China Is Trying to Rewrite The Present
 
Das #Coronavirus-Update mit Christian #Drosten #NDR
#Sars-CoV-2, das neue #Coronavirus, hat sich zuerst in #China ausgebreitet und ist nun Tag für Tag in den Schlagzeilen. Doch wie können wir so viele Menschen wie möglich so fundiert wie möglich informieren - ohne dabei unnötige Panik zu verbreiten? NDR Info Wissenschaftsredakteurin Korinna Hennig spricht jeden Tag mit einem der führenden Virus-Forscher Deutschlands: Christian Drosten, dem Leiter der Virologie in der Berliner #Charité.

Welche Spur verfolgt die Forschung aktuell? Welche neuen Erkenntnisse gibt es zu Ansteckung und Krankheitsverlauf? Ist die Aufregung um das neue Virus überhaupt angemessen? Und: Wie ergeht es den Forschern persönlich in diesen Tagen?

Shenzhen Could Be The First City In China To Ban Eating Dogs And Cats


The Covid-19 outbreak may have prompted the ban. It is thought that wildlife sold at a Wuhan market in Hubei province earlier in December may have been the focal point of the outbreak.

The possible ban on eating dog and cat meat suggested by the Shenzhen government does not have to do with disease though, it is the social relationships that occur between humans and their pets. They have called it the “consensus of all human civilization.”

“Shenzhen might just be able to do it, as it is a progressive city in many ways,” said a professor at Griffith University in Australia.

PRESIDENT XI JINPING NEW YEAR ADDRESS 2020.






Beijing, December 31 / Xinhua / - Chinese President Xi Jinping tonight, on the eve of the onset of 2020, made a New Year’s address in Beijing, in which he promised in the coming key year to achieve the first goal of “Two Centennial Anniversaries” - building well-off society in every way.

He also pledged to help all struggling villagers escape poverty and to eradicate poverty in all poor counties.

"2020 is critical to achieving victory in the fight against poverty," said Xi Jinping. "The cry has already been cast. We must work together and work hard to ensure victory in the fight against poverty," he stressed.

Xi Jinping expressed his best wishes to Xiangang and Xiangang compatriots.

"In the past few months, everyone has been preoccupied with the situation in Xiangang," said Xi Jinping.

"How can there be a native land where people live calmly and happily work without a harmonious and stable environment!" - He noted, adding that "We sincerely wish all the best to the Hong Kong and the Hong Kong compatriots."

According to him, the prosperity and stability of Xiangang is the desire of compatriots in Xiangang, as well as the aspirations of the people of the motherland.

Noting that history is going through both peaceful and eventful times, Xi Jinping said that "we are not afraid of either winds, rains, or any difficulties."

He noted that China will steadily follow the path of peaceful development, protect world peace and promote overall development.

"We are ready to join forces with the peoples of the whole world to actively build the Belt and the Way, to contribute to the formation of a community of a unified fate for humanity, and to work tirelessly to create an even more beautiful future for humanity," added Xi Jinping.

“In 2019, we worked hard, when we brought closer achievements through concrete measures,” said Xi Jinping in his speech, summing up the progress made in 2019.

At the end of 2019, China’s GDP is expected to approach 100 trillion yuan / about 14.37 trillion US dollars /, while per capita GDP will reach 10 thousand US dollars, the PRC chairman noted.

Substantial progress has been made in the prevention and mitigation of key risks, the implementation of targeted poverty alleviation, and the prevention and control of pollution.

At the end of 2019, about 340 poor districts across China will leave the category of “poor” and more than 10 million people will get rid of poverty, Xi Jinping said.

He outlined achievements in science and technology. The Chang'e-4 probe made the first soft landing in the history of mankind on the far side of the moon; The launch of the Changzheng-5 Y3 launch vehicle was successful. Chinese research icebreaker Xuelong-2 / Snow Dragon-2 set off on its first trip to the South Pole.

A number of new pilot free trade zones have been established; the Shanghai experimental free trade zone was expanded; A trading platform for the field of scientific and technological innovation was successfully launched; over the course of the year, taxes and fees of more than 2 trillion yuan were reduced.

Xi Jinping noted solid progress in reforming the national defense system and the armed forces. The country held a grand military parade on the occasion of the founding of the PRC. The first Chinese-made aircraft carrier Shandong was handed over to the Navy of the People's Liberation Army of China.

