   <p>Meitu is evolving into a social platform. The evolution takes three stages: from tool, to community, to social media. In the first "tool" stage, Meitu successfully dominated photo-related internet traffic by meeting users' needs for photo editing and image enhancement. Meitu is currently in its second "community" stage, focusing on helping users create and share engaging content within the community. In the third "social media" stage, the focus will be on building relational connections among users. </p>
   <p>As an effort to test out the market, Meitu soft launched the community feature "Social Circle" in May. Feedback has been encouraging: each day, core users spend an average of 25 minutes on Social Circle, launch the app 8 times, and view over 75 pages. Linking tools aimed at creating an interconnected community have also proven to be effective. For example, the "Collage of Hearts" feature drove a 29% increase in DAU and created dynamic interactions between users. 41% of new users posted their collage of hearts creation as their first action in the community. </p>
   <p>Given such positive feedback, the Meitu App is poised for its biggest upgrade in a decade. Beginning <span class="xn-chron">September 21</span>, Social Circle will be featured prominently in the Meitu app's homepage, right underneath the tool section. The new version will also allow users to scroll down for more community feeds. </p> 
   <p>"While image-based social media has a massive overseas market, there has been no such counterpart in <span class="xn-location">China</span>. Meitu is set to become a one-stop solution: after processing their photos, users can share right here on the Meitu app," said Wu Xinhong, CEO and Founder of Meitu. </p>
   <p>Along with the Meitu app's social media development comes a new slogan that highlights individuality and an ideal way of life: "<span class="xn-person">My Life</span>, <span class="xn-person">My Style</span>". "My" refers to the individual: younger generations have a strong desire to project their internal self on the world and express their own personality and views. In doing so, they discover and attract people who share their interests,&nbsp;their community. "Life &amp; Style" refers to an ideal way of life – users can share their own ideal way of life, while understanding that of others. The slogan is inspired by the revelation that everyone is looking for their vision of beauty and an ideal lifestyle, a need that is far from being met in today's social media landscape. </p>
   <p>Evolving from community to social media involves three key aspects: making every user feel present, building relational connections, and facilitating interactions among users. "Meitu aims to deliver the best lifestyle community in 2018, and further explore the possibilities of social media in 2019," added Wu Xinghong. </p>
   <p><b>Meipai: "Pan-Knowledge" Repositioning and New Social Features </b></p>
   <p>Meipai will be repositioned to a "pan-knowledge" short video sharing platform. Differentiating itself from other "pan-entertainment" focused products, Meipai aims to add value for users by focusing on the sharing of people's talent, skills and experiences, i.e. "pan knowledge". With the new slogan, "Talent worth sharing", Meipai enables its users to share and learn new dance moves, perform magic tricks or skateboard, apply makeup, do yoga and make dessert, play the Rubik's cube, do crafts, etc. Meipai has a solid foundation for further development: Meipai's content library now includes over 300 sub-genres and more than 30,000 key opinion leaders. Meipai has also partnered with more than 50 top short video MCN organizations. </p>
   <p>Meipai will continue to evolve under the new positioning. The homepage is currently being revamped to be more discovery-oriented, which is better suited toward pan-knowledge content: this is because pan-knowledge seekers are more self-motivated and interested in actively exploring things. Meipai will also release new features to encourage social interactions. A "homework" feature will be released in the following month. The feature will allow users to, for example, upload their own video as a comment beneath the original dance tutorial video. </p>
   <p>"2017 has been a year of both excitement and reflection for the short video industry. We reposition Meipai under the guiding philosophy of developing in a sustainable and healthy manner," said Wu Xinghong. </p>
   <p><b>Reorganize into Three Business Units, including </b><b>A Dedicated Social Product Business Unit</b></p>
   <p>In conjunction with the strategic direction, Meitu will reform its corporate structure toward becoming a product-driven company. Effective <span class="xn-chron">August 8th</span>, Meitu will be divided into three major business units: the Social Product Business Unit, the Beauty Product Business Unit and the Smart Hardware Product Business Unit. The establishment of a dedicated social product unit will consist of both the Meitu and Meipai brands. </p>
   <p>Each business unit is encouraged to innovate independently in every aspect of the business to maximize the value of capital and human resources. </p>
   <p><b>Refine the Relationship between Infrastructure and Commercial Products</b></p>
   <p>Meitu's new strategic direction also calls for refining the relationship between infrastructure and commercial products. </p>
   <p>Photo editing has been Meitu's key entry point to the online world and essential to Meitu's success in the past decade. It has been instrumental in helping the company grow its user base and will drive traffic to the social platform in the future. In addition, social media products will increase Meitu's stickiness and traffic value. They will generate data on additional dimensions that helps Meitu further understand user behavior. This serves as Meitu's infrastructure. </p> 
   <p>The advertising platform serves as a traffic distribution mechanism, a business product that matches users with advertisements. The outer layer is Meitu's "beauty ecosystem" of commercial products, including smart hardware, an e-commerce platform, and value-added services, with more to come. "Beauty and social media are our strategic focus for Meitu's second decade and a long-term goal. There are bound to be bumps on the road ahead, with some things going smoother than others, but that will not shake our conviction," said Wu Xinhong. </p>

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.

          ASEAN members seek increase in bilateral investments with Qatar      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Malaysia's Ambassador to Qatar HE Dato' Ahmad Fadil Bin Shamsuddin expressed the interest of the embassies of the ASEAN member countries in increasing bilateral investments between Qatar and Southeast Asia through their business communities during the celebration of the 51st anniversary of the establishment of ASEAN held on Wednesday. 

The gathering hosted by the Malaysian Embassy as current chairman of the ASEAN Committee in Doha was attended by ambassadors and charge d'affaires of embassies of Brunei, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines. It was graced by Deputy Director of Asian Department at Qatar's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Rashid al Dehaimi and other diplomats of ASEAN embassies.

On the occasion, Ambassador Fadil underlined the impact of the state visits of the Amir His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani to Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore last year. He added that the proposed high-level visits to Vietnam and the Philippines this year will further enhance opportunities for the development of partnership between Qatar and the regional bloc. Similarly, the Malaysian Ambassador conveyed the interest of the ASEAN to deepen its cooperation with international partners, including the GCC. ASEAN's official partnership with Qatar is through the GCC. Ambassador Fadil said Qatar plays an important role in connecting these two regions through its engagement in fostering synergies between ASEAN and the GCC. 

"On the economic aspects, the ASEAN-GCC Free Trade Area will become an important part for other areas in the future. Both organisations agreed to promote greater understanding with a view to forge closer economic cooperation and integration, including exploring the possibility of developing a trade and investment framework agreement. I believe that ASEAN and the GCC, in particular Qatar, stand to gain from each other's prosperity. Both groupings should now start a dialogue aiming to find an adequate balance between our interests," the Ambassador said. 

Ambassador Fadil also brought to the fore the impressive growth and remarkable progress of ASEAN economically. Last year, the ASEAN economy was the third largest in Asia and the seventh largest market in the world with a combined GDP exceeding US$ 2.6 trillion. ASEAN has registered a strong pace of 5.1 percent in 2017. For 2018, GDP growth rate is projected at 5.3 percent with positive trends observed across all ASEAN member states. Its population is currently at 633 million. "ASEAN was established with the main aim to maintain peace, security, stability and prosperity in the region. Throughout the past five decades, ASEAN has maintained its principles of 'respect, non-intervention and consensus decision-making'. These principles are the key to ASEAN's success and continuous stability proving to the world that close consultations and dialogue are the key foundations of an enduring partnership," Ambassador Fadil said.

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, A NEW COHORT OF PROGRESSIVES IS RUNNING FOR—AND WINNING—ELECTIONS. The stunning victory of democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Democratic congressional primary in New York is perhaps the most well-known, but she is far from alone. Most of these candidates are young, more than usual are people of color, many are women, several are Muslims, at least one is a refugee, at least one is transgender—and all are unabashedly left. Most come to electoral politics after years of activism around issues like immigration, climate and racism. They come out of a wide range of social movements and support policy demands that reflect the principles of those movements: labor rights, immigrant and refugee rights, women’s and gender rights, equal access to housing and education, environmental justice, and opposition to police violence and racial profiling. Some, though certainly not all, identify not just with the policies of socialism but with the fundamental core values and indeed the name itself, usually in the form of democratic socialism.

Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American woman in Detroit, just won the Democratic primary for the legendary Congressman John Conyers’ seat. Four women, two of them members of Democratic Socialists of America and all four endorsed by DSA, beat their male incumbent opponents in Pennsylvania state house primaries. Tahirah Amatul-Wadud is running an insurgent campaign for Congress against a longstanding incumbent in western Massachusetts, keeping her focus on Medicare-for-All and civil rights. Minnesota State Rep. Ilhan Omar, a former Somali refugee, won endorsement from the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, and is running for Keith Ellison’s former congressional seat as an “intersectional feminist.” And there are more.

Many highlight their movement experience in their campaigns; they are champions of immigrant rights, healthcare, student debt organizing and the fight for $15. Intersectionality has grown stronger, as the extremism of Trump’s right-wing racist assault creates significant new gains in linking separate movements focused on racism, women’s rights, immigrant rights, climate, poverty, labor rights and more.

But mostly, we’re not seeing progressive and socialist candidates clearly link domestic issues with efforts to challenge war, militarism and the war economy. There are a few exceptions: Congressional candidate and Hawaii State Rep. Kaniela Ing speaks powerfully about U.S. colonialism in Hawaii, and Virginia State Rep. Lee J. Carter has spoken strongly against U.S. bombing of Syria, linking current attacks with the legacy of U.S. military interventions. There may be more. But those are exceptions; most of the new left candidates focus on crucial issues of justice at home.

A progressive foreign policy must reject U.S. military and economic domination and instead be grounded in global cooperation, human rights, respect for international law and privileging diplomacy over war.

It’s not that progressive leaders don’t care about international issues, or that our movements are divided. Despite too many common assumptions, it is not political suicide for candidates or elected officials to stake out progressive anti-war, anti-militarism positions. Quite the contrary: Those positions actually have broad support within both our movements and public opinion. It’s just that it’s hard to figure out the strategies that work to connect internationally focused issues, anti-war efforts, or challenges to militarism, with the wide array of activists working on locally grounded issues. Some of those strategies seem like they should be easy—like talking about slashing the 53 cents of every discretionary federal dollar that now goes to the military as the easiest source to fund Medicare-for-all or free college education. It should be easy, but somehow it’s not: Too often, foreign policy feels remote from the urgency of domestic issues facing such crises. When our movements do figure out those strategies, candidates can easily follow suit.

Candidates coming out of our movements into elected office will need clear positions on foreign policy. Here are several core principles that should shape those positions.

A progressive foreign policy must reject U.S. military and economic domination and instead be grounded in global cooperation, human rights, respect for international law and privileging diplomacy over war. That does not mean isolationism, but instead a strategy of diplomatic engagement rather than—not as political cover for—destructive U.S. military interventions that have so often defined the U.S. role in the world.

Looking at the political pretexts for what the U.S. empire is doing around the world today, a principled foreign policy might start by recognizing that there is no military solution to terrorism and that the global war on terror must be ended.

More broadly, the militarization of foreign policy must be reversed and diplomacy must replace military action in every venue, with professional diplomats rather than the White House’s political appointees in charge. Aspiring and elected progressive and socialist office-holders should keep in mind the distinction between the successes and failures of Obama’s foreign policy. The victories were all diplomatic: moving towards normalization with Cuba, the Paris climate accord and especially the Iran nuclear deal. Obama’s greatest failures—in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen—all occurred because the administration chose military action over robust diplomacy.

Certainly, diplomacy has been a tool in the arsenal of empires, including the United States. But when we are talking about official policies governing relations between countries, diplomacy—meaning talking, negotiating and engaging across a table—is always, always better than engaging across a battlefield.

A principled foreign policy must recognize how the war economy has distorted our society at home—and commit to reverse it. The $717 billion of the military budget is desperately needed for jobs, healthcare and education here at home—and for a diplomatic surge and humanitarian and reconstruction assistance to people of countries devastated by U.S. wars and sanctions.

A principled foreign policy must acknowledge how U.S. actions—military, economic and climate-related—have been a driving force in displacing people around the world. We therefore have an enormous moral as well as legal obligation to take the lead in providing humanitarian support and refuge for those displaced—so immigration and refugee rights are central to foreign policy.

For too long the power of the U.S. empire has dominated international relations, led to the privileging of war over diplomacy on a global scale, and created a vast—and invasive—network of 800-plus military bases around the world.

Now, overall U.S. global domination is actually shrinking, and not only because of Trump’s actions. China’s economy is rapidly catching up, and its economic clout in Africa and elsewhere eclipses that of the United States. It’s a measure of the United States’ waning power that Europe, Russia and China are resisting U.S. efforts to impose new global sanctions on Iran. But the United States is still the world’s strongest military and economic power: Its military spending vastly surpasses that of the eight next strongest countries, it is sponsoring a dangerous anti-Iran alliance between Israel and the wealthy Gulf Arab states, it remains central to NATO decision-making, and powerful forces in Washington threaten new wars in North Korea and Iran. The United States remains dangerous.

Progressives in Congress have to navigate the tricky task of rejecting American exceptionalism. That means recognizing that it is often a good thing when U.S. global military and economic efforts fail, because they are generally aimed at maintaining domination and control. Without that U.S. domination, the possibility arises of a new kind of internationalism: to prevent and solve crises that arise from current and potential wars, to promote nuclear disarmament, to come up with climate solutions and to protect refugees.

That effort is increasingly important because of the rapid rise of right-wing xenophobic authoritarians seeking and winning power. Trump is now leading and enabling an informal global grouping of such leaders, from Egypt’s Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to Victor Orban in Hungary and others. Progressive elected officials in the United States can pose an important challenge to that authoritarian axis by building ties with their like-minded counterparts in parliaments and governments—possibilities include Jeremy Corbyn in the United Kingdom and Andrés Manuel López Obrador in Mexico, among others. And progressive and leftist members of Congress will need to be able to work together with social movements to build public pressure for diplomatic initiatives not grounded in the interests of U.S. empire.

In addition to these broad principles, candidates and elected officials need critical analyses of current U.S. engagement around the world, as well as nuanced prescriptions for how to de-escalate militarily, and ramp up a new commitment to serious diplomacy.

GEOPOLITICAL POWER PLAYS

RUSSIA: Relations with Russia will be a major challenge for the foreseeable future. With 90 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons in U.S. and Russian hands, and the two powers deploying military forces on opposite sides of active battlefronts in Syria, it is crucial that relations remain open—not least to derail potential escalations and ensure the ability to stand down from any accidental clash.

Progressives and leftists in Congress will need to promote a nuanced, careful approach to Russia policy. And they will face a daunting environment in which to do so. They will have to deal with loud cries from right-wing war-mongers, mainly Republicans, and from neo-con interventionists in both parties, demanding a one-sided anti-Russia policy focused on increased sanctions and potentially even military threats. But many moderate and liberal Democrats—and much of the media—are also joining the anti-Russia crusade. Some of those liberals and moderates have likely bought into the idea of American exceptionalism, accepting as legitimate or irrelevant the long history of U.S. election meddling around the world and viewing the Russian efforts as somehow reaching a whole different level of outrageousness. Others see the anti-Russia mobilization solely in the context of undermining Trump.

