Olympic Plant People and their Makeshift Equipment

There is a cute row of sculpted plant people engaging in various Olympic sports on display near Baishiqiao.  The artists behind the installations must have run out of time or funds by the time they decided to furnish these green creatures with actual sports equipment, to quite an amusing effect:
Hate it when the birdie gets stuck
A green tennis warrior brandishes his weapon






The foliage aims its deadly pipe
The tennis and badminton players each have a ball and birdie respectively dangling sadly by a wire from their rackets.  I'd guess the tennis player is not actually supposed to be holding a tennis racket; he'd look much more comfortable with a kendo sword in his hands.  And I think the rifleman is aiming with something that might have been picked off a construction site across the street.

Relocation

I moved out of my friend Frank's on Wednesday and into a place near Dongzhimen. It's working out really well since a friend happened to be leaving for a month in the Philippines, so I'm paying for his rent for a month and staying in his room. I'm living with a French guy and a Chinese girl. It's a really nice place, it's incredible what you can get when you split the cost with housemates. I took some pictures but I'll have to post them in a few days since I left the USB cable to my camera at Frank's.

Although this isn't quite as close to the center of the city as Frank's, it's still pretty good. We're right on the loop line. It's hard for me to get oriented, since I'm so used to being way out east near the fourth ring, and now I'm right on the second ring, and it's confounding that I have to go east instead of west to get to some of my old haunts. It's almost absurdly luxurious.

I registered with the local police…

Cognitive Dissonance or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Job

Don't let the title fool you, I don't actually love my job.

Nor have I seen Dr. Strangelove.

Nevertheless, it's been such a long time and I wanted to write something about my job.  The reasons I haven't written about it for so long are a mixture of respect for whatever nondisclosure terms might have been lurking in my contract, a fear of seeming disrespectful or disloyal to any potential future employers who might grace the pages of this blog, and mostly, the fact that my company's website is so ridiculously awful and the content is so immensely stupid that it's not even worth the space on this page to point it out.  I was also somewhat concerned that a coworker would stumble upon my site and I would be in trouble, except that a) my coworkers can't really read English, and b) I kind of half want to get fired at this point.  So what merits this special occasion today?  Well, I just happen to be so numbed by the Olympics, the insipid circle-jerk of the media …

Google thinks my China consulting business is a good idea

I was just curious what I could do to boost traffic to my site (Joel Rosen China Consulting), so I did a little keyword search on Google Insights to see what people are searching for when they need a China consultant.  The findings are encouraging:

1. Massachusetts ranks highest for searches on "china consulting," even beating out California.
2. "china consulting" isn't nearly as popular a set of keywords as "china business," but handily beats keyword sets "china market research," "china market entry," and "china advisory".
3. Most popular searches with the "china consulting" keywords are "consulting in china" and "china business consulting" - the latter of which is rising in popularity.


Looks like I may be Jewish after all.
