In case you missed them in your Facebook or Twitter feeds, here are articles we linked to in the week:
- NASA posted a stunning photo of Taiwan and China’s eastern coast taken at night from the International Space Station, 223 miles above Earth. If you’re wondering, the clusters of blue lights in the water are fishing boats using fishing light attractors.
- In northern Thailand, near the border with Myanmar and a few hundred kilometers from Yunnan Province, about 200 families descended from a unit of the Kuomintang army that fled China during the Chinese Civil War hold on to their Chinese identity and culture.
- Cuisine from the Hui and Uighur peoples (both Muslim groups in China) dominate Cairo’s Chinese food scene.
- 1986 was the first time a foreign leader directly addressed the Chinese people. It was for the Bears-Patriots Super Bowl broadcast in China.
- Taiwan looks to encourage innovation and enterprise by revamping its education system to adopt more Western-style practices such as encouraging extra-curricular activities and including personal interviews in college admissions. The reforms would make the country a pioneer and outlier amongst East Asian countries.
- We literally all breathe the same air. This animation from NASA shows how China’s air pollution is a global problem.
- Fascinating infographics about the exodus of wealthy Chinese from the PRC and the eligibility requirements they face in their potential adopted lands.
