Democracies move closer to Taiwan as China becomes more belligerent https://endgradeinflation.org/democracies-move-closer-to-taiwan-as-china-becomes-more-belligerent/ Tue, 19 Oct 2021 02:10:31 +0000 https://endgradeinflation.org/democracies-move-closer-to-taiwan-as-china-becomes-more-belligerent/ In 2019, former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott refused to participate in the Yushan Forum in Taiwan, an annual dialogue on cooperation between Taiwan and its neighbors, fearing the acceptance would provoke China, which views the island as a separatist province with no activity to host such events.

In 2019, former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott refused to participate in the Yushan Forum in Taiwan, an annual dialogue on cooperation between Taiwan and its neighbors, fearing the acceptance would provoke China, which views the island as a separatist province with no activity to host such events.

This year, however, Abbott not only attended the annual forum, but took the opportunity to criticize China’s aggression against Taiwan, including its accelerated incursions into the Taiwan air defense zone.

Also last week, a delegation of French senators arrived in Taiwan, defying repeated warnings from China to stay away.

One member, Olivier Cadic, went so far as to say that their visit sent a message to the world that Taiwan is not alone in its struggle.

Such solidarity is striking given the decades-long marginalization of Taiwan by world powers who have sought to appease China to facilitate business there.

Smaller countries have also started to seek closer ties with Taiwan.

Earlier this year, Lithuania withdrew from an economic cooperation agreement with China, while announcing in July that it would establish a representative office in Taipei. Taiwan will also be allowed to open an office in Vilnius under its own name, a move that enraged Beijing so much that it withdrew its ambassador.

There are various reasons why Taiwan suddenly finds itself with so many friends, one of which is economic.

Due to its expertise in critical areas such as advanced chip manufacturing, its astute development policy, and a COVID-19 response that has left the island relatively unscathed, Taiwan’s economy is expected to grow by nearly 6% this year, an achievement that has attracted both foreign investors and governments looking to increase their bottom line.

Analyst Brian Hioe suggests that having benefited little from their ties with China, smaller European countries like Lithuania may see a greater benefit in strengthening their ties with Taiwan.

Another reason for Taiwan’s newfound popularity is political.

As international affairs commentator Fareed Zakaria observes, with the rise of authoritarianism, Taiwan is a “rare bright spot” for democracy around the world – the result, he argues, of a competent government, public confidence and broad participation in the democratic process.

As well as reassuring liberals in dark times, he suggests that Taiwan’s success under the shadow of Chinese intimidation is reminiscent of the struggles of other young democracies, such as those in Eastern Europe with an equally Russia. threatening nearby.

Finally, Taiwan’s main draw to countries like Australia and France is that the island could become their first line of defense amid growing awareness that the vast power China has amassed under it. aegis of global compliance poses a threat to the very nations that have made it possible.

What changed Abbott’s view after 2019, he said, included Beijing’s brutal crackdown in Hong Kong and Xinjiang, a deadly brawl between Chinese and Indian troops in the Himalayas, threats to other claimants in the East and South Seas of China and the spiral of Chinese military aggression across the Taiwan Strait.

Yet China has made threats against Abbott’s own country, once an enthusiastic partner in Chinese development. Australia has become a primary target for Beijing’s “wolf warrior” tactics – diplomatic bullying that has alienated governments around the world perceived to have views hostile to Chinese interests.

“Australia has no problem with China,” Abbott said. “We welcome trade, investment, and sightseeing, without putting more emphasis on being the gum on China’s boot.”

Hectoring is not the only thing that worries Australians.

In September, Australia, Britain and the United States announced a historic security pact to help Canberra acquire nuclear-powered submarines, no doubt as to the subject of their concerns over security: China’s military strengthening in the region.

As many point out, one of the effects of China’s belligerence has been to push friendly nations like Australia and France to forge closer relations with its rival, the United States, which until recently were largely the only ones supporting Taiwan.

Even a longtime ally, Japan, has been cautious of US efforts to enlist its aid for fear of damaging trade and security relations with Beijing.

But that too has started to change.

Keiji Furuya, a Taiwanese politician from the dominant Liberal Democratic Party in Japan, told the Yushan Forum that Chinese coercion has pushed Japan and Taiwan to develop a new model of bilateral cooperation.

