the food label of the prepackaged preserved leaf mustard sample. The CFS is following up on the cases.
      
     Details of the product of preserved leaf mustard are as follows:
      
Product name: Chinese Sauerkraut
Hong Kong distributor: Not available in English
Net weight: 225 grams per box
Best-before date: September 27, 2018
      
     "The CFS collected the above-mentioned dried apricot and preserved leaf mustard samples from two supermarkets located respectively in Tai Po and Sha Tin for testing under its routine Food Surveillance Programme. The test results showed that the dried apricot sample contained sulphur dioxide at a level of 2 700 parts per million (ppm), exceeding the legal limit of 2 000 ppm, whereas the preserved leaf mustard sample contained sulphur dioxide at a level of 240 ppm, exceeding the legal limit of 100 ppm, and the preservative was not declared on the food label," the spokesman said.
      
     The CFS has informed the vendors concerned of the irregularities and the vendors have stopped selling and removed from shelves the affected batches of the products according to the CFS' instructions. The CFS is also tracing the source and distribution of the affected products. Should there be sufficient evidence, prosecution will be instituted.
      
     Sulphur dioxide is a commonly used preservative in a variety of foods including dried vegetables, dried fruits, pickled vegetables and meat products. This preservative is of low toxicity. As it is water soluble, most of it can be removed through washing and cooking. Occasional consumption of the abovementioned dried apricot with sulphur dioxide is unlikely to pose any adverse health effect to consumers. However, long term consumption may affect the digestive system. Based on the level of sulphur dioxide detected in the unsatisfactory sample of preserved leaf mustard, adverse health effects will not be caused under usual consumption. However, for individuals who are allergic to this preservative, there may be symptoms of shortness of breath, headache and nausea. The public are advised to seek medical treatment if they feel unwell after taking the food.
      
     The spokesman reminded the food trade that the use of preservatives in food must comply with the Preservatives in Food Regulation (Cap 132BD). Furthermore, the Food and Drugs (Composition and Labelling) Regulations (Cap 132W) require that the food ingredients of all prepackaged food for sale in Hong Kong should be listed out on the list of ingredients (including additives). Offenders are liable to a  maximum fine of $50,000 and six months' imprisonment upon convictions. Members of the public should buy food from reliable suppliers, and maintain a balanced diet so as to avoid excessive intake of certain chemicals as a result of frequent consumption of a small range of food items.
      
     The CFS will alert the trade, continue to follow up on the incidents and take appropriate actions. Investigation is ongoing.
          FS visits Dongguan (with photos)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     The Financial Secretary, Mr Paul Chan, today (August 9) visited Dongguan to meet with senior officials and keep himself abreast of the latest developments in the high-tech industry.
      
     Following his visit to Shenzhen two days ago, Dongguan is the second city visited by Mr Chan in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area this week.
      
     He first visited the China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) facility, including its control centre and underground accelerator facilities. The CSNS is one of the key science and technology infrastructure projects of the National 11th Five-Year Plan, and is the fourth neutron source facility in the world. The CSNS can be used widely in scientific research in different areas, such as materials science, life science, physics, chemistry and new energy.

     He then visited Songshan Lake Xbot Park to learn about its work in entrepreneurial incubation in robotics and related fields as well as nurturing relevant talents.
      
     Mr Chan called on the Secretary of the CPC Dongguan Municipal Committee, Mr Liang Weidong, and the Mayor of the Dongguan Municipal Government, Mr Xiao Yafei, and had lunch with them.

     Mr Chan said that Dongguan has a strategic location in the Bay Area and is an advanced manufacturing base. He expressed the hope that Hong Kong and Dongguan can further collaborate in commercialisation of results of scientific and technological research, and join hands to promote the development of the Bay Area.

     In the afternoon, Mr Chan visited a Hong Kong-invested electronic product company and a multinational corporation manufacturing mobile communication devices.
      
     Concluding the visit, Mr Chan returned to Hong Kong in the evening.

     The Security Bureau today (August 9) launched a two-month public consultation to seek views on the legislative proposal for improving the fire safety of old industrial buildings.

     To upgrade the fire safety standards of old industrial buildings, the Government proposes to introduce a new piece of legislation to mandate owners and occupiers of pre-1987 industrial buildings to upgrade the requirements of fire service installations and equipment as well as fire safety construction of their buildings.

     The new legislation targets buildings which were wholly or partly constructed to be used as a factory, workshop, industrial undertaking, godown, warehouse, place of bulk storage or similar industrial establishment on or before March 1, 1987, or those constructed for the aforesaid uses with their building plans first submitted to the Building Authority for approval on or before the same date. Under the new legislation, the Director of Fire Services and Director of Buildings, being the enforcement authorities, will inspect the target buildings and serve fire safety directions to require the owners and/or occupiers to upgrade the fire safety of such buildings to the required standard. The owners and/or occupiers must comply with the requirements within the period as stipulated in the directions.

     The consultation paper on the legislative proposal is now available on the website www.sb.gov.hk/eng/special/consultation/ib-bill.htm.

     Members of the public are invited to submit their views to the Security Bureau by mail to 9th Floor, East Wing, Central Government Offices, 2 Tim Mei Avenue, Tamar, Hong Kong; by fax to 2868 9159; or by email to fsibb_consultation@sb.gov.hk. The consultation will end on October 8, 2018.

     Further to the external merchandise trade statistics in value terms for June 2018 released earlier on, the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) released today (August 9) the volume and price statistics of external merchandise trade for that month.

     In June 2018, the volume of Hong Kong's total exports of goods increased by 0.7% over June 2017. Concurrently, the volume of imports of goods increased by 1.7%.

     Comparing the first half of 2018 with the same period in 2017, the volume of Hong Kong's total exports of goods increased by 6.7%. Concurrently, the volume of imports of goods increased by 7.9%.

     Comparing the second quarter of 2018 with the preceding quarter on a seasonally adjusted basis, the volume of total exports of goods increased by 0.8%. Concurrently, the volume of imports of goods increased by 0.7%.

     Changes in volume of external merchandise trade are derived from changes in external merchandise trade value with the effect of price changes discounted.

     Comparing June 2018 with June 2017, the prices of total exports of goods increased by 2.7%. Concurrently, the prices of imports of goods increased by 2.9%.

     As regards price changes in the first half of 2018 over the same period in 2017, the prices of total exports of goods increased by 2.5%. Concurrently, the prices of imports of goods increased by 2.6%.

     Price changes in external merchandise trade are reflected by changes in unit value indices of external merchandise trade, which are compiled based on average unit values or, for certain commodities, specific price data.

     The terms of trade index is derived from the ratio of price index of total exports of goods to that of imports of goods. Compared with the same periods in 2017, the index decreased by 0.2% and 0.1% in June 2018 and in the first half of 2018 respectively.

     Changes in the unit value and volume of total exports of goods by main destination are shown in Table 1.

     Comparing June 2018 with June 2017, the total export volume to Vietnam increased significantly, by 20.6%. Concurrently, the total export volume to the USA and Japan increased by 6.6% and 2.5% respectively. On the other hand, the total export volume to the mainland of China (the Mainland) and India decreased by 0.7% and 21.8% respectively.

     Over the same period of comparison, the total export prices to the Mainland, the USA and Japan increased by 3.6%, 3.4% and 2.8% respectively. On the other hand, the total export prices to Vietnam and India decreased by 0.2% and 4.3% respectively.

     Changes in the unit value and volume of imports of goods by main supplier are shown in Table 2.

     Comparing June 2018 with June 2017, the import volume from Korea and Singapore increased by 10.1% and 9.1% respectively. On the other hand, the import volume from Taiwan, Japan and the Mainland decreased by 0.6%, 1.3% and 1.7% respectively.

     Over the same period of comparison, the import prices from all main suppliers increased: Korea (+6.9%), the Mainland (+3.0%), Japan (+2.9%), Singapore (+2.6%) and Taiwan (+1.1%).

     Details of the above statistics are published in the June 2018 issue of "Hong Kong Merchandise Trade Index Numbers". Users can download the publication free of charge at the website of the C&SD (www.censtatd.gov.hk/hkstat/sub/sp230.jsp?productCode=B1020006).

     The year 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the implementation of the reform and opening up policies of the country, a momentous occasion.

     Under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary for Administration, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government has formed a steering committee to co-ordinate and oversee the major celebration events organised by the Government.

     "To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up of the country, the Government will adopt 'Joint Development·Shared Prosperity' as the theme of the celebration and will roll out the theme music shortly. The Government also will organise a series of celebration events, including a large-scale seminar and a thematic exhibition, and launch a dedicated website for sharing information with the public on various events related to the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up of the country," a government spokesman said today (August 9).

     The spokesman added that the Chief Secretary for Administration had outlined to community and business leaders as well as foreign consuls-general in Hong Kong the various celebration events and promotion activities planned. In addition, the Government launched in August this year the "Accreditation Scheme for Community Events in the HKSAR for the Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Reform and Opening Up of the Country" to encourage community and district organisations to organise different kinds of celebration events.  Organisers of accredited events can use the official logo and slogan designed by the Government in their celebration events and publicity materials (see photo).

     The Government looks forward to the active participation of the community in celebrating the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up of the country.

          El potente enemigo que puede hacer pedazos a Google      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


La guerra comercial no es el único contencioso entre China y EEUU. Hasta las compañías de tecnología están luchando por dominar el mercado del país asiático.

Tras la salida de Google de China en 2010 el motor de búsqueda chino Baidu mantiene su posición y le hará pedazos a Google, escribió en su cuenta de Wechat el director ejecutivo de Baidu, Robin Li. La posibilidad del regreso de Google a China se conoció luego de los informes de que la compañía estadounidense está desarrollando un motor de búsqueda especial para teléfonos inteligentes en Android, dirigido al mercado chino. ¿Necesita el mercado chino otro motor de búsqueda? ¿O puede la Red china ofrecer alguna alternativa a los productos occidentales?

Google está trabajando en un motor de búsqueda con el nombre Dragonfly, comunicó el portal The Intercept citando los documentos internos de la compañía. Se señala que Dragonfly es un sistema diseñado para teléfonos inteligentes con Android. El motor de búsqueda filtrará el contenido de acuerdo con los requisitos de la legislación china y no mostrará en los enlaces de resultados de búsqueda la información prohibida por las reglas de regulación de internet de China. Y el contenido no deseado se bloqueará en todas las secciones del motor de búsqueda: de archivos, imágenes, vídeos etc. Google no confirmó la información (pero no la refutó), simplemente indicando que no tienen la intención de comentar los datos de especulación. Sin embargo, los mercados reaccionaron con confianza a esta información: las acciones de Baidu, la mayor compañía de motores de búsqueda y tecnología en China, cayeron en más del 7%.

La reacción del mercado es, en principio, comprensible. Desde que Google salió de China en 2010, su competidor chino, Baidu, ha tomado una posición casi monopólica: la compañía controla más del 70% del mercado, según el propio Robin Li. Naturalmente, en ausencia de competencia, la compañía se desarrolló dinámicamente. Pero el posible regreso de un jugador tan fuerte como Google asusta a los inversores. Ya no son tan optimistas sobre el desarrollo futuro de Baidu.



Por supuesto, Google es un gigante global. Y competir con él en términos de tecnología, y en la cantidad de usuarios no es fácil ni siquiera para Baidu. Pero surge la pregunta: ¿necesitan los usuarios chinos un motor de búsqueda alternativo? Tal vez Baidu, al ocupar casi todo el mercado chino, cumpla completamente con sus necesidades, y cualquier alternativa ofrecida por Google, ¿simplemente no encontrará demanda en China?

El experto chino en tecnologías de internet Liu Xingliang dijo en una entrevista para Sputnik que será muy difícil para Google recuperar de Baidu sus posiciones.

"Si el motor de búsqueda de Google regresa a China en la forma en que funciona en todo el mundo, entonces, por supuesto, los usuarios de internet chinos lo recibirán con agrado. Pero si Google desarrolla en China solo aquellos productos que han sido aprobados por las autoridades, si, por ejemplo, se pone en marcha un motor de búsqueda que bloquee cualquier contenido indeseable desde el punto de vista de las autoridades chinas, entonces dicho producto no lo necesitamos. Si Google se rinde, tendré grandes pérdidas de reputación a ojos de los usuarios. E incluso si Google ingresa al mercado chino, la imagen de la empresa se verá afectada", afirmó Liu Xingliang.

Históricamente, Google siempre ha tenido el lema: "No seas malvado" ("don`t be evil"). En realidad, esta fue la base ética de la empresa. Cuando Google abandonó China en 2010, uno de sus fundadores, Serguéi Brin, nacido en la Unión Soviética, resumió esta base ideológica. "Me preocupa más que a otros, porque nací en un país totalitario, y lo vi todo en los primeros años de mi vida", dijo Brin. De hecho, tal vez sea una perversidad que Google abandone China solo por el rechazo de la censura por la compañía. Después de todo, hasta 2010 Google funcionó en China y filtró el contenido de acuerdo con todas las reglas del 'gran firewall chino'. Pero luego los servicios de correo Gmail se convirtieron en la meta de los ataques de hackers, Google comenzó a generar tráfico a través de los servidores de Hong Kong, libres de 'firewall'. Y se negó a obedecer las demandas de las autoridades de introducir filtros para el contenido. Pero, ¿por qué se negó?, ¿por consideraciones ideológicas o por consideraciones de seguridad corporativa y simples intereses comerciales?, la pregunta queda sin respuesta.


En general, los enfrentamientos entre los intereses comerciales de la empresa y su ética corporativa comenzaron a ocurrir con mayor frecuencia. El Project Maven del Departamento de Defensa de EEUU hizo una gran división en la empresa. Google, como parte del proyecto, desarrolla algoritmos de visión artificial (una rama de la inteligencia artificial) para analizar imágenes desde drones militares. Más de 4.000 empleados de Google firmaron una petición en contra de este proyecto. Creen que la participación de la compañía en los proyectos militares contradice el lema de "no ser malvado". Incluso dimitieron más de 10 ingenieros destacados de la compañía que no quisieron trabajar en el proyecto. Como resultado, bajo la presión de sus propios empleados, Google se negó a extender la cooperación con el Pentágono sobre el proyecto después de 2019.

Para justificar ideológicamente el deseo de Google de regresar a China, el actual director ejecutivo de la empresa Sundar Pichai presentó un nuevo eslogan: "Google para todos. Queremos estar presentes en China y brindar nuestros servicios a los chinos. Me importa que Google esté presente en todos los rincones del mundo". Sin embargo, básicamente los motivos de Google están determinados por intereses comerciales, según cree el experto chino en tecnologías de internet Liu Xingliang.

"China es la segunda economía del mundo. Naturalmente, este es un mercado extremadamente atractivo para cualquier compañía. Es cierto, hace 8 años China era atractiva. Los fundadores de la compañía aún llevan el timón. Entonces, ¿por qué la compañía cambió radicalmente su política y vuelve a regresar a China?", opinó.
La respuesta es probablemente bastante simple. Los gigantes tecnológicos del mundo, como Google y Facebook, han alcanzado cierto límite en los mercados mundiales. Las acciones de Facebook recientemente cayeron casi un 20% después de que la compañía publicara su informe trimestral. El crecimiento de los indicadores clave de la compañía, la audiencia y los ingresos, fue por primera vez inferior a las previsiones. Además, el director financiero de Facebook, David Wehner, dijo que en el futuro los indicadores del crecimiento serán aún menores.

Las empresas necesitan un gran mercado no explotado. Por lo tanto, están tratando de llegar a China, aceptando las demandas de las autoridades locales. Apple está lista para transferir los datos de los usuarios del segmento chino de iCloud a una compañía local. Facebook anunció la apertura de una sucursal en la ciudad china de Hangzhou y la intención de crear allí un centro innovador. Sin embargo, un día después, las autoridades de la República Popular China revocaron el permiso para abrir la sucursal, alegando procedimientos administrativos incorrectamente ejecutados.

Otra cuestión es que incluso a pesar de todas las concesiones, es posible que ya se haya perdido el tiempo de la lucha por el mercado chino. Las empresas chinas han creado un ecosistema autónomo de internet local. Hay análogos de Google — Baidu, de Twitter — Weibo, de Whatsapp — Wechat. Como escribió recientemente el New York Times, en la última década apareció en China una generación de personas que ni siquiera conoce la existencia de Google, Facebook, Instagram o Twitter. Los usuarios chinos reciben todo tipo de servicios similares que les proporcionan un contenido interesante. Y ni siquiera piensan en el hecho de que cierta información simplemente se bloquea por razones de censura. Este argumento se confirma por los resultados de una investigación, según The New York Times, realizado por dos científicos de la Universidad de Pekín y la Universidad Stanford. Aproximadamente 1.000 estudiantes recibieron un software para eludir los bloqueos de internet. Ninguno de ellos usó este software para ver los recursos de información extranjeros. Al menos una mitad de los estudiantes ni siquiera intentaron pasar por alto los bloqueos.

Liputan6.com, Bekasi - Asian Games 2018 cabang sepak bola bakal bergulir, Jumat (10/8/2018). Partai Laos Vs Hongkong akan menjadi partai pembuka di Stadion Patriot, Bekasi.

Timnas Hongkong U-23 diprediksi bakal menang mudah atas Laos. Pasalnya, materi pemain mereka lebih mumpuni dibandingkan sang lawan.

Satu pemain yang cukup jadi perhatian adalah Chen Chin Lung. Gelandang Serang Kitchee SC itu merupakan andalan timnas Hongkong U-23 di Asian Games kali ini.

Musim lalu di level klub, dia berhasil mendulang tiga gol dan tujuh assist dari 18 pertandingan di seluruh ajang kompetisi.

