Steve Jobs’ firm now faces stiff competition in the tablet market, with rivals RIM and Samsung both having released credible alternatives in recent months. Jobs attempted to pour cold water on the iPad’s rivals, claiming their smaller size meant they fell short of both a smartphone’s convenience and an iPad’s functionality. But Apple’s stock still tumbled more than six per cent in after hours trading on news of the iPad’s disappointing sales.However, sales of its new iPhone 4 helped push the firm’s quarterly revenue up 67 per cent to $20.3bn (£13bn), ahead of Wall Street’s target of $18.9bn. And it reported profits of $4.31bn, up from $2.53bn a year ago. Both figures are a record for the fourth quarter.The firm shifted 14.1m iPhones in the period, and the Cupertino-based firm is now activating 275,000 iPhones every day. This compares to 200,000 phones a day being activated using Google’s rival Android software, according to the search giant’s latest figures. The battle is key to both firms’ plans to control the way we view the mobile internet, one of the fastest growing and most lucrative technology markets.Apple sold 9m iPods, boosted by a completely redesigned range of products, as well as 3.9m of its high-margin Mac laptop and desktop computers.It has now reported record revenues and profits for every quarter since 2007, before the onset of the recession – a remarkable feat for a firm specialising in high-end products. The latest revenue figures are an astonishing five times higher than the equivalent figure in 2005, with earnings rising 10 times in the same period.Apple now expects its first quarter revenue – traditionally its strongest – to hit $23bn as customers rush to buy its products in time for Christmas.Meanwhile, IBM reported a higher-than-expected profit and raised its outlook for the year. Its quarterly profit rose to $3.6bn on revenue of $24.3bn. It was buoyed by strong sales in its core hardware business but was hit by sluggish trading in technology services. whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The Lloyds share price looks like an unmissable bargain. Here’s what I’d do

first_img See all posts by Harvey Jones The Lloyds share price looks like a bargain buy today at less than 30p. Should you grab this chance to buy its stock at a dirt cheap price?Shares in Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) have dropped by half during the Covid-19 crisis. But this is not just a one-off fall. The Lloyds share price is down more than 95% since topping 680p just before the 2008 financial crisis.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Despite this, it remains one of the most traded names on the FTSE 100, and I personally tipped it before coronavirus struck, at around 57p. Long-term bargain buy?At the time, it traded at around eight times earnings, with a price-to-book value of just 0.5 and a juicy prospective yield of 5% or 6% a year. The Lloyds share price looked like a bargain buy to me then. But it is harder to judge today, as the pandemic destroys traditional valuation methods.Investors in Lloyds had grown used to its disappointing share price performance, their consolation was the promise of dividends galore as it steadily restored payouts. That dream has gone for now, after the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) instructed banks to halt dividends and share buybacks, to increase lending capacity to help businesses and individuals survive the crisis.This was a particular blow to Lloyds customers, as the bank had pledged to increase the frequency of its dividends to once a quarter from June.The Lloyds share price is under siegeWe should be grateful for the 2008 financial crisis in one respect. The regulators forced stricken banks to create substantial capital and liquidity buffers, and the PRA has urged them to dig into these, to support the economy while maintaining their own safety.Banks have come in for criticism for playing it too safe, and failing to channel desperately needed funds via the coronavirus business interruption loan scheme. While in many countries, the government 100% backs emergency loans, in the UK, banks must cover 20%, which is understandably making them wary.Despite all the uncertainty, the opportunity to buy Lloyds below 30p looks difficult to resist. Aren’t we always saying that investors should seize moments like these?You will need nerves of steel, though. The longer the lockdown lasts, the harder the recovery will be, as more businesses fold and millions lose their jobs. Debt impairments will surely rise, while near-zero interest rates will squeeze net lending margins. The UK housing market is in lockdown, and Lloyds is exposed, as the group has 20% of the mortgage market.Investors are wary. While the FTSE 100 has rebounded by 25% in the last fortnight, Lloyds stock has hardly budged. You would have to be a particularly brave, contrarian investor to buy its stock today. On the other hand, 30p is undeniably cheap. If you plan to hold for at least 10 years, the Lloyds share price could one day prove a bargain buy.

