World News (May 6, 2018 Edition): “This Is As Bad As It Gets”: Magma Flowing From Hawaii’s Kilauea Forces Thousands To Flee – “To His Dying Breath”: McCain Regrets Picking Palin, Wants Pence But Not Trump At Funeral

“This Is As Bad As It Gets” – Magma Flowing From Hawaii’s Kilauea Forces Thousands To Flee:

After first erupting on Thursday, Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has continued to send molten magma up through the eight fissures that have now opened up in the ground in a part of Hawaii that is home to several ritzy neighborhoods, including the tony Leilani Estates, where residents have been forced to flee as the eruptions, as well as several powerful earthquakes, have destroyed power lines and disrupted and left parts of the surrounding area without water.

One area resident summed up the neighborhood’s plight in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.

“This is as bad as it gets,” said John Bennett, 61, a resident of the Leilani Estates neighborhood forced to evacuate. “We can’t go back in yet. I feel lost. I don’t know what to think. I’ve never been in this situation before.”

The estimated 1,800 people who live in the affected area have sought temporary respite in government shelters. Others have moved in friends on other islands.

US Farmers Choke On Trade War With China

US Farmers Choke On Trade War With China:

In April we told you about how some of the “unintended consequences” of Trump’s steel tariffs, such as an Illinois farmer who put the brakes on a $71,000 grain mill, but had to hold off on the purchase because the seller raised the price 5% to account for the rising price of steel, or Iowa grain mill producer Sukup Manufacturing, which had to hike their prices for grain storage bins.

The Wall Street Journal now reports that the US-China “trade spat” is now affecting US exporters of soybeans, pork and other commodities.

Since early April, when China announced tariffs on some U.S. agricultural goods and threatened to target others, Chinese importers have canceled purchases of corn and cut orders for pork while dramatically reducing new soybean purchases, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data. Chinese importers’ new orders of sorghum, a grain used in animal feed, have dwindled while cancellations increased.

The chill in agricultural trade is sending jitters through the U.S. Farm Belt, which for years has dispatched farmers on trade missions to cultivate the Chinese market. –WSJ

As the summer persists and if nothing’s been resolved, it will start showing up as a pretty big hole in U.S. exports,” warned Soren Schroder, CEO of Bunge Ltd., one of the world’s largest soybean processors and traders.

China installs missiles on three South China Sea outposts

China installs missiles on three South China Sea outposts:

CHINA has installed anti-ship cruise missiles and surface-to-air missile systems on three of its outposts in the South China Sea, US news network CNBC reports, citing sources with direct knowledge of US intelligence reports.

The move, if confirmed, would mark the first Chinese missile deployments in the Spratly Islands, where several Asian countries including Vietnam and Taiwan have rival claims.

Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop said the Australian Government would be “concerned” if the reports were accurate.

The Minister refused to comfirm or deny any Australian intelligence about the missiles.

But she said: “If the media reports are accurate, then the Australian Government would be concerned because this would be contrary to China’s stated aspiration that it would not militarise these features.”

Stunning Photos Of China’s Haunting Bike Graveyards

Stunning Photos Of China’s Haunting Bike Graveyards:

In 2014, we exposed the world to the reality of malinvestment, ‘channel stuffing’, and the aftermath of a credit-fueled bubble in auto manufacturing with shocking images of where the world’s unsold cars go to die.

Four years later, we shift geographically from The West to The East, and exchange four wheels for two as the disgusting waste and sheer scale of China’s debt-pumped investment bubble is fully exposed – not it ghost cities (for once), but in the eerie images of what happens when the ‘sharing economy’ meets reality…

China’s ride-share graveyard is exposed as a monument to the ‘uber for bikes’ industry’s arrogance…

China Warns Trump “We Will Outlast You” As US “Significantly Escalates” Trade War

In a “significant escalation” of the trade war with China, the White House is considering restricting telecom equipment sales by some Chinese companies in the U.S., even as Chinese officials warn that “in the event of a trade war, China has a much greater ability to endure than the U.S.”

China Warns Trump “We Will Outlast You” As US “Significantly Escalates” Trade War:

Beijing sent the first messaging salvo ahead of the Steven Mnuchin-led delegation to China (which will engage in trade talks over May 3-4) overnight when the PBOC fixed the yuan sharply lower than many expected. The signal was clear: push us hard enough, and we may just launch another devaluation. Or worse.

A little while later, Beijing did its best attempt at managing expectations, when it said that it’s “unrealistic” to expect to solve all issues between the U.S. and China at a single meeting, given the economic sizes of the two countries and their complex economic and trade relationship, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying says at daily briefing.

Chinese firms use ‘mind-reading’ devices to monitor workers’ emotions

Chinese firms use ‘mind-reading’ devices to monitor workers’ emotions:

Beijing: Workers in China are being hooked up with brain-reading devices that feed information about their moods to their employers, raising fears about the privacy of people’s most basic emotions.

Electronic sensors that fit into hats and helmets are being used in China on an “unprecedented” scale to read employees’ emotions, the South China Morning Post reports, in what firms say is part of a drive to increase efficiency and productivity.

But the efforts to tap into the data is sparking concerns that companies are reading the minds of their employees, with one Chinese psychology professor warning the move could represent a “whole new level” of privacy abuse.

Although details about how the technology works are not clear, reports suggest devices use sensors and artificial intelligence algorithms to monitor brainwaves and detect spikes in emotions such as rage, anxiety and depression. They can be put in safety helmets or uniform hats and stream data to computers accessed by employers.
