R.I.P. Wang Yue: Apathy at its Ugliest

Posted in internet news, youtube shows by Fated Blue on October 22, 2011

If you’ve been keeping up with the news lately, I’m sure you’ve heard Gadhafi being captured, tortured, and then killed. Thus ending the 42 years of tyrant dominance in Libya.

But I’m not gonna blog about that right now. I’m sure you’ve all heard or read the same news over and over again. Instead, let me remind you of a much more grave situation the human civilization is currently being pulled into. Yes, this blog is about the little girl who got ran over twice and ignored in China.

Haven’t heard or seen the news yet? Watch below. But you have to be prepared for graphic scenes. Rather, be prepared to tolerate human apathy at its ugliest.

China steals number 2 spot from Japan. USA will have to pick up the pace.

After three decades of spectacular growth, China passed Japan in the second quarter to become the world’s second-largest economy behind the United States, according to government figures released early Monday.

The milestone, though anticipated for some time, is the most striking evidence yet that China’s ascendance is for real and that the rest of the world will have to reckon with a new economic superpower.

Hello Reimei!

Posted in Random, Special posts by Fated Blue on March 29, 2009

Let me just promote my friend’s website named hello ♥ reimei. Its still quite new, but knowing my friend China, its bound to gain lots of attention and clicks in a matter of months. She’s an expert photographer (I like to say so myself, based on previous works I myself gained interests in). She describes herself as:

the girl with the camera eye

Hello hello, my name is Chai!

My real name is China, I’m nineteen years old, seven at heart.
I reside in a small room which is full of all sorts of odds and ends.
I sometimes get too caught up in my thoughts that I forget what I’m doing.
I dream of becoming a Pokemon trainer and have my own Wobbuffet someday.
I have had the biggest crush on Jason Mraz ever since I was in second year high.
I’ve shaped my own little world to my liking, with the help of Dr. Seuss, Neil Gaiman, and Tim Burton.
Everything I know about photography and editing, I learned through the internet.
I like all things beautiful, and also, beautiful people.
I like music and colors and art.
I like love.

My partners: Reimei (a Canon EOS 400D), lots of coffee, and a very vivid imagination.
I also have 4 film cameras:
a black Vivitar IC100, a Polaroid OneStep600, an orange Fujifilm Instax Mini 20 and a pretty pink Hello Kitty camera.

That’s all you need to know.

Indeed, her passion for photography is, without a doubt, something to be compared to the experts. I am not exaggerating, she has the potential to be a professional in this line of work. I may sound like I am being biased towards her, but no. I wish I was, but since viewing her works, I cannot just say that her work is just something that is bound to be forgettable. 

Please, take a few minutes off to view her works and other sites:

Bangladesh warning on milk powder

Posted in health, health defects, security by Fated Blue on October 17, 2008

The Bangladesh government has advised people not to buy eight foreign brands of milk powder after tests appeared to show traces of the chemical melamine.

Three of the brands were imported from China while the rest came from Denmark, Australia and New Zealand.

Swiss firm Nestle, which makes one of the brands, said its products are safe.

Last month Bangladesh stopped importing products containing milk powder from China, where the deaths of four babies are blamed on melamine in dairy goods.

Milk and other dairy products laced with melamine – apparently to fake a high protein content – have been blamed for the sickness of more than 50,000 children in China.

The industrial chemical, normally used in making plastics and fertiliser, is blamed for causing severe renal problems and kidney stones.

Countries around the world have also withdrawn products containing Chinese milk following the scandal.

‘Further action’

Bangladesh officials say they have advised people not to buy the eight brands “until further notice”.

“It’s a big public health concern and we’ll sit again on Sunday to take further action,” commerce ministry additional secretary Golam Mostakim said.

He said all eight brands had been tested in two other Bangladeshi laboratories but researchers found melamine in only one, a Chinese milk formula.

More tests are to be carried out.

There have been no reports of sickness attributed to melamine in milk powder in Bangladesh, and it is unclear what level of traces of the chemical were discovered in the tests carried out by Dhaka university.

Nestle, which makes one of the powdered milk brands Bangladeshis have been advised not to buy, said that all of its products around the world “are absolutely safe”.

“There are no Nestle products made from milk adulterated with melamine,” a spokesman said.

He said Nestle was seeking clarification from Dhaka University on its test result. He also pointed out that two laboratories outside Bangladesh had tested the same Nestle product and found it to contain no melamine.
