It’s a given, the USA could obliterate North Korea, however, as Steve Bannon, Trump’s outgoing advisor said, ‘…there are no military options.”

The consequences of war would be unimaginably horrific for both sides of the 38th parallel. The millions of casualties and wholesale destruction of cities like Seoul and Pyongyang could never be justified.

So how does this end?

Or do we simply learn to live with a nuclear-armed and missile-capable North Korea?

Successive US presidents have promised that would never happen, and yet it might already be a reality. Kim Jong-un seems to be betting his regime on the hope his newly developed firepower will offer a guarantee of protection, rather than an invitation to disaster :: Read the full article »»»»

The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been reportedly assassinated in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. Malaysian police said Kim Jong-nam collapsed suddenly at Kuala Lumpur International Airport – KLIA – he died en-route to hospital.

Police official Fadzil Ahmat said the cause of death was not yet known, and a post-mortem would be carried out on the body.

According to the official, Kim Jong-nam had been planning to travel to Macau on Monday when he fell ill at the airport’s low-cost terminal. “He felt dizzy, so he asked for help at the counter of KLIA.”

Lamborghini Urus Concept

It’s been five years since Lamborghini first unveiled their Hybrid SUV concept – Urus – at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show. Since then it’s been waning between remaining a viable but ultimately unrealised vision – like the mythical Estoque super saloon – or a full-fledged addition to the Lambo stable.

In 2013 more hints that the Italian super-car maker was serious about the Urus came from then Chief Executive Stephan Winkelmann who said the company’s future plans were very much in-line with a high-performance SUV in its offer.

Via an interview with Digital Trends, Lamborghini’s current CEO Stefano Domenicali has confirmed that production of the überSUV will begin in April 2017, with prototype test vehicles rolling off the line first. Production of customer-bound examples be underway by July 2017 :: Read the full article »»»»

Report Into Australian Bank Practice Finds Lenders UnfairI’ve banked with a small bank – Bendigo Bank – since my return to Melbourne 8 years ago. Australia’s big banks have plenty of critics, and now they can add the Small Business Ombudsman to that fast growing list.

The high profile Ombudsman, Kate Carnell, who has authored a report released today into banking practices, has found lenders are not being fair when they enter into contracts with small and medium-sized businesses.

The big four banks enjoy a $19 billion advantage over their smaller rivals by still being able to self-calculate the riskiness of their home loans according to analysis from the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority.

Despite a new regulatory framework requiring the big banks to hold larger top tier capital buffers, their ability to internally assess their asset risks is still a huge advantage in terms of the amount of “expensive” capital locked up and their ability to access cheaper funding.

While the CBA, NAB, Westpac and ANZ are now required to base their regulatory capital on a blanket of at least 25 percent of mortgages being at risk, smaller lenders must base their risk weightings at 39 percent :: Read the full article »»»»
