The Great Wall

The Great Wall of China, one of the most awe-inspiring man-made projects in the world, lies across the northern part of China like a great sleeping dragon, winding its way through China's vast northern territory. With a history of over 2,500 years, the Great Wall attracts visitors from all over the world. In 1987, the Great Wall was listed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The Great Wall of China was selected as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World in a global poll announced on July 7, 2007. It is often said "If you haven't climbed the Great Wall, you haven't seen China." Most people in the world have seen photos of The Great Wall, but photos are but poor imitations of the beauty and grandeur that is China's Great Wall. No China tour is complete without seeing the Great Wall. Visiting it is the experience of lifetime.

The construction of the Great wall began during 770-476 BC. During that period Ducal states built walls to defend their territories. In 221 BC, Qin Shi Huang conquered the six kingdoms and unified China to become its first emperor. To consolidate the country and ward off invasion by the ethnic minority tribes in the north, he had the separate walls joined together and extended to form a united defensive system. Construction continued up to the Ming dynasty (1368–1644), when the Great Wall became the world's largest military structure. The current measurement of The Great Wall, which stretches from Shanhaiguan Pass in the east to Jiayuguan Pass in the west, is 7300 kilometers (4300 miles). Its thickness ranges from about 4.5 to 9 meters (15 to 30 feet), and at its highest point is 7.5 meters (25 feet) tall. Most of the walls we see today were built during the Ming Dynasty. The watchtowers are built at intervals of 1,500 feet except where the terrain is more complicated, and then they are even closer. In ancient time, everyday thousands of soldiers were stationed there to make sure the whole nation was safe. At night, they slept inside the towers.

Its historic and strategic importance is matched only by its architectural significance. It is constructed of locally available materials – stone, rammed earth, large blocks of granite and bricks. The Great Wall is comprised of not only the walls, but also gates, beacon towers, watchtowers, castles and fortresses. Along the 7300 kilometers (4300 miles) long wall, there are countless beacon towers that were used as signal tower to deliver messages from one place to another. When the enemy invaded in the daytime, heavy smoke was used as a signal; while at night, a large fire would be lit, because fire was easy to see at great distances. The scale of the smoke and fire signals could reveal the number of invading enemies. The beacon towers were set at regular intervals along the Great Wall, and each tower upon seeing a signal from the previous one would light their signal to signal the next tower. A signal could be sent from one end of the Great Wall to the other, a distance of 7300 kilometers (4300 miles) in just over one hour.

The Great Wall was constructed using the Chinese people's sweat, blood, and muscle. Ancient records show that at least one million slaves and prisoners of war were conscripted to build the great wall which followed the contour of the land, taking advantage of the natural landscape. As many died from exhaustion and starvation while working on this colossal task, the Wall was also known as "the longest cemetery in the world." The bricks, rocks and lime used to build the wall had to be carried up the mountains on bare backs. Those who succeeded in climbing the wall today are often regarded as "real heroes", but as visitors realize the difficulty in climbing the wall, they should try to imagine how difficult it must have been to build the Great Wall without any modern machinery.

The legend of Meng Jiangnu bringing down a section of the Great Wall with her tears
Many legends have survived about the construction of the Great Wall. Among them, the most popular is the story about Lady Meng Jiangnu.
On the night of their wedding, Meng Jiangnu's husband was conscribed to work on the Great Wall by the Qin soldiers. Before he went away, Lady Meng broke her white jade hairpin in two and gave her husband one half as a token of love. One day, lady Meng dreamed that her husband was constantly yelling "Cold, cold". She recalled that her husband was wearing very thin clothes. She made some padded clothes for her husband and left home to look for her husband. She didn't realize that her husband had already died of exhaustion. Upon hearing this, she burst into tears. The Great Wall was moved and more than 20 Kilometers collapsed, revealing the body of her husband and many others. On seeing this, she committed suicide by jumping into the sea. A temple can be found at Shanhai Pass near the sea in memory of this loyal lady.

Sections of the Great Wall

The Great Wall Near Beijing
Factors, such as season, accessibility, safety, health condition, should be taken into account when visiting the Great Wall. The view as you climb to the top is stunning. Badaling and Juyong Pass is the most visited and most easily accessible part of the Wall. The section between Jinshanling and Simatai requires more physical stamina to climb. The scenery of Mutianyu Great Wall is extremely beautiful in autumn when the trees covering the mountainsides have turned golden.

Badaling Great Wall
The best-preserved and most imposing section of the Great Wall is at Badaling, which is located 72 kilometers (45 miles) away at the northwest of Beijing. In Chinese, 'Bada' means 'giving access to every direction'. The name itself suggests its strategic importance. This section is made of large blue bricks. The wall has an average height of 7 meters (24 feet) and a width of 6 meters (19 feet) at the bottom, and 5 meters (16 feet) at the top. It is wide enough to allow ten soldiers to march side by side along the wall. The highest point here is more than 731 meters (2,400 feet) above sea level.

