from others. They cannot directly affect any country’s worldwide current account balance. A count

ry that saves less than it invests will have to borrow foreign funds to import foreign goods to make up that difference.

There are two ways to reduce the US trade deficit. A serious recession would reduce investme

nt, but nobody advocates that as a strategy. The only other path is to change the US financial and gove

rnment system to encourage increased savings. China has almost nothing to do with it.

Ironically, the disputes between the US and China center around both nations’ legitimate desires to

protect some current low-skilled jobs, or at least to allow an easier transition to new jobs and industries.

US administration’s economic policy has rightly focused on the need to

retain jobs for working-class people in the US. And, China’s companies that export to the U

hinese sales of passenger vehicles, MPVs, SUVs and minivans in March dropped 12 percent on a yearly basis to 1.78 million units.

This is the 10th consecutive monthly decrease, according to the C

hina Passenger Car Association (CPCA), Changjiang Times reported.

The MPV sector saw the largest sales decline, 20.2 percent to 130,000 units in the pas

t month, while SUVs and sedans dropped 10.7 and 12 percent, respectively.

The decreases in 2019’s first quarter are mild compared with those at the end of the last year, CPCA said.

As the State-VI emission standards will be implemented from July 1 this

year, some Japanese brands have launched corresponding products ahead of their co

unterparts, and performed well in sales and consumer confidence, CPCA said.

“Automobile sales in North China, and those in the county and township level, are still weak,” the association added.

ons has voted against remaining in the EU and every version of leaving the EU,” tweeted James Cleverly, the Conservative Party’s deputy chairman.

Nevertheless, some proposals fared better than May’s deal had done two weeks ago, and parlia

ment was due to hold more indicative votes on Monday after refining the options most likely to secure a majority.

Many Conservative eurosceptics had made clear they would only c

onsider supporting May’s deal if she gave a firm commitment to resign, hoping a new leader

would be more sympathetic to their views when negotiating the terms of Britain’s future relationship with the EU.

“I have heard very clearly the mood of the parliamentary party,” May told a meeting of Conservative lawmakers (MPs).

“I know there is a desire for a new approach – and new lead

ership – in the second phase of the Brexit negotiations – and I won’t stand in the way of that.”

But within hours of May’s offer, the Democratic Unionist Party, which props up her minority gov

ernment, said it would vote against the deal if May brought it back a third time.

  Hirscher’s season tally of 10 wins was reduced to nine after the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld Stefan Luitz’s ap

peal against a doping violation and reinstated the German’s victory in Beaver Creek on December 2.

  Luitz was disqualified when he was photographed inhaling oxygen from a mouthpiece between the fi

rst and second runs. The International Ski Federation (FIS) ruled it was against anti-doping rules at FIS events. Luitz lodged an app

eal on January 29 and it was heard on March 11. The panel ruled that the World Anti-Doping Code prevails over FIS laws.

  ”FIS fully accepts the decision of CAS and all World Cup records and the World Cup star

ting list for giant slalom has been adjusted to reflect the decision,” said an FIS statement.

ai Xiaomin, former China Huarong Asset Management board chairman, has been charged with bribery, corruption and bigamy, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate said on Friday.

China Huarong is one of the country’s four largest State-own asset management companies.

It is alleged that Lai exploited various professional positions, including head of the Huarong

corporation and director-general of the banking supervision department of the People’s Bank of China.

While in these positions, it is claimed that he asked for and received significant benefits in exc

hange for “aid”, according to a press release from the SPP, the country’s top prosecuting authority.

It also alleged that Lai was in illegal possession of a large number of public properties, a

nd that he was living as husband and wife with a woman other than his wife, the release said.

Lai, 56, was placed under investigation by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) o

f the Communist Party of China in April last year for “serious violations of disciplinary rules

and laws”, and was expelled from the Party and removed from public office six months later.

The CCDI said he violated political disciplines and State financial policies to blindly expand the c

ompany and operate it in a disorderly manner, resulting in it deviating from its primary tasks and business.

