MOSCOW Greg Zuerlein Jersey , Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin announced Wednesday that he would seek a new term in the presidential election next year.

"I will stand as a candidate for the post of president of the Russian Federation," Putin was quoted by RIA Novosti news agency as saying during a meeting with employees of a car-making plant in the city of Nizhny Novgorod.

Russia is scheduled to hold its next presidential election on March 18, 2018. Putin is largely expected to win by a landslide.

Putin was first elected as president of Russia in 2000 and re-elected in 2004. From 2008 to 2012, he served as prime minister. In 2012, he was elected president again.

So far, several people have officially declared their intention to join the 2018 presidential race, including Vladimir Zhirinovsky, leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia; Grigory Yavlinsky, founder of the liberal Yabloko party; and Maxim Suraikin, head of the Communists of Russia party.

The list also includes TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak, businessman Sergei Polonsky, as well as singer and journalist Ekaterina Gordon.

Opposition leader Alexei Navalny also expects to participate, but according to the Russian Central Electoral Commission, he cannot do that because of his previous conviction.

Gennady Zyuganov, leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, is also expected to join the race.


NEW DELHI, June 18 (Xinhua) -- Five fishermen from the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu were arrested by Sri Lankan navy, India's official broadcaster - All India Radio (AIR) said Sunday.

The fishermen were arrested off the coast while fishing off Neduntheevu in international waters.

""Five Tamil Nadu fishermen were arrested and their boat impounded by the Sri Lankan navy today for allegedly fishing in their territorial waters,"" AIR said.

The broadcaster, quoting state fishermen association president N Devadoss, said the fishermen from Mandapam had put out to sea in a boat early Sunday.

""They were fishing off Neduntheevu, when Lankan naval men surrounded and took them to Kangesanthurai port in Sri Lanka,"" Devadoss said

Fishermen of the two countries are often jailed for accidentally crossing into each other's territories. The fishermen traverse poorly defined boundary in the international waters as most fishing boats lack technologies to locate exact positions.

" The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, worked as an exceptional team whose inventions of the airplane required a series of painstaking engineering tests and data collection. The Wright brothers developed an unusual strategy that was far away from anyone’s imagination. They studied the mechanics of the aircraft to determine what was actually required to safely control it. By this, they successfully invented a series of Wright Brothers Gliders: the 1901 Wright Glider, 1902 Wright Glider and then achieved success by inventing 1903 Wright Glider.

The brothers began engineering Kites in 1899 at their bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio. They selected a beach at Kitty Hawk, NC as their proving ground. The area's continuous wind added lift to their kites and gliders. They developed Wright Brothers Gliders on the theory that control was the key to successful flight and tested their mastery through the series of glider projects. They began to take incremental steps towards their earliest gliders. The first one was the 1900 Wright Glider and the second one was the 1901 Wright Glider. To overcome the drawbacks of the 1900 Wright Glider, they made certain changes and the following year developed the 1901 Wright Glider. The 1901 Wright Glider also did not worked as anticipated. Both Wright Brothers Gliders faced problems and did not produce the lift as expected.

After all this, Wright Brothers Gliders took a new direction. The 1902 Wright Glider came into the picture. For this, the Wright brothers developed a wind tunnel to test which wing shape would generate sufficient lift. They carefully planned each step to develop the much improved 1902 Wright Glider with which the brothers Orville and Wilbur achieved the control over their aircraft. The 1902 Wright Glider was their third glider that was fully controllable and can roll, pitch and yaw in air.

The 1902 Wright Glider was the most revolutionary aircraft ever invented and was a genius product of the Wright Brothers. A number of other parties built their own gliders, but none were as powerful and strong as Wright Brothers Gliders. The Wright brothers continued to improve and invented the first successful airplane that was more superior and heavier: the 1903 Wright Glider. With their series of inventions, the Wright brothers soon became well-known for their developments in building a craft that was heavier than air and, to some extent, was a controlled airplane. So with the successful inventions of Wright brothers’ gliders, they gave birth to airplane industry. "

BEIJING, March 12 (Xinhua) -- China's star sisters Jiang Wenwen and Jiang Tingting won the duet technical title at the FINA Synchronized Swimming World Series in Paris on Sunday.

The twin sisters, who made history by finishing fourth in pairs synchronized swimming at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, retired after the National Games in 2013. They each decided to make a comeback in 2015 after having daughters.
