Swaksi na sa Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) ang bagyong Ompong. Napakalakas daw nito kaya lubos ang paghahanda ng LGUs sa mga lugar na tatamaan nito. Let's continue to pray na maging ligtas ang lahat at kung pwede lang, matunaw ito bago pa makapaminsala.

Dahil din kay Ompong, postponed ang taunang UPCAT. Unahin muna ang safety ng kabataan tsaka more time ito para sila ay makapag-review pa. Best of luck sa kanila!

Isa pang postponed ay ang kauna-unahang Mister World Philippines competition. Dapat sana ay sa Sabado na itez (September 15) but of course, may umeksenang bagyo. AMP! Kahit siguro itinuloy itez, hindi mapipigilan ang 'sangkabaklaan para manood. Kesehodang lumangoy pa kami sa baha, rarampa kami diyan!

Unang beses pa lang magkakaroon ng MrWP dahil appointed ni Madame Cory Quirino at ng Miss World Philippines Organization sina Andrew Wolff, John Spainhour at Sam Ajdani. OH! Binanggit ko lang sila, nag-water na kayo. P'wes, ihanda niyo pa ang mga sarili niyo dahil labing anim na nagsasarapang otoko ang maglalaban-laban para sa titulo. Wit niyo kakayanin ang kalidad ng mga sumali. Upper echelon compare to other local male pageants. 'Di nga me sanay kasi panay bikini contests ang watch ko. CHAR!

Medyo conservative din ang MrWP dahil walang swimwear round. Walang nagsisikipang trunks. ANO BA! Well, wala rin kasi ganun sa Mister and Miss World kaya hanggang boardshorts na lang ang pinakasexy nilang sinuot. NAKAKABITIN! 'Yung parang puputok na sana pero naunsyami. CHOS! Sherep pa rin naman kaya keri na.

Eto na, ihahanda ko na sa ating karinderya ang 16 contestants. Tanong nga ni makiring Taylor... are you ready for it?

Joshua Banatin (mahal ko talaga siya!)

 Denver Hernandez

 Robin Hanrath (ako yata ang Cinderella niya)

1/700 Japan Navy Heavy Cruiser Nachi [Full Hull Limited Edition]This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

Philippine thunder
Nachi was part of the legendary and massive Myoko class of heavy cruisers. When it was commissioned in 1928, it was one of the largest cruisers in existence. For the next sixteen years, its ten 8-inch guns, eight 127 mm guns and 12 Type 93 Long Lance Torpedoes stood ready to send enemies of Japan to the bottom. Late in 1944, however, Nachi was stuck in the Philippines-attending to a sequence of minor repairs. It was sunk off Corregidor by aircraft in 12 feet of water. Kit features a full hull and display stand.

          Duterte opponents sidelined, arrested or worse in Philippines      Cache   Translate Page      
Philippines President Duterte, notorious for his murderous war on drugs, has ordered the arrest and trial of a high-profile opposition senator, amid rumours of a possible coup. Social researcher Dr Steven Rood speaks with PM on the growing list of Duterte opponents being sidelined - or, in some cases, turning up dead.
          US Fed sees trade cutbacks, more rate hikes; US PPI falls; EU factory production falls; euro as reserve currency; China pumps in liquidity; UST 10yr at 2.98%; oil and gold up sharply; NZ$1 = 65.6 USc; TWI-5 = 69.4      Cache   Translate Page      

Here's our summary of key events overnight that affect New Zealand, with news oil prices are up sharply today.

But first, in its latest Beige Book review of economic conditions around the country, the American Fed reports businesses have scaled back or postponed investments due to concerns about international trade tensions. Overall, this survey sees the American economy expanding at a "moderate pace".

And the Fed is continuing to signal that rate hikes, even if gradual, will continue for the next few years. Pointedly they say that this will be the case even if their rate curve inverts. (On that, they say this time is different.)

American producer prices fell in August from July is a surprise shift lower. This was the first month-on-month drop in about 18 months. And it happened for services. Overall, it means that year-on-year, producer prices are +2.8% higher and a big reduction in annual growth from July when they were +3.3% higher.

Also shifting lower are American mortgage applications. They fell in August, and they are still falling in September and by larger levels than analysts were expecting.

EU industrial production also fell in July, and that slippage has been cumulative so that year-on-year levels are now lower.

But the president of the EU is still sounding positive. In his State of the Union address earlier today he called for the euro to be new dominant global reserve currency, saying the US is abrogating its international responsibilities and the EU is ready to step up.

On the trade front, Canada's leaders are huddling trying to figure out their response to a recalcitrant US position on NAFTA. The Mexicans say they are prepared to go it alone, and the Americans say they are reaching out to China in "one last attempt" before new higher and broader tariffs are imposed.

In China, their central bank is back injecting money directly into their economy, supposedly to cover a short liquidity strain while tax payments are due, but more likely as part of an overall campaign to shore up lending and demand, as they try to keep the adjustment hurt from surfacing.

Today, the UST 10yr yield is lower at 2.96%, a -2 bps dip in a day. However, their 2-10 curve is tighter at just +21 bps. The Aussie Govt 10yr is at 2.59% (up +1 bp), the China Govt 10yr is at 3.70% and also up +1 bp, while the NZ Govt 10 yr is at 2.62%, up +2 bps.

Gold is rising today, up a chunky +US12 at US$1,208/oz in New York.

US oil prices are up sharply for a second day in a row and now just over US$70/bbl. The Brent benchmark is also higher, now just on US$80/bbl. These are big, fast rises brought about by a sharp fall in US crude inventories, the Iran sanctions, the expected impact from the US hurricane, and the growing fears a big typhoon will hit Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Philippines.

The Kiwi dollar is starting today firmer at 65.6 USc. On the cross rates we are at 91.5 AUc, and at 56.4 euro cents. That puts the TWI-5 at 69.4.

Bitcoin is marginally firmer at US$6,280. Also this. This price is tracked in the currency charts below.

          World Clean Up Day 15 September 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
The biggest civic action in the history of our planet, the World Cleanup Day, will take place on 15 September. On this day, millions of people from 150 countries will come together to take a step towards a cleaner world and draw attention to the global waste problem.

The biggest civic action in the world started in Estonia in 2008 and will be overseen from Estonia on 15 September. This means that we have the chance to make Estonia bigger than ever before in just one day.

Come along and join the cleanup action!

Find the nearest pile of rubbish, take some bin bags and gloves with you, and clean it up. Even the smallest contribution helps! You will find the contact details of the teams in your country at www.worldcleanupday.org/contact/

World Clean Up Day 15 September 2018

●    The World Cleanup Day will be held on 15 September 2018.
●    The biggest civic action in the world started in Estonia in 2008 and will be overseen from Estonia on 15 September. Approximately 150 countries will start cleaning up the Earth on the same day under the leadership of Estonia.
●    Let’s Do It World Cleanup Day is part of the Estonia 100 programme and is the biggest gift from Estonians to the world.
●    The World Cleanup Day will follow the Sun around the world – the cleanup will start at 10 am in New Zealand and end 36 hours later in Hawaii. The action will kick off on 14 September at 11 pm Estonian time.
●    The headquarters of the World Cleanup Day will be based in Tallinn and the results of the action, information, TV broadcasts, etc. from all over the world will be gathered there. The global TV broadcast will be hosted from the headquarters in Tallinn and shared all over the planet.
●    Millions of people will come out in support of cleaner nature, with an aim to take a step towards a cleaner world together and draw attention to the global problem of waste and seek possible solutions.
●    In Estonia, the cleanup action will focus on forests, beaches, lake shores and river banks.

Facts about the waste problem

●    According to the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA), ca 4 billion tons of waste is generated every year, of which ca 1.6 billion tons  is household waste.
●    3.5 billion people in the world have no access to waste management systems and the waste ends up in nature, incl. in oceans, or it is burnt.
●    According to the Global Waste Management Outlook, hundreds of millions of tons of illegal waste ends up in nature every year and from there makes its way to the oceans. 80% of the waste floating in oceans is of mainland origin.
●    This is why the problem of waste is just as critical for developed countries as it is for developing ones. Although several associations monitor waste in different regions of the world, insufficient information about the quantities and locations of the waste prevents dealing with the problem efficiently.

The story of the World Cleanup Day

●    A group of people, including Rainer Nõlvak, Toomas Trapido, Henri Laupmaa and Kadri Allikmäe, sat down together in August 2007 and came up with the idea to clean Estonia from waste in one day. Ahti Heinla, Tiina Urm, Tatjana Lavrova, Eva Truuverk and Anneli Ohvril joined them later. 620 volunteers and over 500 organisations in Estonia helped make Let’s Do It! a success.
●    More than 50 thousand people cleaned up over 10 thousand tons of waste on 3 May 2008. It would have taken the state years and cost 22.5 million euros. But it got done in one day and only cost half a million euros (mostly the cost of waste handling by waste management companies).
●    The first country to join Estonia’s initiative was Lithuania, which carried out a supporting cleanup day with Estonia (with a couple of thousands of volunteers on 3 May 2008). Latvia carried out a cleanup action in autumn; Slovenia, Portugal, Serbia and many others followed suit.
●    Almost 20 million people from more than a hundred countries of the world have cleaned up their territories at different times based on the Let’s Do It! model.
●    Maximum numbers of cleanup day participants: Latvia (210,000), Lithuania (250,000), Portugal (100,000), Slovenia (270,000), Romania (250,000), Albania (281,000), Hungary (200,000), Bulgaria (375,000), Ukraine (500,000), India (54,000), the Philippines (28,000), etc.

          BWorld 248, Inflation, energy prices and mini-greed      Cache   Translate Page      
* This is my column in BusinessWorld on September 06, 2018.


INFLATION has further jumped to high levels. Only 2.9% in December 2017 (no TRAIN law yet), it became 3.4% by January 2018 (first month of TRAIN law), 3.8% in February, 5.7% in July, and now 6.4% in August 2018.

While high world oil prices and peso depreciation against the US dollar were among the important factors, it was the energy tax hikes in the TRAIN law — oil, LPG, coal, plus coverage of VAT in electricity transmission charge — that triggered and sustained the inflationary pressure.

And talking about inflation and energy prices, the recent Pulse Asia Research’s “Ulat ng Bayan Survey,” June 15-21, 2018 is among the misleading surveys that will indirectly justify higher electricity prices. How?

See two of their three questions, loaded and leading:

1. How satisfied or dissatisfied are you with the price of your electricity?

3. Are you in favor or not in favor of increasing the use of renewable energy in the Philippines such as energy from the sun or solar energy?

On #1, Pulse Asia did not explain to respondents that there are nine different charges in our monthly electricity bill that contribute to higher overall rate: generation charge, transmission charge, distribution charge, supply charge, system loss charge, metering charge, universal charge, feed-in-tariff (FIT) subsidies, taxes. Loaded question with an expected high answer of Dissatisfied.

On #3, another loaded question as it does not clarify that even with more solar energy, the eight different charges will remain and worse, the FIT subsidy for solar will further rise.

So the result of their survey was: Question #1, 64% dissatisfied and only 27% satisfied, 14% undecided. Question #3, 89% in favor, 9% not in favor and 2% volunteered/undecided.

Having more intermittent, unstable and unreliable solar and wind power in the national grid can lead to higher prices because of the higher need for backup power, ancillary services that are mostly oil-based, and huge batteries. This is shown in both Europe and the US where in many cases, countries and states with high reliance on wind + solar also have higher electricity prices.


Then two House bills sprang up out of nowhere. HBs 8013 and 8015 entitled “An Act Granting Solar Para sa Bayan Corporation a Franchise to Construct, Install, Establish, Operate and Maintain Distributable Power Technologies and Minigrid Systems throughout the Philippines to Improve Access to Sustainable Energy” were filed only last month, Aug. 6, and were quickly approved by the House committee on legislative franchise on Aug. 29. The committee report was approved last Sept. 3 and will go to plenary this week or next week.

This is a very anti-EPIRA bill and, hence, an attempt to legalize many illegal provisions. While all players in the generation, distribution and supply sectors comply with specific requirements of the EPIRA law, this newbie, no track record corporation wants to do anything they want — can connect anywhere, can build their own grid anywhere, can carve out to DUs franchise areas, will pay only 3% franchise tax in lieu of all taxes, exemption to universal charges, COC and local taxes.

In a position paper by the Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives, Inc. (PhilRECA), some parts reported in BusinessWorld last Sept. 4, PhilRECA observed that:

“Solar para sa Bayan Corp. said that it could offer electricity at an equal or much lower cost compared with the ERC approved rates of ECs… Paluan was cited as an example with P8.00 per kWh. However… the company is actually charging more at P10.37 to P15.29 per kWh… such misrepresentation… that corporation could not afford to offer lower rates.”

This newbie corporation whose franchise is all ready for a congressional plenary is owned by a son of a sitting “environmentalist” senator.

To have cheaper and more stable electricity, we need more competition, less government cronyism and favoritism, and less energy taxation.

          The fast rising price of ‘Dutertenomics’      Cache   Translate Page      
* This is my first article in the Asia Times, published last month. More than 2,700 shares as of today, thanks readers.


Inflation is finally catching up with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s high octane economic stimulus measures, a fast growth-geared policy push known locally as “Dutertenomics.”

Statistics released this week showed inflation rose 5.7% in July, the fastest rate in over five years, according to the National Economic Development Authority, a state agency. It marked the fifth consecutive month that inflation breached the central bank’s 2%-4% target band, leading to market speculation that it will soon hike interest rates.

The surge in prices has sparked a local debate over whether global or local factors are more to blame. Economic analysts note that inflation rates were modest as recently as late last year, clocking in at 3% and 2.9% in November and December respectively.

However, Duterte’s controversial Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law came into force in January, a broad-based tax hike that many believe has driven the inflationary trend. Indeed, inflation has steadily risen in recent months: 3.4% in January, 3.8% in February, 4.3% in March, 4.5% in April, 4.6% in May, 5.2% in June, and 5.7% in July, or almost double the December 2017 level of 2.9%.

Duterte’s tax law was passed to help finance the government’s ultra-ambitious infrastructure spending plans, estimated at 8 trillion pesos (US$150 billion) over six years, as well as social welfare programs that aim to reduce poverty from 21% to 15% by the end of his term in 2022. While taxes have risen, widespread infrastructure-building has largely failed to materialize.

Still, the Philippines has recently been among Asia’s fastest growing economies, with gross domestic product (GDP) growth of 6.9% in 2016 and 6.7% last year. But that growth is now decelerating as inflationary pressures start to weigh against consumption and investment. Second quarter GDP growth fell to 6%, from 6.6% in the first quarter. That means first half GDP growth was only 6.3%, down significantly from the government’s full-year target of 7%.

Duterte’s economic managers, including officials at the Department of Finance (DOF), National Economic Development Authority (NEDA), Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), have played down the TRAIN tax’s impact on galloping prices while at the same time scrambled to offer credible alternative explanations for the inflationary surge.

They have generally pointed to three main factors supposedly beyond their policy control, namely rising global oil prices, a recent fast depreciation of the peso which is currently among Asia’s worst performing currencies this year, and “profiteering” by big and small private businesses that have allegedly unscrupulously marked up their prices.

While the TRAIN law has cut personal income taxes, it has raised several other levies, especially for energy sources such as oil, liquefied petroleum gas and coal. Sin taxes for sugary drinks and tobacco have also been upped, while an expanded 12% value-added tax (VAT) now covers more economic sectors, including electricity transmission and foreign currency-denominated sales.

Official attempts to mostly blame higher global oil prices for the local surge in prices, however, doesn’t hold statistically when compared with other net-fuel importers in the region. Indeed, other oil-importing nations such as Thailand, South Korea and Sri Lanka have all seen a decline in inflation in the first half of this year compared to their full year 2017 rates.


The inflation differential for developed countries between January-June 2018 vis-a-vis 2017 is also statistically miniscule, measuring -0.1 for the United Kingdom, 0.1 for Germany, 0.4 for France and the United States, and 0.6 for Canada.

Instead, it is mostly domestic factors that are driving the Philippines’ inflation situation. First and foremost, inflation is hitting the poorest 30% of Filipino households harder than other demographic groups. In the first half of 2018, overall Philippine inflation was 4.3% but for poor households it was higher at 5%.

That’s because while “food and non-alcoholic beverages” comprise only 38% of the overall Consumer Price Index (CPI) basket, used for calculating the national inflation rate, the products constitute 61% of the poor’s consumption. The telling statistics were calculated by Dr Dennis Mapa, dean of the University of the Philippines School of Statistics (UPSS).

Nor is there any near-term relief in sight. Fare hikes for taxis, buses and point-to-point air-conditioned vans will soon come on-stream, as will phase two tax hikes on oil, LPG and coal in January 2019. A third phase tax hike on energy will be imposed in January 2020 as part of the Train tax reforms. Firms are also expected to start raising wages due to labor demands over TRAIN’s impact on prices, leading to a potential virtuous cycle of inflation.

