So with the weather still snowy and cold over the weekend, and no ability to work on the chicken coop or recycled greenhouse project – it was time to cure the winter blahs with a building project! Since this was built for a king sized bed – we built it as two separate door frames and then attached them together once in the bedroom. We cut all of our pieces to length to start, including the cured cuts for the top of the doors. I applied glue to all of the joints and clamped them together while nailing on the backing boards.
Next, we flipped it around, and added a couple of 2 x 4″ trim boards on each side as well as the top to trim it out and give a little depth.

A home win against the same opponents and a victory away to bottom club Sunderland are Darlington's only wins in their last 14 games, having started with four wins from the first seven. He and Chris Rushworth quickly removed the home openers and it became 49 for three when replaced Arshad and struck with his fifth ball. The game was notable for the second-half appearance of Downing, with the England international kicking off his second spell at his hometown club in an attacking central-midfield role.
With the rest of the Boro squad currently on a training break in Marbella, it remains to be seen whether Downing heads straight out to Spain or remains at Rockliffe Park ahead of his new team-mates’ return next week.

For the second time in a week, President Xi Jinping has emphasized the important role of science and technology in powering China's development.
Speaking at a symposium on internet and cyberspace security on April 19 in Beijing, he called for China to make a breakthrough in next-generation internet technologies. On Tuesday, at one of the events highlighted most by Chinese media during his field-study tour of Anhui province, Xi visited the University of Science and Technology of China, in Hefei, the provincial capital.
At the university's Institute of Advanced Technology, Xi was shown achievements in areas ranging from artificial intelligence to public security, and from drones to alternative energy. He visited the control center of the 2,000-kilometer Beijing-Shanghai quantum communication main network, due to become fully operational in the second half of this year, and the university's Laboratory of Physic Science for Advanced Medical Application. Talking to faculty members, researchers and students, Xi praised the university's recent progress in innovation and new technologies.
He urged his audience to show a greater "sense of mission" by educating more people and making greater achievements in the new frontiers of science and technology.
An economy of China's size would be unsustainable if it relied entirely on imports for its new science and technologies, Xi said. Zhang Xiaojun, vice-president of Anhui Huami Information Technology, which has investment from Chinese mobile phone producer Xiaomi, was one of the high-tech company leaders who met with the president. He said he thinks Xi's comments will greatly encourage technology companies like his, and he is more confident in serving the Chinese economy with smart wearable gadgets.
Yao Hongyu, CEO of Beijing-based cloud computing and big data company Yoyo Systems, said he thought the president was saying in Anhui that the next 10 years is the best time for China to build up its power in new technologies. He said the country's current scientific research capability still lags behind many developed nations, and most of the core components of China's industrial robots are imported. Yao added that it will be "a long and tough journey" for the country to improve its capability on core technologies.
He said State-owned companies and government departments should buy domestic brands to support the development of China's science and technology, and the nation needs to develop core technology in fields such as cloud computing and big data. During his Anhui trip, Xi visited the village of Xiaogang, which was one of China's poorest four decades ago and took a lead in the country's economic reform and opening-up in the late 1970s.
He also visited mountainous Jinzhai county, where many farmers are beginning to use solar power to change their lives under the government program to eliminate poverty.
The opening ceremony for the Shanghai Tower's basement, which will house an exhibition on skyscrapers, and a five-story annex signify the upcoming completion of a building that has taken nearly eight years to complete. At 632 meters, it is the world's second-tallest building, after the 828-meter Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Ge Qing, deputy general manager of Shanghai Tower Construction and Development Co, the building's owner and developer, said an observation deck on the 119th floor will open in a few months, ahead of the building's official opening later this year. The world's fastest elevators, which can travel at speeds of more than 18 meters per second, will carry tourists to the observation deck in less than 55 seconds. The Shanghai Tower will also house China's highest restaurant on the 120th floor, the highest hotel lobby on the 101st floor, and the highest swimming pool, with a view from the 84th floor.
The building is the latest among a cluster of super skyscrapers in the city's Lujiazui Financial Area, which also houses the 468-meter Oriental Pearl Television Tower, the 421-meter Jin Mao Tower and 492-meter Shanghai World Financial Center.
Recruitment of students needed to bolster China's combat capability will be increased, even as the overall number of military school students will be reduced, officials said at a military school recruitment conference in Beijing that ended on Tuesday.
