Even, dare we say it, not a particularly politically risky year. But we’re setting ourselves up for trouble down the road. Big trouble. And that’s our top risk. #TopRisks2019

11 Surprising Things That Will Happen By 2050!
 
12:00
Eleven of the most surprising things bound to happen by 2050! Which decades-old document will finally be revealed to the public? What does the future hold for robots? Find out as we look at 11 Surprising Things That Will Happen By 2050. #11 Elvis Unveiled The foundation of the entertainment industry was shook in August of 1977 when headlines everywhere announced The King of Rock and Roll’s passing. Elvis Presley had met his untimely end at the relatively young age of 42. While an initial report cited a heart attack as the cause, a toxicology report would later come out reporting high levels of multiple narcotics in his system. Upon this second report, Presley’s father Vernon had the autopsy sealed from the public. But in 2027, the full report will be unsealed and open to the public, granting the iconic rockstar’s fan base some sense of closure. #10 Robo Love Hundreds of romance novels in bookstores across the world feature science fictional tales of erotic encounters with androids, cyborgs, and robots. While this may sound like an unrealistic fantasy, modern technology is actually much closer to delivering this strange experience than you might realize. Engineers have been developing interactive robots purposed for romantic encounters for the past decade and the latest results are astounding...as well as a bit strange. Various manufacturers have created human-esque machines capable of casually conversing, memorization, and even philosophical discussion. These robots also serve a physical purpose, aiming to please adults in more ways than one. As artificial intelligence develops, so too will the level of intimacy between people and their high-tech love instruments. It’s only a matter of time until humans begin relationships reminiscent of the 2013 film “Her”, the film in which a lonely writer falls head over heels for his operating system. And when this occurs, it brings with it a whole new slew of moral questions and ethical dilemmas. #9 America Dethroned The future brings many changes, but not all of them are bound to be necessarily new. Afterall, history repeats itself. Such was the basis for author and historian Jacques Attali when he wrote the 2009 international best seller “A Brief History of the Future: A Brave and Controversial Look at the 21st Century”. In this book, Attali outlines a number of ways he believes the world will change based on the ways the world has evolved in the past. Chief among these predictions is the fall of the planet’s most powerful empire: the United States of America. Globalization, ecological threats, and the swelling financial and political strength of corporations are the main culprits he cites in eventually uprooting America from their seat of power. “Financially and politically exhausted, like all other empires before it, the United States will cease to run the world, “ Attali wrote. He’s not alone in thinking this as many financial experts believe the economies of China and India to quickly pass the US in coming years. Similarly, emerging technologies and changes in international expanse are predicted to challenge America’s military strength, eventually displacing it as the strongest on the planet.

GSF 2017: "Is Strategy Dead?"
 
