Standoff at Scarborough Shoal | 101 East
The South China Sea is a strategically important and resource-rich area in Asia. Around half of the world's merchant fleets pass through every year carrying an estimated $5 trillion worth of trade. The area is also believed to contain valuable oil and gas deposits. And ownership is hotly contested. There are ongoing territorial disputes between Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and China. One of the most well-known is the Spratly Islands' hydrocarbon deposits valued at $26.3 trillion. The latest tension is at the Scarborough Shoal, a small cluster of uninhabitable islands which lies about 220km off the coast of the Philippines and falls under its exclusive economic zone according to international maritime law. But China also claims ownership despite its nearest coastline being 900km away. The Scarborough Shoal has valuable resources including fishing, shipping routes and potentially enormous oil and gas deposits. In early April, the Philippines' naval forces intercepted eight Chinese fishing vessels in the Scarborough Shoal. They found large numbers of illegally-fished turtles, baby sharks, clams and corals on board. They tried to arrest the poachers but were stopped by the arrival of two Chinese maritime ships leading to a two-month standoff. The David and Goliath-style situation has forced the Philippines, along with other smaller Asian countries, to work together on joint security. It has also pushed them to cement military ties with the US and Australia. After more than two decades of double-digit increases in defence spending, China now has the largest fleet of advanced warships, submarines and long strike aircraft in Asia. The Philippines is working hard to get support from allies such as Japan and the US to help it build up its military capabilities. But months of simmering tension between both sides over the disputed territory is threatening to exact a heavy toll on Philippines' economy and is damaging vital tourism and agricultural sectors. Business communities in the Philippines are concerned the ongoing standoff threatens trade relations and investments after China tightened regulations on banana imports from the Philippines and several Chinese tour groups cancelled visits to the Philippines. Energy and infrastructure projects have also been put on hold. As China flexes its economic and military muscle across the Asia Pacific region, 101 East asks if this escalation is a threat to peace and stability.

🇮🇩 Indonesia's green information gap - The Listening Post (Feature)
With temperatures and sea levels rising alarmingly, putting 2,000 of the country's islands and 42 million households at risk of drowning by 2050, one would expect environmental news to top the agenda in Indonesia. But when you look at mainstream media there, it is hard to find stories that go beyond catastrophes like forest fires or mudslides, examining who and what is behind them. In 2015, huge fires swept through Indonesia's rainforests. About 2.6 million hectares of forest (an area roughly the size of Rwanda) was set aflame to clear space for palm oil plantations. The fires produced - in just three weeks - more greenhouse gases than Germany does in an entire year. Forest fires have become an annual occurrence in Indonesia, and still, the country's media seldom devote the column inches and airtime needed to explore the causes behind them. "It is easier for journalists to cover sports or the economy, because they have scores and numbers," explains Harry Surjadi, head of the Indonesian Society of Environmental Journalists. "Those stories are much easier to write than environmental stories, where journalists have to understand biology, ecology, waste and chemistry." When they do cover forest fires or the effects of mining, they leave out "subjects like 'water poisoned due to toxic waste or air pollution' because they don't know enough about those subjects", points out Merah Ismail, campaign manager for JATAM NGO, a mining advocacy network. Crucial to how Indonesia's news outlets cover the environment - and its destruction - is the shape of the media landscape. Most of the country's TV channels and radio stations are owned by conglomerates, many of which have big stakes in agribusiness and mining companies. "Media owners are often connected to owners of extractive industry companies, like mining or palm oil, which are among the greatest contributors to deforestation, environmental damage and air pollution," says Sapariah Saturi, senior editor for Mongabay-Indonesia. In September 2015, Indonesian President Joko Widodo announced that the country would cut the growth of greenhouse gas emissions by 29 percent in 2030. The announcement was covered across Indonesia's news outlets, but, since then, there's been little follow up on what progress there has been or whether there is a plan at all to achieve this target. What little media debate and coverage there are, of efforts to protect Indonesia's rainforests, are often framed in terms of a stark choice - between the economy and the environment. "I have learned that only when the media care and do good reporting on the environment can there be any influence on policy to protect it," says Surjadi. "So, unless there are more journalists writing about green issues, climate change will not be stopped." With the lines between journalism and activism blurred, we look at how the Indonesian media toes the line between the need for economic development and environmental sustainability.

The Third Industrial Revolution: A Radical New Sharing Economy
The global economy is in crisis. The exponential exhaustion of natural resources, declining productivity, slow growth, rising unemployment, and steep inequality, forces us to rethink our economic models. Where do we go from here? In this feature-length documentary, social and economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin lays out a road map to usher in a new economic system. A Third Industrial Revolution is unfolding with the convergence of three pivotal technologies: an ultra-fast 5G communication internet, a renewable energy internet, and a driverless mobility internet, all connected to the Internet of Things embedded across society and the environment. This 21st century smart digital infrastructure is giving rise to a radical new sharing economy that is transforming the way we manage, power and move economic life. But with climate change now ravaging the planet, it needs to happen fast. Change of this magnitude requires political will and a profound ideological shift.

