Landlocked countries are particularly reliant on neighbors for getting goods in and out. In Central Asian countries such as Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, that means being dependent on Russia. Some newly proposed railway routes, though, could do away with that. One line would link Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan with China. That could be a big loss for Russia and its influence in the region and potentially a big win for China. At the moment, Central Asia does have some railway links to the outside world, but they were mostly built by the Russians, either an imperial times or when Central Asia was part of the Soviet Union. And their links to each other within Central Asia are not particularly good. Jeremy page is The Economist's Asia diplomatic editor. At the moment, the major freight route between China and Europe goes from China via Kazakhstan and then through Russia. And that's become a pretty important conduit for trade in recent years. And it now carries the vast majority of China's railway trade with Europe, which was about 8 billion dollars in 2016, and it's gone up to 75 billion as of 2021. But this new line would open up a new route from China to Europe. First, going through Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan and then passing through Turkmenistan Iran and turkey and on two western markets. And not only would that shorten the journey by some 900 kilometers and about 8 days. But perhaps more importantly, it would completely skirt Russia. That's important because of the sanctions regime that Russia is under? Exactly. So Russia has become much harder to move goods across in the last few months, largely because of the sanctions imposed by western governments following Vladimir Putin's division of Ukraine. And that has caused a lot of uncertainty, particularly among European freight forwarders. And so they have switched a lot of them have switched to a slower and more expensive hybrid rail and sea routes whereby goods cross the Caspian Sea by ship, do the rest of the journey by rail, but they have to be loaded onto ships for that section in order to bypass Russia. So this new route via Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan will provide an alternative, which is still cost effective, completely non Russian, rail only, and would be equally effective in moving cuts between China and Europe. And this would be especially beneficial for China as it would give it a chance to diversify those railway trade routes and make sure that it can maintain sustainable rail trades with Europe regardless of the situation in Russia. And presumably it would also bring some benefits to the countries that this new route runs through. That's right. There is great hope, particularly in Kyrgyzstan that this line will bring them some economic benefits. So for example, I spoke with the transport minister of Kyrgyzstan and who estimates that this new railway link would carry it between 7 and 13 million tons of cargo a year, most of that would be bound for other places, but Kyrgyzstan would get significant transit fees from that, and he thinks that those transit fees combined with taxes and the jobs generated by the railway would give Kyrgyzstan quite a significant economic boost. And that's important for a country like which is a former Soviet country. It's extremely remote and its population 6.7 million depends very heavily at the moment on remittances from migrant workers in Russia. So this would give them an alternative source of income, but it would also help to reduce their dependence on Russian. But the Russian question aside, given all those benefits potentially on offer, why hasn't this kind of root been proposed before now? Well, it has to be talked about for a long time, plans were first drawn up as early as 1997, but they kept on running into the same kind of roadblocks. We disagreements between China and Kyrgyzstan over the route and the costs China basically wanted the quickest, shortest route possible to get to Europe and Kyrgyzstan wanted it to stop off at more places within Kyrgyzstan, so it could serve more of its population. So that was one problem, then there were also differences over where to switch the gauge because China and Europe use track that's 1.435 meters wide. Whereas the Soviet Union, the former Soviet Union, uses 1.52 meter standard. So that was another point of contention. So basically the idea was repeatedly shelved because of those and other differences. But now it's getting a new push. Partly because it seems to make more commercial sense, given the expansion of railway trade between China and Europe and partly because of this desire to become less dependent on Russia. And so they've managed to work out those long-standing differences in the end. It seems so. The transport minister of Kyrgyzstan told me that there wasn't agreement on the route between China Kyrgyzstan Uzbekistan, they had agreed on where to change the gauge of the track and they'd agreed on a divisional budget of $4.1 billion. So on paper at least it looks like it's going ahead. Geological surveys have started, they started in August, a group of Chinese experts arrived in Kyrgyzstan to do them. And feasibility study will be finished by March. That said, there are some major challenges ahead, particularly on the financing front, the president of Uzbekistan is also promoting another very ambitious railway project, which would build a line down from Uzbekistan through Afghanistan to Pakistan, which has been estimated to cost about $4.8 billion. And there is a fair degree of skepticism among diplomats and regional experts about whether these governments can really raise the funding for either of these railways. But that does seem to be real momentum, particularly behind the trans Kyrgyzstan railway. And if either of these does actually become a reality, it really will be a very important step towards improving connectivity within the region and reducing its reliance on Russia. Thanks very much for your time, Jeremy. Thank

