Air pollution policy making and social media in Beijing, 2011-2013
This article is by Johan van de Ven, whose undergraduate dissertation at Oxford University examined the effects of factors such as environmental movements, diplomacy and social media on air pollution policy-making in China. In a study conducted from June to December 2013, I quantitatively and qualitatively examined a variety of social media and mainstream media articles related to air pollution  and compared the results with government statements and policy making events, with the aim of answering the question: Was social media primarily responsible for government action on air pollution in China?

Apple Pay and China
The recent concerns of Apple Pay helping itself to more than one payment of a user’s registered card could be a big issue for China, where “money con men” are serious issues. Too often are there cases reported of people who have been tricked — and nearly bankrupted — by those con men. Apple finds itself in a very precarious situation in China. A recent hack, which involved its iCloud service in China, comes after it launched the iPhone 6 late, likely due to security concerns (not the concerns you’d think Apple’d be concerned about!). Having also being chased by Communist Party-dictated media in the annual 15 March “consumer awareness and rights gala”, the last thing Apple would probably want to do is to rub more consumers the wrong way — by emptying their bank accounts more times than they gave Apple authorisation to do so. China’s “card world” is also hopelessly outdated. The sight of dot-matrix printers taking a long time to finish the printing of a receipt is not something that i...
