|MADRID， Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- The Spanish press used to call matches between Barcelona and Real Madrid， meetings between the two biggest rivals in World football， the 'Game of the year，' then they called it the 'Game of the decade' and finally the 'Game of the Century' until finally they decided it was easier to call it 'The Classico .'
The two clubs have millions of fanatical fans all around the world: their club shops and stadiums are visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists， and although other Spanish teams also count on international fans， there can be little doubt that Barca and Madrid fly the flag for the Spanish football league， La Liga.
Saturday afternoon sees the first 'Classico' of the season and as well as 99，000 fans in Barcelona's Camp Nou Stadium， the game will be watched by a worldwide TV audience of over 500 million people， making it La Liga's showcase event.
"The Classico isn't just a Spanish phenomenon， neither is the La Liga，" La Liga President Javier Tebas told Xinhua.
Since taking over as La Liga President in 2013， Tebas has worked hard to put Spanish football on a stable financial footing to both increase the credibility of the competition， and to raise its competitiveness.
With Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo， the Classico can boast the best two players in the world. In addition， Neymar， Luis Suarez and Luka Modric will all be on hand to make it the most attractive club game on the planet.
"The Classico is the sporting event between clubs which moves the most people in the world... it attracts more people than the Superbowl，" said Tebas， who added that the game "has to be a standard in our strategy" for exporting La Liga to fans worldwide.
"I think La Liga is a global phenomenon and as such we have to live the Classico as a global phenomenon. In China， in the USA， in South Africa and India， we have to make the Classico a global event，" he explained.
Worldwide TV deals， including one with Chinese network PPTV， means the game can be watched in homes and bars all over the planet (with the exception of the UK， where live games are not allowed to be shown between 14.45-17.00 local time in order to protect attendance at UK domestic games).
However， Tebas explained that La Liga Ambassadors (former players charged with taking the image of the Spanish game all around the world) will be appearing at special events in South Africa， India and China with former Madrid striker Fernando Morientes appearing in Beijing， and former Valencia and Barcelona midfielder Gaizka Mendieta appearing in Shanghai.
"We are working in special events all over the world for that day...and in China we are going to organize two events with our TV partner， one in Shanghai and one in Beijing. There will be Real Madrid fans in Beijing and Barca supporters in Shanghai，" said Tebas.
So this year's Classico will not just be watched on TV screens， for many fans it will be an all-round experience of Spanish football's best， one that can only raise awareness and support for La Liga.
JINAN Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Shoes White UK , Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- A total of 74 Chinese nationals arrested for telecom fraud were sent back to China from Cambodia on Thursday under the escort of Chinese police.
The suspects were involved in more than 60 major transnational telecom frauds involving over 7 million yuan (1.1 million U.S. dollars).
They were captured in Phnom Penh, Pailin and Sihanoukville.
A big amount of bank cards, computers and mobile phones were also seized during the raids.
Nov Men's Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Shoes Black White UK , 2011, Vancouver, British Columbia – As some residents of Vancouver are suddenly discovering Men's Nike Air VaporMax Plus Black White UK , inheriting a property from a deceased relative may put them into a situation that could soon have them filing for a bankruptcy.
A resident from Vancouver, BC, who identifies himself only as Gale nike air max 90 uk sale , has been poverty-stricken for the past ten years. When he inherited a property that happened to have an underground storage tank – typically used for storing furnace oil, he couldn’t afford to remove it, and so he left it there.
Unfortunately for many local residents like Gale cheap nike air max 90 uk , the laws state that an underground storage tank (UST) has to be taken out if it leaks, and the surrounding soil cleaned up.
But the new by-laws are being adopted across many different municipalities in Greater Vancouver, and are now getting homeowners to test the soil for contamination in order to put the house up for sale. If oil is found nike air max 95 uk , the owner of the property has a legal obligation to remediate the soli at his or her expense, at the cost of (up to) $125,000 in some cases.
Unfortunately most underground tanks in the area nike air max 2019 uk , typically installed over 50 years ago, are starting to leak due to their age. Living on the West Coast means that it’s virtually impossible to prevent the lighter-than-water oil from being pushed up to the surface, and once visible homeowners like Gale may be forced by law to clean up the soil.
There are still municipalities in the area that have no mandatory soil testing. To date West Vancouver cheap nike air max 2019 , New West and Surrey are the only places to have changed their by-laws.
For residents living outside these areas it is still legal to remove the tank and list the property without risking the need for prohibitively expensive soil clean-up.
But as the time goes and more municipalities choose to change their laws to benefit the environment, more homeowners may find themselves pressed financially beyond their means. People with limited funds to remediate the soil are unable to sell the house to pay the tank removal and soil remediation fees in a first place. As more leaks become obvious they are eventually forced into an action that ultimately leaves them filing for bankruptcy.
BC is not the only place with laws that require mandatory testing. In fact many U.
