Apple's Foxconn Workers Want To Work More

-RIGHT ON Business Insider! Right on! 

One of the FLA's biggest findings was "overwork." In peak manufacturing periods, Foxconn employees worked long hours with minimal time off. As a result, the FLA has demanded that Foxconn hire more workers and build more worker dorms, so this practice will stop.

But here's the thing...

According to the FLA findings, at least, Foxconn's workers actually don't work ridiculously long hours. More importantly, by and large, Foxconn's workers want to work more.

Why do Foxconn's workers want to work more?

Because they want to make more money.

And working more, not less, is something that many workers the world over voluntarily choose to do--or have to do to earn enough money to live. And the latter problem is not just limited to China. Many Americans, for example--the folks who are lecturing Chinese about their working conditions--work two or more jobs to make ends meet, despite being paid well more than minimum wage. This hard work, moreover, is especially common in short bursts, when teams are trying to finish important projects, just the way it is at Foxconn.

And, in most places, this ambition and gumption is admired, not scorned.

China arrests over coup rumours -BBC

-and the stock plunges. 

Chinese police have arrested six people and shut 16 websites after rumours were spread that military vehicles were on the streets of Beijing, officials say.

The web posts were picked up last week by media outlets around the world, amid uncertainty caused by the ouster of top political leader Bo Xilai.

The State Internet Information Office (SIIO) said the rumours had a "very bad influence on the public".

Two popular microblogs have temporarily stopped users from posting comments.

The two sites, Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo, are still letting people post to their own sites. But they said commenting on other people's posts would be disabled between 31 March and 3 April, so they "could act to stop the spread of rumours".

Could China's One Child Policy be coming to the West? Really Smart People are advocating for it.

This is the shocking face of China’s brutal one child policy which many academics and pressure groups are now calling to be imposed in the west – the image shows a 9 month old baby lying dead in a bucket, forcibly aborted by Chinese family planning authorities in the town of Moshan, Shandong province.
Because the parents of the baby already had a child, they were hunted down and forced to comply with China’s draconian one child policy. The mother was injected with a poison that induced an abortion, but after the baby was “pulled out inhumanly like a piece of meat,” it was still alive and began to cry before doctors slung the defenseless child into a bucket and left it to die.

From the really smart Diane Francis at the Financial Post in December of 2009:
 "The "inconvenient truth" overhanging the UN's Copenhagen conference is not that the climate is warming or cooling, but that humans are overpopulating the world. A planetary law, such as China's one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently, which is one million births every four days. The world's other species, vegetation, resources, oceans, arable land, water supplies and atmosphere are being destroyed and pushed out of existence as a result of humanity's soaring reproduction rate. Ironically, China, despite its dirty coal plants, is the world's leader in terms of fashioning policy to combat environmental degradation, thanks to its one-child-only edict."

An American Spy (in China)

-High level Chinese gov't people in the CIA? 
An American Spy
In Olen Steinhauer’s bestseller The Tourist, reluctant CIA agent Milo Weaver uncovered a conspiracy linking the Chinese government to the highest reaches of the American intelligence community, including his own Department of Tourism---the most clandestine department in the Company. The shocking blowback arrived in the Hammett Award--winning The Nearest Exit when the Department of Tourism was almost completely wiped out as the result of an even more insidious plot.

Following on the heels of these two spectacular novels comes An American Spy, Olen Steinhauer’s most stunning thriller yet. With only a handful of “tourists”---CIA-trained assassins---left, Weaver would like to move on and use this as an opportunity to regain a normal life, a life focused on his family. His former boss in the CIA, Alan Drummond, can’t let it go. When Alan uses one of Milo’s compromised aliases to travel to London and then disappears, calling all kinds of attention to his actions, Milo can’t help but go in search of him.

Exclusive: Iran helps Syria ship oil to China, Chinese Spokeswoman: "I've Never Heard About This."

-This is news apparently.  
(Reuters) - Iran is helping its ally Syria defy Western sanctions by providing a vessel to ship Syrian oil to a state-run company in China, potentially giving the government of President Bashar al-Assad a financial boost worth an estimated $80 million.

