The corn kernels burst out even in the cornstalk, just like

 popcorn,” said Liu Yueming, a technician in the promotion of scientific cultivation i

n the province. “It felt like the surface temperature was as high as 60 C. It’s a catastrophe.”

He said that some springs in a village called Haikou had drie

d up and the villagers didn’t have enough drinking water. “The village has 29 small water res

ervoirs, however, 14 of them have been used up so far. The drought is beyond imagination.”

“The villagers are doing everything they can to have enough drinki

ng water and then to also save as much as possible for their crops,” he added.

The region is also at greater risk of forest fires because of the high temperatures and low humidity.

The Yunnan Meteorological Bureau warned the public on May 13 about more dry

A key task of the campaign is to complete a survey of the threat of dust pois

oning, covering industries including mining, metallurgy and building materials by the end

of 2020, and to hold companies accountable for preventing the hazard, a commission document said.

The campaign also aims to have employers who generate large amounts of dust suspend their businesses and over

haul working conditions, and will ask local authorities to shut down those that cannot improve.

The campaign aims for more rigorous inspections of high-dust employers and to punish those who violate laws and regula

tions. It will also urge employers to sign contracts with their employees and join occupational injury insurance.

Often these pictures do not represent how these indivi

duals look in real life without the posing, the filters, the photoshopping and the professional hair and make-up,” Martz said.

Pan, the Renmin University researcher, also believes that pi

ctures shared frequently on social media impose peer pressure on women.

“If people around you look thin on WeChat Moments, you are inevi

tably anxious to fit the general profile of having the ‘right look’,” she said.

Articles have also gone viral in summer on WeChat Moments, with sensational headlines such as “Good-looking girls never

weigh more than 50 kilograms” or “If you don’t lose weight in May, you will cry out loud in June”.

Shen Zijiao, a psychological consultant at Beijing Normal University, said: “Women don’t know what kind of beauty is best for th

em; they just thumb through their phone screens and get the notions of ‘being slender’ consciously or uncons

ciously. They always worry if their bodies are inconsistent with the so-called perfect body shape.”

ut a careful survey by James Laurenceson, of the Austr

alia-China Relations Institute at the University of Technology Sydney, of media stori

Anti-China media stories focus on large campaign donatio

After 9/11, the US surveillance became more intensif

fied. Shortly after the attack, the US government introduced the Patriot Act, the Accuracy Act and

the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which formed a comprehensive intelligence surv

eillance network. According to a survey by Privacy International in 2007 covering 47 countries, the United States ran

ked first in the monitoring index. But the United States didn’t stop there. In 2013, Edward Snowden, a technical an

alyst at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), exposed the Prism program. In this seven-year top-secret electronic sur

veillance, monitored individuals include non-Americans who use related company services, or any US citizen who co

mmunicates with foreigners, including email, video and voice conversations, and social network details, and so on, can be descr

ibed as large-scale indiscriminate monitoring. Surveillance states were finally formed.

The situation is very much like the ceiling of a roo

m in which airborne particulate matter is present. The lower the ceilin

g is, the higher the density of pollutants which then mix with the cleaner air.

With a low mixing layer, Taihang mountain range to the west and the Yanshan mountai

n range to the north serve as walls that form a semi-closed “room” in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei cluster.

The high level of emissions is the major reason for air pollution in th

e greater Beijing area, and meteorological conditions also play a key role as an exte

rnal factor, said Xu Xiangde, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences.

Zhang Xiaoye, Xu’s colleague, said the “marked effect” of continuous pollutant accu

mulation on meteorological conditions could make overall pollution even worse.

“After the accumulation reaches a certain level, it will further wor

sen the meteorological conditions, which then will further affect air quality, causing explosive

The area burnt by the fire is estimated to be 5 to 10

 hectares, spreading due to windy weather.

The forest fire first broke out at around 6 pm on March 30 at a remote spot in the mountains at

an altitude of over 3,700 meters in Muli County. Local authorities dispatched more than 600 people to put out the

blaze. After engulfing about 15 hectares of forest, the blaze was initially extinguished Tuesday.

A lightning strike has been confirmed as the cause of the fire, local authorities said earlier.

The restarting of the fire was caused by strong wind in the area, sources said.

China’s health and education authorities pledged to work together to control child myopia on April 3.

Education departments will supervise schools to take concrete measures and eval

The State Council, China’s cabinet, said Wednesday it was necessary to amend laws and sup

porting regulations and policies to ensure the implementation of the foreign investment law.

Draft amendments for administrative licensing law, trademark law, construction law a

nd electronic signature law were passed Wednesday at a State Council executive meeting presided over by Premier Li Keqiang.

It was also decided at the meeting to submit the draft amendments to the Standing Committee of th

e National People’s Congress, China’s top legislature, for deliberation, according to a statement after the meeting.

Suggestions for revisions include adding the principle of “non-discrimination” in administrative licensi

marks, and cutting approval time for applications for qualified construction permits.

Hainan offers housing incentives to attract talenting

Hainan is offering housing incentives to attract talent to the tropical isla

nd province, where the country’s 12th free trade zone-its largest-is being created.

A notice from the provincial government on Friday said the employ

ees of companies that move their headquarters to the island will enjoy the same housing polici

es and credit support as locals when buying a house, even though they don’t have household registration in Hainan.

The supplementary measure, which is intended to address problems of new em

ployees settling in the Hainan FTZ, will improve the business environment, attract investo

rs, promote opening-up and development of headquarters, and optimize the living environment, local officials said.

In April last year, after the central government said Hainan would become a pilot free trade zone, the island announ

ced it would attract 1 million skilled workers. To accomplish that, it has adopted measures to support free hou

sing for topnotch personnel, child education, spousal employment, medical insurance and car purchases.
