Jon Huntsman's Mandarin moments - POLITICO

-You don't speak Mandarin during a Republican Debate. 
“I didn’t think the Mandarin thing worked at all. I thought it was ridiculous,” said Donald Trump, a harsh critic of China, on Fox News. “And frankly, I think Huntsman’s stance toward China is — it’s almost like he’s an Obama plant.”

Powder Keg in East Asia - James Poulos - The American Interest Magazine: 'via Blog this'

"For writers across the conceptual spectrum, from The Diplomat toLewRockwell.com, the evocative comparison is as natural as it is worrisome. For the White House, however, the catastrophic run-up to the First World War would seem to make for a teachable moment. As Walter Russell Mead has argued, the Administration’s broader policy for the region promises to bring great flourishing to both sides of the Pacific, so long as China understands there will be real downsides to refusing to play by the so-called rules of the road. Instead of a tit-for-tat race to the belligerent bottom, perhaps the Obama strategy augurs the dawn of a true sphere of mutual prosperity for East Asia."

A bit more on Lei Yixin 雷宜锌
from VOA English

Career

The 2.3 metres (7 ft 7 in) tall sculpture at the International Stone Sculpture Conference drew attention to his work,[6] yet Lei has revealed that the sculpture he created at the conference was the first he had ever carved on his own.[7] Ed Jackson, the executive architect at the foundation of MLK Foundation was immediately impressed by Lei's sculpture "Contemplation"[8] at the Minnesota Rocks! Symposium in June 2006 Mike Xiong, [9] and in 2007, Lei was named head sculptor for the "Stone of Hope", at the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial.[10]
In April 2008 the U.S. Commission of Fine Art rejected Lei's design for the King Memorial Sculpture. In a letter dated 28 April, the commission wrote that Lei's presentation was an inappropriate expression of Dr. King, declaring King too "confrontational" in Lei's sculpture, and asking for a more "sympathetic" King.[11] Some changes were made to Lei's design and construction began. There were other controversies on the project which did not involve Lei but were often connected to him, over the Chinese sourcing of granite for his sculpture and the choice of Chinese artisans who were employed to carve the stone, both of which were the decision of lead architect Ed Jackson. In addition, mistakes by the architects on the project forced Lei to make last-minute changes, such as replacing a pen in the hand of King with a scroll, when a photo the architects had used as a model turned out to be reversed. Most controversially, the "drum major" quote by King was shortened for inclusion on Lei's sculpture; this occurred when the team of architects wanted Lei to reverse the placement of two planned quotes, after he had already been instructed to carve out space for them, and having done as instructed previously, there was not enough space for the quote in a new position unless it was shortened. Jackson made the decision to cut the quote down to size. Later criticism by poet Maya Angelou, The Washington Post and others caused a reassessment of that decision, although the quote remains shortened, as of October 2011.
The completed work, a 30 feet (9.1 m) tall statue, was unveiled in August 2011 to mark the 48th anniversary of King's I Have a Dream speech.[12] Due to Hurricane Irene, the official dedication was postponed until October 2011. Reviews of the finished sculpture were mixed. Some reviewers criticized the King statue on the basis of Lei's earlier work making representations of Mao Zedong, of whom they disapproved, including one statement by The Economist that "Mr Lei is a political bullshit artist, and it shows."[13] Other reviews focused on the way Lei depicted King in particular. The stoic, unsmiling pose of King in Lei's sculpture has been criticized by some since the initial rejection of Lei's design, due to perceived severe divergence from a popular media image of King as a unifying, hopeful leader and peace campaigner. However, other critics praised Lei's more risky depiction. African Americans in particular noted the avoidance of mythology in the "confrontational" expression of King, suggesting Lei showed King facing the challenges of the present rather than dwelling in nostalgia.[14] Lei said, "you can see the hope, but his serious demeanor also indicated that he's thinking."[15]

Book Review: "Collective Killings In Rural China During the Cultural Revolution" by Yang Su |

Collective Killings In Rural China During the Cultural Revolution by Yang Su | Chronic Discontent: 'via Blog this'

The violence of Mao's China is well known, but its extreme form is not. In 1967 and 1968, during the Cultural Revolution, collective killings were widespread in rural China in the form of pubic execution. Victims included women, children, and the elderly. This book is the first to systematically document and analyze these atrocities, drawing data from local archives, government documents, and interviews with survivors in two southern provinces. This book extracts from the Chinese case lessons that challenge the prevailing models of genocide and mass killings and contributes to the historiography of the Cultural Revolution, in which scholarship has mainly focused on events in urban areas.


