China's Li vows reforms to help Yuan be World’s 5th Reserve Currency

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Monday asked the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to include the Chinese currency in the special drawing rights (SDR) basket, endorse the yuan as a global reserve currency alongside the dollar and euro.

Li met IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde in Beijing on Monday.

State news agency Xinhua quoted Li as saying “China will speed up the basic convertibility of yuan on the capital account and provide more facility for domestic individual cross-border investment and foreign institutional investment in China’s capital market”.

Including the yuan in the SDR system would allow the IMF to recognize the ascent of the world’s second-biggest economy while aiding China’s attempts to diminish the dollar’s dominance in global trade and finance.

When Will China End the Dollar Peg

The Last Year of American Hegemony

By JC Collins

One of the biggest questions which we need to consider as the world moves closer to the full implementation of the multilateral financial system is when will the RMB end its managed peg to the USD?  Now that the official request has been made to the International Monetary Fund, for the yuan to be included into the SDR basket composition, it is only a matter of time before the ending of the peg occurs.

Russia Plans Super Highway Linking U.K. to U.S.

Russia Plans Super Highway Linking U.K. to U.S.

The president of Russian railways has unveiled a plan for a new trans-Siberian motorway linking the east coast of Russia with the U.S.

The highway would create the first modern route from the eastern regions of the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean in the west.

The proposal, dubbed the Trans-Eurasian Belt Development (TEPR), would involve crossing the Bering Strait between the Chukotka region and Alaska’s Seward Peninsula - one of the most dangerous bodies of water in the world due to its shallow depth, volatile weather and freezing temperatures.

Vladimir Yakunin announced his plans for the new major roadway alongside the existing trans-Siberian rail route at a meeting of the Moscow-based Russian Academy of Science, according to local media.

“This is an inter-state, inter-civilization, project. It should be an alternative to the current model, which has caused a systemic crisis,” he said. “The project should be turned into a world 'future zone,' and it must be based on leading, not catching, technologies.”

The road would run across the whole of Russia, linking with current networks in Asia and western Europe, but the plans did not specify how the route would cross the sea. The shortest crossing between Russia and Alaska is approximately 55 miles.

Remote Viewing Cydonia, Mars

Project Release Date: 15 March 2015

According to remote-viewing data collected at The Farsight Institute, this documentary resolves the issue of the so-called “Face on Mars.” We now know that this anomaly was actually a city where Martians lived. They were more like us on Earth than most would imagine.

Combining two of the most skilled remote viewers on the planet currently, using U.S. military derived methodologies for perceiving across time and space, and working within a scientifically clean and totally blind experimental design, we now have new eyewitness reports that describe how Martians lived, and how they died. New results based on a bedrock of verifiable data tell the story that has been hidden from us for too long.

The science of remote viewing has matured to the extent that such a project as this is finally achievable. But no one could have expected the results to be as shocking as what was actually revealed by these new data. We need to study the Martians, especially if we wish to avoid their mistakes and become a civilization with a better destiny.
