[Adv.] 17th International Conference--Beijing, China
I wanted to take a couple of minutes to mention our partnership this year with the The 17th International Exhibition
and Conference for the Pulp/Paper and Forestry Industries to be held in Beijing in September. If you do business in China, you won't want to miss this conference. Alternating between Beijing and Shanghai, I had the opportunity to attend several years ago and found it quite impressive.

Answer to last week's riddle: To start, flip both hourglasses over and put the egg in the water. When the four minute hourglass runs out, flip it back over immediately. When the seven minute hourglass runs out, flip that back over immediately too. One minute later, the four minute hourglass will run out again. At this point, flip the seven minute hourglass back over. The seven minute hourglass had only been running for a minute, so when it is flipped over again it will only run for a minute more before running out. When it does, exactly nine minutes will have passed, and the egg is done.
Last week's riddle asked: "You want to cook a 9-minute egg, but your only timing devices are a 4-minute hour glass and a 7-minute hour glass. How can you properly time the egg and get the egg on the table as soon as possible?"
This week's riddle: Coy is in an East Coast state. He calls Bubba, in a West Coast state, and asks what time it is there. After hearing Bubba's response, Coy (correctly) replies, "That’s funny it's the same time here." Explain.
