Influence Brought by Beijing Olympics to China

The Beijing 29th Olympic Game has been closed for about a week, but I think we Chinese will not forget the wonderful Olympic Game, it was great and successful, the most important thing is Beijing Olympic Game will bring huge and far-reaching impact to Beijing and China.

China has developed these years, but foreigners may not noticed. The changes in Beijing over the past seven years are so fast that if one revisits Beijing after a short while, many appearances from impressions not long ago would have undergone changes due to new constructions and renovations. There are so many new and old landmark buildings that one just loves both the new and old.

Constructions like Bird's Nest, Water Cube, Olympic Park, and the new CCTV building have combined Chinese and western methods. They employed western mechanics and aesthetics, and then fused with spirits and notions of special Chinese flavor. In this way they have created landmarks of greatness and beauty, enticing admiration and praises of those who see it.

To change some traditional habits, Beijing residents study how to be hygiene, ride buses and subways, dine and drink, talk, and other civilized behaviors; in order to be able to communicate with westerners, they study English and western etiquettes etc. These matters seem to be trivial and ordinary, but for Beijing residents, they are actually not simple. This is something that people who have never experienced the process of giving up old habits would not realize.

China has never been touted as a holiday sweet spot, but as the Olympiads and spectators visit, they may find that China is the perfect place for a vacation. The Chinese tourism industry will likely do very well for the few quarters following the Olympic games. If you were to make any play on the Olympic games, the tourism industry is the perfect place to start.

We look forward to this Olympics, just as its slogan "One World, One Dream" would have people looking forward to. This extraordinary meaningful goal will leave peace and security of all humankind a historical testimony and common ideal. It is the glory of China, but more, it is the expectation of the world.

Chinese were respected for Beijing Olympic’s success, we are confident and capable.

How Much do know about the folding door?

A folding door can make the space wider

A folding door is a type of door which opens by folding back in sections. They are usually to be found indoors. Create large, opening glass walls with folding doors. With up to twelve panels, openings up to 36 feet wide are possible.

Panels are connected together in a train. Panels can be hinged off both side jambs to meet in a number of ways. With an odd number stacking to one side, a swing door is possible. Instead of multiple panels on multiple tracks, Folding Doors are on a single track.

The disappearing wall, made possible by an ever-increasing number of folding-door products on the market, accomplishes for residential architects what until recently had been seen mostly in restaurants and hotels. The folding door products available today for residential applications allow 30, 40, 50 ft. or more of wall to be opened up, unobstructed, to erase the line between indoors and out.

The most common residential applications for these folding doors are in great rooms, family rooms and kitchens, where they open a wall to outdoor living areas. Depending on the model and the level of engineering applied, unobstructed openings of 10 ft. to a hundred feet can be created.

The security of folding door
Folding security door gates have been engineered to restrict access to door openings that range between 24” and 48” in width and 61” to 83” in height. Door security gates are made with a reversible hinge design that allows them to be mounted to either the right side of the doorway or the left side. When the gate is opened, it they will pivot a full 180 degrees to allow safe, convenient access to the building. Every door security gate includes a locking bar to secure the unit and block unauthorized access and/or intrusion.

Radiators Make The Winter Warm

Is washing in winter bothering you? it is so cold that having a bath in a bathroom without radiator in winter.I had the anguished experience. At that time, I always hastily washed myself and toweled off quickly, it was like battling.

Now days, radiator has becoming more popular.A conventional hot-water radiator consists of a sealed hollow metal container, usually flat in shape. Hot water enters at the top of the radiator by way of pressure, from a pump elsewhere in the building, or by convection.

Using radiator is a wise decision for old, drafty and uncomfortable bathrooms, as it offers plenty of heats to the entire room and towels and works as a main heater in the bathroom.Radiators are available in a wide verities, ranges, shapes and colors, so that you can use them according to your choice and preferences matching to your interior decoration.

Now radiators are manufactured in different materials such as glass and stone with some feel good factors. Let us have a discussion about their varieties.

Glass radiators:
These are completely transparent made from 13mm thick tough safety glass can be wall or floor mounted and available in huge range and varieties. There is no need of plumbing to install.

Stone radiators:
Stone radiators are the energy savers than the conventional. These are made of granite, marble and lime stone, can be used by electricity or plumbed into central heating system to consume less water than a traditional radiator. The stones which are being used are containing the heat retaining properties.

