Viet Nam News So many people are visiting Sơn Đoòng Cave. It has therefore become important to make sure their walking around does not damage the special natural structures, called stalactites, which have taken hundreds of years to form. For that reason, it has been decided that special ladders should be placed in the cave. By climbing and walking on these ladders, visitors have less chance of damaging the stalactites than they would if they were touching them.

At the section of the Great Wall of China that runs through Yulin, tour guide Gao Jing says she tried to learn English in expectation of the increased number of overseas visitors the city planned to attract as part of its economic transformation. But the international tourists haven't come to Yulin, once a coal, oil and natural gas boom town in the northwestern province of Shaanxi, and in their absence she has forgotten her English. "Sure, there's lots of talk about developing our tourism industry but walking the talk is a different matter," said Gao, who's been a tour guide there for 10 years.

A man walks past the Federal Reserve in Washington, December 16, 2015. Confronted with a plunge in its stock markets last year, China's central bank swiftly reached out to the U.S. Federal Reserve, asking it to share its play book for dealing with Wall Street's "Black Monday" crash of 1987. The request came in a July 27 email from a People's Bank of China official with a subject line: "Your urgent assistance is greatly appreciated!" In a message to a senior Fed staffer, the PBOC's New York-based chief representative for the Americas, Song Xiangyan, pointed to the day's 8.5 percent drop in Chinese stocks and said "my Governor would like to draw from your good experience." It is not known whether the PBOC had contacted the Fed to deal with previous incidents of market turmoil. The Chinese central bank and the Fed had no comment when reached by Reuters. In a Reuters analysis last year, Fed insiders, former Fed employees and economists said that there was no official hotline between … [Read more...] about China central bank to Fed: A little help, please?
