Xi's Deserted Desert Road
By David Fickling
Jul 19, 2016 12:05 PM BST

Think China's plans to build railways across central Asia will be a boon for global trade? Consider this: The mighty Trans-Siberian Railway carried about as much east-west container traffic last year as you'd get on a single boat.

Transit container traffic over the network amounted to 109,000 20-foot equivalent units in 2015, its owner Russian Railways said last month. The world's biggest container ship, the MSC Oscar, can carry 19,224 TEUs and takes about two months to make the return trip from Asia to Europe.

That should be a cautionary tale for those expecting great things from President Xi Jinping's plans to build a revived overland Silk Road between China and the west. Maritime trade may not be sexy, but right now it's a lot cheaper to move things round the world on the high seas than on a train.

China's existing trade is a decent guide. Freight volumes through its major ports comfortably outstrip total rail-freight traffic through its border provinces, according to data compiled by Bloomberg -- and that comparison heavily skews things in rail's favor, given how much of the land-based traffic is domestic.

To be sure, the disparity is recognized by China. Land-based spending forms the 'belt' in Xi's 'One Belt, One Road' policy while the 'road', confusingly, consists of maritime projects such as a planned $10 billion upgrade at Malacca port in Malaysia. The $40 billion Silk Road Fund and $100 billion Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank established by Beijing will be financing both.


IGO ang agtang sa usa ka lalaki human kini gipusil sa wala mailang suspetsado niadtong Biyernes sa gabii hinungdan sa hinanali niini nga kamatayon niad Kalingagan, Villanueva, Misamis Oriental.

Patay si Ramil Sagay, 26, minyo nga residente sa nahisgutang dapit.

Sa saysay sa amahan sa biktima nga si Jose sa interbyu sa radyo nga nibisita ang anak niini sa ilang dapit aron motabang sa pagpamanday og sundang apan kalit lamang kining gipusil sa wala maila nga mga suspetsado.

Giingong nakurat na lamang ang amahan sa dihang pauli na unta gikan nagpalit og ilimnong makahubog sa dihang nakadungog og buto sa armas.

Dako ang katingala sa dihang nakitang nagbuy-od na ang anak ug wala na’y kinabuhi human makaangkon og samad pinusilan diha mismo sa iyang agtang.

Blangko pa ang amahan sa motibo sa pagpatay sa biktima nga si Sagay tungod kay wala kini nasayod kung aduna’y kontra ang anak lakip na kung nahilambigit ba kini sa illegal nga kalihokan ilabi na ang ginadili nga druga diin mao’y init kayo karong mga panahona.

Padayon pa nga wala maila ang suspetsado sa maong pagpamusil ug wala pa usab masuta ang motibo niini lakip na ang klase sa armas nga gigamit.

Sa pagsulat niini nga balita ang patay nga lawas ang kasamtangang anaa na sa Bollozos Funeral Homes sa Bulua ning dakbayan sa Cagayan de Oro.

Philippine Daily News / Rody won’t honor Paris climate pact

PRESIDENT Duterte on Monday said his administration would not honor the historic Paris Agreement on climate change that the Philippines adopted along with about 200 countries in December 2015, saying the covenant was “stupid” and “absurd.”

The tough-talking President said the international treaty, signed by countries that participated in the 21st Conference of Parties in France, would only limit the country’s industrial growth.

Speaking at sendoff ceremonies in Malacañang for Filipino athletes bound for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the President said a foreign ambassador recently reminded him of the country’s commitment to limit its carbon emissions.

He said he was angry with the ambassador and “wanted to kick him” when the diplomat, whom he did not identify, asked him if the Philippines could maintain the level of its carbon footprints.

“I said, ‘No. I cannot tell … You don’t do it that way, Mr. Ambassador. [Your country] has reached the apex [of industrialization] and along the way put a lot of contaminants and emissions, and went ahead in destroying the climate,’” the President recalled as telling the ambassador.

“We have not reached the age of industrialization. We’re now going into it. But you are trying to stymie [our growth] with an agreement that says you can only go up to here,” he added. “That’s stupid. I will not honor that.”

Signature not his

When the ambassador told him that the Philippines was a signatory to the agreement, Mr. Duterte replied: “That was not my signature. It’s not mine … I will not follow.”

The President also said the climate change agreement was forged just when the Philippines was on its way to develop its own industries.

“Now that we’re developing, you will impose a limit?” he said. “That’s absurd.”

NAGPATALA sa kapolisan ang usa ka babaye batok sa nangawat sa iyang tanglad niadtong Dominggo sa Macapaya, Upper Camaman-an ning dakbayan sa Cagayan de Oro.

