Beijing’s message to Sweden and beyond – criticise us, and we’ll topple your agenda – won’t win it any hearts and minds

China’s new diplomacy in Europe has a name: broken porcelain
Screengrab from the ‘video that purported to show the ‘brutal treatment’ of three Chinese tourists at a hotel in Stockholm’.

Two days after Sweden’s election in September, a bizarre statement appeared in English on the website of the Chinese embassy in Stockholm. A “small handful of Swedish forces, media and individuals”, it said, had made “unwarranted claims” of Chinese interference in the Swedish vote. These were “groundless accusations”, and a “malicious attack and smear against China”.

The puzzling part: there is no trace of a discussion in Sweden about the possibility of Chinese interference in the election – not in the media, not among politicians, not even in national security circles. The embassy’s unprovoked denial has left observers confused.==>ASU,negara nyeee bukan cuman jago NIPU tetapi juga jago NGARANG waaa!!!! emoticon-Najis (S)

As an expert on China’s official discourse who also studies its influence in Europe, I too struggled to make sense of this storm in a teapot – until a few days later, when a new tempest whirled into view. This time, Sweden noticed. The source of the fresh controversy was an online video that purported to show the “brutal treatment” of three Chinese tourists at a hotel in Stockholm.As I read the angry comments from China’s foreign ministry, it suddenly all made perfect sense. The expressions of outrage were part of a concerted diplomatic strategy of hyperbole and distraction.

In the video, the tourists – identified as Mr Zeng and his two elderly parents – are carried from the hotel by police officers, and deposited on the pavement outside as the son screams in English: “This is killing! This is killing!” The mother sits on the pavement and wails: “Save me!” According to a local newspaper, Aftonbladet, the tourists had arrived at the hotel the night before their scheduled booking and asked to remain in the lobby through the night. They disregarded repeated requests to leave, remaining instead on the lobby sofas. One eyewitness said the police remained calm as the Chinese family grew agitated. The son, this source said, acted particularly oddly, “throwing himself flat on the ground”. Quoted by local media, a Swedish prosecutor later said: “We made the assessment that no crime on the part of the police had been committed.”

Land of SICK and RETARD jd bahan tertawaan waaa!!![/b]

The Chinese embassy, in a statement on 15 September, insisted that the tourists had been “brutally abused by the Swedish police”, which had “severely endangered the life and violated the basic human rights of Chinese citizens”.

Many Chinese people who viewed the video clips on domestic social media platforms were furious about what they saw as mistreatment.But others saw something different:a familiar pattern of using over-dramatisation as a means of recourse for real or imagined injustice. Called “porcelain bumping”, or pengci, this pattern became a focus of attention as the hubbub over the Stockholm incident continued in China.Pengci refers to the practice of manufacturing drama to obtain a desired outcome. According to one explanation, the term was coined to describe a technique used by fraudsters who would wait with delicate porcelain vessels outside busy markets and demand payment when these shattered, ostensibly due to the carelessness of others.

Now, pengci often refers to the act of throwing oneself into oncoming traffic in order to claim compensation – a practice so common in China that related compilations of clips online are now nearly as ubiquitous as cat videos.

Still, the Chinese embassy in Sweden continued to depict the incident as a grave case of human rights abuse. The foreign ministry’s position was parroted by state-run media. One article shared by a social media account of the People’s Daily alleged that talk of “porcelain bumping”, and other attempts to minimise the Stockholm incident, had been cooked up overseas by Falun Gong, a spiritual movement that the Chinese government has labelled an enemy.

At this point official Chinese outrage had moved on to a skit aired on 21 September on a satirical show by the Swedish national broadcaster, SVT, that made light of the incident. A statement from the Chinese embassy said the skit had “breached the basic moral bottom line of humankind”. Moreover, it had “seriously infringed on Chinese sovereignty and territorial integrity” by projecting a map behind the host that did not show Taiwan and Tibet as an integral part of China.

