VOA Boosts Broadcasts to Burundi as Civilians Flee Political
Violence

Voice of America press release
May 11, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Voice of America today began boosting
broadcasts to Burundi where at least 14 people have been and
killed and more than 200 injured in protests against President
Pierre Nkurunziza running for a third term.

VOA has additional shortwave and FM broadcasts in Kirundi,
Kinyarwanda, Kiswahili, French, and English with an expanded
call-in show, more reporting from the ground, and new drive-time
newscasts.

"At this critical moment for democracy in Burundi, we are
stepping up to keep our audiences informed," says VOA Director
David Ensor. "Voters deserve to know what is going on with
presidential elections just one month away."

The African Union and the United States say the Nkurunziza
candidacy violates a regional peace deal that ended civil war in
2005. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says the president's
move "flies directly in the face of the constitution of his
country."

President Nkurunziza says he is exempt from the two-term limit
because his first term was chosen by parliament.

VOA is one of the last remaining sources of news in Burundi after
authorities blocked access to social media, closed Radio Publique
Africane, and suspended relay transmissions for two other
independently owned stations -- Bonesha FM and Isanganiro.

The Committee to Protect Journalists condemns this harassment and
says the Nkurunziza government is "blatantly trying to gag"
coverage of its opponents.

VOA is adding reporters in Burundi and Rwanda along with
additional staff in Washington D.C., where its U.S.
government-funded transmissions originate.

Daily broadcasts air on 95.2 FM and 94.9 FM in Bujumbura and on
104.3 FM in Kigali.

There are new VOA shortwave broadcasts from 04:00 to 05:30 UTC
and from 19:30 to 20:00 UTC on 7350 kHz, 9815 kHz, and 11905 kHz;
and from 16:00 to 16:30 UTC on 13630 kHz, 15460 kHz, and 17530
kHz.

"With thousands of Burundians fleeing to neighboring Rwanda,
Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo, VOA is committed
to providing accurate and reliable news to this critical region,"
says Ensor.

Report: Proper Forest Management Is a Key to Feeding Planet

Rosanne Skirble
May 12, 2015

Forests can help to reduce hunger and improve nutrition for
millions of people, according to a major report released at the
United Nations.

The world population is expected to climb to 9 billion by 2050.
By that time the demand for food will double. Accommodating
those future needs is a concern today, especially for the more
than 800 million people who go to bed hungry.

In its report, the International Union of Forest Research
Organizations (IUFRO), the world's largest network of forest
scientists, notes that healthy forests provide half the fresh
fruit we consume. They produce valuable commodities like coffee,
avocados, cashews and other seeds popular on the world market.

The products are also rich in vitamins, proteins and other
nutrients. The iron content of dried seeds of the African locust
bean and raw cashew nut are comparable with, or even higher than,
that of chicken meat, the report says.

Tree foods can also be a safety net for people living in and
around the forest, said Bhaskar Vira, director of the University
of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute and chairman of the
IUFRO panel that wrote the report.

He compared it to an insurance policy. "Having access to
tree-based foods is hugely important when you can't buy food from
other sources or when you can't produce food because your fields
have failed," he said.

Complementary activities

Yet agriculture is a major driver of deforestation. Vira said the
two can co-exist, even complement each other, if managed
properly.

"The neglect of those forest foods is one of the reasons why
people are willing to clear them and convert them over to
agriculture," he said. "We are arguing that you should think
about that landscape as a much more integrated production
landscape."

Agricultural yields in one place, Vira added, can free up other
areas to retain trees and the products and services they provide.

What keeps people hungry is often not lack of food, but lack of
access to that food and control over its production, Vira said.
"When people have greater control over the resources, forest
health, its economic value and the lives of the people improve,"
he said.

Take, for example, the locally managed agro-forestry project in
Ghana where people hope to reap profits from Allanblackia, a
fruit-bearing plant. The oil from its seed can be used in soaps,
beauty products and food. According to project coordinator Okai
Michael Henchard, communities "get additional income. They get
trees on their land. It provides shade to [understory crops] and
then collectively we restore the land."

"Allanblackia also sequesters carbon," he added, "so it is
helping to fight climate change."

'Vigilant' about resource use

Vira cautioned that overharvest can bring ruin. "We don't want to
be in a situation where we are overexploiting this resource and
then reducing its long-term sustainability," he said. "So we have
to be quite vigilant, especially when you get market value
imposed on these commodities and the desire for short-term
profitability sometimes competing with the long-term
sustainability of the resource."

The report underscores the importance of reimagining forested and
agricultural landscapes through careful management and good
governance. Vira said that approach, if done right, can help
alleviate hunger and poverty worldwide.

Sixty scientists from around the world collaborated on the
publication, Forests, Trees, Landscapes for Food Security and
Nutrition, A Global Access Report.

Crews Searching for Missing Malaysia Plane Find Shipwreck

Associated Press via voanews.com
May 13, 2015

Search crews hunting for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in the
desolate waters off western Australia have discovered a
shipwreck, officials said Wednesday.

The unexpected finding came when sonar equipment on board a
search vessel scouring the Indian Ocean for the missing jetliner
detected a cluster of objects nearly 4 kilometers (2.5 miles)
below the surface, according to a statement from the Australian
Transport Safety Bureau, which is heading up the hunt.

