To answer your questions: >>how much will it cost me for an apartment? food, transportation and other necessities for a female. - If you're on a budget you will be able to find an apartment for less than 1000 rmb. I know some Filipinas who are sharing apartments too, and they pay 500 rmb a month (there are lots of filipinas in Shanghai so in many cases there are special rates if you are able to find some of these apartments). But if you're willing to spend a lot more, there are all types of accommodation to choose from. Expect 1600-2000 rmb per month as soon as you get here though, that's the easiest to find if you are on a budget. Consider spending one month living on campus. It will give you enough time to make friends and find a good budget apartment outside campus. >>I still think which school I will choose. Fudan University, Jiao Tong and Shanghai. can you give me some hints on each of the schools? If there is a filipino who studies there ill really appreciate your help... how much does the semester cost? and other school things? - Studying Mandarin in these universities can be quite expensive but it's worth it. But for Fudan, here's the list of courses and costs: http://iso.fudan.edu.cn/downloads/2010sf... . I know there are lots of International students out there but I just want to ask if i will not find hard time in dealing with them.. i love to meet new friends across the globe. But 1 big thing on me is I don't speak much of mandarin. I am studying online lessons but I think it is still hard for me.. can you help me guys... foreigners out there can you give me your experiences..??? please help.?? - Most foreigners come to Shanghai unable to speak Mandarin. So you have nothing to worry about because you'll find so many people on the same boat as you. In fact, many foreigners live in Shanghai for so many years and don't bother learning Mandarin. So it's possible to go around the city without being able to speak the language. Since you speak English, many locals will want to befriend you. So it really opens up a lot opportunities for you. >>and lastly.. Is it possible for me to work there as a Radiologic Technologist? can I apply on the hospitals there even I'm not yet a good in their language? how much id the minimum salary??? sorry for too many questions.. xie xie!! zia jian...:-) - If you have 0 years work experience since you'll be graduating this year, I would have to say it will probably be a bit too early for you to be considered. You won't necessarily need to know Mandarin (there are many doctors and specialists who don't speak Mandarin) but you will need to have many years of experience. Many Filipinas living in Shanghai eventually leave their field of work and choose to do other things. If you want to continue living in Shanghai after your Mandarin course you could always choose to do something else like teaching English (lots of money in this). But this won't be so easy because no matter where you are in China, when it comes to job positions white people are prioritized.

Sybald Originally Answered: How would it cost me to travel from Boston to China?
Round-trip economy class airfare is roughly $2,000. Plan on spending $100 per day for 3-star accommodations and $200 per day for 4-star. Domestic travel within China, shopping, and other expenses should be added to the total. If you can't even plan a business trip to China, then how are you capable of conducting business activity once arriving in China?

Ok, prices vary. As a filipino you could get a full-time univeristy teaching job. Though most likely in a smaller city. Then you can pay students 20-30 RMB an hour to teach you Chinese. This is actually the cheapest option. On the other hand you come on a student visa, and work I think up to 16 hours a week (or is it 10). So students can work and earn some money on the side. Many places are desperate for teachers, especially children's teachers who can speak a little chinese. Shanghai is expensive. In a bigger city you would expect to spend at least 2000 RMB a month on an apartment. Depending on how you lived, 1000-3000 RMB a month on living expenses. At school you might spend 3-4 RMB for lunch and dinner. If you go out a lot you will spend more money. School costs vary. The cheapest school that I have seen was 25 RMB an hour to join a class.

I think you would love it here, speaking from experience when i came here i spoke no mandarin, but as i was living in an international dormitory i could still communicate with other people in either English or French. You would find a lot of Filipinos here, as a matter of fact there are like 4 Filipinos in my class and i have met a lot more, so don't worry about the language, but it would be a bit difficult at first, since taxi drivers or salespeople can't speak English, so you'd have to find another way to pass on the message, on the other hand you can use public transportation (Subway and Bus), instructions are both in English and Mandarin, it took me 6 months to be able to have a conversation in Mandarin, i mean a back and forth conversation, but it can take you less or more time, depending on how much interest and time you put in it. It won't be hard for you to deal with other international students, you are all in the same boat.

Shanghai is just a famous international metropolis pulling more and more interest from throughout the earth; therefore see what this town is offering with hotelbye . Shanghai is a favorite vacation location for visitors. In Shanghai you can see the marvelous Yu Garden (Yù Yuán), also referred to as the Garden of Happiness. This Garden addresses an area of more than 20,000 square yards and includes an external and an internal garden. The oldest part is the Outer Garden with further improvements being produced in the 18th century when Sansui Tang, the park's principal corridor, was added. The newer and much smaller Inner Garden times from 1709 and contains characteristics normal of a conventional Chinese writer's Garden: beautiful little pavilions, ornamental stones, and miniature pile stages, dividing surfaces and little wetlands, and a highly furnished theatrical stage.

Gaige Originally Answered: death penalty cost vs. life without parole cost?
The death penalty does cost more than life in prison. Here are some of the reasons: With the stakes so high, the legal process is far more complex than for any other kind of criminal case. The largest costs come at the pre-trial and trial stages. The tremendous expenses in a death penalty case apply whether or not the defendant is convicted, let alone sentenced to death. Examples- trial costs (death penalty and non death penalty cases, California): People v. Scott Peterson, Death Penalty Trial $3.2 Million Total People v. Rex Allen Krebs Death Penalty Trial $2.8 Million Total People v. Cary Stayner, Death Penalty Trial $2.368 Million Total People v. Robert Wigley, Non-Death Penalty Trial $454,000 Total This data is for cases where the best records have been kept. Some factors: • more pre-trial time will be needed to prepare: cases typically take a year to come to trial • more pre-trial motions filed and answered • more experts will be hired • twice as many attorneys will be appointed for the defense, and a comparable team for the prosecution • jurors must be individually quizzed on their views about the death penalty, and they are more likely to be sequestered • two trials instead of one will be conducted: one for guilt and one for punishment • the trial will be longer: a cost study at Duke University estimated that death penalty trials take 3 to 5 times longer than typical murder trials The numbers vary from state to state, but they all point in the same direction. From a fairly typical state study of the costs of the death penalty: “The study counted death penalty case costs through to execution and found that the median death penalty case costs $1.26 million. Non-death penalty cases were counted through to the end of incarceration and were found to have a median cost of $740,000. For death penalty cases, the pre-trial and trial level expenses were the most expensive part, 49% of the total cost. The investigation costs for death-sentence cases were about 3 times greater than for non-death cases. The trial costs for death cases were about 16 times greater than for non-death cases ($508,000 for death case; $32,000 for non-death case).” (Kansas: Performance Audit Report: Costs Incurred for Death Penalty Cases: A K-GOAL Audit of the Department of Corrections) As for discouraging crime, homicide rates are higher in states with the death penalty than in states without it. The most recent FBI data confirms this. For people without a conscience, fear of being caught is the best deterrent. The worst thing about the death penalty system is that human beings make mistakes. There is no doubt that people have been sentenced to death for crimes they didn't commit. As forensics improve, we can decrease the risks but we can't guarantee we won't execute an innocent person. It comes down to whether we should keep the death penalty for retribution or revenge in spite of its flaws and in spite of the huge toll it exacts on society.
