BEIJING, March 21 (Xinhua) -- Sleeping the night through has become a luxury for many Chinese living amid the growing stress of a fast-paced society.

A survey by Chinese Sleep Research Society showed that 76 percent of Chinese aged 10 to 45 suffer from sleep disorders, while only 11 percent of the nearly 60,000 surveyed said they could regularly sleep the whole night through.

The survey is part of activities marking the 17th World Sleep Day that falls on Tuesday.

Entrepreneurs suffer most due to competition pressure and uncertainty about their careers, and 91 percent of them still feel tired even after sleeping.

In the past, people were hesitant to discuss insomnia with their physicians because they were afraid their problems would be seen as trivial, or conversely, they were afraid they would be told they had a serious illness. This, however, has changed as a result of improved standards of living and growing awareness of health. Insomnia has become a public topic and draws broad concern.

The fast pace of life, work pressure and extensive use of lighting are all factors resulting in insomnia, said Zhang Bin, deputy director-general of the sleep medicine committee of the Chinese Medical Doctors Association.

In addition, the survey showed that use of computers and mobile phones affected sleep quality. Some 93 percent of respondents said they spent time watching TV series or shopping on the Internet before going to bed.

Occasional insomnia is common, but constant insomnia may induce various problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Drinking alcohol or doing sports before going to bed do not help.

Statistics show that the risk of depression is greater for insomniacs, and abuse of alcohol and other substances is more prevalent among them.

The appropriate sleep time for an adult is seven to eight hours, less for the elderly and nine to ten hours for children, said Lu Lin, head of Peking University Sixth Hospital.

Lu noted that constant lack of sleep among children would lead to attention disorders and may even affect the development of the brain.

The World Sleep Day has been marked in China since 2003.

WELLINGTON Nike Air Max Womens Sale , May 21 (Xinhua) -- The New Zealand government is to spend about 16.5 billion NZ dollars (12.09 billion U.S. dollars) in rebuilding the earthquake-battered second city of Christchurch and the surrounding Canterbury region, it revealed in the annual Budget Thursday.

The total cost of rebuilding the city and surrounding areas had been estimated at 40 billion NZ dollars (29.32 billion U.S. dollars), Finance Minister Bill English said in a published speech to Parliament.

Good progress was being made on the commercial and residential rebuild since the first large earthquake struck in September 2010, said English.

"Large private sector projects are a testament to the positive future investors see for Christchurch Air Max 95 Womens Sale , and 23,000 square meters of office space has been completed," he said.

"It is important to maintain momentum with the city's anchor projects, most of which are complex developments with multiple partners. The Budget contains additional operating funding of 108 million NZ dollars (79.17 million U.S. dollars) over four years to ensure these projects remain on track."

The new funding would support land and building clearances Air Max 90 Womens Sale , and cover the cost of owning and developing hundreds of millions of dollars of assets purchased by the government after the quakes.

"By the middle of this year we will have a better idea about what the right structure in Christchurch should be, and implementing this structure will help maintain progress towards long-term recovery in the city and its surrounds," said English.

Christchurch has been hit by thousands of tremors since a 7.1- magnitude quake on September 4, 2010 Air Max Womens Sale , including a 6.3-magnitude quake that killed 185 people on February 22, 2011.

KUNMING, China Nike Air Max 90 Sale , Nov. 14 (Xinhua) -- World Cup-winning coach Marcello Lippi on Monday showed his determination to win the key World Cup qualifier against Qatar here on Tuesday night in his debut as head coach of the Chinese national soccer team.

"Our goal is to win, if we want to make the World Cup dream come true. We need points," Lippi told a pre-match press conference here on Monday.

China has suffered a 4-game winless run in the last stage of the Asian Zone qualifying campaign, collecting only one point and sitting at the bottom of the 6-team Group A which includes South Korea Nike Air Max Sale , Iran, Uzbekistan, Qatar and Syria.

The top two of the group will advance to Russia 2018 directly after a home-and-away round-robin, and the third finisher will have a playoff against its counterpart in Group B.

But Lippi Air Max 95 Sale , who was officially appointed last month after local coach Gao Hongbo resigned, believed that China can play well.

"One point does not represent what the team can really do. There's no such big gap between us and the others," the 68-year-old Italian said through an interpreter. "In the past weeks, we worked very hard. I really believe we have very good players in the national team."

"Of course Air Max 90 Sale , we need to be very well-organized on the pitch. With discipline and instructions, these players can play very good football," he added.

China captain Zheng Zhi echoed the determination.

"As the coach said, our goal is to get three points Air Max Sale ," he said.
