    A nosy co-worker reading my screen over my shoulder was shocked that I had 12,457 unread emails. I told him: “The intelligence agencies read our emails these days. Why duplicate the work?” He warned me that if I let other people read my emails, someone would steal my identity. Let them.

    I have made frequent trips to Cambodia from New Zealand over the last few years, which usually means transiting overnight in either Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur. The international airports in both cities are a good hour’s drive from their city centres, which is the last thing you feel like doing when arriving late at night and are leaving the next morning. It’s much more sensible to stay somewhere near the airport. You save money on taxi fares and accommodation charges, and you get to sleep in longer I arrived at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhimi Airport late in the evening. I had booked…

    I recently read a fascinating article called How bilingualism affects children’s beliefs, which details some findings from researchers in developmental psychology at Concordia University in Montreal. The idea behind the experiment is to see what qualities kids see as innate. Is the language that a person speaks innate, or is it learned? Is the sound that an animal makes innate, or is it learned? The implications could be quite profound. I quote the final four paragraphs here: “Both monolinguals and second language learners showed some errors in their thinking, but each group made…

    The idea of talking to Chinese girls is quite intimidating for many Western guys.  The Chinese culture seems so different from Western culture; it can be easy to inadvertently offend a Chinese girl, even when attempting to compliment her.  Learning how to compliment a Chinese girl in a way that doesn’t offend her can be your first step in persuading her to let you take her on a date, or even starting a relationship.  Let’s talk about how to compliment a Chinese girl in the right way.

    Three people have died in the Australian state of New South Wales as a storm with wind speeds of up to 85 m.p.h. continues to batter the country’s east coast. Police are investigating how the two men and one woman perished, but reports suggest they were trapped in their house in the town of Dungog, north of Sydney, by a flash flood, reports the BBC. Footage from YouTube user benmillington18 appears to show entire houses in Dungog, which experienced 312 mm of rain in just 24 hours, being swept away by the floodwater.

    India’s perennially tumultuous Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) found itself embroiled in controversy yet again this week, expelling four members including two co-founders late Monday night. The populist anticorruption party said in a statement that founding members Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav had been ejected for “gross indiscipline and antiparty activities,” the BBC reported. Two other senior politicians, Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha, were also banned. The AAP, created on the back of a path-breaking national movement against graft in government, has swung between dramatic highs…

    (CAIRO) — An Egyptian criminal court has sentenced ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi to 20 years in prison over the killing of protesters in 2012, the first verdict to be issued against the country’s first elected leader. The Cairo Criminal Court issued the verdict Tuesday as Morsi and other defendants in the case stood in a soundproof glass cage inside a makeshift courtroom at Egypt’s national police academy. The case stems from violence outside the presidential palace in December 2012. Morsi’s supporters attacked opposition protesters, sparking clashes that…

  • China Contract Signing Formalities: You Are Not In Kansas Anymore

    <a href=''>China Law Blog</a>
    20 Apr 2015 | 9:03 am
    Contracts in China are more formal than contracts here. This is particularly true with how they should be signed. When we draft a contract between an American client and a Chinese company, we instruct our client on what it should do to ensure a proper signing by its Chinese counterpart. This instruction is usually along the lines set forth below.   You must ensure that your contract is properly executed by the Chinese company with which you are contracting. It should be with a duly formed Chinese company and signed by the legal representative of that Chinese company. The name and address of…
  • Terminating China Employees: The Basics

    17 Apr 2015 | 2:46 pm
    Under China’s labor laws, terminating a China employee who has completed his or her probation period is virtually never easy. Termination usually requires good cause and a severance payment. Most importantly a China employer must be able to show that any unilateral termination was based on statutory grounds. In this post, I lay out some basic rules on terminating the labor contract with your China employees. Note that “China employees” essentially means any employee who works for your China-based company, whether that employee is actually a Chinese citizen or not.   The PRC…

