京东买手赴澳牧场 10种烹饪测进口牛肉口感 为京东11.11“优中选优”挑好物

11月1日0点,“11.11京东全球好物节”火热开启,京东的好物、低价、好服务被全国数以亿计的城乡消费者分享。其中,京东生鲜数据再创新高,开场仅30分钟,成交额同比增长近6.5倍。

 

值得关注的是,作为京东生鲜牛肉品类的优质合作方,中国肉类品牌恒都在京东平台上的销售数据尤其亮眼。截至1日上午9点30分,恒都品牌销售额已超去年11月1日全天,同时间段销售金额比去年增长4倍。目前,恒都已成为京东生鲜肉禽冷冻品类销量第一品牌。

 

在销量飘红的背后,不得不提到京东生鲜买手对于每一件生鲜产品“百里挑一”的敬业付出,他们经常出差到万里之外的原产地,深入到牧场及生产车间实地考察,实地评测牛肉品质,只为帮消费者“优中选优”带来最适合中国人口味、最美味的生鲜产品。

 

京东11.11前远赴澳洲原产地 从源头监督品质 保证每一块牛肉品质上乘

在澳大利亚内陆的一家肉牛牧场,京东牛肉买手Bruce正在查看安格斯牛的养殖情况。“牧场拥有充足的降水和日照,地处‘黄金纬度’,一年四季青草茂盛多汁。这里的安格斯牛易肥育,养殖周期在2到3年,出肉率高,胴体品质好。”Bruce一边参观,一边用手机记留着关键信息。

“恒都”在澳大利亚的肉牛养殖基地

 

近年来,随着国人生活水平的提高和健康饮食意识的提升,高蛋白、低脂肪的牛肉已成为深受众多家庭喜爱的肉制品之一。在京东11.11正式拉开帷幕之前,Bruce就通过分析京东大数据,预测今年京东11.11大促期间,牛肉的销量将较往年会有爆发式增长。为此,他和品牌商恒都联系,要求尽快加大澳洲进口牛肉的供应量,充分保障京东用户在11.11期间能买到品质最好的牛肉。“我要求每一件在京东售卖的牛肉产品都‘优中选优’,为消费者提供最高品质的牛肉。” Bruce谈到当时备战11.11的想法和决心。

 

为了确保上架京东的进口牛肉品质,在11.11正式开始前两周,Bruce决定购买航班机票,亲赴恒都的澳大利亚牧场,对牛肉的产能和品质有更深度、全面的了解,并对产品的生产、加工等环节进行品质监督。

“恒都”在澳大利亚牧场的肉牛生长状况

 

“京东买手的职责,就是要从源头把控品质,包括肉牛养殖、加工生产、仓储运输等环节的监督。通过原产地溯源,以及亲自品尝和挑选牛肉,确保入库京东仓库的每一块牛肉都符合京东标准,并适合中国人口味、新鲜且营养价值高。”

 

以10种烹饪方式评测澳洲牛肉 只为选择最适合国人的食材

 

“中国是美食大国,对于牛肉的烹饪方式多种多样,而中国人的口味和西方也有一定的区别。” Bruce表示,“我来澳洲原产地牧场,不仅看加工厂规模、切割技术、冷冻效果、物流速度等生产指标,还会亲自烹饪和品尝不同类别、不同部位的牛肉,从中精挑细选,给中国消费者以最好的牛肉商品。”

 

Bruce参观完牧场后,请品牌商把自己带到镇上的一家华人超市,在这里他购买了丁香、桂皮、味精、酱油、料酒等中国人餐桌的调味品。随后他来到澳洲一家餐厅的厨房,用中国人喜欢的烹饪手段,包括炖、卤、酱、红烧、烤、煎、炒、涮等10种方式,不同维度考察了不同牛肉部位的口感和味道。

京东生鲜买手Bruce烹饪的牛肉

 

