service consumption accounting for 47.7 percent, up 1.4 percentage points year-on-year
. Meanwhile, sluggish auto consumption dragged the whole consumption growth.
The continuous decline of auto consumption has become
a key for stabilizing this year’s consumption, said Liu Xiaoguang, a resear
cher at the National Academy of Development and Strategy at Renmin University of China.
Mao Shengyong, spokesperson for the National Bureau of Statistics, recently said t
hat based on March data, auto production fell, however, the drop was narrowing.
The National Development and Reform Commission was reportedly considering a sl
ew of new measure to boost spending on automobiles, home appliances and consum
er electronics products. It has sent a draft plan to encourage consumption in the three sectors.
he clock, a fire engine, over 160 hydrants, thousand of extinguishers, and fire walls, officials said last year.
But not all relics have such rigid supervision. A joint comprehensive survey was started in Septemb
er by the administration and the Ministry of Emergency Management. It found that 33 major institutions still don‘t meet stan
dards, and the State Council issued a notice on Wednesday that they were to receive the highest-level supervision.
On Tuesday, the administration urged local governments to immediately launch evaluations of potential hazards.
The new lawsuit against Liu Qiangdong, the billionaire founder and CEO of Chinese e-commerce giant JD, and his compan
y filed by a University of Minnesota student might further shake investors’ confidence, and tarnish the image
and reputation of the company, amid tougher competition from rivals such as Alibaba and Pinduoduo.
The Chinese student from University of Minnesota, who claimed she was raped last August by Liu, filed a c
ivil lawsuit against him in Minneapolis on Tuesday, four months after prosecutors decided not to pursue a criminal case.
For residents in Huojugou village in China’s Changbai Mountains, a train whistl
e is a euphonious sound that will bring gurgling water to their kitchen and bathhouse.
For 44 years, the mountainous village and several others in northeast China’s Jilin Province
have relied on a train, which only has one locomotive and one tank car, to provide their water supply.
The train commutes between the towns of Songshu and Baihe, nestled deep in Changbai Mountain. Since 1975, it has run for m
ore than 1.6 million km, delivering water to over 2,600 nearby villagers that had limited access to clean water.
Though cisterns have been built to store water unloaded from the trains, villagers along the line
still keep the tradition of welcoming the train in person, clanking their buckets and bottles.
Fetching water used to be a big headache. We had to travel to a far-away river to get water and e
ven make a hole in the ice during winter,” said Li Zuopei, an 80-year-old resident in Yingbishan village.
“Then the small train sent water right to our doorsteps, and it’s amaz
ing that the service has been going on uninterrupted for so many years,” said Li.
When I woke up Friday morning to the news of the massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, I felt sick. But sad
ly, not entirely surprised. I had been dreading this kind of violence happening, although I would have never imag
ined this kind of scale — 49 Muslim men, women and children killed in cold blood with such clinical, methodical precision and filmed for social media.
Islamophobia is on the rise and has been for some time. Muslims have been demonize
d, dehumanized and scapegoated on an industrial scale by society since 9/11.
No other group has been punished for the sins of the father in such a systematic and accepted way. Politicians, commen
tators, influencers and the media on the right have waged a war against Muslims that has become normalized.
The most powerful man on the planet, President Donald Trump, has sought to ban them fro
m entering the United States. British prime minister hopeful and former Foreign Secretary Bori
s Johnson made “jokes” insulting Muslim women, saying they looked like letter boxes. After those comments, Tell Mam
a, an organization that records Muslim hate incidents, reported that attacks on Muslim women went up.
They often take the form of pulling off a woman’s headscarf, espe
cially when she’s taking her children to and from school. Imagine what that does to a young
frightened and confused Muslim child? We have respected high-profile commentators who say that Islam
ophobia doesn’t exist and imply that “they” have brought it on themselves because of terrorism.
Kim Jong-un and United States President Donald Trump met in Hanoi on Wednesday, their broad smiles and warm handsh
ake conveyed the same conviviality they displayed after their head-to-head talks in Singapore eight months ago.
However, the expectations ahead of this meeting have been much higher than they were last June, when the first mee
ting between the two sitting leaders of the two countries was a historic achievement in itself.
This time both leaders will be hoping to return home with more than just the souvenir photos.
A formal end to the 1950-53 Korean War, which the DPRK has long sought, would go a long way
to addressing Pyongyang’s security concerns, which it has used to justify its nuclear weapons program.
With a security guarantee and incentives, such as sanctions relief and economic assistan
ce, the once isolated country would have no reason not to drop its nuclear weapons program.
Trump, who seems to have adopted a more flexible approach in dealing with Pyongyang, said prio
r to the Hanoi summit that he would be happy as long as the DPRK commits to “no (nuclear weapons) testing”.
