Disability of a different character

Different strokes for different folks FOR a foreigner, learning how to read in Chinese sometimes feels like spot-the-difference: one of those children’s puzzles where you have to find tiny dissimilarities in two nearly identical pictures.

How the Chinese cross the road

CROSSING the road in a Chinese city sometimes feels a bit like stepping out in front of a firing range.

Poles apart

NOWHERE in the world, it seems, are demonstrators so hard to count as in Hong Kong. This was true even under British rule. Under Chinese sovereignty since 1997, Hong Kong’s  arithmetic has got even harder . When untold thousands took to the streets ... [Published Analects - The Economist - Aug 18 2014]

Shaming an internet celebrity

GUO MEIMEI had often featured in Chinese media, but her appearance on China Central Television (CCTV) on August 4th was different.

Drawing a line

A FISHING barge strewn with what look like animal corpses occupies the atrium of Shanghai’s Power Station of Art (PSA).

"Leftover" and proud

IT ISN'T easy being young and female in China. The pressure to marry begins from your early to mid-twenties, often with your own mother ringing you on a daily basis to encourage you to settle.

Political intrigue translates well IN A scene at the start of the second season of   " House of Cards ", a TV political drama series, the American president and advisors gather for a tense meeting in the Oval Office. China and America are soon to enter into a joint venture on a rare earth refinery in Fujian province. The debate is over the threat posed by Chinese cyber attacks. With continued breaches of cyber security, one character suggests, China will no longer need bother with such ventures and instead simply obtain new technology through corporate espionage. This unusually authentic treatment of issues at the core of Sino-American relations has earned “House of Cards” cachet among China-watchers. (Among some it has inspired forensic scrutiny , but not always to the show’s credit.) Among Chinese nationals,... Continue reading "
...In a tweet Zhou Tiedong, the president of China Film Promotion International, a government body, pronounced the coming years to be "the China decade”. In terms of box-office performance that is not far-fetched. China is now the world’s second largest market, with box-office takings in 2013 growing 28% year-on-year to $3.6 billion. Some predict that, by 2020, China will have taken over America’s market. But the appeal of Chinese films abroad has been limited. Last year overseas admissions to Chinese-made films declined for the second successive year. Of some 640 films produced, 45 were licensed for exhibition abroad, earning a... Continue reading "
