'''''Code 46''''' is a 2003 British (United Kingdom) film directed by Michael Winterbottom, with screenplay by Frank Cottrell Boyce. It was produced by BBC Films and Revolution Films. It is a disquieting science fiction love story with themes that explore the moral impacts of advances in biotechnology. The soundtrack was composed by David Holmes (David Holmes (musician)) under the name "Free Association". The film was shot in Dubai, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur and many interiors in London, both for logistic reasons and because the juxtaposition of elements of these cities offered a believable futuristic setting. The main character is William Geld (Tim Robbins), an insurance fraud investigator based in Seattle who is sent to Shanghai to interview employees at a company known as "The Sphinx", which manufactures "covers", ostensibly "insurance cover documents" but which are in fact documents regulating the permissible movements of persons between various domains such as cities and between "inside" and "outside". William's assignment is to identify employees who are suspected of forging and smuggling "covers" . After interviewing numerous Sphinx employees, he identifies a young worker named Maria Gonzalez (Samantha Morton) as the forger and supplier of "covers". He is able to do this by means of a genetically engineered "empathy virus" which allows him to obtain unstated information from people if they voluntarily reveal something about themselves. Maria tells William that she has the same dream (Recurring dream) each birthday: she is traveling the subway (rapid transit) to meet someone she cannot identify. Each birthday she is one station (metro station) closer to her destination, where she expects to meet the person she is looking for. William is captivated by her, and instead of turning her over to security, identifies another employee as the forger. The ''Time Out'' weekly listing magazines for a particular city contains information about events in film, theatre, fashion, literature and all other artistic events happening, as well as eat out and night out sections.

"Regions of Chinese food-styles flavors of cooking." University of Kansas, Kansas Asia Scholars. Accessed June 2011. "Eight Cuisines of China - Shandong & Guangdong." Travel China Guide. Accessed June 2011. These styles are distinctive from one another due to factors such as available resources, climate, geography (Geography of China), history (History of China), cooking techniques and lifestyle. One style may favour the use of lots of garlic and shallots over lots of chilli and spices, while another may favour preparing seafood over other meats and fowl. Jiangsu cuisine favours cooking techniques such as braising and stewing, while Sichuan cuisine employs baking, just to name a few. Hairy crab is a highly sought after local delicacy in Shanghai, as it can be found in lakes within the region.

On the other hand, the streets were largely ruled by the triads (Chinese gangs) during that period, with the triads sometimes battling for control over parts of Shanghai.

Shanghai

'''Shanghai''' is the largest Chinese (China) city by population Located in the Yangtze River Delta in East China, Shanghai sits on the south edge of the mouth of the Yangtze in the middle portion of the Chinese coast. The municipality borders the provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang to the north, south and west, and is bounded to the east by the East China Sea. url http: www.shanghai.gov.cn shanghai node23919 node24059 node24061 userobject22ai36489.html title Geographic Location work Basic Facts publisher Shanghai Municipal Government accessdate 14 September 2011

For centuries a major administrative, shipping, and trading town, Shanghai grew in importance in the 19th century due to European recognition of its favorable port (Port of Shanghai) location and economic potential. The city was one of five (Treaty ports) opened to foreign trade following the British victory over China in the First Opium War while the subsequent 1842 Treaty of Nanking and 1844 Treaty of Whampoa allowed the establishment of the Shanghai International Settlement and the French Concession (Shanghai French Concession). The city then flourished as a center of commerce between east and west, and became the undisputed financial hub of the Asia Pacific in the 1930s. title Shanghai: Global financial center? Aspirations and reality, and implications for Hong Kong url http: www.hkjournal.org PDF 2009_winter 3.pdf author Scott Tong publisher Hong Kong Journal date October 2009 accessdate 17 October 2011 However, with the Communist Party takeover of the mainland in 1949, trade was reoriented to focus on socialist countries, and the city's global influence declined. In the 1990s, the economic reforms (Economic reform in the People's Republic of China) introduced by Deng Xiaoping resulted in an intense re-development of the city, aiding the return of finance and foreign investment to the city.

Shanghai is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple (City God Temple of Shanghai) and Yu Garden as well as the extensive Lujiazui skyline and major museums including the Shanghai Museum and the China Art Museum.
