Share World leaders' sports complex
2014-11-19 11:33
G20 leaders convened in Brisbane Australia with abundant topics in discussion. Their sports complex is also a hot topic. It's not a secret that President Xi Jinping likes football, which can be recalled back to 1980s when he watched games in Worker's Stadium several times. While making a visit to Dublin Ireland inFeb 2012, Mr. Xi pleasantly displayed his football charming. Mr. Xi didn't forget the football when he made a speech on the 50th anniversary of ...

Is Abe's strong medicine a panacea to sustainable growth?
Bank of Japan's stunning injection of stimulus results a knee-jerk through the world market but is it a panacea to sustainable growth? Japan's big problem, since the 1990's crisis, has been deflation. Falling prices dissuade people from spending and companies from expanding, leaving pools of yen stagnating in corporate bank accounts. The BoJ's stimulus helps by increasing the money supply, which will raise the question of public debt. Although the sale tax hike can allievi ...

SHIJIAZHUANG:Premier League, We've Arrived!
The last weekend we were very lucky to witness the encore stage of the CFA First Division League in Yutong Avenue of Shijiazhuang, a bleak field for football. But now we can yell, with scratchy throats: Premiere League, We've Arrived! Shijiazhuang Yongchang (Ever Bright), an indigenous team built only four years ago, capped a perfect and thriller duel versus visiting Qingdao Hainiu with complete resolve in the deafening shouting of fans. ...

Recardo Semler: A pilgrimage to the natural business
Book review: Maverick!( 特立独行 ) One day at home I happened to pick an FT paper dated 2003 in which a recommendation of a small training company got my attention. The general manager's favorite book is Maverick! written by Rrcardo Semler. I continued to dig and found the English version from jd.com. It's about the successful experience of a special management mode as well as the autobiography of Semler from Brazil. We have too m ...

A mixed blessing: Great changes in villages
We spent this national holiday in our home village, in the south of the Hebei province. The peasants were busy reaping the corns and planting the winter wheat. So many changes have been made for the last decades that we can barely remember the life before in the 1980s. I was born in 1973 and the county life in the beginning period of reform and open-up is a very familiar memory for me to dig. First browsing in your eyes, the bumpy stre ...

But thereare still some variants. FT reports ------------------------------- Oscar Pistorius, the South African Olympic and Paralymic star ...

Share Think twice about William Liu and his tragedy
2014-10-22 09:13
YesterdayI heard the news on FM95.6 about the 17-year-old first-rate Chinese-American student--William Liu--committing suicide in San Francisco due to being denied admission to Stanford University and MIT. William Liu boasted full marks in STAT exam but was still denied by the colleges he worshiped. He was then trapped in a deep depress and committed suicide with self-made toxic gas. His father also died while trying to drag him out. How do ...

Share The storm riding through the centenary
2014-10-19 01:40
Recently We are listening to the work of Pingshu master Shan Tianfang--"The storm riding through the centenary"( 百年风云 ). It is another aspect of the history of modern China which is filled with glory, humiliation, endeavor, struggle, failure and resurgence. The history itself is just like a stage with all kinds of actors posing one after another. From the Destruction of Opium at Humen and the Opium War to the Revolution of 1911. Although it's only a s ...

Share Middle East turmoil of 1919 offers important lessons for today
2014-10-14 11:02
The declining trend of US has some similarity with the one of Britain in 1920s? The dilemma Obama is now facing says something. He had provided some red lines which he broke them again and again. He had won the election with promises of double army-withdrawal,from Iraq and Afganistan. In order to keep his promise, he makes a red line of no ground troops involved in batting IS in Iraq and Syria. But effect of airsrikes is going nowhere. His gait in the end of his tenure is quite similar with th ...

China has reported a much higher than expected 15 per cent jump in exports for September. Some economists are sceptical. Speculative trade? Iphone 6? One unnormal phenomenon: China's exports to Hong Kong accelerated to 34.0% y/y in September, versus -2.1% in the prior month FT reported. ---------- As the FT has consistently reported, the nation's recorded exports are regularly distorted by illicit bets on the Chinese renminbi. China's currency regulator allows foreign cu ...

  • TALK POINT FROM THE SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE 2014-9-19 13:41

    Well, now that it is all over, as a yes voter, it was sad to see us lose, however, for politics in general it was a win, what a massive turnout, on top of that, there are moves to decentralise both English and Scottish governments now. Even though Scotland is not independent, such moves highlight the problems of the country, they bring such issues to the eyes if the people and the politicians.

    Mr Alex Salmond has been my favourite politician of all time, I think he has done a fantastic job. One of the first politicians who does what he says on the tin. I hope he can move past this in lead Scotland on to further reforms to strengthen our position within the union.I hope he does not lose moral after such a defeat and continues to work for Scotland now as a member of the union. There is no point being bitter, this is democracy and this is what the people chose so I might as well get on board even if I disagree.

    I do not hate England, nor am I a racist. I am happy with my nationality, I was unhappy with the social welfare reforms and the English right wing, however I know that in the future, We will all continue to co-operate as that's the one great thing about us, we are always able to move past things. We moved past the last Scottish independence vote in the seventies and we will move past this one. We moved past our years of bitter history and infighting.

    As for those who think the Scottish independence was about racism, about hating England...it was nothing of the sort. Most Scottish have no ill feeling towards the English, even myself, half my family is English. Such disgusting stereotypes and replies are really ignorant. Remember you represent your country wherever you go, even if you don't think you do, others will still make such judgements. As for certain people who post here...just remember what others think of your country after your racist outburst here.
