The more you order, the more motorcycles will be on the road, and the sooner you want your things to be delivered the faster the couriers have to ride. The internet companies choose motorcycles as their main means for delivering things for good reason: They are cheaper and they are more flexible. A few months ago I wrote, after considerable reflection, about the convenience e-commerce brings. That fierce competition means the couriers have to be on the go a lot more often and to be doing so a lot more quickly. So the next time you take delivery of a package, give a moment's thought to the courier who risked life and limb cutting through dense traffic to get it to you. Can we place one big order to buy things we need in one go, instead of small orders one by one, simply because we have a VIP card for free delivery?
Can we make our decisions more carefully when buying garments online so we do not have to return every item we have tried on?
Can we as customers be a little more rational, and not buy things we do not need just because of how cheap they are?
Old - and even relatively new - habits die hard, and perhaps higher delivery fees would make us think twice before putting things in our virtual shopping carts.
Here we have a lot to learn from overseas: Price-cutting simply leads to a vicious cycle of undercutting that in the long run is unsustainable. Higher wages and a reasonable workload are the key to the healthy growth of China's delivery market.
Yes, for some people, hearing a curse word is the equivalent of nails being dragged down a chalkboard. So I was interested to see the response to the State media regulator's censure of Jiang Yilei, one of China's hottest internet stars, who was told in April to curb the use of "swear words and insulting language" in the short comedy skits she produces under the name Papi Jiang.
Unsurprising, many people came out in support of the official rebuke, including some who rolled out the tired, old reasoning that her behavior is a threat to the innocent minds of our children. When I was growing up, and I believe it's still the case today, parents were the ones responsible for what their children consumed, mentally and physically. Fair enough, it's impossible to watch them 24 hours a day, but to demand that Jiang - or any other comedian who writes material for an adult audience - change their content because a child might see it is ludicrous, not least because it discourages creativity and innovation.
Jiang's series of online videos have earned her countless fans, not to mention 12 million yuan ($1.85 million) in angel investment.
Also, it may not be a good thing, but most pre-teens - especially those who are like me at that age - will know a plethora of bad words well before they ever hear them on television or online.
To stop that from happening, schools would need to ban students from chatting in the schoolyard. Construction work on venues for the G20 summit, which includes the upgrading of residences for Chinese and foreign leaders as well as the rebuilding and improvement of some streets, communities and tourist attractions, is basically complete, said Zhao Yide, secretary of the CPC Hangzhou Municipal Committee. Zhao made the remarks at a media briefing on Tuesday in Hangzhou ahead of the 100-day countdown to the summit, where he briefed reporters on preparations for the event that will take place in the capital of East China's Zhejiang province on Sept 4 and Sept 5. Zhao said none of the venues are new-builds; they were all pre-existing but in need of upgrades and improvements. According to Zhao, 33 entrance roads to Hangzhou city are in line for upgrades that will see streets and homes improved. At Pengbu, which is one of the entrance communities to Hangzhou and close to the city's east side railway station, Huang Bingquan, a local resident told China Daily he has benefitted from the upgrade and has seen his home improved and expanded. The local government said a total of 2.21 billion yuan ($340 million) was being invested in upgrading 78 hectares of the Pengbu area, which includes the community where Huang lives. Zhou Zhen, a 40-year-old taxi driver from the Sixinfang community, an old neighborhood a five-minute walk from the famous West Lake tourist attraction, is among the army of volunteers preparing for the summit. Yu has not missed any of Zhou's classes, and said she is looking forward to being able to say hello to overseas visitors during the summit.
A volunteer ceremony will be held in the city on Saturday and one of the keynote speakers will be Australian multi-linguist Tom Clancy. The group soon branched out to helping charities and became the city's first foreign charity organization, raising funds to help the sick and people with disabilities. On his new role as a representative of foreign volunteers, Clancy said he was "very proud, but also under great pressure".
The expert linguist has been pursuing his degree since 2014 at Zhejiang University on a full scholarship under the Ministry of Education.
During the seventh G20 Tourism Ministers Meeting on May 20, Li Jinzao, director of the China National Tourism Administration, said Beijing will seek more agreements that allow visas on arrival and more visa waivers. Tourism was recognized as "a vehicle for job creation, economic growth and development" during the G20 leaders meeting in June 2012.
The declaration issued at the end of the seventh G20 Tourism Ministers Meeting agreed to further encourage the G20 to consider travel and tourism as important sectors in delivering the objective of the G20 of building new sources of growth and development. United Nation World Tourism Organization Secretary-General Taleb Rifai said he hopes the Meeting of G20 Tourism Ministers will help "shed some light and devise some common actions that support their agenda toward an 'Innovative, Invigorated, Interconnected and Inclusive World Economy'". Rifai said tourism should contribute to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and its 17 universal Sustainable Development Goals.
Editor's Note: Earlier this year, China enacted a policy that means eligible visitors or businesspeople traveling in the Yangtze River Delta area - those arriving in Shanghai, Hangzhou or Nanjing - will automatically qualify for a 144-hour visa-free stay that can be used to facilitate travel elsewhere or to explore the region.
To the east of Hangzhou: Xikou scenic spot in Fenghua, Ningbo, about 40 km southwest of Ningbo. Nationally, online and mobile payments already go well beyond shopping, covering fields from transportation to dining and travel, tourism and finance.
The trend is even more apparent and popular in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang province, which is home to a number of leading internet companies, including Alibaba. Mobile payments in the city can be used for car rentals, buses, taxis and even parking - if you can find a space. Earlier this year, a time-sharing car rental service called Pand-auto was launched in the city, offering a new type of green transportation.
There is also the internet bus, which not only allows passengers to buy a ticket in advance, but also guarantees a seat, which is popular among those who have a long journey ahead of them, especially during the morning or evening rush hour. Passengers can follow the Chelaile or UBUS account on WeChat, which also acts as the payment platform. Earlier this year, a Quickpass service was also introduced in Hangzhou, allowing taxi passengers to pay by swiping their bank card, or near field communication-enabled mobile phone, on a compatible point-of-sale terminal.
According to Hangzhou Taxi Group, 400 taxis have already adopted the new payment service, with an additional 2,000 taxis planning to upgrade soon.
Elsewhere in the city, parking can be paid for through Alipay's smart parking service, while both WeChat and Alipay are widely accepted everywhere from the smallest roadside food stand to the fanciest five-star rated hotel. Popular group buying app Meituan has more than 700 registered restaurants based in the Hangzhou urban area, and the country's leading life service platform Baidu Nuomi has more than 28,000 registered restaurants. The city's major food markets are also building up an appetite for these new methods of payment. Seven food markets in Hangzhou have started to utilize the service, including the Hanlin Food Market, where nearly all stalls accept mobile payments. The new engagement group, which was established in Turkey last year under the auspices of G20 countries, provides a platform for communication between stakeholders, including governments, the private sector, social organizations and academia. Hosted by the All-China Women's Federation, this year's meeting had the theme "Equal Participation and Innovative Development". Discussion topics included gender perspectives in global economic governance, women's employment, entrepreneurship and social protection, women's role in the digital economy and an innovative women's network. According to a report by UN Women and consulting firm McKinsey released in September, full gender equality could be expected to add $28 trillion, or 26 percent, to last year's global gross domestic product.