New photos show China is nearly done with its Militarization of South China Sea
Aerial photographs obtained by the Inquirer from a source show that China is almost finished transforming seven reefs claimed by the Philippines in the Spratly archipelago into island fortresses, in a bid to dominate the heavily disputed South China Sea. Most of the photos, taken between June and December 2017, were snapped from an altitude of 1,500 meters and they showed the reefs that had been transformed into artificial islands in the final stages of development as air and naval bases. Shown the photographs, Eugenio Bito-onon Jr., the former mayor of Kalayaan town on Pag-asa Island, the largest Philippine-occupied island in the Spratlys and internationally known as Thitu Island, recognized new facilities on the man-made isles. ‘Photos are authentic’ Bito-onon saw the construction going on when he flew over the islands with foreign journalists nearly two years ago. “These photos are authentic. I flew with HBO before the elections in 2016. We got repeated warnings from the Chinese because we were circling over the islands. I see there are now additional vertical features,” Bito-onon said. Within Philippines’ EEZ One of the reefs, Panganiban, lies within the Philippines’ 370-kilometer exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the South China Sea. The UN-backed Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague has ruled that Panganiban Reef belongs to the Philippines. In a report on China’s militarization of the South China Sea last December, US think tank Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (Amti) said Kagitingan Reef had the most construction in 2017, with work spanning 110,000 square meters. The runways for the three biggest reefs—Kagitingan, Panganiban and Zamora—appeared either completed or almost ready for use. Lighthouses, radomes, communication facilities, hangars and multistory buildings had also been built on the artificial island Military ships Three military ships capable of transporting troops and weapons were docked at Panganiban Reef in a picture taken last Dec. 30. These were two transport ships (Hull Nos. 830 and 831) and an amphibious transport dock (989). The Luoyang (527), a Type 053H3 Jiangwei II class missile frigate, was spotted about a kilometer from Zamora Reef last Nov. 15. This type of war vessel has two quadruple launchers installed amidships. It also has a Type 79A dual-barrel 100 mm gun installed on the bow deck, capable of firing 15-kilogram shells at a rate of 18 rounds per minute over a range of 22 km. Status quo deal ignored The extent of development on the reefs show that China has gone ahead with building military outposts in the Spratlys despite a 2002 agreement with the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) not to change any features in the sea. At the same time, China has softened the impact of its military buildup with pledges of investments to the Philippines and talk of a framework for negotiating with Asean a code of conduct for the management of rival claims in the strategic waterway. Besides the Philippines and China, Brunei, Malaysia and Vietnam also claim parts of the Spratly archipelago. Taiwan is a sixth claimant. North Korea’s missile and atomic weapon tests also helped draw international attention away from China’s construction activities on the reefs, although recent pronouncements from Malacañang indicated the Philippines was not exactly unaware of the Chinese military buildup in the Spratlys. What’s at stake If the Philippines does not assert its legal victory, it stands to lose 80 percent of its EEZ in the South China Sea, covering 381,000 square kilometers of maritime space, including the entire Recto Bank, or Reed Bank, and part of the Malampaya gas field off Palawan, as well as all of the fishery, oil and gas and mineral resources there, Carpio said. “My estimate is 40 percent of water in the Philippines is in the West Philippine Sea, so that’s 40 percent of the fish that we can catch and we will lose that as a food source,” he said. “Malampaya supplies 40 percent of the energy requirement of Luzon.

Anti Graft Agency Probes Corruption Allegations against Chinese State Owned Firm
Description: A former mainland Chinese journalist offers what he says is evidence of corruption against China Resources, a large state-owned firm, to a Hong Kong investigation. Story: Former Chinese mainland journalist Li Jianjun on Monday offered up what he says is evidence of corruption by Chinese state-owned giant China Resources Power Holdings Co Ltd regarding a recent deal with shareholders. Li Jianjun travelled to Hong Kong to file a complaint against the Hong Kong-listed company at the city's Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC). Another reporter from China's Xinhua news agency also posted corruption allegations on his microblog. [Li Jianjun, Former Journalist]: "I believe more shocking inside stories will emerge because according to the preliminary evidence that I have, in the mine acquisition case of China Resources Power, they have created a capital black hole of at least four-billion dollars (25 billion yuan)." Six minority shareholders of the company involved in the deal filed a lawsuit on July 5 against former executives of China Resources Power. The lawsuit alleged that China Resources Power "suffered serious loss and damage" from its acquisition of coal mining assets in the northern province of Shanxi in 2010, according to a copy of the writ obtained by Reuters. The exploration licenses of some of the mines had expired at the time of the acquisition, which resulted in losses, the suit says, adding that executives had breached their duties. The shareholders demanded an unspecified amount of damages. China Resources Power says the Department of Land Resource of Shanxi Province issued the exploration permits on July 25 for two of the three coal mines to Shanxi Jinye Coal Coking Group Co. A permit for the other mine was obtained in April.

http://ThoriumRemix.com/ Thorium is an abundant material which can be transformed into massive quantities of energy. To do so efficiently requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kind we use today- Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses chemically stable molten salts. Such a reactor is called a "Molten Salt Reactor". Many different configurations are possible. Some of these configurations can harness Thorium very efficiently. This video explores the attributes of Molten Salt Reactors. Why are they compelling? And why do many people (including myself) see them as the only economical way of fully harnessing ALL our nuclear fuels... including Thorium. This video has been under development since 2012. I hope it conveys to you why I personally find Molten Salt Reactors so compelling, as do the many volunteers and supporters who helped create it. Much of the footage was shot by volunteers.

What's Hidden Beneath The Ice In Antarctica?
Why Are World Leaders Visiting Antarctica? Steve Quayle says people should take notice. Quayle explains, “What really is going on down there? Here is the billion dollar question, and probably the trillion dollar question: Why are the world’s religious leaders and the world’s most powerful leaders going to Antarctica? I don’t think the Russian Patriarch Kirill is going down there to meet penguins, with no disrespect meant. Someone or something has summoned the world’s leaders.” Quayle also says, “Most people don’t understand, and this is critical, the United States, in 1947, sent a war flotilla to the Antarctic under Admiral Byrd and it was called “Operation Highjump.” It was to seek out and destroy the hidden Nazi bases that intelligence agencies provided them the documentation for. It wasn’t a small thing. There were 13 ships and 4,700 men and state of the art U.S. weaponry. The bad news is we got our rear ends kicked. Russians were spying on us, and they had a video of our aircraft encountering flying saucers.” Fast forward to today, and Quayle contends, “Black physics is beyond the PhD level, and we are seeing this with CERN (European Council for Nuclear Research). What is so critical for people to understand is, as more activity takes place at CERN, the occult rituals associated with it are so in your face you can’t dismiss this stuff anymore as being the ranting’s of this fringe or that fringe. Something is happening, and the Antarctic is critical. It’s my contention that because of the advanced technology of the Third Reich . . . that they went under the ice, so to speak, and came into contact with beings, sentient beings that Wernher von Braun and others have made reference to many times before they passed away. So, all this is a matter of record. When you put all the records together, it points to this: There is some entity or group of entities that are thinking and have advanced technology and, basically, give orders to the religious and political leaders of our day.” https://usawatchdog.com/why-are-world-leaders-visiting-antarctica-steve-quayle/ List of Antarctic expeditions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Antarctic_expeditions (Take it with a grain of salt) Content in video thanks to: ....................................................................

