Is this 'Pork Belly'?

this is the best I could find and as they they there was 'no english'
note the cartilage that one sometimes sees on 'bacon' but note the ribs and how they run on the L of the photo. not may ribs in what Id call 'belly' so is this ' side meat ' of some kind?
I hope to use it for SV/BBQ/MC@H
your thoughts on this cut?

all kidding aside, the L of this 'belly' has rib bones so I guess ive always been wrong thinking 'belly is the meat around that button or side meat. I guess it runs up to include meat next to the ribs.

so I guess 'pork belly' really is a side of pork. ribs removed for 'bacon' etc
wonder where the piggy 'flank steak' is. is that the smooth muscle seen in the above vid?
Ive always thought the 'flank steak' (beefy ones) were the abdominal muscles, is '6 pack abs' etc.
somewhat asked on maybe the SV thread or MC@H on price: these were 2.49 and I got 5.2 lbs total weight on the two pieces.
