After decades of rapid GDP growth, China’s economy has en

entered a new era of moderately slowing expansion and a transition to a high-quality grow

h model. That has pushed economists to reconsider some long-term issues, such as whether the economy wo

uld cool down sharply before a considerable rise in wealth, especially after a period of fast growth.

“The key method to ensure China’s role as a high-income cou

ntry is to adjust industrial structures and promote productivity,” said Zhu Min, an inf

luential Chinese economist and former deputy managing director at the International Monetary Fund.

High-tech manufacturing, the service industry and the digital economy will be the new engines

for the economy, while some traditional driving forces, such as injecting funds into the market, are losing momentum, Zhu said.

China’s total GDP exceeded 90 trillion yuan ($13.4 trillion) in 2018, and the per cap

ita GDP was about $9,700. Economists predict that if the country maintains growth of at least 6 percent th

is year, which is likely given the current momentum, its per capita GDP this year would surpass $10,000.

  Earlier on Saturday, Ardern said the country’s gun law would be changed.

  She spoke to the public at 4:00 pm local time. She said: “This is one of New Zealand’s darkest days. My thoughts are with Christchurch.”

  ”It is an unprecedented violence in New Zealand. There is no place for such extreme violence in New Zealand.”

  ”Our gun law will be changed,” said Ardern, noting that the killers had a legitimate gun license.

  Five guns were discovered, two of which were semi-automatic guns, she said.

  Other weapons and firearms were also retrieved by the police after the attacks on Friday.

  Police Commissioner Mike Bush told another press conference that his top priority wa

s on public safety across New Zealand and was supporting the victims and staff involved.

  ”The investigation into the intelligence failures is also a priority,” Bush said.

  The police chief was joined by representatives from the agencies working on t

he ground — Victim’s Support, City Council, Civil Defence, Fire and Emergency and the Defence Force.

  Bush acknowledged the bravery of the public, police officers and emergency responders.

  He said the arrest took 36 minutes from the first emergency call.

Responding to news of Sotoudeh’s sentencing, campaigners ag

  the compulsory hijab were defiant. “By creating fear and putting people in prison or forcing th

em to leave the country and live in exile, or threatening them, they cannot stop the compulsory hijab

protest in Iran,” New York-based Iranian activist Masih Alinejad, who has previously been represented by Sotoudeh, told CNN.

  In January, Sotoudeh’s husband, who is also a human rights lawyer, was convicted of security-related charges and sent

nced to six years in jail. He has appealed while waiting to serve his prison sentence.The inventor of the world

wide web has called for global efforts to tackle state-sponsored hacking, criminal behavior and abusive language on t

he internet, in an open letter marking the 30th anniversary of the revolutionary technology.

  Tim Berners-Lee acknowledged that “many people feel afraid and unsure if the we

b is really a force for good,” in a letter published for his World Wide Web Foundation on Monday.

  ”While the web has created opportunity, given marginalize

d groups a voice, and made our daily lives easier, it has also created opportunity for scam

mers, given a voice to those who spread hatred, and made all kinds of crime easier to commit,” the letter added.

Type “Meghan” and “Kate” in to Google News and you

  William, Kate, Meghan and Harry attend at the Church of St Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham estate on December 25, 2018.

  ”It’s just clickbait,” a source close to both duchesses told CNN.

  The pressure to produce ever more dramatic headlines to drive traffic is intense, perhaps even more so when it comes to Meghan than when Kate Mi

ddleton entered the royal family. Back then, the running theme was how Kate came from working-class roots.

  So, is there any truth to the rift? The duchesses were in their 30s when they met, and already had their own esta

blished, close-knit groups of friends. And while the pair may not hang out together or call each other regularly, the so

urce tells CNN, they are friendly and they text one another — linked as they are by a common bond.

The alleged rift has also been cited as the reasons Meghan and Harry

are moving out of Kensington Palace and plan to establish their own office. But CNN’s sou

rce said this is more to do with Harry wanting greater independence, and William needing his own team in pre

paration for so-called “reign change,” when Charles will become King and William will step up as the Prince of Wales.

with foreign delegates attending the 2018 Imperial Spri

  When meeting with foreign delegates attending the 2018 Imperial Springs International Forum in Guangzhou, south China’s Guangdong Province in Decem

ber, 2018, Chinese President Xi Jinping reiterated that China would adhere to the path of multilateralism and open its door wider to the world.

  “Opening-up and cooperation, a consistent theme of Chinese diplomacy in the year 2018

, has helped to clearly show China’s role and build China’s image in the international arena,” said Wang.

  Despite rising protectionism worldwide, China adhered to the principles of ope

ning wider to the world, defending the rule-based multilateral trading system. In 2018, China hosted the wo

rld’s first international import expo (the CIIE), attracting more than 3,600 companies from over 130 countries.

  2018 marks the 40th anniversary of China’s reform a

nd opening up. According to Xinhua, in four decades, the average personal disposable income in Ch

ina rose from just 171 RMB (about 25 US dollars) to 26,000 RMB (about $3,768) each year.

