Minor Meltdown

As loyal readers may have noticed Stewsnews has been unavailable for a few days. My hosting provider had some down time due to unknown reasons. It looks like things are back up and running, but I am considering switching hosts. In the mean time enjoy this photo of one of the many modes of transportation found on the roads of China.

Workers of the world, unite!

If you follow the news coming out of China these days you know that things here are booming. Money is being made and spent, investments and profits are on everyone’s minds, and business is thriving. While all of this is certainly true the daily operations of this roaring economy are somewhat less clear.

There is certainly an awful lot of construction going on; out with the old and in with the new. Much of the hard labor in eastern China is being done by workers from the more populated provinces. I have read that this amounts to the largest human migration in history, impressive indeed.

On Sunday I wondered around the new campus of the Ocean University of China which is located not too far from my school. The place is being built right under the student’s noses. The workers were kind enough to allow me to take a few pictures. Here are the results.
