 preparations are well underway for a successful and sustainable event.

Built for the 2008 Summer Games, Olympic Park in Beijing’s no

rthern downtown area entered the spotlight again on Friday as the country began its cou

ntdown. The 2022 Winter Olympics, will be held in Beijing and co-host Zhangjiakou in adjacent Hebei province.

As the symbolic “1,000” flashed on a digital clock on the park’s Linglong Tow

er, a broadcasting facility for the 2008 Games, expectations were heightened f

or the winter sports extravaganza, which will run from Feb 4 to 20 in 2022. Three zones will feature ath

A purported doctor who goes by the alias Dahanc

A purported doctor who goes by the alias Dahanc

chengxiang recently wrote a WeChat article saying he often encountered patients who fell for the fake adverti

sements, wasted money and treatment time and thus missed the opportunity to be cured.

The netizen also strongly opposed Li’s nomination shortly after the announce

ment, saying in an article that Li was morally unqualified because of Baidu’s insufficient regulation of adver

tising. The article went viral on social media but was removed over complains of libel by Baidu.

Li would not be the first controversial engineer to become an acade

mician, which carries perks such as stipends and medical se

rvices. In 2011, the public was outraged when Xie Jianping, a chemical engineer who created less harmful to

bacco products, became an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Such a personal goal can be seen, to a certain extentas a

microcosm of the national aspirations of both of their countries to gain a place in the global space arena via the cooperation and assistance of China.

Chea and Moreno Pena are part of a training program hosted by the China Academy of Space Technology.

The idea is to train a small group of elite foreign students to become s

pace industry engineers capable of developing and manufacturing satellites on their o

wn, thus enabling their countries to build their respective space industries and explore space.

Eight people are taking part in the program, which began in March 2018-two Ve

nezuelans, two Pakistanis, one Cambodian, one Russian, one Belarusian and one Kazakh.

“I am the first-ever Cambodian studying spacecraft knowledge,” Chea told

China Daily recently at the Shenzhou Institute, which is run by the academy.

I was premier of New South Wales for the long

est time. I got to know the Chinese community and got to appreciate its loyalty to Australia an

d its democracy and cannot imagine Australia without them. They are not pushing a communist par

ty agenda. Now they feel uncomfortable with headlines that associate them with disloyalty.

Chinese-Australians need to set up an organization

And I will offer my advice and support when they are ready to set up an organization to defend this proposition.

It should be an organization without any links to Beijing or any obl

igation to defend China’s system of government, an organization that will assert that mig

rants from China who do the right thing should not be subject to taunts and stereotypes and vilification.

With this, it might be said, Chinese migrants in Australia will stand up, just as the Jewish migrants did in the US.

It is sometimes called Cantonese cancer, as the inciden

e in Guangdong – 30 cases per 100,000 people – is more than 30 times higher than the rest of the world.

When Ma was a visiting scholar in the United States, he found many patients we

re Chinese-American, and most of their families were originally from Guangdong.

An epidemiology study in 2010 traced the risk gene for this type of cance

r to the Baiyue people, an ethnic group that lived in the area more than 2,000 years ago.

In 1998, the US National Comprehensive Cancer Network proposed concomitant radiothera

py and chemotherapy along with three courses of intensified adjuvant chemotherapy afterward to treat patients with a

dvanced nasopharyngeal cancer. It became the standard treatment for advanced cases around the world.

For years, Ma has wondered if it really worked for Chinese people.

 followed by Baidu and ByteDance, according to the employment-oriented social networking platform LinkedIn.

The ranking list is based on feedback from LinkedIn’s more than 40 million users in China, taking fo

ur aspects into consideration — interest in the company, engagement with employees, job demands and employee retention.

Qualified companies must have had at least 500 employees as of Feb 1, 2018, and demonst

rate flat or positive employee growth over the following 12 months, based on LinkedIn’s data.

Among the top 25 companies to work for in 2019, 15 of them are technology companies, as the results showed.

Here is the top 10 list for best employers in China.

A traditional craft maker in Qinzhou, a city in South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous

region, found a clue to boost popularity of its more-than-1,300-year-old workmanship. That is tourism.

Long Shaorong, vice-general manager with Qinzhou Nixing Pottery Arts Co Ltd, bets big on

tourism to beef up sales of Nixing pottery, one of the top four potteries in China, which originates from Tang Dynasty.

In the meantime, Cainiao Network, the logistics arm

 of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, announced it will employ more than 100,000 delivery

men in the next three years, with an aim to help their average wages increase by more than 20 percent.

According to Cainiao, its parcel pick-up services within two hours has cov

ered 284 cities across the country, which means the company’s logistics network has not

only covered first-tier cities, but also third and fourth-tier cities and even rural areas.

Industry insiders said JD is facing rising labor costs, and Cainiao’s intention of hiring more

couriers will intensify competition in the country’s logistics and delivery sector.

“Although JD Logistics is beefing up its presence in third-party delivery business and takin

g steps to motivate staff’s enthusiasm, it still lags behind courier companies such as SF Holding, YTO Expre

ss, STO Express and Yunda Express,” said Lu Zhenwang, CEO of Shanghai-based Wanqing Consultancy.

According to data released by the US Federal Bureau of

According to data released by the US Federal Bureau of

Prisons last year, 93 percent of inmates in the US are men. The nation’s incarceration rate peaked at 1,000 inma

tes per 100,000 adults during the three-year period between 2006 and 2008; the number was 310 in 1980.

When men are confined to jail or prison, or when a criminal record trails

them following their release, they may become less attractive candidates for marriage.

A 2018 study conducted by the University of Nicosia in Cyprus, based on an

analysis of 13,429 responses on Reddit, a popular social media website in the US, shows that th

e most frequent reasons that men indicated for being single included poor looks, low self-esteem and confidence, low

effort, not interested in relationships, no available women and poor flirting skills.

“To be honest, sometimes I do get lonely, but it’s never strong enough to make me think I wish I had someone,” said Martin W

est, a 34-year-old self-employed small business owner in New York. “I do enjoy relationships, but being single has some perks th

at a relationship can’t give you – so much disposable income, so much freedom in every aspect, no conflict or drama.”

Border patrol officers apprehended 66,450 people at the

Border patrol officers apprehended 66,450 people at the

southern border in February, two and a half times the number they apprehended in February 2018.

It is not clear how shutting down ports of entry would deter asylum see

kers, as they are legally able to request help as soon as they set foot on US soil.

But a border shutdown would disrupt tourism and commerce betwe

en the United States and Mexico, which totaled $612 billion last year, according to the US Cen

sus Bureau. Nielsen warned that the personnel shift would lead to commercial delays and longer wait times at crossing points.

Trump is trying to convince Congress to sign off on a revised trade

agreement with Mexico and Canada that his administration negotiated last year.

Trump delivered his latest threat in a series of Twitter as at least hundreds of migrants were

being held in a chain-link enclosure in El Paso, Texas, a border patrol official saying on Thursday that migra

nts were crossing at an average of 570 people per day in the area, the highest rate in more than a decade.
