Citroën has revealed the spectacular new Citroën Metropolis Concept - a sleek and muscular concept car that pays homage to China's extraordinary development. Created by Citroën's international design team - based in Shanghai since 2008 - Citroën Metropolis will be on show in the French Pavilion at the Shanghai World Fair from 1st May to 31st October, 2010. Reflecting China's avant-garde status, grandeur and vitality, the sleek limousine concept immerses itself in 'Créative Technologie', balancing environmental responsibility with luxurious comfort and driving pleasure. Incorporating a plug-in hybrid drivetrain and Hydractive suspension, Citroën Metropolis produces CO2 emissions of just 70g/km - approximately one fifth that of a conventional engine with equivalent performance. Citroën Metropolis Concept's distinctive silhouette is a vision of creative and sophisticated luxury with an imposing stature (5.3m long, 2m wide & 1.4m high), reflecting the dynamism and ambition of China in the 21st Century. Powerful and engaging, Citroën Metropolis' subtle 'Pearl Silk' body colour changes under different light conditions, revealing the model's generous curves and ultra-honed detailing. Citroën Metropolis blends taut lines with smooth surfaces, evidenced particularly at the front where the sculpted, incisive wings and kite-shaped grille merge with the harmonious contours of the bonnet. The streamlined headlamps have an imperious and steely look, giving Citroën Metropolis a natural ...
1967 film The People's Republic of China (PRC), commonly known as China, is a country in East Asia. It is the most populous state in the world with over 1.3 billion people, about one in five humans. China is ruled by the Communist Party of China under a single-party system, and has jurisdiction over 22 provinces, five autonomous regions, four directly administered municipalities (Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, and Chongqing), and two highly autonomous special administrative regions (SARs) (Hong Kong and Macau). The PRC's capital is Beijing. At about 9.6 million square kilometres (3.7 million square miles), the PRC is the world's third- or fourth-largest country by total area, and the second largest by land area. Its landscape is diverse, with forest steppes and deserts (the Gobi and Taklamakan) in the dry north near Mongolia and Russia's Siberia, and subtropical forests in the wet south close to Vietnam, Laos, and Burma. The terrain in the west is rugged and at high altitude, with the Himalayas and the Tian Shan mountain ranges forming China's natural borders with India and Central Asia. In contrast, mainland China's eastern seaboard is low-lying and has a 14500-kilometre long coastline bounded on the southeast by the South China Sea and on the east by the East China Sea beyond which lies Taiwan, Korea, and Japan. The ancient Chinese civilization—one of the world's earliest—flourished in the fertile basin of the Yellow River which flows through the North China Plain. For ...
1967 film Pearl Sydenstricker Buck (June 26, 1892 - March 6, 1973) was an award-winning American writer who spent the majority of her life in China. Her novel The Good Earth was the best-selling fiction book in the US in 1931 and 1932, and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1932. In 1938, she became the first American woman to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, "for her rich and truly epic descriptions of peasant life in China and for her biographical masterpieces." With no irony, she has been described in China as a Chinese writer. Pearl was born in Hillsboro, West Virginia to Caroline Stulting (18571921) and Absalom Sydenstricker. Her parents, Southern Presbyterian missionaries, traveled to China soon after their marriage on July 8, 1880, but returned to the United States for Pearl's birth. When Pearl was three months old, the family returned to China, to be stationed first in Zhenjiang (then often known as Jingjiang or, in the Postal Romanization, Tsingkiang). Pearl grew up bilingual, tutored in English by her mother and in classical Chinese by Mr. Kung. The Boxer Uprising greatly affected Pearl and her family. Pearl's Chinese friends deserted her and her family, and there were not as many Western visitors as there once were. In 1911, Pearl left China to attend Randolph-Macon Woman's College, graduating (Phi Beta Kappa) in 1914. From 1914 to 1933, she served as a Presbyterian missionary, but her views later became highly controversial in the FundamentalistModernist ...

Sirens of Chrome includes dozens of photographs, programs, and posters culled from libraries, corporate files, and auto enthusiast portfolios, capturing decades of hot vehicles and torrid models. Discover whose body inspired the Rolls-Royce hood ornament or sit in a rumble seat with 1930s silver-screen goddess Joan Blondell. Gawk at the over-the-top opulence of the Somali leopard pelt-upholstered 1950 Cadillac Debutante, sing along with Dinah Shore while you See the USA in Your Chevrolet, or shake your head in wonder at the fur bikini-clad model atop a Soviet-built Lada. Enjoy the ride! Margery Krevsky co-founded Productions Plus in 1981, and the agency rapidly became one of the major players in selecting and training talent for auto shows. Instead of bowing to the prevailing demand for women in ball gowns and short shorts, Krevksy took a risk with Pontiac, and then other automakers, presenting the talent in sophisticated business attire. At her insistence, models became trained as product information specialists so they could entice customers with facts, not just T&A. Her knowledge of the fashion and talent industries — along with behind-the-scenes insights and personal anecdotes — make Sirens of Chrome all the more engaging. Productions Plus is based in the Detroit suburb of Bingham Farms, Michigan. Krevsky was also featured in a recent Detroit Free Press article discussing film growth in Michigan: www.freep.com

Located on China's central eastern coast at the mouth of the Yangtze River, the city is administered as a municipality of the People's Republic of China with province-level status. Originally a fishing and textiles town, Shanghai grew to importance in the 19th century due to its favorable port location and as one of the cities opened to foreign trade by the 1842 Treaty of Nanking. The city flourished as a center of commerce between east and west, and became a multinational hub of finance and business by the 1930s. However, Shanghai's prosperity was interrupted after the 1949 Communist takeover and the subsequent cessation of foreign investment. Economic reforms in 1990 resulted in intense development and financing in Shanghai, and in 2005 Shanghai became the world's largest cargo port. The city is a tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as the Bund and City God Temple, its modern and ever-expanding Pudong skyline including the Oriental Pearl Tower, and its new reputation as a cosmopolitan center of culture and design. Today, Shanghai is the largest center of commerce and finance in mainland China, and has been described as the "showpiece" of the world's fastest-growing major economy.

In Shanghai, Joe decides to do as the locals do and start the day with some T'ai Chi in the park. This ancient practice of movement and meditation gets him ready to meet his co-host, Tianran, at her home. Tianran's family is very welcoming, and teaches Joe to use chopsticks. Tianran, a former gymnast, promises to take Joe to the circus school for a class later on. First, she wants to take him on a tour of Shanghai, starting with the city's most famous landmark -- the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. At the top of the tower, the duo takes in a breathtaking view of Shanghai. For a closer look at the city, Tianran and Joe take a Huangpu River Cruise and decide to investigate even closer by going under the river in the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel. Feeling hungry, Joe and Tianran break for lunch at a popular dumpling restaurant in Yu Garden. Stepping outside the restaurant, they enter an oasis -- the YuYuan Garden. They wander through the park and stop to look at The City Temple of God, where Joe lights some incense. Exiting the Garden, Joe is drawn to a herbal medicine stall, perhaps to find an energy booster for the circus class he will soon be taking! At the circus school, a Shanghaiese acrobat gives Tianran and Joe a lesson before they head back out to Fangban Lu Market for a moon cake, in honour of the upcoming Moon Festival. The pair hops on bikes and pedal to Xiang Yang Market, so Joe can try to find a souvenir for his mother. While Joe sees many stores selling North American CDs ...
