Mascots for Beijing Olympic Games to Be Unveiled Soon (photos attached)Does any running mate want to join with me as we set up sidewalk press stands to sell "The First" on the streets of Pittsburgh, shoulder to shoulder with the sales guys pushing The Trib PM?
'The First,' a Beijing-based newspaper dedicated to sports and the Olympic Movement, will launch its 'learn 1,000 English Sentences in 1,000 Days' campaign in collaboration with an agency under the Beijing Municipal Government to promote Beijing residents' enthusiasm to learn foreign languages, especially English. From November 12 till the opening of the Beijing Olympic Games on August 8, 2008, the newspaper will carry one frequently-used English sentence every day on its front page.
Beach sign: Keep away from the shark prevention net. (Another excuse to run another of my photos from China.)
