Slump in Japanese exports to harm GDP growth as inflation falls again

first_img whatsapp Slump in Japanese exports to harm GDP growth as inflation falls again Thursday 25 November 2010 7:56 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share JAPAN’S export market stalled in October, failing to grow on the previous month, it was announced yesterday.Compared to October 2009 Japanese exports grew 7.8 per cent, yet this was below the Bloomberg median projection of 10.7 per cent – and far weaker than September’s year-on-year growth of 14.3 per cent.Year-on-year improvements peaked in February, hitting a staggering 45.3 per cent. Rates of growth have been decelerating since – making October the eighth consecutive month in which export growth has decelerated. As exports fell, imports rose, growing by 8.7 per cent on the previous year, and 0.7 per cent on September. Exports fell to both of Japan’s key trading partners, China and the US. Yet the most drastic decline came in exports to the European Union. In September exports to the region increased by 11.2 per cent, yet last month they actually fell, recording a rate of -1.2 per cent.The decline could continue, and have a negative effect on Japanese GDP, according to observers. Kyohei Morita and Yuichiro Nagai of Barclays Capital Research “look for a decline in the fourth quarter as a whole. We believe exports – together with private consumption – will cause real GDP to contract during that period,” they added.Meanwhile, data yesterday revealed that Japan’s core consumer prices fell 0.6 per cent in October from a year earlier, down for the 20th consecutive month, pointing to persistent deflation. center_img Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteUndoTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

The existing semi-detached house was a 30 year old house that had stood the test of time. Our clients approached us for a reconstruction of the existing house- with the intention to cater for their family consisting of the couple and their 2 young children.Save this picture!© Edward HendricksSave this picture!© Edward HendricksFrom the start, our brief was not to maximize the buildable area. The family appreciated the outdoors and the greenery in front of the house was to be preserved. It was a play area the children would most enjoy on an elevated land a few steps above the car porch.In rethinking the use of the spaces, we sought to make the indoor spaces functional whilst enhancing them with a connection to the outdoors.Save this picture!© Edward HendricksThe ground floor public areas were “opened up” by demolishing the enclosing walls and enhancing natural light and ventilation with full height glass doors.A generously spacious timber patio outside of the living room was proposed to allow the living room to extend outside. A textured featured wall continues the dialogue from the inside to the outside and effectively blurs the boundaries.Save this picture!© Edward HendricksThe result is a living room that is bright and airy. Stepping up to the dining area, the space for dining is similarly allowed to spill outwards with an extension of a outdoor timber deck – creating a romantic space for after hours relaxation after a family gathering.The roof was redesigned to include a series of skylights above the straight flight of stairs to the second storey.Save this picture!DiagramA generous family area greets one on the second storey. where a lush outdoor planter (which the Owners had a free-hand choosing the plant mix) spans the entire length. The planter is accessible by large sliding aluminum glass doors, and effectively brings in natural light and greenery to the upper storey.The planter also is visible from the common bath to the family area and stretches to peak into the master bathroom.Save this picture!© Edward HendricksThe master bedroom is located in the front of the house. We designed the balcony space in front of the large bedroom with a more sensitive touch akin to a “sky patio” with a series of sliding timber screens. The Owners were able to adjust their placement in accordance to their preferences for lighting and privacy.Save this picture!DiagramProject gallerySee allShow lessTaipei MRT Daan Park Station / Che Fu Chang ArchitectsSelected ProjectsMelbourne Tower is Inspired by the Folds of OrigamiUnbuilt Project Share “COPY” Singapore Architects: ADX Architects Area Area of this architecture project House with Screens / ADX ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHouse with Screens / ADX Architects Photographs Area:  360 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project House with Screens / ADX Architects CopyHouses, Restoration•Singapore ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardcenter_img ArchDaily “COPY” 2016 Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Edward Hendricks+ 21 Share Projects Photographs:  Edward Hendricks Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeADX ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRestorationSingaporePublished on May 06, 2016Cite: “House with Screens / ADX Architects” 06 May 2016.

