Three years ago, the United Nations commissioned the world's top scientists to find out if global warming can be limited. This week, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published their report, saying that it is possible to limit global warming and prevent a climate catastrophe. The report is seen as the main scientific guide for government policymakers on how to implement the 2015 Paris Agreement, which aims to limit the rise in global average temperatures to "well below" 2 degrees Celcius above pre-industrial levels, while seeking to tighten the goal to 1.5C. "The report maps out how much worse it would be if we get to 1.5C, how much worse again if we get to 2C. Some of those numbers are striking," says Michael Grubb, professor of energy and climate change at University College London. "The report estimates that with 1.5C warming we'll lose something like 70-90 percent of the world's coral reefs. If it goes up to 2C, then we're talking about [losing] 99 percent. Those kind of statistics give you a sense of what we're dealing with, similar to the change of the Arctic ice." The IPCC says we can limit global warming and prevent a climate catastrophe - but there is a deadline. One which critics say is not technologically feasible or economically practicable. Meeting the 1.5C target will require a 45-percent cut in carbon emissions by 2030 and building a global net zero carbon emissions economy by 2050. If you're putting money into coal power stations or mines, you're taking a huge strategic risk on all fronts. Michael Grubb , professor of energy and climate change, University College London Melissa Price, the Australian environment minister, was quick to respond to the report, saying she's more focused on bringing down electricity prices than phasing out coal. Of all the different types of fossil fuel, coal produces the most carbon dioxide - and Australia is the world's biggest producer. "In terms of any investors listening, my first advice would be, if you're putting money into coal power stations or mines, you're taking a huge strategic risk on all fronts," says Grubb. "Whether it's local air pollution, global, the general pressures, coal is the first in the line of fire, and we've seen dramatic reductions in the UK, much of Europe, and even North America." As things stand, decarbonising the world's electricity system fast enough to meet the IPCC's targets would involve, at the very least, global consensus, a major paradigm shift, and trillions of dollars. "One of the big changes in the political dynamics in the last 10 years has been the Chinese position. They're emitting substantially more now than the United States. But what has really shifted the politics in China has been local air pollution," says Grubb. "What we see is a tremendous drive from the central government to try and close down old and inefficient coal power stations, put clamps on what had been a massive programme of coal power station construction." "Beijing has basically banned coal burning in its regions and is now set to ban petrol-driven cars because of the local air pollution. What I see is a big shift in terms of both its energy policy and its geopolitical positioning to say, 'Of course, China has to be part of the solution and we intend China to do well by being involved in the emerging clean technology businesses'." Also on this episode of Counting the Cost: Africa's cities: Africa's population of roughly 1.1 billion is expected to double by 2050, with more than 80 percent of that growth occurring in cities. The UN projects that 10 of the world's fastest-growing cities over the next 17 years will all be in Africa. Eight African cities are expected to more than double in population size in the next few years. The continent's top three fastest-growing cities are Dar es Salaam, Nairobi and Kinshasa. "On the good side, as these cities will get bigger, they'll have a more conglomeration of benefits that potentially can increase productivity that cities offer. We know that in Africa that families moving to big cities probably double their household incomes and job opportunities for all the people in the household. But the challenge is being able to manage that population growth and have livable cities," says Vernon Henderson of the London School of Economics.

Money and Madness (1998) - Penetrating the shady world of Colombia’s emerald dealers, we meet private armies and pistol-packing miners. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures Colombia boasts some gruesome statistics. The leading cause of death for individuals over the age of ten is violence. And it’s the struggles for power over smuggling narcotics and emeralds that control its jungle politics. Penetrating the emerald business, we meet Jose. With his bullet proof clothes and shiny gun he’s just an ordinary emerald dealer. Accompanying him on a buying trip we enter Victor Carranza’s notorious emerald zone. Outside his mine is a menacing collection of blackened miners. Their pockets bulge with stolen emeralds and loaded pistols. Stealing is part of the rules in Victor’s empire. His workers are simply supervised to ensure they don’t steal more than their labour deserves. In this feudal system favours are given by the powerful and loyalty is shown in return. The poor must be content to search through the scraps thrown out by the powerful. It’s a ruthless system, but as Jose puts it, “Where’s there’s money there is madness. It’s the same all round the world.” For more information, visit https://www.journeyman.tv/film/505 Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/journeymanpictures Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/JourneymanNews https://twitter.com/JourneymanVOD Follow us on Instagram: https://instagram.com/journeymanpictures ABC Australia - Ref. 0505

Where is the population in the world the smallest? What countries have the least people? It’s not the size that matters, and with countries, that is often the case. Some of the least populated countries in the world are also the wealthiest in terms of personal wealth and gross national product. And some of the larger nations have problems equally as huge to address. Some of these smaller countries are thinly populated because they are super-difficult to get to or sit in some of the world’s harshest regions. Some simply get by on one or two key industries and foreign aid. Some were used as strategic bases during war time. Some are playgrounds for the rich and famous. And one is reserved for holy activities. Today we take a closer look at the smallest of these nations, in this episode of the Infographics Show, The Ten Least Populated Countries in the World.

