Xi'an/China General News
Military relations between China and the U.S.

China is the country most feared by Americans as a potential military threat, according to a recent survey by the Financial Times. While China and the United States both appear to at least be interested in engaging each other to secure peace in the Asia-Pacific region, they are also sizing each other up for the possibility of some kind of military confrontation in the future. Shortly after this high level military exchange was conducted in Hawaii, China announced it would suspend all such future exchanges as a way of protesting the supply of military weapons to Taiwan by the U.S.

eArts Screen Play in Xujiahui Park

For any one who (us included) who missed the eArts festival opening last weekend in Shanghai with free performances by Dead J and others, tonight is your chance at redemption. Screen Play, a mashup of film footage and computer animation, is performed to by Top Floor Circus, Elliott Sharp and fellow musicians. Taking place in Xujiahui Park, things kick off at 7:30pm and the best part....it is all free.

Around Shanghai: Dongtan, Lewis Hamilton, Xie Jin, Yang Jia

aroundsh1022.jpg

  • Shanghai's Dongtan project on Chongming island was slated to become a sustainable eco-city home to 500,000 people by 2010 but a recent visit by The Sunday Telegraph has revealed that the groundbreaking plans are "nothing but a pipe dream". Local farmers on fields within the projected building site remain blissfully unaware that the project would ever take place.
  • Lewis Hamilton's dazzling win in Shanghai on Sunday may help him secure the championship title, if he stays out of trouble, that is.
  • 84 year old film director Xie Jin died in his hotel room in Shangyu, Zhejiang province, possibly of a heart attack. His funeral will be held Oct 26 in Shanghai. Memorials and candlelight vigils have been held across China and the Shanghai Film Group Corporation is preparing a retrospective of his films.
  • The death sentence handed to Yang Jia, the Beijing man who killed six Shanghai cops in Zhabei district has been upheld by the municipal high court. His request for a second psychiatric assessment was thrown out the window.

Searching for: KTV manager. Salary: Ka-ching!

Normally, job postings on Las Vegas' Craigslist for nightclub managers would never catch our attention. Make that nightclub a KTV disco nightclub and put it in Shanghai, and we start to get curious. Make the annual salary for said position between $100k and $400k USD, and we're printing out résumés:

cragislistktv.jpg

Either this is for some high-end, dodgy gentlemen's club (which, cough, we've never had the chance to explore), or Partyworld/Cash Box is considering hiring strippers to hold your microphones while you sing. Absent that, we have a hard time believing the listed compensation. And of course, everything on Craigslist is true.
