After a disappointing performance in 2018, China’s economy appears to be stabiliz

ing. In the first quarter of 2019, GDP growth, at 6.4 percent year-on-year, matched that of the previous quarter. But grow

th in industrial production exceeded expectations, expanding by 6.5 percent year-on-year (and by 8.5 percent in Mar

Mikaela Shiffrin extends record run as Marcel Hirscher hints

  She’s ski racing’s undoubted new queen, but Mikaela Shiffrin finished the

slalom season in regal fashion with victory in the final race in Andorra.

  The 24-year-old clinched her 16th win of a record-breaking season

Saturday to take her tally to 59 World Cup titles overall.

  The victory was also her 40th slalom win to equal the record of Swedish great

Ingemar Stenmark, who heads the all-time list with 86 World Cup wins.

  Overall champion Shiffrin, who topped the slalom standings from Slovakia’s P

etra Vlhova and Swiss Wendy Holdener,

is hot favorite to clinch the giant slalom crystal globe Sunday.

  The American has a 97-point lead over Vlhova, with 100 points available to the winner in Andorra.

  Shiffrin, who passed Vreni Schneider’s mark of 14 wins in a season

earlier this month, could become the first skier — mal

e or female — to win the World Cup title in overall, slalom, giant slalom and the

faster super-G discipline in the same season.

  She secured a third straight World Cup overall crown earlier this season and first super-G c

rystal globe to add to a fourth consecutive slalom world title in Sweden last month. She also won super-G gold in Are.

Mocking O’Rourke’s gestures might seem a frivolous at a time

  of national political angst and with a heavy duty policy debate already under way. But Trump is an expert at trivializing and belittling opponents, to de

tract from the gravity of their arguments and to feed the conservative media machine.

  His diagnosis of Jeb Bush’s “low energy” four years ago established a narrative about the former Florida gove

rnor’s campaign that hinted at a grain of truth. The one-time GOP front-runner could never recover.

  Trump vs. Brexit — and Obama

  At one point in the meeting Tump, said he wasn’t going to “comment on Bre

xit,” but characteristically unable to constrain himself, could barely leave the topic alone.

  At the start of his meeting, Trump welcomed Varadkar, and poin

ting out that his visitor was in a difficult position over Britain’s tortured attempts to comp

lete its withdrawal from the European Union, which could harm Ireland’s peace and prosperity.

Talks can produce fresh progress toward a dea ina Daily editorial

It is encouraging that after the deputy-level meetings on Monday and Tuesday

to work out the technical details for an agr

eement — including a mechanism for enforcing any deal — the face-to-face discussions being conducted between d

ecision-makers from both countries are being held amid a general air of optimism.

The negotiations are being led by Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and US Treasury Secr

etary Steven Mnuchin, whose cordial discussions in Washington on Jan 30 and 31 raised hopes that the two s

ides are genuinely doing their utmost to reach an agreement ahead of the March 1 deadline when US tariffs on $

200 billion worth of imports from China are set to rise to 25 percent from 10 percent.

But there are still obstacles to be overcome, and no one should underestimate how daunting a task the two s

ides face trying to resolve all the differences that have long existed between them in one clean sweep.

When the dough has formed, dust your working surface with

h flour and dust your hands again. Transfer the mixture over and continue to knead it until its surface becomes smo

oth, this should take about 10 minutes. Let it rest. After about 4-5 hours, kneed it again. You’re ready to go!

How to roll the perfect dumpling wrapper?

Take the dough and roll it out into a long sausage shape. Using a knife, cut it into simi

lar sized pieces, roughly about 2 inches in length. Press each one into a rough circle.

The trick is never to let go of the wrapper while your rolling. It feels counter-int

uitive, but hold onto the top of the wrapper, use the rolling pin in an upward mot

ion towards the center. Move the dough around and keep rolling until you have a thin, circular wrapper.

Alternatively, you can pick pre-rolled wrappers from your local shop or Chinese supermarket.
