          'Accountability and transparency' in central banking? Not until news organizations attempt journalism      Comment   Translate Page      

2:50p ET Saturday, April 13, 2019

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Central banks get away with the flaming hypocrisy illustrated below because mainstream news organizations don't dare to put a critical question to them.

Here, if David Lawder and Leika Kihara of Reuters were serious journalists, and their editor, Paul Simao, had the wit for his job, someone from Reuters would have asked the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde -- in the name of the "accountability, transparency, and effective communication" she purported to be advocating -- to identify the markets in which her member central banks are surreptitiously trading and when they are surreptitiously trading, and to explain the objectives of their surreptitious trading.

... Dispatch continues below ...

We Are Amid the Biggest Financial Bubble in History;
When It Bursts, Bullion Owned in the Safest Way Will Protect Wealth

With GoldCore you can own allocated -- and most importantly -- segregated coins and bars in Switzerland, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Switzerland, Singapore, and Hong Kong remain extremely safe jurisdictions for storing bullion. Avoid exchange-traded funds and digital gold providers where you are a price taker. Ensure that you are outright legal owner of your bullion. If you do not own segregated bullion that you can visit, inspect, and take delivery of, you are exposed.

Crucial guides to storage in Singapore and Switzerland can be read here:

GoldCore does not report transactions to any authority. Safety, privacy, and confidentiality are paramount when we are entrusted with storage of our clients' precious metals.

Instead Reuters makes itself a mere press-release service, like PR Newswire.

How easy it would be for any news organization to show central bankers up and shut them up. A single critical question would do it, but there isn't one in all of Earthly journalism.

IMF Chief Calls for Central Bank Accountability, Communication

By David Lawder and Leika Kihara
Editing by Paul Simao
Reuters
Saturday, April 13, 2019

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-imf-worldbank-lagarde/imf-chief-calls...

WASHINGTON -- International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde said today accountability, transparency, and effective communication were key components for central banks to be credible in delivering their mandates.

"Independence has served them well in the course of time and will continue to do so," Lagarde said at a news conference when asked whether some central banks were facing threats to their independence in setting monetary policy.

Самые популярные предложения McDonald’s получили такой статус, что могут сами говорить за себя, будучи даже размытыми. В новой кампании от DDB Singapore креативщики хотели донести с помощью узнаваемых очертаний иное предложение – сервис доставки. Парижская художница Анне-Лаура Мэйсон изобразила Биг-Мак и фри в форме окон, зажженных поздно вечером. «Мы все задерживаемся допоздна по ряду причин. Независимо от времени, McDelivery Singapore будет всегда рядом», - отметили в DDB Group. Принты были выпущены в честь McDelivery Day в Сингапуре, который прошел с 8 по 11 апреля.

           Singapore's yearly waste weighs the same as 530,000 double-decker buses, and that's not sustainable: Masagos      Comment   Translate Page      
Michelle Ng Straits Times 13 Apr 19; SINGAPORE - Singapore generated 7.7 million tonnes of waste last year, equivalent to the weight of 530,000 double-decker buses. It is an amount that is not sustainable in the long run, said Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli. In addition to reducing waste and moving towards a more sustainable consumption, adopting a circular economy approach in the way Singapore use its resources is key, he added.

В статье авторы изучали динамику содержания азота, углерода и фосфора в частицах детрита, взвешенных в толще воды. Исследование проводили в двух пресноводных водоемах различной трофности. Детрит собран в естественных водных экосистемах на различных глубинах. Авторы обнаружили, что концентрация азота, фосфора и углерода в детритных частицах существенно уменьшалась в процессе осаждения детрита в водном столбе. Эта закономерность проявлялась и для мезотрофного водоема, и для эвтрофной водной экосистемы. Особенно быстро снижалось содержание фосфора в детритных частицах в ходе их оседания в столбеводы. Результаты были рассмотрены в связи с формированием качества воды. Новые факты и их анализ позволяют дополнить список важнейших функций детрита в водных экосистемах. Выявлен новый аспект сопряжения экологических и биогеохимических процессов в водных экосистемах. При анализе результатов авторы использовали инновационную концепцию экзометаболизма, предложенную и разработанную в книге “Гидробионты в самоочищении вод” (С.А. Остроумов, 2008).

  Dynamics of Content of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Carbon in Particles of Detritus Suspended in Water Phase of Ecosystems: Consideration of Water Quality Formation and Exometabolism Ostroumov S.A.1, Sadchikov A.P.1
1 Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow
 
In the article the authors studied the dynamics of nitrogen, carbon and phosphorus content in detrital particles suspended in the water column. The study was carried out in two freshwater reservoirs of different trophic levels. Detritus was collected in natural aquatic ecosystems at various depths. The authors found that the concentrations of nitrogen, phosphorus and carbon in detrital particles decreased significantly during detritus sedimentation in the water column. This pattern was manifested both for the mesotrophic reservoir and for the eutrophic aquatic ecosystem. It was phosphorus concentration that decreased expecially rapidly during their sedimentation in the column of water. The results were considered in connection with the formation of water quality. New facts and their analysis make it possible to supplement the list of the most important functions of detritus in aquatic ecosystems. As a result, a new aspect of coupling of ecological and biogeochemical processes in aquatic ecosystems was revealed. In the analysis of the results, the authors used an innovative scientific term, namely, exometabolism, which was proposed by S.A. Ostroumov in his book “Aquatic Organisms in Water Self-Purification” in 2008.

Zachary Ibrahim is one of the freshest voices in the theatre scene in Singapore. If you've ever watched him onstage, you'll know that he is captivating, versatile, and emotive in equal parts. No wonder then that he has acted in multiple productions with Pangdemonium, including Fat Pig, for which he was nominated for a Life Theatre Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2015. Away from the stage, he also lit up our screens in the 2017 movie Wonder Boy. But Zach wasn't always destined to be an actor; he didn't go to acting school, for one, and also spent time as a show presenter at the Night Safari. His journey in showbiz has been as entertaining as his actual work - and in this episode of Bold but Gold, he gives us some wonderful insight into his journey.

          North Korean leader open to third Trump summit: KCNA       Comment   Translate Page      

US President Donald Trump on Saturday backed a possible third summit with North Korea, after Kim Jong Un said he would be willing to meet his American counterpart if Washington comes to the table with the “right attitude”.

Kim said he would wait until the end of the year “for the US to make a courageous decision” to change its approach and smooth the path to another meeting, state media reported, after his most recent summit with Trump in Vietnam broke down without agreement.

Trump welcomed further talks between the pair, pointing to their “excellent relationship”.

Read: Trump floats idea of third North Korea summit

“I agree with Kim Jong Un of North Korea that our personal relationship remains very good, perhaps the term excellent would be even more accurate, and that a third Summit would be good in that we fully understand where we each stand,” he said on Twitter.

Washington has blamed the February deadlock on the North's demands for sanctions relief in return for limited nuclear disarmament, but Pyongyang said it had wanted only some of the measures eased.

And Trump has hinted that the punitive measures could eventually come to an end.

“North Korea has tremendous potential for extraordinary growth, economic success and riches under the leadership of Chairman Kim,” the American president said.

“I look forward to the day, which could be soon, when Nuclear Weapons and Sanctions can be removed, and then watching North Korea become one of the most successful nations of the World!” In a speech to Pyongyang's rubber-stamp parliament on Friday, Kim said the Hanoi meeting had made him question whether Washington is “genuinely interested” in improving its relations with Pyongyang.

“We are willing to give another try if the US offers to have a third summit with the right attitude and mutually acceptable terms,” he said, according to a report by North Korean state media outlet KCNA.

Kim added that his personal relationship with Trump remained strong, and they could “write letters to each other” whenever they wanted.

“We will wait with patience until the end of the year for the US to make a courageous decision,” Kim said.

Renewed sign of tension

Pyongyang has been careful not to criticise Trump personally, while attacking sanctions on North Korea as an attempt to “destroy modern civilisation and turn the society back in a medieval dark age”.

However, in a renewed sign of tension on the Korean peninsula, KCNA published a strongly-worded criticism of the South's deployment of the first two F-35A advanced stealth fighters.

They are part of an eventual fleet of 40 of the US jets Seoul plans by 2021.

The state news agency called the arrival of the warplanes a “serious provocation” and a setback to hopes of peace.

“The situation is a clear reminder of the South Korean authorities' diehard intent on military stand-off despite their outwardly hand-shake for reconciliation,” KCNA said. “The South Korean authorities should be aware of catastrophic consequences their thoughtless acts will bring, and exercise discretion.”

Trump and Kim held their first landmark summit in Singapore last June, where the pair signed a vaguely-worded agreement on the “denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.”

But the failure to reach agreement at their second summit in Hanoi has raised questions over the future of the accord.

On Thursday, at the start of a meeting with his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in at the Oval Office, Trump said he was mulling a third summit with Kim -- a move supported by Seoul.

Moon brokered the US-North Korea talks and has been pushing for the resumption of inter-Korean economic projects, but doing so would fall foul of international sanctions imposed on Pyongyang.

“Our government will do what we can in order to maintain the current momentum for dialogue,” Moon's office said in a statement.

The day before, Kim accused Seoul of acting as an “overstepping mediator” and said the South should “speak up” for Pyongyang's interests.

On Friday, KCNA reported Kim was re-elected as chairman of the State Affairs Commission, the North's most important decision-making body, to cheers and loud applause from the delegates.

Two Japanese generals, both executed for war crimes, both because of events which occurred in the Philippines during World War II. Gen Yamashita, also known as the "Tiger of Malaya," was executed by hanging. Lt Gen Honma*, also known as "The Beast of Bataan," was executed by firing squad. In both cases, an argument can be made that they were prosecuted for defeating Allied generals, not for war crimes.

There are many things which happen in war which can have the appearance, to someone unfamiliar with war, of a crime. Let's say for instance that a machine gun crew has kept an enemy platoon pinned down for what may seem like hours, but in reality may only be minutes. While keeping that enemy unit in place the machine gun crew has inflicted a number of casualties, both killed and wounded, upon that unit.

The machine gun crew notices that they are running low on ammunition, they also know that they have nowhere to run. So when the ammunition is gone, they surrender. Rather I should say that they attempt to surrender. Tentatively they stand up at their position, hands in the air. The enemy unit, frustrated, tired, and understandably angry, open fire on the machine gun crew, killing them all.**

War crime?

The commander of a large unit cannot know every single detail of what the units under his command are doing. If the unit is well-trained and well-led, there is still a remote possibility of those troops committing war crimes. But what is a war crime?

One of the better definitions I've seen is:
A war crime is a violation of the laws of war. The legal understanding of war crimes has been codified in several multilateral treaties, most notably the Geneva Conventions. More recently, the most comprehensive legal statement on war crimes was the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. (Source)
A commander is, by law and by practice, responsible for the conduct and actions of the forces under his/her command. But how high does that responsibility go? Who gets to decide what is criminal and what is not?

Of the many war crimes committed by the Germans in the European Theater of Operations, many Germans were tried, convicted, executed or imprisoned. Many were not. Albert Speer lived to write his memoirs, Werner von Braun lived to assist the United States in putting men on the moon. Josef "Sepp" Dietrich, commander of the Sixth Panzer Army in the Ardennes, a number of units of which committed atrocities against American POWs and Belgian civilians, did do time in prison. Joachim Peiper, commander of a Kampfgruppe in the Sixth Panzer Army, whose unit perpetrated the Malmedy Massacre, also did time in prison.

Some were executed for their crimes, some were not.

Units under the command of Generals Yamashita and Honma did indeed commit appalling crimes against Allied POWs and Filipino civilians. Both men were tried, convicted, and sentenced to death. Why them and not certain Nazi officers?

Why was Surgeon General Ishii Shirō, a Japanese army medical officer, microbiologist and director of Unit 731, a biological warfare unit of the Imperial Japanese Army involved in forced and frequently lethal human experimentation during the Second Sino-Japanese War not prosecuted and executed?
Arrested by the US occupation authorities at the end of World War II, Ishii and other Unit 731 leaders were to be thoroughly interrogated by the Soviet authorities. Instead, Ishii and his team managed to negotiate and receive immunity in 1946 from war-crimes prosecution before the Tokyo tribunal in exchange for their full disclosure of germ warfare data based on human experimentation. Although the Soviet authorities wished the prosecutions to take place, the United States objected after the reports of the investigating US microbiologists. Among these was Dr. Edwin Hill (Chief of Fort Detrick), whose report stated that the information was "absolutely invaluable", it "could never have been obtained in the United States because of scruples attached to experiments on humans", and "the information was obtained fairly cheaply". On 6 May 1947, Douglas MacArthur wrote to Washington that "additional data, possibly some statements from Ishii probably can be obtained by informing Japanese involved that information will be retained in intelligence channels and will not be employed as 'War Crimes' evidence." The deal was concluded in 1948. In this way Ishii was never prosecuted for any war crimes. (Source)
A war crime is a crime, regardless of the war criminal's usefulness to the victors. Otherwise, prosecution for war crimes is simply a vindictive exercise by the victorious power meant to punish the defeated. Consistency is important, otherwise the wrong message is sent.
Tomoyuki Yamashita (sic) was a Japanese general of the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. Yamashita led Japanese forces during the invasion of Malaya and Battle of Singapore, with his accomplishment of conquering Malaya and Singapore in 70 days earning him the sobriquet The Tiger of Malaya and led to the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, calling the ignominious fall of Singapore to Japan the "worst disaster" and "largest capitulation" in British military history. Yamashita was assigned to defend the Philippines from the advancing Allied forces later in the war, and while unable to stop the Allied advance, he was able to hold on to part of Luzon until after the formal Surrender of Japan in August 1945.

After the war, Yamashita was tried for war crimes committed by troops under his command during the Japanese defense of the occupied Philippines in 1944. In a controversial trial, Yamashita was found guilty of his troops' atrocities even though there was no evidence that he approved or even knew of them, and indeed many of the atrocities were committed by troops not actually under his command. Yamashita was sentenced to death and executed by hanging in 1946. The ruling against Yamashita – holding the commander responsible for subordinates' war crimes as long as the commander did not attempt to discover and stop them from occurring – came to be known as the Yamashita standard. (Source)

Masaharu Homma (sic) was a lieutenant general in the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. Homma commanded the Japanese 14th Army, which invaded the Philippines and perpetrated the Bataan Death March. After the war, Homma was convicted of war crimes relating to the actions of troops under his direct command and executed by firing squad on April 3, 1946.

...

Historian Kevin C Murphy argues that while it is not clear whether Homma ordered the atrocities that occurred during the march, Homma's lack of administrative expertise and his inability to adequately delegate authority and control his men helped to enable the atrocities. After American–Filipino forces surrendered the Bataan Peninsula, Homma turned the logistics of handling the estimated 25,000 prisoners to Major-General Yoshitake Kawane (sic). Homma publicly stated that the POWs would be treated fairly. A plan was formulated, approved by Homma, to transport and march the prisoners to Camp O'Donnell. However, the plan was severely flawed, as the American and Filipino POWs were starving, were weak with malaria, and numbered not 25,000 but 76,000 men, far more than any Japanese plan had anticipated.

Rugby player evades a tackle

The Sevens World Series continues its brief jaunt around Asia this weekend with the next stop o the tour being Singapore.

