Makerere University don Professor Augustus Nuwagaba has called for amendments to existing laws to empower parliament with transcending powers to influence arrest, prosecution and recovery of loot from thieving government officials. He notes that although Parliament’s oversight committees like the Public Accounts committee have been very instrumental in pointing out cases of corruption and misuse of government resources, they have no powers to follow the implementation of their recommendations by other government agencies.

As part of a shake-up of youth custody, the government wants groups such as those behind free schools to get involved in providing teaching for young offenders.Ministers say the cost of detaining young people is several times that of sending them to private school, but that the majority leave without the skills for life outside.
One offender, aged 17, told the BBC getting qualifications while serving his sentence at Cookham Wood Prison was an important step in preparing for his release. The suspected killer of a priest in a French church was being monitored by police and wearing a tag at the time of the attack, prosecutors say. China's collectibles' market hit a high in 2011, but then the bubble burst, leaving private vendors and craftsman desperate for sales. Having lived off his "feathery art" for more than four decades, attending to the needs of a select band of customers from his private workshop, Xiao Guangchun has finally decided to open a public work space in a business center in east Beijing.
The craft the 60-something craftsman diligently learned, painstakingly practiced and now jealously guards from everyone except his children is called diancui, which means "dipping blue", and involves applying kingfisher feathers to the surfaces of gold jewelry. The technique has been employed for centuries, especially to add a beautiful dash of shimmering blue or indigo to the gold and gilt silver accessories that adorned the ladies of the imperial court. However, a few years ago, the antique market entered a prolonged downward spiral from which it has yet to recover. According to Ji Tao, an auctioneer-cum-researcher in Beijing, the collapse of the stock market in the second half of 2014 dealt a fatal blow to the auction market. Guardian Auctions, one of China's biggest auction houses, reported it had 5,800 items in its 2015 spring fair, down 12 percent from the previous year. Among the hardest hit were people he describes as "short-term investors" - those with scant knowledge who had entered the booming market between 2009 and 2011 in search of quick profits. Another affected group is at the other end of the spectrum - people who trade petty antiques, have no brick and mortar stores and travel from city to city to attend open-air bazaars. The twice-yearly Zhengzhou Antiques Fair used to be one of the biggest events for grassroots antiques traders.
Zhang Xiaoying, from the Suzhou Store, said the vendors, mindful of the situation, lowered the prices of their merchandise - mostly antique jade - by as much as 20 percent. No one returned home without realizing a sale, said Li Xuejian, from the Tianjin Municipal Antique Store, who attended the party. For Xiao, who in 2013 was officially designated a "master of China's intangible cultural heritage" by the Beijing municipal government, the market turmoil has disrupted the peace of mind that's so essential to the practice of his art.
As an auctioneer-cum-researcher, Ji Tao not only witnessed but participated as China's art and antiques market reveled in an unprecedented upsurge in the spring of 2011. However, not everyone was hit equally hard, and some people escaped relatively unscathed, according to Ji. This is where Ji believes the biggest misconceptions about collecting lie among nonprofessionals. Yang Zhenbin, from the State-owned Suzhou Municipal Antique Store, believes the market downturn has had a sifting effect, which will result in credible dealers eventually surfacing as winners.
The Suzhou store also offers free connoisseur consultations for members of the public every month or so, partly to maintain its reputation as an authoritative establishment and partly to increase sales. Wang Ge, an antiques dealer who recently opened a store in Beijing, said the overheated market needed to have a metaphorical bucket of ice poured over it: "People's sense could only be restored once they started to lose money. Wang opened her own antiques store in Beijing earlier this year, having gained a MA degree in the study of artifacts at Durham University in the United Kingdom. For a few years, while the market was on an upswing, China's fuerdai, or second-generation rich, had collectively dabbled in the treacherous yet tempting waters of antique collecting, using the financial clout accumulated by their entrepreneurial parents. There, the young girl encountered many low-level dealers - men and women who she now knows were classified as "groundcombers". According to Wang, while some of the groundcombers have since climbed the ladder to become her neighbors at a newly-built, well-equipped antiques market in the Chinese capital, the majority of these humble traders from her father's day simply faded away as the items they sought became increasingly hard to find. In February, Wang returned to Hefei and paid a visit to the outdoor antique market, her childhood haunt. Major players in China's logistics industry are eyeing expansion following a decision by the central government to fully integrate the sector with the internet, boosting efficiency and reducing waste considerably. The decision was made at an executive meeting of the State Council, which was presided over by Premier Li Keqiang on Wednesday. According to the statement, an information-sharing system and national standards will be established to govern this field. The meeting also decided that new models will be developed for efficient and convenient logistics, promoting integration of logistics with the manufacturing sector, trade and commerce, and the financial sector.
