    More supply chain stuff to piggy pack on page 25-26 of this thread.

    The chairman of Foxconn — which is a key supplier in supply chains for products such as the iPhone, Xbox, BlackBerry, and Kindle — recently told The Financial Times he foresees global supply chains splitting into two groups. "It will be one for China and those associated with it and another for the U.S. and their friends," he said.

    Mongolia announced in March that they'd be changing their alphabet from Cyrillic back to the traditional script...

    ...which coincidentally or obviously, is the same one used by the people in Inner Mongolia. So, of course, China had to do what China does.

    Xi, speaking at a ceremony honouring role models during the country's fight against the disease, said China is the first major economy to return to growth during the pandemic – a fact he said demonstrates the country's strong abilities and vitality.

    The country had taken concrete efforts that helped save tens of millions of lives around the world during the pandemic, he said.

    "We have passed an extraordinary and historic test," Xi said, praising the country for a "heroic struggle" against the disease.

    "We quickly achieved initial success in the people's war against the coronavirus. We are leading the world in economic recovery and in the fight against Covid-19."


    There was no mention however of whistleblower doctor Li Wenliang, who was among the first to be silenced for raising the alarm about the outbreak and later died from the disease.
    Also no mention of an apology to the world for the cover-ups, poor hygiene, and lack of animal welfare protection that led the whole globe into this deadly mess.

    Anecdotal evidence shows nobody has any money. Commercial rents have fallen 50% or more. Lots of restaurants and smaller shops are closed, the air hasn't been that clean in 20 years, car sales are down and even the SCMP is running articles about domestic consumption being a pipe dream.

    I think rthk writers, with their hands tied, are quite clever.

    A foreign language take on a local classic, with local looking actors who don't act very locally?

    Who would have thought.

    So...John Boyega was chosen as brand ambassador for Jo Malone. So he made a mini advert film. He hand picked director and casting for a script he wrote and in which he starred. Only problem, in China they re-filmed the same video completely, but with a Chinese actor.

    I reckon after this, he might not count on being casted for any Disney movie anytime soon.
