Limits on Rare Earth Exports Get China in Trade Dispute
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report , from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish The United States, the European Union and Japan have called for talks with China under the dispute settlement system of the World Trade Organization. They want to discuss China's export limits on rare earth metals and two other minerals. WTO rules give talks sixty days to work. If they do not settle the dispute, a WTO panel can then be requested to help reach a settlement.Rare earth metals are used in the manufacture of almost every high-technology device -- from mobile phones and computers to batteries for electric cars. And demand is only growing.China says it follows WTO rules in exporting the minerals. In twenty ten, China mined about one hundred thirty thousand metric tons of rare earth metals. That was about ninety-seven percent of world production. But information from China's government and the United States Geological Survey shows that China has reduced its export limits sharply in the past two years. Critics say this unfairly helps Chinese companies in the production of high-technology products. And, they say, it is a violation of World Trade Organization rules. President Obama explained why the United States was involved in the case. He said American manufacturers use rare earth materials to make high-tech products like advanced batteries. "We want our companies building those products right here in America," he said. To do that they need access to materials that China supplies. In the president's words, "If China would simply let the market work on its own, we'd have no objections." But he said Chinese policies "go against the very rules that China agreed to follow." China says it has restricted rare earth exports to meet needs at home. And it says its policy helps limit the environmental damage caused by over-mining. China now faces a slowing economy. In February, the nation had its biggest trade deficit in ten years. Experts expect China's central bank to increase the money supply to aid economic growth. At the same time, inflation remains a threat. On March fourteenth, Premier Wen Jiabao discussed the need for reform. China, in his words, "must continue to strike a balance between maintaining steady and robust economic development, making economic structural adjustments and managing inflationary expectations."

Understanding the National Debt and Budget Deficit
In which John discusses the US national debt, the federal budget deficit, plans for shrinking or eliminating the deficit, and tries to provide some context to the political rhetoric and statistics that are constantly thrown around in an election season. Along the way, I hope you'll understand why the United States' sovereign debt hasn't led us to an economic crisis, but also why budget deficits need to shrink in order to ensure that credit remains inexpensive and the US continues to enjoy the trust of the world economy. (Friendly reminder: Educational videos, by extensive precedent, are allowed to be longer than 4:00.) Here's why I think the gold standard is a bad idea: 1. By restricting money supply to the supply of gold, you risk shrinking the money supply just because of a shock leading to a disruption in supply from mining. This creates a lot of volatility in the money supply for no reason. 2. The gold standard limits a government's ability to respond to changes in the market, which can (and has) led to unescapable deflationary spirals. 3. Far from inspiring investor confidence, its implementation would crush it: http://www.ocregister.com/opinion/gold-369936-standard-money.html Posters and stuff: http://dftba.com My tumblr: http://fishingboatproceeds.tumblr.com My twitter: http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen HERE ARE A LOT OF LINKS TO NERDFIGHTASTIC THINGS: Shirts and Stuff: http://dftba.com/artist/30/Vlogbrothers Hank's Music: http://dftba.com/artist/15/Hank-Green John's Books: http://amzn.to/j3LYqo ====================== Hank's Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/hankgreen Hank's Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/hankimon Hank's tumblr: http://edwardspoonhands.tumblr.com John's Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen John's Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/johngreenfans John's tumblr: http://fishingboatproceeds.tumblr.com ====================== Other Channels Crash Course: http://www.youtube.com/crashcourse SciShow: http://www.youtube.com/scishow Gaming: http://www.youtube.com/hankgames VidCon: http://www.youtube.com/vidcon Hank's Channel: http://www.youtube.com/hankschannel Truth or Fail: http://www.youtube.com/truthorfail ====================== Nerdfighteria http://effyeahnerdfighters.com/ http://effyeahnerdfighters.com/nftumblrs http://reddit.com/r/nerdfighters http://nerdfighteria.info/ A Bunny (\(\ ( - -) ((') (')

On climate change, Kevin ratified the Kyoto Protocol in 2007 and legislated in 2008 for a 20% mandatory renewable energy target for Australia. He represented Australia at the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Summit which produced the Copenhagen Accord, for the first time committing states to not allow temperature increases beyond two degrees. Kevin is now President of the Asia Society Policy Institute in New York. ASPI is a “think-do tank” dedicated to second track diplomacy to assist governments and businesses on policy challenges within Asia, and between Asia, the US and the West.

