An inmate serving life in prison for killing five people was fatally shot Thursday while trying to escape with two other convicted murders from a northern Michigan prison, authorities said. Seth Privacky, 30, was killed by a corrections officer at the Kinross Correctional Facility in Kincheloe, about 275 miles north of Detroit, the state Department of Corrections said. The minimum- and medium-security Upper Peninsula prison holds more than 1,800 prisoners and was placed on lock-down, but all inmates were accounted for, said Corrections Department spokesman John Cordell. Privacky was sentenced to life in prison without parole for a 1998 shooting spree that killed his parents, grandfather, brother and brother's girlfriend near Muskegon.
The other inmates who tried to escape were Brian Davidson, 31, who was convicted of beating a man to death, and Andrew Ross, 25, accused of killing his parents and older brother. The three inmates attacked the truck driver at a food service delivery loading dock at the prison and took his keys, Cordell said. Privacky had been at Kinross since August 2007, while Ross arrived in April 2009 and Davidson was transferred there in February, Woods said.
Authorities said Privacky's shootings were triggered when his father asked him to move out. Davidson was serving life in prison without parole after being convicted in the 2002 fatal beating of Jerry Steinberg. Ross pleaded guilty but mentally ill for the 2003 fatal shootings of his parents and older brother in Macomb Township.
His attorney in that case, Neil Rockind, said Thursday that he'd hoped Ross would get treatment for mental illness in prison.
After numerous discussions with the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office regarding the felony charge of possession of a weapon in a jail, it became very apparent that the prosecutor's office was merely pursuing the felony charge in order to protect and hide the misconduct of the State Police officer who effectuated the arrest. After months of battling with the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office, we were able to achieve a resolution that included only 2 misdemeanor counts.
Delaware is home to numerous incorporated Chinese businesses along with half the Fortune 500 companies, and Governor Jack Markell is looking to make it the base for a Chinese bank or financial services titan. Markell made his comments on Monday at Fordham University in a forum sponsored by the Chinese Business Lawyers Association. Markell also praised the state's courts and, in particular, Delaware's corporations court, or Court of Chancery. Markell said that about 80 percent of the wealth that will be created in the world over the next few years will occur outside of the US - "mainly in China". Elementary school students spend half their day receiving instruction in English and the other half in either Mandarin or Spanish.
Last year, he signed an agreement with Wanxiang Group, China's largest auto-parts manufacturer and the owner of a once-bustling General Motors plant near Newport, Delaware, for students to study at the company's facility in Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang province, where they take daily language classes, visit local schools, participate in cultural activities, and tour sites of science and technology companies.
Wanxiang provided a grant of about $450,000 for the study abroad sessions in 2015 and 2016, with up to 24 students and four teachers participating each year.
Markell noted that the state has hosted five trade delegations from China in the last year, and he said that the state's largest college can be an effective tool in recruiting Chinese businesses. Companies incorporating in Delaware began more than 100 years ago when then New Jersey governor Woodrow Wilson, who later became US president, opposed the business-holding company structure for his state. Markell said he is proud of the financial services sector in his state's economy, noting that JPMorgan Chase, Capital One and Barclays are among financial companies in Delaware.
Police officers from China have started joint patrols in Rome and Milan with their Italian counterparts to provide assistance to Chinese tourists who increasingly are choosing Italy as a vacation destination. Two uniformed Chinese police officers will patrol for two weeks beginning on Monday at the city's popular tourist spots, including the Colosseum in Rome and Milan's Gothic cathedral. The initiative stems from an agreement between the two countries reached in 2014 and confirmed last year.
The interior minister said he hoped the bilateral collaboration will be deepened with further agreements and extended to other Italian cities. Huang Feng, a professor of international criminal law at Peking University, said the four Chinese police officers will perform their duties according to Italian laws. The four officers, who speak Italian and English along with Mandarin, received training from Italian officers in Beijing before they were sent to Italy. Wang Gang, head of the European Division of the Ministry of Public Security's International Bureau, said that under a memorandum signed by the two countries, China will send officers to Italy during the peak tourist season every year, and Italy can also send police officers to patrol in China if necessary.
This new mode of law enforcement cooperation is based on strengthened mutual trust and demonstrates closer collaboration of police departments of the two countries after years' of efforts, said Zhao Yu, deputy dean of the International Law Enforcement Institute at the People's Public Security University of China. He added that the patrols have symbolic significance as China increasingly works jointly with foreign countries on law enforcement. Zheng Pengyuan, a Chinese national who has promoted education among Chinese-Italians in Milan since 2008, said Chinese police patrols are a timely action to ensure the safety of Chinese-Italians and Chinese students and tourists. In Milan's Chinatown, in the northern part of the Italian business capital, between 70 and 80 percent of shops are run by Chinese owners, but around 80 percent of residents are Italian.
