The news conference came days after the family’s lawyer, Steve Beckett, announced that he had learned from Brendt Christensen’s defense team that Zha

But Beckett explained in gruesome detail on Wednesday why that might never hap

Christensen, 30, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison last month in the June 2017 kidnap

ping and killing of Zhang Yingying, a 26-year-old visiting Chinese scholar at the University of Illinois.上海会所

Beckett explained that, after Christensen was convicted, prosecutors explained to the Zhan

g family and their lawyers what Christensen’s attorneys said he told them about what he had done.上海会所品茶微信

“He told them after killing her, he placed her remains in three separate garbage bags,” Beckett said.

He said Christensen told his attorneys that he tossed the bags i上海会所

nto a dumpster near his apartment before he disposed of her clothes, cellphone and other of her pers

onal items in dumpsters around the area, which is about 120 miles (195 kilometers) southwest of Chicago.

上海会所品茶微信Sanitation workers emptied the dumpster that purportedly contained the victim’s

remains a few days later and took the contents to a landfill in the Danville area, where they were co

mpacted “at least twice” before being taken to a private landfill and covered with least 30 feet (9 meters) of trash.上海会所

He said that although authorities have a general idea of

where the remains might be, recovering them would be expensive and difficult. 上海会所品茶微信

Such an effort would also be complicated by environmental rules regarding digging at landf

ills and the fact that the remains have certainly decomposed and are believed to be “very small in size.”

The major stock indexe上海乌托邦Dow Jones Industrial

Average, Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 – closed up more than 1 percent each Tuesday.

上海乌托邦After Monday’s selloff, the biggest of the year, Tuesday’s rebound of 312 points put the Dow at 26,023.

On Monday, the Dow lost 767.27 points, or 2.9 percent, after US President Donald Trump called China a currency manipulator.

“There is more uncertainty in the global environment,” Usha Haley, the W. Frank Barton Distinguished Chair in In上海乌托邦

ternational Business and a professor of management at Wichita State University, told China Daily. “It does not contribute t

上海乌托邦女神会所o planning or investment in the global economy and doesn’t benefit China or the US. We’re in uncharted territory.”

“Most investors and traders do not find meaningful the designation of currency manipulator and most belie

ve it is unlikely to foster successful negotiations,” Andrew Karolyi, a finance professor at Cornell University, told Ch上海乌托邦

ina Daily. “Fluctuations in the yuan continue to reflect market supply and demand pressures and have for several y

ears. I would not rule out a US-China trade deal before the end of 2019 or early 2020. There are incentives in both co

上海乌托邦女神会所untries to stabilize trade flows and ease the burden of trade policy uncertainty.”

But Trump may be able to use the currency-manipulation charge to his advantage, one expert said.

“Unfortunately, the declaration that China is a currency manipulator can be used by the pr上海乌托邦女神会所

esident as a reason to take further unilateral actions against China,” Steve Charles Kyle, an economics pr

ofessor at Cornell University, told China Daily. “It is clearly bad news for both the USA and China. The USA will see highe

上海乌托邦r prices as tariffs take effect, and China will see fewer exports as the US buys less and also as production moves elsewhere.”

Third-generation technologies set to keep industry on even keel in nation, say experts

上海楼凤品茶微信China’s growing clean power demand has boosted the rapid development of nuclear power in the c

ountry, making it among the few in the world to have independently developed third-g

eneration nuclear power technology, with a complete industry chain, industry experts said.上海楼凤

The first two reactor units using China’s homegrown third-generation nuclear reactor techn

ology Hualong One, or the No 5 and 6 reactors in Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant in Fuzhou, Fujian province, are ex

上海楼凤品茶微信pected to avoid time overruns, creating a record in the construction of the first reactor in a nuclear power project.

Currently, key goals in the construction of the No 5 reactor have all been fulfilled on or ahead of sch

edule, while devices necessary for the No 6 reactor have been prepared as per schedule, said Zhou Sai上海楼凤

jun, deputy chief engineer of the power plant affiliated to China National Nuclear Corp, or CNNC.

Hualong One technology, jointly designed by CNNC and China General Nucl上海楼凤品茶微信

ear Power Group, adopts a double-layered containment system that can withstand la

rge aircraft attacks, and has a water tank above the reactor that can be gravity-fed to keep the reactor cool.

Fuqing’s No 5 reactor will start hot functional tests before Oct 16

and is expected to go into commer上海楼凤品茶微信cial operation in July next year. The No 6 reactor is sc

heduled to start cold functional tests next April and slated to commence commercial operations in 2021, Zhou said.