    China Cloud Computing Laws Internet software business is rapidly moving to the cloud. So far, however, the Chinese government seems to be taking the lead from the Rolling Stones: the message is “Hey! You! Get off of my cloud.” The PRC wants to run its own private cloud, and no foreigners need apply. The primary issue for Internet business in China is that all commercial Internet businesses require the website owner acquire a commercial ICP (Internet Content Provider) license. This means that in addition to traditional e-commerce websites, cloud computing, software as a service…

    For years, China has featured prominently in the US Department of Justice’s investigations under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA. That’s not news to the readers of this blog, who can refresh their memories here, here and definitely here. But as a colleague recently reminded me, there is a big difference between settling an FCPA case, and actually having to investigate it—especially in China. This is a distinction that too few lawyers appreciate, but they should. Should you cooperate with a DOJ FCPA investigation involving your China operations? To make sense of this…

    We often think of “linguistic diversity” referring to the existence of minority languages in an area. But it can also refer to the varying dialects of a region, which in China would include topolects, AKA . When you throw various forms of language together in a single geographical area, they don’t stay distinct; they bleed into each other in interesting ways. Here are a few anecdotes about that, and what we’re potentially losing when a large region’s language becomes one shade of plain vanilla.

John Chambers, CEO of Cisco, gave a keynote to a packed house predicting that there would be 50 billion connected devices by 2020, while  Sara Silverman starred in a Cisco video offering a peek into the brave new world enabled by the Internet of Things. For all the talk, the installed base of connected devices has grown more slowly than Chambers predicted.

    As we head into the new year’s eve 2014, I am feeling good about my email for the first time in years. Thanks to friendly advice from Esther Dyson, I have managed to avoid declaring email bankruptcy and reached an empty inbox. Email Bankruptcy, for those fortunate who may be unaware of the meaning, is when your email inbox becomes so overwhelmed that you simply delete everything in your inbox and declare all emails void unless sent again. One source of the problem is Sp**, others include too many newsletters, both solicited and unsolicited. I first covered this topic in 2004, when Bill…

Rather than the home of cantankerous editors, I now look at newsrooms from the perspective of how brands operate in the world of social. As the barriers to distributing content and creating a media property have dropped, many brands have been keen to create their own publishing operations. But publishing, many companies discover, is not easy. In addition to the traditional challenges, the nature of publishing itself is changing. Beyond the shift in tools and audience behavior, content and connection, rather than simple…

Sometimes I have this homesickness for places in Yantai and Beijing, even though I’m pretty sure that with pace of change in China, those spots are completely different now. I struggled with my Mandarin pretty much every day I was there. The Chinese will give any attempt beyond a toneless knee how a great deal of praise, but let’s be honest, my Mandarin is pretty rough.

For the older kids, sometimes they get a detailed discussion of how good writers choose words to have meaning for the reader, so we have to choose words that are meaningful to the reader. The reader of these words will be the student in the future, and their programming teacher, and while we have the technical ability to put statements in any order and name groups and variables anything we want, future-student will thank you for making it logical and simple.

The guard tower was vacant and not a single park ranger was in sight. My family and a couple friends had decided to make our first visit to this park an hour outside of Urumqi, none of us quite sure what to expect. Previously, the zoo in Urumqi had been located in the south of town until September 2005 when it was moved to a massive tract of land at the foot of the Tianshan range. The move was meant to give the animals more space to roam and…

    Thirty-five kilometers south of Urumqi is the geographic center of Asia. With the long winter coming to a close in Xinjiang, a couple of friends of mine decided to enjoy the warmer temperatures by going cycling with the geographic center as our destination. As the distance there and back extends to over 70 kilometers, naturally a large mountain bike with over twenty speeds and giant tires would be the ideal choice for the journey. However, the only bike I managed to get my hands on was a small flipable roadster with a maximum of six speeds. Doubt filled my mind whether the bike would survive…

