Not exactly surprising given the state of food, water, and hospitals here. Full Comment>>

Around China : SwedKiwi1 commented on news World Anti-Doping Agency Suspends Beijing Lab’s Accreditation

apparently they submitted some false test results to WADA. Would be nice to know this from the article though, rather than have to find it on a different site (http://www.bbc.com/sport/36109146). Full Comment>>

Around China : SwedKiwi1 commented on news Over 13 million Abortions Performed in China Every Year

Just reading through the above statistics, it seems more than a little unreliable. 13% of girls admitted to getting pregnant but 48% of boys. Seems the truth might lie in between somewhere. Either way unwanted pregnancies is becoming a bigger problem by the year in China. So I have to agree with kasuka91 that safe ... Full Comment>>

I wouldn't call the party particularly meritocratic. Nationalism is more like it - what about the China Socialist (nationalist) party? Full Comment>>

No big surprises there. Food standards in China just keep dropping lower on an almost daily basis. But how could food from WWII even be sold in the first place?! Full Comment>>

Around China : SwedKiwi1 commented on news Jackie Chan’s Troubled Anti-Drug Ambassadorship

"Chan said that he has no idea why he didn’t resign his status (as an anti-drug ambassador". This would probably be because he is a hypocrite like most other Chinese ambassadors. Full Comment>>

Around China : SwedKiwi1 commented on news Nanjing Law Enforcement Personnel Caught Fishing in Flooded Street

"It was speculated that ... the two workers had already finished their official duties by the time they decided to go fishing in that spot". Seems pretty unlikely that they had finished their jobs properly if they were able to go fishing there. Full Comment>>

Around China : SwedKiwi1 commented on news Hong Kong Strengthens Security as Reform Vote Nears

The woman campaigning for genuine universal (Western) suffrage did a fantastic job and it should definitely be watched. A classic speech that pretty much explains the Hong Kong perspective on this false "reform". Full Comment>>

Around China : SwedKiwi1 commented on news Quick Solve: Foreigners Robbed, Beijing Police Solve the Case in an Hour

The whole story is very unsurprising really. The police found the robber because they most likely already knew who he was and could see the security tape to back this up. Not the greatest accomplishment but good for the guys to get their stuff back anyway. Full Comment>>

Around China : SwedKiwi1 commented on news Drivers in Beijing Lamborghini, Ferrari Drag Racing Crash Fined, Jailed

The fines are really insignificant for these little emperors. 8-10k plus some jail time that they probably won't end up serving anyway isn't much of a punishment for extremely dangerous drag racing close to the centre of Beijing. Full Comment>>

I am sure there are plenty of "real" universities offering degrees for the right price as well. So it is unclear what difference fake universities make in the longer run. Full Comment>>

Around China : SwedKiwi1 commented on news Lion Kills Breeder in Shandong, Is Shot by Police

I am seriously wondering about the background of this story. Lions don't normally attack their breeders if they are treated well (I think). Also why did it take armed police and 6 or 7 shots to kill one lion? Full Comment>>

Articles : SwedKiwi1 commented on news No Zuo No Die: It's OK to Be A Little Crazy

I liked one of the variations of the saying above - "No zuo no die, why you try, you try you die, don’t ask why", says a lot about Chinese culture. It manages to include a Chinglish saying, not trying, not asking and probably a bit of face in one short sentence. Full Comment>>

It seems China is reverting back to an Imperial system of sorts, with a full personality cult included. Does not bode well for the future to have so few people that are capable of independent thought. Full Comment>>

"promote the idea of “internationalization,” so that customers will believe that remote areas are actually in fact, up and coming" - a nice little scam with Chinese characteristics that. Why don't they just offer a few free (or cheap) apartments for foreigners instead? Full Comment>>
