GENEVA nike cortez classic uk sale , May 23 (Xinhua) -- Tedros Adhanom, 52-year-old former health minister and foreign minister of Ethiopia, was elected on Tuesday as new Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), UN's health agency.

Adhanom, elected at the ongoing 70th World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva nike cortez classic uk womens , will succeed outgoing Margaret Chan, who has been the WHO's director-general since January, 2007.

Adhanom served as Ethiopia's foreign minister from 2012 to 2016, and minister of health from 2005 to 2012

He has also chaired the Board of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria nike cortez classic uk , the Roll Back Malaria Partnership Board, and co-chaired the Board of the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health.

Adhanom will begin his five-year term on July 1.

In the appointment ceremony, Adhanom reminded that universal health coverage will guide his and WHO's efforts to fight the many health scourges that continue to plague the world.

"All roads lead to universal health coverage. This will be my central priority. At present only about half of the world's people have access to healthcare without impoverishment," he said.

"This needs to improve dramatically. The Sustainable Development Goals give WHO an opportunity to dramatically access to healthcare nike cortez retro uk ," he added.

While acknowledging that these are challenging times for global health, Adhanom pledged not only to serve to the best of his abilities the people of the world, but also to listen to what they say before offering advice.

"I will never forget the people we serve, because all we do is for the people we serve,"Adhanom highlighted nike cortez ultra breathe uk , adding that he will strive to improve the lives of the world's most vulnerable populations.

"I believe in us making a difference through partnership and collaboration, anything is possible. Let's get to work, together for a healthier world," he concluded.

Adhanom beat Britain's David Nabarro and Pakistan's Sania Nishtar after three successive rounds of voting.

In the final ballot, where a simple majority is required to select a winner from the two remaining candidates nike cortez flyknit uk , delegates cast 133 votes in favour of the Ethiopian to Nabarro's 50.

This is the first time an African is appointed as WHO director-general.

ROME, May 18 (Xinhua) -- Italy's Transportation Minister Graziano Delrio said Thursday the government expects several offers will be made for troubled carrier Alitalia, which was placed under state control earlier this month.

The company's three government-appointed official receivers on Wednesday posted a call for expressions of interest from prospective buyers on the Alitalia corporate website. Bids can be made beginning on June 5.

Investors can offer to buy the whole company, restructure it, or purchase bits and pieces of it. The latter option would lead to the flaghship airline founded in 1947 to be dismembered.

"We expect non-binding offers to be made by this summer nike cortez sp uk ," Italian news agency Ansa quoted Delrio as saying.

However, Industry Minister Carlo Calenda cautioned that there's no point in talking about offers before any have been made.

"Alitalia is and has been a very painful saga, especially for Italian taxpayers, who between one thing and another, have put almost 8 billion euros into it over the years nike cortez ultra moire uk ," Calenda told Corriere TV in an interview Thursday.

"It will be a very long and complex process -- let's see what materializes from June 5 onwards."

The Italian government appointed Luigi Gubitosi, Stefano Paleari and Enrico Laghi as official receivers after a court declared Alitalia insolvent on May 11.

It also extended the airline a 600-million-euro bridge loan to keep Alitalia flying for six months, by which time it must find a buyer.

In April, over 60 percent of Alitalia employees voted against the former management's turnaround plan, prompting government to warn it would not step in to nationalize the chronically loss-making carrier.

Alitalia has an operating fleet of 122 planes and employs just over 12 ,000 people worldwide, including flight, ground crews and administrative staff.

The Italian carrier flies to 26 domestic and 68 international destinations, with 4,200 weekly flights and 144 routes cheap nike cortez uk , according to its website.

It was rescued in 2015 by United Arab Emirates carrier Etihad, which bought a stake of 49 percent. Italian shareholders led by UniCredit and Intesa Sanpaolo banks hold the remaining 51 percent.

SINGAPORE Mens Nike NSW Cortez Flyknit Black Gold Shoes UK , Jan. 7 (Xinhua) -- A Singapore man was jailed four months on Wednesday for impersonating a police officer in a bid to get contact details of prostitutes.

Yusri Abdul Wahab conducted checks on sex workers in a district in Singapore on May 7 last year.

He wanted to get the contact details of the sex workers so that he would hopefully be able to call back for cheap sex at a later date, local daily the Straits Times reported.

He flashed a makeshift police pass, and asked to see the work permits of the prostitutes.

He made a show of checking the documents, all the while speaking into his earpiece and pretending to speak to a "colleague. "

Someone grew suspicious, and called the police.

His total jail term comes to eight months Nike Classic Cortez SP Nylon Grey White UK , after including punishment for stealing camera equipment during his real job as a pest control officer.

No restitution has been made for the thefts, which involved almost 32,000 Singapore dollars (24,060 U.S. dollars) of items and got the suspect sacked.

These were committed on four occasions between January and May last year.

Yusri came up with the policeman ruse after taking medical leave from his real job. The court heard he had been inspired by a television show, in which a character had hatched a similar ploy.

The man bought police paraphernalia from a shopping center Nike Classic Cortez SP Nylon Olive Green Brown UK , including a leather pass holder and various logos to attach to his polo T-shirt. He had a photograph of himself taken and inserted it into the pass holder.

District Judge Low Wee Ping said Yusri's impersonation was " shocking".

Yusri pleaded guilty to three charges in all, with another two taken into consideration. For impersonating a police officer, he could have been jailed for up to two years and fined.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- F1 US Grand Prix pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton said he's not expecting to win the yearending title in Austin on Sunday, adding that he expects the battle for the 2017 drivers' crown to go down to the wire.

The Mercedes star Nike Cortez Ultra Moire Black White UK , who claimed the pole position in Saturday's qualifying, entered the weekend 59 points clear of Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel in the standings, and will seal a fourth world title if he claims victory and the German finishes the race sixth or lower.

