    Helped by the fact that the DHS has worked out the Chinese ones are basically PLA agents.

    U.S. revokes visas of 1,000 Chinese students, academics (9 Sep)

    Sept. 9 (UPI) — The Trump administration on Wednesday revoked the visas of more than 1,000 Chinese nationals under a late May presidential proclamation targeting academics and students accused of having ties to China’s military.

    All the rest of them are effectively agents also, since their families are hostage back home to them doing their duty for the Party.

    Helped by the fact that the DHS has worked out the Chinese ones are basically PLA agents.

    Our pre-eminent Government Research Organisation CSIRO, seems unable to work it out:

    Strategic experts have expressed alarm at a CSIRO partnership with a top Chinese marine science institute that undertakes military-related research, including the ­development of a satellite-based laser to detect foreign submarines.

    The Centre for Southern Hemisphere Oceans Research is a joint project between the CSIRO and China’s Qingdao National Laboratory for Marine Science and Technology to better understand ocean temperatures and currents, and the role they play in climate change.

    It is headed by CSIRO chief ­research scientist Cai Wenju, who is also a professor at the Qingdao laboratory, which leads China’s “Transparent Ocean” initiative.

    The laboratory’s ­Project Guanlan, launched in May 2018, aims to use satellite-mounted light detection and ranging technology (LIDAR) to pinpoint submarines at depths of up to 500m.

    The lab also undertakes ­research with Russia in the Arctic Circle, and is known for its analysis of big data — from satellite sensors, underwater drones and “intelligent buoys” — to enable real-time understanding of the marine environment.

    The number of foreign students in Australia has not dropped.
    It has gone up.
    There has been a 12 percent reduction in Chinese students, and a 14 percent increase in Indian students in 2020.
    Here’s the source.
    The universities are biding their time until travel restrictions get eased, and hope to continue with business as usual in 2021.

    So where are CCP parents sending their children to get a quality Marxist education now?

    Bad news if you are a 2nd rate academic at a Dawkins university or a $1m + VC anywhere.

    Who is going to staff the 7-11s and servos now?

    Bad news if

    It’s not bad news.

    Overseas student numbers in Australia have not decreased in 2020.

    This seems to be a bizarrely well-kept secret.

    Too close to Oakey and Amberley: thanks but no thanks!

    But there is already a top Marxist teacher there! OK, he’s retired, but I’m sure he would take up the task willingly.

    There needs to be considerable consolidation in the university sector. Several Australian unis should simply close. There are going to be a lot of gleaming campuses – financed by money from full fee paying overseas students, to attract ever more full fee paying overseas students – that become white elephants. Good. The sector should serve the Australian community as its first priority, and that was not what was happening. The sector needs to shrink and fragment. Far fewer young Australians should be going to university and getting useless degrees.

    On current numbers, that’s not going to happen.

    The university sector has sailed through COVID unscathed (so far).

    It’s an interesting question: how come the universities experienced no drop in overseas students? How did they pull off that magic trick?
