NANJING Nike Air Max 95 Womens UK , China, Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- International Cycling Union (UCI) president Brian Cookson on Sunday gave all thumbs up to the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympics which was unveiled in east China's Nanjing on Saturday.

Cookson said the Opening Ceremony was impressive and the Games has been well organised.

""I was not at Singapore for the inaugural Games, but I'm surprised how big the event is here. The people in Nanjing have done an excellent job. Singapore was the first Youth Olympics and Nanjing Games is the second and it seems to me that this one is even bigger. I'm sure Nanjing edition is even more successful than Singapore was.""

Nanjing is part of Cookson's Asian trip which included Japan and South Korea stops, and in the capital city of Jiangsu Province, Cookson is due to meet with heads of Rio Olympics Organising Committee Nike Air Max 95 Premium UK , people of International Olympic Committee and head of the Chinese Cycling Association.

Cookson took the Youth Olympics as a must step towards the world's top arena, and the young athletes are offered great chances to compete and learn.

""Competing at the Youth Olympics is a once-in-a-life experience. The athletes should not consider it as the highest level of their achievements but one step halfway towards the senior Olympics,"" he said.

""It's an important experience to come to the multi-sport Games, you can learn from different cultures, meet people from around the world and understand the different ways of looking at the world Nike Air Max 95 OG UK , so I think it's a very useful experience for the young athletes.""

The cycling sport has been plummeting downwards after former Tour de France seven-times winner Lance Armstrong was found guilty of using drug and Armstrong's allegation that former UCI heads were involved in cover-up of doping use further ravaged the sport. Cookson expected the young to learn a lesson and choose the right track.

""There are always temptation for athletes including the young and older ones as well. But I think you have young athletes here learning about the Olympic spirit of fair play and integrity, show them the right way to do. That's what they can benefit from an experience like this.""

Asked about the future of the Youth Olympics, Cookson said: ""I think it's good to get the young athletes from different parts of the world together to take part in sport in international environment and practise the Olympic values of fair play, hard work and dedication. That's got to be a good thing for the young people.""


Move will facilitate free movement of labor

China plans to scrap its controversial temporary residence permit in a move that analysts believe is a transition toward a more relaxed household registration system, according to a public security reform plan approved by central authorities and released Sunday.

The abolition of the permit is part of a comprehensive public security reform that also vows to improve law enforcement responsibility and boost the welfare of the police force.

It is said to be the first comprehensive public security reform launched by the central government with vice public security minister Huang Ming saying that the reform aims at "addressing the fundamental and deep-rooted structural problems faced by the police force."

Permanent residence permits will replace the much-criticized temporary residence permit Nike Air Max 95 Mens UK , according to the plan approved by the authorities, reported the Xinhua News Agency.

Observers hailed the move as progress toward optimizing China's labor market by allowing young workers, whose numbers are dwindling, to migrate freely across the country.

The permit has led to instability and unsettlement and the temporary residence registry system is no longer suitable for today's situation, Xinhua said.

The hukou Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Jacquard UK , or household registration system, was introduced in the 1950s and ties access to social benefits and services to residential status.

Temporary residence permits are issued to a person who moves to a city or other areas for longer than a stipulated period, which varies according to region. The permits are essential documents when the person has to apply for a passport or travel permit to Hong Kong and Macao.

Many cities in China have already ended the temporary permit system, but Beijing currently still uses it.

The level of public services residents can access will depend on the duration of residence, according to the public security reform plan.

"[Removing temporary residence permits] is a transition toward a more relaxed hukou system … The current system has provided convenience for the police in managing migrant workers. It has also been a source of income for the department. But it has not brought as much benefit to migrant workers nike air max 95 ultra essential uk , as even with the permit, they can't access social programs," Hu Xingdou, a social science professor at the Beijing Institute of Technology, told the Global Times.

Peng Xizhe www.airmax95ultrauk.com , dean of the School of Social Development and Public Policy at Fudan University, told the Global Times that in the next two decades, China will face a labor shortage. Implementing the new system of permanent residence could optimize the labor force by allowing workers to freely migrate across the country.

Peng believes to achieve maximum impact from the reform, it needs to be supported by other sectors, including reforms to social security nike air max 95 ultra uk , healthcare and to the national college entrance examination system. Currently, these benefits are unavailable to temporary urban residents, who must take on the extra expense of returning home if, for example, they need to be hospitalized.

Public security reform was listed as a focus by central authorities last year as part of China's rule of law drive.

The plan pledges to improve the police's management system as well as their remuneration package to "a level above local officials and slightly lower that military officers."
