Reuters While the decision in the South China Sea Arbitration is final and binding there are no clear mechanisms for its implementation. Any resolution of the conflict will come down to diplomacy and negotiation, writes Donald Rothwell. The Tribunal accepted 14 of the 15 claims made by the Philippines in a unanimous award that will set the benchmark for the future resolution of all remaining South China Sea maritime disputes and have implications for all of Southeast Asia. The case was commenced by the Philippines in following a flare up between the two countries over the Scarborough Shoal, and what the Philippines perceived as a lack of progress in diplomatic talks to try to resolve their many maritime differences. In bringing the claim the Philippines also sought to directly challenge China’s assertion of its so-called “Nine Dash Line”, which is a line that appears on Chinese maps of the South China Sea that encircles much of the region and overlaps areas of the sea claimed by the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. The Tribunal found Chinese activities had caused irreparable harm to the coral reef ecosystem and breached obligations under six provisions of the Convention. The Philippines also sought to directly challenge Chinese assertion of sovereign rights over the South China Sea based upon claims over very small islands, islets, reefs and shoals, especially those located in the Spratly Islands group. Finally, the Philippines also challenged China’s land reclamation and island building activities throughout the region on the grounds that China had no legitimate basis to undertake those activities which the Philippines argued was causing significant environmental impact. In considering the “Nine Dash Line” the Tribunal had to first assess a Chinese Declaration indicating that it did not accept any of the procedures for dispute resolution under the Convention with respect to “historic bays or titles”.

King of the kitchen and always there to greet you when we come in. I’m not quite sure how this ritual between the missus and BB started but it is a given that BB must be dressed in a smart looking plastic bags when the wife gets home with groceries. Often times it is multiple bags and his level of pride increases with the number of bags.

He then proudly struts around making a point of showing off to the other cats followed by sitting around with this very smug look on his face while I tell him he looks the fool. BB and the missus have a bound that was forged when she was going through chemo and they spent great amount of time together. I do believe I’m second fiddle in the household. I’m quite attached myself. The cat has about the nicest demeanor of any pet we have had.

He’s a damn happy cat, always up for a game of chase or just general silliness and will take great abuse as long as you are paying attention to him. Even took to leash walking the first time we put one on and will now whine with the cutest gentlest little meow to go out if he sees a collar or leash.

Most dates in the inscriptions are given as Chinese cyclical dates which are repeated every 60th years. Without a reference to the reigning emperor, it is possible to by mistake move the piece 60 years back or forward in time. The modernization of China by scholars, teachers and students alike started in late Guangxu period, around , along with Dr Sun’s revolution. As of January 1, the Gregorian calendar was adopted by the nascent Republic of China for official business.

The status of the Gregorian calendar between about and while China was controlled by several competing warlords is uncertain. From about until warlords continued to control northern China. Kuomintang who controlled the south of China, probably used the Gregorian calendar. The 10th of October the Kuomintang declared a reconstituted Republic of China and also decreed that as of 1th January everyone must use the Gregorian calendar.

The earliest example I have so far on the practice of dating porcelain after the Gregorian calendar is from April that very same year, , in very small characters. During the Kuomintang period dates also occurs as numbered years of their Republic, from , regarding this as year one. A date as the 29th year of the Republic as in mark should thus indicate plus 29 years, or When the Communists gained control of mainland China the 1st of October , they simply continued using the Gregorian calendar, but now numbered the years in the Western manner, beginning with Export porcelain 19th century During the 18th to 19th century Chinese market porcelain was rarely dated.

Alberta, Canada Stay away from Westbury kits I told you that already. Your biggest roadblock is that you are limiting your search to the local market, and without making a drive to a bigger market like Ottawa, you’re not going to find a compelling deal unless you wait a long time. I don’t consider Exports to be intermediate drums, they’re beginner drums. I personally group drums into 4 categories: I already posted previously how you can spot those kits from a mile away.

They all have the exact same double-hole bass tom mount with cheap Pearl’ish elbow mounted tom arms.

The casualty-conscious British were better prepared on D-Day than the U. As the high explosive supporting fires shifted inland when the troops landed in unarmored craft, nothing filled this void to deter enemy aimed fire and thousands of men were cut to pieces–except in a small area of “Dog” sector where an accidental grassfire created a smokescreen, and the troops landing there were remarkably unhurt.

Several hundred yards of bluff west of les Moulins draw were obscured in heavy smoke from grass fires, apparently started by naval shells or rockets. Blanketed by this smoke, enemy guns and emplacements were unable to deliver effective fire on that end of Dog Beach, and units landing there were comparatively unscathed.

Canada , Canadian History , Culture Inuit plural: There has been a remarkable homogeneity in the culture throughout these areas, which have traditionally relied on fish, marine mammals, and land animals for food, pets, transport, heat, light, clothing, tools, and shelter. The Inuit language is grouped under Eskimo-Aleut languages.

Inuit and Aleut are considered separate from other Native Americans. Prior to the arrival of Europeans, and even after their arrival since their homeland was so inhospitable, Inuit lived a traditional semi-nomadic lifestyle of subsistence hunting and fishing, with the extended family as the unit of society, their own form of laws passed on through oral tradition, and a spiritual belief system of rituals that were integrated into the daily life of the people.

In the twentieth century, particularly in Canada, Christianity was imposed upon them together with a system of law that they did not understand, in an effort to assimilate them into the dominant Western culture. While their shamans are now gone, and they live in modern houses, much of what defines the Inuit has been preserved.

Not until this year did the USA and Britain become allies, which is why so many land based forts were built in Bermuda in the 19th century, primarily to defend against not European but American aggression. They and their powerful, long range, hill-top coastline cannons discouraged an enemy from seizing Bermuda. All the forts in the Western Parishes were designed to help protect the Dockyard.

Since its launch more than two decades ago, Pearl’s Export kit has been the one kit even non-drummers have heard of. The words ‘Pearl Export’ have entered the modern lexicon for good reason – year in, year out, the Export outsells every other kit on the planet.

Poplar choice The EXR is available in three shellpacks: The third option, a funky sounding combination known intriguingly as 20 Rock, is comprised of a 20″x16″ bass drum with the 14″x5″ snare, plus the 10″ and 12″ toms and a 14″ floor tom. Across the entire Export range, a fundamental change in manufacturing has occurred.

The shells, long made from mahogany, are now formed entirely from poplar. Pearl is making more and more Export kits every year and while poplar is sustainable indefinitely, mahogany isn’t.
