Fable Story - Yu Gong Moving Away Mountains. The following is a story well-known to almost every Chinese.

Fable Story - Yu Gong Moving Away Mountains

Old Man Moves a Mountain. Tatxmg and Wangwu are two mountains with an area of seven hundred li square and rise to a great height of thousands of ren.

Old Man Moves a Mountain

They were originally situated south of Jizhou and north of Heyang. North of the mountains lived an old man called Yugong (literally 'foolish old man') who was nearly ninety years old. Since his home faced the two mountains, he was troubled by the fact that they blocked the way of the inhabitants who had to take a roundabout route whenever they went out. He gathered his family together to discuss the matter. Turns Out China IS Lying About Everything. In what may come as a shocking surprise to exactly nobody, the next great discovery as more and more layers of the global ponzi onion are exposed, is that China was, in fact, lying about everything.

Turns Out China IS Lying About Everything

Yes, we know, stunning. From the NYT: As the Chinese economy continues to sputter, prominent corporate executives in China and Western economists say there is evidence that local and provincial officials are falsifying economic statistics to disguise the true depth of the troubles. Record-setting mountains of excess coal have accumulated at the country’s biggest storage areas because power plants are burning less coal in the face of tumbling electricity demand. But local and provincial government officials have forced plant managers not to report to Beijing the full extent of the slowdown, power sector executives said. Even that lonely indicator that some, even us, had considered somewhat realistic: electric output, is a mirage. The question is whether the actual slowdown is even worse. Taoism.


The Chinese Communist Party. Introduction The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is the founding and ruling political party of modern China, boasting more than eighty-two million members to date.

The Chinese Communist Party

In 2012, the CCP underwent a pivotal once-in-a-decade power transition that saw its fifth generation of leaders set the future agenda for the second-largest economy in the world. While the party has maintained a political monopoly since its founding, the effects of China's rapid economic growth have triggered increasing social unrest and political destabilization that challenge the country's rise as a global power. A spate of political scandals has also exposed deep power struggles inside the infamously opaque organization. While the changeover will do little to affect immediate party policy and direction, the implications of the new appointments could shed some light on how China plans to position itself on the world stage. China's President Xi Jinping Named Head Of New Security Body. BEIJING (AP) — Chinese President Xi Jinping was formally named head of a new national security body Friday, in a move that further strengthens his status as the most powerful Chinese leader in two decades.

China's President Xi Jinping Named Head Of New Security Body

Xi is already leader of the ruling Communist Party and head of dual state and party commissions commanding the armed forces. Last month, he was named head of a reform commission, giving him overall control over the world's second largest economy and sidelining premier and sometimes-rival Li Keqiang. The new position as chairman of the National Security Commission gives Xi ultimate control over the police and sprawling state security apparatus. That authority used to be held by the party's head of domestic security. "Xi has undoubtedly emerged as a strong man, with significantly more power that (predecessors) Hu Jintao and Jiang Zemin," said Willy Lam, a political scientist at the Chinese University of Hong Kong who closely follows the Chinese leadership.

The Bai people – Yunnan’s second largest nationality. In China’s southwestern Yunnan province, there’s a picturesque city called Dali.

The Bai people – Yunnan’s second largest nationality

Dali is known for its historical and cultural status, being a capital of ancient kingdoms, but it is also known as the home of the Bai ethnic group. In the past, the group was known as the “Heman,” “Baiman” and “Bairen” people. In the 1950’s, The Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture was founded and the group was officially named as the Bai nationality. Bai means “white” in Chinese, referring to the white clothes that the Bai people like to wear. The Bai worship the color white, and their architecture reflects this.
