 Zhu also was twice denied single-entry visas to the US.

“This shows how the US is trying to block normal social exchanges bet

ween the two countries, an important channel for mutual understanding and trust,” Zhu said.

Besides scholars in social sciences, the US also began last year to make it harder for Chinese graduate students to get visas if they stud

y in “sensitive research fields”. It warned biomedical researchers at US universities to beware of “Chinese spies

trying to steal information from their laboratories”, according to The New York Times report.

Jon Taylor, a professor of political science of the University o

f St. Thomas in Houston, said the decision is “both absurd and exceedingly shortsighted”.

“These scholars and researchers are social scientists with a long history of interactin

g with their American counterparts as well policymakers in both countries,” he said.

“They are scholars teaching and researching what I teach and research. What are they going to steal?”

yers do need their staff to work extra hours to meet pro

 deadlines or fulfill other tasks, they can ask them to work overtime – but not than 36 hours a month and only after consulti

ng and reaching an agreement with the labor union and the workers. More important, empl

oyers have to pay at least 1.5 times the usual salary to the employees for overtime work.

This is to protect the rights, interests and health of the workers.

Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba Group, has added fuel to the debate, by saying that empl

oyees who get the “opportunity” to work according the “996” schedule are the luc

ky ones, because in many companies employees don’t get the chance to work long hours.

But the fact is, if employers do not meet the two essential requiremen

ts to make employees work overtime – consulting wo

rkers and restricting the amount of extra work – and force the “996” schedule o

n their workers and make them work for more than 60 hours a week, they violate the Labor Law.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said Saturday that it w

was “extremely unlikely” any of the 27 countries would veto a delay.

AP”If one country was to veto an extension and, as a result, impose hardship on us, real problems for the Dutch and Belgians

and French as neighboring countries (to the UK)…they wouldn’t be forgiven for it,” he told Ireland’s RTE radio.

magnitude earthquake at a depth of 17 kilometers was detected at 1:25 pm on Sund

ay in Beijing’s Haidian district, according to the China Earthquake Networks Center.

Two earthquake experts said the minor quake was a normal activity in the earth’s crust caused by chan

ges in crustal stress, and there is no need for the public to panic, according to a report on huanqiu.com.

“It is a normal and isolated event,” said Guo Xun, dean of the Civil Engineering School at the Institute of Disaster Prevention.

“As Beijing is at the junction of the earthquake zones of Shanxi province, the Hebei Plain

and Yanshan Mountain, the city will experience one to two earthquakes at around magnitude-3 degree ev

ery year, according to past experience,” Sun Shihong, a researcher at the China Earthquake Networks Center, added.

Moreover, “green travel”, that is, maximum use of public

Currently, all special purpose local government bonds are

domestically rated “AAA”, the safest level. The sale to individual investors is mainly of project-link

ed special-purpose bonds, a type of local government bond vigorously promoted by the government in re

cent years. The cash flows generated from the underlying projects will be used as the primary repayment sources.

In China, there are two types of local government bonds: general bonds and special purpose bonds. According to the country’s 2019 budget repor

t, which was approved by the top legislature earlier this month, the budgeted deficit for local governments is 930 billion yuan, up 100 billi

on yuan compared with 2018, and this fund gap will be supplemented by general bonds.

In the meantime, 2.15 trillion yuan of special purpose bonds will be issued to support la

rge infrastructure projects, such as shantytown renovation projects and railways, said the ministry.

Letting individual buyers invest in local government bonds is a way to narrow the government’s financin

g gap, said Hu Yijian, a tax professor at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. The gap is expected to expand, as policym

akers decided to cut about 2 trillion yuan in taxes and fees this year while at the same time increase spending on investment.

We don’t know” what Kim will decide to do in the future and

  that any decision to resume such testing may “very much be his decision, and his decision alone,” Biegun said. He also noted that Trump has “made clear” how disap

pointed he would be if testing resumed. A senior US defense official told CNN Monday that the commercial sate

llite imagery doesn’t show anything that raises imminent alarm for the US at this time.

  North Korea acknowledged for the first time last Friday that the Hanoi summit ended “unexp

ectedly without an agreement.” Despite previously painting the Trump-Kim summit in Vietnam in a posi

tive light, state news agency KCNA said the meeting hadn’t gone as well as expected.

  The US had hoped the summit would demonstrate the success of Trump’s diplomatic gamble with North Korea, but instead

the meeting ended with no joint agreement, after Kim demanded all US sanctions be lifted on his country.

  ”Sometimes you have to walk,” Trump said during a news conference followin

g the conclusion of the talks, which broke up earlier than planned. “This was just one of those times.”

  CNN’s Jamie Crawford and Barbara Starr contributed to this report.

An additional report should be produced within three

months on how the petition has been processed, according to the SPP.

Prosecuting authorities have been treating the protection of human rights as being as important as fighting crime, Zhang said.

“Our work is based on facts and laws as well as the principle of ‘no one is let off, no one is wronged’,” he said.

Last year, prosecutors turned down police requests to formally arrest

168,458 people and dropped charges against 34,398 others — up by 15.9 percent and 14.1

percent year-on-year — because of insufficient evidence or because their actions did not constitute a crime.

“Even one wrongful case is too much,” Zhang said, adding that prosecutors will make consist

ent efforts to prevent wrongful cases and make timely rectification once such a case is detected.

“We should be responsible to the law, history and the people,” he said.

Iranian human rights lawyer sentenced to 38 years in prison, her

  Prominent Iranian human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh has been sentenced to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes, according to her family.
