    How India’s growth ended in tears

    It's enough to make a poor man cry and a wealthy investor sprint for the exit. From the back of a van in Delhi's chaotic Karol Bagh market, opposition politicians are selling discounted onions to disgruntled voters ahead of next year's general election.

    The humble red onion, heart of the vegetable curry most Indians depend on, has more than trebled in price in the last few weeks and opposition leaders hope the increase will take a large bite into the Congress-led government's remaining support.

    Peeling back its bashed, husky outer skin to its tear-jerking inner layers reveals not only the story of why its price has risen so sharply in the last month, but why the rupee has bombed in the foreign exchange markets and how India's all-action 'growth story' has become a real weepy.

    Last week, as the rupee tumbled below 63 to the US dollar and crashed through the 100 rupees to the pound barrier, onions were an unaffordable 80 rupees per kilo. The government may need to import them to increase supply and push back prices, but that option will become more expensive as rupee rates fall lower every day.

    The immediate cause of the increase was the heavy monsoon rains in Maharashtra which left the vegetables rotting in the ground, but the price may not have soared so high had the government been strong and decisive enough to reform its agricultural sector when it first planned to in 2009.

    It hoped foreign supermarkets like Tesco and Walmar...

    Fracking won’t survive, says Jane Thomas, campaigner for Friends of the Earth organization. And the US success in the field can’t be repeated due to smaller territories and lower general capacities, she told RT. RT: On one hand, hydraulic fracking [a technique in which toxic chemicals are lowered into kilometer-deep holes drilled in the ground to isolate gas and oil from shale] clearly presents some environmental problems and dangers. On the other, it might be economically profitable to actually look at this source of energy. How can you reconcile these two conflicting interests?

    Jane Thomas: I think it’s interesting what you say about economically profitable, so the first challenge we would say back at the government is, “Economically profitable for whom?” It’s quite clear in the UK context, and indeed in the European context, that the profits are more than likely to go to shareholders and to organizations like Cuadrilla. I think the basic issue for us is that you cannot replicate what’s happening in the United States with what’s happening over here. They’ve been fracking for 20 years, they’ve got drills - 2,500 drills. We’ve got 72 drills between the whole of Europe. So you cannot extract at all the sort of levels that they are being able to extract in America. RT: On the other hand, this will create a lot of jobs and the possibility to employ people.

    JT: Where you’re more likely to get more jobs is in the renewable sector, and one of the ...

  • The Hard Proof That Global Warming Is a Scam

    The Mail on Sunday today presents irrefutable evidence that official predictions of global climate warming have been catastrophically flawed. The graph on this page blows apart the ‘scientific basis’ for Britain reshaping its entire economy and spending billions in taxes and subsidies in order to cut emissions of greenhouse gases. These moves have already added £100 a year to household energy bills. Steadily climbing orange and red bands on the graph show the computer predictions of world temperatures used by the official United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The estimates – given with 75 per cent and 95 per cent certainty – suggest only a five per cent chance of the real temperature falling outside both bands. But when the latest official global temperature figures from the Met Office are placed over the predictions, they show how wrong the estimates have been, to the point of falling out of the ‘95 per cent’ band completely. The graph shows in incontrovertible detail how the speed of global warming has been massively overestimated. Yet those forecasts have had a ruinous impact on the bills we pay, from heating to car fuel to huge sums paid by councils to reduce carbon emissions. The eco-debate was, in effect, hijacked by false d...

    To die for scenic reefs in Red or the South China Sea is dying; pretty fishes and panoramic colors of soft and hard corals are now down to a complex ecology similar to tropical forest ecosystems. Compare to the microorganisms that makes the whole thing more tremendous in doing all the destruction, the predators and consumers, the producer algae and the tiny invertebrates mean nothing. Catalina Reyes of CoECRS. (Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies) and the University of Queensland has published her work alongside 4 colleagues, on the bacteria, fungi and algae that live in this most complex marine ecosystem. The change in this ecosystem recently is because of our overproduction. Oceans now are Cola like, the CO2 we made over the last century or two has made the sea water to feel like one.

    With sophisticated cyber attacks on the rise, firms are increasingly having to decide whether to take aggressive self-defense measures in a legal environment that is both complex and uncertain, attorneys and consultants told BNA.

