Baby growth during 7th month pregnancy,things about pregnancy you didnt know jesus,pregnant after 42 years old - Plans On 2016
The Defense Ministry on Thursday refuted Japan's protest over Chinese warships sailing close to the Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea. The statement came after Japan said on Thursday a Chinese frigate sailed within 38 kms of the Diaoyu Islands shortly after midnight. The Chinese frigate stayed in the waters around the islands for about an hour before sailing toward the Chinese coast. It was confirmed by the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force's destroyer Setogiri, which was keeping watch on the frigate, Japan's newspaper Asahi Shimbun said. Japan's Vice-Foreign Minister Akitaka Saiki summoned Cheng Yonghua, the Chinese ambassador in Tokyo, at around 2 am to "express serious concern", the Japanese government said in a statement. Three Russian naval vessels were also spotted sailing close to the islands at around the same time as the Chinese warship. While Chinese coast guard vessels routinely patrol the area, it was the first time a Chinese warship was spotted, Japanese officials said, according to The Associated Press. Sino-Japanese relations plunged after Tokyo's illegal "nationalization" of China's Diaoyu Islands in September 2012. Lyu Yaodong, an expert on Japanese studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said it is quite normal for China to assert sovereignty over its own territories, whether by sending a coast guard vessel or a naval ship. Da Zhigang, director of the institute of northeast Asian studies at Heilongjiang Academy of Social Sciences, said Tokyo making a fuss of the case demonstrated its sense of crisis over its illegal control of China's Diaoyu Islands.
Qu Hongbin, chief China economist at HSBC Holdings, said the lower-than-expected inflation in May is partly a result of the slowdown in rising food prices.
Qu said that the subdued inflation will create room for continued stimulatory policies, which is the key for China maintaining stable economic growth as external demand remains weak and the property market is full of uncertainty. The narrowed producer deflation also reflected a short-term spike in commodity prices and the increased investment in infrastructure projects, he added. The decline in mining and raw material producer prices decelerated in May from the previous month, according to official data. Economists said earlier that elevated consumer inflation and narrowed producer deflation will undermine the Chinese monetary authority's case for more interest rate cuts to stimulate the economy. Some are concerned that policymakers will even tighten monetary policy if inflation surges faster than expected and the US Federal Reserve hikes interest rates in the second half of the year. Zhang Deli, analyst at Minsheng Securities Co, said that China's consumer inflation may have peaked and there is no basis for stagflation (where inflation is high while growth remains slow) in the long run. A chicken claw and a toy sheriff's star are just some of the weird items that have been removed from the throats, nostrils and ears of children by doctors at Boston Children's Hospital and are included in a macabre, yet important, display.
A visitor's first reaction might be to laugh at the framed collection of dozens of items that date to 1918 and hangs at the entrance to the hospital's ear, nose and throat department, but it's also a reminder to the parents who walk past it every day to remain vigilant. Disc-like button batteries are among the more commonly swallowed items these days, and particularly dangerous because the chemicals in them can burn esophageal tissue in a couple of hours, Hseu said. Latex balloons, magnets and colorful laundry detergent pods are also frequently swallowed, said Sarah Denny, an emergency department pediatrician at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. She has extracted a cellphone button from a teenager's ear and a gum wrapper that was stuck in a child's nostril for a couple of weeks.
