|LIMA， Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- Peru could attract as much as 50 billion U.S. dollars in investment as the host of the upcoming 2016 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leader's meeting next week， a leading researcher said.
Fernando D'Alessio， director of the Centrum research center at the Pontifical Catholic University in Lima， said the Peruvian government has to use this event to attract more investment.

The new book， which will be offered as a present to important attendees to the meeting， seeks to showcase Peru's socio-economic situations and its potential business opportunities. It was co-developed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC).
"Our intention is to put the eyes of the world， especially the leaders of the 21 APEC member economies， onto the options in our country， putting an emphasis on the most highlighted productive sectors， which drive our economic growth，" he said.
According to D'Alessio， the Peruvian market is becoming ever more attractive to foreign investors， especially in trade， mining， energy and tourism.
The 21 members of APEC account for 39 percent of the global population， 57 percent of global GDP and 49 percent of global trade.
ADDIS ABABA， Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Ethiopia has finalized preparations to commence new technology-supported payment and ticketing services for cross-regional public transit buses within the country.
The e-ticketing service， which is for transit buses to and from different parts of Ethiopia， will start as of December 10， 2016.
The Federal Transport Authority (FTA)， inspired by the advancements of the government billing system called "Lehulu"， is leading the launch of the new payment and ticketing service powered by Kifya Financial Technology Plc.
Lehulu is a unique and unified utility billing system introduced under a public-private partnership among Kifya， the Ethiopian Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT)， the Ethiopian Electric Utility， the Addis Ababa Water and Sewerage Authority， and Ethio Telecom.
The new platform dubbed， "Yene Guzo"， which literally means "My Trip"， has been developed to make the public cross-regional bus service easier so that customers travel and connect with loved ones at ease.
The new "Yene Guzo" payment instrument has been developed by Kifya Financial Technology Plc in collaboration with the FTA to make cross-regional transit simpler and more convenient through accessible point-of-sale locations.
In a joint press conference on Tuesday here in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa， officials from the FTA， Kifya Financial Technology plc， and the Bus Associations， told reporters that the new payment and ticketing service would address the difficulties and inconveniences that customers come across while having the bus services with the current system.
In addition to convenient purchase points， the joint press statement says that the service will allow customers to book and purchase bus tickets weeks in advance of their travel dates， which reduces costs associated with traveling to ticketing areas and eliminates the uncertainty of departing at the desired date and time.
The service， which is to be started with five terminals in Addis Ababa on December 10， will be available in all Lehulu centers in the near future， according to Kassahun Hailemariam， FTA Director General.
Being overweight or obese is linked to a higher risk of dying prematurely than being normal weight and the risk rises sharply as the extra pounds pile on Cheap Air Max 90 Online , scientists said on Wednesday.
In findings contradicting the "obesity paradox", which had suggested a possible survival advantage to being overweight, researchers said excess body weight now causes 1 in 5 of all premature deaths in America and 1 in 7 in Europe.
"On average Cheap Air Max Online , overweight people lose about one year of life expectancy, and moderately obese people lose about three years of life expectancy," said Emanuele Di Angelantonio from Britain's University of Cambridge Cheap Nike Air Max 1 Shoes , who co-led the research.
The results also showed fat men are at particular risk.
"This is consistent with previous observations that obese men have greater insulin resistance, liver fat levels and diabetes risk than women," Di Angelantonio said.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 1.3 billion adults worldwide are overweight and a further 600 million are obese. The prevalence of adult obesity is 20 percent in Europe and 31 percent in North America.
The negative health effects of excess body weight and its link to chronic illnesses such as diabetes Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Shoes , heart disease, stroke, respiratory disease and cancer have been well documented. But recent studies suggesting people who are fat may not have lower survival rates have led to confusion about whether obesity kills Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes , or just causes bad health.
This study, published in The Lancet medical journal, looked at data from more than 10.6 million people involved in 239 large studies in 32 countries over 45 years. A combined 1.6 million deaths were recorded across these studies Cheap Air Max 1 Shoes , in which participants were followed for an average of 14 years.
The researchers excluded current or former smokers, those with chronic diseases at the beginning of the study, and any who died in the first five years of follow-up. This left 4 million adults to analyze.

The WHO defines BMI 18.5-25 as normal Cheap Air Max 90 Shoes , 25-30 as overweight, 30-35 as moderately obese a.
