Meanwhile, Lyu registered an online store on Taobao in 2016 and says she has since earned 50,000 yuan.

Speaking about the efforts, Luo Shumei, the president of the Wo

men’s Federation of Changdao village, Xihe county, says: “It’s a good thing to see embroidery pro

duction in Xihe county is shifting from being scattered to being more organized.

“But one drawback is that we are yet to find a good market.”

Separately, in 2016, the Xihe Culture, Radio and

Broadcasting Administration designated Luo, now 32, as a Xihe Qiqiao culture “inheritor”.

As for the future prospects, Luo says: “To be honest, o

ur production is at a bit of a standstill now because we don’t know when the next order will come in.

“And we are reluctant to produce en masse beca

use of the risk of overstocking. But when an order does come in, we’ll work very hard.

That resolution will not pass the Senate, and you can take that

  back to whoever sent you here,” she says, citing that the deal doesn’t have a

single Republican in favor of the proposal and “the k

ey to good legislation is to tailor something that you write so that it can pass, and you can get a step ahead.”

  When a girl urges her to vote yes anyway, Feinstein replies, “I may do that … but it’s not a good resolution.”

  In a statement Friday night about the confrontation, Feinstein said she “always welcomes the oppo

rtunity to hear from Californians who feel passionately about this issue and it remains a top priority of mine.”

  ”Unfortunately, it was a brief meeting but I want the children to know they were heard loud and clear. I have been and rem

ain committed to doing everything I can to enact real, meaningful climate change legislation,” Feinstein said.

  ”We had a spirited discussion and I presented the group with my draft resolution

that provides specific responses to the climate change crisis, which I plan to introduce soon.”

  The conversation at times grew heated, especially when Feinstein dismissed the group’s request due to their tone and their youth.

He got immediate and huge applause, of the type Pence

  can only have wished for.Biden’s antidote to Trump’s two years was to promise change.

  ”And I promise you, I promise you. As my mother would say, ‘this too shall pass.’ We will be back. We will be back. Don’t have any doubt about that.”

  Right on cue more applause fell about him.

  No need to guess whom the Munich crowd would put in the White House given the chance.

  Two years of Trump has had an impact.

  In the hotel this weekend the view is that he is not a safe pair of hands for today’s security challenges.

  At a presentation titled “NATO at 70: An Alliance in Crisis,” two for

mer US representatives to the organization, Douglas Lute and Nicholas Burns, shared insi

ghts from its 55 pages. Those insights were garnered, they said, from 60 past and present ambassadors and cabinet sec

retaries. They concluded that Trump, and his inability to lead, is the biggest of the 10 imminent threats to NATO.

The time has come for our European partners to stand

  with us and the Iranian people, to stand with our allies and friends in the region,” Pence said. “The time has come for our Europe

an partners to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and join with us as we bring the economic and diplomatic pressure necessary.”

  The vice president referred to a mechanism Europeans have created to ensure Iran can continue to import medicine and food, trad

e that is allowed under the Iran nuclear deal but has been constrained by banks’ fears of US retaliation.

  ’A scheme’

  ”In fact, they’ve led the effort to create mechanisms to break up our sanctions,” Pence

said. “They call this scheme a ‘Special Purpose Vehicle.’ We call it an effort to break American sa

nctions against Iran’s murderous revolutionary regime,” Pence said. “It’s an ill-advised step that will only st

rengthen Iran, weaken the EU, and create still more distance between Europe and the United States.”

  Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz worked to stress areas of common agreement in a press appearance with Pence.

Meanwhile in California, a state senator introduced a bil

  would force priests to report suspected child abuse, even if that meant violating the seal of the Sacrament of Penance, wid

ely known as Confession. Under current church law, priests who violate the secrecy of the sacrament can face excommunication.

  ”Individuals who harm children or are suspected of harming children must be reported

so a timely investigation by law enforcement can occur,” said State Senator Jerry Hill, a Democrat from San Mateo.

  ”The law should apply equally to all professionals who have been designated as mandated reporters of these crimes — with

no exceptions, period. The exemption for clergy only protects the abuser and places children at further risk.”