"Msci's banner quick All right arrow. Here we go here. We go Wittingly okay the broader hacking campaign compromise dozens of federal agencies defense contractors financial institutions among other sectors and was discovered in late april. It's chinese government routinely denies carrying out hacking operations. It is unclear why the ncaa was a target of the campaign. but investigators has several theories. one focuses on china's push to dominate the multi-billion billion dollar market for railcars in effort that could benefit from knowing more about the inner workings of a transit system that awards lucrative contracts in recent years. China has used cyber-attacks as way to to advance its economy and become the dominant global superpower according to the justice department. None of them. Warm benign view. Is that hackers mistakenly entered the mta system and discovered it was a little interest which cybersecurity experts say is not unusual in any event. The hackers did not make any changes to the agents. Agency's operations collect any employee or customer information like credit card numbers or compromise. Any empty accounts transit officials said citing a resin audit of the attack commissioned by the agency and conducted by ibm and mandaeans leading cybersecurity. Far young ta's existing multi layer security systems worked as a design preventing spread of the attack said refill port partner courtney. The mta chief technology officer. We continue destroying these. Comprehensive systems and remain vigilant as cyber attacks are a growing global threat. A spokesman for the department of homeland security which is investigating breach. Declined to comment de intrusion. Is the latest in esscalation cyber attacks against american transit agencies most of which are financially strapped and can usually only afford basic cyber security protections a study last year by the mineta transportation institute a research organization found that while over eighty percent of transportation agencies surveyed believed. They were prepared to manage cyber security threats. Only sixty percent had a cybersecurity plan in place. A lot of transit agencies. Don't have chief security officers much less cyber security officer. Who says scott belcher a consultant specializing in transportation technology who led the study a ransom where attack on the san francisco municipal transportation agency. Twenty sixteen disrupted ticketing systems forcing the agency to provide free service for three days in texas for worth region. Regional transportation agency lost access to its.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars in forensic analysis at the breaches were identified. Initially you might think the biggest risk is stuff you see in movies. Somebody taking over a bus remotely or taking over a train remotely and putting the passengers at rhys belcher said but recovering from the attacks is expensive. Which is self puts their ability to operate at risk d attack against the ncaa also comes amid growing concerns about the state own china railway rolling stock corporation. The world's largest train car producer which has aggressively pursued contracts to build rail yards for major cities. The company has won contracts in cities including boston chicago los angeles philadelphia many competitor competitors believed by underbidding competitors using state funds to underwrite the cost. The chinese corporation has never produced railcars for new york's transit agency transit officials say but it was a winner of mta challenge in twenty eighteen. Really there was anti a challenge. I got to look into that later. Soliciting ideas for upgrading.