在Bruce看来,牛肉的高品质是筛选的前提,但优质牛肉是否符合中国人的烹调方式和口味偏好,只能通过自己来尝试了。大约一个多小时后,一锅香气腾腾的炖牛肉大功告成,瞬间肉香四溢。Bruce一边品鉴,一边继续用手机记录:“从外观看,牛肉出锅后色泽较深,纹理细致;品尝后肉质紧实,口感较韧,富含肉味,汤汁丰富……”经过两天的澳洲溯源之旅,Bruce精选出了最适合中国消费者的几款牛肉,作为今年京东11.11的爆款重点推荐给消费者。第三天一早,他又匆匆赶赴机场,回到北京继续为京东11.11备战。

 

据悉,今年11.11期间,京东为消费者准备了12亿件低价好物,每款好物都由京东买手根据消费者需求精挑细选而来。可以说,京东是高品质商品最集中的综合电商网站,也是选品最精、品控最严的电商网站,这都离不开京东买手团“百里挑一”、从源头把控品质的努力。在今年京东11.11期间,京东生鲜开展了全品类满299减150大促,还有许多好物参与了京东“超级百亿补贴、千亿优惠”计划,全力打造生鲜产品好物低价主场。

京东押宝成功?双11中国原生态猪肉遭疯抢

 

在近期猪肉价格暴涨的趋势下,猪肉始终是人们关注的焦点。为了让消费者吃到更高品质的猪肉,京东提供从销售渠道到全程冷链、再到技术的全链条扶持,要让中国原生态猪肉重回国人餐桌。

事实证明,消费者对高品质猪肉的需求也在看涨,11月1日当天,京东生鲜共销售出24吨黑猪肉,成交额同比增长500%。其中,中国原生态猪的代表精气神山黑猪占据了30%销量份额。同时,得益于京东史上最大力度的11.11优惠政策,以及京东对精气神山黑猪全产业链环节的深度参与,精气神山黑猪在京东11.11期间的价格大幅优惠,成为猪肉价格持续上涨的“终结者”。

 

 

11.11京东全球好物超级百亿补贴,给人真实惠

尽管双11对于大多人而言,已经成为商家打折促销活动的代名词,但商家想要真正触达到更加广大的消费者,不仅需要追溯每一位消费者的需求,更要带来真切的优惠。在今年京东11.11全球好物节期间,京东推出了超级百亿补贴、千亿优惠计划,面向数亿消费者,通过众多秒杀爆品、大额神券、预售会场定金膨胀不止5倍等形式,让用户每天在多个会场、多个频道全方位感受京东11.11主场力度。

 

在最近猪肉价格不断飙升,人们每次买猪肉时,看到不断变化的猪肉价格,总免不了要唏嘘一番的情况下,京东11.11通过超级百亿补贴、千亿优惠,让消费者以更加实惠的价格买到了曾经“看价却步”的猪肉,让猪肉价格更加亲民。也正因此,精气神山黑猪11月1日当天京东生鲜售出的24吨黑猪肉中,就占据了30%销量份额。

 

京东精选中国原生态猪肉绿色生态养育带来高品质

随着人们的生活水平的日益提高,消费需求不断升级,对于购买商品品质的要求也在不断地提高,尤其是在吃、穿、住、行等方面。其中对于吃的需求,人们已经不仅仅满足于吃饱、好吃,还要吃的生态、健康。京东显然早已察觉到了人们需求的变化,要让中国原生态猪肉重回国人餐桌。2017年,中国原生态猪的代表精气神山黑猪,作为唯一的黑猪品牌入驻京东7FRESH,正是瞄准了人们对于吃的需求升级。

 

精神气山黑猪不仅肉质十分香嫩,还有着如同顶级牛肉一样的大理石纹。这完全得益于它们生态健康的养殖方式,全部在东北长白山林间散养,以东北黑土地上的优质作物为食,比如玉米、大豆或山间野菜野果等,居住环境也是十分开阔、干净、舒适的猪舍,并且每头猪至少要饲养300天以上才能出栏。

 

 

由此可见,中国原生态猪肉成为今年双十一的销量新爆款,真实地反应出了人们对低价、好物、好服务的真正需求。京东将今年的京东11.11打造成了好物、低价、好服务的新主场,不仅仅是猪肉生鲜,在整个京东11.11期间还将有12亿件低价好物参与其中,让人们享受到京东11.11超级百亿补贴、千亿优惠给自己生活带来的福利。