CCP Short Of Police for Mass Protests
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews China faces slow economic growth, soaring inflation, mass protest outbreaks and spread of social unrest in 2012. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) stepped up its vigilance across China. At the incoming 18th congress, the current political leadership will hand over its power. Foreign media point out, CCP's recent moves indicate its growing police force isn't enough to deal with social unrests. Under CCP's high-handed repressions, China's unexpected mass protests continue to grow, Financial Times reported. CCP police recently killed several Tibetan protesters in Sichuan. The martial law was officially strengthened in the Tibet Autonomous Region. Last week in Xinjiang, the local CCP authorities declared to recruit 8,000 extra policemen. The CCP's internal security spending keeps growing, exceeding the defense budget. However, the police force for maintaining stability across China still see shortage. Over the past 30 years, official data shows figures of crime and mass protests grow much faster than that of police force. In 1978, China had 0.68 million policemen, in 2003, the figure is over 0.86 million. Still yet, over the past 10 years, the police force numbers shot up in China. Xin Lijian, Vice President of Guangdong Humanities Society, recently listed figures of China's mass protests in an article. In 1993-2003, the figure peaked at 60,000, from 10,000. Participants reached 3.07 million from 0.73 million. In 2003-2005, a total of 0.2 million mass protests occurred. Over 10 million people joined protests. In 2010 alone, China's mass protest cases went up to 0.18 million. Zhang Jian, US-East executive committee member of Democracy Party of China, reviews the issue. The harsher the CCP's maintenance of stability gets, the more unstable the society becomes, says Zhang. Zhang Jian: "As far as we know China's mass protests rose to 0.26 million in 2011. China's internal security spending hit a historical new record. This has incited public criticism both in China and abroad. As frictions between civil society and the regime intensify, no amount of army will be enough to safeguard stability." The CCP official media said that the police force in 2011 was about 2 million. That is an average of 150 policemen per 0.10 million people. The figure is less than half of the world average figure the UN announced in 2005. CCP President Hu Jintao put forward a slogan of "innovative social management" in 2011. Hu required the security personnel and localized officials to prevent outbreak of mass protests. Hu offered means like more active communities mediations and more effective grass-root information-gathering. Beijing-based rights lawyer, Mo Shaoping, analyzes China's officials-civilians clash. The essential reason of it is the one-party dictatorship, and the CCP standing above the law. Mo Shaoping: "In terms of macro-economy, mass protest refers to the infringement of various civic legitimate rights: - on civic properties, like demolition & eviction compensation, occupation of farmlands, house compensation, etc.; - on judicial injustice; - on conflicts between ethnic groups; - on citizens' political rights, i.e. elections, unexpected events. A large clash also shows up as the gap widens between rich and poor, i.e. the Gini coefficient is getting bigger." UN's data shows that China's Gini coefficient exceeded 0.55 in 2011, as one of the nations with the highest wealth gap. Gini coefficient of 0.4 is the warning level, indicating a potential social unrest due to wealth polarization. Financial Times revealed, CCP's police force for stability security is harried by regional gaps and system flaws. Over 70 million armed policemen are located across China. In Tibet and Xinjiang alone, the number of armed police is huge, but it is still not enough. Yet in 2008, Shanghai's per-capita spending on law enforcement was twice that for Xinjiang. The CCP security system has another serious weakness: Regular police aren't enough, so its complementary security system is much larger. The complementary system includes state security police, secretly monitoring dissidents, and chengguan (the city urban management agency.) The chengguan are notorious for assaulting small street vendors. According to the foreign media, a great part of CCP's public security forces are non-formal teams. These teams even include CCP political work organs at a grass-root level. Media claim, having had little training of the law, these grass roots teams are intensifying civic-official frictions. As its18th congress nears, the CCP faces increasing difficulties to tackle ongoing mass protests and social unrests. NTD reporters Liu Hui, Li Yuanhan and Xiao Yu