However, with Vettel starting alongside him on the front row and expected to mount a serious challenge for victory, Hamilton said the thought of clinching the crown is not on his agenda.

"It's a bit like a game of chess Nike Cortez Ultra Moire Summit White Black UK ," the Briton said. "Obviously right now it's checkmate but there's still a long, long way to go," said Hamilton.

"There's still a hundred points available. Sebastian and his team are going to be working as hard as they can, as are we. Who knows? It's going to go to the wire I still think.

"In the next four races, I think Ferrari is going to give it a great shot and I'm going to do my utmost to try and defend.

"I want to win these races nike air presto essential uk , that's what I'm working towards. In winning races, points come and championships are won so that's what I'm here to do.

For Vettel, the four times F1 winner, will push hard for this season's title.

"I think we have to win and then we see what happens. Obviously we are not in the position that we would like to be, but still we have a chance nike air presto ultra flyknit uk , so we go for that and it's pretty straightforward. And I don't see why the next four races we shouldn't have the package to win. So we start tomorrow."

Vettel has endured a far from ideal weekend so far with problems in running his free practice, but he felt upbeat about the future competitions.

"As the season progresses everybody gets better in terms of reading the sessions, understanding the tyres so I don't think we're in any weaker position. It would have been nice to do more laps but the little laps that I had this morning were fine," said Vettel.

BAGHDAD, Feb. 22 (Xinhua) -- Iraqi paramilitary units, known as Hashd Shaabi, freed two villages from Islamic State (IS) militants near the town of Tal Afar on Wednesday, while Iraqi aircraft bombarded IS targets in west of the city of Mosul, the Iraqi military said.

The predominantly Shiite units freed the villages of Sharia and Ain-Tlawi in the west of Tal Afar, some 70 km west of Mosul, after sporadic clashes with IS militants, leaving 47 of them killed and destroying 13 booby-trapped cars, a statement from the Hashd Shaabi said.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi F-16 jet fighters carried out six airstrikes on IS positions in and near the IS-held town, destroying four car bomb-making sites and killing 20 militants at a safe house.

The airstrikes also killed dozens more of IS militants at two villages in west of Mosul, Lieutenant General Abdul-Amir Yarallah from the Joint Operations Command said in another statement.

The attacks came as the Iraqi security forces are advancing toward the fringes of the western side of Mosul to drive out IS militants from their last major stronghold in Iraq.

Two days ago, the federal police forces and Counter-Terrorism Service freed the hill of Albu Saif, just south of Mosul airport, after clashes with the IS militants.

The recapture of the strategic hill of Albu Saif is crucial for the Iraqi forces, as the area will give the troops the ability to command IS positions in the southern neighborhoods and inside the airport located on Mosul's southern outskirts.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced on Sunday the start of an offensive to drive extremist .

1. Environmental Protection law

China's revised Environmental Protection Law came into effect on Jan 1 this year, bringing with it heavier punishments.

The revision, adopted and approved by the National People's Congress on April 24, 2014, is the first revision in 25 years.

It increased the responsibility of local governments to deal with environmental problems and gives them unprecedented power.

Polluters will also be made to pay accumulating fines if they fail to rectify violations Homme Nike Cortez Classic Nylon Deep Bleu Blanche Chaussures Pas Cher , making the revised law stricter than previous versions. In the past, enterprises received a one-off fine.

The policy takes a zero tolerance approach. Local officials may be demoted or sacked for misconduct, including hiding offenses, falsifying data, failing to publicize environmental data, and not giving closure orders to enterprises that illegally discharge pollutants.

2. Air

China's environment watchdog issued its most comprehensive and toughest plan in July 2013 to control and in some regions reduce air pollution by the year 2017, setting stricter limits on the levels of PM 2.5 particles.

The Air Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan (2013-17) is backed by 1,700 billion yuan ($277 billion) in total investments from the central government.

The plan specifically targets North China Femme Nike Cortez Ultra Breathe Woven Mesh Noir Chaussures Pas Cher , particularly Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province. The plan's goal by 2017 is for a 25 percent reduction in air emissions from 2012 levels in that region.

The smog problem has never received so much attention.

In March a privately sponsored documentary on smog, Under the Dome, went viral online in China. It was viewed more than 300 million times within five days.

Ministry of Environment Protection statistics show a big drop in PM 2.5 readings and polluted days in a year since the regulations were put in action. Factories with illegal heavy pollution have been shut down and traffic controls practiced more often. Electric vehicles are promoted r amid the anti-pollution environment. Stations have also been built in more than 160 cities to monitor smog levels.

3. Water

China released an Action Plan for Water Pollution Prevention and Control on April 16 this year Homme Nike NSW Cortez Flyknit Blanche Rouge Chaussures Pas Cher , with a 2 trillion yuan ($320 billion) package in place, to tackle serious water pollution, aiming to intensify government efforts to reduce emissions of pollutants and to protect drinking water safety .

It said China will see a better water environment with reduced pollution for both surface and groundwater, safer drinking water and an improved coastal environment by 2020.

By 2020, 70 percent of the water quality in the seven major river basins, including the Yangtze and Yellow rivers Homme Nike NSW Cortez Flyknit Noir Blanche Chaussures Pas Cher , will be in the top two quality levels, rising to 75 percent by 2030.

4. Soil

China is developing an action plan for soil pollution prevention and control, which may be released next year. The Ministry of Environmental Protection is also close to issuing a new soil environmental monitoring standard to replace a 20-year-old outdated version.

The new standard paves the way for the introduction of the long awaited action Plan because it provides an array of technical benchmarks for future law enforcement.

