          Pigments Market New Business Opportunities & Investment Research Report: 2026      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- Pigments is a group of compounds that are intensely colored and are employed to impart color to other materials. They absorb the light of selective wavelength and then emit various colors through the process of reflection or transmission. Pigments are used to improve the appearance of a substrate on which they are used or impart color to the medium in which they are used. Pigments can be organic or inorganic. Organic pigments are based on carbon chains and carbon rings. However, they can also contain metallic elements that help stabilize properties of the organic component. Inorganic pigments are usually metallic salts precipitated from solutions. The particle size of inorganic pigments is larger than that of organic pigments. Pigments can impart a versatile range of colors to paints, coatings, plastics, inks, etc. while improving their aesthetic properties. These help enhance properties such as opacity, hiding power, light and weather fastness, heat stability, and tinting strength.

Read Report Overview @
https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/pigments-market.html

pigments industry Based on product, the pigments market has been classified into inorganic, organic, and specialty. Inorganic pigments are the most commercially used pigments. Inorganic pigments are usually extracted from minerals or petrochemical sources. Largely used inorganic pigments are titanium dioxide, iron oxide, carbon black, and chromium compounds. Titanium dioxide is the most used inorganic pigment. Titanium dioxide is in the form of fine white powder. It is used in paints and coatings to attain maximum whiteness. It provides the paint with high hiding power i.e. ability to mask or hide the substrate underneath. Hiding power of titanium dioxide is higher than any other white pigment. Currently, titanium dioxide is by far the most important pigment used in the paints industry for attaining whiteness. Organic pigments that are most commonly used are azo compounds, quinacridone, and phthalocyanine. Organic pigments have brighter colors such as blue, green, yellow, red, and orange; higher color strength; and little toxicity. Organic pigments can be extracted from organic compounds such as succinic acid, aniline, and phthalonitrile. Specialty pigments such as metallic, high-performance organic, fluorescent, phosphorescent, and luminescent pigments offer vibrant color intensity, glossy effect, and durability. The specialty pigments segment is expected to be driven by rising investments in infrastructure and increasing need for long-lasting pigments that can resist harsh weather. Specialty pigments are used by high-end automobile companies and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Specialty pigments are in high demand as they increase the functionality by binding the substrate and paint together and enhance the aesthetic appeal of the substrate. Growing need for protection of buildings from dampness, fungi, and corrosion is also boosting the specialty pigments segment.

Paints & coatings is the dominant end-user segment of the pigments market. Pigments are used extensively in the formulation of paints. Pigments impart color and a glossy effect as well as improve aesthetic appeal of paints and coatings. Usage of pigments helps impart brightness, heat stability, and light stability to the paint. The architectural paints & coatings industry has grown considerably owing to rise in infrastructure development and construction activities in developing economies. Furthermore, growth of automotive and consumer goods sectors has boosted the decorative paints & coatings industry. The paints & coatings industry in developed countries witnesses higher per capita consumption, but sluggish growth. The per capita consumption of paints in developing countries is lower than that in developed countries in Western Europe. The per capita consumption of paints in India, China, Singapore, South Korea, and countries in ASEAN and GCC is likely to increase significantly in the near future, due to the economic growth. Thus, growth of the paints & coatings industry is likely to be a key driver of the pigments market during the forecast period.

Request to view Sample Report:
https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=S&rep_id=905

Increasing plastic consumption is another driver of the market for pigments. Pigments are employed as colorants in a wide range of plastics owing to their excellent compatibility with several plastics. Pigments impart unique appearance and styling effects to plastic products. High-performance organic and inorganic pigments are used in the plastics industry. Pigments are employed in PVC pipes, window profiles, vinyl siding, and gutters. Pigments applied in the plastics industry guarantee maximum color strength and stability and low coloring costs. Besides coloring effects and improved esthetics, pigments increase the stability of plastics and improve their resistance to weather conditions such as heat and moisture.

          3 Applications of Cryptocurrency Beyond Peer-to-Peer Payments      Cache   Translate Page      


3 Applications of Cryptocurrency Beyond Peer-to-Peer Payments

To be sure, digital currency markets have had their ups and downs. A recent study by Gallup shows that only 2 percent of investors are currently purchasing Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, but one in four is intrigued. With major banks betting on the space, however, that math may be about to change.

Whether or not your company accepts cryptocurrency as a payment method, it would do well to pay attention to the surprising ways the business world is already using digital currency:

1. Investing in customer loyalty.

Loyalty programs have long struggled to find the right incentive structure. According to the 2017 Colloquy Loyalty Census, more than half of loyalty memberships in the U.S. are inactive. The report says approximately 30 percent of surveyed U.S. and Canadian consumers have left loyalty programs without ever redeeming a point or a mile.

Could cryptocurrencies reignite customer loyalty? Cryptocurrency gives customers want they want -- cash -- without the security and logistics challenges of doling out cash.

In Zurich, for example, Caffe Lattesso encourages purchasers to redeem codes found on its bottles for loyalty rewards in the form of digital coins, which can be exchanged within a few months for other digital tokens or traditional currency. EZ Rent-A-Car is following suit with a program that allows customers to exchange their loyalty points for digital coins.

2. Banking on accessory technologies.

Rather than re-invigorate their existing customer base, other entrepreneurs could look at building a new one around the cryptocurrency market. Investors may start focusing less on initial coin offerings and more on building the technological ecosystem around cryptocurrencies.

Demand is growing quickly for digital currency point-of-sale systems, for example. Although most of the demand is currently in South Korea, at least one company plans to distribute some 100,000 point-of-sale machines by 2021. Vendors that accept cryptocurrencies will also need accounting and reporting software to support the payment method.

3. Making change with ease.

But cryptocurrencies are good for more than spending money; they're also great for giving back. Eric Tippetts, co-founder of NASGO pointed out at the United Nations' Media for Social Change Summit, cryptocurrency's digital nature makes set-it-and-forget-it philanthropy possible.

"Instead of voicing a commitment to philanthropy, the blockchain makes it possible to program giving into the operation itself," Tippetts explained in a Cheddar interview. NASGO's financial systems, he noted, direct every seventeenth revenue cycle into an account for humanitarian contributions...

          Onorato: MSC Committed to Sustainable Growth in China      Cache   Translate Page      

Published in: Cruise News

Gianni Onorato, CEO

“We are very satisfied with the outcome of 2018 in China,” said Gianni Onorato, CEO of MSC Cruises. “We are expecting an even better 2019 with the capacity changes.”

Speaking to Cruise Industry News in Shenzhen, Onorato said there is plenty of demand in the market, and MSC was managing it in a sustainable way, as opposed to the aggressive build up that other operators had tried.

The MSC Splendida was in the market seasonally in 2018, and will extend her program in 2019, staying for the winter ahead of being replaced by the new and larger Bellissima in 2020.

Onorato said the market was moving from the charter model to more block bookings, and MSC has also started taking direct sales as well.

The booking window is also moving out for the Swiss-based brand.

“We are on the right track,” Onorato said. “We have already seen a strong improvement in the booking window in the last 12 to 18 months. We are in good shape for 2019.”

Festivities at China Cruise Shipping 13

Among the challenges are limited deployment options with South Korea off the table, temporarily.

Opportunities include cabotage, which is an ongoing topic. Embarking Chinese guests in multiple homeports, a strategy MSC uses to its advantage in the Mediterranean, could prove to be a huge momentum boost.

The company is adding more nights to sailings in 2019, with additional five-night cruises on its schedule, and even a six-night sailing. Come winter 2019-2020, new deployments will see the Splendida sail from Shenzhen and Xiamen, calling mostly on Japan but also introducing Vietnam.

The new Bellissima will debut in the market in early 2020. Under construction at Chantiers in France, the 4,500-guest ship will be the largest in China, and feature MSC’s personal digital assistant, Zoe, in every stateroom.

MSC Splendida

Onorato commended Chinese travel agencies and government officials for playing a major role in developing the cruise industry in China.

Agencies, he said, created cruise departments from nothing and took huge risks chartering ships.

As for government officials, they have pushed through terminal development and key policy changes.

“I see a bright future,” Onorato explained. “Every cruise line makes their own decisions, and we do not have enough ships to move more to China today. But, we are growing and this is an important sign to the market that we are here, serious, growing and committed.”

Song Do, the new designed city of the future is having teething problems. How long will it last as the sea level rises and reclaims the marshland the city took over? But it also has a very dark side. <i>LOOKING wistfully around at the surroundings, a strange mix of marshland and random high-rise buildings, Shim Jong-rae shakes his head, echoing the sentiment of many residents: “It’s a ghost town.” For more than a decade, urban planners have been studying the construction of Songdo, South Korea, the world’s first Smart City. Built within 25 miles of Seoul, it was to be the antithesis of the suffocating, overpopulated capital. A new way of thinking for more than 300,000 residents, spread out over 600 hectares of reclaimed land from the Yellow Sea. The brainchild of developers and the government, the vision was to construct a car-free world, with 40 per cent green space and dozens of kilometres of cycling routes. <i></i> https://www.scmp.com/week-asia/business/article/2137838/south-koreas-smart-city-songdo-not-quite-smart-enough But even worse, Songdo represents ecohabitat destruction. </i><i> Reclamation of internationally important tidal-flats at Song Do, as elsewhere, however, has already resulted in substantial declines in some species of waterbird at the local, national and even population level. Some of the species in decline are globally-threatened. These declines will continue further with further reclamation Simply, a genuine eco-city would not be built on tidal-flats. A genuine eco-city would cherish remaining tidal-flats, and aim to restore and enhance intertidal wetland – and not permit or promote its destruction. Unlike the ROK and China, most nations already gave up large-scale tidal-flat reclamation several decades ago. Now, the United States of America, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy among a host of other nations, are instead actively investing in restoring coastal wetlands and tidal-flats. Restoration, while expensive and less efficient than conservation of natural intertidal wetland, still helps these nations to move closer to meeting their formal obligations to the conservation conventions, and to help conserve migratory bird and fish species that depend on tidal-flats. It also allows them (and future generations of their citizens), to reap the multiple environmental, social and economic benefits of conservation through restoring ecosystem health and services. Is this really the most economical, efficient and environmentally-sound use of land that until a few years ago was some of the most naturally productive and wildlife-rich wetland in the world?<i></i> http://www.birdskorea.org/Habitats/Wetlands/Songdo/BK-HA-Songdo-Is-Song-Do-an-Example-of-Sustainable-Development.shtml Anyone see a triple whammy here?</i>

          Crown Prince Launches Saudi Arabia's First Nuclear Reactor On Very Day Sanctions Hit Iran      Cache   Translate Page      

In but the latest after an insane month of news featuring the kingdom since the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the AP reports Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman laid the ceremonial foundation stone for Saudi Arabia's first nuclear research reactor on Monday. 

The site is the first of 16 planned reactor sites to be built over the next two decades, and is raising fears that it could mark the start of nuclear proliferation in the Middle East, especially given the timing as November 5th was the very day severe U.S. sanctions on Iran targeting the energy industry took effect, precisely over the White House accusation that it is not serious about de-nuclearization. 

MbS at the inaugural ceremony on Monday. Image source: SPA

The official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported that the reactor is part of seven major projects launched as he visited Riyadh’s King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology. The kingdom is seeking to diversify the way it meets its energy needs, currently driven by oil and gas. The SPA report did not indicate when the research reactor would go online, but did mention it is the start of a 20-year, $80bn project to build 16 nuclear reactors

According to a joint AP/Times of Israel report

Prince Mohammed said in March that if Iran develops a nuclear weapon, Riyadh will do so too. In an interview with CBS television, he likened regional rival Iran’s supreme leader to Hitler, saying he “wants to create his own project in the Middle East.”

Riyadh held deep reservations over the 2015 accord aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear ambitions and hailed US President Donald Trump’s announcement in May that the United States was withdrawing from the deal.

During that CBS/60 Minutes interview MbS said"Saudi Arabia doesn’t want to own a nuclear bomb. But without a doubt, if Iran develops a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible.”

No doubt the symbolism of MbS laying the foundation stone for the kingdom's first nuclear reactor on the very day aggressive sanctions on Iran snapped back will not be lost of Tehran.

Given the timing it appears the Saudis were positively celebrating the sanctions and even provoking Iran. All of this means that the nuclear arms race between Iran and Saudi Arabia is officially on, even as much of the Middle East and the world is spotlighting the crimes  of both. However, it will likely come slowly at first and under the guise of "peaceful" energy development of a "research" nature. 

And guess which Western country is inking deals with the Saudis for nuclear reactors? We don't expect the global outrage over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi to ultimately halt such deals, even if they slow for the time being. The AP reports:

Trump reportedly refused a March request by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for a commitment to halting an emerging deal to sell further nuclear reactors to Saudi Arabia, telling the prime minister that if the US did not supply the reactors, then the Russians or Chinese would.

Netanyahu and his team reportedly requested that, if the Americans insist on going ahead with building reactors, Saudi Arabia be prevented from enriching uranium by itself.

Currently, the only Arab Gulf country to have previously launched a nuclear power project is the United Arab Emirates, which is constructing four South Korea-designed reactors.

Meanwhile Iran has long claimed its own nuclear initiatives were purely to pursue energy needs much like the Gulf countries are seeking to diversify away from sole reliance on oil and gas. While the West has always refused to take Tehran's word for it, it will be interesting to see if there's any eventual shift in opinion concerning the Saudis' pursuit of large reactors given the current scrutiny over the kingdom's dismal human rights record in the wake of the Khashoggi affair. 


          China's Middle Class Is Again Desperate To Move Its Money Out Of The Country      Cache   Translate Page      

The Chinese middle class is again taking substantial risks to move their money out of China. As a result, Chinese investors are blowing up foreign real estate markets while risking getting ripped off at the same time. 

The South China Morning Post recently highlighted one such example, profiling several Chinese citizens who purchased property in Australia to safeguard their wealth, only to see the well-known Australia-based property agent suddenly shutter its doors in August, leaving behind about $50 million in missing deposits and failed settlements.

This kind of "unexpected" event is just one example of the risks that Chinese mainlanders face while trying to protect themselves by moving assets overseas, especially in light of Beijing's strict capital controls on outbound capital. Many Chinese citizens even seek out citizenship or visas in nearby friendly foreign countries to diversify away from investment options at home.

And in China, this isn't just some basic diversification strategy like it is elsewhere around the globe. Instead, it is a direct response to growing fear that the Chinese quality of life is deteriorating. It's also a result of growing frustration that there are so few opportunities to invest at home. And the government isn’t making it easy: China severely restricts capital flows out of its country, stating that it wants the cash to stay domestic for productivity and development purposes.

It also means that those who accrued their wealth through the country’s real estate "boom" really don’t have a way to feel financially secure, as their proceeds must stay within the country, subject to several additional growing bubbles inevitably waiting to pop in China. And it isn’t just for economic reasons - Chinese citizens are also starting to look abroad as a result of the country's authoritarian political climate, heavy pollution and national food safety and vaccine scandals.

Faced with increasingly draconian capital controls, China's citizens are growing desperate to move their money offshore and doing silly things to achieve it. Take Raymond Zhang who was in his early 40s when he paid to join a real estate investment tour of Australia. He was thinking he would diversify his finances to safeguard them.

“It had been arranged for us to visit a dozen property projects in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, including flats, villas and houses with land packages. I loved Australia as soon as I landed there. The [prices of the] properties and living costs were quite affordable for us, not to mention the good air, legal system and education system for my family,” he told the SCMP.

The company that took them overseas asked for a $29,000 deposit, to be returned to 35 days after the investors returned back to China. Zhang says the money was never returned.

Meanwhile, the door to get money out of the country is closing as Beijing has dramatically increased the way it polices efforts to skirt capital controls and even "names and shames" people involved in this effort in order to warn the country's middle class. The State Administration of Foreign Exchange, or SAFE, told the SCMP that at the end of August, there were 23 such cases outstanding. Five of them involved Chinese individuals trying to buy property overseas, others were using "underground banks" to buy property and move large chunks of money out of the country.

To limit capital flight, Beijing grants every individual a mere $50,000 foreign exchange quota, and buying beyond that amount requires special approval from SAFE. In addition to an annual cap on foreign exchange purchases, Beijing also limits individuals’ overseas withdrawals using a Chinese bank card at 100,000 yuan (US$14,400) per year.

* * *

The effect of China's capital flight isn't confined just to the mainland. Those looking to buy real estate outside of the country have negatively impacted many local economies, sometimes causing housing markets to bubble.

In response, Australia has tried to tighten its foreign investment rules in response to Chinese capital inflows. In 2016, the land Down Under even made it illegal for the country's four major banks to lend to foreign property buyers without domestic incomes. New Zealand went so far as to simply prohibit foreigners from buying property altogether because the demand was driving property prices out of the reach of locals. Canada did something similar, canceling its Canadian Federal Immigrant Investor program because of the huge backlog and bubbly real estate markets in places like Vancouver and Toronto.

Hundreds of Chinese "investors" who had put down deposits or bought homes in Malaysia also found themselves scrambling after new Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad stated his country would not allow foreigners to buy residential units in a forthcoming $100 billion real estate project, which is being developed by a Chinese firm.

Laura Zhang, who already bought a home in the project told SCMP: "What Mahathir said has definitely had a negative impact on the demand from and aspirations of middle-class investors from China. We feel we are not welcome here and there is growing uncertainty and risk for our long-stay visas and investments." 

In the United States, the EB-5 investor visa seems to finally have fallen out of favor given how immigration law under President Trump has tightened significantly. Approval for this visa can take up to 10 years and the huge backlog has deterred people from signing up.

None of these developments have quenched Chinese citizens' thirst to move their savings overseas. Raymond Zhang, who lost his nearly $30,000 deposit, concluded by telling the SCMP that even if he cannot get his money back, he still wants to buy property abroad: 

"I’m really worried about the worsening economic situation on the mainland, so that is really my main driver to have another go," he said.

In light of this pent up capital flight, one wonders how long before enterprising Chinese citizens rediscover cryptos and some novel way of bypassing China's firewall, and resume buying and sending cryptocurrencies outside the country. As a reminder, it was Chinese citizens that back in late 2015 first catalyzed the next massive move in bitcoin from $230 all the way up to $20,000 - a move which was subsequently joined by Japan and South Korea - before a global coordinated crackdown was required to halt interest in and purchases of cryptocurrencies.


          It looks like the smash-hit game that paved the way for 'Fortnite: Battle Royale' is finally coming to PlayStation 4 (SNE)      Cache   Translate Page      

playerunknown's battlegrounds

  • It looks like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," the game whose success paved the way for "Fortnite: Battle Royale," is coming to the PlayStation 4.
  • The game hasn't officially been announced, but files for the game are present in the PlayStation 4 game database, and the online PSN store.
  • "PUBG" is one of the most popular action games on PC, but it's been console exclusive to the Xbox One for the past year.

It looks like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," the game that is largely credited with sparking the popularity of battle royale shooting games like "Fortnite: Battle Royale," is set for release on PlayStation 4.

While Bluehole, the game's developer, has yet to confirm a PS4 release date, fans have discovered files on PlayStation 4 consoles and in Sony's online PlayStation Network store. Last month the South Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee leaked ratings for a PlayStation 4 version of the game as well. A representative for the game declined to comment. 

"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," or "PUBG," was officially released on PC in May 2017 and has been console exclusive to the Xbox One since December 2017. The game was in Microsoft's Xbox Game Preview program until September 4th, when version 1.0 was officially released. The mobile version of the game is also one of the most popular video games in China.

Like "Fortnite: Battle Royale" and other games that it inspired, "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" throws 100 players onto a single map with scattered resources. Players need to find weapons and items to defend themselves as the safe areas of the map begin to shrink. The last player or team surviving at the end of the round is the winner.

Though "PUBG" helped pioneer the battle royale genre, the game has seen its star wane, even as rivals like "Fortnite" have skyrocketed to success and challengers like "Call of Duty's" Blackout and "Battlefield V's" Firestorm continue to crop up. and. "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" has a smaller development team than those games and has struggled to keep up with the demands of a massive community.

In November of 2017, "PUBG" was averaging 1.3 million players each day, according to SteamCharts, which tracks players on Steam, the most popular platform for PC games. The average number of daily "PUBG" players has since dwindled to about 450,000 over the last 30 days.

Still, "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" remains one of the three most popular games on Steam by a wide margin, alongside "Dota 2" and "CounterStrike: Global Offensive." 

With "PUBG" available on multiple platforms, players are wondering if Bluehole will be able to implement cross-platform play. Earlier this year "Fortnite" became the first game to offer cross-platform play between the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices. Bluehole has expressed interest in allowing cross-platform play in the past, but nothing has been confirmed.

"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" is currently available on PC and Xbox One for $29.99. This hypothetical PS4 version will likely carry a similar price.

Nearly eight decades after he left the steel mills of Japan, Lee Chun-sik is still driven to tears by the memory of the beatings, burns and forced labour he endured.

He left his native South Korea, which was a colony of Japan from 1910 to 1945, when he was just 17 years old for the promise of being trained as an engineer. But when he arrived in Kamaishi in 1941 he was a virtual prisoner. Lee says he was subject to beatings by Japanese guards if they were unsatisfied with his work, for which he was never paid.

          Currency movements have been small apart from GBP which has swung around on Brexit headlines; US rates are slightly lower; NZD crosses are fairly flat      Cache   Translate Page      

By Jason Wong

It has been an uneventful start to the week for financial markets ahead of a busy week, which includes the US mid-term elections and policy meetings by the Fed, RBA and RBNZ.  Currency movements have been small apart from GBP which has swung around on Brexit headlines.  After recent volatility in equity markets, overnight movements have been insignificant by comparison.  US rates are slightly lower after last week’s big sell-off in Treasuries.

Yesterday there was some interest in President Xi’s address to the Shanghai import Expo. In the event he rattled off policy pledges previously outlined, such as opening up China’s economy, lowering import tariffs and developing free-trade talks with Europe, Japan and South Korea.  He didn’t directly address the trade war with the US, but he denounced “law of the jungle” and “beggar-thy-neighbour” trade practices.  And he didn’t offer any conciliatory remarks or hint of policy shifts that pave the way for successful trade talks when he meets with President Trump later this month.

In economic news, PMI data continue to point to a slowing global growth environment.  China’s Caixin services PMI showed a chunky fall that missed expectations and was at its lowest reading in a year. The UK services PMI also well undershot market expectations, falling to its lowest reading since March.  There was heightened interest in the US ISM non-manufacturing index as last month it rose sharply and triggered higher rates and a strong USD.  The latest reading showed a more modest pullback than expected off that near-record high, suggesting that US growth remained solid, although there was little market reaction to the indicator this month.

US Treasury yields are slightly weaker across the curve with a flattening bias, unwinding a little of the big move up in rates last week.  The 10-year rate is down 2bps to 3.19%.  Yesterday, the NZ rates curve was higher in response to the sell-off in Treasuries on Friday night.  NZ government and swap yields were up in the order of 4-6bps at the long end of the curve.  The 2-year swap rate closed up 1bp to 2.065%, its highest close since the RBNZ’s August MPS.  Funding pressures at the short end of the curve have been more of a factor in this movement over recent sessions than more hawkish policy expectations ahead of Thursday’s MPS.