The World Sevens Series heads for Singapore this week and the tiny South-East Asian country is set for two days of pulsating and crucial sevens action. There are only three rounds remaining in this year's series and things are extremely tight at the top of the standings with only seven points separating current log toppers, the United States, and the second-placed Fijians, who bagged their fifth successive Hong Kong title last weekend.

Contenders

Fiji
Singapore 2018 Finish: Champions

The Fijians were in scintillating form last weekend topping a group that featured New Zealand, Australia and Kenya before beating Argentina, the United States and then finally France to claim their fifth successive Hong Kong title.

While don't boast as successful a record in Singapore as they Hong Kong, they still are the joint most successful team at the event having won two of the seven events held in the country. The most recent of these victories came last year where they beat Australia 28-22 in the final.

United States
Singapore Finish 2018: Ninth

The'States have been on something of a lean streak since their home tournament victory finishing fourth in Vancouver and following that up with a fifth-place finish at last week's Hong Kong Sevens. While these aren't the worst of finishes, the problem for the USA is that the Fijians have won the last two events and are now breathing down their necks on the Series log.

Singapore hasn't been kind to the Americans over the years and they are yet to win a tournament in the country. They did manage to finish the 2017 edition of the tournament as runners-up, however, and another runners-up result would put them in a handy position headed into the final two rounds, especially if the Fijians finish below them in Singapore.

New ZealandSingapore 2018 Finish: Fifth

The New Zealander's are the joint most successful side in Singapore having won two tournaments here just like their Fijian counterparts. They did struggle at the event last season though and only managed a fifth-place finish.

They currently lie third on the Series standings and will need to win at least two more tournaments if they are to challenge the Americans and Fijians for the Series title.

 Like the United States, New Zealand have struggled for form since departing Las Vegas with the men from the 'land of the long white cloud' finishing sixth in Vancouver and seventh in Hong Kong. They do have the talent to bounce back in Singapore, however.

Dark Horse
France
2018 Singapore Finish: 15th

While the French have a rather poor recent record in Singapore, this tournament does provide shock winners on a regular basis with Canada and Kenya winning two of the last three events staged in the country.

Le Blue have been in fine form of late as well, finishing the previous two legs of this season's circuit in second-place.

With a huge price tag on their heads for a tournament win, it may well be worth investing a very small stake in this French outfit.

Verdict: Fiji
A win here could well see the Islanders move above the USA on the series standings with only two legs of the 2018/19 season remaining. This is the only motivating factor Gareth Barber's men will need this weekend.

          Talks Between Trump And Kim Jong Un Resume As Summit Enters Final Day       Comment   Translate Page      
Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST: On the other side of the world, President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are set to begin talks this hour in Hanoi, Vietnam. The leaders exchanged compliments after a dinner together Wednesday night. Now they will get down to details exploring what steps North Korea might be willing to take to denuclearize and what the United States might be willing to offer in return. In Hanoi following all of it for us is NPR's Anthony Kuhn. Hi there, Anthony. ANTHONY KUHN, BYLINE: Hey, Mary Louise. KELLY: Hey. So obviously a lot of anticipation for this moment. Is - what exactly is happening at this hour? KUHN: The talks are underway. They got started around 9 a.m. this morning. The visuals are very much like the first Singapore summit in June. The two leaders were seated around a table in front of a backdrop of flags. President Trump stated that he is not in a rush for results, as he said before, and that he is primarily
          What To Expect From North Korea At The Next Trump-Kim Summit      Comment   Translate Page      
With just days to go before his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, President Trump seems to have tried to lower public expectations for the meeting set for Feb. 27 to 28 in Hanoi, Vietnam. "I'm in no rush for speed. We just don't want testing," Trump remarked on Friday , suggesting that he might not insist North Korea abandon its nuclear weapons, as long as it stops testing them. North Korea appears to have imposed a moratorium on its testing of missiles and nuclear bombs since late 2017, but experts suspect it continues working on these programs in secret. Trump and Kim made vague, aspirational commitments to denuclearization and peace on the Korean Peninsula at their Singapore summit in June 2018. Now there are rising expectations for the second summit to "include concrete, detailed, actual execution plans," says Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul, South Korea. What sort of deliverables North Korea is prepared to bring to the
          North Korea's Media Tout Trump Concessions You Won't Find In The Joint Statement      Comment   Translate Page      
North Korean state media have reported that President Trump made a raft of concessions to Kim Jong Un that were not stated in the two countries' joint statement, following a first-ever meeting of the leaders in Singapore. While the U.S. has yet to confirm the contents of the reports, they suggest that the two leaders reached more verbal agreements than they put on paper, and made public. The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported that Kim and Trump agreed that "it is important to abide by the principle of step-by-step and simultaneous action in achieving peace, stability and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula." That would go against what the Trump administration has said so far. Last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the House Foreign Affairs Committee that "the model that we have laid forth is a rapid denuclearization, total and complete, that won't be extended over time." The administration's argument is that the incremental approach used by past administrations

To see more, visit STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: In his letter canceling a summit with North Korea's leader a few days ago, President Trump included the phrase, if you change your mind having to do with this most important summit. Well, since then, there's been a lot of diplomatic activity involving the United States and North Korea. U.S. and North Korean teams are meeting in Singapore and at the border village between the two Korean - the two Koreas. And now there's news that a senior North Korean leader, Kim Yong Chol, is on his way to the United States. He's believed to be in Beijing heading on to New York City. We're joined now by NPR White House correspondent Scott Horsley, who's in Washington, and also NPR's Anthony Kuhn, who's in Beijing. Hey there, gentlemen. SCOTT HORSLEY, BYLINE: Good morning. ANTHONY KUHN, BYLINE: Hey, Steve. INSKEEP: And Scott, let's start with you. This news comes from the president. What's he say? HORSLEY: He confirmed in a tweet that Kim Yong

          Kim open to another summit with Trump, with conditions      Comment   Translate Page      
PYONGYANG, North Korea – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said he is open to a third summit with President Donald Trump, but set the year's end as a deadline for Washington to offer mutually acceptable terms for an agreement to salvage the high-stakes nuclear diplomacy, the North's state-run media said Saturday.

Kim made the comments during a speech Friday at a session of North Korea's rubber stamp parliament, which made a slew of personnel changes that bolstered his diplomatic lineup amid stalemated negotiations with the United States. His speech came hours after Trump and visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in met in Washington and agreed on the importance of nuclear talks with North Korea.

"We of course place importance on resolving problems through dialogue and negotiations. But U.S.-style dialogue of unilaterally pushing its demands doesn't fit us, and we have no interest in it," Kim said during the speech.

According to the Korean Central News Agency, or KCNA, Kim blamed the collapse of his summit with Trump in February on what he described as unilateral demands by the United States, which he said raised questions over whether Washington has genuine willingness to improve relations. But Kim said his personal relationship with Trump remains good and that they could exchange letters at "any time."

Trump responded to the remarks by saying he agreed with Kim about their relationship, and also expressed a desire for another summit.

"I agree with Kim Jong Un of North Korea that our personal relationship remains very good, perhaps the term excellent would be even more accurate, and that a third Summit would be good in that we fully understand where we each stand," Trump wrote on Twitter.

"North Korea has tremendous potential for ... extraordinary growth, economic success and riches under the leadership of Chairman Kim. I look forward to the day, which could be soon, when Nuclear Weapons and Sanctions can be removed, and then watching North Korea become one of the most successful nations of the World!" he tweeted.

In his speech, Kim repeated earlier claims that North Korea's crippled economy would persevere through heavy international sanctions imposed over its nuclear weapons program and that he wouldn't "obsess over summitry with the United States out of thirst for sanctions relief."

The United States has said the summit in Vietnam broke down because of the North's excessive demands for sanctions relief in return for limited disarmament measures. In their first summit last June in Singapore, Trump and Kim issued a vague statement calling for a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula without describing when or how it would occur.

Kim said the United States has been refusing to withdraw what the North perceives as "hostile policies" while sticking to "mistaken judgment that we would succumb to maximum pressure." He said the North would not compromise on the "fundamental interests of our country and people, even by a speck," and blamed the United States for arriving in Hanoi with "completely unrealizable plans."

"If the United States approaches us with the right manner and offers to hold a third North Korea-U.S. leaders' summit on the condition of finding solutions we could mutually accept, then we do have a willingness to give it one more try," Kim added. "We will wait with patience until the end of the year for the United States to come up with a courageous decision. But it will clearly be difficult for a good opportunity like last time to come up."

Kim also during the speech made a nationalistic call for South Korea to support the North's positions more strongly and criticized Seoul for acting like an "overstepping mediator" between Washington and Pyongyang. Kim held three summits last year with Moon, who lobbied hard to revive the nuclear talks between the United States and North Korea. Following the collapse of the Trump-Kim summit, the North had been urging the South to break away from Washington and proceed with inter-Korean economic projects that are currently held back by U.S.-led sanctions against the North.

"The South should not act as an 'overstepping mediator' or a 'facilitator' and should rather get its mind straight as a member of the (Korean) nation and boldly speak up for the interest of the nation," Kim said.

When asked about Kim's comments, South Korea's presidential office said Seoul is committed toward keeping the atmosphere of dialogue alive and helping negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang resume at an early date.

On Friday, KCNA reported that Kim was reelected as chairman of the State Affairs Commission, the nation's most important decision-making body, during a session of the Supreme People's Assembly that praised his "outstanding ideological and theoretical wisdom and experienced and seasoned leadership."

Experts say the new appointments may be a sign of Kim's desire to keep recent months of up-and-down nuclear diplomacy alive rather than returning to the threats and weapons tests that characterized 2017, when many feared war on the Korean Peninsula.

But the lack of substantial disarmament commitments from the North and the deepening impasse in nuclear negotiations have fueled doubts over whether Kim would ever voluntarily relinquish an arsenal he may see as his strongest guarantee of survival.

Some experts say it's becoming clear the North intends to turn the talks with the United States into a bilateral arms reduction negotiation between two nuclear states, rather than a unilateral process of surrendering its arsenal.

Kim has signed vague statements calling for the "complete denuclearization" of the peninsula in his meetings with Trump and Moon. But North Korea for decades has been pushing a concept of denuclearization that bears no resemblance to the American definition, with Pyongyang vowing to pursue nuclear development until the United States removes its troops and the nuclear umbrella defending South Korea and Japan.

          The white paper on online harms is a global first. It has never been more needed | John Naughton      Comment   Translate Page      

The tech industry may rail against the DCMS’s document but it’s high time they were brought to book

On Monday last week, the government published its long-awaited white paper on online harms. It was launched at the British Library by the two cabinet ministers responsible for it – Jeremy Wright of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the home secretary, Sajid Javid. Wright was calm, modest and workmanlike in his introduction. Javid was, well, more macho. The social media companies had had their chances to put their houses in order. “They failed,” he declared. “I won’t let them fail again.” One couldn’t help feeling that he had one eye on the forthcoming hustings for the Tory leadership.

Nevertheless, this white paper is a significant document. It marks the first time that the government of a major country has decided to regulate the companies that now dominate the online world. Other countries (Singapore, Australia and Germany to name just three) have already had a go, but their efforts have been partial, reactive and sometimes half-arsed. The UK white paper tries to address the problem at a broader level.

technology reviewCompiled annually by the esteemed publication’s editors, the record acknowledges firms globally with essentially the most progressive technology and efficient business models. It additionally contains some enterprise analysis for many who are concerned with technology futures and stocks. If it had growth when the forecast was made, then there’s probably little uncertainty about its success and thus it should not be considered a missed know-how by Expertise Evaluation. Reporters for Technology Overview conduct regular interviews with the most effective scientific minds in their fields, and the TR35, an annual function, profiles the thirty-five top modern thinkers in the world underneath the age of thirty-five. The print magazine features smart paintings, vibrant pictures, and a familiar taste for minimalism.

The full listing of search phrases is proven in Appendix A in S1 File These phrases had been present in Know-how Review’s one-page descriptions and benefited from the author’s knowledge of technologies. This paper’s evaluation of forecasts made by MIT’s Technology Evaluate gives a uncommon assessment and thus a way to encourage accountability. To see if we succeeded, we measured person engagement — specifically page views per visit and e mail signal ups — and magazine subscriptions. For instance, Expertise Evaluate chose mind-machine interface, digital rights management and biometrics in 2001 and these applied sciences had been researched for more than 30 years earlier than the predications had been made in 2001.

It first shows that few of the breakthrough applied sciences predicted by MIT’s Technology Evaluation between 2001 and 2005 at the moment have giant markets.

          Shaffer: A New Chinese Economic Law Order?      Comment   Translate Page      
Gregory Shaffer (Univ. of California, Irvine - Law) & Henry S. Gao (Singapore Management Univ. - Law) have posted A New Chinese Economic Law Order? Here's the abstract:
China is incrementally developing a new, decentralized model of trade governance through a web of finance, trade, and investment initiatives involving memorandum of understandings, contracts, and trade and investment treaties. In this way, China could create a vast, Sino-centric, regional order in which the Chinese state plays a nodal role. This model mirrors China’s internal development strategy. But now Chinese state-owned and private enterprises are internationalized and integrated within Sino-centric global production chains. It is a hub and spokes model, with China at the hub. In this paper, we first examine China’s export of its infrastructure-based development model (Part A) before turning to its creation of a complementary web of free trade and investment agreements (Part B), and an indigenous innovation policy (Part C). The paper theorizes and empirically traces how this forms part of the broader evolving ecology of transnational trade legal orders.

இணையப் பொய்யுரைக்கு எதிரான மசோதா குறித்து வழக்கறிஞர் சங்கம் கருத்துக்கூறாமல் இருப்பதைக் குறைகூறும் இணைய விமர்சனங்களுக்கு அந்தச் சங்கம் பதிலளித்திருக்கிறது.

“வழக்கமாக நாங்கள் இத்தகைய கலந்துரையாடல்களை பொதுப்படையாக வெளியிடமாட்டோம். இது தொடர்பான செயல்முறை மிகவும் ரகசியமானது,” என்று திரு விஜயேந்திரன் தெரிவித்தார்.

இந்த மசோதா குறித்து வழக்கறிஞர் சங்கம் எதுவுமே சொல்லவில்லை என்று ‘த ஆன்லைன் சிட்டிசன்’ தளம் கடந்த வாரம் தான் வெளியிட்ட தலையங்கக் கட்டுரையில் கூறியது. சங்கத்தின் மெளனம் சம்மதத்திற்கான அறிகுறியா என்றும் அக்கட்டுரை கேள்வி எழுப்பியது.

இந்தக் குற்றங்களுக்காக 29 வயது ஜீவன் அர்ஜுனுக்கு (படம்) நேற்று மூன்று வாரச் சிறை, $5,000 அபராதம் விதிக்கப்பட்டது. 
கடந்த நவம்பரில் லிட்டில் இந்தியாவில் இருந்த  தீபாவளிச் சந்தையில் அடையாளம் தெரியாத ஒரு விற்பனையாளரிடமிருந்து ஜீவன் பலவிதமான வாணவெடி களை வாங்கினார்.

ஈசூனில் கடந்த நவம்பர் வாணங்களைச் சட்டவிரோதமாக வெடிக்கச் செய்த ஆடவர் போலிசாரிடம் பொய்யுரைத்ததுடன் விசாரணையின்போது மற்றொருவரை இந்த விவகாரத்தில் சம்பந்தப்படுத்த முயன்றார். ஜீவன் அர்ஜுன் என்ற அந்த ஆடவருக்கு மூன்று வாரச் சிறைத்தண்டனையுடன் 5,000 வெள்ளி அபராதம் விதிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. வாணங்களை சட்டவிரோதமாக வெடிக்கச் செய்ததற்காகவும் போலிசாருக்குப் பொய்யான தகவலைக் கொடுத்ததற்காகவும் அவருக்கு அந்தத் தண்டனை விதிக்கப்பட்டது.

