He may seem invincible today, but almost six years ago, before he came to New Zealand, our trainer Wimbledon suffered from a painful knee, which hurt when he kicked and sparred, or even walked for too long. His knee injury was caused not from fighting, but a training accident with a much larger student several years ago. No amount of rest or medicine from the local doctors would make the pain go away. Upon recommendation, we took him to a renown surgeon based in Hong Kong, who immediately diagnosed it as a bad ACL tear, which needed immediate reconstruction. The surgeon stressed that it was not operated on immediately, by the time he was 40, Wimbledon would be walking like a 70-year old man. The cost of the surgery alone: over NZD$7,000. Not unreasonable for top medical expertise, but about two years salary for the average Thai trainer. With no medical insurance, it was almost out of reach. But then, the most amazing thing happen. Two complete strangers - who happened to be amazing surgeons, decided tha . ...

Thus went a skit put on in the United States in the year 1939 by the Communist party. Two years later, Germany invaded Soviet Russia, and the American Communist party, which had repeatedly described the war between the Axis Powers and the Allied Powers as an imperialist war, now called it a "people's war" against Fascism. Indeed almost all Americans were now in agreement-capitalists, Communists, Democrats, Republicans, poor, rich, and middle class-that this was indeed a people's war. Was it?

Another such group is the Trilateral Commission (TC). Often referred to as "the child of the Bilderberg Group", the TC was founded by David Rockefeller in 1973 with the stated purpose of fostering closer corporation between the US, Western Europe and Japan.

India ranks 94th on global corruption perception index - Third Class India Berlin: India was Tuesday ranked among the world's highly corrupt nations at the 94th spot in a global list topped by Denmark and New Zealand as the cleanest, while Somalia emerged as the most corrupt. While India's rank has remained unchanged from the last year, it has emerged as more corrupt than three of its BRICS peers -- China (80th), South Africa and Brazil (both ranked 72nd) -- but better than Russia (127th) in this annual list of 177 countries compiled by Transparency International. According to the list, India has scored 36 points on a scale of 0-100, where 0 means that a country is perceived as highly corrupt and 100 means it is perceived as very clean. None of the countries have managed to get the perfect 100 score. Top-ranked Denmark and New Zealand have scored 91 points each to share the first place on the list. Somalia shares lowest rank with North Korea and Afghanistan with 8 points each. Those scoring marginally bet ...

The 1st round will have the 2 'strongest' Test playing nations (Zimbabwe and Bangladesh) and the 6 associate teams that played qualifiers. B ...
I’ve recently realized that part of the reason why I post so infrequently (and why I’m so behind…) is because I feel constrained by having a strictly chronological blog — there isn’t all that much freedom to choose what to write about. So, from now until the end of the year, I’ll be provoking an OCD meltdown and writing about what I feel like that day, as well as asking you guys for your input. So, which of these would you most like me to write about for tomorrow’s post? *A round-up of my 10 day Mekong Delta motorbike trip *A frantic rush around Hong Kong's airport when I hadn’t bothered to book an onward ticket and wasn’t allowed on the plane. *A Yosemite photo essay *Glacier hiking in New Zealand

Solicitor From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Not to be confused with Solicitor General (disambiguation) or Door-to-door salesperson in American English. A solicitor is a lawyer who traditionally deals with any legal matter including conducting proceedings in court. In the United Kingdom, a few Australian states, Hong Kong, South Africa (where they are called attorneys) and the Republic of Ireland, the legal profession is split between solicitors and barristers (called advocates in some countries), and a lawyer will usually only hold one of the two titles. However, in Canada, New Zealand and most Australian states, the legal profession is now for practical purposes "fused", allowing lawyers to hold the title of "barrister and solicitor" and practise as both. The distinction between barristers and solicitors is, however, retained. Some legal graduates will start off as one and then decide to become the other.[1] Contents [hide] 1 England and Wales 1.1 Regulatory scheme 1.2 Training and qualifications 1. ...

