South Korea, US sign cost-sharing deal for American troops

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea and the United States struck a new deal Sunday that increases Seoul’s contribut

ion for the cost of the American military presence on its soil, overcoming previous fai

led negotiations that caused worries about their decades-long alliance.

The development comes as President Donald Trump is set to hold his second summit w

ith North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam in late February.

South Korea last year provided about $830 million, covering roughly 40 percent of the cost of the deployment of 28,

500 U.S. soldiers whose presence is meant to deter aggression from North K

orea. Trump has pushed for South Korea to pay more.

On Sunday, chief negotiators from the two countries signed a new cost-sharing pla

n, which requires South Korea to pay about 1.04 trillion won ($924 million) in 2019, Seoul’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The statement said the two countries reaffirmed the need for a “stable” U.S. mili

tary deployment amid the “rapidly changing situation on the Korean Peni

nsula.” The ministry said the U.S. assured Sou

th Korea that it is committed to the alliance and has no plans to adjust the number of its troops in South Korea.

Linyi University ranks 405 in the best university rank

Recently, with a 16-year-old “ARWU” ranking, China’s best universities ranked in 2019. There are 549 universities in China. The top three are still occupied by Tsinghua University, Peking University and Zhejiang University. The criteria for this evaluation are to set up four di

mensions: personnel training, scientific research, social service and internationalization. Bid, including freshmen’s college entrance examination res

ults, graduate employment rate, the number and quality of papers to reflect objectively.

In this list, Shandong University ranked 23rd, becoming the highest ranking uni

versity in Shandong Province, while China Ocean University ranked 67th and Ch

ina Petroleum University ranked 82, ranking among the top 100 universities in the other two 211 universities.

Linyi University, which is most concerned by Linyi people, ranks 405, la

gging behind Yantai University and Liaocheng University in the same pr

ovince. However, compared with last year’s ranking, Linyi University has increased 62 places.

As the largest single campus in China, Lin

yi University has become a key university trained by the Ministry of Education of Shandong Province since its es

tablishment. It has abundant teaching talents. Last year, Linyi University won many awards in the fifth “Super Star Cup

” and other young teachers’teaching competitions of universities in Shandong Province. The University also won the aw

ard of “the most influential undergraduate colleges in Shandong in 2018”.

In addition, the Shandong Institute of Business and Logistics has been estab

lished to better serve the development of business and logistics indus

try. Linyi University has also made many achievements in the field of education in the past year.

Last September, Tsinghua University ranked first in Asia, replacing Singapore Nation

al University as the highest ranking institution in Asia, while Peking University ranked 30th and third in Asia.

But the top 20 are basically occupied by the Un

ited States and Britain, so there is still a lot of room for improvement for domestic colleges and universities.

I don’t know where to start, because it’s too hard for me to talk about. I can’t perform my new “Domination” singing show.

I’ve been looking forward to this rookie for a year, and I hope to see all of you, so this decision breaks my heart. However, my family has always been my first priority.

So that’s the choice I have to make. A few months ago, my father was hospitalized and passed through the ghost gates. We are all grateful to him for surviving.

But there is still a long way to go to recover. I have to make tough decisions, and now I will focus all my attention and energy on my family.

According to the Tianfu Morning Post, Zhou Dongping, a lawyer of

According to the Tianfu Morning Post, Zhou Dongping, a lawyer of Chengdu Taihe Tai Law Firm, said:

“According to the relevant provisions, the number of days of annual leave that

should not be taken can be compensated by three times the daily wage.”

About half of workers enjoy paid annual leave

As for holidays, there is a widely circulated saying: “Europeans work for better holidays, while Chinese people

spend their holidays for better work.”

As early as 1936, France established relevant laws and became the first

country in the world to establish a paid annual leave system.

Until 1995, the Chinese also had the same rights. The Labor Law, which was

formally implemented that year, stipulated that workers who worked

continuously for more than one year were entitled to paid annual leave.

