    BRASILIA Wholesale Jerseys China , July 26 (Xinhua) -- China's better-than-expected economic growth has a positive impact on Brazil's otherwise flagging economy, especially in the primary products sector, said a leading economist.

    Jose Luiz Oreiro, professor of economics at the University of Brasilia, said he believes China's 6.9-percent GDP growth in the first half of 2017 has helped to lift Brazil out of its economic doldrums.

    "In the first quarter, the only sector that saw real growth in Brazil was agribusiness with a 13-percent increase Wholesale Jerseys ," said Oreiro, adding that "steel also has reasonable prices due to China's growth, so China's added growth has been good news for the Brazilian economy."

    As to China's economic indicators announced last week, the economist said "the result does not surprise me. We expected to see a more moderate growth in China compared to previous years (with a double-digit growth), so the 6-7 percent growth per year is a new norm."

    China's economic growth helped sustain the prices of Brazil's commodity exports, offset slowdowns in other sectors of Latin America's largest economy Cheap Hockey Jerseys , and also signaled a coming recovery for the global economy, which has been struggling since the 2008 financial crisis, said Oreiro.

    "The global economy appears to be getting into third gear. The developed economies are seeing sped-up growth. As the world's second largest economy, China's accelerating growth is important in providing a greater impetus to the global economic growth," said the economist.

    However, the main challenge for China will be to reduce its "huge savings rate" to sustain a new growth model that relies more on domestic consumption.

    "China will have to put in place social security policies Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys , state-paid pensions, a universal public health system, etc. to reduce the savings rate and promote spending, since the Chinese middle class will no longer need to save for medical treatment and thus will buy more consumer goods," he said.

    "It is the transition China needs to complete, so that its consumption will represent a larger GDP share. In recent decades Cheap NHL Jerseys , the Chinese economy has been driven by investments and exports, now it needs to give a greater role to spending," said Oreiro.

    The outlook for Brazil's economy remains "very bad" though a slight growth was registered in the first quarter of 2017, thanks to a bumper harvest of soy and grains, Oreiro said, adding that "the effect won't last Cheap Jerseys From China , and my forecast for 2017 Brazilian economy is zero percent growth."

    WASHINGTON Cheap College Football Jerseys , Jan. 26 (Xinhua) -- U.S. deficit to gross domestic product (GDP) ratio in 2015 fiscal year will drop to the lowest level since 2007 thanks to the solid economic growth, according to estimates from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

    In a statement released on Monday, CBO estimates the deficit will amount to 468 billion U.S. dollars in 2015 fiscal year, which runs from Oct. 1, 2014 to Sept. 30 Cheap College Basketball Jerseys , 2015, slightly less than the 483-billion-dollar deficit in 2014. The deficit to GDP ratio will be 2.6 percent this year, the smallest since 2007 and close to the 2.7 percent that deficits have averaged over the past 50 years.

    It projects the deficits will remain stable as a percentage of GDP through 2018 but will rise after 2018 as economic growth slows and health and retirement costs rise. The deficit in 2025 is projected to reach 1.1 trillion dollars, or 4 percent of GDP.

    According to the statement, the CBO expects the U.S. economy to grow about 3 percent in 2015 and 2016 before slowing down slightly to 2.5 percent in 2017.

    Increases in hourly compensation Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale , rising wealth, the recent decline in oil prices, and household formation rate (as more people are more willing and able to set up new homes) will drive consumer spending, business investment and residential investment over the next few years, says the CBO.

    It projects the unemployment rate will gradually decrease to 5. 3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2017 which is close to the expected natural rate of unemployment. In the fourth quarter of 2014 Cheap Wholesale College Jerseys , the rate stayed at 5.7 percent.

    Along with the elimination of slack in the economy, the downward pressure on the U.S. inflation rate will be gradually reduced, says the CBO. It expects the price index for personal consumption expenditures will move up gradually and hit the Federal Reserve's 2 percent target in 2017 and beyond.

    by Hu Guangyao

    KUALA LUMPUR, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- The Malaysian government announced a number of proactive measures Tuesday to handle the changing economic scenario caused by the oil price slump and the worst flood in the country.

