Re: The Trump Administration

The graphs in the article you link do not communicate the assertion you made. The graph in this article seems a bit more to-the-point, at least in respect to China's (and Japan's) holdings. https://www.ft.com/content/cbde535e-f3db-11e6-8758-6876151821a6 If I recall correctly, Russia's holdings are m...

Don't think so.
Where did you get that?

Re: 11:36 pm

However, the real national crisis, if a mega quake off that coast occurred, destroying a good part of Valpo, might very well shut-down most shipping in to the country, for a very long time. Those ports are the most important source of imports to the entire country, and the costs to throttle up othe...

Re: Randomly picked by computer, United Airlines kicks out passenger

I wonder where the guy ended-up. Based upon how prolific his photo has been, with a very arrogant, aggressive look, he probably won't be able to get a customer-facing job for a very, very long time . . . if ever. Perhaps he will get a job in a call centre sometime, where his face can not be seen. [...

Re: Printing bureau in Santiago

I suggest you state precisely where you live in Santiago.
I knew cheap places in Ñuñoa, but they might not be near where you live.

True. But the Chinese have also used North Korea as a "bargaining chip" and a tool for for "blackmailing" the west, especially the US.

Re: Randomly picked by computer, United Airlines kicks out passenger

' tried to turn something which is a civil matter, a civil dispute into a criminal dispute.' I have the impression that it is something that happens rather often. Wake up dude! Many, many laws are exactly that. Copyright and patent laws are a good example. Many, many companies and industries encour...

Re: The Trump Administration

Question: Why would the Chinese move troops to the border? Many people probably assume it is to aid the North Koreans against any invasion by South Korea, the US, etc. It is possible it might also be for + occupying North Korea for their own purposes, or + solely to prevent mass emigration of North ...

Re: Chile introduces tech visa

I wouldn't say that Start-Up Chile is quite the failure that it's being made out to be by the posters on this thread. "Start-Up Chile was launched in 2010 as an initiative of the Chilean Government to change the nation’s culture towards entrepreneurship and to position Chile as the hub of inno...

Re: The Trump Administration

Pumpkinhead has created a dysfunctioal dynamic in his inner circle of advisors. He's got Bannon and the Breitbart crowd on one side, and Kushner and Ivanka and the banksters on the other. Naturally they give the boss conflicting opinions, and since he's not a man who is well known for strong convic...
