More than 上海419论坛s into its orbit, Tiangong II has out

ed its two-year designed life span. The spacecraft helped to pave the way for China’s future manned space station, according to the agency.

Wang Ya’nan, editor-in-chief of Aerospace Knowledge magazine, said Tiangong II c

上海419论坛ontributed a great deal to China’s efforts to build its own space station as it accommodated astronauts’ sta

y and verified life-support and in-orbit refueling technologies, all of which are essential to running a space station.

China plans to start putting together its first manned space station around 2020. It is expected to be fully operational aro上海419论坛女神会所

und 2022 and to operate for about 15 years, according to the China Academy of Space Technology.

In 2024, it would become the world’s only space station if t上海419论坛

he United States-led International Space Station is retired that year as planned.

The multimodule station, named Tiangong, will be mainly composed of three parts-a core module attached to two s

上海419论坛pace labs-and have a combined weight of more than 90 tons, the academy said.

The scientific communities of China and the United States still have room for exchanges and cooperation despite ongo

ing trade and technology disputes between the two countries, a senior science policy researcher said.上海419论坛

Stability, development, exchanges and global integration will remain C

hina’s top priorities in the coming decade. Hence, it is crucial for China and the US to respect, ratio

上海419论坛女神会所nally perceive and adjust to each other’s national needs, Pan Jiaofeng, president of the Chinese Academy of Sci

ences’ Institutes of Science and Development, told China Daily in an interview.

The scientific communities should also enhance mutual exchanges and integration of standards to jointly tackle glob上海419论坛

al issues including climate change, aging populations, energy and resources, and natural disasters, he said.

In recent years, China has seen substantial development in science and technol

上海419论坛女神会所ogy due to strong government planning and support, bigger investments, greater efforts from tech en

terprises and sweeping reforms tailored to the needs of researchers to unleash their full innovative potential.

China’s budget for research and development increased to 2.18 percent of its GDP l

ast year, reaching a record high of 1.96 trillion yuan ($285 billion), acc上海419论坛女神会所

ar increase last year in patent applications from Chinese innovators, amounting to 4.32 million at home and abroad

White cannot be calle上海419论坛ack in XinjiangBaisha L

The China-skeptics in the United States are at it again. This time they are using the pretext of huma

n rights violation to criticize China’s policy of combating terrorism and separatism in the Xinjiang Uygu上海419论坛

r autonomous region and improving the livelihoods of the people there. But by so doing, they have exposed their ulterior motives,

上海419论坛女神会所not least because they have no evidence to prove their allegations, and thus become the target of both ridicule and anger.

This group of people has always claimed it wants to “help” China furth

er the human rights cause while, ironically, not paying any attention to the US’ horrible hu上海419论坛

man rights record. Which makes people wonder whether the American people

上海419论坛女神会所elected those “patriots” to “make America great again”, or just to poke their nose into other countries’ internal affairs.

As we Chinese say, seeing is believing and ignorance spreads rumor. The US is thousands of kilometers away from Xinji

ang, and few of those finger-in-every-pie China-skeptics have actually visited this part of the world. Yet they ac上海419论坛女神会所

cept as true rumors about Xinjiang that some people have made it their job to spread.

vespite repeated invitations from the central and local governments to foreign dignitaries, envoys and journalists to visit Xin

jiang, the publication of ample reports, data, photographs and videos showcasing Xinjiang’s development, and the issu上海419论坛女神会所

ance of a white paper on Xinjiang’s human rights condition, those China-skeptics turn a blind eye to the facts.

