Civil disobedience: Pat Maginnis may be the most important pro-choice activist you’ve never heard of. In the ’60s, she distributed information about abortion—and talked openly about her own—on the streets of San Francisco, flouting both California law and the more moderate efforts of other abortion reformers. Read Lili Loofbourow’s cover story on the “unlikely avatar of female rage.”

Let them in: About 500 Yemeni refugees have made their way into South Korea, and just this has been enough to catalyze wide-scale protest from the citizenry and exclusion by the government. Why would South Korea, a country that is itself historically familiar with the pain and adjustment of mass displacement, react so harshly? Stephen K. Hirst analyzes.

Change is coming: Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner has already made a name for himself as a determined criminal justice reformer, taking bolder steps than most prosecutors around the country. Maura Quint examines his latest move: reducing the overcharging of murder cases.

The Net: It only took multiple decades, but Hollywood has finally captured the internet’s mise-en-scène, according to Inkoo Kang. She looks through the lens of four 2018 films in order to understand how movies have “successfully dramatized and illuminated how the web has transformed our relationships to ourselves and each other.”

          South Korea Shuts the Gates      Cache   Translate Page      

In late 2016, South Koreans took to the streets for months of massive protests against government corruption that became known as the “Candlelight Revolution.” At one point, crowds in Seoul were estimated at over 1 million. The overwhelmingly peaceful protests deposed President Park Geun-hye and landed her behind bars. The protesters achieved tangible results, garnering international praise for their organized, nonviolent political activism.

Now, hundreds of thousands of Koreans are back in the streets, and though they haven’t swelled to quite the same size as the anti-Park demonstrations, they are once again too large to ignore. These protests, which began in June, are against the presence of about 500 Yemeni refugees on the island of Jeju (the nation’s southernmost territory and a tourism hot spot billed as “Korea’s Hawaii”). On an island with 660,000 residents, and in a nation of over 50 million, it’s a negligible amount of people—especially considering that South Korea has the 11th-largest economy in the world. But 500 is considered far too many in a country that accepts fewer refugees than almost any comparable nation. (Only about 4 percent of applicants are accepted.)

More than 3 million Yemenis have been displaced by the brutal war between a U.S.-backed Saudi Arabia–led coalition and the Houthi rebels, and tens of millions more are at risk of cholera and malnutrition. The U.N. has dubbed it the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world. But many Koreans are convinced that the Yemenis are somehow “fake” refugees because they have cellphones and clean clothes.

For a country intimately familiar with wartime refugees resulting from its own bloody conflict, the hostile attitudes can be difficult for foreigners to grasp. Since 1953, up to 300,000 North Koreans have fled the country, and over 30,000 defectors currently live in South Korea.

The Yemenis began trickling in from nearby majority-Muslim country Malaysia (also featuring visa-free access, leading many Yemenis to seek refuge there initially) in December 2017, which is when budget carrier AirAsia began direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Jeju. Previously, the resort island waived visa requirements for many foreign travelers to promote tourism (which has resulted in legions of Chinese travelers drawn by its famous beaches; this is yet another sore spot for locals). The government has since slammed that window shut, removing Yemen from the list of accepted countries for visa-free entry in June. The move elicited international criticism and appeared to be a concession to the protesters.

An anti-asylum online petition broke records last summer, drawing over 700,000 signatures and forcing President Moon Jae-in (himself a child of North Korean wartime refugees) to vow tighter screening and enhanced border control. The government has so far refused to grant the Yemenis official refugee status, instead giving them one-year residence permits and initially containing them to Jeju—where they have received a frigid reception for a subtropical volcanic island.

“I suppose I have a negative viewpoint because Muslims have had a lot of criminals and terrorists in other places” says Park Jong-hee, a 21-year-old college student. “I’m afraid of sexual violence against women.”

Song Jae-hyun, a 38-year-old entertainer, is somewhere in the middle. “Korea does need more policies to promote acceptance of different cultures. Yet there are also many foreign criminals in Jeju, and the people there are concerned about damage to their way of life.”

Widespread youth unemployment and economic disenfranchisement play a role in these sentiments, as does the monocultural country’s deeply ingrained xenophobia and racism. Like its neighbor Japan, South Korea is a country where the foreign population is below 5 percent. Some Jeju residents are so afraid of the asylum-seekers that they no longer allow their children to play outside. There is a widespread perception that the Yemeni refugees are potential job stealers, rapists, or terrorists—or simply that they won’t assimilate.

“The Yemeni refugees do not accept different cultures. My friends in Jeju have told me about this,” Park Jong-hee adds.

The debate over the refugees comes at the same time as a controversy involving K-pop’s biggest act, the boy band BTS. Last month they were featured on Time magazine’s cover, after previously being named one of the 25 most influential people on the internet. In September, the group was invited to speak at the U.N. General Assembly, following in the footsteps of entertainer-activists like Emma Watson. But the group has also come under fire for several incidents, including one where a member was photographed smiling and wearing a Nazi-era SS Death’s Head hat, and another where they posed for a crass photo shoot at a Holocaust memorial. More recently, another member wore a T-shirt depicting two atom-bomb mushroom clouds and a slogan appearing to celebrate the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, leading to more friction between the always-tense relations between Japan and Korea.

Lee Taek-Gwang Lee, a cultural critic and professor at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, told the Guardian these scandals are symptomatic of the nation’s struggle to reconcile nationalist sentiments with its growing global cultural presence: “BTS insist they are a global brand, but their identity is rooted in Korean nationalism, as it is with many young South Koreans,” he said.

Bigotry and xenophobia can’t shoulder all of the blame—economic conditions and insecurity about the future are also driving these protests. Youth unemployment nationwide is close to 10 percent, and that likely contributed to an all-time low of marriages in 2017. Like their American counterparts, young Koreans are putting off marriage until they feel more economically stable. A popular internet meme among young Koreans is “Hell Joseon,” (meaning “Hell Korea”) which can refer to economic inequality, youth unemployment, the notoriously brutal Korean work culture that is literally killing people, and a host of other social issues. Predictably, President Moon’s approval rating has been falling as the unemployment rate has risen.

Of course, the angriest voices are the loudest, but there’s certainly no shortage of Koreans with more sympathetic views. Lee Jin, a 36-year-old academic director at a private academy (or hagwon) views the refugees through a historical lens. “During and after the Korean War, we got a lot of international help from other countries. It’s important to do something in return, and help these refugees,” she says.

“Racism does contribute, but this young generation doesn’t have a clue about the past, and the favors our country was given—favors that we need to return to others. A lot of people simply don’t want to share even any little piece of the pie.”

Some Jeju residents have been welcoming, opening their homes to these asylum-seekers. Local civic groups, religious organizations, and expat teachers have teamed up to create the Jeju People’s Coalition for Refugee Rights, working to provide food, housing, and Korean language classes for the Yemenis.

Esmail al-Qublani, a 31-year-old Yemeni refugee currently still in Jeju, says that “overall, it was a great welcome. Because this is a tourist island, we actually haven’t encountered much xenophobia.” The hardest part for al-Qublani, a journalist in his home country, has been employment. “Finding work on Jeju island has been very difficult, but now there are more opportunities since a lot of us have traveled to the mainland.” So why are they being labeled “fake” by some Koreans?

“You’d have to ask them,” he says, his voice heavy with exhaustion. “We are only humans. We are refugees from a war. If they can get to know us, they will come to understand our reality by getting to know us one by one—if they want. We’re easy to make friends with.”

Lee Yu-lim, an unemployed 24-year-old woman, noted that “they came to Korea because their life was so hard. I feel empathy for them. And not all Islamic people are terrorists.” As far as the economic effects, Lee sees it as a positive: “They can start businesses, create more jobs, and help to grow the economy.” Indeed, a Yemeni restaurant opened in November: Wardah (Arabic for flower) already seems pretty popular with the locals.

But the hostility remains. Lee Hyang, the leader of an anti-refugee activist group in Jeju, told a Bloomberg reporter the refugees are “not only a threat to our people, but they’re also a threat to our future generation, because of our youth unemployment issue … they’re not even real refugees. If they were women or babies, I would believe them, but they’re able-bodied men. They’re fake, like fake news.”

The bottom line is that even after months, South Korea has refused to grant even a single Yemeni refugee status—although in October, 339 were granted the humanitarian visa. This means they can finally leave the island and travel within the mainland peninsula, but their ability to seek employment is curtailed, and they won’t receive rights that official refugee status would grant (among them health care, labor insurance, and the opportunity to bring their families into the country).

Though it’s one of the world’s richest countries, and one that was founded by a devastating war that sparked its own refugee crisis, many Koreans still aren’t ready to open their country’s door to others.

JaeCheol Park, who goes by the artist name PaperBlue, creates intricate drawings in the style of architectural drafts. But rather than imagining a buildable building, Park employs the classic illustrative aesthetic to form fantastical urban environments where structures appear and disappear, bleeding into one another in a haze of geometric patterns. His loose linework and intensive layering enliven the historical architectural styles he highlights in his drawings. The artist, who is based in Seongnam, South Korea, has a broad audience for his digital and concept art along with his more traditional drafting-inspired work. More

          South Korea Is Trialing Blockchain Voting — Here’s What That Means      Cache   Translate Page      
South Korea Blockchain Voting

South Korea will test out a new blockchain voting system this month, sources close to the developments have confirmed to Bitcoin Magazine. Developed by the country’s National Election Commission (NEC) and its Ministry of Science and ICT, the distributed ledger system is based on IBM’s Hyperledger Fabric and will be used to authenticate voters and save voting results in real time.

South Korean officials believe a blockchain voting system will increase both security and transparency, thereby improving people’s trust in digital voting. The NEC initially ran an online voting system dubbed “K-voting” back in 2013, but, despite 5.64 million users, trust remained low due to fraud and hacking concerns.

The system will be trialed in the private sector by Handysoft Consortium, which provides collaboration systems for smart work environments. The NEC says the trial is a pilot test designed to determine the viability of blockchain technology, wherein a small sample of users will use the pilot to answer a questionnaire.

With the pilot, the voting system will be used to gather responses from surveys issued by the Korea Internet and Security Agency — the region’s official internet content watchdog — on user experience, including satisfaction among trial participants. Their personal information is then collected from the user group administrator and uploaded directly to the blockchain system, where it is stored for the next seven days before being deleted.

The NEC says the plan is to eventually introduce the blockchain online voting system in democratic elections through a step-by-step pilot operation that will check the safety and stability of the system. The introduction of the voting platform into public official elections like National Assembly elections, local elections or presidential elections will be a policy decision made via the nation’s legislative branch.

Should legislation move forward, users will be able to cast their votes in the future using either their personal computers or mobile phones instead of in-person or by mail. Data recorded during the elections will be saved to the distributed network, so voters can see the progress of the elections as more votes are cast.

The NEC is confident the system will eliminate the possibilities of hacking and voter fraud. In addition, the organization says it will also add elements like big data, internet of things (IoT) technology and artificial intelligence (AI), granted the system proves popular enough.

South Korea is not the first nation to experiment with blockchain voting. Japan’s city of Tsukuba became the first area to experiment with the technology for voting purposes back in September of 2018. Voters’ identities were verified utilizing the Japanese equivalent of social security cards. From there, accounts were created for citizens wishing to vote on what the Japan Times called “social contribution projects.”

Unfortunately, the system was not without its problems. Many voters reported forgetting their login passwords and being unable to cast their votes within the appropriate timeframes. Furthermore, there was little clarity offered once a vote was cast on whether it had been counted.

West Virginia also experimented with blockchain voting during the 2018 midterm elections. Designed by mobile voting platform Voatz, the system was designed for American troops serving overseas who wished to cast their votes in the November federal elections. Voatz used facial-recognition software to match voters’ faces to their government-issued ID cards. From there, troop members could ultimately cast their ballots, which were then anonymized and recorded via the blockchain.

What You Need To Know About Korean Men’s Fashion

These days, Korean men are no longer known only as the ‘feminine’ singers and dancers of a boy group. Nor do they only exist as the emotionally twisted yet charming lead of a Korean drama, the one who will sweep the heroine off their feet. Instead, those who have visited South Korea, especially the capital of Seoul, are now gushing over the everyday guys seen on the streets. What might be about them that’s capturing the attention of people watchers everywhere? The simple answer is: the Korean men’s fashion.

That is, a typical Korean man dresses incredibly well! Though fashion is usually known as an interest for women, in Korea, it is definitely common for both genders to pay attention to their outfits. And not just when fashion week enters town! That makes for some great attire for people watchers to notice and even take inspiration from. It also makes shopping in Seoul more fun for men since there will be stylish options available for them as well. But what exactly does the Korean men’s fashion scene look like? What are the trendy style genres to go for in Seoul?