China News - Sichuan Official Li Chuncheng Latest Target in Corruption Probe
Another senior Chinese official appears set to be toppled following reports he's being investigated for corruption. But there could be more to the case. Chinese state-run media this week reported—then retracted—that Li Chuncheng has been placed under "shuanggui"—it's a Communist Party disciplinary system that isolates the individual, and then put them through an intense interrogation. Li is the deputy Party Secretary of Sichuan Province, the second in line after Liu Qibao. Liu was recently appointed the new head of the Chinese regime's Propaganda Department. 56-year-old Li Chuncheng was last seen on November 19th, and failed to turn up at an important meeting on December 4th. The former Mayor and deputy Party chief of Chengdu in Sichuan province was on a rising political track. In November, he was promoted to be an alternate member of the Communist Party's Central Committee. Now his career may come to an abrupt end. And it comes as new Chinese Leader Xi Jinping promises to tackle corruption and clean up the communist party's image But it could also be the result of something else—an intense power struggle within the Party. Li is a loyalist to Zhou Yongkang—the former security chief blamed for worsening the abuse of rule of law while he was the head of the Political and Legislative Affairs Committee. The sprawling security organ has been demoted in rank after November's leadership transition, after some described it to have become the Communist Party's "second power center".

C&C Generals Brutal - China - Operation: Nuclear Winter 1/4
Part 1/4 of China - Operation: Nuclear Winter in my C&C Generals Brutal walkthrough. Probably the hardest end of campaign level in this game in my opinion, because of the many factors to consider, so I'll go into deatil on each. There are five factors I consider to be MAJOR ones. Firstly, and almost immediately, you want to keep as many of your initial units alive to help destroy the GLA supply base, and to help mount a good defence of your position. Secondly, as mentioned in the previous one defence, it's VERY important in comparison to the other two end of level campaigns, in particular the US one, which was rather easy. Although the GLA units essentialy are light armoured, there is enough of them and they are frequent enough to cause you some harm. A wall of fire created by Two Dragon Tanks, added to two Inferno Cannons force firing on the ground, as well as two Overlord Tanks, a couple of Gattling Cannons and the building near the supplies by your entrance garrisoned with Tank Hunters. It's also vital to get the Napalm upgrade, and the Chain Gun upgrade for your defences as soon as you can. Replenish your lost forces too. Cluster Mines will also bolster your defences. The next factor, is the SCUD Storm factor, which is perhaps the main reason the level takes four parts. The only way to avoid an anthrax death, is to keep your funds below $5,000, this is easier than it sounds. Initially, start producing Hackers to generate income, and spend alot on them (20-30 until it's destroyed, add 10-20 later). Spend the income the hackers generate on Overlords + upgrades, replenishing defences, and upgrading other units and structures. The only problem is finding it... The best way to do so, is to Support Power Hop up to the top of the map. E.M.P. , Artillery Barrage, and Cluster Mines will reveal the map for you, and though it may seem wasteful, it will give you plenty of time to produce your attacking force. I'll cover the other factor in the next video.

