|NAIROBI Cheap Justin Evans Jersey , April 21 (Xinhua) -- Chinese aid being channeled to Kenya will go a long way to enhance Sino-Kenya ties, a Chinese diplomat said on Friday.
Guo Ce, Economic and Commercial Counsellor at the Chinese Embassy in Kenya, said Beijing has a long history of ties with Africa with its foreign aid to the continent having begun in 1956 before most of the countries attained independence.
"In Kenya alone, China has financed nearly 100 projects through grants, interest-free loans and concessional loans to support infrastructure, health Cheap O. J. Howard Jersey , education, agriculture as well as humanitarian assistance," Guo said in a commentary published in a local daily, the Daily Nation.
"Therefore, the Chinese aid is part of the continuation of the cooperation borne out of the long-standing relations between Kenya and China," he added.
Guo said China's foreign aid is based on the Eight Principles for Economic Aid and Technical Assistance that were unveiled in 1964.
However, it was not until 2004 after decades of sustained economic growth that China was able to increase its foreign aid Cheap Lavonte David Jersey , he added.
Guo said Chinese aid to Kenya conforms to the general idea that such assistance should be in accordance with Kenya's national priorities.
"So we support the goals and flagship projects in the national development agenda, Vision 2030 as well as the Second Medium Term Plan," he added.
He said the Chinese government, moved by the plight of the Kenyans affected by the ongoing drought, decided to donate approximately 22 million U.S. dollars worth of foods stuffs.
"The 21,336 tonnes will in the next few months arrive at the Mombasa Port to bail out for one month the 1.4 million affected by the drought," Guo said.
In 2011 when Kenya suffered a drought Cheap Doug Martin Jersey , China also donated 20 million dollars worth of emergency humanitarian food aid. The Asian nation has in the past four years drilled 20 boreholes in Western and Eastern Kenya.
"Nearly 20,000 people are already drawing water for their domestic use and livestock," Guo noted. In the environmental protection and climate change front, China has also been a good partner for Kenya.
"China has worked with the Kenya Wildlife Service and the Kenya Meteorological Department to protect Kenya's wildlife, combat poaching, strengthen climate prediction as well as tackle climate change," the diplomat said.
In addition Cheap Gerald McCoy Jersey , from the 1980s to the 1990s, China helped Kenya build the Moi International Sports Centre in Nairobi, the largest stadium in East Africa, with an interest-free loan.
In the area of cooperation in human resource development and education, Guo said China has expanded its training program for Kenyan officials and technicians.
"In 2015 alone, the number of trainees rose to 600, which is the second largest in Africa Cheap DeSean Jackson Jersey ," he said.
WHEN Zhan Wenlian died, her husband and son didn’t consider a normal burial. Instead, they had her body frozen, hoping technology would someday return her to them.
Zhan, 49, died from lung cancer on May 8. Two minutes after she was declared dead at Shandong University’s Qilu Hospital, scientists and doctors injected various chemicals into her body in an attempt to reduce blood clotting and brain damage.
Then her body was transferred to a laboratory at Shandong Yinfeng Life Sciences Research Institute Cheap Mike Evans Jersey , where her body temperature was lowered and her blood replaced with a mixture of anti-freeze and organ-preserving chemicals.
The temperature of her body was further lowered before she was wrapped in a “sleeping bag” and put in a metal capsule. It is being stored in a liquid nitrogen container at a temperature of minus 196 degrees Celsius.
“The device will monitor the temperature and volume changes of the liquid nitrogen. Approximately every 10 days, staff will add liquid nitrogen,” said Zang Chuanbao, director of the institute’s cryo-medicine research center.

‘Pressed the pause button’
“I thought she was just lazy and fell asleep. She just pressed the pause button on her life,” said Gui Junmin, Zhan’s husband.
The Jinan-based research institute was established by Yinfeng Biological Group in 2015. Its fields include gene engineering Cheap Jameis Winston Jersey , stem cell technology, human cell and organ storage and resurrection.
“Theoretically, her metabolism and cellular activity are stagnated. There is no issue with keeping her body like this for centuries. Perhaps, one day when technology advances, she can be resurrected,” said Zang.
The institute extracted stem cells from Zhan’s blood, which could potentially be beneficial for her revival or for her family members.
Zhan is the first Chinese national to have her entire body cryogenically frozen. In 2015 Cheap Mike Alstott Jersey , Chinese science fiction editor Du Hong, 61, died of pancreatic cancer and had her head cryogenically frozen and stored at the headquarters of Alcor Life Extension Foundation in the United States.
American scientist James Bedford became the first cryogenically frozen human in 1967.
Around 300 individuals have had either their whole body, head or brain frozen in liquid nitrogen.
There are only a handful of facilities around the world dedicated to cryo-preservation, such as US-based Alcor and KrioRus in Russia.
“I have peace of mind knowing that no matter what happens in the future... I am signed up and there is that possibility I could wake up in the future,” Alcor member Dr Kathleen Cotter commented on the company’s website.
However, such an option is not without controversy.
“The procedure has been done Wholesale Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys , but it is too early to call it successful,” said Ouyang Xilin, a doctor at First Affiliated Hospita.