China has also shielded Assad from foreign intervention, vetoing two Western-backed resolutions at the United Nations over the bloodshed, and is not bound by Western sanctions against Syria, its oil sector and state oil firm Sytrol.

"The Syrians planned to sell the oil directly to the Chinese but they could not find a vessel," said an industry source who added that he had been asked to help Sytrol execute the deal but did not take part.

The source named the Chinese buyer as Zhuhai Zhenrong Corp, a state-run company hit by U.S. sanctions in January.

A Zhuhai Zhenrong spokeswoman said: "I've never heard about this." She declined further comment.

Urine-soaked eggs a spring taste treat in China city AND 9 Hilarious Twitter Reactions!

-"It's not an Easter Egg!" -Bucky. 

DONGYANG, China (Reuters) - It's the end of a school day in the eastern Chinese city of Dongyang, and eager parents collect their children after a hectic day of primary school.

But that's just the start of busy times for dozens of egg vendors across the city, deep in coastal Zhejiang province, who ready themselves to cook up a unique springtime snack favored by local residents.

Basins and buckets of boys' urine are collected from primary school toilets. It is the key ingredient in "virgin boy eggs", a local tradition of soaking and cooking eggs in the urine of young boys, preferably below the age of 10.

There is no good explanation for why it has to be boys' urine, just that it has been so for centuries.

The scent of these eggs being cooked in pots of urine is unmistakable as people pass the many street vendors in Dongyang who sell it, claiming it has remarkable health properties.

"If you eat this, you will not get heat stroke. These eggs cooked in urine are fragrant," said Ge Yaohua, 51, who owns one of the more popular "virgin boy eggs" stalls.
"They are good for your health. Our family has them for every meal. In Dongyang, every family likes eating them."

It takes nearly an entire day to make these unique eggs, starting off by soaking and then boiling raw eggs in a pot of urine. After that, the shells of the hard-boiled eggs are cracked and they continue to simmer in urine for hours.

Vendors have to keep pouring urine into the pot and controlling the fire to keep the eggs from being overheated and overcooked.

Ge said he has been making the snack, popular due to its fresh and salty taste, for more than 20 years. Each egg goes for 1.50 yuan ($0.24), a little more than twice the price of the regular eggs he also sells.

Many Dongyang residents, young and old, said they believed in the tradition passed on by their ancestors that the eggs decrease body heat, promote better blood circulation and just generally reinvigorate the body.

"By eating these eggs, we will not have any pain in our waists, legs and joints. Also, you will have more energy when you work," said Li Yangzhen, 59, who bought 20 eggs from Ge.

The eggs are not bought only at street stalls. Local residents are also known to personally collect boys' urine from nearby schools to cook the delicacy in their homes.
The popularity of the treat has led the local government to list the "virgin boy eggs" as an intangible cultural heritage.

But not everyone is a fan. Chinese medical experts gave mixed reviews about the health benefits of the practice, with some warning about sanitary issues surrounding the use of urine to cook the eggs.

Some Dongyang residents also said they hated the eggs.
"We have this tradition in Dongyang that these eggs are good for our health and that it would help prevent things like getting a cold," said Wang Junxing, 38. "I don't believe in all this, so I do not eat them."

Document the Women's World Boxing Championships in China

THANK YOU TO MY WONDERFUL DONORS FOR PUTTING ME OVER MY MINIMUM! My actual project costs will be about $3,500, so if you're thinking about donating, please do, as I can very much use help with hotel, food, and ground transportation costs. But I've got my plane ticket, so the hardest part is done!

This is the first year that women's boxing is an Olympic sport. With its inclusion, the 2012 Summer Games will be the first in history to have gender parity! I've been honored to follow the US women as they vie for spots in the Olympic ring.

The AIBA Women's World Championships in Qinhuangdao, China this May will determine which 36 women from around the world advance to compete in London. The US has three strong contenders in our Olympic Trials winners: middleweight Claressa Shields (the 16-yr-old phenom from Flint, Michigan), lightweight Queen Underwood (soulful survivor and moral center of the team), and flyweight Marlen Esparza (the cocky boxer-puncher), but these three will face tough competition from countries with outstanding women's programs, including China, Korea, Canada, Russia, and Poland.

