Edgar: How come you're drinking Coke? Didn't you tell me that you wanted to lose weight?
Zoe: Easy. This is Diet Coke, which allows me to drink what I want and still keep fit. It's like killing two birds with one stone!
Edgar: Just don't drink too much soda. According to a news report I read in the China Post, drinking more than one soda a day may result in metabolic problems -- even if it's sugar-free.

    Kengo Kubo, a sales consultant who sells Lexus cars in Tokyo, has a special way of opening a car door. He points with all five fingers to the handle, right hand followed by left. Then, he gracefully opens the door with both hands, in the same way Japanese samurais in the 14th century would have opened a sliding screen door.
    "The most important thing is to make the motion look beautiful," says Mr. Kubo, standing in a gleaming Lexus show room with live orchids growing out of trickling waterfalls.
    The screen-door technique is part of an unusual tactic under way in Japan's luxury-car wars. No. 1 car maker Toyota, behind in the luxury market, wants to fight back by plunging deep into the world of ancient Japanese hospitality traditions.

    Intel Corp., in reporting a 44% jump in second-quarter profit, signaled strong demand for chips and progress in improving the company's financial position.
    But Intel's profit margins came in below its forecast, suggesting that a long-running battle with rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc. continues to put pressure on chip prices. Intel's stock, which had run up recently on signs of improving sales, slid 4.8% in after-hours trading following the announcement.
    Intel is the dominant maker of chips that serve as calculating engines in computers, and its pronouncements are an important proxy for global technology demand. The Santa Clara, Calif., company, which lost ground to AMD between 2003 and mid-2006, launched a counterattack in the past year and regained markets share with some new products.

Pedro: Yum, yum. These "baozi" are so delicious!
Dena: Did you just say "baozi"? I believe you'll want to know this: according to a story I read in the China Post, some vendors in Beijing use chopped cardboard as the stuffing in their baozi! They use an industrial chemical to soften the cardboard, mix it with fatty pork, and season it.
Pedro: That's terrible! These people shouldn't be so selfish, even if this is an easy way to make a lot of money.
