Rogue state North Korea is threatening to shut down an industrial development inside its borders which is also used by South Korea.
The Kaesong factory complex is the last major symbol of inter-Korean co-operation.
But a spokesman for North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s office controlling the complex said today it would close the factory park just across the border in North Korea if Seoul continued to undermine its dignity.
DNA tests ruled out lamb, beef, chicken, pork, goat, horse – and even human flesh – leaving the grim possibility it could be dog or cat
It was on the takeway menu as a lamb curry – but it baffled food experts who later examined it.
They were surprised when they found the meaty chunks in the spicy sauce did not contain a single trace of lamb.

DYSON: When we see these kind of conflagrations, we’re able to point the finger and say, ‘Oh, how horrible it is’ — but we’re horrible, too, because we’ve quietly fueled and fomented the kind of unnecessary hostility towards Muslims that we ought to take a mirror at and look at ourselves.

Sick of all the prank calls and snickering tourists, the village of F—ing in upper Austria has decided to change its name. But another village that made the same name change almost 200 years ago is having none of it.

From ‘sufficiency of the firewall’ to the ‘absurdity of Spain needing a bailout’, it beggars belief that these humans can look at themselves in the mirror every morning (as they feel the ‘need’ to lie’ – or are simply ignorant of the reality).
European Sovereign Yields have been under pressure for most of [...]

A headline caught my eye last week, beyond all the ink spent on European debt woes. It read, “Hungry China Shops in Argentina.” China already buys most of Argentina’s soybean exports. And now China’s largest farming company is trying to lock down acreage for more soybeans. It also unveiled a plan to grow wheat, corn, vegetables, fruit and even wine – all [...]

While we don’t necessarily agree with the argument that Chinese monetary policy is the “single most protectionist policy in the world” as China is merely holding up a mirror to the Fed’s own monetary tools, it does provide some entertaining perspectives. On the other hand, the observation that China takes 6,000 jobs for every billion dollars in incremental trade deficit, is spot on.