Compared with last year, 24 percent fewer students will be admitted to studies related to the army, including the infantry and artillery, while logistic and support departments will see their recruits fall by 45 percent, said a news release from the Central Military Commission's Training Management Department. In comparison, students studying in aviation, missile and maritime fields will increase by 14 percent. The changes were announced in line with ongoing military reforms and were made after rounds of negotiations with the army, navy, air force, rocket force, regional military commands and military academies, PLA Daily reported, citing an unidentified officer from the department's Training Establishment Bureau. The department has pledged to intensify supervision of military schools' admissions, the officer said, adding that officers and applicants' parents will be invited to monitor the admission process.
It also plans to revise the regulations on military schools' recruitment and students at such schools, PLA Daily said. A researcher in the Human Resources Department at the PLA Xi'an Political Academy said the military reform will lead to an adjustment in the proportion of each PLA service and corresponding changes to the military's training systems.
As the PLA moves to implement President Xi Jinping's order for a troop reduction of 300,000, it is natural for the military to reduce the number of new officers, said the researcher, who asked not to be identified. However, it must address the shortage of officers who have a deep knowledge of joint combat operations and advanced equipment, he said. The largest-ever airlift of lions will take place on Friday and is being organized and paid for by Animal Defenders International.
In a statement, the group said the first nine lions will be collected in the Colombian capital Bogota by a McDonnell Douglas cargo plane that will pick up the remaining 24 in Lima before heading to Johannesburg.
From there, they will be transported by land to their new home at the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in Limpopo province, where they will enjoy large natural enclosures.
It sometimes even sings - such as when Nicholas Speeks, a Briton who heads sales and marketing for Mercedes-Benz in China, drew cheers on Monday by serenading a crowd at Auto China in Beijing with the ballad Great China.
That was a day after the brand's new E-class car was unveiled to the tune of the Chinese classic song In the Field of Hope. China became the automaker's largest market when it sold 373,500 vehicles on the mainland last year.
The brand, whose name translates as "go fast", is not the only one attempting to make new inroads in one of the world's largest and fastest-growing auto markets.
Jaguar Land Rover CEO Ralf Speth ended his speech at the auto show on Monday by declaring in Mandarin, "I love China." His speech centered on the company opening an aluminum workshop in Jiangsu province earlier this year, its first such plant outside the United Kingdom.
While he gave the quote in English, it is more grammatically aligned with the Chinese version, which states: "If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Some contend that using foreign faces speaking in Mandarin to connect with customers is simply a superficial gimmick. But independent auto analyst Zhang Zhiyong said the trend goes deeper than skeptics believe. The head of BMW's China operations, Olaf Kastner, stumbled through an entire speech in Mandarin when the carmaker opened its engine plant in January in Liaoning province, its first outside Europe. The company's Chinese name, Baoma, translates as "precious horse" - as in the type that pulls a luxurious carriage.
Volkswagen Group's China head, Jochem Heizmann, said the company is empowering regional markets to be more demanding - hence its "made-in-China" and "made-for-China" strategies.
Its Chinese name, Da Zhong, translates as "great masses", perhaps befitting of its sales aspirations in the Chinese market. Lincoln China's president, Robert Parker, said, "People were buying everything brought here (China), but this continues to diminish.
JD Power Asia-Pacific auto operations general manager Geoff Broderick said: "Quality just gets you to the dance. That is to say, the global auto industry is perhaps realizing it requires more than just words to truly speak the same language. Auto China, which has attracted 1,600 exhibitors from 14 countries and regions, opened to the public on Wednesday.
To be honest, it's no wonder that a recent survey by the British Council found that the works of William Shakespeare are more popular and better understood in places like Brazil, China, India, Mexico and Turkey than in Britain. Such was my total lack of interest in the Bard that, when in my 20s I was offered a job at a newspaper in Stratford-upon-Avon, I was completely thrown when my mother exclaimed, "Oh, Shakespeare country!" I knew nothing about it. Of course, it took only minutes for the playwright to come up in a pub conversation with my new colleagues. Within days I was sat in the stalls of the imposing Royal Shakespeare Theatre, waiting for the opening scene of Henry IV Part I.
However, my newfound enthusiasm took a bit of a dent a couple of weeks later after I was asked to review a student production of Henry V.
Luhut Panjaitan, Indonesia's coordinating minister for political, law and security affairs, told the premier that Jakarta wants to expand its political and security ties with Beijing.
