THE WHENUA’S NECTAR – STAR-SPANGLED PANDA PROTEIN BUY UPS – CHINA + USA COLLABORATE TO PROFIT OFF NZ LAND
Wall Street farming is the next wave of billionaire families. Their scope is vast. China and USA’s billionaires (and their shareholders) have designs for the South Island of New Zealand’s high quality water supplies and agricultural whenua (land). In a farming context, the arable lands are capable of high protein dairy yields.
This can turn water into gold in the form of protein. Asian nations need protein. And if you look at the USA’s heat record and how that has affected farmers of the USA’s crops in 2012, the USA needs increased protein too.
The story goes: Yashili was set up by brothers Zhang Lidian and Zhang Likun in 1998 and is ultimately controlled by the Zhang family. US private equity firm Carlyle Group bought a stake in the Chinese company in 2009 to ramp up its research and production, and raised HK$2.7 billion when it floated a minority share in Hong Kong the following year.
The shares gained 0.4 per cent to HK$2.38 in trading yesterday, and have almost doubled in the past 12 months.
Chairman Zhang Lidian is on the Chinese committee of the International Dairy Federation, and serves as a representative for the Guangdong province in the National People’s Congress, according to Yashili’s website. (more…)

Still, some film people here worry that Mr Jackson’s rise has come at a price. The New Zealand government has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into Mr Jackson’s mainstream movies and even rewritten labor laws to accommodate his Hollywood partners. What about other homegrown directors, (more…)

CLIMATE CHANGE. SMART ENERGY. SMART JOBS CREATION – ELECTION USA 2012′s HOT POTATO TOPICS TO WIN ELECTION
Climate Change is USA’s no.1 election woe: “Our climate is changing. And while the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in New York City and around the world may or may not be the result of it, the risk that it may be – given the devastation it is wreaking – should be enough to compel all elected leaders to take immediate action,” billionaire Michael Bloomberg wrote, after a superstorm on the East Coast brought New York to a halt costing the city US$150 million a day in lost earning revenue.
Obama responded to the billionaire’s unexpected endorse with this is one of “the most important issues of our time,” adding it is “a threat to our children’s future.”
Most Americans have been focused on the buck and the economy. Few have focused on sustainability of the world (climate change being a key factor now) in living wiser lives beyond today.
Most scientists are not leaing towards making superstorm Sandy a climate change issue. Though if we’re honest we’d all admit human activity causes global warming and changing weather patterns that can bring economies and decades of building to their knees in a single day.
Gauging weather pattern flows is now an issue of economic planning flows ahead. All the signs in New York Square and the skysrapers of buildings lit up night after night (with some other country’s energy source – mainly)… is that really a priority for NYC now? When the US is overprinting the greenback at the rate it is, the energy acquires aren’t paid for in really dollars anyway – so, that needs a right going over too perhaps.
Those are the kinds of questions New York and large super cities like New York need to be asking when city planning. Then we need to look very closely at China too and energy use and also manufacturing and the environment. If these two super powers can slug it out and get some air standards going on between the two nations – the world will be more at peace.
Also war’s destructive effects are nada good for the environment much either, let alone the cost to human life. (more…)
Show biz duo, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough ‘s statement at a Beverly Hills party was “heist.” It’s a sentiment that Leonardo DiCaprio also brought to the screen in The Great Gatsby remake seen on screens worldwide this year.
What does the statement the duo are saying of Americans and the world? It’s very The Untouchables meets Beyonce songwriting lyrics too. “This is a stick up, ya’ll.” Corporate gangsta monopoly rolls – culture statements. Kinda dark.

So nice of Ryan to tottle down from The Hills parties set, to the flats of BH for this photo snap. Julianne too.

CRISTIANO RONALDO’S GOAL IN 90th MINUTE CAPS FIVE GOAL THRILLER SOCCER MATCH – REAL MADRID 3. MANCHESTER CITY 2.
It was all go in sports news where it most counted in soccer football’s crucial 90th minute.
Soccer News: Sports Illustrated on CNN.Com reports:
“MADRID (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo had the last word in a wild shootout against Manchester City, scoring in the 90th minute Tuesday as Real Madrid came back for a 3-2 victory in a Champions League opener where all five goals came over the last 25 minutes.
Ronaldo, returning to the Santiago Bernabeu for the first time since saying he felt “sad” at the club, scored with a dipping shot that slipped past goalkeeper Joe Hart as Madrid showed the grit and determination that coach Jose Mourinho had said was missing from the team.
Ronaldo’s winner capped a frantic finale after City had done well to soak up Madrid’s pressure in the first half before twice taking the lead in the second.”
Sensational play from Real Madrid as teamwork, endurance and luck all fused together at match close.
Scorers: Real Madrid (3): Karim Benzema, Javi Garcia. Manchester City (2): Eden Dzeko, Aleksandar Kolarov, Cristiano Ronaldo.
