What is RESOURCE CURSE? What does RESOURCE CURSE mean? RESOURCE CURSE meaning - RESOURCE CURSE definition - RESOURCE CURSE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The resource curse, also known as the paradox of plenty, refers to the paradox that countries with an abundance of natural resources, specifically non-renewable resources like minerals and fuels, tend to have less economic growth, less democracy, and worse development outcomes than countries with fewer natural resources. This is hypothesized to happen for many different reasons, and there are many academic debates about when and why it occurs. Most experts believe the resource curse is not universal or inevitable, but affects certain types of countries or regions under certain conditions. The idea that resources might be more of an economic curse than a blessing began to emerge in debates in the 1950s and 1960s about the economic problems of low and middle-income countries. The term resource curse was first used by Richard Auty in 1993 to describe how countries rich in mineral resources were unable to use that wealth to boost their economies and how, counter-intuitively, these countries had lower economic growth than countries without an abundance of natural resources. An influential study by Jeffrey Sachs and Andrew Warner found a strong correlation between natural resource abundance and poor economic growth. Hundreds of studies have now evaluated the effects of resource wealth on a wide range of economic outcomes, and offered many explanations for how, why, and when a resource curse is likely to occur. While "the lottery analogy has value but also has shortcomings", many observers have likened the resource curse to the difficulties that befall lottery winners who struggle to manage the complex side-effects of newfound wealth. The IMF classifies 51 countries as “resource-rich.” These are countries which derive at least 20% of exports or 20% of fiscal revenue from nonrenewable natural resources. 29 of these countries are low- and lower-middle-income. Common characteristics of these 29 countries include (i) extreme dependence on resource wealth for fiscal revenues, export sales, or both; (ii) low saving rates; (iii) poor growth performance; and (iv) highly volatile resource revenues. A 2016 meta-study finds weak support for the thesis that resource richness adversely affects long-term economic growth. The authors note that "approximately 40% of empirical papers finding a negative effect, 40% finding no effect, and 20% finding a positive effect" but "overall support for the resource curse hypothesis is weak when potential publication bias and method heterogeneity are taken into account." Natural resources are a source of economic rent which can generate large revenues for those controlling them even in the absence of political stability and wider economic growth. Their existence is a potential source of conflict between factions fighting for a share of the revenue, which may take the form of armed separatist conflicts in regions where the resources are produced or internal conflict between different government ministries or departments for access to budgetary allocations. This tends to erode governments' abilities to function effectively. Even when politically stable, countries whose economies are dominated by resource extraction industries tend to be less democratic and more corrupt. According to one academic study, a country that is otherwise typical but has primary commodity exports around 5% of GDP has a 6% risk of conflict, but when exports are 25% of GDP the chance of conflict rises to 33%. "Ethno-political groups are more likely to resort to rebellion rather than using nonviolent means or becoming terrorists when representing regions rich in oil." There are several factors behind the relationship between natural resources and armed conflicts. Resource wealth may increase the vulnerability of countries to conflicts by undermining the quality of governance and economic performance (the "resource curse" argument). Secondly, conflicts can occur over the control and exploitation of resources and the allocation of their revenues (the "resource war" argument). Thirdly, access to resource revenues by belligerents can prolong conflicts (the "conflict resource" argument).

Ressourcenfluch: Konzernmacht, Rentenökonomie, Ressourcenextraktivismus, globalisierter Kapitalismus

Das theoretische Konzept des Ressourcenfluchs (resource curse) beschreibt jenes, auf dem ersten Blick Paradox erscheinende Phänomen, dass Ressourcenreichtum vieler Länder nicht zur Vermehrung von Wohlstand und Entwicklung, sondern zu Armut, Staatszerfall, (Bürger-)Kriege, Krisen, Gewalt und Korruption führen (Croll, Guesnet & Schmitz 2012: 23; Vgl.

Obama Aide On Border Influx: 'It Doesn't Make Sense To Compare This To A Natural Disaster'
 
