An international team of scientists has developed a diet it says can improve health while ensuring sustainable food production to reduce further damage to the planet. It's based on cutting red meat and sugar consumption in half and upping intake of fruits, vegetables and nuts. And it can prevent up to 11.6 million premature deaths without harming the planet, says the report published Wednesday in the medical journal The Lancet. The authors warn that a global change in diet and food production is needed as 3 billion people across the world are malnourished -- which includes those who are under and overnourished -- and food production is overstepping environmental targets, driving climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution. The world's population is set to reach 10 billion people by 2050; that growth, plus our current diet and food production habits, will "exacerbate risks to people and planet," according to the authors. "The stakes are very high," Dr. Richard Horton, editor in … [Read more...] about New global diet can save lives and the planet, major review suggests

Viet Nam News The 2016 international arbitration court ruling on the South China Sea was hailed as a major breakthrough as China’s extensive maritime territorial claims (the nine-dash line) were categorically deemed invalid. Yet the impact of the ruling on the ground has so far been limited and non-compliance might spell troubles for international dispute settlement mechanisms, experts have said. Trọng Kiên HÀ NỘI — The Hague-based international arbitration court announced on July 12, 2016, a landmark ruling that dealt a significant legal blow to China’s sweeping claims over most of the South China Sea (called the East Sea in Việt Nam). At the time, expectations were high that the tribunal’s ruling, in a case initiated by the Philippines over China’s aggressive attempts to prevent Filipino fishermen from fishing off the waters of the Scarborough Shoal since 2012, would have a great impact and possibly lead to a … [Read more...] about South China Sea tribunal ruling clings to relevance: experts
It was “not very reassuring,” Jeffrey Ordaniel told VnExpress, referring to the address by U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore a week ago. Ordaniel, Research Fellow with the Pacific Forum, felt that while Mattis outlined what America wants to see in the so-called Indo-Pacific Region, he failed to clearly articulate how Washington could help smaller countries resist pressure and coercion from China. He could not even clearly commit to defend the Philippines, a mutual defense-treaty ally, in the South China Sea, Ordaniel noted. The South China Morning Post quoted the Defense Secretary as saying that the "the U.S. will continue to pursue a constructive, results-oriented relationship with China, cooperating when possible and competing vigorously where we must … of course we recognize any sustainable Indo-Pacific order has a role for China." But the U.S. bark seems to lack bite, analysts feel. On May 23, the U.S. disinvited China … [Read more...] about Is the US going soft on China?
