China Tries To Make Australia An Offer It Can't Refuse

-Chinese kind of sounds like the muffled words of the Godfather, doesn't it? 

http://youtu.be/SeldwfOwuL8


The Far East: If there were ever any doubts about China's aggressive military intentions in the Pacific, its warning to Australia last week to choose itself a U.S. or Chinese "godfather" ought to remove all of them.

In what can only be construed as a direct threat to a top U.S. ally, Song Xiaojun, a "retired" Chinese general, told the Sydney Morning Herald that "Australia has to find a godfather sooner or later."

"Australia always has to depend on somebody else, whether it is to be the 'son' of the U.S. or 'son' of China," Song said, adding that Australia had best choose China because it all "depends on who is more powerful and based on the strategic environment."

May 25, 1977: Star Wars Opens and the Chinese Government Lifts the Ban on Shakespeare, Star Wars dubbed (badly) in Chinese!

-The worst dubbed Chinese version of Star Wars EVER! 

http://youtu.be/jg4Ae7xPEf4

A new sign of political liberalization appears in China, when the communist government lifts its decade-old ban on the writings of William Shakespeare. The action by the Chinese government was additional evidence that the Cultural Revolution was over.

The Cultural Revolution among other things meant the banning of any cultural work--music, literature, film, or theater--that did not have the required ideological content. By the early 1970s, however, China was desperate to open new and improved relations with the West, particularly the United States, partially because of its desire for new sources of trade but also because of its increasing fear of confrontation with the Soviet Union. PresidentRichard Nixon's 1973 trip to China was part of this campaign. In October 1976, the Cultural Revolution was officially declared ended, and the May 1977 announcement of the end of the ban on the works of William Shakespeare was clear evidence of this. It was a move that cost little, but was sure to reap public relations benefits with Western society that often looked askance at China's puritanical and repressive cultural life.

Together with the announcement that the ban was lifted, the Chinese government also stated that a Chinese-language edition of the Bard's works would soon be available.

On this day in 1977, Memorial Day weekend opens with an intergalactic bang as the first of George Lucas' blockbuster Star Wars movies hits American theaters.

The incredible success of Star Wars--it received seven Oscars, and earned $461 million in U.S. ticket sales and a gross of close to $800 million worldwide--began with an extensive, coordinated marketing push by Lucas and his studio, 20th Century Fox, months before the movie's release date. "It wasn't like a movie opening," actress Carrie Fisher, who played rebel leader Princess Leia, later told Time magazine. "It was like an earthquake." Beginning with--in Fisher's words--"a new order of geeks, enthusiastic young people with sleeping bags," the anticipation of a revolutionary movie-watching experience spread like wildfire, causing long lines in front of movie theaters across the country and around the world.

Shanghainese Woman Held in Fetus Death is Free on Bond

-Sad story. 

INDIANAPOLIS – A Chinese immigrant who tried to kill herself by eating rat poison was free on bond Tuesday after more than a year in an Indianapolis jail on charges that she killed her 33-week-old fetus.

Bei Bei Shuai lugging a plastic bag full of her belongings and leaned on her attorney as she walked up a ramp toward reporters and friends waiting on the sidewalk outside the jail.

“I feel very happy,” the 35-year-old Shanghai native said moments before she broke into tears and hugged her friends.

Defense attorney Linda Pence said one of Shuai’s first moves would be to call her mother in China. Work on preparing for Shuai’s Dec. 3 trial, she said, could wait a day.

“Today is a day of celebration,” Pence said.

Shuai was 33 weeks pregnant when she ate rat poison on Dec. 23, 2010, after her boyfriend broke up with her. Shuai was hospitalized and doctors detected little wrong with the fetus’ health for the first few days.

The premature girl, Angel Shuai, was delivered by cesarean section Dec. 31, but she died from bleeding in the brain three days later after being removed from life support.

Prosecutors charged Shuai with murder in March 2011, arguing that a suicide note she wrote showed she intended to kill her baby as well as herself....

Shanghai Cartoon Studio makes a Cartoon for kids! 快乐心心 First 3 Episodes!

-Silly but a good show! 

快乐心心01



Chinese cartoonist Carol Liu Hong built her studio from scratch, doing post-production work for TV commercials and then, once she broke even, realizing her dream of creating cartoons for Chinese kids.

Breaking into a market dominated by state media companies has been tough — even more so now that Kungfu Panda creator DreamWorks Animation SKG and other big cartoon giants are launching their own local studios in China.

