JIM ROGERS - Invest in Myanmar & North Korea in 2013 and beyond.
James Beeland Rogers, Jr. (born October 19, 1942) is an American investor and author. He is currently based in Singapore. Rogers is the Chairman of Rogers Holdings and Beeland Interests, Inc. He was the co-founder of the Quantum Fund with George Soros and creator of the Rogers International Commodities Index (RICI). In December 2007, Rogers sold his mansion in New York City for about 16 million USD and moved to Singapore. Rogers claimed that he moved because now is a ground-breaking time for investment potential in Asian markets. Rogers's first daughter is now being tutored in Mandarin to prepare her for the future. He is quoted as saying: "If you were smart in 1807 you moved to London, if you were smart in 1907 you moved to New York City, and if you are smart in 2007 you move to Asia." In a CNBC interview with Maria Bartiromo broadcast on May 5, 2008, Rogers said that people in China are extremely motivated and driven, and he wants to be in that type of environment, so his daughters are motivated and driven. He also stated that this is how America and Europe used to be. He chose not to move to Chinese cities like Hong Kong or Shanghai due to the high levels of pollution causing potential health problems for his family; hence, he chose Singapore. He has also advocated investing in certain smaller Asian frontier markets such as Sri Lanka and Cambodia, and currently serves as an Advisor to Leopard Capital's Leopard Sri Lanka Fund.[8] However, he is not fully bullish on all Asian nations, as he remains skeptical of India's future - "India as we know it will not survive another 30 or 40 years".[9] In 2008 Rogers endorsed Ron Paul for President of the United States. 2013 2014 myanmar burma "wall street" passion world "north korea" invest investment change "south east asia" asia east west "jim rogers" investing stamps gold silver coins "stock market" open depressed depression natural "cheap labour" tourism china chinese war communism passport citizen japan japanese population potential fortune money "black market" business control currency economy commodity premium "gold bullion" "gold coin" interview india indian russia bearish bear bull future 829speedy In September 2012 Rogers was appointed by VTB Capital as an advisor to the agricultural division of its global private equity unit. Rogers noted: "Russia and the CIS region have all the ingredients needed to become the world's agriculture powerhouse. It seems that everything may now be coming together under VTB Capital to make this happen, so I am keen to participate."[12] Investment views In 2002, Rogers said that Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan's "reaction to the stock-market bubble has caused two more bubbles to grow: a real-estate bubble and a consumer-debt bubble."[13] In 2006, Rogers said he was shorting US financials, home builders and Fannie Mae.[14][15]3 In May 2012 he remarked during an interview with Forbes Magazine that "there's going to be a huge shift in American society, American culture, in the places where one is going to get rich. The stock brokers are going to be driving taxis. The smart ones will learn to drive tractors so they can work for the smart farmers. The farmers are going to be driving Lamborghinis. I'm telling you. You should start Forbes Farming. There's no stock market. No internet. No e-mail. And despite a wealth of natural resources, from rice to gold to hydrocarbons, it's one of the poorest countries in the world. Still, I think there's a great a way to invest in the future of Myanmar: Go there. Nestled in Southeast Asia along the Bay of Bengal, Myanmar is undoubtedly the most isolated and insular nation we have visited. Crossing the border from India was like stepping back in time: Roads that had been filled with cars in India were suddenly packed only with bicycles and ox-carts. Local craftsman we met in villages measured time by watching water drip into a coconut shell. Outside of the major cities, one is hard pressed to find regular electricity. It's a lush and beautiful land: mountains in the west, north and east border a fertile river valley. Rudyard Kipling's famed "Road to Mandalay" is actually not a road but a river-the Irrawaddy-and it is still the country's primary commercial route leading down the center of the country to the Bay of Bengal

