The New Great Game Between China and the US – commentary

The New Great Game Between China and the US

The U.S. is transfixed by its multibillion-dollar electoral circus. The European Union is paralyzed by austerity, fear of refugees, and now all-out jihad in the streets of Paris. So the West might be excused if it’s barely caught the echoes of a Chinese version of Roy Orbison’s “All I Have to Do Is Dream.” And that new Chinese dream even comes with a road map.   Continue reading

Britain and India – Marriage à-la-Modi – commentary

Britain and India – Marriage à-la-Modi

A close relationship gets cosier, but the visiting leader’s real audience is back home

IT SHOULD be a welcome like no other. On November 13th India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, is due to get the rock-star treatment at Wembley stadium in London when about 55,000 people turn out to hear him speak.
The organisers claim that this will not only be the biggest overseas reception so far for the jet-setting premier, topping even last year’s appearance at Madison Square Garden in New York, but also Britain’s largest-ever welcome for a visiting leader (minus popes). The warm embrace is not surprising: of the 1.5m or so people of Indian origin in Britain, almost half are Gujarati, hailing from Mr Modi’s home state.

Jarabacoa in La Vega province in the DR.

By David Jessop

News Americas, LONDON, England, Fri. Nov. 6, 2015: One of my abiding memories of travelling in the Dominican Republic is of staying in a remote and beautiful mountainous area above Jarabacoa in La Vega province.

For those who have never had the good fortune to visit the country’s central range of mountains, these are largely lush and tropical, but their high elevation — 525m and more above sea level — means that they have warm days and cool nights for most of the year.

What made this special for me was that I, a visitor, stayed in a house owned by friends that was located in and above a rural community. It was magical.     Continue reading
