Hainan free to create 上海419论坛foreign education ties

World-class overseas universities are welcome to run schools in cooperation with Chinese inst

itutions or establish independent educational services of their own in Hainan province on a pilot basis, acc 上海419论坛女神会所

ording to a circular issued by the Ministry of Education and Hainan’s provincial government recently.

 上海419论坛It said the country will target the tropical island for international education inn

ovation, deepen its educational reform in an all-around way and further open th

e sector to make Hainan a vivid example of open and innovative development of the educational sector. 上海419论坛

Hainan, which is developing the country’s newest and largest free trade zone, will be a national pilot area where a ne

w, open system for running schools will be set up, in addition to a joint examination an

 上海419论坛女神会所d approval mechanism for overseas joint ventures and cooperation projects, the circular said.

It added that as long as risks are controlled, the island province will be encouraged to set up international high scho

ols and kindergartens on a pilot basis to implement international education.

The document also noted that when conditions mature, overseas engineering universities an 上海419论坛

d vocational colleges will be allowed to run pilot schools independently in Hainan, which will also explor

e allowing leading overseas business conglomerates to develop educational services on their own.

 上海419论坛女神会所The new policy also gives a green light to overseas institutions to establish independent Sino-

foreign medical and health services in Hainan, according to the circular.

Furthermore, the pilot plan will encourage leading Chinese and foreign institutions of higher learning and scie

ntific research centers to develop a cluster of higher learning institutions and syne 上海419论坛

rgetic platforms which will integrate production, teaching and scientific research in Hainan.

An education innovation consortium – which combines research branches, laboratories and incubation centers that focus 上海419论坛女神会所

on such key areas as ocean economy, tropical agriculture, healthcare, tourism

and cultural innovation – will receive government support, according to the circular.

More than 上海419论坛s into its orbit, Tiangong II has out

ed its two-year designed life span. The spacecraft helped to pave the way for China’s future manned space station, according to the agency.

Wang Ya’nan, editor-in-chief of Aerospace Knowledge magazine, said Tiangong II c

上海419论坛ontributed a great deal to China’s efforts to build its own space station as it accommodated astronauts’ sta

y and verified life-support and in-orbit refueling technologies, all of which are essential to running a space station.

China plans to start putting together its first manned space station around 2020. It is expected to be fully operational aro上海419论坛女神会所

und 2022 and to operate for about 15 years, according to the China Academy of Space Technology.

In 2024, it would become the world’s only space station if t上海419论坛

he United States-led International Space Station is retired that year as planned.

The multimodule station, named Tiangong, will be mainly composed of three parts-a core module attached to two s

上海419论坛pace labs-and have a combined weight of more than 90 tons, the academy said.

The scientific communities of China and the United States still have room for exchanges and cooperation despite ongo

ing trade and technology disputes between the two countries, a senior science policy researcher said.上海419论坛

Stability, development, exchanges and global integration will remain C

hina’s top priorities in the coming decade. Hence, it is crucial for China and the US to respect, ratio

上海419论坛女神会所nally perceive and adjust to each other’s national needs, Pan Jiaofeng, president of the Chinese Academy of Sci

ences’ Institutes of Science and Development, told China Daily in an interview.

The scientific communities should also enhance mutual exchanges and integration of standards to jointly tackle glob上海419论坛

al issues including climate change, aging populations, energy and resources, and natural disasters, he said.

In recent years, China has seen substantial development in science and technol

上海419论坛女神会所ogy due to strong government planning and support, bigger investments, greater efforts from tech en

terprises and sweeping reforms tailored to the needs of researchers to unleash their full innovative potential.

China’s budget for research and development increased to 2.18 percent of its GDP l

ast year, reaching a record high of 1.96 trillion yuan ($285 billion), acc上海419论坛女神会所

ar increase last year in patent applications from Chinese innovators, amounting to 4.32 million at home and abroad

Zhu Zengyong, a resear上海419论坛 the Chinese Academy

 of Agricultural Sciences, said that with sharp declines in the supply of

pork in China, domestic pork consumption has declined since the second half of last year.

Zhu predicted a further decline in production and consu上海419论坛女神会所

上海419论坛mption this year, and a gap of 5 to 10 percent between supply and demand.

“As an alternative to pork, poultry will see a noticeable increase in

supply in the next two years, which will ease shortages in pork supplies,” he said.

Pork accounts for more than 60 percent of meat production in China上海419论坛

, said Xin Guochang, an information monitoring official at the ministry.

Authorities have been adapting swine fever controls and prevention measures since late last year to effectively contain the infec上海419论坛女神会所

tious disease, which has a high mortality rate for pigs but is not transmittable to humans, Xin said at the Gl

obal Pig Industry Conference hosted by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Beijing on Thursday.

上海419论坛For example, all hogs within 3 kilometers of farms where swine fever had been verified used to be slaughtered for dise

ase prevention and control. Now, more sophisticated calculations are made to determine the area targeted for s

laughter so that farmers without infected animals are more easily able to maintain production, he said.上海419论坛女神会所

The government has been transparent in disclosing information about swi

ne fever outbreaks, Xin said. “But it cannot be entirely ruled out that some pig farmers fa

上海419论坛女神会所iled to report outbreaks to authorities, according to regulations, for various reasons,” he added.

