Feedback praises E-magazine

Our business editor Christine Zhu today excitedly called us that she had received an email with highly positive comments on our E-magazine "Insight," which was launched in January. It was a great encouragement to our efforts. Attached here is the full text of this email.

Dear Editor & team members,

Congratulations for this very focused publication.

Certainly one of the better English coverages of China's economic situation. If only you might plan to build on the contents & retail it as a business edition or as a business digest. However, I do understand the constraints as there might not be sufficient readership to substantiate such a bold, strategic move. I remembered what happened to the now-defunct, orange-page, China Business Daily.

I can only say that, unfortunately, your market would be outside China for now.

Thank you for a superlative e-report. Good luck.

Edmund Ho

A Briton finally got back his cell phone at the Shanghai Daily, four hours after he lost it in a cab yesterday afternoon.

Gary Wilson’s cell phone was returned to him last night in the Shanghai Daily’s news room by Huang Zhichao, the driver of taxi number DN7906 of Dazhong Taxi Co.

“I couldn’t thank him enough for the return of my cell phone because it is almost half of my life,” Wilson, a crew member with Germany’s Lufthansa Airlines, said when meeting Huang in the news room.

“The information in the phone is so important to me and I was very relieved when I heard that some one had found my phone,” Wilson said.

Wilson was on a two-day business trip to Shanghai and is scheduled to leave the city today.

He lost his cell phone after getting into Huang’s cab at the crossroads of Nanjing Road W. and Chengdu Road around 3:30pm yesterday.

“He was heading for Chongqing Road in Xujiahui which was in the opposite direction from the way my car was going and it would take a long way before I could make a U-turn legally,” Huang said. “So I suggested to him it would be better for him to take another cab across the street. I hadn’t started the meter yet.”

It now rains a lot in Shanghai, with the approaching to the city’s annually rainy season—the Plum Rain Season, called by the city’s locals.

The season is a special meteorological phenomenon of the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River, and causes the weather damp and hot.

Experts said it is still hard to predict when the Plum Rains starts this year, although the expected coming of the season is in the mid-June.

The sultry weather is caused by the low pressure and humidity and usually lasts for about 20 days from mid-June to early July, with the annual average rainfall of 244.4 millimeters.

So don’t forget to take umbrella with you, it may have another month of continues rainy day.

You can buy dozens of shocks and T-shirts, because it may take over many days for the clothes to dry. or just buy a dryer home!

Clothes and quilts of winter are suggested to shine under the sun or dried and asepticised before storing because the humid and hot season always causes them mildew.

Not to decorate houses in the rain season for walls painted on humid days will become moldy easily.

Dong Jinyu, a sports reporter on the Xinmin Evening News for whose recovery many Shanghai Daily journalists made donations, died of liver cancer at his home in Shanghai on June 3. He was 26.

The Wenhui-Xinmin United Press Group, publisher of the Shanghai Daily and Xinmin Evening News, announced the news in an obituary posted on the boards in the canteen last Wednesday.

Dong, who earned the reputation of being a hard worker, was survived by his parents in North China’s Hebei Province and his fiancée in Shanghai.

Dong’s funeral service was held in the Longhua Funeral Parlor at 3pm on Friday. More than 250 people attended the funeral, including top leaders from the group and some soccer tycoons who were close to Dong, according to Chen Jing, a colleague who did the funeral arrangements.

“His condition had remained stable after he went back home from hospital but suddenly it deteriorated,” Chen said.

Dong was allowed to stay home for treatment after two operations and several chemotherapy sessions in hospital, Chen said.

“The sports department of Xinmin Evening News has bought him a water bed two days before he passed away,” Chen said.

The water bed was said to be helpful to soothing Dong’s pains, she added.

A lot of people in the city might have experienced a sleepless night with the news that a little girl’s destiny was in the balance and attracting so much attention.

We should say local police, emergency staff as well as our media reporters all performed at their best in the incident, which suddenly tightened the city’s nerves after a long period of peace.

A four-year-old girl was unlucky enough to be kidnapped by a guy yesterday afternoon in a KFC outlet down town and, in a manner of speaking, the resulting siege tested the city’s response system as well as the character of its residents.

Police officers and negotiation experts were reported to have arrived at the scene about 10 minutes after the girl was seized, followed by local media reporters, including two from the Shanghai Daily.

We should say both the reporters and the police officers tried their best to serve society each in their own way.

Dong Jun, our photographer, who rushed to scene after receiving the call, made every effort to approach to scene, which was under strict police surveillance. But like the photographers and TV cameramen from other media, he was kept away by police officers, whose duty was to try their best to keep the hostage - and even the kidnapper --- safe.

Since staying at the scene was impossible, Dong Jun and other reporters moved to nearby buildings which had good views of the drama and stuck there till the end of the incident. This was the way information about what was going on at the scene got to most of the media.

Though the picture on today’s front page of Shanghai Daily was not shot by Dong Jun, we should still say thank you to him for his spirit and professionalism. Pictures above are from Dong Jun and they take us back to the scene and we can experience the nervous atmosphere of that moment.
