• Republic of Marshall Islands as offshore tax haven USA

    Marshall Islands the Offshore Company Incorporation Service Heaven The Republic of the Marshall Islands becomes the jurisdiction of choice for publicly trade companies in the USA. For the past couple of years, Marshall Islands companies have led the way in new shipping company IPOs (initial public offerings) on both the NYSE and NASDAQ in New York. With a dozen Marshall Islands shipping companies now publicly trading and more to come, it is clear that professionals, such as lawyers, bankers and underwriters, trust the reputation of the Marshall Islands Corporate Registry and the corporate law of the Marshall Islands. This corporate law, known as the Republic of the Marshall Islands Business Corporations Act, is modeled on the corporate law of the U.S. state of Delaware, which is widely ...

Once again, the amazingly talented Majuro Baptist Christian Academy brings you "Take My hand" written by yours truly. Tell me what you think! I'm always appreciated of positive feedback. This song is about baby Moses when his mother sent him down the river to be away from the wrath of Pharaoh. It's from the perspective of one observing her final moments with her son. In the second verse, we hear of God's words of love towards us. Just as Moses' mother gave her son words of love, so God gives us words of love as we ourselves live in a foreign land.

  • STRATEGIC TRUST; The Making of Nuclear Free Palau

    From 1982 to 1996 award-winning filmmakers Mary Beth Brangan & James Heddle documented on film and video unfolding events in the fledgling island nation of Palau. When Palau's voters made it the first nation in history to adopt a nuclear free, green constitution, Washington's war planners saw it as 'the threat of a good example.' Palau became the poster child for the growing Nuclear Free Pacific movement and a cause celebre for the global nuclear free zone movement. The 10-year-long manipulation of the electoral process the U.S. then unleashed to force the rollback of Palau's nuclear ban became a text book case for subversion of the democratic process in developing countries...and at home. Their experiences covering this story made the filmmakers life-long advocates of...

    October 2009 An American test warhead arcs gracefully through the sky towards Kwajalein Island, a strange but familiar sight here. But now a rift between America and the Marshallese is making the islands future unclear. A Minuteman III intercontinental missile was fired 28 minutes earlier from a Californian airbase. Fortunately the re-entry vehicles splash down harmlessly in deep water in the Kwajalein Atoll. US Army Lt-Colonel Harold Buhl is pleased. In order for a weapon to be a weapon of deterrence it needs to be proven that in fact it will work. For 63 years the Marshall Islands has played host to American war games but in 2016 Americas lease for 11 of the islands is up. The Marshallese say the US compensation is inadequate and their people are struggling. Dubbed The Slum of the Paci...

For the past couple of years, Marshall Islands companies have led the way in new shipping company IPOs (initial public offerings) on both the NYSE and NASDAQ in New York. With a dozen Marshall Islands shipping companies now publicly trading and more to come, it is clear that professionals, such as lawyers, bankers and underwriters, trust the reputation of the Marshall Islands Corporate Registry and the corporate law of the Marshall Islands. This corporate law, known as the Republic of the Marshall Islands Business Corporations Act, is modeled on the corporate law of the U.S. state of Delaware, which is widely regarded as the most progressive and successful onshore corporate jurisdiction in the world. Lawyers in particular appreciate the flexibility and dependability of the Marshall Islands corporate program. According to Mr. Antonios Backos, who is a partner at the successful New York law firm of Healy & Baillie, LLP, the Marshall Islands has become the jurisdiction of choice for offshore public companies because "As corporate governance issues increase in importance for public and private companies alike, having a set of rules in an offshore jurisdiction that is more akin to current Delaware law facilitates boards and their advisors in developing best corporate practices." The Marshall Islands presents the best of all worlds for those interested in an offshore jurisdiction that can meet all of their needs. Since the Marshall Islands has a statutory provision in its law that exempts all offshore Marshall Islands companies from taxation in the Marshall Islands, Marshall Islands offshore companies enable investors and other professionals to save a tremendous amount of money while they can be assured that the legal system of the Marshall Islands will continue to be recognized and respected worldwide.

