-----
The World Bank withholds loan disbursements in order to build a reputation for enforcing conditionality, and multinational firms lobby for these funds to be released. Using data drawn from World Bank reports, we find evidence that (1) participation by Fortune 500 multinational corporations as project contractors and (2) investments by these firms are associated with disbursements that are unjustified by project performance. In addition, these measures of corporate interest are associated with inflated project evaluations. These effects are limited to multinational corporations headquartered in the United States or Japan, suggesting that the influence of private actors depends on access to particular national policy networks. In contrast to the evidence of corporate influence, we find no consistent evidence of geopolitical influences.

Tư bản trong thế kỷ 21

trái với luận điểm của Piketty, nghiên cứu mới nói rằng các chủ doanh nghiệp tư nhân cỡ vừa, những người tuyển dụng lao động có kỹ năng và trong ngành ko tập trung (độc quyền), đóng góp chính vào bất bình đẳng thu nhập từ năm 2000 trở lại đây...

đại khái là private business owner chứ ko phải rentier (người sống bằng tiền lợi tức)
-----
Anti-Piketty:

Have passive rentiers replaced the working rich at the top of the U.S. income distribution? Using administrative data linking 10 million firms to their owners, this paper shows that private business owners who actively manage their firms are key for top income inequality. Private business income accounts for most of the rise of top incomes since 2000 and the majority of top earners receive private business income—most of which accrues to active owner-managers of mid-market firms in relatively skill-intensive and unconcentrated industries. Profit falls substantially after premature owner deaths. Top-owned firms are twice as profitable per worker as other firms despite similar risk, and rising profitability without rising scale explains most of their profit growth. Together, these facts indicate that the working rich remain central to rising top incomes in the twenty-first century.

That is from a new paper by Matthew Smith, Danny Yagan, Owen Zidar, and Eric Zwick.

China is expected shortly to launch a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold in what analysts say could be a game-changer for the industry.

The contract could become the most important Asia-based crude oil benchmark, given that China is the world's biggest oil importer. Crude oil is usually priced in relation to Brent or West Texas Intermediate futures, both denominated in U.S. dollars.

China's move will allow exporters such as Russia and Iran to circumvent U.S. sanctions by trading in yuan. To further entice trade, China says the yuan will be fully convertible into gold on exchanges in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

"The rules of the global oil game may begin to change enormously," said Luke Gromen, founder of U.S.-based macroeconomic research company FFTT.

For more than three years, the average one-way fare between Detroit and Philadelphia never dipped below $308, and sometimes moved higher, topping $385 at one point.

But then, early in 2016, fares suddenly started to fall, according to data from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. By the end of the year, the average one-way ticket between the two cities stood at just $183.


…Even as a wave of mergers has cut the number of major carriers to four and significantly reduced competition, lower-cost airlines continue to play a role in moderating ticket costs.

…The cost of a round-trip domestic ticket averaged more than $490 in the first half of the year, up slightly compared with 2016, according to Airlines Reporting Corporation, a company that settles flight transactions between a number of carriers and booking services like Expedia.

The jostling, however, has left airline investors skittish. As the publicly traded airlines in July reported earnings for the second quarter, shareholders sold off their shares, worried about the fight over fares and capacity increases.

That is from Micah Maidenberg at the NYT. In other words, the market still has a fair amount of contestability.

nông dân scotland được khuyến khích chôn quần lót dưới đồng cỏ để... nâng chất lượng thịt bò :D
-----

The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) and Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) claim interring (chôn cất, mai táng) a pair of cotton smalls in a pasture (đồng cỏ, bãi cỏ) can reveal vital information about soil fertility (tình trạng màu mỡ, khả năng sinh sản).

According to the experts, sterile (tiệt trùng, khử trùng, triệt sản) and lifeless soil will keep underwear intact, but organically thriving soil will eat away at the briefs (quần đùi, xi líp), leaving nothing but the elastic waistband (chun quần, cạp váy).

Dig up the pants after just two months, and it is possible to judge how healthy the land is.

Soil conditions on beef and sheep farms directly influence how well grass and forage crops grow and, consequently, the quality of the feed they produce. And better feed produces healthier, tastier animals.

..."The theory behind the test is that the cotton will be devoured by the microbes and bacteria in the soil, so the more you have the better,” he said.

