Supreme Dragon Rowland Heights - RIP

I did not even notice it till I was on Yelp today, and saw that Supreme Dragon was closed. It's was located in the Hong Kong Plaza, named for the Hong Kong Market that used to be there.

LA.Eater had an article that was insightful. I thought the prices went up and quality went down. One of the Yelp reviews mentioned they got new owners that short staffed the restaurant. Another article mentioned how there is a lot more competition in the area now selling Beef Noodle Soup.

The plaza used to be very nice, but now it has a lot of empty store fronts. A friend that had a restaurant there had a direct competitor open right next to them. They got into a price war, and my friend's restaurant survived, but it left a bad flavor. They then sold the restaurant, and the new owner could not make it work.

Three Family Restaurant is in the same plaza that has a good Beef Soup.

Rowland Heights Housing

I just went to an open house yesterday in Rowland Heights, and I was surprised to find a cost cut. From 808,000 to 789,800.

$18,200 reduction, 2.3% change.

Nice house that used to have an outdoor model train in the back, that the real estate person said to take out :-(

It's also been on the market for 72 days.

And I am not seeing a huge amount of other Rowland Heights houses on the market.

I am not sure why...

The what is China, China, and China.

90% of Authors Don't Earn a full Time Income from Writing

I was surprised...

Just one in ten authors can earn full-time living from writing, report finds - The Telegraph

And 17% got no pay in a year!

There are many online publications, where authors are not paid for articles.

The good news is with eBook publishing, more authors are able to make more money. It's a huge change in the industry. I hope Amazon continues to pay 70% to Indies.

Success by Being Less Asian?



Unfortunately, I need to agree with the article.

Stereotypes are mental short cuts, and the admission process deluges admission offices with a huge amounts of applications, and somehow the overworked admission people need to reduce it substantially. And with too many Asian applicants, they look for looking for Asian applicants who stand out. And how to stand out? By doing less of the Asian typical activities. No racket sports. More Leadership, definitely a sport. And the typical non-profit type activities. And choose a major that is seen as less Asian.

Fixing China’s Coal Problem

Good news, which I am surprised about, for cleaning of China's Coal.

China is actually reducing the pollution through scrubbing technology for power plants that use coal, as well as discouraging the home use of coal for heating.

Why does this matter? China is the biggest burner of coal in the world, and probably burns as much coal as the rest of the world combined.  China has a huge pollution issue that is impacting the health of it's people, and causing social unrest.
