. “Adding to that noise doesn’t do anything to support or help the efforts that are going on here in Portland,” he said.

The NDRC said in the recent media interview that Chin

na will adhere to the principle of fair and free trade in its management of rare-earth ex

ports, but “the Chinese people will be unhappy” if the country’s exported rare-earth metals are used against China.

Since the start of the China-US trade friction more than a year ago, Washington has taken many measures, includin

g taking advantage of its edge in high-end chip making, to stymie Chinese high-tech firms, the NDRC said.

The NDRC added that in its latest move to dampen China’s industrial development, the US governme

nt has used an executive order to effectively ban products of Chinese tech giant Huawei from being use

d in the US, which has been widely seen as unreasonable and unfair. Having been increasingly used in high-tech ind

ustries, rare-earth metals are critical in making products from advanced weaponry to chips and hybrid cars.

Improved earnings of companies listed on mainland bourses during the first quarter of the year augur well for the full-ye

ar financial results and are an indication of the vitality the Chinese economy, analysts said.

During the January to March period, aggregate profits of A-share compan

ies topped 1 trillion yuan ($147.6 billion) and grew 9.4 percent year-on-year, reversing a fu

ll-year decline of 1.9 percent last year, data from Shanghai-based information provider Wind Info showed.

Meanwhile, aggregate return on equity (ROE)-a major gauge of

profitability-stood at 9.8 percent, intact from the whole-year of 2018.

“Given that the downtrend in economic growth had largely eased by the end of the first quarter, the aggregate ROE of A-shar

Another outbreak in Shaanxi province caused the dea

Pandas are docile but can be fierce. In 2005, a female photographer from Hong Kong jumped into a pand

a enclosure to take photos. To the surprise of onlookers, the panda slashed one of her arms, causing profuse bleeding, the center said.

Zhou Mengqi, a veteran photographer in Chengdu, was chased by a panda that had been eating quietly unt

“Its claw touched my shoes before I escaped through a door,” he said.

China has a total of 548 captive pandas. Of those, 285 are in the China Conser

vation and Research Center for the Giant Panda and 196 live at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.

The national landmark has received thousands of visitors

from China and overseas since it opened in 1968. Leaders from more than 70 countries and over 600 delegations from 150 nations have visited it.

During the three days it reopened to the public before taking road traffic in December, the bridge had more than 200,000 visitors.

The 4,589-meter-long structure reopened after 27 months of repairs. As China’s first home-designed road and rail truss bridge, it has been p

raised and loved by many. A truss bridge is one whose load-bearing superstructure is composed of connected elements forming triangular units.

Liu Yong, 63, a retired teacher from Nanjing, said he was in elementary school when the bridge first op

ened. Without telling his parents and teachers, he and his classmates walked more than 10 kilometers to see it.

“It was the most magnificent structure I had ever seen. When our relatives visited Nanjing, we

took them to see the bridge instead of visiting other well-known places of interest,” Liu said.

Zhou Lei, who lives in a residential community near the bridge, said that when he was an elementary school student in Ya

ncheng, Jiangsu, his father promised him that he would take him to see the bridge if he had high scores in his final exam.

The government had also warned pro-Brexit politicians th

?that rejecting May’s deal could see Brexit delayed indefinitely.

The promises moved some previously resistant Brexit-backers to support the deal. Former Forei

gn Secretary Boris Johnson — a likely contender to replace May as Conservative Party leader — twe

eted that rejecting it risked “being forced to accept an even worse version of Brexit or losing Brexit altogether.”

But the Democratic Unionist Party in Northern Ireland, with 10 seats in the House

of Commons, has refused to back the agreement because it treats Northern Ireland differently from the rest of the UK.

Parliament voted on the legally binding, 585-page withdrawal agreement that May agreed upon with the EU late las

t year. It set out the terms of Britain’s departure — including its financial divorce settlement with the EU and the rights of EU and U.K. cit

izens after Brexit — but not a shorter declaration on future ties, which is also part of the agreed-upon divorce deal.

Removing the political declaration from the Brexit vote altered the deal enough to over

come a parliamentary ban against asking lawmakers the same question over and over again.
