A port in china has seized another of hanjin shipping’s container ships because of unpaid terminal fees of 875thousand U.S. dollars, bringing the tally of seized Hanjin ships to five. The vessel in question the Hanjin China had successfully offloaded all its cargo in Shanghai and was planning to head back to Busan. The terms of the seizure require that six to twelve crew members stay onboard for vessel.
Maintenance until the terminal fees are paid. While Hanjin can rotate the crew, it’s planning to auction some of the seized vessels to raise the money. But first, Hanjin will have to get legal permission on whether he can auction off its vessels. and that won’t come until early next year. The company was put under courtreceivership in September, and had a debt of fivepointfive.

Evolution was the first concept at school that really captivated me. At about 16, it seemed relevant, and it was disruptive to my worldview at the time, so I decided I’ll go to university, and I’ll learn more about it. So I did that. Then I took a step back and looked at the world around me,.
And it seemed like we weren’t headed in the direction we were supposed to. This notion of survival of the fittest didn’t really seem to be holding true. I wanted to know why that was, and what’s gone wrong. It’s that question, Why, and what’s gone wrong? that’s put me on my current path. So the next choice, I thought, Right, I’ll do a PhD,.
I’ll become a scientist, i’ll find all the answers, and I’ll create some solutions. But as with most things, the more you learn, the more you realize you don’t know. So here’s what I did learn. I started to think about human health on this continuum.
We’ve got good health down at the bottom here in blue, and bad health up at the top in orange. So we want to be down at the bottom, but I would say we’re somewhere in the middle. We’ve got five major challenges in terms of health facing the Western world: diabetes, lung disease, cancer, heart disease,.
And mental health conditions. This is despite the fact that there are more drugs on the market than there’s ever been. There’s bigger and better s being built all the time, better diagnostics, better drug discovery, and better biomedical research. So we call this the topdown approach to healthcare.
We pump money in at the top, and we get amazing innovations, but it’s not working as well as it should. I learned that the reason it’s not working as well as it should is because of our environment, or environmental risk factors, as scientists call them. So let’s have a look.
People lead sedentary lifestyles; the food quality isn’t what it was. People eat rubbish foods, they drink, they’re stressed out, and they smoke. So while your environment looks like this, it doesn’t matter how much money you pump in at the top; those innovations are never going to reach their full potential. So what we need is to change the environment from the bottom up.
We need a bottomup approach to healthcare. We need to change how people live and what they eat. It’s only when we apply this bottomup approach that the topdown approach can really work. They sit side by side, and we can really start to improve the health and wellbeing of the human population.
