Spirit of a Kenyan Sportswoman


A Kenyan elite runner, Jacquline Nyetipei passes water to a dehydrated disabled Chinese runner who she saw suffering. This delayed her from winning. She came 2nd in the race not only losing the 1st position but also a US$10,000 cash prize. It's not all about winning, its the spirit of marathon! So proud to be Kenyan.....

There is a world of difference in food for Chinese communist party leaders and general Chinese citizens.

Since the milk powder disaster was disclosed to the public in September 2008, official reports put the number of babies with medical conditions related to the ingestion of toxic milk at three hundred thousand, with six confirmed deaths by the government (the true figures are yet to be determined).

The Deputy Governor of Hebei province has revealed that the addition of melamine to Sanlu milk powder has been kept secret since April 2005, and at the same time the National State Council was establishing a center for the Central State Organ for Special Food Supply.

On August 18th, the eve before the news broke on the melamine contamination of Sanlu milk powder, and when all eyes were on the Beijing Olympics, the Chinese Communist Party held a conferral ceremony in Jinan city, Shangdong province, at the Center for Central State Organ for Special Food Supply.

The speech given during the ceremony by the Head of the Special Food Suppliers Center, Zhu Yong Lan, was widely spread online by Chinese bloggers.

In her speech, Zhu says "...the tests for selecting products for the Special Food Suppliers Center are very stringent, with an emphasis on safety and good nutrition."

She also indicates: "the use of large amounts of chemical pesticides and fertilizers is widely known to be common practice in the agricultural industry,and it is common place for antibiotics and growth hormones to be used in the poultry and meat industry, common for aquatic food products to be contaminated by polluted water, and that these particles will partially remain in the finished product, causing health damage to the consumers. ... organic food must be produced in accordance with the processes of nature, free from chemical fertilizers, pesticides, growth hormones, pollution, artificial additives, preservatives, genetic modification and must have organic food certification."

Zhu explains that organic food is produced in accordance with the AA grade of Chinese Green Food, and that a failure to meet this criteria means the food is not genuinely organic, and thus cannot be selected as a product of the Central State Organ for Special Food Supply.

According to an announcement by the Chinese authorities after the poisoned milk scandal was disclosed: Sanyuan milk powder, possibly the only brand of milk powder not contaminated by melamine, was especially chosen for the Communist leaders who reside at Zhongnanhai, and the Olympic teams in Beijing. However two months later, there are still some brands produced by Sanyuan milk undergoing tests for melamine contamination.

One blogger revealed that the reason the Sanyuan milk powder has not been found to have been contaminated is because the company’s products are present on the dining tables of Zhongnanhai and the Great Hall of the People.
Another blogger commented that if the Party's central leaders did not have food specially provided for them, no one in China would dare produce toxic food.