01:15:17
8:00 a.m. - 9:20 a.m. - Welcoming and Global Forecast 2030 An interactive multimedia presentation on the most critical challenges facing the world now and into the next decade. Surveying a range of critical issues, including the revolution in artificial intelligence, economic, energy and demographic drivers, and dynamics in the global governance and security landscape, the presentation will describe challenging policy choices that will shape our future. The audience will have an opportunity to vote on a series of questions about the direction of the world from today to 2030. Welcoming Remarks and Introduction Dr. John J. Hamre President and CEO, CSIS Global Forecast 2030 Facilitated by: Dr. John J. Hamre President and CEO, CSIS 9:30 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. The West Strikes Back: A Transatlantic Playbook to Counter Russian Active Measures Over the past year, the American people have taken a crash course in understanding the multidimensional impact of active Russian measures in the United States, particularly through information and computational technology. Russian efforts to increase distrust in democratic institutions and leaders, heighten societal fear, encourage disunity and discord have placed the 21st century battlefield squarely on the manipulation of public opinion and the reduction of trust in democracy. From the U.S. and French presidential elections to manipulating public opinion in NATO countries, we now have a better understanding of the “Kremlin Playbook”. However, what we need is a long-term transatlantic playbook to counter and ultimately defeat active Russian measures. Bringing together some of the foremost thought leaders on the subject, this panel will explore the key elements of an effective Western counter strategy by examining efforts to raise public awareness about Russian disinformation and active measures, stabilizing and increasing the transparency of democratic institutions, enhancing investigative journalism to uncover illicit Russian financing, and understanding how social media tools amplify Russian disinformation in order to develop a whole-of-society response to a sustained Russian attack on American democracy and its security. Featuring: Hon. Jamal El-Hindi Acting Director, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, U.S. Department of the Treasury Gen Michael Hayden (USAF, Ret.) Principal, The Chertoff Group; former Director of the National Security Agency, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Mr. Drew Sullivan Editor and Founder, Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project Mr. Clint Watts Robert A. Fox Fellow, Foreign Policy Research Institute; Senior Fellow, Center for Cyber and Homeland Security, The George Washington University Moderated by: Ms. Heather Conley Senior Vice President for Europe, Eurasia, and the Arctic; and Director, Europe Program, CSIS 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. The purpose of this panel is to explore the widening gap between defense strategy and the resources available and to discuss how it can be reconciled. The panelists will be asked to provide thoughts on whether they believe there is a strategy-resource mismatch, how it can be bridged, and if developing and implementing a strategy is still possible in our current political climate. The panel will include a full perspective of views on defense strategy and the budget. Featuring: Dr. Emma Ashford Research Fellow, CATO Institute Amb. Eric Edelman Counselor, Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments; Former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, U.S. Department of Defense Dr. Kathleen Hicks Senior Vice President, Henry A. Kissinger Chair, and Director, International Security Program, CSIS Dr. William Ruger Vice President for Research, Koch Foundation, and Vice President for Research and Policy, Koch Institute Moderated by: Mr. Todd Harrison Director, Defense Budget Analysis, Director, Aerospace Security Project and Senior Fellow, International Security Program, CSIS
Joint South-North Korea civic event may be back on table as Seoul greenlights request for contact
 
02:31
靑 "민간교류, 대북제재 틀 훼손않는 범위내에서 유연 검토" Another civic group is given government permission to contact North Korea. They plan to set up an event to celebrate the landmark joint declaration anniversary. However, according to our Kwon Jang-ho, the Presidential office will not be involved, and they plan to ensure civilian exchanges remain within the limits of international sanctions. June 15th, year 2000 -- South Korean President Kim Dae-jung is seen shaking hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. That landmark deal appeared to signal a significant step towards lasting peace on the peninsula. But since then, several nuclear tests by Pyongyang, and two successive conservative administrations in Seoul have caused that relationship to disintegrate. A joint South-North event commemorating the deal used to run annually, but that was stopped nine years ago. However, it may be coming back. On Wednesday evening, Seoul approved a civic group's request to contact the North and try to restart the commemorations. Plans are already in motion, with representatives from the group having met with their counterparts from the North back in February in China, where they made an initial agreement to hold the event in either Pyongyang or the Kaesong Industrial Complex. But before the event can take place they will have to make an application for the actual visit itself. The Presidential Office also reiterated that any civilian exchanges will need to be made without compromising the international sanctions currently in place on the regime. "Regarding civilian visits to North Korea, we will review and consider their objectives, how they will affect North-South relations, and the current international mood." An official from the Unification Ministry said that an application for a visit is more complicated than an application for contact, as variables such as purpose, content, location, and personnel all have to be carefully reviewed. The official said they cannot outline the specific conditions needed, but the civic group are confident that they will be met. "We believe that this kind of social and cultural exchange does not fall under the conditions of international sanctions. If the government is serious about re-engaging with North Korea, I don't see any reason why our application would not be approved." If the go ahead is given, not only will it suggest the possibility of better relations with the North, but it will also stir up memories of the landmark deal it celebrates... and the hope that went with it.

David Goldman: Will China overtake the U.S. as the world's leading superpower?
 