I'll spend my time in China interviewing the fighters, trainers and local characters. I'll attend all the fights and watch the teams train. My daily blog updates will capture the narratives both inside and outside the ring. I did this recently from the US Olympic Trials in Spokane via the Huffington Post:

Day 1: The Draw. Day 2: What Boxing Needs. Day 3: Boxing Love. Day 4: The Trainers. Day 5: Weigh In. Day 6: The Kalispel Tribe. Day 7: Parting Shots.

I'll also work the material into a longer essay for the Threepenny Review that examines issues of gender in boxing, including the controversial issue of what women should wear in the ring. I'm hoping to follow the team to London as well.

I've gotten my nose bloodied in Madison Square Garden, my clock cleaned in Montreal, and I've briefly been the amateur featherweight champion of New York, all of which makes me uniquely qualified to document this historic moment. The great AJ Liebling wrote, "A boxer, like a writer, must stand alone." But this writer needs your help.

Apple gadget maker has 'significant' labor issues: audit - Yahoo!

Employees at each of the factories had exceeded a work-week limit of 76 hours set by Chinese law and, in some cases, worked more than seven days straight without a required 24-hour break, according to the Fair Labor Association.

"The Fair Labor Association gave Apple's largest supplier the equivalent of a full-body scan through 3,000 staff hours investigating three of its factories and surveying more than 35,000workers," said FLA president Auret van Heerden.Apple gadget maker has 'significant' labor issues: audit - Yahoo!

How China's New Love Affair with US Private Schools Is Changing Them Both

-As Chinese students flood private American high schools, aided by high-priced "consultants," they are changing concepts of success and security back home, and leading ambitious schools to seek out more of the eager (and often full-paying) mainlanders.

Just a few years ago, American private high schools seemed as distant to Chinese families conceptually as they are geographically. On Zhao Weibo's application list is Deerfield Academy, where I studied from 2005 to 2007. When I applied, I had to fly three hours from Beijing to Hong Kong for the mandatory interview; the 600-student boarding school tucked in rural Massachusetts didn't bother to hold information sessions on the mainland. China, though the world's most populous country, didn't have enough interested students. When I eventually decided to attend, my classmates were baffled. Parents' friends urged me to reconsider. Why give up a coveted spot in a competitive Chinese high school, they asked, in exchange for a school of unknown reputation thousands of miles away?

The paper quoted one of the twins as saying they did not want any publicity, fearing they would lose their jobs.  The two sisters dress in male clothing, never wearing skirts or growing their hair long, the newspaper said. They both attended the same schools and university.  The hospital put them through medical and psychological tests before agreeing to perform the surgeries, it said.  Under Chinese law, their legal gender will remain female until they complete the surgical procedures and apply for a change to their status, the newspaper said.

Chinese Student Punished for Calling Singaporeans 'Dogs,' Scholarship Rescinded.

A Chinese university student in Singapore has been fined and ordered to perform community service for calling Singaporeans "dogs" in a microblog. In addition to three months community service and a fine of Sg$3000 ($2374), Sun Xu, a 25-year-old senior

Last month, Sun enraged Singaporeans by posting on popular Chinese microblogging site Weibo that "there are more dogs than people" in the city-state, whose resident population is 74 percent ethnic Chinese.

In his post, the mechanical engineering student expressed annoyance at elderly Singaporeans who stared at him or scolded him when he accidentally bumped into them in public places.

Reactions online to Sun's punishment were split, with some netizens saying it was sufficient and others demanding harsher penalties.

"No, it isn't enough. We want NUS to expel him and pay back all the $ spent on him," reader David S.C. Wong posted on the Channel NewsAsia.

But NUS law undergraduate Eddy Hirono said Sun's punishment was fair.

How To Use Chopsticks -VideoJug

-I'm lost. 

How To Use Chopsticks

Eating with chopsticks can be intimidating, especially for those who haven't learned to use them from a young age. In this film we show you the basics of using chopsticks in the Chinese method.Eating with chopsticks can be intimidating, especially for those who haven't learned to use them from a young age. In this film we show you the basics of using chopsticks in the Chinese method.

