    Tim Cook and Apple



    Tim Cook made about 40 million dollars while the company lost 26% of its market value ;you can see easily executive compensation is not properly associated with performance; by the way Apple's board decided this past year to align its CEO's pay with the company's performance.
    But in the market there are far worse cases of CEO's reaping highly excessive compensation while the company stock and fundamentals are going down the drain deeply.
    But Cook collected $1.4 million in salary, a $2.8 million cash bonus and another $36.4 million in stock grants.
    by the way Tim Cook is not an exception in the world of profits of every color .
    But do not forget Apple has the highest cash on hand of any Fortune 500 company ;I hope they have the courage to invest even part of it in many the countries that afforded them to be among the biggest high-tech company in the world .

    Stranded in The Antarctic


    Due to severe weather in the Antarctic a scientific Russian mission ship is now trapped in a real dense pack ice ;this severe weather is hindering rescue efforts to reach this ship ;but An Australian vessel has arrived in to free the Russian Academician (Shokalskiy), which has been stranded since Tuesday.
    But remember ,Earlier rescue attempts by Chinese and French icebreakers were foiled by the thick ice; that means the effort to free this scientific Russian mission ship will not be easy ,as many efforts had fizzled out before ;the risk is not to be able to free them at all ;in this case it will be a blow dealt to scientific mission in risky regions in this planet earth.

    The South Korean culture minister added that the shrine honored the memory of the people who inflicted “indescribable” pain and suffering on Koreans during the 1910-45 occupation of the peninsula; and this controversial visit was a complete provocation.
    In this controversial shrine lay High-ranking officials executed after World War II for committing war crimes against Chinese and south Korean people ;the most degrading of these crimes was the rape of millions of Chinese and south Korean women by Japanese soldiers ,then they consider the women of the enemy as a sexual tools to distract Japanese soldiers .

    Typhoon Haiyan


    Typhoon Haiyan was labeled as the most furious typhoon in this planet earth ,with gust reaching about 300km/h and heavy downpours ,causing damages to many Philippine cites especially Tacloban ,10 million people displaced or homeless .
    The preparation was not complete in Philippines to face this enormous typhoon even developed countries could not do anything to handle this calamity, people don’t have clean water ,food ,the risk of spreading contagious disease is growing ,as many hospitals do not function properly as well as infrastructure .
    The people need urgently sanitary kits, purification kits, and security to avoid violence, robbery and aggression, the Philippine government is mobilizing the army to bring a modicum of security .