கடந்தாண்டு நவம்பரில் தீபாவளிச் சந்தைக்குச் சென்றிருந்த 29 வயது ரசாயன ஆய்வாளர் ஜீவன் , அடையாளம் தெரியாத விற்பனையாளர் ஒருவரிடம் வாணங்களை வாங்கியதாக நீதிமன்றத்தில் தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டது.

வாணங்களை வாங்கியபின் ஜீவன், புளோக் 513ஏ ஈசூன் ஸ்திரீட் 51க்கு அருகிலுள்ள விளையாட்டுக் கூடத்தில் காத்திருந்த தனது குடும்பத்தாரையும் நண்பர்களையும் சந்தித்தார். நவம்பர் 6ஆம் தேதி அதிகாலை சுமார் 3.30 மணிக்கு ஜீவன் அவர்கள் அனைவரையும் அருகில் இருந்த ஒரு திடலுக்கு அழைத்து வாணங்களை வெடிக்கச் செய்தார்.

சாட்சியங்களில் குறிப்பிட்டுள்ள விவரங்களின்படி, வாண வேடிக்கை வெடிக்கும் சத்தத்தைச் சுற்றியிருந்த வீடமைப்பு வளர்ச்சிக் கழக புளோக்குகளில் இருந்தவர்களால் கேட்க முடிந்ததாக அரசாங்க வழக்கறிஞர் ஜீன் கோ தெரிவித்தார். அந்த வாணவேடிக்கை கிட்டத்தட்ட ஐந்து நிமிடங்களுக்கு நீடித்தது.

வாணங்களைத் தருவித்தது 32 வயது மாதவன் மைக்கில் டக்ளஸ் என்று ஜீவன் போலிஸ் அதிகாரிகளிடம் பொய்யுரைத்தார். வாணங்களை வெடிக்கச் செய்தது ஜீவன்தான் என்ற தகவலை மாதவன் போலிசாரிடம் கூறியதால் ஜீவன் அவர் மீது ஆத்திரமடைந்து அவ்வாறு பொய்யுரைத்ததாக வழக்கறிஞர் கோ தெரிவத்தார்.

வாணங்களை வெடிக்கச் செய்வதால் கடுமையான காயங்களும் தீச்சம்பவங்களும் ஏற்படும் அபாயம் உள்ளதாக மாவட்ட நீதிபதி மார்வின் பே கூறினார். 


          பயங்கரவாதத்திற்கு எதிரான பதில் நடவடிக்கைகள் வலுவாக்கம்       Comment   Translate Page      

பயங்கரவாதத்திற்கு எதிராக சிங்கப்பூர் எடுத்துவரும் பதில் நடவடிக்கைகளை வலுப்படுத்தும் நோக்கில், அதிக மக்கள் நடமாட்டம் உள்ள இடங்களில் விரைவாக நடவடிக்கை எடுக்கக்கூடிய போலிஸ் குழுக்கள் பணியில் அமர்த்தப்படுவர்.  ஆர்ச்சர்ட் ரோடு, மரினா பே போன்ற பிரபலமான இடங்களில் பண்டிகை காலங்களில் சம்பவ இடத்திலேயே சம்பவங்களைக் கையாளும் குழுவின் (In-Situ Reaction Team) கண்காணிப்பு நடவடிக்கைகள் அதிகரிக்கப்படும். 2017 டிசம்பர் மாதத்தில் இந்தக் குழு முதன்முதலாகப் பணியில் அமர்த்தப்பட்டது.

இந்த முடிவை வியாழக்கிழமை அறிவித்த சட்ட, உள்துறை அமைச்சர் கா. சண்முகம், பயங்கரவாதத்தைத் தடுக்கும் ஆற்றலுக்கான தேவையை வலியுறுத்தினார். பயங்கரவாதத் தாக்குதல்கள் எப்போது வேண்டுமானாலும், எங்கு வேண்டுமானாலும் நிகழலாம் என்பதற்கு உதாரணமாகக் கடந்த மாதம் நடந்த கிறைஸ்ட்சர்ச் துப்பாக்கிச்சூட்டைத் திரு சண்முகம் சுட்டினார். 

“நியூசிலாந்தில் இது நடந்தால் எங்கு வேண்டுமானாலும் இது நடக்கலாம். தாக்குதல் நிகழும் என்று நீங்கள் எதிர்பார்த்திராத இடங்களில் நியூசிலாந்தும் ஒன்று,” என்றார் அமைச்சர் சண்முகம்.

சிங்கப்பூர் தொழில்நுட்ப, வடிவமைப்புப் பல்கலைக்கழகத்தில் நடந்த போலிஸ் படையின் வருடாந்திர வேலைத்திட்ட மாநாட்டில் உரையாற்றியபோது திரு சண்முகம் இவ்வாறு கூறினார். தொழில்நுட்பப் பயன்பாட்டின் மூலம் போலிஸ் படை எப்படி அறிவார்ந்த படையாகப் பரிணமித்து வருகிறது என்பதை எடுத்துக்காட்டுவது இந்த மாநாட்டின் நோக்கம். ஜார்விஸ் எனப்படும் தேடுதல் தளம், மாநாட்டில் காட்சிக்கு வைக்கப்பட்ட தொழில்நுட்பங்களில் ஒன்று. விசாரணை அதிகாரிகள் சிங்கப்பூர் போலிஸ் படையின் தரவுத்தளங்களிலிருந்து தங்களுக்குத் தேவைப்படும் தகவல்களை ஒரு முறை தேடும்போது பெற்றுக்கொள்ள ஜார்விஸ் உதவுகிறது. இதனால் சுமார் 20 நிமிடங்களுக்கு நீடிக்கும் இந்தத் தேடல் பணி ஐந்து நிமிடங்களுக்குக் குறையும் என்று அந்த மாநாட்டின்போது தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டது.

நியூசிலாந்து மக்கள் சம்பவத்திற்குப் பிறகு நடந்துகொண்ட விதம், அந்நாட்டின் பிரதமர் ஜெசிண்டா ஆர்டனின் தலைமைத்துவம் ஆகியவற்றையும் திரு சண்முகம் பாராட்டினார். நியூசிலாந்தைப் பார்த்து சிங்கப்பூர் கற்றுக்கொள்ளலாம் என்றும் அவர் கூறினார். தொழில்நுட்பக் கருவிகளின் மேம்பாடும் பயிற்சியும் பயங்கரவாதத் தாக்குதல்களுக்கு அதிகாரிகள் உரிய பதில் நடவடிக்கை எடுப்பதற்கான நேரத்தைக் குறைக்கும் என்று திரு சண்முகம் கூறினார். பயங்கரவாதத் தாக்குதல் நிகழ்ந்து முதல் சில நிமிடங்களில் எடுக்கப்படும் நடவடிக்கை ஆக முக்கியமானது என்றார் அவர். 

போலிசார் இங்குள்ள குற்றச்செயல்களைத் தொடர்ந்து கட்டுக்குள் வைத்திருந்தாலும் கவனத்திற்கான தேவை இன்னமும் இருப்பதாகத் திரு சண்முகம் தெரிவித்தார். அண்மையில் வன்முறை சம்பவங்கள், குறிப்பாக கத்திக்குத்துகள், பிரிட்டனில் பெருகி வருவதை அவர் சுட்டினார்.

“போலிசாரின் வளங்களைத் தொடர்ந்து அதிகரிப்பதிலும் சட்டங்களை நோக்கத்திற்குத் தகுந்தவாறு புதுப்பிப்பதிலும் கடப்பாடு உள்ளது. போலிசாரின் காரியங்களுக்கு நாங்கள் ஆதரவு அளிப்போம்,” என்றார் திரு சண்முகம்.

          ASEAN-Hàn Quốc tiếp tục thúc đẩy hợp tác nhiều mặt trong tương lai      Comment   Translate Page      

Ngày 12/4, Ủy ban Hợp tác chung ASEAN-Hàn Quốc (AKJCC) đã tiến hành phiên họp định kỳ lần thứ 6 tại trụ sở Ban Thư ký ASEAN tại thủ đô Jakarta của Indonesia.

Cuộc họp nhằm kiểm điểm tình hình hợp tác hai bên thời gian qua và thảo luận về các biện pháp tăng cường quan hệ song phương trong thời gian tới.

Tham dự cuộc họp có các Đại sứ, Đại diện thường trực tại ASEAN, Đại sứ Hàn Quốc tại ASEAN và Đại diện Ban Thư ký ASEAN.

Theo phóng viên TTXVN tại Jakarta, Đại sứ Trần Đức Bình, Trưởng Phái đoàn Thường trực Việt Nam tại ASEAN, cho biết hai bên đã ghi nhận những kết quả tích cực đạt được trong triển khai các hoạt động hợp tác ASEAN-Hàn Quốc trong thời gian qua trên các lĩnh vực chính trị-an ninh, kinh tế, thương mại, đầu tư, du lịch, đào tạo, văn hóa và giao lưu nhân dân.

Trong triển khai Kế hoạch Hành động ASEAN-Hàn Quốc 2016-2020, đến nay đã có 31/35 lĩnh vực được thực hiện. Trong các năm 2018-2019, có 27 lĩnh vực với 122 dòng hành động được triển khai hoặc chuẩn bị triển khai.

Trong lĩnh vực kinh tế, hiện nay Hàn Quốc tiếp tục là đối tác thương mại và nhà đầu tư trực tiếp lớn thứ năm của ASEAN. Theo số liệu tính đến cuối năm 2017, kim ngạch thương mại hai chiều ASEAN-Hàn Quốc đạt 152,5 tỷ USD.

Năm 2018, kim ngạch thương mại đạt hơn 160 tỷ USD và tổng vốn FDI vào ASEAN là 5,3 tỷ USD. Thông qua các khuôn khổ hợp tác như Hiệp định Thương mại tự do ASEAN-Hàn Quốc (AFFTA) và Kế hoạch hành động, hai bên đang phấn đấu đạt mục tiêu 200 tỷ USD giá trị tổng kim ngạch thương mại hai chiều vào năm 2020.

Hàn Quốc đánh giá cao vai trò và sự ủng hộ của ASEAN đối với tiến trình hòa bình và phi hạt nhân hóa Bán đảo Triều Tiên, đặc biệt là hai cuộc gặp thượng đỉnh Mỹ-Triều được tổ chức tại Singapore năm 2018 và Việt Nam hồi tháng Hai vừa qua.

ASEAN khẳng định ủng hộ những nỗ lực đối thoại liên Triều và phi hạt nhân hóa Bán đảo Triều Tiên bằng biện pháp hòa bình.

Cuộc họp cũng ghi nhận Trung tâm ASEAN-Hàn Quốc và Nhà Văn hóa ASEAN trong thời gian qua đã góp phần làm cầu nối thúc đẩy đầu tư, thương mại, giao lưu văn hóa và du lịch giữa các nước ASEAN với Hàn Quốc; đồng thời nhấn mạnh sự hỗ trợ hiệu quả của Hàn Quốc đối với các chương trình và dự án hợp tác hai bên thông qua Quỹ Hợp tác kinh tế ASEAN-Hàn Quốc (AKEC), hoan nghênh quyết định của Chính phủ Hàn Quốc tăng gấp đôi mức đóng đóng góp cho Quỹ AKEC năm 2019 lên 14 triệu USD.

          Meet Wellthy, the digital pill to India’s dreaded disease      Comment   Translate Page      
Meet Diabetes, a disease that fetched India the ignominy of World's Diabetes capital. The IDF (International Diabetes Federation) claimed that India accounted for 49% of global diabetes burden with a whopping 72 million cases in 2017.

Diabetes in 2017 became the world's seventh leading cause of death and estimates suggest that by 2025 Diabetes related deaths may only double.

Although numbers narrate a grim tale, research tells Diabetes and especially type-2 diabetes can be treated or controlled by altering diet, reducing usage of tobacco, and maintaining body weight. And, Wellthy therapeutics a medical startup has found its calling in coaxing users towards healthy habits to control Diabetes.

The app-makers reveal that usage of artificial intelligence and machine learning on top of indianized data-sets is a revolutionary practice. This practice has helped reduce blood glucose level among users. The app has also managed to coax users into spending more time on exercise. Dr Rajeev Chawla, President for the Research Society for Diabetes in India explains in a note, "There is a desperate need of innovative solutions capable of delivering personalized health interventions at scale.”

"Wellthy Therapeutics Digital therapeutics suite, designed in collaboration with RSSDI, has the potential to drastically transform the way patient-centric health interventions are delivered across millions of Indians to prevent or delay life threatening health complications arising from mismanagement of diabetes," he adds.

In a quick conversation with Sify.com, Dr Vinod Mattoo, Chief Scientific Officer at Wellthy, explains how the app operates, major findings from their research and the artificial layer behind the app.

Excerpts:

Sify: Tell us a bit about how the Wellthy app works?

Dr. Vinod Mattoo: Wellthy is a digital therapeutic coaching app. By having the patients’ attention, the app helps better manage digital health of the user. Basically, it reminds people things that they should do, they should consume, exercise patterns etc. Lifestyle diseases are not easy to overcome, especially Diabetes. In fact India is the Diabetes Capital of the World, and patients would require a lot of commitment and promise to overcome the disease. The coach does the part of digital intervention and nudges patients towards healthy diet, exercise regime, and medicines that their doctor prescribes.

Sify: Does the app prescribe medicines?

Dr. Mattoo: The app does not prescribe, but prompts the user towards the doctor's prescription. Sometimes, these prompts could be related to an injection that the user has skipped, or at times it could be engagement with some conversation related to awareness of diabetes.

This is a life coach that teaches people to control diabetes.

Our approach is patient-centric and we serve as the central point between a patient and doctor. The patient’s report goes directly to a doctor, and in fact one cannot start using the app without the prescription of a doctor.

Sify: What is the layer of artificial intelligence in this app?

Dr. Mattoo: The most interesting aspect is advice and coaching. That is where chatbots come into play. They explain diet, prescription and health related information in a friendly yet effective manner. The Coach can track how many calories are consumed. Sometimes, it also asks users to share photographs of their food and using that information we have managed to maintain a robust database of patient health.

For example, if a person is having chapatti, depending upon portion size and the approximate size in India the app counts the calories consumed. A major problem that we initially faced was determining the exact size of chapatti, and hence we asked users to put a driver’s license or a credit card next to the food to get the perspective and proper measurement.

Collecting this data has helped us understand what could be the exact calorific value of an Indian chapatti. We have recently added the category of fruits and are proud of this ever growing database.

Sify: What other elements have gone into making this app?

Dr. Mattoo: The template as the research factor is based on the American Society of Diabetes Educators. We discussed that with RSSDI (Research Society for Diabetes in India) and have indianized the central data points to a large extent. The database is locally relevant and includes many diet patterns.

Besides that, we have also been tracking patient outcomes and publishing it at several medical conferences. Ever since Abhishek Shah [CEO] started the enterprise in 2015, we have published 16 stacks to publications. This is a strong performance in terms of validation of what this technology provides.

Sify: What does your internal study of your users suggest about the usage of the app?

