one right now. It’s the source of a lot of discussion in

Museums are not only there for enjoyment; they are education, and as such should be free.

While I can appreciate the enormous costs involved in maintainin

g and obtaining collections, let the wealthiest 1 percent of the country pay for it.

The Met in NYC is technically free; they ask you to give what you can afford. But the ide

a of a person or child interested in art not being able to view it because of cost is morally wrong.

Free entrance does not attract people, nor does it encourage them to appreciate it.

Sure, there are exceptions to this, but by and large human beings tend to look up to things that are difficult or costly to access.

A better option is to charge fees for regular visitors but provide free ti

ckets as prizes for high-achieving students and others who are likely to appreciate the reward.

Every Thursday, 95-year-old Wang Zhenyi hosts a discussio

he bank, said: “Using big data, artificial intelligence and internet technolo

gies, we built a platform based on real transactions to meet the financing needs of private

meet the needs of private enterprises and offer them a superior customer experience,” Shi said.

But Friday’s outrage in New Zealand was more about the

  cancer of race hate than guns. It is an evil that has been with us for long, but it seems the cancer is now metastatic-it is spreading. It is be

ing spread by white, right-wing bigots who see conspiracies around every corner, and by religious zealots that are found in most religions.

  In the summer of 2011, an anti-Islamic right-wing extremist killed 77 people in Norway in a planned terrorist attack.

  Recent years have seen a surge in white supremacist violence in the United States. Every terrorist killing in the US last ye

ar was linked to right-wing extremism, according to the New York-based Anti-Defamation League.

  And let us not forget the part social media have played in providing a platform for a

ll racists and terrorists to spread their evil bile and distorted views of the world. Terrorism experts will say Ne

w Zealand was probably a soft target. Most of its police officers are not armed and the threat of terrorism is not high. Bu

t terrorist attacks have also taken place in countries where police officers are heavily armed and security is very tight.

First, treat the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori or Hp) infection

lori is a bacterium that colonizes in the lining of the stomach. H. pylori is particularly prevalent in China. It is often picked up in childhood and survives in the aci

dic environment of the stomach for many years. It will often cause no symptoms although it may cause dyspepsia and indigestion. Long-term infect

ion with H. pylori will cause the stomach to become inflamed (gastritis) and can cause abnormal changes in the cells that line the stomach which over time

may become cancerous.  It is estimated that over 90 percent of all stomach cancers are attributable to H. py

lori infection.  Chronic H. pylori infection can also cause peptic ulcers and gastric lymphoma.

Studies show that successfully treating H. pylori infection with antibiotics lowers th

e risk of developing stomach cancer.  Ideally the infection should be treated in early a

dulthood (20s and 30s) before changes in the cells lining the stomach have started to occur.  H. pylori can be resist

ant to a number of antibiotics so most courses of treatment involve taking four different medications for a two-week cours

e.  Even the best courses of combination therapy have only a 90 percent success rate at eradicating the infec

tion. So it is a good advice to have a repeat test for H. pylori a month or so after completing a course of treatment.

H. pylori infection can be detected either by a special breath test, a stool test or at gastroscopy.