“The friendship between our two countries is reflected in our response to these trials and difficulties (created by China),” Furuya said, adding that Japan, the United States and Taiwan must take progressive and substantial steps to establish a platform for trilateral security cooperation.

Hioe also suggests that countries donating vaccine doses to Taiwan could be a form of “diplomatic signal”, a way of indirectly demonstrating “alignment with Western countries that support Taiwan, such as the United States.”

Analysts have asked why Beijing has adopted seemingly counterproductive policies, especially when it comes to Taiwan and the United States.

Just a few years ago, Taiwan was virtually isolated, and as Peter Martin writes in Foreign Affairs, Beijing seemed to be in control, signing a wide range of global agreements at a time when US President Donald Trump was alienating himself. its allies.

According to Martin, Beijing’s actions stem from overconfidence and “a belief in Western and especially American weakness and decadence.”

Others, like Sung Wen-ti, a professor at the Australian National University, see the recent belligerence as an attempt by Chinese leader Xi Jinping to incite nationalism.

Yet if the increase in military incursions around Taiwan is “more of a spectacle” than a real threat, as Sung puts it, it seems to have occurred to Beijing that its approach may have backfired.

Noting a speech by Xi earlier this month that was surprisingly quiet in tone, American academic and columnist Walter Russell Mead suggests that with China’s fortunes not being too sure of late, “(the ) the goal is to shake the sabers without starting a fight, while Beijing waits for better times. “

Writing in the Wall Street Journal, he said, “To keep the economy going, China needs to hit its neighbors rather than slap them.

A group of crawling hippos, introduced by the late Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar to his private zoo, are sterilized by the country’s wildlife services, after fearing the herd of 80 could present a potential environmental disaster in as an invasive species.

The so-called “cocaine hippos,” whose numbers have more than doubled since 2012, have been sterilized after concerns mounted over their environmental impact, including a threat to human security.

The decision to neutralize the herd’s reproductive potential comes after a study earlier this year concluded the animals had become a danger. Hippos, which were originally introduced to the Hacienda Napoles d’Escobar estate, are one of the most enduring legacies of the notorious cocaine trafficker, who was killed by police in 1993.

The study, conducted by researchers from Mexican and Colombian universities, found that the hippos had reproduced so successfully that they dispersed from their original home, nearly 160 km to the east of the city of Medellín, in the department of Antioquia, dispersing around the Magdalena River. basin and, as such, should be considered a major invasive species.

The study, published in the journal Biological Conservation, recommended culling the herd. But others have promoted sterilization, citing animal rights concerns and support for African intruders who have become a tourist attraction that locals love.

Enrique Zerda Ordóñez, a biologist at the National University of Colombia, told CNN earlier this year that chemical castration was the only way forward, but acknowledged that neutering a hippo was no easy task.

According to an update this week, the Colombian government has so far sterilized 24 with a chemical that makes them infertile.

After Escobar’s death, the hippos were left to fend for themselves at the Hacienda Napoles as they proved too difficult to capture and transport. They quickly began to expand into the surrounding area.

It is not yet known whether the new campaign to reduce the herd will be successful, but hippos appear to be well adapted to their new South American home, even at the expense of native species.

The Biological Conservation Study cited research on the negative effect of hippo droppings on oxygen levels in water bodies, which can affect fish and ultimately humans. The newspaper also raised concerns about the transmission of diseases from hippos to humans.

The pandemic brought healthcare in the Asia-Pacific region at a unique time. COVID-19 has exposed vulnerabilities in the health system and amplified health inequalities. He also vividly demonstrated how a shared sense of urgency and a common goal galvanized unprecedented innovation, accelerated regulation and the move towards sustainability. There is a risk, however, that as the pandemic subsides, the region may lose this innovation drive.

The crisis is far from over in APAC. Health systems shocked by a pandemic still struggle to cope with the twin challenges of the fallout from missed diagnoses, delayed treatments and pressures to do more with less in the face of growing patient populations and increasing burden non-communicable diseases. COVID-19 has shown how inefficient a hospital-centric model of care is and that the future of care requires patient-centric virtual care and data-driven solutions integrated into the continuum of care, from prevention from precision to personalized care.

