MEXICO CITY, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- An exhibition of 148 paintings reflecting the perception of Chinese culture among Mexican children opened on Thursday at the National Museum of Cultures in Mexico City.

The third "China in my imagination" exhibition was organized by the Chinese embassy in Mexico and the National Institute of Fine Arts (INBA).

Lin Ji, minister counsellor at the Embassy, said that 570 children from 22 primary schools in Mexico City took part and sent in their artwork.

The organizers picked 148 drawings to be shown in a room of the museum, next to the presidential palace in the city's historic center.

"The Mexican children learned about China's history, culture, traditions and customs during the drawing process, which contributes to the traditional friendship between the Chinese and Mexican people," said Lin at the opening of the exhibition, which saw the three best paintings rewarded.

Jessica, the 12-year-old winner of the competition, said that she wanted to reflect the origin of silk through the story of legendary Chinese empress, Leizu, who discovered silkworms when a cocoon dropped into her cup of tea.

Many of the paintings reflect aspects such as the Silk Road, cuisine, or ships ferrying goods between both lands.

"It is relevant to see how children conceive this millennial culture, how they think and imagine ties to China," said Margarita Villagómez, director of educational services at INBA. Enditem

IT’S finally time for China’s best-known and most successful boxer Mens Nike Air Presto Essential Green Australia , Zou Shiming, to seriously rethink his professional career after being knocked out by Japan’s Sho Kimura in his first WBO world title defending bout at Shanghai Oriental Sports Center yesterday.

Facing his opponent, a relatively unknown 28-year-old, 36-year-old Zou continued in his defensive style Mens Nike Air Presto Essential Black Blue Australia , stealing points with counter-punches while Kimura kept pushing forward to attack. Come round 11 of the 12-round bout, Zou’s deficit in stamina became evident when he fell to the floor after receiving a barrage of punches from his younger opponent.

The judge then called an end to the bout, as Zou encountered his first TKO defeat in his professional career, which started only four years ago.

The surprising defeat threw a packed Oriental Sports Center into total silence before an emotional Zou Mens Nike Air Presto Essential Black Australia , who was in tears, gave a 5-minute speech to the home crowd.

“My tears are not because of my defeat, but for China’s boxing,” said the Guizhou Province native. “For a long time nike air max tn australia , China’s boxing has not been understood or paid enough attention to. Today I lost my bout, but if it has aroused people’s interest in China’s boxing, the it's served its purpose.”

“I've boxed for 22 years, and what I want is that one day nike air max 2018 australia , when I lose a fight and can not play any longer, China’s boxing will still be supported,” Zou added.

Though he did not confirm his retirement, many are regarding the speech as his informal farewell to the professional rink.

Turning professional

Zou went professional as late as 32 years of age nike air vapormax australia , after winning two Olympic gold medals in 2008 and 2012. Partnering with Chinese Sports promoter SECA, Zou signed a contract with US boxing promoter Top Rank, and was subsequently trained by Freddie Roach, Manny Pacquiao’s coach.

Top Rank was eyeing the Chinese market after noticing Zou’s reputation and recognition in China nike air max 97 mens australia , a country where professional boxing is still at a very early stage.

Zou’s nimble playing style and amateur boxing skills, however, could not allow him to reach similar achievements in professional boxing, despite his hard work.

Under Top Rank’s “protection nike air max 97 australia ,” Zou’s professional bout opponents had been carefully chosen.

On July 19, 2014, Zou beat Luis de la Rosa by unanimous decision in Macau for his first professional title, the WBO International flyweight title. His first world title came last November when Zou defeated Prasitsak Phaprom via unanimous decision to win the vacant WBO flyweight title in Las Vegas.

The Shanghai fight was Zou’s first professional bout nike air max 97 ultra australia , backed by his own company Zouxuan Sports. However, eight weeks of preparation turned out to be far from enough for the 36-year-old to hold on for 12 rounds, even though his opponent Kimura is considered a rookie boxer, and is far from being well recognized in his native Japan.

Despite the heart-breaking loss nike air max 97 undefeated australia , Zou still remains the most successful boxer in China, though his methods could hardly be copied by any up-and-coming boxers. Professional boxing in China still has a long way to go.

LIVERPOOL, June 17 (Xinhua) -- Liverpool has risen from the ashes like a phoenix to become one of Britain's most successful cities, earning its place on the world tourism map.

Just 20 years ago Liverpool was being written off as a basket case with mass unemployment and social deprivation, hectares of desolation where thriving factories once stood.

What kick started Liverpool's road to recovery was the European Union pouring almost 3 billion U.S. dollars into a dying city that less than a century earlier had prided itself as being the second city (after London) of the British Empire.

The EU declared Liverpool as an Objective One area, one of the poorest regions within the vast EU area.

It flung open the door to an unthinkable fortune worth, with private sector match funding, almost 6 billion U.S. dollars.

The city earned its reward in 2008 when it was celebrated being the European Capital of Culture, its historic waterfront also becoming a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Yet a recent survey shows Liverpool is near the top of a list showing areas likely to vote to leave the EU in next Thursday's national referendum.

Politician Flo Clucas, former deputy leader of Liverpool City Council, is in no doubt that t. Jerseys Cheap   Jerseys China   NCAA Jerseys Wholesale   Jerseys Online   Jerseys Free Shipping   Jerseys China   MLB Jerseys Cheap   NHL Jerseys Wholesale   NFL Jerseys Wholesale   NBA Jerseys China