京东要让中国原生态猪肉重回国人餐桌,双十一推低价原生态猪肉

今年的双十一,有一大批人的目光聚焦在猪肉上。不断上涨的猪肉价格不仅牵动着全国的经济,还牵动着国民的饮食与生活质量。如今,纯工业化养殖的猪肉一统餐桌。但在注重安全、健康、自然的消费者眼中,模拟原生态方式养殖的猪肉无疑是更好的选择。

为了让消费者吃到更高品质的猪肉,京东给予了原生态养猪产业链全链条的支持,要让中国原生态猪肉重回国人餐桌。今年,得益于京东11.11超级百亿补贴、千亿优惠,京东联手中国原生态猪的代表精气神山黑猪,展开了一场史上最大规模低价促销战,让消费者可以尽情购买低价好猪肉。今年贴不起的秋膘,京东帮你贴!

 

京东超级百亿补贴买中国原生态猪肉——价格低

让消费者以真低价买到好商品,就需要平台、商家在严把质量和品质的基础上,能提供实实在在的补贴和优惠。今年的双十一,京东就做出了一次声势浩大,而且拳拳到肉的优惠福利。

在整个京东11.11期间,京东将推出12亿低价好物,提供超级百亿补贴,实现千亿优惠,为PLUS会员至少省90亿元。同时,作为高品质消费的主阵地,京东在这个京东11.11将推出众多秒杀爆品,以及每天可领的大额神券、单人最高1111元的“城城分现金”、预售会场定金膨胀不止5倍等多种优惠形式,继续让消费者尽享爆品好物。京东首推的长白山精气神山黑猪也参与其中,部分优质爆品在11.1当天推出了五折优惠,极大地满足了消费者对优质低价猪肉好物的需求。

如此给力的京东优惠,也给价格不断飙红的猪肉价格,进行了一次降温。除了猪肉,京东生鲜还携手7FRESH七鲜超市,在今年京东11.11为消费者准备了20万吨生鲜食材,并释放了全品类满299减150等大促信息,让我们餐桌的每一个角落都物超所值,真真切切地为我们带来了实惠。

 

生态+智能养黑猪——京东赋能中国原生态猪肉品质好

2017年,精气神山黑猪作为唯一的黑猪品牌入驻京东7FRESH,并于次年获得优质供应商称号。此后,京东7FRESH联合吉林精气神“山黑猪”品牌达成股权投资战略合作。在京东7FRESH强大的资源优势下,精气神山黑猪正在向着“国民猪肉”的品牌目标迈进,将高品质、健康安全的猪肉产品送到消费者的餐桌。

 

长久以来,进口猪因其“增重快、饲料报酬高、瘦肉率高”等特点成为国内种猪厂的主要品种。但5-6个月的生长时间,完全不足以让猪肉内的脂肪充分沉淀,进而影响到口感。同时生猪饲养方式工厂化,饲料中添加了大量的有害添加剂,食品安全危机四伏。

而精气神山黑猪作为中国原生态猪的代表,则是生态养殖,它们在长白山山林中散养,有着十分清洁、宽敞的猪舍,以东北黑土地优质农作物如玉米、大豆,或是山间野菜野果作为饲料,并且至少养足超过300天才能出栏。这种生态的生长环境,让猪肉具有与顶级牛肉一样的大理石纹,肉质香嫩无比,肉香、油香兼备,尝一口就把你带回归儿时的记忆。

通过京东的帮助,精气神山黑猪还建立起了“农田到餐桌”的现代智能生产体系,不仅在养殖地区设有现代化神农物联网设备,还应用了京东的“猪脸识别”技术、区块链防伪追溯平台,让消费者知道所吃的每一块猪肉的安全健康情况,为产品提供了可追溯的保障。

 

京东11.11全球好物节已经拉开帷幕。通过更有强度的价格补贴,更加优质的商品与服务,京东实实在在地为消费者的生活带来了实惠和保障,将京东11.11打造成了好物、低价、好服务的新主场。京东也将通过提供从销售渠道到全程冷链、再到技术的全链条扶持,让中国原生态猪肉重回国人餐桌。

Teens on TikTok have no clue they’re perpetuating racist stereotypes

By Brianna Holt 
TikTok is stoking a pop culture phenomenon rooted in a terrible history.

