“Products that just scratch the surface, like simple tours of famous universities, have fallen out of favor with the market,” Zhang says.

Language training, NASA’s space camp, computer programming, homes

tays, wild animal care and desert and museum experiences are among the most popular options.

“Certain volunteering and public-welfare routes have seen a particularly fast increase in bookings,” Zhang says.

During the recent winter vacation in February, study-t

rip bookings surged by 80 percent compared with the same period of last year.

Domestic trips cost roughly 4,500 yuan ($663) per capita on ave

The industrial park sits on nearly 26 hectares of land in

Ballard County and has been set up to use the carp acquired by the fish center. Twelve tracts of land inside the park are for sale.

On opening day, eight tracts were already claimed, with most of the investors coming from China.

Jiang Chenguang, an internet businessman from the Guangxi

Zhuang autonomous region, launched the United Fisheries Group to process carp into fish balls

and fish cakes for export to China. Two Rivers Foods will process smoked fish, and has already shipped a smoker to the site.

A business called Lakeside City has been formed to process carp into salted fish, while

Eco Fish, which already existed, has hired fishermen to catch carp, process them and recycle waste into fertilizer.

Zhu Hongwei, a hotel and catering businessman from Jiangsu province, decided on the day the indus

trial park opened to buy one tract of land for food processing. “I will decide how to process the fish later,” Zhu said.

The name 996.ICU refers to a saying among Chin

hinese developers that following the 996 schedule puts you at risk of ending up in an intensive care unit.

In the weeks that followed the creation of 996.ICU in March, the page ha

s accrued almost 200,000 stars-which indicates popularity among users.

Users listed tech companies that use the 996 schedule, and then crea

ted a licensing agreement that would ban such companies from using their codes.

The 996.ICU page was soon blocked on multiple platforms including the messaging tool WeChat and the UC Browser.

The 996 schedule was allegedly first adopted in 2016 by 58.com, a major online classified advertisement site.

Top court’s new IP tribunal upholds French firm’s patent

The top court on Wednesday ruled in favor of a French global automotive supplier in a patent dispute

with two Chinese car accessory companies amid the country’s intensified efforts to protect intellectual property rights.

It was also the first public hearing by the Intellectual Property Court of the Supreme People’s Court since the special court was set up on Jan 1.

Valeo Systemes d’Essuyage, one of the world’s leading auto component providers, sued X

iamen Lukasi Car Accessories Co and Xiamen Fuke Wiper Co, two companies based in Fujian pro

vince, claiming infringement of Valeo’s patent on a connector for windshield wipers.

An IP court in Shanghai reached a verdict on Jan 22 finding that the two Chinese companies must cease their infring

ement. The two companies appealed to the top court, insisting that their products did not infringe on Valeo’s patent rights.

The President’s emergency Proclamation reasonably descr

  ribed the current situation as an ongoing ‘border security and humanitarian crisis,'” Boyd adds. “The cris

is at the border … may qualify as an emergency even though it, too, is not entirely new.”

  Twelve Republican senators banded together Thursday to deliver the f

orceful rebuke after expressing concerns that Trump’s use of the national emergency decla

ration as an end-run around Congress violates the separation of powers and sets a bad precedent that a woul

d-be future Democratic president could follow to unilaterally drive their agenda.

  The White House sought to pare back Republican defections leading up to the vote, with the President and White House aides

making clear to Republican senators that a vote against Trump on this issue would have ramifications come re-election time.

  Trump rejected entreaties from several Senate Republicans t

o agree to a compromise that would curtail his national emergency powers and instead fra

med the vote not as a matter of constitutional concerns, but rather as a litmus test on border security.

  A spokesperson for Google and YouTube issued a statement calling the shooting a “terrible tragedy.”

  ”Shocking, violent and graphic content has no place on our platforms, and is removed as soon as we become aware

of it,” read the statement. “As with any major tragedy, we will work cooperatively with the authorities.”

  Twitter has removed an account it believes is linked to the suspect in the shootin

He said China’s capital controls will continue to be a f

factor in Chinese outbound investments in 2018. “If you are a company where real estate and property development is your ma

in line of business I think you will have a better chance of getting your foreign investment approved,” he said.

Despite the decline in Chinese investment, the US commercial real estate markets weathered the loss of capi

tal well. Because New York and San Francisco receive two-thirds of every Chinese investment dollar according to the

report, the effect of the falloff was limited, according to Barry Hersh, a real estate professor at New York University.

Overall, China fell to third in total foreign investment in American real estate behind Cana

da and Singapore, according to the report. Bitner said other sources of capital stepped in to fill the void. “Capital fro

m Canada, Singapore, Japan and South Korea is coming into the US market,” he said.

This environment created a black market in which bro

  okers will offer to dispose of waste at below the market rate.

  Brokers charge between $130 and $170 to dump a ton of waste in a sparsely

populated part of the country, says Lee, Kim’s former boss.

  Not only can this be a lucrative source of income, the fines for illegal

dumping are only about $3,000, Lee says.

  Lee estimates that Kim pocketed upwards of $22 million this way, judging by the extra trash that was found at his site.

  A new dumping ground

  Since the China ban, South Korea has been using Southeast Asia as a

dumping ground for much of its non-recyclable waste.

  The country now exports 10 times more waste to the Philippines and

almost 30 times mor

e to Thailand than it did before Beijing’s ban. But not all the waste sent abroad is

disposed of legally.
