Car-free day pushes "green" tr




108 cities in China took part in World Car Free Day on Saturday to promote environmentally-friendly transport and ease increasingly grid-locked city streets. It's a highlight of a nationwide urban public transport week. People were urged to take public transport, ride bikes or walk.

Traffic on the move.

This was the scene on some downtown streets in Beijing where private cars were banned on car free day.

To help out, more than 200 new buses took to the streets. And the Beijing Subway laid on 10 more trains for rush hour.

A Beijing resident said "Today is car free day, and I do find the traffic much better and the bus can go much faster."

Another resident said "I spent only half an hour to go to work. It took me twice as long before. Plus I can find seat on the bus today."

But in some areas not signed up for traffic control, endless lines of cars can still be seen.

Some people say they just can't do without their cars.

Another Beijing resident said "Some people are willing to give up driving, but on certain days when I have to take my child to school or weekend classes,the public transport is so bad that I can't do it without a car."

But the concept of "green" traffic is catching on. People say they believe it's the first and honest step in facing the serious traffic and environmental problems.

A driver said "The car free day has very important symbolic meaning. It does not mean that we must give up cars. It is to promote a concept, to encourage more people to contribute to the protection of the environment."

The Ministry of Construction calculates "Car Free Day" will cut 3000 tons of emissions and save 33 million liters of gasoline. And it's planning more frequent activities to raise public awareness of energy conservation and environmental protection.

Beijing airport tests new runways



Beijing International Airport has started test flights on three new runways. The runways are expected to greatly enhance the airport's passenger capacity as visitor numbers continue to grow rapidly.

Three large Air China planes took to the skies at the same time from the three new runways.

An Air China Boeing 747, a Boeing 777, and an Airbus 340 each took two test flights in China's first simultaneous test on three runways. Currently, only US airports run on a multi-runway operation model.

Gao Dianbang, chief pilot of Air China,said, "The test flights were very successful. The three planes can simultaneously take off and land without affecting each other. This will greatly enhance flight capacity."

The test flights also show that the runway surfaces and navigational equipment are all up to standard. The three new runways will be put into operation late next month.

China pushes low-rent housing



Affordable housing is one of the main goals of the government's policy of building a housing security system. In the last five years, 270,000 low-income families have been given access to low-rent housing.

It appears that low-income families just can't affor the high rent in the cities they live. And many live with less than 10 square meters per person, far below the 27 square meters per capita average set in 2004. Relief could be on its way, thanks to the government's low-rent housing project.

In Shuangliu county, Sichuan province, over 280 low-income families have received keys to their low-rent homes. Zhang Shiyuan is one of them. His wife has been seriously ill for years and his 18 year old daughter is still at school.

With his monthly income of 500 to 600 yuan, the family lived in a house that was less than 30 square meters. Under recent changes, they were able to move in a bigger house that's 57 square meters.

Zhang Shiyuan said, "The rent is around 60 yuan. I can afford it, yes, absolutely. I never thought I could live in such a house. Now I have the chance. I feel satisfied with the change."

Since 1998, the government has highlighted the need for more affordable housing and invested more than 15 billion yuan in the housing security system.

Vice Minister of Construction Qi Ji said, "The strength of the housing sector is directly related to raising the standard of living and improving the quality of life. Therefore, it is very important to solve the housing difficulties of low-income families. The goal is for the housing security system to cover low-income families by 2010."

The central government has urged provincial authorities to provide preferential capital, tax and land policies to support the development of low-rent housing. They are also asking the provinces to take measures to curb runaway housing prices.

The government's low-rent housing system aims to provide affordable housing for the urban poor. But due to the large numbers who need help, it will take time for the government to meet its goal of providing housing for all low-income families.

low-rent housing:廉租房

China´s changing city attracts for



China's ancient history is a strong selling point for tourists from around the world. And for many visitors, the upcoming Olympic Games are adding a new dimension to China's appeal, as the country modernizes.

Du Dawei is what American David Tool calls himself. The 65 year-old earns his living as a university English teacher. His students' enthusiasm for learning English has inspired him to teach English in his spare time to elderly and others involved with the Olympics for free.

In recent years there has been a rapid increase in the number of Chinese who can speak English, and Tool says dramatic changes are also happening in Beijing as the Olympics get closer.