Li Yuanchao, the Chinese vice-president, said at the opening of the W20 meeting on Wednesday that China, along with other countries, will make efforts to implement gender equality and empower women - "aiming for every woman's happiness". The Chinese government has encouraged women's participation in the workplace, including female entrepreneurship, Li said. About 55 percent of e-commerce entrepreneurs are women, and 40 percent of Chinese scientific professionals are women, Li said, adding that an increasing number have received a higher education, and more than half of the country's college students are women. In 2015, the All-China Women's Federation trained 8 million women and helped women with 4 million yuan ($610,000) in small loans to start their own business, said Shen Yueyue, president of the All-China Women's Federation. It is not only the governments' sole duty to empower women, but also key to involve efforts from the whole society, pushing forward from the global perspective, said Ayse Hilal Sayan Koytak, deputy undersecretary of the Ministry of Family and Social Policies of Turkey. Between mid-2009 and the end of 2015, the federation "took action to encourage women's employment and entrepreneurship" by coordinating with financial departments, local governments and banks to provide more than 290 billion yuan ($44.23 billion) of discounted government loans and small loans to women across the country, encouraging them to find employment or start their own businesses. The federation also launched about 8,100 entrepreneurship hubs for female college students across the country and selected more than 20,000 women entrepreneurs to be mentors and provide internships, as well as guide and train those students with entrepreneurial spirit. Employment eradicates poverty, and women's employment has lifted thousands of women and their families out of poverty, Puri said. China hosted the Women 20 Meeting, a G20 engagement group to promote gender inclusive economic growth, this week. Yan Junhui, a female entrepreneur in Chengdu, Sichuan province, hires more than 30,000 women from rural and mountainous areas to make embroidery for her company.
According to the All-China Women's Federation, in 2013, the total number of women employed nationwide was 346.4 million, about 45 percent of the total employed population.
In the same year, the number of middle-ranking and senior female professional and technical personnel had reached 6.61 million, about 44 percent of the total and a 9-percent increase from 2000.
There is steady growth in the number of women entrepreneurs in China, and they now account for about one quarter of the total. Ningbo, a coastal city in Zhejiang province, will host the second China-Central and Eastern European Countries Ministerial Meeting on Promoting Trade and Economic Cooperation, as well as three trade events, from June 8 through 12 to strengthen business ties and communication with foreign markets. The three events are the 18th China Zhejiang Investment and Trade Symposium, the 15th China International Consumer Goods Fair and the second China-CEEC Trade and Investment Expo. Foreign business representatives introduce their products to Chinese visitors during last year's China-CEEC Trade and Investment Expo.
China Zhejiang Investment and Trade Symposium will be an important platform for global economic experts and business leaders to exchange ideas on a range of issues, including the innovation-driven economy, Zhejiang's prospects during the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20) and how emerging industries will accelerate Zhejiang's industrial upgrade.
The 2016 China Zhejiang Investment White Paper will be released during the symposium to give investors more background information about the business environment in Zhejiang. In addition to Ningbo, neighboring cities such as Zhoushan, Huzhou and Lishui will host symposiums based on their unique regional features. The China International Consumer Goods Fair will feature 4,000 booths covering 100,000 square meters. More than 3,000 foreign traders from 52 countries and regions have confirmed their participation in the consumer goods fair, according to Gang. The second China-CEEC Trade and Investment Expo will be held in Ningbo, and it is hoped that the expo will build on the success of last year's event.
The expo will feature a 4,400-square-meter demonstration zone for high-tech businesses from both China and CEEC countries. The 2015 expo, held in Ningbo from June 8 through 12, attracted nearly 50,000 officials, exhibitors, experts and scholars from 93 countries and regions. Hungary will be the featured country at this year's expo, and will organize a range of activities to showcase its culture, and achievements in trade and investments to court potential investors. The Ningbo city government said there will be 12 other events to strengthen Sino-CEEC cooperation in a number of areas, including investment, trade exhibitions and forums and cultural exchanges. For instance, the second China-CEEC Investment and Cooperation Seminar will take place during the China-CEEC Trade and Investment Expo, giving representatives from Central and Eastern European countries the opportunity to introduce to investors their respective business environments, policies and projects. Business representatives from China and CEEC will gather at the third China Ningbo-CEEC Business Conference of Chamber of Commerce to discuss possible cooperation and collaborations during the expo period. A cross-border e-commerce matchmaking event will also be held to help businesses find potential partners.
Air China will arrange charter flights from Budapest to Ningbo during the expo period for the convenience of both businesspeople and tourists.
Local authorities said that several cultural promotion events, including the China-CEEC Education Cooperation Meeting, will be held during the expo period. Event organizers believe these activities will strengthen cooperation and promote information sharing and exchanges between China and CEEC countries in a range of areas, including education, technology and talent resources.
Government representatives from seven countries including Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania and Slovakia have confirmed they will attend the meeting. There will also be a photography exhibition at the Ningbo International Exhibition Center to display CEEC countries' landscapes, food and culture during the expo period. Local residents will be encouraged to take part in a range of cultural events to help them learn more about CEEC countries. Since 2012, China has led the world in overseas tourism consumption, at more than 13 percent of the annual global tourism revenue, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization.
In 2015, the country recorded more than 4.1 billion domestic tourist trips, 120 million outbound visits and 130 million international tourist arrivals.
For more than 30 years, tourism development in the country has focused on the building of scenic spots, tourist attractions, restaurants and hotels, which is often called the model of "scenic tourism".
However, under the current model, the construction and operation of tourist spots and attractions are separated and isolated from the rest of the society.
It is imperative that we shift toward a new model of "holistic development of tourism destinations".
Under this model, the country is managed as a tourism destination with standardized functions and the tourism industry is placed at the heart of national development. Through comprehensive and systemic upgrades in economic and social resources, this model would aim to achieve integrated development of resources and industries, promote joint participation and shared benefits involving all sectors of society, and leverage the role of tourism in pursuing balanced economic and social development.
To this end, transport, water, urban infrastructure and other resources will be more efficiently allocated across the nation to promote a balanced economic and social development through tourism.
A tourism coordination and management system covering the nation will be put in place to enhance comprehensive social management through tourism. This "tourism+" concept will be promoted across the nation to cultivate new productive forces and competitive strengths by merging tourism with other industries. Society will be mobilized to join in the development and share the benefits of nationwide tourism. To put this vision into reality, we have set the goal helping 12 to 14 million people overcome poverty, which accounts for 17 to 20 percent of China's overall target, through the development of tourism over the next five years. The Chinese government places high importance on tourism development and cooperation with all countries, regions and international organizations.
We are ready to enhance practical cooperation and share development opportunities with our global partners toward the goal of greater tourism prosperity. We will take a long view to tourism development and strive to expand the size of the international market. Currently, 153 countries and regions are destinations to host outbound Chinese tourists, 121 of which have formally launched tourist group services.
We will endeavor to realize the target of exchanging 20 million tourists with the Republic of Korea, 5 million tourists with the Untied States, 5 million tourists with Russia, 10 million tourists with Thailand and 10 million tourists with Indonesia, and further expand the size of the international tourism market. Following the goals of ensuring the "safety, convenience and comfort" of tourists, we will continue to ease visa restrictions, improve border tourism policies and streamline entry and exit procedures to reduce the time and cost of travel.
