    China has developed an anti-drone laser technology that can apparently shoot down a low flying drone within a two kilometer radius. The official Xinhua news agency reports that the technology has been co-developed by the ChinaAcademy of Engineering Physics, with the claim being that small-scale drones can be shot down within five seconds of the system locking on. It said the reason for using laser as an anti-drone tech is to increase the accuracy with which drones can be blasted out of the sky— vs other less precision methods such as using a sniper or intercepting by helicopter. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Techcrunch/~3/z48mFOcXdXs/ http://www.wochit.com

They are China's vast number of petitioners. They turn to petitioning offices around the country when local courts or officials either cannot or choose not to address their plights. Their complaints range from labor disputes to environmental damage to forced home evictions. When local offices fail, they turn to Beijing. On Thursday, Chinese state-run Xinhua News Agency said since 2005, petitioner numbers have fallen for seven years straight. It says this signals the petitioning system is improving, and the public's rights are being protected. But not everyone agrees, especially petitioners thems...

Every year, tens of thousands of Chinese people travel from around the country to Beijing. But it's not for fun. They're there to air their grievances; hoping central authorities can help them. They are China's vast number of petitioners. They turn to petitioning offices around the country when local courts or officials either cannot or choose not to address their plights. Their complaints range from labor disputes to environmental damage to forced home evictions. When local offices fail, they turn to Beijing. On Thursday, Chinese state-run Xinhua News Agency said since 2005, petitioner numbers have fallen for seven years straight. It says this signals the petitioning system is improving, and the public's rights are being protected. But not everyone agrees, especially petitioners themselves. [Yi Dengzhen, Petitioner from Hubei Province] "It's wrong, wrong. There are more and more petitioners. The old issues don't get resolved. New issues come up, and there are actually more petitioners now." Keeping the number of petitions down is a major focus for China's communist authorities. Chinese leaders see them as a source of instability, and local governments are either punished or rewarded depending on how they keep a lid on petitioners. Petitioners frequently report being illegally detained and abused by authorities. Local governments are known to set up checkpoints around Beijing, and intercept individuals from their jurisdiction before they make it to the capital. A petitioner from northern Heilongjiang province says the detentions spike during politically sensitive dates. [Ru Jicheng, Petitioner from Heilongjiang Province] "This year's 18th Party Congress is much stricter than during the Beijing Olympics. Local authorities try to hold on to their positions, and will do anything to arrest us. The police even told us if they do anything, the government will back them up." The Chinese regime is currently preparing for its 18th Party Congress, to be held on November 8th. Xinhua's report followed a call by China's Ministry of Justice to, quote "comprehensively investigate petitioning issues to welcome the 18th Party Congress".

More of convoy crossing bridge STORYLINE: Food, tents and other emergency aid from China has arrived in North Korea after a devastating train explosion which killed more than 160 people - nearly half of them children in a school torn apart by the blast - and left thousands homeless. Aid workers who were the first outsiders to reach the disaster site in the secretive communist country this weekend recounted seeing huge craters, twisted rail tracks and scorched buildings following Thursday''s massive explosion in Ryongchon, near the Chinese border. But the 1,300 people that North Korean officials said were injured in the catastrophe, along with the bodies of the dead, had been evacuated before the aid workers arrived in the nearby city of Sinuiju. By Sunday, the Red Cross said the official death toll had risen to 161 up from the 154 reported earlier. John Sparrow, a Red Cross spokesman in Beijing, confirmed the new death toll but did not say whether it reflected new deaths or confirmed casualties. He said earlier that 76 of the dead were children from a school that had been destroyed in the explosion. North Korea blamed the disaster on human error, saying a train cargo of oil and chemicals ignited when workers knocked the wagons against power lines. The statement was unusually frank for North Korea, which is believed to have covered up past disasters and tightly controls the flow of information to its people and the outside world. Thousands of Ryongchon residents were left homeless by the disaster. North Korean state television announced on Sunday that Chinese supplies were on the way to Ryongchon, indicating that the totalitarian government had notified its population of the catastrophe. China said later on Sunday that the initial batch of aid had arrived, with the official Chinese news agency Xinhua saying that 2,000 carpets, 300 tents, food items and other relief materials had been shipped to Sinuiju. South Korea''s Red Cross planned to send instant noodles, bottles of mineral water, blankets and clothing once transport was organised. Lee Yoon-goo, the Red Cross chief in Seoul, proposed coordinating relief efforts with North Korea''s Red Cross in a telephone message via Red Cross liaison officers at the truce village of Panmunjom in the buffer zone where the Koreas have faced off since their war in the early 1950s. In Canberra, Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer said his country would help North Korea if it asked for assistance. Australia maintains diplomatic links with North Korea, but Downer said Australian diplomats had not been among a group of foreign aid workers and envoys who visited the site of the explosion this weekend. Sparrow said the explosion had "obliterated" the railroad station and the immediate surroundings. UN officials estimate that 40 per cent of the town of Ryongchon was damaged, including a three-storey primary school about 300 metres (yards) from the train station, where the roof was ripped away and the top floor collapsed. The aid workers'' visit followed a rare invitation from the North''s communist government, which relaxed its normally intense secrecy as it pleaded for international help. On Saturday, North Korea''s state news agency said the explosion was touched off by "electrical contact caused by carelessness during the a downed power line.

