SYDNEY Homme ECCO Classic Moc 2.0 Loafer Marine Soldes , April 13 (Xinhua) -- Australia's 19th annual Fashion Week has opened and on Monday it was getting as much coverage for protests as the designers displaying their wares.

On Sunday night the opening show by local designer Kym Ellery was extremely well received at the Carriageworks venue, a giant Victorian-era former train maintenance center near Sydney's CBD.

But just as Ellery did a catwalk walk of honor, an angry man leapt onto the stage saying "this is a disgrace" and screaming about the loud music which accompanied the show.

He wasn't an invited guest Homme ECCO Classic Moc 2.0 Noir Soldes , instead an angry resident who lives near the venue in the once working class area of Eveleigh which has become gentrified.

Whereas the original inhabitants of this area put up with 24 hour a day noise from the maintenance sheds, plus the rumbling of trains on around six railway lines, the new middle to upper middle class ones want peace on their terms.

Ellery fled backstage when the middle-aged man leapt on the catwalk before security bundled him away.

On Monday Homme Bottes ECCO Jamestown Mid Noir Soldes , fashion designers, writers, international department store buyers and media were greeted by peaceful protesters from animal rights PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

They were covered in body paint and held signs saying "animal prints Homme Bottes ECCO Ian High COCOA Marron Soldes , not animal skins" and "animals are not ours to wear".

They were protesting because owners of the Australian Fashion Week had declined their request to ban fur from the designer shows.

WINDHOEK, May 19 (Xinhua) -- Little did Catherine Muthoga know her decision to attend pre-competition of "Chinese Bridge" was going to get her one day to visit Beijing.

Muthoga's confidence and charisma saw her and a classmate walk away with air tickets to go and compete at the semi-finals and finals in Beijing. The student enrolled at the Confucius Institute (CI) at the University of Namibia told Xinhua in a interview that she study Chinese because of her interest for different cultures.

Catherine has been studying Chinese for just a few months but the expertise and knowledge she demonstrated at the competition was extraordinary.

"I have only been studying Chinese for a couple of months, I am very surprised and honoured Homme Bottes ECCO Ian Chukka Noir Soldes ," she said.

The Chinese embassy in Namibia in collaboration with the CI held on Monday a pre-competition of "Chinese Bridge" which was launched in 2002, and this annual event has been held 14 times around the world and attracted more than 1,000 college students from over 80 countries.

For the competition Homme Bottes ECCO Holton Noir Soldes , students were required to read out a poem to show their Chinese language proficiency, answer quizzes so as to showcase their knowledge about China and either sing, dance or play an instrument.

The judges were chosen according to their level of understanding of the Chinese language and culture.

The competition comprised of 10 students who had managed to excel above the rest this year.

Muthoga said learning languages is something that has become very crucial in this new world where different cultures intertwine and businesses cross borders.

Different learning institutions around Africa and the world have made it part of their curriculum and have introduced different languages.

As no exception Homme Bottes ECCO Soft 7 High Top Noir Soldes , the University of Namibia embarked on such a programme with establishment of a CI in it which has witnessed more and more students learning Chinese.

The institute was established in July 2013 and has an enrolment of about 46 students now.

The Chinese director at the institute Zhang Sufang says that Namibians are showing a keen interest in Chinese culture as the numbers of students enrolling is growing gradually.

The Vice chancellor at the university Lazarus Hangula said that the expertise shown by the students shows the significance of the programme.

He also emphasized how it has become an important platform for international college students to learn the Chinese language and help them understand more about China.

Other students who did not manage to win said that they decided to study Chinese as a language so that one day they can teach Chinese in Namibia.