Dr. Mattoo: In our research of 102 respondents, we found a pattern among usage of our app and a decrease in blood sugar and increase in self-reported physical activity. The findings were presented at a Diabetes Conference held in Berlin.

We found that the most engaged patients reduced their fasting blood sugar readings by 21.4 mg/dL and cumulatively increased their exercise activity by 133 minutes during the study. Both observations were several times greater than the results for the least engaged cohort of patients.

These results are clinically significant and show that improved glycemic control and better patient self-management is possible by patients who engage with a digital therapeutic.

Sify: How unique is this app and do you have plans to launch more such apps?

Dr. Mattoo: There have been several digital intervention related use-cases. The US FDA was one among the first to recognize importance of digital and accordingly implement such an app. Then, there were insulin intervention measures. There has been a similar program in Singapore which later branched across Asia. For the record, Iran has a digital service for treating Alzheimer.

Besides Diabetes, we are also looking at a coach for hypertension, respiratory, cardiac and cardio metabolic related interventions. Besides, we have entered into a strategic partnership with Cipla to aid their offerings in Diabetes. With this, we should be able to combine, demonstrate and improve patient outcomes even further.

          President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un willing to meet for third summit      Comment   Translate Page      

ABC News(WASHINGTON) -- President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday that he is open to a third summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, citing their “excellent” personal relationship and understanding of “where we each stand.”

“I agree with Kim Jong Un of North Korea that our personal relationship remains very good, perhaps the term excellent would be even more accurate, and that a third Summit would be good in that we fully understand where we each stand,” Trump tweeted before heading to Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, for the day.

“North Korea has tremendous potential for… extraordinary growth, economic success and riches under the leadership of Chairman Kim,” Trump added. "I look forward to the day, which could be soon, when Nuclear Weapons and Sanctions can be removed, and then watching North Korea become one of the most successful nations of the World!”

In a speech reported by North Korea’s state-run media, the Korean Central News Agency, Kim announced that he is willing to meet with Trump for a third summit and praised the personal relationship he has developed with Trump.

“As President Trump keeps saying, the personal ties between me and him are not hostile like the relations between the two countries and we still maintain good relations, as to be able to exchange letters asking about health anytime if we want,” Kim said.

But he added that before any meeting, the United States must change its policies toward North Korea and lift sanctions by the end of the year.

But he added that before any meeting, the United States must change its policies toward North Korea and lift sanctions by the end of the year.

 “We will wait for a bold decision from the U.S. with patience till the end of this year but I think it will definitely be difficult to get such a good opportunity as the previous summit,” Kim said.

Trump and Kim first met in June 2018 in Singapore, and their negotiations and correspondence via letters continued until their second summt in Hanoi, Vietnam, in February. But the talks broke down and the summit was unexpectedly cut short because North Korea wanted the United States to lift all sanctions, according to Trump. He has not said whether or not he has remained in contact with Kim since Hanoi.

At the White House on Friday, Trump met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in to discuss a path forward with North Korea and the potential for a smaller nuclear disarmament deal.

“There are various smaller deals that could happen,” Trump said “You could work out step-by-step pieces, but at this moment we’re talking about the big deal. The big deal is we have to get rid of nuclear weapons.”

          Vụ án Trịnh Vĩnh Bình: Phản ứng của Bộ Tư Pháp có hợp lý?      Comment   Translate Page

Mắt xích ít bí mật nhất là ai?

Tòa trọng tài quốc tế Paris - nơi xử vụ án doanh nhân người Hà Lan gốc Việt Nam, ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình, là một tòa dân sự. Có nghĩa là việc công khai hay bảo đảm bí mật của phán quyết là do thỏa thuận của các đương sự. Khi một bên đương sự nhận thấy mình có thể thua, bên đương sự ấy ra lời đề nghị tất cả các bên phải bảo đảm bí mật của phán quyết. Dĩ nhiên, là phải chấp nhận trả thêm một số tiền cho đương sự khác.

Việc giữ bí mật là việc của các bên, còn việc săn tin là việc của các nhà báo. Và các nhà báo của Đài phát thanh quốc tế Hoa Kỳ đã làm rất tốt công việc săn tin và điều tra của họ. Một nhà báo giỏi, một cơ quan báo chí có uy tín là phá tan các bí mật.

Chính phủ Việt Nam không có chứng cứ về việc bên nào, ai đã cung cấp thông tin phán quyết cho VOA. Việc VOA loan tin phán quyết rõ ràng là một thất bại lớn đối với chính phủ Việt Nam, nhưng là một thành công lớn của VOA, đến độ VOA gắn bảng Tin Độc Quyền trước bản tin. Chính phủ Việt Nam nên kiện VOA ra một tòa quốc tế nào đó nếu tự tin chiến thắng. Ra khơi xa bôn ba bể lớn, hội nhập với luật pháp minh bạch và công tâm, tiến bộ của thế giới là việc mà Chính phủ Việt Nam nên làm. Nhưng, nếu khởi kiện, chính phủ Việt Nam nên nhớ rằng, các nhà báo, các tòa báo quốc tế sẽ không bao giờ công khai nguồn tin đã cung cấp thông tin cho họ. Và luật pháp quốc tế bảo đảm cho họ quyền ấy. Nó khác với luật pháp Việt Nam ở chỗ, ở Việt Nam Viện trưởng Viện Kiểm sát nhân dân từ cấp tỉnh trở lên có quyền yêu cầu nhà báo, cơ quan báo chí cung khai nguồn tin đã cung cấp thông tin.

Xung quanh vụ án Trịnh Vĩnh Bình, hai nhà báo Nguyễn Công Khế và Hoàng Hải Vân từng làm việc ở báo Thanh Niên trên FB của mình đều viết rằng, chính các thế lực ở tỉnh Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu đã gây nên án oan này. Điều này hoàn toàn không đúng, điều này là vu khống đối với đa phần quan chức tỉnh Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu vào thời điểm vụ án diễn ra.

Vào thời điểm diễn ra vụ án Trịnh Vĩnh Bình, rất nhiều quan chức tỉnh Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu cực lực phản đối việc bắt giữ ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình, đặc biệt là Chủ tịch UNND tỉnh Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu, ông Nguyễn Trọng Minh. Chẳng lẽ, ông Nguyễn Trọng Minh, đường đường là chủ tịch tỉnh lại thua ông Ngô Chí Đan, một sĩ quan cấp trưởng phòng ở Công an tỉnh BR-VT? Trong vụ án này, ông Nguyễn Trọng Minh còn bị gán ghép nhận hối lộ của ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình, dĩ nhiên là hoàn toàn không có chứng cứ. Chỉ riêng việc phó thủ tướng thường trực, phó chủ tịch nước, một bộ trưởng can ngăn đừng để vụ án xảy ra (nhưng không được) cũng đã đủ sức phản bác quan điểm của hai nhà báo Nguyễn Công Khế và Hoàng Hải Vân. Chẳng lẽ nào Phó chủ tịch nước, phó thủ tướng thường trực, bộ trưởng yêu cầu đình chỉ vụ án mà lãnh đạo BR-VT không nghe?

Hệ thống công an, viện kiểm sát, tòa án ở tỉnh Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu, theo các quan chức tỉnh BR-VT thời ấy, đã bị một thế lực cực kỳ bí mật thúc ép trong vụ Trịnh Vĩnh Bình. Bản thân họ không muốn. Một nhân vật tên là T, thường được các quan chức BR-VT gọi là T "thọt" là mắt xích ít bí ẩn nhất trong một hệ thống đầy bí ẩn.

Vậy nên nhìn về hướng nào để xác định lực lượng bí ẩn? Đó chính là thế lực không chỉ thực hiện nhiệm vụ của mình mà còn thực hiện nghiệp vụ an ninh của công an.

TIỀN TỪ NGUỒN NÀO TRẢ CHO ÔNG TRỊNH VĨNH BÌNH

Sau sự phát tán thông tin về vụ kiện ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình, mà theo đó, số tiền mà chính phủ Việt Nam bị thiệt hại trong vụ kiện lên đến 45 triệu USD. Nhiều người đã ta thán rằng mình phải đưa vai gánh chịu một phần thiệt hại này cho dù mình không có liên quan và cũng chẳng làm gì hại đến ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình. Rất nhanh nhẩu, công chúng đã chia đều số tiền mà chính phủ thua kiện cho từng đầu dân, từ ông cụ chân đi run lẩy bẩy cho đến cháu bé mới oe oe chào đời chưa từng biết đến mặt ngang mày dọc tờ VND, đều phải gánh chịu ngang nhau số tiền là 11.500 đồng/dân.

Thật ra, lời ta thán này sai mà lại đúng!

SAI:

Sai vì lẽ, theo nguyên tắc chung thì công chức phải chịu trách nhiệm trước pháp luật về quyết định của mình. Theo đó, dù nhân danh công sở hay nhân danh quốc gia, nhưng nếu họ thực hiện hành vi trái pháp luật gây nên sự tổn thất cho công chúng, phát sinh trách nhiệm bồi thường thì họ phải gánh chịu phần bồi thường ấy.

Thế nhưng, như thông lệ quốc tế, thì luật pháp nước ta cũng quy định sự bồi thường thiệt hại sẽ được công sở đứng ra đảm nhận chi trả cho người bị thiệt hại bằng nguồn tài chính từ công quỹ. Sau đó, buộc công chức có lỗi bồi hoàn lại.

Như trong trường hợp vụ ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình chẳng hạn. Tuy sự thiệt hại vật chất, tinh thần của ông là do công chức thuộc các cơ quan tố tụng, thi hành án, UBND tỉnh ở tỉnh Bà Rịa -Vũng Tàu và Tòa phúc thẩm TANDTC tại TP.HCM gây nên. Nhưng bằng bản án của cơ quan tài phán quốc tế thì chính phủ đã phải đứng ra gánh lấy trách nhiệm bồi thường vì lẽ đã không bảo đảm quyền lợi hợp pháp của ông ấy theo hiệp ước bảo hộ thương mại giữa hai chính phủ Hà Lan-VN.

Sau đó, việc truy trách nhiệm và phân định lỗi của các công chức của các cơ quan kể trên sẽ phải được tiến hành. Nếu tính chất, mức độ nghiêm trọng thì có thể phải khởi tố hình sự vụ án. Số tiền 45 triệu USD mà chính phủ VN phải trả không chỉ là tiền, mà còn bao gồm cả uy tín quốc gia thì quá thừa để gọi là cực kỳ nghiêm trọng. Theo đó, khi xử lý trách nhiệm hình sự, sẽ phải xử lý cả trách nhiệm bồi hoàn khoản tiền mà chính phủ đã ứng ra thi hành án chi trả cho ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình.

Điều đó cho thấy về lời ta thán rằng công chúng phải gánh chung với nhau về số nợ là sai về phương diện pháp lý. 90 triệu dân VN sẽ không phải mất một đồng bạc nào để góp trả cho khoản thi hành án ấy cả! Mà số tiền ấy phải do số cá nhân công chức thuộc các công sở hữu quan có trách nhiệm chi trả.

ĐÚNG:

Tuy vậy, xét về phương diện thực tế, lời ta thán của công chúng cũng không phải là không có cơ sở, nếu không nói rằng họ đúng.

Bởi lẽ, đã từng có nhiều vụ việc công sở phải đứng ra bồi thường thiệt hại cho người bị kết tội oan sai. Cũng theo đó, đã từng có công chức phải ngồi tù vì đã có hành vi trái pháp luật tác động vào những vụ việc oan sai như vậy. Nhưng điều đáng nói nhất là công chúng chưa từng nghe vụ nào có công chức phải móc hầu bao của mình để bồi hoàn lại cho công sở khoản bồi thường mà công sở đã ứng trả cho người bị thiệt hại.

Trách nhiệm của công chức, từ nguyên tắc do pháp luật quy định đến thực tiễn áp dụng vẫn còn khoảng cách xa diệu vợi và cứ thế, công chúng vốn vô can với những hành vi trái pháp luật của công chức nhưng vẫn cứ phải góp thuế để bồi thường cho những khoản thiệt hại không phải do lỗi của mình.

Suy cho cùng, điều đó cũng đáng khi mà phần đông công chúng xứ này vẫn vô tư chấp nhận những công chức tham lam, bất tài … ngồi trên đầu, cưỡi trên cổ của mình như bao nhiêu năm qua.

Riêng đối với ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình. Công lý đã mỉm cười với ông khi cơ quan tài phán quốc tế tuyên ông thắng kiện. Điều đó là tất nhiên khi ông đã chọn khởi kiện tại một nơi chỉ biết tôn trọng lẽ công bằng. Ông đã thắng trong vụ kiện đòi bồi thường với tư cách là người tự do. Nhưng trớ trêu, tại quê hương ông, thì luật pháp vẫn xem ông là tội phạm nợ hình phạt 11 năm tù giam, mà trong đó, ông chỉ mới thụ án 18 tháng nếu như bản án hình sự đã có hiệu lực pháp luật vẫn chưa bị hủy.

Có vẻ như món nợ 11.500 đồng/dân góp trả cho ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình khó tránh khỏi. Nhưng xem ra, tuy phàn nàn, nhưng công chúng lại rất sẵn sàng hả hê cất lời chúc mừng cho ông ấy.

Tôi đoán, bạn biết rõ lý do của sự hả hê ấy nhỉ)

Vào ngày 10 tháng 4 năm 2019, Hội đồng Trọng tài được thành lập theo Quy tắc Trọng tài UNCITRAL đã ban hành Phán quyết về Vụ kiện đầu tư của ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình đối với Chính phủ Việt Nam, mà theo đó ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình đã chiến thắng trong vụ kiện.

Đây là vụ kiện được mệnh danh là vụ kiện “thế kỷ” giữa triệu phú Trịnh Vĩnh Bình, công dân Hà Lan, với chính phủ Việt Nam.

Ông Bình kiện chính phủ Việt Nam đã vi phạm Hiệp định khuyến khích và bảo hộ đầu tư giữa Hà Lan và Việt Nam, cũng như bắt giam ông bất hợp pháp. Theo đơn kiện, ông đòi chính phủ Việt Nam phải trả tiền bồi thường là 1,25 tỷ đô la.

Trao đổi với Đài Á Châu Tự Do hôm 11/4, Ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình không muốn công bố cụ thể số tiền mà chính phủ Việt Nam sẽ phải trả ông là bao nhiêu và bao giờ sẽ phải thực hiện. Tuy nhiên bản tin của VOA vào ngày 11/4 trích phán quyết của tòa cho biết chính phủ Việt Nam phải trả cho ông Bình tổng cộng 37.581.596 đô la thiệt hại và gần 7,9 triệu đô la án phí. Trong số này có 10 triệu đô la tiền tổn thất về tinh thần.

Vào ngày12/4/2019, Bộ Tư pháp ra thông báo chính thức liên quan vụ kiện này. Bộ Tư pháp Việt Nam cho rằng, hiện nay, một số trang thông tin điện tử và mạng xã hội đưa tin, phản ánh không chính xác nội dung của Phán quyết cùng với những diễn giải, suy đoán chủ quan gây hiểu nhầm trong dư luận.

Trong thông cáo của mình, Bộ Tư pháp cũng cho biết, theo quy định của tố tụng trọng tài, các bên có trách nhiệm giữ bí mật Phán quyết.