Luhut also proposed increasing fishery cooperation and welcomed Chinese investment, when he met with Li in Beijing at Zhongnanhai, headquarters of the central government. Earlier this month, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that China regards Indonesia as a priority in its neighborhood diplomacy. Luhut's visit comes at a time in which Beijing seeks to broaden the mutual understanding and communication with ASEAN countries. A ruling by an international arbitration body in a process unilaterally launched by the Philippines challenging China's territorial sovereignty in the South China Sea is expected to come within weeks. Jia Duqiang, a Southeast Asian studies researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said Indonesia, ASEAN's largest member country, shares with Beijing the goal of maintaining stability in the South China Sea and across the region. Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Saturday, at the end of a Southeast Asian tour, that China has reached consensus with Brunei, Cambodia and Laos that the territorial disputes in the South China Sea are not an issue between China and ASEAN and should not affect their relations. The Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region will abolish on Sunday a registration card system introduced two years ago to better manage the migrant population. The migrant registration card system, introduced on May 1, 2014, was intended to prevent criminal suspects from leaving their hometowns to carry out violent attacks elsewhere. People who wanted to work or stay in other places in the region were required to apply for the card at their hometowns and renew the card annually. In some places, it took too long to issue the card, which caused delays when people wanted to travel. Omar Ali, 21, who is from southern Xinjiang's Kashgar prefecture and has worked in a Uygur flatbread shop in Urumqi for two years, said: "I had to go home to renew my registration card, even though I wanted to stay in Urumqi and work.
Wang said Xinjiang will incorporate the information on the migrant population into the national ID card system in the future, adding that abolishing the registration card will help enhance ethnic unity. The two robots, which were jointly developed by a local company and the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, talked to Xi on Tuesday when he inspected achievements in technology innovation in the province. During his visit to the university's Institute of Advanced Technology, Xi praised technicians' work on innovation and said the country must rely on innovation to boost high-end manufacturing, since China has entered the new normal phase. China will emphasize empowering the traditional manufacturing industry with robotic technology in a plan, announced on Tuesday, that will not only triple the annual production of robots used in the manufacturing sector, but also calls for selling more than 30 billion yuan ($4.6 billion) worth of service robots by 2020. The robot can also offer services such as guiding people from one place to another or offering basic information based on oral requests, the statement said.
Sticking to a healthy diet, working out in a gym, visiting a laser clinic - how many measures have you tried in order to stay beautiful and young? New scientific research has revealed, however, that the secret to why some people look younger or older than their actual age lies in their genes. Research published by the scientific journal Current Biology on Thursday reported that people with one form of the MC1R gene, which has been linked to skin health and pigmentation, looked two years younger than those with a different form. Scientists from the Beijing institute, Erasmus University Medical Center Rotterdam in the Netherlands, consumer goods giant Unilever and other research centers jointly conducted the study on the genetics of perceived age. In the study, researchers showed high-resolution images of more than 4,000 faces to study subjects a total of more than 100,000 times to quantify how old the faces looked in the eyes of others. Then, after analyzing the relationship between the perceived age and about 8 million DNA variants, they identified the MC1R gene as a decisive factor in perceived age. Previous studies have found that MCR1 is the key gene for human skin's synthesizing of melanin, a deficiency of which may result in a lower defensive capacity of skin. As a result, people with the nonwild-type MC1R variant, who make up 5 to 10 percent of Asian populations, around 10 percent of Europeans and 20 percent of residents in Australia and Iceland, look older than their physical age due to easier skin damage.
It was decided at the meeting that more expertise should be targeted to promoting and marketing the country's museums, along with development of more creative souvenirs and increased efforts to attract tourists. The museums are also encouraged to cooperate with private enterprises to develop souvenirs and other products, and revenue that is generated should be used to promote services or better preserve collections.
Pan Shouyong, a museology professor at Minzu University of China, said: "It is important to supervise how they distribute the income. Pan said time is needed to establish a new management system for China's museums, and such a system must balance the museums' business operations and public service function.
Many Western museums have developed a myriad of creative souvenirs via selling franchises and even charge for use of their space for such purposes as shooting of films.


For instance, Beijing's Palace Museum, also known as the Forbidden City, announced last month that its sales of souvenirs last year surpassed 1 billion yuan ($154 million).
A Palace Museum employee shows mobile phone cases with cartoon images based on characters from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) at an exhibition in Hangzhou in October.
Fromleft: A journalist takes a selfie with a robot at the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, Anhui province. China plans to triple its annual production of robots used in the manufacturing sector to 100,000 in five years, an industry regulator said on Tuesday. The target is being pursued as the country upgrades its labor-intensive manufacturing with technological innovation. China is also aiming to sell more than 30 billion yuan ($4.6 billion) worth of service robots by 2020 amid surging demand in the healthcare, education and entertainment sectors, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The initiative details the growth of the robotics industry for the national 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20) with a view to increasing the quality of equipment, said Xin Guobin, the vice-minister of industry and information technology.
