Shanghai's iconic Oriental Pearl TV Tower turned blue yesterday to mark the World Autism Awareness Day.

Blue is the color to raise awareness of autism and a global Light It Up Blue campaign was launched yesterday. Blue ribbons were also seen on the city taxis’ rearview mirrors.

Shanghai also established a Blue Ocean Club , the nation’s first database facility for people with autism. The club will arrange lectures and support for families with autistic patients and conduct research on screening, intervention and treatment for people with the disorder.

Awareness and care for children with autism are way short in China.

“China lacks professionals on autism diagnosis and treatment and there is no big-scale study on the disorder,” said Dr Wang Yi, vice president of the Children’s Hospital of Fudan University.

“There is rarely early screening and intervention on children with autism in the country. There is an urgent need to set up a network to enhance professional training and give support and direction to patients and their families.”

Autism is a disorder of neural development that impairs social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication and repetitive or stereotyped behavior. The diagnostic criteria requires that symptoms become apparent before a child is three years old.

“Children with autism have no interest in people, they won’t smile, won’t communicate and don’t make eye contact with you Air Jordan 6 Gatorade Pre Order ,” Dr Xu Xiu, the director of child health department at Children’s Hospital of Fudan University, told Shanghai Daily yesterday. “Some may even lose words all their lives.”

“My 10-year-old girl was always absent-minded when she looked at people. When she was one year old, she could not learn to speak and walk,” a woman, surnamed Wang Air Jordan 6 Gatorade For Sale , said.

According to American Center for Disease Control and Prevention last year, there is one autistic child in every 88 American children. The annual medical cost on autism is US$5 billion in the US.

In Shanghai, there are an estimated 10,000 children with autism.

The city was the first in the country to offer rehabilitation and education to disabled children including those with autism that covered pre-school and mandatory education.


XINING, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- Every time the patrollers pass the Sonamdaje monument on Kunlun Mountain, they stop to pay their respects the Tibetan way Air Jordan 6s Gatorade , offering hadas and barley wine.

Sonamdaje, a former official in Qinghai Province of northwest China, was shot to death by poachers when patrolling the Hoh Xil region in 1994.

With an average altitude of over 4,600 meters, the inhospitable Hoh Xil is an ideal habitat for endangered Tibetan antelopes and other wildlife such as Tibetan gazelles and wild yaks. The region was added to the world heritage list last month.

The area was beset by poachers in the 1980s, who hunted Tibetan antelopes for their hide Air Jordan 6 Retro Gatorade , which was made into expensive shahtoosh shawls. Each shawl, priced as high as 50,000 U.S. dollars, was made at the expense of the lives of three to five antelopes.

The antelope population declined sharply from 200,000 to 20,000 due to the illegal hunting.

Local people began riding yaks to patrol the mountain in 1992. When the Hoh Xil nature reserve was set up in 1996 Air Jordan 6 Gatorade , a 16-person patrol team was set up. Currently, over 70 people are employed by the nature reserve to patrol the mountains.

The patrols are dangerous. Besides the steep mountainous roads and dangerous wetland and marsh, the patrollers also have to face the threats of guns and wild animals.

Zhao Xinlu has been patrolling the area for 20 years. He recalls catching a gang of poachers all armed with rifles.

"We were not as well-equipped as they were, and the seized rifles were all loaded," he said.

A dozen years ago, Zhao and his team seized over 500 antelope skins Air Jordan 6 Like Mike Gatorade , but the smell of blood soon attracted a pack of wolves.

"They followed us to our vehicles and surrounded us at night," he said. "We fired shots into the air to scare them away."

Thanks to intensive protection efforts, the antelope population is now back over 60,000.

"Ten years ago, tourists asked me what the antelopes look like. Now they ask whether an antelope is male or female," said patroller Lodro Cering Air Jordan 6 Like Mike Pre Order , while feeding a baby antelope with a bottle of milk.

In the protection station where Lodro works, patrollers are taking care of seven baby antelopes.

Starting every June, when it is time for antelopes to give birth and migrate, patrollers save a number of antelopes who are either ill or orphaned. Since 2001, they have saved over 500 antelopes.

Besides professional patrollers, thousands of local villagers are employed by the local government as part-time rangers to clean up garbage and protect local wildlife.

Herder Dawa is a ranger in Zhiduo and is paid 1 Air Jordan 6 Like Mike For Sale ,800 yuan (270 U.S. dollars) each month.

"Although we were asked to keep less cattle to help the environment on the grassland, our income has increased thanks to the new job. It's great to see the grassland turning cleaner and the wildlife population growing," Dawa said.

Hoh Xil is facing new challenges posed by climate change, said Budro, head of Hoh Xil nature reserve administrative bureau.

"The thawing icebergs have led to overflowing local lakes, forming new lakes totalling about 200 square km Air Jordan 6 Like Mike 2017 ," Budro said.

Some tourists illegally pass through the core area of Hoh Xil with the help of navigation equipment and high quality vehicles. Scientific knowledge about the ecology of Hoh Xil is still lacking, according to Budro.

The successful inclusion into the world heritage list has raised the standards for Hoh Xil protection, and a .
