(Reuters) - China will eventually overtake the United States as the global superpower but its rise is not making it more popular, according to a major global survey by Pew Research Center published on Thursday.

The survey, which canvassed the views of nearly 40,000 people in 39 countries, found a majority of respondents expected China, now the world's second biggest economy, to take top slot.Slightly more than a third of respondents thought China was already the leading economic power, up from 20 percent in 2008. Over the same period the same figure for the United States dropped from 47 percent to 41 percent.

However, China's economic ascent seems to be no guarantee of making friends on the global stage.Only half of respondents had a favorable view of China, compared to 63 percent for the United States, while far higher numbers said they saw the United States as a "partner". China's popularity has largely stalled since 2007.

AMERICA has its “Gossip Girl”, Brazil has “Mulheres Ricas” (“Rich Women”) and India has its Bollywood confections. Films and television programmes that serve as little more than showcases for the lavish lifestyles of the fabulously wealthy are a global phenomenon. But the furore surrounding a new smash hit set among the fashion houses of Shanghai is uniquely Chinese. The reaction to this movie is laying bare the gaping chasm between a socially conscious older generation and its individualistic, “aspirational” youth.

China: The electronic wastebasket of the world

http://edition.cnn.com/2013/05/30/world/asia/china-electronic-waste-e-waste/index.html

Guiyu, China (CNN) -- Did you ever wonder what happens to your old laptop or cellphone when you throw it away?

Chances are some of your old electronic junk will end up in China.

According to a recent United Nations report, "China now appears to be the largest e-waste dumping site in the world."

E-waste, or electronic waste, consists of everything from scrapped TVs, refrigerators and air conditioners to that old desktop computer that may be collecting dust in your closet.

Many of these gadgets were initially manufactured in China. Through a strange twist of global economics, much of this electronic junk returns to China to die.

"According to United Nations data, about 70% of electronic waste globally generated ended up in China," said Ma Tianjie, a spokesman for the Beijing office of Greenpeace.