"All that jazz 88 88 ask Leo 8888275536. If you want to talk, I Tech With me. We get a lot of calls. We did actually. Last year towards the end of the year because people had seen that adobe flash was going away. You know, that's the technology that gave you dancing monkeys on the Internet for so many years. In fact, when, when you took first started out the videos on YouTube were in flash. But Adobe, uh, kind of ran into some headwinds with flash. For one thing. It was Kind of notoriously insecure people had all sorts of security issues with it. But for another thing, Apple Steve Jobs who kind of had an ax to grind with the Dhobi for other reasons. Published a open letter on the front page of apple dot com Way back in 2010 saying We're not gonna support flash on our iPhones or on ipads because we don't like it. It's zah pig. It's slow. That was 10 years ago took 10 years to finally kill flashing. December, 31st. Flash went away. Adobe stopped using it and we had a lot of calls to people. Then what am I gonna do? What? My my website is gonna work and my game and I think by now you probably it's only the oldest sites sites that I haven't been updated in years. They're still using flash. And frankly, those probably won't ever be updated their abandoned where Most sites. I mean YouTube stopped using flash years ago. Funny story, though. There's a railway system in northern China doll, Leon It was running on flash the whole railway system. They've known we've known since 2017. The flash was going away. But apparently whoever is running this railway system, the China Railway Shenyang Wasn't paying attention. Uh, By the way, I flashes a programming language. I guess you could do things like run a railway on it. I wouldn't want Oh, but you could So the for 20 hours. The railroads in Dolly on and Leon Ng province in China. Northern China. Weren't running. Staffers couldn't view train operating diagrams. They couldn't Set up scheduling. They couldn't arrange shutting. Basically, everything stopped. Had they fix it. They got a Pirated version of flash and install it for 30 in the morning, everything started working again. Uh um. That's probably the most extreme example of were not given up flash ever. Right. They're running a Pirated version. Of flash. Oh, my back to the phones. We go. Jesse, Ontario, California Hi Jesse Leo Laporte The Tecca. Hello. Look. Hey, you're on the air. Hi. I'm sorry. Did I say Jesse? Jose? I mis read that. I apologize. Hi, Jose. No problem. Thanks for taking my call. Leo. My pleasure problem. Um, I was working on the project first. Work and I finished my project close to computer computer. Uh, went to work the next day says I've been blocked off Google now. I Oh, no. I work at a school where they used Chromebooks.

I mean, I can go to my desktop that I haven't another room. I can access Google. I can go with that computer. The first thing to do is make sure that computer's time and date is correct. Um, can you Oh, Okay, let's see well. 1970. You've got a problem. So the reason that's important It's sometimes this happens with computers. You know, they forget what time and date it is usually because the battery that backs that stuff up is old and has failed. If the time and date is wrong. Certificates. That verify that you're on the right site won't work because they are approved for a certain period of time.

When is 10? 88 Windows eight could be part of the problem. That could be part of the problem. Uh, so, uh, yeah. I mean, I don't think end of life of Windows eight would have would do this, but that that could be part of the problem. Um I would Um Keep going. E guess you go into safe mode, maybe, and see if things are working better. There do safe mode with networking. So that you can Try. Your browser will look awful, You know, because it's safe mode turns off all the drivers. One of the thing. It'll turn off any bad background security software as well.

That. Excuse me. That's far as I know that's the only Yes or something. Security. I have things messed stop. Obviously, with your Internet access one thing you could tries its windows..