But at the same time, progressive Congress members should recognize that reports of Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 and 2018 elections cannot be dismissed out of hand. They should continue to demand that more of the evidence be made public, and condemn the Russian meddling that has occurred, even while recognizing that the most serious threats to our elections come from voter suppression campaignsat home more than from Moscow. And they have to make clear that Trump’s opponents cannot be allowed to turn the president’s infatuation with Vladimir Putin into the basis for a new Cold War, simply to oppose Trump.

CHINA: The broad frame of a progressive approach should be to end Washington’s provocative military and economic moves and encourage deeper levels of diplomatic engagement. This means replacing military threats with diplomacy in response to Chinese moves in the South China Sea, as well as significant cuts in the ramped-up military ties with U.S. allies in the region, such as Vietnam. Progressive and socialist members of Congress and other elected officials will no doubt be aware that the rise of China’s economic dominance across Africa, and its increasing influence in parts of Latin America, could endanger the independence of countries in those parts of the Global South. But they will also need to recognize that any U.S. response to what looks like Chinese exploitation must be grounded in humility, acknowledging the long history of U.S. colonial and neocolonial domination throughout those same regions. Efforts to compete with Chinese economic assistance by increasing Washington’s own humanitarian and development aid should mean directing all funds through the UN, rather than through USAID or the Pentagon. That will make U.S. assistance far less likely to be perceived as—and to be—an entry point for exploitation.

NATO: A progressive position on NATO flies straight into the face of the partisan component of the anti-Trump resistance—the idea that if Trump is for it, we should be against it. For a host of bad reasons that have to do with personal enrichment and personal power, Trump sometimes takes positions that large parts of the U.S. and global anti-war and solidarity movements have long supported. One of those is NATO. During the Cold War, NATO was the European military face of U.S.-dominated Western anti-Communism and anti-Sovietism. With the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, peace activists from around the world called for the dissolution of NATO as an anachronistic relic whose raison d’etre was now gone.

Instead, NATO used its 50th anniversary in 1999 to rebrand itself as defending a set of amorphous, ostensibly “Western” values such as democracy, rather than having any identifiable enemy—something like a military version of the EU, with the United States on board for clout. Unable to win UN Security Council support for war in Kosovo, the United States and its allies used NATO to provide so-called authorization for a major bombing campaign—in complete violation of international law—and began a rapid expansion of the NATO alliance right up to the borders of Russia. Anti-war forces across the world continued to rally around the call “No to NATO”—a call to dissolve the alliance altogether.

But when Trump, however falsely, claims to call for an end to the alliance, or shows disdain for NATO, anti-Trump politicians and media lead the way in embracing the military alliance as if it really did represent some version of human rights and international law. It doesn’t—and progressives in elected positions need to be willing to call out NATO as a militarized Cold War relic that shouldn’t be reconfigured to maintain U.S. domination in Europe or to mobilize against Russia or China or anyone else. It should be ended.

In fact, Trump’s claims to oppose NATO are belied by his actions. In his 2019 budget request he almost doubled the 2017 budget for the Pentagon’s “European Deterrence Initiative,” designed explicitly as a response to “threats from Russia.” There is a huge gap between Trump’s partisan base-pleasing condemnation of NATO and his administration&rdqou;s actual support for strengthening the military alliance. That contradiction should make it easier for progressive candidates and officeholders to move to cut NATO funding and reduce its power—not because Trump is against NATO but because the military alliance serves as a dangerous provocation toward war.

THE WAR ON TERROR

What George W. Bush first called “the global war on terror” is still raging almost 17 years later, though with different forms of killing and different casualty counts. Today’s reliance on airstrikes, drone attacks and a few thousand special forces has replaced the hundreds of thousands of U.S. and allied ground troops. And today hardly any U.S. troops are being killed, while civilian casualties are skyrocketing across the Middle East and Afghanistan. Officials from the Bush, Obama and Trump administrations have repeated the mantra that “there is no military solution” in Afghanistan, Syria, or Iraq or against terrorism, but their actions have belied those words. Progressive elected officials need to consistently remind the public and their counterparts that it is not possible to bomb terrorism out of existence. Bombs don’t hit “terrorism”; they hit cities, houses, wedding parties. And on those rare occasions when they hit the people actually named on the White House&rdqou;s unaccountable kill list, or “terrorist” list, the impact often creates more terrorists.

The overall progressive policy on this question means campaigning for diplomatic solutions and strategies instead of military ones. That also means joining the ongoing congressional efforts led by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and others  to challenge the continued reliance on the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMF).

In general, privileging diplomatic over war strategies starts with withdrawing troops and halting the arms sales that flood the region with deadly weapons. Those weapons too often end up in the hands of killers on all sides, from bands of unaccountable militants to brutally repressive governments, with civilians paying the price. Congress members should demand an end of massive arms sales to Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other U.S. allies carrying out brutal wars across the Middle East, and they should call for an end to the practice of arming non-state proxies who kill even more people. They should call for a U.S. arms embargo on Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, Jordan and Israel (which presents a whole other set of arms-related challenges), while urging Russia to stop its arms sales to Syria, Iran and Pakistan. Given the power of the arms industries in the United States, arms embargoes are the most difficult—but perhaps the most important—part of ending the expanding Middle East wars.

Progressives in Congress should demand real support for UN-sponsored and other international peace initiatives, staffing whole new diplomatic approaches whose goal is political solutions rather than military victories—and taking funds out of military budgets to cover the costs. The goal should be to end these endless wars—not try to “win&rdqou; them.

ISRAEL-PALESTINE: The most important thing for candidates to know is that there has been a massive shift in public opinion in recent years. It is no longer political suicide to criticize Israel. Yes, AIPAC and the rest of the right-wing Jewish, pro-Israel lobbies remain influential and have a lot of money to throw around. (The Christian Zionist lobbies are powerful too, but there is less political difficulty for progressives to challenge them.) But there are massive shifts underway in U.S. Jewish publicopinion on the conflict, and the lobbies cannot credibly claim to speak for the Jewish community as a whole.

Outside the Jewish community, the shift is even more dramatic, and has become far more partisan: Uncritical support for Israel is now overwhelmingly a Republican position. Among Democrats, particularly young Democrats, support for Israel has fallen dramatically; among Republicans, support for Israel’s far-right government is sky-high. The shift is particularly noticeable among Democrats of color, where recognition of the parallels between Israeli oppression of Palestinians and the legacies of Jim Crow segregation in the United States and apartheid in South Africa is rising rapidly.

U.S. policy, unfortunately, has not kept up with that changing discourse. But modest gains are evident even there. When nearly 60 members of the House and Senate openly skipped Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech when he came to lobby Congress to vote against President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, the sky didn’t fall. The snub to the Israeli prime minister was unprecedented, but no one lost their seat because of it. Rep. Betty McCollum’s bill to protect Palestinian children from Israel’s vicious military juvenile detention system (the only one in the world) now has 29 co-sponsors, and the sky still isn’t falling. Members of Congress are responding more frequently to Israeli assaults on Gaza and the killing of protesters, often because of powerful movements among their constituents. When Trump moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the Israeli daily Ha’aretz acknowledged the divide: “While members of the Republican Party overwhelmingly expressed support for the move, Democrats were split between those who congratulated Trump for it and those who called it a dangerous and irresponsible action.”

That creates space for candidates and newly elected officials to respond to the growing portion of their constituencies that supports Palestinian rights. Over time, they must establish a rights-based policy. That means acknowledging that the quarter-century-long U.S.-orchestrated “peace process” based on the never-serious pursuit of a solution, has failed. Instead, left and progressive political leaders can advocate for a policy that turns over real control of diplomacy to the UN, ends support for Israeli apartheid and occupation, and instead supports a policy based on international law, human rights and equality for all, without privileging Jews or discriminating against non-Jews.

To progress from cautiously urging that Israel abide by international law, to issuing a full-scale call to end or at least reduce the $3.8 billion per year that Congress sends straight to the Israeli military, might take some time. In the meantime, progressive candidates must prioritize powerful statements condemning the massacre of unarmed protesters in Gaza and massive Israeli settlement expansion, demands for real accountability for Israeli violations of human rights and international law (including reducing U.S. support in response), and calls for an end to the longstanding U.S. protection that keeps Israel from being held accountable in the UN.

The right consistently accuses supporters of Palestinian rights of holding Israel to a double standard. Progressives in Congress should turn that claim around on them and insist that U.S. policy towards Israel—Washington’s closest ally in the region and the recipient of billions of dollars in military aid every year—hold Israel to exactly the same standards that we want the United States to apply to every other country: human rights, adherence to international law and equality for all.

Many supporters of the new crop of progressive candidates, and many activists in the movements they come out of, are supporters of the increasingly powerful, Palestinian-led BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement, that aims to bring non-violent economic pressure to bear on Israel until it ends its violations of international law. This movement deserves credit for helping to mainstream key demands—to end the siege of Gaza and the killing of protesters, to support investigations of Israeli violations by the International Criminal Court, to oppose Israel’s new “nation-state’ law—that should all be on lawmakers’ immediate agenda.

AFGHANISTAN: More than 100,000 Afghans and 2,000 U.S. troops have been killed in a U.S. war that has raged for almost 17 years. Not-Yet-President Trump called for withdrawal from Afghanistan, but within just a few months after taking office he agreed instead to send additional troops, even though earlier deployments of more than 100,000 U.S. troops (and thousands more coalition soldiers) could not win a military victory over the Taliban. Corruption in the U.S.-backed and -funded Afghan government remains sky-high, and in just the past three years, the Pentagon has lost track of how $3.1 billion of its Afghanistan funds were spent. About 15,000 US troops are still deployed, with no hope of a military victory for the United States.

Progressive members of Congress should demand a safe withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan, acting on the long-held recognition that military force simply won’t work to bring about the political solution all sides claim to want.

Several pending bills also would reclaim the centrality of Congress’ role in authorizing war in general and in Afghanistan in particular—including ending the 2001 AUMF. Funding for humanitarian aid, refugee support, and in the future compensation and reparations for the massive destruction the U.S.-led war has wrought across the country, should all be on Congress’ agenda, understanding that such funding will almost certainly fail while U.S. troops are deployed.

IRAN: With U.S. and Iranian military forces facing each other in Syria, the potential for an unintentional escalation is sky-high. Even a truly accidental clash between a few Iranian and U.S. troops, or an Iranian anti-aircraft system mistakenly locking on to a U.S. warplane plane even if it didn’t fire, could have catastrophic consequences without immediate military-to-military and quick political echelon discussions to defuse the crisis. And with tensions very high, those ties are not routinely available. Relations became very dangerous when Trump withdrew the United States from the multi-lateral nuclear deal in May. (At that time, a strong majority of people in the United States favored the deal, and less than one in three wanted to pull out of it.)

The United States continues to escalate threats against Iran. It is sponsoring a growing regional anti-Iran alliance, with Israel and Saudi Arabia now publicly allied and pushing strongly for military action. And Trump has surrounded himself with war-mongers for his top advisers, including John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, who have both supported regime change in Iran and urged military rather than diplomatic approaches to Iran.

Given all that, what progressive elected officials need to do is to keep fighting for diplomacy over war. That means challenging U.S. support for the anti-Iran alliance and opposing sanctions on Iran. It means developing direct ties with parliamentarians from the European and other signatories to the Iran nuclear deal, with the aim of collective opposition to new sanctions, re-legitimizing the nuclear deal in Washington and reestablishing diplomacy as the basis for U.S. relations with Iran.

It should also mean developing a congressional response to the weakening of international anti-nuclear norms caused by the pull-out from the Iran deal. That means not just supporting the nonproliferation goals of the Iran nuclear deal, but moving further towards real disarmament and ultimately the abolition of nuclear weapons. Progressives in and outside of Congress should make clear that nuclear nonproliferation (meaning no one else gets to have nukes) can’t work in the long run without nuclear disarmament (meaning that the existing nuclear weapons states have to give them up). That could start with a demand for full U.S. compliance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which calls for negotiations leading to “nuclear disarmament, and on a treaty on general and complete disarmament.”

SYRIA: Progressive candidates and elected officials should support policies designed to end, not “win” the war. That means withdrawing troops, ceasing airstrikes and drone attacks, and calling for an arms embargo on all sides of the multiple proxy war. The civil war component of the multiple wars in Syria is winding down as the regime consolidates its control, but the sectarian, regional and global components of that war have not disappeared, so continuing a call for an arms embargo is still important. The first step is to permanently end the Pentagon’s and the CIA’s “arm and train” policies that have prolonged the war and empowered some of its most dangerous actors.

There will also need to be negotiations between the regional and global actors that have been waging their own wars in Syria, wars that have little to do with Syria itself, but with Syrians doing the bulk of the dying. That means support for the UN’s and other internationally-sponsored de-escalation efforts, and serious engagement with Russia towards a permanent ceasefire, as well as the arms embargo. U.S. policy should include absolute prohibitions on Washington’s regional allies—including Saudi Arabia and Turkey—sending U.S.-provided arms into Syria. And progressive supporters of diplomacy should also maintain pressure on the United States to back multi-lateral diplomatic processes organized by the UN and others—on humanitarian issues in Geneva, and political issues in Astana. Cutting the United States’ multi-billion dollar arms sales to Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Jordan, Turkey and other U.S. allies involved in the Syrian wars would also lend legitimacy to U.S. efforts within those diplomatic processes to press Russia to stop providing arms to the Assad regime.

IRAQ: Congress has largely abrogated its responsibilities even as the 15-year war initiated by the United States continues. Progressive policymakers would do well to join the existing efforts to end—not replace, but cancel—the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force against Saddam Hussein's government in Iraq, and reopen congressional debate, with the goal of ending funding for war in Iraq once and for all. When President Obama withdrew the last troops from Iraq at the end of 2011, stating that “war in Iraq ends this month,” many assumed that the authorization ended as well. But it was never officially repealed and had no expiration date, and three years later Obama claimed that the then-12-year-old authorization justified the war against ISIS in Iraq. While Trump has relied primarily on the 2001 AUMF, the Iraq-specific authorization of 2002 remains in place and should be withdrawn. 

In the meantime, progressives in Congress should support many of the same policies for Iraq as for Syria: withdraw the troops and special forces, stop the assassination program that is the heart of Washington’s “counter-terrorism” campaign and cease sending arms. Congress should end funding to force the closure of the network of small “forward operating bases” and other U.S. military bases that may remain in U.S. hands in Iraq despite earlier agreements to turn them over to the Iraqi government. The U.S. must figure out new ways to provide financial compensation and support to the people whose country and society has been shredded by more than a dozen years of crippling U.S.-led economic sanctions bookended by two devastating wars (Desert Storm, starting in 1991, and the Iraq War, starting in 2003)—while somehow avoiding the further empowerment of corrupt and sectarian political and military leaders.

YEMEN AND SAUDI ARABIA: The ongoing Saudi-led war against Yemen reflects the most deadly front of Saudi Arabia’s competition with Iran for regional hegemony. The United States is providing indirect and direct support, including U.S. Air Force pilots providing in-air refueling so Saudi and UAE warplanes can bomb Yemen more efficiently, and Green Berets fighting alongside Saudi troops on the border, in what the New York Times called “a continuing escalation of America’s secret wars.”

The U.S.-backed Saudi war against Yemen has also created what the UN has declared the world’s most serious humanitarian crisis. Congress’ first action must be to immediately end all U.S. involvement in the war. Next, Congress must reject all approvals for arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE as long as they continue to bomb and blockade Yemen.

