Since the early 21st century, vaccination rates for newborns and children in China have remained steady at more than 90 percent.

During an event last week to mark the annual National Child Vaccination Awareness Day, which falls on April 25 each ye

ar, he said that more than 300 million cases of infectious diseases, including polio, diphtheria and measles, had been avoided in China.

Restoring public confidence in vaccines and maintaining a high vaccination rate have emerged as global health issues recently, as an increasing number of count上海千花网品茶微信

ries, including the United States, Italy and the Philippines, have observed increasing or even record-breaking surges of measles in the past two years.

The WHO blamed vaccine hesitancy, meaning reluctance or refusal to take vaccinations on u

irector of Washington-based National Organization fo

 for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, which advocates for legalization of marijuana in the US, told China Daily.

“For instance, Idaho says that all marijuana, including hem

p and products derived from hemp are illegal in the state. So, the federal government lifting the b]

an on hemp doesn’t change the fact that in Idaho these products are still illegal,” he said.

For a CBD product to be legal, it requires that a state h

as amended its laws on the same terms as the federal law, Armentano said.

But confusing rules about CBD oil led to some predatory companie]

s entering the market and selling poor quality products with potential adulterants, he said.

“We don’t know what’s in the products, we don’t know the amount of active components in these products and we don’t

know what sort of standards are used by the companies in the manufacturing of these products,” he said.

The results of the elections for the European Parliame

nt are broadly in line with expectations. Although pro-European Union parties have won a majori

ty of the seats, the EP is more fragmented than before with traditional center-right and center-left par

ties losing seats to Liberals and Greens, and Euroskeptic parties increasing their vote share. This is likely to

make it more difficult for the EU to agree new trade deals and choose new leaders for EU institutions.

The heads of government of EU states met on Tuesday to discuss who will fill the top jobs.

The new EP and the EU leadership face a difficult international environment, especially on th

e trade front. The United States administration, already engaged in a tariff war with China, has its sights on the

EU as well, describing the bloc as “a foe”. The US has imposed 25 percent tariffs on European steel and aluminum an

d threatened to slap similar tariffs on European cars unless the EU opens up its agricultural market.

The new water-hydrogen engine, produced by the Chin

Youngman Automobile Group Co, has been the subject of visits from top city officials

and been praised by Zhang Wenshen, Party chief in Nanyang, according to the report.

Following the report, the engine sparked discussion and debate, because it runs contrary to the principles of physics.

Nanyang’s bureau of industry and information technology said the report made mis

takes and conveyed incorrect information, ultimately misleading readers, Beijing News reported.

The bureau highlighted that the project is still being tested and has yet to gain approval from industrial

authorities, adding that the production company’s head has been required to fully explain the technology behind the engine.

Pang Qingnian, 61, chairman of the China Yongman Automobile Group, said the project was established in 2006, and that the e

ngines can convert water into hydrogen and then use the hydrogen to generate electricity, which then fuels vehicles.

Faced with deep-rooted structural weakness, several large

eral large developing countries are struggling to recover from recessions or remain trapped on a low growth path.

The report highlights that per capita income growth in several parts of Africa, western Asia, L

atin America and the Caribbean is expected to remain very weak in the outlook period. That poses ad

ditional challenges for the Sustainable Development Goals, including the goal to universally eradicate poverty by 2030.

The report further notes that while poverty remains predominantly

rural, further progress on poverty-reduction also hinges on the effective management of o

ngoing urbanization. That is particularly relevant for Africa and South Asia, the two regions with the highest num

ber of people in poverty, which are expected to experience the most rapid pace of urbanization in the next two decades.

That China has responded to the US trade aggression in

such a restrained manner and conducted the talks with the utmost sincerity may have misled the US administration into thinking it has pushed Beijing onto the back foot.

But China’s responsible attitude and its desire to settle the dispute through consultations should not be viewed as signs of weakness.

Indeed, its stance could not be clearer: The US can persist in trying to coerce China into acce

pting its unreasonable demands, but no matter how hard it tries, China will not knuckle under.

China does not want to enter into a trade war with the US; but that does not mean it is afraid of one.

China agreed to hold trade talks with the US not because it feared what the

US might do or because it is worried about losing its trade with the US, but because it

genuinely believes that dialogue is the best way for countries to resolve their differences and find ways to benefit each ot

her, and because, as a responsible country, it always keeps the bigger picture and longer time frame in mind.

To avoid such a situation, fathers should share the

 responsibilities of raising a child in equal measure, which w

ill ease the burden on the mothers as well as help the children learn more diverse life skills.

If fathers do not share the responsibilities of raising a c

hild, the mother-child bond could become so insulated that even the father might find it hard

to become part of it. Therefore, Chinese women would do good to take a step back and involve their husbands in hou

sehold affairs, including in raising children. Women should learn to refuse to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the fam

ily and, instead, work to fulfill their other goals in life, including building their careers, and ask their husbands to fu

lfill their part of the obligations to the family even if it means going against tradition.

Li Qiang, director of the Shenzhou Institute’s postgradua

raduate department, said China has trained hundreds of foreign space engineers since the mid-1990s.

However, those training sessions were mostly occasional, often accompanied a satellite export deal, and were mainly focu

sed on ground-based control and applications of satellites rather than their design and production, the director said.

“However, in recent years, along with the expansion in our cooperation in the space indu

stry with other countries, many of our foreign partners voiced their hopes that we could hold some sort of syst

ematic training programs to help them create their own spacecraft designers and technicians,” he said.

Therefore, he said, “We decided to open a two-year postgraduate prog

ram and then sent the message to countries having space cooperation with China.”

Benat opened the scoring for the home side with a

spectacular 41st minute free kick, but Borja Baston equalized four minutes later in a game in which both teams looked flat in their third game in seven days.

Leganes and Celta Vigo drew 0-0, which draws Celta a point closer to

survival and means they remain unbeaten since Iago Aspas returned to the side after injury.

In overseas ventures, insurance gives firms a sure footing

Overseas investment inevitably means risks and uncertainties for Chinese comp

anies, but many have started using insurance services to help control and reduce risks.

“Chinese companies face new situations while investing overseas, namely that global politi

cs and economics have become more complex,” said Wang Tingke, general manager of China Export and Cr

edit Insurance Corporation, or Sinosure, China’s State-funded policy-oriented insurance company.

“So while going abroad, Chinese companies need to i

ncrease their awareness of risks and set up comprehensive risk management systems.”

New plan puts greater water efficiency on tap

An action plan has been introduced to tighten water consumption as part of high-quality development moves, which aims to improve

efficiency in the use of natural resources and better protect the environment while boosting economic growth.

By 2020, water consumption per 10,000 yuan ($1,487) of GDP is expect

ed to drop by 23 percent from that in 2015, with a 20-percen

t reduction in using water to produce 10,000 yuan in industrial added value, according to the plan promulgated by t

he National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Water Resources on April 15.

In addition, China’s overall water consumption will be constrained within 670 billion c

ubic meters by 2022, with improved conservation, the document said. Furthermore, the figure will be con

trolled within 700 cu m with water conservation and recycling at a world-leading level by 2035.
