China is the only country that lists forecasting earthquakes as a government responsibility.

Considering our limited knowledge about earthquakes, the forecasting work has to be based on observation. However, the we

A report released in August by the Center for China and

 Globalization said about a third of graduate returnees to China with four-year degre

es currently earn less than 6,000 yuan ($893) a month, while 25 percent make between 6,000 and 8,000 yuan.

For students graduating with four-year degrees from China’s top 100 schools, monthly

salaries range between 6,000 and 9,000 yuan, according to a Guangming Daily report.

The salaries awaiting returnees to China are paltry compared with the high cost of overseas stu

dy, which has risen to an average 300,000 yuan per year for tuition, room and board, the CCG report said.

According to the 2018 Report on Chinese Students’ Overseas Study released by New Oriental Vision Overseas Consulting Co an

d Kantar Millward Brown, about 78 percent of Chinese students abroad planned to work in China either right af

ter graduation or after working overseas for a while, compared with 58 percent in 2016.

Mapping of parathyroid hormone to help patients of os

Scientists have for the first time seen clearly the dynamic structure of the receptor of human parathyroid hormone, of which the s

ecretion is closely related to diseases including osteoporosis, hypoparathyroidism, and cachexia.

The revelation provides valuable insights into discovering novel therap

eutics against such diseases, the group of researchers said at a media briefing on Friday.

Patients of osteoporosis, who the National Health Commission in October said number nearly 20 percent of Chin

ese over the age of 50, need to take medicines stimulating the human parathyroid hormone receptor.

As such medicines are polypeptide, they can only be injected rather than being orally ta

ken, which can trigger a reaction with enzymes in the mouth and become ineffective, researchers said.

In this video interview, Liang Bin, Director-General of

CRIHAP, talks about safeguarding ICH and gives suggestions on raising awareness and promoting the spirit of the Convention.

“I think we might as well take the youth as one of the foci of our future trainings, involving them

in our training courses. By doing so, more young people will take part in the cause of ICH safeguarding,” he said.

Nation plays vital role in safeguarding and showcasing regional landmarks

China is playing a key role in protecting and displaying heritage, not only at home but also in the region.

For example, the country has partnered with Cambodia to preserve the ancient city of Angkor.

In an interview with Xinhua News Agency in January, Cambodian Minister of Culture and Fine

Arts Phoeurng Sackona thanked the Chinese government for supporting her country in preserving its na

tional heritage. She also expressed hope for skills exchanges through such collaboration.

“We’re confident in the abilities of Chinese experts, and through these projects, we hope that Cambodian expert

s will be capable of renovating temples by themselves in the future,” Sackona said.

In a situation of rising income inequality, the ab

 of affluent two-earner couples to outbid single people for homes is a real problem,” said Coontz, adding that it’s exacerbated in Amer

ica by the extremely uneven quality of local schools, so that people get into bidding wars over homes in good school districts.

“We have to think through our housing policies, zoning laws and social investm

ents to find better ways to produce affordable housing (for singles),” she added.

A rise in single-person households may aid labor market mobility, ac

cording to Bachman. With fewer attachments to property and free of marital burdens, the

se individuals may be more open to shifting cities for jobs, which could make the labor market more mobile.

At the same time, single-person households will have to cope with lower availability of informal personal care from

partners, Bachman wrote. Such nonmarket production (as economists would define it) may need to be replaced by pur

chased personal care services, especially health and nursing care, which could significantly impact the healthcare industry.

The United States principals will be accompanied by Dep

eputy USTR Jeffrey Gerrish and other senior officials from the USTR Office and the Department of the Treasury.

remier Liu He for meetings in Washington starting on April 3,” the statement said.

The message echoed an announcement by China’s Ministry of Commerce on Thursday that the two sides will start the eigh

th round of trade talks in Beijing, followed by the ninth round in Washington early next month.

The two sides have recently had several phone conversations on eco

Negotiations led by Vice-Premier Liu and USTR Lighthizer from Feb 21 to 24 in Washington yielded “substantial prog

ress” on specific issues such as technology transfer, protection of intellectual property rights, non-tariff barri

Brexit is costing the UK economy $1 billion a week. And it could

  rexit has been delayed, and may eventually be called off. But it’s already done major damage to the UK economy.

  The vote to leave the European Union in June 2016 caused the pound to weaken drama

tically and ushered in years of uncertainty that has reduced economic activity and triggered a slump in investment.

  The economy is now 2% smaller than it would have been if the United Kingdom had chosen to remain in the bloc, according to the Bank of England. The econ

omic output lost since the referendum is worth about £800 million ($1 billion) per week, or £4.7 million ($6 million) per hour.

  The economic consequences have piled up despite there having been no struct

ural changes yet to Britain’s trading relationship with EU nations or the rest of the world.

  Britain has continued to sell goods and services into the European Un

ion, its biggest trading partner, while politicians worked to negotiate the divorce. It has been

easy for UK companies to hire EU workers, and to maintain supply chains that crisscross national borders

Ardern was elected Prime Minister in October 2017, at the hea

  d of a coalition between her left-wing Labour Party and the populist, anti-immigrantion NZ First.

  She had only taken over as Labour leader three months earlier, at which point it was trailing so far in the polls that i

t looked doubtful it could cobble together a coalition government, let alone score anything close to a majority.

  In a poll before Ardern took over from then Labour leader Andrew Little, the party’s suppo

rt had plunged to less than 25%, a 20-year low. Months later, as “Jacindamania” gripped the nation, it surged to over 40%.

  While she would eventually have to rely on NZ First and the Gr

eens for support, Ardern succeeded in boosting Labour enough to make her the world’s yo

ungest serving female leader, and end a decade of control by the conservative-leaning National Party.

  Since then she has occupied a role unfamiliar to most New Zealand leaders: Global celebrity.
