chattels: Adviser and advisor are both accepted spellings of the noun meaning one who advises or counsels.
There is no difference between them. But adviser, the older version, is listed as the primary spelling in most dictionaries, and it is about five times as common as advisor in current news publications from throughout the English-speaking world.

Donnie: Rejecting the Iran deal will be high-cost, Jack Lew writes in the NYT
Donnie: U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry (L) holds a negotiation meeting with Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif (R) over Iran's nuclear programme in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The Iran nuclear deal offers a long-term solution to one of the most urgent threats in modern times, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew has said in an opinion piece for The New York Times (NYT).
Iran, the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, would be less than 90 days away from having enough fissile material to create a nuclear bomb, should Congress decide to reject the deal, he warned - a rejection that would put the U.S. at odds with the rest of the world.
Rejecting the opinion of countries involved in the Iran talks, which include China, Japan, India and South Korea, as well as the European Union, and unilaterally introducing tougher Iran sanctions would result in cutting off those allies from the U.S. dollar and financial system.
"We would set off extensive financial hemorrhaging, not just in our partner countries but in the United States as well," Lew wrote.

Donnie: AUGUST 14, 2015 The Iran Gambit II by PETER KOENIG Email Gambit I was the start of false accusations by the then Bush Administration in 2007 that Iran was preparing a nuclear weapon, when in fact Iran had no such ambitions at all, but a plan to open an Iranian Oil Bourse (IOB) in Teheran,
an international hydrocarbon exchange, where all countries, hydrocarbon producers or not, could trade this (still) principal energy source in euros, as an alternative to the US dollar.
This would have devastated the dollar as a hegemonic fiat currency – still used on false trust as the main world reserve currency.

Donnie: Going Its Own Way: US Fails to Bring Beijing Into Its Political Fold
Donnie: China is not "at a crossroads," it is consistently pursuing its own geopolitical goals irrespective of Washington's plans and expectations, American expert Peter Mattis notes.
China has undergone a lot of changes over the last twenty years, while Washington is clinging to an outdated concept that Beijing is still facing a dilemma whether to join the US-led world order or to remain out in the cold, the Editor of China Brief at The Jamestown Foundation Peter Mattis points out.

chattels: ‹@Donnie› my compliments on your increasing interest in looking at " the bigger picture "
Donnie: ‹@chattels› TY Sir
Donnie: to me it's all so exciting to see what all these countries are doing. just watching Iraq can be a little boring at times. Of course lately the excitement has increased again.
chattels: ‹@Donnie› maybe you can enlighten this macroeconomic moron :)
Donnie: to see congress debate the Iran deal as if they have any control over it is so silly. Switzerland already accepted the sanctions as being lifted. other countries are dealing with Iran. IMO Iran's progress to return to the world stage is causing Iraq to get off the pot and stop playing politics.
Donnie: Albidi sure did step up to the plate this past week but can/will he continue until the MR is complete??? Past experiences speak very loud...
EdoBini: Abadi of Iraq is at the cross road. He must seize the moment and increase its currency rate or his leadership in Iraq will go under.
Donnie: People please watch/follow/read about the Silk Road. It's key to the ME reforms because it goes from China through Syria, Iran, Iraq to Europe. Major developments taking place all along the Silk Road project.
chattels: A funeral procession pulled into a cemetery. Several carloads of family members followed a black truck towing a boat with a coffin in it. A passer-by remarked, "That guy must have been a very avid fisherman."
chattels: "Oh, he still is," remarked one of the mourners. As a matter of fact, he's headed off to the lake as soon as we bury his wife."