SCMP Column Philip Bowring Friday, 18 October, 2013 Hong Kong's little bubble of self-importance Philip Bowring says its handling of the Manila bus tragedy aftermath and the proposal for how to raise the fertility rate suggest Hong Kong is not learning lessons from the real world aquino_apec.jpg Members of the Hong Kong Journalists Association stage a protest outside the Philippines consulate. Photo: Felix Wong At times, Hong Kong seems to live in its own little bubble with self-important politicians oblivious to where the city stands in the world. A previous column addressed Donald Tsang Yam-kuen's curious attempts to get an audience with the pope. Now we have all and sundry believing that, in international forums, Leung Chun-ying is the equal of the president of a large independent state. He may appear so at an Apec meeting but the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation forum is only about economic issues. No one here believes that makes him the equal of President Xi Jinping , so why would he be President . ...

NEW LEVEL OF COMFORT FOR Cathay Pacific Published on: Monday, November 4, 2013 Cathay Pacific has added more choice to its New Zealand-Hong Kong route with the introduction of their premium economy class.

THE Asian Shippers' Council (ASC) and the European Shipper Council (ESC) have come out against mandatory container weighing and verification ahead of talks at the UN's International Maritime Organisation in London. The ASC and ESC called on the parties taking part in the decision-making at the IMO "to reject these proposals" that are being made without proper analysis of the impact", reported Lloyd's Loading List. The ASC represents shippers' councils in Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, China, Macau, Taiwan, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The ASC argues that compulsory rules are not required and it should be enough to add guidance to the relevant sections of the UN's Safety of Life at Sea Convention.

IN THE LAND OF NOD: A few interesting truths about sleep … ✓ Artificial lights have changed our natural sleeping patterns. Without them, we would sleep in 2 blocks each night. We would fall asleep around 10 pm and wake up a few hours later, going back to sleep after an hour. Psychologists have found that people revert to sleeping this way if isolated from artificial lights for more than a few weeks. ✓ Children around-the-world have vastly different sleep patterns. Joint research by Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Tel Aviv University has discovered that 95% of babies in Vietnam sleep in their parents’ bed, compared to just 15% in Australia. And in New Zealand, the average bedtime for an infant is 7.30 pm; while in Hong Kong, it’s 10.30 pm. ✓ Female sleep is the key to a happy marriage. A recent University of Pittsburgh study has found that a woman’s ability to fall – and stay – asleep has a greater impact on marital satisfaction than daily interactions with her husband.

Lol, just ran across the rough draft of something I wrote for the Global Adventures page a few years ago. She was too modest to keep most of it, but every line is true... Cindy Miller grew up in the relative obscurity of Des Moines, Iowa and graduated *** laude from Drake University with a degree in International Relations. Her love of travel began as a kid when her parents dragged her across the country on countless, great American road trips. A self-described homebody, she has ventured as far away as Italy, Japan, Spain, and most recently, Australia and New Zealand putting her definition of "homebody" in question. Her next adventure is Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Thailand where she hopes to take in beautiful beaches, ride an elephant and prove the battery of inoculations required to journey there simply precautionary. In addition to travel she loves adventure (hence the moniker attached to her business), and relishes the opportunity to venture off the beaten path and to try something new. Occasionally that ...
"When it gets down to it — talking trade balances here — once we've brain-drained all our technology into other countries, once things have evened out, they're making cars in Bolivia and microwave ovens in Tadzhikistan and selling them here — once our edge in natural resources has been made irrelevant by giant Hong Kong ships and dirigibles that can ship North Dakota all the way to New Zealand for a nickel — once the Invisible Hand has taken away all those historical inequities and smeared them out into a broad global layer of what a Pakistani brickmaker would consider to be prosperity — y'know what?

Indian Shares To Extend Gains On Global Cues Indian shares are seen opening higher on Friday, extending the previous session's rally, after the European Central Bank and Bank of England both said they are prepared to increase stimulus if needed. Key benchmark indexes in Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan are up between 0.5 percent and 1.4 percent ahead of the U.S. non-farm payrolls report due later in the global day. Meanwhile, business activity across emerging economies grew at its slowest pace in more than four years in June, reflecting an overall manufacturing contraction and a drop in new orders, a purchasing managers' survey showed. The composite HSBC Emerging Market Index, which tracks purchasing managers' index reports from 16 emerging economies on a Gross Domestic Product-weighted basis, fell to 50.6 last month from 51.3 in May. Indian shares rose on Thursday, tracking lower crude prices as the threat of a disruption in supplies from the Middle East eased. Sn ...