History The territory comprised the former South Pacific Mandate, a League of Nations Mandate administered by Japan and taken by the U.S. in 1944. The TTPI entered UN trusteeship on July 18, 1947 and was designated a "strategic area" in its 1947 trusteeship agreement. As such, its formal status as a UN trust territory could be terminated only by the Security Council, and not by the General Assembly as with other trust territories.[citation needed] The United States Navy controlled the TTPI from a headquarters in Guam until 1951, when the United States Department of the Interior took over control, administering the territory from a base in Saipan. A Congress of Micronesia first levied an income tax in 1971. It affected mainly foreigners working at military bases in the region. On October 21, 1986, the U.S. ended its administration of the Marshall Islands District. The termination of U.S. administration of the Chuuk, Yap, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and the Mariana Islands districts of the TTPI soon followed on November 3, 1986. The Security Council formally ended the trusteeship for the Chuuk, Yap, Kosrae, Pohnpei, Mariana Islands, and Marshall Islands districts on December 22, 1990. On May 25, 1994, the Council ended the trusteeship for the Palau District, after which the U.S. and Palau agreed to establish the latter's independence on October 1.

The most populous atoll is Majuro, which also acts as the capital. Micronesian colonists gradually settled the Marshall Islands during the 2nd millennium BC, with inter-island navigation made possible using traditional stick charts. Islands in the archipelago were first explored by Europeans in the 1520s, with Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar sighting an atoll in August 1526. Other expeditions by Spanish and English ships followed, with the islands' current name stemming from British explorer John Marshall (1788). Recognised as part of the Spanish East Indies in 1874, the islands were sold to the German Empire in 1884, and became part of German New Guinea in 1885. In World War I the Empire of Japan occupied the Marshall Islands, which the League of Nations joined with other former German territories in 1919, to form the South Pacific Mandate. In World War II, the islands were conquered by the United States in the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign. Along with other Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands were then consolidated into the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands governed by the US. Self-government was achieved in 1979, and full sovereignty in 1986, under a Compact of Free Association with the United States. Politically, the Marshall Islands is a presidential republic in free association with the United States, with the US providing defense, funding grants, and providing access to social services. With few natural resources, the islands' wealth is based on a service economy, as well as some fishing and agriculture, with a large percentage of the islands' gross domestic product represented by aid from the United States. The country uses the United States dollar as its currency. The majority of citizens of the Marshall Islands are of Marshallese descent, with small numbers of immigrants from the Philippines and other Pacific islands. The two official languages are Marshallese, a member of the Malayo-Polynesian languages, and English. Almost the entire population of the islands practises some religion, with three-quarters of the country either following the United Church of Christ -- Congregational in the Marshall Islands (UCCCMI) or the Assemblies of God. Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar was the first European to see the islands in 1526, commanding the ship Santa Maria de la Victoria, the only surviving vessel of the Loaísa Expedition. On August 21, he sighted an island at 14°N that they named "San Bartolome" (probably Taongi).[4] On September 21, 1529, Álvaro de Saavedra Cerón commanded the Spanish ship Florida, on his second attempt to recross the Pacific from the Maluku Islands. He stood off a group of islands from which several natives came off and hurled stones at his ship. These islands, named by him "Los Pintados," may have been Ujelang. On October 1, he found another group of islands where he went ashore for eight days, exchanged gifts with natives and took on water. These islands, "Los Jardines," could be Eniwetok or Bikini Atoll. The Spanish ship San Pedro and two other vessels in an expedition commanded by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi on January 9, 1530, discovered an island at 10°N where they went ashore and traded with natives and named it "Los Barbudos" (possibly Mejit). On January 10, they sighted another island that they named "Placeres" (perhaps Ailuk), ten leagues away, they sighted another island that they called "Pajares" (perhaps Jemo). On January 12, they sighted another island at 10°N which they called "Corrales" (possibly Wotho). On January 15, another low island was sighted at 10°N (perhaps Ujelang) where they made a good description of the people on "Barbudos."[7][8] After that, ships like San Jeronimo, Los Reyes, Todos los Santos also visited the islands in different years.

