The reporter has sorted out the new thinking that Taiwan needs to have at this stage, which is in urgent need of reference.

【China】The limit of Shanghai people

Shanghai’s out-of-control epidemic prevention blockade has entered its third week (more than a month in some areas), and it is no longer a chaos. “Secondary disaster” is as simple as that. Let’s read together the shouting of the citizens of Shanghai with “Mrs. Maya” to understand the situation of disorder.

【Hong Kong】Say good morning

Au Jialin, a senior Hong Kong media person, was arrested by the National Security Department on the 11th, saying that he was suspected of committing “the crime of conspiracy to publish seditious publications”. Fortunately, he was released on bail on the 12th. Ou Jialin produced many excellent news programs on Hong Kong TVB and “Stand News”, which was forced to close at the end of last year.

【Herstory】Korean Ukrainian

This week’s Herstory is not so much a personal story as it is a history of migration of an ethnic group, condensed into this unique guest from Taiwan. The black-haired and yellow-skinned Shen Wusong is a Ukrainian of Korean descent. His ancestors lived in the former Soviet Union. During Stalin’s time, he was expelled from the Far East to Central Asia, and then moved to Ukraine. Today, he still embraces the identity of the Korean blood, but It is very different from the familiar Korean people in East Asia. Most importantly, the Ukrainian war once again caused them to experience turmoil, and Wu Song, who was studying as far away as Taiwan, was also inspired to explore more fringe shapes of identity. Zuozou once interviewed him about his feelings about the war in Ukraine. This time, through more personal interviews, I invite you to learn about the unique nation behind him and his family.

For creators, the deadline for submissions is a love-hate thing. It can stimulate production motivation and potential, but if you are a freelancer, you may procrastinate without supervision! … This “Category Café” in Tokyo, aware of the need of many creators to be “supervised”, came up with a business model that uses urging and rushing drafts as a selling point.

The behavior of “painting blackface” not only may consolidate the distorted impression of social reality, but also directly exacerbate the industry. racial inequality. Hollywood has long had the problem of finding white people to dress up as other ethnic groups. Hong Kong is almost a living copy of Hollywood’s color discrimination.
