How China Is Deploying Drones and Data to Tackle Coronavirus        Video        WSJ        9 March 2020

 

From drones that scold to neighbors who snitch,

China is relying on its vast surveillance network

to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

 

WSJ takes a close look at its national monitoring experiment

that’s made up of human volunteers and big data.

It is estimated

that more than 30,000 pets have been left stranded

after the Chinese government sealed off Wuhan

following the coronavirus outbreak.

 

In response, people trapped in Wuhan have been volunteering

and checking in on the animals whose owners are stuck outside the city.

China Doesn't Like That I'm a Single Woman, Here's Why        NYT        13 February 2020

 

 

 

 

China Doesn't Like That I'm a Single Woman, Here's Why | Op-Docs        Video        The New York Times        13 February 2020

 

“Sheng nu” (“leftover women”)

is a term used to describe

single women who are 27 or older in China.

 

Most of these women live in cities

and lead rewarding professional lives.

 

The term was coined in 2007

by a government organization

responsible for the protection

and promotion of women’s rights and policies.

 

That same year,

the Ministry of Education added

“sheng nu” to the official lexicon.

 

In this Op-Doc,

based on the Independent Lens

feature documentary “Leftover Women,”

we follow one of those women — Qiu Huamei,

contending with the stigma and social pressure forcing her

to go on a grueling quest in search of a husband.

 

She grew up in a small village five hours south of Beijing

and is the second youngest of five sisters.

 

Ms. Qiu is a successful lawyer,

fluent in English and opinionated

— but those qualities do not outweigh one key flaw:

She is not married.

China: Why They Must Free Our Parents From Concentration Camps        NYT        19 August 2019

 

 

 

 

China: Why They Must Free Our Parents From Concentration Camps | NYT Opinion        Video        NYT        19 August 2019

 

In the video Op-Ed above,

three Chinese citizens whose parents disappeared

demand their release from China’s “re-education camps.”

 

The government is estimated

to have detained over one million people.

 

The goal:

to force China’s Uighur ethnic minority

to assimilate.

 

China’s decades-long campaign

against the Uighur minority has surged in recent years

through the construction of hundreds of detention camps.

 

Even outside of detention centers,

millions of Uighurs in China’s Xinjiang region

live in a virtual prison.

 

The surveillance state

deploys sophisticated technology,

including facial recognition tracking,

compulsory apps that monitor mobile phones,

and even DNA collection.

 

China has justified its actions

as a fight against religious extremism

within the predominantly Muslim ethnic minority.

 

The state has also defended the camps

as “boarding schools” for job retraining.

Yet community leaders,

including secular citizens and academics,

have been targeted for detention.

 

The international community

has widely condemned China’s actions.

 

The United States Congress

is considering legislation to do so.

 

And, in late July,

China claimed to have released most detainees

— yet experts and on-the-ground reporting

suggest that the detention camps persist,

and are even expanding.

If It Were My Home

 

The headlines tell a lot

about the crisis in Yemen:

internal strife,

evacuations

of international aid workers,

Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

 

But you may have

one very basic question

that you can't easily find

an answer for:

How big is Yemen, anyway?

 

You can look at maps

and check out Wikipedia

but wouldn't it be great

to just to slap an outline of Yemen

on top of a map of the United States

to get a sense of its size?

 

IfItWereMyHome.com

lets you do just that.