New Philippines president to face big challenges

first_imgBy Prof. Jose Maria Sison The author is chairperson of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle and chief political consultant of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines.Jose Maria SisonThe newly elected Philippine president, who promises to be the country’s first left president, studied political thought under the author of this article.Within 24 hours after the Philippine elections closed at 5 p.m. on May 9, Rodrigo Duterte of the opposition Pilipino Democratic Party-Laban registered in the automated vote count of the Commission on Elections a landslide victory in his bid for the Philippine presidency. His rivals, Grace Poe of the Independent Party, Jejomar Binay of the United Nationalist Alliance and Mar Roxas of the ruling Liberal Party, conceded defeat one after the other.What was widely feared as a scheme of the ruling Liberal Party to cheat did not materialize or could not be carried out because of serious warnings of popular uprising against electoral fraud. Those that issued warnings included respected institutions and movements, all opposition parties, critical sections of the reactionary armed forces and police, the revolutionary forces of the Communist Party of the Philippines, the New People’s Army and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, and the Bangsamoro national liberation movements.Apparently foreign monopoly interests and the local oligarchy of big compradors and landlords have advised the Aquino government that it was a better choice to desist from electoral fraud and avoid the risk of widespread and uncontrollable civil strife. They are confident that a Duterte presidency would still be financially and politically manageable by using as lever the underdevelopment and poverty of the Philippines and the huge foreign debt and total public debt of the Philippines, amounting to more than U.S.$77 billion and Php 164 trillion, respectively.One notable result of the elections is the defeat of the son of the late Filipino dictator, Ferdinand E. Marcos, in his bid for the vice presidency. For a while it seemed that he would succeed by riding on the protest vote against the corrupt, brutal and incompetent Aquino regime. But he has been defeated by the vice presidential candidate of the Liberal Party, Leni Robredo, who strongly reminded the electorate of the brutality of the Marcos dictatorship and the complicity of Marcos junior in stashing away the billions of dollars stolen by his father from the people.The significance of the electoral victory of Leni Robredo goes beyond stopping in its tracks the drive of the Marcos dynasty to take back supreme political power in the Philippines. She is expected by the Liberal Party to serve as a check on Duterte and a constant reminder of his vulnerability to a coup or to impeachment by a House of Representatives and Senate still dominated by the Liberal Party. But, of course, Duterte is well aware of his own share of retired and active military and police officers, and the opportunism of congressmen and senators who traditionally switch loyalty to a new president.Because of his overwhelming electoral victory, Duterte is expected to win further popular support by carrying out his campaign pledge to punish corrupt officials and wipe out criminality, especially the syndicates engaged in the trade of prohibited drugs and in kidnapping for ransom. The broad masses of the people are eagerly awaiting the arrest and imprisonment of the outgoing president, Benigno S. Aquino, and his budget mastermind, Florencio Abad, who have become notorious for committing plunder and unprecedented corruption in the abuse of the pork barrel system.The revolutionary movement of the people led by the Communist Party of the Philippines or CPP supports the determination of Duterte to fight corruption and criminality and welcomes his vow to declare a ceasefire with the armed revolutionary movement and be the first left president in the history of the Philippines. In this regard, the CPP has urged him to free the hundreds of political prisoners, accelerate the peace negotiations and address the roots of the civil war by adopting basic economic, social and political reforms.The newly elected president takes pride in having been a student of the CPP founding chairman in political thought at the Lyceum of the Philippines in the late 1960s, in becoming an activist of the anti-imperialist and anti-feudal youth organization, Kabataang Makabayan, and in being a long time adherent of the New Patriotic Alliance known as BAYAN. Both Kabataang Makabayan and BAYAN have been fierce opponents of the Marcos fascist dictatorship and the continuing domination of the Philippines by foreign monopoly capitalism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism.The CPP has challenged Duterte to assert the national sovereignty of the Filipino people and defend the territorial integrity of the Philippines, to let the toiling masses of workers and peasants empower themselves against the oligarchs, to develop the Philippine economy through national industrialization and genuine land reform, to promote a patriotic and progressive culture, expand the public school system, and foster international solidarity for peace and development.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Civil Rights leader pioneer John Lewis says: ‘Keep marching!’