00:54
Skipping a visit to the overwhelmed Southwest border during a fund-raising trek to Texas on Wednesday could be President Obama's "Katrina moment," Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, suggested earlier this week. But on Wednesday morning, a top Obama aide said there's no comparing Obama's decision to bypass the Texas border with President Bush's decision to view hurricane-devastated New Orleans from the air -- a move for which Bush was heavily criticized. "It doesn't make sense to compare this to a natural disaster," Cecilia Muñoz, director of Obama's Domestic Policy Council, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "This is a humanitarian situation that we have been on top of from the very beginning," she insisted, as she described how the effort to deal with the influx of illegal immigrants involves "the entire federal government" as well as "our partners in Central America." Pressed on the issue, Muñoz said, "The president's instructions to his team and his own efforts have been to stay focused on what's going to be most impactful on dealing with the urgent humanitarian situation." She also noted that he's meeting Wednesday with "community leaders" in Texas, "who are actively engaged in the situation and trying to be part of the solution here." "Look there's people trying to turn this situation into a political football. I understand that, I work in Washington. The president's going to stay focused on what works here." Muñoz, speaking quickly and rebuffing interruptions, listed everything the Obama administration has done to deal with the border crisis, which she was careful to call a "humanitarian situation," not a "humanitarian crisis," as Obama himself has described it. She blamed the uptick in illegal immigration from Central America on smugglers spreading "deliberate misinformation," and none of the liberal "Morning Joe" hosts challenged her on that point. "From the moment it became clear in May that the numbers this year were going to be very, very different from previous years, the president called out the entire federal government to respond. He asked FEMA to coordinate, so we've engaged DHS, HHS, the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense to help us open shelters for the kids. To surge our resources at the border -- to make sure that we are both doing right by the process for new entrants, but also being effective in removing the folks who are ultimately not be allowed to stay in the United States..." "This is a dangerous situation for kids. It's really important that we think of it from that perspective," she said.

Jeffrey Sachs - Urgent Earths Overpopulation
 
05:35
**The content herein is for educational and religious purposes only** http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/17/opinion/sachs-global-population/index.html?hpt=hp_c2 http://www.clerus.org/clerus/dati/2011-07/23-13/Social_and_Ethical.pdf http://www.leighbureau.com/speaker.asp?id=152 CNN ran the following blood covenant propaganda article today regarding the sad condition of the over population of the Earth. Interestingly, the article is by Jeffery Sachs, the director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University. Please note however that the article does not state that Jeffrey Sachs is also a member of the Vatican's Pontifical Academy of justice and peace. As a member of the VPAJP Mr. Sachs fails to mention the article Transition from a Planned Economy to a Market Economy recently published on July 23, 2011 for the Vatican's Pontifical Academy of Justice and Peace. Question: Was there a recent census in your neighborhood? Your city or town perhaps? Your state? Was a census taken of all the citizens in your country? Undoubtedly, the answer is NO. This is a perfect example of a play on words to invoke fear from the citizens, that's you and me the sheeple and to demand action. Since Mr. Sachs, hey wait a minute, I wonder if he is related to Goldman Sachs :-)? Mr. Sachs closes his article with the following: Two centuries ago, the British thinker Thomas Robert Malthus famously warned that excessive population growth would cut short economic progress. That is a threat still with us today, but it is a warning, not an inevitable outcome. We face an urgent task: to adopt more sustainable technologies and lifestyles, and work harder to achieve a stable population of some 8 billion or so by mid-century, rather than the current path, which could easily carry the world to more than 10 billion people by 2100. An urgent, task, eh? 200 years ago, he quotes a man, who had no way of conducting a global population census to make such a claim regarding the earth's inability to sustain her inhabitants. What an irony. With more than half of the earth, unpopulated there is more than enough land on the outer earth as well as the inner earth to feed the entire planets for years to come and that includes her creatures. By this clear example of the manipulation of the world with a play on words and dis information, perhaps Mr. Sachs and his colleagues should be sacked. Final word: Sounds like Pontifical gobbledegook to me. Knowledge is power. We love you! Peace be with thee.

There are many theories and much academic debate about the reasons for, and exceptions to, these adverse outcomes. Most experts believe the resource curse is not universal or inevitable, but affects certain types of countries or regions under certain conditions.

The storm made landfall on the Florida Panhandle Wednesday afternoon as one of the most powerful storms to ever hit the U.S. The intense Category 4 hurricane was packing maximum sustained winds of 155 mph when it crashed ashore near Mexico Beach, a lightly populated tourist town about midway along the Panhandle. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) described Michael as "potentially catastrophic." Debris is strewn across miles of Florida's coastline: Roofs and awnings peeled back from buildings, pieces of homes scattered amid snapped trees and downed power lines, chunks of beaches washed away. Follow our live blog: https://www.cbsnews.com/live-news/hurricane-michael-path-florida-storm-surge-weather-forecast-track-today-2018-live-updates-coverage/ Forecasters mark landfall as the place and time when the center of the eye strikes land. Minutes earlier, Michael's eyewall came ashore between Panama City and St. Vincent Island, and the hurricane center warned everyone inside the relative calm of the eye not to venture outside. Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 45 miles from the center. Those winds were tearing some buildings apart in Panama City Beach. One beachfront structure under construction could be seen collapsing, and metal roofing material flew sideways across parking lots amid sheets of rain. -- Subscribe to the CBS News Channel HERE: http://youtube.com/cbsnews Watch CBSN live HERE: http://cbsn.ws/1PlLpZ7 Follow CBS News on Instagram HERE: https://www.instagram.com/cbsnews/ Like CBS News on Facebook HERE: http://facebook.com/cbsnews Follow CBS News on Twitter HERE: http://twitter.com/cbsnews Get the latest news and best in original reporting from CBS News delivered to your inbox.

