Back when I was in middle school, someone showed me a video about china. They said that China has such a high population that, if you are told that you are one in a million in china, there may be as many as thirteen thousand other people just like you. this got my attention to say the least. They continued to say that the top two percent of the smartest kids in school in China was equal to the number of students total in America . China is huge and they are only getting bigger. We see this everyday in the growing number of imported products. They are not just growing in number, however, but in wealth as well. Some estimate that China will have a larger GDP than the U.S. in less than twenty years. Knowing these things, I would consider myself irresponsible if I didn't increase my knowledge of China, and I feel that this program is my best opportunity to do so. This program is exactly what I need to learn more about the "dragon of the east" and as a business major, I believe that this will greatly lend to my understanding of international relations in business. The world is only becoming more and more internatinal, and strong international experience is the most important thing that I could give myself to maintain a competitve edge in the future job market. Diversity is also a huge consideration. A person that can expand the horizons of their mind is more capable of looking at problems in new ways, better at recognizing possible threats, and overall more equipped to handle a larger variety of situations than a person who has not been exposed to those experiences. If I am going to do business with China, which given the facts seems to be a very safe assumption, I want more

Under the Australian Sun
By Gregory Kaskaniotis
There I was waking up that dreadful morning that changed my life forever. Opening my eyes slowly and letting them adapt to that hot and rustic looking Australian sun. I had then gradually opened my lungs and I slowly, slowly in-hailed that country fresh air. As I looked off into the distance I could see lovely green lushes trees and far of behind it I could see a line of crystal clear blue water as far as the eye could see. Looking, smelling and feeling…

”Prohibition… goes beyond the reason in that it attemps to control a man’s appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes… A prohibition law strikes a low at the very principles upon which our government was founded.” (Abraham Lincoln, 1840).