 

When TikTok launched in 2016, the Chinese app had to carve out a space alongside already popular video-sharing platforms like Instagram, Musical.ly, and Dubsmash. Just two years later, TikTok became the world’s most-downloaded app, surpassing Instagram in 2018.

TikTok is known for its trending internet challenges—like the Haribo Challenge, Fake Travel Challenge, and Raindrop Challenge—with the stunts oftentimes screen-recorded and then posted to other social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook. The Chinese-built app also has created a new wave of internet personas, like E-girls and E-boys. But if TikTok is a place where internet memes with teenage appeal get turned into videos featuring real-life teens, it’s also a place where the phenomenon of white teens perpetuating racist stereotypes is on the rise.

Blackface without the face paint

Videos from TikTok are surfacing all over the internet, oftentimes featuring white teens imitating stereotypical lifestyles or characteristics of black people or other people of color. As they nonchalantly change their accents, use appropriated slang terms, and demonstrate certain mannerisms for comedy, it’s obvious there is a gap in their understanding of, and respect for, different cultures. Videos of mostly young white teens portraying fictitious minority characters for the mere purpose of entertainment aren’t only cringe-worthy, offensive, and weird—they perpetuate racist cliches.

A plethora of young white women like Woah Vicky, who masquerade as black women on Instagram, have made names for themselves on social media for their heightened culture appropriation. It’s not altogether different from what happened to Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who passed as a black woman for years and held leadership positions in black community organizations. While the videos populating TikTok tend not to show teens wearing blackface or blatantly referring to themselves as black people, their stars are taking everything but the burden of what it is to be black in America while simultaneously using black culture as a way to grow their own social following.

A deep-rooted history

The obsession with black culture by white people has been an uncomfortably bizarre phenomenon for decades, but portrayals of black people by white people for entertainment purposes goes back even further. Blackface has many forms, but we typically only associate it with non-black people using makeup to portray a black person. In order to understand how the perhaps non-malicious but also unconsciously racist trend of imitating or pretending to be black on social media, without painting your face, is also a form of blackface, one must first understand the history of blackface and its relationship to white identity.

Emerging in the US in the 1820s, blackface often appeared in minstrel shows that depicted people of African descent in comical forms. After the Civil War, when racial tensions were especially heightened, blackface became crueler than ever and was often performed at “coon shows.” During these minstrel shows, black people were portrayed as lazy, stupid, ignorant, criminal, and hyper-sexual. The impact of these shows has lasted for decades, creating harmful stereotypes widely seen in advertising, propaganda, literature, and film. Jim Crow, which inspired the name given to the Jim Crow laws of the American South, was actually one of the first fictional blackface characters recorded in popular culture, often paired with exaggerated African American jargon, painted-on large lips, and unintelligent behavior.

The cultural dynamics got even more complicated  in the early 20th century, when people from other ethnic groups began using blackface either to exert their social rank over that of black people, or in a bid for acceptance by other white people. It was used by Irish, Italian, and Jewish performers, for example, in order to signal that they, too, were deserving of the privileges of being white in America, and to dissolve their own ethnic tensions. In his book Love & Theft: Blackface Minstrelsy and the American Working Class, cultural historian Eric Lott describes the transformation of blackface as an act that “assuaged an acute sense of insecurity by indulging feelings of racial superiority.” European immigrants needed to prove their whiteness and what better way to do so than showcasing that they were not as low as African Americans?

It was also around this time that white women could be found using blackface as a way to get into show business, oftentimes singing in black dialect and acting like black women in their roles. In some instances, there was an underlying sense of appreciation for black culture by those who put on blackface. Actors and jazz musicians recognized the talent of black artists and aspired to match their aptitude. But they simultaneously mocked them, creating a strange combination of obsession and bigotry.

More recently, when public figures like Virginia governor Ralph Northam and his state attorney general Mark Herring were exposed for  having worn blackface as undergraduates, the internet shamed them and called for the cancelation of their political careers. Meanwhile, when teens on TikTok act as if they are black, with their made-up mannerisms, dialects, and jargon, we call it a trend.

