LONDON Chaussures Nike Air Max 97 KPU TPU Bleu Blanche Homme En ligne , March 9 (Xinhua) -- Chinese-style Gangnam flash dance has made its street debut in Britain.
Liverpool city center's main square was crowded as the dance was performed during celebrations to mark Chinese Lantern Festival.
Hundreds of people cheered on the dancers in the city's Clayton Square when Fenfen Huang of non-profit arts & cultural organization China Pearl introduced the flash dance.
More than 100 shoppers and passers-by joined in the dance when Huang and other people performed Xiao Ping Guo (Little Apple) dance, creating a carnival atmosphere in one of the city's busiest shopping streets.
Xiao Ping Guo dance, designed after the emergence of a popular hit composed by a Chinese songwriter, has taken China by storm and gained a level of popularity comparable to Gangnam-style.
For Huang Chaussures Nike Air Max 97 OG UNDFTD Undefeated Sail Speed Rouge Blanche Pas Cher , who came from the city of Linhai, Zhejiang Province in China and has been living in Liverpool for over 13 years, the aim is to "introduce it to the general public for British audience to know about China's latest trend and pop culture."
"As it has never been performed in this way before in the UK we have set a new record, but we want to go further and attract even bigger crowds to take part nike air presto essential pas cher ," Huang said.
"Our aim is to create in Liverpool, my second home, a flash dance record for the greatest number outside of joining in the dance. This was our first attempt and it was a huge success."
The song was performed by Liverpool University graduate Shaun Gibson who sang in both English and Mandarin. His own version of Little Apple has been watched on various platforms in China.
Among the spectators watching Liverpool's citizens enjoying Chinese flash dancing was the city's Lord Mayor Erica Kemp.
Lord Mayor Kemp told Xinhua: "It was a lovely demonstration of different aspects of Chinese culture. We are very proud of our Chinese community in Liverpool and what they contribute to our city cannot be quantified."
Volkswagen is recalling 1,950 diesel vehicles in China to correct engine software that the automaker has admitted cheats on emissions tests.
The recall applies to 1 air presto ultra flyknit pas cher ,946 Tiguan sport utility vehicles and four Passat B6 sedans, all of them imported, the company said Monday. It said technical solutions are being developed and have yet to be submitted to Chinese authorities for approval.
Volkswagen's business in China, the largest auto market by number of vehicles sold nike air max 360 pas cher , has suffered little impact from the global emissions scandal due to the lack of popularity of diesel cars among Chinese drivers. But foreign companies are closely watched by Chinese authorities, and state media publicize suggestions of misconduct.
Europe's biggest automaker has acknowledged it installed software dubbed "defeat devices" on diesel vehicles. They switch on pollution controls when cars undergo emissions tests, but switch off during driving to improve performance.
"Volkswagen would like to sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers," the company said in a statement. "We would like to assure that we will do everything humanly possible to win back trust and take care of any concerns."
Diesel is widely used in trucks in the world's second-largest economy air max 2018 pas cher , but powered just 0.3 percent of autos sold last year in China, or a few thousand units.
Volkswagen is, along with General Motors Co., one of the most popular vehicle brands in China nike air vapormax flyknit pas cher , but is struggling with an unexpectedly sharp downturn in the market and fast-changing consumer tastes.
Auto sales in China declined in August for a third straight month, contracting by 3.4 percent from a year earlier.
VW blamed weakness in China for a 16 percent decline in its second-quarter global profit. First-half sales in China were off 0.5 percent.
The president of VW China, Jochem Heizmann, told reporters in April that the company lagged overall market growth because it lacked products in the budget SUV segment nike air max flair pas cher , where sales are surging.
In 2013, Volkswagen recalled 384,000 vehicles in China to fix gearboxes after state television publicized complaints about them.
BRUSSELS， June 8 (Xinhua) -- The Belgian city of Mechelen， about 30 km north of Brussels， is home to some 130 nationalities. As one of Belgium's most international cities， the local government puts learning Dutch as a key priority for migrants' integration.
In a recent interview with Xinhua， Mechelen mayor Bart Somers said more than half of the children under the age of 12 have foreign roots and one out of three newborns in the city has a migrant background.
According to him， in Mechelen， refugee integration begins from day one. Refugees stay at the local shelter regardless of whether or not a decision from the state on their asylum is still pending.
As Mechelen belongs to the Flemish region of Belgium， Somers said refugees can begin Dutch lessons within the first weeks of their stay so that， if they are granted asylum， they have already made progress and do not have to start the integration process from scratch.
In Mechelen， language training is mandatory and free of charge for state-recognized refugees. For those at the shelter whose asylum procedure is still ongoing， classes are optional.
"We are happy to see that most people at the shelter take Dutch lessons. Our main strength is that we always aim for the combination of Dutch lesson with employment in a common language，" said Somers.
