gital trade-enabled productivity benefits to the Chinese economy estimated to reach 37 trillion yu

an ($5.5 trillion) by 2030,according to a report on how China can capture digital trade opportunities at home and abroad.

Wang Junsheng, an international relations expert with

the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, expressed his optimism about the second summit and said that given the DPRK’s announcement that it would shift its strate

gic focus to economic development, the country will likely make concessions on giving up its nuclear weapons during th

is summit in exchange for the lifting of sanctions and the declaration of the end of the war.

Wang said denuclearization is an irreversible trend.

But Jenny Town, a research analyst at the Stimson Center in Washington, worried that it will be difficul

t for the two leaders to generate a specific road map and schedule for denuclearization at a single summit.

Also on Wednesday, the Republic of Korea’s presidential Blue House spokesman sa

id, “Whatever concessions Trump and Kim may make at their upcoming summit will be significant as th

ey will mean further progress toward the complete denuclearization of Pyongyang.”

Trump met separately with Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Tro

ng and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc earlier on We

dnesday. Kim is likely to meet the Vietnamese leaders during his two-day “official goodwill” visit after the summit w

ith Trump, given the local media reports saying Kim would leave the country on Saturday.

Britney Spears Canceled All Singing Shows Britney Spears

Britney Spears posted on social networking website on May 5 that she would cancel all new concerts. The reason was that his father was seriously ill and hospitalized.

So she decided heavily to cancel the “Domination” singing show and devote the rest of her time to her family. Britney also said she had been looking forward to seeing everyone on the show and was heartbroken.

Britney Spears:

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.

I hope you all understand me. Ticket refund please log on my website. In the meantime, I sincerely thank you for your prayers and support for my family. Thank you, love you.

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.