Patrizia Facchinotti, owner of a fruit and vegetable market in the same district, said, "I think Chinese policemen can definitely help. Chinese police officers Shu Jian (right) and Sa Yiming patrol with their Italian counterparts near the Colosseum in Rome on Monday under a Sino-Italian agreement launched on Monday. Yinchuan, capital of the Ningxia Hui autonomous region and home of one of China's largest Muslim communities in the landlocked region, has eagerly awaited the landing of the first-ever Emirates flight. The Dubai-to-Yinchuan flight is scheduled for every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. He said China and Arab countries have great potential for cooperation in trade, finance, tourism and real estate, and this flight serves as a good start. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman and chief executive of the airline and Emirates Group, said the route provides fast and convenient connections to Middle Eastern, African and European destinations via Dubai.
After landing at Yinchuan Hedong Airport, the flight will continue farther east to Zhengzhou, capital of Henan province, before returning.
The new flight is the latest fact or boosting Ningxia's positioning of itself as a gateway from China to the Arab world and a strategic point in the Belt and Road Initiative. Three top government and military health authorities have jointly launched an investigation into the Second Hospital of the Beijing Armed Police Corps, the National Health and Family Planning Commissions aid on Tuesday.
It said it would conduct the probe jointly with the health bureaus of the Central Military Commission and the national Armed Police Force.
The commission said on Monday that it and other ministries have set up a team to probe search engine giant Baidu to see whether misleading information regarding cancer treatment had led college student Wei Zexi,21, to choose the hospital for treatment. Wei, a computer science major at Xidian University in Xi'an, Shaanxi province, died on April 12.He was diagnosed in 2014 with synovial sarcoma, a rare, terminal cancer of the soft tissue, and underwent surgeries and chemotherapy in other hospitals before turning to immunotherapy at the Second Hospital of the Beijing Armed Police Corps last year. Two months before his death, Wei said in an online post that a doctor at the hospital told his father that the immunotherapy was developed in the United States and was very effective. The hospital and Baidu became the target of public criticism in the past few days after media reports raised questions about Wei's treatment and the search engine's paid listing practice. The National Health and Family Planning Commission prohibits public hospitals from contracting their departments to others.
However, military hospitals such as the Second Hospital of the Beijing Armed Police Corps are administered by military authorities.
Although military hospitals are likewise banned from contracting departments to other companies, according to regulations issued by military authorities, in practice many military hospitals contract some of their departments to others for profit, media reports said. A man who revealed that one of his relatives was receiving the therapy at the facility, said on Tuesday,"The hospital promised us that the treatment is effective and we have spent a lot of money. The man, who is from Beijing and requested that his name not be used, said he talked with a vice-president of the hospital on Tuesday, and learned that the hospital is investigating the case and will give the families an explanation and a response on Friday about whether it will provide are fund. The man said about 20 people related to current or former immunotherapy patients at the hospital are joining a group seeking a response, a refund and compensation from the hospital for expenses they incurred during treatment, such as hotel costs. He said they are waiting for the hospital's answer about whether the immunotherapy is illegal and whether the department offering the service had been contracted. Meanwhile, in an internal statement issued by Baiduon Tuesday, the company said it would improve its background check and evaluation system to screen out any improper information.
A 63-year-old woman, who only gave her surname of Lu, said she is also demanding a refund of about 30,000 yuan for the therapy that her late husband, who suffered from liver cancer, had received at the hospital in December 2014.