The State Council's decision is timely and encouraging, especially when major domestic logistics companies are seeking initial public offerings and looking for new growth opportunities, said Yu Weijiao, chairman of YTO Express (Logistics) Co Ltd based in Shanghai.
China has grown from the world's largest courier nation to a logistics power and the integration of logistics and the internet will surely incubate more industries and opportunities, Yu said.
The decision can be regarded a follow-up of the country's Internet Plus strategy Premier Li put forward first in last March as a way of economic restructuring. For a long time, the nation's urban and rural areas have been deeply separated from each other, hindering exchanges of agricultural and manufactured goods between villages and cities. For the logistics industry, the integration of the internet and logistics is a key step in transforming and moving China's manufacturing sector up the value chain, said Richard Loi, president of UPS China. By improving its logistics infrastructure through using the internet and new technologies, China can benefit from greater competitiveness in the logistics industry and increase the efficiency of global trade, said Loi. A spokesman for the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security said at a news conference on July 22 that increasing the age of retirement would have limited influence on employment and would not reduce individuals' pensions. The China Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning on food safety during the summer flood season. The State Administration of Grain has also issued an urgent announcement on grain storage during the summer flood season.
According to the Ministry of Finance, 1.5 billion yuan ($224 million) has been budgeted for national mountain flood disaster prevention and control work this year. The Ministry of Transport has recently announced on its website a new regulation on flight delays, which will take effect from Jan, 1, 2017. The Ministry of Education has issued a regulation on preventing and dealing with academic misconduct in higher education institutions, which requires colleges and universities to establish a specific department to receive reports of academic misconduct.
The executive meeting of the State Council, China's Cabinet, has deployed special projects on national scientific and technological innovation, and internet plus logistics for the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20) period, as well as a regulation on the national functionary oath of office. The General Office of the State Council has issued a guidance on intellectual property reform. The Ministry of Civil Affairs and the Ministry of Finance have jointly issued a circular on the central government's policy supporting the pilot reform of home- and community-based old-age care services. The State Council has approved the launch of comprehensive intellectual property reform in the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City. To guarantee the smooth implementation of reform and opening-up in pilot free trade zones, the State Council has decided to temporarily adjust 18 administrative laws and regulations, four documents issued by the Cabinet, and four department regulations it previously approved in the pilot free trade zones. Five departments including the Ministry of Land and Resources, the Ministry of Finance, and the Ministry of Environmental Protection, have jointly released guidance on enhancing environmental restoration and comprehensive management of mining geology.
The National Development and Reform Commission said on Monday that government investment has not crowded out private investors, and the central authorities will make every effort to facilitate private investment. Zhang Yong, vice-minister of the NDRC, said at a news briefing on deepening reform of the investment and financing system that there's no crowding out effect of government investment on private investment, because "government investment and private investment focus on different fields". According to Zhang, investment by governments at various levels using national budgeted funds accounts for only 5 percent of overall national investment. In recent years, the government has seldom invested in manufacturing and real estate industries, and the main focus of government investment is fields where private investors would not like to invest, Zhang said. But the sharp decline of private investment in the first half of this year shows the sluggish momentum of "endogenous"- or internal - investment growth and the remarkable pressure of the economic downturn, said Xu Kunlin, deputy secretary-general of the NDRC. Zhang said it would be difficult for private investment to maintain its high growth rate given that China is entering a new normal of medium to high economic growth. The manufacturing sector, where private investment is concentrated, faces great challenges due to the global economic downturn and domestic economic transition. The State Council issued a document on July 18 addressing the deepening reform of the investment and financing system. With the approach of the G20 Summit in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, authorities have imposed rules to manage small aircraft and "flying objects" - including unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones.
