ACCRA, April 20 (Xinhua) -- The energy gap between Africa and the rest of the world is widening, according to the 2015 African Progress Report, an annual flagship publication of the Africa Progress Panel, released here Wednesday.

The report said the per capita energy use in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) 15 years ago was 30 per cent of the level in South Asia, compared to 24 percent now.

Africa's grid has a power generation capacity of 90 gigawatts (GW) and half of it is located in South Africa, with electricity consumption in Spain exceeding that of the whole of SSA.

Excluding South Africa, per capita consumption in the region averages around 162 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year. This compares with a global average of 7,000 kWh, the report notes, adding: "SSA is desperately short of electricity."

The report added that two in every three people in the region, or around 621 million people in total, have no reliable access to electricity.

"Access to clean, non-polluting cooking facilities is even more restricted. Almost four in five rely for cooking on solid biomass, mainly fuel wood and charcoal. As a result, 600,000 people in the region die each year of household air pollution," according to the report.

The international community has set the goal of achieving universal access to modern energy by 2030, but the report said SSA was not on track to achieve that target.

"Despite 15 years of sustained economic growth, power shortages, restricted access to electricity and dependence on biomass for fuel are undermining efforts to reduce poverty," the report emphasized.

On current trends, it said it expected Africa until 2080 to achieve universal access to electricity.

The report highlights the socio-economic implications of the energy deficit on the continent, saying energy sector bottlenecks and power shortages cost the region 2-4 per cent of gross domestic product annually, undermining job creation and investment.

Companies in Ghana and Tanzania are losing 15 percent of the value of sales as a result of power outages while most of Africa's school children attend classes without access to electricity. In Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Malawi and Niger, over 80 percent of primary schools lack access to electricity, the report said.

BEIJING Under Armour Boys Shoes Sale , July 2 (Xinhuanet) -- The Ministry of Education is tightening up a preferential policy that awards bonus points in the national college entrance exams, or gaokao, to students with exceptional ability in the sciences and sports, amid recent worries about abuse of the system.

The ministry is reducing the number of slots for such students and limiting the events that entitle them to the bonus points starting with this year's college admission period Under Armour Mens Shoes Sale , according to a statement posted on its website on Monday.

"The new policy is meant to ensure the equity of college admissions by reducing the threat of fraud and abuse," said Chu Zhaohui, a senior researcher at the National Institute of Education.

Education analysts expect the amendment to help boost transparency, following a scandal involving the athletic achievement certificates of a group of students in Benxi Under Armour Womens Shoes Sale , Liaoning province.

Eighty-seven out of more than 1,000 graduates from Benxi Senior Middle School who took the entrance exam in June had national-level athletics certificates that are good for 10 extra points, Xinhua News Agency reported.

Many viewed that number as suspiciously high - roughly equal to the total 89 certificates given to students in another five cities in Liaoning combined.

Twenty-five of the student athletes also received extra points for swimming skills even though their school didn't have swimming facilities.

Zhu Tiejun, director of the city's college admission office Under Armour Shoes Sale , confirmed with Xinhua that all the student athletes' certificates were legitimate. But the reassurance failed to assuage public concern over the issue.

"It's easy for some resourceful parents to help their children pass the certification tests organized by local sports authorities without too much supervision. I've long heard about it," said Yu Liuyang, a student who enrolled at Beijing Sport University with 10 extra points for basketball talent.

Under the ministry's latest amendment, the number of sports recognized for the bonus has been reduced to 17 this year from 70 previously. It accepts popular activities such as basketball Under Armour Youth Shoes , soccer and other athletics. Seventeen provinces will reduce the bonus points awarded from 20 points to 10 or below, while another eight jurisdictions will stop offering the extra points to student athletes altogether.

The preferential policy for winners of academic Olympiads, including math, physics Under Armour Kids Shoes , chemistry and biology, has also been amended.

Apart from students who are selected by the national Olympiad training team who will represent China in the international Olympiad, other winners at the national or regional level can no longer gain admission to college without taking the gaokao.

All provinces and regions across China also canceled extra points for regional winners. Seven provinces canceled extra points for national winners and 17 provinces reduced the extra points for national winners from 20 points to 10 or below.

The preferential policy was launched in 2000 to encourage students to develop their talents in both mind and body.

In 2010, the Ministry of Education also released a notice with several other ministries Under Armour Boys Shoes , requiring all provinces and regions to review and reduce the events that offer extra points to students with science or sports talent.

After the new policy took effect this year, the number of students taking advantage of extra points dropped from 50,000 to 30,000.

Xiong Bingqi Under Armour Mens Shoes , deputy director of the 21st Century Education Research Institute, said the policy is a positive move. B.
