Right now it’s just the test games, but in April formal competitions will be held in speed and figure skating. Is it stressful? No, it’s fun because I get to meet a lot of different people. Anyway, I have this thing on my keychain that’s supposed to help alleviate stress. It simulates popping bubble wrap, and after 100 pops, it rewards you with a sound like a door bell, a dog bark, or even a fart. How much did you pay for that? 70元. Is it worth it? Yes. No regrets.

Do you have any special talents? I can cook good vegan food… and pole dance. How long have you been pole dancing? I’ve only been taking lessons since the New Year, but one weekend my teacher told me I was going to perform. I felt I couldn’t let her down so I agreed. There was some miscommunication; I thought we had to wear black shorts, but everyone else showed up in sailor outfits. It was also a strange venue—some kind of bathhouse with a bunch of lazy chairs and middle-aged men and women in bathrobes, waving plastic clappers. We performed after a cross-dressing comedian, and once we started dancing, they stopped clapping. I think they were all mesmerised. Wow.

Qingdao Port to boost investment to offset the economic damage caused as a result of flagging exports by instituting policies to encourage domestic demand and create employment. The money will be used to further a number of projects, most notably an oil pipeline for Shandong province, and an oil storage facility. The port's five major business areas are crude oil, iron ore, coal, containers and grain. The company is also gearing up for a 'very large' project in Jiaonan, near Huangdao.

Coal demand has risen year on year in China - China is now the largest consumer on Earth. Since 2000 production has almost tripled (conveniently, to around 3 billion tonnes per year), and coal - the highest polluter of all the fossil fuels now supplies around 70% of China's electricity needs.

11th National Games Shandong is gearing up its preparations as the primary host of the 11th National Games. The sporting extravaganza's opening ceremony will take place on 11 October with various competitions taking place in 17 of Shandong's cities, and already 42 purpose-built venues have been constructed and a further 85 renovated or upgraded. Of all the 33 events, only the winter sports and marathon will take place outside of this province, in Liaoning, Jilin and Beijing. As is typical of Shandong (or sporting events in China), a dubious choice of branding was decided upon, called Taishan Boy.

Commander of the North China Sea Fleet on 4 March. Further details regarding the theme of the event, 'Harmonious Sea', were unveiled on 18 March, announcing a focus on allowing the navies of other nations to visit China. In addition to the exhibition of the vessels, the Chinese Navy will be arranging numerous social and cultural exchanges on board certain ships.

China's Navy celebrates its 60th anniversary this month, with a major naval display scheduled to take place towards the end of April. The event will feature a sail-past of Qingdao, and include many of China's most modern war vessels as well as showings of selected vessels from the US's and Russia's respective navies. The announcement was made by Wang Fushan, Deputy

The exact date of the event was not confirmed at the time of writing,

Chang Dechuan, a representative of the National People's Congress and member of Qingdao Port Company said, "Even in an economic downturn China's need for raw materials is evident," while later in March, Hu Jintao announced China would not hesitate to increase spending if economic improvements did not meet requirements, citing China's vast foreign exchange reserves as security enough to reach deeper into the pockets.

but according to the People's Daily, on 23 April 1949, Rear Admiral Lin Zun of the Kuomingtang Navy led an uprising that marked the declaration of the Navy of the East China Military Area Command - the first naval force of the PLA. This date was proclaimed to be the founding date of the PLA Navy. Many of the PLA Navy's most advanced ships are based at the northern fleet headquarters in Qingdao.

Going Underground Qingdao's much talked-about metro rail restarted construction last month, with developments taking place beneath Crowne Plaza and Heilongjiang Lu. The latest plans involve constructing three lines, linking the southern extremes of the peninsula with Qingdao International Airport in Chengyang.

Map Š REDSTAR 2009, order yours at info@myredstar.com

Construction on Qingdao's metro began back in the 1990s, but was cancelled due to lack of funding, at a time when several other second tier cities' metro construction was also cancelled. When the first line opens, it is expected to transport 235,000 passengers per day.

The lines are scheduled for three phases of construction the first, from 2009 to 2014, will adjoin the new long distance railway station near Zhongshan Lu to the old station in Sifang, via Nanjing Lu. Phase two will begin construction in 2013, and take passengers from the new train station to Licun via Beer City near Shilaoren Beach. Phase 3, to begin construction in 2016 will traverse a route from the train station to the airport.

China 40 A wide-ranging real estate forecast into China's top 40 Tier II and III cities was unveiled on 13 March, conducted by Jones Lang LaSalle. Paying particular attention to three broad categories - office space, logistics space and retail space, the report outlines what the future might hold for China's brightest urban landscapes. The premise of the research, entitled The China 40, is that by 2020, just 10% of commercial real estate activity in China will be concentrated in the top tier cities - due to factors such as improved educational standards, more relaxed attitudes to foreign investment and improved transport accessibility

in smaller cities. The report analysed a total of 275 cities, focussing on a wide range of attributes

such as GDP, FDI and the number of educational institutions within the city to define the country's next superpower cities. Qingdao compares favourably, and is placed among the winners in the logistics category. In the retail sector, Qingdao is expected to experience a sudden boom in the supply of retail space in 2009, due to the opening of several huge shopping malls in Chengyang and Laoshan. Regarding office space, the sector remains comparatively resilient despite the global financial crisis, with several new buildings due for completion in 2009.

Zhong Nan Hai Carsick Cars at REDSTAR Carsick Cars are one of the most celebrated bands currently playing on the Beijing scene, not simply because their music - a stripped bare cacophony of distorted guitar and bellicose, faux-political lyrics has been adopted as the defining sound of an army of pretty, young Chinese urbanites, but also because the story of frontman Zhang Shouwang's encounter with Professor of Finance at Beijing University, Michael Pettis, is the story of how one of the most dynamic and energetic rock scenes in the world sprung into being. In 2002, seventeen-year-old Zhang had already come across Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins at local CD shops. He was also into the graphic artist Andy Warhol, so much that he decided to sport a t-shirt bearing one of his infamous pop-art pieces. Unbeknownst to Zhang at the time, this simple work of a banana also graced the cover of Velvet Underground’s seminal 1967 album. While strolling around Houhai in Beijing one day, Pettis was excited to have crossed paths with a young native displaying such discerning taste in music, and they struck up a conversation. Pettis discovered

Marcus Murphy

Zhang had no idea who Velvet Underground was, but regardless they quickly relocated to a music store. Zhang’s life has been filled with glorious noise ever since, much of which comes from his own hands, and their attacks on awkwardly tuned guitars. This chance guanxi became instrumental in defining the direction of the underground rock scene of China; Zhang has become one of the most talented guitarists in the Middle Kingdom, playing lead for Beijing trio Carsick Cars, while the other two band members, Levis and Li Qing, also form the musical body of post-punk extroverts Snapline. Pettis opened the defining club of Beijing's music scene, D-22, a club with a clear goal in mind - to nurture original music, and to become the epicentre for experimental music in China.