RIP: The Rev. Rebecca Willoughby Dinan

Rebecca Lynn Willoughby (Becky) Dinan, an Episcopal priest known for her creative preaching, teaching and spiritual guidance, died of cancer at her home in Northport, Maine on April 11, 2013. She was 70. She was preceded in death by her husband of nearly 40 years, Joseph Dinan.Becky was born in Appalachia, Virginia in 1942. She was stricken with polio at the age of four, which left her with an impaired left leg, but her response to this challenge revealed the courageous spirit and determination that characterized her life . Growing up in rural Virginia in a loving family, Becky developed as a writer and teacher. She pursued her studies at Radford University, earning a bachelor’s degree in English in 1963. Called to the ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church, she began her preparation at the Ecumenical Institute of St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore. Graduating from Virginia Theological Seminary in 1980, she was ordained deacon and priest by the Rt. Rev. David K. Leighton, Diocese of Maryland.Becky served the church as a chaplain at Goucher College, the Johns Hopkins University Hospital and as an assistant priest at Trinity Church, Towson, MD and Grace Episcopal Church, Elkridge, MD. In addition, Becky served as an adjunct professor of preaching at Virginia Theological Seminary. Several of her sermons are etched in the memories of the students and colleagues who experienced them. In one, she came into the sanctuary dressed as a cleaning lady. It was Maundy Thursday, the traditional day for the washing of the feet. Becky started her sermon loudly proclaiming “I don’t wash nobodies feet”, as she kicked the pail and mop she had with her. She had everyone’s attention. After moving to Maine, Becky continued her ministry of spiritual companionship.During her years in Maine post-polio syndrome limited her physical activities and caused her much physical anguish. She met this late-life challenge as she had the earlier challenges in her life – with courage and defiance. She departed this life unbroken, ready for, as she told her brother Ron, “my next mission.”Remembering Becky, the Rev. Kingsley Smith commented to the Alumni Office of Virginia Seminary: “She was a women of sensitivity, cheerfulness, compassion and courage, never allowing the polio which afflicted her from childhood to limit her. I was her mentor, and then she became mine.” A close colleague and friend, Nicki Ridenour of Towson, remembers “the depth of her faith and her obedience to her Lord, her support, her willingness to speak her mind and her wonderful laugh and sense of humor. She will be missed!”In addition to her husband Joe, Becky was predeceased by her father, Harry Willoughby and her sister-in-law Judy Willoughby. She is survived by her mother Ruth Willoughby of Suffolk, VA, her brother Ron Willoughby of Riner, VA, her niece Kathy Willoughby of West Palm Beach, FL, her nephew Rick Willoughby and his wife Beth of Floyd, VA, her grand-niece Wesley Slack of West Palm Beach, FL, and special friend and caregiver Bonnie Young of Swanville, ME.The Rt. Rev. Ted Gulick will preside at a memorial service at The Church of St. Clement in Alexandria, VA on May 17. There will be a private memorial service for Becky at her home in Maine, and the family will scatter Becky’s and Joe’s ashes in the field behind their home.

The Albany congregation is known for supporting the LGBTQ community and has advocated for use of same-sex marriage rites.Bishop William Love has led the Diocese of Albany for nearly 12 years. Photo: Diocese of AlbanyLove called homosexuality “sinful and forbidden” in a pastoral letter that outlined his decision to block the use of those rites in the diocese. The decision makes him the only Episcopal bishop to reject the compromise that is scheduled to take effect Dec. 2, the first Sunday of Advent, under General Convention’s Resolution B012.After meeting with diocesan clergy on Nov. 10, Love asked them to read the letter to their congregations the next day, after Sunday worship services. At St. Andrew’s, that task fell to the Rev. Mary White, rector, and afterward, “there were people in tears,” Lawson said.White did not respond to a request for an interview but said in an email that her congregation “felt anger and frustration” at the letter. “The contents of Bishop Love’s pastoral directive were not unexpected, although we had been hopeful he would find a way, as did the other conservative bishops, to implement B012 in the Diocese of Albany,” White said.Other congregations were pleased by Love’s decision. Church of the Good Shepherd in Canajoharie was one.“I thought the letter was bathed in love and God’s holy word,” said the Rev. Virginia Ogden, who has been rector at Good Shepherd for seven years. “It was very compassionate, and it was very factual as to what almighty God says in his Bible.”Even so, Ogden said, the diocese faces “a thousand scenarios” for what will happen now that its bishop is openly defying a General Convention mandate. She chose not to speculate on the future.