    How coal titan Peabody, the world’s largest, fell into bankruptcy xx In the starkest sign yet of declining fortunes in the coal industry, St. Louis-based Peabody Energy, the largest and most storied U.S. coal company, announced early Wednesday that it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company cited an “unprecedented industry downturn,” which it attributed to a range of factors including an economic slowdown in China, low coal prices and “overproduction of domestic shale gas.” In the United States, cheap natural gas, driven by the shale-gas boom, has been steadily eating into coal’s share of electricity generation. But Peabody was also weighed down by debt from its poorly timed $5.2 billion acquisition of Macarthur Coal of Australia in 2011, near the peak for coal prices there as Peabody underestimated rival coal supplies and overestimated the growth of Chinese coal consumption. “The debt-laden capital structure became unsustainable as cash flows worsened and access to capital markets evaporated,” Fitch Ratings said Wednesday. Peabody said that its mines would continue operating and that its operations in Australia were not included in the Chapter 11 filing. The company also said it expected its shares to halt trading on the New York Stock Exchange. In a statement, the firm’s president and chief executive, Glenn Kellow, said: “This was a difficult decision, but it is the right path forward for Peabody. We begin today to build a highly successful global leader for tomorrow.” Shares of Peabody, whose stock trades under the symbol BTU — which is also a basic unit of energy, the British thermal unit — closed Tuesday at $ 2.06, leaving the company’s market capitalization at a measly $38 million. Shares have plunged more than 99 percent from their 2008 peak and from where they stood just five years ago. Dividend payouts to shareholders were halted in July 2015.

  7. THE WAR against Men > led by an ANGRY Woman (warren) ==
  8. HALF as Popular as she says Fact Check: Elizabeth Warren Exaggerates Crowd Sizes for the Third Time CLAIM: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) “didn’t have 20,000 people” at her rally in Manhattan on Monday night, according to President Donald Trump. VERDICT: Likely true. The maximum capacity of Washington Square Park is 10,000. As Trump suggested Tuesday, Warren appears to have exaggerated the size of her rally crowd in Washington Square on Monday night — apparently the third time she has done so in recent weeks. Warren’s campaign claimed that 20,000 people had shown up for the event. However, as Breitbart News reported, New York City Parks said that the park did not hold more than 10,000 — the maximum permitted for the event. Last month, in Minnesota, the Warren campaign claimed that she had drawn a crowd of 12,000 to the campus of Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. But college officials told Breitbart News that the field only had capacity for 3,000, with some “spillover.” Given that the event had been moved outdoors out of concern that the largest indoor hall, at a capacity of 4,000, would be too small, a generous estimate would have put the crowd at 6,000. Nevertheless, many media outlets reported the 12,000 figure, though the only source for that claim was the Warren campaign, and there was no official count from local police, campus officials, or fire marshals.
  9. Feminine Bad Behavior is being Noticed & Understood for what it is How Feminist Social Justice Warriors are Killing Men By H.K. Rivera I have said time and time again, that feminism is akin to cancer on the world. Some will undoubtedly question my views on feminism; I agree that first wave, and even to a point second wave feminism did good things for woman and equality. The right to vote, wear clothes we feel comfortable in, and the ability to work outside the home to name a few. As third wave feminism desperately needs to embrace a cause in order to stay both relevant and valid in the eyes of society, femimists have doubled down on men in general. They denounce “the patriarchy,” the imaginary world that has men running everything and secretly holding women back from certain careers and advancement in the workplace. They even claim an imaginary wage gap is a problem. However, none of this exists in reality. Women and men think differently. I know this may be a shock to some, but our brains do in fact work differently. Women are less likely to be attracted to careers that men are typically drawn to. Engineering, math, science and work in the trades are not something many women seek out to find careers in. Just as men are typically not administrative office support, human resources specialists and even teachers very often. This being said, nobody is holding women back from certain careers; they are choosing not to pursue those careers upon entering college and then the workforce. Women also tend to take more time off than their male counterparts in the workplace. Maternity leave and personal time to care for children at home make up the majority of work absenteeism by women. Yet feminists insist that there is a gender pay gap; never once considering that men work longer hours, and are not taking as much time off. I have never experienced this “patriarchy” that purportedly oppresses women in the workplace. There may be times when disagreements over ideas happened; however in any functioning place of work where critical thinking takes place, there will be alternate views and concepts. This is not oppression. I have even had male colleagues “go to bat for me” in the workplace, stating to our supervisors that I was the correct person to work on certain projects. So why exactly are feminists of the modern era so angry with men? We live in a world where all the real problems and issues are taken care of, so virtue signaling and social justice has emerged to create issues to be upset over. Imagine waking up each day and looking for things to get riled up over and then deciding men are the root cause of all evil? Imagine turning men’s issues into a way for women to further play victim? Such nonsense has already occurred in the many media outlets, such as this article from Harpers Bazaar “Men Have No Friends and Women Bear the Burden.” Isolated men are a woman’s burden? This incessant pandering to females as the ultimate victims in an oppressive society truly needs to be culled. Photo credit: Chase Carter Men are feeling hopeless and unwanted. They are losing the ability to find purpose in life since they are repetitively enlightened by the media about how bad they are for merely existing. If you cannot find a purpose in life, what is the point in living simply to exist? This is a real problem men are facing today and it is women who caused it. We began to see how this became a problem with the #MeToo movement. What started out as good intentions to shed light on sexual assault and harassment in and around Hollywood, and then into the common workplace, rapidly turned on its own head. When all it took was a person’s word that something happened with no actual proof, this movement started targeting men. “Believe all women” was a battle cry, and yet there is evidence that some women were lying to gain fame and payouts in the end, vilifying men and ruining careers in the blink of an eye. More and more women are embracing their sexuality and having casual sex with random partners. It has been found that some of the allegations levied against men for sex crimes, were in fact women who later regretted their own decisions. The new ability to withdraw consent at any time is a dangerously slippery slope. When women make poor judgement calls and regret having sex with a man, they can accuse him of rape because they feel like it. Social Justice Warriors who are screaming the loudest at every possible turn, have decided that all men are a problem. You know these women; they constantly talk about how horrible men are, and how the patriarchy is holding them back. They set out to destroy men in general. All men are predators who are in need of being “cancelled” to these SJWs. This leads to rabid attacks on men all over social media and out in the streets in protest, as well. Imagine, if you will, being a young man, and all you hear is how terrible, atrocious, predatory, and downright evil men are. Does this type of nonstop barrage of demeaning language make for healthy self-esteem, or mental health? No. An entire group of human beings is being abused and mentally battered every day, and we wonder why male suicide is on the rise? With Mental Health Awareness in mind, it is important for SJW’s and especially 3rd wave feminists to understand that they are literally killing men. The suicide rate among males is nearly four times higher (22.4 per 100,000 in 2017) than among females (6.1 per 100,000 in 2017).According to the National Institute of Mental Health. How about we “cancel” blame shifting for poor decisions, regrets, and making yourself feel superior by demonizing another? That would certainly be a nice change of pace. Maybe the crushing depression of feeling worthless in society will lift and some much-needed civility will return. If you are in crisis, call the toll-free National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The service is available to anyone.

  10. NO BOWS from Mr Trump to foreign dictators, royals (or NATO) (drb: I added NATO) NO BOWS http://www.theamericanmirror.com/great-unlike-obama-trump-doesnt-bow-saudi-king/ GREAT AGAIN: Unlike Obama, Trump doesn’t bow to Saudi kingMay 20, 2017 By Kyle Olson What a difference an election can make for the respect American leaders have for our country. There were two very different outcomes when two American presidents greeted the king of Saudi Arabia. All eyes were on President Trump today as he arrived in the country for his first foreign trip. Video shows the president stepping off the plane and greeting King Salman: Trump stood up straight as Salman appeared to bow slightly. Trump’s posture stands in stark difference to President Obama’s in the early days of his presidency. Cameras captured Obama bowing to King Abdullah, contorting nearly to a 90-degree angle in what many called a moment of American weakness: Trump’s behavior was refreshingly noticeable, as several Twitter users contrasted the two reactions. “Look carefully at these two photos,” recording artist Vinnie James wrote. “The one on the RIGHT is a lesson in American exceptionalism: @FLOTUS no hijab, @POTUS no kowtow.”
