|The Zika outbreak in Brazil hasn't dampened Chinese enthusiasm for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in the South American country Yankees Aaron Hicks Jersey , according to an authorized ticket reseller in China.
Since tickets for the Rio Games went on sale in China on January 19, nearly 1,000 tickets have been booked, and tickets for events where Chinese athletes are favored sell best, such as gymnastics, diving, table tennis and badminton, Chinese tour operator Caissa Touristic told the Global Times on Sunday.
"Although the Chinese economy has slowed down Yankees Tyler Clippard Jersey , preparation for the Rio Games has drawn criticism, and the Zika virus has spread in Brazil, Chinese continue to show great interest in going to the Games," Caissa replied in an e-mail.
However, some people said the Zika virus would have an impact. A 20-year-old college student from Zhuzhou, Hunan Province said she remains undecided. She applied as a volunteer at the Rio Games in August 2014, and in December 2015 was informed she was -accepted. "But since the Zika -virus broke out in Brazil, my parents advised me not to go Yankees Joe Girardi Jersey ," she said. "I am also worried about Zika."
But to others, the cost of going to Brazil, instead of Zika, is the obstacle. "Zika is a small problem compared to the trip's cost," a fan surnamed Zhang in Tianjin told the Global Times, adding that the cost would equal his annual income.
Caissa have also launched tour packages, such as 10-day trips to Brazil, including -tickets to the table tennis final Yankees Austin Romine Jersey , which costs about 60,000 yuan ($9,170).
"Inquiries about tickets and packages are increasing," said Caissa, which helps provide ticketing and hospitality services for the Games.
Caissa said the tickets most in demand by the Chinese are those for the opening -ceremony, men's swimming, women's volleyball, diving and badminton.
In an effort to attract Chinese spectators Yankees Jacoby Ellsbury Jersey , Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff on Friday opened an account on Sina -Weibo, a Chinese microblogging website.
In a 96-second video, she invited Chinese to visit Brazil during the Olympic Games (August 5-21) and Paralympic Games (September 7-1.
Official figures show 7.5 million tickets are available for the Rio Olympic Games, 70 percent of which have been earmarked for Brazil residents. Non-residents can only buy tickets at agents in their home country or region.
The first round of ticket sales in China will end on March 31, with the next round yet to be decided, Caissa said. Tickets to the opening and closing ceremonies remain unavailable in China.
Solar panel maker SunPower Corp said it would partner with Apple Inc to build two solar power projects in China's Sichuan province with total capacity of 40 megawatts.
The projects, when complete, will be co-owned by Apple and Sichuan Shengtian New Energy Development Co Ltd Yankees Masahiro Tanaka Jersey , SunPower's project development joint venture.
Completion of the projects, which are expected to provide up to 80 million kilowatt-hours per year, is expected in the fourth quarter of 2015, SunPower said.
Shares of SunPower, which is majority owned by French energy
giant Total SA, were up 1.4 percent at $33.85 in early trading on the Nasdaq on Thursday.
China set a higher-than-expected target for solar power installations for 2015 last month as it seeks to boost renewable energy use.
China said it aims to install 17.8 gigawatts (GW) of solar power capacity this year, up nearly 20 percent from the original goal of 15 GW, with nearly 70 percent from the 10.52 GW of solar generation capacity China installed last year.
Apple Yankees Didi Gregorius Jersey , which uses renewable energy to power its data centers, said in February it would buy about $850 million of power from First Solar Inc's California solar farm to cut its energy bill.
SunPower and longstanding rival First Solar last month announced a limited partnership, 8point3 Energy Partners LP, to jointly own some assets. The companies also filed for a proposed initial public offering of the YieldCo.
The move is expected to generate stable cash flows for the companies that have been expanding their power plant businesses.
SYDNEY, April 24 (Xinhua) -- Hundreds of thousands of Victorians are struggling to keep up with their mortgage repayments, a report has found.
The report by Digital Finance Analytics (DFA), published by News Limited on Monday, found that 300 Yankees Matt Holliday Jersey ,000 Victorians could barely afford their monthly mortgage payments.
DFA said that if interest rates were to rise by 2 percent, the number of people struggling would double to 600,000.
Even an interest rate rise of 0.5 percent would add an extra 50,000 homeowners to the list of people who are struggling.
The report comes as both Melbourne and Sydney are embroiled in a housing crisis with the median house price in Melbourne having more than doubled in the past 10 years.
Australia's biggest banks took interest rates into their own hands in March, making out of cycle changes to the rates they offered that were not in line by recommendations of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA).
Martin North, the principal of DFA, said he was certain that interest rates would continue to climb over the next 18 months.
"We have a lot of households today who are on the edge," North told News Limited on Monday.
"They're managing to make their repayments Yankees Starlin Castro Jersey , but they're spending less at the shops, cutting back on other things, putting more on credit cards and hunkering down."
He said that slow wage growth combined with household debt and the increase in the cost of living could throw Australia into financial crisis.
"We almost need a housing correction because I don't think regulators can solve the equation," North said. "There's a crash that we have to have."