Mutianyu Great Wall
Mutianyu Great Wall is located 70kilometers (43 miles) from the center of Beijing. It is much steeper than Badaling Great Wall, and a more challenging climb. This section, older than Badaling, is considered by Chinese and foreign tourists as the best part of the Great Wall. There are fewer people here because the location is less accessible than Badaling. Surrounded by woodland and streams, this section takes on a different look in each season. Blossoming flowers in spring, flowing streams in summer, red leaves in autumn and white snow in winter make this one of the Great Walls most photographic spots.

Simatai Great Wall
The Simatai Great Wall is located 120 kilometers (74 miles) from Beijing. It is often described with the following three words: perilous, diverse, and peculiar. This section has not been restored as much as Badaling and much of the section is in a state of ruin with exposed bricks and the ruins of watch towers. A famous specialist of Great Wall history has stated: "The Great Wall is the best of the Chinese buildings, and Simatai Section is the best of the Great Wall." This section has been named as one of the most "excellent cultural relics of the world" by UNESCO.

Jinshanling Great Wall
The Jinshanling Great Wall is located 140 kilometers (87 miles) northeast of Beijing. It features complicated and well preserved fortification systems. The walls are more solid, the watchtowers are taller and it retains its original Ming Dynasty appearance. Here you can see the Wall relatively undisturbed and in its original condition. The wall follows the contours of the mountains, and stretches off into the distance. The wall has not been restored, so it has a special beauty. It is the section that foreign visitors like the most.

Juyong Pass
Juyong Pass, located in a valley more than 50 kilometers (31 miles) from Beijing, is one of the three greatest passes of Great Wall. (The other two passes are Jiayu Pass and Shanhai Pass) The wall we can see today was built in the early Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The valley where Juyong Pass lies is steep and precipitous, giving Juyong Pass the reputation of being the most steep and dangerous pass. Juyong Pass and Badaling in the south are vital gateways in the northwest region of Beijing.

Jiayu Pass
Jiayu Pass, located in northwestern part of Gansu Province, was a pass of strategic importance on the Ancient Silk Road. This section, first built in 1539, is the representative of the Great Wall in western China, and is also the western starting point of the Ming Dynasty built section. It has been called: "the most important pass in the world" and "the most strategically significant pass in Hexi".

The Shanhaiguan Great Wall, locates at Qinhuangdao which is in Hebei Province, is the east starting point of the Great Wall. It was first built in 1381 in Ming dynasty. It has the reputation of "the first pass in the world". The walls are 14 meters tall and 7 meters thick. It has very complete defense system. Standing on the Great Wall can command a panoramic view of the grand ocean and the winding Great Wall. This section is known as the Old Dragon's Head because it is the easternmost end of the Great Wall.

How To Dance The Tango In Eight Moves

If there's one dance that people consider romantic and sexy, that would be the tango. It comes as no surprise that many people show a lot of interest in learning the famous moves they've seen in movies. Not to mention the sultry dresses women wear! As they swing and move their legs to the beat of the earthy and dramatic music, the swish of the skirt is a mesmerizing site indeed. Unlike the other ballroom dances, the movements involved in tango can either be slow and smooth, or sharp and strong. It is distinct in its own right and is easy on the eyes. A quick leg flip and a head snap usually signals the beginning of the dance.

Tango is a dance made for lovers. While it has the same circular flow as most other styles have, there is a sense of need emanating for both the man and woman. It seems as if they crave for the touch of the other person while their feelings of passion radiate all throughout the dance. And although it looks very complicated, the basic choreography involves alternating movement of the feet. The man starts and the woman mirrors what he does. Some people prefer to learn the tango with the help of the instructor. While studios can be found practically anywhere, you can equip yourself ahead of time by learning the most basic steps:

1. Stand up beside your partner and hold him close.

2. As he moves his right foot back, you step forward using left foot. The foot moves to where the body leans. Keep your heel off the ground while your leg trails smoothly. Avoid bouncing at all costs. Allow your heel to touch the floor only when you take a step back.

3. As he brings his left foot to the side, do the same with your right. This lateral movement begins with the leading foot extending to either direction that is quickly followed by shift in weight. Your feet come together soon after.

4. Switch sides and mirror his movement.

5. As he pivots his right foot to the left, do the same with your left. The leading leg should pull your body weight.

6. Switch sides when he does.

7. Add toe-taps and a variety of other movements only when you've grown comfortable and familiar with the dance.

8. Think like a cat and try to move like one all throughout. And remember, some people believe that it is actually the women who do the first move. However it will be for you, you shouldn't act like a ragged doll being dragged around.

