Comments regarding hearings of the Pasadena Human Relations Commission on Rose Parade Float commemorating Beijing Olympics

By Prof. Kwan M Chan (CSA Board Director)


A final hearing by the Human Relations Commission was held on October 15, 2007 at Pasadena. This was attended by Sue Zhang, Dr. and Mrs. May Hsu, Prof. and Mrs. Kwan Chan and other members of the Roundtable of Southern California Chinese American Organizations (RSCCAO) and the Caltech Chinese Student Association (Caltech C), the Chinese Scholars Association (CSA) and other individuals.


An open letter from the Caltech C pointed out that the opposition group has published a report of the meeting in its mouthpiece newspaper as well on its website, in which appeared the following statement, “The newly elected Commissioner Felipe Infante told the reporters after the meeting that he understood why these Chinese students were supportive of the Beijing Olympics. He believed that since most of them were financially supported by the Chinese government, they didn’t want to offend it.  However, this is contradictory to the fact that the predominant students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels receive full financial support from the institute in the form of scholarships, and research and teaching assistants, which can be verified by the Caltech Financial Aid Office. For the record, all students did express their minds freely in the meeting.”


“The Commission has recognized that the City of Pasadena is a separate legal entity from the Tournament of Roses and has no formal role in the float approval process. The Commission acknowledges the tremendous effort of the Tournament of Roses in organizing and hosting the Rose Parade each year. The parade greatly benefits Pasadena and is enjoyed by many people throughout the world. The Commission understands the rational of the float sponsors and the Tournament of Roses for choosing to have a float in the 2008 Rose parade that commemorates the 2008 Beijing Olympics. There is also a tradition of Rose Parade floats commemorating the Olympics. The International Olympic Committee has in fact granted the right to hold the Olympic Games to Beijing, China. In United States and elsewhere in the world there is a tremendous support from the community for the above events. The economic and social developments in China have made the hosting of the Beijing Olympics feasible.”


However, the Commission has miss-interpreted the majority of the float supporters on human rights issue. Dr. Chan pointed out in the hearings that all float supporters have engaged in improving the human right conditions in China by the improvement of living conditions of ordinary people, by providing education resources to the communities and, last but not the least, by promoting cultural or scientific exchanges. “The Commission does not intend to downplay the importance of this benefit to the human right conditions in China. There were four to five speakers, who publicly supported the float but also expressed concern about human rights issues in China and elsewhere. These included Mayor Bogaard, Mr. Lamson, Ms. Chen, and a few other individuals. Their position, explicitly or implicitly, was that keeping communication channels and interactions open between the United States and China is more likely to lead to the progressive development of China, and that the Beijing Olympics was part of this process.”     


 The statement in the report that “The Commission does not have resources to investigate the accuracy of the statements made to the Commission about the particular human rights violations” is also somewhat misleading. Prof. Chan pointed out that the Commission should not have any problem if they have an open mind to study the reports issued by those “credible private organizations and governmental agencies about the improvements in human rights in China”. Actually the Commission should be able to check the resources of the opposition groups, which include the daily free mouthpiece newspaper and TV station. The backgrounds of the speakers from the opposition group can also be easily verified.


Finally in the report that “The Commissions perceives that all of the parties and individuals involved, including the protestors, are very interested in the progressive development of China and very proud of the ability of China to be able to host the Olympics.”


The Commissions recommended a dialogue among all parties involved be established. Any concerns or discussion shall be communicated in appropriate manner to the Xicheng District of Beijing, the sister city of Pasadena.


At the end of the hearing, the supporting group had a friendly exchange with the members of the Commission. Ms Sue Zhang invited the Commission to participate future activities of the Beijing Rose Parade events. Excerpts from documents in the hearing are marked with quotation.

