@jgwilson - I actually still think there are a lot of 机会 to start new businesses, especially here in China. Sure, a lot of start-ups don't succeed, but that is sometimes more down to how they execute rather than whether or not they have found a good niche or not.

Especially now that the internet has levelled the playing field for small businesses to compete with big companies, there are still a mountain of opportunities..Here in Shanghai, everyone has their own entrepreneurial idea, because there are still so many services etc that have yet to be provided or properly set-up. And I am talking about Shanghai, which is the most developed of mainland cities..metropolises like Chongqing and Chengdu have still yet to be uncovered.....

To be honest, am not really that into poetry, but found this really interesting, especially they way you went through the poem, breaking it down by translating and explaining the context.

The length of the poem was just right for taking it all in!

Great work, Pete!

Tomorrow is the last day of the Expat Show in Shanghai. If you are around, drop by to the ChinesePod booth (no.34 on the ground floor) - we have some small gifts and special deals and you can talk to some of the staff to answer any questions you may have.

Admission is free to the event at Yanan Xi Lu, no. 1000.

There have been a lot of suggestions from users by email and through the website and we are looking at each and every one of them.
I agree, however, that we should set up a method to address these suggestions. One possibility would be to start a new thread "Suggestions" to answer all questions asked and to encourage more ideas from our valued users. An alternative would be to create a group so that the conversation doesn't get lost over time and so that we can create new sub-threads within the group to cover certain aspects such as "Suggestions for video", "Suggestions for flashcards" etc..
Let me know where you would like to see suggestions responded to.

Really? Wow, that is one of the most interesting ways in which I have heard how people listen to ChinesePod. I just looked at their website and looks like something I should use to force me to swim more!