APAC’s health systems are very complex, with enormous disparities in terms of access, coverage and quality between countries and often within countries. Too often, regulation is fragmented and fails to keep pace with emerging technologies, creating barriers to scaling up much-needed technology solutions and limiting the value it can create from evidence-based decision making. data to fight inequalities.

As the world reinvents public health, APAC has a unique opportunity to dramatically advance health at scale to ensure a better future for those who may not have a voice now. Personalized healthcare and shifting a one-size-fits-all approach by embracing innovation and decision-making based on real-world data and evidence are key to achieving long-term resilience. This requires close collaboration across the ecosystem and responsive regulatory frameworks to support the rapidly changing environment of health technology and digital data. The Asia-Pacific Custom Health Index can help kick-start this shift, providing the tools and tangible recommendations to help policymakers meet challenges and build resilient and sustainable health systems.

At the HIMSS21 conference on October 19, Ryan harper, Managing Director of Roche Singapore; Dr Charles Alessi, clinical director of HIMSS; Dr Nares Damrongchai, CEO of Genepeutic Bio; and Peter Forbes, Group Chief Digital Officer, National University Health System, Singapore, will discuss why the present moment provides the ideal conditions for digital innovation in healthcare in APAC in a session titled “The right care at the right time: why now is the time for personalized health care. ‘1 These experts will provide new insight into how mission-based ecosystem collaboration and agile regulation can optimize evidence-based innovation and play an important role in fighting disease and improving health outcomes. .

Netflix’s Squid Game gets the Honest Trailer treatment in a new video, usurping the dystopian Korean thriller that has become an international hit.

by netflix Squid game got the Honest Trailer treatment in a new video spoofing the hit Korean drama. Since its initial release, Squid game has become number one on Netflix in many countries including the United States. The unique blend of sleek visual aesthetics and brutal social commentary on the violence inherent in capitalism became a fairly popular combo, the shoot Squid game at the top of the streaming charts. However, even such a respected show is not above being faked on YouTube.

Sure, Squid game the story is not without inherent humor, although most are of the darker variety. The games that make up most of the show are absurd nightmares, mixing the lightness and frivolity of childhood play with brutal violence. Squid game the bright colors – mainly those often associated with youth – become distorted and twisted by their context, adding to the grotesque nature of the show. It’s not explicitly a black comedy, but the storylines are so kinky that Squid game often enters this territory.

SAN FRANCISCO – (BUSINESS WIRE) – October 11, 2021–

RxCell, a Bay Area-based biotechnology company focused on therapeutic applications of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC), in collaboration with the Agency for Science’s Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB), Technology and Research (A * STAR), Yong La Loo Lin School of Medicine at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) announced a co-funded collaboration to develop cell therapies for disease age-related.

As life expectancy increases, the prevalence of disability and morbidity associated with age-related diseases, including age-related retinal degeneration and musculoskeletal degeneration, is on the rise. This collaboration will develop next-generation cell therapies to overcome these challenges. “The loss of adult stem cell function contributes to aging and many associated diseases. Using stem cells to mitigate this decline in endogenous stem cell function is a new approach that may have broad benefits, ”said Professor Brian Kennedy, director of the NUS Center for Healthy Longevity.

Through this collaboration, RxCell will bring its clinical-grade iPSC as well as its hypoimmunogenic iPSC generated by its proprietary technologies, which confer the advantage of being able to evade the host’s immune system and avoid an unwanted immune response. This will complement IMCB’s expertise in retinal disease and animal modeling, NUS’s expertise in age-related cell therapy strategies, and SERI’s expertise in eye disease models in rabbits and non-human primates.

“This research collaboration underscores the value of academic and industrial partnerships that play a critical role in translating new scientific findings into important new therapies for better health outcomes. It further demonstrates the role of A * STAR in adding dynamism to the local biotech ecosystem, ”said Prof. Hong Wanjin, Executive Director of IMCB.

“At RxCell, we are excited to establish a common lab to work with IMCB, A * STAR, NUS and SERI to advance our efforts to deliver much-needed new therapies to treat age-related health issues,” said said Professor Xianmin Zeng, Founder and CEO of RxCell .