UCR Partners with Chinese University to Address China’s Environmental Problems

Collaborative research activities on preventing ecological degradation to benefit California also

RIVERSIDE, Calif. – According to the World Bank, China has one of the worst pollution problems on the planet, and is second only to the United States in emissions of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas linked to global warming. China is also home to 20 of the world’s 30 most air-polluted cities.

To address China’s increasing environmental challenges, such as smog, acid rain and water pollution, scientists at UC Riverside and China Agricultural University (CAU) have teamed up to launch a new center: the CAU-UCR International Center for Ecology and Sustainability.

Located in Beijing, China, the center will attempt to solve environmental and agricultural problems, restore damaged ecosystems, and ensure food safety – concerns common not just to China and Southern California but the world at large.

“This center brings together some of the leading researchers at UCR with colleagues at CAU, the premier agricultural university in China, to solve what is being recognized as the major challenge of the 21st century,” said Charles Louis, vice chancellor for research at UCR. “The proposed bidirectional exchanges of faculty and students will enhance both research and partnerships between California and China.”

Besides doing collaborative research on key ecological and sustainable development issues, the center will promote public awareness of these issues and advise policy-makers at the local, regional, federal and global levels on important questions in ecosystem management.

“The issues of ecology and sustainability facing China today are massive and, in many cases, mirror those faced by California,” said Bai-lian (Larry) Li, a professor of ecology in UCR’s Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, who joins Wenliang Wu, the chief scientist of the National Agroecology Program and provost at CAU, in co-directing the center. “The center will utilize the combined strengths of UCR and CAU in ecology, agriculture and sustainability research to find viable and effective solutions to environmental problems.”

The center’s six initial research areas of focus are: (1) ecosystem complexity and regional sustainability; (2) management and treatment of agricultural nonpoint (indirect) pollution; (3) conservative farming and ecological restoration; (4) effective use of agricultural wastes and “circulative agriculture” (agricultural systems that recycle materials/resources); (5) environmental security and food safety; and (6) microbial ecology and molecular ecology.

“These initial research foci reflect many of the hot-button topics that the faculty and researchers in the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences are working on right now,” said Donald Cooksey, interim dean of the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences. “Ecological issues today transcend national or even crop-level boundaries – we all have similar sustainability problems, whether we’re growing rice or oranges.”

Currently, the center includes six laboratories in China as well as two experimental stations, also in China, that are engaged in intensive agro-ecosystems and grassland ecosystems studies.

CAU initially plans to allocate about five of its graduate students to the new center. Thereafter it will offer research opportunities to visiting UCR faculty and students.

In addition, Chinese institutions other than CAU will participate in the center’s research activities. The center also plans to include other international members in upcoming years.

“We will soon have other Asian colleagues, as well as European researchers at the center,” Li said. “German, Italian and Dutch scientists have already expressed an interest in joining our efforts.”

Each year, the center will host an annual international forum on the key issues related to ecology and sustainability, and arrange publication of the conference proceedings.

Plans are underway at UCR to establish an office for coordinating the center’s collaborative efforts, including the exchange of research and education programs between UCR and CAU.

“We are extremely pleased to be a part of this effort to finding solutions to an enormous problem,” Louis said. “We fully expect the research emerging from this center to benefit not only China and California but also the international community.”

Net Forum -学者论坛: 如何提高创新能力? (邓伟志)










第三,要用创新的规律指导创新。创新是高难度的工作。创新有自己特殊的规律。创新与一般不同的是,可以订计划,又难以订计划。创新是寻找必然,有时又会出在偶然。创新不大可能以年计,更不大可能跟着节日转。创新的道路是用“失败牌”的砖头铺出来的。假如一万人有创新愿望,可是,能够提出几种创新方案的不会超过10%;在提出创新方案的人当中,最后能拿出创新成果的可能不到1%。古人说: “失败是成功之母”。这话从根本上说,没错。从具体上说,从短时间看,这“母”多有不孕不育的时候。因此,这就要求管理者要宽容创新中的失败,甚至要为创新中的错误争一席之地。如果一见失败就下马,一听错误就封杀,永远不会有创新。因此,创新包括管理创新、制度创新、理论创新。只有全方位创新才能保住一方的创新。一方接一方地创新了,才是焕然一新。创新需要理论指导。理论不创新难以指导创新。“以其昏昏”如何“使人昭昭”?理论创新是全面的,包括在理论观点上创新,在理论体系上创新,还要在理论方法上创新。上下一致是指原则一致。在具体理念方面,老是“上下一般粗”,这不是对上的尊重。创新是要尽量做到人云亦云不用, 老生常谈不谈。








