Rahul Gandhi compares PM Modi to Philippines's Rodrigo Duterte: They both thrive on hate, disrespect institutions
TIMESOFINDIA.COM | Updated: Sep 29, 2017, 10:01 IST

NEW DELHI: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi said PM Narendra Modi and the Philippines's Rodrigo Duterte are vey alike in that they both "thrive on hatred and disrespect institutions".

In an interview carried in The Huffington Post this week, Rahul also said socially and economically, Modi "is a status-quoist pretending to be a reformer". He added that the decision to demonetise was not just "a body blow to our economy", it is also a "superb example" of this disrespect for institutions, because it was "taken unilaterally" by PM Modi. Still, PM Modi came to power democratically, and for that to happen, Modi followed "the model of the Muslim Brotherhood [in Egypt]".

The Congress vice president said Modi and the government are exploiting the supposed anger over unemployment to use it "against minorities". That, combined with "institutional civil war", has led to a "crisis" for Indian democracy, said the Congress vice president.

"It is this combination of circumstances that has created the space for leaders like Modi and Duterte who thrive on hatred and disrespect institutions," said Rahul in his interview with Nicolas Berggruen, the chairman of a US think tank, Berggruen Institute.

World Daily News / The Lamps are Going Out in Asia

SEPTEMBER 25, 2017

“The lamps are going out all over Europe. We shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.”
— Sir Edward Grey, British Foreign Secretary, August 3, 1914

US President Donald Trump’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly on September 19 may well come to be viewed as “historic,” but not in a good way. This article will leave for others the impact of Donald Trump’s and Kim Jong Un’s reality TV show rhetoric. But the substance of Trump’s speech—including threats to both North Korea and the Iran deal—may have closed any remaining doors to a diplomatic resolution to this crisis surrounding North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs. Moreover, Trump’s speech and the North Korean reaction seem to have set us on a path that could very well end in a major war in Asia. The escalating threats and the closing off of diplomatic options by both sides makes it now more likely than ever that President Trump will have to make good on his threat to “utterly destroy” a nation of 25 million people. The strategic consequences of carrying out this threat, even if successful, will be felt for the remainder of this century, largely to the detriment of the United States and the Western World.

'How can you fight fake news kung may instances na nanggagaling mismo sa isang Asec yung fake news?' Senator Nancy Binay asks Communications Secretary Martin Andanar

MANILA, Philippines – Senators raised this issue against Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson, with Senator Nancy Binay saying the battle against fake news is difficult because of the dancer turned government official.

The topic was discussed on Wednesday, September 20, during the Senate hearing on the proposed P1.35 billion of the Presidential Communications Operations Office for 2018.

“I would have wanted Secretary Uson to answer some questions,” Senator Joseph Victor Ejercito said.

Uson, a staunch supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, has been repeatedly spreading fake information on her social media account.

Andanar said Uson is in New York with Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano, who is attending the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Question and Answer / What is a 'dotard'?

In one of the strangest war of words we’ve seen here at PolitiFact, President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un traded insults recently, culminating in the use of the insult "dotard."

Merriam-Webster noted that searches for the word spiked.

Older PolitiFact staffers informed our younger counterparts that a dotard is someone who has entered his or her dotage, and that dotage is "a state or period of senile decay marked by decline of mental poise and alertness," according to Merriam-Webster.

Kim Jong Un hurled the word at Trump in response to Trump’s recent speech at the United Nations, saying that Trump’s speech was "unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors. A frightened dog barks louder. I’d like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words and to be considerate of whom he speaks to when making a speech in front of the world."

Later in the statement, Kim said, "Whatever Trump might have expected, he will face results beyond his expectation. I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire."

Trump responded on Twitter: "Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!"

Where this war of words will lead is anyone’s guess. PolitiFact recently reviewed the issues surrounding North Korea as a preview to Trump’s speech at the United Nations, and we fact-checked Trump’s speech as well.

USA and Canada / Idiot Donald Trump Is Like an Aggressive Chimp

Donald Trump Is Like an Aggressive Chimp and May Not Last Long as President, Says Famous Primatologist Jane Goodall
Newsweek  Tufayel Ahmed,Newsweek 2 hours 32 minutes ago

Primatologist Jane Goodall has made her name studying chimpanzees for over half a century. So, if anyone can deduce a distinct correlation between a brash chimp and the egoistic hubris of, say, the president of the United States, it’s Goodall.

Pre-election, last October, Goodall made a comparison between then-Republican candidate Donald Trump and the primates she has devoted her life to understanding.

“In many ways the performances of Donald Trump remind me of male chimpanzees and their dominance rituals,” she told the Atlantic.

“In order to impress rivals, males seeking to rise in the dominance hierarchy perform spectacular displays: Stamping, slapping the ground, dragging branches, throwing rocks. The more vigorous and imaginative the display, the faster the individual is likely to rise in the hierarchy, and the longer he is likely to maintain that position.”

Professor Peter Harrison, who has been researching coral reproduction for 35 years, said his world-first breakthrough could restore marine environments around the world by helping coral have sex more effectively.

Regrowing reef: corals say ‘I do’
September 16, 2017 6:30am

BRIDES love it and coral could too.

Material used to make wedding veils is the key to combating “the international reef crisis”, a northern NSW coral researcher says.

And it all revolves around coral getting their kicks more easily.

In the past few years, Southern Cross University Professor Peter Harrison said he had bred and nurtured 1mm-long larvae to breeding corals roughly the size of dinner plates on reefs damaged by dynamite fishing in the Philippines.

A Philippine official on Friday ordered an entire city police force off the job in metropolitan Manila after some of its members were suspected in the gruesome killings of three teenagers and others were seen on surveillance cameras robbing a house.

