I’ve occasionally heard “Shanghai just doesn’t really make the grade in terms of cultural goings-on” (I think we’re talking about things attractive to Westerners).

Raw food is food that is prepared without using an oven, pots and pans. And the raw diet is modern - especially among those who are devoted to healthy eating.
But actually it is not very healthy to stick to a diet with only food that has not been above 42 degrees, which is a guideline for raw food.
One of the most frustrating parts of a flight are the inevitable queues at security checkpoints. But maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has now unveiled the first prototype of the future security at airports. Besides reducing congestion it should also minimize the number of body searches and of course improve security.
The new system was recently showcased at the 67th IATA Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit in Singapore.