Mufhasa's career may not be over Two-time New Zealand Horse of the Year Mufhasa may not be heading to the retirement paddock just yet. The rising nine-year-old's future as a racehorse was in doubt following the Gr.1 Champions’ Mile in Hong Kong in May, where he bled and was pulled up. However, Mufhasa is now back in work and co-owner David Archer has indicated that he could be racing during the Hawke's Bay spring carnival. "Mufh is in superb condition and after input from all of his vets in Melbourne, Hong Kong and here in New Zealand, we are allowing him to train up for a possible last campaign which could see him at Hastings for the Makfi,’’ Archer said. "We will be monitoring his training, throat and well-being daily and he will only start again if all is 100 per cent and Mufh keeps telling us he is loving his training regime and does not want to spend his time eating grass just yet."

Colonialism is not the source of Africa's problems Walter Williams: ... African leaders, and many people on the left, blame Africa's problems on the evils of colonialism. They sometimes blame the violence on the borders colonialists created that ignored ethnicity. Many African nations have been independent for four decades. If colonial borders were a major problem, how come they haven't changed them? And, by the way, colonialism cannot explain Third World poverty. Some of today's richest countries are former colonies, such as: United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. Some of today's poorest countries were never colonies, such as: Ethiopia, Liberia, Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan. The colonialism argument is simply a cover up for African dictators. The worst thing the West can do to Africa is to give more foreign aid. For the most part, foreign aid is government to government. As such, it provides the financial resources that enable Africa's grossly corrupt and incompetent regimes to buy milit ...

World War I -On June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary was assassinated, setting off a chain of events leading to World War I. -Britain, allied to France by a more loosely worded treaty which placed a "moral obligation" upon her to defend France, declared war against Germany on 4 August. Her reason for entering the conflict lay in another direction: she was obligated to defend neutral Belgium by the terms of a 75-year old treaty. With Germany's invasion of Belgium on 4 August, and the Belgian King's appeal to Britain for assistance, Britain committed herself to Belgium's defence later that day. Like France, she was by extension also at war with Austria-Hungary. -With Britain's entry into the war, her colonies and dominions abroad variously offered military and financial assistance, and included Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand and the Union of South Africa. -By August 4, Britain had declared war on Germany and, as part of the Empire, Canada automatically entered in the fray.

Weird Car Facts One car out of every 230 made was stolen last year. A car uses 1.6 ounces of gas idling for one minute. Half an ounce is used to start the average automobile. The two-foot long bird called a Kea that lives in New Zealand likes to eat the strips of rubber around car windows. In Tennessee, it is against the law to drive a car while sleeping. In New York, it is against the law for a blind person to drive an automobile. The first known automobile was built in 1668, it was a two foot long steam powered model constructed by Ferdinand Verbiest, a Belgian Jesuit priest. The fastest time for removing a car engine, and replacing it is 42 seconds for a Ford Escort, on 21 November 1985. The first car radio was invented in 1929. The city with the most Rolls Royce's per capital is Hong Kong. The first cars did not have steering wheels. Drivers steered with a lever. The first speeding ticket was issued in 1902. In 1916, 55 percent of the cars in the world were Model T Fords, a record that has never been ...
The British & Irish Lions 2013 tour starts this weekend with a historic match against the Barbarians in Hong Kong. Today we look back to 1977 when the two famous sides met at Twickenham as part of the Queen's Silver Jubilee celebration. Speaking ahead of this weekend's game, Lions centre Jamie Roberts was relishing the occasion. "It's a massive exhibition match for the game of rugby. For probably the two most famous invitational teams in world rugby to come together and play each other is quite unique. It hasn't happened many times in our history, and to have it in a setting such as Hong Kong is going to be amazing. For the rugby watching world, it's such a huge event," said Roberts. In 1977 the two sides came together following the Lions' tour of New Zealand. The match was billed as a charity fund-raiser, and indeed over £100 000 was raised, but it was a serious contest. It was the Lions' first official home match and just three weeks after their 26 match tour, so they were match fit, and at full streng ...

