What's Wrong With Thailand's New Constitution - Bloomberg View

What's Wrong With Thailand's New Constitution - Bloomberg View

I was in Thailand last year.
It is called 
"the land of smiling faces"
for a reason.
It is a beautiful country,
 and the nicest, most welcoming people in the world.
If you have the opportunity to go, I highly recommend it.

The Mystery of China’s Gold Stash May Soon Be Solved

The Mystery of China’s Gold Stash May Soon Be Solved — www.bloomberg.com

China’s push to challenge U.S. dominance in global trade and finance may involve gold -- a lot of gold.
While the metal is no longer used to back paper money, it remains a big chunk of central bank reserves in the U.S. and Europe. China became the world’s second-largest economy in 2010 and has stepped up efforts to make the yuan a viable competitor to the dollar. That’s led to speculation the government has stockpiled gold as part of a plan to diversify $3.7 trillion in foreign-exchange reserves.
The People’s Bank of China may have tripled holdings of bullion since it last updated them in April 2009, to 3,510 metric tons, says Bloomberg Intelligence, based on trade data, domestic output and China Gold Association figures. A stockpile that big would be second only to the 8,133.5 tons in the U.S.

25 Pictures That Epitomize Indonesia's Rubbish Problem

According to Antara News, Indonesia produces 5.4 million tons of plastic every year. Where does it all go? A lot of it goes into landfills, where it begins a 450 year decomposition process- others sit in rivers, lakes, beachfronts, sidewalks, heaps and dumps. It's a blight on what is actually a beautiful country.

These 25 photos only further reiterate that change is needed.