Kicking off at Qingdao's beloved Pichai Yuan (Zhongshan Lu) on 11 April, this lineup is not to be missed. See the following pages for full event details.

Playmaker Playmaker make unbelievably catchy and clean songs, derived from a family history immersed in The Beatles, The Kinks, The Undertones and The Rolling Stones. The band have spent the last year gigging ferociously, so expect a sharp stage presence and amazing sound.

Snapline Snapline are one of Beijing's fastest rising bands. Musically, the group take massive influence from such dark, post-punk musicians of the late seventies and early eighties as Joy Division and The Cure, powering their songs with ambient bass lines punctuated by aberrant, angular guitar riffing. So strongly does their music and live show echo the era, ex-PiL drummer Martin Atkins insisted on producing their first CD in late 2006.

Fancyworld Ziyo Beijing outsiders - they are not affiliated to Maybe Mars or Modern Sky Records, yet have all the quality and musicianship of the best bands today in the US or UK. Nonchalant, libertine and supremely switched-on, the smart group of five met in Beijing, when stunning singer (and radio host - HitFM.cn, Sunday afternoons) Helen Feng was introduced to guitarist Da Ming. Tragedy and hilarity ensued in equal measure, today the band are renowned for grade-A production, and tight, catchy, imminently enjoyable music.

The Dama Llamas Fusing elements of hip-hop with punk but utilising hi-tech guitar effects to bring a house music vibe, The Llamas are a garage band extraordinaire. Recently written new material has moved away from the reggae influences of the earlier stuff, instead moving towards a more layered soundscape of dueling lead guitar lines and dark bass riffing. New York's greatest musical export of recent years - Battles - have become the carrot on the stick dangling in front of this eager group of drunks.

Zhaoze Guangzhou's finest band, and a supremely thoughtful and resourceful act using instruments from the classical guqin to cutting edge guitar effects units to craft a progressive sound, reminiscent of Radiohead, Sigur Ros or Pink Floyd. Zhaoze, formerly The Swamp, are themselves cultivators of a wide music scene, their latest release being a collaboration with some of China's most celebrated electronic musicians.

The band earned themselves a loyal following in town for tight performances and raw, energetic live shows with a dash of bluesy, jazzy chordal nuance and ubiquitous, "Na-na-na" choruses. Where have they been these past two years? Liang Liang, founding member said, "We've not been lazing around. We've spent a lot of time practicing recently, in preparation for the recording of our second CD. Most of the material at MAX 09 will be the new stuff."

PB33 The tuneful and forward-thinking band of pop-punkers from Beijing Recording Arts College have had a busy year, releasing their first EP last November. Disco Boys & Girls Night Out is a catchy, punchy homage to the nightlife and party scene in Beijing, putting dance beats with power chords underneath lyrics about getting lucky, in a sordid and debauched riposte to more cleancut China punks like SKO.

Thimble Clan Contemplative rapper Shazhou deserves kudos for his overarching views of his art form. With his crew hailing from the East Coast (New Jersey) and West Coast (California) as well as creative members from Qingdao, such as music photographer Da Bing, they are a solid and musically diverse unit. Music-tech marvel Jeff Liang and perpetually entertaining acoustic guitar innovator Sam 'Who-Likes-To-Jam' Roth have been moistening audiences at RS's Unplugged evenings for over a year, and it's about time the group exposed themselves as the original and inventive musicians they are.

What is MAX 09?

Qingdao Music & Art eXposition, held annually since 2007, is Qingdao’s biggest independent music and arts festival. It promotes creativity and originality. That means no plagiarism, no piracy, just passion. By bringing musicians from China's major cities (and beyond) to Qingdao or by giving local artists somewhere to exhibit, or by encouraging schools and universities to get involved and let their students experiment with design, writing, music, film or fashion, we hope Qingdao will get on the map for even more high-profile tours of even more internationally renowned performers. MAX 09 will bring the cream of Beijing’s alternative music scene to Qingdao for two nights of performances in venues around the city, before staging an epic, 9-band extravaganza on 11 April. Last year featured musicians from Beijing’s Recording Arts University, Tag Team Records and

Hot Pot Music. This year sees a band from Maybe Mars, D22's in-house label, feature in Qingdao for the first time, amongst a line-up encapsulating such diverse genres as hip-hop, punk, heavy metal, post-rock and Britpop. Starting on 12 April, Creative 100, the creative industry park on Nanjing Lu will be transformed into display space for local and international artists, in disciplines from painting and sculpting to modern media installations and cinema. This year established artists including Li Lan, Da Mao and Liang Kegang will be in the downstairs display area, which will later be converted into a temporary gallery for Qingdao heavyweight Zhang Yi Zhi. The 5th floor will be outfitted with display space for dozens of amateur artists, from a variety of traditional and digital disciplines, largely representing university programmes in Qingdao.

Pichai Yuan 11 April

Before Germany occupied Jiaozhou Bay at the turn of the 19th Century, Qingdao bore little resemblance to the Old Town that we see today. The colonists brought with them the technologies of industrial Europe - metalwork that made bulk shipping and rail transport possible, stonework that enabled the construction of larger buildings and the widespread use of coal in industry and heating, shaping the future of Qingdao as an industrial and logistics powerhouse in northern China. When one refers to Qingdao's Old Town, the Bavarian buildings and red tiled roofs spring to mind - the Teutonic contingent have undeniably left an indelible mark on Qingdao aesthetically as well as commercially, but as to the period prior to colonisation, there is little left to suggest what life might have been like for local residents. And with the insatiable drive for progression that typifies modern China, it would be all to easy to eradicate any remnants of the city prior to its first industrial epoch.

