The Coal Battle Shifts to Southeast Asia

As China and India shift away from coal, the fight to end use of this dirty fuel is moving south

Coal is on the way out years ahead of schedule in China and India. A recent report by CoalSwarm (an Earth Island Project), Sierra Club, and Greenpeace showed that, in 2016, that Asia’s two fastest growing economies are shutting down mines, scrapping coal plant plans, and building renewables far faster than nearly anyone expected just a few years ago.

Bản thân vốn tự có trên tổng tài sản, tức là tỷ lệ vốn của chủ sở hữu cổ phần ngân hàng, thường rất thấp so với doanh nghiệp phi tài chính. Tỷ lệ vốn tự có của ngân hàng theo khuyến nghị của Ngân hàng Thanh toán Quốc tế (BIS) không nên dưới 8% tổng tài sản. Tuy nhiên có lúc một số ngân hàng Việt Nam chỉ có tỷ lệ 4%.

Photos of the invisible man

May 15, 2013 

In his talk from TED2013, Bolin shares the meaning behind these images — that they are a way to examine the relationship between culture and its development, and to speak for those who are rendered invisible by the Chinese government, by consumer culture or simply by the circumstances of history.

“From the beginning, this series has a protesting, reflective and uncompromising spirit,” says Bolin.  “I think that in art, an artist’s attitude is the most important element. If an artwork is to touch someone, it must be the result of not only technique, but also the artist’s thinking and struggles in life.”

In this talk, Bolin shows us the very first image in the series, taken in November of 2005. He reveals many, many more images too, giving a peak into his process of being painted into the background — which can take anywhere from 3 to 4 hours to 3 to 4 days. The talk ends with a timelapse, showing how Bolin disappeared into the TED stage.

Meanwhile, in this gallery, Bolin shares many more of his fantastical and powerful images.
