COMRADE LANGUAGE: In Sickness and In Health
If you've been here for more than a day, you've probably noticed that Beijing isn't exactly the most sanitary city in the world. It's as dry as a bone most of the year, the air is polluted and full of dust and the water is only barely potable (after it's been boiled for half a day).

ASK AYI: Ayi's Zany Chinese Zodiac
Hey Ayi, I left Hollywood to get away from New Age ninnies, so why do people keep asking me what my sign is? Why are Chinese people so starstruck, and how does Chinese astrology work?

CULTURE SCENE: Boyz 'N the Hutong: Hip-Hop in Beijing
Hip-hop speaks to Beijing street kids as it did to urban American youth 20 years ago. "Most of the rap I can't understand, but I have friends who tell me what the lyrics mean. The words become very personal to me," says Beijing rap/hip-hop promoter Wu Yi.

BEST BITES: Hearty Healthy Winter Fare
Hearty Healthy Winter Fare "Ginger is good for warming the stomach and achieving optimal body temperature. It is especially effective for Beijing's cold and dry climate."

IN SHORT ... Translations From the Chinese Press
