    Many and many people said they hope our education focus on interest and innovation like western country. Oppositely western country start learning peaceful part of oriental culture. But which culture is more outstanding? In my option,  we cannot say which culture is more outstanding. Western culture pay more attention to problems they currenly faced. Oriental culture hope we have a big picutre like became a great scientist, general etc when we were children. So for success,  western culture is better to comply with the development of current society.

    Oriental culture and Western culture are making efforts to increase the efficiency of their bilateral strategic cooperative relationship. Cultural officials from both sides will enhance their cooperation and establish a mechanism for the further development of strategic bilateral ties.

    Hahahahaha ... I was tempted to say a mix, and then, sadly, yesterday I discovered that there is no need to mix ...

    On the CA flight from BJ to GZ, we were seated in the "foreigner zone" ... on the right asile, we had two European-speakers (sorry, cannot be too sure what language, but it is definitely not Eng nor French), playing with a Nokia most of the way, the music was quite loud, and half the time the guy was singing  along, quite badly actually ...

    On the left, we had two little blond kids playing with their iPad, until landing, i.e. including the time AFTER the announcement to stop using electronics equipment when landing ...

    Stupid question ... is it safe to actually switch on electronics during take-off and/or landing? furthermore, is it safe to turn on the mobile, flight mode or otherwise, during the flight?