Finding of Dr.Qiang Lu (吕倩教授UCLA): Staying positive may help kids deal with pain

Reuters Health

Thursday, October 11, 2007

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - It may be mind over matter when it comes to children's ability to cope with pain, a study suggests.

Researchers found that children and teenagers who said they typically dealt with pain through positive thinking were able to better tolerate uncomfortable circumstances, like pressure on a finger or heat against their skin.

Those who typically turned to less-positive coping strategies -- like worrying inwardly or to someone else -- had less pain tolerance. [abs & p 711, par 4]

The findings, according to the study authors, suggest that teaching kids positive coping tactics could help them deal with short-term pain, including pain from injections or other medical procedures. [email]

Dr. Qian Lu and colleagues at the University of California Los Angeles report the findings in the Journal of Pain.

For their study, the researchers recruited 244 healthy children and teenagers between the ages of 8 and 18. They used a standard questionnaire to gauge the children's typical reactions to pain that lasted hours to days. [p 711, par 4]

Some of these reactions included positive thinking ("say to myself, things will be ok," for example); seeking emotional support ("let my feelings out to a friend"); internalizing/catastrophizing ("worry that I will always be in pain"); and finding a distraction ("do something fun").

The children then underwent three uncomfortable procedures to test their pain tolerance: one where pressure was applied to their fingers, and two where either heat and cold was applied to their skin. The researchers measured how long each child waited before moving away from the painful stimulus, then asked them to rate the intensity and "unpleasantness" of the sensation. [p 710]

In general, Lu's team found, children who typically used positive thinking or distractions to deal with pain had less discomfort during the study procedures than their peers did. The opposite was true of children who typically dealt with pain by internalizing/catastrophizing or by seeking emotional support. [abs]

"Children's ability to tolerate pain varies considerably," Lu told Reuters Health. "How they cope with pain may play a significant role in how much they can tolerate pain, and how they feel about the pain." [email]

Coping style, Lu explained, can affect people's anticipation of pain, or their perception of whether the pain is under their conscious control, for example.

"If a child copes with pain by focusing on how much the pain hurts, this will likely intensify their pain perception and the unpleasant feelings associated with pain, which is what we found in our study," Lu said.

All of this suggests that teaching children more-positive ways of coping might help them get through transient pain, according to the researchers. "We can help children go through medical procedures," Lu said, "by teaching them to reassure themselves, 'be strong,' 'everything will be ok,' and 'I can handle anything that happens'."

美國民主黨總統參選人喜萊莉:美中關係最重要  若當選將與北京合作

雅培 (Abbott) (NYSE: ABT) 上周宣布,該公司科學家率先發現了一種專有技術,這種技術將兩種或更多種單克隆抗體 (mAb) 的功能和特性結合進了一種分子實體,該分子實體被證實具有類似藥物的特性和制造可行性。這些被稱為對偶變量域 Ig (DVD-Ig(TM)) ( http://www.abbott.com/global/url/content/en_US/60.15:15/feature/Feature_0029.htm ) 的分子將使針對各種治療領域的多種疾病導致的分子的個體候選藥物的開發成為可能。


