Share Want a new life? Get into a black hole
2016-4-29 12:29
As humanityhastens on space travel and future mass transportation of humans within our solar system, new emerging information is that it could be even possible to travel outside our solar system and perhaps beyond through the revered black holes. Yes, so for those of us who dream of living in an alternate world, in a different timeline and dimension, the opportunity is there but not without risking that very life we hold dear. Easier said than done, ac ...

Share My vision for a smog-free China
2016-3-7 11:09
I’ve lived in China for quite a considerable time including my graduate school years, travelled and worked in a few cities and still choose my destination taking into consideration the density of smog or PM2.5 particulate matter in the region. Being a naturalist, I live a life which I try as much as possible to avoid manmade environmental hazards especially smoke or smog-filled environments. But that’s sort of a dream living in a country where heavy smog ...

Share My Experience as a student in China
2015-10-30 16:11
The year was 2009; I was bound for Wuhan, the capital city of Hubei Province in Central China , to study as a post-graduate student in Mass Communication having qualified as a beneficiary of Chinese government scholarship. A rare opportunity at that time and even today, I vowed to make the best out of the offer, searched thoroughly on the internet about my host-city and university- Central China Normal University, one of the best language and teaching universities in China. ...

Share We’ll miss you Jenny
2015-10-15 10:16
CCTV News anchor Jenny Gu yesterday signed out for the last time leaving an indelible mark on many of the station’s viewers. If you missed out on her out-tro, sorry then. Personally, I had a crush on her eloquence and demeanor before the camera. I’ve enjoyed listening to her for the past five years and ...

Share CSC needs a paradigm shift: The woes of African students in China
2015-9-29 11:37
China’s trade and assistance to Africa within the past two decades surpasses that of Europe and America combined and that is not debatable- China has done far more for the continent economically than all of Africa’s Western trading partners combined. Some critics argue that despite China’s tremendous assistance to countries in Africa, the scale is still not balance; they opine that economies of scale haven’t been achieved in the highly promoted partn ...

Share Mixed or same-sex high schools in China?
2015-8-28 12:58
I’ve seen quite a few posts on the system of education here in China and abroad following the now infamous Bohunt experiment in the UK. It is out of curiosity that I ask this question. I haven’t yet come across any single or same-sex high school in China, but I’m certain there might be few- considering the high number of private schools springing up and being modeled after Western style education. My question is directed specifically at Chinese contrib ...

Share Music: The Soul of Africa
2015-7-24 18:37
Many have wondered what is it that makes Africans proud to be Africans. What exactly is it that drives Africans in this turbulent chaotic world. Africans are in tune with sound, words and power. The truth is, naturally, Africans are born with rhythm. Oh yes, it comes natural with less effort. Research by scholars on pre-historic records proves that music and dance has been embedded in African culture since human kind and it is the same today. Music and dance in the 21st Century Af ...

Share Native English Speakers Only
2015-7-24 18:09
Oh yeah, you guessed right. From the title you know where this article is heading towards. But hey, don’t judge yet, get to the bottom and allow me to present my case. To my friends and fellow bloggers, compatriots, comrades, birds of the same feathers, native English speakers, allow me to once in a while bash the system overlooked by the “main system”. There are some topics or issues that just won’t go away unless they are dealt with appropriately, and this is one of them. ...

Share What are your China moments?
2015-7-10 13:56
A friend once told me “to experience the real China; you must visit rural China, meet and mingle with the rural folks, dine and enjoy the fresh vegetables, the clean air and environment devoid of all the toxic elements polluting China’s bustling urban cities”. But mind you he said, “it is in the countryside that you will experience most of your China moments. “This is partly due to the naivety of the rural folks” he lamented. If you’re already in ...

Share White woman claims she's black
2015-6-15 13:51
Rachel A. Dolezal, right, president of the N.A.A.C.P. in Spokane, Wash., at a rally in March responding to a racist and threatening package she received. Credit Dan Pelle/The Spokesman-Review, via Associated Press Make no mistake; the woman on the right is a white woman claiming to be black. My opinion? I admire her and so long as she is comfortable with all the prejudice and stereotypes that comes with being black in America I would vouch for her and ...