    In a special address to the nation, Prime Minister Najib Razak said the goverment remained confident that the country's gross domestic product (GDP) will grow by between 4.5 percent to 5.5 percent in 2015.

    Economists here believed that Malaysia's GDP growth will slow down to 5 percent this year against 5.7 percent in 2014 as exports of crude oil and palm oil makes much contributions to the nation's economy.

    Announcing the revisions to the 2015 which was tabled in October 2014 Cheap College Jerseys From China , Najib said the Budget for 2015 that was announced when crude oil price was hovering above 110 U.S. dollars per barrel is no longer realistic.

    He said the falling oil price necessitated a review of fiscal assumptions underpinning the 2015 Budget, with the revised forecast predicting a revenue shortfall of RM 13.8 billion (about 3.94 billion U.S. dollars), or 3.2 percent of GDP in 2015 from 3 percent projected earlier.

    Najib set out a strategy to counter external developments and strengthen Malaysia's economic resilience by continuing fiscal reform and consolidation, assisting people and businesses affected by recent floods.

    Firstly, to boost exports of goods and services Cheap College Jerseys China , the government will promote import-substitution services, such as shipping, port, education and professional services and promote tourism.

    Secondly, to enhance private consumption Cheap College Jerseys , the government will give priority to local contractors to undertake reconstruction works in their respective flood affected areas and intensify promotion of "Buy Malaysia" products.

  • daily life in the empireDateToday 1:33 am

    BEIJING, March 6 (Xinhua) -- China plans to boost its tourism sector by upgrading infrastructure and giving the public easier access to travel information, a government document said on Monday.

    The National Tourism Administration unveiled the plan in a development guideline for the tourism industry during the 2016-2020 period. It echoes the country's national strategy to spur the service sector.

    According to the document, by 2020, roads to the country's major tourist attractions will be renovated to meet growing travel demand. Large tourist destinations will have easier internal transportation.

    In the next four years, the country will add 20 inter-region bike lanes with a total length of 5,000 kilometers to boost zero-emission travel. More tour buses and RV campsites will also open.

    Toilets at tourist sites have long had a nasty reputation. Visitors have complained of a toilet shortage, unhygienic conditions, and lack of sanitation workers.

    To address the problem, the country aims to install and upgrade 100,000 restrooms. Toilets at major tourist sites should apply stringent hygiene standards with environmentally friendly cleaning approaches at most facilities.

    The document also outlines plans to build a more integrated information sharing system and provide visitors higher-quality services.

    China's tourism revenue totaled about 4.69 trillion yuan (about 689.7 billion U.S. dollars) in 2016, up 13.6 percent year on year. Domestic tourists made 4.44 billion trips last year, an increase of 11 percent, official data showed.

    Tourism plays a key part in the world's second-largest economy as the country moves to build an economy driven by the service sector and consumer spending rather than trade and investment.

    By 2020, the country will spend about 2 trillion yuan on the tourism sector, which will contribute more than 12 percent of GDP, according to the plan.

    President Donald Trump came under harsh criticism from the NFL and some of the NBA's top players after he blasted prominent athletes for kneeling during the national anthem and refusing to come to the White House Comprar Hombre Nike Air Max 270 Photo Azul , putting himself in the center of a controversy with significant racial and cultural undertones.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell slammed Trump in a statement, calling the President "divisive" for remarks he made at a rally in Alabama Friday night, while one of the most famous athletes in the world, LeBron James, called Trump a "bum" for his Saturday morning tweet uninviting Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry from visiting the White House.

    The Golden State Warriors issued a statement later Saturday accepting Trump's dis-invitation.

    "While we intended to meet as a team at the first opportunity we had this morning to collaboratively discuss a potential visit to the White House Comprar Hombre Nike Air Max 270 Midnight Marino , we accept that President Trump has made it clear that we are not invited," the team said.

