Quoted @zoescaman

In an unintentionally hilarious video released by Japan’s Fuji-Q Highland amusement park, two execs ride a rollercoaster in complete silence to showcase a new rule of 'no screaming' in an effort to curb CV19. Instead they suggest you "scream inside your heart.” via @futurism https://t.co/OcBR81OpB6

Seems about right... https://t.co/mpNGkCbi9C

American NSA Robert O'Brien: "Dangerous ideologies backed by powerful states rarely confine their malign conduct within their own borders. The United States will thus continue to shine the light of truth on Xinjiang — for the Uighurs and for us all." https://t.co/0JCatDLSkB

“We can curb population growth without endorsing anything as brutal as the one-child policy, or its more vicious cousin, the genocide in Xinjiang.” My take in ⁦@TheAtlantic#Xinjiang #OneChild https://t.co/x40UCz1aU6

Exciting news for everyone who loved “Nothing to Envy” about ordinary lives in North Korea. @BarbaraDemick has a new book out this month: “Eat the Buddha: Life and Death in a Tibetan Town.” It’s an amazing work. But don’t just take my word for it: https://t.co/PshQtOecOR https://t.co/THYg4g3zq4

The cost of operating during a pandemic, and people's vastly different experiences of it, told through one burger's journey from tube of frozen sperm to centerpiece of millennial movie night. Incredible reporting, beautifully told, from @mjcontrera https://t.co/COketRlyey

Oh, and also I just talked to @Eugene_Bingham and @adudding about what it's like back in China. Listen here: https://t.co/gu2reAyFzS https://t.co/7P2Bnqi2rq

Got a thrill to see my second-to-last story from New Zealand get a double page spread in the Dominion Post and the Press this week. One more New Zealand story to run... https://t.co/gyAiRBlL35

As if China’s “gaokao” college entrance exam wasn’t daunting enough, severe flooding has made it crazy stressful: Some students even clung to tractors with front-end shovels to cross waist-deep water to get to their test site. Story from ⁦@evadouhttps://t.co/qsTDPbfQME

Oh hey there’s another flare-up of bubonic plague in northern China. Because 2020. https://t.co/jfCFanDBkP

Succinct summary of NZ-China issues by ⁦@annafifield⁩ . But a key step is for NZ exporters to accept that China is now a high return, high risk market, and the NZ gov’t can no longer protect them from any blowback. There can now be no NZ Inc on China https://t.co/62ZbT8Mr0t

Under Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand carefully tweaks how it deals with China. It is increasingly speaking up against China but trying to avoid the kind of retaliation Australia and Canada are enduring. My report from Wellington: https://t.co/QBPJ81wXck

After 14 full days in a hotel room outside Shanghai with no human contact except the occasional glimpse of someone in hazmat bringing us food, we are out of quarantine! The lovely hotel staff farewelled us with a rose and a little box of Ferrero Roche. Beijing here we come https://t.co/VAESsR8C56

We are thrilled that 'Under Red Skies: The Life and Times of a Chinese Millennial' by @KarolineCQKan is @BBCRadio4's #BookOfTheWeek this week! Available on our website at 25% discount w/code 'REDSKIES25' https://t.co/iMfQNJb680

This is a great book and you should buy it 👇 Karoline Kan’s journey from a small Chinese village to the @nytimes and beyond - and the influence of strong women in her family - is the story of modern China you want to read https://t.co/i6gKFloiN9

Are some people more genetically vulnerable - or resistant? - to the coronavirus? A fascinating look at one big Indian family where all the adults got sick and survived, including the 90-year-old grandfather (who was asymptomatic!) From @jslaternyc https://t.co/XU1zK6NNPv

An estimated two million New York City families are facing food insecurity during this coronavirus crisis. Searing work from @Yunghi https://t.co/xvlMpSFni5

BREAKING via Geremie Barmé @chinaheritage: “Friends in Beijing report that this morning, local time, Professor Xu Zhangrun was formally detained. Some ten police vehicles and dozens of police officers were involved in the operation.” More details: https://t.co/d1s2EaXwU4

Fauci: "It dominates everything I do. The only time I don’t wear one is when I am alone, when I am home with my wife, or when I am speaking in public--provided there is 6 feet between me and the people to whom I am speaking." https://t.co/Ut4Tz3vKww
