  1. Great article, Beth! I like that you broke it out into levels as Pinterest can be somewhat overwhelming when you first start pinning. Reading this article really drives home the point that the opportunities to market your brand on Pinterest are endless. So many great ideas…can’t wait to implement them.

  2. CNN:Will the real Shinzo Abe emerge after Diet success? Japan’s most important strategic imperative is forging better ties with China and given his conservative nationalist credentials, Abe is in a good position to build a future oriented relationship. Regarding the territorial dispute with Beijing over the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands, Tokyo’s claim that there is no dispute is a diplomatic dead-end that impedes hammering out a modus vivendi. Its time for confidence building measures, not counterproductive gestures about history; the 2008 agreement for joint development of hydrocarbon resources in the East China Sea that shelves issues of sovereignty could be a useful step forward.