Soil pollution is less likely to be noticed compared to air or water contaminations. But the hidden threat comes with a very high level of destruction to the environment. Pollution through farm chemicals such as pesticides Nike Classic Cortez SP Nylon Olive Verte Marron Pas Cher , as well as organic pollutants and heavy metal are endangering human health in many parts of China. The most severe cases of pollution in the country were those caused by industrial emissions that release large amounts of heavy metals including cadmium, arsenic, chromium and lead.

5. Clean energy

China's spending on renewable energy during the current 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-15) will reach 1.8 trillion yuan ($294 billion) in addition to a further 2.3 trillion yuan being spent on energy saving and reducing emissions, according to Xie Zhenhua, then deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission in 2013.

China vows it will reduce its carbon emissions per unit of GDP by about 40 to 45 percent by 2020 from the 2005 level and raise its non-fossil energy consumption percentage to 15 percent of the primary energy mix.

China retained its global top spot for clean energy investment in 2014, with surging demand especially in both solar and wind. According to The Bloomberg New Energy Finance report Nike Classic Cortez SP Nylon Grise Blanche Pas Cher , the country's investment in clean energy last year hit a record $89.5 billion, a 32 percent rise on 2013, accounting for about 29 percent of the world's total. By the end of 2014, China had installed 430 million kilowatts in total renewable energy power generation,

In the coming years, China is on track to launch more nuclear power projects Nike Classic Cortez SP Nylon Noir Blanche Pas Cher , which were suspended following the nuclear power plant disaster in Fukushima, Japan in 2011. The country is also drawing up regulations to better protect the safe use of nuclear energy.

BEIJING nike cortez retro pas cher , Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- After recording a 111-109 win, Qingdao became the first team to have beaten leaders Liaoning in 2014-15 Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) league on Friday, snapping the latter's 17-game winning streak, best in their franchise history.

Qingdao's foreign trio, Justin Dentmon nike cortez ultra breathe pas cher homme , Michael Harris and Hamed Ehadadi, combined for 73 points.

Qingdao's Luo Xudong hit a jumper to put his team ahead 111-109 with 4.3 seconds to go, while Liaoning still had the chance to drag the game into overtime, as their pillar post player Han Dejun was fouled by his counterpart Hamed Ehadadi with 1.1 seconds remaining.

However, Han missed the first free throw. As he tried to get a rebound from the second intentional missed shot nike cortez ultra breathe pas cher , Hamed Ehadadi tipped the ball away from the post to secure the win.

"The first half was to blame for the loss, when we had poor defense and didn't concentrate a lot," said Guo Shiqiang, Liaoning's head coach.

Lester Hudson, last season's MVP nike cortez flyknit pas cher femme , finished with game-high 44 points, 13 rebounds and eight steals for Liaoning. Han Dejun added 26.

Thanks to five players' double-digit points, runner-up Guangdong welcomed their 7th straight win after crushing over Zhejiang 133-116.

Yi Jianlian led Guangdong players with 32 points. Will Bynum and Chris Daniels helped with 25 and 17 points respectively.

After trailing by 36-35 as the first quarter ran out, Guangdong made a strong comeback midway through the second period, as Bynum's three-pointers gave them a double-figure margin.

ANKARA, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- Turkish football giant Besiktas faces a crisis ahead of its match with Arsenal on Tuesday, after UEFA officials removed a number of banners of the fan group from the Ataturk Olympic Stadium nike roshe cortez nm sp pas cher , local Daily News reported on Tuesday.

The reason given is that the letter ""A"" in the group's logo symbolizes anarchism and implies a political message.

A gigantic banner that took days to produce by Besiktas fans is among a number of banners confiscated by UEFA officials.

This is not the first banner incident for Besiktas. In 2009, prior to a match with Manchester United, Carsi's banners were confiscated for the same reason.

" Leadership and Sports are not often seen as similar or overlapping topics. What does a CEO have in common with a golf player? you may ask in puzzlement. I wouldn t be surprised the common perception of leadership is that it is an elite skill only reserved for top businessmen and sly politicians.

From what I have seen in industry across the UK however, this simply isn t true. Leadership is a trait that we all possess to some degree, and can all vastly improve upon to create a huge change in our performance and success. This increase in performance is not limited to officework nike cortez sp pas cher homme , it also extends to sports in a significant way. Increase your leadership skills will increase your sporting skill for two reasons.

1. The demand for leadership skills is inherent in all team sports.

Whether you play football or badminton, basketball or dodgeball you appreciate that solid teamwork is at the heart of a good performance, and often a good team dynamic can help a side turnaround a game and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

Leadership and teamwork are tightly connected hence if you partake in leadership development, and learn how to effectively influence and inspire your fellow players your value to your sports team will increase several fold.

2. A true leader can learn from others far more quickly than a follower . While a follower can match a team mates every move, because they fail to understand the reasons behind why players act how they do nike cortez sp pas cher , they will not be able to react properly in game and their performance will be lacking.

A leader of the sports team will inherently be a good listener and will begin to understand not just the technical abilities of their co players, but also the motivation behind them. Being able to receive this wider range of knowledge and experience from playing will ensure that leaders will over time pick up the best set of sports skills.

So there you have it why a concept as abstract as leadership development, could have a direct impact on your football technique. It would be interesting to also hear your thoughts on the subject.

Do you also see more than mere coincidence in the fact that pupils most abled at sports are often those with the most confidence and influence. I purport that their leadership traits cause their sporting talents and disagree that merely being good at a sport will increase your confidence and ability to lead. Causation certainly flows both ways to an extent but from my experience I believe that leadership development should take the most credit for the benefits.

So how can you start working to improve your leadership skills? How can start leadership development? Where you can discover more about different leadership styles? Well the internet is probably your best place to begin! Infomation here is free and plentiful, just ensure that you visit only trusted resources, because many conflicting opinions are often given on the subject and you want to hear the reputable side of the story.

