Drought in China Incurs more than RMB 600 mln in Losses?

Question by onlyonce: Drought in China Incurs more than RMB 600 mln in Losses?
(China Knowledge, Aug 17, 2006) – A serious drought has created direct economic losses of over RMB 400 million and RMB 246 million in Sichuan and Chongqing respectively, according to a Xinhua report on Saturday.
Xinhua also reported that the drought, which is the worst in 50 years, has affected more than 1.3 million hectares of farming land. Many farmers in Sichuan and Chongqing have lost their entire corps, which have withered from the lack of water and the intense heat.
The Yangtze River in Chongqing was also hit by the drought, with its water level dipping by a 20-year low of 4.12 m in July.
More than 10 million people in Sichuan and Chongqing face a shortage of drinking water. Sichuan plans to create artificial rain for its 12 cities, while Chongqing is tapping ground water and improving water conservation facilities.

Is a brand name beach cruiser that much better than one from Walmart?

Question by kkwongusc: Is a brand name beach cruiser that much better than one from Walmart?
I want to get a beach cruiser and have been looking at brand name ones like Electra, Nirve etc. I noticed that they have beach cruisers at Walmart which appeared very similar and weighed about the same. Heck they’re all made in China. I was just wondering whether the name brand ones are necessarily better at 2-3 times the price of the Walmart cheepies. This especially since I’m using it for flat pavement cruising.

Answer by awaken_now
Go for the Walmart version.
The pavement makes it an easy choice.
Get the extended warranty if available and be smart with the rust protection.