Ending these arms sales may be a serious challenge, given the power of the arms manufacturers’ lobby, Israel’s strong support of Saudi Arabia against Iran and the fact that Saudi Arabia remains the top U.S. arms customer. But recent efforts and relatively close votes in both the House and Senate, while not successful, indicate that challenging the longstanding process of providing the Saudis with whatever weapons they want may be closer to reality than anticipated. The House called the U.S. military involvement in the Saudi war in Yemen “unauthorized.” Reps. Ro Khanna, Marc Pocan and others have introduced numerous House bills in recent months aimed at reducing U.S. arms sales and involvement in the Saudi-led assault. In the Senate, a March resolution to end U.S. military involvement in the Yemen war failed by only 11 votes, a much narrower margin than anticipated. Progressive candidates and new members of Congress should support all those efforts, and move further with a call for ending the longstanding U.S. alliance with Saudi Arabia, especially military sales and support for the Saudi-Israeli partnership against Iran.

A QUICK GLANCE AT SOME OTHER POLICY QUESTIONS

NORTH KOREA: Progressive elected officials will need to support Trump’s diplomatic initiatives, challenging mainstream Democrats willing to abandon diplomacy because Trump supports it (however tactically or temporarily). Progressives will also need to condemn U.S. military provocations that undermine that same diplomacy, and build public and congressional support for the inter-Korean diplomatic moves already underway. That should include pushing for exemptions in the U.S.-imposed sanctions that would allow inter-Korean economic and other initiatives to go forward. Progressives in Congress can also play a major role in supporting people-to-people diplomacy with North Korea, and they can lead the way in replacing the current armistice with a peace treaty finally ending the Korean War.

AFRICA: Across the continent, there is an urgent need to reverse the militarization of foreign policy, including reducing the size, breadth of responsibilities and theater of operations of AFRICOM.  The wide-ranging but unauthorized and largely secretive special operations and other military actions across the continent violate not only international law, but U.S. domestic law as well.

LATIN AMERICA: In Latin America, there is an urgent need for a new anti-interventionist policy, not least to stop the current attempts to take advantage of serious domestic crises in Venezuela, Nicaragua and elsewhere. Progressives will need to challenge the U.S. economic and foreign policies that create refugees from Central America in particular (including the consequences of the U.S. wars of the 1980s), even while fighting to protect those migrants seeking safety in the United States as a result of those earlier policies. Regarding Mexico, Congress needs to fight for a U.S. position in trade negotiations that is not based on economic nationalism, but rather on making sure that Mexican workers and U.S. workers are both equally lifted up. Left policymakers will also have the chance to play a leading role in forging a new relationship with Mexico’s just-elected progressive President Lopez-Obrador. 

All of the areas where U.S. wars are or were underway, as well as places where U.S. economic and climate policies have helped create crises threatening people’s lives, also become areas from which migrants are forced to flee their homes. U.S. policymakers must acknowledge that U.S. policies are direct causes of the refugee crises that exist in and around the war zones and climate crisis zones of the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere—and that the refugees seeking asylum in Europe, and the far fewer trying to come to the United States, are a consequence of those policies. So progressive candidates and policymakers should support massive expansion of funding for these victims of war, including humanitarian support in their home regions and acceptance of far greater numbers of refugees into the United States. They must directly challenge the xenophobic policies of the Trump administration that include the Muslim Ban, the separation of children from their families at the border and the vast reduction in refugees accepted into this country. In Congress, that might include introducing bills to cut funding for ICE or eliminate the institution altogether.

Finally, progressive candidates and elected officials will need to continue to craft policy proposals that recognize what happens when the U.S. wars come home. This requires more voices in Congress challenging the military budget because it’s used to kill people abroad and because the money is needed for jobs, health care and education at home. It means challenging Islamophobia rising across the United States because of how it threatens Muslims in the United States and because it is used to build support for wars against predominantly Muslim countries. It means exposing—on the floor of the House and beyond—the fact that the Muslim bans targeted primarily countries the United States was bombing, sanctioning or stationing soldiers in. And it means being clear that protecting refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants has to include ending the wars that create refugees in the first place.

Certainly, we shouldn’t expect every progressive or even every socialist running for national office to become an instant expert on every complicated piece of U.S. foreign policy. And for those running for state and local office, there may seem to be even less urgency. But we’ve seen how the Poor People’s Campaign, with its inclusion of militarism and the war economy as one of its four central targets (along with racism, poverty and environmental destruction), has demonstrated to all of our movements the importance of—and a model for—including an anti-war focus within multi-issue state and local mobilizations. The Movement for Black Lives has created one of the strongest internationalist and anti-war platforms we’ve seen in years—including calls for cutting the military budget, supporting Palestinian rights, stopping the Global War on Terror and the so-called War on Drugs, ending the militarized U.S. interventions across Africa, and linking U.S. military and economic policies with the rise in Haitian and other—predominantly Black—immigration.

Immigrant rights activists are linking movements for sanctuary (and against ICE) with opposition to the wars that create refugees. Campaignsare underway to reject the training of U.S. police by Israeli police and military forces. Battles are being waged to get local law enforcement agencies to refuse Pentagon offers of weapons and equipment left over from U.S. wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere. These campaigns all play out at the local and state level.

So especially for those running for Congress, but really for all candidates at every political level and venue in this country, there is a clear need for a strong, principled position on at least a few key foreign policy issues. And the key to making that happen still lies with our movements.

          Samsung Galaxy Note9 Price in the Philippines is PHP 75,990 for 512GB ROM Version      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The 2018 iteration to Samsung's popular Galaxy Note flagship phablet series has just been officially introduced here in the Philippines via an exclusive Unpacked media event held at Manila Marriott Hotel located in Pasay City.

Samsung Galaxy Note9 Philippines

Although it looks a lot like its predecessor from 2017, the all-new Samsung Galaxy Note9 comes with a handful of interesting enhancements and fresh features that will prove useful to consumers who use their smartphones to celebrate their passions to get things done.

Samsung Galaxy Note9 Philippines

The most notable enhancement comes in the form of the re-imagined S-Pen, which now has different albeit complementary color to the unit itself and can now work as a remote clicker for taking photos and browsing through presentation slides via Bluetooth connection.

Avid mobile photographers will surely appreciate the fact that the Note9 features largely the same Dual Rear Camera module with variable aperture as what's on the Samsung Galaxy S9+, which is still one of the best cameraphones out in the market.

Contrary to earlier predictions, though, this set-up doesn't have the new Samsung-Fujifilm ISOCELL Plus sensor that would have greatly boosted its low light performance. But what's good is that these cameras benefit from the company's own version of artificial imaging intelligence that instantly recognizes the subject in front of the lens and adjusts settings accordingly to deliver the best possible image.

Like previous Note models, this release delivers top-notch viewing experience anytime, anywhere -- thanks to its 6.4-inch QuadHD+ Infinity SuperAMOLED Display that looks downright stunning regardless of the viewing angle and even under direct sunlight.

Above the screen, Note9 sports an 8 MegaPixel f/1.7 front-facing shooter that features Samsung's own beautification software and lets you add cute and fun AR Stickers to your selfies. This front cam also records 1440p 30fps videos, which - along with the 4K 30fps and 1080p 240fps clips recorded using the primary rear cam - makes this model a great device for vlogging.

As for design and build, this phablet flaunts a glass-metal-glass construction that's IP68 Certified
Dust and Water Resistant, which means that it is protected against water-ingress even when submerged in a meter of liquid for up to 30 minutes.

At first glance, Note9 can appear almost identical to the Note8 -- but there are actually subtle differences. First, this model has a slightly larger footprint. Second, its aluminum mid-frame has diamond-cut chamfered lines. And third, its Fingerprint Scanner at the back has been repositioned below the Dual Rear Camera module for easier access using the pointer finger.

Great for power users, heavy mobile gamers, and prolific content creators, Samsung Galaxy Note9 delivers industry-leading mobile experience across the board with its 10nm Exynos 9810 Octa Processor, Mali-G72 MP18 GPU, Water Carbon Cooling System to prevent overheating when running resource intensive games and apps, plus 6GB and 8GB RAM options complemented by up to a whopping 512GB of internal storage that you can expand further using the secondary hybrid nanoSIM slot that can also take in a 512GB microSD card!

For audiophiles, the Note9 comes with an AKG loud speaker, which is easily the loudest and clearest speaker that's ever been put in a Galaxy smartphone. Play your favorite music tracks out loud and share the enjoyable audio experience with your friends.

Did you know that you can pair the Galaxy Note9 with any LED monitor to create a desktop computer system? Yes, this feature is called Samsung DEX. Simply link the phablet to a screen using HDMI cable and if you can want, you can even connect a keyboard via Bluetooth if you need to process documents and be more productive.

Samsung Galaxy Note9 Philippines

Samsung Galaxy Note9 will be released globally on August 24, 2018. This beastly device will be out in four attractive colors, namely, Ocean Blue, Metallic Copper, Midnight Black, and Lavender Purple.

Here in the Philippines, the 6GB + 128GB variant will don an official suggested retail price of PHP 55,990 while the 8GB + 512GB version will go for PHP 75,990, making it the most expensive non-Limited-Edition Galaxy smartphone to ever be released in our country.

          Waiting for a new deputy at the Vatican Secretariat of State      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Vatican City, Aug 9, 2018 / 04:00 pm (CNA).- Pope Francis’ trip to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families will be likely his first international trip not to include the “sostituto,” or deputy, of the Vatican Secretariat of State among the papal entourage.
 
Since the former “sostituto”, Giovanni Angelo Becciu, was created cardinal and promoted to lead the Congregation for the Cause of Saints in May, the position has been vacant.
 
The pope was expected to fill the position once Becciu’s mandate formally ended at the end of June, but he did not do that.
 
Now that the trip to Ireland is approaching, reports are spreading that Pope Francis might appoint Becciu’s successor by the end of the week.
 
The position of the “sostituto” is important for the functioning of the Secretariat of State and the entire Roman Cura.
 
According to Pastor bonus, the apostolic constitution that defines the tasks and competencies of Curial offices, the “sostituto” is at the helm of the first section of the Secretariat of State, the section on “general affairs.”
 
In practice, the “sostituto” works as a coordinator, and as a link between the pope and the secretary of state, becoming in many cases the person closest to the pope.
 
This is likely the reason Pope Francis wants to ponder carefully who will be the next “sostituto.”
 
On the other hand, the competencies of the “sostituto” might change some when Praedicate evangelium, the anticipated apostolic constitution updating the governance structures of the Vatican, is published and takes effect, and the pope might be waiting for the promulgation of that document before appointing a person to the role.
 
The Secretariat of State has already changed its shape under Pope Francis; the pope established in November a third section dedicated to the pastoral care of nuncios and other diplomatic personnel.
 
The newly established department took on the competencies of the Office for Pontifical Representatives, which was previously under the first section of the Secretariat. As the same time, the third section also absorbed some of the tasks generally entrusted to the first section, among them the presentation to the pope of three candidates for an nuncio position, and granting special permissions or delegations to nuncios.
 
The new “sostituto” will be called to work out a transition toward a new modus operandi of the Secretariat of State.
 
There has been a great deal of speculation about who will be picked for the job.
 
The “sostituto” is entrusted with general affairs, so it is not a diplomatic role, as is the Secretary for the Relations with States, who heads the Second Section. However, lately the “sostituto” have been from picked among the ranks of papal nuncios, as all of them have had experience and in its diplomatic work.
 
Since the position of the sostituto was created in 1831, there have been 20 deputies to the Secretary of State, and 17 of them were Italians. The tradition of an Italian “sostituto” was broken under John Paul II, who picked the Spanish Eduardo Martinez Somalo (1979 – 1988),  the Australian Edward Idris Cassidy (1988 – 1989) and the Argentinian Leonardo Sandri (2000 – 2007).
 
Since 1953, the “sostituto” has always had a past in the diplomatic service.
 
Will Pope Francis keep that tradition?
 
Vatican observers claim that the pope will likely choose an active nuncio for the position. Some have speculated that the pope might pick Archbishop Nicola Girasoli, nuncio to Peru, or Archbishop Giordano Caccia, nuncio to Philippines. Other reports say that the top candidate for the position might be Archbishop Bernardito Auza, Holy See Observer to the United Nations in New York.
 
It is also rumored that the pope might appoint Bishop Marcello Semeraro of Albano as “sostituto”- he is a long term friend of the pope, he is serving as secretary of the Council of Cardinals, and so he would be the well positioned to oversee Curia reform – including that of the Secretariat of State.
 
However, there is no consensus candidate within the Vatican corridors. Names circulate in conversations with Vatican officials, but they are considered to be, at best, possibilities.
 
Among the possibilities, there is a new entry who could represent a concrete option for the future: Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra, apostolic nuncio to Mozambique.
 
Archbishop Peña Parra fits many of Pope Francis’ priorities.
 
First, he is not Italian, and Francis seems keen to dispense with an overreliance on Italians.
 
Second, he comes from Venezuela: with his appointment, Pope Francis might further show his attention to the situation in that country, where every Church mediation in the messy political situation has thus far failed.
 
Third, he was apostolic nuncio to Pakistan from 2011 to 2015, a country to which Francis has paid particular attention, even appointing a cardinal from Pakistan at the last consistory.

Peña Parra therefore has a deep knowledge of two of the scenarios that Pope Francis deems important. In addition, his doctoral dissertation has become a reference point for study of human rights, an issue of importance to the pontiff.
 
At the moment, and for all of these reasons, the appointment of Archbishop Peña Parra is considered a strong possibility. However, Vatican sources have maintained that “the pope will make his decision alone,” and that “the pope can always surprise us.”
 
Much will be understood from the timing of the appointment: while it seems really likely that the pope will announce the appoint of the new “sostituto” by the end of the week, the decision can always be postponed to September, when vacation time is over and when the reform of the Curia should renewed in full swing.

SAN FRANCISCO (June 8, 2015) — Scientists from the California Academy of Sciences are celebrating World Ocean’s Day with a slew of brand new marine discoveries—more than 100 species that are likely new to science. The Philippines is home to the most biologically diverse waters on Earth, and remains the centerpiece of the Academy’s multi-year exploration of the Coral Triangle’s biological treasures. Over the course of this seven-week undertaking, funded by the National Science Foundation, scientists collected countless marine specimens, including rare and new species of colorful sea slugs, barnacles, and delicate heart urchins—among several others—to be studied in the coming months. Mysterious live animals from dimly-lit, deep-water reefs were also collected for a new exhibit at the Academy’s Steinhart Aquarium, expected to open in the summer of 2016.

Fifth Year Running!


Unlike previous years where the competition had only two distinct categories, “Group” and “Solo”, this year, since it’s 2018, SND breaks down its “Solo” category further to incorporate specialised categories such as Locking, Under-18, Krump, and Gurl Power. Gurl Power? Don’t play play. By doing this, for sure the fairness and objectivity when judging participants will be maintained. Dancing is not only limited to group and solo yea.