Wittenoom - The Abandoned Blue Asbestos Mine Ghost Town & The Residents Who Refuse To Leave
Wittenoom - The Blue Asbestos Ghost Town & The Residents Who Refuse To Leave Devils Dust Movie Trailer - The Killer James Hardie Asbestos Company & Bernie Banton https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0REkJuPi1zw Devil's Dust is a two-part Australian television docu-drama mini-series on the ABC which first screened in 2012. Based on journalist Matt Peacock's 2009 book Killer Company, Devil's Dust was researched and developed by producer Stephen Corvini for over two years prior to the series' production. Through the factual case of Bernie Banton, it recounts the tragedy of many Australian workers and their families afflicted with asbestosis and mesothelioma in the twentieth-century asbestos mining and processing industries. Though the extreme health risks of exposure to asbestos dust had been documented for many years, manufacturer James Hardie persisted in large-scale use of the material, aided by inadequate regulation by state health agencies. BEFORE he died an early death at 61 in 2007, Australia knew Bernie Banton as the smiling man with asbestosis who carried an oxygen bottle wherever he went. We didn't know all that much about him at first, just that he was up against the polished legal might and political clout of building materials manufacturer James Hardie. I still remember the company's name stamped on sheets of "fibro" in the local hardware yard. I had no idea the lives of thousands of Australians might have been jeopardised by asbestos in materials such as this. Or that underfelt made from shredded asbestos bags under old carpet leaked pain. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil%27s_Dust Banton seemed an ordinary bloke, a former factory worker, who soon became the widely recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related diseases. But, as this two-part series reveals, there was more to Banton than many of us realised as we watched the emerging folk hero on TV waging his seemingly losing battle against the corporate figureheads of the James Hardie company. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/arts/review/no-clean-sweep-as-miniseries-devils-dust-tackles-bernie-bantons-asbestos-story/story-fn9n8gph-1226513068301 Bernard Douglas (Bernie) Banton AM (13 October 1946 – 27 November 2007) was an Australian social justice campaigner. He was the widely-recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related conditions, which they contracted after either working for the company James Hardie or being exposed to James Hardie Industries' products. Bernie himself suffered from asbestosis, Asbestos-Related Pleural Disease (ARPD) and then finally peritoneal mesothelioma. These conditions required him to carry an oxygen tank wherever he went. The 2009 book Killer Company details Banton's fight against James Hardie. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernie_Banton Bernie Banton on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cjhzvzoo0sk Banton brought an action against Amaca Pty Ltd before the Dust Diseases Tribunal of New South Wales https://safetyatworkblog.com/2012/10/30/devils-dust-australian-movie-on-asbestos-and-corporate-morality/ Exposure to Deadly Asbestos, Pesticides, Illegal Dumping etc - The Dangers, Examples, Advice & Warnings - James Hardie Australia ( Mesothelioma ) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhyT97-KaZ_04EsHUmFurL1vLBSdMtzzR Devils Dust - Deadly Natural Blue Asbestos Facts & Dangers - Products of Asbestos - Mesothelioma https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eKi4_AM6l8

Money Counting Machines Burn Out During Corruption Investigation of Chinese Official
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Recently, a story emerged from China of money bill counters burning out, after overuse in counting embezzled money. A Deputy Chief of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) Coal Bureau was found to have hidden over 100 million Yuan in his home. When the investigators used bill counters to tabulate all the money, some of them burned out. Let's see the report. Wei Pengyuan, a Deputy Chief of the CCP National Energy Administration's Coal Bureau, was placed under investigation this April. Wei was found to have over 100 million Yuan in cash at his home. It was reported that the authorities used 16 bill counters to calculate the amount of cash, and four of them burned out due to overheating. The report said that Wei's job is to review and approve renovation and infrastructure projects for the coal bureau. Many Chinese commented on the humorous nature of the report. Some said "Inflation has not occurred despite overprinting money, and now we finally know the reason for that. A ton of cash rests at a corrupt officials' home and never flows into market". "Our corrupt officials really contribute a lot to controlling the price index". Some calculated that during the less than 6 years when Wei Pengyuan worked as a vice deputy leader of the coal bureau, he embezzled 47,000 Yuan ($7,520) each day. Sui Muqing, Chinese human rights lawyer: "Some are astonished that a vice deputy leader was able to steal so much money. However, in my opinion, that is only a relatively small amount, because after all he works in the power sector. The surprising fact is that he had kept over 100 million Yuan in cash at home. Normally very few people keep that large amount of