psychological and sociocultural impact on immigrants Feb 25, 2014

Thanks for the links. I agree with Bonnie Erbe: “The practice is legal through a constitutional loophole, but is highly unethical.” Nevertheless, it is still illegal to use a private home or an apartment as a maternity hotel disturbing other people’s life. On the other hand, I also agree with the child’s father Mr. Bo: “The citizenship is just a piece of paper, but to integrate into America is a very gradual process. To integrate into American society, to integrate into the American masses, to become a real American, this is a very long process.” There are still a lot more headaches he and his child have to face in the years to come. They should know that opportunities come with responsibilities.




Yueyin,

That is indeed very true. I searched for this old post of mine that had a couple of links to some research papers on the psychological and sociocultural impact on immigrants.

http://www.proz.com/post/659092#659092

The links are both defunct now. Luckily I did quote some of the text back then, and now am able to Google for at least one of the research papers, with success.

    谢谢您引的这些语录,让人回忆起很多事情。

    当今中国不知从哪又兴起下跪之风。上访的下跪,情愿的下跪,学生给老师下跪,民众给官员下跪。粉丝给偶像下跪已经让我惊愕不已,还有选秀的评委给选手下跪的。每次看的下跪的镜头,我就不禁想起我的父母亲。他们在六十多年前曾经因为拒绝在婚礼上下跪,被爷爷骂为“畜牲”。真不知这些当年的“愤青”今日该作何感想!

    王平 文章 Feb 28, 2014

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Locke



    In late-November 2013, Locke announced that he would step down as ambassador to spend more time with his family back in Seattle. In an analysis of his ambassadorship, Sun Zhe, a professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing, said, "It is not an easy job to be the American ambassador to China. Gary Locke is not a shining star, but a simple and unadorned ambassador." Shen Dingli, the dean of the international studies department at Fudan University in Shanghai, largely concurred, commenting that Locke "showed us how a U.S. minister-level official behaves by taking economy-class flights", but "caused a twist" when he allowed Chen refuge in the U.S. embassy.[27] Max Baucus, a former United States Senator from Montana was President Obama's nominee to replace Locke, and was confirmed by the Senate 96–0; Vice President Joe Biden administered the oath of office on February 21, 2014, thus ending Locke's ambassadorship.



    Yueyin,

    The essay doesn't surprise me; it's in line with the characteristics outlined in the book "Chinese Characteristics" (It's on its way from Amazon, BTW). For such a nice guy as Locke, the author still finds fault and writes such a vicious commentary full of sarcasm. It's obvious to me who's showing their true colors.

    We'll see how Max Baucus is received. He was confirmed by the Senate unanimously.

    World Health Organization's warning Feb 28, 2014

    WHO Warns Beijing of Hazardous Pollution Risk
    Urges Residents to Stay Indoors on Sixth Day of Hazardous-Level Air Pollution

    BEIJING—The World Health Organization on Tuesday called on China to improve its air quality and urged residents of Beijing to stay indoors as the capital city suffered a sixth day of hazardous-level air pollution.

    Bernhard Schwartländer, the organization's China chief, said he is concerned about the smog that has smothered Beijing in recent days. The WHO has been in contact with national authorities to discuss the problem and steps toward a solving it.

    "There is no easy solution," Dr. Schwartländer said, adding that solving the problem requires managing industry and the economy.

    As of Tuesday night, levels of tiny, hazardous particulate matter known as PM2.5 averaged 452 micrograms per cubic meter over a 24-hour period, according to readings from the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. That was more than 18 times the WHO's recommended level of 25 micrograms per cubic meter.

    Heavily pollution has plagued much of northern and central China since Thursday. Since the weekend, governments in the northeastern city of Tianjin and northern Hebei province have taken steps that include reducing the number of cars on the road and suspending some production in industries such as steel.

    China's National Meteorological Center said Tuesday it reaffirmed the region's orange alert, its second-most-severe air-pollution warning after red under a system enacted in October amid rising public pressure on authorities to act on pollution. That alert level requires a halt to construction work and orders factories to temporarily reduce emissions by 30%. Fireworks and outdoor barbecuing are also banned. Children and the elderly are advised to stay indoors, and residents are encouraged to use public transportation instead of cars.
    In Beijing, where a light gray mist shrouded buildings and landmarks, WHO officials said the pollution levels pose a threat to human health, though they cautioned that they couldn't link recent pollution levels with local media reports of specific cases of lung cancer and other ailments.

    "We're cautious of whether the illness is related to air pollution," said Shin Young-Soo, the WHO's Western Pacific regional director, adding, "We know it has an impact on health, but we don't know how much."

    In a sign that China's top leadership acknowledges the problem poses a credibility issue for them, official Chinese media covered the pollution problem extensively. The official Xinhua News Agency quoted a local environmental official in Hebei province as acknowledging that a lawsuit filed by a citizen against the local government reflected increasing environmental awareness. Xinhua said the citizen, Li Guixin, filed the suit in a local court in the district of Yuhua on Feb. 20.

    Meanwhile, China's online community remarked on the appearance of China's top leader, Xi Jinping, on a trendy street in Beijing Tuesday. Chinese social media showed Mr. Xi —China's president and the general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party—strolling down an alleyway called Nanluoguxiang, an area popular with tourists and filled with street-food vendors and other businesses. Such public appearances by senior Chinese leaders are rare.

    Many noted that he walked outside on such a heavily polluted day without an air mask. "Breathing together, sharing the same fate," read a widely repeated response on Sina Corp.'s SINA Weibo microblogging platform.



    All I can say to the new ambassador is load up on bottles of O₂ .

    Steve,

    Of course, Gary Locke has nothing to do with the occurrence of fog and haze in China. If he has anything to do with the fog and haze, that is he let the ordinary Chinese people know that there is something on earth called “PM2.5” although it has been there for many years. It is said that the clear sky in Beijing returned to “as usual” the next day after 王平's article was published.

    当年我在兰州工作时,国外媒体登出的卫星照片显示,兰州西固地区是世界上污染最严重的地区(没有“之一”两字)。可是,如果拿当时兰州西固地区的雾霾与现在其它地区的雾霾相比,那就是小“雾”见大“雾”了!

    痴人说梦 Feb 28, 2014

    Yueyin,

    Indeed the author is 痴人说梦.

    Gary Locke was born and raised in the United States. Why does the author want to mock him of any Western values or habits he possesses that the author himself cannot comprehend or fathom? Moreover, what does Locke's Chinese ancestry have to do with anything when it comes to the author's brazen mudslinging and hurling of insults?

    I say that's 2 undesirable traits right there ...

    Talent for indirection &
    Intellectual turbidity
