    Western powers? Is this some club or something that tries to keep the Chinese people down? And why do only the Chinese leaders know about this huge conspiracy?

    They are called the Olympic GAMES ... it's a game ... it's not a conspiracy. But thank you, China, for making sure all of the attention went back to you instead of on the people who received medals.

    Just as they are biased against the USA. When you have counties with high Medal counts judges seem to go with countries with lower medal counts.

    How can they be biased against China? The country has a population of more than 1 billion & an intensive/expensive government-funded training system that identifies & then plucks talented youngsters from their families in order to win Olympic gold for their country (& more so, for themselves)...how can the Olympics possibly be seen to be biased against that?!! And being an Aussie, I bear no pro-US sentiments that might cloud my opinion in any way...

    There may be a lot of CHINA ENVY because they have matured as a nation after many years in the dark ages.

    They are a disciplined people and they deserve to win. There's no conspiracy per se; just jealousness/envy.

    Train harder and be more disciplined and you will beat them. No need to stack the deck against them.

    Asia is the future of this earth.........they still hold the values and self discipline we once held as Americans. We are bowing out of the world stage gradually........

    I wouldn't go so far as to say that. We do with 300 million what they do with 1.4 billion people. They have more medals than any other country, and I don't know of any incidents that are directly related to any bias, or protest, or any jealousy against China at all in these Olympics. It sounds like if the Chinese leadership is seeing biased, then maybe they feel that they should win all of the medals and nobody else deserves to win anything but them. I haven't seen any bias at all so far. Where is this coming from?

    The Chinese govt. has been pulling out all the stops for their Olympic programs in a desperate attempt to look like the dominate world power it wants to be. They pull kids away from their families at an early age to send them to intensive training camps where all they do is train for the Olympics at the expense of their education and general well being strictly for national pride. Now that they aren't winning as many medals as they think they should be they're crying foul...boo hooo.

    23 year old Lu Ying for one, she's the Olympic swimmer who trained in Australia and dared to openly go against the govt. and say that it's China's "Spartan training methods" that produced superior young athletes.

    Maybe while you're traveling the world you can google some information about it yourself and find out what you can't in China because of govt. censorship?

    Thank you very much for your reply, which means you are interested in China and whatever happens in this part of the world. Let's talk as friends and with mutual respcet.

    First, we all know that no pains no gains. If we just admire the glory that some atheletes enjoy as medalists while forget about the sufferings they have had behind the stage, we may become, well...., very lazy and very stupid. It is the same case with a beauty. She has to suffer a lot in order to keep her body in shape and sometimes she even has to be "cruel" to herself of not enjoying much delicious food. Men sometimes just have to employ "Spartan training methods" to be stronger and extraordinary. If you are against "Spartan training methods", it is definitely your freedom. If you are against it just because it is employed by some Chinese sports schools, I feel very sorry. By the way, have you ever dreamed of being successful without any hardships?

    Second, please understand that China is very big and highly populous. Whatever happened in China is branded China but can never stand for China as a whole. You may find Moslims, Chrisitans and Buddhists in China. But you can never say that China is a Moslim or Christian country. It is also a hundred percent true that there are cat and dog eaters in China. But ...

Reports say that there were tragedies in the States , in which cases many innocent people were killed. But can you say that all Americans are interested in killing themselves? Of course not.

    Chinese investment banker Jin-yong Cai was named Friday as new chief executive of the International Finance Corporation, the World Bank's rapidly expanding private finance arm. Cai will take responsibility for the World Bank unit that helps private businesses and industries develop in poor and middle income countries, investing some $20 billion in fiscal 2012. He comes to the job from running Goldman Sachs's China investment banking business, as chief executive of Goldman Sachs Gao Hua Securities. He has also worked for Morgan Stanley, China International Capital and, early in his career, at the World Bank as an economist. "He has gathered a wealth of experience working with various financial products, and has a proven track record managing highly complex business transactions, demonstrating sound judgment on risk, and forging deep relationships with clients in both developed and developing markets across the globe," the World Bank said in a statement. World Bank chief Jim Yong Kim said that with his deep background, Cai "will help IFC identify sound, strategic private sector investments and public-private partnerships that will help reduce poverty and create greater prosperity for people in the developing world.

    Saturday, 11 August 2012 The BIG FIVE seem to be getting smaller when it comes to trusting these banks. Barclays on Thursday said industry veteran David Walker would become its new chairman from November, succeeding Marcus Agius who resigned over the Libor rate-rigging( never heard of this before do not want to hear any on this again) scandal that has rocked the British bank. A statement said "Sir David Walker has been appointed as a non-executive director of Barclays with effect from 1 September 2012 and will succeed Marcus Agius as chairman of Barclays with effect from 1 November 2012." Walker, a former deputy head of the Bank of England and ex-chairman of US bank Morgan Stanley, said his "immediate priority, and critical to Barclays' ongoing success, will be the appointment of a new chief executive." Barclays is looking for a new chief executive after US national Bob Diamond quit the post at the start of July along with Agius and the bank's chief operating officer Jerry del Missier owing to the Libor scandal The London-listed bank was fined £290 million ($453 million, 369 million euros) in June by British and US regulators after admitting that it attempted to manipulate the Libor and Euribor rates between 2005 and 2009.

    Saturday, 11 August 2012 The BIG FIVE seem to be getting smaller when it comes to trusting these banks.

Barclays is looking for a new chief executive after US national Bob Diamond quit the post at the start of July along with Agius and the bank's chief operating officer Jerry del Missier owing to the Libor scandal The London-listed bank was fined £290 million ($453 million, 369 million euros) in June by British and US regulators after admitting that it attempted to manipulate the Libor and Euribor rates between 2005 and 2009. Britain's Serious Fraud Office is considering whether to bring criminal prosecutions over the Libor scandal, while Prime Minister David Cameron has launched a parliamentary inquiry into revelations that Barclays traders lied about the interest rates other banks were charging it for loans. Libor, or London Interbank Offered Rate, is a flagship London instrument used as an interest benchmark throughout the world, while Euribor is the eurozone equivalent. The rates affect what banks, businesses and individuals pay to borrow money, while the scandal risks engulfing banks across the world. Walker, who is 72, has worked at Britain's Treasury and is presently a senior advisor to Morgan Stanley, said he was looking forward to playing his part "in taking the company forward after recent events." We know that the banks create cash but this is certainly the strangest way to siphon the cash from the public. This is theft put in simple English terms What good will come out of it is not clear but what is clear is that it's a disabled world, and I believe, the doctors and dentists can do better than these bankers and economists today. It is like we are in between, "Did we come here to laugh or cry? Are we dying or being born?" With the rising costs and expenses each day, and the incomes on decline or defunct, and no one ideology in works, the alternative is to combat the economic terrorism by the banks, and break them apart, get rid of the third party order and tear it down, and all that we are serviced and valued by the last centuries in our new millennium. How happy we are when the records are broken at the Olympics and new ones are established, and it is time to create that kind of human spirit in asset, value and consumerism. People of the world get united than remain divided, in debts, depressed or bankrupt. Where are the doors and the windows for escape if any show me I need one or two thank you Firozali A.Mulla DBA