If you didn’t know yet, SND began as a platform for young local dancers to showcase their talents on stage while debunking the myth that street dancing was only limited to high school dropouts and delinquents. The competition has since grown beyond those boundaries to include international participation from countries such as Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, and the United States, while winners of SND have been elevated to become ambassadors of the competition as they continue to promote dancing as a fun way to remain physically active. Now you know.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In. We encourage non-white listeners to dial in with their codified concepts, new terms, observations, research findings, workplace problems or triumphs, and/or suggestions on how best to Replace White Supremacy With Justice ASAP. We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and - hopefully - promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS President Barack Obama's final days in office seem destined to be bursting with the same disrespect he's stomached for the past 8 years. The president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, threatened to call Obama's mother a "whore" before their proposed rendezvous was canceled. While visiting China for the G20 summit, President Obama took time to verbally support NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick's protest of the national anthem - several other athletes, including gay White women, have joined in the demonstration. This week marks a glorious moment in the history of American democracy, marking the 45-year anniversary of the Attica prison rebellion in upstate New York. The mostly non-white inmates were protesting many of the same issues with mass incarnation that remain malignant today. Darren Seals, one of the prominent protesters during the 2014 Ferguson crisis, was found shot to death in a burning automobile. No one has been arrested for the murder, which is remarkably similar to the December 2014 death of DeAndre Joshua. #RacismIsNotAPrivilege INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Russian Fleet Rushes To Arctic Over Fears US May Have Started War With Unknown Alien Species
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
At the same time the highly influential Veteran Intelligent Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) organization is warning President Trump that the “Deep State” intelligence on Iran he is receiving could be catastrophic, a new Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today suggests that the United States, if not the entire world, may have even bigger things to worry about—and is due to a believed to be shootdown by the US Air Force of a known and accepted “interstellar-interdimensional device” (most commonly referred as a UFO) within the Arctic Circle on 25 July, whose explosive force was registered at 2.1 kilotons—and has now seen this “devices” suspected “pair-mate”, on 4 Augustenter our Earth’s atmosphere in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Region-Yugra in West Siberia from where it began transversing the globe—until yesterday, 7 August,when it hovered in the skies over the Philippines, then raced towards the Arctic Circle where it plunged into the Greenland Sea with enough force to cause a 5.8 magnitude earthquake—and in response to President Putin, just hours ago, ordered the immediate deployment of the entire Russian Northern Fleet to Arctic waters.  [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

Massive “interstellar-interdimensinal” device (above) makes rare appearance over Philippines before racing to, and then plunging into, the Greenland Sea on 7 August 2018

According to this report, throughout the entirety of recorded human history, one of our planet’s most enduring mysteries has been the sudden and unexplained appearance of massive “interstellar-interdimensional” devices in our skies—and who, in the concealing of their presence, use unknown technology to envelope themselves in massive cloud formations—so gigantic, in fact, the late American physicist William Corliss Ph.D., in his 1983 scientific research paper titled “Tornadoes, Dark Days, Anomalous Precipitation, and Related Weather Phenomena”, documented them being able to cover entire regions, resulting in what he called “Dark Days”, as the Sunwould be completely obliterated from the sky.
One of the most written about “Dark Days” associated with these “interstellar-interdimensinal” devices in near historic times, this report details, occurred on 19 May 1780 throughout the entire region of the United Statesknown as New England—and where, shortly before Noon on that day, the sky turned yellowish, then went completely black.  


Shortly before Noon, on Friday, 20 July 2018, this report notes, another of these “Dark Days” occurred that covered the entire Eveno-Bytantaisky and Zhigansky districts of Russia’s coldest region Yakutia—and whose residents of refused to accept official explanations, with many of them stating it was, indeed, caused by what they called a massive UFO.
Though not having the technology to fully track these “interstellar-interdimensional” devices when they enter our Earth’s atmosphere, this report says, this particular “Dark Day” cause, five days later, on 25 July, was determined by the MoD to be operating within the Arctic Circle—with it then being observed that a missile had fired by the US Air Force from their Arctic Circle air base, and that was immediately followed with the registering of a 2.1 kiloton explosion—but that the Americans claimed was due to a crashed meteorite.   

US Air Force fighter pilots admit their being ordered to fire on UFO’s

Near simultaneously with this 2.1 kiloton explosion occurring in the Arctic, this report continues, and also on 25 July, the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) sent out an urgent astrogram (astronomer’s telegram) notifying the world that they had just detected a mysterious fast radio burst (FRB) they designated FRB 180725—and whose frequency of 580 MHz is nearly 200 megahertz lower than any other radio burst ever detected in history.
MoD analysts, this report concludes, have formed a hypothesis that this mysterious never seen before FRB was directed to the “interstellar-interdimensional” device fired on by the US Air Force—and that caused its “pair mate” device to come to its rescue as it may be lying disabled on the seafloor within the Arctic Circle—but whose full consequences of, should the worst have happened, and the Americans, indeed, fired upon an alien craft, are contained in the most highly classified section of this MoD report we’re not allowed to mention—other then to note its containing the full details of the most infamous “Dark Day” event occurring in recorded human history on 14 April 1561—and was when the inhabitants of the German city of Nuremberg witnessed a massive aerial battle involving hundreds of UFO’s in the skies above them—but whose cause of has never been known.

ANCIENT ET SPACESHIP, OR LOST TECHNOLOGY ON EARTH? 

WHEN RON PAUL GETS SERIOUSLY CENSORED, YOU KNOW THE FALSE FLAGS ARE ON THE DRAWING BOARD... BIGTIME... 

‘TRUTH IS TREASON IN EMPIRE OF LIES’: RON PAUL ON BIG TECH CENSORSHIP

“Challenging the status quo is what they can’t stand and it unnerves them, so they have to silence people.”

‘Truth is treason in empire of lies’: Ron Paul on Big Tech censorship


After the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute got suspended on Twitter, the former congressman from Texas told RT that social media crackdowns are part of a broader effort to silence dissent in the US.
While social media could be a “real delight” and very informative, the biggest role social networks are playing is “working with the government,” Ron Paul told RT on Tuesday. The government is indirectly regulating speech through companies like Twitter and Facebook, he added.
“You get accused of treasonous activity and treasonous speech because in an empire of lies the truth is treason,” Paul said. “Challenging the status quo is what they can’t stand and it unnerves them, so they have to silence people.”

Paul served in the House of Representatives for over 25 years before retiring in 2013 and setting up the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. The institute’s executive director, Daniel McAdams, found himself suspended from Twitter on Monday, apparently for retweeting a comment by radio show host Scott Horton.
Horton, who is also the editorial director of Antiwar.com, was suspended for criticizing journalist Jonathan M. Katz, after Katz complained to Twitter and got former former State Department employee and author Peter Van Buren banned from the platform.
“I’m just hoping that technology can stay ahead of it all and that we can have real alternatives to the dependency on Twitter and other companies that have been working hand in glove with the government,”Paul told RT.
“And if we, some of us, tell the truth about our government, they call us treasonous and say we’re speaking out of line and they’d like to punish us, and I think that’s part of what’s happening with social media,” he added.

As Globalists And Big Tech 'Identify, Vilify, Nullify And Destroy', Totalitarian Attempts To Ban The 1st Amendment Could Lead To Rivers Of Blood Flowing Through The Streets Of America

support_the_2nd.jpg

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

With 'big tech' and the globalists having launched an all-out war upon the 1st Amendment with Alex Jones and Infowars clearly the 'canary in the coal mine' of tyranny, Steve Quayle recently warned while linking to this story over at Intellihub about the fiasco: "when there is no 'alt news', murder and death will rule the day". 


With Senate Democrats now actually floating plans that would see the US government taking over the internet according to a leaked memo circulating among them that details a plethora of authoritarian proposals for regulating digital platforms such as Infowars and ANP, allegedly to "get tough on Russian bots and fake news", the fact that one Democratic senator recently said "the survival of our democracy depends on banning sites like InfoWars" tells us everything that we need to know going forward in 2018. (REMINDER TO CONGRESS: Your job approval rating SUCKS at 18%!)

As Quayle also mentioned while linking to this story over at Zero Hedge which reports that the censorship crackdown continues with twitter suspending several accounts of prominent libertarians, including the account of the Director of the Ron Paul Institute, "the first victim in any war is truth - 'propaganda is the execution squad' to all truth - the full-scale NWO pogrom begins!

Trump Taunts “Deep State” Daring Them To Assassinate Him As Historic US-Russia Alliance To Save World Gains Speed

An astonishing historically centered new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today says that 48-hours after a suspected to be CIA assassination plot failed to kill their nations leader in Wilkes-BarrePennsylvania, an appearing to be fearless President Donald Trump appeared openly again before a cheering crowd of his supporters in Lewis CenterOhio where he actually taunted his “Deep State” demonic anti-Christ globalist enemies daring them to try to assassinate him again—and that he did so by his unmistakably declaring his allegiance to the 25th President of the United States William McKinley—and afterwards Trump’s allegiance to McKinley spreading like wildfire across the globe spurring comments like “Did you pick it up? CONFIRMED!  The Trump US government will begin to fund itself by everything else EXCEPT INCOME TAXES.  That's the future economic plan and I'm so jealous I'm not an American!!!”—with the true significant origins of what Trump is doing being able to be traced back to “The Two Liberators”, Tsar Alexander II and President Abraham Lincoln.  [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

          India's invite to Trump not date specific, say govt sources      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The invitation to United States President Donald Trump to visit India is not date-specific, said government sources on Thursday.

Earlier it was reported that India extended an invitation to the US President to be the special guest on the Republic Day function next year.

On August 2, US Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in a press briefing in Washington stated that no decision had been taken on the matter yet. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and US Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis, however, would be visiting India next month to start a "dialogue process and a potential discussion for a presidential visit later in the year."

For the Republic Day function, the government invites a 'head of a country' to be the special guest.

Leaders from the 10 ASEAN nations -- Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos and Brunei - were chief guests at this year's parade function.

Former US President Barack Obama has also been part of the celebrations and visited India in 2015 as the chief guest of the 65th Republic Day event. (ANI)

PSYCHOTRONICS AND THE SECRET ORDER

*******

H.P. Albarelli, Jr.’s journey into the strange quirks and oddities he had discovered about the many people somehow associated with the assassination of President John Kennedy on November 22, 1963 is referred to as “high strangeness and synchronicity.” Michael Petro referred to it as “curious scraps of information.” Indeed, the numerous references to the many faces somehow connected to Kennedy (Lee Oswald, the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA], the Mob, the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI], and others) were often a bog of facts and comments, though tantalizing and dramatic, still seemed to be a jungle of confusing loose ends.

To purchase this book from AMAZON.COM simply click on its title: A Secret Order: Investigating the High Strangeness and Synchronicity in the JFK Assassination

PSYCHOTRONICS

The early part of the book was an attempt in tracing the dawn of psychiatry in the 1940s and 1950s leading to Intelligence Programs such as the CIA’s top-secret Projects MK/Naomi, MK/Ultra, and Project Artichoke.

“The CIA and the military, which were quickly drawn to the Program,” said Abarelli, “were becoming intrigued with the possibilities of creating what were then referred to as ‘aggressive soldiers’ and now are called ‘super soldiers.’”

Albarelli outlined a number of covert Intelligence Programs that could have been bedrock for “Manchurian Candidate” experiments of young children and the populace in general. Fort Detrick’s Special Operations (SO) Division is mentioned, the Office of Strategic Operations (OSS), agent George Hunter White, and the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN).

The author suspected that Oswald could likely have been an early victim of such programs while at a detention center called Youth House. Oswald could have possibly entered into a psychotronic relationship with psychiatrists and covert operations. Doctor Milton Kurian and Dr. Renatus Hartogs were psychiatrists that connected with Oswald at Youth House. Hartogs had previously worked at the Allen Memorial Institute, Montreal, Canada, where Doctor D. Ewen Cameron, in the mid-1950s under a covert MK/Ultra contract with the CIA, “conducted a series of horrific drug and sensory deprivation experiments on unwitting patients.”

MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE

LaurEnce HarvEy, in film,  foreshadows LEE Harvey a whole year before the JFK Assassination

*******

New York Post reporter Joseph Wershba questioned Dr. Hartogs on December 14, 1967 as to whether or not Oswald could have been a "Manchurian Candidate" (referring to a 1962 film on controlled soldiers).

Although his log seemed to dismiss such an allegation, Hartogs moved in circles of covert ML/Ultra and MK/Naomi and the “drug parties” of Dr. Harold A. Abramson.

Dr. Hartogs was an “aficionado” of magic and a covert contractor for the CIA. He was acquainted with magician John Mulholland who wrote a manual for CIA operatives containing instructions on how to “surreptitiously dose unwitting people with drugs, and how to perform other feats of slight-of-hand.” The Hartogs/Freeman book, The Two Assassins, told of Oswald’s comments to his mother Marguerite concerning his return from Russia: “Mother, not even Marina knows why I returned.”

Dr. Hartogs’s sexual scandal with his patient Julie Roy seemed to coincide with the sexual scandal of Canadian psychiatrist Dr. James Tyhurst. Tyhurst associated with neuropsychologist Dr. Donald O. Hebb and “both attended a seminal 1951 meeting,” said Abarelli, “which included participants from the CIA – to discuss early advancements in sensory deprivation and brainwashing.”

Investigator Dick Russell noted Hartogs’s interest in hypnotism (p. 53), as told by Dr. Milton V. Kline, authority on hypnotism and CIA cohort on Project Artichoke and MK/Ultra.

Kline also disclosed that Hartogs, along with Dr. Sidney Malitz (a psychiatrist at the New York State Psychiatric Institute [NYSPI]) and Dr. Paul Hoch (NYSPI research director) were involved in a number of covert contracts with the CIA and the U.S Army “to perform experiments with psychosurgery, electroconvulsive therapy, LSD, mescaline, and other drugs.” Hartogs worked with Malitz on some of these experiments. Dr. Malitz worked with Fort Detrick’s Special Operations Division. These experiments were with unwitting patients, “children and teenagers.”  Harold Blauer died because of such experiments. The CIA selected a group of 100 patients to join in these episodes (p.35). Lee Harvey Oswald was absent from school for at least 50 days while in New York City.

ALLEN DULLES

In the early 1950s, hypnotist George Estabrook wrote to CIA director Allen Dulles about the merits of hypnosis in covert operations.

“The CIA, U.S Army Fort Detrick, the Edgewood Arsenal, and the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) funded many of these contracts. Chief among these physicians were: Drs. Bernard Withens, Harold Esecover, and Harold A. Abramson.”

Dr. Lauretta Bender, a child neuropsychistrist at the New York City Bellevue Hospital, experimented extensively on children using electroshock treatment, “DE patterning” and “annihilation.”  Also involved was Dr. D. Ewen Cameron, who would eventually head the MK/Ultra subproject 68.

Dr. Leon Eisenberg spoke of Bender’s patients in these experiments as “…psychotic and perhaps worse off than before the treatment.”

H.P. Albarelli Jr. (photo on the left) is a writer and investigative journalist who lives in Vermont, Florida, and London (U.K.). He has written numerous feature articles about the 9-11 anthrax attacks; biological warfare; the American intelligence community; the death of Frank Olson; the Cuban revolution; and social and political affairs. Some of his work can be found at the World Net Daily, Cuba net, Counterpunch, and Crime Magazine websites, as well as in numerous magazines and newspapers.

Allbarelli ventured through several interesting episodes that the reader would best explore.  One such incident concerned Marguerite Oswald’s interview by Davis Eugene Boster, a life-long Foreign Service officer and covert CIA operative within the State Department. At one point, he was a staff assistant to Secretary of State John Foster Dulles.

