It's Their Party: BackStory From Beijing

When our correspondents go out to do interviews and collect video elements for a piece, it can take hours and hours. All to produce a two- to three-minute package.

In this week's BackStory segment, we got a look at John Vause & crew's very early morning... and very tight restrictions... as they covered China's National Day celebrations.

    Pertaining to eating vegetables especially Spinach. I am not one who personally like to eat raw vegetables. I may eat just a small piece of it but not a whole load of it.
    I love Spinach and I love home-made foods. First of all I wash it very well and I like to steam it. Or I will use it in a recipe as Spinach Lasagne and other such recipes.
    Kyra, have you ever had Spinach and Eggs? It is delicious. In addition, we should season foods, use herbs, garlic and onion if possible. These may combat food poisoning.
    Recently, during a conversation with a friend, the friend was concerned about Spinach and what we heard through the Media, how some US people of all got Samonela poisoning. I told the person there are some people who may eat Spinach and may never wash it first and also some people love to eat raw vegetables.
    I further informed the friend that if one does not get us sick or kill us something else will, such as pollution since we live in a world which is germ-infested and polluted. Therefore, I am not worrying about vegetables. If I practice what I said, I do not think that I will get sick from eating them.
    In addition, when we feel sick, we should immediately drink herb tea which may combat the illness. People also wait too long to seek medical care and the illness will progress and possibly kill them.
    I hope that the Lord protects me and my household from such poisoning.
    Someone told me that a Naturapathic doctor recommended steaming vegetables slightly prior to eating them.

    Disappointed that CNN is sending journalists to China who can't even say "Hello", "Good Morning" and "Thank you" in Chinese. Geeze.

    Kyra; I don't have a problem with real size women or even the plus size women. The problem is that is if you are a petite size 4 as I am,
    then the clothes that our made is one size fits all or some catalog's
    don't even carry petite or smaller, they start at size 10 implying that
    we are not real women, so we end up have to special order and pay more of a petite which uses less material.

    Thank You for your help,
