BEIJING, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- China Thursday increased the maximum speed of bullet trains on the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway to 350 kph, making it once again the world's fastest train service some six years after it was reduced to 300 kph.

The route will be operated by China's Fuxing, or Rejuvenation, bullet trains.

The speed increase will cut the journey between Beijing and Shanghai to 4 hours and 28 minutes.

A Fuxing train departed Beijing at 9 a.m. on Thursday, beginning the formal 350kph service.

"These trains are so popular that the tickets for today's services sold out a week ago," Huang Xin, an official with China Railway Corporation (CR), said Thursday.

Connecting the Chinese capital in the north with the country's major financial and trade hub in the south, the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway is one of the busiest in the country, carrying more than 100 million passengers a year.

"The Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway was built to the world's highest standards, and the Fuxing trains were designed to run at a maximum speed of 350 kph. Operating the Fuxing on this route at a speed of 350 kph is without question in terms of safety, reliability and comfort," said Lu Dongfu, CR general manager.

The Fuxing trains are a substantial upgrade on the previous bullet trains, known as Hexie, or Harmony. Entirely designed and manufactured in China, the Fuxing is more spacious and energy-efficient, with a longer service life and better reliability.

The ticket price for the service will not be raised for the time being, said He Huawu, from the Chinese Academy of Engineering, who is a special technical advisor to CR general manager.

The Fuxing has completed 600,000 kilometers of performance tests and has a designed service life of 30 years, said Yu Hongliang, a mechanic with Beijing Railway Bureau.

It is fitted with more modern features such as power outlets, USB ports and free WiFi.

Compared with the Hexie 380, its power consumption per 100 km is 10 percent less when running at 350 kph, said Zhang Bo from the China Academy of Railway Sciences.

The train also has a sophisticated monitoring system that automatically slows the train in case of emergency or abnormal conditions.

China has the world's longest high-speed rail network, with 22,000 kilometers currently in operation. About one-third of the country's high-speed railways were designed to run at a speed of 350 kph.

Chinese-manufactured high-speed trains have been sold to Indonesia, Russia, Iran and India.

The Fuxing trains can be adapted to various geological and operational situations, including extreme climates, a core competitive strength in the global market, He said.

BEIJING, June 2 (Xinhua) -- Chinese e-hailing company Didi said on Thursday that it wants to raise more than 3.5 billion U.S. dollars after rival Uber announced fresh funding that values the company at over 60 billion dollars.

Didi president Jean Liu told a conference in California that its fundraising is ongoing and that the company is looking for strategic investors similar to Tencent and Alibaba.

Tencent and Alibaba were early backers of two companies that merged to become Didi in February last year, putting an end to a year of bitter competition.

Uber announced this week that it had raised 3.5 billion dollars from the investment arm of the Saudi Arabian government, taking the company's valuation to over 60 billion dollars.

As part of Didi's current funding round, Apple has invested 1 billion dollars into the firm.

English Football and the football pools Published: 22.10.2008 | Author: mpressman | Category: Recreation And Sports

England鈥檚 obsession with 鈥榯he beautiful game鈥?of football dates back 145 years when association football and rugby football went their separate ways. But, although the English can lay claim to inventing the modern version of football, there is evidence that a similar game called Tsu Chu was played as early as three centuries B.C. during the Chinese dynasty of Han.

The Japanese also lay claim to being inventors of the sport, highlighting the game of Kemari, which dates from about AD600 and is still played today. However, although it involves use of the feet and a ball it is no more than a glorified game of 鈥榢eepie-uppie鈥? unlike Tsu Chu where the object of the game was to kick a leather ball through a narrow opening; a definite forerunner of scoring goals.

As far as the modern game is concerned the Football Association was formed in 1863 and instantly became the governing body of the sport in England and Wales, a role that it still occupies today. Although the governance was in place it took another 25 years until a competitive, organised league was formed. The Football League, the oldest in the world, followed in 1888 consisting of only 12 teams drawn from the north and midlands. However, the sport soon captured the nation鈥檚 imagination and soon the league included southern teams and eventually grew to consist of 92 teams, before the formation of the Premier League in 1992 took the top 20 teams, reducing t.