"china railway" Discussed on KOA 850 AM

"Photography, smartphones smartwatches. All that jazz 88 88 ask Leo 8888275536. If you want to talk, I Tech With me. We get a lot of calls We did actually last year towards the end of the year because people had seen that Adobe flash was going away. You know, that's the technology that gave you dancing monkeys on the Internet for so many years. In fact, When when you took first started out the videos and you two were in flash, but Adobe kind of ran into some headwinds with flash. For one thing, it was Kind of notoriously insecure people had all sorts of security issues with it. But for another thing, Apple Steve Jobs who kind of had an ax to grind with Adobe, for other reasons. Published a open letter on the front page of apple dot com Way back and 2010 saying We're not gonna support flash on our iPhones or an iPad because we don't like it. It's zah pig. It's slow. That was 10 years ago took 10 years to finally kill flashing. December, 31st. Flash went away. They'll be stopped using it and we had a lot of calls to people said What am I gonna do? What My my website is gonna work and my game and I think by now you probably it's only the oldest sites sites that I haven't been updated in years. They're still using flash. And frankly, those probably won't ever be updated their abandoned where Most sites. I mean YouTube stopped using flash years ago. Funny story, though. Uh, there's a railway system in northern China doll, Leon. It was running on flash the whole railway system. They've known we've known since 2017 the flashes going away, but apparently whoever is running this railway system, the China Railway Shenyang Wasn't paying attention. Uh, By the way, I flashes a programming language. I guess you could do things like run a railway on it. I wouldn't want to, but you could. So the for 20 hours. The railroads in Dolly on and loud Ning province in China. Northern China. Weren't running. Staffers couldn't view train operating diagrams. They couldn't Set up scheduling. They couldn't arrange shutting. Basically, everything stopped. Had they fix it. They got a Pirated version of flash and installed at 4 30 in the morning, Everything started working again. Uh um. That's probably the most extreme example of were not given up flash ever. Right there right in the Pirated version. Of flash. Oh, my Back to the phones. We go. Jesse, Ontario, California. Hi Jesse Leo Laporte, The tech guy Hello. Look. Hey, you're on the air. Hi. Oh, I'm sorry. Did I say Jesse? Jose? I mis read that. I apologize. Hi, Jose. No problem. Thanks for taking my call Leo. My pleasure problem. Um, I was working on the project first or work, and I finished my project close to computer Computer authority The next day says I've been blocked off Google. No, no, no. I work at a school where they used Chromebooks. But because of the audio and video, I used my personal laptop, which which doesn't have the problems that the Chromebooks we're having. The problem is that all of a sudden I can't access group. So the thing you were working on was in Google docks. In your account, and they've kicked you off of Google. Do you know why did they give you a reason? No. Well it first, The two met two messages pop up, one says Firewall, blah, blah, blah and the real quick it only it's only up for just like two seconds. And so I made sure that all my, you know defenders off, he said is off. VPN is off. And it still won't allow me. I try toe do updates on the set and they can't connect because there's no Internet, it says. My systems appears to be configured correctly. But for some reason, Google isn't Isn't going to happen. So it's not that Google is not letting you log in. Necessarily. Could you check your Gmail? No. Can't do that. Either. Can't do anything with Google. I mean, I can go to my desktop that I haven't another room. I can access Google. I can go. It's that it's that computer. The first thing to do is make sure that computer's time and date is correct. Um yeah. Okay, let's see Well is its 1970. You've got a problem. So the reason that's important. Sometimes this happens with computers. You know, they forget what time of day it is usually because the battery that backs that stuff up is old and has failed. If the time and date is wrong. Certificates. That verify that you're on the right site won't work because they are approved for a certain period of time. Usually, actually now, from now on, it'll be one year, but even at most five years And when your clock fails, it goes way back in on early DOS machines went to 1904 units machines, He goes back to 1970. So check it is your time and date correct. It says General 24th. Okay, 2021. Okay, So it's not that that's always the first thing to check and everybody listening. Keep that in the back of your mind. If all of a sudden the Internet stops working that zoo often why s Oh, that's not it is. If you are on that machine, your browser, can you go to other sites and log in and use them normally? No, it is. I tried going on tucked up. Go. Okay. Box? Nothing. Okay. Seems okay. So here's the good news. You haven't lost anything. It's just that computer. Yeah, I was getting worried because I hate it when you work on a project for hours And then suddenly you can't access that is gone. And it is, you know, it's probably good a little warning. That you know when you're using Google or Facebook, or, you know somebody else's You know system. Those are all very nice and convenient this class systems, But it can happen that your account for whatever reason gets canceled doesn't happen that often. But if it did, and it was an error, you would lose access to whatever stored in that cloud, So it's always good to Put stuff in, you know, more than one place. Uh, this is just this computer, and it does sound like sounds like you had a lot of security software running on that computer. Yeah, that sounds like that might be related to the issue. So I turned it off. You've turned off all the security software. Tell me what you've got right? He said a VPN and he said the anti virus had he set on the head of VPN. And then I never turned on defender and that Excuse me. That's far as I know that the only Yes or something security. I have this mess. Stop. Obviously, with your Internet access one thing you could try. Windows. Yeah. When is 10? 88 when I was eight could be part of the problem. That could be part of the problem. Uh, so, yeah. I mean, I don't think end of life of Windows eight would have would do this, but that that could be part of the problem. Um I would Um You could go into e guess you go into safe mode, maybe, and see if things are working better. There do safe mode with networking. So that you can Try. Your browser will look awful, You know, because it's safe mode turns off all the drivers. One of the thing. It'll turn off any background security software as well. OK, so I would try safe mode with networking. See if it's all working. They're, um so you know, you shut down completely. Hold down the shift key and then turn the machine on and keep holding the shift Key until you get that boot menu and then choose a safe mode with networking. Um okay. I think that I don't. I would say that that's something going on. Obviously, with your network stack. It could be. It's very common Security software does this It's one of the reasons I don't recommend Third party security software most of the time. The good news is you haven't lost anything. In fact, this is one of the advantages of working in Google. You go to that other computer log into your Google account. There's there's what you were working on. So that's a relief. It just sounds like that machines messed up and, you know, ultimately One of the things you might want to do is.

