I have always loved sports equipment. I like the odor of a new baseball mitt Naby Keita Liverpool Shirt , how a new bat feels, and the firmness of a new pair of soccer cleats. The sport doesn't even matter that much. I like outdoor sporting equipment, hockey equipment - I have tried a lot of sports, and I like them all. There is nothing nicer than new equipment and a friendly match between friends.

Regarding playing sports, most people fit into one of two categories. Either they are good at sports or they're not attracted to sports. There are few people who are good at sports but not attracted to them, and some persons who are interested in sports but not good at them. I resisred the fashion. I like sport equipment because I like sports, But I have never been better than ordinary at a single one. I took martial arts classes as a kid James Milner Liverpool Shirt , but never got to black belt. I was in small league baseball, but I spent a lot of the time on the bench. It doesn't matter. I like collecting the sports equipment, to watch the games, and perhaps even be lucky enough to play.

Nowadays, I don't play sports games as often as I would like to. A lot of my sports equipment is sitting on outdoor shelving in my garage, gathering dust. Nonetheless, Every now and then Dejan Lovren Liverpool Shirt , I still get to use some of the equipment sports. The outdoor sports equipment, in particular, has been used a lot this spring. The weather was very nice, and it was hard to stay inside any more than I need to. I have been mountain biking, hiking, and I even had a chance to play a friendly game of soccer. It has been nice to pull out the old sports equipment and try it on again.

I always have to take a friend with me when I go to the equipment sports store. You understand, my love of sports equipment makes it really hard for me to restrain my wallet. I come up with all kinds of strange reasons for getting improbable gear. I bought a new sports radio the other day Georginio Wijnaldum Liverpool Shirt , for example, even though I don't go jogging. I almost had to buy a pair of hiking shoes that I saw even though my old ones are still in a very goos shape. The only way to avoid making mistakes with my purchases is bringing along a friend with me when I go shopping.Zhu Jianming, a 57-year-old driving instructor, teaches his student in Shenzhen,Guangdong Province, November,2013.

Getting a driving license on the Chinese mainland is not an easy process.

Apart from lengthy training and complicated examinations one must suffer through Virgil van Dijk Liverpool Shirt , applicants may also need to pay a bribe to their driving instructors as "insurance" to make sure they can get their license.

The Ministry of Public Security announced a potential plan for reform last week to make taking lessons in driving schools optional and to allow applicants to register for driving tests on their own.

Observers have seen the move as a way to curb corruption within the driving license management system.

Corrupt traffic

In China, most people who apply for driving license need to attend a minimum of 64 hours of training organized by a driving school before they take the four required examinations, including classes on driving theory, the rules of the road and driving practice. The total tuition fees normally cost between 4,000 yuan ($651) and 10,000 yuan and the whole process takes around two to three months.

Although there is no law or regulation explicitly stating that one must attend a training school before applying for a driving test, in practice Nathaniel Clyne Liverpool Shirt , many vehicle management authorities and traffic police only accept applications sent through authorized training schools.

As of November 2014, China has more than 300 million licensed drivers, including 244 million car drivers, according to the Ministry of Public Security on Thursday. 22 percent of Chinese people have driving licenses, and the number will continue to surge in the next few years, the ministry said.

This September, more than 20 officials working in the vehicle management department in Shijiazhuang Customized Liverpool Shirt , Hebei Province, were fired and put under investigation after being accused of taking millions of yuan from 40 local driving schools.

In this case, schools required their students to pay a 500 yuan "guarantee fee" and giving 300 yuan to the authorities in charge of the examinations. Students who paid this money would pass the test regardless of their actual performance.

Fan Li, a senior official of the China Road Transport Association, told The Beijing News that many driving teachers did not provide enough instruction to their students. Instead they just prepared them to pay examiners, Fan said.

Even though they obtain a driving license, many people are still very poor drivers and are likely to cause traffic accidents Blank Liverpool Shirt , he added,

The traffic management bureau, under the Ministry of Public Security, has said previously that new drivers with less than three years of experience have increasingly been involved in accidents.

In 2010, more than 30 percent of traffic accidents involved new drivers, and this figure jumped to over 40 percent in the first six months of 2012.

Power abuse

Wang Jun, a driving teacher who has taught in a Beijing driving school in Haidian district for five years Xherdan Shaqiri Shirt , told the Global Times that the examination pass rate is crucial to instructor's income and to training schools' profit.

"Our salaries include bonuses based on how many students pass their driving tests. However, applicants need to wait to take a test due to the increasing number of car owners," Wang said.

Another Beijing-based driving instructor, surnamed Zhang who has taught people how to drive for 18 years, told the Global Times that some driving instructors pay vehicle management officials to jump the queue and have more of their students take the exams.

"Those teachers or driving schools normally attract students with low tuition fees and then demand money from students if they w.
