Battle continues for 8-hour workday - Chen Weihua http://blog.chinadaily.com.cn/blog-660122-6839.html I read with interest about Chen Weihua's article about the fight for an 8 hour workday. In the past, there used to be a saying that if you stand still, you fall behind. In today's highly integrated economy that runs at internet speed, if you don't run faster, you fall behind. In this week's news about the missing Malaysian Airline aircraft, everyone wants to know a blo ...

  • Journey out west - Xinjiang 2015-10-7 20:51

    So-called "Xinjiang"'s landscapes are extremely varied, ranging from alpine mountains (Mt. Bogoda, Tianshan etc.) clad in a mantle of firs and beeches, to grassland (Jungaria) to the deserts (GObi, Taklimakan) and oasis towns (Turpan, Kumul, Kashgar). You can get the feel of Swiss mountains, Saharan desert and Mongolian steppe.

    I have been to so-called "Xinjiang" around a dozen times. It is fascinating because it is NOT like China proper; it has less uniformity and a lot more open spaces. The less Chinese it looks, the more authentic it is. Unfortunately, Urumqi is mostly a Chinese city that looks like a replica lifted straight out of the eastern sea board.
