Sticking our head in the sand when it comes to climate change is no longer an option (though admittedly easier considering the rate of desertification), and China is at the forefront of mitigating the effects of global warming. Can the Middle Kingdom rise to the infrastructure challenges posed by the specter of global warming? Perhaps, but these problems are getting bigger every day. We’ve also got “Out of Time” this issue, which discusses the prevalence of overtime and how it’s affecting the modern workplace.
“Open the Gates” looks at how Chinese parks are anything but public and how they might be opening up in the very near future. For our final feature, we have “New Age of Ads,” which looks at how social media profiles are becoming a haven for advertisers wanting to capitalize on temporary online celebrity.
As usual, we aim to bring you the very best in Chinese stories, including a first-ever look at a translated short story by Hugo Award-winner Hao Jingfang, a look into China’s last cavalry ranch, and a study into the cultural tropes and hopes of fox mythology. So, what are you waiting for?
