Tianjin Explosion Update

The first time I posted about the Tianjin explosion, the government wasn’t giving any info. on the cause(s) of the accident.  The death toll rose over 100 and lots of people are injured.  China has also experienced structural problems in the past from contractors who cut corners in terms of regulation.  Moreover, the overall number of accidents, death tolls, and injuries (from accidents) have been declining in China.

In this article from the NY Times, the owner of the warehouses admitted fault to the public, and the government will investigate and punish those who were involved to allow these warehouses to operate when they violated regulations.  You will realize how important social networks are to get you what you want/need in China.  Visit the source to see another image and a graphic!

I began writing Elle's Adventure in China (EACh) in June 2014 as a fun summer project, but as obstacles kept interfering with my plans, I forked and forked more options. I took writing this novel much more seriously in mid-July, and want to have it officially published someday in my lifetime. As many artists put their hearts into their projects, so do I. I did not start out liking to read, but a professor suggested a book for me for homework a few years ago, and it was an amazing book. Since then, I read for pleasure, and I hope my novel, Elle's Adventure in China, does the same for as many of you as possible. The same thing goes to writing. I did not like to write until I took a course where the professor and papers made me love to write. I hope every one of you find what makes you happy and dedicated to work. In May 2015, I started my other blog, Read and Write Here (R&WH), as a place to post other things that aren't China- and Chinese culture-related and not EACh. I share some of my memories and experiences from student teaching, irregular participation in Daily Prompts, etc. I'd like to have regular people and bloggers to write book reviews and post it on R&WH someday. Keep reading and writing!