Self-government was achieved in 1979, and full sovereignty in 1986, under a Compact of Free Association with the United States. Politically, the Marshall Islands is a presidential republic in free association with the United States, with the US providing defense, funding grants, and access to social services. Having few natural resources, the islands' wealth is based on a service economy, as well as some fishing and agriculture, with a large percentage of the islands' gross domestic product coming from United States aid. The country uses the United States dollar as its currency. The majority of citizens of the Marshall Islands are of Marshallese descent, with small numbers of immigrants from the Philippines and other Pacific islands. The two official languages are Marshallese, a member of the Malayo-Polynesian languages, and English... In the months before the attack on Pearl Harbor, Kwajalein Atoll was the administrative center of the Japanese 6th Fleet Forces Service, whose task was the defense of the Marshall Islands. In World War II, the United States, during the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign, invaded and occupied the islands in 1944, destroying or isolating the Japanese garrisons. The US government added the archipelago to the U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, along with several other island groups in the South Sea. The battle in the Marshall Islands caused irreparable damage, especially on Japanese bases. During the American bombing, the islands' population suffered from lack of food and various injuries. U.S. attacks started in mid-1943, and caused half the Japanese garrison of 5,100 people in the atoll Mili to die from hunger by August 1945. In just one month in 1944, Americans captured Kwajalein Atoll, Majuro and Enewetak, and in the next two months the rest of the Marshall Islands except Wotje, Mili, Maloelap and Jaluit... From 1946 to 1958, as the site of the Pacific Proving Grounds, the U.S. tested 67 nuclear weapons in the Marshall Islands, including the largest nuclear test the U.S. ever conducted, Castle Bravo. In 1956, the Atomic Energy Commission regarded the Marshall Islands as "by far the most contaminated place in the world".

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshall_Islands The Marshall Islands, officially the Republic of the Marshall Islands (Marshallese: Aolepān Aorōkin M̧ajeļ), is an island country located in the northern Pacific Ocean. Geographically, the country is part of the larger island group of Micronesia, with the population of around 68,000 people spread out over 34 low-lying coral atolls, comprising 1,156 individual islands and islets. The islands share maritime boundaries with the Federated States of Micronesia to the west, Wake Island to the north, Kiribati to the south-east, and Nauru to the south. The most populous atoll is Majuro, which also acts as the capital. Micronesian colonists gradually settled the Marshall Islands during the 2nd millennium BC, with inter-island navigation made possible using traditional stick charts. Islands in the archipelago were first explored by Europeans in the 1520s, with Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar sighting an atoll in August 1526. Other expeditions by Spanish and English ships followed, with the islands' current name stemming from British explorer John Marshall. Recognized as part of the Spanish East Indies in 1874, the islands were sold to Germany in 1884, and became of German New Guinea in 1885. The Empire of Japan occupied the Marshall Islands in World War I, which were later joined with other former German territories in 1919 by the League of Nations to form the South Pacific Mandate. In World War II, the islands were conquered by the United States in the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign. Along with other Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands were then consolidated into the United-States-governed Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands.

Words and music by Brett Taylor (with help from Dymitri Solomon Jibas on the chorus ending) Special thanks to Branson Enos and Jonathan Lang for playing the guitar. Once again, the amazingly talented Majuro Baptist Christian Academy brings you "Take My hand" written by yours truly. Tell me what you think! I'm always appreciated of positive feedback. This song is about baby Moses when his mother sent him down the river to be away from the wrath of Pharaoh. It's from the perspective of one observing her final moments with her son. In the second verse, we hear of God's words of love towards us. Just as Moses' mother gave her son words of love, so God gives us words of love as we ourselves live in a foreign land. Verse One: All my life I’ve never heard such words of love Her voice so tender like an angel from above How her tears reveal such love a mother shows If only he could see how much she loves him so Listen to these words of love A mother speaking to her son A foreign land he will belong But through these words he will be strong Chorus: “Take my hand, don’t you cry, I’ll see you through There is light on the other side Do not fear, God is near, He’ll guide you through Trust in Him and these words abide.” Verse Two: All my life I’ve never heard such words of love Your words so tender like an angel from above How Your words reveal such love a Father shows Now I can clearly see how much you love me so Listen to these words of love A Father speaking to His own A foreign land I do belong But through these words I am made strong Chorus: “Take my hand, don’t you cry, I’ll see you through There is light on the other side Do not fear, I am near, I’ll guide you through Trust in Me, and My words abide