Namun demikian, Laos tetap patut diwaspadai Hongkong U23. Pasalnya, situasi Indonesia tentu lebih familiar bagi Laos ketimbang Hongkong.

Itu diprediksi akan membuat Laos bermain nyaman.

Oklahoma's Wretched Record on Wrongful Convictions

 Michelle Malkin

"Frontier justice" costs too many citizens of all races, creeds, and backgrounds their freedom and their lives. In the old days of the Wild West, vigilantes worked outside the judicial system to punish rivals regardless of their guilt or innocence. Today, outlaws operate inside the bureaucracy to secure criminal convictions at all costs.

Oklahoma -- the notorious home of "Hang 'Em High" executions -- stands out for its decades of trampling due process, subverting public disclosure, perpetuating forensic junk science, manufacturing false accusations and enabling official misconduct.

Since 1993, 35 wrongfully convicted Oklahomans have been officially exonerated, according to the National Registry of Exonerations; 15 inmates have been freed in the past decade. Almost half of the state's exonerees had been convicted of murder; 17 percent for sexual assault. The reign of prosecutorial terror and forensic error by the late Oklahoma County District Attorney Bob Macy and rogue Oklahoma City police department crime lab analyst Joyce Gilchrist resulted in at least 11 wrongful convictions, according to the Innocence Project. Those victims included:

Exoneree Curtis McCarty, who was sent to death row for a stabbing and strangulation murder after Macy withheld evidence and Gilchrist falsified blood evidence and destroyed hair evidence.

Exoneree Robert Lee Miller Jr., another death row inmate falsely convicted of two rapes and two murders based on a coerced confession and atrocious forensic misconduct involving junk analysis of semen, blood, saliva, human hair and dog hair.

Exoneree Jeffrey Pierce, who was falsely convicted of rape in 1986 based on Gilchrist's misconduct and won a $4 million settlement from Oklahoma City.

Exoneree David Bryson, who was wrongfully convicted of kidnapping and rape and freed after 18 years in prison when Gilchrist's destruction of evidence was discovered and follow-up DNA testing excluded him as the attacker.

Law enforcement and legal insiders alike have shared stories with me about good ol' boys club corruption that crosses party lines in the Sooner State. Government prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys routinely cut deals. Judges bend over backwards to preserve "harmless errors" caused by flawed investigations, faulty verdicts and clerical incompetence. Police brass retaliate against whistleblowers. And, according to one veteran cop, Oklahoma City is a hopeless "nest of incestuous nepotism."

Unlike neighboring Texas, where Dallas County prosecutors founded the first conviction integrity unit in the country (sparking the creation of 30 such agencies nationwide), not a single Oklahoma district attorney's office has established an official mechanism to review tainted convictions. Nor does Oklahoma have anything like the Texas Forensic Science Commission, which investigates professional misconduct by crime labs and other entities that conduct forensic analyses used in criminal proceedings. The Texas panel was created in the wake of the infamous scandal at the Houston Police Department crime lab a decade ago and its audits led to the more recent shutdown of the Austin PD's mess of a crime lab.

Meanwhile, no systemic reform ensued after the Macy/Gilchrist disgrace in Oklahoma. In fact, one of Gilchrist's colleagues who admitted destroying rape kit evidence at her behest was kept on for nearly 15 more years until she mysteriously retired last year amid questions about her DNA testimony.

OCPD crime lab analyst Elaine Taylor's work (challenged by at least eight independent scientists internationally over the past year) was at the center of illegal secret hearings last summer in the high-profile wrongful conviction of former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw. He is serving 263 years for sexual assault allegations solicited by police, who ignored accusers' wild contradictions and discrepancies, long rap sheets and drug-addled testimony during an out-of-control media feeding frenzy before and during trial. Taylor is the mother-in-law of Det. Rocky Gregory, the co-lead detective in the botched Holtzclaw investigation -- a glaring conflict of interest undisclosed by police and prosecutors.

Kathleen Zellner, the nation's most successful exoneration lawyer defending Holtzclaw against accusers' high-dollar civil lawsuits, quipped that she was "surprised they have not put crime scene tape around (the) OKC crime lab."

While appealing his case, Holtzclaw has faced a series of Keystone Kops blunders every step of the way, with the Court of Criminal Appeals failing to follow its own rules on publicly disclosing court protective orders; a court clerk who simply "forgot" to file a public notice of the state attorney general requesting the secret hearing transcripts and exhibits; the court admitting that Holtzclaw's public defender, James Lockard, shouldn't have been barred from the unconstitutional secret hearings; the court realizing more than a year late that its clerk had never formally filed a critical state attorney general's motion under seal; and the clerk failing to properly tender Holtzclaw's amended motion for an evidentiary hearing despite it being filed with the clerk more than a month ago.

This lackadaisical attitude toward matters of life and liberty pervades Okie culture.

Take the case of the missing sealed envelope in death row inmate Julius Jones' appeal. Jones, a basketball star at the University of Oklahoma, has served 19 years in prison for a murder he steadfastly maintains he did not commit. Recent episodes of ABC's "The Last Defense" spotlighted troubling inconsistencies in the testimony of the prosecution's star witness, who took a plea deal; ineffective counsel by overwhelmed defense attorneys who called no witnesses at trial; and the glaring failure to test a central piece of evidence -- a bandana purportedly warn by the shooter.

Last December, Jones' appellate lawyers filed an application for post-conviction relief and related motions for discovery and an evidentiary hearing to consider newly discovered evidence of racial animus by a juror. Jones' lawyers included supporting exhibits, which a court clerk instructed the legal team to place in a separate envelope labeled "protected material." Through a chain of bureaucratic mishaps, the key exhibits were somehow lost until Jones' investigator, Kim Marks, personally visited the clerk's office in June and unearthed them. The court, which had rejected Jones' appeal without seeing the missing exhibits, was forced to acknowledge two weeks ago that it couldn't ignore its clerk's "mismanagement of the exhibits" and has been forced to reconsider the case.

Chilling exit fact: Despite its wretched record on wrongful convictions the past two decades, not to mention three horrific botched executions in the last three years, Oklahoma's incompetent and corrupted criminal justice system is set to resume putting people to death next year come hell or high water.

Silence over this human rights crisis is complicity.

Anne of the Rainbow Gables?

When a classic children’s book gets turned into a TV series, it’s usually a cause for celebration. Usually.

One of the most endearing and enduring books for kids is Anne of Green Gables, a 1908 novel about a Canadian orphan who is adopted by a brother and sister on Prince Edward Island.

It’s been filmed a number of times over the years. And given the non-stop campaign to normalize the LGBT lifestyle, it should come as no surprise that the most recent version introduces several homosexual characters.

The Netflix series, titled “Anne with an E,” just began its second season. The episodes are charming—until you get to episode seven, in which Anne, her friend Diana Berry, and a boy named Cole attend a gathering at the home of Diana’s great-Aunt Josephine. It turns out the party is a “queer soiree,” featuring men dressed as women, and wearing heavy makeup, and women dressed as men. They are there to honor the memory of Josephine’s departed “partner,” Gertrude.

Looking around her, Anne exclaims to Diana, “Isn’t this the most amazing group of people!” Well, I can’t help thinking that if a sheltered young girl like Anne actually encountered cross-dressing men and women in 1908, she would be shocked and probably frightened—not delighted.

In a scene that takes place in Aunt Josephine’s bedroom, Anne observes a novel on Josephine’s nightstand. Gertrude was reading it the year before. Josephine tells her the books “sit just where she left them.” Anne processes this remark, and then, enlightened, says, “That’s what you meant by, in your way, you were married,” she says.

“Yes,” Josephine replies.

Diana—who is nonplussed by her discovery of her aunt’s relationship with Gertrude, tells Anne their love affair was “unnatural.”

But the boy Cole—a character who is invented for the TV series—soon straightens her out. “If your aunt lived her life feeling … that she was broken, defective, or unnatural, and one day she met someone that made her realize that wasn’t true . . .shouldn’t we be happy for her?”

Cole later confesses to Aunt Josephine that he thinks he is “like you and Gertrude.” Josephine tells him, “You have a life of such joy before you.”

And in case you missed the gay-is-good point of the episode, the writers have Anne asking another character: “How can there be anything wrong with a life if it’s spent with a person you love?”

To answer Anne’s question: Plenty. People have suffered greatly through inappropriate “love”: For instance, a child whose father decided to love someone other than his wife, or a child who is loved, in an erotic way, by an adult.

It’s unlikely that Anne would ever have heard a sermon about homosexuality in her day and age. If she had, she would have known what scripture teaches about homosexual relationships: that they run counter to God’s plan for human flourishing.

The gay-themed episode of “Anne with an E” has led many parents to turn the channel. As one of them wrote on the Facebook page of a Christian film review site, “The gay agenda completely ruined a perfectly heartwarming and uplifting story.” Another wrote, “I just want wholesome–and no agenda.”

Amen to that. Look, the secular world understands the importance of worldview teaching just as Christians do—and often teaches through films and TV programs.

It will become harder and harder to avoid the “gay is good” message in the media. Which is why, as John Stonestreet says, we need to train our children to ask questions about the ideas and characters they encounter. Help them discern truth from error. Because the truth of how God designed human sexuality remains, no matter how LGBT-saturated entertainment gets.

Underreported: The Santa Fe School Shooting Survivors the Media Ignored

Grace, a senior at Santa Fe High School, located an hour outside of Houston, was looking forward to cruising through her last few days of high school. That day, she walked into the band room, and told a friend she was going to take a nap because she was sore from playing in the powder puff game the night before.

She woke up to commotion in the hallway, and walked into the hallway to see what was going on. “I thought there was a fight going on, and I’m nosy,” she said.

Grace opened the door to see a bunch of people screaming: “Then I heard a really loud noise, and that’s when I saw somebody go down.”

“I don’t know if it was a kid, I don’t know if it was a teacher—but somebody fell.”

Grace had witnessed yet another mass school shooting in the United States. The shooting at her high school occurred just over three months after Parkland, where a 19-year-old man allegedly gunned down students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, murdering 17 students and teachers.

The Parkland students have been credited for changing the gun debate. Students such as David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez took on the National Rifle Association, launched the #NeverAgain movement, and organized rallies and walkouts across the country.

At Santa Fe High School, 10 people died—eight students and two teachers. The suspected shooter, a 17-year-old male student at the school, allegedly used a stolen shotgun and revolver from his father. He also allegedly brought in explosive devices.

Grace was lucky to make it out alive. The band hall, where she and her fellow band students took cover, is located right next to the art rooms, where the shooting took place.

“We could hear all the gunshots,” she said. “We could feel it in the floor.”

After a while, the shooting stopped and law enforcement arrived to escort Grace and the remaining students out from the band room, where they were hiding in the cement air conditioning control room.

“They said, ‘Don’t look down because you’re going to see a lot,’” Grace said. “Nobody really can prepare you for that.”

Walking in a single-file line, Grace saw pools of blood and kids laying on the floor. “Dead kids,” she said.

“That was the first time that it hit me. Even though I had seen what I’d seen, it hadn’t hit me.”

“I remember accidentally stepping in some of the blood,” Grace added. “I looked down and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I don’t even know whose this is.’”

Before she even made it out safely, Grace said she was met with a handful of reporters asking for first-hand accounts. She said they found her location on social media.

“I was being contacted while I was in shelter by news outlets trying to figure out what was going on, when I didn’t even know if I was going to make it out of there alive,” she said.

Grace, 18, said she understands that it’s their job. “But let us take some time to process the fact that 10 of our peers have just died. Let us go to these funerals and mourn, and understand that our lives are completely changed now.”

Once she did engage, Grace said she didn’t feel the media treated her or her community fairly.

“They came to our town expecting us to throw these rallies, and march for our lives, and lay on the ground with posters. That’s not what we’re doing,” she said. “We don’t want to wait around and protest for change. We want change, but we don’t want outsiders coming in and forcing it upon us.”

‘It’s Not Solely a Gun Issue’

“Santa Fe is a very country town that probably has more livestock than people,” Grace said, describing the Galveston County town that’s home to some 12,200 people. “Most of everybody here has grown up with guns, or seen a gun, or shot a gun.”

A small handful of people in Santa Fe responded to the shooting with calls for gun reform. But most, it appears, stood firm in their support for the Second Amendment.

“I think what people need to realize is that it’s not solely a gun issue,” said Grace, adding:

You can’t make stricter gun laws or stuff like that and expect it all to go away. People will break the rules if they want to. It’s illegal for a 17-year-old to have a gun. It’s illegal to kill people. It’s illegal to have a gun on campus. But people still do it.

So making stricter gun laws isn’t going to stop people from doing it. Even if you were to take guns off this entire earth, somebody could come in with a knife. Somebody could put anthrax in all the ketchup packets in school. It’s going to happen regardless if somebody has the motive.

“This boy tried making bombs,” Annabelle O’Day, 18, another survivor of the Santa Fe shooting, told The Daily Signal. “If there were bombs that had gone off, you blame the bomber. If there is a drunk-driver accident, you blame the drunk driver. You blame the person. You blame the human. But if it’s a shooter, you blame the gun. That’s what society is doing here.”

It’s because of their support for the Second Amendment that, compared to Parkland, many say the media has ignored them.

“You look at the mainstream media … after the Parkland shooting, [and] it was round-the-clock coverage of the students calling for aggressive gun control because that happens to be the political agenda of most of the media,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told The Daily Signal in an interview in May.

“In this case, where the students aren’t calling for that, suddenly … the media isn’t interested in covering it,” he added.

“I think everyone knows that the media portrays a certain political agenda that they choose to go with—it’s that simple,” said Steve Rose, a history teacher who survived the shooting. “It’s not a political agenda that the majority of Santa Fe adheres to. I want all schools safe. That’s it. We can agree to disagree on how to go about doing it. I’m open to different solutions, but our schools have to be safe.”

“A lot of us do believe that there is a problem,” added Annabelle. “It’s just that what we believe in being the problem is not the same as media. A lot of us do want change. Most everyone’s change is just not gun reform, but nobody sticks around long enough to ask us what that is.”

‘I Think We Need to Lock Doors’

“If you take the gun issue away, we’re all fighting for the same thing,” said Grace, speaking about the Santa Fe students and the Parkland students. “We all want change.”

Instead of focusing on guns, Grace supports a national dialogue surrounding school safety.

“I think we need to lock doors. This door that [the shooter] came in was a bus entrance that was unlocked,” she said. “I think we need more police presence. We have three school cops at my high school and I see them sometimes in passing periods, but mainly I only see them at lunch.”

Beyond that, Grace supports the idea of arming teachers.

“It shouldn’t have to be an option, but unfortunately we’re at a place where it has to be an option,” she said.

Across the country, hundreds of schools already have armed teachers and staff. In Texas, some public school systems have been arming teachers and administrators for more than a decade. But in the wake of high-profile mass shootings, the idea has become a political and emotional sticking point.

For Grace, the prospect is personal. After graduating college, she hopes to become a teacher:

Protecting your students from a school shooter should never be part of the job description. It should never be your job is to teach the curriculum, and test your students, and also be willing to take a bullet for them. That should never be the case, but I’m willing to take that risk because who wouldn’t?

Rose, who began his teaching career in 1979, said he’s thought “long and hard” about arming teachers.

“I don’t think that’s the end-all by any stretch. I don’t think it’s the magic answer. But I will say this. I truly wanted that pistol in my hand [on that day].”

“Just speaking generally for me, I would do whatever training is involved,” he added. “All that would have to be done, but let’s face it, it’s another line of defense against evil.”

Annabelle, who strongly supports Second Amendment rights, worked with two friends to start a nonprofit, Hearts United for Kindness. The goal is to spread kindness and love while raising awareness for mental health.

“We believe that mental health is a big deal. We have to change people’s hearts and people’s minds, how people see each other,” Annabelle said.

‘We Are Thoughts And Prayers’

Nearly three months later, Santa Fe is still grappling with the fallout of such a massive tragedy in the rural, small town.

“You drive past the high school and you think, ‘Why us? How did this happen?’” said Annabelle. “A lot of us are Christians, so a lot of us have been leaning on God a lot during this time.”

Some now mock the role of “thoughts and prayers” in responding to school shootings. But Annabelle said that “most everyone in this town does want thoughts and prayers.”

“We are thoughts and prayers,” she said, describing the Santa Fe community.

This fall, both Annabelle and Grace will attend college.

Grace, battling PTSD from the shooting, had to quit her summer job at a restaurant because the dishes banging in the backroom reminded her of gunshots. Now, she’s unsure how she’ll pay for tuition:

It’s hard to think that that happened at our school because we’re such a tight-knit community. It’s hard to think that the fine arts wing is never going to be the same, the students in the fine arts wing are never going to be the same. We saw things that people shouldn’t ever have to see.

Although things will never be the same, Rose will return to Santa Fe this fall to teach for his 12th year.

“Santa Fe will bounce back. We will be stronger than ever because to not do so, allows evil to win. No one in our community will even consider that.”

More fake news from CNN, the fake news channel. ARE Australians racist?

He offers very flimsy evidence. One could easily cite counter-evidence for his assertions -- such as the high rate of partnering between young Chinese females and white Australian men -- or the high rate of immigration from non-European backgrounds that is regularly accepted.  Both of those are mass phenomena, not just isolated examples -- and are as such much more informative examples


AN AUSTRALIAN journalist has made waves after penning a controversial article questioning whether we are “becoming more racist” as a nation.

Ben Westcott, a digital news producer for CNN International who is based in Hong Kong, asked, “Is Australia becoming a more racist country?” in the article which was published yesterday.

In the divisive piece, he refers to the recent furore surrounding African gangs in Victoria, backlash to immigration and our growing population and a sensational interview with far-right agitator Blair Cottrell to argue his point.

