A convenience store owner fought back with bear spray and a spanking when he was confronted by two would-be thieves.
A Gatineau, Que. convenience-store owner fought back with bear spray and a spanking when he was confronted by two would-be robbers at his shop Tuesday night.
Surveillance video from the store shows two men, faces partially obscured by hoods and scarves, holding what appear to be small knives as they gesture toward the cash register.
Store owner Zhen Yang speaks on a cordless phone as he moves slowly back toward a small office. That's when he pulls out a small can and releases a torrent of bear spray on the would-be thieves, sending one running out of the store.
The second man remains in the store and confronts Yang behind the counter, but Yang is not prepared to back down. He throws a chair at the remaining would-be robber and then throws the man over the counter.
As the man dangles over the counter, Yang delivers the final humiliating blow: a spanking as his pants slowly slide off his hips.
"I just want to protect myself, a customer and my life," Yang told CTV Ottawa. "They had a knife. It was scary to me."
He said the bear spray was all he had on hand to defend himself.
On Wednesday, customers were divided on whether Yang was wise to fight back.
"It's hard to decide," said customer Robert St. George. "I mean, you hand over your labour, all of the money you make. If you don't teach them a lesson they will rob them."
Customer Paul Boucher, meanwhile, said Yang could have been hurt.
"He could have been stabbed," Boucher said. "I would have given him his money."
Gatineau Police Sgt. Jean-Paul Lemay said it's rare for police to see a potential victim fight back.
"It's not something we recommend," Lemay said. "But the Criminal Code does allow people to defend themselves and make citizen's arrest. This is what happened."
While one man got away, the other was arrested and charged with armed robbery.

China: The Pessoptimist Nation
The rise of China presents a long-term challenge to the world not only economically, but politically and culturally. Callahan meets this challenge in China: The Pessoptimist Nation by using new Chinese sources and innovative analysis to see how Chinese people understand their new place in the world.
To chart the trajectory of its rise, the book shifts from examining China's national interests to exploring its national aesthetic. Rather than answering the standard social science question "what is China?" with statistics of economic and military power, this book asks "when, where, and who is China?" to explore the soft power dynamics of China's identity politics.
China: The Pessoptimist Nation shows how the heart of Chinese foreign policy is not a security dilemma, but an identity dilemma. Through careful analysis, Callahan charts how Chinese identity emerges through the interplay of positive and negative feelings in a dynamic that intertwines China's domestic and international politics. China thus is the pessoptimist nation where national security is closely linked to nationalist insecurities.

This is the dramatic moment a Chinese toddler came terrifyingly close to a deadly plunge - after getting his head stuck on a balcony handrail while his parents were out.
The young boy had wandered towards a fourth floor balcony in an apartment building in Guangzhou, China, only to get his head wedged in the handrail.
But after exploring the view in his parents apartment, the boy's accident left his head jammed between the railings - and his body dangling perilously over a 40ft drop.
The dramatic scenes continued when neighbours below climbed up towards the boy to prevent him falling to his death.
A man dressed in a yellow t-shirt was spotted climbing up from a balcony below along window grid bars, before supporting the child with his feet as the infant tried to haul himself back indoors.
And within minutes of the terrified toddler being spotted, a crowd had assembled at street level with a large yellow blanket at the ready to catch him if he fell.
After several minutes of wondering if the child would survive or fall several stories, the youngster eventually managed to pull himself back into his home.
From ABC News
A quick-thinking neighbor held the boy in place until help arrived.
China Feces News: 6 Stinky Tweets, Shanghai Woman hit by falling feces wins $$ and Poo Power: Changing Livestock Poo into Energy

Woman wins 600 yuan after falling feces hit her:
Even if Chinese people cook dog poop it still be good— dariel alvarez (@TuPapiShampoo_) June 6, 2012
"A woman has won 600 yuan ($94) in compensation, after she was struck by falling feces wrapped in tissue from a residential building this year, a local court said Monday.
The unidentified woman and her son were on their way home in January, when she was hit in front of a neighborhood community on Shouguang Road in Pudong New Area.
She was disgusted when she learned what had fallen on her. After cleaning herself off, she went to the neighborhood committee to complain. Two social workers accompanied her to ask building residents where the filthy tissues could have come from. But, no one they asked admitted to tossing anything out of the window that day.
She went back to the same spot the next day with her camera to take photos, when she saw some remaining tissues hanging on wires above the second floor. Judging by the position of the tissues, it was believed that they were thrown from above the second floor.
However, the guilty party could not be identified, and as such, four households, on the third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors, were ordered to jointly shoulder the blame and each pay 150 yuan to contribute to the total compensation. "

Livestock Waste Energy in China "Poo Power" -ecoideasnet
In Shenyang, China, more farms are installing equipment that generates methane gas by storing livestock waste underground.
The smell is filtered out and then the gas is used for cooking.
The leftover waste can be used as fertilizer for crops.

