Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou To Run For President of Taiwan

hackingbear writes: Terry Gou, the billionaire founder of electronics giant Foxconn, is stepping down from his role as chairman to run for president of Taiwan.

So I Read the Manifesto

I read through the Christchurch gunman’s manifesto. It is, in so many words, 75 pages of “Great Replacement” ideology. Most of the first half or so is rambling and looks written quickly. It includes a faux Q&A with himself, explaining his background, motivations, aims. Along the way there are a few jokes, a number of allusions to racist internet memes and even quotes. The first half has a casual, rushed quality. The second half almost reads like it’s written by a different person. The writing ...

The question of if the Chinese economy is technically capitalist remains unanswered. When people today think of a communist country, they often think of The People's Republic of China. Once known as a promoter of global revolution, it is now better known as the workshop of the wor...

‘Christopher Robin’ Won’t Be Released in China Amid Censorship Crusade Against Winnie the Pooh

Just when you thought 2018 couldn’t get any stranger, Winnie the Pooh has become a polarizing political figure…in China? And it’s not because of his lack of pants, nor his habit of stealing honey from bees (what’s up with that, Pooh!), but because he apparently has a striking resemblance to the President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping. Because of that, a Christopher Robin China release has been denied by the country, as the Chinese government cracks down on all images of the sill...