first_imgJohn Lewis today standing at foot of the bridge where the Selma to Montgomery march took place.Congressperson John Lewis was the keynote speaker at the standing-room-only Black History Month celebration in New York City on Feb. 3. The event was held at the headquarters of District Council 37, the city’s largest civil service employees’ union.  Local labor leaders and elected officials attended.Lewis, the son of sharecroppers, was born on Feb. 21, 1940, outside Troy, Ala.  He and his nine siblings grew up on the family’s farm.  Lewis’ father saved $300 to buy the land in 1944.  At the age of 8 or 9, he said he wanted to be a preacher and began by preaching to the chickens.  He later stated, humorously, that the chickens listened better than do his colleagues in Congress.Lewis said he wanted to attend Troy State University in 1958, and wrote to Martin Luther King Jr. asking for his help.  King sent him a bus ticket to  Montgomery.  There, they first met. When he returned home, however, his parents were fearful of him attending Troy State University, so he went to the American Baptist Theological Seminary in Nashville, Tenn., instead.Lewis recalled going to the segregated movie theatre and schools in Pike County, Ala., and seeing “whites only” signs everywhere.  He remembered being turned away from the public library in 1956 at age 16. He was told that it was for whites only.  With a proud, ironic smile, he said that he returned to the same library in 1998 for a book signing for one of his books and got a library card.When he was young, he was inspired by the activism surrounding the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and by the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, whom he heard on the radio.  He decided to join the Civil Rights Movement.  From 1963 to1966 he served as chairperson of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, which he helped form.  As a student at Fisk University, he organized sit-ins at segregated lunch counters in Nashville.  SNCC was largely responsible for organizing the movement’s student activism.John Lewis in 1965.On the Freedom RidesIn 1961, Lewis participated in the Freedom Rides, which challenged segregation at interstate bus terminals across the South.  He and others risked their lives many times on these buses by simply sitting in seats reserved for white riders.  He was severely beaten by angry mobs, and burned with hot water and lit cigarettes.Police arrested the courageous young activist for challenging the injustices of Jim Crow/apartheid segregation in the South.  In the 1960s, Lewis was arrested and jailed 40 times.Lewis became a nationally recognized leader and was named one of the “Big Six” leaders of the Civil Rights Movement.  At age 23, he was a co-creator and keynote speaker at the historic August 1963 March on Washington.In 1964, Lewis coordinated SNCC efforts to organize voter registration drives and community action programs for African Americans during Mississippi Freedom Summer.  The following year, he spearheaded one of the most powerful moments of the Civil Rights Movement: He and Civil Rights leader Hosea Williams led over 600 peaceful protesters across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala., on March 7, 1965.Their intention was to march from Selma to Montgomery to demonstrate the need for voting rights in the state.  However, state troopers attacked the marchers in a brutal confrontation that became known as “Bloody Sunday.”  News broadcasts and photographs revealed the senseless cruelty of the segregated South. This helped to hasten passage of the  Voting Rights Act in 1965.Despite more than 40 arrests, brutal physical attacks and serious injuries, Lewis remained a devoted advocate of the philosophy of nonviolence.  He left SNCC in 1966 and continued his commitment to the Civil Rights Movement.  He became the director of the Voter Education Project. This organization transformed the nation’s political climate by adding nearly 40 million people of color to the voter rolls. In 1977, Lewis was appointed by President Jimmy Carter to direct more than 250,000 volunteers for the federal volunteer agency, ACTION.‘Stand up and keep marching!’Lewis was elected to the Atlanta City Council in 1981.  He was an advocate for ethics in government and neighborhood preservation.  In November 1986, he was elected to Congress and has served as U.S. representative of Georgia’s 5th Congressional District since then.  He is senior chief deputy whip for the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives and is a member of several congressional committees.In speaking about the first two weeks of the fascist-like reign of President Donald Trump, Rep. Lewis stated, “There are dark days ahead.”  He urged everyone to “stand up and keep marching.  Get in necessary trouble for what’s right and just.  Don’t get weary, keep pushing and don’t go back.  Have no fear.  You can’t stop now, and don’t despair.  Anything worth having is hard, but hang in.  Forces in D.C. need to be challenged.  You cannot be silent.”Lewis ended his remarks by saying, “I will continue to fight as long as there’s breath in my body.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Kant co-founded a non-profit organization calledKant co-founded a non-profit organization called Shatki Vahini, whose purpose is to help rescue and rehabilitate female victims of sex trafficking. The Women and Gender Studies program sponsored a lecture by Kant about sex trafficking issues in India in March.This year there were 20,000 reports of sex trafficking of women and children in India. Statistics like these inspired Kant to start Shatki Vahini with his brother, Rishi Kant, 26 years ago.On Kant’s website, the mission is to access justice for women and children affected by sex trafficking. The organization raises money to help women and children mentally, physically and financially after their assaults.Kant and his brother work diligently with the Indian government to return women and children from incidents of trafficking. Rishi works as legal representation for the victims while Ravi works as a publicist—engaging with the media and sharing victims’ stories.Because most women and girls are not accepted back into their families after sex trafficking incidents, Shatki Vahini works to find housing for women and girls after their assaults.Sex trafficking is so prevalent in India because of the cultural acceptance of child brides. Shatki Vahini works with the Indian government to get girls out of marriages–this is where Shatki Vahini focuses most of its efforts.Shatki Vahini strives to bring awareness to these issues in India but also around the world. Because most incidents of sex trafficking happen across country lines, Kant frequently lectures in Nepal and Pakistan. He recalled a recent visit to Pakistan where Shatki Vahini found a group of women who were trafficked there five years ago.Kant also travels around the United States asking students to join efforts to prevent sex trafficking. He has lectured at many universities and recently concluded a series of lectures with the Women and Gender Studies department at the University of Texas.Kant is optimistic about the future of Shatki Vahini’s role in helping women and children. He promotes advocacy and thanks Americans for their interest and willingness to put an end to sex trafficking.Kant encourages students to spread awareness about sex trafficking and to be diligent . Kant also encouraged students to apply for Shatki Vahini’s internships to work to end sex trafficking.[<a href=”//” target=”_blank”>View the story “TCU’s 2017 Global Innovator Brings Awareness about Sex Trafficking to Campus” on Storify</a>][&lt;a href=”//” target=”_blank”&gt;View the story “TCU’s 2017 Global Innovator Brings Awareness about Sex Trafficking to Campus” on Storify&lt;/a&gt;] Linkedin Review: Ali and Mortensen bring the ’60s to life in Peter Farrelly’s ‘Green Book’ Live Blog: Medical School Receives Preliminary Accreditation World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution + posts Megan Guter last_img read more

