Takeout Take Away

Wildlife Farms Promoted as "Get Rich Quick" Schemes on Chinese TV

Live peacocks sold at the market. For the last 20 years Chinese TV has promoted wildlife farms as "get rich quick" schemes for folks in rural backwaters. Even when these farms -- and related wild animal collections for market sales -- were implicated in prior SARS outbreaks, they were not shut down.

Remembering Nüshu.

I posted about Nüshu, a form of writing developed by women in Hunan province, back in 2004, but a) that was a long time ago and b) the links are dead, so it might not be amiss to present Lauren Young’s Atlas Obscura piece on the subject: In 1988, Yi Nianhua, a woman in her 80s, spent many evenings scribbling elegant characters at a table in her kitchen in a small rice-farming village in Shangjiangxu, China. With only a blunt writing brush, the elongated script came out fat and blotchy on the new...
