NANNING Cheap Brook Lopez Jersey , June 21 (Xinhua) -- The controversial Lychee and Dog Meat Festival has gone ahead in south China Wednesday despite rumors that authorities would impose a ban this year.

The festival, which is held every summer solstice, the longest day in the Chinese lunar calendar, puts Yulin, a city with a population of 600,000 in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region Cheap Tyler Ennis Jersey , into the international media spotlight every June.

Previous reports said that local authorities would ban the dog meat festival, but Yulin's publicity department denied the alleged ban. They said that they had never issued a ban because the "festival" is not organized by the local government, it is a folk custom.

Dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Yulin residents ate dog meat with lychees and rice wine at summer solstice, believing the practice would strengthen their physique.

The festival has been bombarded by animal rights activists and dog lovers for years, however Cheap Luol Deng Jersey , this year is quieter than usual.

The bloody scenes of butchering dogs in the road have disappeared, and some stores and restaurants have covered the character "dog" on their lists or menus.

The city's Dongkou market is where most of the dog meat trade takes place. Near the market, Xinhua reporters saw chained or caged dogs, while dog meat was hung in booths in the market.

"Price of the dog meat is higher than last year," said a seller surnamed Zhao, adding that half a kilo sells at about 27 yuan (around four U.S. dollars).

The director of an animal rights organization named "Best Volunteer Center Cheap Josh Hart Jersey ," who gave her surname as Xiao, told Xinhua that the supply of dog meat this year was lower than before, which led to the rise of price.

"I know it is a local custom, but I hope our protests can push the local government to increase efforts to discourage the eating of dog meat," said Xiao, who comes to the festival every year to protest.

Although the celebratory air has been somewhat diluted this year Cheap Corey Brewer Jersey , the festival was still triggered a huge backlash among animal welfare groups and pet owners.

An animal rights activist with the screen name "Dongsheng" told Xinhua that he and other dog lovers blocked a truck loaded with dogs from leaving Baiyun District in Guangzhou, the capital of south China's Guangdong Province, Monday.

He said the truck looked suspicious as it was carrying more than 1,000 dogs. Many were breeds usually kept as pets such as German shepherds and Pekingese. The driver did not say where the dogs were from, Dongsheng said.

"We suspected that the truck was destined for Yulin to supply the festival market, and that many of the dogs were stolen pet dogs Cheap Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Jersey ," he said.

Guangdong police and animal quarantine departments have helped the activists find shelters for the dogs.

Sellers in Yulin said dog meat is usually purchased from rural areas in central China's Hubei Province, east China's Anhui Province and northwest China's Shaanxi Province, as there are not enough dog farms in Yulin to meet the demand.

Dongsheng said the custom of eating dog is not only offensive to dog lovers, but also encourages the stealing of pet dogs.

"I know it came from local customs, but the tradition does not match with the current level of social development and should be discarded. Dogs are not for eating," he said.

When you are dating online Cheap Dennis Rodman Jersey , you don?t get to meet people face to face. Here comes your profile to fill the void, which ?introduces? you to people who are most likely to share your interests.
Typically online dating profile is just like your mother who never gets tired talking about just how wonderful you are. Let?s be honest, just about everyone could use such cheerleading! That is why it is important to have a profile that showcases you in the best possible light.

Tips to create that perfect profile:

? Grab attention! Write a catchy headline.Your profile headline is your chance to quickly tell other members exactly who you are, what you're looking for, or why you'd be great for them.

Your headline is the first thing people read about you. If the entry of a profile is catchy and attention catching, you have just promoted yourself to the head of the queue.

? Honesty is the Best Policy! Being honest goes a long way in making your profile successful. Like if you smoke Cheap Jamaal Wilkes Jersey , say so. If you mention yourself a non smoker, things might turn sour when in the longer run your sweetheart gets to know otherwise.

? Be yourself. Your online dating profile should give the reader a glimpse into your personality. Don?t imitate others. You might attract people initially but in the long run you will lose because your credibility will be lost.

? Use your current photograph. People want to know how you look like now. If you use your older photograph it would seem that you are hiding something.

? Write for the reader. If you go through other profiles aka competition, you will find people using ?I? more often than not, such as: I like to swim or I live to cook etc.

Be different, be innovative. Compare ?I like to cook.? to ?Do you like your man to cook for you?? or compare 'I love going to the beach for a swim.' to 'Do you enjoy going to the beach for a walk and a swim?'

Getting the drift? Involve the reader, talk to himher individually. So instead of writing ?I Cheap Jerry West Jersey ,? rephrase the sentence and use the word ?you.?

? Use correct spelling and grammar. I know this one would make many of you groan, but if someone can?t understand what you are seeking in a date, they aren?t going to respond.

So when editing or making up your profile, pretend you are a copywriter. You have been given this work, and you have to excel to be paid for it. Write on word processing program and run the spell check.