But what is the difference between their portrayal and that of the actors in minstrel shows? Where is the outrage that followed the revelations about the college antics of our elected officials?  All of these groups would mock a community they are not a part of, for their own personal gain or as a form of entertainment.

Social media meets segregation

Is TikTok specifically responsible for the rise in digital blackface? Not exactly. The more likely culprit is mass-media consumption, combined with stubbornly segregated schools and neighborhoods.

According to a report from UCLA’s Civil Rights Project, in 2016, 40% of African American students in the US were in schools with 90% or more students of color. This isn’t just the legacy of racism in the US South; the UCLA group finds that New York is consistently one of the most segregated states in the nation.

Access to other cultural groups can be found online, of course. However, the access is limited and usually not a direct educational exchange, often inhibiting, rather than cultivating, a deeper understanding of other groups. Many teens learn about other cultures from the media they’re constantly consuming, rather than having real-life relationships and friendships with people who belong to the cultures they’re tapping into. As a result of their real-life segregation paired with their access to social media, not only are young people unconsciously perpetuating racist stereotypes, they’re appearing foolish to millions of people online in the process.

For example, in these two videos (one and two) that have gone viral on social media, several young white people are seen throwing up gang signs, seemingly unknowingly, as a funny trend. It can be assumed that they saw these signs somewhere online, thought they were cool, and taught them to their friends. They may very well know nothing of the meaning or connotation of these signals—context that probably would be provided in a more diverse circle. But who is available to let them know the actual meaning  of what they’re doing, if their schools, neighborhoods, and social circles are not diverse?

More work to do

It’s not enough for us to assume Gen-Z is the most “woke” generation or that their access to different people online will dissolve racism. While many of these teens would never dare paint their face black, and probably would not hesitate to go online and call out someone who did, they clearly don’t see the similarity in their “comical” recorded actions. They may not have ill intentions, but it is apparent that their understanding of racial stereotypes has not evolved.

Moreover, if these young TikTok users believe the stereotypes they see in movies, TV shows, or even on their social media apps are an accurate representation of black people as a whole, then that’s a huge signifier that upcoming generations are not as integrated as we think.

Optimistically, the preponderance of TikTok users obsessed with “acting black” perhaps suggests that black culture is cool, exciting, and something a lot of people wish to be a part of but don’t know how to emulate appropriately. But these teens are making the mocking of cultures a part of their own culture. And even if the intention is not to be racist or harmful, the legacy of blackface ensures that it is.

Tales From the Teenage Cancel Culture

What’s cancel culture really like? Ask a teenager. They know.

By Sanam Yar and

 

Anthony Freda

A few weeks ago, Neelam, a high school senior, was sitting in class at her Catholic school in Chicago. After her teacher left the room, a classmate began playing “Bump N’ Grind,” an R. Kelly song.

Neelam, 17, had recently watched the documentary series “Surviving R. Kelly” with her mother. She said it had been “emotional to take in as a black woman.”

Neelam asked the boy and his cluster of friends to stop playing the track, but he shrugged off the request. “‘It’s just a song,’” she said he replied. “‘We understand he’s in jail and known for being a pedophile, but I still like his music.’”

She was appalled. They were in a class about social justice. They had spent the afternoon talking about Catholicism, the common good and morality. The song continued to play.

That classmate, who is white, had done things in the past that Neelam described as problematic, like casually using racist slurs — not name-calling — among friends. After class, she decided he was “canceled,” at least to her.

Her decision didn’t stay private; she told a friend that week that she had canceled him. She told her mother too. She said that this meant she would avoid speaking or engaging with him in the future, that she didn’t care to hear what he had to say, because he wouldn’t change his mind and was beyond reason.

“When it comes to cancel culture, it’s a way to take away someone’s power and call out the individual for being problematic in a situation,” Neelam said. “I don’t think it’s being sensitive. I think it’s just having a sense of being observant and aware of what’s going on around you.”

The term “canceled” “sort of spawned from YouTube,” said Ben, a high school junior in Providence, R.I. (Because of their age and the situations involved, The New York Times has granted partial anonymity to some people. We have confirmed details with parents or schoolmates.)