Professor Stantic says big data mining could also be used by health inspectors to track food poisoning cases, or emergency response teams to track the movement of people and their needs following a natural disaster. He says more and more companies are looking to big data analysis to gain a competitive edge over their competitors.

The Australian stocks market opened higher for a fourth straight day led by financial sector. The benchmark ASX 200 share index was up 0.36 per cent while the broader All Ordinaries increased 0.26 per cent in early trade. On Wednesday, investors will be watching the Australian Bureau of Statistics Consumer Price Index (CPI) for June quarter. Company News Macarthur Coal (ASX:MCC) reported record sales for the financial year ended 30 June 2010 of 5.32Mt, up 15.3 per cent from the 4.61Mt in the previous year. This was ahead of the guidance range of 4.8Mt - 5.0Mt. The company said the improvement on an annual basis can be attributed to improved economic conditions, a sell down of high opening coal stocks, increased production at both Coppabella and Moorvale sites, and the utilisation of excess infrastructure capacity through the Goonyella corridor. Sales in the June quarter were down 10.8 per cent on the prior corresponding period, as a result of an unusually strong quarter in 2009 due to a stock sell-off that was triggered by the global financial crisis. But the total coal sales of 1.3Mt in the June quarter was still stronger than expected. Lihir Gold Ltd (ASX:LGL) produced 244,000 ounces of gold in the three months to June, up 6 per cent from the March quarter. Production was in line with the plan for the year, and leaves Lihir on track to produce between 1.0-1.1 million ounces of gold in 2010. Gold sales totalled 269,000 ounces for the quarter, which was up 35 per cent compared with the three months to March. The increase was due to timing of sales and movements in inventory. Production for the first half at Lihir Island totalled 377,000 ounces, and the increasing quarterly production trend should continue into the second half, driven by higher grade from the pit. Full-year guidance for Lihir Island remains unchanged at 800,000 to 870,000 ounces. Downer EDI Limited (ASX:DOW) said its mining division has signed contracts with BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) to June 2015 for projects in Bowen Basin, Central Queensland. The contracts, jointly valued at approximately A$2 billion, are for load and haul of prestrip material and drill and blast services at Goonyella Riverside Mine, and for load and haul of prestrip material at Norwich Park Mine. Downer said it has ample funding capacity for the BMA contracts and also the Fortescue Metals Group (ASX:FMG) contract at Christmas Creek for which Downer is preferred bidder.

ABN Newswire - US stocks surged for the third consecutive session overnight, as investors flowed into the financial sector due to the upbeat comments from Bank of America's chief executive. General Motors also delivered good news to the market that it will not need $US2 billion loans it had requested from the US government to fund its operations in March. Yesterday, the Australian market ended marginally lower as investors were encouraged by the Wall Street rallies. The benchmark S&P/ASX200 index ended the day down 0.3%, or 8.9 points, at 3235.5. The broader All Ordinaries index was also down 0.3%, or 8.7 points, at 3190.4. "Many investors have feared worst, and many are probably predicting companies such as GM would eventually be gone, and are already prepared for it," says Thomas Su, Research Director of Money Cat Consulting. It may be too early to predict, but it seems the financial stocks may start leading the gain in the second half of the year, Thomas Su added. Key Economic Facts and Figures Australian Bureau of Statistics figures released yesterday showed the unemployment rate in Australia soared to 5.2% in February, its highest level in nearly four years. Economists anticipate the government will revise its previous unemployment forecasts at 5.5% by June and 7.0% in mid 2010. It is estimated that the unemployment rate will burst through 7% following the latest jobless numbers. The government is resisting requests to extend its increase in the first-home buyer's grant, raising fears of a housing slump once the scheme is terminated on June 30. M&A News Uranium Equities Ltd (ASX:UEQ) has secured funding to explore the Headwaters project in West Arnhem Land, as the Brazilian mining giant Companhia Vale de Rio Doce (NYSE:RIO) has agreed to acquire up to 80% of the project. Important Corporate News Nickel producer Western Areas (ASX:WSA) has signed a seven-year offtake agreement with BHP Billiton (ASX:BHP).