The gathering, for the governments and central bank governors of 20 major world economies, will be held in Hangzhou on Sept 4 and 5.
It has been held twice a year since 2000 and is designed to enhance international economic cooperation and decision-making.
Provincial and city-level governments are authorized to impose temporary measures against small aircraft and other flying objects, under a directive by the Standing Committee of the Provincial People's Congress, the province's top legislative body. The Zhejiang Public Security Department said aircraft subject to the measures are those that either fly slow or at very low altitude, or that are difficult for radar to spot. In some areas, small aircraft and other objects are totally banned during the summit period. They also include some districts and townships in a number of other cities, including Huzhou and Shaoxing. Police authorities in the province will work with the departments of civil aviation, meteorology and sports affairs to have aircraft registered. A notice issued by the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau said such activities were allowed if approved by the city's air traffic control department. A screen grab of the Forest of Stone Steles Museum's micro blog says the facility appreciates netizens' support for the cats. This simple message warmed many hearts on Monday afternoon as a museum in Shaanxi province announced that it would not force three cats out of their home.
On the internet, the museum is not just famous for its ancient epigraphs and stone sculptures with masters' calligraphy but also for several widely-photographed stray cats. Yet the cats almost got kicked out last week after a child who tried to play with a baby kitten was scratched by its protective mother. Thousands of posts supporting the kittens have been put online, and many news outlets voiced their support. The museum's management board considered public opinion and decided after holding a meeting on Monday morning that the kittens should stay, Li said. Wang Liqun, founder of the Good Dog Good Cat Companion Center, a Beijing-based volunteer group dedicated to helping stray dogs and cats since 1996, gave a thumbs up to the museum's latest call. Taking care of more than 270 stray dogs and 60 cats out of her own pocket, Wang knows more than many what works best for deserted pets. The framed photos of 26 people who died in a tour bus fire in Taiwan on July 19 are escorted to a memorial hall in Taoyuan city on Monday. Investigators said late on Sunday that five plastic bottles filled with gasoline may have exacerbated a bus fire that claimed the lives of all 26 passengers on board on July 19. A bus with 24 mainland tourists, along with the driver and a Taiwan tour guide, crashed last week into the outer edge of a guardrail.
The Taoyuan District Prosecutors Office detected residue of flammable liquid on the bus and later confirmed the presence of five bottles filled with gasoline. Two bottles were found near the driver's seat and three on the lower deck of the luggage compartment. Investigators on Sunday collected forensic samples from the driver and the tour guide to identify their exact locations during the fire. The investigation later revealed that passengers had clogged the stairs to the emergency exit, but the door was not opened.
Prosecutors are investigating whether fatalities could have been minimized and whether they were caused by fire spreading too fast or by a jammed door that didn't allow passengers to escape. More questions emerged as to why bottles of gasoline were taken on board and if they were mistaken for water and subsequently thrown on the blazing fire.
According to prosecutors, since most tour buses operating in Taiwan are diesel-powered, the five bottles of gasoline could not have been intended for fuel. According to other bus drivers, gasoline is useful for scraping chewing gum or pen marks from the seats and walls of a bus. Moreover, even if the emergency exit had been jammed, the door beside the driver's seat should have been working. Taiwan's former leader Ma Ying-jeou was among the local representatives who mourned the dead at the ceremony.
Rainwater is pumped out of a jar in the Forbidden City after heavy downpours in Beijing last week. When media published a set of photos showing the 600-year-old Palace Museum, or Forbidden City, free of floods despite the heavy rain on July 20, online discussions quickly followed. Netizens were impressed by the old complex's drainage ability and compared the pictures with other photos and videos showing many flooded roads within Beijing after the tremendous downpour. The ancient drainage system still functions well and has worked with modern systems to keep the palace safe from floods, according to Shan Jixiang, curator of the museum. Built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the Forbidden City has been well maintained over the past few centuries.
Three types of drainage systems - for buildings, surface runoff and underground - make up the system at the site.



