New Zealand will simplify the visa process for Chinese nationals by opening a joint immigration and tourism office in Shanghai following China's demand for easy Visa services.

Ramadan comes to a close as Muslims all over celebrate Eid-Al-Fitr.
 
 
Muslims all around the world are preparing to mark the end of the holy month, Ramadan, with the festival of Eid-al-Fitr.
 
Ramadan is the most significant month on the Islamic calendar, which is centerd around the cycles of the moon. This year it started 1 August and lasts for 29-30 days, depending on the sighting of the moon. It commemorates the handing down of the contents of the holy book, the Qur'an, to the Prophet Mohammed about 1400 years ago.
 
During the festival of Eid al-Fitr, Muslims dress in their finest clothes, adorn their homes with lights and decorations, give treats to children, and enjoy visits with friends and family.

Beauty Pageants have long been a femaleís event since the early days so it very rare to find male pageants. Although male pageants were rare they still existed in the earlier days with the focus on body building, however, since the 1990s male pageants have shifted its focus from muscle mass, masculinity and looks to the contestantís talent, intellect, physique and how well the contestant presents himself to the world.
 
Male pageants are now becoming collectively accepted and have succeeded in getting attention from global audiences everywhere, so hopefully one day male pageants can catch up with well established female pageants such as Miss Universe and Miss World.

More information is available from Mr World 2011.
