84-year-old Shi Yide is practicing for the 20th Asia Masters Athletics Championships at Liuzhou City Stadium. More than 1,900 master athletes from 20 countries and regions will gather in Rugao, east China’s Jiangsu Province to display their skills. Shi suffered from tuberculosis in the 1990s after retirement, and started running to strengthen his pulmonary functions. In 2006, Shi began attending national competitions and won many awards. Shi Yide said, "Humanity lies in movement. Life lies in the movement. So we should go outside and it’s better than staying at home.” This year’s competition might be Shi’s last, due to age restrictions. He hopes to perform well and end his sporting career on a high note.
When you're related to leader of a Communist controlled country it's okay for you abuse your power by doing things like this, shutting down an entire city so your capable of holding a massive wedding using government funds.
That's exactly what this communist mayor did in China. He shut down his entire city so he could use the streets in order to hold a massive wedding.
So for those who praise communism as a good example of how the government should run and allocate funding, think again! The truth is communism allows for people in power to steal even more easily than those in democratic countries.

Video captures the moment a large chunk of mountain fell down in Bijie city, SW China's Guizhou Province on Monday. No casualties have been reported yet.
According to locals, the Chinese government has been attempting to drill underneath of the mountain in order to house military units. The Chinese government refuses to confirm whether this is accurate or not.
Escalation of the Doklam stand off+ into a shooting war is unlikely to deliver significant gains for China, and a wider conflict carries the risk of heavy casualties tilting the odds in favour of diplomacy prevailing despite a barrage of angry words from Beijing.
The assessment in top government circles is that a flare up at Doklam and other possible trouble-spots along the India-China border is not going to translate into a tangible territorial or strategic advantage for China as an armed conflict may not throw up clear winners and losers. If India does not suffer the humiliation as it did in the 1962 war, China's aura as the pre-eminent Asian power and rising challenger to American might could be dented — an unattractive scenario ahead of a crucial Communist Party congress due in September and a leadership conclave that precedes it.
The possibility of a conflict spreading to other areas along the 3,488km India-China border — large sections of which are disputed — is worrisome for both sides and neither has a clear upper hand. At Doklam itself, geography gives India the higher ground and a distinct military advantage. India lags behind China in border infrastructure but a conflict will be a lot less uneven than Chinese hawks anticipate and fighting could mean heavy toll for both armies.
That’s Paris, obviously. There’s the Eiffel Tower, and there are some of those quaint Parisian fountains and buildings. Yeah?
Nope. In fact, that shot was taken nearly 6,000 miles from the City of Lights. So... what’s the deal?
That’s actually Tianducheng, a luxury real estate development and Paris look-alike that’s located in Hangzhou, China.
Tianducheng lacks much of what Paris has to offer though — including people. The development is now more or less abandoned, giving it an even eerier, ghost-town feel.
According to the Atlantic Cities, Tianducheng has been in the works since 2007. The area, however, hasn’t seen much success yet. While the development could accommodate 10,000 residents, it is largely uninhabited.
The lack of people is mostly attributed to its odd location. Tianducheng is surrounded mostly by farmland and odd dead-end roads that snake throughout the countryside.
The Paris copycat is actually a pretty impressive clone of the real thing. The 300-foot Eiffel Tower replica looks pretty realistic, though it’s only about a third of the size of its French counterpart. By comparison, the Las Vegas replica at the Paris Las Vegas is half-scale and clocks in at 541 feet.
In a recent look at the strange locale, the Atlantic’s Henry Grabar said:
Tianducheng, a miniature Paris near Hangzhou, has an Eiffel Tower over 300 feet high, and a replica of a fountain from the Luxemburg Gardens in a main square called “Champs Elysées.” But it also has “a driver in a top hat and tails [who] drives a horse and buggy to a yellow church at the top of a hill, where a Chinese ‘priest’ in black robes and white clerical collar stages Western wedding ceremonies at an altar hung with a cross.”
China is no stranger to lookalike locations and pop-up cities. From the Venetian water town, also in Hungzhou, to French chateau replicas to fake beaches at the recently opened New Century Global Center, China offers the opportunity for a whole lot of eyebrow-raising moments. The Chinese amusement park Window of the World features a number of replica structures — including the former World Trade Center buildings.

Chinese authorities were apparently gearing up for war against Islamists using a mosque in the Western portion of the country that is currently a cesspool of Muslim extremism.
According to Chinese officials there were talks of a Civil War in order to seize the province from China and converted into a Muslim controlled country. Chinese authorities quickly raided the mosque and ended up finding a plethora of homemade weaponry forged by the Muslim extremists
What started as a conversation regarding not being able to make this weeks salary payment on time quickly escalated to a hostage situation.
A Russian employee who was tired of his boss making late payments pulled a handgun on his boss and held him at gunpoint until his check was written.
Apparently things are so bad in China for some people they've resorted to eating live snakes and frogs like this man.
Or, perhaps this is just an average meal that every day Chinese citizens enjoy on a daily basis and us Westerners just think it's gross.