"The most memorable moment of the past year was the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China," said Xi Jinping, adding that the people felt a powerful surge of patriotism.

He also noted a number of events that were organized on the territory of China during the year, including the High-level Forum on International Cooperation within the Belt and Path, the International Horticultural Exhibition EXPO-2019 in Beijing, as well as the second China International Import Expo in Shanghai .

During the year, Xi Jinping held meetings with leaders of many countries of the world, shared with them the projects of China, which contributed to the strengthening of friendship and mutual understanding.

China has established diplomatic relations with a number of countries, and now their number has reached 180, Xi Jinping said.

For two hours, a large chunk of European mobile traffic was rerouted through China | ZDNet



For more than two hours on Thursday, June 6, a large chunk of European mobile traffic was rerouted through the infrastructure of China Telecom, China's third-largest telco and internet service provider (ISP).

The incident occurred because of a BGP route leak at Swiss data center colocation company Safe Host, which accidentally leaked over 70,000 routes from its internal routing table to the Chinese ISP.

The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), which is used to reroute traffic at the ISP level, has been known to be problematic to work with, and BGP leaks happen all the time.

However, there are safeguards and safety procedures that providers usually set up to prevent BGP route leaks from influencing each other's networks.

But instead of ignoring the BGP leak, China Telecom re-announced Safe Host's routes as its own, and by doing so, interposed itself as one of the shortest ways to reach Safe Host's network and other nearby European telcos and ISPs.

Don't like to share from this rag, but it is too funny to miss!
People in China are cheering for Beijing in a trade war against Washington by cleaning their bathrooms with 'Donald Trump' toilet brushes.

Consumers have reportedly flocked to buy toilet cleaning tools that look like the U.S. President as a way to support their government.

'"Trump" can be so useful,' joked one Chinese blogger who also praised other products inspired by the billionaire politician, including stress balls, wine bottle openers and underpants.

I didn't think it'd take China too long, once the CFC-11 emissions were traced. I'm no big fan of the Chinese government overall, but I will give them this much credit — they are unforgiving of companies that poison people, animals, or the world. Remember a few years back when it was found that Chinese companies were putting melamine in pet food and baby formula because it artificially (and falsely) boosted the protein numbers on nutrition assays? China executed the corporate officers and managers responsible for that. They've been aggressively identifying and shutting down their highest-polluting power stations and steelworks, and the principal reason why the bottom fell out of the market for Alberta's tar sands is because China decided dilbit is too dirty to use and they don't want it any more.

Interview: China’s ‘Big Brother’ App | Human Rights Watch


The app provides an unprecedented window into mass surveillance in Xinjiang. It aggregates data – from people’s blood type and height, to information about their electricity usage and package deliveries – and alerts authorities when it deems someone or something suspicious. It is part of the Integrated Joint Operations Platform (IJOP), the main system for mass surveillance in Xinjiang. Human Rights Watch “reverse engineered” the app, and Nazish Dholakia spoke to Human Rights Watch senior China researcher Maya Wang about what the process revealed.

Solarenergie vom Mond

Während sich der deutsche Dieselmichel noch über die Gretaisierung der Welt echauffiert, mit Verweis auf das schon Erreichte und mit Zeigefinger auf "böse Schwellenländer" wie #China, die sich anmaßen, bei sich den gleichen #Wohlstand zu implementieren wie in der Michelrasse üblich, folgen wir einfach mal dem ausgestreckten Zeigefinger und schauen, was China so macht.

China will Robots auf den Mond schießen, die dann vor Ort eine gigantische Solaranlage errichten, deren erzeugter Strom mittels eines Mikrowellenstrahls zu einem Relaissatelliten in der Erdumlaufbahn gelenkt wird, wo er mittels riesiger Teleskopantennen aufgefangen und zur Erde weitergeleitet wird. Auf jeder Seite des Mondes eine oder mehrere solcher Anlagen, und man hat immer Strom. Denn auf dem Mond gibt es kein Wetter, und die Sonne scheint immer. Think big, not Michel!
 
"Although she was not carrying any prohibited items, she was told she would be refused entry unless she removed her make-up, to avoid "distressing" other passengers."

It's nice to see, that there's some kind of rebellion visible in China. They have to open up more to their citizens.
