Yangtze bridge stands the test of timespecial meaning

In the more than three months since it reopened to the public after repairs, more th

an 70,000 vehicles a day on average have crossed the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge in Jiangsu province.

The number of vehicles traversing the bridge, which reopened in December, is just half that for each of the other three structures spanning t

he river in Nanjing, while Line 3 of the city’s subway system carries more than 800,000 people across the river every day.

But despite its relatively meeker traffic flows, people from across the country visit Nan

jing just to see the bridge, especially during holidays. For many, it represents far more than just a river crossing.

For years, it has been featured on a variety of posters and in school textbooks.

Many people have had their pictures taken at photo studios that use images of the bridge as backdrops.

Hotels, cinemas and daily necessities have been named after it. Parents have even named their chi

ldren after the bridge, with some of those born in the 1960s and 1970s being called “Yangtze”, “Bridge” or “Pier” in Chinese.

Top 10 Chinese cities with the most job opportunitie

Guangzhou in South China’s Guangdong province provides the most

job opportunities in enterprises in the first quarter of this year, a report said.

With development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greate

r Bay Area set to begin, Guangzhou witnessed 24.95 percent year-on-year growth in recrui

tment demand in Q1, according to the report by 58 Tongcheng Recruitment Research Institute.

First-tier cities including Beijing and Shanghai continue to provide the largest job markets i

n China, while new first-tier cities such as Chengdu in Southwest China’s Sichuan province and Hangzhou in E

ast China’s Zhejiang province show strong momentum in recruitment demand growth.

With an average monthly wage of 9,723 yuan ($1,447.64), Shanghai, China’s financial center, pays the highest salaries in the co

untry, followed by Hangzhou with an average of 8,684 yuan, up 25.77 percent year-on-year — the highest growth rate.

Let’s take a look at which Chinese cities provide the most job opportunities.

The male turtle, thought to be more than 100 years

old, has poor sperm motility and its genitals were damaged. Since it could not naturally impr

egnate the female, experts had undertaken four insemination procedures since 2015.

“It’s a disastrous loss for the protection of the species,” said Liu Nonglin, chief engineer of the Chinese Association of Zoolog

ical Gardens. “The experts had researched former insemination surgeries, consulted colleagues and made the best

surgery and rescue plan. The team even experimented on three male and two female large-sized Asian turtles usi

ng the same surgical procedures. But the tragedy happened even though the surgery was well planned.”

More than 1 meter in length and weighing more than 100 kilograms, Yangtze giant softshell turtles are the world’s largest freshw

ater turtles. Besides the one male left in China, two other animals, whose sex is unknown, have been observed in the wild in Vietnam.

“Artificial insemination surgery for the turtle requires procedures

such as anesthesia, blood sampling and sperm extraction,” Wen Cheng, a turtle expert with

International Union for Conservation of Nature, was quoted by Lifeweek.com.cn as saying.

The turtles’ circadian rhythm is slower than a mamm

mal’s, which means that the signs of trouble during the procedure will not be as obvious as

with mammals. It is easier to cause irreversible damage if an unexpected situation is encountered.”

“It’s obvious that their near-extinction was caused by huma

ns,” he said. “We haven’t done the basic work of researching the turtles’ biological inf

ormation, behaviors and genetics. The knowledge we have is too limited to save the species.”

Save your look of judgment for anyone blocking your path as you try to walk past them on an

escalator in Shanghai. The new safety notices posted in every metro station in the city tell you to stand still.

The notice also warns people against playing, leaning and faci

ng the wrong way, as well as carrying heavy goods or trolleys on escalators.

While standing on the right and walking on the left has been the norm, the city has changed t

his etiquette to “no walking” for the safety of commuters and the proper functioning of escalators.

Slower rise in Chinese studying overseas pose for phot

The number of Chinese studying abroad grew at a slower rate in 2018 compared with 2017, as more students have come to realize

that overseas study does not necessarily guarantee a well-paid job on foreign shores, or back home, education experts said.

In 2018, 662,100 Chinese went abroad to study, up 8.83 percent from a year earlier, w

hile the growth rate was 11.7 percent in 2017, according to the Ministry of Education.

Ran Wei, vice-president of New Channel International Education

Group, said that while one should not read too much into the lower growth rate last year because of the la

rge base in 2017, the major motivation for Chinese students going abroad seems to be evolving.

The main driver now for enrolling in offshore schools is to make re

sumes more attractive for job searches back in China rather than seeking a new life abroad.

Speaking of the Chinese economy, Liu said, China is

 accelerating its transition from high-speed growth to high-quality develo

pment, as its economic structure continues to upgrade, and new momentum sustains remarkable growth.

China has adopted a proactive fiscal policy this year with greater intensity and enhanced efficiency, rolling out substa

ntial tax cuts and fee reductions, and its economic growth in the first quarter has gotten off to a good start, Liu said.

The minister said his country will continue to significantly relax ma

rket access, enhance the protection of intellectual property rights, and carry out larg

er-scale tax cuts and fee reductions, so as to create a more attractive investment and business environment.

On the sidelines of the Development Committee meeting, Liu met with David Malpass, the new World Bank president, as scheduled.

A capacity building platform designed for community-level healthcar

e services was officially launched on Apr 15 by the National Health Commission (NHC).

The report delivered at the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China points ou

t that community-level healthcare services should be improved and the work of general practitioners strengthened.

The NHC launched a capacity building and training program for community level talents i

Talent team building is the key component to enhancing commu

Second minor earthquake in a week detected in Beijing

magnitude earthquake at a depth of 19 kilometers was detected at 12:47pm on Sunday

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

It is the second earthquake in a week that occurred in the capital, following a 2.9-magnitude earthquake in Beijing’s Haidian district last Sunday.

Earthquake experts said minor quakes are normal in the area, as Beijing is located in the earth’s rift zone. There is no need for worry.

Since Beijing is at the junction of the earthquake zone of Shanxi province, the North China Plai

n and Yanshan Mountain, it’s normal for the capital to experience small quakes at a magnitude of two to thre

e, said Sun Shihong, a researcher at the China Earthquake Networks Center, as quoted by Beijing News.

“There will be no major impact on those living or working in the capital,” he said.

Seven rift belts are scattered through the plains in Beijing, mostly lyin

g from the northeast to the southwest. Among those rift belts, active ones are more likely to trigger quakes.