From 1982 to 1996 award-winning filmmakers Mary Beth Brangan & James Heddle documented on film and video unfolding events in the fledgling island nation of Palau. When Palau's voters made it the first nation in history to adopt a nuclear free, green constitution, Washington's war planners saw it as 'the threat of a good example.' Palau became the poster child for the growing Nuclear Free Pacific movement and a cause celebre for the global nuclear free zone movement. The 10-year-long manipulation of the electoral process the U.S. then unleashed to force the rollback of Palau's nuclear ban became a text book case for subversion of the democratic process in developing countries...and at home. Their experiences covering this story made the filmmakers life-long advocates of election integrity. This film was produced on a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in 1986.

October 2009 An American test warhead arcs gracefully through the sky towards Kwajalein Island, a strange but familiar sight here. But now a rift between America and the Marshallese is making the islands future unclear. A Minuteman III intercontinental missile was fired 28 minutes earlier from a Californian airbase. Fortunately the re-entry vehicles splash down harmlessly in deep water in the Kwajalein Atoll. US Army Lt-Colonel Harold Buhl is pleased. In order for a weapon to be a weapon of deterrence it needs to be proven that in fact it will work. For 63 years the Marshall Islands has played host to American war games but in 2016 Americas lease for 11 of the islands is up. The Marshallese say the US compensation is inadequate and their people are struggling. Dubbed The Slum of the Pacific, 15,000 people are crammed into a narrow strip of coral and sand.

Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://tytnetwork.com/join/ “A newly discovered photograph suggests legendary aviator Amelia Earhart, who vanished 80 years ago on a round-the-world flight, survived a crash-landing in the Marshall Islands. The photo, found in a long-forgotten file in the National Archives, shows a woman who resembles Earhart and a man who appears to be her navigator, Fred Noonan, on a dock. The discovery is featured in a new History channel special, "Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence," that airs Sunday. Independent analysts told History the photo appears legitimate and undoctored. Shawn Henry, former executive assistant director for the FBI and an NBC News analyst, has studied the photo and feels confident it shows the famed pilot and her navigator.” Read more here: http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/amelia-earhart-may-have-survived-crash-landing-never-seen-photo-n779591 Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Brett Erlich, Grace Baldridge Cast: Cenk Uygur, Brett Erlich, Grace Baldridge *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

"Bikini -- The Atom Island" is a 1946 short that chronicles the evacuation of Bikini Atoll prior to the Operation Crossroads atomic bomb tests. The forced re-location of the island inhabitants was just the beginning of an ordeal that continues into the present day, as life was never the same after the tests (which, incidentally, are not shown in this film but took place just after it was shot). Bikini Atoll is an atoll in the Marshall Islands. The atoll consists of 23 islands totaling 3.4 square miles surrounding a deep 229.4-square-mile central lagoon at the northern end of the Ralik Chain Within Bikini Atoll, Bikini, Eneu, Nam and Enidrik islands comprise just over 70% of the land area. Bikini and Eneu are the only islands of the atoll that hosted a permanent population. Bikini Island is the northeastern most and largest islet. Before World War II, the atoll was known by its Baltic German name as Eschscholtz Atoll. Between 1946 and 1958, 23 nuclear devices were detonated by the United States at seven test sites located on the reef, inside the atoll, in the air, or underwater. They had a combined fission yield of 42.2 Mt. The testing began with the Operation Crossroads series in July 1946. Prior to nuclear testing, the residents initially accepted resettlement voluntarily to Rongerik Atoll, believing they would be able to return home within a short time. Rongerik Atoll could not produce enough food and the islanders starved. When they could not return home, they were relocated to Kwajalein Atoll for six months before choosing to live on Kili Island, a small island one-sixth the size of their home island. Some were able to return to the Bikini Island in 1970 until further testing revealed dangerous levels of strontium-90. The islanders have been the beneficiary of several trust funds created by the United States government which as of 2013 covered medical treatment and other costs and paid about $550 annually to each individual. As of 2013, about 4880 Bikini people live on Kili and other Marshall Islands, and some have emigrated to the United States. Bikini Island is currently visited by a few scientists and inhabited by 4–6 caretakers.

