CCTV must seize the chance to present itself as one of the new landmark of Beijing during the Olympic games
I guess it maybe the projection

Awesome building and metamorphosis in Beijing! Too bad the Chinese still eat dogs and cats, kill them live and treat them like they're lower than chickens or rats, when all the animals want is love. The Egyptians thought that cats were gods, and I think they were right.

Oh well, what a great piece of architecture! Did I cross a boundary? Sorry, I'm new. Just let me know, but I feel great buildings are part of great cultures; and if you're cultured, you know your boundaries!

There seem to be many smog free days this month, although the shutdown of the factories has not started yet (I think it will start tomorrow, on July 15). So next month the air quality might be even better.

I am looking forward to the Games. The best opportunity for blue sky photos for a long time.

The smog really was a big concern for me in the past. I was really afraid that a few weeks in a city like Beijing could hurt my health. That´s why I chose the time during the Olympic Games for a twenty day journey to Beijing and Tianjin. I hope that the air quality next month will be so good that authorities will decide to shut down the dirty factories permanently. It would be a shame if they build such nice skyscrapers and they are covered under smog half of the time.

Take a trip to China, that will clear up many misconceptions of yours (for example, you'll have to search very hard to find a dog meat restaurant, and many people have dogs as pets).

I believe in India, cows are sacred. Now, you seem like you are a North American or European. You must really love eating your cow and pig intestines stuffed with ground-up cow and pig organs and cancer-causing chemicals. Ironically, you call them "hot dogs".

So then you should be against every country and every person on the planet, because this kind of thing is practised worldwide.

I believe the sky is so clear at the moment because the government is carrying out a cloud seeding program in the country-side surrounding Beijing, forcing it to rain and helping clear the skies.

Yeah, makes sense making rain in the country-side when most pollution are caused in in the city.
