Is China Valves Technology a legitimate company?

China Valves Technology (ticker: CVVT) has plummeted this year largely due to suspicion of fraudulent activity and reporting practices. I have read generic accusations on various websites, but have not seen anything specific. Then I ran across this article supposedly "redeeming" them. http://seekingalpha.com/article/294624-china-valves-technology-online-due-diligence-indicates-legitimate-structure?source=marketwatch So I thought I would ask the metafilter community if they had any knowledge involving this company. Do you believe that this is a legitimate investment or is it just another Chinese fraud? Thank you for your time and expertise. Have a great day.

Buying/Importing from China & India

I want to buy products from Chinese and Indian suppliers to sell on my popular web site. I don’t have any buying experience and I’ve been trying to learn as much as I can. But so far I haven’t been able to find anyone with actual experience who is willing to advise me (and I have tried SCORE). And the advice I’ve found on the net has been too general and often not very credible. I also want to buy merchandise that is a little unusual, like stepper motors and CNC controllers. I’ve used services like DHgate and IndiaMart to identify potential vendors but I have no clue about what to ask and how to word my inquires so I don’t sound completely clueless. At this point I just want to find out if I can buy products at prices that will make selling them worthwhile. And if I do go ahead I want to start with some small orders. Will most manufacturers accept $500 to $1000 orders for items that cost $20-$50? Do you have any other advice you can give me?

How does international shipping work?

I'd like to learn a lot more about shipping things. For instance, manufactured goods from China to the US. What is the process? How is the freight billed? How do you take possession of the goods once they arrive? Who insures the freight being shipped? Is there a good reference for this kind of thing that doesn't pre-suppose familiarity?

So, yeah...Erm...

I live and work in China and, in addition to my regular job, help a fierociously intelligent nineteen-year-old girl with her English twice a week. I don't so much teach her as talk to her and attempt to develop her debating skills. Though not perfect, her English is very good so discussion is often deep with a tendency to take unpredictable twists and turns. We've taken to reading thoughtful articles together and then discussing the main points in addition to noting down any unfamiliar vocabulary. I'd be grateful if Hivemind could suggest some provocative, not overly academic articles that could serve this purpose. I'm running out of ideas. [more inside]

"The Dwarf" Restaurant/ What Do You Know About It?

I purchased a few pieces of vintage reataurantware that came from a restaurant called, "The Dwarf," The body of the the vitreous china is white and the rim is decorated with a green airbrished, stenciled oak leaf design. Inside the rim of the plate, cup and on the saucer are a dwarf wearing what looks to be an acorn hat. He's facing right and is dressed in maroon and green. Beneath him are the words, "The Dwarf." There is some speculation that The Dwarf was the original Chik-Fil-A. May not be the case. Any information about the restaurant will be much appreciated! [more inside]
