hina takes big step in artemisinin resistance

Nobel Prize winner Tu Youyou’s team on Monday announced major scientific breakthroughs in treatment of artemisinin resistance.

Sweet wormwood was used in ancient Chinese therapy to treat various illnesses, including fevers typical of mala

ria. Nearly five decades ago, Chinese scientists, including Tu, identified its active ingredient, artemisinin.

In 2005, the WHO recommended Artemisinin-based Combin

ation Therapies as the most effective malaria treatment available.

However, the World Malaria Report 2018 published by the World Health Organiza

tion said that after an unprecedented period of success in global malaria control, progress has stalled. Art

emisinin resistance and partner drug resistance has been reported in Greater Mekong subregion.

“Where’d you take her, Brendt? We need to find Yingying,” said Manganaro, who told him earlier that Zhang‘s parents had tra

veled from China to look for her. A group of 600 Chinese students also joined the search.

Christensen answered, “I think it’s time that I stop answering questions” and referred to the presence of a lawyer.

The FBI agent said he was later detained for lying to federal agents, but was released not long after.

Manganaro presented other video evidence showing Christensen driving aroun

Under current party rules, she cannot be challenged again

n for a year, but some on Brady’s committee had pushed for those rules to be change

d in order to try to force her out earlier if she refused to set out a clear departure date.

Boris Johnson, the face of the campaign for Britain to leave the Europea

n Union, said he would stand as a candidate to replace May as Conservative leader.

May’s Brexit deal has been rejected three times by parliament, and weeks of talks with the opposition Labour Party, the idea

of which was deeply unpopular with many Conservatives, have failed to find a consensus on the way forward.

A BBC reporter said on Thursday those talks were due to be

called off soon after the ruling Conservatives gave up on any hope of a resolution.

considerable excitement. True, the company faces similar

bstacles to those that Asian and Latin American platforms previously had to overcome, including a

lack of reliable payment systems, low trust between buyers and sellers, and logistics and deliv

ry bottlenecks. But the experience of other regions shows that these shortcomings can be addressed over time.

Internet regulations must not be disruptive

The bigger risk to these platforms stems from the inevitable and necessary increase in regulation of the internet arou

nd the world. In particular, diverse national regulatory regimes may inadvertently or deliberately disrupt or bloc

k the international development of e-commerce ecosystems, hurting lower-income countries in the process. Avo

iding the creation of such unintended obstacles should therefore be a high priority for the international community.

Chinese exporters have from 20 to 50 percent of the

 US market in other low-value-added markets, plus electrical machinery and equipment, mechanical

appliances, and iron and steel. In most other categories, China has less than 20 percent of the US market.

China also assembles and then exports a lot of phones, computers and other gadgets to the US. But, most of the profits and

wages go to Japanese or South Korean component producers or US-based designers. For example, China ma

kes less than $9 from each iPhone. The total price of a phone is ridiculously counted as a Chinese export to the US.

It’s a good thing that China is no longer a low-wage country. Most Chinese

are much better off than they were even 10 years ago. But it does mean that these lo

w-skilled, labor-intensive industries will be moving to less-developed nations. US tariffs on such products will only se

rve to hasten the transition to higher value-added industries that China has to make anyway.

Bioethics experts call for more oversightand

Four leading ethics scholars in China are urging government authorities to intensify their supervision over scientific resea

rch to reduce the chances of unethical use of biomedical technologies involving gene editing and stem cells.

The appeal, published in the journal Nature on Wednesday, referen

ced a major ethical scandal in November, when a Chinese scientist announced he had pro

duced the world’s first twin human babies whose genes were altered to make them immune to HIV.

Hundreds of Chinese scientists voiced opposition and questioned the safety and effectivene

ss of the procedure following the announcement by He Jiankui, 35, who was an associate professor at So

uthern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, Guangdong province.

While more students are now realizing that studying over

rseas no longer guarantees a well-paid job, the report found that 70 perce

nt of respondents said they do not care about return on investment and are more appr

eciative of other rewards of overseas study experience, including better adaptive ability.

Gao Ang, an undergraduate student at the University of Californi

a, Berkeley, said he does not regret going to the US despite its high cost.

Overseas study provides students with many advantages-their exp

erience tends to equip them with a global mindset and better languag

e and communication skills-important characteristics for future promotion opportunities, he said.

In 2018, 662,100 Chinese people went abroad

to study, up 8.83 percent year-on-year, according to the Ministry of Education.

Xi’s remarks will guide younger generations in taking his

tory as a mirror, and combining their personal ideals with the dream of national rejuvenation, Hu Xianzhong, a senior re

searcher at the China Youth and Children Research Center, said in an article published by China Youth Daily on Sunday.

Since the movement began nearly a century ago, the country’s youth

has been collectively marching with the times and the people under the leadership of the C

PC-whether in periods of revolution, construction, or in the nation’s campaign of reform and openingup, Hu said.

As the centenary of the movement draws near, a good understanding of its history will make yout

hs know more about why their futures are closely connected with the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation so that

they will find their niches and play bigger roles in the country’s socialist cause, he added.

Chen Yuhao, a postgraduate student at the U

niversity of International Business and Economics, said the spirit of patriotism, progress, democracy and s

cience is still the core value of Chinese youth, and should be upheld and carried forward in the new era.

Apart from sightseeing, more Chinese tourists now opt to exp

erience the cultural essence of their destinations by visiting local museums.

Over the past three years, visitors to Chinese museums have been growing by about 100 mi

llion each year, Liu Yuzhu, head of the National Cultural Heritage Administration, told reporters earlier this year.

During the week-long Spring Festival Holiday in 2019, more than 40 percent of the 415 milli

on domestic tourists visited museums, a report from the China Tourism Academy showed.