China became the world's largest market for industrial robots in 2013, surpassing Japan, according to the International Federation of Robotics. The organization estimates that the country will continue to drive demand for various types of robots due to the automation of its factories and increasing demand for service robots in an aging society. Increasing labor costs and labor shortages are pushing some manufacturers to adopt robots in product lines. Feng Xisheng, an academic at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said robots will be able to complete more complicated tasks in the future. The ministry will also encourage Chinese robot manufacturers to gain a bigger presence in the high-end market, an area currently controlled by overseas giants such as Fanuc Corp from Japan and the multinational ABB Group based in Switzerland. Industry sources said this goal will fuel the growth of Chinese robot manufacturers such as Siasun Robot& Automation Co and Hubei Huachangda Intelligent Equipment Co. Qu Daokui, president of Siasun Robot, China's largest robot maker by market value, said the country's robotics industry is still "like a toddler", but is growing. The company, eager to boost its competitiveness, is spending heavily on the research and development of industrial robot components.
Siasun is planning to acquire competitive domestic and international component manufacturers after the Shenzhen-listed company raised 2.96 billion yuan from five institutional investors in November. They are arguing that genetic evidence indicates they most likely were first tamed much earlier in southern China.
A research team led by Zhang Yaping from Kunming Institute of Zoology in Yunnan province has questioned the results of previous research, described as the "largest-ever survey of worldwide canine genetic diversity", after reanalyzing the data.
The team's conclusion was published this month as a letter by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a top US-based research journal, and previously by Cell Research, a Chinese Academy of Sciences' publication. The Chinese research disagrees with conclusions reached in October by a team of scientists led by Adam Boyko of Cornell University in the United States.
The Cornell research, which analyzed more than 185,800 genetic markers for 4,600 purebred dogs from 165 breeds, along with more than 540 village dogs from 38 countries, concluded that the earliest dogs appeared in Central Asia 15,000 years ago. Wang said: "First, the definition of Central Asia in the previous research is wrong, because they assigned Mongolia and Nepal to Central Asia. Wang also sequenced the genome of indigenous dogs living in the Chinese countryside and compared the data with that of the Cornell research, finding that Chinese dogs existed much earlier.
The team also sequenced 12 gray wolves - the modern dog's ancestor - 27 primitive dogs from Asia and Africa and 19 diverse breeds from across the world. The scientists said Chinese dogs have significantly more genetic diversity than other populations, and are genetically the closest to gray wolves, indicating that dogs were domesticated in southern East Asia about 33,000 years ago. Peng Minsheng, an associate professor at the institute who specializes in human and animal genetics, said the origin of dogs, the first domesticated animals, is a significant indicator in anthropological studies. The Supreme People's Court held a hearing at Jordan's request to decide whether to rehear his dispute with Chinese sportswear company Qiaodan Sports.
The hearing was attended by the US star's Chinese attorneys, representatives of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce and lawyers for Qiaodan Sports. Jordan, the owner of NBA franchise the Charlotte Hornets, did not appear at the hearing, as his team is playing in the league's 2015-16 playoffs. The administration refused Jordan's application, and a lower-level court in Beijing also ruled against his request for the Fujian-based company's use of the Qiaodan trademark to be suspended in early 2015.
Jordan later appealed to Beijing High People's Court but this was dismissed in July due to a lack of evidence to prove the existence of a definite link between the Qiaodan trademark and Jordan's name. The former Chicago Bulls legend then applied to China's top court for a rehearing of the case, with the court accepting his application in December. Zhang Guangliang, an associate professor of intellectual property law at Renmin University of China, said, "Jordan's team has to provide convincing evidence to prove the connection between the Chinese company's Chinese trademark and his English-language identity, which is a challenging task given the difference in languages.
Fu Minrong, a lawyer at the Xinwenhui Law Firm in Shanghai, said despite the Chinese company legally registered the trademark, its action may constitute an act of unfair business competition because it has apparently profited from making connections between its brand and Jordan's.
Representatives for the administration and Qiaodan Sports said at Tuesday's hearing that there is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the company's trademarks naturally referred to the six-time NBA champion.
The company also provided a statistic from the Ministry of Public Security at the hearing showing that about 4,200 Chinese people are named Qiaodan.
