urged to avoid more damage to China tiesonly

Beijing urged Washington on Saturday “not to go too far” in harming China’s interest

s, and called for it to change course to avoid further damaging bilateral ties.

China firmly opposes the United States’ recent remarks and actions that harmed China’s interests, in

cluding its resorting to political means to suppress normal operations of Chinese companies, State Coun

cilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a phone call with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

History and reality show that China and the US both benefit f

rom cooperating with each other, while both suffer from bilate

ral conflicts, and cooperation is the only proper choice for the two major countries, Wang said.

It was also decided at the meeting to submit the dr

raft amendments to the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, C

hina’s top legislature, for deliberation, according to a statement after the meeting.

Suggestions for revisions include adding the principle of “non-discrimination” in administrativ

e licensing, substantially raising the amount of compensation for infringing exclusive rights to use trade

marks, and cutting approval time for applications for qualified construction permits.

Last month, the National People’s Congress passed the foreign

investment law, a landmark legislation that will provide stronger protection and a better bus

iness environment for overseas investors. The law will become effective on Jan 1, 2020.n costumes of ethnic grou

The islanders were shipped to Rongerik, an uninhabited atoll

  about 100 miles away, and left food supplies for a few weeks. But crops on the Bikinians’ new home produced signif

icantly less food than those on Bikini, and the nearby waters had far less edible catch.

  Within two years, the population was on the verge of starvation.

  In 1948, the US responded to their plight. Once more the Bikinians were uprooted — this ti

me to Kwajalein, where they lived in tents next to a cement airstrip used by Americans. Six months lat

er, they were shipped to Kili Island, 400 miles south of Bikini, where they again began to starve.

  One attempt was made to resettle the Bikinians in the late 1960s when some 150 residents we

re returned to their atoll. But in 1978 it was revealed that within one year some residents had seen a 75% inc

rease in radioactive material in their bodies, and all residents were once again moved, this time to Majuro Atoll.

  In the early 1980s, the Bikinians filed a class action lawsuit against the US, which eventually resu

lted in the creation of a $90 million trust fund for their local government for cleanup and resettlement purposes.

  Still, presidential vetoes occur more often than you might think. Every president since Garfield has vetoed at least

one bill. The younger Bush was the first president since John Quincy Adams to go a full four years without a veto, acco

rding to the Congressional Research Service. The House, which was Republican-led for Bush’s entire first term,

was protecting him from bills he opposed. Barack Obama, similarly, had help on Capitol Hill for most of his pr

esidency, just as Trump has. But Obama did veto two bills even when Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress.

  The President with the most vetoes was Democrat Roosevelt, wi

th 635, although he also served the longest in the White House (12 years). All those vetoes cam

e even though Roosevelt enjoyed Democratic majorities for his entire time in the White House.

  If you plot vetoes alongside how closely aligned Congress is

to the president, it used to be quite common for a president to veto bills from a House and Senate ali

gned with him. This data comes from The American Presidency Project at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

But Myanmar still has some obstacles to deal with in order

attract foreign capital. The first is instability in the job market and relatively low labor efficiency. Particularly, the recent years have seen an increasing number of strikes and the failure of the g

overnment to ease industrial relations conflicts with effective measures has crippled investor confidence in the country. Some foreign ent

erprises even withdrew from Myanmar and shifted to neighboring countries, denting the image of the nation.

Second, Myanmar’s backward infrastructure may deter potential investors. A small nu

mber of power generation facilities and fragmented grids cannot ensure stable and sufficient po

wer supply. Access to electricity is limited to only 26 percent of the population, impeding Myanmar’s economic development.

Third, some Myanmese are prejudiced against foreign investment. Worrying that Myanmar’s eco

nomic and social interests may be impaired, they turned their backs on foreign investment. Demonstrators r

allied in Kachin State to demand the government permanently halt the Myitsone dam project, without giving any constructive suggestion on the fo

llow-up arrangements. It’s fair to say some movements against foreign-invested projects, driven by nationalism an

d so-called environmental concern, are of no help in improving the country’s investment environment, and have hijacked economic development. Re

specting the spirit of the contract is a basic requirement for modern states and their people. Myanmar State Councilor Aun

g San Suu Kyi recently said an administration shouldn’t terminate foreign-invested projects approved by its predecessor.

Stomach cancer signs and symptomsrs, speak to a gastr

Early stage stomach cancer rarely causes symptoms, making early detection very d

ifficult. Stomach cancer may present vague gastrointestinal symptoms or may m

imic other conditions, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gastritis or a peptic ulcer.

Signs and symptoms of stomach cancer can include: a sense of fullness after ea

ting small amounts, discomfort or pain in the upper abdomen, nausea and vomi

ting and/or bloating after meals, loss of appetite and/or unexplained weight loss, indigestion, heartburn or diffi

culty swallowing, vomiting blood or blood in the stool, and weakness and fatigue.

Most of these symptoms may be caused by things other than stomach cancer. However, don’t ignore your symptoms. If yo

u see blood or if you have these symptoms for more than two or three weeks, especially if they are getting wor

se, you should see a gastroenterologist or your family doctor for further investigation.