Lu said her husband's condition worsened after the therapy, which lasted for less than a day. Her husband was transferred to a private hospital for treatment, but he died in March last year, she said. A man surnamed Zhao from the Inner Mongolia autonomous region said his wife, about 50 years old, had received the immunotherapy treatment in question at the hospital in the past few days for nasopharyngeal cancer and stopped the treatment after the media reports. Zhao said his wife had therapy in June last year, and the result was satisfactory, but the same therapy this year did not produce results. Although the two therapies were the same, the price for the therapy last year was about 67,000 yuan, while the second round of therapy cost 37,000 yuan, he said. The couple has spent nearly 150,000 yuan for the treatment, taking into account other expenses such as trip costs and renting hotel rooms, he said. A woman identified only as Lu tells reporters at the Second Hospital of the Beijing Armed Police Corps in Beijing on Tuesday she is seeking are fund for therapy received by her husband, who had liver cancer and died in March last year. Kishida left Beijing on Sunday and began visiting Thailand, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam through Friday. In a policy speech delivered in Bangkok on Monday, Kishida addressed maritime security and renewed a call for countries to respect the "rule of law".He gave a briefing on the statement of the G7 foreign ministers' meeting in Hiroshima last month regarding the maritime issue. Additionally, Japan's Fuji Television said that, because attitudes differ among ASEAN countries toward China's maritime presence, Kishida emphasized that "it is important for ASEAN to demonstrate uniformity". Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said on Tuesday that China-Japan ties are "still vulnerable and complicated", and China hopes Japan will "make substantial efforts" to improve the relations. The ministry did not respond to Kishida's comment about the ASEAN countries and the South China Sea. Zhong Feiteng, an expert on Asia-Pacific affairs at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said Tokyo likely will continue stirring tension in the South China Sea, since it will host the G7 leaders' summit later this month. Kishida's high profile on maritime issues "showcases Tokyo's impulse to seek greater development of its defense capabilities after the country adopted radical new security bills," Zhong added.
Obviously, for the vast majority of customers of these services in China this is no problem, as every Chinese citizen is issued with an identity card, which they can carry in their wallet or purse, providing an easy means of identification and a unique number that offers them the ability to prove who they are. Lacking this "magic number" means that, for foreign residents, something which would otherwise be relatively straightforward - such as purchasing train tickets - is often a much more cumbersome and tiresome process.
The issue of how to prove one's identity came to my mind again when a friend pointed out that he was asked for his bank details when seeking to sign up for membership of a group on WeChat - China's popular online messaging app. I had a similar experience a few days ago when I received a request to join a WeChat group. Now I am very sorry to say this to such an auspicious company as Tencent, but I see no conceivable reason on this Earth as to why I should furnish them with my bank card details simply for the "privilege" of chatting with people online. In fact, whenever I am asked to provide such information online, unless it is absolutely necessary, alarm bells start to ring in my head, as I would contend that the more you spread such sensitive information across the web, the more vulnerable you, and you hard-earned cash, become.
Surely a more reasonable option for a platform such as WeChat would be to ask for the ID card number of Chinese users and the passport number of foreign users.
Perhaps a sensible move for the Chinese authorities would be to issue all foreign residents with a number on their residence permit in equal length and format to that on the Chinese ID card, to ensure that they have the same ease of access to online services as their Chinese friends and neighbors, and to make their stay in China more enjoyable. President Xi Jinping has issued a stern warning of "cabals and cliques" in the Communist Party of China and reiterated the nation's determination to press ahead with the fight against corruption.
Xi, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, gave the speech in January at a plenary session of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, which mapped out anti-graft work for this year. He said "some officials have been forming cabals and cliques to covertly defy the CPC Central Committee's decisions and policies", and they "risk compromising the political security of the Party and the country". Since the anti-graft drive was launched three years ago, senior corrupt officials have been found to have forged close relationships with groups of officials at local government level and with business tycoons in different factions with shared interests, such as the "oil clique", "secretary clique" or "Shanxi clique".
Zhou was said to have formed several networks within the sectors he was in charge of, including law enforcement organs and State-owned enterprises such as China National Petroleum Corp, where a number of corrupt officials were investigated for involvement in Zhou's "oil clique".
Wang Yukai, a professor of public administration at the Chinese Academy of Governance, said such factions are likely to result in severe corruption in an entire area or industry, and the Party must adopt an "iron-fist policy" to nip the cliques in the bud.
He reiterated the Party's determination to root out corruption, and stressed that the efforts should adhere to the goal of firmly curbing any increased corrupt behavior in the Party. The promise was made during the first visit to China by the Southeast Asian country's new president, two weeks after his inauguration.
The visit also comes 10 days after Laos said it understands China's stance on the South China Sea issue. He was elected as president on April 20 and is also general secretary of the Central Committee of the Lao People's Revolutionary Party. Xi said both countries should align China's Belt and Road Initiative with the Laotian strategy of turning the land locked nation into a land-linked one.
China fully supports the work performed by Laos as the rotating president of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations this year, Xia dded.
Bounnhang Vorachith thanked Xi for his congratulatory letters and for sending a special envoy to Laos after he was elected general-secretary in January. The two leaders witnessed the signing of 10 cooperation documents, including Chinese loans for key infrastructure projects in Laos. Wang Yuzhu, who researches Southeast Asia at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said:"It is natural for the new Laotian president to visit China right after assuming office.