The interview also included State Department employees Denman F. Stanfield and Edward J. Hickey. Part of the conversation went:

Marguerite:  “Now I know you are not going to answer me gentlemen, but I am under the impression that my son is an agent.”

Boster:   “Do you mean a Russian agent?”

Marguerite:   “No, working for our Government, a U.S agent.”

Marguerite also explained to the Warren Commission:

“And this is the way I think, because I happen to know all of the other things that you don’t know

- the life and everything … And I can almost back it up with things…

Yes, sir, I think my son was an agent. I certainly do.” (p. 64.)

 

Lee Oswald, from 1957 to1958, was stationed at Atsugi Naval Air Base, Japan, a huge underground 50-acre CIA-USAF Air Base, conducting air traffic control for U-2s flying over Chna an the Soviet Union, at a time when Operation Artichoke physicians and technicians conducted “enhanced interrogations” <torture> at the base.

Albarelli told of Oswald’s appearances at East Louisiana State Hospital ...  

He also went through episodes involving psychiatrists Dr. Robert G. Heath, Dr. Frank Silva and Dr. Alfred T. Butterworth and their contributions to psychotronics. Albarelli told about the further mysterious workings of Archcha Smith, David Ferrie, Ferrie’s Civilian Air Patrol (CAP), detective Jack S. Martin, CIA operative June Cobb, and a mysterious Rose Cherami who also had been a patient at the East Louisiana State Hospital in 1961.

“The Oswald sighting at the East Louisiana State Hospital seems cut and dry, but as with most events concerning Oswald,” said Albarelli, “the facts surrounding dwell in another realm of ambiguity and interconnectedness, an alternate universe clouded by high strangeness where everything has multidimensions of meaning and truth.”

Rose Cheramie foretold the assassinatio of JFK to doctors

at East Louisana State Hospital

ROSE CHERAMIE

Albarelli had an interesting chapter on Rose Cherami (Melba Christine Marcades), mystery woman, hooker, and drug addict, who was committed to the East Louisiana State Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi following an auto accident on Highway 190. The state hospital was infamous in the annuals of the Kennedy assassination.  Rose Cherami seemed to have been housed in several CIA-infiltrated facilities over the years.

Louisiana detective Lt. Francis Paul Fruge investigated Cheramie the day before the Kennedy assassination.  While in the hospital, Cherami told Dr. Don Bowers that Kennedy was going to be murdered in Dallas.

Cheramie had once worked for Jack Ruby in Dallas as a stripper and “drug courier.”  She said he had seen Oswald with Ruby. She also contended that Ruby was involved in the planned assassination.  Rose Cheramie died from another auto accident on September 4, 1965.

Dallas police were not interested in Cheramie’s testimony (p. 97), but Rose had quite a bit to say about drug trafficking in Texas.

Albarelli continued into her career that connected “to yet another unsolved murder – that of Houston police detective Martin A. Billnitzer – and therefor to the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, George Hunter White, and the CIA…”

The Texas drug-trafficking scenario involved corruption throughout the state, CIA “Executive Action” <5412 Committee) contractor Jean Pierre Lafittie, CIA officials in “hypnotism training,” MK/Ultra, the findings of New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, and the criminal involvement of Sergio Arcacha Smith and Emilio Santana.

“Billnitzer apparently committed suicide (shot himself twice) in his office the morning after being interviewed (by police investigators)…” (p. 115.) “…drugs put back on the street through the back door of the Houston Police Department but Billnitzer expanded his chief objective was to get these drugs off the streets permanently…” (p. 103.)

The only hope: let us go again to its roots. The best detail that ever took place to social media marketing was the hacking of the 2016 US election of Donal Trump by the Russians. Why? For the reason that it laid bare what quite a few in social media advertising and marketing has recognized for a long, prolonged time: that social media platforms are a joke, their valuations are based on imaginary end users, and their integrity lies somewhere involving Lucifer and that guy who eats people's faces in the movies. For advertising and marketing consultants such as myself, recommending current social platforms this sort of as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram has been ever more tough, mainly because -pretty frankly- many of us do not have confidence in the metrics. And why ought to we? Facebook doesn't. This is from Facebook's 2017 SEC submitting (emphasis mine): The quantities for our critical metrics, which include our every day active users (DAUs), monthly lively people (MAUs), and typical earnings for each consumer (ARPU), are calculated employing inner business facts based mostly on the activity of user accounts. Whilst these numbers are primarily based on what we believe to be affordable estimates of our consumer base for the applicable period of measurement, there are inherent worries in measuring usage of our products across substantial on the web and mobile populations all around the planet. The most significant info administration business in the globe states it doesn't actually know if its quantities are exact. Estimates? What advertising and marketing skilled desires approximated success soon after the actuality? It gets worse. Emphasis mine: In the fourth quarter of 2017, we estimate that duplicate accounts may well have represented roughly ten% of our around the world MAUs. We believe the percentage of replicate accounts is meaningfully increased in acquiring marketplaces this kind of as India, Indonesia, and the Philippines, as as opposed to additional formulated markets. In the fourth quarter of 2017, we estimate that fake accounts may well have represented roughly three-4% of our around the globe MAUs. Permit that sink in. Fb is admitting that "about" ten% of its monthly energetic people are phony. Interestingly, they really don't mention what proportion of their daily energetic consumers are phony. And which is the dilemma with social media. You will not know what is true and what is bogus anymore. Social media has not been serious for a even though. As marketers and advertisers, we pleasure ourselves on accuracy. In the olden periods of advertising and advertising, we obsessed in excess of ranking numbers of television set demonstrates, readership for print promotions, and shipping achievements rates for direct mail. In all situations, the platforms of the day were closely audited. You realized, with good certainty, was the audiences were for any individual medium or channel because there was generally a issue of review someplace for the quantities. Traditional media this sort of as radio, Television, and print experienced been all over extensive enough that there have been 1000's of scenario scientific tests a person could examine the results or failures of personal campaigns. Since these mediums were element of the community file, it was quick to perform backward to see what combine of media and funds labored and what failed to. As an industry, we could speedily establish benchmarks for results - not just based mostly on our particular ordeals- but in the collective ordeals of incredibly very clear tactics laid bare for absolutely everyone to dissect. Nicely, that all went out the window with social media. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram's numbers had been generally a joke. In times of yore, company valuation was primarily based on revenues, assets, and human capital, and general performance. That all transformed when an individual came up with the thought of "every day lively consumers." The race to attain end users grew to become the driving force for social media platforms in a way that we have under no circumstances witnessed prior to. Now, the obsession with consumer progress opened the doorway to advertising and advertising fraud on a scale that just was not achievable beforehand. Let us get a thing apparent: any platform that allows for individuals to generate hundreds of faux profiles so others can acquire likes, followers, retweets, or shares is harmful to advertisers and models alike. Now, I realize that the term "lets" is carrying out a large amount of do the job in that sentence, so permit me broaden a little bit what I signify. I do not imagine I'll get quite a few arguments when I say that -no matter of what I think of them- the most effective social media platforms on the earth are also some of the most sophisticated technological enterprises on the world. They have -arguably- some of the best AI all-around, as their complete company products revolve all around currently being in a position to crunch quantities, info, and obscure items of facts millions of moments a 2nd. They are also significant corporations, with an military of attorneys and IP bulldogs waiting to safeguard their manufacturer towards any hostile exterior forces. So clarify to me, how is it, that even just after all we have witnessed in the news people can continue to acquire Fb likes, or Twitter followers, or Instagram followers? The cause: it was generally a fraud. And we received conned along with everybody else. If your company is valued on your variety of customers and the action of those people on your system, what do you care if they are phony or not? If you did, you'd retain the services of an armada of auditors to make sure the integrity of your userbase. I never feel they ever did and will in no way do this. Social platforms deploy their honey lure. At first, social platforms this sort of as Fb and Twitter lured manufacturers and providers onto their platforms with claims of cost-free marketing and advertising and promotion. The capacity to immediately increase a fanbase and follower foundation, with out the will need of using the services of internet marketing shmucks like me. Why squander time on choosing a expert when you can do it all you for practically nothing? At to start with, I was a supporter of this. I believed that marketing and marketing was typically one thing that only bigger companies could afford to pay for, and that compact business advertising and marketing was being still left powering. Social media internet marketing permitted for even a mom and pop shop to contend online. So numerous enterprises invested plenty of hours and 1000's of bucks in human assets to expand their followers on the internet. Obtaining lured them into their honey lure, social media providers then held followers and fans hostages. You experienced to shell out to have obtain to the userbase that you crafted up and cultivated. Quickly the numbers did not make any perception. You experienced to spend to advertise or strengthen posts when earlier it was no cost. The result was disastrous for lots of businesses. The ROI's did not insert up, but with so several of their customers on these platforms, they had small alternative but to proceed to consider and get what ever value they could for them. In addition, the shift to this kind of promotions opened up the Pandora's box to additional abuses. The generate for income seemingly caused social platforms to carry on to look the other way on bogus profiles and social media bots mainly because they drove ad profits. Personalized details was harvested and manipulated in techniques that users could not fathom and did not concur to. Largely, it did some thing to marketing that I'm not positive we can get better. For several electronic advertising and marketing firms and advertising and marketing agencies, it forced us to down the Kool-assist with every person else. People today that should really have recognized better doubled down on social media advertising and marketing for our clients when we realized -for most of them- it was pointless.

Pentagon to Spend Nearly $5M on Marine Corps Mission in the Philippines

Pentagon to Spend Nearly $5M on Marine Corps Mission in the Philippines by Todd South – Military Times

Despite a siege last year that retook a major city in the Philippines and killed an estimated 1,000 ISIS fighters, reducing their ranks to about 200 in the area, Pentagon spending on the military mission there has nearly tripled, according to a recent report.

And most of that money is being spent on running a fleet of drones to monitor terrorist activities while supporting ground patrols to clear out ongoing contested areas of the country.

Nearly $5 million is to fund the Marine Corps to “advise, plan and execute missions in support of Philippine counterterror operations,” according to the report.

The Lead Inspector General Report for Operation Inherent Resolve and Operation Pacific Eagle-Philippines covers April to June and details measures, reporting and progress of both operations aimed at defeating the Islamic State.

The Philippines operation uses mostly U.S. Special Operations Forces to train, advise and assist, especially with ISR assets, as the Philippine military continues to pursue remaining ISIS fighters after having cleared them from the provincial capital city of Marawi, which was seized by ISIS in September and held five months last year…

          Comment on Improvised Weapons You Must Look Out For When SHTF by Anthony      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hey Survivopedia, this is a very interesting topic (I'm pretty sure for LE officers as well) and while we're on it, why don't you interview ex-convicts or war veterans from other countries (Philippines, Vietnam, Japan, etc) that were known to use improvised weapons and ask them on how to make more weapons. I've read Ragnar Benson's Mantrapping and thought to myself that there's probably more ideas out there. Cheers

In the Philippines, most of the bladed weapons are actually dual purpose, being used for agricultural and combat purposes. In the examples shown above, The Golok, Bolo and Barong are all Filipino blades that are used for fighting and tending to your crops. The only bladed weapons the Philippines has that are exclusively for combat are the Kris (The wavy-bladed one) and the Kampilan (Philippine two-handed longsword). I would also recommend searching for a Ginunting (looks like a broken scissor) and is used by the Marine Corps.

Người nhái Đài Loan tập luyện ban đêm tại Cao Hùng, 23/07/2018.
(Asia Times) – Đài Loan tăng ngân sách sản xuất tàu ngầm để chống Trung Quốc

Nữ tổng thống Đài Loan Thái Anh Văn hôm qua 08/08/2018 hứa sẽ chi thêm 2,4 tỉ đô la, tương đương hơn 1/5 ngân sách quốc phòng trong năm tới, để tự sản xuất vũ khí. Đặc biệt là việc chế tạo và nâng cấp tàu ngầm tấn công để tăng cường năng lực Hải quân, đối phó với nguy cơ bị Trung Quốc xâm lược.

Hồi tháng Tư, Washington đã cho phép xuất khẩu các công nghệ cao liên quan đến tàu ngầm cho Đài Loan, bất chấp sự phản đối của Bắc Kinh.

(Inquirer)Chủ tịch Trung Quốc Tập Cận Bình sẽ thăm Philippines vào cuối năm

Phủ Tổng thống Philippines hôm nay 09/08/2018 xác nhận chủ tịch Trung Quốc Tập Cận Bình sẽ thăm Manila trước cuối năm 2018.

Đây sẽ là chuyến công du Philippines đầu tiên của ông Tập trong nhiệm kỳ của tổng thống Rodrigo Duterte, sau khi dự hội nghị APEC tại Papua New Guinea.

(Reuters)Nguyên tổng thống Chilê được đề nghị chức cao ủy Nhân quyền Liên Hiệp Quốc

Tổng thư ký Liên Hiệp Quốc Antonio Guterres hôm qua 08/08/2018 đã chọn lựa cựu tổng thống Chilê, bà Michelle Bachelet vào chức vụ cao ủy Nhân quyền Liên Hiệp Quốc. Đại hội đồng Liên Hiệp Quốc họp lại ngày mai sẽ có quyết định cuối cùng.

Người đương chức, ông Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein không muốn tái ứng cử vì không được sự ủng hộ của các cường quốc Hoa Kỳ, Trung Quốc và Nga. Ông Zeid đã không ngần ngại đả kích các biện pháp của tổng thống Mỹ Donald Trump.


          Ảnh đời thường của hot girl 9x – người tình bốc lửa của ông trùm đường dây đánh bạc 2000 tỷ      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Trần Thị Hồng Trinh là người tình cũng là người trợ giúp quản lý hệ thống đánh bạc trực tuyến 2000 tỷ đồng vừa bị triệt xóa.

Liên quan đến vụ triệt phá đường dây đánh bạc trực tuyến quy mô 2000 tỷ đồng mang tên M88 của “ông trùm” Nguyễn Minh Đạt, lực lượng chức năng đã làm rõ và bắt giữ các đối tượng có liên quan. Trong số đó, không thể không kể đến cô gái duy nhất có vai trò quan trọng trong hoạt động cờ bạc khủng này.

Người đàn bà nắm quyền điều khiển đường dây đánh bạc đứng sau “trùm” Nguyễn Minh Đạt là Trần Thị Hồng Trinh (SN 1991, ngụ huyện Củ Chi). Trinh là người tình cũng là người giúp sức tích cực cho Đạt trong việc xây dựng và điều hành hệ thống cờ bạc qua mạng.



Trinh và đàn em bị bắt giữ điều tra vụ án đường dây đánh bạc quy mô 2000 tỷ đồng.

Vốn là một cô gái xinh xắn nhưng có máu cờ bạc trong người, Trinh và Đạt cũng quen nhau trong một lần ra nước ngoài đánh bạc. Kể từ đó, Trinh và người tình này luôn dính lấy nhau, thành lập đường dây cờ bạc trực tuyến xuyên quốc gia đặt trụ sở tại Philippines. Trinh còn rủ rê em ruột của mình và một số anh em họ hàng tham gia phụ giúp Đạt, với nhiều nhiệm vụ khác nhau.

Khi đã trở thành ông trùm thực sự và có nhiều đàn em tin tưởng phụ giúp, Đạt thu xếp cho người tình hot girl của mình không tham gia điều hành nhiều nữa. Thay vào đó, Đạt mở cơ sở spa và xây dựng hệ thống bán hàng mỹ phẩm, nước hoa… qua mạng xã hội để Trinh làm chủ.


