The famous Mogao Caves near Dunhuang, Gansu continue to deliver up their secrets. The 'Thousand Buddha Caves' were created over a period of a thousand years and then were lost in the desert sands. After discovery in the early 20th century they were plundered by Western collectors. Now the Chinese government zealous protects the site. The 735 caves stood on the edge of China in ancient days where a branch of the Silk Road to Central Asia turns south to India. Many travelers made offerings to Buddha for a safe journey.

In the last week the Dunhuang Academy has opened the caves to photographers. Photography is not normally allowed and so this is a rare opportunity. Even so the pictures taken are not permitted to be taken away - they are to be judged by experts and the best ones put on display.

Addiction to online gaming has become quite a problem amongst youngsters in China as elsewhere in the world. With China's strict controls on Internet access it is somewhat easier for controls to be imposed. So draft legislation has been proposed to limit access, shutting down connections at midnight and limiting sessions to three hours.

In other moves, children have been sent to tough 'boot camps' to try to cure them of the addiction. Experts believe the move from desktop computers to smartphones will produce a natural decline in this particular problem, but smartphone addiction may well become just as much of a problem.

The unearthing of two skeletons in a Roman cemetery in London raises many questions. The people are of definite Asian ancestry. Just finding the bones does not give many clues, they could be officials, migrants or even slaves. What it does show that Europe (even remote Roman Britain) had more extensive links 2,000 years ago with the Asian world than had been previously thought.

The world's largest radio telescope in Guizhou has now started operation. It is a huge fixed dish built into the natural contours of a crater carefully selected for its near perfect parabolic shape. The large size (500m diameter) gives it the highest sensitivity of any radio telescope in the world enabling it to peer back even further both in space and time. As well as probing distant galaxies it may also try pick up any radio signals sent from alien civilizations. It has been built at a cost of $180billion and represents a stride forward in Chinese study of the heavens that date back 5000 years.

The once famous landmark of ancient Nanjing has been re-built using modern materials. The original pagoda tower was built with white porcelain blocks in 1412 by order of Emperor Yongle before he moved the Ming dynasty capital to Beijing in1421. The Porcelain Tower stood for 450 years before its destruction during the Taiping Rebellion. The magnificent reconstruction was made possible by China's richest man's Wang Jianlin donation of about $150 million to the Nanjing city authority, the largest personal donation in China.

A super storm at the highest 'red' warning level is due to slam into the southern part of Taiwan and then mainland Fujian and Guangdong provinces. It is really the very heavy rainfall rather than the winds that is likely to be the biggest threat to life and property. It is considered the strongest storm in the world this year.

The word 'typhoon' is probably one of the few English words with a Chinese origin because the mandarin name is the very similar Tái fēng

The top rank of world leaders come to China this week. President Xi Jinping will be keen for the summit to leave its mark with decisions made, all too often G20 summits have ended with very little to show for them. Security at Hangzhou, Zhejiang has been heightened and industry scaled back to minimize air pollution. Travel for ordinary Chinese will be disrupted to allow the G20 with their vast entourages free movement. This will be one of the last top level gatherings for US President Obama but the first for UK Prime Minister Theresa May. Issues likely to be hard to agree on are China's claim to sovereignty over the South China Sea and the world economy for which China's future policy will be crucial.

Most civilizations have in their early history the story of a cataclysmic flood . Many people have rather fancifully knitted these together events around the world into a single global event. It does seem weird that these floods, of which Noah's Biblical flood is the best known all occurred at roughly the same time - however this is really only a feature that recorded history and urban civilization began then. In the case of China the flood brought Yu the Great of the Xia dynasty to prominence. He is believed to have constructed flood defenses on the Yellow River that would help prevent future disasters. This legendary event has now been given support from archaeological discoveries. It is believed that an earthquake caused the Yellow River to be blocked and an immense flood formed as the waters found a new course. Finding any evidence of the Xia dynasty (2100-1600BCE) has proved elusive and these new finds are very promising. It is quite probably the Xia ruled a fairly small area along the Yellow River so finds are not widespread.

Some Chinese are furious that the Rio Olympic officials have got the Chinese national flag wrong. It is difficult to see how such a thing could happen these days. At first I could not see what the issue was, you really need to see both the correct and incorrect versions next to each other:

chinese flag

chinese flag

Still not see it? The difference is that the top one has the four little stars rotated so they seem to be orbiting the larger star while the second has them all that the same orientation.