...Pouncy had pulled out the gun and demanded cash from two employees, pressing the gun to the head of a 39-year-old worker. The victim, who had been passing a bucket filled with grease over the counter, called for his co-worker to hand over the cash from the register. As they passed their wallets and a stack of singles to Pouncy, the bucket tipped and bills went flying.

Still pointing the gun at the workers, Pouncy stooped over to collect the cash. Shifting the gun in his waistband as he ran out, he apparently pulled the trigger, firing a bullet that struck him in the penis. One of the restaurant employees, 39, then began wrestling with Pouncy as he tried to run away, before he staggered out into the street. Surveillance cameras captured video and audio of the robbery, and showed Pouncy struggling to make it across the the street, stop on a bench, and make his way to the steps of a nearby house before collapsing,

In his report about the interview, the detective wrote that when asked about his address, “Mr. Sykes leaned to one side of his chair and released a loud fart before answering with the address.”

“Mr. Sykes continued to be flatulent and I ended the interview,” the detective wrote.

Charges were not filed at that time.

Then on Nov. 5, police pulled over a car driven by Sykes.

According to the allegations in court documents, police found marijuana and crack cocaine inside the vehicle. They also found a .38-caliber revolver that had been reported stolen from Overland Park.

Sykes made an initial court appearance Monday and was ordered held in custody pending a hearing later this week to determine if a bond will be set.

Membership to one of the most exclusive clubs in the world takes place around a short red and white striped pole in Antarctica. Only those who endure an atmospheric difference of 300 degrees Fahrenheit are granted entry.

...To join the exclusive group, the scientists must first spend time in the station’s 200-degree sauna. Once they’re fully cooked, they dash outside (at a brisk walk, because running is dangerous) wearing nothing but shoes and an optional neck gaiter to circle the ceremonial South Pole marker, which is hundreds of feet from the station. They then get back into the steamy sauna, which helps thaw their outsides while a bit of alcohol warms them up inside. Those who complete the challenge even earn a commemorative patch.

Though the thought of a naked scientist racing across the ice in dangerously cold temperatures to circle a pole may seem simply absurd, it’s actually a beloved ritual. The temperature only gets low enough a handful of days each year, giving the wacky tradition an almost ceremonial feel. Participants are usually cheered on by bystanders who use flashlights to guide them to the pole during the perpetual winter blackness...

"Rob the cradle" nghĩa là gì?

The Wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, Photograph at Buckingham Palace, July 29, 1981. Photo courtesy Joe Haupt.

'Rob the cradle' = cướp nôi -> nghĩa là cưới/quan hệ với người trẻ hơn mình (to marry or become romantically involved with a much younger person); già còn thích chơi trống bỏi.

Ví dụ
Although Moore allegedly kissed two of the women who spoke to the Post, Corfman is the only one who said Moore touched her sexually. Debbie Wesson Gibson was 17 when she told her mother that Moore had asked her on a date, she said. Another woman, Wendy Miller, said she was repeatedly courted by Moore when she was 16 years old. Miller's mother told the Post that she denied Moore permission to date her daughter, telling him, "You're too old for her … let's not rob the cradle."

At 31, he was facing the fact that every woman suitable in terms of pedigree, age, worldliness, and intelligence was either married or had long since lost her virginity. In 1980 – more than a decade after the sexual revolution had started – he was hemmed in by the royal custom of marrying a virgin, or at least a woman who seemed virginal. He was forced, in effect, to rob the cradle. The 12-year age gap between Charles and Diana was unbridgeable. He had been through the ups and downs of the formative years of early adulthood, pushing to find a role for himself and channel his passions into action, while Diana was still an adolescent. They had no intellectual connections, few mutual friends, no interests in common, and none of the shared life experiences he would have with a contemporary.

Sự nghiệp kỳ lạ của Herbert Hoover

Tổng thống thứ 31 của Mỹ đã vượt qua những trở ngại phi thường, nhưng Đại Suy thoái đã khiến ông chùn bước.