Low surface temperature Radiators:
These are having the heating capacity not more than 43°C and usually being used in commercial buildings as well as increasingly popular in the home for using in children's bedroom.

Cast iron radiators:
This is the cost effective option, which is very capable in gaining heat and emitting it efficiently for a long period, even if you switch off the central heating. Because of the heat retention quality of the cast iron radiators, they are becoming popular by resisting the condensation and damp of the building.

Aluminium Radiator
Advantages to aluminum radiators include lighter weight, simplified recycling (it is all one material), repairability (it can be welded), durability, environmental friendliness and lower tooling costs. They are not subject to cracking at high temperatures and as the joints are brazed, the bonds are stronger than the solder used in copper-brass radiators, the company said.

Choose the right radiator for your bathroom and enjoy your life!

China hold a successful Olympic!

Yesterday, the Beijing 29th Olympic Games was over. People all over the world celebrated the wonderful Olympic Games in Bird's Nest.

Some political analysts say Beijing placed too much importance on the Games, and others said the country failed to live up to its promises to open up and undertake political changes that would improve the country’s human rights record. But this afternoon, Jacques Rogge, the president of the International Olympics Committee, which awarded the games to Beijing in 2001, said: “The world has learned about China, and China has learned about the world, and I believe this is something that will have positive effects for the long term.”

They were a triumph of the will for a people and a government determined to show their skill and confidence, as both athletes and organizers, to a world that once treated China as a weak, servile nation.

Olympics closure was so wonderful as it's opening ceremon.The Beijing Olympics came to a dazzling close, ending two weeks of spectacular athletic performances during an Olympic competition that was surprisingly free of protests or the disruptions that some, including Beijing, had anticipated. With Chinese fans chanting “Zhongguo Jiayou!” or “Go China!,” and hundreds of millions of people tuning in everyday by television, some of the biggest audiences in television history, the games served to strengthen pride in the country at a time of rising nationalism.

I think the Beijing Olympic will remembered by people all over the world. It's maybe the nicest menory of someone who won in the Olympic game.It's success will affect the 2012 London Olympic and others from now on.

The Real Olympic Spirit

The 29th Beijing Olympic Game is going to the end. I was deeply affected by some of matches. I think may be this is because of the real Olympic spirit and it’s charm.

Lang Ping, Nicknamed the “Iron Hammer,” is considered by many to be a national hero in China. She was a member of the Chinese Women's National Team—winners of an Olympic gold medal at the 1984 Summer Olympics, a World Championship crown in 1982 and World Cup titles in 1981 and 1985. In 1995, Ping became the head coach of the Chinese national team and eventually guided the squad to the silver medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2005, she signed on to be the head coach of the USA Women’s National Volleyball Team.

On the last Friday night, the 14,000-seat stadium was full packed. The Chinese team and The USA Team crossed swords in volleyball game. Both of them are excellent. In the end, the Chinese Team lost the match. With deafening cheers of "Go China" reverberating around. Although the Chinese team lost the match eventually, the spectators were calm and showed full understanding of the result.

“I am a little bit disappointed for the loss of the Chinese team, but it's okay, because we also love Lang Ping. She is very professional and her love for volleyball is really impressive. She should be credited with the improvement of the U.S. team," said a spectator in his 30s surnamed Ma, who works for an IT company.

I think everyone is the hero if he try his best. Sports has no national boundaries. Let’s cheer for Lang ping, Cheer for Olympic spirit!

A joyful travelling to Yuntai Moutain

Last week, My friends and I went to Yuntai Moutain for travelling.Yuntai Moutain, Which located at the south foot of the Taihang Mountain in Xiuwu County of Jiaozuo, Henan province. It mainly consists of the Yuntai Mountain Natural Scenic Area, Qinglong Mountain resort and other surrounding areas. The park is known for its massive gardening areas, overhanging high cliffs, flying waterfalls, secluded valleys and spring water.

We have gone to four sight of Yuntai Moutain, and spent 2 days to travel it. because it is so huge. There are many buses for visitors to go from one sight to another.