Although officials suspected the objects were probably not from
the Boeing 777, which vanished on March 8, 2014, they decided to
take a closer look just in case. A second ship sent down an
autonomous underwater vehicle _ essentially, an unmanned sub _
which revealed a large number of small objects and several larger
items, the biggest 6 meters (20 feet) long.

The debris field appeared to be man-made, but wasn't typical of
an aircraft. Still, crews sent down a camera to be sure.

Analysis of the photos revealed this week that the debris came
from a previously uncharted shipwreck. Marine archaeologists are
now examining the photos, which include an image of an anchor and
what appear to be lumps of coal, to see whether they can identify
the ship. It was not immediately clear when the sonar first
spotted the wreckage.

"It's a fascinating find, but it's not what we're looking for,"
Peter Foley, the ATSB's Director of the Operational Search for
Flight 370, said in a statement. "We're not pausing in the search
for MH370, in fact the vessels have already moved on to continue
the mission."

Michael McCarthy, a senior maritime archaeologist at the West
Australian Maritime Museum, said the wreck was of a cargo ship
built in the mid-to-late 19th century, and could be one of
hundreds lost during voyages across the Indian Ocean.

"We've got quite a lot of stories about ships that sank in the
Indian Ocean mid-voyage and you would be struggling to tell which
is which unless you had a complete catalogue of all the ones
lost," he said.

Experts had predicted Flight 370 search crews would probably
stumble across the wreckage of some ships, given that they once
sank regularly due to old age or bad weather, McCarthy said. But
it would be difficulty to identify this particular wreck without
getting a closer look and knowing which ports it was traveling
between, he said.

"Being a fairly common type of cargo ship from the 19th century
with no obvious cargo remains there, I doubt that anyone would
pay the enormous cost of going down to look at it," McCarthy
said.

Last month, officials announced that they would expand the search
area for Flight 370 by another 60,000 square kilometers (23,000
square miles) in the Indian Ocean if the plane is not found by
the end of May. Crews have now covered 75 percent of the original
search area and have already moved into the southern portion of
the expanded search zone to take advantage of the last dregs of
decent weather before winter sets in.

One of the four search vessels, which has the autonomous
underwater vehicle on board, has withdrawn from the hunt because
the worsening weather has made it too difficult for crews to
launch the sub.

Chinese Investors Flood US Entrepreneur Visa Program

Shannon Van Sant
May 14, 2015

HONG KONG - The huge demand from wealthy Chinese citizens for
U.S. investor visas has resulted in a shortage and a two-to-three
year waiting list for many of those applying.

The supply of, and demand for, U.S. investor visas track how
China's newly wealthy are eagerly pursuing U.S. visas.

Congress created the so-called EB-5 visa program in 1990 as a way
to give foreign entrepreneurs the opportunity to live and work in
the United States by investing in American businesses. The
program allows wealthy investors to bypass the sometimes
years-long wait that is normally required for gaining a visa
through an American relative or employer.

Gaining a visa broadly requires foreigners to invest in a
business that either creates or saves 10 jobs in the United
States. The entrepreneurs must invest at least $1 million, or
$500,000 if the business is located in certain rural areas or
places of high unemployment. By doing so, the investor can gain a
"green card," which is a document granting permanent residence.

Over the program's first 24 years, the number of visas granted
never reached its annual limit of 10,000. That all changed in
2014, with a surge of applications from Chinese citizens. That
year they accounted for about 85 percent of all visas granted.

Bernard Wolfsdorf is founder of the Wolfsdorf Immigration Law
Group in Los Angeles. "I don't think any country has experienced
the sort of meteoric rise in income that the Chinese have. So
very few people can invest a half million dollars for a green
card without blinking like the Chinese folks can," said
Wolfsdorf.

The flood of applications from mainland Chinese continued in
2015. That led U.S. officials to declare that starting this
month, for Chinese investors, the program is only considering
applications from investors who had applied by May 1, 2013.
Applicants from other nations or from Hong Kong, Taiwan, or
Macau, are not affected.

The rise in applications has been attributed to worsening
pollution, China's tightening political climate, or better
education opportunities at American universities.

Jean Francois Harvey, an immigration lawyer in Hong Kong, said
many are also lured by the old fashioned American dream.

"What we find fascinating here as a firm is to see how strong
this American dream concept still is internationally. We do meet
clients, their kids are already in the U.S., at Ivy League
schools, but they want to be part of this U.S. dream," said
Harvey.

For American cities, wealthy Chinese offer a new source of local
investment and job creation. Billions of dollars in new
investment are credited to the program, which supporters of the
program say make it an important tool for boosting the economy –
especially in rural or low-income areas. Several large
real-estate development projects have included funds from EB-5
investors. Critics say that the program is merely selling visas
to the wealthy, without a larger economic impact.

Nevertheless, Audrey Singer of the Brookings Institution said
American cities are in fierce competition to lure rich Chinese
immigrants. The EB-5 visa program has led to the creation of new
regional centers, which help pool investors' money into larger
development projects that meet the requirements for an EB-5 visa.
The centers are managed by outside companies and assume the
responsibility for creating the jobs required to qualify for the
visa.

"One of the most interesting things for us is the proliferation
of the regional centers, those are the entities that bundle the
EB 5 investment money. When I started working on that project
that resulted in the Brookings paper, there were a little over
200 regional centers. Just five years before, there were about a
dozen. And now there are over 600," said Singer.

Now there is a two-to-three year waiting list for Chinese
attempting to emigrate to the United States through the EB-5
program and 13,000 total pending applications from all countries
for the visa program.
