Look at how big the bread pieces that my Little Boy was giving the ducks. It's because the smaller pieces don't go far. Even then, the ducks are not eating them as the bread were too close to the bank and to us.
SHANGHAI has opened a new terminal at its domestic airport as China's second-largest city geared up to welcome tens of millions of visitors to the Expo 2010.
The government has spent $2.2 billion on the makeover of Hongqiao Airport, 35 minutes west of the city centre, and made it part of an ultramodern travel hub linking metro and high-speed rail.
"An airport with the size of a world-class hub has taken shape, which will provide a high-quality aviation service for the World Expo," an airport authority statement said.
The first flight from Hongqiao's new terminal - four times bigger than the cramped old facility - took off early Tuesday for Beijing.
Pudong Airport is Shanghai's main airport for international flights while Hongqiao is used mainly by domestic airlines.
Officials expect the vast majority of the Expo's 70-100 million visitors to come from within China.
Built inside the grounds of a zoo in Getorff, Germany, the house has an upside-down kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom.
The 23ft-tall (seven metres) home was built by carpenter Gerhard Mordhorst and his colleagues Gesellse Splettstober and Manfred Kolax.
They described the project as one of the “craziest” they’ve ever been asked to do.
Steel plates and screws were used to hold the furniture in place.
Putting the bathroom together was the trickiest part due to bulky items such as the shower.
Simon Baker, the boy from Tassie who grew up in a country town just south of Byron Bay, has come a long way since he won the Most Popular New Talent Logie for his work on E Street in 1993. The star of the hit show The Mentalist and films such as The Devil Wears Prada - and winner of TV Guide’s Sexiest Man Alive award - opens up to GQ about feeling like an impostor despite the decade of dues-paying hard slog he put in before ascending to the upper echelons of the entertainment industry. It’s a very un-American humility that’s Baker’s retained despite having been based in Hollywood for the last decade and a half. “We’re Australian,” he notes. “It’s not like we go: ‘You’re awesome!’ Aussies go: ‘You’ve done alright, but don’t get a big head.’”
Simon also shares his thoughts on everything from the importance of courtesy (“Don’t ever ignore people. If someone smiles at you, smile back”) to settling your nerves before a big speech (“Drink vodka instead of beer. Beer makes you fart”).
