GOOGLE'S Android mobile operating system already powers many of the digital gizmos people carry in their pockets. Now it wants a bigger slice of the people-carrier market, too.

I enjoyed reading this article because of the question it raised at the end, "Why bother with a dedicated on-board infotainment system when there is one already in your pocket?" I personally think an Android car is useless. A car should only be used for transportation, and with more gadgets in car, it could become very distracting for a driver, which would cause more car accidents in my opinion. An Android car is cool, yes, but definitely not needed in China or the world.

It is amazing that "the purpose [of this event] is to coordinate areas of mutual interest between the two nations" that have ongoing political heat surrounding controversy such as "fair trade." Politics is a tricky subject, especially in issues like this. Therefore, your article, Rooney, makes me side with author John Campbell and former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher: "'We are not in politics to ignore people's worries,' she [Thatcher] declared, 'we are in politics to deal with them...'" (Campbell 99). It is only our hope that this -- and any -- administration that occupies the White House will continue talks like these with other countries and "deal" with all forms of problems.

Not only is China and the United States gather for transportation, they also gather in respect to cleaner energy, in which I researched for my focus topic. In my articles, although China is pushing for cleaner energy and sources, the US still has an advantage in actually getting revenue due to the changing of sources. Like this article, both are trying to improve each other to become the best country it can be.

THE working world was much cosier in 1980. Just 1.7 billion people were picking up a pay packet a generation ago, nearly half on farms. Globalisation has since upended labour markets.

I liked how this article talked about how our world, both in China, India and the US, are in need of educated workers, but education is not being provided to the people.

I thoroughly enjoyed this article because it talked about the different global economies and how hour labor sources and markets are connected with each other.

Rooney, your article mention a joint statement on how "[China and Thailand] will strengthen cooperation in the areas of agriculture, science and technology, ocean and environmental protection, clean energy, water resource management, flood and disaster prevention and post-disaster reconstruction, and tourism." I am interested in seeing how these two countries will be able to complete such a task with the cooperation of the China City Complex and ASEAN–China Free Trade Area -- mainly in the areas of tourism.

In the article it states "The joint statement also said the two countries will strengthen cooperation in the areas of agriculture, science and technology, ocean and environmental protection, clean energy, water resource management, flood and disaster prevention and post-disaster reconstruction, and tourism." This made me think of my topic of energy. The fact that this new usage of transportation will cut down on China (and Thailand's) Energy usage clearly shows to me that China is doing all it can to move into a cleaner energy system that they've been billing up to do this past year.

While the 2012 Hawai‘i mayoral candidates declared that they would ether support or neglect the rail and transit-oriented development project in a "Hawaii News Now" "Campaign 2012 State of the City" debate, it is our only hope that HART will learn from Shanghai's "embarrassment" and push forward -- or end -- this project with absolute safety for its riders.
Aimee Nagao's comment, June 15, 2012 10:59 PM
This is an unfortunate accident to happen in China. To improve the system of metros, the Chinese government must first figure out each system of the metros, and coordinate it in a way where they won't crash. I'd have to say though, that the people in charge of these metros didn't fully look at the dangers that could have happened, ultimetly causing the crash.
