A new natural gas network in the Xinjiang Uygur auton上海后花园品茶微信
omous region is making life for residents like Hazret Mamut much more convenient.
“I used to go to the gas station to change the fuel tank when it was empty, which used to take 10 minutes of riding an electric sco上海后花园品茶微信

“Using natural gas costs less than 20 yuan ($2.90) every month for cooking,” Hazret added.上海后花园
Such convenience in Hazret’s life is due to a natural gas p

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.
For those who are concerned about China’s economic well-being, the first half-year fig
ures released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday may not be enough to relieve them of their worr上海419
ies, especially given the ongoing trade conflict with the United States and weakening global demand.
上海419After all, a 6.2 percent growth in the second quarter — although still within the gove
rnment’s target range of 6-6.5 percent for the year — was the weakest in nearly three decades.上海419
This, together with lukewarm trade readings released on Friday — exports fell 1.3 percent in June from a year earlier and imports dropped 7.3 percent — sugge
sts economic conditions are still severe and, with external uncertainties on the rise, the economy “is under new dow
上海419女神会所nward pressure”, as NBS spokesman Mao Shengyong said at a news conference.
But again, this is really a question of do you see the glass half empty or half full, given that
China remains one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies. While pessimists focus on the diffi
culties, optimists see the silver lining of the Chinese economy’s remarkable resilience given the headwinds it faces.上海419
For example, retail sales, a major gauge of consumption, surged 9.8 percent, much higher than the expected 8.5 percen
t and also the highest since March 2018. Many analysts attribute the progress to the central government’s ef
forts to boost domestic consumption — these range from massive tax cuts of nearly 2 trillion yuan ($291 billion) to the iss上海419女神会所
uance of 2.15 trillion yuan of special bonds by local governments for infrastructure construction.
上海419Other strong data, such as a 6.3-percent increase in industrial output an
d a 5.8-percent rise in January-June fixed asset investment, all indicate that the fund
amentals for steady growth remain unchanged and the government still has ample room for policy maneuvers.
Actually, once last month’s much-better-than-expected gains in retail上海419女神会所
sales, factory output and fixed-asset investment were announced, the market quickly cast its vot
上海419女神会所e of confidence in the Chinese economy. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended 0.4 percent up on Monday a
fter casting off losses that had pushed it down as much as 1.5 percent in the morning ahead of the data release.
Doctors in Hubei province have successfully transplanted kidneys
from a prematurely born donor baby into a 47-year-old woman suffering from kidney failure.娱乐地图女神会所
The donor weighed only 1.3 kilograms, the lightest kidney donor ever reported, Wuhan Union Hospital said on Wednesday.
娱乐地图The woman, surnamed Wang, from Duchang county, Jiangxi province, was diagnos
ed with uremia in June last year and transplant surgery performed a month later.
Without the transplant, she would have had to rely on blood dialysis for the rest of her life.娱乐地图女神会所
The kidneys used in the surgery were from a baby born prematurely
娱乐地图, whose parents decided to donate the organs after the infant died, the hospital said.
Following a year of follow-up treatment, the baby’s kidneys, which were between 3 and 4 centimeters long when tran娱乐地图
splanted, have grown to 6.9 cm and 7.6 cm in the patient’s body, closer to the usual size of 10 cm for an adult.
娱乐地图女神会所The two kidneys are functioning normally and Wang’s health has recovered, the hospital said.
Transplant surgeries using kidneys donated by infants are
very difficult compared with kidneys donated by adults. Generally, infants that weigh less th娱乐地图
an 5 kg are not considered as sources of organs for transplant surgeries abroad, the hospital said.
娱乐地图女神会所Wang Zhendi, a transplant surgeon in the hospital and the woman’s do
ctor, said the blood vessels and ureter, a tube that carries urine from the kidney to the ur
inary bladder, are very thin in infants’ kidneys. This makes precise surgery very difficult, with higher chances of post-surgery complications. It is also more di
fficult for such kidneys to function in an adult’s body as they are not fully developed.娱乐地图
“The less the weight of the donor, the slower the kidney recovers functioning in the body where it is transplanted,” he said.
Although an adult can survive with just one kidney, usually two ki娱乐地图女神会所
dneys are transplanted from an infant to improve the chances of a healthy outcome, he said.
The success of the surgery means sources for kidney transplant surgeries can be expanded to inclu娱乐地图
de infant donors. This will ease the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of patie
娱乐地图女神会所nts with terminal kidney disease waiting for transplant surgery in China, the hospital said.
In Wuhan Union Hospital alone, more than 500 registered patients wit
h kidney failure are waiting for suitable organs for transplantation, the hospital said.

The program, which matches students with common interests and hobbi

上海品茶微信女神会所”The program is actually a win-win situation for both parties. It’s the best opportunity for learning about new lang
uages and cultures,” Mohammad Rasheduzzaman, a student from Bangladesh studying at the university, said.