The palace's three front halls are built on three steps whose drainage holes at their bases prevent the steps from flooding. Artificial drainage systems, including ditches, culverts and drain holes complete the network. Studies and monitoring have been carried out to see if the old system will be able to continue meet the weather challenges.
Shan said museum staffers divided the system according to different zones of the palace and made plans to thoroughly flush it out over the next five years.
The museum has also made plans to deal with floods or emergency situations that may require the evacuation of visitors, Shan said. Chang'an Avenue, a major and iconic thoroughfare in Beijing, is undergoing a face-lift that involves adding Chinese elements, Beijing Youth Daily reported on Monday. Chang'an Avenue is an east to west 10-lane road where some of the most recognized landmarks, such as Tian'anmen Square, the Forbidden City and the leadership compound of Zhongnanhai, are located. The main section of Chang'an Avenue starts from Gongzhufen to Guomao, within the 3rd Ring Road. New infrastructure will include traditional Chinese elements such as lotuses and auspicious clouds, the Beijing Municipal Commission of City Administration and Environment said. The lotus and auspicious clouds are among many patterns that Chinese use to invoke good luck and best wishes. An electronic station board will keep time and tell how many stops are left when a bus approaches. According to Xu Congyi, an architect with the Beijing Institute of Architectural Design, the pattern on the manholes is taken from the stairs of the main temples in the Forbidden City. Yan Jianfeng, department chief of the city commission, said new designs for guardrails, station boards, bus stations and manhole covers have been approved. The overpasses at Dongdan will be upgraded to echo the style of the overpass at Xidan, adding a barrier-free path. Editor's Note: China Daily is publishing a series of reports on universities jointly established by education institutions from China and overseas. Its liberal arts model of education distinguishes United International College from mainland universities and other foreign cooperative universities, according to UIC president Ng Ching-fai. Ng Ching-fai, former president of Hong Kong Baptist University, aimed to introduce liberal arts education to the mainland's higher education system when he helped establish UIC in Zhuhai, Guangdong province, with Beijing Normal University.
It was the first higher education institution established by a mainland university and a Hong Kong university. UIC started its first academic year in 2005 with 274 students and has grown to 5,150 students. The new enrollment system applies to high school graduates from Guangdong province, who take up about 40 percent of UIC's annual enrollment. To broaden their knowledge, UIC students are required to earn half their credits through liberal studies and elective courses. For example, students can learn to play the guqin - a seven-stringed plucked instrument used in ancient times - as well as shadow puppetry and Chinese archery, all of which are special courses rarely seen in other universities. To cultivate servant leaders, the school requires students to do volunteer work to get credit, and they are encouraged to participate in social events on and off campus - joining a club or even starting their own businesses. Beijing Normal University and Hong Kong Baptist University jointly founded United International College in Zhuhai, Guangdong province, in 2005. UIC graduates will receive bachelor's degrees of Hong Kong Baptist University and graduation certificates of United International College.
Teaching staff comes from more than 30 countries and regions, which makes it possible for UIC to use English as the language of instruction. Every year, more than half of UIC graduates opt for postgraduate studies in Hong Kong and abroad.
The construction of an additional 20-hectare campus will be completed in August or September, 2017. China's Sansha city has decided to allocate 5 million yuan ($748,000) annually for maritime environmental conservation in the next three years. A first round of special environmental funding worth 1 million yuan was earmarked on Saturday for exploration of the newly confirmed world's deepest underwater sinkhole, or blue hole, in the Xisha Islands. The funds will be used to support scientific research and development of new methods and equipment in environmental protection, said Shi Guoning, a senior official in Sansha's Land Resources and Environmental Protection Bureau. Over the past four years, the city has invested more than 30 million yuan in the treatment and restoration of reefs and islets, according to the bureau. It has also organized the breeding of fish and sea turtles, which have been released into the sea six times.
Sansha was officially established in 2012 to administer the Xisha, Zhongsha and Nansha island groups and their surrounding waters in the South China Sea.
The young entrepreneur attributes the achievements to his four-years of study at United International College.
The society used UIC's long summer vacation - three months - to raise funds to establish a primary school in a remote mountain village in Guizhou province.
