What sector do people work in China?

User Avatar
The answer previously posted by 'Contributor' is definitely not correct, because, as China is called, 'the Factory of the World', if they are lazy then they cannot manufacture a portion of the world's products, but unfortunately I do not know of the answer to the question in title.

Is 'Postcard from Beijing' a hoax?

User Avatar
Summary of the eRumor The eRumor warns of a virus just discovered by Mcafee or Norton and classed by Microsoft as the most destructive ever. It says the virus destroys "Sector Zero" from the heard disk, sends itself to all the names in your email address book, wipes out the hard disk, and has caused a panic in New York, according to CNN. It says that the subject will be "A Card for You", "Virtual Card for You", or "Postcard." Some versions also say the subject will be "Postcard from Hallmark." recently- postcard from Beijing- The Truth This particular email is a hoax---although there has been a real- "Postcard" virus.and its nasty . The hoax has circulated continuously on the Internet since at least 2001. There is no known virus called "A card for you" or "A virtual card for you." In July, 2007, someone added "Postcard" to the story and said that it had been verified as a true virus. Note: It is true that there was a virus that appeared in the summer of 2007 with a subject line of: "You've received a postcard from a family member." There were several other variations of the subject line that talked about a "card" or a "greeting card." But that virus had nothing to do with this false warning about "A card for you" or "A virtual card for you" and the warning that CNN had termed it the worst virus ever. Microsoft, Norton, or McAfee have had nothing to say about it except that it is a hoax. hope the info helps . his is a detection of spammed email messages used to entice users into visiting sites hosting exploits that would result in a drive-by download. This is the first part in a three-stage infection of W32/Nuwar@MM. The Java Script used in the second stage of infection is detected as JS Downloader-BCZ. Source:

For Beijingers, the typical breakfast is yóutiáo (油条), deep fried sticks of dough to dip in huge bowls of steaming soya-bean milk (dòujiāng - 豆浆). There are also puffy sheets of steamed bread, also to be dipped in soya milk. Any of these breakfasts could be accompanied by a couple of boiled eggs. And here is info about Beijing Snacks:

How do you describe Beijing?

User Avatar
It would take hours to even scratch the surface, but in a nutshell: Beijing is the political and cultural heart, and one of the few economic centers of China. It is a very large city that at times suffers from very poor air quality, overcrowding, and congestion. Any negatives, however, are far outweighed by its' wonderful and culturally rich past that somehow remains evident in its' present time. It is unlike any other place in the world. A unique combination of its' Communist past and Capitalist future. It is growing and developing by an unimaginable pace (try and take a picture without at least 3 giant cranes in the background). fei chang hao, fa shi!! (a great place, promise!) Modern Beijing Beijing thrives today as the political and cultural capital of China as well as a center of international activity and an important socialist base. Great changes have taken place since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. The city walls were demolished to facilitate transportation and allow for general expansion. By 2001, the population exceeded 12.5 million, and the total municipal area was increased to over 17,800 square kilometers. The city is presently divided into 16 districts: Dongcheng, Xicheng, Chongwen, Xuanwu, Chaoyang, Haidian, Shijingshan, Fengtai, Shunyi, Changping, Mentougou, Tongzhou, Fangshan, Daxing, Huairou and Pinggu. In addition to these urban districts, the municipality is comprised of two counties: Miyun and Yanqing. Plans for future development retain the symmetrical layout of the old city on its north-south axis, extending out into the suburban districts. From Dingfuzhuang in the east to Shijingshan in the west and from Qinghe in the north to Nanyuan in the south, the overall plan covers an area of 1,000 square kilometers. A traffic network of four concentric beltways, 28 radial roads, and underground and suburban railways are being further developed to link the city center with outlying areas and surrounding towns. With Tian'anmen at the center, offices along 38-kilometer-long Chang'an Boulevard will concentrate on state, political and economic affairs. The areas around the Palace Museum (Imperial Palace or Forbidden City) and city gates as well as the lakes -- Zhongnanhai, Beihai and Housanhai -- have been designated landmark districts. And with a look to the future, an increasing number of historical, cultural and revolutionary sites are being renovated and opened to the public.

How long does it take to fly from LA to Beijing?

User Avatar
Just about 12 hours... AirChina has direct roundtrips (Flight#984 and #983). I have flown back and forth 4 times now using these same flights and have had no problems. Also, I highly recommend if you live near a Chinese community (such as my city, Alhambra) that you try to get your tickets through a Chinese travel agency. They have special arrangements to help promote tourism and deep discounts can be had on the airfare. I have flown as cheap as $730, and no more than $790 (all inclusive).
