Information on China's Belt and Road investments in Pakistan and that nation's subsequent looming debt crisis.Many thought the internet would bring democracy to China. Instead it empowered rampant government oppression, and now the censors are turning their attention to the rest of the world.
Weaver is a network-security expert at the International Computer Science Institute, a research center in Berkeley, California. Together with other researchers, he helped pinpoint the targets of the attack: two GitHub-hosted projects connected to GreatFire.org, a China-based anti-censorship organization. The two projects enabled users in China to visit both GreatFire’s website and the Chinese-language version of the New York Times, both of which are normally inaccessible to users in China. GreatFire, dubbed a “foreign anti-Chinese organization” by the Cyberspace Administration of China, had long been a target of DDoS and hacking attacks, which is why it moved some of its services to GitHub, where they were nominally out of harm’s way.
Weaver and the Citizen Lab researchers found that not only was China blocking bits and bytes of data that were trying to make their way into China, but it was also channeling the flow of data out of China.
I liked the video but he doesnt really explain why poverty led to these widespread behaviors in China but not other places.
I guess he inferred that being lower than dirt poor makes you less empathetic than more fortunate people.I liked the video but he doesnt really explain why poverty led to these widespread behaviors in China but not other places.
Its fun watching him walk around making these scathing criticisms of Chinese culture as he walks by Chinese pedestrians who all just give him a second glance and walk on.
A Chinese court has sentenced a Canadian man to death for drug smuggling, amid growing tensions between the countries over Canada’s detention of a Huawei executive. Robert Lloyd Schellenberg had originally been given a 15-year sentence after being found guilty in November, but prosecutors have now said the sentence was too lenient. Dalian Intermediate People’s Court in the northeast province of Liaoning retried Mr Schellenberg and handed down the death penalty, the court said in a brief statement on its website.
The case is likely to inflame relations between Beijing and Ottawa, which have been tense since Canada’s arrest of a Chinese executive at the request of the United States in December. America wants Ms Meng, the daughter of Huawei’s founder, extradited to face fraud charges. She is accused of using a subsidiary company to circumvent sanctions against Iran. It has been suggested Beijing is attempting to use Mr Schellenberg’s case as a bargaining chip with Canada in an effort to increase the pressure on the Canadian authorities.
Beijing has expressed dismay at Ms Meng’s arrest and has warned Canada of “severe consequences” if she is not repatriated. China has also detained two other Canadians who are reportedly suspected of “national security crimes”.
This is white person thinking.I guess he inferred that being lower than dirt poor makes you less empathetic than more fortunate people.
This isn't that uncommon apparently.All of the crawling workers were female and they work for a company which sells beauty products, reported btime.com. The group were led by a male supervisor, who was walking while holding a large flag that bore the name of the firm. Two other workers were seen walking alongside the group while filming the extreme punishment. Police soon arrived at the scene after being informed of the group's behaviour, they demanded the leader of the team stop the punishment before issuing him a verbal warning.
It is reported that the company was ordered to halt business and carry out self-reflection by the local authorities. According to China's employment contract law, employers are not allowed to humiliate and give corporal punishment to workers. Furthermore, the employer shall be liable for compensation if any harm is done to the worker. Nevertheless, many Chinese companies have been known for carrying out public humiliation rituals as punishment, from crawling on the streets to worm-eating.
Last month, workers at a Chinese hair salon were forced to slap themselves in the face 100 times, eat raw chillies and run 10km because their work performance hadn't reached their boss's expectation. In November, employees at a home improvement firm in Zunyi, Guizhou province, were whipped with belts, forced to drink urine and eat insects after failing to reach their targets.
id let her slap me, as long as she was aware i'm smacking that ass afterward.Staff at a Chinese company are forced to CRAWL on the street after 'failing to hit their annual targets'
This isn't that uncommon apparently.
ADV China explains that cold water is bad for your 'chi' or something. It saps you of vitality, so you have to be sure to drink only warm water to maintain your magical energies. I think it's just a spook story invented to compensate for the fact that they hadn't invented refrigeration yet like their racially superior counterparts in the Western world.ya'll tell me what this warm water thing is?
also the dishwasher
i'll admit i don't use my dishwasher either, but i don't use it to store dishes.The dishwasher thing is legit. I've never met an asian that uses their dishwasher - they all use it for storage like a little closet. It's amazing.