The members traveled to the Inner Mongolia autonomous region and to Hunan and Guizhou provinces, recruiting 1,000 volunteers in each place. The county government, where the primary school was located, also provided a 1.4 million yuan supplement for the school. The Chen Jia Zhai Primary School opened in 2013 and brought hope to more than 200 rural kids.
In his junior year, Jia and some classmates borrowed a total of 1 million yuan from their families and friends and opened a restaurant. After graduation, Jia established Bee+, a working community in the high-tech zone near campus that has become an entrepreneurship base for young people. Jia's team transformed several storage containers into a place where young entrepreneurs share offices, meeting rooms, a lecture hall, a restaurant, a bar and a gym. Attracted by the UIC's idea of international education, Jia, from Inner Mongolia, traveled south to the fledgling school, which is just six years old.
In Chinese society, the differences between people born in different decades are discussed and compared from time to time.
The differences are deemed significant in various aspects of social life, and even between adjacent generations, such as those who were born in the 1970s and those born in the 80s or 90s. In terms of jobs and careers, a recent report found that the first consideration of the post-1990 generation when hunting for a job is personal interest and preference.
Another recent report by Tencent Browser showed that more than half of young people born after 1995 consider being an online celebrity - performing on live-streaming websites, for example - as an ideal job. Length of employment: Song graduated from university in June and her job will start from September.
I felt quite lonely when I started hunting for jobs in the autumn of 2015, because the majority of my classmates chose to continue studying for master's degrees in or out of China.
It meant that I had no one to go to job fairs with, no one that I could share my pains or gains with while looking for job opportunities.
Like others, my first step in searching for a job was sending my resume to every possible enterprise that was recruiting, and I was interested in. I almost lost hope, when fortunately a well-known US company reached out to me at the end of last year.
I was fairly lucky compared with college graduates of recent years who experienced the so-called "most difficult period of hunting for a job", because I landed my current job in early 2009 after delivering only five copies of my resume.
Over the past several years, I have heard from time to time that some people sent out dozens of resumes in the hope of getting a single opportunity for a job interview. At the time, Japanese enterprises were having their moment in China and were in desperate need of people who could speak Japanese. I strongly believe that leading a pure and simple life on campus is a better choice than earning a lot but facing tiring sophistication every day. When I was thrown into the job market after graduating from college in 2001, landing a job was not as difficult as today.
That was the beginning of the 21st century, and there were not as many college graduates as there are now. I finally accepted my current employer, because my parents said jobs at State-owned enterprises were more stable.
In recent years, I have been thinking about trying other things such as running a coffee shop or a bookstore. Today's college graduates are facing an era that is totally different from what we were presented with 15 years ago. As part of this drive, an international education service and innovation park has been unveiled in the city's Hongkou district. The park is to be an educational hub with global influence, and will act as a growth engine and benchmark for the country's development.
A number of educational organizations will be introduced to the park in the near future, covering areas such as overseas study, education certification and development, and online education, Li said. Other platforms to be developed at the park include an international education big data center, international affairs think tank, international talent training base, international education quality evaluation and certification service platform, and a service platform for international students. According to the latest figures from the Ministry of Education, the number of people going abroad to study reached 523,700 last year. In addition to integrating its international education resources, Shanghai is also focusing on improving its educational services so as to attract more international students.
Last month a total of six comprehensive service centers for international students were announced in the city. These centers will provide a one-stop shop for international students, offering everything from consultations on educational policy, to information about schools and courses, language training, and assistance with visa applications.
They also help attract more international students and promote the implementation of the city's international education strategy, Yang added.
One convenience offered by the centers is their student visa facilities, which allow international students to apply for a visa extension without having to travel to the city's Pudong New Area. Officials said they are planning to establish more of these centers across the city for the convenience of international students.
Meanwhile, more languages have been made available on the official website for international students studying in Shanghai, including English, Spanish, French, Arabic and Russian. The 59-year-old formerly served as a president of Cornell University and was the founding dean of Peking University School of Transnational Law in Shenzhen, Guangdong province.
The Shanghai campus is located in Lujiazui area, known as China's Wall Street, a cluster of skyscrapers that tower over a bend in the Huangpu River. The school seems custom-built to churn out global citizens in an increasingly globalized world. Yu Lizhong, chancellor and chairman of the board, said NYU Shanghai is committed to attracting the most excellent foreign students.