Tango is very much like walking with your partner. The major distinction here is that you face and hold each other close as you traipse your way through the floor. For those who feel the need to challenge themselves, the dance does get complicated. As for those who live in a world of self-reliance, there are those who believe that you can add your own personal movements to the dance. Just know that as an active participant, you must exude passion. After all, what good is the tango without the emotion?

Even The Littlest Things You Do Can Become A Major Turning Point For Someone

Relationship is one of the most effective tools for spiritual evolution because we're always in relationships. Think of the web of relationships you have at any time—friends, parents, children, colleagues, teachers, lovers, even enemies. All are, at their heart, spiritual experiences.

Where would you be without all those lessons learned through relationships? Could you have grown into the person you are today? Could you have known the things you know today?

If you think back to all the little things we do for each other, and pay attention to some of the events that have unfolded as a result of them, you'll learn to recognize the impact we have on one another, everyday.

I want to take this time to remind you that you all matter to many, in more ways than you know. I see this everyday and everywhere, and am grateful for it. Let me give you an example.

In the late 80's soon after my move from Malaysia to Canada, I found myself being antagonized by a group of students I barely knew at my high school. Maybe I didn't quite understand their culture; perhaps my English wasn't perfect; or maybe my clothes didn't suit their taste. Who knows? But they seemed to enjoy tormenting me. They often threatened me, called me names and threw things at me and laughed.

I dreaded recess because I knew I would bump into them. I was afraid of them. I was afraid of getting in trouble and I was afraid I would disappoint my family if I retaliated or hurt anyone. Most of all, I was angry with myself for feeling so weak.

Feeling scared, sad and angry all at the same time, I kept my composure when I asked my art teacher, Ms. Kroeker, if I could spend my lunchtime in the art studio to practice my artwork. I even convinced her to lock the door so I could "keep a better eye on all the art supplies." She never questioned me. She was always very good to me.

To this day, Ms. Kroeker doesn't even know the truth about what she's done for me just by doing me that "little" favor. You see, while I was locked in the art studio each day during lunchtime, I came to realize that I was a good artist. I soon understood why Ms. Kroeker always praised my work. She believed in me long before I even believed in myself.

Learning to appreciate my own creativity was just my uncovering a piece of the puzzle. There was more. Being locked in at lunchtime gave me a safe place to be, to think, and to do some soul searching.

And with this opportunity to reflect, something inside me began to change. I was sick of feeling scared; sick of being locked in; sick of allowing others to have so much control over the way I felt. I knew that sooner or later I would have to face up to my fears and stand up for myself.

I had to unplug from a negative belief pattern about myself that had no truth but nonetheless had "power" over me. I knew I had to stop judging myself and give myself permission to do what's right for me.

I was ready. I gave myself permission to be free – to have lunch like everyone else. It wasn't long before my tormentors spotted me in the cafeteria. I felt something bad was going to happen but I kept my cool and went about my business until one of them decided to creep up from behind to attack me. That was when I lost it. I detonated.

In that little moment in time, every social grace I've ever adopted went out the window. I had to do what came naturally—defend myself. Though I held a black belt in Karate at the time, I must admit fighting for real was very different from fighting in a ring. In the ring, we had to follow the rules. In this case, there were no rules. Anything goes.

I was striking moves I didn't even know I was capable of just to fight not one, but three people off me. After a taste of my "temporary insanity," all three of them scattered off like mice running away from a cat. I was in shock. Did I hurt someone? Was I hurt? Was I the cat? (Like I said, I was in a little bit of a shock.)

To make a long story short, from that day onward, things were never the same. No one tried to bother me anymore.

I learned something else along the way as a result of all this. I used to think that doing my best means I have to be in the best mood or else I'm just not doing my best. Or my best has to be this awe-encompassing deal, or else it's not good enough. I'm glad to say I was wrong.

The truth is that your best is going to change from moment to moment, and that's okay. It will be different when you are healthy as oppose to sick, happy as oppose to sad. Under any circumstance, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

Doing your best means doing the most natural thing for you in each moment – making decisions to move away from what you don't want and more towards the things you do want. And if this means you have to take a few steps back in order to move forward, that's okay, too.

Doing your best also means making each moment for yourself a little better than the last. This does not necessarily mean that the next step you take will put you in an ideal place right away. It may not even make you happy in that moment. But nonetheless it is a necessary step in order to move towards your ideal outcome.

And if those steps you take should somehow lead you to fall hard along the way, that's okay, too. Just know that sometimes we have to fall in order to rise again—stronger than before.

An Introduction To Pilates

Over the last decade Pilates has become increasingly popular among dancers, athletes, models and celebs. Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Liz Hurley, even John Cleese. These are just a few of the big names who swear by Pilates and have helped to fuel the ever growing popularity of this “wonder workout”. But what is Pilates, what are the benefits, and how do you choose a Pilates instructor?

What exactly is Pilates?

Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates during the First World War to help rehabilitate returning war veterans. He recommended a few, precise movements emphasizing control and form that help to strengthen, stretch, and stabilize key muscle groups. These movements focus particularly on what he called the “powerhouse” – the abdomen, lower back, hips and bum. Fitness professionals call this part of the body “the core”, and as any Pilates instructor or personal trainer will tell you, it is the starting point of all strength, balance and posture.

Unlike gym workouts
that focus on repetition, Pilates exercises focus on fluidity of motion as you perform each pose with slow, graceful movements, starting from the mid-section and moving outward. Breathing, concentration, muscle control and precision of movement are central principles of the Pilates method, making it slower and less aerobic than other fitness classes. For this reason Pilates is suitable for people of all ages and abilities, and is recommended for those suffering from osteoporosis, as well as those who are overweight.

What are the benefits of Pilates?

Muscle Toning- the flowing and controlled movements of Pilates help to firm up and lengthen the muscles, resulting in a sleeker shape and more toned look to the body.

Body Control - the emphasis on precision of movement helps to improve your mind-muscle connection, which means better control over your body in day to day life.

Core Stability- by targeting the mid-section Pilates helps to strengthen the core muscles, which not only improves balance, but also flattens and tones your waistline.

Injury Rehabilitation- the low impact nature of Pilates helps to develop strength and flexibility without straining the muscles, making it ideal for rehabilitation.

Improved Posture- by correcting muscle imbalances and strengthening the back and spine, Pilates improves posture and lessens the risk of back injury and neck pain.

Increase Wellbeing - In a similar way to yoga, Pilates is a balanced, holistic approach that relieves stress and anxiety by working on the mind as well as the body.

Getting started…

Before starting a Pilates class it's a good idea to book a home or studio session with a private Pilates instructor. Ideally look for a REPS Level 3 Pilates Instructor, or one who is registered with The Body Control Pilates Association. A one-to-one Pilates session will give you an idea of what a Pilates class feels like, but with a lot more personal focus. Your Pilates instructor will be able to show you where your body's strengths and weaknesses lie, and give you some exercises you can try at home. If you enjoy and feel the benefits of the exercises then you might want to join a local Pilates class, or combine a class with one-to-one sessions.

How to Have Soft Healthy Skin Naturally

Are you looking for an anti aging skin care formula that provides you with everything you need for achieving smooth, soft healthy skin naturally? Although all natural compounds are the answer to achieving the firm, wrinkle free skin you desire, it is extremely difficult to find one that features the right combination of ingredients to help you achieve your goal. The truth is that it is difficult to find an all natural anti aging formula period.

Despite the fact that it is common knowledge that all natural compounds are the most effective for reversing skin aging, very few manufacturers use these compounds in their products. This is primarily due to the cost of using such ingredients in their products, as natural compounds require special processing in order to retain all their healing properties. Cost is the issue that keeps you from having the healthy, effective ingredients you need.

In order to achieve smooth, soft healthy skin naturally there has to be compounds such as Babassu wax, Maracuja passion fruit extract, grape seed oil, and nutrients like natural vitamin E. These compounds will provide adequate moisture to the skin, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. All of these things are necessary in order for you to reduce your wrinkles, and revitalize the skin.

Even though they are natural byproducts of petroleum refinement, you should avoid products that include moisturizing compounds like mineral oil, petrolatum, and paraffin wax. These supposed moisturizers offer no nutrients to the skin, and no antioxidants. They cannot even penetrate the skin effectively, clog your pores, and eventually cause your skin to become drier than it was before.

For achieving smooth, soft healthy skin naturally you need ingredients in your products like Jojoba oil, which like Maracuja extract regulates the production of sebum so that your skin never becomes too oily or too dry. Active Manuka honey is an excellent antibacterial compound, restores and rejuvenates your skin, and stimulates the creation of new collagen. There are other compounds that will stimulate collagen creation as well.

For optimum tissue development you need a combination of two all natural compounds put together by man. Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10 is a nano-emulsified for of coenzyme Q10, and Cynergy TK is a fusion of protein complexes and enzymes. These two ingredients have the proven ability to help you to produce an abundant supply of new collagen, and they encourage the production of elastin as well.

I mentioned grape seed oil as an ingredient for producing smooth, soft healthy skin naturally, but I didn't mention what it does. Grape seed oil has been proven to inhibit the destructive behavior of the collagenase, elastase, and hyaluronidase enzymes that break your tissues and polymer down. By adding Phytessence Wakame kelp extract to the picture, you will give your hyaluronic acid two sources of protection.

Make no mistake about it. You simply need to have the right mixture of the most effective ingredients possible in order to achieve your goal of attaining smooth, soft healthy skin naturally. With the right ingredients anything is possible.

Will IE9 change the way we use the web?

