    Hey Justin, welcome aboard and good on you for responding after you posted your question.

    Have you been hanging out at expat bars to get your "facts"?

    A lot of what you have been told is bollocks. I bought a house just like a local. I am the sole owner and i walk down the street holding hand with my wife everyday....nothing happens. I'm not running from anything and I'm certainly...

    You're mixing up a network outright making stories up or at the very least not taking the basic step of fact checking with a news network reporting on a story where the victim/ witnesses happen to be lying.

    Can work, but the office gossip can make some big troubles.

    It depends on the individuals involved. A lot of Chinese men do not want wealthier, more educated or more successful women than themselves. You cannot seem to maintain good relationships with family, friends, co-workers or your boss so I think if you are talking about yourself I should say absolutely no hope at all.

    Hell, why not source the product yourself then set up your own shop/s selling the stuff? Start small and if it sells then expand from there. You might find the companies taking notice of you if you're already selling their products too.

    This is not something I know much about, and I bet the companies involved have their marketing people who do know a lot about it but I think your best bet would be to go to them with your business plan showing how you can get them access to X number of customers, their demographics - income etc and if it looks appealing to them, and they believe you maybe they'd give you a chance.

    So, unfortunately ... you are talking out of your buTT!


    School cannot cancel Contract or Z visa without valid cause!




    Only Contract signed by both parties (sponsoring Co.& foreign employee) entitles School to apply for WP and other docs. required at application for Z visa.


    After Contract is signed by...

    This is the new one, I've ever read about.


    So, what would I do if that would be me:


    1. You signed Contract with School, which is still valid unless in case of 'force majeure' (natural disasters or School ceased to operate).

    There should be a clause in the Contract on how much money you should receive or pay (as penalty), in case either party...

    Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

    You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming....

    If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though.


    I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.

    Treat questions like that and the people who ask them with the contempt they deserve. Just laugh at such unsophisticated bumpkins (xiangbalao tubaozi).

    The fantastic achievement of simultaneously burning so much coal for heating that I can't see the end of the fucking street but said heating being so shit it has made no difference to the temperature of my flat.

    This actually makes sense, if you want to attract foreign students to your university and potential spies, unintended benefit, you need internships in their field of study like most other top universities around the world. Also, if your demographics is hurting your young labor pool, some free interns can fill the void. The only problem with all of this, it is possible for a Chinese...

A:It happened to me, once ... in 2014 or 15 ...Plane from RP city (Tianjin) had more than 10h delay and I came to the HK's exit Luohu some 7 hours after the RP expiration day.In real, I came to the exit crossing just on time or only an hour late, but Luohu is closed overnight (10pm - 6am), which I didn't know.There were two unexpected things happened at that exit: flight's delay with closed Luohu overnight on the topI had a decent and real excuse for the cops next morning, but still I was put in a side office for some 3 or 4h and then cops had a short lecture with '.. and make sure, it will never happened again! ..', and I was let go without anything on my record. At least, at the new Z visa application and following reentry to China nobody ever mentioned anything about the delayed exit. However, I had a bad, un-eased feeling at the following Z visa appearance in Wanchai ...It is much, much wiser and safer to exit at least a day or few ahead of the RP expiration date. -- icnif77