He talked about the YouTuber James Charles, who was canceled by the platform’s beauty community in May after some drama with his mentor, Tati Westbrook, also a YouTuber, and a vitamin entrepreneur. That was a big cancellation, widely covered, that helped popularize the term. Teenagers often bring it up.

Ben, 17, said that people should be held accountable for their actions, whether they’re famous or not, but that canceling someone “takes away the option for them to learn from their mistakes and kind of alienates them.”

His school doesn’t have much bullying, he said, and the word carries a gentler meaning in its hallways, used in passing to tease friends. Often, the joke extends beyond people. One week, after students were debating the safety of e-cigarettes and vaping, some declared that Juul was canceled.

[Here’s what Barack Obama has to say about cancel culture.]

It took some time for L to understand that she had been canceled. She was 15 and had just returned to a school she used to attend. “All the friends I had previously had through middle school completely cut me off,” she said. “Ignored me, blocked me on everything, would not look at me.”

Months went by. Toward the end of sophomore year, she reached out over Instagram to a former friend, asking why people were not talking to her. It was lunchtime; the person she asked was sitting in the cafeteria with lots of people and so they all piled on. It was like an avalanche, L said.

Within a few minutes she got a torrent of direct messages from the former friend on Instagram, relaying what they had said. One said she was a mooch. One said she was annoying and petty. One person said that she had ruined her self-esteem. Another said that L was an emotional leech who was thirsty for validation.

“This put me in a situation where I thought I had done all these things,” L said. “I was bad. I deserved what was happening.”

Two years have passed since then. “You can do something stupid when you’re 15, say one thing and 10 years later that shapes how people perceive you,” she said. “We all do cringey things and make dumb mistakes and whatever. But social media’s existence has brought that into a place where people can take something you did back then and make it who you are now.”

In her junior year, L said, things got better. Still, that rush of messages and that social isolation have left a lasting impact. “I’m very prone to questioning everything I do,” she said. “‘Is this annoying someone?’ ‘Is this upsetting someone?’”

“I have issues with trusting perfectly normal things,” she said. “That sense of me being some sort of monster, terrible person, burden to everyone, has stayed with me to some extent. There’s still this sort of lingering sense of: What if I am?”

Alex is 17, and she hears the word “canceled” every day at her high school outside Atlanta. It can be a joke, but it can also suggest that an offending person won’t be tolerated again. Alex thinks of it as a permanent label. “Now they’ll forever be thought of as that action, not for the person they are,” she said.

“It’s not like you’ll sit away from them at lunch or something,” she said. “It’s just a lingering thought in the back of your mind, a negative connotation.”

During a mock trial practice a couple of weeks before a big competition, the song “Act Up” by City Girls was playing. One of Alex’s teammates, who is of Indian descent, rapped along with the lyrics, which include a racist slur.

The students, who until that point had been chatty because their teacher wasn’t in the room, went silent. “I was the only black person in the room,” Alex said.

Alex and another friend on the team explained to their teammate why he shouldn’t have used that word. “We’re a team, so we can’t have tension exist there,” she said.

He said he understood why they were uncomfortable but that it wouldn’t necessarily prevent him from using it again when singing along. He wouldn’t take it back.

“You’re canceled, sis,” her friend told the teammate. It was partially to lighten the mood, but also partly serious.

“It’s a joke, but still, we understand you have that opinion now and we’re not going to get closer,” Alex said.

Despite his initial tough stance, the teammate didn’t rap the word again, and Alex said that he had remained respectful during practice. The team took ninth and 11th place at the competition.

It was orientation day for freshmen at Sarah Lawrence College, where one new student was unnerved by a social justice group’s presentation. The presenters discussed pronoun use and called on the entering freshmen to “‘battle heteronormativity and cisgender language,’” the student said.

Even if you accidentally misgendered someone, the new students were told, you needed to be either called out or called in. (“Called in” means to be gently led to understand your error; call-outs are more aggressive.) The presenters emphasized that the impact on the person who was misgendered was what mattered, regardless of the intent of the person who had misgendered them.

The freshman thought back to a time when her father had misgendered a friend of hers. Her father had asked her to apologize on his behalf. She did. “‘I only get mad when people intentionally try to misgender me because they feel like they have to correct who I am,’” she recalled her friend saying.

