The powers that be and players may have changed. Apparently Hong Kongers can't accept China replacing the British colonial masters. Li Ka-shing's filthy wealth is both the love of pursuit and hatred of the struggling working people. The young protestors demanding for universal suffrage were not even...

Modern liberals, leftists, feminists are opposed to revival of Confucianist type grooming of ladies who could cook well, well versed with poetry and social etiquette. A blast from the past may reassure them that Confucian teachings should not be feared, as it is actually progressive and liberating?

Confucius (kong fuzi) was a single dad, allowed his widowed daughter-in-law to remarry and his grandson was divorced. Though this is not entirely "news" to historians and philosophers, the little facts of the sage's life have been highlighted to show that he was a pragmatic, flexible and o...

Xi Jinping's bid to place landmarks on Sino-American relations appears to be a reverse of Nixon-Kissinger initiatives in the 1970s. US policies have been led by conservatives for several decades.

This is China's way of reversing desertification. Success comes from perseverance. “After prolonged efforts, desertification in China has been initially reversed, with trees and grass springing up where deserts used to be.
