HG WELLS (1897): THE CRYSTAL EGG (21.11.2022)

There was, until a year ago, a little and very grimy-looking shop near Seven Dials, over which, in weather-worn yellow lettering, the name of “C. Cave, Naturalist and Dealer in Antiquities,” was inscribed. The contents of its window were curiously variegated. They comprised some elephant tusks and an imperfect set of chessmen, beads and weapons, a box of eyes, two skulls of tigers and one human, several moth-eaten stuffed monkeys (one holding a lamp), an old-fashioned cabinet, a flyblown ostrich egg or so, some fishing-tackle, and an extraordinarily dirty, empty glass fish-tank. There was also, at the moment the story begins, a mass of crystal, worked into the shape of an egg and brilliantly polished. And at that two people, who stood outside the window, were looking, one of them a tall, thin clergyman, the other a black-bearded young man of dusky complexion and unobtrusive costume. The dusky young man spoke with eager gesticulation, and seemed anxious for his companion to purchase the article.

China: Hong Kong to Align its Policies with National Strategies! (21.10.2022)

Determined to tackle deep-seated land and housing issues, Lee called for building 30,000 new public housing units, increasing the city’s public housing supply by about 50 percent in the next five years.

The government will also shorten the waiting time for public housing from six to 4.5 years, and cut the time for turning “primitive land “into “spade-ready sites” by one-third to half, Lee said.

His policy address also announced measures to stimulate the local economy, propel science and technological advancement, drive cultural and art development and better promote Hong Kong’s advantages to the international community.

Trump Administration Interfered with Federal Response to COVID-19: Congressional Report! (18.10.2022)

“This prioritization of politics, contempt for science, and refusal to follow the advice of public health experts harmed the nation’s ability to respond effectively to the coronavirus crisis and put Americans at risk,” Clyburn alleged.

The investigation uncovered that Trump’s appointees sought to influence CDC’s scientific reports — attempting to change the publication process, manipulate the content, or block the dissemination of at least 19 different reports that they deemed to be politically harmful to the administration.

The subcommittee has been investigating the Trump administration’s “political interference” across the federal government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic since June 2020.

Communist Parties from Around World Laud 20th CPC Congress – UK Not Mentioned! (17.10.2022)

Israel and the UK NOT mentioned – but ‘Palestine’ and ‘US’ are mentioned! There is no reason ‘why’ White (European) Communist Parties should be listed above Communist Parties a) representing non-White people, and/or b) Communist Parties representing non-White people that already have control of the ‘means of production’ and administer control of the socio-economic forces operating throughout their respective countries! Places like Laos, the DPRK and the many African countries are much more important than the UK, US and Israel, etc!

World Insights: China’s Sci-Tech Progress Not to be Hammered by Technology Blockade! (14.10.2022)

Up to now, China has established a sci-tech cooperation relationship with more than 160 countries and regions, and joined more than 200 international organizations and multilateral mechanisms.

Thanks to its greater focus on independent innovation and international cooperation, China moved up to the 11th place in the 2022 Global Innovation Index (GII) and firmly remains the only middle-income economy in the top 30, showed the latest ranking published by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

“China’s growth (in GII ranking) from 34th ten years ago to 11th (in 2022) … is really spectacular. The close attention paid by the government and the country to innovation as an engine of growth is paying off,” WIPO Director General Daren Tang said at the press launch of GII 2022.

“China nurtures its innovation ecosystem in a holistic, comprehensive manner,” he said.
