employment, especially for college students, is of great

importance for economic development and social stability.

To better secure the employment of

graduates, government at all levels issued policies to redu

ce discriminatory practices these new

graduates may encounter when hunting for a job.

For example, the Ministry of Human

Resource and Social Security said in February that employees are not allowed to def

ine positions based on gender or to ask for a female job-seekers’ marital status, to protect women’ rights in the job market.

Also, the Ministry of Education required colleges to reinforce campus recruitment activ

ities, prohibiting discriminatory information concerning gender, nationality and college levels.

According to the ministry, the number of college graduates is projected to reach a record high of 8.34 million this year, up by 140,000 from 2018.

This facial recognition app tells one panda from another

Having trouble discerning one furry panda from another? A facial recognition app will make it easy for you.

The app is developed by the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pandas

along with researchers in Singapore Nanyang Technological university and Sichuan Normal University.

The image analysis research kicked off in 2017. A database now contains about 120,000 images and 10,000 video clips of giant pandas.

Close to 10,000 panda pictures have been analyzed, marked and annotated.

Using the database, researchers are able to carry out automa

tic facial recognition on panda faces to tell one animal from another, the center said.

A possible measure to reduce the hidden debt wou

A possible measure to reduce the hidden debt wou

uld be to separate the government-owned assets from that of the companies and let the State-owned businesses run by thems

elves, said experts close to the matter. This is particularly so for some public and infrastructure construction proj

ects. But it also means that the local governments will not be undertaking the default risks.

Experts said the minister‘s viewpoint is a signal that the authori

ties are determined to solve the vexed debt issue with more details set to emerge later and star

t a national campaign for preventing systemic financial risks, amid rising external trade challenges.

Other measures could include selling part of the State-owned assets, rest

ructuring the State-owned enterprises, or reorganizing projects, said Liu.

Beijing still open to talks, but will not bow to tariffs: China Daily

Beijing still open to talks, but will not bow to tariffs: China Daily

ith China retaliating in kind to the United States hiking the existing “punitive” tariffs on Chinese go

ods, the world was not left long in suspense wondering how Beijing would react to Washington putt

ing the kibosh on what was evidently an impending trade deal in such a high-handed manner.

With hindsight, it is easy to see that despite the product

ive efforts of the two negotiating teams, such a scenario was perhaps inevitable.

The US administration has made it clear on more than one occasion

that it wants to halt China‘s development in its tracks and therefore it is questionable whether it

has any real interest in striking a trade deal that is not tilted entirely to its advantage.

While Beijing, on its part, has consistently responded to Washin

gton’s attempts to turn the screws on it by each time giving it a sharp rap across the knuckles.

There are more than 40 commercial fishermen dedi

There are more than 40 commercial fishermen dedi

cated to catching Asian carp in western Kentucky. The long-term prospects offered by ex

cessive numbers of the species are what Berry and Irwin are relying on to ensure work until they retire.

Berry said: “We want a bigger boat. From what we see out there, we confidently think we can catch

anywhere from 13,000 to 23,000 kg a day with a purse seine type of net. The schools of fish are massive.”

Once a school is located, a skiff encircles it with a purse seine

net. The lead line is then pulled in to close the net, preventing fish from escaping.

“The way we are fishing now, we start the net off at the bow of the boa

t,” Berry said. “But we are missing fish because we are not going fast enough.”

He said he and Irwin are saving and plan to reinvest all their money o

n equipment. A bigger boat would also help. They have to del

iver two to three times a day because the one they use can only hold up to 1,360 kg of fish.

Because of the advanced basic research and the imp

roved research environment, I think there’s no doubt that China will see more innovati

on on the development of cancer drugs and cancer treatment research in the future,” he said.

Chen said most Chinese scientists and researchers focus on translational resear

ch that applies a new discovery from basic research and moves it along toward clinical practice.

“But I think Chinese scientists need to focus more on making innovative and new dis

coveries from basic research and develop new methods for cancer treatment from that,” he said.

China and the US are working together in many medical research areas, Chen said, citing the clinical practice cooperation bet

ween China and large US pharmaceutical companies, which he said is “huge now”.

But if the stock-image platform doesn’t get authoriza

But if the stock-image platform doesn’t get authoriza

ion but still asks for compensation by resorting to litigation, I think such behavior may be an alleged fraud,” he said.

The core of the problem lies in whether stock-image providers get authorization from copyright owners, he added.

Zhao Zhanling, a legal researcher who specializes in intellectual p

roperty cases at the China University of Political Science and Law, agreed, but said copyri

ght owners and institutes given copyright authorization should respect this right and not abuse it for gain.

He said stock-image companies need to make authorization a priority in their opera

tions and pay more effort to finding a balance between commercial interest and public interest.

The litigation right that is to safeguard copyrights must not be abused, he added.
