I believe the issue about Baidu launching a news service is more complicated than it was made to seem in this story:

Baidu to give Google run for money.

I would want to stress that a license to publish news does not make you heir apparent of all news readers currently using Google News. And news written in China must have some of the most stringent restrictions on it, so what are Baidu users getting that is not found elsewhere on paper?

I also learn Chinese language by a special and innovative service in Beijing Chinese School. I like to learn in live class with teachers from Beijing directly. I also like to practice Chinese with volunteers freely everyday. Watching Chinese learning TV on CLTV is also interesting and helpful to practice listening and learn more about Chinese culture.

I would like to suggest a stock it trades around 3.00 dollars under the symbol PFSW. The company is engaged in procurement of services related to the internet. I believe that the stock could get to 30.00 dollars a share over the next five years.