Skinny Bottoms Are IN

Whether we’re talking about jeans or other types of pants, Jonas Brothers aren’t the only ones with a liking to thigh hugging bottoms. You may have seen a lot of Korean boy groups on TV dressed in pants so skinny you wonder how they breathe in them – but your everyday Korean man will not be shy to wear such pants either! And not just in black, either; it’s totally fine to add some color to the outfit!

 

Did Someone Say Ripped Jeans?

Yes, indeed, Korean men love jeans with rips here and there every bit as much as Korean women do. Just throw on a pair of ripped jeans with a basic t-shirt, form hugging long sleeved tee, or a sweater, and you’ve got yourself the perfect effortless and yet stylish outfit!

 

The Shirt Under a Knit Look Isn’t Just for Professors

When you think of wearing a knit or a basic sweater with a shirt underneath, a middle aged college professor might be the first thing to pop into your mind. But actually it’s a very popular look among Korean men in their 20s and 30s, especially for a date night. It’s casual enough not to look silly, but put together enough to charm the ladies.

 

Or Just Go with the Shirt

Another typical date look for a Korean man is to wear a shirt, any kind of a shirt, and pair it up with jeans or slacks. Again, a relatively low effort look to go for, but one that is incredibly easy to look good in. Men who care for their appearance might dress up in a variation of this just for a night out with their boys as well, especially if the destination is Gangnam.

 

Loafers and Boots

Though many Korean men love the comfort of a classic pair of sneakers, or the ease of canvas shoes, sometimes they’re not the most stylish choice for the outfit. Sometimes a man just needs that good pair of black loafers and boots to go with their look, especially the combination of boots with skinny jeans. And Korean men also do not shy away from their shoes being equipped with a bit of heel. Why not look a little taller while you’re at it?

 

The Coat Matters As Well

Leather jackets, denim jackets, and colorful blazers exist in every Korean man’s closet for the fall and spring seasons. As for winter? A knee-length woolen winter coat is where it’s at! Another prevalent winter trend among Korean men, albeit not as stylish one, is to wear the puffiest North Face jumper one could possibly get their hands on. Well, at least you’ll stay warm!

 

Better Yet – Just Suit it Up!

If you happen to have an office job in Korea, chances are you will have to wear a suit on a daily basis. It’s not usually the preferred outfit choice for a Korean man, but it’s really tough not to look good while wearing one. So if you are one of those in this situation, why not just embrace it? Sure, it’s not as comfortable as a hoodie and sweatpants, but everyone around you is guaranteed to swoon!

 

Casual Fashion

There’s casual, and then there’s casual fashion. In this case, we’re not talking about you throwing on the first items you could find on the clothes rack. We’re talking about an easy-to-wear, relaxed fit, as casual as it can get look that’s actually carefully calculated and put together. To achieve this look, you’ll wear loose pants, and anything from loose jeans to sweatpants goes. The top will also be loose, and can be of any style and color you choose. Though, be sure to have at least one item be of a subtle and earthy color.

 

Attractive Man

Now that we’ve got the Korean men’s fashion styles covered, we can move onto the next burning question: Where to shop for the most authentic look?

 

87MM

This is a popular fashion brand directed towards men, founded by three big male model names in the Korean fashion industry. With this brand, you can hit the nail on the head with the casual fashion look.

 

HOMFEM

With this brand, you can find clothes that ooze comfort and trendy street style. The clothes are best described as modern and minimalistic. Combining them with other brands will bring about any trend categorized above.

 

PLAC

From Plac, you can also discover all sorts of styles and colors. But first and foremost, this is the place to go for your new pair of jeans.

 

STREET SHOPS

Though there may not be as many street shops out there covering the fashion needs of men as there are for women, it’s the best way to go for affordable fashion. Especially the shopping in Hongdae, Edae, and Myeongdong are great for finding smaller local brands. The clothes may not be as edgy as higher end fashion brands, but they’re definitely not lacking in style.

 

So are you ready to take the lessons of Korean men’s fashion to heart? Which Korean celebrity do you think is the most fashionable? Let us know in the comments below!

A bunch of stories got the whole world talking this year - and for very good reasons.#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

A bunch of stories got the whole world talking this year - and for very good reasons. Sadly though, many stories were difficult to hear, and some even upsetting to watch... thankfully we saw good people helping to change those stories for the better.

In the tricky world of politics in 2018, a lot of eyes were on America. Thousands of teenagers demanded to be heard on the issue of gun violence.

US President Donald Trump entered his second year in office and he went for a stroll with North Korea's leader, and North Korea's leader walked over to meet South Korea's leader. All aiming to turn old enemies into new friends.

In many places in the world, disaster struck. There were deadly earthquakes and tsunamis, floods, hurricanes and volcanic eruptions. Countries battled some of the worst forest fires they'd ever seen, and others are still struggling with drought.

But it wasn't just natural disasters that had the world worried. The war in Syria continued and people kept fleeing the country causing the biggest refugee crisis in decades. In another Middle Eastern country, Yemen, a different war escalated. Leaving around 11 million kids facing famine. In Central America, thousands of people left their homes to walk towards the US and Mexico border in search of a new life. But wherever there was disaster or war or poverty, there were always people working to make things better as well.

There was the incredible rescue of a boys' soccer team who were stuck in a flooded cave in Thailand. Many nations also came together to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War and to celebrate the biggest sporting event in the world. But some stories stretched beyond our world. We sent a probe on a mission to get closer to the sun than any spacecraft before it, and another touched down on Mars to uncover more of the red planet's secrets.

Back on Earth, we said goodbye to a genius who spent his life studying the universe. A singer whose voice helped change lives through music and activism and a man who created superheroes. A super blue blood moon made us look up to the sky, a search engine's 20th birthday that made us look down at our screens, and a whole lot of other wild, weird, wonderful things made us take a closer look at the world around us.

          G20: You can smell tear gas in the streets as the oil industry squabbles      Cache   Translate Page      
What the G20 and OPEC meetings mean for the political relations, economies, and people of the world.

Last week, two important meetings took place—one, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, of the Group of 20 (G20) nations, and two, in Vienna, Austria, of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other oil producers. The two meetings did not produce any resolution to the major economic challenges in the world. But they did soothe the nerves of financial markets. At the G20, the United States and China dialed down the temperature over trade but did not settle the long-term grievances each side has of the other. At the OPEC+ meeting, Russia and Saudi Arabia agreed to cut production and raise the price of oil despite pressure from the United States and others to keep oil prices low.

At neither meeting did the major powers find solutions to their problems. They are all caught in mazes from which there are no easy exits. But what calmed the world of finance was that the geopolitical tension between the major powers seemed to have lessened. What impact this reduced tension has for the world’s people, however, is not clear.

Trade

The “trade war” engineered by U.S. President Donald Trump against China began with tariffs and ended with a damp squib. At the G20, Trump told China’s Xi Jinping that the U.S. tariffs that would have gone up to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports will no longer be applied. China, for its part, said that it would import more goods from the United States. No specifics were announced, which is why the tensions over even this agreement spilled over onto Twitter (courtesy of Trump’s hyperbole) and into more sober statements from the Chinese government.

The more fundamental questions of intellectual property and currency valuation remain unsolved. The United States accuses China of theft of the intellectual property of U.S. firms, but the Chinese counter—as they have in the arbitration panels of the World Trade Organization—that they merely draw from technology transferred as a result of commercial agreements freely made by firms eager to use Chinese labor. It will be impossible to resolve these two problems, since neither side sees the issues in the same way. Their worldviews regarding intellectual property and currency valuation are utterly alien to each other. If the United States believes that China is unfairly valuing its currency, the Chinese point to the unfair advantage that the dollar has over every currency in the world since it is used as one of the major global currencies for facilitation of trade and for the storage of wealth.

Oil

Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman offered each other a friendly hand slap at the G20. Everyone seemed happy to see Mohammed bin Salman, despite the clear evidence of his role in the murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

But the real agreements between Russia and Saudi Arabia were not directly made in Buenos Aires. They were made more quietly in Vienna at the OPEC+ meeting. At Buenos Aires, Putin said, “yes, we have an agreement to prolong our accords.” He was referring to the deal between Russia and Saudi Arabia since 2016 to manage oil prices to their mutual benefit. The deal notwithstanding, Saudi Arabia has continued to pump itself into trouble—flooding the market with oil, driving prices down and depleting its own treasury as a result. Now Russia is eager to see oil production cuts and oil prices rise. Trapped by sanctions and by low oil prices, Russia has plunged into internal economic difficulties. The real issue was how much each country inside and outside OPEC should pump. That is why Putin said, “there is no final deal on volumes.” In fact, even after the deal has begun to emerge, there is no final deal. Saudi Arabia has not been a good partner here. It has pumped outside the numbers over the course of the past few years, largely under pressure from the United States.

There are two reasons why the United States wants low oil prices, despite the fact that the U.S. is now one of the world’s largest oil producers. First, low oil prices mean an immediate subsidy for the U.S. consumer and for U.S. manufacturing firms. There is no economic incentive to move to renewable energy when oil prices are low. Second, low oil prices hit adversaries of the U.S.-led world order that—as it happens—are major oil producers. The list includes Iran and Venezuela, two countries that have been sent into internal turmoil as oil prices have plummeted. But the United States has sufficient tools to hurt these countries without forcing oil prices down. For instance, even if oil prices rise, U.S. sanctions can be harsh enough to cut Iranian and Venezuelan oil out of the market. The lack of Iranian and Venezuelan oil operates as an effective cut in oil production, which will itself raise oil prices.

Saudi Arabia has already begun to pressure Libya and Nigeria to reduce oil exports, although both these African countries are reliant upon oil revenues. Saudi Arabia has succeeded in pushing Qatar out of OPEC on political grounds, but since Qatar only produces 2 percent of OPEC’s crude oil the departure, Qatexit is not meaningful. Inside the world of oil, there are those who are always pushed aside so that others can benefit.

Oil Buyers’ Club

In 2005, Indian Petroleum Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar assembled his counterparts from across Asia to start a discussion on a buyers’ club. The precise issue on the table was the “Asian Premium” charged by Saudi Arabia and other oil producers to Asian countries. The “Asian Premium” is substantial—close to $10 billion per year for the Asian consumers of Gulf oil. It is what bothered Aiyar and the other oil ministers. But they did not come to any agreement.

Asia is the largest importer of oil in the world. India and China, with the United States, are the three largest importers of oil. Right behind them are Japan and South Korea. If you add the oil imports by China, India, Japan and South Korea, then these four Asian countries import a full third of world oil imports. They are both reliant upon the oil exporters, but they also have power as a bloc of consumers.

In 2012, China’s premier Wen Jiabao said that there needed to be a counter-cartel to OPEC that should include Europe and the United States. Interest in his proposal was minimal. Oil had reached $100 per barrel. It stifled economic growth and did not move any of these industrial giants toward non-carbon renewable fuel.

The issue of a buyers’ cartel came back on the table in April this year at the International Energy Forum. The chairman of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Sanjiv Singh and the chairman of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) Wang Yilin then met in Beijing to go deeper into the possibility. By June, China and India—which import 17 percent of the world’s oil—had begun to openly talk about a buyers’ cartel to help create “stable and moderate” oil prices, as India’s current Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan put it.

China and India have been upset by the U.S. sanctions on Iran. They have felt that these produce an adverse impact on Asian economies. They are joined by Japan and the European Union, who are also not pleased with these sanctions. It is now being said that if China and India establish a buyers’ club, Japan and Europe will join in.

Smell of Tear Gas

From the air-conditioned rooms of the oligarchy, we go to the tear gas of the streets.

Protests in Paris, France, have been the most violent in decades. The yellow vests (gilets jaunes) appeared as if out of nowhere to demonstrate against the French government’s hike in fuel prices. They make the case that the violence of the economy has destroyed their ability to function. Any violence on the streets is a reflection of the violence that structures their lives. The streets of Paris smelled of tear gas.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina, labor unions and political groups of one kind or another planned massive protests against the G20. They wanted to scream at their leaders, who have been deaf to their pleas. But the Argentinian government held the G20 meeting at the Costa Salguero convention center, on the magnificent Rio de La Plata. Police cordoned off the area, while the coast guard boats sailed up and down the river. No one could get near the site. None of the leaders were interrupted by the chants.

There were no protests in Vienna. The OPEC building was nonetheless surrounded by the elite WEGA units. No one knew that the meeting was being held. There is so little democracy in the institutions that structure our lives.

