A stand up comedy company in #China has been fined 14.7 million yuan (USD $2.13 million) after a comedian told a joke said to be making fun of the People's Liberation Army at a #Beijing show. The company Xiaoguo Culture says it has terminated its contract with comedian Li Haoshi.
The joke involved dogs chasing a squirrel which he said reminded him of the expression, "Adopt a good style of work; be able to fight and win battles", a phrase #XiJinping has used to praise the work ethic of #China's military.
Stand up comedians in #China really have to be careful what they say. Eg, When performances started after #Covid they were ordered not to make fun of the #Shanghai lockdown. Some have turned to using English but they also must tread lightly...…

The long-awaited #Shanghai upgrade is finally on.

#LSD narrative is expected to take off from here.

One of the innovative #LSD projects that should be in your bag is $ASX.

Why @asymetrix_eth?

Let’s dive in 🌊👇 Image
@asymetrix_eth is a decentralized, non-custodial protocol for asymmetric yield distribution generated from staking.

Its innovative approach makes staking more exciting, especially for average holders, by solving significant issues faced in regular ETH staking.
🟢 Why stETH?

Asymetrix chose stETH as the main asset due to its transparency and product-market fit.

stETH is the most dominant token in liquid staking protocols, with a market cap of over $5 billion.

Ethereum is the focus since it generates native yield from staking.

In 1933, #Shanghai magazine ‘The Young Companion’ featured this lady in a swimsuit on its cover. I want to repeat '1933' for you to feel how extraordinary it was. Who is she? A 🧵 on my avatar 👇 (1)… Image
She is Yeung Sau-King,#China’s first female Olympian swimmer. Born a natural swimmer, she dominated at an early age. (2) Image
I will give you one example: She won all five women's swimming titles at the 5th National Games held in 1933, including the 50m freestyle, 100m freestyle, 100m backstroke, 200m breaststroke, and the 200m quadruple relay. (3) Image

Didn't visit the #Shanghai #Autoshow, but here is a list of takeaways somebody wrote that's circulating on social media and getting a lot of nods.
I'll briefly translate.
1. EV are the future, the days of combustion engine vehicles are numbered. Image
2. Brand value of luxury brands such as #Benz and #BMW is the saving grace of combust engine vehicles
3. #Audi is lagging behind Benz and BMW, the conventional acronym of the big 3 lux brands of "BBA" is now "BB"
4. After 3 years of Covid, the latest development of Chinese EVs has shocked many foreign brands
5. Many foreigners are watching domestic brand cars with anxiety on their face
6. Japanese, Korean and French brands have little future in the Chinese market

Long story short, it's a #WWI memorial erected in 1924. The puppet government took it down during the Japanese occupation in #WWII . Rumor says it was melted for Japanese war purposes. It was not. (2) Image
