China may be using the U.S.’s system of scientific openness to advance its military power while stealing future US economic growth. China pays scientific researchers in the U.S. to “share” their innovations in exchange for money, access to research laboratories and access to speaking and publication opportunities. They do this irrespective of the researchers’ ethnicities or countries of citizenship and they require the researchers to keep these agreements secret from their employers or the U.S. government. Perhaps it is time for the U.S. to codify scientific transparency into law. In November 2019, the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations published 150 pages of evidence that the government of China has been systematically, aggressively, clandestinely and strategically stealing from America’s scientific research enterprise, exploiting the fact that this enterprise was built on American values of “reciprocity, integrity, … [Read more...] about Scientific research integrity demands transparency — the law should require it too

Michael D'Antonio is the author of the book "Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success" and co-author, with Peter Eisner, of the book "The Shadow President, The Truth About Mike Pence." The opinions expressed in this commentary are his own. View more opinion on CNN. (CNN) With so many Trump-related books already on the shelf, publishing houses have reached the point where perhaps the only author still worth hearing from would be the fly that landed on former Vice President Mike Pence's head during his debate with now Vice President Kamala Harris. Absent the fly, Simon & Schuster has signed their next-best option: Pence . The question now, is whether his story will create any buzz. Michael D'Antonio Pence, who was drafted as the pious counterweight to then-candidate Donald Trump, is one of the few major figures who stayed on the job for all four years -- no small feat, considering the high turnover in Trump's administration. (Of course, he … [Read more...] about Mike Pence knows the truth about Trump, but will he tell all?
ISLAMABAD - Officials in Afghanistan said a plane carrying a high-profile Pakistan parliamentary delegation was turned back Thursday as it was about to land in Kabul after explosives were found at the airport. The large Pakistani delegation was to stay in the Afghan capital for three days under the leadership of Asad Qaiser, speaker of the lower house of Parliament, or the National Assembly. Qaisar and his delegation were invited by his Afghan counterpart, Mir Rahman Rahmani. Abdul Qadir Zazai, a spokesperson for the Afghan Parliament, said that during construction work, a digging team found old "unexploded ordnance" in part of the airport.

BANGKOK - Ethnic groups in Myanmar’s Kayin State and elsewhere are reportedly still experiencing waves of attacks from the country’s military, the Tatmadaw, after the February coup, despite the junta’s declaration of a one-month cease-fire on March 31. The armed forces have aggressively cracked down on pro-democracy protesters nationwide since the coup, leaving thousands detained and hundreds dead. Although the current nationwide crackdown in Myanmar is the biggest seen in years, ethnic conflict in the Southeast Asian nation is not new. Myanmar, also known as Burma, is home to the world’s longest ongoing civil war, spanning 70 years with a series of ethnic insurgencies. David Eubank, head of the Thai-based Free Burma Rangers, a group that has provided medical assistance inside Myanmar, told VOA this week that daily military attacks against several ethnic minority states continue. Eubank said by phone the Tatmadaw has stepped up assaults that have led to the displacement of … [Read more...] about ‘No Cease-fire’ in Myanmar’s Ethnic Minority States, According to Humanitarian Group
