An old story from 'White House' :)
Hu Jintao / Condoleezza Rice / Kofi Annan / Yassir Arafat

Playwright Jim Sherman wrote this after Hu Jintao was named chief of the Communist
Party in China. (We take you now to the Oval Office.)

George: Condi! Nice to see you. What's happening?
Condi : Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China.
George: Great. Lay it on me.
Condi : Hu is the new leader of China.
George: That's what I want to know.
Condi : That's what I'm telling you.
George: That's what I'm asking you. Who is the new leader of China?
Condi : Yes.
George: I mean the fellow's name.
Condi : Hu.
George: The guy in China.
Condi : Hu.
George: The new leader of China.
Condi : Hu.
George: The Chinaman!
Condi : Hu is leading China.
George: Now whaddya' asking me for?
Condi : I'm telling you Hu is leading China.
George: Well, I'm asking you. Who is leading China?
Condi : That's the man's name.
George: That's who's name?
Condi : Yes.
George: Will you or will you not tell me the name of the new leader of China?
Condi : Yes, sir.
George: Yassir? Yassir Arafat is in China? I thought he was in the Middle East.
Condi : That's correct.
George: Then who is in China?
Condi : Yes, sir.
George: Yassir is in China?
Condi : No, sir.
George: Then who is?
Condi : Yes, sir.
George: Yassir?
Condi : No, sir.
George: Look, Condi. I need to know the name of the new leader of China. Get me the
Secretary General of the U.N. on the phone.
Condi : Kofi?
George: No, thanks.
Condi : You want Kofi?
George: No.
Condi : You don't want Kofi.
George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk. And then get me the U.N.
Condi : Yes, sir.
George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.
Condi : Kofi?
George: Milk! Will you please make the call?
Condi : And call who?
George: Who is the guy at the U.N?
Condi : Hu is the guy in China.
George: Will you stay out of China?!
Condi : Yes, sir.
George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the U.N.
Condi : Kofi.
George: All right! With cream and two sugars. Now get on the phone.
(Condi picks up the phone.)
Condi : Rice, here.
George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls, too. Maybe we should send some
to the guy in China. And the Middle East. Can you get Chinese food in the Middle East?

Blockchain technology is getting increasingly embraced by large scale companies: tranio . com ; it's especially surprising coming from conservative markets such as the real estate one, where investments are sometimes calculated in half centuries.
Convince me you are not a spammer.
I'm not a spammer because spammers don't come back on the forums they infested... although sorry for the commercial oriented link, it's just that I've recentlyu completed a huge report on these and thus had such articles hammered into my brain back then.

I've gotten better now, and what's on my mind is now that the cat is hacking up huge hairballs and hell if I know what I can do to help her.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banqiao_Dam
Construction of the Banqiao dam began in April 1951 on the Ru River with the help of Soviet consultants as part of a project to control flooding and provide electrical power generation.
The construction was a response to severe flooding in the Huai River Basin in 1949 and 1950.
The dam was completed in June 1952.
Because of the absence of hydrology data, the design standard was lower than usual.
.....
1975 Banqiao Dam flood :
2005 ...it has been reported that 90,000 - 230,000 people were killed as a result of the dam breaking.
