A newspaper article showed these images from Google Maps today. This one, in China, interested me. Does anybody know what these shapes are ? The tagline was this: " These rectangles, up to a mile long, can be seen from space near the Gansu province and Xinjiang, some less than 100 miles from Jiuquan, the headquarters of China's space programme " Thank you http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2116238/Google-Maps-madness-Face-Jesus-field-lake-blood-strangest-cloud-ever.html

I have asked this question to my teachers and some friends in university, but their answers are mostly personal or narrow. So , i am look for a more overall and objective answer for it.

Out in Naunquan, China the villagers use molten iron to celebrate instead of fireworks. The tradition dates back some 500 years when the blacksmiths of the day couldn't afford fireworks and did this instead. While there's only one color to work with, the effect is pretty stunning and a lot more in-your-face without, you know, melting your face off if you don't get too close.via Gizmodo

April 6th was a long night that would be followed by an even longer day. Hours stretched like taffy as the Airplane pulled me across time zones. I was on my way to the Shenzhen Maker Faire which was being put on by Eric Pan, the founder of one of the largest open sourced businesses I know. Eric is a visionary, and his vision to inspire more makers in China connecting them with a global maker movement through the concepts of openness, sharing, and innovation inspires me and hundreds others to come to Shenzhen to share in the first Maker Faire in China! Hours ago I was at Instructables cooking my Last Breakfast for the office and gaving my Last Hugs. Qarly, my new friend, had helped my stay up all night organizing my tickets and suitcase. She went with me to the Payless shoe store on her bike as I walked barefoot. Yes, I started my journey shoeless. I had traded in my Vibrams at REI for a large backpack so I could cram as many arduinos and 3D printers into it as possible before leaving to go spread the good words. Here are the good words as I see them right now: "It Can Be Done." Yes, with a solid mission, a relentless attitude and accepting being shoeless (or jobless, or hungry, or ...) it's possible to accomplish the things you dream. Boom, back in that tin can flying over the Pacific. My schedule starts with a trip to Hong Kong to meet up with instructable's member Prank. Alex Hornstein and I had recently completed an adventure in 3D printing called the Pocket Factory in which we traveled across America seeking the business models behind low cost 3D manufacturing. He is now back in east Asia being the revolutionary philosopher engineer he is. I land at 8pm and head out into the city of the future. Hong Kong is a city of millions, beautifully lit tall buildings, zippy public transportation, and the largest pay inequality in the world. Looking out the window I keep wondering if this is the rich part, or the poor. Then I was there. I made it to IFC - a gigantic mall in the heart of Hong Kong. The metro stop inside it is called "Hong Kong Station". Yep, shopping is big here. We hung out on the roof of IFC talking projects. Without giving too much away too soon let's just say Alex is on his way to revolutionize the micro solar industry. We took the familiar ferry route home and I spent the night organizing and updating the social world since I knew in a few hours I'd be in China... and in China, no one can hear you tweet. Before I knew it I had to be off! It was 6:20am (HK time) and the ferry leaves at 6:40, I had a long day ahead of me and I haven't slept yet. Holy crap! I ran and got right back on that ferry from Lama to the mainland. Passing all the tall buildings once again and rushed onto the MTR. As we sped along the Hong Kong landscape of tall towers slowly turned into green rolling hills and the people on the train spoke less and less english. I crossed the border into Shenzhen and it was there I met Ani, the Monk. What a beautiful lady! We had a great conversation involving LOTS of smiling, drawing and almost no words. She was from Hong Kong and we were now friends. We traded bracelets and now I have one more reason to learn Mandarin! I finally made it all the way to Xi Xiang, the metro stop which was walking distance to the Maker Faire! I was getting pretty excited, I had lugged all this stuff across the world, and finally I was going to meet the makers of China! After a long and potholed walk I finally made it to the gate where a nice young Chinese lady helped me carry my stuff, we walked down a long outdoor hallways at F518 the "First Experiential Sharing Space in China" which was filled with sculptures and art. Billboards around me advertised hip hop dance classes and robots peeped from the windows. I knew I was in the right place. Right near the entrence of the Maker Faire was a strange robot. It was the size of a small house and it served books. They have robot libraries in Shenzhen. Wow! The more I learn about this place the cooler it seems! The faire is a large three story space with a media space on the first floor where people can buy "chinese make" a magazine called Radio that has been teaching people how to make stuff since 1955. The publishers of this magazine are also the ones who do the translation for Makezine! The second floor is filled with long tables of makers, a huge hall filled with running robots, dancing droids, DIY laser 3D scanners, touchless IR interfaces, octocopter (no, not tacocopter) and all the awesome stuff you'd expect to see in San Francisco, except this is Shenzhen. There are makers everywhere! Upstairs there are people making clay figurines, another instructables user - Star - runs a workshop around Canidu (yes, you can do!), her company which makes an electronics learning tool. This movement is obviously global and the Shenzhen Maker Faire has pulled makers not only from all over China, but all over the world. Eric Pan, the founder of Seeed Studio employs 70 people through an open source project and through this faire has inspired hundreds. At the after party, you can really tell how proud Eric was to have brought amazing makers like Mitch Altman and David Li from the Shanghai hackerspace together. Eric has a new project in the works right now. He's soon to be a father! I can only imagine how proud he will be when baby Eric Pan picks up his first blinky LED kit. Now that's some serious making! +Bilal Ghalib PS. Eric in the last picture is not dead, only extremely exhausted!

