CHINA'S COPYCAT AUSTRIAN VILLAGE, Completely copied down to the church spire and angel statues

-I've heard of copied CDs and DVDs... 


You've heard of pirated cd's, watches and bags from China, How about a replica Austrian village?
http://youtu.be/gcwl7Gt3aew

A group of Austrians whose scenic mountain village has been copied down to the statues by a Chinese developer attended Saturday's opening in China for the high-end residential project but were still miffed about how the company did it.
Chinese developer unveils replica Austrian village | Business & Technology | The Seattle Times:

The original is a centuries-old village of 800 people and a UNESCO heritage site that survives on tourism. The copycat is a housing estate that thrives on China’s new rich. In a China famous for pirated products, the replica Hallstatt sets a new standard.

The Chinese Hallstatt features a church spire, a town square ringed by pastel-colored buildings and angel statues. They’re among architectural flourishes inspired by the original.

Chinese developer unveils replica of Austrian hamlet as villagers’ wariness lingers - The Washington Post:

"They should have asked the owners of the hotel and the other buildings if we agree with the idea to rebuild Hallstatt in China, and they did not," hotel owner Monika Wenger said ahead of the opening ceremony. "And that was a big problem we had with this project here."

People in Hallstatt first learned a year ago of Minmetals' plan when a Chinese guest at Wenger's hotel who was involved with the project inadvertently spilled the beans. Minmetals staff had been taking photos and gathering data while mingling with tourists, raising suspicions among villagers.

Minmetals Land is the real estate development arm of China Minmetals Corp., China's largest metals trader.

China’s deserted fake Disneyland

-Mickey has moved on, or been eaten! 

Situated on an area of around 100 acres, and 45 minutes drive from the center of Beijing, are the ruins of ‘Wonderland’. Construction stopped more than a decade ago, with developers promoting it as ‘the largest amusement park in Asia’. Funds were withdrawn due to disagreements over property prices with the local government and farmers. So what is left are the skeletal remains of a palace, a castle, and the steel beams of what could have been an indoor playground in the middle of a corn field.

Writer: Alison Klayman
Studio: IFC Films

Plot:
AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY is the first feature-length film about the internationally renowned Chinese artist and activist, Ai Weiwei.

From 2008 to 2010, Beijing-based journalist and filmmaker Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to Ai Weiwei. Klayman documented Ai's artistic process in preparation for major museum exhibitions, his intimate exchanges with family members and his increasingly public clashes with the Chinese government.

(Chinese) Culture Still Matters - From Victor Davis Hanson

A wicked smart guy, columnist and historian, Victor Davis Hanson's latest piece  talks about the cultural differences in Europe but it has amazing similarities in China.  He writes:

But government-driven efforts to change national behavior often ignore stubborn cultural differences that reflect centuries of complex history as well as ancient habits and adaptations to geography and climate. Greeks can no more easily give up siestas than the Swiss can mandate two-hour afternoon naps. If tax cheating is a national pastime in Palermo, by comparison it is difficult along the Rhine.

This is so true as what's been happening in China for the last 60 or so years.  Government driven efforts to overcome the culture and in each attempt they failed.  The Chinese will always yearn to breath free and make money no matter what the government and what the political situation.

Mr. Hanson continues:

...over the years I have developed an unscientific and haphazard -- but often accurate -- politically incorrect method of guessing whether a nation is likely to be perennially insolvent and wracked by corruption.
 
Do average passersby throw down or pick up litter? After a minor fender-bender, do drivers politely exchange information, or do they scream and yell with wild gesticulations? Is honking constant or sporadic? Are crosswalks sacrosanct? Do restaurant dinners usually start or wind down at 9 P.M.? Can you drink tap water, or should you avoid it? Do you mostly pay what the price tag says, or are you expected to pay in untaxed cash and then haggle over the unstated cost? Are construction sites clearly marked and fenced to protect pedestrians, or do you risk walking into an open pit or getting stabbed by exposed rebar?

The only thing in that list that wouldn't fit with China is the restaurant closing at 9pm. The rest of that is ALL the spitting image of China.  Amazing.  Perhaps he's correct as China is wracked with corruption and soon to be insolvent!

Diablo 3 Being Called "Big Pineapple" in China to Dodge Sales Ban

大菠萝 Dà bōluó 

Vendors on one of China's largest e-commerce platforms are resorting to calling the hit PC game Diablo 3 "Big Pineapple," which sounds similar in Mandarin Chinese, as a way to dodge the site's censors. The site has banned the sale of the overseas product pending a review from government authorities.

