By resource is meant any physical entity, which has limited availability. These resources occur in their natural form. Few examples of natural resources are: •Air, wind and atmosphere •Plants (Flora) •Animals (Fauna) •Agronomy (the science of using plants for food, fuel, feed and fiber) •Wildlife •Forestry and Agroforestry •Coal and fossil fuels •Range and pasture •Soils •Water, oceans, lakes and rivers Something that people generally arent aware of, is that everything we use in everyday life are derived from natural resources, for example, milk which comes from cows - animals are a natural resource. We use water, food and vegetables that comes from plants, salt which is a mineral are some of the other natural resources. Wood that we get from tree is a natural resource. It can be used to build a house, make paper, burn in fireplaces and in stoves for cooking, etc. Man utilizes these resources in various ways. These resources are processed further so as to be made suitable for our needs. The table below is an example that shows in what way the resources have been utilized.

2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Jim Garrow claims he was told by a top military veteran that the Obama administration's "litmus test" for new military leaders is whether or not they will obey an order to fire on U.S. citizens. Garrow added his source was "one of America's foremost military heroes," whose goal in divulging the information was to "sound the alarm." I'm guessing this was David Petraeus (the title of "military hero" would be questionable, but hey, that title's gone somewhat cheap, since the times of Patton and MacArthur), but only Garrow and a couple of other people can confirm or disconfirm that. Garrow was nominated three years ago for the Nobel Peace Prize and is the founder of The Pink Pagoda Girls, an organization dedicated to rescuing baby girls from "gendercide" in China. Garrow has been personally involved in "helping rescue more than 36,000 Chinese baby girls from death." He is a public figure, not an anonymous voice on the Internet, which makes his claim all the more disturbing. «I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new "litmus test" in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders... The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not. Those who will not are being removed», Garrow wrote on his Facebook page. Garrow adds that the Chinese government is playing an important part in all this, since, being the major creditor to a bankrupted US, it expects to take over most US natural resources in the near future; the Chinese expect there will be some open, popular resistance to this sort of move. So, and according to Garrow, they are demanding the US government to guarantee a neo-colonial security apparatus, by disarming its citizens and creating the general conditions for a "state of emergency", military clampdown on the people, if ever the "need" for one arises. While these scenarios are obviously on the cards, for anyone who watches these things, don't take rushed conclusions; it's not as if the Chinese will land troops in LA and Seattle tomorrow. And it's not as if the US military will be your enemies; though it would be much less wise to believe they will, as an institution, be your friends and keepers. The appropriate measures the US should take right now, is to move in the direction of reindustrialization, mass production, high levels of economic activity, as the REAL way to balance the debt and return to the prosperity-creation model that made it great in the first place, an example for the world to follow. If you do that, you won't have to worry about Chinese troops, Red Dawn nukes, or US Army military coups. Demand real change and go for it. http://www.infowars.com/nobel-peace-prize-nominee-obama-asks-military-leaders-if-they-will-fire-on-us-citizens/