Google Threatens To Quit China Over 'Spies' 10:05am UK, Wednesday January 13, 2010 Peter Sharp, China correspondent Google has threatened to pull its operation out of China, claiming cyber spies have penetrated the system. The internet giant said "highly sophisticated" attacks had been launched to hack into e-mail accounts of human rights activists in China and around the world. "These attacks and the surveillance they have uncovered - combined with the attempts over the past year to further limit free speech on the web - have led us to conclude that we should review the feasibility of our business operations in China," Google chief legal officer David Drummond said in a blog post. Chinese authorities said they were "seeking more information on Google's statement that it could quit China", the official Xinhua news agency said, citing a government official. The unnamed official from China's State Council Information Office also said: "It is still hard to say whether Google will quit China or not. Nobody knows." Google's threat came after it announced it would no longer censor search results in China. Searches on google.cn for the iconic photo of a man standing in front of a line of tanks in Tiananmen Square in 1989 found the image immediately, as well as results for other sensitive topics such as the Dalai Lama and the banned Falungong spiritual group. No company should be forced to operate under government threat to its core values or to the rights and safety of its users. Leslie Harris, of the Centre for Democracy & Technology Google said 20 other companies had been targeted including media, finance, chemical and technology sites. "Google has taken a bold and difficult step for internet freedom in support of fundamental human rights," said Leslie Harris, president of the US-based Centre for Democracy & Technology. "No company should be forced to operate under government threat to its core values or to the rights and safety of its users." At Google's offices in Beijing, human rights activists laid a bouquet of red roses and white lilies in support of the company. "We want to express outrage, but not at Google. Coming here is a type of support for Google," said IT worker Zhao Gang. "Google faces very strict and adverse conditions in China. Something we knew in our hearts is now out in the open. I believe it's a watershed moment for the internet in China this year." Google stressed that the decision to review its controversial operations in China had been taken by the company's US executives and not by staff in China. For some, it seems to be too little, too late considering the strict censorship the Chinese government enforces. However, by playing by the rules, Google was able to get its foot in the door and now has some potential leverage.

While my the results of my experiment were lackluster, it appear that a man in China has nearly perfected the technique.

