anadian’s love of Chinese kung fu, medicine fuels fut

Haase first became interested in Chinese medicine when he was in Canada. After graduating from high sc

hool, he entered the Oshio College of Acupuncture & Herbology in Victoria. Haase’s teacher then was from Hunan.

“His medical skills are brilliant, but he is modest too. This g

ave me a very good first impression of China and Chinese medicine,” Haase said.

“He taught us a lot of interesting things about Hunan, like the great herbalist doctor Zhang Zhongjing. He also told me tha

t if I want to really understand Chinese medicine, I must go to China where it originated, so I came to Hunan.”

In order to learn Chinese medical theory, Haase studies Chinese medicine

books, most of which are written in classical Chinese. Haase’s solution is to ask st

udents to translate the classical Chinese into modern Chinese and then translate them into English.

No approaches to regional issues should resort to mili

tary blocs, nor should they undermine the interests of others,” Wei said.

He called out the United States for its military support to Taiwan and naval operations in the

South China Sea, saying they have undermined China’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity.

China resolutely follows the path of peaceful development and this commitment is ensh

China, Wei said. “If this is not convincing enough for some people, nothing will be.”

Moreover, China adopts a military strategy of “active defense”, with emphasis on self-defe

The Greens are one of the big winners in the elections (even beating Germ

any’s Social democrats into second place), and they will seek to impose strict conditions reg

arding climate change, the environment and human rights on future trade deals. This attitude will also make it dif

Although the nationalist and populist parties now have more seats, it does not mean they will form a united front in the EP. Th