The Boston collection is a tribute to late Children's Hospital physician Charles Ferguson, who worked there for 35 years and removed most of the items himself. Thousands of children a year are treated for sticking stuff they're not supposed to in their mouths, noses and ears, Denny said. He Huizhong has just finished shopping for fresh vegetables at a farmer's market in a narrow alleyway in central Beijing that's too small for a car to pass through. On the short walk home, the 68-year-old looks up, as he always does, to the 51-meter-tall Tibetan Buddhist pagoda that gleams white in the sunshine. He has been living in a hutong, or alleyway home, in the Baitasi (white pagoda temple) area of Beijing's Xicheng district for more than 50 years. As Beijing grows ever larger and is packed more and more tightly with towering modern skyscrapers, the number of hutong neighborhoods such as his, which first appeared in the city more than 700 years ago during the Yuan Dynasty (1368-1644), has been falling. Wang Fei, vice-director of the Beijing Municipal Commission of Urban Planning, said recently that the city will protect the "more than 1,000 existing hutong" that remain and that their names will also be preserved. Wang did not give a specific number for how many hutong are left within the boundaries of the old city wall and no one from the commission could be reached for comment when contacted by China Daily. Experts said improved legislation and greater public awareness of the importance of the disappearing hutong areas have slowed the rate at which they and the city's siheyuan (traditional quadrangle courtyards) are being cleared. Many people now see the traditional architecture of these neighborhoods as the essence of Beijing as an ancient imperial city with a long history. While no updated official data is available for the situation right now, non-governmental organizations are conducting their own research. The Beijing Cultural Heritage Protection Center, one such non-governmental organization, is conducting surveys of all the remaining hutong within the Old City area. Liu, who is a teacher of Chinese at a senior high school, asked her students to visit the former homes and neighborhoods of historical figures during their winter vacations. To name a few of the historic homes lost: the former residence of Cao Xueqin, author of Dream of Red Mansions, was demolished in 1999 to allow for the widening of a street.
While up-to-date numbers are sketchy, what we do know is the number of hutong in the Old City area almost halved between 1990 and 2005, when the total fell from 2,242 to 1,353, according to official data. Much of the drive to redevelop hutong areas in the past has been inspired by a desire to improve the physical living conditions of the residents, because it is common in hutong areas for people to live in homes with inefficient and polluting heating systems, poor sanitation and water supply and shared public toilets. In spite of the arguments both for and against the demolition and redevelopment of hutong areas, there is no denying the demolitions of the hutong and the resulting land sales, have been lucrative and a major source of revenue for local governments in Beijing.
In early 2005, the "Overall Urban Planning of Beijing 2005-2020" was approved by the State Council, China's cabinet.
However, only 46 percent of the 1,353 hutong in existence in 2005 were within the city's conservation districts pertaining to historic sites validated within the "2005-2020" plan and others remained outside and vulnerable to demolition. According to Feng Feifei, head of the urban design department at the Beijing Municipal Institute of City Planning and Design, the hutong are not entirely safe, even if they are within the conservation area because it has been divided into a "highly protected zone" and a "controlled construction zone". She and her colleagues proposed getting rid of the "controlled construction zone" in a detailed planning follow-up to the 2005-2020 plan, but the idea was not sanctioned by the municipal government, she said. She was referring to one of Asia's largest developments of shopping malls, office buildings and hotels, which is located only 1 kilometer east of the Forbidden City, the Chinese imperial palace for five centuries. In the short term, the protection and preservation of hutong is certainly not profitable as opposed to the sale of the land they stand on, especially when protecting and renovating hutong areas requires significant investment, she explained. However, the hutong do have intrinsic value and calculations about their worth change in the long run.
Near to He Huizhong's house stands the famous courtyard where Lu Xun, a leading figure in modern Chinese literature, used to live and where Lu completed many well-known works. One street away lies the financial district known as Beijing's Wall Street where people in suits meet in five-star hotels and where China's top banks have their headquarters. He and his wife live in an 18-square-meter home built by his father within the front yard of a courtyard once owned by a prestigious family. It is easy to tell how many families share such courtyards; all you need to do is count how many electricity meters hang next to the shared entranceway. On one hand, as cultural icons of Beijing, a few hutong have become so popular with tourists that local residents find all the attention too much and preservationists worry about the potential risk to historic buildings from the massive crowds. In response to the challenges facing one popular hutong area, the local government in Dongcheng district issued a ban in April on large tour groups visiting Nanluoguxiang, a 740-year-old hutong that is lined with shops, restaurants and bars.
Hu, a Beijing native, said the renovation of hutong areas still present far bigger challenges for governments at all levels than their demolition.
However, Hua Xinmin is not so concerned about how best to renovate the aging, poorly equipped homes. Hua refers back to the early 1950s, when many residents moved to the city for work following the nationalization of private enterprises.
To solve the housing problem, according to the standard in Beijing at the time, families with more than 15 rooms or 225 square meters of space in total, were asked to give the leasing rights of additional rooms to local governments so they could be rented out. Then, during the "cultural revolution" (1966-76), many of the house owners were forced to hand their property deeds to the Red Guards - students and young people mobilized to implement the goals of the "cultural revolution" - or reluctantly accepted other incentives in return for the ownership documents.