這項裡程碑式的研究於上周早些時候發表在《Nature Biotechnology》網絡版 ( http://www.nature.com/nbt/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nbt1345.html  ) 上,它展現了一個可能與癌癥、自身免疫疾病及其他疑難病癥有關的全新平台,在這些疾病中有多種疾病介體在產生作用。與利用一個 mAb 對單個標靶進行抑制相比,利用 DVD-Ig 類藥劑對多種標靶同時封鎖可能會提高功效。


設計了 DVD-Ig 分子並負責領導該研究小組的雅培科學家 Chengbin Wu 博士和 Tariq Ghayur 博士表示:“將兩種或更多種抗體的特性整合進一種藥物中對於尋求新一代生物療法的研究人員來說一直是項重大挑戰。雅培的方法在開發具有藥物特性和多種疾病介體靶向能力的單個分子實體方面非常通用且有效。對於其在多個治療領域開闢的藥物開發道路,我們感到非常振奮。” 合並兩種或更多種 mAb 的過程涉及分子生物技術的使用,如聚合 鏈反應 (PCR),以便連接兩種不同抗體的各區域(可變域),這兩種抗體針對因疾病引起的特種分子。由此產生的分子具有兩個不同的(雙的)可變域,每個域靶向因疾病引起的不同抗原。


用一種傳統的 mAb 僅應對一種疾病的功效是有限的,因為這種疾病可能會發展至多種程度。例如風濕性關節炎 (RA),不同的疾病介體(機理)可導致該疾病出現不同的癥狀,入炎癥、血管增生、關節翳的形成(肉芽組織層變厚)以及骨和軟骨的病損。因此,對風濕性關節炎的兩種或更多種病理進行靶定或許能比僅靶定一種病理收到更好的療效。

利用 DVD-Ig 技術,雅培的研究小組已經開發出了一種單一的候選藥物,該候選藥物可對多種疾病成分進行靶定,其中一種就是 TNF-alpha -- 關節炎中一種理想的標靶。有關該候選藥物的臨床前評估目前正在進行中。

mAb 和先前的開發多特性抗體努力相比,雅培的 DVD-Ig 方法具有明顯的技術、科學和藥物開發優勢。該方法可與任何一種抗體兼容,包括人源化 mAb、完全人源化 mAb 以及嵌合 mAb,並有可能從抗體延伸至受體蛋白和其他類似的分子。DVD-Ig 藥物可能還有更高的功效,因為他們靶向的是多種因病所致的分子,並可以應對多餘疾病過程,在該過程中,兩種不同的分子具有相同的疾病所致的影響。

雅培已經完成了 DVD-Ig 項目的技術驗證,該公司目前正在驗證用於該技術平台的工藝開發和制造。與此同時,雅培還已經就多種覆合藥物展開了臨床前工作。

雅培簡介 雅培是一家全球性、涉足廣泛的醫療保健公司,致力於發現、開發、生產和銷售醫藥和醫療產品,包括營養品、設備和診斷技術。該公司共有65,000名員工,其產品暢銷130多個國家。

1.       防御性与被动性。由于在各种暴力犯罪中都是歹徒去主动攻击受害者,因而受害者(即自卫者)只能被动地去反应去对付歹徒,而决没有先去攻击歹徒的事情发生。即使是自卫者在歹徒未尚攻击他们之前采取一些措施使自己的家变得更安全,那也是一种被动性防卫性的反应。这就决定了自卫防身者在与歹徒的较量中,歹徒永远都占有先机,而自卫者却总要被动防御,而一般被动防御者总是占劣势。


2.       不可预知性。自卫防身者与歹徒之间的较量是一场不对等、不公平的战争,受害者都在明处,而歹徒却是在暗处。人们不知道谁是歹徒、他们的攻击目标是谁、他们想干什么、处在何时何地如何作案,因而防范起来也是困难重重,这是自卫防身者的最大弱点。如2002年十月至十一月间在美国首都华盛顿发生的枪击案,及911恐怖攻击都是这场不对等战争的最有说明力的例证,如同在股票市场上的投资及预防地震,这种不可预知性极大地增加了自卫防身的困难。


