Folorunsho Amsat, a journalist, told Xinhua one of the

 of the polls postponement is that it would cause many voters to be depressed and the country might record a low turnout of electorates when the election eventually holds.

“The momentum is dying. I hope it’s not dead in one week,” he said.

According to the electoral chief, shifting the polls was “a difficult decision for the Commission to take.”

For more than seven hours, the electoral chief and the 12 nation

al commissioners of the INEC were in a closed-door meeting on Friday night.

The elections were supposed to hold at 119,973 polling units across the country while collation of res

ults was to take place in 8,809 registration areas or wards, 774 local government areas in 36 states and the capital Abuja.

Sources had hinted a possible postponement of the election due to logistic challenges in some parts of the country.

The official News Agency of Nigeria, citing official sources in the north-central state of Niger

had reported that ballot papers for two of the state’s three senatorial districts were missing as of Friday evening.

hile Beijing promises to buy more American goods and to ex

pand market access to US firms, Washington should move forward on some issues, such as tightened export controls to China,” Mei added.

Besides the purchase of more US soybeans, there is more room to buy additional ‘

’US goods such as energy products, aircraft and automobiles as part of efforts to reduce the US trade deficit with China.

More containment

Notwithstanding the good momentum of trade talks, the US seems to be hastening its offensive against China in various sectors.

In a Saturday article, CNN said US intelligence warned that China was using “student spies” to steal secrets from the US.

Unnamed lawmakers and intelligence officials were quoted as saying that the Chinese are

“notorious” for their patriotism and nationalism that could allegedly “coerce them into carrying out acts of espionage.”

On Friday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the US Energy Department said it woul

d ban its scientists and employees from participating in talent-recruitment programs sponsored by China and other countries.

The department oversees 17 national laboratories conducting advanced resear

ch in such areas as nuclear physics and supercomputing.

This is not the first time US officials have accused Chinese students of espionage, while Chine

se students, based on official US data, accounted for over 30 percent of the country’s international students in 2018.

Brazil lowers exports forecast to China following recovery of

Brazil, the largest soybean producer in Latin America, lowered its exports expectati

ons to China following China-US trade talks that have brought a soybeans deal back to the table.

After the latest trade talks concluded on a positive note, China agreed to purchase more agricultural products from the US, particu

larly of soybeans, which US President Donald Trump described as a “tremendous purchase.”

Amid strong signals from the resumption of the China-US soybeans trade, Brazil lowered its forecast for exports to China in

2019, an industry representative from the South American country told the Global Times on Saturday.

“This development lowered our expectations for Brazilian soybeans expo

rts to China compared to the previous year,” Daniel Furlan Amaral, chie

f-economist of Brazilian Association of Vegetable Oil Industries (ABIOVE), told the Global Times.

Brazil will export 70.1 million tons of soybeans in 2019, Abiove said in a release late Monday, down 3.8 million tons on its prev

Preventing stomach cancer in advanceecializes in the tr

The stomach is the first stop in the digestive tract before food and drink passes onwards

into the intestines. It is a muscular bean-shaped sack about the size of a fist that is situated at the top of the abdo

men. The cells of the stomach lining secrete acidic gastric juices, which mix with ingested food.

Stomach cancer is one of the top four most common cancers worldwide and is a significant

problem in China. The estimated five-year survival rate for stomach cancer is less than 30 percent. If diagnose

d at an early stage, the chances of being successfully cured are greatly improved, which is why early detection is very important.

Beijing United Family Hospital’s UK gastroenterologist Dr Neil Galletly talks more ab

out the disease and discusses ways people can prevent stomach cancer to keep our stomachs healthy.

How to reduce your risk of stomach cancer?

Cancer prevention – for any cancer – is about taking action to reduce the risk of developi

ng cancer. This usually means implementing changes to your diet or lifestyle. It can include avoiding and elimina

ting risk factors (ie. things known to increase the risk of cancer) and increasing exposure to protective factors (ie. thi

ngs known to reduce the risk of cancer).  Although avoiding risk factors and increasing protective factors does not guarantee that you will not get canc

er, it should lower your risk. Taking the following actions should reduce your risk of stomach cancer:

n be one of the factors. Stomach cancer, and a number of

, are more common above the age of 50. While most cases of stomach cancer occur without a family history but approximately 10 percent of cases are clustered within families.  So, it is importan

t to speak with your doctor if you have a family history of stomach cancer in a close family member or more than o

ne case in the same family.  A strong family history of lobular breast cancer may also increase your risks.

Statistics also show that men are roughly twice as likely as women to be diagnosed with stomach cancer. People with Type A b

lood have a slightly higher risk of stomach cancer compared with people with other blood groups. And people from

an East Asian background (Chinese, Japanese, Korean),  Pacific Islanders, Hispanics and blacks have an increased risk.

Those who have previous gastric surgery and pernic

ious anemia – anemia caused by low levels of Vitamin B12 – should also pay more attention to that.

Screening for stomach cancer

Cancer screening is a way of testing healthy people before they develop symptoms to help detect cancer at an early

stage. Unlike colon, breast and cervical cancer, very few countries (with the exception of Japan and South Korea) have

population screening programs for stomach cancer. If you have risk factors, speak to a gastroenterologist or your fa

mily doctor about whether or not you would benefit from regular endoscopic checks for stomach cancer screening.