Ang nagpatala naila nga mao si Rosanna Arangcon, 27, minyo nga residente sa nahisgutang dapit samtang ang suspek nailang si Raul.

Sa nahipos nga report gikan sa Police Station 2 sa Cogon nasayran nga nagreklamo ang biktima human nga nasapon sa akto nga nangawat ang suspek sa tanom niini nga tanglad diha mismo sa likod nga bahin sa ilang panimalay.

Gikabutyag nga napungot na pag-ayo ang maong biktima gumikan kay una na niini nawala ang ilang kaldero diin susama nga suspetsado ang gituohang maoy nagkuha.

Sa pagsulat niini nga balita ang suspetsado ang kasamtangang nakatala na sa buhatan sa kapolisan ug giduso na sa Barangay Lupon alang sa tukmang disposasiyon. (KCS)

ULAANBAATAR: A key summit between Asian and European leaders in Mongolia ended on Saturday without direct mention of the South China Sea dispute in its closing statement, with diplomats describing intense discord over the issue between Europe and Asia.

China has refused to recognise Tuesday's ruling by an arbitration court in The Hague invalidating its vast claims in the South China Sea and did not take part in the proceedings brought by the Philippines. It has reacted angrily to calls by Western countries and Japan for the decision to be adhered to.

China had flagged ahead of the Ulaanbaatar get-together that it did not want the South China Sea to be discussed, saying it was not an appropriate venue.

The closing statement said leaders reaffirmed a commitment to promote maritime security, safety and cooperation, freedom of navigation and overflight and to refrain from using threatening force.

It also said disputes should be resolved via international law, the United Nations charter and U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea, or UNCLOS.

European Council President Donald Tusk told reporters he hoped the court's decision would create positive momentum in finding a solution to the dispute.

"Still, it's not so easy to agree with our Chinese partners when it comes to these issues but our talks were difficult, tough but also promising," he said.

On Friday, the European Union issued a statement noting China's legal defeat but avoided direct reference to Beijing, reflecting discord among EU governments over how strongly to respond to the court ruling.

While the European Union is neutral in China's dispute with its Asian neighbours in the South China Sea, Britain, France and Germany want to make clear that Beijing must uphold international law as it seeks a bigger global role.

But speaking with one European voice has become difficult as some smaller governments, including Hungary and Greece, rely on Chinese investment and are unwilling to criticise Beijing.

This new map of the universe charts out 1.2 million galaxies
Knowing where they all are helps us understand the expansion of the universe
By Andrew Liptak  on July 15, 2016 04:26 pm 

In an attempt to better understand the nature of the expansion of our universe, scientists have created a 3D map plotting the locations of 1.2 million galaxies. This map may help give astronomers new details about how the universe has been expanding, which will help us learn more about the mysterious force that scientists believe has been driving the expansion.

Published in a new study, the 3D map shows 650 cubic billion light years, which is just a quarter of the known universe. Each point in this map isn’t a star: it’s an entire galaxy. The map was created by scientists working on the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS), a program of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III (SDSS-III).

This survey examined fluctuations in the density of regular matter, which serve as a "robust standard ruler for measurements of cosmic distances." Those fluctuations, called baryonic acoustic oscillations, are an ideal tool for plotting the relative positions of each galaxy. In the map, the purple dots mark the galaxies that are farthest away, while the yellow ones represent galaxies that are closer to us. This is important, because it allows scientists to figure out the relative motion of each object, which in turn lets them determine just how fast they’re moving away from one another.

Scientists have always wondered exactly how big the universe is, but it wasn’t until 1929 that Edwin Hubble (the guy they named the telescope after) began measuring how galaxies move away from an observer. This is called a redshift, which occurs as the wavelength of energy lengthens, moving toward the red end of the spectrum. Hubble recognized that this meant that the universe itself was expanding. This is a fundamental theory that led to even bigger revelations, such as the Big Bang.

ISTANBUL (AP) — The U.N. cultural agency on Friday placed nine new sites on its World Heritage List, including a medieval Armenian city located in northeast Turkey.

UNESCO added the old city of Ani, in the Turkish province of Kars to its prestigious list during a meeting in Istanbul. Ani, near Turkey's now closed border with Armenia, once served as the capital of the Armenian kingdom in the 10th century. Mostly abandoned after a devastating earthquake in the 14th century, the ruins include a relatively well-preserved cathedral and hold major significance for Armenians.

Other sites announced Friday include China's Zuojiang Huashan rock art cultural landscape, Iran's ancient aqueducts known as Qanat, and India's archaeological site of Nalanda Mahavihara. A transboundary site located in Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia, and heritage sites in Greece, Spain and Gibraltar also made the list.

