BAGHDAD Mens Air Jordan Retro For Sale , April 13 (Xinhua) -- A United Nations report on Thursday said the destruction caused by the heavy battles to dislodge the Islamic State (IS) militants from the western side of Mosul is two and a half times greater than it was the eastern side of the city.


Using satellite imagery and information from local researches, the recent assessment by the United Nations Human Settlements Program Mens Air Jordan Shoes For Sale , found more than 1,140 housing sites have been destroyed in western Mosul Mens Air Jordan For Sale , the report said.


One-third of residential damage is reported in Mosul al-Jadida neighborhood, or New Mosul in English Mens Jordan Retro For Sale , in the western side of Mosul, according to the report.


"The level of damage in western Mosul is already far greater than in the east Mens Jordan Shoes For Sale , even before the battle to retake the Old City begins," said Lise Grande Air Jordan Retro For Sale , humanitarian coordinator for Iraq.


"Homes are being destroyed. Schools and health centers are damaged and crucial public infrastructure including electricity and water stations are in ruins," Grande said.


"Under international humanitarian law Air Jordan Shoes For Sale , parties to the conflict are obliged to do everything possible to protect civilians and limit damage to civilian infrastructure. Nothing is more important," she added.


The Iraqi forces have been fighting fierce street-to-street and house-to-house clashes against IS militants as they are trying to advance through the narrow streets in the old neighborhoods around the historical al-Nuri Mosque in the middle of Mosul's old city center.


The progress in western Mosul is much slower than the early phases of the offensive Air Jordan For Sale , as the battles against terrorist militants holed up in densely populated old city center, with its narrow and maze-like streets appear to be a bigger challenge to the Iraqi forces.

BEIJING, March 12 (Xinhua) -- "Don't you think this little girl looks great with the red glasses?" said Sam Waldo, pointing at a photo he took in Shangri-La County in southern China's Yunnan Province, with a radiant smile on his face.


Sam, a 28-year-old American volunteer teacher, has been dedicated to helping students in rural Yunnan since he first came to China.


He has teamed up with other volunteers to raise funds and donations for vision tests and corrective lenses to help local students in need.


"We did some researches and this problem exists throughout Yunnan," Sam said, concerned about the impact vision problems may have on students' academic performances. "Giving a child a pair of glasses is equivalent to giving them an additional year of schooling."p "It's also been proven that glasses have a higher impact on educational outcome for students than a family's education level or economic background," he said.


Sam's attachment to China could trace back to his school days. When he studied Chinese at Columbia University in New York, he fell in love with the ancient language and culture. Later, in 2008, he made his first visit to China, a trip that further consolidated his decision to move to this country.


Amazed by its economic and social development over the years, Sam felt a sense of excitement in China, a country filled with new ideas and dynamism.


"I was really amazed by everything that happened here, so much change, so much possibility and a lot of areas to contribute. So that's why I decided to move to China in 2010," Sam said.


Interested in understanding the other face of China that foreigners usually don't get the chance to see, Sam joined a program called Teach for China that offered volunteers teaching opportunities in rural areas in Yunnan Province.


"I was really excited to go to a part of China, hours and hours away from the nearest McDonald's, from the nearest familiar cultural things, and to really spend a long time there getting to know what is life like there for people, what are the needs and dreams and challenges of young people in China's rural areas," he said.


Upon arrival in Yunnan, Sam was fascinated by the local culture. "From Monihei Festival in Cangyuan to WWII history in Chuxiong, or hiking trails up in the Nujiang area next to Tibet, there was so much diversity in such a compact region," Sam said.


"Most of my students were different ethnic minorities. When I went to their homes and met their parents and grandparents, they were still wearing a lot of traditional clothing, and farming in traditional methods using hand plows and water buffalo, something that was entirely new for me to see and explore," he said.


However, the rich culture was not the only thing Sam noticed. While he was racking his brains to help local students understand English vocabulary and grammar, he realized that some of the students sitting in the back of the classroom were just not performing well.


"You can see them like squinting and really trying to get the information on the blackboard but they just couldn't. Or they were not copying notes when they should be. So we realize that these kids just could't see," Sam said.


Sam and other volunteers had tried to make more photocopies of notes and let the students move to the front of the classroom, but they knew it was not a long-term solution. That was when the idea of glasses donation came up.


They started the donation at three schools in the local village. With money raised from friends and families, t
