The Chinese government puts the maintenance of social stability as a paramount task. Social unrest, or what is called mass incidents in Chinese, have been increasing. Officially, the number of mass incidents in 1995 was just more than 10,000; by 2006, the number was more than 60,000. The real figure is probably higher. Just last month in Kunming, what appeared as a dispute between unlicensed street vendors and law-enforcement officers, or chengguan in Chinese, escalated into a full-blown rampage by concerned citizens, leaving dozens of people injured and 10 vehicles damaged.

A “pigeon bomb” explosion — suspected to be a terrorist attack — occurred in Shenzhen [...] on the morning of March 31st. A pigeon of unknown origins with a bomb died to it flew to the northwest corner of the News Center Building [信息枢纽大厦] near Futian and suddenly exploded. The bird died a cruel death, but there were no human casualties.

Think of it as a tale of two countries. When it comes to procuring the resources that make industrial societies run, China is now the shopaholic of planet Earth, while the United States is staying at home. Hard-hit by the global recession, the United States has experienced a marked decline in the consumption of oil and other key industrial materials. Not so China. With the recession's crippling effects expected to linger in the US for many years, analysts foresee a slow recovery when it comes to resource consumption. Not so China.

At least 51 miners have survived the underground coal mine explosion that left at least eight dead and one injured in central China's Henan Province Wednesday.

Henan Governor Guo Gengmao said Thursday mine manager Wang Guozheng has not been contactable since the gas explosion occurred at 7:20 p.m. Wednesday in the mine operated by Guomin Mining Co., Ltd. in Yichuan County, Luoyang City.

At least eight have died and it was estimated that 27 others may be still trapped underground, said a spokesman with the rescue headquarters.

China has finished the construction of a tunnel under the Amur River to accommodate an extension of a pipeline intended to pump millions of tons of Russian oil to the energy-hungry country every year, the Xinhua news agency said Thursday.

More than 80 Chinese workers have been involved in the drilling of a 1,900-meter tunnel on the Russian-Chinese border since September last year, Xinhua said.

A flurry of recent diplomacy has centered on the United States' drive to have a further round of United Nations sanctions slapped on Iran over its nuclear program on concern that it might not be solely for peaceful purposes; something Tehran consistently denies.

The most magnificent gesture, according to a report in the UK's Telegraph newspaper on February 28 [1], was made by Tehran:

Seeking to undermine [sanctions] efforts, Iran on Sunday presented Russia with two rare Persian leopards - a gift personally solicited by Vladimir Putin, the Russian prime minister.
