comments: I have just logged onto your web site, and have discovered links that are misdirected, or links that are dead. Not a good advertisement for your paper. But then neither are the grammatical errors throughout the text of most articles! Disappointing.

comments: I am a chinese student studying at nanyang technological university, in Singapore. I have met a problem when I was speaking to a native english speaker from new zealand. Once he found out I don't pronouce the " i " in the word swift in the right way. When we discuss further on the problem, we found out that my english pronoucing system which I learned from my english teachers ever since my primary school in china is totally wrong, but we can address the problem, since we use the different ways to decode the pronunciation of a word, he can pronouce it naturally without phoneticism that I must use to pronouce. The problem is still pending, while the problem provoke me to contemplate if the english-teacher system in chian is efficient enough. I would like to listen to some editors's opinion about any aspects of the problem.

comments: Washington Post,Nov. 19,2005: Asian central banks hold huge amounts of US Treasury Notes and other securities by mortgage finance company such as Fannie Mae to benefit American consumers with lower interest
rates. Bank of China holds 769 billions of foreign reserves As US trade gap grows,so do Asian Banks's foreign reserves. Food for thoughts for Sino-US or US-China relations in the days to come in economics.Xie Shihao,a native of Shanghai since 1926.

comments: Western media do not inform in a proper way about the chinese achievements in the Space Program; in a paralel sense, there is not a proper knowledge of chinese history, specially because there is not a good History of China in the web. I discovered Tibet is a historic part of China in an ancient Boulger's History of Imperial China.
Information is very relevant, as important is get freely the sources. Most of pages with poetry and narrative text in hanzi and translations in western languages are fron the States or fron Taiwan.
Thank you.

comments: President Hu is visiting London with all the honors as an nternational leader,a guest of Queen Elizabeth II. Chinese in Hong Kong would remember 1997 for HK's return to China with ethnic pride. Chinese folks in Taiwan would share the pride of China's achievement as Chinese in ethnicity. Nobody would impugn such rationale. Such is the gut feeling of a native from Shanghai since 1926.

comments: Foreign Affairs magazine,Nov./Dec.2005 issue,a book review by Joseph Stiglitz(Columbia U.Prof.,former Chair,CEA and Chief Economist,World Bank) on "The Morality of Economic Growth" by Ben Friedman of Harvard. To wit: China has had the most rapid and sustained growth of any country over the past quarter century. China has done more to reduce poverty than most countries. The median real household income in falling in the USA even as poverty has grown. In education,public investment is essential for the grassroots
folks. Cf."Keys for Economic Understanding" www.half.com if interested. The market economy does not guarantee growth,social justice even economic efficiency. Achieving those ends would require that government play an
important role.Food for thought for readers of Shanghai Star from a native of Shanghai,xie shihao,thanks from a hero of poetry in name only. Oct.30,2005

comments: Fail to be Western In the past decade, various kinds of life-styles invade China, drinking at cafe instead of meeting at park, eating at restaurant instead of cooking at home, and serving tons of kinds of wine instead of only 'Baijiu'.
Some of the life-styles are orginally western, but have people been really western ? Drinking coffee has been a very common social action in China nowadays, many friends seem to order a cup of cappuccino quickly and professionally, but some of them definitely do not know that cappuccino consists of espresso, milk and milk foam, and of course they also do not know that Mocha is made from espresso, milk and choclate. In the other, some people just recognise certain drinks from familiar and popular names such as Mocha, Latte, Cappuccino and etc. They probably got the image from films or TV series.
I go to eat pizza with my local friends sometimes. I like the traditonal Italian pizza which is very thin is called "Tissue Pizza" at some restaurants. But every time I order my favorite pizza, my friends always ask me 'have you ever eaten pizza before?' or 'Why do not you eat authentic pizza?' All right, authentic pizza, but which kind of pizza is authentic? My dear friends call 'fast food pizza'
authentic, but basically they do not know that pizza is a traditional Italian cusine and has more than four hundred kinds of fillings.
Gin mix in with tonic is called 'Gin Tonic' which is a popular cocktail, but some would-be western-minded people call the concoction of Whisky and greentea 'rubbish'. Is it rubbish or just some ones pretend to be western?
A number of 'bar animals' drink whisky, vodka, gin and etc just because they are imported and 'importation' has been a mark of fashion for decades in China. But shall we just ask them how many kinds of whisky have they ever tried, what is the difference between of Scottish 'whisky' and American 'Whiskey', and What does 'Long Island Tea' consist of ? I totally think that not all of them can give us good answers, and I am confident to say that lots of winebibbers cannot name the top-ranking manufacturers of whisky in the UK.
Millions of people enjoy new life-stlyes nowadays but many of them have no idea and knowledge about the latest things they enjoy. A fashionable life-stlye cannot be reflected by just drinking whisky, and a 'fast food pizza' store is not a gorgeous restaurant. Should those would-be westerners ask themselves these quesions before they enjoy a new life-style:
1,What is the contrast of Italian pizza and 'fast food pizza'?
2,How to differentiate Mocha and Hot choclate ?
3, If you drink 'Gin Tonic', why do you call the concoction of whisky and greentea 'rubbish'?