The Chinese government claims it's making serious efforts to clean up pollution. But as this horrifying report shows, much of their 'success' has involved simply moving their toxic industries out of sight.
"It's risky, but we have no other choice: We only have this river," Wu Zhuliang tell us from his remote farm in South Western China. For Wu and his family their reliance on the river, which runs yellow with pollution, has had terrible consequences. They buried his son just over a month ago. He had been diagnosed with two types of cancer, Leukaemia and Thymoma, and had been in so much pain he said to his mother, "open the window and I'll jump out". The water from Wu's river was found to have levels of chromium, a known carcinogen, "200 times higher than the national standard". Ma Tianjie from Greenpeace tells us it's so toxic that, "simply touching the water, it could make your skin itchy. It's a very, very serious problem." All across rural China the same stories abound. The government is cleaning up the cities, but often the most toxic industries are simply moved to rural areas where regulations are lax. Chinese farmers are now four times more likely to die from liver cancer than the global average. "The government is trying to find a way to get rid of this huge pile of historically accumulated waste but they are struggling."

US Conservative @JonahNRO Sees an "Upside of the Downside" as Chinese Character Tattoos are Removed and US becoming more like China!
-Interesting and optimistic piece. Read the whole thing! Money line: "Kung Pao Chicken Pants!" HA!
One of my heroes, Irving Kristol, used to say that there's nothing wrong with the country a bad recession couldn't fix. Kristol wasn't hoping for a recession, he was merely making the point that so many of the problems with our culture, both popular and political, were the sorts of challenges that come with affluence.
Wealth makes it easier to abandon the old customs, rituals, and habits of the heart that generated the wealth in the first place....
For years intellectuals looked enviously at the way the Japanese live in multigenerational homes. Grandma and Grandpa looked after the grandkids, and everyone looked after Grandma and Grandpa. From 2008 to 2010, American multigenerational households increased at a faster rate than in the previous eight years combined, according to AARP.
In perhaps the most welcome news, laser tattoo removals have increased by 32 percent from 2011 to 2012 alone. "Employment reasons" are cited as the new No. 1 reason for the procedure. It turns out that in an era of austerity, having a Chinese-character tattoo that translates into "I have Kung Paochickenpants" is an act of unnecessary self-indulgence rather than glorious self-expression.

Austrian Economics Summit
Asia Regional Conference
July 20-23, 2012
DoubleTree by Hilton
Li Zhao Schoolland, a native of mainland China, informs us that there is a considerable free-market intellectual network in China. Hayek's The Constitution of Liberty has been a bestseller. Many other translated works on liberty are widely available.
The past two years, Li has organized highly successful student Austrian Economics Summer Seminars at Northeastern University in Shenyang, and will do a third one in July, 2012. ISIL has provided financial support to these student seminars.
Li is also organizing this free-market symposium in Shanghai at the Hilton DoubleTree Hotel, running from evening July 20th through the 22nd, with checkout on the 23rd, plus post-conference tour options.
ISIL is co-sponsoring the conference as an Asian regional event, and is encouraging international libertarians to attend and to explore this fascinating country.
The goal of the 2012 Shanghai conference is to expound on free-market ideas to a Chinese audience and to learn what free-market economists are doing in China. There will be three groups in attendance: 1) international attendees who are interested in both free markets and China; 2) Chinese academic and research economists who are interested in free-market ideas; and 3) university students who want to learn about free-market principles that are not taught in China.
This symposium is not affiliated with any government institutions in China. Therefore it is not registered with the Chinese government, but it is totally safe. Li just returned from a two-week planning trip to Shanghai where she met with many of the libertarian activists and academics. The Chinese label this summer symposium "a private intellectual dialogue, aiming to help China to grow."

