Cao eventually settled in the western suburbs of Beijing where he lived the larger part of his later years in poverty selling off his paintings. Cao was recorded as an inveterate drinker. Friends and acquaintances recalled an intelligent, highly talented man who spent a decade working diligently on a work that must have been ''Dream of the Red Chamber''. They praised both his stylish paintings, particularly of cliffs and rocks, and originality in poetry (Chinese poetry), which they likened to Li He's. Cao died some time in 1763 or 1764, leaving his novel in a very advanced stage of completion. (The first draft had been completed, some pages of the manuscript were lost after being borrowed by friends or relatives.) He was survived by a wife after the death of a son. Kunpeng Airlines was formed as a joint venture between Mesa Airlines and Shenzhen Airlines of China. They began flying in October 2007 with 3 Bombardier CRJ200 aircraft and currently have 5 in China. The airline originally expected to operate 20 CRJ's prior to the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing and plan to expand at a rate of 20 aircraft per year for the next 5 years. All pilots would have been based in Beijing or Xian and the airline initially was to fly to 16 regional airports. Mesa intended to replace the outgoing CRJ200s with larger regional jets such as the CRJ700 and CRJ900. Kunpeng has recently decided to delay delivery of CRJ200 in favor of brand new Embraer E-190 (Embraer E-Jets). All of the Mesa aircraft are being returned. death_date Wikipedia:Beijing Dmoz:Regional Asia China Beijing commons:北京

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.