Malaysian troops backed by fighter jets have attacked an armed Filipino group, trying to end a standoff on Borneo island after violence that killed at least 27 people and sparked fears of broader insecurity in the resource-rich region. Planes bombed the area in eastern Sabah state on Tuesday for more than 30 minutes before hundreds of ground troops moved in to search for around 180 members of the self-proclaimed Royal Sulu Army believed to be hiding near a coastal palm-oil plantation, Malaysian officials said. The armed group, who hail from the southern Philippines, landed in a coastal village in Sabah on February 9 to claim the territory as their own, citing ownership documents from the late 1800s. Police inspector general Ismail Omar told reporters the mission's goals had been accomplished and there were no Malaysian casualties, without giving further details. Relatives of the group who have been in touch with the gunmen by phone from Manila said they had survived the bombardment. "They are safe, they are intact," Abraham Idjirani, a spokesman for the group, told Philippine television. Political crisis The violence has sparked a political crisis ahead of elections in Malaysia as well as the Philippines. Both governments say they are investigating allegations of opposition involvement. Dozens of people have been protesting outside the Malaysian embassy in the Philippines capital Manila in support of the group in Sabah. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, who faces a tough election within weeks, has come under pressure to take a firm stance against the group, which arrived by boat about three weeks ago claiming to be descendants of the southern Philippines' sultanate of Sulu. The insecurity has disrupted operations in Sabah's huge palm oil industry and prolonged trouble could dampen growing investor interest in energy and infrastructure projects in the state, although the main oil fields are far from the trouble. Oil majors such as ConocoPhillips and Shell have poured in billions of dollars to develop oil and gas fields in Sabah. Chinese companies have been investing in hydro-power and coal mining. Two policemen were killed along with 12 fighters when Malaysian security forces tried to tighten a cordon around the group on Friday, sparking more violence over the weekend. "The longer this invasion lasts, it is clear to the authorities that the invaders do not intend to leave Sabah," Najib said on Tuesday, adding that negotiations with the estimated 100 to 300 members of the group had gone nowhere. "The government must take action to safeguard the dignity and sovereignty of the country as required by the people." The violence presents Najib with a security headache that could delay an election that must be held by June, adding to nervousness among investors over what could be the country's closest ever polls. Centuries-old claim The Royal Sulu Army are demanding an increased payment from Malaysia for their claim as the rightful owners of Sabah. The Malaysian government continues to pay the Kiram clan of Sulu a supposed annual rent of $1,500 for the use of more than 73,000 square kilometres of land in Sabah. Malaysia has refused their demands and, along with the Philippine government, has urged the group to return home. The violence has sparked a political crisis ahead of elections for both the Philippine and Malaysian governments and raised concerns of instability in resource-rich Sabah state. The crisis also comes a crucial stage of peace negotiations arranged by Malaysia between the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, the largest Muslim rebel group in the southern Philippines. The group has ignored appeals from Aquino to leave Sabah or face prosecution at home on charges of triggering armed conflict.

Better than Sleeping Pills: Natural Remedy to Sleep Better
Are you having trouble getting a good night’s rest? We all do at times. With all the stress around us, it can be hard to fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up feeling rested. Stress and electromagnetic frequencies from cellphones, computers, and other electronics don’t help the case. Bright lights, and other things, can change our nervous system and sleep hormones, and lessen how much good sleep we get. When you don’t get enough sleep, you lose out on what your body can do to work properly. Your cognitive thinking skills get worse, your motor skills slow down, your energy drops, and you’re at more risk for diseases and health conditions like obesity, diabetes, and cancer. You’ll feel better, work better, and block disease by getting at least eight hours of sleep each night. The easiest thing to do is grab a sleeping pill, but is that a good idea? It may work for a little while, but it’s really harming your body’s health and natural abilities. Sleeping pills can come along with dizziness, constipation, stomach pain, a hard time paying attention, memory problems, and harm to the central nervous system. If you do not want the bad things that come with sleeping pills, what can you do? The answer is banana cinnamon tea. Using the soothing value of banana, the banana peel, and cinnamon is a great way to push insomnia and other sleeping disorders aside. Bananas are full of potassium and magnesium. Most people do not know that the banana peel has even more potassium and magnesium than the banana, and they just throw it away. Not anymore! With this simple recipe, you can get the help from the potassium and magnesium in the banana peel. Potassium and magnesium are helpful to the nervous system and are great for soothing the muscles. In fact, magnesium is the most important mineral to ease muscles and can lessen muscle cramps and other aches and pains. Cinnamon is great because it evens out blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels are even, your hormones can work in a way that lets you sleep better. If your blood sugar levels are off, then you may have energy at night, or be tired during the day. Here’s the recipe: Ingredients: 1 organic banana (with peel) 1 small pot of water A sprinkle of cinnamon (if you’d like) Step 1: Cut off both ends of the banana (top and bottom) Step 2: Put the banana into a pot of boiling water. It’s even better if the water is spring water or filtered in some way. Boil it for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle some cinnamon in the water as well. If you’d like to add some stevia for sweetening, do so. Stevia helps to even out blood sugar levels, and will not raise blood sugar levels before bed. Step 3: Add more cinnamon if you’d like, and enjoy!

