From Michael Webster:
Chinese first aid rule no. 1: Don't touch anything!

We were late for our gig at the hot springs resort. Our breadbox car swerved angrily around the mountain corners, the horn blaring a warning to any invisible drivers who might have been blinded by our high beams. Finally, we were within a kilometer of our mountain resort destination and rounding one of the last turns when a shirtless truck driver leaped in front of our vehicle, hailing us to stop. It was lucky that we did and none too soon. Our front tires were less than a meter away from the two bodies already in the road.Full Story >>We were late for our gig at the hot springs resort.

Stronger Chinese ties with Africa reduce reliance on EU 2010-10-08 15:41:18
The new China Africa Research Centre has been created in order to foster economic ties between the two continents. The creation of this think tank is a clear sign that China hopes to reshape the political economy of the world while also highlighting to a lesser extent China's pursuit of Joseph Nye's much debated "soft Power."

American Dream now a Chinese reality 2010-08-10 09:11:39
Political commentators, especially within Asia, have been keen to stress the evolving relationship which has become apparent between East and West as the developed world has slumped into recession. Talks between the United States and China were heralded as an attempt by President Barack Obama to pave the way for a more constructive relationship between two powers with big ideological differences.

Girl-eat-dog kind of world 2010-08-04 08:27:15
My one vow before coming to China was that I was going to find a way to consume dog before I left. Naturally, when the opportunity presented itself I leaped at it with open arms (or rather with an open mouth). My hosts for this glorious excursion were a local pastor and his wife as well as a pastor visiting from Taiwan.

China needs to raise interest rates
The latest data released by the Chinese State Statistical Bureau in 2010 indicates the consumer price index in China increased by 2.8% and the producer price index by 6.8% year-on-year to April this year. The growing inflationary pressure again highlights the need for China to raise interest rates.The latest data released by the Chinese State Statistical Bureau in 2010 indicates the consumer price index in China increased by 2.8% and the producer price index by 6.8% year-on-year to April this year.

Labor unrest in China reflects changing demographics, more awareness of rights
China has been hit with a recent wave of labor unrest, including strikes and partial shutdowns of factories, underscoring what experts call one of the most dramatic effects of three decades of startling growth: A seemingly endless supply of cheap labor is drying up, and workers are no longer willing to endure sweatshop-like conditions.

Is Chittagong one of China's 'string of pearls'?
From the vast, tropical quayside of Chittagong port, you can see enormous metal tankers bearing down on simple wooden fishing boats. This squalid city has long been Bangladesh's largest port - but it is about to change forever.
