Hong Kong saw the formation of a new “political party,” headed by 19 year-old student Joshua Wong – a young man with no experience and no explanation as to who is funding him or backing him politically. The party, called “Demosisto,” was described by the BBC in their article, “Hong Kong student leader Joshua Wong forms political party,” as demanding …

What is the Five Elemental Energies?
The Five Elemental Energies (wu sing) represent the tangible activities of yin and yang as manifested in the cyclic changes of nature which regulate life on earth. Also known as the Five Movements (wu yun), they define the various stages of transformation in the recurring natural cycles of seasonal change, growth and decay, shifting climatic conditions, sounds, flavors, emotions, and human physiology. Each energy is associated with the natural element which most closely resembles its function and character, and from these elements they take their names. Unlike the Western and other systems of five elements, the Chinese system focuses on energy and its transformations, not on form and substance. The elements thus symbolize the activities of the energies with which they are associated.
In China, stocks crashed on day one of 2016. No one really knows why. Some hardy souls blamed the manufacturing index that came in even lousier than in November. But manufacturing has been consistently lousy, and bad numbers are nothing new and not a reason for the sudden plunge in stocks. Whatever the reasons, the Shanghai Composite plunged 6.9%, the …
Many high-powered people and institutions say that deflation is threatening much of the world’s economy … China may export deflation to the rest of the world. Japan is mired in deflation. Economists are afraid that deflation will hit Hong Kong. The Telegraph reported last week: Read More
So the slide continues with no end in sight. As expected this morning, the oil price has fallen below $28 a barrel on the back of the historic news over the weekend of sanctions being lifted on Iran. This is the lowest level for oil since 2003. The markets are spooked that the lifting of sanctions means the imminent …
Jack Rasmus continues analysis of China’s unwinding stock bubble and explains how it is connected to China currency devaluation, slowing real economy, and currency speculators in Hong Kong markets. How currency devaluation exacerbates stock decline and vice versa and how real economic slowing in China, now no more than 5% GDP annual growth, interacts with the other forces. China’s revolving bubbles, from property markets to entrusted loans and WMPS, to stock markets is explained. China’s $1trillion capital flight in 2015 and government policy makers spending of $500 billion to prop up stocks and currencies. How China’s massive credit-debt and liquidity buildup since 2009 is behind it all. And behind that the rise of shadow banks and the new global finance capital elite. Jack concludes with exploration of possible contagion effects from China’s continuing bubble unwind—on US corporate profits, stock investor contagion, on emerging market economies, and the parallel bubble deflation in global oil prices that continues. Jack concludes the global economy is moving faster now toward another financial crisis and global recession, which will be precipitated, he predicts, by China and then centered in emerging market economies. US and other advanced economies are far less prepared or able to contain the next crisis. (For deeper analysis, see Jack’s chapter 6 on China in his new book, ‘Systemic Fragility in the Global Economy’, January 2016, available from his blog at jackrasmus.com and on Amazon.)
The term ginseng refers to a family of plants belonging to the group Panax, the roots of which have been used in traditional healing for millennia. While ginseng has been cultivated in East Asian countries, including China, Korea, Vietnam, and Bhutan, the ginseng that is arguably the most prized grows wild in North America, specifically in Wisconsin and Canada. Siberian ginseng …
In 1979, a secret memo from the tobacco industry was revealed to the public. Called the Smoking and Health Proposal, and written a decade earlier by the Brown & Williamson tobacco company, it revealed many of the tactics employed by big tobacco to counter “anti-cigarette forces”. In one of the paper’s most revealing sections, it looks at how to market …

David Ison: For decades, David Ison has worked to help push music and meditation into the realm of healing. This week’s excerpt comes from David’s audio program Chakra Illumination. As a classically trained musician, Sounds True producer Steve Lessard appreciated working with Ison on a program that intends to unlock the healing and transformative powers of music. Our chakras—each of which represent a rung on what Ison calls the “ladder of consciousness”—resonate with particular frequencies. Ison describes how music that resonates with the key signatures of each chakra can open these energy centers, revealing the “essences” that lie veiled beneath many layers of emotion, trauma, and attachment. Discover the wisdom hidden inside your energy anatomy through the resonant power of music.
Dr. Mao Shing Ni: Westerners who first encounter the concept of qi often regard it as something extraordinary, even supernatural—an energy available only to masters of spirituality or martial arts. Yet much of Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an understanding of this vital life force as it operates in each and every one of us. When Sounds True producer Stephen Lessard recorded the audio program Qi Meditations, he was impressed by the way Dr. Mao Shing Ni was able to demystify qi and explain it in clear, simple language. In this selection, Dr. Mao explores the nature of qi, how it manifests as the yin and the yang, and how these energies are reflected in our bodies and our world.
