ABIDJAN Uomo Nike Air Max 97 KPU Scarpe Nere Scontate , Aug. 20 (Xinhua) -- Cote d'Ivoire's sports authorities on Tuesday decided to suspend the organization of any international competitions in the country until further notice, an official source said.
A statement released by the sports ministry said the decision is meant to respect measures taken by the government to prevent the entry of Ebola virus which is spreading rapidly in the West African region.
"Different sporting federations are hereby urged to suspend organization of any competitions of international nature across the entire national territory," the statement said.
Cote d'Ivoire was set to play against Sierra Leone on Sept. 6 in a football match to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
No case of Ebola has so far been confirmed in the country but the government has heightened surveillance. Early this month, the government announced suspension of all flights coming from the countries affected by Ebola virus.
The Bola virus which appeared in Guinea early this year, has spread to other West African countries like Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. The World Health Organization estimated the disease has killed over 1 Uomo Nike Air Max 97 2017 Retro Scarpe Argento Scontate ,200 people so far.
JINAN, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- As China hosts an international arts festival in its eastern province of Shandong, experts from home and abroad are weighing in on the key for Chinese performers to gain international success.
The 10th China Arts Festival, which runs from Oct. 11 to Oct. 26, is bringing nearly 2,000 performances Uomo Nike Air Max 2018 Elite Scarpe Bianche Nere Scontate , including orchestra concerts, dance shows, musicals and operas from home and abroad to Shandong. But the focus of many at the event has been on how China can develop a domestic cultural industry that remains weak when considered alongside the country's status as the world's second-largest economy.
"Chinese artists should be more passionate and cultivate works that strike a chord in the hearts of overseas audiences," said Yannick Rieu, a Canadian composer and saxophonist who has delighted audiences with his shows at the festival.
In his view, it would be especially interesting to see works on China's history playing abroad. "China is a country with a long history and rich cultural resources Uomo Nike Air Max 2018 Elite Scarpe Grigie Nere Scontate , but few works about its glorious past have been seen in the international cultural field until now," Rieu told Xinhua.
Since 2002, Chinese central authorities have encouraged reforms in the country's cultural sector. A blueprint to strengthen the arts was formulated at the sixth plenary session of the 17th Communist Party of China Central Committee in 2011, stressing that culture is emerging as an important part of the country's competitiveness.
Under the drive for reform, theaters have aimed to expand their influence abroad in recent years.
As one of China's leading troupes, the Shanghai Ballet has tasted the sweetness of overseas success. "Our adaptation of 'Jane Eyre' has been staged five times in England since its debut in November 2012 Uomo Nike Air Max 2018 Elite Scarpe Army Verde Scontate , with a revenue of about 50,000 yuan (8,205 U.S. dollars) for each performance," said He Dong, production manager with the troupe.
This points to the value of investment in this field. "We spent more than 4 million yuan on the adaptation of 'Jane Eyre,' but the cost was recovered within a year Uomo Nike Air Max 2018 Elite Scarpe Nere Bianche Scontate ," according to He.
The China Opera and Dance Theatre, which is a national-level troupe, has also attached great importance to international touring.
"Previous overseas performances were largely organized by cultural authorities, with a cast of about 20 to 30 performers each time," said Fan Ming, deputy director of the troupe's performance center. The China Opera and Dance Theatre nike air max 95 scontate , however, will organize for an acting team of more than 100 people to perform in three cities in Australia next month.
Fan said that exploration of the overseas market has just started, and added that "Confucius," a song and dance drama about the ancient Chinese thinker, is in rehearsal and will target foreign audiences.
Like Yannick Rieu, He Dong believes that there is appetite for more Chinese elements in performances abroad. "We should recommend more unique Chinese works nike air max 90 ultra 2.0 flyknit scontate , such as folk music, to attract a foreign audience," the production manager urged, while also saying that government support is necessary for the arts to spread beyond China.H While the exotic nature of Chinese culture could in many cases attract audiences in other countries, there are some styles of performance that would not appeal. For example, Chinese theater's emphasis on stage art over story is cited as an obstacle.
Referring to the need for adaptation in cultural exports nike air max tn scontate , Li Xiaojie, general manager of the Shenzhen-based Oriental Charm Culture-Transmitting Co., Ltd, said, "Chinese classical works should step out of China and into the overseas performing market."
GUANGZHOU， May 9 (Xinhua) -- An autism treatment center in south China is under investigation after the death of a child inmate who was made to walk about 20 km a day as part of his therapy.
Jiajia， four years old， died at the Tiandaozhengqi Rehabilitation Institution in Guangzhou， capital city of Guangdong Province， on April 27 from pneumonia and encephalitis.
The day before his death， Jiajia walked 19 km. "He became feverish and was up all night urinating，" according to records kept by Tiandaozhengqi.
Jiajia's mother， Zhang Wei， sent him to the center in March. "I read the founder Xia Dejun's book on autism， and decided to give his treatments a try，" she said.
Long-distance walking is a central part of the treatment program. "Xia said intense physical exercise helps children discharge toxins and boosts their overall heath，" said Zhang.
The center also made children board there without their parents. Zhang， whose home in China's northeastern Liaoning Province is about 3，000 km from Guangzhou， said she was informed of her so.