Thanks to those factors, Westcott claimed “questions are emerging over whether Australia is a more racist country than it would like to believe”.

He said the fact an interview with convicted arsonist and neo-Nazi Blair Cottrell was ever aired on Sky News “has raised questions about Australia’s attitude to race”, and also quoted Australia’s outgoing Race Discrimination Commissioner Tim Soutphommasane, who recently said our “racial harmony” was under threat.

“For the most part we are a highly cohesive and harmonious society but that doesn’t deny for a moment that racism continues to be a significant social problem,” Mr Soutphommasane said.

Mr Westcott went on to cite an April study from Australian research company Essential, which revealed 64 per cent of those surveyed said immigration levels over the past decade had been “too high”.

He also claimed while there was a great deal of hysteria surrounding African gangs, “crimes involving Sudanese residents account for just 1 per cent of Victoria’s total criminal activity, with the vast majority of crimes committed by Australian-born residents”.

Unsurprisingly, many Australians were angered by Westcott’s piece, including Liberal Party pollster Mark Textor, who slammed the article as “profound, profound idiocy”.

What profound, profound idiocy. One fuckwit is interviewed on a show nobody watches & Australia turns on it’s axis? Australians are now all racist? FFS. The media’s prism is it’s own brown rear-freckle. Luckily the rest of hardworking Australia goes on it’s own decent way.

Others took to Twitter to brand the story as “absolute garbage”, with many suggesting the US-owned company should look at America’s racial problems before pointing the finger at other countries.

“You need only step outside your own nations (sic) door CNN if you want to write an expose on racism …,” one Twitter user posted, while another added: “We’ve embraced many people from all over the world. Most of them enjoy our easy going lifestyle. The minority that don’t accuse us of racism.”

But Westcott’s piece also had its fair share of [Leftist] supporters, with many claiming Australia did have a racism problem we needed to address.

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Sepak bola menjadi cabor pertama yang bergulir pada Asian Games 2018. Duel Laos Vs Hong Kong berlangsung pertama di Stadion Patriot, Bekasi, Jumat (10/8/2018).

Timnas Hong Kong U-23 diprediksi bakal menang mudah atas Laos. Pasalnya, materi pemain mereka lebih mumpuni dibandingkan sang lawan.

Satu pemain yang cukup jadi perhatian adalah Chen Chin Lung. Gelandang Serang Kitchee SC itu merupakan andalan timnas Hongkong U-23 di Asian Games kali ini.

Musim lalu di level klub, dia berhasil mendulang tiga gol dan tujuh assist dari 18 pertandingan di seluruh ajang kompetisi.

Namun demikian, Laos tetap patut diwaspadai Hongkong U23. Pasalnya, situasi Indonesia tentu lebih familiar bagi Laos ketimbang Hongkong.

Itu diprediksi akan membuat Laos bermain nyaman.

Presiden Jokowi akhirnya memilih Ma'ruf Amin sebagai calon wakil presiden (cawapres) pada pemilihan umum (Pemilu) 2019. Di lain sisi, Sedangkan Prabowo Subianto memilih Sandiaga Uno sebagai calon wakil presiden.

Mengutip laman Bloomberg, keputusan Presiden Jokowi memilih Ma’ruf Amin dinilai meningkatkan tawaran pemilihan kembali dan akan hilangkan ketidakpastian di kalangan investor.

Jokowi memilih Ma’ruf Amin yang juga sebagai Ketua MUI dapat gagalkan upaya potensial oleh kubu oposisi untuk pengaruhi pemilih atas dasar agama.

Managing Director and Head of Equity Capital Market Samuel Internasional, Harry Su menuturkan, kedua kandidat wakil presiden telah mengejutkan pasar. Reaksi investor dan sentimen pasar akan dibentuk oleh jajak pendapat ke depan. "Kami akan perlu melihat bagaimana millennium dan populasi wanita akan memilih," ujar Harry.

Teller menghitung mata uang dolar di penukaran uang di Jakarta, Jumat (20/4). Nilai tukar rupiah terhadap dolar Amerika Serikat (AS) mengalami pelemahan. (Liputan6.com/Angga Yuniar)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Sebelumnya, pergerakan nilai tukar rupiah terhadap dolar Amerika Serikat (AS) cenderung stabil menjelang akhir pekan ini.

Data ekonomi AS dan pendaftaran calon presiden dan calon wakil presiden Indonesia dalam pemilihan presiden 2019 membayangi pergerakan rupiah.

Berdasarkan kurs referensi Jakarta Interbank Spot Dollar Rate (Jisdor), rupiah melemah tipis 15 poin ke posisi 14.437 per dolar AS pada 10 Agustus 2018 dari periode Kamis, 9 Agustus 2018 di posisi 14.422 per dolar AS.

Sementara itu, berdasarkan data Bloomberg, rupiah dibuka melemah ke posisi 14.439 pada Jumat pagi dari penutupan perdagangan kemarin di posisi 14.416 per dolar AS. Pada Jumat siang, rupiah bergerak menguat tipis ke posisi 14.435 per dolar AS. Rupiah bergerak di kisaran 14.435-14.444 per dolar AS.

Ekonom PT Bank Permata Tbk, Josua Pardede menuturkan, rupiah cenderung stabil usai menguat pada perdagangan kemarin. Hal itu ditopang aliran dana investor masuk ke pasar obligasi dan jelang pengumuman calon wakil presiden dalam pemilihan presiden 2019 pada Kamis, 9 Agustus 2018.

Josua menuturkan, pergerakan rupiah juga dipengaruhi kondisi eksternal. Hal ini dolar AS menguat setelah sempat tertekan. Dolar AS menguat didukung data ekonomi AS. Selain itu, pemerintah China akan membalas AS dengan mengenakan tarif untuk sejumlah produk impor AS.

"Memang rupiah tergantung dari kondisi global. Sebagian besar mata uang sedikit melemah,” kata dia saat dihubungi Liputan6.com, Jumat pekan ini.

Dia menambahkan, pelaku pasar juga menanti data inflasi AS. Menurut Josua, data ekonomi AS itu akan cukup berpengaruh karena berdampak terhadap pergerakan dolar AS. Sementara itu dari internal, pelaku pasar juga menanti neraca pembayaran. Diperkirakan defisit neraca pembayaran melebar dengan kecenderungan 2,8 - 3 persen terhadap produk domestik bruto (PDB).

"Rupiah akan bergerak di kisaran 14.400-14.475 per dolar AS pada Jumat pekan ini," kata dia.

Josua menambahkan, ada pencalonan presiden dan wakil presiden juga tidak terlalu memberikan kejutan berarti. Oleh karena itu, pasar tidak terlalu negatif. Selain itu, volatilitas nilai tukar rupiah juga sudah menurun dibandingkan Juni.

"Rupiah relatif menguat dibandingkan Juni," kata dia.

Jakarta - Mantan kapten Skuat Garuda, Ponaryo Astaman, optimistis Timnas Indonesia U-23 punya kans melangkah jauh pada Asian Games 2018. Meskipun demikian, dia meminta Skuat Garuda Muda harus selalu memasang kewaspadaan penuh.

Timnas Indonesia U-23 akan mengawali kiprah di Asian Games 2018 pada Minggu (12/8/2018). Berada satu grup dengan Palestina, China Taipei, Laos, dan Hong Kong, banyak yang menilai tim asuhan Luis Milla ini punya peluang besar lolos ke fase knockout.

Namun, Ponaryo Astaman tak ingin Hansamu Yama Pranata dkk terlena. Dia meminta tim asuhan Luis Milla tetap waspada terhadap setiap lawan yang harus dihadapi.

"Bicara di atas kertas, Timnas Indonesia U-23 memiliki kans yang cukup terbuka untuk lolos fase grup. Hanya saja, mereka tetap harus waspada. Tetap yakin dan optimistis bisa lolos dari grup, di saat yang bersamaan akan lebih baik fokus dari pertandingan yang satu ke pertandingan berikutnya," ujar Ponaryo Astaman.

Bicara soal harapannya terhadap Timnas Indonesia U-23, Ponaryo ingin Timnas Indonesia U-23 bisa melaju sejauh mungkin. "Tentu harapan saya mereka bisa meraih hasil maksimal. Kalau bisa sampai semifinal seperti target yang diberikan sangat baik, dan kalau bisa sampai ke final tentu sangat bagus," ujarnya.

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Sepak bola menjadi cabor pertama yang bergulir pada Asian Games 2018. Duel Laos Vs Hong Kong berlangsung pertama di Stadion Patriot, Bekasi, Jumat (10/8/2018).

Timnas Hong Kong U-23 diprediksi bakal menang mudah atas Laos. Pasalnya, materi pemain mereka lebih mumpuni dibandingkan sang lawan.

Satu pemain yang cukup jadi perhatian adalah Chen Chin Lung. Gelandang Serang Kitchee SC itu merupakan andalan timnas Hongkong U-23 di Asian Games kali ini.

Musim lalu di level klub, dia berhasil mendulang tiga gol dan tujuh assist dari 18 pertandingan di seluruh ajang kompetisi.

Namun demikian, Laos tetap patut diwaspadai Hongkong U23. Pasalnya, situasi Indonesia tentu lebih familiar bagi Laos ketimbang Hongkong.

Itu diprediksi akan membuat Laos bermain nyaman.

          Good to the last scale: Creamery hawking fish cones opens in W’burg      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

It’s good lick!

An ice-cream shop whose fish-shaped cones are a social-media sensation recently opened in Williamsburg, making it even easier for locals to pick up the mouth-watering — and eye-catching — dessert inspired by a symbol of good luck in Japan.

A founder of creamery Taiyaki NYC — whose name is a combination of the Japanese words “tai,” which translates to sea bream, a species considered the king of fish in the Asian country, and “yaki,” which translates to fried — said he fell in love with the symbolic sea creature on frequent trips to Japan, and decided to transform it into an edible waffle cone stuffed high with swirls of soft ice cream.

“I travel back to Asia quite often, and fell in love with the concept in Japanese culture,” said Jimmy Chen, who was born in New York City after his parents immigrated from Hong Kong. “We strive to create a great experience that’s aesthetically interesting.”
Chen and his five co-founders — who are all first- and second-generation Asian-Americans, whose families immigrated from countries including Japan, China, and Taiwan — opened their store’s first outpost in Manhattan in 2016, before expanding to a second location in faraway Florida the next year.

And last month, they opened their third location on Bedford Avenue between Grand and S. First streets, in what Chen described as a unique storefront in a trendy neighborhood that compliments his creamery’s trending creations, which have drawn more than 85,000 people to follow Taiyaki on Instagram — a formidable audience that keeps business booming, he said.

“I think we’re truly in the golden age of social media. Everyone is on their phones, everyone has to take a picture,” Chen said. “Williamsburg is bustling. I personally come here frequently for the hipster community, for Supreme, and Smorgasburg. There’s a tremendous amount of activity.”

Customers can order one of the fish cones filled with vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, matcha, or black-sesame ice cream, or some combinations of those flavors, for $8 a pop, which includes a drizzle of syrups including caramel or chocolate and up to three free toppings such as crushed cookies, mochi balls, and sprinkles, with additional toppings costing 50 cents each.

For the same price, patrons can also choose from a number of “signature” cones that include a black sesame–matcha swirl option called “Straight Outta Japan” and the mythical “Unicorn” variety, which features a rainbow-sprinkles covered vanilla-strawberry swirl topped with gummy ears and a horn.

Horned-horse fans can also splurge on a “Unicorn Float,” a $10 milk-shake topped with whipped cream and sprinkles that comes with a small inner tube shaped like the magical beast, and looks just as good in photos as its cone counterpart, according to Chen.

“Last year, it was our most-popular ice cream — we’re really staying on top of trends,” he said.

And the six owners have yet to dream up their next internet-breaking confection, but are hard at work experimenting on new frozen sensations, Chen assured.

“We’re definitely in the lab,” he said.

Try a fish cone yourself at Taiyaki NYC [294 Bedford Ave. between Grand and S. First streets in Williamsburg, (917) 909–1856, www.taiyakinyc.com]. Mon–Thurs 1 to 10 pm, Fri 1 to 11 pm, Sat noon to 11 pm, Sun noon to 10 pm.

KHIDMAT PENGHANTARAN LEBIH PANTAS KURANG SATU JAM DENGAN LALAMOVE, KINI DI HUJUNG JARI | Pernah tak masa korang duduk kat rumah atau ada kat mana-mana lepas tu teringin nak makan sesuatu tapi ada kekangan daripada faktor cuaca, pengangkutan, lokasi ataupun malas? Pernah tak korang berharap beli sesuatu secara atas talian dan boleh guna secepat mungkin atau paling tepatnya dalam hari yang sama atau mungkin dalam tempoh kurang daripada satu jam?



Ini ada berita baik untuk korang, atau mungkin untuk Sally juga sebenarnya...Lalamove, pembekal perkhidmatan penghantaran atas permintaan (on-demand), kini telah dilancarkan secara rasminya di Malaysia setelah mengumumkan kemasukkannya ke Malaysia dua bulan lepas. Kalau korang nak tau, Lalamove telah digunapakai secara meluas di beberapa buah negara Asia yang lain seperti China (hampir 100 bandar), Hong Kong, Indonesia (Jakarta), Thailand, Taiwan, Filipina, Vietnam dan Singapura.

Semalam Sally telah hadir ke majlis pelancaran mereka dan belajar secara am tentang penggunaan aplikasi mereka. Memang teruja la sebab fikir banyak benda boleh guna aplikasi ini, semua jenis makanan dah ada dalam kepala..tapi jangan salah faham tau, bukan makanan je boleh, segala jenis servis atau barang pun boleh (tertakluk kepada terma dan syarat).



Dengan adanya Lalamove, penghantaran barang yang dibeli diukur berdasarkan minit, bukan lagi hari. Kepantasan Lalamove dibolehkan oleh pemadanan pemandu-pemandu dengan para pengguna menerusi aplikasi Lalamove dalam tempoh beberapa saat sahaja.

Penghantaran jarak dekat boleh dipenuhi dalam tempoh satu jam dan membolehkan pengguna Lalamove untuk mengembangkan perniagaan dengan pesat tanpa dibebani masalah logistik mahupun kos operasi yang tinggi. Buat masa sekarang mereka hanya menyediakan perkhidmatan di sekitar Kuala Lumpur dan Klang Valley, tapi dalam masa yang terdekat akan berkembang di Penang dan juga Johor.



Macam dalam gambar ni, mereka mencuba untuk membeli makanan daripada sebuah restoran dan terus dihantar kepada pelanggan dalam masa yang singkat. Lepas ini takde la istilah teringin ke mengidam ke..semudah gerakkan jari di aplikasi Lalamove dan boleh dapat apa yang kita mahukan sepantasnya.

Buat masa ini hanya ada kereta dan motosikal sahaja, lepas ni akan ada van dan trak sebagai pilihan jika korang nak hantar sesuatu yang besar dan lebih berat.



Setelah menamatkan proses pengujian selama sebulan di bandaraya Kuala Lumpur, Lalamove telah mencapai keputusan yang memberangsangkan. Perkhidmatan mereka berjaya merekodkan tempoh penghantaran kurang 36 minit untuk jarak sehingga 5km, manakala bagi jarak sehingga 10km pula Lalamove merekodkan tempoh purata 50 minit sahaja. Secara puratanya, mereka telah menyempurnakan hampir 300 penghantaran setiap hari.

Lalamove memanfaatkan teknologi internet, aplikasi mudah alih dan ekonomi perkongsian ( sharing economy ) untuk menyediakan perkhidmatan penghantaran atas permintaan ( on-demand ) sebagai satu platform penghantaran bersepadu yang mampu memadankan pengguna dan pemandu dengan sekelip mata.

Platform penghantaran Lalamove direka dengan pemantauan GPS masa nyata ( real-time ), perkhidmatan 24-jam, tujuh hari seminggu malah sistem penilaian pemandu bagi memastikan para pengguna sentiasa mempunyai gambaran berkenaan penghantaran mereka.



Caj perkhidmatan Lalamove bermula dari RM5 untuk penghantaran segera. Setiap penghantaran dikenakan harga berdasarkan jarak penghantaran dan bukan berdasarkan berat parcel. Lepas ni dah mudah la nak membeli secara atas talian.

          Timnas Indonesia Diharapkan Tidak Kejar Target Muluk di Asian Games 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Timnas Indonesia U-23 akan menjalani duel sebenarnya saat turun di cabor sepak Bola Asian Games 2018 yang sudah dimulai Minggu (12/8/2018). Indonesia akan menjalani laga pertama penyisihan grup A melawan Taiwan atau China Taipei di Stadion Patriot, Bekasi.

Dilihat dari calon lawan-lawan Timnas Indonesia di penyisihan grup, kans Indonesia masih sulit ditebak. Kecuali Laos yang sering berjumpa, Hong Kong, Palestina dan Taiwan masih sulit ditebak kekuatannya saat melawan Indonesia.

Legenda Timnas Indonesia, Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto berharap Hansamu Yama dan kawan-kawan tidak mengejar target muluk di Asian Games 2018. Dia berharap pemain Indonesia bisa tampil lebih lepas.

"Fase grup insyaallah lolos. Kalau semifinal Asian Games kita doakan saja. Yang penting lolos dulu gak usah muluk-muluk," kata Kurniawan kepada wartawan.

"Anggap saja setiap pertandingan itu final. Jangan berpikir jadi juara grup dulu, yang penting Timnas Indonesia lolos fase grup dulu."