comments: China's astronauts with meaningful names: Fei Junlong: Junlong would mean a handsome(smart) dragon and dragon represents China's progeny so his mission for China is a smart move as an offspring of the dragon. Nie Naisheng: haisheng would mean victory at sea. Here the sea would mean the world to be cited from "Within four seas,all are brothers." i.e. the mission from China is for humankind on earth in the world. How fitting and proper for their names to dovetail the space mission of science for all humanity,indeed! Xie

Judging from ehe works at the Terrace Theater,personal vision has a firm hold on modern China.

On your own you have moved your economy forward and have changed the balance of trade position, in overall terms, in your favour. This is obviously why all the major trade players are worried and threatened by your exploits. I am proud of China.

comments: Foreign Affairs magazine,Oct.2005 issue published an article by the Dean of Public Policy School in Singapore "Understanding China" More engagement is in order because the course of 21st century will be determined by the relationship between the world's greatest power(USA) and the world's greatest emerging power(China). My comment: America is in Asia and China is the largest nation in Asia. Two great nations must work together for the best interests of the peoples in Asia in the days to come in the positive ways.

comments: Washington Post,October 2, 2005 page F3: Panda Bonds: In finance,a popular name for debt instruments issued by international lending institutions in local Chinese currency. Bonds that the Asian Develpment Bank and an arm of the World Bank intend to issue under a pilot program authorized by the Chinese
government.Next generation cousin of samurai bonds issued decades ago in Japan. A tool for developing a modern bonds market in China as an alternative source of financing from Chinese banks,which provided 99% of corporate financing. Bonds that carry no credit risk and,like Treasury bonds in the United States,will set a benchmark for gauging the risk of other corporate and municipal borrowers. Another step by China away from strict currency controls to full convertibility of the yuan. Eventually,a vehicle for foreigners to invest in
China while betting on the continued appreciation of its currency.

comments: IMF Managing Director Rodrigo de Rato says "we don't see evidence" that China is violating fund rules. Published by the Washington Post,September 28, 2005 page D6: An unsual public rift between the IMF and the Bush administration deepened as the IMF's top official made it clear that he will not cooperate with any U.S. plan to lavel China as a currency manipulator. My comment: The trade deficit is attributable to American consumers's right to buy Chinese products involving no manipulation whatsoever. American consumers have such freedom in USA when consumers wish to pay less for good quality as a matter of practicality in daily lives.
Nobody would impugn such common sense,indeed.

Mutual good cheers would be contagious for two great nations on both sides of the Pacific.

comments: Sir:

I was interested to read about a gung-ho English language teacher and
a group of 25 voluntary students attempting to break the world record for the longest lesson ever taught over one period of time. In this case, the teacher was aiming to teach for 72 consecutive hours with only a few short rests in between. It was good to see that not only did the sturdy foreign teacher accomplish this impressive feat, but that ALL his 24 students managed this marathon too. I wish to congratulate everyone who took part in this impressive spectacle.
And spectacle it was. It certainly wasn’t anything to do with education. As a professional teacher, I find it exhausting enough to teach for 6 hours continuously, let alone 72. However, regardless of the amazing stamina of the teacher and students in question, this was an event sponsored by a well-known
international franchise company in tandem with a local partner to publicize the grand opening of a new English Language school into the frenetic feeding ground of Shanghai’s ESL market. If this wasn’t classy enough, the schools also offered two weeks’ worth of free lessons in London to any volunteer student crazy enough and determined enough to complete this “ordeal by language
acquisition”. Clearly, the schools in question under-estimated the Chinese students’ spirit of competition, obdurateness and reserves of energy for, as I
mentioned above, all 24 students stayed “the course”. So, the sponsors have had to back down on their promise and will draw lots to decide the lucky
winner, which must be a bit of a disappointment to some of those who
sang and role-played for what must have seemed an eternity.
But, let me revise some of my terminology. Did I say this was a
“lesson”? I’m sorry, I meant it was a circus. Again, I can’t emphasize how
impressed I am with anyone who can motivate and keep students positive for 72 hours, but to what ends? Was this done to increase understanding between
different cultures? To propagate an exciting and effective new teaching
methodology? To inspire students to learn English effectively and proactively? Not as far as I can tell. As far as I can tell, this was an overblown, self-aggrandizing publicity stunt which diminished the professional credibility of private ESL education as a whole. Are we to celebrate the fact that new schools
now have to stoop to this kind of showmanship in order to get a slice of the pie?
But, I am not one of your educational idealists. I know that all schools have to pay their bills and everybody needs money. But, the primary focus of these
schools should not be about “bums on seats” and making a fast buck at
the expense of educational standards and decorum. Here’s some news for
those franchise schools who are laboring under this misapprehension-
Education isn’t a high volume sales’ business. We don't sell soft drinks. What a
pity that the rest of us suffer from the mind-set of those who truly believe we
should, by any means, no matter how demeaning or foolish, get in the “Johns”
and deliver to them the teaching equivalent of snake oil. If English
Language schools pretend to be a window into the cultural landscapes of the
English-speaking world, then the one above would be a grimy, impoverished vista with a bunch of troubadours somersaulting and unicycling for a few
pennies.