That's why the redevelopment of Pichai Yuan 劈 柴院 is so important. Pichai Yuan literally translates as 'wood-chopping garden', and its place in the history of Qingdao is well defined. The hutonglike marketplace is a lively, engaging glimpse into Qingdao's history. With winding roads, restaurants and a performance square, today it is a great venue for mingling with folk and enjoying cheap eats.

timber to businessmen on the western end of the peninsula, and people from Jiaonan would sail across on market days to trade. Such was the influence the area had on society at the time, that even today, locals remember their grandparents' stories of famous dishes of doufunao soup or Chunhe Lou restaurant, a venue renowned for its insurmountable guotie dumplings.

In its previous incarnation, though, merchants and traders would converge on the market, near what is today Zhongshan Lu, selling and buying wood. Residents of Laoshan sold their

The influence Pichai Yuan had on local life was massive - people converged there to purchase wood cooking, building and heating, and as such it became very much a source of life's necessities especially in winter time. As the years progressed, it developed into a social meetino's much talg place too, with numerous restaurants and jiujia - baijiu markets. As the area became less important in trade due to the newer modes of industry brought by the Germans, the courtyards were used for local acting performances, art shows and fortune tellers. In 2009 it will continue that tradition, hosting some of China's best rock acts. The main event of MAX 09 will take place on 11 April at Pichai Yuan. Tickets are 100元 and are available at REDSTAR or by calling 8388-2269.

Since 1989, visionary organisation Koryo Tours has been arranging tours into North Korea while continually documenting the changes and challenges inside the isolated autocracy in both film and print. With their unique access, they have become the world's foremost source of information on the Hermit Kingdom.

This April, they will return to Qingdao for the first time since 2007 for the Fashion & Films evening at La Villa to broadcast movies that though not produced by themselves, are representative of the Asian entertainment that they so enjoy. REDSTAR caught up with Simon Cockerell, Koryo's Tour Manager to question him on life and love in the world's great mystery state. What is life like for an average citizen in North Korea? Very difficult. There are consistent shortages of power and material goods, and the people are not very rich. But like anywhere else, people are just concerned with assuring their health and the health of their families. The capital Pyongyang is more advanced than the rest of the country and has an architectural style that's not used anywhere else in the world... but since 1989 there have not been many new buildings built. It's symptomatic of the country's deterioration since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Between 1989 and 1994, the global dissolution of socialism - coupled with natural disasters and the death of Kim Il Sung - contributed to North Korea's economic deterioration.

North Korea's unlikely celluloid centre REDSTAR

Trading systems broke down. Oil, food and fertiliser became very scarce. North Korea was heavily subsidised by other socialist nations, but as China for instance moved from a barter system to a hard currency, the volume of trade with North Korea decreased. What are the entry requirements and restrictions? They have been standardised for quite some time, and are quite limited. US citizens for instance can only enter for four days at a time, and only during the period of the Mass Games, which are held during the months of August-September. For other nations, the entry procedure is similar, but travellers can go at other times during the year and there are less restrictions on what they can do while there. How many times have you been into North Korea? 71. Do Koryo have any films in the pipeline? We are actually working on a romantic comedy, which will be made with a North Korean film company - actually, I should say 'the' North Korean film company as everything there is state-owned. We will write the script and secure funding but I can't say any more at this point. Kim Jong Il is said to be an avid movie fan; would he have seen your movies? It's reported that he's a movie fan but nobody really knows anything about him. There is a book that is said to have been written by him called The Art Of Cinema. Since it was released, every cinematic work produced in North Korea has been based on that book, and it was definitely written by someone with an intimate knowledge of cinema.

Get Plastered Dominic Johnson-Hill talks t-shirts

REDSTAR

'Contemporary' and 'Chinese' may not have seemed the best of bedfellows in the past century but almighty Beijing continues pushing massive square pegs into diminutive round holes. For those that live, work or play in the northern capital, the creative scene adds a much-needed vibrancy to the otherwise foreboding metropolis. With its tongue-in-cheek pokes at the realities of Chinese life, Dominic Johnson-Hill's Plastered T-shirts are the souvenir supremos of Nanluoguxiang, the popular and internationalised hutong in the heart of Dongcheng district. Having lived in China for 16 years - and 5 of those in his own hutong - the British expat is well-versed in China's nuance and idiosyncrasy. This month, the fashion impresario takes his show to Qingdao, for a night of fashion and films at the REDSTAR office, and will start distributing his outlandish tees at La Villa. We quizzed him thusly: Where do you get ideas for your designs? Anywhere. I like iconic imagery and spend a lot of time with my camera checking out markets. It could be an old stamp, a pack of fags. For my first t-shirt, I superimposed a sexy woman on an illustration of the Great Wall. It was based on an observation of Chinese signs where they'll stick a bowl of noodles on a background of a beautiful landscape - that's very strange. We tap into the Chinese market a bit - locals like the designs because we use nostalgic imagery.

You won the British Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2008. How did that come about? I definitely didn't expect to win. The criteria they based their decision on was quite wide. I went into the competition with a clear idea in mind - not to portray entrepreneurship as a purely financial endeavour. I think innovation and ideas are more important, opening new boundaries. Push an idea, and if it's profitable, it's a bonus. That's what I said in my interview anyway. But what else did you do that made you stand out? Maybe it's the way we marketed; we really pushed it into people's faces when we started out. We did catwalk shows in hutongs - no one had ever done that before. We sold the clothes like a door-to-door salesman, got out there in the streets and pushed it with flyers and

It's very difficult to get a slice of the Chinese market, but we did, as I say. And I had a good laugh doing it. What's so good about Beijing? I like the people - lazy and direct. I like the Eastern Blocness, and the fact that it's the seat of power yet remains so unpretentious. But it's still so creative, with bands playing in basements and artists busy everywhere. It's a manly city, and it isn't wrapped in plastic like Shanghai. Buy Plastered t-shirts at my-mai 5 Xianggang Zhong Lu! Plastered'n'Pyongyang: Fashion and Film (feat.

Creative by Design

In person with Shen Jiarong As MAX 07 was coming together as Qingdao's first annual art and music exposition, REDSTAR struggled to find a visual identity for an event that celebrated creativity from such a broad array of disciplines. Enter Shen Jiarong - the designer had recently launched a visual identity for the Creative 100 Industry Park where the event had found a home, and brought an idea that captured the essence and heritage of music festivals around the world. Returning to MAX 09 as an exhibitor, Shen Laoshi shared his story with us.