“Our partnership with RxCell signals Singapore’s decision to harness regenerative stem cell technologies to improve health outcomes. As an ophthalmologist and clinician scientist, I am excited about the potential for vision restoration for patients with otherwise blinding conditions. In the near future, we plan to conduct a first human clinical trial in Singapore, ”said Dr Su Xinyi, Principal Investigator at IMCB and vitreoretinal consultant at National University Hospital.

“Currently available therapies cannot fully restore vision if a large number of cells in the retina are already damaged or lost. Cell therapy offers the possibility of regenerating lost or damaged tissue and therefore improving the outlook for patients, ”said Professor Gemmy Cheung, senior consultant responsible for Medical Retina (SNEC).

SEOUL, Oct. 10 (Reuters) – Lee Jae-myung became the presidential candidate for South Korea’s ruling party on Sunday, hoping to overcome a real estate scandal and rally national support as Tory opponents trade spades against anal acupuncture and fortune tellers.

Lee, governor of Gyeonggi province and underdog of the party often critical of incumbent President Moon Jae-in, sealed his primary victory to represent the Democratic Party in the March 9 presidential election. Moon cannot stand for re-election under Korean law.

The leading candidate among a fractured group of mainstream conservative People’s Power, Yoon Seok-youl, has been caught up in his own scandals – including murky ties to an anal acupuncturist – and criticism he is basing on good-tellers. adventure.

“Previously, it was at most one candidate who had experienced such scandals, but the first two are both involved in scandals in this election, which shows that South Korea is regressing politically,” Lee Jun- han, professor of political science at Incheon National University.

Lee got 50.29% of the vote in an 11-round primary that ended on Sunday. His closest rival and initially establishment favorite, former Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon, finished with 39.14%.

His image as an outsider was once seen as a handicap to establishment competitors with closer ties to the outgoing Moon, but Lee rose to prominence with an aggressive response to the pandemic and a populist economic agenda.

Harassed by a scandal involving a residential development plan when he was mayor of Seongnam in 2015, Lee used his acceptance speech to promise progress on political issues, including pushing for a universal basic income and more affordable housing amid skyrocketing house prices.

Next year’s election represents “the ultimate battle against the corrupt establishment,” he said.

Prosecutors and police investigated the Seongnam Project amid controversy over Lee’s links to a former official, who was arrested for corruption related to the deal.

Lee has denied any wrongdoing. His office did not respond to requests for comment.

Housing scandals are a particularly sensitive issue for voters in South Korea, where house prices have soared beyond the reach of many. Lee’s party has been damaged by allegations of real estate speculation.

On the other hand, Tory Yoon – a former attorney general who joined the opposition after rising to prominence in a political fight with President Moon – was coerced in a televised debate last week to distance himself from an unlicensed anal acupuncturist.

Yoon denied knowing the acupuncturist and said he “rarely” meets fortune tellers or shamans, who practice an ethnic Korean animist religion that dates back to prehistoric times and is widely consulted in South Korea.

The Yonhap News Agency said prosecutors were investigating a political interference scandal possibly involving Yoon. He cited him as calling the allegations a “political plot” to derail his candidacy.

Yoon denied any wrongdoing while he was a prosecutor. His campaign did not respond to requests for comment from Reuters.

His rival in the PPP primary, Hong Joon-pyo, on Saturday called a possible clash between Lee and Yoon a “criminal election.”

A combined poll of four voting services last week found Lee leading Yoon 44% to 33% in a hypothetical two-way race.

Conservatives made gains in local elections in April as the Democratic Party was mired in scandals, but wrangling in the primaries over things like shamanism threatens their chances of capitalizing in regular elections, Yang Seung-ham said. , longtime political analyst.

Now Patton has moved to Austin, Texas, with the position of Head of People Analytics for Facebook. While Lone Star State has a lot to offer, Patton said there is no place like Magnolia State. Born in Greenville and raised in Batesville, Patton has a special connection to the Mississippi.

“One of the things that has prepared me for all the different roles is the community aspect of Mississippi and how friendly people are,” Patton said. “You meet people from all walks of life in Mississippi, which I really appreciate. I think being able to interact with and find something in common with literally anyone in any spectrum is such a precious thing that a lot of people in Mississippi have. Not everywhere I go outside of (Mississippi) has this.
