Hello again from Aim2D real time, 24/7 #ChinaBusinessMarketing, Tech and Social Media News Portal of Bic Brands based in sunny Shunyi. Tuesdays we look at business, marketing, tech or social news in and around China. Friday is image gallery where we examine a place, topic or subject giving you greater insight, background to life in China, and of course, your Chinese consumer.
Today we are adding a new source to our file and changing our Friday image gallery to an incident in Chinese history worthy of a place in any who dunnit novel list.
For today’s article, we are sidestepping back a wee way into time. Back 400 years in fact to Beijing. In 1626, a massive explosion destroyed the better part of what was, at the time, the South West Beijing. Today, no one is still quite certain who, what or why.
What is known is that the explosion occurred at the Wanggongchang Armory where, naturally enough arms and munitions were stored. Including a considerable amount of gunpowder. But the course?
Some speculate it was an accident with the gunpowder, poor handing maybe? Others contend it was an earthquake, a build up of gasses or the the first know nuclear attack from Aliens. Modern scientists have even suggested it may have been a hurricane.
So, what really happened at Wanggongchang Armory?
For answer to that and more background detail, we turn to our latest news source; TWOC or “The World of Chinese.”
To learn more about China, past and present, history, culture, arts , language, society and life, and by extension, your Chinese customers, be sure to subscribe to and follow TWOC – The World of Chinese.
Just to finish for today, we;d like to say congrats and well done to Seoul on their launch of Autonomous mini busses, as covered here by Gulf News and the usual suspects:

However we’d also like to point out that we covered this here back in February 2021.
