"Qingdao has made itself a posh summer resort city for China's emerging bourgeoisie, and claims some of the republic's highest living standards. It's nestled on a fertile and hilly crook of land between the Yangtzee and Yellow River deltas and has regular auto ferry service to nearby Japan and Korea. Also spelled Tsingtao, the modern but soulful metropolis has a complex history that involves a founding by the Dongyi peoples over 6,000 years ago. Next came the mighty Zhou Dynasty (China's longest-running), followed by German and Japanese colonial occupations in the late 19th-century. In 2008, the city experienced a pre-Olympic boom (the sailing regatta was held here) and a subsequent post-Olympic bust, though blocky high-rise construction and commercial developments on the outskirts of town are erecting at a pace that make Westerners nervous. The metro population is already at eight-and-a-half million and growing." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/fathom/chinas-bavarian-beach-tow_b_1231003.html

‎"Asian languages should be compulsory for every school student because many will go on to work in Asia's fast-growing economies, says the accounting body CPA Australia. "Only 300 students who do not have a Chinese background are studying Chinese in Year 12 and only 18 per cent of all school students study an Asian language," said CPA chief executive Alex Malley."

‎"Could the Australian ''tyranny of distance'' have become the ''fortuity of proximity''? The global centre of gravity is moving ever closer - not just for trade and investment, which get the headlines, but increasingly for arts and design, technology and culture."

"It is more than two years to the next local government elections - but one of Adelaide's most familiar faces has declared he will run for Lord Mayor. High-profile businessman Francis Wong, who was on the previous City Council, has confirmed he will again put his hand up for the top job after unsuccessfully vying for the position in 2010. Mr Wong said he would work to boost economic activity in the city if elected."http://city-messenger.whereilive.com.au/news/story/wongs-mayoral-ambitions-resurface/