          Philippines is Country of Focus at Fukuoka Asian International Film Fest 2018      Cache   Translate Page      

Wazzup Pilipinas!

With a partnership with the Film Development Council of the Philippines, the Focus on Asia Fukuoka International Film Festival joins and celebrates Philippine Cinema for its One Hundred Years by highlighting a Special Feature on Filipino Films for its 2018 edition. Considered as a Country of Focus celebration, the Agency will lead the delegation of Filipino filmmakers, artists, and academicians this September in Fukuoka, Japan. 



"The City of Fukuoka which organizes the Festival has given importance to Philippine Cinema since way back. Just a year after its inception in 1991, Lino Brocka's Insiang already found its way as the Philippines’ first official entry to the Festival. Since then, many other important Filipino films and filmmakers have been invited in Fukuoka to participate in discussion sessions as well as symposia which brought about a relationship of exchange with the audience of Fukuoka. This is why we are very proud that this year, we finally get to partner with them so we celebrate the centennial of Philippine Cinema together and looking forward to the future of our films," said FDCP Chairperson and CEO Liza Diño. 


The Special Feature entitled “Drawn and Attracted to the Sacred Chaos" will feature the outstanding Filipino films directed by young filmmakers to represent the future of the country's cinema, including Nervous Translation directed by Shireen Seno, Bagahe by Zig Dulay, Smaller and Smaller Circles by Raya Martin, and Women of the Weeping River by Sheron Dayoc. The Festival will also feature on Omnibus of regional short films with Hilom by PR Patindol, Gikan sa Ngitngit Nga Kinaidlaman by Kiri Dalena, Babylon by Keith Deligero, Si Astri Maka si Tambulah by Xeph Suarez, and Jodilerks Dela Cruz, Employee of the Month by Carlo Francisco Manatad. 



Fukuoka’s special program entitled Restoration Asia VI will feature another Filipino classic masterpiece from the 1970s, “Nunal Sa Tubig" ("Speck in the Water") directed by Ishmael Bernal will be screened in the Festival as a digital restoration of the 35mm film print archived under the collection of the Fukuoka City Public Library (Film Archive). The film will be screened with both Japanese and English subtitles.


This will be followed by a discussion on restoration which will be chaired by Hisashi Okajima, Director of Nationa Film Archive of Japan and will include Leo Katigbak, Head of Film Restoration and Archives of ABS-CBN, Adrian Wood, Founder & Coordinator, Restoration Asia, Fukuoka and FDCP Chairperson and CEO Mary Liza Diño.

FDCP will also host the SPOTLIGHT: Philippine Cinema Centennial Talks which the agency features in its participation to international markets and film festivals where Philippine Cinema has made a mark whether currently or in the past. For Fukuoka, the topic will focus on the PHILIPPINES’ ALTERNATIVE and ARCHIPELAGIC CINEMA on September 16, 2018, 4:00PM at United Cinemas Canal City 13. The speakers in the panel include Laila Ulao, Lead Actress of Women of the Weeping River, Director Zig Dulay of Bagahe (The Baggage), Director Shireen Seno and Producer John Torres of Nervous Translation and Teng Mangansakan, Festival Director of Salamindanaw Asian Film Festival to be introduced by FDCP Chairperson Diño.

A Philippine Night will also be held to introduce the Filipino delegation to Asian and international partners for exploration and discussion of collaboration and partnerships. 

Focus on Asia Fukuoka International Film Festival runs from September 14 to 23, 2018 in Fukuoka, Japan.

          Việt Nam và Indonesia hợp tác chống đánh cá lậu, gia tăng thương mại      Cache   Translate Page      
Tổng thống Indonesia Joko Widodo và chủ tịch nước Việt Nam Trần Đại Quang duyệt hàng quân danh dự tại Hà Nội ngày 11/09/2018.
Phát thanh RFI ngày 12.09.2018


Theo AP hôm nay 12/09/2018, tổng thống Indonesia Joko Widodo đã loan báo đã thỏa thuận được với Việt Nam về việc hợp tác chống lại nạn đánh cá bất hợp pháp trên biển, đồng thời bày tỏ hy vọng tăng cường thương mại song phương.

Trong khuôn khổ chuyến công du Việt Nam ba ngày đồng thời tham dự Diễn đàn Kinh tế ASEAN, ông Widodo (Jokowi) cùng với chủ tịch Việt Nam Trần Đại Quang đã ký kết tuyên bố về việc tự nguyện hợp tác chống đánh cá bất hợp pháp.

Từ khi ông Jokowi lên làm tổng thống năm 2014, Indonesia có thái độ hết sức cứng rắn trong vấn đề này. Hàng trăm tàu đánh cá nước ngoài đã bị phá hủy, hầu hết là tàu Việt Nam, Philippines, Malaysia, Thái Lan, và hiếm khi đụng đến tàu Trung Quốc.

Phát biểu trong cuộc họp báo chung với chủ tịch nước Việt Nam, tổng thống Indonesia bày tỏ hy vọng nâng thương mại song phương hàng năm từ 6,8 tỉ đô la lên 10 tỉ đô la vào năm 2020. Ông Jokowi cũng đề nghị Việt Nam dỡ bỏ rào cản thương mại. 

Về phía ông Trần Đại Quang cho biết đôi bên đã thỏa thuận tăng cường hợp tác về quân sự và an ninh, để đối phó với các thách thức đang tăng lên trong khu vực.

          Indonesia Masuk Daftar Negara dengan Risiko Krisis Paling Kecil      Cache   Translate Page      

REDAKSIINDONESIA-Analisis yang dilakukan Nomura Holdings Inc menunjukkan ada delapan negara berkembang yang dipandang memiliki risiko paling kecil terpapar krisis moneter. Negara-negara tersebut antara lain Indonesia, Brasil, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Peru, Filipina, Rusia, dan Thailand. Dalam analisis Nomura, delapan negara tersebut memperoleh skor nol terkait risiko krisis moneter. Artinya, negara-negara itu memiliki risiko yang sangat kecil untuk mengalami krisis.

 
 
Analisis Nomura didasarkan pada model peringatan awal krisis yang dinamakan Damocles. Model tersebut memeriksa sejumlah faktor, termasuk cadangan devisa, tingkat utang, suku bunga, dan impor. Berikut ini penjelasan terkait 8 negara berkembang yang memiliki risiko paling kecil terpapar krisis moneter. 
 
1. Indonesia
 
Nilai tukar rupiah beberapa waktu terakhir mengalami pelemahan terhadap dollar AS. Namun, pelemahan tersebut dipandang cenderung gradual dan sejalan dengan kebijakan pengetatan moneter yang dilakukan bank sentral AS Federal Reserve. Meski begitu, Indonesia dipandang cukup resilien dalam menghadapi kondisi tersebut, terlihat dari cadangan devisa yang cukup tinggi untuk menahan pelemahan nilai tukar lebih lanjut. Selain itu, pemerintah pun telah melakukan serangkaian upaya untuk memperbaiki defisit transaksi berjalan. Rasio utang Indonesia pun dipandang masih cukup baik. Dengan cadangan devisa yang tercatat 117 miliar dollar AS dan rendahnya rasio utang terhadap produk domestik bruto (PDB), Indonesia masih cukup kuat dalam menahan pelemahan nilai tukar. 2. Brasil 
Nilai tukar real Brasil terpuruk terhadap dollar AS selama 2,5 tahun terakhir. Hal ini disebabkan kenaikan suku bunga di AS dan ketidakpastian politik di Negeri Samba tersebut. Namun, di sisi lain, perekonomian Brasil sedang mengalami pemulihan meski masih cenderung underperform, yang didorong konsumsi dalam negeri. Pertumbuhan ekonomi Brasil sejauh ini mencapai 1,1 persen, jauh di bawah ekspektasi sebelumnya, yakni 2,7 persen. Bank sentral Brasil pun telah melakukan serangkaian upaya stabilisasi real, antara lain kebijakan swap valas. Awal Agustus 2018 lalu pun suku bunga acuan ditahan di level 6,5 persen.  
 
3. Kazakhstan
Sama seperti negara-negara berkembang lainnya, nilai tukar mata uang tenge Kazakhstan juga melemah terhadap dollar AS. Bank sentral Kazakhstan menyebut, nilai tukar tenge melemah lantaran ketegangan geopolitik, kebijakan proteksionisme AS, dan sanksi yang diterapkan terhadap Rusia, China, dan Turki. Namun, bank sentral tetap mempertahankan rezim nilai tukar mengambang dan siap melakukan intervensi untuk stabilisasi tenge. Selain itu, negara tersebut juga terus mengembangkan pariwisata. 
 
4. Bulgaria
 
Pemerintah Bulgaria tengah mengusahakan keanggotaan mata uang euro dan uni perbankan Uni Eropa hingga Juni 2019 mendatang. Oleh karena itu, ada sejumlah persyaratan yang harus dipenuhi perekonomian Bulgaria. Hal ini turut membuat perekonomian negara tersebut cenderung solid. Beberapa syarat itu antara lain perbaikan bingkai kerja keuangan makro, memperkuat pengawasan sektor keuangan non-bank, serta upaya lebih keras dalam memberantas pencucian uang. Reuters mewartakan, inflasi Bulgaria cenderung rendah. Selain itu, anggaran Bulgaria pun mengalami surplus dan rasio utang pemerintah cenderung rendah. 
 
5. Peru
Nilai tukar peso Peru turut melemah terhadap dollar AS, mengikuti negara-negara berkembang lainnya sejalan dengan krisis keuangan yang terjadi di Argentina. Meski demikian, perekonomian negara di Amerika Selatan tersebut terus memperlihatkan peningkatan yang signifikan. Pertumbuhan ekonomi Peru didukung investasi swasta yang terus meningkat porsinya. Pada tahun 2019 mendatang, pertumbuhan investasi swasta diprediksi mencapai 7,9 persen, naik dari 5 persen pada tahun 2018 ini. Salah satu pendorong utama investasi swasta adalah proyek-proyek pertambangan. Adapun investasi pemerintah diperkirakan tumbuh 14 persen tahun ini. 
 
6. Filipina
 
Pertumbuhan ekonomi Filipina dihantui beberapa risiko, antara lain inflasi yang tinggi dan risiko eksternal. Namun demikian, pertumbuhan ekonomi negara tetangga Indonesia tersebut masih cukup tinggi, yakni 6 persen pada kuartal II 2018. Bank sentral Filipina menyatakan, perekonomian Filipina cukup resilien menghadapi risiko eksternal, termasuk krisis di sejumlah negara berkembang, seperti Turki dan Argentina. Gubernur Banko Sentral Ng Filipinas Nestor Espenilla mengungkapkan, fundamental ekonomi Filipina sangat bagus. "Pertumbuhan (ekonomi) kita sangat kuat, posisi fiskal kita tersusun rapi, dan posisi eksternal kita cenderung baik meski defisit, serta rasio utang rendah," kata Espenilla seperti dikutip dari Philippines Star.
 
7. Rusia
 
Perekonomian Rusia dihantui sejumlah risiko, seperti dijatuhkannya sanksi oleh AS hingga krisis. Akan tetapi, pertumbuhan ekonomi negara tersebut dipandang memiliki prospek yang cukup baik, meski diyakini tak akan terlalu tinggi.   Menurut Perdana Menteri Rusia Dmitry Medvedev, ada sejumlah indikator perekonomian Rusia yang tercatat baik. Rasio utang luar negeri telah mencapai level minimun.   Selain itu, daya saing industri manufaktur Rusia juga menguat, serta substitusi impor terjadi di sejumlah segmen. Kemudian, ekspor non-migas juga tumbuh positif, termasuk peningkatan peran sektor keuangan.   
 
8. Thailand
 
Berkebalikan dengan negara-negara berkembang lainnya, nilai tukar baht Thailand justru menguat. Bahkan, baht merupakan mata uang berkinerja terbaik di Asia dan nilainya terus stabil sepanjang tahun.   Perkasanya baht merupakan dampak dari fundamental ekonomi Thailand yang kuat. Inflasi di Negeri Gajah Putih tersebut rendah dan surplus transaksi berjalannya pun besar.   VOA mewartakan, besarnya surplus transaksi berjalan Thailand sebagian didorong pertumbuhan sektor pariwisatanya yang sangat kuat. Surplus transaksi berjalan mendukung kuatnya nilai mata uang suatu negara dan berarti negara tersebut kurang bergantung pada mata uang asing.   Selain itu, Thailand adalah eksportir besar mobil dan barang-barang lainnya, yang juga memberikan kontribusi penting terhadap surplus transaksi berjalan.

          Trung Cộng: Mũi tiến công xâm lược Biển Đông mang tên ADIZ      Cache   Translate Page      

Tiến sỹ Trần Công Trục
 

(GDVN) - Khó có thể tránh được nguy cơ Trung Quốc đơn phương áp đặt ADIZ ở Biển Đông, bởi cách đây không lâu họ tuyên bố các vùng cấm đánh cá, quy chế biên phòng...


Lâu nay, dư luận đã hết sức quan ngại về một “vùng nhận diện phòng không” mới sẽ được Trung Quốc công bố thiết lập trên bầu trời Biển Đông.

Gần đây, giới quan sát, phân tích chính trị quốc tế cũng đang bàn tán xôn xao về những thông tin tín hiệu có liên quan đến sự kiện này.


Philippines Daily Inquirer ngày 16/5 dẫn lời nhà phân tích Richard Heydarian nhận định, Trung Quốc sẽ sớm thiết lập vùng nhận diện phòng không:


Nhà nghiên cứu Biển Đông
người Philippines, Richard 
Heydarian, ảnh: QZ
"Người Trung Quốc đang thiếu một tuyên bố vùng nhận diện phòng không ở Biển Đông. Tôi nghĩ rằng chúng ta đang tiến tới thời điểm đó.

Bây giờ chúng ta đã thấy Trung Quốc họ phát triển bộ khung của một vùng nhận diện phòng không (bất hợp pháp) ở quần đảo Trường Sa, sẽ cung cấp cho họ khả năng áp đặt một ADIZ.

Rõ ràng, tất cả các hình ảnh chụp từ vệ tinh đã chứng minh với chúng ta rằng, Trung Quốc đã hành động ngược với lời họ nói, đó là thực tế không thể phủ nhận", ông Richard Heydarian nói với Philippines Daily Inquirer.


Đầu tháng này, kênh CNBC của Mỹ đưa tin, Trung Quốc đã triển khai lắp đặt hệ thống tên lửa hành trình chống hạm YJ-12 và hệ thống tên lửa phòng không HQ-9B ở trên 3 đảo nhân tạo (bất hợp pháp) ở Xu Bi, Vành Khăn và Chữ Thập.

Tháng Tư vừa qua Trung Quốc cũng đã cài đặt thiết bị tác chiến điện từ gây nhiễu ra đa trên bãi Chữ Thập và Vành Khăn.

Tại một diễn đàn về an ninh hàng hải ở Manila tuần trước, Chuẩn đô đốc Rommel Jude Ong, Chánh thanh tra Hải quân Philippines nói rằng, sớm muộn Trung Quốc cũng sẽ đưa chiến đấu cơ ra các đảo nhân tạo ở Trường Sa.

Ông nói: "Một vài ngày trước, chúng tôi rất ngạc nhiên với các báo cáo rằng Trung Quốc đã triển khai các tên lửa chống hạm và phòng không lên 3 đảo nhân tạo là Xu Bi, Chữ Thập và Vành Khăn.

Tôi cho rằng, bước đi tiếp theo của họ sẽ là triển khai máy bay tấn công hải quân J-11, có bán kính tác chiến 1.500 km.

Nhìn trên bản đồ, máy bay Trung Quốc có thể hoạt động trên toàn bộ phạm vi quốc gia quần đảo Philippines, bao gồm cả các lỗ hổng nghiêm trọng ở Luzon cũng như Palawan"

Để cùng bạn đọc Báo Điện tử Giáo dục Việt Nam trao đổi, đánh giá về những thông tin nói trên, chúng tôi xin được cung cấp một số thông tin liên quan sau đây:


Vùng nhận diện phòng không và lịch sử hình thành 


Vùng nhận dạng phòng không (tiếng Anh: Air Defense Identification Zone, viết tắt tiếng Anh: ADIZ) là vùng bầu trời do một quốc gia tự ấn định ra và đòi hỏi mọi máy bay dân sự xâm nhập vùng này phải nhận dạng, minh định vị trí và chịu sự kiểm soát của quốc gia đó.

Vùng nhận dạng phòng không không đồng nghĩa với không phận, nhưng được coi như khu vực song hành với an ninh quốc phòng.

Để hiểu rõ bản chất vấn đề, chúng ta cần trở lại lịch sử thiết lập các khu vực nhận diện phòng không trên thế giới.

Qua nghiên cứu thực tế, đúng là trên thế giới đã có hơn 20 quốc gia thiết lập ADIZ kể từ khi nổ ra Thế chiến 2.

Để bảo vệ không phận và lãnh thổ của mình, Mỹ và Canada đã thiết lập ADIZ để đề phòng khả năng đối phương tấn công bằng đường không.

