FUZHOU cheap nike air max 120 , Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- Lin Rigeng brims with pride everytime he tells visitors the stories of his house.

""I never get tired of it. Actually, I enjoy it,"" he said.

The four-story clay building Lin, 66, shares with 77 otherscovers an area of 5,000 square meters, or nearly three quarters ofa football field. It was built a century ago by his grandfather'sbrothers.

These buildings are known as ""tulou cheap nike air max dlx 2019 ,"" which means ""building madeof earth"" in Chinese. In July 2008, tulou were inscribed on theUNESCO's World Heritage List as a unique residential architectureof east China's Fujian Province.

Lin's house in Hongkeng Village was among the 46 representativetulou presented to the World Heritage Committee.

""My house belongs to the world. I want everyone to learn aboutit,"" said Lin.


Tulou can take many forms, including rings, triangles, squares,rectangles cheap nike air max tn plus , and pentagons. Lin's home is one of the most commonring-shaped tulou.

It is believed that the first tulou were built in the 11thcentury by people who escaped the wars in central China. This isone explanation for why tulou have an extremely thick outer wall.The wall around Lin's home is 1.3 meters thick.

Tulou functioned as a fortress to protect residents frominvaders and wild animals.

There are more than 20,000 tulou in Yongding County, about twoand a half hours drive from Xiamen which recently hosted the ninthBRICS summit.

The oldest existing tulou in the county was built 600 years ago.The largest has 384 rooms and can accommodate at least 800people.

Lin's house was named Zhencheng Lou by his grandfather. It has208 rooms arranged according to the bagua, an eight-point diagramthat determines the auspicious locations for various functions tobalance the energy within the house.

Fifteen families live in the building and all are involved intourism-related businesses, including tour guiding, runninghomestays, selling farm produce such as tea cheap nike air max 270 , mushrooms, driedvegetables and persimmons, and souvenirs including tulou models andbooks.

""We are richer. Our life is better, so is our livingenvironment,"" said Lin, when talking about changes that touristshave brought for his family.

According to Yongding County records, a model of Zhencheng Louwas on display at an international architectural model expo held inLos Angeles since the 1980s.

Locals tell a story that tulou cheap nike air vapormax plus , especially the ring-shaped ones,were spotted by U.S. satellites and mistaken for missile silos ornuclear devices during the Cold War.

""In my opinion, that tale originally helped attractinternational attention to tulou,"" Lin said.


Lin is the son of a farmer and his name means ""plowingeveryday.""

He was born in Zhencheng Lou, and could not be a more hospitablehost. Back in the 1980s, when few people knew about the buildings,he began voluntarily guiding visitors cheap nike just do it shoes , treating them withhome-grown tea, food and wine, and telling them the history of thebuildings.

""The moment they entered Zhencheng Lou, they were simultaneouslyshocked and excited. They could not imagine how people could buildsuch a large house to accommodate a whole clan,"" Lin said, ""Onlythen did I realize my house was such a treasure.""

In 1991, Lin became the first tulou tour guide hired by YongdingCounty Tourism Administration.

He said he learned even more about his own home from earlyvisitors cheap nike air max 90 white , many of whom were architects or fans of historicalbuildings.

Despite having only a primary school education, Lin has writtena book on tulou.

As a tour guide, he leads around 300 groups of visitors eachyear. He also runs a souvenir shop and a homestay with 10 beds.

Four years ago, his eldest son Lin Shangkang, 43, quit his jobas a biology teacher at a local high school to help the familybusiness.

However, Lin has one problem -- he doesn't speak English.

Over the years cheap nike air max 90 black , thousands of people from more than 30 countriesand regions have visited his house. It's hard for him to describethe beauty of tulou vividly without speaking a second language.

The recent BRICS summit is expected to bring more internationalvisitors to the county.

""I love to talk with international visitors from all walks oflife,"" said Lin, ""I can learn about the outside world from insidemy old house."" Enditem


SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- French scientists have found that people's biological clock can be a vital factor in fighting inflammatory disease such as fulminant hepatitis, a new study suggests.

Scientists from the National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm), Pasteur Institute of Lille and University of Lille in northern France have worked on the links between biological clock and inflammatory disease.

Through experiments on human cells and mice, they discovered that the anti-inflammatory action of a biological clock protein could block the onset of fulminant hepatitis by easing symptoms and increasing survival rates.

The findings of their study were carried in the latest edition of Gastroenterology.

Fulminant hepatitis is a serious disease that has no effective cure cheap nike air max 90 ultra se , except liver transplant within 24 hours after the onset of its symptoms.

The illness can cause rapid deterioration of tissue ad liver function in patients, in addition to blood coagulation disorders and irreparable brain damage.

The French scientists found a biological clock protein called Rev-erba, which notably targets adipose tissue, together with liver, skeletal muscle and brain cells.

Their experiments on human immune system cells and on mice established the fact that inflammation follows a circadian rhythm.

Test results of mice, which received Rev-erba-activating treatment, showed less severe forms of the disease and a higher survival rate.
