US District Court Judge James Shadid read instructions to the jury on Wednesd

上海后花园ay morning after the prosecution and defense made their closing arguments.

“The law leaves this decision exclusively to you, the jury,” Shadid said. “Whichever sentence you choose, death or life im上海后花园

prisonment without the possibility of release, the court is required to impose that sentence.”

上海后花园品茶微信Zhang’s mother, father, boyfriend and brother were in the main courtroom Wednesday m

orning, but after some deliberation in the judge’s chambers, her mother didn’t return.

The same 12 jurors took under 90 minutes on June 24 to unanimo上海后花园

usly find Christensen guilty of all three counts against him, namely kidnapping resulting in th

上海后花园e death of the 26-year-old Zhang, and two counts of making false statements to the FBI.

Christensen’s defense lawyers admitted to the court that in June 2017, he

raped Zhang and beat her to death with a bat. Christensen hasn’t said what he did with the bod上海后花园品茶微信

y. Investigators have not been able to find Zhang’s body, despite an intensive search.

In his closing argument, federal prosecutor James Nels上海后花园

on argued that “justice must be done” and asked, “Is this a minimum-sentence case?”

He acknowledged the grief of Christensen’s family would have if he were sen上海后花园品茶微信

tenced to death, but said the “source of that pain sits in that chair”, referring to Christensen.

He described the impact on Zhang’s family, as they placed great hope in her.

上海后花园”That’s why Yingying fought so hard. She had so much to live for,” Nelson said.

“Everyone in this room felt the weight of Yingying Zhang’s murder,” US Attorney Eug上海后花园品茶微信

A story by the head of the National Endowment for Democracy published in The Washingt

上海后花园品茶微信on Post last Thursday about the horrifying riot on July 5, 2009, was a typical example of this.

In that riot, 197 innocent people were killed and 1,700 more injured. Without showing any sympathy to the dead and injur

Looking at what happens in Xinjiang through such a prism of bias, it is not uncom

上海后花园品茶微信mon for Westerners to have a double standard when it comes to terrorist attack

s in China and the country’s efforts to combat terrorism and extremism in the region.

The vocational training centers China has organized are meant to equip Uygurs, in partic

ular Uygur youths, with knowledge and skills上海后花园

so that they can land a job to make a decent living, which will hopefully keep them away from contact with extremism.

Such training has proved effective. Xinjiang has witnessed no terrorist attack

上海后花园品茶微信s in more than three years; tourist trips made to Xinjiang from home and abroad reached 150 million last year; its econo

my has grown by 40 percent over the past five years; and the Uygur population has increased from about

9.8 million to over 12 million in over a decade with their religious rights and activities strictly protected by law.

It seems as if what those Westerners, who always point accusing fingers at China for上海后花园品茶微信

what it has done and is doing in Xinjiang, want to see this region being plagued by terrorist attacks. It seems as if they consider a

Xinjiang plagued by violence as the one respecting human rights and a peaceful Xinjiang the one lacking any respect for human rights.

• What is China’s position and attitude toward Sino-US economic and trade friction?

Since some people in the US provoked the Sino-US economic and trade friction, the two sides have increasingly taken divergent approaches to this issue. That is, s上海后花园

hould it be taken as a zero-sum game or based on mutual benefit, being addressed through confrontation or cooperation? Should the countries stay enc

losed or open up, maintaining a monopolistic or competitive market? Should the countries stick to unilateralism or multilateralism? All these differences are underpinned by the ulti上海后花园女神会所

mate question of whether the world is governed by the old way of hegemonism, or a new approach by building a community with a shared future for m

上海后花园女神会所ankind. China’s position and attitude toward these major fundamental issues is clear, firm and consistent.

Faced with the economic and trade friction provoked and escalated by some people in the US, China does not want a trade war. However, the country is not afra

id of a trade war and will fight one if necessary. Proceeding from safeguarding the common interests of the two countries and the world trade order, Chin上海后花园女神会所

a has responded to the concerns raised by the US with great sincerity. China overcame various difficulties, proposed practical solutions, and conducted 11 rounds of high-level ec

onomic and trade consultations with the US, which demonstrated China’s sincere desire of not fighting a trade war. How

ever, the US has continuously challenged China’s bottom line and overstepped the red line of norms governing international relations, att上海后花园女神会所

empting to sacrifice China’s rights to development and even damaging China’s sovereignty and dignity.

No matter how the situation develops, China runs its own affairs well. The fundamental way to deal with ec

onomic and trade friction is to develop itself through reform and opening-up, which China will continue to deepen.

First molten salt so上海后花园女神会所lant runs at fu

The country’s first 上海后花园女神会所100-megawatt molten salt solar thermal power plant in Dunhuang, Northwest China’s Ga

nsu province, has successfully generated power while operating at full capacity on Monday morning, Chinanews.com reported.

Nearly 20 hours of operating records on Monday show the systems at the power plant have been normal and stable. The facility also s

et a new record by generating over 1.8 million kilowatt-hours of power day and night, with all indicat

ors suggesting it has reached or exceeded its designed values. This marks another important step after the plant cr

eated 1.67 million kWh of power over 34 hours of continuous operations in mid-April.

Huang Wenbo, vice-chairman of Beijing Shouhang, said the power plant has withstood the test of runni

ng under the harshest environmental conditions in different seasons, which means it can be widely used in northwestern areas.

The power station is among China’s first batch of solar thermal power generation demonst

ration projects. With an investment of 3 billion yuan ($433.1 million), it was built by Beijing Shouhang IHW Re

Online courses have increased public access to q上海后花园女神会所uality educational resources, b

ut unlike traditional classrooms, the teachers cannot directly monitor and interact with the

ir students when teaching online, which can lead to disengaged students and poor feedback.

To resolve these issues, three students from Tsinghua and the University of Tsukuba in Japan

have created an AI-based model that can be integrated into online teaching platforms to analyze f

acial expressions and “bullet screens”, real-time viewers’ comments on the screen.

The model then crunches the data and creates a line graph that tells the teacher exactly when and what p

arts of the lesson students find most interesting or difficult. The project won third prize at th

e 2018 International Collegiate Competition for Brain-Inspired Computing hosted by Tsinghua.

“This empowers teachers to gain objective, timely and multifaceted insights into

their students’ state of learning, which can be used to assess and improve their lessons,” said Qie Nan, an ind

Since agricultural products account for a relatively smal

ll percentage of China’s total exports to the US, the tariff hike is expected to have a limited impact on its overall trade. But Chi

na’s export of textiles, chemicals, daily necessities and some other products will be affected. Yet the effect of the h

igher tariffs would be somewhat offset due to the ratio of foreign capital and value-added goods in China’s foreign trade.

In terms of product category, the tariffs are targeted at intermediate and capital goods. Intermediate prod

ucts, capital goods, and consumer goods account for 51 percent, 32 percent and 17 percent of t

he $250 billion of Chinese goods on which the US has imposed higher tariffs (the US had already slapped higher tari

ffs of $50 billion of Chinese goods last year). And since 29 percent of consumer goods, 39 percent of capital goods and 74 perce

nt of intermediate products face higher tariffs, intermediate products will be the most affected by the US tariffs.
