Editor’s note for Thursday, February 13, 2020

Dear Access member,

Do you like Chinese liquor? Or are you curious about báijiǔ 白酒? If you’re in New York on February 27, please come to our baijiu tasting event in partnership with Ming River Baijiu. The event is free for Access members — just register here with the code baijiuaccess.

The U.S.-China-Africa relationship is the topic of today’s special edition of the Sinica Podcast featuring the latest member of our network, the China in Africa Podcast, hosted by Eric Olander and Cobus van Staden.

Our word of the day is “@.” While it is not normally thought of as a Chinese character, today’s top story on Xinhua News Agency’s Chinese-language website was titled: “At this most critical moment, Xi Jinping @’s all levels of Party and government.” In Chinese, that is:

最吃劲的关键阶段,习近平@各级党委、政府
zuì chījìn de guānjiàn jiēduàn, Xí Jìnpíng @ gè jí dǎngwěi, zhèng fǔ.

So, per Xinhua, “@” is a new Chinese character meaning something like “communicate with” and pronounced “ah-te.”