Offshore Trusts. Visit http://www.AssetProtectionOffer.com and you can subscribe to my Offshore Asset Protection and Investing Secrets Video Series of videos and emails. You'll also get a copy of my book, Asset Protection in Financially Unsafe Times in pdf format and a 20-minute consultation with me to discuss YOUR SITUATION. All at no cost or obligation. So what are the best offshore jurisdictions for the formation of offshore trusts? The jurisdiction with the best track record is the Cook Islands. It has a record of twice flaunting a U.S. federal judge's attempts to seize trust assets. No other jurisdiction has that track record. There are a couple of jurisdictions that have bowed to U.S. courts demand, one being the Isle of Man. Some other good jurisdictions are Nevis, Belize, and the Cayman Islands. Western Samoa isn't bad but their Trust Statues are not nearly as well developed as the Cook Islands. It is not a bad idea to use a lower profile offshore jurisdiction initially, however, while the creditor seas are calm. In the event of a creditor attack, the trustee can move the trust to a strong jurisdiction such as the Cook Islands. Since this is the trustee's decision and not the grantor's, it makes the trust look less suspicious or anti-creditor to a judge, and it makes the grantor seem less likely to have set up the trust only for asset protection. Hope you find this video helpful. Thanks! Ryan Fowler

Thanks for watching.......... 1) Chuuk 2) Kosrae 3) Pohnpei 4) Yap 5) Colonia 6) Lelu 7) Palikir 8) Weno 9) Kitti 10) Nett The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is an independent sovereign island nation consisting of four states -- from west to east, Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei and Kosrae -- that are spread across the Western Pacific Ocean. Together, the states comprise around 607 islands (a combined land area of approximately 702 km2 or 271 sq mi) that cover a longitudinal distance of almost 2,700 km (1,678 mi) just north of the equator. They lie northeast of New Guinea, south of Guam and the Marianas, west of Nauru and the Marshall Islands, east of Palau and the Philippines, about 2,900 km (1,802 mi) north of eastern Australia and some 4,000 km (2,485 mi) southwest of the main islands of Hawaii. While the FSM's total land area is quite small, it occupies more than 2,600,000 km2 (1,000,000 sq mi) of the Pacific Ocean. The capital is Palikir, located on Pohnpei Island, while the largest city is Weno, located in the Chuuk Atoll. Each of its four states is centered around one or more main high islands, and all but Kosrae include numerous outlying atolls. The Federated States of Micronesia is spread across part of the Caroline Islands in the wider region of Micronesia, which consists of thousands of small islands divided between several countries. The term Micronesia may refer to the Federated States or to the region as a whole. The FSM was formerly a part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (TTPI), a United Nations Trust Territory under U.S. administration, but it formed its own constitutional government on May 10, 1979, becoming a sovereign state after independence was attained on November 3, 1986 under a Compact of Free Association with the United States. Other neighboring island entities, and also former members of the TTPI, formulated their own constitutional governments and became the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) and the Republic of Palau (ROP). The FSM has a seat in the United Nations. The ancestors of the Micronesians settled over four thousand years ago. A decentralized chieftain-based system eventually evolved into a more centralized economic and religious empire centered on Yap. Nan Madol, consisting of a series of small artificial islands linked by a network of canals, is often called the Venice of the Pacific. It is located on the eastern periphery of the island of Pohnpei and used to be the ceremonial and political seat of the Saudeleur dynasty that united Pohnpei's estimated 25,000 people from about AD 500 until 1500, when the centralized system collapsed. European explorers—first the Portuguese in search of the Spice Islands (Indonesia) and then the Spanish—reached the Carolines in the sixteenth century. The Spanish incorporated the archipelago to the Spanish East Indies and in the 19th century established a number of outposts and missions. In 1887 they founded the town of Santiago de la Ascension in what today is Kolonia on the island of Pohnpei.[4] Following the Spanish-American War the Spanish sold the archipelago to Germany in 1899. It was awarded to the Empire of Japan following World War I as a League of Nations Mandate. During World War II, a significant portion of the Japanese fleet was based in Truk Lagoon. In February 1944, Operation Hailstone, one of the most important naval battles of the war, took place at Truk, in which many Japanese support vessels and aircraft were destroyed. Following World War II, it was administered by the United States under United Nations auspices in 1947 as part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. On May 10, 1979, four of the Trust Territory districts ratified a new constitution to become the Federated States of Micronesia. Palau, the Marshall Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands chose not to participate. The FSM signed a Compact of Free Association with the United States, which entered into force on November 3, 1986, marking Micronesia's emergence from trusteeship to independence. The Compact was renewed in 2004. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federated_States_of_Micronesia

