SHANGHAI Aaron Ramsey Wales Jersey , Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- Complaints over bike-sharing services went up by more than 40 times in 2017, according to a report by Shanghai Consumer Council.

 

The council received 7,978 complaints about bike-sharing services last year, according to the council. Xqchuxing Joe Ledley Jersey , Mobike and OFO were the top three companies facing the complaints.

 

Customers in Shanghai were upset by delays in the return of deposits, abnormal charges and poor customer service.

 

In some cases, costumers did not receive their deposits two or three months after request, while many bike-sharing companies promised refunds within seven days. In other cases Joe Allen Jersey , bike-sharing companies wrongfully charged users due to various systematic problems.

 

"Bike-sharing companies need to focus more on providing high-quality services and stable systems," said Ning Hai, deputy secretary general of the council.

 

More than 20 million shared bikes are now on the streets of Chinese cities, according to a report by the China Academy of Transportation Sciences.

NEW DELHI, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- At least 35 people have been killed after a passenger bus crashed through an old bridge and plunged into a deep canal connected to a river in the eastern Indian state of West Bengal Monday, police said.

 

The accident occurred at Daulatabad in Murshidabad district, some 220 km from the state capital Kolkata.

 

"The bus Aaron Ramsey Jersey , carrying some 50 people, broke through the railing of the bridge and fell into the canal connected to Jalangi river after its driver lost control of the speeding vehicle while swerving to avoid another vehicle," a senior police official said.

 

So far, 35 bodies Cheap Wales Soccer Hats , including those of women and children, have been fished out of waters, including those who got trapped inside the bus, while some injured passengers were admitted to a nearby government hospital Cheap Wales Soccer Hoodies , the official said. "Some six people swam to safety," he added.

 

The bus was going to Malda district from Karimpur in Nadia district via Murshidabad when the accident occurred.

 

Local TV channels showed dramatic footage of the bus being lifted from the canal bed with the help of three hydraulic cranes under the supervision of the National Disaster Management Force personnel, who brought out bodies one after another from inside the bus.

 

Earlier in the day, local police had to charge batons and lobby tear gas shells to control a huge crowd that had gathered around the accident scene and attacked cops with stones alleging that they arrived late. They even set two police vehicles afire.

 

"Some of the survivors told us that the driver was driving at high speed while talking on mobile phone on the bridge. A probe has been ordered into the incident Cheap Wales Soccer Shirts ," the official said.

 

State Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee visited the accident spot. She has condoled the deaths and announced a compensation for the kin of those who had died in the accident.

 

This is the third bus accident in the state in the past two weeks. On Jan. 17, eight people were killed when a bus fell into a canal near Kharagpur in West Midnapore district. And nine people died when another bus fell into a ditch in Murshidabad district three days later.

 

India has one of the highest road fatalities in the world. Road accidents occur mostly due to poor driving or badly maintained roads and vehicles.

 

 

 

TAIYUAN, July 16 (Xinhua) -- An important base for the Chinese army during World War II, Liyu Village, deep in the Taihang Mountains in north China's Shanxi Province, was once best known for a homemade landmine.

 

Villager Wang Laifa, the "King of Landmine," made and laid hundreds of landmines as the plucky village attempted to repel the Japanese invaders. It's a story every Chinese schoolchild knows.

 

Seventy years on and the village is facing another kind of battle: the fight against poverty. Once again, it is all about bangs and flashes and the element of surprise, but this time, it's magic!

 

Village Party head Wang Zhuhong was scratching his head in early 2009, wondering what could be done to bring some money into Liyu, when he saw Taiwan magician Lu Chen on the Chinese New Year gala. Almost no one had heard of Lu at that time, but he became household name overnight.

 

"I had no idea that a stage magician could be so famous and make that much money," said Wang, who there and then came up with the idea of transforming Liyu into China's magic village.

 

BREAD AND CIRCUSES

 

Bread has to be won. It cannot just be conjured out of thin air, and over the past six years, Wang has taken his fellow villagers on an enchanted journey that has filled both their bellies and their purses.

 

From an early age, Wang had been fascinated by street magic shows and circus performers. He had learned a few tricks from TV and by searching on the Internet, but never saw his skills as anything other than fun.

 

Convincing his fellow villagers that his harmless hobby could be a way for them to earn a living was not easy. His idea was strongly opposed by his No. 2, who believed magic shows were "not a decent business" and "embarrassing."

 

"They said the profit from magic shows would be even less than the yield from a small plot," Wang recalled.

 

After a door-to-door visit to all villagers, only two eight-year-old boys agreed to learn from him. While teaching the boys, Wang applied for a spot on a local TV gala, and by the magic of television, Wang and his two tiny tyros became overnight "stars," . Cheap Jerseys China   Cheap Jerseys China   Wholesale Jerseys Online   Wholesale Hoodie   Wholesale NHL Hats   Wholesale Nike NFL Hats   Wholesale MLB Jerseys   Cheap Nike NBA T-Shirts   Cheap Soccer Jerseys China   Cheap NHL Hockey Jerseys
