>I wonder if Attila is pure blooded ugoric name.
For the origin of the name usually two views are noted. One it's Germanic origin, from Gothic Atta = father. The other is the Etele/Itil/Etil, which is one of the big rivers in Southern Russia, usually the Volga I think, but maybe the Don (one of the Dons, we went through that topic somewhere else on this board).
One thing what they never consider that maybe Atta is father in Gothic, but atya is father in Hungarian as well (which is an ancient Uralic word, most likely in ata form, perhaps even the name of the river comes from this).

Ata means father in Turkish.

>Etele/Itil/Etil
Yeah, in Turkish we call him Atilla, not Attila. Which is closer to Etilli, ─░tilli etc. Which means from Etil (volga). It is most likely not his real name, rather his cognomen.

Maybe Uralic ata and Turkic one is unrelated, maybe coincidence or.. Atilla is meant to be perfect case for Uralic-Altai language group thesis. it's a mystery

>Ata means father in Turkish.
Oh yes I forgot.
Hence one hypothesis says it's German in origin, and the other Turkish.
Maybe he was born at the Volga. We don't know the extent of the Hun Empire towards the East (they usually just draw the line at the Volga, but the only thing we actually know they crossed it about 370-375). And we even have less idea about it's northern borders.
It seems like Attila's palace in the Carpathian basin was a western "command post" where he directed the campaigns from (where Priscus visited him), and not his capital, which was back somewhere in the Pontic Steppes. Maybe at the Volga, the later Khazar capital.

China thread Bernd 04/19/2020 (Sun) 08:45:55 [Preview] No. 36032 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I'm not an expert on China at all, so half of statements here are assumptions, but I'll try to start.

First the official story about how China became economic powerhouse and pretended to world leadership.

After Mao period with hardcore stalinism and local craziness like Cultural Revolution with destruction of everything or killing sparrows because they are pests, China was in pretty bad economical condition. Government even had no proper statistics about economics, local government official were corrupted and selfish as always, there were food shortage and overall goods deficit - typical for planned economies.

Deng Xiaoping and his political group took control of Communist party, replacing old Mao faction, and started to do economic reforms, program called "reforms and openness". First they took agricultural sector. In 1978-1984 government replaced communes and brigades in agriculture with formally private plots of lands for families and local collectives.

In all parts of economics there was process of decentralization, local management got more freedom, private-like enterprises were allowed in some form. There still was a planned process with mix of fixed and market prices, different types of control from state and other thing, but overall economy moved from planned socialism to state capitalism. Foreign investment was supported, free economic zones were created.

Economy became more market in 1990, when system slowly transformed from plan-market mix to market with heavy government control, without noticeable plan part. Even typical capitalist traits are emerged, like income inequality and liquidation of inefficient, but important factories (that is always a heavy hit to local population).

Yet growth was tremendous. China transformed from mostly agrarian state with ruined economy to industrial and scientific leader. While in 80-90s it was just an outsourcing that was loved by everyone by cheap labor and low bureaucratic restrictions, now it is independent and self-sufficient country that actually competes with "old leaders" even in innovation. And even considering income inequality and some social problems, average Chinese now lives much better than in past. It is hard to compare average numbers like GDP per capita or wage, because China is too large, but there are plenty of places where average wage is already about 1000$. Different sources say that population already have income comparable with EU periphery.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_economic_reform

Actually, it would be better to see someone with Chinese background to discuss this, because China is pretty "closed" to outsiders, but has large amount of historical materials and cultural things that we don't know.

Many western think thanks and news channels are very biased despite being private owned, in fact I can't recall any unbiased one. It's just pot calling kettle black because a particular group makes their propoganda in a less obvious way which is mistaken for "totally not propoganda".

Australia's national broadcaster is actually the least biased Australian media due to the fact that it is state run and therefore not beholden to the support of mining companies or any other company so it will even criticise the government for their close relationship with said mining companies.

Wanted to find a site dedicated to Chinese issues, but from the other side of the fence. My search was unsuccessful. However I figured, the most closely involved countries' papers must have dedicated Chinese blocks, or at least more frequently publish news about China.
Three examples.

https://www.hindustantimes.com/
https://hongkongfp.com/
Beside these it would be nice to find Taiwanese and South Korean news sites in English, maybe from some other countries as well.