While Xinjiang’s weather still plays an active role in what you can and cannot see, a lot has changed over the past decade in terms of winter tourism options in Xinjiang. Not only is it possible to experience this different aspect of Xinjiang travel, it can prove to be a remarkable experience you won’t easily forget. I often get questions…

We stayed at a lovely guest house near the Kampot river called Mea Culpa. As part of their restaurant they produced gourmet pizzas…

This report examines some of the unique attributes of China debt investing, especially its fast-growing high-yield “non bank” shadow banking sector. Do the high yields adequately price in risk? Is this an investment class international investors should consider? Can the regulatory Great Wall be scaled to get dollars legally in and out for lending in China? Little has been written in English about China’s huge high-yield…
  • Treating the Cancer of High Interest Rates in China — Caijing Magazine commentary

    admin
    31 Mar 2015 | 2:53 am
    The cost of borrowing money is a huge and growing burden for most companies and municipal governments in China. But, it is also the most attractive untapped large investment opportunity in China for foreign institutional investors. This is the broad outline of the Chinese-language essay published in this week’s Caijing Magazine, among China’s most well-read business publications. The authors are me and Dr. Yansong Wang, China First Capital’s Chief Operating Officer. Foreign investors and asset managers have mainly been kept out of China’s lucrative lending market, one reason…
  • Blackrock, Fidelity and others learn a painful lesson about China debt pricing

    22 Mar 2015 | 7:55 pm
    For all the media ink spilled, including by Reuters’ excellent Asia fixed income correspondent Umesh Desai, you’d think the ongoing fight in Hong Kong between severely-troubled Chinese real estate developer Kaisa Group and its creditors was the biggest, nastiest, most portentous blood feud the capital markets have ever seen. It’s none of that. It’s a reasonably small deal ($2.5 billion in total Hong Kong bond debt that may prove worthless) involving a Chinese company of no great significance and a group of unnamed bond-holders who are screaming bloody murder about being asked to…
  • China’s loan shark economy — Nikkei Asian Review

    admin
    11 Mar 2015 | 5:23 am
    China’s loan shark economy What’s ailing China? Explanations aren’t hard to come by: slowing growth, bloated and inefficient state-owned enterprises, and a ferocious anti-corruption campaign that seems to take precedence over needed economic reforms. Yet for all that, there is probably no bigger, more detrimental, disruptive or overlooked problem in China’s economy than the high cost of borrowing money. Real interest rates on collateralized loans for most companies, especially in the private sector where most of the best Chinese companies can be found, are rarely below…

    IMO, adventure eating isn’t any fun by yourself. And it’s not any interesting if the food isn’t “real” local food, meaning if it’s something locals made up just to freak out tourists but don’t actually eat themselves then I’ll pass. Unless it looks tasty. But I’ve seen (chicken fetus eggs) and starfish (and cicadas and silkworm chrysalises) in normal Chinese settings far removed from any tourism. I pass by piles of them every week in Qingdao. So when some undauntable foreign friends from Kunming visited us last week, it was the perfect…

    China has a long History and a culture rich of metaphors and symbols.  The Chinese language is known for its characters that can be interpreted in a poetic or amusing way to memorize them. Let’s give some examples that demonstrate that learning chinese can be a delight: a “heart” (xīn) caught in a “door” (mén) means to be “bored” (mèn). A popular funny story says that a woman (nǚ), because she is “muddled” (hūn), “get married” (hūn). The Chinese language is also known for its 4 tonal intonations with homophones that can give rise to countless play on words…

    In recent years, relationships between Chinese women and Western men have become increasingly common. Today, you can’t help but notice mixed race couples almost everywhere when you are in China or other Asian counties.  It may seem old-fashioned, but it wasn’t long ago that the families of some Chinese girls actually forbade their daughters to talk to, never mind get involved with, a man not of their own ethnicity. It is obvious that this thinking has changed in many Chinese families.  Now, Chinese women are dating and marrying foreign men in ever greater numbers.  Which leads us to…

