Shanghai News Wrapup

Thursday, November 24th, 2005

Although I am still coughing my lungs out I thought I stay in touch with reality and read the online version of the Shanghai Daily to catch up with the latest news. I have missed a lot, I can tell you. Here are the headlines.

City boasts abundant water supply
While fresh, clean water is loosing […]

Bird Flu | My First Face Mask | China

Wednesday, October 26th, 2005

Is it panic slowly creeping in? I don’t know but slowly I am getting the feeling that Bird Flu might become a bigger problem than I at first envisioned.
Sure, the media don’t really help when now it’s daily in the headlines. It also isn’t very comforting to live in a country where bird […]

China Opens Up | Typhoon Khanun

Monday, September 12th, 2005

It’s one of those ordinary days. Typhoon Khanun (Jackfruit in Thai) passed by here in Shanghai last night but seems to be gone as construction workers outside are working again. It’s not the first as Matsa also paid a visit before.
Maybe all this wind and rain has cleared some minds.

China will no longer […]

Shanghai News | The Best Tidbits of the Day

Friday, September 9th, 2005

Traffic is hot here. New subway lines are being build while cars are doing their best to clog up every road there is. I remember being on my way to the airport a few weeks ago and actually being stopped from entering the ring road. Road closed, too many cars was the message.
It will […]

A Week Full of Bashing

Thursday, June 16th, 2005

The Chinese blogosphere has been tortured lately with some heated debates about China bashing, Japan bashing, foreigner bashing and whatever lays ready to bash. It all started so innocent.
A remark by the author of the Horse’s Mouth about the poor usage of the English language in the People’s Daily upset the […]

Two Powers Look into Each Other’s Eyes

Wednesday, May 11th, 2005

I was reading yesterday’s Hong Kong Standard when I came across this picture. The caption read “Presidents George W. Bush and Hu Jintao chat during a wreath laying ceremony at the Unknown Soldier Tomb outside the Kremlin wall in Moscow”.

It’s an intriguing photo. Two superpowers measuring eachother face to face it seems. The chatting […]

Picture by Chris Myrick
Don’t worry, I won’t try to explain what has been happening over the last couple of weeks regarding the frictions between China and Japan. Others are better at that. Besides, I missed the whole demonstration myself. We asked a taxi driver to take us there and he said it was already […]

Anti means Pro

Wednesday, March 16th, 2005

In the back I hear my favorite news channel in China, CCTV International also known as CCTV 9.
They have been going on about the anti-secession law now for about 15 minutes. Three different well-known scholars have explained that the law is peaceful. Overseas Chinese organizations have been quoted as standing firm behind […]

Lenovo Deal Might Pose A Threat to US Security

Tuesday, January 25th, 2005

According to Bloomberg
“IBM’s proposed $1.25 billion sale of its personal computer business to
Lenovo Group of China may be held up by U.S. regulators over national
security concerns”. When big takeovers are involved a whole chain of
U.S. regulatory approvals is need before the deal can be effectuated.
Currently the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United […]

Zhao Ziyang has passed away

Monday, January 17th, 2005

This morning I heard on the Dutch news (internet radio) that the former
President of China, Zhao Ziyang, died. In ‘89 he was replaced by Jiang Zemin and put under house
arrest because of his soft stance on the student protests.
Chinaherald has
collected a good set of links about his death. It will be interesting
to see […]