Sarah Lawrence has fewer than 1,500 undergraduates. One upperclassman she became friends with said that she had been canceled in her own freshman year.

But, this upperclassman said, the politics enforced through cancellation don’t always fit neatly into the social dynamics of college.

“I think where it loses me, we’re taking these systems that are applying huge abstract ideas of identity’s role and we’re shrinking it into these interpersonal, one-on-one, liberal arts things,” the upperclassman said.

Among the upperclassman’s friend group now, the idea of cancellation is “basically a joke.” Too many people had been canceled. At a recent party the upperclassman had attended, one guy said, “‘If you haven’t been canceled, you’re canceled.’”

One night during Mike’s freshman year at a New York state college, he and a group of friends were headed to a party downtown. As they were waiting for their Uber, someone cracked a political joke, and then the casual conversation turned confrontational. One of Mike’s friends asked his roommate, D, if he was a Trump supporter.

D had a history of making the group uncomfortable. Mike and their mutual friend Phoebe said that he would make sexist, homophobic and racist remarks in past hangouts.

D said he did support the president — an anomaly in their liberal friend group — and “blew up” at the friend who asked the question. When the friend tried to change the subject, he became more upset. Mike stepped between the two to defuse the situation. “He got in my friend’s face, and that was the last straw,” Mike said.

He tried to cool D down; it didn’t work. D called Mike a homophobic slur, multiple times. The group split up. Mike didn’t return to his dorm that night, staying at a friend’s place instead.

“Even before this, we could tell, if I weren’t roommates with him, we wouldn’t have been friends,” Mike said. “So that was the breaking point for me, him saying that when I was sticking up for him.”

D left an apology note on Mike’s desk, which mostly tried to “justify his actions,” Mike said. “That set in my mind that he didn’t really feel bad about what he did,” he said. “He just felt bad for himself, that he would be looked at in a different light.”

A couple of days later, Phoebe, Mike and D sat down and D repeated the apology. Phoebe and Mike heard him out but said it didn’t clear him of wrongdoing and that he would have to demonstrate that he was different now. Both said that while D appeared sad about losing his friends, tearing up during their discussion, he didn’t show remorse.

Other friends didn’t accept the apology. “We wouldn’t tolerate it anymore, we cut him out of our lives,” Phoebe said.

Thus canceled, D moved from sadness to frustration and anger, Phoebe said. He grew “very bitter,” she said. She noticed that he had unfollowed and blocked the group on Snapchat and other social media a few weeks later.

“He did feel bullied by this whole canceled idea,” she said. “But in this case, no one felt bad doing it, because he didn’t really take responsibility for a lot of the things he said.”

Mike, though, still lives with D. He had signed on to live with him before the ordeal. They don’t speak. D has stopped acknowledging Mike and most everyone from their old group. “I’m definitely not living with him next year,” Mike said.

Phoebe managed to keep things civil. “Every time we see him, I still say hi,” she said. Sometimes, but not always, he nods or says hi back.

12大类指标剔6万商品 上千人次参与检查检测:京东实施史上最大规模11.11质检行动

11月1日, 11.11京东全球好物节正式开启的第一天,“京东质量督查联盟”签约仪式在北京举行,这也标志着京东品控部门通过实施商品质量指数筛选、溯源检查、入仓检测、神秘抽检四大举措全面强化京东11.11期间全链条的品质管控。

“京东质量督查联盟”由包括权威质检机构和行业协会在内的36家机构组成。在大促前和大促期间,京东品控专家协同联盟内质检机构专家前往全国各地的京东仓库和京东平台上销售的品牌的生产源头,驻仓、入厂对近万个品类的商品进行现场监督检查和抽查抽检,以保障消费者产品品质。大规模邀请专业机构在大促期间前往电商仓库及品牌商工厂进行全产业链检查抽检,这在电商行业尚属首次。

京东质量督查联盟”由包括权威质检机构和行业协会在内的36家机构组成

 

汇集最多高品质商品 四道关把好京东11.11商品品质“”

 