Subscribe and visit our web-page: http://www.us-television.tv/ ! Following a successful democratic political election in November 2015, Myanmar is busy preparing itself to make the political, economic, social and legal changes that will continue to ensure the sustainable development of its economy. Foreign participation has grown to unprecedented levels as international companies compete for investment opportunities in one of the newest and most promising economies of Asia. Introduction. Myanmar, also popularly known as Burma, has historical roots that stretch back into antiquity. Situated in South East Asia, at an intersection between India and China, it is a largely rural, thickly forested country. Famous for its Buddhist pagodas, it has become a place of pilgrimage for worshippers and tourists alike. On 8 November 2015, Myanmar held landmark elections to replace the civilian Government formed by the Military in 2011. The National League for Democracy (NLD), led by Aung San Suu Kyi, enjoyed a landslide success winning just under 80% of the seats in the upper and lower houses of parliament. As a consequence of its large majority, the NLD will be in a position to lead political and social reforms and also dominate the process for the election of a new President. An NLD Government demonstrates the progress that democracy has made in Myanmar since it opened its doors to the international community in 2011. The success of the national vote, which has seen the people of Myanmar choose their first democratically elected Government since the early 1960s, serves to further strengthen improving international political relations. Future political and legal reform is expected to continue its support for the growing influx of foreign investment into the country, which has seen a huge increase from US$329.6 million in 2009/2010 to US$8.1 billion in 2014/2015. But what really makes Myanmar such an attractive place to invest in? With a population estimated at 53.7 million in 2014, Myanmar has significant untapped agricultural potential and a rich endowment of natural resources in the form of oil, gas, minerals and a variety of precious gemstones. Myanmar is ideally situated to take advantage of the large export markets of India and China. It is also a member and was the chair country in 2014 of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) trading bloc. ASEAN includes some of the fastest growing economies in the World. Agriculture. The cornerstone of the Myanmar economy is agriculture. It contributes between 30 to 40% of the gross domestic product. Up to 70% of the 32.5 million national workforce is engaged in agricultural activity or depends upon agriculture for their income. Furthermore, agricultural products generate roughly 25 to 30% of export earnings. Myanmar’s diverse topography, climates, water resources and ecosystems offer farmers and investors the opportunity to produce a wide range of crops, livestock, poultry and fish. Rice is currently the most important agricultural commodity and the majority of production is centred upon the Irrawaddy river delta. Paddy rice feeds the country and also represents the main export crop. Sugar cane, cotton and pulses are other important contributors to the success of the agricultural sector. The production and processing of these commodities was until recently controlled by state owned organisations. However, in an effort to develop foreign participation and increase local production, these industries have been liberalised. The government now has high hopes that foreign investment will increase in the agriculture sector. Although the Government provides valuable capital for agricultural production, foreign investment is also crucial to make up for capital shortfalls and to help farmers avoid alternative capital funding that can carry extremely high interest rates. Despite the importance of the agricultural sector to Myanmar, it has not historically attracted high levels of foreign investment. This situation is slowly changing, but the need for international investors to upgrade infrastructure and research and development is high.

The research underpinning this talk draws upon Verdini’s new book Winning Together: The Natural Resource Negotiation Playbook (https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/winning-together), winner of Harvard Law School’s Raiffa Award for best research of the year in negotiation, mediation, decision-making, and dispute resolution. In this talk, Bruno Verdini outlines an approach by which government, private sector, and nongovernmental stakeholders can overcome grievances, break the status quo, trade across differences, and create mutual gains in high-stakes transboundary water, energy, and environmental negotiations. Drawing on his extensive interviews with more than seventy high-ranking negotiators in the United States and Mexico—from presidents and ambassadors to general managers, technical experts, and nongovernmental advocates—and building upon theoretical and empirical findings, Verdini offers advice for practitioners on effective negotiation and dispute resolution strategies that avoid the presumption that there are not enough resources to go around and that one side must win while the other must inevitably lose. Followed by a Q&A with MITEI Communications Director, Emily Dahl. This talk was presented on April 10, 2018. 3 questions with Verdini: http://energy.mit.edu/news/3q-winning-together-in-natural-resources-negotiation-and-leadership/ Listen to this talk as a podcast: Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/u-s-mexico-natural-resource-management-partnerships/id1348837449?i=1000408863643&mt=2 Google Play: https://play.google.com/music/m/D2cpf7hltqo5ht62dnudzdfl5qm?t=US_-_Mexico_natural_resource_management_partnerships_Tearing_down_walls-MIT_Energy_Initiative SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/mitenergy/us-mexico-natural-resource-management-partnerships-tearing-down-walls More options: http://energy.mit.edu/podcast About the speaker: Bruno Verdini is executive director of the MIT-Harvard Mexico Negotiation Program and a lecturer in urban planning and negotiation at MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning.

Col. Ralph Peters explains why Balochistan needs to be separated from Pakistan's illegal occupation and how it would solve many problems emanating from Pakistan to the region and the world. Balochistan has vast natural resources but it is the poorest province of Pakistan largely because of mineral loot by the Punjabi elite and Punjabi-dominated Pakistan Army. Pakistan Army has indulged in thousands of illegal extra-judicial executions and gross human rights violation in Balochistan.
