Hong Kong None the Wiser after Mention by Beijing Leaders - We declare the weekend open with much hand-wringing and anguish over the possible precise meaning of this year’s Hong Kong-related ceremonial chanting at the ‘two meetings’ in Beijing. Last year, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang’s recitations did not include the catchphrases ‘Hong Kong people running/administering Hong Kong’ or ‘high degree of autonomy’, but this year they did. Or the other way round. Does this mean ... http://ow.ly/2VxXBE

From Wiki: Private Teruo Nakamura (中村 輝夫 Nakamura Teruo?, October 8, 1919 − June 15, 1979) was a Taiwan-born soldier of the Imperial Japanese Army from the indigenous Amis tribe, who fought for Japan in World War II and did not surrender until 1974.

Dealing with Jet Lag - Just back to Shenzhen from the US and the body rebels. Jet lag forcefully reminds us that the body and its functions are not under “my” control because if so, this nauseous compulsion to sleep would not creep over “me”. Inquiring minds want to know; who laid down? We speak of culture shock, but in practice the jolt of awareness that becomes cross cultural knowledge may be something as banal as the taste of water or the brush of straw brooms as pro... http://ow.ly/2VulaP

The duplicate sphinx is being built as part of the “World Culture Heritage Exhibit” at the Chuhou International Great Wall Tourism Innova... http://ow.ly/2VucNG
