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.

Feb 19, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia has officially joined bidding to host the 2032 Olympics following its success staging the Asian Games last year, the deputy chairman of its national Olympic committee said Tuesday, highlighting the rising ambitions of the giant but perennially underperforming Southeast Asian nation. Muddai Madang said letters from President Joko Widodo and the national Olympic committee were delivered to the International Olympic Committee's president in Lausanne last week by Indonesia's ambassador to Switzerland.

Memorial speaks to North Korea's ties to summit host Vietnam

Feb 19, 2019

BAC GIANG, Vietnam — In a rice field in northern Vietnam, 14 headstones are an enduring symbol of the wartime friendship of Vietnam and North Korea. They mark the original burial ground of North Korean pilots who died while secretly fighting alongside Vietnamese comrades against U.S. Air Force and Navy planes during the Vietnam War. The role of North Korea is a footnote in the sweeping history of that conflict, one that speaks mostly of the fraternal relations of two nations that separately fought bruising armed conflicts against the United States in the context of the Cold War. Decades later,...

Feb 19, 2019

BEIJING — The Chinese database Victor Gevers found online was not just a collection of old personal details. It was a compilation of real-time data on more than 2.5 million people in western China, updated constantly with GPS coordinates of their precise whereabouts. Alongside their names, birthdates and places of employment, there were notes on the places that they had most recently visited — mosque, hotel, restaurant. The discovery by Gevers, a Dutch cybersecurity researcher who revealed it on Twitter last week, has given a rare glimpse into China's extensive surveillance of Xinjiang, a remote region home to an ethnic...

TOKYO — The head of Tokyo's city government has declined to weigh in on the future of Japanese Olympic Committee President Tsunekazu Takeda, who is being investigated for his part in an alleged bribery scandal.
