LANZHOU Cheap Men's Nike Air VaporMax Plus Triple White , Jan. 1 (Xinhua) -- Lanzhou, capital of northwest China's Gansu Province, on Wednesday implemented a tough smoking ban in specified public places aimed at combating "indoor haze harm."

The legislation clearly specifies "non-smoking" indoor areas, including medical institutions, schools, government office buildings, public dining places Cheap Men's Nike Air Vapormax Plus Black Red , and public transport carriers.

It also clarifies the legal responsibilities of individuals, managers and tobacco sellers in these places.

"The legislation empowers the manager of a non-smoking place to order people smoking indoors to go outside," said Zhang Fushou, director with the legislative affairs commission of Lanzhou Municipal People's Congress Committee.

Managers and staff in these public places can complain to supervision authorities if they fail to discourage smokers, who could be fined from 50 to 200 yuan (about 8.25 to 33.02 U.S. dollars).

Managers of such places could also receive a warning or economic penalty if they do not fulfill their responsibilities in discouraging indoor smoking. The penalty ceiling is 10,000 yuan.

Lanzhou's smoking ban is the toughest among related rules and regulations in China's western regions, said Yang Jie Cheap AH8143-600 Men's Nike Air Max Plus 97 Racer Pink , a tobacco control officer with the Chinese Center for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC).

The ban puts the city on the same level as first-tier cities in smoking controls and features smoking bans in government buildings and public transport carriers, Yang said.

The Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council issued a circular in late December to ask officials to "take the lead" in adhering to smoking bans in public spaces.

Officials are not allowed to smoke in schools, hospitals, sports venues, public transport vehicles, or any other venues where smoking is banned, the circular notes.

Chinese people are well aware of the dangers of outdoor haze Cheap Men's Nike Air Max Plus OG White Sky Blue , but in fact, indoor haze is more hazardous, said Gan Quan, a senior project officer with the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease.

In a 35-square-meter room, the density of PM2.5 surges to 800 micrograms per cubic meter after one cigarette is lit indoors, said Gan, quoting an experiment conducted by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC). The PM2.5 readings soar to 1 Cheap 903827-700 Men's Nike Air Max Plus Metallic Gold ,000 micrograms per cubic meter after two cigarettes, and 1,800 micrograms per cubic meter after three cigarettes, said Gan.

"Staff are exposed to about a 30 percent higher risk of lung cancer if their colleagues smoke indoors in workplaces."

Xie Wei, an official with the Lanzhou Health Bureau and the city's tobacco control office, said that the public places listed as non-smoking in the legislation are the worst-hit areas for secondhand smoke.

Smoke-free laws for public places are the most effective way to protect public health according to international experience, he said.

The Lanzhou tobacco control office is busy training smoking control inspectors and conducting public education on smoking controls.

As the world's largest cigarette producer and consumer Cheap en's Nike Air Max Plus Sunset Black Blue , China has over 300 million smokers and at least 740 million nonsmokers whose health is frequently put at risk by secondhand smoke.

By the end of 2013, nine cities in China had implemented smoking bans in public places. Starting on Jan. 1, 2014, more cities, including Lanzhou, Shenzhen, and Tangshan Cheap Nike Air VaporMax Mens , also implemented similar rules and regulations.

China's Legislative Affairs Office of the State Council listed the smoking ban regulation in its draft plan in 2013, marking progress for a legislative process on the national-level, said Yang.

PARIS, May 22 (Xinhua) -- French Open defending champion Maria Sharapova told press here on Friday that she's happy to see other players get married or have a baby but wanted to stay focus on tennis as it comes to herself.

The world No. 2, who came to Paris with a clay title won in Rome last week, has collected all four Grand Slam trophies since she claimed the maiden victory in 2004 in Wimbledon as a 17-year- old, including twice in Roland Garros Cheap Nike Air VaporMax Womens , in 2012 and 2014.

Talking about on-court life and off-court happiness, the 28- year-old Russian said: "We are athletes and we are here to do our jobs. We sometimes forget that tennis is quite a short period of our lives, and especially for women.

"Maybe men last a little bit longer. For a woman that wants to have children and a family, it can be quite tough to prolong your career," she said.

Just 40 days ago, world No. 3 men's singles player Andy Murray got married with his long-time girlfriend, and the top seed here Cheap Nike Air VaporMax 97 , Novak Djokovic became a dad last fall as his wife gave birth to a baby.

"It's been great to see so many more family men on the tour. That's been nice," commented Sharapova. "But I'm not sure I like to use the word balance, because when you try to balance things out you're only just good at a couple of things."

"I want to be great at one thing. I know it's sometimes impossible to be great at ten things. If I try to be great at ten other sports maybe I would be so-so.

"I have chosen a sport that I could evolve in and be great at. I have been very committed to my sport and trying to be the best I can be at it. When I have the time to enjoy my life and to be happy away from the court," she said.

Sharapova starts her defending campaign against Estonia's Kaia Kanepi in the French Open, which gets underway on Sunday.
