Spiritual Bud Blossoms!

May 1

 

FEAR OF THE ELEMENTS

 

The elements are as much foes to beings as they are friends. And that is the paradox in life on earth.   

 

The earth is called mother earth because she brings up and nourishes beings. But an earthquake or a volcano swallows them up wholesale. Flood, fire, cyclone – these are other frowns of nature that man dreads. Warring with them takes away much of his time, energy and resources.                                                                                 

 

Natural calamities are quite common. Man has to learn to brave them instead of fearing them or complaining to God against them.

- Vedānta

USA Africa Dialogue Series - iPoem 6: Ibadan Invited Me...

Ibadan invited me


...and I came,
enchanted,
into its 
troublesome embrace

a non-Mesiogo:
         my legs ached
         my brain throbbed
         my hair greyed
         my loins flourished
and still Ibadan held me
in its troublesome embrace

It's more than a score years already
more than the life time
of most meaningful affairs

Is it still morning yet
in this romance?

I am a non-Mesiogo
yet Ibadan embraced me

Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Tomorrow is the 1st of May

Sir:
Tomorrow will witness the usual vain rhetoric, pseudomilitant hand pumping, puerile labour sloganeering and longer speeches that would not lead to any meaningful decision or action about the plight of workers in Nigeria. Of course, they may even pay lip service to the memories of those whose efforts they cannot match.

Labour has been bought and neutered...it happened a long time ago. The beautyful ones are long gone!

China poised to pass US as world's
leading economic power this year

By Chris Giles, Economics Editor



Central Shanghai: China is likely to be the world's richest country by next year

The US is on the brink of losing its status as the world's largest economy, and is likely to slip behind China<http://www.ft.com/intl/world/asia-pacific/china> this year, sooner than widely

 anticipated, according to the world's leading statistical agencies.

The US has been the global leader since overtaking the UK in 1872. Most economists previously thought China would pull ahead in 2019.

The figures, compiled by the International Comparison Program hosted by the World Bank, are the most authoritative estimates of what
 money can buy in different countries and are used by most public and private sector organisations, such as the International Monetary
 Fund. This is the first time they have been updated since 2005.

After extensive research on the prices of goods and services, the ICP concluded that money goes further in poorer countries than it

 previously thought, prompting it to increase the relative size of emerging market <http://blogs.ft.com/beyond-brics/> economies.

The estimates of the real cost of living, known as purchasing power parity or PPPs, are recognised as the best way to compare the

 size of economies rather than using volatile exchange rates, which rarely reflect the true cost of goods and services: on this measure

 the IMF put US GDP in 2012 at $16.2tn, and China's at $8.2tn.

In 2005, the ICP thought China's economy was less than half the size of the US, accounting for only 43 per cent of America's total.

 Because of the new methodology - and the fact that China's economy has grown much more quickly - the research placed

 China's GDP at 87 per cent of the US in 2011.

For 2011, the report says: "The US remained the world's largest economy, but it was closely followed by China when

 measured using PPPs."

China: The Wet Dream of American Oligarchs

By Carl Gibson, Reader Supported News

28 April 14

[http://readersupportednews.org/images/stories/alphabet/rsn-I.jpg]f you have all the money in the world, but there's nothing in the world worth buying, then what's the point of having so much money in the first place?

Two crucial new tidbits of information coming out of China are helping to paint a fuller picture of the long-lasting damage from the unrestrained capitalism

 that's evident in the world's most populous nation. A newly-released Chinese state secret revealed that one-fifth of China's farmland is unusable<http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/china-countrys-farmland-polluted-23372981> due to

 toxins in the soil leaked by industry. Worse still, 60 percent<http://rt.com/news/154268-underground-water-china-polluted/> of China's groundwater is undrinkable, for the same reasons.

When you combine China's dwindling natural resources with its massive population that encompasses 20 percent of the planet, it's easy to see how

 China will inevitably lead itself to societal collapse if it continues its brand of entirely unregulated capitalism. While China is technically known as a

Communist country, it's actually outdoing the US when it comes to establishing a completely unregulated business environment.

China's Ruthless Capitalism

Labor regulations in China are almost nonexistent - 30,000 workers just recently went on strike<http://therealnews.com/t2/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=31&Itemid=74&jumival=11777> at a factory that produces Nike and Adidas shoes,

 protesting low pay and dangerous working conditions. And China's Foxconn plant, responsible for the manufacturing of Apple technology,

 has gotten plenty of attention since its workers - many of them children<http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2013/jan/25/apple-child-labour-supply> - threatened mass suicide several years ago.

Environmental regulations are similarly loose in China, which is home to 16 of the world's 20 most polluted cities<http://theweek.com/article/index/252440/chinas-massive-pollution-problem>. China also burns as much

 coal as the rest of the world combined, meaning much of the air is so polluted that residents of certain cities can't go outside without a mask

 Lung cancer rates have skyrocketed by 465 percent in just the last three decades, and 1.2 million people died prematurely due to pollution in

 2010 alone.

