Welcome to 'Today' - an hour of world news and analysis -- from a different perspective. I'm Jingnan.

Coming up:

--Google has fired the employee who wrote a controversial internal memo, criticizing the company for its efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in its workforce.

--Global Times reports Chinese businessmen are commissioning videos featuring African children for personal and business purposes.

--A draft law in China's Sichuan province is encouraging its younger generations to live with their aging parents, so that they can play a more active role in taking care of the elderly.

--A survey shows the new middle class is also increasingly valuing experiences over expensive commodities, with most respondents showing a predilection for experiences such as learning, traveling, socializing, and entertainment.

For more on this, CRI' Jingnan is now joined in the studio by Brian Kopczynski, American journalist based in Beijing, and my colleague Manling, host of A light on literature and Language Café.
