Greetings from Shanghai, a note from Nate Yang

August 24, 2011Duke Law News

My time in Shanghai is going well so far. Even though I have 4
hours of language classes a day, I enjoy every moment; it is a great
feeling when the vocabulary and characters that I learn come in handy
during conversation, shopping, or finding a lost raincoat.

Last Friday (August 5th) I attended the Duke Law Alumni dinner--it was a wonderful event. I was able to meet Dean and Professor Horowitz, as well as many alumni. I am looking forward to next week's basketball game when the Blue Devils play the Chinese Olympic team here in Shanghai.

    A forlorn, largely vacant shopping center on 10 acres of asphalt in central Durham seems like an unlikely place for innovation. But Ann Woodward, executive director of the nonprofit Scrap Exchange, imagines transforming this site into a creative reuse arts district (the “RAD”).  This district, an inventive mix of nonprofits, cooperatives and for-profit companies, would not only ensure that the Lakewood Shopping Center becomes a profitable asset, but would also be the catalyst for the revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood.
