It’s also the hometown of host Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida. Hiroshima can…

CNN: Carter to Visit Site Near Archipelago Claimed by China
mikenova shared this story from Voice of America.

During an upcoming trip to Asia, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter will visit sites in the Philippines where the U.S. plans to station troops, including one base close to the disputed South China Sea. CNN reported Saturday that the secretary would visit the base about 160 kilometers (about 100 miles) from the Spratly Islands archipelago, which China claims. But Carter will not visit the key player in the dispute, China. He had accepted an invitation to visit Beijing after he met with the countrys defense minister last year. But when the Pentagon released details about the trip Friday, China was not included. Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said a complicated schedule did not allow for it [a stop in China] to take place during this trip.” Carter will also travel to India next week, followed by Middle East stops in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. China claims almost the entire South China Sea, believed to have huge deposits of oil and gas. Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam also have claims to parts of the waters, through which about $5 trillion in trade is shipped every year. Beijing’s more assertive pursuit of its claims over the past year or so has included land reclamation and the construction of air and port facilities on some isles and reefs. In a speech Friday, Carter said countries in the Asia-Pacific region have been voicing concern about China’s military actions, which he said “stand out in size and scope.” He said those countries had expressed their concerns to the United States both publicly and privately, and at the highest levels. He said that although the United States has disagreements with China, Washington is committed to working through them in ways that do not destabilize the region. The secretary called the Asia-Pacific region “the single most consequential region for America’s future.”

Indian Temple Fire Kills 100
mikenova shared this story from Voice of America.

India’s prime minister is traveling to Kerala state where the death toll from a massive temple fire has risen to more than100 people.  The death toll is expected to rise.Narendra Modi said Sunday on his Twitter account the fire in Kollam is “heart-rending and shocking beyond words.” Authorities say at least 200 people were injured Sunday in the blaze at the Puttingal Devi temple complex, which was filled with people at time. The fire was ignited during a festive fireworks display that a huge crowd of people had gathered to watch in the early morning hours. Officials say temple organizers did not have permission for the display.   Authorities say a spark landed among a large amount of fireworks stored in the temple complex, causing explosions and a massive fire.

Residents of Isolated Villages Some of Freest People in Russia, Sociologist Says
mikenova shared this story from Window on Eurasia — New Series.

Paul Goble

Staunton, April 10 The absence of roads and the collapse of civil aviation in many rural areas of Russia has created a new class of absolutely free people, Artemy Pozanenko says, village residents who deal with their own problems without any intervention by teachers, policemen, doctors, or government officials.

Pozanenko, a sociologist at the Moscow Higher School of Economics, says that some relatively large Russian cities like Norilsk are cut off from the rest of the country but that he is talking not about them but about villages whose residents find it difficult if not impossible to go to district centers most of the year (zapovednik.space/material/Oni-absolutno-svobodny).

In some parts of Russia, people living in such special isolation form a large proportion of the population.  In one district of Arkhangelsk oblast, for example, 40 percent of the population lives that way. Even in places not far from Moscow, there are villages that are cut off from larger population and political centers.

This is a relatively new development, Pozanenko says. In Soviet times, the state sought to intervene and control all aspects of life, by combining rural settlements into larger ones that were easier to control, by establishing heavily subsidized air fares to allow interaction, and by ensuring that officials from rayon and oblast centers visited regularly.

But over the last two decades, all of these innovations have collapsed: with people returning to a natural economy, with air fares now far more expensive than before, and with most officials not inclined to both travelling to these villages to try to ensure that Moscows rules are enforced.

The more isolated the villages are, the sociologist says, the less people in them rely on anyone but themselves many are fishermen or hunters — the more they cooperate with each other against outsiders and nature in order to survive, and the slower their numbers decline, the Moscow sociologist says.

The main enemies of these isolated villagers, Pozanenko continues, are government control agencies like the police, sanitation officials, and government agencies charged with restricting hunting and fishing.  Many villagers are obviously in violation of the law, but with rare exceptions, officials dont show up in these villages to enforce the rules.

Generally, he says, the authorities do not help and they do not interfere they do not give anything, but at the same time, they dont check constantly. What emerges as a result is a kind of anarcho-communism. [Residents of such villages] life practically like one family and highly value their relationships.

Such people have a sense of absolute freedom, the opportunity to exploit resources as they want, to live the way they want, and to maintain communal relations which they do not want to lose.

According to Pozanenko, there is only one government institution on which they are absolutely dependent, the school. If it is closed and the government has been closing many small schools in recent years then the villages  begin to die because young people have little choice but to leave.

But adult residents do not feel similarly compelled. Instead, many of them highly value their isolation and oppose ending it. Recently, for example, the Murmansk governor offered to build a road to one such village, and the villagers voted overwhelmingly against that project. Theyve become accustomed to isolation, they see its advantages, and they want to preserve it.

Obviously, there are problems for the health care of such people, but funding for hospitals even in district centers is now so low that they do not lose much. The police seldom come, but there is little crime as everyone knows everyone else and the possibility of getting away with anything is small.

But despite their physical isolation, the villagers are tied into the wider world: television is everywhere, although not every village has a mobile telephone network, although most have at least some telephone connections.  And social pathologies like alcoholism are less noticeable than in better connected towns and cities.

Kerry, in Japan for G-7 Meeting, to Focus on Global Security Threats
mikenova shared this story from Voice of America.

Global security threats are among the focal points for U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and other Group of Seven (G-7) foreign ministers who have launched a two-day meeting in Hiroshima, Japan. Kerry arrived in Hiroshima Sunday following a visit to Afghanistan. He is the first U.S. secretary of state to visit Hiroshima, which was devastated by a U.S. atomic bomb near the end of World War Two. In an interview with the Hiroshima newspaper Chugoku Shimbun, Kerry said most global threats to international peace require collective action. Gatherings, such as this one are important opportunities to help us address urgent international political and security concerns and to speak with one, clear voice on concrete actions needed, said Kerry. G-7 meeting The Group of Seven industrialized countries also includes Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan. Some of the European members are grappling with security challenges in the aftermath of recent terrorist attacks in Brussels and Paris. In addition to terrorism, the group is expected to discuss maritime security in the South China Sea and the refugee crisis affecting Europe and the Middle East. On the sidelines of talks, Kerry and other foreign ministers will visit Peace Memorial Park, a World War Two memorial. The U.S. dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, which led to the end of the war. The bombing resulted in the deaths of about 140,000 people. Three days later, the U.S. dropped a second bomb on the port city of Nagasaki, killing about 70,000 people. Kerrys intention for visiting the memorial is to recognize the huge loss of life that occurred during the war, said State Department spokesman Mark Toner. It is also an acknowledgement that since the end of World War Two that the United States and Japan have become the closest of friends and strong allies, Toner added. The park has become a symbol of nuclear disarmament. Being in this city, it will help us carry out a message of peace and disarmament in the world,” Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni said. Kerrys visit to the country is also designed to clear the way for President Barack Obamas May visit to Japan to attend the G-7 leaders summit. Kerry traveled to Hiroshima from Kabul, where he discussed issues including regional security and the status of efforts to hold peace talks with the Taliban. Kerry met with President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah. U.S. officials say several rounds of explosions erupted nearly 200 meters from the U.S. embassy in Kabul shortly after Kerry departed. There were no injuries and no immediate indication that Kerry was a target. Kerry is on a weeklong tour of the Middle East and Asia that also included stops in Bahrain and Iraq. After Japan, he will attend a trade event in California before returning to Washington.
