Bangladaid.... Support UNICEF.

Bangladesh has been hit by one of the worst disasters in decades. Thousands are dead and many more will succumb to the devastating combination of existing poverty and the destruction from Cyclone Sidr.

You can help. Donate as little as $5, and you can tell all your friends that you've done your part in helping the poor souls of Bangladesh fight a very difficult time ahead. UNICEF, one of my favorite aid organizations, will definitely help thousands of Bangladeshis, but they need your help!

The Energy Blog

Bloggin' 从 Shanghai

UPDATE - UPDATE: East Asia Blog is now blogging from Shanghai.

Why the change? I'm super busy so don't expect daily posts, but once in a while I'll send some funnies or updates from China.

What will that mean? No more news stories or debates about issues most people don't really care about anyway. Most visitors - by the way - were people looking for a map of East Asia.

So? Instead, I'll post pictures or events from the day-to-day life here in China.

And now??: To kick off this new twist to East Asia blog, here's a picture I took with my phone in the city of Jiujiang, Jiangxi province, where going to the dentist is as easy as going to 7-Eleven (or Lawson, in Shanghai)

(That's right - you can walk from the street right into the dental office).

... now say "aaaaaaaah"