We will also enhance communication with our partners, and strengthen and expand bilateral and multilateral exchanges. We are willing to carry out tourism cooperation in the form of "tourism year" with more countries, enhance cooperation with international organizations, deeply engage in multilateral exchanges and cooperation and take an active part in international tourism affairs. For example, tourism cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative will bring 150 million Chinese tourists and $200 billion in tourism consumption to participating countries over the next five years.
In the coming five years, China will launch a series of international cooperation projects on tourism, including the development and protection of tourism resources, consulting services for tourism planning and training of Chinese-speaking tour guides and management staff. We will also provide 1,500 opportunities for training in China and give the best possible assistance to other developing countries to help them create jobs in the tourism sector, leverage tourism's role in improving people's lives and support the global campaign against poverty. We will pay greater attention to resource and energy conservation and ecological protection, bear in mind that "sound natural environment is as important as mountains of gold and silver", promote the transition toward a more efficient model of tourism development, and preserve and utilize natural and cultural tourism resources in a more effective way.
Chinese expenditure on tourism is expected to reach 8 trillion yuan ($1.22 trillion) by 2020, contributing more than 10 percent of the growth in the country's GDP, according to a report about the country's tourism development.
About 160 million foreign travelers will visit the country annually, generating tourism revenue of more than $160 billion, said the China Tourism Development Report, which was released by the China National Tourism Administration.
China's tourism industry has experienced rapid development since the late 1970s, when the country started its reform and opening-up, said Li Jinzao, chairman of the administration, earlier this month. The industry's contribution to the country's GDP has exceeded 10 percent, Li said, citing statistics from the World Travel and Tourism Council and the State Information Center. China ranks atop the world in domestic tourist trips, outbound trips and tourism consumption, he said. The tourism development report was released ahead of the First World Conference on Tourism for Development being held in Beijing from Wednesday through Saturday. More than 140 countries and regions, industry experts and representatives of international and regional organizations are attending the event. The development of China's tourism industry is closely associated with the country's economic growth over the past decades, according to the tourism development report. Meanwhile, China has become a major tourism power in the world with regard to the size of its outbound and inbound tourism.
As a major source of tourists in the world, the country's outbound tourism has developed rapidly since 2000. In 2014, the number of outbound trips made by residents on the Chinese mainland exceeded 100 million.
The revenue generated by inbound tourism has increased from $263 million to $113.65 billion during the same period. Moreover, the booming tourism industry has played an increasingly important role in promoting the country's economic development. By the end of last year, there were more than 27,300 travel agencies around the country, compared with 7,355 in 1999. The tourism industry contributed 10.1 percent to the country's GDP in 2015, outnumbering other industries including education, banking and automobile, according to estimates by World Travel and Tourism Council. As a sector of the service industry, tourism is also an important source of growth in supply-side reform, which was initiated by the government last year, Li said. The government should promote the integrated development of tourism and other industries and build an industrial mechanism to improve the quality and quantity of tourism products, which is in strong demand from consumers, he said.
Travel and tourism bring people together and create cultural understanding, drive economic growth and provide opportunities across gender, geography and skill level. In the least-developed countries like Bangladesh, tourism can play a vital role in economic growth. Across the globe, the tourism sector has become a critical pillar within national development planning and policies. Recent experience suggests that sustainable tourism can play an important role when it comes to poverty reduction, job creation and infrastructure investment. In adopting the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, member states stressed the importance of tourism and included a specific target on tourism in the eighth sustainable development goal, also known as SDG 8, by 2030 - to devise and implement policies to promote sustainable tourism that creates jobs and promotes local culture and products. The First World Conference on Tourism for Development, held under the theme "Tourism for Peace and Development" is thus a unique opportunity to foster a high-level dialogue on tourism's contribution to the 2030 Agenda. Tourism fosters economic growth, promotes inclusive development and has the potential to encourage environmental preservation. The year 2015 was a landmark year for the international community with the adoption of the SDGs, which will guide our common action toward 2030.
Last year was also a special year for tourism as the United Nations General Assembly has decided to declare 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. For the future, I believe we will see an acceleration of the current trends in the direction of sustainable tourism, in both developed and developing countries. All sectors of tourism - from transport to water and energy consumption, to the protection of the natural resources, to job creation and poverty reduction - play an important role. Over the last decade, tourism's contribution to global GDP has been growing at an average annual rate of 2.3 percent since 2005. Tourism can be a major source of income and employment, particularly if it brings real and tangible benefits to the local communities.
However, tourism can also cause social dislocation, loss or destruction of cultural heritage, economic dependence and environmental degradation. Therefore, it is time to promote sustainable tourism, which creates income opportunities for local populations. It can also enhance understanding and friendship between nations, increase environmental awareness and protect the natural and cultural heritages of the destination countries. In this context, we should strive to maximize the potential of tourism for eradicating poverty, by developing appropriate sustainable tourism strategies in cooperation with all major groups, indigenous and local communities.
As China's tourism industry continues to flourish, the country is poised to become the world's second-largest travel and tourism economy after the United States. The rapidly expanding tourism sector poses opportunities for innovation and product differentiation as more Chinese travel at home and abroad, and more foreign tourists visit China.
I am convinced that China's leadership in placing tourism as a priority for its development, and an effective tool for poverty alleviation, will be an inspiration to all participants in the conference. China is a large country, rich in biodiversity and ecosystems and rich in history and culture. My dream is to be able to visit all the sites with rich and unique natural and cultural heritages. Covering an area of about 1 square kilometer, the village has a history of nearly 1,000 years. It was listed as a top 10 destination for countryside tourism in Jiangxi in 2006 and a national 4A-level sightseeing area in 2007. The village is beside the Fushui River and home to 28 ponds that interconnect with each other. The government of Wenpi township, to which the village belongs, has founded a company to manage tourism in the village. A tourist center has been established with a lounge, an information office and reading areas. An annual tourism cultural festival has been held in Meibei since 2003, at which forums and seminars have been held to discuss protection of the ancient village. Local folk custom performances have been included in provincial and national cultural and art festivals. The local authority also participated with the Shenzhen radio station to organize driving campaign to attract travelers from Guangdong province, Hong Kong and Macao.
The government compiled a series of regulations in 2007 to ensure that tourism develops with protection.
To preserve the ancient village while improving living conditions, many villagers have moved to newly built apartment buildings outside the village since 2013.
The Guian New Area Comprehensive Bonded Zone in Guizhou province will strongly support regional economic development, local officials said. The bonded zone will be an important platform to strengthen communication between Guian New Area and the outside world.
Ma said the zone will grow into a demonstration area for industrial upgrades and a role model for promoting opening-up in Chinas inland areas. The first phase of the zone, including six roads, warehouse facilities and an information-sharing system, was completed in eight months. The Guian New Area government vows to pay more attention to innovation and ecology to strengthen the zones competitiveness. Local officials said they will highlight the coordination between growth and ecology and they will stick to five principles for development: innovation, coordination, green growth, openness and resource sharing. The local government said it will prioritize an innovation-driven strategy to support the bonded zones development. Guian will have better economic structure with support from the bonded zone, said Wang Bing, deputy chief of the zones administrative committee. The zone will explore new growth models to better serve core industries such as advanced equipment, biotechnology and modern services. According to local statistics, 15 investment projects have established offices in the bonded zone with investment of 2 billion yuan ($307 million).
