WEBSITE: horsethatleaps.com BUY FOR 37% OFF tinyurl.com A TALE OF ESPIONAGE, THE SILK ROAD AND THE RISE OF MODERN CHINA Two epic journeys along the Silk Road -- past and present -- offer a riveting and cautionary tale about the breathtaking rise of modern China. On July 6, 1906, Baron Gustaf Mannerheim—who decades later became the President of Finland—boarded the midnight train from St. Petersburg, charged by Tsar Nicholas II to secretly collect intelligence on the Qing Dynasty's sweeping reforms that were radically transforming China. The last Tsarist agent in the so-called Great Game, Mannerheim chronicled almost every facet of China's modernization, from reform of education, foreign investment and industry to the military, Muslim borderlands and Tibet's struggle for independence. On July 6, 2006, writer Eric Enno Tamm boarded that same train, intent on following in Mannerheim's footsteps. Initially banned from China, Tamm devises a cover and retraces Mannerheim's route across the Silk Road, discovering both eerie similarities and seismic differences between the Middle Kingdoms of today and a century ago. Trekking overland 17000 kilometres to Beijing, he runs a gauntlet of political and geographic extremes including some of the world's hottest deserts and cruellest dictatorships. Along the way, Tamm offers piercing insights into China's past that raise troubling questions about its future. Can the Communist Party truly open China to the outside world yet keep Western ...
The Finnish Defence Forces / puolustusvoimat/ försvarsmakten are responsible for defence of Finland. It is a cadre army of 16500, of which 8700 are professional soldiers (officers), extended with conscripts and reservists such that the standard readiness strength is 34700 people in uniform (27300 Army, 3000 Navy, and 4400 Air Force). A universal male conscription is in place, under which all men above 18 years of age serve for 6, 9 or 12 months. Alternative non-military service and volunteer service by women (about 500 chosen annually are possible.Finland is the only non-NATO EU country bordering Russia. Finland's official policy states that the 350000 reservists with mostly ground weaponry are a sufficient deterrent. The army consists of a highly mobile field army backed up by local defence units. The army defends the national territory and its military strategy employs the use of the heavily forested terrain and numerous lakes to wear down an aggressor, instead of attempting to hold the attacking army on the frontier. Military experts call for common defense, but are careful to avoid politics. Finland's defence budget equals about 2 billion euro or 1.4-1.6 percent of the GDP. The voluntary overseas service is highly popular and troops serve around the world in UN, NATO and EU missions. Homeland defence willingness stands at around 80%, one of the highest rates in Europe.Peacekeeping operations:Finland has taken part in peacekeeping operations since 1956 (the number of ...
Baltic sea - the most polluted sea in the world BRIEF: How to save the rapidly dying sea? Forty years of targeting the general public with awareness campaigns and fundraising has not succeeded. In 2010, the Baltic Sea is still the MOST POLLUTED SEA IN THE WORLD. INSIGHT: A critically ill patient requires immediate and committed help that ONLY professionals can provide not fundraising or awareness campaigns. SOLUTION: We needed a lot of influential people, presidents, kings, prime ministers and business leaders, to commit to act in saving the Baltic Sea. People who could really catalyze change quickly.

Former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari accepts the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to resolve world conflicts.
Baron Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim (June 4, 1867 - January 27, 1951) was the Commander-in-Chief of Finland's Defence Forces, Marshal of Finland, a politician, and a military commander. He was Regent of Finland (1918 - 1919), and the sixth President of Finland (1944 - 1946). He started his military career in the Imperial Russian army, becoming the leader of Finnish government forces in the Finnish Civil War of 1918 and during World War II. No doubt that Mannerheim is the most important historical character in the Nordic history. ... When negotiations with the Soviet Union failed in 1939, Mannerheim on October 17 again withdrew his resignation, thereby again accepting the position as Commander-in-Chief of the Finnish army in case of war. Officially he became the Commander-in-Chief after the Soviet attack on November 30. In a letter to his daughter Sophie, he stated his view that "I had not wanted to undertake the responsibility of commander-in-chief, as my age and my health entitled me, but I had to yield to appeals from the President of the Republic and the government, and now for the fourth time I am at war." (Cited in Jägerskiöld, 1986). Mannerheim quickly reorganised his headquarters in Mikkeli. His strategic aide was Lieutenant General Aksel Airo, while his close friend, General Rudolf Walden, was sent as a representative of the headquarters to the Cabinet from 3 December 1939 till 27 March 1940, after which he became the Defence Minister. Mannerheim himself spent most of the Winter War and Continuation War in his Mikkeli headquarters but made many visits to the front. Between the wars, he held on to the authority as Commander-in-Chief, which according to the letter of law should have gone back to the presidents (Kyösti Kallio and Risto Ryti) after the Moscow Peace, March 12, 1940.