In currency markets there isn’t a lot to say, with only small changes since the weekend close for most.  The NZD sits this morning at 0.6660, a touch higher from the end of last week with a positive bias in overnight trading.  Recent NZD strength against a backdrop of poorer risk appetite has helped close the gap between spot and our short-term fair value estimate, which sits just over the 0.67 mark.  At the end of last week we saw the NZD tentatively break out of the well-established narrow downward channel, but we think it’s still probably too early to declare that the downward trend is over. We’d need to see a convincing break above previous resistance of 0.6730 to have more confidence that the downward trend over.

While NZD crosses are fairly flat and there isn’t much to say, there has been some price action in GBP.  GBP was bid on the open after a Sunday Times report that PM May had secured private concessions from Brussels that will allow her to keep the whole of Britain in a customs union, avoiding a hard border in Northern Ireland.  However, the positive vibe didn’t last long as the Telegraph dismissed that report and added that UK Brexit Secretary Raab had privately demanded the right to pull Britain out of EU’s Irish backstop after just three months. “If anything, things are now going backwards”, one negotiator said. The Guardian cited unidentified EU officials saying the chances of May reaching a deal on the Irish border that she can sell to Cabinet and Parliament were only “50-50.”  After reaching as high as 1.3065 in early trading yesterday, the currency was as much as 100pips lower during the overnight session but has since settled at 1.3020.

In the day ahead, the RBA is expected to maintain a neutral policy tone at this afternoon’s policy update. Focus will be on the RBA’s interpretation of a surprise sharp fall in the unemployment rate to 5% – whether or not it materially affects the Bank’s outlook for inflation and policy. Tonight’s GDT dairy auction is expected to show a small fall in pricing.

We expect markets to tread water ahead of the US mid-term election results which will start coming through from Wednesday afternoon NZ time.

          Metal Forming Market for Automotive by Technique, Type, Application, Material, Vehicle and Region 2025      Cache   Translate Page      

[160 Pages Report] Metal Forming Market report categorizes the global market for Automotive by Technique (Roll, Stretch, Stamping, Deep Drawing), Type (Hot and Cold), Application (BIW, Chassis, Closure), Material (Steel, Aluminum), Vehicle (ICE, Electric, and Hybrid) and Region

Northbrook, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- The metal forming market for automotive was valued at USD 217.69 billion in 2017 and is projected to grow to USD 269.01 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 2.83% during the forecast period. The global metal forming market for automotive is booming because the rising vehicle production along with stringent emission norms and fuel economy regulations are driving the demand for lightweight materials in the automotive industry. Other than this, new metal forming techniques such as hot forming and hydroforming are making metal-formed components better and stronger.

The growing vehicle production is one of the major driving forces behind metal forming a market for automotive. In 2017, according to OICA, the passenger car production in the Asia Oceania region was around 44.96 million units. China, Japan, and India had a share of 55.2%, 18.6%, and 8.8% of the passenger car production in Asia respectively. Passenger cars are, therefore, estimated to be the largest segment of this market.

Aluminum is expected to show the fastest growth over the forecast period, by material type. It is rapidly replacing steel in many automotive applications like a body in white and chassis. The usage rate (%) of aluminum for forming applications is higher in Europe and North America when compared with that in Asia Oceania. The consumer spending power and vehicle costs are higher in countries such as the US and Germany, as compared to the developing economies. Thus, automakers are increasing the use of expensive lightweight materials such as aluminum, which helps to reduce the overall vehicle weight, thus improving performance and fuel efficiency. However, it is 35-40% costlier than steel, because of which it has a low penetration in Asia Oceania.

By techniques type, stamping is expected to be the largest market over the forecast period. Stamping is one of the most common forming techniques used in the automotive industry. In the automotive industry, many structural components are manufactured through the stamping process. These include closures (doors, hood, and truck) and components of BIW such as A pillar, B pillar, cross beam, and roof liner. Because of such a wide application and is the most cost-effective forming technique, stamping is expected to hold the largest market.

The cold forming market is estimated to be the largest market in forming type segment and is expected to maintain its position in the metal forming market for automotive. Cold forming is one of the most conventional manufacturing processes in which components are formed using different types of forming techniques at room temperature and do not require any additional handling and carrying. Because of this, the overall cost of the cold forming process is low as compared to the hot forming process. Owing to such cost advantages, cold forming is still the major preference of OEMs across the globe.

Because of large vehicle production in the Asia Oceania region, it is estimated to be the largest metal forming market for automotive over the forecast period. China, India, Japan, South Korea, and others are considered under the Asia Oceania region for this study. China is the largest contributor in terms of vehicle production for the Asia Oceania region. Out of the total vehicle production, China contributed approximately 24.9% in 2017. Japan is the second largest vehicle producing country and contributes approximately 8.4% to the global vehicle production. In addition to vehicle production, the trend of vehicle lightweighting is also expected to drive this market.

The metal forming market for automotive is dominated by manufacturers such as Magna (Canada), Benteler (Germany), Tower International (UK), Toyota Boshoku (Japan), Aisin Seiki (Japan). Most of the manufacturers are undertaking inorganic developments such as expansion, joint venture, and supply contract. Manufacturers should invest in new products development as it helps in the expansion of the product portfolio. For example, Kirchhoff Automotive developed a hybrid battery housing for electric vehicles. The hybrid crash-proof battery housing is made from a combination of steel and aluminum.

South Korean artist Park Seo-Bo is credited with creating Korean modernism by embodying East Asian views of nature and art in his monochrome paintings. He delves into questions of what painting is, such as “Why paint?” and “How to paint?” in connection with contemporary society, often modifying his technique and presenting a new model of Korean painting. In his Ecriture series, French for ‘writing’ or ‘inscribing,’ he takes up a way of painting that is akin to the exercise of writing. Over the course of his long career, Park has experimented with different materials and techniques. While the initial works from the Ecriture series in the early 1970s largely featured lines drawn repeatedly in pencil on a painted surface, those presented in this exhibition maintain the formal elements that appear in his works since the 1980s, when he began using hanji, the traditional

          Global markets waver on worries over US-China trade dispute      Cache   Translate Page      

SINGAPORE — Global stock markets were mixed on Monday as investors watched developments in the U.S-China trade war and the upcoming U.S. midterm elections.

KEEPING SCORE: Britain's FTSE 100 rose 0.4 percent to 7,125 while the CAC 40 in France gained 0.2 percent to 5,112. Germany's DAX rose 0.2 percent to 11,540. Wall Street was positioned for a mixed open, with Dow futures down 0.3 percent and S&P 500 futures up 0.2 percent.

ASIA'S DAY: Japan's Nikkei 225 index fell 1.6 percent at 21,898.99 and South Korea's Kospi dropped 0.9 percent to 2,076.92. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index slipped 2.1 percent to 25,934.39. The Shanghai Composite index shed 0.4 percent to 2,665.43. The S&P ASX/200 in Australia fell 0.5 percent to 5,818.10. Shares fell in Taiwan, Singapore and Thailand but rose in the Philippines.

U.S.-CHINA TRADE: Chinese President Xi Jinping Xi promised Monday to reduce costs for importers and raise consumer spending power at a high-profile trade fair in Shanghai. But Xi did not address an escalating dispute over Beijing's technology policy. Global markets had risen Friday after Chinese officials and President Donald Trump said a phone conversation between the two leaders had gone well. But fears resurfaced that the bullish talk might have been aimed at scoring political points just ahead of U.S. midterm elections.

ANALYST'S TAKE: "Investors are far too wary of an empty promise, but ultimately, they will need to decide how much of President Trump's olive branch to China was a ploy to boost equity markets ahead of the U.S. midterm elections on Tuesday and how much of it is a bona fide attempt to reach an agreement," Stephen Innes of OANDA said in a commentary.

BREXIT DEAL: The office of British Prime Minister Theresa May has dismissed reports the country is close to reaching a divorce agreement with the European Union. In particular, Downing Street said a Sunday Times report, which claimed the two sides had agreed on future customs arrangements at the Ireland-Northern Ireland border, was "speculation." Officials have said negotiators are on the brink of a deal, which could be reached this month.

ENERGY: Oil prices fell as the U.S. defended waivers given to eight unidentified nations, which will be able to continue importing Iranian oil after the re-imposition of sanctions. Benchmark U.S. crude dropped 15 cents to $62.99 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It lost 55 cents to $63.14 a barrel in New York on Friday. Brent crude, used to price international oils, was up 7 cents at $72.90 per barrel. The contract shed 6 cents to $72.83 a barrel in London.

CURRENCIES: The dollar rose to 113.27 yen from 113.19 yen. The euro slipped to $1.1369 from $1.1387.

          US State Sec Pompeo's meeting with North Korea delayed.... indefinitely      Cache   Translate Page      

In a very quiet off-hours announcement, in the middle of US mid-term election counting, the US State Department has issued a statement that State Secretary Mike Pompeo's planned meeting with North Korean Leaders in New York tomorrow has been postponed indefinitely.

Pompeo was slated to meet ringleaders within Kim Jong Un's government on Thursday in order to continue hammering out something resembling a deal between the two nations as Trump's administration desperately tries to play catch-up as North Korea makes agreements with a wide variety of countries including South Korea, Russia, and China, and the State Department has announced that the North Korea-Pompeo meeting will be rescheduled when "our respective schedules permit".

          Pompeo exempts Iran's Chabahar Port from sanctions      Cache   Translate Page      

[USA], Nov 7 (ANI): United States Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has approved sanctions exemption for the development of Iran's Chabahar Port, which is related to Afghanistan's economic development and reconstruction assistance.

In a statement, a US State Department spokesperson told ANI, "After extensive consideration, the Secretary (Pompeo) has provided for an exception from the imposition of certain sanctions under the Iran Freedom and Counter-Proliferation Act of 2012 (IFCA) with respect to the development of Chabahar Port and the construction of an associated railway and for the shipment of non-sanctionable goods through the Port for Afghanistan's use, as well as Afghanistan's continued imports of Iranian petroleum products.?"

The spokesperson added that the exception is related to the reconstruction assistance and economic development for Afghanistan.

"These activities are vital for the ongoing support of Afghanistan's growth and humanitarian relief," the spokesperson said.

"The President's South Asia strategy underscores our ongoing support of Afghanistan's economic growth and development as well as our close partnership with India. We seek to build on our close relationships with both countries as we execute a policy of maximum pressure to change the Iranian regime's destabilising policies in the region and beyond," the spokesperson added.

India considers the Chabahar Port a key strategic asset, giving it access to land-locked Afghanistan while bypassing Pakistan. The sanctions, which came into effect on Monday, had threatened New Delhi's ability to acquire financing for the port's development.

The Chabahar Port complex is expected to pave the way for millions of dollars in trade and is being developed as part of a new transportation corridor for land-locked Afghanistan. Both India and Iran had signed an agreement worth USD 85 million to develop the strategic port in south-eastern Iran.

On November 5, the Donald Trump administration had imposed the "toughest-ever" sanctions on Iran's banking, energy and shipping industries, in a move aimed at altering the "behaviour" of the country's regime.

The US will also penalise countries for importing oil and foreign companies that do business with certain Iranian entities. However, it granted waivers for oil sanctions to eight countries -- China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey. (ANI)

Netanyahu secretly met Omani FM in Germany — report-Israeli TV says February talks helped pave way for PM’s visit to Muscat; discussion said to have focused on Iran, advancing bilateral ties-By TOI staff-6 November 2018

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met secretly with Oman’s foreign minister in February, helping lay the foundations for the premier’s visit to the Gulf sultanate last month, Israeli television reported Friday,According to Channel 10 news, Netanyahu’s meeting with Yusuf bin Alawi was held on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, a major gathering of top political and defense leaders from across the world.The meeting was put together by Mossad head Yossi Cohen who played the lead role in the contacts between Israel and Oman, the report said.The report, which cited an unnamed senior Israeli official, said the meeting was the first between Israeli and Omani political figures since the Mossad-led outreach to Oman began in April 2017.The official told the network Netanyahu and bin Alawi discussed Iran and advancing ties between the countries.Like most Arab states, Israel and Oman do not have formal diplomatic relations, though officials from the two countries have previously met.Netanyahu’s surprise visit to Muscat in October to meet with Omani Sultan Qaboos bin Said was the first of its kind by an Israeli leader in over two decades and highlighted the growing thaw between Israel and Gulf states.The Prime Minister’s Office said after the trip Netanyahu and his wife Sara were invited to the Omani capital by Qaboos “after lengthy contacts between the two countries.”Israel and Oman said in a joint statement the two leaders discussed “ways to advance the peace process in the Middle East as well as several matters of joint interest regarding the achievement of peace and stability in the Middle East.”Though neither country directly mentioned Iran in statements after the meeting, analysts noted Oman could serve as a backdoor channel to Tehran.Though a member of the Saudi-dominated Gulf Cooperation Council, Oman has stayed out of the rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia and often acted as a regional mediator. It notably hosted secret talks between US and Iranian officials that helped lead to the 2015 nuclear deal curbing Tehran’s nuclear program, an agreement strongly opposed by Netanyahu.The Channel 10 report said neither Israel nor Oman informed the United States of their warming diplomatic ties. The meeting between Netanyahu and Qaboos was welcomed by the White House, with an envoy for US President Donald Trump saying it was a “helpful step for our peace efforts.”Following the meeting in Oman, bin Alawi urged other Middle East states to accept Israel and said the country would help promote peace efforts between Israel and the Palestinians.Speaking at the same conference, Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa expressed backing for Oman’s efforts to promote Israeli-Palestinian peace, and Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said peace talks would help normalize diplomatic ties between Israel and the Arab world, according to Reuters.Bin Alawi this week travelled to the West Bank city of Ramallah to update Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas on the meeting between Qaboos and Netanyahu.Palestinian officials have largely remained silent on Netanyahu’s trip to Muscat, though top negotiator Saeb Erekat said the Arab world should remain committed to the Arab Peace Initiative.The proposal offers a normalization of diplomatic ties and a formal end to the Israeli-Arab conflict in exchange for the establishment of a Palestinian state on the so-called 1967 lines and a “just” solution to the refugee issue.Israel has previously offered support for some of the initiative’s tenets but balked at others pertaining to refugees and returning the Golan Heights to Syrian control.

Khashoggi killing: Erdogan accuses ‘highest levels’ of Saudi gov’t-Turkish president criticizes authorities in Riyadh for refusing to answer key questions about journalist’s murder-By AFP-NOV 6,18

ANKARA, Turkey — Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the order to murder Jamal Khashoggi came from “the highest levels” of the Saudi government Friday as he promised no let-up in the hunt for his killers.A month on from Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Erdogan said he did “not believe for a second” that King Salman was to blame.But he pointedly failed to absolve Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of responsibility for unleashing a “death squad” against the outspoken Saudi journalist whose death has badly tainted the kingdom’s de facto ruler.And in an editorial for Khashoggi’s former employer, The Washington Post, Erdogan accused authorities in Riyadh of refusing to answer key questions about the murder, despite their arrest of 18 suspects a fortnight ago.Erdogan’s comments came shortly after one of his top lieutenants charged that Khashoggi’s dismembered body was “dissolved” in the consulate as part of an effort to leave no trace of the killing.“Over the course of the past month, Turkey has moved heaven and earth to shed light on all aspects of this case. As a result of our efforts, the world has learned that Khashoggi was killed in cold blood by a death squad, and it has been established that his murder was premeditated,” Erdogan wrote in The Post.“We know that the perpetrators are among the 18 suspects detained in Saudi Arabia. We also know that those individuals came to carry out their orders: Kill Khashoggi and leave. Finally, we know that the order to kill Khashoggi came from the highest levels of the Saudi government.”But he said his government would keep asking other questions “the Saudi authorities have refused to answer”, such as the whereabouts of Khashoggi’s body and who ordered his assassination.The murder of the royal insider-turned-dissident has provoked widespread outrage and sharp criticism from Washington, usually the staunchest of allies.While President Donald Trump has ruled out halting arms deal with Riyadh as a punishment, his administration has effectively withdrawn support for the Saudi-led coalition’s war in Yemen in a stark illustration of the cooling of ties.Addressing mourners at a memorial service in Washington on Friday, the murdered journalist’s fiancee called on Trump to back Turkey’s efforts to investigate his death.“I would like to send this message to Mr Trump: I would like him to support Turkey’s legal efforts in trying to bring light to the situation and to discover the whereabouts of his body,” Hatice Cengiz said in a recorded message.Turkey’s chief prosecutor said this week that Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the consulate and also confirmed the body was dismembered.Yasin Aktay, an advisor to Erdogan, hinted in an article published on Friday that the body may even have been destroyed in acid.“We now see that it wasn’t just cut up, they got rid of the body by dissolving it,” an official in Turkey’s ruling party, he told the Hurriyet newspaper.“According to the latest information we have, the reason they cut up the body is it was easier to dissolve it.”A Turkish official has previously told The Post that “biological evidence” found in the consulate garden indicated the body was likely disposed of near the murder scene.Saudi authorities have denied Turkish police permission to search a well in the garden, but allowed them to take water samples for analysis, according to local reports.The murder has strained the decades-old alliance between the United States and Saudi Arabia, with Trump calling it “one of the worst cover-ups in history”.Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose country shares Riyadh’s hostility to Iran, condemned the murder but stressed the need for stability in Saudi Arabia.“It is very important for the stability of the world, for the region and for the world, that Saudi Arabia remain stable,” Netanyahu told reporters Friday on a visit to Bulgaria.After initially insisting Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, then saying he died in a brawl during an interview gone wrong, the Saudi regime admitted he was killed, blaming a “rogue operation”.The crown prince has denounced the murder as “repulsive” and denied any involvement.

Toronto police release remains of Bruce McArthur's alleged victims to families-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-November 6, 2018

Toronto police say some of the men believed to be victims of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur can now be laid to rest.Acting Insp. Hank Idsinga says investigators have released some of the remains of the eight men found buried at and near a Toronto home where McArthur used to work as a landscaper.Idsinga declined to say exactly how many sets of remains have been released, calling the effort a "work in progress" that he hopes concludes "sooner than later."McArthur, 67, stands accused of killing eight men, most of whom had with ties to Toronto's gay community between 2010 and 2017.They are: Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40, Andrew Kinsman, 49, Selim Esen, 44, and Abdulbasir Faizi, 44. Bottom row, from left to right: Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, 37, Dean Lisowick, 47, Soroush Mahmudi, 50, and Majeed Kayhan, 58.Investigators spent months recovering and identifying the remains, which were found in planters and a ravine near the home.Police also sifted through past cases and combed other properties as part of their probe, but Idsinga has previously said that there is currently no evidence to suggest any additional alleged victims.

THE FIRST JUDGEMENT OF THE EARTH STARTED WITH WATER-IT ONLY MAKES SENSE THE LAST GENERATION WILL BE HAVING FLOODING
GENESIS 7:6-12
6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
9 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.
10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

B.C. wildfire action plan focuses on collaboration with First Nations-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-November 6, 2018

After two record-breaking wildfire seasons, the B.C. government released a new plan this week to improve emergency management.A large focus of the action plan is working with First Nation communities, said Doug Donaldson, B.C.'s Minister of Forests. These communities can provide resources in several ways, including their knowledge of burn areas and manpower.The plan commits to creating a new dedicated First Nations coordination operational staff with opportunities for First Nations and emergency managers to discuss strategies, and to provide training and public education resources to better support the needs of First Nation communities.The new action plan includes strategies to anticipate areas most at risk for fire, and to organize multiple resources quickly during the peak of wildfire season."When fires actually broke out in nearby communities we would have the incident management team come in and right away meet with First Nations… to incorporate local knowledge into the fire action plan,"  Donaldson told All Points West host Robyn Burns."In the past, those meetings would take perhaps seven days to get underway."Training communities-Communities in wildfire-affected areas will be trained in prevention and safety practices through the Community Resiliency Investment Program to mitigate risk of damage to homes, according to Donaldson.Prescribed burns are also included in the report and he said they plan to make more progress with this practice than in the past."We're looking at a multi-year prescribed burning project, and that includes assessing the training required both within our own staff… but also increased capacity within communities to be able to do that," he said.Recovery of the land and local economies are outlined in the report with plans for reforestation, expedited cutting permits for salvageable timber, and ensuring the annual allowable cut is proportional to the affected supply.With files from All Points West.

Iran’s Khamenei: Trump has ‘disgraced’ US prestige-Lashing out at Washington days before sanctions to be reimposed, supreme leader says America is in decline and will be the ultimate loser against Islamic republic-By Agencies-TOI-NOV 6,18

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Saturday that US President Donald Trump has “disgraced” US prestige and would be the ultimate loser from renewing sanctions on the Islamic republic.“This new US president… has disgraced the remnant of America’s prestige and that of liberal democracy. America’s hard power, that is to say their economic and military power, is declining too,” he said on his Persian Twitter account, quoting a speech in Tehran.A defiant Khamenei dismissed the renewed US sanctions — including an oil embargo — that take effect on Monday.“The challenge between the US and Iran has lasted for 40 years so far and the US has made various efforts against us: military, economic and media warfare,” he said.“There’s a key fact here: in this 40-year challenge, the defeated is the US and the victorious is the Islamic republic.”On Friday, the Trump administration restored US sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, but carved out exemptions for eight countries that can still import oil from the Islamic Republic without penalty.The sanctions take effect Monday and cover Iran’s shipping, financial and energy sectors. They are the second batch the administration has re-imposed since Trump withdrew from the landmark accord in May.The 2015 deal, one of former president Barack Obama’s biggest diplomatic achievements, gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program, which many believed it was using to develop atomic weapons. Trump repeatedly denounced the agreement as the “worst ever” negotiated by the United States and said it gave Iran too much in return for too little.In a statement issued Friday night, Trump said, “Our objective is to force the regime into a clear choice: either abandon its destructive behavior or continue down the path toward economic disaster.”Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the sanctions are “aimed at fundamentally altering the behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” He has issued a list of 12 demands that Iran must meet to get the sanctions lifted that include an end to its support for terrorism and military engagement in Syria and a halt to nuclear and ballistic missile development. He said US allies such as Turkey, Italy, India, Japan and South Korea will receive temporary waivers allowing them to continue to import Iranian petroleum products as they move to end such imports entirely.But proponents as well as the other parties to the deal — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the European Union — have vehemently defended it. The Europeans have mounted a drive to save the agreement without the US, fearing that the new sanctions will drive Iran to pull out and resume all of its nuclear work.Friday’s announcement comes just days before congressional midterm elections in the US, allowing Trump to highlight his decision to withdraw from the deal — a move that was popular among Republicans.Washington says it wants a new deal with Iran, curtailing its regional interventions and missile program — demands which have been flatly rejected by Tehran.

