China’s revolution at 70: Behind its amazing progress

first_imgWhat major country in the world can claim greater progress than People’s China in raising the standard of living and the educational level of its people over the last 70 years?In 1949, the leader of the Chinese socialist revolution, Mao Zedong, declared victory over the landlords, corporations, banks and imperialists who had ruled China. His famous words were, “China has stood up,” delivered to an immense crowd in Tiananmen Square. China was then a terribly poor and underdeveloped country of 541 million people. The vast majority were peasants who had lived on the edge of starvation for generations, suffering monstrous abuse from the landlords. A small, but equally impoverished, working class had long been in rebellion against foreign and domestic exploiters. Women were on the bottom of the heap, their feet bound and their labor discounted.Today, China is a country of 1.4 billion people. Its advanced economy has made it the world’s largest exporter of manufactured goods. Life expectancy has more than doubled since the revolution — from only 36 years in 1949 to 76 years today. The adult literacy rate has risen from an estimated 15-20 percent in 1949 to 97 percent today.Yet, when People’s China celebrated its 70th anniversary this Oct. 1, the bourgeois media mentioned none of this tremendous progress achieved by the Chinese people. Everything was focused on accusing China’s Communist Party leaders of being dictatorial and autocratic.What the capitalists around the world dare not admit is that China’s centrally planned economy is superior to the dog-eat-dog system of capitalism, in which privately owned corporations and banks hold a monopoly over production and must turn a profit for their obscenely rich owners.China’s incredible advances have come despite its leaders deciding they had to compromise with world capitalism and let in foreign exploiters to get the capital to build up the country’s infrastructure. That has been a two-edged sword, resulting in a class of millionaires now in China, but it has not brought about a counterrevolution. State ownership and planning continue to hold the upper hand.The increasingly hostile attitude of the U.S. rulers toward China comes from the fact that these capitalists had engaged in commerce with China and set up factories there not only to make money, but also with the intention of undermining the socialist underpinnings of the Chinese economy. And that hasn’t happened. Nor have Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods, and China’s responding tariffs on U.S. goods, broken down the will of the 90-million-member Communist Party to defend its socialist system. It is Wall Street and the stock market here, not China, that is trembling over the effects of the trade war.Workers World newspaper’s very first issue in 1959 was headlined “Hail the Communes!” Those communes started People’s China on its trajectory toward a socialist future.China’s massive celebrations on its 70th anniversary showed the enthusiasm of the people for their great achievements. They are looking not to the capitalist “West,” but to themselves and their own system to blaze new trails forward in a world shaken by the emergence of a global climate crisis. All the more reason for progressive people to reject China bashing and focus on how to make system change a reality everywhere.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Growth Energy Thanks America’s Farmers on National Agriculture Day

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE In recognition of National Ag Day, a day to celebrate the abundance of food, feed and fuel that American farmers provide to the world, Tom Buis, co-chair of Growth Energy, issued the following statement:“American farmers are to be admired. They are stewards of the land who ensure sustainability for future generations. They are innovative, dedicated and produce an abundance of food and fuel for our nation and the world. American farmers are the backbone of our nation. Their hard work and efficiency help to bolster rural economies while growing our nation’s economy, providing economic security for all. It takes a lot to get food from the farm to the table and we all have America’s farmers and ranchers to thank for it. By Gary Truitt – Mar 15, 2016 Growth Energy Thanks America’s Farmers on National Agriculture Day Facebook Twitter Previous articleGive Soil Time to Dry Before PlantingNext articleInterest Rates Not Changing at Next Fed Meeting Gary Truitt Home Energy Growth Energy Thanks America’s Farmers on National Agriculture Day “Furthermore, American agriculture is at the forefront of biofuel development. Farmers are helping produce homegrown, sustainable biofuels that are cleaning the air we breathe, reducing harmful toxic emissions and providing a 21st century fuel for 21st century vehicles. These innovators are decreasing our dependence on dirty fossil fuels and foreign oil imports, reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions and creating jobs that cannot be outsourced. The fuels they produce also provide consumers with a choice and savings at the pump. “American consumers pay less per capita than any other country for food. Our grocery stores are well stocked and American agriculture is the envy of the world. Agriculture creates economic security for our rural communities and has allowed hardworking Americans to secure a place in the middle class. As we celebrate National Ag Day, Americans nationwide should be proud to acknowledge the many contributions agriculture has made to society and the leading role farming communities play in our country’s economy.”last_img read more

