    BEIJING In China, it is legal to eat cats and dogs. Even so, ordinary people reacted with alarm this week as news broke of a Chinese man caught with 500 cats, crowded into tiny cages, which he intended to sell to restaurants. The man had used sparrows and caged birds to lure both stray cats and domestic ones in the city of Jiujiang in southern Jiangsu province, the 163.com and news.ifeng.com websites reported. Many of the cats were found in cages in the back of a small truck, some near death and mewing faintly in the heat, while others...
  • The curious rise of the white left as a Chinese internet insult

    06/08/2017 4:42:28 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 10 replies
    If you look at any thread about Trump, Islam or immigration on a Chinese social media platform these days, it’s impossible to avoid encountering the term baizuo (白左), or literally, the ‘white left’. It first emerged about two years ago, and yet has quickly become one of the most popular derogatory descriptions for Chinese netizens to discredit their opponents in online debates. *snip* Although the emphasis varies, baizuo is used generally to describe those who “only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment” and “have no sense of real problems in the real world”; they are...

    Vice President Mike Pence said Monday that more Chinese involvement is needed to deal with North Koreas nuclear weapons program. Speaking from the Demilitarized Zone on CNNs New Day, the vice president said the new U.S. policy will redouble efforts to put economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea, and get more involvement from the Chinese. I know the president was heartened by his discussions with President Xi [Jinping], he said, Weve seen China beginning to take some actions to bring pressure on North Korea, but there needs to be more.

    The big story everyone is chasing is whether President Trump is a Russian stooge. Wrong. Thats all a smoke screen. Trump is actually a Chinese agent. He is clearly out to make China great again. Just look at the facts. Trump took office promising to fix our trade imbalance with China, and whats the first thing he did? He threw away a U.S.-designed free-trade deal with 11 other Pacific nations a pact whose members make up 40 percent of global G.D.P. The Trans-Pacific Partnership was based largely on U.S. economic interests, benefiting our fastest-growing technologies and agribusinesses, and had...

    Democratic super-lobbyist Tony Podesta grossed more than $500,000 to represent a Chinese company criminally convicted in March of sending illegal shipments of telecom equipment to Iran, The Daily Caller News Foundations Investigative Group has learned. The seriousness of the illegal sales to Iran were so extreme and continued for so long from 2010 to last year the Department of Justice (DOJ) imposed a record $1.19 billion fine on the ZTE Telecommunications company, making it the largest penalty ever imposed in a U.S. sanctions case. {..snip..}

    LONDON - A British intelligence translator has been cleared of leaking a secret e-mail that alleged the U.S. wanted to spy on United Nations Security Council members before the war against Iraq. "The prosecution offer no evidence against the defendant on this indictment as there is no longer sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction," prosecutor Mark Ellison told the court. Katharine Gun, 29, works at the Government Communications Headquarters, Britain's global surveillance centre. She was charged in November with breaching Britain's Official Secrets Act after an memo was leaked to the British newspaper The Observer. The newspaper reported...

    A satirical article about President Donald Trump covering the White House phones in tin foil gained traction on Chinese news sites, despite being entirely fictional. The Friday article in the New Yorker, "Trump Orders All White House Phones Covered in Tin Foil," was penned by humorist Andy Borowitz as part of his column, which offers satirical takes on real-world events. The New Yorker's Borowitz Report disclaimer -- "not the news" -- failed to dissuade Reference News, a paper published by China's state-run Xinhua news agency, from citing it in an article about Trump ordering aides Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway...

    Hackers have breached a database containing a wealth of sensitive information from federal employees security background checks, the Obama administration said Friday news that experts say could deal a devastating blow to U.S. intelligence gathering.

The stolen records in the hack disclosed Friday included data on intelligence and military personnel, The Associated Press reported. A senior...

Traces of yam and lily root parts also appeared in...

  • Zhou Youguang, Architect Of A Bridge Between Languages, Dies At 111

    Zhou Youguang, the inventor of a system to convert Chinese characters into words with the Roman alphabet, died Saturday at the age of 111. Since his system was introduced nearly six decades ago, few innovations have done more to boost literacy rates in China and bridge the divide between the country and the West. Pinyin, which was adopted by China in 1958, gave readers unfamiliar with Chinese characters a crucial tool to understand how to pronounce them. These characters do not readily disclose information on how to say them aloud but with such a system as Pinyin, those characters...

  • Beijings Heavy Hand on Hong Kong

    11/07/2016 9:40:31 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 8 replies
    The Chinese government on Monday reinterpreted Hong Kongs Basic Law to prevent two pro-independence lawmakers from taking seats in the Hong Kong legislature. Rather than let local courts handle the matter, Beijing intervened in unprecedented fashion, without a request from local authorities. Such heavy-handedness is certain to increase Hong Kongs resentment of Chinese rule. Sixtus Baggio Leung and Yau Wai-ching were among six young activists elected to the legislature in September on platforms advocating local democracy and greater autonomy from Beijing. Some of the six support a vaguely defined self-determination, others a referendum on how Hong Kong should be governed...
