GENEVA nike air force 270 ream red for sale , Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Though nearly half the world's population is now online, some 3.9 billion people still do not have access to the Internet, rendering an ever growing digital gap worldwide, a latest UN report on broadband Internet says on Thursday.

The report, the State of Broadband 2017: Broadband Catalyzing Sustainable Development, estimates by the end of 2017 nike air force 270 black purple for sale , some 3.58 billion people are to be online, equivalent to some 48 percent of the global population, up from 3.4 billion people or 45.9 percent at the end of 2016.

As nearly half the world's population is now connected, the attention has now shifted to where people still remain unconnected.

In the developing world, Internet penetration is projected to reach 41.3 percent by the end of 2017, up from 39 percent by end 2016 nike air force 270 carnivore for sale , according to International Telecommunication Union (ITU) estimates, making Internet user penetration in developing countries unlikely to reach 50 percent in a similar timeframe. In comparison, Internet penetration in developed countries is to reach 81 percent, with the world average at 48 percent.

In the least developed countries, in particular, Internet user penetration is projected to reach only 17.5 percent in 2017 nike air force 270 medium olive mens for sale , up from 15.6 percent in 2016, meaning it's highly unlikely that relevant targets in the UN sustainable development goals will be achieved within the timeframe of 2020.

Down to specific regions, around 62 percent of all people not online are residing in the Asia-Pacific region, followed by Africa with 17.8 percent. This is pertinent to the largest demographic distribution in the Asia-Pacific, where China and India, top two countries in population nike air force 270 medium olive for sale , contribute more than 362 million and 660 million people respectively to the unconnected population worldwide. It's also noteworthy that China continues to top the world's Internet market with around 700 million Internet users, followed by India with 355 million.

Meanwhile, the report shows that men continue to outnumber women in terms of Internet usage worldwide, despite the vice versa situation in the Americas. Recent studies, though, show the disparities in gender access are becoming wider in developing countries nike air force 270 atmosphere shoes for sale , especially in Africa.

"Broadband is crucial to connecting people to the resources needed to improve their livelihoods, and to the world achieving the Sustainable Development Goals," said ITU Secretary-General Zhao Houlin.

"The goals for education, gender equality and infrastructure include bold targets for information and communication technology. The State of Broadband 2017 report outlines how broadband is already contributing to this and makes valuable recommendations for how it can increase this contribution into the future," he added.

Promoting investment in broadband connectivity from a broad range of sectors, the report notes nike air force 270 sherbert for sale , can help achieve the full potential of these technologies and bring the world closer to the goal of an inclusive digital society accessible by all.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Supporters of Brazil's suspended president Dilma Rousseff on Tuesday blocked roads to the city of Sao Paulo in protest of her impeachment process.

Demonstrators set up roadblocks by setting fire to tires along six of the city's major access routes, and carried banners that read "Temer Out," in reference to the interim president who has taken place during the proceedings.

Should Rousseff be impeached in a Senate vote on Wednesday, Michel Temer would be instated to complete her term through the end of 2018.

The protesters were members of Brazil's Landless Worker's Movement (MST), which backs Rousseff and the left-leaning coalition led by the Workers' Party (PT) that brought her to power.

Authorities arrested four people, including the driver of a truck loaded with tires that were to be used to put up another roadblock.

In a statement posted on social networks, Guilherme Boulos, the leader of the MST, said "today's actions are an expression of the resistance against the coup d'etat underway in Brazil."

Rousseff and her supporters say she has not committed any crimes, and charges of alleged fiscal wrongdoing have been fabricated by the conservative opposition, which lost 2014 presidential elections, to seize power.

During the fourth day of the trial Monday, police used tear gas to disperse another protest by Rousseff sympathizers.

HO CHI MINH CITY, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam' s Becamex Binh Duong managed to make a draw of 1-1 with China's Jiangsu Suning in the opening match of AFC Champions League 2016 on Tuesday in the Vietnamese province of Binh Duong.

During the game, Binh Duong deployed the tactical lineup of 4-3-3, while Jiangsu used the lineup of 4-2-3-1.

Right after the starting whistle of Iranian referee Alireza Faghani nike air force 270 mens black silver for sale , Chinese players launched their first attack from the right wing. Then, their rivals' first attack stemmed from the left side.

In the 11th minute, Jiangsu forwarder Alex Teixeira delivered a shot just outside the penalty area, but Vietnamese goalie Bui Tan Truong snapped the ball easily.

One minute later, latching onto a pass from former Man City striker Joao Alves, unmarked Chinese mid-fielder Ji Xiang blasted home from close range nike air force 270 metallic black for sale , defeating the Vietnamese goalie.

In the 18th minute, from the touch-line from the right wing, Ji Xiang threw the ball over Joao Alves for Jiangsu mid-fielder Ramires Sa.
