KUALA LUMPUR Wholesale Nike Air Max 90 Mens Blue , Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- The Malaysian people have chosen "Lu," or "Road" in English, as the Chinese character of the year in 2017, taking cue from the country's active plan in infrastructure expansion.

Pheng Yin Huah, president of FCAM, said the character "Road" perfectly summed up how the Malaysian people felt about this year.
He referred to the launch of several lines of the Mass Rapid Transit system, the beginning of the construction work for the East Coast Rail Link, a major project linking west part of the Malaysian Peninsula with east coast and the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail, which will call tender soon.
The selection of "Road" not only reflected people's better understanding of the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative Wholesale Nike Air Max 90 Mens Black , but also embodied people's expectation to lead a better life, said Pheng.
Other nominated characters include "Anxiety," "Taxation," "Waiting," "Election," "First," "Gold Wholesale Nike Air Max 90 Womens Cheap ," "Chaos," and "Terror."
Malaysia is one of several Asian countries and regions to select a Chinese character each year. About 24 percent of the Malaysian people belong to the Chinese community. Though most of the votes are from them, the organizers say more and more Malay and Indian people began to participate.
Last year's annual Chinese character was "Greed".
Billboards featuring Melania Trump and the slogan "just imagine how far you can go with a little bit of English" were removed Tuesday from the Croatian capital after her lawyer threatened a lawsuit.
The billboards were part of a marketing campaign by a private English language school in Zagreb, which tried to persuade Croats to learn English by reminding them of the Slovenian-born U.S. first lady's personal experience.
But Mrs. Trump did not accept what was apparently meant to be a joke about her English, spoken with a heavy accent. Her Slovenian lawyer demanded that the billboards, showing Melania Trump delivering a speech standing before a fluttering American flag, be immediately removed.
"I'm satisfied with the fact that the school admitted that they violated the law and that they are ready to remove the billboards and (Facebook) ads Wholesale Nike Air Max 90 Womens China ," lawyer Natasa Pirc-Musar told The Associated Press. "We are still analyzing possible further legal steps."
Melania Trump has hired the law firm to protect her image, which has appeared on various products in her native Slovenia, including cakes, underwear and tourism advertisements.
Pirc-Musar said that the Croatian school has apologized for the billboards, but that the statement also needs to be published by the Croatian and Slovenian state news agencies.
"We are very sorry that the billboards were misunderstood as something intended to mock the U.S. first lady," Ivis Buric, a spokeswoman for the school Wholesale Nike Air Max 90 Womens Free Shipping , American Institute, said. "It was meant to be something positive, to show her as a role model."
Buric admitted that the short advertising campaign turned out to be "very successful" because of the wide publicity it received both locally and internationally. She said that the school intends to put up new billboards, this time without Melania Trump's image.
Melania Trump was born in neighboring Slovenia as Melanija Knavs. She left Slovenia in her 20s to pursue an international modeling career before meeting Donald Trump at a Fashion Week party in New York in 1998.
England rugby head coach Eddie Jones speaks during a press conference at the Millennium Bridge House in London on October 26, 2017.
James Haskell's dip in form at club level cost him a place in England's rugby squad for the upcoming November tests matches, with coach Eddie Jones opting instead for three emerging flankers on Thursday.

"I had a chat with Haskell on Saturday," Jones said. "At the moment, he's just not playing well enough, but the door isn't shut to him. He's been a great servant to English rugby and I'm sure he can regain his form."
Sam Underhill, Tom Curry and Sam Simmonds, who are all 22 or younger Wholesale Nike Air Max 90 Womens Pink , were the up-and-coming flankers selected ahead of Haskell with less than two years to go until the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
