Cannibalism and the Chinese Body Politic: Hermeneutics and Violence in Cross-Cultural Perception




    One question that always stymies us–that is, why cannot people eat people?

    Zhu Yu

  1. Rumors of cannibalism began to circulate over the internet during the early
    months of last year (2001), typically accompanied by graphic photos of a Chinese
    man calmly chewing on what appears to be a dismembered human fetus (see Figure 1),
    together with sensational commentary along the lines of:



    What u are going to witness here is a fact, don’t get scared !” It’s
    Taiwan’s hottest food…” In Taiwan, dead babies or fetuses could be
    bought at $50 to $70 from hospitals to meet the high demand for grilled
    and barbecued babies … What a sad state of affairs!! (“Fetus”)

  2. These internet rumors began to achieve a modicum of legitimacy in
    mid-March, when
    the small Malaysian tabloid Warta Perdana fed a growing
    international controversy in reporting that a certain Taiwanese restaurant was

The Pennsylvania Society
Date(s) Second weekend in December
Frequency annual
Location(s) New York City
Inaugurated 1899

The Pennsylvania Society is an annual weekend retreat for Pennsylvania’s politicians and business leaders held in New York City. It began during the late 19th century as a meeting of Pennsylvanians living in New York City who gathered annually beginning in 1899 to discuss events in their home state. As the first few meetings developed into an annual event, it morphed into weekend-long retreat where political networking and fundraising took place in New York’s finest clubs, restaurants, and hotels. The main event of the weekend is the “Pennsylvania Society Dinner,” which is sponsored by “The Pennsylvania Society,” a nonprofit corporation. In recent years the receptions hosted by lobbyists, political committees, and corporations have taken on increased importance.

It has been criticized because of its image as a stereotypical “smoke-filled room” where lobby groups gain

5 things to know as L.A. coronavirus mask order becomes law

If you are going to a grocery store, pharmacy or doing other essential shopping in Los Angeles, you need to be wearing a mask or face covering.

Beginning Friday, a new city order requires both shoppers and workers to wear a face covering.

It’s the latest effort by the city to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. The stay-at-home order has already closed nonessential businesses as well as many beaches, trails and recreation centers.

Here are five things to bear in mind:

1. The idea is to protect both customers and workers

California has been under stay-at-home orders for several weeks, and that limits trips to essential business like food shopping, doctor’s appointments and pharmacy trips.

There has been concern about the potential exposure to coronavirus at retailers such as supermarkets. Many markets have limited how many people can enter and tried to impose social distancing measures in lines.

Law enforcement and politicians clash over coronavirus orders

Despite warnings from health officials that social distancing and the wearing of face coverings can help flatten the statistical curve of nationwide infections, from Texas to Washington state a handful of officers sworn to uphold the law have in recent weeks publicly expressed their opposition to government regulations aimed at keeping citizens from transmitting the virus to others.

The latest high-profile protest by law enforcement came on Wednesday from the head of a Houston police union, who penned an open letter forcefully taking issue with a new order requiring face coverings by anyone in public over 10 years of age, with some exceptions. The order carries a $1,000 fine for noncompliance.

The police union president said that while officers support the public wearing masks, police departments do not have the resources to enforce “draconian” face covering orders. He also took issue with the way he believes such enforcement could negatively