Iran inaugurates production line of local fighter jets ahead of US sanctions-Defense minister says domestically made Kowsar aircraft symbolizes Islamic Republic’s battle against ‘global ‘arrogance’ led by the US-By TOI staff-NOV 6,18

Iran on Saturday inaugurated the production line of its domestically produced fighter jet, a day after the Trump administration announced the reimposition of remaining US sanctions on Tehran to ramp up economic pressure on the Islamic Republic.Defense Minister Gen. Amir Hatami said the production line highlighted the capabilities of Iranian experts despite “sanctions by enemies,” according to state-run news outlet Press TV.Hatami said inaugurating production of the Kowsar fighter was “the very symbol of fighting the [global] arrogance and standing against the excessive demands of the imperial system, which is being led by the Great Satan, the United States.”Speaking at an industrial complex in the Isfahan province, Hatami added that the “fourth-generation” fighter, with “advanced maneuvering capability” and multi-purpose radar would be service the entire Iranian Air Force “soon.”Hatamui’s announcement comes days before the US sanctions lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal were set to be reimposed on the Islamic Republic. The sanctions take effect Monday and cover Iran’s shipping, financial and energy sectors. They are the second batch the administration has reimposed since Trump withdrew from the international accord in May.Iran promotion of HESA Kowsar upgrade assembly line; extending service life for the F-5E/F Tiger II type aircraft, originally built by Northrop and exported to Iran during the mid 1970's. pic.twitter.com/lMDVJ496MS— Mark Pyruz (@INTELonIRAN) November 3, 2018-The US has sold hundreds of billions of dollars of weapons to Iran’s regional rivals, and says the reimposition of the crippling sanctions is a bid to force Tehran to end its military deployments and support for militias in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, and elsewhere in the region.Iran unveiled the Kowsar fighter in August, but analysts quickly noted similarities between the Iranian jet and the American F-5 fighter, made by Northrop-Grumman in the 1950s, and expressed doubts that the plane was actually new.At the time, state TV said the Kowsar had already been through successful testing and showed footage of the plane on the runway, though the broadcast stopped before the plane took off.The F-5 was sold to Iran in the 1960s and first entered operation in the Iranian Imperial Air Force in 1965. In the West, the F-5 line of jets is mostly used for training purposes.Iran has already used the F-5 platform — and, some observers suggest, actual parts from its aging fleet of non-flying F-5s — to develop its newer jets. The Saeqeh, first flown in 2004, was one such plane.In 2013, Iran unveiled its “first,” domestically-made fighter jet, the Qaher F313, but it was quickly derided by numerous experts in the West who said the plane was actually a plastic model, and was unable to fly.

European signatories to Iran nuclear deal condemn new US sanctions-France, UK, Germany and EU ‘deeply regret’ American measures, call accord ‘essential for the security of Europe, the region and the whole world’-By AFP-5 November 2018

PARIS — France, Germany, Britain and the European Union issued a joint condemnation Friday of the US move to place fresh sanctions on the Iranian economy, vowing to protect European companies doing “legitimate” business with Tehran.“We deeply regret the reimposition of sanctions by the United States stemming from their withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” the statement said in reference to the hard-fought 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.Struck between world powers and Tehran after years of fraught negotiations, the deal was aimed at limiting Iran’s nuclear capabilities in exchange for sanctions relief.But US President Donald Trump announced in May that he was walking away from the deal and would reimpose sanctions, leaving the EU scrambling to protect companies that have forged trade links with Iran.Friday’s statement from EU nations defended the deal as “essential for the security of Europe, the region and the whole world.”“Our objective is to protect European economic actors involved in legitimate commercial trade with Iran,” it added.Europe will also seek to “maintain financial channels operational with Iran and to ensure the continuation of Iranian oil and gas exports,” it said.US officials said Friday that Washington was adding 700 individuals and entities to its Iran blacklist and pressuring the global SWIFT banking network to cut off Tehran when expanded sanctions are put in place next week.US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the sanctions were aimed at getting Tehran to halt its nuclear activities and what the US says is broad support for terrorism in the region.The EU says 12 consecutive reports from the International Atomic Energy Agency show that Iran has stuck to the terms of the deal.

US reimposes all sanctions on Iran lifted under nuclear deal-Pompeo says new measures aimed at forcing Tehran to give up ‘its well-documented outlaw activities,’ grants temporary waivers to 8 countries-By Matthew Lee-TOI-5 November 2018

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration on Friday announced the reimposition of all US sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, ramping up economic pressure on the Islamic Republic as President Donald Trump completed the unraveling of what had been one of his predecessor’s signature foreign policy achievements.The sanctions, which will take effect on Monday, cover Iran’s shipping, financial and energy sectors and are the second batch the administration has reimposed since Trump withdrew from the landmark accord in May. The rollback ends US participation in the nuclear deal, which now hangs in the balance as Iran no longer enjoys any relief from sanctions imposed by the world’s largest economy.Shortly after the announcement, Trump tweeted a movie poster-like image of himself walking out of what appears to be fog with the phrase “Sanctions are Coming, November 5.”With limited exceptions, the sanctions will hit countries that do not stop importing Iranian oil and foreign firms that do business with blacklisted Iranian entities, including its central bank, a number of private financial institutions, and state-run port and shipping firms, as well as hundreds of individual Iranian officials.pic.twitter.com/nk2vKvHuaL— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 2, 2018-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the sanctions are “aimed at fundamentally altering the behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” He has issued a list of 12 demands that Iran must meet if it wants the sanctions lifted. Those include ending support for terrorism and military engagement in Syria and a complete halt to its nuclear and ballistic missile development.“Our ultimate aim is to compel Iran to permanently abandon its well-documented outlaw activities and behave as a normal country,” Pompeo told reporters in a conference call with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. “Maximum pressure means maximum pressure.”Pompeo said eight nations will receive temporary waivers allowing them to continue to import Iranian petroleum products for a limited period as they move to end such imports entirely. He said those countries, which other officials said would include US allies such as Turkey, Italy, India, Japan and South Korea, had made efforts to eliminate their imports but could not complete the task by Monday.The waivers, expected to be announced Monday, will be valid for six months, during which time the importing country can buy Iranian oil but must deposit Iran’s revenue in an escrow account. Iran can spend the money but only on a narrow range of humanitarian items. Pompeo said two of the eight countries would wind down imports to zero within weeks.Mnuchin said 700 more Iranian companies and people would be added to the sanctions rolls. Those, he said, would include more than 300 that had not been included under previous sanctions.“We are sending a very clear message with our maximum pressure campaign: that the US intends to aggressively enforce our sanctions,” he said.Iran hawks in Congress and elsewhere were likely to be disappointed in the sanctions as they had been pushing for no oil import waivers as well as the complete disconnection of Iran from the main international financial messaging network known as SWIFT.One group that has been highly critical of the deal welcomed the new sanctions but said there should be no exceptions.“We encourage the Trump administration to fulfill the promise of a maximum pressure campaign — no exceptions — until Iran permanently and verifiably changes its behavior,” United Against a Nuclear Iran said in a statement. “Oil and gas firms, including those from friendly countries like India, South Korea and Japan, should not be granted sanctions waivers. Similarly, financial entities — including SWIFT — must sever ties with Iranian banks and financial institutions.”Mnuchin defended the decision to allow some Iranian banks to remain connected to SWIFT, saying that the Belgium-based firm had been warned that it will face penalties if sanctioned institutions are permitted to use it. And, he said that US regulators would be watching closely Iranian transactions that use SWIFT to ensure any that run afoul of US sanctions would be punished.Pompeo, meanwhile, defended the oil waivers, saying US efforts to cut Iran’s petroleum revenue had already been successful. He noted that since May, when the US began to press countries to stop buying Iranian oil, Iran’s exports had dropped by more than 1 million barrels per day.Pompeo and Mnuchin both said the sanctions will have exceptions for humanitarian purchases.The 2015 nuclear deal, one of former president Barack Obama’s signature foreign policy achievements, gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program, which many believed it was using to develop atomic weapons. Trump repeatedly denounced the agreement as the “worst ever” negotiated by the United States and vowed to withdraw from it during the 2016 presidential campaign.Trump and other critics of the deal said it gave Iran too much in return for too little, allowed Iran to gradually resume nuclear activity that could eventually be used for weapons development and did not address any of the country’s other problematic activities.Obama-era officials as well as the other parties to the deal — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the European Union — have vehemently defended it. The Europeans have mounted a drive to save the agreement from the US withdrawal, fearing that the new sanctions will drive Iran to pull out and resume all of its nuclear work.

New defence for Infowars in copyright case? "Pepe the Toad"-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-November 5, 2018

The internet trolls who turned Pepe the Frog into a hate symbol may be disappointed to hear a new claim about the cartoon character's origins, courtesy of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' Infowars website .Infowars' attorneys claim in a court filing Thursday that Pepe the Frog creator Matt Furie based his character on a "pre-existing, strikingly similar" Argentine cartoon character named "El Sapo Pepe," or "Pepe the Toad."That's a new defence for Infowars against a copyright infringement lawsuit that Furie filed in March over the site's sales of a poster copying the character.Infowars' attorneys argue Furie could be precluded from asserting any copyright interest in his creation if Pepe the Frog is an "unauthorized derivative work" based on Pepe the Toad. Or it could "at least severely the scope of copyright protection in the character," they wrote."You've got to ask yourself if Mr. Furie's work is truly original," Infowars attorney Marc Randazza said during a telephone interview Friday. "I think it's at least worth taking a closer look."Louis Tompros, one of Furie's attorneys, said the California-based cartoonist had never heard of "El Sapo Pepe" before receiving a letter from Infowars's attorneys about it."So, it definitely did not inspire his creation of Pepe,' Tompros wrote in an email Friday.A federal judge set a July 2019 trial date for the lawsuit Furie filed against Infowars in Los Angeles.It was the second such case that Furie has brought as part of a legal campaign to reclaim his creation.Infowars' website is the online platform for right-wing radio host Jones. Furie's lawsuit says he didn't authorize the site to sell a poster that depicts the anthropomorphic frog alongside images of Jones, President Donald Trump, far-right agitator Milo Yiannopoulos and other right-wing figures.Jones has described the lawsuit as a "publicity stunt" and said he views it as an expression of political speech protected by the First Amendment."My listeners understand this is all frivolous," Jones told The Associated Press in March.Infowars was selling the Pepe-adorned "MAGA" poster for $29.95 and says it was created by "renowned artist and patriot" Jon Allen. Jones said Infowars has sold about 1,000 of the posters but added that it's hardly one of the site's most popular items.Furie's "chill frog-dude" debuted in a 2006 comic book called "Boy's Club" and became a popular canvas for benevolent internet memes. But the user-generated mutations grew increasingly hateful and ubiquitous more than a year before the 2016 presidential election, when Furie's creation become an online mascot for white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other right-wing extremists.The Anti-Defamation League branded Pepe as a hate symbol in September 2016 and promoted Furie's efforts to reclaim the character.Twitter banned Jones and Infowars from the social media platform earlier this year for abusive behaviour . Jones has been sued by targets of his conspiracy theories, including parents of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012. Jones questioned whether the shooting rampage was a hoax.Michael Kunzelman, The Associated Press.

Entering a modal-UN chief warns of famine in Yemen, urges halt to violence-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-November 5, 2018

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned Friday that Yemen could face "the worst famine we have seen in decades" and urged the country's warring parties to immediately halt the violence.The UN chief told reporters "the urgency of the humanitarian crisis leaves no room for complacency" and the "building wave of momentum" for peace must be seized.UN humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock warned last week that "there is a clear and present danger of an imminent and great big famine engulfing Yemen" that could affect 14 million people — half of the country's population.The conflict began in 2014 when Houthi Shia rebels toppled the internationally recognized government. A Saudi-led coalition allied with the government has been fighting the Houthis since 2015.Guterres said more and more countries are engaged in helping create conditions for the warring parties to understand the need to cease hostilities and engage in serious negotiations.He urged the coalition and the Houthis "to overcome obstacles and resolve differences through dialogue" at UN facilitated talks later this month.Guterres stressed that "violence must stop everywhere — with an immediate halt around critical infrastructure and densely populated areas.""My objective is to appeal to the parties to the conflict to understand that there is an opportunity that must be seized, and to say that the humanitarian situation is so dire that if that doesn't happen" the world will have to deal with a famine in Yemen next year, he said."I must say, I hope the voice of reason will prevail," Guterres said.

Khashoggi crisis may tip Middle East power balance towards Turkey-October 2 killing inside Saudi consulate in Istanbul, by a team sent from Riyadh, has already severely tarnished Arab state’s reputation-By Ezzedine SAID-TOI-NOV 5,18

ISTANBUL, Turkey (AFP) — The murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi could alter the power dynamic in the Middle East by strengthening Turkey’s influence at Saudi Arabia’s expense as they compete for leadership of the Islamic world, analysts say.This certainly appears to be the goal of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the main regional supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, which Saudi Arabia and its allies Egypt and the United Arab Emirates consider a terrorist group.The killing inside the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul by a team sent from Riyadh on October 2 has already severely tarnished Saudi Arabia’s global reputation.But it is the potential involvement of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, the oil-rich Gulf nation’s de facto leader known by his initials MBS, that could permanently damage Riyadh’s influence in the region.After initially insisting Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, then saying he died in a brawl, the Saudi regime finally stated he was killed by a “rogue operation” and arrested 18 suspects, some with links to the crown prince.Analysts say Erdogan could use the ensuing crisis to weaken the 33-year-old prince, even potentially leading to the royal family removing him from power — though that seems unlikely.“The killing of Khashoggi has proven to be a golden opportunity for President Erdogan to pressure Saudi Arabia and work towards presenting Turkey as the new leader of the Muslim world,” said Lina Khatib, director of Middle East and North Africa Programme at Chatham House.“The Khashoggi crisis is a big geo-political gamble for Turkey and so far it looks like it is playing the game masterfully. But Turkey alone will not be able to push for the removal of MBS. The ball lies in the American court,” she added.For Erdogan, promoting the Muslim Brotherhood — which Saudi Arabia has sought to marginalize in the Arab world and which was ousted from power and brutally repressed in Egypt in 2013 by current President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi — is at the heart of this power struggle.The Turkish leader could also try to extract concessions from Riyadh for its ally Qatar, facing a Saudi blockade backed by the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt since 2017.“I think that Erdogan sees this as an opportunity to push back against a triple entente in the Middle East that opposes his policies. That triple entente is composed of MBS, MBZ’s (Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan) UAE and Sissi’s Egypt,” said Soner Cagaptay, director of the Turkey Research Program at the Washington Institute.“These three countries, all Arabs, oppose Erdogan’s policies of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. Now Erdogan sees a golden opportunity because MBS is vulnerable.”But Sinan Ulgen, president of the Centre for Economics and Foreign Policy, said “it remains to be seen whether Ankara can continue to leverage this conjuncture and turn it into a permanent advantage raising Turkey’s regional influence to the detriment of Saudi Arabia”.Nicholas Heras, an analyst at the Center for a New American Security, said the Khashoggi case was the “latest chapter in Turkey and Saudi Arabia’s ongoing contest over which country is better” to lead the Muslim world.“Erdogan clearly seems to believe that he can use the Khashoggi crisis as a way to cut Prince Mohammad bin Salman, and by extension, Saudi Arabia, down to size,” Heras added.By not directly pointing the blame at the crown prince over Khashoggi, Erdogan is seeking to keep him under pressure, according to Karim Bitar of the Paris-based French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs think-tank.“Erdogan knows that he still has ammunition that could weaken MBS in the international arena so basically he is rolling the dice these days trying to figure out how to maximise his profit after this huge Saudi blunder,” he told AFP.While the Muslim Brotherhood is important to Turkey, the West — especially the United States — is wary of the group and wants to focus any pressure on the crown prince towards ending the Yemen war and lifting the blockade on Qatar, the experts said.“I expect the blockade on Doha will likely come to an end in the near future and the Saudis find a way to support the UN’s efforts in Yemen,” said Steven Cook of the Council on Foreign Relations.Bitar noted that the US administration relies on Prince Mohammed’s support for any possible peace plan for the Israel-Palestinian conflict as well as containing Iran, long a Saudi foe.Washington could also push the crown prince towards “a rapprochement with Israel and to maintain a hawkish line towards Iran”, Bitar added.

Emerging Gaza ceasefire to significantly ease blockade — report-Lebanese daily says Egypt prepared to slash 70% of its own border restrictions under 3-year truce deal; Israel will be required to grant work permits and expand fishing zone-By TOI staff-NOV 5,18

An emerging cease-fire agreement aimed at calming months of violence on the Israel-Gaza border will last for three years and see a significant easing of the blockade on the Hamas-controlled territory, Lebanon’s Al-Akbar newspaper reported Saturday.According to the report, the deal being brokered by Egypt stipulates a gradual stop to the ongoing, Hamas-orchestrated violent border protests and maritime flotillas over the next two months. In addition, Hamas will be obligated to punish Gazans caught engaging in violent demonstrating along the border with Israel.In return, Egypt will permanently open its Rafah border crossing and lift 70 percent of its blockade on the Hamas-controlled territory, the report said, citing officials familiar with the emerging agreement.Al-Akbar said the deal would require Israel to grant 5,000 work permits for Gazans, and expand the Strip’s fishing zone from nine to 14 nautical miles.Israel had no immediate comment on the report.In addition, the paper reported the Palestinian Authority would pay 80% of the salaries of Hamas officials in Gaza, and would not object to Qatar bankrolling those wages for at least six months, like it has in the past.Within the framework of the agreement, the report said various economic projects in Gaza would be advanced to create jobs for some 30,000 jobs and alleviate the humanitarian situation in the Strip.The truce is slated to last three years and will be under the supervision of the United Nations and Russia. At later stage after the deal is implemented, Al-Akbar said Egypt would work to advance a prisoner exchange deal between Israel and Hamas.The report was released after Friday’s weekly protests along the Gaza border saw a significant decrease in violence.According to the Hamas-run health ministry in the strip, 12 Palestinians were injured from live Israeli fire, and dozens injured from tear gas inhalation. The Associated Press said the figures were the lowest reported since the start of the demonstrations seven months ago.Official Fatah account posts a picture of what it says is a member of the Hamas-run security forces forcibly preventing protesters from approaching the border fence between Gaza and Israel https://t.co/XAgD08xXWL— Adam Rasgon (@adamrasgon1) November 2, 2018-A senior Hamas member said the clashes were scaled down to give diplomatic efforts a chance amid talk of a breakthrough in months of Egyptian-led negotiations.The official Twitter account of PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction even posted a picture of what it claimed to be a member of the Hamas-run security forces forcibly preventing protesters from approaching the Gaza border fence during Friday’s protests.Khalil al-Hayya said the terror group was “testing” Egyptian-led efforts to broker a ceasefire to ease an 11-year-old blockade on Gaza, but warned the clashes would resume if the blockade was not lifted.The IDF put turnout Friday at some 7,000 demonstrators with about half of those present approached the border fence, while the rest remained at a distance and did not clash with soldiers. The protest ended earlier than usual.For months, Egypt and UN officials have been engaged in indirect talks between Hamas, the Islamist terror group that runs the Gaza Strip, and Israel.Israel has accused Hamas, which is sworn to the destruction of the Jewish state, of leading the protests and using them as cover to carry out attacks against troops stationed the border.Last week, seven Palestinians were reported killed in the weekly border protests. The bloodshed was followed by rockets launched at Israel by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group, which were met with and retaliatory Israeli airstrikes, dashing hopes of what was expected to be a calmer week in Gaza.Since the often violent protests began on March 30, over 150 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire during demonstrations and clashes along the border, including a number of people who broke through the fence into Israel. Dozens of the fatalities were Hamas members. During that time, one Israeli soldier has been killed by a Palestinian sniper.

Palestinian-American woman detained at airport, to be deported-Immigration authorities say decision to deny Susan Abulhawa entry due to past incident at border crossing and not connected to BDS-By AFP-5 November 2018

A Palestinian-American writer has been detained on arrival at Israel’s main airport and will be deported, Palestinian and Israeli officials said Friday.Susan Abulhawa was refused entry at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport on Thursday evening, said a spokesman for the Palestinian Literature Festival, which Abulhawa had been set to attend.She appealed the decision in an Israeli court Friday morning but her appeal was rejected, meaning she was likely to be deported in the coming hours, the spokesman added.Abulhawa, author of the novel “Mornings in Jenin,” had been due to appear at panel events in both Jerusalem and the West Bank city of Ramallah during the festival, which is co-sponsored by the British Council.Immigration authority spokeswoman Sabine Haddad told AFP the writer was refused entry because of an incident in 2015 when she refused to answer questions by security personnel when attempting to enter though a land crossing from neighboring Jordan.“She was refused entry then and told that the next time she arrived she had to coordinate in advance,” Haddad said in Hebrew.This time “she landed without arranging entry in advance.”Haddad added that Abulhawa’s detention was not related to support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.In March 2017, Israel’s parliament passed a law barring entry to supporters of BDS, which seeks to isolate the Jewish state internationally.Last month an American student spent two weeks in Israeli detention appealing an entry ban over her past involvement in a campus group that supports boycotting Israel.Lara Alqasem was eventually allowed to enter Israel after its Supreme Court overturned a lower court ruling upholding the state’s decision to deny her entry.Alqasem’s detention came after a number of other high-profile cases in which travelers to Israel were questioned over their political views and alleged support for BDS, drawing scrutiny to the law barring boycott supporters.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.

Egyptian delegation tours Gaza clashes as promised calm largely holds-Hamas member says violence reined in to give Egyptian truce efforts a chance, but warns of escalation if blockade not lifted-By TOI staff and Agencies-5 November 2018

An Egyptian security delegation toured the Gaza border protests Friday, and even though thousands of Palestinians turned up, they were the quietest in several months, witnesses said.The visit came amid efforts by Egypt to broker a ceasefire between Israel and the Gaza Strip’s Hamas rulers.The delegation briefly attended the demonstrations in northern Gaza, a statement from the head of the organizing committee said. Eyewitnesses said a car carrying the delegation briefly drove to a protest site a few hundred meters from the border, before departing.A senior Hamas member said the clashes were scaled down to give diplomatic efforts a chance amid talk of a breakthrough in months of Egyptian-led negotiations.Khalil al-Hayya said the terror group is “testing” Egyptian-led efforts to broker a ceasefire to ease an 11-year-old blockade on Gaza.Fiercer clashes will resume if the blockade remains in place, al-Hayya warned.Israel and Egypt largely sealed their borders with Gaza after Hamas seized control in 2007 from the Palestinian Authority, citing a need to prevent weapons smuggling.Thousands again gathered at multiple sites near the frontier Friday but largely stayed away from the border fence, AFP correspondents said.Security forces loyal to Hamas prevented protesters from approaching the border too closely, the correspondents said.The Haaretz daily put turnout at some 7,000 demonstrators and quoted the Israel Defense Forces as saying about half of those present approached the border fence, while the rest remained at a distance and did not clash with soldiers.The protest ended earlier than usual.The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza said 32 Palestinians were injured during the protests, including seven by Israeli fire, which The Associated Press said was the lowest casualty figures reported since the start of the demonstrations.Armed factions in Gaza on Thursday had agreed to rein in violence along the security fence in light of the latest Egyptian-efforts to reach a ceasefire with Israel.A senior Hamas member told the Ynet news site groups in Gaza agreed to stop protesters from burning tires, throwing firebombs and approaching the border during rallies until Sunday.He said the protesters would also refrain from launching incendiary devices toward Israel over the weekend.Egypt and UN officials have been engaged in indirect talks between Hamas, the Islamist terror group that runs the Gaza Strip, and Israel.Israel has accused Hamas, which is sworn to the destruction of the Jewish state, of leading the protests and using them as cover to carry out attacks against troops stationed the border-Since often violent protests began on March 30, over 150 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire during protests and clashes along the border, including a number of people who broke through the fence into Israel. Dozens of the fatalities were Hamas members.One Israeli soldier has been killed by a Palestinian sniper.In a statement after a meeting of their leaders in Gaza on Thursday, Hamas and Islamic Jihad said the marches would continue, albeit without violence.Both groups praised Egyptian and UN efforts to broker a deal.A separate statement by Islamic Jihad carried by Israeli media threatened that it would use a “new tactic” along the border, without providing details.A leader of the Iran-backed terror group told Haaretz the Egyptians had agreed to work to curb any Israeli response to the protests over the next three weeks. The unnamed official said the protests could be called off after that period if Israel keeps to its commitment to ease a blockade on the Strip.There was no comment from Egyptian officials.Last week’s clashes, in which seven Palestinians were reported killed, was followed by Islamic Jihad rocket launches at Israel and retaliatory Israeli Air Force raids, dashing hopes of what was expected to be a calmer weekend along the border.

