Lee’s China Trip, for an International Comparison on Water Conservation Efforts

AWS Manager of Education Lee Cain is currently flying across the US on his way to China to conduct a water conservation comparison between the US and China as part of a fellowship.

Twelve US citizens and twelve Chinese citizens have been selected for this exchange program funded by the US State Department and Lee has been selected to represent the Chesapeake region. The Chinese have already visited sites in the US (Pennsylvania, Maryland, DC, Utah, Arizona and California) to study issues ranging from polluted rivers to securing drinking water.

On March 26th, the Chinese representatives spent the day with AWS learning various ways NGOs can operate to make change, took a trip on the river with Lee and visited the National Arboretum. Lee will be communicating regularly with AWS to report on his findings, so be sure to check the AWS Blog as well as Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/anacostiaws and Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/anacostiaws to follow his progress!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd truly appreciate it.

First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!