COURTESY OF PIXABAY TOKYO – The head of the Navy’s Pacific Fleet is calling for more transparency from China after the country announced its biggest jump in military spending in three years. Beijing will increase the spending by 8.1 percent over last year, amounting to a 2018 defense budget of roughly $175 billion, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported Monday. Xinhua cited a budget report submitted Monday to the first session of the 13th National People’s Congress now underway in Beijing. The defense budget follows increases of 7.6 percent in 2016 and 7 percent in 2017, Xinhua said. While China’s actual defense spending remains opaque, the country has undertaken a decadeslong quest to modernize its military and expand its air and naval capabilities worldwide. In recent years, China has built artificial islands in the South China Sea, militarizing them with airstrips, ports, hangars and other military-related infrastructure. During a news conference Tuesday in Tokyo, Pacific Fleet commander Adm. Scott Swift called on Beijing to explain its military spending, which he said causes anxiety in the region. “That lack of transparency is most troubling,” he said. “There’s a lot of questions on the minds of countries in the region of what exactly does this mean? People shouldn’t be left guessing as to what exactly the objective of these increases is.” Swift also called on China to clarify its intentions in the South China Sea. “The establishment of these military bases, the sense once again is to what purpose?” he said. “We see time and time again this reinforcement of the views that suggest this is a military focus, not an economic focus, not a diplomatic focus, it’s not to ensure the navigation of all ships.” Swift said the United States and other co... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The news agency said, "Its water level is increasing at a speed of 30 cm (1,060 cubic feet) per hour, putting seven power stations in the lower reaches in danger." Xinhua said, Yunnan's provincial government pledged 23 million yuan ($3.73 million) for disaster relief, while the Red Cross Society of China donated 33.36 million yuan ($5.41 million). http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/environment/~3/gTo5QqVk354/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

Mark Toner, State Department Deputy Spokesperson. U.S. Department of State - Daily Briefing: Aug.16.2016 http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/dpb/2016/08/ Full video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7y40lqiqZo U.S. CLEARED IRAQI AIRSPACE SO RUSSIA COULD BOMB NON-ISIS TARGETS IN SYRIA - 16 Aug - The U.S. military cleared a path through Iraqi airspace Tuesday so Russian bombers could fly from newly established bases in Iran to attack targets in Syria, including at least two locations where the U.S. says there are no concentrations of Islamic State forces. The Russian Defense Ministry said its bombers took off from the Hamadan airbase in northwest Iran and targeted both Islamic State fighters as well as militants previously known as the Nusra Front in three locations: Aleppo, Idlib and Deir el-Zour provinces. "The Russians did notify the coalition as per the memorandum of understanding for safety of flight," said U.S. military spokesman Col. Chris Garver. "They informed us they were coming through and we ensured safety of flight as those bombers passed through the area and toward their target and then when they passed out again." Garver could not confirm the targets, but while briefing reporters at the Pentagon from Baghdad, said two areas the Russians claimed to have bombed had few if any fighters from the Islamic State, which the U.S. also refers to by its Arabic acronym "Daesh."