History I went to Shanghai's Qinggong Yi Zhuangke Xuexiao, the best art school in China at the time. My family has been into a variety of artistic pursuits for generations; among them, my grandfather was a jewellery designer, my father wrote poems about workers (at the time it was either that or farmers!) and my brothers Shen Jialu and Shen Yiwei are successful screenwriters today. I've always been attracted to Chinese art and design. People like us began to learn about Chinese culture when we were very young, and Chinese art has brilliant ways of incorporating Chinese thought and philosophical ideas.

Identity I am an illustrator. My designs are creative and new, but people often see it as familiar because of the way that it incorporates traditional factors. I draw pictures for the international section of People's Daily twice a week, it's been well-received around the world. Every five years, China has a national exhibition of illustrations, with around 300 pictures; it's very difficult to get anything exhibited, but so far everything I've sent has been exhibited. My early work was also shown

REDSTAR

at a UN exposition in Japan many years ago. I feel confident that my work has been well-received.

Inspiration I'm not sure either, it's funny - I enjoy my status in design, and I feel there's nothing that I can't do. Entrepreneurs, leaders, often ask for projects and concepts that are bizarre at first reading, but I love taking them on and cooperating to generate ideas that are totally unique. When I get to do this sort of thing with foreign agencies and companies, it pushes the boundaries of my experience and becomes very exciting. For example, when I do designs, I love to use characters - it works well with logos in particular, I can take the message or name and develop it into something that resonates with the viewer on multiple levels. Designers, in China and abroad, are hugely focused on visual communication that is simple, clear and attractive. I love making posters (like the materials for MAX 07 and MAX 09) because of the challenge of encapsulating many ideas in a single striking image.

Forty years ago, we had to write the text on any poster; computer processes give us a lot more time to think about how to make a design more effective. When I started studying design, the main task was to create packaging for products; they believed that '货 买一张皮', the cover is the most important part of the product. Now, design is oriented toward changing people's lifestyle. In the past, it was very superficial; now, we're designing to touch people's hearts.

Organisations promote sustainable timber

With a global economic downturn well under way, the softwood forests of northeastern Russia and exotic hardwoods of tropical Southeast Asia could certainly use the respite. Over the past ten years China’s timber imports from these areas have increased at an exponential rate with major causes being two fold: domestic policies that came about in the late 1990’s, greatly limiting domestic deforestation (while encouraging the converse, allowing China to become the most heavily tree-plantation covered nation), and secondly, the insatiable diet of developed nations for manufactured goods at the lowest prices possible, largely unaware or unconcerned with the true costs.

Local roots In 2002, Qingdao was a top-five hardwood log importer of China, a major centre for the

paper industry and the largest importer of pulp. Regardless of where you are in the world, there's a good chance that the wood used to make your last grande macchiato’s paper cup, and the avantgarde styled coffee table it sat upon, once passed through our very own Jiaozhou Bay. Paper products are made from softwoods or conifers, which dominate the boreal forests covering most of Russia and Canada. The timber trade on the Chinese-Russian border is shady to say the least. The World Wildlife Fund (China’s longest active international environmental NGO) estimates anywhere between 20-50% of logs come in through the black market. Across the border in Dalnerechensk, Russian loggers use silenced-chainsaws and must pass by a chain of bribes from racketeering local officials. The central governments of both Russia and China are well

aware and have addressed the win-win situation a better regulated system could provide both economically (more equal distribution of revenue and taxes) and environmentally (the boreal forests sequester a significant amount of greenhouse gases) but progress has been slow. From 19972004 the average annual growth rate of timber imports from Russia was around 70% and if the taxing harvest rates continue, Far East Russia will be devoid of harvestable timber within 30 years. As China sheds the cloak of an agrarian society, a unique connection with the land is quickly diminishing. Today, there are several active NGO’s looking to preserve pieces of China’s guanxi with Mother Nature via markets. One shining example of this effort is an international certification system created by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which monitors the economic and environmental


culture 17

A barrier to the spread of conscious consumption has been the lack of standardised certification schemes that teach consumers how to buy sustainably malpractices of timber industries across the world. FSC’s first certified forest in China came about in 2002 and their certified products are quickly popping up in home-furnishing stores across the nation. Because Qingdao is such a dense centre of wood-product manufacturing and logistics, FSC has found it to be an effective site to concentrate their Chinese outreach efforts.

Previously, apartment owners in the many boomtowns of China struggled through tedious, long-lines of retailers, purchasers and designers in order to furnish their new home. More recently many are taking up a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach that currently dominates 91% of the U.S. (i.e. Home Depot, Lowe’s) and European (B&Q, IKEA) markets. Within China, Orient Home (China), B&Q (UK) and Home Mart (China) have dominated the DIY market.

A major barrier to the spread of ‘green’ conscious consumption has been the lack of standardised certification schemes that outline the ways that buying a certain product is more sustainable than buying some alternative. B&Q is one of the largest DIY franchises in China and has a Qingdao branch located on Shandong Lu. They have pledged that by 2010, all wood products or paper in their stores will be certified by FSC and other groups. They also hope to increase their customers' awareness of timber-related issues and steer away from purchasing exotic wood unless there is sound evidence that it was legally harvested. Pledges are being made now but it remains largely up to customers to show their commitment. Amazingly, the FSC-certified lumber at Qingdao's local B&Q doesn't carry the price premium that is often assumed with materials that are produced in a more conscientious manner; the choice may be a 'no-brainer', but it hinges on consumer awareness.

A few years ago, IPSOS China conducted a survey that discovered not only were over three-fourths of Chinese citizens of Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai aware of major deforestation issues around the world, but also that they would avoid shopping at stores they knew were supplied by lumber companies using unsustainable practices. Just a casual conversation with local middleclass shoppers supports the idea that Chinese citizens are very aware of environmental issues and will take steps within reason to improve the environment around them.

Although there has certainly been a slight decrease in traffic on the Yellow Sea, it is likely large amounts of timber will continue to dock here in Qingdao given the Politburo’s $586 billion dollar stimulus plan alongside an enduring urbanisation trend (which entails the furnishing of homes for an expected urban population of 685 million by the end of next year). We hope that the prospect of increasingly comfortable lifestyles will intersect the legacy of 2008’s 'Green Olympics' and foster a broad commitment to increasing environmentallysustainable consumption.