01:13:40
Transcript: https://bit.ly/2OghJ53 David Goldman: Will China overtake the U.S. as the world's leading superpower? David Goldman is an American economist, music critic, and author, best known for his series of online essays in the Asia Times under the pseudonym Spengler. He is the Wax Family Fellow at the Middle East Forum, a Senior Fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, and a member of the Board of Advisors of Sino-Israel Government Network and Academic Leadership (SIGNAL). According to the Claremont Review of Books, the "Spengler" columns in the Asia Times have attracted readership in the millions. His analyses of global events have become highly regarded. Former C.I.A. National Intelligence Council Vice Chairman Herbert E. Meyer said, "Ask anyone in the intelligence business to name the world's most brilliant intelligence service, and we'll all give the same answer: Spengler. David P. Goldman's 'Spengler' columns provide more insight than the CIA, MI6, and the Mossad combined." Goldman concealed his identity under the "Spengler" pseudonym until 2009, when he revealed his identity in the Asia Times article, "And Spengler is..." and the First Things article "Confessions of a Coward". Goldman regularly appears as a guest on CNBC's Larry Kudlow Program, where he has been an outspoken critic of Federal Reserve efforts to resuscitate the American economy. He is the author of How Civilizations Die: (And Why Islam is Dying Too) and It's Not the End of the World, It's Just the End of You: The Great Extinction of the Nations. #China #Economy #Capitalism

Since the “Brexit” vote, the breakdown of the transatlantic system has accelerated, with the bankruptcy of Deutsche Bank as the greatest signal of this impending doom. Europe, the United States, and other nations of the transatlantic now have only one option: to join the new paradigm of “win-win” cooperation, expressed by the interconnected projects of the New Silk Road (One Belt, One Road) and the Eurasian Economic Union. If the United States and Europe do not choose to work with the leading nations of Eurasia, Russia and China, then the world faces extinction through thermonuclear war.

From Oxus to Euphrates: Sasanian Empire Symposium
 
04:52:38
Several experts participated in an all-day symposium on the legacy of the ancient Persian Sasanian empire (224-651 A.D.). The Sasanians ruled a large empire in Central and Western Asia, stretching from the Oxus River to the Euphrates and from the Hindukush to Eastern Arabia, for over 400 years (224-651 B.C.). Known as Iranshahr (the Domain of Iran), it was a powerful empire that engendered much of what came to be known as the Iranian culture in the medieval and modern periods.

Navigating Arctic Resources: Preservation versus Exploitation
 
01:03:13
Navigating Arctic Resources: Preservation versus Exploitation Justin Strauss, Assistant Professor of Earth Sciences, Dartmouth College The circum-Arctic region remains one of the last unexploited wilderness areas on our planet. Despite tantalizing estimates of vast economic resources, scientists still lack consensus on some of the most fundamental aspects of the Arctic's geological evolution. As a result, this region has become an exploration frontier that will not only become more accessible with climate change, but also more economically viable as resources dwindle in other parts of the world. How do we intend to balance the continuous pressure for global economic growth versus the preservation of this unique wilderness? How will the Arctic’s rapidly changing climate affect this decision? This talk will attempt to set the framework for past and future exploration of the Arctic in order to motivate arguably one of the most important resource-based issues of our generation.

Energy Efficiency - Savings for the future
 
04:09
While rich in natural resources, Bosnia and Herzegovina is still relies heavily on coal, oil, and natural gas for its energy. These energy producing materials are non-renewable, expensive and are damaging to the environment. A recent study has shown that the infrastructure sector consumes about 57% of Bosnia and Herzegovina total energy, compared to below 40% in EU countries. There are hundreds of old buildings throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina requiring immediate energy efficiency interventions. The UNDP calculated that if all school and public buildings would manage to save 1,000 Euros a month in energy by applying new energy measures, it would sum up over 30 million Euros in annual savings. For a country that is still struggling with economic development, an increase in energy efficiency resulting in monetary savings could make a significant difference.