“It’s in God’s hands,” she said. “Sometimes the lord gives us just enough light on the path to see the back of his sandals.”Presiding Bishop Michael Curry didn’t speculate either in a statement released Nov. 12, though he affirmed General Convention’s authority and said he and other church leaders are “assessing the implications of the statement and will make determinations about appropriate actions soon.”A challenge to Love’s directive could lead to disciplinary action under Title IV of the church’s canons, and at least one priest, the Rev. Glen Michaels, has suggested he would fight Love on the issue.“For better or worse, I see myself as a good person to challenge this,” Michaels told the Living Church. He serves as priest-in-charge at a summer chapel in the Adirondacks but works as a New York assistant attorney general, so challenging Love would not threaten his livelihood. He described Love’s directive as “not enforceable.”If Love is forced to allow same-sex marriage ceremonies, the bishop warned in his letter that many Episcopalians in his diocese will leave the church, mirroring the “blood bath and opening of the flood gates that have ravaged other dioceses.”Love, 61, gave no indication that he would try to split the diocese from the Episcopal Church, as some bishops have in past theological disputes over issues of sexuality, but he clearly is aligning himself with the more conservative provinces and dioceses of the Anglican Communion, said Louis Bannister, a lay leader at Cathedral of All Saints in Albany.“I’m surprised that he’s the one holdout of the dissenting bishops,” Bannister, 42, told ENS. “It does surprise me, except that I also know him well enough that he wants to be a martyr for his cause.”Bannister, who is gay and a lifelong Episcopalian, said he is proud of the Episcopal Church’s efforts in recent years to include LGBTQ members more fully in the life of the church. The church has “come out on the correct side,” he said, and he sees Love as a troubling exception.“His assertion that God has removed his blessing from the Episcopal Church because of the church’s stance on this issue, I find that assertion to be repugnant and honestly not at all of God,” Bannister said.A decade of rapid progress toward marriage equalityThe church’s rapid progress in embracing marriage equality in recent years was far from guaranteed when Love took the reins of the Diocese of Albany in February 2007. Less than four years earlier, the 2003 ordination of New Hampshire Bishop Gene Robinson as the church’s first openly gay bishop sparked upheaval in some dioceses and congregations.But the march toward equality accelerated. In 2009, General Convention passed several resolutions seeking to make the church more welcoming to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, including by affirming that those Episcopalians may serve as ordained ministers of the church. A separate resolution was approved to begin developing liturgies for blessing same-sex unions.Those liturgies were approved for use by General Convention in 2012, and a follow-up resolution was passed that year to create a Task Force on the Study of Marriage, which studied the pastoral needs of priests interested in officiating at weddings of same-sex couples in states where such unions were authorized.Then in June 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex civil marriage was legal in all 50 states. General Convention had just begun in Salt Lake City, Utah, and the bishops and deputies proceeded to approve the trial use of rites for same-sex marriage ceremonies that had been drafted by the Task Force on the Study of Marriage.Those rites, however, were not universally welcomed. Three years later, as Episcopalians prepared to gather in Austin, Texas, for the 79th General Convention, the conservative bishops of eight domestic dioceses – Albany, Central Florida, Dallas, Florida, North Dakota, Springfield, Tennessee and the Virgin Islands – continued to block same-sex couples from marrying in their churches.Deputies, bishops and visitors packed a meeting room in the Austin Hilton Hotel the afternoon of July 5 to testify on three marriage-related resolutions at the 79th General Convention. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceResolution B012 was a compromise intended to settle the matter for good. It didn’t advance as far as advocates preferred toward including the rites in the Book of Common Prayer, but it established that the rites should be available to all couples and emphasizing that clergy have the authority to use them.Seven of the eight holdout bishops said they would implement the resolution, with some of them interpreting provisions of the resolution as allowing them to delegate pastoral oversight for same-sex marriages to fellow bishops. Such arrangements may resemble the model in the church known as Delegated Episcopal Pastoral Oversight, or DEPO, though a reference to that model was specifically excluded from the language of the approved version of B012.After its approval, Love initially said little.In September, Love held a meeting with diocesan clergy members to discuss B012. The Diocese of Albany is based in New York’s capital city and includes more than 100 congregations, most of them are based in less-populated communities from the Canadian border to the northern Catskill Mountains. It is known as a more conservative diocese than the Episcopal Church as a whole, and many of its priests and deacons are supportive of Love’s stance on same-sex marriage.