Belt and Road can ‘solve global woes’

http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1045273.shtml By Yang Sheng Source:Global Times Published: 2017/5/3 23:53:40 China's One Belt and One Road initiative, which takes the form of six "economic corridors" connecting China and other countries with infrastructure projects and investments, will benefit the economies of the participants and stabilize many regions, experts said. Given that the slow improvements in transport connectivity and infrastructure among different countries are a major obstacle to global economic recovery and cause conflicts and disputes, "the Belt and Road initiative will build infrastructure to bridge different economies and countries, and it can solve the global problems or at least stabilize many regions with economic growth," said Wang Yiwei, senior research fellow at the Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies of the Renmin University of China. The ambitious initiative, comprising the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Marit

Moderated by Paulo Casaca, Executive Director of the SADF, among those who participated in the event were Ryszard Czarnecki, MEP and Vice-President of the EP, Fulvio Martusciello, MEP, Siegfried Wolf, Senior Researcher on OBOR at the SADF, and Mehran Marri, Baloch representative to the EU.   In his opening remarks, Casaca spoke of the need for greater clarity on OBOR, in view of its still ambiguous nature, and the rapid pace at which it was being used by Chi

How the intelligence services are diversifying

https://www.chathamhouse.org/publications/twt/no-longer-just-male-and-pale No longer just male and pale GCHQ’s Nikesh Mehta on how the intelligence services are diversifying We live in an increasingly complex world, one marked in recent years by terrorist attacks across Europe inspired by a group hidden in the recesses of the internet and the turmoil of Syria and Iraq. In such hazardous times, the UK intelligence community must ensure we have the right people to keep Britain safe. Following the 2015 Paris terrorist attacks, the government announced that an additional 2,000 intelligence officers would be hired across the Government Communications Headquarters, GCHQ, MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service, or SIS, by 2020. This amounts to a 15 per cent rise in agency ranks – the biggest expansion since the 7/7 bombings. But the number of new recruits joining our ranks is not the only factor that will determine our success in disrupting terrorist attacks or organized crime. Critica

BY JOSEPH TREVITHICK MAY 1, 2017 YOUTUBE SCREENGRAB SHARE While body counts are not a particularly useful metric of a military operation’s success, they can be a good indicator of how intense things have been on the ground. So, if the official tally is accurate, the U.S.-led special operations task force fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria, which includes America’s shadowy Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), foreign partners, and private contractors, has had a massive and potentially lopsided impact on the mission. On April 14, 2017, members of Special Operations Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve’s (SOJTF-OIR) headquarters element received new, distinctive unit patches at a ceremony at an undisclosed location somew
