EBOLA HYSTERIA IN THE US: LT COL SPECIAL FORCES RESPONDS

According to a report on CNN, the Ebola virus is causing a hysteria in the US. Last Friday, Obama even appointed a Czar. While our focus is staying on Ebola our troops are still fighting the real enemy ISIS. D. Scott Mann, Director/Founder of The Stability Institute spent 23 years in the Army Special Forces Career involved in Foreign Internal Defense, Counter-insurgency, and Stability Missions. He served in the Special Operations for over 18 years and has been a Green Beret for over 15 years in combat deployments in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Panama, Iraq and Afghanistan. He has been quoted frequently in Fox News, ABC News, Washington Post, among other top news sites. He is available for immediate interviews as it applies to Ebola or ISIS.

Mann states about the troops dealing with Ebola:

  • We don’t have a good handle of how Ebola is impacting us at home because our borders are still open and the mass hysteria is detracting from what is taking place overseas.
  • Having troops deployed is a real distractor and an illusion instead of how badly we are dealing with policy.
  • There is a real strategic rise regret now
  • What happens when first death (KIA) comes home no operation name?

Mann asks the question, “Is West Africa poised for terrorist takeover?”

  • The ramifications of an epidemic such as Ebola is frightening. Ebola could destabilize the region. Many phenomena cause instability to include disease outbreak, population displacements caused by fear of outbreak, and lack of support for/confidence in governance from lack of ability to contain outbreaks.

Violent extremists, criminals, and other malign actors find almost immediate safe haven in areas of instability—if we look at West Africa writ large we’re talking about secondary effects that may help to provide groups like Boko Haram and al-Qa`ida in the Islamic Maghrib traction in new areas….probably not Liberia, but more room to maneuver in Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Cameroon, and Nigeria.  

  • Systemic cause of instability must be addressed before societal capacity is degraded not just in the Ebola infected areas but in the region writ large.

Clips of Lt Col Mann:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVcJIKKOUsk

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-L91jS8vrMc

Scott Mann’s Positioning on ISIS beheadings:

  • ISIS will murder Westerners no matter what we do.
  • They will bring their violence here also.
  • The problem is air strikes and a limited ground presence won’t defeat them.
  • We must get in close with special ops at village levels and help tribes and ethnic groups resist them and push them out of their safe haven

On Extremists:

  • While the number of US Extremist Fighters in Syria & Iraq is disturbing, the potential & capacity to bring violence & attack on the US is far greater when they come home or remain home.
  • This is the far greater threat because these guys live next door to many of us in America
  • They have U.S. Citizenship and move freely amongst us like chameleons
  • On our home turf it becomes an issue of quality not quantity…meaning it doesn’t take a large army to pull off a Boston Bombing…it takes one radical that is armed with the knowledge, tools, skills and mindset.
  • Real key – no one is talking about our borders…this is an unwatched, unmanned pipeline for drugs and human trafficking that already exists.  If I were an extremist terrorist group, I would be invading this existing pipeline to bring in the tools/resources I needed to infiltrate the extremists that are already on the home front. 

Mann states when it comes to ISIS its not if the US will get attacked it is when:

Nexway Brazil Grows by Leaps and Bounds, Announces Key Customer Wins

Nexway Brazil Grows by Leaps and Bounds, Announces Key Customer Wins

Local subsidiary of digital commerce leader now firmly established in the fast-growing Brazilian market for digital video games, apps, and software products

PR Newswire

NANTERRE, France, SAN FRANCISCO and SAO PAULO, Oct. 20, 2014

NANTERRE, France, SAN FRANCISCO and SAO PAULO, Oct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Digital commerce provider Nexway announced that its Brazilian subsidiary has grown by leaps and bounds in the first half of 2014, securing significant customer references for its best-in-class managed e-commerce solutions for publishers and online retailers of digital video games, apps, and software products on PC and Android™ platforms.