BEIJING nike cortez ultra moire pas cher blanche , Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- China's economic planner has approved 8 fixed-asset investment (FAI) projects with combined investment totaling 10.76 billion yuan (about 1.65 billion U.S. dollars) in August.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has announced his engagement to Jerry Hall, the American actress and former supermodel who had a long-time relationship with Mick Jagger.

Murdoch, 84, and Hall, 59 Cheap Nike Air VaporMax 2.0 White/Black Shoes , placed a classified ad Monday in the Births, Marriages and Deaths section of the Times newspaper, which is owned by Murdoch's News Corporation.

Murdoch, the executive chairman of News Corporation, and Hall have been dating since late summer after being introduced by one of Murdoch's sisters and his niece in his native Australia, the Times reported in a story posted online. They made their relationship public in October when they appeared together at the Rugby World Cup Final in London and got engaged last weekend while attending the Golden Globes awards in Los Angeles.

""They have loved these past months together Cheap Women's Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2.0 Hot Punch Grey , are thrilled to be getting married and excited about their future,"" a spokesperson for the Murdoch family told the Times.

Murdoch has six children from his three previous marriages. He was married to Patricia Booker, an Australian, and then to Scottish-born journalist Anna Torv. He later married Chinese-born Wendi Deng, whom he divorced in 2013.

Hall, a Texas native Cheap Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2.0 Dusty Cactus Black , moved to Paris as a teenager to pursue a modeling career. She was one of the most photographed supermodels in the 1970s and dated Roxy Music's lead singer Bryan Ferry. She entered a long-term relationship with the Rolling stones frontman in the late 1970s.

Hall and Jagger had an unofficial private Hindu marriage ceremony in Bali, Indonesia, in 1990, but during divorce proceedings in 1999 a British court declared the marriage invalid.


CHICAGO, March 3 (Xinhua) -- A man was arrested on Friday in the state of Missouri in connection with recent threats targeting Jewish community centers (JCCs) across the United States, according to local media reports on Friday.

Juan Thompson, 31, is accused of what federal prosecutors called a "campaign to harass and intimidate."

He is charged in New York with cyberstalking a New York City woman by communicating threats in the woman's name. Prosecutors said Thompson appears to have made those threats "as part of a sustained campaign to harass and intimidate" the woman after their romantic relationship ended.

According to a federal complaint, Thompson dated the woman until last summer, when they broke up. The following day, her boss received an email purporting to be from a national news organization saying that she'd been pulled over for drunken driving.

The harassment got worse from there, federal officials said. The Anti-Defamation League received an email on Feb. 21 that said she was behind the bomb threats to JCCs and there'd be more the next day. On Feb. 22, it received a phoned-in bomb threat.

He also claimed she was responsible for placing a bomb in a Jewish center in Dallas, and he also emailed a JCC in San Diego saying she wanted to "kill as many Jews asap."

New York City Police Commissioner James O'Neill confirmed Thompson's arrest and said, "The defendant caused havoc, expending hundreds of hours of police and law enforcement resources to respond and investigate these threats. We will continue to pursue those who pedal fear, making false claims about serious crimes."

LOS ANGELES — Oscar winner, take two.

Barry Jenkins' "Moonlight" — not, as it turned out Cheap Men's Nike Air Vapormax 2 Flyknit Laser Orange Black , "La La Land" — won best picture at the Academy Awards in a historic Oscar upset and an unprecedented fiasco that saw one winner swapped for another while the "La La Land" producers were in mid-speech.

Presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway apparently took the wrong envelope — the one for best actress winner Emma Stone — onto the stage. When they realized the mistake, representatives for ballot tabulators Price Waterhouse Coopers raced onstage to try to stop the acceptance speech.

But backstage, Stone said she was holding her winning envelope at the time. "I think everyone's in a state of confusion still," said Stone. Later the actress, who pledged her deep love of "Moonlight," added Cheap Nike Air VaporMax Moc 2 University Red Women's , "Is that the craziest Oscar moment of all time? Cool!" Kenneth Lonergan, who won best screenplay for his "Manchester by the Sea," joked to reporters, "It turned out that we actually won best picture."

It was, nevertheless, a shocking upset considering that "La La Land" came in with 14 nominations Cheap Women's Nike Air VaporMax 2.0 Light Cream , a record that tied it with "Titanic" and "All About Eve." Barry Jenkins' tender, bathed-in-blue coming-of-age drama, made for just $1.5 million, is an unusually small Oscar winner. Having made just over $22 million as of Sunday at the box office, it's one of the lowest grossing best-picture winners ever — but also one of the most critically adored.

"Even in my dreams this cannot be true," said an astonished Jenkins Cheap Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra All White , once he reached the stage. "Moonlight," released by indie distributor A24, also had some major muscle behind it, including Brad Pitt's Plan B, which also backed the 2015 winner "12 Years a Slave."

Host Jimmy Kimmel had come forward to inform the cast that "Moonlight" had indeed won, showing the inside of the envelope as proof. "I knew I would screw this up Cheap Men's Black Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra Shoes ," said Kimmel, a first-time host.

Producer Jordan Horwitz then graciously passed his statue to the "Moonlight" producers. "I noticed the commotion that was happening and I thought that something strange had occurred," Jenkins said backstage. "The last 2.

WELLINGTON, July 26 (Xinhua) -- A surge in exports to China helped New Zealand maintain an overall trade surplus last month, the government statistics agency said Tuesday.

China led the way in New Zealand's rising exports, with goods to China increasing by 18 percent, or 125 million NZ dollars (87.47 million U.S. dollars), from June last year.

The increase in exports was led by rises in logs, wood, and wood articles, kiwifruit, dairy products and food preparations for infant use, according to Statistics New Zealand.

New Zealand had a trade surplus of 127 million NZ dollars (88.96 million U.S. dollars), or 3 percent of exports, in June.

