Chinese products boost freedom, human rights

In labeling Chinese technologies a tool of so-called Chinese state spying, Washington is mixing business with politics. In the end, the US is losing precious time to innovate.

Celebrities should see beyond dazzle and glitter

We need artists and contributors – not celebrities who earn more than the pillars of our society such as scientists, doctors, teachers and everyone else. Also, I really couldn't care less and am really sick of hot trends going on and on about how one cannot love any more because X and Y got a divorce or X and Z broke up.

But at the same time, Chinese people may need to learn more about naming battles in other countries to be able to see global names they pick up in the correct historical context.
