    National Security Agency director Keith Alexander said on Sunday that whistleblower Edward Snowden betrayed the trust of Americans and defended the broad surveillance programs as necessary to prevent another terrorist attack. As Snowden evaded an attempt on Sunday by Washington to have him arrested in Hong Kong, General Alexander told ABC's This Week: "This is an individual who is not acting, in my opinion, with noble intent ... What Snowden has revealed has caused irreversible and significant damage to our country and to our allies." Alexander said the NSA surveillance programs Snowden had disclosed to the Guardian were tightly overseen...

    As a newly married man in Singapore many years ago, my hairdresser once asked me when my wife and I were going to have our first child. I replied, like many people do even today, that it was too expensive to have a child and to bring one up. He said that people who were earning a fraction of what we were and living in a one-room flat were still able to have two children and bring them up, and so could we. It is a truism that we put up with hardships to do things we want to do...

    18 injured in Hong Kong mall after escalator reverses direction at high speed At least 18 people were injured Saturday afternoon when an escalator at a shopping mall of Hong Kong‘s Langham Place suddenly reversed direction and increased speed. Video footage shot by witnesses showed that an upwards escalator suddenly reversed and went downward at an obviously higher speed, leading to dozens of passengers losing their balance and tumbling down to the ground. Local media outlet Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) quoted an injured passenger as saying that the escalator was going “twice as fast.”

    A billionaire with links to the family of Xi Jinping was reportedly taken from his apartment in the Four Seasons in Hong Kong by Chinese police and taken to the mainland. Xiao Jianhua, one of China’s richest men, is currently in police custody on the mainland, the Financial Times and New York Times reported. He may be assisting with a graft investigation, part of the Chinese president’s sweeping campaign that critics say is more about consolidating power than tackling corruption. If Chinese police were involved in Xiao’s abduction from Hong Kong, it would appear to violate the former British colony’s...
  • Hong Kong to return Singapore's seized troop carriers, easing tensions

    Hong Kong said on Tuesday it would release the nine Singaporean armored vehicles it seized in November on their way home from military exercises in Taiwan, easing tensions between China and Singapore. After the troop carriers had been seized, Beijing, which regained sovereignty over the former British colony of Hong Kong in 1997, warned countries against maintaining military ties with Taiwan, which it views as a wayward province. Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong wrote to Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying requesting the return of the carriers, and Hong Kong said it would handle the matter in accordance with...

    The humble steamed bun is taking Hong Kong's culinary scene by storm - and scooping up awards along the way. May Chow, the owner of restaurant Little Bao, has just been voted Asia's best female chef by a panel of over 300 experts. The 32-year-old's restaurant serves what she calls Chinese burgers: steamed white buns filled with braised pork belly, fried chicken or fish. And there are even burgers for dessert, in the form of fried buns sandwiched with ice cream.

    A senior Chinese official said Hong Kong cannot attain independence in the current “one country, two systems” agreement. This accord promises autonomy and freedom for Hong Kong. China and Hong Kong established the agreement after Britain relinquished control of its former colony. Accordingly, China’s Hong Kong Macau Affairs Office chief, Wang Guangya, spoke to a news publication at length. ... Xi Jinping, China’s President, said the mainland supported Hong Kong’s moves to stamp out protests for independence. Nevertheless, Beijing controls Hong Kong in the end. And the language China uses to describe pro-independence efforts in both Hong Kong and Taiwan...

    More than half of all business professionals in two financial hubs in Asia are viewing the results of the U.S. election in a positive light, according to a survey conducted two weeks after Donald Trump emerged as the victor. The survey, conducted in the financial districts of Hong Kong and Shanghai by deVere Group, an international financial consultancy, found that 55% of the over 650 people interviewed for the study think that a Trump presidency will be positive for the global economy. Even so, over two thirds of those interviewed were surprised by the result of the election, with 32%...

    Yau Wai-ching is the youngest woman to be elected to Hong Kong's parliament - and she has been called many things, including: "radical", "goddess", "spy", "pretty" and "cancer cell". In the space of two months, the 25-year-old has become one of the most controversial politicians in Hong Kong - and is now pitted in a court battle against the Hong Kong and Chinese governments - even though she has admitted it could bankrupt her. Ms Yau and fellow party member Sixtus Leung won elections in September, gaining more than 55,000 votes between them. Ms Yau, a daughter of two civil...
  • Beijing’s Heavy Hand on Hong Kong

    11/07/2016 9:40:31 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 8 replies
    The Chinese government on Monday reinterpreted Hong Kong’s Basic Law to prevent two pro-independence lawmakers from taking seats in the Hong Kong legislature. Rather than let local courts handle the matter, Beijing intervened in unprecedented fashion, without a request from local authorities. Such heavy-handedness is certain to increase Hong Kong’s resentment of Chinese rule. Sixtus “Baggio” Leung and Yau Wai-ching were among six young activists elected to the legislature in September on platforms advocating local democracy and greater autonomy from Beijing. Some of the six support a vaguely defined “self-determination,” others a referendum on how Hong Kong should be governed...
