(Image:Sha and Jialing.JPG) *Transportation to and from Shapingba has improved over the years. There are buses that run directly to most other districts including Jiangbei, Yuzhong and Jiulongpo.Three highways, Chengdu-Chongqing (Chengyu Gaosugonglu), Chongqing-Changshou (Yuchang Gaosugonglu) and Shangqiao-Jieshi (Shangjie Gaosugonglu) come across here. Within only half an hour, you would be possible to reach the Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport. Along the "Old Road" it is possible to reach Beibei, the farthest of the original nine districts within about one and a half hours. In addition, Chongqing's West Railway Station is located in Shapingba. Though departures and arrivals are somewhat limited at this station, it is quite useful for trips to nearby destations such as Guiyang or Dazhou (Dazhou, Sichuan). *China National Highway 212 #'''The Southern Qian group''' - the largest of the three - from the Qianxinan Bouyei and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, which is partially intelligible with the Guibian and Guibei Zhuang dialects (Zhuang languages#Varieties). This vernacular is spoken in the counties of Wangmo, Ceheng, Luodian, Dushan, Libo, Duyun, Pingtang, Zhenfeng, Anlong, Xingren, and Xinyi. #'''The Central Qian group''' - next most spoken of the three - which is spread throughout Qianxinan Buyei and Miao Autonomous Prefecture and the suburbs of Guiyang, and is partially intelligible with the Southern Qian dialects (it is very similar to the Zhuang dialects of northern Guangxi). This vernacular is spoken in the counties of Longli, Guiding, Qingzhen, Pingba, Kaiyang, Guiyang, and Anshun. #'''The Western Qian dialects''' - the least spoken of the three - which is spoken in the counties of Zhenning, Guanling, Ziyun, Qinglong (Qinglong County, Guizhou), Pu'an, Liuzhi, Panxian (Pan County), Shuicheng, Bijie, and Weining (Weining Yi Hui and Miao Autonomous County). The western dialects show more unique features than the other two groups. Some western dialects have aspirated stops, which is an uncommon feature in northern Tai languages (Snyder 2008). Old Modern Bouyei In November 1956, a scientific conference was held in Guiyang to discuss the creation and implementation of a Latin-based alphabet (Latin script) for Bouyei.

The monarchists would thus normally intervene in other countries to stop democratic movements taking control and forming democratic governments, which were seen by monarchists as being both dangerous and unpredictable.

Venezuela claims that the Essequibo is the true border between it and Guyana, claiming all territory west of it . The boundary was set between Venezuela and Guyana's then colonial power, Great Britain in 1899 through an arbitration proceeding. A letter written by Venezuela's legal counsel, named partner Severo Mallet-Prevost of New York law firm Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle alleged that the Russian and British judges on the tribunal had acted improperly and granted the lion's share of the dispute territory to Britain due to a political deal between Russia and the United Kingdom. As a result, Guyana accepted the claim by Venezuela in 1966 in Ginebra, Switzerland to the disputed territory. He was the FMLN's candidate in El Salvador's 2004 presidential election (Salvadoran presidential election, 2004), held on March 21, running on a leftist (left-wing politics) platform that called for a friendly relationship with the United States (according to his own pamphlet for the campaign), renegotiation of free trade treaties and a closer relationship with socialist (socialism)-oriented countries in Latin America, including Cuba, Venezuela and Brazil. Opponents accused Handal of exploiting anti-American sentiment (anti-Americanism) while FMLN supporters accused the United States of corrupting the electoral process, because several high ranking U.S. officials stated that American relations with El Salvador would be seriously threatened if Handal won the elections. Handal was defeated by the candidate of the ruling conservative (conservatism) ARENA (Nationalist Republican Alliance) party, Antonio Saca, who was also of Palestinian descent, by a margin of 58% to 36%. The election saw a turnout of 70% at the polls.

Indonesia

. In the past, the island was at the centre of a territorial dispute between Malaysia and Indonesia. The matter was brought for adjudication before the International Court of Justice and, at the end of 2002, the Court awarded the island along with the island of Sipadan to Malaysia, on the basis of the "effective occupation" displayed by the latter's predecessor (Malaysia's former colonial power, Great Britain) and the absence of any other superior title. The Philippines had applied to intervene in the proceedings on the basis of its claim to Northern Borneo, but its request was turned down by the Court early in 2001.

In 1989 he combined his work as MP with a position as professor at the University of Amsterdam, where he occupied the ''Joop den Uyl chair'', created by the scientific foundation of the PvdA. Although he was originally asked to become Minister of Defence, he returned to the post of development cooperation in the third Lubbers cabinet (Netherlands cabinet Lubbers-3) in 1989 (Dutch general election, 1989). During his period as Minister for Development Cooperation he sought to combine economic and social development, with environmental protection. As Minister for Development Cooperation he again became deputy governor of the World Bank. In 1992 his criticism of Indonesian government's record on human rights (Human rights in Indonesia), caused the Indonesian government to refuse development aid from the Netherlands ever since.

After the 1994 elections (Dutch general election, 1994) he remained Minister for Development Cooperation, now in the first Kok cabinet (First cabinet of Wim Kok). Controversy In 2003, Nike (Nike, Inc.) bought Converse for around $305 million. Michael McCarthy, “Nike laces up Converse deal”, n.d., http: www.usatoday.com money industries retail 2003-07-09-nike-converse_x.htm. While Converse dominated the U.S. sneaker market from the 1920s until the 1970s, it began to struggle due to competition and lack of funds. In the years following, Converse filed bankruptcy multiple times and fell into further debt and eventually sold to Nike. Chuck Taylor All Stars as well as Converse's other shoes began to be manufactured in foreign countries like China, Vietnam and Indonesia. Longtime Converse fans were against the change and some even stopped wearing the shoes. Nike’s manufacturing took place in Asia and many people took a stand against the sweatshop manufacturing of the shoes. Many also feared that Nike would change the look and status of All Stars and over-commercialize the shoes. The culture jamming group Adbusters started selling a Fairtrade shoe made from Hemp and recycled rubber called the Black Spot. Nike has not changed the look or advertising of Converse since buying in 2003, but controversy over Nike’s ties to Converse still exist.
