    Posted Jan 17th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com MY TAKE Back to China, via Pyongyang? "Don't be evil" may be Google's motto. But Google is also the company most often decried as bent on world domination. So what was its executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, doing last week in North Korea, a country with just 24.5 million people who are not connecting to the internet any time soon? ...

    ... with Alex Lo Volumes of ink have been spilled on North Korea's intentions to go nuclear and its troubled relationship with its bigger communist brother, China.

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com A new study by an advocacy group co-founded by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg finds, astonishingly, that foreign-born researchers were behind more than three out of four patents obtained by top US research universities last year.

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com MY TAKE I must go to Finland sometime- to tour and learn. As a society, it seems to get many things right. Its students rank top in the latest Global Index ... students can achieve the same skills without the grill and drill every day of their young lives, as they do here and in Korea. Japan and Singapore- two other all-study-no-joy countries- come after ...

    ... with Alex Lo Radio host Ng Chi-sum had to apologise for comments he made about the moon-bound Chang'e 1 satellite this week. The satellite has been broadcasting 30-plus Chinese songs to Earth, but the RTHK co-host of current affairs programme Open Line, Open View had claimed, wrongly, that not even one was from Hong Kong. 'How come there isn't a single song written ...

  7. Naturally outraged

    Posted Jul 16th 2005, 12:00am by Susan Sprengeler

    ... with Alex Lo The motherland is glorious, but now and then she gets a bit hypersensitive and hysterical. Mainland science bureaucrats have apparently started a row with science journal Nature over a map of China it published in a supplement in November. The map, horror of horrors, did not show Taiwan. As the supplement was about the state of mainland science and its funding ...

    ... with Alex Lo 'It was once Europe's Hong Kong, an opening to the world for a huge hinterland- this one the Russian empire, not China- whose surging trade made it preposterously rich.' Curious historical analogy made in The Economist, comparing 19th century Odessa, the famous Black Sea port, to the Pearl of the Orient 'I wanted to try to get back together with my ...

  9. Hong Kong blind to China's renaissance

    Posted Jul 10th 2012, 12:00am

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com We don't like mainland Chinese. It's now very clear. By 'we' I mean Hong Kong Chinese, who are predominantly Cantonese speakers. We don't like our state leaders, who interfere in our affairs and undermine our core values like the rule of law, civil liberties and the aspiration for full democracy. We don't like rich ...

  10. Perseverance proves the best medicine for jailbird 'Foon-foon' Yip

    Posted Sep 15th 2007, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... with Alex Lo The prison authority is far more humane than you might think and seems ready to provide Chinese medicine if a prisoner so desires, that is at least if you are one-time kingpin Yip Kai-foon (pictured). Paralysed from the waist down after being shot by police in 1996 and suffering from chronic pain, Yip was recently attended to by several Chinese medical practitioners ...
