China Student's Jailing for U.S. Tweets Shows Beijing's Reach
(Bloomberg) -- Sign up for Next China, a weekly email on where the nation stands now and where it's going next.The case of a Chinese student jailed for tweets he sent while studying in America underscores that being overseas is no protection from Beijing's censors.Luo Daiqing, who attends the University of Minnesota in the U.S., was sentenced to six months in jail by a district court in November for "provocation" after he posted tweets that "defaced the image of the country's leaders" and had a "negative impact" on society. He was detained in his hometown of Wuhan between July 12 and Jan. 11.A Twitter account linked to Luo posted photos showing government slogans printed over a cartoon villain who looks similar to Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to Axios, which first reported the case Wednesday. The account, which was inaccessible on Thursday, also posted images of Winnie the Pooh, whose likeness is considered sensitive on Chinese social media due to unflattering comparisons to the Communist Party chief.The case is another sign that China is cracking down on government criticism, even outside its borders. While Twitter Inc.'s service is one of many foreign websites banned on the mainland, it's accessible using virtual private network software that mask a user's location and Chinese propaganda organizations maintain a robust presence on the platform.The court said Luo had "confessed" to using a false identity for a post that included altered pictures in a bid to attract attention. He later deleted them af

Religious-School Aid Divides U.S. Supreme Court Justices
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. Supreme Court justices signaled a sharp divide in a Montana case that could make it easier to funnel public money to religious schools and other faith-based organizations.With Chief Justice John Roberts in his customary center seat, the court heard arguments a mere eight hours after he finished presiding over the first day of President Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial. The trial resumes Wednesday at 1 p.m.The Montana Supreme Court struck down a taxpayer-funded scholarship program that was used primarily to help send children to religious schools, ruling that it violated a state constitutional provision. The ruling is being challenged by three mothers seeking to use money from the program to send their children to a Christian school.Roberts is likely to cast the pivotal vote. His questions suggested he might back the parents and revive the scholarship program, though he directed queries at lawyers on both sides.The chief justice made no mention of his new second job, conducting the hour-long session much as he usually does. He interrupted Justice Sonia Sotomayor during an especially long question to give a lawyer a chance to answer. Roberts later drew a laugh when he recommended that another lawyer answer Justice Stephen Breyer's question despite Breyer's suggestion that the attorney could ignore it.Sotomayor and other liberal justices questioned whether the mothers had any grounds to complain given that the entire program has been thrown out. Justice Elena Kagan said they were "in the same boat" as the parents of children in non-religious private schools."There is no discrimination at this point going on, is there?" she asked.Anti-Catholic BiasThe 2015 scholarship progr

Chinese authorities are placing the city of Wuhan under quarantine in an attempt to slow the outbreak of a new coronavirus that originated in the city.The state-owned China Daily announced that trains and flights to Wuhan would be temporarily suspended. Local government authorities also announced that public transportation within the city would be curtailed by Thursday."There has already been human-to-human transmission and infection of medical workers," deputy director of the National Health Commission Li Bin said at a Wednesday news conference.

Galaxy users, take note: Samsung's probably selling your data
Relying on Google services, as most of us Android-carrying primates do, comes with a certain tradeoff. It's no big secret or anything: Google makes its money by selling ads, which are more effective when they're catered to our interests — the subjects we tend to search about, the things we buy (when Google knows about 'em, at least), and often even the places we go with our location-enabled phones in tow (and/or in toe, for the monkeys among us).

That's all par for the course, as I frequently say — part of the deal we all accept when we use Google services. That's what makes it possible for Google to give us top-notch apps for free, and it's also what opens the door to certain advanced features that wouldn't be possible without that information's presence.

Security researcher Brian Krebs is warning that a particularly nasty bug may be patched on Tuesday, January 14—the day that support for Windows 7 is expected to expire. And it appears that Microsoft will have more the share later today.

If that's true, then potentially millions of Windows users could be exposed to the malware, which Krebs is reporting could involve crypt32.dll, which controls "certificate and cryptographic messaging functions in the CryptoAPI." Here's what's scary, Krebs reports: A flaw in the crypt32.dll could be used to spoof the digital signature of a piece of software, creating the possibility that your PC could allow in a piece of malware posing as a perfectly legitimate application.