  “Forty years ago, reform and opening-up changed China fundamentally, opening a door for the country’s com

munication with the rest of the world,” said Wang, adding “I believe that following China’s continuing reform a

nd opening-up, the country will surely inject even greater vitality into the world over the next 40 years.”

According to the Tianfu Morning Post, Zhou Dongping, a lawyer of

According to the Tianfu Morning Post, Zhou Dongping, a lawyer of Chengdu Taihe Tai Law Firm, said:

“According to the relevant provisions, the number of days of annual leave that

should not be taken can be compensated by three times the daily wage.”

About half of workers enjoy paid annual leave

As for holidays, there is a widely circulated saying: “Europeans work for better holidays, while Chinese people

spend their holidays for better work.”

As early as 1936, France established relevant laws and became the first

country in the world to establish a paid annual leave system.

Until 1995, the Chinese also had the same rights. The Labor Law, which was

formally implemented that year, stipulated that workers who worked

continuously for more than one year were entitled to paid annual leave.

By 2008, the Regulations on Annual Vacation with Pay for Employees were promulgated and implemented, which

stipulated the specific number of vacation days: if the cumulative work of employees has been completed for less than one year and less than 10 years, the

annual vacation time will be 5 days; if the work has been completed for less than 10

years and 20 years, the annual vacation

time will be 10 days; if the work has been completed for 20 years, the annual vacation time will be 15 days

Up to now, it has been more than ten years since the promulgation of the

Regulations on Annual Leave with Pay for Employees, but the implementation is not satisfactory. According to Nanfang.com:

Since 2012, Zhao Lihang has worked in a clothing factory in Baoding, Hebei

Province. During her six years of work, she has never heard of the term “paid annual vacation” or enjoyed this

treatment. “In our industry, overtime pay is enough. If there is no paid annual vacation, there will be no such thing.”

Xiao Huang, who works in Beijing Branch of a daily chemical company in Zhejiang Province, knows that the head

office stipulates paid annual leave, but the leave must be approved by the head of the branch company. The head of the

branch company usually does not approve the leave, so he has not asked for paid annual leave. According to his wife’s response: “The day after I gave birth, the

company urged him to go to work and asked for leave without approval, and then withheld 400 yuan.”

Survey data from several authoritative bodies confirm the above cases:

The annual survey conducted by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Affairs in 60 cities shows that more than

half of the employees enjoy paid annual leave, and the proportion of those who take leave increases year by year. But in general, the implementation of paid

annual leave system is not ideal, there are still a considerable number of enterprises have not implemented paid annual leave.

A survey of 2552 workers conducted by the Tourism Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences

showed that 40.1% of respondents said they did not have paid annual leave.

The Social Survey Center of China Youth Daily once conducted a social survey of

4,325 people. 50.4% of the respondents said that their units never took paid vacations.

The data also show that the implementation of paid annual leave is better mainly for Party and government

organs, institutions, large state-owned enterprises

and foreign-funded enterprises,

while private enterprises

and small and medium-sized

enterprises are relatively poor.

What are you thinking of, old friend? The wildgeese never answer me.

Du Fu
REMEMBERING MY BROTHERS ON A MOONLIGHT NIGHT
A wanderer hears drums portending battle.
By the first call of autumn from a wildgoose at the border,
He knows that the dews tonight will be frost.
…How much brighter the moonlight is at home!
O my brothers, lost and scattered,
What is life to me without you?
Yet if missives in time of peace go wrong —
What can I hope for during war?


Du Fu
TO LI BAI AT THE SKY SEND
A cold wind blows from the far sky….
What are you thinking of, old friend?
The wildgeese never answer me.
Rivers and lakes are flooded with rain.
…A poet should beware of prosperity,
Yet demons can haunt a wanderer.
Ask an unhappy ghost, throw poems to him
Where he drowned himself in the Milo River.


Du Fu
A FAREWELL AT FENGJI STATION TO GENERAL YAN
This is where your comrade must leave you,
Turning at the foot of these purple mountains….
When shall we lift our cups again, I wonder,
As we did last night and walk in the moon?
The region is murmuring farewell
To one who was honoured through three reigns;
And back I go now to my river-village,
Into the final solitude.


Du Fu
ON LEAVING THE TOMB OF PREMIER FANG
Having to travel back now from this far place,
I dismount beside your lonely tomb.
The ground where I stand is wet with my tears;
The sky is dark with broken clouds….
I who played chess with the great Premier
Am bringing to my lord the dagger he desired.
But I find only petals falling down,
I hear only linnets answering.


Du Fu
A NIGHT ABROAD
A light wind is rippling at the grassy shore….
Through the night, to my motionless tall mast,
The stars lean down from open space,
And the moon comes running up the river.
…If only my art might bring me fame
And free my sick old age from office! —
Flitting, flitting, what am I like
But a sand-snipe in the wide, wide world!


Du Fu
ON THE GATE-TOWER AT YOUZHOU
I had always heard of Lake Dongting —
And now at last I have climbed to this tower.
With Wu country to the east of me and Chu to the south,
I can see heaven and earth endlessly floating.
…But no word has reached me from kin or friends.
I am old and sick and alone with my boat.
North of this wall there are wars and mountains —
And here by the rail how can I help crying?
