When Brenda Kazule returned to Zambia after completing her master’s degree at the Institute of South-South Cooperation and

Kazule, a traditional-affairs officer from Muchinga province, said the book — Xi Jinping: The Governance of China — is import

Since Xi Jinping was elected as general secretary of the CPC Central Committee in November 2012 and p上海419品茶微信

上海419The book is a collection of several dozen speeches and essays by Xi on a variety of topics. It interprets the concepts and prin

path, its domestic and foreign policies and responses to international concerns about the country.上海419品茶微信

The downgrade in the forecast was attributed to the negative impact of prolonged pr

Radicals breached ‘bottom line’ of law, spokeswoman says

Two organizations of the central government expressed strong indignation and condemnation on Wednesd上海419

ay over violent acts targeting mainland residents at Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the airport resumed operations on Wednesday after the High Court in the Hong Kong上海419品茶微信

Special Administrative Region issued an interim injunction banning unlawful obstruction of airport operations.

上海419The order, requested by Airport Authority Hong Kong, prohibits

any person from unlawfully and willfully obstructing and interfering with ope

rations at the airport, according to a statement issued by the authority on Wednesday morning.

The Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrativ上海419品茶微信

e Region and the State Council’s Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office responded to the violence at the airport.

Two mainland residents were illegally detained and beaten on Tuesday night by radical protesters who occupied and crip上海419

led the airport. The two are a Global Times reporter and a Shenzhen resident who was accused of being an undercover pol

ice officer from the mainland. After the assault, the two were taken to local hospitals for medical treatment.上海419品茶微信

“The atrocity has totally gone beyond the bottom line of a civilized society,

which is no different from terrorists’ acts,” the Liaison Office statement said.

The office pointed out that the protesters’ acts, including paralyzing operations of the airport and harassing passengers of var上海419

ious nationalities and ages, severely hurt others’ rights and damaged Hong Kong’s international reputation.

“This time the protesters have torn down their deceptive masks of ‘peace, rationality and nonviolence'”, the statement said.上海419品茶微信

The liaison office pledged that it will continue to stand behind relevant authoritie

s to safeguard the personal safety and legitimate rights of mainland residents in Hong Kong.

British adventurer com上海龙凤earlong Yangtze walk

A British explorer is claiming to be the first person to walk the length of the Yangtze River in China after enduring fr

eezing temperatures, blistering heat, and altitudes of more than 5,000 meters during his epic trek.上海龙凤品茶微信

Ash Dykes, from Old Colwyn in North Wales, finished the 6,437-kilometer jo

上海龙凤urney on Monday after he was delayed by a couple of days because of Typhoon Lekima.

The 28-year-old said he felt great after crossing the finish line in

Shanghai, where he was greeted by family, media, and Chinese supporters.上海龙凤品茶微信

“As soon as I was on the final stretch, people started to join and we sort of ran to the finish and popped the champagne,” Dykes said.

The expedition took two years to plan and 352 days to complete.

At the start of the trek, the source of the Yangtze River was difficult to上海龙凤

reach and four members of his team left the expedition before it began because of al

titude sickness. There were also fears over the possibility of bear and wolf attacks.

“One day, I was told by locals that a woman was killed by a pack of上海龙凤品茶微信

wolves and for the next two days we were followed by a pack of wolves, so that was very int

imidating,” Dykes said. “We thought bears would leave us alone but the locals told us otherwise … so we would try and shel上海龙凤

ter with the locals or, if I was in my tent, I wouldn’t get food out. We had to stay alert and focus.”

He said he wanted to use his journey to highlight conservation projects by partne上海龙凤品茶微信

The administration s上海后花园on the lunar day tha

t just ended, Yutu 2 and Chang’e 4’s lander, which has also entered a dormancy period, obtained a great deal of scientific data.

A lunar day equals 14 days on Earth, and a lunar night is the same length. During the lunar n上海后花园

ight, the temperature falls below minus 180 C, and there is no sunlight to provide power to the probe.

上海后花园Chang’e 4 was lifted atop a Long March 3B rocket in early December at the

Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan province to make the country’s fourt

h lunar exploration and the world’s first expedition to the moon’s far side, which never faces Earth.上海后花园女神会所

The probe made a soft landing on the far side on Jan 3 and then released Y

utu 2, the world’s seventh moon rover, and also the first to get to the far side and survey t

上海后花园he South Pole-Aitken basin, the largest and deepest known basin in the solar system.

The scientific tasks of the Chang’e 4 mission include low-frequency radio a

stronomical observation, surveying the terrain and landforms, and detecting the mine上海后花园女神会所

ral composition and shallow lunar surface structure, as well as measuring neutron radiation and neutral atoms.

上海后花园As no probe had landed on the far side before Chang’e 4, all scien

tific information obtained in the mission would be new, according to Zhang He, ex

ecutive director of the Chang’e 4 program at the China Academy of Space Technology.上海后花园女神会所

China’s next lunar probe, Chang’e 5, will weigh about 8.2 metric tons and will be the largest a

上海后花园nd heaviest lunar probe ever built by the country. It will consist of four components – orbiter, lander, ascender and

re-entry module. The probe will be sent by China’s largest carrier rocket, Long March 5, from the Wenchang Space Launch C

enter in the island province of Hainan in the near future. It will collect lunar samples and bring them back to Earth.上海后花园女神会所

If the Chang’e 5 mission succeeds, China will become the third nation to retrieve lunar samples, after the United States and Russia.