A middle school teacher in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province, has proposed a controversial way to keep her students focused in class - fines for misbehavior. For example, if a student is caught using a mobile phone during class, he or she has to pay 100 yuan ($15). The teacher said she started the system in the second half of 2015 and got support from the students' parents. However, after the media reported the story, the middle school urged the teacher to return all the money because she has no legal right to fine her students.
I think the key issue is no one knows how much money she required the students to give her, except herself. Getting a full scholarship to study at NYU Shanghai strengthened Veronica Hernandez's determination to start her university life far from home. Having grown up in a small Florida town, Hernandez was eager to see the world when she graduated from high school three years ago. As a foreign student, Hernandez found it tough at first to face the culture shock, but she managed to get along.
For her first three years of studies overseas, she chose Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Florence, Italy, as she was keen to study more languages and cultures.
Talking about her career plans, she says she is eager to stay in China to work in the art or media industries, where she has experience as an intern.
Job opportunities grew during the second quarter in the central and western part of China and in third-tier cities, thanks to e-commerce and the sharing economy. Chinese job recruitment website Zhaopin and the China Institute for Employment Research jointly released their second quarter employment report recently. Yet the employment situation in the less-developed middle and western regions of China had improved, compared with the same period last year. Third-tier cities and other less-developed areas, despite having relatively low numbers, saw 27 percent growth in new job openings compared with same period last year. Zeng Xiangquan, director of the China Institute for Employment Research, said the overall employment situation in the second quarter had improved from the first quarter. Guo Sheng, CEO of Zhaopin, said the biggest problem underlying the job pressure in China is the mismatch between employers and job seekers. For example, in the internet industry about 11 job vacancies had only one applicant, while in the mining industry, about 100 job seekers competed for 24 jobs.
According to Didi Dache, the car-hailing platform, it has provided 3.89 million job opportunities in 17 provinces that are cutting industrial overcapacity and jobs. The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security said an estimated 1.8 million employees in the iron and coal industry will be laid off in the process of reducing excess industrial capacity in China. Zhang Feng, an expert on lubricating oil at a research institute in Beijing, dined twice at a hotpot restaurant in Chengdu, Sichuan province, during his nearly five-day stay in the city. Under the new regulation, restaurants will be barred from using oils or additives containing excessive pollutants. Hailing the new regulation as a good measure to ensure food safety, some netizens have wondered if restaurants will comply. The flood left eight people dead and one missing in Daxian village, which suffered the most in the disaster. Villagers said it was the reconstruction of natural gas pipelines and other construction work in the upper reaches of Qilihe River that narrowed the river, which made the river overflow and then flood villages.
Villagers said the local government didn't try to search for the missing or was not doing rescue work after the disaster.
A professional search-and-rescue team led by a deputy head of the city's public security bureau has been working in the disaster areas since the disaster happened.
Villagers said no government official had visited the villages and comforted villagers after the flood. A great amount of water rushed along the river and the strong current near the village caused the flood. The Xingtai government has sent 12 teams comprising 300 people to help flood-affected villagers. Scientists in Shanghai have come up with a way to obtain accurate test results from microscopic DNA samples, paving the way for breakthroughs in the detection of cancer and venereal disease. Their technique, called LcnPCR, developed during more than 10 years of research at the Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, a branch of the Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences at the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
It has been included in Methods in Molecular Biology, a textbook "for everybody in the molecular biology field around the world", said Wang Xuecai, deputy director of the institute.
The new procedure improves upon a previous method known as polymerase chain reaction, which is the current standard used in almost every hospital and life-science laboratory worldwide.
Groundbreaking for its time, PCR was the first technique that made it possible to get an accurate test result or diagnosis from a very small DNA sample.
Its inventor, US biochemist Kary Mullis, jointly won the Nobel Prize in chemistry for it in 1993. However, PCR has drawbacks - the technique is prone to error, and any mistakes that do appear are then copied across each iteration of the DNA sequence.
