Umbilical cord to Hainan

Someone send me this news today and I think we should cut it and get some Kentucky Fried Fish in the process instead of waiting in line for Oprah's free Chicken (here)


The cable with a diameter of 14cm will serve the power and telecom nets and national defense mission on the island.

The 32-kilometer-long oil-filled and kraft-paper-wrapped high voltage cable, dragged by engine, arrived at Linshi Island of Qiaotou town in Chengmai County at 15:28pm, connecting the power nets of the island to those of the mainland.

The connection ended the island’s history of running power all by itself. "People of Hainan had looked forward to the day for years and it finally came true," said Yin Lian, manager in general of the corporation.

A ship carrying cable left from Guangdong last week and "threw out" cable all the way along. It was about 1,000 meters away off the Linshi Island where the cable was capped with a terminal, which was then carried by a boat to the shore. The terminal was laid along the planned line before an engine boat pulled out the cable under the sea with people cheering.

The cable with a diameter of 14cm will serve the power and telecom nets and national defense mission on the island.

According to South China Power, it was discussing further cooperation with Hainan with three more submarine cables to be laid connecting the island the mainland.

I've been using Sponsered Tweets for a short time. Not sure how long this will last as Twitter is going to be serving their own ads soon. They may boot out people for posting their own ads. Sonsered Tweets is an IZEA company. Pay is darn good!
