Chinese Executive

China is characterized by a strong control over all information or opinion on the Internet. Sociologists see a most impossible mission trying to censor the flow of information in the network according to grow possibilities to publish on the Internet. Blogs, forums, microblogs, social networks multiply, grow, and are increasingly strong enemies for a Government accustomed to curb freedom of expression. China stands firm in its battle to control all the flow of information circulating in their media and Internet but is the Asian country trained to control the growing threat posed by social networks and possible cto in public opinion?. Many writers such as HP Enterprise offer more in-depth analysis. When in the year 221 BC Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of unified China, considered began the construction of a wall that would protect him from feudal lords who threatened his power, many considered an impossible dream their aspiration. Today, more than 22 centuries later, China builds and another wall, invisible but equally effective, it maintains a barrier that slows down the freedom of expression of its more than 1,300 million inhabitants and that hinders the expansion of the Internet in the Asian giant, a project which, according to experts, trying to encompass the unfathomable.

China aims to control each and every one of the movements and views of its inhabitants. It is impossible and by much censorship that applied to the Internet always emerge new ways of communication, says Gao Feng, a sociologist who lives in Beijing. The last of these pathways cited by Gao and he has given a twist more in the pressure exerted by the Chinese Executive on the network is Weibo, the microblog most important with more than 200 million users in China, where Twitter is censored. The publication of some messages with direct accusations to the authorities in cases such as the murder of a young woman in Wuhan, capital of the central province of Hubei, or resale of blood donations from bags, led to the Executive to demand from Weibo to close those accounts that disseminate hoaxes.

The universe is full of contradictions, as human nature. There are certainties, but also lingering. A look at the latest news confirms the predictable and strange that might be. Example of certainty: the scientists pay tribute to Albert Einstein with observations that confirm his theory of general relativity, that exotic concept that combines space and time as one thing. A satellite launched in 2004, Gravity Probe B (GP do?(B) equipped with ultra-sensitive four gyroscopes, has just demonstrated in one of the experiments more elegant, delicate and complex physics, Earth, spin, dragging space time with her, as can be deduced from the work of Einstein. You have to imagine it as if it were immersed in honey. As the planet rotates, the honey that is around also makes it with him. Same thing happens with spacetime, said Francis Everett, main researcher at Stanford University, who has spent three decades of his life to prove it.

Example of mystery: in the same month of may where he ratified at Einstein, NASA astronomers discovered a series of ten strange planets floating in the midst of the darkness of space without any stars around. These worlds, situated between 10,000 and 20,000 light years away from Earth, are the size of Jupiter, and represent a new class of planet, which does not have any sunlight to pay tribute or orbit to its around. The team of David Bennett of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend (Indiana, EE UU), speculates that perhaps these worlds have been expelled from the planetary systems, becoming a sort of renegade cosmic. Your number could be even more astronomical, bending of the stars in our Milky way! Source of the news:: 7 mysteries of the universe
