She arrived in Hoh Xil to shoot Tibetan antelopes for the first time in Ju

上海千花坊ne 2016. “I once went to the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau three times in two months to shoot the an

telopes. I once stayed in the depopulated zone in Hoh Xil for 40-plus days. I put up a tent where the antelopes li

ved, and I installed the photographic equipment in the tent. Every day, I entered the tent at 5:30 am, and I left the te上海千花坊女神会所

nt at 9 pm. I could only eat some canned congee, as fragrant food would attract nearby bears,” says Gu.

She is planning to make a documentary that reflects the natural ecology of Hoh Xil and Sanjiangyuan. “Th

上海千花坊ere are few images about the animals and plants in the depopulated zone. I need to spend mu

ch time shooting the species. I hope more people will gain a more comprehensive understanding of Hoh Xil a

nd Sanjiangyuan through my photos and videos,” says Gu. She provides her photos and videos to experts, to he上海千花坊女神会所

lp them conduct their research. Experts at the Northwest Institute of Plateau Biology, under the Chinese Ac

ademy of Sciences, spoke highly of Gu’s images of the migration of the

Tibetan antelopes. Experts cannot say for certain why the antelopes migrate every ye上海千花坊

上海千花坊女神会所Gu serves as deputy secretary-general of the Hoh Xil Wildlife Conservation Association. She

has given lectures, in China and abroad, on photography and ecological protection. She also gives lect

conomy plowing ahead上海419ite strong headwindsChin

For those who are concerned about China’s economic well-being, the first half-year fig

ures released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday may not be enough to relieve them of their worr上海419

ies, especially given the ongoing trade conflict with the United States and weakening global demand.

上海419After all, a 6.2 percent growth in the second quarter — although still within the gove

rnment’s target range of 6-6.5 percent for the year — was the weakest in nearly three decades.上海419

This, together with lukewarm trade readings released on Friday — exports fell 1.3 percent in June from a year earlier and imports dropped 7.3 percent — sugge

sts economic conditions are still severe and, with external uncertainties on the rise, the economy “is under new dow

上海419女神会所nward pressure”, as NBS spokesman Mao Shengyong said at a news conference.

But again, this is really a question of do you see the glass half empty or half full, given that

China remains one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies. While pessimists focus on the diffi

culties, optimists see the silver lining of the Chinese economy’s remarkable resilience given the headwinds it faces.上海419

For example, retail sales, a major gauge of consumption, surged 9.8 percent, much higher than the expected 8.5 percen

t and also the highest since March 2018. Many analysts attribute the progress to the central government’s ef

forts to boost domestic consumption — these range from massive tax cuts of nearly 2 trillion yuan ($291 billion) to the iss上海419女神会所

uance of 2.15 trillion yuan of special bonds by local governments for infrastructure construction.

上海419Other strong data, such as a 6.3-percent increase in industrial output an

d a 5.8-percent rise in January-June fixed asset investment, all indicate that the fund

amentals for steady growth remain unchanged and the government still has ample room for policy maneuvers.

Actually, once last month’s much-better-than-expected gains in retail上海419女神会所

sales, factory output and fixed-asset investment were announced, the market quickly cast its vot

上海419女神会所e of confidence in the Chinese economy. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended 0.4 percent up on Monday a

fter casting off losses that had pushed it down as much as 1.5 percent in the morning ahead of the data release.

Barry is expected to bring dangerous storm surge and heavy rains across the north-central Gulf Coast foll

The central bank’s data is largely in line with the market’s expectations, said Ming Ming, a上海后花园品茶微信

上海后花园uenced by multiple factors. It is likely to maintain a neutral stand and we should not expect substantial monetary easing.”

Shen Jianguang, vice-president and chief economist at JD Digits, said moderate inflation

in China will leave more room for monetary policy adjustments, if necessary, in the third quarter.上海后花园

China’s consumer price index stood at 2.7 percent for June, unchanged from May, and wa

上海后花园品茶微信s 2.2 percent for the first half of this year, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Wednesday.

