Serving the people: 乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网mission alivectures in front

Party motto inspired by young soldier keeps educating members in new era

XI’AN-Serving the people wholeheartedly-this is

the motto of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the world’s largest ruling party.?乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

In an education campaign themed “stay true to our founding mission”, which has been carried out nationwide since May, all CPC

members and officials are required to bear in mind the phrase and act accordingly.?乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所

The expression “serving the people” originated from a speech by late Chinese leader Ma

o Zedong in September 1944 in memory of a soldier, Zhang Side, renowned for

his lofty morality for serving the people wholeheartedly and sacrificing for the benefit of the people.?乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

The speech has had a profound impact on the history of the CPC, and “serv

?乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所ing the people wholeheartedly” became the fundamental purpose of the Party.

Seventy-five years on, Zhang’s stories have been eulogized by generations of Chinese, and his spirit has been passed on.

Role modelBorn in an impoverished peasant family in Sichuan province in 1915, Zhang joined the New Fourth Army in?乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

1933 and the CPC four years later. Throughout the Long March, Zhang fought bravely in battles and was injured seve

ral times. He also worked very hard while in Yan’an, a revolutionary base of the CPC in the 1940s.

On Sept 5, 1944, Zhang was working in a kiln with several soldiers when suddenly, the kiln coll?乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所

apsed. Zhang pushed a soldier out of the kiln, resulting in him being buried. He died at the age of 29.

Disposable usage dro乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网o trash sorting rule

Shanghai has seen a sharp decline in the usage of disposable items such as toothbrushes, combs, razors, nail polis

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网hers, shoe wipers and loofahs in hotels since the city’s first regulation on waste sorting took effect a month ago.

According to the regulation, hotels can only provide such disposable items to guests upon乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所

request. The violation of the rule could result in fines ranging from 500 to 5,000 yuan ($72.6 to $726).

At St. Regis Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, the number

of disposable toothbrushes used in July was 30 percent lower than the usual average.

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所Campanile Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, which is affiliated to Jin Jiang International Hotels Company, also saw a 30 perc

ent drop in the overall usage of the six items, Xiao Bo, brand executive of Campanile, told the local news portal Eastday.

“Toothpaste and toothbrushes are the most requested items by customers. To reduce waste, we have thre乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

e sizes of toothpaste and offer customers a size according to the duration of their stay,” Xiao told Eastday.

Xiao added that the usage of these six disposable items may be reduced by up to 80 perc

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所ent in the near future as waste treatment regulations get introduced to more cities in China.

Meanwhile, the InterContinental Hotels Group on July 30 announced its plan to swap its miniature bathroom amenities to bu

lk-sized ones by 2021 in order to reduce plastic waste. The move will affect its entire hotel estate of 843,000 guest rooms.乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

“It’s a big step in the right direction and will allow us to significantly reduce our waste footpri

nt and environmental impact as we make the change,” said Keith Barr, CEO of IHG.

qiang?agreed, saying that “America First” should mean shouldering more res

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所ponsibilities and engaging in more international cooperation?with other countries.

Mark Cohen, senior fellow at the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, said after the forum that “what the presi

dent is saying is not the traditional ‘America First’. He’s saying that we need to think about whether these institutions th乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

at were developed by the US at the end of World War II are now serving the best interests of the US.

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所”If you are going to say the system I built no longer works so well for me, then you’ll have

to let go a little bit. I think that process hasn’t really been thought through so well in the US,” he said.

Cohen said it’s not as simple as saying every country looks after its

own priorities. “That may be true for a lot of smaller countries. It may be true even for lar乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所

ger countries that are still focusing on their development, but when you are a country that developed this whole global o

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网rder after World War II, you are really talking about something different,” he said.

Judicial authorities in Yunnan province have decided to retry the high-profile case of

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所Sun Xiaoguo, who received a death penalty for multiple crimes including rape and intentional injury but la

ter got his sentence reduced to 20 years in prison due to the wrongful application of laws.乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

Sun was given the death sentence by the Kunming Intermediate People’s Court in 1998, and a year later the penalty was re

duced to a suspended death sentence with a two-year reprieve by the Yunnan High People’s Court.乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所

In 2007, the penalty was further cut to 20 years in prison for the same charges. However, Sun was freed in April 2010, which means乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

that he actually stayed in prison for only 12 years and five months, according to details released on Friday.

