Chagan Lake: A place with countless fish
A widespread greeting in China during the Spring Festival, or the Chinese New Year, is "Wishing you have fish every year"; which means wishing you the best of luck and prosperity every year，as the Chinese character of “fish” is homophonic to the character of “abundance”. Good wishes have become reality in Jilin Province's Chagan Lake, in China's northeast. Millions of tourists have seen the catch from the local winter fishing season, and have been impressed by the "walls of fish" on the frozen lake. In 2008, a single net yielded 168 thousand kilograms of fish, breaking the Guinness World Record. But how can one natural lake yield so much fish? Let's see if Lake Chagan will give up some of its secrets.

Will coffee become a national beverage for China?
Tea or coffee, which one do you prefer? Here in a traditionally tea-drinking country, a growing number of people are pouring coffee into their cups. The rather exotic and middle-class beverage has witnessed double digit growth in demand over recent years along with China's opening-up to the outside world and improvement in people's living standards. In some big cities, going out to drink coffee have even become a daily routine and lifestyle for mostly young people. But all these development was unimaginable some four decades ago when poverty and a rejection of a seemingly Western lifestyle allowed no place for the beverage in ordinary Chinese daily life. So how did Chinese people develop a taste for coffee?

Starfish And Salmon Appear on His Philanthropic Genome Map (Part 2)
The number 127 was a signpost in the career of the former investment banker turned NGO founder Chung To. He’s now the head of the Chi Heng Foundation, the NGO he established in Hong Kong in 1998 with a mere 100 Hong Kong dollars. His decision was driven more by instinct than logic: He had an impulse to help people whose lives were turned upside down by the raging AIDS epidemic. This instinct grew stronger and stronger until, in 2001, he left the world of finance and invested everything he had – money, time, and care – into running Chi Heng. The following year, Chi Heng would rescue its first group of AIDS orphans, 127 in all.