This came at an already tense time in the bilateral relationship. The Dalai Lama had visited Sweden just days before the video of the tourists appeared. Another sore point was China’s continued imprisonment of a Hong Kong-based bookseller, Gui Minhai, who is a Swedish citizen. Oscar Almén, a researcher at Uppsala University, told Radio Sweden: “The Chinese embassy is now actively trying to deliver a message to the Swedish media and the public.”

That message is a solemn promise to government and society in Europe and beyond: wherever you seek to criticise our policies or forestall our ambitions, we will topple your agenda. We will shatter the porcelain of diplomatic composure and fan the anger of our population with debased facts until every issue you raise is about just one issue – China’s national dignity.

Earlier this month “broken porcelain” diplomacy moved on to the British Conservative party’s annual conference in Birmingham, as a journalist from state-owned China Central Television shouted down a panellist at an event on Hong Kong organised by the party’s human rights committee, which was attended by prominent members of the pro-democracy community in Hong Kong.As the woman was confronted and asked to leave, she apparently slapped a student volunteer. She shouted, “How democratic [is the] UK!” as she was being escorted out.==>Bagi SICKmen of Asia,gampar org adalah bentuk demokrasi!!! emoticon-Najis (S)

The Chinese embassy in London demanded an apology.And while it made a fuss about the reporter’s rights, it also pointed out, in a statement, that “any plot or action conspiring to divide China is contrary to the current of history”. Discussion of Hong Kong’s future, in other words, was to be avoided.

The pattern is clear. When it comes to foreign criticism of the Chinese government, or to the strategic issues it cares about, we’re all tiptoeing through a china shop now. The danger is that such histrionics could make European governments, universities, scholars and journalists, to remain silent, retreat from issues likely to prompt an outburst.

Europe must send a message that it welcomes free, open and calm discussion of all issues, and that it will not suspend its values or the rights of its citizens to appease China’s official bouts of anger.

If we refuse to indulge such tactics, China’s government will eventually come to understand what many of its citizens already know – that you don’t win hearts or minds through intimidation.

Raja NIPU!!haiyaa news,Kindergarten corruption even young pupils are crooked

A renowned Chinese writer has lamented that corruption and the trading of power and influence is so widespread in society that it has even spilled into some kindergartens and primary schools.

“In kindergarten, a child will tell the teacher: ‘My father works at a coal company. Please let me know if you are short of coal,” historical fiction writer Ling Jiefang, better known by his pen name Eryue He, said in a speech at the Ministry of Agriculture yesterday, the Beijing Times reported.

“At primary school, some pupils enjoy privileges when they become class leaders, such as being exempted from homework,” he said.

“The problem of corruption needs to be tackled from the root, therefore we need to study how to develop an anti-graft system.”

Ling cited historical examples to argue that well-paid officials may also incline to corruption, because people’s desires are endless.

He said the Song dynasty (960-1279) had the highest salary standard for officials in ancient China, with pay 10 times higher than during the Qing dynasty (1644-1911) and six times higher than during the Han dynasty (206BC-AD220).

“However, even with such high salaries, the Song dynasty had only one honest and upright official, Bao Zheng. The Song’s GDP and culture both reached a peak, but it was also the most corrupt dynasty in China’s history,” he said.===>TRADISI yeeeeee!!!???

Xi Super Duper RAJA Penipu!!!!

Pemimpin nyee Tukang TIPU,rakyat nyeee kagak beda jauh waaaa!!!

However, commentators have questioned this qualification, pointing out a series of problems with it.

The Sunday Times of London commissioned scholars to read the unpublished PhD thesis who noted that the content has little to do with law, appears to contain no original research, and reads like a collection of quotes from existing published works.

Writer Joe Chung compared Xi's works with those of other scholars and found that numerous passages had been copied from previously published works or works published around the same time as Xi's.

In one case, citations were shown to have been copied from another work, including misspellings and punctuation errors in that previously published work. Based on this research, Chung raised the question of whether Xi plagiarised his PhD.

Tukang TIPU,Doctors fake articles in British journal

A leading British medical journal has retracted 43 published articles after it was found that the authors had fabricated their peer reviews.

