From the title of this article, you may think I’m a recent fanboy of the new virtual reality (VR) craze,  where users dawn goggles on their head to escape into a virtual world.  But in fact, I’m a jaded optimist,  who’s been waiting for VR to arrive to the mass market for over 20 years.  In 1992, when I was an  undergrad at the University of Washington, I was lucky enough to take courses and do research at the  first academic VR lab in the US, the HIT lab (Human Interface Technology lab), which grew out of R&D from the US mi

You might ask yourself if it is a right choice to keep drinking beer while the outside temperature goes down. The answer is YES! Beer lovers can breathe freely - winter is not a reson for you to stop enjoying the beer. The only advice - go dark. Dark beers taste same good cold or warm. Sitting at home in your cosy chair or hanging out with the friends at the bar - there is nothing better than to feel how beer fills your body with warm.

可能你会问自己:“外面温度越来越低,继续喝啤酒是否有理的选择?”回答就!啤酒爱好者会自由呼吸 - 冬天不是能让你停止喝啤酒的原因。我们只有一个建议 - 选黑啤酒。黑啤酒不管冷或热风味都丰富。没有比感到啤酒让你身体温暖的感觉更好。



A lot of breweries and organizers are holding beer festivals during these chilli days. One might say that there is no fun in that, but we strongly disagree. The beer is flowing and there is usually some kind of heat source for beer lovers to gather around and chat.



If you still hesitate, there is one more interesting th

China’s rapidly expanding economy and vast population has made it one of the world’s most attractive markets for business expansion. Today, more and more foreign individuals and entities want to establish company in China. However, how to start? Is there any limitation or requirement on investor? How much will it cost?.....

In this article Expatree would like to introduce the main issues regarding establishing a wholly foreign owned enterprise (WFOE) in China for entrepreneur's information.

Ⅰ. Documents and information required to apply for a WFOE
-- If the WFOE is invested by a foreign individual:
• Proposed company names in Chinese;
• Passport copy and original passport (if the investor never visit China before, also needs to provide the notarial certificate of his/her passport);
• Bank confirmation letter issued by the investor's foreign personal bank;

-- If the WFOE is invested by a foreign company:
• Proposed company names in Chinese;
A Noble Prize reward meets 200 millions wedding read more

Several weeks ago, 2 events drew amounts of public attention, Tu Youyou, an unknown Chinese medical scientist, received the 2015 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine. She is the first Chinese Nobel laureate in physiology or medicine as well as in natural sciences. Another pair of public figures also drew attention, actor Huang xiaoming and actress Angelababy held their wedding in Shanghai, it was reported that their luxury wedding cost around 200 millions RMB.

Tu can only afford to buy a half of a living room in Beijing by using award amount and only a few media reported this great contribution and historic occasion. It's ironic that a celebrity’s luxury wedding attracted most of the Chinese media at that moment. This is alarming that the population prioritizes a celebrity wedding over a Nobel Prize winner from China.

“Compared to these actor and actress, Tu was being paid what we considered a derisory amount of money.”