Leisa Collins Completes Pasadena House Portrait Series

first_imgLocal artist Leisa Collins is proud to announce she has completed the first phase of a series of original pen and watercolor architectural house portraits featuring homes she loves in Pasadena. She is delighted to reveal 125 Pasadena portraits to the community and is currently working to publish a book that will include her favorite Pasadena house portraits along with an array of paintings featuring homes and diverse architectural styles across 43 states in the USA.The Pasadena portrait series began three years ago after Leisa and her husband, Bruce, moved to South Pasadena and fell in love with the aesthetic of the local neighborhoods. “Pasadena has one of the richest and interesting collections of original homes in the country, especially classic Craftsman homes.”About Leisa Collins ArtA native of New Zealand, Leisa first began drawing and painting local historic homes in her hometown of Auckland three decades ago. She then became involved in a variety of non-profit activities that took her to the four corners of the world. As she traveled she documented architecture with photos and sketches. In 2009 she relaunched her artistic career and began depicting the historic homes and buildings of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Since then she has criss-crossed the USA four times documenting homes while completing home portrait commission requests. Word soon spread and today Leisa receives multiple requests from around the country every week, which she never turns down.“Homes are like people,” states Leisa. They are all uniquely different and have their own character and style. That’s what makes my job so creative and so much fun. An added bonus is that the pleasure in creating the house portrait can then be experienced every day by the homeowner who made their home art inspiring!”In early 2013, Leisa decided she wanted to give back to people in the community who create beautiful homes and buildings and she instituted the Leisa Collins Historic Preservation Award. The award recognizes “deserving individuals around the country who have set a stellar example of historic preservation through their efforts, skills or craftsmanship with regard to their historic home or building in their area.”Every Leisa Collins Art painting is created with the finest, long-lasting, archival materials. They are drawn and painted by hand using pen and watercolor paint.See The Pasadena SeriesThe Pasadena Portrait Series: Phase One is viewable in an online gallery here. Leisa is currently accepting commissions for home portraits, and is happy to expand the Pasadena series, and also capture the beauty of homes in surrounding areas.