Striker Timnas Indonesia era 1990-an ini menilai Luis Milla punya banyak pilihan pemain. Ini membuat pelatih Indonesia aasal Spanyol itu lebih lebih leluasa menentukan pilihan.

"Luis Milla dan staf pelatih punya banyak pilihan, gak begitu pusing. Sekarang yang dipanggil ke Timnas Indonesia harus benar-benar cocok dengan strategi dia. Ujian sebenarnya di sini, Asian Games," katanya.

Dia menilai pemilihan pemain Timnas Indonesia di Asian Games 2018 jangan dijadikan polemik. Milla sudah memilih 20 pemain untuk Asian Games nanti, meski masih mungkin berubah.

"Pelatih menilai pemain bukan dari hal teknis saja tapi ada faktor lain. Ada hal lain yang mungkin tidak diumumkan ke publik. Masyarakat diharapkan memberi dukungan, jangan ada polemik soal pemain yang dipilih," katanya.

Skuat Timnas Indonesia

Kiper: Andritany Ardhiyasa, Awan Setho

          Hadapi Taiwan, Timnas Indonesia U-23 Usung Kekuatan Penuh      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Ricky Fajrin siap membela Timnas Indonesia U-23 pada laga pembuka Grup A Asian Games 2018 melawan Taiwan. Partisipasi Ricky Fajrin sebelumnya diragukan karena cedera lutut.

"Dia memang sempat merasakan sakit. Namun setelah diperiksa, dokter bilang tidak ada masalah. Ricky juga siap untuk tampil," tutur asisten pelatih timnas, Bima Sakti, dilansir Antara.

Timnas Indonesia menghadapi Taiwan di Stadion Patriot, Sabtu (11/8/2018). Selain Taiwan, anak asuh Luis Milla juga harus bersaing melawan Palestina, Hong Kong, dan Laos pada Asian Games 2018.

Untuk event empat tahunan tersebut, timnas menjalani pemusatan latihan di Gianyar, Bali. Mereka baru bertolak ke Bekasi hari ini.

Sementara Taiwan sudah tiba di Indonesia sejak Selasa (7/8/2018). Pelatih Taiwan Peng Wu Song menyertakan tiga pemain senior yakni penjaga gawang Pan Wen Chieh serta dua bek wang Rui dan Chen Ting Yang.

Antisipasi Permainan Lawan

Seluruh pemain siap tempur seiring pulihnya Ricky Fajrin. Pada laga itu, timnas sudah mengantisipasi gaya bermain lawan.

"Kami sudah menganalisis bagaimana Taiwan bermain. Oleh karena itu, pada sesi latihan terakhir di Bali kami menekankan bagaimana mengatur pertahanan karena mereka akan banyak melakukan crossing," ujar Bima Sakti.

          Legend of the Mountain - Shan zhong zhuan qi, King Hu (1979)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

He Yun-Tsing est missionné par le monastère Haiying pour recopier un canon bouddhiste qui permettrait de libérer les âmes des défunts. Pour mener à bien cette tâche, les moines lui suggèrent de se retirer dans un endroit isolé au cœur de la montagne. Yun-Tsing est alors accueilli à bras ouverts par les quelques habitants de la contrée. Mais le mystérieux canon bouddhiste devient rapidement la cible de toutes les convoitises...

Après un début de carrière marqué par les succès immenses de L’Hirondelle d’or (1966) Dragon Gate Inn (1967), King Hu avait rencontré son premier vrai échec A Touchof Zen jusque-là son œuvre la plus ambitieuse. La maniaquerie du réalisateur étendant le tournage sur des années, une sortie en salle ratée coupant le film en deux parties et un style à contre-courant de la mode d’alors - du film de sabre en costume  alors que la tendance est un kung-fu contemporain de Bruce Lee - seront les causes de ce sérieux coup d’arrêt. King Hu parvient néanmoins à rebondir en signant un accord avec la Golden Harvest qui s’engage à coproduire ses deux films suivants. La contrainte sera cependant de proposer des œuvres plus accessibles et dans le goût du public. King Hu réalise alors L’Auberge du Printemps (1973) troisième volet de sa trilogie des auberges mais plus porté sur le kung-fu que les combats de sabre, et le film d’aventures Pirates et Guerriers (1975). 

Pierre Rissient découvre à Hong Kong A Touch of Zen dans une version tronquée dont il ressort néanmoins éblouit et convaincra le Festival de Cannes de le sélectionner. Le film y reçoit en 1975 le Grand Prix de la Commission Supérieure Technique ce qui donne lui donne une seconde vie en occident et apporte une reconnaissance internationale à King Hu. Dès lors chez lui renaît l’idée de tourner à nouveau un film de cette ampleur et ambition. Après Taiwan qui servit de mécène et terre d’accueil à tous ses films après L’Hirondelle d’or, le salut viendra cette fois de Corée du Sud. Le pays développe alors une politique de financement pour les réalisateurs étrangers voulant tourner sur place, avec pour obligation d’engager des équipes locales et surtout - pour se protéger des opportunistes profiteurs – d’y produire non pas un, mais deux films. King Hu réalisera donc dans la foulée Raining in the Mountain (1979) et Legend of the Mountain (1979) entre 1977 et 1978.

Legend of the Mountainest un projet sensiblement différent des précédents films de King Hu. Jusque-là les intrigues de ses films historiques se déroulaient le plus souvent sous la Dynastie chinoise Ming (1368 – 1644, période dont il était une vraie figure d’autorité historique) alors que Legend of the Mountain se passe sous la Dynastie Song (960 – 1127). Ce changement est dû à la rencontre de Chun Ling, universitaire chinoise installée aux Etats-Unis et qui deviendra son épouse. Spécialiste de la littérature chinoise, Chun Ling s’essaie à l’écriture de scénario pour Legend of the Mountain qu’elle situe donc à la Dynastie Song, période propice aux récits de fantômes qui la passionnent. 

Ce sera la première incursion de King Hu dans le fantastique, forcé ainsi de délaisser les intrigues d’espionnage à tiroir typique de l’agitation politique de la Dynastie Ming. La réinvention sera donc à la fois narrative et formelle. Le postulat est un archétype du conte traditionnel chinois mais où s’entremêle la dimension de duperie typique de la trilogie des Auberges. Le jeune lettré He Yun-Tsing (Shih Chun) est ainsi missionné pour traduire un canon bouddhiste dont les possibles pouvoirs surnaturels vont attirer de dangereux et séduisant adversaire qu’il ne saura pas toujours identifier. 

Le final halluciné de A Touch of Zen préparait en quelque sorte l’approche purement sensorielle adopté par King Hu dans Legend of the Mountain. Dès les premières scènes, l’ampleur du cinémascope magnifiant la beauté des décors naturels et la gamme chromatique stylisée de la photo d’Henry Chan nous envoute. La dilatation du temps dans le voyage de Yun-Tsing et le passage subtil de couleur chaudes estivales/automnales à une texture plus froide illustre la notion de cheminement intérieur du personnage mais aussi la bascule dans le surnaturel. King Hu l’affirme symboliquement (l’étrange s’amorçant après un moment de somnolence du héros) et géographiquement avec la traversée d’une rivière nous faisant passer de l’autre côté. Dès lors toute les rencontres reposent sur la duplicité où les fantômes s’exposent ou se dissimulent avec ruse. Comme dans les précédents films de King Hu (et surtout la trilogie des Auberges), c’est dans le huis-clos et la beuverie anodine que les équilibres se font. Mais alors que dans ses intrigues d’espionnages ce type de moment voyait les protagonistes se jauger intelligemment, ici c’est pour laisser Yun-Tsing sous l’emprise de la belle Melody (Hsu Feng). 

L’affrontement avec les forces occultes laissent désormais le héros démunis, ce que représente d’ailleurs Shih Chun dans les différents rôles qu’il tient chez King Hu : bretteur rusé et émérite dans Dragon Gate Inn, déjà lettré mais redoutable stratège dans A Touch of Zen et désormais victime sans défense des fantômes venus le tourmenter dans Legend of the Mountain. Le film n’appartenant plus au genre martial, les joutes sont remplacées par des démonstrations et duels de magie noire. Certaines offrent parmi les séquences les plus hypnotiques du film avec un sortilège se déclenchant par jeu frénétique de tambour. King Hu se détache alors de sa veine contemplative à travers un montage heurté et une mise en scène chaotique qui illustre soit l’emprise de ce tambour infernal, soit l’affrontement avec une force adverse magnant les mêmes pouvoirs dans d’autres desseins. Les subtilités et beautés des décors naturels se révèlent toujours de façons magnifiées mais tangibles quand l’expression des sentiments est pures, et la splendeur s’orne toujours d’une once d’artifice quand la duplicité entre en jeu. Ainsi la ballade entre Yun-Tsing et Nuage (Sylvia Chiang) donne dans un romantisme introspectif superbe et jamais ressenti lors d’instants équivalents avec Mélodie. 

L’éclat ensoleillé et diaphane durant la traversée d’un pont, les inserts naturalistes entrecoupant une scène d’amour (première scène de sexe filmée par King Hu d’ailleurs, tout cela traduit une idée de rêve et d’illusion, de tromperie destinée à s’approprier le canon bouddhiste. La façon de King Hu transforme son décor joue également sur cette approche. Les changements d’atmosphère où se devine la patience de l’esthète maniaque (la nuances incroyables des couleurs du ciel, la capture d’instants de vie précieux de la faune et la flore) laissent place à l’irruption de fumigènes de couleurs qui transforment métamorphose totalement le cadre dès que la magie s’immisce explicitement lors des affrontements. Les effets visuels subtils de transparences et disparitions qui semaient le doute dans cette idée de songe cèdent à une imagerie chargée et spectaculaire dans la dernière partie. Ce schisme servait aussi en pratique à King Hu pour créer une vraie différence esthétique chez le spectateur qui avait vu Raining in the Mountain tourné dans exactement les mêmes lieux.

Le féminisme au cœur des thèmes du réalisateur est toujours là tout en s’exprimant de façon différente. Hsu Feng, actrice fétiche de King Hu, représente toujours chez la fougue et la détermination juvénile au féminin. Il en va de même ici mais sous un jour inquiétant puisque cette volonté ne sert que le pouvoir et la vengeance. Le charisme de la comédienne parvient à faire de cette méchante un être détestable et une victime. Ses maux passés révélant une forme de patriarcat de l’autorité chinoise mais les moyens employés pour sa revanche en font une figure démoniaque au propre comme au figuré. 

Si elle constitue le ying négatif, le yang lumineux sera Sylvia Chang également présence surnaturelle (convoitant aussi le canon) mais positif et tragique dans son destin. King Hu durant les deux premières heures aura su faire ressentir cela par ses choix formels avant que viennent l’heure des explications dans la dernière partie marquée par un long flashback expiatoire – où se démultiplient ces partis pris esthétique et cette caractérisation. L’âme damnée et vengeresse de Mélodie appelle un arrière-plan crépusculaire entre ombre et lumière incandescente pour ses derniers instants quand la mort de Nuage est brève, douloureuse et sobrement dramatique dans son illustration. 

Le psychédélisme décomplexé autorise les idées les plus folles à King Hu (ces péchés passés qui se scrutent littéralement dans un écran de cinémabouddhique) aux antipodes du final de A Touch of Zen qui conservait une tonalité élégiaque dans ses excès. Alors que ce climax de révélations de combat magique dantesque semble nous emmener vers la conclusion, la narration s’étire et s’égare pour virer vers une épouvante traditionnelle chinoise plus explicite et inquiétante – Histoires de fantômes deChinois (1986) produit par Tsui Hark ramassé prolonge ce dernier acte sur un film entier en quelque sorte. 

Cette confusion tout en tirant le film en longueur est cohérente avec l’idée de voyage intime par le songe et l’illusion comme le montrera un surprenant épilogue. Une leçon et un rêve à la fois au cœur du récit mais aussi cinématographique dans une dernière scène annonçant Raining in the Mountain. Les parallèles (thématiques, esthétiques et le casting quasi identique) entre les deux films en font finalement les revers d’une même pièce dans la fantasmagorie orchestré par King Hu.

          World Markets Roiled As Turkey Currency Crisis Goes Global      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

For once it's not about trade wars... but the alternative is hardly better.

European stocks tumbled most in a month, following Asian shares lower following contagion fears that Turkey’s economic problems will spill over into the euro zone and beyond. The Euro sank, while the safe haven dollar advanced alongside Treasuries, with the 10Y back under 2.90%. The Turkish Lira initially plunged and fell 45 big figures, with the USDTRY hitting a record high of 6.3005, or up more than 11%, before holding below 6.0 for the bulk of the session.

As described earlier the collapse started around midnight EDT when the FT reported that the ECB Single Supervisory Mechanism warned that BBVA, UniCredit and BNP Paribas are particularly exposed to a TRY selloff, and even though it "does not see situation as critical yet", it warned that the risk is that Turkish borrowers may not be hedged against TRY weakness and begin to default on foreign- currency loans.

There is some hope that Turkish President Erdogan's speech at 12 p.m. London time will calm matters but his earlier ad hoc comments did not give much room for optimism. Speaking outside a mosque earlier today, Erdogan told followers “Don’t forget this: if they have got dollars, we have got our people, our right, our Allah."

Commenting on the statement, Bloomberg macro analyst Stephen Kirkland said that it signals he’s sticking to a nationalist message and is uninclined to deliver the hard measures Turkish assets need, which according to some analysts such as ADM's Marc Ostwald include a 500 bps rate hike and an IMF bailout. As a result, option markets are now pricing in a one-in-five chance of USD/TRY reaching 7 per dollar in a month, from about 1% probability yesterday.

For the Turkey watchers, here is today's key sequence of events, all times London:

  • 12.00BST: President Erdogan to speak
  • 12.30BST: Finance Minister Albayrak announces new economic model
  • 14.30BST: President Erdogan to speak again

And as fears of contagion mounted, the EURUSD tumbled to the lowest level in a year, running stops as it broke below the barrier level of 1.15...

... as the DXY spiked to YTD highs amid a broad flight to safety with the USD bid seen across all pairs. The scramble for safety meant that both USTs and bunds rallied however in a more contained manner and the 10Y bund yields were lower by ~3.5bps.

In equities, Europe's Stoxx Europe 600 Index dropped with European equity markets selling off steadily as banks underperformed with BBVA, UniCredit and BNP Paribas - the three banks named by the ECB - in focus as all three fall 3.5-4.0%. Mining stocks also weaker as Russia considers a new mining tax of $7.5b, which also weighed on metals across the board.

U.S. equity futures declined alongside shares from Asia to Europe. Asian equity markets were also mostly negative with sentiment subdued. The ASX 200 (-0.1%) and Nikkei 225 (-0.7%) were lower with Australia weighed by weakness in energy stocks, while Tokyo trade failed to benefit from stronger than expected GDP amid a firmer currency. Elsewhere, Shanghai Comp. (-0.1%) and Hang Seng (-0.4%) traded choppy amid a lack of fresh drivers and after the PBoC refrained from operations again for a neutral position for the week.

“We’re going to have the uncertainty about Erdogan and him speaking later today that I think is going to keep the market volatile,” said Peter Chatwell, head of European rates strategy at Mizuho International, in a Bloomberg Television interview. “But probably some of the market reaction we had first thing this morning could start to retrace a bit.”

As has been the case for much of 2018, geopolitical tensions between the U.S. and other countries had set the tone for markets this week, with the latest leg of the lira’s downward spiral triggered by a diplomatic row with America. Earlier in the week, China responded to the Trump administration’s latest trade war volley with additional tariffs of its own.

Elsewhere in FX, via BBG:

  • The pound sank to the lowest since June 2017 against the dollar, and held the losses even after data showed the U.K. economy expanded 0.4% between April and June, in line with the median forecast in a Bloomberg survey
  • Norway’s krone enjoyed support from a better-than-forecast inflation report while Sweden’s krona weakened after price data matched estimates
  • China’s yuan extended its drop, heading for the biggest fall in three weeks
  • The ruble hit a two-year low after the U.S. announced new sanctions on Russia over the March 4 nerve-agent attack on a former double agent in the U.K.

Oil is still set for its 6th weekly loss as the crude complex is being hit by a rising USD, and risk aversion with both WTI and Brent down ~0.8% on the day, and Brent set for a near 2% and WTI looking at a near 3% fall for the week. In the metals complex, gold is down and straddling the USD 1210/oz level, as the rising dollar is hitting the gold market, which is looking at its 5th consecutive weekly fall. Copper has given up gains seen in early trade and is currently down 1.1% as an 11.3% fall in copper inventories seen by ShFE over the past week has not counteracted the USD hitting 13 month highs

Asian equity markets were mostly negative with sentiment subdued after a lacklustre lead from Wall St. where weakness in energy and financials dragged the DJIA and S&P 500, while the Nasdaq just about remained afloat to notch its 8th consecutive gain. ASX 200 (-0.3%) and Nikkei 225 (-1.3%) were lower with Australia weighed by weakness in energy stocks, while Tokyo trade failed to benefit from stronger than expected GDP amid a firmer currency. Elsewhere, Shanghai Comp. (flat) and Hang Seng (-0.8%) traded choppy amid a lack of fresh drivers and after the PBoC refrained from operations again for a neutral position for the week. Finally, 10yr JGBs were higher with demand spurred by losses in riskier assets and with the BoJ also present in the market for nearly JPY 800bln in JGBs. PBoC skipped open market operations and were net neutral for the week vs. last week's CNY 210bln net drain.

European equities have started the day negative (Euro Stoxx 50 -1.4%) as amid reports the ECB is expressing concerns of a weak TRY on European banks. This is pressuring European banks as a whole (STOXX® Europe 600 Banks (SX7P) -1.7%) as investors are repositioning into safe-haven assets and away from the financial sector, which is the current sector underperformer. BNP Paribas (-3.7%), BBVA (-3.3%) and UniCredit (-3.1%) are bringing up the rear of the Stoxx 600 on the back of high exposure to Turkish assets.