New 'principles' for state authorized killings in Asia Basil Fernando and Bijo Francis     Prohibition of the death penalty is one of the most prominently debated subjects in the world. In the Asia-Pacific region, Australia, Cambodia, East Timor, Hong Kong, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, New Zealand, Nepal, Palau, Philippines, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu and Vanuatu have abolished capital punishment. Out of these countries, Australia, East Timor and New Zealand have ratified the Second Optional Protocol to the International Convention on Civil and Political rights, abolishing the death penalty. Countries like Brunei Darussalam, Burma, Fiji, Laos, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka and Tonga, though they have not abolished capital punishment, do not execute death sentences. China and Singapore ideologically defend the death sentence as a proper punishment. The rest of the countries execute death sentences in what they call 'extremely grave and in the rarest of rare' crimes.     The stand ta ...

Hong Kong's famous skyline was joined by a 54-foot rubber duck on Thursday. The duck, a traveling public exhibit by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman floated into Victoria Harbour with the help of a tugboat. The project has seen giant ducks float into harbors around the world since 2007, stopping by New Zealand, Japan, Germany, Brazil and Netherlands, among others. It's been well-received in Hong Kong, where local papers have been looking out for the oversized inflatable children's toy for weeks. Hofman describes the purpose of the duck as a way to relieve political tensions around the world. According to him, the duck knows no boundaries and "doesn't discriminate." The exhibit will remain on display in the harbor until June 9, 2013. Next stop is an unannounced city in the United States.
Napoleon’s invasion of the Eastern Mediterranean in 1798 provoked a keen interest among the European empires for involvement in that strategic region. Thereafter Britain was especially concerned with that regions’s influence on the link to her Eastern Empire of India, Australia, New Zealand, Ceylon, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaya.  Simultaneously many people believed that the time was drawing near for the restoration of Israel after 1800 years of national dispersion.  Another major event in the Eastern Mediterranean was the Gallipoli campaign of 1915. Concerning this campaign Winston Churchill wrote: “From the uttermost ends of the earth ships and soldiers are approaching or gathering in the Eastern Mediterranean in fulfilment of a destiny as yet not understood by mortal man ... the arrival of the Anzacs in Egypt created the nucleus of the Army needed to attack the heart of the Turkish Empire.” This book describes the significant contribution of the Anzacs in the establishment of modern Israel ...

Membership is divided into numbers proportionate to each of the think tank's three regional areas. The North American continent is represented by 120 members (20 Canadian, 13 Mexican and 87 U.S. citizens). The European group has reached its limit of 170 members from almost every country on the continent; the ceilings for individual countries are 20 for Germany, 18 for France, Italy and the United Kingdom, 12 for Spain and 1–6 for the rest. At first, Asia and Oceania were represented only by Japan. However, in 2000 the Japanese group of 85 members expanded itself, becoming the Pacific Asia group, composed of 117 members: 75 Japanese, 11 South Koreans, 7 Australian and New Zealand citizens, and 15 members from the ASEAN nations (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand). The Pacific Asia group also included 9 members from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Currently, the Trilateral Commission claims "more than 100" Pacific Asian members.[1]
Thou shall not covet ! But Britain coveted N America, part of Middle East, Rhodesia, S Africa, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Malaya, Singapore, Hong Kong, Falkland, Australia, New Zealand etc etc. And you *** British want to tell others what to do ? You British are great sinners, so queen is there in place of king. This is a sign of your past sins. Blame your forefathers for you suffering today, you *** British. And you *** are calling China the aggressive country. China does not covet land only attackers like the Manchus. Gublai Khan and Genghis Khan were Mongolians coveting China and other land. *** coveters are Japan, India, Turkey, Greece and many European countries. So know where you stand, world people ! If you gang up to provoke China, Nature will bash you up. I am the King of all Kings. My words can kill you. Britain coveted lands and Anglican or England churches followed to preach locals. The priests or pastors were sinners not telling the leaders what to do. Instead they preache ...