专辑: 实拍上海世博园宝马受惊踢法拉利 实拍战马怒踹法拉利.kankanews.com by Tycho de Feyter (c) Loadet for a fair use only
A prancing horse from Italy got into a fight with a real horse in Shanghai, China. A Ferrari 458 and a Lamborghini Aventador were cruising along a busy street near the Shanghai World Expo Center when a local horse riding club crossed their path. The Ferrari driver hit the horn like Ferrari drivers do. One of the horses however didn't find that cool and attacked... See below for the movie! Kick at 5 seconds!
That is an angry horse indeed, bang was loud and hard! The owner of the Ferrari sure got angry and jumped out of his car to explain those horse riding hippies his view on the world, but he didn't call for police, likely because he didn't have a license plate on his horse-kicked car. Damage seems limited, horse hit Ferrari just above the wheel where bodywork is strong. Still, this 458 will need some repairs...
This incident in Shanghai is the third set-back for Ferrari in China in a very short time. In early May Ferrari had to apologize to 'the' Chinese people for damaging an old city wall, and just last week Ferrari announced an embarrassing recall. What's going on there in Italy, too busy with cappuccino makers and other irrelevant Ferrari-branded crap? It's about the cars, you stupido!

The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, also known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre and the June 4th Incident, or colloquially, Six-four (Chinese: 六四) by the Chinese public, and as the Political Turmoil between Spring and Summer of 1989 by the government of the People's Republic of China, were a series of demonstrations led by students, intellectuals and labour activists in the People's Republic of China between April 15, 1989 and June 4, 1989.

The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, also known as the June Fourth Incident in Chinese, were a series of popular demonstrations in and near Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China beginning on 15 April 1989. The protests ended with military suppression on 4 June. In the late 1970s, the Chinese leadership of Deng Xiaoping abandoned Maoist-style planned collectivist economics, and embraced market-based reforms. Due to the rapid pace of change, by the late 1980s, grievances over inflation, limited career prospects for students, and corruption of the party elite were growing rapidly. Communist governments were also losing legitimacy around the world, particularly in Eastern Europe. In April 1989, triggered by the death of deposed Communist Party General Secretary Hu Yaobang, a liberal reformer, mass gatherings and protests took place in and around Tiananmen Square. At its height, some half a million protesters assembled there. The largely student-run demonstrations called for continued economic reform, freedom of the press, accountability from officials, and political liberalization. Peaceful protests also occurred in other cities, such as Shanghai and Wuhan, while looting and rioting broke out in Xi'an and Changsha. The movement lasted for about seven weeks. The government initially attempted appeasing the protesters through concessions, but a student-led hunger strike galvanized support for the demonstrators around the country. Ultimately, Deng Xiaoping and other party elders resolved to use force to suppress the movement. Party authorities declared martial law on 20 May. Military convoys entered Beijing on the evening of 3–4 June. Under strict orders to clear the Square by dawn, the People's Liberation Army pushed through makeshift blockades set up by demonstrators in western Beijing on their way to Tiananmen Square. The PLA used live fire to clear their path of protesters. The exact number of civilian deaths is not known, and the majority of estimates range from several hundred to thousands. Internationally, the Chinese government was widely condemned for the use of force against the protesters. Western governments imposed economic sanctions and arms embargoes. Following 4 June, the government conducted widespread arrests of protesters and their supporters, cracked down on other protests around China, expelled foreign journalists and strictly controlled coverage of the events in the domestic press. Officials deemed sympathetic to the protests were demoted or purged. General Secretary Zhao Ziyang, who was considered too sympathetic to the movement, was ousted in a party leadership reshuffle. The aftermath of the protests strengthened the power of orthodox Communist hardliners, and delayed further market reforms until Deng Xiaoping's 1992 southern tour.

The next generation of Chinese workers is building machines to do factory work, instead of manning the assembly lines themselves.
The giant orange robotic arms that swiftly weld together car frames at the Great Wall Motors factory in Baoding might seem like the perfect answer to China's fast-rising labor costs - they don't ask for a raise, get injured or go on strike.
For Great Wall, a private sector Chinese car maker that employs 50,000 workers, the Swiss robots and other machinery that line its bright factory floor produce more than cost savings. The company hopes they will help it build cars good enough to compete with the global auto makers.

When Chinese-language interpreter Gaia (Francesca Cuttica) is offered a job that pays a fortune, she can't believe her luck. This time, however, is going to be a little different. After being escorted to a secret location in Rome, she is locked inside a pitch-black room where she is asked to interpret the harsh interrogation of the eponymous 'Wang'. Who is Wang and what does he want? Disturbed by the way the interrogation is conducted by the domineering Inspector Curti (Ennio Fantastichini, Loose Cannons), Gaia demands that the lights are switched on. Only upon seeing Wang, does Gaia realise why the job has come with so much mystery and subterfuge. And that she may be in way over her head...
