I kinda want to ask posters (more experienced members who knows chinese) about whether there are some good podcasts or videos that reveals some more details about the various joint military exercises between China and Russia.

Like I do know chinese so I've heard some few remarks to these various exercises from say guanqiyouyu or chahuahui, but there doesn't seem to be any longer podcast where these exercises are talked about more in depth?

Or is it in general hard to find info about these exercises?

I have uncovered some information about a sinister plot to shut down a Chinese Confucian institute in the place where I'm in right now here in Canada. What would be the best way to alert Chinese authorities about this? I found a link to the Chinese State Security page, and they have a section there where I can file reports. Any advice if this page is legit? Thank you.

I think contacting the Chinese embassy near you may be a better solution. But for various reasons, I fear that there may not necessarily be a positive response.

Honest question, is SDF flagged & tracked by security agencies ? I was browsing through SDF at Walmart . Then when I tried walmart wifi, SDF page didn’t load. But when I opened DFI or other similar defense page, it opened normally. Why would walmart specifically block this particular website ?

No, it’s clearly not tracked or even read by US security agencies. If it was their analysis would be much better, and the world would be a safer place.

Of course, SDF is monitored by the security agencies, but I expect the monitoring to be done by computer automatically.

Anybody here with software development background? I want to ask what tools, libraries and programming languages should I learn as a foundation in making a non-web desktop software from start to finish, because from all the articles I read I'm confused as to where to start. I have some knowledge on Java, C# and C++, still have no idea how to make an executable lol

Go with Microsoft Visual Studio to create your own project from scratch.

Just make your own command line program in order to understand user input and output. And then the real work is on the processing stage.

My advice is to don't bother creating UI, the terminal does its work fine at the start. As for the language to use, I think Java is the easiest to learn for newbies

In any case, programming languages don't matter so much, so first focus on learning the fundamental principles on programming and then you can start learning all the programming languages you want

You can also enroll in online open courses which some universities offer for free so that you can get a solid understanding on programming

I've learned programming before using the terminal for a long time with C++, and dabbled a bit with UI for Java using Swing, I'm not sure what my proficiency is in programming but I know how to make data structures and some design patterns like singleton and builder. I'm contemplating what I should learn in order to get into the software development industry, so I've been reading some articles and watching video on like tech stacks and stuff, and I'm getting the impression that I should go for full stack development in to develop the entirety of a software, and start with MEAN stack as a foundation to be familiar with software stack development. So I want to ask, is learning a tech stack required for building a desktop app and, if its only applied to web apps and not standalone apps that don't require Internet connection?
