Cultural China: "Faith can move mountains"******

TAIYUAN, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- In traditional Chinese culture, a proverb similar to "faith can move mountains" is called "Yu Gong Yi Shan," which means "the Foolish Old Man who moved mountains."

In the story, the Foolish Old Man, or Yugong, and his family lived in mountains that blocked their way in and out. To facilitate movement for themselves and the future generation, Yugong, approaching his 90s, was determined to remove the mountains, shovel by shovel.。

His act was mocked by the Wise Old Man, or Zhisou. "You are so foolish. With your remaining years and the little strength you still have, you could not cut a tree in the mountain. How can you possibly move all the soil and rocks," questioned Zhisou.。

Yugong replied, "It's true that I will die, but I have my sons, and they will have sons. Then their sons will have sons, and those sons will also have sons. I will have endless sons and grandsons, but these mountains will not grow. Why can't they be leveled?"

In the end, God was touched by Yugong's perseverance and sent two titans from heaven who helped move the mountains away.。

The fable has become a synonym for forging ahead while facing enormous difficulties and persevering to the end. Although it is not a real story, perseverant villagers in the Taihang Mountains of north China's Shanxi Province dug through a mountain standing between their village and the outside world.。

With a cliffside road built, farmers in Shenlongwan Village in Pingshun County have sent their agricultural products out for sale and brought in tourists, shaking off poverty and embracing prosperity.。

Benefiting from its unique climate, Shenlongwan is famous for its farming products, such as walnuts and pears, but transporting the farm produce out used to be a problem.。

Before the road was built, villagers had to trek six hours, detouring eight townships of three provinces to arrive at the county seat, or risk their lives climbing a narrow, almost vertical steep pass.。

"We desperately needed a road," said Duan Jianlin, a veteran from the village who participated in the construction. "If we couldn't finish building it in one year, we would try two years. If two years were not enough, we would make it three years."

It took the villagers 15 years to build the 1,526-meter road using simple tools like hammers and chisels.。

Now, 60 percent of the 700-plus villagers are engaged in tourism-related businesses. In the first half of this year, the village received more than 300,000 tourists despite the epidemic.。

"Walking on such a unique road is not only to enjoy the beautiful scenery but also to learn from the villagers' perseverance," said Zhang Hao, a traveler from Shanghai.。

Last year, the village saw its net per capita income reach 12,000 yuan (about 1,875 U.S. dollars). By comparison, the figure was only 680 yuan in 2000, when the road went operational.。

"The road is a path to prosperity and also a symbol revealing the traditional struggling spirit of Chinese people," said Zhou Haiyu, former Party chief of the village. Enditem。

Benavidez strike sinks Boca Juniors******

BUENOS AIRES, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- A first-half goal from Uruguayan midfielder Carlos Benavidez gave Independiente a 1-0 home win over Boca Juniors in Argentina's Primera Division on Thursday.。

Benavidez struck with a diving header in the 20th minute after Alan Velasco's low cross from the right flank.。

Boca were forced to play the last 10 minutes with 10 men after Carlos Izquierdoz was shown a straight red card for striking opponent Alan Velasco with an elbow to the abdomen.。

Independiente are now ninth in the 26-team Primera Division standings while Boca are fifth with three matchdays remaining in the season.。

In other Primera Division fixtures on Wednesday, Newell's Old Boys won 1-0 at home to Central Cordoba, Banfield drew 0-0 at Sarmiento and Defensa y Justicia won 4-0 at Atletico Tucuman. Enditem。

Dortmund fall to Ajax, Leipzig hold PSG in UEFA Champions League******

BERLIN, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- Ajax Amsterdam bounced back 3-1 against ten-men Borussia Dortmund to progress into the last 16 ahead of schedule while Paris Saint-Germain shared the spoils with resilient Leipzig at the fourth round in Champions League on Wednesday.。

The "BVB" started highly motivated into the encounter and should have opened the scoring with eight minutes gone but neither Thorgan Hazard nor Jude Bellingham was able to beat Ajax goalkeeper Remko Pasveer from promising positions.。

Dortmund continued aggressive but had to swallow a setback in the 29th minute when Mats Hummels received his marching orders for a foul play on Antony.。

Although Dortmund had to play with ten men, the hosts opened the scoring in the 37th minute after Marco Reus converted a foul play penalty into the bottom left corner.。

Ajax had the golden chance to restore parity just before halftime, but Steven Berghuis couldn't beat Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel following a one-on-one.。

After the break, Dortmund kept all its men behind the ball and tried to focus on counterattacks. The host's strategy paid off until the 72nd minute before Dusan Tadic tapped home a deflected cross at the far post to shock the BVB with the equalizer.。

Ajax gained momentum and completed its comeback in the 83rd minute after Antony's pinpoint cross allowed Sebastian Haller to head home the 2-1 lead from inside the box.。

Things went from bad to worse for the hosts in the game's dying minutes as Antony's square pass to the far post found Davy Klaassen, who poked home from very close to make it 3-1 on the scoreboards.。

"It is always tough if you have to play for most of the time with a numerical disadvantage. We defended well though, but we conceded two similar goals following a cross. We gave everything but it wasn't enough for a win or a draw," Dortmund team captain Marco Reus said.。

With the result, Ajax booked its berth for the next round after reaping four wins in as many games in Group C. The "BVB" slipped to third place and will face Sporting in an all-or-nothing clash.。

Elsewhere, Leipzig secured a late two-all draw against Paris Saint-Germain.。

The "Red Bulls" caught a perfect start on home soil as Christopher Nkunku marked an early opener.。

PSG remained unimpressed and turned the tides by courtesy of Gerorginio Wijnaldum's first-half brace.。

The hosts had the last laugh though as Dominik Szoboszlai converted a penalty to clinch a last-gasp 2-2 draw.。

Despite the share of the spoils, Leipzig stay in last place of Group A meanwhile PSG slumped to the 2nd spot. Enditem。

Mexico given two******

MEXICO CITY, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- Mexico will be forced to play their next two home World Cup qualifiers behind closed doors because of homophonic chants from fans, FIFA said on Monday.。

World football's governing body also fined the Mexican football federation 100,000 Swiss francs (110,000 U.S. dollars) for incidents during World Cup qualifiers against Canada and Honduras in September.。

The ruling means Mexico will host Costa Rica on January 30 and Panama on February 2 at empty stadiums as they bid for a place in football's showpiece event in Qatar next year.。

"In line with FIFA's zero-tolerance stance against discrimination and violence in football, a number of member associations have been punished due to discriminatory behavior by their respective supporters," read a statement on FIFA's official website.。

FIFA also banned supporters from attending Albania's last home qualifier against Andorra on November 12 after plastic bottles were thrown at Poland's players while celebrating a goal last month.。

Meanwhile, Poland fans have been barred from their team's last qualifier in Andorra on November 12 because of unruly behavior during the clash in the Albanian capital Tirana.。

In addition, FIFA fined Hungary 75,000 Swiss francs and prohibited fans from the qualifier against Poland on November 15 for letting off fireworks and dangerous conduct in the match against England in London. Enditem。
