A role model for the younger (and the older) generation, nor only for China.

The Permanent Court of Arbitration which recently provided service to the Philippines against China about the South China Sea is not related to the United Nation, although The International Court of Justice, a UN organization, is a fellow renter in the same building, namely the Peace Palace in Hague.
Introduction to the PCA. Established in 1899 to facilitate arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution between states, the PCA has developed into a modern, multi-faceted arbitral institution that is now perfectly situated at the juncture between public and private international law to meet ...

+Shanghai Noon After you mention UN, it reflects to me that, that is because the US has no veto power under UNCLOS.

A very good article for better understanding of the current issues related to The South China Sea. The excellent comments are even more worth reading.

Does AB1726 specifically targeting Chinese?
The following letter is suggested by the Silicon Valley Chinese Association, they suggest leaders of your local Chinese community to use your own letterhead, signed by your representing member and email to svcainfo@gmail.com

The form letter suggested:

Honorable Governor Brown:

Despite the strong opposition from many Asian American organizations, California legislature passed AB1726 (Bonta) this month. AB1726, in essence, is a duplicate of AB176 (Bonta) that you vetoed last year. We applaud your previous decision and we urge that you take the same action this time again.

Regrettably, AB1726 is equally divisive, unfair, unscientific, and infeasible. We believe that your concern over its predecessor bill AB176 holds true in this current case: “Dividing people into ethnic or other subcategories may yield more information, but not necessarily greater wisdom about what actions should follow. To focus just on ethnic identity may not be enough.”

AB1726 is clearly divisive and unfair. It does not stipulate the collection of similar racial data from any group other than the Asian Americans Pacific Islanders. The bill, for example, does not require Cuban Americans, or Mexican Americans to report their ethnicities other than the generic “Hispanic.” Similarly, it does not require Jewish Americans, Arab Americans or Irish American to report ethnicities other than the generic “White.” It is indisputable that those sub-groups within the Hispanics and Whites are ethnically and culturally diverse. Singling out Asian Americans for stratification is not only unfair to Asian Americans, but also to all Americans.

AB1726 is unscientific. It confuses ethnicities with national origins. For instance, China as a country officially recognizes 56 ethnic groups among its citizens, including, for example, Korean, Hmong, Muslim and Mongolian. So identifying oneself as “Chinese” or “Taiwanese” doesn’t disclose that person’s true ethnic and possibly cultural background. Furthermore, the impact of the citizenship of one’s ancestry -- and in many cases multiple citizenships within the family tree -- is not necessarily a deciding factor of that person’s genetic makeup, or socioeconomic situation and educational status. Therefore, such stratification tactic encoded by AB1726 wouldn’t have been a useful factor in allocating educational or health resources of California.

In addition to all the problems above, this bill cannot be realistically implemented. Besides putting substantial costs on California taxpayers, the system is not intended to, nor is it able to, monitor and verify the accuracy and integrity of the self-identified data generated under this bill.

California does not need a bill that could only divide our communities. California does not need more heightened racial tensions. Please veto AB1726.

Best Regards,

Thins is about university's, its just one tacet of life. There's cost of living, economic opportunity, freedom and flexibility, economic upward mobility, tax rates, and sooooo much more. University? Thats not a key factor unless you ARE a college student. But if you are, fuck it! You can move anywhere and once you graduate find a state with low taxes, economic upward mobility, financial and property freedom, and so on.

What does California have that, say, Kansas or Georgia doesn't? I'll tell you, draconian laws, ridiculous taxes, a much higher cost of living, arbitrary laws in every manner of life, and its just filled with brainwashed shallow people.

The Tribunal rules: Quote "None of the fiercely disputed Spratly Islands, the UN body found, were “capable of generating extended maritime zones … [and] having found that none of the features claimed by China was capable of generating an exclusive economic zone, " Unquote, is obviously erroneous.
All judges should know the Taiping Island or the Itu Aba Island is a real Island. They were even invited by the Taiwan Government for a visit before the ruling, however they declined.
The reason such mistake has to be committed on purpose is: if the ruling mention any existence of real Islands in the South China Sea, the tribunal would deem to have no right to intervene, because sovereignty dispute would be involved.
To sum up, this is blatant insult to everyone on earth.

Tony Blair and George Bush should be indicted for war crimes.
An example should be set before the next war about South China Sea.
Why has Tony Blair, once so popular, become such a divisive and hated figure?

Chinese translate the meaning of foreign words, Japanese usually just duplicate the phonetics.
NEW YORK — If Michelin gave stars for unintentionally brilliant dish names, an eatery in Pingyao, China, might well be the world’s top restaurant. It has a large sign outside showing some of its tastiest dishes, with English translations: “In Bowl”, “You Flour Silk”, “Beef Cat’s Ear” and a noodle dish in broth known as “Sauce on My Grandma”. The Chinese and English languages are so different that you often see awkward translations like these. The...
