Happy Chinese New Year!

Chinese New Year2009 is the year of the Ox; an animal that symbolizes hard work and tenacity.* And while I resolve to be more diligent in studying my Mandarin in '09, and admittedly have little idea what this broadcaster is saying, her story from the CCTV News Hour still holds great value in its accompanying B-roll: video of the construction progress at Guandong province's newest nuclear plant, Ling'ao II.

* Despite my seven-year-old niece's declaration, 2009 is not the year of hugs and kisses. Though it could be.