The Marshall Islands are a sprawling chain of volcanic islands and coral atolls in the central Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and the Philippines. In the northwest, Bikini Atoll’s largely undisturbed waters, used as a ship graveyard after World War II, are now a popular wreck dive site. Near Majuro Atoll, which holds the islands' capital and largest settlement, the coral reef at Kalalin Pass teems with marine life. After almost four decades under US administration as the easternmost part of the UN Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands attained independence in 1986 under a Compact of Free Association. Compensation claims continue as a result of US nuclear testing on some of the atolls between 1947 and 1962. The Marshall Islands have been home to the US Army Post Kwajalein (USAKA) since 1964. A number of islands are off-limits to tourism (and even to locals) due to US military presence or the residue of nuclear testing. The Marshall Islands consist of two island chains of 30 atolls and 1,152 islands, of low coral limestone and sand. Bikini and Enewetak are former US nuclear test sites; Kwajalein, the famous World War II battleground, is now used as a US missile test range.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enewetak_Atoll Enewetak Atoll (or Eniwetok Atoll, sometimes also spelled Eniewetok; Marshallese: Ānewetak, [æ̯ænʲee̯ɔ̯ɔ͡ɛɛ̯dˠɑk], or Āne-wātak, [æ̯ænʲee̯-ɒ̯ɒ͡ææ̯dˠɑk]) is a large coral atoll of 40 islands in the Pacific Ocean and with its 850 people forms a legislative district of the Ralik Chain of the Marshall Islands. Its land area totals less than 5.85 square kilometres (2.26 sq mi), not higher than 5 metres and surrounding a deep central lagoon, 80 kilometres (50 mi) in circumference. It is the second-westernmost atoll of the Ralik Chain and is 305 kilometres (190 mi) west from Bikini Atoll. The U.S. government referred to the atoll as "Eniwetok" until 1974, when it changed its official spelling to "Enewetak"... In 19771980, a concrete dome was built on Runit Island to deposit radioactive soil and debris... History Humans have inhabited the atoll since about 1,000 BCE. The first European visitor to Enewetak, Spanish explorer Alvaro de Saavedra, arrived on 10 October 1529... It was visited by about a dozen ships before the establishment of the German colony of the Marshall Islands in 1885. With the rest of the Marshalls, Enewetak was captured by the Imperial Japanese Navy in 1914 during World War I and mandated to the Empire of Japan by the League of Nations in 1920... During the Battle of Eniwetok in February 1944, the United States captured Enewetak in a five-day amphibious operation... Following the end of World War II, Enewetak came under the control of the United States as part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands until the independence of the Marshall Islands in 1986. During its tenure, the United States evacuated the local residents many times, often involuntarily. The atoll was used for nuclear testing as part of the Pacific Proving Grounds... Forty-three nuclear tests were fired at Enewetak from 1948 to 1958. The first hydrogen bomb test, code-named Ivy Mike, occurred in late 1952 as part of Operation Ivy; it vaporized the islet of Elugelab... A radiological survey of Enewetak was conducted in from 1972 to 1973. In 1977, the United States military began decontamination of Enewetak and other islands. During the three-year, $100 million cleanup process, the military mixed more than 111,000 cubic yards (85,000 m3) of contaminated soil and debris from the islands with Portland cement and buried it in an atomic blast crater on the northern end of the atoll's Runit Island... The final cost of the cleanup project was $239 million. The United States government declared the southern and western islands in the atoll safe for habitation in 1980, and residents of Enewetak returned that same year. Section 177 of the 1983 Compact of Free Association between the governments of the United States and the Marshall Islands establishes a process for Marshallese to make a claim against the United States government... That same year, an agreement was signed to implement Section 177 which established a $150 million trust fund. The fund was intended to generate $18 million a year, which would be payable to claimants... In 2000, the tribunal made a compensation award to the people of Enewetak consisting of $107.8 million for environmental restoration; $244 million in damages to cover economic losses caused by loss of access and use of the atoll; and $34 million for hardship and suffering. In addition, as of the end of 2008, another $96.658 million in individual damage awards were made. Only $73.526 million of the individual claims award has been paid... the fund was nearly exhausted as of May 2010 and unable to make any additional awards or payments. A lawsuit by Marshallese arguing that "changed circumstances" made Nuclear Claims Tribunal unable to make just compensation was dismissed by the Supreme Court of the United States in April 2010. The 2000 environmental restoration award included funds for additional cleanup of radioactivity on Enewetak... most areas still contaminated on Enewetak were treated with potassium... The cost of the potassium decontamination project was $103.3 million. It is projected that the majority of the atoll will be fit for human habitation by the year 2026-2027 after nuclear decay, de-contamination and environmental remediation efforts create sufficient dose reductions...

