China’s Class of 1977: I took an exam that changed China – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-42135342

If I didn’t come to Taiwan with my parents and my grandma in 1948, I might be one of the university exam takers in 1977.

A quantum leap by a team of scientists in Tibet, China: a first in the world.

But, can you even comprehend that China is working on a fundamental scientific project like this one?

Well, it does have practical application: quantum cryptography. It means, in plain english, unbreakable codes.

Amazing.

I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:

The end of the Anglo-American order? – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40227270

With China being the largest crude oil importer in the world, with Renminbi being accepted by central banks as a reserve currency and with Saudi Arabia and some OPEC countries don’t like what America is doing in the Middle East, is it likely that we will soon see crude oil being traded at Renminbi instead of the U.S. dollar? 

Of course I am not talking about all oil trades will be settled on Renminbi but what about bi-lateral oil trades between Saudi and China and Nigeria and China. You know which side Rusdia stands on this. 

The Renminbi bilateral swap lines between China and 33 (wiki data) other countries will be replaced with a new trading platform next year. In the past, these swaps were cleared by SWIFT which is under America’s influence. The new platform will be under China’s control and will be located in Shanghai away from SWIFT.

The world order is fast changing in front of our eyes if you care to look.

A new world order is emerging June 11, 2017

A matter of fact discussion of shifting of the balance of power in the world is clearly stated in the following article. 

The end of the Anglo-American order? – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40227270

American exceptionism is fading because Trump has been building a wall to isolate the U.S. from its former allies while digging a hole to bury the America alive. Of course, we can not forget Obama’s ‘appeasing’ foreign policy and the wars the U.S. have been and still are wagging against Muslim countries.

The American century will not be seen again and a new world order has already taken shape without Trump and the U.S.. 

Some highlights from the article are here:

MOAB did this April 27, 2017

If you only watch American media, you’ll think that Pentagon has defeated the IS in Afghanistan with one big MF MOAB on 4/13/17.

2003 test.

BBC’s reporter, Auliya Atrafi, went to the site to inspect the damage first hand and said this:

The BBCreporter also said that the MOAB did kill many IS fighters but more IS fighters who wear 6 pairs of socks (no shoes so that they can sneak up to government soldiers) come back. Maybe the U.S. needs to drop more MOAB to scare the IS fighters into submission, otherwise, Trump may want to send in more American boys and girls to fight the IS on the ground.
In any case, read or watch BBC News to get the real scoop instead of the make-naive-Americans-feel-good fake news.

Auliya Atrafi has this to say at the end of his report:
