conomy plowing ahead上海419ite strong headwindsChin

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.

To better preserve the grasslands and reduce environmental degradation caused by grazing

, local herdsmen have returned their lands to nature and resettled in county urban areas. 上海419

In cooperation with China Pacific Insurance Co, the management committee guarantees the conservators with compens

 上海419品茶微信ation of up to 300,000 yuan ($43,600), covering injuries and accidents,” said Mou Yonghong, an o

fficial from Sanjiangyuan National Park’s Lancang River Management Committee.

A mechanism for livestock compensation has also been established: each lost cow is compensated with 500 to 1,500 yuan ($70-200), depending on age. 上海419品茶微信

To encourage more residents to take part in environmental protection, the lo

cal government has combined this goal with poverty alleviation. They offer positions of “e

 上海419cological conservators” for every registered family, paying each family a monthly subsidy of 1,800 yuan ($260). The co

nservators are responsible for patrolling the lands, collecting and disposing of garbage and monitoring wildlife.

With more people working as conservators, Tsewang Dorje, deputy head of the 上海419品茶微信

ecological management station of Namsei village, noted the overall environmental awareness of l

ocals has progressed, and environmental protection has gradually become part of their lives. 上海419

“We see little rubbish left on the mountains now. Every year bef

 上海419品茶微信ore the season for picking chongcao, we train the villagers and ask them to fill in the pits afte

r digging the caterpillar fungus so as to reduce damage to the pasture. They’ve also learned the habit of taking their food wa

ste down the mountains. Their conscientiousness has grown a lot,” he recalled.

“When people’s awareness of the environment improves, my work becomes 上海419

much easier,” echoed Lekga, who has worked as a conservator for three and a half years.

As the environmental status advances, the wildlife population increases. One problem, accordin 上海419品茶微信

g to locals, is damage to houses, livestock and people caused by animals such as brown bears and wolves.

To address such concerns, Sanj 上海419iangyuan National Park’s managem

ent committee has purchased insurance for more than 17,000 ecological conservators.

“I used to be a herder. I moved out from my pasture because I learned lives

tock cause damage to the land,” recalled 50-year-old Dorje Tsering, a Tibetan herd 上海419品茶微信

sman who moved to downtown Yeqing village in Yushu’s Zhidoi county around six years ago.

After relocation, Dorje Tsering and his family now receive an annual sub

sidy of 2,100 yuan ($300) each, paid for by the county government. The family also mak

es money by picking chongcao, or Chinese caterpillar fungus, every year in May and June, as many other villagers do. Cat

erpillar fungus is one of the most precious ingredients in traditional Chinese medicine.

India to impose retalia上海419品茶微信roductsmedia

The Indian governmen上海419品茶微信t has decided to impose retaliatory d

uties worth over 200 million US dollars on 29 products from the United States to co

unter the penal duties imposed on Indian aluminum and steel, local media reported Saturday.

The decision, to be officially notified on Sunday, came a few days ahead

of the scheduled visit of the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to India to discuss def

ense and trade issues, the Hindu Business Line quoting an unnamed government official as saying.

In June last year, India announced retaliatory tariffs worth 230 million US dollars on 29 US goods. However, India h

as since been postponing implementation of the duties in a bid to address trade concerns.

The trade concerns including the proposed withdrawal of the Generalized System of Preferences by the United States o

n India taking effect on June 5, may have prompted New Delhi to finally put the duties in place, the report said.

Misinformation swirling around Dutch teenager’s d

At just 17-ye上海419女神会所ars-old, Dutch teenager Noa Pothoven had alr

eady written an award-winning memoir detailing her struggle with post-tra

matic stress disorder, depression and anorexia in the wake of sexual assault and rape.

In her autobiography, Pothoven wrote that she had nothing left to live for.
At 16, she app

roached the Levenseinde, or “end-of-life,” clinic in The Hague to inquire about euthanasia, but, according to an

interview last year with local newspaper the Gelderlander, her request was rejected.
Last

week, after years of battling mental illness, Pothoven announced on Instagram that she had begun refusing all food

and liquids.
“After years of fighting, the fighting has finished. I have now stopped eating and dri

nking for a while, and after many conversations and reviews it has been decided that I will be released because

my suffering is unbearable,” Pothoven wrote in a post, which has since been removed.
