Fearless man pulls tiger’s tail in Southwest China. I think it’s super dangerous, because powerful animals such as tiger can kill a man easily if the moment presents an opportunity for danger. Nonetheless, I wonder how the man in the video feels so confident to be around a tiger in such close vicinity. Now I’m guessing the man is either a zoo keeper which has trained the tiger somehow or he is a pure fool, but a brave one who does not know how to feel danger. Anyway, it’s kind of cool to see the tiger just let the man pulls on its tail without gnawing the man to pieces. Check out the video right after the break. Enjoy!
On the day of Chinese New Year’s Lantern Festival in Guangzhou, China (2017), people got to witness 1,000 drones lit up Guangzhou’s night sky with various beautiful colors. The drones were synched up in different patterns that got purposeful meaning to the Chinese people. According to Chinese news services, the 1,000 drones performance just set a Guinness World Record since thus far it’s a biggest number of drones in the sky at once. What is amazing is that none of these drones was crashing into each other, and so the automation of fly patterns for drones is definitely ready for prime time. Don’t you think the future will be involving with more of drones that behave as if fireworks have gone off in the dark but beautiful night sky? Perhaps, the prediction of automation will come true in regarding to putting firework business out of business? In summary, these swarm formations of drone performance might be more fashionable and future proof than firework… but by witnessing how drones got to be so automated is making us worry for our future. We may worry how futuristic AI’s automation will put hundreds if not thousands of outdated, typical human jobs and businesses out of service. If I’m not wrong, I think Chinese Lantern Festival is usually celebrated on the last day of Chinese New Year. This year is all about the roosters, and so eat more chicken! Check out the drone synch performance of 1,000 drones in Chinese New Year night sky in the video right after the break. Enjoy!
In a time when there are forces within various countries calling for more protectionism, China’s president Xi Jinping addresses the World Economic Forum in Davos for the very first time to encourage for even more globalization. Mr. Xi Jinping describes protectionism is like locking oneself in a dark room where wind and rain may be kept out, but light and air are also going to be kept out. Since China has had success with opening up to the world since China joined WTO (World Trade Organization), and so China sees that opening up is a good thing. Of course, Mr. Xi Jinping also recognizes globalization is also a double edge sword, because in an optimistic world globalization can boost trade and profits, but in a pessimistic world globalization can cut off trades and market accesses. Anyhow, Mr. Xi Jinping is the first Chinese president to address WEF in Davos, and his detailed speech is in the video right after the break. Enjoy!
China is continuing to expand her space program, and so it’s not a surprise to see China just launches a new crewed space mission from Shenzhou. This mission is known as Shenzhou-11. It seems that this time the two astronauts of this new space mission will try to stay in space longer than any other Chinese astronaut had done before. Basically, this is another step for China to do trial and error test experimentation in her ambition to have a more complete, permanent space station in 2020.
In this early years of the 21st century, we know that superpower countries won’t go to war against each other, because they all got nuclear weapons. Of course, I hope I’m right about this, because it could be a disaster for humankind if superpowers do go all out against one another. Anyway, the United States is facing a real challenge as Russia and China team up ever closer to carve out more influence in the world. The United States of course wants to stay number one and dictate the direction of the world’s trajectory, but Russia and China are not playing the United States’ game. Just recently, Russia and China carried out huge military exercise in South China Sea. The video right after the break demonstrates how China and Russia team up in military trainings and efforts.