Tellhow E-style, the internet-based big data industrial park in Guian New Area, Guizhou province, will welcome its first batch of businesses in the second half of the year. The park, jointly developed by Tencent and Tellhow Group, is the first of its kind in China, claims the local government.
Developers said companies there will enjoy office facilities, commuting facilities, healthcare, online trading and property management services.


Tellhow E-styles operation model is completely different from traditional industrial parks, said Qiu Jun, general manager of Tellhow Groups Guizhou branch.
We will use big data technologies to analyze the common features and uniqueness of businesses to help them lower costs and enhance efficiency, Qiu said.
Tellhow is one of the companies that participated in setting up Chinas smart city standards.
Tellhow has supported several government projects in Guian over the past few years including its recent cloud system development, Qiu said. The parks construction will be completed in 2020 to serve 800 companies, said Jiang Bing, customer relations manager at Tellhow. Tellhow Guian Digital and Cultural Industrial Park, which is a part of Tellhow E-style, has attracted more than 30 leading companies, including Tencent, IBM and Frank Russell. The partnership between the Guian government, Tencent and Tellhow will accelerate Guians smart city development, said Ma Changqing, Party chief and head of the administrative committee of Guian New Area. Li Guoping from Peking University said local developers have to consider more about service quality in the parks construction process so as to support businesses growth. Editors note: In less than five years since its establishment, Guian New Area has proved to be a hot destination for international and domestic investors in big data and related industries. Guizhou is a crucial strategic center for China to develop technologies of data centers and the partnership (the chip plant in Guian) is a great win-win opportunity for Qualcomm and Guizhou to seize Chinas huge market for data center technologies. We are proud that we have delivered our globally leading data center into a tunnel in Guian to process data for our advanced manufacturing.
Guian is a national-level experimental zone for the big data industry, hosting a great number of data centers by domestic and international companies. We recently signed an agreement with Guian for developing a big data-based smart agriculture project.
Guian New Area in Southwest Chinas Guizhou province plans to highlight the emerging big data industry to drive its economic growth, according to the local government. The 1,795-square-kilometer new area consists of 20 townships formerly belonging to the cities of Guiyang and Anshun.
Since its establishment, the local authorities have made big data and its related electronics industry a priority for development. According to the general development plan for the new area released by the local government, Guians goal is to develop a green data center with international influence, a nationally leading innovation and application base for big data, an intelligent IT terminals manufacturing base in western China, an integrated circuit production base and a hub for cross-border big data transactions. A green data center refers to facilities for the data storage and management in which the mechanical, lighting, electrical and computer systems are designed for maximum energy efficiency and minimum environmental impact.
In addition, the plan also highlights big data-led information and electronics sectors as well as such industries as e-commerce, software outsourcing, smart city development and internet-based finance.
According to the local government, more than 400 enterprises had registered in the new area by the end of 2015. From January 2015 to March 2016, a total of 1.96 billion yuan had been invested in infrastructure construction, as 34 key projects were well underway, laying a solid foundation for the areas future development. Renowned companies from home and abroad have opened or plan to open operations in Guian, including Foxconn, Huawei, Qualcomm, China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, Microsoft, IBM, Sina and Centrin Data Systems.
Foxconn said its output value is expected to reach 10 billion yuan this year, creating more than 20,000 jobs.
The countrys three biggest telecom operators China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom have data centers in Guian.
On March 2, Guian New Area held an investment promotion in Beijing, signing agreements for 16 big projects worth 16.1 billion yuan in investment with domestic and overseas investors.
Local authorities expect the big data industry will have great significance for Guians development.
Ma Changqing, Party chief and head of the administrative committee of Guian New Area, said the big data industry will play an important role in helping Guian build a modern industrial system, create more jobs and improve administrative efficiency by developing a smart city and communities. Ma said Guian has recently launched a smart city operation center, using a cloud platform to facilitate the administration for a range of sectors including medical care, social welfare, education, transportation, tourism, environmental protection and poverty relief. The center can lead to a better connection between the government and residents and help people access more public resources, Ma said.
Singapore-Sichuan joint venture focuses on biomedical sciences and interactive digital media, Li Yu and Peng Chao report. Singapore-Sichuan Hi-Tech Innovation Park (SSCIP), an integrated modern new town that serves innovation-driven enterprises and creative talents, jointly developed by Singapore and Sichuan province, is looking for investors in the United States, Japan and Europe, mainly in the fields of biomedical sciences and interactive digital media. The park will house five main sectors: biomedical sciences, interactive digital media, environmental technologies, high-end manufacturing and assembly and producer services, said Kelvin Teo, CEO of Sembcorp Development, one of the shareholders of Sino-Singapore (Chengdu) Innovation Park Development Co Ltd, developer of the SSCIP.
A design sketch of the western part of the Xinchuan Heartbeat Central Park at the Singapore-Sichuan Hi-Tech Innovation Park. The five sectors were selected based on the existing complete industry chains and the strong base of intellectual human resource capital of Chengdu and Singapore, Teo said. In order to forge stronger links with the foreign business community, Teo said the park has established a presence in California and Singapore. Construction work on the park, which is located in the southern part of the Chengdu High-Tech Zone (CDHT), began in 2012 and it is expected that all infrastructure will be completed by 2020.
Through the introduction of the Singapore experience, SSCIP is positioned to become a modern, high-end business-cum-residential cluster that will attract both domestic and foreign talents. Tremendous progress was made last year with construction work on the park, according to Teo. Another initiative, the Tianfu New Area Cultural Center, with a building area of nearly 100,000 square meters, is expected to open in early 2018. The complex consists of an arts performance center, an arts recreation center and an exhibition hall to stage world-class performances. Joint projects between China and Singapore commenced in the mid-1990s and were initially centered in China's coastal provinces.
As a result, Sembcorp focused on the country's southwestern cities and eventually chose to invest in Chengdu.
Teo said Sembcorp chose Chengdu not only because of its strategic location, livable environment, efficient government and abundant talent, but also due to its huge market coverage and strong industry capability and resources, especially in the fields of biomedical sciences and IT. Teo said the SSCIP will serve as a platform for global companies to benefit from the very best of both Singapore and China and participate in the growth of China's vast western and central regions. The SSCIP has benefited from advanced planning and cutting-edge concepts, from development to construction. In order to better serve the talent and innovative enterprises setting up there, Teo said the park includes carefully planned residential and commercial elements, with all work and live amenities within walking distance. He said the park will encourage high-end high-value manufacturing that can be conducted in an office or clean-room setting. The park will also incorporate the "neighborhood center" concept among its residential properties, which will improve residents' accessibility to basic needs such as healthcare and community services, he said.
The development of the park is backed by a series of national strategies, such as the Belt and Road Initiative, the Yangtze River Economic Belt development, the State-level Tianfu New Area and the latest plan to develop the Chengdu-Chongqing city cluster. During President Xi Jinping's visit to Singapore last November, the two countries announced the launch of the third government-to-government project between China and Singapore, with an operation center in Chongqing.
Teo believes that the third government-to-government project will also benefit the development of the park. The Chongqing project focuses on modern connectivity and the modern service industry to form a network across China's vast western region that will promote local social and economic development, according to Teo.
Lu Xianping, CEO and chief scientific officer of Chipscreen Biosciences Ltd, one of the first key projects registered in the park, said the park is a crucial part of the city's reinvention as a center of innovation.