It is search focused on a specific vertical. Vertical search engines mine data for one specific niche of the market place — for example, travel, jobs, hotels, music, movies, and even health care. As web sites and data proliferate, the task of locating specific information gets tougher. Vertical search engines provide an efficient way to get to that information. Verticals are very different from domain specific portals...

It's a complicated issue, but when presented with the facts it is easy to see that the government needs to take another look at how it does contracting.

The Energy Independence Implications of the Auto Bailout Proposal (Part 2)
 
48:22
The Energy Independence Implications of the Auto Bailout Proposal (Part 2) - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2008-12-09 - (Part 1 Not Currently Available.) As Congress considers a multi-billion dollar program of loans to America's auto industry, many measures of success or failure exist for the industry and the government's attempts to help the automakers. Chief among those measures of success is how effectively America's auto industry, and the industry as a whole, is transformed to build cars for the future that reduce our dependence on oil. Will the auto industry meet the fuel economy rules passed by Congress and signed into law nearly a year ago, which could revitalize the industry? Should American taxpayers expect even higher fuel economy performance in return for their investment of additional billions in loans? Do the auto companies' plans impair their ability to meet the current fuel economy regime? A panel of auto industry and fuel economy experts will discuss these issues and other energy implications of the automotive industry loan program at a hearing tomorrow before Chairman Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming. Chairman Markey authored the House language that became the current fuel economy standards of at least 35 mile per gallon by 2020. WITNESS LIST: Ms. Joan Claybrook, President, Public Citizen; Mr. Reuben Munger, Chairman and Co-founder, Bright Automotive; Dr. Peter Morici, Professor of International Business, Robert H.

Joan Donovan on The Open Mind: Social Media Platforms and Their Irresponsibility
 
27:46
On this week’s episode of The Open Mind, we invite Joan Donovan to share her insights into the media downturn and how we can incentivize integrity in our modern day communications. We've intently covered technologies that degrade democracy and civil society here on the program, and today we resume that examination with Joan Donovan. Joan is the project lead for media manipulation at Data and Society. She's conducted action research to map and improve the communication infrastructure built by protestors. She's also researched white supremacists use of DNA ancestry tests, social movements in technology, specifically identifying information bottlenecks, algorithmic behavior, and organizations with like-minded networks. In the Guardian, she and Dana Boyd make the case for quarantining extremist ideas. When confronted with white supremacists, newspaper editors should consider what she and Dana talk about as strategic silence. Watch on PBS: http://www.pbs.org/show/open-mind/ Watch on Thirteen.org: https://www.thirteen.org/openmind/ Follow The Open Mind on Twitter: https://twitter.com/OpenMindTV Follow Joan Donovan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/BostonJoan Follow Alexander Heffner on Twitter: https://twitter.com/heffnera Together, we discuss how the rapid growth of the internet and social media platforms have created unmanageable discussions. Donovan believes that social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter need to take a hard look at the ethics of journalism to see why journalists developed standards, and ethics, and protocols, and adopt those ethics into their algorithms, protocols and content moderation. Donovan also describes the ways in which algorithms have been harmful. For one, young, white nationalist men have been circumventing social platforms attempt at moderation through algorithms by using code-words determined on off-platform sites. Another problem Donovan notes is algorithms creating echo-chambers that are difficult to escape online. Even if a white nationalist tries to pivot out of their echo chambers, social media algorithms will continuously serve them more and more extremist and white nationalist content. Donovan believes that social media platforms lack systems of accountability that take responsibility for these problems and take responsibility for providing a platform and space for groups to organize around violent destruction.

