Chinadaily USA Christmas no threat to Chinese culture Chinadaily USA The seeming "invasion" of foreign culture, to a certain extent, poses a threat to traditional Chinese culture.
Hye-Hyun Kang's insight:
Chinese are tyring to make a change in the celebration of Christmas because they believe that their own culture is being "invaded" by foreign culture. Many Chinese take Christmas as the opportunity to relax and have a good time. But many people in China have no idea why Christmas is celebrated even though they know all of why other Chinese festivals are celebrated. This is the power and unconscious influence of traditional culture.
Washington Post Probe: Asiana pilot wasn't confident, assertive WSET WASHINGTON (AP) - The investigation into the crash-landing of an Asiana Airlines flight at San Francisco's airport last summer has highlighted problems with cockpit culture and...
Hye-Hyun Kang's insight:
Interesting how culture is involved in this accident. The junior co-pilot noticed the problem and wanted to tell the senior co-pilot but did not because it will be consider rude in his culture. Also, the senior pilot wanted to wear his sunglasses but did not so because it will be disrespectful for his superiors. I wonder if the accident could've been stopped if the pilots ignored their culture and shared their thoughts.
There is a pretty ridiculous North-South split, although Maryland, northern Virginia, and southern Florida (which is pretty much the North anyways) fall into pancake territory, while Waffle House has made inroads into Ohio and Indiana.
Cyber Culture: Likes, dislikes and the strange folk who buy them online The Independent Earlier this week I saw someone mention on Twitter that they'd just seen a gig flyer where the band had proudly included their current total of Facebook likes...
People buys likes and dislikes for their social media websites. "Likes" presented under Facebook status are sometimes fake likes from fake accounts. Some people buy many likes for their youtube videos and to remedy this they ask some strangers to buy dislikes to balance it out. This is very ridiculous!
"Four Chinese students have taken to YouTube to explain the social misunderstandings that block many foreign students—particularly those from Asia—from integrating with the slang-speaking, booze-guzzling Americans."
Chinese enrollment has increased by 365 percent but about one fourth of those students don't finish school and go back to China. Major reasons for leaving was not being able to interact and to adjust to American culture. When Americans see Chinese students talking to each other other in Mandarin, they make a comment, "You're in America. You should speak English." Many Chinese students chose to speak Mandarin rather than English because it is their native language. Also, many students that are coming from China learned how to get good grades in American schools not how to communicate in English. In the video, two students point out that yes international students should try their best to improve their language, but they shouldn't feel bad for speaking their own native language.