  Pope’s bid to tackle abuse scandal

  The actions by US prosecutors and legislators came as nearly 200 Catholic leaders f

rom around the world descended upon the Vatican to address the clergy sexual abuse crisis.

  The four-day summit, convened by Pope Francis last September, has included a spee

ch by the Pope, talks outlining best practices and small-group discussions among bishops.

Honda is closing its only British factory, wiping out 3,500 jobs

  Honda has just dealt the United Kingdom’s auto industry a huge blow.

  The Japanese carmaker said Tuesday that it will shut down a major manufa

cturing plant in the English town of Swindon that employs 3,500 people. T

housands more jobs will be put at risk at suppliers and other businesses.

  Honda (HMC) has made more than 3 million cars in Swindon since its plant there opened three decades ago. The plant, which

will close in 2021, currently produces up to 150,000 Civics a year for over 70 countries.

  Swindon is the Japanese company’s only car plant in the European Union. The restructuring will also involve Honda’s busi

ness in Turkey, which currently produces 38,000 Civic sedans per year. That will cease in 2021.

  Honda said that production would shift to Japan, North America and China.

  Honda Motor Europe President Katsushi Inoue said in a statement that the restruct

uring is needed to “accelerate our electrification strategy” as the auto industry seeks to overcome “unprecedented changes.”

The UK government described the plant closure as “a

  ating decision for Swindon and the United Kingdom.”

  Business Secretary Greg Clark said in a statement that it was “deeply disappointing that this decision has been taken now” b

ecause Britain is a leader in developing new technologies needed by the auto industry.

  Britain is set to leave the European Union in less than 40 days, but the details of what happens then are uncertain.

  Car company executives have warned that crashing out of the bloc without a deal

on March 29 would snarl their supply chains and disrupt production.

  BMW (BMWYY) plans to close its Mini factory in England for one month of maintenance imm

ediately after Brexit because it can’t be sure of getting the parts it needs. Ford (F), which has 13,000 wo

In short, thanks to changes in the internal and extern

al environment, China’s monetary policy is expected to sail out of the “reefs” in 2019, becoming more flexible in maintaining its prudent, neutral, and marginally loose stance.

We believe that comprehensive and targeted cuts to reserve req

uirement ratios, reductions in open market rates, and increased use of targeted medium-term l

ending facility will become the main policy tools of China’s central bank in 2019. Only when extreme changes happen in the internal and external env

ironment (for example, the Chinese economy fails to stabilize in the middle of 2019 and the Fed doesn’t raise interest rates),

will the possibility of lowering the benchmark deposit and lending interest rates rise significantly.
hina will take measures to help domestic soybe

an and corn farmers, while also seeking to expand imports of certain agricultural products that are considered in s

hortage through diversified channels, according to a central government guideline released on Tuesday.

The plan, came before a new round of trade negotiations between Chinese and US officials set fo

r Thursday and Friday, shows Chinese policymakers’ determination to be le

ss dependent on US agricultural imports such as soybeans even if a deal is likely to be reached, industry analysts said.

Many private enterprises pledged equity to borrow money

stock or real estate investment, instead of investing in their main business, which is not recommended. What we should encourage is tha

t companies should finance R&D and technology, which is conducive to economic development.

Cai Fang, vice president of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences

What lies behind the economic slowdown is the disappearance of the demographic dividend, which has ca

used a decline in the potential growth rate, meaning there is no longer a gap between actual growth rat

es and potential rates. Now, the natural unemployment rate has climbed from 4 to 5 percent, indicating there is no cyc

lical unemployment at present and thus excessive strong stimulus is unnecessary.

The government should focus policymaking on public employment services like

training and appropriately use macroeconomic policy tools to regulate the economy.

Lou Jiwei, chairman of the National Council for Social Security Fund

Industrial policy played a certain role in the early economic developmen

t stage, but later, the actual role of industrial policy was not all positive. Take the auto ind

ustry as an example. The current “big three” private car manufa

cturers have basically broken the constraints of industrial policies to grow up.
