The two drafts are under their third readings at the on

going session of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress.

The emphasis on objectivity and impartiality was suggested after the drafts’ se

cond readings, as legal experts pointed to the importance of procurators to objectively collect evidence.

The new drafts also stipulate tighter supervision over judges and procurators and give th

em more responsibilities such as keeping business secrets and personal privacy infor

From the nine photos uploaded by Han, people could

 see three panda cubs frolicking behind a green fence and climbing the fence, along with two h

uman hands touching the nose and head of a cub. The one touching the head had red nail polish.

The post angered netizens who criticized Han for endangering the cub, fearing diseases from humans might pass to the animals.

A week later, Han deleted her posts, saying she loved pandas and would behav

e herself in the future. She also said she loved other animals and kept two dogs at home.

One netizen condemned Han for not considering the spread of the canine distemper virus to the panda cub from her two dogs.

The virus was reported to have caused the deaths of captive giant pandas in 1997, wh

en three of the bears died at the Chongqing Zoo in Sichuan’s neighboring Chongqing municipality.

Had the deal been passed, Britain would have left the EU on May

The EU said the rejection of divorce terms made a no-deal Brexit “a likely

scenario” and called an emergency summit for April 10 to decide what to do next.

An EU Commission official said the 27 remaining EU nations were “fully prepared f

or a no-deal scenario at midnight 12th of April” — Britain’s deadline to chart a new course.

Almost three years after Britain voted in June 2016 to leave the EU, British politicians remain deeply gridlocked over Brexit. May had urged divided legislators to s

upport the deal and finally break an impasse that has left Britons uncertain when, or even if, the country will leave the EU.

The 58-vote margin of defeat was narrower than in previous votes in Janua

ry and March, but it still leaves the government’s blueprint for exiting the bloc in tatters.

May’s deal was voted down even after the prime minister sacrificed her job in exchange for Br

exit, promising to quit if lawmakers approved the agreement and let Britain leave the EU on schedule. With the

deal’s rejection, she will face pressure to step aside and let a new Conservative leader take over negotiations with the EU.

Dream lifestyles in Dali end in disappointment

“If you are not satisfied with your life and don’t know why you have lost your smile; if you are unhappy and don’t like being where you are, go west – with Dali your destination.”

These lyrics form part of a song in the Chinese blockbuster movie Breakup Buddies, wh

ich was shot mostly in Dali, an attractive city in Yunnan province, and released in 2014.

The film inspired many middle-income earners tired of the hustle and bustle of urban life to quit their jobs in big cities and move to Dali.

However, unlike in Breakup Buddies, many people’s dreams of finding a

better life in Dali – which has provided the perfect backdrop for romantic trysts in hun

dreds of movies – have not had happy endings, and they are beginning to leave for a variety of reasons.

Chu Xiaogui, an author of popular books who moved to Dali from Beijing with her husba

nd in December 2015, said she had since witnessed many friends leaving and returning to their hometowns.

As swine fever threat falls, most quarantines liftedrantines in

China has lifted pig quarantines in most of the areas where outbreaks of African swine fever have bee

n found, signaling a steady slowdown in the spread of the virus, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs said on Tuesday.

Since the first outbreak of the deadly pig disease was discovered in Au

gust in Northeast China’s Liaoning province, 113 cases in 28 provincial-level regions have be

en confirmed by the ministry. Restrictions on the transport of pigs in 105 of those cases have been lifted.

Yu Kangzhen, vice-minister of agriculture and rural affairs, said the spread of the virus has

slowed because of measures imposed by the authorities, but added that it’s difficult to wipe out the disease in the short term.

Premier says drug costs for chronic diseases to be reimbursable

Outpatient drugs for chronic diseases, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, will be reimbursa

ble by 50 percent through China’s basic medical insurance program this year, Premier Li Keqiang said at a news conference on Friday.

The measure will relieve financial burdens on patients with the two diseases, which number 400 million in China, he said.

The government will also take steps this year to further relieve medical expenditure by

patients with serious diseases through adjusting medical insurance policies, Li said.

The government has been making efforts to improve people’s access to quality medical services and reduce their medical expenditure, Li said.

Last year the prices of 17 anti-cancer drugs were cut by more than 50 percent on av

erage, and were included in the basic medical insurance program so they were reimbursable, he said.

China’s basic medical insurance program has covered almost the entire population in China, he said.

Planes grounded after Ethiopian Airlines crashe doomed Et

The pilots of the doomed Ethiopian Airlines flight told air traffic control they were having “

flight control problems” before the crash, airline CEO Tewolde GebreMariam told CNN’s Richard Quest Tuesday.

That suggests the plane was not responding to pilots’ inputs and they were losing control of the aircraft, Quest explains.

GebreMariam said the flight data recorders “will be sent overseas,” rather than being r

ead in Ethiopia, which does not have the technical capability to do it. He did not say where, specifically, they would be read.

Pilots were aware of airworthiness directive issued after the Lion Air crash in October and had had additional training, he said.

Pilots of Ethiopian Airlines told air traffic control they were having “flight control problems,” reports

“This will be extremely worrying because that is exactly what was happening with Lion Air.