Li Shuilong, president of the China Meat Association, said that although African swine fever has caused serious damage to the

country’s pork sector, it has also provided a good opportunity for the domestic industry to upgrade operations an上海419论坛女神会所

d address problems such as poor sanitation conditions and overuse of vaccines and drugs.

This year also marks the上海419论坛女神会所ersary of the found

ding of the People’s Republic of China, which Chan said would attract more people to spread the festivities throughout the city.

上海419论坛The array of celebrations will also broaden and deepen Hong Kong resident’s knowledge about the nation, Cheung said on Sunday.

With the dual advantages given under “one country, two systems”, Cheung said, Hong Kong

has made great contributions to the country’s development, while the nation’s prosperity has brought benefits to the SAR.上海419论坛女神会所

Also attending the ceremony, He Jing, deputy director of the Liaison Office of the Centra

l People’s Government in the HKSAR, said that a powerful nation will provide more opportunities for Hong Kong.

Apart from the celebrations held by social groups, many citizens opted for other places to celebrate the return of the ci上海419论坛

ty to the motherland-the three barracks of the People’s Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison in Shek Kong, San Wai

and Ngong Shuen Chau. The barracks are expected to receive some 30,000 Hong Kong residents during the three-day open day event.上海419论坛

Visitors to the barracks can see combat performances and military demonstr

ations, as well as weapons and military equipment including armored scout cars and helicopters.

Unlike the two other barracks, Ngong Shuen Chau-the PLA’s naval base in Hong Kong-open

上海419论坛ed to the public on Sunday. High school student Zhong Yaoyu felt excited to be stepping into the barracks for the first time.

“The soldiers are friendly and I am proud of the country,” Zhong said.

This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho

上海419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium. At the packed venue, the then 25-year上海419论坛

-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

上海419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go

lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.上海419论坛

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc

k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo

rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”上海419论坛品茶微信

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget

her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong 上海419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young

bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m

usic styles. They come together and contribute t上海419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui

founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band

s emerged in the country while developing the上海419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band

Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.

Throughout her bachelor and doctorate years, she sp

nt her summers visiting many grassland.There are no hotels out on the plains, so Xin would often call at herdsme

n’s tents to ask for a meal. The herdsmen always welcomed her and offered her a place to sleep.上海419论坛

In 1998, Xin was recruited by Li Bo, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, to joi

上海419论坛n his grassland ecology remote sensing team to help build an observation and research station in Hulunbuir.

Xin was keen to start the work, but Li suddenly died six months into the project. After taking three months to ove

rcome her sorrow, Xin decided to finish Li’s vision to build the observation and research station at Hulunbuir.上海419论坛

Each year, when the grass began to grow in Ma

y, Xin would go to Hulunbuir, and only return when the grass had dried up in November.

上海419论坛女神会所She was named executive deputy head of the station in 2005, the first fe

male out of all the executives staffing the 53 wild scientific stations across China.

After years of observation and experiments on the Hulunbuir grasslands, Xin mapped out the key dir

ection for research there, filling in the gaps in analysis into meadow steppe ecosystems through observation and research.上海419论坛女神会所

She studied ecosystem modeling for her doctoral degree. By combining all the data he

r team had collected, Xin realized it could be used to guide herdsmen to better grazing pastures.

“As a 21-year-old I visited the Gannan grasslands. At 22, I went to the Qinghai-Tibet Platea上海419论坛女神会所

u. Aged 25 to 27 I visited the Songnen Plain, and at 28 I traveled to the grasslands in the mountain regions of sou

thern China. At the age of 29, I was in Hulunbuir,” Xin says. “Each grassland has its own personality.”上海419论坛女神会所

Field work on the grasslands involved a lot of driving, and Xin spent hours chatting with the driver and watching the road.

Andrew Chatzky wrote in a backgrounder published recently on the website of the US think tank.

While some are skeptical about the G20’s usefulness, they said, many

The G20 initially focused on broad macroeconomic policy, but ha

air and sustainable development, while the previous one in Germany addressed issues including corruption, mon

As part of the preparations for the Osaka G20 summit, the world’s leading think tanks

S has imposed s上海419论坛女神会所anctions on seven Russian oligarchs and 17 senior government officials, accusing them of “malign activity around the globe”.

Twelve companies owned by the oligarchs, the state arms exporter and a bank are also sanctioned.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the penalties targeted those profiting from Russia’s “corrupt system”.

The move was a response to Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential election, he said.

The sanctions are also being imposed because of the actions taken by

the Kremlin in Crimea, eastern Ukraine and Syria, Mr Mnuchin said in a statement on Friday.

He accused the Russian government of “malicious” cyber-activities and

said the sanctions would target “those who benefit from the Putin regime”.

“The Russian government operates for the disproportionate benefit of oligarchs,” he added.