"We see the Brazilian market for digital goods as one of the most promising for Nexway,” said Gilles Ridel, Nexway Founder and CEO. “Having secured top-tier references in the country for both our direct-to-consumer and indirect managed e-commerce solutions, we look forward to helping other digital publishers and their online retailers succeed in the Brazilian market,” also said Gilles Ridel.

"The Brazilian digital commerce market is challenging on several counts," said Marcos Souza, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer of No Zebra Network, whose editorial and download websites (including Baixaki and Click Jogos) have over 36 million unique visitors, giving the company one of the top ten largest online audiences in Brazil. “Consumers expect to be offered local payment methods, such as Boleto Bancario and installment payments. Complying with local e-commerce tax legislation takes local expertise. Nexway’s solidly implanted presence in the country and extensive digital PC software catalog was key to Baixaki’s choice of Nexway as a digital partner in Brazil,” added Marcos Souza.

Onshore Brazilian Subsidiary since 2011

Recognizing the need for a local presence, Nexway set up a dedicated Brazilian subsidiary in Sao Paulo in 2011.

In Brazil, where stringent and complex regulations are in place, Nexway has the ability to receive end-user payments in Brazilian reals, execute currency conversion, and pay remittances in its customers’ preferred currency, including U.S. dollars and euros. In the Brazilian states where declarations of online sales must be performed online in real-time, the Nexway platform is integrated with all required state fiscal services.

Nexway supports popular local Brazilian payment methods including Boleto Bancario, local credit cards and installment payments - ensuring frictionless e-commerce checkouts in the country. Support for local credit cards is key in Brazil where offshore transactions using international credit cards incur extra taxes, collected by the banks.

Top-Tier Reference for the Company’s Managed E-Commerce Solutions

Nexway is pleased to announce that it now counts local Brazilian customer references for its full set of managed e-commerce solutions.

Sofitel Legend People’s Grand Hotel Xi’an

XI’AN, ChinaOct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Sofitel Luxury Hotels is pleased to announce that discerning travelers can now Live the first Legend in China and the fifth in the world when they stay at Sofitel Legend People’s Grand Hotel Xian

Opened in 1953, as the State Guesthouse, the hotel was designed by Hong Qing, Chief Architect of the Northwest Institute of Architectural Design. He skilfully sited the building in an extensive garden, formerly part of the grounds of an imperial palace. Hong Qing used a number of French touches, including fleur-de-lis (stylized lily) as a recurring motif. 

"As the first Legend hotel in Accor China’s portfolio and only the fifth in the group’s world map, we feel this beautiful property strikes the perfect note of French elegance in the heart of this timeless city, with its long history as a cultural crossroads at the start of the Silk Road," said Paul Richardson, Accor Greater China Chief Operating Officer. 

Lofty ceilings and generous proportions in the 71 rooms and suites convey a rare feeling of time and place. Guests will enjoy all the sophisticated French pampering touches associated with Sofitel such as Hermes toiletries and French-designed floral arrangements. 

Additional features include personalized butler service, private health club, swimming pool and spa, an authentic Italian restaurant, an exclusive top-floor Louis XIII Bar and a private museum. 

The hotel extensive garden is the perfect setting for enjoyment of Chinese tea or English-style afternoon tea. Some VIP guests have left permanent souvenirs in the form of special trees that continue to flourish, most notably 12 stately olive trees grown from seeds presented to the first premier Zhou Enlai during an official visit to Albania. It is also the Tai Chi Class venue for in-house guests from Monday to Friday.

The hotel’s unique private museum features memorabilia from the early years. The most precious items include a gold serving platter and matching cloche, used only for VVIPs in times past when this was Xian’s only hotel licensed to accommodate foreigners.

