Big Business, Big Solutions: Encouraging Corporate Social Responsibility Moderator: A. Craig Copetas – Editor at Large, TRT World Ibrahim Eren: General Director and Chairman of TRT World Ilker Ayci: Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee of Turkish Airlines Paul Polak: Founder, CEO, and Board Chairman of Windhorse International Summary: Moderator A. Craig Copetas expanded on the roles big business can play in effecting social development and change: “If you believe human beings are perfectly rational, then they can be left alone to make choices on their own accord; however, if you know that people don’t necessarily behave in their best interests, how do we nudge people to do the right thing?” The panel discussed the need to spend money on humanitarian initiatives, and whether the same structures of ‘return on investment’ still apply. In many ways, the potential impact of social responsibility projects far outweigh the financial costs associated with establishing them. Ilker Ayci emphasised the role Turkish Airlines holds in creating sustainable development and investing in human capital in Somalia. The benefits from such an alliance, and the potential it opens for relationships between the two nations, is paramount. The panel also examined the importance of projects like the World Citizen Initiative, the impact altruism can have on the viewers of honest and human-centric news broadcasting, and the need to give people a chance to mobilise and contribute to social causes. Other topics addressed included the psychology of markets; how do you drive big business to become involved in the community; how do you influence people to do the right thing; and are you willing to endanger your own position to do the right thing?

Credit to RT Play https://www.facebook.com/RTvids/ 'At war with Russia’: EU Parliament approves resolution to counter Russian media ‘propaganda’ MEPs in Strasbourg have voted on a non-legislative resolution which calls for the EU to “respond to information warfare by Russia.” RT and Sputnik news agency are alleged to be among the most dangerous "tools" of "hostile propaganda." The EU Parliament's resolution demonstrates "political degradation" in regard to the "idea of democracy" in the West, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday, commenting on the vote. Putin pointed out that while "everyone tries to lecture" Russia on democracy, European lawmakers themselves resort to a policy of restrictions, "which is not the best way" to deal with any issues. "The best approach is an open discussion, in which bright and solid arguments to support one's point of view should be presented," Putin said. Adding that he hopes the Western move to "counter Russian propaganda" won't lead to serious restrictions, the president congratulated RT and Sputnik journalists on their work. In the Wednesday vote, 304 MEPs supported the resolution based on the report ‘EU strategic communication to counteract propaganda against it by third parties’, with 179 voting against it and 208 abstaining. Read more Members of the European Parliament take part in a voting session at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, November 22, 2016. © Vincent Kessler‘Ridiculous & insane hysteria’: Russia placed alongside ISIS in new EU resolution debated by MEPs Written by a Polish member of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) group, Anna Fotyga, the report alleged that Moscow aims to "distort the truth, provoke doubt, divide the EU and its North American partners, paralyze the decision-making process, discredit the EU institutions and incite fear and uncertainty among EU citizens." The report suggests that Moscow provides financial support to opposition parties and organizations in EU member states, causing disintegration within the bloc. At the same time, Russia is accused of "information warfare," with such entities as RT TV channel, Sputnik news agency, Rossotrudnichestvo federal agency and the Russkiy Mir (Russian World) fund alleged to be among its most threatening propaganda "tools." The document places Russian media organizations alongside terrorist groups such as Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). The report also mentions some "social media and internet trolls" from Russia who are thought to "challenge democratic values." It called for the establishment of measures to tackle the perceived Russian propaganda threat, by means of "investing in awareness raising, education, online and local media." It also suggests stronger cooperation between the EU and NATO "on strategic communication." Sputnik has already appealed to the UN, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and a number of international journalists' organizations and NGOs, including Reporters Without Borders, to take measures to stop what it considers to be interference into freedom of speech in the EU. "The resolution hits straight at a number of respected media, including Sputnik agency, and has an aim to stop their activity in the EU. Moreover, the resolution bluntly contradicts the EU's own human rights and freedom of press norms," reads the letter signed by Sputnik Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan. During the parliamentary debate that preceded the vote, MEPs campaigning for the resolution said the EU was "at war with Russia, on a collision course with each other traveling faster than a jet fighter," and that with an alleged "aim to split Europe, the Kremlin forces its information into our countries." "The report is unjustified, it's not objective and is one-sided," Greek Independent MEP, Notis Marias told RT, adding that the total number of lawmakers who voted against the resolution or abstained from voting shows that "the majority of the MEPs in this house do not actually accept" it. Many of those who supported the document are from eastern Europe, Marias said, while those representing the southern part of the bloc either abstained or voted against it. "I find that the resolution is going the wrong way, because we need to have better relations with Russia, which is better for the European economy, for security and this is the new trend in the United States that we have to take into account," he added. Before the Wednesday vote, the document had been criticized by some MEPs, who called it both "insane" and "ridiculous." The EU "desperately needs an enemy, be it Russia or any other," that it can blame for any of its own failures, French MEP Jean-Luc Schaffhaueser told RT. Spanish MEP Javier Couso Permuy said "it fosters hysteria against Russia," while British MEP James Carver noted the report is "worryingly reminiscent of the Cold War."