In an acknowledgment that the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have been talking at cross-purposes, US Secretary of State M

ike Pompeo said on Monday that he hoped both sides could “be a little more creative” with what they bring to the ta

ble when the two sides restart talks aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

The US position hasn’t changed, he said, it still wants full and final denuclearization of the DPRK in a way that it could verify.

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网品茶微信But that in itself constitutes a change of approach from before — one that US President Donald T

rump signaled when he met with DPRK top leader Kim Jung-un in the demilitarized zone — as it drops t

he previous demand the DPRK denuclearize before receiving anything in return.乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

Which suggests it’s not really creativity that’s required, but realistic expectations that can be translated into step-by-step moves.

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网品茶微信Washington might want to bear in mind that the national legislature of the DPRK, the Supreme People’s Assembly, amended

the country’s Constitution in April, re-ascertaining leader Kim Jong-un’s status as a “representative of the state”.

Since few doubted Kim’s role as representative of his

country, the constitutional amendment naturally attracted little interest.乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

But Pyongyang’s belated revelation of the full text of its amended C

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网品茶微信onstitution reveals something that does deserve Washington’s attention.

Although it retains the DPRK’s commitment to being a “nuclear state” — which confirms the assumption that the DPRK has

been deeming itself as a legitimate nuclear power in its talks with the US — the most important change thro乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

ughout the constitutional amendment is literally something that is absent in the present text.

The longstanding “Songun Policy”, the core DPRK national strategy that prioritized

the military in the affairs of state and allocation of resources, has been removed from the amended Const乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网品茶微信

itution. This policy simultaneously resulted in the country’s nuclear capabilities and its economic hardships.

Elaborating on the change, Kim stated in his speech at the April meeting that the DPRK’s central乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

task is to concentrate all the energies of the state on economic construction. And the amended Con

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网品茶微信stitution includes new phrases such as “socialist corporate responsibility management system” and “revolutionary busi

ness practices”. Terms reminiscent of those in the early stage of China’s reform and opening-up.

But this latest effort is n乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网use of the politics

Trump announced on Twitter last month that the sweep would mark the beginning of a push to deport

millions of people who are in the country illegally, a near-impossibility given t乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所

he limited resources of ICE, which makes the arrests and carries out deportation orders.

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网Then he abruptly canceled the operation after a phone call with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a

California Democrat, while lawmakers worked to pass a $4.6 billion border aid pac

kage. Plus, details had leaked, and authorities worried about the safety of ICE officers.乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所

The agency said in a statement that it would not discuss specifics about enforcement operations.

“As always, ICE prioritizes the arrest and removal of unlawfully present aliens who pose a thr

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网eat to national security, public safety and border security,” according to the statement.

Trump started hinting anew in recent days that more remo乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

vals were coming. He said last weekend they would be starting “fairly soon.”

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所The administration has been straining to manage a border crisis, an

d some officials believe flashy shows of force in deporting families would deter oth

ers migrants from coming. But others have criticized any move that draws resources a乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

way from the border at a time when the Border Patrol is detaining four times the num

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所ber of people it can hold. Also, a watchdog report found filthy, potentially dangerous conditions at some stations.

Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington state, co-chair o

f the Congressional Progressive Caucus and a former immigrant advocate, accused the adm乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

inistration of showing a “willingness to be cruel at every turn. It sickens me that

乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所this is this is the United States of America. We are so much better than this.”

House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, a Californ

ia Republican, blamed Pelosi for the raids, saying she had done “noth乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网

ing” since they were delayed. “It is the speaker who caused this problem,” he said.

He said Trump would have postponed the raids again if he saw progress in House.

Some activists said they were gearing up for operations to start Sunday and planned to protest. Organiz乐动娱乐唯一正规官网夜网女神会所

ers estimated a rally planned for Saturday in Chicago would draw around 10,000 people.