Abbas, Sissi hold rare meet on backdrop of ceasefire, reconciliation efforts-Last publicly known time Palestinian, Egyptian leaders met was 10 months ago; Abbas praises Cairo’s ‘efforts’-By Adam Rasgon-TOI-NOV 4,18

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi met on Saturday in the Egyptian resort city of Sharm al-Sheikh, the official PA news agency Wafa reported.The last publicly known time the two leaders held a bilateral meeting was some ten months ago.“The two presidents discussed developments in the Middle East, especially those related to Palestine in light of the dangers the Palestinian issue is facing,” the Wafa report said.Abbas arrived in Egypt on Friday to meet Sissi and attend a conference in Sharm el-Sheikh.The PA president also praised Sissi “for the efforts the Arab Republic of Egypt has exerted” under his leadership, without elaborating.Azzam al-Ahmad, a Palestine Liberation Organization official who attended the meeting between the two leaders, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Egypt has recently made efforts to revive the reconciliation process between Hamas and Fatah, meeting with leaders from the two rival parties for separate talks in the past several weeks.In October 2017, Hamas and Fatah signed an Egyptian-brokered deal to advance reconciliation and bring the West Bank and Gaza under one government, but they failed to implement it.Hamas has controlled Gaza since ousting the Fatah-dominated Palestinian Authority from the territory in 2007.Egypt, alongside United Nations special coordinator for the Middle East peace process Nikolay Mladenov, has also recently played a key role in attempts to mediate a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel.Arabic media reports have said that if achieved, a ceasefire would include at least a partial lifting of Israel’s restrictions on the movement of goods and people into and out of Gaza.Israel holds that its restrictions on movement serve security purposes including preventing the entry of weapons into the Strip.Ramallah-based Palestinian officials have said Fatah-Hamas reconciliation should precede any possible ceasefire. They have also contended that the Palestine Liberation Organization is the sole party with the legitimacy to negotiate a ceasefire with Israel.Egyptian intelligence officials joined Palestinians protesting in the border region between Israel and Gaza on Friday, Deputy Hamas Chief in Gaza Khalil al-Hayya told the London-based Al-Ghad TV.Friday’s rally was largely peaceful. Hayya said the protests were scaled down to give the ceasefire efforts a chance, according to the Associated Press.The protests, which have included many violent acts, have taken place weekly since March 30. Their organizers have said the protests aim to achieve the return of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to lands which are now part of Israel, and pressure the Jewish state to lift its restrictions on the movement of people and goods into and out of the coastal enclave.Hayya suggested efforts to achieve a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas had been making progress.“Their success is becoming visible in the horizon,” he told Al-Ghad TV, referring to the efforts to conclude a ceasefire.On Saturday, the Egyptian Intelligence officials left Gaza through the Erez crossing, according to the Hamas-linked Palestinian Information Center.

U.S. allows eight importers to keep buying Iran oil for now-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-By Arshad Mohammed, Lesley Wroughton and Patricia Zengerle-November 4, 2018

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States said on Friday it will temporarily allow eight importers to keep buying Iranian oil when it re-imposes sanctions on Monday to try to force Iran to curb its nuclear, missile and regional activities.U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who announced the decision, did not name the eight, which he referred to as "jurisdictions," a term that might include importers such as Taiwan which the United States does not regard as a country.Having abandoned the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, U.S. President Donald Trump is trying to cripple Iran’s oil-dependent economy and force Tehran to quash not only its nuclear ambitions and its ballistic missile program but its support for militant proxies in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and other parts of the Middle East.On Twitter, in a message designed to emphasize his "maximum pressure" policy toward Iran, Trump included a photograph of himself modeled on a entertainment industry poster with the headline: "Sanctions are coming November 5."China, India, South Korea, Turkey, Italy, the United Arab Emirates and Japan have been top importers of Iran’s oil, while Taiwan occasionally buys cargoes of Iranian crude but is not a major buyer.Turkey has been told it will temporarily be allowed to keep buying Iranian oil, its energy minister told reporters, as has Iraq, as long as it does not pay Iran in U.S. dollars, three Iraqi officials said.India and South Korea were also on the list, said a source familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity. Under U.S. law, exceptions can be granted for up to 180 days.Oil prices fell on Friday for a weekly loss of over 6 percent, as investors worried about crude oversupply after the U.S. waivers.Brent crude futures fell 6 cents to settle at $72.83 a barrel, while U.S. crude declined 55 cents to end the session at $63.14 per barrel, a 0.86 percent loss.U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also said Washington had told the Brussels-based SWIFT financial messaging service it was expected to disconnect all Iranian financial institutions that the United States plans to blacklist as of Monday. He declined to name the targeted institutions.Trump set in motion the resumption of sanctions on May 8, when he announced U.S. withdrawal from the 2015 deal between Iran and world powers under which Tehran had agreed to curtail its nuclear program in return for relief from sanctions."This part of the campaign is aimed at depriving the regime of the revenues it uses to spread death and destruction around the world, Pompeo said.ZERO CRUDE-Pompeo said Washington will issue temporary waivers to the eight Iran oil importers "only because they have demonstrated significant reductions in their crude oil and cooperation on many other fronts."Two would stop imports and the other six would greatly reduce them, Pompeo said.He later said the ultimate goal was to stop all Iranian crude exports."We will ultimately move Iran to zero crude oil. That’ll take us some number of months to do that," Pompeo told Fox News according to the transcript of the interview released by the State Department. "We’ve been able to do that in a way that hasn’t had a huge impact on crude oil prices. That’s a good thing for American consumers."Iran said it was not troubled over the re-imposition of U.S. sanctions, which target not only its vital oil and gas sector but also shipping, ship-building and banking industries."America will not be able to carry out any measure against our great and brave nation ... We have the knowledge and the capability to manage the country's economic affairs," Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi told state TV.However, ordinary Iranians fear an even more painful squeeze, from businesses struggling to buy raw materials to the sick and elderly unable to afford life-saving medicines."I cannot even buy rice to feed my children or pay my rent," said elementary school teacher Pejman Sarafnejad, 43, a father of three in Tehran.The European Union, France, Germany and Britain, parties to the nuclear agreement who are trying to keep it alive, said they regretted Washington's decision to re-impose sanctions. The EU is creating a special mechanism that would circumvent U.S. financial sanctions on Iran.The United States is able to pressure other nations to stop buying Iranian oil under a 2012 law that allows the president to cut off foreign banks, including central banks, from the U.S. financial system unless they significantly reduce purchases.The United States believes global oil supplies will exceed demand next year, making it easier for countries to cut Iranian oil imports to zero, Brian Hook, the U.S. special representative for Iran, told reporters.(Reporting by Arshad Mohammed, Patricia Zengerle, Lesley Wroughton; Additional reporting by Timothy Gardner and Humeyra Pamak in Washington, Devika Krishna Kumar in New York; Henning Gloystein in Singapore, Aizhu Chen in Beijing, Dmitry Zhdannikov in London; Hyonhee Shin in Seoul, Osamu Tsukimori in Tokyo, Gulsen Solaker in Ankara and Parisa Hafezi in Dubai; Editing by Susan Thomas, Grant McCool and Tomasz Janowski)

Fearing 'angry mob', lawyer of freed Christian woman leaves Pakistan-[Reuters]-By Saad Sayeed and Asif Shahzad-YAHOONEWS-November 4, 2018

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - The Pakistani lawyer who helped a Christian woman overturn her death sentence for blasphemy said on Saturday he had left the country in fear of his life after her acquittal earlier this week sparked street protests by Islamists.Leaders of the ultra-Islamist Tehreek-e-Labaik (TLP) group blocked main roads in Pakistan's biggest cites for three days, calling for the murder of the Supreme Court judges who acquitted Asia Bibi on Wednesday -- urging their cooks and servants to kill them.Saiful Mulook had kept a low profile during the years he represented Bibi, a mother-of-five who has been on death row since 2010, due to the highly sensitive nature of the case. Two politicians who had tried to help her have been assassinated.Mulook told Reuters in a WhatsApp message he had gone abroad "just to save (my) life from angry mob" and because of fears for the safety of his family."I consulted and everybody is of this opinion (that I should leave)," he said, adding that he would return to the country to continue his work on the case if he was given protection by security forces.The TLP called off the protests late on Friday after striking a deal with the government that would see authorities seek to put Bibi on an 'exit control list' barring her from leaving the country.Bibi's whereabouts are unknown, but Islamists have warned the authorities against taking her out of the country."There will be a war if they send Asia out of country," TLP leader Khadim Hussain Rizvi said after the deal was reached.Earlier in the week one of Rizvi's deputies called for Pakistan's Chief Justice Saqib Nisar and two other judges who ruled in the case to be murdered."Whoever, who has got any access to them, kill them before the evening," TLP co-founder Muhammad Afzal Qadri told supporters.The TLP was founded out of a movement supporting a bodyguard who assassinated Punjab provincial governor Salman Taseer after he spoke in Bibi's defence in 2011. Federal minister for minorities Shahbaz Bhatti was also killed after calling for her release.Bibi was convicted of blasphemy in 2010 for allegedly making derogatory remarks about Islam after neighbours objected to her drinking water from their glass because she was not Muslim. She always denied having committed blasphemy.The case has outraged Christians worldwide and been a source of division within Pakistan, where Islamist parties such as the TLP have framed Bibi's release as Pakistan's government caving into Western demands.Bibi's acquittal is being reviewed, though it is extremely rare for a review to overturn a Supreme Court ruling.(Writing by Drazen Jorgic; Editing by Helen Popper)

UAE minister says Iran’s aggression to blame for renewed US sanctions-Anwar Gargash cites Tehran’s ‘aggressive policies’ as largely responsible for reintroduction of punitive measures that were lifted under 2015 nuclear deal-By TOI staff-TOI-NOV 4,18

The United Arab Emirates’ Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash said Saturday that Iran’s “aggressive policies” were “largely responsible” for the US decision to reimpose sanctions against the Islamic Republic, according to Reuters.The UAE along with Saudi Arabia have adopted a more confrontational approach to Shiite rival Iran in recent years, accusing it of supporting terror groups and fueling turmoil in regional countries.The two Sunni states head a military coalition in Yemen aimed at toppling the Iran-backed Houthi rebel group and returning the internationally recognized government to power.On Friday, the US announced that it will reintroduce sanctions against Tehran that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal. They are the second batch the administration has reimposed since it withdrew from the international accord in May.The rollback, which will go into effect on Monday, ends US participation in the nuclear deal, which now hangs in the balance as Iran no longer enjoys any relief from sanctions imposed by the world’s largest economy.Shortly after the announcement, US President Donald Trump tweeted a poster-like image of himself in a play on TV show Game of Thrones, with the phrase “Sanctions are Coming, November 5.”pic.twitter.com/nk2vKvHuaL— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 2, 2018-With limited exceptions, the sanctions will hit countries that do not stop importing Iranian oil and foreign firms that do business with blacklisted Iranian entities, including its central bank, a number of private financial institutions, and state-run port and shipping firms, as well as hundreds of individual Iranian officials.The waivers will be valid for six months, during which time the importing country can buy Iranian oil but must deposit Iran’s revenue in an escrow account. Iran can spend the money but only on a narrow range of humanitarian items. Pompeo said two of the eight countries would wind down imports to zero within weeks.

Florida imam: Palestine must be liberated, even at cost of millions of martyrs-Hasan Sabri says ‘Palestine in its entirety is Islamic land, and there is no difference between what was occupied in 1948 and 1967’-By TOI staff-NOV 4,18

During a recent sermon at the Islamic Center of South Florida, an imam called for the “liberation” of Palestine, even at the cost of tens of millions of Muslim lives.“If a land is occupied or plundered, it should be liberated from the occupiers and plunderers, even if this leads to the martyrdom of tens of millions of Muslims,” said Hasan Sabri in a sermon last month translated Friday by the Middle East Media Research Institute.“This is the ruling, and there is no room for discussion or concessions.”Sabri referred to “Palestine in its entirety” as “Islamic land” and asserted that there is no difference between the land captured by Israel in the 1948 Independence War and the 1967 Six Day War. “All of it is Islamic waqf land that was occupied by force. The responsibility for it lies with the entire Islamic nation, and the [Palestinians] should benefit from this land.”Florida Friday Sermon – Imam Hasan Sabri: Palestine In Its Entirety Should Be Liberated, Even If This Leads to the Martyrdom of Tens of Millions of Muslims pic.twitter.com/tbuJNiOSry— MEMRI (@MEMRIReports) November 2, 2018-The Imam also criticized the yet-to-be-released peace plan of US President Donald Trump. “They call it ‘the Deal of the Century.’ Why do they call it a deal?’ Because whoever is involved in this treason is not a man of principles,” Sabri said.“These are peddlers, not men with a cause. All they want are positions and jobs. That is why for them, the cause is nothing but a deal, a matter of give and take. For them, it is nothing but a deal.”

Christians in Egypt bury their dead after jihadist attack-Local Islamic State affiliate claims its gunmen killed 7 Coptic pilgrims in ambush attack near Cairo-By Samy Magdy and Hamza Hendawi-TOI-NOV 4,18

MINYA, Egypt (AP) — Hundreds of Egyptian Coptic Christians gathered Saturday for a funeral service south of Cairo to bid farewell to six of seven people killed the previous day when militants ambushed three buses carrying pilgrims on their way to a remote desert monastery.The service at Prince Tadros church in the city of Minya was held amid tight security and presided over by Minya’s top cleric, Anba Makarios. He and members of the congregation prayed and chanted over a row of six white coffins.Relatives of the victims cried and held each other for support.All but one of those killed were members of the same family, according to a list of the victims’ names released by the church, which said a boy and a girl, ages 15 and 12 respectively, were among the dead. A total of 19 were wounded in the attack, according to the Coptic Orthodox Church.The local Islamic State group affiliate, which spearheads militants fighting security forces in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, claimed responsibility for the attack south of Cairo. It said the attack was revenge for the imprisonment by Egyptian authorities of “our chaste sisters” but did not elaborate.The IS affiliate claimed that 13 Christians were killed and another 18 wounded, but it was not immediately possible to independently verify the claim or reconcile the discrepancy in the number of dead and wounded given by the group and the church.The attack was likely to cast a dark shadow on one of President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi’s showpieces — the World Youth Forum — which opens Saturday in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. The forum is drawing thousands of local and foreign youth to discuss a wide range of topics, with Egypt’s 63-year-old leader taking center stage.The Islamic State has repeatedly vowed to go after Egypt’s Christians as punishment for their support of el-Sissi. As defense minister, el-Sissi led the military’s 2013 ouster of an Islamist president, whose one-year rule proved divisive. The group has claimed responsibility for a string of deadly attacks on Christians dating back to December 2016.El-Sissi, who has made security among his top priorities since taking office in 2014, wrote on his Twitter account that Friday’s attack was designed to harm the “nation’s solid fabric” and pledged to continue fighting terrorism. He later offered his condolences when he spoke by telephone with Pope Tawadros II, spiritual leader of Egypt’s Orthodox Christians and a close el-Sissi ally.In a somber message of his own, Tawadros said in a video clip released by the church that the latest attack would only make the Christians stronger.“I think that this is a terrorist act which is targeting Egypt through playing the card of the Copts,” said Begemy Nassem Nasr, priest of the church of St. Mary in Minya. “We know that … President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi is hosting the youth forum and they meant to embarrass him.”Embarrassingly, Friday’s attack is the second to target pilgrims heading to the St. Samuel the Confessor monastery in as many years, indicating that security measures put in place since then are either inadequate or have become lax. The previous attack in May 2017 left nearly 30 people dead.It was the latest in a string of IS assaults against Christians. Previous ones targeted churches packed with worshippers in Cairo, the Mediterranean city of Alexandria and Tanta in the Nile Delta north of the capital, leaving at least 100 people dead.The attacks led to tighter security around Christian places of worship and Church-linked facilities, where metal detectors and armed police are routinely deployed. They have also underlined the vulnerability of minority Christians in a country where many Muslims have since the 1970s grown religiously conservative and less tolerant of non-Muslims.The Interior Ministry, which oversees the police, said Friday’s attackers used secondary dirt roads to reach the buses carrying the pilgrims, who were near the monastery at the time of the attack. Only pilgrims have been allowed on the main road leading to the monastery since last year’s attack.Some Christians in Minya said police negligence was partly to blame for the latest attack, arguing that they stopped providing armed escorts for pilgrims’ buses headed to the old monastery.“They should have escorted them. They know it is dangerous to leave them alone on that road,” said Youssef Attya, a 38-year-old health worker from Minya.The Interior Ministry said police were pursuing the attackers, who fled the scene.Egypt’s Christians, who account for some 10 percent of the country’s 100 million people, complain of discrimination in the Muslim majority country. Christian activists say the church’s alliance with el-Sissi has offered the ancient community a measure of protection but failed to end frequent acts of discrimination that boil over into violence against Christians, especially in rural Egypt.In Minya, the scene of Friday’s attack, Christians constitute the highest percentage of the population — about 35 percent — of any Egyptian province. It’s also in Minya where most acts of violence, like attacks on churches and Christian homes and businesses, take place.Christians there accuse the local police of being soft on Muslims who attack them and complain that, in their pursuit of keeping the peace between the two communities, they insist on resolving sectarian disputes through tribal-like reconciliation meetings rather than rule of law.

Clocks 'fall back' on Sunday, offering 1 more hour of sleep-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-November 3, 2018

Twice a year, most Canadians change the time of their clocks by an hour.We "fall back," as we'll do this Sunday, Nov. 4, at 2 a.m. And a few months later, on March 10, 2019, we'll "spring forward."We know that the time shift helps us make the most of light in the morning and evening, and that it can temporarily upset our sleep schedules.But why do we do it? The idea was first proposed by Benjamin Franklin in the 1770s, but wasn't implemented until around 1915. Germany was the first country to use it, then Britain. It was adopted more widely during the First World War, which is when Canada started using daylight time.Reducing energy consumption and making the best use of daylight hours were the main reasons daylight time was used.There have been changes to the dates when clocks would change over the years, most recently in 2007, when legislation in the United States moved the start of daylight time three weeks earlier in the spring and the return to standard time a week later in the fall.The change was aimed at trying to help save energy. Canada followed the move in the U.S. so the time zones would remain aligned. That means clocks now:Fall back the first Sunday in November.Spring forward the second Sunday in March.Only in some parts of Canada-Most of Saskatchewan has not observed daylight time since 1966, staying on central standard time all year round. Some border towns follow the time schemes of their neighbours in Manitoba or Alberta.Areas of Quebec east of 63 degrees west longitude do not change to daylight time and remain on Atlantic time year round. Pockets of Ontario and British Columbia do not use daylight time.Daylight time is observed in most of the United States. Just two states — Arizona and Hawaii — and three territories — American Samoa, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands — do not participate.There have been debates about whether daylight time remains useful. A March 2013 telephone survey of 1,000 adults by Rasmussen Reports in the U.S., for example, suggested 45 per cent of people thought it had no value, and 19 per cent were unsure.A similar survey of Europeans in the summer of 2018 found 84 per cent want to stop changing their clocks twice a year. That prompted the European Commission to announce in August that it would recommend that European Union member states abolish daylight savings.The time change can also affect sleep cycles. "Falling back," is generally thought to be less physically stressful, because people can get an extra hour of sleep, but studies show that's not always the case.Time changes are not always beneficial to traffic and pedestrians. A study by U.S. researchers found there were more pedestrian deaths during the evening rush hour in November than October as drivers and pedestrians adjusted to the earlier darkness.Upcoming time changes (ET)-2019: Spring forward Sunday, March 10 at 2 a.m. Fall back Sunday, Nov. 3 at 2 a.m.2020: Spring forward Sunday, March 8 at 2 a.m. Fall back Sunday Nov. 1 at 2 a.m.2021: Spring forward Sunday, March 14 at 2 a.m. Fall back Sunday, Nov. 7 at 2 a.m.

Federal ministers defend cannabis rollout after Enquête uncovers ties to organized crime-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-November 4, 2018

Federal ministers defended the rollout of legal cannabis Friday after a Radio-Canada investigation revealed that the financial backers of some producers have links to organized crime.The French-language investigative program Enquête found that two individuals connected to illegal drug trafficking, including one with links to the Rizzuto crime family, were able to invest in a major legal cannabis producer.Another individual with ties to the illegal market was able to sell his cannabis business to one of Canada's biggest legal players in exchange for shares in the company."It's not something that happens overnight, but there are laws in place to ensure that we do everything we can to capture individuals that are involved in organized crime," said Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould.RCMP Supt. Yves Goupil told Enquête that while the police force conducts background checks on those applying to be licensed producers, uncovering everyone who is investing in the venture is a much more costly process.He said the RCMP cannot afford to employ deep surveillance techniques on every producer.Opposition parties said it's a troubling sign that, two weeks into the era of legal cannabis, the black market appears to have infiltrated Canada's legal supply chain."On its face, problems begin to emerge," said Conservative Member of Parliament Gérard Deltell.NDP MP Alexandre Boulerice said it's essential that the government uncover who is financing Canada's legal cannabis producers."They take the patch off their back and put on their jacket and tie and become a legitimate businessmen and continue to profit off drugs," he said.Making the verification process more difficult is the use of trusts, the Enquête report found, which hide the names of beneficiaries from the public."We have robust physical and personnel security screening processes in place for the existing industry designed to guard against infiltration by organized crime," said Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction Minister Bill Blair.He pointed to the fact that all officers and board members of a licensed producer are subject to background checks.Blair said the government has also proposed expanding those checks to board members of any company that controls the corporation doing the actual cannabis production.Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor defended the government's cannabis law, calling the current verification system "exhaustive."She reiterated that Health Canada had found no connections to organized crime in the companies approved to produce cannabis."It's a new regime. We will ensure that the right resources are in place," she said.At a news conference in Churchill, Man., Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau acknowledged there is still work to do be done the cannabis file, but that he is happy with the rollout so far.With files from Radio-Canada.

Reasons Why Paint Watercolour Is Getting More Popular In The Past Decade | paint watercolour

via WordPress ift.tt/2PNAobu

Whether or not you’re artistically inclined, there’s a acceptable adventitious that you—like millions of added bodies about the world—have been captivated by Bob Ross’s advisory mural paintings and abatement voice. On what would accept been Ross’s 76th birthday, we’re administration 35 facts about the blessed little legend.

Getting Started With Watercolor: What You Need to Know – paint watercolour | paint watercolour

A constant beastly lover, Ross was consistently rescuing blood-soaked animals and nursing them aback to health. As a kid growing up in Florida, this meant one rather aberrant accession to the family: an alligator, which he attempted to abettor aback to bloom in the Ross ancestors bathtub. Alike in his developed life, Ross was consistently arena host to orphaned and afflicted animals, including an epileptic accumulate that lived in his abandoned Jacuzzi.

Ross’s quiet articulation and affable address were two of his best iconic traits, which makes the actuality that he spent 20 years in the United States Air Force and retired with the rank of adept baker all the added surprising. Basically, he was the guy who told anybody abroad what to do.