Sau này một số quốc gia khác cũng theo thông lệ trên để thiết lập ADIZ của mình và cơ bản mô phỏng theo ADIZ mà Mỹ đã thiết lập.

Mỹ, quốc gia đầu tiên lập ra khu nhận diện phòng không có quy định và giải thích rất rõ, ADIZ không phải không phận lãnh thổ của 1 quốc gia mà là 1 vùng đệm, 1 không gian để nhận diện các phương tiện bay có thể tấn công, đe dọa đến không phận, an ninh của quốc gia đó.

Khi thiết lập ADIZ, Mỹ chỉ nhằm vào các máy bay được xác định là có ý đồ đe dọa an ninh quốc gia của họ chứ không phải tất cả các máy bay hàng không dân dụng đi qua đây.

Mỹ không công nhận quyền của một quốc gia ven biển buộc các máy bay nước ngoài không có ý định xâm nhập không phận quốc gia ven biển đó phải áp dụng thủ tục ADIZ của họ.

Đồng thời, Mỹ cũng không buộc các máy bay nước ngoài không có ý định xâm nhập không phận Mỹ phải áp dụng các thủ tục ADIZ của Mỹ.

Như vậy, bản chất hành động thiết lập ADIZ là nhằm tăng cường theo dõi, phát hiện và cảnh báo sớm các nguy cơ đối với an ninh quốc gia, ý đồ xâm nhập bất hợp pháp không phận.

Sau đó, mới đặt ra các yêu cầu cụ thể đối với các máy bay bay vào khu vực ADIZ chứ không có nghĩa là được quyền đặt ra quy tắc bắt các máy bay nước ngoài phải tuân thủ.

Trong điều kiện chiến tranh, khủng bố, có mối đe dọa an ninh quốc gia, thiết lập ADIZ để phát hiện sớm các mối nguy cơ từ trên không, điều này không có gì ảnh hưởng đến cộng đồng và là việc làm cần thiết để giảm thiểu rủi ro an ninh.

Về mặt pháp lý, luật pháp quốc tế chưa có bất cứ quy định nào về khu nhận diện phòng không của một quốc gia.

Nếu là không phận của các quốc gia có chủ quyền thì đó là khoảng không nằm trên lãnh thổ đất liền, trên nội thủy và lãnh hải, các đảo, quần đảo thuộc chủ quyền của quốc gia đó.

Tại các “không phận chủ quyền” này, quốc gia có quyền yêu cầu máy bay nước khác phải xin phép, báo cáo, tuân thủ các quy định đảm bảo an ninh hàng không và có thể bị ngăn chặn hoặc bị xử lý thích đáng theo quy định của quốc gia đó và phù hợp với Luật hàng không quốc tế hiện hành.

Đối với các khu vực thuộc không phận quốc tế, trong đó có thể bao gồm ADIZ của các nước ven biển, về mặt pháp lý máy bay các nước đi qua đây chỉ cần tuân thủ luật hàng không quốc tế và không nước ven biển nào có quyền ép buộc máy bay nước khác tuân thủ quy định, báo cáo lịch bay, làm theo hướng dẫn như là trong khu vực “không phận chủ quyền” của quốc gia đó vừa phân tích ở trên.

Trong khi đó, vùng nhận dạng phòng không của Trung Quốc ở biển Hoa Đông được Bộ quốc phòng Cộng hòa nhân dân Trung Hoa xác lập trên bầu trời biển Hoa Đông và công bố vào ngày 23/11/2013, bao trùm lên cả quần đảo Senkaku mà Trung Quốc tuyên bố, có tranh chấp chủ quyền với Nhật Bản và không phận của Hàn Quốc.

Khi công bố vùng nhận diện phòng không này, Trung Quốc cho rằng họ công bố thiết lập ADIZ ở Hoa Đông là “hoàn toàn phù hợp thông lệ quốc tế”.

Bắc Kinh giải thích rằng, cho đến nay, thế giới đã có khoảng 20 nước thiết lập ADIZ và họ cũng nhấn mạnh ADIZ ở Hoa Đông chỉ nhằm bảo vệ không phận, chủ quyền, an ninh quốc gia của Trung Quốc trong bối cảnh an ninh khu vực nhiều bất ổn và đe dọa đến an ninh của họ.

Trung Quốc cho rằng động thái này là chỉ nhằm phòng vệ, không ảnh hưởng gì đến hàng không quốc tế.

Đó là những gì Bắc Kinh đã nói.

Tuy nhiên, quy chế ADIZ Trung Quốc ban hành lại buộc tất cả các máy bay đi qua khu vực này phải tuân thủ các quy định của Trung Quốc, tức phía Trung Quốc có quyền buộc các hãng hàng không phải thông báo kế hoạch bay cho phía Trung Quốc.

Trong quá trình cơ động qua ADIZ ở Hoa Đông các máy bay nước ngoài phải mở liên tục phương tiện liên lạc 2 chiều; trả lời các câu hỏi, đáp ứng các yêu cầu, chỉ dẫn từ phía Trung Quốc.

Nếu không tuân thủ quy chế này, Trung Quốc sẽ áp dụng các “biện pháp phòng thủ khẩn cấp”.  

Vì vậy, khi xem xét phạm vi và quy chế của Vùng nhận dạng phòng không mà Trung Quốc đã thiết lập và công bố ở Hoa Đông đã cho thấy tính chất phi pháp của nó. Cụ thể là:

Thứ nhất về phạm vi, nếu theo công bố của Trung Quốc rõ ràng ADIZ Bắc Kinh thiết lập bao trùm toàn bộ biển Hoa Đông trong đó bao gồm nhóm đảo Senkaku hiện do Nhật Bản kiểm soát, tức là khu vực chủ quyền đang có những tranh chấp phức tạp mà dư luận đang quan tâm.

Trung Quốc công bố ADIZ bao trùm khu vực này là một vấn đề.

Thứ 2, ADIZ của Trung Quốc tuyên bố chồng lấn lên ADIZ của Nhật Bản và Hàn Quốc nhưng lại đơn phương áp đặt mà không có sự thỏa thuận bàn bạc với các nước liên quan. Đây là điều chúng ta cần lưu ý và Bắc Kinh cần trả lời rõ ràng trước dư luận.

Thứ 3, ngay trong quy chế ADIZ do Trung Quốc đưa ra, Bắc Kinh muốn giành quyền kiểm soát buộc các hoạt động hàng không nằm ngoài không phận, lãnh thổ Trung Quốc vẫn phải thông báo kế hoạch bay, mở ra đa liên tục, trả lời các câu hỏi và nghe theo chỉ dẫn của Trung Quốc, tức những biện pháp cưỡng chế;

Tôi cho rằng điều này đã vượt quá phạm vi quyền hạn của Trung Quốc và thông lệ quốc tế.

Việc kiểm soát đảm bảo an ninh hàng không, điều hành điều phối các chuyến bay quốc tế do Tổ chức hàng không quốc tế phụ trách.

Vì vậy, tuyên bố của Trung Quốc đã đe dọa đến quyền tự do hàng không hợp pháp của các nước khác trên không phận quốc tế ở Hoa Đông.

Chỉ 3 vấn đề này cũng đã khiến dư luận khu vực và quốc tế phản đối.

Mỹ là nước đầu tiên khởi xướng ra ADIZ và họ hiểu rất rõ nội dung, bản chất của ADIZ, rõ ràng có điều không bình thường trong tuyên bố của Trung Quốc.

Trước đây trong rất nhiều cuộc họp của Tổ chức Hàng không dân dụng quốc tế (ICAO) bàn về phạm vi Vùng thông báo bay (tên tiếng Anh là Flight Information Region, viết tắt là FIR) Trung Quốc liên tục đòi ICAO “chia lại” FIR của họ lấn sang một khoảng không rất rộng bao trùm lên không phận quần đảo Hoàng Sa thuộc chủ quyền của Việt Nam và vùng biển phụ cận đang nằm trong FIR Hồ Chí Minh (trước 1975 tên gọi là FIR Sài Gòn) của Việt Nam.

Mặc dù về mặt quy định của ICAO, FIR chỉ là vùng trời mang tính kỹ thuật đơn thuần chứ không mang ý nghĩa chủ quyền lãnh thổ nhưng nước nào quản lý điều hành FIR nghĩa là họ phải cung cấp các dịch vụ thông báo bay, dịch vụ báo động theo quy định và quản lý mọi hoạt động bay ở vùng trời đó.

Và đương nhiên khi anh đã cung cấp dịch vụ thì đồng nghĩa việc anh được phép thu tiền của những hãng hàng không sử dụng dịch vụ đó để thu về ngoại tệ.

Có thể thấy rõ việc quản lý điều hành FIR có ý nghĩa quan trọng cả về kinh tế lẫn quốc phòng đối với một quốc gia.

Trung Quốc đã nhắm vào điểm này để đòi chia lại FIR ở khu vực Hoàng Sa vốn đã được ICAO phân cho Việt Nam tưởng chừng chỉ thuần túy về mặt kỹ thuật, nhưng thực tế nếu Tổ chức Hàng không dân dụng Quốc tế và các nước liên quan như Việt Nam thừa nhận yêu cầu đó thì đã gián tiếp thừa nhận “chủ quyền” Trung Quốc ở Hoàng Sa.

Chúng ta đã phát hiện ra âm mưu này và đấu tranh liên tục và ICAO quyết định vẫn duy trì Vùng thông báo bay đã công nhận của Việt Nam ở Hoàng Sa và các vùng biển phụ cận.

Thủ đoạn của Trung Quốc áp dụng nhìn bề ngoài thường mang tính chất kĩ thuật, thương mại mà họ vẫn làm trong lĩnh vực hàng không, địa chất, khí tượng….nhưng bản chất lại nhằm để giành lấy sự công nhận mặc nhiên hay vô tình của các tổ chức quốc tế, thậm chí là các nước có liên quan về cái gọi là "chủ quyền" của Trung Quốc ở các khu vực tranh chấp.

Tôi cho rằng đó mới là tính toán, thâm ý của Trung Quốc.

Nếu các quốc gia có liên quan không có thái độ cương quyết và phản ứng dứt khoát với ADIZ ở Hoa Đông sẽ dẫn đến mặc nhiên thừa nhận chủ quyền của Trung Quốc ở không phận phía trên khu vực có tranh chấp trong khi bề mặt nhóm đảo Senkaku do Nhật Bản kiểm soát.

Nếu hàng không Nhật Bản tuân thủ quy chế của Trung Quốc là mặc nhiên thừa nhận “không phận, chủ quyền” của Trung Quốc ở Senkaku.

Trung Quốc đã đánh vào an toàn cho hành khách trên các chuyến bay và hoạt động kinh doanh của các hãng hàng không... rõ ràng là một tính toán hết sức nguy hiểm.

Ngoại trưởng Úc đã triệu kiến  Đại sứ Trung Quốc Mã Triều Húc tới yêu cầu giải thích về cái gọi là khu nhận diện phòng không ở Hoa Đông, một phản ứng mạnh mẽ Bắc Kinh không thể ngờ tới. 

Mỹ, Nhật, Úc, Hàn Quốc thậm chí là đảo Đài Loan đều phản đối, thậm chí bằng cả hành động điều B-52 thách thức quy chế ADIZ của Trung Quốc ở Hoa Đông ngay sau khi Bắc Kinh tuyên bố.

Rõ ràng là tuyên bố của Trung Quốc đã vượt quá thông lệ quốc tế và xâm phạm lợi ích chính đáng của các nước khác.

Phản ứng mạnh mẽ của Mỹ, Nhật Bản và các nước liên quan là hoàn toàn chính xác và không có gì đáng ngạc nhiên. Đó là điều chúng ta phải lưu ý.


Thời điểm nào Trung Quốc sẽ công bố ADIZ ở Biển Đông và ứng phó của chúng ta?


Trên một tinh thần thật sự khách quan và cầu thị, chúng ta không có quyền phê phán những hoạt động mang tính chất phòng thủ chính đáng của Trung Quốc, nhưng chúng ta không chấp nhận các thủ đoạn lợi dụng việc thiết lập ADIZ để xâm hại lợi ích hợp pháp của khu vực và quốc tế.  

Sự kiện Trung Quốc tuyên bố ADIZ ở Hoa Đông, điều cụm tàu sân bay Liêu Ninh xuống Biển Đông….Và, gần đây, đã lên tiếng công khai chủ trương thiết lập ADIZ ở Biển Đông… có thể cho thấy nguy cơ này hoàn toàn có thật và cũng có khả năng sẽ xảy ra.

Bởi vì, đây là 1 mũi tiến công mà Trung Quốc đã từng khai thác để phục vụ cho mục tiêu bảo vệ yêu sách bất hợp pháp của mình.

Tuy nhiên, vào lúc này, thời cơ chưa chín muồi, do Trung Quốc đang gồng mình đối phó với cuộc chiến thương mại Mỹ - Trung và lực lượng quân sự của Mỹ đang được tăng cường tại khu vực châu Á - Thái Bình Dương dưới thời Donal Trump…

Chúng ta đã rất mềm dẻo muốn ngồi lại đàm phán xử lý các tranh chấp một cách êm thấm, không muốn để xảy ra xung đột, đối đầu ở Biển Đông.

Nhưng qua những sự kiện này nếu chúng ta cho rằng, Trung Quốc đã thay đổi và trở nên thiện chí hơn thì cần xem xét lại.

Chính những việc làm của Trung Quốc đã khiến cộng đồng quốc tế nghi ngờ các tuyên bố của Trung Quốc, cái gọi là thiện chí của họ.

Cho dù không muốn nghĩ đến mũi tiến công xâm lược mang tên ADIZ sẽ xảy ra trong Biển Đông, nhưng rõ ràng các động thái vừa qua của Trung Quốc ở Hoa Đông và Biển Đông khiến dư luận không thể không quan ngại về đám mây u ám này sẽ bao phủ lên bầu trời Biển Đông.

Vì vậy theo chúng tôi, chúng ta không thể chủ quan.

Theo chúng tôi, các cơ quan chức năng có liên quan phải tính toán ngay đến các khả năng, kịch bản như những gì đang diễn ra ở Hoa Đông và nghiên cứu các biện pháp đối phó, phản ứng kịp thời, tránh để bị động, lúng túng.

Chúng tôi nghĩ khó có thể tránh được nguy cơ Trung Quốc đơn phương áp đặt ADIZ ở Biển Đông, bởi cách đây không lâu Trung Quốc quy định các vùng cấm đánh cá, quy chế biên phòng ở Biển Đông một cách bất hợp pháp.

Nếu Trung Quốc thành công trong việc áp đặt ADIZ ở Hoa Đông thì chắc chắn họ sẽ tiếp tục làm ở Biển Đông, nếu các quốc gia liên quan và tổ chức hàng không dân dụng quốc tế không đồng lòng lên tiếng phản đối và áp dụng các biện pháp nhằm vô hiệu hóa mũi tiến công xâm lược này.

Tôi cho rằng thời đại hiện nay, việc giữ gìn an ninh hàng hải rất quan trọng, nhưng an ninh hàng không quan trọng không kém, thậm chí là hàng đầu vì đó là nơi dễ bị xâm phạm, dễ uy hiếp chủ quyền quốc gia và an ninh, quốc phòng nhiều nhất.

          What Would It Take To 'Win' The "War On Drugs"?      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Jacob Hornberger via The Future of Freedom Foundation,

After decades of warfare, the federal drug war has become a predictable cycle.

Drug dealer, drug gang, or drug user busted. DEA agents celebrate the bust. Newspaper reporters laud the DEA. Defendants prosecuted, convicted, and sent to jail.

And then?

Then, the cycle repeats itself. Drug dealer, drug gang, or drug user busted. DEA agents celebrate the bust. Newspaper reporters laud the DEA. Defendants prosecuted, convicted, and sent to jail.

And again and again and again. Month after month. Year after year.  Decade after decade. The cycle never stops.

Normally when one wages a war, he strives for victory. But no one ever defines what victory in the drug war would look like. The feds seem satisfied to simply engage in the same cycle, over and over again, into perpetuity.

Some proponents of the drug war say that if only the federal government really cracked down in the war on drugs, the war could be won. But what they fail to recognize is that over the years, the federal government really has cracked down.

The feds adopted mandatory-minimum sentences, which took sentencing discretion out of the hands of federal judges and imposed draconian sentences for drug-law violations.

They enacted asset-forfeiture laws, which enable the DEA to seize people’s money without charging them with any offense.

They bash people’s door down in the middle of the night, violently raiding their homes, oftentimes killing the inhabitants or their pets.

They arbitrarily stop, search, abuse, and humiliate people, especially African-Americans.

In some cases, they have even resorted to planting drugs on people.

None of it has brought victory. The cycle simply continues to repeat itself, over and over again. Drug bust, followed by prosecution, conviction, and incarceration, followed by a new drug bust, followed by prosecution, conviction, and incarceration.