Disquiet about death penalty for man convicted of journalist’s murder

first_img Organisation March 2, 2021 Find out more News News March 29, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Disquiet about death penalty for man convicted of journalist’s murder Reporters Without Borders deplores the death sentence that a military court passed yesterday on a man found guilty of radio journalist Hassan Yusuf Absuge’s murder last September in Mogadishu. “It is not up to us to decide the nature or severity of the sentences imposed on those convicted of murdering journalists, but we cannot regard the application of the death penalty as a victory,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We hail the measures taken by the authorities to identify and punish journalists’ killers, and thereby end the vicious circle of impunity that has gone on for too long. But taking people’s lives by applying penalties that violate the most fundamental human rights is unacceptable.”The death penalty was passed on Adan Sheikh Abdi Sheikh Hussein, a member of the Islamist militia Al-Shabaab, who confessed to Absuge’s murder in the hope of receiving a less severe punishment.Employed by Radio Mantaa, Absuge was gunned down as he left the station on 21 September after covering a suicide bombing the day before that had killed around 10 people including three fellow journalists.The National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), the Reporters Without Borders partner organization in Somalia, released a report last November condemning the impunity enjoyed by the enemies of news and information and reporting that 44 journalists had been killed in Somalia since 2007.A total of 18 journalists were killed in Somali in 2012 alone, which was the deadliest year for media personnel in the country’s history.Last month, the government offered a reward of 50,000 dollars (37,500 euros) for information leading to the arrest of anyone who had murdered a journalist. Yesterday’s conviction of Hussein and the arrests of three people suspected of the murders of the journalists Mohamed Mohamud Turyare and Abdihared Osman Adan suggest that the authorities really are determined to end the impunity.
