Who wrote this document? Was this person historically important?
Fox Butterfield wrote this document titled, Lihua. Fox Butterfield became somewhat historically important due to the fact that in 1979 he became the first New York Times correspondent to be based in Peking or later to be known as Beijing, in 30 years. He later published, in 1982, his firsthand accounts of this experience in his book titled, China, Alive in the bitter sea. This is where he had published the account of Lihua and her Family. This could not have happened without Richard Nixon’s trip to China in 1972 that ended more than two decades of Cold war hostility. This trip allowed journalist’s access to china for the first time in two decades, and created an appetite for China. This appetite was insatiable after many of American top journalists describe it as like “going to the moon.”, and therefore when US – Chinese relations were reopened in 1979. Many top Journalists jumped on this, including Fox Butterfield. This was historically important because it gave firsthand knowledge of the struggles that occurred within Chinese society especially with the destruction of intellectuals in Mao’s Cultural Revolution, and allowed for the first time in 30 years the ability for Americans to understand what was occurring overseas in China.
Relevant Events background
The Chinese revolution of 1949 was based on the majority of the Chinese against imperialism, feudalism, and capitalism. This was displayed quite well in the previous presenters by Mao in “the foolish old man“, speech in which Mao explains that the Chinese people hold two large mountains on their shoulders and one being imperialism, and “the other is feudalism.” However, afterwards much of the economic surplus was placed in the hands of the state for industrialization and in turn allowed elites the power to control. These elite found power and…...

The Fox

...After a short investigation, I found out the animal that I resemble the most. Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming the smartest creature in the world, The Fox. Let’s start with the correction of their bad reputation. Due to their ability to blend into their surroundings, foxes are generally noticed as sly and cunning beings. If you call someone foxy, most probably that is not going to be considered as a compliment. Basically they will understand that you are trying to tell them that they are tricksters or liars. Indeed, the word cunning, originates in the Old English word, kenning, which means to know, especially as applied to seeing something which isn't visible straight away. This can be related to the fox's outstanding sight and their ability to anticipate. There are various species of fox, I am the blue fox.

Artic Fox

...The Arctic Fox By Rebekah K, Grade 3 Project due, January 23, 2011 The Arctic Fox is a cute ball of white fluff. They are the size of a cat. They have short ears and legs; they have fur on the bottom of their feet, to keep their feet warm when they walk in the snow. Their fur coats are white in the winter months; this helps them blend in with the snow to protect them from their enemies. Brown – grey in the summer months, so then they look like the rocks and plants that grow in the tundra. The fox has a big bushy tail that they use for balance just like a cat. They also use their long bushy tail to keep them warm when they are sleeping. They have cute little faces, with a black nose and pretty brown eyes. They are one of my favorite animals. The Arctic fox lives in some of the coldest places on earth. In Canada they live in the Northwest Territories. Most foxes dig burrows under the ground or in dens. Some of the dens are over 300 years old. Each new generation of foxes will live there. Most of these dens have over a hundred doorways to get in them. If a fox doesn’t have a den they will burrow deep in the snow for shelter or find a cliff ledge. ...

Fox Ventures

...Fox Venture Partners: Enriching the Private Equity Investor Pool This HBS Case majorly discusses about a proposal from Peter Lawrence and Diana Frazier where they want to create an investment fund through which they will take investments from wealthy families and then reinvest the same into Venture Capital funds through private equity. The target group of investors for this new fund was clearly the wealthy families of United States who had been thus far investing in venture funds in an unstructured manner. Assumptions made by Lawrence and Frazier: 1) Wealthy class required educated and guided direction in channelizing their money into Venture funds to get better returns. 2) Private Equity investment needed to be diversified across funds based on geography, industry and maturity stage. Such diversification would reduce the risk from investing in Venture Capital 3) Families investing in Private equity for the first time had to do so in less established firms and hence would get pathetic returns and hence would have been dissatisfied with this asset class. Based on the above, Lawrence and Frazier thought that they would be able to bring in a qualified set of fund managers who would work along the principles of diversification of private equity based on the factors mentioned below and deliver returns. This proposition itself would make the fund attractive to wealthy families was the assumption. Guidelines for investing decided by Lawrence and Frazier: 1) Convince and......

Fox News Biased Week 7 Essay

...FOX News Biased? Media holds great power in any Country. It has the power to change the public’s perspective on any kind of leading force. It can provide information that the public may find horrifying, or it could provide a already negative view to an already disliked group. Whether the news provides good news or bad news, news is supposed to be informative, unbiased, and uncontrolled by any kind of power. The politician in power would make the call in which information is to be shared to the public or which information to be concealed. This kind of news provides no demonstration of what real news is supposed to be. Over the years, America seems to have been devoid of “corrupt media system.” As the country’s one of the main theme is to provide freedom of press, the news has not been too affected by the government. However, America’s news does not seem completely perfect either. One of the major broadcasting company, FOX, has the reputation of “bad news.” Not only is the company biased toward the Republican side, it also fails to administer what most people look for in real news. First, it is evident that Fox has been more influenced by the Republican/GOP side than any other party in America. Although it seemed somewhat unbiased for a little while, when the election time came, majority of Fox news articles seem to provide comfort to the public that the current government is doing its job is keeping the world a peaceful, safe and secure place. Secondly, because of...

