  13. 13. China Inner Mongolia party chief seeks to soothe anger over herder death May 30, 2011 THE top political leader of China's vast northern region of Inner Mongolia had a meeting with local students in a bid to placate public anger, state media reported, after the hit-and-run death of a herder sparked six days of protests by ethnic Mongolians.
  14. 14. China's grip on Xinjiang Muslims The young men studying at the Islam College in Urumqi, near China's western border, sit ramrod straight listening intently to their teacher. Most hope one day to become imams in the many mosques of the Muslim- dominated Chinese region of Xinjiang. …China's war on terror is concentrated on Xinjiang. The province borders eight separate countries. Foreign fighters, including members of the Taliban, have been captured here. …Northern Xinjiang is rich and fertile, and it has oil. But Uighurs enjoy little of its riches, especially since China has flooded the province with Han Chinese. In 1950 Uighurs were 94% of the population - they are now less than half.
  15. 15. Now let’s see what you have learned about China’s peeps, climates, vegetation...and maybe even from the wider region....

And the communist government, which once despised such displays of wealth, is counting on a new middle class to help it succeed.
