India says 20 troops killed in deadliest clash with China in decades

At least 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a "violent face-off" with Chinese forces along the disputed Himalayan frontier, the Indian army said Tuesday, in the deadliest clash between the nuclear-armed neighbours for more than four decades.

Nepal snubs powerful neighbour India by claiming disputed territory as its own in new map

The lower house of Nepal's parliament on Saturday approved a controversial new map of the country that includes areas disputed with India. The move signals a hardening of Nepal's position over a decades-long border row that has strained ties between the neighbours. India's foreign ministry rejected the map, arguing that the addition of Indian territory is not based on historical fact or evidence. "It is also violative of our current understanding to hold talks on outstanding boundary...

A long-running territorial dispute between India and Nepal has flared over a new Indian-built road to a revered Hindu pilgrimage site in Tibet that Nepal says passes through its territory. India has issued a strongly worded statement in which it objected to a new map issued by the Nepalese government showing the disputed areas as part of Nepal. “This unilateral act is not based on historical facts and evidence,” India said in the statement late Wednesday.

China says boy picked by Dalai Lama now a college graduate

China said Tuesday that a boy who disappeared 25 years ago after being picked by the Dalai Lama as Tibetan Buddhism’s second-highest figure is now a college graduate with a stable job. Very little information has been given about Gedhun Choekyi Nyima or his family since he went missing at age 6 shortly after being named the 11th Panchen Lama. China, which claims that Tibet is part of its territory, named another boy to the position, Gyaltsen Norbu, who is rarely seen and is believed to spend m...

Why the 'uplift of the Tibetan plateau' is a myth

Spicer and colleagues combine stable isotope and fossil paleoaltimetry to chart the growth of Tibet, the Himalaya and the Hengduan mountains through time and show the plateau is young, less that 15 million years old, and evolved not just by the collision of India with Eurasia but through multiple earlier mountain-building events and the infilling of deep ancient lowlands hosting subtropical monsoon-adapted biotas. This contradicts the idea of an old 'high and dry' proto-plateau.

What is egg coffee

Dalgona coffee might have become a viral TikTok trend, but its origins run much deeper than that. The creamy whipped coffee drink is actually a product of Asia (it’s especially popular in India and South Korea) but only recently gained popularity in the United States after catching the eye of a few influencers and celebrities. Its successor is egg coffee, a mainstay of cafes in Japan, Vietnam, and Korea. There are many variations of egg coffee throughout Asia. In Korea, for instance, a drin...

The World Is Awaking to the Ugly Realities of the Chinese Regime

Earlier this month, a McDonald’s restaurant in Guangzhou, in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong, was forced to remove a sign warning that “black people are not allowed to enter.” Upon removing it, McDonald’s told NBC News in a statement that the sign was “not representative of our inclusive values.”That sounds like what it almost certainly is: a product of the company’s communications department, called in to do damage control. And while we can accept that the McDonald’s corporation itse...

To Protect the Future, Hold China to Account

In the winter of 2002–2003, the deadly SARS coronavirus exploded out of China’s ‘wet-blood’ wildlife markets. SARS infected over 8,000 people worldwide and killed almost 800. Yet post-crisis, China laxly enforced bans on the offending markets, only to permit them to flourish soon thereafter. Today’s COVID-19 is the deadly and avoidable legacy of China’s recklessness.U.S. secretary of state Mike Pompeo has proclaimed that COVID-19 stems from just such Chinese ‘wet-blood’ markets.

Iggy Pop's "We Are the People" is based on a poem penned in 1970 by his old friend, the great Lou Reed.