While houses have been returned to the original owners in many cities that had similar issues, many property owners in the capital are still struggling to get their houses back and remain tenants instead of owners.
When the CHP was founded in 2003, they decided the slogan they wanted to use was "Help the community residents protect their own cultural heritage", which He Shuzhong still takes great pride in today. He said he is pleased to witness the growing awareness of the hutong issue among the public, which will be the fundamental driving force of change in the long run. Feng from the Beijing Municipal Institute of City Planning and Design, which is part of the Beijing Municipal Commission of Urban Planning, said society as a whole is playing a much larger role in the protection of historic neighborhoods.
Today, the Baitasi area which surrounds the white pagoda is part of the most protected conservation zone, and hutong there must not be demolished. Many people have decided to move into the suburban apartments on offer after receiving compensation from the government. Homes that stand empty awaiting renovation and, in many cases new tenants, are wrapped in red plastic paper with the silhouettes of the white pagoda and skyscrapers printed on them and the words "Capture the opportunities and fulfill the dream of settling down". He said he is now seeing more and more of these "wrapping paper" houses in the neighborhood, but he has no intention of being among those who are leaving.
Justin Trudeau said China was to be congratulated for contributing hundreds of millions of people to the global middle class. The prime minister made the comments during an interview by Brooke Unger, Americas editor for The Economist. China is Canada's second-largest trading partner, behind only the US, as two-way merchandise shipments totaled C$78 billion two years ago. About 1.5 million of Canada's 35 million people are of Chinese descent, with Mandarin the third most-spoken language after English and French. The Liberal government succeeded the Conservative government of Stephen Harper and has sought to improve relations with Beijing. China remembers Pierre Trudeau's outreach, according to President Xi Jinping, whom the new PM met at the G20 in Turkey last November. The 3 billion renminbi ($458 million) three year bond is the first offshore renminbi bond issued by the Ministry of Finance outside of China. It is expected to act as a benchmark to aid the future pricing of renminbi assets and so encourage the issuing of more offshore renminbi investment products.
Shi Yaobin, vice-minister of finance, said the Chinese and the UK governments have made joint efforts during the process of issuance. The Bank of England's acceptance of the bond as an eligible collateral instrument increases its attractiveness to investors, as holders of this bond can swap it with the BoE for sterling for short-term liquidity purposes. Harriett Baldwin, the UK's economic secretary to the treasury, said the bond's issuance is "a golden moment" in the relationship between the United Kingdom and China, and the UK government is committed to further helping improve the renminbi's internationalization. Gao Yingxin, executive vice-president of Bank of China, said orders for the bond have been received from a wide range of investors. Andrew Carmichael, Capital Markets partner at the London based law firm Linklaters, said the fact the issue is listed on the London Stock Exchange shows China's commitment to full participation in the international financial system. Carmichael added this deal will also help to confirm London's place as the global center of renminbi trading outside of Asia.

Already, STEM - an acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics - is part of an inter-disciplinary approach that marks school education in developed countries. Sui Shaolong, chief operating officer of RoboTerra Inc, an educational robotics company located in Silicon Valley in the US, said: "Compared with the traditional education model, school education that includes robotics in the curriculum could let students learn how to analyze and solve problems. Designing and writing the robot's programs will develop students' logical thinking ability, and team work will enhance their interpersonal communication and ability to cooperate, Sui said.
RoboTerra has already provided one-stop solutions about robot curriculum and STEM-centric education to dozens of schools in Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an and Shenzhen. Founded in 2014, RoboTerra develops robotics kits that inspire students' creativity, imagination and ability to innovate. Students could learn mechanical and electrical engineering skills through its Origin Kit, a collection of robotics equipment, including a robot controller, a variety of sensors and actuators and aluminum metal parts. Students could also learn programming skills through its CastleRock online learning platform, where they could communicate, share ideas and challenge each other. Bai Chen, RoboTerra's chief technology officer, said traditional education in China tends to penalize students for making mistakes whereas robot education will encourage students to make mistakes and learn from them. Zhang Xiaofeng, director of the senior high school at Xiwai International School under Shanghai International Studies University, said: "The robot education could complement STEM.
