CHINA GRIMM ON FAIRY TALE AND ELK HUNTER BAGS SKIER IN SWEDEN

A couple of news briefs of some interest.

First ... CHINA in the news.

Chinese publisher releases erotic fairy tales by mistake

By Malcolm Moore, Shanghai

A Chinese publisher has been forced to recall a collection of Grimm’s Fairy Tales after mistakenly translating an erotic Japanese version of the stories.
The edition of the children’s book which hit the shelves in China in October included a reworking of the story of Snow White in which she romps with the seven dwarves.

Red-faced executives at Beijing Mediatime, the publishing house, said a mix-up had occurred when they could not find the original German version of the book to translate, and had turned to a Japanese version instead.

Around 150 copies of the book were sold in Hangzhou before complaints from customers led to the recall.
“Readers called us to say they did not think the book was healthy for children,” said Li Yong, the deputy chairman of the publisher.

“After that, we pulled all the copies off shelves across the country before last Wednesday.”
Asked how the mix-up had gone unspotted, the publisher said the situation had been “complicated”.

Another executive from Beijing Mediatime, only named as Mr Yuan, told the Zhejiang Morning Express newspaper: “We cannot read Japanese, so we cannot make a comparison, but we trusted the translator, who is a post graduate student.”

A GRIMM TAIL?

no, I spelled it the right way on this occasion.

Elk hunter bags skier in Sweden


Elk hunter accidentally kills skier

A female hunter accidentally shot dead 70-year-old cross-country skier when a bullet she fired ricocheted off an elk and struck the victim, according to reports.

Police were investigating the incident and the account given by the female hunter and her companion about the bullet first striking the elk and then bouncing off to hit the skier, killing the man instantly.

The hunter was in shock and police were not yet able to question her, according to the Expressen newspaper.

The incident occurred Saturday in a forest region near Ljungby, some 155 miles south-west of the capital Stockholm.

Each year, some 300,000 hunt elk, killing 100,000 of the animals. Formerly an exclusively male domain, in recent years more and more women have taken part, with more than 14,600 Swedish women registered for this year’s elk hunt.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
