Comments Off on Weekly Roundup: Super Computers, Avoiding Unnecessary Transportation Waste, Avoiding Eco-Fatigue, Big Bird Learns Chinese

With so much going on in China, and only a limited amount of bandwidth, I have created this weekly post to highlight articles that I feel are (1) important, (2) relevant, and (3) interesting.

This week there are 3 articles that I have chosen to highlight as each are quite interesting, they are all relevant, and there are issues within each that I think you the reader should be aware of.

If you have an article that you feel needs to be mentioned, please do so in the comments section.

China unveils supercomputer
China has just unveiled its fastest computer yet, and has joined the ranks of supercomputing nations.

Still not direct shipping? –What a waste
For those still looking to save some money in the supply chain, this article looks at how shipping direct to customers (rather than put hands on a product) can save money and improve ones carbon footprint.  for some, this is a step that will add a level of risk, but with a China based team conducting final inspections in country, a firm can do this comfortably.
Big Bird in China

Before Chinesepod, there was Big Bird, and in the 80s… this was cutting edge stuff