CHINA LOOKS FOR NEW WAYS TO HELP RUSSIA IN SYRIA AS U.S. BACKS ISRAEL AGAINST IRAN||World News Radio ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please subscribe us and get the latest World News Radio Alert daily. https://goo.gl/qpkQq5 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- China is looking to expand its support for Russia in Syria's prolonged civil war as regional powers Israel and Iran escalate a long-running feud that threatens to further destabilize the war-ravaged country. Chinese Special Envoy for Syria Xie Xiaoyan told Russian state media on Sunday that he saw opportunities to expand China's role in Syria, where Russia is helping Syrian President Bashar al-Assad overcome rebels and jihadis in the wake of an attempted 2011 uprising backed by the West, Turkey and Arab Gulf states. While China has not played any significant military part in the seven-year conflict, it has supported Moscow and Assad diplomatically and has begun to invest heavily in the reconstruction of Syria. "The relations between China and Russia imply a sweeping strategic partnership and collaboration. We are constantly in touch and conduct consultations. Each side contributes to the Syrian problem's settlement," he said, adding that there was still "huge space" for further cooperation, according to the state-run Tass Russian News Agency. "I assume that both sides should continue assuming efforts in such areas as protection of the ceasefire regime, a responsible ceasefire resolution compliance, promotion of the political process, as well as regarding the issues of postwar recovery," he added. With direct support from Russia and Iran, the Syrian government has recovered much of what it lost in the early years of the war. Only a few pockets of Islamist insurgent control remain and much of the northern part of the country is held by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, which have both fought alongside and against Syrian troops and the various local and regional militias fighting in support of them. As Assad routs the last of Syria's armed opposition, his forces have been increasingly targeted by the West and Israel. The U.S. and its allies have charged Assad with using chemical weapons and, last month, the U.S., France and the U.K. conducted airstrikes against Syrian government targets suspected of being involved in the production of chemical weapons. China joined Russia and Iran in opposing the operation, demanding to first see the results of an investigation by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. China has also aligned itself with Russia in recent clashes that threatened to open up an entirely new and deadly front for the region. Airstrikes widely believed to be from Israel have hit suspected Iranian positions with increased frequency in past months. Israel, which feels threatened by the growing presence of Iran and its paramilitary partners, often refuses to confirm nor deny its role in the attacks, but spoke out after being targeted by a series of retaliatory rocket strikes Wednesday that Israel said was an Iranian attack on its forces in the occupied Golan Heights. This triggered an unprecedented wave of Israeli airstrikes that damaged military infrastructure and killed personnel in Syria. The U.S. has firmly backed Israel in the recent uptick in violence, which occurred shortly after President Donald Trump announced the country's withdrawal from a landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran. Nevertheless, Russia has called for calm and has attempted to mediate in the conflict. Similarly, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang called for Israel and Iran to "stay cool-headed and restrained to jointly uphold regional peace and stability" during a press conference Friday. China's motive for backing supporting Assad in Syria also plays into Chinese President Xi Jinping's vision for the One Belt, One Road project. The initiative seeks to reinvigorate and revamp historic and new trade routes across Asia, Africa and Europe, in which Syria lies on the crossroads. Beijing has branded the Syrian government a viable partner for its future economic goals and pushed a political solution rather a military one for the conflict. China and Russia have also increasingly joined forces in terms of their political and military relations in recent years. Xi and President Vladimir Putin both managed to renew their terms in March and have devoted considerable resources toward modernizing their armed forces and projecting power in regions that the U.S. has also sought to assert its dominance.

