Southwest Cay, part of the Spratly Island chain, is a small island controlled by Vietnam in the hotly contested South China Sea. Southwest Cay was taken by South Vietnam in the 1970s. Vietnam has since built a fortified inlet, an army garrison and a number of support buildings on the island.

Sand, cement, wood and steel are the latest tools in China’s territorial arsenal as it seeks to literally reshape the South China Sea.

Chinese ships carrying construction materials regularly ply the waters near the disputed Spratly Islands, carrying out work that will see new islands rise from the sea, according to Philippine fishermen and officials in the area. 

China’s efforts are reminiscent of Dubai’s Palm resort-style land reclamation, they say.

“They are creating artificial islands that never existed since the creation of the world, like the ones in Dubai,”

Let me first summarize an article that made me cringe at the incompetence of sports doctors before I tell you what really happened to LeBron.

"The science of LeBron's cramping" is an ESPN article written June 8, 2014, by Tom Haberstroh. 

He said LeBron's muscle cramping causes such severe pain and helplessness that it should be called "temporary muscle paralysis." He says you just can't move when it happens, and many athletes are plagued by it. I call it a massive charley horse.

Haberstroh compared LeBron to another player, Justin Hamilton, who had…