“I’m sympathetic to the bishop,” the Rev. Matthew Stromberg told ENS, but at the meeting with clergy, he advised Love to accept B012 and move on. “My own feeling was that he should follow the example of the other conservative bishops who’ve decided to try to live with this, if only because I think so many of us are just tired of thinking about it. And I’m afraid of what the consequences are going to be for our diocese.”Stromberg, 36, serves as rector at St. George’s Episcopal Church in Schenectady, with an average Sunday attendance of about 65. He believes Love is doing what he thinks is right, not out of hatred for the gay community, but “I know it’s hurtful to a lot of folks within our parish and around the diocese.”Diocese of Albany Bishop William Love celebrates Eucharist at St. George’s Episcopal Church in Schenectady, New York, in November 2015. Photo: St. George’sTensions between Love and some of the diocese’s more progressive parishes date back years. At least three parishes requested and received DEPO relationships with neighboring dioceses, all in 2012: St. Andrew’s continues to receive pastoral oversight from the Diocese of Central New York, and the Diocese of Vermont provides pastoral oversight for St. John’s Episcopal Church in Essex and Church of St. Luke, the Beloved Physician, in Saranac Lake. Although granted DEPO, those three churches remain part of the Diocese of Albany under Love’s authority.Lawson, 51, joined St. Andrew’s shortly after the parish requested DEPO. As a lesbian and single mother to her son, Jason, she appreciates her congregation’s advocacy for LGBTQ inclusion and marriage equality.“I was looking for a place where our family in its uniqueness would feel affirmed, and it was,” Lawson told ENS.She was serving as senior warden in 2015 when the congregation approved and sent a letter to Love asking him to allow same-sex couples to marry at St. Andrew’s using General Convention’s newly approved trial-use rites. The parish’s letter, foreshadowing General Convention’s B012 compromise three years later, argued that DEPO would allow Bishop Skip Adams, who was head of the Diocese of Central New York at the time, to handle pastoral oversight of those marriages instead of Love.Love refused, Lawson said.“St. Andrew’s has been trying to find ways to be in unity with the diocese for a long time,” Lawson said.The congregation’s DEPO relationship with the Diocese of Central New York has continued under Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe, who issued her own statement Nov. 12 in response to the impasse in Albany.“I recognize this is a challenging time and that some may have found the recent statement of Bishop Love of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany to be injurious. I want to be clear that God loves you and has created you as a blessing in our world,” Duncan-Probe said. “Each of us is called to be our authentic self, for only then can we truly be the beloved community God intends. I affirm marriage equality and stand as an ally for social justice for all persons.”Love’s obstruction has dismayed several same-sex couples who would have gotten married at St. Andrew’s, Lawson said. Some have gotten civil marriages outside the church. Others have left the church in frustration. She knows at least one gay couple at St. Andrew’s who still want to get married in the church.“Being able to have their marriage blessed by a priest is important to them, and it can’t happen here,” she said.Members of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Albany, New York, pose for a Facebook photo promoting it as a congregation that “welcomes ALL for worship, fellowship and service.”‘Deck is stacked’ against same-sex marriage in AlbanyBannister moved to Albany about 10 years ago from Vermont and was shocked by how conservative his new diocese was by comparison.When he was searching for a congregation, a helpful woman at one church warned him that his homosexuality might not be fully welcomed at some congregations, so she guided him to others that would be a better fit. He ended up at Cathedral of All Saints.“The cathedral congregation is absolutely wonderful,” he said. “It would not have it become my spiritual home were it not a wonderful congregation.”After General Convention passed the trial-use liturgies in 2015, Bannister formed a closed Facebook group called Voices in the Diocese of Albany to “harness the energy” on the issue. The group organized a strategy session, which the bishop caught wind of and attended, unannounced, with members of his staff.The bishop spoke with the group for three hours, Bannister said, and both sides expressed the feeling that it had been a positive and honest conversation. Then a week later, Love issued a letter saying he would not allow the trial-use rites for same-sex marriages in the Diocese of Albany.“We were all sort of blindsided,” Bannister said, “because we thought we were all just paid lip service.”This year, after Love met in September with diocesan clergy to get their views on B012, the topic came up at a meeting of the cathedral chapter, of which Bannister is a member. Bannister recalls the Very Rev. Leander Harding, the cathedral’s dean, telling the chapter that Love’s position on same-sex marriage was backed by a majority of priests and deacons.“That may be true,” Bannister told Harding. “The clergy deck is stacked in this diocese, and [Love] has never asked the laity how they feel.”Love first revealed his final decision on B012 at another meeting of diocesan clergy, a retreat last week at the Christ the King Spiritual Life Center in Greenwich, New York.  