The national landmark has received thousands of visitors

from China and overseas since it opened in 1968. Leaders from more than 70 countries and over 600 delegations from 150 nations have visited it.

During the three days it reopened to the public before taking road traffic in December, the bridge had more than 200,000 visitors.

The 4,589-meter-long structure reopened after 27 months of repairs. As China’s first home-designed road and rail truss bridge, it has been p

raised and loved by many. A truss bridge is one whose load-bearing superstructure is composed of connected elements forming triangular units.

Liu Yong, 63, a retired teacher from Nanjing, said he was in elementary school when the bridge first op

ened. Without telling his parents and teachers, he and his classmates walked more than 10 kilometers to see it.

“It was the most magnificent structure I had ever seen. When our relatives visited Nanjing, we

took them to see the bridge instead of visiting other well-known places of interest,” Liu said.

Zhou Lei, who lives in a residential community near the bridge, said that when he was an elementary school student in Ya

ncheng, Jiangsu, his father promised him that he would take him to see the bridge if he had high scores in his final exam.

The successful viewing of the dynamic structure

 enable us to see clearly which exact position the hormone goes into

the receptor as well as the corresponding reactions happening to the downstream signaling

proteins and the surroundings,” said Zhao Lihua, one of the leading researchers on the team and an associat

e professor from the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

“It will allow scientists to screen small-molecule compounds tha

t fit this exact position. If this succeeds, researchers can continue to develop oral drugs,” she said.

A paper about the study conducted by CAS’ Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica in

collaboration with researchers from Zhejiang University School of Basic Medical Sciences and University of Pittsbu

rgh School of Medicine was published on the website of United States-based journal Science on Friday.

Holmwood adds that foreign literature is no longer “just

Scandinavian crime novels” for British readers. Among the different strands that have cont

ributed to such changes, one is that “fantasy, epic historical romances as well as science

fiction are easier genres” to introduce ideas from another culture.

“People are looking for something new, and Chinese sci-fi an

d wuxia (martial arts) fantasy are stepping into this void,” she says.

Gigi Chang, a freelance translator in Shanghai, released Condor Heroes’s second book, A Bond Un

done, in January. The Daily Mail in Britain calls it “a glorious, involving, kinetic epic”.

Chang says besides the changing market, where translated wor

ks are becoming more prominent, the quality of Jin Yong’s wr

ting, as well as the series’ experienced publisher, MacLehose Pres

s, are factors that have led to its popularity in Britain.

Legal experts called for China to protect juveniles through cybersecurity legislation a

nd redoubled efforts against school bullying after several cases aroused public outrage and concern.

Fang Yan, a lawyer from Shaanxi province, said that it’s good to see the nation adding to the protectio

n of juveniles in the past few years, “but in some new aspects, such as cyberspace, the protection is far from enough”.

At the end of 2018, China had 829 million netizens, of whom almost 20 percent w

ere under the age of 18, according to the China Internet Network Information Center.

Another report released by the center in March said that 15.6 percent of juven

iles had experienced disturbances, insults or privacy leaks online, while 30.3 percent said

they had been exposed to pornography, gambling or drugs in cyberspace.

In 2017, the fertility rate in the US hit a historic low, dat

a published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last year shows.

The number of births in the US dropped by 2 percent between 2016

and 2017, to 60.2 births per 1,000 women ages 15 to 44. It’s the lowest the rate has been in 30 years.

“Fertility rates are falling, and lifelong childlessness is on the rise, bu

t most women continue to have at least one child, even if they do not marry,” Coontz said.

She added that obviously it’s hard to raise a child on one’s ow

n, without a partner or a supportive kinship group, and it’s especially difficult when money and time are scarce.

“But this is an issue that societies have to face head-on instead of wishing it would go awa

y,” she said. “Marriage-promotion efforts have been singularly ineffective all around the world where they have been tried.”

Coontz said it’s important that government provides a safety net for all children.

He also expressed appreciation for Xi’s decision to cr

crack down on fentanyl, saying that it is of great importa

 

nce to Americans, and for the anti-drug cooperation between China and the US.

Starting next month, China will add fentanyl-related substances to a supplementary list of controlled narcoti

cs and psychotropic substances used for nonmedical purposes, authorities said on Monday.

Trump also said that a trade deal with China is good for both countries and the world as well.

“A trade deal between the two economic giants would help alleviate global gro

wth concerns, provide a much-needed global confidence boost and lift markets,” Gre

gory Daco, chief US economist at Oxford Economics, said in a report on Thursday, according to The Associated Press.

Ofo denies bankruptcy, claims all is well Ofo has denied

Chinese startup Ofo has denied it is bankrupt, and claimed all is w

ell at the bike-sharing company in a statement released on Tuesday.

According to media reports, Beijing Baikeluoke Technology Co, one of Ofo’s operat

ors, was involved in a bankruptcy case on March 25, listed on the national bankruptcy disclosure platform.

Ofo, however, insists it is not bankrupt, saying that its debt-related litigation and negotiations are still underway.

The company has been suffering financial problems for the past few m

onths, with tens of millions of users waiting for refunds since the second half of last year.

To compound matters for the company, unpaid bills resulted in several lawsuits in the same period.

Xuan Changneng, deputy head of the State Administration of

 Foreign Exchange, said, “China has ample room to maneuver and take measures toward deleveraging.”

That conclusion is based on the debt structure and interest rate level, he said.

“When we’re talking about deleveraging and maintaining stable growth, I think the focus for seve

ral years has been on quality growth, not just any growth,” he said.Chinese President Xi Jinping met wit

h New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern Monday in Beijing. They agreed to continuously enrich the China-New

Zealand comprehensive strategic partnership based on the principles of mutual trust and mutual benefit.his year’s Government Work Report said th

at “major progress was made in boosting the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region”. In the years since t

he central government put forward the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei coordinated development plan, local authorities have taken a series of me

asures, including working on key issues such as top design, to help shift Beijing’s noncapital functions to nei

ghboring locations, integrating the region’s transport network and better strengthening environmental protection.

In the latest case, which was discovered on March 12 in

Linshui county of Guang’an, Sichuan province, a transport truck carrying 150

 pigs, nine of them dead, was seized at a toll station.

It was the second case in March after an outbreak that killed 20 pigs on a

breeding farm in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region was confirmed on March 7.

The next step, Yu said, is to maintain the momentum of the ongoing disease preven

tion and control measures and strengthen oversight over the slaughtering sector.

On Friday, the ministry launched checks on slaughterhouses nationwide and

ordered them to carry out self-inspections.

Yu stressed the need to secure supplies of live pigs and pork products.

The domestic output of live pigs in China has been declining since the second half of last year beca

use of the disease, according to Yang Hanchun, a professor at the College of

Veterinary Medicine of China Agricultural University.

He said China’s capital controls will continue to be a f

factor in Chinese outbound investments in 2018. “If you are a company where real estate and property development is your ma

in line of business I think you will have a better chance of getting your foreign investment approved,” he said.

Despite the decline in Chinese investment, the US commercial real estate markets weathered the loss of capi

tal well. Because New York and San Francisco receive two-thirds of every Chinese investment dollar according to the

report, the effect of the falloff was limited, according to Barry Hersh, a real estate professor at New York University.

Overall, China fell to third in total foreign investment in American real estate behind Cana

da and Singapore, according to the report. Bitner said other sources of capital stepped in to fill the void. “Capital fro

m Canada, Singapore, Japan and South Korea is coming into the US market,” he said.
