NEW YORK Ricky Seals-Jones Cardinals Jersey , Oct. 13 (Xinhua) -- Yue-Sai Kan, a famous Chinese-American entrepreneur and Emmy-winning television producer, received a special woman's award presented by former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in New York on Friday.

Yue-Sai Kan won the Ban Ki-moon Social Enterpreneurship Award along with two other women. Gloria Steinem won the Ban Ki-moon Women's Empowerment Award, while Eva Haller won the Ban Ki-moon Mentorship Award.

"It is such an honor for me to be able to properly recognize these amazing women. During my tenure as secretary general, I always worked to make women's empowerment a top priority and I can see that Asia Initiatives (AI) is carrying on that legacy," Ban said.

Yue-Sai was hailed by People Magazine as the "most famous woman in China," for her involvement in efforts to build libraries and schools for communities in China and being a UN "Say Yes to Children" ambassador.

The awards, instituted in Ban's name, were intended to honor the secretary general's important contributions to women's issues, including his role in the creation of the UN Women department, the establishment of the first High-Level Panel on Women's Economic Empowerment.

Ban's work reduced the gender wage gap within the UN itself and increased the number of women in senior management.

Steinem has been an icon of the American feminist movement since the 1970s. She founded Ms. Magazine in 1972, co-founded New York Magazine, traveled extensively to give lectures and served as a frequent media spokesperson for feminist issues.

Steinem's recently published memoir, My Life On the Road, is a New York Times Bestseller.

Haller is a Hungarian-American philanthropist. She participated in the Hungarian resistance movement in World War II as a young girl and now serves as a mentor on the boards of many nonprofits, including AI, Women For Women International, Free the Children and the Jane Goodall Institute.

"This evening will celebrate the breakthrough accomplishments of these three women as well as the hard work of women and families lifting themselves out of poverty," saod Geeta Mehta, AI President and co-founder.

LONDON, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- Britain's most famous playwright William Shakespeare is being used to help spearhead a new drive to attract overseas tourists to the Midlands area of England.

The tourism agency Shakespeare's England has joined a three-year joint partnership with three other agencies to market Britain's second biggest city, Birmingham, and the surrounding areas to a global audience.

VisitBritain said Birmingham Airport, the West Midlands Growth Company and Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire, have also joined the partnership.

Together, the organisations will market Birmingham and the surrounding areas to a global audience and convert inspiration to visit into bookings, and promote direct flights to the area.

VisitBritain Commercial Director Carol Dray said: "Increasing regional connectivity not only makes it easier for visitors to see more of Britain, the West Midlands and the Peak District, it boosts economic growth, and helps keep us an attractive destination in this fiercely competitive global market."

Helen Peters, CEO of Shakespeare's England, told Xinhua how the famous bard is crucial to tourism to the area where one of the world's most famous writers was born and lived.

"The name of William Shakespeare is known around the world, so much so that when Birmingham was promoting its airport in China, it was labelled as 'Shakespeare's Airport'".

"Stratford-on-Avon where he was born and lived is a small market town with a population of just 27,000, yet the town attracts over 10 million visitors every year. There are few towns of that size that attract so many visitors from home and overseas, particularly as the town centre only covers one square mile."

"But within that square mile are some of the most important sites linked to Shakespeare."

Asked how Shakespeare would react to the knowledge that his birthplace was so important on the global stage, Peters told Xinhua: "Most artists would wish to leave some kind of legacy and Shakespeare's name lives on after 400 years. I am sure he would be delighted.

"Although he wrote his famous plays centuries ago, his story lines, covering love, loss, marriage, combats between families, are as relevant today. His work remerges as modern day stories, such as in the musical Guys and Dolls, which is essentially the story of Romeo and Juliet."

West Midlands Growth Company Director of Marketing and Communications Emma Gray said: "Birmingham and its surrounding areas have become increasingly popular tourist destinations, attracting some 1.5 million international visitors in 2015."

NEW YORK, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- U.S. stocks inched down after wavering in a tight range Thursday, as the country's economic growth in the third quarter came out weaker than expected.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 23.72 points, or 0.13 percent, to 17,755.80. The S&P 500 edged down 0.94 point, or 0.04 percent, to 2,089.41. The Nasdaq Composite Index decreased 21.42 points, or 0.42 percent, to 5,074.27.

U.S. real gross domestic product (GDP) expanded at an annual rate of 1.5 percent in the third quarter, down from the revised 3.9 percent increase in the second quarter and missing market expectations of 1.7 percent, the Commerce Department reported Thursday.

On a year-on-year basis, the American economy increased 2 percent in the third quarter, which represents the slowest expansion since the first quarter of 2014.

"Slow growth with a huge slowdown in inventory building and solid growth in final sales is good news. Demand grew at a solid pace. But the seeds of a slowdown in Q4 are already planted in the form of slowing consumption and weakness i.