Step 1: Holding the chopsticks

The important thing with chopsticks is that you find a method of holding them that allows you to eat easily and comfortably. Traditionally chopsticks are always held in the right hand, but this is not set in stone so you can adapt this method to suit your own requirements. If you're using wooden chopsticks, start by rubbing them together to rub off any loose splinters. When learning to hold chopsticks, it is helpful to place them into your hand one at a time. Lay the first chopstick between the base of your thumb and the tip of your ring finger, with the narrow end pointing away from you. It should be able to lay there comfortably. Then take hold of the second chopstick between the tip of your thumb and index finger. Practice a pinching movement with the chopsticks by moving the top chopstick down toward the bottom one. Although it customary to use the middle finger to grip the top chopstick, some people find it easier to use the middle finger on the bottom chopstick. When first learning to use chopsticks it may be easier to hold them towards the front, the narrow end, but as you become more confident you should hold them closer to the back at the broad ends. Also, as you become more experienced, you will be able to pick the chopsticks up and get them into position with one movement of your right hand, not involving the left hand at all. If you've picked up your chopsticks and the ends are uneven, you can tap them on the table to get them even.

Step 2: Handling food

If you're dishing food from a shared serving bowl into your own bowl, either use a pair of serving chopsticks, or use the wider end of your own chopsticks. Never take food from a shared bowl with the narrow end of chopsticks which have been in your mouth. Chinese food, whether it's meat, fish or vegetables, is usually served in strips or cubes, so each piece can simply be picked up with the tips of the chopsticks and eaten whole. Chinese rice is prepared so that it is sticky, and can easily be picked up in clumps with chopsticks. If you're eating noodles, it is not considered rude to slurp noodles into your mouth, but if you feel more comfortable you can twist the noodles into a ball and eat it whole. At the end of the meal, or any time you need to lay your chopsticks down, lay them with narrow end on a chopstick stand. If you don't have a stand, lay them against the edge of your bowl.

Step 3: Etiquette

There are a number of ways of using chopsticks which are considered bad table manners in Chinese dining. For instance, never stick your chopsticks standing upright in a bowl of food. This mimics a Chinese funeral ritual, so it is seen as a symbol of death. Also, never stab food with the point of a chopstick - the chopsticks are designed for pinching not stabbing. Also, when dishing up from a shared serving bowl, it is considered rude to dig around for the choicest pieces, so always take the food nearest to you. It's also seen as an insult to your host if you don't finish all the food that you are given. If you are struggling to pick up the last pieces of rice in your bowl with your chopsticks, you can lift the bowl to your mouth and shovel the rice in with your chopsticks. It is considered polite to eat every last grain of rice. Enjoy!

-I can't wait for the Chinese RV movie!

China Tips (or a Blonde's Guide to Teaching in China) By Felicia Brings

China Tips (or a Blonde's Guide to Teaching in China) By Felicia Brings

"China Tips" is Felicia Brings’ very brief compendium of practical advice to westerners who expect to travel or work in China. After writing "No Hugging in China," her quirky memoir of a half-year spent as a (self-avowed) Blonde New Yorker teaching in Guangdong Province, Ms. Brings compiled "China Tips" so that she might assist westerners in navigating the customs, manner and mores of the Chinese people and institutions. Amusing and useful at the same time, "China Tips" tackles the pressing issues most travel books don't address, like where to find coffee, how to use a lazy susan in a restaurant, what toilet paper is for, etc.

Co-author of the iconic and popular OLDER WOMEN/YOUNGER MEN, Felicia Brings was born in Munich, Germany and grew up in New York City. She taught writing at Monterey Peninsula College in California as well as at LIM in NYC. She lived and taught in China during a very tumultuous period - the buildup to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the coldest winter ever recorded, the worst earthquake in 30 years and the biggest uprising in Tibet in 20 years. Her memoir about her experiences there, NO HUGGING IN CHINA is currently available on e-books. See the trailer and read Felicia's blog at and 'like'her on facebook,