LcnPCR, on the other hand, assures a higher degree of accuracy and sensitivity, which will benefit everyone from forensic investigators to inspection and quarantine teams at airport customs, according to Hong Guofan, the lead researcher. Researchers used the new technique to detect HPV, a virus that can cause cervical cancer but is notoriously difficult to accurately diagnose, and found that LcnPCR improved the detection rate. The institute has now signed a licensing agreement worth 10 million yuan ($1.5 million) with Shenzhen-based biotech consulting firm Zhongrui International for the exclusive use of the technique. Authorities impose stringent regulations on workshops whose activities damage the ecosystem, report Zheng Jinran in Beijing and Qiu Quanlin in Shantou, Guangdong province. Guiyu, a township in Guangdong province, has developed a cleaner, healthier atmosphere since strict restrictions on the disposal of electronic waste - including televisions, air conditioners, washing machines, cellphones and computers - came into force in 2013. Known as the e-waste capital of the world since the 1990s, Guiyu has grown into a major hub for its disposal.
It seemed that on every street, people could be seen heating circuit boards over coal fires to recover lead, while others used acid to burn out copper or bits of gold. Before the restrictions were imposed three years ago, Guiyu's e-waste industry recovered about 20 metric tons of gold and 450,000 tons of copper every year, Lin said. Business was booming, but the family-run workshops, teeming with unskilled, poorly equipped laborers, not only damaged the environment but also affected the workers' health.
A tributary of the Beigang River, which runs through the town, had high levels of acidity, and its muddy bed had a copper content equivalent to that of copper ore, according to the local environmental protection authority.
In March, a comprehensive inspection by the Guangdong provincial environmental team indicated widespread reductions in the levels of pollutants in the air, water and soil. In 2010, a report published by the United Nations Development Program said the boom in Guiyu's e-waste dismantling industry and the pollution it triggered reflected the general situation in China, which, with 2.3 million tons a year, was seen as the world's second-largest producer of e-waste. In recent years, the volume of e-waste in China has risen as a result of the nation's growing economic strength, which has boosted demand for electronic appliances as residents replace or upgrade old equipment.

Meanwhile, Beijing Council International Auction, said it only organized 18 sales during last year's spring auction season, half of the number for 2014. Back in 2011, there were rumors of an imminent slowdown because market fluctuation is a cyclical thing that is bound to happen every two or three years.
Xu Qing, from the State-owned Henan Provincial Antique Store in Zhengzhou, Henan Pro-vince, believes that the market meltdown has pushed those people further to the fringes, where they are struggling for a foothold. It usually ran for four or five days, as traders from all over the country congregated in Zhengzhou and checked into the four major hotels near Xu's store. In late June and early July, the State-owned Suzhou Municipal Antique Store celebrated its 60th birthday with an antique fair attended by its counterparts from across the country. Now, five years have passed (since the start of the last market decline), and we are still hoping," Ji said. Between school and her store, the 29-year-old worked as an intern at a number of UK auction houses and dealers.

Higher education institutions should investigate and deal with reports of academic misconduct according to the law and regulations, in order to improve the academic environment in colleges and universities, the regulation said. The scientific and technological innovation project aims to promote innovation to support the country's upgrades and development. The document outlines six major tasks, including propelling forward reform of the intellectual property management system and mechanism, implementing strict protection of intellectual property, promoting the creation and application of intellectual property rights, improving international cooperation on intellectual property and strengthening policy support. The pilot will affect some prefecture-level cities, and focus on the construction of comprehensive old-age care facilities, which will be subsidized by the central government.
The reform deals with the application of intellectual property rights and their protection, and requires deepened implementation of the intellectual property strategy to help the country's development. The guidance stipulates that by 2025, China will establish a comprehensive dynamic monitoring system and effectively protect and manage the mining geological environment. The share of private fixed-asset investment in total national fixed-asset investment from January to June also dropped by 3.6 percentage points compared with a year ago.
Such investment is concentrated in infrastructure construction and key livelihood projects, where private capital is unwilling to invest due to the long investment cycle and low returns. In addition, inefficient government services in the investment and financing fields, as well as the high costs and the difficulties in obtaining financing also undermine private investment growth. Those areas include all cities, townships and districts under administration of Hangzhou, apart from the city of Jiande and the county of Chun'an.