Bộ Tư Pháp Việt Nam có ra một thông báo, rằng thông tin trên mạng xã hội liên quan vụ kiện của ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình chưa chính xác. Nhưng mà nói thì nói thế thôi, chứ nếu việc như chính ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình công bố ra thì phía Việt Nam cũng không cần phải thông báo như thế.

Tiến sĩ Hà Hoàng Hợp

Trao đổi với chúng tôi hôm 12/4, Tiến sĩ Hà Hoàng Hợp, một nhà quan sát độc lập làm việc tại Singapore nhận định:

“Bộ Tư pháp Việt Nam có ra một thông báo, rằng thông tin trên mạng xã hội liên quan vụ kiện của ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình chưa chính xác, và họ có nói thêm một số thông tin khác nữa như đảm bảo bí mật giữa các bên thêm gia vụ kiện, rồi các xu thế khác nhau. Nhưng mà nói thì nói thế thôi, chứ nếu việc như chính ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình công bố ra thì phía Việt Nam cũng không cần phải thông báo như thế”.

Sau thông cáo của Bộ Tư pháp, ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình vẫn khẳng định thông tin ông chiến thắng là đúng và cũng khẳng định rằng ông không cung cấp số tiền phải bồi thường cũng như giấy tờ liên quan đến phán quyết của tòa cho bất cứ ai.

Theo Tiến sĩ Hợp, Việt Nam đang trong quá trình hội nhập sâu rộng vào quốc tế về kinh tế, văn hóa, xã hội… trên một nền pháp lý hoàn thiện hơn, vì vậy, Việt Nam nên có một cách cởi mở, thân thiện, công bằng hơn, sẵn sàng tiếp nhận thông tin từ tất cả các phía, để làm sao Việt Nam là một đất nước hưởng lợi bởi đầu tư nước ngoài có một hình ảnh tích cực về đầu tư nước ngoài vào Việt Nam.

Còn theo Tiến sĩ kinh tế Phạm Chí Dũng, Chủ tịch Hội nhà báo Độc lập thì vụ kiện này đáng lý ra là chính phủ Việt Nam phải biết trước là họ thua, có lẽ là trước đây họ quá chủ quan, không đề phòng chuyện này, và cuối cùng ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình đã thắng. Theo ông, đây có thể nói đây là một tiền đề, khi Việt Nam ra quốc tế hay đi vào các vụ kiện quốc tế, thì khả năng rất lớn là chính phủ Việt Nam sẽ thua.

“Đó là bài học rất lớn đối với chính phủ Việt Nam, họ không thể hành xử ở quốc tế giống như ở trong nước được. Ở trong nước thì luôn luôn có những cái án bỏ túi, đặc biệt là những cái án chính trị xử lý những người đấu tranh dân chủ, bất đồng chính kiến, phản biện, bằng án bỏ túi. Nhưng mà ra quốc tế thì mọi chuyện phải bình đẳng, sòng phẳng, và không thể có chuyện Việt Nam đi cửa trong cửa ngoài, đi đêm, thỏa thuận ngầm… để có những bản án bỏ túi như vậy”.

Triệu phú Trịnh Vĩnh Bình từng đem 3 triệu đô la Mỹ về đầu tư ở Việt Nam vào cuối năm 1987. Tuy nhiên vào năm 1998, tỉnh Bà Rịa - Vũng Tàu bắt ông với cáo buộc hối lộ và vi phạm các quy định về quản lý - bảo vệ đất đai. Ông bị giam 18 tháng 20 ngày và 1 năm 6 tháng quản chế. Năm 1999, ông bị tuyên án tù 11 năm và bị tịch thu toàn bộ tài sản.

Năm 2000 ông trốn tù, vượt biên lần nữa trở lại Hà Lan. Năm 2003 ông kiện chính phủ Việt Nam tại một tòa án ở Thụy Điển. Để tránh vụ kiện này chính phủ Việt Nam đã ký một thỏa thuận với ông ở Singapore vào năm 2006, theo đó thì ông sẽ giữ bí mật thỏa thuận này, không kiện nữa, và đổi lại chính phủ Việt Nam phải bồi thường cho ông số tiền là 15 triệu đô la Mỹ, trả lại tất cả các tài sản đã bị tịch thu của ông. Nhưng ông nói với thông tín viên Tường An của đài RFA tại châu Âu rằng chính phủ Việt Nam đã không giữ lời hứa nên một lần nữa ông đã kiện chính phủ Việt Nam.

Trao đổi với chúng tôi hôm 12/4, Tiến sĩ Lê Đăng Doanh, nguyên Viện trưởng Viện Quản lý Kinh tế Trung ương nhận định:

“Tôi thấy đấy là một sự việc rất đáng tiếc. Những người khi đó xử lý vụ việc của ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình đã không tính đến, không tôn trọng các quy định pháp luật ở trong nước, cũng như các quy định pháp luật về đầu tư nước ngoài. Lúc bấy giờ, người ta coi ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình là người Việt Nam, một Việt Kiều quay trở về nước đầu tư hơn là một nhà đầu tư nước ngoài. Chính sự nhầm lẫn đó dẫn đến các quyết định không phù hợp dẫn đến các diễn biến và các hệ quả đáng tiếc. Tôi nghĩ đây là bài học đau xót và Việt Nam phải rút kinh nghiệm. Mặc dù báo chí trong nước có thể là không đăng nhưng tôi nghĩ các quan chức có liên quan nhà đầu tư nước ngoài, liên quan Việt Kiều cần xem xét kỹ, rút kinh nghiệm một cách nghiêm túc. Để tránh không lập lại các sai sót như đã diễn ra”.

Tiến sĩ Hà Hoàng Hợp cho rằng, vụ việc ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình xảy ra vào khoảng thời gian Việt Nam còn mới mở cửa, hệ thống văn bản pháp luật còn kém:

“Chính phủ chỉ có một văn bản nhỏ, một văn bản mập mờ. Cũng may là vào năm 1994 Việt Nam có ký một thỏa thuận liên quan đầu tư với chính phủ Hà Lan. Thì bây giờ trên cơ sở ấy Tòa quốc tế phán quyết ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình thắng kiện”.

Đổi mới là một chương trình cải cách toàn diện bao gồm kinh tế và nhiều khía cạnh khác của đời sống xã hội do Đảng Cộng sản Việt Nam khởi xướng vào thập niên 1980. Đổi mới về kinh tế được chính thức thực hiện từ Đại hội đại biểu Đảng Cộng sản Việt Nam lần VI, năm 1986.

Luật Đầu tư nước ngoài tại Việt nam năm 1987 được xây dựng từ văn bản pháp quy đầu tiên quy định về đầu tư nước ngoài 1977. Được sửa đổi, bổ sung vào năm 1990 và năm 1992; và đến năm 1996 Quốc hội Việt Nam chính thức thông qua Luật Đầu tư nước ngoài tại Việt Nam.

Cũng trong những năm này, Việt Nam bắt đầu ký các hiệp định khuyến khích đầu tư với các nước, trong số đó có Hiệp định Khuyến khích và bảo hộ đầu tư giữa Chính phủ Việt Nam và Chính phủ Vương quốc Hà Lan được ký kết năm 1994.

Theo Bộ Kế hoạch Đầu tư, tính đến ngày 20/9/2018, tại Việt Nam có 26.646 dự án đầu tư nước ngoài còn hiệu lực, với tổng vốn đăng ký 334 tỷ USD. Trong giai đoạn 1994-2000 đầu tư nước ngoài đóng góp vào nguồn thu ngân sách 1,8 tỷ USD, trong khi giai đoạn 2011 - 2015, thu ngân sách từ khu vực đầu tư nước ngoài đạt 23,7 tỷ USD.

Tiến sĩ Phạm Chí Dũng cho rằng vụ kiện của ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình cho thấy một thất bại chính trị và ngoại giao của chính phủ Việt Nam, và cảnh báo nếu không cẩn thận, Việt Nam sẽ còn phải nhận thêm các vụ tương tự:

Đây là một bài học rất lớn cho chính phủ Việt Nam, và nếu không rút ra được bài học lớn như thế này, thì số tiền phải bồi thường cho ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình tính luôn án phí khoảng 45 triệu USD chỉ là chuyện nhỏ, mà sẽ còn những thất bại rất lớn.

Tiến sĩ Phạm Chí Dũng

“Qua vụ này thì có thể thấy thêm một thất bại chính trị, thất bại ngoại giao của chính phủ Việt Nam trên trường quốc tế. Tôi không nghĩ sau vụ này thì môi trường đầu tư bị ảnh hưởng nhiều, chỉ có điều sau vụ Trịnh Vĩnh Bình thì sẽ có một số vụ kiện ở trong nước, các doanh nghiệp có vốn đầu tư nước ngoài kiện chính phủ Việt Nam, kiện chính quyền địa phương ở Việt Nam, đem ra tòa quốc tế thay vì đem ra tòa ở Việt Nam. Thì lúc đó Việt Nam sẽ phải lãnh nhận hàng loạt các vụ thất bại mới”.

Ngoài vụ kiện của ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình, trang tin The Guardian hôm 15/8/2018, trích thông tin điều tra của Finance Uncovered cho biết, hai tập đoàn dầu khí đa quốc gia là ConocoPhillips và Perenco đã đệ đơn lên tòa án thuộc Liên Hiệp Quốc để được phân xử không phải trả thuế cho Chính phủ Việt Nam trong thương vụ giao dịch của hai công ty này theo Luật Thương mại Quốc tế.

Tin cho biết ConocoPhillips đã bán hai công ty con nằm ở Việt Nam cho Tập đoàn Perenco. Thương vụ được bán với giá 1,3 tỷ đô la Mỹ và ConocoPhillips thu về lợi nhuận 896 triệu USD. Chính phủ Việt Nam cho biết sẽ thu khoảng 179 triệu USD tiền thuế lợi nhuận trong thương vụ này.

Người phát ngôn của ConocoPhillips giải thích rằng việc mua bán giữa hai công ty cư trú ở Anh nên không phải trả tiền thuế cho Chính phủ Việt Nam, và ConocoPhillips sẽ tìm kiếm tất cả các biện pháp pháp lý để chống lại việc thu thuế của Chính phủ Việt Nam trong giao dịch đó.

Cho đến nay, phía Tập đoàn ConocoPhillips và Hội đồng trọng tài vẫn chưa cung cấp các thông tin về địa điểm và thời gian phiên tòa sẽ diễn ra.

Tiến sĩ Phạm Chí Dũng nhận định:

“Đây là một bài học rất lớn cho chính phủ Việt Nam, và nếu không rút ra được bài học lớn như thế này, thì số tiền phải bồi thường cho ông Trịnh Vĩnh Bình tính luôn án phí khoảng 45 triệu USD chỉ là chuyện nhỏ, mà sẽ còn những thất bại rất lớn. Ví dụ như Việt Nam muốn kiện Trung Quốc ra Tòa Quốc tế The Hague, về vấn đề biển Đông. Ngay cả có kiện Trung Quốc ra tòa quốc tế, nếu Việt Nam không chuẩn bị đầy đủ cơ sở dữ liệu về pháp lý cần thiết thì vẫn có thể thua như thường. Mặc dù về lý là Việt Nam đúng nếu kiện về vấn đề chủ quyền biển Đông thuộc về Việt Nam. Do quá trình chuẩn bị quá tồi tệ nên Việt Nam vẫn có thể thua như thường”.

Tiến sĩ Lê Đăng Doanh thì cho rằng, phía Việt Nam phải có sự chuẩn bị để có thể đáp ứng các yêu cầu kiện cáo, điều quan trọng phải chuẩn bị hồ sơ và có các luật sư am hiểu luật quốc tế, am hiểu tình tiết để tránh lập lại các trường hợp như vụ Trịnh Vĩnh Bình.

          NTUC Income taps ZhongAn to target new markets      Comment   Translate Page      

NTUC Income has signed an agreement with ZA Tech Global – the international business arm overseeing the technology exports of ZhongAn Online P&C Insurance Co. – whereby the former will use the latter’s “Digital Insurance Core System” to assist Income in improving its agility and cost-efficiency as it strives to introduce more bespoke and modularized products to customers.

ZhongAn will leverage Income’s position as a top composite insurer in Singapore to test-bed and scale digital innovation in Singapore and regionally, using ZhongAn technology to support its overseas business development, to expedite the digitalization of insurance industry in Southeast Asia.

According to Peter Tay, Income’s chief operating officer and head of Digital Transformation Office (DTO), ZhongAn’s expertise in Insurtech and modularized insurance will enhance Income’s agility when developing insurance offerings to meet customers’ changing needs.

“We can now test-bed digital innovation via ZhongAn’s technology platform without causing a potential operational burden to the business and this allows us to pivot away from products that get less traction with customers and scale those that resonate better with speed,” said Tay.

Income hopes tapping into ZhongAn’s insurtech will help it unlock new possibilities in which insurance can be designed and offered to address customer pain points. “We believe that this partnership will enable Income to reach a segment of customers, who are typically less receptive to traditional insurance offerings and distribution channels. Recognizing that digital disruptions have cultivated new consumer behavior, we aim to be future-ready to meet the digital lifestyle needs of tomorrow by disrupting insurance today,” Tay concluded.

One of the first products arising from this partnership is a lifestyle insurance product tailored to the tourism sector in Singapore. It is slated for a second quarter of 2019 release. The product aims to protect both residents and tourists in Singapore against contingent events when they visit specific tourist attractions.

The product will capitalize on Singapore’s growing inbound tourism industry which reported 18.5 million arrivals in 2018, up 6.2% increase over 2017.

          Singapour: Les Bleus remportent le Challenge Trophy      Comment   Translate Page      
On avait laissé samedi les Bleus sur la jante, éprouvés physiquement après leurs 2 finales successives (Vancouver, Hong Kong) et dans l'incapacité de s'extraire cette fois de la phase de poules à l'occasion de cette 8e étape du circuit mondial avec 2 défaites pour une seule victoire. Il faut croire que la nuit a été bénéfique, puisque cette équipe de France a su se refaire un moral et trouvé des ressources pour s'adjuger dimanche le Challenge Trophy, la traditionnelle consolante.  Les joueurs de Jérôme Daret ont su enchaîner 3 succès successivement face au Kenya (24-14), puis contre le Canada (19-12), avant de conclure en beauté lors de la finale qui les opposait à l'Ecosse (22-19). Les Tricolores ont frappé d'entrée par Gabin Vilière, après 10 secondes de jeu, avant que Tavite Veredamu ne scelle la victoire sur la sirène, suite à un jeu au pied. Avec un doublé pour chacun des 2 joueurs parmi les plus en vue de cette étape.

          The Ketogenic Diet and Its Physiological Effects on the Human Body      Comment   Translate Page      

In this interview, Benjamin Bikman, Ph.D., an obesity and diabetes scientist and associate professor of physiology and developmental biology at Brigham Young University (BYU) in Utah,1 reveals how the ketogenic diet affects your physiology and supports optimal health.

“My main interest early on was looking at how the body adapts to obesity,” he says. “That was my master’s thesis. My master’s degree was exercise science here at BYU … I ended up pursuing a Ph.D. in bioenergetics at East Carolina University, under this wonderful scientist named Lynis Dohm, Ph.D.

His focus had been looking at how lipids cause insulin resistance. That was an interest of mine, because I thought this was starting to explain why and how the body becomes insulin-resistant in the midst of obesity … Insulin resistance is that connection.

