News as fast food not a healthy diet [China Daily: US Edition] f

One of our researchers writes about the increase in ‘automated journalism’ - where writer-bots write and post stories automatically. What do you think of this phenomenon? Is it the future of journalism or another example of technology too far?

This summer our Provost Professor Nick Miles will be joining the Vice-Chancellor Professor David Greenaway and 13 other riders on their 4th consecutive Life-Cycle journey to raise money for children’s brain tumour research and treatment.

Worldwide, over 30,000 children each year are diagnosed with cancer of the brain or central nervous system. Funds raised through Life Cycle 4 will enable crucial advances to be made into understanding the cause, nature, treatment and outcomes of childhood brain tumours.

The Life Cycle 4 team this year will ride to all 4 corners of Mainland Britain – covering 1400 miles over 17 days - from Lands’ End along the South Coast to Dover and then all the way to Cape Wrath and then follow the North coast to John O’Groats. Each rider is riding in honour of a child who has batted the disease. Nick is riding in honour of a brain tumour survivor, Wei Boyan, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour at 2.5 years old. Boyan was then successfully treated at Nottingham Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre at the Queen’s Medical Centre, and is now a happy, healthy six-year old.

This cool chair, which doubles as both an adult’s seat and a baby’s high chair, was designed by Qingli Chen and Yuxiang Sun, both third year BEng Product Design and Manufacture students.
And they won a prize for it in the student-designed kitchen furniture section of the 2013 International Design Awards! 
The pair is now hoping to patent the design and create a prototype of the chair, before being able to produce it properly in the future. 
Well done both (how can we get our early orders in?!)!

I use “UNNC spirit” to describe typical UNNC students - we are smart and hardworking, we are curious about the world, we keeping learning and exploring, we believe there’s always a better solution, we dare to change and are always optimistic even when there’s a setback.

Gaoyue (Pink) Wang, one of our graduates from 2010, give a speech recently at a reception hosted by the Chinese Embassy in London, to celebrate our 10th anniversary. 
She said some really lovely things about her time here and we’re pleased to be able to share her speech with you on our website.

I’m now officially a citizen of Ningbo…well in public transport terms anyway.
The local government here has finally made it possible for foreigners to get hold of the ‘Ningbo Citizen Card’, an integrated public transport card that you can use to get discounted rates on the public buses and the new metro, as well as to hire the public bikes that are dotted all over the city.
This is great news because for a long time only those with Chinese ID’s were able to get the cards, effectively meaning Ningbo’s expat community were excluded from using the service.
But no longer, you can now get a card on presentation of your passport! I went to get mine at a service centre in Jiangdong district of Ningbo (I’m afraid I can’t remember the address). There is, however, a place nearer to Nottingham University in Yinzhou at 834 Qian Hu North Road 钱其琛胡北街834号.
To get your card you will need to take along:
Your passport (non-Chinese nationals)
210 RMB deposit (you’ll get this back if you return your card with the collection of receipts they give you)
At least 5 RMB top-up (when you run out of money, you can top-up your card at the service centres around town)
Some phrases that may come in useful while at the service centre include:
Bàn kǎ 办新卡 - apply for a new card
Tuì kǎ 退卡 - cancel a card 
Chōng zhí 充值 - top-up with money 
Guà shī 挂失 - declare a lost card 
The process of getting the card is fairly straight forward and you emerge with your new card in a matter of moments, meaning you can access Ningbo’s ever-improving public transport system much more easily and cheaply. Happy travels! 

Essential information for anyone wanting to get a public transport card here in Ningbo!

As well as Nottingham being here in Ningbo, now there’s a tribute to Ningbo over in Nottingham!
A new bridge, which has been built as part of Nottingham’s tram extension, has been officially named in honour of the relationship between Nottingham and Ningbo.
The steel bowstring bridge, which is 62 metres long and spans the British city’s ring road, was named the Ningbo Friendship Bridge by Councillor Ian Malcolm, Lord Mayor of Nottingham, and Zhang Minghua, Vice Mayor of Ningbo.
