To encourage them to move, Guizhou authorities have used a better schooling for their children as bait,” said Zhang Qing of Guizhou’s provincial Education Department.
“More than 130,000 children will be enrolled in the 1,600 preschool facilities and primary and secondary schools near their urban s
ettlements. Also, 333 nurseries and junior high schools will be built to enroll some 50,000 relocated children,” Zhang added.
To promote educational development and cultivate more high-quality teachers in the country’s central and w
estern regions, China launched a State-level training program for rural primary and middle school teachers in 2010.
Primary school teachers in Guizhou have joined the training at Beijing Normal University.
In September 2014, President Xi Jinping met with teachers from Guizhou who were r
eceiving training at Beijing Normal University. The group of teachers later wrote a letter to Xi.
In a letter of reply to the Guizhou teachers, Xi asked them to lead education reform in poor areas.
ng cell technologies should be established to promote greater transparency, they said, so that before a trial begins scient
ists would need to pass an ethics review and provide a list of names of all participating scientists and institutions.
Universities and research institutes should strengthen education a
nd training in bioethics and scientific and medical professionalism, covering research sci
entists and students of science, medicine and the humanities at all levels, they said.
In addition, more efforts should be undertaken to eliminate prejudice agains
t people with disabilities, which exists in the minds of some scholars, they said. Following the gene-edited baby inci
dent, government departments have vowed to improve supervision, and new regulations are being made or revised.
When the flurry subsided, Berry began to pull the net up and pick carp from it one by one.
Repeating this process one or two times, they had enough carp to deliver to the nearby Kentucky Fish Center owned by An
gie Yu, who also operates Two Rivers Fisheries, the largest Asian carp processor and exporter in the United States.
Berry and Irwin, half-brothers originally from Washington, came to Kentucky to fish for Asian carp in November.
Irwin is a commercial fisherman who has worked all over the world, most recently in Ala
ska during the summer. For three months, he worked 20 – to 22-hour days in Alaskan wate
rs. The pay was good enough to cover a year’s worth of living expenses, but the work was extremely hard.
One day, Irwin read an internet article about Asian carp and commercial fishing in Kentucky, and immediately became interested.
better short-term memory and faster reaction times compared with the control group, acco
rding findings published March 27 in the China-based journal National Science Review.
The study also found that transgenic monkeys’ brains took longer to develop, in a similar fashion to humans.
The experiment has divided the scientific community however, with a number of Western scientists criticizing it as uneth
ical, while some went as far to suggest, perhaps ironically, that it could lead to a Planet of the Apes-type scenario.
The Kunming Institute of Zoology told China Daily in a statement that the experiment was ethically approved in 2010.
In 2015 the animal rights committee of Kunming Biomed International, a research organiza
tion specializing in nonhuman primates, also declared the animals were being treated humanely in every
step of the experiment, in accordance with domestic and international regulations, the statement said.
stepped up efforts in recent years to treat Taiwan compatriots equitably. Last year, the mainland released 31 measures related to ec
onomic and cultural exchanges and cooperation with Taiwan, offering the same opportunities as m
ainland residents enjoy in education, doing business and living on the mainland.
To date, 72 local authorities in 25 provinces, autonomous
regions and municipalities have formulated implementation measures, with many pub
lishing more details, including policy interpretations, public services and contacts, An said.
Over the past year, more than 2,000 enterprises from Taiwan on the mai
nland have benefited from a new favorable tax policy. More than 100 Taiwan companies ha
ve received special funds to support green, intelligent manufacturing and upgrades. A number of companies joined m
jor mainland projects including Beijing’s new airport and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge.
More young people in Taiwan have chosen to pursue their dreams on the mainland, with the number of students w
ho apply for university admission or who seek careers on the mainland showing steady growth, An said.
t impedes China-India relations, some Chinese scholars advise that China take India’s concern more into account. But Liu Zongyi, a senior fellow of the Shanghai I
nstitutes for International Studies, told the Global Times that India should, first of all, mind its approach. Should New Delhi resort to quiet dipl
omacy instead of extensively directing aggressive rhetoric to pressure Beijing, the Azhar issue could have been better addressed.
Terrorism in India poses a significant threat to Indians. Without solid evidence, India has long accu
sed Pakistan of sponsoring terrorist attacks by Jaish-e-Mohammed and other militant groups and China
of providing uncritical support for Pakistan. Instead of simply blaming other countries, especially Pakistan and China, shouldn’t the Indian government ma
ke more self-introspection on its anti-terrorism policy and dwell more on how to better administer the India-controlled part of Kashmir?
China and Pakistan are not enemies of India in countering terrorism. Despite the India-Pakistan dispute, New Delhi has comm
on interests in fighting terrorism with Islamabad and Beijing. It’s suggested India abandon suspicions and the three countries enhance consult
ations on regional security and strengthen anti-terrorism cooperation. Last August for the first time the militaries of India and Pakistan took part in
a mega anti-terror drill of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Russia aimed at expanding cooperation among member countries to de
al with the growing menace of terrorism and extremism. Such momentum shouldn’t be disrupted.
With the approaching general election in India, nationalism could be easi
ly fanned and used by politicians to woo support. Blaming China and Pakistan for the terr
orist attack will arouse Indians’ anxieties over neighboring countries. A tough stance by the BJP government may help the
ruling party win more support. But this will risk anti-terrorism cooperation being sabotaged for the political interests of parties in India.
arrying and starting a family, the 38-year-old has moved twice within the community.
To avoid the morning rush hour, Chen has to get up before 6 am every day and catch the subway to Xicheng district, in the west of the c
ity, before 7 am. His wife, Zhu Zhu, who also works in Xicheng but drives to her job, has to get up at 5 am to avoid traffic congestion.
The 35-year-old said that when she was pregnant and underwent prenatal examinations, the drive to the hospital usually took an hour.
“However, if I encountered a traffic jam, I had to endure a three-hour round trip,” she said.
Regular access to medical services is still a problem. Though the community has six high-quality hospitals and 30 health clinics, Zhu
said she doesn’t trust the quality of service, so if her son falls ill she takes him to the downtown for treatment.
Before buying his apartment, Chen didn’t realize that Changping lacked high-quality schools.
He is now considering renting an apartment in the downtown when his son, now 3, is old enough to attend primary school.
Du has other considerations. Last year, the situation in Tiantongyuan became so bad that he decided to look for a new hom
e in a different neighborhood. He is still looking. “I am still searching for an affordable apartment,” said the financial sector management trainee.