During a visit to Laos by Foreign Minister Wang Yi on April 23, Beijing and Vientiane reached consensus that disputes over some of the Nansha Islands and reefs are not an issue between China and ASEAN, and should not affect the development of these relations.
A ruling by an international arbitration body in a process launched unilaterally by the Philippines challenging China's territorial sovereignty in the South China Sea is expected within weeks. Clasion provided immunotherapy technology services for the Second Hospital of the Beijing Armed Police Corps, where Wei received immunotherapy treatment. Wei learned about the treatment from search engine giant Baidu, but died last month from a rare form of cancer. Since news of his death broke, it has been impossible to access Clasion's website, which is displaying the words "coming soon".
Asked if there was a connection between Clasion and the hospital, VCANBIO's general manager Wu Mingyuan said it was not possible to give a response at present and the company would release a statement later. Clasion's main business involves research and development of cellular immunotherapy and providing technical services for medical institutions. The company's technical services for this therapy include using a patient's own cells to fight cancer, and the controversy over Wei's death centers on such therapy.
Clasion and Kangxin are both controlled by Chen Xinxi and Chen Xinxian from Putian, Fujian province.
Shares in Hua Xia Healthcare Holdings dropped by 13 percent to close at 53 Hong Kong cents ($0.06). Ji Xuwo, a healthcare analyst at Orient Securities in Beijing, said: "This case is expected to accelerate the launch of standardized regulations on the cellular therapy industry in China.
Ying Jianming, deputy director of the Pathology Department at the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences' Cancer Institute and Hospital, said immunotherapy is used to induce, strengthen or suppress an immune response to help fight diseases including cancer.
It includes two main approaches - stimulating the patient's immune system to work harder or smarter to kill cancer cells and giving the immune system new components. Two drugs inspired by immunotherapy are available in the United States and Europe mainly to treat lung, liver, stomach and breast cancers and melanoma, a type of skin cancer. Cai Qiang, who heads a medical tourism agency with headquarters in Beijing, said more Chinese cancer patients are traveling overseas to seek such treatment. Ying urged people not to condemn immunotherapy simply because of media reports on Wei's death. The therapy Wei received was first studied in the US but later phased out due to doubts that emerged during the clinical trials, Ying said.
But in China, this type of treatment, which Ying stressed would be helpful for some individual patients, is still practiced both in studies and for clinical use.


Ying added that one of the two immunotherapy drugs available in the US and Europe is expected to be approved for use in China and could benefit patients by the end of the year. More than two thirds of Beijing's buses will run on natural gas or electricity by 2017 as the city builds more charging stations, according to Beijing municipal government.
The Beijing government started limiting the number of private cars on the city's roads from 2011, because of increasingly serious traffic congestion and air pollution. Builders will break ground this summer on the Vista Tower, a 95-story condominium and hotel complex that will be Chicago's third-largest skyscraper, the two companies and Chicago city officials said in a statement.
Last week, affiliates of Chicago-based Magellan Development Group and Beijing-based Wanda Group completed a land purchase for the building, which will have 406 residential units, the 200-room Wanda Vista luxury hotel and approximately 9,000 square feet of retail space. Developers said the project would employ 2,000 construction workers and, eventually, 500 permanent, full-time employees in the completed building. An executive for the Chinese hotel chain said the Chicago building would represent the company's signature project. The building will be located near Chicago's Lake Michigan shoreline at the end of the city's Upper Wacker Drive, south of the Chicago River.
China will support the education of religious professionals to ensure they receive training that will fully prepare them to carry out their duties in away that will build trust with believers, President Xi Jinping said at a recent religious affairs conference in Beijing.
As a result, the next generation of religious professionals and leaders, such as those studying at the China Islamic Institute in Beijing, will play an important role in guiding their congregations and ensuring that they follow the path of peace. After four years of study, the graduates can recite the Quran in flawless, unaccented Arabic.
The team is made up of officials from the Cyberspace Administration of China, the National Health and Family Planning Commission and the State Administration for Industry and Commerce-the regulator of online advertisement. Jiang Jun, spokesman for the CAC, which is the country's internet regulator, said the results of the investigation will be made public. The parents of Wei Zexi, a computer science major at Xidian University in Shaanxi province who died of a rare form of cancer, wait outside a funeral home in Xianyang, Shaanxi, on April 13.