The 1,200-strong Caloocan city police force will be relieved in batches and replaced, said metropolitan Manila police chief Oscar Albayalde. The officers will undergo 45 days of retraining, after which those facing no charges can be reassigned to other stations.

The Department of Justice has started an investigation based on a murder and torture complaint against four Caloocan policemen allegedly linked to the killing of 17-year-old student Kian delos Santos during an anti-drug raid last month.

Selina LumLaw Correspondent

SINGAPORE - A couple who starved their maid for more than a year and caused her weight to plummet from 49kg to 29.4kg will have to serve longer jail terms, following an appeal by the prosecution.

On Friday (Sept 15), the jail sentence of housewife Chong Sui Foon, 48, was raised from three months to 10. Instead of his original sentence of three weeks' jail and a $10,000 fine, her husband Lim Choon Hong, 48, will now have to serve 10 months' jail.

The original sentences were "patently and manifestly inadequate", said Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon. He added that the couple subjected Filipina Thelma Oyasan Gawidan to "systematic cruelty and denial of her basic human dignity".

LONDON: Heart disease and tobacco ranked with conflict and violence among the world's biggest killers in 2016, while poor diets and mental disorders caused people the greatest ill health, a large international study has found.

The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study, published on Friday (Sep 15) in The Lancet medical journal, found that while life expectancy is increasing, so too are the years people live in poor health. The proportion of life spent being ill is higher in poor countries than in wealthy ones.

"Death is a powerful motivator, both for individuals and for countries, to address diseases that have been killing us at high rates. But we've been much less motivated to address issues leading to illnesses," said Christopher Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, which led the study.

Marcos plundered to 'protect' the economy? Makes no economic sense

Let’s not sugarcoat it: what the Marcoses did was quite possibly the biggest presidential plunder in history

Two weeks before Ferdinand Marcos’ hundredth birth anniversary, President Rodrigo Duterte revived public discussions about the Marcoses’ wealth.

In a speech before new appointees, the President said that a “spokesman” of the Marcoses intimated they might soon “return” some of their wealth – including “a few gold bars” – to help the government tide over its larger budget deficit this year.

But what struck me the most was the claim that President Marcos “hid” the money to “protect the economy.” The President said he accepted this explanation by the spokesman.

This statement is wrong on two accounts: First, the Marcoses did not “hide” money; they plundered from the Filipino people. Second, plundering to “protect” the economy makes no economic sense at all.

In the early 1980s the country was gripped by a severe debt crisis where we direly needed funds to repay our oversized debts. Offshoring vast sums of money in these circumstances did not “protect” the economy. In fact, it exacerbated capital flight and helped bring about the country’s deepest postwar recession.

I’ve written about the Marcosian economy before (READ: Marcos years marked ‘golden age’ of the PH economy? Look at the data). But in this article I take a closer look at the country’s debt crisis, and why it matters in the revived talks about the Marcoses’ wealth.

Gordon’s unethical complaint
Philippine Daily Inquirer editorial/ 05:12 AM September 06, 2017

Senator Richard Gordon is a man of many accomplishments, and it is no secret that he has an outsized ego. Many politicians are just like him.

The ambition that propels a man or a woman to make politics a lifetime career is fueled not only by notions of public service or considerations of family or party or class interests but also by healthy, indeed robust, egos.

Gordon is no different. His self-image is that of a person of intelligence and importance; he wants the public to take him seriously; he craves appreciation for the hard work that he puts into his dual responsibilities as senator of the Republic and chairman of the Red Cross.

How To Make Money Tips / How to grow rich
« on: September 04, 2017, 08:52:25 PM »
By David Potts

There are five recognised ways to wealth, ranging from being tight with money to borrowing, writes David Potts.

The fastest way to get rich is building your own business. But you have to do what you’re good at, take risks, work hard and be lucky.

“There are more Ferraris in Victoria registered in industrial Dandenong than Toorak because all the businesses are out there with warehouses and shops, so the Ferrari goes in the company business”, the head of investment strategy and consulting at UBS Wealth Management, George Boubouras, says.

“The secret is to understand your own business,” he says. “Each story is unique”.

“And borrow to invest.”

Short of starting your own business, five recognised ways to early wealth range from being tight with your money to borrowing other people’s.

When building a portfolio of investment, timing is a critical factor. “The rich don’t follow the herd,” says Dale Gillham, chief investment analyst at Wealth Within and author of How to Beat The Managed Funds by 20%.

“It’s the opposite – the herd attempts to follow the rich. The research I have done is that those who are not rich tend to move their money into the market before the peak and out of it after the crash.”

Wanted: Richard Prevendido

ILOILO CITY — Betrayal is more potent than amulets.

The lure of the P1.1-million reward for the head of Richard “Buang” Prevendido, the fugitive suspected of being Western Visayas’ biggest drug lord, enticed a gang member to tip off the police of his whereabouts.

In the end, not even his amulets could save him from the hail of bullets that killed him.

A new species of pink river dolphin, Inia araguaiaensis Gabriel Melo-Santos

A new species is being discovered in the Amazon every two days from fire-tailed titi monkeys and yellow-moustached lizards to pink river dolphins and honeycomb-patterned stingrays, according to a new report.

Conservation group World Wildlife Fund, who wrote the report along with Brazil’s Mamiraua Institute, said the astonishing rate of new finds showed scientists had still only scratched the surface of all the “incredible species” that live there.

But “relentless deforestation” of the Amazon means many of its undiscovered animals and plants will go extinct before they are found, WWF warned, urging governments in the region to take action.

The report revealed a total of 381 new species had been discovered in 2014 and 2015, including 216 plants, 93 fish, 32 amphibians, 20 mammals – although two of those were fossils – 19 reptiles and one bird.