President Tsai Ing-wen announced today that visa-free status will be extended to Taiwan’s six Pacific allies, to the delight of her hosts in the Marshall Islands. However, the news was overshadowed by political upheavals in the Solomon Islands, the third stop on her trip, where the Prime Minister is facing a vote of no confidence. However, the Solomon Islands maintain that Tsai’s visit will be unaffected by their domestic political turbulence. A choir welcomed President Tsai into the Marshall Islands’ parliament, where she gave an address.Tsai Ing-wenPresidentI also want to announce that in the near future, Taiwan will extend visa-free status to all the citizens of its six Pacific allies, including the Republic of the Marshall Islands. I trust that our mutual relationship will improve even further. The representatives in attendance applauded the announcement. But in contrast to the peaceful and pleasant atmosphere in the Marshall Islands’ parliament, the government of the Solomon Islands, which is Tsai’s third stop on her tour, has fallen into crisis.David LeeForeign MinisterPresently the Solomon Islands’ cabinet is going through some political changes. But our understanding in every sense is that President Tsai’s itinerary in the Solomon Islands is unchanged. The government and opposition there are in agreement that her visit is extremely important, and they’re determined that only after her visit has successfully ended will they address their domestic political issues. Both government and opposition are agreed that they wish to continue their alliance with our country.In recent days, Foreign Minister David Lee has been continuously briefing the president on the political upheavals in the Solomon Islands. Seven of the nations’ ministers, including Deputy Prime Minister Manasseh Maelanga, have resigned, and the parliament is tabling a motion of no confidence in the Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare, meaning the government is about to be completely shaken up.

Trusts established for a specific purpose. A lot of people from United States, Canada and Europe establish them in particular in the Caribbean area and in Liechtenstein and Gibraltar, but in recent years it has become quite popular to establish trusts also in the Pacific-Asian regions (Cook Islands, Nauru, Marshall Islands) or in other jurisdictions.

