However, North Korean news is usually a method employed by governing figures to make the ruling party's decisions more favourable to the people (national and internationally), therefore unfavourable stories are commonly not broadcast. The Ryongchon disaster earlier in 2004 was reported only several days after the event. File:Beijing TV Tower 2(2007-07

Yang Guozhong and An were locked in a power struggle, and Yang repeatedly accused An of plotting a rebellion, but Emperor Xuanzong would not believe it, although Li Heng eventually came to agree with Yang Guozhong. In late 755, with Yang Guozhong repeatedly trying to provoke An into a rebellion, An finally did, from his base at Fanyang (范陽, in modern Beijing). After the rebellion started, Emperor Xuanzong briefly considered making Li Heng regent, but at the pleas of Consort Yang and her three sisters (who were fearful that Li Heng would act against them if he had regent powers), did not actually do so.

construction activities

The curious case of Beijing belly button - China Daily Discovery and naming In January 1973 the Museum of the Salt Industry at Zigong in Sichuan was warned that during construction activities with a composter at Jinzidang near the Honghe dam inadvertently a dinosaur skeleton had been processed. A team of the museum managed to salvage some heavily damaged remains. Though locally this animal was at first referred to as "Yubasaurus" or "Honghesaurus", in 1979 Beijing professor He Xinlu named and described it as the type species ''Yandusaurus hongheensis''. The generic name is derived from ''Yandu'', the ancient name for Zigong. This name is a contraction of ''yan'', "salt", and ''du'', "capital", occasioned by the fact that Zigong was historically the centre of Chinese salt mining. In this way ''Yandusaurus'' indirectly also refers to the Salt Museum. The specific name (specific name (zoology)) refers to the Honghe river.