Nasdaq-listed Baidu has been under mounting public pressure since a couple said online that their 21-year-old son died of cancer after receiving immunotherapy at a hospital in Beijing. Wei Zexi, a computer science major at Xidian University in Shaanxi province, died from synovial sarcoma, a rare cancer of the soft tissue, on April 12. The treatment was administered at the biological treatment center of the Second Hospital of the Beijing Armed Police Corps. The parents said their son learned of the treatment and the hospital by researching the disease on Baidu, and that the hospital was listed second from the top on the first page of search results. Before Wei's death, he also had posted about his experience on the Q&A website Zhihu, calling the treatment useless and criticizing Baidu's paid listing practice. Compared with other search engines such as Google, which clearly marks search results that are advertisements with a color label, Baidu's paid listing results do not have clear labels. Instead, they are marked by two small, gray characters denoting the listing as a paid promotion.
In a media statement, Wei's parents said: "We don't want any compensation, nor will we sue any organizations or individuals. In Wei's posting, he said other public hospitals had told him his days could be numbered, since end stage cancer had been diagnosed in 2014.
The young man's case stirred public wrath in the past few days over regulation of online advertising, with the debate focusing on whether Baidu should bear responsibility for the medical promotions it offers. Baidu said in a statement on Sunday that it will fully cooperate with the government investigation and that false online information should not be allowed. In an earlier reply on Sunday, Baidu had said it asked authorities to investigate the hospital's subcontracting of the controversial therapy. Media reported on Monday that the biological treatment center at the hospital where Wei received the therapy was not part of the hospital but was subcontracted to a private company in violation of regulations. Ying Jianming, deputy director of the Pathology Department of the Cancer Institute and Hospital at the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, said the immunotherapy treatment in question is regulated as medical science research, and thus it must not be commercially marketed or practiced as regular therapy. But in many military-affiliated hospitals such as the one Wei had been to, "it's not strictly regulated," he said, adding that in large public hospitals, "there are no such practices".
However, the possibility that such treatment might be helpful for some patients cannot be ruled out, Ying said. A terminal synovial sarcoma patient can usually live for one month to one year with mainstream therapies like surgery and chemotherapy, he said.
ZhuWei, an associate professor at China University of Political Science and Law, said a detailed regulation on internet advertisement should be issued as soon as possible. The State Administration for Industry and Commerce made public a draft regulation on online advertising to solicit public opinion last summer, but no announcement has been made on its status. The first to blame in this event should be the private center and the Second Hospital of the Beijing Armed Police Corps. It's not the sole responsibility of the search company to identify information, but we need a comprehensive system and coordinated efforts from society based on business credit and government management systems. It's no surprise to see the search provider, Baidu, under the microscope because of the event, and it received massive criticism for loose supervision of advertising. Synovial sarcoma is a rare form of cancer that can develop close to joints in the arm, neck or leg.
The cancer is more common among young people than many other cancers and about 15-20 percent of cases occur in adolescents and young adults. Primary synovial sarcomas occur most often in soft tissue near large joints in the arm and leg but such cancers have been found in most human tissues and organs, including the brain, prostate and heart. Mainstream treatments include surgery to remove the tumor and a safety margin of healthy tissue, conventional chemotherapy to reduce the number of remaining microscopic cancer cells, and radiotherapy to reduce the chance of local recurrence. The BBC reported on Monday that Wright gave some technical proof demonstrating that he had access to blocks of bitcoins known to have been created by bitcoin's originator. In December, police raided Wright's Sydney home and office after Wired magazine named him as the probable creator of bitcoin and holder of hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of the cryptocurrency, which has attracted the interest of banks, speculators, criminals and regulators.
The treatment of bitcoins for tax purposes in Australia has been the subject of considerable debate. In a blog post dated Monday, Wright appeared to out himself as bitcoin's founder by posting a technical explanation, including examples of code, of the process by which he created the currency. The song, called Battle Declaration, was posted on 81.cn, the PLA Daily's website, on Thursday. Previous PLA songs have been sung to the accompaniment of orchestral melodies, and their lyrics were carefully worded to avoid being too aggressive.
The video shows soldiers training and exercising, fighter jets conducting dogfights and missiles being fired, among other military activities. Almost all of the PLA's best weaponry is displayed in the video, including the aircraft carrier Liaoning, J-11 fighter jet, Type-99A tank and DF-11 ballistic missile.