U.S. developer Blizzard launched Diablo 3 earlier this month, bringing its highly anticipated game to Taiwan and South Korea. But the launch has stopped short of coming to China, which requires imported games to be cleared by the government's Ministry of Culture. The review can take months, as was the case with one of Blizzard's previous titles, Starcraft 2, which received approval by the ministry half a year after its initial launch in July 2010.

"What Chinese Want" Tom Doctoroff's CBS Interview about Chinese Consumer Culture

-They want to be themselves... 


What Chinese Want: Culture, Communism and China's Modern Consumer

Today China is a critical player in the global marketplace, but there is still widespread confusion about what really makes the country tick - even the Chinese have difficulty explaining their own "Chineseness" to outsiders. In What Chinese Want, China expert Tom Doctoroff posits that China’s distinguishing traits explain the country in profound ways, including:

*Connection to History: For thousands of years, the impulses and conflicts within Chinese civilization have driven its people’s behavior and choices. More than any other nationality, they are driven by their past history as much as by their intense focus on the future. This manifests itself in a profound belief in their country's stability and an intense national pride that often drives business decisions.

*A Complex View of Morality: As evidenced by their sticky human rights issues, rampant piracy, and
endemic government corruption, the Chinese have a significantly higher tolerance for certain things the
West would consider wrong. Doctoroff puts these differences in context so that the reader can understand their nuances and impact on business and international relations.

*Family Over the Individual: Whereas in America the individual is a prized source of originality, freewill, and consumer choice, in China the focus is squarely on the family and the larger society. This difference can be seen in the educational system, entrepreneurial activity, and many other key aspects of Chinese society.From the new generation’s embrace of Christmas to the secrecy of industry titans; from the government’s meticulously incremental approach to currency appreciation to the middle class’s fixation with luxury brands, Doctoroff explains the mysteries of modern China for those looking to enter the market in a culturally sensitive and effective way.




"Brilliantly written, colourful, witty and well signposted, so that readers know the lessons they are meant to draw from each chapter before moving on to the next one.”--Financial Times

"What Chinese Want is generous with facts and figures but draws greater strength from the author's insights and experiences. His description of a visit to the Shanghai Zoo is more revealing of the Chinese consumer than is an exhaustive compilation of demographic data."--Inc.

"With insight and energy, Doctoroff…takes on the daunting task of explaining the Chinese character… This in-depth, lively précis of modern-day China is an invaluable guide to anyone hoping to do business in the fast-growing Eastern market."--Publishers Weekly

"A primer on Chinese consumers [with] each paragraph delivering a takeaway pearl of wisdom… A no-nonsense book by an enlightened capitalist.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Gaining familiarity with China's basic philosophies and culture will help businesspeople create new opportunities, offer competitive advantages, and avoid pitfalls. Doctoroff offers his readers practical advice as well as examples of successful marketing campaigns in China…An essential read.”--Library Journal

"Do not go to China - with your product, your ideas or yourself - without reading this book. Tom Doctoroff is a triple value interpreter; marketer, historian and philosopher of all things China."--Charlotte Beers, former Chairman Ogilvy, J. Walter Thompson, and author of I'd Rather Be in Charge

"It takes decades for outsiders to begin to understand how China really works. In his latest book, Tom has distilled a career worth of professional and personal reflections into a potent cocktail of insights. This book is a must-read shortcut for any guest working in China trying to make sense of the overwhelming complexity and depth of China's consumer landscape."--Alan Jope, President, Unilever, North Asia

It reads like a memoir in food with accompanying pictures to make your mouth water.

Crocodile in the Yangtze: The Story of Jack Ma and how Alibaba Beat Ebay

-DISTRIBUTE DISSEMINATE DISPERSE! Let's get this guy's movie funded! 


ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Dear Kickstarter Community,

I'm hoping to get your support to help share share a story which I sincerely believe can help inspire entrepreneurs and creatives around the world -- a film which Inc.Magazine called, "Gripping...Emotional...the real-life version of The SocialNetwork, only in Mandarin!"

The film is an independent memoir of my experience working alongside China's first Internet entrepreneur and former English teacher, Jack Ma. I joined his company, Alibaba.com, just as it moved out of an apartment and watched as the team grew to 16,000+ employees, challenging - and beating - eBay in China along the way.

After leaving the company in 2008, I was able to acquire 200 hours of footage from more than 35 sources which follows the company from its early beginnings into a global company and captures many behind-the-scenes moments. After studying film editing and assembling a professional team to collaborate on the film, I put something together which I believe captures the emotional ups and downs of life in a high-growth startup.