Drug-war proponents might say, “Jacob, the problem is that we haven’t really, really cracked down. If we got the military involved and authorized our soldiers to fight this war like a real war, where they could raid people’s homes whenever they wanted, search whoever they like, and kill anyone suspected of violating drug laws, victory would finally be ours.”

Really?

Why hasn’t drug-war victory been declared in the Philippines? According to Human Rights Watch, the Philippine government has killed more than 12,000 drug suspects in the last two years of drug warfare. No arrests. No trials. No convictions. No incarcerations. Just straight-out killing.

Yet, still no victory! In fact, they continue to wage their war on drugs with even more ferocity. What gives with that? It’s pretty much impossible to crack down more than arbitrarily killing drug-war suspects outright. Doesn’t that imply that if the DEA and the U.S. military were given the same power here in the United States, killing tens of thousands of Americans would still not lead to drug-war victory?

Consider Mexico, where the military has long played an active role in the country’s drug war. According to the Guardian,

It is 11 years since the then president Felipe Calderón launched a militarised crackdown on drug cartels deploying thousands of soldiers and promising an end to the violence and impunity. But the bloodletting continues, the rule of law remains elusive and accusations of human rights abuses by state security forces abound. All the while, Mexico continues to race past a series a grim milestones: more than 200,000 dead and an estimated 30,000 missing, more than 850 clandestine graves unearthed. This year is set to be the country’s bloodiest since the government started releasing crime figures in 1997, with about 27,000 murders in the past 12 months.

Do we really want the federal government to go down Mexico’s road by bringing in the U.S. military to try to win the drug war? Why should we expect different results here?

If the objective of the drug war is stop people from possessing or distributing drugs, that objective has obviously not been achieved despite decades of warfare. Moreover, in the process of trying to achieve that objective, the federal government has unleashed massive death, destruction, ruination of lives, exorbitant spending, and loss of liberty and privacy. In fact, when we look back on this whole thing, the only thing the drug war has really accomplished is jobs for DEA agents, federal prosecutors, federal judges, and, yes, black-market drug dealers.

I say: Let’s just legalize drugs, which would, in one fell swoop, eradicate drug gangs and drug cartels, along with the necessity for DEA agents and federal prosecutors and federal judges whose jobs depend on the drug war. It would also keep drug use and drug abuse in the private sector, including rehabilitation, where they belong.

That would be a genuine victory.

          Interview: Season Seven Opening Night Film for Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema is 'Adulthood'      Cache   Translate Page      

CHICAGO – It’s another opening and another show, as Season Seven of Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema (APUC) starts it’s run of showcase films, starting with South Korea’s “Adulthood” on Wednesday, September 12th, 2018. Director Kim In-seon and lead actress Lee Jae-in of “Adulthood” will appear on behalf of the film at the screening, which begins at 7pm at the AMC River East 21 theatre. For details and tickets, click here.

“Adulthood” is the story of Kyung-Un (Lee Jae-in), a 14-year-old girl who meets her uncle Jae-Min (Um Tae-Goo) for the first time at the funeral of her father (and his brother). The attention the uncle gives her at first is confusing, but his motive was to steal her insurance money to pay off a loan shark. When Kyung-Un finds out, she has no recourse but to join her uncle in a con job, designed to romance and then rip off a lonely pharmacist (Seo Jung-yeon). Somehow, these three souls learn more than they bargained for in this situation, and this emotional film is a simple story of unexpected redemption.

Season Seven of APUC, which runs from September 12th through November 14th, 2018, and will highlight films from South Korea, the Philippines, China, Thailand, India, Hong Kong, Japan, Tibet, Vietnam and Taiwan. The main feature film presentations will occur at the AMC River East 21 in downtown Chicago, with other various locations for special events, in addition to a number of free screenings.

In anticipation of the Season Seven Opening Night of APUC, HollywoodChicago.com spoke to director Kim In-seon and actress Lee Jae-in, and the two women collaborators talked about, through an interpreter, the process of creating the special relationships in the film.

HollywoodChicago.com: Kim, in writing the screenplay and piecing together the story, which of the characters did you most identify with, and how do you think that identity came out in the story?

Kim In-seon: At first, I connected to the character of Jae-Min, the uncle trying to find himself as an adult in his thirties… despite his age, he acted immature, and at that time it felt like me. [laughs] But as I was finishing the film, I was more connected to the younger character of Kyung-Un, because what she was going through was how I felt when I was a teenager, which was a loneliness and a desire to become an adult as quickly as possible.

HollywoodChicago.com: Jae, when you first read the script, what did you immediately understand about your character of Kyung-Un that made you know that you could portray her?

Lee Jae-in: We are of similar age as teenagers, and I understood her feeling of loneliness. All of the expressions of her emotions came through her feeling of being alone, and I knew I could portray that side of her.

HollywoodChicago.com: Kim, one of the underlying stories in the film is the difficulties of South Korean women to trust men. But what difficulty did you most want to portray in the relationship of the pharmacist Jum-Lee to the uncle Jae-Min?

Kim In-seon: More than a general distrust for men, I was focusing on the specific situation that Jum-Lee was facing… she was in her late forties, single and a professional. Her relationship options were limited, and she was finding that the attitude of men she was encountering was not serious. In that process she felt isolated, and it was hard for her to stay open to a possibility of connection.

What made the difference in the way Jae-Min approached her is that he had a daughter [part of the con was that Kyung-Un pretended to be Jae-Min’s daughter], and that is what opened Jum-Lee to the possibility of taking a chance again in that relationship. It was really about trusting her emotions and where she was in life.

HollywoodChicago.com: What part of the process while doing the film did you feel comfortable with your co-star Tae-Goo Um, and what part of his portrayal of the uncle Jae-Min did you most connect to?

Lee Jae-in: When I first met Tae-Goo, it felt awkward, but as we went through the stages of filmmaking he was incredibly nice and very funny. He also taught me a lot about acting, especially in detailed facial expressions.

His personality was so different than the Jae-Min character he was portraying, so I was amazed at times how well he was able to become the role. I believe that between Jae-Min and my character, they were fulfilling the emotional things that each were missing, and filling the void that they felt.

HollywoodChicago.com: Kim, the three main characters got a bit of redemption by the end of the film. Which of the characters do you believe most benefited by this redemption?

Kim In-seon: My intent was not to show any dramatic changes in the lives of those characters, but only a hint of change by the end. For example, Jae-Min slowly came out of his immaturity and started realizing his responsibilities, so there was growth there. With Kyung-Un it was the realization that someone could love and care about her again, which gave he self confidence. I didn’t see much growth in the Jum-Lee character, except to connect with Kyung-Un as a friend.

HollywoodChicago.com: How are women filmmakers treated in South Korea? Do you think there is opportunity there if you make successful films, or do you believe men are given better chances to succeed or try again than women?

Adult3

Kim In-seon: Before I got the opportunity to do this feature film, I started with three short films. At short film festivals in South Korea, the percentage of women filmmakers participating is around 70 percent. But when it comes to making either independent or commercial feature films, it’s almost impossible for women to get an opportunity. And as you said in the question, it is men that are more likely to get a second chance to make a film if the first one doesn’t make money. For women, that second chance doesn’t exist.

The type of films available for women to direct is also very limited. The commercial films are mostly in the thriller and action genre, and those are almost all directed by men. It’s frustrating for me, but the only way to change things within is to keep doing the work and putting it out there.

HollywoodChicago.com: Finally, for both of you. As Jae-Min and Kyung-Un walk down a new road in their relationship, what do you think is the most important things they learned in their journey of coming together?

Kim In-seon: To me, it was about really spending time with a person and getting to know them, and that leads to becoming a better person. Jae-Min and Kyung-Un learn a lot about each other and themselves in the time they spend together, and in that way become better people through that relationship.

Lee Jae-in: The character of Kyung-Un was seriously alone at the beginning of the film, and had learned to adapt to that loneliness. Her and Jae-Min adapted to each other, and for the first time in a long time she depended on someone, and learned to trust a togetherness in a relationship again. The uncle and the niece, in the end, had similar personalities, and I think they’ll continue to develop and cherish those similarities, and continue to be more honest as their lives go on.

Opening Night of Season Seven of the Asian Pop-Up Cinema is “Adulthood” on September 12th, 2018, at the AMC River East 21, 322 East Illinois Street, Chicago. Director Kim In-seon and lead actress Lee Jae-in will make an appearance on behalf of the film. For a complete overview Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema, click here.

          Apple iPhone XR Philippines Price and Release Date Guesstimate, Full Specs, Features      Cache   Translate Page      
American tech giant Apple Inc. has just officially lifted the veil on three new iPhone models for 2018, each having their own key selling points and highlights.

The most "affordable" of the trio is the the Apple iPhone XR, which has become the first ever iPhone to have Dual SIM functionality through one nanoSIM slot and another Digital eSIM slot for network carriers around the world that already support this kind of internal SIM card for smartphones.

Apple iPhone XR, Apple iPhone XR Philippines

Despite being the most budget-friendly model of the bunch, though, the iPhone XR's official suggested retail price in the US still starts at $749 USD, which is by no means cheap.

With current conversion and before taxes, that's around PHP 40,300 here in Philippines; More than twice the price of some popular midrange models in this market like the OPPO F9, Huawei Nova 3i, Pocophone F1, or even Vivo V11, which all have better specs than the iPhone XR in some departments like battery size, amount of RAM, and front camera resolution.

Apple iPhone XR, Apple iPhone XR Philippines

However, I'm sure that that information won't matter much to hardcore Apple fans who buy the latest iPhones not just because of the handsets' technical specifications but also because of how they personally feel when they carry these gadgets.

As I've shared in one interview that I did with Bloomberg Philippines a couple of years ago, Apple is unique in its ability to sell products through intangible marketing, which appeals to consumers' beliefs and emotions.

Apple iPhone XR, Apple iPhone XR Philippines

As tech blogger who does his best to be level-headed in reviewing gadgets, I am just relieved that this model sports a handful of tangible features that will benefit users beyond mere emotional connection.

For one, iPhone XR's mid-frame is crafted from Series 7000 Aluminum which is known for its durability. The glass-sandwich enclosure is also IP67 Splash, Water, and Dust Resistant, which can greatly contribute to the longevity of the device.

Another thing, I bet mobile photography enthusiasts will enjoy using this model's 12 MegaPixel f/1.8 rear camera which is powered by Apple's Neural Engine that improves its imaging performance in various lighting conditions and even enables virtual bokeh effect when shooting portraits.

If you're a power user or an avid gamer, the all-new Hexa-Core Apple A12 Bionic processor with integrated Quad-Core GPU should ensure ultra-smooth and lag-free experience even when running the most resource intensive titles that you can download from Apple App Store.

Apple iPhone XR, Apple iPhone XR Philippines

So what's the worst thing about the Apple iPhone XR? Well, just from looking at its specs-sheet, I'd say that the resolution of the 6.1-inch Liquid Retina Display is quite low -- and this means that it is not that pixel-dense or ultra-clear. Never mind the lack of 3D Touch, I wish that Apple had at least given this model a FullHD+ screen -- but I guess they didn't want iPhone XR to cannibalize on iPhone XS sales.

Anyway, I'm still looking forward to seeing this model in the flesh and to actually playing with it. After all, I'm loving the color options -- especially the Blue and Yellow variants, which look so unique and eye-catching.

Apple iPhone XR will be up for purchase at Apple Stores in more than fifty countries - including our fellow Asian countries Japan, Hong Kong, China, India, Oman, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Taiwan - starting on Friday, October 26, 2018.

If we got the military involved and authorized our soldiers to fight this war like a real war, where they could raid people’s homes whenever they wanted, search whoever they like, and kill anyone suspected of violating drug laws, victory would finally be ours.”

Really?

Why hasn’t drug-war victory been declared in the Philippines? According to Human Rights Watch, the Philippine government has killed more than 12,000 drug suspects in the last two years of drug warfare. No arrests. No trials. No convictions. No incarcerations. Just straight-out killing.

          Strongest typhoon this year closes in on north Philippines      Cache   Translate Page      
MANILA, Philippines – The most powerful typhoon of the season is closing in on the northern Philippines, where officials ordered precautionary evacuations and closures of schools and offices and urged farmers to quickly harvest their crops to reduce damage.

Forecasters said Typhoon Mangkhut, considered as the strongest this year, could hit northern Cagayan province on Saturday. It was located about 500 miles away in the Pacific with sustained winds of 165 mph and gusts of up to 201 mph. It could maintain the strength of a super typhoon when it hits land in the northeastern corner of Luzon Island.

With a massive rain band 560 miles wide, combined with seasonal monsoon rains, the storm could bring heavy to intense rains that could set off landslides and flash floods, state forecaster Meno Mendoza said.

Cagayan Gov. Manuel Mamba said by telephone that northern coastal and island villages in the typhoon's projected path will begin evacuating residents on Thursday ahead of the expected onslaught. He said classes will be suspended and offices, except those involved in rescue and relief work, advised to close on Friday.

In 2016, a super typhoon lashed the southern section of Cagayan, destroying tens of thousands of houses. Mangkhut is blowing from the Pacific and forecast to directly slam the province's northeastern coastal and island municipalities, Mamba said.

"I'm stressing that this one is very different, this is more complicated because of possible storm surges," Mamba said, referring to giant waves whipped inland by a typhoon.

The typhoon is arriving at the start of the rice and corn harvest season in Cagayan, a major agricultural producer, and farmers were scrambling to save what they could of their crops, Mamba said. The Philippines has been trying to cope with rice shortages.

Office of Civil Defense chief Ricardo Jalad said other northern provinces will also start evacuating residents from low-lying areas on Thursday.

"The worst cases are those areas which will be directly hit by strong winds that can topple houses, storm surges and heavy rains that can cause flooding, and there may be landslides in higher areas," Jalad told reporters.

A missile test aboard a navy ship to be attended by President Rodrigo Duterte off northern Bataan province was canceled due to the approaching typhoon.

After leaving the Philippines, the fast-moving storm is expected to blow toward Hong Kong and southern China on Sunday if it maintains its course, forecasters said.

Mangkhut is the 15th storm this year to batter the Philippines, which is hit by about 20 a year and is considered one of the world's most disaster-prone countries. Typhoon Haiyan left more than 7,300 people dead or missing and displaced over 5 million in the central Philippines in 2013.

          Strongest typhoon this year closes in on north Philippines      Cache   Translate Page      

The most powerful typhoon of the season is closing in on the northern Philippines, where officials ordered precautionary evacuations and closures of schools.
          Super Typhoon Mangkhut, more powerful than Hurricane Florence, heads for the Philippines      Cache   Translate Page      

Super Typhoon Mangkhut is the most powerful tropical cyclone in the world, with 170 mph winds, and is set to cross over the Philippines, Hong Kong, and Macau over the next few days.

The Global Disaster and Alert Coordination System said that as many as 43.3 million people could be affected by the storm, which is now causing power outages and flooding in Guam. Mangkhut is expected to sweep across the northern Philippines on Friday as the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane, but will likely weaken before reaching Hong Kong and Macau. The agriculture secretary of the Philippines warned that with the harvest season nearing, Mangkhut could cause up to $25 million in damage to crops on the island of Luzon.

It's a busy storm season in the Atlantic and Pacific. Hurricane Florence, headed for the Carolinas, is a Category 3, while Tropical Storm Barijat is now passing Hong Kong to the south. Tropical Storm Olivia is bringing at least 15 inches of rain to some parts of Hawaii, and Hurricane Helene, a Category 1, is west of Cabo Verde and expected to stay over the open ocean, The Washington Post reports.

          BELA PADILLA, ELLA CRUZ, DONNALYN BARTOLOME LEAD TIKTOK'S 1 MILLION AUDITION IN THE PHILIPPINES      Cache   Translate Page      
TikTok, the world's fastest growing short-form video app, is bringing its global talent search, 1 Million Audition, to the Philippine's from September 7 to September 21, to look for the best Filipino creators online.
Bela Padilla, Ella Cruz, Donnalyn Bartolome will be the challenge leaders to inspire the contestants.
Trendsetters Bela Padilla, Ella Cruz, and Donnalyn Bartolome will act as the ambassadors and lead the Fashion, Talent, and Comedy categories respectively. The hashtags of each category will be as follows:

#1MPHTalent – Ella Cruz: https://instagram.com/p/BnWABYCnnZ0/
#1MPHComedy – Donnalyn Bartolome: https://www.instagram.com/p/BnTSXvWnNx1/
#1MPHFashion – Bela Padilla: https://www.instagram.com/p/BnaVBrhnC68/

Introduced in 2017, TikTok’s 1 Million Audition provides budding artists a platform to showcase their diverse talents and win millions of followers and rewards at the same time. It has been successfully held across Japan, India, Latin America, Europe, and the United States with over one million participants.

For talented Pinoys, the 1 Million Audition can be their gateway to stardom. Through TikTok’s 1 Million Audition, Indian creator Manjul Khattarhas grown his followers to 700,000 in just three months while Korean influencer dancersona has gathered 1.3 million followers on TikTok within two months.