    At issue are “active defense” tactics that may involve such steps as “hacking back” to locate stolen computer files and, in extreme cases, attempting to take down the network of an identified attacker.

    “Until recently, there has not been much discussion about self-defense in cyber space,” Peter McLaughlin, Of Counsel at Morrison & Foerster LLP and co-chair of the American Bar Association's Information Security Committee, said in a BNA interview. “It's a very gray area in which companies must tread very carefully.”

    The issue has become a hot topic within legal and computer security circles, McLaughlin said, adding that the ABA is very interested in providing “thought leadership” in this area.

    “This is basically the wild, wild West of the cyber frontier.” David Bodenheimer, partner, Crowell & Moring LLP The federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), which prohibits unauthorized access to a computer system, is seen as the primary U.S. statute governing how far companies may go in defending their computer networks. A violator could potentially face federal prosecution or litigation from an aggrieved party. Experts say this can apply both to attackers and to victims ...

    jakarta capital environmental blog, crown eco management , As we all know earthquake is a catastrophic natural disaster. Most earthquake-related deaths are caused by the collapse of structures and the construction practices play a tremendous role in the death toll of an earthquake. In southern Italy in 1909 more than 100,000 people perished in an earthquake that struck the region. Almost half of the people living in the region of Messina were killed due to the easily collapsible structures that dominated the villages of the region. Though there are some ways to prevent this from happening, it can never be considered as risk avoidance. A larger earthquake that struck San Francisco three years earlier had killed fewer people (about 700) because building construction practices were different type (predominantly wood). Survival rates in the San Francisco earthquake was about 98%, that in the Messina earthquake was between 33% and 45%) (Zebrowski, 1997). Even a moderate rupture beneath a city with structures unprepared for shaking can produce tens of thousands of casualties. Due to this fact, Crown Eco Management determined that safety measures for this could not be compared to fraud prevention. Although probably the most important that we should know, direct shaking effects are not the only hazard asso...

    In these days of social media and instant messaging, the importance of customer satisfaction can hardly be overstated. Just one accident is enough for customers to start a national or global boycott. But keep them satisfied and that “thumbs up” is worth its weight in platinum. From a marketing perspective, there is nothing more valuable than a satisfied customer.

    We all know that it is easier, cheaper and wiser to keep our customers rather than win new customers and lose them. It is human nature to build relationships: with people, communities, clubs… and brands. If the owners of the brands build those customer-relationships with respect, care and attention, they stand to gain. Against the socio-economic backdrop of Indonesia’s growing consumer economy, these awards aren’t a day too early.

    To celebrate Indonesia’s best, Roy Morgan Research held its inaugural Customer Satisfaction Awards night last Thursday at the Financial Hall of Graha CIMB Niaga in downtown Jakarta. A total of 30 awards were given away, over a 3-course dinner. The support for this new award was overwhelming, a sign of the importance given to customer satisfaction by many of Indonesia’s biggest and best companies. Picking up the first award of the night was Emirsyah Satar, the head of Garuda Indonesia who were the clear winner in the “Domestic Airline of the Year” category. They had the unique distinction of picking up the best “International Airline” aw...

  • The superpower competition for power and influence between the United States and China will likely profoundly impact Asian politics and security in the 21st century. Already, while Chinese economic and military might are on the rise, emboldening its policymaking on issues like the South China Sea, the US has taken countermeasures to protect its regional interests. Washington has put into motion its so-called “pivot to Asia,” which has enhanced America’s economic, military and diplomatic investment to the region.

    This is the regional environment that Indonesia is situated in nowadays and likely for the foreseeable future. Caught in the middle of this superpower competition, however, doesn’t mean that Indonesia is in a hopeless or unpredictable situation. It has a number of strategic options at its disposal.

    This reality, let’s call it strategic flexibility, is the result of two things. First, over the last two decades, Jakarta has fairly consistently pursued a foreign policy of “friends with no enemies.” And second, Indonesia’s history isn’t marred by heated regional rivalries and enmity. As a result, Indonesia hasn’t strategically backed itself into a corner, limiting its options and choices. More to the point, it doesn’t have the foreign policy obstacles that countries like Japan and South Korea currently face.

    Instead, at this point, Indonesia has relative freedom to make and implement the foreign policies it wants. In this sense, Indonesia’s com...