上海楼凤Cold functional tests are carried out to confirm whether the circuit system and i

ts supporting facilities are properly installed and ready to operate under high-pre

上海楼凤ssure conditions. A hot functional test is a critical pre-operational test that simulates the tempera

tures and pressures the reactor systems will be subjected to during normal operation.

The No 2 and 3 nuclear reactors in Karachi, Pakistan, using H上海楼凤品茶微信

ualong One technology, are also making construction progress as per schedule.

Baghdadi’s own experience confirmed this. Replies flooded in after he posted a message on Facebook, stating: “Hello fro上海夜生活女神会所

When US President Don上海千花网p assumed office in Jan

anuary 2017, he pledged GDP growth at 4 percent. More recently, he projected

上海千花网女神会所US growth at 3 percent. Yet analysts estimate US growth this year at 2.5 percent or less. Quali

tative assessments suggest deterioration, as the growth of domestic demand is slumping.

Worse, US GDP growth forecasts for 2020 indicate softening to 1.8 per上海千花网

cent, possibly a (near-recession) slowdown-especially if trade and tech wars still

escalate. In the absence of negative surprises, China’s GDP growth is lik

上海千花网ely to stay within the target of 6.2 percent in 2019 and possibly in 2020 as well, with

supportive fiscal and monetary conditions. US tariff wars are likely to penalize the Chinese economy by less

上海千花网女神会所than 0.5 percent of GDP, which could be offset by just a modest depreciation of the renminbi.

If recent policy mistakes in the White House prevail, slower growth in i

nvestment spending, rising concern for continued trade wars and destabilizing geopolitics are likely to foster downside上海千花网

risks in global economic prospects, as risks for further downgrades morph into actual realities.

hina set to further boos上海后花园umptionThe State Co

uncil’s executive meeting on July 31, chaired by Premier Li Keqiang, identified a number of measures to boost cons

上海后花园女神会所umption of goods, culture and tourism to better meet public needs and further unleash the potential in final demand.

The Chinese government puts great emphasis on boosting commerce and consum

ption. General Secretary Xi Jinping said that final consumption serves as a sustainable driver of eco上海后花园

nomic growth. It is crucial to build greater capacity of effective supply, enhance the basic role of consumption in e

上海后花园女神会所conomic development and shape a vibrant domestic market by providing new and higher quality supply. Premier Li

Keqiang stressed the need to stay adaptive to the trends in consumption upgrading, increase supply while fost

ering a more enabling business environment, and promote stable consumption growth.上海后花园

In the first half of this year, retail sales of consumer goods in China

上海后花园女神会所reached 19.5 trillion yuan ($2.83 trillion). Consumption contributed as much as

60.1 percent to the country’s GDP growth and remains the most powerful growth engine.

“Government departments should enhance guidance and policy support, work out more w上海后花园

ays to spur business activities, and provide greater convenience to consumers,” Premier Li said.

上海后花园女神会所The meeting said that, in response to the trends in commercial transformation and consumption upgrading, the use of t

echnologies such as big data will be encouraged, and consumption of individu

alized goods and services, smart consumption and other new models of businesses will get a boost.上海后花园

Traditional shopping malls and aging factory buildings can be conver

上海后花园女神会所ted into new types of consumption facilities for multiple, comprehensive p

urposes. Pedestrian shopping areas can be renovated in light of local conditions.

China has created and approved 139 new drugs to treat difficult illnesses such as tumors, HIV and diabetes since 2008,上海千花网女神会所

giving more patients greater access to affordable and effective medication, officials said on Wednesday.

上海千花网Of the certified new drugs, 44 are Class 1 new drugs – innovative medicine containin

g new chemical substances with clinical value that have never been marketed before.

Some prominent examples include Albuvirtide, China’s first and t上海千花网女神会所

he world’s second HIV inhibitor that entered the Chinese market last year, and C

arrimycin, the world’s first antibiotic created using synthetic biology that can be used in clinical treatments.

上海千花网The drugs were developed under a project carried out by the Ministry of Science and Techn

ology and the National Health Commission and approved by the State Council, China’s Cabinet, in 2008.

Liu Dengfeng, the deputy director of the project’s administration and manag

erial office, said it has yielded reliable and affordable new drugs for patients su上海千花网女神会所

ffering from major health threats, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, hepatitis and diabetes.

上海千花网女神会所The project has also helped establish a preliminary ecosystem

for pharmaceutical innovation that facilitated the commercialization of s

cientific and technological output from research institutes, universities and companies via policy support.

This has significantly improved China’s capability in producing original, groundbrea上海千花网

king pharmaceutical research, especially in major diseases and pediatric medications, he said.

上海千花网女神会所Liu said the next step is to push for these new drugs to be covered b

y medical insurance, making them even more accessible to the public.
