This week: China accelerates airport building, more snow for the USA & more

Mind you, our twitter feed continued to be maintained throughout the holidays covering some massive stories such as the crazy ice-age conditions in North America or odd ones like the one of the escaping Dachshund from Newark/New Jersey.

This week: Thanksgiving, China’s $1B airport flop, e-ciggies at LHR

Okay, we’re late again. But surely you can forgive us this week after all that Turkey we had to eat. Hang on a minute, you say, aren’t you guys based in Australia?
