A Chinese news agency Xinhua had just unleashed a world first news anchor AI presenter which based on a real human’s facial expressions. You could easily tell the speech is spoken by AI since the voice is quite digitized. Anyhow, I think they could as well make the voice seems more human-like if they choose.
I wonder if someone else out there is watching this video and has an idea that what if we could also get rid of real actors by using this technology, right? I think it’s possible in the future that we could use AI to replace real human actors! Nonetheless, I could also foresee the possibility of using this technology to fabricate and frame a good person in a scandal!
In a democracy like the United States, a leader who got too many baggages like Hillary Clinton, you lose, because the United States loves the underdog. In authoritarian state such as in China, a leader can win according to how specialize and how large the experience he or she has. I think Hillary Clinton lost the White House to president elect Donald Trump, because she represents a dynasty. The people in the United States are always looking out for fresher ideas that may give them hope, and president elect Donald Trump is definitely something that a majority people of the United States are going for. Of course, it’s hard to say how well would president elect Donald Trump run against someone else. It’s now clear that Hillary Clinton isn’t going to be the next president as she represents the Clinton dynasty.
Before Donald Trump is a clear known winner of the presidential election, a lot people were and probably still are against him. Will he be able to bring those people onto his side in the coming years? If president elect Donald Trump won’t be able to bring the oppositions to work with him, we may very well have another four or eight years of divisions within the United States. Since the United States is a home to so many different groups of ethnicities and cultures, I fear divisions within will bring down the United States even more. I hope that our next president will be able to unite the people so the United States won’t degrade. After all, what people need most are security and wealth building opportunities, because these things will improve people lives.
An ocean away, the Atlantic that is, and so I kind of being ignorant to what is really going on in the Middle East. Still, I’m surprised to see China is now sending military advisers to Syria so China can aid Bashar al-Assad in fighting against the rebels and other extremists. Meanwhile, Russia is bombing the extremists (i.e., ISIS/ISIL) in Syria from Iran’s military airbase. Putting these facts together, it’s now clear that China is joining in to help Russia, Iran, and Syria in fighting against the rebels and extremists that are trying to collapse Bashar al-Assad’s government. Lately though, it seems that the ISIS/ISIL forces are being scattered and being stamped out of Syria, because Russia is still stepping up to drive these forces out of Syria.
Since China’s economy keeps on growing, it needs energy supplies such as oil from the Middle East to secure Chinese future, and so China is going against one of the creeds that China has always held dear most — which is not to interfere with internal matters of another country or region. Furthermore, China is looking to realize the grand plan of connecting Europe and everything in between to China through the One Belt One Road (or Silk Road) initiative/project. With such a grand plan, China needs the Middle East to calm down much more to ensure the safety of the people, companies, and whatever that are involving in developing and realizing the grand Silk Road project.
Since China is now slowly forming a coalition with Russia and Iran, I wonder how Europe is going to react to this. China is key in Russia’s plan, because China is a very big business partner of most countries in Europe. The United States may have her plate full from now on, because Europe could decide to be less helpful to the United States since China is now joining in the Middle East’s mess. If things keep on getting escalating, I think Europe would have less appetite in seeing business with China goes sour, because we’re talking about peace and prosperity in long term here. Still, Europe could also decide to help the United States fight against China/Russia/Iran coalition, because Europe has a special relationship with the United States.
Whatever the case, it’s bad for the United States, because the United States is still supporting the rebels — who are trying to collapse the government of Bashar al-Assad’s regime. Check out the video right after the break to see the news on China joined up with Bashar al-Assad’s regime to fight off ISIS/ISIL and the rebels.
According to various news sources and Simon Dixon, People’s Bank of China has announced China’s own digital currency. According to Mr. Simon Dixon, China is buying up gold and announcing digital currency to hedge against the upcoming biggest collapse of most fiat currencies in the world. Near the end of his video, Mr. Simon Dixon says people may adopt China’s digital currency, but this will encourage many more people to use Bitcoin. Mr. Simon Dixon thinks that Bitcoin is more attractive to people since it got no governments’ censures.
In my opinion, any government has the ability to outlaw Bitcoin. I think Bitcoin might not have such a bright future when China herself is creating a brand new digital currency. If China is going to be successful in convincing her own people and other peoples to use her digital currency, she can totally outlaw Bitcoin. Once Bitcoin is being outlawed in China, China’s own digital currency will continue on to be one of the future, central crypto currencies.
Of course, any other government besides Chinese government can follow China’s playbook and come up with another government’s digital currency. Thus, I don’t think China will be the only country that would create a government sanction digital currency. I guess it would be fun to see a government sanctions another with outlawing another government digital currency within one’s own territory.
In the video, Mr. Simon Dixon suggests that China may use the brand new digital currency to implement quantitative easing. Instead of printing more fiat currency, China may as well create the second tier monetary system such as digital currency to help ease the many debt related bubbles that fiat currency has been creating. It’s an interesting idea for sure, but I think only China would know what she will do with her brand new digital currency. I guess time will tell.

Something big is happening under the surface, but we have no idea what is going on. Basically, security-intelligence.org’s article “DEBKAfile Exclusive Report: A Chinese aircraft carrier docks at Tartus to support Russian-Iranian military buildup” suggests that China’s aircraft carrier Liaoning has docked at Syrian port Tartus to back the Russians up on building up forces in Syria for fighting against ISIS. I’m not very well informed with the Middle East and Syria situations at all, but this news tells me that united force building of Russia, China, and Iran in this region prepares for something big. Perhaps, fighting ISIS is only a piece of the puzzle, because ISIS isn’t strong enough to encourage China, Russia and Iran to combine forces and take actions in this region. Without China in the picture, I think the overall picture of the Syrian conflict was murky but somewhat clearer than how it’s now. Meanwhile, China is cooperating with the United States in boosting trades and agreeing on cyber security. Nonetheless, geopolitically, China is helping out Russia and Iran in securing Bashar Assad’s power in Syria.
Dr. Ron Paul warns more bad time to come as China is now beginning to participate in currency war. Today, as it’s happening now, China devalues its currency to 1.9% weaker than the pegged Dollar (USA) (according to WSJ). Market in the USA goes negative, and the world is actively watching China’s movements. Dr. Ron Paul thinks what China is doing cannot solve China’s slow down in the long run, because the market eventually will force other countries to do the same thing which negates the benefits of what China is doing now. Since China is devaluing its currency as we speak, can the FED in USA be able to raise interest rate? Is China sending a message to the IMF and USA for not including China’s Yuan in SDR basket thus far? How far China will devalue her currency? Anyhow, check out Dr. Ron Paul’s message on China’s currency devaluation in the video right after the break. Enjoy!!!