Trinh được đánh giá là người tình xinh như hot girl cũng là cánh tay phải đắc lực giúp Đạt điều hành đường dây cờ bạc.

Đây cũng được coi là hành động “ông trùm” đường dây đánh bạc chiều chuộng người tình của mình, đồng thời cũng là tạo bình phong, nhắm kín kẽ trong việc vận hành hệ thống cờ bạc cực lớn tại Việt Nam. Ông trùm cùng người tình Hồng Trinh tạo vỏ bọc cực kì hoàn hảo nhiều người lầm tưởng cả 2 là những người kinh doanh hay doanh nhân thành công…



Trinh được người tình tạo vỏ bọc hoàn hảo là bà chủ của chuỗi Spa làm đẹp có tiếng ở Sài thành.

Như đã thông tin, trinh sát của Cục Cảnh sát phòng chống tội phạm sử dụng công nghệ cao – Bộ Công an cùng Cục Cảnh sát hình sự và Công an TP.HCM, Hà Nội, Đồng Nai sau hơn một năm điều tra, mùa World Cup vừa qua do đường dây đánh bạc của Đạt hoạt động mạnh mẽ hơn, đã quyết định đánh sập trang này. Số tiền giao dịch thông qua các tài khoản lên tới khoảng 2.000 tỷ đồng. Đối tượng Nguyễn Minh Đạt và người tình Trần Thị Hồng Trinh đều bị lực lượng chức năng bắt giữ cùng đàn em.

          Wedding Traditions Around The World      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

You can’t deny that the British love a good wedding and all the pomp and ceremony that goes along with it, from the first dance to the Groom carrying his new Bride over the threshold. However, we’re certainly not the only country to have wedding customs, they may differ hugely from one country to the next but they all have one thing in common - guaranteeing the Bride & Groom their ‘happy ever after’.

Many wedding day traditions were originally based on symbolism and superstition and were meant to help the new couple get off to the best possible start in married life, for example, in the Philippines it is customary for the happy couple to release a pair of white Doves to represent the start of their harmonious life together.

Confetti

Many Western cultures now throw confetti over the Bride and Groom as they leave the church and while this makes for a beautiful photo it actually stems from friends and family throwing rice or seeds at the couple to encourage fertility.

In the UK the throwing of the bouquet is well-known tradition and there is a similar custom in Greece where the bridesmaids write their name on the sole of the Bride’s shoe and the last name to remain after a long night of dancing will be the next lucky lady to wed!

Brides Shoes

We all know how expensive a wedding can be and the Polish have come up with a creative way to get the guests to help out with the cost a little. Instead of the first dance we all know and love, the Bride will wear a specially made apron and guests will pay for a dance with her by pinning money on her dress. Every little helps!

Marriage may be a universal custom  - when it comes to love there are no borders, however when it comes to Wedding Traditions, there are some which you may be glad you don’t have to participate in.

One such tradition is the Blackening of the Bride which is making a comeback all over Scotland and involves the Bride and Groom being captured by friends and covered in soot, flour, treacle and feathers. This is supposedly to signify that any couple who can cope with being covered in gunk can face any challenge life may throw at them in the future.

While we like to think of a Wedding Day as the happiest of the Bride & Grooms life, in the Congo it’s serious business! So serious that the wedding party are not allowed to even crack a smile during the ceremony.

Even though Cupid has already struck the happy couple, in parts of China it is tradition for the Groom to shoot his new wife with 3 arrows, with the heads removed thankfully! He will then break the arrows in half, symbolising their eternal love.

Throwing Bouquet

There’s certainly plenty of options to choose from when planning your big day, whether you go with age-old customs or start your very own family traditions.

Bí mật nguồn tiền phi pháp của chính quyền Trung Quốc

Trung Quốc tiêu pha những khoản tiền khổng lồ để thực hiện tham vọng thâu tóm Biển Đông và mua chuộc các nước quay lưng lại với Đài Loan (Bắc Kinh coi là một tỉnh ly khai). Vậy những khoản tiền này đến từ đâu?

Bí mật nguồn tiền phi pháp của chính quyền Trung Quốc. (Ảnh minh họa: Internet)
Trung Quốc kiếm được hàng tỷ USD mỗi năm từ hoạt động giết hại công dân để lấy nội tạng cho ngành công nghiệp ghép tạng.
Nạn nhân chủ yếu là các học viên Pháp Luân Công, môn khí công được tự do tập luyện ở nhiều nước nhưng bị đàn áp thô bạo ở Trung Quốc từ năm 1999 đến nay.
Bàn tay nhuốm máu của chính quyền Trung Quốc đã kích thích loại hình tội phạm buôn người lấy nội tạng đang trở nên trầm trọng ở các nước Đông Nam Á.
Chuyên gia cảnh báo nếu tội ác này bị ngó lơ, những nước khác thiếu pháp quyền và không tôn trọng nhân quyền sẽ đi đến kết cục tương tự.
Các nhà điều tra phát hiện một nguồn tiền trị giá hàng tỷ USD mỗi năm được thu về từ một hoạt động phi pháp mà chính quyền Trung Quốc thực hiện từ nhiều năm qua.
Manh mối về hoạt động này bắt đầu xuất hiện khi thế giới chứng kiến sự bùng nổ của ngành cấy ghép nội tạng ở Trung Quốc: Chỉ vài năm kể từ sau 1999, Trung Quốc bỗng trở thành quốc gia có số ca cấy ghép lớn thứ 2 toàn cầu.

Điều bất thường là tỷ lệ hiến tạng ở nước này thuộc hàng thấp nhất thế giới: Cứ một triệu người mới có 2,98 người hiến tạng, Financial Times cho biết thông tin từ một quan chức Trung Quốc vào tháng 3/2017.
Vậy số nội tạng này đến từ đâu? Các nhà điều tra quốc tế đã phát hiện những căn cứ cho thấy nguồn cung cấp tạng vô tận và sẵn có tại Trung Quốc đến từ những người dân bị chính quyền cưỡng bức mổ lấy nội tạng.
Nội tạng nhà nước
Nó được điều hành bởi nhà nước [Trung Quốc]. Đó là giết người theo lệnh của nhà nước”, nhà báo Ethan Gutmann cho biết trong bộ phim tài liệu Killed for Organs: China’s Secret State Transplant Business (tạm dịch: Giết người cướp nội tạng: Quốc doanh bí mật của nhà nước Trung Quốc).
Ông Gutmann đã tiến hành cuộc điều tra độc lập về nạn mổ cướp nội tạng ở Trung Quốc từ năm 2008 đến nay và được đề cử giải Nobel Hòa bình năm 2017 cho cống hiến này.
Cùng chung nhận định là ông David Kilgour, Nguyên Quốc vụ khanh Canada phụ trách khu vực Châu Á – Thái Bình Dương và luật sư nhân quyền David Matas. Hai ông cũng được đề cử giải Nobel Hòa bình năm 2010 cho nỗ lực phơi bày hoạt động thu hoạch nội tạng cưỡng bức của chính quyền Trung Quốc.

Ông Kilgour cho biết trong cuộc phỏng vấn với Liên minh Quốc tế chống Mổ cướp nội tạng ở Trung Quốc: “Đúng vậy, ‘Nội tạng Nhà nước’ là từ chính xác để mô tả hoạt động mổ cướp nội tạng ở Trung Quốc”. Ông Kilgour đề cập đến từ “nội tạng nhà nước”, đây cũng là tựa đề của cuốn sách State Organs: Transplant Abuse in China (tạm dịch: Nội tạng Nhà nước: Hoạt động lạm dụng cấy ghép ở Trung Quốc), mà ông nghiên cứu cùng luật sư nhân quyền David Matas và bác sỹ Torsten Trey, giám đốc điều hành của Hiệp hội các bác sỹ chống mổ cướp nội tạng (DAFOH).
Nó được thực hiện bởi nhà nước, cho nhà nước, vì lợi ích của những người tham gia”, ông Kilgour nói. Ông cho biết “mục tiêu thứ yếu, không phải mục tiêu chủ yếu” là loại bỏ những người tập Pháp Luân Công, môn khí công theo nguyên lý Chân – Thiện – Nhẫn được tự do tập luyện trên thế giới nhưng bị đàn áp đẫm máu ở Trung Quốc.

Là môn khí công cổ xưa được đơn truyền qua nhiều thế hệ, Pháp Luân Công lần đầu tiên được giới thiệu rộng rãi ra công chúng vào năm 1992 và nhanh chóng thu hút khoảng 70-100 triệu người tập ở Trung Quốc tính đến năm 1999,.
Chứng kiến sự ưa chuộng của người dân đối với môn khí công có số người tập vượt quá số lượng đảng viên đương thời (khoảng 50-60 triệu người), Tổng bí thư kiêm Chủ tịch nước Giang Trạch Dân lo sợ hình ảnh cá nhân sẽ bị lu mờ và ra lệnh đàn áp môn tập này.
Ông Kilgour nhận định: “Các giá trị Chân – Thiện – Nhẫn của Pháp Luân Công không tương đồng với các giá trị của Đảng Cộng sản Trung Quốc, nên Giang Trạch Dân, Chủ tịch nước kiêm Tổng bí thư, đã vu khống Pháp Luân Công là tà đạo và phát động một cuộc đàn áp tàn bạo đối với các học viên từ giữa năm 1999 đến nay”.
Trái ngược với những lời tuyên truyền từ Trung Quốc, nhiều nhà lãnh đạo và người dân thế giới ghi nhận Pháp Luân Công là môn khí công ôn hòa đem lại nhiều lợi ích về sức khỏe và tinh thần.

Nhà báo Ethan Gutmann bình luận: “Các giá trị của Pháp Luân Công rất thiết thực và rất hấp dẫn. Họ thật sự đại diện cho một Trung Quốc bị đàn áp hoàn toàn suốt nhiều năm – một xã hội Trung Quốc mà hầu hết người phương Tây chưa từng được thấy”.
Bà Elizabeth May, Nghị sỹ, Lãnh đạo Đảng Xanh, Canada: “Chúng tôi ghi nhận Pháp Luân Đại Pháp luôn tuân theo Chân – Thiện – Nhẫn và là môn khí công ôn hòa tu dưỡng tinh thần. Không thể tưởng tượng nổi môn tập này lại bị cấm ở nước Cộng hòa Nhân dân Trung Hoa”.

Sau khi ông Giang phát động cuộc đàn áp từ tháng 7/1999, hàng triệu học viên Pháp Luân Công trở thành đối tượng của các cuộc bắt bớ quy mô lớn, cưỡng bức lao động và tra tấn diễn ra trên khắp Trung Quốc.
Cũng từ sau năm 1999, số ca ghép tạng ở Trung Quốc bắt đầu tăng đột biến, các trung tâm cấy ghép nở rộ với những lời quảng cáo cấy ghép các nội tạng quan trọng chỉ trong vòng vài tuần.
Cuộc diệt chủng do các bác sỹ thực thi
Luật sư nhân quyền David Matas nói về nguồn nội tạng mà chính quyền Trung Quốc nắm giữ: “Họ có nguồn tạng vô tận, cung ứng theo nhu cầu, hạn chế duy nhất là công suất. Nên bạn có thể thấy sau năm 2001 là sự bùng nổ của những công trình lớn, thêm giường bệnh mới, những khu bệnh xá mở rộng, những bệnh viện mới chuyên phục vụ hoạt động cấy ghép. Khi hệ thống này hoạt động đúng công suất, số ca ghép tạng cũng tăng lên hàng năm”.
Năm 2006, sau khi một phụ nữ Trung Quốc tị nạn ở Mỹ tiết lộ bệnh viện nơi cô từng làm việc thu hoạch nội tạng từ các học viên Pháp Luân Công, ông Matas và ông Kilgour đã bắt đầu điều tra về cáo buộc này. Báo cáo Kilgour-Matas 2006/2007 và các báo cáo sau đó của hai ông đều khẳng định: Cáo buộc này là đúng sự thật – các học viên Pháp Luân Công Trung Quốc đang bị giết hại trên quy mô lớn để lấy nội tạng cho ngành cấy ghép. Các nhà điều tra cũng khẳng định một số ít các nạn nhân là những người Duy Ngô Nhĩ, người Tây Tạng và những người theo đạo Cơ Đốc tại gia.
Ông Matas cho biết: “Vì tôi từng nghiên cứu về nạn diệt chủng người Do Thái nên tôi thấy ở góc độ nào đó, điều chúng ta đang chứng kiến chính là loại tội ác trước kia nay tái diễn dưới một hình thức khác. Đó là sự tha hóa vô độ về nhân tính. Không còn giới hạn nào cho tội ác này mà người ta có thể trượt xuống”.
Ông Kilgour nói với Liên minh Quốc tế chống mổ cướp nội tạng ở Trung Quốc: “Người Trung Quốc dù đi đâu cũng phải đối mặt với chất vấn này: Các ông đang giết hại công dân của chính mình, mà họ chỉ luyện các bài tập nhẹ nhàng, họ không bạo lực, không làm chính trị, họ tin tưởng vào Chân – Thiện – Nhẫn, đó là nguyên tắc sống của các học viên Pháp Luân Công. Các ông giết những người này để lấy nội tạng. Hành vi đó thật quá tàn bạo! Đó có phải là một chính quyền văn minh không? Hay các ông còn tệ hơn cả Hitler?”
Nhà báo Gutmann bình luận: “Đây là một hình thức diệt chủng mới, nó sử dụng những người được trọng vọng nhất trong xã hội để thực thi. Vì thế, chúng ta không thể tiếp tục né tránh thực trạng này”.

Việc chính quyền Trung Quốc thu hoạch nội tạng của các học viên Pháp Luân Công được nhìn nhận là một hình thức diệt chủng kiểu mới, theo nhà báo điều tra Ethan Gutmann.