The 1 Million Audition winners will receive prizes of up to Php20,000 each. They will also be invited to the Gala Party on September 29 in Manila where the Top 3 Most Popular Awards on Instagram@tiktok_philippines, Facebook@tiktokphilippinesofficial, and Twitter@TikTokPH will be announced as well.

What’s more exciting is that the three final winners from each category will be invited to the TikTok Gala in Seoul, Korea in October to celebrate and meet other creators from the app’s global community.

The ambassadors, moreover, also shared some words of encouragement and excitement over the search.

“So excited to see Pinoy fashionistas show off their OOTDs on TikTok’s 1 Million Audition. TikTok will definitely change the way they express themselves,” Bela said.

“I love watching funny TikTok videos and I can’t wait to see more from our talented kababayans. I hope they won’t miss this chance to reach their dreams,” Donnalyn added.

“There are always talented people on TikTok! I’m looking forward to discover these talented artists and to help them jumpstart their careers,” Ella also said.

Whether it’s singing, dancing, or playing an instrument, TikTok opens its doors to talented Filipinos to share their talents and to become the next fast-rising superstar.

          Thread: Empire of the Sun:: Rules:: National Status & Surrender questions      Cache   Translate Page      

by Gwal

A couple of questions from our game:

1) Who determines order of surrender during National Status. If multiple countries surrender in the same turn and the order would affect EAM who gets to decide which one goes first?

2) If we have a Commonwealth air unit in a Philippines hex at the time of it's surrender to Japan, this post indicates that it would have to leave, but 13.1 says ". . .Japanese player automatically gains control of all of its on map airfields and ports that are not occupied by Allied units. . ." All Allied ground units are removed and US Air and Naval are forced to EAM, but it seems like Allied air or Naval would stay and maintain Allied control. I might be missing something that specifies how this is handled. Francisco's post from 2016 seems definitive that they are eliminated due to the airfield/port changing possession, but I'm not seeing what exception it's based on from the rules.

          Fueling Florence (and, Concurrently, Eight Other Major Storms): 'BradCast' 9/12/18      Cache   Translate Page      

Guest: Meteorologist Guy 'Climate Guy' Walton; Also: NH Primary results...

On today's BradCast: A multitude of terrifying threats from Hurricane Florence loom large across at least four states in the Southeast, as millions of Americans hunker down or evacuate on the final week of primary elections in the U.S. before the crucial 2018 midterm elections. [Audio link to show follows below.]

First up, after a quick warning to ignore the President of the United State's assertion that the federal government is "totally prepared" for the damage that awaits the still-growing Hurricane Florence (while citing his Administration's response to last year's Hurricane Maria that killed nearly 3,000 citizens in Puerto Rico as "an incredible unsung success"), we head to New Hampshire for the penultimate federal primaries of the season. (Rhode Island voted today and New York holds state and local primaries on Thursday.)

On Tuesday, voters in the Granite State went to the polls with, happily, few problems reported so far, beyond the larger than anticipated turnout, particularly in a number of the state's many college towns. That may signal good news for Democrats, at least until the state GOP's new law making it much harder for college students to register to vote kicks in in 2019 (unless its blocked by courts before then). We fill you in on the noteworthy reported results today, including the single mom, Molly Kelly, who won the Democratic primary for Governor, the openly gay man, Chris Pappas, who defeated 10 other Democrats (including Bernie Sanders' son) to win the U.S. House nomination in one of the swingiest swing districts in the country, and 27-year old refugee from Afghanistan, Safiya Wazir, who unseated a four-term incumbent Democrat and appears poised to become a NH state Representative just 9 years after leaving her war-torn country for a better life in these United States.

Then, all eyes (pun intended) on the disturbing amount of cyclonic activity churning across the globe -- not just off the Eastern U.S. seaboard -- at the peak of hurricane season. The "monster" storm, Hurricane Florence grew in size today, as its movement continues to slow, and as it's trajectory appears to have taken a slight turn toward the southwest. The storm's brutal winds, surging waters and threat of days of unforgiving rainfall, now pose a grave threat to some 10 million residents of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and, as of Wednesday's latest predictions, Georgia.

But, while Florence may be the fiercest and most immediate threat to Americans, it's hardly the only storm worth keep an eye on, as nine -- count 'em -- nine storms across the globe are now either hurricanes, typhoons, tropical storms or depressions, or otherwise threatening to become one of the above at any moment. Among the most immediate non-Florence threats are Tropical Storm Olivia, slamming into Hawaii today (just two weeks or so following Hurricane Lane's record 50 inches of rainfall dumped on some parts of the island), Category 5 Typhoon Mangkhut, which just slammed Guam and now heads toward The Philippines and Hong Kong, and another storm currently brewing in the record warm Gulf of Mexico waters that could visit Texas and/or Louisiana by this weekend, even as Florence wreaks its own separate havoc on the East Coast. (Is Trump's FEMA "totally prepared" for all of that also?)

According to our guest today, 30-year veteran Weather Channel meteorologist, "Climate Guy" GUY WALTON this amount of cyclonic activity is not normal, and much of it is attributable to warming waters and highly unusual weather patterns in a climate-changed world.

"As you get more heat, you'll get more storms, and that's exactly what we're seeing," says Walton who points to sub-tropical storm Joyce, which was just named today, taking its place along with Hurricanes Helene and Isaac behind Florence in the Atlantic. "That will make four in the Atlantic basin alone. And if you look at the Gulf of Mexico, there could be a potential fifth, I guess named Kirk. If we have five simultaneous named systems in the Atlantic basin, that would be a record."

As to Florence, he warns: "Meteorologically, the greatest concern is the slowing of the storm and stalling right off the Carolina coast, right around Wilmington, and then very, very slowly moving south or southwest back towards Charleston. If that's the case, you could have winds and waves for many, many hours, if not for two or three days, just lashing at the shore. And that could produce more damage than, say, a Category 4 Hugo," in 1989, which killed 27 in South Carolina, left nearly 100,000 homeless and wreaked nearly $10 billion in damage.

"These things usually move northeast, they don't move southwest or west. If it does, that would be highly unusual. And devastating," he tells me.

Walton explains how climate change-fueled weather patterns are resulting in slower moving storms causing much more rainfall and flooding in recent years and why he believes some broadcast meteorologists -- versus climatologists -- are still either climate deniers or simply fail to connect the dots of increasingly extreme weather to global warming. He also discusses his upcoming children's book on climate, with Nick Walker, The World of Thermo: Thermometer Rising.

Finally today, we bounce off of Will Bunch at the Philadelphia Daily News today with a few thoughts on talking about the rapidly increasing dangers of climate change, even while a major storm imperils millions of American citizens. As Bunch observes, many of them live in southern states with political leadership that has ill-served their residents by lying to them about climate change science over a shameful number of years, even as they now find themselves at the center of some of its most threatening and deadly effects...

World War II

World War II was the bloodiest war in human history. Over 50 million human beings died in it. It has been studied massively by scholars among from across the spectrum of humanity. Also, it is a war that made us aware of the sacrifice of heroes who defeated Nazism. Like always, we memorize the victims of the evil Holocaust. World War II existed in many phases like the coming of war, the rise of fascist and authoritarian empires, the war itself, and the aftermath of World War II. World War II is directly related to WWI and the Great Depression. The event of WWI ended with many nations suffering economic recessions. Later, dictatorships would rise up that exploited the suffering of peoples in order for these authoritarian rulers to promote racism, bigotry, xenophobia, and ultimately genocide against innocent human beings. By November 1918, Germany surrendered to the Allied forces in ending World War One. The peace agreement was formed in 1919 with delegates from 27 nations. Most of the decisions in that agreement were established by America, France, and Great Britain. Germany and Russia weren’t there. The Treaty of Versailles was hated by Germany since it forced Germany to pay monumental reparations for its role in WWI. Italy and Japan wanted more from the deal too. Wilson thought that this agreement would end wars worldwide, but it didn’t. The 1920’s saw many countries move into democracy and freedom. Other nations came into the opposite direction in embracing dictatorships and totalitarianism. Totalitarianism means that a single party or one solitary leader controls every economic, social, and cultural aspects of people in one country. Totalitarianism would spread massively in the world by the 20th century. The 1917 Russian Revolution led Stalin to take power. Ironically, Lenin and especially Trotsky were critics of Stalin because of his totalitarian tendencies and his reckless actions. So, Joseph Stalin took power after the Russian civil war. That brutal civil war caused starvation, famine, and the deaths of millions of Russians. Lenin, before he died, moderated some of his economic policies.

By 1924, Stalin took over the Communist Party in Russia. Stalin was cruel, a murderer, and a tyrant. He regularly allowed the murder of his rivals and even fellow Communists who disagreed with him. He grew the industrial power of many farms. His Great Terror program murdered Communists who opposed him in the 1930’s. About one million people were imprisoned. The purge eliminated most of the leading officers of the Red Army plus others. Stalin promoted propaganda to maintain his vicious rule. He also violated religious freedom by destroying churches and suppressing religious expression throughout the Soviet Union. Stalin went so far that even to this day; many people falsely view every Communist and every socialist as equivalent to Stalin. Stalin ironically did more to slander socialism than any reactionary extremist could ever do.  Italian totalitarianism rose after Italy being a victor of WWI. Ironically, Italy was once part of the Allied forces during WWI. Italy didn’t get lands on the Adriatic coast that it wanted. Italy experienced a depression after WWI as well.

Veterans in Italy had trouble to find work. The communist party was growing and the government had trouble in trying to adequately handle economic issues. Later, Benito Mussolini rose up in political power. He was once more liberal and then became a dedicated fascist. By 1919, Mussolini created the Fasci di Combattimento or the Fascist Party. This was a far right wing group that promoted nationalism and wanted to control Italy. He had his followers. They were the Black shirts. These criminals fought communists and socialists in the streets of Italy. Italian King Victor Emmanuel III feared revolution. So, he asked Mussolini to form a new government. Benito was called Il Duce or the leader. Benito controlled the government, the army, etc. after years of conflict. He later ended political parties. He controlled the press. He formed a secret police. He promoted brainwashing involving youth groups and Mussolini opposed strikes. He hated liberalism and socialism. Fascism was spreading like a cancer in the world.

The Further Rise of Fascism

For a time before the rise of Hitler and after World War One, Germany was a democracy. This was the Weimar Republic which was formed in the German town in Weimar.  It suffered struggles because of the economic problems in 1920’s Germany. High inflation and huge economic troubles caused the Weimar Republic to be on the brink of collapse. By the 1930’s, the Great Depression was global and further harmed the Weimar Republic.  Socialist groups were in existence desiring change. Also, antidemocratic far right groups were in existence like the National Socialist German Workers’ Party or the Nazi Party. They threatened the republic. The Nazis were not socialists. They hated socialism, communism, and other beliefs that promoted workers’ rights and class interests. Socialism believes in class struggle and racial equality while the Nazis believed in white supremacy and racism. Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi Party. Hitler was the son of an Austrian civil servant. Hitler also was a decorated World War I soldier and a failed artist. He was near madness and he was completely evil. He joined the small Nazi Party after the war and ruled it later on. He was in prison because his party tried to cause a rebellion in an attempt to overthrow the Weimar Republic. His book that he wrote in prison was entitled, Mein Kampf or My Struggle. It scapegoated Jewish people, socialists, communists, etc. for the economic problems in Germany. He was very anti-Semitic and he hated Jewish people greatly. Anti-Semitism has been in Europe for centuries and Hitler promoted pseudo-scientific theories as a means to proclaim his racist ideologies. Mein Kampf was a national bestseller in Germany. This book wanted Nazis to have global domination and the extermination of Jewish people plainly speaking. The book falsely assumed that black people were inferior, which is a lie. Germany by the 1930’s had unemployment, hunger, homelessness, and economic collapse. The Nazis gained control by the Germany government by January 1933.

By that time, the president of the Weimar Republic appointed Hitler as chancellor of Germany. Hitler was later President and increased his power massively. Hitler made his powers unchecked by the German parliament or the Reichstag. In 1935, the Weimar Republic’s institutions were silenced. Hitler was the sole ruler of Germany. Hitler was a totalitarian like Mussolini and France. Hitler formed a secret police that crushed dissent. The state controlled press the praised him. He promoted Hitler Youth and the League of German Girls to indoctrinate the youth with Nazi ideas. By the late 1930’s, Hitler used rearmament and public works projects. The Germans cheered for him at Nazi rallies. He attacked Jewish people, communists, and socialists. Many Jewish people suffered abuse, discrimination, and murder by the Nazis and their supporters as well. Japan once saw democracy grow in the 1920’s. There were trade unions, men voting, and other parties formed. This ended with the Great Depression. By the 1930’s, Japan moved into a more militaristic direction. Japan had a constitutional monarchy ruled by one emperor. Japan used its military to attack Manchuria in 1931. They moved a more new regime called Manchukuo in Manchuria. They gained more natural resources in Asia by invasion. They also invaded China to steal Chinese railroads and coastal resources. They also conquered Nanjing where Japanese soldiers murder more than 200,000 Chinese people and many women were raped (called the Rape of Nanjing). Militarism spread in Italy, Germany, and Japan.

The League of Nations was very weak by America refusing to join it. The League of Nations had no army, no navy, and no power to enforce its proclamations. Hitler and Mussolini harmed societies. Germany’s economy grew from 1933 to 1936. He or Hitler wanted all Germanic peoples to be united in one Reich or state. He wanted to have Lebensraum or living space for Germanic peoples. He sent German troops to the Rhineland by 1936 and the League of Nations didn’t respond to stop him. Mussolini invaded Ethiopia in 1935, which was an independent African nation. Haile Selassie or the leader of Ethiopia wanted the League of Nations to respond and help them, but the League of Nations refused to do so. Ethiopia was conquered until years later when Ethiopia defeated the Italian invaders. Fascists fought in the Spanish Civil War. It lasted from 1936 to 1939. It was about the fascist nationalists fighting against Spain’s democratic Republican government. Hitler and Mussolini aided Franco and the Spanish fascists during the civil war. General Francisco Franco tested his military technology in the war. The Soviet Union aided the Republican forces. France, Britain, and the United States remained on the sidelines mostly (except for some Americans and other Westerners volunteering to join the Republican cause). The Fascists won the Spanish civil war unfortunately.

Isolationism vs. Interventionism

By the 1930’s, France and Britain wanted appeasement in dealing with the aggressive, fascist nations of Nazi Germany, etc. This wanted to make concessions to prevent enemy nations from going forward with all-out war and maintain peace. This policy didn’t work as the fascist leaders would be bolder to try to conquer more lands unjustly. Some appeasers viewed World War I as so bloody that they wanted peace at any cost. Some believed that the Soviet Union was more of a threat than Germany or Italy. Franklin Delano Roosevelt wanted a Good Neighbor policy with Latin America. He improved relations with the Soviet Union. Back then, at first, he didn’t take a forceful line against Germany aggression. He wanted to focus on its American problems and later embraced isolationism. FDR would later reject isolationism. Hitler in the spring of 1938 conquered Austria. He formed the Anschluss in Austria. He conquered Sudenteland in the fall of 1938. That region of western Czechoslovakia was many ethnic Germans living there. Britain and France appeased Nazi Germany during the Munich Conference. Hitler and British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain plus French premier Edouard Daladier allowed Hitler to rule Sudetenland in order to try to get peace. Chamberlain came to London and praised the Munich Pact. He was wrong as war would occur 11 months later.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt later condemned aggression in Asia and he did little to stop it. There was the 1937 attack on China. It shocked Americans and the rape of Nanjing would come in December of 1937. Japan attacked with no declaration of war. China experienced terrorism by Japan forces among its cities like in Shanghai and Nanjing. 3 American sailors were killed and the United States gunboat Panay on the Chang River was sank. FDR criticized Japan’s aggression in a speech in Chicago on October 5, 1937. He condemned Japanese attacks on civilian populations. He also said that no part of the war is truly isolated form the world. He wanted an alliance of nations to promote peace against aggression. He was criticized by many for his interventionist stance. Japan continued to invade more territories. France and Britain couldn’t stop Hitler’s aggression. Hitler conquered all of Czechoslovakia into German hands. This alarmed France and Britain. They started to prepare plans for a defensive measure against the Nazis. France and Britain said that if Nazi invaded other territories, then war would transpire. Britain and France signed an agreement with Poland aiding them if Hitler invaded Poland. Hitler wanted the Soviet Union to be a buffer against Poland. So, he or Adolf Hitler would not fight 2 fronts in a war.

That is why Germany signed the Nazi-Soviet Nonaggression Pact with the Soviets on August 23, 1939. They promised to not attack each other. They also agreed to invade and divide up Poland. This aggressive agreement shocked the world. It was one of the biggest mistakes of the Soviet Union. During the early mornings of September 1, 1939, Nazi Germany invaded Poland with a blitzkrieg strike. Fast moving tanks and soldiers conquered Poland. The Soviet Union invaded Poland from the east on September 17, 1939. France and Britain did nothing to help Poland. Poland was soon defeated by the end of September. World War II started with the Nazi invasion of Poland. The Axis Powers were Germany, Italy, Japan, and other nations. The Allies included Britain, France, and later other countries like America, China, plus the Soviet Union. During the spring of 1940, Germany invaded Denmark and Norway on April 9, 1940. By May 10, he used his blitzkrieg forces into the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. His army was fast and powerful. Laster, he fought France. There was the Maginot Line and other areas. In May 1940, Germany moved into the Ardennes and British forces escaped form Dunkirk. Soon, France was defeated and conquered. It took only 35 days for Hitler to rule over France. The Nazis marched in Paris.

