Telecom Executives to Explore the Trends Impacting Broadband in China at Triple Play Conference

Over the past few years the number of broadband subscribers in China has increased exponentially. According to the Ministry of Information Industry, there are 122 million users towards the end of 2007. But due to a low penetration rate, there is still plenty room for expansion. While this may come as good news to the nation’s telecom operators, growing the business is not without its challenges. Telecom operators not only need to struggle with having to lower costs but also develop enticing services to attract new subscribers and reduce churn. Another major goal is to devise a business model for such services to make a profit and find ways around the existing barriers.

UFC 81, Super Bowl XLII and a Hair Raising Bet

I'm a huge UFC fan and who doesn't love the Super Bowl right, so this weekend is going to be a great one. Saturday night UFC 81 takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. This event has lots of hype around it because of Brock Lesnar's debut in the UFC. He'll be matched up against Frank Mir who's current 10-3 record isn't anything to overlook. However, in previous fights Mir has looked sluggish and at times out of shape after coming back from a motorcycle wreck back in 2004.

I could see this fight going two different ways both of which will be on the ground. Either Lesnar will ground and pound Mir into a pulp, or Mir will submit Lesnar with a submission hold while on his back. That being said it's not even the main event of the evening! There is still Tim Sylvia vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira as the headline fight. I have a feeling Antonio Nogueira will win this match up, but then again I've never been a fan of Tim Sylvia.

No matter what fights I win or lose money on, I'm sure it'll be a blast at our UFC 81 party.

Now on to Sunday and early pre-game shenanigans. I'm sure the grills will be fired up from 11am till just before game time. Giving me and friends plenty of time to gorge on all the super bowl snack goodness. I'm going to have to go with the Patriots in this Super Bowl. However, I'll be putting a cash bet on the Giants to not lose by more than 12 points and hopefully keep it exciting.

I've got a friend who's a big Giants fan and he's already laid down this years side bet. If the Patriots lose, I'll be buzzing my head (with the largest attachment of course). That being said might I remind you how cold it is in Nebraska at this time of year! If the Patriots win he'll be returning the favor, so either way one of us is getting a new haircut in February.

Who are you picking to win in the UFC 81 fights?
Who you are picking to win the Super Bowl?

Let us know!
