                                           China issues `Green Card' to foreigners

Foreigners may now apply for official permanent residence in China under a system similar to the US "Green Card" scheme.

The Ministry of Public Security said "high-level foreigners or foreigners who make large direct investment" may apply for permanent residence status and if successful, live in the country indefinitely.…

A bird's eye view of the future

On the Atlantic Cities website, there’s a series of GIFs which are part of a collaboration between Google, NASA, Time, and others. The GIFs are short animated picture files, taken from satellite data covering major earth cities and the surrounding land area, over a period of time between 1984 and 2012. In those 28 years you can see clear examples of what we call “urban sprawl”, the seemingly unregulated and unrestrained growth of population centers as they expand outward, consuming ever more…

On working for a living

Sometimes I write articles for some papers in China. Here's one of them:

"I grew up in a large household, but a small house. Too many people and not enough room for all of us. I never owned most of my own clothes, but had to borrow or steal them from my older brothers. As soon as I was old enough myself, about 14 or so, I went out into the neighborhood and tried to make my own money, to buy the things I desperately needed but my parents couldn’t afford.

In the summers I pushed…