For instance, Liaoning province has included robot education in its schools in Shenyang, its capital. China told the Philippines on Wednesday, the door is always open to bilateral negotiation on their maritime disputes in the South China Sea. In an official statement, the Foreign Ministry urged Manila to stop turning its back on its agreement to settle the disputes through negotiation and end the arbitral proceedings it had initiated against China.
It said that the two peoples had enjoyed a long friendship and the overall situation in the South China Sea had remained stable despite the disputes, and reminded Manila of its commitments to settle the disputes in a peaceful and friendly manner. From the very start of the arbitral process, China has held to its right to refuse to accept or participate in the arbitration. The Foreign Ministry statement urged Manila to "return to the right path" of settling their disputes through bilateral negotiation. It was only after the Benigno Aquino administration initiated unilateral arbitration proceedings against China in 2013 that relations between the two countries deteriorated.
On Tuesday, the All China Lawyers Association said in a statement that the Arbitral Tribunal "has wantonly expanded and exceeded its power", and China's refusal to be involved in the case is "a justifiable act".
Observers have called on Philippine President-elect Rodrigo Duterte to quit the arbitration and return to the table for talks with Beijing.
Jia Duqiang, a researcher in Southeast Asian studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said the incoming Duterte administration seems willing to "reevaluate the country's policies towards China". Wu Shicun, president of the National Institute for South China Sea Studies, said it remained to be seen if the new Philippine government would respond to Beijing's overtures.
The arbitration process is coming to a critical moment with the arbitral tribunal expected to announce its ruling in a few weeks. In another development, Hong Lei, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, urged the Unites States to stop reconnaissance flights near China's coast after US defense officials said earlier in the day that a Chinese fighter jet carried out an "unsafe" intercept of a US spy plane above the East China Sea.
Washington is once again deliberately playing up the encounter, Hong said, adding Chinese pilots always operate responsibly and professionally. The premier made the remarks on Tuesday when meeting the 15 presidents and chief executive officers of multinational corporations attending the Fourth Global CEO Council Round Table Summit, hosted by the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries.
Li said China is restructuring and upgrading its economy and the service sector and consumption contribute more than half of the nation's economic growth. He said enormous market potential exists in sectors such as telecommunications, healthcare and sports to provide new opportunities for multinational corporations. The 15 business leaders are the heads of Fortune 500 companies such as the German automobile maker Daimler AG, the US sports company Nike, and Finland's telecommunication giant Nokia.
The theme for the summit was the opportunities and challenges for multinational corporations during China's 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20). The consensus of the business leaders was they are facing more opportunities than challenges in China, which is still very appealing to foreign investment. Chen Fengying, a researcher on the global economy at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said multinational companies have contributed a lot to China's economic growth and technological upgrading. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang (center in the first row) takes a group photo with representatives of 4th Round Table Summit of the Global CEO Council at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, on Tuesday. The Supreme People's Court designated Shandong High People's Court to conduct the review of the case, and it concluded there was not enough evidence to prove Nie Shubin was guilty of the crimes.
In its report, Shandong People's High Court raised serious questions about the times involved, the tools used and the cause of death, the Supreme People's Court said in a statement released on Wednesday.
Nie, a mechanical worker in Shijiazhuang, capital of North China's Hebei province, was executed in 1995 after being convicted of raping and murdering a 38-year-old woman in the city in 1994. However, in 2005, a man named Wang Shujin was arrested for another rape and murder, and while in detention, the then-38-year-old confessed that he had committed the crimes that cost Nie his life. According to a statement by Shandong People's High Court, the review took a year and a half and the deadline was postponed four times, due to the complexity of the case and the fact that the trial took place many years ago. However, the review found no evidence that Nie had been tortured to give a confession, the court said. Zhou Guangquan, a law professor at Tsinghua University, said that the decision to retry the case shows the respect to the law, the facts and the proper implementation of procedures. Ruan Chuansheng, a criminal lawyer who has been following the case from Shanghai, said strictly implementing judicial process and respecting evidence is the key to preventing judicial flaws and mistakes.
