    Using A VPN To Circumvent Website Blocks In The UK 

    website-firewallA VPN is usually used to protect your privacy. But in many situations, a VPN is necessary to circumvent censorship or website blocks. When we think of censorship or blocked websites, we often think of China or Iran, which filter and block thousands of IP addresses, websites, and specific pages or URLs within websites.

    But most other countries also engage in disrupting or blocking websites. For example, the United Kingdom has blocked Wikipedia, WordPress.com, and Archive.org. There is a growing and updated list here that lists website blocks in the UK. It’s important to monitor this list occassionally to be informed of new and important updates. True, many of the sites that get blocked are torrent sites that infringe on copyrights, but many others are blocked for more ulterior or business motives.

    Swedish Teenager’s Imprisonment In China Is Cautionary Tale For Expats 

    China’s rule of law is more pomp than circumstance, as told by the WSJ’s piece “A Bar Tussle Ends in a Beijing Jail: A Young Expat’s Story” by Sofia McFarland. Any foreigner residing and doing business in China should read this piece, as it parallels much of the frustrations, conceits, deceits, and goings-on we face on a daily base in our lives in China.

    The article follows a young Swede named Noak who is thrown into a Beijing jail after a fight outside a bar. Though his accuser eventually not only says Noak was not responsible for the fight (while still taking a cash compensation), Noak still spends months waiting in vain in China for his case to be heard and his innocence vindicated.

    His innocence is never really vindicated, but he is allowed finally to leave China.