  11. This Rise / Air alignment looks just a little different here Here's another version of that Rise / Air map : http://www.shangrila-properties.com/the-rise-makati.html : Map : Restaurants nearby About the Tiara Oriental Hotel (right next to The Rise) : "The reason my company billeted me at this hotel is its proximity to RCBC Plaza, it's a mere .30 km. walk to our Makati Office and about 10-15min walk to shopping centers like Greenbelt, Glorietta, Landmark and SM. Tiara is a small business hotel with basic amenities. I've stayed here a couple of times already on official business or with my family, and I generally like the place. My latest stay, however, was not as pleasant as my previous ones. I stayed at room 509. The shower didn't have hot water and the towels they gave me were old and nasty looking. I stayed for 3 nights, I complained about the lack of hot water in the bathroom and the old, worn out towels, to no avail. Plus, internet connection was very poor in this part of the hotel. My own mobile wifi device could hardly get a signal. The room lights are dim and not conducive for reading. The pillows are not hard, but not soft either and the closet is pretty small. Anyway, on the positive side. I like the location of the room, it's a corner room with two big windows overlooking two corner streets. The size of the room is okay, it is clean, has big mirror and it has a mini bar..." THIS is from a History of Makati : https://www.pampubliko.com/background-briefings/view/urbanization-and-the-rise-of-makati Makati City in its entirety was never intended to be a reserve of the elites. It aimed principally to be an economically integrated district, which, given its function as a space of increasingly differentiated economic activity, could also cater to the needs of the city’s working classes, primarily those working in the service sector. Today, however, it is an increasingly polarized and socially segregated city, bringing into focus the wider geography of class inequality in Metro Manila. McMicking’s initial vision of New Makati, in contrast to Forbes Park, was to make this real estate development more accessible to wider strata of income brackets, which would then be integrated into the rest of Makati’s existing economic landscape. However, this master plan, even if conceived and implemented by private capital, turned out to be equally subject to change and contestation from other forces, just like any other urbanization plan. While there was every intention for New Makati and Makati to be paired into a nominally integrated district, rising land values in the 1950s made the choice area of New Makati more expensive than anticipated, such that only high-income families could afford to settle there. What Ayala offered was not just land for houses and offices, but an American lifestyle suburban development that was particularly desirable, to the point where demand outstripped supply, prompting Garrido to conclude that "postcolonial cities are dual cities not just because of global market forces, but also because of ideological currents operating through local real-estate markets."12 Segregation of the elite grew apace, and Makati today stands to highlight the divergence in the objectives and agendas of different social actors, as well as the microcosmic example of the urban arena as contested space.
  12. ISIS, can they really stop it? Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says President Trump's orders will annihilate ISIS Tom Vanden Brook , USA TODAY Published 3:31 p.m. ET May 19, 2017 | Updated 9:51 p.m. ET May 19, 2017 CLOSE U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis outlined a new strategy for combatting the Islamic State group. (May 19) AP (Photo: Jacquelyn Martin, AP) 4751 CONNECTTWEET 1 LINKEDIN 262 COMMENTEMAILMORE WASHINGTON — New approaches approved by President Trump to defeat Islamic State militants have begun to bear fruit, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters Friday. Commanders in the field have been given greater authority to press the fight without approval from Washington, and a tactical shift to "annihilation" from a war of attrition has thrown fighters from the Islamic State, or ISIS, on "their back foot," Mattis said. "We're there to drive ISIS to its knees," Mattis said. A military analyst, however, cautioned that the threat from extremists won't end even if ISIS is destroyed, and that good governments are key to stability in the region. Mattis, along with Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Brett McGurk, the presidential envoy to the coalition fighting ISIS, gave a generally upbeat assessment of the fight that began in 2014. That's when a U.S.-led coalition, mostly using warplanes, began pounding ISIS fighters who had gobbled up large chunks of Iraq and Syria in a largely uncontested fight. There are now thousands of U.S. troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria, mostly as advisers. Trump's order, Mattis said, has shifted the focus from surrounding ISIS fighters in their strongholds and waiting them out to attacking them and choking off their lines of retreat. Mattis described foreign fighters who have descended on the region, and threaten to return to their homes in places like Detroit and Paris, as a strategic threat. He noted that ISIS terrorists have been fought by dozens of countries from Southeast Asia to Africa.