    The statement added that while the team will not be visiting the White House, its players will still come to the nation's capital in February "to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion — the values that we embrace as an organization."

    Former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant also tweeted a rebuke of Trump.

    "A #POTUS whose name alone creates division and anger. Whose words inspire dissension and hatred can't possibly 'Make America Great Again,'" Bryant wrote.

    Trump's Twitter response

    Trump responded to the criticisms Saturday in a series of tweets Comprar Hombre Nike Air Max 270 Light Bone , saying that playing for a sports league is a "privilege" and that players should not be able to disrespect the American flag or the US without risking being "fired."

    "If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect ...." Trump tweeted. "Our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do!"

    Later, he added of Goodell's criticism: "Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country. Tell them to stand!"

    America's most popular pro league endures horrific week of scandals and controversy

    This has been the NFL's worst week.

    In the span of five days , America's favorite league bombarded fans with a video of one player punching his wife, details about a former MVP hitting his son with a tree branch, reminders of two more lingering domestic violence cases - all being overseen by a commissioner, Roger Goodell, who has looked ill-suited to handle any of it.

    Friday also brought news that speaks to the oversized violence of the game: One story about a study that showed nearly three in 10 ex-players face Alzheimer's or moderate dementia; and another about the long-awaited implementation of a policy to test for human growth hormone.

    Both those items might have been front-page news in some weeks. Instead, they were virtual afterthoughts, while a sampling of some headlines read: 'Goodell's Watergate' , 'Goodell Shows Again that the NFL has Sold its Soul', 'Protect the Shield or Cover His Butt?'.

    "As unusual a week as I can remember in 40 years around the NFL," agent Leigh Steinberg said. "What should have been as positive a week as they have, with opening weekend and a lot of good games, turned into a destructive minefield of negativity."

    On Sunday, games continued with players hitting the field and satiating America's thirst for its weekly dose of league-sanctioned, bone-jarring violence. The games offered a break of sorts from the all-too-disturbing mayhem the league served up from last Monday through Friday.

    On Monday , TMZ released a video of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his fiancee in an elevator, prompting Goodell to go beyond the league's new, hastily reworked domestic-violence policy and suspend Rice indefinitely.

    On Friday, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was charged with child abuse for using a branch to discipline his son.

    In between, Goodell's reputation was savaged in part because of his claim he had not seen the Rice video until this week, even though Associated Press reported the video had, indeed , been sent to the NFL in April.

    The league hired former FBI director Robert Mueller to look into the NFL's handling of the case. Meanwhile, a poll commissioned by ESPN found 55 percent of 544 adults surveyed believe Goodell was lying about not having seen the video.

    "The mistake Roger Goodell makes is that, if this is just an ESPN story, then it stays a sports story," sports agent Evan Morgenstein said.

    "The fact that I turned on the TV and it's the first story on 'Morning Joe' is a problem. You've got mainstream America, women and moms, discussing topics they'd never discuss in the past."

    They will have more chances to discuss the issues.

    The commissioner had not weighed in on the Peterson case as of Saturday , though the Vikings said he would be inactive for Sunday's game.

    Two other players with domestic violence cases open, Ray McDonald of the San Francisco 49ers and Greg Hardy of the Carolina Panthers, were expected to suit up. Hardy has been convicted, but is appealing.

    "Every week those players play is a constant irritant," Steinberg said.

    The National Organization for Women is calling for Goodell's sacking. So far, owners are showing support for the commissioner.

    On Saturday, Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder , whose refusal to change his team's nickname has caused a PR problem of its own, issued a statement saying the commissioner "has always had the best interests of football at heart" and "we are fortunate to have him".

    Earlier in the week, former Dallas Cowboys executive Gil Brandt made it clear why that sentiment exists: "Owners not moving on from Goodell," Brandt tweeted.

    "Record broadcast contracts, team-friendly (collective bargaining agreement), $1bn+ franchise valuations, etc. Follow the money."