Before he lent his adapted articulation to The Joy of Painting, Ross spent a lot of time yelling. “I was the guy who makes you abrade the latrine, the guy who makes you accomplish your bed, the guy who screams at you for actuality backward to work,” Ross already said. “The job requires you to be a mean, boxy person. And I was fed up with it. I promised myself that if I anytime got abroad from it, it wasn’t activity to be that way anymore.”

While stationed in Alaska during his assignment in the Air Force, Ross advantaged his artistic ancillary by painting his now-iconic landscapes assimilate aureate pans, which he awash for $25 apiece. Today, they can aback as abundant as $7500 on eBay.

From 1974 to 1982, German painter Bill Alexander hosted an art apprenticeship appearance on PBS, The Magic of Oil Painting, area he aggregate his “wet-on-wet” oil painting technique. Ross apparent the alternation while alive as a bartender, and became an actual fan of the artist. He concluded up belief beneath Alexander, who became his mentor. In fact, Ross committed the aboriginal adventure of his own PBS show, The Joy of Painting, to Alexander. “Years ago, Bill accomplished me this absurd technique,” Ross told viewers. “And I feel as admitting he gave me a adored gift, and I’d like to allotment that allowance with you.”

In the aboriginal 1980s, as Alexander was advancing to retire, he asked Ross to booty over teaching his painting classes. Ross agreed, and set out to bout the country on his own in a motor home, traveling and teaching bodies Alexander’s “wet-on-wet” technique. He told his wife Jane that he’d try it out for one year, and if he didn’t accomplish abundant money, he would acknowledgment to Alaska.

It was during Ross’s time on the alley that he adopted his iconic hairstyle. Back teaching painting wasn’t an acutely advantageous profession, Ross abstruse to amplitude every penny. One way he did this was to save money on haircuts by accepting his locks permed.

Though Ross reportedly hated the coiled hair, he was a agent first, which is why he kept it. “When we got a band of paints and brushes, we put his account on,” Bob Ross Aggregation co-founder Annette Kowalski told Mental Floss. “The logo is a account of Bob with that hair, so he could never get it cut. He wasn’t consistently blessed about that.”

(You can see what he looked like afterwards his brand perm here.)

Though it was Alexander who got Ross started on his career aisle as an artist, it was Kowalski—one of Ross’s students—who put him on the pop ability map. Kowalski, who is generally accustomed as the woman who “discovered” Ross, took a five-day advisory advance with Ross in 1982, and bound became amorous with his abstracted articulation and absolute messages.

In accession to newfound painting skills, Kowalski larboard the chic with a new client: she became Ross’s manager, allowance him agent the accord for The Joy of Painting television appearance with PBS, and later, a band of Bob Ross art supplies.

The Joy of Painting ran new seasons on PBS from 1983 to 1994, so alike at accessible broadcasting ante the appearance charge accept fabricated Ross absolutely a bit of loot, right? Not quite. Ross absolutely did the alternation for free; his assets came from Bob Ross Inc.

Ross’s aggregation awash art food and how-to videotapes, accomplished classes, and alike had a affiliation of traveling art advisers who roamed the apple teaching painting. It’s boxy to anticipate of a bigger advertisement for these articles than Ross’s show.

How did Ross acquisition the time to band all of those shows for free? He could almanac a division about as fast as he could paint. Ross could blast out an absolute 13-episode division of The Joy of Painting in aloof over two days, which freed him up to get aback to teaching lessons, which is area he fabricated his absolute money.

In accession to actuality agitated by about 95 percent of all accessible television stations beyond America, extensive admirers in added than 93.5 actor homes, The Joy of Painting was a hit alfresco of the U.S. as well. The appearance was advertisement in dozens of adopted countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, South Korea, and Turkey.

The Joy of Painting was a big hit in Japan, area it aired alert a day. (His voice, however, was dubbed.) On a appointment to the country, Ross was reportedly chock-full by fans.

“We’re like biologic dealers,” Ross already said of the acceptance of his painting technique. “Come into boondocks and get everybody absolutely absorbed to painting. It doesn’t booty abundant to get you addicted.”

Though he was assuredly a pop ability phenomenon, the art apple didn’t absolutely embrace Ross. “People absolutely apperceive who he is,” Kevin Lavin, a “struggling” painter, told The New York Times in 1991. “In his own way, he is as acclaimed as Warhol.”

“It is formulaic and thoughtless,” sculptor Keith Frank said of Ross’s assignment in the aforementioned article. “Art as therapy.”

“I am abashed by art apprenticeship on television,” added Abstract Expressionist Richard Pousette-Dart, who anesthetized abroad the afterward year. “It’s terrible—bad, bad, bad. They are aloof bartering exploiters, non-artists teaching added non-artists.”

The New York Times paid a appointment to Pearl Acrylic Company, an art accumulation abundance in New York City, area an agent acicular to the “happy little corner” area they kept Ross’s products. “We adumbrate them,” he admitted, “so as not to offend.”

Bill Alexander was one of the artists who wasn’t captivated with Ross’s success, alike admitting he had been his protégé. “He betrayed me,” Alexander told The New York Times. “I invented ‘wet on wet.’ I accomplished him and he is artful me—what bothers me is not aloof that he betrayed me, but that he thinks he can do it better.”

Though allotment of Ross’s address was his communicative tone, none of this allocution of blessed accidents or added blessed little things was ad libbed. “He told me he would lay in bed at night and plan every word,” Kowalski already said. “He knew absolutely what he was doing.”

Though you’d never apperceive it from his painting technique, not all of Ross’s digits were intact. He absent allotment of his larboard basis feel back he was a kid in a woodworking blow while alive with his dad, who was a carpenter.

While copse and wildlife generally helped accompany Ross’s paintings to life, he rarely corrective people. In fact, he admired to accumulate his assignment as people-free as possible.

“I will acquaint you Bob’s better secret,” Kowalski told FiveThirtyEight. “If you notice, his cabins never had chimneys on them. That’s because chimneys represented people, and he didn’t appetite any assurance of a actuality in his paintings.”

The Joy of Painting consistently featured a alternating casting of blessed little animals, with a tiny accumulate alleged Peapod apparently accepting the aggregate of airtime. According to Ross, Peapod admired to sit in his pocket.

Though The Joy of Painting was a admired series, bodies didn’t assume to be watching it to apprentice how to be the abutting Picasso. It was already estimated that alone 10 percent of admirers were absolutely painting forth with Ross.

In 2014, FiveThirtyEight did a statistical breakdown of Ross’s assignment on The Joy of Painting and begin that 91 percent of them included at atomic one tree—by far the best accepted element. (And if he corrective one tree, there was a 93 percent adventitious he’d acrylic a added one—though he referred to any added copse as “friends” on the show.)

On a few occasions, Ross’s son Steve subbed for his dad as a bedfellow host. That aforementioned abstracts set apparent that Steve admired blessed little lakes: 91 percent of Steve’s paintings featured one (as against to Bob’s 34 percent).

Ross attempt 403 episodes of The Joy of Painting and fabricated three near-exact copies of anniversary painting per episode. The aboriginal archetype consistently hid off screen, and Ross referred to it while the cameras formed (none of his on-air paintings were spontaneous). Ross corrective a third archetype back filming finished. This time, an abettor would angle abaft him and breeze photos of anniversary brushstroke; these pictures went into his how-to books.

For all his accepted popularity, there aren’t a lot of interviews with Ross. It has annihilation to do with the artisan actuality publicity-shy—it’s aloof that bodies rarely asked. “I never about-face bottomward requests for interviews,” he already said. “I’m aloof rarely asked.”

For all his hokey-ness, Ross was air-conditioned abundant to be asked to be a bell-ringer for MTV—which he accounted “The acreage of blessed little trees.”

Though some anticipation it was an April Fools’ joke, Nintendo had affairs to actualize a alternation of video amateur based on The Joy of Painting. Unfortunately, the activity ran into assembly problems appealing aboriginal on, so we’ll never apperceive what ability accept been.

In 2001, Bob Ross Inc. media administrator Joan Kowalski told The New York Times how bodies about seemed ashamed to accept that Ross’s articulation was the absolute band-aid to insomnia. “It’s funny to allocution to these people,” she said. ”Because they anticipate they’re the alone ones who watch to booty a nap. Bob knew about this. Bodies would appear up to him and say, ‘I don’t appetite to aching your feelings, but you’ve been putting me to beddy-bye for 10 years.’ He’d adulation it.”

Even today, Ross has become an ASMR star: On the ASMR cilia on Reddit, “Bob Ross” is listed as a accepted trigger. A video of Ross painting a abundance has a amazing 7.65 actor views, with others consistently before 2 or 3 actor views. Of course, not all of those are ASMR viewers, but a ascent online attendance suggests they absolutely deserve some of the credit.

In a 1991 account with The New York Times, Ross claimed he’d fabricated over 30,000 paintings back he was an 18-year-old stationed in Alaska with the Air Force. Yet he was not one to militarist his own work. So what happened to them? Back Ross died of lymphoma in 1995, best of his paintings either concluded up in the easily of alms or PBS.

“One of the questions that I apprehend over and over and over is, ‘What do we do with all these paintings we do on television?’ Best of these paintings are donated to PBS stations beyond the country,” he said. “They bargain them off, and they accomplish a blessed blade with ‘em. So if you’d like to accept one, get in blow with your PBS station, account … we accord them to stations all over the country to advice them out with their fundraisers.”

The actuality that Ross didn’t try and about-face a accumulation from his own assignment doesn’t beggarly that you can’t acquisition one for sale. At one point, added than a dozen of his paintings hit the atramentous bazaar back accession blanket 13 advertence paintings from Ross’s van during the show’s added season.

In the aboriginal 1990s, Ross was attractive to annex out from art and had an abstraction for a kids’ appearance alleged Bob’s World, area he planned to go out into attributes and advise kids about wildlife.

The Bob Ross Art Workshop in New Smyrna Beach, Florida is a must-visit destination for Ross die-hards: In accession to alms art classes in Ross’s method, you’ll acquisition a accumulating of the artist’s aboriginal paintings.

Two Inch Brush—named afterwards Ross’s besom of best for the wet-on-wet technique—is an actionable database that organizes all 403 paintings from The Joy of Painting by division and episode.

In August 2017, Funko appear a vinyl baby of the iconic artist/television personality. It depicts Ross dressed in his brand jeans and accepted shirt, captivation a painter’s palette. Sadly, it doesn’t appear with any miniature paintings of “happy little trees.”

          Faizabad will be called Ayodhya now: Yogi in Diwali address      Cache   Translate Page      
Ayodhya: Close on the heels of renaming Allahabad as Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday announced that Faizabad district will henceforth be known as Ayodhya.

"Ayodhya is a symbol of our 'aan, baan aur shaan' (honour, pride and prestige)" he said in the pilgrim town, about 120 km from state capital Lucknow. 

"Nobody can do injustice to Ayodhya," he said, adding that the holy city is identified by Lord Ram.

Adityanath was speaking on the occasion of 'Deepotsav' on Diwali eve.

He also announced setting up of a new airport in Ayodhya, named after Lord Ram, and a medical college in the name of King Dashrath, father of Lord Ram, in the district.

A section of the crowd was also heard chanting 'Mandir ka nirman karao' (build a temple).

"Deepotsav is about starting a new tradition," Adityanath said at the event at Katha Park which was also attended by South Korean First Lady Kim Jung-sook.

Several projects, including redevelopment and beautification of 'Ram Ki Paidi' and stoppage of sewage disposal in Saryu river, were launched at the event. 

Opposition parties criticised the CM for this move.

Aam Aadmi Party termed the decision as 'Tughlaqi' (autocratic) and said it should have taken people's opinion.

Taking a dig at Aditynath, senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh said the chief minister should first change his name to Ajay Singh Bisht if he is so 'fond' of changing names.

Communist Party of India general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy described it as a ploy to cover up the UP government's 'failure in governance'.

"This is BJP government's ploy to cover up its failure in governance. At the same time, the name change also reflects its anti-Muslim feelings.

"First it changed the name of Allahabad to Prayag Raj and now their move is to change the name of Faizabad because they think these are Muslim names", said Reddy.

Meanwhile, the Gujarat government on Tuesday said it was keen on rechristening Ahmedabad as Karnavati, if there were no legal hurdles.

Speaking to reporters in Gandhinagar, deputy chief minister Nitin Patel said the Bharatiya Janata Party government was willing to change Ahmedabad's name if it gets past the legal hurdles and receives required support.

"People are still having a feeling that Ahmedabad should be renamed as Karnavati. If we get required support to overcome the legal hurdles, we are always ready to change the name of the city," Patel told reporters when asked if the state government had a plan to rename India's only city having the 'World Heritage' tag.

Historically, the area around Ahmedabad has been inhabited since the 11th century, when it was known as Ashaval.

Chaulukya ruler Karna of Anhilwara (modern Patan) had waged a successful war against the Bhil king of Ashaval and established a city called Karnavati on the banks of the Sabarmati river.

Sultan Ahmed Shah in 1411 AD had laid the foundation of a new walled city near Karnavati and named it Ahmedabad after the four saints in the area by the name Ahmed.

"We can think of changing the name at an appropriate time," Patel added.

Slamming the BJP government over the issue, state unit Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi said the promise to rename Ahmedabad was just another 'poll gimmick' by the ruling party.

          Once Again, Warren Buffett Has Given Us A Major Warning That Everything Is Expensive      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com,

Buffett’s holding company, Berkshire Hathaway, just announced a blockbuster quarter, earning nearly $7 billion.

And Buffett’s still sitting on over $100 billion of cash. That means he’s got enough money to buy almost any company he wants, anywhere in the world.

But the only move Buffett made in the last quarter was buying $928 million of Berkshire Hathaway stock.

Some people might say this is a sign that Buffett thinks Berkshire’s stock is incredibly undervalued.

To be fair, nobody knows Berkshire better than Buffett. And shares may present a good value at this level – an all-time high price.

But it’s clear to me that Buffett simply can’t find anything else worth buying.

Remember, Buffett’s got over $100 billion in cash (and he could use debt to fund an even larger acquisition).

So he could buy stock in any publicly traded company. Or he could buy most any private company (the last time he did this was Precision Castparts in 2016 for $32 billion).

He’s got so much cash he could even buy any one of the 451 out of 500 largest companies in the US – Nike, Starbucks, Goldman Sachs, etc.

But, nope… He just bought back some Berkshire stock.

In addition, he’s selling longtime holdings like drywall maker USG and IBM (for a $1 billion loss).

I wrote about Buffett and his giant cash pile in February, just after Berkshire released its annual report.

Back then, Buffett had a whopping $116 billion. But still couldn’t find anything to buy. As he said:

In our search for new stand-alone businesses, the key qualities we seek are durable competitive strengths; able and high-grade management; good returns on the net tangible assets required to operate the business; opportunities for internal growth at attractive returns; and, finally, a sensible purchase price.

That last requirement proved a barrier to virtually all deals we reviewed in 2017, as prices for decent, but far from spectacular, businesses hit an all-time high.

As we wrote back then, it seems people are still willing to pay far too high a price for not that great of businesses.

Buffett is famous for saying “be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” And he’s sticking by that mantra today.

Like Buffett, I’ve also been raising cash. In fact, I’m sitting on more cash today than at any other time in my life.

And, like Buffett, I’m mostly holding that cash in 28-day T-bills.

However, unlike Buffett, I don’t have $100 billion to spend.

If I make a 20-50% return on a $5 million investment, that’s meaningful to me. But that’s peanuts to a guy like Buffett.

He’s got to put billions of dollars to work to generate enough cash to make a difference. And that severely limits the areas he can hunt for value.

But I’m able to look at all kinds of opportunities – like loans backed by fine wine, loans backed by bullion or European real estate and various, small-cap stocks around the world.

Despite most markets trading at or near all-time highs, there’s still a ton of value if you’re willing to do some extra work and look outside the US.

In The 4th Pillar, Tim Staermose just identified a consumer products company in South Korea trading for a 12% discount to its net cash backing.

He’s also recommended a security that holds portfolio of blue-chip stocks (including companies like Starbucks) trading for over a 20% discount to their market value.

And those are just two of the many opportunities you can take advantage of today in his 4th Pillar portfolio.

Value investing has been left for dead as the dumb money has chased up the value of companies like Uber and Tesla.

But when you can buy a profitable company for less than the amount of cash it has in the bank, it’s pretty hard to go wrong.

I’ll bet Buffett would make those investments if he could.

          U.S. Renews Sanctions On Iran But Exempts 8 Oil Importers, Including China And Japan      Cache   Translate Page      
Updated at 11:45 a.m. ET The U.S. has officially imposed what the Trump administration calls the "toughest ever" sanctions on Iran, meant to curb Tehran's nuclear and missile programs and contain its growing influence in the Middle East. The sanctions are essentially the same ones lifted by the nuclear deal reached during the Obama administration. However, the U.S. quickly exempted several of the world's largest economies, including China, Japan and India. "The Iranian regime has a choice," U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said as he detailed the sanctions on Monday. "It can either do a 180-degree turn from its current course of action and act like a normal country, or it can see its economy crumble." The waivers issued to eight nations — China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey — allow those countries to continue buying Iranian oil without consequences. Pompeo called them "temporary" exemptions that would help "ensure a well-supplied oil market." Several

Cuba, North Korea Reaffirm Historic Ties at First Summit in Thirty Years
DPRK state media hails two nations' "special friendship" and "joint struggle" against imperialism

Colin Zwirko
North Korea News 
November 5th, 2018

Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel arrived in Pyongyang on Sunday for the first state visit by a Cuban leader to North Korea in over thirty years, joining the country’s leader Kim Jong Un in condemning the “imperialists’ policy of aggression,” DPRK state media reported on Monday.

Kim greeted Díaz-Canel at Pyongyang International Airport with a ceremonial welcome, which included a surprising backdrop of painted portraits of the two leaders – a first for the Kim Jong Un era.

The meeting represents Kim’s eighth summit with a foreign head of state this year.

The two then held an official meeting, attended an arts performance, and held a dinner banquet, where there were discussions over expanding scientific and economic cooperation and reaffirming historic ties, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

At a dinner banquet late Sunday, Kim Jong Un reportedly said Díaz-Canel’s visit “marked a watershed in demonstrating the will to carry forward forever the friendship between the two countries.”

Díaz-Canel also echoed recent statements from Kim and elsewhere in DPRK state media alluding to the struggle against the U.S. and others amid ongoing denuclearization negotiations.

Speaking at the banquet, Díaz-Canel “voiced his will to meet all challenges by the hostile forces and to invariably carry forward the traditional friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries.”

An editorial in Sunday’s Rodong Sinmun welcoming the Cuban state visit also prominently featured this idea, saying the two countries “are moving forward shoulder to shoulder in the joint struggle against the imperialists’ policy of aggression and war and for peace and the victory of socialist cause.”

“Today the Cuban people hold higher the banner of anti-imperialist independence and socialism in the face of tough sanctions and pressure by the imperialists under the guidance of Raul Castro Ruz and Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez true to the behests of Fidel Castro Ruz,” it added.

U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton last Friday said the Trump administration was tightening sanctions, closing loopholes, and was poised to impose new designations on dozens of Cuban military and intelligence individuals, describing Havana as being part of a “Troika of Tyranny” alongside Venezuela and Nicaragua.

Cuban state outlet Prensa Latina’s coverage of the DPRK visit also said the country “supports the process of rapprochement and ongoing dialogue on the Korean Peninsula as a way to achieve lasting peace in the region, and opposes the unilateral and arbitrary sanctions against Pyongyang.”

The two also reportedly discussed during talks at the Paekhwawon State Guest House “exchanges in various fields including economy, culture, public health, science and technology to meet common interests,” KCNA reported on Monday.

The two countries enjoy a “special friendship” based on a shared “socialist principle” and a long history of cooperation and friendship, it added.

During the first day of Díaz-Canel’s visit, the Cuban President was treated to crowds of Pyongyang citizens mobilized to line the streets to wave at the passing motorcade on the way into town from the airport – similar to those most recently seen during South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s visit in September.

Kim and Díaz-Canel also attended an arts performance featuring the Samjiyon Orchestra and the reappearance of the Moranbong Electronic Ensemble, where Cuban songs and other odes to socialism were played.

The visit marks the first from a Cuban leader to North Korea since Fidel Castro’s 1986 trip to Pyongyang, and comes almost 60 years after veteran revolutionary Ché Guevara traveled there in 1960.

Díaz-Canel has visited North Korea before, however, having traveled to Pyongyang and met Kim Jong Un in his capacity as Cuban Vice President back in 2015.

No North Korean leader has ever visited Havana.

Díaz-Canel is also set to also meet with President of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly Kim Yong Nam, according to Cuba’s foreign ministry.

He will depart Pyongyang on Tuesday on his way towards China, Vietnam, and Laos.

Press Availability
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Washington Foreign Press Center
Washington, DC
November 5, 2018


MODERATOR: Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the Foreign Press Center. We are pleased to have with us this morning Secretary Pompeo and Secretary Mnuchin. They’ll both have some opening remarks and then hopefully we’ll have time for one or two questions afterwards.

Secretary Pompeo, please.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Hey, Robert. Thank you. Good morning, everyone. It’s great to be here at the Foreign Press Center. It’s great to see you all. In May of this year, after President Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal, the Trump administration announced a new strategy to fundamentally alter the behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s leadership. At the center of this effort – and there are multiple lines of effort – but at the center of it is an unprecedented campaign of economic pressure. Our objective is to starve the Iranian regime of the revenue it uses to fund violent and destabilizing activities throughout the Middle East, and indeed around the world.

Our ultimate goal is to convince the regime to abandon its current revolutionary course. Just look at what happened last week. Denmark announced it had uncovered an Iranian regime assassination plot on its own soil. The Iranian regime has a choice. It can either do a 180-degree turn from its outlaw course of action and act like a normal country, or it can see its economy crumble.

We hope a new agreement with Iran is possible, but until Iran makes changes in the 12 ways that I listed in May, we will be relentless in exerting pressure on the regime. As a reflection of that resolve, today we’re reimposing all sanctions that were previously lifted under the nuclear deal. This includes sanctions on energy, banking, shipping, and shipbuilding industries.

Since the Trump administration came into office, we’ve done 19 rounds of sanctions targeting 168 Iranian entities. Today’s sanctions will accelerate the rapid decline of international economic activity in Iran since the implementation of our strategy in May. Since that time, since back in May, over 100 companies have withdrawn from Iran or canceled plans to do business there. It should be noted that if a company evades our sanctions regime and secretly continues sanctionable commerce in the Islamic Republic, the United States will levy severe, swift penalties on it, including potential sanctions. I promise you that doing business with Iran in defiance of our sanctions will ultimately be a much more painful business decision than pulling out of Iran and it – being connected to Iran entirely.

More than 20 importing nations have zeroed out their imports of crude oil already, taking more than one million barrels of crude per day off the market. The regime today, since May, has lost over $2.5 billion in oil revenue. We have decided to issue temporary allotments to a handful of countries responsible to specific circumstances and to ensure a well-supplied oil market. The U.S. will be granting these exemptions to China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey. Each of those countries has already demonstrated significant reductions of the purchase of Iranian crude over the past six months, and indeed two of those eight have already completely ended imports of Iranian crude and will not resume as long as the sanctions regime remains in place. We continue negotiations to get all of the nations to zero.