As many as 41 of the articles were written by doctors who worked in Chinese hospitals including the highly-respected Beijing Anzhen Hospital, Shanghai Chest Hospital, People's Liberation Army 452 Hospital and Shanghai East Hospital.

According to the UK's Committee on Publication Ethics, the authors used the services of agents involved in "selling pre-written manuscripts to fabricate contact details for peer reviewers."

According to a survey of 1,920 doctors carried out by Zhengzhou-based newspaper Orient Today, 80 per cent believe that fabrication of research and peer reviews is a major issue.==>SICKMEN of Asia bikin MALU waaa!!!

Raja NIPU???...Fraud frenzy? Chinese seek U.S. college admission at any price

"We want Chinese parents and students to know that it's a big issue that a lot of Chinese students don't succeed academically in the U.S." Chen says.

"You can't just have the agencies make them look good or even fake documentation before sending them abroad. They need a lot of guidance."

Tkg Tipu news,China October trade data shows signs of manipulation, hot money

China's exports and large trade surplus in October pointed to signs of manipulation and inflows of speculative hot money, the official Shanghai Securities News said on Monday, suggesting that firms continue to over-invoice trade deals to avoid capital controls.
"There are signs that faked trade deals have raised their head of late," the newspaper said in a report, quoting economists.

The September data showed a substantial gap between what China said it exported to Hong Kong and what Hong Kong said it imported from the mainland. Economists say signs of hot money inflows suggest firms may be trying to evade capital controls by over-invoicing sales of items such as precious metal sales.

China’s problem with fake research papers

From the land that brought you poisonous toothpaste, toxic pet food and milk powder that sickens and kills children now comes a new perilous product: fabricated papers in medical journals with fake peer reviews written by fabricated specialists.

In April, the international publishing company Springer Nature announced that it was retracting 107 research papers by Chinese authors after discovering irregularities in the peer-review process of articles published in the journal Tumor Biology between 2012 and 2016.

The retraction of more than 100 papers constituted the largest single withdrawal of academic papers, according to Retraction Watch, which monitors academic fraud.

China has risen rapidly in recent years and has played an increasingly important role not only in the economy but in virtually all spheres. But along the way it also hit a few bumps, when greedy Chinese business people put money ahead of people's safety and welfare in China and abroad.

Thus, in 2007, customers in the United States were told to discard all made-in-China toothpaste after federal officials found toothpaste containing a poison used in antifreeze in several U.S. locations.

The same year, there was a pet-food scare of gigantic proportions when many brands of cat and dog foods manufactured in China were recalled in North America, Europe and South Africa. There were numerous reports of animal deaths as a result of kidney failure.

The following year, within China, thousands of children were sickened after consuming milk powder contaminated with melamine, which had been added to watered-down milk to make it appear more nutritious. Many children developed acute kidney failure, a few of whom died.

Eventually, two people were convicted and executed for their role in adding the industrial chemical to infant formula.

Where academic papers are concerned, China is one of the world's largest producers, churning out more than 300,000 articles a year that are sent to international journals.

Because the government uses publication in peer-reviewed journals as a benchmark of academic performance, there is pressure to publish such papers and an underground industry has sprung up to meet this demand.

Such practices as the writing of fabricated "peer reviews" using phony names reflect a shocking lack of integrity on the part of those who are considered part of the country's academic elite. Most of the authors of the retracted works are not neophytes but are from top medical institutions in China.

After Springer Nature made its announcement, China announced a krackdown on academic fraud, with the Ministry of Science and Technology promising a "zero tolerance" approach.

He Defang, director of the ministry's regulatory division, was quoted as saying: "We should eradicate the problem from its roots."

In fact, even Chinese courts backed stiff penalties for those who fabricate research studies that lead to the approval of harmful drugs and called for punishment that includes a 10-year prison term or even the death penalty.

At the end of July, the Ministry of Science and Technology announced the results of its investigation into the case. It largely upheld the decision made by Springer Nature.

