Rural resident Ren Chunhua, 63, who now works as a narrator at a local history gallery, was list

ening to Ge Fei’s lecture in her gallery neighboring the festival venue and wanted to buy his work and got the write

r’s signature. She thought Ma’s work inspired by village life in the 1950s was well-written and accurately reflected the reality there.

Literature aficionado Cao Liang drove for two hours from Taigu county to attend the lectures. Having coll

ected all of Su’s books and being familiar with many of the guest authors’ works, he is currently writing his own novel.

Villagers took turns to attend the festival, a move which Ren believes will in

vigorate the local cultural environment and raise Jiajiazhuang’s profile.

has been the world’s largest supplier of rare earth materials and has always been keen to m

eet the demand of its trade partners on this material to promote the rare earth industry.

The ministry made the remarks after the Trump administration starting May 10 raised tariffs on Chinese goods and rest

ricted Huawei’s business operations, which has harmed the interests of companies and financial markets on both sides.

“While satisfying domestic demand, China is always willing to fulfill other coun

tries’ rightful needs for rare earth materials,” he said. “But if any country plans to use the rare earth materials that Ch

ina exports to make products that will suppress China’s development, it is not acceptable.”

Nor would it adopt a double standard and criticize China’s efforts to counter terrorism and extremism. Last year, tourists fr

om home and abroad paid more than 150 million trips to Xinjiang, thanks to the improved security situation in

the region. That Xinjiang has not witnessed any violent or terrorist incidents in recent years proves the effect

iveness of the joint efforts of the government and local people in maintaining regional peace and stability.

Xinjiang is undoubtedly in its best development stage in histo

ter Games was unveiled in February. Plans aim to optimize the

venues’ designs and operations to be beneficial to the hosting regions after 2022.

“Here, you have the venues from 2008 that are going to be used in 2022 for a complete set of winter sports. This is a wonde

rful legacy story,” said Juan Antonio Samaranch, vice-president of the International Olympic Committee.

Powering all the 2022 venues using green energy while minimizing environmental impacts, while

planning for their post-Games operations, are key in venue preparation this year, Liu said.

To support the preparations financially, Beijing 2022 has signed nine domestic market

IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde sai

in a recent interview with China Central Television that China’s economic d

evelopment now allows for “a focus on quality growth”, rather than necessarily quantity growth.

“And China’s development is clearly at the stage whe

 Lagos–Kano standard gauge project, the first standard gauge railway in Nigeria and West A

frica, was officially inaugurated and started commercial operation on July 26, 2016.

The railway, constructed by China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation, is the first overseas railway fully adopting the Chinese r

ailway standard. Spanning 186.5 kilometers, it alleviates traffic tension, improves the investment envir

onment and promotes the coordinated development of regional economy and society.

By Jan 11, the train service had delivered 1.23 million passengers and had safely operated for 900 days without any major accident recorded since its inception.

The China-funded Colombo Port City, the largest project between C

In addition, hydro-structure construction will be completed by the middle

“They are 20 to 25 years ahead of China in terms of their soccer development.”

Another factor was that Cannavaro did not recall China’s best striker, Wu Lei, who is now playing for Espanyol in La Liga.

Other experienced veterans, such as captain Zheng Zhi, were passed over in order to make way for younger players.

Cannavaro said he sought out the opinion of Lippi, who now serves as an adviser, including player selection.

to work out the technical details for an agr

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

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

Scientists have developed structural brain atlases for the Chinese pediatric population, o

ffering a basic tool for future studies on Chinese children’s brain development.

In magnetic resonance (MR) imaging studies of child’s brain development, structural brain atlases usually serve as imp

ortant references. However, the popular existing pediatric brain atlases are mostly based on MR images obtained from C

aucasian populations and thus are not an accurate characterization of Chinese children’s brains due to differences in genetic and environmental factors.

Scientists from the Beijing Normal University have created a set of age-specific Ch

inese pediatric atlases based on high-quality MR images from 328 cognitively normal Chinese children aged between 6 and 12.

The brain atlases include sex-specific templates and multiple age-specific templates. They show dramatic anatomica

l differences in the bilateral frontal and parietal regions compared with the brain atlases based on Caucasian populations.

The brain atlases have been released online and researchers can download it for free. They may help reveal the Chinese c

hildren’s brain structure and functional development, providing a reference for neuroimaging studies on Chine

se children with abnormal brain development such as autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Knowing that he is the supervisor of 11 companies in Wuhan, Du Jun, 29, is confused. After months of struggling about it, he found that it was still a fog and did not know what to do.

Country mothers were paralyzed in bed, so the minimum living allowance was abolished. A family of five, he works alone

, he works two jobs a day, life is still not guaranteed. It never occurred to him that his identity information had been stolen for no reason, causing so much trouble.

Du Jun felt he had a big black pot on his back.

A company with paralyzed mothers under the son’s name was abolished.

Du Jun is a native of Jingshan Village, Mulan Township, Huangpi District. The 53-year-old mother suffered three str

okes and was paralyzed in bed for the third time for two years. She was unable to take care of herself.

Father can do nothing in the countryside to take care of his mother. The wife will tak

e her 3-year-old daughter, and the family of five depend solely on Du Jun to su

pport her. He now works two jobs. He works in Huazhong Community canteen of Shuita Street in Hankou in the m

orning and delivers takeout in the afternoon. After a month’s hard work, he can earn about 5000 yuan.

Mothers need to soften blood vessels. They need to be hospitalized three times a y

ear and spend 120,000 yuan. In the past, mothers had a minimum living allowance of more than 300 yuan per m

onth, and medical expenses could be reimbursed by 80%. This reduced Du Jun’s pressure.