By Matt Warman, Consumer Technology Editor, Telegraph

The internet of the future is likely to look very different from the distinct pages and sites we visit today – that was the message as Microsoft launched the latest version of their much-maligned Internet Explorer web browser. And while every major manufacturer always claims that theirs is a revolutionary product, the company that remains best known for Windows and Office might just be on the right track this time. Headlines around the world greeted IE9 as Microsoft's most ambitious yet, while others called it revolutionary. Respected British website Techradar.com went so far as to call it "ie-mazing".

Almost since it launched Internet Explorer in 1995, the browser has been troublesome for Microsoft. Even when it was in use by 95 per cent of all web users in 2002, a tech-savvy audience maintained that it was not the best option available. Firefox, the now-defunct Netscape Navigator and more recently Google Chrome have set the pace for speed and ease of use. With usage now down to less than two-thirds of the online population Microsoft has staged a fightback that, for once, appears to be winning many experts round, even if browsers are all starting to look more similar anyway.

At the heart of IE9, however, are two key features: the first is a bid to make websites more like applications, which means that the depth of features of, say Microsoft Word, could also be available to any site where developers have sufficient resources. In practice a chunk of that is largely cosmetic, but it's a visual change that makes a genuine difference to the way people use the web. In the words of Microsoft's Leila Martine, head of Windows in the UK, "it's making web pages first class citizens". Given that users spend around half their time using a computer online, some might argue this is rather overdue.

Secondly, however, is the integration between hardware and software: with the advance of new web programming language HTML5, Microsoft is now able to offload much of the burden of processing graphics onto computer hardware that's built for the job, the graphics processing unit (GPU). This means that web pages are rendered at significantly greater speed – in a demo, the company showed IE9 to be at least five times quicker than Google Chrome.

It's the combination of these two features, primarily, that Microsoft hopes will have a transformative effect on the internet: the download site for IE9 is called "beautyoftheweb.com", and in some of the company's demos there clearly are new possibilities. Amazon, for instance, has built a site called Bookshelf, which combines the best bits of browsing in a bookshop – looking at covers, getting a sense of what else is around – with providing useful additional information about titles and genres. The effect is genuinely unlike anything else that other browsers can produce successfully.

All this is not to say, however, that the web will change instantly. And anyway, Google, Firefox and other browsers are all heading in the same direction. But what's certain is that the development of applications, both for the web and for the iPhone and other mobile devices, has made many companies notice that the internet on a desktop or laptop PC was starting to feel strangely limited: Microsoft has tried to solve this by tightly integrating IE9 with Windows 7, as Google will when it launches its equivalent Chrome operating system. What that means is that, in future, the line between being online and simply using a computer may become indistinguishable – but broadband, mobile phone and wifi providers will have to sort out getting us all connected first.

He may not understand the fundamental news effect to the world economy, but he makes a simple adjustmentin the way he looks at trading. Despite the warning from die-hard technical traders to ignore the news, he trusts his intuition and does what's right... not what people told him.

The cpu used on HP Pavilion DV4 2164US notebook is probably the greatest between latest processors. With the latest cutting edge engineering utilized on this specific processor it is easy to perform multi-tasks without difficulty, of course considering the huge support of RAM that brings torque to this monster notebook.

Smart Electric Guitars for Children

Millions of families all throughout the United States spoil and pamper their children by buying them tons of toys. This is a good thing, especially because children need to experiment a lot, and they need to see as many aspects of real life as they can while they are still young if they are to get a head start in life. And since toys are usually miniature representations of stuff in the real world, they are perfect if you want to prepare your little one for adulthood. Many homes have special storage places for mountains of toys, each more interesting than the others. One type of toys has particularly sparked my interest: electric guitars for kids.

Well, sure, I admit, it is because I play the guitar too. I played in many bands, even participated in a large concert once. That's why the guitar is special for me. Now let's get to the point. What are these things? Are they worth having around? Do they add any value to your child's playtime?

Kids electric guitars come in various shapes and sizes, and they perform different functions. For example, there are the ones that are realistic, with chords, tone knobs, pickups, tuning pegs and the whole "shabang". The only thing is that they are child size, so a kid can easily wield them and carry them around. These are perfect for kids who are serious about learning to play the guitar.

Then, there are the guitars that are designed for younger kids. Those are plain old electronic toys. They look like real guitars, except they are really small, have no chords, and they play music on speakers. To a guitar enthusiast, they might look like they are worthless, but wait a minute. Actually, they are perfect to introduce the concept of guitar playing to very young kids, and so they can ultimately be the trigger that a child needs to fall in love with playing and with music in general. Playing with this kind of guitars is loads of fun even for adults, and the cool thing is that they teach you the basics. For instance, when you play a song in "learning" mode, the frets where you need to put your finger actually light up to have you learn play the song by yourself.

