You're clearly too dumb to know what a message board is. If you just want to spam crap without talking to anyone then use a blog. That way you can tell exactly how unpopular you are by the fact nobody visits your website.
Miro isn't dumb, just fanatical to the point of insanity. Be careful that you don't end up the same.

I assume you're pretty old so I'll use older artists:
I'll see your Teresta Teng and raise you a Janis Joplin. She could give an off key gravelly texture to her voice like Johnny Cash but was also so technically excellent that she could self harmonise.
I.e If you plugged her voice into a oscilloscope she could sing two harmonic notes at the same time.
I don't think Luciano Pavarotti could do that and apparently he was quite the singer.
Pass on Janis Joplin but Eva Cassidy came close to Teressa Teng. Like I said, it's all subjective. But the prospect of a female Johnny Cash .... what could one add to that fantasy!

But this is what has been said about Teresa Teng, something of a glowing tribute: "It was the sweetness in her voice that brought perfection to folk songs and ballards, she added traditional folk song stylings into Western-style compositions. She could display just the right demeanor for any performance, having great microphone technique, coupled with her breathing was well-control, her pronunciation was very clear, her voice was complimented as being "like weeping and like pleading, but with strength, capable of drawing in and hynotizing listeners, which is something few others can accomplish.

Your 'middle class'?
How much do you need to earn to qualify as 'middle class' in China?
US$ 10,000. Remember the lower cost of living in China?

Part 1 (2009). Krugman blames US economic troubles on China's trade surplus and tells China to revalue renminbi. China refuses and tells Krugman he does not know what he's talking about.

Part 2 (2011). China's trade surplus narrows to 2% of GDP. Krugman quietly drops the subject and starts asking whether China will break.

No longer factory of the world, China is now its banker
By Lily Kuo — January 16, 2013


China may be losing its position as the world’s factory. Foreign direct investment (FDI) into China in 2012 fell year-over-year for the first time in three years. At the same time, outbound Chinese investment grew sharply, government data released today shows. The figures signal that investors are less keen on China’s manufacturing sector but, perhaps more importantly, that Chinese investors are aggressively taking their money abroad.

Chinese outward foreign direct investment increased 28.6% in 2012, to $77.2 billion, as Chinese investors put money into over 4,400 companies in 141 countries and regions. By contrast, investment into China fell 3.7%, to $111.7 billion, for the full year. The month of December marked the 13th decline of FDI inflows in 14 months and investment into China’s services sector outpaced manufacturing for the second year.

FDI inflows into China steadily declined while outbound Chinese FDI jumped in 2012.ChinaScope Financial
A slow global economy has meant that Chinese investors are snatching up undervalued assets, helping China finally make good on the “going out” policy it initiated in 1999. Chinese FDI in the US, for example, hit a new record last year through big acquisitions and investment in new projects. Deals made by Chinese companies in the US in 2012 were worth $6.5 billion, a 17% rise from the previous the record of $5.5 billion in 2010, according to research firm Rhodium Group in a note released today.(One of those deals was Dalian Wanda’s purchase of AMC Entertainment, making the Chinese conglomerate the world’s largest owner of movie theaters.)

Major deals in 2012 included Sinopec’s $2.5 billion stake in Devon Energy, Wanxiang’s $420 million stake in GreatPoint Energy, and Dalian Wanda’s $2.6 billion purchase of AMC.Rhodium
This could be a good thing. More outbound investment can help China move beyond being the world’s factory, a goal of the Chinese government, which has called its current economic model unstable and unsustainable. Investments in the US this year were in oil and gas extraction and advanced manufacturing operations, ventures that can help Chinese companies move up the value chain, Rhodium notes.

That should only accelerate. Chinese outbound investment is expected to grow in 2013 and beyond. Rhodium expects China’s cumulative global foreign direct investment to reach $1 trillion by 2020. In the US, Chinese acquisitions currently waiting for regulatory approval add up to nearly $5 billion, the group points out. China’s new leaders are devising ways to help Chinese people better invest abroad, like creating a new unit of its foreign exchange regulator to direct more of the country’s $3.3 trillion in reserves to Chinese companies expanding overseas.

Social catastrophe faces UK working poor
By Julie Hyland
3 December 2012
A social catastrophe is facing millions of working people in the UK, as the Conservative/Liberal Democrat government’s austerity measures and a deepening economic crisis take hold.
A study by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Monitoring poverty and social exclusion 2012, examines the impact of current government policy, especially regarding welfare reform.
Written by the New Policy Institute, the report shows that the number of people in working households living in poverty is now greater than the number of those in workless households in poverty.
Excluding pensioners, 6.1 million constitute the “working poor” compared to 5.1 million people without work. The “working poor” have been on the increase throughout the last decade as a result of ever-lower wages. At least 4.4 million jobs pay less than £7 per hour and low pay is rife in the service sector—including food, retail, hospitality, transport, information technology and financial services.
Low pay has been encouraged by successive governments. The previous Labour government introduced working tax credits, essentially as a subsidy to enable employees to keep down wage costs. The study finds that the number of working families receiving the credit rose by 50 percent from 2003 to 2012. The Conservative/Liberal Democrat government has said it intends to scrap the credit by 2016.
Across the country, employers have used the economic downturn to make significant cuts in wages and to implement layoffs. With official unemployment at more than 2.5 million, the numbers underemployed—i.e. unable to get the paid work they want—stands at a massive 6.5 million, the study shows. It cites the reduction in working hours imposed in many sectors as a significant factor in why unemployment is not even higher.
Poverty and unemployment are by no means static. Rather, millions face economic insecurity. Some 18 percent of people are in low income at any one time, the report states, but 33 percent have experienced at least one period of low income over a four-year period. While 1.6 million claim Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) at any one time, 4.8 million have claimed JSA at least once over the last two years.

White working-class children do worse in exams than poor children for whom English is a second language, a study shows.

Researchers also found that the most deprived Chinese British pupils are out-performing the wealthiest white British children by the age of 16.

Sorry to dissapointed you but I'm Indian, not white, I know it frustrated you th!t China is so low down in the world order and have never achieved anything, but that's life, it is a peasant nation so its no surprise, I know your jelous that anything great or important in the world was achieved by a white man, but that's life, they are just better than you, I know you hate it that the world is dominated and totally controlled by the west, and that China are an insignificant third world nation, but there's nothing you can do about it, you are naturally born an inferiour culture, that's why you have no important inventions, no cultural influence, no hard power, no soft power, no famous companies or sport or movies or music or anything, no good universities, an inferiour military, a peasant population that flee China as soon as they get the chance, I know you are so jelous of whites and how they are so superiour to you, but like all Chinese, there is nothing you can do about it except cry

LADIES AND GENTLE MEN, MORE EVIDENCE THAT THIS CLOWN DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT. He heard about hedge fund, valture funds so now he just throws them at people expecting no one would notice.

No our side does have problems but they are Leberals, hippiez and a slight economic rush, nothing I'd stay up about though. It will all be fixed eventually.