Tác giả Kenneth Whyte

Với các hoạt động từ thiện trong Thế chiến I, Herbert Hoover được miêu tả là một "người
đàn ông bắt đầu sự nghiệp ở California và sẽ kết thúc ở trên thiên đường". Trong cuốn tiểu sử mới, Kenneth Whyte kể ra rất nhiều khó khăn Hoover đã trải qua. Nhìn chung, ông đã tận dụng những khó khăn ấy để làm lợi cho bản thân—tích lũy của cải, đạt được danh vọng và trở thành tổng thống thứ 31 của Mỹ. Ít nhất là như vậy cho đến thời Đại Suy thoái, sự kiện đã hủy hoại ông về mặt chính trị.

Sinh ra ở Iowa vào năm 1874, Hoover đã sớm quyết tâm làm giàu bởi của cải mang tới an toàn và tự chủ. Sau khi tốt nghiệp làm nhà địa chất học từ Stanford, ông quản lý các mỏ vàng trên biên giới nước Úc nóng nực và mỏ than ở Trung Quốc trong những ngày tàn của nhà Thanh. Sự nghiệp đó mang lại của cải mà ông khao khát.

A new paper in the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy by Bisschop, Kastoryano, and van der Klaauw looks at the opening and closing of prostitution zones (tippelzones) in 25 Dutch cities.

Our empirical results show that opening a tippelzone reduces sexual abuse and rape. These results are mainly driven by a 30–40 percent reduction in the first two years after opening the tippelzone (giảm 30-40% hiếp dâm sau 2 năm mở khu mại dâm hợp pháp). For tippelzones with a licensing system, we additionally find long-term decreases in sexual assaults and a 25 percent decrease in drug-related crime, which persists in the medium to long run.

Cunningham and Shah studied decriminalization (phi hình sự hóa) of indoor prostitution (mại dâm) in Rhode Island and found very similar results.

We exploit the fact that a Rhode Island District Court judge unexpectedly decriminalized indoor prostitution in 2003 to provide the first causal estimates of the impact of decriminalization on the composition of the sex market, rape offenses, and sexually transmitted infection outcomes. Not surprisingly, we find that decriminalization increased the size of the indoor market. However, we also find that decriminalization caused both forcible rape offenses and gonorrhea (bệnh lậu) incidence to decline (giảm) for the overall population. Our synthetic control model finds 824 fewer reported rape offenses (31 percent decrease) and 1,035 fewer cases of female gonorrhea (39 percent decrease) from 2004 to 2009.

In addition a working paper by Riccardo Ciacci and María Micaela Sviatschi studies prostitution in New York and also finds that prostitution significantly reduces sex crimes such as rape:

We use a unique data set to study the effect of indoor prostitution establishments on sex crimes. We built a daily panel from January 1, 2004 to June 30, 2012 with the exact location of police stops for sex crimes and the day of opening and location of indoor prostitution establishments. We find that indoor prostitution decreases sex crime with no effect on other types of crime. We argue that the reduction is mostly driven by potential sex offenders that become customers of indoor prostitution establishments. We also rule out other mechanisms such as an increase in the number of police officers and a reduction of potential victims in areas where these businesses opened. In addition, results are robust to different data sources and measures of sex crimes apart from police stops.

It’s become common to think that rape is about power and not about sex. No doubt. But some of it is about sex. Quoting Ciacci and Sviatschi again:

We find evidence consistent with the fact that potential perpetrators substitute towards indoor prostitution establishments instead of engaging in sex crimes….This mechanism is in line with a survey of men who had purchased sex from women in London. About 54% of these men stated that if prostitution did not exist then they would be more likely to rape women who were not prostitutes. This belief was clearly held by one man who even stated: “Sometimes you might rape someone: you can go to a prostitute instead” (Farley et al., 2009). (đôi khi muốn hiếp ai đó, đến nhà thổ thôi).

In short, a wide variety of evidence from different authors, times and places, and experiments shows clearly and credibly that prostitution reduces rape. This finding is of great importance in considering how prostitution should be rationally regulated.

Male humpback dolphins do more than just perform acrobatics to attract a mate - they also offer gifts, according to new research.

Marine biologists working off the northwest coast of Australia have observed a rare mating display in which male dolphins were seen gathering and offering large marine sponges (bọt biển) to females. Scientists have never seen this behaviour in dolphins before, highlighting a previously unknown level of social complexity.

