|BEIJING Cheap Miami Dolphins Jersey , July 13 (Xinhua) -- China's central government has allocated funds for drought relief in the north of the country as a heat wave continues to scorch many areas.
A total of 145 million yuan (21.39 million U.S. dollars) has been transferred to local authorities for measures including ensuring the supply of drinking water for people and livestock, according to the Ministry of Finance (MOF).
There have been serious droughts in areas including Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Liaoning and Jilin provinces, and continued hot weather will likely exacerbate the situation.
The National Meteorological Center Thursday issued an orange alert for heat wave, as temperatures rose above 35 degrees centigrade in various areas, including Beijing and parts of Hebei and Henan provinces.
A number of these areas could see temperatures surpass 40 degrees Cheap Minnesota Vikings Jersey , according to the meteorological agency.
The MOF said it will closely monitor the situation and allocate more funds if necessary.
China has a four-tier color-coded weather warning system, with red the most severe, followed by orange, yellow and blue.

It is staggering to think that elephants sought higher ground immediately before the Tsunami hit Asian shores on December 26th 2004, while no advanced technology existed in the form of an early warning detection system that could prevent the loss of human life ... or so said a spokesperson for the Ministry of Tourism of Sri Lanka. I can't say for sure. I wasn't there. I was safe and dry in Varese, Italy at the time Cheap New England Patriots Jersey , and a long way from Pound Ridge, New York, from where I hail.
I have been honored to be one of the many panelists at the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism Global Summit in Pattaya, Thailand, an organizational conference dedicated to exploring the ways in which tourism can and does promote peace. I was one of the only westerners there and was surrounded by Ministers, Members of Parliament and others dedicated to the concept of sustainable tourism and peaceful tourism.
While I spoke about the strategies that western tourism enterprise has utilized to confront terrorism and natural disaster in the U.S. and Europe over the past few years Cheap New Orleans Saints Jersey , my fellow panelists from Sri Lanka, Uganda, Cambodia and South Africa, to name a few, discussed the ways in which terrorism, internal armed-conflict Cheap New York Jets Jersey , war and poverty have affected their lives and those of their families and countrymen. Among a group of co-panelists at breakfast one morning, I was the only person to not have held the status of refugee at some point in my life. To the extent I have changed houses or homeland, it has been entirely through choice and a quest for new experience and I know nothing of fleeing for my life or the lives of my children. My colleagues from across the sea, in contrast, have been counting the years, and in some instances Cheap Oakland Raiders Jersey , the months, days, hours and minutes of peace.
It is amazing to me that the more I am exposed to through travel and interaction with peoples of other countries, the more ignorant I feel. Like most people, I know that people living in other parts of the world do not share the same standard of living that I do, but I did not know that the single greatest killer of children world-wide is unclean water. I did not know that my colleagues in Jordan get water once a week Cheap Philadelphia Eagles Jersey , but that my female Jordanian colleagues have virtually no "glass ceiling" that prevents them from advancing professionally. I didn't know that there are still cold-storage containers on the shores of the Andaman coast in Thailand that contain the bodies of unidentified loved ones after the wave hit and I didn't know that police boats and huge fishing trawlers still lie kilometers from the sea where they lie against buildings, but otherwise upright, as if they are simply dry-docked in the wrong place at the wrong time.
What is sustainable tourism and how can we in the western world assist our brothers and sisters in less developed areas to face problems that affect fragile economies so dependent upon tourism? And how can we, as tourists, promote peace when we travel? So many of us, as individuals as well as public and private enterprise Cheap Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey , donate money. Is that the way to assure that families and businesses post traumatic natural or terrorism-related episode continue to survive? It appears, based on what I have seen and heard here, that despite our display of compassion, exemplified by our overwhelming generosity, that this may not be the answer. Houses built with Tsunami donations, for example Cheap San Francisco 49ers Jersey , but which failed to consult the cultural, physical and spiritual needs of the people, lay vacant. Boats built with Tsunami donations lay idle on the shores awaiting beurocratic clearance before they can be used by Thai fisherman. Tsunami money to Sri Lanka remains unutilized because the Sri Lankan administrative offices charged with administering the money, are located in an area of the country which is governed by a para-military entity not recognized by the U.S. or the United Kingdom.
The best answer seems to be exemplified in the request I heard time and again from His Excellency Akel Biltaji, Special Advisor to His Majesty King Abdullah II of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordon, His Excellency.
