‘President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree to transfer the rights of the giant Sakhalin-2 oil and liquefied natural gas project to a new Russian company. The move comes in response to actions from “unfriendly states” and could force out foreign stakeholders, including British and Japanese investors.’https://www.rt.com/business/558205-sakhalin-project-russia-west/
‘North Korea’s (DPRK) nuclear missile program remains a major headache for the United States, and much of the wider world.
Its development would not have been possible, however, without Pyongyang’s access to Soviet technology, specifically nuclear-capable hardware that remained in Ukraine after the collapse of the USSR. This article delves into the unlikely story of the part Ukraine played in making North Korea a major threat to America and its Asian allies.
The US, South Korea and Japan share a lot of common goals, one of them being the complete de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. US President Joe Biden has once again made this point clear at the 2022 NATO summit in Madrid. Meanwhile, Washington’s allies in Asia have recently found a new reason for concern – on June 14, South Korean Foreign Minister Park Jin announced that North Korea had completed preparations for a new nuclear test.
Prior to that, in March 2022, Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un effectively ended his country’s self-imposed 2018 moratorium on testing intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) capable of reaching US soil. Now, both Seoul and Washington are anxiously awaiting news about new test launches.
How does a country which is effectively cut off from the rest of the world even achieve this level of technology? You might be surprised, but we must go to Ukraine for answers.’https://on.rt.com/bypy
‘A new paper by BMJ Editor Dr. Peter Doshi and colleagues has analysed data from the Pfizer and Moderna Covid vaccine trials and found that the vaccines are more likely to put you in hospital with a serious adverse event than keep you out by protecting you from Covid.
The pre-print (not yet peer-reviewed) focuses on serious adverse events highlighted in a WHO-endorsed “priority list of potential adverse events relevant to COVID-19 vaccines”. The authors evaluated these serious adverse events of special interest as observed in “phase III randomised trials of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines”.
A serious adverse event was defined as per the trial protocols as an adverse event that results in any of the following conditions:
life-threatening at the time of the event;
inpatient hospitalisation or prolongation of existing hospitalisation;
‘Moments after learning that the Supreme Court had overturned Roe v. Wade, Ivy, the supervisor at the Houston Women’s Clinic, who has worked there for nearly two decades, walked to a nearby room and pressed her fingers to her eyes, fighting back tears.‘ Sadly her tears were not for the unborn she and others murdered!!
Which is more capitalistic; Communist Vietnam or Australia? Go to Bunnings and see where MOST of the items come from! Most are from a communist nation such as China or perhaps Vietnam. Well, perhaps Wong will learn something about capitalism from them on this visit. Sad state in which we in the “free” world find ourselves in today!
