Video: Two Cars Ran over a Woman at a Crossing Line; Pedestrians Were Indifferent

Recently, a 1 minute 34 seconds video of a “car accident” circulated on the social media in China. A woman was hit at the cross line. She was left lying on the ground for 1 minute without anyone coming to help move her away from the many coming and going pedestrians. A car then ran over her a second time and she died.

On June 7, netizen friend @YuanQicong released a video on the microblog. In the video, a red taxi hit a woman at a zebra crossing. After that, several cars and many pedestrians passed by, but no one tried to help her get up. During this time, the woman tried to sit up but did not succeed. A minute later, a sport utility vehicle ran over the woman  a second time.

Local netizens said the incident site is located at the College Road bus station in Henan Zhumadian City of Henan Province.

The video can be viewed on the website.

China Uses High Salaries to Lure High-Tech Talent Away from South Korea

On June 8, Duowei News reported that South Korean media revealed how Chinese companies are “systematically” luring industrial talent away from South Korea. The losses has reached a very serious level. South Korea seems helpless in the face of such a situation.

According to a report from South Korea’s Asian Economy, many Koreans with technical talent, from the cosmetics, the food and other basic necessities field, to information and communications, semiconductors, biotechnology and other cutting-edge areas, are jumping ship voluntarily and succumbing to the temptation of Chinese enterprises’ high salaries.

In particular, many Koreans with talent are helping China’s semiconductor industry to rise. It has made the Korean government and the industry very nervous. Although the Korean government has deployed investigative teams to prevent the domestic semiconductor cutting-edge technology from leaking, it has not yet found an effective way.

It is reported that China’s semiconductor companies attract South Korean talent with 3 to 10 times the annual salaries that Korean companies offer, in addition to housing and cars as well as a commitment to solve their children’s education related issues.

Duowei News: China Is Starting a New Model for Social Management

On May 28, 2017, Duowei reported that Mainland China is now building its own model for social management. The Singapore model was previously the model that “the Chinese mainland officials used for training,” but the use of that model has been weakening.

Recently, the Hong Kong newspaper, the South China Morning Post  published an article titled, “Has China developed to the stage that it no longer needs Singapore as an example?” Singapore had always been the primary overseas training ground for Chinese officials. It was a “key pillar” to support the bilateral relations of both countries; however, now the role of the Lion City seems to be changing.

Political observers said that the “overseas” training program for government officials from mainland China, which started in the Deng Xiaoping era, has been implemented for more than 20 years. The change in the world’s political and economic landscape today has led Beijing to believe that “the Chinese model is the world’s real development direction.” China spares no effort in “trying to be an example for the rest of the world.” Feeling good about itself, China has undergone dramatic psychological changes in how it views the outside world.

China Infuriated by G7 Summit Joint Bulletin’s Remarks on South China Sea

When responding to reporters, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Keng announced that China is extremely dissatisfied with the G7 summit’s joint statement on the East China Sea and the South China Sea issues. He said that the G7 summit is dictating to China (on what to do) in the name of international law.

Lu said, “We hope that the Group of Seven and the foreign countries will recognize the situation and abide by their commitments not to take sides on controversial issues; fully respect the efforts that the countries in the region make to control disputes; stop issuing irresponsible remarks; and play a constructive role in the peace and stability in the region.

People’s Daily: The Japanese Factor in Cross-Strait Relations Will Exist for a Long Time

Wang Jian, a scholar at the Institute of Modern History at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, published an article in the Japanese Journal (2017, No. 2 issue) titled, “The Evolution of Taiwan-Japan Relations in the 21st Century,” with the subtitle, “The Structural Contradictions between Taiwan and Japan and the Factors Impacting Future Trends.” The article pointed out that since the start of the 21st century, the relationship between Taiwan and Japan has undergone a series of changes. In Chen Shui-bian’s administration, there were frequent interactions in the political and security areas. The tendency toward “jurisprudential independence” made the Taiwan crisis even more prominent. After Ma Ying-jeou took office, he started the “flexible diplomacy” and initiated the “special partnership between Taiwan and Japan Year” program. The relations between Taiwan and Japan showed an upward trend which continued after the East Japan earthquake. Today difficult-to-reconcile structural contradictions between Japan and Taiwan still remain, including fishing rights in the Douglas Reef (Okino Tori Shima), the export ban on food from five Fukushima counties to Taiwan, and the Taiwan-Japan EPA negotiations. After Tsai Ing-wen came to power, the contradictions started to “intensify.” Taiwan-Japan relations gradually come down to the reality of interests from the too high “expectations” from the past. The factors affecting the relationship such as the Sino-U.S., Sino-Japanese, Japan-U.S. and the cross-strait relations are also being adjusted accordingly, but they will have more uncertainty. From the perspective of the Taiwan DPP authorities’ choice of foreign policy, the future relationship between Taiwan and Japan will be closer. Their alliance for common interests to compete against China’s mainland is still the biggest variable.
