China’s Tianwen-1 Mars orbiter and rover are speeding toward the Red Planet and preparing to arrive on Feb. 10, the China National Space Administration (CNSA) has said.
Tianwen-1 has been in space for nearly 24 weeks and was around 81 million miles (130 million kilometers) from Earth and 5.15 million miles (8.3 million km) from Mars on Jan. 3 Beijing time, according to CNSA.
The world’s largest winter festival has quietly opened in China amid the COVID-19 pandemic as the country grapples with coronavirus flare-ups in several regions.
A sprawling ‘Kingdom of Ice and Snow’, a theme park built entirely with local ice chunks, was illuminated by neon lights as the 37th Harbin Ice and Snow Festival officially kicked off on Tuesday.
As the main tourist attraction of Harbin, which is known as China’s ‘City of Ice’, the wintry carnival usually draws hundreds of millions of visitors a year.But this year, the number of visitors has dropped and the organiser said it had to cancel the festival’s opening ceremony to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
HONG KONG – Before dawn, Facebook news feeds here began filling up, post upon post detailing arrest after arrest. A crackdown on the city’s democracy movement was unfolding.
By late Wednesday morning, at least 53 Hong Kong residents – former lawmakers, activists and an American lawyer among them – had been detained under Beijing’s new national security law, and their offices and homes raided. Accused of subversion, they face up to life in prison for holding a primary vote last year ahead of legislative elections that were ultimately postponed and which many of them were barred from contesting.
SINGAPORE — Several major Chinese cities have reportedly gone dark as authorities limit power usage, citing a shortage of coal.
Analysts said prices of the commodity in the country have shot up due to the reported crunch. The reports also follow rising trade tensions between Beijing and Canberra, leading some analysts to tie the coal shortages and blackouts to the unofficial ban on Australian coal.
Relations between the two nations soured last year after Australia supported an international inquiry into China’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Coal is just one in a growing list of Australian goods that China is targeting, as a result of their escalating dispute.
The Chinese Army is now incorporating a remote-controlled skull-bomb in Army helmets to self-destruct soldiers if being captured or failing to follow orders, and destroy their gear, to protect secrecy! Put simply, if they don’t kill YOU, their bosses will kill them, by remote control.
Recently, the Chinese Communist Party’s official media revealed a digital individual combat device worn on soldiers’ heads developed by the Tibet Military Region , which claims to directly provide guidance for artillery and aviation.
This equipment system is also equipped with a self-destruct device that can be activated remotely by the commander, claiming that this is to “maintain military dignity” and prevent system information leakage.
A federal appeals court in New York has upheld the bribery conviction of the former chairman of a think tank funded by a Chinese energy company linked to Hunter Biden.
The three-judge panel on Tuesday affirmed the December 2018 conviction of Patrick Ho Chi-ping, 70, a former Hong Kong government official, for violations involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act for trying to bribe high-ranking officials in Chad and Uganda.
The prevalence of obesity has become a worldwide phenomenon, and in China, the world’s most populous country, adults are becoming increasingly overweight.
It seems that over the last few decades, China has “absorbed” the best the “West” has had to offer, which includes fast-food restaurants, credit cards, smartphones, apps, and also all the stolen intellectual property, but at the same time imported the worst.
We outlined in 2013 that American influence (“lazy lifestyles”) was quickly spreading across China, creating a massive and unspoken diabetes crisis.
Fast forward seven years later, shocking new statistics show the percentage of overweight Chinese adults has skyrocketed since the early 2000s, according to BBC News.
China’s National Health Commission wrote in a new report that in 2002, 29% of adults were overweight. As of 2020, the figure is now 50% of adults are classified as overweight, of whom 16.4% are obese.
The Chinese Communist Party’s COVID-19/Wuhan virus disinformation campaign (cover-up) rates as 2020’s biggest Big Lie. By any measure, especially body count, the CCP committed 2020’s most consequential and deadliest falsehood.
The following analysis summarizes decisions and actions by China’s communist rulers from December 2019’s final days through the end of January 2020, when U.S. President Donald Trump shut down air travel between mainland China and America.