Tool said, "One of my friends visits me every year. He said if he encounters a problem in the street, more Chinese now voluntarily offer to help him. And I said that's great!"



Tool enjoys his life here, and likes to get close to local people. Recently, he has noticed some surprising changes. One thing he noticed is "queuing day". Tool says there is better order in public places now. And he says there are more facilities for disabled people, such as raised pathways for the blind in subway stations and specially reserved seats.

Tool said, "In Beihai park, there used to be no special path for wheelchairs. But now it's different, wheelchairs can go there. I am so happy about that."

David said the upcoming Olympics and Paralympics have injected new energy and vitality into the ancient city.

"After the Olympics, we should also carry on what we've achieved. So the Olympics provide a golden opportunity for all the positive changes here. Beijing has improved a lot in the past six years I've been living here."said Tool.

Tool says Beijing's ancient history is what fascinates foreigners like him. And he believes the city will be even more beautiful and attractive after the Olympics.

President Hu's Japan visit to be one in




Chinese President Hu Jintao says his upcoming state visit to Japan will have the atmosphere of a "warm spring". Hu Jintao made the remarks during an interview with journalists from 16 Japanese media organizations stationed in the Chinese capital. He also spoke about the Tibet issue and the Olympics.



The ice has already been broken. It's time to warm things up.

The Chinese President has high expectations of the upcoming trip to Japan, which will be the first state visit by a Chinese head of state in a decade.

During the interview with Japanese media, Hu Jintao extended his best wishes to the Japanese people, and hoped to "meet old friends, make new friends".



His visit is the latest effort by the two countries to enhance ties.

Hu Jintao said "China and Japan are close neighbors. The two countries have a 2000 year long history of exchanges. Friendship between the two countries has gained wide support from people on both sides. This is a solid foundation for further development of bilateral ties."

Hu Jintao said the promotion of bilateral ties not only depends on politics, but also exchanges between the Chinese and the Japanese people, particularly the young.

Hu Jintao said "The most efficient way to improve bilateral ties is to keep enhancing exchanges between young people, so that they can have better understanding of each other and deepen their friendships."

On the Tibet issue, Hu Jintao confirmed that central government officials is scheduled to meet with private representatives of the Dalai Lama on Sunday.

Hu Jintao said he hopes contacts between the central government and Dalai Lama will yield positive results.

He added that judgments should be based on a person's deeds, not just on his words.

Hu Jintao also told the Japanese media he is confident that China will provide the world with a successful Olympics, and it will welcome people from all around the world during the Games.

Chinese Gourds




Making a living doing exactly what you enjoy doing is a blessing. There’s one lucky man called Bai Zehua who owns a shop selling handicraft made from gourds.

Working with gourds has always been my hobby. I enjoy painting on them, carving designs on them and embossing designs on these gourds.

For embossing, the gourds should be chosen carefully. Gourds with a soft skin are easy to emboss, but the skin bounces back as soon as you apply pressure to them. Patterns embossed on gourds with hard skins might look shallow, but the final effect is much better.

The art of embossing gourds originated in the late Qing Dynasty. At that time, artisans used bone tools, but nowadays we use tools made from agate or steel. Now, I will show you the whole process of making embossed gourds. First, you should design a pattern on the gourd and then carve the outline with a sharp knife. After that, choose a suitable type of knife to emboss the pattern on the gourd.

Gourds are very popular in China. People use them in many ways, as these gourds have many meanings.

Gourds are considered very auspicious. The pronunciation of gourds in Chinese is “Hulu” which sounds similar to the Chinese word happiness and wealth. And gourds have a lot of seeds inside, symbolizing a big family with many children. Nowadays, people still like to keep gourds to avoid evil spirits.

To make a unique gourd, artful decoration isn’t enough. The curvaceous shapes of gourds can be molded artificially as it grows.

The shape of gourd handicraft is very beautiful. This one in my hand is a specially-shaped gourd manipulated by using several kinds of techniques. What you see is not its natural shape. In order to make it looks like a “Ruyi”, we tied ropes on it and put it in a mold before it became ripe.

Because gourds have a high degree of elasticity, different designs can produce different effects. Gourd handicrafts can be made using different kinds of techniques, such as tying it with rope, burning designs on it, carving it with a knife and scratching it with a needle.

I love gourds and I’m so happy to work with them. It is a way to carry on historical and cultural traditions.