Buried in the Himalayas in the Siliguri Corridor, also known as the Chicken's neck, Chinese and Indian military forces sit on the respective sides of their vague borders and entrench themselves for what could become a shooting war between nuclear powers.
Both Beijing and New Delhi see the conflict as a shoving match for dominance in the Himalayas, an age-old struggle between the two states that most recently went hot in 1962, before either state had perfected nuclear bombs.
But now a Chinese construction project aiming to build a road that can support 40 ton vehicle traffic threatens a critical passage in India and risks alienating New Delhi from its ally, Bhutan.
As China asserts sovereignty over the disputed border zone with the building project, Indian troops have entrenched themselves, according to a dispatch from the South China Morning Post.
“New bunkers are being built, the ground is being mined to pre-empt Chinese attack, machine-gun nests are being placed at strategic points, and soldiers are performing battle drills at least twice a day,” according to the Post.
( The Chicken's Neck–also known as the Siliguri Corridor—is a narrow strip of land, 24 kilometers (15 mi) in width separating India from its northeast states. The area is marked in red. Note that the disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir is divided between India, China, and Pakistan (the colored areas represent the parts which are not under control of India). Wikimedia Commons)
Both India and Bhutan have protested China's ambitious one belt one road program to undertake massive infrastructure projects across Asia, and now China seems intent on testing the two nations' resolve.
“They are trying to show Bhutan who calls the shots in the Himalayas. So we have to ensure we are capable of defending Bhutan’s territorial integrity,” Maj. Gen. Gaganjit Singh, who commanded a division in India’s Northeast before retiring as the deputy chief of the Defence Intelligence Agency, told the Post. “We have to prove we can defend Bhutan and we are determined not to lose the current terrain and tactical advantage we have in Chumbi Valley.”
At 9,800 feet in elevation, the Indian troops sit and watch the Chinese below as they push forward with their road.
“It’s important for us to stop the Chinese here because if we fail, they will roll on to the Chicken’s Neck and can cut off our northeast,” said Singh.
Meanwhile, China, the numerically superior army, declared it would protect its border "at all costs," and that the Indians should have "no illusions" about their resolve.
But while China sees this step as vital for asserting dominance and achieving a major construction initiative, and India sees it as a vital threat to its national integrity, neither side wants serious fighting to start.
“A hot war between India and China could squander all the gains from their extensive economic diplomacy, and that would work against each country’s interests in a big way,” Michael Kugelman, the Deputy Director of the Wilson Center’s Asia Program, told The Cipher Brief of the conflict.

A teacher at a Chinese university has been accused of hitting students with an iron rod because they were late for class.
Disturbing footage, which emerged last week, showed the male teacher beating seven female students on the hand in Chengdu, south-west China.
The educator has been dismissed after the clip recently became viral onilne.
The footage was uploaded to a student forum named 'Sichuan high school headlines' on Weibo on June 9.
In the video, a group of female students lined up to receive physical punishment at a classroom.
The male teacher, in military uniform, could be seen beating each student's hand five times with an iron rod.
Students had to keep shaking their hands to relieve the pain.
The man teaches aviation services at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, according to a report by Beijing Times.
The teacher, surnamed Nie, became angry after students were late for a morning exercise, an eyewitness told Beijing Times.
Mr Nie, a former soldier, demand students line up at the front of the classroom to be punished.
The incident reportedly took place on December 13, 2016, but the video was revealed last week.
Each male students and female students was hit for ten and five times respectively.
The student said it was not the first time Mr Nie had beaten students.
Four out of five students in the class have been punished by Mr Nie in the past.
A statement posted to the school's official Weibo confirmed the incident.
Mr Nie was fired by the university on June 9, according to the statement.
In a sharp attack, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor blamed the government for the 'rising intolerance in the country' on Tuesday.
Addressing the Lok Sabha, Tharoor said, "It is safer to be a cow than a Muslim in India." Tharoor said that a Bangladeshi friend told him that fundamentalist leaders in his country attacked India in this fashion.
The Congress MP said that India was built on the premise of respecting diversity, and it is the responsibility of the government to uphold that premise. “Hate at home and Make in India abroad cannot go hand in hand,” he said.
Tharoor also pointed out that foreign publications were talking about growing intolerance in India. "We are shamed with the reputation we gaining abroad."
Tharoor also reminded of the the Kerala House raid that was conducted last month, at a time when African delegation was in India. "What would they have thought about the intolerance in the country," he asked.
Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and reminding of his election promises, Tharoor said, "Has the Prime Minister forgotten that he's a leader and he is supposed to walk with people belonging to all caste, class and religion?"
Tharoor also demanded abolition of death penalty, describing it as an "aberration in a healthy democracy".
Raising the issue during Zero Hour, he said hanging people does not deter crime and there is a lot of subjectivity in application of death penalty. "It (death penalty) is an aberration in a healthy democracy," Tharoor said, adding that instead preventive and reformative measures should be strengthened to prevent crimes.
Contending that death penalty has mostly affected the marginalised people, the Congress leader said the state should not become killer. "We should abolish death penalty to uphold the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi," he said.
According to him, around 70 per cent of the UN member nations have abolished death penalty.

CNN’s Reza Aslan has been facing some heavy criticism after he ate part of a human brain while filming a segment on a Hindu sect in India.
The episode, part of a series called Believer with Reza Aslan, provoked disgust from many viewers and prompted backlash from many American Hindus after it was aired Sunday, the Daily Mail reported.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), the only Hindu in Congress and one of the more high-profile critics of the episode, blasted CNN for using “sensationalist” ways to promote Hinduism.
2/ I am very disturbed that CNN is using its power and influence to increase people’s misunderstanding and fear of Hinduism.
— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) March 7, 2017
“I am very disturbed that CNN is using its power and influence to increase people’s misunderstanding and fear of Hinduism,” Gabbard wrote on Twitter. “Aslan apparently sought to find sensationalist and absurd ways to portray Hinduism.”
“Aslan and CNN didn’t just throw a harsh light on a sect of wandering ascetics to create shocking visuals – as if touring a zoo – but repeated false stereotypes about caste, karma and reincarnation that Hindus have been combating tirelessly,” she added.
Aslan, 44, met with the Aghori sect when he was invited to eat cooked brain tissue during a ritual in which they also spread ashes from cremated human bodies on his face.
He drank an alcoholic drink out of a human skull before he ate the brain.
The Aghori guru got mad at Aslan at one point when he shouted, “I will cut your head off if you keep talking so much.”
