Peter Chan’s “American Dreams in China”
If Aaron Sorkin penned Chinese movies glamorizing the rise and fall of entrepreneurs in the 90s, then American Dreams in China surely would have been the jewel in his crown. In just 10 days, Dreams became the largest current-grossing blockbuster in China, generating nearly 51 million USD—leading to its surreptitiously mentioned subtitle: “The Chinese Social Network”. Alas, Sorkin had no role in the creation of Dreams; instead, Hong Kong celebrity-director Peter Chan pays just a little more than a comfortable homage to Sorkin’s Zuckerberg biopic. Dreams is loosely based around the back story of the founders of New Orient Education & Technology Group, an English-language firm that IPO’d in the US in 2006. New Orient is re-titled New Dream, and the three protagonists—Meng Xiaojun, Cheng Dongqing and Wang Yang—are respectively played by veteran actors Deng Chao, Huang Xiaoming and Tong Dawei. Dreams then becomes a story about what young Chinese men are willing to do to achieve success and the lechery, hardship, and seduction that comes with it.

Chinese regulators blame brokerage’s computer for stock frenzy

The wild swings in Chinese stock prices last Friday was apparently caused by a design flaw in a brokerage’s computer system.

Chinese regulators blame brokerage’s computer for stock frenzy.
China’s main market index had spiked nearly 6 percent in 3 minutes before dropping back, as a result of an avalanche of orders from Everbright Securities, said a report by Associated Press on Sunday.

According to the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) in a statement, its investigators concluded the brokerage’s software design flaws had failed to limit orders and prices, and there was no evidence suggesting human error.

Everbright’s orders had caused trading volume to rise over 50 percent above Thursday’s level. Its orders totalled 23.4 billion yuan (US$3.7 billion), with completed transactions nearly 7.3 billion yuan (US$1.2 billion).

Prices of major companies such as PetroChina, Sinopec, ICBC, Bank of China and other blue chips shot up to their maximum daily limit of 10 percent before dropping back.

The CSRC said there were obvious faults in internal control and systems, and Everbright would be severely dealt according to the law after investigations are complete. The authorities noted this was the country’s first such incident, and added while an extremely isolated case it exposed gaps in the system.

Just last year on the New York Stock Exchange, a botched software upgrade by brokerage Knight Capital Group triggered a flood of orders which resulted in a US$440 million loss.

Chinese zoo angers visitors by passing off hairy Tibetan mastiff dog as lion


STORY HIGHLIGHTS
Hairy dog displayed as “African lion” in Chinese zoo, state media reports
The cage at a zoo in Louhe, Henan Province, contained a Tibetan mastiff
Zoo staff said the dog was placed in the enclosure for “security concerns”
The zoo also had a dog on display in a wolf enclosure, and a fox presented as a leopard



Hong Kong (CNN) — A zoo in China has angered visitors by trying to pass off a hairy dog as a lion, Chinese state media reported.
A visitor, surnamed Liu, told the state-run Beijing Youth Daily she discovered the fraud when visiting a zoo in a park in Louhe, a city in the central province of Henan, with her son.
As they approached the cage marked “African lion,” they were shocked to hear the beast inside emit a bark.
It was a Tibetan mastiff — a large, hairy breed of dog.
"The zoo is absolutely trying to cheat us," Liu said. "They are trying to disguise dogs as lions."

Other species in the park were similarly mislabeled, the newspaper reported, with another dog in the wolf cage, and a white fox on display in the leopard enclosure.
The head of the park’s animal department, Liu Suya, told CNN that the animals had been substituted for various reasons, and would be back in their rightful place soon.
The lion and leopard had both been removed for breeding, she said, with the Tibetan mastiff placed in the lion’s cage temporarily “due to safety concerns.”

Similarly, the dog had been placed in the wolf enclosure to breed a hybrid wolf-dog, she said. “We’re not doing it out of shortage of funds,” she said.
The substitute lion has drawn ridicule on Chinese social media, with one commenter describing the situation as “absurd.”
"If this works why would people even bother to go to the zoo!" wrote Guohebaxiaoma. "Children will cry out ‘look a lion came out!’ at the sight of Tibetan Mastiff or ‘look it’s a rat!’ seeing snake on the street…This is totally absurd!"
Yidongdexulaoshi said: “This time you’re lucky. Because perhaps next time you will find that all the animals in the zoo are played by the faculty. LOL.”
"It’s way too ironic. Why doesn’t the zoo simply just put the zookeeper in a cage with the sign "Gorilla" on its gate," Lanseyapingningliuxunqing added.