🇺🇦 The Oligarchs - Al Jazeera Investigations
Aljazeera’s Investigative Unit unravels a high-stakes international plot hatched by powerful Eastern European oligarchs to make millions of dollars from a crooked deal. According to one Ukrainian analyst: “It sounds like an agreement between criminal bosses. You can sign it with your blood.” The scheme involves using a web of offshore companies and international lawyers to raid US$160 million dollars under the noses of the authorities. The money is effectively being stolen for a second time… the funds were initially frozen by Ukraine’s courts after its former president, Viktor Yanukovych, was discovered to have emptied the country’s treasury. The Oligarchs include an exiled gas billionaire guarded by Russian special forces, a Moscow property magnate and an Olympic show jumper on the run from Ukrainian authorities. The investigation shines light on the ever shifting battle between the oligarchs and global financial regulators.

Dozens of students clashed with police in Jakarta following the announcement, while students elsewhere in the capital burned tyres and wood, according to local radio reports. There were no immediate reports of casualties or arrests. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono warned earlier this month that budget-busting subsidies, which have for years enabled motorists to fill up for roughly 1.80 US dollars a gallon, would have to be drastically slashed. Most people realise he had little choice, but that has not stopped thousands of students from taking to the streets in near-daily rallies this week, saying the poor would be hit the hardest. Speaking at a news conference on Friday, the Energy Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro said gas prices were being boosted 33 percent to 2.40 US dollars a gallon. Diesel oil jumped 27 percent to 2.204 US dollars a gallon. And kerosene, used primarily for cooking, 25 percent to 1.00 US dollar. "The increase of global crude oil prices has resulted in the much bigger needs for certain fuel to be subsidised and this has burdened our state budget," he said. "That is why we need to adjust the fuel sale prices," he added. This is the third time Yudhoyono has raised fuel prices since he was elected president in 2004, defying protests and winning praise from international donors. To cushion the blow, the government has provided direct cash payments to the poor - a policy it said on Friday it would repeat.

The South China Sea: Troubled Waters
Bordered by ten nations and including some of the world's most important shipping lanes and fisheries, the South China Sea is a vital region. Critically important mineral resources, including oil, are thought to be there in large quantities as well. The Chinese have long laid claim to nearly the entire South China Sea. That claim is contested by many nations and in some instances the conflict has turned violent. This summer the United States entered the fray. In July, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, "The United States has a national interest in freedom of navigation, open access to Asia's maritime commons, and respect for international law in the South China Sea." This comment, made at a meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations' (ASEAN) regional forum held in Hanoi, triggered a vigorous response from Chinese authorities. Chinese authorities argue that they and other nations in the region can work out their differences on a bilateral, nation to nation basis. They say that the U.S. is intruding into the discussion and attempting to make rights and use of the South China Sea an international issue. As Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi put it, "What will be the consequences to if this issue is turned into an international or multilateral one? It will only make matters worse and the resolution more difficult." Classroom use of this video is permitted. We would appreciate feedback from viewers.

Arrivals for OPEC meeting
1. Sign outside El Mitak residence where OPEC summit will be held 2. Foyer pans to media working 3. Close up journalist 4. SOUNDBITE: (French) Chakib Khelil, Algerian oil minister "This is an extraordinary meeting of OPEC that was decided on the December 4th meeting in Vienna. This meeting will discuss problems in the stability of oil prices in the second and third quarter, in the second quarter of this year there could be a surplus production of 2.5 (m) million barrels a day. One has to take into account that the production quota in OPEC countries has passed 1.8 (m) million barrels a day so there is an imbalance which means the prices will fall. We don't want prices to fall any lower than our price of our interval price which is 20 dollars per barrel. So it is a very, very difficult decision that will need a huge consensus in order to determine at what level we need to produce in order to stabilise the prices between 22 and 28 dollars a day." 5. Media waiting outside 6. Kuwaiti oil minister coming out surrounded by people 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Ahmad Fahad , Kuwait oil minister Question: "How much do you think needs to be taken off the market to stabilise prices?" Answer: "I think we have to think between one million and one million and a half." Question: "Do you think that decision will be taken at this meeting or do you believe it will be rolled over?" Answer: "I think we have to take a decision in this meeting." Question : "Will that be the ceiling or production?" Answer:"The over-production." Question: "Do you believe a decision will be made now to roll over and then meet again in March? Answer: Yes, we have to take it now." 8. Various of Saudi Oil Minister, Ali al-Naimi Ibrahim, leaving building STORYLINE: OPEC members have started to arrive in Algeria for a key summit aimed at stalling a sharp drop in prices. Representatives of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries were gathering in Algiers to discuss what action to take to try to keep crude prices from tumbling during the April-June quarter. OPEC's 11 members pump about a third of the world's oil. OPEC fears that global demand for oil will decline by as much as 2.5 (m) million barrels a day during the second quarter, but its members are currently producing about 1.5 (m) million barrels a day above their output ceiling. In recent months, this excess output was not a problem because prices were high. Demand, especially from China, has exceeded expectations, and the market's uncertainty about future crude exports from Iraq has helped underpin the market. However, prices have eased somewhat since January, with OPEC's benchmark blend of crudes at 28.20 US dollars a barrel on Friday compared to OPEC's targeted range of 22-28 US dollars a barrel. Algeria's Oil Minister Chakib Khelil said OPEC must "definitely" take action to prevent a further, substantial decrease in prices. He noted that overproduction was of particular concern. Kuwaiti Oil Minister Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah said his country would like OPEC to cut 2.5 (m) million barrels per day from its production quotas, 1.5 (m) million that currently exceeds quotas and then, in March, an additional one (m) million from the quotas themselves OPEC is haunted by the consequences of its decision in December 1997 to increase production just before a financial crisis in Asia that sent oil prices plummeting to US 10 dollars a barrel. The group has intensified its efforts to micromanage production, and its delegates met seven times in the last year alone.