Boosting fiscal management based on better governance is key to sustained growth: UN ESCAP
 
02:48
UN 아태경제사회위원회 2017 경제성장 전망 론칭 A UN commission forecast steady economic growth for countries in the Asia-Pacific countries, but it'll be at a slower pace than before due to a range of global uncertainties. The group held a panel discussion in Seoul on ways to overcome various risk factors. Our Oh Soo-young was there. Effective governance and improved fiscal management are essential to achieving robust economic growth and keeping it sustainable. That's according to a survey released last week by the UN's Economic and Social Commission for the Asia Pacific. "So the weaker demand for goods and services in the Asia Pacific, and you combine that with the protectionist measures, it is obviously an area of concern. But putting in place proactive fiscal policies, effective governance, structural reforms, you're able to get the better of it." To offer a Korean perspective on how to tackle challenges to growth,... a panel discussion was held in Seoul on Friday. Korea shared its experience of encouraging private sector loans to small- and medium-sized businesses,...largely regarded as key drivers of job creation, innovation, and growth. In the late 1970s, Korea established an institution to provide security for lenders, while offering easier access and lower interest for smaller companies. Since then, the amount of loans given to small companies has outgrown the amount provided to larger companies, which typically pose lower credit risks, helping consolidate a healthy SME loan market. "Unfortunately, most of the developing countries have slow development of financing sectors. So that's why governments need to intervene- to accelerate the growth of SMEs." Other examples shared include Korea's public finance management and the deposit insurance scheme-- which safeguards individual savers against the possible failure of the banking sector. To optimize such measures and mobilize resources to support them,... the survey says raising the quality of governance is vital. This means enhancing the rule of law, tackling corruption, and building stronger institutions based on transparency and accountability. "Next week, ESCAP will begin discussions on how countries in the Asia-Pacific region can enhance economic cooperation to overcome shared vulnerabilities and unlock their full potential.

3. Multiracial Identity (October 4, Saturday)
 
01:27:05
7th Annual Critical Race Studies Symposium: Whiteness As Property: A 20-Year Appraisal 3. Whiteness as Property and Multiracial Identity Moderator: Kevin Noble Maillard, Professor of Law, Syracuse University Panelists: Kevin Noble Maillard, Professor of Law, Syracuse University Rose Villazor, Professor of Law, University of California, Davis School of Law Carla Pratt, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law, The Dickinson School of Law, Penn State Addie C. Rolnick, Associate Professor, William S. Boyd School of Law, University of Nevada Panel description: Scholar-Activist Gloria Anzaldúa once questioned the existence of true racial borders in the United States, and this issue becomes more pertinent as the nation grows more cognitively multiracial. But will statistical change be met by a substantive transformation of longstanding racial paradigms, or retrench whiteness as property? The U.S. Census reports that whites will become a minority in 2043. At the same time, interracial intimacy and reproduction will continue to increase. This was famously chronicled on the cover of Time Magazine in 1993, which featured a computer generated face of demographically proportional multiracial woman, titled “The New Face of America.” This roundtable will assess the reality, resistance, and realization of that vision and the diverse group of discussants will approach this issue informed by their own research and personal backgrounds. Rose Villazor will talk about the impact of immigration on the “browning” of America; Carla Pratt will discuss the difficult issue of race, identity, and finite ethnic resources in Native American tribes; Kevin Noble Maillard will discuss Loving v. Virginia and the lingering taboo of black-white intimacy; and Addie C. Rolnick will present ideas on inter-racial histories generally, on theorizing anti-Black and anti-Indian racism and on teaching inter-racial histories. If the “New Face of America” will one day be nonwhite and heterogeneous, will it break the mold of a collective vision of race as separate, bordered phyla? How would multiraciality as a collective norm challenge the idea of Whiteness as Property? With these predicted demographic changes before us, will we view race differently in the 21st Century?

The world of oil and gas is changing. On the supply side, the rebound in production from the Permian has transformed the geopolitical pressures and has raised the question if OPEC has any ability to control prices. With the projected transformation of the transportation fleet to electrical systems, does the idea of "lower for longer" have validity? These are some of the questions that were addressed at the symposium held on November 16, 2017 at the University of Houston.