Connect with Real Vision™ Online: Linkedin: https://rvtv.io/2xbskqx Twitter: https://rvtv.io/2p5PrhJ Anthony Deden | Grant Williams | Real Vision™ https://www.youtube.com/c/RealVisionTelevision Transcript: For me, the best part of my Real Vision journey has been the chance to refine my own investment framework through a series of conversations with brilliant investors in every corner of the globe. In this series, I want to continue my education by digging deeper into the lives and careers of my guests to try and learn how they think. I want to understand the experiences that have shaped them, the failures they bounced back from, and the lessons that those failures have taught them. And I want to break down their success to find out what sets them apart. I'm not looking for trade ideas or guesses about an unknowable future, but rather knowledge, accumulated over the course of careers to try and make me a better investor. And I want to share those conversations with you. Several years ago, I was introduced to my guest today by mutual friends who'd entrusted a significant portion of their savings to. This man, they told me, invest in a way which is not only unlike the methods employed by 99% of money managers today, but also with an integrity and a methodology which is a throwback to a time which is sadly almost vanished. In the intervening period, as I've gotten to know my guest better, I spent a considerable amount of time trying to persuade him to sit down with me and share both his experience and his investment philosophy with the Real Vision audience. Sadly, each of my invitations has been met with a very polite, but very firm, no thank you. This was no surprise to me. My guest has never before been interviewed, either in writing or on camera, and for good reason. He's a private man who prefers to spend his time reading and thinking, who invests far from the spotlight, and with no care for either mainstream opinion or consensus strategies. A year ago, I finally got to meet my guest, and I spent an evening I will never forget listening to him talk about how he sees the world and how he thinks about the discipline of investing. That meeting made me more determined than ever to try and persuade him to break his silence and give others the chance to learn from him as I had done. Now, three years after I first approached him, he's very graciously agreed to talk to me in front of the Real Vision cameras. And so I'm excited to be traveling to the Swiss Alps to discover how his framework has evolved over the years and see how he looks at the process of investing that which he considers permanent, irreplaceable capital. So please join me for a conversation with Tony Deden. There are going to people that watch this who know you, and they're probably sitting there thinking, why the hell is Tony Deden doing it? And then they're going to people that don't know who, after this conversation, are going to go, why the hell do I not know Tony Deden? So I know this is the first time you've done one of these and I really appreciate the fact that you've agreed to do it, because there's so many things I want to talk to you about.

The world of investing/finance is divided into two camps. In one, you have the number-crunchers, who believe that the only things that matter are the numbers and that imagination/creativity are dangerous distractions. In the other, you have the storytellers, who build on the stories they tell about companies and how these stories will bring untold wealth. Each side believes it has a monopoly on the truth and looks with contempt at the other. Prof. Damodaran contends that stories matter, but only if they are connected with numbers. And numbers are empty, unless they are connected with narratives. In this talk, he looks at the process by which one might build narratives, check them against reality and convert them into valuations. Uber and Ferrari examples are used to illustrate the process.

Steve Johnson, CIO of Intelligent Investor Funds says that they are investing in the theme of US commercial property trusts, which are trading well below fair value and could be potential takeover targets. They "listed in the REIT bubble leading up to the GFC" and have "been left stranded here in Australia, no-one's interested in them. We own one called RNY Property Trust, it's a bunch of commercial property around Manhattan. These things trade at 8.5% Cap-rates. So you can borrow money in the US at 3% and you can buy yourself an office property that yields you 8% on an 80% occupancy rate. Now if the economy improves, employment improves, that occupancy goes up. We think there's a 20-30% improvement at a gross asset level and we're buying it at a massive discount to its NTA here in Australia." Johnson says this theme has a way to run as the US economy improves.

Oil is gaining ground in early morning trade as Asian and European shares rise on the back of strong economic data from China and Japan in particular. Beijing reported that Chinese exports rose to their highest level in six years in May, rising 48.5% from a year ago. Meanwhile, Japan's economy grew at an annualized 5% rate in the first quarter. Gold, on the other hand, is falling as investors' willingness to take on risks increased on renewed hopes for the global economy. In addition, the yellow metal came under selling pressure as the euro rose following comments by China's national pension fund chief Dai Xianglong who said that the European unit would weather the ongoing sovereign debt crisis. At 0755 ET, Brent crude is up 0.5% at $74.64 a barrel, while light sweet crude is up 0.7% at $74.83 a barrel, and natural gas is up 1.0% at $4.72 a million British thermal units. Gold is 0.3% weaker at $1,225.70 an ounce, while silver is down 0.9% at $18.04 an ounce, but copper is up 0.2% at $2.85 a pound. The International Energy Agency lifted its 2010 forecast for global oil demand, as it anticipates worldwide use to rise by 1.7 million barrels a day, or up 2% on year, to 86.4 million barrels. That marks a rise of 60,000 barrels from the agency's earlier estimate. Chinese oil import rose 29% during the first five months of the year compared to the same period a year ago to 95.7 million metric tons on strong demand for motor fuel and electricity, according to the General Administration of Customs. BP plc (BP) shares fell to a 13-year low in London trade as the company continues to face attack for its handling of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. In U.S. pre-market trade, the stock is gaining the bulk of the decline back as it bounces 11% higher. BP has estimated that the total cost of response efforts to the worst U.S. environmental disaster has reach over $1.4 billion to date. Australia's Kingsgate Consolidated Ltd (KCN) soared as the gold mining group was raised to outperform to sector perform by RBC Capital. The mining group was also granted tax concessions by the Thai government for a new processing plant at its flagship Chatree gold mine in the country. South Africa's Impala Platinum Holdings LTD (IMP) fell as did Anglo Platinum Ltd (AMS) as platinum prices continued to fall. The metal is a key component for clean emissions technology used by auto manufacturers.