The First Day
The first sight we went to is The Red Stone Canyon. The Red Stone Canyon, which is a rare canyon sight in north China with waterfalls, lakes, pools and gullies, is highly acclaimed by gardening experts as a “natural gallery for mountain and river collections” because of its grand and exclusive landscapes. The most splendid waterfall in the canyon is the Bailong Waterfall, divided into three falls, measuring 30 meters in height. It looks as shiny as a huge silver dragon. A good place for waterfall watching is the Heilong (Black Dragon) Cave, which is as long as 30 meters with absolute darkness inside. Standing in the cave, you can not only see the marvelous falls dashing down into the deep pools but also the perilous high stiffs, narrowly separated from each other by fast-flowing gullies so that the sky is scarcely visible. The spring water flowing down the cliffs splashes into water drops that dazzle in the sunlight like colorful diamonds, looking like a unique picture hanging on the wall.

In the afternoon, we climbed the Zhuyu Mountain. Zhuyu is the main peak of Yuntai Moutain, it is 1,308 meters above the sea level. Mounting by the scaling ladder to the top, you can have a wonderful overview of everything at your feet. Looking north far into the Taihang Mountain, you can see the mountains and hills extending continuously. Looking south to the Huaichuan Plain, you can see the Yellow River winding its way like a belt and extending fields.

The Second Day

We went to the Tanpu Canyon and Quanpu Canyon. The water of Tanpu Canyon looks so clean that it looks just like a piece of pure jade set in the canyon. The Immortal Spring, which flows one meter above the ground from a funnel on the stone steps at the back of the pool, gushes all year round continuously. Another sight in the Tanpu Canyon is The well-known Yuntai Heaven Waterfall, with a falling head of 314 meters lies in the Laotan Valley scenic spot.
Quanpu Canyon is also called The Gurry Channel. There is a saying:"One spring three steps, One waterfall five steps, One pond ten steps".So, you can imagines that how beautiful it is!

The Yuntai mountain like a picture you see in the book, and it is worth traveling to Yuntai Moutain!

How to care a dog?

Dogs are human’s friends all long, people like feed dogs at home, and some of them are regarded as one of the family. A dog is not a person, it can not speak, and can not care itself, so we have to learn what to give dog for eating, how to help dog bath, how to play with dogs and make them comfortable…

What does a dog like to eat?
May be you would say:"bone". Yes, dogs like eating bone, this is a common sense. We often find a dog eating bone when watching TV or in a book. But beside the bone, dogs need other food to keep the nutrition of their bodies, it is just like human.

Dogs, especially young ones need a diet with high levels of proteins, fatty matters, vitamins and minerals to promote the development of bones and muscles. Dogs are meant to be carnivores and meat loaded with fat and protein is the best food but, you can make them omnivores /vegetarians by giving them a well balanced vegetarian meal complete with needed nutrients. Dry, canned and semi- moist foods are readily available from stores as dog food. Dry food which costs the least comes in chunks or nuggets which can be nibbled and may be served by itself or by moistening or mixing with milk, oil (1tsp corn oil with 1/ pound dry food) or with a whole cooked egg. Dogs need minimum 15% of protein a day and the average recommendation is between 22 and 25% and that of fat between 20 and 50 %.

Home made food must be well balanced. It can be boiled meat with rice, oats etc or a vegetarian option can be lentils cooked with vegetables like spinach or soya bean cooked and mixed with either rice or whole grain pasta. Food must be served warm or at room temperature and not straight out of the fridge. Fresh water for drinking should be made available at all times.

How to save money on dogs' food
The key to saving here is not to go cheap, but going big. Buy quality food, as recommended by your vet, in bulk.
For example, we found that an eight-pound bag of dog food costs about $15, while a 40-pound bag of the same food costs about $50. Buying the bigger bag saves you $25.
The same is true for cat food. The average price for a four-pound bag of food is $12, and for 20-pounds, it's $37. That's a savings of $23 when you buy in bulk.

Dogs like we human, they should have their own “home”. In modern times, Dog having their own houses is a trend. How to build a house for dogs?
There are four steps:
1. Build the base.
2. Build and attach the wall framing.
3. Add the roof frame.
4. Add the walls.

You can also buy it in pet market, there are other things for dogs such as: Dog Bed, Dog Carrier, Dog Kennel etc.

Dress up your dog
Everyone who like dogs may dress up his/her dogs with beautiful dog clothes, Vest, Pajamas etc. Dog clothes is small and nice, dogs wearing clothes will keep them warm and looks beautiful.

