The Lantern Festival ( yun xio ji ) in Shanghai

Directional complements in the construction

Satirist Hu Geproducer of hugely popular videosmocking CCTVand filmmaker Chen Kaige, has struck again with another viral hit. This one, a critique of Internetcensorship, stars several online celebrities and mocks a popular nature program, Animal World () by introducing a new species, the Apartment Dweller, whose habitat is a high-rise apartment and whose primary activity is surfing the web. The video (in Chinese) follows the Apartment Dweller as they encounter numerous dangers and are protected by humans who prevent them from downloading movies, watching yellow (porn) sites, and other risky behavior. Those who suffer from the contagious disease of thinking, have their content reviewed in multiple layers and are forced to wait. The actor portraying this particular thinking breed is none other than best-selling author, race car driver and hottest blogger Han Han.

China ushers in the Year of the Tigeron Sunday, kicking off a week-long celebration marked by festive fireworks and family gatherings.

But conservationists warn that unless China and a dozen other countries act urgently, wild tigers will vanish from the planet by 2022, the next Year of the Tiger.

A century ago, more than 100,000 big cats roamed the Earth, but stocks have plummeted: scientists say there are now just 3,200.

China, once home to thousands of wild tigers, has fewer than 50.

Chinas Year of the (Endangered) Tiger


The Chinese government is considering taking meat from pet animals off menus across the country, raising concerns among dog farmers who have relied on the industry for generations.

The draft proposal to ban dog and cat meat has drawn an angry outcry from regions where the dish is popular.

Opponents say the ban would destroy local culinary traditions.