Do it yourself

Vital Stats An estimated 25 million trees are cut down each year for the prolific, disposable chopsticks used in China. Grab a slick pair of collapsible, reusable kuaizi online and whip them out on your next bowl of lamian. It is said that Wal-mart clerks in the U.S. are told to use as many plastic bags as possible so customers feel they are getting ‘more’ for their money, but don’t be fooled, save some mao and sport a cotton, Chinglish bag next time you’re off to Carrefour or Jusco.

Making a difference The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is China’s oldest international NGO. Their most frequently used symbol is the once-nearextinct Panda (hunting of the ‘national treasure’ was legal only 80 years ago). Some of their current projects include boosting the affinity for the environment in China’s 200-million students as well as encouraging eco-tourism to boost local economies in southwestern areas where locals often exhaust local natural resources. The Nature Conservancy are the largest landowners apart from the government in the U.S. They are also working on several projects within China including the dissemination of eco-friendly stoves that run on human and animal waste in rural Yunnan. One of Shanghai’s most active volunteer associations, Bean (shanghai.beanonline.org) often hosts environmentally related activities as well as teaching hygiene or English to migrant laborers’ children. They have offices in Shanghai, Beijing, Nanchang and Chengdu. For a comprehensive list of Chinese environmental NGOs visit: www.greengo.cn There are currently four active in Shandong province. Legendary primataologist Jane Goodall started Roots & Shoots (www.jgishanghai.org) back in 1991 with educating youth being a main goal. The group is very active and does some amazing things across China.

Class of your own The toys of teaching

Toy stores are for children and their parents, but as a teacher I enjoy browsing in them. They're filled with products and activities that introduce the world in a fun way. Hey, that's the same thing I want to do with my teaching! While looking for colourful images and real-life objects to add to lesson plans, I’ve found that toys can be easier to transport, longer lasting (plastic food versus real), and more enjoyable for students of any age. Wander the aisles and let your imagination help you decide how various toys might be used in your classroom. When modeling telephone etiquette, toy phones with silly rings add more fun than using your mobile. Bags of plastic animals bring life to any discussion of the outdoors. Dolls can show action without you always having to jump, run, and cartwheel yourself. If you can only find dolls that are blue-eyed blondes, animals may be a better choice. Use them as characters in stories, to talk about putting on shoes and socks, or even as a partner for conversation.

Toy cars are fun and can generate a truckload of vocabulary. They may even spark discussions about the cost of automobiles to the environment. You’ll find kits for recreating a doctor’s office or a kitchen complete with food. Teach your students to make a sandwich or pretend you are at a restaurant. Role plays and discussions go better when preceded with some modeling. Watch the students clamour to volunteer if toys are involved in the demonstration. Puzzles can demonstrate a grammar lesson, such as how certain concepts fit together. Let the early arrivals play with a brain teasing puzzle before a class that involves critical thinking. You may not have enough class time to complete a jigsaw puzzle, but the picture on the box could illustrate your topic. Let the students continue to work on it during the break. Rather than yell across the room at students reverting to Chinese during their English dialogues, I reach for my magic wand. Bought at a toy

store, this wand really is enchanted - any student I point to magically begins speaking English. It prevents me from using socially-unacceptable pointing, and my university students laugh every time I use it. To begin a class or to re-claim the students’ attention in the middle of it, I sometimes look for unusual objects or noisemakers. More than once, something brought to class just for fun has turned out to be a great way to illustrate a language point. Whether you have a particular goal or are looking for inspiration, why not let the child within you run free in toy land?

MAXimum Learning Extend your teaching beyond the classroom by encouraging your students to come to the MAX 09 Concert and Art Exhibition! Students can meet foreigners, sample both Western and Chinese culture, and generally have a blast! The art exhibit will contain a small stage for students to make English presentations. Prepare your students to give a speech or tell a story, and help them get them over the shyness thing!

Knowing the Way DaoDeJing, Chapter 25 Rejoice! Winter is past! The bitter Qingdao cold has given way to the "shufu" Qingdao spring, which in time will yield to the glorious Qingdao summer. It's the perfect time to crack open that perennial Daoist classic, the DaoDeJing (道德经) and explore the mystery of Chapter 25.

cosmology whereby there is a perfect social order decreed by Heaven. At the top of that order was the king/emperor, commonly called the Son of Heaven. Daoists have railed against this formulation, warning people of the folly of emphasising society over nature.

Usually, Dao refers to a path or a way which one may 'follow' in order to find a balanced, harmonious life. However, there is a grander definition of the word. In Chapter 25 are some ideas about the creation of the universe.

Yet here we see a Daoist verse placing the King in an elite group - the 'Four Greats', together with the Dao, Heaven, and Earth. This apparently admits some truth to the notion of a cosmic order that society fits into.

The Dao is described as 'absolute', 'infinite', and 'coming before the universe' (literally "Heaven and Earth"). In another chapter we read that "The Dao produced One; One made Two; Two yielded Three; the Three made the 10,000 myriad things." It seems that the Dao is a sort of god-force which preceded everything else imaginable. Is it religious? Or is it metaphysical theory? Or both? Or do the two perspectives come together? Abandon both. Just say that it provides a unique answer to the great question of where the world and universe come from. Either way, we know that the Dao came before Heaven and Earth. We can read that it is "receding to places remote and distant, so far away, and then it reverses." It sounds like a maxim from the YiJing - the Dao is always changing. It encompasses everything, embodying its opposite within itself. The Confucians are famous for declaring the existence of a

One imagines that a Daoist would never admit to agreeing with a Confucian, but here we see some common ground, which tells us something about China during that era (some 80-or-so generations ago). Both ideologies took for granted that the human social order derives from Heaven. The sentiment was probably felt by all Chinese. The ending in this chapter is

DaoDeJing Chapter 25 There exists something absolute and complete in itself Which came before the entire universe (天地). Silent & solitary it is. Infinite it is, standing alone and unchangeable. I do not know its name and so I call it Dao, Though one might also call it "The Great." The Great is receding, receding to places remote and distant, so far away, then it reverses.

