    Hello everyone, Mr. Tye here affraid .

    This is how this works. Every 2 weeks, you are expected to post a link to an article pertaining to an article topic from the last 2 weeks.

    Remember, one 1 every 2 weeks! If you want to do more, feel free to do so!

    From there, I want you to write your ideas about/explain the article. Who What When Where Why How etc...

    Also, tell me if you think this article was well written, and if it held your attention.

    Here are some news sources you can use rabbit -

    http://bbc.co.uk
    http://news.google.com/
    http://edition.cnn.com/
    http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/
    http://drudgereport.com/
    http://news.yahoo.com/

    Here is my example

    Name goes here : Mr. Tye

    Link goes here : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-14597550

    Your ideas/summary goes here :

    On August 11, an act of senseless violence occurred at an American university, that may have damaged the athletic diplomacy between the two nations of China, and America.

    Previous incidents of violence by Chinese basketball teams playing overseas teams + rampant sports corruption in China + the need for a Chinese victory at any cost = trouble. A post game analyses revealed that the Chinese referee blew the whistle for a foul at American players 3 times more often for the same type of infraction.

    Whether or not this gives light to how things are run in China, the fundamental idea that sports link our world together seems to be untrue. The way sports are viewed in communist societies are that of pure competition. If the team loses, the country loses face. In individualistic societies, like America, a team loss does not signify the loss of the nation.

    I think that this unfortunate mishap is no way to smooth out Chinese and American relations. At this point, it doesn't matter who did what, but a brawl like this cannot be tolerated in this day and age of strengthening China-USA ties.
