Current Events related to East Asian History (only a paragraph)

Hello for this paragraph you are to relate the current tensions with China and the NBA (National Basketball Association. You don’t have to take sides, just talk about the situation and relate it to East Asian History (or in this case China). This link could help with the topic: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/14/sports/nba-china-hong-kong-protests.html. I will post the Professor’s instructions below. Please use 2 credible sources. Thank you! —————————————————————————— A lot is happening in Asia right now, more than I can possibly teach you. My hope is that this course has given you some of the tools you need to find things out for yourselves. Think of something happening in Asia right now that interests you. It can be about China (the PRC, Taiwan, or Hong Kong), Japan, Okinawa, North Korea, or South Korea. Find two sources from current newspapers and magazines, read them, and then write a summary. Important update: part your grade on the written portion of the assignment will depend on the reliability of your source. Please avoid youtube videos from people whose background is hard to determine, blog posts from random people, and fake news. Reputable news organizations are fine (they can lean right wing or left wing, but avoid fringe). These are the things you need to include in your written report: 1. Tell me what the topic is. Make sure you choose something interesting to you. 2. Explain why it is interesting to you and important today. 3. How does it connect to things we have discussed in the course — in other words, what is the historical background? 4. What do you think will happen in the future? 5. Cite your sources Each of the items 1-4 should be a short paragraph, so the total length is about twice as long as your normal blog posts.
