法广: 传民政部长李立国贪2000亿网民炸锅

0

根据香港争鸣杂志12月号报道,今年10月分别遭到双规的中国民政部部长李立国和第一副部长窦玉沛,仅在福利彩票方面,就涉嫌卷入逾2千亿元(人民币,下同)的贪腐,报道引述消息指,仅李立国1人就包养了11个情妇,还预备了12本护照以策万全,可惜1本护照都用不上,已被双规。

大陆网民对李、窦两人贪污款项之巨大莫不沸腾不已,有网民不但批评大陆的福利彩票做假,甚至还讥讽“那些戴着面具去领双色球大奖的可能都是(李立国的)情妇”。

据报道,李立国一案,是中共十八大以来,首名在任期间落马的内阁部长,民政部的〝塌陷式〞腐败黑幕由此揭开。

报道指,经搜查发现,李立国在小金库开设了27个帐号,存款超过11.57亿元。李立国还持有美元20万元、欧元20万元、英镑25万、澳元50万万元、瑞士法郎50万元等。

在李的名下有5套住房,北京、天津、大连、海口、珠海各一套。

李立国还包养了11名情妇,自2005年7月至2016年7月,李立国通过挪用公款、侵吞彩票资金,送给11名情妇逾11亿2千470余万元。而且把15套在北京、天津、珠海的住宅送给其中9名情妇。

中国福利彩票中心是中共民政部的直属事业单位。据争鸣杂志报导,中央巡视组、审计署、监察部自2014年6月以来,查证、审计出25个省(区)直辖市福利彩票涉嫌作假、挪用、侵吞资金,数目达1700余亿元。

由此推算,在全国30多个省份中,民政部在福利彩票一项中的贪腐金额极有可能超过2000亿元。

网民对贪官从福利彩票贪得2000亿元莫不议论纷纷,“福利彩票造假,哈哈哈,好尴尬”、“一共11名情妇,15套房子送给其中9位!还有两位为什么那么可怜!太孤独了,就像没有拿金马奖的范冰冰”、“所以彩票真的都给领导中了,哈哈哈”、“2000亿,贪无止境啊。刚看到内蒙赤峰煤矿爆炸,32矿工遇难,这俩新闻不能一起看,否则气炸肺。我觉得贪官被抓后,国家不能还养着他们,应该给所有贪官带上矿灯,让他们挖煤赎罪,井口只需站俩持枪武警,谁也跑不了”、“还是那句话,一个能登月的国家还控制不了几个乒乓球(彩票开奖的号码球)么?”

除了插手彩票之外,民政部过去亦曾被指挪用救灾捐赠资金,2013年2月,当时民政部还召开全国民政系统反腐倡廉工作视频会议,当时民政部党组书记、部长李立国还装模作样的在会上要求,严肃查办贪污、挤占、挪用救灾救济、社会救助、社会福利、优抚安置、社会捐赠、福利彩票公益金等专项资金方面的案件。

You can now download over 300,000 books from the NYPL for free

There’s good news for all the e-bookworms out there. The New York Public Library released an app today that allows anyone with a library card (and an iOS or Android phone) to “borrow” any of the 300,000 e-books in the collection.

It’s called SimplyE and will allow you to read books on your phone, but beware, there might be a wait list for some popular titles, including the Game of Thrones series. (Check out the Harry Potter books, quick!) The online collection will continue to grow, and there are Kindle and web browser versions in development. But, for now, take a break from Pokemon Go and read to your digital heart’s content.

Qing dynasty textbook shows how Chinese people tried to learn English 150 years ago

0

If you think learning Chinese is hard now, how about mastering English pronunciation via Chinese characters in the mid-19th century?

Last week, a Chinese collector living in Chengdu showed off an old textbook that was apparently used to teach Chinese people to speak English during the late Qing dynasty (1644-1911). A note printed on the book reads, “Emperor Xianfeng’s 10th year of reign,” which would be 1860, Chengdu Business Daily reported.

The book contains helpful phrases such as, “You want cheap go buy other man,” “Tomorrow I give you answer” and “Very much this silk.”

Along with words of wisdom like, “Don’t stop half way and fail” and “Don’t answer at random.”

Above the English phrase is its meaning written in Chinese characters, meanwhile below the phrase is a series of nonsense characters that were apparently meant to help students phonetically pronounce the words above in English.

Obviously, China has come a long in way in 150 years. Earlier this summer, the city of Hangzhou published a pronunciation guide ahead of the G20 summit to help allow residents to greet foreign visitors. The “English made easy” booklet included 100 English phrases along with Chinese words accompanying each sentence which attempted to imitate the sound of the original English.

For instance, “Welcome to Hangzhou” became “wai-kan-mu tu Hang Zhou” and “Hangzhou, the most beautiful city in China” became “Hangzhou, mou-si-te, bu-you-te-fu si-ti yin qian-a.)

NY Times: Facebook Said to Create Censorship Tool to Get Back Into China

0

SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, has cultivated relationships with China’s leaders, including President Xi Jinping. He has paid multiple visits to the country to meet its top internet executives. He has made an effort to learn Mandarin.

Inside Facebook, the work to enter China runs far deeper.

The social network has quietly developed software to suppress posts from appearing in people’s news feeds in specific geographic areas, according to three current and former Facebook employees, who asked for anonymity because the tool is confidential. The feature was created to help Facebook get into China, a market where the social network has been blocked, these people said. Mr. Zuckerberg has supported and defended the effort, the people added.

多倫多大學發現 即使中國用戶身處海外 微信仍會政治審查發言

0

加拿大多倫多大學一項研究發現,大陸科網公司騰訊的即時通訊 App微信(WeChat),針對大陸用戶及海外用戶,採用不同的審查準則,而大陸用戶身處海外時,審查會更加嚴格。

多倫多大學 Citizen Lab近日發表研究〈一App兩制:微信在中國與境外採用不同審查機制〉(One App, Two Systems: How WeChat uses one censorship policy in China and another internationally)

研究指出,對於以大陸電話號碼註冊的用戶,微信會對其進行敏感字審查,即使該用戶之後身處海外,或改用海外電話號碼,審查仍會繼續。而使用大陸以外地區,如香港、美國等地號碼註冊的用戶,則不會受到審查。

研究亦指,過往,用戶在發言被屏蔽後,會收到訊息發送失敗的通知,但這項設定已悄然消失,用戶的發言若被屏敝,亦不會知道自己的發言事實上並無發出。(详情请点击下面链接)