Gar Kerbel (戴岭)

tricky to translate. It reiterates the hierarchy of godliness, proceeding from humans up to the Dao. But the Dao does not follow anything higher. We are told that "道法自然". The Dao follows, or is in line with ziran (Nature) - it's own Nature. You could translate it as, "The Dao follows itself." Yet being absolute and the mother of Heaven and Earth, the Dao therefore is Everything. Everything following itself? The Dao - and the entire universe following it - is in constant change. The Dao does not follow the rules of change, though. It is absolute; it is its own set of rules. The Daoists, unlike the Confucians, warn us that we ought to study its ways. Personally, I think that both perspectives are needed. Next month we'll see yet a different thread shared by Laozi and Confucius.

And so we say the Dao is great Heaven is great Earth is great, and also the King is great. In all of the world, these are the four greats And the King is indeed one of them. People follow the Earth. The Earth follows Heaven. Heaven follows the Dao. The Dao follows the laws of Nature and spontaneity.

Valkyrie

Transporter 3

Directed by Bryan Singer

The Wrestler

Directed by Olivier Megaton

As a thriller, Valkyrie has a big strike against it: most viewers know, going in, that Adolf Hitler either a) committed suicide in March 1945 or b) escaped to Antarctica in a nuclear-powered submarine and joined his fellow Reptoids in the Hollow Earth. He definitely wasn't killed on July 20th, 1944, when disaffected military officers staged a coup d'etat that might've worked, if not for that one minor detail. Valkyrie smartly forsakes an omnipresent view of events and sticks mainly with Claus von Stauffenberg (Tom Cruise), who personally undertook the failed assassination. The audience is privileged to little that Stauffenberg doesn't know, and the last act (following his botched effort) finds the conspirators barricaded in a Berlin military complex. The suspense hinges on how long they can forestall the inevitable, not on the the success or failure of their plan. It helps that Cruise mostly suppresses his penchant for VOICE-RAISING THEATRICS, giving no easy outlet for the accumulated tension. He does a decent imitation of a cool, determined, career military man decent enough that the brief glimpses of Stauffenberg's family life feel out of place. But this is more than an exciting night at the movies. This is a 'prestige picture', with a mostly British supporting cast and onscreen text proclaiming that this is very important history stuff. Valkyrie isn't shaded enough to work on that level: the plotters are defined solely by anti-Nazism (Stauffenberg's own ultra-nationalism is reduced here to a couple of references to "sacred Germany"), and Stauffenberg's stated aim - to prove, through action, that 'Germany' and 'Hitler' are hardly synonymous - is weirdly mitigated by giving Hitler the one and only German accent. As a thriller, Valkyrie is above average, but the historical detail is too thinly developed to leave a lasting impression. It's popcorn entertainment with a high-drama veneer. -Josh Martin

Directed by Darren Aronofsky

Part 3 is typically either the end of the line for a franchise or just another installment in an endless succession of money-spinners - think James Bond, Friday the13th, or Death Wish. Transporter 3 leaves room for a sequel, but doesn't make much of case for one. Even Frank Martin (Jason Statham) knows this series has run its course: he's comfortably retired as the movie begins, relaxing in the south of France and turning down an especially insistent job offer. He's persuaded back into action by a sociopathic mastermind (Prison Break's Robert Knepper) and sent barreling through Central Europe to deliver yet another mysterious 'package' - the high explosives strapped to Frank's wrist seal the deal. Transporter 3 feels similarly obligatory. Statham brings his unflappable tough-guy persona, while novice director 'Olivier Megaton' provides a look identical to everything else from Luc Besson's Euro-action assembly line. Even veteran fight choreographer Corey Yuen couldn't be bothered this time around: his two big scenes play like mirror versions of each other, even if Frank goes shirtless for one of them. In fact, the film is as much about Statham's sex appeal as over-the-top action. To that end, ample screen time is given over to the relationship between Frank and his latest passenger (Natalya Rudakova), which generates about as much heat as Harold and Maude (no matter how often Statham exposes his torso). The romance between the steely, near-middle-aged Frank and a spoiled twentysomething candy raver is as convincing as you'd expect - but then, this is a universe where cars can drive on two wheels just by jerking the steering wheel really hard. And it's only in isolated moments like that, where the film drops its main character's studied self-seriousness and concedes its own absurdity, that Transporter 3 justifies its existence. -Josh Martin

The Wrestler is a film about aging gracefully and living for all the right reasons, a lesson taught by an actor who hasn’t, playing a broken man who plays a super-hero in staged ring fights. My initial response to the news that Aronofsky was making a film about professional wrestling was incredulity. After 2006's disastrous The Fountain I felt burned by the director who had given us the emotionally challenging Pi and Requiem for a Dream. It seemed to typify all the bad things that can happen when a brilliant director is given free reign to do whatever he wants with a huge budget—crash and burn. The Wrestler is as much a chastening of Aronofsky's directing chops as it is Mickey Rourke's rebirth as a true Hollywood leading man. Known more for his steamy action flicks, Rourke had become something of his own joke in the industry showing up anytime a tough guy prop was needed, talent optional. Where John Travolta’s career rehab involved a hapless gunman in Pulp Fiction, Rourke's turn as Randy 'The Ram' Robinson is the performance of a lifetime; the product of a man who has known the heights of fame but is learning to accept just how far he has fallen. And like Rourke’s Marv in Sin City, Randy has a 'condition'. This Ram's heart is failing and the only love he's ever found acceptance in is going to kill him if he keeps going. Randy realises that he might just have to give up the mat if he's going to make it another day. The performance-side of small-town pro wrestling is treated tenderly here and the interplay between Randy, Marisa Tomei’s golden-hearted dancer and Evan Rachel Woods as a “maybe-lesbian” daughter provide beautiful analogs to the main event—The Ram in the ring. -Ryan Blocher

' THIS IS IT! '

AFTER YEARS SPENT AS A VIRTUAL RECLUSE, MANY PEOPLE DOUBTED HIS ABILITY TO SELL OUT THE 20,000 SEAT ARENA

JACKO STAGES COMEBACK

Over 1.5 million Michael Jackson fans scrambling to buy tickets for his London gigs have sent websites into meltdown. Two sites offering presale tickets to his O2 Arena shows crashed as people from around the world including Congo, Paraguay and Korea went online in an attempt to secure seats for his comeback tour. After years spent as a virtual recluse, many people doubted his ability to sell out the 20,000 seat arena. An icon through the Eighties and Nineties, he was relegated to showbiz curiosity after facing financial woes, media exposes, and child molestation charges, for which he was acquitted. But not only did Jacko sell out his original ten shows; he later

announced a further 20 following fan frenzy in London, and is now also booked through the months of January and February 2010. Jackson himself is said to be ecstatic, although he was up to his eccentric behavior as he kept the crowd waiting for 90 minutes before arriving at the 02 to announce the concerts and then stayed just four minutes. His appearance was full of air-punches as he told the crowd his London concerts would be his last in the capital, repeating over and over, "this is it!" It is difficult to see how he will be able to get through the grueling schedule, with the concerts running from July to September, even though the 50 year old has been given a one day on, one day off arrangement.

