    The super rice was developed by Yuan Longping,the father of hybrid rice, who started developing hybrid rice in the 1960s. His research team reached the target unit yield of 700 kg per mu and 800 kg per mu in 1999 and 2005, setting world records both times.

    Famine

    The United Nations humanitarian affairs coordinator Valerie Amos has advised that the food crisis in the Horn of Africa is more and more heavier and over 12 million people need other's help. Baroness Amos said she feared that famine could spread to five or six more regions of war-torn Somalia unless there were more people paid attention to them and helped them.

    A little less than two weeks ago, They nounced a famine in two regions in Somalia. Now they are warning that unless we see a massive increase in the answer, the famine will spread to five or six more regions. Ten of thousands of Somalis have already died, and hundreds of thousands were facing nothing to eat with results for the hole region.We should not waste food because many people have nothing to eat and we should contribute many things for them .

    The Winner of Making Money
    People wanted to go to the real estate area, bourses where you could get much more money. At that time, no one have thought that toll of Roads and Bridges has been to the winner of making money in 360 industries in China.
    According to the investigation, the 19 toll of Roads and Bridges companies produced a 59.14 percent gross margin in the last year. They beat the oil companies, securities trader and real estate manager easily; also they have been to the biggest beneficial industry. For the historical reason, the toll of Roads and Bridges had been formed. It is the company need to loan to mending the road, loan fees owing on the loan. A lot of companies make profits from mending Roads and Bridge. At the same time, the companies not only trampled down the public attribute of the roads, but also spanned over the economic principle.
    When I read the report, I was shocked. Private companies trying their best to making money, I couldn’t image public service gets the most money. At that time, I also don't know how could I understand our government’s words. They always said that they serve the people.