Liu Yinying, a representive for the administration, stressed that the original verdict dismissing Jordan's request for the Qiaodan trademark to be revoked should be reaffirmed even if a rehearing is needed.
Ma Dongxiao, from the Beijing Zhong Lun Law Firm representing Qiaodan Sports in the case, said that Qiaodan is not the only name that corresponds to Jordan, while Jordan is a common name in the United States.
After hearing the case for about four hours, the top court's collegiate bench did not announce whether the case will be reheard.
The collegiate bench consists of five senior judges specializing in intellectual property, including top court vice-president Tao Kaiyuan. US basketball icon Michael Jordan files lawsuit against Chinese sportswear company Qiaodan Sports, accusing it of infringing on his name rights by registering the trademark "Qiaodan"-which he said is a transliteration of his English surname.
Jordan appeals the case to the Beijing High People's Court after the intermediate court rules against him. Chinese basketball star Yao Ming sued Wuhan-based Yunhe Dashayu Sportswear Co for name and portrait infringements in May 2011 after the company marketed sneakers using the brand name Yaomingyidai, without the former NBA star's authorization.
Flowers are laid during a service in Slavutych, Ukraine, on Tuesday in memory of firefighters and workers who died after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Memorial services were held in Ukraine on Tuesday to mark the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which permanently poisoned areas of eastern Europe. Early on April 26, 1986, a botched test at the nuclear plant in then-Soviet Ukraine triggered a meltdown that spewed deadly clouds of atomic material into the atmosphere, forcing tens of thousands of people from their homes. Relatives of those who died as a result of the world's worst nuclear accident attended a candlelit vigil in a Kiev church, built in their memory.
Others gathered for a service in Slavutych, a town 50 kilometers from Chernobyl that was established to house many of those who had to leave their homes for ever. More than half a million civilian and military personnel were drafted in from across the former Soviet Union as so-called liquidators to clean up and contain the nuclear fallout, according to the World Health Organization. Thirty-one plant workers and firemen died in the immediate aftermath of the accident, most from acute radiation sickness. China said on Tuesday it has noted Japan's positive tone over bilateral ties, but warned Tokyo to stop making indiscreet comments on issues including the South China Sea. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the remarks after Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida delivered a speech on Sino-Japanese relations on Monday. Relations between the two countries nosedived after Japan moved to "purchase" the Diaoyu Islands in September 2012. Kishida said in his speech "the only choice" for the two countries is to try to contribute to the world through friendship and cooperation, and that he hopes to contribute to establishing China-Japan relations that "suit the new times". Kishida called on the two countries to expand cooperation and improve understanding and trust between their peoples. Hua said that China hopes Japan will match its deeds with "positive information" Kishida delivered in his speech, and make effective efforts to improve bilateral ties.
However, Beijing "regrets to see that Japan is still commenting indiscreetly on China over some issues".
Kishida had voiced "worry" over what he called China's "fast and opaque increase in military spending" and its activities in the East China Sea and the South China Sea. Hua said: "China has been sticking to the path of peaceful development and pursues defensive national defense policies.
Japan, as a country outside the South China Sea region, "should get its position and attitude right and stop making indiscreet judgments on China", Hua said. She emphasized that China's activities in the East China Sea and the South China Sea have been "totally legitimate and lawful".
Lyu Yaodong, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences' Institute of Japanese Studies, said Kishida's comments reflect a four-point agreement China and Japan reached in November 2014. The United States is attempting to "challenge the new maritime order" with its Freedom of Navigation Program, the Foreign Ministry has said in response to a Pentagon report.
The 2015 Freedom of Navigation Report, released on Monday, summarizes the country's challenges to what it calls - on the US Defense Department website - "excessive maritime claims" asserted by China and other countries including the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, India and Iran.
Washington proposed its Freedom of Navigation Program in 1979, before the 1982 signing of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Tuesday. Instead, it maintains this program, Hua said, to "ensure to the maximum degree US military forces' freedom and mobility in trespassing in the oceans".
The nature of the US program is to "press ahead with the unilateral US assertions" by forceful or threatening means, through which Washington "attempts to dominate maritime order", Hua said. Zhang Junshe, a senior researcher at the PLA Naval Military Studies Research Institute, said that under the UNCLOS, coastal states may require a warship to leave their territorial seas immediately if it neglects their laws and regulations on passage through the sea and "disregards any request for compliance". The US has taken such requests for compliance as excessive assertions, but US warships' incursions into other countries territorial waters "run counter to international law", Zhang said. Under the name of Freedom of Navigation, US warships and aircraft have intruded into China's territorial waters and airspace in the South China Sea in recent years, causing serious friction.