Winston Churchill gave speeches to Parliament and other places in England to fight the Nazi threat. He said on June 4, 1940 that he would fight everywhere against the Nazis and he won’t surrender. He rallied the British nation. They prepared for battles. Soon, Hitler invaded Britain via Operation Sea Lion. He or Hitler wanted the German air force of the Luftwaffe to bomb the British Royal Air Force. He wanted to control the British skies. The air battle continued between England and the Nazis. The Nazis attacked on July of 1940 starting the Battle of Britain. Almost 1,000 British planes were lost. More than 1,700 Nazi planes were lost. The Blitz included the Nazis destroying civilian infrastructure in Britain. Churches, homes, factories, schools, and other areas were bombed. Many British people lived in subways to escape the bombing campaign from Germany. Later, Hitler halted invasion attempts and the British were victorious. While this was going on, Winston Churchill wanted America to ally with him in fighting the Nazis. Many viewed this war as a fight for democracy globally. Nazis threatened human freedoms worldwide and that’s true.

Back then, America was mostly isolationist. President Roosevelt agreed with Churchill that the Nazi threat was real, but FDR knew that most Americans were opposed to U.S. intervention. The Great Depression was just ending. Many Americans wanted to focus on domestic affairs. The isolationist movement grew after the Nye Committee (named after Congressman Gerald Nye of South Dakota) saying that corporate interests benefited from World War One. Congress even passed the Neutrality Acts of 1935, 1936, and 1937. These laws used restrictions on American trade during the time of war. One example of this policy was Americans were forbidden to sail on ships owned by belligerents or nations at war. Americans were banned from making loans to belligerents or selling them arms and munitions. These laws didn’t make a distinction between aggressors like Nazis and Italy and victims like Poland or Great Britain and France. The interventionists wanted the support of America to giave great aid to the Allied cause.

Image result for the neutrality acts

Roosevelt was angry at the limitations of the Neutrality Acts. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was anti-Nazi and promoted democracies. Congress passed the Neutrality Act of 1939. This act was different in that it makes it legal to have a cash and carry policy. This allowed belligerent nations to buy goods and arms in the United States if they paid cash and carried the merchandise on their own ships. The British navy controlled the seas. This policy allowed America to aid the British economically. Some Americans didn’t like Roosevelt’s pro-Allies stance. These people wanted isolation and neutrality even in the midst of millions of Jewish people dying by the Holocaust. Isolationists and interventionists debated each other greatly in 1940 and 1941. This came when Britain was alone in Europe fighting the Nazis. Some interventionists wanted to aid the British as a way to keep America out of the war militarily. One group promoting this view was the Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies. Isolationists wanted neutrality. They wanted no funding of Allies since they believed that it would ultimately cause war against the Axis. Many of the isolationists were indeed racists and pro-Nazis.  The America First Committee was an isolationist group. Charles Lindbergh was one leading isolationist who condemned the Soviet Union and Japan while not massively criticizing the Axis Powers back then (until Pearl Harbor). The American First Committee had rallies nationwide. American journalist Edward R. Murrow reported news during the Battle of Britain. He exposed the fact that the Nazis were bombing civilian targets. This motivated interventionists to continue in the fight to defend democracy. Germany, Italy, and Japan had the Tripartite Pact in September of 1940. This agreement wanted each nation to defend each other in case they were attacked by another power.

Congress passed the Selective Service Act. This was a peacetime draft. It gave military training of 1.3 million troops and 800,000 reserve troops every year. Also, President Roosevelt aided Great Britain more. He gave 50 WWI era battleships in eight British defense bases. He did this without the consent of Congress as it was an emergency in his mind. FDR soon was elected for an unprecedented third time against Republican nominee Wendell L. Willkie of Indiana. Willkie accused FDR of not handling economic and foreign policy affairs the right way. Yet, most Americans wanted FDR to maintain the course of American society. Once re-elected, President Franklin Roosevelt supported Britain even more. FDR was short on funds from the cash and carry goods program. FDR addressed Congress on January 6, 1941.  He spoke of the four freedoms. They were the freedom of speech, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want, and the freedom from fear. These freedoms were threatened by the Nazi and Japanese militarism. Roosevelt wanted America to aid the Allies in order to stop the Nazi empire. Roosevelt wanted to promote America as the “great arsenal for democracy.” Britain wanted help and America gave the UK help. In March of 1941, Congress passed the Lend-Lease Act. It was numbered 1776 after the big debate among isolationists and interventionists. The act gave Roosevelt the power to send and lease plus lend resources to allies in defense of America. By 1945, America sent more than $40 billion of Lend-Lease aid to the Allies plus to the Soviet Union. It was an act of economic war against the Nazis and the rest of the Axis Powers.

The historic Atlantic Charter promoted an alliance among Great Britain and America. It occurred on August of 1941. This was when President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill met secretly on a warship of the coast of Newfoundland. They walked about the British response in the world. They also wanted to talk about the future after the war ended and after Hitler was defeated. Both of them signed the Atlantic Charter, which promoted national self-determination and an international system of general security. Roosevelt was more apt to oppose colonialism while Churchill is well known to have supported colonialism including the concept of the British Empire. Hitler knew of these things. He knew America was funding the Allies. So, he responded. American ships escorted arms shipments to Iceland and the British picked them up and sent them to England. By the fall of 1941, Hitler used German U-boats of submarines to attack American ships. Many U-boats shot at the USS Greer, hit the USS Kearny, and the USS Rueben James. Over 100 sailors were killed by these acts. Many Americans were angered. This was close to America declaring war on Germany. America by this time was a neutral nation, but that would change. FDR ordered the Navy to attack German U-boats on sights. By June 1941, the Nazis declared war on the Soviet Union via Operation Barbarossa. This was his greatest mistake since the Soviet Union would mobilize its factories and army to help end the Nazis. The Soviets used millions of its people to organize factories, soldiers, and other resources to respond plus defeat Nazi Germany. By November of 1941, America would be closer to have involvement in World War Two militarily.

America Enters the War

America came into World War II after Japan’s attack in America. It started by December of 1941. Japan and America were once allies during WWI. Later, things have changed. Japan expanded its militarist empire throughout Asia and the Pacific region. America had forces in Guam and the Philippines. Japan considered this reality a threat to its acquiring of natural resources. Yet, Japan still traded with America. The U.S. supplied Japan with oil and other resources too. Japan took over China and Vietnam (which was called Indo-China back then). President Roosevelt wanted this expansion to end. July 1940 was the time when FDR placed an embargo on naval and aviation supplies to Japan. These supplies included oil, iron ore, fuel, steel, and rubber. FDR made a bigger embargo after the Tripartite Pact was made in 1940. Japanese expansion slowed down. Yet, Japan continued to conquer more territories. General Hideki Tojo was the new Japanese prime minister in 1941. He was called the razor for his sharp mind. He wanted military expansion and keep America neutral. In the summer of 1941, both America and Japan were in serious negotiations in order to end disagreements. Japan wanted to expand while American leaders were opposed to this goal. Japan’s final demands were rejected by U.S. Secretary of State Cordell Hull in 1941.Tojo tried a final peace initiative, but failed. Tojo decided on fighting America via war. During the beginning of December, Japan would strike America in Hawaii. Japanese diplomats were in D.C. while Japanese ships headed for Pearl Harbor. Pearl Harbor had a major amount of U.S. naval ships. Tojo sent Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo to command the attack. He had 6 aircraft carriers, 360 airplanes, and many battleships plus cruisers. There were submarines there too. Japanese wanted a surprise attack in order to end American military forces in the Pacific. Japan wanted to expand into new territories to gain resources.


The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was brutal. American forces were surprised by the attacks. The USS Arizona was destroyed. The USS Arizona was blown up. Nearly 2,500 people were killed. 8 battleships were severely damaged, 3 destroyed left unusable, and 3 light cruisers were damaged. 160 aircraft were destroyed and 128 more were damaged. The U.S. battle fleet was out of commission for almost six months. The Japanese had access to get new raw materials in new territories. Much of the  U.S. aircraft carriers were out to sea in that time. The USS Arizona, the USS Oklahoma, and the USS Utah suffered harsh damage. Nagumo canceled a third wave of bombers. He came back home since he didn’t wanted an American counterstrike. The American Pacific Fleet would recover. As news about Pearl Harbor spread in America, FDR addressed Congress. He promoted unity to fight the Japanese. Nothing was the same. Most Americans soon desired to declare war. The Soviet Union now was in the Allied cause. Political infighting ended between isolationists and interventionists. The only people who opposed involvement in the war were pacifists, isolationists, and others. President Roosevelt gave a speech to promote the declaration of war. Congress supported the declaration of war in the House 388 to 1 and in the Senate unanimously. Later, Japan, Germany, and Italy declared war on America. Democrats and Republicans were in the war effort. Patriotism increased. Many Americans mobilized for the war effort. Some were in the military, some joined other organizations, and some funded the Red Cross. 16 million Americans joined the military in the war. The U.S. Army grew from about 1.4 million to 3 million people. The Navy grew from under 300,000 to more than 600,000 people.

Americans of every ethnicity and sex were involved in World War II. 300,000 Mexican Americans and 25,000 Native Americans were in integrated units. Nearly one million African Americans joined the military in mostly segregated units. They first worked in limited roles at first. Later, African Americans saw more active combat and served in the white combat units in some cases. This came after causalities mounted. Over 350,000 women served in World War II in a diversity of roles. In 1941, Congresswoman Edith Nourse Rogers introduced a bill formed the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps which would change into the WAC or the Women’s Army Corps in 1943. The WAC allowed women clerical workers, truck drivers, instructors, and lab technicians to work for the United States Army. Over 150,000 women served in the WAC. 15,000 women served overseas. 600 women received medals for their service. The Army Nurse Corps had 57,000 nurses. These nurses were in danger from the Axis in Europe and in the Pacific. Thousands of more women were in the Navy and Coast Guard auxiliaries. Industry would mobilize too. Roosevelt inspired American production of industry to be used in the war. The War Production Board or the WPB oversaw the conversion of peacetime industry into a war industry. Many agencies made materials to promote resources for the war. Civilian goods were regulated. Organized labor negotiated with the government too. All of these things were controlled with the help of the OWM or the Office of War Mobilization. Defense spending massively ended the Great Depression.

That spending was government money which proves the notion that government intervention can end recessions and depressions. A job came for every worker who wanted one. Production for military supplies increased. Henry Ford produced for America. American made production much more than Axis nations combined by 1944. American production was key in causing the Allied victory of World War II.

After Pearl Harbor, Japan moved as quickly as possible in the Pacific in order for them to control areas before a major American response. In December 1941, Douglas MacArthur struggled to secure the Philippines. The Philippines had little support. Japan destroyed half of the Army’s fighter planes in the region. Japan quickly controlled Guam. They also took Hong Kong and Wake Island. Japan attacked the Philippines by December 22, 1941. MacArthur used his forces to try to stop the Japanese. Yet, the Japanese had bigger numbers, so MacArthur and his forces were forced to retreat. The U.S. left Manila to the Bataan peninsula. They dug in for a siege on Corregidor. Americans suffered heavily and many had low rations. MacArthur left into Australia via evacuation by orders from the U.S. government. Other Americans remained behind. They held out until May of 1942. This was when 75,000 troops surrendered. They were taken as POWs to march 55 miles to the Bataan peninsula to go into a railway. They were forced to march 8 more miles. More than 7,000 Americans and Filipino troops died during the Bataan Death March. Japanese forces continued to get more lands in the Pacific. They got oil and rubber plies in the Southeast Asian region. By the summer of 1942, Japan thought about dominating the Indian Ocean, Australia, New Zealand, and the central Pacific. America had to act quickly to prevent that from happening.

FDR led a response against Japan. This was the Doolittle Raid. It involved a nighttime bombing raid from the USS Hornet aircraft carrier. It was led by Colonel James Doolittle. Doolittle led the raid of 16 B-25 bombings to attack Tokyo. The raid killed 50 Japanese people and damaged 100 buildings. The pilot flew to China where they crash landed. The Doolittle Raid was a small military gain, but it gave Americans more confidence. The Battle of Coral Sea was used to fight Japan. In May of 1942, Japanese moved to take Port Moresby in New Guinea. The Japanese wanted to attack Australia later on. They also wanted to protect its military bases at Rabual, New Guinea. America sent 2 aircraft carriers. They were the USS Lexington and the USS Yorktown along with support vessels to attack the Japanese forces. On May 7-8, 1948, American and Japanese forces fought each other via aircraft. The battle was a draw, but it further gave Americans forces confidence to continue. Aircraft carriers and planes were key weapons in WWII. Japan no longer attacked New Guinea in the future. 1942 saw the Allied response against the Axis Powers to exist in a higher level.

The Allies Winning

June 1942 was a time of the Allied forces were still responding and fighting the Axis Powers. The Axis Powers never had a long term strategy in their goals. Hitler wanted to rule Europe and murder Jewish people, Communists, socialists, plus non-white Germanic peoples. Mussolini wanted an empire from Italy to East Africa. Tojo wanted to dominate Western Pacific areas and Asia. The Allied forces had a more unified purpose. Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin wanted Nazi Germany defeated. America created tons of materials for the Allies, but the Allies fought Nazi U-Boats in order for the Allies to carry those supplies to the UK, the Soviet Union, and other Allied forces. German U-Boats sank more than 3,500 merchant ships and murdered thousands of Allied seamen in the Atlantic and Caribbean waters. By mid-1943, the Allied forces used radar to track and destroy German U-Boats. Long range bombers defeated many U-boats too. Germany attacked Russia in 1941. The Nazis send one army north to Leningrad and a second one east toward Moscow. They also had a third group going south to Stalingrad. The Nazis were deep in the Soviet Union. Millions of Soviet soldiers and civilians were killed. The Soviet resistance and the Russian winter ended the Nazi advance. Hitler also wanted to capture Stalingrad in order to get the rich oil fields of the Caucasus Mountains. The battle of Stalingrad was long and harsh. German troops had house by house fights. The Soviet troops counterattacked. The Nazis were trapped. Hitler resisted defeat at first. The remaining German troops surrendered on January 31, 1943. The battle of Stalingrad was a turning point in the war. It was the end of the Hitler advance in the east. Hitler never could dominate Europe. Nazi armies were in retreat and came back toward Germany. The Soviet Union was now in the offensive going westward into Berlin.

There was World War II battles in North Africa too. In the deserts and mountains of North Africa, Germany and Britain fought each other for territories. The British were fighting the Germans and the Italians since 1940. The Allied forces wanted North Africa. Stalin wanted America and Britain to fight the Nazis in France in order to cause a second European front (plus give Stalin more freedom to fight). FDR and Churchill wanted to go into North Africa at first instead. Both thought that they needed more time to go into France from the English Channel. FDR and Churchill wanted to get North Africa, so they could go into Italy. By October of 1942, the British won a major victory at El Alamein in Egypt. The British moved westward. Allied troops landed in Morocco and Algeria and started to move east toward key German position. The Allied invasion of North Africa was started by General Dwight Eisenhower, who was an American. German general Erwin Rommel on February of 1943 led his Afrika Korps against the Americans at the Kasserine Pass in Tunisia. He was called the Desert Fox. Rommel broke through the American lines. He wanted to go to the Allied supply base at Tebessa in Algeria. American soldiers stopped the Rommel assault. Rommel retreated after he lacked the supplies to carry onward. The Kasserine Pass victory inspired Americans. They or the Allies wanted aggressive officers and troops who were trained at desert fighting. Eisenhower put the American forces in North Africa under the command of George S. Patton Jr. He was a tank commander and an expert strategist. Patton’s forces went east. They had confidence. At the same time, the British forces went westward from Egypt. They trapped the Axis armies. The Nazis decreased in power at Tunisia. Rommel escaped and his army didn’t win. By May of 1943, German and Italian forces surrendered with about 240,000 troops.

By 1943, the Nazis were on the defensive. January of 1943 was the time when Roosevelt and Churchill met at Casablanca, Morocco to plan their next moves. They decided to bomb Germany and invade Italy. FDR wanted the Allies to only accept unconditional surrender. FDR didn’t want Hitler, Mussolini, or Tojo to have some negotiated peace. FDR wanted complete victory. The Allied forces invaded Italy. First, they came to Sicily since it had little U-Boats and it was an island. By July 1943, British and American armies came into Sicily. Eisenhower commanded the joint American-British forces to strike. The Axis escaped into the mainland of Italy. The 38 day campaign caused the Allies to control the western Mediterranean. It paved the way for the invasion of the Italian mainland. It also ended the rule of Benito Mussolini years later. Italy surrendered on September 3, 1943. 5 weeks later, Italy declared war on Germany. Hitler didn’t give up on Italy yet. Mussolini was rescued by a German airborne force from a mountaintop fortress. Hitler made him a puppet leader of northern Italy. In southern Italy, the Nazis fought against the Allies.