In FX, the highlight was the TRY with almost relentless selling early Friday, to the point of a full-on capital flight at one stage, saw the Lira collapse to new all time lows vs the Usd with vendors and price feeds quoting levels for the pair anywhere between 6.0000-50 in fast, if not frantic market conditions. However, some respite for the Try ahead of and after Turkish current account data that was slightly better than forecast in the event, but the focus now very much on speeches from President Erdogan (midday and 14.30BST), and more importantly the Finance Minister’s new economic model (12.30BST). Usd/Try back under 6.0000, but only just. DXY - The index is just off best levels, but riding high near fresh 2018 peaks around 96.182 and still over the big figure amidst widespread Dollar gains, bar vs the safest of safe-haven currencies, Jpy as the aforementioned Lira and EM meltdown spills over to majors. Technically, 96.512 is next on the radar, assuming no intervention to stop the rout and/or a major upset for the Greenback independently (weak CPI data?). JPY - As noted, the exception to the rule, as Usd/Jpy trades mostly below 111.00 on risk-off positioning and the Jpy is also boosted by stronger than forecast Japanese GDP data overnight. Chart-wise, 110.53 represents nearest support and bids/stops are likely situated around 110.50.

In commodities, oil is set for its 6th weekly loss as the crude complex is being hit by a rising USD, and risk aversion with both WTI and Brent down ~0.8% on the day, and Brent set for a near 2% and WTI looking at a near 3% fall for the week. In the metals complex, gold is down and straddling the USD 1210/oz level, as the rising dollar is hitting the gold market, which is looking at its 5th consecutive weekly fall. Copper has given up gains seen in early trade and is currently down 1.1% as an 11.3% fall in copper inventories seen by ShFE over the past week has not counteracted the USD hitting 13 month highs. Aluminium is also down 0.5% on the day. IEA raise their 2018 oil demand growth forecast by 110k BPD to 1.49mln BPD, and see risks to 2019 oil demand growth from trade disputes and rising prices if supply is constrained.

Looking at the day ahead, the highlight is likely to be the July CPI report in the US. Prior to that we get the preliminary Q2 GDP reports in the UK. June industrial production data is also due out in France and the UK as well as June trade data in the latter. In the evening we'll also get the July monthly budget statement in the US. Gazprom will report earnings.

DB's Jim Reid concludes the overnight wrap

Markets are undoubtedly quiet at the moment but there are some big moves still in Turkey and Russia that are preventing everyone from enjoying the summer. Firstly the S&P 500 closed -0.14% after a dip in the last 15 minutes before the bell but the index again traded in a fairly narrow 0.37% range for the day - the 8th lowest this year. Meanwhile the Turkish Lira dropped -5.15% to a fresh record low (YTD -46.2%) and the 13th worst day since 2000. Ankara’s jailing of the America pastor and the associated diplomatic row continues to hurt the country’s assets. Not even the Turkish Treasury and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak’s office saying that the government would curb sovereign borrowing by reducing the GDP growth target to under 4% from 5.5% had an impact beyond a brief and small intra-daytick up in the Lira. President Erdogan speaks today at 2pm local time so it’ll be interesting to see if anything important comes from that. Meanwhile the Russian Ruble fell -1.72% (YTD -15.7%) to the lowest since April 2016 as the prior night’s US sanctions continued to dampen sentiment. Countries that are in a diplomatic battle with the US at the moment (e.g. China, Turkey and Russia) seems to be suffering in the markets.

The main highlight today is US CPI. DB expects core inflation (0.23% month-over-month) to rebound in July after a few softer monthly prints. According to our team, over the past three months, core CPI has risen at an annualized rate of only 1.74%, well below the year-over-year and 6-month annualized rates which are both near 2.3%. Their forecast is supported by recent firmer readings for alternative inflation gauges and expectations for a rebound in a few categories that have been unusually soft in recent months. A print in line with DB’s forecast would lift the YoY rate for core CPI inflation to 2.32%, which would support the long-standing house call for two more rate hikes this year.

Ahead of this, this morning in Asia, markets are retreating modestly with China’s CSI 300 broadly flat (+0.02%) while the Hang Seng (-0.45%), Nikkei (-0.72%) and Kospi (-0.66%) are all down as we type. Meanwhile futures on the S&P are pointing to a softer start while the Chinese Yuan is resuming its decline (-0.2%). Datawise, the rebound in Japan’s Q2 GDP was stronger than expected at 0.5% qoq (vs. 0.3% expected), leading to an annualised growth of 1.9%. Back to other markets performance from yesterday. In the US, the Nasdaq edged up for the 8th straight day (+0.04%), closing in on matching its prior winning streak of 9 days in late September 17. Meanwhile Tesla fell for the second day (-4.83%) and was down -9.0% from its intraday high a few days back, in part as investors scrutinised the potential to take the company back to private ownership.

Notably, Tesla rose c2% in after hour trading though after CNBC reported that its Board of Directors plans to meet with financial advisers next week to explore taking the company private, although Reuters cited unnamed sources which noted the board has not yet received a detailed financial plan from CEO Musk. So one to watch.

In Europe, the Stoxx 600 reversed earlier losses to close +0.09% as consumers stocks benefited from better than expected results from Adidas (+8.6%) and Cineworld (+10.7%). Across the region, the DAX (+0.34%) and CAC  (+0.01%) nudged higher while the FTSE (-0.45%) gave back some of its gains from the prior day. Over in government bonds, core 10y yields were around 2bp lower (Bunds -2.3bp; Gilts -1.9bp) while treasuries outperformed (-3.4bp), in part following a weaker than expected PPI print (more below). Turning to currencies, the US dollar index firmed 0.43% to a fresh 13 month high while the Euro and Sterling fell -0.71% and -0.45% respectively. In commodities, WTI oil softened further (-0.19%) while precious metals were little changed (Gold -0.12%; Silver +0.11%).

In other news, Business Insider reported that some member states in the EU are ready to allow UK to remain in the single market for goods while opting out of the free movement of people if UK agrees to replicate all environmental, social, and customs rules in addition to those set out in her so-called Chequers proposals. The potential trade-off will apparently be discussed at a special meeting of all 28 leaders in Salzburg next month. It doesn’t seem likely that the EU would be this generous at this stage and after a brief spike GBP largely ignored the story and closed -0.45% and -0.27% lower against the USD and EUR.

Finally turning to the latest central bankers speak. The Fed’s Evans, one of the more dovish Fed members seems to be shifting his tone as he noted that “it would not surprise me…if we make a judgement to move to a somewhat restrictive setting” on rates, which he believes could be roughly 50bp above his 2.75% estimate of neutral rates. Nearer term, he believes “it could be one or two more” rate hikes for the year. Meanwhile he pointed to the economy’s “extremely  strong” performance and he thinks “inflation expectations are going to catch up”. Back in the UK, the outgoing BoE policy maker McCafferty told the Guardian that wage growth might “creep up towards 4 percent-ish” in 2019, in part driven by a labour shortage and he sees “another couple” of rate hikes in the next 18 months to two years.

Before we take a look at today’s calendar, we wrap up with other data releases from yesterday. In the US, the July core PPI (ex food & energy) was 0.1ppt below expectations, coming in at 0.1% mom and 2.7% yoy. The weakness was in   part due to the decline in wholesale prices for apparel (-4.4% mom) and furnishings (-3.2% mom). Meanwhile, our US economists noted the healthcare component – used as an input in the core PCE deflator, was up just +0.03% in July leaving its annual growth rate steady at 1.7% yoy. Elsewhere the final reading for the June wholesale inventories was revised one-tenth higher to 0.1% mom. The weekly initial jobless (213k vs. 220k expected) and continuing claims (1,755k vs. 1,730k expected) remain near historic low levels and continue to reflect robust labour market conditions. Back in the UK, the June RICS housing survey reported that a net 4% of surveyors had seen house price increases over the past three months – up slightly from the June survey.

Looking at the day ahead, the highlight is likely to be the July CPI report in the US. Prior to that we get the preliminary Q2 GDP reports in the UK. June industrial production data is also due out in France and the UK as well as June trade data in the latter. In the evening we'll also get the July monthly budget statement in the US. Gazprom will report earnings.


          Richesse par habitant : le Qatar s'apprête à se faire détrôner par Macao      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
D'ici 2020, le Qatar ne sera plus le pays le plus riche de la planète. Le PIB par habitant le plus élevé du monde sera bientôt à chercher dans le territoire chinois de Macao. Macao et Singapour se ruent vers le haut 124 810 euros par habitant et par an : tel devrait être en 2020 le PIB par habitant dans le territoire chinois de Macao, surtout connu dans le monde entier comme " le paradis des jeux d'argent ", à en croire les prévisions du Fonds Monétaire International (FMI). Le Qatar, numéro 1 actuel, devrait quant à lui afficher une croissance moins rapide : son PIB par habitant devrait s'établir à 121 331 euros d'ici 2020. Globalement, le palmarès des " pays les plus riches d'ici 2020 ", élaboré par Bloomberg sur la base des dernières prévisions du FMI, se lit ainsi : Macao, Qatar, Luxembourg, Singapour, Brunei, Irlande, Norvège, Emirats Arabes Unis, Koweït et Hong Kong. Le PIB de Macao représentera le double de celui de Hong Kong Bien qu'il soit le territoire le plus densément peuplé du monde (650 000 habitants pour une superficie de seulement 30,5 kilomètres carrés), Macao affiche d'année en année un PIB par habitant record. Si celui-ci est si élevé, c'est grâce à ses casinos, Macao étant le seul territoire chinois où les jeux d'argent sont autorisés. Et qui dit casinos dit restaurants et hôtels haut de gamme. Parmi les pays de ce " Top 10 ", celui qui devrait afficher la croissance la plus rapide dans les cinq prochaines années est Singapour. D'ici 2023, son PIB par habitant devrait se compter en six chiffres : 102 486 euros par habitant très précisément.

          Malaysian FSIs lead digital transformation in EY survey      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Financial services institutions in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong continue to push forward their digitalization transformation initiatives with 87% of those surveyed claiming to have adopted some form of digital initiatives.

More than a quarter (26%) of those surveyed shared that digital infrastructure is comprehensively implemented across their organizations, another 13% are still assessing the need for digital adoption.

Among FSIs, banks lead with 91% indicating that they have initiated some levels of digital adoption in their organization. Insurers come next at 83%, followed by credit and payments sector (75%). Interestingly, the wealth, fund and asset management sector revealed a decisive split between digital progressives and digital laggards: 33% of wealth, fund and asset management companies have fully embraced digital, while 50% are still assessing the need for digital adoption.

EY report, Driving digital into the heart of Asia’s financial services industry, revealed that financial institutions in Malaysia are leading the pack in digital adoption as 36% of them have fully embraced digital. This is followed by Vietnam (33%), Singapore (29%), Indonesia (25%), Philippines (20%), Hong Kong (19%) and Thailand (17%).

Brian Thung, EY Asean Financial Services Leader noted that with digital transformation being the heart of next-generation innovation for financial services industry to enhance customer service, operational and resource efficiencies, and cost-savings, it is heartening to note that a significant majority of financial institutions have already embarked on their digital journey.

“Given the diverse levels of maturity in the digital and business landscape, it is not surprising to see the differing speeds at which financial institutions in the various countries approach digital transformation. However, with the expected boom in digital economy across Southeast Asia, financial institutions that seek to tap on this digital economic spur need to accelerate their transformation accordingly,” added Thung.

Opportunities from digital partnerships

Digital partnerships, ranging from cross-vertical with technology vendors to collaborations with FinTech rivals or even established incumbents, offer considerable value for financial institutions. Digital partnerships offer the opportunity to pool their collective skills to shape product development, enhance customer service, and maximize the efficiency and productivity of internal processes.

Yet, only 21% of those surveyed believed that their businesses were yielding maximum value from their digital partnerships, with a significant majority either partially meeting their objectives (35%) or still assessing their viability (43%).

Wealth, fund and asset management companies appear to lag behind their industry counterparts – none believe they are yielding maximum value, and only 17% are partially meeting their partnership objectives. On the other hand, a quarter (26%) of banks shared that their digital partnerships are generating maximum value. Just 13% of insurers as well as credit and payments companies shared similar sentiments. 

Singapore executives appear to be most buoyant over the benefits of these partnerships, with 32% of all respondents believing they add value to their organization.

Thung commented that working together with regulators and like-minded industry players, financial institutions can transform more seamlessly by optimizing digital partnerships that are aligned with the interests of the organization and their customers. “They can leverage the strengths of these partnerships to complement existing capabilities to achieve greater economies of scale, cross-sell into each other’s customer bases to expand market share and distribution network. This allows customers more choices and better engagement – creating a win-win outcome for all parties.”

Barriers to success

Digital disruption has presented challenges and opportunities to financial institutions. While the digital revolution has inspired a greater focus on customer demands and capacity to deliver these service innovations, it has also put pressure on existing technology infrastructure.

The survey revealed that legacy infrastructure appears to be the most significant hurdle for banking (34%) and insurance (33%) institutions as well as credit and payments companies (38%). Notably, the challenges of integrating legacy infrastructure with digital are felt most acutely among respondents from the Philippines (50%), Hong Kong (41%) and Singapore (36%).

For the wealth, fund and asset management sector, the lack of suitable talent to drive technology transformation projects (33%) was a top concern.

Liew Nam Soon, EY Asean Markets leader believed that overhauling legacy systems or adopting interoperable technologies can be a resource-intensive project for financial institutions.

“Yet, to truly drive digital into the heart of the financial services industry and achieve digital economic integration, localized digital strategies that are fit-for-purpose for each market is needed. Financial institutions that are cognizant of this and understand how and where to look for the right industry partnerships to gain access to opportunities to grow their customer base will be the ones that are well-placed for success,” concluded Liew.

