TEDTalk: Meet 2 Chinese factory workers, Lu Qingmin and Wu Chunming

-Author of "Factory Girls " 


“We, the beneficiaries of globalization seem to exploit these victims with every purchase we make and the injustice feels embedded in the products themselves,” Chang says. “This simple narrative equating Western demand and Chinese suffering is appealing … but it’s also inaccurate and disrespectful. We must be peculiarly self-obsessed to imagine that we have the power to drive tens of millions of people on the other side of the world to migrate and suffer in such terrible ways … By focusing so much on ourselves and our gadgets, we have rendered the individuals on the other ends into invisibility, as tiny and interchangeable as the parts of a mobile phone.”



Factory Girls: From Village to City in a Changing China

China has 130 million migrant workers—the largest migration in human history. In Factory Girls, Leslie T. Chang, a former correspondent for the Wall Street Journal in Beijing, tells the story of these workers primarily through the lives of two young women, whom she follows over the course of three years as they attempt to rise from the assembly lines of Dongguan, an industrial city in China’s Pearl River Delta.

LA TIMES: "China Rising"

-Isn't the LA Times a newspaper? What's with videos? 

China's "one-child" policy has slowed population growth and brought prosperity to the nation of 1.3 billion, but it hasn't averted massive damage to the environment. The situation there shows how rising consumption and even modest rates of population growth magnify each other's impact on the planet, an issue of growing concern to scientists.

Terrorism in China: Changing Kashgar, Uyghur East Turkistan Islamic Movement and Xinjiang: A Different China

-Tumultuous place on Earth.

Xinjiang Series: A Different China

The northwestern province of Xinjiang in China is full of colours and character. The culture of the Uyghur and other minority ethnic groups, influenced by Central Asia and the Middle East, makes Xinjiang a truly special place.

Changing Kashgar - China



Kashgar is located in Western China, and has been at a crossroad of civilizations for centuries. Once a thriving town along the Silk Road, it is changing quickly today, now that the Chinese government has initiated several plans to incorporate the area into the so called 'develop the West' program. The original population of Xinjiang, the Uyghur people, are under continuous pressure from growing Chinese influence, and see their traditional Muslim society being eroded rapidly.

Old quarters are being destroyed, and make way for new, but hastily built apartment blocks. Uyghurs are under increasing scrutiny by the local and central government, and also face unfair competition on the job market from the many Han Chinese that now live in cities like Kashgar.

At the same time, many Uyghurs manage to hold on to their traditional lifestyles, and some parts of town look the same as they did 100 years ago.

I traveled to Kashgar in 2005, and got the chance to visit the town again in 2010, this time bringing a video camera. This clip gives an insight of the structural visible changes that are happening to the city, but it also shows what daily life in Kashgar is like today.

This video contains only a part of the entire story, and I encourage you to read up on Kashgar's history and current situation.

For this video I used traditional Uyghur music and stock free audio to support the images.

2 Realistic Videos on Teaching English in China, both with over 30,000 Views

-Love the "Chicken Song" on the second one! 
See what a typical day is like for an English teacher in Shanghai, China. http://youtu.be/oxdGYlK9leY
i taught children in jiashan, china for 3 weeks for an english language camp to help introduce them to the english language. the students i were responsible for were 1st and 2nd graders, so it made it quite the challenge, but i think i got through to them in the end.

this vlog is the first ive ever created, so any comments good or bad would be appreciated.

EDIT - January 2010:
first and foremost. thank you. 18,000 views later, i never would foresee this video being my most watched. i have 20+ other videos on youtube, but the view count on this one trumps them all.

i get a lot of criticism for this video, both good and bad. below is a reply i posted to someones comment and it kind of gives an update to what im up to now.

---------------------------------------------------------

this video was my first video ever made. it was made for entertainment purposes. it was made to mainly show my closest family and friends what i was up to at the time since it was my first time in a foreign country.

16,000+ views later, i never realized that this video would be taken so seriously and perceive me as being a "snobbish," and "conceited" person who "should feel bad for wasting the time" of young children who should be actually learning something.

however, those who know me most would never use those words to describe me and would think the exact opposite of me. those who have viewed the other 21 videos that ive posted would know that as well.

i know that i may have a sarcastic point of view, but at the time, iwas 23 years old with no future set.

but since then, ive been an english teacher in japan and the students have made me realize how important i am to their lives. there's been no greater feeling in the world and the im glad to have the kind of impact that ive had on them.

i get a lot of comments about this video saying that i should be teaching, and that im wasting their time, etc etc etc...

..but this is my experience. this are my eyes thats viewing whats going on. i know i will always get criticism for this video. but on the last day i was there at that school, EVERY student cried. i cried. everyone cried. because the experience we shared together could never be recreated. i loved teaching the students, and they loved having me as a teacher. i didnt know how to teach at the time, but i must have been doing something right for me to have the kind of respect they had for me.

I DIDNT GET PAID FOR THIS. i did it because i wanted to do something important for other people. youre right, i didnt know what i was doing. but somewhere there, there was a need for me and i tried my share the culture that i have. i did more than the "chicken song" and "head shoulder knees and toes," but it showed how cute the students are and thats why i didnt show any actual teaching in the video. that wasnt the purpose of me making it.

teaching here was one of the best experiences ive ever had. it was eye-opening and made me realize how hard it can be in other places. i taught because the students gave me the motivation to. i couldnt be more thankful.

thats all i have to say about this video. i may look like a bad teacher. but only i know what went on and nothing can change how i feel about this experience. theres another 400+ hours thats missing from this video.

fill it with your own experience and post it. its all i ask.
