Trade agreements can affect the types of goods being

traded and they can redirect trade toward one country, away

from others. They cannot directly affect any country’s worldwide current account balance. A count

ry that saves less than it invests will have to borrow foreign funds to import foreign goods to make up that difference.

There are two ways to reduce the US trade deficit. A serious recession would reduce investme

nt, but nobody advocates that as a strategy. The only other path is to change the US financial and gove

rnment system to encourage increased savings. China has almost nothing to do with it.

Ironically, the disputes between the US and China center around both nations’ legitimate desires to

protect some current low-skilled jobs, or at least to allow an easier transition to new jobs and industries.

US administration’s economic policy has rightly focused on the need to

retain jobs for working-class people in the US. And, China’s companies that export to the U

were fully or partially disabled and in need of regular nursing services, she said.

“With more nurses and nurse’s aides, the demand for nursing services from the elderly will be gradually met,” she said.

The commission will also encourage community health centers to provide more nursin

g services for the elderly in neighborhoods, Jiao said. They would include more beds and setting up day-care centers.

Regulations will also be released to encourage community health centers to pro

vide beds to the elderly at home, so family doctors can provide treatment there, she said.

“The disabled, whether fully or partial, will be the priority in nursing services,” Jiao sa

id. “We will release a detailed standard for evaluating nursing services for the disabled elderly

In the years since, the country has continued to maint

tain a breakneck pace of economic development, which has brought booming economic prosperity.

Unfortunately, it has also brought a deteriorating environment. Seeing heavy smog, for ex

ample, many people feel that a worsening environment will destroy the happiness brought by economic growth.

Since 2012, the new leadership under President Xi Jinping has put forward a series of ecol

ogical ideas. On Sunday, Xi said at the opening ceremony of the exhibition that “green mountains and cle

ar waters are indeed mountains of gold and silver, and environmental improvement means great productivity”.

This idea, dubbed the theory of two mountains, enjoys immense popular support in China.

Xi, who is also general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party o

f China, urged officials at all levels never to sacrifice the environment for economic growth.

ment such as respiratory and nutrition supports, said Xiong Hui, Beijing Medical Association rare disease c

Spinraza debuted on the Chinese mainland having been fast-tracked through the marke

portunities for all UN member states to propose experiments they want to conduct using China’s space station,” said Simone

tta Di Pippo, director of the UNOOSA. “We have received more than 40 proposals before the deadline for sub

Ma Xiaoguang, spokesman for the State Council’s Taiw

wan Affairs Office, said in a statement on Tuesday that the exercise aimed to protect national sover

eignty and territorial integrity, as well as protect the common interests of people from both sides of the straits.

Taiwan’s administration, led by the Democratic Progressive Party, used the drill as an opport

unity to “deceive and mislead the residents of Taiwan and to provoke and escalate a cross-Straits confrontation,” Ma said.

“Its goal of undermining cross-Straits relations and the peace and security of the region will not succeed,” Ma said. “Nobo

dy should underestimate our adamant resolve and ability to protect national sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

On Tuesday, Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen said she will not be intimidated by the military d

rill, calling the exercise “a threat to Taiwan” and an act of “coercion”, the island’s media reported.

Tsai also thanked the United States for considering a deal with Taiwan to renew a $500

million training program in the US for Taiwan F-16 pilots and maintenance crews.

donors exceeded 104,000 – more than three times the number for 2015, according to the center.

Instead of solely emphasizing high yields, the Green Su

 Super Rice project is geared to guarantee stable yields while beefing up crops’ resistance against drought, flooding and diseases,” Li said.

“Thus, farmers are able to save a large amount of resources, such as fertilizers or irrigation water, to fight those issues,” he added.

The sustainability of the approach is welcomed by Philippine agricultural researchers and farmers, according to Jose

Yorobe, a consultant with the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines. He attended a meeting in Beij

ing on Tuesday, along with dozens of representatives from participant countries, that marked the project’s conclusion.

“Because of climate change and population growth, developing countries are now pressured to increase rice prod

uctivity,” he said. “Some high-yield modern varieties are still vulnerable to inclement weather, pests and disease.”

April 1 is a special day for fans of Leslie Cheung. This yea

arks the 16th anniversary of the death of the singer and actor due to depression.

“I am who I am, a different colored sparkle. I love myself, just like the blooming rose wa

iting to flourish even in the desert,” Leslie Cheung sang in one of his musical masterpieces I. He is consi

dered “one of the founding fathers of Cantopop” for achieving huge success both in film and music.

Starting his career as a singer in 1977, Cheung rose to fame six

years later thanks to the song The Wind Blows On. He has released many popular albums and r

eceived numerous music awards, including being honored as Asia’s Biggest Superstar at the 2000 CCTV-MTV Music Honors.

However, there’s much more to him, beyond his superior musical accomplishments. In the late 1980s, he shifted

his career focus to the movie industry and shaped many classic roles that no one can rival, even to this day.

Some have said you might not really know Leslie Cheung’s music, but you’ve probably seen at least one or two of his sentimental films.

“He is a top Asian giant, has exciting stage performances, astonishing beauty and excellent acting skills,” a CNN report once said about him.