The World Wide Web (abbreviated as WWW or W3, commonly known as the Web), is a system of interlinked hypertext documents accessed via the Internet. Using concepts from his earlier hypertext systems like ENQUIRE, British engineer, computer scientist and at that time employee of CERN, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, now Director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), wrote a proposal in March 1989 for what would eventually become the World Wide Web. In March 1989, Tim Berners-Lee wrote a proposal that referenced ENQUIRE, a database and software project he had built in 1980, and described a more elaborate information management system.
With help from Robert Cailliau, he published a more formal proposal (on 12 November 1990) to build a "Hypertext project" called "WorldWideWeb" (one word, also "W3") as a "web" of "hypertext documents" to be viewed by " browsers" using a client–server architecture. The proposal was modeled after the Dynatext SGML reader by Electronic Book Technology, a spin-off from the Institute for Research in Information and Scholarship at Brown University. The crucial underlying concept of hypertext originated with older projects from the 1960s, such as the Hypertext Editing System (HES) at Brown University, Ted Nelson's Project Xanadu, and Douglas Engelbart's oN-Line System (NLS). The World Wide Web had a number of differences from other hypertext systems that were then available. Robert Cailliau, Jean-François Abramatic of IBM, and Tim Berners-Lee at the 10th anniversary of the World Wide Web Consortium.
Scholars generally agree that a turning point for the World Wide Web began with the introduction of the Mosaic web browser in 1993, a graphical browser developed by a team at the National Centre for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (NCSA-UIUC), led by Marc Andreessen. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) was founded by Tim Berners-Lee after he left the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in October 1994. Connected by the existing Internet, other websites were created around the world, adding international standards for domain names and HTML. The terms Internet and World Wide Web are often used in everyday speech without much distinction. Viewing a web page on the World Wide Web normally begins either by typing the URL of the page into a web browser or by following a hyperlink to that page or resource. The computer receiving the HTTP request delivers it to web server software listening for requests on port 80.
The web browser parses the HTML, interpreting the markup (, for paragraph, and such) that surrounds the words in order to draw the text on the screen. Many web pages use HTML to reference the URLs of other resources such as images, other embedded media, scripts that affect page behaviour, and Cascading Style Sheets that affect page layout. Most web pages contain hyperlinks to other related pages and perhaps to downloadable files, source documents, definitions and other web resources.
Such a collection of useful, related resources, interconnected via hypertext links is dubbed a web of information. The hyperlink structure of the WWW is described by the webgraph: the nodes of the webgraph correspond to the web pages (or URLs) the directed edges between them to the hyperlinks. Over time, many web resources pointed to by hyperlinks disappear, relocate, or are replaced with different content. JavaScript is a scripting language that was initially developed in 1995 by Brendan Eich, then of Netscape, for use within web pages. Many domain names used for the World Wide Web begin with www because of the long-standing practice of naming Internet hosts (servers) according to the services they provide. The use of a subdomain name is useful for load balancing incoming web traffic by creating a CNAME record that points to a cluster of web servers.
Use of the www prefix is declining as Web 2.0 web applications seek to brand their domain names and make them easily pronounceable. Every time a web page is requested from a web server the server can identify, and usually it logs, the IP address from which the request arrived.
When a web page asks for, and the user supplies, personally identifiable information such as their real name, address, e-mail address, etc., then a connection can be made between the current web traffic and that individual. Social networking sites make a point of trying to get the user to truthfully expose their real names, interests and locations.
Photographs and videos posted onto websites have caused particular problems, as they can add a person's face to an on-line profile.
Many users of the web erroneously assume that everything they may find on line is freely available to them as if it was in the public domain.
Many formal standards and other technical specifications and software define the operation of different aspects of the World Wide Web, the Internet, and computer information exchange. Uniform Resource Identifier ( URI), which is a universal system for referencing resources on the Internet, such as hypertext documents and images. There are methods available for accessing the web in alternative mediums and formats, so as to enable use by individuals with disabilities.
The W3C Internationalization Activity assures that web technology will work in all languages, scripts, and cultures. Between 2005 and 2010, the number of Web users doubled, and was expected to surpass two billion in 2010. Statistics measuring a website's popularity are usually based either on the number of page views or on associated server ' hits' (file requests) that it receives.
Frustration over congestion issues in the Internet infrastructure and the high latency that results in slow browsing has led to a pejorative name for the World Wide Web: the World Wide Wait. If a user revisits a Web page after only a short interval, the page data may not need to be re-obtained from the source Web server. Wikipedia for Schools is a selection taken from the original English-language Wikipedia by the child sponsorship charity SOS Children. This dental procedure is carried out when the innermost part of the tooth, ‘the pulp’, becomes badly decayed or infected.
To save the tooth, the infected pulp needs to be removed to prevent the formation of an abscess. We carry high quality candles with the best ingredients in a wide variety of options from traditional scented candles to unscented candles and battery operated candles with timers.

With the number of such accidents climbing, some cities, such as Shenzhen, have reinforced curbs on motorbikes.
We cannot do away with motorcycles because we rely too much on them to do express deliveries. By flexible I mean riders don't have to adhere to the rules of the roads as strictly as car drivers do, although some drive as fast or even faster.
I had had breakfast delivered to my hotel room one morning with the help of a take-out service app. Big crowds at restaurants are a thing of the past, and owners increasingly rely on online orders. Many goods are sold online with a small amount of or no postage fees at all, and many people order things and return them in short order for a refund because they are dissatisfied with what they got. Chinese private delivery companies charge only 12 yuan per piece on average, less than one-tenth of the price of foreign companies such as DHL. We always hear about how important delayed gratification is in bringing up children but forget that this principle applies to adults, too. More importantly, they hold the key to reducing the risk of those making deliveries to us paying for it with their lives. I can't have been older than 8, and she stood in the kitchen when I shouted, "What's for f-ing dinner?" My legs were stinging when I went to bed that night, and I certainly didn't get any dinner. All my friends were using such words, and I'd heard my dad and older brother use them often enough.
While it didn't stop me using bad language, it did teach me that using it at the wrong time can land you in a heap of trouble.
And yes, there is little use for them in most polite social situations, especially in the presence of children. If you give a child access to a computer or mobile device, you should be responsible for what they see and do. What this says to me is that she is actually catering to an audience that wants her no-nonsense, bad-mouthed style of comedy. The 30-year-old was nominated as a representative for the G20 international volunteers by the city government two months ago, after he was named as the first official foreign volunteer shortly after Hangzhou was selected as G20 host at the end of 2015.
Clancy, whose wife comes from Jinhua, Zhejiang province, is fluent in both Mandarin and Cantonese. After majoring in electrical engineering at Sydney's University of Technology, he traveled to China in 2007 to study, through an international cultural exchange. Together with his wife, he set up a group to help foreigners that offers advice and tips on everything from seeing a doctor, to helping children find places in school, to assisting people in renting flats.
Clancy was determined to put his skills to good use in helping local people as well as foreigners.
He has to finish all courses in Chinese in five years before he can obtain a medical qualification and practice in China.
Now, the number of international tourists and the volume of tourism revenue in G20 economies accounts for 70 percent of the world's total. In recent history, it was home to Chiang Kai-shek and Chiang Ching-kuo, making it a treasure house for research into the history of the Republic of China (1912-1949).