          Comentario en Réquiem por las industrias. Por Carlos Ávila Villamar por Javier el otro      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Como es sabido, el balance commercial negativo de Cuba ha existido por decadas y ha sido cubierto parcialmente con prestamos. Durante la epoca del CAME, se hicieron ajustes entre las importaciones y las exportaciones que implicitamente, subsidiaban nuestra economia, ademas de creditos “blandos” con terminos muy generosos, lo cual desaparecio en los 90’s. A partir de ese momento, la economia cubana se tuvo que inserter en los mercados globales, con todo lo que ello ha conllevado y en lo cual no me detendre, pues ha sido analizado por expertos hasta la saciedad. En el caso de Cuba, existe la “complicacion” de estar sujeta a sanciones por parte de Estados Unidos, lo cual restringe su acceso a creditos en condiciones favorables y el ensañamiento de la OFAC y la Reserva Federal contra bancos extranjeros que procesen transacciones con empresas cubanas. Tampoco se puede ignorar el historial previo de cesacion de pagos a un numero de paises, lo cual congelo el credito (y al elevado rating de riesgo-pais) por decadas hasta que recientemente se renegocio la deuda con paises como Mexico, Japon, España y varios paises del Club de Paris. Si bien es cierto que una economia “fuerte” generalmente tiene asociada una moneda “fuerte”, eso no significa necesariamente que esa moneda sea una “divisa” libremente convertible, que como el autor debe saber, son el referente aceptado para el intercambio de bienes y servicios. Me vienen a la mente los dolares de Singapur, Hong Kong o las monedas de los Estados petroleros del Golfo, por no mencionar el yuan entre otras. La inflacion no esta necesariamente asociada la devaluacion de una u otra moneda, tiene mas relacion con el aumento del costo de los productos y en muchos casos, asociado con el precio del petroleo. Aqui entra el costo de producir y transportar alimentos y otros bienes, el costo de la energia y la electricidad, etc. Por otra parte, los Bancos Centrales mantienen un constante monitoreo de la inflacion y en base a eso dictan sus politicas monetarias, manteniendo un control en la emission de papel moneda, pero tambien manipulando las tasas de interes, lo cual puede estimular el consumo y la inversion (si la economia se mueve en un entorno deflacionario) o el ahorro (si la economia esta moviendose en un entorno inflacionario). En realidad, es mucho mas complejo, pues tambien en la toma de estas decisiones se tiene en cuenta el % de desempleo, el balance commercial y la salud de la economia en general entre otros factores. Efectivamente, Cuba tiene una economia pequeña, pero en general todos los paises cuya moneda no es convertible utilizan en sus importaciones y exportaciones el referente contra una “divisa”, que generalmente, es el USD. En el caso que Ud menciona sobre GB, en el parrafo anterior menciono a grandes rasgos como el Banco Central mantiene el monitoreo sobre la inflacion. Aunque es bueno acotar que estas monedas participan en el Mercado internacional y estan sujetas, por ende a fluctuaciones diarias en su valor contra otras, fluctuaciones sobre las cuales estos Bancos Centrales no tienen mucho control y estan dictadas por los mercados cambiarios internacionales, la percepcion de riesgo en un momento determinado o la especulacion pura y dura. Tambien debe considerarse que no por casualidad, los BC emisores de estas monedas estan ubicados en algunas de los principales centros financieros internacionales (Nueva York, Londres, Frankfurt, Zurich, Tokyo, etc). Ciertamente la dependencia de la economia mundial con respecto al USD no es justa, pero podriamos entonces argumentar usar otra (s) divisas o volver (algo poco probable en estos dias) a volver a utilizar el oro o los metales preciosos como contraparte de la fortaleza de una u otra moneda u economia, pero entonces los paises que tienen minas y explotacion de oro o sustanciales reservas de oro en las bovedas de sus Bancos Centrales tendrian ventajas sobre los demas. Asumo que al hablar de un mercado interno fuerte, se refiera a una industria nacional solida, porque un Mercado de 11 millones de consumidores no es particularmente grande, que por demas, tiene un bajo poder adquisitivo. Soñar no cuesta nada, pero yo diria que es poco probable que las importaciones puedan pagarse en pesos cubanos, dada la premisa que el peso cubano no es divisa convertible y carece de convertibilidad mas alla de las fronteras nacionales. Recuerde que hasta principios de los 90’s, el BNC fijaba la tasa de cambio 1 USD = 1CUP, lo cual como es ampliamente conocido, ha distorsionado el funcionamiento de la economia cubana (esto ha sido abordado por muchos trabajos por economistas dentro y fuera de Cuba). Aunque hoy en dia existen varias tasas cambiarias (con lo que eso conlleva), el BC ha optado por seguir tomando el USD como referente (‘pegged”) tal y como han adpotado un numero importante de paises, aunque variando el referente segun la region y las relaciones comerciales (AUD, GBP, EU, etc). La otra opcion es “floating” la moneda, lo cual implicaria el abandono de una tasa cambiaria fija a favor de una libre comercializacion en los mercados cambiarios o bolsas de valores, que dudo mucho que Cuba vaya en esa direccion. Una experiencia con alcance limitada se vio nacionalmente con la apertura de las CADECAS, donde el Estado cubano introdujo algunas medidas para reducir el exceso de circulante de CUP y manipulo artificialmente progresivamente la tasa USD :CUP (reemplazando el USD mas tarde por el CUC). Aunque en cierto momento, la emission de CUC estaba balanceada con las reservas de divisa convertible (USD), esta practica se abandono hace algun tiempo, asi que estrictamente hablando, podria decirse que el el BC habria ademas “devaluado” el CUC. La polemica de importar vs producir local ha estado latente a lo largo de decadas. El gobierno cubano ha favorecido la produccion nacional y la sustitucion de importaciones, lo cual no siempre es factible en nuestras condiciones. En esto tienen que ver muchos factores, entre ellos el tamaño de nuestra industria, la productividad, la eficiencia y por supuesto, los costos de produccion, asignatura esta que como sabemos no siempre se ha mirado y se observa como se debe. Ademas, tengamos en cuenta que en el mundo de hoy, existe una gran industria manufacturera en China contra la cual, dado su economia de escala y el costo de su mano de obra, casi nadie puede competir. En este sentido, nosotros no somos la excepcion ni mucho menos. Y aqui me refiero a su ejemplo de la importacion de ropa que menciona. La masividad de la industria china ha causado un tremendo daño a paises como Colombia y Ecuador, por poner un par de ejemplos, cuyas industrias nacional de confeccion historicamente suministraba el Mercado interno y ademas exportaba. En el caso de Panama, dada su ventajosa politica arancelaria y su exclusiva posicion geografica, tiene una puerta abierta para importaciones baratas. Tenga en cuenta ademas, que a la hora de poner un negocio, ademas de los margenes de rentabilidad, etc, etc, hay tres componentes principales del costo : Mano de obra, materias primas y costo de los servicios. El Segundo es mas o menos el mismo en todo el mundo, pues el costo del algodon o el acero laminado es similar, y la diferencia puede estar dado en el costo del flete, lo tercero de cierta manera depende cuan costoso es el precio del agua, gas o electricidad y lo primero es, en muchos casos, lo mas importante, no solo por los salarios y otras prestaciones que se paguen, tambien entra la disponibilidad local de fuerza de trabajo calificada y con cierto nivel de educacion, etc. Seria deseable no tener que depender del inversionista foraneo para expandir y desarrollar nuestra industria, pero la realidad es que en nuestras condiciones, las opciones de financiamiento de nuestra economia son limitadas. Esto podria, parcialmente cambiarse si se ampliara la participacion de nacionales dentro y fuera de Cuba en inversiones directas en la industria, contando por supuesto con un marco regulatorio de acuerdo a las practicas internacionales y ajustado a leyes balanceadas, una politica fiscal sensible entre otras cosas. Yo pienso que existen muchas oportunidades para industrias donde la innovacion tecnologica y las tecnologias de punta que estan fuera de las ferias comerciales y la cartera de negocios del MINCEX o las prioridades estrategicas del gbierno cubanos sobre todo en industrias emergentes como el reciclaje, la nanotecnologia, entre otras. Ademas, el vicio de la industria cubana durante decadas fue cumplir los planes en valores pero la produccion fisica siempre fue inferior a la demanda y no tenian en cuenta el Mercado (inundaban las tiendas de algunos surtidos con calidad discutible pero no habia manera de encontrarse otros ; igual cumplian el plan en valores y esto era recurrente (y creo que aun lo es) en nuestra prensa nacional) Lo que plantea de dirigir los margenes de ganancia hacia el sector presupuestado, para mi es visto como una limitacion inherente del Sistema empresarial estatal. La empresa estatal tiene limitado poder de decision para reinvertir sus margenes de ganancia, ya sea en modernizar la planta, mejorar las condiciones de trabajo de sus trabajadores o pagarles incentivos y depende de la aprobacion, en ultima instancia, de las directivas y del presupuesto aprobado a nivel ministerial / centralizado. Esto tal vez se haga con la mira puesta en una vision mas integral de la macroconomia pero no pocas veces desconoce e impacta negativamente en el desarrollo de la empresa como unidad productiva y ultimamente, en alcanzar rentabilidad y aumentar su productividad. Si bien es cierto que se han tratado de introducir en diversas epocas ciertos esquemas de estimulacion, a juzgar por los resultados, su alcance ha sido limitado. Volviendo a los margenes de ganancia, al ser una parte de estos utlizados e sectores presupuestados o no productivos o a las arcas del Estado para pagar por envios de petroleo o alimentos, lo cual en no pocos casos, crea tensiones adicionales en el pago a proveedores de estas mismas empresas, deteriorando las relaciones comerciales y en algunos casos comprometiendo futuras producciones. En cuanto al papel del turismo y los servicios en general, en muchos paises desarrollados se ha dado el caso de moverse de un modelo industrial hacia una economia de servicios. No digo que vayan a vivir solamente del turismo sino que es complementario. Pienso en Gran Bretaña, Australia, etc. En las ultimas decadas, centros tradicionalmente industriales como Sheffield o Newcastle (GB) y sus fabricas de produccion de acero han desaparecido. Esto sin duda, significo un serio golpe para dichas comunidades, pero en el transcurso de algunos años mas tarde, estas ciudades se convirtieron en ciudades universitarias y en iman para industrias de tecnologias de punta y/o proveedoras de servicios. Volviendo a la industria en economias fuertes, esto no quiere decir que han cerrado todas sus fabricas, pero a lo largo de las ultima decadas, ha habido un declive en sus industrias manufactureras, entre otros factores, por la creciente presencia y fortaleza de la industria china, las cada vez mas estrictas regulaciones medioambientales que limitan las carga contaminante (en muchos casos las industrias tienen que cerrar porque tendrian que hacer una inversion excesiva para cumplir con los estandares medioambientales), obsolecencia tecnologia o simplemente, pobre competitividad en ciertas areas. Algunas economias se han movido hacia industrias muy especializadas, con alto valor agregado o con unos estandares de calidad que les permite ser lideres de Mercado. Estoy pensando en Airbus, Pfeifer, SKF o algunas marcas automotrices (aunque muchas firmas alemanas tienen plantas en Asia o Sudafrica, por ejemplo). Y contrariamente a lo que Ud plantea del turismo, en muchos paises son ingresos no despreciables. Pongamos los ejemplos de Francia, Italia y España en Europa, pero otros paises, como algunos Estados del Golfo persico (Qatar, Emiratos, etc) han invertido vertiginosamente en infraestructura (modernos aeropuertos, flotas de aviones, centros comerciales, etc) precisamente moviendose en esa direccion.

I too foresee a 3-way (besides Libertarian & Green) general election campaign : (assuming the Dem establishment doesn't quadruple down on transparent vote-tampering and "kill the Party in order to save it", and thereby steal the nomination from Bernie) most of the Dem establishment likely to support (with various degrees of openness) an Independent Presidential candidate. Steyer now looks much better positioned for this role than the Wall Street-tainted Bloomberg, or maybe so much support will be forthcoming that the usual self-funding requirement can be waived. There may be so many wannabees that the top 5 or 10 need to have their own convention to sort out the selection. Less predictable is the Independent Veep position. Conventional logic about ticket-balancing would say: 1. John Kasich 2. Condoleeza Rice 3. Susana Martinez

<blockquote>As 2020 Talk Continues, Kamala Harris Is Set To Headline Martha’s Vineyard Reception </blockquote> Since Harris is by-far the most logical Anybody-But-Bernie candidate (because identity politics and "tough prosecutor" is all they have, other than fabrications stretching even today's low standards of plausibility) ... each Harris branding-misstep is welcome. She was smart enough to keep her AIPAC talk off-the-record, but not smart enough to know that Martha Vineyard is nearly as emblematic of elite obliviousness as "Secret Speeches to Wall Street". If she was really smart, she would stay lower profile, because Biden will never fit this role, Booker has already disqualified himself, Gillibrand's reputation will be lucky to survive the present uprising in New York, and Warren's fire in the belly is unlikely to make it to, much less past, the New Hampshire primary.

          Chinas metal recyclers rush to divert or sell US cargoes as tariffs loom      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Chinese copper fabricators and importers are scrambling to divert or resell cargoes of U.S. copper scrap en route to China after Beijing hit such imports with a 25-percent duty as the trade row with Washington deepens, sources said.U.S. scrap metal, waste paper and plastics cargoes arriving in China from Aug. 23 will incur the new levy after China announced on Wednesday its final list of tariffs on $16 billion of U.S. goods. Scrap was not on a draft list released in June. In the first quarter there were almost 2,200 cargoes of copper scrap per month sent to China from the United States, according to Reuters calculations based on customs data. The average cargo of scrap copper sent to China is about 20 tonnes.With less than two weeks before the new tariffs come into effect, Chinas imposition of duties threatens to disrupt trade for one of the worlds top metal and scrap consumers, as recyclers rush to find new homes for cargoes to avoid paying new duties.Last night I lost sleep, an executive at a metals recycler with processing yards in Zhejiang province said on Thursday. He has several cargoes of U.S. scrap copper due to arrive in Ningbo port after the deadline or about to load on the U.S. East and West coasts.We dont have a solution yet, but were discussing it with the supplier, he said, adding he was looking for buyers in Japan, South Korea, India and even Europe.Those importers with stranded cargoes will likely have to offer discounts to attract buyers, sources said.The penalties are Chinas latest blow to the U.S. recycling sector, after Beijing hit aluminium scrap with hefty duties in April as part of the trade dispute.The impact will be draconian on both U.S. scrap processors and Chinese consumers, Michael Lion, Hong Kong-based president of Lion Consulting Asia and a Chinese metals industry veteran, said in an email.Companies such as Sims Metal Management and Nucor Corps scrap subsidiary David J Joseph are major exporters of U.S. scrap to China and elsewhere.Last year, the United States sold almost $6 billion worth of scrap commodities to China and was the second-largest supplier of copper scrap behind Hong Kong, exporting 535,371 tonnes worth roughly $1.8 billion in 2017. Hong Kong sent 627,180 tonnes, according to Chinese customs data.The global recycling sector is also reeling from Beijings tighter restrictions on waste imports introduced over the past year as China aims to stop being the dumping ground for the worlds garbage.Chinas scrap metal imports dropped by a third in the first half of 2018 to 2.86 million tonnes, while the country has barely imported waste plastic this year.An executive with a major scrap metal recycler in Asia said there would likely be a combination of resales, trans-shipments and reluctant payment of the 25-percent tariff.Those that can resell may see (that) as the best option even if at lower numbers as there is always risk in trans-shipment, the source said, adding that there were many cargoes already on the water.An executive at a Zhejiang-based copper rod maker, which uses scrap as raw material, also said shipments via a third-country were an option, although cargoes could even be sent back to the United States after docking in China.The three executives declined to be identified because they are not authorised to speak to the media.Responding to the news, the Washington-based Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) warned that China may struggle to find enough material from other countries.REUTERS YK SV1403

          Economy grows 3.5% in Q2      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Hong Kong's economy grew 3.5% in the second quarter of 2018, compared to the same period last year, marking the seventh quarter of growth above the trend growth rate of 2.7% per annum in the past decade.

 

The growth followed a 4.6% rise in the previous quarter.

 

With a strong year-on-year growth of 4% in the first half of the year, coupled with increased external headwinds, the forecast real GDP growth for 2018 is maintained at 3% to 4%.

 

Total exports of goods grew solidly by 4.6% in real terms in the second quarter over a year earlier, after a 5.2% growth in the first quarter. Most major markets also recorded continued growth in the second quarter.

 

Exports of services expanded 6.1% year-on-year in real terms for the quarter.

 

At a press conference today, Deputy Government Economist Adolph Leung said: “In particular, inbound tourism continued to register double-digit growth. Yet, external uncertainties increased markedly in the latter part of June, as a result of escalating trade conflict between the US and the Mainland.

 

“For the impact of the trade conflicts, basically can affect Hong Kong through several channels. The most direct channel is through the trade channel and it will probably affect Hong Kong's re-exports of China origin to the US.

 

“And so far, the US has announced two lists, the first list comprised products of US$50 billion China products exported to US, and the second list comprised US$200 billion China products. Take two lists together and according to our estimate, the amount of Hong Kong’s re-exports of China origin to the US affected is about HK$136 billion, equivalent to about 3.5% of Hong Kong’s total exports.”

 

The residential property market stayed buoyant in the quarter, with prices rising by 5% between March and June.

 

Overall flat prices in June exceeded the 1997 peak by 125%.

 

Due to the upward adjustment in the ceiling of the Government’s rates concession, the headline consumer price inflation came down slightly to 2.1% in the second quarter, compared to 2.4% in the first quarter.

 

The forecast rates of underlying and headline consumer price inflation for 2018, at 2.5% and 2.2%, are maintained in the current round of review.


          How Ikea quietly tweaks its design around the world      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This week, Ikea opened its first store in India–a feat the company has been planning for many years. But while the big, blue exterior of the store looks the same, the interiors, from the displays to the products themselves, have been subtlety tailored to accommodate cultural differences.

It’s a strategy Ikea has used to expand from its origins in Sweden, now reaching 30 markets in Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia: keep the general idea and most of the products the same, with small tweaks to help ease people into the Ikea view of the world (and convince them to shop there). After all, what an American shopper is looking for is different from what an Indian consumer wants. To discern the differences, the company sends its representatives into homes all over the world to talk to people, asking what their needs are, what they can afford, and how they like to shop.

As Ikea has expanded into Asia over the last five years, this has been a crucial part of its strategy–along with preserving the company’s instantly recognizable brand and its famed shopping experience. But even crucial elements of Ikea’s business, like flatpacking most furniture, have to be rethought in some Asian countries, where consumers expect that furniture is assembled for them.

Here’s how Ikea tweaked its design in its new Indian store–and around the world.

Indian furniture can beat the heat and humidity

In the hot, humid climate of southern India, untreated pine furniture–which might work in cooler climates–is a no-go. As the New York Times reports, that meant the company had to adjust some of its furniture designs to use different materials. And because people tend to clean their floors using water, the designers added risers to keep furniture from getting wet.

The way Indian families use their space also impacted the number of product options: Because impromptu family gatherings are common, Ikea offers a greater number of stools and folding chairs in the India store.

Chinese Ikea showrooms get their very own balconies

The displays in the showroom are culturally relevant as well: In China, the showroom includes an entire section on balconies, which are common in Chinese homes. But in southern China, these balcony displays show them being used to dry clothes, while in northern Chinese Ikea stores, the displays show the balcony as another place for food storage–both according to the custom in the area.

Korean Ikea beds are built for tiny spaces

Just as people use their living spaces differently, cultural expectations around bedrooms–and beds–are also wildly different. Americans, for instance, have a particular set of standard sizes for bed frames and mattresses. When the company was expanding into the United States, it made the mistake of putting the dimensions in centimeters rather than in terms of “queen” and “king” sizes, though it quickly fixed the error. When the company first opened stores in China, it had a similar problem: It used the standard sizes for Hong Kong, which are shorter than those on the mainland, before implementing the local sizes.

Ikea’s displays in the new Indian store are more culturally aware: Because Indian children tend to sleep in their parents’ bedrooms for longer periods of time, the sample bedroom included a small bed for a family’s youngster.

Sleeping habits have even led to entirely new products. Before opening its store in South Korea in 2014, Ikea conducted 900 interviews and visits–and ended up designing a “super single” sized bed specifically for Koreans that is optimized for small bedrooms but offers a little more space than your average single.

Swedish meatballs get local flavors

In the company’s new store in Hyderabad, India, there are Swedish meatballs still on the menu at the cafeteria–but they’re vegetarian ones. According to the Times, the cafeteria also serves Indian staples like samosas, biryani, and gulab jamun, a popular dessert. In South Korea, Ikea serves kimchi bibimbap and Korean barbecue.

The Indian cafeteria is also far bigger than Ikea’s other restaurants, which are a staple of the store experience–it can seat 1,000 people. The Times writes that this is “to accommodate the more leisurely dining style of Indian families,” though that might mean that Ikea is aware that trekking out to the store might be an activity for the entire extended family–and all of the cousins will be invited.

American drinking glasses are as big as vases

Regardless of culture, the kitchen is often a centerpiece of the home–but that doesn’t mean it’s used in the same way or shouldn’t adjust to each culture’s needs.

