China says 'no such thing' as man-made islands in South China Sea

China says 'no such thing' as man-made islands in South China SeaThere was "no such thing" as man-made islands in the disputed South China Sea, China's Defence Ministry said on Thursday, and reiterated that any building work was mainly for civilian purposes. China, which claims most of the resource-rich region, has carried out land reclamation and construction on several islands in the Spratly archipelago, parts of which are also claimed by Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam. "Most of the building is for civilian purposes, including necessary defensive facilities." The South China Sea is generally stable at present, but some countries outside the region are anxious about this and want to hype things up and create tensions, Wu said, using terminology that normally refers to the United States.

The Mexico Tourism Board made a cloud that rains tequila and we're booking our flights now

The Mexico Tourism Board made a cloud that rains tequila and we're booking our flights nowGrab your rim-salted margarita glass and your galoshes because there is now a cloud that can answer all of your Happy Hour prayers. The Mexico Tourism Board and the creative agency LAPIZ have partnered to create a manmade cloud that produces raindrops of actual tequila.  The first cloud that rains tequila.  #tequilacloud #visitmexico A post shared by VisitMexico (@visitmexico) on Mar 9, 2017 at 5:41am PST SEE ALSO: Drought drives huge, deadly cobra to calmly drink from a villager's water bottle The boozy puff was developed as a promotional stunt to attract German tourists to Mexico and was put on display at an art gallery in Berlin called Urban Spree.  Unfortunately, the cloud can't float freely and meet you at your favorite bar. It's actually formed by a tequila-based mist held together by a plastic container to help it keep its fluffy cloud shape. According to The Huffington Post, the LAPIZ team used ultrasonic humidifiers to "vibrate" the tequila at a rate that turns the alcohol into a visible mist that is filtered into the container.  #tequilacloud Serving free shots of delicious Silver Tequila since 2016. Come to Urban Spree, Revaler Strasse 99 for a taste #mexico #travel #tequila #art #berlin A post shared by Ernesto Adduci (@eadduci) on Mar 10, 2017 at 7:31am PST The vapor of the tequila then condenses inside of the plastic and drops from the cloud. It was also synched with the local weather patterns so when it rained in Berlin, the tequila poured down, too. Drinkers can hold their glasses under the cloud for an alcoholic rain shower shot. If that seems like too much work to get your buzz, there is a spout beneath the cloud for anyone who doesn't want to wait for the storm.
