Chua (Day of Empire) imparts the secret behind the stereotypical Asian child's phenomenal success: the Chinese mother. Chua promotes what has
traditionally worked very well in raising children: strict, Old World, uncompromising values--and the parents don't have to be Chinese. What they are,
however, are different from what she sees as indulgent and permissive Western parents: stressing academic performance above all, never accepting a
mediocre grade, insisting on drilling and practice, and instilling respect for authority. Chua and her Jewish husband (both are professors at Yale
Law) raised two girls, and her account of their formative years achieving amazing success in school and music performance proves both a model and a
cautionary tale. Sophia, the eldest, was dutiful and diligent, leapfrogging over her peers in academics and as a Suzuki piano student; Lulu was also
gifted, but defiant, who excelled at the violin but eventually balked at her mother's pushing. Chua's efforts "not to raise a soft, entitled child"
will strike American readers as a little scary--removing her children from school for extra practice, public shaming and insults, equating Western
parenting with failure--but the results, she claims somewhat glibly in this frank, unapologetic report card, "were hard to quarrel with." (Jan.)

How many days a week do Chinese students attend school?
In: School Subjects, Geometry [Edit categories]
In theory, school time from Monday to Friday. Owing to drastic competition many students have extra classes on Saturday. It seems the government has
taken measure to lighten students burden, but it cant control the situtation.
Commitment and Consistency - If people commit, orally or in writing, to an idea or goal, they are more likely to honor that commitment because of
establishing that idea or goal as being congruent with their self image. Even if the original incentive or motivation is removed after they have
already agreed, they will continue to honor the agreement. For example, in car sales, suddenly raising the price at the last moment works because the
buyer has already decided to buy. Cialdini notes Chinese brainwashing on American prisoners of war to rewrite their self image and gain automatic
unenforced compliance. See cognitive dissonance.
we were measured... with china using allies as cas paw
they won that exchange, and programed a few americans along the way... You know some even ran for office
Not trying to start a witch hunt but the truth is out there... and she aint pretty
With Google redirecting users to its Hong Kong search engine, powerful new results now show up for sensitive subjects such as the June 4 Tiananmen
crackdown, Taiwanese independence and the Dalai Lama.
not the greatest article on google and china, but you can look here on ats for that...
I am not going to accuse the executives of google of being traitors to the US either... they cut the deals... (did anyone check with the FCC... I
thought that old peice of paper stated only congress could cut deals with foriegn governments..)
China has announced on Tuesday that it is set to require telecom operators and internet service providers to report and cooperate with state security
officers on possible leak of state secrets, as the country moves further to tighten its grip on communication facilities and discourage political
again dont americans have to run things by the us government.. old peice of paper...
Look they dont control information with a tight fist in their country, the ration it.. so you only see what the chinese government approves... (net

WASHINGTON — University professor Gao Zhan, a human rights activist once celebrated in Washington, is today in U.S. custody, convicted of selling
sensitive U.S. technology to China — microprocessors that could be used in missiles.
Gao's activities are part of what senior U.S. officials say is an intensified campaign by the People's Republic of China to steal military and
use of agents for infiltration... of note... celebrated by DC people...
A secret FBI videotape showing the transfer of classified military documents to a communist Chinese agent was released in February to the world,
providing a brief peek at the shadowy world of espionage against America. Pentagon analyst Gregg Bergersen with the Defense Security Cooperation
Agency is shown receiving a wad of bills and telling People’s Republic of China spy Tai Shen Kuo that he’s “very reticent” to let him have the
information “because it’s all classified.”
They operate from a bare apartment on a Chinese island. They are intelligent 20-somethings who seem harmless. But they are hard-core hackers who claim
to have gained access to the world's most sensitive sites, including the Pentagon.
In fact, they say they are sometimes paid secretly by the Chinese government -- a claim the Beijing government denies.
Of note-- they denied it... of course the poor government did not do it.. the criminals hacked networks... (of note they have note been punished
classical chinese style)
In a February 17 online article entitled "Charity Case," Newsweek's Issac Stone Fish declared: "Whether they like it or not, China has been very good
for Tibetans." Fish's outrageous claim came on the eve of President Obama's Thursday meeting with Tibet's religious leader, the Dalai Lama.