3.       残酷性。当自卫者遭遇歹徒攻击时,其格斗往往残酷而惨烈。大部分罪犯都是阴险狡猾、心狠手辣、无法无天的冷血亡命之徒。他们什么都敢作、什么都敢干,刀枪棍棒、膝肘拳脚、砖头酒瓶,无所不用其极地达到他们的攻击目的,而自卫者一方亦是拼死反抗以保护自己的生命安全。双方在手段的应用上和格斗程度上都没有任何限制,这种战争的残酷程度可想而知。


4.       复杂性。自卫者要防范和对付各种各样的犯罪,各种各式的歹徒,千奇百怪的犯罪手法,及不可预测的时间地点。这好比一场战争,又好比一场体育比赛,双方的准备程度、智力水平、技术水平及身体条件以及特定的场合与具体情况都对胜负产生重大影响。歹徒无时不刻不在研究如何猎取目标以增加其胜算,而自卫防身者也在研究歹徒的招数以提高取胜的机率。情况之复杂,不可能靠一招一式就能取胜。自卫者不但要知道怎样防范,而且要会识别危险情况并迅速作出决定并采用合理措施以保护自己。







UCR joins in China venture

10:44 AM PDT on Wednesday, October 17, 2007

The Press-Enterprise

UC Riverside has partnered with China Agricultural University to launch a new center in Beijing to study ways to stem the country's growing environmental issues, officials announced Tuesday.

The new CAU-UCR International Center for Ecology and Sustainability will focus on pollution issues related to farming such as pesticide use, soil degradation and runoff that contaminates lakes, said Larry Li, a UCR ecology professor who will co-direct the center with a scientist from the Chinese university.

Li, who has worked at UCR since 2001 and is from central China, said the country's growing population and rapid pace of development -- similar, although on a larger scale, to what's happening in California and the Inland region -- has intensified the nation's environmental problems.

"The problem is huge. It's difficult to change overnight," Li said.

Li will spend some time in Beijing while remaining mostly at UCR to coordinate research efforts. Eventually, UCR faculty and students will be offered research opportunities there.

China's pollution problems have been highlighted by the upcoming 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. U.S. athletes may be housed outside the city to avoid being affected by the smog, officials have said. The country is also second behind the United States in emissions of carbon dioxide, a key contributor to global warming.

"We know environmental problems don't have borders; they influence the surrounding countries," Li said. "On a global scale, Americans, everyone has to deal with this."

First Monoclonal Targeting Drug for Liver Cancer

Iodine[131I] Metuximab, China’s first proprietary monoclonal antibody targeting drug granted with a national class I new drug certificate two year ago, has been put into clinical application in both Shanghai and Guangzhou.


In July and August 2007, Shanghai No. 10 People’s Hospital and Guangzhou PLA 458 Hospital has used the new therapy to treat advanced primary liver cancers. According to a briefing, the previous clinical trials have shown that the new therapy produces a fine therapeutic effect. In the clinical application, doctors directly inject the drug into the arteries that feed blood to liver cancers via a tube, which produces a strong kill to the cancerous cells. Doctors found that the therapy can easily lead to relieved symptoms, such as pains, fever, and abnormal body temperature. Doctors told reporters that population-based studies are needed in order to further confirm the therapeutic effects of the new therapy.


