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.

The research was done by scientists from Tsinghua Un

niversity and the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Genetics and Development Biology. Their findings were published in the journal Science on Friday.

About 20 years ago, scientists discovered that plants, like animals, have robust immune sys

tems that can protect them from pathogens including viruses, fungi, bacteria and parasites.

Plants also have a unique “lure and catch” immune response to de

al with pathogens that have breached their cellular defense, but exactly how this work

ed remained unknown, said Zhou Jianmin, a researcher at the institute and one of the main scientists behind the study.

To probe this mystery, Zhou and his team investigated a protein called AvrAC, which is pro

duced by a bacterial pathogen that causes black rot on cabbage. The bacterium injects AvrAC int

o plant cells, where it acts as a “biochemical weapon” weakening the plant’s immune system.

They discovered that some plants have evolved to carry a resistance protein called ZAR1 that can detect bacterial prot

eins like AvrAC. These plants use special proteins as “bait” and trick the bacterial protein into attacking them inst

ead. While the bait is being attacked, ZAR1 is activated to form a multiprotein structure called resistosome, Zhou said.

China and Italy complement each other in terms of resou

 resource endowment, with trade cooperation being the cornerstone of their relationship. Belt and Road projects have already helped expand the shipping trade

in the Mediterranean region, creating unprecedented development opportunities for Italy’s major ports.

And now that Beijing and Rome have signed a MoU on the Belt and Road Initiative, the two sides can establish better con

nectivity in order to promote globalization and free trade. The MoU also suggests that even developed coun

tries have started to accept the BRI as a connectivity and economic development initiative.

The MoU could also be an antidote to the rising wave of unilateralism

and trade protectionism in some regions, as more developed economies could now join the BRI.

China is now one of the largest cooperative partners of Italy i

n terms of imports and exports. As of November 2018, the bilateral trade volume had reac

hed $48.25 billion, more than the total for the whole of 2017, making Italy China’s ninth-largest export des

Sales of anti-hair loss products, sleeping pills and aids show market revival

Chinese born in the 1990s, long troubled by hectic lifestyles marked by working till late, heavy

workload and career-related pressures, have a new problem to deal with: hair loss.

But certain manufacturers are sensing a big business opportunity

as products that promise to cure or prevent hair loss are seeing something of a revival.

Last year, among consumers who bought hair care and hair growth products on e-commerce platforms of Alib

aba Group Holding Ltd, 36 percent were born after 1990, and more than 38 percent were born between 1980 and 1990.

Middle-aged and senior consumers showed lower-than-expected demand for hair c

are products, according to a report by AliHealth, the health and medicine unit of Alibaba Group.