Wang Wanqiong, a criminal lawyer in Sichuan province, said that the retrial will be a milestone in Chinese judicial construction. Details of the retrial will be made public, according to the statement by the Supreme People's Court. Jan 17, 2005 Wang Shujin is arrested by police and confesses to raping and killing the woman. Dec 12, 2014 The Supreme People's Court designates Shandong People's High Court to review the case. Linking up the "electronic bricks", which include a power source, a switch, a resistor and other components with a conducting wire, children could learn the basic principle and knowledge about circuits during the process of assembly.
Thanks to the application of image-recognition technology, children could also clearly see the motion trails of electrons in the connected circuit by just scanning their completed works using an app. Founded in 2014, Putao is engaged in the development of hi-tech toys and apps for children aged between 3 and 12. Chinese toy manufacturers are speeding up efforts to apply the most-advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, image recognition and big data, to the intelligent toy market. China's second-child policy, which was officially implemented from Jan 1, is expected to further stimulate the growth of the toy market. By downloading the relevant app, parents could also collect the data about the time and frequency of their children's use of the toys. In January, Alpha Animation and Culture launched a robot that could listen, watch, think and accompany the children. In March, Tencent released its first self-developed children's intelligent entertainment product, which combines a virtual game with physical toys.
The intelligent toy market is growing rapidly, and the most advanced technologies are seen reinvigorating the traditional toy market. It is estimated that the compound growth rate of global intelligent toy market will reach 35 percent for the 2014-18 period. Makeblock, the main brand of Shenzhen Maker Works Technology Co Ltd, is another good example of success in the toy market.
Founded in 2012, the company provides one-stop robotics construction solutions so that users could build any robots they can imagine by using various mechanical parts and electronic modules.
Wang Jianjun, CEO and founder of MakeBlock, said: "Makeblock is an open platform, compatible with many other parts and systems, and we help people turn their ideas into reality. Industry sources estimated that the size of the domestic market for intelligent toys will reach 100 billion yuan by 2020. Li expects more intelligent products in the areas of nursery and primary education as technologies get advanced.
The scope for progress comes from the fact that domestic standards still lag those in Europe and the United States.

The case was made in a Wednesday official statement by the Foreign Ministry in response to an arbitration unilaterally sought by Manila against China in 2013. The arbitral case is pending, while some media and observers said the expected ruling by the arbitral tribunal will be made in a few weeks.
The written statement on Wednesday, an elaboration in the wake of China's recent responses to the issue, has referred to a slew of two-way agreements signed in the past decades to show that Manila has betrayed the bilateral consensus on resolving disputes through talks. The agreement included "The Joint Statement between the People's Republic of China and the Republic of the Philippines concerning Consultations on the South China Sea and on Other Areas of Cooperation" in 1995. The 1995 document said "a gradual and progressive process of cooperation shall be adopted with a view to eventually negotiating a settlement of the bilateral disputes". Manila's unilaterally seeking the arbitration "is a violation of the principle of Pacta sunt servanda and an abuse of the UNCLOS (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea) dispute settlement procedures. In recent weeks, Washington has publicly pressed Beijing on accepting the ruling, including the call made by US Defense Secretary Ash Carter recently at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore. Wu Shicun, president of the National Institute for South China Sea Studies, said that although it remains to be seen if the incumbent Philippine administration will quit the arbitration and return to the table for talks, "it is apparent that the arbitration - from it very beginning - has led to an increasing, not decreasing, number of problems between Beijing and Manila".
In its annual report on global wealth, Boston Consulting Group (BCG) said on Tuesday that Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan), was the only region to post double-digit growth, as the value of private wealth advanced 13 percent to $37 trillion last year.
When it comes to wealth creation, "China is still the most important market in Asia today," said Mariam Jaafar, a partner in BCG's wealth management practice in Singapore.
Wealthy Chinese are fairly conservative when it comes to investments and are expected to remain that way in the future, BCG said.
By 2020, BCG expects HNW Chinese to keep 77 percent of their assets in cash and deposits, 19 percent in stock and 5 percent in bonds. China's stock market turbulence last year helped to increase investor awareness about risk and alternative financial assets, Jaafar said.
