Around China : Corflamum commented on news 8000 Heilongjiang Teachers Strike

That's what Marx said. Mao said, "Swollen in head, weak in legs, sharp in tongue but empty in belly," in commenting on how lazy peasants are. Full Comment>>

Articles : Corflamum commented on news 5 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in China You Must Visit

I cannot stress this enough, although I find Luoyang to be a nice weekend getaway (highly recommend the museum, White Horse Temple, and the Guanlin Miao), the Longmen Caves are a waste of time and money. The ticket for the Longmen Caves is very expensive, and the picture above is the picture of the only statues to ... Full Comment>>

Around China : Corflamum commented on news Corn: The Secret of the Xinjiang Village with the Worlds’ Oldest People

That's true. The indigenous people of Mexico and the American Southwest treated their corn with limestone, to allow the body to absorb the nutrients, a practice which is widespread today in the United States and Mexico. But if a person's diet consisted of 80% corn without treating the corn with calcium hydroxide, ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Corflamum commented on news Qiu Zhenhai: China Desperately Needs More Cutting-Edge Talent

State-Owned Enterprises own more than 65% of the nation's assets, yet account for less than 10% of the annual profits. In a system that has no rewards for hard work or even just plain adequate, why would anyone with half a brain even try? Full Comment>>

This is typical of Chinese culture. The stepfather feels he is not of my genes, he is not my son, therefore not my problem. Most street kids are products of this situation. Full Comment>>

Articles : Corflamum commented on news Expert Says 80% of Wealthy Chinese Will Fall Back Into Poverty in the Next Three Years

His points are extremely valid. Wealth creation in a developed economy is based on innovation and entrepreneurship, not mercantilism, or buying low and selling high, and precious few Chinese billionaires made their wealth that way (the only one coming to mind is Jack Ma), that's why he's predicting so many will lose ...

Articles : Corflamum commented on news China’s “Xinghun” Phenomenon: Sham Marriages to Keep up Appearances

I never understood why the Chinese government does not embrace gay marriages. In a country where the government dictates popular opinion, it would be easy to make people accept it. The benefits being 2-5% of the population would stop reproducing, with willing happiness, and the inevitable repeal of the wildly ... Full Comment>>

The U.S. military, the most advanced and well funded fighting force in the world has been fighting al-Qaeda for ten years, and yet al-Qaeda and its affiliates are stronger than they have ever been. It's not simply a matter of eradicating extremists. You kill one, you make him a martyr. You kill ten, you make a ... Full Comment>>

You hit it right on the head. Big Bang Theory is not dangerous because it is overtly political, it is dangerous because it promotes a fulfilling middle-class life with dignity. Making a living wage. Not being afraid of your boss. Having rights. Having hobbies. Going out on the weekend. Living in a nice apartment ... Full Comment>>

According to a recent poll from the Washington Post, 59% of Americans are in favor of marriage equality, and a little over 50% say the Constitution guarantees the right to gay marriage. About six in 10 Catholics, non-evangelical Protestants and eight in 10 with no religious affiliation support it. Three-quarters of ... Full Comment>>

In this particular case I think you are right.

You forgot one factor--the Chinese will do anything for money. ANYTHING. And if they feel the political winds shifting or see an opportunity for a bigger slice of the pie, they will quite literally throw anyone and everyone under the bus. They are loyal only to their immediate friends and family, everyone else can ... Full Comment>>

A person either works for themselves by having highly sought after skills for leverage, they are their own boss, or they slave away for another pence in someone else's pocket. Unfortunately in China (and increasingly the USA too), there are very few skills that give you real leverage. It's kind of pathetic when my ... Full Comment>>

Well put. Clearly the guy who wrote it does not live here. China can pour all the money it wants into making movies, but that doesn't mean they will make money or even be good. I recall The Last Airbender, The Lone Ranger, John Carter, Speed Racer, The 13th Warrior, and man does the list go on, but all of those ... Full Comment>>

What I can't get over is that you lose your right to work for five years if you have a second child... isn't that self defeating? The whole point of the One-Child Policy is that you prevent them from being a burden to society, but five years of unemployment would pretty much guarantee that the family would become ...

6. Just because you like the way your mom cooks doesn't mean anyone else will. I have known plenty of Westerners in China (American and European) who can botch up steaks and pasta just as badly as a Chinese person, if not worse. Opening a shitty bistro in Shanghai is no better than opening a shitty bistro in Paris. Full Comment>>

Articles : Corflamum commented on news China’s International Image and Influence: What Foreigners “Really” Think

The Chinese have an idiom that is something like, foreign invasion and internal revolt; it means the end of a dynasty. To think of China in long periods of peace punctuated by conflict and disaster is totally incorrect. Throughout history, China has only had one extended period of peace: The Tang Dynasty. Literally ... Full Comment>>

Start asking your Chinese friends. It's literally easier to just go by a different name the rest of your life than change the ID card. My friend's father works in the provincial government, and his guanxi is still not enough to get an ID with the correct birthday. Full Comment>>
