Builders will break ground this summer on the Vista Tower, a 95-story condominium and hotel complex that will be Chicago's third-largest skyscraper, the two companies and Chicago city officials said in a statement.
Last week, affiliates of Chicago-based Magellan Development Group and Beijing-based Wanda Group completed a land purchase for the building, which will have 406 residential units, the 200-room Wanda Vista luxury hotel and approximately 9,000 square feet of retail space.
Developers said the project would employ 2,000 construction workers and, eventually, 500 permanent, full-time employees in the completed building. An executive for the Chinese hotel chain said the Chicago building would represent the company's signature project. The building will be located near Chicago's Lake Michigan shoreline at the end of the city's Upper Wacker Drive, south of the Chicago River. China will support the education of religious professionals to ensure they receive training that will fully prepare them to carry out their duties in away that will build trust with believers, President Xi Jinping said at a recent religious affairs conference in Beijing. As a result, the next generation of religious professionals and leaders, such as those studying at the China Islamic Institute in Beijing, will play an important role in guiding their congregations and ensuring that they follow the path of peace. After four years of study, the graduates can recite the Quran in flawless, unaccented Arabic. The team is made up of officials from the Cyberspace Administration of China, the National Health and Family Planning Commission and the State Administration for Industry and Commerce-the regulator of online advertisement. Jiang Jun, spokesman for the CAC, which is the country's internet regulator, said the results of the investigation will be made public.
The parents of Wei Zexi, a computer science major at Xidian University in Shaanxi province who died of a rare form of cancer, wait outside a funeral home in Xianyang, Shaanxi, on April 13.
Nasdaq-listed Baidu has been under mounting public pressure since a couple said online that their 21-year-old son died of cancer after receiving immunotherapy at a hospital in Beijing.
Wei Zexi, a computer science major at Xidian University in Shaanxi province, died from synovial sarcoma, a rare cancer of the soft tissue, on April 12. The treatment was administered at the biological treatment center of the Second Hospital of the Beijing Armed Police Corps.
The parents said their son learned of the treatment and the hospital by researching the disease on Baidu, and that the hospital was listed second from the top on the first page of search results.
Before Wei's death, he also had posted about his experience on the Q&A website Zhihu, calling the treatment useless and criticizing Baidu's paid listing practice. Compared with other search engines such as Google, which clearly marks search results that are advertisements with a color label, Baidu's paid listing results do not have clear labels.
Instead, they are marked by two small, gray characters denoting the listing as a paid promotion. In a media statement, Wei's parents said: "We don't want any compensation, nor will we sue any organizations or individuals. In Wei's posting, he said other public hospitals had told him his days could be numbered, since end stage cancer had been diagnosed in 2014.
The young man's case stirred public wrath in the past few days over regulation of online advertising, with the debate focusing on whether Baidu should bear responsibility for the medical promotions it offers.
Baidu said in a statement on Sunday that it will fully cooperate with the government investigation and that false online information should not be allowed. In an earlier reply on Sunday, Baidu had said it asked authorities to investigate the hospital's subcontracting of the controversial therapy. Media reported on Monday that the biological treatment center at the hospital where Wei received the therapy was not part of the hospital but was subcontracted to a private company in violation of regulations. Ying Jianming, deputy director of the Pathology Department of the Cancer Institute and Hospital at the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, said the immunotherapy treatment in question is regulated as medical science research, and thus it must not be commercially marketed or practiced as regular therapy. But in many military-affiliated hospitals such as the one Wei had been to, "it's not strictly regulated," he said, adding that in large public hospitals, "there are no such practices".
