URUMQI Thiago Alcantara Spain Jersey , Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- After Bada, 51, watched the animated TV series "Young Hero of Jangar", he reached the conclusion that the Mongolian people's "Homer" could be revitalized in his remaining years.

The Epic of Jangar, the life of the eponymous Jangar, is a tale of the defeat of evil and establishment of a utopia without war Sergio Rico Spain Jersey , hunger or cold.

"I see hope now of new life for the epic and the Mongolian culture it embodies, and for passing them on to the next generation," said Bada.

A traditional singer of Jangar since he was 17, Bada used to worry about the future of "outdated songs". He used to teach the epic at the Mongolian Middle School in the Mongolian Autonomous Prefecture of Bortala in farwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, for only 50 yuan (8.24 U.S. dollars) per class.

"The teaching was not effective. Few students were interested in learning 'old people's stuff'," said Bada Sergio Ramos Spain Jersey , quoting his students' words.

He was even more worried when he discovered that his daughter, third grader in junior high, prefered surfing the internet to learning Jangar from him.

"Who will sing Jangar after me?" Bada would ask himself as he searched for an apprentice both talented enough to be able to recite a work of over 150,000 lines and enthusiastic enough to consider singing and teaching the epic as a lifelong career. "It was so hard to find such an apprentice," sighed Bada.

It is not just the younger generation, but older people do not seem interested in Jangar anymore either.

At important occasions such as weddings Sergio Busquets Spain Jersey , Mongolian people used to always invite a Jangar singer, but many now prefer western style wedding gowns and pop music. In more traditional families, they only play recordings of Jangar.

"Fewer families invite me to sing on big occasions now and they offer less money," said Bada. Sometimes, all he gets is a meal. At other times, he may be lucky and earn 300 yuan.

In 2006 Santi Cazorla Spain Jersey , Jangar was listed as intangible culture heritage and the local government made more effort to revitalize the epic.

Bortala now has four Jangar singers including Bada. They each receive a monthly stipend of 1,000 yuan from Bole city government and a yearly subsidy of 300 yuan from the regional government.

Bortala promotes Jangar in primary and secondary schools to cultivate "little singers of Jangar." The prefecture also holds Jangar singing contest each year.

"My student Dilika from the Mongolian Middle School won first prize in a teenagers' Jangar contest this year and the school has promised me a classroom of my own," said Bada happily.

Wuyunhua, another of Bada's students, loves popular songs, but appreciates Jangar's narrative style as well. "My writing skills improved after I learned Jangar Pedro Rodriguez Spain Jersey ," she said.

Bada feels his hard work has finally paid off, but he still has concerns for Jangar's future.

"I hope that after watching the cartoon, people won't have the imprssion that the epic of Jangar is only for kids," said Bada, emphasizing that the epic is a serious art work and the epitome of the culture and history of the Mongolian people.

Dubai gets known worldwide not only due to its modern infrastructure, but also because of the marvelous building feats it periodically keeps on taking up. The world's first ever seven star hotel got erected upon and established only on Dubai's shores. One of the most exciting Marinas of today's time is also being developed across the same sea front these days; another feather in a long list of Dubai's landmarks. There is more to talk about nowadays though Paco Alcacer Spain Jersey , as the world's tallest building is also getting shaped up at the same location now. The soaring tower, named Burj Dubai, has some amazing stats and facts to speak of. Some of these are being listed and discussed below.

The tower is about to be built in the middle of a man-made lake, which when filled with water will provide the architecture a picturesque setting. The building will carry some influences of the Islamic architecture as well so as to keep Dubai's heritage alive. For example the triple-lobed footprint of the building is stated to be based on an Arabian flower. At the same time, some onion shaped domes are also being made part of the building's exteriors. Developers are no doubt aiming to provide this latest of Dubai's landmarks with a blend of the modern and Islamic outlooks both.

According to the plans, a public observation area and a private club are expected to get located at the building's top. Initially designed to have three decker elevators Oscar de Marcos Spain Jersey , the building will now carry only two decker elevators when completed in 2008. The last of the residential apartments will be constructed at the floor number 109th, while an observation area will be made available to the public on 124th. The whole structure is to be rotated about 20 degrees so as to make it withstand the stress being caused due to the Arabian sea winds. The plinth of tower goes 50 meters below the earth's surface, with a staggering amount of steel and up to 45,000 cubic meters of concrete dumped in there.

Despite Burj Dubai's external similarities with that of the Sears Tower, it stands way different in the structural terms. The building's earlier plans involved getting designs borrowed from Grollo Tower, which was proposed several years back at Melbourne. However Nolito Spain Jersey , it subsequently got replaced by Skidmore Owings & Merrill with the present structure. Burj Dubai will not only be the tallest building, but also the tallest man-made structure, when fully completed. The total number of floors expected are around 162. There is no word on the building's final height as of now, but it might stay around the 800 meters mark.

Dubai's economic clout has been rising rapidly in the recent years, and the projects like Burj Dubai are just a testimony to the same phenomenon. The world's tallest man-made structure, as they .