Electric guitars are definitely things your kid should have. Who knows? Your kid may be the next Yingwie Malmsteen and you don't even know it.

I had already spent a small fortune on TV but I do not much fancy the task of painting my living room a whole different color just to cover a bit 'of unsightly cables. Take what I thought it was morereasonable of the two options that the computer jumping up to try to find some shelving and furniture that I could put in under the TV.

How High Are Furnace Prices?

When buying home appliances, many consumers will first take a look at the price and check if the item is within their budget. Bigger appliances can be costly and can be a very big investment especially for a starting family. Many of the major appliances you might want to buy is a furnace heater to help you feel comfortable and warm during the cold winter months. A new furnace costs more than a washing machine or a bathtub. But considering its importance and necessity, installing this in the house is what many families aim for.

A heating system uses a furnace to burn fuel and provides heat. The heat either transfers through the surrounding air or circulate through the house through steam pipes. The furnace uses electricity, oil, or natural gas for fuel.

On the prices, a furnace prices goes from $500 to $3000, depending on size and efficiency. This is indeed a huge sum of money, but think again of its benefits. While the price may be a main deciding factor, it is not suppose to be the only aspect to be considered. There are other several factors to think about.

For one, the type of the furnace is a major consideration. Gas furnaces are popular choices among conventional houses, while electric powered ones are for those whose local electric prices are lower. Oil furnaces are also preferable for large heaters because of the large heat output of oil fuels. The type of heat circulation must match the design of your house. For example, a forced steam circulation system can only be used for a house designed to contain high pressure steam.

Efficiency must also be considered when buying a furnace. The price usually depends on efficiency; the most efficient also being the most expensive. On the bright side, a highly efficient furnace will let you enjoy savings from less operating and fuel costs.

Overall, costs may be a large determining factor in buying a furnace, but don't forget about the other important considerations. It is also suggested that you visit a professional so you can pick the most suitable furnace for your house and lifestyle.

Manila, a treat for the visitor

Manila has been identified as the only city in Asia that resembles a Latin American city and this is not surprising considering that the Philippines was ruled by the Spanish for over three centuries. World War II was a tragic episode for the Filipinos and their capital city, as Manila was one of the most extensively destroyed cities in the war. Before this destruction Manila was considered one of the loveliest cities in the world. Today Manila has regained some of its lustre, offering many interesting experiences for the inquisitive traveller.

The major tourist attractions of Manila are concentrated along Manila Bay, making an excursion to the site almost mandatory for the visitor wishing to obtain a genuine taste of the city.

A visit to Rizal Park should be on the itinerary of every visitor to Manila. Also known as the Luneta, this park offers some of the city's best museums, an array of restaurants, a planetarium and an open-air theatre providing free of charge classical music performances. This was the site of execution of the Philippines' national hero, Jose Rizal.

Another historical site of note is Intramuros, the remains of the old Spanish walled settlement, which includes museums and churches such as the most significant church in the country, the Manila Cathedral.

Make it point to visit the magnificent Malacanang Palace, the official residence of the Philippines' President. The scenic route to the palace offers many visual delights and visitors may take a stroll in the palace gardens.

A variety of dining options are to be found in Manila, from upscale restaurants to mobile food stalls. Most international fast food chains are well represented in Manila, including Burger King, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Wendy's, KFC, Taco Bell and many more.

An interesting option is to sample the readily available street food sold from food stalls. Experience such highlights as Chicharon – fried pork rinds usually consumed with beer; Balut, boiled duck embryo, unusual but not for the squeamish; local Philippine barbecue; and Silog, a breakfast dish composed of garlic fried rice and fried egg.

Manila is a paradise for the avid shopper, with choices including everything from the massive SM Mall of Asia with its world class boutiques to street markets where many bargains are to be found.

The nightlife in Manila is renowned for its vibrancy and diversity, with a huge variety of bars, pubs and nightclubs on offer. Many feature talented Filipino bands which never fail to put up a rousing performance.

To experience delights such as these it is vital to select a suitable hotel in Manila. In this regard an obvious choice would be The Heritage Hotel Manila, a premier luxury Manila hotel that meets the expectations of its discerning clientele.

Lithium War Over the World

Since June, a number of international auto companies and electronics companies are using large-scale lithium battery joint investment competition. This includes the Toyota and Matsushita, Nissan and NEC, the public and Sanyo, Bosch and Samsung, they believe that lithium batteries in the coming years will gradually replace the nickel-metal hydride batteries, lead the direction of development of hybrid vehicles. At a time when Chinese auto companies are working to develop the nickel metal hydride battery assembly of hybrid cars in order to focus on display during the Beijing Olympics.

According to report, the stability of lithium batteries due to fears from the "15″ begins, in the new energy vehicle development process, not to focus the direction of lithium, but chose Ni-MH battery.

