Sharing Power With China

Sharing Power With China | In this Ooooh so fabulous world. | Scoop.it
No one in China believes that it’s their destiny to submit to American leadership indefinitely.

Christopher Chao's insight:

This is a silly matter that people have to come to fight about but I can see where they are coming from. Since these countries still think like old 1800 like people they need to have a war for these few islands. I don't think America should help Japan because this not in the matter of war that which we should help. Its japan and china trying to claim something not someone attacking someone and converting communism.

Stealing Books for the Poor in China

Stealing Books for the Poor in China | In this Ooooh so fabulous world. | Scoop.it
In the West, piracy is a matter of intellectual property but in China, the issue is not just legal, but social.

Via Joel Bloch
Christopher Chao's insight:

This was interesting, because people in China pirate material sometimes for the poor to see it because they were to poor to actually purchase the item themselves. This might be beneficial for the world actually I never thought of it like that. They are fueling childrens minds that want to read because they can get the book without having to ask parents that can't afford them. It doesn't end well on the author side though. This is a bit of a controversial topic.

Nazi Scientists Tried To Use Mosquitoes As Weapons?

Nazi Scientists Tried To Use Mosquitoes As Weapons? | In this Ooooh so fabulous world. | Scoop.it
Mosquitoes as weapons? It was nearly a real-life threat during World War II, new research suggests.
Christopher Chao's insight:

Woah... People were that horrible in that time? They really wanted to infect people that horribly. I could never imagine so much darkness in a person that they could do that without realizing the after effect of this almost project. They are going to make the decision of peoples lives and will eventually change the world.

Social media is very key to helping people learn how to have better english. What is this sentence I just read in the article.

I think this article can really help some people. It is very to the point on what can help you in writing so if someone just takes the advice it can potentially help them.

This is really interesting for someone who is transitioning from a native speaker to speaking, reading and writing English.  There are 7 different ways to improve their English and things people who already speak English may take for granted. One of the tips is as easy to just watch television and see how the people interact. There are other simple methods like thinking in English and trying to speak in only English. I think the problem may be about this paper is that its trying to convert the native speakers into only speaking English. That's what i got from it since it was very repetitive about only doing things in English.

Building a Better Battery

Building a Better Battery | In this Ooooh so fabulous world. | Scoop.it
As tech companies focus on small, wearable devices, they have encountered an obstacle: Battery technology is largely stuck in the 20th century.

Via David Scott Lewis
Christopher Chao's insight:

They are working to find a better alternative to the battery. With the competition on, many different engineers have hopped on to this dilemma in search for a battery that can absorb energy from nearby objects or an efficient compact solar panel that could fit in your phone. Soon enough they could move this technology into cars and have cars that power themselves so well that we might not need the power of gasoline.

With technological advances soaring at a seemingly unstoppable rate, one drawback limits everything: The battery. With battery technology at an almost stand-still, major companies such as Google and Apple are searching for alternative forms of batteries other than the outdated lithium ion technology. These new theoretical power sources range from solar power all the way to air powered.
