 China raises fears of new colonialism with $60 billion investment across Africa Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

China raises fears of 'new colonialism' with $60 billion investment across Africa Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday pledged $60 billion in financing for projects in Africa in the form of assistance, investment and loans, as China furthers efforts to link the continent's economic prospects to its own.To get more china social news, you can visit shine news official website. Speaking to a gathering of African leaders in Beijing, Mr Xi said the figure includes $15 billion in grants, interest-free loans and concessional loans, $20 billion in credit lines, $10 billion for "development financing" and $5 billion to buy imports from Africa. In addition, he said China will encourage companies to invest at least $10 billion in Africa over the next three years. China's outreach to Africa aims to build trade, investment and political ties with a continent often seen as overlooked by the US and other Western nations. That has provided lucrative opportunities for Chinese businesses, while African nations are often happy to accept China's offers that come without demands for safeguards against corruption, waste and environmental damage.China has denied engaging in "debt trap" diplomacy, and Mr Xi's offer of more money comes after a pledge of another $60 billion at the previous summit in South Africa three years ago. Mr Xi earlier said the money came with "no political strings attached". No details were given on specific projects, although Mr Xi said China was planning initiatives in eight areas, including providing $147 million in emergency food aid, sending 500 agricultural experts to Africa, and providing scholarships, vocational training and trade promotion opportunities. During a speech at the summit South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Monday delivered a stinging rebuttal to criticism of China's development aid in Africa. Mr Ramaphosa said the meeting "refutes the view that a new colonialism is taking hold in Africa, as our detractors would have us believe". China's latest pledge comes on top of a 2015 promise to provide African countries with $60 billion in funding that Mr Xi said had either been delivered or arranged. Also Monday, Mr Xi promoted Beijing's initiative to build ports and other infrastructure as a tool for "common prosperity" in a world facing challenges from trade protectionism.Addressing businesspeople prior to the formal opening of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, Mr Xi said the "Belt and Road" initiative will expand markets. He tried to mollify concern that Beijing wants to build strategic influence, promising Chinese investment comes with "no political strings attached." "Unilateralism and protectionism are on the rise. Economic growth lacks robust drive," Mr Xi said in a speech. "China-Africa cooperation under the BRI is a way to common prosperity that brings benefits to both our peoples."

 Gary Payton People do not know was the first LeBron Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

Long before the social media era, when anyone can find the next basketball star's mixtape with a simple click, Jason Kidd was creating a buzz as a bona fide phenom even before delivering his first college basketball assist.To get more basketball news article, you can visit shine news official website. "People don't know, J was the first LeBron [when it came to the attention surrounding one player] coming out of high school," fellow Oakland Bay Area native and Basketball Hall of Famer Gary Payton said. "He was good. Really, really good. In the Bay Area, that's what all the talk was about -- J-Kidd." In the late 1980s and early '90s, Kidd was considered the next great basketball phenomenon. The teenager with a mouth full of braces but a 6-foot-4 NBA-ready body was drawing national attention and comparisons to Magic Johnson and Bob Cousy. Kidd was also being compared to another legendary local passer on the other side of the Bay.Joe Montana was doing the things in the '80s, winning Super Bowls," Payton said. "I had left [for college] in '86 and then J came in and all of the sudden, they [Montana and Kidd] were the biggest things in the Bay Area at the time." Fittingly, Kidd will have Payton with him on stage to present him when he is enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday night. It was Payton who mentored Kidd in Oakland, but it was also The Glove's brutally tough love and psychologically demoralizing practice sessions that often sent Kidd to the brink of quitting basketball as an underclassman in high school. Finding himself at the mercy of The Glove's legendary suffocating defense and soul-crushing trash-talking, Kidd said he was unable to score a single basket against Payton, who is five years older, during games and drills for two years. "Oh, there were tears," Kidd told ESPN. "My parents would ask me, 'What's wrong?' I would be like, I think I should pick a different sport because I am not very good at it. He wouldn't let me score. [And] he would tell me you are not going to score ... that I was soft and that I wasn't good enough. And for a kid in high school that was built up to be this great high school player, it was very humbling and hard to swallow.Payton's tough-love tutelage helped fuel Kidd's early success. Kidd led St. Joseph (Alameda) High School to a 122-14 record and two straight state championships. He won the Naismith Award as the country's top prep player and was Parade's and USA Today's High School Player of the Year after averaging 25 points, 10 assists, 7 rebounds and 7 steals as a senior. The demand to see Kidd play forced St. Joseph, a Catholic school with under 500 students, to often move its games to the Oakland Coliseum Arena (now Oracle Arena) to accommodate crowds that averaged 12,000. As a teen, Kidd played pickup with the likes of Payton, Chris Mullin, Mitch Richmond and Tim Hardaway, had his jerseys and posters sold at his high school games, and was featured in Sports Illustrated as one of the nation's most highly recruited players with a photo of him lying on his bed full of recruiting letters and programs.
