The idea of setting up such a museum came to Kang wh

en he visited a museum of broken relationships in Chengdu, capita

l of Southwest China’s Sichuan province, with two friends in January. They tho

ught it would be a good thing for Taiyuan to have a place for people to bury souvenirs from a failed relationship.

They acted fast and opened the museum after three months’ preparation.

The world’s first museum of broken relationships was founded in Croatia in 2006 by two artists, who

ended their four-year relationship and got the idea of setting up a museum to house their leftover personal items.

China has several museums of broken relationships now, in Nanjing, Chen

gdu, Xi’an, Wuhan, Beijing, Chongqing, Jinan, Harbin, Changsha, Guangzhou and Changchun.

Most Chinese State-owned enterprises are not relevant to tra

ade negotiations. Many are in non-tradable sectors such as property develop

ment, infrastructure, or concrete. Others are basically public utilities in telecoms or power.

Some Chinese car companies are State-owned, usually by provincial govern

ments, but the car business in China is very highly competitive and foreign brands are very successful.

In any case, the continuing growth of an already large private sector should alleviate foreign concerns

about competing with State-owned companies.

During the George W. Bush administration, the US imposed tarif

fs on Chinese steel, arguing that State-owned companies had an unfair advantage. But, US ste

el companies also face higher costs because of increased environmental protection. China’s current emphasis on bu

ilding an “ecological civilization” means that that kind of polluting heavy industry will be less viable.

what their children are really good at-and when

To ease the anxiety of parents, especially moms, kids should be taught how to

be a good person, rather than just be good at cracking exams and earning good scores.

Parents should be happy if their children excel in their own chosen

fields, and teach them the importance of honesty, kindness and shared responsibilities.

These good traits will help the kids a lot in their future development.

Over-anxious parents, on the other hand, could prevent kids from excelling in even their own chosen fields.

Ahmed Hassan Alhammadi, manager of the United Arab

Emirates Pavilion, hasn’t had time yet to visit the China Pavilion as he has been busy with his own pavilion.

“We will have more time later to have a walk in the park, and the China Pavilion will be our first stop for sure,” he said.

The International Pavilion, a venue for international horticultural exhibitions and competitions duri

ng the expo, has a public space with an overhang made of 94 structures representing flowers and umbrellas.

As the exhibition will also be held during the hottest days of the Beijing summer, these o

verhead structures will help reduce muggy conditions for crowds waiting in line for entry.

Using sustainable technologies, including natural ventilation, solar photovoltaics and rainw

ater recycling, the International Pavilion is also a green building with low energy consumption.

Xi stressed the importance of fulfilling bilateral and

 multilateral trade agreements, saying that Chinese people value a promise as much as tons of gold.

China pays close attention to building a law-based government, abolishing improper r

ules, subsidies and activities that undermine fair competition and treating all enterprises equally, Xi said.

The president highlighted building infrastructure of high quality, sustain

ability, risk resilience, reasonable pricing, inclusiveness and accessibility under the Belt and Road Initiative.

Infrastructure is a bottleneck in the development of many nations

, Xi said, and building infrastructure can help countries give full play to their ad

vantages in resources and better integrate into the global supply, industry and value chains.

Xi called on countries to uphold multilateralism, promote green devel

opment and fight corruption with zero tolerance in the process of building the Belt and Road.

It handed over 124 tons of hazardous waste in late 2012 to

 two local farmers who simply buried it and caused severe environmental degra

dation, according to a local court verdict reached in January of 2017. The company w

as fined 1 million yuan ($148,850), and two senior executives were given suspended jail terms.

In July 2017, a local environmental watchdog fined the company 280,000 yuan for va

rious violations including misconduct in hazardous waste management.

Hazardous waste could potentially be radioactive, toxic, highly corrosive or otherwise ha

rmful to people and the environment. Therefore, these materials require special treatment.

At a news conference in late March, Qiu Qiwen, head of the sol

id waste and chemicals management department of the Mini

stry of Ecology and Environment, said that the proper treatment of hazardous waste and other solid

waste is of great significance as it’s fundamental to improving air, water and soil quality.

Qiu’s department was newly established in the ministry’s latest institutional reshuffle in the second h

alf of last year — a move meant to strengthen governance over hazardous waste treatment.

destinations you can’t miss over Qingming Festival h

Qingming Festival, which falls on April 5 this year, is known as Tomb-Sweeping Day. Chine

se people value it very much because it is the grandest festival for ancestor worship in China.

The festival always appears about the beginning of April when spring has come. Not only is i

t a period for commemorating the dead, it is also a time for people to go out and enjoy nature.

Roman poet Virgil once wrote: Now every field is clothed with grass, and every tree wit

h leaves; now the woods put forth their blossoms, and the year assumes its colorful attire. In such a beau

tiful season, Chinese have a three-day vacation during the festival to go out to enjoy nature after a cold winter.

Where is the best place to go during the festival? Here are 10 popular tourist attractions.Located in Southwest China’s Sichuan

province, the Jiuzhaigou Valley is renowned for its scenic and aesthetic majesty. Its fairyland landscape of num

erous lakes, waterfalls, and limestone terraces with their attractive, clear, mineral-rich waters are set in spe

ctacular alpine mountains with a highly diverse forest ecosystem, demonstrating remarkable natural beauty.

The study shows that 40 out the 46 infants studied receive

nursing from one or more females other than their mothers. And 22 out of 46 infants were nursed by two or more females.

Four of the six infants who did not suckle from another female died during winter, whi

le only six of the 40 infants who received allomaternal nursing died, the study said.

Xiang said it comes at a great cost for golden snub-nosed monkeys to nurse infants

that are not their own since breastfeeding is one of the most energy-consuming things a mammal can do.

The behavior likely arose in close kinship-based groups in whic

h shared care helped the infants survive in the harsh, unpredictable environments, he said.

Such collaborative behavior was necessary in the early evolutionary age of hum

ans, so the study also provides a new perspective on human evolution study, Xiang said.
