Sometimes Mr. Wallis is so obscure that I can't figure out what his point is. Is the story believable or not believable because it wasn't fact checked by ENR? And what does "View all news wire headlines" mean?

I find several political and puzzling messages: rebuilding on the same site in a well-known quake area for 5 million and moving 240,000 from a nearby town 30 kilometers away from its danger area. And recognizing that corruption in China is rampant, but saying it won't happen on this project by "...providing a cadre of party officials accountable to the leadership." Or possibly the fact that the Communist government is a top down system that can get things done "without lengthy discussion?"

The report may or may not be accurate, but it sure is a great propaganda piece.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
