Jimmy Lai paid Paul Wolfowitz US$75,000 for help in Myanmar

Jimmy Lai and Paul Wolfowitz meet Senior General Min Aung Hlaing

Wolfowitz's visit to Myanmar raised eyebrows last year, as he was a senior member of the US administration in 2002 when it declared then military-ruled Myanmar an "outpost of tyranny".
Lai and Wolfowitz met members of Myanmar's government, including President Thein Sein, armed forces commander-in-chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing and other high-ranking members of the Tatmadaw, Myanmar's military.
According to the Eastweek report, Lai and Wolfowitz boarded a yacht in Sai Kung on May 27 (2014) and were not seen again for five hours. Lai said it was merely a gathering of old friends. "We are good friends," he said. "He was preparing to travel to Indonesia and before then we didn't have chance to meet each other," Lai said.
Asked why the meeting lasted so long, Lai replied: "We don't just chat on the boat. We go swimming too."

Ron Paul: Don't Blame Putin For Malaysian Jet Shoot Down

Ron Paul

The former Republican presidential candidate says that the United States shares responsibility for the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Many are pointing fingers at Russian President Vladimir Putin for giving weapons to the pro-Russian Ukrainian rebels that are being linked to the shootdown of the Malaysia Airlines jet that crashed in Ukraine, but former Rep. Ron Paul says that Putin shouldn't be blamed.
The Texas Republican said that the fact that Russians may have provided the weapons to the Ukrainian rebels is not enough to put the blame on the Russian president.
"That may well be true, but guess what, ISIS has a lot of American weapons," he said. "We sent weapons into Syria to help the rebels and al-Qaida ends up getting it — it doesn't mean that our American government and Obama deliberately wanted ISIS to get American weapons."




"We are in the 21st century"

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has criticized China for not respecting international laws. He’s determined to strengthen Japan’s ties with the United States and ASEAN, to deal with China’s rise as a Pacific power.
The United States Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel spoke on "the contribution of the United States to regional stability" on Saturday, nevertheless he openly blamed China for what he called unilateral actions. Behind "the contribution of the United States to regional stability" is the United States security philosophy: Ensuring the safety of its allies by maintaining its military dominance. The US and its leaders even adopted the strategy of stoking fires to do this, with both speeches and actions.
After Abe's speech and the US defense secretary accusing China, Fu Ying, a former senior diplomat of China, said on Saturday she was surprised by some of the languages at the Shangri-La Dialogue that are "more like in the 20th century than in the 21st century."
"For us, we don't think any country can achieve security at the expense of other countries," "We are in the 21st century. We should not keep on resorting to the 20th century mentality that is about war and conflict," she said.

China Accuses U.S. and Japan Of Incitement


Reality Check: China does innovate

Joe Biden described China this week as a nation incapable of producing innovative products and ideas.
"I challenge you: Name me one innovative project, one innovative change, one innovative product that has come out of China," the vice president dared cadets at Wednesday's Air Force Academy graduation.
In fact, innovation is a key driver of China's economy. It has been for years, and the government is putting money behind it.
Chinese companies are increasing research and development spending by up to 20% a year. Meanwhile, R&D spending in the United States is growing at about 1% to 4%.
"Biden is playing to an outdated idea of China," said Shaun Rein, author of the forthcoming book "The End of Copycat China." "He is underestimating the rise of innovation in China."
Other experts agree. When McKinsey analysts examined China's economic trajectory in 2011, the country's innovation credentials "seemed like yesterday's question."

Chinese Remedies for Pollen Allergy

Remedies for Pollen Allergy

Allergic rhinitis triggered by the pollens of specific seasonal plants is commonly known as "hay fever" because it is most prevalent during haying season. However, it is possible to suffer from hay fever throughout the year. The pollen which causes hay fever varies between individuals and from region to region; generally speaking, the tiny, hardly visible pollens of wind-pollinated plants are the predominant cause.
