Today we started at old problems, with couple of car bombs exploding in Istanbul this past week killing 36 and injuring more than a 160. Turkey paid 20 RP due to the attack. Malaysia’s economy is falling, and currency crunch and debt problems are ahead of Malaysia. Also, more than 4.5 billion is paid to foreigners who have cashed in their bonds. Malaysia paid 20RP for the problem. Violence against drug cartels in Mexico near the border with the US appears to be up again as nearly 700 people have been killed there just this year. Violence like this causes instability and fear of the people. Mexico paid 20RP for the problem. Kenya had illegal drug selling happening in their country and religion. Choosing not to stop the deal, Kenya got 30RP from bribe money but lost 1AP for the drug plants take away space to grow crops. Also as the drug selling wasn’t stopped in the religion,
Next was old random events. USA had an unknown disease affecting the crops. USA paid 25RP and rolled a die , losing 1AP but saving Mexico which was in the religion. Jordan had precious metals in a national park, which Jordan decided to get 5RP and roll a die, no extinction happening. Kenya had illegal drug selling happening in their country and religion. Choosing not to stop the deal, Kenya got 30RP from bribe money but lost 1AP for the drug plants take away space to grow crops. Also as the drug selling wasn’t stopped in the religion, Algeria lost 10RP.
Going on was new business. The new history committee Jordan was elected with no other candidates going for the spot. Next, the president election was between Mexico and China. Winning with a close vote of 5 to 4, Mexico was elected as the new president to serve the meeting for the next 4 meetings. Elected as president, Mexico could no longer be in the supreme council, which led to another election of the supreme council member. China won with 6 votes, while Malaysia lost with 5 votes.
Then we move on the new random events, Malaysia got the #2 problem, which a disease spread in Malaysia,he chooses 2, pay 25 Rp but unfortunately,there's an epidemic next meeting for him. Mexico's government's leaders stop fighting and have time passes some needed reforms for the economy's growth (problem #15),and get 10RP! Oil has been discovered in a remote part of Kenya, but people wouldn't want oil company to ruin where they lived and nobody company wants to makes the initial investment to drill and pump the oil makes a thorny choice for him. Kenya will make his choice next meeting. A rich patriot in Algeria died and left his wealth to the country (problem #12), she choose #2 to save it as a protection for next problem.
At last, we move to New problem. A toxic cloud of smog has descended on Northern China in late December forcing the government to issue a red alert. The air pollution lat every hardly to breathe and was so bad that it even closed the school for several days. The government ordered more than 700 companies to stop production and closed several coal power plants as well to ease the pollution. An attack in Jordan, claim by Islam states, killed at least 20 people in December 20, including a Canadian tourist. 27 people were also wounded in the attack which has now forced Jordan to reassess its policy of accepting refugees and invest more in security to prevent such attacks and the radicalization of more of its people. Kenya and other African nations are battling a steep rise in lifestyle diseases like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. These diseases are the top killer of the most of the countries. As Kenya become more wealthy, people in country has been chosen to eat something like fast food and causes them to develop cancers and other problems of their health, but Kenya’s health system is ill-prepared to handle this rise. Some patients seeking cancer treatment sometimes have to wait up to a year to get the care they need. Two major terror attack was claimed by Isis and Kurdish forces in Turkey, two bombing and spring has caused more than 40 died and more wounded. The government of Turkey will be hard pressed to maintain security. In response, Turkey has teamed up with Russia to attack IS targets in Syria this week. It cause China 35Rp, Jordan 20Rp, Kenya 20Rp, and Turkey for 30Rp to clean up.
This is the end of meeting, see you next meeting!
