Cultural Imperialism; Fried Chicken Takes Over China
Ellen’s at Night, Shepherd’s Delight?
Importing la Vie Française to Nanjing
The Love Story of a Chinese Century: Sanmao and Hexi
Cultural Imperialism; Fried Chicken Takes Over China Fried chicken and beer is now all the rage in China; and it’s all because of the Koreans. Admittedly, both the food and the beverage have been around for a while. However, pairing the two during meetings with friends is now the in-thing to do after a South Korean TV drama has created an unprecedented craze about the combo that is now entering into Chinese mainstream culture.

Ellen’s at Night, Shepherd’s Delight? Ellen’s at night is one of those infamous places many tend to steer clear of, but what about Ellen’s by day? It felt strange disembarking walking into a place that looked more like a ‘pirates cove’ than a bar/restaurant; in tune with its reputation for the rough and rowdy after 10 pm. Read the Full Story
Importing la Vie Française to Nanjing Nine years ago Hu Ya opened up the first French restaurant in Nanjing; now the owner of one of Nanjing’s most longstanding establishments is venturing into the bar scene. On the checklist of foreign cuisine in Nanjing Les 5 Sens is undoubtedly a top contender. Opened in 2005 by two Chinese ladies and a French chef it has been a steady success. Read the Full Story
The Love Story of a Chinese Century: Sanmao and Hexi Hardly a Nanjinger does not know the tragic love story of Sanmao and Hexi. The Chinese writer, who partly grew up in Nanjing, would have been 71 this month. Local students are currently bringing her story to the stage.  Read the Full Story

Hello Nanjing - The premier expat social network for pleasant living in Nanjing Jiangsu, China

Climate change conference amid scandal tomorrow

On Monday Nov. 30, Chinese and European leaders will meet in Nanjing. Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, the President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso and Swedish PM Fredrik Reinfeldt will meet for a climate change exhibition at the same time that a falsification scandal rocks the west.

The exhibition

The exhibition takes place on Monday Nov. 30 at 1:30pm at the Nanjing Library (No. 189, Zhongshan East Road). It is part of a campaign to help support the raising of awareness about climate change in China.

The exhibition explains the facts of climate change, the challenges we all face in tackling it, and the approaches that the European Union and China are taking together to meet this challenge.

Sez President Barroso: "Climate change is arguably the gravest long-term threat facing the world today. The scientific evidence is compelling that global warming is accelerating and will reach dangerous - perhaps devastating - levels during the course of this century if we carry on with business as usual. This challenge demands nothing less than an urgent and determined global response."

The scandal

Essentially, on Nov. 20, a hacker revealed confidential e-mails exposing attempts by global warming apostles to manipulate embarrassing info that countered their warming claims.

From the TimesOnline:
Inevitably, the affair became nicknamed Climategate. For the scientists, campaigners and politicians trying to rouse the world to action on climate change the revelations could hardly have come at a worse time. Next month global leaders will assemble in Copenhagen to seek limits on carbon emissions. The last thing they need is renewed doubts about the validity of the science.
Repeated President Barroso: "Climate change is arguably the gravest long-term threat facing the world today. The scientific evidence is compelling that global warming is accelerating and will reach dangerous - perhaps devastating - levels during the course of this century if we carry on with business as usual. This challenge demands nothing less than an urgent and determined global response."

  • From the Telegraph UK:

    [quote]Our hopelessly compromised scientific establishment cannot be allowed to get away with the Climategate whitewash...

    What we are looking at here is the small group of scientists who have for years been more influential in driving the worldwide alarm over global warming than any others, not least through the role they play at the heart of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)...

    But the question which inevitably arises from this systematic refusal to release their data is
