Source text - English Our surroundings, especially our homes, contribute significantly to our mental and physical well-being. Many people are moving into condominiums that offer conveniences of residential living in heavily urbanized sectors. However the trade-off for this prized convenience is that condominium owners must deal with space and economic limitations. Consequently, to maximize the utility and function of their space, many condos are taking inspiration from European and Asian design.
Design Challenge: Arkyin works as a manager at a leading technology firm in downtown Toronto while Diana works in finance on Bay St. They want a condominium that is close to work, the Asian shopping malls and their families, who live in uptown Toronto.
MintoMidtown, a homebuilder with over 50 years of experience, has launched Quantum2, located at Yonge and Eglinton. Quantum2 also happens to be perfect for Arkyin and Diana as it is a short distance from their respective workplaces; and close to the highway and subway. The proximity to the transportation routes allows the couple quick access to their families and shopping.
Arkyin and Diana asked interior designers Elaine Cecconi and Anna Simone of Cecconi Simone Inc. to come up with a “modern design” for their 720 square foot 1 bedroom plus den condo with a 55 square foot balcony. They stipulated that their home should exhibit the refined sensibility of Japanese culture. This was of particular importance to the couple since they both enjoy Japanese culture, especially its rich history and delightful cuisine.
Design Solution: Drawing inspiration from Japanese architecture and its ideologies, Cecconi Simone then fused it with North American sensibilities to arrive at an innovative design solution. As a result, the solution is provocative, engaging, and multifunctional, as spaces that transform, furniture that moves and converts, and rooms that can shift from formal to informal.
“The feeling that each space gives you is important; here, clean and minimal spaces are personalized by decorations and artifacts, a kind of undertone to the modern world”, Simone advises. Simone also points out that it is important that your furniture, books, clothes and all other decorations provide some insight to your personality, because “Design is about self and how you portray self to the world.”

Source text - English The French referendum on the European Constitution this past May exposed ideological cleavages among the French in their beliefs not only about Europe, but about the very foundations of society and the economy. Behind the critiques directed at the EU as “not being social enough,” lurked an image of the Union as a trap that had forced France to bend to the fateful disciplines of the market, and deprived the nation’s leaders of their ability to realize important social goals. This image was evident not only on the extremes of right and left, and in traditionally nationalist Gaullist circles, but also among most socialist voters, who decided to spurn the party leadership’s pro-European stance.
With the disappearance of the communist world and the failure of its collectivist policies, one would think that this debate had been resolved in favor of the reformist vision. But the surprise of the last few months is that an important part of the Socialist electorate and party leaders back radical change.
Moreover, a substantial portion of the broader anti-liberal left, composed of communists, ecologists, union activists, and adherents of the movement Attac accuse the reformists of subordinating themselves to liberal globalization and advocate, instead, a radical transformation of society and the economy.
One might suspect the influence of French political traditions which, on the right as much as on the left, always prefer purity of principle to messy compromise. Add to this the congenital French mistrust of liberalism – indeed, French is one of the rare languages in which the word “liberalism” has a pejorative connotation – joined to an equally deep-rooted perception of the state (again, on both the right and the left) as the defender of the general interest par excellence. While pragmatism has come to dominate northern Europe’s socialist parties since the 1930’s – and, after the 1957 Congress of Bad Godesberg, the Germany’s Social Democratic Party (SPD) as well – a preference for revolutionary ideology has always prevailed, at least on the rhetorical level, among French socialists.
What is now needed is a more modest debate about how to reconcile the deficiencies of the market with the demands of solidarity. Should the state confine itself to creating an economic environment favorable to private enterprise? How extensively should it contribute to security, education, research, innovation, and protection of the poor?
Translation - Chinese 今年五月，法国公民对欧洲宪法的全民公决暴露出法国人的信念存在意识形态的分化，这种分歧不但与欧洲有关，还与社会和经济基础结构有关。评论谴责欧盟的背后，“不是实行社会化就足够了”，联盟犹如一个圈套强迫法国遵循市场的致命性规则而俯首称臣的形象约隐约现，并剥夺国家首脑实现重大社会目标的能力。这种形象不但明显地根植在右翼和左翼极端份子身上，根植在传统民族主义戴高乐主义支持者的圈子里，在多数社会主义投票者身上也不鲜闻，他们决定摒弃执政党的挺欧洲立场。
Source text - English Every where I walked I could feel history and imagined myself at a different time and place. I loved the villages, the islands, the deserts, the forests and mountains and valleys that I visited. However, the most beautiful aspects of my travels were the wonderful friends that I made all over the world. They shared their stories along with food and drink. We sang together and danced together and told our stories in return. Some faces remain in my memories forever, for they were especially memorable for their sensitivity and generous gifts of the spirit.

Source text - English Tax Planning Considerations
The new Hong Kong – Luxembourg tax treaty definitely creates tax planning opportunities. In particular where Asian investors intend to invest into or through Europe, then the Hong Kong – Luxembourg route can be an interesting option. It should be noted that the common withholding tax on dividends in Luxembourg is 25% - which can be reduced to 0%.
In a diagram, such Hong Kong – Luxembourg investment structure can be outlined as follows:
Luxembourg has a double taxation agreement with China, which is similar to the Hong Kong – China agreement with 5% withholding tax on dividends and absence of Chinese capital gains taxation as long as the shareholding in the Chinese company is less than 25%. Obviously, Luxembourg has a much wider network of double taxation agreements compared to Hong Kong, which Hong Kong now can make (indirectly) use of.