At a press briefing, the ministry announced that, of 521 authors implicated, it deemed 11 to have been innocent, with 24 others still under investigation. Of the others, 486 were found to be guilty of misconduct at various levels, with 102 mainly responsible and 70 secondarily responsible, while 314 were found not to have participated in fraud but to have been negligent.

Twelve papers were purchased from third-party institutions, with 89 papers completed by the authors themselves. Nine were fake in content.

Director He said that the fraud had severely damaged China's national image, and called for a healthier academic environment and harsher punishment for academic misdeeds.

As for punishment of those responsible, the director said that 376 authors had been banned from undertaking research programs for various periods of time, and their qualifications for promotion had been cancelled, their research funds taken away, and awards and honours revoked.

This is a wake-up call for China. Ten years after the scandals arose, both Chinese toothpaste and pet food is safe. Even the melamine scare appears to be largely over.

So China is no doubt fully capable of tackling the problem of academic fraud. But it won't be easy and it is a sign that academic and other institutions need to be strengthened. It is way too early for China to rest on its laurels. A lot of hard work lies ahead, and there is no shortcut to success for anyone, including doctors, scientists and researchers.

The Truth about China’s Cash-for-Publication Policy

China’s new diplomacy in Europe has a name: broken porcelain

Today we get an answer thanks to the work of Wei Quan at Wuhan University, Bikun Chen at Nanjing University of Science and Technology, and Fei Shu at McGill University in Montreal.

These guys have surveyed the financial incentives offered by the top 100 universities in China and mined that data for interesting trends. They say that cash-per-publication incentives are common and that scientists who publish in the top Western journals can earn in excess of $100,000 per paper. What’s more, there are already worrying signs that these financial rewards are skewing the process of science in China.

Cash-for-publications is ‘common practice’

Lucrative offer to secure professor’s journal papers has renewed concerns over ‘unethical’ contracts used to distort university rankings

Jeroen Huisman, professor of higher education at Belgium’s Ghent University, told Times Higher Education how he received an unsolicited email from an individual claiming to act on behalf of a large university in eastern China, which asked if he would be interested in accepting a “distinguished visiting professorship”.

When Professor Huisman, a former University of Bath academic, replied to the email out of curiosity, he was immediately sent a contract stating that he would be paid a total of 300,000 yuan (£35,703) if he produced a total of three journal papers, appearing in Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science, in which Zhengzhou University was listed as the first affiliated institution.

The cash would be paid in monthly instalments over three years or, alternatively, in a lump sum when the journal articles appeared, the contract said. If the required publications did not materialise, Professor Huisman would be obliged to return the money he received, it added.

He was also invited to appear as a second or third author on a journal article in which a Zhengzhou academic would be the first author. Only two visits to the institution in Henan province were stipulated in contract, during which two to four speeches would be given to students, the contract added.

Rui Yang, associate dean cross border/international engagement at the University of Hong Kong’s Faculty of Education, believed that such contracts were “fairly common practice” and that he had received many approaches of this nature.

“I declined quite a few such contracts in 2016 alone,” said Professor Yang, adding that he informed those making these offers that they were “not good enough ethically”.

“However, within Chinese society today, such things are indeed quite OK to both sides,” he said.

China pursues fraudsters in science publishing

China’s main basic research agency is kracking down on scientists who used fake peer reviews to publish papers, demanding that serious offenders return research funding. The move accompanies an announcement by the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) in Beijing, first reported by state media on 12 November, that it had investigated dozens of scientists involved in peer-review scams. The probe’s findings highlighted the role of China’s many unscrupulous paper brokers, which peddle ghostwritten or fraudulent papers.

“If it wasn't obvious before, it is now difficult to deny China's research community has serious underlying ethical issues,” says Benjamin Shaw, China director for the English-language editing company Edanz in Beijing.

The CAST investigation underscores the role of paper brokers, who profit from China’s publish-or-perish mentality. According to People’s Daily, the association contacted each of the 31 Chinese authors who had papers retracted by BMC. (BMC provided CAST with information when asked but did not collaborate on the investigation, says BMC spokesperson Shane Canning.) Fully 29 authors admitted to using a broker, with many shelling out fees ranging from $600 to more than $5500.