    There are many Chinese people who now live in the U.S., Canada, and many other countries, and China is becoming a powerful economic force in the world today.  For this reason, learning Chinese  is becoming increasingly important and a popular foreign language to study in high schools and universities. If you’re thinking of studying Chinese, you may be contemplating whether it would be better to learn Mandarin  or Cantonese. With about 1.2 billion speakers, Chinese is more widely spoken than any other language in the world.  However, to think of Chinese as a language is a bit of a…

    7 Apr 2015 | 2:41 am
    Thế nào là nghèo ở Việt Nam? Khi tôi lớn lên ở Hà Nội trong những năm cuối thập kỷ 1980, có thể thấy cái nghèo ở khắp mọi nơi. Hầu hết người dân Việt Nam khi đó hẳn là sống ở mức dưới chuẩn nghèo quốc tế (1,25 đô-la một ngày). Bởi lẽ vào thời gian đó chưa có các cuộc khảo sát mức sống để đo lường nghèo nên cũng không có một cách thức rõ ràng để xác định như thế nào là nghèo. Người giàu thời đó là người nào trong nhà có xe máy hay TV, còn người…
  • How We Measure Poverty in Vietnam

    Linh Hoang Vu
    7 Apr 2015 | 2:29 am
    What does it mean to be poor in Vietnam? When I grew up in Hanoi in the late 80s, poverty was all around. Most of the population then was living under the international poverty line ($1.25 per day). Because there were no living standard surveys to measure poverty, there was no clear indication of what it meant to be poor. A rich person at that time was someone with either a motorbike or a television set, while a poor one was a street beggar or someone who did not have enough rice to eat.  In the earliest survey conducted in 1992 and 1993, about 64% of the population was poor by the…

But it was a chance conversation with a fellow foreigner that drove home just how dramatic those changes have been. Mongolia's black market in 1994 photo: James H.

    From time to time a client asks us to go and check a supplier that is clearly putting out a scam. We did just this a few days ago, and I am reproducing some elements below (with permission from the client). How does it work? Here is an extract from the scammer’s email: Genuine Apple, Sony, or Microsoft products, sold from China directly to European or American customers? Totally illegal. This case was interesting because we observed the way the scammer operates: They send a real sample at the real market price to confirm product quality. This way, the deal looks like a great…
  • Build Of Pre-Production Tooling – Part 11

    Renaud Anjoran
    16 Apr 2015 | 8:57 am
    In many cases, manufacturing a new product necessitates the preparation of custom tooling. This is an important step. The output from the design reviews should include a data pack with 3D CAD files and the relevant technical information for each part so that the Chinese supplier can produce tooling that will be able to produce production intent parts. For example, if we consider a product that has injection molded components, there are a number of different approaches to achieving pre-production parts; the direction you opt for will partly be driven by your budget. If you are looking to…

    After building a prototype and subjecting it to functional tests, you will likely need to make revisions from both a functional stand point in order to ensure the product actually meets the business goals as well as from a product specification stand point, which could include cosmetic changes like shape, size, color, and finish. An iterative cycle would include a design review where all the test data are presented and analyzed so that changes can be suggested and planned, another prototype built (which could just be a sub-section or the whole product, depending on the change required),…

    Once you have built a prototype, it is a good idea to subject it to functional tests. This is what we cover in this part of our series on new product development. Wikipedia defines a physical test as: ‘a qualitative or quantitative procedure that consists of determination of one or more characteristics of a given product, process or service according to a specified procedure. Often this is part of an experiment’. Basically, once you have produced your working prototype you need to test it against the product specification in order to verify that the design meets and can deliver…

    Not long ago, a white friend of mine moved back to America with her Chinese husband. They were happy with their decision to return to America, but it also meant living with her parents for a period of time. Which wasn’t easy…and lead to some uncomfortable conversations. She confessed that her mother (who she said wasn’t the most pleasant person to begin with) wasn’t thrilled that she hadn’t chosen an “easier life.”In other words, the fact that this friend had chosen to marry a Chinese man – instead of, say, one of the white guys she used to date at university.Ugh.