The number of millionaire households in the world rose 6 percent in 2015 to 18.5 million, according to the report, a slowdown from 11 percent growth in 2014.
Millionaires now control about 47 percent of the world's wealth and will control 52 percent by 2020, BCG said.
China and the United States reached dozens of agreements in such fields as policy coordination, bilateral investment and financial cooperation during the economic track of the high-level dialogue in Beijing, said Vice-Premier Wang Yang on Tuesday. The two sides agreed to maintain stable and sustainable economic growth through structural reforms, he said. Wang said China agreed to strengthen its supply-side structural reform while moderately expanding aggregate demand, or total demand for final goods and services at all price levels.
The US agreed to make efforts to raise its savings rate, increase investment, especially for infrastructure, and improve productivity to achieve midterm fiscal sustainability, he added. The US also agreed to fully consider the impact of its interest rate changes on international financial markets and to improve policy transparency and predictability. Wang said the two sides are aware that the excess production capacity of steel and other sectors is a result of the slow global economic recovery and weak global demand, and should therefore be tackled collectively by countries through legal and market-based measures.
The two sides agreed to accelerate bilateral investment treaty negotiations and exchange by the middle of this month the "negative list" of sectors that are off-limits to the other country's investors, Wang said.
The two countries agreed to discuss export regulation through a special working group and work on certifying aircraft airworthiness to promote reciprocal acceptance of civil aircraft.
Bilateral trade and investment between Chinese and US cities will be promoted, and cooperation in infrastructure construction, intellectual property rights protection, agriculture and clean energy will be strengthened, Wang said.
They also reached consensus that more of the International Monetary Fund voting quota should be given to emerging-market and developing countries, and the IMF should study the possibility of expanding the use of special drawing rights, Wang said. US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said China has committed to continuing "market-oriented exchange rate reform that allows for two-way flexibility" of the yuan. Yi Gang, deputy governor of the People's Bank of China, the central bank, said China's yuan exchange rate formation procedure is becoming more stable and transparent, and the internationalization of the currency will be market-oriented. Vice-Premier Wang Yang (second from right), State Councilor Yang Jiechi (right), US Secretary of State John Kerry (left) and US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew attend an entrepreneur breakfast meeting at the eighth China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue in Beijing on Tuesday.
The people-to-people consultation, co-chaired by Liu and US Secretary of State John Kerry, has expanded to seven fields, including education, science and health, from four in 2010 when it was initiated in Beijing. According to Liu, during the past six years, the number of Chinese students in the US has doubled, reaching 600,000. Hao Ping, Chinese vice-minister of education, said 12 cooperation agreements were signed during this year's session, and events included a forum among think tanks from China and the US and a soccer game between female college students from the two countries. Kerry praised the progress the two countries have made in education, health and cultural exchanges in the past six years. Before the plenary session, Liu and Kerry visited young innovators from both countries who displayed their products in the National Museum. The innovators were participants in the 2015 China-US Young Makers Competition, one of the most important events of the exchange.
Three groups from the US also showed their products, including a headlight to ensure cycling safety and a device that alerts drivers when fatigue occurs. About 2,000 young innovators from China and the US entered the competition, submitting nearly 500 projects. Vice-Premier Liu Yandong and US Secretary of State John Kerry greet members of the Beijing Normal University women's soccer team at the National Museum in Beijing on Tuesday during the China-US High-Level Consultation on People-to-People Exchange. China, the US and other international parties worked well together, with excellent results, on Ebola prevention and control in West Africa in the past two years, paving the way for future cooperation, Liang said. The Ebola epidemic began in early 2014 and ended late last year, striking mostly West Africa, but cases were found as far as the US and Europe.
China will send public health experts to the center to work and help ensure its normal operation. The timetable for building an African CDC has not yet been established, Liang said, and many obstacles still must be worked out. China and the US are also cooperating on some other African projects, for example on Ebola prevention and control in Sierra Leone, he said.
Other African projects involving Chinese and US cooperation are being discussed, such as one promoting hepatitis B vaccination of newborns in Sierra Leone, he said. China has rich experience in infectious disease control and prevention, and Africa, as a continent with a large number of developing countries, resembles China much more than the US, and China's experiences and assistance may be more useful to Africa in fighting infectious diseases, Liang said.