聯合國貿易暨發展會議(UNCTAD): 最佳投資地區   中国、印度排名最高  

聯合國貿易暨發展會議(UNCTAD)16日公布2007年全球投資報告指出,最吸引直接外資的投資地區,印度排名第二,僅次於中國,但排名在美國、俄羅斯和巴西之前。 「中央社」報告指出,在外國投資者的投資地區選擇上,選擇中國者佔52%,選擇印度者佔41%,美國、俄羅斯和巴西則分別為36%22%12% 身為開發中亞洲地區的主要直接外資來源,印度與中國正開始挑戰亞洲新興工業經濟體的主導地位,如香港、韓國、新加坡和台灣。 報告說,藉由印度與中國強勁的表現支撐,南亞、東亞和東南亞仍可能繼續維持快速的經濟成長。此外,由於印度、中國、印尼和越南等國家的發展基礎建設計劃,這些地區對「尋求效率」型的外資,將可能更具吸引力。 但據國際諮詢機構普華永道會計事務所16日公布的2007年全球經濟犯罪調查指出,盡管印度已成為全球投資者的新標的,但全球超過5400家接受調查的企業代表,有38%表示他們在過去兩年裏,被要求必須行賄才能取得在印度經營事業的許可。

More Progresses for HTSC Study (CAS)

In collaboration with a study team headed by P.C. Dai of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a research team, led by WEN Haihu of State Key Laboratory for Superconductivity, CAS Institute of Physics and Center for Condensed Matter, has made important progresses in understanding the high-temperature superconductor mechanism of PrLaCeCuO, and unveiled a linkage between spin fluctuation and high-temperature superconducting. The finding was published in a recent issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.


The team led by WEN Haihu has been working on the subject for some years, with a number of laudable results. For example, it has found that some high-temperature superconductors possess Fermi arc, which means they will leave a new energy gap on the surface of Fermi arc in a superconducting state. Its size reflects the scale of superconducting energy. This model has been reconfirmed by other technical means, and has become a hot spot for research. In the study, researchers selected a mixed superconductor of PrLaCeCuO. They obtained high quality superconducting data in the broad temperature area, and accurately worked out the evolution of condensed energy in the magnetic field. At the same time, its US collaborators have observed a resonance peak in a neutron scattering experiment, and found that it has a magnetic field suppression identical to the variation of condensed energy in the magnetic field. The condensed energy and resonance peak would simultaneously disappear, when the magnetic field was higher than the critical magnetic field. Instead, an antiferromagnetic ordering would appear. These findings have confirmed the fact that there is a close relationship between HTSC and magnetic intensity. In addition, researchers also found that the competition between superconducting and antiferromagnetic ordering would result in two different basic states. These findings will improve people’s understanding of HTSC.

中国大学不是"像官场"而是就是官场 (于立生)



  陈平原说:“我反对第一流学者当领导!”,并非新见,当年“非汉语语言学之父”李方桂曾对邀其担任所长的 “中央研究院”总干事傅斯年说:“我认为,研究人员是一等人才,教学人员是二等人才,当所长做官的是三等人才。”傅斯年听后立刻退后作揖;陈平原称:“中国大学的特点就是越来越像官场!”,也不够直截,中国大学不是“像官场”,而是本来就是官场!


  如不然,何来“副部级大学”、“正厅级大学”、“副厅级大学“之行政标签?如不然,何来“厅级干部一走廊,处级干部一礼堂,科级干部一操场”之怪诞现状?当年安徽大学校长刘文典纵拒不了蒋介石 “训话”于门外,亦可不安排“欢迎如仪”,——声称:“大学不是衙门!”;当年清华可以出学生“三赶校长”之壮举,而今哪来此等事?哪一个大学校长,不是一纸行政命令,高来高去?何干师生半点事?




“尊重知识,尊重人才。”“要反对不尊重知识分子的错误思想。”,——改革开放之初,1977年,邓小平提出此语迄今已三十年矣!我在一篇旧文中曾写到:“只有做到对于知识分子主体性的充分尊重,才是对知识分子真正的尊重。……学术领域的事,必须由知识分子说了算,知识分子基于科学精神的制度安排说了算”( 《学术水平如何,谁说了算》 2005921日《新京报》),而今日之大学中,本应为大学主体的教师、学生,却成附庸,却为“圈养”,这样的大学,如何不是官场?!


China releases space development plan

China plans to realize space-walking, spacecraft rendezvous and docking and set up a space laboratory, according to a blueprint approved by the State Council.

