So, yeah...Erm...

I live and work in China and, in addition to my regular job, help a fierociously intelligent nineteen-year-old girl with her English twice a week. I don't so much teach her as talk to her and attempt to develop her debating skills. Though not perfect, her English is very good so discussion is often deep with a tendency to take unpredictable twists and turns. We've taken to reading thoughtful articles together and then discussing the main points in addition to noting down any unfamiliar vocabulary. I'd be grateful if Hivemind could suggest some provocative, not overly academic articles that could serve this purpose. I'm running out of ideas. [more inside]

Beijing Baby.

I'm currently in Hong Kong and I've been offered a job working for a Brazilian company in Beijing. The work permit information they have sent me is so badly written as to be incomprehensible and the internet hasn't yield much better. Please help! My main question is: I'm British and, like all foreign nationals, I am required to submit a medical report stating that I'm in good health. What do I do? [more inside]