The greasy road is hard to clean and becomes very dirty.
Our company bus takes us from the offce to home.Some of my colleagues always throw it out to the window insteading of taking their junk(such as plastic and paper) with themselves on the road.

comments: Having lived in China for three years,I have had little contact with Shanghai, even though it is only one hour by plane, or an overnight train ride away.I live in the capital city of Jiangxi province, Nanchang. Nanchang is a city where not too many expatriates reside, even though we could do with a few more. I teach at University and it is always looking for good qualified teachers, there are plenty of ooportunites to make upwards of 20000rmb a month here. Ha! ha! you shanghaiese say thats not a big deal in Shanghai, but included in this deal is free accommodation.
Nanchang is a city which is developing rapidly,chaotic traffic, but that is being bought under control as the city seeks"civilised city status"The people here are freindly, and you can make good contacts.I have two doctors and one dentist who look after me like a lost grandchild, right down to escorting me to a taxi to
make sure I get safely back home, Does this happen to expats in Shanghai ?I had a slightly high blood pressure,so the doctor who completed my eye operation immediately sent me off to a very experienced cadiologist just to have my blood pressure checked,this doctor has studied overseas and is involved in research, she not only checked my blood pressure, but prescribed the medication and helped me purchase it, band sent me home in a taxi.About a month ago an expat teacher had a consistent cough, so I rang my
cardioligist friend, no problem she said bring him in !!He was pretty apprehensive about chinese hospitals, but two hours later and an xray and medication,! a week later completely cured."amazing" he said.
So this is just to encourage expats considering China as possibilty to come and teach here.It can ba a very emotional moment when a class finishes for the semester and a 14 years old boy, taller than me, puts his head on my shoulder, weeping, and says"David I love you"

comments: I live in London and go to Bei Hai,Guangxi Province regularly to visit my wife there (her application to settle in the UK is being applied for). It is quite a nice city that is fast expanding, relatively easy to get around (unlike Guangzhou) and the residents are friendly and likeable. However, there
are two issues which needs to be addressed: 1)the lack of reliable and convenient local air routes feeding the major cities like Guangzhou
2)credit/debit cards are not accepted there - only cash!
I heard that Peking is injecting money into Bei Hai to develop the city but its progress is being hindered by corrupt officials leaving quite a few projects unfinished.
I sincerely hope that the city will benefit from this financial assistance and reach 'international status' in the near future. This will undoubtedly enhance more foreign tourists to her shores which will be good for the city.

comments: a wonderful place in memory shanghai is sucha a city that when you left it you will miss it and reflect it in mind again and again. at least for me, it is.
the first impression i got of shanghai was not very good for most roads were narrower than my hometown, and i arrived at night with a little view of it through the dark road the driver took us and the first several weeks were ruined by rushes in settlement. only when my heart settled down in the new city, did i started to look at it and slowly to enjoy it through every taste of the life in shanghai. the humid weather makes most people annoyed when you talked to new comers, but it did gave us a soft skin so, girls like it infact. it wasn't the benefit to the skin makes me like the weather, but what the weather makes the city like made me impressed. things are much softer than the northern part of China combined with modern style though sometimes you can hear two women yelled to each other on the street. some people from other part of china feel shanghainees are mean. for me, on the contrary, i feel they are more realistic in life though i will not act the same. and at the same time, people live in shanghai, not only for the old residents, but for eveyone who is living her, are becoming more cicilized. one of our college mate had told me the reason he chose to stay in shanghai is that, shanghai perhaps is the only city in china which is has a civil society culture in China, even much ahead of beijing in it. and i agreed. maybe just for that valuable spirit of civil soceity, i love this city depite pitfalls it has. a city is built on its "city-spirit", with that, it can rebuilt its self after making mistakes and thrive to the world. i believe the achievement shanghai is making now is not only from the government advantaged police, but also, maybe more from the city spirit: independent lifetyle, rational business minded, cooperative, endurance, ambition. so i will also wish it have a good future.

comments: China's economy and burgeoning consumerism have prompted a range of international banks to invest in China under the terms of WTO(World Trade Organization. I envision the active roles of banks for the economic growth of CHINA in the 21st century.