The Marshall Islands, officially the Republic of the Marshall Islands (Marshallese: Aolepān Aorōkin M̧ajeļ), is an island country located in the northern Pacific Ocean. Geographically, the country is part of the larger island group of Micronesia, with the population of 68,480 people spread out over 24 low-lying coral atolls, comprising 1,156 individual islands and islets. The islands share maritime boundaries with the Federated States of Micronesia to the west, Wake Island to the north, Kiribati to the south-east, and Nauru to the south. The most populous atoll is Majuro, which also acts as the capital. Micronesian colonists gradually settled the Marshall Islands during the 2nd millennium BC, with inter-island navigation made possible using traditional stick charts. Islands in the archipelago were first explored by Europeans in the 1520s, with Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar sighting an atoll in August 1526. Other expeditions by Spanish and English ships followed, with the islands' current name stemming from British explorer John Marshall (1788). This video is targeted to blind users.

The Honorary Lifetime Achievement Award, endowed with € 10,000, goes posthumously to the former Foreign Minister of the Marshall Islands, Tony de Brum, who has just passed away at the age of 72. Excerpts from the speech of Tony de Brum's daughter Doreen after accepting the Honorary Lifetime Achievement Award from the DBU vice general secretary W. Wahmhoff. Whole speech: https://www.dbu.de/index.php?menuecms_optik=&menuecms=123&objektid=37404 “An bilingling koba, komman lometo.” In the words of my father—or, as most of the Marshall Islands know him, Papa—“The ocean is made up of drops. Each one of us is responsible for a drop of ocean. If you take care of that drop and he takes care of his drop and she takes care of her drop, we can take care of the world.” [...] I invite us all to make a choice. Let each person here tonight choose to take care of his or her drop of ocean. For ordinary people, working in concert, is the only thing that has ever changed the world. I can think of no better way to honor Papa than to tend to my drop, and trust that you will tend to yours. In the end, I know we can save the world. On behalf of my late Papa, Tony deBrum… I thank you very much. ___________________________________ Watch the whole German Environmental Award Ceremony here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByM_ZhHO23I

The late Baruch Blumberg (1925-2011) was an American scientist and doctor whose most significant contributions to medicine include the identification of the Hepatitis B virus. He was one of three co-recipients of the 1976 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. [Listener: Rebecca Blanchard] TRANSCRIPT: I had taken part in a… in a medical study on the people who had been exposed to radiation on the island of the Atoll of Rongelap in the… in the Marshall Islands and that was about 120 miles downwind of Bikini and the… they exploded a… a nuclear device as part of a test program, a nuclear test program that was done in the... what was the US [sic] Trust Territory, the Pacific Islands, and this bomb was far bigger than they anticipated and also they didn't predict the weather patterns and they should have known because that's the prevailing wind. But in any case about 60 or 70 Marshall Islanders were subject to this fallout, and they were removed from the island and put in temporary accommodation, very difficult. The whole business was a sort of a scandal — don’t know if that’s really the right word, certainly very unfortunate — but from then on, they did medical examinations of them each year so I went on the fifth medical exam, which… they'd been returned to the, to the atoll, Rongelap Atoll by then, so I spent a few weeks with a… an examining party. Well, over the… they collected blood essentially every year and so I tested those for this Australia antigen, and in one case there was a person who didn't have it, then he developed the antigen and then developed the antibody and we learned that he'd had a transfusion. So that was another indicator and added to that was this observation of the Down syndrome patient. So what happens, you know, you… you get an idea, a kind of concept, but often it's… it's kind of built on a sort of background of information. You know, there's a bunch of things that kind of add up and then suddenly there's a sort of realization and it's a realization that makes you act and makes you do something and I… I think in retrospect that observing that one of our own patients, somebody we knew quite well, and as a matter of fact we kept in touch with him for years afterwards, and his… and his mother who died a few years ago; that had a big psychological impact. Okay, so we tested that, we found that — well, then we thought one of the best, one of the most important things to do now, was to confirm, you know, to have people confirm it and it doesn't do any good or it doesn't do as much good for us to do it over and over again. In the meanwhile, a colleague of mine in… in Japan had made very similar observations to ours. I'd been to Japan in the 1960s, 1964, 1965 possibly. We'd spoken about this work about the Australia antigen. He sent his reagents to us, we exchanged them and it turned out it was the same thing, so that was an immediate confirmation from Professor Okochi.