It’s not just narcotics officers and lawmakers who need to keep up with the rapid development of new types of illegal recr上海后花园品茶微信

eational drugs, but also sniffer dogs at the General Administration of Customs’ canine training center in Beijing.

上海后花园With dozens of suitcases lined up in two rows on the center’s training ground, Fun, a

3-year-old Labrador sniffer dog, takes just 10 seconds to find the one containing drugs.

Fun sits obediently in front of the suitcase while his handler, customs officer Yu Xiaodong, crouches and pats him上海后花园品茶微信

on the head as encouragement. Yu then uses a rolled-up towel to play a tug-of-war game with Fun.

“Tug-of-war is the biggest motivation for these dogs to work,” he said. “By dragging the towel, the excitability of the dogs can be cultivated.”上海后花园

Yu said the dogs rely on their acute sense of smell. “Without unpacking the luggage, the sniffer dogs are faster and more accurate than manual inspections.

“上海后花园品茶微信With the emergence of new kinds of drugs, these sniffer dogs need to update their sensibilities to detect the new stuff.”

New synthetic drugs including stimulants similar to amphetamines are appearing constantly, according to the Supreme People’s P

rocuratorate. Detecting them has also become more difficult, because a large number of drug dealers no longer ca上海后花园

“In accordance with the different tasks, the detection dogs in custo上海后花园品茶微信

uggling officer with Beijing customs. “Some are trained to find explosives, tobacco, bank notes and ivory. Our s

niffer dogs are capable of identifying more than seven kinds of drugs and their derivatives.”

Yu said Fun had been working for more than a year and can distinguish five different types of drugs.

Exploring challenges 上海千花坊ities in healthcare

To explore further the challenges and huge opportunities in this area, the Novartis Fou

ndation and Microsoft are co-chairing a new Broadband Commission working group that will m上海千花坊

ake recommendations regarding how AI can safely improve health and strengthen healthcare systems. In a sim

上海千花坊品茶微信ilar vein, health-advocacy organization PATH is working with the Tanzanian government to test machine-lea

rning applications that promise to predict demand for vaccines more accurately and optimize their delivery.上海千花坊

Digital health tools that inform and empower patients can also play a crucial role in p

reventing disease. Simple, existing, cost-effective technology, such as mobile phones and broadband, can ma上海千花坊品茶微信

ke a huge difference in raising awareness of the causes and early symptoms of diseases. PATH and the No

上海千花坊vartis Foundation, for example, are collaborating on the Communities for Healthy Hearts program in Vietnam, w

hich uses digital technology to improve and accelerate control of hypertension-the leading cause of heart disease.

Finally, digital technology can help to deliver healthcare to people in remote or und上海千花坊品茶微信

erserved areas, thereby tackling one of the greatest obstacles to reducing disease. Using

mobile phones, WhatsApp, and text messages can improve the quality and accessibility of care for millions of people. In this re上海千花坊品茶微信

gard, the Novartis Foundation and PATH have introduced telemedicine in Ghana, which connects rural inhabitants wi

th trained healthcare professionals, and digital dashboards that enable better, faster malaria care.上海千花坊品茶微信

Digital data must be made part of health systems

Digital data and technology must be fully integrated into national health systems, and should become as essential as hos

pital beds. Too many digital health pilot programs over the past decade have been uncoordinated and focused on sing上海千花坊

le issues. Leadership from national governments is therefore critical to ensuring a coherent approach.

Fortunately, global and country-led efforts are starting to move in this direction. Earlier this year, for example, the D上海千花坊品茶微信

emocratic Republic of the Congo established its first digital health agency, with the aspiration of improving ma

nagement of the healthcare system, providing better care, and making services more accessible.

We can solve the global health crisis and achieve universal coverage, but only by making

digital tools central to all countries’ health systems. No single organization can achieve this on its own: we

need the public, private and social sectors to work together. In fact, the goal must be to make these new technologies s

o widespread that we no longer need to refer to “digital” health, because that is what all health systems will be.