Guan said China had consistently played a positive role in pushing for a political resolution in Syria. "China and Syria's militaries have a traditionally friendly relationship, and China's military is willing to keep strengthening exchanges and cooperation with Syria's military," the news agency paraphrased Guan as saying. Both also talked about personnel training and "reached a consensus" on the Chinese military providing humanitarian aid, Xinhua added, without elaborating.

SOUNDBITE (Burmese): Than Shwe, Myanmar leader: "The main purpose of my visit to China is to further promote the mutual trust and understanding, and bilateral cooperation and friendly neighbouring relationship between the two countries." 14. Wide of meeting STORYLINE: Military-run Myanmar's top leader General Than Shwe was in China on Wednesday for a state visit to his country's closest ally ahead of contentious national elections this autumn. Than Shwe held talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao in the capital Beijing after an official welcome ceremony, and spoke of the desire to further enhance bilateral relations. China strongly backs Myanmar internationally and provides it with key economic and diplomatic support. Myanmar's ruling junta has been largely shunned by the West because of its poor human rights record and failure to hand over power to the opposition party that won elections two decades ago. Than Shwe was expected to seek China's support for plans to hold nationwide elections in early November that the junta is portraying as a key step in shifting to civilian rule after five decades of military domination. Critics have called them a sham and say the military shows little sign of relinquishing control. The Myanmar leader will also meet Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and other senior Chinese officials in Beijing during his visit. He's scheduled to visit the Shanghai Expo and the manufacturing hub of Shenzhen in southern Guangdong province before he leaves on Saturday. Though no details have been released about their agenda, the talks are expected to centre on the forthcoming elections, as well as economic deals signed by Wen earlier this year. Chen Bingde, chief of the general staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, called on Wednesday for further military cooperation between Myanmar and China, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. The two countries have generally enjoyed strong relations in recent years, though there was some friction when factional fighting sent tens of thousands of Burmese refugees across the Chinese border last summer. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu told a regular news conference on Tuesday that the election was Myanmar's internal affair. Than Shwe's visit comes three months after Wen went to Myanmar - the first trip by a Chinese leader since 2001. Wen signed 15 agreements on cooperation in areas including a natural gas pipeline, hydropower station and development assistance, the official Xinhua News Agency said. China is Myanmar's third-largest trading partner and investor after Thailand and Singapore. In 2009, bilateral trade totalled 2.9 (b) billion US dollars, Xinhua said. By January 2010, China's investment in Myanmar amounted to 1.8 (b)billion US dollars, accounting for 11.5 percent of Myanmar's then total foreign investment. But this May, China made huge investments in hydropower, oil and gas, totalling 8.17 (b) billion US dollars, Xinhua said, quoting Myanmar government statistics.

US Brigadier General Charles Hooper told AP Television the aid represented the desire of Americans to "assist those in need". "The current suffering of the people of China as a result of this terrible tragedy is in the thoughts and prayers of the American people and there have been an outpouring and expressions in the United States - all over the United States - to assist those in need," he said.

"The local governments will be in charge of distribution in there effected areas. Most of this will head for Beichuan - Beichuan is one of the most seriously effected places," he said. Chinese President Hu Jintao voiced his gratitude for international aid, Xinhua reported on Sunday. More than 200 rescuers from Japan, Russia, South Korea and Singapore have been searching alongside Chinese soldiers. The number of security forces helping victims rose to almost 150-thousand, and the government added cash payments to victims to its response. The government would give 715 US dollars in compensation to each family that lost a member, China National Radio reported Saturday on its web site. At a State Council meeting hosted by Premier Wen Jiabao in Beijing, the government also decided it would also hand out a daily ration of food and US$1.40 to survivors, the report said.
