WASHINGTON, June 11 DC-Miyamoto-Sichuan

WASHINGTON, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Miyamoto International and Global Risk
Miyamoto engineers are set to arrive in Washington DC today to present their
findings on the M8.0 Sichuan Earthquake that hit the western Sichuan Province
in China on May 12, 2008. Kit Miyamoto and team will be available for
interviews in Washington DC on Thursday and Friday. Please contact him
directly to schedule. This team was the first, and so far only known, foreign
engineering team to reach the disaster area. This presentation will discuss
their findings of this disaster.

This strong earthquake particularly affected schools, hospitals,
residential buildings, and industries in the area and presents valuable risk
management lessons for not only China, but the whole world. The earthquake
damaged many unreinforced masonry and non-ductile concrete buildings. These
vulnerable buildings can be found not only in China but in many areas
throughout the world including Asia, North America, Eastern Europe, and South
America. However, the serious damage could have been avoided through seismic
risk management -- particularly the identification and rehabilitation of
dangerous buildings and the protection of nonstructural components.

Currently, there is a World Bank project in Istanbul to address this
serious issue for schools and hospitals. This type of project should be
implemented in China and worldwide to save lives and reduce poverty.

Welcome to, blog home of Superman. Purpose of this blog is for me to discuss my trades and stock ideas (As well as opinions and rants on stock market related issues). I will mention the date and price I enter. As far as exits, I always try to take half off when I have some profit and if I believe in the stock, let the rest run further. I always also use mental stop limits, at which time I would exit and minimize any losses. I do not like to give price targets unless I can support them by P/E in some way or by comparison to another stock. I just post stock trades and ideas that I believe will go higher (or lower for shorts) and the reason I believe that. Individuals should have their own strategies for managing profits and losses. My stock picks tend to NOT be daytrades at all and many take time to move. I am not an investment advisor and this blog should not be considered or followed as investment advice.