Asian Stocks Retreat From 18-Month High on Earnings Asian stocks fell, with the regional benchmark index retreating from the highest in 18 months, after profit reports from Rio Tinto Group to Trend Micro Inc. disappointed investors. Rio Tinto declined 2.3 percent in Sydney after the miner reporting its biggest loss in at least 15 years. Trend Micro tumbled 9.4 percent after the anti-virus software maker’s net income fell 23 percent. Auckland International Airport Ltd. slumped the most in four years after a New Zealand pension fund reduced its stake in the nation’s busiest terminal. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index slid 0.4 percent to 133.34 as of 10:02 a.m. in Hong Kong, paring this week’s gain to 0.2 percent. Equity markets in China, Taiwan and Vietnam remain shut today for public holidays. “There is a risk of a correction, but it may be shallow,” said David Cassidy, Sydney-based head of equity strategy at UBS AG. “People aren’t positioned for this rally and they are still scrambling to buy.

IRB ranks Fiji No.2 THE pressure is not off the Digicel Fiji Sevens team despite being seeded the second best for the Rugby World Cup (RWC) 7s in June in Moscow, Russia. So says the Fiji 7s selector and Red Rock coach Lote Rasiga who added the nation was expecting nothing less than a win at the world event to be held from June 28 to 30. International Rugby Board (IRB) confirmed New Zealand as the top seeded team after it accumulated 429 points in the past two IRB 7s series followed by Fiji on 349, South Africa (338), Samoa (324), England (304) and Australia (227).

Air New Zealand to the Cook Islands or Cathy pacific to Hong Kong?
The Greatest Nation on Earth Written by Nonny Mouse from American blog 'Crooks & Liars'. January 12, 2013 12:00 PM We Americans like to think, and in fact have been indoctrinated for decades to believe, that we are the greatest country in the world, the best at just about everything. Sadly, that hasn’t been true for quite some time. Words patriots once gave their lives for, like ‘freedom’... and ‘patriots’... have become almost meaningless. So if you’re curious about who’s taken our crown, you might be surprised. The latest international index of 123 countries released by the Fraser Institute, Canada's leading public policy think-tank, and Germany's Liberales Institut, ranked New Zealand number one for offering the highest level of freedom worldwide, followed by the Netherlands then Hong Kong. Australia, Canada and Ireland tied for fourth spot. The survey measured the degree to which people are free to enjoy classic civil liberties - freedom of speech, religion, individual economic choice, a ...
Hong Kong has a declining birthrate and there are calls to make baby formula a reserve commodity because there are short supplies of major brands thanks to parallel traders selling to the mainland. Hmmm. Anyone know anything about milk futures? Or about mainland investment in New Zealand, Australian or Irish dairies and milk producers? Also, some people chuckled when I reported during Xi Jinping's US visit that on his next stop in Ireland he would be visiting one of the world's larger exporters of powdered milk. Chuckle on.
Finally saying bye to Singapore. Had a good last few days - a tour of the Orchid Gardens, a free tour of the Asian Civilizations Museum, ice-cream at Clark Quay, views to kill from the bar - '1 Altitude' - on the 63rd floor of a Raffles Place tower, Cirque du Soleil in 3D, & a lot of reading. But most important of all was the lovely, enchanting company I had all along - memorable & will be dearly missed. Flying to Hong Kong tomorrow, Wednesday (23 Jan). Then to Philippines on the 26th for 2/3 weeks. While in Hong Kong, may do a few hours in Macau too. After Philippines, I will be back to China/Mongolia for a month or so. Got my New Zealand visa & a free 3-day Australian transit visa here in Singapore. Planning to spend some 3 weeks in NZ & on the way, 3 days in Sydney. Japan & Korea insisted, quite rudely, that I cannot apply for a visa in Singapore unless I resided here. So may try again later in HK/Manila/NZ. Got a new 3-month, multiple-entry visa for Singapore while in Malaysia last week. But somewhat ...
Ecija carabao milk cheese goes international (12/31) DVD Dairy Farm in Talavera has started to export locally made cheese made from carabao's milk. Danilo V. Fausto said his company is slowly exploring the export market by producing mozzarella cheese for restaurants in Hong Kong that employ Filipino chefs. He said his company is competing with marketers from Europe and New Zealand in Hong Kong and Singapore through what he termed as "guerilla operation". Fausto said he ships from 100 to 250 kilos of carabao milk cheese per week which are sold at a fraction of the prevailing price. He said his company could not export more because of acute lack of local raw materials, processing only 25 to 30 percent of its capacity. "We are missing the opportunity," he said. He said the country has only 18,000 carabaos and not all are for milking. He said the country needs three million heads to satisfy the demand, The Philippines imports :P40 billion worth of milk, mostly solids. DVF is npw able to serve only Nueva Ecija ...

