Asian American Lawsuit against Ivy League Admissions
64 organizations filed a discrimination suit against Harvard, with the US Education Dept.
At Cal Tech which is race neutral, 46% of under-graduates are Asian. In the Ivy League, 21%. UC Berkeley is at least 42%, may be over 50% when International students are included.
Asians have to score for Harvard Admissions:
- 140 points higher than white students
- 270 points higher than Hispanic students
- 450 points higher than African-American
Harvard Accused of Bias Against Asian-Americans
Yes, next question.
Do Ivy League schools have a 'bamboo ceiling' on admissions?
- China Daily USA
A good read, sad, but believable.
Side note, so how would you hide the amount of Asian attending UC Berkeley?
By listing ethnicity by country background! And break out International as a separate category. Note this is not done for Hispanics...

Chinese Backed Rail in Israel
I am surprised that China is backing a rail line in Israel.
China seeks strategic foothold in Israel
The continued threat of economic boycotts targeting Israel hasn't
deterred China from forging ahead with a new freight rail link through
Israel. The planned link could provide an alternative to the Suez Canal.

Xi's Corruption Campaign Comes to the US
From what I am reading, China's government is now working to go after corrupt officials that are in the US. Currently, the US has no extradition treaty with China.

Lawsuits in Arcadia over McMansions
I am surprised at the amount of comments, 29 so far.
A group called, Save the Arcadia Highlands
, is suing to stop construction of two large mansions in Northern Arcadia. They are using the CEQA, California Environmental Quality Act. I note on their website, at least one of the members is Chinese. Arcadia is 59% Chinese, and have been attracted by the excellent school district. I grew up in Monrovia, next door, so I am very familiar with Arcadia.

China's Robot Problem
Interesting article, that brings up a lot of questions on what impact this will have on China's economy in the future.
states the number of components in a chip can double every two years. This means in two years, you will be able to buy a computer that is twice as powerful for the same price you would pay today. This applies to most computer based devices, including smart phones and robots. This means that Robots every year are getting smarter and cheaper. And Chinese wages are increasing
every year. And we will see what impact 3D Printing will have in the future.
