No representation is made that the CNY amounts could have been, or could be, converted into US$ at that rate, or at all.

The condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 (unaudited) and the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2012 (unaudited) are derived from, and should be read in conjunction with, the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 21, 2012 under cover of Form 6-K. The results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012.

Mr. Feilie Li, the Company's Chairman and CEO, commented on the 2012 interim results: "In view of the continuing economic growth in the PRC, we believe that demand for coal, in particular coal used in the chemical industry, will continue to be robust in the medium and long run. We are positive about the prospects for the coal mining industry in the PRC and we will continue to pursue growth through acquisition and consolidation of small to medium sized coal mines in Guizhou province."

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
