It’s regrettable that the US treats academics like me in

such an unfriendly and offensive manner,” Wang said, adding t

hat Washington’s decision shows that the country has become an “oversensitive and

paranoid one which has a lack of confidence in dealing with diplomatic relations”.

A number of Chinese social scientists have had similar experiences when their US visas were revoked.

Zhu Feng, executive director of the China Center for Collaborat

ive Studies of the South China Sea at Nanjing University, told the Global Times news

paper in Beijing that his 10-year US visa was crossed out by FBI agents, canceling it, whe

n he was about to board a flight back to Beijing at Los Angeles International Airport in March 2018.

Zhu said the FBI first threatened to revoke his visa if he did not cooperate with their inquiry.

“‘Go back to China’,”Zhu recalled an agent telling him during that visit. “You will receive a notification.”

The bond pricing mechanism will be further improv

Under a pilot scheme, the first group of six provinces and cities sold 6.8 billion yuan in bonds

at commercial bank counters to individual buyers between March 22 and early April.

The coupon rates are between 3.01 percent and 3.33 percent, higher than treasury b

onds issued by the central government as well as bank deposits with the same maturity.

Gross local bond issuances hit 1.18 trillion yuan in the first qua

rter, compared with only 219.5 billion yuan in the same period last year.

The total quota for 2019 local government bond issuances is 3.08 trillion yuan, according to the Ministry of Finance.

“About 60 percent of the bonds were issued for ongoing construction, especially

for shantytown renovation projects, railways and roads,” said Hao Lei, head of the ministry’s Budget Department.

While debt financing continues to grow, the government is experiencing sharp declin

es in fiscal revenue growth, especially from tax and land sales, official data showed.

Guns, tanks are modified to fight forest firesguishing guns h

Fire departments across China are on high alert each spring, when forests are prone to erupt in flames.

At least eight forest fires have occurred since the start of this year, with the deadliest killing 30 people who were fighting it.

In an attempt to improve the efficiency of firefighting operations and reduce safety risks, fire depa

rtments have begun to adopt machines such as specially modified artillery guns and tanks.

According to China North Industries Group Corp, commonly kn

own as Norinco, eight long-range fire-extinguishing guns designed and built by the com

pany arrived in Guojiaping village in Changzhi, Shanxi province, on Sunday at the request of provincial auth

orities to help quench the fire that had raged on a nearby mountain for several days.

The guns were used on Monday to launch shells containing fire-exti

nguishing agents onto the hill. With their assistance, firefighters were able to put out

the blaze by afternoon, the State-owned defense conglomerate said on Wednesday.

Xi urges civil affairs authorities to better fulfill duties

Chinese President Xi Jinping has urged civil affairs authorities to focus on poverty alleviation, special groups and issues of public concern to better fulfill their duties.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commis

sion, made the statement in an instruction read at a national civil affairs conference held in Beijing Tuesday.

Editor’s Note: While Boeing struggles with the crisis following the crash of two 737 Max aircraft in

less than half a year, European aerospace heavyweight Airbus inked a record deal during President Xi Jinpin

g’s recent visit to France to sell 300 aircraft to China. Will Boeing‘s struggles prove to be a boon for Chinese airplane manu

facturers, as some media outlets claim? Two experts share their views on the issue with China Daily’s Liu Jianna. Excerpts follow:

A very long way to go for China

Ning Zhenbo, lead consultant for the Center of Information Technology, Aviation Industry Corporation of China, Ltd.

Boeing’s loss does not mean Chinese aircraft manufacturers’ gain, simply because China la

gs far behind the West in the aerospace industry. The fierce competition between Boeing and Airbus, the t

wo aerospace heavyweights, will not have any impact, positive or negative, on China because it is not a player in the field.

ird squadron of criminal investigation of Jiangyang District Public Security Bureau received a public alarm that its mother, Luo Mou, was suspected of being violated at home.

According to the report, after receiving the police, the pub

lic security organs at Luzhou and district levels started the homicide detection mechanism after initial investigatio

n. After investigation, the suspect Jin Mou (male, 54 years old, Luzhou people) died and dismembered his wife Luo Mou in the Victorian community hom

e due to emotional disputes. He falsely claimed that his wife had left home and lost contact. At prese

nt, the suspect has been controlled by the police, and the case is being further investigated.

This event triggered a heated discussion among netizens. Some commented, “How can a husband and wife be so hard-handed once in a hundred days”, “When you think about

the case of wife-killing and insurance fraud, you must wipe your eyes when you look for someone”, “Now people are too easy to be extreme, single to keep safe.” “I

n their 50s, they still haven’t learned how to deal with their emotions, and a family is so separated.”

Wife killings are frequent! Is it the loss of morality or the loss of humanity?

In recent years, into the public’s vision, people are shocked by the frequent cases: Phuket Island “w

ife killing fraud insurance” case, Hunan men killed and buried their wives, Taizhou men heard that their ex-wife remarried, sneaked into the home s

tabbed to death, Shanxi principal derailed divorce was refused to kill his pregnant wife.

This case reminds us of the murder of his wife in Shanghai last year, which caused quite a stir at t

hat time. The suspect (Zhu Mou) was the husband of the victim (Yang Mou). Because of the discord between husba

nd and wife and the existence of emotional entanglement, Zhu Mou was moved to murder under the long-term accumulation of emotions. After killing

Yang Mou, he hid Yang Mou’s body in the refrigerator for three months. Still living together as usual, later things revealed, Zhu confessed to his crime.
