Chinese Surveillance

by Gary Oak » May 1st, 2021, 12:28 am

Chinese espionage is huge. They are constantly checking out Gary Oaks Corner as Bluefrost can attest. CSIS has also found that China doesn’t expect to have to pay Canadian Chinese to spy for them and CSIS has found that they don’t have to and will do it for free. Every foreigner in China has someone watching them. Chinese love gathering information and surveillance. Many Chinese come alive when they are up to something deceitful or sly. They also like to have hidden camera’s in hotels the own. Thanks for the information Reverse Flash. I know someone who will be very interested in this info. Chinese are usually surreptitious ( a word that I learned from the very interesting book on Chinese espionage Claws Of The Panda by Jonathan Manthorpe) so publicity is what they really don’t want.

A restaurant here in Vancouver have cameras that sends images and footages back to China.

A hot pot chain from China was found to have installed more than 60 surveillance cameras to monitor its staff and customers at one of its locations in Canada, with recorded footage sent back to mainland China, according to a news report.

A Vancouver branch of the popular Haidilao hot pot restaurant installed two cameras at each of its 30 tables at the request of the chain’s headquarters in China, India’s Sunday Guardian reported, citing restaurant manager Ryan Pan.

The surveillance cameras were part of Beijing’s social credit system and were used to “people track” and check if staff adhered to corporate standards, according to Pan.

Video footage was sent back to China, Pan said, adding that the reason for doing so was a secret, although he declined to further elaborate.

Originally from China’s southwestern province of Sichuan, Haidilao operates two outlets in Vancouver. One is located within walking distance of a dormitory Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei has rented for its temporary staff. It’s also less than 10 minutes from arrested Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou’s mansion, the report said.

Similar surveillance systems were also found in Haidilao outlets in Taiwan. Around 50 to 60 cameras were found near seats, tables and hanging from the ceiling in one Taipei outlet, while some larger outlets had up to 100 cameras, Apple Daily Taiwan has found.

Haidilao Taiwan on Tuesday dismissed the report about surveillance cameras found at the chain’s Vancouver location. It said the cameras in its Taiwan outlets were “image collecting devices” used to ensure the safety of customers. The company added that it would strictly protect the privacy of its customers but declined to comment on whether recordings would be sent to mainland China.

It was pointed out many years ago how China’s neighbours get along with China.

Get a general idea of DNA in a population you can design a virus better to kill them off.
The China virus is almost up to killing 500,000 Americans they say, but China says they can likely do better.

The actual numbers are only like 2% the CDC said, the Media lies about the numbers so it's 2% of 500,000, so 10,000 deaths maybe.

China becomes 1st nation to grow biological life on the Moon
These findings wil be interesting. I wonder wht else Chinese is doing there ?

China’s Chang’e-4 probe has successfully germinated seeds on the dark side of the Moon in a miniature, artificial biosphere, providing hope for the future of sustainable, long-distance manned space travel.

The probe conducted the first-ever soft landing on the dark side of the Moon on January 3 following a 20-day journey from Earth. En route, the craft was carrying cotton, rape, potato, arabidopsis (rock cress) seeds, as well as fruit fly eggs and yeast, kept in an artificial dormant state in a 7-inch-tall sealed container with air, water, and soil.

All plants were chosen because they are small but hardy plants that can grow in a confined, tough environment.

Also on New VIDEO shows Chinese probe roaming the ‘dark side’ of the Moon

The seeds only began growing once ground control singled to the probe to begin hydrating them and the cotton seed became the first-ever lunar sprout (plants have been grown on board the ISS, of course).

The cotton seeds were the first to sprout but the rapeseed and potato seeds have now also sprouted, the mission team spokesperson told a press conference Tuesday.

The plants are contained in a sealed container on board the lander creating a biosphere (an artificial, self-sustaining environment) which the Chinese government is hoping will be an early precursor to much larger scale projects that could one day feed and clothe long-distance astronauts as they journey through space in a sustainable way.

China’s People’s Daily called it “the completion of humankind’s first biological experiment on the Moon.”

“We have given consideration to future survival in space,” professor Xie Gengxin, the experiment’s chief designer, told the South China Morning Post.

“Learning about these plants’ growth in a low-gravity environment would allow us to lay the foundation for our future establishment of [a] space base.” ... seed-moon/

AlienClose Encounters of the Chinese Kind: Alleged 'Alien Skull' Displayed in Beijing
The UFO enthusiast, who acquired the skull from a private collector, claims that it could not be of human or any other terrestrial origin. Although the skull is similar in size to an average human cranium, it is said to have "two distinct layers."

Li Jianmin, Chinese sci-fi author and self-proclaimed UFO scholar, has revealed what he says is an alien skull.

The 55-year old amateur researcher announced his discovery at a seminar in Beijing last month, Global Times reports.

He said that he obtained the mysterious skull from a private collector who had purchased it from a street vendor in Inner Mongolia, an autonomous region in northern China. The collector was reading a book by Li when he came by a picture of a skull that resembled the one he had bought.

The collector was flipping through my novel when he discovered that the skull looked very much like the one in an illustration," Li explained.

He produced a 103-page study over the following four months to confirm the origins of the find. The author said that he conducted Raman spectroscopy, a technique analysing molecular vibrations, and used an atomic force microscope to compare his find with other alleged alien skulls discovered elsewhere.

However effective, these methods fail to provide cast-iron evidence that the skull came to our planet from outer space — something that a tried-and-tested DNA analysis could do. Li said he has yet to conduct DNA tests, due to their exorbitant costs. In his words, such an analysis would have a price tag of around 100,000 RMB (over $14,000).