The invasion of Italy by the Allies wasn’t easy. Italy had massive mountains, heavy rains, and tough terrain. Allied forces would not completely defeat the Axis until 1944, but the Allied force would have ma

          PHILBEX Cebu 2018 Opened its Doors to a Sustainable Future      Cache   Translate Page      

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Now on its 16th year, PHILBEX Cebu affirms its commitment to the lead the region’s construction and design industry into a future of sustainability and progressive innovation with another ground breaking instalment. Officially opening its doors last September 13 at the SM City Cebu Trade Hall, the grand launch for the highly-anticipated trade event was well-attended by select VIP personalities from the government as well as representatives from the construction and design trade.

Among those who graced the momentous occasion and took part in the ribbon-cutting ceremony were,
Mr. Mario Montejo, Mr. Miguel Antonio Magpale, Idr. Ryan James Mantuhac, Dr. Herbert Buot and Ms. Herley Ann Herrera with Worldbex Services International’s Joseph L. Ang, Levi Ang, Archt. Francisco Flameño, Jr.,Rene Ramos and Jill Aithnie Ang.

Towards a self-sustaining future

Led by theme of “Shaping Innovations Toward Sustainability”, this year’s PHILBEX Cebu aims to unite architects, engineers, interior designers, industry professionals, and enthusiasts in its endeavor to promote the value of ingenuity and innovation in shaping the industry into one that is self-sustaining and adaptive to the ever-evolving demands of the times. Furthermore, as PHILBEX Cebu moves closer to its Silver Anniversary, this year’s theme also aligns itself with the organization’s core thrust of leading the region’s construction and design trade at the forefront of global ascendance.

Unsurprisingly, the industry has eagerly expressed its trust and full support for the goals and aspirations of PHILBEX Cebu 2018 as evidenced by the impressive number of participants taking part in the four-day trade event. From last year’s 105 booths, PHILBEX Cebu 2018 houses over 120 booths and over 78 exhibitors across its 1,158sqm-wide exhibition space.

Apart from various local exhibitors, something new to watch out for at this year’s PHILBEX Cebu are the roster of international exhibitors from countries such as China, South Korea, Malaysia, and Singapore. No doubt a testament to the growing global reach and influence of PHILBEX Cebu, industry professionals and investors are expected to benefit from this year’s show as it offers everyone a unique opportunity to tap into a foreign network. It would come as no surprise if PHILBEX Cebu 2018 easily outnumbers its previous visitor count of 28,000 show attendees.

Upholding value-laden strategies

PHILBEX Cebu may be highly-regarded for showcasing the most extensive display of the latest and most outstanding product and service innovation from the market but its compelling line-up of signature events is what truly sets the show apart from its contemporaries. And this year is no different as it returns to deliver another insightful range of event highlights.

Among these include the Architect’s Gallery, a venue that showcases the unique design perspectives and insights into the latest trends by the region’s top architects and their respective firms. Participating at this year’s show are Abadia Architects and Designers, Archiglobal, Inc., Nueast, Arkitecture, Pont Architectural + Design Studio, the Philippine Institute of Architects Cebu Chapter, and the United Architects of the Philippines.

Another highly-anticipated PHILBEX Cebu event is the Projéto Cebu Furniture Design Competition. Now on its 3rd edition, Projéto engages participants with the challenge of creating a studio-type condominium unit that will address a student’s need for a relaxing and work-conducive haven. This year, the shortlisted participants are students from the Cebu Institute of Technology-University, the University of San Carlos-Safad, and the University of San Carlos-Talamban.

This year, PHILBEX Cebu is also thrilled to return with the PHILBEX MiniCons. Considered as a platform for the free-flowing exchange of information about innovative solutions that will address issues that concern the industry, the PHILBEX MiniCons is an excellent opportunity for industry professionals to expand their knowledge and get acquainted with likeminded individuals.

The PHILBEX MiniCons 2018 kicked off with the 3rd General Membership Meeting and Technical Seminar of the Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers (PSME) last September 13 while another General Membership Meeting (GMM) for the Chamber of Real Estate and Builders' Associations Inc. (CREBA) will be held on September 14. Most notably, on September 15 to 16, the PHILBEX MiniCons in cooperation with the Philippine Institute of Interior Designers (PIID) – Visayas-Mindanao (VisMin) chapter will present the Business of Interior Design Conference.

Nurturing an empowered community

Over the years, PHILBEX Cebu, in partnership with Philippine Institute of Interior Designers (PIID) – Visayas-Mindanao (VisMin) chapter, has championed the value of interior design in the construction of spaces through the longstanding Interior Designers Gallery. By hosting this year’s PIID – VisMin caravan, PHILBEX Cebu affirms its commitment to nurture Visayan interior design.

Viewed as direct actualizations of the various goals that PHILBEX Cebu have for each of its edition, these highlights serve to engage industry practitioners in relevant discussions and activities that will further the growth and development of the community. As stated by IDr. Joan S. Reyes, President of the Philippine Institute of Interior Designers – Panay Chapter, PHILBEX Cebu marks the “mutual effort to equip the professionals with learning tools in undertaking a higher set of responsibilities as our nation pursue the mandate to building infrastructures.”

Indeed, this year’s PHILBEX Cebu is shaping up to be the show’s biggest and most ambitious installment yet. As captured best by the remarks of IDr. Shiela Sandino-Gumba, President of the Philippine Institute of Interior Designers (PIID) – Eastern Visayas Chapter, PHILBEX Cebu 2018 “presents a preview of the future for industry professionals in the field of construction and interior design.”

Organized by Worldbex Services International, the 16th PHILBEX will run until September 16, from 10am to 8pm, at the SM City Cebu Trade Hall. Admission is free. For more information, follow Worldbex Services International on Facebook and @worldbex on Instagram, call (02) 656-9239, or email info.worldbex@gmail.com.

          Filipina Terancam Gagal Panen Nasional Akibat Topan Mangkhut      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Manila - Masyarakat di Filipina bersiap menghadapi Topan Mangkhut, yang disebut sebagai badai paling kuat tahun ini. Jutaan orang yang tempat tinggalnya berpotensi dilewati oleh badai terkait, telah berbondong-bondong mengungsi ke tempat aman, menyusul prediksi hujan deras berisiko memicu tanah longsor dan banjir bandang.

Pejabat Filipina telah memerintahkan evakuasi dan menutup sekolah dan kantor ketika Topan Mangkhut mendekat, membawa angin yang bertiup dengan kekuatan lebih dari 200 kilometer per jam.

Palang Merah Filipina mengatakan para pekerja daruratnya sedang siaga. Richard Gordon, ketuanya, mengatakan: "Kami khawatir terhadap 10 juta orang di Filipina yang hidup di jalur badai yang merusak ini, termasuk mereka yang telah mengungsi beberapa kali karena hujan deras pada bulan Juli dan Agustus lalu."

Dikutip dari The Guardian pada kamis (13/9/2018), para petani berlomba untuk memanen tanaman mereka sebelum badai menerjang, yang menurut para pengamat cuaca dapat terjadi pada akhir pekan nanti di provinsi Cagayan utara.

Dijelaskan oleh pengamat cuaca Meno Mendoza, angin yang berkelanjutan dapat menguat hingga kecepatan 220 kilometer per jam, atau tepat di bawah kategori topan super, sebelum melakukan pendaratan akhirnya di sekitar perbatasan antara Vietnam dan China.

"Dengan gelombang ganas yang mencakup area sepanjang 900 kilometer, dan dikombinasikan dengan hujan musiman, badai bisa membawa curah hujan tinggi yang berisiko memicu tanah longsor dan banjir bandang," kata Mendoza.

Setelah meninggalkan Filipina, Topan Mangkhhut yang bergerak cepat diperkirakan akan melanda China selatan pada hari Minggu, jika jalurnya tidak bergeser jauh.

Manuel Mamba, gubernur Cagayan, mengatakan desa-desa pesisir dan pulau di utara Filipina itu terus dievakuasi sejak hari Kamis, menjelang serangan badai besar yang diperkirakan terus melaju dari Pasifik Selatan ke arah barat laut.

Sekolah-sekolah di wilayah utara provinsi Cagayan diliburkan mulai Kamis ini. Di hari yang sama, kantor-kantor diberikan toleransi pulang dini jika peringatan badai telah sampai tingkat tertinggi, yang kemungkinan besar berjarak 5-6 jam sebelum benar-benar datang melintas.

Mengancam Rencana Panen Petani

Ilustrasi Bendera Filipina (Wikipedia.org)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Topan Mangkhut bertiup dari Pasifik dan diperkirakan akan langsung menghantam pesisir provinsi Cagayan dan pulau di timur laut provinsi itu.

"Saya menekankan bahwa yang satu ini sangat berbeda, ini lebih rumit karena kemungkinan (terjadi) gelombang badai," kata Gubernur Mamba, mengacu pada laporan terkini dari badan meteoroligi setempat.

Topan Mangkhut tiba pada awal musim panen beras dan jagung di Cagayan, yang merupakan salah satu produsen pertanian utama di Filipina. Melihat hal tersebut, para petani pun bergegas menyelamatkan apa saja yang bisa mereka dapat dari kemungkinan hasil panen tahun ini.

Padahal di satu sisi, pemerintah Filipina tengah berupaya mengatasai ancaman kekurangan pasokan beras yang mulai terasa sejak awal tahun.

Kantor kepala Pertahanan Sipil Ricardo Jalad mengatakan provinsi utara lainnya juga akan mulai mengevakuasi warganya pada Kamis ini.

"Kasus terburuk adalah daerah-daerah ini akan dihantam angin kencang yang dapat merobohkan rumah, memicu gelombang badai dan hujan deras yang dapat menyebabkan banjir, dan mungkin ada tanah longsor di kawasan yang lebih tinggi," kata Jalad.

Topan Mangkhut adalah badai ke-15 yang melanda Filipina sejak awal tahun. Negara yang beribukota di Manila itu rata-rata mengalami hantaman 20 badai, yang besarnya bervariasi, sehingga menjadikannya sebagai salah satu wilayah paling rawan bencana di dunia.

Topan terbesar sejauh ini tercatat pada 2013, yakni ketika Topan Haiyan menyebabkan 7.300 orang tewas, dan lima juta orang lainnya mengungsi lebih dari dua minggu lamanya.


          Huawei Nova 3i vs OPPO F9 Specs, Benchmark Scores, Price, and Design : A Comparative Review      Cache   Translate Page      
When Huawei Nova 3i was officially launched globally on the last week of July 2018, many tech bloggers and editors called it the "New Midrange King" largely because of its stellar design, build, set of technical specifications, and imaging capabilities.

Fast forward to September 2018, does Huawei's popular mid-level release still get to keep the crown on its head in the face of serious competition posed by its rival manufacturers from China?

Huawei Nova 3i vs OPPO F9

As of writing, Huawei Nova 3i's main rival in the Philippine market appears to be the all-new OPPO F9, which was formally introduced to local bloggers, dealers, and members of the media on August 15, 2018.

Huawei Nova 3i vs OPPO F9

These two top-notch handsets were immediately pitted against each other largely because of their rather similar design and build as well as their comparable imaging features and internal hardware.

But which of the two is actually better and worth your hard-earned money?

In this TechPinas Comparison Post, I will try to answer that question - for the benefit of Pinoy mobile consumers - by doing a side-by-side comparison of their design, set of specs, price, and even benchmark scores -- in the most fair way that I can.


To make the comparison easier, I've included actual photos of these much-talked-about smartphone models along with the meticulous technical specifications table below, which makes it more convenient to spot the exact similarities or differences between these renowned midrange devices.

Alright! Let me jump straight to my commentary.

Design, Build, and Display

As you can see in these photos, Huawei Nova 3i and OPPO F9 share largely identical design language with some variance here and there.

The two phones have a rectangle with rounded corners form factor as well as a luxurious glass sandwich look although it is believed that OPPO F9 features polished acrylic back panel in lieu of real glass. Aside from that, these handsets share the exact same 169 grams heft and overall feel in the hand.

So how are they different in terms of looks?

Obviously, they come in different color variants, Huawei Nova 3i is available in Iris Purple (my favorite), Black, and Pearl White. On the other hand, OPPO F9 is currently out in Sunrise Red and  Twilight Blue with Petal Pattern at the back, and - eventually - Starry Purple.

The Iris Purple gradient finish of the Huawei Nova 3i has proven to be a real hit among Pinoys. In fact, this tone has been adopted by stylists and fashionistas not only in their outfits but also in the color of their hair. I guess that says something about Huawei's inclination to cater to the hip and trendy crowd who love expressing themselves through the colors and the designs of their outfits and gadgets.

Aside from the phones' colors, their camera modules at the back have different orientations. The one on Nova 3i is positioned vertically while OPPO F9 has it horizontally. Also, the Fingerprint Scanner below the cameras have a different shape on each phone; It's a perfect circle on the Nova 3i and oblong on the OPPO F9.

Even the position of the hardware buttons vary on each device. The power button is placed on the right panel on both phones but the one on the Nova 3i is slightly closer to the middle. The volume up and down buttons of the OPPO F9 are both placed on the left panel while Huawei Nova 3i has them also on the right panel, just above the power button.


Which model has the better button placement? It depends on the user. If you just like using your thumb to do the clicking, Nova 3i would be better for you. But if you like using multiple fingers to do the task, you might lean towards OPPO F9.

Now, as for their displays, these two actually share the same 6.3-inch FullHD+ IPS screen. However, Nova 3i's is taller as it has a 19.5:9 Aspect Ratio compared to 19:9 for the OPPO F9.

As shown in the image below, the display of each phone features a notch. The one on the OPPO F9 has a smaller waterdrop look while Nova 3i's is larger and looks more like that of the flagship-level Apple iPhone X.

What's good about Huawei Nova 3i's notch, however, is that it can easily be turned off by going to Settings > Display > Notch > Hide Notch.

Huawei Nova 3i vs OPPO F9

Imaging Capabilities

OPPO F9 and Huawei Nova 3i are powered by AI Imaging Technology that automatically figures out the subject in front of the camera - including food, people, greenery, and the sky, among others - and instantly tweaks the settings - like saturation, shadows, and highlights - to deliver the best shot possible.

For those who love taking selfies, the Nova 3i has two AI-powered cameras in front - a 24MP main snapper plus a 2MP Depth Sensor - while OPPO F9 only has one, which is a 25 MegaPixel f/2.0 cam powered by the company's AI Beauty 2.1 software that's made to capture the real you.

In my experience using both handsets, Nova 3i tends to deliver brighter selfies with more aggressive clearing while OPPO F9 tends to have smarter beautification effects to show your real facial features.

Since Huawei Nova 3i has a two front camera module, I find that it also gives you a slightly more refined bokeh effect for self-portraits wherein the background of the subject is beautifully blurred. I guess that secondary cam really helps. Also, the depth sensor helps power the handset's AR Lens for , which includes fun effects like 3D Qmoji and Backgrounds for Selfie Videos, which are so fun to use!

Huawei Nova 3i vs OPPO F9

As for the rear camera, both phones feature an AI-Powered 16MP primary cam + 2MP depth sensor that work together to give shallow depth of field effect on portrait, food, or product shots.

Both cameraphones are very reliable in capturing images and videos of various subjects with the Nova 3i often giving brighter shots with warmer tone in well-lit settings. However, frankly, in low light conditions OPPO F9 has an edge because of its primary cam's wider f/2.0 aperture and electronic image stabilization.

Internal Hardware and Benchmark Test Scores

As I've said, Huawei Nova 3i and OPPO F9 are very close when it comes to actual performance -- and that is proven by their 136,820 and 136,628 Antutu Benchmark Scores, respectively. It's really tight with Nova 3i scoring just a wee bit higher.

Huawei Nova 3i Antutu Benchmark Score, OPPO F9 Antutu Benchmark Score, Huawei Nova 3i vs OPPO F9

Looking at the scores, it's clear that the newer Kirin 710 processor of Nova 3i has more powerful multi-core computing performance -- but the Mali-G72 MP3 GPU of the older MediaTek Helio P60 chipset of the OPPO F9 is its saving grace, outperforming the Mali-G51 MP4 GPU of the Kirin 710.

I would give better multitasking performance to OPPO F9 because of its larger 6GB of RAM over just 4GB for the Nova 3i -- but when it comes to internal storage space, the Huawei Nova 3i is the clear winner with a whopping 128GB of ROM versus just 64GB for the competing phone.

Both handsets have a microSD card slot but the one in OPPO F9 is dedicated while Nova 3i has a secondary hybrid nanoSIM slot that can also take in a microSD card. Given the sheer size of Nova 3i's storage, though, I think it will take a long while before you will find the need to transfer files or to even consider getting a microSD card for additional space.

