RIO DE JANEIRO, May 29 (Xinhua) -- It is called the Olympic Village but Olympic City might be a more fitting name.


Almost 18,000 athletes and officials will call Rio de Janeiro's Olympic village home during the Olympic Games in August and the Paralympic Games in September.


Rio 2016 organizers say it will be the largest number of residents ever housed at an Olympic village.


In addition, some 13,000 staff and volunteers will work around the clock to attend to every beck and call of the city's distinguished guests.


Located in Barra da Tijuca, next to Olympic Park in Rio's southwest, the Olympic village will comprise 31 high-rise buildings and 3,604 apartments.


It will also feature a shopping center, banks, medical clinic, gymnasium, post office, beauty salon and shops selling licensed products.


A 200,000 square-meter recreation zone for athletes will boast a lounge area, games room, green areas, a bicycle track and swimming pools.


A 24-hour bus service will also circulate within the village grounds, stopping at every condominium.


The restaurant will be big enough to house a Boeing 747 jumbo jet and will serve an estimated 60,000 meals a day.


According to Olympic village director Mario Cilenti, construction work at the complex has been completed and 70% of the apartments have been furnished.


By the middle of July, the village condominiums will boast some 19,000 beds, 19,650 wardrobes, 11,152 air conditioners, 120,580 towels, 70,200 sheets and 19,000 quilts.


A novelty will be the absence of refrigerators in the apartments. Instead all buildings have been fitted with machines that dispense free cold drinks.


Each apartment block will also feature an ice machine, TV room, computer and printing services, and 24-hour reception with concierge.


"We've tried to cover all bases," Cilenti told the Globo newspaper. "It may seem like nonsense but the showers, for example, are a little taller. When we open the village doors, the athletes will begin to tell the world everything via social media. We want to make the best possible impression."


The village will undergo health and safety inspections before its scheduled opening on July 18. The first athletes are due to arrive six days later.


According to Cilenti, "small adjustments" will be made to accommodate Paralympic athletes, who will start arriving on August 28.


He added that the staff and volunteers would be the village's most important asset during the Games.


"The big difference with Rio, apart from the city's beauty, is the warmth of the people," Cilenti said. "That is what will make the experience unique and something that athletes are not going to forget."

Selecting and decorating the Christmas tree is one of our most valued Yuletide traditions. Of all the symbols we associate with the holiday season, few are more recognizable than the Christmas tree. We take great care in selecting a beautiful, fragrant evergreen to place in our homes or businesses. We watch with delight as our kids hang ornaments, often as early as the day after Thanksgiving. We attend civic Christmas tree lightings in small towns and large cities alike. And, of course, on Christmas Eve we fill with anticipation as we wait for Santa to deliver the goods.

It all starts with the selection process, however. If, like millions of traditionalists everywhere, you've made the decision to trim a real tree versus an artificial one, your first step is to decide where you'll procure the evergreen and what type of tree you want.

While you can obtain a cutting permit and venture into a public forest yourself to down your tree, that may not be the safest or most efficient way to go. Today, most consumers opting for live trees visit a commercial Christmas tree farm or nursery, or they purchase one from a market vendor who has had the tree shipped from a nurseryfarm.

Often, choices abound. Fir, spruce, pine, cedar and cypress all are popular varieties. Typically, a fir is considered the "true" Christmas tree. But the fact of the matter is that there are different species of fir trees and there truly is no right or wrong choice, no "official" Christmas tree. For example, a Colorado Blue Spruce serves as the National Christmas Tree outside the White House. Inside the White House, however, a variety of trees have been used over the years. There is no preferred presidential evergreen.

According to The National Christmas Tree Association (NCTA), the 10 most popular Christmas trees grown and sold in the United States are as follows, in order:

- 1. Fraser Fir
- 2. Douglas Fir
- 3. Balsam Fir
- 4. Colorado Blue Spruce
- 5. Scotch Pine
- 6. Eastern Red Cedar
- 7. White Spruce
- 8. Eastern White Pine
- 9. White Fir
- 10. Virginia Pine

While not in the Top 10 in terms of popularity, the Leyland Cypress is a good choice for individuals who suffer from allergies but still want a real tree for Christmas, according to the NCTA.

When choosing the tree that works best for your family, you'll want to take several things into consideration - beginning with the tree's size. Know the dimensions of the space into which you hope to place your tree. How high is the ceiling? How wide is the area? Take along a tape measure so that you can be certain the tree you've chosen will fit.

Look for a green tree with no (or very few) brown needles.

Take a good look at the bottom of the tree's "trunk" to ensure it is both sturdy and straight. If it is knotted or curved it may not fit into your base - then you've purchased and hauled a useless tree.