"This is one of the best books I've read on China in recent years and the most horrible and frightening. ...Mr. Su has been triumphant."  
-Jonathan Mirsky, Former East Asia editor of The Times (London) (Hong Kong Economic Journal)

100 Chinese Red Envelopes
Customers comments: These are definitely not first quality. The paper was not lined-up correctly when they were run through the printing presses for first, second or third ink colors. As as result, the images look strange. The photograph is accurate - your computer or eyes are not the problem. It's the product. These are fine if you don't really care what your red envelopes look like. Personally, I'll be a little embarrassed to give these to young relatives.


100 Chinese Red Envelopes From Wikipedia.
Red envelopes are mainly presented at social and family gatherings such as weddings or on holidays such as the Lunar New Year. The red color of the envelope symbolizes good luck and is supposed to ward off evil spirits. The act of requesting for red packets is normally called (Mandarin): 討紅包, 要利是, (Cantonese): 逗利是.
The amount of money contained in the envelope usually ends with an even digit, in accordance with Chinese beliefs; for instance 88 and 168 are both lucky numbers, as odd-numbered money gifts are traditionally associated with funerals. But there is a widespread tradition that money should not be given in fours, or the number four should not appear in the amount, such as 40, 400 and 444 as the pronunciation of the word "four" resembles that of the word "death", and it signifies bad luck for many Chinese (See Numbers in Chinese culture). At weddings, the amount offered is usually intended to cover the cost of the attendees as well as a goodwill to the newlyweds.
During the Lunar New Year, mainly in South China, red envelopes (in the North, just money without any cover) are typically given by the married to the unmarried, most of whom are children. The amount of money is usually a single note to avoid heavy coins, and to make it difficult to judge the amount inside before opening. It is traditional to put brand new notes inside red envelopes, as well as to avoid opening the envelopes in front of the relatives out of courtesy. In recent years, some Asian-based banks provide newer-looking notes to reduce the environmental impact of printing new banknotes.
In Vietnam, lì xì are typically given to those who are children (typically 5 years of age and younger).
Red envelopes are also used to deliver payment for favorable service to lion dance performers, religious practitioners, teachers and doctors.

The most unbelievable Chinese Volleyball rally EVER.

-You must watch it! 

2 minutes of pure excitement.  Quite amazing.

Volleyball fans at a women's match in China were left gobsmacked after a simply stunning rally that went on for almost two minutes.
Both sets of players kept the rally alive with a sensational range of breathtaking shots and saves in a match between Tianjin and Army.
Not surprisingly both teams play in the top level of the Chinese Volleyball League with Tianjin having won the title for the past five years and for eight of the last nine years.
You can see why they are so successful too after they won this incredible point that simply must be seen to be believed.

Lamborghini Gallardo Crash on Chinese Highway

-Crazy people with money. 

An unidentified driver and his or her "crew" or Lamborghini-driving pals were speeding through what appears to be China when two bulls got a little too close overtaking. There was plenty of rooms for both cars, but the driver of the green Gallardo overreacted and ended up colliding with the wall (and possibly more).
It's the inevitable result of exotic street racing, particularly in China, where drivers reach new heights in public endangerment.

Relations with China dominate Taiwan vote for SATURDAY'S Election


Taiwan's President Ma Ying-jeou held a media conference ahead of Saturday's election, claiming that he is the only candidate in the race that can continue Taipei's strong and beneficial relationship with main land China.

Speaking to mainly foreign journalists on Thursday, President Ma emphasised his success in the reconciliation effort that has changed the nature of the cross-strait relationships with China, a policy that he promises will continue in his second term.

But, while most big businesses have thrown their support behind the president, many Taiwanese are still sceptical. They say Taiwan factories have lost business to China over the past few years.
