It appears he had run a red light on an electric scooter and, rather than stop and pay a fine, he had fled. According to his friends, he was gunned down three kilometers later. The official state narrative, posted a few days after the incident, says he attacked the police officers with stones, tried to grab their guns, and so on. Regardless of how, Abdulbasit died within hours. His body was given to his family for burial.

e-collective “From a deep pool of blue ink rises an image…” – this is written on Blueprint‘s homepage, a digital collective that describes itself as a Chinese creative group with no artistic bounds. In an “Internet world” filled with many options for exploring different kinds of creative content, we find ourselves frequently entering Blueprint’s creative world. Their distinctive style comes from the ambient / “lowercase” electronic sound they produce as well as their visual works, which exude a subtle mysticism. The depth and breadth of content under the “Blueprint” name actually comes from members who live in many cities, including Zhengzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Nanjing, among others. It’s important to note here that the new generation of Chinese creatives can’t be neatly divided into the usual first tier city, second tier city, etc. classifications.

You’re also able to search for the hottest content (or shoulf that be filling?)

China's Consumer Market: explained Just finished the book, Chocolate Fortunes: The Battle for the Hearts, Minds, and Wallets of China’s Consumers, by Lawrence L. Allen. It’s a very good book. The book is about the competition between Hershey’s, Mars, Ferraro Rocher, Nestle and Cadbury for the Chinese consumer. But it is really more about what it takes to succeed in the consumer products business in China. And lest anyone ever thought China consumer sales would be easy, Chocolate Fortunes thoroughly dispels that notion, while explaining exactly what it does take to succeed or fail in China. China Philanthropy While no one event rocked China’s social sector in 2013, each change in policy making the NPO registration process less complex and founding of another foundation summed up together equaled great forward movement for the Chinese philanthropic sector. With the start of a new lunar year, the media and many organizations have published their roundups of the most important events from 2013 in China’s social sector. We at SVG have put together a roundup of the roundups to help you recap the events of 2013 and put them into perspective as we head into another year.

Marketing in China 1: Think Local Act Local When more than 300 people attired in red and blue jackets with the words "I Love China" emblazoned over them lined up for the raising of the national flag at the world famous Tian An Men Square in several winter mornings of 1996, one would expect their faces would be all be Chinese. Their whole-hearted explosive singing of the Chinese National Anthem with the raising of the flag each morning made them sound like a squad from the local cadet academy.