That compared with a deficit of 182 million NZ dollars (127.49 million U.S. dollars) in June last year.

The agency noted the value of kiwifruit exports had soared by 47 percent year on year to reach 331 million NZ dollars (231.86 million U.S. dollars), led by demand from China and Japan.

The quantities of kiwifruit exported were up 32 percent.

"Export values of kiwifruit for the months of May and June 2016 are the two highest on record," international statistics senior manager Jason Attewell said in a statement.

"Annual kiwifruit exports for the June 2016 year also set a new record - 1.7 billion NZ dollars (1.19 billion U.S. dollars) - up 41 percent from the previous June year."

LAGOS, July 15 (Xinhua) -- Development of agriculture remains the only solution for the economic downturn that Nigeria is going through, a state governor said Friday.

The culture of free money has gone forever in Nigeria, Rauf Aregbesola, the governor of southwest state of Osun said at a meeting with Farmers' Association in the state.

He said for Nigeria to come out of its current economic doldrums, there must be a total shift from oil money, which in effect has contributed to total neglect of agriculture.

"Today, we have seen the effect of rent economy that the country has been running for the past half a century," he added.

"With the frittering away of the nation's resources by the immediate past government and the drastic reduction of crude oil price at the international market, the country's economy just went into recession," he said.

"Agriculture used to be our economic mainstay during and shortly after independence," Aregbesola told his audience.

He promised that government would do everything within its power and resources to assist in boosting farmers' production and harvesting capacity.

The governor added that government would continue to provide soft loans as well as make chemicals and fertilizer available to the farmers at subsidized rate.

According to him, farming is the backbone of any strong and developed nation.

"We must stop our heavy reliance on imported foods. We should be able to feed ourselves as a nation," Aregbesola said.

"More than ever before, our government is ready to help farmers in the state in all areas they want to practice, be it food or cash crop, poultry and the rest," the governor told his audience. Enditem

BEIJING, Dec. 27 (Xinhua) -- Twenty years ago, Yang Ga'nyu, an ordinary farmer woman in a poverty-stricken mountain village, drew a train on the wall of her home, hoping that one day she could travel by train to see the outside world.

Her dream came true on Monday as Minxian-Guangyuan section of Lanzhou-Chongqing railway was put into service, linking her hometown with more developed regions.

Yang's case is far from unique: China has increased efforts to build infrastructure in less-developed areas to help alleviate poverty and improve people's livelihoods.

Aiming to eliminate poverty by 2020, China has made huge strides in poverty reduction. The country is on track to achieve the government's target of lifting 10 million people out of poverty this year.

Government spending on poverty hit a record high this year, exceeding 100 billion yuan (about 14.5 billion U.S. dollars) for the first time.

The central budget allocated 66.7 billion yuan for poverty reduction this year, up 43.4 percent year on year, while provincial government allocation rose more than 50 percent to top 40 billion yuan.

Industrial development is at the heart of government work as it is seen as key to alleviating poverty.

With 30 million people set to rise out of poverty by 2020 through industrial development, relocation has also been highlighted this year. Hundreds of impoverished counties now have formal arrangements for relocation, with many underway.

Tuition fees and other expenses have been waived for senior high school students from poo.

CHANGSHA Heren Nike Air Max 97 Zwart Goud Schoenen Kopen Sale , Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Five suspects have been arrested for dumping toxic waste in central China's Hunan Province, local police said Wednesday.

LONDON, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Confucius Institute for Traditional Chinese Medicine (CITCM), the first and largest of its kind in the world Nike Air Presto Qs Wit Schoenen Kopen Sale , celebrated its anniversary on Tuesday after a decade of painstaking efforts in promoting cultural exchanges between China and Britain.

At the celebration held at London South Bank University, pupils from Highgate Primary School sang the Manual of Youth by TFBoys, a popular boy band in China. Their standard Mandarin and excellent performance won loud applause from the audience.

Xu Yinong, director of the CITCM, told Xinhua that the institute has been working with local schools for 10 years and has established more than 70 long-standing partnerships.

One of the schools is Highgate Primary School Nike Air Presto High Zwart Heren Schoenen Kopen Sale , which has been working with CITCM since 2011 and was awarded Confucius Classroom status after four years of profound commitment to Mandarin teaching, said Xu. It opened in 2017 a spectacular Chinese classroom that promises to further enhance the Mandarin learning experience for students and teachers.

"We look forward to continuing our work with Highgate and celebrating a similar level of success with other schools in London," said the director.

Founded in 2007, the CITCM now has a total of 68 Hanban volunteers and 32 Hanban teachers. Hanban is the colloquial abbreviation for the Office of Chinese Language Council International, which is affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Education and charged with cultivating knowledge and interest in the Chinese language and culture around the world.

"Initially Nike Roshe Cortez NM SP Schoenen Wit Zwart Kopen Sale , many partner schools only required clubs, cultural activities and roadshows. However, over the last two years, we have been engaged in enhancing the outcome of the teaching program by embedding Mandarin in the curriculum. As a result of our effort, a total of 42 schools have successfully embedded Mandarin in their curriculum Nike Roshe Cortez NM SP Schoenen Zwart Wit Kopen Sale ," Xu said.

The CITCM also offers a series of carefully designed services including Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) courses, summer trips to China and scholarship programs. These initiatives have greatly enhanced the students' overall learning experience and academic development.

Yessica Lerma, a CITCM student, said she is grateful to the institute for heightening her academic performance by introducing the marvels of the Chinese language and culture.

"The knowledge gained through CITCM has given me the confidence to apply for and successfully obtain a highly prestigious job. I will be forever grateful for all the help and support in enhancing my university experience and personal academic development," she said.

