Conflict also disrupts growth. Although many conflic

icts appear to have a religious or ethnic basis, some scholars believe their root cause may be economic, with ethnic divisio

s serving as a way to exclude other groups from access to scarce resources and opportunities. Whatever its so

urce, inequality of opportunity has a highly disruptive effect on governance and hence growth.

But these obstacles are not insurmountable. For one th

ing, developing countries now have huge potential export markets in middle-inc

ome countries, and no longer depend entirely on advanced economies for access to global markets.

Belt and Road can play vital development role

There is also a renewed awareness of the importance of infrastructure in e

nabling growth. In addition to roads, railways and ports, electricity and digital conn

ectivity are crucial. In this regard, the rapid expansion of cellular wireless technology, combined with the install

ation of high-capacity undersea broadband pipes around Africa, represents major prog

Premier Li signs revised regulation on gov’t informati

Premier Li Keqiang has signed a revised regulation on the disclosure

of government information to better respond to public concerns.

The revision, based on the 2008 version, is aimed at increasing openness of government

affairs and resolving prominent problems in government information disclosure.

It also represents the headway and achievements made in this field over the past years and clarified the scope of governm

ent information disclosure, calling for constantly expanding information disclosure.

Stressing the need to improve the legal rights and interests of the a

pplicants and related parties when applying for information disclosure in accordance with pr

ocedures, the revision also made necessary stipulations on the improper exercise of application rights by a small num

ber of applicants affecting the normal conduct of government information disclosure.

Efforts should be made to improve the effectiveness of government information disclosure by using information techn

ology, to enable government information to play its due role in serving the people, it added.

In a spectacular display of indecision, the House of Comm

ons has voted against remaining in the EU and every version of leaving the EU,” tweeted James Cleverly, the Conservative Party’s deputy chairman.

Nevertheless, some proposals fared better than May’s deal had done two weeks ago, and parlia

ment was due to hold more indicative votes on Monday after refining the options most likely to secure a majority.

Many Conservative eurosceptics had made clear they would only c

onsider supporting May’s deal if she gave a firm commitment to resign, hoping a new leader

would be more sympathetic to their views when negotiating the terms of Britain’s future relationship with the EU.

“I have heard very clearly the mood of the parliamentary party,” May told a meeting of Conservative lawmakers (MPs).

“I know there is a desire for a new approach – and new lead

ership – in the second phase of the Brexit negotiations – and I won’t stand in the way of that.”

But within hours of May’s offer, the Democratic Unionist Party, which props up her minority gov

ernment, said it would vote against the deal if May brought it back a third time.

How the Wagah border post became a symbol of India

  Military tensions in the disputed region of Kashmir have erupted in recent

weeks, with India and Pakistan painting different versions of events.

  One thing we do know for certain is that an Indian pilot, identified as Wing Commander Abhinandan, was captured by Pakistan aft

er his plane was shot down in a dogfight earlier this week between Pakistani and Indian warplanes over the ceasefire line in Kashmir.

  He was due to be handed back to India on Friday afternoon, at a famous border post in the village of Wagah.

  While Indian-controlled Kashmir and Pakistani-controlled Kashmir are separate

d by a 435-mile de facto border known as the Line of Control (LoC), Wagah village sits on the international fron

tier to the south between the Pakistani city of Lahore and the Indian city of Amritsar.

  Wagah straddles the border — with the eastern half in India and the western half in Paki

stan — and sits on the Grand Trunk Road, one of the main overland routes between the two nations.

  Pakistani rangers (L) and Indian security forces (R) perform the daily Beating Retreat ceremony at Wagah in August 2017.

  The border post has taken on a symbolic role in the decades-long conflict over Kashmir, despite be

ing outside the disputed region, thanks to a daily military parade known as the Beating Retreat ceremony.

  Every evening there for 60 years, Pakistan’s Rangers and India’s Border Securit

y Force have taken part in a lowering-of-the-flags ceremony before sunset, typically around 4 p.m. local time.

The Spring Festival Gala in 2019 is expected to

In a few weeks, the Spring Festival is coming, and we all look forward to it. During this period, we can rarely have a rest and get together with our families for a while. We can

also see relatives and friends we haven’t seen in a year. We all cherish this time. During this period, the most important program that everyone

cares about is the Spring Festival Gala. During the Spring Festival, the family sits together to watch the program and enjoy the rare time of reunion.

Even many families regard it as a ritual, which is indispensable every year. It is for this reason that the Spring Festival Gala is the most po

pular program every year. Everyone is particularly concerned about which program can be on, which actor will appear, and what kind of performance you can see. In the atmosphere of people’s special ex

pectations, a message suddenly came out: “The Spring Festival Gala in 2019 is expected to resume true singing.” Everyone was surp

rised to see the news. No one thought it had been lip-synching on this program. Netizens said that we had been deceived for so many years.

In fact, in the past few years, such news has come out, in thi

s stage, many singers in the performance, there will be obvious mistakes, such as the microphone has not yet picked up the voice, or the microphone has turned back but there is still voice. There are even many singers who h

ave said this on the show. Like Da Zhangwei on a program, it means that he was lip-synching on this stage, because his song rhythm is faster, it is easy to make mistakes, in o

rder to avoid such a situation, the program group let him record ahead of time, in the performance of the lip-synching can be. On his scene, he can make mistakes, but it is not allowed on this stage.

Many people have expressed their understanding of this situation, because the stage is too important, these programs are for th

e national audience, so the program group does not want to let any mistakes in the program, especially in the singing category, it is impo

ssible to adjust after the mistakes occur. Therefore, before the program, the singer must record, or even record many times,

select the best one to broadcast on the stage. Let go. But this is not true, in fact, the idea of the program is good, but they do not understand

the audience, for the audience, we all want to hear a more real scene, even some mistakes can be understood.

Between 83 and 93, the stage was full of lip-synching, not only that, but also tapes, which would be replaced immediately if there were any mi

stakes in recording. In 1994, the crew began to try real singing. Since then, real singing and lip-synching have been mixed up. So after that, you can hear some mistakes, and even the singer has gone out of tune.

In fact, whether it is true singing or lip-synching, it is for the audience, lip-synching is to avoid

mistakes, so that the audience can see the most perfect performance, and real singing is for more real performance, but also for the respect

of the audience, we did not want to see mistakes on this stage before, because this stage is too important, the audience is too wide, if there are mistakes, sure. There will be dissatisfaction.