Additionally today, 100 percent of the revenue Iran receives from the sale of oil will be held in foreign accounts. Iran can only use this money for humanitarian trade or bilateral – in bilateral nonsanctioned goods.

Speaking of Iran’s nuclear program, we have decided to grant narrow and temporary waivers that permit the continuation of three nonproliferation projects currently underway. Allowing these activities to continue for the time being will improve ongoing oversight of Iran’s civil nuclear program and make these facilities less susceptible to illicit and illegal nuclear uses. Rest assured Iran will never come close to getting a nuclear weapon on President Trump’s watch.

I will now turn it over to Secretary Mnuchin.

SECRETARY MNUCHIN: Thank you. Today the United States is executing on the final actions to withdraw on the Obama administration’s fatally flawed Iran deal. This morning, we will fully impose sanctions on the Iranian regime. This is part of a maximum unprecedented economic pressure campaign the United States is waging against the world’s largest state sponsor of terror. Today we sanctioned more than 700 individuals, entities, aircraft, and vessels as part of Treasury’s largest ever single day action targeting Iran. Over 300 of those sanctions are new targets. In addition, we are relisting hundreds of individuals and entities that were previously sanctioned, granted sanctions relief under the JCPOA.

These powerful sanctions directly target Iran’s banking, energy, and shipping sectors. The Iranian regime has funneled billions of dollars for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps force through the banking sector. Today’s designation includes 50 Iranian banks and their foreign and domestic subsidiaries in conduction with Iran’s regime support for international terrorism, proliferation of mass destruction, or their means of delivery and human rights abuses.

Our actions include the identification of more than 400 targets, including over 200 persons and vessels in Iran’s shipping and energy sector; Iran Air, the national airline of Iran, and more than 65 aircraft; the placement of nearly 250 persons in associated block properties on the Specially Designated Nationals list; the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.

Over the last five months, Treasury has implemented some of the most impactful sanctions ever seen. Combined with the previous actions, more than 900 Iran-related targets have been sanctioned under this administration in less than two years, marking the highest-ever level of U.S. economic pressure on Iran. We are making it abundantly clear to the Iranian regime that they will face mounting financial isolation until they fundamentally change their destabilizing behavior.

Iran’s leaders must cease support for terrorism and end destructive regional activities immediately. They must stop ballistic missiles and abandon their nuclear ambitions if they seek a path to sanctions relief. We are watching the Iranian regime with laser focus. If they try to evade our sanctions, we will take action to disrupt their activity time and time again.

The maximum pressure exerted by the United States is only going to mount from here. Companies around the world need to know we will be strictly enforcing our sanctions. Thank you.

MODERATOR: That – we’ll have time for a few questions. Let’s go to Sky News, Cordelia Lynch.

QUESTION: Hello, this is a question for Secretary Pompeo. The President invoked Game of Thrones when he was discussing sanctions. Do you think that was appropriate?

SECRETARY POMPEO: This administration has been consistent from, frankly, President Trump’s campaign to the first day he was inaugurated about our intention. We understand that the Islamic Republic of Iran presents a threat to the United States of America, and we are determined to stop it. And much has been made about this Game of Thrones. Qasem Soleimani responded, and I haven’t seen any of you comment on that. This is a man who has American blood on his hands. He’s killed American soldiers, and that’s not funny. And the actions that the Islamic Republic of Iran are taking are not about little silly things that people get wrapped up here in Washington, D.C., but about very serious matters that impact all of Europe, all the Middle East and the world, and our young men and women who are in harm’s way today.

MODERATOR: Thank you, sir. Next question is going to be Asahi Shimbun, Yuko Lanham. Yuko?

All right. We’re going to move on to EFE, Beatriz Pascual Macias.

QUESTION: Hi, thank you very much. Thank you very much. I was wondering, what could you say to the European countries that were expecting to be in this list of countries that are not going to suffer the sanctions? And what kind of relation have you have with them, what are the conversations regarding this topic? Thank you.

SECRETARY POMPEO: You want to talk about on the financial side, Steven?

SECRETARY MNUCHIN: Well, I don’t think we’ve ever said that it relates to the European countries, that they’ll be exempt. I think quite the contrary. We’ve said that we expect them to honor the sanctions. Having said that, there are certain transactions that they can continue to do, whether they’re humanitarian transactions or specific trade in the restricted accounts. And again, let me just emphasize, as I said last week, we will make sure that humanitarian transactions are really going for those purposes. So this is not about hurting the people of Iran, but we will not let money be diverted to humanitarian purposes and then put for terrorist activities.

SECRETARY POMPEO: And then just to follow up, with respect to the relationship, we’ve been very candid and clear with all of the European countries. There are more than three, we should note. Many of them are fully supportive of what it is that we are undertaking. They have taken a different approach with respect to the JCPOA, but it is also something that the whole world should know. European businesses have already made their decisions. They’ve decided not to do business with the Islamic Republic of Iran, and so we’re very confident that the sanctions regime that we’re putting in place will be effective.

MODERATOR: Al Jazeera English, James Bays.

QUESTION: James Bays from Al Jazeera English. You talk about the destabilizing behavior of Iran in the region. How does that differ from the behavior of Saudi Arabia?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So let me just go through the list: Underwriting Lebanese Hizballah, that presents a threat to the United States of America and Israel; underwriting the Houthis in Yemen, causing an enormous conflict to take place there in that country; the efforts in Iraq to undermine the Iraqi Government, funding Shia militias that are not in the best interests of the Iraqi people; their efforts in Syria; the list goes on. The difference in behavior between those two countries is remarkable. Since we’ve taken office, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been very supportive of our efforts on counterterrorism. They’ve assisted us. I know Secretary Mnuchin has worked with them on a couple of projects as well. It is completely clear the Islamic Republican of Iran is the destabilizing force in the Middle East today.

Do you want to add to that?

SECRETARY MNUCHIN: No, I think it’s well said.

MODERATOR: Last question. Let’s go to TASS, Dmitry Kirsanov.

QUESTION: Thank you. Gentlemen, thanks a lot for coming over to brief us. For Secretary Pompeo. Sir, you mentioned that three waivers have been issued for the civilian nuclear energy project. Could you clarify what those are? And Bushehr nuclear power plant, will it be the one under the waiver? Thank you.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you. That’s a great question. It’s a pretty complicated area, that nonproliferation issue. There are three. Bushehr is one of the three. But if I may, we will get out a full fact sheet on that here in the next hour or so that you’ll all be able to see. What we’ve authorized is very narrow, very limited, very time limited as well, but important nonetheless that these nonproliferation projects are not things that are taking place without some ability to see what’s going on, and we’ll give you the full details of the scope of those waivers.

MODERATOR: We have time for – this is the last one. Let’s go right to the front, right here, please.

QUESTION: Thank you. Roj Zalla with RUDAW TV in Iraqi Kurdistan. Mr. Secretary, Iran has very powerful hands in Iraq. Are you not concerned that with these sanctions Iran might increase the pressure on some of your allies in Iraq? And in that case, what can you do to reassure those allies?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So it’s a very reasonable question. Here’s the facts. Since the United States entered the JCPOA in 2015, Iran has turned up the heat on those very entities to which you’re referring. So we have a history, we have data set, we have a historical basis upon which to say that we know that the JCPOA didn’t impede Iran one bit from putting pressure on Kurdistan, pressure in Baghdad, pressure throughout the region. We are very hopeful that the set of efforts we’re undertaking – we’ve focused here on the financial and economic, but the full range of efforts we’re taking to push back against the Islamic Republic of Iran will have the intended effect of reducing Iran’s capacity to be destabilizing and present risk to the Middle East, to Europe, and the world.

MODERATOR: With that, that concludes this morning’s briefing. Thank you very much to Secretaries Pompeo and Mnuchin.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you all

MODERATOR: Thank you, sir. Thank you all

  • It looks like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," the game whose success paved the way for "Fortnite: Battle Royale," is coming to the PlayStation 4.
  • The game hasn't officially been announced, but files for the game are present in the PlayStation 4 game database, and the online PSN store.
  • "PUBG" is one of the most popular action games on PC, but it's been console exclusive to the Xbox One for the past year.

It looks like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," the game that is largely credited with sparking the popularity of battle royale shooting games like "Fortnite: Battle Royale," is set for release on PlayStation 4.

While Bluehole, the game's developer, has yet to confirm a PS4 release date, fans have discovered files on PlayStation 4 consoles and in Sony's online PlayStation Network store. Last month the South Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee leaked ratings for a PlayStation 4 version of the game as well. A representative for the game declined to comment. 

"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," or "PUBG," was officially released on PC in May 2017 and has been console exclusive to the Xbox One since December 2017. The game was in Microsoft's Xbox Game Preview program until September 4th, when version 1.0 was officially released. The mobile version of the game is also one of the most popular video games in China.

Like "Fortnite: Battle Royale" and other games that it inspired, "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" throws 100 players onto a single map with scattered resources. Players need to find weapons and items to defend themselves as the safe areas of the map begin to shrink. The last player or team surviving at the end of the round is the winner.

Though "PUBG" helped pioneer the battle royale genre, the game has seen its star wane, even as rivals like "Fortnite" have skyrocketed to success and challengers like "Call of Duty's" Blackout and "Battlefield V's" Firestorm continue to crop up. and. "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" has a smaller development team than those games and has struggled to keep up with the demands of a massive community.

In November of 2017, "PUBG" was averaging 1.3 million players each day, according to SteamCharts, which tracks players on Steam, the most popular platform for PC games. The average number of daily "PUBG" players has since dwindled to about 450,000 over the last 30 days.

Still, "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" remains one of the three most popular games on Steam by a wide margin, alongside "Dota 2" and "CounterStrike: Global Offensive." 

With "PUBG" available on multiple platforms, players are wondering if Bluehole will be able to implement cross-platform play. Earlier this year "Fortnite" became the first game to offer cross-platform play between the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices. Bluehole has expressed interest in allowing cross-platform play in the past, but nothing has been confirmed.

"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" is currently available on PC and Xbox One for $29.99. This hypothetical PS4 version will likely carry a similar price.

          ELECTION DAY! Wonkagenda For Tues., Nov. 6, 2018      Cache   Translate Page      


Morning Wonketariat! Here's some of the things we may be talking about today.


Dear Crom, it's Election Day and we've been chugging coffee since 3:00 AM! The New York Times has a good infographic on when polls open and close, as well as some of the most important races to watch. The National Weather Service is warning people in the Midwest and the Southern East Coast to prepare for nasty storms, so plan accordingly! Crappy weather historically depresses voter turnout, so grab your coat and your wellies, carpool with your neighbors and roommates, or just take the damn bus! Get your ass to the polls!

Trump's bolted around the country to scare the piss out of his base of elderly and/or non-college educated white people. In a last ditch effort to grab women voters by the pussy, Trump brought in Ivanka, Kellyanne Conway, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders to talk about being moms and hopefully close his gigantic gender gap. This could be a problem as Trump's been calling "the accuser" of Justice Rapey McPrivilege a goddamn liar, adding that the accusations against Justice Privileges were a "fake" and a "scam." Real classy!

In an interview with Sinclair Broadcasting, Trump acknowledged that he's been a complete asshole, but then he went and did a rally with Sean Hannity, Jeanine Pirro, and Rush Limbaugh to complain about the Mexican Muslim taco truck invasion, and lie through his teeth Democratic candidates.

Here's a nice photo essay about what the last few days of campaigning has looked like across the country.

The Trump administration wants SCOTUS to decide whether or not Trump has to give DACA kids a slice of the American Dream, filing three petitions from three appeals courts that seek rulings on whether or not federal courts have jurisdiction in allowing taco trucks on every corner.

SCOTUS has declined to hear a challenge by the Trump administration to overturn a lower court ruling that upheld Obama-era net neutrality rules. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Rapey McPrivilege had to recuse themselves, leaving only Justices Thomas, Alito and Gorsuch to bitch and moan into the ethernet cables. The decision is a minor win for us proles, but a crucial step towards saving the interwebs from the clutches of Ma Bell.

FCC Chairman and piece of shit Ajit Pai wants telecom companies to stop all those obnoxious spoofed robocalls. In May, Pai took the unusual step of demanding his corporate overlords develop a system to authenticate phone calls, but Democratic FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel says we could be doing even more by mandating telecoms put a system in place by 2019, like Canada.

A federal judge in North Carolina says the Interior Department doesn't have the authority to lift a ban on killing endangered red wolves just because a couple of rednecks got pissy and started a slaughter lobby. The judge put the US Fish and Wildlife Service on blast by reminding the service of its own statement, "Wildlife are not the property of landowners but belong to the public and are managed by state and federal governments for the public good."

Gabe Sherman gossips that Trump's minions are really worried Robert Mueller has a target on DJTJ. At Hope Hicks's 30th birthday (sans Rob Porter -- GOOD!), numerous Trumps fondly recalled the "the old times," and wondered what the hell happened to Rudy Giuliani. Over on Pennsylvania Ave., Trump's minions are scrambling to figure how to deal with a Democratic House that's ready to start launching investigations on Day One.

US Border Patrol has decided that Election Day is the best day for a crowd control exercise in El Paso, Texas -- the homebase of Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke -- right by the polling place in the heavily Hispanic Chihuahuita neighborhood. This must be what Ted Cruz got in exchange for giving Trump a rimjob.

Assuming Democrats can take control of the House, the fight for leadership could come down to the Congressional Black Caucus. Candidates might rail about supporting Nancy Pelosi on the campaign trail, but congressional insiders are bracing for a cloakroom slobberknocker between Rep. Hakeem Jeffries and Rep. Jim Clyburn.

It's looking like Georgia's gubernatorial race may come down to a runoff between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp. If no candidate gets more than 50 percent tonight, candidates have to spend MORE money to convince voters to drag their asses back to the polls on December 5th and vote again after the Independent spoiler is booted off the ballot.

Illinois senators Tammy Duckworth and Dick Durbin are calling on the state's public health director Nirav Shah to resign following revelations that the administration of Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner attempted to hide a 2015 outbreak of Legionnaires' disease at veterans homes. According to records obtained by Chicago NPR affiliate WBEZ, top Rauner aides withheld vital information about the extent of the health crisis from the media and state lawmakers so as to minimize bad press and obfuscate the deaths.

Iowa Republican Rep and white supremacist Steve King is doubling down on his anti-gay and pro-Nazi bullshit, criticizing the NRCC for supporting a gay candidate in California -- even though there are no gay Republican candidates running in California! Last night King was caught hanging out with the one of the writers of Nazi blog, American Renaissance.

Maine's jerkoff Republican Gov. Paul LePage says he's "done with politics" and is moving to Florida "for tax reasons." He says he may get a job teaching for a university, and that he doesn't plan on paying any income tax.

Fun Fact: Maine will be the first state to use ranked-choice voting for its House and Senate races this year! Nerdy political scientists think it's a way we could help rebalance our elections so they're actually more democratic. San Francisco used ranked-choice earlier this year, and it (eventually) turned out all right. [RadioLab Podcast] [Vox 'Splainer]

Iran is claiming the Israelis have created a new version of the Stuxnet malware that was trying to "harm the country's communication infrastructures." The original Stuxnet, created during the Bush 43 administration, shut down Iran's uranium enrichment program.

The US involvement in the JCPOA is dead after the Trump administration officially imposed the "toughest ever" sanctions on Iran -- though it did grant waivers to China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey to continue buying oil from Teheran, a move the Iranians called "a great victory." In a televised address, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the US is acting unfairly, and that Iran "will probably break the sanctions."

Nazi Twitter-clone "Gab" is back online. Robert Monster (not a joke!), CEO of web hosting site Epik, posted a rambling dog and pony screed about freedumbs, and censorship, and the First Amendment.

Last night Facebook said it pulled down 30 accounts and 85 Instagram accounts "that may have been engaged in coordinated inauthentic behavior" (AKA: election fuckery). Facebook says some of the accounts were "focused on celebrities, others political debate," but it didn't offer any more details. Reuters cites a since deleted passage that noted a tip from the FBI spurred Facebook to wield its ban hammer. Coincidentally, the DHS, DOJ, DNI, and FBI all issued a joint statement yesterday warning that foreign governments, trolls and basement dwelling douche nozzles are still trying to spread santorum-filled propaganda ahead of today's election. Mind you, this is in addition to Jeff Sessions ordering the DOJ's Civil Right Division to monitor 35 jurisdictions in 19 states for good ol' fashioned voter fuckery.

Some science bozos have spotted a UFO in space. NO REALLY! This thing was just cruising through space when suddenly it started picking up speed. It's probably just Charlie Brown's Halloween rock showing up fashionably late.

Samantha Bee is not just reminding everyone to FUCKING VOTE today, she's reminding everyone to vote for the local races! After all, it's the undercard races that can stop gentrification, fix your potholes, or open more polling places!

According to People Magazine, Idris Elba is the Sexiest Man Alive. In an interview, the 46-year-old advised people to "adopt the philosophy that tomorrow is not promised so just go for it today, man."

Not just the women, but the men too!

          Iran officials mock, warn U.S. over renewed sanctions      Cache   Translate Page      
TEHRAN, Iran – The “largest-ever” U.S. sanctions list targeting Iran drew mockery from Iranian officials on Tuesday for including mothballed Boeing 747s, a bank that closed years earlier and a sunken oil tanker that exploded off China months ago.

However, the new list of sanctions, which also aims to cut Iran’s vital oil industry off from international sales, also included for the first time its state airline and its atomic energy commission, further highlighting the maximalist approach of President Donald Trump’s administration.

Trump pulled America out of the 2015 nuclear deal Iran struck with world powers in May. United Nations monitors say Iran still abides by the deal, in which it agreed to limit its uranium enrichment in return for the lifting of international sanctions.

The U.S. Treasury Department imposed penalties on more than 700 Iranian and Iranian-linked individuals, entities, aircraft and vessels in the new sanctions. Among those are 50 Iranian banks and subsidiaries, and more than 200 people and ships.

However, scattered among the list are surprising entries, such as the crude oil tanker Sanchi. That vessel collided with a bulk freighter and caught fire off China’s east coast in January, killing all 32 sailors aboard.

Another entry was Iran’s Tat Bank, which closed in 2012.

Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif took to Twitter to mock some of the targets of the sanctions, describing it as a “desperate” psychological ploy.

“The U.S. designated a bank that was closed 6 years ago, and a ship that sank in a widely televised saga,” he wrote, ending the tweet with “(hashtag)USisIsolated.”

But for the first time, the United States targeted Iran Air. It also sanctioned the state carrier’s mothballed fleet of Boeing 747s, which were manufactured in the 1970s.

It also appeared that the U.S., in another first, was directly sanctioning the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, the government agency that oversees Iran’s nuclear program. Prior sanctions targeted specific subsidiaries of the organization.

Eshaq Jahangiri, President Hassan Rouhani’s senior vice president, also criticized the sanctions.

“Americans think their list is more effective if it is longer,” Jahangiri said, according to the state-run IRNA news agency. He said he had discussed the list with other officials, with many saying it was “less than what we expected.”

Still, Jahangiri warned that “Americans intend to damage economy of the country” through psychological warfare.

Zarif later issued an online video criticizing America’s “indiscriminate assault” on his country.

“The U.S. administration appears to believe that imposing illegal draconian sanctions on Iran will bring about such pain to our nation that it will force us to submit to its will, no matter how absurd, unlawful or fundamentally flawed its demands are.”

Zarif urged America to re-examine its “catastrophes” in the Mideast, including its support for Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Iran is already in the grip of an economic crisis. Its national currency, the rial, now trades at 150,000 to one U.S. dollar; a year ago, it was about 40,500. The economic chaos sparked mass anti-government protests at the end of last year, resulting in nearly 5,000 reported arrests and at least 25 people being killed.

Sporadic smaller demonstrations still reportedly erupt from time to time.

The new sanctions particularly hurt Iran’s vital oil industry, which provides a crucial source of hard currency. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the sanctions already had cost Iran the sale of over 1 million barrels of crude oil a day.

Analysts feared in the run-up to the sanctions that global oil prices could spike on tight supply and increasing demand. However, the Trump administration allowed some of its allies – Greece, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey – as well as rival China to continue to purchase Iranian oil as long as they work to reduce imports to zero. The price of benchmark Brent crude has dropped from over $80 a barrel in recent days.

During a visit to Madrid on Tuesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the U.S. decision to re-impose sanctions on Iran was “not legitimate” and that the rest of the parties to the 2015 nuclear deal abandoned by Washington are working to make economic cooperation with Tehran possible.

Lavrov’s remarks were Russia’s first reaction to Washington’s new list of sanctions against Iran. The Russian diplomat said the sanctions go against international law and practices, and that the U.S. “policies of issuing an ultimatum and making unilateral moves are unacceptable these days.”

          Rep. Chris Collins, Facing Charges of Securities Fraud, Re-Elected in New York      Cache   Translate Page      

Rep. Chris Collins, an early Trump supporter who is fighting an indictment over charges of securities fraud, appeared to win re-election in his Buffalo, New York, area district.

Nate McMurray, a relatively low-profile and poorly funded candidate whom Collins had attacked in a racist ad this fall, conceded the election. McMurray later demanded a recount.

In the controversial ad during the campaign, McMurray, whose wife is originally from South Korea, is seen speaking Korean, in a video the candidate made before the summer’s North Korea summit. In the captions written by Collins’ campaign, the ad suggests McMurray wants “fewer jobs for us” and “more jobs for China and Korea.” At one point, a photo of Kim Jong-un appears in the background.

In August, Collins was arrested in connection to his role on the board of a small Australian biotech firm called Innate Immunotherapeutics. According to federal prosecutors, Collins let his son know about a failed test for a new drug, allowing Cameron and his father-in-law to avoid $750,000 in losses by selling the company’s stock before it dropped. Collins was charged with securities fraud, conspiracy, wire fraud, and making false statements. Previously, the Daily Beast had also reported that Collins had drafted or sponsored several bills that would have directly affected Innate Immunotherapeutics.

Collins has maintained that he is innocent of the charges, but he initially said he would withdraw from the race. He later changed his mind, citing the difficulty of removing his name from the ballot—a valid concern, as the New York Times reported that doing so would have likely led to a lawsuit from the Democrats. Still, it seemed likely even then he would win re-election, as the district is one of New York’s most conservative.

Collins was the first of two early Trump backers to be charged with federal crimes, as California Rep. Duncan Hunter, who is also up for re-election, was indicted two weeks later.

          Hyundai and Grab reveal details on eco ridesharing partnership      Cache   Translate Page      

Hyundai and Grab have released more details about their strategic partnership that was signed at the start of 2018 around ridesharing and electric cars.

At the time of the announcement, Hyundai said it wanted to explore new opportunities in the sharing economy with Grab and enhance its capability to lead future mobility in South East Asia, as well as explore ways to develop and provide innovative services to SEA customers, including a new mobility service platform that will utilise its eco-friendly models such as the IONIQ Electric.

Now, the South Korean automotive giant has announced that part of the agreement will see it investing an additional US$250 million into Grab, to bring the ride-sharing company’s latest financing round to US$2.7 billion, and establish a partnership to pilot electric vehicle (EV) programs across SEA. It did not reveal the amount it invested in Grab in January.

Both parties will also work to bring together stakeholders from the EV industry to collaborate on projects to improve EV adoption and awareness in the region. The projects will focus on utilising EVs to maximise cost efficiencies for Grab’s driver-partners like the building of a network of quick-charge stations, developing customised maintenance packages to Grab EV drivers and conducting research into how EVs can be most efficiently deployed in SEA under hot and humid climate conditions.