[Image: courtesy Ikea]

The Times reports that Ikea adjusted the heights of countertops in its Indian showroom because Indian women tend to be shorter. Even the cutlery they’re selling is slightly different: Because many Indian people prefer to use spoons over knives, Ikea decided not to sell the packets of children’s cutlery it sells in other countries that include knives. Instead, it sells sets of four spoons for the equivalent of 22¢. In the company’s Chinese stores, Ikea stocks far more rice cookers and chopsticks than it would in other countries. The catalog for the Chinese market is different as well: The 2017 version shows a much more confined kitchen space when compared side by side with the American one, because Chinese homes tend to have smaller kitchens.

Ikea also had to change its designs for American audiences. When the company started to expand its presence in the United States in the 1990s, it found that it was selling an uncommonly large number of vases. Eventually, executives realized that Americans were buying the vases to drink out of, as the Swedish company’s glasses were too small for local tastes. Even Swedish design-loving Americans needed their own cultural accommodation.

Pay

253 millones de usuarios, son los que el analista Gene Munster estima que tiene Apple Pay a día de hoy. Al parecer, el servicio de pagos cada vez es una parte más importante de la categoría Servicios en los ingresos trimestrales de Apple. Un crecimiento récorod en los últimos meses y que parece no tener tope de momento.

Se estima que en este último año, un 31% de los usuarios de iPhone han hecho una compra con Apple Pay. Frente al 25% de los usuarios hace dos años. Es decir, ahora uno de cada tres usuarios de iPhone paga ocasionalmente o regularmente con el teléfono o el reloj de Apple.

Captura De Pantalla 2018 08 10 A Las 14 01 08 Número de transacciones con Apple Pay según Loup Ventures.

Como siempre, Apple no proporciona datos oficiales y exactos sobre cuántas personas están usando Apple Pay. No obstante, en los últimos resultados financieros Tim Cook dijo que hubo más de mil millones de transacciones de Apple Pay en el tercer trimestre fiscal de 2018. Esto suponía un crecimiento del 200% en doce meses, según Tim Cook.

Más popular en el extranjero que en Estados Unidos

Lo curioso de Apple Pay es cómo se está desarrollando su expansión. Al contrario de lo que podríamos pensar, es fuera de Estados Unidos donde más está siendo aceptado y se está utilizando. La cultura del efectivo y los cheques hacen que el pago con tarjeta no sea tan común en el país de origen de Apple Pay. A mi por ejemplo, me sorprendió enormemente cuando unos compañeros de Estados Unidos se quedaban asombrados al ver en cuántos lugares podían pagar con Apple Pay por España y Europa en general.

Pay

La adopción por parte de los bancos está creciendo continuamente. Según datos de Apple hay 4.900 bancos que se han unido al servicio ya, de los cuales 1.701 lo han hecho en el tercer trimestre fiscal de 2018. ¿Donde más crece? En Europa, con un 370% y en Asia con un 141% de crecimiento. En líneas generales, según el analista Gene Munster, Apple tiene un 85% de los usuarios de Apple Pay fuera de Estados Unidos.

Actualmente, Apple Pay está disponible en Estados Unidos, Reino Unido, Australia, Canadá, Singapur, Suiza, Hong Kong, Francia, Rusia, China, Japón, Nueva Zelanda, España, Taiwán, Irlanda, Italia, Dinamarca, Finlandia, Suecia, Emiratos Árabes Unidos, Brasil, Ucrania, Noruega y Polonia. También llegará a finales de año a Alemania.

2018 Uluslararası Matematikçiler Kongresi’nde takdim edilen Fields madalyalarının sahiplerini ve çalışmalarını tanıttığımız yazı dizisine, Peter Scholze ve Caucher Birkar’ın ardından Akshay Venkatesh ile devam ediyoruz.

2018 Uluslararası Matematikçiler Kongresi’nde takdim edilen Fields madalyalarının sahiplerini ve çalışmalarını tanıttığımız yazı dizisine, Peter Scholze ve Caucher Birkar’ın ardından Akshay Venkatesh ile devam edelim.

1981 yılında Hindistan’ın başkenti Yeni Delhi’de orta sınıf bir Hindu Tamil Brahmin ailesinde dünyaya gelen Venkatesh’in yaşamı, iki yaşından itibaren Batı Avusturalya’nın Perth şehrinde sürmüştür. İskoç Koleji’nde eğitim alan Venkatesh, bu yıllarda yetenekli öğrenciler için oluşturulan müfredat dışı sınıflarda, ulusal olimpiyat programlarına hazırlanmıştır.

On bir yaşında katıldığı, Virginia’da düzenlenen 24. Uluslarlarası Fizik Olimipiyatları’nda bronz madalya kazanmıştır. Sonraki yıl ilgisi matematiğe kayan Venkatesh, 6. Asya Pasifik Matematik Olimpiyatları’nda gümüş madalya elde etmiştir ve aynı yıl Hong Kong’da düzenlenen Uluslarlararası Matematik Olimpiyatları’nda bronz madalya kazanmıştır. Bu başarısıyla J.A. Woods anısına verilen ödüle layık görülmüştür.

Sadece on üç yaşında lise eğitimini tamamlayan Venkatesh, Batı Avusturalya Üniversitesi’ne en erken başlayan öğrenci olmuştur. Üç yıl sonra teorik matematik lisans derecesini birincilikle elde ettikten sonra, doğrudan Princeton Üniversitesi’nde doktora programına kabul almıştır. 2002 yılında, “Limiting forms of the trace formula” isimli doktora tezini Peter Sarnak’ın danışmanlığında tamamlamıştır. Lisansüstü çalışmaları Hackett bursu tarafından desteklenmiştir. Sonrasında, MIT’de C.L.E. Moore eğitmeni kadrosunda doktora sonrası pozisyonu elde eden Venkatesh, 2004-2006 yılları arasında da Clay Matematik Enstitüsü tarafından verilen Clay araştırma bursunu kazanmıştır. Ardından, New York Üniversitesi’nin Courant Matematiksel Bilimler Enstitüsü’nde doçentlik yapmıştır. 2005-2006 yılları arasında İleri Çalışmalar Enstitüsünde (IAS) çalışan Venkatesh, 2008’de Stanford Üniversitesi’nde profesörlük unvanını almıştır. 2017-2018 yılları arasında IAS’ta ziyaretçi profesörlük yaptıktan sonra, dört gün önce bu kuruma kalıcı olarak dönüş yapmıştır.

Bu zaman diliminde Venkatesh matematiğin bir çok prestijli ödülünü kazanmıştır. 2007’de Salem ödülüne layık görüldükten sonra, 2008 yılında Ramanujan ödülünü elde etmiştir. 2010 yılında Haydarabad’da düzenlenen 26. Uluslarlarası Matematikçiler Kongresi’nde davetli konuşmacı olarak yer almıştır. 2016 yılında Infosys ödülünü kazanan Venkatesh, 2017 yılında Ostrowski ödülünü almıştır.

Son olarak Fields madalyasını kazanan Venkatesh, Terrence Tao’dan sonra bu ödülü kazanan ikinci Avusturalyalı matematikçi ve Manjul Bhargava’dan sonra bu onura nail olan ikinci Hint kökenli matematikçi olmuştur. Bu ödüle en genel olarak, analitik sayılar kuramı, türdeş dinamikler (homogeneous dynamics), topoloji ve temsiller kuramını birlikte sentezlediği için layık görülmüştür.

Venkatesh’in ve alandaşlarının çalışmaları sonuç bazında sayılar kuramına ait olsa da ortaya çıkma sürecinde diğer kuramları ciddi bir biçimde kullanmaktadırlar. Bu nedenle Venkatesh’in ve alandaşlarının matematik külliyatı çok geniştir. Şimdi Venkatesh'in çalışmalarını üç ana başlıkta tanıtmaya çalışalım.

İlk olarak sayılar kuramının en eski problemlerinden biri ile başlayalım. İkinci dereceden bir denklemi ifade eden x²+xy+7y²+yz+12z² polinomunu ele alalım. Temel soru hangi tamsayıların bu karesel ifadeler yardımıyla üretilebildiğidir. 1770’de, Joseph-Louis Lagrange tarafından kanıtlanan bir teoremin sonucu olarak biliyoruz ki, x² ifadesi sadece tam kareler üretirken w²+x²+y²+z² ifadesi tüm pozitif tamsayıları üretir.

Carl Friedrich Gauss, 1801 yılında yayımlanan muazzam eseri Disquisitiones Arithmeticae’da, değişken değiştirme yöntemleriyle bir karesel ifadenin başka bir karesel ifadeye nasıl dönüşeceğini göstermiştir. Bu tip dönüştürmeler karesel ifadeleri çok basit hale getirme olanağı yaratmıştır. Verilen m ve n tamsayıları için, m≥n eşitsizliğini varsayalım. Eğer m değişkenli bir P karesel ifadeyi, bir n değişkenli Q karesel ifadeye dönüştürebiliyorsak P, Q’yu temsil ediyor diyelim. Bu noktada ortaya çıkan doğal soru hangi karesel ifadelerin başka bir karesel ifadeler tarafından temsil edildikleridir. Bu soru, David Hilbert’in 1900 yılında yayımlanan meşhur problemler listesindeki 11. sorunun başka bir şekilde ifade edilmesinden ibarettir. 1978 yılında,  John S. Hsia, Yoshiyuki Kitaoka, and Martin Kneser göstermiştir ki eğer m≥2n+3 ise P, Q’yu temsil eder.

Sonraki 30 yıl boyunca bu problemde neredeyse hiçbir ilerleme kaydedilememiştir. Üstelik bu zaman diliminde diğer matematikçiler, en iyi ihtimalle m≥2n+2 eşitsizliğinin sağlanacağını düşünmüşlerdir. 2008 yılında, Venkatesh ve çalışma arkadaşı Jordan Ellenberg, m ve n tamsayılarının düşünüldüğünden çok daha yakın olduğunu kanıtlamıştır: m≥n+5 ise P, Q’yu temsil eder. 

Daha da şaşırtıcı olan ise kanıt yöntemleri olmuştur. Sayılar kuramına ait bu problemin kanıtında, dinamik sistemler kuramının araçlarından yararlanmışlardır. İlk etapta bu probleme kafes kavramıyla yaklamışlardır. Kafes, s-boyutlu bir Öklid uzayı Rˢ’de, Zˢ ile cebirsel olarak eş olan bir toplamsal altgruptur. Özünde geometrik bir nesne olan kafeslerin sayılar kuramında kullanışları uzun bir geçmişe sahiptir ve ondokuzuncu yüzyılın sonlarında matematiğe ciddi katkılarda bulanan Hermann Minkowski’nin çalışmalarında etkili olarak kullanılmıştır. Kafesler ayrıca dinamik sistemlerin de temel araçlarından biri olagelmiştir. Kum tanelerinin meltemde bir yerden diğerine akışı gibi, kafes noktalarını sistemin etkisi altında zamana göre yer değiştiriyor gibi düşünebiliriz.

1990’lı yılların başında Marina Ratner’in sunduğu kanıtlar sayesinde dinamik sistemler kuramı, kafes noktalarının akışına dair derin bir anlayışa sahip olmuştur. Ellenberg ve Venkatesh, Ratner’in önemli bir teoreminin bir çeşidi olan ve kafes dinamiklerini karesel ifadelerin temsil problemine uygulanabilir kılan bir teoremi kanıtlamışlardır. Sayılar kuramını derinden sarsan bu teorem, dinamik sistemle ilgilenen araştırmacılar arasında da heyecanla karşılanmıştır.

Karesel ifadelerin temsili ile ilgili önemli sonuçların yer aldığı makalenin ön baskısı Venkatesh tarafından 2005’te yapılmıştır. 2010’da dergide yayımlanmıştır ve sonrasında Philippe Michel’in çalışmalarıyla genişletilmiştir. Ayrıca bu makalede Ventakesh, daha teknik bir soru olarak bilinen alt dışbükeylik (subconvexity) probleminedair dinamik sistemler kuramına yaslanan bir yaklaşım geliştirmiştir.

İkinci olarak, yine sayılar kuramında sürpriz gelişmeler kaydeden Venkatesh, bu sefer topolojinin araçlarını kullanmıştır. (Topoloji en genel olarak şekillerin temel özelliklerini çalışan bir matematik dalıdır.) Tamsayıların temel özelliği çarpanlarına ayrılabilmeleridir: her tamsayı tek bir biçimde asal sayıların çarpımı olarak ifade edilebilir. Tam sayılar, halka olarak bilinen ve bir boştan farklı küme üzerinde birbiriyle ilişkili toplama, çıkarma ve çarpma işlemlerine sahip bir cebirsel yapı oluşturur. Halkalar, genellikle R sembolü ile gösterilirler. Verilen a ve b tamsayıları için R,  formundaki sayıların halka yapısını göstersin. R tamsayılarda çözülemeyen x²=-5 gibi denklemlerin çözümünü içerir, fakat R tek türlü çarpanlara ayrılabilme özelliğinden yoksundur. Örneğin R’de 9 sayısı 3 x 3 veya ( ) x ( ) şeklinde iki türlü çarpanlarına ayrılabilir. Bir halkanın sınıf (class) sayısı, bir halkanın çarpanlarına ayrılabilme özelliğine ne kadar uzak olduğunu ölçen bir tamsayıdır. Sınıf sayıları, sayılar kuramının her yerinde ortaya çıkmaktadır ve tüm halkalar koleksiyonu için nasıl davrandıklarının gizemi henüz aydınlatılamamıştır.

İlk bakışta, sınıf sayılarının tam sayılar içinde rasgele dağıldığı beklense de, 1984 yılında Henri Cohen ve Hendrik Lenstra, beklenmeyen bulgusal sonuçlar ortaya koymuştur. Örneğin, bu sayıların üçte biri 3 sayısı tarafından bölünmektedir. Bu çalışmalar sonucu oranın yaklaşık olarak %43 olduğu tahmin edilmektedir.

Bu bulgusal sonuç otuz yıl boyunca gizemini sürdürmüştür. 2016 yılında Venkatesh ve çalışma arkadaşları Jordan Ellenberg and Craig Westerland büyük bir yenilik ile probleme yaklaşmışlardır. Sınıf sayılarının tam sayılar arasında dağılım problemine yakın bir problem olan fonksiyon cisimlerinin sınıf sayılarının dağılım problemine odaklanarak, Cohen ve Lenstra’nın bulgusunu anlama yolunda büyük bir ilerleme kaydetmişlerdir. Stratejilerine problemi topolojiyetaşımakla başlamıştır.

Bir fonksiyon cismi K=Q(z)(w), z bilinmeyenli rasyonel fonksyonlar cismi Q(z)’nin sonlu bir cisim genişlemesidir. Matematikte fonksiyon cisimlerinin topoloji ile ilintisi uzun zamandır bilinen bir gerçek olagelmiştir fakat probleme uygun topolojik araçları belirlemek ve uygulamak çoğu zaman derin bir soyutlama ve onların arasındaki ilişkilerin keşfini gerektirmiştir. Venkatesh ve çalışma arkadaşları modern bir topolojik araç olan homolojik kararlılık (stability) kavramını kendi çalışmalarına uyarlamışlardır. Homolojik kararlılık, gruplardan oluşan artan bir zincire karşılık gelen grup homolojilerinin bir müddet sonra sabit kalması demektir. Hurwitz uzaylarının homolojik kararlılığını kanıtlamışlardır ve bu sonucu sayılar kuramına, Cohen ve Lenstra’nın bulgusunun tutarlılığını sağlamak için uygulamışlardır. Yine Venkatesh’in çalışmaları matematiğin iki alanına, sayılar kuramı ve topolojiye aynı anda katkı sunmuştur.

Venkatesh’in çalışmalarının en son örneği henüz tamamlanmamış kimi sanılardan oluşmaktadır. 2017-2018 yılları arasında bu yeni düşünceleri diğer matematikçilerle paylaştığı bir çok seminer ve ders vermiştir. Bu sanılar doğrudan Langlands programı ile ilişkilidir. Langlands programı, matematiğin Büyük Birleşik Kuramı olarak nitelenmektedir. Bu program son derece derin ve geniş kapsamlı belli matematiksel sanılar ağının bütünüdür ve Kanadalı matematikçi, 2018 yılı Abel Ödülü sahibi, Robert Langlands tarafından 1967 yılında öne sürülmüştür. Langlands programı henüz tamamlanmaktan çok uzak olsa da, içerisinde kimi önemli yollar katedilmiştir. Bunlardan en çok bilineni, 1990’lı yıllarda Taniyama-Shimura Sanısı'nın ispatı sonucu elde edilen Fermat’ın Son Teoremi’nin kanıtıdır. Kanıt İngiliz matematikçi Andrew Wiles tarafından diğer bir İngiliz matematikçi (ve öğrencisi) Richard Taylor’un yardımı ile yapılmıştır.

Wiles ve Taylor’un yöntemi geometrik nesneler olan eliptik eğriler ile analitik nesneler olan modüler formlar arasındaki ilişkiyi deşifre etmiştir. Bu ilişki tam olarak Langlands Programı tarafından öngörülen bir ilişki türüdür. Wiles ve Taylor’ın yöntemi özünde özel bir geometrik nesne olan Shimura çeşitlilikleri için geliştirilmiştir. Venkatesh’in en yeni çalışmaları bu metodu Shimura olmayan çeşitliliklere genellemiştir.