The previous thread is at 499 posts, on the brink of autosage. So I open up a new one, because I have a thing to discuss as well with Bernd. But first thing first.

Finally I wanna watch these in their entirety, a series of Japanese films from the 70s The Yakuza Papers or Battles Without Honor And Humanity - which is also the title of the very first one.
I think the first five (what I'm planning on consuming) cover one full story, based on an OG yak's memoirs, published in a newspaper first. Then they made another three in the 70s, all standalone, and three more, two of them in this millennia.
They are in a certain subgenre of yakuza movies, which were fresh breeze at that time with their more realistic narrative and breakup with the "honorable samurai" romanticism of the previous era. They are also filmed in a documentary style, with handheld shaky cameras, and sometimes they even timestamp certain events as the movie plays - as far as I can tell based on the first one which I seen (but will rewatch).

Brand new show is out there (two episodes aired for now it seems), The Republic of Dave Sarah. The cast is properly diverse, with a story dominated by stronk women, but the premise of story made me thought this might be worth a look (I haven't yet).
So the background is that a small town just at the border of Canada and the US lays on an area which isn't really claimed by either country, and the residents want to stop some evil company to do drilling for some resource there, exploiting this particular detail.
Maybe it would be better as a comedy, but they made a drama. We'll see.

I'll play advocatus diaboli.

Human life matters far more than biomass and forest coverage statistics. Non-human life is less valuable than ours and is under our administration; it is ours to use for the betterment of our species. Of course, as responsible stewards it is our duty to make use of it carefully so future generations won't be deprived by overuse. And as sensitive stewards we can appreciate the beauty of nature and recognize that some non-human life can feel pain, and adjust our rule over nature accordingly. But the life of some common tree is not worth more than the life of a human; it is not even worth the same.

You can cut down thousands and thousands of square km of virgin Amazon land and you'll still have enough untouched rainforest for every purpose you can think of. The new open spaces have housed wave after wave of settlers adding up to a population in the millions with major urban centers housing international airports and industry. Further south, the acidic soil of the central South American savannah was defeated and its neverending empty flatlands were turned into a global-level breadbasket with several neatly planned cities, a victory of willpower and reason over vacuum.
If not for deforestation, most of those settlers would now live in overcrowded eastern slums. Is that really a better way of life than living as a pioneer in a plot of deforested land? Millions of Europeans left their overcrowded continent to build something new on the other side of the Atlantic for similar reasons, and the conquest of the Amazon repeats this on a smaller scale.

And then there's the problem of national sovereignty. Would you feel comfortable with a sparsely populated porous border thousands of km long with several unstable states? That's what the northern border is. FARC guerillas have crossed into Brazilian territory before. Only a populated Amazon guarantees a safe border.

"It's all greed", you might say. It is true that greed is not the ideal driving impulse for the conquest of virgin land, and sadly it's a driving force. But the economic use of conquered land is not evil per se. It is easy to think so in a Scandinavian country where further economic growth brings little improvement to collective and individual well-being. But that does not mean material prosperity is unrelated to happiness. It just has diminishing returns. As an undeveloped state we are still at a point where economic expansion can have social/imaterial benefits. And within a globalized economy, exporting raw materials and the services and industrial goods produced within the cleared space contributes to overall prosperity, allows other undeveloped states to have their own improvements and, through trade, creates relations of interdependency which bring countries closer together and contribute to global peace.

It would but there isn't. There is coke, which is made from mineral coal (but mineral coal is also just dead vegetation and animals). They use a bio- prefix to signal it's "healthy". If they would say char, they hype will be less.
Maybe there are different processes to make char, like when one in his backyard slowly smolders a bunch of waste from his garden, or I can imagine "factory made" charcoal, liek putting them into some container which gets heated up enough to turn the wood and stuff into charcoal. But how the end product would differ? And then would the second version be cost effective (one needs energy to heat up something, that needs fuel, with the first method the thing heats itself). Well they probably could sell it for horrible prices (and regulate to death the sale of "home made" char, to kill competition).

Oh no, I mean for the letters used to represent sounds when the language is typed/written.
For example, if a word includes a "TH" sound, such as the one used in "that", it would be written with an IPA "├░"