China to lay off 1.8 million workers in its Coal and Steel Industry
http://www.illuminatisilver.com http://www.facebook.com/illuminatisilver China to lay off 1 8 million workers in its Coal and Steel Industry Today is Monday 29th February 2016 and we are briefly commenting on a Reuters Report out today highlighting that China plans to lay off 1.8 million workers in its Coal and Steel Industry. Yin Weimin, the Minister for Human Resources and Social Security, told a news conference that 1.3 million workers in the coal sector could lose their jobs, plus 500,000 from the steel sector. China's coal and steel sectors employ about 12 million workers, according to data published by the National Bureau of Statistics. These 1.8 million jobs represent approximately 15% of the workforce and it’s aimed to reduce industrial over-capacity. The central government will allocate 100 billion yuan ($15.27 billion) over the next two years to relocate these workers. The world's second-largest economy grew 6.9% in 2015, the weakest in 25 years, and the government aims to achieve economic growth of between 6.5- 6.7% in 2016. In 2015, the contribution from the services sector to GDP climbed to 50.5% surpassing the 50% level for the first time, and showing China’s intent to move to a more services based economy. As we stated in previous videos, the economic down-turn is real, and China should be watched closely. This is yet another indication that all is not well with the Chinese economy, and if, as many believe, the Government figures are, let’s just say ‘not as accurate as they could be’, its position is far worse than suggested. If this malaise permeates other sectors it could very well suggest that the Industrial demand for silver may not look too bright in the short term.

CHINA vs JAPAN: Territorial Dispute Could Lead To Violent Conflict. Even WW3
CHINA vs JAPAN: Territorial Dispute Could Lead To Violent Conflict. Even WW3 A territorial dispute between China and Japan could spark a "violent conflict," US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said. The US also inked a missile defense deal with Tokyo likely to anger Beijing, while mass anti-Japanese protests grip China. "I am concerned that when these countries engage in provocations of one kind or another over these various islands, that it raises the possibility that a misjudgment on one side or the other could result in violence, and could result in conflict," Panetta said. He also warned that Beijing and Tokyo should put an end to provocations or risk a "potentially expanding" conflict. Following the diplomatic meeting with Panetta, Japanese Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba said that Washington had agreed that the Senkaku islands, claimed by both Japan and China, are covered by a US-Japan security treaty. In the 1960 treaty, the US committed to aid the Japanese in the event of an attack on the nation's territory. "I did not bring up the topic today, but it is mutually understood between Japan and the United States that [the islands] are covered by the treaty," Gemba said after the meeting on Monday. Washington previously claimed that the US would not take sides in the territorial dispute over the archipelago in the East China Sea. The US also signed an agreement with Japan on Monday to build a second missile defense radar installation on Japanese territory, aimed at countering North Korea. China may view the move as a provocation. The Senkaku islands -- known as Diaoyu to the Chinese -- are uninhabited, but are believed to contain rich mineral deposits and are located on important shipping lanes. Violent protests rocked China after Japan announced last week that it had purchased three of the islands from a private owner. In the latest bout of demonstrations, anti-Japanese activists attacked Panasonic factories in the eastern city of Quingdao. Protesters burned Japanese flags and targeted Japanese-made cars. In response to the wave of unrest, Panasonic temporarily ceased operations in China. In addition, Canon announced that it would suspend operations for employees' safety. Toyota Motor Corp also said that it was affected by the anti-Japanese unrest, citing a suspected arson attack on one of its factories in the eastern Shandong province. 'A decade of stagnation' In a worrying escalation of the standoff around 1000 Chinese fishing boats are heading to waters near the disputed Senaku Islands, the state --run China National Radio reported, in what may be an additional counter measure over the Japanese nationalization of the isles. The 1000 fishing boats may be joined by six Chinese surveillance ships, which have been stationed nearby since Friday. On Monday, the Chinese government threatened that Japan could suffer from another "lost decade" if relations between the two countries deteriorate further. "How could be it be that Japan wants another lost decade, and could even be prepared to go back by two decades," state newspaper the People's Daily said in a front-page article. China "has always been extremely cautious about playing the economic card," it said. The paper claimed that China was prepared to "take up the battle," should tensions persist. James Corbett, an independent journalist based in Japan, said that the Japanese government's move to sign a missile defense deal with the US will have "a very destabilizing effect on the region."

Kings of Cannabis (Full Length Documentary)
Watch our new Weed Travel show, Blunt Reviews: https://vice.video/2L69pT0 Check out other videos from Weediquette here: http://bit.ly/1iVLbL7 You might not know who Arjan Roskam is, but you've probably smoked his weed. Arjan's been breeding some of the most famous marijuana strains in the world—like White Widow, Super Silver Haze, and many others—for over 20 years. In 1992 he opened his first coffee shop in Amsterdam and has since crafted his marijuana-breeding skills into a market-savvy empire known as Green House Seed Company, which rakes in millions of dollars a year. He's won 38 Cannabis Cups and has dubbed himself the King of Cannabis. VICE joins Arjan and his crew of strain hunters in Colombia to look for three of the country's rarest types of weed, strains that have remained genetically pure for decades. In grower's terms, these are called landraces. We trudge up mountains and crisscross military checkpoints in the country's still-violent south, and then head north to the breathtaking Caribbean coast. As the dominoes of criminalization fall throughout the world, Arjan is positioned to be at the forefront of the legitimate international seed trade.