June 26, the National 863 Program, "Energy-saving and new energy vehicles," major projects team leader Ouyang Ming Gao said in an interview, in lithium batteries, the domestic and foreign advanced level yet. Alone no problem in terms of battery materials, the performance of a single cell is not worse than the advanced international level. But the composition of the battery pack, its stability, consistency of production, service life, there are still big problems.

Lithium War

According to public reports, in order to reduce risks and improve technology industrial efficiency, a number of international car manufacturers and electronics manufacturers have chosen the way of co-energy lithium battery of new car development.

Toyota and Matsushita's Panasonic EV Energy joint venture company will build two hybrid battery manufacturing plant, from 2009 production of lithium batteries, and Toyota are scheduled to assemble the first car in 2010 sold plug-in hybrid vehicles, plug-in hybrid power car battery can be charged by domestic supply.

A global leader in lithium battery production – Sanyo Electric Co. will start mass production car by the end of 2009 lithium batteries, jointly developed with public control. In addition to the general public, the Sanyo is also with Ford and Honda to develop lithium batteries. Sanyo's goal is to 2015, occupation of the global car market with more than 40% share of the lithium battery. Sanyo also can be used to speed up the development of a plug-in hybrid electric cars lithium battery, and strive to begin selling the product in 2011.

Nissan and NEC announced joint production of lithium batteries, and plans to launch in 2010 assembly lithium battery electric vehicle.

General Motors and South Korea's LG Chemical Company's CompactPower companies and Continental Automotive Systems signed a contract two lithium batteries.

Japan's GS Yuasa, Mitsubishi Corporation and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has invested 3 billion yen (about 190 million yuan) build a Japanese lithium Energy (LithiumEnergyJapan). Mitsubishi Motors will begin selling in 2009, hybrid vehicles, and in mid-2010, sales of pure electric vehicles.

With the formation of the capacity of these investments is gradually released in 2012, the lithium is likely to replace the nickel-metal hydride batteries. Vice president of Geely Automobile Research Zhang Tong told reporters, according to his understanding, this year, Mercedes will have lithium batteries for hybrid assembly of a type listed.

China line

Previously, the stability of the domestic industry are generally considered poor lithium use may occur because of spontaneous combustion temperature is too high, the actual trial in domestic enterprises, also have occurred in vehicles equipped with lithium burning case, therefore, not be lithium batteries as a key R & D direction, but chose Ni-MH battery. It is understood that "10

Five "period, the nickel-hydrogen battery R & D investment is much greater than lithium batteries. However, large multinational corporations mean that domestic investment in lithium-related technology may have to re-route options?

Domestic research and development of hybrid type, such as FAW Pentium hybrid, SAIC Roewe 750 hybrid Chery A5 hybrid, hybrid, etc. Long An Jiexun are using nickel metal hydride batteries.

However, even technical line to adjust the short term is difficult to catch up with international advanced level.

Zhang Tong said that according to his understanding, the international advanced level of control on the lithium battery has been sympathetically, about to break through the bottleneck stability. According to the business community to reflect the domestic lithium battery materials, batteries monomer / component processing technology, control of key technologies such as batteries still awaiting a breakthrough. Moreover, the issue of consistency of production has not fully resolved, does not have the production capacity.

So far, China has no battery joint research and development companies and auto companies situation. "Eleventh Five-Year" Plan 863 "energy saving and new energy vehicles," major projects, the participation of lithium battery research and development of enterprises and research institutions include: Beijing Nonferrous Metal Research Institute, Suzhou Star Constant Power Co., Ltd., Tianjin Lishen Battery Co., Ltd. and CITIC UNITA solid for the new Energy Technology Co., Ltd..

Zhang Tong said that in the lithium battery field, Chinese enterprises still have a chance. Because our country had to develop consumer electronic products for the lithium battery industry has laid a good foundation conducive to the development of battery in the field.

A welcome change, industrialization has become the "during" the main direction of development of lithium batteries. "Energy saving and new energy auto project," the general members of the Group, Tongji University Dean of Zhuoping car told reporters that the company take lithium battery R & D projects have also been asked in the "Eleventh Five-Year" end of the formation of a certain amount of production capacity.

Zhuoping that reliability will require substantial funding reform process, additional equipment. "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" period, the central government will invest 60 million yuan Li-ion battery development, the company also asked to assume the project inputs in accordance with the ratio of 10 times the matching funds, so that the total investment will reach 600 million yuan. According to report, "15″ period, the lithium battery research and development on the national allocation of funds, only 800 million with local matching funds, only about 16 million yuan.

Although the "Eleventh Five-Year" period of the input greatly increased, but compared to the huge multinational investment, domestic investment remains low. It is understood that only a company's lithium batteries Sanyo project investment reached 800 billion yen (776.7 million U.S. dollars).

Cross or follow?