京东零售集团平台生态部品质提升部负责人孙彬在联盟成立仪式上介绍,京东之所以成为最受用户信赖的综合零售平台,汇集最多高品质商品,京东实施行业领先的“全链条品控措施”是重要的保障举措。今年京东11.11前,京东品控部门全面强化了包括商品质量指数筛选、溯源检查、入仓检测、神秘抽检四大举措的全链条品质管控。

今年京东11.11前夕,京东首次将“商品质量指数”作为报名参加大促的门槛,这套指数包括消费者评论、退换修、客诉、京东及政府相关部门检测结果等12大类指标,京东品控部门按照这12大类指标评估,只有成绩优异的品牌和商品才能进入今年的京东11.11大促,即使合格但不够优异的禁止参与大促,经过评估筛选,6万件商品被剔除出11.11大促。

 

在用商品质量指数进行评估筛选的同时,在品牌商生产备货阶段,京东品控团队就与“京东质量督查联盟”中的第三质检机构专家前往1000个生产源头和工厂车间进行溯源检查,现场核实品牌商的经营能力,商品品质管控能力;同时,对生产环节中的关键质量点进行监督审核,对商品进行现场抽查检测。

品牌方通过以上两道关后还要接受“入仓检测环节”。在商品进入京东仓库的时,京东品控团队联合“京东质量督查联盟”中的第三方质检机构的质检专家对商品进行拆箱抽检,现场对商品质量进行检查和检测,品质合格的商品才能进入京东的仓库,入仓检查覆盖京东平台几乎全部品类。

在此后的销售环节,京东还会有随机的“神秘抽检”,在11.11大促前后,神秘抽检的力度和频次将比日常提升200%。所谓神秘抽检,就是京东邀请第三方机构人员担任“神秘买手”,匿名购买京东商品,收货后送往检测机构。神秘抽检覆盖京东平台上销售的所有品类,涉及诸如致病微生物、耐磨性等数千个检测项目,神秘抽检一旦发现问题,京东会对商家采取约谈、处罚违约金、下架、关店、停止合作等处罚举措。

36家行业协会和质检机构加盟 打造京东11.11好物低价好服务的新主场

 

据孙彬介绍,这次11.11京东全球好物节,京东将主动接受质量督查联盟全面监督。联盟成员既包括“国字头”的行业协会,也有SGS这种国际公认的检验、鉴定、测试和认证机构,还有中国质量认证中心(CQC)这类国内权威机构,以及中国家电研究院、国家珠宝玉石监督检验中心(NGTC)这样的各个领域的专业检测机构,这些机构可谓是质检机构中最高规格“军团”。

事实上,在此次联盟成立之前,京东与这些检测机构的合作其实早已各自展开。据SGS通标电商业务团队负责人贾佳现场介绍,作为京东集团的金牌质检服务商,SGS自2016年起就与京东进行抽检合作,针对京东纺织品及鞋类、玩具及婴幼儿用品、家居及轻工产品、电子电气、农产食品、化妆品及个人护理等类目提供从最初的供应商实地认证到神秘抽检、自愿性认证等全方位合作。

除此以外,京东还联合SGS等质检机构制定了入仓审核的标准体系规范,对到库商品进行开仓验货、感官评估等,将相关品类的商品管控前移到产品入仓环节,只有质检合格的产品才能按规定进入到京东集团各个仓库。

作为中国第三方检测与认证服务开拓者和领先者的华测集团,则与京东有着更长的合作历史。据华测集团北方区总裁陈彦长介绍,多年来,华测与京东在开放平台、自营、自有品牌、线下门店和仓储五大领域均有合作,合作项目涵盖商品抽检、工厂审核、生鲜快检、标签审核、仓库巡查等多个类别,并完全覆盖了京东质控的所有食品类目。

事实上,高品质、有保障也成为消费者更愿意上京东购物的一个重要原因。今年的“11.11京东全球好物节”开启还不到一个小时,京东便呈现全品类爆发,家电、3C、快消等传统优势品类依旧领跑,时尚、家居、美妆、生鲜等高增长品类再创新高,健康、汽车等服务品类的销售也继续保持高热度。

而这次史上规模最大的11.11质检行动将进一步将今年的京东11.11打造成好物、低价、好服务的新主场。