Economy of the Philippines
The Economy of the Philippines is the 40th largest in the world, according to 2013 International Monetary Fund statistics, and is also one of the emerging markets in the world. The Philippines is considered as a newly industrialized country, which has been transitioning from being one based on agriculture to one based more on services and manufacturing. According to the World Bank ICP 2011, the estimated 2011 GDP (purchasing power parity) was $543.7 billion. Goldman Sachs estimates that by the year 2050, the Philippines will be the 14th largest economy in the world, Goldman Sachs also included the Philippines in its list of the Next Eleven economies. According to HSBC, the Philippine economy will become the 16th largest economy in the world, 5th largest economy in Asia and the largest economy in the Southeast Asian region by 2050. Primary exports include semiconductors and electronic products, transport equipment, garments, copper products, petroleum products, coconut oil, and fruits. Major trading partners include the United States, Japan, China, Singapore, South Korea, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Germany, Taiwan, and Thailand. The Philippines has been named as one of the Tiger Cub Economies together with Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. It is currently one of Asia's fastest growing economies. However, major problems remain, mainly having to do with alleviating the wide income and growth disparities between the country's different regions and socioeconomic classes, reducing corruption, and investing in the infrastructure necessary to ensure future growth.

World's Best School Lunch ★ ONLY in JAPAN
Japan is the king of SCHOOL LUNCHES and in this episode, I find the answer to why -- while eating a lot of Japanese school food. ★ Watch the latest episode on Japanese Prison Food: https://youtu.be/S2UBy8bkgyE School lunches in Japan are world famous for being super healthy and delicious. With extremely low childhood obesity rates, many have turned to Japan for solutions to feed their school aged kids in the cafeteria. But that's part of the answer. Japanese elementary school kids don't even eat in a cafeteria. They eat in the classroom ー with the teacher. It is not possible to eat inside a Japanese elementary school (if you're a tourist) but there is a place in Tokyo where you can try nearly everything. Japanese parents take their preschool kids here to try it as well as older people coming back for a taste of nostalgia. This magical place is called KYUSHOKU TOBAN (給食当番 ) and it's a place where you can not only try some of Japan's regional school foods from all over the country, you can also do it in an elementary school classroom! The 2nd floor is a near exact replication. If you've ever wanted to be an exchange student in Japan -- or return to 5th grade, here's your chance. Unique Japanese School Lunch MENU Items: ★ AGEPAN: Fried baked bun covered in sugar and kinako (or other toppings like cinnamon or cocoa) ★ SOFTMEN: A special noodle served only in schools. It comes wrapped in plastic and should be dipped in meat sauce or stew. ★ WHALE: This was served in schools a long time ago because whale was more available and much cheaper than beef, chicken or pork. Today, it's no longer served in school but you can try some at izakayas around Tokyo and here at this restaurant. Whale is rarely eaten these days since the price of other fish and meats is significantly cheaper. WHY ARE JAPANESE SCHOOL LUNCHES SO AMAZING? The program is highly regulated with calorie intake and nutritional value set for each scheduled meal. Ingredients are usually local and meals are prepared from scratch. There are no cafeterias in Japanese elementary schools. (They exist in high schools.) Kids eat their lunches in the classroom with the teacher. They learn about nutrition and food responsibility in a hands on setting. Milk is served with every meal. All students eat the same meal. If a student hates an item, they have to stay and finish it. Parents pay monthly for the school lunches, about $40 to $60 a month. The Japanese School Lunch program started in 1954. After World War 2, resources were scarce and the government tried to make sure every child had a balanced meal. Before World War 2, kids brought their own bento. The usual school food back then was the NORIBEN, rice, bonito fish flakes and roasted seaweed on a metal lunch box. Milk was a luxury item and there were few vegetables.

He joins Porter and Buck to tell you what shaped his life and what gave him the drive to become a world-wide entrepreneurial success. Robert talks about failing fast to meet your goals, why he volunteered to fight in Vietnam, and the one Rich Dad edge he uses for investing in real estate that can produce “infinite returns.” Buck and Porter discuss why oil is getting more expensive, the insane saga of the FBI possibly spying on Donald Trump, and why Starbucks could be in for a rude awakening with their new business policy.

He's here to share his thoughts on why America's richest 1% just seem to be getting richer… and one thing that's more important than money. 2:21 Buck asks Porter why oil's getting more expensive. Porter's never asked Buck to read anything he's written before – but now he's pointing him to the July 2014 issue of his newsletter, and what he wrote about Devon Energy Company. "This letter alone is worth $100 or whatever to takes to get access to it." 08:15 After explaining why oil prices always rebound – and then crash and rebound again – Porter makes a prediction for oil prices over the next few years. 09:05 Porter doesn't mince words describing Starbucks's new policy of not requiring lingerers to buy anything: Disaster! "Starbucks used to be seen as a very upmarket place… now they're combining that with the economics of the local public library." 10:49 Porter asks Buck about the saga that just keeps getting more insane. "Was the FBI spying on the Trump campaign?" Buck reveals why the official line has gone from "There was no spying – you're crazy" to "Of course there was spying – we'd be crazy not to" in under a week. 14:21 Buck introduces Robert Kiyosaki author of the No. 1 personal finance book of all time, and Porter asks what led him to voluntarily abandon a high-paying job in 1969 to go fight in Vietnam. Robert shares why he joined the war, even though he was draft-exempt. 21:18 Porter asks Robert about the EST seminar he attended that shaped his life's goals and worldview and led to his success as an entrepreneur. Robert explains how his "Poor Dad" wondered why he would ever go to seminars, while his "Rich Dad" was a regular attendee. 26:19 Porter tells Robert about the most valuable method he learned from his financial mentor, Bill Bonner: accelerated failure. "It doesn't really matter whether you succeed or fail… but it does matter, if you're gonna fail, that you fail fast." 31:00 Robert reveals the tactic that gives him an edge in real estate investing: "My returns are always infinite." 33:32 As someone who's been dogged by controversy, Porter asks Robert about the controversy of his own ideas. "You say things like you shouldn't go to college, you tell people big educations don't make them smart… all of that is threatening and off-putting to a huge segment of the population." 42:29 Buck pulls a question out of the mailbag from Anthony S., who asks Porter who will be the next major company to file for bankruptcy.

