World's Largest Chinese Fried Rice in Costa Rica?? WTF!?

-Is that such a big deal?

February 12, 2013 Costa Rica

A wok with nearly a ton of fried rice, prepared Tuesday for the Chinese community in Costa Rica to celebrate the Chinese New Year, entered the Guinness Book of Records as the largest amount of Cantonese fried rice that has been cooked in the world.

Ralph Hannah, a Guinness World Record (GWR) judge from England, made the announcement at around noon after weighing the huge dish, confirming it weighed 1,345 kilograms.

The GWR representative for Latin America also confirmed that this is the first time that Costa Rica enters the famous world record book.

Armed with shovel-sized spatulas, 52 chefs gathered at 6 a.m. on Tuesday in the newly opened Chinatown in San José, around the giant wok specially made for the occasion.

Chefs cooked 735 kilograms of rice, 200 kg of chicken, 120 kg of ham, 20 kg of Chinese sausage, eggs and large quantities of chopped onions and sweet peppers, among other ingredients, to prepare the huge dish, introduced into Costa Rican food culture many years ago by Chinese immigrants.

Godwin Pang, coordinator of the event, said the initiative came from the China Association of Costa Rica, to celebrate the Chinese New Year (of the Snake), held on Feb. 10.

Much of the large Chinese community in Costa Rica is dedicated to the restaurant business, and restaurants can be found in most towns throughout the country.

艾丽搭了一个积木城堡,可是却发现少了一面插在城堡上的旗子。艾丽告诉优优不要碰这个­城堡,然后去找小旗子。优优看住了鲁拉,拉住了巴托,都没有让他们碰这个城堡。可是他­自己却忍不住拿了城堡上的一块积木,让整个城堡都倒了下来!这下优优可闯了祸。

"How China Became Capitalist" by Ning Wang Talk at CATO INSTITUTE

-Great talk THANK YOU CATO!

China has taken an extraordinary, and often unanticipated, journey in transforming itself from a closed agrarian socialist economy to a powerful economic force in the international arena. Coase and Wang persuasively argue that the reforms implemented by China's leaders during the past 35 years did not represent a concerted attempt to create a capitalist economy, and it was "marginal revolutions" that introduced the market and entrepreneurship back to China. Lessons from the West were guided by the traditional Chinese principle of "seeking truth from facts." How China Became Capitalist challenges received wisdom about the future of the Chinese economy, warning that while China has enormous potential for further growth, the future is clouded by the government's monopoly of ideas and power. The authors argue that the development of a market for ideas — which has a long and revered tradition in China — would be integral to bringing about the Chinese dream of social harmony.

How China Became Capitalist

How China Became Capitalist details the extraordinary, and often accidental, journey that China has taken over the past thirty years in transforming itself from a closed agrarian socialist economy to an indomitable force in the international arena.
The authors revitalize the debate around the development of the Chinese system through the use of primary sources. They persuasively argue that the reforms implemented by the Chinese leaders did not represent a concerted attempt to create a capitalist economy, but that the ideas from the West eventually culminated in a fundamental change to their socialist model, forming an accidental path to capitalism. Coase and Wang argue that the pragmatic approach of "seeking truth from fact" is in fact much more in line with Chinese culture.

How China Became Capitalist challenges the received wisdom about the future of the Chinese economy, arguing that while China has enormous potential for growth, this could be hampered by the leaders' propensity for control, both in terms of economics and their monopoly of ideas and power.
