"My message to the Chinese government is 'free Tibet,'" Kanter said. His latest comments prompted an almost immediate backlash in China, with fans denouncing Kanter and the Celtics on Chinese social media. "Free Tibet" on the shoes worn by Enes Kanter at Madison Square Garden in New York on October 20. The backlash highlights the league's struggle to walk the fine line between allowing social justice activism for its players and appeasing its massive — and lucrative — Chinese market. Shaquille O'Neal , a retired icon of the sport, expressed support for Morey and for free speech, "one of our best values here in America."

Nicholas Burns, U.S. ambassador to China nominee for U.S. President Joe Biden, speaks during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee confirmation hearing in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021. Sarah Silbiger | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesPresident Joe Biden's nominee to be U.S. ambassador to China, Nicholas Burns, took a tough line on dealings with China at his Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday, saying "genocide in Xinjiang," abuses in Tibet, and bullying of Taiwan must stop. Some lawmakers, including some of Biden's fellow Democrats, have called for Washington to revisit the decades-old policy, which takes no position on Taiwan's sovereignty. "It is, I think, appropriate that Ambassador Burns was appointed to this position," said Senator Jim Risch, the committee's top Republican. And I think we ought not to exaggerate their strengths, or underestimate the strengths of the United States," Burns said.

Sep 27, 2021; Canton, MA, USA; Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter (13) during Celtics Media Day in Canton MA. A spokesperson for the NBA in China did not respond to an emailed request for comment, and the Boston Celtics did not respond to a request for comment sent outside business hours. A Weibo fan page for the Boston Celtics with over 650,000 followers wrote that it would cease updating its social feed after Kanter's tweets. On the Celtics' official Weibo page, more than 100 commentators left comments on Thursday criticising the club and Kanter, with some calling for him to be sacked. After Kanter did this, I won't support the Celtics team a single day any longer.

Boston Celtics games were abruptly pulled from the Chinese internet on Thursday after a center on the team, Enes Kanter, said on social media that the country’s leader, Xi Jinping, was a “brutal dictator,” citing his government’s repressive policies in Tibet. The incident could spell fresh trouble for the N.B.A. The league has millions of devoted fans there but has also just spent two years mending its image in the country after a Houston Rockets manager tweeted support in 2019 for pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. That tweet, by Daryl Morey, now an executive with the Philadelphia 76ers, was quickly deleted, though not before setting off an uproar in China. Sponsors in the country severed ties and the state-run broadcaster stopped airing games, leading to financial fallout that the league estimated cost it hundreds of millions of dollars.

Human rights advocates have termed China's treatment of Uyghur Muslims in its Xinjiang region "genocide," a characterization that China rejects. At his Senate confirmation hearing, Burns, 65, a career diplomat and former U.S. ambassador to NATO, also said Washington is correct in adhering to its "one China" policy on Taiwan, but also right to oppose actions from Beijing that undermine the status quo and that the United States has "enormous latitude" to deepen security assistance.

China's treatment of minorities has come under increased scrutiny in the run-up to the games, scheduled from Feb. 4-20. Activists protested at Ancient Olympia on Monday, where the torch lighting ceremony was held. Arkin said more than 40 members of her family had either disappeared or were interred in camps. "We are in Athens to tell the international community that the Olympic Games are being handed over to a country actively committing a genocide," she told a news conference in Athens. On Monday three activists unfurled a banner reading 'No Genocide Games' and a Tibetan flag at Ancient Olympia, while a day before a protest was held at the Acropolis in Athens.

Opinion | James Bond Has No Time for China
  + stars: | 2021-10-16 | by ( Ross Douthat | ) www.nytimes.com   time to read: +2 min
The final James Bond outing for Daniel Craig, “No Time to Die,” also marks a notable milestone for Bondian geopolitics: The franchise just completed a five-movie arc with a single lead actor, and amid all the globe-trotting and intrigue you would barely know that China existed. In fairness, the Cold War-era Bond movies were not obsessed with Russia, serving up stateless supervillains rather than Soviet adversaries in many of his outings. But the reality of Russian power was part of the fabric of the series. The same actor showed up as the head of the K.G.B., for instance, in five Bond movies in the 1970s and ’80s. The Asian pop culture that has increasing influence on America is mostly Korean and Japanese, while China — despite all its power, despite our economic intertwinement, despite its crucial role in our political and now our public-health debates — remains more a domain for experts, its internal life and culture more distant and opaque.

Ahead of COP26, Vatican calls for action on climate change

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican hopes a meeting where world religious leaders will take a common stand on the environment can "raise ambitions" on what can be achieved at next month's U.N. Monday's day-long event, organized by the Vatican, the United Kingdom and Italy, brings together about 40 faith leaders of the world's major religions and scientists, from about 20 countries. Speaking in a telephone interview with Reuters on Sunday, Gallagher said the Vatican hoped the direct appeal to COP26 leaders would have the same effect as the pope's landmark 2015 environmental encyclical "Laudato Si" (Praised Be). The pope, Welby and Bartholomew issued a joint appeal to members of their Churches last month to "listen to the cry of the earth." "Translating commitment into action is the great problem and we all know that our political leaders are very good at promising and very good at talking but the action that we need now is urgent and it is enormous," he said.

LinkedIn is taking down journalists' accounts in China over content that offends the government. A LinkedIn spokesperson told Insider that the company "respects the laws that apply to us, including adhering to Chinese government regulations for our localized version of LinkedIn in China. For members whose profile visibility is limited within China, their profiles are still visible across the rest of the globe where LinkedIn is available." And Axios reporter Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian, who reports on China, said LinkedIn told her her Summary section is where the offending content was housed. Bruno told Insider that he is "dismayed that an American tech company is caving to the demands of a government intent on controlling access to information."

When Bill Burke retired from practicing corporate law in 2003, he craved an activity that would indulge his passion for travel and challenge him mentally and physically. He had already been hiking in the mountains around his home in Costa Mesa, Calif., and learning the art of alpinism had more appeal than tennis or golf, he says. He attended a high-altitude climbing course, upped his training and within a year was peak bagging mountains around the world. By age 67, he had climbed the highest mountain on every continent, including Mount Everest twice. Today, he is one of the most respected mountaineers in the world and even has a peak near the Nepal-Tibet border named for him.

Lithuania told people to trash their Chinese-made phones "as fast as reasonably possible." It said some phones, like Xiaomi's Mi 10T 5G phone, can censor terms like "democracy movement." The feature is turned off in the phones in the EU but can be turned back on remotely, it said. "Our recommendation is to not buy new Chinese phones, and to get rid of those already purchased as fast as reasonably possible," Lithuania's deputy defense minister, Margiris Abukevicius, told reporters on Tuesday, Reuters reported. The report did not say where the feature could be turned on, or by whom.

Impressions of hands and feet that appear to have been made by two children about 200,000 years ago may be the earliest work of human art, according to an international team of geologists and archaeologists. But if they are works of art — even art made in play — then they are more than 100,000 years older than the earliest-known cave paintings. They are also some of the earliest handprints found anywhere in the world, although some known footprints are older. “Hand prints are relatively rare because there is simply less opportunity to leave behind a handprint during routine activities,” he said. Zhang et al / Science BulletinThe motif of the human hand links the prints at Quesang with later cave paintings.
