|INCHEON puma rihanna bleu creepers , South Korea, July 6 (Xinhua) -- The 4th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) lowered its curtain here on Saturday after eight days of competition.
A total of 1,700 athletes from 44 countries and regions competed in 12 sports including billiards, bowling, chess, baduk (go), e-sports puma rihanna rouge creepers , dance sport, futsal, indoor kabaddi, kickboxing, muay, kurash and short-course swimming.
China topped the gold medal tally with 29 golds, followed by host South Korea with 21 and Vietnam eight. China also won 13 silvers and 10 bronzes.
As a trial run for the 2014 Incheon Asian Games puma rihanna marron creepers , organizers tested procedures for running large sporting events to ascertain whether any additional improvements could be made before holding the bigger event next year.
"This year's Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games were a significant testing ground for next year's successful staging of the Asian Games," said Syed Arif Hasan, vice president of the OCA.
This is the first time the originally separate Indoor Sports Games and Martial Arts Games are held as one event. The Asian Indoor Games were first held in Bangkok, Thailand in 2005, then in Macao, China in 2007 and in Hanoi, Vietnam in 2009. The fist Asian Martial Arts Games were held in Bangkok.
Ashkhabad of Turnmenistan will host the fifth edition of the AIMAG in 2017.
Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant denied on Tuesday having stolen the opening of the rock group's iconic song "Stairway to Heaven puma rihanna bordeaux creeper ," telling a jury he had written the anthem decades ago while in the English countryside.
The 67-year-old musician told a Los Angeles federal court that the song at the center of a federal copyright case was clearly his work as well as that of Zeppelin guitarist-songwriter Jimmy Page.
He recalled hearing "Stairway" in its infancy in the early 1970s at Headley Grange, a recording and rehearsal venue in Hampshire, Britain, that the band used.
"That particular evening, I sat with Jimmy by the fire, and I had this first couplet that fit with what he was playing," he testified puma rihanna rose creeper , recounting the beginning lyrics of the famous rock song.
"I was really trying to bring the remote, pastoral Britain... the old, almost unspoken Celtic references into the piece," he added.
Plant was one of the last witnesses to testify in the high-profile case, with closing arguments set to begin on Wednesday (local time) before the jury retires to begin deliberating a verdict.
Plant and Page are being sued for allegedly stealing the anthem's melancholic opening guitar arpeggio from "Taurus," a track on the first album of long-defunct LA psychedelic rock band Spirit.
Spirit guitarist Randy California, who penned "Taurus puma rihanna suede femme ," long maintained he deserved a songwriting credit for "Stairway" but never took legal action and drowned in Hawaii in 1997.
A lawsuit filed by his trustee and friend Michael Skidmore two years ago seeks damages and claims California deserves a songwriting credit so that he can "take his place as an author of rock's greatest song."
The lawsuit lists disputes over 16 other Led Zeppelin songs, many of which were settled by giving the complainant a songwriting credit and royalties, including classics such as "Whole Lotta Love" and "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You."
Admiral Sun Jianguo (R), vice chief of staff of China's People's Liberation Army (PLA), meets with Ng Eng Hen, Singapore's Defense Minister, on the sidelines of the 14th Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore puma rihanna suede creepers , on May 29, 2015. Photo: Xinhua
The Shangri-La Dialogue, widely recognized as the most prestigious defense and security summit in Asia-Pacific, kicked off on Friday in Singapore, with defense chiefs aiming to discuss regional security challenges amid rising tensions in the South China Sea.
This year's dialogue will focus on four key themes, namely the threat of religious extremism, dynamics between major powers puma rihanna noir creepers , political instability in Asian countries, and transnational challenges arising from disasters and cyber security threats, according to Singaporean defense minister Ng Eng Hen.
Admiral Sun Jianguo, deputy chief of staff of the People's Liberation Army, heads the Chinese delegation and will elaborate on China's foreign and defense policies in his keynote speech.
As a major world economic engine, the regional security situation in the Asia-Pacific is highly significant. This year's dialogue attracted defense chiefs from 26 countries, including US and Japan.
Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that China has become the second largest economy in the world and the largest or second largest trading partner of nearly every country in the Asia-Pacific region. "So far China's rise has been peaceful within the established international order. The key to this continuing is the US-China relationship."
He believes the Sino-US relationship is not a zero-sum game puma rihanna noir et dore , saying that there are elements of competition as well as many interdependencies and opportunities for mutual benefit.
Other countries in the Asia-Pacific region also play a role in the regional power balance. For instance, India is emerging as a major player in Asia, Lee said.
Tensions in the South China Sea, which loomed large at last year's dialogue and caused heated exchanges, were expected to again be one of the highlights this year.
During a bilateral meeting with Vietnamese deputy defense minister Nguyen Chi Vinh Friday, Sun expressed hope that Vietnam would have clear understanding about the motives of countries outside the region trying to meddle in the South China Sea issue and properly handle disputes.
Vinh said that Vietnam would like to address the issue and exchange ideas with China in a "comradely way" and settle disputes through peaceful negotiation to secure regional stability.
Sun also presented China's stance on the South China Sea issue during meetings wit.