245 exhibitors from 21 countries around the globe, more than 12,000 entrances overall during the four days of the show, with 10,653 registered participants and a ‘cream of the crop’ display of technologies and systems over a net occupied surface area of 14,564 square meters. These are the numbers that encapsulate the 2017 edition of Vitrum – the international trade show dedicated to machinery, equipment and special products for flat and hollow glass processing – held October 3-6 at Fiera Milano Rho. This year, the international appeal of the Milanese show was corroborated, above all, by the high percentage of foreign exhibitors (nearly 48%; the other 52% was from Italy). They came from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, the Republic of San Marino, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, the United States, Switzerland and Turkey. Visitors arrived from 86 countries, including all of Europe; North, Central and South America; the Middle and Far East; Asia and Oceania. “Thanks to the proactive support of ITA (Italian Trade Agency), in this ‘year zero’, Vitrum expanded its international reach, confirming that it is ‘everyone’s house of glass’ – remarks Vitrum president, Dino Zandonella Necca – From the earliest organizational phases of the event, our quest to venture further afield, beyond our borders, was empowered through massive communication and promotion programs at leading industry events and many institutional meetings we attended, over the last two years, across Europe and around the world. I am also keen to point out the (entirely spontaneous) contribution made to the success of Vitrum 2017 by international glass industry stakeholders who brought several delegations of industry professionals from their respective countries, along with new ideas and proposals for the future to the show in Milan. Further proof of the efficacy of the partnerships we cultivated with the International Glass Associations”. Another compelling fact is the number of manufacturers on hand at Vitrum 2017 — 186 of them participated in this 20th edition, equal to 76% of all exhibitors. The exhibits themselves were high-performers, featuring high-value displays of machinery, accessories and special products for the processing of Flat Glass and Hollow Glass: “The value was considerable – states Laura Biason, director of Vitrum – because it epitomizes the extraordinary effort invested by the exhibiting companies. Actual production plants were installed for the 4 days of the fair — perfectly functioning, complex solutions that are the utmost expression of the premises behind Industry 4.0, a paradigm our industry had already adopted as its own. The positive feedback from experts and professionals concerning the informative seminars and training events featured at this edition of Vitrum further validated the urgency to continue in this direction. The seminars are much-needed and well-attended opportunities for growth and sharing of information and we intend to expand their scope and contents in the future”. A place for cross-contamination. Technology and Innovation were highlighted in the “Unique Interpretations – Glass Experiences” Area that offered the Vitrum audience a moment of far-reaching cultural reflection. The sophisticated and elegant niche exhibit combined the infinite possibilities of technological innovation with art, craftsmanship and design applied to glass. The valuable works on display won the admiration of visitors and exhibitors alike. “Qualified trade professionals, discerning business prospects: these were the must-haves of the 2017 edition – concludes president Dino Zandonella Necca – And the rave reviews from visitors convinced us of a growing affection for Vitrum, and for the valuable solutions, innovations and expectations for the future it offers”.

Ibrahim Al Hussein beamed with pride and purpose as he carried the flag of the first ever refugee team in to the stadium for the Opening Ceremony of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. Just three years earlier his leg had been blown off in a rocket attack near his home in Syria, beginning a challenging but inspiring journey towards becoming an international swimmer. We passionately believe that sport can provide a vital transition for many more disabled refugees and displaced people. As the lead charity within the Paralympic Movement, we want to quickly build on our practical work in Rwanda's refugee camps as well as the positivity that Ibrahim and his team generated in Rio. Ibrahim’s journey took him via Turkey to a refugee camp near Athens and it is in this region that, with your help, we now want to ensure the success of an exciting and highly necessary project. An innovative, cross-border collaboration will see Greece, Serbia and Cyprus come together, with specialist support from UNHCR and the University of Athens, to deliver Para sport opportunities to some of the 5,000 disabled refugees in the area. Since the start of 2015 it is estimated that 1.3 million people have fled to Europe. We will invest your funds in providing information about Para sport to agencies running the refugee camps; registering refugees, especially children, with impairments; giving refugees the chance to learn about the Paralympic Movement; organising a training camp and growing a network to ensure that refugees with impairments have access to sport programmes and competitions. We want to raise a minimum of EUR 25,000 towards the cost of this project. Any surplus funds raised will go towards supporting the refugee team into 2017, where Ibrahim aims to compete at the World Para Swimming Championships in Mexico and Shahrad Nasajpour at the World Para Athletics Championships in London. Please donate today. Thank you.

Visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Friday, pledging to strengthen party-to-party exchanges between the two countries. Xi stressed that China is ready to strengthen exchanges of experiences on party building with major Bangladeshi parties including the BNP, so as to increase mutual understanding. He also said that, thanks to the joint efforts of the successive governments of the two countries and the two peoples, China-Bangladesh relations have maintained the momentum of fast development. China attaches great importance to relations with Bangladesh, and stands ready to strengthen cooperation with the South Asian country and assist Bangladesh in advancing industrialization, enhancing infrastructure construction, and improving people's livelihood, he said. Xi called on the two sides to expand people-to-people exchanges so as to pass on the friendship to the next generations and open up a broad prospect for the development of China-Bangladesh relations. The Chinese president said that he appreciates that the BNP has maintained a friendly policy towards China for years and actively promoted the development of China-Bangladesh relations. Zia said that the BNP is ready to strengthen communication with the Communist Party of China. China has been one of the closest friends and partners of Bangladesh, she said, adding that she is pleased to see that the two countries have carried out effective cooperation in such areas as energy and infrastructure construction. Zia also spoke highly of the Xi's proposed Belt and Road Initiative, which comprises the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, and is aimed at building a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient trade routes. The BNP, she said, supports Bangladesh in enhancing cooperation with China in the fields of trade and economy, investment, and connectivity construction within the frameworks of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road and the Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar Economic Corridor. Xi arrived in Dhaka earlier in the day for a state visit, the first by a Chinese head of state to the South Asian nation in 30 years.
