The Communist Party wants to blame Hollywood and “loose women,” instead of acknowledging its own epidemic levels of sexual assault. October 25, , One Friday evening, I attended an English meetup at a local university, hoping to make some Chinese friends. The next day, one of them asked me to go swimming at a local hot springs with a group of his friends.
Origin of the ‘Made in The term ‘Made in Germany’ came into being based on a decision of the British Parliament which passed the Merchandise Act on August 23rd in order to protect the British market from German imports. This law required that all goods from Germany had to carry an unremovable mark which clearly stated ‘Made in Germany’. Today we of course know that the whole act backfired because what was originally intended as a branding mark finally became a free trademark and the epitome of a seal of quality or warranty for good value.
A few years later – especially after the revision of the US McKinley Tariff Act see below – manufacturers all over the world started to adapt this form of marking. McKinley Tariff Act 1: This law not only imposed the highest tariffs that the United States had ever placed on imports, it also demanded that all items imported to the US, regardless of country of origin, had to be marked as ‘FOREIGN’.
This act was revised in two main steps: The second step included the markings used by Japan and Czechoslovakia, as explained further below. That aside, hold in mind that markings with ‘FOREIGN’ were indeed officially dropped, however their use represented a perfectly legal possibility of avoiding a true country mark when the target country had outlawed the corresponding country of origin. People may instantly conclude that this regarded German items created during World War 2, but that was only rarely the case.
Instead of vanishing from sight, the ‘FOREIGN’ mark was actually used on and off ever since its introduction, with various countries either using it or allowing imports showing such a mark. For example, West German potteries during the early Mid-Century-Modern era actually marked ‘Foreign’ for export to countries like Hungary or Bulgaria as Western goods were not taken very well behind the Iron Curtain while the U.

China: Handsome foreigners could be spies
Probably India did not have a clear local name earlier because, like China , it seemed to be the principal portion of the entire world, and so simply the world itself. Sumeru or Meru , the only one inhabited with humans identical to us. The only question was how much of it was taken up by India. Indeed, India was once an island in the Mesozoic Ocean, but it moved north and collided with Asia.
In Chinese, we get various ways of referring to India. The modern form, , renders the name phonetically with characters of no particular semantic significance “print, stamp, or seal” and “a rule, law, measure, degree”.
Although some readers might miss it, I think those who read the blog very closely will notice that this British woman was dating a Chinese man only as a project in connection with writing a general column about interracial dating. She was just dating this man as one of many other tasks to write about her experiences.
My only guess is that she has also dated men of many other ethnicities, including non-Asians such as African-Americans and Latinos. I do oppose her post, or at least the implications from it, or how she characterized the date. Her use of sarcasm was mean-spirited. That said, you have to be fair and realize that if her description of the date is accurate, the man was unworthy.
Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by columnist Maureen Dowd of The New York Times  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian.
Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date. Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going.
If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart.

Expat Woman Laments Dating Scene in China: “Odds Are Simply Against Us”
A seafarers tale – an archaeological elucidation of a shipwreck By Sten Sjostrand Dreary weather and intermittent rain has led to a dramatic drop in temperature over the last few days and then, just as the rain finally stopped, a cold wind began to blow from the north. It whipped up high waves and enormous swells that broke repeatedly against the side of the ship giving the deck, and everyone on it, a good showering.
It was unbearably cold, wet and miserable. Captain Heng Tai dexterously managed to avoid getting any salt water in his face as he crouched and turned with every hit. He was an experienced captain who had sailed this route many times before, but never so late in the season. The best time for the voyage was December when the northeast monsoon winds guaranteed a fair and safe passage all the way down the South China Sea.
Most dates in the inscriptions are given as Chinese cyclical dates which are repeated every 60th years.
