I would rather dream Vancouver than Hong Kong. With its beautiful weather conditions and natural atmosphere, Vancouver is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Hong Kong, on the other hand, is a booming center for industry and business that suffers from high urbanization and pollution. It is this extreme difference in both climate and scenery that makes Vancouver seem like a pleasant dream, compared to the nightmare that is Hong Kong. The mountainous forests and proximity to the Pacific Coast make Vancouvers atmosphere one of relaxation and leisure. Skiing, hiking and camping are just some of the many activities that the mountains resorts of Whistler and Cypress offer. T ...

Communism In Hong Kong - 968 words
Why would a communist country want to have a capitalist country? Well I think it is because Hong Kong has a lot of money, because they are one of the major trade centers of the world. Another reason is that Hong Kong was a part of China until 1842 when the British defeated China in the first Opium War and took possession of Hong Kong. In this report I will be talking about how the Communist Chinese government regained possession of Hong Kong, a capitalist Colony, after 156 years of British rule. I also will be talking about the history and living conditions of the people of Hong Kong. I will be discussing the Hong Kong government before and after the take over.

Early on in the year of 1877, Rodin was accused of being an imposter. The Salon claimed that he had taken a statue and just molded right over it with new material. When Rodin found out what he was being accused of, he rushed to the press and had pictures taken to prove that he was not an imposter, and to prove that the sculpture was not exactly like the human body. Finally, the Salon concluded that it was not the same thing and Rodin said, "I have learned how to use it [bronze casting]." Rodin returned to Paris in late1877, when a death occurred in th ...

In 1986, Tony Wang was Vice President of the Southeast Asia division of KFC. He had an opportunity of bringing the world's largest chicken restaurant company into the world's largest populated country. Wang was an experienced entrepreneur and had been working for KFC for seven years. No other fast food companies were currently operating in the People's Republic, so Wang did not have anything to go by and nothing to help him evaluate the attractiveness of the Chinese market. The main downsides of operating in China were huge demand on managerial resources and the low prospects of significant hard currency repatriation. The first decision that Wang was faced with was where to open the location ...

Tellingly, du Pont's chairman attributed the company's negotiations of "as many as 28 new projects in China" to the fact "that the country's financial changes, improved infrastructure and rising disposable income has encouraged the company to expand its business activities" (Du Pont" pg. 23).

When Japan defeated China in 1895, European powers answered with an order they called, carving up the Chinese melon.

These spheres of interest involved holding leases for all railway and public advantages in different regions of China.

Baraka - 531 words
Modern culture encourages mass production including the commercialization of animals and poeple. In the film Baraka, the effects of mass production and commercialization are contrasted in serene nature scenes and other scenes from today's busiest industrial cities. First of all, mass production is the manufacturing of goods in large quantities. Baraka shows several examples of this, the most memorable one takes place at a poultry factory in Hong Kong. The assembly line of baby chicks being tossed around as their wings are clipped and beaks are burned is painful to watch. The blank, almost cold expression on each of the workers faces who handle the innocent, baby chicks is disturbing. This sc ...

Spanishamerican War - 1,328 words
Most may think that the Spanish-American War was a war between the Americans and the Spanish. Most are right, but only to a point, because the Spanish-American War also included wars between the Americans and the Filipinos, as well as between the Americans and Puerto-Ricans. Reasons for these wars occurring are obvious to the history connoisseur, but to the normal individual, they may not be so distinct. America has been a country of great power for years, and that power has come not only from years of hard work and fighting, but also from years of audacity. About one hundred fifty years ago, the United States began sending armed forces to foreign countries in an effort to attain each indivi ...