Vậy vì sao các bác sỹ Trung Quốc lại có thể tham gia tội ác giết người này để lấy nội tạng cấy ghép cho người khác?
Bác sỹ Harold King từ Hiệp hội các bác sỹ chống mổ cướp nội tạng (DAFOH) cho biết: “Cách cai trị của chính quyền Trung Quốc khiến bạn cảm thấy rõ rằng nếu bạn không đồng tình với họ, thì bạn sẽ sớm bị trừng phạt. Các bác sỹ cũng vậy, họ phải tuân lệnh. Họ làm việc trong các bệnh viện lớn, có cả các bệnh viện quân y. Họ phải tuân lệnh. Nếu họ không tuân lệnh, họ có thể sẽ bị giết, bị cầm tù, sau đó gia đình cũng có thể bị liên lụy. Nỗi sợ mà chính quyền tạo ra không chỉ có tác dụng đối với quần chúng thông thường, mà còn có tác dụng đối với các bác sỹ”.
Mối đe dọa chung của nhân loại
Bàn tay nhuốm máu của chính quyền Trung Quốc trong hoạt động kiếm tiền vô đạo đức này đã kích thích cho thị trường chợ đen nở rộ. Thực tế là hoạt động tội phạm buôn người lấy nội tạng đã trở nên trầm trọng cùng khoảng thời gian với sự bùng nổ của các trung tâm cấy ghép ở Trung Quốc.
Reuters cho biết, vào tháng 6/2007, tổ chức Di cư Quốc tế (IOM) đã bày tỏ mối quan ngại về tình trạng gia tăng nạn buôn người lấy nội tạng ở châu Á.
Khi đó, ông Bruce Reed, đại diện khu vực của IOM cho biết, nạn buôn người để lấy nội tạng ngày càng gia tăng ở Trung Quốc và nhiều nước Đông Nam Á, như Việt Nam, Campuchia, Indonesia, Lào, Myanmar và Philippines.
Ông Reed cho biết nhiều trường hợp buôn người ở châu Á “kết thúc trong các tình huống [các nạn nhân] buộc phải ăn xin, phạm pháp, làm con nuôi, kết hôn giả, hoặc gần đây nhất, là trở thành nạn nhân của hoạt động buôn bán nội tạng con người đang phát triển mạnh”.
Là nước sát biên giới với Trung Quốc và thường xuyên gặp vấn nạn bắt cóc, buôn người sang Trung Quốc, mối đe dọa từ Trung Quốc là điều không thể làm ngơ.
Công an huyện Si Ma Cai (Lào Cai) từng ra cảnh báo về tình trạng bắt cóc lấy nội tạng ở khu vực biên giới với Trung Quốc trong một văn bản vào tháng 7/2016. Văn bản viết: “Ngày 27/7/2016, Công an huyện Si Ma Cai nhận được công văn số 1177/CAT-PV11 Công an tỉnh Lào Cai thông báo: Tại địa bàn giáp ranh Việt Nam – Trung Quốc, tỉnh Hà Giang trong 6 tháng đầu năm đã xảy ra 16 vụ/ 16 nạn nhân bị bắt cóc, mổ lấy nội tạng (gan, thận, tim, mắt…)”.
Công an Lào Cai sau đó đã thu hồi văn bản này với lý do “sơ suất trong khâu soạn thảo”, theo báo Đất Việt. Dù thực hư về văn bản này ra sao, mối đe dọa từ Trung Quốc về mổ cướp nội tạng là có thật.
Tờ New Yorker bình luận ngày 10/1/2014: “Sự tồn tại của hoạt động buôn bán nội tạng ngầm” ở Trung Quốc không phải là điều gây bất ngờ. “Bởi vì các quy định và quyết định được đưa ra bởi giới quyền lực, vì lợi ích của giới quyền lực, và những công dân bình thường ít có động lực để tôn trọng luật pháp”.
Không có mấy hi vọng về việc chính quyền Trung Quốc sẽ dập tắt hoạt động buôn bán nội tạng ở chợ đen, trong khi chính các bệnh viện mà nhà nước quản lý lại đang thu hoạch nội tạng từ những người vô tội. Vì vây, vấn nạn mổ cướp nội tạng của chính quyền Trung Quốc không phải là vấn đề của các học viên Pháp Luân Công, hay của người Duy Ngô Nhĩ, người Tây Tạng.
Đây không phải là vấn đề riêng của người Trung Quốc ở Trung Quốc, mà là vấn đề toàn cầu. Đây là vấn đề gây quan ngại tới người dân thuộc mọi sắc tộc, mọi quốc gia”, ông John Nania, Tổng biên tập, America Daily Media, Inc., Hoa Kỳ nhận xét.
Ông Kilgour cảnh báo: “Điều nguy hiểm là chúng ta cùng trượt dốc và các nước khác không có pháp quyền hay không tôn trọng nhân quyền, sẽ đi đến kết cục tương tự”.

Thế giới tự do cần lên tiếng
Cùng với các nhà điều tra như ông Kilgour, luật sư Matas và nhà báo Gutmann, nhiều nhà lãnh đạo trên thế giới đã lên tiếng yêu cầu Trung Quốc chấm dứt hoạt động mổ cướp nội tạng do chính quyền bảo trợ.
Trong cuộc phỏng vấn với đài truyền hình NTD nhân kỷ niệm ngày Pháp Luân Đại Pháp thế giới 2017, nghị sỹ Hoa Kỳ Chris Smith đề xuất: “Các nhà lãnh đạo của thế giới tự do, trong đó có Tổng thống Trump, cần nêu ra vấn đề này với [Chủ tịch Trung Quốc] Tập Cận Bình, nêu ra một cách trực tiếp, thẳng thắn, và tin tưởng chắc chắn rằng mọi việc sẽ thay đổi theo chiều hướng tốt, nếu dùng đến các biện pháp đã được đề cập”.

Ông David Kilgour nhận định: “Giang Trạch Dân phải bị đưa ra tòa án hình sự quốc tế vì ông ta là người đã phát động cuộc đàn áp. Tôi hy vọng Chủ tịch Trung Quốc [Tập Cận Bình] sẽ ứng xử khác, khác xa so với Giang Trạch Dân. Một cách sáng suốt để làm điều đó là chấm dứt tội ác phản nhân loại này ngay lập tức”.

Ông Niclas Malmberg, Nghị sỹ Thụy Điển, chỉ ra một thực tế rằng: “Rất ít người biết đến thực trạng này, mà những người đã nghe nói cũng không dám tin. Nó quá khủng khiếp, người ta không tưởng tượng nổi đó là sự thực”.
Ông cho biết phản ứng đầu tiên của ông là rất sốc: “Lúc đầu tôi nghĩ: ‘Chuyện này không thể có thật. Nó quá kinh khủng, quá tồi tệ. Con người không thể xấu xa đến thếNhưng khi biết đến các dữ kiện, số người bị giết hại, bạn sẽ thấy đây là sự thật. Chính quyền Trung Quốc xấu xa đến thế này. Khi bạn nhận ra đây là sự thật, bạn phải làm gì đó cho việc này”.
Ông đề xuất: “Vậy chúng ta cần làm gì? Hãy phơi bày thực tế này. Hãy nói về những gì đang xảy ra ở Trung Quốc để nhiều người hơn nữa nhận thức được tình trạng này.”

Giáo sư Paul Macneill, Trung tâm Đạo đức Y tế, Đại học Sydney (Australia), kêu gọi: “Điều tôi gợi ý các bạn là hãy ký tên vào đơn thỉnh nguyện [chấm dứt mổ cướp nội tạng ở Trung Quốc]. Hoặc các bạn có thể ký tên trên trang web của Liên minh Quốc tế Chống mổ cướp nội tạng ở Trung Quốc”.
Tôi tin là các bạn cũng như tôi, muốn người khác biết rằng điều này đang diễn ra, vì điều quan trọng là chúng ta cần tạo áp lực với Trung Quốc để chấm dứt hoạt động tàn bạo này”.

Chủ tịch Trung Quốc Tập Cận Bình đã có một số tín hiệu cho thấy ông không muốn tiếp tục cuộc đàn áp Pháp Luân Công mà ông Giang để lại, như đóng cửa hệ thống trại lao động cưỡng bức – vốn là một trong những nơi chủ yếu để giam giữ và bức hại các học viên Pháp Luân Công, thanh trừng một loạt các quan chức lớn bé có liên quan đến cuộc đàn áp nhưng dưới tội danh tham nhũng. Trước áp lực ngày càng mạnh mẽ từ cộng đồng quốc tế, dường như ông Tập đã hiểu ra rằng việc chấm dứt di họa tai tiếng này là điều không thể né tránh.

Theo ĐKN

          China blinks; Canada housing starts fall; Japan orders jump; China prices rise; air travel growth rises; Russia and Turkey battered; UST 10yr at 2.93%; oil and gold unchanged; NZ$1 = 66.3 USc; TWI-5 = 69.9      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Here's our summary of key events overnight that affect New Zealand, with news emerging economies are struggling to handle the fallout of a new chaotic trade environment.

Firstly, it looks like China has had a small blink in its trade tussle with the US. Omitted from its tariff retaliation was American crude oil, although sourcing that still will help keep prices down from other places - like Iran, where volume are rising.

In the first world, Canadian housing starts fell sharply in June, consistent with yesterday's weak building permit data.

Japanese machine tool orders rose more than expected in July, up by +13% and far better than its +11.4% rise in June.

In China, consumer prices rose at a faster pace in July, up +2.1% due to larger increases in food and fuel prices, while factory inflation slipped even though it is still at a high a +4.6% pa level.

Beijing is using the Shanghai markets to drive down interest rates. Overnight Shibor, a measure of the shortest-term bank lending rates, fell to 1.42% yesterday, its lowest since 2015. It ended the day a little higher however. This is a mechanism their Government is using to try to stimulate the economy by ensuring lenders have plenty of cheap funding to support businesses and consumers during the uncertainty of the trade war.

The central bank of the Philippines raised its official rate by its most in more than a decade, adding +50 bps to take it to 4.0%. They are battling fast-rising inflation which is now just under +6% and the rate hike comes despite growth falling below expectations.

Yesterday we reported a slowdown in the growth of air cargo traffic. Today we can report that international passenger traffic growth seems to be rising faster. Worldwide, passenger traffic was up +7.7% in June year-on-year. In the Asia-Pacific region it was up +9.5%. Both of these rates are faster than we have reported previously in 2018.

In the sea trade, shipping group Maersk said 94 companies and organizations have so far joined a blockchain platform developed with IBM aimed at boosting efficiency and limiting the enormous paper trail of global container shipping. This is one of the largest rollouts of blockchain technology in the world.

Meanwhile in some key emerging markets, new sanctions drove down Russia's ruble, while worries that Turkey was sliding into a full-blown economic crisis battered their currency. The Argentine and South African currencies were also hit hard.

The UST 10yr yield is down sharply at 2.93%, a -4 bps fall in a day. Their 2-10 curve has slipped to +28 bps. This is despite the US Treasury saying it will sell an eye-popping US$122 bln in new debt next week, taking total US Federal debt held by the public to US$15.6 tln, or 78% of US GDP. The Chinese 10yr is at 3.56% (up +3 bps) while the New Zealand equivalent is now just over 2.71%, down a very substantial -7 bps. And as we reported last night, New Zealand swap rates took a heavy dive yesterday, down about -10 bps across most of the curve.

Gold is little changed, today down -US$1 to US$1,212/oz.

US oil prices have stopped falling and are now still just under US$67/bbl. The Brent benchmark is now just over US$72/bbl. We should also note that Saudi Arabia's attempt to punish Canada over their fury for a perceived cultural slight is having zero impact. A trade war skirmish that failed.

The Kiwi dollar is starting today very much weaker having been dumped on after yesterday's RBNZ MPS and the Fonterra trading halt. It is now just at 66.3 USc and more than -1c lower. On the cross rates we are also very much weaker at 89.7 AUc, and at 57.3 euro cents. That puts the TWI-5 at 69.9 and under 70 for the first time in nearly three years.

Bitcoin is now at US$6.464 and +3.3% higher than this time yesterday. We track this rate daily in the interactive chart below.

Diễn biến ngoài thực địa

Báo Tiền Phong đưa tin, chiều tối 7/8, Văn phòng Ủy ban Quốc gia ứng phó sự cố, thiên tai và tìm kiếm cứu nạn cho biết, khoảng 9h cùng ngày tại khu vực cách Đông Đông Bắc Đà Nẵng khoảng 260 hải lý, cách Tây Nam đảo Linh Côn-Quần đảo Hoàng Sa khoảng 11 hải lý, tàu cá QNg 90546 TS với 12 ngư dân của Quảng Ngãi, đã bị một tàu Trung Quốc đâm chìm.

Sau khi nhận được thông tin trên, tàu cá QNg 90693 TS đã di chuyển đến vị trí kể trên để hỗ trợ tàu bị nạn. Văn phòng đã đề nghị Cục Lãnh sự-Bộ Ngoại giao thông báo cho Đại sứ Quán Trung Quốc tại Hà Nội biết để chỉ đạo cơ quan chức năng phía Trung Quốc có biện pháp bảo đảm an toàn tính mạng ngư dân trên tàu, đồng thời bảo đảm cho tàu QNg 90693 TS cứu nạn 12 ngư dân.

Ban Chỉ huy phòng chống thiên tai và tìm kiếm cứu nạn tỉnh Quảng Ngãi, cùng Bộ tham mưu Bộ đội Biên phòng chỉ đạo cơ quan chức năng phối hợp với chủ tàu, xác minh thông tin, duy trì liên lạc với tàu, huy động các tàu cá cùng tổ và các tàu gần khu vực đến hỗ trợ tàu bị nạn. Trung tâm Phối hợp TKCN Hàng hải Việt Nam phát thông báo hàng hải, duy trì liên lạc với tàu QNg 90693 TS. Như vậy là tàu cá đến cứu tàu cá và các lực lượng chức năng của Việt Nam theo dõi từ xa.

Trước đó, vào tháng 7/2018, Hội Nghề cá Việt Nam đưa ra 5 kiến nghị với Chính phủ về khai thác xa bờ, trong đó Hội cho biết trong những năm gần đây phía Trung Quốc và một số lực lượng của nước ngoài thường xuyên tấn công uy hiếp, cướp phá tài sản và đe dọa tính mạng của ngư hoạt động đánh bắt hải sản trên vùng biển chủ quyền của Việt Nam. Tuy nhiên mới chỉ một số ít ngư dân nhận được hỗ trợ tự phát từ các tổ chức, cá nhân làm từ thiện, còn thiếu chính sách hỗ trợ của Nhà nước.

Hội Nghề cá Việt Nam “đề nghị Chính phủ có chỉ đạo các Bộ ngành và cơ quan chức năng tăng cường biện pháp hỗ trợ ngư dân và ban hành chính sách hỗ trợ đối với những thiệt hại về người và tài sản của ngư dân khi hoạt động trên vùng biển chủ quyền Việt Nam bị các lực lượng Trung Quốc và nước ngoài tấn công.”

Đọc thêm: Tổng kết Hoạt Động Quân Sự Hoá của Trung Quốc ở Biển Đông Sáu Tháng Đầu Năm 2018. Bên cạnh các hoạt động triển khai máy bay chiến đấu, hệ thống tên lửa, tập trận với số lượng lớn tàu chiến nhằm phô diễn sức mạnh, đáng chú ý Trung Quốc đã thiết lập hơn 40 cơ sở radar khác nhau trên 7 đảo đá mà nước này chiếm giữ ở Trường Sa, nâng cao đáng kể năng lực “C4ISTAR” (chỉ huy, kiểm soát, truyền tin, máy tính, thông tin/tình báo, giám sát, thu thập thông tin về mục tiêu và trinh sát) của Trung Quốc ở khu vực.

Tự do hải hành ở Biển Đông

Vào tháng 8 năm nay, Pháp tiến hành Sứ mệnh Pegase trong đó triển khai một đội thuộc không quân nước này tới thăm Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore và Ấn Độ. Các máy bay trong Sứ mệnh Pegase sẽ di chuyển qua khu vực phía Nam của Biển Đông và đây được xem là cơ hội cho Pháp khẳng định quyền tự do hải hành và bay qua vùng trời theo Công ước Liên Hiệp Quốc về Luật Biển (UNCLOS).

Kể từ năm 2015, Pháp đã tiến hành nhiều chiến dịch trong đó nhiều tàu được triển khai tới Biển Đông, như tàu tấn công đổ bộ lớp Mistral và tàu hộ vệ trong sứ mệnh thường niên mang tên Jeanne d’Arc, tàu trinh sát Vendémiaire vào các năm 2014, 2015 và 2018, tàu trinh sát Prairial vào năm 2017 và 2 tàu săn ngầm lớp FREMM Provence và Auvergne lần lượt vào năm 2016 và 2018.

