Of course that rural condition by itself is not a cause of suicide. That graph is manipulative.It most been done to attract more cheap labour to cities. Come meet happiness...
Agrarian societies tend to be stacked in favour of men, and Chinese rural women have had their share of misery.
Here's a British program on another Chinese tribe.
I'm tired of millionaires, wherever they come from they're all equal.
You are an amazing person.
How many millionaires have you met to make you tired of them? I've met one, and that was only once. I'm not tired of him. Hell, it was only once, so how can one become tired of having met one millionaire once.
A series of suspected gas explosions that shook Greater Kaohsiung from late Thursday night to early yesterday morning claimed at least 26 lives and injured 269 people.The blasts tore through the city's roads and dug a 100m trench up to 1.8m deep. At least 1.5km of roadways were damaged.Cars and fire trucks were trapped and overturned in the rubble. Vehicles were hurled through the air, landing on the roofs of houses. Flames erupted from manholes after their covers were blasted off, with gouts of fire reaching 15 stories high.
No construction anywhere can withstand the force of a large gas explosion.
I also like the amount of buildings that's tries to compete with the Pisa Tower.
Highways through houses also seems to me an original and creative concept.
Can't find the image of a highway that goes through a hole in the middle of a house....
Iirc those images are from the PRC, not the ROC.
We (at least Frenzie and me) had this discussion in one of the better threads in old D&D. The construction is actually impressively good. Given the stress the building was exposed to, it has held up quite well. The foundation work, or the lack of it, by the developer is a wholly different story.
As was the case in China. In 2010 the developer got life in prison and confiscation of personal property, as did the second largest shareholder and government official. Four others got 3-5 years.
I wait for the day we have here a Chinese...
The Portuguese had established a management culture of violent domination and abuse in India. However, this did not go down well with Brazilian locals, who captured and ate their Portuguese 'owners' in complex ceremonies.
Hong Kong frets about lagging behind whenever our neighbours roll out eye-catching policies or take steps different from ours. That explains why a request by the Macau government for more land on the mainland island of Hengqin for development immediately fuelled calls for the city to follow suit. The suggestion may sound far-fetched for the conventional-minded, but it triggers reflection on our development strategies and competitiveness.The two cities share similarities. Both have moved from being colonial outposts of Western powers to modern cities with special autonomy under Chinese rule. Cross-border integration in both places is growing, as is the social tension it causes. Yet the two are different, not just in terms of size, population and strengths. The different socio-political situations mean the two governments have different priorities.Prompted by a fast-expanding economy, tiny Macau has come up with the novel idea of spilling some of its facilities and commerce onto the neighbouring island, over which it has no jurisdiction. This includes paying HK$1.2 billion to rent a square kilometre of the island for 40 years for an extension of the University of Macau. A request for more land for development has already been made to Beijing.