During my Ph.D., we were looking at inflammation in people who were losing weight following gastric bypass procedures and how improved inflammation is likely part of the improvements in insulin sensitivity that people see post-bypass.

I followed that up with a post-doctoral fellowship at … the Duke National University of Singapore. They had this focus on cardio metabolic disorders. I … looked at inflammation as a particular mediator there … Then in 2011, my alma mater, BYU, came knocking. They wanted to do more diabetes research, and I fit the requirements … That got me, essentially, to where I am now …

If I really am getting this conviction, based on my own research, that insulin is key to not only diabetes but to almost every chronic disease, what is the best way to control insulin? That was when I insisted on only looking at published human clinical data — not rodents, not cells, not epidemiology, just clinical data.

The low-carb diet was just this very effective way to do that. That then got me interested in asking questions about ketones, which is what my lab is doing … how ketones are regulated by insulin.”

Bikman’s conviction that insulin is a key to health and disease prevention, and that controlling carbohydrate intake is the most effective way to control insulin, led him to start practicing what he’d learned. He went on a low-carb diet about eight years ago. “Sure enough, at middle age, it’s helped me stay healthy,” he says.

Most Americans Are Insulin Resistant

Unfortunately, many, including doctors, still do not understand the influence of insulin on health and disease. The late Dr. Joseph Kraft, former chairman of the department of clinical pathology and nuclear medicine at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chicago, wrote the book “Diabetes Epidemic and You: Should Everyone Be Tested?”

In it, he presents data that suggests 80 percent of Americans are in fact insulin resistant, or have “diabetes in situ.” Based on data from 14,000 patients,2 Kraft developed a powerful predictive test for diabetes.3 He would have the patient drink 75 grams of glucose, and then measure their insulin response over time, at half-hour intervals for up to five hours.

He noticed five distinctive patterns suggesting that a vast majority of people were already diabetic, even though their fasting glucose was normal. Only 20 percent of patients had healthy post-prandial insulin sensitivity and low diabetes risk. According to Kraft, “Those with cardiovascular disease not identified with diabetes … are simply undiagnosed.”

One of the take-home messages here is that insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia (a condition marked by excess insulin in your blood relative to your level of glucose) are two sides of the same coin, as they drive and promote each other. In other words, if you have hyperinsulinemia, you are essentially insulin resistant and on your way toward developing Type 2 diabetes.

High Insulin Is a Key Disease Promoter

Both insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia promote fatty liver and high blood glucose, and both of those in turn promote atherosclerosis. High blood pressure is another side effect of insulin resistance that drives atherosclerosis by placing stress on your arteries.

The effects of insulin resistance are really at the heart of most if not all chronic degenerative diseases. Diabetes, heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s are just a few of the most obvious ones. The logical conclusion then would be that addressing insulin resistance is a foundational component of effective health care. Bikman says:

“When I teach this to my students … I put insulin resistance in the core. Around it, I have all these chronic diseases. It’s what I call the ‘wheel of misfortune.’ Really, the most common cancers, prostate and breast cancers, almost always … will heavily express — by six or seven times — the number of insulin receptors. So, insulin is promoting the growth of the tumor.

With dementia, the connection between insulin resistance and Alzheimer’s is so tight that people refer to it as Type 3 diabetes. With sarcopenia, we know that if a muscle becomes insulin-resistant, that actually diminishes insulin’s ability to promote the anabolic production of proteins within the muscle …

We have to have our medical practitioners start appreciating … the utility [of] measuring insulin, because our focus on measuring glucose misses the mark. As someone’s becoming insulin-resistant, their insulin is climbing, but it’s enough to keep their glucose in check.

And because we always look at glucose, we don’t catch the disease until they become so insulin-resistant that no amount of their own insulin is enough to keep the glucose in check. Now, the glucose starts to climb — 10 years later, perhaps — and that’s when we detect the problem. We’re looking at the wrong marker.”

How the Ketogenic Diet Improves Insulin Sensitivity

The question then becomes, how do we treat insulin resistance? As Bikman’s research reveals, the ketogenic diet is part and parcel of the “cure” for this condition.

“For me, the benefit of a low-carb ketogenic diet is that it addresses the endocrine aspect of metabolic health,” Bikman says. “For too long … the message has been completely focused on calorie number.

It is this idea that if you can simply put a person into caloric deficiency, they will lose weight — problem solved … But we know that has long-term consequences … There’s a lasting metabolic damage …

Nevertheless, the power of the low-carbohydrate diet is that it addresses the endocrine component. As important as calorie number is, and I can appreciate the laws of thermodynamics … we cannot ignore the relevance of hormones, especially insulin.”

As explained by Bikman, it’s important to realize that insulin is what dictates what your body does with the energy it has — the energy you consume and the energy you have stored. “Insulin has its strong, capable hands right on the steering wheel of what the body does with the energy that it has available,” he says.

Importantly, research shows your metabolic rate increases as insulin decreases. “To me, that’s the power of the low-carb diet. You’re controlling insulin, and that can start to address all of those chronic diseases,” Bikman says.

The Importance of Cycling High and Low Carbohydrate Intake

For all its benefits though, there are drawbacks to staying in chronic nutritional ketosis. Based on the evidence, I’m convinced one needs to pulse or cycle in and out of nutritional ketosis. Bikman, who is in general agreement with this idea, explains:

“As a scientist, I wish there were longer-term studies to be able to conclusively say you can’t do this long-term or you can. What I’m comfortable saying, with a little bit of speculation, is that … the avoidance of carbohydrates for a prolonged period will create this situation of a relative glucose intolerance.

Now, I’m not going to say that causes insulin resistance. Some people say low-carb [diet] causes physiological insulin resistance … To me, a low-carb diet can create a situation of carbohydrate intolerance. That is reflective of a general and very substantial shift in energy use.

Insulin is down — that means the body is in fat-burning mode. That is the absolute bioenergetic fuel. If insulin is low, you are fueled with fat. That can create a shift where the body becomes almost reluctant to fuel itself with carbohydrates.

That’s where you have instances of someone adopting a low-carbohydrate diet, and then they’ll eat a carbohydrate load and they’ll say, ‘Wow, my glucose levels; it’s like I’ve become diabetic.’ That’s not the same thing. They become glucose-intolerant.

If that’s something someone wants to avoid for whatever reason, then cyclical [keto] is probably the way to go. You kind of spike the glucose from time to time, maybe weekly, whatever would work best for the person … The idea [is] you have that frequent-enough exposure to carbohydrates so that you can maintain that tolerance to the carbohydrates …”

Insulin also suppresses the liver’s ability to produce glucose. It impairs gluconeogenesis. What this means is that if your insulin level is too low for too long, your glucose level can start to rise. While this is not universally true for everyone, it can occur, as it did for me. Cycling in and out of ketosis will help you avoid this paradoxical side effect as well. Bikman notes:

“I’ve heard enough people say that. I think it has to be taken seriously. Nevertheless, glucagon [hormone] starts to climb. Insulin’s main effect is to take glucose from the blood (or any fuel) and push it into the cells. Glucagon does the opposite. Glucagon wants to mobilize fuel from tissues and push it into the blood.

One of glucagon’s main actions is to promote the breakdown of stored glycogen to promote the production of glucose in the liver. In that instance, where insulin has gone too low then, theoretically, glucagon could go too high, and that could increase glucose too much … That’s kind of reflective, perhaps, of that intolerance I mentioned …

With regards to the context of low-carb [causing] glucose to climb over time, it could be due to the lack of insulin, and thus an absence of the inhibition of glucagon production from the pancreas. The pancreas is making too much glucagon. That could potentially be driving up glucose levels.”

The Connection Between Gut Bacteria and Liver Health

Bikman also summarizes how a high-fiber diet helps combat fatty liver disease, which it does by way of influencing your gut microbiome.

“While the human body doesn’t get any energetic benefit from the fiber, the bacteria do. The bacteria are able to use the fiber as fuel. One of the products of that is short-chain fatty acids, [such as] butyrate.

What’s interesting is that as the fiber is being digested by the bacteria to create butyrate, that short-chain fat can get absorbed into the body … [I]t goes right into the portal vein from the gut, right to the liver …

Short-chain fatty acids are so stimulatory with regards to mitochondrial biogenesis … that it actually can combat fatty liver disease. It’s kind of a fun little paradox of using a fat to fight the fat that’s stored in the liver, in the case of fatty liver disease. Nevertheless, that’s an odd little connection between gut bacteria and liver health.”

Butyric acid (butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid produced by bacteria in your gut) is really similar to the ketone hydroxybutyrate, produced by your liver during the conversion of fat into energy.

The primary difference between the two is that hydroxybutyrate isn’t as absorbable. Most of it is used locally by colonocytes (epithelial cells of your colon). In other words, hydroxybutyrate is used for fuel in your gut, while butyrate benefits your liver.

The Mechanistic Target of Rapamycin — A Driver of Ill Health

The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), also known as the mechanistic target of rapamycin, is an incredibly important pathway, as it controls autophagy — your body’s natural clean-up process in which old, damaged cells are eliminated and replaced with new, healthy ones. As such, it also plays an important role in aging and cancer.

In short, to slow aging and reduce your risk of cancer, you want to inhibit mTOR, as this triggers autophagy. When mTOR is activated, autophagy is deactivated, which prevents the recycling of proteins. Alas, chronic suppression of mTOR is not ideal either. Bikman explains:

“What’s important with regards to mTOR … is that because it inhibits autophagy, it is thought to allow proteins and just organelles, parts of the cells, to get old due to things like oxidative damage. As those proteins get damaged, they get old, and then the cell, by extension, gets old.

As the cells get old, so too is the organ, and then the whole body … But … the body has been designed with far too clever a scheme to have something that shouldn’t be there; mTOR is so fundamental to life that you can’t just go in and just slam the breaks on it, because that is death. We have to grow. We have to allow a cell to grow, and tissue to grow.

This idea [is to] optimize or strategically focus on boosting mTOR and letting it come back down to keep the body young, to keep the cells cleaning themselves out through autophagy … Then you inhibit that and allow the body to grow with this cyclical spike of mTOR.

A lot of the focus … among vegetarians … is this idea that you’ve got to avoid animal protein because it spikes mTOR. That’s the wrong way of looking at it … What spikes mTOR the most and the longest? Insulin spikes mTOR far more than amino acids do.”

Insulin Activates mTOR to a Far Greater Degree Than Protein

In other words, sugar/carbohydrates are the No. 1 enemy when it comes to activating mTOR and driving the aging and disease processes. According to Bikman, a direct comparison in tissue shows insulin spikes mTOR three to four times higher than leucine, the amino acid that has the greatest impact on mTOR, raising it the most.

Importantly, while amino acids such as leucine, or protein in general, will spike mTOR for 45 to 90 minutes, after which mTOR dials back down, if you eat lots of starchy, sugary foods, you have chronically elevated insulin and hence chronically activated mTOR, and that’s what’s causing problems.

“If you look at the global breakfast trends, it’s going to be something starchy and sugary. Insulin will come up, depending on the person, [and stay elevated for] two to even four hours; mTOR is active that whole time. Then, right as the insulin is coming down, they have a mid-morning snack.

Of course, it’s another starch and it’s another sugar. Insulin comes up again and it’s up for hours. Of course, as insulin is up, so too is mTOR. That, I submit, is far more pathological — this chronic, every-waking-moment mTOR activation because of insulin, rather than these intermittent spikes of mTOR because of the ingestion of protein.”

The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

Aside from a ketogenic diet, intermittent fasting — where you do not eat for 16 to 18 hours a day; 12 hours being the absolute minimum — is another effective way to regain your insulin sensitivity and control mTOR.

Basically, while you’re fasting, your insulin will dramatically drop, allowing your body to enter into autophagy and clean itself out. Then, when you refeed, your body deactivates autophagy and starts to rebuild itself.

Dr. Jason Fung, a nephrologist, recently published a case series paper4 on three diabetic patients — all of whom were on high doses of insulin — detailing how intermittent fasting can be used as a therapeutic alternative for Type 2 diabetes.

Of the three patients, two did alternating-day 24-hour fasts, while one fasted for 24 hours three times a week over a period of several months. On nonfasting days, they were allowed both lunch and dinner, but all meals were low in sugar and refined carbohydrates throughout. (The complete manual of the fasting regimen used is described in Fung’s book, “The Complete Guide to Fasting.”5)

Two of the patients were able to discontinue all of their diabetes medications while the third was able to discontinue three of his four drugs. All three also lost between 10 and 18 percent of their body weight. Incredibly, all were able to discontinue their insulin in just five to 18 days. Bikman comments:

“From the context of controlling insulin, there are studies on insulin-resistant people where they are on isocaloric diets, so the same amount of calories, but one is eating them frequently in smaller amounts and one is packing them in a smaller window …

Those on the time-restricted eating schedule … had greater drops in glucose and insulin. That, to me, is the beginning and end. As a guy who sees the relevance of insulin in any chronic disease … I just simply ask, what controls insulin?

Simply give your body a break from eating. Twelve hours should be what everyone does every night of the week, even if they’re eating three full meals. At least get that 12-hour break, for heaven’s sake.

As a professor, I see kids who live on cold cereal. They’re eating three bowls of cereal at midnight. [Then] they have the same three bowls of cereal at 7 or 8 a.m. I hear them, of course. They’re smug, ‘I can eat whatever I want.’ I say, ‘Let’s see how you’re doing in 10 years.’”

The reason you want to avoid eating for 16 to 18 hours is because you cannot effectively deplete the glycogen stores in your liver otherwise. As noted by Bikman, your liver will hold, on average, 100 grams of glycogen, and it takes anywhere between 24 and 48 hours to burn that up.

What this means is that if you’re eating a high-carb diet and want to get into ketosis, you’ll need to totally restrict carbohydrates or fast for at least 24 hours. Once you start running out of glycogen, your ketones will start to rise to take its place as a fuel for your body. Around 48 hours, you’re solidly in ketosis as the glycogen in your liver has been cleared.

On a side note, fasting will also release fat-bound toxins and facilitate detoxification. As noted by Bikman, “as insulin comes down, your urine production starts to increase,” as your kidneys start to flush out toxins.

Industrial Seed Oils — Another Culprit That Drives Disease

The devil’s in the details, of course, and the main problems are caused not only by refined carbohydrates in the Western processed food diet but also by processed seed oils, which Bikman describe as “surprisingly pathogenic.”

“We’ve just started a project in my lab. I’ve got a really sharp undergraduate who’s focusing on the main oxidized product of seed oils,” he says. “When you look at that main omega-6 and how it gets oxidized through this molecule called 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE), we’re looking at how it accumulates in muscle cells.

It is forcing these changes in the way the mitochondria are physically put together. Mitochondria love to be very dynamic. They’re long and stringy. They’ll separate often to small pieces then come back together. Not all have a very relevant physiological purpose with regards to cell growth and division.

Yet, in the case of 4-HNE accumulation, that process gets stopped. Now you’ve forced this sustained static state of the mitochondria, which is not healthy for them or the cell. I can’t say anything more about it yet just because we don’t have all the data yet, but it’s coming.”

Ketones — A Surrogate Marker for Insulin

While measuring insulin is really valuable, you need a doctor’s order to test it. Fortunately, there’s a good surrogate marker for insulin, namely your ketone level, because you cannot have high insulin if you have high ketones. In other words, ketones are an inverse indicator of what your insulin is. (One of the best ketone devices I know of is Keto-Mojo, as the strips are only $1 each.)

