Cadence Column: Asia, October 31, 2016


Chinese President Xi has been hailed with a personality cult akin to support for Chairman Mao, at least in some circles.

In an effort to seek their own so-called “independence”, Philippinos’ new choice of a president has thrown-off … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, March 21, 2016


Global headlines are dominated with much ado about Trumping. Everyone has something to say, Japan being slowest to judge, judging nonetheless.