Theo TS Mathieu Duchâtel, Phó Giám đốc chương trình châu Á và Trung Quốc tại Hội đồng Quan hệ Đối ngoại châu Âu, việc Pháp triển khai thường xuyên các khí tài quân sự tại biển Đông phát đi những tín hiệu nhất định:

(1) Chống lại sự hăm doạ của Trung Quốc trong bối cảnh Trung Quốc đang sử dụng sức mạnh quân sự để tạo “sự đã rồi” ở Biển Đông, Paris muốn Bắc Kinh thấy rằng quân đội Pháp sẽ hoạt động tại bất kỳ khu vực nào luật quốc tế cho phép và Bắc Kinh không thể can thiệp.

(2) Pháp xem những hành động của Trung Quốc ở Biển Đông là sự đe doạ đối với tương lai của trật tự quốc tế dựa trên luật lệ;

(3) Pháp ủng hộ một khu vực Ấn Độ – Thái Bình Dương rộng mở và tự do và

(4) Pháp muốn tạo ra một liên minh nắm sức mạnh quân sự quan trọng và hoạt động trên toàn cầu thay vì chỉ giới hạn ở châu Âu.

Tuy nhiên hiện chưa rõ tàu Pháp có đi sâu vào khu vực lãnh hải và các vùng nước gần kề các thực thể địa lý mà Trung Quốc đang chiếm đóng ở Hoàng Sa và Trường Sa hay không.

Trong khi đó, Thẩm phán Philippines Antonio Carpio nói với báo Philippine Daily Inquirer, rằng Philippines nên thực hiện các hoạt động tự do hải hành chung không chỉ với các cường quốc hải quân mà còn nên kết hợp với cả Việt Nam, Malaysia, Brunei và Indonesia trong các vùng đặc quyền kinh tế ở Biển Đông.

Diễn biến đàm phán COC

Tiếp dòng sự kiện về đồng thuận của ASEAN-Trung Quốc về một văn bản duy nhất làm cơ sở cho đàm phán Bộ Quy tắc Ứng xử trên Biển Đông (COC), Thứ trưởng Ngoại giao Việt Nam Nguyễn Quốc Dũng – Trưởng phái đoàn Việt Nam tham dự Hội nghị Quan chức cấp cao ASEAN (SOM-ASEAN) nhận định: “Đây là một bước tiến quan trọng bởi qua bản dự thảo này chúng ta đã thống nhất được cách thức đàm phán và có cơ sở để đàm phán, ‘có bột để gột nên hồ’.
“Thế nhưng, ‘bột’ còn rất sơ khai vì bản dự thảo dù là duy nhất nhưng gồm rất nhiều các quan điểm khác nhau của các nước, các bên. Thế nên, để đi vào thống nhất được thì sẽ còn mất rất nhiều thời gian và có thể phải nhiều năm đi tới đàm phán. Đó chỉ là cơ sở để đàm phán chứ chưa biết được dẫn đến kết quả sẽ là một văn bản cuối cùng đạt được như thế nào vì còn trải qua một quá trình đàm phán lâu dài“, ông Nguyễn Quốc Dũng nói trong buổi trả lời phỏng vấn báo chí ngày 8/8.

Còn Ngoại trưởng Singapore Vivian Balakrishnan thì cho rằng, các nước ASEAN vẫn nên duy trì sự thống nhất với nhau trong quá trình đàm phán COC. Theo giáo sư Carl Thayer, hiện nay những cuộc thảo luận về thực thi Tuyên bố Ứng xử ở Biển Đông (DOC) và đàm phán COC được thực hiện giữa 11 bên, gồm Trung Quốc và 10 nước thành viên ASEAN, chứ không phải giữa Trung Quốc và khối ASEAN thống nhất.

Lý do của việc này là dự án luật đang được cân nhắc lại, trên cơ sở lắng nghe ý kiến của nhân dân - theo Tổng Thư ký Quốc hội Nguyễn Hạnh Phúc. Ông Phúc cho rằng cũng chưa vội vã lắm vì còn 2 tháng nữa kỳ họp thứ 6 của Quốc hội mới diễn ra.

          Philippines eyes shift back to cheaper, dirtier fuel to tame inflation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
MANILA, Aug 10- The Philippines' energy ministry has told oil companies to sell a cheaper but dirtier type of diesel oil to motorists to fight inflation, backing away from a two-year-old regulation that banned its use to improve air quality. The energy department's plan would need clearance from the environment department, which implemented Manila's switch to...

Don't give up on hope. 


A daily column on what the ALP have as a policy, supported by a local member, and how it has 'helped' the local community. I'll stop if I cannot identify a policy. Feel free to make suggestions. Contact me on FB, not twitter. I have twitter, but never look at it.

Gabrielle Williams was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Carers and Volunteers, working with the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing and the Minister for Families and Children. 



As part of the November 24th Vic election campaign I have a petition I want to bring before the Opposition Leader Matthew Guy. I believe Matthew will be the next premier of Victoria and so I am petitioning him as I raise the issues of Employment, Crime and Education in Dandenong. I am also seeking money for my campaign. I don't have party resources, and so my campaign is on foot, and on the internet. Any money I receive that is not spent on the campaign will go to Grow 4 Life. I am asking questions like "What do you love about Dandenong?" and "If you could change something in Dandenong to make it better, what would it be?" I'm not limiting the questions to state issues. I'm happy to discuss anything, and get things done.



I am a decent man and don't care for the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free. Youtube's Adsence refused to allow me to profit from their marketing it. Meanwhile, I am hostage to abysmal political leadership and hopeless journalists. My shopfront has opened on Facebook.

Here is a video I made Big Heart

Big Heart is two stories, originally titled 'Beating Heart' and 'Broken Heart.'
Sam is 14 years old, and dreams of making it big in the world. Only thing is, he gets no respect at school or at home. He has friends that deal in drugs, and he thinks he might make a success of it, but then people begin to die and Sam needs to work fast to escape the hole he has dug himself.
David Daniel Ball, wrote and narrated this story. It was originally published in the 'Werewolves of Wynyard' collection.

Some things should not happen, but they do. Victoria's opposition leader, Matthew Guy had a dinner with a guy banned from a casino and the ALP are demanding he resign and accusing him of consorting with gangsters. The denunciation is almost funny coming from anyone connected with the CFMEU. Almost. There is something behind the attack that hasn't been widely circulated, partly because it is before a court and in all likelihood, many frontline ALP members of parliament will be forced to resign for abuse of power in office. It involves the Red Shirt Brigade who support ALP by handing out how to vote cards, door knocking, phoning constituents and so on. Red shirts are supposed to be volunteers, and by electoral office rules, if they are paid by members, are restricted to that member's area. Only ALP offices have been paying their red shirts sums like $48 an hour and they have been acting outside their jurisdiction. I'll quote Matthew Guy from parliament on 8th March 2017. "Mr GUY (Leader of the Opposition) — Premier, you lead a chaotic, scandal-ridden government and a party that has seen three ministers, a whip and two Presiding Officers all forced to resign: Steve Herbert from the Legislative Council chauffeured his dogs from one end of the state to the other; your two former Presiding Officers perpetrate the biggest expenses rort in Victorian political history; the massive red shirt rorting of electorate office budgets; and millions of dollars spent on legal fees trying to stop the Ombudsman investigating these rorts. On top of all of that, Premier, you have allowed yourself to be blackmailed by the United Firefighters Union and Peter Marshall. Premier, is your government chaotic, incompetent, negligent or all of the above?" There is a court investigating the Red Shirt Brigade issue, and it is due to report soon. And the ALP know the findings will be damning. And all the ALP can do is complain about a lobster dinner engaged in public? 

At the battle of Lechfield in 955 Hungarians claimed to be Europeans, Germans disputed it, and won. In 991 at the Battle of Maldon, in Essex, Vikings faced Aethelred the Unready and won 3,300 Kg of silver. In 1270 Yekuno Amlak took the imperial throne of Ethiopia, restoring the Solomonic dynasty to power after a 100-year Zagwe interregnum. In 1316, the second battle of Athenry between Irish forces resulted in an Irish loss. No survivors wrote an account. Many lost their heads. In 1512, at the Battle of Saint-Mathieu, England's Henry VIII had a naval victory, but both the flagships blew up. Possibly the first engagement using port cannon. In 1519 Magellan set off on a round the world trip. He died en-route. His birthplace is disputed as to changeovers between Spain and Portugal. He might have been Palestinian. In 1628, Sweden built the magnificent Vasa, which sank twenty minutes into her maiden voyage. In 1675, desperate to know the correct time, the cornerstone to Royal Greenwich Observatory was laid. In 1776, the Declaration of independence reached London. In 1792 in the French Revolution Louis XVI was arrested and his entire bodyguard killed. The next year, the Musée du Louvre was opened. In 1846, the Smithsonian was chartered by the US Congress. In 1904 the Russians and Japanese faced off at the Battle of Yellow Sea and had a draw. In 1932, a meteorite weighing 5.1kg landed in Missouri. In 1948, Candid Camera made a tv debut a year after Candid Microphone began on Radio. In 1969, A day after murdering Sharon Tate and four others, members of Charles Manson's cult killed Leno and Rosemary LaBianca. In 1977, David Berkowitz was arrested, he was called the Son of Sam, and he had killed people at random. In 1981, the head of Adam Walsh was found. Adam was six years old and his death prompted his dad to start America's Most Wanted. In 1988, Reagan began paying compensation to living Japanese Americans detained in WW2 by signing the Civil Liberties act of 1988. In 1990, the Magellan space probe reached Venus, four hundred and seventy one years after Magellan set forth on a circumnavigation. In 1995, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nicholls were indicted for the Oklahoma Bombing. In 2003, the highest temperature ever recorded in the UK, 38.5 degrees centigrade was reached. It has been cooler ever since. On the same day, a couple married in space, but there is no evidence they were gay.

#AusCensusFail16 is another humiliation for the Turnbull government. A Benghazi type announcement blamed hackers for the planned failure. The agile, nimble, clever Turnbull government spent millions of dollars demonstrating it could not be trusted to implement online elections. What ultimately happened was that people attempted to complete the forms after work, before the evening got underway. So about 7PM Eastern Standard time, just after Turnbull tweeted he had successfully lodged his contribution to the census, the system crashed and twenty six hours later is still down. The data will never now be completed. Important data needed for planning. The Turnbull government had no agenda. This is just one of many humiliations for Turnbull before his inevitable resignation. And it is a salient lesson for those who are thinking of voting for Hillary Clinton. She too has no agenda to better the people she wants to vote for her. Corruption is not a plan for improvement. 

For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.  
=== from 2015 ===
ALP looks to have prospered through her abuse of power over the expenses scandal. To cap it off, the media protectors of the ALP have gloated. Claims are made that the new speaker will be fair, suggesting the previous one wasn't. But it was the ALP abusing power which got some four hundred evictions of her members under the previous speaker, Bronwyn Bishop. The attacks on Bishop, given that no one else is held to the same standard, is misogynistic. Tony Burke, as leader of opposition business locked horns with Bishop a lot and so he had a vested interest in lying to trash her career as Speaker. Burke and Shorten should resign, but instead get a poll bounce in their favour. One hopes that Mr Abbott is keeping this ace for an election. 
From 2014
It looked like a stunt when Jason Clare announced an inquest into sports drugs and gambling. Clare was deflecting attention away from the leadership challenge within the ALP which outsiders called between Rudd and Gillard but which also included Wong, Combet, Shorten, Clare, Carr, and a half dozen other cowards. Apparently, nothing was meant to happen, although two major codes and a few clubs and many players and trainers were smeared, called drug cheats and or forced out of the game. It looks like politicians tried to railroad athletes into admitting guilt. In the US, Obama has done much the same, for similar reasons. No player in any sport has been found guilty of what Clare claimed was endemic to all sports. In related news, the ALP has no policy on anything, but opposes everything the government proposes. When the LNP were in opposition, they supported 80% of the legislation. But the difference is in the monitoring. ABC criticise the 18C backdown even as they denied the need for change.

TAIWAN EXCELLENCE

ARGOMALL 

Renowned Czech abstract artist and designer, Radim Kacer, ponders: “Abstract painting doesn't mean anything; it’s supposed to only evoke imagination. It's like a mirror for our mind. When you observe pure abstract space and calm your mind, you start seeing your own thoughts on a conscious and subconscious level. It's like dreaming and being awake at the same time. You can observe your dreams consciously. The main feature of our brain is imagination. It works all the time, it never stops. This process is individual and reflects only the mind of the observer.”


Kacer shares his art via the digital medium. His study and work with abstract patterns in digital images led him to invent OrganikPixel technology, a method for ultra-high definition digital images. And in 2018, he established his own brand, Radim Kacer™, which is focused on making original wallpapers for screens by using OrganikPixel technology. This technique that Kacer invented can create textures in 20K resolution. And because it does not use any pattern generators, plugins or scripts, his one-of-a-kind designs cannot be easily used or copied by anyone else.

Argomall is the first ever on-demand online shop in the Philippines.

ShopeeMart

           India ranks No 2 in seafarer manpower supply, ahead of China, Indonesia      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Director General of Shipping in India, Malini Shankar, has said that the nation has overtaken China and Indonesia in maritime manpower, according to Shipping Gazette.Speaking in an interview with the New Delhi's Indian Express Dr Shankar said Philippines was by far the leader in maritime manpower."We were fourth, today we are second, we have overtaken China and Indonesia. We spent four months collecting data since 2010 on this and validating it. We have crossed 1.5 lakh (150,000) seafarers who are active on boat."There is a steady increase in all cadres. When we opened it up to the private sector in 1997, we had only five government institutions that formed a part of the Indian Maritime University. We opened it up to the private sector because there was a huge growth in shipping. So now we have over 160 private institutions. We removed the cap, so existing institutions cannot sit smug if their quality suffers."The Director General also stressed that there is evolution in technology in ships and people need to be trained, take refresher courses. "If you don't upgrade yourself you can't get a job on these ships with upgraded technology.On piracy, she said that it has come tremendously adding that the issue has been addressed at different levels. "On the shipping side, they have agreed to what is called the best management practices. Within the ship, you don't leave certain things open, there is something called the citadel, it has to be known to the crew. Many of these instances of piracy happen in cases where they practices are not followed."

          Video Surveillance Storage Market Product Type, Demand and Production Statistic by 2022      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/10/2018 -- Use of video surveillance in organizations across each vertical is growing, mounting up new challenges related to handling surveillance systems and storing the exponentially increasing volume of raw video footage. Many of the large enterprises use more than 100 cameras on an average, which are functioning 24*7 around the clock—with no end in sight. The number of surveillance cameras and the worth of video analytics are only projected to grow and so is the need for video surveillance storage. Commercial expansion triggers maximum investment in video surveillance; higher capacity storage media is a vital prerequisite for these system upgrades. With the advancement in storage technologies over the last decade and introduction of IP cameras, the process of video surveillance became simpler and the demand for video surveillance storage amplified.

The ever-increasing installations of surveillance systems across all verticals promises significant growth opportunity for video surveillance storage market. Furthermore, gaining popularity of cloud-based storage coupled with need to comply with necessary security regulations is further expected to buttress the growth of video surveillance storage market during the projected period. However, risk of vendor lock-in, which bars the end-users from migrating to other vendor's platform, is expected to hinder the growth of video surveillance storage market. Also, high cost associated with storage systems is likely to restrain the growth of the global video surveillance storage market amidst the forecast period 2015-2025.
