Cyber-dissident Liu Xianbin freed after nine years in prison

His release is not a sign of any liberalisation or recognition of his innocence. His sentence was simply reduced.”One of the founders of the Sichuan wing of the outlawed China Democracy Party, Liu was arrested in Sichuan on 19 June 1999 after posting various articles online criticising the government and the Communist Party’s policies.He said after being released that he felt well, mentally and physically, despite spending nine years and four months in detention. He said he became the prison’s teacher and it was largely for this reason that his sentence was commuted three times, resulting in his release today.In a separate development, the eight-year prison sentence imposed on cyber-dissident Li Zhi in December 2003 for being in touch by email with China Democracy Party leader Xie Wanjun has been reduced to seven years after he paid 200,000 yuan (23,000 euros). He is therefore now due to be freed in 2010.When issuing its verdict in 2003, the court mentioned that information provided by Yahoo! Hong Kong Ltd and Sina Beijing helped to convict Li by enabling the authorities to confirm that he had an email account with them.A total of 49 cyber-dissidents are currently detained in China, making it the world’s biggest prison for Internet users. Another cyber-dissident, Chen Daojun, was yesterday charged with “separatism” in connection with three articles he posted online, one of referring to the March 2008 riots in Tibet. He faces a possible five-year jail sentence. Organisation China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prisonlast_img read more

Battle of the pies in parallel World Cup

first_imgDon’t despair if England’s football team falters in the World Cup. Its steak and ale pie is likely to prove an easy winner in the Pie World Cup, which pits 32 ‘national’ pies produced by the Square Pie company against each other.Square Pie’s last Pie World Cup saw the England entry — steak and kidney — romp home ahead of its rivals, which included runner-up France’s beef bourguignon, measured by sales. This time, Square Pie has assessed the steak and ale pie assigned to England as the four-to-one favourite, followed by the chorizo sausage pie of Spain at seven-to-one and Brazil’s feijoada at 12-to-one.The London-based Square Pie will sell the 32 national pies at its five London shops on the days on which the corresponding teams play their World Cup matches. At the end of the contest, the football Pie World Cup winner will be the pie which has sold in the greatest numbers throughout the tournament. Square Pie will still sell its usual pies on match days and says that it will simplify the logistics of producing 32 new and often exotic pies for such a short period by limiting the number of each pie it makes. The stress of the last Pie World Cup saw the exit of one working baker, says the company, which was formed in November 2001. Square Pie says that it makes its pies – and other products such as mashed potato – daily without artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives. Meanwhile, a recent online survey of more than 2,500 fans of the Barclays Premiership football league, found that UK football fans ate an estimated 225 million pies in and outside England’s football grounds last season. Fans ate an average 17.5 pies per season and had bought from the same outlet for an average 3.3 years, said Barclays.It also found that 20% of fans bought their half-time pie as “part of a superstitious ritual”. The most popular pies were those sold at Wigan Athletic, followed by those at Newcastle United and then Manchester United.Steak pies were the most popular pies, garnering 29% of fans’ votes, followed by meat and potato (24%), chicken and mushroom (15%), cheese and onion (4%) and vegetable (3%).The Pie World Cup results can be followed on Square Pie’s website at www.squarepie.comlast_img read more

Calorie counter

first_imgGod bless the Daily Mail, which pauses in its project of dividing the food chain into things that give you cancer and things that prevent cancer, to give you the tale of a bad food that’s good for you specifically Mark Haub, who lost two stone in 10 weeks on a diet of cream cakes and sugary foods.The professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University also found his ’bad’ cholesterol dropped by 20%, as part of an experiment to prove that pure calorie-counting matters more than the nutritional value of the food when it comes to weight loss. Daily calorie intake was cut from 2,600 to less than 1,800 by replacing meals with a mini-sponge cake with cream filling every three hours. This was supplemented by crisps, sugary cereal and biscuits, a double espresso, a multivitamin pill, a protein shake and vegetables. “It may be an issue of portion size rather than total removal,” he said.I hope the Department of Health, in its Responsibility Deal on calories (see pg 8), is taking note… so long as they don’t forget to cross-check their facts with the Daily Mail archive, which has previously suggested that biscuits and cakes cause cancer, while coffee and cereal cause and prevent cancer.
