Zhao Xiaogang
New Year's in China was plagued by an old problem. As millions celebrated 2017 Cheap Nike VaporMax Plus Womens , many northern areas were enveloped in thick smog that is expected to persist through the week.

But a chest surgeon in Shanghai caught attention on social media for trying to clear the air on a very toxic subject - with poetry.

Zhao Xiaogang, deputy chief of thoracic surgery at Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital of Tongji University, points out a link between smog and lung cancer in a poem "I Long to be King."

Originally published in English for the October 2016 of US medical journal CHEST, a translated version circulated online that struck a chord among many dealing with an immediate issue.

"While deaths from lung cancer is an increasing trend across the world Cheap Nike VaporMax Plus Mens , it is explosive in China," said Zhao.

The poem reads from the perspective of ground glass opacity (GGO) - a non-specific finding on CT scans that indicates fluid in the lungs.

Though thick with medical jargon, the poem packs some powerful prose.

In particular, the line "I've been nourished on the delicious mist and haze Cheap Nike Air VaporMax Plus ," a reference to the connection between GGO and smog.

Even more powerful is the poem's challenge to previous statements from ranking experts that downplay the link between smog and cancer.

"The intense rise in lung cancer … is intimately related to smog," said Zhao.

According to statistics from 2012, 569,000 people in China die from lung cancer annually.

The poem was met with mixed reviews Cheap Nike VaporMax Off White , with some expressing concern over the potential backlash for Zhao's poetic indictment against smog.

Zhao's comments parallel those of Chai Jing, the former CCTV reporter behind the 2015 independent documentary on smogUnder the Dome.

Leicester City coach Claudio Ranieri believed his side earned their own luck after they battled to a 2-1 Champions League defeat by Sevilla on Wednesday thanks to Jamie Vardy's late goal after being outclassed by the Spanish side.

Only a string of saves from inspired goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, including one from the penalty spot , -prevented a first-half deluge for the struggling -English champions, and -Sevilla also hit the woodwork twice -after the break.

Sevilla looked to be in charge of the tie when Joaquin Correa added to -Pablo Sarabia's first-half header to put the hosts 2-0 ahead, but Vardy made the most of Leicester's only real chance to keep them in touch.

"We know they are a better team than us with more quality and experience but we had more heart and we showed character. When you play with character sometimes luck is on your side," Ranieri told reporters.

"The first half was very tough and Kasper kept the team alive. The second half was much better from us and we believed we could do something good. We played well for a spell and then they scored again.

"We scored a goal that was important for three reasons: It gave us strength Cheap Nike VaporMax Plus Sale , it got Vardy back among the goals and for a striker your confidence depends on scoring, and it kept us in the tie."

Vardy's goal, the England international's first since December, means a 1-0 win in the second leg would take Leicester through to the quarterfinals.

They have endured a dismal season in the defense of their Premier league title Cheap Nike VaporMax Plus 2018 , lying 17th in the standings and just one point above the relegation zone.

Sevilla coach Jorge Sampaoli did not hide his disappointment at his side's failure to make their dominance count and kill off the tie.

"We leave here with a strange feeling because of their goal but that shouldn't change how we feel about our -performance. It was difficult to imagine we could dominate a game like that in the Champions League," he said.

Sampaoli praised Schmeichel's -performance.

"The only option we have is to maintain our philosophy in the second leg when the whole ground will be supporting its team intensely," he said.

"We dominated the first half and had six chances, we were less dominant in the second but still had more chances and they scored with their one -opportunity and are alive because of that. I feel dizzy about how tight the tie still is."

VIENNA, Oct. 18 (Xinhua) -- The Schoenbrunn Zoo here opened online voting on Tuesday for the naming of one of the two twin panda cubs born in August, the zoo stated in a press release.

In the past few weeks, the zoo accepted about 2,000 suggestions for possible names for the male cub, which it has now narrowed down to three -- Fu Lin, Fu Ban, and Fu Xiong.

This is also in keeping with the zoo's own tradition of using the name "Fu," meaning "happy" or "lucky" in English, as part of the names for panda cubs born there.

"There were so many excellent names, that we have enough ideas for the next hundred cubs," zoo director Dagmar Schratter said.

Voting will be open until Nov. 2, following which the name of the female cub, already chosen by the zoo, will also be revealed.

The zoo plans to hold a celebration for the naming of the pandas on Nov. 27.

Voting for the naming of the cub can be done on the Schoenbrunn Zoo website.
