The designs in this post are made by a Chinese designer living in Germany, Yang Liu and I got hold of them from Lonnie’s post. He in turn got them from Adino Chang‘s post. These pictures were part of an art exhibition held in Germany in June 2007. The picture captions are in very tiny writing on the top left hand side, and I have mentioned some of these.

I found these pictures brilliant, as they explain the differences between the East and West in a way that words never could. Although Yang Liu orginally made them to show the differences between Germany (where she lives) and China, Germany could easily be the West and China could represent the East. At times I have used the term West instead of Germany and East instead of China, but this may not necessarily be so. Quite a few of the pictures used to represent China could represent the Indian way of life pretty well.

Mal Fairclough/AP - In a photo from Sept. 21, 2012 , Kim Kardashian, left, is surrounded by her fans who are attempting to have their photographs taken with her as she leaves a radio station in Melbourne, Australia.


There is a time in every man’s day when his Facebook feed spits out a photo of a friend who has turned a smartphone camera on him or herself. There is the practiced tilt of the head, to avoid additional chins. There is the palm tree or infinity pool in the background, to record momentary privilege. There is the artfully arranged cleavage, or the casually flexed triceps, to establish oneself as fit, desirable, deserving of exhibition in the carousel museum of social media.

GETTYSBURG, Pa. In solemnity, thousands gathered on a central Pennsylvania battlefield park Tuesday to honor a speech given 150 years ago that President Abraham Lincoln predicted would not be long remembered.


The inspirational and famously short Gettysburg Address was praised for reinvigorating national ideals of freedom, liberty and justice amid a Civil War that had torn the country into pieces.

HANOI, November 14, 2011 – According to Open Doors 2011, the annual report on international academic mobility published by the Institute of International Education, with support from the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State, the number of Vietnamese students enrolled in U.S. institutions of higher education 2010/11 increased from 13,112 to 14,888, a 14 percent increase.  Vietnam now ranks 8th among the leading countries of origin, up from 20th five years ago.

The Government of New Zealand announced a package of new policy initiatives this week designed to make New Zealand a more attractive study destination for international students.

Tertiary Education, Skills, and Employment Minister Steven Joyce and Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse together introduced several changes to visa requirements to make it easier for visiting students to work during their studies, strengthen quality standards for education providers, and enable streamlined visa processing via an interesting partnership with education providers. The changes will take effect in January 2014.
