VOA’s Michael Lipin presents the debut edition of his podcast, China 360, which looks at how China is influencing the world, and how China is influenced by the world, including America. In this week’s segment, Michael finds out why presumptive U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has developed a fan base among many Chinese social media users, despite his repeated sharp criticisms of Beijing in his election campaign rhetoric. Chinese media researcher Kecheng Fang, a PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania, talks to Michael about the reasons behind Trump’s appeal in China; while Michael highlights some alternate theories culled from Facebook and Twitter users. Join the conversation about this phenomenon on Michael’s Facebook profile: www.facebook.com/Michael.Lipin

What's behind the Japanese prime minister's outreach to Russia, a country that Japan never signed a peace treaty with? I looked into that in this story, with the help of the Asia Society and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace:
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is trying hard to improve relations with Russia, a neighbor with whom Tokyo has yet to sign a peace treaty after the end of World War II. Abe has a variety o...

I've been training with LaTasha Barnes several times a month for more than a year now, and I can't overstate how positive an experience it has been. LaTasha has brought her friendly, energetic and encouraging attitude to every training session that I've had with her, be it at my apartment or at her gym. And no matter how tough the physical challenges that she gives me, I have so much fun doing them that I find myself laughing along with LaTasha from start to finish. In practical terms, the training has significantly boosted my core strength in the past year, enabling me to enjoy one of my favorite hobbies - dance - more often and with less pain and risk of injury. LaTasha's attention to my diet has led me to make positive lifestyle changes in terms of what I eat - for example, switching from milk to almond milk, eating fewer sandwiches and more salads, and drinking more water on a daily basis. And another way that I know she has made an impact is that my mother has remarked several times about my improved posture - and my mom doesn't lie! I highly recommend LaTasha to anyone who wants to improve his or her physical strength and diet, and have a fun time doing it. - Michael Lipin
