RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- Michael Phelps said on Friday that he was grateful for the chance to finish his glittering career on his own terms after setting a new Olympic record in Rio.

The 31-year-old became the first swimmer to win the same event at four consecutive Olympics when he claimed the gold medal in the men's 200m individual medley late on Thursday.

""I'm just happy to be able to finish the way I wanted to,"" Phelps told a packed news conference. ""This has been a very special meet for me so far to finish my career.""

Thursday's victory was Phelps' 22nd Olympic gold medal as he continues to extend his record as the most successful Olympian of all time.

The 31-year-old has now won each of his four finals in Rio so far: the 200m butterfly, the 4x100m freestyle, the 4x200m freestyle and the 200m individual medley.

On Friday he will compete in the final of the 100m butterfly and he is expected to also take part in the 4x100m medley relay.

""I don't know what to say. It's been a hell of a career,"" Phelps said. ""I said to Ryan [Lochte], 'Man how did we did we do all of these events in 2008 [at the Beijing Olympics]?' My body is in pain. My legs are hurting. I'm tired. Some of my friends have sent some inspirational text messages that have helped.

""The last 50 metres I forced myself to stay under water and spun my wheels as fast as I could.""

BEIJING Authentic Brian Gibbons Jersey , Dec.21 (Xinhuanet) -- Stars have walked the red carpet for the premiere of Chinese film ""Mr. Six"" in Beijing.

Feng Xiaogang, who won the ""Best Actor"" award at the Golden Horse Film Festival a month ago, was joined by director Guan Hu, actress Xu Qing, and actors Wu Yifan and Li Yefeng.

A number of famous actors and actresses who have appeared in Xiaogang's movies, including Fan Bingbing and Ge You, also showed up to support the film at the premiere.

This is the second time that Feng played a lead role in a movie and it might be his last.

After he received the ""Best Actor"" award he said that he would quit acting in movies.

""Today's premiere makes me think about the premieres I attended for my former movies. It has been two years since I directed movies. This time, I'm very honored to play in 'Mr. Six,' directed by Guan Hu. I really appreciate this experience and this premiere.""

The film is a modern tale of Mr Six, a middle aged former kingpin who reigned over the Beijing streets for years.

As he lives in a world that is bound to be destroyed by modernity, the film portrays the battle between him and a much younger drag-racing street gang leader, played by Wu Yifan.

Wu said the most challenging part of making the film for him was the pressure of acting with Feng.

""Actually, this kind of stubborn and honest person exist in all walks of life, but I think the perfect person to play Mr. Six is Feng Xiaogang. In terms of life experience and temperament, director Feng is the perfect person to play Mr. Six.""

""Mr Six"" is set to hit Chinese theaters on December 24th.

SANAA, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- The international medical group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said a rocket hit its clinic in northern Yemen on Sunday, killing three and wounded 10 others.

""A rocket landed in MSF-sponsored health center in Razeh area in northern Saada province today, killing three people and injured 10 others,"" the group said in a statement on its twitter account.

The statement did not reveal who is behind the rocket attack.

It was another attack on MSF health facility in the same province, which is the stronghold of Shiite Houthi fighters who are fighting Saudi-backed Internationally recognized government, after October air strikes hit a hospital run by MSF in Haydan district.

The impoverished Arab country was plunged into violence in September 2014 when the Shiite Houthi group stormed the country's capital Sanaa, driving President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi into exile.

The conflict soon turned into an all-out civil war between pro-government forces and Houthi group backed by troops loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. A Saudi-led Arab coalition later intervened, vowing to restore Hadi's legitimacy.

The almost daily air raids by the Saudi-led alliance and the ground battles have killed thousands of Yemeni civilians and forced many more to flee their homes.

" Medicaid and Medicare are essential programs for practicing physicians, members of the American Medical Association, and the entire nation. The programs were developed in 1965 to assist certain categories of individuals with their medical costs. Today, Medicaid provides coverage to over 50 million Americans while Medicare aids over 45 million. These numbers make Medicaid and Medicare the largest source of medical funding in our nation.

Being curious about the programs, I completed some research on their general information. The basics are described in this article. After reading through each program description, you will see how different and important Medicaid and Medicare are.


Medicaid is a program designed to assist US individuals and families that fall into certain eligible categories. Although the main qualifying category is low income, it is not the defining factor. For instance, many poverty stricken individuals cannot receive Medicaid due to other qualifying aspects. The other eligibility requirements include measures like your age, pregnancy status, citizenship, and disability like blindness.

The Medicaid program is funded by both the state and federal government. The funding, program name, and process requirements can differ from state to state. The states administer their own program but receive a percentage of federal funds under the notion that they must adhere to the federal requirements .
