n the province. “It felt like the surface temperature was as high as 60 C. It’s a catastrophe.”

He said that some springs in a village called Haikou had drie

ervoirs, however, 14 of them have been used up so far. The drought is beyond imagination.”

“The villagers are doing everything they can to have enough drinki

The region is also at greater risk of forest fires because of the high temperatures and low humidity.

It indicated that nearly 70 percent of tourists traveled over

d overseas to see wildlife at least twice a year. Asia, Africa and Europe are the top three destinations.

About 60 percent of interviewees said they would refuse to take part in tours that migh

t interrupt the normal life of animals in the wild or be harmful to them, even if such a tour might be exclusive.

More than 70 percent of tourists said they are glad to choose tours wit

h higher prices and which take more time in order to be more in touch with the wildlife.

“Wildlife watching has attracted millions of tourists annually and many travelers are driven by the affection of animals. Ho

wever, some activities on such tours have had an adverse impact on the wildlife,” Zhao said.

He said hundreds of thousands of wild animals across the world are taken away from natural habitats, forced into cap

tivity and subjected to abuse, both mentally and physically, in the name of entertainment and profit.

The downward trend will linger in the first half of th

f the year until July or August, when the market may see a recovery, Xu Haidong, assistant to

the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers’ secretary-general, told the newspaper.

The reason for the slowdown in China’s automotive market lies in the lack of consumer confidence, according to CA

AM. In addition, the upcoming stricter Nation VI emission standards, market expectation for the country’s stimulating spe

nding policy and a strong wait-and-see mood, are all contributing to the bleak picture, the association said.

With the actual policy effects from tax cuts and fees reduction

s, a promising consumer market boosted by infrastructure investment, the country’s a

utomobile market will have a stable development throughout the year, said the association.

The province has given 1.69 million registered poo

 students stipends worth a total of 5.3 billion yuan ($777 million) since 2015, according to Guizhou’s Education Department.

While working out its strategy to impart knowledge to rural children, Guizh

ou has also taken into consideration that many kids come to school hungry.

According to Bao Benqi of the provincial Education Department, the Guizhou government has set the goal that

“each of the primary and secondary schools in the rural areas should have a canteen so that lunch can be served to every student”.

The meal is believed to help students improve their performance at school. Many studen

ts in the poverty-stricken areas had been coming to class with an empty stomach, since they did not have food at home.

“More than 3.8 million primary and secondary school students and

860,000 preschool kids are covered in the nutrition project every year,” Bao said.

Different from 3G and 4G technologies, 5G technolo

 will impact various industries and stimulate the emergence of many new products, services and industries.

China Daily’s app was named the “Highly Commended” news app of the year at the newsawards 2019 in London on Wednesday.

The result was announced at the gala dinner held at the Royal Lancaster London. Ch

ina Daily beat two other nominees – The Independent and the Belfast Telegraph – to win the honor.

The China Daily app offers “a powerful mix of technology and innovation, with great clarity on audience needs,” said the judges.

The automotive sector will most likely be one of the first industries to rely

on 5G, connecting vehicles to other vehicles, roadsides, traffic lights, buildings and the inter

net to process data across cars or in the cloud, according to the report.

As 5G technology has integrated various industries and technologies, the number of 5G Stand

ards-Essential Patents applications surged to more than 60,000 globally by the end of April, the report said.

It is reported that the IS terrorist organization has clai

med it was behind the horrific attacks. Yet whoever the perpetrators, the attacks on innoc

ent people should be condemned in the strongest terms, and those responsible arrested and punished.

Since Sri Lanka has been facing some political and e

conomic problems, and increasingly acute social conf

licts for the past few years, the attacks seem to reveal not just sectarian disputes but also cer

tain people’s dissatisfaction with the situation in the island nation, and the rest of South Asia.

The motive behind the attacks could be helplessness and desperation of certain sections of Muslims in South Asia.

The rise of Islamic extremism has to some extent fueled the rise of white supremac

ist groups in the United States and some European countries. Perhaps the conflict between Islamic extremism and

the anti-Muslim forces today is greater than that immediately after the Sept 11, 2001, attacks in the US.

And the rising tensions in South Asia and other regions should prompt govern

ments to take sound measures to prevent the spread of extremism inside their borders.、
