he familiar discrediting of China’s policy toward the

 Uygurs in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

Which in itself is a worrying development since it may be the start of the US using the domestic affa

irs of other countries as a pretext to stifle the growth of foreign competitors to US companies.

Washington, of course, is trying to put the US on the high moral ground while embedding

its trade frictions with other countries into its political agenda and using its economic policy for its foreign policy aims.

In this way, it is hoping to achieve the colonization of the global

business world, allegedly under the banners of human rights, freedom and democracy.

If Washington really cared about the human rights situation in X

injiang, it would by no means ignore the development of the region. Over the past four

decades, the regions’ economy has increased more than 250 times, and the well-being of the Uygur people h

inesses and consumers will pay the cost amid hefty levies, which will eventually add significant pressure on the US economy.

The US government’s moves risk sparking a full-blown trade

war with China, and China is fully prepared for any possibility, Wei said.

Economists at Goldman Sachs said in a research note that recent data showed the costs of Washington’s tariffs on China last year

had fallen “entirely” on US businesses and households, with no clear reduction in prices charged by Chinese exporters.

The bank said that US consumer prices are higher, partly because Chinese exporters have not low

ered their prices to better compete in the US market. In addition, some US producers “op

portunistically” increased prices in response to protection from Chinese competitors, it said.

Democrats have said they may issue a subpoena to

try to force Barr to testify before their committee.

“The failure of Attorney General Barr to come to the hearing today is sim

ply another step in the administration’s growing attack on American democracy an

d its attack on the right of Congress” as a co-equal branch of government, Nadler said.

Barr spent four hours before a Republican-led Senate committee on Wednesday defen

ding his handling of Mueller’s report on Russia’s interference in the election to boost Trump’s ca

ndidacy and whether the president subsequently tried to obstruct Mueller’s probe.

Representative Doug Collins, the House Judiciary Committee’s top Republican, s

He told China Daily his company’s priority is to attract more peo

ple, especially non-locals, to visit and boost sales, as local consumption has limited potent

ial. The company is eyeing more business opportunities based on word-of-mouth among visitors, Long said.

This “one-stop industrial tourism”, as Long calls it, has contrib

uted more than 60 percent in total sales since his company started to feel out the market in 2005.

Long witnessed the company transform from a State-owned enterprise to a market-orient

ed limited company at the turn of century. By streamlining internal bodies and lifting the proportion of em

ployees involved in production while promoting its products via culture and tourism, costs can be cut, according to Long.

Now, he added, the annual production value of the company has reached 10 million yuan ($1.5 million).

Lu said JD’s individual parcel pickup business is main

ly concentrated in first and second-tier cities. “JD has missed the good opportunity to expand its third-party logisti

cs business, and there is little room for growth owing to the fierce competition in the segment.”

In October, JD launched parcel delivery services for individuals in 17

cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, and later extended it to 31 citie

s. In order to use the service, customers would ask for a pickup through the firm’s app.

Yang Daqing, a researcher at the China Society of Logistics, said such adjustm

West said he has been single for more than eight years

 and so far, he’s still enjoying it. “And I’ve been through bad relationships — they are horrible.”

He said his lifestyle is healthier when he is single, and he is also more focused on his own business than when in a relationship.

“But if I meet the right girl, then sure I’ll lay my cards on the table and go all in,” West added.

Just as West indicated, more studies now show that single people are becoming healthier, both mentally and physically.

A 2017 study published in the Journal of Women’s Health found that un

married women are living healthier than ever before. They had lower body mass indi

ces, waist sizes and risks related to smoking and alcohol, compared with married individuals.

“A bad marriage is actually a health risk — people who are unhappily married have highe

r blood pressure and lower immune systems than happily married or single people,” Coontz said.
