You have to be in the top 10 to be able to crank it up to 'high'
The Tianhe-1 supercomputer in the Chinese city of Tianjin is back online. State organs China Youth Daily and People.com.cn are both reporting, with more than a little tinge of pride, that the supercomputer survived the blast thanks to the resilience of the data centre in which it was housed. The data centre is a couple of …
Hard to say, really. I think we'll just have to wait and see how this plays out. Might be bigger things going on than what's being said.
When the early reports were coming out and mentioning that the company bosses were "detained", any mention of "re-education" or punishment was downvoted. Yet, it now would appear that the bosses are (to use an old movie phrase) singing like canaries. I wonder if it's under duress or the promise of reduced charges and/or punishment?
thinking about all this, I'm wondering about some of the reporting accuracy
First, the site is constantly being described as a storage warehouse - but it actually appears to have been a container depot for loading ships. Therefore you'd expect most of the boxes to be stored outside, not inside. And it wouldn't surprise me if the alleged 10t storage limit is irrelevant - if the cyanide was at the depot awaiting despatch, rather than just being stored, the legal limit may not apply.
Secondly, you normally store ammonium nitrate in something like a dutch barn, or a "leaky" building with lots of gaps in the walls to allow blast to escape. If the stuff was stored indoors then that would break any western concept of safety quite badly.
The problem with China is that we are never sure if we can trust the information that comes out of it.
The BBC are reporting that government officials are saying the death toll is 114 and there are still 70 missing:
Can we really trust these numbers or is it possible that the actual tolls are much greater but the government are hiding it?
