HONG KONG (Reuters) - Prince Wong was still in her mother’s womb when the Chinese government reclaimed control over Hong Kong from the British in the summer of 1997. She was born nearly three months later, on September 27, into what some here call the city’s “cursed generation.”FILE PHOTO: U.S. President Bill Clinton talks with Hong Kong pro-democracy leader Martin Lee during a bilateral meeting in Hong Kong, China, July 3, 1998.

After the Hong Kong government postponed the elections for a year, the United States imposed unprecedented sanctions on Hong Kong and Chinese officials. “I may not be there to see democracy coming to Hong Kong or coming to China, but it will come one day.

President Donald Trump is enacting new rules, regulations, and orders that it hopes will box in President-elect Joe Biden's administration on numerous foreign-policy matters. WASHINGTON (AP) — On its way out the door, the Trump administration is enacting new rules, regulations and orders that it hopes will box in President-elect Joe Biden's administration on numerous foreign policy matters and cement President Donald Trump's "America First" legacy in international affairs. Last week, the State Department's policy planning office released a 70-page China policy strategy document. The Trump administration had said it wasn't interested in extending the New START treaty unless China also joined, something Beijing has rejected. As the transition to the Biden administration approaches, those negotiations remain a work in progress.

REUTERS/Thomas PeterSHANGHAI (Reuters) - The head of the Tibetan government in exile has visited the U.S. White House for the first time in six decades, a move that could further infuriate Beijing, which has accused the United States of trying to destabilise the region. Lobsan Sangay, President of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), was invited to the White House to meet the newly appointed U.S. Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues, Robert Destro, on Friday, the CTA said in a press release. Tibet has become one of the areas of dispute between the United States and China, with relations between the world’s two biggest economies at their lowest point in decades. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Beijing in July of violating Tibetan human rights and said Washington supported “meaningful autonomy” for the region. Beijing officials have since accused the United States of using Tibet to try to promote “splittism” in China.

As the coronavirus pandemic began to rage early this year, the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach had a problem. “It was not possible.”But this month, the museum began erecting an installation by Mr. Cruzvillegas that fits perfectly with pandemic times. This impulse stems from years of experience with art therapy, which began growing in popularity long before the pandemic. Along with Bass staff and a Florida environmental consultant, Mr. Cruzvillegas planned the exhibition with drawings, many long, detailed emails and plenty of videoconferences, he said. The healing aspect, Mr. Cruzvillegas implied, is oblique, rather than direct.

In hand-to-hand combat around May, Indian and Chinese troops beat each other with sticks and stones — before better-armed soldiers arrived in June. India's leaders have also resisted China's efforts to pull India into other sorts of networks that China leads or dominates.

This law also permanently and fully finances the Land and Water Conservation Fund, founded during Lyndon Johnson’s administration in 1964, at $900 million per year. The Conservation Fund has supported 40,000 projects assisting parks, coastlines, monuments, deserts, forests, wetlands and wildlife in every county in the United States. It is subsidized not by taxpayers but primarily by fossil fuel companies engaged in offshore oil and gas drilling. But before the Outdoors Act, it rarely received what it was owed, partly because senators like Mr. Daines voted against it. I should just spend a week hanging around exotic Richland County, where Mr. Daines beat Mr. Bullock by 62 points.

The rivalry between China and the United States will give rise to threats to Beijing's political stability, a top Communist Party security official warned. "[We] must firmly safeguard the state's political safety, regime safety and ideological safety," the document said. Guo's statement made a rare explicit reference to the United States. In May, Chinese Defence Minister Wei Fenghe also singled out the United States, warning that US-China strategic confrontation had entered a high-risk period. "Certain countries try to divert domestic problems and hype up ideological confrontations, and suppress others in the name of religious freedom and human rights," wrote Yang, without naming the United States.

ReutersLONDON — TikTok has invited British lawmakers into its offices to review its algorithm after a parliamentary committee questioned the social media app's links to China's ruling Communist Party. "We do not censor content," Kanter told the committee Thursday on a video call that was broadcast online. "I would encourage you to open the app and search for Tiananmen Square, search for Tibet, you will find that content on TikTok." There's plenty of content that's critical of China," Kanter added.
