Posted in: Miranda Kerr’s photo shoot for Vogue Japan stirs up controversy See in context

So basically, according to the non Japanese commentators here, its OK to have a non Japanese person in traditional Japanese clothing to celebrate the anniversary of Vogue magazine in Japan. It's like having an asian headlining an All American (trademark) event... oh wait, that never happens

Posted in: Hands off our heritage: some wary of China's reach See in context

The 24-hour news channels descended on the village, and the national newspapers wrote up full-page stories chronicling the loss of a piece of France to “le Chinois,” French for a Chinese person.

Ng is actually from Hong Kong and works in Macau. While both are Chinese territories, their economies are measured separately from China’s, so his vineyard purchase wouldn’t be included in China’s overseas investment.

In some ways, China has become a savior for some French vineyards, although few in France are willing to say that out loud. China is now a major buyer of wine, picking up the slack as sales to other countries slip. Indeed, China has become Bordeaux’s largest export market.

========== This is the problem with white-western media in general; "the Chinese" seem to encompass everyone of ethnic Chinese origin (imagine if Americans was used to refer to all whites)...and the double standards, to criticise the "bad" (takeovers - even though it has been occurring on Chinese companies/land for decades) - whilst downplaying the benefits (increased sales of their products).
