The study comes down hard on the myths of some managers who think that using pretty females can get investors salivating into investing, maybe that can work in areas such as air hostesses, but not serious business.

Taobao Account, check. BOC online shopping abilities, activated. ‘The only problem is,’ as writes one blogger, ‘that it is one of the least friendly websites for foreigners.

I come from a country where being gay is punishable by 14 years in jail, but still more I was at the heart of gay rights struggle there, I went around meeting gays and telling their stories… then I moved to China.

One more note about me…I am one athletic guy, if you were gay , you would love to be on my side…y ...