Season Outlook: Caltech Cross Country Enters 2016 with Depth and Youth

Required fields are marked * Community News Whereas last season could have been considered one of transition, the 2016 Caltech cross country team is focused on solidifying the foundation built by last year’s freshman class, in part due to the addition of a whopping 15 rookies.Schedule ReleaseRecruit Release – Men | Women“To call this team young is an understatement,” Head Coach Ben Raphelson said. “The newcomers are light on experience, but come in with impressive high school careers and track seasons to build on. The future is bright, but as we’ve been asking ourselves all preseason, is that future in two-to-three years, or two-to-three months?”Men’s TeamBehind two-time NCAA qualifier Aditya Bhagavathi, the 2015 team recorded its best season in over a decade, placing fifth at the SCIAC Championships and earning its first regional ranking in program history. Despite the graduation of five seniors, including three of the squad’s top four regular scorers, the 2016 team is still ticketed to finish in the same position of sixth in the SCIAC standings as last year.The sophomore duo of captain Rohan Choudhury (Cupertino, Calif. / Monta Vista) and Rohan Doshi (West Windsor, N.J. / West Windsor-Plainsboro North) heads the squad having spent their rookie year as fixtures in last year’s scoring lineup. Both stepped up their performance significantly during the spring track & field season, with Choudhury cracking the program Top 10 list in both the 3000- and 5000-meter runs as Doshi ended up just three seconds shy of qualifying for finals in the 1500m at the SCIAC Championships.“Both Rohans learned the importance of balance between academics and athletics as they transitioned to college life and competition last fall,” Raphelson said. “We got a much more accurate glimpse of their potential on the track.”While the graduation of Bhagavathi was always going to be a significant loss, Raphelson could have done no better in assembling a deep and talented group to weather that departure. Along with Choudhury and Doshi, freshmen Tommy Alford (Dublin, Ohio / Dublin Coffman), Greg Gephart (Reno, Nev. / Robert McQueen), Tanner Moore (Roseville, Calif. / Oakmont), Nikhil Poole (Arcadia, Calif. / Flintridge Prep), Simon Ricci (Chicago, Ill. / Latin School of Chicago) and Gianmarco Terrones (McLean, Va. / The Potomac School) have all been part of an increasingly large lead group in workouts, forming the core of a team which has the potential to be a significant presence in the SCIAC before long. Sophomore Joey Hong (Campbell, Calif. / King’s Acad.) – another regular in the 2015 scoring lineup – and freshman Sam Blazes (Seattle, Wash. / Sidwell Francis) are also knocking on the door of that lead group.“I’m already seeing further improvement from Choudhury, Doshi and Joey from last fall and spring, while Nikhil has arrived in exceptional shape – this entire squad is focused and determined to find out how good they can be as soon as this year,” Raphelson said. “I’m not setting any limits on what any of them or we as a team can accomplish.”Another quartet of runners – junior captain Gene Vaughan (Mission, Texas / Sharyland), freshman David Fager (Miami, Fla. / Belen Jesuit Prep), sophomore Michael Hashe (Plano, Texas / Texas Acad. of Math & Science) and junior Mason MacDougall (La Mirada, Calif. / La Mirada) – have also demonstrated that they are well ahead of where they were last year.“You would be hard-pressed to script a better team with this kind of youth – whether by ability, work ethic or enthusiasm,” Raphelson said. “Last year’s team found success with a front-runner competing with other teams’ top guys and a mix of seniors and freshmen rounding out the scoring group. This year’s squad is, again, very young, but very talented, deep and close in ability. It’s a different dynamic, but one that can be similarly successful.”Women’s TeamAll-time top-15 performers Melissa Gutierrez (Pico Rivera, Calif. / El Rancho) and Michelle Marasigan (Elk Grove Village, Ill. / James B. Conant) return to build off their instant-impact rookie seasons and are joined by a trio of seniors who bring tremendous leadership to the group. Emily Mazo (Bala Cynwyd, Pa. / Harriton) and Gauri Shastri (West Lafayette, Ind. / West Lafayette Jr.-Sr.) return from abroad looking to pick up where they left off as sophomores, with Mazo pairing Lilly Luo (Belle Mead, N.J. / Montgomery) as captains.“The seniors have already demonstrated their value to the group through their dedication and mentorship,” Raphelson said. “We’re fortunate to have them – they will make a huge difference through their performances as well as guiding the newcomers.”Leading that freshman class are Jena Srikanth (Fresno, Calif. / Clovis North), Sophie Walton (Emerald Hills, Calif. / Sequoia) and Skye Reese (Concord, N.H. / Concord), with sophomore Cherie Jia (Auckland, New Zealand / Auckland International Coll.) and rookie Michelle Zhao (San Diego, Calif. / Canyon Crest Acad.) also in the early mix for scoring spots in the lineup.“Jena, Sophie and Skye have all shown strong performances in cross country over their high school careers,” Raphelson said. “Cherie and Michelle clearly trained hard over the summer and are also poised to make a big impact that could surprise some people.”Junior Robin Brown (Potomac, Md. / Richard Montgomery) and freshman Nicole Feng (Bethany, Conn. / Amity Regional) have shown tremendous improvement over the past year as well and could break into that top seven before long.“This is a larger, deeper group than we had last year, and the overall talent level reflects that,” Raphelson said. “I see this group of newcomers teaming with Michelle Marasigan, who improved considerably during track, and Melissa to form the deepest group we’ve had in years. They’re all eager to race in a Caltech uniform, and it’s exciting to think what this can all add up to.”The season begins on Saturday, Sept. 3 at the Redlands Invitational, where both men and women will run shortened distances of 6k and 4.5k, respectively. Both teams will be eyeing the first leg of championship season in the SCIAC Multi-Duals, which take place a race earlier this year, on Oct. 1, followed by the SCIAC Championships on Oct. 29 and the NCAA West Regional on Nov. 12.“On paper, this is one of the most talented teams in program history,” Raphelson said. “That creates some really exciting opportunities, and it will come down to our ability to navigate the ups and downs of a collegiate cross country season. Everything we’re doing is geared to produce our best performances during the championship season. The bulk of this freshman class has come here expecting to be competitive on the conference and regional level, and the team’s actions to this point certainly make me think that is possible. I’m excited to see where this group takes us.” 4 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News center_img Business News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Make a comment Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. About Author: Brian Honea U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Alabama), Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, has legislation in the works that would significantly change the U.S. Federal Reserve Board of Governors, according to media reports.Citing “multiple sources briefed on the bill,” the Hill reported that Shelby’s proposed legislation calls for the establishment of a congressional commission to restructure the Fed. Barring a joint resolution of disapproval from Congress, the Fed would be required to implement whatever changes the commission suggests.Senator Jack Reed (D-Rhode Island) has reportedly included in the draft of the legislation a provision that would make the appointment of the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York subject to Senate approval. Currently, the president of each of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks is selected by a search committee and subject to approval of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors.According to the report from the Hill, a group of bipartisan lawmakers has expressed concern recently that the New York Fed is too powerful, especially considering its close physical proximity to Wall Street.Even though the bill being drafted is bipartisan, some Democrats on the Senate Banking Committee, including Ranking Member Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) have reportedly expressed concerns about the bill, believing it could pave the way to make further amendments to the controversial Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.Whether or not Shelby’s bill can get a floor vote will depend on getting the support of the moderate Democrats on the Committee, according to reports.Spokespersons from both Reed’s and Shelby’s offices did not immediately respond to a request for comment.The draft of the bill also includes a provision that provides a formula for raising interest rates by requiring the Fed’s policymakers to use a mechanical rule for establishing monetary policy; a provision to reduce the amount of time it takes the Fed to publish transcripts from the Federal Open Market Committee; a provision to increase the threshold for designating a financial institution as “systemically important” from $50 billion to $500 billion; and a provision to increase the threshold for regulators to define a “small bank” from $10 billion to $50 billion in assets, according to reports. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Home / Daily Dose / Report: Senator Drafting Proposal to Reform Federal Reservelast_img read more

