Chinese netizens are furious at the local government of Hefei city, Anhui province, for wasting a large amount of public money, after it was founded that a big quantity of high-cost Crape Myrtle trees the government imported from Vietnam have died.
Reportedly, Heifei city constructed a forest nursery, and “brought in a hefty shipping of crap myrtle trees from Vietnam” for it last December.
The precious shrubs are an average of 100 years old, and cost as high as 400,000 RMB each tree.
Unfortunately however, the local residents have found out that the first group of trees to be planted have died, due to various reasons such as “an inappropriate transplanting season“! Check the picture above.

A nearly nude crosplayer was taken away by the local police yesterday at the 4th Shenzhen Cartoon and Animation Festival.
The five-day event, which opened on July 18 in the city’s Convention and Exhibition Center, features cosplay matches, street dances, cartoon and animation innovation for young people as well as electronic games.
But only about one hour after the event kicked off, a young girl, who stripped off her clothing and used nipple covers and nude panties to cover her private parts, suddenly appeared in the crowd of attendees, and readily made postures before the cameras.

At around 13:30 p.m., July 18, a man seized a woman as a hostage, and put her down on the ground by using a shard of glass, in front of a passenger station in Cangzhou city, Hebei province.
The topless man, 25 years old, chased after the woman when finding her stepping out of the passenger station, according to eyewitnesses. The woman was then caught and wrestled down to the ground on a street.
By sitting on top of the victim, the offender holding a glass shard shouted to the people, “don’t come close,” and “I want to meet the head of the public security bureau.”
The victim was struggling on the ground with blood all over her hands and face, while more and more passers by stopped and watched.
On receiving the report, the local police arrived later. They controlled the traffic, and started to talk with the offender. But the efforts failed, as the man insisted to ask for meeting with the bureau chief first.
But ultimately, the offender was still subdued as the officers seized the chance when talking with him. The hostage was saved too and rushed to the hospital for treatments.
The local police later said in an interview that the offender was mentally unstable. “Possible because he was tired of long journey, and the weather was hot, the man had an illusion that some one wanted to kill him,” explained an officer upon why the offender took the victim as his hostage and wanted to meet the leader.