Lai, a Jiangxi province native, started his career at the People’s Bank of China in July 1983, and went on

to hold key positions at the China Banking Regulatory Commission and Beijing Banking Regulatory Bureau.

Chen Kun is a very sensitive, delicate, high-performance, showing a unique melancholy

temperament. Even playing the soft role of “Yuhua Tian” can surprise many girls.

Recently, when Chen Kun participated in an event, fans and passers-by all knew that Chen Kun would appear.

Everyone was surrounded by three layers of interior and three layers of periphery. When Chen Kun appeared under the

protection of staff and bodyguards, the crowd immediately burst into excitement. Everyone was calling Chen Kun’s name,

hoping that the idol could see his side. Chen Kun wore a black down suit that day. His long black hair was also pinched by a black hairpin. As he walked, he folded his hands together to thank the fans for their enthusiasm.

At first, Chen Kun followed the staff. When he was halfway there, a passer-by shouted, “Yang Kun, how handsome!” As a result, Chen Kun, who had already taken several steps, turned around and corrected the passers-by seriously: Chen Kun, not Yang Kun.

Chen Kun’s serious corrective expression not only made passers-by laugh, but also the assistant beside Chen Kun could not help laughing.

Chen Kun corrected the mistake and looked at the passer-by with a firm eye. Then he was pulled forward by the assistant.

The passer-by nodded and laughed. Estimate is also a slip of the tongue, although Yang Kun and Chen Kun

are only one word apart, are also stars, but the difference in appearance is several grades.

On the evening of the 27th, Chen Kunfawen responded suspiciously to the video with the wrong name and wrote,

“When the plane landed, they turned on their mobile phones. I just got up.

I was a little embarrassed to hear my voice in a video. The other party looked up and stayed there for a while.

Suddenly he laughed, and I laughed embarrassingly. The beauty of life lies in coincidence.”

I didn’t expect Chen Kun to be such a real person in private, but do fans like Chen Kun also have new skills to stop idols?

 

Life is full of surprise and happiness.

Knowing how to treat things

with the eyes of looking for

beauty can always find many happy things.

the last chapter closed with the arrival of Li Yue who

shouted out falsely that the army was that of the two

arch rebels Li Jue and Guo Si come to capture the imperial cavalcade. But Yang Feng recognized the voice of Li Yue and bade Xu Huang go out to fight him. Xu Huang went and in the first bout the traitor fell. The White Wave rebels scattered, and the travelers got safely through Zhiguan Hills. Here the Governor of Henei, Zhang Yang, supplied them plentifully with food and other necessaries and escorted the Emperor to Zhidao. For his timely help, the Emperor conferred upon Zhang Yang the rank of a Grand Commander. Yang Feng moved his army to the northeast of Luoyang and camped at Yewang.

  Capital Luoyang was presently entered. Within the walls all was destruction. The palaces and halls had been burned, the streets were overgrown with grass and brambles and obstructed by heaps of ruins. The palaces and courts were represented by broken roofs and toppling walls. A small “palace” however was soon built, and therein the officers of court presented their congratulations, standing in the open air among thorn hushes and brambles. The reign style was changed from Prosperous Stability to Rebuilt Tranquillity, the first year (AD 196)。

  the year was grievous with famine. The Luoyang people, even reduced in numbers as they were to a few hundreds, had not enough to eat and they prowled about stripping the bark off trees and grubbing up the roots of plants to satisfy their starving hunger. Officers of the government of all but the highest ranks went out into the country to gather fuel. Many people were crushed by the falling walls of burned houses. At no time during the decadence of Han did misery press harder than at this period.

  A poem written in pity for the sufferings of that time says:

Mortally wounded, the white serpent poured forth its life blood at Mangdang Hills;Blood-red pennons of war waved then in every quarter, Chieftain with chieftain strove and raided each other’s borders, Midst the turmoil and strife the Kingship even was threatened.

Wickedness stalks in a country when the King is a weakling,

Brigandage always is rife,

when a dynasty’s failing, Had one a heart of iron,

wholly devoid of feeling, Yet would one surely

grieve at the sight of such desolation.