Jianmin has met plenty of criticism on Chinese social media, but he insists that the skull is real. "I welcome questions and scepticism, but if you decide to challenge me, be sure to bring along evidence. ... ull-china/

This is something everybody on blogs should know as China has untold millions that they hardly have to pay and many will do it for free out of xenophobia.

How the Chinese Government Fabricates Social Media Posts for Strategic Distraction, not Engaged Argument

The Chinese government has long been suspected of hiring as many as 2,000,000 people to surreptitiously insert huge numbers of pseudonymous and other deceptive writings into the stream of real social media posts, as if they were the genuine opinions of ordinary people. Many academics, and most journalists and activists, claim that these so-called ``50c party'' posts vociferously argue for the government's side in political and policy debates. As we show, this is also true of the vast majority of posts openly accused on social media of being 50c. Yet, almost no systematic empirical evidence exists for this claim, or, more importantly, for the Chinese regime's strategic objective in pursuing this activity. In the first large scale empirical analysis of this operation, we show how to identify the secretive authors of these posts, the posts written by them, and their content. We estimate that the government fabricates and posts about 448 million social media comments a year. In contrast to prior claims, we show that the Chinese regime's strategy is to avoid arguing with skeptics of the party and the government, and to not even discuss controversial issues. We show that the goal of this massive secretive operation is instead to distract the public and change the subject, as most of the these posts involve cheerleading for China, the revolutionary history of the Communist Party, or other symbols of the regime. We discuss how these results fit with what is known about the Chinese censorship program, and suggest how they may change our broader theoretical understanding of ``common knowledge'' and information control in authoritarian regimes.

The government is, and many that support it, but the average Chinese just want to live, and coexist. I'm sure there, as is here that patriotism is in their heart over the Communist regimes.

When China is in control it isn't good for non Chinese at all. They want to take over everywhere but they are a very inhumane culture and would much prefer to live among nice people.

They can do that now so why are we not advancing mankind instead of wanting takeovers, and warring like barbarians.
China, Russia, The US, and Many other countries should be doing more together to help us reach the goal all mankind needs. Food, Water, Housing, Peace for all with respect for borders, language, and culture.

China’s cargo spacecraft docks with orbital laboratory for 1st time

China’s Tianzhou-1 space freighter has successfully docked with the Tiangong-2, the country’s orbital lab. The automatic procedure was the first in the nation’s fast-paced space exploration program.
The Tianzhou-1, China’s first robotic cargo spacecraft, was launched on Thursday evening from the Wenchang Space Launch Center in south China’s Hainan Province, Xinhua news agency reported.

The docking procedure was completed at 12:23pm on Saturday (04:23 GMT), the report cited the Beijing Aerospace Control Center as saying.

Two more docking procedures will be conducted as part of Tianzhou-1’s mission, including one meant to test a new fast-docking technology.

The ship has brought some six tons of cargo into space, including fuel for resupplying the space station and material for stem cell experiments.

Unmanned freighters are crucial to maintaining a permanently manned orbital station, which China plans to accomplish in 2022. The Tiangong-2 served as home to two Chinese explores during a month-long mission in October of last year, but is currently uninhabited.

China chose to develop an independent space program rather than take part in international cooperation on the International Space Station, which is dominated by the US and Russia, the world’s two leading space-faring nations. It is rapidly closing the technological gap, however. ... e-docking/

Wait a minute here ! What about Vietnams sovereinty ? What about Japans sovereinty ? Vietnam must know that if China is allowed to scam the South China Sea then it will focus on annexing Vietnam. China would be able to cut off Vietnams shipping and cut of the Mekong river.

‘Threatening & damaging’: Beijing hits out at US patrols in South China Sea

China says it respects the principles of freedom of navigation and overflight, but “opposes” when other states undermine its sovereignty using this pretext. The statement comes after a US aircraft carrier group began patrols in disputed South China Sea waters.
"China always respects the freedom of navigation and overflight all countries enjoy under international law," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily news briefing on Monday, as cited by Reuters.

"But we are consistently opposed to relevant countries threatening and damaging the sovereignty and security of littoral countries under the flag of freedom of navigation and overflight. We hope relevant countries can do more to safeguard regional peace and stability," the spokesman said.

The statement was China's first official comment on the latest US patrol mission. The US Navy made the announcement on its website last Saturday, stating that the strike group, including Nimitz-class aircraft carrier ‘USS Carl Vinson’, together with aircraft from the ‘Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 2’, and the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer ‘USS Wayne E. Meyer’ started “routine operations” in the South China Sea.

The deployment came a day after China completed war games with an aircraft carrier in the disputed waters and less than a week after Beijing issued a stern warning for the US to stay away from the area, stating that “China has indisputable sovereignty over the South China Sea islands and their adjacent waters.”

The US last conducted a similar freedom of navigation operation in the area in October, when it sailed the guided-missile destroyer ‘USS Decatur’ near the Paracel Islands, which are under Chinese control.

China slammed the October operation as “illegal” and “provocative,” but US officials denied wrongdoing, stating that America was exercising its right to sail through international waters.

Beijing has laid claim to nearly all of the resource-rich South China Sea, through which some $5 trillion worth of trade passes each year.

Yet Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam also claim parts of the waterway, which have abundant fishing grounds as well as oil and gas deposits.

The Spratly Islands, or Spratlys, comprising more than 750 islets, atolls, and reefs, have also been caught up in the multinational dispute, with the claimants having their own national names for the archipelago.

The United States has repeatedly criticized China's construction of man-made islands in the Spratly chain as well as the latter’s buildup of military facilities on these islets, voicing concern they could be used to restrict free movement in the area. China has brushed off the criticism, however.

Relations between the two countries were not eased after Donald Trump’s inauguration as president, with both Trump and James Mattis, the new US secretary of defense, vowing to protect main regional ally Japan in any territorial disputes it has with China in the nearby East China Sea.