Liu has gotten some help. Seeking to nurture creative industries, the Shanghai government gave her studio, Shanghai Cartoon Communication Group, a choice location. But its success so far mainly stems from its ability to balance cartoon making with sales of related products, she says.

Her company has turned out about 10 cartoon movies, including "Kuaile Xinxin," or "Happy Sweetie," comic stories about a little girl aimed at 2- to 5-year-olds that won top prize for "excellent animation" from the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television last year.

Despite the challenges, "We are in a good period," Liu says.

"Every year, 20 million children are born here," she says. "Thanks to the one-child policy, each child tends to have six adults spending money on them, so the environment is very good."

Ha Wenyi: Chinese Everest Climber dead, Media coverage

-Why? Just because it's there! 

Dr. Kenneth Kamler recalls his harrowing experience on a climb towards the summit of Mt. Everest in 1996 when a lethal 2-day storm kicked up. The event, documented by writer Jon Krakauer in his bestselling book Into Thin Air, would lead to the deaths of eight climbers and leave several others -- including Kamler -- stranded and fighting for their lives.

In this presentation, Kamler explores the effects of the disaster, the rescue, and the relentless drive of human survival.

EG is the celebration of the American entertainment industry. Since 1984, Richard Saul Wurman has created extraordinary gatherings about learning and understanding. EG is a rich extension of these ideas - a conference that explores the attitude of understanding in music, film, television, radio, technology, advertising, gaming, interactivity and the web - The Entertainment Gathering

Kenneth "Ken" Kamler is a microsurgeon and mountain climber. Kamler was chosen by New York Magazine as one of New York City's best doctors in 2002. He is a microsurgeon trained at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center who also practices extreme medicine in the most remote corners of the world. He has served as chief high altitude physician for the NASA-sponsored research in human physiological responses to extreme altitude.

Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster

As covered in the book Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer, in May 1996, Kamler was at Camp III on Mount Everest preparing for a summit attempt when a ferocious storm engulfed three teams of climbers returning from the peak. As the only doctor on the mountain when the storm hit, he treated the survivors as they descended from Camp IV.

A climber and doctor on many Everest expeditions, he has worked with National Geographic to carry out geological research and precision mapping using laser telescopes and global positioning satellite beacons. He appeared on ABC's Nightline in the first-ever live interview from Everest base camp. and has appeared many times on national television. Kamler lives in the New York City area.http://youtu.be/Bgqc2m7aBzs


登珠峰 Dēng zhū fēng Climb Mt. Everest
----------------
Some 200 people will attempt to scale the 8,848-metre (29,029-foot) summit this weekend when the weather is expected to provide the next safe window for the ascent, said Nepal tourism official Gyanendra Shrestha.

Everest overcrowding raises fears after four deaths - Telegraph:

“On that day, there were too many people to go climb the Everest, there were too many traffic jams,” her outfitter, Ganesh Thakuri, managing director of Utmost Adventure Trekking Pvt. Ltd., said by telephone Tuesday after he returned from base camp.

“When it was over 8,500 metres, she loses her stamina and she was very weak … They tried to get her to go back but [she] did not listen. She wanted to go to the summit anyhow. It took a very long time. It was 22 hours to go on top of Everest for her. On the way back down, she lost her energy.”


A similar crowd of 208 climbers headed to the summit last week, and four died Saturday in one of the deadliest days ever on the mountain.

Ha Wenyi of China, Eberhard Schaaf of Germany, Nepal-born Canadian Shriya Shah and South Korean Song Won-bin died on their descents from the summit, apparently from exhaustion and altitude sickness.

登珠峰,国内登山者最好走北坡That's what happened to four climbers last weekend. Dr. Eberhard Schaaf of Germany, Song Won-bin of South Korea, and Canadian Shriya Shah died while trying to descend from the peak. There are new reports today that the body of Ha Wenyi of China was also discovered, according to USA Today.

More climbers are attempting to summit the peak every year during climbing season between late March and the beginning of June. They spend weeks getting used to lower levels of oxygen at different camps at increasingly higher altitudes, carrying their packs. The Telegraph reports this year, favorable conditions for climbing to the top didn't occur until last Friday, which was later than usual.

十成: Shi Cheng: Short Stories from Urban China


-No factories, no urban fiction cliches! 

