|A New Zealand river revered by Maori has been recognized by parliament as a "legal person Air Max 95 Ultra Essential Herren Nike Schuhe Schwarz Weiß Günstig ," in a move believed to be a world first.
Under legislation passed Wednesday that combines Western legal precedent with Maori mysticism, the Whanganui River has been formally declared a living entity.
"[It] will have its own legal identity with all the corresponding rights, duties and liabilities of a legal person," Attorney-General Chris Finlayson said.
"The approach of granting legal personality to a river is unique."
The river, known by Maori as Te Awa Tupua, is the third longest in New Zealand.
Finlayson said local Maori iwi had been fighting to assert their rights over the river since the 1870s, in New Zealand's longest-running legal dispute.
"This legislation recognizes the deep spiritual connection between the Whanganui iwi and its ancestral river Nike Air VaporMax Günstig ," he said.
It deems the river a single living being "from the mountains to the sea, incorporating its tributaries and all its physical and metaphysical elements."
In practical terms, it means the river can be represented at legal proceedings with two lawyers protecting its interests, one from the iwi the other from the government.
The iwi also received an NZ$80 million ($56 million) settlement from the government after their marathon legal battle, as well as $30 million to improve the river's health.
BUDAPEST, Dec. 18 (Xinhua) -- Hungary recognized its most outstanding athletes, coaches Nike Air Max 2018 Günstig , and team leaders at a special ceremony in Budapest on Thursday.
Swimmer Katinka Hosszu was voted the top female athlete. She broke five world records this year and earned 51 gold medals at this year's World Cup series. She also won FINA's Swimmer of the Year title this year.
Artistic gymnast Krisztian Berki, World Champion on the pommel horse, was voted top male athlete.
The Gyor women's handball team won for best team, beating out the men's modern pentathlon team for the honor.
Botond Storcz, coach of the Hungarian kayak-canoe team won the honor as best team coach, while Shane Tusup, Hosszu's coach and husband Nike Air Max 360 Günstig , won for best coach of an individual.
The awards were handed over during a ceremony on Thursday night attended by Istvan Simicsko, State Secretary at the Ministry of Human Resources responsible for sports and by Zsolt Borkai, president of the Hungarian Olympic Committee.
Hungarian Sportspeople of the Year awards are granted each year since 1958, according to sports journalists voting.
BEIJING, Jan. 6 (Xinhuanet) -- Nanjing car dealers are stocking up on secondhand cars to prepare for a possible quota on car license plates, as the city government looks to fight air pollution and traffic jams.
Zhang Jiyuan, who runs a dealership in the Zhongchi trading market Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential Günstig , said cheap vans, especially those costing less than 10,000 yuan ($1,650), are very popular among buyers.
"The buyers of cheap secondhand cars just want the plate," he said. "When Nanjing imposes a quota on new license plates, they can use the plates of the used cars to avoid a lottery or having to bid in auctions."
Zhang said some buyers even consider cars with more than 200 Nike Air Max 90 Mesh Günstig ,000 kilometers on the clock, which in his words are equal to piles of scrap metal.
Wu Changqing, a 26-year-old from Nanjing, decided to buy a used car because he knew a friend in Beijing who had tried in vain for three years to get a license plate after the capital introduced a lottery.
"Buying a new car is expensive right now," the real estate agent said. "When I buy a cheap used car, I won't be restricted by any quota policy."
Zhang Sheng, a car dealer near Nanjing's Daming Road Nike Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Flyknit Günstig , said he has stocked more than 30 secondhand cars, as he expects a quota will be imposed in the near future.
Cheap vans are hard to find because dealers like him are saving them for the future, he said.
"The cheapest one in our market costs about 20,000 yuan, an increase of 30 percent compared with last month," the dealer said. "A car license plate in Shanghai costs almost 100,000 yuan Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra Günstig , and I believe that the price of Nanjing's plates will soar (if a quota is introduced).
"Considering Nanjing's traffic conditions and the air quality, the city government will introduce traffic restrictions sooner or later."
By November, Nanjing, the provincial capital of Jiangsu, had experienced 218 smoggy days in 2013.
According to the Nanjing meteorological center, in December citizens witnessed no less than 20 heavily polluted days. On Dec 4 and 5, all kindergartens Nike Air Max 98 Günstig , primary and middle schools in the city suspended classes due to poor air quality.
Tianjin introduced a regulation on applying for license plates on Jan 1 that requires residents to participate in a lottery or auction to get a plate.
Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou have taken similar measures to limit car ownership. While Beijing has a lottery to issue plates, Shanghai uses a bidding system and Guangzhou uses both.
According to Nanjing's bureau of statistics, by June the city had 1.07 million registered private cars, accounting for 83 percent of vehicles on its roads.
However, according to the city traffic management bureau, the city government has no immediate plans to curb car ownership and declared it would solicit public opinion before introducing a quota.
The authority also said secondhand cars will be subject to a mandatory scrapping system if they fail to meet safety checks and emissions requirements for three years after being purchased.
