Nor would it adopt a double standard and criticize China’s efforts to counter terrorism and extremism. Last year, tourists fr

om home and abroad paid more than 150 million trips to Xinjiang, thanks to the improved security situation in

the region. That Xinjiang has not witnessed any violent or terrorist incidents in recent years proves the effect

iveness of the joint efforts of the government and local people in maintaining regional peace and stability.

Xinjiang is undoubtedly in its best development stage in histo

ry. Facts speak louder than words, but still they cannot wake up persons pretending to be asleep.

The targeting of Hikvision is just par for the course for the curren

Moreover, China’s economic development in the past three de

 decades has prompted a huge rise in urbanization, which has see

n large numbers of unattached young people from rural areas move to large cities in sea

rch of work. Their work-dominated lifestyles mean few have friends to share meals with.

To feed this massive market, catering companies have started providi

ng more options tailored to single customers. Meituan-Dianping, a popular food del

ivery company, told the Financial Times that 65 percent of its orders come from unmarried customers.

On food delivery platforms, many restaurants offer meal deals specifically for singletons. Pizza Hut provides 15-centimeter, o

ne-person bases, while stir-fry restaurants offer reduced portions or meal deals consisting of just one or two dishe

s and a bowl of rice, compared with traditional meals that must contain at least three main dishes plus a soup.

Universities were urged to strengthen regulation of indepen

 independent enrollment of students with special talents.

Independent enrollment was added as an admission alternative a decade ago to allow some key uni

versities to enroll students they choose fit. Tests of academic competence and interviews are usually required.

However, the rise of fraud cases in independent enrollment in re

cent years has tainted the practice’s reputation and caught the authorities’ attention.

underlines legacy of Long Marchnping visits a museum mark

President Xi Jinping encouraged the Chinese people to be prepared for a new Long March to

ward national rejuvenation during a visit to a revolutionary base in Jiangxi province on Monday.

“We came here to the starting point of the Long March to exper

ience the situation of the Red Army’s departure during those years. Now there is a new Long

March, and we should make a new start,” Xi said at a memorial park in Yudu county, Ganzhou.

The Long March covered over 12,500 kilometers from October 1934 to October 1936. It was a military

maneuver carried out by the Red Army and led by the Communist Party of China to combat the Ku

omintang regime. The expedition, beginning in Yudu, laid the foundation for the Party’s victory.

On the heels of the United States government announcement it will ban unauthorized exports of US technology to Hua

wei, by Monday, a number of major US tech giants, including Google, had reportedly stopped supplies.

Amid the escalating tit-for-tat trade blows between the world’s tw

o largest economies, the US putting Huawei, the face of Chinese hi-tech progress, on its Ent

ity List is no doubt a calculated blow to hit China and Huawei where it hurts. “America will probably use its ability to with

hold components from Huawei as a bargaining chip in a future trade deal with China,” The Economist reckons.

When the desired train tickets are not available at the tick

et booking site and the app of the China Railway Corporation, a person can use the “waiting” function, and the system will add the wanted ticket information to a list.

One person could make an order for three tickets in the waiting list, and the function will be

free and much more efficient than other third-party software to grab tickets, according to the operator.

When ticket buyers cancel or change their tickets, the system will allocate the returned tickets to waiting buyers on the list.

To use this function, people have to pass a verification process on their status through facial recognition.

They will have to prepay the maximum price for each ticket, and once the

He said that some springs in a village called Haikou had drie

“The villagers are doing everything they can to have enough drinki

The region is also at greater risk of forest fires because of the high temperatures and low humidity.
