    If you’re scared of heights, you’re going to find that this walkway is going to scare you just looking at the photos! You aren’t alone, though, and many people would take one look at this adventure and simply turn the other way. After all, who needs to walk around 5000 feet in the air, anyway, right? If, however, you are taking one look at this glass option and thinking “How fast can I get there?”, you aren’t alone either. All you have to do is take a look at the photos and see that there are other adventurers that are...

    ST. CROIX — It was all talk and little to show for it back in June 2016, when The Consortium asked Governor Kenneth Mapp about a timeline for jobs he said would be coming to St. Croix through the ArcLight Partners, LLC agreement, as the firm had partnered with China Petroleum & Chemical Corp., also called Sinopec, for the expansion of the Limetree Bay Terminals’ oil storage facility, other oil-related work, and, importantly, some oil refining. These jobs were to be aside from the roughly 500 people currently working at the oil storage facility. “I have no specific date to...

    President Donald J. Trump has proven that his desire to ‘Make America Great Again’ is more than just a campaign slogan. China, which possesses one of the fastest growing economies in the world, has a reputation for “using” the United States to gain financial and technological advantages. Trump’s recent visit to China was aimed at taking a tougher stance on U.S.-Chinese trade relations, which he described as “very one-sided and unfair.” Trump came away with $250 billion in new trade deals, a pretty astonishing accomplishment for a President who has been in office for less than a year.According to,...

    LaVar Ball, whose son was one of the three UCLA basketball players detained in China on shoplifting charges last week, said “who?” when asked about President Trump’s role in getting the players released. "Who?" Ball told ESPN when asked about Trump's role. "What was he over there for? Don't tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out." Ball, the CEO of the sports apparel company Big Baller Brand, downplayed Trump’s role in securing his son LiAngelo Ball’s release. His son, along with two other players, was arrested and accused of shoplifting from a Louis...

    SNIP While she was initially informed that she’d be able to gain access, the decision was apparently reversed after the government caught wind of a controversial incident from 2015, in which Perry donned a bright, glittery dress with sunflowers on it during a performance in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. Her outfit wound up causing widespread outrage because the sunflower had been adopted the year before by anti-China protesters. To drive her point home, Perry also waved a Taiwanese flag during the concert in show of support for the country, which has been butting heads with China for years over...

    SEOUL -- During his first visit to South Korea, President Donald Trump suggested on Tuesday that North Korea enter into talks over scrapping its nuclear and missile programs, apparently keeping the door open for dialogue with Pyongyang after months of tough talk on both sides. The U.S. president called on China and Russia to play roles in ending the Kim Jong Un regime's nuclear weapons program, urging both countries to cease trade and business with the belligerent communist nation. Trump is due in Beijing on Wednesday following his two-day visit to South Korea. "I really believe that it makes sense...

    North Korea suggested Wednesday it may be open to giving up its nuclear weapons, but only if the U.S. did so first. Ruling Korean Workers' Party newspaper Rodong Sinmun published a commentary Wednesday in which the country's authoritarian leadership challenged President Donald Trump to reverse his support for a bigger, stronger U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal and adopt a non-proliferation policy. North Korea has argued its weapons of mass destruction stockpile was necessary only to prevent the U.S. from overthrowing the government of Kim Jong Un, which the U.S. has threatened to do by force if he did not abandon his...

    The general behind Zimbabwe’s coup may have sought Chinese approval days before the army launched its takeover of Robert Mugabe’s government, it emerged on Wednesday. Mr. Mugabe remained under house arrest, still president of Zimbabwe if in name alone, a prisoner of once slavishly loyal generals who now hold the country’s fate in their hands. As the former British colony faced a deeply uncertain future under military tutelage, a trip to Beijing by General Constantine Chiwenga, the head of the armed forces, last week has reignited concerns about rising Chinese influence in Africa. The general held high-level meetings with officials...

    Needy Christians are forced to replace religious images with pictures of the president to get aid. “They think God is their saviour,” an official said. “After our cadres’ work, they’ll realise their mistakes and think: we should no longer rely on Jesus, but on the party for help”. According to some sources, the number of Christians exceeds that of party members.Beijing (AsiaNews/SCMP) – Yugan County, a poor rural area in the southern province of Jiangxi Province, has undertaken a campaign to replace religious faith with faith in the party. To achieve this, the local government is asking people to replace...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China apologized Wednesday before coach Steve Alford announced they were being suspended indefinitely. LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were described as "good young men" by Alford at a campus news conference. The coach said the trio wouldn't be allowed to suit up, practice or travel with the team while the university continues to sort out the circumstances of last week's incident in Hangzhou, China. Ball, Hill and Riley took turns acknowledging their actions and apologizing while also thanking President Donald Trump for intervening on their behalf...

I am grateful to be back home and I will never make a mistake like this again. I...

    Human remains buried by a pair of monks in China over a millennia ago are claimed to belong to Buddha. Believers say the 2,000 pieces of cremated bones belonged to Siddhartha Gautama, whose teachings became the foundations of the Buddhist religion. The cremated bones were found in an ceramic box with an inscription claiming they belong to Buddha, who is believed to have died 2,500 years ago. The box was found in Jingchuan County, China, alongside more than 260 Buddhist statues.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A report to the U.S. Congress released on Wednesday accused Chinese state media entities of involvement in spying and propaganda and said their staff in the United States should be required to register as foreign agents. The annual report of the U.S. China Economic and Security Review Commission said that while China had tightened restrictions on domestic and foreign media, Chinese state media had rapidly expanded overseas. The commission, created by Congress in 2000 to monitor national security implications of U.S.-China trade relations, said China’s state media expansion was part of a broader effort to exert greater...

    As we all know, crimes like shoplifting are punished harshly by Chinese authorities, especially when committed by foreigners. The previous administration allowed Americans to languish in horrific foreign prisons for crimes far less egregious, yet President Trump wasted little time to bring up the accused UCLA players with expeditious, definitive results. Of course, the black activist left will never acknowledge President Trump's intervention in what could have been a long, drawn-out State Department negotiation that normally leaves the detained Americans in nasty jails for weeks, months, or worse. They'll probably insist President Trump was simply doing his job and probably...

Schumer said he had "never been more ashamed" of a president's actions abroad. "I have never been so ashamed of a foreign trip in my years. It's just inside-out," Schumer said. "We attack our friends and the people who have given us the most trouble, China and Russia, we [mollycoddle] — that is so bad for the future of this country." Trump has taken criticism for ignoring rampant human rights abuses while interacting with the...