Building and Assessing Your Physical Security Program
This presentation is part of the National Center for Campus Public Safety’s free webinar series, Campus Public Safety Online. In this webinar, Margolis Healy Managing Director Dan Pascale, a Certified Protection Professional, discusses physical security programs at institutions of higher education (IHEs). This webinar is appropriate for all audiences having a role in the planning and development of a campus security program, including campus safety, facilities, information technology, and others. This webinar is intended to assist IHEs in building a comprehensive physical security program and in assessing current capabilities beyond the use of cameras and electronic access control systems. Physical security programs should highlight the interrelationships between many elements, including people, policies, standards, equipment, response, and education. Dan discusses the value and methodology for conducting self-assessments, who should participate in the assessments, and what to do with the information collected. He also explores the interrelationships amongst people, policy, and technology, and how each of these plays an equally important role in creating safer campuses. The totality of this information is used to compare your current state of security against best and promising practices, and to identify gaps and opportunities to make reasonable enhancements.
Pei Wang on Artificial General Intelligence - AGI 13 Interview
== NARS == NARS (Non-Axiomatic Reasoning System) is a general-purpose reasoning system, coming from my study of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Cognitive Sciences (CogSci). What makes NARS different from conventional reasoning systems is its ability to learn from its experience and to work with insufficient knowledge and resources. NARS attempts to uniformly explain and reproduce many cognitive facilities, including reasoning, learning, planning, reacting, perceiving, categorizing, prioritizing, remembering, decision making, and so on. The research results include a theory of intelligence, a formal model of the theory, and a computer implementation of the model. The ultimate goal of this research is to fully understand the mind, as well as to build thinking machines. Currently this research field is often called "Artificial General Intelligence" (AGI). -- https://sites.google.com/site/narswang/ == Contact == http://www.cis.temple.edu/~pwang/index.html PHONE: (215)204-9255; FAX: (215)204-5082 (department) EMAIL: [email protected] == Research Artificial Intelligence (AI): basic questions (talk in Chinese), A General Theory of Intelligence Artificial General Intelligence (AGI): introduction, journal, society, education, lecture notes Non-Axiomatic Reasoning System (NARS): introduction, project website, open-source version, discussion group, tutorial Selected publications and demonstrations, as well as my Curriculum Vitae Student participation opportunity: CST Undergraduate Research Program == Events Non-Axiomatic Logic: A Model of Intelligent Reasoning, a new book Summer School on Artificial General Intelligence, July 17 - 30, 2013 The 6th Conference on Artificial General Intelligence, July 31 - August 3, 2013

CEO interviews: AMUR Minerals' Russian backing looking strong
Robin Young – CEO of AMUR Minerals – joined Nick Batsford and Zak Mir in the Tip TV studio to discuss AMUR’s plans going forward, and how they've tackled operating in a commodity slump.

With backing directly from the Russian government, they have almost unrestricted access to Nickel operations in the Asian regions.

CSO Panel 3:Infrastructure- Driven Growth Model of Multilateral Development Banks
Investment in infrastructure has reached a new global peak. Recent forecasts estimate demand for infrastructure investment at the US $78 trillion over the next two decades globally and for Asia, at the US $730 billion per annum for 2015 – 2025. The Asian Development Bank’s and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank‘s development model rely heavily on infrastructure as an engine of growth and prosperity. Despite some recognition of necessary additions to the traditional growth model, the ADB and AIIB fail to take into account the planetary limits to growth. The scarcity of natural resources exacerbated by climate change mean that traditional large-scale infrastructure is no longer a viable path to reaching growth that leaves no one behind. In this context, safeguard policies become ever more important to ensure the protection of vulnerable communities. In addition, it is paramount that development projects are measured for their impact on the community and household level, in order to demonstrate equitable growth. This panel explores the challenges of infrastructure-driven growth, measurements of equitable growth and the adequacy of country safeguard systems to provide the necessary protections within social and environmental limits of communities and countries.

Festival of Dangerous Ideas 2013: Satyajit Das - The Australian Dream is Over
Australian dreams of prosperity were built on the wealth trinity -- a good well-paying job, a nice house and comfortable retirement financed by superannuation. Unfortunately this has now become an illusion. Australians are now members of the 'precariat', the precariously employed proletariat. Globalisation's combination of off-shoring and relentless technological change has reduced job security and income for all but a select few. Housing was seen as an Australian birth right and retirement nest egg leading to massive over-investment in real estate. Now lower housing affordability and reliance on housing prices has undermined this pillar of the Australian prosperity. As for superannuation, unrealistic expectations, poor returns and investment losses mean that the golden years of retirement funded by super have vanished. How did the great Australian dream come to this? Satyajit Das outlines the reality of Australian prosperity. In this provocative talk, he shows how in the words of historian George F. Kennan: "The truth is sometimes a poor competitor in the market place of ideas -- complicated, unsatisfying, full of dilemmas, always vulnerable to misinterpretation and abuse". Satyajit Das is a former banker and the author of the books Extreme Money and Traders Guns & Money. He is a regular financial commentator for international news outlets, and appeared in the Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job as well as television documentaries for PBS Frontline and BBC TV. Chair: Whitney Fitzsimmons hosts the Business Today program on ABC News 24 and on Australia Network. Previously, she presented news for Australia Network, worked as a senior producer for Lateline and reported on stories for the ABC's domestic news service. http://sydneyoperahouse.com/ideas Subscribe and find more videos from Ideas at the House: http://www.youtube.com/ideasatthehouse Get a new talk every week on our podcast: Audio - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640445035 Video - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640444896 Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/IdeasAtTheHouse Twitter - https://twitter.com/ideasatthehouse

Our Sexuality & Gender Labels
Hi, welcome to our channel! We're Jude and Kaitlyn, and we're here to document Jude's transition journey, both from his perspective and our perspective as a couple. Jude is FTM trans and Kaitlyn is cis female, and we've been dating since before Jude came out as FTM and began his journey. Once Jude came out, we started looking for resources to support us both, and we found they were limited with regard to couples and the partner's experience, so we created this channel as a response. We hope you enjoy our story and find comfort (and hopefully humor, too!) in all that we have to share. We look forward to building community here. Thanks for watching our story!