However, the possibility that such treatment might be helpful for some patients cannot be ruled out, Ying said. A terminal synovial sarcoma patient can usually live for one month to one year with mainstream therapies like surgery and chemotherapy, he said. ZhuWei, an associate professor at China University of Political Science and Law, said a detailed regulation on internet advertisement should be issued as soon as possible. The State Administration for Industry and Commerce made public a draft regulation on online advertising to solicit public opinion last summer, but no announcement has been made on its status. The first to blame in this event should be the private center and the Second Hospital of the Beijing Armed Police Corps. It's not the sole responsibility of the search company to identify information, but we need a comprehensive system and coordinated efforts from society based on business credit and government management systems. It's no surprise to see the search provider, Baidu, under the microscope because of the event, and it received massive criticism for loose supervision of advertising.
Synovial sarcoma is a rare form of cancer that can develop close to joints in the arm, neck or leg. The cancer is more common among young people than many other cancers and about 15-20 percent of cases occur in adolescents and young adults. Primary synovial sarcomas occur most often in soft tissue near large joints in the arm and leg but such cancers have been found in most human tissues and organs, including the brain, prostate and heart. Mainstream treatments include surgery to remove the tumor and a safety margin of healthy tissue, conventional chemotherapy to reduce the number of remaining microscopic cancer cells, and radiotherapy to reduce the chance of local recurrence.
The BBC reported on Monday that Wright gave some technical proof demonstrating that he had access to blocks of bitcoins known to have been created by bitcoin's originator.
In December, police raided Wright's Sydney home and office after Wired magazine named him as the probable creator of bitcoin and holder of hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of the cryptocurrency, which has attracted the interest of banks, speculators, criminals and regulators.
The treatment of bitcoins for tax purposes in Australia has been the subject of considerable debate. In a blog post dated Monday, Wright appeared to out himself as bitcoin's founder by posting a technical explanation, including examples of code, of the process by which he created the currency.
The song, called Battle Declaration, was posted on 81.cn, the PLA Daily's website, on Thursday. Previous PLA songs have been sung to the accompaniment of orchestral melodies, and their lyrics were carefully worded to avoid being too aggressive. The video shows soldiers training and exercising, fighter jets conducting dogfights and missiles being fired, among other military activities.
Almost all of the PLA's best weaponry is displayed in the video, including the aircraft carrier Liaoning, J-11 fighter jet, Type-99A tank and DF-11 ballistic missile. Satellites and spacecraft also appear in the video, which indicates the PLA has placed unprecedented importance on its space force, said a PLA publicity expert who asked to be identified only as Jiao. Moreover, the appearance of the military's space assets also intends to impress upon viewers that "the PLA is no longer the poorly equipped one that they saw from TV dramas, but a powerful force as modernized as the United States military," he told China Daily. Colonel Wu Qian, a spokesman for the Defense Ministry, said at a news conference on Thursday that a man's youth is not only about being cool, but also about being responsible for the nation and its security. When they first enthuse about a new movie, I think it must be a darn good one as it would be very difficult to get so many of them to reach a consensus otherwise.
Worse than the customary congratulations is the creation of an echo chamber inside which people automatically tune out voices of dissension.
It would take guts to find some middle ground where you cannot speak the truth but at least refrain from joining the lies, or the pomposity. The larger world of the internet is supposed to solve this problem by providing an unlimited space for news and views. With social media, you can essentially select your kindred spirits and refuse to listen to anyone who dares dissent. The PLA Navy joined countries from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in a maritime exercise on Monday, signaling a further step in recent frequent exchanges with the regional bloc. The missile destroyer Lanzhou from the PLA's South Sea Fleet, carrying a Z9C helicopter and a special operations unit, arrived in Brunei on Sunday for the joint drill under the ASEAN+8 defense ministers' meeting. The 10+8 mechanism refers to the 10-member ASEAN and eight of its partners - China, Russia, the United States, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Australia, New Zealand and India. Aimed at boosting maritime security and combating terrorism, the drill is scheduled to end on May 12 in Singapore, according to Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian.
The destroyer left Sanya, Hainan province, on Thursday and conducted a number of exercises en route. He said frequent maritime missions, such as joint drills and anti-piracy tours in the Gulf of Aden, have made the crew confident about such operations.
