What I read this week:

Vice President Biden’s visit to Beijing and Chinese domestic politics. Relatedly, Robert Kelly looks at four hypotheses behind China’s suddenly-declared a new Air Defense Identification Zone.

Cultural taboos and changing sexual norms spur HIV surge in Iran.

The Netherlands moves to demanding that immigrants pass a demanding Dutch language test or leave the country. In other language news, the formal/informal pronoun distinctions in many Western languages appear to be falling out of favor.

An interesting look at Indian online dating sites.

From yesterday, more linkage at Political Violence @ a Glance.

Idir & Noa – Ce Coeur Venu D’Ailleurs.
