At least 349 people died in China last month due to flooding, landslides and other weather-related disaster, the government said. The official Xinhua News Agency said that another 99 people were still missing, while damage was estimated at $2.5 billion.
China suffers hundreds of rain deaths every summer. The impact of flooding has been worsened by heavy farming and tree-cutting that has left cleared hillsides unable to trap rain. Major cities are shielded by flood dikes but small towns, especially in mountainous areas, are vulnerable to deadly flash floods.
China is expected to suffer from more typhoons than usual this year due to an unusually warm current off its Pacific and high temperatures over the Tibetan plateau. - Read it All @ MSNBC
Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.  It was created as an expansion of the San Francisco Bay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality , was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".  The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender , to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia . - Wikipedia Anything That
