    Panda death in Thailand sparks outrage in China

    China is sending a team of experts to Thailand - after the death of one of its panda diplomats sparked outrage on social media. Chuang Chuang died in a Thai zoo on Monday (September 16). Chinese social media lit up with outrage at the unexpected death, with a hashtag drawing in 250 million views on Weibo. One user said 'Thailand is so evil... we shouldn't be renting out pandas after this!' Beijing has been engaged in what's often dubbed panda diplomacy since the 1950s. Using their iconic bears as signs of goodwill across the world. President Xi recently presented Russia's president Putin with two furry ambassadors in Moscow. In France, President Macron's wife was named godmother of a feisty young cub back in 2017. Now Chinese Weibo users are saying 'no more pandas for Thailand'. Zoo staff held a moment of silence ahead of a news conference on Tuesday (September 17). One zookeeper said the staff loved and nurtured Chuang Chuang, and hopes everyone will miss him like they do. The cause of his death is still unknown. The zoo says they can't perform an autopsy on the 19-year-old until the Chinese authorities arrive on Thursday (September 19). Pandas generally live around 14 to 20 years in the wild, and up to 30 in captivity - according to the WWF.

    Korean Investor Group Acquires Stake in One AT&T Plaza in Dallas

    (Bloomberg) -- A group of Korean institutional buyers has acquired a majority stake in AT&T Inc.’s global headquarters in Dallas, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.The deal price and size of the stake weren’t disclosed, but the entire building, One AT&T Plaza, is valued at about $250 million, the person said, asking not to be named because the matter is private. The buyers within the Korean consortium also weren’t disclosed.The 37-story tower, built in 1983, has been the global headquarters for AT&T since 2008. It is centered in AT&T’s downtown campus, which includes seven office and parking buildings over five blocks. CBRE Group Inc. represented the seller, Woods Capital Management LLC, on the deal.Dallas-based Woods Capital didn’t immediately respond to emails and calls seeking comment. A spokesman for CBRE declined to comment.One AT&T Plaza is fully leased by the telecommunications giant through the end of 2031, with no termination options. The building houses about 3,000 employees of AT&T, which is investing about $100 million to renovate its entire downtown campus.Foreign investors are increasingly turning to U.S. second-tier markets, where yield prospects are more attractive than in costly coastal areas such as New York and San Francisco. Dallas is one of the most popular secondary markets for foreign capital in the U.S., with $5 billion invested in development in the central business district since 2010, according to CBRE.There’s also growing interest from Korean buyers in U.S. real estate. Earlier this month, China’s Anbang Insurance Group Co. agreed to sell a luxury hotel portfolio for $5.8 billion to Mirae Asset Management Co. of South Korea.To contact the reporter on this story: Natalie Wong in Toronto at nwong133@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Rob Urban at robprag@bloomberg.net, Christine MaurusFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
