This sports stadium serves as a major relief centre for the earthquake victims, but it is almost an empty building. Some staff tell me that most people have already packed and left for home to attend their crop fields as the sowing season is approaching.

Only on the notice board the memories of the deadly disaster are still loud and haunting.

The note on the photo reads: Looking for My Son.

Message on this missing persons notice:

I ask some of the peasants, whom I first met just shortly after the quake when they stood on the roadside with messages on cardboard reading "no water, no food", what the situations are with them now. They blush in reflection and then laughed.

On a street I see a group of military personnel all barefooted passing by. Upon enquiry I've learned that they just returned from paddy fields after helping the locals to transplanted rice seeds.

Hi, I'm Here, If Only Ya Can See Me!

A 26-year old Chinese PhD student currently studying in the United States and working on a joint project of China's Southeast University and Duke University in the U.S. is chiefly responsible for turning J.K.Rowling's fancy in Harry Porter into reality. He has invented a suit that can make whoever he puts it on become invisible.

It works on redirecting, instead of obstructing, microwave commonly used to detect the object.