The Fox Cub

...1. Write a summary of ”The Fox Cub” in about 150 words: Marie was new to the village, but she often went to the playfield just like Rachel and all the other children. Marie was the new and exciting one, so Rachel hang out with her sometimes. Rachel did not feel comfortable in Marie’s company, but she decided to get to know her anyway. Marie was a “wild” teenager. She was wearing lipstick, and she told Rachel had been with a 16-year-old boy. Rachel did not believe her and she was horrified that Marie would lie about stuff like that, just to feel cool in her new surroundings among the other children. Marie caught a fox and kept it in a tiny box inside an old chicken coop made of wood and wire mesh. It was a living fox, but Rachel could see that it would not live for long. Rachel got her bike and left. They did not see each other ever since. 2. Characterize Marie: Marie is 13, choppy and she is wearing cheap old clothes and sloppy shoes. Marie is a teenager with attitude. She feels better when she do something the other kids would not do. Marie feels cool. She is wearing lipstick, she has been sleeping with a boy 3 years older than her and she is just more grown up than she should be. Maladjusted if you would like. Marie’s family is not that good to take care of her. Her father yells at her, her cousin is a bully to her and no one really cares where she is or where she goes. I think Marie uses the playfield to get some space from......

Cnn vs Fox News

...CNN vs. Fox News I decided to focus on the CNN and Fox News networks for this assignment; in order to gain an understanding on the differences between how each network shares information with the public. From my own perspective, I have always viewed CNN as a more reliable source than Fox News, and as I analyzed both networks I find this assumption to be truer than I thought. I found that both networks share several of the same world news events, but each network has a different priority. However, of the several stories shared, one news report caught my attention most; the ISIS video threats to France, Italy, and the U.S. After watching both CNN and Fox News, it was evident to me that CNN broadcasted their findings in a very conscious manner, keeping the audiences best interest at mind. However, it isn’t just the fact that CNN touches upon several aspects concerning ISIS that gives me the impression that they are a more reliable source; but the depth that they get into in just thirty minutes. In the particular news broadcast covering the ISIS video that I saw, CNN gave detailed advice on how American tourists should stay safe, potential targets that ISIS may hit, and the protective security measures that the government is taking along with the FBI. They include insight on how several authorities are taking action by attending briefings and reporting back, as well as further investigation on how suicide bombs were built. When watching the one hour segment that Fox News......

Wolf and Fox Hunt

...Prof Triff AH May 7, 2015 Wolf and Fox Hunt The aspect of painted works of art, which makes them such immensely significant historical artifacts, is their tendency to reflect the social, cultural and political values of their particular artist as well as the time period and region in which they originate. The Baroque era of 17th century Europe was certainly no exception to this trend and, over a relatively short period, an entire generation of talented painters would rise to fame across the continent, names which are still as recognizable today as they were hundreds of years ago, such as Caravaggio, Titian and Veronese. While their paintings are the only thing left behind from the legacies of these great figures, they say a great deal about the artist themselves and what factors impacted their creative prowess, which is absolutely essential in cultivating modern historians’ understanding of this time period and its norms. In terms of Baroque artists who were influential across Europe both in an artistic, stylistic and political sense, one must look no further than the great Peter Paul Rubens. Rubens was infamous for his highly naturalistic, very movement and color driven works that do an excellent job of highlighting the realistic beauty of a scene while also bringing out a certain veristic appearance in depicted figures, which result in a breathtaking visual display, drawing the viewer’s attention to various points of interest across its......

Com 295 Cnn vs Fox

...CNN vs. Fox News ENG/220 March 3, 2014 CNN vs Foxnews There are a number of news outlets currently available online, but no two are as big as CNN.com and Foxnews.com. These two media giants control most of the coverage on news stories circulating the globe. Although, nothing is covered as heavily as the presidential election in the United States. The two websites, and their affiliated television channels have hosted multiple debates and both have nearly twenty four seven coverage of the current national election. For most individuals, this would be the end of the two media giant’s similarities as they are considered to be very different ideologically. One author states, “In their coverage of the invasion of Iraq, CNN and FNC broadcast two distinct ideological news cultures.” (Silcock 2008). The writings to follow, will take you on a journey of the key differences and similarities of these two successful companies. Similarities CNN.com has long been regarded as a more liberal sources than its counterpart Foxnews.com, this may be true in some instances, but certainly not all. While most people would disagree with that statement, it is relatively closer to the truth than thinking that CNN is a very liberal source. In most instances online, the two sources have very similar headlines, and their stories are much closer to being aligned than one would expect. For example, on CNN.com the main headline is “Trump is a fraud,” whereas on Foxnews.com it is “Trump, Romney feud......

Renard the Fox

...Reynard The Fox Analysis and Comparison Reynard the Fox tells a story of a medieval kingdom in which several barons have conflict with lord Reynard. They come to Nobel the lion king to suggest the execution of Reynard for his villainous acts. The fist part of the story summarizes various “crimes” Reynard has committed. One such example involves puss the hair being abused by Reynard.1 The final decision is made that in order to properly punish Reynard, he must be summoned to court in order to tell his side of the story and defend himself. Several barons are sent to deliver the summons to Reynard. The first two are tricked into harmful traps that send them back to court empty handed. Finally Grey the badger convinces Reynard to come in and use his sly to win over Nobel and wipe clean his offenses. During their trip Reynard confesses all of the wrongs that he had committed. Grey told him that as long as he is truly sorry and abandoned his old ways, that he would be forgiven and trusted once more. For the remainder of the trip to court, Grey notices Reynard slipping into his ways and either reminds him of the oath he made or questions his true intent. They eventually make it to court where Reynard attempts to flatter Nobel by saying that his is his most loyal servant and has always been there when Nobel needed him. Nobel was not pleased with this and challenged Reynard to discount his accusers for his freedom. Upon failing to prove his complete innocence,......