Russia - Save the tiger
RR9806/C - RUSSIA: SAVE THE TIGER (Duration: 5 mins 45 secs/English speech: 1 min 41 secs/Russian speech: 55 secs) One of the world's most beautiful and endangered animals is facing extinction: the Siberian Tiger. Preservation orders have done little to deter the poachers who are determined to cash in on the huge rewards for selling pelts and parts on the lucrative Asian medical and fur market. There are now only about 450 of the tigers left and local authorities in the far east of Russia are hard pressed to protect their dwindling numbers. A lot of the killing and smuggling is thought to be carried out by organised gangs and officials don't have the resources to combat this type of crime. In desperation, local authorities have turned to the World Wide Fund for Nature. The WWF has helped to develop a centralised system of patrol groups to monitor areas where poaching is most prevalent and there are plans to curb the extensive logging of the region's forests, which have been the tigers' natural habitat for centuries.

2015 Nicholas Papadopoulos Lecture: Shiri Eisner on Concocting the Bisexual Revolution
Comments from Shiri Eisner: "In the Q&A part of this lecture, I spoke about pinkwashing in a way that centered Jewish Israeli people rather than Palestinians. This is problematic as it prioritizes the people who are most privileged in this context and further marginalizes the already-marginalized. I'd like to apologize for doing so and to urge other Jewish Israelis to avoid doing this in their own accounts of the occupation and apartheid." For a free download of Shiri Eisner's article, "Love, Rage and the Occupation: Bisexual Politics in Israel/Palestine," please go to: http://www.scribd.com/doc/211201098/Love-Rage-and-the-Occupation-Bisexual-Politics-in-Israel-Palestine#scribd ----------- About the presentation: This lecture discusses the radical and subversive potential of bisexuality—its potential to be concocted into a revolution. What is bisexuality? Why does it matter? What happens when you mix bisexuality together with radical politics and with intersectionality? And how can the result be used for resisting oppressive structures? It is an attempt to describe the multiple levels in which a bi revolutionary concoction can function—from the liberation of bi people, through subversion of sexual and gender hierarchies, and to the deconstruction of all oppressive hierarchies. About the speaker: Shiri Eisner is an activist, writer and researcher residing in Tel Aviv, Israel/Occupied Palestine. Her identities include: bisexual, genderqueer, feminist, Mizrahi (Arabic Jew), disabled/chronically ill, vegan and anarchist. About the lecture: This annual endowed lecture is named for Nicholas Papadopoulos, who received his MA and PhD degrees in engineering from Harvard University. After Nick’s death from complications of AIDS in 1994, his mother created a fund in his name to support lectures about gay and lesbian studies or of interest to the gay and lesbian communities at Harvard.

Chris Reij  Gray Tappan: "Scale, Causes and Impacts of Re-Greening in Niger "
A presentation by Chris Reij, VU University, Amsterdam and USGS Data Center for Earth Resources Observation and Science, South Dakota, Gray Tappan, USGS Data Center for Earth Resources Observation and Science, South Dakota, USA.Part of the University of Chicago Program on the Global Environment's inaugural conference on the Social Life of Forests, held May 30-31, 2008.A recent study of long-term trends in agriculture and environment in Niger found large-scale re-greening of agricultural farmland areas in Niger and in particular in regions with high density population. This is not surprising in itself, as increasing population densities encourage farmers to intensify agriculture, and trees are part of the production system. The scale of this farmer-managed re-greening is surprising. It is mainly happening on farmland and extends over about 5 million ha. Farmers have indicated that they have been protecting and managing spontaneously regenerating trees since the mid-1980s. They began this practice because they had to ?fight the Sahara.? They had to combat the impacts of dust and sandstorms, as opposed to the popular notion of an advancing front of sand dunes. The ecological and economic crisis of the 1970s and 1980s acted as a trigger, along with growing population pressure and changes in the role of the State with regard to devolving more authority to local communities. Farmland re-greening has resulted in a wide range of impacts. It has led to more complex and more productive farming systems, improved household food security, changes in local climate, increased drought resilience, local increases in biodiversity, improved soil fertility, and a reduction in time women need for the collection of firewood. While these positive impacts do not occur everywhere, there are many positive indicators of environmental change at a vast scale. Adequate quantification of the different impacts remains an important challenge.
