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.

On Wednesday, Trump will attend commemorative events for the 75th annivers

ary of the D-Day landings in Normandy in northern France, one of the pivotal events of World War II. The queen

presented him with a rare Winston Churchill book about the war, and in her speech on Tuesday, May spoke of the two co

sevelt in 1941, setting out the two leaders’ postwar aims and paving the way for the formation of the United Nations.

Foreign investors’ access to onshore stock index futures

“Moreover, as foreign investors’ trading helps boost liquidity in the domestic market and makes the price changes mor

e consistent with international trends, domestic market participants can also better hedge against risks,” he said.

Experts also expect China to open up the stock index futures mark

et to foreign investors, as they have large exposure in t

he A-share market and are therefore in need of this risk management tool.

Foreign investors’ access to onshore stock index futures is an “infrastructure” for fin

ancial market opening-up, without which foreign investors’ passion for Chinese shares may be dampened, said Wa

ng Maobin, investment department chair at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.

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

Meditation is the easiest way for people to reduce pr

essure, and psychological experts say that thinking of nothing is a mental

adjustment for people, which is

good for health as it can reduce the risk

of anxiety and depression by 25 percent, according to Workers’ Daily.

If people can’t manage their emotions effectively under high pressure, it will

harm their family life, work and social life, experts say.

The suggestion sparked reaction from netizens, with Sina Weibo user

Happy little witch123 asking, “Is it ok if I

accumulate the daily five minutes and me

ditate a hour on one day?” A WeChat user named yuenyuen said, “I’m not

bragging but I can meditate for a whole day.”

Just 20 days after the opening of a

museum of broken relationships in Taiyuan, capit

The future growth prospects of today’s early-stage (that is

lower-income-some growing and others not) developing countries will be of huge importance in red

ucing poverty further. Although these countries face significant headwinds, they could also seize imp

ortant new growth opportunities-especially with the help of digital platforms.

The headwinds are certainly considerable. For starters, advances in digital technolo

gies-robotics, machine learning, sensors, and vision-directly threaten the labor-intensive manu

facturing and assembly upon which lower-income, nonresource-rich economies have traditionally relied.

Moreover, climate change has had its greatest economic impact on the tropical and subtropical regio

ns where most of the lower-income countries are located. The effects of global warming are highly disrup

tive in fragile economies, and, taken together, constitute a major new obstacle to growthle

Learning to work together in an orderly, high trust lev

, and supported by diverse interest groups will prevent conflicts among stakeholders in the South China Sea,” Santarita said.

China is in the midst of implementing a host of reforms, which are focused on opening up its economy to foreign compet

ition and strengthening its private sector. They are needed to upgrade its industries and avoid the dreaded middle-income trap.

Many of these reforms are exactly what the United States is asking for in the trade negotiation

s, but China is actually pursuing these reforms primarily to achieve its own long-term internal economic goals.

He said Asia’s emphasis on “respect for authority, respect for the environm

ent and the discipline to control the use of resources” will also see Asian leaders purs

uing a more eco-friendly development path and honor their commitments to the Paris climate agreement.

“If there is harmony, discipline, stability and the primacy of family and com

munity over the individual, then any problem can be easily addressed,” Santarita said.

As an important power promoting human developm

First, we should act as promoters of exchanges among human civilizations. The mutual depende
