How to deal with air pollution in Beijing?

I am heading to Beijing this month where the air pollution is notoriously apalling. Yesterday the air quality index reached a level which was double the level at which Salt Lake City doctors recently declared as a healthy emergency. Earlier this year it reached a level which was double that again. Does anyone have any tips about how to deal with this? Is there any evidence those face masks actually help? Any other contraptions or medication that help ward off the effects? I certainly won't be jogging outside.

Identify these grown(?) hollow "stones" I bought in China?

Bought these cream & brown hollow "pebbles" at a Beijing market a few years ago. I think they are grown, because each has a hole, like it was picked from a tree maybe. They are extremely lightweight but have a hard exterior. The lady who sold them to me cautioned they would break if dropped. I'm going back to China soon and would like to buy more, if I know what to ask for. [more inside]

China is really big! Where do I go?

After many other ideas have fallen through, I think I'll be going to China about 7 days in May. But it's so big! Inner Mongolia sounds cool; is it worth traveling around Hohhot? I could go surfing in Hainan, but how is the beach compared to Ha Long Bay, or Copacabana, or Playas del Este...? [more inside]