Shi Cheng (10 Cities)
Shi Cheng means "10 cities" and reveals the structural concept of this book, one in a series of story collections about groups of cities. The idea of the city as a "character" in fiction or film is very much of our times and conjures up notions of ceaseless noise and activity, the alienation of the individual in the roiling mass. These stories confound such expectations. Not only do they resist the noirish clichés of "urban fiction", they deny us any of the themes we might expect from China; children are not an issue here, nor factory life, and only one story touches on social organisation.

-Each one said "it's a blessing to be jerkin' in China." 

This year for the first time on the KOD battle stage, four members from various Jerk Crews were selected to form a super crew known as the Avengers, to perform a special showcase, during the final battles. We are very proud to announce that AF Gary, Davey Boy, Sick Nick, and Showtime, now known as the Avengers will be leaving for Beijing, China to represent the jerk dance movement happening all around the world.

When Vlado first caught wind of the jerk dance craze, we wanted to show our support for something positive, something that kids could do to channel their energy and creativity. Our goal is to empower our youth by encouraging them to embrace and showcase their talent. Many forms of street dance have all been originated from the U.S, and that is why, we as a community must continue supporting one another. Lets all send our support and wish the best of luck to all the U.S. dancers.

China and Capitalism Watch: Slovoj Zizek, NYTimes Attacks Capitalism like Xinhua, Response to "Fables of Wealth"

-Lots of hate out there for Capitalism... all based on MYTHS! 

"Most Dangerous Philosopher" - This is a summary of Slovoj Zizek's way of thinking with precise explanations which for me is easier to listen to where Zizek is not so manic. Slovoj Zizek is a self-described "Complicated Communist Philosopher" who is intrigued by the Stalinist phenomenon and the movie Kung Fu Panda. "I'm ONLY a communist in the sense that Communism addresses the problems of the commons. Nature out there is our common ground. I am not Communist at the level of answers." Charlie Rose does a wonderful job of keeping Zizek's rapid-fire mind on track and on topic. "Philosophers allow us to ask the right questions." Slavoj Žižek is a prolific author and former candidate for the Presidency of Slovenia in the Council of Presidents of Yugoslavia. Zizek acknowledged that China was moving toward Capitalism and paid homage to Li Quan Yu (or Lee Kuan Yew), benevolent dictator of Singapore, who, "Invented Capitalism with Asian values." Solutions can not be generalized. Solutions need to be evolved on the micro level, NOT on the macro level because then they are not really solutions, they are only superficial bandaids that only cover the wound to hide it rather than help heal the wound. This does not address all of the political compromises that make WORSE problems than any viable solutions provide for. Zizek also talks about the dangers of Zionist politics and the paradox of Zionist anti-semitism.

The following is such a joke of an opinion essay.  There is so much hidden vitriol here of someone who was either laid off, cheated or had too many coffee machines made in China break down on him.  The quip about business school is hilarious because it so petty and silly.  Name one economic system where there aren't widows and orphans being robbed?  I love his point about ethics in Capitalism being optional, as if ethics in government or communism isn't.  Is anyone surprised this was published in the New York Times?  This could have easily been written by a no name in the Xinhua New Agency.  The author should stick to writing about Jane Austen, I'm sure he's better at it than writing about capitalism. -Chinastories.net editors.

"THERE is an ongoing debate in this country about the rich: who they are, what their social role may be, whether they are good or bad. Well, consider the following. A 2010 study found that 4 percent of a sample of corporate managers met a clinical threshold for being labeled psychopaths, compared with 1 percent for the population at large.

I always found the notion of a business school amusing. What kinds of courses do they offer? Robbing Widows and Orphans? Grinding the Faces of the Poor? Having It Both Ways? Feeding at the Public Trough?

There are ethical corporations, yes, and ethical businesspeople, but ethics in capitalism is purely optional, purely extrinsic. To expect morality in the market is to commit a category error. Capitalist values are antithetical to Christian ones. (How the loudest Christians in our public life can also be the most bellicose proponents of an unbridled free market is a matter for their own consciences.) Capitalist values are also antithetical to democratic ones. Like Christian ethics, the principles of republican government require us to consider the interests of others. Capitalism, which entails the single-minded pursuit of profit, would have us believe that it’s every man for himself."

This chart is remarkable. Even if China cooks its books, as is alleged, the country doesn’t seem to have had 
a recession in the last 30 years. GDP growth briefly dipped in 2009 to 6% or so, but is back around 10% again. To our knowledge this longevity of rapid growth without a recession is unprecedented in the history of major developing economies. (There are some anomalous growth rates in the early part of the chart that are due to China’s GDP being almost non-existent during the Cultural Revolution.)