One thing China has in common with the US is cronyism, evident in some businesses getting favorable treatment and paying no penalties for

 breaking the law. In China, state-owned businesses get around having to abide by laws passed by the central government. And in the US, the

 business-owned government, purchased through campaign donations and lobbying, allows rampant abuse of workers and the environment with very little accountability.......................................................................................................................................................

Surely, the workers will go to work. They will go home. They will be their families. They go suffer suffer like everyday, every week, every month, every year, etc. And it will be another "may" day for all.

The US has been the global leader since overtaking the UK in 1872. Most economists previously thought China would pull ahead in 2019.

The figures, compiled by the International Comparison Program hosted by the World Bank, are the most authoritative estimates of what
money can buy in different countries and are used by most public and private sector organisations, such as the International Monetary
Fund. This is the first time they have been updated since 2005.

After extensive research on the prices of goods and services, the ICP concluded that money goes further in poorer countries than it

previously thought, prompting it to increase the relative size of emerging market <http://blogs.ft.com/beyond-brics/> economies.

The estimates of the real cost of living, known as purchasing power parity or PPPs, are recognised as the best way to compare the

size of economies rather than using volatile exchange rates, which rarely reflect the true cost of goods and services: on this measure

the IMF put US GDP in 2012 at $16.2tn, and China's at $8.2tn.

In 2005, the ICP thought China's economy was less than half the size of the US, accounting for only 43 per cent of America's total.

Because of the new methodology - and the fact that China's economy has grown much more quickly - the research placed

China's GDP at 87 per cent of the US in 2011.

For 2011, the report says: "The US remained the world's largest economy, but it was closely followed by China when

measured using PPPs."

China: The Wet Dream of American Oligarchs

By Carl Gibson, Reader Supported News

[http://readersupportednews.org/images/stories/alphabet/rsn-I.jpg]f you have all the money in the world, but there's nothing in the world worth buying, then what's the point of having so much money in the first place?

Two crucial new tidbits of information coming out of China are helping to paint a fuller picture of the long-lasting damage from the unrestrained capitalism

that's evident in the world's most populous nation. A newly-released Chinese state secret revealed that one-fifth of China's farmland is unusable<http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/china-countrys-farmland-polluted-23372981> due to

toxins in the soil leaked by industry. Worse still, 60 percent<http://rt.com/news/154268-underground-water-china-polluted/> of China's groundwater is undrinkable, for the same reasons.

When you combine China's dwindling natural resources with its massive population that encompasses 20 percent of the planet, it's easy to see how

China will inevitably lead itself to societal collapse if it continues its brand of entirely unregulated capitalism. While China is technically known as a

Communist country, it's actually outdoing the US when it comes to establishing a completely unregulated business environment.

China's Ruthless Capitalism

Labor regulations in China are almost nonexistent - 30,000 workers just recently went on strike<http://therealnews.com/t2/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=31&Itemid=74&jumival=11777> at a factory that produces Nike and Adidas shoes,

protesting low pay and dangerous working conditions. And China's Foxconn plant, responsible for the manufacturing of Apple technology,

has gotten plenty of attention since its workers - many of them children<http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2013/jan/25/apple-child-labour-supply> - threatened mass suicide several years ago.

Environmental regulations are similarly loose in China, which is home to 16 of the world's 20 most polluted cities<http://theweek.com/article/index/252440/chinas-massive-pollution-problem>. China also burns as much

coal as the rest of the world combined, meaning much of the air is so polluted that residents of certain cities can't go outside without a mask

Lung cancer rates have skyrocketed by 465 percent in just the last three decades, and 1.2 million people died prematurely due to pollution in

2010 alone.

One thing China has in common with the US is cronyism, evident in some businesses getting favorable treatment and paying no penalties for

breaking the law. In China, state-owned businesses get around having to abide by laws passed by the central government. And in the US, the

business-owned government, purchased through campaign donations and lobbying, allows rampant abuse of workers and the environment with very little accountability.......................................................................................................................................................

Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Okey Ndibe asks: Nigeria: why are wesleeping easy when terrorists have kidnapped our children?

Thanks.

The notion that Nigeria is characterised by almost total lack of
basic infrastructure and by total lack of security is false.

I don't need to live in Nigeria or any other country in this age of
global communication to assess that country.

I shall be back to describe the character of a country that fits the
description you provide and compare that with Nigeria.

I shall also demonstrate the tragic misrepresentation by Ndibe's essay
of the govt's efforts in the fight against Boko Haram, tragic bcs it
is coming from a Nigerian, particularly one who is not supposed to be
pursuing a partisan, political agenda,speaking to the outside world
about Nigeria on an institutional platform.

thanks