The two-day climate summit drew mayors and other urban leaders from more than 60 cities in the United States and China. Speaking on the sidelines of the conference, State Councilor Yang Jiechi said the agreements show that the two countries are working together on tackling climate change and are setting an example for other countries. US Secretary of State John Kerry said that "it's of great urgency" to take actions to make cities more resilient to climate change and to accelerate the transition to low carbon cities. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said that close cooperation at the municipal level can facilitate the implementation of the ambitious goals set by the Paris Agreement on climate change in December.
Disputes should be resolved by the parties directly involved through consultation, he said at the end of the eighth China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue in Beijing.
US Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated US support for negotiations and peaceful resolution.
Yang said both sides agreed to maintain communication and control differences in "a constructive way". They also vowed to "nurture a joint, not mutually exclusive, circle of friends" in the Asia-Pacific, he added. Zhou Qi, executive president of the National Strategy Institute of Tsinghua University, said, "Despite differences, both China and the US are willing to see the issue in the comprehensive view of China-US relations.
Vice-Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang told reporters after the dialogue that the two sides reached 120 agreements in nine areas during the strategic track of the dialogue.
According to Zheng, the two countries' militaries will carry out more policy dialogue and joint training. Anti-corruption cooperation will be strengthened, especially in refusal of entry to corrupt officials, repatriation of criminals and recovery of illicit assets.
China and the US will also join hands to combat global terrorism threats by beefing up information sharing and fighting the cross-border flow of foreign terrorist fighters, as well as through counter terrorism funding.
In a strategic security dialogue held on the sidelines, the two sides discussed security issues including the cross-Straits situation and maritime, cyberspace and outer space security, Zheng said. The two countries have had in-depth discussions about our interactions in the Asia-Pacific region. President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday that he expects to exchange views on key issues with his United States counterpart Barack Obama during the G20 summit in China in September. Xi also called on the US to strengthen macroeconomic policy coordination with China to inject confidence and new impetus into the world economy during the summit in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.
He made the appeal at a meeting with the US delegation to the annual China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue in Beijing, which ended on Tuesday. At the two-day event - the highest-level formal dialogue between the world's top two economies - more than 100 agreements and deals were signed in strategic areas and more than 60 in economic sectors.
Xi urged the two governments to ensure these achievements produce quick results to benefit the two peoples.
He said there are many things that China and the US can work together on, and both nations should do more for the good of Sino-US cooperation.
The president added that the two countries could enhance cooperation in areas including trade, clean energy and environmental protection. Premier Li Keqiang, who also meet with US representatives, said China is willing to promote a continuous, healthy and stable bilateral relationship with the US by strengthening strategic mutual trust, expanding channels for cooperation, promoting people-to-people exchanges and managing differences constructively. US Secretary of State John Kerry said this round of the dialogue is the last one for the Obama administration, and it has special significance. Zhiqun Zhu, associate professor of political science and international relations and John D.
No matter who the next US president is, such crucial dialogue mechanisms must be maintained to ensure stability and continuity of the relationship, he said.
Both countries will boost communication, focus on cooperation, and treat divergences properly.
They agreed to achieve new development of ties between the two militaries, boost policy dialogue, increase interaction, bolster trust, and embark on more drills and training. They will enforce cooperation on anti-terrorism, cyberspace, judiciary and law enforcement, return of fugitives and illegal assets, energy, the environment, customs, hygiene, aviation and maritime protection.
China agreed to grant the US 250 billion yuan ($38 billion) under the Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor program and assign one qualified bank in each nation as a RMB clearance bank. She has been working at Dongcheng District People's Court since the start of June helping judges to deal with domestic cases including divorce, child custody and property inheritance. Her new role is part of plans to reform hearings into such cases that were put forward by China's top court in May.
The court where Zheng works is one of 118 nationwide taking part in a two-year pilot program to offer free mediation services, partly to reduce the burden on the legal system. In addition to offering mediators, participating courts will provide social workers and psychologists, enabling potential litigants to solve conflicts without necessarily resorting to the courtroom. The number of mediators working at Dongcheng District People's Court and the 117 others taking part in the pilot program is not known, and the numbers are likely to change as the program takes shape. According to the Ministry of Civil Affairs, the national divorce rate has risen rapidly since 2002, with 3.64 million couples ending their marriages in 2014.