My time was short, it seems my time is always short. Groggily I was pulled from bed the day after the Maker Faire. Spending the night at Eric's place was so wonderful, it was my first nights sleep since leaving America a few days earlier. We loaded Eric Pans car with gear and headed out to pick up a 3D printer. 3D printing technology is booming in the states, nearly every hackerspace in America has a Makerbot and design firms have Shapeways to turn to to get their rapid prototyping. But elsewhere in the world these things are still fresh! Sharing tools is something I love to do because you never know where people's creativity will take them. You never can know all the problems in the world, but all the people know all their problems! One of my missions then is to share low cost and open technologies to people I think can make awesome use of them! The night before after the Shenzhen Maker Faire all the Makers were invited to a gathering. Beer, frogs on skewers and peanuts were all provided free of charge. We ate, drank, wheeled and dealed. Wiess Tech is a filament company in Shenzhen and they have started noticing that more and more of their customers were 3D printers. Especially DIY 3D printers. So they've begun to make Makerbot replicas with some modifications. And there I was - I wanted a 3D printer to bring with me to Beirut and they wanted… Well, I wasn't sure. The language barrier between us was strong. Somehow Eric and I convinced them that it would be a good idea to give me a machine, and perhaps I'd pay them back when I got to the states. At this point I was at $244 dollars and dropping and I couldn't even afford the incredible hackerspace price the company was offering of $500 dollars! They agreed, and that's how I found myself rushing off to their head quarters the next morning before catching my ship. But first. We must go to Seeed Studio to buy a cup of coffee from the robotic tweeting (QQ) coffee machine in their break room. Hahaha! We headed out to Wiess Tech and on the way there we drive by construction zone after construction zone. Aparently Shenzhen didn't exist 30 years ago, and now you can still see the signs of a rapid expansion. Everything here is growing at an incredible pace, and apparently even maker culture. We arrive at Wiess HQ, which is housed in a 30 story complex decked out with multiple confusing entrances, cafeterias and dual elevators for the odd and even numbered floors. After spending a bit of time wondering how to get to floor 22 and circling the building, we found ourselves face to face with a small crew of about 8people. A few people managing papers, a secretary, some of the marketing team, and one guy sitting at a table putting together Wiess Tech versions of the thingimatic. After speaking with them we find that they also sell a machines based around the Reprap project, one of the earliest open 3D printing projects and have in the works a few models of their own designs. I'm excited to see how Weiss Tech bootstraps itself off of open sourced designs and starts producing their own versions! I hope to see a whole new generation of better, faster and cheaper machines that stay open! Go Weiss Tech! Heading out to take a 3D panorama from their deck Eric rushes and tells me that my ship leaves in 20 mins and that the time is now. After an awkward moment or two talking about paypal and me giving them advice on staying open we undo all their packing (too bulky) throw the machine into my luggage and run. In the car Eric and I discuss the future of Chinese makers. It really seems this is just the start of something much larger. It's an exciting time, his company is building great products, more Chinese companies are looking at open source technologies and more people are calling themselves makers. Perhaps it's through Maker culture China will be able to become more than the King of manufacturing, but also participate in producing quality designs and solving serious problems. Leaving China, the baggage handlers on the ferry were rough handling Adriana, my 3D printer, and it really cut deep. But as I watched Shenzhen bay slowly recede, I knew the next time i came back, again, everything would again be different. This is the pace of China and yet it seems softened by the fog falling over the rolling green hills. +Bilal Ghalib

Long-time friend of Instructables James Powderly of GRL, FFFFFAT LAB and Throwies fame is currently reported to be held by the Chinese Government for over 24 hours without further word for planning a pro-Tibet LASER Tag event in Beijing. "James is proud to have been kicked out of the Synthetic Times new media art exhibition in Beijing because he wouldn't censor his little art project. James wonders why organizations like the MoMA, Parsons, Eyebeam, Ars Electronica and many other arts and cultural institutions around the world who claim to support free speech and expression would participate in a show like this. But they did! It was after being kicked to the curb by the show's curator that James connected with Students for a Free Tibet and decided he would go to China anyway and do what he though was right in support of Tibet, Taiwan, free speech and the people of China. James lives, if indeed he is alive, in the County of Kings, Brooklyn, and teaches at the Communication Design and Technology program at Parsons the New School for Design.

There are constant reports of high lead levels in many toys, as well as new findings that lead is an even more dangerous neurotoxin than previously believed. Does anyone have the chemical background to devise a simple home test for lead levels in toys? My thoughts are that a number of toys would be place in a bathtub, and a leeching agent would be added which would dissolve some of any lead present. The dilute solution in the tub would then be tested by a standard home water supply lead test. This could possibly be a great service... Thanks!

