A still of the Port of Tianjin.

 

In order to establish the co-ordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the Tianjin Municipality and Hebei Province have set up a port corporation alliance to optimise distribution and integrate sea transport resources.

 
Li Zengjun, chairman of the Bohai Sea Tianjin-Hebei Port Investment and Development Co said that with a registered capital of US$325.4 million, it will be engaged in investment and development of ports in Tianjin and Hebei on the Bohai Sea.

Eight of the world’s largest ports for cargo transport volume are located on the Bohai Sea, with a total cargo transport volume of three billion tonnes last year.

Li said: "The new corporation has ended the lose-lose competition between the two port groups, and will seek coordinated development for the Bohai Sea area."

The Bohai Sea is part of the Yellow Sea on the coast of Northeast and North China.

howdy partners , its charles of the literal pacific north west . shaved off the beard at the barber shop five feet from my pad for two bucks . what a deal . I have given up using words and now do all my communicating with hand gestures and facial expressions and the odd grunt or two . soon I will be communicating through interpretive dance . wont be leaving campus again for a month or two . the school will pay my peeps , who will then pay me , through a cash transfer to my china construction bank atm card . so my pay check will be when I withdraw cash and get a reciept with my balance . dont know when I get paid or if my reciept will have my balance . what money I have left will go twords points on my food card and soap and water and maybe beer . injured pinky playing conga so wont be playing conga for a few days . I can play conga without my pinky , but I digress . there are dozens of ways to slap that thing around . love my conga . I thought it was a bongo until arnel set me straight . arnel wants to practice more than he wants to make music videos . I have two lap tops , one has a vpn so I can facebook and youtube . one gets wi fi . in other words , one of my lap tops does not get wi fi and the other does not get vpn . I think this is all part of china\'s war on windows 8 . I digress again . so , let me tell y\'all bout me day today . a good day . started off at breakfast , then off to the subway . when Im on the subway , after a few stops I always get up to let an older lady sit down , and some guy always sits down and the old lady has to keep standing up . I actually take up two seats on the subway so usually when I get up two people sit down . chinese women like to wear black and white stripes . I came to this conclusion while looking at five different chinese women in different black and white stripe outfits . going to have to digress a third time . so I get off the subway and onto this three wheel go cart taxi thing . I point the direction , east , into the sun , and we are off . by now I expect the mad max thunder dome nascar style and laugh at all the near death experiences . this guy would have broken 20 laws in the usa but here it is all legit and just the way they drive . dude is weaving between busses , going the wrong way , missing pedestians by inches , looking at me , Im pointing straight or left . finally dude pulls over , the way I want to go is to clogged . its cool , Im almost there . when chinese people are rude to you , its a test . if your rude back or just laugh , you pass the test . any other reaction your just a freak and are dismissed . so I walk over the bridge where they sell turtles and just think , one day Im going to upgrade to a bigger turtle . my second destination is in sight . the eye of tianjin . the massive ferris wheel over the river . its like 20 stories high with gondolas and takes about 45 minutes to go around . but I know where I am going first . DABEI BUDDHIST TEMPLE . this is the oldest buddhist temple in town , 400 plus years old . so I get there early , they open at nine , its like a buck to get in . I grab some drinks and oreo\'s , chocolate , and wait . at nine I run the gauntlet of beggers , half of them crippled , and Im into the temple . it appears the offering of choice is real apples , followed by incense and fake flowers . lots of apples . they have three big b b q pits where people burn the incense . the temple is about 25 houses , some big , some small , most with statues of buddah , some with statutes of real people , some with statutes of buddah with four heads , some with statutes of buddah with 16 arms , some with statutes of huge warriors guys . boxes to give money . big phalic statutes . lots of pondorosa pines , some bonsai . I have concluded that a grove of pondos in bend have followed me here . love pondos . so it seems the proper way to pray , or worship , is to clasp your hands over your head , bring them down , bow , then get down on your knees , bow again with your hands now out and palms up , and you can hold that postion for quite a while if you like , bow as much as you want , and thats how it is done . so I tried this a few times and really started to get into it . great place . but I wanted to ride that ferris wheel so I decided its time to do that and then come back for more temple action . so I went to the ferris wheel and got into the gondola with three young ladies and this little kid . the ladies where on the phone and snapping photos and the kid was yapping and bouncing around the gondola the whole time . so that was really cool . man , we got H I G H . really high . I mean we were up there and up there for a long time . tianjin is a big town . so I get off the ferris wheel and back to the temple . I buy a bunch of incense and burn it . now Im ready to do some real praying . Im praying to all these statues and giving money and asking for world understanding and awareness and all this stuff . it was almost like some kind of spiritual cross fit sit ups kind of thing . took my hat off for most of the praying . really got into the whole thing . very cool spot . then I split and bought three ropes of prayer flags . then I came back and had lunch and bought some extra bread for the fish . there is this fountain and garden next to my place but the water is so green and thick with algea that I did not think there were any fish in there . there are lots of fish in there , and some big ones . two big ones , a white one thats about a foot , named mobius dick and an orange one about a foot named the cincinatti kid . then there are two or three dozen others about half a foot . then I came back . oh , when I got off the subway , totally unplanned , I found myself at the entrance of the china tobacco building , with , I kid you not , then entrance open and a velvet rope runway to the front door . so I really had no choice but to walk in and buy five cigars . so , now Im here on campus and I dont have any plans to leave campus until october . Im really focused on teaching , but from what I can tell its going to be so fun and easy that I will probably spend my weekends exploring all over the place . last week me and arnel went to this church , that was cool . I had my computer in my back pack so , the next time some one says , do you know anyone who has taken a computer to church in china , you can say , yes , yes I do . I watched this thing on youtube about the el reno oklahoma tornado in 2013 , the biggest tornado ever , and it blew my mind . I will sent you the link . the video guy was named talbot . crazy . meterology as rodeo , meterology as spectator sport . welp , thats about it from my neck of the woods , cats . have a fantastic september . cwb out . go seahawks .

charles webster baer is about to begin negotiations with the government of russia to sell eastern russia to asia for 30 trillion american dollars . all the land east of lake baykal will be sold to china , japan , south korea , taiwan , and singapore . all the money will be evenly divided between all the russian people who have lived in russia since 1999 . charles feels that eventually western russia will become part of the european union so charles would like to help russians make some money before that occurs . charles will be payed a trillion dollar commision and will recieve 300 square miles between new china and new japan . this land will be called charles land . all russians who recieve money will be full citizens of east russians new nations , except for charles land . all new nations will be gig compliant . all new nations will have a decade to set aside over one third of the new country for national parks that will never be developed . also , a twenty mile buffer zone will be between all new nations and this zone will also not be developed , except for roads , rail roads , and pipelines . charles will also assist in the creation of central russia for russians that do not want to live in the east or west . charles thinks this will be a great deal for everyone , just like when the usa bought alaska from russia . europe gets western russia , asia gets eastern russia , and russians get paid and get central russia .