money at home. That's my point." A report said that if this amount was all in 100-Yuan bills, it would weigh over a ton. The money pile would reach 100 meters high, about the same as a 30-storey building. Chinese anti-corruption activist Shi Caifei commented that Wei Pengyuan is not an isolated case among CCP officials. Shi Caifei: "There are many CCP officials like that and it did not happen by accident. There are many of them, from high-level to low-level CCP officials. They embezzle amounts from millions to tens of millions, to hundreds of millions. Every level of CCP official is doing the same." Shi Caifei was previously attacked and injured for reporting on a corrupt official who embezzle collective assets in Huilong town, Qidong city, Jiangsu Province. He was then forcibly abducted to a mental hospital, and was injected with harmful drugs. Since 2012, a large group of CCP officials have been arrested on corruption charges. Despite this, the number and amount of corruption continues to rise. By the end of 2013, the anti-corruption organization Transparency International announced its annual ranking corruption index. China ranks eighth, and belongs to a group of counties with serious corruption. Sui Fuqing: "You can never arrest all corrupt officials. Some CCP officials do that under pressure. It is like you have to kill someone as proof of fidelity when you become a bandit. If someone embezzles, others have to follow. You can't have corrupt and innocent officials in the same department. Why were some officials exposed? Because they did not embezzle enough, otherwise they won't be easily exposed if they have embezzled a lot." The CCP found a lot of hidden corrupt officials using reports from mistresses and thieves. Shi Caifei confirms though that the CCP's anti-corruption campaign never manages to reach the fundamental problem. Shi Caifei: "The campaign indeed has little to do with local officials. There are no real anti-corruption actions in local places. Everything is the same as usual. The whole system is chaotic in management, and it lacks supervision. The party is both the player and the referee, and it indeed never allows independent observers to monitor its actions." The CCP's supreme procuratorate recently made an announcement. They had investigated 8,222 corruption and bribery cases between January and March. 10,840 individuals were found to have been involved. Among those cases, 82.2 percent, or 6,759 cases involve an amount of embezzlement over 50,000 Yuan ($8,000). Chinese human rights lawyers Sui Muqing comments that the CCP is currently running it's most serious anti-corruption campaign since it took power. However, it still cannot solve the problem. Sui Muqing: "In the long run, any 'campaign' or 'movement' will not work. 《神韵》2014世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Text Mining the Contributors to Rail Accidents
Text Mining the Contributors to Rail Accidents http://jpinfotech.org/final-year-ieee-projects/2016-ieee-projects/ To get this project in ONLINE or through TRAINING Sessions, Contact: JP INFOTECH, Old No.31, New No.86, 1st Floor, 1st Avenue, Ashok Pillar, Chennai -83.Landmark: Next to Kotak Mahendra Bank.

Mobile: (0) 9952649690, Email: [email protected], web: www.jpinfotech.org, Blog: www.jpinfotech.blogspot.com Rail accidents represent an important safety concern for the transportation industry in many countries. In the 11 years from 2001 to 2012, the U.S. had more than 40 000 rail accidents that cost more than $45 million. While most of the accidents during this period had very little cost, about 5200 had damages in excess of $141 500. To better understand the contributors to these extreme accidents, the Federal Railroad Administration has required the railroads involved in accidents to submit reports that contain both fixed field entries and narratives that describe the characteristics of the accident. While a number of studies have looked at the fixed fields, none have done an extensive analysis of the narratives. This paper describes the use of text mining with a combination of techniques to automatically discover accident characteristics that can inform a better understanding of the contributors to the accidents. The study evaluates the efficacy of text mining of accident narratives by assessing predictive performance for the costs of extreme accidents. The results show that predictive accuracy for accident costs significantly improves through the use of features found by text mining and predictive accuracy further improves through the use of modern ensemble methods. Importantly, this study also shows through case examples how the findings from text mining of the narratives can improve understanding of the contributors to rail accidents in ways not possible through only fixed field analysis of the accident reports.
Public Can Kill Criminal Says Philippines President Elect Rodrigo Duterte
Philippines president-elect Rodrigo Duterte effectively said he supports vigilantism in a nationally-televised speech. Faced with criminals who resist arrest or threaten citizens, the controversial politician suggested that it was fine for citizens to take the law into their own hands. "If he fights, and he fights to the death, you can kill him," said the former mayor of Davao City, who was elected to the presidency in a decisive victory last month. During the address, Duterte also encouraged citizens to use deadly force against drug dealers who threaten them.

