China is the World's largest producer for Rare Earth Metals

Sharply raising the stakes in a dispute over Japan’s detention of a Chinese fishing trawler captain, the Chinese government has blocked exports to Japan of a crucial category of minerals used in products like hybrid cars, wind turbines, oil refinery process and guided missiles. Chinese customs officials are halting shipments to Japan of rare earth elements (REE), preventing them from being loading aboard ships at Chinese ports, industry officials said on 23 September.
China has been the world largest resources of these Rare Earth metals majority will be in Bao Tao in Magnolia.
Question is what are Rare Earth metals? Earth elements or rare earth metals are a collection of 17 chemical elements in the periodic table, namely Scandium, Yttrium, and the fifteen Lanthanides. Scandium and yttrium are considered rare earths since they tend to occur in the same ore deposits as the Lanthanides and exhibit similar chemical properties.
Earth, Tang Siu Ping had said, Middle East has Crude Oil and China has Rare Earth.
We estimate that there are about 90,000,000 ton so if these stuff of metals, well China is has almost 50% of these rare Earth metal ranked top 1 in the world largest resources, followed by Russia, Brazil, Europe and USA.
These are some of the ingredients for Hi technology products; Laser, Nuclear Battery , X-ray tubes, Computer, Missiles, Oil Refinery industry..etc...
In the old days we sold this stuff to Japan as Flour and they use this flour to make delicate cakes and sell them back to China at a price 1,000 times more expensive. 
Japan has been the main buyer of Chinese rare earths for many years, convert them for a wide range of industrial purposes, making glass for solar panels. They are also used in small steering control motors in conventional gasoline-powered cars as well as in motors that help propel hybrid cars like the Toyota Prius. Each Prius uses up to two pounds of these rare earth metals, although Japan has released our Fishing Boat trailer Captain 0400 25 Sept…We should not sell these Rare Earth Element to Japan anymore unless they come and work with China on how to further explore and turn these Raw material into finished product together.

The Best Cantonese Restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui Hong Kong

For many years, this is one of the best four Chinese Cuisine Restaurants in Tsim Sha Tsui area, Dynasty, Prince restaurant house of Jasimine, and Celestial Court Chinese restaurant…
These are my place for dinner with friend, and some event or celebration.
Regarding of price, Dynasty seems to be the best, Second was Prince and third is House of Jasimine.
Due to the close down of Dynasty on 1 Mar 2010, there would be leaving only Prince and House of Jasmine, as for Celestial Court, I would say it is ranked the third now.
Well, recently, I found that Prince restaurant has re-adjusted their prices book. To be lower honestly. This was confirmed by their manager David and Ken…May be this is the way they can expand their customer base for more local people.
On the Mid Autumn Festival 23 Sept, We took a dinner with family and some of my best friends,  under my pocket!
The food was not as good as it was two years ago... However, I met my best Respected Man of Hong Kong, “Run Run Shaw” and his beloved one there on the next table, they just walked in without reservation, who would hesitate to offer the table for them?
He was on wheel chair and being a man of 102 year old, I think he is healthy, he just donated 100 Million dollar to City University two days ago…Who can beat him as for a decent amount of Donation. He is definitely not the richest man in Hong Kong, But he is the top one supporter for Charity…
As for the food, well, it is good still, but not as surprising "Superb" as it was before…They serve good shark fin, but I did not take it anymore in order to show my mercy to the sharks…
As for Abalone.. I am not good at eating it firstlt as I am poor , secondly, I am poor..
Third, I think I could find at least ten dishes more delicious that that… really!?
The most important things that I could talk to two of my best friends from Overseas… Just met them coincidently.
Being the Mid Autumn festival, I wish all the people in Hong Kong could have all the best in this second largest festival… I miss all my families’ members and beloved ones who could not come to take this dinner with me as I am sure I will do compensation for that…
I wish that the Fishing boat captain would be released unconditionally ASAP… To avoid further damages of the relationship between The China and once our own Four Islands!