Meanwhile, the government would also give priority to developing a satellite, aircraft and stratosphere airship-based high definition earth observation system, said a senior official with the Commission of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence.


The blueprint, framed by the commission, is the 11th five-year (2006-2010) plan for space development.

The blueprint said China would improve its Compass navigation system, according to the official.


The system, based on plans to launch five geostationary earth orbit satellites and 30 medium earth orbit satellites, is aimed at providing navigation and positioning services in transportation, meteorology, petroleum prospecting, forest fire monitoring, disaster forecasting, telecommunications and public security.

Apart from launching the country's first moon orbiter, China would also study the second and third stages of its lunar exploration projects, the official said.

China was making final preparations for the launch of its first moon orbiter at the end of October, Zhang Qingwei, minister in charge of the commission, said last Thursday.


Advanced cameras and X-ray spectrometers have been installed in the orbiter for mapping three-dimensional images of the lunar surface, analyzing dust, and studying the space environment between the Earth and the moon.

The next step in the ambitious mission is to launch a recoverable moon vehicle.

USC US-China Institute: Talking Points (October 17 - October 31, 2007)

USC U.S.-China Institute

“We in no way want to stir the pot and make China feel that we are poking a stick in their eye.... We understand the Chinese have very strong feelings about this.”

-- Dana Perino, White House press secretary, speaking to reporters on October 16, 2007 following a Tuesday meeting between the Dalai Lama and the president and Mrs. Bush. Perino was explaining why no official photo from the meeting was being released.


“We solemnly demand that the US side cancel the extremely wrong arrangement…. The Chinese side has made solemn representations on this many times."

-- Yang Jiechi, Chinese Foreign Minister, speaking to reporters in Beijing on Oct. 16, 2007


“I said [to Chinese President Hu] I'm going because I want to honor this man. I have consistently told the Chinese that religious freedom is in their nation's interest. I've also told them that it's in their interest to meet with the Dalai Lama and will say so at the ceremony."

-- George W. Bush, Oct. 17, 2007 press conference, explaining why he will join today’s ceremony honoring the Dalai Lama with the Congressional Gold Medal


Neither the Bush administration nor China’s leaders want differences over Tibet’s present and future to become a major issue in our bilateral relationship. Both governments understand this and while both find it necessary to vigorously affirm their values and positions, neither wants the issue to escalate.


Improving understanding of the multidimensional U.S.-China relationship and trends in contemporary China is the central mission of the U.S.-China Institute. This Friday, we have asked Irv Drasnin, producer of 1972’s Misunderstanding China and other influential CBS and PBS documentaries, to discuss the challenges confronting filmmakers working in China trying to explain China to Americans. Details about “Documenting China” are below.


One reason the Chinese foreign minister reacted so strongly is that China’s Communist Party is in the midst of its 17th Plenum in Beijing. It’s not yet clear who will join General Secretary (and President) Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao on the Party’s Political Bureau, but in his opening address Hu has already affirmed that despite China’s obvious and remarkable gains, there remain great economic disparities from region to region and between cities and the countryside. Hu’s argued that the Party and government must address this as well as social unease over these disparities, environmental degradation, and official corruption.


At the USC Global Conference in Tokyo next week, distinguished business leaders such as Ronnie Chan (Chair, Han Lung Group) and scholars from China, Taiwan, and the U.S. will examine these challenges and discuss the investment climate in the Pacific Rim as well as the geopolitical implications of China’s economic rise. USCI has organized two of the conference’s panels. More than 300 people have registered to attend the gathering.


Other events this week include USC Architecture Dean Qingyun Ma’s talk on curatorial urbanism, Sun Hua’s talk at UCLA on archaeology in the area of the Three Gorges Dam, and a major conference in Washington on Hong Kong today. As always, look below and to the calendar section of our website for information about China-related events, performances, and exhibitions.
