Known for her beauty, altruism and occasional clumsiness, Fan Bingbing is also one of the richest women in the movie industry, ranking number four in Forbes' 2015 list naming the World's Highest-Paid Actresses.

Fan collected 21 million USD from June 1 2014 to June 1 2015, earning her a place among the top five leading ladies of film behind Jennifer Lawrence ($52 million), Scarlett Johansson ($35.5 million) and Melissa McCarthy ($23 million). Rounding off the top five is Jennifer Aniston, with 16.5 million USD.

Funny how Hollywood works Aug 21, 2015

I've got all the titles of "The Hunger Games", but so far haven't had the patience of suffering through any of them. I just don't see the major appeal of (the acting of) Jennifer Lawrence.

Famous actresses like Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren, Cate Blanchett have been putting out movies on a regular basis. I wonder why none of them could beat out some of the second-rate actresses in pay?

Jennifer Lawrence seems charming and likable enough in this clip. At least she doesn't take herself too seriously.

I guess my impression of her acting was wrong.

sodium cyanide Aug 22, 2015

According to Chinese officials, the warehouse in Tianjin, a major port city, stored at least 700 tons of one common deadly chemical, sodium cyanide, used in mining to separate gold and silver from rock.

After the deadly explosions, residents of Tianjin have been gripped by fear and uncertainty over the presence of toxic chemicals in the city’s air and water, setting off a national debate about hidden safety hazards along the supply route for sodium cyanide.

Chinese regulations forbid facilities with hazardous chemicals to operate less than one kilometer (two-thirds of a mile) from public buildings and major roads.

The consequences of an accident at such a storage site can be disastrous. The blasts in Tianjin killed over 100 people, injured hundreds more and turned its surroundings into wasteland. Experts said it was possible that some of the sodium cyanide combined with water to form toxic vapor.

Sodium cyanide
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_cyanide
Because the salt is derived from a weak acid, NaCN readily reverts to HCN by hydrolysis: the moist solid emits small amounts of hydrogen cyanide, which smells like bitter almonds (not everyone can smell it—the ability thereof is due to a genetic trait[8]).

Hydrogen cyanide
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_cyanide
Hydrogen cyanide (HCN), sometimes called prussic acid, is an organic compound[8] with the chemical formula HCN. It is a colorless, extremely poisonous liquid that boils slightly above room temperature, at 25.6 °C (78.1 °F).[9]


As a poison and chemical weapon
Main article: Cyanide poisoning

A hydrogen cyanide concentration of 300 mg/m3 in air will kill a human within 10–60 minutes.[44] A hydrogen cyanide concentration of 3500 ppm (about 3200 mg/m3) will kill a human in about 1 minute.[44] …

Hydrogen cyanide has been absorbed into a carrier for use as a pesticide… it was used in the German extermination camp mass killing during World War II...

Hydrogen cyanide is commonly listed amongst chemical warfare agents known as blood agents.[46] As a substance listed under Schedule 3 of the Chemical Weapons Convention as a potential weapon which has large-scale industrial uses, manufacturing plants in signatory countries which produce more than 30 tonnes per year must be declared to, and can be inspected by, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Uh-huh. She's a little ditzy alright, but there's nothing wrong with that. It only shows that she doesn't care much about status symbols - things like the size of her mansion.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical_Corps#Regimental_insignia

The Chemical Corps regimental insignia was approved on 2 May 1986. The insignia consists of a 1.2 inch shield of gold and blue emblazoned with a dragonand a tree. The shield is enclosed on three sides by a blue ribbon with Elementis Regamus Proelium written around it in gold lettering. The phrase translates to: "Let us (or may we) rule the battle by means of the elements". ...

The tree design was taken from the coat of arms of the First Gas Regiment. The mythical chlorine breathing green dragon symbolizes the first use of chemical weapons in warfare (chlorine). Individual Chemical Corps soldiers are often referred to as "Dragon Soldiers."


Elementis Regamus Proelium translates to:
"Let us (or we) rule the battle by means of the elements".

... but if officials act fast they should be able to limit its impact Aug 22, 2015

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-dangerous-is-the-sodium-cyanide-at-the-tianjin-explosion-site/



How dangerous is it?
As with the very similar potassium cyanide used in the L-pill, sodium cyanide is extremely toxic to humans. Although there are risks with skin absorption, the biggest risk is ingestion. Inhaling or swallowing sodium cyanide blocks oxygen transport causing serious medical problems and ultimately death.

However, the safety of sodium cyanide changes if it is present during an explosion. Avoiding oral ingestion should usually be relatively simple but an explosion can cause it to be inhaled as a fine powder (this danger should have passed quickly – and face masks will also prevent fine powder inhalation). The biggest fear is the formation of hydrogen cyanide upon exposure to water or high temperatures. Hydrogen cyanide, as a gas, is very dangerous if inhaled.

What if the remaining store leaks?
Contamination of water supplies could be a concern but is easily tested for. The Chinese authorities seem to be treating the spill with hydrogen peroxide, which forms significantly less dangerous fulminates. Waste water and other areas could be simply treated with sodium hypochlorate(bleach) to remove cyanide ions.

The spill is (but more significantly was) very dangerous, especially at these levels. But the nature of cyanides means we can detect them easily and monitor the process of cleaning up. The clean-up should proceed as quickly as possible. The other heartening factor is that after the short-term – albeit very seriously deadly – effects, there should be no slow-onset ramifications, as you would get with a carcinogen or something harder to deal with.

All previous spills have been dealt with easily with no long-term effects and the procedures are well known, so all the hydrogen cyanide in Tianjin should now be gone. The solid sodium cyanide is not so dangerous in passing: you can open a bottle with 3,000 times the lethal dose without any problems (without letting it react with moisture and convert to hydrogen cyanide). The advice for anyone nearby would be to avoid drinking the contaminated water and stay out of the area while the hydrogen cyanide is processed by natural biochemical pathways and climate dilution to safe levels.

To what countries would the sodium cyanide be exported? Aug 23, 2015

If all of the at least 700 tons of sodium cyanide would be used for production of gold and silver, that would be lovely. However, what if they fell into the hands of bad guys? There are a few countries that have neither signed nor acceded to the Chemical Weapons Convention.
