WHAT A MESS: The Chinese city of Nanjing will play host to the Youth Olympic Games in '14. Tourists in Nanjing, a city with a history of 2,500 years, will enjoy a better scenery next year "when the government plans to meet its newly announced environmental goals." The capital of Jingsu province "has presented a massive plan to deal with the city's current environmental problems, such as waste classification, dilapidated buildings and illegal construction." Nanjing officials hope to finish the renovation of dilapidated and old buildings along the main roads, famous scenic spots and areas surrounding the Games' venue before the start of the event (CHINA DAILY, 8/14).