Senior Colonel Lai Minghe, political commissar of the Mission Command Post on the destroyer, said the drill will increase member countries' sharing of maritime information and complete the process of maritime security cooperation.
The exercise comes as Beijing seeks to broaden mutual understanding and communication with ASEAN countries.
A ruling by an international arbitration body in a process launched unilaterally by the Philippines challenging China's territorial sovereignty in the South China Sea is expected within weeks. During a Southeast Asian tour by Foreign Minister Wang Yi late last month, Brunei, Cambodia and Laos agreed with China that disputes over some of the Nansha Islands and reefs are not an issue between China and ASEAN and should not affect these relations. On Sunday, the Haikou government said it had accepted the resignation of Huang Hongru, head of the city's Xiuying district, as he had been negligent in supervising leading administrators to remove illegal houses in Qionghua, a village in Changliu township. The case resulted in serious clashes on Friday and Saturday between law enforcers such as chengguan, or urban patrol officers, and villagers who refused to allow the demolition of their houses. The clashes were announced by the government's Information Office on Monday through its micro blog.
The case triggered public outcry after a one-minute video clip of the attack was posted online during the weekend that showed some women and children being hit by demolition workers.
The government criticized the attackers, saying officers beating women and children cannot be tolerated. But it said the demolition of illegal buildings will continue, as it is part of the province's plan to become an international tourist island. Wang Wanqiong, a criminal lawyer who observed the case during the weekend, said the key is to find the root cause of the conflict and how the attack happened. On April 18, the government posted a notice to villagers, ordering them to remove the illegal buildings before April 26, or they would be demolished. Tan said the demolition workers had not agreed that villagers could remove furniture during the weekend, which had intensified the conflict.
Beijing Homelink Real Estate Brokerage Co, also known as Lianjia, said on Saturday that its 6,000 outlets will help children who have lost contact with their parents to obtain police assistance. The company said the decision forms part of a program launched by Child Safety Emergency Response, a nongovernmental organization that is devoted to helping missing children, including those who are abducted, kidnapped or run away from their parents. However, the company's decision has not been supported by the authorities, with police in at least two provincial areas saying it is not wise for children to be asked to make detours to find one of the real estate agency's outlets. The Police Internet Department at Chongqing Public Security Bureau said in a micro blog post on Saturday that it would be much better for the children to remain in the areas where they became lost, and wait for their parents to reach them.
Reports also suggested that the courier service SF Express Co would use its outlets for the same purpose.
It said that delivery couriers would be willing to help any missing children who turn to them for assistance.
Zhang Yongjiang, secretary-general of Child Safety Emergency Response, confirmed that Homelink and several other companies will form part of a program by the organization that is devoted to helping missing children to get in touch with police.
Zhang said the main aim of the program is to help children in a way similar to national information database Amber Alert in the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. On Saturday, more than 70,000 visitors flocked to the 787-meter-long, 8-meter-wide alley that has eight narrower and symmetrical alleys on either side, while more than 90,000 visited on Sunday - similar figures to the same period last year.
Urban patrol officers were sent to entrances to the alleys to ensure the implementation of the new regulation and to direct the crowds, China News Service reported. The officers initially suggested that tour groups change their plans to visit the 740-year-old alley, but when they insisted on arriving, they split them up into smaller groups and allowed them entry, Beijing Morning Post reported. To ease congestion, the subway station at the south end of the alley was only used as an exit but not an entrance when the number of visitors surged.
Despite the huge numbers of people, the crowds flowed smoothly, and no complaints were received about security and service during the weekend, the authorities in Dongcheng District said.
According to the Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development, an average of more than 30,000 people visit Nanluoguxiang each weekday, with the number rising to 50,000 during weekends.
The China National Tourism Administration said the alley is designed to cope with a maximum of 17,000 people at any one time.
The district authorities decided to introduce the ban on large tour groups last month to reduce the impact of tourists' on local residents and the potential risk posed to historic buildings. Nanluoguxiang's governing body also took the initiative to remove its rating as a National AAA Grade scenic area in the hope of reducing the influx.
