Post leave the water running
While the Brazilians mourned their failure at this year's FIFA World Cup Air Jordan 1 Retro Womens For Sale , many Chinese found themselves in a similar position, lamenting the final results of the 2014 European Mahjong Championship. Ending last week in France, the two Chinese delegations to the championship only ranked 37th and 39th among the 51 participating teams.

Although it's difficult to pinpoint when this game began, mahjong is widely recognized as having its roots in ancient China. While the tile game has evolved over the centuries, its popularity has never faded. A fun leisure time activity that can be played almost anytime and anywhere Air Jordan 1 Retro Womens , people can be seen playing mahjong everywhere from community parks to playing while floating around in a swimming pool.

However, with the disastrous defeat of the Chinese delegation, netizens are wondering how one of Chinese people's favorite activities has become a source of shame.

Skill not luck

First, popular as it is among Chinese, most people only regard mahjong as a game rather than a sport Jordan 1 Retro Womens For Sale , the latter of which actually has different rules compared to the more relaxed version played by most people.

According to a report on sport.qq, these strict rules help reduce the chances that someone can win out of sheer luck.

"The biggest difference between the sport and the game is that the former is more complicated to play... It looks like a simple math question, but is in fact a complicated matter of probability. It is a test of a person's intelligence and mentality," Hu Zhiwei, winner of the 2008 Mahjong Super Cup China District Finals in Guangzhou Jordan 1 Retro Womens , Guangdong Province, told sport.qq.

"The Chinese players who took part in the championship do not represent the highest level of professional mahjong in China," Sheng Qi, chief director of the United Association of Chinese Mahjong Sport and one of the rule makers for professional mahjong in China, told the Global Times.

The 80-year-old sports mahjong advocate explained that the delegations that joined the championship were made up of Chinese players who were only fans of mahjong and that they went to France out of personal interest rather than having been selected through national competitions. To his knowledge no players who currently hold high ranks in China actually took part in the event.

Raising awareness

While the game is extremely popular in China Air Jordan 1 Retro Mens For Sale , very few people are aware of mahjong as a sport. In his column for news.ifeng, columnist Zhang Hansi joked that there were several ways to bring more attention to the sport of mahjong: having "mahjong girls" who dance during breaks and bringing in commercial sponsors, who could then have their brands put on the back sides of the tiles.

Joking aside, he pointed out that without high audience interest, mahjong as a sport will continue to suffer as there will be little money for awards which in turn means little incentive for quality players to participate in tournaments.

However a more key problem in getting sports mahjong off the ground is that unlike other sports which hold a high reputation with the general public Air Jordan 1 Retro Mens , mahjong faces the major obstacle of being associated with gambling.

While some schools outside of China hold mahjong classes for even children, Sheng said that many government authorities in China treat the game as a source of gambling and are opposed to promoting it.

"Actually soccer also has a close link with gambling as well," Sheng noted, stating that the idea of equating mahjong and gambling is a misconception among people that needs to be changed.

Due to growing amounts of pollution, our ecosystem is currently vulnerable. One of our most valuable planetary resources is being wasted without barely anyone noticing. For each man or women on our planet Jordan 1 Retro Mens For Sale , just under 4 liters of water is squandered everyday. And because their are billions of people on the planet, this means that we are using up no less than 2 billions gallons of water each and every day.

This article will discuss numerous ways that we can both identify and reduce this wastage. We are going to check out a couple small things you’re able to do every day to conserve water.

One of the ways men and women are totally wasting water is when they are brushing their teeth. To begin with this may seem silly but if many people did this, it would quickly add up to be a big saving. However this relates to billions of people which is why it is an issue. Nearly all people today brush their teeth twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. The truth is, statistics show that while brushing Jordan 1 Retro Mens , 90% of people today leave the water running. Whenever a person brushes their teeth twice a day for 3 to 5 minutes per session, they are letting at least 2 gallons of water every day go right into the sewage system or their septic tank. If we do the math again, billions of people doing this would account for huge water loss globally. This can easily all be saved simply by turning off the water while you are brushing.

One more thing that people do to waste water is actually their washing. Naturally, your laundry still must be done. However many people will simply take a couple pairs of pants two or three shirts and run a full wash through. The wash and rinse cycle uses on average about 30 gallons of water, no matter the number of items are being washed. Try to remember to change the water level on the washer to match your requirements for the specific load that you are running. Instead of running the laundry once you have grubby clothes Air Jordan 1 Release 2017 , why not wait until you have enough to put on a whole load.

Lastly, when washing your motor vehicle you need to try and save as much water as possible. While I recognize the value of having a clean car and it can actually help your car last longer which in turn helps the planet, you don’t need to waste so much water. Research shows that as much as 100 gallons of water c.