The residency will be Jackson’s first long run of concerts in 12 years. He has not released a new album since 2001 and his recent performances have been brief and disastrous. He suffered stage fright at the 2006 World Music Awards, held in London, and was unable to perform his smash hit ‘Thriller’. Another singer had to step in before Jackson shuffled on stage and got through just one verse and one chorus of 'We Are The World'.

Online bookies are capitalising on the potential for disaster, offering odds that he will miss at least a few of the fantastical number of shows in the upcoming engagement. With tickets costing between £50 and £75 (480-720元), Jackson could earn £50 million from the run and is then expected to go on to tour and release a new album.

Tax regulations for non-resident enterprises The State Administration of Taxation (SAT) has issued the tax regulations for non-resident enterprises that do business and have establishments or places of business in China.

on time, the local tax bureau is authorised to collect information on other income derived by nonresident enterprises in China and charge overdue tax and interest surcharges from the payers of other income items.

Tax registration and filing for nonresident enterprises in China is set to begin from 1 March, 2009 while 2008 corporate income tax filing should be done by 31 May, 2009. Under SAT’s ‘Decree 19 on Provisional Administrative Measures Governing Tax Collection on Contracted Projects and Provision of Services by Non-resident Enterprises,’ companies that contract in projects or provide services in China should register with the tax bureau where the project is located within 30 days of finalising the contract. Companies should then register again within 15 days after the project has been completed. Local companies and individuals that outsource projects to nonresident enterprises should submit contract/service related documents, tax registration certificate of the non-resident enterprises and other relevant documents to the bureau within 30 days after contract signing. In the event that details of the contract are revised, non-resident enterprises should report the changes to the tax bureau within 10 days after. Moreover, companies are also required to report their billing status and submit documents within 30 days of receiving billing. Local companies and individuals that are required to withhold tax must register with the tax bureau where the project is located within 30 days from the start of the withholding obligation. Depending on the instructions from the tax bureau, non-resident enterprises could be

Annie Cui

The ‘Administrative Measures on Final Settlement and Payment of CIT for Non-resident Enterprises, Circular 6,’ dictates that non-resident enterprises that have establishments or places of business in the country are still required to pay for corporate income tax regardless of whether they make a loss or profit.

For assistance with, or questions concerning tax regulations for non-resident enterprises in China, contact info@dezshira.com or visit www.dezshira.com.

companies that contract in projects or provide services in China should register with the local tax bureau the corporate income tax (CIT), business tax (BT) and value-added tax (VAT) withholding agents. Non-resident enterprises are required to submit their corporate income tax both quarterly and annually in addition to settling tax payment upon completing their projects. If a non-resident enterprise does not register and submit the documents needed by the tax bureau, they shall be excluded from preferential treatments of tax treaties.

Non-resident enterprises with BT or VAT taxable activities and with places of business in China should file and pay BT or VAT themselves. Those with no place of business should have their withholding agents complete filing and payment. Non-resident enterprises or PRC outsourcers should submit necessary document to the tax bureau within 30 days of signing the contract, or they should withhold BT and VAT for non-resident enterprises. In the event that non-resident enterprises are not able to pay tax

Non-residents should submit annual CIT returns to the tax bureau and complete annual CIT filing within five months of the end of a year. Non-resident enterprises that stop business in the middle of a year should complete CIT filing within 60 days of termination. Non-resident enterprises that meet the following criteria are exempt from annual filing: • The contract in China lasted less than one year and ended in the middle of a year, and the relevant taxes have been fully settled. • The non-resident enterprise completes deregistration procedures during the annual filing period. • When a non-resident enterprise fails to complete annual filing in time, the tax bureau may charge a penalty worth between 2,000 元 and 10,000元. During this time, the annual tax payable will be confirmed and the company will be advised to settle this amount within a specified period. • Other situations as approved by tax bureau.

The Artful Lodger Lookin' good at China Gongshe The road leading into 'China Gongshe' is the Shinan District Government's new Culture Street, an infusion of zhongguo wenhua into the city's modern downtown. But management has taken the mission in a refreshingly with-it direction. China Gongshe ('China公社'; aka The Hakka; aka China Community Hotel) is certainly striking; a round three-storey building with bright tan wood panelling, surrounded concentrically by a goldfish pond, a parking lot, a conspicuously fashionable block of grey bricks and window panes, and a backdrop of early-90s era residences and the Minjiang Lu cuisine district. Owner/architect Niu Hu Bin and his wife Zhou Ming Rong are no strangers to style; at their Lao Zhuan Cun restaurants along Minjiang Lu, periodical menus are designed so as to incorporate a literary magazine, and are available for customers to buy. A combination restaurant and hotel facility, China Gongshe is their most ambitious project to date. On one hand, the name reflects an idealisation of Chinese culture, taking a set of traditional design elements and artefacts and redeploying them in a

Bo Longke

way that incorporates modern aesthetics and use; thus the the English 'China' in the official Chinese name. Gongshe, or community, is hoped to reflect a commitment to humanity, awareness of unity in diversity across time and space, while incorporating of natural elements in an artful setting. Great concept, but how does it take shape within a hotel? For one thing, it means that looking good is the very nature of the project; style reigns throughout, especially bringing old materials into new uses and bringing the outside in by means of skylights, birds, fish and plants. The contractors had to learn how to make a particularly ancient brand of

parchment so that it could be used as wall panelling in the lobby, to complement the smooth, natural feel of the stonework underfoot. The sinks in each room are contemporary raised bowls, each bearing a unique design. In fact, aesthetic elements like screens, cupboards and wall decorations vary from one room to another, so that no two are the same. Between the total emphasis on looking good, and the price tags on the furniture (yes it's all for sale!) it's a bit like staying in an art gallery. But there are other distinctions between chambers. Their most popular standard rooms (618元/night in peak season; discounts thankfully available) feature cool design, swiveling television and a single queen-size bed or two twins; other rooms are set up to facilitate chatting over tea, or reading quietly under a skylight, or in the case of the two-room loft suites, stargazing (at 1988元/night). They also offer budget rooms for 158元/night. Try it out when you need some inspiration, or send your visitors over for a memorable stay. Dinner and breakfast packages with the also gorgeous adjoining restaurant also available.

