This year the unauthorized 'Panchen Lama' the Chinese regime endorsed is among the eight nominees vying for the Confucius Prize. Launched in 2010 shortly after Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo won the Nobel Peace Prize, the Chinese regime is hosting again its "Confucius Peace Prize." The award's executive chairman, Liu Haofeng, says they are affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Culture. This year's candidates include 21-year-old Gyaincain Norbu. He was selected by the Chinese regime to act as the 'Panchen Lama.' The young man often praises the Communist Party rule over Tibet. The Panchen Lama is the second most important figure in Tibetan Buddhism and is traditionally chosen by the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama had chosen a young Tibetan boy named Gedhun Choekyi Nyima to be the Panchen Lama back in 1995. The boy and his family "disappeared" soon after. Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates is another contender. Also on the list is Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, known for his dictatorial ways, for the silencing of his critics, and for leading the second Chechen war. Other nominees include South African president Jacob Zuma, former United Nations chief Kofi Annan, Chinese agricultural scientist Yuan Longping, considered the "father of hybrid rice," and German chancellor Angela Merkel. Liu says Merkel is chosen for her contribution to peace in Europe, and to prompt her to be more aware of Eastern values. But Liu didn't explain what he means by "Eastern values." The eighth nominee is Taiwanese politician James Soong, founder of the People First Party in the Kuomintang-led faction. The recipient of the Confucius Peace Prize will receive more than $15,000—the winner is to be announced on December 9th—one day before the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, Norway. Liu denies the Chinese peace award was set up to counter the Nobel Peace Prize.

Today’s episode is brought to you by the Un-carrier. Introducing T-Mobile One. All unlimited. ALL IN! http://bit.ly/2iKrtmS More Celebrity News ►► http://bit.ly/SubClevverNews The Razzies have released the nominees for their annual award show and there are some pretty surprising titles on this list. Great movies get honored and recognized left and right, but what about the horrible ones? Bad movies need some lovin’ too! The nominees for the 37th annual Golden Raspberry Awards are finally here and to no one’s surprise – well, maybe a few people weren’t expecting this – but Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the top nominees for the most Razzie this year. The movie received a total of eight nominations. To name a few of the categories Batman v. Superman found itself in, this includes worst actor as well as worst on-screen combo for both Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, worst director, and sadly worst picture of 2016 where it is up against Dirty Grandpa, Gods of Egypt, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, Independence Day: Resurgence, and Zoolander number 2. And speaking of Zoolander 2, the film received a whopping NINE nominees, while Dirty Grandpa received six, and Gods of Egypt, Hillary’s America, and Independence Day: Resurgence received five each. But, those films aren’t the only ones up for Razzies. Other contenders include Megan Fox, Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Kristin Wiig, Nicolas Cage, Johnny Depp, Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, The Entire Cast of Once Respected Actors AKA almost everyone who was in Collateral Beauty (ouch), and Tyler Perry – just to name a few. For the first time this year, each of the categories were all opened up to six nominees as opposed to the usual five. According to the show’s organizers, they said QUOTE, “The crop of cinematic crap in 2016 was so extensive that this year’s 37th annual Razzie Awards is expanding the number of nominees from the usual five to an unprecedented six contenders in each of its nine worst achievement in film categories.” Welp, that’s one way to say a good majority of the movies in 2016 sucked. All of this goes down on February 25th, a day before Oscars awards are handed out. Who were you most surprised to see nominated for a Razzie?

One of the 19 nominees for the 11th Cycle of The Aga Khan Award for Architecture Location: Nanhai, Guandong, China (Asia) Architect: URBANUS Architecture & Design Inc. / Xiaodu Liu & Yan Meng Client: Shenhzen Vanke Real Estate Co. Ltd. Completed: 2008 Site size: 13'711 m² This pioneering prototype for affordable housing in China is inspired by the traditional tulou, the multi-family, fortress-like earth house found in the rural areas of Fujian province. The urban Tolou consists of an outer circular block with a rectangular box within that is connected to the outer ring by bridges and a courtyard. Both the circular and rectangular blocks contain small apartment units; the spaces in between are for circulation and community use. The lower floors contain shops and other community facilities. Rents are low and apartments are not available to car owners, adding to the homogeneity of the community, many of whom are migrant workers. The self-contained circular form stands in sharp contrast to the typical high-rise blocks around it. The entire structure is wrapped in a concrete screen with wooden inserts that shade the balconies, giving each unit a secondary living space. The position of the apartments also allows for good light and ventilation. Resulting from extensive research into the original earth houses as well as the social dynamics of current urbanisation trends in China, the Tulou Collective Housing is a unique experiment in low-income housing and the transformation of ancient heritage to suit contemporary living environments.