          Samsung’s target demographic for its foldable phone will be middle-aged professionals      Cache   Translate Page      
There's so much about Samsung's soon-to-be-released foldable phone that's just so, well, far-out and wildly different from everything else on the market today. There's everything from the totally unique form factor to the massive price tag that could be as high as $2,500, according to some rumors. The latest tidbit to come out of the rumor mill surrounding the handset, however, moves away from the elite and definitely more towards the mainstream side of things. Specifically, it seems that Samsung won't be targeting the younger, influencer set with this device. Instead, the company is going to focus on middle-aged, working professionals: People who actually have the money to plunk down four figures on a handset like this. That's according to South Korean news outlet The Bell, which puts Samsung's plans for the phone in a new light and offers fresh details about what's coming. For starters, it appears the South Korea-based tech giant sees this as mostly a limited-edition product that will be more about burnishing the company's sheen as an innovator, rather than positioning this device as The Next Big Thing in smartphones. Samsung is also planning a first production run of 1 million units, and The Bell suggests it will target a mainstream crowd -- professionals in their 40s. These are people with money to spend on a premium product, which may also be an indication this device is going to be great for productivity. Some of this seems to contrast ever so slightly with earlier reports that indicated Samsung sees this device as a major new chapter for its smartphone division. Along those lines, there have been a smattering of reports suggesting the company will release this device globally and will push out a new version of the foldable phone every year a la its flagship handsets. (Samsung is also apparently so bullish on unusual form factors that the company has even patented a design for a stretchable battery.) We'll learn more about the foldable phone soon enough. In fact, a handful of companies are planning to release foldable handsets next year, including LG and Huawei. For its part, Samsung is expected to show its device off in just a couple of months at Mobile World Congress ahead of a March release when, if you're a mid-career professional with money to burn who's always wanted a bendy phone, your chance will finally arrive.
          The hot new UI from Samsung’s foldable phone is now available on the Galaxy Note 9      Cache   Translate Page      
Hardcore Samsung smartphone fans are probably aware of everything the South Korean Android vendor is rumored to be working on right now, and there are plenty of things to be excited about. The list includes the Galaxy S10 flagship and its brand new design, the first 5G phones expected to launch next year, but also the first foldable smartphone the company unveiled a few weeks ago. The latter might be too expensive for most people next year, starting at well over $1,500 according to rumors, but the phone will bring over an exciting Samsung innovation -- one that fans can actually try right now on the Galaxy Note 9. We're referring to the One UI that Samsung unveiled back at SDC18, the same event where the foldable phone was introduced, as well as several new Infinity displays. The new One UI is supposed to be a simplified and intuitive user interface that will power all Samsung phones running Android 9.0 Pie or later. In fact, that’s how you can try One UI right now -- by running the Android Pie beta for either the Galaxy S9 or the Note 9. According to SamMobile, the Note 9 Pie update is rolling out in several markets right now, including Germany, India, and the US. To get it, Note 9 owners will have to register for it through the Samsung Members app. Once that’s done, users will be able to install the beta complete with the new One UI on a Note 9. As for everyone else, the final Pie release for the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 should be available at some point in the coming months, with the S9 models expected to get it first. The following clip shows Samsung’s One UI demo from the Developer Conference 2018 event, via CNET’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbXJYAMiKac

          Comment on Comparing China and America, by Fred Reed      Cache   Translate Page      
But why would China be decades behind Japan and South Korea? Both of those countries suffered much more intense destruction by war, and South Korea was dirt poor just a few short decades back, just like China. The reason is they have better work-related ethics – not just “work ethics” as in hustle and bustle, but more honesty and focus on quality.
SK and Japan did well because they received hundreds of billions in aid and technology from the US post WWII and the Korean war. SK companies like Samsung, Hyundai were able to succeed because the SK economy was extremely protectionist against Japanese cars and electronics. Kudos to them of course that they did not just take the aid and squandered it through massive corruption like the African countries. They have a good work ethic, far higher IQ and social cohesiveness. China lacks social cohesiveness because it is so big. In a society of 1.3 billion, it's hard to get anyone to care about anyone else other than himself and his own family. China is still a total dog-eat-dog, every man for himself corrupt hellhole, the Wild East. Trillions of dollars flowed out of China in the last 2 decades as their corrupt government and business elites emigrated out of the country in droves with their stolen wealth(before they get thrown in jail), which led to the real estate boom in all western countries. It's no coincidence that our real estate market is now crashing. Trump thinks it's because Fed rates are too high and blamed it on Jeremy Powell, but the real reason is the Chinese have stopped buying because of Xi Jin Ping's latest capital control measures. The US never would've developed if our rich industrialists like Rockefeller, Carnegie, Vanderbilt, Ford et al. took all their money and ran to Europe instead of reinvesting in the US. If China does not control its capital outflow, it will take it a lot longer to get to SK/Japan status. Right now every Chinese still just wants to get rich and get the hell out, like the Indians. Countries like these could never really develop. Infrastructure alone does not make a good society. A good society is where people are honest, polite, civic minded, and actually care about their neighbors, communities and countrymen. China is a loooonngg way from that.

Well, of course, we can hope so – but the collapse of many schools and other public buildings, next to residential buildings that were left standing, strongly suggests corruption, not just “poverty” as the underlying problem.
I doubt China is much more corrupt than other countries with comparable per capita income.
But why would China be decades behind Japan and South Korea? Both of those countries suffered much more intense destruction by war, and South Korea was dirt poor just a few short decades back, just like China. The reason is they have better work-related ethics – not just “work ethics” as in hustle and bustle, but more honesty and focus on quality.
China has been behind Japan since the Meji Restoration in the 1870s. So it will take China the same amount of effort and time to catch up with Japan as with other Western countries. As for South Korea, it has the same population of Shanghai plus Shenzhen. It is relatively easy to build up such a small country. Shanghai and Shenzhen are as prosperous, innovative, and vibrant as any South Korean cities. While South Korea is ahead in semiconductor (for now) and conventional auto industries, China is ahead in super computer, quantum physics and its application, space (e.g. GPS) and missile (e.g. hypersonic glider) technologies, military aviation (e.g. UCAV, 5th gen. fighters and heavy transport, and soon strategic stealth bomber) and ship-building (e.g. nuclear submarine and aircraft carrier), high speed rail and electric vehicles, just naming a few.
But China also has leveraged the size of its market to entice foreign companies to build factories there, and to compel them to hand over their IP (and that is in addition to outright IP theft). And they STILL could not match the South Koreans for speed of development.
The difference is, foreign companies will never transfer, and China will never be able to obtain, the most critical technologies. This was not the case with South Korea and Taiwan. Both got the most critical technologies in the fabrication of semiconductors from the West and became power houses in this industry. Did you see a pattern here? Both are small U.S. protectorates that will never threaten the West.
Amazing (not). Take a moment to compare the scope of “innovation” coming out of China to that coming of Germany when it burst onto the scene in the late 19th and early 20th century, or out of America in its heyday and even today.
In the era of Germany, scientific and technological breakthroughs were relatively easier to achieve compared to today. So it may not be entirely fair to compare it to today's China. As for the U.S., China is catch up.
I wish the Chinese well, and I sincerely hope they will replace the hopelessly corrupt and thuggish U.S. as the leading world power rather sooner than later. I do respect their accomplishments, as far as they go, but they really don’t lead the world in any desirable quality – they are just big, that’s all.
Unlike maybe even 50 years ago, today's research projects often require enormous treasure and brain power, to be big is an absolute advantage.

          G20: You can smell tear gas in the streets as the oil industry squabbles      Cache   Translate Page      
What the G20 and OPEC meetings mean for the political relations, economies, and people of the world.

Last week, two important meetings took place—one, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, of the Group of 20 (G20) nations, and two, in Vienna, Austria, of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other oil producers. The two meetings did not produce any resolution to the major economic challenges in the world. But they did soothe the nerves of financial markets. At the G20, the United States and China dialed down the temperature over trade but did not settle the long-term grievances each side has of the other. At the OPEC+ meeting, Russia and Saudi Arabia agreed to cut production and raise the price of oil despite pressure from the United States and others to keep oil prices low.

At neither meeting did the major powers find solutions to their problems. They are all caught in mazes from which there are no easy exits. But what calmed the world of finance was that the geopolitical tension between the major powers seemed to have lessened. What impact this reduced tension has for the world’s people, however, is not clear.

Trade

The “trade war” engineered by U.S. President Donald Trump against China began with tariffs and ended with a damp squib. At the G20, Trump told China’s Xi Jinping that the U.S. tariffs that would have gone up to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports will no longer be applied. China, for its part, said that it would import more goods from the United States. No specifics were announced, which is why the tensions over even this agreement spilled over onto Twitter (courtesy of Trump’s hyperbole) and into more sober statements from the Chinese government.

The more fundamental questions of intellectual property and currency valuation remain unsolved. The United States accuses China of theft of the intellectual property of U.S. firms, but the Chinese counter—as they have in the arbitration panels of the World Trade Organization—that they merely draw from technology transferred as a result of commercial agreements freely made by firms eager to use Chinese labor. It will be impossible to resolve these two problems, since neither side sees the issues in the same way. Their worldviews regarding intellectual property and currency valuation are utterly alien to each other. If the United States believes that China is unfairly valuing its currency, the Chinese point to the unfair advantage that the dollar has over every currency in the world since it is used as one of the major global currencies for facilitation of trade and for the storage of wealth.

Oil

Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman offered each other a friendly hand slap at the G20. Everyone seemed happy to see Mohammed bin Salman, despite the clear evidence of his role in the murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

But the real agreements between Russia and Saudi Arabia were not directly made in Buenos Aires. They were made more quietly in Vienna at the OPEC+ meeting. At Buenos Aires, Putin said, “yes, we have an agreement to prolong our accords.” He was referring to the deal between Russia and Saudi Arabia since 2016 to manage oil prices to their mutual benefit. The deal notwithstanding, Saudi Arabia has continued to pump itself into trouble—flooding the market with oil, driving prices down and depleting its own treasury as a result. Now Russia is eager to see oil production cuts and oil prices rise. Trapped by sanctions and by low oil prices, Russia has plunged into internal economic difficulties. The real issue was how much each country inside and outside OPEC should pump. That is why Putin said, “there is no final deal on volumes.” In fact, even after the deal has begun to emerge, there is no final deal. Saudi Arabia has not been a good partner here. It has pumped outside the numbers over the course of the past few years, largely under pressure from the United States.

There are two reasons why the United States wants low oil prices, despite the fact that the U.S. is now one of the world’s largest oil producers. First, low oil prices mean an immediate subsidy for the U.S. consumer and for U.S. manufacturing firms. There is no economic incentive to move to renewable energy when oil prices are low. Second, low oil prices hit adversaries of the U.S.-led world order that—as it happens—are major oil producers. The list includes Iran and Venezuela, two countries that have been sent into internal turmoil as oil prices have plummeted. But the United States has sufficient tools to hurt these countries without forcing oil prices down. For instance, even if oil prices rise, U.S. sanctions can be harsh enough to cut Iranian and Venezuelan oil out of the market. The lack of Iranian and Venezuelan oil operates as an effective cut in oil production, which will itself raise oil prices.

Saudi Arabia has already begun to pressure Libya and Nigeria to reduce oil exports, although both these African countries are reliant upon oil revenues. Saudi Arabia has succeeded in pushing Qatar out of OPEC on political grounds, but since Qatar only produces 2 percent of OPEC’s crude oil the departure, Qatexit is not meaningful. Inside the world of oil, there are those who are always pushed aside so that others can benefit.

Oil Buyers’ Club

In 2005, Indian Petroleum Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar assembled his counterparts from across Asia to start a discussion on a buyers’ club. The precise issue on the table was the “Asian Premium” charged by Saudi Arabia and other oil producers to Asian countries. The “Asian Premium” is substantial—close to $10 billion per year for the Asian consumers of Gulf oil. It is what bothered Aiyar and the other oil ministers. But they did not come to any agreement.

Asia is the largest importer of oil in the world. India and China, with the United States, are the three largest importers of oil. Right behind them are Japan and South Korea. If you add the oil imports by China, India, Japan and South Korea, then these four Asian countries import a full third of world oil imports. They are both reliant upon the oil exporters, but they also have power as a bloc of consumers.

In 2012, China’s premier Wen Jiabao said that there needed to be a counter-cartel to OPEC that should include Europe and the United States. Interest in his proposal was minimal. Oil had reached $100 per barrel. It stifled economic growth and did not move any of these industrial giants toward non-carbon renewable fuel.

