Assignment: China - China Watching (Chinese Subtitles)

-WOW! 

China Watching 这个词被外界人士用来形容记者,外交官和其他不在中国但想探究中国当时正在发生什么, 对于美国和世界意味着什么的人们的努力. 1949年10月1日,毛泽东和中国共产党上台后,绝大部分的美国记者和其他美国新闻­机构工作人员纷纷离开了中国. 美国当时并没有意识到中国新政府与其关闭的外交渠道.1950年秋天, 两国的士兵在朝鲜战场上面对面. 通常,中国不欢迎来自和自己没有建立外交关系国家的记者.另外,美国国务院规定,仅凭­美国护照不能进入中国.这些限制在60年代放宽了些, 但是之后的二十年,极少数美国新闻机构的记者能在中国进行报道. 那些进入中国, 凭借非美国国籍, 或受到特殊邀请的人们被密切监控. 大多数报道中国的美国人是从香港的"监听站"得到消息.

Jar of fresh mountain air from France sells for £500 in China

Fresh Air Sells for $860 a Jar in China | TIME.com:
Beijing artist Liang Kegang auctioned off a jar of fresh French air as a form of protest against Chinese air pollution
"Air should be the most valueless commodity, free to breathe for any vagrant or beggar," Liang said in an interview. "This is my way to question China's foul air and express my dissatisfaction."
Liang's work is part of a gust of recent artistic protest — and entrepreneurial gimmickry — reflecting widespread dissatisfaction over air quality in China
In February, 20 artists wearing dust masks lay on the ground and played dead in front of an altar at the Temple of Heaven park in a performance art protest in Beijing.

Assignment: China - The Chinese Civil War (Chinese Subtitles)

-Fascinating... 

The Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang or KMT) and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) had originally cooperated in seeking to wrest control of China from landlords and foreign forces. In April 1927, they split and began a decades-long civil war, interrupted only in part by Japan's invasion. With Japan's surrender and the failure of the American mediation effort, the two sides resumed their struggle in late 1945. This segment of Assignment: China examines efforts by journalists to report on this final four years of the war and its impact on Chinese society. It features archival photos and interviews as well as interviews with some of those who brought news of this battle for the world's largest country to Americans via newspapers and magazines, news reels, and radio.

How Chinese and Americans See Each Other-Through Tinted Lenses? Conference: Ernest Wilson - Welcome

-This should be good.

Through Tinted Lenses? How Chinese and Americans See Each Other

What do Americans and Chinese "know" about each other and how do they know it? What images do they have of each other's society and state? Where do these images come from? Why do some endure and others change? How do images vary with age and other factors? How do these perceptions affect the decisions and actions of governments, businesses, civic groups, and individuals?

On November 1-2, 2013, leading academics will gather with pollsters, journalists, diplomats, and entertainment industry practitioners to explore these questions and questions and others at a conference hosted by the USC U.S.-China Institute.

Polls suggest that a slight majority of Americans believe that the values of Chinese and Americans are so different that cooperation to address international problems is impossible. Most Chinese feel the U.S. is working to constrain China's continued rise. Americans and Chinese have increasingly negative impressions of each other's countries. Yet, we are visiting each other's countries more than ever before, becoming ever more intertwined, and are working cooperatively in many different ways to address pressing social, economic, and environmental issues. At the conference we'll examine how these exchanges affect perceptions along with the even more powerful role played by new and old media, popular entertainment, and political discourse.

Ernest Wilson holds the Walter Annenberg Chair in Communication and heads the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. He has been an pioneering scholar, academic leader, public servant, and White House staffer.

Take 64,000 Chopsticks, an Amazing Artist and the Famous Jackie Chan: the Result is the Stuff of Legend!

-This girl is truly amazing.

Jackie Chan portrait made of 64,000 CHOPSTICKS! :) Such an honour working with him on this in Beijing!!!

Jackie turns 60 this year and being an artist who paints without a paintbrush, I spent a looong time thinking about what material to use for his portrait! He is an actor, a kungfu master, an environmentalist and a world-reknowned face! I finally decided on chopsticks - a symbol of the Chinese culture, Jackie has used chopsticks during his kungfu scenes in a few movies like the Fearless Hyena and Karate Kid. I used disposable bamboo chopsticks to show that reused materials can be made into something else, that can be meaningful and beautiful. I spent a month collecting these chopsticks from cafes, stalls and factories in Zhejiang and Beijing, then tying each of them up. So honoured to present it at his concert on 6/4/14. Happy 60th birthday, Jackie!

John Shakespeare's 1st Trip back to China in 75 Years. Son Nicholas Documents his trip and tears: Childhood in China

-He lived a long productive life.


A CHILDHOOD IN CHINA from IntelligentLife on Vimeo.

From: VIDEO: A CHILDHOOD IN CHINA | More Intelligent Life:
In the current issue of Intelligent Life, Nicholas Shakespeare writes about visiting China with his father John, who lived in Peking as a boy in the 1930s. It was John's first trip back in 75 years—during which time the small walled city of Peking has become the vast sprawl of Beijing.
In mid-February Colin Baker, from The Economist's multimedia department, and I took a train down to Wiltshire to make a short video with John, who is now 83. It's the first in a series of videos we'll be making for our apps and website. Samantha Weinberg, our assistant editor, met us off the train in Salisbury, and the three of us drove to John's house in the countryside, stopping to ask directions at a little farmhouse where you could buy milk at the front door. Sitting in his sunny living room, surrounded by memorabilia from his childhood in China, John looked back on picnics at the Summer Palace and his search for the school he left behind in 1937.

3 Year Old From Shandong Province Sings and Dances into Hearts Around the World on " 出彩中国人 AMAZING CHINESE!"

-Pretty cute and brave. 

Visit DramaFever News for more cute, funny and crazy news from Asia! http://www.dramafever.com/news
http://youtu.be/MdcuaeYV9oM

Adorable 3 year old is very happy to dance!


Little Zhang Junhao, from China's Shandong province for those of you to whom that may mean something, comes out and does some pretty confident interacting with the three panelists. There's a large audience, as big as an audience from 'Britain's Got Talent' or any of the others in the Got Talent franchise, but Zhang is undaunted by the attention and frequent applause.
He cranks up his music-box and patches of songs keep coming out and he keeps providing specific dances for each. The clip shows those of us in the West that their talent show isn't markedly different, or really any different, than our talent shows and that their kids are also the same as ours: cute and talented.
