匈牙利的阿帕德小學（Árpád Vezér Általános Iskola）座落於匈牙利第二大首都--黛布勒森（Debrecen），阿帕德的校園離黛布勒森大學只有十分鐘的路程，除了主要科目外，學校也有如大學的選課模式，採訪過程中協助翻譯的英文老師說：「藉由這樣的選課方式才能讓孩子找出自己的興趣，不要將他們綁得緊緊的，讓孩子們學習自己思考，或與家人討論，」這是學校最大的期望！

SMALL WORLD: State of Uncertainty
Taiwan's Rachel Chen came back to PSU for her graduate degree
By ANDREW NASH The Morning Sun
Name: Rachael Chen
PITTSBURG —The status of Taiwan is difficult to explain.
In a way, the country is not a country and the nation is not a nation.
In 1949, Chiang Kai-shek and the then-government of China fled communist rule and attempted to claim sovereignty over mainland China.
The communists took control of China proper and claims control over Taiwan. In fact, to this day the communist government considers the Taiwan government illegitimate.
The United States does not have formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan, and officials have stated that the U.S. neither supports Taiwanese independence Taiwan natives like Rachel Chen said that the modern view of Taiwan depends on who you ask.

Giant Gift: Tuan Tuan and Yuan Yuan settle in at their new home at the Taipei Zoo. The giant pandas, a gift to Taiwan from China, have names that combine to spell "reunion." (Pool photo)
By Calum MacLeod USA TODAY
BEIJING — A pair of pandas at the Taipei Zoo go on public display for the first time today to celebrate the Chinese New Year. And they're the cuddliest sign of warmer diplomatic ties between China and Taiwan.
The pandas were a gift from China and have names that combine to spell "reunion." They were a symbolic gesture to Taiwan's president, who was elected last year urging more economic ties while promising not to push independence for the self-ruled island.
Last month, daily direct flights began for the first time from Beijing to Taipei. In November, the rival governments agreed to open shipping and postal routes that had been blocked for six decades.

'A real departure for first ladies'
By Maria Puente and Olivia Barker, USA TODAY
WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama, an unprecedented first lady, made some unprecedented choices for her Inauguration Day apparel Tuesday, announcing herself as a self-confident style-setter willing to defy expectations.
She picked unexpected silhouettes, unusual colors and non-celebrity designers Jason Wu and Isabel Toledo.
Unlike most recent first ladies, she didn't release pictures or descriptions of her inaugural clothes in advance, apparently because she didn't make up her mind until the last moment.
By contrast, President Obama's clothes Tuesday provided no surprises: He wore a navy-blue business suit and white shirt with a red tie under a black overcoat with a flag pin. He wore a Hart Schaffner Marx tuxedo to the Inaugural Balls.
But all fashion-conscious eyes were on Michelle Obama. When she appeared at the first ball, around 8:30 p.m. ET, she was wearing a white, one-shoulder chiffon gown with a fitted bodice and covered with fluffy appliqués and beading, set off by sparkly shoulder-sweeping earrings.
"In her elegant gown, (she) sent out a message loud and clear: She is a refreshing dichotomy of change and tradition," said Joe Zee, creative director of Elle magazine.

↑China gave pandas Tuan Tuan (above) and Yuan Yuan to Taiwan as part of what some say is a unification agenda.
Taipei, Taiwan —- Legislative aides from Taiwan’s pro-independence opposition donned panda suits Wednesday, part of a public relations effort by anti-China lawmakers to paint the mainland’s panda gift as a stalking horse for its pro-unification agenda.
The anti-panda offensive from the Democratic Progressive Party came a day after two pandas —- Tuan Tuan and Yuan Yuan —- arrived at the Taipei zoo after a three hour-flight from China’s Sichuan province. The pandas will go on display in late January and are expected to be greeted by thousands of enthusiastic spectators.

Chinese pandas arrive in Taiwan
By Puteri Sabira Associated Press
Landing rivets island as Beijing intensifies its efforts to warm relations and pave the way for eventual reunification with the Communist mainland.
Taipei, Taiwan —- Two Chinese pandas whose combined names mean “reunion” arrived in Taiwan on Tuesday, the latest installment in a Beijing charm offensive aimed at convincing the island’s people to embrace their Communist rival.
A male panda, “Tuan Tuan,” and his female companion, “Yuan Yuan,” set down at the Taipei airport after a three-hour flight from southwestern China, as millions of Taiwanese watched spellbound on local television.
Chinese pandas are usually loaned abroad in pairs, with hopes that they will mate.