The issue of a buyers’ cartel came back on the table in April this year at the International Energy Forum. The chairman of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Sanjiv Singh and the chairman of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) Wang Yilin then met in Beijing to go deeper into the possibility. By June, China and India—which import 17 percent of the world’s oil—had begun to openly talk about a buyers’ cartel to help create “stable and moderate” oil prices, as India’s current Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan put it.

China and India have been upset by the U.S. sanctions on Iran. They have felt that these produce an adverse impact on Asian economies. They are joined by Japan and the European Union, who are also not pleased with these sanctions. It is now being said that if China and India establish a buyers’ club, Japan and Europe will join in.

Smell of Tear Gas

From the air-conditioned rooms of the oligarchy, we go to the tear gas of the streets.

Protests in Paris, France, have been the most violent in decades. The yellow vests (gilets jaunes) appeared as if out of nowhere to demonstrate against the French government’s hike in fuel prices. They make the case that the violence of the economy has destroyed their ability to function. Any violence on the streets is a reflection of the violence that structures their lives. The streets of Paris smelled of tear gas.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina, labor unions and political groups of one kind or another planned massive protests against the G20. They wanted to scream at their leaders, who have been deaf to their pleas. But the Argentinian government held the G20 meeting at the Costa Salguero convention center, on the magnificent Rio de La Plata. Police cordoned off the area, while the coast guard boats sailed up and down the river. No one could get near the site. None of the leaders were interrupted by the chants.

There were no protests in Vienna. The OPEC building was nonetheless surrounded by the elite WEGA units. No one knew that the meeting was being held. There is so little democracy in the institutions that structure our lives.

          G20: You can smell tear gas in the streets as the oil industry squabbles      Cache   Translate Page      
What the G20 and OPEC meetings mean for the political relations, economies, and people of the world.

Last week, two important meetings took place—one, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, of the Group of 20 (G20) nations, and two, in Vienna, Austria, of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other oil producers. The two meetings did not produce any resolution to the major economic challenges in the world. But they did soothe the nerves of financial markets. At the G20, the United States and China dialed down the temperature over trade but did not settle the long-term grievances each side has of the other. At the OPEC+ meeting, Russia and Saudi Arabia agreed to cut production and raise the price of oil despite pressure from the United States and others to keep oil prices low.

At neither meeting did the major powers find solutions to their problems. They are all caught in mazes from which there are no easy exits. But what calmed the world of finance was that the geopolitical tension between the major powers seemed to have lessened. What impact this reduced tension has for the world’s people, however, is not clear.

Trade

The “trade war” engineered by U.S. President Donald Trump against China began with tariffs and ended with a damp squib. At the G20, Trump told China’s Xi Jinping that the U.S. tariffs that would have gone up to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports will no longer be applied. China, for its part, said that it would import more goods from the United States. No specifics were announced, which is why the tensions over even this agreement spilled over onto Twitter (courtesy of Trump’s hyperbole) and into more sober statements from the Chinese government.

The more fundamental questions of intellectual property and currency valuation remain unsolved. The United States accuses China of theft of the intellectual property of U.S. firms, but the Chinese counter—as they have in the arbitration panels of the World Trade Organization—that they merely draw from technology transferred as a result of commercial agreements freely made by firms eager to use Chinese labor. It will be impossible to resolve these two problems, since neither side sees the issues in the same way. Their worldviews regarding intellectual property and currency valuation are utterly alien to each other. If the United States believes that China is unfairly valuing its currency, the Chinese point to the unfair advantage that the dollar has over every currency in the world since it is used as one of the major global currencies for facilitation of trade and for the storage of wealth.

Oil

Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman offered each other a friendly hand slap at the G20. Everyone seemed happy to see Mohammed bin Salman, despite the clear evidence of his role in the murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

But the real agreements between Russia and Saudi Arabia were not directly made in Buenos Aires. They were made more quietly in Vienna at the OPEC+ meeting. At Buenos Aires, Putin said, “yes, we have an agreement to prolong our accords.” He was referring to the deal between Russia and Saudi Arabia since 2016 to manage oil prices to their mutual benefit. The deal notwithstanding, Saudi Arabia has continued to pump itself into trouble—flooding the market with oil, driving prices down and depleting its own treasury as a result. Now Russia is eager to see oil production cuts and oil prices rise. Trapped by sanctions and by low oil prices, Russia has plunged into internal economic difficulties. The real issue was how much each country inside and outside OPEC should pump. That is why Putin said, “there is no final deal on volumes.” In fact, even after the deal has begun to emerge, there is no final deal. Saudi Arabia has not been a good partner here. It has pumped outside the numbers over the course of the past few years, largely under pressure from the United States.

There are two reasons why the United States wants low oil prices, despite the fact that the U.S. is now one of the world’s largest oil producers. First, low oil prices mean an immediate subsidy for the U.S. consumer and for U.S. manufacturing firms. There is no economic incentive to move to renewable energy when oil prices are low. Second, low oil prices hit adversaries of the U.S.-led world order that—as it happens—are major oil producers. The list includes Iran and Venezuela, two countries that have been sent into internal turmoil as oil prices have plummeted. But the United States has sufficient tools to hurt these countries without forcing oil prices down. For instance, even if oil prices rise, U.S. sanctions can be harsh enough to cut Iranian and Venezuelan oil out of the market. The lack of Iranian and Venezuelan oil operates as an effective cut in oil production, which will itself raise oil prices.

Saudi Arabia has already begun to pressure Libya and Nigeria to reduce oil exports, although both these African countries are reliant upon oil revenues. Saudi Arabia has succeeded in pushing Qatar out of OPEC on political grounds, but since Qatar only produces 2 percent of OPEC’s crude oil the departure, Qatexit is not meaningful. Inside the world of oil, there are those who are always pushed aside so that others can benefit.

Oil Buyers’ Club

In 2005, Indian Petroleum Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar assembled his counterparts from across Asia to start a discussion on a buyers’ club. The precise issue on the table was the “Asian Premium” charged by Saudi Arabia and other oil producers to Asian countries. The “Asian Premium” is substantial—close to $10 billion per year for the Asian consumers of Gulf oil. It is what bothered Aiyar and the other oil ministers. But they did not come to any agreement.

Asia is the largest importer of oil in the world. India and China, with the United States, are the three largest importers of oil. Right behind them are Japan and South Korea. If you add the oil imports by China, India, Japan and South Korea, then these four Asian countries import a full third of world oil imports. They are both reliant upon the oil exporters, but they also have power as a bloc of consumers.

In 2012, China’s premier Wen Jiabao said that there needed to be a counter-cartel to OPEC that should include Europe and the United States. Interest in his proposal was minimal. Oil had reached $100 per barrel. It stifled economic growth and did not move any of these industrial giants toward non-carbon renewable fuel.

The issue of a buyers’ cartel came back on the table in April this year at the International Energy Forum. The chairman of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Sanjiv Singh and the chairman of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) Wang Yilin then met in Beijing to go deeper into the possibility. By June, China and India—which import 17 percent of the world’s oil—had begun to openly talk about a buyers’ cartel to help create “stable and moderate” oil prices, as India’s current Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan put it.

China and India have been upset by the U.S. sanctions on Iran. They have felt that these produce an adverse impact on Asian economies. They are joined by Japan and the European Union, who are also not pleased with these sanctions. It is now being said that if China and India establish a buyers’ club, Japan and Europe will join in.

Smell of Tear Gas

From the air-conditioned rooms of the oligarchy, we go to the tear gas of the streets.

Protests in Paris, France, have been the most violent in decades. The yellow vests (gilets jaunes) appeared as if out of nowhere to demonstrate against the French government’s hike in fuel prices. They make the case that the violence of the economy has destroyed their ability to function. Any violence on the streets is a reflection of the violence that structures their lives. The streets of Paris smelled of tear gas.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina, labor unions and political groups of one kind or another planned massive protests against the G20. They wanted to scream at their leaders, who have been deaf to their pleas. But the Argentinian government held the G20 meeting at the Costa Salguero convention center, on the magnificent Rio de La Plata. Police cordoned off the area, while the coast guard boats sailed up and down the river. No one could get near the site. None of the leaders were interrupted by the chants.

There were no protests in Vienna. The OPEC building was nonetheless surrounded by the elite WEGA units. No one knew that the meeting was being held. There is so little democracy in the institutions that structure our lives.

          S Korea to lift certain restricted zones at DMZ      Cache   Translate Page      

[South Korea], Dec 5 (ANI): In an aim to reduce inconvenience of the residents staying near the inter-Korean border, the South Korean government on Wednesday gave its nod to lift the classification of certain restricted zones that host military facilities.

The ruling Democratic Party agreed to lift the designation of the military-controlled zones in 21 places, totalling an area of around 337 million square metres. This exercise is the largest since 1994 when South Korea had lifted classification of certain restricted zones, with a total area of 1.7 billion square metres, Yonhap News Agency reported.

The lifting of the zones near the inter-Korean border will not affect military operations, the South Korean government said. The zones are situated in border areas of Gangwon Province, in the country's northeastern part and Gyeonggi Province, situated near the capital Seoul.

The restricted zones were put in place by South Korea during confrontations and tensions with North Korea over the past few decades. In these areas, land development is limited and people residing at the border face restrictions over property rights.

The South Korean government also agreed to simplify the people's entry process into the civilian-access controlled zone located near the inter-Korean border. If the proposal goes ahead, it would help some 30,000 residents and tourists visiting the border village of Panmunjom every year in the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ), the de facto border between the two Koreas.

Last month, a South Korean train arrived at the Panmun station in North Korea's Kaesong Industrial Region for an 18-day joint railway inspection which aims at modernising railway lines and eventually connecting both the nations through railways.

Inter-Korean relations have dramatically improved this year following South Korean President Moon Jae-in's meetings with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the past few months.

The two Korean leaders have met thrice -- in April, May and September -- agreeing to cease hostilities against each other, strengthening inter-Korean cooperation and achieving complete denuclearisation in the Korean Peninsula.

As part of the efforts, South Korea has been keen to expand and carry out inter-Korean projects with North Korea, despite the international sanctions imposed on the latter over its nuclear weapons programme. (ANI)

          Experts See Risks in Trump's Plan to Meet with North Korea's Kim       Cache   Translate Page      
North Korea experts have cautioned against another summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, citing a lack of progress on denuclearization since the first summit in Singapore. After meeting with the leaders of South Korea and China during the G-20 summit, Trump expressed a willingness to hold a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  On his way home from the weekend gathering in Buenos Aires, Trump said a second summit with Kim will likely take place in January or February and three sites were discussed as potential meeting locations. ​"We're getting along very well," Trump said. "We have a good relationship with Kim." The White House released a statement during the G-20 summit saying "great progress has been made" on Trump's discussions on North Korea. "It was … agreed that great progress has been made with respect to North Korea that President Trump, together with [Chinese] President Xi [Jinping], will strive, along with Chairman Kim Jong Un, to see a nuclear free Korean Peninsula," said the White House.  However, former U.S. officials who have dealt with North Korea extensively and analysts on North Korea have questioned the timing of a second summit. They argue that working-level talks between Washington and Pyongyang should come before Trump meets with Kim, emphasizing working-level negotiations are where progress on denuclearization can be made. Robert Gallucci, chief U.S. negotiator during the 1994 North Korean nuclear crisis, said, "What I care about is that there would be real progress." He continued, "And that is going to take [place] in the working-group level discussions about what the North Koreans expect, and what we are prepared to give in order to make progress towards our goal." Christopher Hill, a chief negotiator with North Korea during the George W. Bush administration, doubts Trump's second summit with Kim will yield much in terms of results, similar to the lack of progress made on denuclearization after Trump's first summit with Kim. "I don't see what they are going to even discuss," Hill said. "But I think what [Trump's] just trying to tell the press and others is that we are continuing to make progress, although I think the rest of us do not really see what the progress is. So I wouldn't take too seriously what he says." Hill believes pre-summit agreements on denuclearization made in working-level talks will determine the success of the next Trump-Kim meeting. "The success of a summit is proportional to the amount of work that it's done before the summit," Hill said. "I think there's a lot of skepticism about the process right now." Trump's openness to another meeting with Kim comes amid growing skepticism about North Korea's commitment to denuclearization. North Korea called off planned talks with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the last minute in early November. The cancellation came after Pyongyang refused to engage with Stephen Biegun, the U.S. point man on North Korea. Some experts believe Pyongyang is only interested in direct talks with Trump. Bruce Klingner, former CIA division chief for the Korea and current senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, said Pyongyang sees Trump as "more likely to offer additional concessions, as he did in Singapore." "It would be a mistake to convene a second summit without real progress toward a comprehensive agreement on North Korean denuclearization," Klingner said. Robert Manning, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, also cautioned against holding another summit. "The first summit outcome was so ambiguous that it has not provided any impetus for detailed negotiations or a framework for talks to resolve the whole set of issues," Manning said. During a press briefing last week, Robert Palladino, deputy spokesperson for the State Department said, "Future dialogue will take place and it'll definitely be something that Special Representative Biegun will be leading." While the U.S. remains open to talks with North Korea, it is maintaining that sanctions will stay in place until the North takes steps toward denuclearization. In a statement released shortly after Trump's meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in during the G-20 summit, the White House said the two leaders "agreed on the importance of maintaining vigorous enforcement of existing sanctions" against North Korea. Moon said Tuesday he hopes Kim's visit to South Korea occurs this year, although a specific date is yet to be determined. "Although there is no timeframe set for that, still, it's very meaningful," said Moon from New Zealand about Kim's visit. Ahn So-young of VOA's Korean Service contributed to this report.