In the traditional Chinese Society, women were oppressed and disrespected. The traditional role of women in China centered around the home, where they
were expected to serve their families.
Early in history, men dominated the Chinese society while women were subordinate to their fathers, husbands, brothers and sons. Arranged marriages
left women with virtually no voice in the society. Chinese women did not have rights and privileges.
Given its relatively low savings rate, the U.S. economy depends heavily on foreign capital
inflows from countries with high savings rates (such as China) to help promote growth and to
fund the federal budget deficit. China has intervened heavily in currency markets to limit the
appreciation of its currency, especially against the dollar. As a result, China has become the
world’s largest and fastest growing holder of foreign exchange reserves (FER). China has
invested a large share of its FER in U.S. securities, which, as of June 2008, totaled $1.2 trillion,
making China the second largest foreign holder of U.S. securities (after Japan).
These securities include long-term (LT) Treasury debt, LT U.S. agency debt, LT U.S. corporate debt, LT U.S.
equities, and short-term debt. It is likely that China became the largest foreign holder of U.S.
securities by the end of 2008. From June 2002 to June 2008, China’s holdings of U.S. securities
increased by over $1 trillion—far more than that of any other nation.
note the date... the great buy out....what happens if they dump them...
war by other means...
I know they bought a whole lot more... remember as each doubts hit you have to include all of the above slices...
Some 2 million people, consisting mainly of soldiers, Kuomintang party (KMT, Chinese Nationalist Party) members and most importantly the intellectual
and business elites, were evacuated from mainland China and arrived in Taiwan around that time. In addition, as part of its escape from Communists in
mainland China, the ROC government relocated to Taipei with many national treasures including gold reserves and foreign currency reserves. From
this period through the 1980s, Taiwan was governed in a state of Martial Law. Little to no distinction was made between the government and the
Nationalist party, with public property, government property, and party property being largely interchangeable. Government workers and party members
were mostly indistinguishable, with many government workers required to become KMT members, and party workers paid salaries and promised retirement
benefits along the lines of government employees. In addition, the creation of other parties was outlawed, and many political opponents were
persecuted and incarcerated.
its right there... what you do not see it... look closely...
china, as with its earlier policies has been observing its enemies... watching learning...
They beat the democratic government then exiled them and watched them... They have learned how corruption works in a democracy....
Hong Kong's population is 95 percent ethnic Chinese and 5 percent from other groups. Hong Kong's Han Chinese majority originate mainly from the
cities of Guangzhou and Taishan in the neighbouring Guangdong province.
Tiawan was the classroom... That makes Hong Kong the practicals... The chinese have had a decade to test...
Not saying anything, how bad has us corruption gotten in the last say ten years...
To bring this to a conclusion, you have gotten a thinslice of chinas actions....
Background summary, Chinese people, we have fought them in a war before, control of information, Chinese espionage, Chinese suppression, Chinese
economy, and dealings with capitalist
The only thing america and the rest of the world need to remember in dealing with china..
Ok their is china thin sliced... you can readily see they are playing a game of go.. piece by piece getting ready to drop the western world...
the Chinese are presuing the highest arts of war.. Ttheir is no path available to true peace as long as china denies it actions and continues it acts
of passive agressive warfare...
Now to thin slice america...
instead here is a video for your veiwing pleasure....
to americas enemies... do your own research... we see you...
What I saw when I wrote the thin slice along different lines of america... It was close, so close that in the original conclusion that the knowledge
of america thin sliced damage odds of america winning...
Screw that, my country may be getting worse and nazi like, but it is still better then the rest of the alternatives... It can be fixed...
As it has been said...
I am loyal to my country and her ideals..
Please note: country is not equal to government...
I know this is a side note:
I 'saw' the americans prep work... visions rock some times
Its really gonna suck to be china...
edit on 26-1-2011 by ripcontrol because: must not allow information to fall into enemy hands...
wow being in the us army looks really boring, plus going down in a blaze of glory are they tacking the piss, its not glorious to die, especially not
when you are invading other nations. they must reallly be trying to recruit some dumb asses with that video.