Zoom of Clinton listening 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Hillary Rodham Clinton, United States Secretary of State: "And of course the government is acting after 27 years of conflict that undermined the fabric of society. Angola has accomplished not only a peaceful resolution but the reconciliation of its citizens, one with the other." 5. Clinton and dos Anjos at roundtable 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Hillary Rodham Clinton, United States Secretary of State: "We discussed the technical assistance and support the United States can provide Angola to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate against the effects of climate change." 7. Clinton with dos Anjos toasting at lunch 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Hillary Rodham Clinton, United States Secretary of State: ++SOUND QUALITY AS INCOMING++ "The partnership between USAID, Chevron and CLUSA (Cooperative League of the United States of America) represents a new approach to development assistance on the part of the Obama administration." 9. Clinton and Angolan FM witness signing of USAID-Chevron-CLUSA memorandum of understanding STORYLINE: United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrived in Angola on Sunday and encouraged the country's government to continue reforms and pledged to boost trade ties with a major energy producer. Clinton, on the third leg of a seven-nation trip, came to the Angolan capital, Luanda, to reinforce America's presence in a country where it increasingly is competing for resources with China. Beijing has loaned Angola billions (b) of dollars in recent years without pressing reform. After meeting Foreign Minister Assuncao Afonso dos Anjos, Clinton urged the government to build on successful legislative elections held in 2008 - the first in 16 years - through presidential elections and dealing with the legacy of its 27-year civil war. A senior US aide said Clinton stressed the need for greater accountability and transparency in the petroleum sector, particularly with revenue from exports, which account for nearly 60 percent of the country's gross domestic product. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a private diplomatic exchange, said Clinton also encouraged the Angolans to explore renewable energy projects, particularly hydroelectricity. Clinton plans to meet Monday with President Eduardo dos Santos, who has ruled for 30 years and has been criticised for postponing a presidential vote that was scheduled for this year. Angola supplies vast amounts of petroleum and liquid natural gas to the US market and in June surpassed Nigeria as Africa's largest petroleum producer. Last year, Angola overtook Saudi Arabia as the leading source of crude oil for China. Clinton noted that the US and China were cooperating on how to ensure that investment in Africa's energy sector promoted development. US officials say Clinton's visit was intended to demonstrate the Obama administration's interest in keeping Washington in Africa's energy game as well as well cooperating with it on climate change. Later Sunday, Clinton witnessed the signing of a corporate responsibility agreement between US oil giant Chevron and the Angolan government that promotes small- and medium-scale farming. Despite its oil wealth, Angola is mired in poverty as a result of the destruction of most of the infrastructure during the war, which broke out after its 1975 independence from Portugal.

Philippines, China eye joint exploration in disputed waters
China and the Philippines are discussing joint mineral exploration in the South China Sea despite an ongoing territorial conflict over the strategic waterway, Manila's foreign secretary said Friday. The two countries, long embroiled in a dispute over their competing claims to the area, are hoping talks will open the door for them to jointly tap its resources, Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said. "We are pushing it aggressively because we need it," Cayetano told reporters, adding the countries would each form a working group to explore options for joint exploration. "Then we will find a framework under our constitution that will allow us... joint exploration," he said. "We both want it." The South China Sea is a major trading route and fishing ground believed to have vast mineral resources, and is also claimed by Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam, where the waters is known as the East Sea. Beijing asserts sovereignty over almost all of the area but in 2016 a U.N.-backed tribunal acting on a case brought by then-Philippine leader Benigno Aquino rejected its claims. Current president Rodrigo Duterte, who took office in mid-2016, has since alarmed defence analysts and lawyers by down-playing the Philippine claim and largely setting aside the ruling so as to accomodate China -- which is promising military and economic aid. But on Friday Cayetano said the Philippines would consult with "international legal experts" to make sure any accord would not hurt Philippine sovereign rights. "Whatever we do, it will not only (be) in accordance with Philippine law but also the UNCLOS," referring to the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea. He stressed the talks would only cover exploration, not actual development. "Right now, we have not (been) discussing developments. We are discussing exploration first. What's the use of the debate whether or not the constitution allows a joint development if we don't know if there is anything we can harvest," he said. As a model for the possible accord, Cayetano cited a tripartite deal between the oil companies of the Philippines, Vietnam and China for joint exploration of part of the South China Sea that was signed under the government of then-president Gloria Arroyo in 2005. However, an opposition group challenged the tripartite deal's legality in the Supreme Court in 2008 and a decision is still pending.

The Choice is Ours (2016) Official Full Version
https://www.thevenusproject.com Intro: 0:00 Part 1 6:16 Part 2 23:28 Part 3 47:03 Part 4 1:19:09 Produced/Directed by Roxanne Meadows and Joel Holt Script by Roxanne Meadows Editor Joel Holt, assisted by Roxanne Meadows & Nathanael Dinwiddie Original Score by Kat Epple This film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in. Although we refer to it as a civilization, it is anything but civilized. Visions of global unity & fellowship have long inspired humanity, yet the social arrangements up to the present have largely failed to produce a peaceful and productive world. While we appear to be technically advanced, our values and behaviors are not. The possibility of an optimistic future is in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas. The Choice Is Ours includes interviews with notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers exploring the difficulties we face. Part I provides an introduction and overview of cultural & environmental conditions that are untenable for a sustainable world civilization. It explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature” while demonstrating how environment shapes behavior. The science of behavior is an important - yet largely missing - ingredient in our culture. Part II questions the values, behaviors, and consequences of our social structures, and illustrates how our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. Critical consideration of the banking, media, and criminal justice systems reveals these institutions for what they really are: tools of social control managed by the established political and economic elite. If we stay the present course, the familiar cycles of crime, economic booms & busts, war, and further environmental destruction are inevitable. Part III explains the methods and potential of science. It proposes solutions that we can apply at present to eliminate the use of non-renewable sources of energy. It depicts the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture”, where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment. Part IV explains how it is not just architecture and a social structure that is in desperate need of change, but our values which have been handed down from centuries ago. They too need to be updated to our technological age, which has the potential to eliminate our scarcity-driven societies of today. Our problems are mostly of our own making, but we can still turn things around before the point of no return. It’s not too late for an optimistic outlook on the fantastic possibilities that lie before us. Jacque Fresco-Futurist, Industrial Designer, Social Engineer, Founder of The Venus Project Jeffrey A.

