The world is anticipating an annual iron ore production loss of 70 million metric tons after Brazilian state regulators revoked the license for the second-largest iron ore mine owned by Vale (NYSE: VALE) – the world’s largest iron ore miner – on February 5, Bloomberg reported (http://nnw.fm/tAeU3). The 30 million metric tons of production lost at this mine are in addition to Vale’s earlier announcement that it is taking 10 of its mines with upstream tailings dams out of production, representing 40 million metric tons of production.

UN finds organized crime expanding in Southeast Asia

Jul 21, 2019

BANGKOK — Organized crime syndicates in Southeast Asia are flourishing in the illegal trafficking of drugs, wildlife, counterfeit goods and people, a U.N. report said Thursday. The 179-page report from the United Nation's Office on Drugs and Crime said that corruption and freer movement of people and goods have facilitated the trafficking, adding that organized crime groups in the region are becoming more mobile as they exploit areas with weak border control and use advanced logistics to move products. "Southeast Asia has an organized crime problem, and it is time to coalesce around solutions to address the conditions that have...

Hong Kong elders march in support of young demonstrators

Jul 21, 2019

HONG KONG — Thousands of Hong Kong senior citizens, including a popular actress, marched Wednesday in a show of support for youths at the forefront of monthlong protests against a contentious extradition bill in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory. The seniors also slammed the police for their handling of a protest Sunday in Hong Kong's Sha Tin district. That protest was mostly peaceful but ended in mayhem when violent scuffles in a shopping mall saw dozens injured, including a policeman who had a finger bitten off, and over 40 people detained. Veteran actress and singer Deanie Ip, who joined Wednesday's demonstration,...

Hong Kong protests expand to oppose China, with no end near

Jul 21, 2019

HONG KONG — Colin Wong has come to know the sting of pepper spray well. After more than a month of demonstrations in Hong Kong's sweltering heat, memories of the burning sensation are a constant reminder of what protesters call an excessive use of force by police. Each time he felt the now-familiar sting, Wong, 18, was more determined to not back down. "Every time we come out and stand up, problems continue to arise afterward," Wong said, referring to the protesters' dissatisfaction with responses from law enforcement and Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam. "Trust in the whole Hong Kong...

Former Mitsubishi workers seek assets sale for forced labor

Jul 21, 2019

SEOUL, South Korea — Colonial-era Korean workers want a court to allow the sale of assets of their former Japanese employer so they can be compensated for forced labor decades ago. The development comes as South Korea and Japan spar over historical issues and a decision by Tokyo to tighten controls on high-tech exports to South Korea, potentially affecting its manufacturers and global supplies of high-tech products like smart phones and displays. Lawyers and supporters of the Koreans who were forced to work for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries during Japan's 1910-45 occupation of Korea said in a joint statement Tuesday they'll...
