Eight months after police officers apprehended 27 year old Zhou for stabbing a French expat three times on Hai Chang Jie in the Shekou Sub-District of Nanshan District in Shenzhen, China, the attacker is set free.

The restaurant owner told local media that Zhou was upset because he had been denied a job after showing up drunk on his first day.

on 04/27/2017 - 05:52 pm

While attending an event last Wednesday at The Terrace in Sea World I had the pleasure of bumping into Sven-Göran Eriksson, a Swedish football manager and former player, who is currently the manager of China League One side Shenzhen Football Club (FC).
According to the BBC, "Eriksson has won eighteen trophies with a variety of league clubs in Sweden, Portugal and Italy, between 1979 and 2000, and became the first manager to win league-and-cup doubles in three countries. He later managed the national teams of England, Mexico and the Ivory Coast, as well as three clubs in England."