Even US allies, like Japan and the Philippines, suffered US warship intrusions into their waters and silently endured such bullying, Zhang said. Ruan Zongze, vice-president of the China Institute of International Studies, called Washington's claims to uphold international law ironic and a "a slap in the face". Liang Fang, a professor of naval studies at the PLA National Defense University, said the US seldom faults the behavior of countries such as the Philippines that occupy the Chinese islands, but it closely tracks every move by China. The US seeks allies to isolate and pressure China in the region, Liang said, but the cost will be high and "its losses may eventually outweigh its gains". The survey results, released on Tuesday, showed that 74 percent of Chinese thought things were getting better - the highest proportion out of all countries surveyed. The survey also found that 77 percent of those who said they were affected by discrimination during childhood in China believed the situation in the country had improved - the highest level among the countries surveyed. Worldwide, almost 40 percent of adults said they were discriminated against as children because of gender, ethnicity, religion, disability or because of where they lived, according to the survey, which questioned 18,172 adults in the participating countries. The survey was conducted for Save the Children between March 23 and April 14 by the international opinion research and consultancy GlobeScan.
Wang Le, deputy country director for China at Save the Children, said it is clear that the country has made great strides. However, Wang said that discrimination against children with disabilities in China may have been underestimated in the survey, because the public lacks awareness of unintended discrimination and there is a lack of exposure to children with disabilities, she said. The organization said children with disabilities are among the most deprived groups in China and face particular challenges in access to and completion of a good education. According to the draft of the revised Regulation on Safety and Security of Civil Aviation, all of the country's civil aviation personnel must undergo background security investigations.
Additionally, civil aviation and public security administrations, airports and airlines are asked to enhance their anti-terrorism intelligence capabilities. Safety and security plans drafted by foreign airlines that operate in China also must conform with China's laws and regulations, and the plans need to be examined and approved by local civil aviation administrations.
Besides anti-terrorism measures, the draft also bans passengers from attacking or occupying check-in counters, security check lanes and boarding gates in airports, and it stipulates penalties for various offenses. The draft is posted on the website of the State Council's Legislative Affairs Office to solicit public opinion before May 20. Industry observers said the new requirement that all aviation industry personnel receive security clearance is an important measure. Li Wei, an expert on anti-terrorism studies at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, said that eliminating human factors is the priority of all counterterrorism measures. The investigation of the explosions at Brussels International Airport in March found that 50 employees were influenced by extremism, and in previous cases, airport staff members were found to have helped terrorists pass security checks, he said. Liu Weimin, a law professor with the Civil Aviation Management Institute, agreed with the change. A man who allegedly murdered two children and injured four others in his village on Sunday is also suspected in another attack in a nearby city on the same day that left an elderly man dead and a child in critical condition, local police in Jiangsu province confirmed on Tuesday. The suspect, Xu Zengzhi, 46, was in police custody in Pizhou county, where the first attack occurred.
Xu told police that his wife had run away from home and he suspected that his neighbors were responsible for it, according to a statement on Tuesday from Pizhou police. The statement said that Xu, to get revenge, attacked six children from the neighborhood on Sunday.
On Sunday, the villagers' children were enjoying the day off from school while their parents were working in the garlic fields. About 3 pm, some villagers saw Xu leaving the village on his motorbike, and some said that the children were last seen playing outside Xu's house, according to the people.cn report. The parents eventually forced open the gate to Xu's front yard and found the children covered in blood lying in the front yard and in the house. According to an unconfirmed people.cn report, a neighbor said Xu often beat his wife and that he once forced her to kneel in the front yard naked during the winter while he poured water over her. Police discovered that the two elderly victims were Xu's parents-in-law and the boy is their youngest grandson. Greater China sales, once the tech giant's fastest growing market, fell to $12.49 billion, the company said on Tuesday.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said the Chinese economy has stabilized even though it may not be growing at the white-hot rates of the recent past. Luca Maestri, Apple's chief financial officer said the strong dollar played a role in the company's weakness in greater China.
The company forecast another decline in the current period because of waning demand for the iPhone as fewer users race to snap up the latest version of the device. Analysts had expected Apple to report revenue of $52 billion and net income of $11 billion, or $2 a share, according to consensus estimates compiled by S&P Global Market Intelligence. The company ended the quarter with $233 billion in cash and marketable securities, and said it would raise its quarterly dividend 10 percent to 57 cents a share and increase the amount of stock it.