The CITCM is the first Confucius Institute in the world to have a specialized focus on traditional Chinese medicine. It offers an integrated BSc and Master course in acupuncture Nike Cortez Retro Wit Zwart Schoenen Kopen Sale , whose practical aspects of training can be conducted in the institute's own on-site clinics.

"Through the course, students can build a strong foundation in acupuncture's theory and application, gain extensive clinical experience and learn about the Chinese language and culture. The students will leave with a thorough understanding of Western biomedical science and research methodologies to be reflective, professional practitioners", said Xu.

Professor Paul Ivey Nike Cortez Retro Rood Schoenen Kopen Sale , pro-vice-chancellor of the London South Bank University, also spoke highly of the CITCM and considers it indispensable to the university in the teaching of Chinese medicine and Mandarin, among others.

"Ten years ago, some very brave and creative people made a decision to create Confucius Institute for Traditional Chinese Medicine here at London South Bank University. Small steps, very small steps. But over the years Heren Nike NSW Cortez Flyknit Blauw Wit Schoenen Kopen Sale , through mutual trust and hard work, we are able to create what is now probably the largest Confucius Institute in the world," Ivey said.

"We have over 100 teachers here, and they are fantastic. They are very very strong. They are fantastic young people who really have an international outlook on life. They are teaching Mandarin to some 50,000 school children in London Heren Nike NSW Cortez Flyknit Zwart Wit Schoenen Kopen Sale ," said the professor.

ANTANANARIVO, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) has received 1,000 tons of foods to help victims of severe food insecurity in southern Madagasca.


NANJING vans old skool wit , July 2 (Xinhua) -- At a park in east China's Nanjing city, 200 pigs, 2,000 chickens and innumerable aquatic creatures in a 15 hectare lake have a very special job to do: predicting earthquakes.

The behavior of the park's residents is closely monitored by cameras all over the park and reports are made twice a day to the city earthquake bureau. Whenever unusual behavior is reported -- chickens flying to the trees, pigs having trouble sleeping well vans old skool zwart dames kopen , fish jumping in shoals, toads heading for the hills -- staff from Nanjing earthquake bureau will come to establish if they are pre-seismic cues.

Banqiao Eco-park is just one of seven animal alert stations, mostly farms and ponds, monitored by Nanjing earthquake bureau. The bureau set up these monitoring stations last year to try to improve the city's ability to predict earthquakes and take advance action.

Earthquake forecasters in these monitoring stations are a far cry from the scientists armed with advanced gizmos and complex equations one might expect, and include chicken vans old skool zwart dames , deer, ducks, geese, monkeys, pigeons vans old skool zwart , pigs and even kangaroos.

At least three kinds of animals in the earthquake stations should corroborate each other when bizarre behavior occurs, said Zhao Bing, head of Nanjing earthquake monitoring. The stations should also be far from factories and mines to avoid interference.

The belief that animals can predict earthquakes has been around for a long time. In 373 B.C. historians recorded that the animals deserted the Greek city of Helike just days before a devastating quake. Before China's Tangshan earthquake in 1976, abnormal animal behavior was also reported.

No one knows exactly how some animals appear to know in advance about some earthquakes, but their more keen senses may partly explain the strange phenomenon.

According to research published earlier this year in the journal Physics and Chemistry of the Earth vans old skool kopen sale , wild animals may be more sensitive to positive ions generated in large quantities when rocks below the earth's surface are stressed in the build-up to an earthquake.

The bureau has plans to set up seven more animal stations this year.


WASHINGTON, Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- In her first testimony to the Congress, U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen reiterated central bank's plan to taper its stimulus exit despite recent weakness in the economy.

The current economic situation and outlook, as well as the monetary policy, were the main focus of the hearing held twice a year.

Yellen told lawmakers she expected "a great deal of continuity" in the central bank's monetary policy vans old skool kopen , saying that she served on the Fed policy-setting committee as the bank formulated its current policy strategy and she strongly supported that strategy.

Yellen, 67, took the oath of office to lead the Federal Reserve System on Feb. 3, succeeding Ben Bernanke, who stepped down after eight turbulent years. She was previously the Fed's vice Chair.

In the public debut in her new role vans classic slip on kopen sale , Yellen said while the economy gained steam at the end of 2013, recovery in the U.S. labor market was "far from complete," underscoring the importance of considering more than just the unemployment rate when evaluating the conditions of the labor market.

Her point of keeping an eye on wider range of labor indicators is particularly important as the unemployment rate, now at 6.6 percent, is near the 6.5 percent threshold the Fed once identified as the level that would need to be reached before officials would consider a hike in the interest rates.

"If coming information broadly supports the Committee's expectation of ongoing improvement in labor market conditions and inflation moving back toward its long-run objective vans classic slip on kopen , the Committee will likely reduce the pace of asset purchases in further measured steps at future meetings," Yellen indicated steady pullback in Fed stimulus, referring to the Federal Open Market Committee, which sets monetary policy.

While admitting she was "surprised" by the two recent jobs reports that showed the pace of job creation running under what she had expected, Yellen cautioned against jumping to conclusions of the longer trend. She told the Congress that the Fed needs to see a "notable change" in the economic outlook to consider pausing its withdrawal of stimulus.

The Fed trimmed its monthly purchases of Treasury and mortgage- backed securities by a total of 10 billion dollars in both December and January vans slip on zwart kopen , citing strengthening economy and continued improvement in the labor market.

The Fed policymakers have suggested they would continue to reduce the bond buying, which now totals 65 billion dollars a month, at a similar pace at each Fed meeting and end it by the end of 2014, provided the economy develops generally in line with expectations.

Yellen also highlighted the Fed's financial regulatory role, saying that the work of making the financial system more robust " has not yet been completed."

HELSINKI, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- A Finnish feasibility study published on Friday considered that a high volume telecommunication cable along the Northeast Passage in the Arctic Sea, connecting Asia and Europe, would be both politically and technologically viable.

