e hospital was ordered to solve management problems rela
ting to the case, check on the condition of the surviving babies and console the parents.
A deputy director of the health bureau of the Shunde district of F
oshan, Guangdong, was also fired, and others deemed responsible were punished.
No new case has been reported in the hospitals that have treated the affected babies.
The provincial health commission has ordered all t
he medical institutions in the province to check their infection-control procedures.
The viral strain that affected the infants was identified by the commission as Echo 11. It is an intestinal virus to which child
ren, especially infants, are susceptible. It is closely related to a respiratory infection.
To ease the anxiety of parents, especially moms, kids should be taught how to
be a good person, rather than just be good at cracking exams and earning good scores.
Parents should be happy if their children excel in their own chosen
fields, and teach them the importance of honesty, kindness and shared responsibilities.
These good traits will help the kids a lot in their future development.
Over-anxious parents, on the other hand, could prevent kids from excelling in even their own chosen fields.

integration－trade, investment and finance－began benefiting large emerging and developing econ
omies. To be sustainable, globalization cannot serve just a few wealthy advanced economies. It m
ust also serve poorer and faster-growing economies, which today account for most of the global growth.
So, by flirting with trade protectionism and punitive tariffs on imports, adva
nced economies are seeking to implement the wrong policies at the wrong time. As the adv
anced countries have fallen into secular stagnation, they desperately need growth. Therefore, the rise of poorer eco
nomies is not a win-lose game, because it benefits the advanced economies, too.
In the aftermath of the 2008 global financial crisis, all major advanced econom
ies would have faced another Great Depression without the support of large emerging economies, particularly Ch
ina. And the contribution of these countries to global GDP growth is expected to climb to 80 percent by 2050.
The Beijing International Horticultural Exhibition opened just two days before the May holiday, giving
the public a close-up view of state-of-the-art gardens created by horticulturists from around the world.
China hosted a similar exhibition in Kunming, Yunnan province, in 1
999. In the two decades since, the social and economic situations in China have unde
rgone tremendous changes. A growing awareness of environmental protection is one of them.
Two decades ago, the Chinese people embraced the Kunming horticu
ltural show as a novelty and curiosity because the countr
y at that time did not have many opportunities to host large international gatherings.
Economic development at the time was the top priority of the country,
which explains why the news media were so interested in reporting that 15 billion yu
an ($2.23 billion) in economic and trade deals were inked during the exhibition.

“Recently, the government has introduced a series of su

After finally recognising that her minority Conservative g
overnment could not push through a Brexit deal on its own, May started talks this w
eek with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the hope of coming up with a cross-party solution.
But that means accepting the need for more time, including the possibility of Britain hol
ding European Parliament elections on May 23, which May has long hoped to avoid at all cost.
“The United Kingdom proposes that this period should end on 30 June 2019,” May said in the letter.
“The government will want to agree a timetable for ratification that allows the United Kin
gdom to withdraw from the European Union before 23 May, 2019, and therefore cancel the European Parlia
ment elections, but will continue to make responsible prepara
tions to hold the elections should this not prove possible.”
China will start the trial run of football-focused kindergartens this year, with 50 to 200 such kin
dergartens in each provincial-level region, according to a directive by the Ministry of Education.
It is among the country’s efforts to popularize campus football, encourage kindergartens
to extensively carry out child football activities and foster children’s all-around development.
The pilot program aims to cultivate interest in football in children through popular
football games and create an atmosphere favorable for football culture to grow, the directive says.
Various physical activities tailored for kids will be held, during which children are enco
uraged to run, jump, climb, pitch and bounce balls to promote the development of their basic sports abilities.
Kindergartens must give top priority to children’s safety and health, the ministry stresses.

According to Zhao Yongheng, a researcher from the National Astronomical Ob
servatories of China, LAMOST’s latest spectra data is the world’s most complete astronomical data set,
providing a reference for the formation and evolution of the Milky Way as well as other galaxies.
More than 100 institutes and universities from the US, Germ
any, Belgium, Denmark and other countries and regions around the world are using this dat
a to carry out research on the evolution of the Milky Way, stellar physics and special celestial bodies.
With LAMOST, Chinese astronomers have discovered the most lithium
