ANGOLA 2013 | University Students Invited to Research in Bicuar Game Reserve

Lubango — The administrator of the Bicuar National Park, in southern Huila province, César Santos, Saturday in Luanda, invited university students from the 6th academic region to conduct research in the reserve, in order to elevate their academic and scientific knowledge.

Speaking to ANGOP, in Luanda, said César Santos said it is relevant that students, mainly those in the specialties of Biology, Geography and Environment, conduct research in the Bicuar National Park, as it is a rich area in terms of scientific resources.

Cesar Santos said that the administration of the Bicuar National Park is open to any such a request, adding research can enrich the students' levels and help develop the reserves and ensure the discovery of new species of animal and flora.

The administrator stated that the park went through a few problems with the research and location of some species that disappeared during the armed conflict, a situation he said students might help resolve.

On the other hand, Cesar Santos said that under a programme of assistance to the natural reserve, the Government has invested about three billion Kwanzas, used in the rehabilitation of the administrative building, in the park and research.

"We managed to implement the programme of putting salt in main sites where the animals feed and drink water, and this is causing a return of some species, such as the red buffalo, red antelope and others," stressed he administrator.

Regarding the situation of poaching, the official said it is has not reached worrying proportions, as the place has been reinforced with 150 guards, administrative workers, transportation and communication equipment.

With a land area of 7,900 square meters, Bicuar National Park was created in 1938 and is the home to such species as elephants, red antelope, hyenas, lions and others.

Movie ticket sales have gone crazy in the city of Panjin.

Compared with two years ago, in one of the fourth-tier city's "cineplexes" there are now nearlyas many tickets being sold in a month as there were in a whole year.

Annual box-office revenues in the city — in the southwest of Northeast China's Liaoning province — surged to 25.6 million yuan ($4.17 million) in 2012 from 2.65 million yuan the yearearlier, a year-on-year growth of 867 percent, according to statistics from EntGroup Consulting, a Beijing-based entertainment industry consultancy.

In April alone, the city's CJ CGV cineplex, owned by a South Korean theater operator, sold twomillion yuan's worth of tickets to 50,000 customers, said Guo Jinsheng, the manager of thetheater, which opened in January.

"And that performance is growing month-on-month," added Guo.

Panjin is now one of the fastest-growing third- and fourth-tier cities in terms ofbox-office receipts, and others cities enjoying similar growth include Langfangin Hebei province, and Yueyang in Hunan province.

Ticket sales are also gaining momentum in small cities in a countrythat is now the world's second-largest film market.

After the United States, China accounted for 8 percent of the globalfilm market with annual box-office receipts of $2.7 billion last year,according to figures released in March by the Motion PictureAssociation of America.

By May 12, China's total box-office revenues for the year exceeded8.1 billion yuan, up 39 percent.

THE RICHEST| Gold rises on weaker Chinese economic data

CHICAGO -- Gold futures on the COMEX division of the New York Mercantile Exchange roseslightly on weaker-than- expected Chinese economic data Monday. 

The most active gold contract for August delivery rose $3, or 0.22 percent, to settle at $1,386per ounce.

Chinese government released a series of economic data over the weekend: China's producerprice index fell 2.9 percent in May from a year earlier, quicker than a 2.6 percent decline inApril year on year; total social financing dropped by about a third to 1.19 trillion yuan ($194billion=) in May from April; total property investment in China in the first five months of this yearrose 20.6 percent to 2.68 trillion yuan, compared with a 21.1 percent rise in the first fourmonths; fixed-asset investment in non-rural areas rose 20.4 percent in the January-May periodyear on year, slower than the 20.6 percent increase recorded in the January-April period;value-added industrial output in China rose 9.2 percent in May year on year, slowing slightlyfrom a 9.3 percent increase in April; and exports rose 1 percent in May from a year earlier,much slower than April's increase of 14.7 percent. Disappointing Chinese economic figureswere nevertheless positive to gold prices.

Gold market is still waiting for directions, which will hinge heavily on when the US FederalReserve will scale down its bond- purchase program.

Though the underlying physical demand for gold remains strong, gold prices have registered a17-percent decline so far this year.

WORLD CUP 2014 | Fees stay same for Uganda-Angola

Fans will pay the same as they did for Uganda against Liberia when Angola come to town for another World Cup weekend this Saturday.

Many will welcome the news as it had been feared that Fufa would ride on Uganda’s 1-0 victory over Liberia at the weekend to rake more money from increased rates.

“The entry charges remain the same (UGX 12,000 and 33,000) and tickets will go on market Wednesday morning from the same selling points used last week,” reads in part a statement released by Fufa publicist Rogers Milindwa on Monday.

“Fufa extends gratitude to the fans for showing up in bigger numbers (about 25,000 in a 42,202 seater) at Namboole last Saturday.

“We believe, the results would perhaps not have been the same without their presence and support.”

Uganda are second in Group J on five points, one behind Senegal. The Cranes must beat Angola and Senegal away to progress to the final round of the 2014 World Cup qualification.

Elsewhere, the Liberian national team will stay in Kampala till Wednesday, according to Mulindwa, although, no further explanation was given to that effect.

However, match officials of the game between Uganda and Liberia have all returned home.