Former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke Dies Aged 89
Former Australian prime minister has died aged 89. Bob Hawke was Labor Party leader. He dominated the country's politics in the 1980s. He was renowned for his love of beer and cricket. This charismatic politician served from 1983 to 1991. He is credited with modernising the economy. He was the centre-left Labor Party's longest-serving Prime Minister. He achieved the highest approval ratings of any leader. He died "peacefully at home", his wife said in a statement. "Today we lost Bob Hawke, a great Australian - many would say the greatest Australian of the post-war era," Blanche d'Alpuget said in a statement. Mr Hawke joined the Labor Party at the age of 18 in 1947 and would go on to win a Rhodes Scholarship to the University of Oxford in 1953. He later joined the trade union movement, rising to become president of the Australian Council of Trade Unions by 1969. He first won a seat in parliament in 1980 and became Labor leader in 1983. He and Labor won a general election by a landslide soon after. Mr Hawke was known for his maverick style and will be remembered as Australia's "larrikin" leader - the prime minister who loved a drink and joke, and made the serious work of politics look like fun. He set a world record for drinking a yard (1.4l) of beer in 11 seconds while at Oxford University, and he would still perform his party trick of downing a glass of beer at cricket matches well into his late 80s. He cried publicly a number of times - most famously in 1989 at a memorial service at Parliament House following the crackdown on Chinese students at Beijing's Tiananmen square. But his playful manner belied a sharp political mind: during eight years in power, he introduced pension and welfare reform at home, while improving trade links abroad, says the BBC's Hywel Griffith in Sydney. He was known for his concern for Australia's vulnerable, once declaring that he wanted to create a country where there were "no second-class Australians". He created Australia's universal healthcare system, Medicare. But he is also lauded by many for making radical market reforms, including floating the Australian dollar. "Among his proudest achievements were large increases in the proportion of children finishing high school, his role in ending apartheid in South Africa, and his successful international campaign to protect Antarctica from mining," the statement from his family said. He "abhorred racism and bigotry", it added, and "foresaw the Asian Century". Tributes are pouring in for a man who was highly popular with the Australian public and led Labor to four election victories. "The labour movement salutes our greatest son," tweeted Bill Shorten, current Labor Party leader. Prime Minister Scott Morrison called him "a great Australian", adding that he had "a unique ability to speak to all Australians and will be greatly missed". Former Labor PM Julia Gillard tweeted that he was "the greatest peacetime leader Australia has ever had" and sent her condolences to his family, while Kevin Rudd - Ms Gillard's predecessor and successor - called him "a giant of Australian politics". Kevin Rudd twitted: "Bob Hawke is a giant of Australian politics. He and Paul Keating internationalised the Australian economy. He established APEC and radically deepened Australia’s engagement with Asia. He established Medicare. Together with Therese and the entire nation, I mourn his passing." Russell Crowe twitted: "Bob Hawke has died. A great man who made this country confident. A great man who never lost his humility. Guinness book of records 1954 , 2.5 pints of beer in 11 seconds. Rhodes Scholar. Trade Union Leader. Prime Minister. Statesman. Thanks for everything Mr Hawke." Bob Hawke's death comes days before Australians go to the polls in a federal election. His former rival and the man who succeeded him as Labor leader and prime minister, Paul Keating, said that the pair had enjoyed a "great partnership". "What remains and what will endure from that partnership are the monumental foundations of modern Australia," he said. [News script taken from BBC] Thanks for watching.