Running with Risk: Maximizing Returns, Creating Unique Competitive Advantage
As intense competition is part of the fabric of business, companies need to identify and harness every possible advantage. 。
In such an environment, judicious risk-taking can allow companies to create profits and improved shareholder value. 。
However, the corporate meltdowns of recent years have highlighted the fact that companies most often do not fully recognize the risks they are taking or manage them well. But a risk-averse business model and the loss of risk-taking zeal can also be a risk in itself.
So how does a company strike the right risk-reward balance and get the competitive benefit of taking risks safely?
The first essential element is developing a comprehensive and accurate understanding of the risks the company is taking. This in turn requires a high-performing risk management organization, which can provide an independent assessment to the CEO and the board.
Next, the CEO and board should also clearly articulate the company’s risk strategy so it can act as a touchstone for all investment decisions.
Finally, the business needs to go beyond formal controls to create a culture where senior managers look at both the risks and rewards of their decisions and are rated on their risk-adjusted performance.
So what is an appropriate risk strategy in the new context of expanded business boundaries and increased vulnerability? What factors do CEOs need to consider as they assess their risk management approach? How important is it to ensure enterprise resilience and the ability to withstand systemic discontinuities? This session will explore the challenges in creating a sustainable risk-reward balance in today’s volatile environment.

Source text - English Lee Kum Kee Recipe: Lemongrass Pork Fillet
For a minority group of people, this winter has been a blessing because the snowfall has been minimal and there have been high temperatures that have reached new records for this time of year. However, most want a ‘white’ Christmas full of fluffy flakes and sparkling snow. The image of snow automatically leads to images of Christmas which celebrates family, presents and most importantly, food.
Many people over the holiday will probably overindulge in food and drinks. It is not uncommon for people to add on ‘winter weight’ or ‘extra insulation’ during this busy and magical time. After all, the month of December is full of holiday parties for work, friends and family. Due to the harsh Canadian winters, many people can justify the extra weight as a means to ‘stay warm’.
Homes are always dressed up to reflect the festive mood of the season. Christmas trees are full of blinking coloured lights and shiny ornaments. Hallways and fireplaces are adorned with stockings, candles and candy canes. The kitchen table is the gathering place to talk with loved ones and friends while enjoying delicious holiday fare. Roast turkey, chicken or beef is a fine holiday favourite, but his year, why not try something different for the main course?
Pork is an excellent alternative to the usually holiday food. Usually, people will steam pork with salty eggs on top or mix it with Chinese vegetables. Pork is also typically found in a stir-fry with vegetables and other ingredients. Finally, wontons are another popular food made with pork.
For this issue, the always creative Chef Joseph Ho has prepared an interesting and sumptuous Christmas dish for us – Lemongrass Pork Fillet. In this issue, Chef Joseph Ho wows us by preparing the pork filet using world famous Lee Kum Kee sauces to cook a tasty dish. We wish everyone a delightful Christmas feast with this appetizing and yummy dish!

Source text - English Micronutrient Deficiency Diseases. In addition to PEM, micronutrient deficiencies play a key role in nutrition-related morbidity and mortality. Following are common micronutrient deficiencies.
• Vitamin A Deficiency (VAD). The most common deficiency syndrome in displaced populations is caused by a lack of vitamin A. Vitamin A deficiency is also known as xerophthalmia. It can cause night blindness in early stages and permanent eye damage and blindness in later stages. Famine-affected and displaced populations often have low levels of dietary vitamin A intake before experiencing famine or displacement, and therefore may have very low vitamin A reserves. Furthermore, the typical rations provided in large-scale relief efforts lack vitamin A, putting these populations at high risk. In addition, some diarrheal diseases rapidly deplete vitamin A stores. Depleted vitamin A stores need to be adequately replenished during recovery from these diseases to prevent the disease from becoming worse. Vitamin A is stored in the liver, and after initial treatment, supplemental doses can be as much as 3 months apart.
• Vitamin C Deficiency (Scurvy). Although scurvy rarely occurs in stable populations in developing countries, many outbreaks have occurred in displaced and famine-affected populations, primarily because of inadequate vitamin C in rations. Scurvy is marked by spongy gums, loosening of the teeth, and a bleeding into the skin and mucous membranes. Fortification of foods with vitamin C is problematic because vitamin C is unstable and cannot be stored in the body. The best solution is to provide a variety of fresh foods either by including them in the general ration or by promoting access to local markets. In addition, local cultivation of vitamin C-containing foods should be encouraged. Patients with clinical scurvy should be treated with 250 mg of oral vitamin C two times a week for 3 weeks.
• Niacin Deficiency (Pellagra). Pellagra is caused by a severe deficiency of biologically available niacin in the diet. It is endemic where people eat a maize-based diet with little protein-rich food. It is marked by dermatitis, gastrointestinal disorders, and central nervous system problems. Treatment of maize flour with lime (which converts niacin into a biologically available form of niacin) and the inclusion of beans, peanuts (ground nuts), or fortified cereals in daily rations increases the total intake of available niacin and will prevent the development of pellagra.
• Anemia. Anemia is caused by a lack of hemoglobin and indicates a lack of iron in the diet. Diets that are lacking in vitamin C or are high in fiber reduce iron absorption. It is marked by a lack of energy. Severe anemia in a displaced population can be a major cause of mortality for young children and pregnant women. Treatment for anemia includes a daily administration of iron/foliate tablets and vitamin C. Supplementary feeding of high-risk groups with corn-soya-milk (CSM) will also help reduce the likelihood of anemia (CSM contains 18 g iron per 100 g).
Thiamine Deficiency (Beriberi). Beriberi is caused by an inability to assimilate thiamine. It occurs where people have to exist on a starchy staple food such as cassava or polished white rice. It is marked by inflammatory or degenerative changes of the nerves, digestive system, and heart. Sources of thiamine include dried peas and beans and whole-grain cereals. One major problem is that thiamine is destroyed during cooking.