The China-led multilateral development bank has identified a series of co-financing projects with the Asian Development Bank, according to a statement released by both banks on Monday. The statement came after AIIB President Jin Liqun and ADB President Takehiko Nakao signed a memorandum of understanding in Frankfurt on the sidelines of the ADB's 49th annual board of governors meeting. The first of these projects is expected to be Pakistan's M4 highway, a 64-kilometer stretch of motorway connecting Shorkot to Khanewal in Punjab province. The financing level will be $300 million, with the two banks contributing roughly an equal amount, Nakao said. Responding to questions on whether the project in Pakistan had been chosen first as a result of close ties between China and Pakistan, Nakao said this had come about "just by chance". The AIIB expects to approve about $1.2 billion in financing this year, including 12 projects with the World Bank and the ADB. A Financial Times report said earlier that besides the project in Pakistan, the AIIB is considering a road project in Tajikistan and a ring road in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Soon she was completing marathons, and before too long she was flying around the globe to participate in some of the world's best-known sporting events. This year, 150 Chinese - 106 men and 44 women - registered for the April 24 London Marathon, a race that attracts 38,000 runners annually and is one of the six top marathons in the world. His company, which specializes in organizing running training camps and tours, is among a number of enterprises serving the growing legion of Chinese runners.
Last year, just three Chinese people took part in the Jerusalem Marathon, including two who were local residents, according to Du.
More than 700 Chinese also entered the Berlin Marathon, one of the top international events, in September, he adds. The Chinese presence at international marathons also is a point of pride as an emerging China makes its mark in many global spheres.


That presence also means people from other nations have greater exposure to, and camaraderie with, sophisticated and health-conscious Chinese people.
As for first impressions, "running is much better than (going abroad to) purchase goods", says Wang Xiaogang, 40, a Beijing running coach and freelance journalist, who has frequently taken part in overseas marathons. Xie says she had one such positive experience after crossing the finish line at the Boston Marathon on a cold, rainy day in April last year.
One of the most compelling stories at the April 18 Boston Marathon this year was that of Lauren Woods, the 34-year-old Boston police officer who was running the marathon in memory of Lu Lingzi, a 23-year-old Chinese student who was one of three people killed in the 2013 bombings at the marathon finish line.
Woods was one of those who tended to Lu, a marathon fan and spectator at the event, as she lay dying.
The new Chinese marathoners who can afford to go globe-trotting are mostly within the social status and age groups that have led China's modernization and economic rise in recent decades.
Chinese runners at this year's London Marathon included 30 from the mainland led by Tian Tongsheng, 63, one of the founders of Runnar, a company that organizes trips and assists marathoners. Tian certainly breaks the traditional mold of aging in China, where the retirement age for men is 60. The first group, which may have advanced academic degrees, comprises some 65 to 70 percent of runners registered with his company. The second group, which makes up 30 to 35 percent, is also well-off, but many of them did not go to college, he says. Ninety percent of those who run outside China were born in the 1960s and '70s, putting them between the ages of 37 and 56, he adds. Oliver Wang, who is also CEO of Beijing-based Palace Travel and its US branch, which has runners as clients, too, describes the situation as part of a trend that started earlier in the West, in which the wealthy middle-aged started spending lots of money on fancy bicycles, for example, instead on sports cars. Du, of ZX-Tour Co, says one of the reasons for the explosion in travel is that people who have run the relatively new marathons in China are looking for a taste of better-run races abroad, as well as higher athletic levels. But in addition to that, what could be cooler than posting a selfie as you cross the finish line in Paris, Boston or Berlin, or wrap yourself in the national flag like an Olympian? Li Xibei, 30, an information technology worker from Central China who lives in New York City, raised funds to provide cleaner air to families in his homeland by running the North Pole Marathon this month.
