The arrival of Australia’s new government has set the stage for ministerial talks with China and overtures for easing tensions. But plenty still divides the two nations.

This is not a healthy way to have to grow up: 'There was no community that, as part of holding you accountable, made space for you to learn; no presumption that you could — and will — change. Who could survive adolescence like that?' thecut.com/article/cancel… via @thecut

Faludi on feminism, but could be so many issues where there's a blindness to class: 'Isn’t it good to fight the good fight on all fronts? Sure. But without a firm conviction about what’s most important, fighting one battle can mean surrendering another.' nytimes.com/2022/06/20/opi…

This is extraordinary work. Revealing video about how China's surveillance collects facial, voice, iris and DNA information to create profiles on citizens. Hard to imagine that this will remain unique to China. Muyi Xiao Isabelle Qian Paul Mozur 孟建國 Alexander Cardia nytimes.com/video/world/as…

Not sure what to make of this but it's clearly getting ugly. Pretty easy to figure out which side is leaking. Will be interesting to see what JNI 2.0 looks like. smh.com.au/business/compa…

'Beyond cash pledges, Beijing’s main card in the global South is intangible: the promise of opportunity and respect. There is no reason the United States cannot offer both to countries that have too often felt ignored.' foreignaffairs.com/articles/china…

Thanks but this is the definition I really love — that Australia found a word to condemn this attitude says a lot about the place. America has a lot of wowsers but we didn’t come up with this… because we’re still so puritanical!

Among the many reasons I love Australia… the seemingly endless opportunities to be wowed with childlike wonder. Here’s the latest source of a smile and a laugh:

For Father's Day, I'd like to talk about my relationship with my dad, Dr. Wang Bingzhang, who's been a political prisoner in the PRC for nearly 20 years now, all of them in solitary confinement.

The left wins in Colombia. After winning in Chile and
Mexico, and possibly soon in Brazil. If these leaders produce results, it could change regional dynamics for decades. But with a distrustful public and big economic obstacles, it's going to be tough. nytimes.com/2022/06/19/wor…

I've been wanting to write about Australia's linguistic tendencies for a while; very grateful to the Australian Dictionary Centre (ANDC) for giving me a chance. Tried to include a lot of examples in here, but one word I wish I'd found a way to include: Wowser.

“Gallup finds that 330m adults go at least two weeks without talking to a single friend or family member.” The loneliness trend started before Covid and has only gotten worse. If you’re not in that camp, rejoice. economist.com/by-invitation/…