Battery Life and Fast Charging Features

Considering that F9's battery has a higher 3,400 mAh capacity compared to 3,340 mAh on the Nova 3i, I was expecting OPPO's hero midrange model to easily win this round.

That's why I was shocked when Nova 3i outlasted the F9 by more than an hour when I ran the PCMark Battery Life test on both phones. I mean look at the results. (I guess I'll have to run it again to confirm this. I remain baffled, actually. But hey, kudos to Huawei!)

OPPO F9 and Huawei Nova 3i PCMark Battery Life Test Results, respetively.

Good thing OPPO F9 has the company's patented Flash Charge technology that can give the handset up to 2 hours of talk time with just 5 minutes of charging using the provided travel charger and microUSB to USB connector cable.

Based on the results shown above, however, it's clear that when it comes to battery life on a full charge, Huawei Nova 3i wins.


Connectivity and Security Features

Looking at the table, it's clear that the two phones are pretty even in this department. They both support Dual SIM Dual Standby, USB OTG, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, and 4G LTE Cat 13 mobile connectivity.

For user protection, OPPO F9 and Huawei Nova 3i both have a Fingerprint Scanner at the back and a Facial Recognition software integrated into the front cam, providing a veritable later of privacy and security for their owners.

Operating System and User Interface

These two smartphones both run the Android 8.1 Oreo Operating System and benefit from all improvements that Google had implemented on this fairly updated version of its mobile OS.

Even their individual UIs, Color OS 5.2 for the F9 and EMUI 8.2 for the Nova 3i, look just as neat and organized. They are also uncomplicated to use as they don't have an app drawer which many users - apparently - aren't all that comfortable with.

Despite the similarities, though, both UIs have several unique offerings. For instance, Color OS 5.2 gives functionality to the notch by allowing users to swipe on other sides while watching videos or playing games to access messages, to take screenshots, or to record the display without leaving the application. On the other hand, EMUI has useful value-added features like PrivateSpace that lets you create a separate zone in your device that only you can access and Voice Control which allows you to quickly initiate calls when the screen is turned off just by talking to your phone, among others.

Price

Well, this one is pretty easy. Huawei Nova 3i is more affordable by PHP 2,000. It dons an official suggested retail price of PHP 15,990 while OPPO F9 sells for PHP 17,990.

Huawei Nova 3i vs OPPO F9

So Which 2018 Hero Midrange Smartphone is Better?

The truth is, you can't go wrong choosing either of these smartphones. Having tested both models, I would say that each of them has their own strengths and weaknesses that balance each other out to make these handsets true shoulder-to-shoulder competitors.

My opinion, though, is that if you can let go of some of the unique selling points that OPPO F9 offers - including EIS and the wider aperture of the primary rear camera - to save PHP 2,000, just go for the Huawei Nova 3i. But if you must have those features, then - by all means - go ahead and spend more.

If you choose the Huawei Nova 3i, though, I'm sure you will appreciate the four-camera set-up, the larger storage space for all your photos, videos and other important files, the handset's luxurious real glass back panel, and of course, the fun AR effects for Selfie Videos.

          As 1.7 million people evacuate for Hurricane Florence, a far stronger 'super typhoon' is about to hit the Philippines and China      Cache   Translate Page      

typhoon manghkut

  • Super Typhoon Mangkhut is about to hit southeast Asia.
  • It is predicted to be a far bigger and more dangerous storm than Hurricane Florence, which is set to hit the US east coast.
  • Mangkhut is expected to make landfall in the Philippines on Saturday, before moving on to southern China, Vietnam, and Laos.
  • It has already lashed through Guam, causing power outages, destroying homes, and flooding large areas.
  • Guam's governor has asked Donald Trump for federal aid.

As 1.7 million people on the US East Coast prepare for Hurricane Florence's arrival, another stronger storm is set to lash southeast Asia.

Super Typhoon Mangkhut, considered the strongest storm so far this season, is expected to make landfall in the Philippines before advancing to southern China, Vietnam, and Laos.

The map below, published by the Philippines' meteorological authority on Thursday morning, shows the typhoon's predicted path over the next few days. Typhoon Mangkhut is also known as Typhoon Ompong in the Philippines.

The northern Philippines, southern China, Vietnam, and northern Laos are in the typhoon's direct line.

As of Thursday morning, the storm was 450 miles in the Pacific Ocean with sustained winds of 127 mph, and gusts of up to 158 mph, the Associated Press reported.

Tropical cyclones in the west North Pacific Ocean with sustained winds of more than 150 mph are called "super typhoons."

That makes the typhoon the equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale, which is used to measure storms in the Atlantic and northern Pacific oceans.

Mangkhut is expected to be more "bigger, stronger, and more dangerous" than Florence, although the comparative damage of the two storms depends on what they hit, CNN reported.

typhoon mangkhut map

Brandon Miller, CNN's meteorologist, said:

"All things being equal, Mangkhut is a bigger, stronger and more dangerous storm [than Florence].

"Any land hit directly would see more significant and destructive impacts from the Super Typhoon due to its size and intensity."

However, because the US east coast has more and costlier infrastructure than southeast Asia, Florence is likely to wreak more damage to property. At least two nuclear power plants are in Florence’s direct path.

"But Mangkhut presents a more serious threat to life considering it will hit with stronger winds, over a larger area, and have higher storm surge," he added.

Mangkhut tore through the Marshall Islands and US territory Guam earlier this week. The typhoon left parts of Guam without electricity, as well as knocked down power poles, destroyed houses, uprooted trees, and flooded large areas, the local Pacific Daily News reported.

Guam governor Eddie Calvo has asked President Donald Trump to send federal aid to help restore the island.

Evacuations and stockpiling

The Philippines is poised to get hit first. Officials in the island nation have started evacuating thousands of people, closing down schools, and preparing bulldozers for landslides, the Associated Press reported.

Food prices in Hong Kong, which is preparing for heavy rainfall and storms from Typhoon Mangkhut, have gone up as residents started stockpiling, the South China Morning Post reported.

Shopkeepers have also started putting sandbags in front of their stores to prevent water from getting in.

Celebrities Bela Padilla, Ella Cruz, and Donnalyn Bartolome will lead TikTok's 1 Million Audition in the Philippines!



TikTok, the world's fastest growing short-form video app, is bringing its global talent search, 1 Million Audition, to the Philippines from September 7 to September 21, to look for the best Filipino creators online.

Trendsetters Bela Padilla, Ella Cruz, and Donnalyn Bartolome will act as the ambassadors and lead the Fashion, Talent, and Comedy categories respectively. 

The hashtags of each category will be as follows: 
    
#1MPHTalent - Ella Cruz: https://instagram.com/p/BnWABYCnnZ0/  
#1MPHComedy - Donnalyn Bartolome: https://www.instagram.com/p/BnTSXvWnNx1/  
#1MPHFashion - Bela Padilla: https://www.instagram.com/p/BnaVBrhnC68/


Introduced in 2017, TikTok's 1 Million Audition provides budding artists a platform to showcase their diverse talents and win millions of followers and rewards at the same time. It has been successfully held across Japan, India, Latin America, Europe, and the United States with over one million participants.

 For talented Pinoys, the 1 Million Audition can be their gateway to stardom. Through TikTok's 1 Million Audition, Indian creator Manjul Khattar has grown his followers to 700,000 in just three months while Korean influencer dancers has gathered 1.3 million followers on TikTok within two months.

The 1 Million Audition winners will receive prizes of up to Php20,000 each. They will also be invited to the Gala Party on September 29 in Manila where the Top 3 Most Popular Awards on Instagram @tiktok_philippines, Facebook @tiktokphilippinesofficial, and Twitter @TikTokPH will be announced as well.

What's more exciting is that the three final winners from each category will be invited to the TikTok Gala in Seoul, Korea in October to celebrate and meet other creators from the app's global community. The ambassadors, moreover, also shared some words of encouragement and excitement over the search.

"So excited to see Pinoy fashionistas show off their OOTDs on TikTok's 1 Million Audition. TikTok will definitely change the way they express themselves," Bela said.

"I love watching funny TikTok videos and I can't wait to see more from our talented kababayans. I hope they won't miss this chance to reach their dreams," Donnalyn added.

"There are always talented people on TikTok! I'm looking forward to discover these talented artists and to help them jumpstart their careers," Ella also said.


Whether it's singing, dancing, or playing an instrument, TikTok opens its doors to talented Filipinos to share their talents and to become the next fast-rising superstar.

          Hizbul terrorist held in UP, was planning attacks during Ganesh Chaturthi      Cache   Translate Page      

Lucknow, Sep 13 (IANS) The Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) of the Uttar Pradesh Police on Thursday arrested a Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist from Kanpur, police officials said.

The terrorist, Huraira aka Qamruddin, who hails from Hozai in Assam, was arrested by an ATS team led by ASP Dinesh Yadav and Deputy SP Dinesh Puri.

ATS Inspector General (IG) Aseem Arun said the arrested terrorist first came into limelight after he posted his picture with an AK-47 in the social media in April this year.

Intelligence agencies had been working on him for some time now, and based on leads collected over a period of time, he was arrested on Thursday from Shiv Nagar under Choker Police Station in Kanpur.

Officials told IANS that the terrorist had plans to attack public places during the ongoing Ganesh Chaturthi festival. Video grabs of a prominent city temple were found from his mobile phone.

He was sent by the Hizbul commanders to do a recce of the area and then carry out an attack, a police official privy to the development said.

During the initial interrogation, he has accepted that he is a member of Hizbul Mujahideen and that he was in Kanpur to carry out a major terror activity.

He also informed the police and ATS officials that he was trained by handlers in Kashmir in April 2017 in the thickets and mountainous region of Kishtwar. He is a graduate dropout from a college in Assam and has a diploma in computer course and typing, Director General of Police (DGP) O.P. Singh said.

Investigations have also revealed that during 2008-2012, he was in Republic of Palau, an island country near Philippines.

The ATS is now trying to know from him about the duration of his stay in Uttar Pradesh, if he has more accomplices, what were his other targets and where did he get funds from, the DGP added.

Hurricane Florence's outer rain bands approached the coast of the Carolinas early Thursday, with its top sustained winds decreasing to 110 miles per hour from a high of 140 miles per hour. Authorities warned that high winds, storm surge, and heavy rains could still cause catastrophic flooding as the storm's forward speed slows and it drenches inland areas for days. The storm is expected to make landfall in the Carolinas early Friday. Authorities there have urged more than 1 million people to evacuate coastal areas. President Trump said the government was prepared to respond to the storm but urged people in its path to seek safe shelter. "Don't play games with it," he said. "It's a big one." [The Associated Press, CNN]

President Trump on Wednesday authorized new sanctions against any country or individual that tries to meddle in upcoming U.S. elections. "This is intended to be a very broad effort to prevent foreign manipulation of the political process," National Security Adviser John Bolton said. It would let Trump impose sanctions on anyone who tries to interfere in the November midterms either overtly, by meddling with such things as vote counts, or indirectly, by spreading misinformation, Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats said. Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and Sen Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) issued a joint statement calling for tougher legislation against election interference. "Today's announcement by the administration recognizes the threat," they wrote, "but does not go far enough to address it." [The Washington Post]

Pope Francis called the world's Catholic bishops for an unprecedented meeting in Rome to discuss protecting children from predatory priests, the Vatican said Wednesday. The gathering comes after fresh allegations of widespread abuse and cover-ups in Pennsylvania that have prompted several other states to investigate sexual abuse by clerics. Other high-profile cases in Chile and the Philippines have added to pressure on Francis to step up the church's efforts to address the scandal, and some observers see the meeting at the Vatican as a sign that the pope is trying to adopt a global approach to protecting children and holding abusive clerics accountable. [The New York Times]

The number of detained migrant children has risen sharply over the last year, reaching a record 12,800 this month, The New York Times reports. There were just 2,400 undocumented immigrant children in custody in May 2017. The numbers have increased as the Trump administration has cracked down on illegal immigration despite the court-ordered release of hundreds of children separated from their parents at the border in the Trump administration's effort to prevent undocumented families from entering the country. The increase has left federal shelters nearly full. The Times said the data indicated that the increase was due to a reduction in the number of children being released to relatives or sponsors, not an increase in the number of children entering the country. [The New York Times]

5.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) on Wednesday night released 28 more documents on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that were deemed "committee confidential" by the Senate Judiciary Committee. The documents are from Kavanaugh's time serving in the White House counsel's office in the George W. Bush administration. They demonstrate his involvement in judicial nominations, including those of such controversial picks as Charles Pickering, who was appointed despite concerns about his views on race relations. Kavanaugh had said he wasn't substantially involved in the nomination, and Booker said the documents "raise more serious and concerning questions" about his honesty during his confirmation hearing. A conservative judicial group referred Booker to the Senate Ethics Committee over his earlier disclosure of confidential documents. [The Associated Press]

Super Typhoon Mangkhut on Thursday continued barreling toward the largest and most heavily populated island in the Philippines with top sustained winds of 150 miles per hour. The storm is expected to bring "ruinous rain to central Luzon," an agricultural area considered the country's breadbasket, said Richard Gordon, a senator and chairman of the Philippine Red Cross. The military and police in the threatened area have been placed on red alert. The storm is expected to start hitting the Philippines with wind and rain on Friday, with its eye crossing northern Luzon on Saturday. In the Caribbean, Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to cross the Lesser Antilles on Thursday. It will pass south of Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria last year, and dump three inches of rain on parts of the island. [The New York Times, The Weather Channel]

The Trump administration has proposed a new round of trade talks with China aiming to prevent further escalation of President Trump's trade war against the world's second largest economy, Larry Kudlow, director of Trump's National Economic Council, confirmed on Wednesday. Kudlow called the move "positive." "We are in communication right now and you could say that communication has picked up a notch," he added. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and other top officials recently extended the invitation to their counterparts in China, Bloomberg reported, citing three people familiar with the matter. One of the people, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the talks probably would be held in Washington, D.C. [Bloomberg]

The Seattle Storm swept the Washington Mystics in the WNBA Finals, winning their third league title with a 98-82 win in Game 3. The Storm also beat the Mystics by double-digits in the first two games of the series. "It doesn't feel real yet, honestly," WNBA Finals MVP Breanna Stewart said. "I think that what we did as a team for these past four months, we had a goal and that was to win a championship." The Storm charged into a 16-point lead early on, boosted by the dominance of Stewart and center Natasha Howard, who had 17 points each in the first half. [Yahoo Sports]

CBS News fired longtime 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager on Wednesday for sending a text message threatening the career of a CBS reporter, Jericka Duncan, who had contacted him for comment on sexual harassment allegations against him that were reported by The New Yorker and The Washington Post. "Be careful," he wrote. "There are people who lost their jobs trying to harm me and if you pass on these damaging claims without your own reporting to back them up that will become a serious problem." Fager called the sexual harassment allegations "false" but acknowledged sending the text to Duncan. The president of CBS News, David Rhodes, said Fager's firing was "not directly related" to the allegations, but that he had violated company policy. [The New York Times, Variety]

Porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with President Trump more than a decade ago, said on ABC's The View Wednesday that her book, Stormy Daniels: Full Disclosure, will reveal new details on the alleged affair. The book is due out on Oct. 2, a month before the midterm elections. Daniels said the book has been in the works for 10 years, and is not being rushed out due to interest in her relationship with Trump. The book also will cover other parts of her life. "I just sort of melded everything together," she said. "I've kept notebooks of the adventures I've had on the road and in strip clubs and stuff. It will blow your mind." [The Washington Post]

12 September 2018

MANILA, Philippines (AP) – The most powerful typhoon to threaten the Philippines this year roared toward the country’s north on Wednesday, prompting officials to order precautionary evacuations and closures of schools and offices, and farmers to quickly harvest their crops to reduce damage.

Forecasters said Typhoon Mangkhut could hit northern Cagayan province on Saturday. It was 1,190 kilometers (738 miles) away in the Pacific with sustained winds of 205 kilometers per hour (127 miles per hour).

Its sustained winds could strengthen to 220 kph (136 mph), or just below the super typhoon category, before making landfall, forecaster Meno Mendoza said.

With a massive rain band 900 kilometers (560 miles) wide, combined with seasonal monsoon rains, the storm could bring “heavy to intense” rains that could set off landslides and flash floods, Mendoza said.

Cagayan Gov. Manuel Mamba said by telephone that northern coastal and island villages in the typhoon’s projected path will begin evacuating residents on Thursday ahead of the expected onslaught. He said classes in schools would be suspended Thursday and offices, except those involved in rescue and relief work, would be advised to close on Friday. […]

Office of Civil Defense chief Ricardo Jalad said other northern provinces will also start evacuating residents from low-lying areas on Thursday.

“The worst case are those areas which will be directly hit by strong winds that can topple houses, storm surges and heavy rains that can cause flooding, and there may be landslides in higher areas,” Jalad told reporters. [more]
