And so, four tour guides, with vehicles in tow, arrived at our hotel," Xian related, laughing, at a press con for his movie, "Hanggang Kailan" (Feb. 6). "We didn't have a choice but pay them," added Xian, who's more chill when it comes to ...Keep on reading: Xian and Kim’s China trip blooper.....»»

In Beijing, newsstands face battle amid changing times

BEIJING---Zhang Fan, 33, stopped by a newsstand one recent Sunday morning near his home in Beijing to buy a magazine, only to find the stand had been shut down.   Zhang, a designer living on the Guangqumenwai street in Chaoyang district, used to visit a stand just 500 meters from his residential community to buy newspapers and magazines.   But since he started to read news and other material on his phone, he can count on one hand the number of times he has visited the stand in the past year.

Happy 33rd birthday, PDI!

Our paper celebrates a milestone today. Thirty-three years. Imagine that! No one, probably not even its founders, thought it would survive so long.   It was birthed in tumultuous, severely critical times. Some people feared it was too controversial, too forward, and dangerously gutsy. No one wants realities thrown in one's face. Too contentious, some argued. Many applauded while others gnashed their teeth.   But as a whole, everyone held his breath.   But here we are (permission to use freely the "editorial we"), over three decades later, alive and well, and although we may repeatedly struggle against the changing tides, we manage to stay on even keel, ke...Keep on reading: Happy 33rd birthday, PDI!.....»»

Dictionary.com chooses ‘misinformation’ as word of the year

NEW YORK --- Misinformation, as opposed to disinformation, was chosen Monday as Dictionary.com's word of the year on the tattered coattails of "toxic," picked earlier this month for the same honor by Oxford Dictionaries in these tumultuous times.

It's the idea of intent, whether to inadvertently mislead or to do it on purpose, that the Oakland, California-based company wanted to highlight. The company ...Keep on reading: Dictionary.com chooses ‘misinformation’ as word of the year.....»»
