hina to establish first Great Wall restoration center surrounded

BEIJING – China’s first Great Wall restoration center will be established in Beijing, combining academic research, restoration and protection of the ancient wall.

The center will have archaeologists, designers and craftspersons w

orking together to make targeted plans for the restoration of the Jiankou section of the Gr

eat Wall, which is located in the northern Huairou District of Beijing, according to Beijing Daily.

“The new method will effectively tackle unpredictability in excavation and protection

of the Great Wall,” Zhang Tong, an official at the cultural relics administration of Huairou, was quoted as saying.

The center will also regularly check the conditions of the Great Wall for preventive c

onservation. It will keep records of the restoration for future use, the newspaper said.

With a total length of 7,952 meters, the Jiankou Great Wall was built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It was once neglected and became damaged over time.

It aims to increase the share of gas in its energy mix to

percent of the nation’s primary energy demand by 2020, according to the commission.

“Demand for gas has surged in China in recent years, which has posed a pot

ential threat to the country’s energy security. Underground gas storage, on the other hand, could w

ell meet the peak for gas consumption and is a necessary part of the natural gas industrial chain,” he said.

“Sufficient storage facilities and competent peak load regulation capacity is necessary for a stable supply of natural gas.”

According to Zhang, major gas consumers around the world have set up gas storage sy

stems, with gas in storage contributing more than 10 percent of annual gas consumption.

Bloomberg Intelligence estimated earlier that nationwide gas storage will rise to 4.1 percent of demand in 2020, compared with 2.8 percent in 2015.

His full political arsenal was on display in a Trumpian mas

  sterclass of a photo-op in the Oval Office Thursday with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

  A historian 100 years hence could pull the tape of the 16-minute tour

de force and learn everything they needed to know about the Trump presidency.

  Trump’s behavior on Thursday offered pointers to how he will attempt to ride out political crosswinds using the uniq

ue political tools that made his late-in-life transition from business to Washington so successful.

  Thursday’s rebuke from Congress came amid a spell that wo

uld have been disastrous for any conventional politician, as legal and congressional probe

s suggest tough challenges ahead as special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report looms. Unusually, it also included a sla

p from some Republicans who have been loath to challenge their leader in the first two years of his presidency.

First, he claimed that the former President had predicted

  2016 that British voters would reject leaving the European Union in a

referendum while he had predicted they would vote to exit the bloc.

  Obama did not bet on the outcome. But he did however warn Britons

they would go “to the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the US if they left the EU.

  Then Trump claimed — wrongly — that the EU was unwilling to “negotiate with the Obam

a administration” about trade. In fact, the previous administration sought to conclude a Tran

satlantic Trade and Investment Partnership — or TTIP — with Europe, though was unable to get the deal across the

line. Trump’s own talks on trade with Europe have been inconclusive, after he threatened to spark a trade war.

  Trump’s comments on Brexit also illustrated the tendency of a President who admires dictators to throw allied leaders under the bus.

  He criticized Prime Minister Theresa May, whose credibility has been shredded by parliamentary defeats.

  ”She didn’t listen to that and that’s fine, I mean, she’s got to do what she’s got to do,” said Tr

ump, who was forced into a rare apology last year after hammering May’s Brexit strategy on the eve of meeting her in the UK.

Roper emphasized to reporters that while the issue of the

  material and objects — known as Foreign Object Debris, or FOD — being left inside an

aircraft as it comes off the production line is not a design or safety risk, it is a

matter of great concern to the military.

  ”FOD is really about every person, everyone in the workforce, f

ollowing those procedures and bringing a culture of discipline for safety,” Roper said.

  Top US general says Google ‘is indirectly benefiting the Chinese Culture

  Boeing will now have to conduct spot inspections on the aircraft during product

  ”I certainly think they are going to have to have a good team,” to carry out

the new inspection program, Roper said.

Of the other three people apprehended, two were arrested in

  possession of firearms and police are still trying to understand their involvement, said New Zealand Police Com

missioner Mike Bush. On Friday night local time police tweeted that the pair remain in custody.

  Police said a fourth person was arrested Friday but “that was not related to these events.”

  Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that at least one of those arreste

d is Australian. He said the shooting was the work of an “extremist right-wing, violent terrorist.”

The CPPCC should improve its quality in carrying out its

  dual responsibility of offering suggestions and building consensus, and shoulder its political responsibilities of impleme

nting the CPC Central Committee’s decisions and plans, of meeting its requirements for CPPCC wo、

rk, and of pooling the wisdom and strength of all Chinese people, at home and overseas, for national rejuvenation, it says.

  ang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and cha

irman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), presides over the closing meet

ing of the second session of the 13th CPPCC National Committee at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, March 13, 2019.

  Basketball legend Yao Ming has always voiced his support for physical education during the two sessions.

ical Consultative Conference’s National Committee, Yao called for more cross-departmental coope

ration and better coaching to further expand a school basketball program launched last year.

Chi Jian, a CPPCC member and former president of Beij

  jing Sport University, suggested that the education ministry and the GASC, the country’s top sports governing body, should work to

gether to build a training and evaluation platform online to encourage retired athletes and coaches to get involved in helping schools.

  ”As important as upgrading facilities is raising the status of PE teachers in schools to the level of their counterparts in charge of academic classes,” Chi said.

  PE tests are included in China’s high school entrance exams, with required scores varyi

ng based on local policies. However, PE performance is not included in the scoring system for the college entrance examination, or gaokao.

  China’s procurator-general has called for procuratorates nationwide to further improve t

heir capabilities in law enforcement to meet higher public expectations.

  In the past year, amid people’s rising demands for democracy, rule of law, justice, security and a better envir

onment, prosecuting authorities have made consistent efforts to adopt a people-oriented approach in their work, as i

nstructed by President Xi Jinping, according to Zhang Jun, procurator-general of the Supreme People’s Procuratorate.

The top procuratorate has restructured its internal sys

tems and formed 10 departments to handle criminal, civil, administrative and public interest cases, he said in an interview.

“Justice and fairness should not only be achieved, but also be felt and seen by the public in a more sensible way,” Zhang said.

To achieve that goal, prosecutors have been closely watching crimes that most affect people’s daily lives. For example, 43,929 p

eople were charged in 2018 with telecom fraud — a crime to which everyone is vulnerable — up by 29.3 percent year-on-year.

Another 42,195 people were prosecuted for damaging the environment and resources, an i

ncrease of 21 percent annually, and 12,360 people were charged with producing or selling fake or sub

standard drugs or toxic food products, an increase of 5.5 percent, according to the SPP.

Zhang said prosecuting authorities also actively participated in a joint crackdown against or

ganized crime and local mafia groups to bring the people a greater sense of security.