Entertainment, former majority owner of The WB. The network's name is an abbreviation derived from the first letters of the names of its two parent corporations (CBS and Warner Bros.). The CW Television Network made its debut on September 18, 2006, after its two predecessors, UPN and The WB, respectively ceased independent operations on September 15 and 17 of that year. The CW's first two nights of programming – on September 18 and 19, 2006 – consisted of reruns and launch-related specials. The CW marked its formal launch date on September 20, 2006, with the two-hour premiere of the seventh cycle of America's Next Top Model. Originally, the network's programming lineup was intended to appeal mainly to women between the ages of 18 and 34, although starting in 2011 the network increased in programming that appeals to men. As of August 2017, the CW's audience is 50% male and 50% female. The network currently runs programming seven days a week: airing Mondays through Fridays in the afternoon and Sundays through Fridays in prime time, along with a Saturday morning live-action educational programming block produced by Litton Entertainment called One Magnificent Morning, which is the successor to the animation block Vortexx. It is also available in Canada on pay television providers through stations owned-and-operated by CBS Corporation and affiliates that are located within proximity to the Canada–United States border (whose broadcasts of CW shows are subject to simultaneous substitution laws imposed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, if a Canadian network holds the broadcast rights); it is also available through two affiliates owned by Tribune Media that are classified in the United States as superstations – New York City affiliate WPIX and Los Angeles affiliate KTLA. Additionally, The CW is available in Mexico through affiliates located near the Mexico–U.S. border (such as KFMB-DT2/San Diego-Tijuana, KECY-DT3 in El Centro, California, KVIA-DT2 in El Paso, and KCWT-CD with simulcasters KFXV-LD2 and KNVO-DT4 in McAllen–Brownsville, Texas) on pay television providers. In both Canada and Mexico, some CW affiliate signals originating from the U.S. are receivable over-the-air in border areas depending on the station's signal coverage.

TWC was one of the largest mini-major film studios in North America prior to its financial troubles and eventual bankruptcy in February 2018. Founder and chief executive Bob Weinstein previously owned a small stake in the company.The company dismissed joint founder and chief executive Harvey Weinstein in October 2017, after over 100 women came forward to accuse him of sexual harassment, assault or rape.On February 26, 2018, The Weinstein Company announced in a statement that it would declare bankruptcy following the collapse of a buyout deal with an investor group led by Maria Contreras-Sweet, the former head of the Small Business Administration under President Barack Obama. However, in a surprising turn, the TWC board and the investor group confirmed on March 1, 2018, that they had reached a deal in which TWC would sell all of its assets for US$500 million. On March 6, 2018, the acquisition deal collapsed again after the studio had an extra debt of US$50 million revealed. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on March 19, 2018. On May 1, 2018, Lantern Capital emerged as the winner of the studio's bankruptcy auction. On July 16, 2018, it was announced that The Weinstein Company has shut down and its assets were sold to the newly created Lantern Entertainment.

Founded in 1865 by Ezra Cornell and Andrew Dickson White, the university was intended to teach and make contributions in all fields of knowledge—from the classics to the sciences, and from the theoretical to the applied. These ideals, unconventional for the time, are captured in Cornell's founding principle, a popular 1868 Ezra Cornell quotation: "I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study."The university is broadly organized into seven undergraduate colleges and seven graduate divisions at its main Ithaca campus, with each college and division defining its own admission standards and academic programs in near autonomy. The university also administers two satellite medical campuses, one in New York City and one in Education City, Qatar, and Cornell Tech, a graduate program that incorporates technology, business, and creative thinking. The program moved from Google's Chelsea Building in New York City to its permanent campus on Roosevelt Island in September 2017. Cornell is one of three private land grant universities in the United States and the only one in New York. Of its seven undergraduate colleges, three are state-supported statutory or contract colleges through the State University of New York (SUNY) system, including its agricultural and human ecology colleges as well as its industrial labor relations school. Of Cornell's graduate schools, only the veterinary college is state-supported. As a land grant college, Cornell operates a cooperative extension outreach program in every county of New York and receives annual funding from the State of New York for certain educational missions. The Cornell University Ithaca Campus comprises 745 acres, but is much larger when the Cornell Botanic Gardens (more than 4,300 acres) and the numerous university-owned lands in New York City are considered.As of October 2018, 58 Nobel laureates, four Turing Award winners and one Fields Medalist have been affiliated with Cornell University. Since its founding, Cornell has been a co-educational, non-sectarian institution where admission has not been restricted by religion or race. Cornell counts more than 245,000 living alumni, and its former and present faculty and alumni include 34 Marshall Scholars, 30 Rhodes Scholars, 29 Truman Scholars, 7 Gates Scholars, and 14 living billionaires. The student body consists of more than 14,000 undergraduate and 8,000 graduate students from all 50 American states and 116 countries.