Using Crowdrise, a crowdfunding website, he raised $6,030 - 18 percent more than his target sum - for the Blue Sky Lab campaign run by Friends of Nature, one of the oldest environmental NGOs in China. Li and a female compatriot, Fan Beibei, were among about 50 runners from 20 countries who braved temperatures as low as -40 C to complete the 42-km event, which was postponed several times due to cracks in the ice. Li is also one of a small but growing group of Chinese who have completed marathons on every continent, including Antarctica.
Despite the current enthusiasm, the Chinese have shown themselves to be somewhat fickle in terms of their motivation for traveling abroad. First, China's rising prosperity and its people's concern for health and fitness are unlikely to fade. Third, and perhaps most important, are the young runners who aspire to take on international marathons. The running bug bit Zhang Yiming, 20, a junior at Renmin University of China's School of International Relations in Beijing, in December 2014.
She runs 8 kilometers two to three times a week, which she says helps her deal with stress and keep calm. Zhang says she plans to run two international marathons a year, with New York, Boston and Munich at the top of her wish list. At a historical study meeting of the ancient land and sea Silk Roads, the president told Communist Party of China Central Committee members, "The Belt and Road Initiative, though initiated by China, is not only about China. Xi proposed the initiative in 2013, envisioning a trade and infrastructure network that would connect Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient land and sea routes. Analysts say the initiative covers at least 4.4 billion people in more than 60 countries, or 63 percent of the global population. Xi stressed the function of the market in promoting the initiative as well as the government's role in overall coordination. He said that Chinese companies must be law-abiding and responsible entities in foreign countries while pursuing economic returns.
Li Guoqiang, deputy director of the Institute of Chinese Borderland Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told China Daily that the purpose of the study was to learn from the experiences and mistakes of the ancient Silk Road and to open leaders' minds to innovative ways to implement the initiative.
The president stressed that China cannot seek short-term successes and quick profits when promoting this initiative, said Li, who delivered a speech at the group study.
What interested the president most was to take good consideration of relations between interests, enterprises and local and central governments, Li said.
Zha Xiaogang, a researcher at the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, said taking care of other countries' interests as well as China's is crucial now that an increasing number of foreign countries have decided to cooperate in the initiative because they have come to understand China's visions and policies. Zha said that Xi wants to balance the interests on three-levels: between China and the host country, between the different interest groups in the host country, and between China and other investors in the host country.
Only by taking good care of all these interests can we make the initiative profitable and sustainable, Zha said. Despite some setbacks in the past few years, Sino-Japanese relations are improving, though they are still fragile, the premier said. He also said Japan should appropriately manage sensitive elements that can substantially affect bilateral relations, and create a positive atmosphere to resume bilateral dialogues and the trilateral leaders' meeting of China, South Korea and Japan.
Kishida said Japan is willing to show mutual respect, strengthen political trust and manage disputes. Kishida is making his first official visit to China, from Friday to Sunday, since becoming foreign minister more than three years ago. Earlier on Saturday, Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talks with Kishida, before the visitor met with State Councilor Yang Jiechi and the premier in the afternoon. Gao Hong, director of the Institute of Japanese Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said Japan's actions are the key to improving bilateral relations, as the country has created issues that hamper China's fundamental interests and has broken its promises for cooperation instead of confrontation, especially in maritime rights.
Soon she was completing marathons, and before too long she was flying around the globe to participate in the some of the world's best-known sporting events. That's a 417 percent increase from the 29 Chinese entrants - 22 men and seven women - last year, organizers say. His company, which specializes in organizing training camps and tours, is among a number of enterprises serving the growing legion of Chinese runners. As for first impressions, "running is much better than (going abroad to) have a baby or purchase goods", says Wang Xiaogang, 40, a Beijing running coach and freelance journalist, who has frequently taken part in overseas marathons. Oliver Wang, who is also CEO of Beijing-based Palace Travel and its US branch, which has runners as clients, too, describes the situation as part of a trend that started earlier in the West, in which the wealthy middle-aged started spending lots of money on fancy bicycles, for example, instead of on sports cars.

