Hi guys. Do you know what’s the mascots of beijing olympic game?The Fuwa. The designs were created by Han Meilin, a famous Chinese artist. Today, I’m going to introduce the fuwa to you, their different names and meanings at first. Then, I will talk about their target market.
There are five fuwa: Beibei, Jingjing, Huanhuan, Yingying, and Nini. When you put their names together, the names form the sentence "Beijing huanying ni," which means "Beijing welcomes you". Designed to express the playful qualities of five little children who form an intimate circle of friends, Fuwa also embody the natural characteristics of four of China's most popular animals -- the Fish, the Panda, the Tibetan Antelope, the Swallow -- and the Olympic Flame. And fish represented aquatic sports. Panda represented weightlifting and judo. Fire represented ball sports. Tibetan antelope represented track and field. And swallow represented gymnastics.
Fuwa also embody both the landscape and the dreams and aspirations of people from every part of the vast country of China. In their origins and their headpieces, you can see the five elements of nature -- the sea, forest, fire, earth and sky -- all stylistically rendered in ways that represent the deep traditional influences of Chinese folk art and ornamentation. The China Environmental Awareness Programme program, started in 2001, has the Fuwa raising public environmental awareness by spreading clean and green messages.
And their target market is no limited. We have precious metal products, garments, homespun products, toys, cartoons and so on. Like the Five Olympic Rings from which they draw their color and inspiration, Fuwa served as the Official Mascots of Beijing Olympic Games, carrying a message of friendship and peace -- and good wishes from China -- to people all over the world.
Any questions?…...

Disloyalty of Interpreting

...traditional believes. Since the culture and habits are quite different in two countrie , how can we find a complete equality in the other countries ,if not, why cannot keep the original character of such things. But recently many experts in translation and linguistic have focus on this topics, and we have make some development in this field. The translation of Olympic mascots is a good illustration. The former translation by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China is friendliness, however, we find latter it sounds like de friendless in English. That is certainly not our interpretation of the five mascots, but the one-side emphasis make the interpretation neither accepted or understood by inter nor external people. So finally we translate into FUWA , simply a Transliteration of Chinese character. Also it wins the love of both Chinese and international people. From this point of view, we can farther make more appropriate translation of such Chinese words that has obvious nation-features through transliteration, and we have also achieve something in it , we now have jiaozi, tanghulu , Putonghua, ect , which are also accepted by the foreigners. And as far as I know, if we use transliteration in a good way , we can spread the culture of china and also improve the national-confidence, meanwhile we communicate with the other country. To reach this goal , the interpreter has more responsibilities than any other people, because it is they that have more and direct access to......

...2006 outcomes, the girls cannot become teachers or get employment that will significantly empower them and alleviate their poverty. Thus, project outcome is rated moderately satisfactory.” [emphasis added]. Objective 1: Enrolment and Retention Parity The FSP has been undeniably successful in increasing secondary enrolment and retention, as a host of studies has documented. One of the best-researched studies on the impact of the FSP on enrolment used the fact that the program was introduced at different times in different areas and to all class cohorts. This study focused on one project with more easily available and accessible data. The authors found that the FSP increased girls’ enrolment ‘substantially’ (Shahidur R. Khandker, Pitt, & Fuwa, 2003). Other FSP projects report similar increases suggesting that it is reasonable to generalize the findings across the whole Program. Most recent figures indicate that girls’ enrolment – primary and secondary – is now about equal to that of boys. UNDP (2005) figures show that girls’ net primary enrolment had risen to nearly 86% by 2002/3 compared to 48% in 1996 (BANBEIS, 1999). It gives the secondary Gross Enrolment Rate as 45% for boys and 47% for girls. If the figures are correct, Bangladesh has succeeded in providing equal access to girls at primary and secondary level; many writers in part attribute the increase in girls’ enrolment in primary school to the FSP (Muzaffer Ahmed & Ahmed, 2002; Chowdhury, Choudhury, & Nath, 1999;......

Poverty in Phillipine

...channels by which income growth, together with a host of other factors, influenced poverty reduction. In his model, these other factors affect the speed of poverty reduction directly by changing the distribution of a given economic pie, or indirectly by expanding the economic pie for each person in society (i.e., by way of economic growth). These factors can be grouped into two types: 1. Initial economic and institutional conditions (in or around 1988) – initial mean provincial per capita income, initial distribution of per capita income, initial human capital stock, political ‘dynasty’ (as proxy for political competitiveness), and ethno-linguistic fragmentation. 3 Poverty estimates are those used in Balisacan (2007) and Balisacan and Fuwa (2004). These are not comparable with official data released by the National Statistical Coordination Board. As shown in Balisacan (2003b), the official estimates are not quite an accurate guide to ascertaining changes in absolute poverty over time or across regions—or provinces, or between rural and urban areas—of the country. 8 Why Does Poverty Persist in the Philippines?

Political Economy in the Developmental State: Comparison on Comprehensive Agrarian Reform in the Philippines to Select Latin American and East Asian Countries

...did other countries experience who also employed land reforms if they experienced similar dilemmas. We argue that deeply seated class structures have inevitably played a role in this development policy outcome, particularly elite groups and landlords who have established themselves in the political arena. The purpose of this paper does not discount the manner by which agrarian reform became a policy but rather that its continued failure is a result of the level of elite democracy has persisted in the triangulation of the policy process. Under the rich literature that has investigated CARP, we follow the same major stumbling block to such sweeping policy reforms (Putzel, 1992, Rivera, 1994, Riedinger 1995, Hutchcroft 1998, Balisacan & Fuwa, 2004). Using the comparative approach of many-country studies situated in the developmental state, we look to dissect the Philippine agrarian reform experience and compare it to similar instances undertaken by Latin America (with attention to Brazil and Mexico), while deviating it to its regional counterparts in South Korea and Taiwan which have gone on to become Newly Industrialized Countries (NICs). On the contrary, this study will not find its basis on the similarity of agrarian reform policies between the countries. Instead, we will focus modes of comparison on the basis of how their respective reforms became a policy, how such a policy was identified as a problem, and the political interplays by which such reforms either failed......