VOA news for Monday, February 17th, 2014
Thanks to http://gandalf.ddo.jp/ for audio and text Monday, February 17th, 2014 From Washington, this is VOA news. 4 killed in blast aboard an Egyptian tour bus. Afghan insurgent group to join the Presidential election. I'm Ray Kouguell reporting from Washington. An explosion ripped through a tourist bus near Egypt's border with Israel, killing 3 South Korean tourists and their Egyptian driver Sunday. The bus, carrying 33 tourists, was on the way from St. Catherine's Monastery in central Sinai to Israel when it exploded at the border crossing in Taba. The South Korean Foreign Ministry confirmed the death of 2 of its nationals and says the tourists were members of a Christian church group. Security officials say the cause of the bombing remains unclear. Suspected Islamist militants have killed more than 90 Christian villagers in an attack in northeastern Nigeria. Witnesses say the suspected militants, dressed as soldiers, attacked a village in Borno state late Saturday night. There has been no immediate claim of responsibility, but authorities suspect the Islamist militant group Boko Haram was behind the attack. Emergency workers in South Africa have rescued almost a dozen miners trapped in an abandoned gold mine east of Johannesburg. Rescue workers used heavy duty equipment to remove large rocks and boulders that fell on top of the mine shaft. Officials had been in contact with about 30 of the trapped miners, who say around 200 others were stuck in the tunnels deep below the surface. Police at the scene say some of the trapped miners were reluctant to emerge because of fears they would be arrested. The miners went down into the mine on Saturday after illegally digging a tunnel near the abandoned mine shaft. They were discovered after police patrolling the area heard their calls for help. A key Afghan group fighting alongside the Taliban against NATO forces announced it will formally participate in the upcoming Presidential elections in Afghanistan. Ayaz Gul reports. The announcement to participate in the election by the Hizb-e-Islami faction is seen as a blow to the Taliban-led insurgency in Afghanistan. Led by fugitive former Afghan Prime Minister Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, the insurgent group is the 2nd largest after the Taliban. While the Hizb-e-Islami faction fought alongside the Taliban against coalition forces, it had been a rival to the Taliban while it was in power. It has until now stayed away from Presidential elections, citing the presence of coalition forces in Afghanistan. The polls are being described as crucial for future stability in the country and it will be the 1st time in the troubled Afghan history that power will be transferred through a democratic process. Ayaz Gul, for VOA news, Islamabad. There are 11 candidates in the race to replace President Hamid Karzai, who is barred by the constitution from running a third time. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told an Indonesian audience that climate change is a threat to the entire world. Secretary Kerry said the science of climate change is compelling the world to act and the world's 2 biggest superpowers--the U.S. and China--have agreed to work together on the problem. "Together we account for roughly 40 percent of the world's emissions. But this is not just about China and the United States. It's about every country on Earth doing whatever it can to pursue cleaner and healthier energy sources." Secretary Kerry says 97 percent of scientists agree climate change is occurring and is being caused by human activity. Anti-government protesters in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, have vacated city hall to meet a government amnesty offer. The end of the 2-month occupation came on Sunday after the government made concessions and released detained protesters. Iraqi radical Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr announced his retirement from politics. In a handwritten note posted on his website Sunday, Sadr announced his "non-intervention in all political affairs." He said he was closing down all his offices, except for some charities. Sadr and his militia group, the Mehdi Army, gained prominence after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. 4 countries won Olympic gold medals Sunday at the Sochi Games in Russia, with the Netherlands sweeping the top 3 places in the 1,500-meter women's speedskating event. The Czech Republic won its 1st gold, taking the women's snowboarding cross event. Norway won the men's super-G. Sweden claimed the gold in the men's 4 by 10-kilometer cross country relay. The Netherlands leads with 17 total medals, followed by the United States and Russia with 16. Germany has the most gold medals at 7. I'm Ray Kouguell, VOA news.

