Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Hong Kong Occupy Central remains tense. Australian media suddenly disclosed H K Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying received secret payments of about HK $ 50 million during merger process of Australian real estate UGL merger one of the big five Australian real estate companies, DTZ. It received global media attention; but CCP media kept silent on it. The investigative reporter said it's like black stuff from heaven. Commentators say if the scandal is verified, Leung Chun-ying has to step down or go to prison.. In the past two weeks, nearly 200 thousand protesters took to the streets to protest against the controversial electoral reform proposal of the CCP National People's Congress (NPC). Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying came under the spotlight during this period. One of the main demands from the protesters is to get Leung Chun-ying to step down. October 8, Australian media Fairfax Media disclosed, Leung Chun-ying had accepted secret payments of about HK $ 50 million in signing with UGL in December 2011 to support the Asian business return from UGL and DTZ. This money was remitted to Leung Chun-ying in the previous year and last year separately when Leung Chun-ying has been the chief executive. But he did not declare the money to the Government. US Wall Street Journal and British Financial Times Chinese websites all reported Leung Chun-ying is facing scrutiny over huge payments. BBC Chinese websites reported it entitled "Hong Kong political parties request the ICAC investigate Leung Chun-ying's secret payments”. However, the CCP media remained silent on it with no report, no reponse and no excuse for Leung Chun-ying. Commentator Tang Jingyuan:"It's obviously not by chance that coverage of Leung Chun-ying's huge bribe was disclosed by international media at this highly sensitive period for Hong Kong. It might be a preemptive strike for Xi Jinping to take Leung Chun-ying down. So Jiang faction's Standing Committee member Liu Yunshan, in charge of propaganda, needed to block all negative coverage of Leung Chun-ying. " CCP mouthpieces including People's Daily, CCTV and Global Times successively attacked and slandered Occupy Central; intimidated demonstrators, and supported Leung Chun-ying from the start of Occupy Central's protest. It also came out that the CCP deputy head of the National Security Commission, who is also responsible for Hong Kong and Macau, affairs, Zhang Dejiang and for Leung Chun-ying‘s armed suppression was prevented by CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping. Commentator Tang Jingyuan said Zhang Dejiang, who is in the same camp as Liu Yunshan expected chaos in Hong Kong if orders for army suppression came from Xi Jinping. That would be a good opportunity for Jiang faction to seize power. Tang Jingyuan: "Hong Kong has actually become a gambling chip between Xi and Jiang's struggle because Leung Chun-ying is a mole controlled by Zeng Qinghong of the Jiang faction. As a front spokesperson for Jiang's faction in Hong Kong, Leung Chun-ying had to be agent provocateur against Occupy Central. So taking down Leung Chun-ying at least can win Xi Jinping enough time to take care of the political reform issue. " But former history Professor in Australia Li Yuanhua believes the attack on Occupy Central and blocks on reports of Leung Chun-ying scandal must be collusion between CCP Communist factions. Li Yuanhua:"In an authoritarian country, the CCP centralized all leaders and their experience is only of force and deception. They don't want to change the Chief Executive because of people's wish but in other forms. " Australia Sydney Morning Beijing correspondent John Garnaut, who disclosed Leung Chun-ying scandal said the black material is like manna from heaven. He believes that now any information that can blow-up Leung Chun-ying is highly newsworthy." China senior legal expert Zhao Yuanming: "they might be dissatisfied with Leung Chun-ying and Hong Kong issue to disclose such a shady deal at this moment. Leung Chun-ying himself is not a good guy to make a fuss over the Hong Kong issue; to provoke Xi and Li; to suppress Hong Kong people and the students' democratic demands and even to send a lot of underworld thugs to beat up Occupy Central people. " Zhao Yuanming analyzed Leung Chun-ying's scandal should be intentionally discharged by another faction in the way always used by all CCP factions, to disclose to overseas media. Once this bribery is verified,he can only step down or be imprisoned. 《神韵》2014世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Greater attention than ever is now being placed on promoting development across the rest of the continent. The China-initiated Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and “Belt & RoadInitiative (OBOR) have put their emphasis on strengthening physical infrastructure, a focus which may potentially complement or be in tension with approaches that stress poverty alleviation, improved governance institutions, and the nurturing of entrepreneurship and commercial markets. This event features a discussion among leading experts from China and North America about the scope of Asia's development challenge, the weighing of alternative solutions, and the possibilities for bilateral and multilateral cooperation.

China: World's Fastest Electric Car Unveiled

China: World's Fastest Electric Car Unveiled

The world's fastest electric car - which has a top speed of 155mph and manages 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds - has been unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show. The SP:01 is manufactured in America by a company called Detroit Electric, which claims to have produced the first ever electric car in Detroit back in 1907. Choosing China over Europe and the US to reveal its state-of-the-art machine is significant. The Chinese government has placed itself behind a major push to invest in electric cars across the nation. Albert Lam, the chief executive of Detroit Electric, told Sky News: "I think China has the right policy, right incentive, and the right drive from the government and China really does need some solution with their air pollution. "There will be a lot of demand for this type of vehicle as well as future vehicles we are going to launch." The government's pledge to put five million electric vehicles on China's roads by 2020 has prompted a scramble by car manufactures in all sectors of the market. From Porsche to VW and Renault, manufacturers are now choosing China to unveil their latest electric or hybrid models. The Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid has been a focus for photographers and prospective customers in Shanghai all week. It has a dual-electric petrol engine; the first Porsche of its kind. In another exhibition hall, the company formally known as Rover showed off its electric offering. Rover is now owned by Chinese Auto giant SAIC. In theory, China is the perfect market for the electric car to thrive. Sixteen of the 20 most polluted cities in the world are said to be in China. This year, the air in the Chinese capital reached 40 times the safe limit. The sheer number of cars and the poor quality of fuel are significant contributors to what has become known as 'airmageddon'. The global electric car revolution has, thus far, failed to materialise. A combination of 'range-anxiety', high prices and unappealing models has discouraged the public to buy. Unimpressed by poor sales, governments have been reluctant to invest in infrastruture. A vicious cycle has formed which has been hard to break. But China could hold the key. In a suburb of the Chinese capital we found evidence of the government pledge to support the development of electric cars for the mass market. The Beijing Electric Car Company is a part-state owned car manufacturer. Their site is vast; a massive factory surrounded by car parks full of new cars, all electric. The E150-EV is the first mass-produced Chinese-made electric car. None have been sold yet because the details of the rebate customers will get for buying one have not yet been established. "At this stage, we're still in a test period," Si Hai, a director at the factory, told Sky News. "The Beijing government has been positively encouraging the industry including research. The good trend of the development is thanks to efforts by the government." There are about 1,000 electric cars running on the Beijing roads but they are public service vehicles. Several major Chinese cities operate a "licence plate lottery" in which prospective new drivers must apply for a number-plate. Only a tiny proportion of those who apply every month are successful. Under new plans, drivers applying for a number-plate for an electric car will not have to go through the lottery. They will be issued with a plate immediately. "The development of electric cars will not happen without the support of the government. I think the country has been working on the research and implementing the relevant policies. I think in the near future, our goal of getting electric cars to every household can be achieved," Mr Si said. If he is right, then simple economies of scale should push prices down and encourage further research and development. The global electric car revolution could finally get the kick-start it has waited for. JOIN VSP GROUP PARTNER PROGRAM: https://youpartnerwsp.com/ru/join?90063
