The two drafts are under their third readings at the on

going session of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress.

The emphasis on objectivity and impartiality was suggested after the drafts’ se

cond readings, as legal experts pointed to the importance of procurators to objectively collect evidence.

The new drafts also stipulate tighter supervision over judges and procurators and give th

em more responsibilities such as keeping business secrets and personal privacy infor

mation. There will be legal consequences if they fail to do so, according to the drafts.

Vietnamese truck enters China via the Second Beilun River

The bridge will greatly alleviate traffic burden on the First Beilun River Bridge three kilomet

ers away, which was previously the only means of shipping personnel and cargo to or from Dongxing Checkpoint.

Statistics from immigration authorities show that 12.19 million people and 47,056 vehicles passed over the old bridge in 2018, far beyond its maximum capacity.

The new bridge is now designated for freight vehicles, while the First Be

ilun River Bridge is reserved for personnel. This could save 30 minutes or more in custo

ms clearance time for each consignment, according to Huang Xiong, deputy chief of Dongxing Customs.

dom and several other European countries from joining the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank by ac

cusing, without any basis, the then newly established bank of possible low environmental and governance standards.

The real reason, according to former US treasury secretary Larry Summers, was that the Obama adm

inistration could not secure any funding from the Republican-controlled Congress to join the AIIB. And to s

ave itself from embarrassment, the US administration tried to prevent European countries from joining the bank.

This environment created a black market in which bro

  okers will offer to dispose of waste at below the market rate.

  Brokers charge between $130 and $170 to dump a ton of waste in a sparsely

populated part of the country, says Lee, Kim’s former boss.

  Not only can this be a lucrative source of income, the fines for illegal

dumping are only about $3,000, Lee says.

  Lee estimates that Kim pocketed upwards of $22 million this way, judging by the extra trash that was found at his site.

  A new dumping ground

  Since the China ban, South Korea has been using Southeast Asia as a

dumping ground for much of its non-recyclable waste.

  The country now exports 10 times more waste to the Philippines and

almost 30 times mor

e to Thailand than it did before Beijing’s ban. But not all the waste sent abroad is

disposed of legally.

Madrazo said in the next 20 years, there will be more innovative

technologies to support farmers to practice sustainable agricultural production.

“The combining chance of advanced breeding technologies that makes the seeds smarter and

more productive, together with modern crop protection products that are friendlier to the envir

onment, coupled with biological technologies that really helps explore the power of microorganisms in the soil, w

ith digital tools as integrators, you bring all of these together.”

In June 2018, Bayer completed its acquisition of Monsanto, a US seeds and agrochemic

als company, and became the world’s largest supplier of seeds and agricultural chemicals.

“We are a leader of agriculture,” Madrazo said, “when you look

at our new, integrated company there are three specific aspects that excite us: First one is our

top innovation ability; Second one is leading the digital transformation in agriculture; and the third one is we have a re

al opportunity to shape sustainability for the benefit of farmers, consumers and our planet.”

When he addressed the UN General Assembly in 2018

Trump claimed his administration had achieved “more than almost any administration in the history of the country” — and was met with open laughter.


National security adviser John Bolton, a former ambassador to the UN under President George W. Bush, was openly hosti

le toward the UN during his 2005 to 2006 tenure. The Trump administration has cut US contributions to the UN,

pulled out of several of UN organizations and opposed core UN-backed initiatives in

recent years, including the Paris Agreement on climate and the Iran nuclear deal.

Trump had wanted a woman to lead the US delegation at the United Nations, so

urces have told CNN. His original pick, Nauert, bowed out after it came to light tha

t she had employed a nanny who was legally present in the US, but wasn’t legally permitted to work.

The post, which had been a Cabinet level position under Haley, is widely expected to be downgraded.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had told aides he wanted the post downgra

ded after Haley leaves, an official familiar with his remark has told CNN. And Bolt

on has also been said to want the role downgraded, according to people familiar with his thinking.

The shift means Craft would wield less clout than her predecessor, both at the UN and within the administration, and as a r

esult, would pose nowhere near the challenge to Bolton or Pompeo.

In addition, Wisconsin has seen a tightening labor market in t

the last few years, with the unemployment rate steadily registering 3 percent or lower in nin

e months, which made it difficult for companies to look for workers, let alone skilled ones or engineers.

Kurt Bauer, president and CEO of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, s

aid that the association has about 3,800 members, half of which are m

anufacturing companies. Around 80 percent of the members have seen a labor shortage in one way or another.

Ian Robertson, dean of the University of Wisconsin-Madison college of Engineering, said the college has 800 gr

aduates every year. They have about 6,000 job opportunities to choose from, most of which are outside of the state.

To meet the demand for engineers, the college plans to expand their enrollment from around 4,500 t

o 5,200 in the next few years. But after graduation, how many of the students will be hired by Foxconn is hard to say.

Robertson said many companies in need of engineers tend to build long-term relationships wit

h the university by establishing labs and offering internships. “Foxconn is just one of them,” he said.