    Money is the key.

    "If the thing keeps spiraling and you get a boycott by sponsors , that's checkmate," Morgenstein said. "Nobody cares until the money starts getting pulled out."

    But so far, that hasn't happened. And though Americans may be suspicious of Goodell, they show no signs of turning off the TV.

    The CBS broadcast of Thursday Night Football, featuring the embattled Ravens against the Pittsburgh Steelers, drew more than 20 million viewers.

    Much of the fanfare prepared for the broadcast was toned down, in deference to the news surrounding the game.

    Novak Djokovic was once in danger of becoming tennis' great unfulfilled talent, the smiling Serb with a racquet in one hand and a sick note in the other.

    A decade on, he is the super-fit king of the sport Comprar Nike Air Max 270 Dusty Cactus , a nine-time Grand Slam champion with the promise of more to come.

    Now, where once the sport lauded the Big Four, Djokovic -appears to be the last man standing as his rivals falter.

    Djokovic swept to a third Wimbledon title last weekend with victory over Roger Federer, meaning eight of his nine majors have come since the start of 2011.

    By contrast, Federer, the record 17-time major winner Comprar Nike Air Max 270 Negras , has not won a Slam since Wimbledon three years ago.

    World No.3 Andy Murray won the last of his two Grand Slam titles at the All England Club in 2013.

    And Rafael Nadal, the 14-time major champion, is trapped in a vicious spiral of decline which has sent him spinning to his lowest ranking in a decade and close to slipping out of the world top 10.

    By contrast, Djokovic has this year picked up a fifth Australian Open, a third Wimbledon and four Masters. His match record is a remarkable 48 wins against just three defeats.

    He is also the model of consistency, making the semifinals in 19 of his last 20 Grand Slams.

    "Novak can go to sleep tonight saying Comprar Nike Air Max 270 Flyknit , 'I've had more Grand Slams than [Jimmy] Connors, [John] McEnroe, [Andre] Agassi, [Boris] Becker, [Stefan] Edberg, [Mats] Wilander ...' the list just goes on and on ," former world No.1 Andy Roddick told the BBC.

    "He's marching through history. I'm not sure where this ends for Novak."

    Sunday's win leveled his career matchup with Federer at 20-20 and he has now won five of their last seven meetings at the Grand Slams.

    Rivals off the pace

    Federer will be 34 in August and the longer Sunday's final went on, the further off the pace he fell.

    Djokovic is 19-8 to the good against fellow 28-year-old -Murray, winning their last eight meetings. Despite trailing -Rafael Nadal 23-21, Djokovic has won six of their last seven.

    BEIJING, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- Why do the Chinese tend to eat dumplings or rice ball soup on certain dates?

    The answer comes down to 24 solar terms, which were added Wednesday to the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

    What exactly are the 24 solar terms?

    Put simply, they are a list of terms central to a calendar created in ancient China. Based on the movement of the sun, the calendar divides the year into 24 segments to guide farming over the four seasons.

    The Yellow River Basin, in northern China, is believed to be the cradle of the solar terms system. Ancient Chinese farmers used astronomical signs, changes in temperature and precipitation as the basis to create the calendar, which was later adopted by multiple ethnic groups in different regions across China.

    As a unique knowledge system of the Chinese people, the 24 solar terms have had a deep impact on Chinese people's way of thinking and behavior for thousands of years, and are considered an important part of the Chinese cultural identity.

    In the current time of technology-based modern farming, traditional solar terms remain relevant, especially in Chinese cultural and social life. It is also not uncommon for a patriarch to remind members of the family to put on warmer clothes on the start date of "Frost Descent"; mothers may cook glutinous rice dumplings when "Winter Solstice" arrives.

    This legacy reflects the Chinese people's respect for nature and tradition, their unique understanding of the universe, their wisdom to live in harmony with nature, and the world's cultural diversity, said Zhang Ling, an official with the Ministry of Culture, who attended the UNESCO meeting in Addis Ababa.