Now, Ji Xiaoxiang and Yang Mohan, both 33 and graduates of Tongji University's Urban Planning School in Shanghai, have made that journey to the village.
The boutique hostel Da Le Zhi Ye, which is minimalist and comfortable, is located in Deqing county in Zhejiang province. After spending several years designing urban developments, they say they were left disenchanted, as many projects did not become a reality. They eventually ended up in Biwu, a village in Deqing county in the eastern province of Zhejiang. The men rented the old house and spent their savings transforming it into a boutique hostel, Da Le Zhi Ye, the name of which comes from an ancient book, The Classic of Mountains and Rivers. Ji had never lived in the countryside before but now prides himself on successfully integrating with the local community.
The hostel features huge windows, which let in copious amounts of natural light, and a small cafe that serves a decent Americano.
There is a serenity that permeates the place that can't be found in a metropolis, and when night falls only the sounds of a nearby stream can be heard. Yang and Ji are among a small group of urban elites who have done the opposite of young people from the villages, who still think the only measure of success is to own an apartment and have a decent job in cities like Shanghai and Beijing. Ask any of the 274 million migrant workers in China about his or her reason for seeking work in the big cities and the most likely reason will be that farming, with its harsh conditions and meager income, is simply not worth it. In recent years, however, some people - mostly young and well-educated - have been going against the grain, heading from major cities to relatively remote regions, such as Deqing, to pursue their dreams. Statistics from the Deqing government show the county has generated thousands of job opportunities in the transportation and retail sectors since it opened to tourism about eight years ago. Yu Wei, a Shanghai interior designer, and his wife decided to build their dream home in Deqing's Moganshan Mountains.
Wang Zehao quit his job as a software engineer in Ningbo on the east coast and returned to his hometown in Deqing about four years ago. Marathon running, which in China includes many health-conscious, well-educated participants, is an important source of sportswear sales.
Chinese sportswear brand Li-Ning - among the companies reinvigorated by China's passion for running and other sports - snapped three years of annual losses to swing back into profit in 2015, according to a recent Channel NewsAsia report. Nike's China earnings rose 43 percent in the quarter ending in February, with footwear growing fastest at 33 percent, the company reported. German sportswear maker Adidas Group was No 2 with a 16 percent share in 2015, up from 15 percent in 2014.
Chinese brand Anta China Co Ltd also recorded strong growth to 9.9 percent, up from 9 percent in 2014, making it the third-largest player in the nation's sportswear industry.
Performance footwear, perhaps the most important equipment in marathons, is predicted to continue as sales leader, Euromonitor says.
The study found that 70 percent of those surveyed said they are more likely to buy the products of companies that sponsor races.
When he arrived, on April 11, he says he discovered his fellow guests at the hotel were almost entirely Chinese.
The next day, he rose at 6 am and took a shuttle bus to the 60,000-seat Kim Il-sung Stadium to join more than 500 international runners at the starting line. The route through downtown Pyongyang passes some major landmarks, including Kim Il-sung University and the city's Arch of Triumph. He says there were no security checks at the starting line or portable toilets, and that the rules for runners' attire were unusual. In the end, Hu finished outside 3 hours 52 minutes, almost 16 minutes slower than his personal best but eight ahead of the event's closing mark, a relatively tough task for many amateur runners. Hu, who works for a media company in Beijing, says his lasting impression is of the local spectators.
When political scientist Fang Ning decided to compete in a marathon during a sabbatical six years ago, most Chinese still considered the sport a novel concept, with its challenges of endurance and mental stamina. But the director of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences' Institute of Political Science - the country's leading think tank - isn't taking part only to sharpen his perseverance and experience, but also for the joy of reaching milestones. He says he sees something more in the large numbers of Chinese participating both in the races staged by many cities in China and those who travel to Boston, London and other global cities to run. Fang was among a group of Chinese scholars in London to introduce English-language versions of their books about understanding China, covering topics such as political and economic systems, social welfare, energy and the environment. Fang says the people's increasing passion to challenge their limits is just part of the process, which he predicts will speed up when China reaches its goal of doubling its per capita income to about $12,000 by 2020.
