The key question is why SCEI "went dark" in the first place.
Historical Prices suggest massive naked short-selling has occurred in this stock.

(from 10-K) We are seeking strategic cooperation and acquisition opportunities with companies that own
new technology, distribution network and innovative management with high return. One of our long term
objectives is to generate revenue, build assets and long-term distribution channels outside of China....
We will primarily focus on acquiring companies that have a direct relationship to our existing businesses
and industries. A strict due diligence process is required and a feasibility study will be conducted to
ensure these acquisitions will yield long-term benefits and support the global expansion plan.
Industry-related distribution companies will be targeted in all product categories which can expand our reach by opening channels and upgrade the overall logistics systems. Parameters will be set to stay in line with the master plan in relation to geographical markets and strategic positioning. Long term client relationships will justify the investment in solid quality distribution systems.
A major focus of our strategy will be seeking profitable technologically advanced companies that have
advantages and can be adopted by the Chinese operations. We believe by building from the outside
- we expect to achieve our goal in becoming a global leader. Successful and innovative technologies
will remain a key principle in our policies into the future. Developing these areas will be essential in
maintaining a competitive advantage.
My question can't be answered without knowing the whole truth, but I hope honest people get to try.
Both Gansu Yasheng and Yasheng Group shareholders seem likely to take accounting hits. HERB is
already trading at a very depressed level, so maybe its holders will suffer less. I'd start by purging
the prevaricators. Focus on profitable units and practical projects in Gansu, China.
Note that 'recognized worldwide as the "golden mile" for hops planting'
came from an American mind. Kilometer rather than mile is used globally.
(from Wikipedia) Hops production is concentrated in moist temperate climates, with much of the world's production occurring near the 48th parallel north. (worthwhile reading)
Gansu Xiaheqing is north latitude 3933'-3936' ("golden mile" south?)
So you wouldn't expect the price of hops in China to be soaring either.
(from 10-K) Tiaoshan Jialv Hops Co., Ltd., was founded in 1982 and for the next 20 years or so mainly
engaged in the production of hops. From 1989 to 2001, revenues increased due to a rising market
and product quality. From 2002 to 2004, it started to lose market share and customers to other farms
in the west due to poor hops quality. In 2006, we began to shift our production from small collective farms
to large scale field industrial cultivation.
Gansu Xiaheqing Industrial Co., Ltd. With the temperate zone dry climate, it has long sunny days and big temperature difference between day and night as well as good light and heat conditions. Therefore,
it is worldwide recognized as the “golden mile” for hops planting. Its operating entities,...

nutrition difference? (wiseGEEK)
beyond the color, there is no difference between chicken eggs of different colors. White and brown eggs are nutritionally identical, and they are physically identical on the inside.
The color of chicken eggs is determined by materials which are deposited while the eggs develop inside the hen's oviduct. Some chickens deposit white pigments, while others deposit brown pigments, and some chicken breeds like the Aracauna and Americauna lay blue to green eggs. The original predecessor of the chicken, the Red Junglefowl, lays cream-colored eggs. Different egg colors appear to have developed over the course of centuries of breeding.
Both white and brown eggs contain a yolk and a white, each enclosed by a protective envelope, along with a tough outer membrane between the white and the shell, and two chalazae to keep the yolk anchored in the egg during fetal development.
In fresh eggs, the string-like chalazae are clearly visible and well-formed. More nutritious eggs have darker yolks, reflecting a greater concentration of vitamins and minerals.
white versus brown eggs?
The color difference is due to the specific breed of hen, according to the Egg Nutrition Center. Hens with white feathers and white earlobes generally lay white eggs, whereas hens with red feathers and matching-colored earlobes usually lay brown eggs. However, there are exceptions. The color really depends upon the pigments that are deposited on the egg as it makes its way through the oviduct.
The most common breeds of chickens used for egg-laying are the White Leghorn, the Rhode Island Red, and the New Hampshire. White Leghorn chickens are white and lay white eggs. Rhode Island Red and New Hampshire chickens are reddish brown and lay brown or brown-speckled eggs.
Brown eggs may be more expensive because the chickens that lay them eat more than those that lay white eggs." Among the breeds that lay brown eggs are the Rhode Island Red, the New Hampshire and the Plymouth Rock -- all larger birds that require more food.
As a result of global climate change, expected by 2020, an uptrend is expected of temperature and rainfall. Precipitation across the province shows a consistent increasing trend, which should increase by 0.82% ~ 7.63%, among which Jiuquan in the eastern part of the Gansu Province experiences more obvious increase in precipitation with an increase of 6% ~ 7.63%.
Temperature in all parts of Gansu Province will be higher. The increased rate of the temperature is increasing slightly from east to west. Temperature increase range is between 0.68 degrees and 0.95 degrees. The temperature increase in the western region of Gansu Province is slightly higher than that in the other parts. We believe that the special climate change will be more conducive to the needs of agriculture illumination, temperature, and humidity.

is stopped at Shapotou by the Yellow river, producing a huge sand dune. The slope is 300m long
and rises to about 100 meters high.
There are about 180 large and small lakes, grassland, oasis, Mongolian and Hui minority villages,
Han nationality villages, and it has a well-built desert highway-Baolan railway, China's first railroad passing through deserts. Moreover it is a strategic east-west lifeline, cutting through the southern border of Tengger desert at Shapotou. The railway has been operating smoothly for about 50 years thanks to the desert control program. The Shapotou Desert Research Station has developed an effective method to contain the desert
by planting straw grids on the dunes. View Images on Web.
The Sodaville deposit ... is the eastern end of the Excelsior Mountains and a little over 2 km west of Sodaville, Mineral County. Bentonite from this deposit was shipped to California during the late 1920's and early 1930's for use in drilling mud and for sealing portions of the Owens Valley aqueduct.
The oldest rocks are rhyolitic tuffs, tuff-breccias, and andesitic flows of Miocene or Pliocene age. Andesitic flows unconformably overlie the rhyolitic rocks. The bentonite was formed by hydrothermal solutions that moved through a major faulted and brecciated zone in the rhyolite volcanic rocks and was partly trapped by the andesitic flows. As a result, two types of bentonite are present. The first type is a very pale orange to almost white bentonite derived from the rhyolite volcanic rocks, and the second type is reddish-brown bentonite derived from the lower part of the andesitic flows. Varying amounts of quartz, cristobalite, and potassium feldspar are present. The physical properties of the bentonite are variable, but one sample shows superior swelling and viscosity properties.

A two-meter-tall monument marking the country's geographical center (103.23 degrees east longitude and 35.33 degrees north latitude) named "Center of the Country" is in Gansu province.
In the middle of the monument are 56 pillars symbolizing the nation's 56 ethnic minorities. In the lower part, upholding a map of China, are pillars representing the nation's 34 municipalities and provinces and autonomous regions. The tower base covers 960,000 square centimeters which stands for China's territory of 960,000 square kilometers.
