HOUSTON Nike Vapormax CS Scontate , March 17 (Xinhua) -- The Spaniards who in the 1500s brought livestock competitions to what became part of South America, Mexico and the western United States could never have imagined that one day in 2015, their work and cultural festivities would be honored during the world's largest rodeo.
More than 155,000 people - 26,406 more visitors than last year - turned out at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo's Go Tejano Day on Sunday, a day set aside in the March 3-22 rodeo to honor Hispanic heritage, which includes the concept of the rodeo itself.
Linda Alonzo-Saenz Nike VaporMax Laceless Scontate , 57, an executive member of the Rodeo's Go Tejano Day Committee, said the creation of the special day to encourage people of Hispanic culture to attend the Houston rodeo has proven to be a success in celebrating the heritage of Texas.
"Tejano is translation of Texas in Spanish and Go Tejano Day started in order to get more involvement from the Hispanic community, just as the rodeo started as a Spanish tradition," Alonzo-Saenz said. "Spanish got here and brought longhorn and other cattle - and what would be more obvious than to blend with the native Western culture already here (Native Americans) and then adding all the diverse cultures that now make up Texas."
The Go Tejano Day Committee honors not just Hispanic people, but all the people who support the events that make up the rodeo, including agricultural and scholarship events.
The idea of having a single day to commemorate Hispanic heritage is a misnomer Nike VaporMax 97 Uomo Scontate , she said, since the Go Tejano Day Committee works all year long, staging events to help raise funds for student scholarships
"In October, we have the fashion show and dance. In February, a scholarship gala," Alonzo-Saenz said. "The Go Tejano Food booth runs during the 20 days of the rodeo, just like a restaurant...Our main goal is to support the students with scholarships. Last year www.airvapormax97.it , we gave away 18,000 (U.S. dollars) in scholarships."
Go Tejano Day festivities also include live entertainment featuring popular recording artists, and the Fiesta Charr, a colorful exhibition of traditional Mexican folk dance, music and horseback riding.
There are two other special days at the rodeo to honor Texas heritage. They include Go Texan Day, which is held before the rodeo even begins. During that day, the rodeo encourages schools Nike VaporMax 97 Scontate Italia , businesses, organizations and clubs to dress in Western clothes and help build pride in Texas and Western heritage.
The other special day is Black Heritage Day, which honors African American cowboy tradition and was held on March 6 this year. Day-long festivities included live entertainment, school bands, choirs and dance teams, and historical displays around the grounds.
FRANKFURT, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Chinese companies play a leading role in world electric mobility Nike Air VaporMax 97 Scontate , Matthias Zentgraf, regional chief of China's major lithium battery supplier CATL, told Xinhua at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA).
"Electric mobility is one of the key topics of the IAA show. Every OEM and every company is talking about electric driving," said Zengraf. "And in this area, Chinese companies are in a leading position."
He explained that China started developing electric cars "pretty much earlier" than other countries and China is the largest sales market for electric cars.
CATL, headquartered in southern China's Fujian Province, for example Nike VaporMax 97 Scontate , has a 20-year history in producing batteries. According to Zentgraf, CATL is now the third largest supplier of electric mobility batteries with a global market share of more than 20 percent.
BYD, another Chinese electric mobility company, is the second largest batteries producer.
Zentgraf said that CATL is the first Chinese batteries company that supplies to the global industry chain, whose customers include German major carmakers like Volkswagen and BMW. CATL not only delivers batteries to them but also develops technology with them.
"Our innovation ability is very high," Zentgraf talked about CATL's competitive advantages. "We are very fast with the development of technology" thanks to a R&D team of more than 1,000 PhDs and masters of science in China.
In his opinion Off White x Nike Air Max 97 Nere Scontate , the batteries industry depends on the speed of innovation. Companies must response fast to the new demand coming along with the new trend happening in the automobile industry.
He said, CATL is developing technologies to increase electric driving range and shorten the charging time, both of which are pursued by its international peers.
For now, batteries produced by CATL can last 400 kilometers on one charge. The charging time can be as short as 15 minutes with the new products, which are very competitive world-widely.
Instead of focus on Chinese market before, CATL is planning to build a new plant in Europe to meet the rising demand of the continent. "Last year, there's significant change in automobile industry of Europe Uomo Nike Air Max 97 Retro Rosse Scontate , shifting from conventional engines to electric ones," Zentgraf said.
He noted that the percentage of electric cars in production in Europe will increase sharply to roughly 25 percent in 2025. "It's the general trend and will be only a matter of time (to shift to electric engines)."
