Regional manager sets up bank loan without company permission

Gigabyte recently made shocking headlines when it announced that it would be leaving the partnership it had created with long time rival ASUS. Originally, the plan was to create a joint venture, where the two companies could cooperate on developing and manufacturing new products. Called Gigabyte United, the joint venture would have allowed both companies to share and take advantage of the other's resources.

This week, Gigabyte announced that it had lost roughly $5 million USD due to an internal scandal committed by one of its regional managers. Chang Chaosong, factory manager at Ningbo Gigabyte Technology in China, allegedly listed Gigabyte as a guarantor for a bank loan towards a third party loan. By being a guarantor, Gigabyte would be liable to repay the loan if the third party did not repay it.

Unfortunately for Gigabyte, the company or person in question that borrowed the money from the bank did not repay the borrowed money, and Gigabyte was held accountable for the loss. What shocked company officials however, was the fact that Chang did not request company permission before setting up the transaction.

Gigabyte is currently investigating Chang's actions and where and why the transaction was setup in the first place. Chang is no longer with Gigabyte.

Jewish controlled media companies are to blame for China's bad press?

Why would Jews hate China?

If Jews control the media, why can't we get better press for Israel and George Bush and the war in Iraq?

How come Arabs and Muslims get such good treatment in the press?

Our media tiptoes around that issue like a battered wife. It's afraid to report anything that makes Muslims look bad and always goes out of its way to balance those reports with stories about how swell Muslims are or how it's just a tiny, tiny minority that does bad things.

Only an idiot or a racist could watch our media and think it's controlled by Jews.

Uh, American media is 100% positive in regards to Israel. And usually negative toward China. I was in China around 2 years ago. I don't see why the average American has to be so ignorant about foreign affairs. WAY too much stereotyping and generalizing.

Have you watched any news stations anymore. There isn't a major news station here that doesn't blindly "support the president".

How come Arabs and Muslims get such good treatment in the press?

What? lol

Because it needs to be mentioned cause there are a LOT of ignorant people out there? And because it IS a minuscule minority that does those things. You're more likely to be struck by lightning than to die from a terrorist attack.

Quite true about the terrorist thing. You are MUCH more likely to be struck by lightening than to die in a terrorist attack, but most people want to focus on the somewhat 'preventable' terrorist attack than the lightning strike.

You are also right in that it is a VERY small minority of Muslims who do terrorists attacks.... however it is NOT such a small minority who SUPPORT them doing those attacks, at least until they kill someone in their own country!

The problem isn't really ignorant people. The problem is religion in general and the hatreds that spring up between people of religions and those who don't believe in any religion at all, like myself who is an atheist.

That could be solved by the religious idiots out there realizing that this time on earth is all you get, and that there is no heaven or hell or 'god' out there, but I don't see that happening anytime soon because EVERY TIME you try to bring that up with someone who has been raised with the religious idiocy since birth, they get ANGRY at you and will sometimes physically attack you!

I'm sorry, but all i got out of the second half of your statement is that you are atheist, and that people who have religion are closeminded and hate anyone who believes different from them. Unfortunately you are saying that your way is correct and that all others need to conform to your ideas to fix the problem. In your defense of the muslim religion you say that it is a SMALL MINORITY, but when you attack religion there isn't one bit of open mindedness in your arguement.
Here is a parallel to your arguement that "religious idiots" always get angry when you say that they need to realize that god doesn't exist and there is no heaven or hell.
Everytime you tell an athiest idiot that there is a heaven and hell and god does exist, they get angry at you and will sometimes physically attack you.
The problem here isn't religion or beliefs, it is intolerances among those who beleive anything, from atheism to christianity and wiccanism (is that a word)
I have no issue with atheists, or "Religious idiots from birth", I do however have a problem with anyone, and I mean anyone, saying others NEED to believe as they do.
You are being an intollerant person spouting out intollerance of other peoples religions that differ from yours.
A religion is a set of beliefs and practices generally held by a community. Atheism is a religion also.

Lightning is much more preventable than a terrorist attack, just stay away from open area.

Although I am religious, I do agree with your comment about religious idiots who did crazy things in all religion (christians included, like those abortion doctors killers).

To those disagreeing with Dactyl:

The media is not 100% behind Israel. Just look at how many times you see pictures of armed Israeli guards busting down a door and Palestinian mothers crying over their dead children. Quite a bit. Now look at how many times you see pictures of crying Israelis whose families have been bombed by Palestinians or pictures of Palestinian militias. Not so much. I've found that the front-page pictures in a newspaper tends to be the best indicator of the political leanings of the editor. Pictures have a powerful impact, and people reading a newspaper usually aren't looking at bias in the selection of pictures, which leads to pictures being an excellent way to influence your audience without making them realize it. Ditto for movies, but that's an entirely different discussion.

As for the Muslim thing, it is not the responsibility of the newspaper to report how great Muslims are, which is entirely subjective whereas responsible journalism strives for objectivity. That might be suitable for an editorial, but not for the main news section. Presenting such things as facts is a form of propaganda, just like running supposedly factual articles about how all Muslims want to eat Christian babies is propaganda. Two different sides of the same coin. It is also not the responsibility of the media to try to "balance" the news of its own accord, for the same reason. This is a subtle form of population brainwashing. It's no accident that governments in totalitarian regimes always take over the media immediately (usually before they're even in power): being able to filter the news through your own political bias is the most powerful form of brainwashing there is, and it is the responsibility of democratic journalists to try to avoid this filtering of the news as much as possible.

Finally, this reminds me of the media coverage surrounding the incident that happened in Minneapolis. Basically, a bunch of imams tried to act like terrorists so that they would be apprehended by airport security and be able to file complaints of discrimination. Doing things like shouting phrases used by terrorists in the middle of a crowded area, talking loudly about how America deserves to suffer for the hanging of Saddam, sitting in seats near the exits that weren't assigned to them and refusing to leave them, and requesting heavily reinforced seat beat extensions and laying them besides their feet. This was only reported in the press near Minneapolis at first and slowly trickled out from there via word of mouth. I remember reading an old copy of the Star Tribune at a Starbuck's and being shocked that I hadn't heard of it before. I lived in Fargo, only 4 hours away, and this was mentioned nowhere in that day's Forum. Yes, we do have a newspaper in Fargo, hahaha, very funny. Nor was it mentioned in the Times or the Journal. You'd think this would be a pretty newsworthy item everywhere, especially since at the time it appeared that they were terrorists attempting to hijack the plane. Also, Lord knows how much the media loves to give any publicity chaser *cough*jackthompson*cough* their 15 seconds in the spotlight. But not this one, for some strange reason.

*Total Aside* I hate Bill O'Reilly. I know this has nothing to do with the topic, but I've had a hard day and I feel the need to vent, hence the already bloated size of this post. That man is not a conservative! Just read his first book, it's class warfare at its finest. He does twist it into some pseudo-conservative slant, but a half-lie is the most dangerous lie of all.

The fact that the entire mass media is owned by Jews is hardly debatable. Internets - thanks.

Wow what a scary website. No advertising on any of the pages? Check out the front page and consider the source... GoVNN (pause) are you a facist anti-semite?

That website isn't the source. The source is reality. Try Google if you want to challenge the data, but like I said - the FACT of jewish media control is not debatable. That's what that word "fact" means.

Wow, what a site. I searched Minnesota Imam and got no results. I searched google with the same phrase and got 195,000 hits. Talk about censorship. Do these guys work for Yahoo?
