GOOD FOR HER, MUST KEEP STANDARDS HIGH
"The average waiting time for leather belts is about 1 month. 2-5 months for wildlife knives, kitchen tools, timber framing tools, drawknives and froes. 2-3 months for Longbows."

demands a constant supply of glucose — primarily obtained from recently eaten carbohydrates (fruits, vegetables, grains etc.). ... The brain needs Goldilocks portions of energy: not too much, not too little. ... The glycemic index ranks foods according to how they affect blood glucose levels. Pretzels are high on the index, because they cause blood sugar to rise very quickly. Raw carrots, by comparison, have a low glycemic ranking. ... "Despite broad similarities, food affects everyone's brain a little differently." .. THAT'S THE TRICKY BIT, IT'S A HIGHLY COMPLEX, INDIVIDUAL SYSTEM
He added: "After 36 hours of sleep deprivation it's like being drunk, 72 hours and paranoia sets in, Day Four the mind goes into hallucinations and you're dreaming while awake.
"The problem is there's no way to know how to offset brain damage or to train for this because there isn't sufficient research. I believe the first guy's mistake was not being in great physical condition. Also he used stimulants to keep awake, which I assume did him in."
HE WAS A MESS WHEN HE EMERGED FROM THE BLOCK OF ICE IN NYC ... SAID HE'D NEVER GET SLEEP DEPRIVED AGAIN (guess he changed his mind)
NASTY BIZ TURNS TRAGIC ... IF THIS GUY WIGDAL RESPONSIBLE FOR HITTING HER, THEN HE NEEDS TO BE TRIED FOR MURDER ...
"Volunteers said he was informed immediately about her death, but none would reveal how he knew or who told him, nor what his reaction to her death was."
ALL THOSE LOATHSOME EVANGELICAL ENABLERS NEED TO BE DRIVEN OUT (IF THEY'RE FOREIGNERS)
"Reports from 163.com last night state that Wigdal was interviewed by police on Sunday. Beijing Police released no further information on the matter, including whether or not they had detained him."
CRAZY. CHINESE PRESS TRYING TO PUT THE HEAT ON.
YES HE WAS A PUNK BUT AN AMBITIOUS ONE

FOUND IT ...
"They're all the service people in the city," she says. "They're your waitresses, store clerks, interior designers, tech workers, who just can't afford a place in the city."
AND MASSEUSES ... PROFESSOR SIM'S "RAT TRIBE"
"everything that they put out in their rooms gets a bit moldy, because it's just very damp and dank underground"
YES, IT'S A DISTINCT SMELL ... YOU CAN QUICKLY TELL WHEN YOU'RE ABOVE GROUND WHO LIVES UNDERGROUND
LUCKY TO HAVE FANGCAODI AVAILABLE TO US
TWEETS DISAPPEAR IN LESS THAN TWO HOURS THOUGH
"没有履行相关手续" ... "希望警方的介入，能让这些疑问水落石出" ... WHERE WERE THEY FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS?
SHE WAS BEARISH ON QIHOO ...
" Her disenchantment arises from the stark inequality of wealth and opportunity, the thuggishness of the Communist elite, and the amount of chicanery and accounting fraud engaged in by Chinese companies and government organs."
DOESN'T MEANT THE GROWTH ISN'T REAL
"The country is now submerged by the tsunami of bad debt"
"China is a cheap place to live if one is willing to eat rice, cabbage, and pork, but it’s expensive as all get out once you factor in the cost of decent housing, a car, and health care."
SHE'S RIGHT ABOUT THAT
"There’s even an outside possibility that China’s economic miracle could end up in a fiery crash landing"
I DON'T SEE IT BUT IT'S A GOOD WAY TO ATTRACT CONSULTING CLIENTS
"If one has the ability to own a house in Sydney over an apartment in suburban Shenzhen, the choice is obvious."
CHOICE MADE LONG AGO
"Many Chinese regard apartments as capital-gains machines rather than sources of shelter."
NAH, MORE LIKE STORES OF VALUE
"Xi openly disdains Western democratic values."
HE DID SEND HIS DAUGHTER TO HARVARD THOUGH
"The intent is not moral purification by the Xi administration but instead the elimination of political enemies and other claimants to the economy’s spoils."
WELL, IT'S MAYBE BOTH THAT AND A GENUINE ATTEMPT TO CHANGE THINGS, WE'RE NOT REALLY SURE
WE HAVE A BLACK JING A PLATE WITH SOME 8'S IN IT ... CAN'T SELL OR TRANSFER IT ... BIT OF A WASTE WHEN WE LEAVE
WHAT IS VOCATIV?
Direct trading between the Chinese and South Korean currencies began on Monday, with traders and government
officials in Seoul saying transactions were more active than expected.
China's State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) had approved a total of 298.4 billion yuan Renminbi
Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (RQFII) quota to 93 entities as of Nov 28, the regulator said on Friday.
The Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury of Hong Kong, K C Chan, started his week-long visit in Europe
on Dec. 1 to boost bilateral relations between Hong Kong and Europe and to promote the former British colony as the
world's premium offshore Renminbi hub.
ASIFMA and Thomson Reuters launched a white paper on Tuesday, examining the implications of, and outlook for,
the recently launched Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect scheme.
"at rest, the brain consumes about 25% of your circulating glucose, despite constituting only about 3% of your body weight"
" during a tough self-control task, circulating glucose levels plummet, consumed by hardworking frontal neurons. And, remarkably, self-control improves if subjects sip sugary drinks during the task"
"Subjects indicated their level of anger through the number of pins they’d put into a voodoo doll representing their spouse."
" the effect of low blood glucose on willpower and judgment fits into a larger story about how stress has the same bad effects (and disrupts frontal cortical function) when it comes to violent behavior as well. The largest lesson is that who we are and what we do must always be considered in the context of the biology occurring inside us."
YEP BUT IT'S AN INCREDIBLY COMPLEX SYSTEM, HARD TO GAME
"a pungent, turnip-like vegetable called maca" ... CHINESE DEMAND CHANGES EVERYTHING FOR EVERYTHING
LOT OF THOSE ON THE MAINLAND TOO