“As home to one of the world’s fastest-growing consumer hubs, SEA is a huge emerging market for EVs,” said Dr. Youngcho Chi, chief innovation officer and head of strategy & technology division at Hyundai.

“With its unparalleled footprint across the region and an ever-expanding base of customers and merchants, Grab is an invaluable partner that will help accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in SEA.”


          WND Does More State-Media Work For Trump At Midterms      Cache   Translate Page      

Becoming total pro-Trump state media didn't keep WorldNetDaily from circling the drain not once but twice this year. So what did WND do to prepare its dwindling readership for the midterms? Double down on sucking up to Trump.

An anonymously written Oct. 29 article updated one of WND's old tricks, a dubious list of Trump's alleged "accomplishments":

If Americans want more of deregulation, lower taxes, economic growth, record-low unemployment, job creation, immigration enforcement, border security, a stronger military, conservative judges, improved trade deals and unprecedented foreign policy victories with nations such as North Korea, the party of the person they vote for in congressional elections matters.

Since WND published a list of 183 accomplishments in Trump’s first 14 months, the president has continued to fulfill campaign promises.

Most recently, Brett Kavanaugh became the second judge confirmed to the Supreme Court who interprets the Constitution according to the text, following Neil Gorsuch. The negotiation of a trade deal with Mexico and Canada to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, fulfilled a major campaign vow. Another eight trade deals have been negotiated with Japan, South Korea, Europe and China.

In a typical diplomatic victory, the Trump administration, employing tough sanctions and behind-the-scenes diplomatic maneuvers, secured in October the release of pastor Andrew Brunson from an otherwise defiant Turkish regime, without any apparent concessions.

The only thing more embarrassingly fawning than this article was WND editor Joseph Farah's Nov. 2 column promoting it:

Who knows how things will turn out next Tuesday?

If the results were based on good outcomes, the party supporting the incumbent president might just turn the midterm jinx on its head.

But there’s the media, of course.

There’s also the media-amplifiers at Google and Facebook and Twitter.

Then there’s academia.

There’s also the Big Cities.

There’s the Deep State.

And then there are stupid people.

Otherwise, how could he NOT rock the house?

It shouldn’t even be close.

I’m optimistic. I was in 2016. I said so. In fact, I may have been overly optimistic – even fantasizing about how even New Yorkers and Californians could shock the country with their votes.

But here’s what I want you to do for us right now – before it’s too late.

I want you to spread this BIG, BIG, BIG LIST OF TRUMP ACCOMPLISHMENTS far and wide before Election Day.

It’s truly breathtaking.

[...]

Before Trump, my standard was Reagan. I didn’t think we’d ever see another president like him. I was wrong. He out-conservatived Reagan – without even trying.

Where does the man get the energy, the stamina, the grit?

God bless him.

He did what he said he would do.

How often do you see that?

I can’t even think of a significant disappointment. When has that ever happened?

Farah's full-metal suck-up continued in his Nov. 5 column, with added Divine Donald silliness:

Despite all Donald Trump as done in the last 24 months, and make note of it, we are on the precipice of throwing it all away.

This is what not just the “fake news media” have done. This is what Google and Facebook have wrought on us all when powerful, special interests turn the truth on its head.

Am I throwing in the towel?

Not at all. I have never sold Donald Trump short. He is a force of nature. I’m always been a fan. He has stood boldly and with clarity. But I’m just not sure how far his voice can carry.

Maybe God gave us a stark choice between Barack Obama and Donald Trump and said: “Choose.”

Farah than complained: "There was a time in America at which we could talk to one another, respect differences of opinion and agree to disagree. That is long gone. There is no tolerance for dissent or disagreement." He wrote that without irony, apparently oblivious to his and WND's major role refusing to respect differences of opinion (he refused to call Obama the president, remember?) and his own very thin skin regarding any criticism of him and his website.

And just a few paragraphs earlier, he was demonizing and maliciously mischaracterizing anyone who disagreed with his view of the midterms:

Choose between one who believes in nation-states and one who does not.

Choose between one who breaks the law and one who does not.

Choose between one who fosters the production of wealth and one who does not.

Choose between one who supports life and one who does not.

Choose between one who supports Brett Kavanaugh and one who promotes scurrilous, unsubstantiated accusations.

Choose between one who acts in the best interest of his country and one who does not.

Choose between whether sovereign citizens vote or just anybody.

You get the idea. This is what it has become in the United States of America in 2018. It’s a critical state of the affairs indeed. Though we have been blessed by two years of Donald Trump, the choice is clear, and about half the country appears relatively close to choosing unwisely – whether they have been manipulated or conned.

Is a person who thinks that anyone who disagrees with him must have been  "manipulated or conned" into having those views really sincerely concerned with the failure to "respect differences of opinion and agree to disagree"? Highly unlikely.

          South Korean Library’s Stunning Christmas Book Displays Are A True Page-Turner      Cache   Translate Page      

Images via Starfield Library

Following China’s futuristic “ocean of knowledge,” a library in a South Korean mall has garnered considerable attention online for its beautiful interiors.

Freshly established in 2017, the spacious Starfield Library in Gangnam, Seoul’s Starfield COEX Mall might have already stunned many with its immersive 50,000-book collection and 43-foot-tall shelves, but it’s its new Christmas displays that are making it hard for people to stay hushed.

This week, the library unveiled its collaborative installations with American artist Mike Stillkey, renowned for his fantastical book sculptures, that literally appear to leap right out of a fairytale.

The displays, which take up three walls, feature a bunny and reindeer riding their sleds down snowy peaks with lit-up fir trees in the distance, two cats dancing atop a blue-furred bear, and cycling animals.

This is the sort of world that avid readers talk about getting drawn into.

          Take it to the bank!      Cache   Translate Page      
In the Washington Post (of all places), Mark Thiesson praises President Trump's record of keeping his promises.
...when it comes to the real barometer of presidential truthfulness — keeping his promises — Trump is a paragon of honesty. For better or worse, since taking office Trump has done exactly what he promised he would.

Trump kept his promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, something his three immediate predecessors also promised yet failed to do. He promised to “crush and destroy ISIS,” and two years later he is on the verge of eliminating the Islamic State’s physical caliphate. He promised to impose a travel ban on countries that he saw as posing a terrorist threat, and after several false starts the final version of his ban was upheld by the Supreme Court. He promised to punish Syria if it used chemical weapons on its people, and, unlike his immediate predecessor, he followed through — not once but twice.

Trump pledged to nominate Supreme Court justices “in the mold of Justice [Antonin] Scalia,” and now Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh sit on the high court. Trump also pledged to fill the federal appellate courts with young, conservative judges, and so far the Senate has confirmed 29 — more than any recent president at this point in his administration.

Trump vowed to pass historic tax reforms and signed the first major overhaul of the tax code in three decades. He vowed an unprecedented regulatory rollback, with a strict policy to eliminate two existing regulations for every new regulation. In his first year, he achieved $8.1 billion in lifetime regulatory savings and is on track to achieve an additional $9.8 billion this year.

During the campaign, he told African American voters, “What do you have to lose? . . . I will straighten it out. I’ll bring jobs back. We’ll bring spirit back.” On his watch, African American unemployment reached the lowest level ever recorded, and his tax reform included a little-noticed provision creating “Opportunity Zones” to try to revitalize struggling towns and inner-city communities.

Trump promised to cancel President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan, withdraw from the Paris climate accord, approve the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, and open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil exploration. He fulfilled all of those pledges.

On trade, he kept his promise to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and impose tariffs on steel and aluminum. He also committed to renegotiating NAFTA and the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement — and recently signed new deals with Mexico, Canada and South Korea. He committed to imposing tariffs on China to force it to open its markets and stop its theft of intellectual property — and is following through on that pledge. Whatever one thinks of Trump’s trade policies, he is doing exactly what he said.

The president pledged historic increases in defense spending, and delivered. He pledged to bring back manufacturing jobs, and manufacturing jobs are growing at the fastest pace in more than two decades. He pledged to sign “Right to Try” legislation to give dying Americans access to experimental treatments, and did. He pledged to take on the opioid epidemic and will soon sign a sweeping bipartisan opioids package into law.

Where Trump has failed to keep promises, such as building the wall or repealing Obamacare, it has not been for a lack of trying. Only in a few rare instances has he backtracked on a campaign pledge — such as when he admitted that he was wrong to promise a complete withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan and reversed course. I’m glad he did.

But whether one agrees or disagrees is not the point. When Trump says he will do something, you can take it to the bank. Yes, he takes liberties with the truth. But unlike his predecessor, he did not pass his signature legislative achievement on the basis of a lie (“If you like your health care plan, you can keep it ”) — which is clearly worse than falsely bragging that your tax cut is the biggest ever.

The fact is, in his first two years, Trump has compiled a remarkable record of presidential promise - keeping. He’d probably say it’s the best in history — which may or may not end up being true. It’s too soon to tell.

          Promote FODPAL stories on Legiontown      Cache   Translate Page      

American Legion posts and Legion Family members provide service year-round to veterans and their families, active-duty servicemembers, youth and community members. And the Legion wants to hear these stories.

The Legiontown website can showcase multiple stories at once, allows Legion Family members to feature links to YouTube videos created by them, and enables stories to be shared throughout social media. This sharing will promote the many ways Legion Family members dedicate themselves to a cause greater than themselves, and applies just as much to those belonging to FODPAL posts and departments.

The Legion wants you to share your good experiences, whether it’s welcome-home celebrations for returning servicemembers, membership drives, honor and remembrance stories, visiting patients at a VA hospital, sponsoring young men and women to Boys and Girls State, hosting fundraisers, donating to Legion charities, or converting a post into a makeshift shelter for victims affected by a natural disaster. Posts, Sons squadrons and Auxiliary units are turning ordinary communities into Legiontowns every day.

For many Legion Family members, these services go unnoticed, but not for those who share their stories on Legiontown. The sharing of stories provides inspiration to posts, squadrons and units everywhere on how to promote the Legion in their communities. Registration is free.

One FODPAL post making good use of Legiontown is Col. Lewis L. Millett Memorial Post 38 in Seoul, South Korea; post historian Don Wong makes a habit of uploading everything from observances of Four Chaplains Day, to visits to American graves in area cemeteries.

This report studies the Silicon Wafer market. Semiconductor silicon wafers are key component of integrated circuits such as those used to power computers, cell phones, and a wide variety of other devices. A silicon wafer consists of a thin slice of silicon which can be treated in various ways, depending on the type of electronics that is being used. Silicon has a very high quality semiconductor, making it ideal for the production of such circuits.

Due to the increase in global DRAM and 3D NAND Flash shipments in 2016 and the limited capacity of silicon international manufacturers, coupled with the large-size silicon project failed to achieve shipments in mainland, resulting in global wafer supply tight. The capacity utilization of major wafer suppliers reached 100%.

In 2017, the 300mm wafers are the main products of the silicon wafer market with a share of 66%.

The sanctions are essentially the same ones lifted by the nuclear deal reached during the Obama administration.

Pompeo called them "temporary" exemptions that would help "ensure a well-supplied oil market." Several

          The world ready to help Iran circumvent US 'revolutionary' sanctions      Cache   Translate Page      
The second package of US sanctions against Iran came into effect on November 5. At the same time, eleven Iranian tankers disappeared from the international tracking system. What else can Iran come up with to circumvent the sanctions?The US sanctions against Iran prohibit purchasing Iranian oil. Washington made an exception for several countries - China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey. The sanctions also prohibit the entry of tankers into Iranian ports. The chartering of Iranian ships was also prohibited. The sanctions were imposed on dollar deals between foreign banks and the Central Bank of Iran. To crown it all, Iran was banned from accessing the currency that the country keeps in foreign accounts. On November 6, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications, SWIFT, suspended several Iranian banks from accessing to its messaging system in the interests of stability and integrity of the broader global financial system.Vladimir Fitin, the head of the Center for the Near and Middle East, told Pravda.Ru that Iran has a rich experience in the struggle against sanctions. Teheran is used to living under strict economic sanctions. "When the United States decided to exit the Iran deal, the EU expressed its opposition to the sanctions, let alone China, Russia and other key Iranian partners, such as India, Indonesia, South Korea and Japan.According to Vladimir Fitin, Europe and other countries will set up new companies to circumvent the sanctions. They will be the companies that have no official affiliation with parent companies that are strongly linked to the American market. "Russia can hardly use the Iranian experience, because the West has not imposed sanctions on the Russian oil sector. Russia still insists on the need for the Iranian nuclear deal, as well as on the need to continue cooperation with Iran," the expert told Pravda.Ru. The US Treasury had imposed sanctions on more than 700 Iranian individuals and organizations, including the National Oil Company, 70 financial organizations, 50 Iranian banks, as well as Iran Air airline and 67 of its aircraft. Prior to the introduction of the second package of sanctions, Iran produced 3.5 million barrels of oil per day and exported 2.5-2.6 million barrels with China and India being its largest buyers. According to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the goal of the sanctions is to force Tehran to stop supporting Hezbollah, Hamas, insurgents in Yemen and militia in Iraq. The US also wants Iran to withdraw its troops from Syria. Meanwhile, the European Union intends to create an alternative of the SWIFT payment system for Iran to help countries buy oil from Iran bypassing US sanctions. China, for example, has its own payment system, which was put into effect in 2012.The real goal of the sanctions is plain to see: the Americans want to put pressure on the Iranian people, to orchestrate a "color revolution" in the country and topple the "anti-Zionist" regime. However, the Iranians are a consolidated nation, and they have never succumbed to external pressure in 40 years of history of the Islamic Republic of Iran. It was noted that eleven Iranian supertankers disappeared from satellite tracking systems after the announcement of the second package of sanctions - the tankers deactivated their satellite transponders.

Future Market Insights delivers in-depth global market analysis and forecast in a new report titled "Medical Tourism Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2014 - 2020"

Valley Cottage, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/07/2018 -- Medical tourism is one of the most dynamically growing industries today. Considered to be the direct impact of globalisation of healthcare, medical tourism certainly exhibits strong growth potential globally. However, based on FMI's research, the market of medical tourism is expected to concentrate within most of the emerging economies of the world.

As developing nations are increasingly heading toward technological advancement and quality services in the medical and healthcare sector, the global medical tourism market is anticipated to witness robust growth over 2014-2020, predominantly in Asian countries.

The top treatments people travel abroad for, include cancer therapy, cardiovascular surgeries, orthopaedic treatments, dentistry, cosmetic surgeries, reproductive treatments, weight loss therapies, health screenings, and medical tests and scans. In severe cases, a sizeable patient population also seeks second opinion from specialist doctors out of their countries.

Key Drivers

High treatment costs and lengthy waiting times for medical procedures, being the two major factors in driving medical tourism, are also supported by easier and cheaper international travel. While the U.K.'s population prefers to travel abroad for bypassing long waits, patients from the U.S. travel outside for availing of treatments at cheaper costs.

Medical excellence along with international accreditation are the key factors fuelling a majority of international patient flow, eventually boosting international medical tourism. Currently, over 600 medical departments and hospitals all over the globe are accredited by the U.S. Joint Commission International (JCI). The number of accredited facilities is projected to increase almost by 20% each year. This is another important driver associated with the market growth.

Developing countries, with ever-evolving innovation and demonstrable achievements in medical research are estimated to accelerate the approaching medical tourist flow over the forecast period. Growing healthcare investments by various government and private sectors are also anticipated to further bolster the market growth.

Key Restraints

However, medical tourists are highly prone to a wide variety of health risks after they return. The conditions may include TB, paratyphoid, amoebic dysentery, deep vein thrombosis, and more; usually caused due to poor post-operative care and inadequate rest. This could affect the market to some extent.

Stringent documentation processes, issues related to visa approval, and limited insurance coverage are reportedly some of the most deterring factors for the global market.

Global Medical Tourism Market: Segmentation

FMI's research on the global medical tourism market offers a six-year forecast, segmenting the market on the basis of type of medical treatment and geography.

On the basis of the type of treatment, the market is segmented into cosmetic treatment, cardiovascular treatment, fertility treatment, dental treatment, orthopaedic treatment, and other general treatments.

On the basis of geography, the market is segmented into Asia pacific, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, North America, and South America.

Regional Outlook

Some of the prominent medical tourism centres across the globe include Thailand, India, South Korea, Taiwan, Costa Rica, Israel, Brazil, Turkey, the Philippines, Dubai, Singapore, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Canada, and the U.S. According to Patients Beyond Borders, the global medical tourism market is currently growing at an impressive rate between 15% and 25%, and the flow of patients seeking cross-border treatment options will be the highest in Mexico. South and Southeast Asia are expected to dominate the global market in the near future.

Based on MTA's recently released Medical Tourism Index, there are 41 countries participating in the global medical tourism market. While India broadly secures #1, Israel ranks #1 in the quality of services and facilities.

India is renowned for specialist cardiac surgeries, while Singapore is a popular medical tourism destination owing to the expertise in complicated surgical procedures. Thailand has been a popular destination for medical tourism and millions of patients have travelled to Thailand since 2006. It is also the top cosmetic surgery centre globally.

Malaysia offers state-of-the-art medical infrastructure and treatments by highly skilled medical professionals, making it another sought after centre among medical tourists. With economically affordable treatment options and favourable government initiatives, Malaysia is anticipated to acquire one of the top market positions in the global medical tourism market, during the forecast period.

Key Players: Global Medical Tourism Market

Some of the top key players in the medical tourism industry include Asian Heart Institute (India), Apollo Hospitals (India), Prince Court Medical Centre (Malaysia), Gleneagles Hospital (Singapore), Min-Sheng General Hospital (Taiwan), Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital (Bangkok), Raffles Medical Group (Singapore), Clemenceau Medical Centre (Lebanon), Bangkok Hospital (Thailand), Bumrungrad International Hospital (Thailand), Fortis Healthcare Ltd. (India), Wooridul Spine Hospital (Korea), KPJ Healthcare Berhad (Malaysia), Anadolu Medical Centre (Turkey), and Asklepios Klinik Barmbek (Germany).

          Angelina Jolie Calls For Lasting Ceasefire In Yemen      Cache   Translate Page      

UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie has called for the urgent establishment of a ceasefire in Yemen and a lasting settlement to the conflict.

She welcomed recent discussion of a halt to hostilities, and called on the United Nations Security Council, working with countries in the region, to find a negotiated end to the conflict and to uphold international laws on the protection of civilians. She appealed for greater understanding of refugee protection laws, and for all countries to play their part in alleviating the human suffering in Yemen.

Jolie is currently visiting South Korea, where several hundred Yemenis are being hosted after fleeing the conflict.

She said: “As an international community we have been shamefully slow to act to end the crisis in Yemen. We have watched the situation deteriorate to the point that Yemen is now on the brink of man-made famine, and facing the worst cholera epidemic in the world in decades. When conflict develops to this extent, many people have no choice but to flee if they are to have any chance of survival. The only way to enable refugees to return home, and to bring down the overall numbers worldwide, is to end conflicts themselves. I hope there can be greater understanding of the human realities causing people to flee, the strict legal criteria and process by which refugee status is determined by UNHCR, working with national authorities, and our shared responsibility to assist refugees until they can return home. Without a global response based on international law and collective responsibility, we risk much greater instability and insecurity over the long term, which would have a negative impact on all countries.”

Angelina Jolie is in South Korea in her role as a Special Envoy for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, advocating for vitally needed support for refugees globally. Her visit to Seoul follows that of UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi on 23-24 October.

Meeting with South Korean Justice Minister Park Sang-ki, who heads the ministry responsible for domestic refugee policies, Jolie expressed appreciation for South Korea’s efforts to help around 500 Yemenis who arrived in the country’s tourist island of Jeju in May. She acknowledged the importance of the thorough procedures and vetting in place as well as efforts to provide protection until the time when they are able to safely return to their country of origin. She also expressed UNHCR’s wish to work more closely with the Korean authorities on strengthening their asylum system.

Angelina Jolie conveyed UNHCR’s thanks to the people of South Korea for their support to refugees worldwide.

The private sector in South Korea is donating millions, largely from some 230,000 generous individual donors, demonstrating South Koreans’ strong sense of solidarity with refugees and UNHCR. She noted that South Korea, with its own history of overcoming war and displacement and as one of the largest economies in the world, has the potential to play an important leadership role in the region. Jolie also welcomed South Korea’s recent efforts to achieve peace on the Korean Peninsula.

In Seoul, the Special Envoy also met South Korean actor and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Jung Woo-sung. They discussed the recent public concerns in Korea over the arrival of Yemenis in Jeju, as well as their respective missions with UNHCR. Jolie was a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador from 2001-2012 before she was appointed Special Envoy for the organization. Jung became a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador for Korea in 2015.

          U.S. Renews Sanctions On Iran But Exempts 8 Oil Importers, Including China And Japan      Cache   Translate Page      
Updated at 11:45 a.m. ET The U.S. has officially imposed what the Trump administration calls the "toughest ever" sanctions on Iran, meant to curb Tehran's nuclear and missile programs and contain its growing influence in the Middle East. The sanctions are essentially the same ones lifted by the nuclear deal reached during the Obama administration. However, the U.S. quickly exempted several of the world's largest economies, including China, Japan and India. "The Iranian regime has a choice," U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said as he detailed the sanctions on Monday. "It can either do a 180-degree turn from its current course of action and act like a normal country, or it can see its economy crumble." The waivers issued to eight nations — China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey — allow those countries to continue buying Iranian oil without consequences. Pompeo called them "temporary" exemptions that would help "ensure a well-supplied oil market." Several

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's planned meeting with a senior North Korean official Thursday in New York City has been postponed. The State Department issued a statement early Wednesday morning saying the meeting "will now take place at a later date. We will reconvene when our respective schedules permit.” The statement did not give a reason why the meeting was called off.  Pompeo was slated to hold talks with Kim Yong Chol, a senior advisor to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. In announcing the meeting earlier this week, the State Department said the two men would discuss "making progress on all four pillars of the Singapore Summit joint statement, including achieving the final, fully verified denuclearization" of North Korea.  Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump signed an agreement at their landmark summit in June to rid the Korean peninsula of nuclear weapons, but the two sides have been at odds over the pace of Pyongyang's efforts to end its nuclear weapons program. North Korea warned last week that it will consider reviving its nuclear weapons program if the United States fails to lift its crippling economic sanctions against the regime. It is also seeking a peace treaty with the United States and South Korea that will formally end the 1950-53 Korean War that split the communist North from the democratic South.
          Golden Triangle's Drug Production Expands, Diversifies Amid Opioid Concerns      Cache   Translate Page      
Organized crime groups are expanding and diversifying drug production in Southeast Asia's Golden Triangle amid fears the region could emerge as a hub for synthetic opioids like fentanyl, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). Asia Pacific counter-narcotics police met in Myanmar's capital Naypyitaw on Wednesday to negotiate a new strategy to strangle the supply of chemicals used in synthetic drug production. The Golden Triangle centered on Myanmar's conflict-ridden north has exported illicit drugs to the world for decades. While opium cultivation and heroin trafficking has slumped in recent years, synthetic drug manufacturing - especially methamphetamine - has soared. UNODC regional representative Jeremy Douglas said the boom was "like nothing we have ever seen before, and it has required a matching surge in precursor chemicals." Seizures of methamphetamine sourced from the region have leapt since 2016, with consignments of the highly addictive drug intercepted in South Korea and New Zealand and most countries in between. The price of methamphetamine - both in crystal and pill form - has fallen in many countries according to UNODC data, indicating that large amounts of synthetic drugs are still hitting the streets undetected by law enforcers. "While we are a significant source of illicit drugs, we are not a source of the chemicals," said Myanmar Vice Minister of Home Affairs, Major General Aung Thu, in a press release. The flow of precursor chemicals to northern Myanmar has continued mostly unimpeded. Precursors come mostly from neighboring China, although significant volumes of chemicals and cutting agents from India, Pakistan, Vietnam and Thailand have also been detected in Myanmar. Synthetic Opioids Fear Drug gangs are also starting to produce ketamine in Myanmar's north, a party drug that requires different technical expertise to produce than methamphetamine, said Douglas. "We have seen drug syndicates in the Golden Triangle scale-up methamphetamine and add ketamine to their repertoire. There is increasing concern amongst officials here that they will soon go into manufacturing synthetic opioids," Douglas told Reuters. "Given their sophistication, we think it is only a matter of time they do it. They are ruthless and the region has the conditions necessary for production and pre-existing market demand to capitalize on." he told Reuters. China, along with Mexico, is the major supplier of extremely potent opioids to North America, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The DEA said in a report last week the country was gripped by an "ongoing fentanyl epidemic." There were more than 63,000 drug overdoses in the United States in 2016, a record high. Drug poisoning deaths are the leading cause of injury death in the United States and synthetic opioids are the "most lethal" contributor, the DEA report said. China, which shares a border with northern Myanmar, has begun to crackdown on illicit opioid production. It follows a largely successful campaign to clear out methamphetamine labs in southern China in 2013 and 2014. Myanmar's surge in methamphetamine production followed the China crackdown. Opioids have yet to have much impact on the Asia Pacific drug market, although fentanyl has been imported into Australia recently, Douglas said. Law enforcement agencies from China, India, Southeast Asia, the U.S., Canada and Australia are attending the Naypyitaw conference.

