BEIJING Authentic Tyler Seguin Jersey , Dec. 27 (Xinhua) -- China has launched a program to help Spring Festival become celebrated by people across the world.


Various Chinese cultural activities, including gala performances, movie shows, temple fairs, and square celebrations, will be held overseas around the Spring Festival of 2017, according to a statement Tuesday.


The program, jointly launched by the Publicity Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council Information Office, will feature themes such as harmony, peace and happiness.


It also aims to expand the market share of cultural products related to the Spring Festival abroad by enhancing cooperation with public relations companies, intermediaries, theaters, and ticket companies.


Efforts will be made to integrate brick-and-mortar and online marketing channels both at home and abroad.


Spring Festival, the Chinese Lunar New Year, is the most prominent holiday in China. It falls on Jan. 28 next year.

Namibia is synonymous with parched desert landscapes, enigmatic shipwrecks and vast swathes of wilderness, but nestled among these breathtaking vistas are a few lesser known gems. Mundulea is one of these, a once in a lifetime experience which should not be missed by all truly discerning travellers to Namibia.

Kate & Bruno Nebe established Mundulea in 2001 after purchasing a group of farms in the Otavi Mountains. After dismantling the existing boundaries and erecting secure game fencing around the perimeter, they began to swell the existing wildlife numbers with a carefully chosen variety of indigenous species. The aim has been to establish a reserve rich in Namibia's native flora and fauna, a place as close to its natural heritage as possible, where visitors can experience a true step back into the lush wilderness of this ancient region.

Mundulea is located in the Karstveldt region south east of Otavi. The underlying rock formations are principally made up of Dolomite, Lime and Marble and are known for their fathomless cave systems, deep gorges and underground lakes. In addition the Nature Reserve boasts examples from three important fossil groups; Pre-Cambrian, Jurassic and some more recent from around 13 million years ago.

So in-between tracking rhino on foot, scouring the horizon for leopard or bird watching around a waterhole, you could also perhaps venture a little way into the virtually unexplored cave systems of Mundulea with your guide, and experience a taste of the pioneer spirit!

Mundulea is now host to many species including Kudu, Oryx, Springbok, Warthog, Ostrich, Wildebeest, Hartebeest and more notably good numbers of Eland, Giraffe, Tessebe, Black Faced Impala, Dik Dik and Duiker. Predators include Leopard, Cheetah, Brown Hyena and Spotted Hyena as well as Lynx, Serval and other small cats.

In addition Mundulea is part of the Black Rhino Custodianship Programme run by Namibia's Ministry of Wildlife, Environment and Tourism. The first bull arrived in October 2006, he is the last of his sub-species (Diceros bicornis chobiensis), and he was joined in February 2007 by three females and one young bull (Diceros bicornis bicornis).

The rhinos must be settling into their new home well as the first baby was born around three months ago! Hopefully there will be a good number more to come.

Early in 2008 Bruno completed a new semi-permanent camp at Mundulea which allows visitors space to relax in a little more luxury whilst enjoying this unique environment. Each of the four Meru style tents has its own innovative en-suite bathroom and shaded veranda, all the furniture was made on site using natural materials with meticulous attention to detail.

The camp nestles amongst mature trees and the structures have been perfectly designed to blend into the surrounding environment. A central boma area and kitchen provide the setting for delicious dinners cooked over an open fire.

From this base camp, visitors are accompanied on relaxed, expertly guided walking trails to discover the intricacies of the eco-systems which support Namibia's vast biodiversity of animals, birds, plants, trees, reptiles and insects. Each walk is geared to the individual guest's interests and abilities, and each day ends with a chance to share experiences under the star strewn skies of Namibia's ancient landscape.

The parents of an American aid worker captured last year while delivering relief supplies to refugees in Syria said Sunday they are "heartbroken" by his death at the hands of Islamic State militants but "incredibly proud" of his compassion and humanitarian work.


Ed and Paula Kassig of Indianapolis said in a statement that their 26-year-old son, Peter Kassig, "lost his life as a result of his love for the Syrian people and his desire to ease their suffering."


"We will work every day to keep his legacy alive as best we can," they said.


Kassig was captured last year in eastern Syria while delivering relief supplies to refugees of Syria's civil war. The Indianapolis man, a former U.S. Army Ranger who founded a relief organization, converted to Islam while in captivity and took the first name Abdul-Rahman.


The White House confirmed Kassig's death Sunday after the Islamic State group released a video showing that Kassig had been beheaded. The video also showed the beheadings of about a dozen men identified as Syrian military officers and pilots.


President Barack Obama called Kassig's killing "an act of pure evil" and said the Islamic State group "revels in the slaughter of innocents, including Muslims, and is bent only on sowing death and destruction."
