approaching a European Council summit where thebehavior of

the EU can’t easily be predicted.

The difficulty for the EU is that, long or short, any delay comes with complications. And this is where opinions in European capitals start to diverge.

If the UK hasn’t left the EU by May 22, it might have to take part in elections to the European Parli

amentary elections, which begin the following day. Not doing so could be a breach of the UK’s obligations as a

member state.And if that happens, there is a real concern in Brussels that hardline Euroskeptics could stand for elect

ion, in protest at Britain not yet having yet Brexited. They might find a receptive public, and in turn, join interesting new fr

iends in the European Parliament. Sound far fetched? An EU source recently told CNN of worries in Brussels that far-right figures like To

mmy Robinson could end up as Members of the European Parliament, with all the associated attention that brings.

So a short delay is the preferred option of many in Brussels, especially in the Parliament. But that brings its own set of issues. Fi

rst, there is no guarantee that by the end of it, the UK Parliament would have given a thumbs up to May’s deal. In reality, it cou

ld just mean a delay to a no-deal Brexit that almost everyone claims they want to avoid, but still remains the default legal position.

Talent, research capabilities needed in scientific fields

Talent, research capabilities needed in scientific fields

About a century ago, Chen Duxiu, one of the founders of the Comm

unist Party of China, called for the people to use science to save the country from the dark ages. Scie

nce was also widely encouraged during the May Fourth Movement in 1919, a campaign that opposed im

perialism and feudalism, thus changing the trajectory of contemporary Chinese history.

Despite its relatively late introduction, modern science has taken root, flourished and intertwined with the fate of th

is ancient nation. Scientific knowledge, along with the attitude, methods, ideas and spirit, are not only aff

ecting people’s day-to-day decisions, but are also driving the socioeconomic development of China and the world.

These facts will be more apparent this year as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of

China. The Chinese Academy of Sciences will also celebrate its 70th birthday in November.

South Korea’s plastic problem is a literal trash Uiseong, a pictu

South Korea’s plastic problem is a literal trash Uiseong, a pictu

  ue South Korean farming county, was a backwater until homegrown heroes the Garlic Girl

s became breakout stars and curling silver medalists at last year’s Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

  In recent months the spotlight has again fallen on Uiseong for a far less glorious rea

son: a smoldering mountain of garbage which highlights the trash crisis in the densely populated nation.

  Among the rice paddies and beside the Nakdong River in the

country’s east, a horseshoe-shaped, 170,000-ton heap of trash is spontaneously combusting, spe

wing out plumes of smoke and the nose-scorching, chemical stench of burning plastic.

  On a cold February morning, six workers wearing grimy overalls a

nd gas masks clamber over the 50 feet-tall (15 meters) man-made hill, dousing the smo

ke with fire hoses. But as soon as one smoldering spot is extinguished, another flares up.

ijing Jiangong Hospital was once an enterprise-owned hospital

Statistics from Beijing-headquartered think tank iyiou.com revealed that by last September, there were a total of 20,011 private hosp

itals in China, accounting for nearly half of the country’s medical institutions. According to Hao Deming, exec

utive vice-president and secretary-general of the Chinese Nongovernment Medical Institutions Association, starting from

2013, the number of China’s private hospitals has grown at an annual rate of 15 percent.

Capital also favors private hospitals. “The number of private hospitals in China accounts f

or half of the total, and is growing at a much higher rate than the number of public hospitals. The invest

ment from the capital market into the sector is an unprecedented blockbuster expansion,” said Xia Xia

oyan, a partner and managing director of Boston Consulting Group, during an interview with pppod.net.

The report from BCG showed that since 2012, investment in medical in

stitutions has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 80 percent, realizing a fiftyfold incr

ease from 2012 to 2018. Between 2015 and 2016 a record number of deals took place.

From the beginning of 2017 to May 2018, China’s private healthcare institutions had attracted roughly 11 billion yuan of inve

stment, and each deal surpassed 200 million yuan, according to the report issued by iyiou.com.

  the children “have decades of life that they hope to still have, and your leadership is so be

autifully, beautifully possible,” the senator replies, “That doesn’t work with me, thank you.”

  A woman urges the children to read the letter aloud.

  Once most of the children exit, several women stay and calmly chat with Feinstein. One of them says voting to support the deal is important even thou

gh it “isn’t something that’s aimed at passing right now” and the 16-year-old inquires about internship opportunities in F

einstein’s office.Even if everything goes according to plan, it will likely be months before construction on President D

onald Trump’s sought-after border wall can even start, according to senior defense officials.

  Trump recently declared a national emergency on the southern border, a move that in theory will allow his admini

stration to tap and repurpose more than $3 billion in military construction funds to build sections of the wall.

  The declaration has been challenged by several states and some members of Congress.

  Trump also said that his administration would use the Pentagon’s counter drug fund to build sections of the wall.

Pelosi urges members to back resolution terminating

Pelosi urges members to back resolution terminating

  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi urged members of Congress on Wednesday to bac

k a resolution halting the national emergency declared by President Donald Trump to fund a border wall.

  Pelosi’s call to action comes as the White House plows ahead on transferring federal funds not contingent on Trump’s declara

tion toward building a wall along the southern border, despite already facing several lawsuits.

  ”I write to invite all Members of Congress to cosponsor Congressman Joaquin Castro’s priv

ileged resolution … to terminate this emergency declaration using the termination mechanism within the

National Emergencies Act,” the California Democrat wrote in a letter to her colleagues.

  ”All Members take an oath of office to support and defend the Constitution,” Pelosi added. “The P

resident’s decision to go outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the const

itutional legislative process violates the Constitution and must be terminated. We have a solemn responsibility to up

hold the Constitution, and defend our system of checks and balances against the President’s assault.”

oreigners choose Hohhot over megacities boiled lamb b

Hohhot, capital of North China’s Inner Mongolia autonomous region has seen an influx of foreign residents over the past few years.

Traditionally, megacities such as Beijing and Shanghai have been popular with expats, but many are now choosing lesser known cities such as Hohhot.

Thanks to the city’s rapid economic growth, Hohhot is increasingly seen as an exciting place to live and work.

“I have lived here for nearly 14 years; I love everything here,” said Vincent, an expat from the Philippines.

Vincent came to Hohhot in 2006 to work as a foreign language teacher. S

ince then, he has learnt to speak fluent Chinese and has built a successful career in the city.

Hohhot has changed dramatically over the last few years; there are new expres

sways and significant improvements to public transportation networks, he said.

Most importantly, the city is becoming more and more environmentally friendly, he added.

The local culture has also proved attractive to foreigners arriving in the city.

Jason, an Irish expat, works in the city as a foreign language teacher. He

enjoys learning the local dialect and even decorated his house with red lanterns ove

r Spring Festival, despite not knowing anything about the festival when he first arrived in Hohhot.

I’m really pleased to be working here, and hope that I can make a valuable contribution to the city, he said.

The municipal government plans to continue making the city a welcoming environment for

expat workers, with a host of new preferential policies designed to make the city an attractive place to live in.
