Ruth Vahle, founder of the Beijing Expat Guide, gives us some advice for coming to Beijing, tells us what US television programs are most popular in Beijing, and describes why Beijing is a very safe city. All of this and more when Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes to you from Beijing, China.
This week on Travel Today with Peter Greenberg we come to you from Beijing, China. Forget the typical guided tour—Beijing is where Peter goes (often in a sidecar) to get lost in zigzagging hutongs, to explore seven world heritage sites (including the Great Wall and the Forbidden City), to sample Peking Duck, and to ride the fastest train in the world.
Lee Williamson, Editor of Time Out Beijing, talks about the Great Leap Forward and Caroline Killmer, managing editor of City Weekend, tells us where to find the best non-Chinese Asian food. All of this and more on this episode of Travel Today with Peter Greenberg.
Stephanie Neppl and Pete Ziebron preview this week's quarterfinals from Beijing while also reviewing Venus Williams' title last week in Wuhan. Join Steph and Pete on Passing Shots on the ProTenn Radio Network.

Bennet Pomerantz talks to media guests on the Betty Award winning ANYTHING GOES. His guest tonight is author Talia Carner
Talia Carner was the publisher of Savvy Woman magazine. A former adjunct professor at the Long Island University School of Management and a marketing consultant to Fortune 500 companies, she was also a volunteer counselor and lecturer for the Small Business Administration and a member of United States Information Agency’s (USIA) missions to Russia. She participated in the 1995 International Women’s Conference in Beijing, where she sat on economic panels and helped develop political campaigns for Indian and African women. Ms. Carner’s first novel, PUPPET CHILD, was listed in “The Top 10 Favorite First Novels 2002” and launched a nationwide legislation–The Protective Parent Reform Act–which became the platform for two State Senatorial candidates. CHINA DOLL made Amazon’s bestsellers list and served as the platform for Ms. Carner’s presentation at the U.N. in 2007 about infanticide in China—the first ever in U.N. history. Her latest published novel, JERUSALEM MAIDEN, (HarperCollins, 2011,) won the Forward National Literature Award in the “historical fiction” category. In June 2015, HarperCollins will release Carner’s newest novel, HOTEL MOSCOW, which tells the riveting story of the daughter of Holocaust survivors who travels to Russia shortly after the fall of communism. Over 50 of Carner’s award-winning short stories, articles, and personal essays have appeared in anthologies, literary magazines, and leading websites.
Talia Carner’s addictions include chocolate, ballet, hats—and social justice.

Join us, Friday 15 January 2016 at 9 p.m. EST on Carson's Corner With the Election Boycott Advocates as we host a special panel analysis and rebuttal of President Barack Obama's final State of the Union address. Among Obama's boasts and claims were:
"...the United States of America, right now, has the strongest, most durable economy in the world. We’re in the middle of the longest streak of private-sector job creation in history. "Anyone claiming that America’s economy is in decline is peddling fiction. What is true – and the reason that a lot of Americans feel anxious – is that the economy has been changing in profound ways, changes that started long before the Great Recession hit and haven’t let up."
"The United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. Period. It’s not even close. We spend more on our military than the next eight nations combined. Our troops are the finest fighting force in the history of the world. No nation dares to attack us or our allies because they know that’s the path to ruin. Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than when I was elected to this office, and when it comes to every important international issue, people of the world do not look to Beijing or Moscow to lead – they call us."
"The Middle East is going through a transformation that will play out for a generation, rooted in conflicts that date back millennia. Economic headwinds blow from a Chinese economy in transition. Even as their economy contracts, Russia is pouring resources to prop up Ukraine and Syria – states they see slipping away from their orbit."
Our panel of speakers will confront these lies with the facts and shead light on Obama's dark agenda of imperialist war abroad and capitalist violation of workers' rights at home.
Join us tonight January 6, 2016, at 8:00 pm

City of Beijing Builds Museum Dedicated Entirely to the Life of Stephon Marbury
WOULD THIS HONOR EVER HAPPENED TO MARBURY IN AMERICA?
I WILL TOUCH ON THE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS AND EXTEND TO SATURDAYS SHOW.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE SENSITIVE TO HOLIDAYS, LISTENER DISCERTION IS ADVISED.
After experiencing much trauma in my past through abuse of many kinds, my life finally came to halt when I walked into my first Christian Church (Living Word Christian Center) and weeks later was water baptized, totally delivered from my drug addiction and filled with the Holy Ghost, with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. Immediately, God called me to become a minister. I served in Living Word Christian Center under Dr. Bill Winston till Spring 2002.
In 2002 God sent me away to study for the ministry at World Harvest Church in Columbus Ohio, under Rod Parsley's Breakthrough ministry. Being an orphan, I had no money at the time, so Dr. Winston paid all my books, tuition and rent for the entire program.
I graduated in 2003 and worked on staff at World Harvest Church until I was fully ordained in 2005. World Harvest Church is where I hold my credentials till today. Since 1998 I have been in ministry and have ministered in 12 different countries, lived in 2 foreign countries, most recently here in Beijing where I am the Senior Pastor of All Nations International Fellowship. We are also doing missions in Laos, and Mongolia aiming in nations and ethnic groups where Christ has never been named.
Over the last 5 years, I have attended Ohio Christian University and studied Business Administration. My wife and I founded Nations Abroad LLC., which is the premier ESL Job provider in China. My wifes company has been featured in China Daily as well as China Radio International and is managed by my wife, who is the mother of my two bouncing baby boys.
Our Church is powerfully impacting non-Christian people, seeing Atheists, Shamanists, buddhists and Muslims alike find the love of God in Christ Jesus. The vision God gave me at ANIF is this: Every Nation, Every Embassy, Every University. And I believe that 2015 is a year of mighty Harvest in Beijing.
Deck The Halls, Jingle Bells, O Come All Ye Faithful, The Christmas Tree, and Santa Claus….all familiar songs, symbols and characters of Christianity and the holiday season. As we anticipate the great birth of Jesus Christ, his amazing manger birth to a Virgin Mother and God The Father, it’s the time of year that brings excitement and joy to Christians AND non-Christians throughout the world.
On today’s show we’ll explore those familiar holiday songs, symbols and characters to determine their origins that in some cases date back to the days BEFORE the birth of Christ. We’ll learn about the different customs and traditions from 8 different countries to see how Jesus is celebrated throughout the world.
And from my family to yours…I wish you holiday blessings regardless of your nationality, race, political ideology or faith. Christmas is for EVERYBODY and this is a special Christmas edition of Focus on Empowerment from Boston to Beijing to Brazil!!