You might have got in the news ages ago but for those in other countires:The company Huawei together with some of the subdivided companies got involved in the trade war between China and the US.In terms of consequenses for the users we certainly will see that there won't be any new devices getting on the local markets until this disaster got resolved.For existing users or those buying stocked items from before the ban took place the future might be not as good as previously thought.Firmware updates might not be allowed anymore, meaning if Huawei has a usable update for another region that could work it is a manual process that might render the device into a brick.Google already stopped Playstore support for many devices and there won't be any Google licinsed new devies anymore either if they get their will.Gives regional selling a whole new meaning and finally allows the full use of firmware checks and more to keep devices with addded but unlicensed Google services fully out.How did it come to the ban?The claim is that Huawei can already be used by the Chinese government to spy on users or might be to in the future.What gave it a feed for the press was the phones, the ban however is more aimed on backbone infrastructure.Collateral damage so to say.A bit like taking someone without any proof of wrongdoing and to lock him away.Oh, wait that is already a common thing...The funny thing is the same that Huawei now uses in a court claim against the US:Every hardware used for the internet in any way can have security issues.Otherwise we would not need firmware updates to fix security issues.What's the big deal then? Well, that is exactly the point Huawei is trying to make in court now.The problem behind the band and now issues worldwide is however realted to something we might not really consider at a first glance: The new 5G network for our mobile phones and other mobile devices.Once some "hackers" exposed and excessive list of security flaws in the 5G network two things became evident way too quickly:A) The same agencies that signed up on the security of the network got exposed for already impementing them into their surveillance systems.B) The securtiy flaws are so severe that anyone with access to the backbone infrastructure could basically check whatever happens on any part of the network, down to the user level and possible device control through remote services.The first is not a deal breaker as the agencies got exposed for abusing the rights of people since they exist.The second means it is no big deal to create patches for the flaws that can be implemented through firmware updates.And that is exactly the concerns of those spying on us (legally they claim).To implement the fixes you need to provide the information on the flaws and the exact way to fix them - which means you provide the information required to get acess like before even with the updates rolled out.Huawei provides everything from end user devices (phones and such), over routers and modems to the hardware required by your ISP or those in charge of the worldwide backbone infrastructure.With the ban it is now possible to get the 5G network happening with "Made in the USA" hardware only.Or, of course hardware from "trusted" companies outside the US.Brings nice and decent boost for the local harware manufactures while hiding the fact that the 5G network in the current form is more like a Swiss chesse - fully holes in terms of security.There are now claims however that say those agencies that signed up on the security "overlooked" the security flaws with the intention of having a future option against China in the trade war.Too bad the security flaws were not kep secret by those "hacker" paid to confirm the safety, instead they made an almost public event to present them.Otherwise the whole thing would have gone totally unnoticed by the world.And if such a move ever showed one thing than it is loyalty and only those countries with strong ties to the US jumped onto the ban while other either say they don't see concerns or simply wait until the concerns are proven to be real before replacing all the expensive gear with US products.If you followed the trade war a bit you realised it already thing with global consequences.Entire supply chains struggle or collapse already.Jobs are lost, economies suffer.And what was already a problem for countries outside Chinese and USA territories is now affecting the big guys as well.The world depends on fair trade.This fair bit is now devided by two countries deciding on what the rest of the world has to pay.What started with the refusal to take our rubbish was played out like a fight between two rival sibling below school age.Things are said and tossed around with no care about what happens as a result.Only problem is the toys are not stying in a kids room, the toys are things in other countries.The scratches are not a kids skin, they are in the hip pockets of everyone.Except for a few things both countries could do fine without each other that is what trading is for.But both countries want full control about everything with no care about how this affects other countries and people in the world.Prices are going up for everything as result.Will there be a winner, will there be an end, how might it end?There is only one winner and this winner is already clear, or make that two: Big companies and banks.Only those with a supply chain affected by the trade war will struggle to compensate and adjust to the changes.We just pay a higher price and have to accept it.Unless both sides give in and act like adults instead of toddlers the only possible end is once one side has fully control again.The most likely end would be a great devide between the US and China and a s result China getting an even stronger focus on being better than the rest of the world without involving it.Trillions of Dollars are wasted every year just because those two have to make copies of everything the other onew does wihtout ever really working together to more than half the costs.Not mention the money saved on no longer needing to spy on each other.Just take the moon, the USA needs to get back up there fast, China has fixed plans and India is not far behind either.Russia is stitting back and doing a bit here and there for everyone to be included without wasting too much money.If you check the territories in Antartica you will notice there is not that much Chinese presence.That bit of our world is appearntly only for peaceful exploration, despite the ever present military.Now what about the moon again ?China already managed several times to sent probes not only to the moon but also onto the moon - without any of it being detected by the US.Only once China presented images and videos it becae evident that their space program is much further ahead than previously thought.Pretending to only help the poor civilians aorund the south pole is a thing you might get away with.Not so much however when it comes to territories on the moon.If you can estabilsh a scientific base on the moon or estabilsh moning operations than how hard would it be to do the same with a military installation?And from up there even throwing rocks down to earth would do enough damage if the rocks are big enough...Nw, if you can't trsut a a space travelling country here on earth: How can you trust them to behave on the moon where really no one can go have a quick check on things?It is not like anyone would go for a quick drive to next outpost if it means risking your life every meter of the way.The consequences of this useless trade war are not only globally but start to affect the lifes everyone in the modern world.And did anyone ever consider that the atmospheric distortions are a problem for a telescope when watching the moon but not so much the other way around?Using the same digital telescope a pixel on the moon circles about 50 meters.Thanks to the long distance from out atmosphere to the moon.On the other hand the same pixel on earth, if watched from the moon, would only move around a few cm at the worst of times!