Dog Bathing
Bathe them once in two - three weeks or even a month. Use mild soap or shampoo. Stop use if any redness or itching is noticed. Rinse thoroughly after shampooing. When washing your dog, keep the water out of his ears and eyes as much as possible. Use large pieces of cotton to block the ears and don't forget to remove them after bath.

Dog exercise
Exercise is a requirement as important as feeding for dogs. They are inherent energetic and piquant, so, if you leave them in the house all day, they may be sick and not lively, Or become bored and bad tempered. In fact, you only need release them to run and jump, they will keep health and lively.

Is your garage safe?

With the improving of People’s standard of living, more and more people driving cars instead of walking. Some of them have their own garage, so the garage’s security has become a important matter in our life.

First of all, the garage door is the key of the garage security. The garage door not only need guarding against theft, but also fireproofing. So some garage door is also a fireproof door. Garage doors can be made out of many materials, but steel, wood. and vinyl (polyethylene) are the most popular depending on the geographic area.

An automatic garage door opener is a terrific convenience and gives a certain sense of security as well. But modern technology has turned another convenience into a potential security risk!

When you last pushed the button on your remote control, who would've thought that you made it possible for an intruder to grab your frequency code with a device referred to in the industry as a Code Grabber? This electronic device stores the code and creates a golden opportunity for a thief to enter your home once you've left.

To stop this problem from happening, make sure that you purchase a garage door opener with rolling security codes instead of a fixed code.

Lighting is imperative when it comes to security. Make sure that you purchase a unit with lights. These lights automatically come on when opening or closing the door and create a safe and secure environment when entering your garage at night.

Many overhead door openers in apartment garages have their open delay times set too slow when entering or leaving the building. Make sure that your unit has a protective beam. This beam (when driven or walked through) prevents the door from coming down and crushing objects beneath it. When you are sure that you have this beam on your unit, make sure that the open time is not longer than five seconds. This will prevent the sneak thief from entering your building.

And remember, whenever you leave your home always make sure that your overhead garage door has closed completely, otherwise you might just find a few items missing when you arrive home!

It's always a good idea to check the operation of your garage door and opener as the seasons change. Minor fluctuations in temperature and moister air can cause your garage door or opener to need minor adjustments. The best way to check your door operation is to disengage your garage door from the opener by pulling the emergency release rope (always do this with your garage door in the closed position). Operate the garage door manually; a well-balanced door will operate with 10lbs to 15 lbs of force. If your garage door feels heavier than this we recommend contacting your local garage door opener specialist to adjust the balance weight of your garage doors. Performing this simple procedure can avoid costly repairs to your opener, identify garage door problems and prevent accidents and injury.

Inauguration Ceremony of Beijing 29th Olympic Games

BEIJING, China, Aug 8, The inauguration ceremony of the 29th Olympic Games kicked off at 8 pm, August 8. I have seen the whole process of the great century ceremony, it was pleasantly surprised to me and everybody. Now, I want to share my taste with everyone here.

The Inaugural Ceremony of the Olympiads will offer a mixture of culture, history, symbols as well as an appeal to friendship and solidarity among the people of the world, as expressed by its slogan: One World, One Dream.

The main theme of inauguration ceremony is “One world, one dream”. This is the slogan of Beijing Olympic, and also the expectation of all Chinese and people all over the world. Like the Beijing Olympic songs: ”You and me”. The lyric of the song is simple, and the rhythm also is simple, but is orphean. The lyric is below:

   You and Me From one world We are family
   Travel dream
   A thousand miles Meeting in Beijing
   Come together
   Put your hand in mine
You and Me From one world We are family

At the beginning of inauguration ceremony, there were 2008 actors arraying in the square. They beat the drums which are the most age-old musical instrument. After the drums performance, China ancient civilization history was reappeared by the actors. Such as The Four Great Inventions ( paper making, typography, compass, powder),The Silk Road, The Chinese opera, Chinese Tea Culture, Four Treasures of the study and so on.

Some original idea is applied in this inauguration ceremony. Like the footprints from the Imperial Palace to the Bird Nest. The 29 footprints symbolize the history of Olympic running from Greece to China. Another idea is “letting the pigeon fly”. It is not the real ”pigeon”, but the hands of all people. They make the pigeon shapes and flying action by hands.

The lighting ceremonial is the most important part in inauguration ceremony. Li Ning, the excellent gymnastics athlete is the lighter of Beijing Olympic. He is suspended in mind air, run around the bird nest, and light the Olympic lighting.