The meaning of the flag is red stands the color of communism and the Han dynasty, while yellow is for the Yellow River as well as the traditional color of Han Chinese people. The large star symbolizes the Communist Party and the other four stars the important classes of people of China: working class; peasantry; petit bourgeoisie and patriotic capitalists. Note that other non-patriotic capitalists are excluded!

Heavy rain is not uncommon in central China at this time of year. However 2016 is turning out wetter than average. Over 300 people have already lost their lives and with a typhoon looking to hit in early August there may be further problems. It is heartening that the Three Gorges Dam is doing its job to regulate water flow on the Yangzi. Flood debris has had to be removed in recent days to stop it blocking the waters. Floods in China in the past have resulted in the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives on both the Yellow and Yangzi rivers.

The Chinese history books have always portrayed the Shang dynasty (1600-1100BCE) as a brutal, feudal society. Recent analysis of remains at the capital of Shang China, Yin in Henan province have shown that some human remains originally considered those of slaves were of captives. Analysis of the bones proved they did not live in China but came from the Qiang kingdom to the west. The feudal nature of the Shang was of importance in the Marxist era, as Marxist theory had all societies moving from a feudal towards a socialist one.

Previous discoveries at Yin have included vast numbers of oracle bone fragments that have given invaluable insights into the early Chinese written script.

The problem with wanting boys rather than girls has started to come home to roost. In 2014 for every 115 boys born in China there were only 100 girls. With so many men looking for women to marry the bride's family can set a high price. This latest report puts the going rate as 100,000 yuan ($15,000) payment for a bride. This high price reflects the fact that girls don't want to wed someone poor out in the countryside, they are all after a husband with a good, steady income, preferably in a big city.

The city has a modern art community, the 1865 Creative Park which supports local artists and designers.

As part of the Alliance of nations against Germany and Japan in the second World War, China's role is hardly ever mentioned. This article recounts the pivotal conflict in Burma that drove back Japanese forces. In July 1945 China joined British troops engaged in jungle warfare in Burma . They then moved into Tengchong, Yunnan and dislodged the Japanese. Over 10,000 China Expeditionary Force (CEF) troops died in the encounter. People still visit the cemeteries to acknowledge their debt to the many who died in this little known theater of war.

For non-Chinese people who have frequent dealings in China it is appropriate to have a name in Chinese. This article in China Daily interviews a range of people who have chosen such a name. The simplest way is to choose a 'transliteration' - a name that sounds fairly similar to your native name using Chinese sounds, however many people will go a step further and choose a name that reflects your personality and interests. When you have chosen an appropriate sounding name you need to choose the characters to write it with. As Chinese has many characters that sound the same this can offer a great choice, each character embuing the name with a different connotation. Traditionally a person might change their name several times during their life, so the chosen name can be changed if it proves inappropriate.

The Great Wall Of China is slowly vanishing. It is estimated that 30% has already gone, lost to the wind, rain and human recycling. The Great Wall is in fact a series of walls built at different times, the most famous and most visited portion near Beijing was the part most recently built - in Ming dynasty times. The turf built wall of the First Qin Emperor two thousand years ago snakes through Inner Mongolia and is much more prone to damage. Stones have often been taken to build houses, and at one point in the fervor of Mao's era parts were deliberately quarried as the Wall considered, briefly, as of no value to the new China. More stringent efforts are now being taken to preserve the remaining parts of the wall.

The National People's Congress are looking at a draft amendment to increase controls on air pollution in China. It would force all inland ships to use standard diesel fuel. Ships at sea would have to use cleaner fuel. To cut down on the need for fuel, all ports would need to provide power for boats while they are anchored. Air pollution is becoming a hot political as well as environmental concern as rapid industrialization is making China's cities a grim place to live.

China's border with Nepal used to run through the summit of the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest, but now that the mountain has moved 40 cms north-east in the last ten years, it can be argued that it is now clearly part of China. The Indian sub-continent sits on a geological plate that continues to thrust itself under Tibet causing the Himalayan mountain range to rise. Mount Everest has grown by 3cm in height in ten years although the recent tragic earthquake in Nepal has caused the movement to temporarily step back a little.

Moves are afoot to encourage the millions of government officials to learn the ancient Chinese classics to give them a better grounding in traditions. The works of the great Chinese philosophers (particularly Confucius), historians and writers are considered important in grounding officials with national traditions and values. The Gaoxue (literally 'country study') deal with Chinese culture. President Xi Jinping hopes that an emphasis on traditional moral values will lead to reduction of corruption and a patriotic fervor to do their work well.