After that the student has to present a written application to continue in the program.
上海品茶微信女神会所A nationwide wave of arrests of immigrants facing deporta
tion will commence over the weekend, US President Donald Trump said on Friday, confi
rming that the plan, intended to discourage a surge of Central American migrants, was on track after a delay.
The operation is expected to target hundreds of families in 10 cities that have recentl上海品茶微信女神会所
y been ordered deported by an immigration court but have not yet left the country.
上海品茶微信Trump revealed the operation on Twitter last month and then
postponed it. It is unusual for the government to announce deportation operations ahead of time.
“People are coming into this country illegally, we are taking them out legally,” Trump tol上海品茶微信女神会所
d reporters on Friday, calling it a “major operation” that would mainly focus on removing criminals.
In a typical week, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrests thousands of immigrants who are staying in t
上海品茶微信he country illegally, according to government data. Most of those arrests are made without any advance publicity.
Immigrant advocates have said advance word of the weekend raids could help some of those targeted to evade arrest.
But the president, speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday, said he wa上海品茶微信女神会所
s not concerned that the advance notice could help targeted immigrants evade arrest.
“If the word gets out, it gets out,” he said.
Since Trump first spoke of the plan, a number of city mayors, nearly上海品茶微信
all Democrats, have repeated their long-standing policies of not cooperating with ICE
officials on deportations and have advertised helplines people can call to understand their rights.上海品茶微信女神会所
Democratic lawmakers, among others, have also sought to inform immigrants of their rights, telling them not to open their door
for ICE unless agents present a court-issued warrant, and not to say or sign anything before speaking with a lawyer.

As China launches garbage sorting work among cities at the prefecture l
evel and above this year, some wonder whether an opportunity to invest is presenting itself.
A listed job to inspect garbage sorting could have a salary of 400 yuan ($58.24) per day, and t上海千花网
here were 53 new registered garbage sorting companies by the last week of June according to news website 21jingji.com.
上海千花网品茶微信The sanitation market will be 200 billion yuan in the future, the website said, citing an industry insider.
As more cities carry out garbage sorting, demand for waste sorting store, collecti
on, transportation equipment and services will increase. Moreover, positions like waste sor
ter, inspector, project manager and sanitation engineer are currently common on recruitment websites.上海千花网
China’s solid waste clearance volume is only one-third of the US’ figure, and the marketizat
ion of the sanitation industry is less than 30 percent, the website asserted, citing Zhang Xiaowen,上海千花网品茶微信
deputy managing director of investment management department under Everbright Financial Holding Asset Management.
The market value of the US’ three listed garbage sorting companies — Waste Management,
Republic Service, and Waste Connections — surpasses $92 billion. Among these Waste Management is top, with a market value of $48.7 billion.
The Chinese authorities’ ramped-up efforts to promote high-qualit
y development in the new energy vehicle sector, reflected by the most recent re 上海会所品茶微信
lease of an updated list on NEVs to enjoy exemptions of vehicle and vessel tax, will further help boost the healthy de
上海会所velopment of the sector and also promote clean energy consumption, industry insiders said.
The vehicle and vessel tax, paid annually by car or ship owners, varies between hundre 上海会所
ds of yuan to thousands of yuan, depending on engine sizes and the capacity of vehicles or ships.
上海会所品茶微信According to the latest list of NEVs and small engine vehicles to enjoy vehicle and vessel tax cu
ts that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued recently on its website, vehicle and ve
ssel tax will be slashed completely for 444 types of NEVs and halved for 72 types of energy-saving vehicles. 上海会所
Moreover, the list has extended tax cuts to more NEVs compared with the previous list, and
上海会所品茶微信makes higher requirements on the performance of the NEVs to be included, such as lower power co
nsumption per 100 kilometers, the increased energy density of battery packs, and a higher cruising range, a
cording to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association. 上海会所品茶微信
“The new list mirrors the progress of China’s NEVs, especially in key perfo
上海会所rmance indicators, and such progress is driven by incentives from the Chinese authorities,” Cui said.
“It is obvious Chinese NEVs have been making remarkable progress in high-quality development, and this will continue.”

Strategy is helping institutions achieve better rankings at home and abroad
A veteran of such US universities as the University of Chicago and Yale University has become the first foreigner appointed by a Beij上海千花坊
ing university to a management position since the reform and opening-up policy was launched in 1978.
上海千花坊David Zupko was recently appointed deputy director of Tsinghua University’s global cooperation
and communication office after working at different universities in the United States for more than 20 years.
In 2017, when he was asked by the National Cultural Heritage Ad上海千花坊品茶微信
ministration if he would consider exhibiting his family collection in China, he agreed.
His sentiment was echoed by Wang Xudong, the then director of the Dunhuang Academ上海千花坊
y, who spent over a year contacting institutions abroad and around China to contribute to the exhibition.
上海千花坊品茶微信The Pritzker Art Collaborative brought 35 artifacts to the exhibition in Dunhuang. It is joined by key Chin
ese institutions, such as the National Museum of China, the Palace Museum and the Shaanxi History Mus
eum in Xi’an, as well as several other major overseas collections, including the Al Thani Collection owned by the Qatari ru上海千花坊
ling family, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and Hirayama Ikuo Silk Road Museum in Japan.
Abegg-Stiftung, a Swiss collection that mainly features textiles, dropped its “zero l上海千花坊品茶微信
oan policy” for the exhibition, opting in favor of cultural exchange and supplying 16 artifacts to the exhibition.
A hanging brocade with roundel featuring a pair of stags locking horns, on loan from Abegg-Stiftung, is one of the m
ost important exhibits on display. It is believed to have been hung as decoration in the tents of Tubo nobles as a symbol of power.上海千花坊品茶微信
“The Silk Road carries a message for all of us today,” Thomas Pritzker says. “The world will
always have problems … Yet each culture has its own history and values, which are unique.
“If we learn more about another country’s culture, it will be easier to find ways to solve these problems,” he says.
