How China’s Belt and Road Initiative Went Astray

In taking on geopolitical overtones, the BRI has become alienated from its original economic purpose. By  Chan Kung and Yu (Tony) Pan May 07, 2020 https://thediplomat.com/2020/05/how-chinas-belt-and-road-initiative-went-astray/ Credit:  Flickr/ Recon Asia ADVERTISEMENT The most fundamental reason for China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) lies in optimizing China’s domestic economic development model, economic structure, and industrial sector, as well as solving the historical problems left over after the rapid development of the Chinese economy from 2000 to 2010. However, seven years after it was first announced, the continued advancement of the BRI is facing increasing resistance. In practice, the development of the entire initiative has deviated from the original strategic goal, as seen through two points. First, resource investment between the “Silk Road Economic Belt” (the “Belt”) and the “Maritime Silk Road” (the “Road”) is too unbalanced. In other words, the Maritime Silk Road h

It had been observed (RR, 3/20) that early and strict border control measures had checked the disease from spreading overland from China. The new waves of the infection apparently came in from the West, hitting the European part of Russia, particularly Moscow, severely. In an address to the nation on April 2, President Putin announced an extension of the “official non-work period” – with full pay – to April 30.

Dawn has stopped fact check even for op-eds!

Corona in Kashmir https://www.dawn.com/news/1555186/corona-in-kashmir   This is proof of atrocity in Kashmir: " Videos and photographs of police brutality — of citizens lined up in chowks and beaten with lathis in Jammu city — are being circulated. " There is more: “ The Kashmir Valley has 97 ventilators for three million people, a ratio rightly remarked to be “even lower than besieged Gaza”. This works out to 33 ventilators per million compared to 15 ventilators per million in Pakistan as a whole.  And, Azad Kashmir? No idea. Dawn has stopped fact check even for op-eds! And, by the way, the writer is a barrister.  This tells you that the Anglophone  elite is now fully invested in the anti-India project.

Terrorism Victim Activism : B. Raman

The most important points arising from these deliberations were: The convergence of views that terrorism is an absolute evil for which there can  be no excuse or justification.  While acting against terrorism, the States should ensure that counter-terrorism itself does not become the

Don’t Regulate Artificial Intelligence: Starve It

https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/dont-regulate-artificial-intelligence-starve-it/ The potential dangers of this technology are great enough that we need to be very careful about how powerful we allow it to be By  William Davidow ,  Michael S. Malone  on  May 4, 2020 Credit:  Getty Images ADVERTISEMENT Artificial intelligence is still in its infancy. But it may well prove to be the most powerful technology ever invented. It has the potential to improve health, supercharge intellects, multiply productivity, save the environment and enhance both freedom and democracy. But as that intelligence continues to climb, the danger from using AI in an irresponsible way also brings the potential for AI to become a social and cultural H-bomb. It’s a technology that can deprive us of our liberty, power autocracies and genocides, program our behavior, turn us into human machines and, ultimately, turn us into slaves. Therefore, we must be very careful about the ascendance of AI; we don

First CPEC and now China’s Covid-19: Gilgit-Baltistan’s growing woes | Opinion

First CPEC and now China’s Covid-19: Gilgit-Baltistan’s growing woes | Opinion Gilgit-Baltistan is not a constitutional part of Pakistan and therefore survives on financial handouts from Islamabad. Updated: May 07, 2020 07:52 IST By Senge H Sering, There is only one Covid-19 testing centre for the entire Gilgit-Baltistan territory with capacity to test 15 people per day. Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B), in proportion to population, has the highest number of Covid-19 cases in Pakistan. So far, 607 people have tested positive in a territory with less than one and half million people. Heroes like Dr. Osama Riaz and paramedic Malik Ashtar who unfortunately died while performing duties without virus protective kits have become a source to galvanize society. Locals blame the authorities for committing criminal negligence by not transporting Dr. Osama to Islamabad to save his life. Dismal economic condition and lack of preparedness could lead to more deaths in coming weeks. G-B is not a constitutional
