Contents regarding collective copyright managem

ent organizations, including stock image platforms, have been debatable and remain a key issue among lawmakers,” she said.

“I believe such copyright agencies will be regulated in the future version of the law after Visual

China’s incident, and our IP protection will also be further strengthened thanks to the case,” she added.

Different from many comments that criticized the company and its business, Chen sai

d it is “Okay” for stock image platforms to profit from selling images or filing copyright lawsuits.

“Proper commercial operations can help defend the rights of individual creators, as it is difficult a

nd costly for individuals to sift through seas of information and find out who infringes their rights,” she said. “Or su

ch platforms create a better environment for copyright owners to easily and effectively safeguard their rights.”

But she suggested the country set up a third-party to supervise

the platforms’ operation to prevent them from exercising the rights beyond the legal scope.

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.

Trump to attend 75th anniversary of Normandy landi

US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he will attend the ceremonies t

o be held in France later this year for commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings.

Trump made the remarks when asked by a World War II veteran at the Oval Office in the White House.

“I’ll be there,” he said.

The Normandy landings, an unexceptionally big military operation launched by the Allied troops, commence

d on June 6, 1944, breaking Nazi Germany’s grip on France and changing the course of history during the World War II.

Trump made a trip to France for the 100th anniversary commemorations of the end of World War I last November.

He has frequently criticized European members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization

for failing to meet the official annual defense spending target of 2 percent of gross domestic product set by the organization.

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.
