MOSCOW AH8050-701 Homme Nike Air Max 270 Volt Noir , Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- Russia's preparations for the FIFA World Cup 2018 have been going ahead of the schedule, FIFA president Sepp Blatter said Tuesday.

"Concerning the report I have received...Russia is far in advance," Blatter said when comparing Russia to Brazil on level of preparation of the tournament's infrastructure four years before the event.

He stressed the FIFA "unconditionally" supports Russia's hosting of the World Cup 2018 and the football association "still stands strong for" the games as it "trusts the country's people and its government."

Football could not only unite Russia but show the entire world that football is stronger than any protest movement, RIA Novosti news agency quoted Blatter as saying.

Blatter is participating in the meeting of the World Cup 2018 steering committee here supervised by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

As the emblem for the World Cup 2018 is to be unveiled late Tuesday night during a live television show, Blatter said he likes the emblem that represents "Russian heart and soul".

Putin in late August vowed not to let Russia's hosting of the games be threatened by western attempts to isolate Moscow.

The preparations for the event require the implementation of about 300 infrastructure projects in 11 host cities, as well as in 20 more cities included in the visitors' accommodation service program.

The overall cost of the World Cup 2018 is estimated at 20 billion U.S. dollars.

LONDON Homme Nike Air Max 270 Habanero Rouge Noir , April 24 (Xinhua) -- The world's largest annual music festival Thursday announced its 2014 line-up, with the global reach of classical music placed at the heart of its eight-week program.

BBC Proms director Roger Wright told Xinhua Thursday afternoon, "This year we are welcoming the largest number of international orchestras that there have ever been in the Proms."

"Alongside the groups that have become traditional and fairly regular visitors like the Berlin Philharmonic Homme Nike Air Max 270 Racer Bleu , Leipzig Gewandhaus, Cleveland Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic, and Budapest Festival Orchestra there are a whole group of orchestras which are part of our being able to celebrate an expansion of global western classical music," said Wright.

For the first time orchestras from Kazakhstan, Lapland Homme Nike Air Max 270 Noir Rouge , and South Korea will play, said Wright, joined by the first Chinese orchestra to play at the Proms.

"It's the China Philharmonic under music director Yu Long, and they will play a new piece composed by Chinese composer Chen Qigang for the trumpet," Wright added.

The anniversary of the First World War is prominent in the program. Wright said he had chosen pieces written by soldiers from the war, such as Vaughan Williams or George Butterworth Homme Nike Air Max 270 Royal Bleu Orange , who was killed in the war, as well as British composer Benjamin Britten's "War Requiem."

Celebrations for the 150th anniversary of German composer Richard Strauss's birth, and the 80th birthdays of two living British composers, Harrison Birtwistle and Peter Maxwell Davies will also be held during the festival.

Non-classical music will be featured too, with Paloma Faith and Rufus Wainwright giving proms, and The Pet Shop Boys perform the world premiere of their new piece Homme Nike Air Max 270 Midnight Marine , A Man from the Future, based on the life and work of Alan Turing.

There will also be a staged performance of the Shakespeare-inspired musical "Kiss Me, Kate" in its Proms debut.