Wuzhen is a beautiful area that is representative of Jiangnan (the area south of the Yangtze River) and its old towns. The attractions boast a Lotus Village, the Chinese Hu Writing Brush Museum, the Home of Chen Yingshi, Feiying Park, the Feiying Tower and the Temple of the Iron Buddha. As one of only two family temples for Confucius in China, the Nanzong family temple has a history that can be traced back more than 800 years. Located at Jinyun county in Lishui, the Xiandu scenic spot gets its name from the writings of Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907) emperor Li Longji. Mobile payment options are present in all aspects of daily life, accounting for as much as 65 percent of total online payments.
Users can rent an electric new energy car through the accompanying app and the entire process, from registration to booking and payments, can be done on your mobile phone. Although there are not many internet buses on the road right now, they are gaining in popularity. All of these businesses accept mobile payments and some also offer special discounts to customers. More than 200 delegates from G20 member countries, guest countries and international organizations attended. The G20 has a powerful role to play in exhibiting leadership on women's issues and in the formulation and execution of economic policies at all levels. The W20 has a role as a monitoring body to track the allocation of resources by sex, and to support governments in implementing gender-responsive budgets. We are not only aiming to achieve gender equality, but also implementing various development goals.
Once women are independent financially, they are no longer dependent on men, making them less vulnerable and stronger," she added.
Women do not have to leave their homes or travel to factories, but they can do their work at home, in front of their farm or at the school gate when picking up their children from school," Yan said.
Many of them have received notable awards, both at home and abroad," said Mu Hong, director of the international communication department of the All-China Women's Federation. There will be several themed forums for participants to exchange ideas on economic and business matters. The events will promote the development of a range of sectors, including tourism, talent services, finance, regional development, expos and services for foreign companies, according to the organizers. For instance, Ningbo will host a summit to promote global cooperation on the development of new-energy vehicles such as plug-in electric cars. Organizers said that the exhibition hall will be separated into five main areas, including zones for homeware and decoration, kitchen and bathroom products, import businesses, service trades, and small and medium-sized factories. Companies will demonstrate their achievements and latest research in a number of sectors, including high-speed rail, new-energy vehicles, telecommunications and power generation. A total of 185 business contracts and agreements were signed at the expo, according to the Ningbo government. Though China's tourism industry is behind in its development compared to other countries, the nation has emerged as a major destination for tourism and has maintained strong growth momentum.
Tourism will serve as a means to deliver a greater sense of gains and real benefits to the people.
We are willing to create enabling conditions for companies to invest in overseas markets by holding international tourism fairs, tourism investment forums and tourism business roundtables. China, which is rich in diverse tourism resources, reported 130 million international tourist arrivals in 2015. The number stood at 120 million last year, a marked surge compared with 2.98 million in 1992, according to government statistics. The number of inbound tourist trips has increased from 1.8 million in 1978 to 130 million last year. China has been and remains by far the fastest-growing tourism source market in the world and in Denmark we have also had the pleasure of experiencing a significant growth in tourism from China.
As we are celebrating US-China Tourism Year in 2016, US industries and government are working together to welcome increasing numbers of Chinese visitors.
Today, tourism contributes to global GDP like never before - but our challenge is to ensure much greater economic empowerment at the regional level and in local communities. The sector has a unique ability to act as a powerful engine for advancing sustainable development.
The conference provides a timely platform for identifying best practices, lessons learned and for exchanges of experience. Accounting for 10 percent of the world's GDP, the sector has a vast potential to address some of the world's most pressing challenges.
Moreover, tourism can help us build a more tolerant and peaceful society through the millions of encounters that take place every day around the world. It is included in three of the goals for its capacity to promote economic growth, local culture and better resource management. I hope to see both the tourism industry and tourists themselves practice sustainable tourism.
Many of the buildings were constructed during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, including schools, temples, shrines and sculptures.
Local residents believe the ponds represent the 28 constellations in the heaven in traditional Chinese legends and protect the village.
That number increased to 80,000 in 2013 and it welcomed more than 100,000 visitors in 2014. It has invested more than 8 million yuan ($1.2 million) since 2006 to improve the village's infrastructure in fields including transportation, service facilities and safety.
New residences are not allowed without permission, and buildings with different fashions from the ancient village will be redecorated. Primary and middle schools in the township often organize visits to the village, teaching the students to treasure the cultural relics and protect the natural environment. It is a solid foundation for building a demonstration area for Guizhous opening-up, said Ma Changqing, Party chief and head of the administrative committee of Guian New Area. Office and urban facilities were also built during the first phase, allowing companies to begin operations immediately after moving into the zone. It maintained high standards in construction and investment projects selection, said Li Zhihui, one of the appraisal experts and also deputy director at the processing trade and bonded system department of the General Administration of Customs. The zone will cut unnecessary administrative procedures, promote free trade and provide market-oriented financial services in the coming years. The first-phase project, covering 100,000 square meters, is slated to be completed this year. Our business achieved outstanding results in sectors such as smart energy, smart healthcare and smart government system design. The system can also help shops in the park deliver goods to buyers in 15 minutes, Jiang added. We believe there will be many companies looking to establish offices in the park, Qiu said. It will not be a good industrial park if there is no professional service team and long-term development goal, Li said.


In recent interviews, executives of the companies praised the environment and growth potential of the area, the preferential policies offered by the government, as well as the enterprising and practical spirits of the local officials.
A company focusing on the construction and application of educational big data platforms, Zhanneng Technologies has received crucial policy support from the local government. We are optimistic about the project because of Guizhous excellent ecology and the strong support of Guians big data industry. The practical and enterprising spirits of local officials were one of the factors that helped us make that decision.
It became a national-level new area in January 2014 with the approval of the State Council. It is designed as a new economic driver and a demonstration area for opening-up and eco-friendly development in Guizhou province. From January 2015 to March 2016, the facility produced 7.3 billion yuan worth of products, including smartphones for the Huawei, Xiaomi and Meizu brands. With the completion of their first-phase construction last year, these facilities now can accommodate more than 100,000 servers. The projects include big data centers for medical imaging, modern agriculture and cloud-based payment, and also cover such fields as smart manufacturing and internet-plus automaking. The park covers 10.34 square kilometers and is designed to accommodate innovation-driven enterprises, technology and a residential population of between 120,000 and 150,000. The road system's trunk roads were completed and opened to traffic and the west part of Xinchuan Heartbeat Central Park, which features green spaces and public amenities, is expected to be completed soon. Three other major projects are also under construction, including two incubation parks - New Generation IT Incubation Park and Biomedical Innovation Park invested by Chengdu High-Tech Investment Group and an operation base of OPPO, a well-known Chinese mobile phone manufacturer. This changed in 2011 when Sembcorp leveraged on the opening of China's western region as an investment hub for the region. All economic activities will largely be based on HQ control towers, R&D and back-end service centers. Chipscreen developed Chidamide, a first approved selective HDAC inhibitor for cancer treatment, and Chiglitazar, a configuration-restricted PPAR pan agonist, for type 2 diabetes in phase III development in China. The park is planned to be a cluster of both industry and residential areas, and its facilities and infrastructure are reasonably well developed, which is appealing to us," Lu said.