By 2008, the Regulations on Annual Vacation with Pay for Employees were promulgated and implemented, which

stipulated the specific number of vacation days: if the cumulative work of employees has been completed for less than one year and less than 10 years, the

annual vacation time will be 5 days; if the work has been completed for less than 10

years and 20 years, the annual vacation

time will be 10 days; if the work has been completed for 20 years, the annual vacation time will be 15 days

Up to now, it has been more than ten years since the promulgation of the

Regulations on Annual Leave with Pay for Employees, but the implementation is not satisfactory. According to Nanfang.com:

Since 2012, Zhao Lihang has worked in a clothing factory in Baoding, Hebei

Province. During her six years of work, she has never heard of the term “paid annual vacation” or enjoyed this

treatment. “In our industry, overtime pay is enough. If there is no paid annual vacation, there will be no such thing.”

Xiao Huang, who works in Beijing Branch of a daily chemical company in Zhejiang Province, knows that the head

office stipulates paid annual leave, but the leave must be approved by the head of the branch company. The head of the

branch company usually does not approve the leave, so he has not asked for paid annual leave. According to his wife’s response: “The day after I gave birth, the

company urged him to go to work and asked for leave without approval, and then withheld 400 yuan.”

Survey data from several authoritative bodies confirm the above cases:

The annual survey conducted by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Affairs in 60 cities shows that more than

half of the employees enjoy paid annual leave, and the proportion of those who take leave increases year by year. But in general, the implementation of paid

annual leave system is not ideal, there are still a considerable number of enterprises have not implemented paid annual leave.

A survey of 2552 workers conducted by the Tourism Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences

showed that 40.1% of respondents said they did not have paid annual leave.

The Social Survey Center of China Youth Daily once conducted a social survey of

4,325 people. 50.4% of the respondents said that their units never took paid vacations.

The data also show that the implementation of paid annual leave is better mainly for Party and government

organs, institutions, large state-owned enterprises

and foreign-funded enterprises,

while private enterprises

and small and medium-sized

enterprises are relatively poor.

Is fame to be only for the ancients?

Wang Wei
A MESSAGE TO COMMISSIONER LI AT ZIZHOU
From ten thousand valleys the trees touch heaven;
On a thousand peaks cuckoos are calling;
And, after a night of mountain rain,
From each summit come hundreds of silken cascades.
…If girls are asked in tribute the fibre they weave,
Or farmers quarrel over taro fields,
Preside as wisely as Wenweng did….
Is fame to be only for the ancients?


Wang Wei
A VIEW OF THE HAN RIVER
With its three southern branches reaching the Chu border,
And its nine streams touching the gateway of Jing,
This river runs beyond heaven and earth,
Where the colour of mountains both is and is not.
The dwellings of men seem floating along
On ripples of the distant sky —
These beautiful days here in Xiangyang
Make drunken my old mountain heart!


Wang Wei
MY RETREAT AT MOUNT ZHONGNAN
My heart in middle age found the Way.
And I came to dwell at the foot of this mountain.
When the spirit moves, I wander alone
Amid beauty that is all for me….
I will walk till the water checks my path,
Then sit and watch the rising clouds —
And some day meet an old wood-cutter
And talk and laugh and never return.


Meng Haoran
A MESSAGE FROM LAKE DONGTIN
TO PREMIER ZHANG
Here in the Eighth-month the waters of the lake
Are of a single air with heaven,
And a mist from the Yun and Meng valleys
Has beleaguered the city of Youzhou.
I should like to cross, but I can find no boat.
…How ashamed I am to be idler than you statesmen,
As I sit here and watch a fisherman casting
And emptily envy him his catch.


Meng Haoran
ON CLIMBING YAN MOUNTAIN WITH FRIENDS
While worldly matters take their turn,
Ancient, modern, to and fro,
Rivers and mountains are changeless in their glory
And still to be witnessed from this trail.
Where a fisher-boat dips by a waterfall,
Where the air grows colder, deep in the valley,
The monument of Yang remains;
And we have wept, reading the words.