Shanghai Openly Challenges Xi Jinping's Comments on Traditional Chinese Culture
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Xi Jinping recently attended a Teacher's Day event at Beijing Normal University. Xi said it is a "sad thing" to see classical Chinese poems deleted from the textbook. On the next day, the official newspaper of the Shanghai party committee claimed on weibo that "studying traditional Chinese culture is like helping shoots grow by pulling them up," which sounds to be in defiance of Xi's words. Commentators said, Xi's comment on history and tradition can be a signal announcing the fact of Jiang Zemin's treason. On the other hand, the attitude of the Shanghai government will only make Jiang's situation even worse. In late August, Chinese media reported that Shanghai would delete all classical Chinese poems from the textbook of first-year elementary school students. Many parents and residents complained about the decision or opposed it. On Sep. 2, People's Daily website published an article titled "Deletion of Classical Poems: Reduction of Burden or Tradition" to criticize Shanghai's move. On Sep. 9, Xi visited Beijing Normal University. Xi said, he disapproved very much of removing classical poems and essays from the textbook. Xi also commented "desinicization is a sad thing." Beijing made a quick response to Xi's comments. On the next day, the Beijing government announced that the city's first-year textbook will have 22 classical poems from next September. The number is increased from 6 to 8 poems in the current textbook. On the same day, People's Daily also published an article authored by "Party Organ Commentator". The first section had used the title "Who was criticized by Xi Jinping" to direct against Shanghai. At the end, the article said "As Beijing will make those changes from next year, let's see whether other places will actively follow the example of our capital." Commentators believe that Xi Jinping is pressing Shanghai for their response with the article. The same evening, Jiefang Daily, Shanghai's official daily newspaper, said on weibo that "add a dozen poems into the textbook overnight, but how can that benefit our tradition?" and "Anyone with some knowledge of traditional culture must know the meaning of "Help shoots grow by pulling them up"." These again were comments full of defiance. Chen Minghui:"Xi's speech is to show his hand to Jiang Zemin. This is also his trump card. That is, the history and desinicization issue. Who destroyed traditional Chinese culture most? Whose father was a traitor? There is irrefutable evidence to answer these questions. Other key facts include Jiang's spying for other countries and signing treasonable treaties." According to "Truth about Jiang Zemin", Jiang's father Jiang Shijun was a traitor working for the Japanese during World War II. Jiang himself signed away over 1.7 million km2 of Chinese land to Russia. Chinese political commentator Chen Minghui said, that after taking power, Xi Jinping did a lot to eliminate Jiang Zemin's evil faction that ruled China for 25 years with corruption. He launched the Shanghai Free-Trade Zone in economic field, and used "Constitutionalism" and "Anti-corruption" as political weapons. His anti-corruption campaign has worked well and now Xi will play his trump card. In December 2012, Xi for the first time presented the idea saying "Rule of the law is based on rule in accord with constitution." Since then, Xi's "dream of constitutionalism" had flickered in media reports. Last year, party mouthpieces even massively made criticisms against constitutionalism for a period. Chen Minghui:"Xi's constitutionalism theory is against Jiang's keeping China under control even many years after retirement. Jiang's criminal group has seriously persecuted human rights and religious groups, democrats, dissidents and petitioners. They did that in a systematic and massive manner. Those are extremely serious crimes against humanity." Chen also commented that Xi may worry that his “dream of constitutionalism” can shake up the whole regime and therefore has been wavering in using that "weapon". Probably the history issue is a less risky "card" for Xi and he is testing to use it. Chen Minghui:"The big tigers that fell recently are indeed from one single group. However, we have not seen any official report about the complex connections between them. It's still not the time yet. If those connections are announced to the public, probably Zeng Qinghong and the final boss Jiang Zemin will have to be exposed to the public, too." Commentators said, Beijing as "Capital" of Xi's group has been in an odd fight against Shanghai, the base camp of Jiang Zemin. However, Jiefang Daily's open resistance against Xi, no matter it is an intentional move or not, is exposing the war between Xi and Jiang to the world. 《神韵》2014世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Has the West Lost It? A Conversation with Kishore Mahbubani
For more on this event, visit: https://bit.ly/2xBv5lk For more on the Georgetown Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues: https://uschinadialogue.georgetown.edu/ October 1, 2018 | In his new book, Has the West Lost It? A Provocation, renowned scholar Kishore Mahbubani assesses the challenges the West faces in a fast-changing, multipolar world. He argues that while democracy and peace remain critical for global order, the West can no longer presume to impose its ideology on the world. Only by recognizing its changing status, and seeking to influence rather than dominate, can the West continue to play a leading role in global affairs. On October 1, 2018, Professor Mahbubani visited Georgetown for a presentation and discussion of this important book. Dr. Victor Cha, the D.S. Song-KF endowed chair in international affairs, moderated the discussion.