Sexual displays are common throughout the animal kingdom, but displays accompanied by objects, or gifts, are actually quite rare. It's a behaviour often seen in some birds, but in mammals it's practically nonexistent outside of humans. New research published in Scientific Reports shows that another mammal, the Australian humpback dolphin (Sousa sahulensis), also participates in these ornamental mating rituals. But as to whether the female dolphins are actually impressed or persuaded by these behaviours, that remains unanswered.

The woman was caught giving the man oral sex (quan hệ tình dục bằng miệng) while the two were in their seats, the station further reported.

Both the man and woman were traveling to Detroit to catch separate connecting flights: He was going on to Miami, and she to Nashville. The two were reportedly strangers before meeting on the plane.

"The act itself is inappropriate in a public space," one traveler told the station. "There are children," said another. "There are families. There are seniors. These things should be respected."

The FBI said the investigation was underway and the two might be charged with a misdemeanor (cư xử xấu, tội nhẹ, khinh tội), or even a felony (trọng tội).

"Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave" nghĩa là gì?

'Seek education/knowledge from the cradle to the grave' = học là việc cả đời,
~ ngạn ngữ Ả Rập
children's discovery museum, bangkok, thailand, 16/11/2017.

Ví dụ
On Nov 20, Pakistan’s children point out that every girl and boy has a right to learn. They remind us that one should seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave — yet 22.6m of them remain out of school, 12.1m of them girls. As they take over the spaces that are normally reserved for adults, Pakistan’s children ask us how we protect them from violence, abuse and exploitation.

"Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave." This is a verse from the Qur'an I believe everyone should aspire to live by, especially women. In generations gone by, women were made to believe that their place was in the kitchen, that their job was to be a wife and a mother and to look after their family. This patriarchal belief system had women believing that they didn't need to pursue their education or work towards a career, and that the husband would be the breadwinner and provide for all the needs. The women were financially dependent on their husbands.

“The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr.” “Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave.” “God has revealed to me, ‘Whoever walks in the pursuit of knowledge I facilitate for him the way to heaven.’ “The best form of worship is the pursuit of knowledge.” “Scholars should endeavor to spread knowledge and provide education to people who have been deprived of it. For, where knowledge is hidden it disappears.”
Some one asked the Prophet (peace be upon him): “Who is the biggest scholar?” He replied: “He who is constantly trying to learn from others, for a scholar is ever hungry for more knowledge.” Seek for knowledge and. wisdom, or whatever the ‘vessel from which it flows, you will never be the loser.” “Thinking deep for one hour (with sincerity) is better than 70 years of (mechanical) worship.”

One of the cities that claims to be the birthplace (nơi sinh, cái nôi) of spicy hot pot (lẩu cay), Chongqing, has introduced standards for the dish that, most notably, urge restaurants to stop reusing oil.

On Thursday, the Chongqing Commerce Commission issued a set of guidelines (nguyên tắc chỉ đạo, chủ trương, hướng dẫn) that cover everything from ingredients (thành phần) to cooking temperature (nhiệt độ nấu). The guidelines suggest that restaurants advise customers from outside Chongqing on the optimal dipping time (thời gian nhúng tối ưu) to achieve the best flavor (hương vị thơm ngon nhất). They also include definitions for certain terms, such as the dipping sauce used to cool down ingredients after they are lifted from the soup.

The move is intended to strengthen regulation of the hot pot industry in the southwestern city, and to “meet the needs of people’s increasing demand for a good life,”...

If you know a man who’s a bit insecure of his manhood, then I’d recommend they don’t visit the Austrian Alps. Why? Because a giant wooden penis has been erected on top of a 1,893 metre-high (6,211 ft) mountain. Somehow and for some reason, someone has managed to plonk a huge sculpture of an erect penis right at the top of Mount Oetscher. The phallic statue, nestled on an Alpine peak in south-western Lower Austria, was discovered by blogger Marika Roth. She said of the sculpture: ‘I believe the Oetscher just got a new mascot.’

News of the erect wooden penis quickly spread across the country, with bemused locals discussing the identity of the anonymous artist behind the statue. People are also puzzled as to how they managed to get it to the top of the mountain without anyone spotting it. The Oetscher ski lift operators were equally puzzled by the penis, but seemingly embraced the artwork as a future tourist attraction. One wrote jokingly on social media: ‘With us, not only winter is coming.’