The face of new energy vehicles and the overall status of the development of the backward, the industry began to rethink some of China's automobile industry development strategy by leaps and bounds.

In 2000, just returned near Wan Gang told the State Council put forward the development of clean energy vehicles, China's auto industry to achieve leapfrog development strategy. The basis of this theory is: in the field of electric vehicles in this new and foreign in our starting line similar level of technology and industrialization gap between the relatively small, vigorously develop a new generation of industrialization as a vehicle to promote the domestic automobile industry by leaps and bounds development of strategic initiatives, there may be a new round of competition in the world automotive industry occupying high ground, to obtain a favorable position to improve the international competitiveness of the domestic auto industry.

Early 2006, when he was "15″ electric vehicle major science and technology projects of the overall team leader, said Wan Gang, Dongfeng, Chang'an, Chery and FAW hybrid electric car from 2006 onwards the market. Chery said in 2007 to achieve the industrialization of hybrid vehicles to achieve 30 000 production.

However, to date, our country has not a mass production hybrid vehicles. By this time, to hybrid Toyota Prius has been known in the global sales of 1 million.

June 26, the National Development and Reform Commission spokesman told reporters that the domestic development of the current line of cars followed the international advanced level is because we in this area beyond and innovative strength is still insufficient. While still upholding the direction of the simultaneous development of multiple technologies, when the direction of adjustment of international development, they can promptly adjust, and will not touch. The hybrid vehicles are on the domestic rate of industrialization is not optimistic.

The direction of electronic Components Technology Innovation

To speed up our pace of technological innovation of electronic components, electronic components, technology innovation to increase efforts to improve the level of technological innovation of electronic components, electronic components by the producing countries into power, we must understand our country and the world status of electronic components and technological development, market demand, the gap at home and abroad, borrowing from the successful experience. Explore the following key trends in innovation of electronic components.

Capacitors and resistors: chip-based, high-capacity, long life

Ceramic capacitor capacitor in the world market will remain dominant, small size, large capacity, high voltage, high frequency interference and the array of ceramic capacitors will be the development direction, while the products will be ceramic chip capacitors and tantalum capacitors mainstream.

Small size, large capacity, long life, high temperature, low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and other aluminum electrolytic capacitor is still the direction of development. Chip tantalum capacitor products continue to lead to smaller, high-capacity, low impedance, low equivalent series resistance direction, functional polymer tantalum capacitor production and application will be further expanded, tantalum powder CV value will continue to increase. Metallized plastic film capacitors demand will grow for the information and communications equipment, plastic film capacitor market will continue to expand. High frequency, to meet safety standards, high temperature, small size, chip type plastic film capacitor will be the direction of development.

Chip resistor resistor will continue to be the mainstream product, its size will continue to shrink, 0603 type (0.6mm × 0.3mm), will go into large-scale application stage. High resistance, low resistance and high voltage chip resistors needs to expand, the film chip resistor production and application will be further expanded with 2, 4 with a combination of type 1005 chip resistors to debut. High-power, small size, high stability, high precision metal film resistors will continue the development direction, while it will reduce the current noise and increase the added value of digital technology to the development of a metal film resistors, new applications, the precision type, ultra-precision products can not replace the chip resistors, and therefore, it will still have a certain market space. Wirewound resistors to the security of (fire), high precision, small size, direction and low resistance is the note of a trend.

Inductors and Transformers: Small, lightweight, high efficiency

Coils, inductors, chip products market will be driven, technological innovation should be very small, fine, composite direction, chip products should be winding type stacked-type developments in two directions simultaneously.

Electronic Transformer development should be small, thin, lightweight and high efficiency center. Pulse transformer in the field should be small size and surface mounting direction. In the product structure, ring core transformer demand will grow, EI-shaped core transformer demand has decreased, while the growing demand for ferrite core transformers, laminated silicon steel transformer type sharp decline in demand. Flyback transformer outlook, HDTV, large screen, wide screen TV and computer monitor flyback transformer used in the demand will steadily expand. Power | Regulator transformers bright future, computers and peripherals and communications products for the transformer to develop a large market.

Connectors: Small space, high-density, high frequency of

The development of the connector should be smaller, high-density, high-speed, high-frequency direction. Miniaturization is the central connector spacing smaller, high-density core to achieve a large number of. High density pcb (printed circuit board) connectors effective way to reach a total of 600 core items, special devices up to 5000 cores. High-speed transmission is the modern computer, information technology and network technology required time scale of signal transmission rate up to MHz frequency, pulse time to reach sub-millisecond, thus requiring a high-speed connectors. To meet the high-frequency millimeter-wave technology is the development of RF coaxial connectors have access to millimeter wave frequency band.

Switch should be small, thin, lightweight, surface mount, energy saving, high reliability, multi-functional, composite direction, and improve heat resistance, sealing, touch and environmental resistance.
