The first-ever BRICS Games raised its curtain at the Guangzhou Baiyun International Convention Center on the evening of June 17. 


Gou Zhongwen, director of China's General Administration of Sport, declared opening of the Games which features some 300 athletes from five countries - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, with 10 events up for grabs in three sports - men's basketball, women's volleyball and Wushu.


As the host country, China has sent a delegation of 53 people, including 32 athletes, to take part in the first comprehensive multilateral sports and culture exchanges under the framework of BRICS cooperation.


The launch of the first BRICS Games marked an important consensus reached at the 8th BRICS Summit in Goa, India last October. China will host the 9th BRICS Summit in September in the coastal city of Xiamen in Fujian Province.

Global Innovation Index 2017

Switzerland, Sweden, the Netherlands, the United States and the United Kingdom are the top five global innovative economies, while a group of nations including India, Kenya, and Viet Nam are outperforming their development-level peers, according to the Global Innovation Index 2017 (GII 2017), released on June 15.


The Global Innovation Index surveys 130 economies using metrics from patent filings to education spending. The theme of the 2017 Index, Innovation Feeding the World, looks at innovation carried out in agriculture and food systems. The Index is co-authored by Cornell University, INSEAD and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).


Switzerland leads the rankings for the seventh consecutive year, with high-income economies taking 24 of the top 25 spots. In the top 25, China (which entered that group last year) moves up another three places, becoming the 22nd most innovative economy in the world. Recently, China has shown the strongest improvements in patent applications, university rankings and gross R&D expenditure. It also scores strongly in companies doing R&D and research talent.

Queen’s birthday

Queen Elizabeth II and senior royals have marked her official birthday in the annual Trooping the Color celebration. The 91-year-old monarch was greeted on June 17 by hundreds of well-wishers on a sunny day in the heart of ceremonial London. She rode with her husband Prince Philip in an open carriage in the procession along Horse Guards Parade.



The day began on a somber note when Elizabeth and Philip observed a minute of silence in honor of the victims of the horrific London apartment tower fire.


The Queen celebrates her birthday twice each year once on the anniversary of the day she was born, April 21, and on an official birthday in June, which this year falls on Saturday 17th June.

Transit Elevated Bus demolished

Workers have started demolishing a test site for the futuristic "straddling bus" in Qinhuangdao City, north China's Hebei Province, as the contract is set to expire.


The 22-meter-long Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) was envisioned to allow cars to pass underneath and maintain traffic flow. It had a test run at a newly built site in Qinghuangdao's Beidaihe District in August last year.


But questions about its technical feasibility and application, as well as the Beijing-based developer's financial health, have bogged it down.


Tests on the TEB stopped last October and the site had only two people working as keepers, according to local residents. Some residents living nearby complained the test site affected transportation.


A source said the Beidaihe District government has refused the developer's appeal to extend the land contract that will expire in July. Now the transport vehicle has had its power connection cut off, and the test rails are being removed.