“That was my initial interest in ketones, because it provided that immediate marker of what insulin is, even in a way that glucose cannot. You can have normal glucose levels and have insulin be elevated. If you’re insulin-resistant, you just need more insulin to keep your glucose normal, so you can’t rely on glucose.

In a way, ketones then become more sensitive as a marker, a surrogate for insulin, than even glucose is. Over time, if someone’s had their insulin levels in control for a sufficient period, their liver is basically burning fat at such a high rate that it’s burning more fat than it needs, and so the body has this very kind of clever release or exhaust valve, which is the production of ketones,” Bikman says.

“We have to account for how energy is consumed, how it is used in the form of creating ATP or just body heat — even that’s relevant in ketosis — but then third, for lack of a better word, this energy wasting, because ketones provide this kind of exhaust valve where the body is burning fat so high that it has more than it needs, and it just starts moving it out of the body, in the breath and in the urine.

That needs to be considered, or at least acknowledged … Once again, insulin dictates what the body does with the energy that it has, including producing ketones and having them basically be wasted from the body.”

When and What to Eat When Exercising

Clearly, your diet is far more important than exercise when it comes to controlling your insulin and overall health. That said, I don’t think you can achieve optimal health unless you integrate exercise. The practical question is, “What and when should you eat when you exercise?” My conclusion is that protein is a necessary component of a post-workout meal, and that it’s best to exercise in a fasted state. Bikman agrees, saying:

“With regards to protein, it is without a doubt relevant to someone doing endurance or resistance exercise. You need to make sure you get enough protein. But it appears to be no magic window with that. Basically, you don’t have to get it 45 minutes or an hour after your workout. Essentially, within a 24-hour window, if you’ve eaten sufficient protein, then you’re okay.

Now, with regards to carbohydrate, there was a very neat study done with college students, where they had them exercise and then their next meal was a carbohydrate-rich meal in one group. In the other group, they fasted through that next meal … The group that ate the high-carb diet … did not have an improvement in insulin sensitivity.

By ending their exercise and then having the next meal be a high-carb meal, that undid the improvements in insulin sensitivity from the exercise itself. That has ramifications, because so often someone gets done exercising and they reward themselves with something like juice at some smoothie joint, or they indulge themselves.

They treat themselves with some carbohydrates thinking, ‘I spent it, so I need to eat it.’ What a shame. They are directly preventing some of the insulin-sensitizing benefit of the exercise, because of what they ate …

Like you, I prefer to exercise fasted … I don’t like having something in my gut when I’m trying to push my blood to my muscles … That blood has to come from the gut.

You basically are creating this little war, this hemodynamic war where during exercise and yet having eaten something, your body is thinking, ‘Wait a minute. I need to be sending blood into my guts to help move this food through the intestines and digest it. But now, my muscles are active, so I’ve got to push the blood to my muscles.’

You’re creating this split, forcing the body to prioritize where the blood wants to go. But if you leave the food in the gut, that’s going to start to develop some gastrointestinal discomfort.”

The Importance of Leucine Post-Exercise

One of the most important protein sources when you’re exercising is the amino acid leucine. Interestingly, and paradoxically, leucine actually activates autophagy, even though it also activates mTOR, which logically says would result in autophagy being inhibited. This paradox likely has to do with the fact that leucine is ketogenic, meaning it can turn into a ketone, and ketones activate autophagy.

Leucine is so effective for muscle building, research cited by Bikman shows just 5 grams of leucine is enough to maximize muscle protein synthesis in people on an otherwise protein-deficient diet. When it comes to leucine supplements, hydroxymethylbutyrate (HBM) is a breakdown product of leucine that you can take. However, it’s more expensive, and according to Bikman’s reading of the literature, it has no added benefits over leucine itself.

“Just leave it on the store shelf. Don’t spend that higher amount. It is more money than leucine. Just stick with the leucine,” he says. “Leucine is one of the so-called ketogenic amino acids. It can, in fact, take that carbon skeleton of the leucine and turn it into a ketone.

Some amino acids are referred to as glycolytic, where they can come in and basically turn into alanine. They can readily turn into glucose as needed. Leucine is one of the ketogenic ones, [which] can turn into ketones, beta-hydroxybutyrate in particular. I’d say that if there’s any benefit to HMB, you’re going to get that anyway, because the leucine is going to become HMB.”

Collagen Does Not Count as a Protein Source

As a general rule, to optimize mTOR, you’ll want to restrict your protein intake to about 0.5 grams of protein per pound of lean body mass (not total body weight), or 1 gram of protein per kilo of lean mass. The elderly may need up to 25 percent more.

When calculating your protein intake, keep in mind you do not need to include collagen in your calculations, as it does not have the full complement of amino acids to be considered a complete protein. Collagen — provided it’s a high-quality, organic grass fed source — is important for the health of your connective tissue, and will help prevent injuries. So, while you don’t want to have excess protein, you almost get a free pass with collagen.

“Collagen [contains] a different bunch of amino acids,” Bikman explains. “One in particular is hydroxyproline, one of the main building blocks for collagen in the body. I’ve had people kind of challenge that idea and say, ‘Well, but when you eat these proteins, even in the form of collagen, it will degrade into the amino acids. The body will just kind of choose whatever amino acids it wants to put back together to make whatever proteins it wants.’

That’s generally true. There is a very neat rat study. We just have to assume the same thing holds in humans. I think it’s a safe assumption here. They had the rats eat a radio-labelled hydroxyproline, so they could basically follow that hydroxyproline around.

Sure enough, it went to the skin and to the connective tissue. They could detect where it was enriched. It was all this connective tissue-rich or collagen-rich tissue in the body. I am an advocate of collagen. The evidence supports it. It’s especially relevant to someone who adheres to a low-carb diet. Vitamin C is called C for collagen.

What’s important is that if you’re eating less vitamin C, it’s comforting to know that you’re fulfilling that need essentially by getting not only the collagen itself from the meat that you’re eating, that connective tissue and that hydroxyproline and the other amino acids relevant to collagen, but also carnitine, which is relevant to the function and production of collagen within the body.

Even a low-carb person, who’s avoiding vitamin C, can rest assured their joints and connective tissues are going to be OK, because they’re actually directly eating what they need rather than having the body make what they need with the help of vitamin C.”

Rich Franklin

From math teacher to middleweight champion, Rich Franklin can now call himself a UFC Hall of Famer as he joins the class of 2019 that will be inducted on July 5 in Las Vegas.

A native of Cincinnati, OH where he previously worked as a school teacher, Franklin first fought in the UFC back in 2003 when he made quite a splash in his debut with a TKO win over Evan Tanner.

Franklin would eventually rematch Tanner two years later where he would become the UFC middleweight champion.

He defended the title on two different occasions including a memorable knockout against Nate Quarry that still plays in highlight reels to this day.

After his reign as champion ended, Franklin took on all comers while competing at both 185 pounds and 205 pounds.

He earned wins over the likes of Yushin Okami, Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva on two separate occasions.

Franklin decided to retire from the sport in 2015 before taking on an executive role with ONE Championship in Singapore.

Now Franklin will return to his old stomping grounds in Las Vegas where he joins the UFC Hall of Fame class of 2019 with the induction ceremony taking place during International Fight Week.

          Speech by CE at Asian Universities Alliance Summit 2019 Presidents Forum (English only) (with photo/video)      Comment   Translate Page      
     Following is the speech by the Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, at the Asian Universities Alliance Summit 2019 Presidents Forum this morning (April 14):
 
     Professor Qiu (President of Tsinghua University, Professor Qiu Yong), Mr Liao (Chairman of Council of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), Mr Andrew Liao), Professor Shyy (President of HKUST, Professor Shyy Wei), consul-generals, university presidents, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

     Good morning. I'm delighted to welcome the Asian Universities Alliance (AUA) and its third annual summit to Hong Kong. Thank you for inviting me to join today's Presidents Forum, where great minds like yours come together to consider issues of concern to us, and issues of importance to Asia and the world.
 
     Hong Kong prides itself on connectivity, and we promote our city as Asia's World City, a perfect location in Asia for people to connect and excel. The focus of such connectivity ranges from finance to trade, from technology to culture, etc. This is why throughout the year, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government hosts or supports international and regional gatherings like the Asian Financial Forum, the Belt and Road Summit, the Internet Economy Summit (which by the way will take place tomorrow at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre) and the Asia Cultural Co-operation Forum. I am therefore delighted that the AUA has chosen Hong Kong as the place to hold its third annual summit. Obviously the AUA also believes in the power of connectivity, which explains why since the Tsinghua University first proposed to establish the AUA in April 2016, it had only taken a year for all the preparatory work to be completed and for the AUA to be formally launched in 2017. Through the AUA, the 15 founding universities seek to jointly address regional and global challenges, specifically related to higher education and economic, scientific and technological development, by strengthening collaboration. In Professor Qiu's words, the founding of AUA marks a significant milestone in Asian higher education. It is a product of the common needs and shared expectation of the 15 founding universities.   
 
     This growing connectivity within Asia is, in my view, both necessary and meaningful. The region already plays a pivotal role in the global economy and is destined to continue to provide the impetus for growth. In my former capacity as the Chief Secretary for Administration, I was invited to contribute a piece to a publication by the UK's Asia House released in 2016 entitled Asia 2025. In the book's Foreword, the Chairman of Asia House remarked that "it is not the abundance of opportunity that will fully confirm Asia's significance", but we will be seeing "a new phase of global development and underlining the value of educational links and shared scientific research". With its foresight, AUA and its founding universities are clearly embracing that shared value.  
 
     At the government level, especially with the strong tradition of an open economy, Hong Kong embraces the importance of enhanced connectivity with other Asian economies. To name just a few of our specific initiatives, we have entered into a Hong Kong – ASEAN Free Trade Agreement and related Investment Agreement in late 2017, which subject to the necessary ratification should come into effect this year. We have opened a new Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Bangkok in February 2019, our third office in ASEAN after Singapore and Jakarta. We have plans for opening similar offices in Dubai, Mumbai and Seoul. Since taking office in July 2017, I and my colleague, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development have visited Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia and the Philippines. We have introduced Belt and Road scholarships for students from Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Myanmar to study in our local universities. I should add that for over 20 years, the Hong Kong-based Asian Youth Orchestra has helped nurture music and friendship amongst young musicians in the region. The education links represented by the AUA are therefore a much-valued partner in this enhanced network that we are building.
 
     Let me now turn to the Presidents Forum today. Your forum agenda, with sustainable development and technological entrepreneurship as central themes, is as ambitious and welcome as the AUA itself. The central question at hand is this: what can our post-secondary institutions bring to these complex challenges, these compelling opportunities? The answers will go a long way towards realising a flourishing and inclusive future for our universities, our economies and the Asian region as a whole.
 
     Innovation and technology is a policy priority for my Government and an area of progressive growth and boundless promise for our universities. Hong Kong has what it takes to be successful in this field. To start with, we have world-class research capabilities. Four Hong Kong universities rank among the world's top 100. That includes the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, a founding member of the AUA. Let me add that this prestigious university is among the top young universities in the world, leading the way in science and engineering-related subjects. 
 
     Hong Kong's technology research strengths include biotechnology, artificial intelligence and robotics. To expand on these and other areas of excellence, we have in recent years put in place numerous policies and programmes to promote R&D at our universities. Our Innovation and Technology Fund, for example, supports both applied and forward-looking R&D projects undertaken by our universities. We also have the Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities under the Fund, which enables university professors and students to start technology companies and commercialise their R&D results.
 
     In January this year, we launched the Partnership Research Programme under the Fund. It sponsors R&D projects undertaken by private companies in collaboration with local universities.  There is also a dedicated programme which funds universities engaged in midstream research.
 
     On top of the above, our Innovation and Technology Fund assists universities in their technology transfer. And, I'm pleased to note, R&D results among our universities are encouraging. A start-up linked with Hong Kong Polytechnic University, for example, developed soft contact lenses and spectacle lenses that can retard the progression of myopia in children.  Its related defocus-incorporated-multiple-segments technology won the Grand Prize at last year's International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva. The research behind this breakthrough was funded by our Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities that I mentioned just now. By the way, I am thrilled to learn from yesterday's news and this morning's newspapers that this year's Geneva Exhibition of Inventions' Grand Prize also goes to a Hong Kong company, a start-up at Science Park, with a water-based manufacturing process to recycle and reuse lithium battery as its winning entry.
 
     Excellent work is also being done by the 16 State Key Labs and six local branches of Chinese National Engineering Research Centres here, which are funded in full or in part by the Innovation and Technology Fund. Hosted by Hong Kong universities, their achievements include the new stress-tolerant soybean cultivar, and the world's first scientific model for predicting metal toxicity in marine environments and bodies of water. Let me add that Professor Dennis Lo, Director of the State Key Lab of Translational Oncology, was named among the "Top 20 Translational Researchers" for two consecutive years by the world-renowned journal Nature Biotechnology. Professor Lo developed a noninvasive prenatal diagnostic technology that has benefited millions of pregnant women around the world. And SenseTime, a home-grown technology company in the Hong Kong Science Park founded by Professor Tang Xiaoou has developed into the world's most valuable AI start-up in just a little over three years.
 
     It's all very encouraging, which is why we continue to expand our support – through facilitating policies and considerable investment at some US$12.5 billion in the past two years.  This fiscal year, my Government doubled annual funding under our Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities. Each university now gets more than US$1 million a year. We've done the same for the technology transfer office of each university, which means a doubling of funding to more than US$1 million a year. As for our State Key Labs and the Hong Kong Branches of Chinese National Engineering Research Centres, their annual funding has also been doubled to US$1.3 million.
 
     And to boost our impressive talent base, my Government launched the Postdoctoral Hub last August under the Innovation and Technology Fund. It funds universities and other organisations in their recruitment of post-doctoral talent for R&D work. The Researcher Programme also supports them in the hiring of local graduates to assist in R&D projects. Since February, the maximum time period for these two programmes has been extended to three years. Response is overwhelming with the Researcher Programme having sponsored over 3 800 local graduates to join the innovation and technology industry and the Postdoctoral Hub Programme having sponsored 360 postdoctoral talents to pursue a career in R&D. 
 
     We are, in short, committed to helping our universities realise their full R&D potential. Our more ambitious goal, however, is to help build an international innovation and technology hub here in Hong Kong. That includes the establishment of two world-class research clusters at our Science Park – one targeting healthcare technologies, the other artificial intelligence and robotics. In each case, we are inviting renowned universities, research institutions and companies from all over the world to look to Hong Kong for their future.
 
     The response has been encouraging, and from such prestigious universities as Harvard, Stanford and Johns Hopkins in the United States, Imperial College and University College London in the United Kingdom, the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany and the Institut Pasteur in France. From the Mainland of China, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Tsinghua University are amongst the active project proponents. In all, we've received nearly 50 proposals to date, and the first research institutions will be setting up their laboratories in two brand new buildings at the Science Park before the end of this year.
 
     We are also building unprecedented connections and opportunity through the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. The city cluster comprises the two Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao and nine major cities in Guangdong, and each of the 11 cities will contribute their respective strengths. The Outline Development Plan for the Greater Bay Area was promulgated by the Central Government in February this year, and the goal of creating an international innovation and technology hub for the Greater Bay Area occupies a very prominent part of the Plan.
 