The report said key countries, including Russia, China, Japan and Norway, would be interested in being involved in the project.

The study underlined that the project, if carried out, needs to be neutral towards the participating countries and would have to provide equal benefits for everyone involved.

The study was led by former Finnish prime minister Paavo Lipponen, who, after his active political career, has had consultancy roles in international projects such as the Baltic gas pipeline.

He was assigned by the Finnish government to investigate the feasibility of the arctic cable last May. Lipponen carried out the probe together with.


LUOYANG Nike Cortez Classic Nylon Noir Blanche Chaussures Pas Cher , China, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Li Xiaoxu became hero for China as he hit a critical three-pointer with 6.3 seconds remaining to help the hosts edge Russia 62-60, tasting their second straight victory in 2014 Stankovic Continental Cup here on Friday.

Li finished with five points. Zhou Peng and Wang Zhelin shared team-high 12 points.

""There was no opportunity for us in the post then. My teammate gave me a fantastic pass and I hit it. Thanks for their trust,"" said Li.

Denis Zakharov's one of two free throws gave the visitors a 60-59 lead at the dying time, before Li ignited the crowds with the crucial three.

""This game was of great importance for us in terms of experience. Our players did well on defense, while losing too many rebounds to the opponents Nike Cortez Classic Nylon PRM Royal Bleu Chaussures Pas Cher ,"" said China's head coach Gong Luming.

Wang Zhelin had a brilliant fastbreak layup after the tip-off, and Zhou Peng shone with a single-quarter 11 points, but the hosts found it hard to pull away due to a five-rebound deficit (2-7). The two teams tied at 17 after the first quarter.

China was outrebounded 18-9 in the first half, while maintaining a narrow one-point lead on 64% shooting percentage. China began the third period with a 6-2 run, forcing the opponents into a timeout, and they led by 48-45 as the third quarter ran out.

""We made some mistakes both in offense and defense Homme Nike Cortez Classic Nylon Deep Bleu Blanche Chaussures Pas Cher , especially in defense against their last shot,"" Russia's head coach Vasily Karasev said.

Aleksandr Gudumak and Denis Zakharov had 12 and 10 respectively for Russia.

China's next opponent will be Slovenia, who routed Angola 79-58 in an earlier match on Friday.

NORTH SINAI, Egypt, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's army on Thursday killed 15 suspected militants in a security raid and arrested 25 others suspected of being members of the extremist Sinai-based Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis group, security source told Xinhua.

The armed forces managed to besiege big numbers of the Bayt al- Maqdis members in southern Rafah city Nike Cortez Ultra Breathe Woven Mesh Rouge Noir Chaussures Pas Cher , and raided the strongholds of the group's leaders at al-Mahdiah, Naga Shabanah, and al-Agra villages, near Egypt's borders with Israel, the security source told reporters on the condition of anonymity.

""Army tanks shelled six vehicles full of weapons,"" the source said Femme Nike Cortez Ultra Breathe Woven Mesh Noir Chaussures Pas Cher , adding that two leading members in the group, Youssif abou- Ayat and Saed abo-Farih, who mastered Rafah massacres against security forces, were among the dead.

On Wednesday, the army killed another seven militants belonging to the same group in clashes in Sheikh Zuwid city and foiled an attempt to bomb two cars of the armed forces.

Since August, nearly 90 militants suspected of attacking police and army premises have been killed Homme Nike NSW Cortez Flyknit Blanche Rouge Chaussures Pas Cher , the source said.

North Sinai has been the scene of violent attacks by Islamist militants since the 2011 protests that toppled former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.

The attacks by Islamist militants targeting the police and the military has increased after the ouster of Islamist ex-President Mohamed Morsi last year. According to interior ministry reports, more than 500 policemen and soldiers have been killed in bombing and shooting since last August.

In response, the army, in coordination with the police, has launched a massive security campaign in the restive Sinai Peninsula, where the extremist attacks against security forces have escalated.

The government has held the Muslim Brotherhood responsible for the attacks against security forces Homme Nike NSW Cortez Flyknit Noir Blanche Chaussures Pas Cher , but the Islamist group has repeatedly denied this claim.

" There芒鈧劉s no doubt that thyroid disease is on the rise. Now the question is why? The reason your weight loss attempts might not be working is because your weight loss canary might be suffering芒鈧et me explain. From the research I芒鈧劉ve reviewed and the patients I芒鈧劉ve seen in the last 20 years, it芒鈧劉s clear to me that the thyroid gland is your body芒鈧劉s own yellow canary. It芒鈧劉s sensitive to many different influences芒鈧€漼our diet, your lifestyle, and the world around you. And all of these influences can affect how well your thyroid functions. Remember how miners used to detect toxic methane gas and carbon monoxide? They sent bright yellow canaries into the mines. Canaries are highly sensitive to these gasses芒鈧€漵o much so that they die when exposed to them. Their deaths served as a warning system for miners so they do not enter and become exposed to poisonous air. So, it芒鈧劉s not surprising that as we eat more toxic foods and are increasingly exposed to pollution, petrochemical and industrial wastes Nike Classic Cortez SP Nylon Olive Verte Marron Pas Cher , and heavy metals that thyroid problems have also skyrocketed. In fact, more than 20 percent of women and 10 percent of men in the United States have thyroid dysfunctions芒鈧€漚nd half of them don芒鈧劉t even know it! But exactly howdoes your environment affect your thyroid? We now have substantial research to demonstrate that environmental chemicals have a direct impact on the thyroid gland. It芒鈧劉s clear that PCBs and other industrial petrochemical toxins can lower thyroid function, as well as other pollutants such as chlorine, fluoride, and bromide. Since the thyroid produces hormones that manage your metabolism, anything that affects your thyroid will ultimately affect your metabolism. In fact Nike Classic Cortez SP Nylon Grise Blanche Pas Cher , there芒鈧劉s evidence that toxins boost the excretion of thyroid hormones, leaving you with less of this hormone to control your metabolism芒鈧€漚nd a decreased ability to burn fat.