The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China launched its first credit card in the United States on Tuesday, hoping to target overseas Chinese living and working in America, and to promote tourism between the two countries. ICBC will offer two card levels for both network brands, with the "Preferred" ustomers earning 1 percent cash back on their spending and "Premier" customers getting VIP benefits and accelerated cash back. Cai Jianbo, CEO of UnionPay International, said in an interview prior to the launch that Chinese customers who work or live in the US will find the new card useful for its familiarity, as will Americans who travel for business to China and countries near it. The credit card also was launched as part of cooperation efforts between the China National Tourism Administration office in New York and ICBC for the 2016 China-US Tourism Year.
He said that through its collaboration with ICBC, UnionPay could provide a new payment option for local residents and attract more American tourists to China, supporting the exchange and collaboration between the two countries. UnionPay is also hoping that it can entice American tourists to use the card when they travel to China, Cai said. Maria Lozbin was one of tens of thousands of people to be evacuated from their homes after the Chernobyl accident in April 1986, but returned with her family six years ago, to live off the land inside a 30 km (19 mile) exclusion zone where the risk of radiation poisoning remains.
Ukraine prepared on Tuesday to mark the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, caused by a safety test in the fourth reactor of the atomic plant that sent clouds of nuclear material across much of Europe. A 69-year-old with a ready laugh and a green shawl wrapped round her, Lobzin said the village to which she had been evacuated was full of drunks and drug addicts. The house into which she was moved was so shoddily constructed, with a huge crack running from the roof to the basement, that she was afraid of being killed or maimed by a falling object. Now she lives with her son and his family back in Chernobyl, in a zone that can only be reached by crossing a checkpoint and where guides accompany curious tourists with radiation meters. By contrast, a deathly silence hangs over the nearby abandoned town of Prypyat, where a rusting fairground wheel, and a kindergarten with toys, dolls and small beds are a grim testimony to the scale and speed of the disaster. Lozbin keeps chickens, geese and ducks, grows potatoes and tomatoes, and goes foraging for mushrooms in nearby woods.
A Greenpeace study also said people living in the area continue to eat and drink foods with dangerously high radiation levels. In particular, "the 30 km exclusion zone around the Chernobyl reactor remains highly contaminated and unsuitable to live in," it said. But that matters little to Lozbin, one of around 160 people estimated to have returned to the zone. Oleksandra's husband, who grew up in a village 7 km away, started coming to Chernobyl in short bursts starting in 2008 and the family settled back there permanently in 2010.

China has become a major market for foreign enterprises to develop intellectual property innovation, according to a senior judge from China's top court. With more frequent economic and trade exchanges, IP disputes involving foreign litigants nationwide rose from 2,840 in 2013 to 5,675 last year.
The figures were disclosed by Song Xiaoming, chief judge of a civil tribunal for IP cases under the Supreme People's Court. In 2013, 1,143 foreign IP administrative cases were heard by Chinese courts, with the number rising to 4,383 last year, according to the top court. Of the IP administrative cases involving foreigners, most were related to patents and trademarks, Song said, adding that those involving business secrets have also risen rapidly in recent years. A report by IP House, a third-party IP institute that analyzed 5,022 verdicts from 5,432 IP cases heard by the Beijing IP Court recently, found that 1,095 were related to foreign litigants. Of the foreign cases, 395 involved US enterprises, 2.7 times more than those from Germany, which was second on the list, the institute said. Among those involving US businesses, 346 were administrative IP cases concerning, for example, trademarks and patents. He said many US companies have applied to Chinese IP authorities for protection of their patents and trademarks, which is why a large number of disputes concern them. Chen Jinchuan, vice-president of the Beijing IP Court, said the US invests heavily in innovation and applies for patent protection in China the most often. Song said that with more Chinese companies expanding their business overseas, they should pay more attention to protecting their intellectual property in the countries concerned. Mao Mingqiang, an IP judge from Ningbo Intermediate People's Court in Zhejiang province, said the increase in foreign-related IP disputes is not necessarily a bad thing. The price of the tour, which will take place next year, has risen from 500,000 yuan in 2006. Zhang Guangrui, honorary director of the Tourism Research Center at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said, "Chinese tourists no longer travel in groups, wear the same hats with a travel agency's logo and jump out of buses at scenic spots to take photos.