All going to be to close to reality.... way too close... except, for some small mistake by china...
almost, almost will they win...
for the agents and ijuts to prove I am wrong (hence their fall back of ignorant) they have to debate the whole thing and not just in parts.. and while
debating those parts they have to prove without the use of disinformation techniques they are right...
A small prayer for my brothers and sisters:
(hits another ATS member, bow your head, there are no aeithist in a foxhole)
O heavenly father we humbley beseech you,
In this short time, in the dawntime of peace
we know that we face a world of dangers,
we know are leaders are corrupt,
we you know the officers are idiots,
but you gave us sarge and chief and for that we are thankful,
all we ask before enter the day,
with the light shining brightly,
we ask you only for one thing,
Will you please us some leaders that work for a living...
lol was that mel gibson waving an american flag around, he must really hate the english, first braveheart and now beating up english soldiers with an
american flag. he must feel really bitter about his criminal abbo killing ancestors being banished from england for stealing apples
all u yanks do something useful
all you chinese do something useful.
sick of hearing about both of you
Mods please do not remove his post... even though it borders on rudeness, he brings up a point in his own special way...
I am only guessing here uk citizen..
psychologically it makes you mammy..
otherwise aus, nz, canada, or ireland
makes you a little brother or sister...
You should start caring very much... Our fates are tied together... If we get dropped do you really think you can hold your own.... They take Japan as
they are preparing to(it is not me it is the numbers...), added tech innovation... the cats paw of NK...
A little asian co-prosperity sphere action... can your country stand alone...
The answer is no... We are the UKs children... who in turn is the child of the roman empire... while her Majesty's bio-line was a barbarian learning
that it is not wise to crap in it sleeping hut, the chinese were perfecting the art of killing being courtiers in a court were the use of death and
execution would make the west shiver...
The culture is older and deadlier then you expect... If you think your not on their list your insane... or worse following his advice ... peace at any
I know earlier in another thread I was giving the pro-american WWII arguments I give credit where it is due... without Winston...I am not so sure we
would have entered WWII
Favorite thing about him was that he and patton pissed in the Rhine...its true look it up
I will use the whole of ATS for this next part... Are your sure, china is not trying the whole takeover against other countries already... The talk of
the Euro being dead already... You think the chinese had nothing to do with it...
You wont knock down the americans without being ready to jack the other countries as well... You would be ready to move quickly on the rest... 70 plus
years to plan this...
The world leaders may be being out played... note this is below a theory and merely supposition... Who profits most from a world wide depression? (
this is part of the numbers but not the highest possibility)
who can take the hit... and be able to Mao-ve the largest standing armies in the world.. After all the rest of the world will be using its military to
clamp down on its 'free' people...
You cant support the actual makings of war when your broke...
yeah i quite like the leathal weapon films but joe pesci annoys me in some of them, mad max was quite cool too.
also i didnt realise he is actually american and only moved to australia as a child so i suppose i was wrong to call his ancestors abbo killers but
who knows if any ever stole any apples. but mel if your reading, i am very very sorry if you where insulted by my comments.
I saw the article below and had to laugh. Not a happy kind of laugh, a sardonic, cynical kind of laugh. Essentially, to assuage any guilt about their
role in helping to send U.S. jobs overseas, ignoring horrendous human rights abuses and enabling big business destruction of U.S. manufacturing
china is not communist...???
just read it youll see... I disagree, chinas operating system IS communist... A smart person will say dictatorship...
The Chinese connection exploded with the arrival of the Clinton administration. A younger crowd of American politicians had skipped the part about
patriotism, about the pledge of allegiance, about loyalty not only to country but to much of anything other than themselves. The Clinton policy toward
China was merely an extension of these values: What's in for us and how soon? The notion of national security was almost alien to them; besides, they
had the new paradigm of globalization to keep them warm. Here are just a few of the things that happened along the way:
It is a very good thing hillary is not president....So what damage would these ethics be doing as the secratary of state is doing business
Late on May 8, US Defense Secretary William S Cohen and George Tenet issued a joint press release stating neither the aircrew involved nor the
equipment were to blame for the incident. The first attempt to explain the bombing came on May 10. William Cohen told reporters "In simple terms,
one of our planes attacked the wrong target because the bombing instructions were based on an outdated map". The statement made no mention of the
CIA. It was subsequently revealed that the CIA possessed maps showing the embassy
