BEIJING, April 24 (Xinhua) -- China's first female astronaut has claimed that women have unique advantages in working in space.

""Women's inherent patience, sensitivity and sympathy mean they are more likely to avoid conflicts, especially in cramped conditions of most spacecraft,"" said Liu Yang on Sunday, China's first ""Space Day.""

The government recently designated April 24, the anniversary of the country's first satellite launch 46 years ago, as an annual occasion for raising awareness of Chinese achievements in space. Liu's comments come as China is preparing to send astronauts into space for far longer periods, with a manned Chinese space station due to begin operations around 2020.

""Women will play a more important role when spending a long time in space,"" Liu said.


China was the third country to send a female citizen into space using its own technology. Liu's flight is part of a remarkable turnaround in Chinese attitudes to women.

They occupied a lowly status in thousands of years of feudal society. As recently as 100 years ago, many Chinese women were made to endure the pain of foot binding to please men and to share their husband with other women.

It was not until the establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949, and Chairman Mao Zedong's remark that ""Women hold up half the sky,"" that things began to change.

Today, Liu believes that women are ready to ""hold up half of space"" and that she was ""in the right place at the right time"" to take advantage of Chinese women being allowed to assume a bigger role.

Born in Henan Province, Liu joined the army in 1997. She became a veteran pilot before being recruited as a prospective astronaut in May 2010.


Liu blasted into space on board Shenzhou-9 in June 2012. Her presence in the spaceship required a set of adjustments to China's space program to meet the needs of a woman.

""New spacesuits, underwear and sport suits had to be tailored for female astronauts. Excrement devices are also different for us too,"" Liu said.

To date, more than 50 women have traveled into space. ""The world is made of two genders; space permits no exceptions. Space exploration would be incomplete without the participation of female astronauts, and China should never be left behind in sending women to space,"" Liu said.

In 2013, Wang Yaping became the second Chinese woman in space. She gave an inspirational lecture to students on Earth via a live video feed.


Following Wang's video, Liu is at pains to point out to any Chinese girls wanting to become astronauts how tough the preparation is. No exceptions can be made for women.

""Space will never favor you just because you are a woman,"" Liu said. ""Thus there's no difference between men and women in the training process.""

Two year's training has made Liu a strong person: ""Every session aims to stretch you to your limit, and I grew stronger every time I challenged myself.""

Asked what she has been doing since June 2012, Liu said she has never stopped training, ""in order to be always ready for the next mission.""

In particular, Liu is eyeing a place on the Chinese space station. She is desperate to be on board what she described as ""China's grand villa in space."" Enditem


For those of us that have a business or deal with the public Tyus Bowser Ravens Jersey , one thing is certain and that is that we will have to be forced in dealing with theft or vandalism. There are many different kinds of measures that we take to deal with this such as an alarm system or perhaps video surveillance, but in order to really be effective in catching a thief, there are a few basic simple rules that need to be observed.
This generally applies to business owners, however when you own and operate a business there is one big misconception. The misconception is that property theft is generally conducted by someone outside of your business organization. This is very far from the truth. One thing that is certain is that if you are having a problem with items disappearing, weather it is money from the cash register or if it is items located in or outside the office or store, it is from someone that personally knows you or works for you.
It is a very sad fact that those around you are stealing from you, but that is the cold hard fact. It is a more uncommon event in that someone just walks off the street and steals from you. Just consider that in the United States estimates show that internal theft amounts to $40 Billion in losses each year. If you are having problems with company theft, go ahead and just accept the fact that it is either done or assisted by one of your trusted employees. If your employees are not stealing from you in one way or another I would personally consider your organization to be very unique.

This poses the question of how do you catch them in the act? There are several ways you can do this, however there is a more effective means of accomplishing this. Simply installing security cameras alone will not accomplish this for you. If you and your employees can see the security cameras, then you will likely prevent theft and will not catch the original persons responsible. If you want to prevent internal theft, this will be good enough. However if you want to catch the person(s) responsible here are a few essential rules and steps to take that will get you on your way.

Rule #1: You cannot tell anyone what you are up to in your efforts to catch someone in the act. It’s just like the old saying goes, ” If two people know, then it’s not a secret”. This is especially true when you are dealing with theft. You cannot, under any circumstance let your employees, managers or associated know that you are going to attempt to catch the perpetra. Wholesale Jerseys   Wholesale Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys Online   Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping   Wholesale Jerseys China Free Shipping   Wholesale Hockey Jerseys   Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Free Shipping   Wholesale NCAA Baseball Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Baseball Jerseys