COLDPLAY’S GHOST STORIES LIVE 2014 OUT 24 NOVEMBER

COLDPLAY’S GHOST STORIES LIVE 2014

OUT 24 NOVEMBER ON DVD/CD/ DIGITAL

 

Coldplay have today announced the 24 November release of a new concert film and live album, Ghost Stories Live 2014, on DVD/CD, and digital formats. The release is available to pre-order via Coldplay.com and iTunes now. An exclusive trailer can also be viewed at Coldplay.com.

Filmed by Grammy-nominated director Paul Dugdale, the Ghost Stories Live 2014 film documents the band’s unique performance of the Ghost Stories album to a small handful of fans in March 2014, two months prior to the album’s release. Shot in a custom-built amphitheatre at Sony Studios, Los Angeles, the ground-breaking production sets the band’s performance against stunning 360-degree and overhead imagery.

 

Said Chris Martin: “The Ghost Stories show at Sony Studios was a very special moment for our band. The magic theatre built by our incredible crew with the 360 screens was literally a dream come true. And it was the first time anyone outside of our studio had heard the new songs. This film is basically our original vision for the Ghost Stories album.”

 

Parts of the performance were first broadcast in May 2014 as a Coldplay TV Special by major broadcasters around the world, including NBC in the US and Sky Arts in the UK (where the film has already been nominated for Best Live Coverage at this year’s UK Music Video Awards). But Ghost Stories Live 2014 is the first time that the performance has been sequenced as originally conceived: a visual representation of the Ghost Stories album.

 

The release also contains an exclusive Ghost Stories live album, with audio recorded at the band’s rapturously-received shows in London, Sydney, Paris, Cologne, New York and Los Angeles between April and July 2014.  

 

The package is completed by eight music videos from the Ghost Stories era, including two never-before-seen films for B-sides All Your Friends and Ghost Story plus the exclusive Extended Director’s Cut of the Magic video (with a brand new cameo from Peter Fonda).

 

Ghost Stories Live 2014 is Coldplay’s first DVD release since the Grammy-nominated Live 2012 concert film.

ZAP and Jonway Auto Receive Accolades from China Vice Premier Ma Kai on E-380 EV SUV

SANTA ROSA, Calif., Oct. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — ZAP (ZAAP), an Electric Vehicle (EV) automotive company incorporated in California Bay Area, and its subsidiary Jonway Auto received accolades from China Vice Premier Ma Kai on its E-380 SUV, which is the countries’ first type approved and fully certified EV SUV. Prior to China’s National holiday on September 25th, Jonway Auto in partnership with Tianjin Lishen Battery Company exhibited Jonway Auto’s SUV in Tianjin for China’s Vice Premier Ma Kai. Vice Premier Ma Kai was appointed as the Vice Premier of China’s State Council at the sixth plenary meeting of the first session of the 12th National People’s Congress (NPC) March 16, 2013. He is a member of the 18th CPC central committee politburo, and is the Director of the State Council Leading Group for Promoting Medium and Small Enterprises, and the President of the Chinese Committee of Governance, and Vice Premier of the State Council and the country’s State Councilor.

The event hosted by Tianjin Lishen Battery Company was focused specifically on China’s promotion and support of the electric vehicle market expansion, and to place priority on the development and adoption of EVs in China. Vice Premier Ma Kai gave clear and firm support for China’s commitment to the EV market and the commitment to support continued development of advanced technologies for new and improved batteries and electric power train technologies. This special visitation event by Vice Premier Ma Kai highlights the recognition of ZAP and Jonway Auto’s SUV EV, and emphasizes ZAP’s strategic partnership with Tianjin Lishan Battery Company, and showcases the quality of ZAP’s EV product and technology with its E-380 SUV which is seen by its Chinese partners as one of the higher quality EVs in China.

With ZAP’s focus on supporting Chinese government EV fleets, the visibility and recognition by the Chinese government for ZAP’s SUV and minivan EV and its partnership with large state owned enterprises like Lishen Battery Company are important in laying the framework for endorsement by the local government to adopt the EV for its fleet use.