 

Throughout this dynasty no one had painted horses

Du Fu

A DRAWING OF A HORSE BY GENERAL CAO

AT SECRETARY WEI FENG’S HOUSE

Throughout this dynasty no one had painted horses

Like the master-spirit, Prince Jiangdu —

And then to General Cao through his thirty years of fame

The world’s gaze turned, for royal steeds.

He painted the late Emperor’s luminous white horse.

For ten days the thunder flew over Dragon Lake,

And a pink-agate plate was sent him from the palace-

The talk of the court-ladies, the marvel of all eyes.

The General danced, receiving it in his honoured home

After this rare gift, followed rapidly fine silks

From many of the nobles, requesting that his art

Lend a new lustre to their screens.

…First came the curly-maned horse of Emperor Taizong,

Then, for the Guos, a lion-spotted horse….

But now in this painting I see two horses,

A sobering sight for whosoever knew them.

They are war- horses. Either could face ten thousand.

They make the white silk stretch away into a vast desert.

And the seven others with them are almost as noble

Mist and snow are moving across a cold sky,

And hoofs are cleaving snow-drifts under great trees-

With here a group of officers and there a group of servants.

See how these nine horses all vie with one another-

The high clear glance, the deep firm breath.

…Who understands distinction? Who really cares for art?

You, Wei Feng, have followed Cao; Zhidun preceded him.

…I remember when the late Emperor came toward his Summer Palace,

The procession, in green-feathered rows, swept from the eastern sky —

Thirty thousand horses, prancing, galloping,

Fashioned, every one of them, like the horses in this picture….

But now the Imperial Ghost receives secret jade from the River God,

For the Emperor hunts crocodiles no longer by the streams.

Where you see his Great Gold Tomb, you may hear among the pines

A bird grieving in the wind that the Emperor’s horses are gone.

What are you thinking of, old friend? The wildgeese never answer me.

Du Fu
REMEMBERING MY BROTHERS ON A MOONLIGHT NIGHT
A wanderer hears drums portending battle.
By the first call of autumn from a wildgoose at the border,
He knows that the dews tonight will be frost.
…How much brighter the moonlight is at home!
O my brothers, lost and scattered,
What is life to me without you?
Yet if missives in time of peace go wrong —
What can I hope for during war?


Du Fu
TO LI BAI AT THE SKY SEND
A cold wind blows from the far sky….
What are you thinking of, old friend?
The wildgeese never answer me.
Rivers and lakes are flooded with rain.
…A poet should beware of prosperity,
Yet demons can haunt a wanderer.
Ask an unhappy ghost, throw poems to him
Where he drowned himself in the Milo River.


Du Fu
A FAREWELL AT FENGJI STATION TO GENERAL YAN
This is where your comrade must leave you,
Turning at the foot of these purple mountains….
When shall we lift our cups again, I wonder,
As we did last night and walk in the moon?
The region is murmuring farewell
To one who was honoured through three reigns;
And back I go now to my river-village,
Into the final solitude.


Du Fu
ON LEAVING THE TOMB OF PREMIER FANG
Having to travel back now from this far place,
I dismount beside your lonely tomb.
The ground where I stand is wet with my tears;
The sky is dark with broken clouds….
I who played chess with the great Premier
Am bringing to my lord the dagger he desired.
But I find only petals falling down,
I hear only linnets answering.


Du Fu
A NIGHT ABROAD
A light wind is rippling at the grassy shore….
Through the night, to my motionless tall mast,
The stars lean down from open space,
And the moon comes running up the river.
…If only my art might bring me fame
And free my sick old age from office! —
Flitting, flitting, what am I like
But a sand-snipe in the wide, wide world!


Du Fu
ON THE GATE-TOWER AT YOUZHOU
I had always heard of Lake Dongting —
And now at last I have climbed to this tower.
With Wu country to the east of me and Chu to the south,
I can see heaven and earth endlessly floating.
…But no word has reached me from kin or friends.
I am old and sick and alone with my boat.
North of this wall there are wars and mountains —
And here by the rail how can I help crying?