    If there are things impressed upon modern Western Liberal Democracy, there are 2 arguably essential things claimed:  Free speech and Rule of Law.  Indeed, “free media” in the West touts these 2 things often enough, and the Courts of the West equally pay tribute to these 2 things often enough. Yet, underneath, the reality is a strange contradiction of these 2 things butting against each other in interests, and often require delicate balancing depending on where. There are in fact, 2 different kinds of “courts” in the West:  The Court of media/public opinion, and the…

    Recently there is some controversy of Xi’s promotion of Maoist’s old Ye’nan spirit, not only attacking the corruption, but worries of the return of leftist policies of “Cultural Revolution”. Of course corruption cannot be isolated from economic, political, and cultural norms in society, and some should worry it might spread beyond the tigers and fliers to them. The recent success and popularity of Movie like “Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy”, one of the old standard from CR era, and the TV series “Ordinary World” speak volumes of…

To answer it simply:  We all discriminate.  We like or dislike, we prefer or avoid, we aspire or disincline.  Good or evil, every time we make the slightest choice between two…

Though its English name, Yellow Croaker Not Fish, sounds weird (and it's missing a verb), they take food very seriously.    What's On The Menu   The menu has so many choices that it took us a long time to decide what to order.

    Not long ago, a white friend of mine moved back to America with her Chinese husband. They were happy with their decision to return to America, but it also meant living with her parents for a period of time. Which wasn’t easy…and lead to some uncomfortable conversations. She confessed that her mother (who she said wasn’t the most pleasant person to begin with) wasn’t thrilled that she hadn’t chosen an “easier life.”In other words, the fact that this friend had chosen to marry a Chinese man – instead of, say, one of the white guys she used to date at university.Ugh.

The result is a domestic product that they argue is fresher, healthier, and more delicious than anything else you can find in China.

    Complement is a typical element in Chinese language. It usually goes after a verb or an adjective to describe the result, degree, direction, possibility, state, quantity or duration of an action. My second secret focuses on the COMPLEMENT OF DURATION, which indicates how long an action or a state lasts. For example: I slept for six hours last night.

    Contracts in China are more formal than contracts here. This is particularly true with how they should be signed. When we draft a contract between an American client and a Chinese company, we instruct our client on what it should do to ensure a proper signing by its Chinese counterpart. This instruction is usually along the lines set forth below.   You must ensure that your contract is properly executed by the Chinese company with which you are contracting. It should be with a duly formed Chinese company and signed by the legal representative of that Chinese company. The name and address of…

    14 Apr 2015 | 5:36 am
    China Cloud Computing Laws Internet software business is rapidly moving to the cloud. So far, however, the Chinese government seems to be taking the lead from the Rolling Stones: the message is “Hey! You! Get off of my cloud.” The PRC wants to run its own private cloud, and no foreigners need apply. The primary issue for Internet business in China is that all commercial Internet businesses require the website owner acquire a commercial ICP (Internet Content Provider) license. This means that in addition to traditional e-commerce websites, cloud computing, software as a service…

    12 Apr 2015 | 4:17 pm
      How to protect your IP when doing a China joint venture Last month I wrote a post entitled, How To Give Away Your IP In China, explaining how foreign companies so often “gift” their intellectual property to their Chinese manufacturers by not initially making clear in a Chinese language contract who will own the intellectual property that will be developed jointly by the Chinese manufacturer and the Western company. Since foreign companies seem so eager foreign to give away their intellectual property to their Chinese competitors, I thought I would continue my series on…

    For years, China has featured prominently in the US Department of Justice’s investigations under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA. That’s not news to the readers of this blog, who can refresh their memories here, here and definitely here. But as a colleague recently reminded me, there is a big difference between settling an FCPA case, and actually having to investigate it—especially in China. This is a distinction that too few lawyers appreciate, but they should. Should you cooperate with a DOJ FCPA investigation involving your China operations? To make sense of this…