New Menus

Tastizione at Murano's

Eric Blocher

A tasting menu is a thing of great expectations, a selection of signature specialities created to satisfy in the broadest and deepest ways that food and beverage can. Course upon course introduces new themes, building into a symphony of flavours and textures; a 'dish' can be admirable or even impressive, but a menu that is at once dynamic and harmonious, exciting and familiar, this is where a chef turns the bedlam of the kitchen into a workshop for high art. After eating my way around Qingdao for years, March 2009 finally brought me to Murano's, which was in fact the first of the city's several terrific Italian restaurants. One can readily accept that Chef Giancarlo is the longest-serving of our local xicai masters, and his commitment to delicious preparations of traditional Italian dishes is unwavering. His current eight-course Tasting Menu is a perfect example of why Italian is the world's most popular international cuisine.

Octopus salad, fried salt cod fillets, marinated anchovies, lobster salad A light beginning to what is sure to become an extended affair; particularly, the zest on the anchovies is a high note that will tickle my tongue repeatedly over the next... seven courses. Sticking with the San Pellegrino for now, the merlot will wait. Balls of mortadella with lemon and black truffle sauce The salty mortadella (a pork sausage flavoured with nutmeg, pistachios and olives) disintegrates over a sea of earthy, aromatic truffle piqued by lemon. Garganelli with mascarpone and smoked bacon The greatest moment in the history of 'fusion' occurred when Marco Polo brought é?˘ to Italy, and pasta was born. Mascarpone is the soft, fluffy cheese typically used tiramisu, and it takes on the flavours of bacon and garlic to delight the palate. Risotto with pecarino and pears A cleansing diversion after the creamy bacon and garlic, the sharp pecorino is balanced with sweet chunks of pear. Grouper rolls with rosemary Not just rosemary; here we see the return of lemon

zest, this time in a sauce of sauteed garlic. These rolls offer a persuasive argument in favour of culinary traditionalism, taking a fish that is at once meaty and light in flavour, and bathing it in a familiar blend that is the very essence of 'savoury'. Australian beef tenderloin over porcini mushrooms with cream, cognac, and black truffle Now, it's time for the merlot. My companion tells me that how you cut your steak says something about the person you are; I cut mine in half and offer her one, she cuts it in half again and accepts. I think she wants to say something, but her mouth is too full of mushrooms and steak to form intelligible words. My eyes glaze over. Sicilian fried roll filled with ricotta served with nougat gelato on marmalade The marmalade provides a citrus-y high note that, scooped up with the pistachio nougat gelato or the delightful ricotta canola, coats the tongue like a cold warm blanket. Now all that's left is the coffee, to be promptly followed by a grappa, and a nap. 888 (+15% service fee) includes everything described above, plus two orders of soup, two glasses of wine, two coffees, and limoncello or grappa.

Qingdao’s Central Business District (CBD) encompasses much of the city’s most valuable real estate, stretching along the coast of Jiaozhou Bay (site of the XXIX Olympic Sailing Regatta in 2008) in either direction from the Municipal Government building and May 4th Square. Hong Kong Road, built in 1997 and named in honour of Hong Kong’s return to Chinese authority in that year, runs through the centre of the area and serves as the major artery of commerce in the city. The following is a list of unsponsored locations to be found in this area:

Qingdao Nocturnal

DJ Flip

Let me guess, you’ve been missing me, right? Don’t worry! Nocturnal is back on track! Last month I visited Bangladesh. Great business, horrible nightlife. At least foreigners can buy alcohol... but it’s twice as expensive and it’s available in only one store in the whole of Dhaka. Still, it was a good trip for a lot of reasons that I can’t freely write about. It’s good to be back! I like that finally the weather is starting to treat us better. With it, there are some rumours flowing around town about some open air parties coming soon. Beijing’s Ziyo will be rocking on the Beach House’s rooftop on 10th of April. There are some plans for a big whole weekend beach party during summer holiday. But about that... yi hou zai shuo. This month Qingdao Nocturnal talked to Le Bang’s DJ Miki. Miki started DJing back in 2002. Back than DJ scene in Qingdao was very poor, not only in DJs but in clubs as well. Miki’s inspiration comes from Q-bert and Mix Master Mike. Beat juggling, scratching and ‘drumming’ were things that he was really into at the time. Then in 2003 he moved to Beijing and spent almost two years gigging around the city. After that he came back to Qingdao to support local Le Bang, right after it had started. In 2006 he left to the Capital once again and started working as a resident DJ in Vick’s, which at the time was well known for Miki’s unique style (mainly Drum’n’Bass). That was the big shift in Miki’s carrer. His main inspiration came from Fatboy Slim, Prodigy and Chemical Brothers. After a year in Beijing he had saved enough money to buy his first groovebox and started producing his own music, developing sets where he was mixing other DJs’ tracks with his own crazy ideas. At the end of 2008 he’d had enough of Qingdao’s DJ scene and decided to open his own DJ school called Mix Spot. The idea was not only to teach, but to show what DJing is all about: “It’s not only beatmaching and playing new music, it’s about passion and connection between the DJ and the crowd, it’s about becoming music while you’re spinning and transforming the music you’re playing into you, so that you can be recognised for your own unique style. It’s hard in Qingdao, because the DJ scene is still developing and bars are asking for a certain kind of music which is usually pop or hip-hop. It’s hard to play from heart, because a lot of times people just don’t understand it. In bigger cities it’s the opposite, the crowd is searching for something new, unique... but I know that it will change sooner or later. You can already notice changes.” This month in Qingdao, follow the GADA posters. GADA is a DJ event featuring local DJ Miki and polish DJ Flip. This is going to be the second time GADA will take place. Besides that, Qingdao Nocturnal wants everyone to come to MAX 09, which will be held at Pichai Yuan on Zhongshan Lu 11 April.
