O novo normal

Best seller

Lots of people inside and outside China have heard Premier Li Keqiang promote mass entrepreneurship and innovation in speeches. Far fewer know where he got the idea. It comes at least in part from the Upper West Side of Manhattan—specifically from the mind of Edmund Phelps, a Nobel prize-winning economist and Columbia University professor who wrote a 2013 book called Mass Flourishing: How Grassroots Innovation Created Jobs, Challenge, and Change. The book has sold 100,000 copies in China, about 10 times as many as in the U.S., Phelps says

Pseudônimos

Pseudonyms were especially popular among Chinese pre-revolutionary and revolutionary writers of the 20th century, such as Lu Xun.

“For Lu Xun, it was about individual creative freedom,” said Liang Hong, a professor of Chinese literature at the China Youth University of Political Sciences in Beijing. “It also had to do with the political climate at the time. He wrote under different pen names, in part to evade censors.”

Uighur pop star

Unlike the country’s majority Han Chinese, Uighurs are of Turkic origin and mostly Muslim. As with Tibet, Xinjiang is historically a contested space, held by a series of Turkic, Mongol and Han empires, including the 18th century Qing Dynasty, which gave the region its current name, meaning “New Frontier.” In the 1930s, Uighur leaders in the ancient Silk Road entrepôt of Kashgar declared the first of two short-lived East Turkestan Republics.

E-Commerce no Brasil

Nenhum site vende tanto na internet brasileira quanto o chinês AliExpress, parte do gigante Alibaba. Segundo o Ibope E-Commerce, a empresa é líder em unidades vendidas no País, com 11 milhões de pedidos entre julho e setembro, bem à frente das 7,2 milhões de unidades do segundo colocado, o grupo B2W, que reúne as marcas Americanas.com e Submarino.

Cerca de dois terços das compras de brasileiros no site se concentram em moda e acessórios. As mulheres, aliás, concentram 60% dos pedidos de brasileiros no site.

Comparações Brasil e Coreia do Sul

Por que protagonizamos um desastre e a Coreia do Sul um sucesso? O que nos diferenciou deles? Educação? Instituições? Cultura? Leis? É difícil dizer. Se alguém voltasse à década de 1970 não teria facilidade prever em a trajetória que o futuro guardava para os dois países. Ambos eram governados por regimes autoritários que usavam o poder do estado para induzir a dita industrialização. É verdade que a Coreia do Sul cuidava mais da educação, mas nós tínhamos abundância de recursos naturais e estávamos em uma região pacifica. Alguns vão dizer que as políticas industriais da Coreia do Sul foram melhores que as nossas, é uma resposta incompleta, por que fizemos políticas piores?

Desafios

Mas o menor e talvez mais admirado tigre asiático encara desafios para manter a alquimia que permitiu a um território minúsculo e sem recursos naturais estar entre os cinco países com maior renda per capita do mundo.

Entre os problemas estão o elevado custo de vida e o crescimento da desigualdade.

 

Jogos asiáticos 2014

Matéria do New York Times sobre os Jogos asiáticos de 2014

In terms of content, the Asian Games that open Friday in Incheon, South Korea, will be bigger than a Summer Olympics.

The 2012 London Olympics had 302 events in 26 sports. In Incheon, athletes will compete in 439 events in 36 sports and disciplines, and the additional content is part of what makes the Asian Games truly Asian.

The non-Olympic sports on display in South Korea include not only cricket and the popular martial art of karate, but also two sports that have yet to make any appreciable dent in the Western consciousness: kabaddi and sepaktakraw.

Interessante esse perfil do The New York Times sobre o pitcher do New York Yankees, Masahiro Tanaka

Tanaka comes from Itami, near Osaka, in western Japan. But he chose to play baseball at a high school in the nation’s far north, 900 miles away. The field froze during the winter months, and suffering the numbing cold was among the ordeals meant to build an athlete’s stalwart character. The boys stamped on the persisting snow, attempting to level the slippery surface for a truer roll of ground balls.
 
Sobre o Koshien
 
Every young ballplayer shared a dream, to compete in the national high school tournament, known to most as the Koshien, an event in Japan as compelling as March Madness, as consequential as the World Series. Each August, 49 regional champions vie in the single-elimination tourney. Each game is nationally televised. The best players are plucked from obscurity and elevated to celebrity, as famous as any movie star.
 
Descrição do principal rival nos tempos de colegial, Yuki Saito
 
With the temperature on the field sometimes climbing above 100 degrees, Saito had the habit of pulling a folded blue hankie from his pocket to pat the sweat off his face. He was affectionately nicknamed the Handkerchief Prince.
