Happy New Year

Danwei will be quiet for a few days over the New Year.

In the meantime, you can contemplate Xinhua's editorial processes on this page: Supermodel Petra Nemcovas survives tsunami in tree. The story is of courseaccompanied by pictures of young Petra in a bikini, probably scanned from Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue.

You can find better coverage of the tsunami and its aftermath on this page on Wikipedia. Scroll down for links to blogs about the disaster and links to aid agencies that need your shekels.