Satellites and spacecraft also appear in the video, which indicates the PLA has placed unprecedented importance on its space force, said a PLA publicity expert who asked to be identified only as Jiao. Moreover, the appearance of the military's space assets also intends to impress upon viewers that "the PLA is no longer the poorly equipped one that they saw from TV dramas, but a powerful force as modernized as the United States military," he told China Daily. Colonel Wu Qian, a spokesman for the Defense Ministry, said at a news conference on Thursday that a man's youth is not only about being cool, but also about being responsible for the nation and its security. When they first enthuse about a new movie, I think it must be a darn good one as it would be very difficult to get so many of them to reach a consensus otherwise. Worse than the customary congratulations is the creation of an echo chamber inside which people automatically tune out voices of dissension.
It would take guts to find some middle ground where you cannot speak the truth but at least refrain from joining the lies, or the pomposity. The larger world of the internet is supposed to solve this problem by providing an unlimited space for news and views.
With social media, you can essentially select your kindred spirits and refuse to listen to anyone who dares dissent.
The PLA Navy joined countries from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in a maritime exercise on Monday, signaling a further step in recent frequent exchanges with the regional bloc. The missile destroyer Lanzhou from the PLA's South Sea Fleet, carrying a Z9C helicopter and a special operations unit, arrived in Brunei on Sunday for the joint drill under the ASEAN+8 defense ministers' meeting. The 10+8 mechanism refers to the 10-member ASEAN and eight of its partners - China, Russia, the United States, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Australia, New Zealand and India. Aimed at boosting maritime security and combating terrorism, the drill is scheduled to end on May 12 in Singapore, according to Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian.
The destroyer left Sanya, Hainan province, on Thursday and conducted a number of exercises en route. He said frequent maritime missions, such as joint drills and anti-piracy tours in the Gulf of Aden, have made the crew confident about such operations. Senior Colonel Lai Minghe, political commissar of the Mission Command Post on the destroyer, said the drill will increase member countries' sharing of maritime information and complete the process of maritime security cooperation. The exercise comes as Beijing seeks to broaden mutual understanding and communication with ASEAN countries. During a Southeast Asian tour by Foreign Minister Wang Yi late last month, Brunei, Cambodia and Laos agreed with China that disputes over some of the Nansha Islands and reefs are not an issue between China and ASEAN and should not affect these relations.
On Sunday, the Haikou government said it had accepted the resignation of Huang Hongru, head of the city's Xiuying district, as he had been negligent in supervising leading administrators to remove illegal houses in Qionghua, a village in Changliu township. The case resulted in serious clashes on Friday and Saturday between law enforcers such as chengguan, or urban patrol officers, and villagers who refused to allow the demolition of their houses. The clashes were announced by the government's Information Office on Monday through its micro blog. The case triggered public outcry after a one-minute video clip of the attack was posted online during the weekend that showed some women and children being hit by demolition workers. The government criticized the attackers, saying officers beating women and children cannot be tolerated.
But it said the demolition of illegal buildings will continue, as it is part of the province's plan to become an international tourist island. Wang Wanqiong, a criminal lawyer who observed the case during the weekend, said the key is to find the root cause of the conflict and how the attack happened. On April 18, the government posted a notice to villagers, ordering them to remove the illegal buildings before April 26, or they would be demolished.
Tan said the demolition workers had not agreed that villagers could remove furniture during the weekend, which had intensified the conflict. Beijing Homelink Real Estate Brokerage Co, also known as Lianjia, said on Saturday that its 6,000 outlets will help children who have lost contact with their parents to obtain police assistance. The company said the decision forms part of a program launched by Child Safety Emergency Response, a nongovernmental organization that is devoted to helping missing children, including those who are abducted, kidnapped or run away from their parents. However, the company's decision has not been supported by the authorities, with police in at least two provincial areas saying it is not wise for children to be asked to make detours to find one of the real estate agency's outlets.
The Police Internet Department at Chongqing Public Security Bureau said in a micro blog post on Saturday that it would be much better for the children to remain in the areas where they became lost, and wait for their parents to reach them. Reports also suggested that the courier service SF Express Co would use its outlets for the same purpose. It said that delivery couriers would be willing to help any missing children who turn to them for assistance.
Zhang Yongjiang, secretary-general of Child Safety Emergency Response, confirmed that Homelink and several other companies will form part of a program by the organization that is devoted to helping missing children to get in touch with police. Zhang said the main aim of the program is to help children in a way similar to national information database Amber Alert in the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe.
On Saturday, more than 70,000 visitors flocked to the 787-meter-long, 8-meter-wide alley that has eight narrower and symmetrical alleys on either side, while more than 90,000 visited on Sunday - similar figures to the same period last year. Urban patrol officers were sent to entrances to the alleys to ensure the implementation of the new regulation and to direct the crowds, China News Service reported. The officers initially suggested that tour groups change their plans to visit the 740-year-old alley, but when they insisted on arriving, they split them up into smaller groups and allowed them entry, Beijing Morning Post reported. To ease congestion, the subway station at the south end of the alley was only used as an exit but not an entrance when the number of visitors surged.