          Simon Black: Warren Buffett has Given us a Major Warning      Cache   Translate Page      
Notes From The Field

By Simon Black

November 6, 2018
Manila, Philippines

Once again Warren Buffett has given us a major warning that everything is expensive

Buffett’s holding company, Berkshire Hathaway, just announced a blockbuster quarter, earning nearly $7 billion.

And Buffett’s still sitting on over $100 billion of cash. That means he’s got enough money to buy almost any company he wants, anywhere in the world.

But the only move Buffett made in the last quarter was buying $928 million of Berkshire Hathaway stock.

Some people might say this is a sign that Buffett thinks Berkshire’s stock is incredibly undervalued.

To be fair, nobody knows Berkshire better than Buffett. And shares may present a good value at this level – an all-time high price.

But it’s clear to me that Buffett simply can’t find anything else worth buying.

Remember, Buffett’s got over $100 billion in cash (and he could use debt to fund an even larger acquisition).

So he could buy stock in any publicly traded company. Or he could buy most any private company (the last time he did this was Precision Castparts in 2016 for $32 billion).

He’s got so much cash he could even buy any one of the 451 out of 500 largest companies in the US – Nike, Starbucks, Goldman Sachs, etc.

But, nope… He just bought back some Berkshire stock.

In addition, he’s selling longtime holdings like drywall maker USG and IBM (for a $1 billion loss).

I wrote about Buffett and his giant cash pile in February, just after Berkshire released its annual report.

Back then, Buffett had a whopping $116 billion. But still couldn’t find anything to buy. As he said:

In our search for new stand-alone businesses, the key qualities we seek are durable competitive strengths; able and high-grade management; good returns on the net tangible assets required to operate the business; opportunities for internal growth at attractive returns; and, finally, a sensible purchase price.

That last requirement proved a barrier to virtually all deals we reviewed in 2017, as prices for decent, but far from spectacular, businesses hit an all-time high.

As we wrote back then, it seems people are still willing to pay far too high a price for not that great of businesses.

Buffett is famous for saying “be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” And he’s sticking by that mantra today.

Like Buffett, I’ve also been raising cash. In fact, I’m sitting on more cash today than at any other time in my life.

And, like Buffett, I’m mostly holding that cash in 28-day T-bills. ​

​However, unlike Buffett, I don’t have $100 billion to spend.

If I make a 20-50% return on a $5 million investment, that’s meaningful to me. But that’s peanuts to a guy like Buffett.

He’s got to put billions of dollars to work to generate enough cash to make a difference. And that severely limits the areas he can hunt for value.

But I’m able to look at all kinds of opportunities – like loans backed by fine wine, loans backed by bullion or European real estate and various, small-cap stocks around the world.

Despite most markets trading at or near all-time highs, there’s still a ton of value if you’re willing to do some extra work and look outside the US.

In The 4th Pillar, Tim Staermose just identified a consumer products company in South Korea trading for a 12% discount to its net cash backing.

He’s also recommended a security that holds portfolio of blue-chip stocks (including companies like Starbucks) trading for over a 20% discount to their market value.

And those are just two of the many opportunities you can take advantage of today in his 4th Pillar portfolio.

Value investing has been left for dead as the dumb money has chased up the value of companies like Uber and Tesla.

But when you can buy a profitable company for less than the amount of cash it has in the bank, it’s pretty hard to go wrong.

I’ll bet Buffett would make those investments if he could.

          Bolton: Iran Sanctions Having "Enormous" Economic Consequences; Iran Is In A Depression       Cache   Translate Page      
National security adviser John Bolton told FBN's Maria Bartiromo on Monday that sanctions have had an "enormous" effect on Iran's economy, driving them into a depression. &quot;We've already seen the consequences in Iran,” Bolton told FOX Business Network's Maria Bartiromo. "The rial, the currency, has declined by 70 percent since the sanctions, inflation has quadrupled. The country is in recession.” MARIA BARTIROMO, MORNINGS WITH MARIA HOST: Joining me right now is National Security Advisor, John Bolton, and it is good to see you, Ambassador. Thank you so much for being here. JOHN BOLTON, NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR OF THE UNITED STATES: Glad to be here. BARTIROMO: So tell me really the teeth on these sanctions. What is it going to do to Iran practically speaking? BOLTON: Well, I think the sanctions in the aggregate are already having an enormous effect on Iran. You know, when the president announced we were withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal in May of this year, big businesses that had prospects or even some trade and investment with Iran weren't going to wait for the sanctions actually to take effect. They've pulled out. They've cut back in many ways, and I think we've already seen the consequences in Iran. The rial, the currency's declined about 70 percent since the sanctions, inflation has quadrupled, the country is in recession. You're seeing riots and demonstrations all around the country just provoked by ordinary citizens. So I think this is going to cut into Iran's ability to continue their nuclear program, the financed terrorism, and to engage in military activity around the Middle East, and I think we're already seeing that. BARTIROMO: Now look, obviously it's taken some oil off the market, but the criticism as The Editorial Board and The Journal wrote over the weekend, one complaint is that the administration has exempted eight countries from sanctions on oil exports from Iran. Are they Japan, South Korea, China, and India? BOLTON: Well, I think those are going to be announced today. Look, the president's policy here is maximum pressure, and I think what he means by maximum pressure is maximum pressure. The aim is to drive Iranian oil exports to zero. We're working with other countries to get alternative supplies for countries that are buying and I think that's critical over an extended period of time. But let's be clear, we're going to have sanctions that even go beyond this. We're not simply going to be content with the level of sanctions that existed under Obama in 2015. More are coming and even more important, perhaps, is we are actually going to have very strict, very tight enforcement of the sanctions that do exist. Iran, right now, is in the escape and evasion mode. They're going to try and get around the sanctions, we're determined to prevent that. BARTIROMO: I know you're going to announce later today that country specifically and the exemptions, but why the waivers? Why put some in a category of having these waivers and others not? BOLTON: Yes, look, I think we've said for a long time, zero should mean zero. But some countries that, for the last three or four years, had been able to purchase oil from Iran needs some time to get down to zero. These are not permanent waivers, no way, we're going to do everything we can to squeeze Iran hard. As the British say, to make -- to squeeze them until the Pips (ph) squeak. BARTIROMO: Wow. BOLTON: And we're going to do everything we can. They're choice and the Mullahs (ph) in Tehran either change their behavior dramatically or face economic disaster. BARTIROMO: This weekend I spoke with Prince Al-Waleed of Saudi Arabia, tell us the importance of the relationship with the one stability in the region, we thought, which was Saudi Arabia, as we face off this behavior from Iran. BOLTON: Look, we've had a deep and important relationship with Saudi Arabia since Franklin Roosevelt. It is a cornerstone of our policy in the Middle East and we want to get to the bottom of what happened to Khashoggi, we want the truth, there's no question about it. It's unacceptable behavior but the relationship is foundational for the United States and we're going to try everything we can to see it through. The other oil producing monarchies in the Gulf region are going to depend on that. Israel sees Saudi Arabia as an important and stabilizing factor and in the struggle for what is really causing tension and danger in the region Iran, we want Saudi on our side. BARTIROMO: I want to get back to that in second, but here's an op-ed from Rick Perry, Energy Secretary Perry writes this in "The Wall Street Journal," the op-ed titled "The World Can Live Without Iranian Oil." So, did America's new role as this energy powerhouse factor into this decision? Maybe the U.S. is at such a level in terms of it's own production, we don't need Middle Eastern oil from Iran anyway. BOLTON: Yes. Well, Rick Perry and the Energy department have done a fantastic job since the president pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal to talk to other countries, to get their production up, to find oil that's suitable for the refineries in countries that had been purchasing from Iran. We've ramped up our own production in America. I think we can get to a point where nobody responsible needs to buy oil from Iran. BARTIROMO: So, let me get back to Saudi Arabia and the Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi. The sons of Khashoggi did an interview recently and they've asked for their father's remains to be returned to the U.S. As I mentioned, Prince Al-Waleed, yesterday with me on "Sunday Morning Futures" in an exclusive interview, here's what he said about that investigation. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) PRINCE AL-WALEED BIN TATAL, PRINCE IN SAUDI ARABIA: I think some people intelligence that commit -- that follow these orders and sent a group of people to Turkey to engage with Jamal Khashoggi and clear something went wrong over there, whereby he was murdered. It does give some time for the investigation to finish and I ask Saudi (ph) (inaudible) publically through a program to have the investigation made public as soon as possible. So whereby, I believe that the Saudi companies will 100 vindictive and exonerated. (END VIDEO CLIP) BARTIROMO: Investor, I realize the relationship with the Saudis is critical, very important in this neighborhood, if you will, but is it NBS to lead? I mean one year ago we were there in Riyadh, he told me in an interview and to the world, he wants to modernize Saudi Arabia. Two weeks later he imprisons all of these ministers, Prince Al-Waleed included, and then a month ago we learn this horrific murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Is he the guy? BOLTON: Look, we have heard both from the king and the crown prince very strongly in a number of conversations directly with President Trump that they had no involvement with this and that they're both committed to getting to the bottom of it. That's what they've said to us and we take them at their word that they're going to do that. BARTIROMO: What are you going to do in terms of monitoring Iran's behavior and whether or not it warrants further sanctions? BOLTON: No, this is the critical phase we're in now. As I say, escape and evasion by Iran. They're going to try and infiltrate the banking systems of other countries. They're going to try and use front companies and cut-outs to evade the sanctions. They're going to do all kinds of things. This is what I would say to American companies and any foreign company that wants to do business in the United States, and I'd say it particularly to their investors and to their independent directors on their boards of directors, if you see you company engaged in a transaction that has the word Iran anywhere associated to it, it ought to be like a fire bell in the night. Not only will we have the incredibly important civil enforcement from the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, the Justice Department criminal investigators are going to be all over this. They've already got a number of important cases against Iran sanctions violators. I think they're going to put – make this a big priority. There's a lot of risk for any company that comes anywhere close to Iran. BARTIROMO: So you're willing to go as far as sanctioning European companies, European investors if they're doing business with Iran. BOLTON: If they violate our sanctions, but I tell you even though we've heard a lot about how the European government still wish we were in the Iran deal – BARTIROMO: Yes. BOLTON: – European businesses have spoken with their feet. They're out of Iran. That's one of the reasons why the Iranian economy is tanking right now, and we're going to ramp this up. This is going to be a big squeeze. That's what President Trump means when he says maximum pressure. BARTIROMO: Should we expect retaliation from Iran? BOTLON: Well, I think they're going to have to make some very hard decisions. You know, if they change their behavior, the president said he's happy to engage them on the whole range of their behavior – support for terrorism, ballistic missiles, conventional military activity in Yemen and Iraq and Syria. We're prepared to do that. They need to change their behavior or they will face the economic consequences. BARTIROMO: Let me turn to the caravans headed toward the U.S. Mexico has started to receive people from the migrant caravan as U.S. troops are now there, set up barbed wire on the southern border. From a national security perspective, how should we view this caravan and the need to put barbed wire up already? BOLTON: Well look, this caravan that we're talking about and others that are being formed is a very politicized effort to make a point about the United States. You know, there are groups and Latin America groups around the world that talk about a borderless society, that people can come into any country they want any time they want. We should have a philosophical discussion about that. That's not the American view. I personally think there ought to be more immigration into the United States, but controlled and legal immigration that we get to decide. And control the southern borders, not just an immigration issue alone. It's also a national security question. Human trafficking, drug trafficking, the risk of weapons of mass destruction and terrorists coming across the border. I think this is something people are rightly concerned about, and I think President Trump's got the answer for them. BARTIROMO: Ambassador, I want to end where we began and that is on Iran. There was a report on Friday that China is looking to buy oil from the United States as opposed to Iran, and this is going to be the beginning of a new trade deal that the president's going to talk with President Xi about when he sees him at the G20. Truth? BOLTON: I think there's a lot of possibility. I think the American production of oil and gas and the potential for export is enormous. It's a strategic alternative for the Europeans from buying Russian oil and gas. Could be a strategic alternative in the far east as well. You already see Chinese banks that are stopping clearing Iranian financial transactions because they'd rather do business in the United States. The same is true for many other Chinese businesses. The reach of American economic power's enormous, and that's what the president's using here. So how significant would that be in the middle of this fight with China over the theft of intellectual property? And this sounds like this could be a really big deal. BOLTON: Look, the president probably is going to be able to see Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 meeting in Argentina at the end of this month. The president's used the trade weapon here in ways that have never been used before. I think he's caught the Chinese off balance. They say, &quot;woah, an American president who doesn't act like a well-bred doormat when we trample all over WTO rules.” So I think the president's really changed the dynamic with China. We'll see what happens here.

          Universal Declaration of Human Rights 70th anniversary on FDC from South Korea      Cache   Translate Page      
70 ans de la Déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme sur FDC de Corée du sud

Le 10 décembre 1948, les 58 états membres qui constituaient alors l'Assemblée générale des Nations Unies ont adopté la Déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme à Paris au Palais de Chaillot.
Ce document fondateur - traduit dans plus de 500 langues différentes - continue d'être aujourd'hui une source d'inspiration pour promouvoir l'exercice universel des droits de l'homme à travers le monde.
La Déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme a permis de fournir des normes pour divers accords et déclarations internationaux et est reflétée dans les constitutions et les lois de pays du monde entier, y compris la Corée du Sud ou la France.
Afin de célébrer le 70ème anniversaire de ce texte fondateur, la poste coréenne a mis en circulation, le 1er octobre 2018, un timbre spécial (330 won, tirage : 688000), conçu par Park, Eun-kyung, représentant différents visages du monde à l'intérieur d'une main (évoquant également la forme d'une flamme).
On December 10, 1948, the 58 member states that then constituted the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Paris at the Palais de Chaillot.
This founding document - translated into more than 500 different languages - continues to be a source of inspiration today to promote the universal exercise of human rights worldwide.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights has provided standards for various international agreements and declarations and is reflected in constitutions and laws of countries around the world, including South Korea or France.
In order to celebrate the 70th anniversary of this founding text, the Korean Post has put into circulation, on October 1, 2018, a special stamp (330 won, print run: 688,000), designed by Park, Eun-kyung, representing different faces of the world inside a hand (also evoking the shape of a flame).


Ce timbre, imprimé en feuille de 16 timbres, a été utilisé en 2 exemplaires sur le FDC ci-dessus avec TAD de Nambusan. Merci beaucoup Ji-Ho !
Ce timbre est particulier car il comporte à gauche l'emblème des Nations Unies imprimé avec une encre iridescente de type OVI (Optically variable ink) !
Le TAD montre Eleanor Roosevelt tenant le document original de cette Déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme, d'après une photographie prise le 1er novembre 1949 au cours de sa visite au Siège des Nations Unies. Mme Roosevelt a été la première présidente de la Commission des droits de l'homme et a travaillé jusqu'à sa mort à faire accepter et entériner les droits énoncés dans cette Déclaration.
Le 3 mai 2018, l'administration postale des Nations Unies (bureau de New-York) a émis un timbre courant inspiré de cette même photographie.
La France et le Vatican vont également émettre un timbre en décembre 2018 pour commémorer également le 70ème anniversaire de cette Déclaration. D'autres administrations postales vont en faire autant ?
That stamp, printed in sheet of 16 stamps, was used in two copies on the FDC above with cancellations from Nambusan. Thank you very much Ji-Ho!
That stamp is special because it includes on the left the emblem of the United Nations printed with an OVI (Optically variable ink) iridescent ink!
The postmark shows Eleanor Roosevelt holding the original document of this Universal Declaration of Human Rights, based on a photograph taken on November 1, 1949 during her visit to United Nations Headquarters. Ms. Roosevelt was the first chairperson of the Commission on Human Rights and worked until her death to have the rights contained in this Declaration accepted and ratified.
On May 3, 2018, the United Nations Postal Administration (New York Office) issued a definitive stamp inspired by this same photograph.
France and the Vatican City will also issue a stamp in December 2018 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of this Declaration. Other postal administrations will do the same?


          Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif’s Declaration on Trump Sanctions (MUST SEE!)      Cache   Translate Page      
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has lashed out at the United States for imposing “illegal and draconian” sanctions on Tehran, saying Washington would once again regret its “unwise measures.”
“The US administration appears to believe that imposing illegal, draconian sanctions on Iran will bring about such pain to our nation that it will force us to submit to its will no matter how absurd, unlawful or fundamentally flawed its demands are,” Zarif said in an online video message on Tuesday.
He added that fresh US sanctions against Iran were an “indiscriminate assault” and said the Islamic Republic has weathered “difficult times” in the face of 40 years of American hostility by relying solely on its own resources.
“Today, we and our partners across the globe will ensure that our people are least affected by this indiscriminate assault in the economic warfare that directly targets the Iranian people,” the top Iranian diplomat added.
The administration of US President Donald Trump announced on Monday the re-imposition of the “toughest” sanctions ever against Iran’s oil exports, shipping and banking. The bans had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
The re-imposition of the second set of sanctions came after Trump in May pulled the US out from the agreement reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries — the United States, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia.
After leaving the deal, the US administration vowed to bring Iranian oil sales to “zero.”
It has, however, agreed to grant waivers to Turkey and seven other countries — China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan — to continue importing Iranian oil without facing diplomatic consequences.
Elsewhere in his video message, Zarif pointed to gradual change of policies and attitude by previous US administrations towards the Iranian nation and said, “I am confident that Mr. Trump’s administration will also reach to a conclusion that such policies will have no impact on determination of the great Iranian nation and the Americans will be obliged to change their policy.”
He emphasized that the world stands against the US administration and no country except for some few states in the Middle East and the Israeli regime would abide by Washington.
The foreign minister added that the hostile US measures were aimed at separating the “Iranian people from each other and from the establishment.”
He expressed confidence that “bad days” are awaiting the US administration which mostly tries to “cover atrocities of the Saudi regime and the Israeli regime instead of pursuing a policy in line with the US national interests.”
Zarif said Washington would be better off rethinking its “longstanding and unconditional support” for Saudi Arabia and Israel, which has “blinded the US to their appalling atrocities.”
He added that instead of relying on its “discredited addiction to unilateralism and sanctions…, the US is better off addressing the catastrophes and crises it has engineered in our region.”
In an exclusive interview over the weekend with USA TODAY, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Tehran would be open to talks with the United States about a new nuclear agreement if Washington changes its “approach” to discussing the 2015 nuclear deal.
He added that Iran would weigh fresh diplomacy if there were “foundations for a fruitful dialogue” on the Iran nuclear reduction deal, stressing, “Mutual trust is not a requirement to start negotiations – mutual respect is a requirement.”
In a letter to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Monday, Iran’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo said the United Nations must hold the United States to account for its “illegal” move to reinstate sanctions on Tehran.
“The United Nations and its member states, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the international law, should resist against these wrongful acts and hold the United States accountable for such acts,” Khoshroo said in his letter.

Agra Nov 7 (IANS) Mesmerised by the exquisite beauty of the monument of love, the Taj Mahal, South Korean First Lady Kim Jung Sook said she would return with her husband.

Instead of the scheduled 45 minutes, she spent 90 minutes asking questions about architecture, intricate inlay work and historical perspectives. She spent 20 minutes inside the mausoleum.

She thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for the visit.

According to her guide Nitin Chwla, she said she was much impressed with the cultural programmes at Ayodhya and the grand arti at the Saryu river. Cultural exchanges will bring the two countries closer, she added.

UP ministers Rita Bahuguna Joshi and Srikant Sharma welcomed her at the Kheria airport and accompanied her during her visit to the Taj Mahal.

          Miyazaki set to host 2018 World Cup season closer this weekend      Cache   Translate Page      
The 2018 ITU World Cup season reaches its climax this weekend, and the location on Japan’s southernmost tip in the sport-loving city of Miyazaki is the perfect home for another dose of world-class, standard-distance triathlon featuring some of the sport’s top athletes and two packed fields looking to round off the year on a high. MEN’S PREVIEW Mexico’s Rodrigo Gonzalez goes into the race wearing the number one at the end of another packed year that began with a brilliant 5th place at WTS Bermuda and saw victory in the Huatulco World Cup in June. Gonzalez’ compatriot Crisanto Grajales hasn’t had the best season since also scoring a top-10 finish in Bermuda, and he will want to better his recent 6th-placed effort in Salinas last month. Two equally well-travelled athletes in 2018 are sure to be right on their tails, however, as Russia’s Polyanskiy brothers return to the triathlon front line, Dmitry chasing his third World Cup triumph of the season, younger sibling Igor looking to record his first World Cup podium in two years. Another strong Italian World Cup squad takes to the line including Delian Stateff, Alessandro Fabian and Davide Uccellari, Stateff triumphant in Cagliari at the start of the summer finishing just ahead of Uccellari, while Fabian has enjoyed some solid results in both WTS and World Cup racing across 2018. Switzerland’s Max Studer arrives fresh from his first-ever World Cup win in Tongyeong two weeks ago eager to build on that superb achievement, while Spain’s Vicente Hernandez was second here 12 months ago and will no doubt be looking forward to returning to a Miyazaki course he has fond memories of. Australia’s Marcel Walkington finished second in Astana earlier in the year and will be chasing another place upon the podium, while teammate Ryan Bailie has been a regular in the top 10 in this season’s WTS racing and will see Miyazaki as a good chance to secure some end-of-year silverware. Frenchman Raphael Aurelian is back after a quiet few months out and will be looking to lay down the marker from the start of the swim as he has so often in the p