Australian dollar jumps to six-week high, driven by retail sales and company profits: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-06-04/retail-sales-beat-expectations-australian-dollar-company-profit/9832714. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPLbW-HoiBuA8yepLypwA6g?sub_confirmation=1 Australian dollar jumps to six-week high, driven by retail sales and company profits By business reporter David Chau The Australian dollar jumped to a six-week high (76.3 US cents) thanks to some better-than-expected company profit and retail sales figures. Key points:Retail sales rose 0.4pc in April, driven by the hospitality industryCompany operating profits jumped 5.9pc in the March quarterThe Australian dollar jumped to a six-week high of 76.3 US cents The nation's retail turnover lifted 0.4 per cent to $26.6 billion in April (seasonally adjusted), against expectations of a 0.3pc increase.It was driven by cafes, restaurants and take-away (+1.3pc), according to the latest data from the Bureau of Statistics (ABS) — but was offset somewhat by lacklustre department store (-0.9pc), clothing, footwear and personal accessory sales (-0.8pc)."Some of this weakness could prove temporary as it may partly reflect shoppers delaying the purchasing of autumn clothes following the unusually hot weather in some capital cities in April," said Capital Economics' Kate Hickie.Company gross operating profits rose 5.9 per cent in the March quarter, boosted in particular by the mining sector, the ABS also revealed.In addition to being a key business indicator, this result is nearly double what the market had expected (+3pc).The local currency quickly climbed to 76.3 US cents (6:00pm AEST), which is a hefty 0.8 per cent gain throughout the day (up from 75.67 US cents).It also rose to 57.09 British pence (+0.8pc), 65.22 euro cents (+0.6pc) and 83.55 Japanese yen (+0.9pc).Non-mining states in the lead The GDP Myth GDP is used by governments to make big decisions and is the global economic benchmark, but is it any good? Expectations for retail sales weren't high, given the result was completely flat in the previous month (March), and was particularly weak during December (-0.5pc) and January (+0.1pc).One clear trend is that internet sales continue to go from strength to strength."Online retail turnover contributed 5.4 per cent to total retail turnover in original terms in April 2018, a rise from 5.1 per cent in March 2018," the ABS said in a statement."In April 2017 online retail turnover contributed 3.4 per cent to total retail."There seems to be a divide between mining and non-mining states, said NAB's chief market economist Ivan Colhoun.Retail turnover in the two largest states increased 0.4 per cent each.He also noted the big mining states, Queensland (+0.1pc) and Western Australia (flat) are "yet to see a significant pick up in retail sales".A boost in mining profits "Mining profits led the way (+11pc), as expected ... on the back of higher commodity prices and increased sales," said Westpac senior economist Andrew Hanlan. Why the RBA can't move Some economists see the Reserve Bank hiking interest rates before the end of the year. Ian Verrender reckons they're dreaming.

Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

They consist of Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario, although hydrologically, there are four lakes, Superior, Erie, Ontario, and Michigan-Huron. The lakes are interconnected by the Great Lakes Waterway. The Great Lakes are the largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth by total area, and second largest by total volume, containing 21% of the world's surface fresh water by volume. The total surface is 94,250 square miles (244,106 km2), and the total volume (measured at the low water datum) is 5,439 cubic miles (22,671 km3), slightly less than the volume of Lake Baikal (5,666 cu mi or 23,615 km3, 22–23% of the world's surface fresh water). Due to their sea-like characteristics (rolling waves, sustained winds, strong currents, great depths, and distant horizons) the five Great Lakes have also long been referred to as inland seas. Not counting Lake Michigan-Huron, Lake Superior is the second largest lake in the world by area, and the largest freshwater lake by area. Lake Michigan is the largest lake that is entirely within one country.The Great Lakes began to form at the end of the last glacial period around 14,000 years ago, as retreating ice sheets exposed the basins they had carved into the land which then filled with meltwater. The lakes have been a major source for transportation, migration, trade, and fishing, serving as a habitat to a large number of aquatic species in a region with much biodiversity. The surrounding region is called the Great Lakes region, which includes the Great Lakes Megalopolis.