The retreat ran Nov. 7-10, and on the final morning, Saturday, he gathered everyone together for his announcement.“I got to tell you, he got a standing ovation from his clergy, probably over 100 people in the room,” Ogden, 69, told ENS. Some of the more progressive clergy members simply didn’t come to hear Love speak, she said, and others walked out in protest when he announced his decision.At her church, services are typically small, about 20 people. Good Shepherd is an aging congregation – “I tease that my youth group starts at age 45” – and same-sex marriage isn’t a big issue for parishioners there. Love’s decision, though, was received warmly when she read his letter to them.“I don’t think they were surprised at all. We know him, and we stand with him,” she said. “We stand with Jesus.”Stromberg was ordained by Love and personally thinks highly of the bishop and of his faith. He described his congregation at St. George’s as traditional and Anglo-Catholic. Services almost exclusively follow Rite I. A Rite II service was offered once, and few people attended.Though liturgically traditional, Stromberg’s parishioners are more socially progressive.“I’d say nearly everyone here at St. George’s was pretty disappointed by the bishop’s decision to not comply with the resolution,” he said. “I was hoping there would be some way of moving on, but I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The house, nestled in an acre of grid planted mango trees, was to serve as a secluded retirement home for a couple, away from the chaotic city life. None of the existing twenty year old mango trees were removed. Instead, the house weaves itself around these trees, creating a multitude of experiences.Save this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographySave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographyThe peripheral walls of the house are made up of local wire cut bricks, with interjecting layers of exposed cement lintels. This is a conscious attempt to blur the insides and outsides even further. The perforations are controlled depending on the space it divides or encompasses. When lit by the sun, they transfer ever changing shadows to the inside and when back lit, they offer a playful hint of what is happening behind them. This jaali wall’s presence is felt from all the areas of the house. There is no façade to the building from the outside. The brick layer is the only hint of the house, seen as a backdrop behind the trees, and vice-versa.Save this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographySave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographyThe Brahmasthala (heart of the house), is an open to sky courtyard. All sides are enveloped by the brick façade, from which glass projection boxes protrude around the existing trees. One is constantly aware of the large, looming mango trees through sound of them swaying in the wind, or the large perforated shadows that they cast. The traditional granite south Indian temple statues and the sound of water from the temple spouts of Mahabalipuram fill the central courtyard with a sense of spiritual serenity. The north pergolas cast long, transitioning shadows on the stone-clad walls and a large pool below it.Save this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographyThe house is made up of two wings, connected by a double height space. The entry door leads to the east wing, which has a drawing room, beside a water court housing a mango tree. The puja corridor leads to a pebble court, also accommodating an existing tree. A shaded wooden deck with a swing is opposite this. The other west wing houses two bedrooms and a study in between. These are accessed through a long corridor, which is made into a gallery of paintings and sculptures on pedestals. The morning eastern sun casts varying shadows on this wall through the perforated, brick façade. The whole wall receiving this light is finished with yellow stucco lime plaster and brass knobs fit on a grid.Save this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographyThe two bedrooms on the top are accessed through the stairs in the central, double height area. A brass and brick accent wall encloses the staircase. A bridge connecting the two also accommodates a bar area and sitout. Throughout the length of the bridge, is a planter with light raining from on above. A long window cuts above the south wall, which offers a view of the lake from afar while walking over the bridge. Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographyThe ceilings are exposed concrete. The flooring is primarily Italian marble, with pockets of handmade cement tiles laid in a pattern. Accent walls of different areas are finished with different shades of lime plaster. Teak wood, brass accents and glass make up the rest of the material palette.Save this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Cloudscape of Haikou / MAD ArchitectsSelected ProjectsPardis Khaneh Apartments Building / Keivani ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Projects ArchDaily Lead Architects: CopyAbout this officeSpacefiction StudioOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsHyderabadOn FacebookIndiaPublished on April 28, 2021Cite: “Brick Mask House / Spacefiction Studio” 27 Apr 2021.