With a web browser, one can view web pages that may contain text, images, videos, and other multimedia, and navigate between them via hyperlinks. At CERN, a European research organisation near Geneva situated on Swiss and French soil, Berners-Lee and Belgian computer scientist Robert Cailliau proposed in 1990 to use hypertext "to link and access information of various kinds as a web of nodes in which the user can browse at will", and they publicly introduced the project in December of the same year.
Clarke predicted that satellites would someday "bring the accumulated knowledge of the world to your fingertips" using a console that would combine the functionality of the photocopier, telephone, television and a small computer, allowing data transfer and video conferencing around the globe. The Dynatext system, licensed by CERN, was technically advanced and was a key player in the extension of SGML ISO 8879:1986 to Hypermedia within HyTime, but it was considered too expensive and had an inappropriate licensing policy for use in the general high energy physics community, namely a fee for each document and each document alteration. Both Nelson and Engelbart were in turn inspired by Vannevar Bush's microfilm-based " memex", which was described in the 1945 essay " As We May Think". In his book Weaving The Web, he explains that he had repeatedly suggested that a marriage between the two technologies was possible to members of both technical communities, but when no one took up his invitation, he finally tackled the project himself. Since then, Berners-Lee has played an active role in guiding the development of web standards (such as the markup languages in which web pages are composed), and in recent years has advocated his vision of a Semantic Web. The web browser then initiates a series of communication messages, behind the scenes, in order to fetch and display it.
The browser then requests the resource by sending an HTTP request across the Internet to the computer at that particular address. The browser will make additional HTTP requests to the web server for these other Internet media types.
This makes hyperlinks obsolete, a phenomenon referred to in some circles as link rot and the hyperlinks affected by it are often called dead links.
The hostname for a web server is often www, in the same way that it may be ftp for an FTP server, and news or nntp for a USENET news server. Since, currently, only a subdomain can be used in a CNAME, the same result cannot be achieved by using the bare domain root.
Unlike www, which has no specific purpose, these specify the communication protocol to be used for the request and response. This means delivery of HTML documents and any additional content that may be included by a document, such as images, style sheets and scripts. Equally, unless set not to do so, most web browsers record the web pages that have been requested and viewed in a history feature, and usually cache much of the content locally. If the website uses HTTP cookies, username and password authentication, or other tracking techniques, then it will be able to relate other web visits, before and after, to the identifiable information provided.
This makes the social networking experience more realistic and therefore engaging for all their users. With modern and potential facial recognition technology, it may then be possible to relate that face with other, previously anonymous, images, events and scenarios that have been imaged elsewhere.
Web users who want to publish their work onto the World Wide Web, however, need to be aware of the details of the way they do it. This is almost never the case, unless the web site publishing the work clearly states that it is. Cybercrime carried out on the Web can include identity theft, fraud, espionage and intelligence gathering.
Many of the documents are the work of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), headed by Berners-Lee, but some are produced by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and other organizations. These disabilities may be visual, auditory, physical, speech related, cognitive, neurological, or some combination therin. Beginning in 2004 or 2005, Unicode gained ground and eventually in December 2007 surpassed both ASCII and Western European as the Web's most frequently used character encoding. Speeding up the Internet is an ongoing discussion over the use of peering and QoS technologies. Corporate and academic firewalls often cache Web resources requested by one user for the benefit of all. This is where the collection of pus from the root tip is draining, which will leave a bad taste in your mouth. These soy-based candles have lasting fragrances, rich colors, longer and cleaner burning, and unique and appealing textures. Pulling inspiration from fashion and home, they take striking visuals and twist them with complex fragrance to create engaging combination for your senses. In fact I, too, have almost collided with motorcycle delivery people, who seem to pay little or no attention to traffic lights and appear from nowhere at intersections. Before you say that drones are the answer, ultimately the things you order on the internet will have to be delivered to your door by a human being. In fact some have become so swept up by the take-out business that the patrons who frequent their establishments complain that they are now treated like second-rate guests. In addition, fierce competition among delivery companies has forced them to reduce delivery fees. He can also communicate in Japanese, Korean, Italian and Turkish, as well as his native English.
After a spell as a software engineer in a high-tech printing company in Sydney, he moved back to China in 2011.
China, which is hosting the G20 summit this year, is now the world's largest tourism market for both domestic and outbound travelers. The scenic area of Xikou is 85 sq km and mainly comprises four attractions - the former residence of the Chiang family, the tomb of Chiang's mother, Xuedou Hill and Tingxia Lake. It was established more than 1,300 years ago and is seen as the "last site of waterside households in China". It was the first museum to commemorate a celebrity in Zhejiang province to be founded after 1949. It is a National Historical and Cultural Site under State Protection, and has been praised as the "holy land of Confucius in the southern area" and as the "Southeast Ancestral Home". The attraction consists of four main scenic areas, and its curving stream, elegant landscape, gauzy mist, rural scenery and rustic charm complement each other.
These rewards and discounts are exclusively for customers who pay through their mobile phones. It also reduces the risks of counterfeit money," said a person from Hangzhou Market Development Service Company, who requested anonymity, but added that more local food markets in the city would launch mobile payment services next year. She added that the project provides training for contributors so that they understand the latest fashion trends and ensure their products are suited to the market. There will also be a permanent exhibition area where imported goods will be displayed throughout the year. Denmark has a lot to offer Chinese visitors, and especially our royal palaces and castles are very popular. Beginning with the extension of validity for tourist and business visas from one to 10 years in 2014, we are working to increase mutual cultural understanding and to provide visitors with an enjoyable travel experience.
Tourism development that is managed in a sustainable, responsible and environmentally friendly manner can make a real difference in developing countries that boast relatively undiscovered tourism gems. On 6 August 1991, he posted a short summary of the World Wide Web project on the alt.hypertext newsgroup.
This made it possible for someone to link to another resource without action by the owner of that resource.
High-Performance Computing and Communications Initiative and the High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991, one of several computing developments initiated by U.S.
By the end of 1994, while the total number of websites was still minute compared to present standards, quite a number of notable websites were already active, many of which are the precursors or inspiration for today's most popular services. The World Wide Web enabled the spread of information over the Internet through an easy-to-use and flexible format. It makes the request to a particular application port in the underlying Internet Protocol Suite so that the computer receiving the request can distinguish an HTTP request from other network protocols it may be servicing such as e-mail delivery; the HTTP protocol normally uses port 80.
As it receives their content from the web server, the browser progressively renders the page onto the screen as specified by its HTML and these additional resources. To make web pages more interactive, some web applications also use JavaScript techniques such as Ajax ( asynchronous JavaScript and XML). This feature started appearing in early versions of Mozilla Firefox, when it still had the working title 'Firebird' in early 2003, from an earlier practice in browsers such as Lynx.
The HTTP protocol is fundamental to the operation of the World Wide Web and the added encryption layer in HTTPS is essential when confidential information such as passwords or banking information are to be exchanged over the public Internet. Unless HTTPS encryption is used, web requests and responses travel in plain text across the internet and they can be viewed, recorded and cached by intermediate systems. In this way it is possible for a web-based organisation to develop and build a profile of the individual people who use its site or sites. On the other hand, photographs uploaded and unguarded statements made will be identified to the individual, who may regret some decisions to publish these data. Because of image caching, mirroring and copying, it is difficult to remove an image from the World Wide Web.
If artwork, photographs, writings, poems, or technical innovations are published by their creator onto a privately owned web server, then they may choose the copyright and other conditions freely themselves. On the other hand, content owners are aware of this widespread belief, and expect that sooner or later almost everything that is published will probably be used in some capacity somewhere without their permission.