WASHINGTON Mujer Adidas Originals Superstar 80s Negras Baratas , June 7 (Xinhua) -- In the first quarter of 2015, nearly 16 percent of Americans reported that in the past 12 months they had suffered from food insecurity, among which the blacks took up a large proportion, a new Gallup poll showed.

Among most key demographic groups, Americans in the age group 30-49 are most vulnerable to food crisis in the country, with 18.9 percent of people reporting that they had struggled to afford food in the past 12 months Adidas Originals Superstar 80s Metal Toe Doradas Foil Baratas , according to the Gallup poll released on Friday.

About 18 percent of the country's young generation also reported a struggle to tackle food crisis, it showed.

In terms of race, African-Americans are more than twice as likely as whites to report experiencing difficulty affording food, with 27 percent of them reporting such a struggle.

African-Americans have long been disproportionately affected by poverty and food insecurity. According to Feeding America, a U.S. organization dedicated to fighting hunger in the country, they are the most vulnerable group to food insecurity in the country.

Earlier this year Mujer Adidas Originals Superstar Lotus Print Blancas Flower Baratas , a study by Bread for the World, a movement in the United States to end hunger, also depicted a bleak reality for the country's African-American community.

According to the study, though a decline in official unemployment rates during 2014 was responsible for a reduction in hunger in the country, African-Americans continue to experience jobless rates twice as high as the national average.

"This economic inequality manifests itself in disproportionately higher rates of hunger and poverty among communities of color, which affects children in particular Adidas Originals Superstar 2 Print Negras Blancas Baratas ," said the report.

Data showed that some 27.6 percent of African-Americans are considered to be living under the poverty line, and nearly 39 percent of those under 18 and 42.7 percent of children below five live in poverty.

WUHAN, Aug. 4 (Xinhua) -- After ten-hours exhausting militarytraining at an airborne camp in China's Central Hubei Province, XuZhongwei always falls instantly asleep.

""I'm even short of energy to send a WeChat message to mygirlfriend,"" he said.

Since being enrolled in January to take part in the airborneplatoon of the 2017 International Army Games (IAG) Mujer Adidas Originals Superstar Supercolor Pack Rojas Baratas , Xu and his twinbrother Shaowei have not returned home to Anhui Province,neighboring Hubei.

China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force is organizingtwo competitions from July 30 to August 12 as part of the IAG.

The Aviadarts competition is being held in northeast China'sJilin Province, while the airborne platoon competition, in whichbrothers Xu are engaged, is ongoing in Hubei.

The Chinese air force has been invited to take part in theInternational Army Games hosted by the Russian defense ministry forthree years. This is the first time for China to co-organize thegames and for the twin brothers to compete in them. They hope toachieve success.

In 2013 when finishing the college entrance exam, the17-year-old boys joined the PLA Mujer Adidas Originals Superstar Supercolor Pack Rosa Baratas , dreaming of serving as soldiers.They were assigned to a scout troop attached to the airbornecamp.

They were determined as the best scouts. Military swimming,downhill races, obstacle crossing...the brothers fought togetherside by side in daily training over the following years.

Looking back to the first 1,000 meters military swimming, XuZhongwei remembers the feeling of almost being suffocated.

""How could I give up when my younger brother did not stop?"" hesaid.

Three years later in 2016, the brothers Xu heard outstandingsoldiers were being selected to compete in the IAG. They appliedwithout hesitation.

Going through assessments from the regiment and division Adidas Originals Classic Superstar 2 Azules Blancas Baratas , untilselection in the whole army, the twins won tickets to the pre-gametraining team.

Their endurance was taken to the limit on multiple occasions,and they had only seven days off during six-months of highintensity training.

""We will be challenged by outstanding soldiers from othercountries,"" Xu Zhongwei said. ""Thus we have to be strict enough onourselves.""

The twin brothers continuously encourage each other.

They have devoted themselves to the training. Their parents oncecame to the camp in Hubei and stayed there for three days. But thetime the family spent together was only about two hours.

The airborne platoon games contain three main events: combat,non-combat vehicle and base jumping.

Brothers Xu are scheduled to take part in the non-combat vehicleevent with their 16 teammates.

Differing from games in previous years, the shooting distance in2017 increased to 300 meters from 100 meters in the non-combatvehicle event. And the cross-country distance increased from 19kilometers to 25 kilometers.

China dispatched 42 soldiers to the airborne platoon games thisyear. Such training intensity is common among Chinese soldiers whoattend the IAG.

""We are confident that Chinese soldiers have advantages inphysical agility Adidas Originals Superstar II Negras Doradas Baratas , shooting skills and cooperative combat,"" XuShaowei said. ""While we can learn combat effectiveness from othercountries.""

Xu Zhongwei has made an appointment to meet his girlfriend inlate August.

""I believe that we will give her good news about our performancein the games,"" he said.

But unfortunately, during the parachuting training before thegames, the older brother got a wrist fracture. Thus he became asubstitute until his full recovery.

It is a huge pity for him. And the younger brother pledged tofight for him.

Shaowei is looking forward to his best performance, as well asexchanges with foreign participants from Iran Adidas Originals Classic Superstar 2 Rojas Blancas Baratas , Kazakhstan, Morocco,Russia, South Africa and Venezuela.

During the non-combat vehicle event, Chinese soldiers will usedomestic weapons, which are also provided to soldiers from Iran Adidas Originals Superstar 2 Bling Blancas Doradas Baratas ,South Africa, and Venezuela.