          PM Modi lauds ISRO for successful launch of GSAT-11      Cache   Translate Page      

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday lauded the scientists of Indian Space Reasearch Organization (ISRO) for successfully launching the heaviest and most-advanced high throughput communication satellite, GSAT-11.

In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister congratulated the scientists saying that the space program would transform the lives of crores of Indians by connecting remote areas. He further encouraged them to keep innovating and setting high standards of success.

"A major milestone for our space programme, which will transform the lives of crores of Indians by connecting remote areas! Congrats to @isro for the successful launch of GSAT-11, which is the heaviest, largest and most-advanced high throughput communication satellite of India," he wrote.

"India is proud of our scientists, who keep innovating and setting high standards of scale, achievements and succcess. Their remarkable work inspires every Indian. @isro," he said in another tweet.

ISRO successfully launched its heaviest and most-advanced high throughput communication satellite, GSAT-11, from the Spaceport in French Guiana in the wee hours of Wednesday.

The launch vehicle, Ariane 5 VA-246, lifted off from Kourou Launch Base at 2:07 AM (IST) carrying India's GSAT-11 and South Korea's GEO-KOMPSAT-2A satellites. Ariane 5 is one of three launch vehicles operated by Arianespace along with Soyuz and Vega.

After a 30-min flight, the GSAT-11 detached from the Ariane 5 upper stage in an elliptical Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit, achieving an orbit very close to the intended one.

The 5854-kg satellite will provide high data rate connectivity to users in the Indian mainland and islands through 32 user beams in the Ku-band and 8 hub beams in the Ka-band.

The scientists will undertake phase-wise orbit-raising manoeuvres in the following days to place the satellite in the Geostationary Orbit (36,000 km above the equator) using its onboard propulsion systems. The GSAT-11 will be positioned at 74-degree east longitude in the geostationary orbit.

Thereafter, the two solar arrays and four antenna reflectors of the GSAT-11 will be deployed into orbit. The satellite will be operational after the successful completion of all in-orbit tests.

"GSAT-11 will boost the broadband connectivity to rural and inaccessible Gram Panchayats in the country coming under the Bharat Net Project, which is part of the Digital India Programme. Today's successful mission has boosted the confidence of the entire team," said ISRO chief Dr K Sivan.

He also said GSAT-11 will act as a forerunner to all future high throughput communication satellites.

Post-separation, ISRO's Master Control Facility in Karnataka's Hassan took over command and control of GSAT-11 and found its health parameters to be normal.

The scientists will undertake phase-wise orbit-raising manoeuvres in the following days to place the satellite in the Geostationary Orbit (36,000 km above the equator) using its onboard propulsion systems. The GSAT-11 will be positioned at 74-degree east longitude in the geostationary orbit.

          India’s Heaviest Satellite GSAT-11Successfully Launched by ISRO      Cache   Translate Page      

Story 3

NET Bureau

India’s most-advanced high-throughput communication satellite GSAT-11 was successfully launched from Spaceport in French Guiana, on early Wednesday morning.

The satellite weighs 5854-kg GSAT-11 and is the heaviest satellite ever built by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). It has a mission life of 15 years. This would give a major boost to broadband connectivity in rural areas.

“GSAT-11 will boost the broadband connectivity to rural and inaccessible Gram Panchayats in the country coming under the Bharat Net Project, which is part of Digital India Programme,” said ISRO Chairman Dr K Sivan.

The Bharat Net Project aims to enhance the public welfare schemes like e-banking, e-health, e-governance among others. It targets high throughput data rate connectivity at 16 Gigabits per second.

The satellite was launched using heavyweight rocket Ariane 5, which is one of three launch vehicles operated by Arianespace along with Soyuz and Vega. The launch vehicle Ariane 5 VA-246 carrying India’s GSAT-11 and one of South Korea’s satellite, lifted off from Kourou Launch Base, French Guiana at 02:07 am (IST).

After a 30-min flight, GSAT-11 separated from the Ariane 5 upper stage and reached close to the intended orbit. Soon after its separation, ISRO’s Master Control Facility at Hassan in Karnataka took over the command and control of GSAT-11 and found its health parameters normal.

The scientists would now undertake phase-wise orbit tests to place the satellite in the Geostationary Orbit which is 36,000 km above the equator using its on-board propulsion systems, after which the satellite is expected to become operational.

ISRO has successfully completed three satellite and two launch vehicle missions in last one month.

          La MaMa Announces THE SHELL-SHOCKED NUT      Cache   Translate Page      

From December 20 to 23, La MaMa Experimental Theater in association the GOH Productions will present the fourth annual production of East Village Dance Project's The Shell-Shocked Nut, an alternative Nutcracker set in the East Village, featuring an intergenerational cast of dancers and musicians. The piece is recommended for family audiences.

In this unconventional take on the seasonal staple, a wandering child and a war veteran suffering from PTSD take a magical voyage through the East Village. The pair of characters visit Tompkins Square Park, Economy Candy Store, Saint Mark's Place, and other iconic East Village landmarks while exploring themes of loss and recovery.

The New York Times said of the Shell-Shocked Nut, "The East Village has a "Nutcracker" of its own and, fittingly, it's on the gritty side." Time Out NY chose the production as a "Critics' Pick".

The Shell-Shocked Nut is conceived and directed by Martha Tornay and co-directed by Victoria Roberts-Wierzbowski. The pair also spearhead East Village Dance Project (EVDP), a dance development program that has offered after-school classes in ballet, modern and choreography in lower Manhattan since 1997.

The show first emerged as a studio showing in the weeks after Superstorm Sandy created as a means of brightening spirits after a challenging time for the community. "I started thinking about the cathartic process of working through a stressful situation," Tornay said.

The sister and daughter of war veterans, Tornay was inspired to use the structure of the Nutcracker to tell a more personal story of the effects of trauma, while maintaining the accessible, family-friendly nature of the traditional ballet.

In the years following its inception, the piece has grown to a full-scale production, featuring young students from the dance program alongside an array of professional performers, artists and guest choreographers from NYC and beyond. The 2018 Guest Artists include the New Mexico-based Aerial group, Project in Motion; Detroit-based dance artists Shaina and Bryan Baira; and New York City performers Delaney McDonough, Indah Walsh, Chloe London, Xiao Quan, Lauren Kravitz, Ellen Maynard and OBIE-winning scenic designer Donald Eastman.

Local composer Clare Farris created original pieces for the show, based off the Tchaikovsky score. The show also includes sections of Tchaikovsky in its unadulterated state, Massachusetts-based musician/composer Peter Jones, and contemporary tracks by Duke Ellington, David Lowery, Lynn Anderson, Aretha Franklin and more.

The Shell-Shocked Nut will run from Dec. 20-23, Thurs to Sat at 7PM; Sunday at 3PM. Tickets are $20 and $15 seniors, students and children 12 and under, and can be purchased online at lamama.org or at the Box Office: (212) 352-3101

FUNDING: The East Village Dance Project and this project are supported, in part with public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts; and with support from private donors.

GOH Productions' mission is embodied in our logo, GOH, the Japanese character meaning "working together under one roof." That definition informs all the organization's work - collaborative and expansive, stretching the sky to its fullest capacity. GOH began in 1979, during a time of fiscal cutbacks and political turmoil; and faces, head-on, the challenges of nurturing artworks and artistic collaboration, testing the boundaries and borders of all categories. GOH has a primary goal of working with experimental and interdisciplinary artists to clarify their artistic vision and to make possible the production of new works in a variety of genres and in a variety of global landscapes. In the mid-1970s, GOH was founded as 7 Loaves, Inc. a non-profit arts producing and presenting organization in the Lower East Side/East Village of New York City. In 1988 the organization's name was changed to GOH Productions (GOH), and Bonnie Sue Stein became its Artistic and Executive Director, a position she still holds. Stein works with directly with a number of performing artists on the creation and development of collaborative projects in the U.S. and with international partners.

La MaMa is dedicated to the artist and all aspects of the theatre. La MaMa's vision of nurturing new artists and new work remains as strong today as it was when Ellen Stewart first opened the doors in 1961. La MaMa has presented more than 5,000 productions by 150,000 artists of all nations, cultures, races, and identities. Cultural pluralism and ethnic diversity are inherent in the work created on our stages. Here, artists find a supportive environment for artistic exploration, and audiences are part of the development of an artist's work over time.

A recipient of the 2018 Regional Theater Tony Award, and more than 30 Obie Awards and dozens of Drama Desk, Bessie, and Villager Awards, La MaMa has been a creative home for thousands of artists, many of whom have made lasting contributions to the arts, including Blue Man Group, Peter Brook, Ping Chong, André DeShields, Harvey Fierstein, Tadeusz Kantor, Adrienne Kennedy, Diane Lane, Warren Leight, Michael Mayer, Bette Midler, Meredith Monk, Kazuo Ohno, David and Amy Sedaris, Julie Taymor, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.

          Oh, I actually am White-Washed.      Cache   Translate Page      

Have you ever met someone or found yourself saying something like this?

There were many times when I was judged by someone right off the bat, and what would hurt was that this person assumed my characteristics/ behavior patterns were due to my being asians.  How dare he/she.  This led me to defend myself by saying I was actually white-washed and unlike the ‘asians’ this person had met before.  I wanted to be viewed as loud, crazy, and unpredictable, and not this quiet, non-opinionated, submissive woman.

I thought it was clever, let people know how ‘white’ you are by demonstrating your hatred or discontent for other asians, especially my Korean culture.  But long two year trip to South Korea made me think about this term in another way.

I was in Korea, and the people never asked me this question, because obviously, I looked Korean.  No one gave a shit.  Except, well, myself.  I didn’t have to prove to anyone that I was ‘white-washed’ or not ‘Korean’.  No one cared.  And then I thought, why do I care so much about what other people think about me?

No one likes to be judged based on the color of their skin.  Even asians.  And especially, asians who have been born, grown up and have lived their entire lives in a country that does not fit their profile.  Yes, it sucks, but that doesn’t mean we need to abandon our culture or look down upon it.

In the states, I think we have this view that our asian background is not American enough.  It says freedom to be who we are, but really, people don’t want to know about our culture.  5 years ago, South Korea was barely known by the general population of American.  Now, at least, we’re associated with North Korea, Psy, and K-pop.

Looking back at myself, I didn’t think this meant too much.  But the meaning behind those words meant something deeper that I slowly started to understand, once I heard other friends of mine refer to themselves as a ‘banana’ or a ‘twinkie’.  The real question is, why do you want to be white? And why is this so important to assert this?  We should embrace our culture, and our American culture, or the soil we grew up in, but we should never be ashamed of ourselves, because, at the end of the day, you’re still Korean physically.  And that won’t change.

Isn’t it silly when you meet someone who doesn’t identify with their own race? It’s a little funny because it is!  France does a great job of accepting both cultures. It’s time, we stop wanting others to see ourselves as something other than asian.

Sure, I consider myself a little ghetto at times; I’ll walk around with no shoes on out in public in sweats, talk with a little bit of a slang, because I like it, I’ve grown up with hip-hop music.  But for the love of God, I will not say I’m black. Just like I won’t say I am more ‘white’ than ‘asian’.  Why?  Because I am just me. You don’t hear Sik-E saying he’s ghetto or really a black guy.  You don’t hear Rich Chigga tryin’ to let people know he’s ACTUALLY more black than an asian. He just owns it, even with his fanny pack.

download

Which brings me to my next point, if I date a guy, and he happens to be white.  I don’t just like ‘white guys’.  And for the caucasian guys, don’t say you have ‘yellow-fever’ or be this guy.  You just like what you like.  When I was dating a German guy, oddly enough, when people asked me if he was white, I would say he’s German, and people associated it as two different things.  Are white guys suppose to be from America? Should I call my ex boyfriend a European guy now?