Fang says the growth of what he calls "individual choices" to satisfy the demands of the people will serve to maintain social stability. When the 42-year-old set a goal of running marathons on all seven continents in two years, he started out with one of the most challenging around. The founder and chairman of Hudongbaike, one of China's largest internet companies, took on the Antarctic Ice Marathon last year.
Pan, one of a limited number of Chinese to run a marathon in Antarctica, says the race - and long-distance running in general - holds many analogies and lessons pertinent to life.
To become one of the 55 people from 22 countries who participated in the 11th Antarctic Ice Marathon in November, Pan had to make a 43-hour trip of nearly 25,000 kilometers from Beijing to Dallas, then to Santiago and Punta Arenas in Chile, and then to Union Glacier on the 80th parallel south, a common jumping-off point for polar trips. Pan says he recalls Ngan warning them that, with temperatures reaching as low as -30 C, they had to guard against heat loss. Still, everyone completed their race, which included 47 runners in the full 42.195 km marathon and eight in the half-marathon. Pan says it even helps him in his business, which was launched in 2005 and includes the world's largest Chinese encyclopedia. He says another benefit to running marathons is the people he meets, all of whom are driven. He says it's true that Chinese participation in international marathons is evidence of the country's economic progress, with the number of wealthy and middle-class Chinese rising quickly.
However, Pan says he sees running as a personal journey, pure and simple, that has helped him comprehend things he had not understood before.
With the running craze growing among health-conscious urban Chinese, fitness experts and trainers are warning amateurs to prepare before they strap on their running shoes to avoid health problems. Runners hit by sudden illness, and even death, during long-distance events continue to make the news periodically, raising concerns over participants skipping necessary training and health examinations. Despite growth of the sport, awareness of many Chinese amateurs lags about the imperative of using healthy running techniques while building up gradually to longer distances. Wang says any runner who plans to participate in a full marathon, which is just over 42 kilometers, needs to build up endurance and stamina on a weekly basis, following strict exercise and diet routines to improve distance and pace gradually.

A noticeable trend has emerged in recent years as more and more cities in the United States drop a€?Columbus Daya€? in favor of a€?Indigenous Peoples Day.a€? This name change is considered to be a great improvement by those who know that Columbus Day stands for a bloody expansion of empire and colonization. One way of characterizing the Columbian legacy is this: When Columbus named that first island a€?San Salvadora€? (Holy Savior), he began the process of using the human imagination to impose the dominating metaphors of Western Christendom on our nations, our ancestors, and our lands. Before we move further in the direction of a€?Indigenous Peoples Day,a€? however, perhaps it would be wise to remember Dakota poet and philosopher John Trudella€™s warning about what happens when, a€?They change the name and treat us the same.a€? The existing foundation of the system continues unabated because the name change is only a surface level revision.


Auckland Community Law Centre opened its doors as the Grey Lynn Neighbourhood Law Office in June 1977. The impetus to establish a law centre in Auckland came from the need to provide access to justice for Maori and Pacific Island communities, which research showed were missing out. Funding for the law centre came from both the New Zealand Law Society and the Auckland District Law Society. In 1987 the members of the Auckland District Law Society agreed at a general meeting to a levy being imposed on all its members.
While our office was physically located in Grey Lynn until 2014, we have long served a much wider area of the central Auckland community (including the Central Western suburbs, the Central City, the Eastern suburbs, Panmure, Glen Innes and the North Shore). In February 2015, we moved to our current premises in level 1 of the Tasman Building at 16-22 Anzac Ave, Auckland Central.
Our physical move naturally prompted a change in name.  There is much history behind the name of Grey Lynn Neighbourhood Law Office and for this reason, we took care  to ensure that an appropriate new name was given to the law centre. These terms and conditions apply to your use of the website, its content, its resources, and its materials.
