LONDON, June 28 (Xinhua) -- A study has found that alcohol marketing was seen by soccer fans almost once a minute during the England and Wales group stage matches of Euro 2016.

During broadcasts of the five group matches played by the two countries -- including the game between them that ended in a 2-1 victory for England -- pitch-side adverts for the tournament's sponsor, Carlsberg, appeared 392 times, according to a research by UK charity Alcohol Concern.

This equated to an alcohol-related advert being shown an average 78.4 times per game, or once every 72 seconds.

""The volume of alcohol marketing in sport, especially in football, which is popular with children and younger people, is enormous,"" the charity's director of campaigns Tom Smith said in a press release on Monday.

""Alcohol marketing drives consumption, particularly in under-18s and sport should be something which inspires active participation and good health, not more drinking,"" Smith warned.

Figures showed that over 14 million people watched England's opening match with Russia while at least 9 million watched England's showdown with Wales alive.

The charity estimated that 14 percent of the audience were likely under the age of 18. Some schools across Wales arranged screenings for pupils for the England-Wales ""derby game.""

""We need to protect the younger generation, which is why the government needs to implement the phased removal of alcohol marketing from sport, as it has done with tobacco,"" Smith said.

French laws ban alcohol brands from sponsoring sporting events and advertising on television, but the charity said the beer company replaced their brand name on pitch-side digital boards with one of their well-known slogans and used their usual brand font.

A spokesman for Carlsberg responded by saying the company took great care to make sure the vast majority of viewers of the marketing were above the legal drinking age.

""Our internal and industry codes clearly stipulate that our marketing communication are designed to prevent any primarily underage appeal,"" the spokesman added.

he latest move of the Beijing municipal government to impose fees for electric vehicle (EV) charging services has sparked heated debate about questions ranging from the legitimacy to the pricing.

The Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform has released new rules for electricity usage and charging service fees, with the latter calculated based on electricity consumption.

For every one kilowatt hour of electricity Nike Air Huarache Womens , the upper-limit is set at 15 percent of the maximum retail price per liter of No. 92 gasoline in Beijing. EV charging companies are allowed to fix their own price standards within this range.

The new rules will take effect from June 1.

The commission responded that the move is aimed at maintaining the cost advantage of using EVs. Moreover, the introduction of service fees could encourage more companies to enter the charging service market while increased supply would be conducive to a more balanced market.

Experts also say the government pricing standard will play an important role in regulating the charging service market.

The previous scheme, under which power grids did not charge fees and car charging companies set their own pricing standards Nike Air Huarache Mens , dampened power company enthusiasm for participating in the program while the fees charged by those companies could be even higher than the government standard, they said, adding that a uniform standard set by the government would be good for the long-term development of the sector.

The charge also makes people doubt whether China will still encourage the use of electric vehicles.

Before the government released the standard Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra , most of Beijing's charging poles were available to users free of charge, with only a small minority of them subject to service fees.

Calculations based on current gasoline prices indicate that EVs still have a cost advantage over conventionally-powered vehicles by a large margin, with the cost for use just 53 percent of that for vehicles powered by conventional fuels. For users who charge their cars at home Nike Air Huarache Ultra , there are no service fees at all. Therefore, spending on charging will not increase by much.

Since the end of March, Beijing had built approximately 7 Nike Air Huarache Premium ,500 charging poles and five stations, with the ratio of EV numbers in circulation to the number of charging poles standing at about 1.6:1. The city remains a leader in terms of the construction of car charging facilities in China.

In addition, State Grid's Beijing branch has built 280 charging terminals as well as 5 Nike Air Huarache Run ,242 charging poles and is planning to construct charging networks with a service radius of 5 kilometers within the Fifth Ring Road. Other companies are also jumping on the bandwagon. Sinopec and PetroChina, for example, are also piloting the setting up of charging facilities at their gas stations.

Experts said resolving problems that are restricting the development of new energy vehicles and making them affordable Nike Air Huarache , convenient and pleasing would help usher in a real EV market for.
