China should worry less about old enemies, more about ex-friends - Chaguan
Rather than hawks scheming to contain China, jumpy nationalists should be worrying about a different group: Americans and Europeans who were once advocates of engagement, but have been disappointed by illiberal, aggressive choices made by Chinese rulers.

Former Student Boots Riley's 'Sorry to Bother You': 'Anti-Capitalist Parable with Flair and Bite'
THE INDEPENDENT (LONDON) -- Riley fits snugly within the definition of artist-activist. It’s a draw he’s felt since childhood. He was born in 1971 in Chicago, to parents who had met during a student-led strike at San Francisco State University. His father volunteered as a housing and welfare rights advocate and a car industry organizer before working as a civil rights and criminal-defense lawyer.

His parents moved to Oakland, California, when Riley was six and by the time he was 15 he had joined the radical Progressive Labor Party. In 1991, he co-founded The Coup, acting as primary lyricist. Their work was deliberately confrontational, with album titles such as “Kill My Landlord” (1993) and “Pick a Bigger Weapon” (2006), although he recently dismissed the former as “a pamphlet on tape,” adding he’s now more interested in speaking to audiences who don’t directly identify with his politics.

Which is exactly what “Sorry to Bother You” sets out to achieve, aided by a cast of recognizable faces as Tessa Thompson and Armie Hammer also star. The film takes the familiar tropes of dystopian fiction — corporate giants as sinister authoritarian forces, for example — and places them distinctly in today’s timeline. Riley’s point is that dystopia is now, and always has been.

Professor Jassen Todorov Is the Man behind National Geographic's Best Picture of 2018
STUFF (NEW ZEALAND) -- But photography is not the only award-winning aspect of his life, as Bulgarian-born Todorov is also a lauded concert violinist and teaches Music at the San Francisco State University in the U.S.

He said his love for photography came from yet another passion of his — flying planes.

“Music has a lot to do with structure and composition, colours and patterns, moods and characters — when I am looking at a photo, I am thinking about the same things,” Todorov says. “The aesthetics of an image is particularly important to me.”
