ShareThose pining for BAB Korean Restaurant’s all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue buffet can heave a big sigh of relief now. Dante Conlu, who handles marketing and promotions for the Garapan restaurant, said BAB Korean Restaurant closed its widely popular Korean barbecue buffet to reassess pricing and because the restaurant itself underwent some minor renovations. To reflect the rising cost of meat products and other ingredients, the eat-all-you-can Korean barbecue buffet now costs $24.99. He added that sometimes diners would beg off from having the shabu-shabu already because they’re basically full enjoying the eat-all-you-can Korean barbecue buffet. So far, BAB Restaurant is still the only Korean barbecue buffet on island and we’re here to stay,” said Conlu.

ShareThe Governor’s Council of Economic Advisers wishes to express its appreciation for the leadership of Gov. Ralph DLG Torres in establishing the strongest linkage with the Marianas’ private sector and for the collaboration that has resulted from it over the last two years. GCEA was created in 2020 in the midst of a global pandemic with the recognition that the Marianas economy needed a concerted effort to stabilize and rebuild the private sector. Many prior attempts failed to establish strong partnerships and resulted in a decadeslong continuation of government and the private sector operating apart. But the private sector, and the many employees that rely on it, require a government that understands and supports its success.2 months ago Saipan Tribune

However, with an emboldened Xi, we might witness a world worse than what Mao created, reported Voices Against Autocracy. A lot of scholars are predicting a reversal back into the Maoist era, reported Voices Against Autocracy. One example has been witnessed in China's ruthless pursuit to achieve self-reliance in core technologies, reported Voices Against Autocracy. The dependency that China has created for the world on itself, will allow Xi to dominate the global and Chinese economy like never before. It has become nearly impossible to decouple the Chinese economy from the world's economy, so it is an issue of grave concern, reported Voices Against Autocracy.3 months ago Tribune India

Trump supported stimulus payments of $2,000 per person in 2020, with payments landing at $600, then $1,400 under Biden in 2021. Russia is the world’s largest exporter of oil, and the second largest crude oil exporter behind Saudi Arabia. Worse, Saudi Arabia’s bone saw prince joined Putin in a despots’ cartel pact to limit oil production, a move intended to kneecap NATO’s sanctions, keep oil prices inflated, and counter Biden. Crude oil prices in Europe ebb and flow in almost perfect tandem with U.S. prices, demonstrating stubborn independence from government policies and strategies on both sides of the pond. In counterpoint, going into the midterms, the GOP unveiled its “Commitment to America” platform addressing inflation, energy independence, and a strong economy.3 months ago Chicago Tribune

South Korea also on Friday scrambled about 80 military aircraft after tracking about 180 flights by North Korean warplanes inside North Korean territory. It accused the United States of mobilizing its allies in a campaign using sanctions and military threats to pressure North Korea to unilaterally disarm. North Korea has launched dozens of ballistic missiles this year, including multiple ICBMs and an intermediate-range missile flown over Japan. South Korean officials say there are indications North Korea in coming weeks could detonate its first nuclear test device since 2017.2 months ago Yonkers Tribune