The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world.

US,China racing toward confrontation
The South China Sea dispute is eventually leading toward a potential military confrontation between China and the United States, a military analyst in Washington says. Michael Maloof, a former senior security policy analyst in the office of the US Secretary of Defense, made the remarks on Saturday during an interview with Press TV while commenting on US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter’s warning to China against developing man-made islands in the South China Sea.Speaking at a security conference in Singapore, Carter demanded China immediately stop developing islands in the South China Sea and accused it of acting “out of step with both the international rules and norms." The annual Shangri-La Dialogue was attended by defense ministers and high-ranking military officials from China, Europe and other Asia-Pacific countries.“The question of China’s ownership – if you can call it that - of the Spratly and other islands in the South China Sea is questionable,” Maloof said. “But on the other hand, they have a long history near those islands and on the islands, historically.” "In fact, they built a base on one of the shoals there. There is nothing in and of itself against that. The issue has to do with China is now saying they'll be no overflights, and that they will control all navigation into the South China Sea, and that's where the problem lies, and the United States and along with other countries such as Malaysia and the Philippines, even India all claim that China doesn’t have that right of claim,” he added.“The issue also has to do with mineral rights on the seabed and under the seabed, which is what China is looking for, because they are energy starved, and they are looking for new resources,” he continued.Washington accuses Beijing of undergoing a massive “land reclamation” program in the Spratly archipelago of the South China Sea, and says China’s territorial claims of the man-made islands could further militarize the region.The United States says its surveillance of China’s artificial islands indicates that Beijing has positioned weaponry on one of the islands it has built in the South China Sea. Citing unnamed US officials, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that the surveillance imagery detected two Chinese motorized artillery pieces on one of the islands developed almost one month ago. Beijing says it is determined to safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity in the South China Sea.“China is asserting itself militarily, and the fact that the United States is moving in military assets to reinforce navigation is OK, but if like [Ashton Carter] says they can't build a base, if then they can't do what they want to do on questionable ownership of islands then that's going a little too far and that's actually setting up a military confrontation,” Maloof said. "The Chinese have warned the United States that they are going to defend their right to do that. I doubt they will stop air flights and civilian ships, but the Chinese have raised the issue of posing potential confrontation with military vessels particularly from the United States. So inevitably what this is all leading to is a potential confrontation between China and the United States, militarily," he noted. A Chinese state-owned newspaper has warned that “a US-China war is inevitable in the South China Sea,” unless Washington stops demanding Beijing halt its construction projects there. “The intensity of the conflict will be higher than what people usually think of as ‘friction’,” The Global Times, an influential newspaper owned by the ruling Communist Party’s official newspaper The People’s Daily, said in an editorial Monday.

ch 16) A Peoples War
chapter 16: A People's History (Of The United States) Howard Zinn. ~ Chapter 16, "A People's War?", covers World War II, opposition to it, and the effects of the war on the people. Zinn, a veteran of the war himself, notes that "it was the most popular war the US ever fought," [p104] but states that this support may have been manufactured through the institutions of American society. He cites various instances of opposition to fighting (in some cases greater than those during World War I) as proof. Zinn also argues that the US's true intention was not fighting against systematic racism, since the US had this itself, such as with the Jim Crow laws (leading to opposition to the war from African-Americans). Another argument made by Zinn is that the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not necessary, as the U.S. government had already known that the Japanese were considering surrender beforehand. Other subjects from WWII covered include Japanese American internment and the bombing of Dresden. The chapter continues into the Cold War, which Zinn writes was used by the U.S. government to increase control over the American people (for instance, eliminating such radical elements as the Communist Party) and at the same time create a state of permanent war, which allowed for the creation of the military-industrial complex. Zinn believes this was possible because both conservatives and liberals willingly worked together in the name of anti-Communism. Also covered is US involvement in the Greek Civil War, the Korean War, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and the Marshall Plan.

President Park preps for impeachment trial before last pretrial hearing
Our top story this morning... is the last preparatory hearing Korea's Constitutional Court will hold today into the National Assembly's impeachment motion against President Park Geun-hye. Ahead of the hearing, President Park met with her lawyers,... fine-tuning strategies for the legal battle of her life. Song Ji-sun reports. The Constitutional Court will wrap up preparations for its trial on President Geun-hye's impeachment motion,... with the third and last pre-trial hearing set for Friday. After finalizing the organization of each side's arguments and issues,... the Constitutional Court will begin assessing evidence and question witnesses at next week's trial hearings. President Park for the first time, sat down with her entire team of lawyers at the presidential office of Cheong Wa Dae on Thursday..., to further discuss and prepare their strategies in defending her side against charges like power abuse and bribery. The president's lawyers are, in particular, carefully documenting the president's itinerary and whereabouts on the day of the Sewol-ho ferry disaster,... as requested by the court, with the impeachment motion charging her of breach of right to life and dereliction of duty. The court has also provided the prosecution's investigation records, both to the National Assembly's impeachment committee and the President's lawyers. The court hinted it is committed to proceed promptly on reaching a decision on this impeachment case, already setting during Tuesday's preparatory session the dates for the first two trial hearings in the first week of January.
