In China, brands speak out about forced-labor concerns in Xinjiang and consumers boycott H&M and burn Nikes. In the US, Anta and Li-Ning explicitly support Xinjiang cotton and continue to recruit NBA players -- one signed an endorsement deal last week https://t.co/ceW3OgqxF0

On 3/15, I agreed to write this. On 3/16, the Atlanta shootings happened--making this essay feel infinitely harder, but infinitely more important to write. So honored to have it alongside the work of these amazing Asian and Asian American photographers. https://t.co/tUfnhrvu31

Following the Xinjiang cotton dispute, a blur of pixels has been obscuring the Western brands worn by contestants on China’s most popular online shows. As @haifeng_huang puts it, this censorship has become its own form of entertainment. Story w/ @albeezh https://t.co/yzgGPTZEzk

‘What you’ve seen over the last year is an acceleration of concern in the US about Taiwan,’ he said that ‘this delicate situation that appeared to have been successfully managed or finessed for decades, suddenly people woke up to the possibility that the era has come to an end.’”

Taiwan, gripped by drought, has shut off irrigation across tens of thousands of acres of farmland. In Hsinchu, home to TSMC’s HQs, some farmers are paying the price for their high-tech neighbors’ economic importance. w/@zhonggg + nice photos by @Anrizzy https://t.co/5JsCYjs7m4

Spare a thought for Taiwan's water woes, which are not good for the tech world but might be worse for the island's rice growers. @amy_changchien and I met farmers whose fields have been cut off to save water for homes and chip factories. W/ @Anrizzy pics https://t.co/iJLoNakdLi

New: China has made rapid advances in nearly unstoppable hypersonic missiles, which can be pointed at US and Taiwan. But to develop them requires supercomputers made with help from companies and tech from…US and Taiwan. New story with @nakashimae cont/ https://t.co/46reszthGj

In a couple blocks here in Beijing yesterday, McDonald’s ice cream cones were 2 for the price of 1, Lego was offering a free kit with each purchase and everything from tea to wedding photos was discounted — provided you had been vaccinated. @vwang3 https://t.co/QI8KDYzQrr

A new state-backed musical and a CGTN documentary about the “blood, violence, terrorism and separatism” in old Uyghur language textbooks are part of Beijing’s wide-ranging new propaganda campaign to push back on its crackdown in Xinjiang. https://t.co/7Dl6CF6gI7

Still, Ms. Wu said she was concerned that the construction site may have fallen short of safety standards. “You have to ensure the safety of the construction, because if you don’t you will end up hurting other people,” said Ms. Wu.

“I don’t want to blame anyone,” Ms. Wu said on Sunday, as she sat with family members under a tent at a funeral home in Hualien. They were waiting for a mortuary makeup artist to finish work on the body of Wu’s daughter, a 35-year-old nurse who had been on her way back home.

The construction project had been commissioned by Taiwan’s transportation ministry to improve the safety of the slope near the crash site, which occurred on a steep mountainside on the Pacific coast. It was part of a larger, six-year plan to enhance railway safety in Taiwan.

Grim irony: the truck which slipped down the incline into the train track was associated with a construction project commissioned by Taiwan’s transportation ministry to improve the safety of the slope near the crash site. The driver is in custody. https://t.co/lfdg6r5Sm2