     To that end, we are strengthening our collaboration with the Mainland on the innovation and technology front under the "One Country, Two Systems" principle. With the support of the Central Government, our local universities and research institutions are now eligible to apply for state funding on science and technology and the approved funds will be remitted to Hong Kong.  Also in last year, we signed a co-operation arrangement with the Mainland's Ministry of Science and Technology, which serves as an action guide and framework for us to enhance co-operation in scientific research, nurturing of talents, transfer of results, etc. We also entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which will set up an affiliated institution here in Hong Kong to facilitate its research institutes to participate in the research clusters I mentioned earlier. And we've established a Bay Area academician alliance to promote co-operation among academicians from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. They will help advise on the Greater Bay Area's technological development.
 
     We would like to see more world-renowned universities and research institutions joining us, both for the research clusters being set up in Hong Kong and for the Greater Bay Area development. That is why university visits are now almost a "must-see" on my official itinerary overseas. Last week, during my trip to Japan, I visited the University of Tokyo, a member of the AUA, and had a very fruitful meeting with President Gonokami.
 
     While we are all excited about science and technological innovation, we must not forget about sustainable development, or the broader humanity issues, without which there will be little social and ecological harmony. I am glad to note that sustainable development is also a main theme to be discussed at this Presidents Forum.
 
     Hong Kong definitely realises the importance of sustainable development. And the Government has rolled out various environmental blueprints and measures to tackle environmental degradation. I should add that there is also a dedicated chapter in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Outline Development Plan entitled "Taking Forward Ecological Conservation". But time will not allow me to go into details this morning.
 
     Finally, I wish the AUA, and each of its member universities, continuing success, and all of you a rewarding Presidents Forum and Summit here in Hong Kong. Thank you very much.

          Buang Kesempatan, Penyebab Ginting Gagal Juara Singapore Open 2019      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Singapura - Anthony Sinisuka Ginting mengaku membuang kesempatan untuk meraih podium juara Singapore Open 2019. Setelah bermain selama satu jam 13 menit, tunggal putra Indonesia harus mengakui keunggulan Kenta Momota dari Jepang.

Menghadapi Momota di final Singapore Open 2019, Anthony tampil penuh percaya diri pada game pertama. Ia memenangkan game ini dengan skor meyakinkan 21-10.

Memasuki game kedua, pertandingan berlangsung lebih ketat. Tapi, Anthony sempat unggul lima poin untuk memimpin 16-11. Sayang, ia kemudian harus menyerahkan game ini ke Momota setelah berbalik kalah 19-21.

"Di poin kritis, saya nggak bisa menggunakan kesempatan. Nggak tepat cara mainnya. Dari kondisi lapangan menang angin, mau nggak mau inisiatif menyerangnya lebih banyak. Tapi, di game kedua akhir dia lebih antisipasi mainnya," papar Anthony soal kesempatan untuk juara Singapore Open 2019.

Pada game penentu, Anthony membawa angin segar saat unggul 11-7 dan 12-8. Namun, di luar dugaan Momota menyalip skor dengan merebut sembilan angka.

Anthony pun tertinggal 12-17. Setelah itu, Anthony tak bisa bicara banyak. Ia terus berada di bawah Momota hingga menyerah 13-21.

"Pada game ketiga, saya berusaha mengambil poin sebanyak-banyaknya karena lapangannya enak buat kami. Saat interval juga sempat leading juga. Tetapi pas pindah lapangan, mungkin Momota juga lebih antisipasi lagi, sama seperti di game kedua akhir tadi," tutup Anthony.

Hasil Anthony menyamai pencapaian pasangan ganda putra, Hendra Setiawan/Mohammad Ahsan yang juga menjadi runner up di turnamen ini.

Sayangnya di game penentu, setelah kejar mengejar angka, Hendra / Ahsan akhirnya menyerah 17-21. "Di game kedua, kami dapat serangan yang pas jadi bisa dapat beberapa poin berurutan," ucap Hendra.

 

Evaluasi

"Tapi di game ketiganya, mereka lebih siap lagi buat no lobnya. Mereka memang lebih unggul dari kami. Pastinya masih banyak yang harus diperbaiki. Kedepannya nanti akan kami evaluasi lagi setelah sampai di Jakarta," pungkas Hendra.

          FOSSASIA OpenTech Summit’19      Comment   Translate Page      

Last month, I attended FOSSASIA’s annual conference which was held in Singapore. This conference was a collection of amazing, life-changing experiences. It was my first experience as a speaker and it taught me so much about the open-source culture. This summit took place from 14th March to 17th March in the beautiful city of Singapore. This was my second foreign trip as well. First one was to San Francisco as a part of the Student Startup Exposure Program.

My flight was scheduled for 12th March from Jaipur and had a layover at Chennai for 5 hours. I reached the Changi Airport in the early morning of 13th. This airport was quite scenic and is also ranked as the top airport in the world.

433D208A-AE46-440D-B725-F65539BA7D7C

The Changi airport has fairly good transportation connectivity, I took an MRT to Bendemeer where I was going to spend my next few days. I stayed at a hostel located in the heart of the city. It was the first time I was staying in a shared room with 12 others, from different countries. Luckily, I found some other participants and speakers of Fossasia Summit staying in the same hostel (I was not the only techie here, yay!). It was a leisure day, so I planned to go sightseeing around the city with my new friends. We went to the Marina Bay, Night safari and Gardens by the bay. Being a vegetarian was quite hard there as I could barely find some vegetarian food around. There was a lot of seafood available. It was a hot day and we finally reached the hostel back.

58F4569E-1FB4-4EC6-B92D-F5F40BFD7CA9

Next day, I had my breakfast early and reached The Lifelong Learning Institute where the Summit was organized. There were many talks on various tracks from the experts. I was more interested in Cloud, Containers, DevOps and Science and Education tracks.  There were quick lightning talks on variety of topics.

C48C48AE-DDD6-40DE-8D56-FAC5A9145EBD

The next day was similar to the first,  I spent a lot amount of time interacting with the developers around the world and got to know about many new techs and some interesting projects. Another thing I love about these conferences is the goodies and swags, I got a lot of goodies of various open source organizations �� And finally, I found some vegetarian food to eat. In the evening, we decided to explore the Singapore city more and went to Sentosa Island. The transportation facility was really great, the whole city was well-connected. With some fun and adventures, we finally came back to the hostel.

Next day, there were talks on Artificial Intelligence and Web Technologies, I attended a few of them. A UNESCO Hackathon was also organized, I also participated in that whose theme was Indigenous languages. We formed a team of five and built a crowd-sourced corpus generator for translating Indigenous language sentences to English.

It was day 3 of the conference and I was very excited as I was going to deliver my talk “GCompris – The open source Educational suite”. I ended up speaking faster than I planned to, leaving more than enough time for a QA round. My previous contribution with the project as a part of Google  Summer of Code student helped me to answer questions related to tech stacks and how to contribute. Received some suggestions for the improvements of the current activities and met someone who was interested in translating activities in the Thai Language. Also, I met Shantanu Tushar and Sinny Kumari who are KDE contributors.

After the talk, I interacted with many more people and it was a great overall experience for me. Later, we again started working on our Hackathon project and made good progress there. After a lot of hacking and interactions we went to market for some shopping, exploring streets and dinner.

The best part of our hostel was roof top, where I used to go at night to interact with people all around the world who were staying there. I made some new friends from Canada, Russia and Singapore. Also, I met a person from India who was working as a agile DevOps Coach at Singapore. He took me to the nearest Gurudwara where I had my dinner.

It was the last day of the conference and I was also excited about the results of the Hackathon. And to our surprise, we won three out of five categories in the Hackathon. We got first position in AI Dev and Audience attraction category and third place in Cloud Tech(Yayyyy!!). It was really a great moment of joy for us. We got some electric Gadgets including bluetooth Speaker, earphones and badges. We also got the SUSI.ai and PSLab which are the open source hardware projects of Fossasia.

After 4 days of  amazing experince and involvement with open-source, the conference finally came to end with its closing ceremony.

My flight back to home was on the 19th March. First leg was from Singapore to Bangkok and after two and half hours of layover my final leg was to Jaipur. I had mixed emotions on landing in Jaipur with fresh memories of Singapore and my pending college assignments which I was going to do as soon as I return home ��

Fossaia Summit was a great trip and learning experience for me. I hope I can make more trips like this in the future!

          Newton Tan Song Heng : good Fried Hokkien Mee      Comment   Translate Page      
I was there on a Friday for the popular Hai Tang Lor Mee (海棠卤面) but it was closed. Amongst the food choices there, this Fried Hokkien Mee stall was one of those that have got a queue. They used to be at Newton Food Centre before moving to this food centre. I joined the queue and waited for a while before got to order. The auntie was telling me that I have to wait for the next batch of Fried Hokkien Mee. There are the $4, $5 and $6 options to choose and there is also Fried Kway Teow for $3, $4 and $5. I decided to go with the smallest portion of Fried Hokkien Mee as most of their customers were ordering this. While waiting, I chatted with a customer right behind me. She said, "Their Fried Hokkien Mee is very good. I always come to eat this, the Ipoh Hor Fun and also the Lor Mee."


I waited for about 15 minutes to get my plate of Fried Hokkien Mee. Though it is the smallest size, its portion was quite substantial to share with my dining companion. He got to taste it first and he said, "It is moist but not overly wet, the noodles were nicely braised in the broth to absorb the flavor well."


When I had my first mouthful, I was equally impressed and totally understand why there is always a constant queue at this stall. The same customer said, "If you come at 12 pm, the queue is really very long but not so now as lunch hour is almost over." The prawns tasted relatively fresh and the chilli though not too spicy but it actually enhanced the flavor. 

It is definitely better than the Yang Zhou Hokkien Sotong Mee at Jalan Bukit Merah. I would think this is easier one of the better Fried Hokkien Mee that I have eaten so far. It is definitely worth traveling to this secluded hawker centre for this Fried Hokkien Mee and I am likely to come back for their Fried Kway Teow.

          Buang Kesempatan, Penyebab Ginting Gagal Juara Singapore Open 2019      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Singapura - Anthony Sinisuka Ginting mengaku membuang kesempatan untuk meraih podium juara Singapore Open 2019. Setelah bermain selama satu jam 13 menit, tunggal putra Indonesia harus mengakui keunggulan Kenta Momota dari Jepang.

Menghadapi Momota di final Singapore Open 2019, Anthony tampil penuh percaya diri pada game pertama. Ia memenangkan game ini dengan skor meyakinkan 21-10.

Memasuki game kedua, pertandingan berlangsung lebih ketat. Tapi, Anthony sempat unggul lima poin untuk memimpin 16-11. Sayang, ia kemudian harus menyerahkan game ini ke Momota setelah berbalik kalah 19-21.

"Di poin kritis, saya nggak bisa menggunakan kesempatan. Nggak tepat cara mainnya. Dari kondisi lapangan menang angin, mau nggak mau inisiatif menyerangnya lebih banyak. Tapi, di game kedua akhir dia lebih antisipasi mainnya," papar Anthony soal kesempatan untuk juara Singapore Open 2019.

 

Antiklimaks

Pada game penentu, Anthony membawa angin segar saat unggul 11-7 dan 12-8. Namun, di luar dugaan Momota menyalip skor dengan merebut sembilan angka.

Anthony pun tertinggal 12-17. Setelah itu, Anthony tak bisa bicara banyak. Ia terus berada di bawah Momota hingga menyerah 13-21.

"Pada game ketiga, saya berusaha mengambil poin sebanyak-banyaknya karena lapangannya enak buat kami. Saat interval juga sempat leading juga. Tetapi pas pindah lapangan, mungkin Momota juga lebih antisipasi lagi, sama seperti di game kedua akhir tadi," tutup Anthony.

Hasil Anthony menyamai pencapaian pasangan ganda putra, Hendra Setiawan/Mohammad Ahsan yang juga menjadi runner up di turnamen ini.

 

 

Hasil lengkap final Singapore Open 2019:

Tunggal Putri: Tai Tzu Ying (Taiwan) vs Nozomi Okuhara (Jepang) 21-19, 21-15

Ganda Campuran: Dechapol Puavaranukroh/Sapsiree Taerattanachai (Thailand) vs Tan Kian Meng/Lai Pei Jing (Malaysia) 21-14, 21-6

Ganda Putri: Mayu Matsutomo/Wakana Nagahara (Jepang) vs Kim Hye Jeong/Kong Hee Yong (Korea) 21-17, 22-20

Ganda Putra: Takeshi Kamura/Keigo Sonoda (Jepang) vs Hendra Setiawan/Mohammad Ahsan (Indonesia) 21-13, 19-21, 21-17

Tunggal Putra: Kento Momota (Jepang) vs Anthony Sinisuka Ginting (Indonesia) 10-21, 21-19, 21-13


          Hendra / Ahsan Akui Pasangan Jepang Lebih Unggul di Final Singapore Open      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Singapura - Hendra Setiawan / Mohammad Ahsan harus puas menjadi runner up Singapore Open 2019. Ganda putra Indonesia itu harus mengakui keunggulan Takeshi Kamura / Keigo Sonoda dari Jepang.

Dalam laga final Singapore Open 2019 di Singapore Indoor, Minggu (14/3/2019), Hendra / Ahsan menyerah lewat laga rubber game selama 51 menit. Juara All England 2019 itu kalah 13-21, 21-19, dan 17-21.

"Pertama, kami mengucap syukur dulu, Alhamdulillah bisa ke final," kata Ahsan usai pertandingan seperti dikutip dari Badminton Indonesia.

"Kami sudah berusaha sebaik mungkin, tapi mereka lebih siap dan lebih unggul di pertandingan kali ini," tambah Ahsan soal laga final Singapore Open 2019.

Hendra / Ahsan dan Kamura / Sonoda sebelumnya sudah empat kali berhadapan dengan tiga kali menang. Pertemuan terakhir terjadi di semifinal All England 2019. Hendra/Ahsan menang 21-19 dan 21-16 ketika itu.

Pada game pertama, perolehan angka Hendra / Ahsan tertinggal cukup jauh. Akan tetapi, game kedua berlangsung lebih ketat.

Setelah tertinggal 8-11, Hendra / Ahsan melesat meraih delapan angka sehingga skor menjadi 16-11. Kamura / Sonoda sempat memperkecil ketertinggalannya, namun akhirnya Hendra/Ahsan berhasil mengamankan kemenangan.

Sayangnya di game penentu, setelah kejar mengejar angka, Hendra / Ahsan akhirnya menyerah 17-21. "Di game kedua, kami dapat serangan yang pas jadi bisa dapat beberapa poin berurutan," ucap Hendra.

 

Evaluasi

"Tapi di game ketiganya, mereka lebih siap lagi buat no lobnya. Mereka memang lebih unggul dari kami. Pastinya masih banyak yang harus diperbaiki. Kedepannya nanti akan kami evaluasi lagi setelah sampai di Jakarta," pungkas Hendra.

Gà nướng đồng quê

That butterflied chicken might look a bit odd, but it was the signature item at this place (5 Changi Business Park Central 1 #B1-26, 6443-1261), and it was much better than I thought it would be. It had a nice char-grilled aroma and skin that went nicely with a dip in that brown herbal salt mixture, making for a decent deal at only S$18.80 (US$13.90). Granted, the breast meat was a bit dry, and they should use a smaller-sized rice paper. But that clear plastic water/paper contraption was certainly more elegant than the spray bottle that Wrap & Roll would provide.