Which country has most Economic Freedom? For the 19th year in a row, the Heritage Foundation, a conservative American think tank, has ranked the city of Hong Kong the freest economy in the world. Singapore was a close second, however, followed by Australia and New Zealand. Switzerland was ranked fifth. The U.S., which has the world's largest economy, was ranked 10th while Mainland China -- the world's second largest economy -- was ranked 136th out of 177 economies on the Index of Economic Freedom, a publication co-sponsored by the Wall Street Journal. However, the editors of the index noted that the global average, which peaked in 2008, has been in decline. "The global advance toward Economic Freedom has ground to a halt," the index editors said in a new release. "In the post-Arab Spring Middle East, some democratically elected governments are adopting totalitarian practices reminiscent of revolutionary Iran or the Taliban," Terry Miller, a director at the Heritage Foundation, wrote in the Wall Street Jou ...

Lesson 3: To provide confidence to educators that they are taking the right steps in adopting technology in education, it is good to know that during the last few years, progressive countries in the Asia Pacific region have formulated state policies and strategies to infuse technology in schools. The reason for this move is not difficult to understand since there is now a pervasive awareness that a nation’s socio-economic success in the 21st century is linked to how well it can complete in a global information and communication technology (ICT) region. This imperative among nations has therefore given tremendous responsibilities on educators to create an Educational Technology environment in schools. And since it is understood that the state policies will continue to change, it is helpful to examine prevailing ICT policies and strategies of five progressive states/city, namely New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.

One in six young people are unemployed in Taiwan (China), Hong Kong (China), the Philippines and New Zealand. In Indonesia, the ratio is one in five.

In the Marshall Islands, economically active youth are nearly three times as likely to be unemployed as their adult counterparts" .

"The Heritage Foundation is the most powerful and influential conservative think tank in the country. The concept of the individual health insurance mandate originated in 1989 at the Heritage Foundation, as an alternative to single-payer system and the employer mandate. In 1993, congressional Republicans twice introduced health care bills that contained an individual health insurance mandate, as an alternative to Hillarycare. Interestingly, the Heritage Foundation came out against ACA/Obamacare, citing that it would "destroy jobs and the economy". The Heritage Foundation releases an annual ranking called the Index of Economic Freedom. According to Heritage, the creators of the index took an approach similar to Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations that "basic institutions that protect the liberty of individuals to pursue their own economic interests result in greater prosperity for the larger society." The top 10 countries in the 2012 index in order: Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, ...

So we are here in Orama, right near Port Fitzroy, Great Barrier Island, 60 miles out to sea from Auckland, New Zealand., aka "the uttermost parts of the earth." Walked 5K to the town today, a booming 1 row boat pier, a pub the size of a back yard shed, and a quick mart country store that had... Tim Tams! This place is beautiful, on a cove but it's still winter here, which means I wore my fleece walking down hill and took it off walking up, 50's and 60's. There are about 100 of us here in the school, only about 10 Americans. Lots of Scandanavians, folks from Hong Kong, Aussies, Canadians, Dutch, Brits, Swiss. Still jet lagged, can't sleep. Oh, and zero cell phone service, but we do have internet. Yea. The people are amazing and it's going to be a fantastic 3 months.

Must be nice to be the record or movie industry. Go to the White House, talk to an old friend and tell him you need a favor. This is what followed.“After we received information from an insider we scanned the White House visitor logs for all meetings of Chris Dodd and studio bosses with Joe Biden and Obama,” Dotcom stated. “It is interesting that a man by the name of Mike Ellis of MPA Asia, an extradition expert and former superintendent of the Hong Kong police, was also at a meeting with Dodd, all studio bosses and Joe Biden.
