To encourage them to move, Guizhou authorities have used a better schooling for their children as bait,” said Zhang Qing of Guizhou’s provincial Education Department.
“More than 130,000 children will be enrolled in the 1,600 preschool facilities and primary and secondary schools near their urban s
ettlements. Also, 333 nurseries and junior high schools will be built to enroll some 50,000 relocated children,” Zhang added.
To promote educational development and cultivate more high-quality teachers in the country’s central and w
estern regions, China launched a State-level training program for rural primary and middle school teachers in 2010.
Primary school teachers in Guizhou have joined the training at Beijing Normal University.
In September 2014, President Xi Jinping met with teachers from Guizhou who were r
eceiving training at Beijing Normal University. The group of teachers later wrote a letter to Xi.
In a letter of reply to the Guizhou teachers, Xi asked them to lead education reform in poor areas.

The lake, spanning a total of 60 square kilometers in the heart of Hangzhou, is ne

During the recent holiday, it was one of the most popular tourist spots amo
ng millions of domestic travelers, along with the Great Wall and the Forbidden City.
“It’s not only about giving tourists directions to the toilet or preventing people from smoking,” said Bela Nitesh Parm

The study also found that transgenic monkeys’ brains took longer to develop, in a similar fashion to humans.
The experiment has divided the scientific community however, with a number of Western scientists criticizing it as uneth
ical, while some went as far to suggest, perhaps ironically, that it could lead to a Planet of the Apes-type scenario.
The Kunming Institute of Zoology told China Daily in a statement that the experiment was ethically approved in 2010.
In 2015 the animal rights committee of Kunming Biomed International, a research organiza
tion specializing in nonhuman primates, also declared the animals were being treated humanely in every
step of the experiment, in accordance with domestic and international regulations, the statement said.

Artificial intelligence will bring about changes as fundamental as t
hose enabled by electrification, argues Li Kaifu, Chinese artificial intelligence specialist and fo
under of the venture capital firm Sinovation Ventures. He says that China is leading in real-world applications of AI to bus
inesses, factories and cities, and is catching up with the United States in basic research.
Li’s technological optimism contrasts with a widespread pessi
mism about technology prevalent among thinkers from Silicon Valley.
For example, famed venture capitalist Peter Theil uses the slogan “We wanted flying cars, ins
tead we got 140 characters” as the subtitle of his investment fund. In many interviews, he ha
s explained that we’ve seen “innovation in the world of bits, but not in the world of atoms”.
edge technology, is of great importance to China in terms of safety, efficiency, services and the development of industries.
“China is paying great attention to the development of this technology. Our principle is
to encourage trials, allow failures, ensure safety and oppose monopolies,” he said.
Autonomous driving, although a new concept, has been embraced by many people. A survey re
leased in November 2017 by JD Power, a global marketing information services company based in the
United States, found that almost 80 percent of Chinese consumers welcomed autonomous driving, although they might hav
e concerns about the safety of the technology and the lack of related laws and regulations.
To root out people’s concerns and ensure better development, the Ministry of Transport c
reated China’s first regulations for road testing for autonomous vehicles in April, jointly with
the Ministry of Public Security and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Li said.
In July, the Ministry of Transport released guidance on how to build safe closed test sites for autonomous driving.
As the fastest and safest means of transportation, security inspection is indispensable. Every day,
the goods intercepted by security inspectors are all-inclusive. Recently, security inspectors at
Qingdao Airport stopped a mischievous passenger, who was stopped by security inspection and delayed his journey.
At about 5:50 p.m. on January 3, 2019, members of a five-unit Sunshine Team of the Qingdao Airport
Security Brigade Inspection Team are carrying out the security inspection in an orderly manner.
At this time, a flustered, dodgy young man attracted the attention of the former guide. More doubtfully,
the young man’s expression was strange. When the staff talked to him, he remained silent and seemed to have something in his mouth.
After the passenger came down from the safety door, the person in charge of the passage questioned him.
At first, the passenger remained silent, with a strange smile on his lips.
The person in charge of the corridor asked the passenger to open his mouth for inspection. He spit
out a lighter from his mouth and finally handed it over to the airport public security organ according to relevant regulations.