Despite the huge numbers of people, the crowds flowed smoothly, and no complaints were received about security and service during the weekend, the authorities in Dongcheng District said.
According to the Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development, an average of more than 30,000 people visit Nanluoguxiang each weekday, with the number rising to 50,000 during weekends.
The China National Tourism Administration said the alley is designed to cope with a maximum of 17,000 people at any one time. The district authorities decided to introduce the ban on large tour groups last month to reduce the impact of tourists' on local residents and the potential risk posed to historic buildings.
Nanluoguxiang's governing body also took the initiative to remove its rating as a National AAA Grade scenic area in the hope of reducing the influx. The China-led multilateral development bank has identified a series of co-financing projects with the Asian Development Bank, according to a statement released by both banks on Monday. The statement came after AIIB President Jin Liqun and ADB President Takehiko Nakao signed a memorandum of understanding in Frankfurt on the sidelines of the ADB's 49th annual board of governors meeting. The first of these projects is expected to be Pakistan's M4 highway, a 64-kilometer stretch of motorway connecting Shorkot to Khanewal in Punjab province. The financing level will be $300 million, with the two banks contributing roughly an equal amount, Nakao said. Responding to questions on whether the project in Pakistan had been chosen first as a result of close ties between China and Pakistan, Nakao said this had come about "just by chance".
The AIIB expects to approve about $1.2 billion in financing this year, including 12 projects with the World Bank and the ADB. A Financial Times report said earlier that besides the project in Pakistan, the AIIB is considering a road project in Tajikistan and a ring road in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Soon she was completing marathons, and before too long she was flying around the globe to participate in some of the world's best-known sporting events. This year, 150 Chinese - 106 men and 44 women - registered for the April 24 London Marathon, a race that attracts 38,000 runners annually and is one of the six top marathons in the world.
His company, which specializes in organizing running training camps and tours, is among a number of enterprises serving the growing legion of Chinese runners. Last year, just three Chinese people took part in the Jerusalem Marathon, including two who were local residents, according to Du.
More than 700 Chinese also entered the Berlin Marathon, one of the top international events, in September, he adds.
The Chinese presence at international marathons also is a point of pride as an emerging China makes its mark in many global spheres. That presence also means people from other nations have greater exposure to, and camaraderie with, sophisticated and health-conscious Chinese people. As for first impressions, "running is much better than (going abroad to) purchase goods", says Wang Xiaogang, 40, a Beijing running coach and freelance journalist, who has frequently taken part in overseas marathons. Xie says she had one such positive experience after crossing the finish line at the Boston Marathon on a cold, rainy day in April last year. One of the most compelling stories at the April 18 Boston Marathon this year was that of Lauren Woods, the 34-year-old Boston police officer who was running the marathon in memory of Lu Lingzi, a 23-year-old Chinese student who was one of three people killed in the 2013 bombings at the marathon finish line. Woods was one of those who tended to Lu, a marathon fan and spectator at the event, as she lay dying.
The new Chinese marathoners who can afford to go globe-trotting are mostly within the social status and age groups that have led China's modernization and economic rise in recent decades.
Chinese runners at this year's London Marathon included 30 from the mainland led by Tian Tongsheng, 63, one of the founders of Runnar, a company that organizes trips and assists marathoners.
Tian certainly breaks the traditional mold of aging in China, where the retirement age for men is 60. The first group, which may have advanced academic degrees, comprises some 65 to 70 percent of runners registered with his company. The second group, which makes up 30 to 35 percent, is also well-off, but many of them did not go to college, he says. Ninety percent of those who run outside China were born in the 1960s and '70s, putting them between the ages of 37 and 56, he adds. Oliver Wang, who is also CEO of Beijing-based Palace Travel and its US branch, which has runners as clients, too, describes the situation as part of a trend that started earlier in the West, in which the wealthy middle-aged started spending lots of money on fancy bicycles, for example, instead on sports cars. Du, of ZX-Tour Co, says one of the reasons for the explosion in travel is that people who have run the relatively new marathons in China are looking for a taste of better-run races abroad, as well as higher athletic levels. But in addition to that, what could be cooler than posting a selfie as you cross the finish line in Paris, Boston or Berlin, or wrap yourself in the national flag like an Olympian?