Zheng, 46, said her role is to mediate between couples embroiled in domestic conflicts before their cases come before the courts. Zhao Qing, chief judge at the Dongcheng court's family dispute tribunal, said a 66-item plan was put into operation after the Supreme People's Court called for the reforms. Residents with mediation experience, such as seniors working on community committees, and people with knowledge of the law and psychology are being selected as mediators, Zhao said.
Under the plan, family disputes will initially be handled by mediators within three days of being registered with a court. Potential litigants will be allowed to choose the mediators they want to work with - in line with their needs.
While the pilot program is just starting in many areas, courts in Fujian province have relied on mediation for some time in connection with family disputes.
For example, Sanming Intermediate People's Court has used mediation in many cases involving young people and domestic disputes since last year. Guo said the move toward increased mediation in such disputes and less time spent in courts stems from the experience in countries such as the United States.

According to the latest figures from the Xicheng branch of the Beijing Municipal Commission of Urban Planning, the district had 858 hutong in 2003 and is currently thought to have around 609. And a range of issues plague the remaining hutong areas, including disputed property rights, unpleasant living conditions and the unreasonable commercialization of some of these existing homes and alleyways. And, in 2012, the former home of Liang Sicheng, who is recognized as the "father of modern Chinese architecture", and his wife Lin Huiyin, who was also a renowned architect and writer, was razed despite the efforts of many organizations, including the CHP, to save it. The loss during those 15 years was heavier than the total destroyed during the 40 years from 1949 to 1989. Despite the drawbacks, many people who live in hutong areas enjoy living in a central location and dislike the fact that redevelopment projects often lead to hutong residents from central Beijing being relocated to new high-rises in the suburban areas beyond the Fifth Ring Road. For the first time, an official paper set the "integral protection of the Old City of Beijing" as a principle, with the goal of "protecting the hutong-siheyuan traditional architecture style". Old buildings in the second zone are therefore potential candidates for destruction and distortion, Feng said. According to his book, Lu who died in 1936, also enjoyed looking up at the pagoda that today so captivates He. While He likes his neighborhood farmers' market, people can also choose to buy their vegetables from supermarkets packed with imported goods.

It is a vast and constantly transforming area where people live and work," said He Shuzhong, the founder of the CHP.
But on the other hand, most hutong residents live in less popular and well known neighborhoods and have their own challenges to deal with that include cramped living conditions and shared bathrooms. Without the respect of property rights, the protection of the Old City is groundless," Hua said. Residents such as He can choose whether they want to carry on living in the renovated homes or opt for resettlement. They also like the idea of no longer needing to use public toilets and being able to park their cars more easily. The hutong is home to many migrant workers from outside the capital and, like many such neighborhoods, has infrastructure challenges.

Other companies are also aiming at the children's market to develop drones, virtual-reality glasses and augmented-reality toys.
It is a robotics construction platform that consists of more than 400 types of metal building blocks, electronic modules and software tools. In his view, the intelligent toys could harness children's programming capability and logical thinking ability, let the children enjoy the pleasure of creation and make education interesting.
The current technologies are still in their infancy and no enterprise owns a dominant position, industry insiders said.
AR technology could be easily applied to toys, but VR technology, which often needs a heavy helmet, is still not mature.
From the start of the arbitral process, China has stated that it won't accept it or participate in it. In 2015, the wealthy Chinese kept 79 percent of their assets in cash and deposits, 16 percent in equities, and 5 percent in bonds.

The survey counted hutong - which are collections of closely packed ground-level homes organized in distinctive patterns around narrow alleyways - within the Old City of Beijing, which is a 62.5 square kilometer area encircled by the city's Second Ring Road. According to Zhang Pei, the project manager, some of the hutong that were recorded and surveyed in 2005 have since been demolished. Hua, the daughter of Leon Hoa, who was chief architect at the Beijing Institute of Architectural Design during the 1950s, became a dedicated protector of the capital's hutong, submitting suggestions to the government, writing books and essays and giving lectures about hutong.
