  5. Craig, I have a proposal for a book on “Service Management.” It is not the usual “call center” book. It gets into the weeds on all aspects; field, factory, installation, managing work orders, software, failure mechanisms, etc.. Is there any use for this type of book in your neck of the woods? Thanks for reading this.

China’s propaganda machine is intensifying its ‘people’s war’ to catch American spies

“Let’s fight a ‘people’s war’ against the spies, so that they cannot move a single step and have no place to hide!” That was the rallying cry of a Chinese military newspaper on social media over the weekend, as Beijing urges public vigilance against American espionage following the launch of a CIA mission center dedicated […]

China’s blackouts break power cutoff pledge

As China struggles to control the latest surge of power shortages, the government seems to be hoping that the public will have short memories for how it has dealt with similar problems in the past.