My driving motivation behind the film is to promote entrepreneurship and inspire others who may have a dream of their own. So within the film I candidly discuss not only Alibaba's successes, but also mistakes that were made by the company along the way. And I attempt to show at a very human level of the challenges entrepreneurs in China faced as the Internet brought China face-to-face with the West.

Where does your contribution go?

Your contribution will help cover the costs of licensing the archival footage & music used in the film as well as help me obtain E&O liability insurance so that I can secure global distribution of the film.

Any additional funds beyond the minimum will be used to fund costs associated with a screening and speaking tour to universities, business schools and events which encourage entrepreneurship.

As you can see - I offer some great incentives which include a Q&A for your company or organization in which I candidly discuss how a startup grew to a company with 16,000+ employees in just 10 years. So if you can bring a few people together to contribute, I'd even be happy to see you at your event or company to share the story for your own team to benefit.

Thanks for your support!

Lured by the excitement of joining an Internet startup, Porter joined Alibaba.com in April 2000, just as the company moved out of a small apartment.

From 2000-2008, Porter worked as a Vice-President at Alibaba.com and Alibaba Group, at various times leading the company’s international website operations, international marketing and corporate affairs. In 2002, Porter took a year off from Alibaba to travel around-the-world, during which time he spent two months riding a bicycle across China retracing the southern route of the Long March.

Porter’s career began in Washington, DC in 1992-1994 where he taught leadership workshops for high school students at the Close Up Foundation, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to hands-on education about the US democratic system.

Leon Panetta: A Crippling Cyber Attack Would Be 'Act of War'

read more in http://afp.phrepublic.info/?q=China-Cyber-Attack-Would-Be-Act-of-War

I sat down with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta for a "This Week" interview and we discussed the growing threat from China. Read our exchange on the cyber threat from China and check out our complete conversation in the web-only video below to find out how concerned Panetta is about the Asian power's aggression in the South China Sea.

TAPPER: So, you are headed to Asia, and you will be meeting with your Chinese counterpart in Singapore. You've said that we face the possibility of a cyber attack. This is one of the things you talked about last time with me, about how this was a very big, serious issue of concern for you. And you said it could be the equivalent of Pearl Harbor.

The Pentagon has acknowledged recently China is the biggest source of cyber attacks against this country, including stealing our military secrets. Newt Gingrich spoke about this threat on the campaign trail often. He said cyber attacks, cyber spying, are quote, "acts of war." Do you agree? Are they acts of war, and how would the United States respond?

PANETTA: Well, there's no question that if a cyber attack, you know, crippled our power grid in this country, took down our financial systems, took down our government systems, that that would constitute an act of war.

But what we're involved with here is the effort to make sure that never happens. And in order to do that, we've got to engage. You know, I think it's important for us to engage China in this effort.

That's one of the issues I raised when the minister of defense came here from China. How can we better engage on this issue, to share information and to ensure that those kinds of attacks never happen, because this is an area where the technology is developing quickly and where clearly it is becoming an adjunct in terms of any country that moves against another country militarily.

This is something we've got to pay attention to. And it's not only with China. We've got to engage Russia. We've got to engage other countries in an effort to try to develop some kind of standards here that will assure us that just as we did in the nuclear area, we can take steps to prevent a mistake that could be very damaging to our security.

"Born in the early 80’s, I never learned much about the Vietnam War. I kind of remember a song called “Xueran de fengcai”(血染的风采) commemorating the war heroes of the War with Vietnam. However since then, the war has barely been mentioned in public like it never happened. Of course, “Peaceful Rise” is the current government line. A war with a neighboring country which occurred over 30 years ago doesn’t fit this theme."

He talked about how his brigade went through all kinds of tough battles, humid weather, and dangerous ambushes in Vietnam. He said, “Many young people don’t even know about our Vietnam War any more”, he sighed. ”We once sacrificed our lives for the country, but right now nobody cares. Now we are in our 50s, we just have to work fourteen hours to make ends meet.”

Promoting the Internet Travel Program of Beijing with Motion Graphics

-This is really cool. Well done. 


Intro:

As we all might have known, Beijing is the capital of China where it is also considered to be one of the largest cultural centers. Because of its mysteries and long historical heritages, visitors from all over the world love to travel and to witness such miracle. So, an Internet travel program featuring Beijing is the primary and complete stage to introduce China to the world. Audiences, especially travelers will always enjoy watching a high-quality Internet travel channel with a stylish, yet informative title sequence. As a result, my thesis project aims to use a new computer graphic design technique to create and to promote the original title sequences.

For the title sequence, I design a fictitious Internet travel program called “Hey Beijing”. The elements mostly include various famous architectures from not only the old historical side, but also a brand new cutting-edge perspective.
