Beijing, May 27, 2017: China on Friday said the Dalai Lama has no right to change the rituals and processes, set by the Chinese government, for appointing his successor.

Reacting to the Tibetan spiritual leader’s remarks that his incarnation cannot be born in a place where “there is no freedom”, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a briefing, “The title of Dalai Lama is given by the central government. There are fixed set of religious rituals and processes and these cannot be changed by one individual.”

“As for the reincarnation in Tibetan Buddhism and the Dalai Lama reincarnation is concerned, the competent departments of the government have talked about it and have also issued a white paper. The 14th Dalai Lama is also clear about this,” Lu said.

“The 14th Dalai Lama was also enthroned under the representatives of the Republic of China at that time,” he added.

China calls the 14th Dalai Lama a separatist who has been demanding autonomy in Tibet. The Tibetan spiritual leader fled to India in 1959 after a failed uprising and has been living there since then. (IANS)

    What astonishing chutzpah the Chinese Communist Party displays. They are nothing but a gang of thieves.

    China has no right to place or set rituals of another nation or make rules for another nations internal affairs. Tibet and its people are not of Chinese origin and China is the illegitimate entity that interferes in the affairs of another nation. The Tibetans can decide their own destiny and follow its religious icon His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The monks of Tibet have their own committee to find and appoint the Dalai Lama. Nature in its own wisdom has evolved so that the new Dalai Lama even though a child finds the committee. These are the truths the Tibetan budhist monks believe. Tell China not to spread ugly propaganda news.

    Government of China makes up fantasies like the power it holds that it can solely enthrone the Dalai Lama. Tell China to get the hell out of Tibet and not manipulate and make up stories like the rebellion inside Tibet had to be crushed and other stories that say His Holiness is a dissident of the Tibetan race and not a genuine Dalai Lama. Tibet and the Dalai Lama are legitimate indipendent nation. China is playing the false god of Tibet. That Tibet can not decide anything about Tibet and everything about Tibet is to be decided by the Government of China. It is amazingly disgusting that China can make up so many lies. Chinese news is full of deciet and lies and that is why it is called the Chinese propaganda.

Shanghai Airport Gets Check-In With Facial Recognition Machines

Increased convenience may come at a cost in a country with few rules on how the government can use biometric data.

It’s now possible to check in automatically at Shanghai Hongqiao airport using facial recognition technology, part of an ambitious rollout of facial recognition systems in China that has raised privacy concerns as Beijing pushes to become a global leader in the field.

Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport unveiled self-service kiosks for flight and baggage check-in, security clearance and boarding powered by facial recognition technology, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China.

Similar efforts are under way at airports in Beijing and Nanyang city, in central China’s Henan province.

Face recognition tool was first launched in 2012

Many airports in China already use facial recognition to help speed security checks, but Shanghai’s system, which debuted Monday, is being billed as the first to be fully automated.

“It is the first time in China to achieve self-service for the whole check-in process,” said Zhang Zheng, general manager of the ground services department for Spring Airlines, the first airline to adopt the system at Hongqiao airport. Currently, only Chinese identity card holders can use the technology.

Spring Airlines, Shanghai said Tuesday that passengers had embraced automated check-in, with 87 percent of 5,017 people who took Spring flights on Monday using the self-service kiosks, which can cut down check-in times to less than a minute and a half.

Across greater China, facial recognition is finding its way into daily life. Mainland police have used facial recognition systems to identify people of interest in crowds and nab jaywalkers, and are working to develop an integrated national system of surveillance camera data.

Chinese media are filled with reports of ever-expanding applications: A KFC outlet in Hangzhou, near Shanghai, where it’s possible to pay using facial recognition technology; a school that uses facial recognition cameras to monitor students’ reactions in class; and hundreds of ATMs in Macau equipped with facial recognition devices to curb money laundering.

But increased convenience may come at a cost in a country with few rules on how the government can use biometric data.

“Authorities are using biometric and artificial intelligence to record and track people for social control purposes,” said Maya Wang, senior China researcher for Human Rights Watch. “We are concerned about the increasing integration and use of facial recognition technologies throughout the country because it provides more and more data points for the authorities to track people.” (VOA)