Bu çalışmanın merkezinde yerel simetrik uzaylar olarak bilinen topolojik nesneler yer almaktadır. Venkatesh ve çalışma arkadaşları bu uzayların topolojisini tarif etmişlerdir ve topolojilerinin beklenmeyen simetriler barındırdığını göstermişlerdir. Bu simetriler yerel simetrik uzayların homoloji gruplarında ortaya çıkmaktadır. (Homoloji grubu, topolojik uzayların deliklerinin sayısı yardımıyla tanımlanan cebirsel bir nesnedir.) Venkatesh bu simetrileri anlamak için yeni bir yöntem ortaya koymuştur ve bu yöntemde motifsel (motivic) kohomolojiden yararlanmıştır. Bu yeni yöntemin felsefesi Wiles ve Taylor’ın yönteminin genelleştirilmiş bir haline yaslanmaktadır. Bu çalışmalar henüz tamamlanmaktan çok uzakta olsa da bu alanda yapılacak ilerlemelerin Langlands Programı’nı doğrudan geliştireceği tahmin edilmektedir.

Matematiğin uçsuz bucaksız dünyasına katkı sunmak için çabalayan çoğu matematikçi ya problem çözmekle ya da kuram geliştirmekle meşguldür. Akshay Venkatesh her ikisini birden aynı anda yapabilen nadir matematikçilerdendir. Henüz 36 yaşında olan Venkatesh'in engin bilgisiyle ve derin soyutlama yeteneğiyle matematiği sarsan kanıtlar sunmaya devam edeceğine inanıyoruz.

          Hong Kong: Cultural melting pot and Bible distribution point      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
China (MNN) -- Mission Cry’s Jason Woolford calls Hong Kong “a melting pot.” “There are so many people from Indonesia and Africa and other places who are coming to Hong Kong,” Woolford says. So what better place to distribute Christian literature and reach a wide audience? We have an incredible opportunity right now, and that opportunity is to send over a half a million dollars worth of free Bibles and Christian books,” Woolford says. Woolford reports that stores in Beijing are pulling Bibles from shelves, and online stores often do not carry electronic Bibles. But even though they’re tough to get to in many parts of China, one BIble can still change someone’s life. “We’re not just sending a Bible, [it doesn’t stop at] giving someone the ability to have their eternity changed forever. The Word creates a difference in a father, a mother, a husband, a wife, an entire family, and even the culture.” Mission Cry is planning on distributing the resources via a minister they’re partnered with in Hong Kong. “He said, ‘Listen, I have the opportunity through business to get these containers released, and if you get them to me, I can get them into the hands of people that need them.’” This minister goes downtown in Hong Kong and sits between massive stacks of books and Bibles playing worship songs on his keyboard. As he plays, he passes out free literature. It works so well that even other religious groups are taking notice. “We’ve had such success… that Muslims are setting up across the street and trying to mimic us and do what we’re doing to hand out the Koran.”

If their success is going to continue, they’re going to need a new shipment. If they’re going to send a new shipment, they’re going to need your support. -need $10,900 to ship the container “We have the opportunity to give away a minimum of 40,000 Bibles and Christian books for free in Hong Kong and get them in mainland China, and we need people to come alongside of us and say ‘we’re gonna help support and get that overseas,’” Woolford says. They need just over $10,000 to be able to fund the shipment. If you want to help contribute part of that, click right here. You can even send books directly to Mission Cry with the information on their website. But most of all, pray that each and every piece of literature in that crate will have the most impact it can have thanks to the power of the Holy Spirit. “Someday, someone from Hong Kong will be able to say in Heaven, ‘It was me that was saved, it was me that was able to read the Word and hear that God’s still a healer.’”

Company Reports Record Second Quarter Revenue and Earnings

Strong Global Demand Environment and Revenue Initiatives Drive Increase in Full Year Adjusted EPS Guidance Above High-end of Previous Guidance Range

Company’s Growth Profile Extended with Confirmation of Two Additional Leonardo Class Ships for Delivery in 2026 and 2027

Company Executed $200 Million in Share Repurchases in the Quarter Under its $1 Billion Share Repurchase Program

MIAMI, Aug. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: NCLH) (together with NCL Corporation Ltd., “Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings”, “Norwegian” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018, as well as provided guidance for the third quarter and full year 2018.

Highlights

  • The Company generated GAAP net income of $226.7 million or EPS of $1.01 compared to $198.5 million or $0.87 in the prior year.  Adjusted Net Income was $271.9 million or Adjusted EPS of $1.21 compared to $232.7 million or $1.02 in the prior year.  Adjusted EPS outperformed guidance by $0.19.
  • Total revenue increased 13.2% to $1.5 billion. Gross Yield increased 4.3%.  Net Yield increased 4.0% on a Constant Currency basis, outperforming guidance by 200 basis points.
  • The Company expects to generate record earnings for full year 2018 and has increased its outlook above the high end of its previous guidance range, with Adjusted EPS now expected to be in the range of $4.70 to $4.80. This includes an expected $0.10 impact, split evenly between revenue and expense, as a result of the recently announced itinerary optimization initiatives which will benefit future periods. Excluding this impact, the midpoint of Adjusted EPS guidance would have increased to approximately $4.85.
  • 2018 full year Net Yield growth guidance on a Constant Currency basis increased 75 basis points from prior guidance to approximately 3.25%, or 125 basis points from the Company’s initial full year outlook provided in February.

“The continuation of the robust booking environment from our core source markets, combined with the successful execution of demand creation strategies drove higher pricing across all three brands, resulting in second quarter revenue, yield and earnings growth well above expectations,” said Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.  “Global consumer cruise demand shows no signs of slowing as evidenced by solid organic growth and the hugely successful introduction of Norwegian Bliss, whose record-breaking performance surpassed our high expectations. The strong demand environment is expected to continue driving higher pricing in the back half of the year, leading to an increase of our full year 2018 Adjusted EPS outlook to a range of $4.70 to $4.80, well above the initial guidance range set at the beginning of the year.”

Second Quarter 2018 Results

GAAP net income was $226.7 million or EPS of $1.01 compared to $198.5 million or $0.87 in the prior year.  The Company generated Adjusted Net Income of $271.9 million or Adjusted EPS of $1.21 compared to $232.7 million or $1.02 in the prior year. 

Revenue increased 13.2% to $1.5 billion compared to $1.3 billion in 2017.  Net Revenue increased 13.7% to $1.2 billion compared to $1.0 billion in 2017.  These increases were primarily attributed to strong organic pricing growth across all core markets along with an increase in Capacity Days due to the addition of Norwegian Joy to the fleet in the second quarter of 2017 and Norwegian Bliss to the fleet in the second quarter of 2018, partially offset by three scheduled Dry-docks during the period.  Gross Yield increased 4.3% and Net Yield increased 4.0% on a Constant Currency basis and 4.7% on an as reported basis.

Total cruise operating expense increased 14.7% in 2018 compared to 2017 primarily due to the increase in Capacity Days.  Gross Cruise Costs per Capacity Day increased 6.0% due to an increase in maintenance and repairs including Dry-dock expenses and an increase in marketing, general and administrative expenses. Adjusted Net Cruise Cost Excluding Fuel per Capacity Day increased 7.4% on a Constant Currency basis and 8.4% on an as reported basis.

Fuel price per metric ton, net of hedges increased to $481 from $469 in 2017.  The Company reported fuel expense of $95.2 million in the period. 

Interest expense, net was $73.0 million in 2018 compared to $64.2 million in 2017. The increase in interest expense reflects additional debt in connection with the delivery of Norwegian Bliss in April 2018, the delivery of Norwegian Joy in April 2017, Project Leonardo financing, as well as higher interest rates due to an increase in LIBOR, partially offset by the benefit from the full redemption in October 2017 of our 4.625% Senior Notes due 2020 and $135.0 million partial redemption in April 2018 of our 4.75% Senior Notes due 2021. Also included in 2018 is the $6.3 million of redemption premium and write-off of fees in connection with the partial redemption mentioned above.

Other income (expense), net was income of $12.9 million in 2018 compared to an expense of $5.6 million in 2017. In 2018, the income was primarily related to gains on foreign currency exchange. In 2017, the expense was primarily related to losses on foreign currency exchange and unrealized and realized losses on derivatives.

Company Outlook

“2018 is well on track for yet another year of record financial performance. Furthermore, robust global demand has accelerated year-over-year gains in occupancy and pricing for full year 2019, which remains well ahead of this year’s record levels across all three brands,” continued Del Rio.  “We have a high level of confidence and strong conviction in our outlook for 2019 and beyond as demonstrated by our recent global redeployment initiatives, the bolstering of our measured growth profile with the confirmation of two additional Leonardo Class ships for delivery in 2026 and 2027, as well as the opportunistic execution of $200 million in share repurchases in the quarter, bringing the year-to-date total for share repurchases to over $450 million.”

2018 Guidance and Sensitivities

In addition to announcing the results for the second quarter, the Company also provided guidance for the third quarter and full year 2018, along with accompanying sensitivities. The Company does not provide guidance on a GAAP basis because the Company is unable to predict, with reasonable certainty, the future movement of foreign exchange rates or the future impact of certain gains and charges. These items are uncertain and will depend on several factors, including industry conditions, and could be material to the Company’s results computed in accordance with GAAP. The Company has not provided reconciliations between the Company’s 2018 guidance and the most directly comparable GAAP measures because it would be too difficult to prepare a reliable U.S. GAAP quantitative reconciliation without unreasonable effort.

Company Updates and Other Business Highlights

Norwegian Bliss Launch and Christening

Norwegian Cruise Line took delivery of its sixteenth ship, the 168,028 gross ton Norwegian Bliss, from Meyer Werft in April.  Following a month and a half tour that began in Bremerhaven, Germany and continued around the United States and included previews in New York, Miami and Los Angeles, Norwegian Bliss was officially christened in her summer home of Seattle, Washington on May 31.  The christening ceremony held aboard the vessel was broadcasted throughout the ship’s multiple venues to the over 2,500 guests in attendance. Following the official bottle-break led by Godfather Elvis Duran, a bevy of stars performed in six different venues including the Bliss Theater where three-time Grammy® award-winning rock band, Train, performed fan-favorite songs.

Norwegian Cruise Line Announced Enhancements to its 2019 and 2020 Itineraries

In July, Norwegian Cruise Line announced changes to its 2019 and 2020 deployments to capitalize on the strong global demand environment and leverage the strategic benefits of a growing fleet to quickly seize sizeable opportunities in over performing, unserved and underserved markets to drive higher returns for shareholders.  In April 2019, Norwegian Joy will redeploy from Shanghai to Seattle to sail 7-day voyages to Alaska and in winter 2019/2020 will reposition to Los Angeles for a season of Mexican Riviera and Panama Canal voyages.  Norwegian Cruise Line remains committed to serving the Chinese cruise market by redeploying Norwegian Spirit seasonally to the region beginning in summer 2020.

Additionally, Norwegian Pearl, Jewel and Jade will expand the brand’s presence in Europe, Australia and Asia in 2019.  Norwegian Pearl will redeploy to Europe in summer 2019 offering varied itineraries throughout Northern Europe from Amsterdam, a new homeport for the line.  In winter 2019/20, Norwegian Jewel will return to Australia for a third year of seasonal sailings from Sydney and new voyages departing from Auckland, New Zealand, and Norwegian Jade will offer a season of sailings throughout Southeast Asia departing from Singapore and Hong Kong.

Norwegian Cruise Line Confirms Options for Fifth and Sixth Ships in Next Generation of Newbuilds

The Company confirmed its previously announced options for the fifth and sixth Project Leonardo Class ships with Fincantieri S.p.A. for Norwegian Cruise Line for delivery in 2026 and 2027, contingent on the Company’s entry into committed financing arrangements.  At 140,000 gross tons and accommodating approximately 3,300 guests, this next generation class of ships will build upon the highly successful offering of freedom and flexibility found across Norwegian Cruise Line’s fleet, including the most recent Breakaway Plus Class ships, and feature a host of inventive designs that will further elevate its already award-winning guest experience. A priority of the prototype design is energy efficiency, with the aim of optimizing fuel consumption and reducing the impact on the environment. The smaller footprint will also broaden deployment opportunities around the world.

Appointment of Russell Galbut to Chairman of the Board and Mary Landry to Board of Directors

At the Company’s 2018 annual general meeting, the Board of Directors (the "Board") appointed Mr. Russell W. Galbut, an independent director of the Board, as Chairman of the Board. Mr. Galbut succeeded Mr. Walter Revell, who stepped down from Norwegian's Board after serving as Chairman for the past three years and on the Board for over two decades. In addition, the shareholders of the Company elected retired U.S. Coast Guard Rear Admiral Mary E. Landry as a new independent director.  With the election of Ms. Landry, Norwegian’s Board consists of 10 members, seven of whom are independent. Ms. Landry also serves as a member of the Company’s Nominating and Governance Committee.

Company Joins Ocean Conservancy’s Trash Free Seas Alliance®

In June, Norwegian announced its partnership with Ocean Conservancy to protect and ensure the long-term health of our oceans. The Company will join several of the world’s leading corporations and organizations in Ocean Conservancy’s Trash Free Seas Alliance®, actively working toward solutions that will mitigate plastic waste entering the ocean.  The Company recently announced an important next step in its efforts to reduce its environmental impact by eliminating single-use plastic straws across its fleet of 26 ships and two island destinations, Great Stirrup Cay and Harvest Caye, and anticipates eliminating over 50 million plastic straws each year across its fleet with these changes.  The membership in Ocean Conservancy’s Trash Free Seas Alliance® is part of the Company’s global environmental program, ‘Sail & Sustain’, which reflects the Company’s mission of providing truly exceptional cruise vacation experiences for all of its guests while minimizing its impact on the environment.

Norwegian Cruise Line Announced Cruise Freedom™

Norwegian Cruise Line recently announced their partnership with award-winning technology-solutions leader DeCurtis Corporation for a new technology platform project - Cruise Freedom™.  This strategic decision is a major next step in leveraging technology that meaningfully enhances the guest experience from the moment of booking throughout their cruise. On the heels of introducing the launch of the new fully integrated Cruise Norwegian app in December, Norwegian Cruise Line's partnership with DeCurtis is the second stage in its ongoing objective to elevate the guest experience and push the limits of innovation via technology on its young and modern fleet. Phased implementation will begin later this year, with preliminary elements launching on Norwegian Bliss in late 2018, followed by Norwegian Encore in the fall of 2019.

Record Bookings for Regent Seven Seas Splendor

In June, Regent Seven Seas Cruises celebrated the keel laying ceremony for the ultra-luxurious ship, Seven Seas Splendor, at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy. During the ceremony, the first two of 210 blocks that will comprise the approximately 55,000 gross ton vessel were lifted into the Dry-dock, officially marking the start of the ship’s assembly in the Ancona shipyard.  Additionally, two extraordinary full-size suite models provided a first look at the ultimate accommodations and attention to detail guests will enjoy when the luxury ship debuts in 2020.  The highly anticipated Seven Seas Splendor had the best single booking day in the brand’s 26-year history upon opening reservations, accounting for a 32% increase over the previous all-time high.  Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural season will launch in February 2020 and feature a variety of destination-rich itineraries calling on iconic locations throughout the Caribbean, North America and Europe.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as Net Revenue, Net Yield, Net Cruise Cost, Adjusted Net Cruise Cost Excluding Fuel, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS, to enable us to analyze our performance. See “Terminology” for the definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures. We utilize Net Revenue and Net Yield to manage our business on a day-to-day basis and believe that they are the most relevant measures of our revenue performance because they reflect the revenue earned by us net of significant variable costs. In measuring our ability to control costs in a manner that positively impacts net income, we believe changes in Net Cruise Cost and Adjusted Net Cruise Cost Excluding Fuel to be the most relevant indicators of our performance.

As our business includes the sourcing of passengers and deployment of vessels outside of the U.S., a portion of our revenue and expenses are denominated in foreign currencies, particularly British pound, Canadian dollar, euro and Australian dollar, which are subject to fluctuations in currency exchange rates versus our reporting currency, the U.S. dollar. In order to monitor results excluding these fluctuations, we calculate certain non-GAAP measures on a Constant Currency basis whereby current period revenue and expenses denominated in foreign currencies are converted to U.S. dollars using currency exchange rates of the comparable period. We believe that presenting these non-GAAP measures on both a reported and Constant Currency basis is useful in providing a more comprehensive view of trends in our business.

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate as a supplemental financial measure as it is used by management to assess operating performance.  We also believe that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure in determining our performance as it reflects certain operating drivers of our business, such as sales growth, operating costs, marketing, general and administrative expense and other operating income and expense. Adjusted EBITDA is not a defined term under GAAP nor is it intended to be a measure of liquidity or cash flows from operations or a measure comparable to net income as it does not take into account certain requirements such as capital expenditures and related depreciation, principal and interest payments and tax payments and it includes other supplemental adjustments.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain amounts and are used to supplement GAAP net income and EPS. We use Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS as key performance measures of our earnings performance. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management’s internal comparison to our historical performance. In addition, management uses Adjusted EPS as a performance measure for our incentive compensation. The amounts excluded in the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures may vary from period to period; accordingly, our presentation of Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA may not be indicative of future adjustments or results.  For example, for the three and six  months ended June 30, 2018, we incurred $6.3 million related to the extinguishment of debt due to the partial redemption of our 4.750% Senior Notes due 2021. We included this as an adjustment in the reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income since the extinguishment of debt is not representative of our day-to-day operations and we have included similar adjustments in prior periods; however, this adjustment did not occur in the comparable prior periods presented with this release and is therefore not included in the prior period’s reconciliation.

You are encouraged to evaluate each adjustment used in calculating our non-GAAP financial measures and the reasons we consider our non-GAAP financial measures appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating our non-GAAP financial measures, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses similar to the adjustments in our presentation. Our non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Our presentation of our non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other companies. Please see a historical reconciliation of these measures to the most comparable GAAP measure presented in our consolidated financial statements below.