According to Ctrip, people between 45 and 55 are the main age group for such trips and 41 percent of them are board chairmen or senior executives. Li Mengran, publicity manager at Beijing Utour International Travel Service, which in 2014 launched Magic Travel to cater to the expanding ranks of wealthy Chinese, said: "Compared with years ago, the market is much more mature. Li said travel products that offer "rich, exotic experiences" are now popular with high-end travelers, such as the company's Amazon River cruise or an expedition to a Kenyan national wildlife park.
Zhou Chen, 35, from Shanghai, said he prefers to visit little-known places or those with special themes.
Mei Baojiu was the ninth son of Mei Lanfang (1894-1961), who is considered the most outstanding Peking Opera artist of all time and is credited with bringing Peking Opera to the United States and Europe in the 1930s. Like his father, Mei Baojiu performed as a nan dan (a man playing a female role) - a Peking Opera practice forged at a time when women were forbidden to take to the stage.
Nan dan's heyday was in the first half of the 20th century, when Mei Lanfang, Shang Xiaoyun (1900-76), Cheng Yanqiu (1904-58) and Xun Huisheng (1900-68) - dubbed the Four Great Dan - established the four Dan styles of Mei, Shang, Cheng and Xun. With his rendition of classic Peking Opera pieces, such as Farewell My Concubine, The Drunken Beauty and Mu Guiying in Command, Mei Baojiu was also Mei Lanfang's only child who performed as a nan dan. Born in Shanghai in 1934, Mei Baojiu started learning Peking Opera at 10 with Wang Youqing. When he was 13, Mei Baojiu made his stage debut in Shanghai before starting to tour with his father's Mei Lanfang Peking Opera Troupe when he was 16. Sun wrote a 10-volume series, The English Translation Series of 100 Peking Opera Classics, published by the Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press. In 2009, Mei Baojiu, a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, put forward a proposal to introduce Peking Opera into elementary schools. In March 2012, he submitted a proposal to introduce an animated form of Peking Opera to get more teenagers interested in the art. During this year's CPPCC session, he said young students should learn traditional culture, such as Peking Opera and calligraphy.
Peake opened the race on Sunday by counting down in a video message as runners waited at the start line in the British capital. He then joined them 400 kilometers above Earth on a simultaneous feat aboard the space station, wearing weights to counter the zero gravity conditions. He followed up with a message sent after he completed the marathon, in which he noted that while he had run the 42 kilometers, the space station had traveled almost 100,000 km.
Peake is the second person to complete a marathon in space, after US astronaut Sunita Williams ran the Boston Marathon on the International Space Station in 2007 in 4 hr, 23 min, 10 sec. But Peake ran a faster marathon in space in 3 hr, 35 min, 21 sec, according to estimated times posted on the website of the European Space Agency. China accused the US on Monday of "hyping up" recent military flights around a Chinese island in the South China Sea. It said Washington's motivation was questionable and urged countries concerned to show "restraint" over the territorial issue.
Observers said the US is apparently using the timing to expand military deployment in the area.
Washington's comments came ahead of a ruling by an international arbitration body in a process launched unilaterally by the Philippines against China's territorial claim in the South China Sea. Asked about a South China Morning Post report on Monday that said China will start constructing an outpost on Huangyan Island this year, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said she had not heard of the case.
She also said that Huangyan Island is China's inherent territory, and Beijing will "take necessary measures to protect its sovereignty and justified rights and interests". Hua said China does not want to see further provocation by the countries concerned and hopes they will show restraint. The Defense Ministry on Monday also voiced objection to the flights, saying they were being staged under the guise of navigation and flight freedom, but they were actually pushing forward militarization in the South China Sea.
The Japan Times reported on Saturday that six US military aircraft left Clark Air Base in the Philippines on Tuesday last week and conducted "air and maritime situational awareness flights" near Huangyan Island.
The aircraft remained in the Philippines after a recent exercise by the two countries that included island-taking scenarios that were apparently targeted at China. The US Pacific Command said in a statement on Friday that six military planes flew last Tuesday through international airspace near Huangyan Island. US warships have stepped up operations around Chinese islands in the South China Sea, including one in October and another in January. Teng Jianqun, a researcher at the China Institute of International Studies, said: "The US military wants to use the Philippine bases to monitor and threaten Chinese islands, including Huangyan Island. Tao Wenzhao, a researcher of US studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said the US hyping of the flights is "definitely related to the ruling by the arbitration body", which is expected within weeks.


During a Southeast Asian tour by Foreign Minister Wang Yi, which ended on Sunday, China agreed with Brunei, Cambodia and Laos that the South China Sea territorial dispute should not affect relations between China and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
