RIO DE JANEIRO， Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Chinese teenager Li Junsheng beat local favorite Daniel Dias to claim gold in the 100m breaststroke SB4 at the Rio Paralympics on Sunday.
The 16-year-old touched the wall in 1 minute， 35.96 seconds， just 17 hundredths of a second ahead of the Brazilian. Colombia's Moises Fuentes Garcia clinched bronze in 1:37.40.
Dias said he was surprised by Li's performance but said his rival was a deserving winner.
"I confess ... The Chinese surprised me， and all of us. China are also showing the world that they are very strong and we have to lift our game."
Li was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when he was one and took up swimming in 2012.
Support for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe edged above 60% for the first time in almost two years [url=http://www.vapormaxscontate.it/uomo-nike-vapormax-flyknit-kpu-tutte-marina-blu-scontate.html]Uomo Nike Vapormax Flyknit KPU Tutte Marina Blu Scontate[/url] , and nearly the same percentage want him to stay in the top job until Tokyo hosts the Summer Games in 2020, a media survey showed on Monday.
Japan PM Shinzo Abe
Voters, however, were split over the prime minister’s Abenomics growth recipe of hyper-easy monetary policy, fiscal spending and promised reforms [url=http://www.vapormaxscontate.it/donne-uomo-nikelab-vapormax-flyknit-betrue-2017-blu-scontate.html]Donne Uomo NikeLab VaporMax Flyknit Betrue 2017 Blu Scontate[/url] , with 47% giving a thumbs down to the Bank of Japan’s negative interest rate stance, the poll showed.
Support for Abe’s cabinet hit 62% in the Aug 26 to 28 survey by the Nikkei business daily, up four points from earlier this month. The paper suggested the rise could be due to Olympics fever, after a closing ceremony in Rio de Janeiro where Abe appeared dressed as popular video game character Mario.
“I think the bump up was due to the feel-good factor of Japan doing well in the Olympics and ‘Super Mario’ is irrelevant,” said Jeffrey Kingston [url=http://www.vapormaxscontate.it/uomo-nike-vapormax-flyknit-2018-blu-scontate.html]Uomo Nike Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Blu Scontate[/url] , director of Asian studies at Temple University’s Japan campus.
Japan won 41 medals, including 12 gold.
Speculation has simmered that Abe, already Japan’s longest serving prime minister in a decade, wants to stay in his post long enough to host the 2020 Olympics.
Doing so would require a change in his Liberal Democratic Party’s rules that limit the party presidency to two three-year terms. Abe’s second term will end in September 2018.
Some LDP heavyweights have voiced support for the rule change, but potential rivals are less enthused.
A previous Nikkei survey showed 45% of voters were opposed to extending the LDP leader term limit against 41% in favor.
BERLIN [url=http://www.vapormaxscontate.it/uomo-nike-vapormax-flyknit-kpu-verde-nere-scontate.html]Uomo Nike Vapormax Flyknit KPU Verde Nere Scontate[/url] , March 24 (Xinhua) -- Parents of 16 teenager students in Joseph-Koenig High School in Haltern am See, Germany should have welcomed their beloved children back home from their exchange study in Spain on Tuesday.
What they received, however, was a deep grief to hear that the flight the students took crashed in southern French Alps with 150 people on board.
"This is the darkest day in the history of our city," said Bodo Klimpel [url=http://www.vapormaxscontate.it/uomo-nike-vapormax-flyknit-kpu-nere-bianche-scontate.html]Uomo Nike Vapormax Flyknit KPU Nere Bianche Scontate[/url] , the mayor of Haltern am See, a town some 80 kilometers to the north of Duesseldorf where the Germanwings flight 4U9525 was scheduled to arrive from Barcelona in Spain.
The school was closed after the tragic news arrived, but many students came back with flowers and candles to mourn for their peers.
Flowers were also left in Duesseldorf airport, so do notes with encouraging information.
"Dear parents, brothers [url=http://www.vapormaxscontate.it/uomo-nike-vapormax-kpu-tpu-tutte-nere-scontate.html]Uomo Nike Vapormax KPU TPU Tutte Nere Scontate[/url] , friends and lovers: Be strong, Duesseldorf, the world and I grieve together with you. You are not alone," read one note.
"For families of the victims, today is a dark day. We cannot image their grief [url=http://www.vapormaxscontate.it/uomo-nike-vapormax-2018-nere-scontate.html]Uomo Nike Vapormax 2018 Nere Scontate[/url] ," said the airport spokesman Thomas Koetter, "What we can do is to provide them a quiet private space and professional assistance."
Family members of the passengers were protected from media and stayed in a VIP lounge in the airport where they could receive professional psychological assistance.
Hotlines were also set up in Germanwings and the airport for care and consulting. Website of the airline was in black and white.
The state of North Rhine-Westphalia, where Duesseldorf is the capital city, has decided to flow flags in government departments at half-mast on Wednesday and Thursday.
"We expressed our deep concern over this terrible misfortune," said the state's Interior Minister Ralf Jaeger [url=http://www.vapormaxscontate.it/uomo-nike-vapormax-flyknit-2018-nere-scontate.html]Uomo Nike Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Nere Scontate[/url] , "Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims."
Earlier on Tuesday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel had expressed her deep shock and sorrow over the tragedy, as well as sympathy to families of the victims.
She planned to travel to the crash site in southern France on Wednesday, and said her country would work together with France and Spain to find out the causes of the crash.
German President Joachim Gauck, who was visiting South America [url=http://www.vapormaxscontate.it/uomo-nike-vapormax-nere-anthracite-scontate.html]Uomo Nike VaporMax Nere Anthracite Scontate[/url] , also decided to cut his visit and come back home early.
"My thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims," he said, "May they find in this difficult time strength and comfort."
CANBERRA， March 24 (Xinhua) -- Australia experienced its fastest growth in migration in four years in 2016， something which could put further strain on infrastructure and services in the nation's major cities， according to a leading PricewaterhouseCoopers economist.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)， Australia's population grew by almost 350，000 people in 2016. Notably， around 200，000 of those were migrants， meaning Australia experienced an unusually high an overall growth rate of 1.5 percent - faster than all other OECD nations except New Zealand.
Rob Tyson from PricewaterhouseCoopers told News Corp on Friday that many of those migrants were moving to Australia's big cities such as Sydney and Melbourne， and a higher growth rate could mean vital infrastructure could lag behind.
"Such growth means we need five new hospitals， 31 new schools and 35 new childcare centers every three months，" Tyson said.
"Big cities are already experiencing the challenges of accommodating a rapidly growing population su.
