  • they followed their leaders? not one person on the All Star team treated the team captain as a leader, stop hyping and giving credit to lerbron for such ridiculous claims. none of them followed suit, they would have played hard regardless if lebron or Giannis didnt take it serious. the captains are literally just popularity contests. Stop

  • THAT, was a helluva game, Definitely the 4th quarter. I was going out of my mind. And so were people around me in a sports bar, in Orange, California. It was wicked - WOW it was so great!!! Kawhi deserved the Inaugural Kobe B. Bryant ASG MVP Trophy. The block by Giannis on Lebron at the glass in the 4th quarter was epic! I loved seeing Kawhi, Anthony Davis AND Lebron all defending Giannis at the same time - that had to be a picture for the ages OMG!!!

  • ) Among all the earthquakes in the 20th Century, the one in Tangshan, China on July 28, 1976, was probably the most devastating with a death toll of about 240,000 people. Its M7.8 magnitude, however, makes it only the 18th largest earthquake in the century. Natural Disaster vs. Human Error No warning was issued to the public prior to the Tangshan earthquake. In fact, when a nationwide earthquake prevention conference took place in Tangshan just two weeks earlier on July 14, numerous attempts by experts to report their findings of an upcoming earthquake in Tangshan were suppressed for political reasons, citing the city’s close distance to Beijing. Wang Chengmin was a young scientist from National Earthquake Administration. After he was barred from announcing the warning at the plenary session of the conference, he took a risk and shared his findings during small-group discussion sessions in the evening of July 17 and 18. “An earthquake of M5 or higher is predicted in the area of Tangshan City and Luan County between July 22 and August 5,” he told other attendees. A delegate from Qinglong County, Hebei Province, heard this and reported it to his local officials, who quickly notified everyone in the county. When the earthquake hit on July 28, no one died in the county with a population of 400,000, although it was only about 115 km (71 miles) from Tangshan. The miracle of Qinglong was documented by the United Nations as an example of disaster prevention, warning, and management. The Qinglong miracle also debunked the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda that the Tangshan earthquake was “sudden” and had no warning signs. Liu Huaqing, a formal admiral of the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) in China, once said of the Tangshan earthquake, “This earthquake was a natural disaster, but its damage was aggravated by human mistakes.”