(Credit: Pixabay/GREGOR) Royal Dutch Shell has announced its plans to back off from the Lake Charles liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Louisiana due to challenging market conditions.Energy Transfer will take over the development of the LNG project and will become the lead project developer.Shell will support Energy Transfer in the bidding process for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contracts for the LNG project.Energy Transfer plans to evaluate the alternatives, including the possibility to bring other equity partners and reduce the size of the project from three trains with 16.45 metric tons/year of LNG capacity to two trains with 11.0 mtpa.The Lake Charles facility comprises four LNG storage tanks, two deep water docks in the Calcasieu Channel and other infrastructure assets.Shell to provide transition support to Energy TransferLNG executive vice president and president Tom Mason said: “Having the ability to capitalize on our existing regasification infrastructure at Lake Charles provides a cost advantage over other proposed LNG projects on the Gulf Coast.“The Lake Charles project also benefits from its unparalleled connectivity to Energy Transfer’s existing nationwide interstate and intrastate pipeline system that provides direct access to multiple natural gas basins in the U.S.”In March last year, both the companies have signed a project framework agreement (PFA) to advance the project towards a potential final investment decision (FID).Under the agreement, Shell and Energy Transfer have agreed to share the cost of developing the project as they have jointly undertaken the EPC bidding process.Furthermore, Shell has also agreed to support the Energy Transfer during the transition period to facilitate Energy Transfer’s plans to continue the development of the project.last_img read more