The World Heritage Committee also selected Micronesia's artificial islets of Nan Madol and simultaneously placed it on the List of World Heritage in Danger.

As military vehicles rumbled through the streets of Ankara, members of Turkey's military said Friday night they had seized control of the country, ousting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has dominated the country for more than a decade.

The dramatic development plunged one of the region's most important countries into a major crisis. Television footage showed civilians coming into the streets in many places, with some waving red-and-white Turkish flags. However, it was not clear who was supporting the coup and who was opposing it.

Erdogan had been on vacation at the Black Sea, but his exact whereabouts were not immediately clear. The Turkish president — who has censored social media — did appear via FaceTime video on the CNN Turk network and called on the Turkish people to resist the military action.

DAGHANG bun-og sa kalawasan ang nahiagoman sa usa ka asawa human giposposan og botelya sa iyang kanhi kaipon nga di mosugot nga duawon ang ilang duha ka anak.

Ang biktima si Lynlyn (bansagon gitago sa Superbalita), 28, house helper, nagpuyo sa Rosalina 3, Barangay Baliok, Talomo District, dakbayan sa Davao.

Si Lynlyn midangop sa Buhangin Police Station nga dunay mga bun-og niadtong Lunes.

Gisaysay ni Lynlyn nga alas 11:30 sa buntag niadtong Lunes, iyang giduaw ang iyang kanhi kaipon sa Lawaan, Barangay Callawa, Buhangin District sanglit naa didto ang ilang duha ka mga anak.

Giingong anaa pa lang sa intrada sa balay si Lynlyn, gisumbag na kini sa makadaghang higayon ug gibunalan og botelya.

Migula ang impormasyon nga kalit lamang mibiya si Lynlyn niadtong gagmay pa ang mga bata gumikan miuban kini sa laing lalaki.

Gilayong giadtoan sa mga pulis ang nangulata aron dakpon, apan misibat kini sa lugar. (Jeepy P. Compio )

On the Arbitral Tribunal's Rejection of Beijing’s Claims in the South China Sea

“Xi Jinping has lost face here, and it will be difficult for China to do nothing,” said Bonnie S. Glaser, a senior adviser for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. “I expect a very tough reaction from China, since it has lost on almost every point. There is virtually nothing that it has won.”

The largest country in the world by area, Russia has plenty of room to hide things. Naturally, that includes nuclear missiles. Unlike American missiles, which are stationed in concrete silos, Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are deployed on large truck-like vehicles designed to prowl the country's road networks before unleashing Armageddon.

Russia Today has a story on a Russian strategic missile exercise that involves a massive convoy traveling from European-Russian border all the way to the Mongolian border. Russian mobile ICBMs have established, permanent bases but leave in groups on month-long patrols. This particular 400-vehicle convoy includes Topol, Topol-M, and Yars mobile missiles, as well as command and control, security, and logistics vehicles.

BEIJING, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese president and premier said China will not accept any proposition or action based on the decision Tuesday by the South China Sea arbitral tribunal.

President Xi Jinping said the South China Sea Islands have been China's territory since ancient times. China's territorial sovereignty and maritime interests in South China Sea, in any circumstances, will not be affected by the award.

He made the remarks on Tuesday afternoon while meeting with European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Beijing.

China has always been a guardian of international rule of law and of fairness and justice, and will always adhere to the path of peaceful development, Xi said.

China is firmly committed to peace and stability in the South China Sea, and to settling the disputes with countries directly involved, through peaceful negotiations based on the recognition of historical facts and in accordance with international law, he said.

Also on Tuesday, Premier Li Keqiang said that by not accepting nor recognizing the award, China is in fact safeguarding the international law.

Li's statement came as he co-chaired the 18th China-EU Summit with Tusk and Juncker at the Great Hall of the People.

A tribunal in The Hague has rejected China's claims to economic rights across large swathes of the South China Sea.

"There was no legal basis for China to claim historic rights to resources within the sea areas falling within the 'nine-dash line'," the court said.

BEIJING - The Philippine government has given its nationals a checklist of sorts, apparently meant to prepare them for the possible backlash of a UN arbitral tribunal ruling on Manila's challenge to China's "excessive" maritime claims.

Ahead of a ruling expected to be issued July 12 by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, Philippine nationals in China this weekend received mobile phone text messages from their embassy, warning them not to discuss politics in public and to avoid engaging in discussions on social media.

They were advised to carry their passports and residency permits with them at all times and to contact the embassy or Chinese police if there are any untoward incidents.

China says much of the building and reclamation work it has been doing in the South China Sea is to benefit the international community, including for civilian maritime navigation.
