2009-11-02 A/H1N1 in China

发帖者 ADuu | 11/02/2009 02:08:00 AM | 0 评论 »

It's reached a point now where China's top leaders have ordered government departments to step up measures to ensure the problem remains in check.  The State Council has said China faces "severe challenges" in preventing and controlling the outbreak of the A/H1N1 influenza strain, which appears to be spreading rapidly in a number of areas in the country.  The State Council has also asked vaccine producers to speed up their production, given that there are limited supplies at present.  Meanwhile, in the United States, the Obama administration has declared a national emergency because of H1N1, admitting that the virus has the potential to overwhelm health officials in communities affected by the virus.  So the underlying question is, what can you do to minimize your risk of contracting the H1N1 virus?  And who is most at risk?

Mourners braved the first winter snow in Beijing Sunday to pay tribute to China's "father of space technology", Qian Xuesen, who died on Saturday. He was 98.

发帖者 ADuu | 10/29/2009 05:32:00 AM | 0 评论 »

Winner of China's biggest lottery prize donated 10 million yuan to charity, according to a press conference held by the provincial Welfare Lottery center on Wednesday.

The unidentified buyer from Anyang city of the central China's Henan Province reaped nearly 360 million yuan (52.7 million U.S.dollars) after buying 44 identical "Double Color Ball" tickets issued by the China Welfare Lottery at a cost of 176 yuan on Oct. 8.

The buyer, "wearing facial mask and sunglass", completed the donation procedures "with ease and composure" at the local Welfare Lottery center at 2:10 p.m. Tuesday, said Li Guangyun, the spokesman of the center.

The buyer said it would pay 600,000 yuan as medical expenditure for a 9-year-old girl with uremia in Fugou county in Henan Province.

The winner told the center that besides donation to the local charity foundation, he would use the money to expand his private business.

The Henan provincal Welfare lottery center said it would establish a fund to conduct more charity activities, and it would also accept supervisions from the society over the use of the fund.

This is the largest amount of donation in China's lottery history.

Sales of the Welfare Lottery, administered by the Ministry of Civil Affairs, hit 60.4 billion yuan (8.88 billion U.S. dollars) in 2008 alone and the sales of all lotteries, including the Welfare and Sports lotteries, are expected to exceed 130 billion yuan this year.


Mother Walks 10 km Every Day for Saving Son

发帖者 ADuu | 10/29/2009 05:29:00 AM | 0 评论 »

Chen Yurong, a 55-year-old mother has walked 10 kilometers every day for 211 days to eliminate her fatty liver and made sure that her liver could be successfully transplanted to her sick son.

According to a report of the Chutian Metropolis Daily, living in the rural area of Wuhan City in central China's Hubei province, Chen's 31-year-old son Ye Haibin was diagnosed with a serious liver disease at 13 years old. Chen took good care of her son for a long time, but Ye's illness took a turn for the worse in recent years. Doctors told Chen that her son needed a liver transplant.

Chen's husband and her daughter-in-law had asked to donate their livers but were rejected by Chen.

"My husband who earned most of the family's income should have a healthy body and my young daughter-in-law has a long way to go." Chen told the Chutian Metropolis Daily. Finally, Chen decided to donate half of her liver to her son.

However, doctors found that Chen was affected with a severe fatty liver which was not suitable for transplantation. Meanwhile, the doctors told Chen that losing weight might eliminate the problem.

Then on February 18 Chen began her weight loss plan at a dam near her home and every day Chen walked ten kilometers in the morning and evening. To reduce weight, Chen only ate a small rice ball as a meal.

"Sometimes I felt that it was endless walking and wanted to give up. But I firmly believe a little longer walking makes the day of the liver transplant nearer. "Chen said.

On September 21, Chen took a medical exam at Tongji Hospital in Wuhan and happily got to know that her fatty liver has been cured.

"It is a miracle! I have never seen a patient eliminate a fatty liver in seven months and it is impossible without exceptional perseverance." Tian De'an, a chief doctor in Tongji Hospital said.

The report noted that after the consultation of doctors, the hospital will confirm whether Chen can donate her liver.

"If I still couldn't donate liver this time, I will continue walking." Chen said.

Dashanbao Nature Reserve is located in the Dashanbao Township of Yunnan Province, southwest China, and is 79 km away from downtown Zhaotong City. Covering 192 square kilometers, it is a state-level nature reserve and an important international wetlands area with an elevation of up to 3300 meters. Hundreds of national first-level protected animals, such as the "black-neck crane", reputed as "the panda of bird species", live here. Thus it becomes a unique destination for sightseeing, photography, scientific study and adventure.

Giant fish 'verges on extinction'

A river giant vanishes
One of the world's largest freshwater fish is on the verge of going extinct.
A three-year quest to find the giant Chinese paddlefish in the Yangtze river failed to sight or catch a single individual.

That means that the fish, which can grow up to 7m long, has not been seen alive for at least six years.

There remains a chance that some escaped the survey and survive, say experts, but without action, the future of the species is bleak.

Two hermits lived in a cave far from civilization. One day a little dog ran past the entrance to the cave.

Six months later one hermit said to the other one, "That was a cute little black dog."

One year later the other hermit said, "It wasn't a black dog; it was a white one."

Eight months later the first hermit jumped up and exclaimed, "If we're going to have this constant bickering, I'm leaving."
