China: Take Our Women
Weird Asian News: LINK
“You know, China is a very poor country,” Mao said. “We don’t have much. What we have in excess is women. So if you want them we can give a few of those to you, some tens of thousands.”

Mao circled back to the offer a few minutes later. “Do you want our Chinese women?” he asked. “We can give you 10 million.”

Kissinger noted Mao was “improving his offer,” and the chairman is on record then saying, “We have too many women … They give birth to children and our children are too many.”

“It is such a novel proposition,” Kissinger replied. “We will have to study it.”

The conversation occurred in 1973 in Beijing, China and as far as we could find… the promised 10 million Chinese women were not given to the US.
Spain: Real Women Need New Sizes

After a yearlong study by the Health Ministry that included using laser scans to measure more than 10,000 female volunteers aged 12 to 70, the government hopes to persuade the fashion industry to devise a new standard for clothing sizes that would fit most women. The study concluded that Spanish women were not the very skinny tall types that designers idealize, but rather fell into three main body types: hourglass, pear shape and cylinder. It also found that 4 of 10 women had trouble finding clothes to fit, mainly because sizes varied from store to store and because what was on the racks was too small.

South Korea: First Trial By Jury
New York Times: LINK
A trial with a jury was held at a local court in Taegu, the first in Korea’s legal history. The nine-member jury heard the case of a 27-year-old man accused of assaulting a 70-year-old woman while trying to rob her house. After hours of deliberation, most jurors recommended a two-to-four year suspended prison sentence. Their verdict, and others to follow, was not binding; the final say still rests with a judge. “Still,” a court spokesman said, “the introduction of a jury will enhance the people’s confidence in court verdicts in our country.” In the trial on Tuesday, the judge later announced a four-year suspended sentence. “The judge concluded the jury’s decision was logical,” the spokesman said.