Can we just stop with the goddam labels?  It’s making me confused.  Why can’t people just like other people, be who they are, and not get asked stupid questions.

I think if we start acting this way, people would stop acting like being born ‘Asian’ is such an uncool thing.  If it helps, we have Crazy Rich Asian now.

Anyway, what do you think? Should we just stop using this dumb words that ‘identify’ us? Have you experienced something similar? How do you deal with someone assuming your ‘asian-ness’? What do you think about other people calling themselves ‘white-washed’?

If you’re not asian, has anyone said this to you? What did you think when someone said this to you?

          India is third largest contributor to Zenith’s 3-year global adex prediction      Cache   Translate Page      

MUMBAI: Zenith has predicted that the global ad expenditure will grow 4.5 per cent in 2018, reaching $581 billion by the end of the year. For the coming years, the agency expects the advertising expenditure to grow behind the global economy and its forecast has mentioned 4 per cent growth for 2019, followed by 4.2 per cent in 2020 and 4.1 per cent in 2021.

The forecast for 2019 is slightly down from its September prediction of 4.2 per cent growth.

The report has indicated that regions in ‘Fast-track Asia’ (India, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam) are expecting the growth to rise to an average of 6.2 per cent a year to 2021.

India has been ranked third (followed by USA and China) in the list of top ten contributors to ad-spend growth 2018-2021 and is expected to see $4,506 million in ad-spends, which is 6 per cent of the expected total global advertising expenditure

North American ad-spend will grow 3 per cent in 2019 and will show an average 3.4 per cent growth each year to 2021 as the “ad market has been growing fairly steadily but unspectacularly since 2010”. Latin America is expected to record an average growth rate of 4.1 per cent a year to 2021. Combining “large scale and rapid growth” China will contribute 19 per cent to the global growth rate and will spend $14,461 million for advertisements.

The forecast has further revealed that six of the ten largest contributors will be rising markets (China, India, Indonesia, Brazil,  South Korea and Russia), and they will contribute 37 per cent of new ad-spend over the next three years.

          Minerva Project draws notice for its practical, rigorous curriculum and student learning results      Cache   Translate Page      

Much of the attention the Minerva Project received around its much-watched launch in 2012 focused on the start-up’s lofty goal of creating an elite “Ivy League 2.0” university, with top traditional-age students doing immersive stints at campus locations around the world while also taking online courses.

But Minerva’s biggest success so far is its curriculum, which the university describes as a systematic rethinking of the liberal arts. The nonbuzzy approach hearkens back to higher education’s roots with a focus on practical, vocational knowledge, and is drawing attention from both traditional academics and would-be disrupters.

“They’re focused on the learning outcomes that we feel are most critical,” said Lynn Pasquerella, president of the Association of American Colleges and Universities.

Pasquerella praised Minerva’s highly structured curriculum and its emphasis on project-based, hands-on learning, which ensures that assignments become more challenging at each step.

“It’s applicable to all institutions and should be adopted,” said Pasquerella, former president of Mount Holyoke College. “Their results are impressive.”

Minerva has numbers to back up the praise.

In fall 2016, first-year students at the Minerva Schools at KGI took the Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA+). The test is a standardized measure of students’ performance in analysis, problem solving, scientific and quantitative reasoning, critical reading and evaluation, and critiquing an argument. While the CLA+ is controversial in some circles, it’s perhaps the most respected assessment of collegiate-level learning.

A previous iteration of the test was used famously for the research that underpinned the 2011 book Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses (University of Chicago Press). The high-profile book found that 45 percent of college students showed no significant learning gains after two years of college.

Minerva’s incoming class in 2016 performed in the 95th percentile on the CLA+ compared to their peers at other colleges. That wasn’t particularly surprising, the university acknowledged, given its admissions rate of just 1.2 percent, which is more selective than Ivy League universities.

However, Minerva gave the same group of students the CLA+ eight months later. They performed in the 99th percentile compared to seniors at other institutions. The university ranked first among all institutions that administered the test.

“They did well, very well,” said Roger Benjamin, president and CEO of the Council for Aid to Education, the creator of the CLA+. The assessment's strength, many have said, is that it attempts to measure the "value add" of a college education, which has come under increasing scrutiny in recent years.

The curriculum and pedagogical approach are behind the high-flying scores, Minerva’s leaders said. The university bans lectures and requires that students be actively engaged at least three-quarters of the time while in their seminar classes, meaning that they must participate rather than passively listen to an instructor. By incorporating the science of learning across the curriculum, Minerva strives to improve how its students think before they move on to the specific subject matter most colleges emphasize.

“A lot of universities are coming to touch Minerva to see if it’s real,” said Ben Nelson, the founder, chairman and CEO of the Minerva Project.

Global University, Global Curriculum

Minerva wants to export its learning model to other universities, particularly for honors programs or for newer, hungry institutions that aren’t bogged down by traditional thinking.

“We are the only university who tells you how to do it, in a box,” said Nelson. “This is our focus. Our goal is to enable structural, broad-based higher education reform.”

One of Minerva’s first big gets was the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, a prestigious research institution. The university in April partnered with Minerva to allow its students to take Minerva’s four “cornerstone” courses, which focus on foundational critical thinking, during their first two years of study. In exchange, Minerva’s fourth-year students will have the option of spending part of their final year taking classes and conducting research at HKUST.

Minerva features two divisions. The for-profit Minerva Project, based in San Francisco, provides technological and other supports to the nonprofit side, the Minerva Schools at KGI, as well as to other institutions. The university division’s name refers to its unusual partnership with the Keck Graduate Institute, a nonprofit graduate university that Minerva teamed up with in 2014 to gain approval from a regional accreditor for its degree programs. Keck is part of the Claremont Colleges consortium, which includes highly selective, traditional liberal arts colleges.

The corporate side of Minerva has substantial revenue potential, experts said, from working with other universities to help them adapt versions of its curriculum or to use Minerva’s online learning technology.

Even so, Minerva isn’t particularly protective of its curricular approach. Nelson and Stephen M. Kosslyn, Minerva’s founding dean and chief academic officer, last year published a book, Building the Intentional University: Minerva and the Future of Higher Education (MIT Press), that they edited on the “blueprint” for the curriculum. (Kosslyn, a high-profile hire who previously worked at Harvard and Stanford Universities and helped develop Minerva, left earlier this year to create Foundry College, which is aimed at adult students.)

“Universities owe it to themselves to try it,” Nelson said.

Pasquerella agreed. While pockets of experimentation with serious curricular revamps can be found across higher education in the U.S., Pasquerella said Minerva’s approach likely will be most appealing in countries like South Korea, which are rapidly adding to their research university capacity.

“There’s a huge interest in applied liberal learning,” she said.

Nelson still has plenty of goals for the Minerva Schools at KGI, which now enrolls 600 undergraduates but has a target enrollment of 10,000 by 2025.

Students at Minerva pay $13,450 in annual tuition, with a total estimated cost of $30,950 per year. That total includes housing in Minerva’s seven residential locations. Undergraduates begin with eight months in San Francisco and then spend semesters in Buenos Aires; London; Berlin; Hyderabad, India; Taipei, Taiwan; and Seoul, South Korea.

Minerva also this fall launched its first graduate program, a master’s degree in decision analysis, with part-time and full-time options. The degree program focuses on “systematic thinking tools,” Nelson said. “That’s what we’re really good at.”

Despite its relative success so far at creating a legitimately groundbreaking university, Minerva faces challenges at getting to scale. The business model is tricky, not least of which because of the high cost of creating residential student living options in expensive global cities.

But it seems like a safe bet that Minerva’s curriculum will have a broad impact. And Nelson tends to think big.

“Our ambition is to change higher education all over the world,” Nelson said. “This is something anybody should be using.”

S.Korea's Moon still hopes to host Kim this yearNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un could still visit Seoul for the first time in the next few weeks, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Tuesday, describing the possible trip as a major boost in efforts to make the peninsula nuclear-free. Moon and Kim have met three times in 2018 amid warming ties between the two Koreas, with South Korea hoping to host a first-ever visit by Kim to Seoul before year's end. "There is a possibility that Chairman Kim Jong Un's visit to Seoul may be made within this year, but there's more important things than the timing," he said in translated remarks during a visit to New Zealand.

          Body Language Analysis No. 4364: Vladimir Putin's and Mohammed bin Salman's High Five at the G20 - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)      Cache   Translate Page      



Putin has never smiled so sincerely on the world stage. And in spite of increasingly disturbing details continuing to emerge regarding the torture and murder of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi Crown Prince was similarly celebratory.

In a nonverbal amalgam of a High-Five and a Bro handshake, Vladimir Putin and Mohammed bin Salman conducted more than a bit of theater in Buenos Aires on Friday, 30 November 2018. Their actions could easily be substituted for two athletes - jubilant after scoring a goal.

Both Putin and the Prince have had journalists and their political enemies killed - and yet both men have gone unpunished. Moreover, Russia has recently renewed its military aggression against Ukraine - while the Saudi-led War in Yemen continues to kill tens of thousands of civilians via explosives, disease, and massive starvation.

What follows is a detailed nonverbal analysis of this G20 moment.


In this screen-grab, we can see Putin's:

• Eyelids are momentarily closed
• Forehead is relaxed
• Lower eyelids are evanescently furrowed
• Cheek muscles are vectored primarily upward
• Upper teeth are showing (while his lower teeth are not exposed)
• Face is blushing

Vladimir's smile is NOT feigned - rather it's quite sincere. Moreover, there's also a component of laughter. In this moment, the Russian is experiencing true joy-happiness.

The elevation of their hands is also quite significant - for the higher the hands, the greater the joy. 


A split second later, their hands enthusiastically meet. Donald Trump, in the background, appears to be looking briefly at the two men.


Mohammed bin Salman then pats the back of Vladimir Putin's right hand three times. While in serious contexts, such momentary double hand clasps would be a dominance display - in the midst of true joy-happiness, this action augments their jovial emotions - similar to back-slapping. It also serves as a bonding agent.

Note that Putin's eyelids are still completely closed - a characteristic common to significant and sincere laughter.


The majority of times, during traditional handshakes, most people make the profound mistake of making very little eye contact. Yet, as the Crown Prince continues to pat President Putin's hand, the Russian reestablishes eye contact.

These two additional handshake components - the Prince's hand patting and Putin's repeated eye contact - are crucial and drive home the significance and true sincerity of this moment.


As they turn to sit down and Mohammed bin Salman turns his face in view of the camera, we can see he also has a sincere smile of true joy-happiness (aka a Duchenne Smile). His closed/almost closed eyelids also signal a component of true laughter.


As he sits down Putin gives the Prince another round of eye contact.


And another.


After they sit down, they once again shake hands in the bro-handshake - common to younger men in informal settings. Mohammed bin Salman crescendos into more intense laughter - while Putin continues his sincere smiling.


In another intriguing moment, both men simultaneously readjust in their chairs. This behavior, termed Mirroring, is a signal they are of similar mindsets, they like each other - and indeed are in sync.


The Saudi Crown Prince then rapidly rotates his head once quickly to his right (0:22 - 0:23) - very much nonverbally celebrating/exclaiming to his partner, "Can you believe it! This is too good to be true!" - as the Russian President looks on.


Putin then clears his throat (0:23) as he displays just a bit of post-performance anxiety - signifying the thought-emotion of, "Okay, that bit of acting is over".

SUMMARY: There's no doubt that Vladimir Putin and Mohammed bin Salman at least partially choreographed their greeting at the G20 for all the world to witness. And in so doing, they were very deliberately giving the middle finger to the rest of the planet - particularly the United States, the U.S. Senate - and especially President Trump.

If you were directing a film and desired to signal to your audience that these two characters had indeed planned this scene - look no further than Putin and the Crown Prince for an example. But, it's crucial to note, that although their performance was planned, at the same time both men were quite sincere in their displays of true joy.

Acts some people find to be heinous and reprehensible - are those in which others will take pleasure.

You may very well despise Vladimir Putin and Mohammed bin Salman - but here's the Rub: to note similar times when someone who you like, believe, and/or trust - exhibits identical nonverbal behavior (e.g., in everyday scenarios). If we fall victim to confirmation bias - would we then be able to spot the lie? The Insincerity? The manipulation? No - most people would be fooled.

