Chinese pandas celebrating 3rd Lunar New Year at Moscow Zoo******
Two giant pandas from China, Ruyi and Dingding, who have been living at the Moscow Zoo since 2019, will enjoy a "festive atmosphere" while celebrating their third Chinese New Year in Russia.
"Zoo staff will make large cardboard toys in the shape of tigers for the pandas, as well as place spruce and fir trees decorated with ice candies with vegetables and fruits inside," zoo head Svetlana Akulova told Xinhua in a recent interview.
She said it would be possible to watch how the pandas celebrate the Lunar New Year not only in person at the zoo, but also online through a live stream on the zoo's official social networks.
The pandas are very popular among visitors, many of whom are already familiar with the personalities of the Chinese guests, according to Akulova.
"Dingding is pickier and moodier, while Ruyi is like an explorer and can sometimes be a bit of a trouble-maker," she said.
"Our employees already recognize these regular visitors and are always happy to answer their questions. There was even a time when a child brought his soft toy panda and introduced it to Ruyi and Dingding," Akulova said.
"I am glad that the Moscow Zoo has chosen to participate in the international program for giant panda preservation, protection and research," she stressed.
Akulova noted that it was significant how "the cultural values of one country, that are portrayed through national symbols, could be accepted and loved in another," especially the giant pandas, which are "definitely the living embodiment of Chinese culture."
Dortmund fans dream of a farewell present from Haaland******
By Oliver Trust。
BERLIN, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- When it comes to Black and Yellow fans and teammates, there are no doubts that Erling Haaland is football's best striker.。
Considering his performance, there seem no limits for the Norwegian. Record follows after record. Now the 21-year-old as the first player scored 50 goals in his first 50 national league games.。
It's more than a bold guess, local voting around Dortmund would make the blonde spearhead the winner of this year's Ballon d'Or.。
While it most likely won't be the Dortmund attacker awarded as football best this Monday, his current club and its supporters don't mind.。
More than ever, he is seen as a mystic healer, revitalizing a club that has to deal with the disappointment of an early group exit in the Champions League.。
Three days after the setback, the side has come back to life in a miracle-like way. The news of his return after a six-week-long injury break spread like wildfire.。
Fans and players, before drowned in agony, turned into an enthusiastic group. Teammates, fans, and the coaching staff are overwhelmingly pleased by the attacker's earthly contributions.。
In time the Scandinavian forward has changed things from hopeless to promising ahead of the duel against Bayern next weekend. All of a sudden, Dortmund seems to feel the change of fortunes in the air.。
Being kicked out of the Champions League doesn't hurt as much as before. The chance is emerging to outpace the Bavarian rival when it comes to this season's national title.。
Marco Rose called him a phenomenon. "Not having him around affects you as a team. Things turn around with him on the pitch," the Dortmund coach said.。
The club seems to have accepted to lose his goal-machine after this season. Instead, it seems common sense to benefit from his skills as long as possible.。
To win the national title is going to turn the striker into an everlasting hero.。
No surprise that midfielder Julian Brandt called Haaland a game-changer. "He gives us energy," Rose added.。
The clubs' fatal dependency on its forward is seen as a blessing despite and not as a disadvantage. To keep hopes alive, three points on home soil are required upcoming Saturday when Borussia is crossing swords with Bayern.。
The 2020 treble winner having to replace Joshua Kimmich is providing the unexpected opportunity to return to happiness.。
But enjoying a second chance might trigger false feelings. Dortmund only turns into a serious challenger when the wavering team follows in the footsteps of his leader.。
To only rely on Haaland might cause the next depression for the Black and Yellows. As much as the Norwegian is electrifying his entire club, football remains a team sport.。
Haaland's 50 goals (40 left foot, 6 right, and 4 headers) can be a trigger point. If things fail, they at the same time can be a burden. To get the chance to win the national title seems a unique issue. At the same time, it is a done deal that the healer will be leaving after this season.。
The chance won't come again when the healer is gone. Enditem。
