"We plan to make CIMB Cycle a yearly event and look forward to having it at different locations within Malaysia and the region," he said in a statement issued to the media.

The votes have been tallied, and Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor has won by a landslide. But even as congratulatory cheers ring out for Hong Kongs first female chief executive, the citys next leader has little time to celebrate, given the plethora of problems she has inherited, ranging from a politically divided society to skyrocketing housing costs and widening income inequality. Lam, 59, won 777 votes from the 1,194-member Election Committee, made up of mostly Beijing-loyalists. The...

“At peak times, I had a monthly income of more than NT$200,000 working eight jobs at a time; during the hardest times, however, I had to split a single filled bun to cover two meals,” Chi recalls. Chi learned while growing up that she needed to steel herself against those who were trying to deflate her dreams. In elementary school, she was at the top of her class. One time, the teacher asked the students to write down what they wanted to be when they grew up. While Chi’s classmates wanted to be teachers or flight attendants, Chi wrote she was planning to retreat into the mountains to learn martial arts, and then she would return as a warrior for justice. “The teacher scolded me harshly for this. But I am truly a person who seeks justice and walks the walk,” says Chi. This justice-seeking knight went on to change the aviation industry. Victor Taichung’s Huang observes that Taiwan’s aviation industry heavily depends on the AIDC subcontracting international orders.

Around that same time, another cop in the area was also exposed and arrested for trafficking teens. Lamin Manneh, 32, of Baltimore, pleaded guilty to traveling across state lines and using a telephone and internet to operate a prostitution business using two teens he prostituted out over 300 times. According to the AP, Wilson also said she is concerned about whether human trafficking is a factor, citing the case of 8-year-old Relisha Rudd, who has been missing since she vanished from a city homeless shelter in 2014. A janitor who worked at the shelter was found dead of apparent suicide during the search for the girl. “They prey on the homeless, they prey on low-income children, they prey on the runaways, they prey online,” Wilson said. “Whether these recent disappearances are an anomaly or signals of underlying trends, it is essential that the Department of Justice and the FBI use all of the tools at their disposal to help local officials investigate these events, and return these children to their parents as soon as possible,” Richmond said.

"Our primary focus is a tax cut for the middle income (earners) and not at the top." Mnuchin declined to say what corporate tax rate would be proposed, other than it will be "a lot lower" than the current rate of 35 percent. He also didn't reveal whether the tax proposal would include a contentious border adjustment tax that is part of a House tax plan. The adjustment tax calls for a 20 percent tax on imports and Mnuchin acknowledged it has both positive and negative features. Mnuchin said the president's tax plan would be introduced soon and hopes it will win congressional approval as early as August. Presidential spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters at the White House Friday an August deadline is an "ambitious one" but added it is a goal the administration "is going to try to stick to." Failure to advance the replacement health care bill again exposed deep divisions within the Republican party.

The public sees the value system at the top is maximize my personal profit by whatever means are available , i.e. complicity, corruption, monopoly and rentier rackets , and they follow suit by pursuing whatever petty frauds and rackets are within reach: tax avoidance, cheating on entrance exams, gaming the disability system, lying on mortgage and job applications, and so on. But the scope of the rentier rackets is so large, the bottom 95% cannot possibly keep up with the expanding wealth and income of the top .1% and their army of technocrats and enablers, so a rising sense of injustice widens the already yawning fissures in the body politic. Meanwhile, diverting the national income into a few power centers is also destabilizing , as Central Planning and Market Manipulation (a.k.a. the Federal Reserve) are intrinsically unstable as price can no longer be discovered by unfettered markets.

However, recent studies show a decline in the contribution of migration to urban population growth. This can possibly be explained by the argument that migrant workers are finding it difficult to get a toehold in cities. Who, then, is filling the gap between the rising ranks of rural destitute and the faltering ranks of permanent migrants to the cities? They are the seasonal or circulatory labour migrants who remain virtually invisibilised, informalised and unenumerated -- the footloose migrants who make their ends meet by adding up both their seasonal remittances and the income from the shrinking agricultural sector. An estimated 12.24 million people are seeking work for two to six months as per National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) data. Of these, 77 per cent are resident in rural areas and more than two-thirds migrated to urban areas. Some estimates show that about 35-40 million labourers -- almost half the number of casual labourers outside agriculture -- could be seasonal migrants.

2% this year should be supportive for market sentiment. Nazri said this showed that the economy was growing more than double the rates the International Monetary Fund had predicted for advanced economies while showing that Malaysia was firmly on the path to become a high-income nation. On the technical front, he said, immediate uptrend supports for the index were at 1,700 and 1,730. However, a convincing breach above 1,760 resistance would mean that the FBM KLCI would aim for the 1,780 and 1,800 levels. On a week-to-week basis, the FBM KLCI increased 0.55 of-a-point to 1,745.75 from 1,745.20 last Friday. The FBM Emas Index rose 24.52 points to 12,365.86, FBMT 100 Index was up 20.7 points to 12,017.00 and the FBM Emas Syariah Index gained 45.52 points to 12,772.75.