Demonizing China

first_imgThe new U.S. administration’s foreign policy appointees have quickly bared their teeth to People’s China. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s first remarks clarified that U.S.-China relations are both important and adversarial. That’s diplomat-speak meaning that U.S. imperialism is hostile to China, and Chinese successes have the U.S. ruling class terrified. Joe Biden’s regime plans to give no space to China on the seas or in the financial markets. It will resume the “pivot to Asia,” started under Barack Obama’s administration, and try to pretend the last four years were a strange aberration instead of a symptom of U.S. imperialist decline.While the twice-impeached former president and assorted Republican hacks have called Biden “soft on China,” even right-wing Fox News disagrees. Fox’s military analyst, retired Gen. Jack Keane, said Jan. 20 that a bipartisan anti-China policy prevails: “The fact is that the people around President Biden pretty much agree with Trump’s redefinition of the global security challenges that we’re facing.” After Blinken’s wink, the corporate media opened up a propaganda blitz against China as January ended. Media from the New York Times to NPR to Fox News pilloried China for (1) “authoritarian” handling of the COVID-19 crisis, (2)  alleged repression of internal minority populations and (3) its possessive attitude toward Hong Kong and Taiwan.We point out that the last two territories had been part of China for millennia, before imperialist wars and maneuvers snatched them away. Times opinion columnist Nicolas Kristof’s Jan. 30 piece epitomized the media blitz. Kristof has an undeserved reputation as a “progressive,” because he writes of violations of human rights and especially of women’s rights. The twist is that he often uses the sympathy created by his description to argue for U.S. military intervention — such as the 2011 U.S.-NATO overthrow of the Libyan government and the continued U.S. military occupation of Afghanistan — allegedly to protect women’s rights against the Taliban. Kristof omits the fact that from 1979-91, Washington armed every reactionary and misogynist Afghan counterrevolutionary — including those who murdered women school teachers under the then pro-socialist Afghan government and its Soviet allies. Kristof’s Jan. 30 column continued his pro-imperialist bent. He had the nerve to call China’s leader Xi Jinping “an overconfident, risk-taking bully who believes that the United States is in decline,” and he insisted that “Biden needs to manage Xi and reduce the risk of war without pulling his punches.” He urged U.S. strategists to take advantage of alleged differences within the Chinese Communist Party’s leadership.Kristof got one thing right: U.S. imperialism is in decline. And the one area where the U.S. is still number one is the production of overconfident, risk-taking bullies, as the last president and the recent attack on the Capitol demonstrated. That attack showed the world which ruling class and its political representatives have the sharpest and most irrational differences.The corporate media may have confidence that Biden’s appointees will carry out a coherent anti-China strategy. Workers World expects an aggressive and dangerous policy from Biden. We call on the U.S. population to confront the lies of the U.S. ruling class, its politicians and its media, and to mobilize to prevent any aggressive moves by U.S. imperialism against People’s China.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Two newspaper employees hurt by parcel bomb explosion

first_img Hong Kong: RSF appeals to the UN to act for the release of Apple Daily founder Jimmy Lai Hong KongAsia – Pacific to go further Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK): Patrick Li, Director of Broadcasting or political commissar? News Condemning the parcel bomb explosion that yesterday injured two employees of the Hong Kong-based newspaper Ming Pao, Reporters Without Borders today urged the authorities not to rule out any possible motives in their investigation. The parcel bomb, addressed to the Chinese-language daily’s editor, Cheung Kin-Bor, is the first of its kind in Hong Kong.“It is very worrying that such methods worthy of crime organisations or terrorist groups are now being used against the Hong Kong press,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is up to the government to restore confidence by arresting those responsible, while the press must protest against this attempt to intimidate it.”Gift-wrapped and accompanied by flowers, the package contained a battery and a few grammes of explosive. It went off at 2 p.m. yesterday when opened by a secretary, Cheung Kin-Bor, 45, who sustained facial injuries. She is hospitalised and in a stable condition. Another employee suffered smoke inhalation.An anonymous letter inside the package referred to the “good news” published by the newspaper in mid-October and demanded the transfer of 3 million euros to the bank account of a Hong Kong charity. It also asked the newspaper to post a receipt on its website within three days to show it had made the transfer.“Do not ignore this, it is not a joke,” the letter said. “And unworthy as you are, you should not forget that you are responsible for the safety of your staff (…) The next time, the punishment will be harsher.”Cheung said he did not know why Ming Pao was the target of this kind of blackmail. He said he stood by his newspaper and stressed his commitment to press freedom.The Hong Kong government has condemned the attack. Chief executive Donald Tsang has undertaken to ensure that those responsible are arrested.
