I appeal to you to put forward women candidates for vacancies

HAMBURG, Germany, March 12 (Xinhua) -- More than 40 pairs of running shoes, five oranges, boxes of peanut brittle and his legs.

Kai Markus Xiong from Germany did not bring much when he began his super marathon on Sunday, which started from Hamburg's landmark concert hall by the Elbe river, Elbphilharmonie, to Shanghai, on foot.

Even Xiong himself considered his adventure "a bit crazy". In about eight months, the running maniac will go along the historic Silk Road, for approximately 12, 000 kilometers, with an estimate of 18.5 million steps.

According to Xiong's ambitious plan, he will "run, hike, walk, or crawl" 50 to 70 kilometers per day, and reach his destination in November.

Along with him, his best friend, experienced adventurer Victor Neubauer will transport most of the equipment and food in a VolksWagen beetle hauling a caravan.

They will rest and get supply in cities or villages en route, but if they are exhausted in the middle of nowhere, they probably have to huddle together for warm and sleep in the caravan, Xiong said.

"The most difficult on the way is I cannot support my families, and my friends. When something happened, it will be really really difficult for me to do anything," added Xiong who married a Chinese wife and have a child. The ancient trade route, linking east and west, witnessed merchants and explorers, but never a jogger before.

"The main goal is to bridge the cultural gaps and dismantle prejudices between Germans and Chinese," Xiong said, adding his long journey will be covered by "Nihao Deutschland", a TV program presenting China to the German audiences.

Xiong said most of the Germans heard about the development of Chinese economy on TV, but they probably don't know that China has made conspicuous progress in various fields for the past decades.

The 44-year-old Bavarian is also a Chinese culture lover.

At 12:15 p.m. local time (1115 GMT) on Sunday, Xiong blew his whistle and started running, wearing a full-zip-hoodie, on the back of which writes "Journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step."

WASHINGTON Francesco Acerbi World Cup Jersey , May 6 (Xinhua) -- Noise pollution created by humans, often considered an urban problem, is "pervasive" in U.S. protected areas, a new study has found, raising concerns that wildlife there could be profoundly and negatively affected.

To quantify the extent of noise pollution in protected areas designed to be safe havens for biodiversity, researchers at Colorado State University and the U.S. National Park Service recorded sounds at 492 sites across the United States.

A computer algorithm was used to establish a baseline, or natural sound level, for the various areas Federico Marchetti World Cup Jersey , given each's unique geospatial features.

It turned out that background noise exceeded three decibels (dB) in 63 percent of protected areas, and 10 dB in 21 percent of protected areas.

This meant a doubling and ten-fold increase in background noise, respectively, in these locations, according to the study published this week in the U.S. journal Science.

In other words, noise reduced the area that natural sounds can be heard by 50 to 90 percent.

"So if you could have heard something at 100 feet (30 meters) away, now you can only hear it from 10 to 50 feet (3 to 15 meters) away," said Rachel Buxton Federico Bernardeschi World Cup Jersey , lead author and post-doctoral researcher at Colorado State University.

Noise pollution can have a profound effect on wildlife, she said.

"Animals use sounds for many essential life functions such as predator avoidance, navigation, finding food, making attraction and maintenance of social groups, so not being able to hear the sounds have serious consequences," Buxton said.

"For example, birds may have a harder time finding a mate Emanuele Giaccherini World Cup Jersey , or a prey species may not be able to hear the approach of a predator and be more likely to be eaten."

Even plants can also be indirectly affected by noise pollution if herbivores or rodents that disperse plant seeds alter their behavior or location because of the sound disturbance.

"So even if only one species is actually being affected by noise directly, these impacts may cascade through an ecological community," she said.

The study also revealed that high noise pollution levels within protected areas were in specific locations, where noise reduction techniques may best be targeted.

The biggest noise-causing culprits were roads, aircraft, human development, and resource extraction, it said.

Currently Eder World Cup Jersey , protected areas cover 14 percent of the land mass in the United States.

"Next time you go for a walk in the woods, pay attention to the sounds you hear -- the flow of a river, wind through the trees, singing birds, bugling elk. These acoustic resources are just as magnificent as visual ones, and deserve our protection," said Buxton.

KOBE, Japan, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- When world players start their annual competition here on Saturday for the title of the 2013 Women's World Cup of table tennis, it looks again like a gathering of Chinese.

Among the 20 players who are qualified to enter the fierce battle, at least 13 are either Chinese or of Chinese origin.

The powerful China squad is composed of two paddlers, namely Liu Shiwen and Wu Yang. Liu, 22, is considered the favorite for the title at the STARTS Women's World Cup Daniele Padelli World Cup Jersey , which r.