          G20: You can smell tear gas in the streets as the oil industry squabbles      Cache   Translate Page      
What the G20 and OPEC meetings mean for the political relations, economies, and people of the world.

Last week, two important meetings took place—one, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, of the Group of 20 (G20) nations, and two, in Vienna, Austria, of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other oil producers. The two meetings did not produce any resolution to the major economic challenges in the world. But they did soothe the nerves of financial markets. At the G20, the United States and China dialed down the temperature over trade but did not settle the long-term grievances each side has of the other. At the OPEC+ meeting, Russia and Saudi Arabia agreed to cut production and raise the price of oil despite pressure from the United States and others to keep oil prices low.

At neither meeting did the major powers find solutions to their problems. They are all caught in mazes from which there are no easy exits. But what calmed the world of finance was that the geopolitical tension between the major powers seemed to have lessened. What impact this reduced tension has for the world’s people, however, is not clear.

Trade

The “trade war” engineered by U.S. President Donald Trump against China began with tariffs and ended with a damp squib. At the G20, Trump told China’s Xi Jinping that the U.S. tariffs that would have gone up to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports will no longer be applied. China, for its part, said that it would import more goods from the United States. No specifics were announced, which is why the tensions over even this agreement spilled over onto Twitter (courtesy of Trump’s hyperbole) and into more sober statements from the Chinese government.

The more fundamental questions of intellectual property and currency valuation remain unsolved. The United States accuses China of theft of the intellectual property of U.S. firms, but the Chinese counter—as they have in the arbitration panels of the World Trade Organization—that they merely draw from technology transferred as a result of commercial agreements freely made by firms eager to use Chinese labor. It will be impossible to resolve these two problems, since neither side sees the issues in the same way. Their worldviews regarding intellectual property and currency valuation are utterly alien to each other. If the United States believes that China is unfairly valuing its currency, the Chinese point to the unfair advantage that the dollar has over every currency in the world since it is used as one of the major global currencies for facilitation of trade and for the storage of wealth.

Oil

Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman offered each other a friendly hand slap at the G20. Everyone seemed happy to see Mohammed bin Salman, despite the clear evidence of his role in the murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

But the real agreements between Russia and Saudi Arabia were not directly made in Buenos Aires. They were made more quietly in Vienna at the OPEC+ meeting. At Buenos Aires, Putin said, “yes, we have an agreement to prolong our accords.” He was referring to the deal between Russia and Saudi Arabia since 2016 to manage oil prices to their mutual benefit. The deal notwithstanding, Saudi Arabia has continued to pump itself into trouble—flooding the market with oil, driving prices down and depleting its own treasury as a result. Now Russia is eager to see oil production cuts and oil prices rise. Trapped by sanctions and by low oil prices, Russia has plunged into internal economic difficulties. The real issue was how much each country inside and outside OPEC should pump. That is why Putin said, “there is no final deal on volumes.” In fact, even after the deal has begun to emerge, there is no final deal. Saudi Arabia has not been a good partner here. It has pumped outside the numbers over the course of the past few years, largely under pressure from the United States.

There are two reasons why the United States wants low oil prices, despite the fact that the U.S. is now one of the world’s largest oil producers. First, low oil prices mean an immediate subsidy for the U.S. consumer and for U.S. manufacturing firms. There is no economic incentive to move to renewable energy when oil prices are low. Second, low oil prices hit adversaries of the U.S.-led world order that—as it happens—are major oil producers. The list includes Iran and Venezuela, two countries that have been sent into internal turmoil as oil prices have plummeted. But the United States has sufficient tools to hurt these countries without forcing oil prices down. For instance, even if oil prices rise, U.S. sanctions can be harsh enough to cut Iranian and Venezuelan oil out of the market. The lack of Iranian and Venezuelan oil operates as an effective cut in oil production, which will itself raise oil prices.

Saudi Arabia has already begun to pressure Libya and Nigeria to reduce oil exports, although both these African countries are reliant upon oil revenues. Saudi Arabia has succeeded in pushing Qatar out of OPEC on political grounds, but since Qatar only produces 2 percent of OPEC’s crude oil the departure, Qatexit is not meaningful. Inside the world of oil, there are those who are always pushed aside so that others can benefit.

Oil Buyers’ Club

In 2005, Indian Petroleum Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar assembled his counterparts from across Asia to start a discussion on a buyers’ club. The precise issue on the table was the “Asian Premium” charged by Saudi Arabia and other oil producers to Asian countries. The “Asian Premium” is substantial—close to $10 billion per year for the Asian consumers of Gulf oil. It is what bothered Aiyar and the other oil ministers. But they did not come to any agreement.

Asia is the largest importer of oil in the world. India and China, with the United States, are the three largest importers of oil. Right behind them are Japan and South Korea. If you add the oil imports by China, India, Japan and South Korea, then these four Asian countries import a full third of world oil imports. They are both reliant upon the oil exporters, but they also have power as a bloc of consumers.

In 2012, China’s premier Wen Jiabao said that there needed to be a counter-cartel to OPEC that should include Europe and the United States. Interest in his proposal was minimal. Oil had reached $100 per barrel. It stifled economic growth and did not move any of these industrial giants toward non-carbon renewable fuel.

The issue of a buyers’ cartel came back on the table in April this year at the International Energy Forum. The chairman of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Sanjiv Singh and the chairman of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) Wang Yilin then met in Beijing to go deeper into the possibility. By June, China and India—which import 17 percent of the world’s oil—had begun to openly talk about a buyers’ cartel to help create “stable and moderate” oil prices, as India’s current Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan put it.

China and India have been upset by the U.S. sanctions on Iran. They have felt that these produce an adverse impact on Asian economies. They are joined by Japan and the European Union, who are also not pleased with these sanctions. It is now being said that if China and India establish a buyers’ club, Japan and Europe will join in.

Smell of Tear Gas

From the air-conditioned rooms of the oligarchy, we go to the tear gas of the streets.

Protests in Paris, France, have been the most violent in decades. The yellow vests (gilets jaunes) appeared as if out of nowhere to demonstrate against the French government’s hike in fuel prices. They make the case that the violence of the economy has destroyed their ability to function. Any violence on the streets is a reflection of the violence that structures their lives. The streets of Paris smelled of tear gas.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina, labor unions and political groups of one kind or another planned massive protests against the G20. They wanted to scream at their leaders, who have been deaf to their pleas. But the Argentinian government held the G20 meeting at the Costa Salguero convention center, on the magnificent Rio de La Plata. Police cordoned off the area, while the coast guard boats sailed up and down the river. No one could get near the site. None of the leaders were interrupted by the chants.

There were no protests in Vienna. The OPEC building was nonetheless surrounded by the elite WEGA units. No one knew that the meeting was being held. There is so little democracy in the institutions that structure our lives.

While Samsung frequently produces advertisements that brutally poke fun at Apple’s iPhone, it turns out that the South Korean tech giant might not be as convinced about its own products.

Tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee discovered this week that Samsung’s Nigerian account had uploaded a video touting the ‘SuperAMOLED’ display of the Galaxy Note 9… using Twitter for iPhone.

Funnily enough, Brownlee was seemingly blocked by the account upon his little exposé.

If this scenario sounds familiar to you, that’s because Samsung has committed similar gaffes in the past.

Just weeks back, Samsung Saudi tweeted about the model’s ‘SuperAMOLED’ display via an iPhone, and the company’s Brazilian account was found to have flaunted the Galaxy A8’s photographic prowess with stock images in August.

Some top aides to President Moon Jae-in stressed it was an issue for the two Koreas alone and there was no need to involve their US ally, according to two people with knowledge of the situation.

          China’s mobile advertisers spend more on Singles’ Day      Cache   Translate Page      

Mobile advertisers in China are spending big on Singles’ Day with increases of up to 48 percent, according to a new analysis of mobile ad spending in the Asia Pacific (APAC) leading up to Singles’ Day.

Chinese advertisers spending more

Smaato analyzed data from billions of mobile ad impressions served on its exchange in the month leading up to Singles’ Day and found that Chinese advertisers were spending big even as new records in sales were being made. Smaato is a real-time advertising platform for mobile publishers and app developers.

Mobile advertising spending rocketed in the lead up to Singles’ Day, and expenditure on the day itself rose by more than 50% above average. Specifically, when comparing the expenditure from Singles’ Day and the days immediately prior to it (November 9 to 11) and the previous 30-day period, mobile ad spending in the former was 48% higher than the period average.

Smaato says this could be due to e-commerce players viewing Singles’ Day as an opportunity to increase sales despite the general dominance of Alibaba during the shopping holiday.

“This is a testament to the increasingly globalized nature of commerce. Countries such as Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, and South Korea saw major spikes in mobile ad spending leading up to Singles' Day along with China, the birthplace of the shopping festival. This indicates that Singles' Day is catching on in several markets in the region,” said Alex Khan, Smaato’s APAC managing director.

Khan says the effect of Singles’ Day was less pronounced across the rest of APAC, with Malaysia seeing a slight uptick while Thailand was 27% higher than average. However, Hong Kong and Japan saw dips in mobile ad spending during the period.

He predicts a similar trend come 12. 12, the next major shopping holiday in China.

          Non-Chinese Christians targeted in latest government crackdown      Cache   Translate Page      
China (MNN) -- Chinese Christians face yet another hurdle. There's been a recent wave of deportations of non-Chinese Christian leaders. Those who remain won't allow Chinese Christians into their services because they don’t want the Chinese government to kick them out. As described here, South Korean believers in Shandong province stopped a Chinese believer at the door, stating the following:

"The Chinese government has stipulated that Chinese people and foreigners cannot attend mass together... If we’re discovered holding mass with Chinese people, the government will prohibit us from conducting worship activities here. We will even be deported back to our home country. This isn’t what we want either, but we’re helpless.”

David Curry of Open Doors USA says government officials want to reduce the influence of “outsiders” on Chinese life. “The government wants to control access to the Western world. They strongly believe that the Church needs to be part and parcel of the Chinese government,” Curry explains.

“We want it to not be part of a temporal government, but about the words and the cause and the life – and the burial and resurrection – of Jesus.”

In the past year, China’s President has issued more than ten decrees that restrict religious activity. The Chinese government rolled out a brand new set of regulations in February and pushed underground churches to join their registry in July. Efforts to rewrite the Bible surfaced in October. “He (Xi Jinping) is trying to find a way to cut off the independence of the Church,” Curry says. “They’ve always had laws that they can use against the Church, but now they’re really starting to narrow the focus, sort of ‘cut off the oxygen I think, for the freedom of religious expression in China.” Right now, China’s pretty low on Open Doors’ World Watch List: a ranking of countries where persecution is highest. It’s sitting at #43 of 50 countries total. Curry says that ranking might change after this year’s events. “You have a massive amount of Christians in that country,” he notes. “It soon will be, if it’s not already, the largest Body of Christ anywhere in the world.” Pray believers will be bold and cling to their faith when faced with opposition. Pray that Christ will reveal Himself to government officials who seek to control the church.     Header photo courtesy Open Doors USA.

          Lee Chang-dong's Mysterious 'Burning' Simmers with an Inquisitive Tension      Cache   Translate Page      


None


Most films, whether or not they claim an outsized ambition, don't deserve a runtime longer than 120 minutes simply because too much action easily leads to a case of diminishing returns. Lee Chang-dong's Burning (Beoning) is the rare film that warrants such excess; its languorous passivity takes time to fester, all up to a point of inevitable climax when, seemingly out of pure necessity, a final action is taken that brings all parties the long-overdue gift of change.

There's something slightly alien about the film, too, which is expected, given its source material — a short story called "Barn Burning" by the Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami. In it is a tale of modern-day South Korea, but mostly a depiction of rural and suburban life that innately challenges both the hustle of late capitalism and the supposed duty of art to entertain. It's certainly not a thriller in the typical mode of chugging action and gun-toting machismo, but rather a haunting portrayal of inner turmoil, boiling over eventually into violence.

Jong-soo (Yoo Ah-in) is a recognizable figure to anyone familiar with Murakami's work, but such a distinction doesn't make him any less of an enigma. Open-faced but emotionally closed off, Jong-soo is a recent college graduate who lives on a farm outside Paju, a city near the North Korean border. He maintains the farm alone because his father, a revolutionary, was recently arrested for numerous violent outbursts against the government. (None of that is seen here, and his father's presence is only felt in the photographs around the house, which Jong-soo stares at with what we might assume is longing.)

