Obama 2013: A Year in the Photos

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 7, 2014

The White House Photography Office picked out some of the best photos from the past year to give you an inside look at the presidency — and some of the best moments from 2013.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • President Obama singing Happy Birthday to First Lady Michelle Obama
  • Lots of Sunny and Bo
  • Visiting South Africa to honor Nelson Mandela
  • Some very adorable kids with the President

[Celebrity’s every word, moment and activity could be news and subject for debate and discussion. US President’s most of the activities could have global value and meaning. In 2013 Obama was sworn in for a second term and I would like to share the photos highlighting President Obama’s 2013 activities that  I received two hours ago  from White House.

After writing letter to President Obama  on American shoe company issue with Buddha photos on shoes, I regularly receive emails from White House.]

Can a Stronger Chinese Currency Save the U.S. Economy?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 5, 2011

Give Charles Schumer credit for persistence. The New York Senator first introduced legislation that targeted Chinese currency in 2003, and has been a leading congressional advocate of the view that China keeps the value of its currency, the renminbi, artificially low, giving its exporters an unfair advantage when competing against U.S. manufacturers. On Monday a bill co-sponsored by Schumer that would allow for duties on goods from countries found to be currency manipulators won a Senate vote to open debate 79-19. If it passes a full Senate vote later this week it faces tougher odds in the House, where Speaker John Boehner has called the legislation “dangerous.” The White House has also so far not said where it stands on the bill.

On Tuesday China’s Foreign Ministry, Ministry of Commerce and central bank all slammed the bill, warning that it could set off a trade war and harm the global economy. Schumer responded Tuesday on the Senate floor by suggesting the Chinese position was a bluff, as a trade war would harm China more than the U.S. “They won’t cut their nose to spite their face,” he said. “They may take a few sanctions in response, but they’re not going to create a trade war.”  It is much the same argument Schumer put to me while on a visit to China in March 2005. But in the past five-and-a-half years, a few key numbers have changed. Most significant is U.S. unemployment. In March 2005 the unemployment rate was high at 6.1%, but this August it stood at 9.1%. That added economic misery in the U.S. will add to the political pressure to punish China. Read the rest of this entry »

Obama Set To Announce New High-Tech Manufacturing Program

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 24, 2011

By Julie Pace

PITTSBURGH — Imagining advances from lighter cars to smarter robots, President Barack Obama is announcing a $500 million project to spur high-technology manufacturing, a sector of U.S. industry that presidential advisers say has lost ground to such competitors as Germany and Japan.

On Friday in Pittsburgh, Obama is to call for a joint effort by industry, universities and the federal government to help reposition the United States as a leader in cutting-edge manufacturing, including biotechnology, robotics and nanotechnology – the development of new materials at the molecular level.

The initiative represents yet another effort by Obama to promote job-creation in the midst of an economic slowdown that has reduced hiring and weakened his job approval standing with the public. The president has tried to elevate his profile on the economy with weekly job-related trips to states that are key to his re-election.

In 2008, Obama beat John McCain, his Republican opponent, by a 55-45 percent margin in Pennsylvania. But presidential elections are usually competitive there, making the state a 2012 battleground.

He is to launch his new high-tech plan at Carnegie Mellon University, one of six universities in what the administration is calling the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership. The plan also features 11 manufacturing companies, including Ford Motor Co., Caterpillar Inc., Procter & Gamble Co. and Northrop Grumman Corp. Leading the effort will be Andrew Liveris, chairman, president and CEO of the Dow Chemical Co., and Susan Hockfield, president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