Web-based vulnerabilities now outnumber traditional computer security concerns, and as measured by Google, about one in ten web pages may contain malicious code. Some have argued that for enterprise to see security as a business opportunity rather than a cost centre, "ubiquitous, always-on digital rights management" enforced in the infrastructure by a handful of organizations must replace the hundreds of companies that today secure data and networks. Accessibility features also help others with temporary disabilities like a broken arm or the aging population as their abilities change.
According to a 2001 study, there were a massive number, over 550 billion, of documents on the Web, mostly in the invisible Web, or Deep Web.
HTTP requests sent by a browser will usually ask only for data that has changed since the last download. They sell seasonal or annual membership cards for which food will be delivered free of charge an unlimited number of times.
Today, the former residence of Lu Xun has become a historic street that possesses the unique Southern Yangtze cultural glamour and is a place where people can interpret the authentic meaning of the writer's works. There are two priceless treasures in the temple: a wooden portrait of Confucius with his wife Qiguan. This date also marked the debut of the Web as a publicly available service on the Internet.
It also significantly reduced the difficulty of implementing web servers and browsers (in comparison to earlier systems), but in turn presented the chronic problem of link rot. It is reported that Microsoft was granted a US patent for the same idea in 2008, but only for mobile devices. The English writer Douglas Adams once quipped in The Independent on Sunday (1999): "The World Wide Web is the only thing I know of whose shortened form takes three times longer to say than what it's short for".
It may be able to build a record for an individual that includes information about their leisure activities, their shopping interests, their profession, and other aspects of their demographic profile.
Employers, schools, parents and other relatives may be influenced by aspects of social networking profiles that the posting individual did not intend for these audiences. This is unusual though; more commonly work is uploaded to web sites and servers that are owned by other organizations.
Many publishers therefore embed visible or invisible digital watermarks in their media files, sometimes charging users to receive unmarked copies for legitimate use.
Most Web-based attacks take place on legitimate websites, and most, as measured by Sophos, are hosted in the United States, China and Russia.
The Web is used for receiving information as well as providing information and interacting with society. Apart from the facilities built into Web servers that can determine when files have been updated and so need to be re-sent, designers of dynamically generated Web pages can control the HTTP headers sent back to requesting users, so that transient or sensitive pages are not cached.

Luminara candles display Disney patented technology, as seen in The Haunted Mansion at DisneyWorld and Disneyland, and are so realistic they are often mistaken for traditional flame candles.Wannemaker’s carries a wide variety of battery operated candles in five pillar lengths.
When the delivery fee is negligible, it is hardly surprising that people place small and more frequent orders.
It is surrounded by a canal and is crisscrossed by rivers, with an East Gate, South Gate, West Gate and North Gate. Visitors can also experience the scenery depicted in writings and feel something of life in Lu's era.
Unlike predecessors such as HyperCard, the World Wide Web was non-proprietary, making it possible to develop servers and clients independently and to add extensions without licensing restrictions.
Prior to the release of Mosaic, graphics were not commonly mixed with text in web pages and the Web's popularity was less than older protocols in use over the Internet, such as Gopher and Wide Area Information Servers (WAIS).
Although the two terms are sometimes conflated in popular use, World Wide Web is not synonymous with Internet. It is a collection of text documents and other resources, linked by hyperlinks and URLs, usually accessed by web browsers from web servers. It depends upon the terms and conditions of the site or service provider to what extent the original owner automatically signs over rights to their work by the choice of destination and by the act of uploading.
The World Wide Web Consortium claims it essential that the Web be accessible in order to provide equal access and equal opportunity to people with disabilities. A more recent study, which used Web searches in 75 different languages to sample the Web, determined that there were over 11.5 billion Web pages in the publicly indexable Web as of the end of January 2005.
It has maintained a number of unique Jiang-nan-style residences that date back to the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties.
On 30 April 1993, CERN announced that the World Wide Web would be free to anyone, with no fees due. Mosaic's graphical user interface allowed the Web to become, by far, the most popular Internet protocol. Many established websites still use 'www', or they invent other subdomain names such as 'www2', 'secure', etc. Tim Berners-Lee's web-space states that World Wide Web is officially spelled as three separate words, each capitalised, with no intervening hyphens.
Depending on the website's terms and conditions and the local laws that apply information from these profiles may be sold, shared, or passed to other organisations without the user being informed. Through HTML and URIs the Web was vulnerable to attacks like cross-site scripting (XSS) that came with the introduction of JavaScript and were exacerbated to some degree by Web 2.0 and Ajax web design that favors the use of scripts. The decision about expiration is made independently for each downloaded file, whether image, stylesheet, JavaScript, HTML, or other web resource. Coming two months after the announcement that the server implementation of the Gopher protocol was no longer free to use, this produced a rapid shift away from Gopher and towards the Web. Tim Berners-Lee was knighted in 2004 by Queen Elizabeth II for his contribution to the World Wide Web. For many ordinary people, this means little more than some unexpected e-mails in their in-box, or some uncannily relevant advertising on a future web page.
Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect." Many countries regulate web accessibility as a requirement for websites.
On 25 July 2008, Google software engineers Jesse Alpert and Nissan Hajaj announced that Google Search had discovered one trillion unique URLs.
Thus even on sites with highly dynamic content, many of the basic resources need to be refreshed only occasionally.

For others, it can mean that time spent indulging an unusual interest can result in a deluge of further targeted marketing that may be unwelcome. International cooperation in the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative led to simple guidelines that web content authors as well as software developers can use to make the Web accessible to persons who may or may not be using assistive technology. Web site designers find it worthwhile to collate resources such as CSS data and JavaScript into a few site-wide files so that they can be cached efficiently.
Law enforcement, counter terrorism and espionage agencies can also identify, target and track individuals based on what appear to be their interests or proclivities on the web.

Paul Weindling, history of medicine professor at Oxford Brookes University, describes his search for the lost victims of Nazi experiments. The chairman of the board at ESL a€” then proprietor of the desert wasteland in Nevada known as a€?Area 51a€? a€” was William Perry, who would be appointed secretary of defense several years later. EUCACH.ORG PanelIn a 2-hour wide-ranging Panel with Alfred Lambremont Webre on the Transhumanist Agenda, Magnus Olsson, Dr. Henning Witte, and Melanie Vritschan, three experts from the European Coalition Against Covert Harassment, revealed recent technological advances in human robotization and nano implant technologies, and an acceleration of what Melanie Vritschan characterized as a a€?global enslavement programa€?.Shift from electromagnetic to scalar wavesThese technologies have now shifted from electromagnetic wave to scalar waves and use super quantum computers in the quantum cloud to control a€?pipesa€? a reference to the brains of humans that have been taken over via DNA, via implants that can be breathed can breach the blood-brain barrier and then controlled via scalar waved on a super-grid.
Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said. People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines.
If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained. These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound. Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant. We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments. Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products.
We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society. In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia.
They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories.
The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity.
However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results. One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed. However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure.
One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem. Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility. Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities.
One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have. The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach.
Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour. Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close.
Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with.
There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing. In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants.
Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings.
While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip. If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments. Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects. Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery.
He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime. We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit. The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months.
Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling. I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms. Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat.