Burning begins as Jong-soo meets a woman named Hae-mi (Jeon Jong-seo) in the city. She's selling tickets to a raffle by dancing while scantily clad and talking to passersby, and she tells Jong-soo that they were neighbors in their youth but that he used to ignore her. He doesn't seem to remember her, but regardless, he agrees to tag along for dinner. At dinner, she shows him a trick where she peels an imaginary tangerine — the trick, she says, is not to pretend that the tangerine is there, but to try and forget that it's not there — and afterwards they go back to her apartment and have sex. The scene isn't unromantic, but Jong-soo himself is completely passive, only responding to her questions with vague, dispassionate answers. Hae-mi takes the lead instead, monologuing about her own life and her upcoming trip to Africa. The next day, she leaves him behind to take care of her cat which, like the tangerine, may or may not actually be there.

None


In Hae-mi's absence, Jong-soo's life is back to its normal slog, save for the times when he goes to Hae-mi's apartment to feed the unseen cat and masturbate while looking at the tower outside her window. He wants to be a writer, but even that possibility is met with inaction because he doesn't know what to write about (his therapist suggests that he write about his father, but, by way of contemptuous laughter, he also suggests that he shouldn't bother trying to be a writer at all). It turns out that Hae-mi's return is the catalyst for his fiction, but not for the simple reason we might think.

Upon return, Hae-mi greets Jong-soo with another man named Ben (Steven Yeun) in tow. Ben is rich, handsome and composed, but perhaps most noteworthy is his affectless manner. He's affable and welcoming, but exudes an air of cold mystery (Jong-soo later compares him to Jay Gatsby). The situation is strange but matter-of-fact — although it might be convenient to label Jong-soo jealous or Ben defensive, neither appear much more than slightly curious of the other, and the three proceed to hang out as a trio in the coming weeks.

This isn't to say that there isn't tension, or that Jong-soo is altogether happy to have another man around, but Chang-dong takes painstaking measures not to telegraph any obvious sense of male jealousy, rage or competition. In fact, it's not even clear if Ben or Hae-mi are sleeping together, only that he appears one day and sticks around. One day, Ben invites them over to his gorgeous apartment in Seoul. Ben is only a few years older than Jong-soo, and when asked what he does for a living, he simply says: "I play." He also tells them that he's never cried, at least not recently, and has trouble relating to people when they do.

The revelation comes later, though, at Jong-soo's farm. The trio smoke pot, and after Hae-mi dances topless to a mesmerizing sunset (a particularly gorgeous scene in a roundly beautiful film), Ben confesses to Jong-soo that he has a peculiar hobby of burning down abandoned greenhouses. Furthermore, he tells him that he's already picked his next target, and that it's very close to the farm. A few days later, Hae-mi is missing, and Jong-soo starts going on routine runs around the country, searching for the greenhouse presumedly gone up in smoke.

None



Much can be assumed in Burning, but little can be proved. Is Ben a serial killer? Is burning greenhouses just a metaphor? Is Jong-soo, otherworldly and disengaged, a reliable narrator to begin with? There are other theories: Maybe Jong-soo and Ben are simply another form of Fight Club doubling, with one who's mild-mannered and ineffectual and another who knows just how to get exactly what he wants. Maybe it's their meeting, and their mutual recognition as two individuals completely out of sync with the normal world, that spurns a kind of life-affirming reckoning at the film's end. Lost in the mix, sadly, is Hae-mi who, despite a great performance from Jong-seo, is somewhat reduced to a man's plaything. She's the woman who gives a sad man a reason to live.

But aside from poetic imagery and a pulsating score that thrust the film onto an off-kilter plane, Burning also includes recognizable present-day details. Jong-soo's farm, for example, is so close to the North Korean border that he can hear the country's radio propaganda. Elsewhere on the radio, commentators discuss South Korea's college graduate unemployment rate — a statistic Jong-soo, with his unspirited attempts at making a living, fully wallows in. And even Hae-mi, seemingly carefree, turns out to be laden with huge credit card debts.

If Burning is uninterested in offering distinct answers about its characters and their plights, it's at least committed to exploring ennui and desperation in the abstract. Jong-soo has very little, and Ben has everything, but in each other's presence both admit to a simmering desire for more. It's a festering internal journey, and one that stands in contrast to the indifference of the external world. It's a riveting film to watch.

A accumulating of added countries, including Japan, Russia, South Africa, and South Korea annular out the blow of that list, with a few dozen underperforming atramentous plants each.

If these atramentous plants are absolutely accident money, again why are they still up and running? According to Carbon Tracker, it’s because taxpayers are befitting them afloat. Here in the United States, we pay billions of dollars in subsidies to anticipate hundreds of atramentous plants from closing. According to the calculations from Carbon Tracker, the U.S. could save about $78 billion if we bankrupt best of our atramentous plants over the abutting few decades.

Continuing to prop up atramentous could aggravate the problem. By 2040, about 72 percent of the world’s atramentous plants will be unprofitable, acceptation the costs to angel those losses will skyrocket. If we don’t alpha replacing our atramentous plants with added assisting renewables soon, we could all end up advantageous the price.

          South Korea Sends 1st Train In Plan To Reconnect With North      Cache   Translate Page      
Progress toward an agreement between the U.S. and North Korea may have slowed, but South Korea has taken another remarkable step toward linking up with the neighboring regime — by train. Last week, a South Korean train crossed the border into North Korea for the first time in a decade. It was a prelude to the two Koreas reconnecting their railways, after being separated for more than half a century. South Korea is determined to push railway development forward, despite the lack of progress on the North Korean nuclear issue. At the Dorasan Station, the last stop before the inter-Korean border, South Korean Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon on Friday saw off nearly 30 engineers and officials, as they prepared to head north. "Through the connected railways, South and North Korea will prosper together," he said, "and solidify peace on the Korean Peninsula." North and South Korean inspectors will cover about 1,600 miles over 18 days, surveying the state of the rails in North Korea. They

          Carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels to hit record levels in 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
Data: Global Carbon Atlas; Chart: Harry Stevens/Axios

Global carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels are projected to rise by more than 2% in 2018 to the highest levels in recorded history, according to a new study by the Global Carbon Project.

Why it matters: The data clearly shows that the rapid growth in low carbon technologies, such as solar and wind power as well as electric vehicles, are not yet sufficient to cause global emissions of planet-warming gases to peak or decline.


The report comes as climate negotiators gather in Katowice, Poland, for the latest round of UN climate talks, and shortly after other research has warned that progress to cut emissions is happening far too slowly to prevent potentially catastrophic levels of global warming.

Details: The growth in carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels and industry is expected to be about 2.7% in 2018, the report estimates, with a range of between 1.8% and 3.7%, given the range of uncertainty.

  • "The growing global demand for energy is outpacing decarbonization efforts. This needs to change, and it needs to change quickly," said Corinne Le Quéré, director of the Tyndall Center for Climate Change Research in the U.K., in a statement.

The new data for 2018, published Wednesday, shows that global emissions from burning fossil fuels are expected to hit 37.1 billion metric tons in 2018, a record high and the second straight year of growth that followed 3 years of a flat trend.

The trend: This year’s rising emission figures are largely due to an uptick in coal use, while oil use is also growing in most regions, including the U.S.

  • The 10 biggest emitters in 2018 are China, the U.S., India, Russia, Japan, Germany, Iran, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Canada, the report finds. The EU as a whole region of countries ranks third.

By the numbers: A recent report from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found that to limit global warming to the Paris Agreement's goal of 1.5°C, or 2.7°F, above preindustrial levels, emissions would need to be cut by 50% by 2030, and slashed to net zero by 2050.

The new report underscores the fact that we're headed in the opposite direction from what scientists and many world leaders say is needed.

The bottom line: "We are not doing enough! It is not enough to just support solar, wind, or electric vehicles," Glen Peters, research director at the CICERO Center for International Climate Research in Oslo who led the emissions analysis, told Axios via email.

"Unless policies are in place to stop carbon going into the atmosphere, we will never meet our climate goals. We have to support new technologies, while at the same time discouraging old technologies."

          Comment on Toxic Masculinity IS Masculinity? by culture learner      Cache   Translate Page      
I’m an international college student who came to US last year from South Korea. I’ve been learning cultures here in Bay Area. I’ve enjoyed talking about stereotypes that my American friends have because it was helpful for me to get deeper understanding of new culture by observing how my friends ended up perceiving those stereotypes that way and the social factors contributing to those stereotypes to be formed. My friend and I was heading to work together. We are in the middle of free way. All of a sudden, we heard a thundering noise. We looked back and it was a bike. The rider of the bike was only wearing a black shining leather vest and we could see him buffed up with muscles. “Wow, he is so cool”. I unconsciously said. And then, my friend asked me if I know the expression, ‘wife beating’. He started laughing and said, “He must be the wife beating type of guy”. My friend and I saw the same guy who looks tough and wild. My friend unconsciously thought that he must be violent and would beat his wife at home whereas I thought that he looks so cool. This quarter, I’m taking a class called “introduction to women’s study” at Foothill College and one thing that I recently learned from that class is ‘cognitive-development theory’, which discusses about how our brains develop from childhood onwards. Based on the theory, some of psychologists argue that human brain needs to make order out of what it perceives and focus on the individual’s internal needs to fulfill a learned gender identity”. Let me make use of myself as an example to make my point clear. It was in my first year at elementary school when I perceived gender identity for the first time in my life. I physically fought with a girl who was assigned to sit next to me. I was beaten by her and my PE teacher made fun of me in class. “You were defeated by a girl? You are such a disgrace to men”. My face turned red. Later, I watched a drama in which a husband was beating his wife and the wife seemed to take her husband’s violence for granted and didn’t fight back. I unconsciously organized and understood the perception of physical and social reality that man should be physically stronger and more violent than women and this perception has changed at different developmental stages as I got order. Now, I’m on the stage of “man should be strong enough to physically protect women”, because it is what I have always been told from my parents. But, too many guys still seem to be proud of themselves for behaving violently and treating women badly under their own gender perceptions formed with their personal social experiences. Since we are living in 21st century, where people pursue ‘equality’ under the name of democracy, I personally think we need to start thinking about social factors that have forced “many men to insist that masculinity is the same thing as toxic masculinity” (Article). Many of us already perceived those problems. And my experience from this class says, “it’s about time to fix it”.

Angus Maddison, the late professor of economics at the University of Groningen, never won a Nobel Prize for economics, but he did leave behind an enduring legacy in the form of his income estimates going back to the time of Christ (or, for the secularly-inclined, Caesar Augustus). On a previous occasion, I discussed the graph below, which shows the painfully slow (almost non-existent) growth in average per capita incomes prior to the Industrial Revolution and the extraordinary growth that humanity has experienced over the last two-and-half centuries. Adjusted for inflation, an average inhabitant of the planet is today roughly ten times as rich as she or he was just two centuries ago.


Considering that Homo sapiens only emerged as a unique species of hominids some 200,000 years ago, our experience with prosperity is incredibly short, amounting to no more than 0.1 percent of our time on Earth. The remarkable novelty of our present abundance may, perhaps, explain our unease with it ("all good things must come to an end") and our eschatological obsessions ranging from overpopulation to out-of-control global warming.
Continued human progress does, of course, depend on maintaining policies, institutions and ideas (intellectual enlightenment, classical liberalism and free exchange) that made it possible in the first place.

I was reminded of that fact on the death of my grandfather who, having been born in 1922, frequently mused about the relative prosperity of his native Czechoslovakia between the wars. A life-long anti-communist (for decades, he was prevented from practicing law, because he married the wrong kind of a girl; no, not a prostitute, but the daughter of a wealthy family), he always maintained that Czechoslovakia could have been as wealthy as Austria "if it hadn't been for the Bolshevik putsch of 1948."

Maddison's remarkable data allows us to see such "what ifs" very clearly. Czechoslovakia emerged as an independent nation from the ruins of the Austro-Hungarian Empire following the conclusion of the Great War in 1918. In 1920, the country's per capita income was 80 percent of that of Austria (the industrialized Czech lands were probably as wealthy as Austria, but the average was brought down by rural and poorer Slovakia) and kept up with Austria until the early 1950s. During the communist period, Czechoslovakia fell far behind Austria. When communism fell, income in the former amounted to a mere 54 percent of the latter.


Similar comparisons can be made between North and South Korea, East and West Germany, Argentina and Chile, or Zimbabwe and Botswana. The historical evidence in favor of "free minds and free markets," is there for everyone to see. Unfortunately, evidence does not appear to be sufficient to prevent socialism's continued appeal, as witnessed by the humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in Venezuela or periodic outbreaks of stupidity on American campuses.