I haven't visited the museum yet and I wish to see them when I am there," Li Jingzhuo said. However, the palace's drainage and flood-prevention ability today is the result of many factors," Shan said at a news conference on Monday. Painstaking design, measurement and execution were all part of the construction, according to Shan.
The ancient drainage system, which accounts for more than 90 percent of the total, is both huge and complex. For example, dredging the blind underground pipes of the royal garden at the northern section is an important task.
For example, the system can separate rainwater from sewage, a problem brought every day by the numerous tourists.
As the colleges get busy with recruitment, our reporters visited them to talk with principals, teachers and students.
Students who rank below par in the national college entrance examination can still have a chance with a good performance on the UIC admission test and a good high school transcript. The school has provided many courses to enhance team spirit and deepen students' understanding of traditional Chinese culture and arts. We should have ones that emphasize scientific research as well as those focusing on liberal arts education and those providing vocational training," he said.
It enrolls about 1,500 students on average every year and will slightly expand enrollment this year and next year to raise the number of undergraduates to 6,000. In addition, it has cracked down on the illegal capture of birds, according to Xu Zhifei, vice-mayor of Sansha. He formed a cabinet of 10 members, all of whom were also freshmen, to compete against a cabinet formed by students from across a spectrum of freshman to junior year. He set up a student society with his teammates and grew it to 50 members in his sophomore year.
Other exciting job opportunities for them include working as voice actors, cosmeticians, cosplayers or online game evaluators.
Landing a job seems to be more difficult, as many companies have reduced their hiring quotas due to the economic situation, which is not bright. Other times, although I succeeded in interviews and received job offers, I found that they offered such a low salary that I couldn't persuade myself to accept them.
As rookies in the workplace, fresh graduates often have fantastic ideas, or even delusions, about their future career paths. I've heard that some people struggle to decide when facing a choice among several job opportunities.
Most of my classmates landed good jobs in big cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Today, the holder of a bachelor's degree from a non-Beijing university may fall into a group that has very little hope of finding a decent job in the capital. But I haven't really set out to do that because any decision I make might create challenges for my family. Obviously, there are many difficulties, but opportunities exist and young people should still have hope of leading a successful life.
It fosters a capacity for dealing with multicultural situations, meaning that those who make the cut get to celebrate China's Lantern Festival, Pi Day and Christmas Day, rather than just Christmas. Our objective is to bring the students together so that they can understand the cultural differences and similarities, and they can learn how to be effective in a group," Lehman said. Teachers can find their hands are tied when their students are totally spoiled by their families and tend to get everything they want.
I also spent time traveling Eastern Europe, which is a part of the world I've never been to before and where there aren't many tourists," Hernandez said. I didn't really have any major expectations for my experience, but I have enjoyed every minute being here," Hernandez said. The report showed that first-tier cities, as well as the country's eastern region generally, continued to generate the majority of new job opportunities. The provincial Health and Family Planning Commission formulated a compulsory regulation earlier this month to ban substandard materials in the hotpot soup base. But it was only a recommendation to restaurants and did not impose penalties for noncompliance. For aroma enhancement they might use spices grown in fields with excess chemical fertilizers or heavy metals," said Li, who worked in the catering industry for 22 years.
Was the flood caused by the discharge from reservoirs in the upper reaches of the Qilihe River? Officials from the local town knocked at villagers' doors in person to inform them of the flood. Guiyu has been nicknamed 'the e-waste capital' by the locals, and almost every family works in the recycling sector.
In its heyday, more than 100,000 people, about 50 percent of the permanent residents, made a living dismantling electronic equipment to harvest the expensive metals inside, according to Lin Qiurong, head of the township government. It now hosts about 1,400, and they have consolidated to form 29 joint-venture companies located in the recently opened industrial zone.
We have established a system to cover the whole recycling process - from keeping records of all the waste that enters the town, to dismantling and on to the final re-sales," Zheng said. I relocated to Philadelphia, Washington and then Boston to attend Harvard Business School before happily moving back home just as my wife and I were starting a family. Recently I accepted the role of president of the Monroe County Republican Women (a non party-funded organization).
