BRUSSELS nike air max 2017 scontate , Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- Two Chinese experts have been called in to an animal park in Belgium in a "delicate mission" to help two pandas reproduce, the park said in a statement on Tuesday.

Hao Hao and Xing Hui were gifted by China to the Pairi Daiza park in Brugelette, near the southern Belgian city of Mons, in 2014. Zookeepers had noted a change in the couple's behaviour in recent days, potentially signalling the start of a reproductive period.

Two experts from the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Pandas in Sichuan nike air max classic bw uomo scontate , Professor Li Descheng and assistant Li Rengui, arrived at Pairi Daiza on Tuesday morning, the park said.

Professor Descheng has 22 years of experience in breeding giant pandas, and is helping a team of local scientists to oversee the reproduction attempts.

Pairi Daiza has also been working with specialists at the University of Ghent to study their behavior, hormones and overall health to help them procreate. Pandas have infamously solitary lifestyles - female pandas only tolerate a male's presence around them two to three days a year during mating season.

The reproduction period in a female panda is characterized by a peak of oestrogen nike air max classic bw premium scontate , followed by a fall. The park said the latest results of the urine samples of Hao Hao, the female, showed no significant drop in oestrogen levels.

The park added that it was "likely that nothing will happen today" and said it would provide timely updates on whether mating or artificial insemination has been achieved.

Hao Hao and Xing Hui were the first giant pandas China has sent overseas for a lease term of 15 years instead of the usual 10.

Belgium became only the 13th country and Pairi Daiza the 18th zoo in the world to house giant pandas, considered one of the world's most endangered species. About 1,600 live in the wild nike air max classic bw donna scontate , mostly in the mountains of China's southwestern Sichuan province, while over 300 live in captivity.


LONDON, May 12 (Xinhua) -- English premiership club Everton sacked manager Roberto Martinez Thursday after his side finished 12th in the League.

It came after a dismal few days for the Blues, bringing an end to Martinez's three year rule at Goodison Park in Liverpool.

Last weekend they travelled to Leicester, and were hammered 3-1, with their humiliation being worsened by watching the celebrations as Leicester collected their trophy for their "miracle" win of the championship.

That loss was compounded last night when Everton travelled to North East England to be beaten 3-0 by Sunderland.

Everton have won only five league games at home this season, finishing with their lowest number of points since 1981.

In a statement issued just before 5pm Thursday Everton said: "Everton Football Club regrets to announce that Roberto Martinez has left his position as First Team Manager with immediate effect.

"The Chairman and the Board of Directors would like to place on record their thanks for the dedication and commitment Roberto has shown during his three seasons with the Club."

Later in another announcement Everton announced that its end-of-season award's night, due to taking place this evening, has been cancelled.

Martinez joined Everton after a stunning career as the manager of Wigan, taking them to FA club glory, beating Manchester City 1-0 at Wembley in 2013.

SYDNEY, June 7 (Xinhua) -- The city of Sydney in Australia is home to the largest Chinese New Year Festival outside of Asia, and the event is pivotal to the development of stronger cultural ties between China and Australia.

From its humble beginnings 21 years ago, the festival has culminated in a city-wide event celebrated by millions of Sydney-siders nike air max classic bw scontate , and according to Andrea Myles, CEO of the China Australia Millennial Project, the Spring Festival celebrations in Sydney have "evolved" drastically.

"Sydney has a really vibrant Chinese community, and always has, so now we are seeing that the Chinese New Year Festival in Sydney is actually the largest outside of Asia nike air max 2017 verde scontate ," Myles told Xinhua.

As a member of the advisory panel for the festival, Myles knows first hand the passion that Australians have for festivals. She said that this event stands out due to the love that Australians have for the Chinese community.

"The Chinese community is as much a part of Australia's history as anybody is a part of Australia's history," Myles said. "So we really own that, we really feel a bond there."

Although the floats and lights, might take center stage during the festivities nike air max 2017 verde , Myles believed that more importantly, the event has the special ability to bring families together during the course of the Lunar New Year celebrations.

"We know that it is a really important time for Chinese people here in Australia," Myles said.

"So we love to celebrate that and really show that, yes, you are absolutely welcome here and we want to be a part of it as much as we can."

The ability of this event nike air max 2017 uomo scontate , and others like it, in breaking down all cross-cultural barriers is one of the most crucial parts of the festivals operation, and Myles said that these festivals are "fundamental" in building strong and lasting ties between China and Australia.

"These events allow everybody, from the youngest child to the oldest grandmother to engage, and to be a part of the things which interest them nike air max 2017 rosse scontate ," she said.

"So whether you are interested in food, whether you're interested in art, or you're interested in getting to know your neighbors better if they are Chinese, or if they are Australian. It's a really great opportunity to just come together."

This year saw the Chinese New Year celebrations draw in over a million visitors throughout the course of the two-week event at locations throughout the Sydney CBD, and comprised of over 80 events scattered around the city to the delight of the revellers.<.