Li Xibei, 30, an information technology worker from Central China who lives in New York City, raised funds to provide cleaner air to families in his homeland by running the North Pole Marathon this month. Using Crowdrise, a crowdfunding website, he raised $6,030 - 18 percent more than his target sum - for the Blue Sky Lab campaign run by Friends of Nature, one of the oldest environmental NGOs in China.
Li and a female compatriot, Fan Beibei, were among about 50 runners from 20 countries who braved temperatures as low as -40 C to complete the 42-km event, which was postponed several times due to cracks in the ice.
Li is also one of a small but growing group of Chinese who have completed marathons on every continent, including Antarctica.


Despite the current enthusiasm, the Chinese have shown themselves to be somewhat fickle in terms of their motivation for traveling abroad. First, China's rising prosperity and its people's concern for health and fitness are unlikely to fade.
Third, and perhaps most important, are the young runners who aspire to take on international marathons. The running bug bit Zhang Yiming, 20, a junior at Renmin University of China's School of International Relations in Beijing, in December 2014. She runs 8 kilometers two to three times a week, which she says helps her deal with stress and keep calm. Zhang says she plans to run two international marathons a year, with New York, Boston and Munich at the top of her wish list.
At a historical study meeting of the ancient land and sea Silk Roads, the president told Communist Party of China Central Committee members, "The Belt and Road Initiative, though initiated by China, is not only about China. Xi proposed the initiative in 2013, envisioning a trade and infrastructure network that would connect Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient land and sea routes.
Analysts say the initiative covers at least 4.4 billion people in more than 60 countries, or 63 percent of the global population. Xi stressed the function of the market in promoting the initiative as well as the government's role in overall coordination.
He said that Chinese companies must be law-abiding and responsible entities in foreign countries while pursuing economic returns.
Li Guoqiang, deputy director of the Institute of Chinese Borderland Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told China Daily that the purpose of the study was to learn from the experiences and mistakes of the ancient Silk Road and to open leaders' minds to innovative ways to implement the initiative.
The president stressed that China cannot seek short-term successes and quick profits when promoting this initiative, said Li, who delivered a speech at the group study. What interested the president most was to take good consideration of relations between interests, enterprises and local and central governments, Li said. Zha Xiaogang, a researcher at the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, said taking care of other countries' interests as well as China's is crucial now that an increasing number of foreign countries have decided to cooperate in the initiative because they have come to understand China's visions and policies.
Zha said that Xi wants to balance the interests on three-levels: between China and the host country, between the different interest groups in the host country, and between China and other investors in the host country. Only by taking good care of all these interests can we make the initiative profitable and sustainable, Zha said. Despite some setbacks in the past few years, Sino-Japanese relations are improving, though they are still fragile, the premier said.

Four times since September, he had received a treatment that uses cells generated by a patient's own immune system to kill cancer cells.
The system, under which an advertiser pays a search engine for each time an ad is clicked, has long been a major source of revenue for Baidu.
He said the immunotherapy treatment at the Beijing hospital cost the family more than 200,000 yuan ($31,000), most of which was borrowed from friends and relatives. In November 2008, State-owned CCTV reported that Baidu sold priority placement for certain key medical terms to fake hospitals and unlicensed medicine suppliers. They gave false information to the disadvantaged patient and conducted ineffective treatment for higher profits, which is immoral and even against the law.
Baidu could utilize technology to combine a business credit system for supervision and give updates for companies based on consumer comments. Unlike a real-world currency such as the US dollar or the euro, it has no central bank and is not backed by any government. Advocates say this makes it an efficient alternative to traditional currencies, because it is not subject to the whims of a state that may wish to devalue its money to inflate away debt.

Meanwhile, China is implementing its $46 billion plan for a China-Pakistan economic corridor.

Due to both his record and his ferocity, Rockind gained the moniker, "the Rockweiler."

Many of them are quite knowledgeable, yet their expert opinions are not what I usually get from their social media posts.
With traditional media you can catch a glimpse in your peripheral vision of the pages next to what you target.
Often it sounds like everyone is freely expressing themselves, but a careful calibration of the pitch is at work, with or without a moderator. But it can also be overwhelmed by office politics - or shall I say saloon politics?- where people do not speak their minds, but rather seek to curry favor.
Well-off, fitness-focused Chinese are now more interested in snapping sweaty selfies at international marathons, report Matt Prichard, Yan Dongjie and Yu Yilei in Beijing and Wang Mingjie in London.

People from different countries did the same, and we stood close to each other to keep warm.