China Treats People Deemed Vulnerable With Experimental Coronavirus Vaccine

"China, hundreds of thousands of people have already gotten shots of the vaccine is being developed Their NPR China correspondents Emily Fang and John Ruit, take a look at why China's pressing ahead on what's at stake. On a chilly morning earlier this November. Hundreds of people line up and wait for their names to be called summer from the state owned China Railway Group are waiting to get their second shot of an experimental Corona virus vaccine produced by Sina Farm. China's biggest state on vaccine maker. We'll pay you as a China railway construction worker about to be sent abroad for a project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, qualifying him for a vaccine. Don't worry. There is no problem at all. Lots of our colleagues have a shot very early as early as July. They had no problems whatsoever for cool access to a Corona virus vaccine, albeit one without regulatory approval and which is still undergoing the last phase of human trials. Is a perk that comes with a state job. Your company is giving a guarantee of safety in exchange for sending you abroad after all, if you don't have your health Who cares how much money you earn of the hundreds of thousands now inoculated 56,000 vaccinated people have already gone abroad, but deploying unproven vaccines carries huge risks. For one, China's covert 19 vaccines target the disease. The vaccination prevents bad outcomes from infection, but it may not prevent infection itself. That's Jerome Kim, director general of the International Vaccine Institute in Seoul, South Korea, and that could mean that a person could still transmit the virus after they've been vaccinated. The worry is that vaccinations will give people who've had them a sense of invincibility. And that could actually help spread the virus. There may also be unexpected reactions to the unproven vaccines or late complications. China justifies the experimental vaccines for what it calls emergency use. Shot into the arms of people deemed vulnerable to Cove it such as frontline medical workers and critical service providers at home. China has four experimental vaccines now going through the last phase of human trials sign a farm in sign of AC are two of the major contenders and they make the vaccines being used on an emergency basis. Tinge away a director. China's CDC, speaking in November, said this was a necessary measure Number woman she won't call it. The decision to approve emergency use came after rounds and rounds of strict debate in evaluation after relatives show regulations were fulfilled What Jim did not specify how the emergency vaccines are being distributed. At the vaccination site in Beijing, NPR met a wide range of people who were lining up to get a job. They included dozens of state employees such as white collar bureaucrats and office workers, with no plans to travel abroad. And even a Peking duck cook at a state owned restaurant chain, a Peking duck cook. It's inoculations like these that have some observers concerned. Indonesian researches molecular virology at Hong Kong University. There is no emergency in China because there are basically zero confirmed cases over many months already in China, rolling out vaccines without all the data is a gamble for China. Already a string of quality scandals over the years has people inside the country and out skittish about made in China vaccines. If something goes wrong with these vaccines, it would be a PR disaster. Again Hong Kong University's Jin If they choose to do this, shock her and they ruin the reputation that will just make things worse. And no one there to use a Chinese waxing anymore.