上海419论坛女神会所The authors who have penned a book on the region – Xinjiang: China’s Muslim Borderland – did visi

t Xinjiang, but what they came up with are distorted versions of the situation, twisted history and pre

judice. Thus, for those who have a political agenda to serve, facts are the first thing to ignore, twist or play with.上海419论坛

Some say this is a result of differences in cultures and values. Yet since the white color is a symbol of purity in one culture and of

supremacism in another, bullying others to attribute just one meaning to a color is nothing but hegemony.上海419论坛

There is little doubt that some politicians in the US and other Western countries have an ulterior motive

behind their seeming concern for Xinjiang residents. And not surprisingly, the motive is directly li

nked with the US’ politics, ideology and global strategy. Showing a sudden interest in Xinjiang after the end of th

e Cold War, the US devised a so-called Xinjiang policy to boost its Central Asia strategy and new global strategy, one

of whose major objectives is to weaken, contain and attempt to disintegrate China.

Zhu Zengyong, a resear上海419论坛 the Chinese Academy

 of Agricultural Sciences, said that with sharp declines in the supply of

pork in China, domestic pork consumption has declined since the second half of last year.

Zhu predicted a further decline in production and consu上海419论坛女神会所

上海419论坛mption this year, and a gap of 5 to 10 percent between supply and demand.

“As an alternative to pork, poultry will see a noticeable increase in

supply in the next two years, which will ease shortages in pork supplies,” he said.

Pork accounts for more than 60 percent of meat production in China上海419论坛

, said Xin Guochang, an information monitoring official at the ministry.

Authorities have been adapting swine fever controls and prevention measures since late last year to effectively contain the infec上海419论坛女神会所

tious disease, which has a high mortality rate for pigs but is not transmittable to humans, Xin said at the Gl

obal Pig Industry Conference hosted by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Beijing on Thursday.

上海419论坛For example, all hogs within 3 kilometers of farms where swine fever had been verified used to be slaughtered for dise

ase prevention and control. Now, more sophisticated calculations are made to determine the area targeted for s

laughter so that farmers without infected animals are more easily able to maintain production, he said.上海419论坛女神会所

The government has been transparent in disclosing information about swi

ne fever outbreaks, Xin said. “But it cannot be entirely ruled out that some pig farmers fa

上海419论坛女神会所iled to report outbreaks to authorities, according to regulations, for various reasons,” he added.

Li Shuilong, president of the China Meat Association, said that although African swine fever has caused serious damage to the

country’s pork sector, it has also provided a good opportunity for the domestic industry to upgrade operations an上海419论坛女神会所

d address problems such as poor sanitation conditions and overuse of vaccines and drugs.

Throughout her bachelor and doctorate years, she sp

nt her summers visiting many grassland.There are no hotels out on the plains, so Xin would often call at herdsme

n’s tents to ask for a meal. The herdsmen always welcomed her and offered her a place to sleep.上海419论坛

In 1998, Xin was recruited by Li Bo, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, to joi

上海419论坛n his grassland ecology remote sensing team to help build an observation and research station in Hulunbuir.

Xin was keen to start the work, but Li suddenly died six months into the project. After taking three months to ove

rcome her sorrow, Xin decided to finish Li’s vision to build the observation and research station at Hulunbuir.上海419论坛

Each year, when the grass began to grow in Ma

y, Xin would go to Hulunbuir, and only return when the grass had dried up in November.

上海419论坛女神会所She was named executive deputy head of the station in 2005, the first fe

male out of all the executives staffing the 53 wild scientific stations across China.

After years of observation and experiments on the Hulunbuir grasslands, Xin mapped out the key dir

ection for research there, filling in the gaps in analysis into meadow steppe ecosystems through observation and research.上海419论坛女神会所

She studied ecosystem modeling for her doctoral degree. By combining all the data he

r team had collected, Xin realized it could be used to guide herdsmen to better grazing pastures.

“As a 21-year-old I visited the Gannan grasslands. At 22, I went to the Qinghai-Tibet Platea上海419论坛女神会所

u. Aged 25 to 27 I visited the Songnen Plain, and at 28 I traveled to the grasslands in the mountain regions of sou

thern China. At the age of 29, I was in Hulunbuir,” Xin says. “Each grassland has its own personality.”上海419论坛女神会所

Field work on the grasslands involved a lot of driving, and Xin spent hours chatting with the driver and watching the road.
