a representation of the organization Sangahi, during this event todoel Expo Zaragoza in Spain. To learn from mistakes and successes of this magnificent exhibition ending on September 14, 2008.

After the expo a large group of specialists from the current Expo Zaragoza move to work and guide the next expo. Organizers of Sangahi quedarón fascinated with the pace of work to finish the works on time and on water treatment with the Tribune Water, which wants to obtain a protocol on how to use water-style kyoto and post expo. I invite you to know.

Expo access works underway

2008-8-31

CONSTRUCTION of Expo Boulevard and an elevated pedestrian walk in the Puxi section of the Shanghai World Expo site began yesterday.

The work is part of the boulevard development covering both Puxi and Pudong zones and is the largest project in the Shanghai Expo construction schedule.

The Puxi end of the project involves a 480-meter boulevard and a 920-meter arch-shaped pedestrian walk, both of which are designed to connect entrances of major pavilions and link to shuttle bus stops. It is scheduled to be completed before the end of June next year.

The boulevard will start on the west side of Xizang Road S. in the north and be linked with the Xizang Road S. tunnel to form a complete traffic network. It will serve as the main thoroughfare between Puxi and Pudong sections of the 2010 event.

Construction of the boulevard on Pudong side, which started in July last year, will consist of two underground levels and one above ground. It will serve as a transportation and commercial center, including catering and entertainment services.

Greenery and decorative awnings will be installed on the Puxi pedestrian path which will start at Mengzi Road in the west. It will intersect with the boulevard and span part of the Xizang Road Tunnel.

All construction on the 5.28-square-kilometer Expo site is expected to finish by the end of next year, said Ding Hao, deputy director general of the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination.

High-tech protection

2008-9-1


AN optical fiber vibrant sensor developed by Fudan University could be used to safeguard the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, said professor Jia Bo, director of the university's Optical Fiber Research Center.

The Expo area is on both banks of the Huangpu River, and officials have to extend anti-terrorism measures to the river, where traditional security devices such as infrared monitors or electric fences are useless.

Jia said that the Expo organizers had shown great interest in their invention as optical fiber sensors are very suitable to disturbances in deep water.

Because optical fibers sensors are made of glass or plastic that carries light along their length, they need no electrical power and can't become rusty in the water, unlike metals.

Fudan's sensor is sensitive enough to detect vibrations in the water or air.

A machine linked to the fibers, weighing less than 4 kilograms, analyzes the transmission of light in the fiber to picture the source of the vibration, which may be caused by a person, a bird or a gust of wind.

"We plan to fix optical fibers along both banks of the Huangpu River," said Tang Huang, a member of the research center.

"If anyone tries to swim close to the bank or climb onto the flood walls, an alarm is sent immediately to the guards," he said.

The equipment was used successfully in the National Aquatics Center during the Olympic Games. The sensors accurately monitored the underwater speakers to ensure synchronized swimmers could hear the right music.

Fudan has been engaged in optical fiber technology research since 2002.

Fire breaks out on Shanghai Expo site
By Yang Jian | 2008-9-3 | ONLINE EDITION

SMOKE billowed 10 meters in the air upsetting traffic on the Lupu Bride when a fire broke out in the Puxi section of the World Expo 2010 Shanghai construction site at 4:20pm today.

No death or injuries were caused by the fire which erupted in a workshop in the former Jiangnan Shipyard Factory near the bridge.

Four fire trucks were dispatched to the scene and extinguished the fire within about 30 minutes.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The Shanghai World Expo site is between Nanpu Bridge and Lupu Bridge. The 5.28-square-kilometer site is divided into two parts by the Huangpu River. The Puxi section is about 1.35-square-kilometers.

I have a feeling that the Shanghai Expo will be totally different from other World Expos before. It might be comparable to the Paris World Expo on the late 19th century or the 1939 New York World Expo or probably better.

APEC and Miss World have been in China. Winter Olympics would be nice, but China is not great yet in winter sports.

I hope China will never joint the G8.
