Debate: Treat Terrorists Like Enemy Combatants, Not Criminals

13 Jun

While I was in China, through Bloomberg News, I was introduced to Intelligence Squared…a debate program. The topic for the debate that night was “Treat Terrorists Like Enemy Combatants, Not Criminals” and was a re-broadcast from 2009. It took me a good bit of time to track down, but it was an amazing show, and worth the time to watch. There is a lot of knowledge on the panel debating both sides. Enjoy!

Guangzhou 2012 – Timelapse

26 Nov

The following video content, captured and produced by Zweizwei, is nothing short of phenomenal, and pairs extremely well with Passion Pit’s Swimming in the flood.  Zweizwei covered three cities in this video: Guangzhou, Shangai, and Shenzhen. Truth be told, this video left me excited about the colorful nightlife that I hope to encounter in Shanghai . Counting the days til my trip! Enjoy!

Marriage Corner

19 Nov

In Shanghai, China, thousands of anxious parents congregate every Sunday morning attempting to  find their sons and daughters a suitable partner for marriage.  Maybe I should add this to my list of places to visit on my trip!?!?

 

Shanghai Timelapse

12 Nov

As I have mentioned in the past…

1.) I am super blessed to have the opportunity to go to China this upcoming Spring.

2.) I want to find more interesting TCM relevant material on China, Beijing, and Shanghai and post said material here.

This is one of of those pieces of material I thought fit the bill. It is a somewhat choppy timelapse compared to the ones I have posted in the past. Choppy in respects to the way it was created and the transitions between shots. However, there are some true highlights on this reel, and gave me an appreciation for the sights I will get to see come April 2013. Enjoy!
