Earlier last month, another incident involving foreign teachers caused outrage, when 16 foreign nationals－se
ven teachers from the Xuzhou branch of EF Education First and nine stu新亚博体育注册楼凤女神会所
dents from nearby schools－were among 19 people detained in Xuzhou, Jiangsu pro

新亚博体育注册楼凤ing, issued a statement saying that it forbids employees to possess or use narcotics or controlled substances, and th

The incidents triggered a flood of posts on social media platforms, with some dema新亚博体育注册楼凤女神会所
nding that the establishments be closed, while others called for the teachers to be deported.
But even if that happens, more foreign teachers will follow in their wake because the soaring de新亚博体育注册楼凤
mand for English-language teachers means that finding a job is little more than a formality for many foreigners.
Last year, 300 million people in China were learning English, according to the Chinese Acad
新亚博体育注册楼凤女神会所emy of Social Sciences, which noted that there were 50,000 English-language teaching estab
lishments in the country and the market was worth as much as 500 billion yuan ($71 billion).
However, according to the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs, of the 400,000 foreign nationals wo新亚博体育注册楼凤
rking in China’s education sector in 2017, more than 60 percent were reported to be illegally employed.
According to a regulation issued by SAFEA, all foreign teachers mu新亚博体育注册楼凤女神会所
st hold a valid work visa, be a native speaker with a bachelor’s degree or higher and have at le

Third-generation technologies set to keep industry on even keel in nation, say experts
新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信China’s growing clean power demand has boosted the rapid development of nuclear power in the c
ountry, making it among the few in the world to have independently developed third-g
eneration nuclear power technology, with a complete industry chain, industry experts said.新亚博体育注册楼凤
The first two reactor units using China’s homegrown third-generation nuclear reactor techn
ology Hualong One, or the No 5 and 6 reactors in Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant in Fuzhou, Fujian province, are ex
新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信pected to avoid time overruns, creating a record in the construction of the first reactor in a nuclear power project.
Currently, key goals in the construction of the No 5 reactor have all been fulfilled on or ahead of sch
edule, while devices necessary for the No 6 reactor have been prepared as per schedule, said Zhou Sai新亚博体育注册楼凤
jun, deputy chief engineer of the power plant affiliated to China National Nuclear Corp, or CNNC.
Hualong One technology, jointly designed by CNNC and China General Nucl新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信
ear Power Group, adopts a double-layered containment system that can withstand la
rge aircraft attacks, and has a water tank above the reactor that can be gravity-fed to keep the reactor cool.
Fuqing’s No 5 reactor will start hot functional tests before Oct 16
and is expected to go into commer新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信cial operation in July next year. The No 6 reactor is sc
heduled to start cold functional tests next April and slated to commence commercial operations in 2021, Zhou said.
新亚博体育注册楼凤Cold functional tests are carried out to confirm whether the circuit system and i
ts supporting facilities are properly installed and ready to operate under high-pre
新亚博体育注册楼凤ssure conditions. A hot functional test is a critical pre-operational test that simulates the tempera
tures and pressures the reactor systems will be subjected to during normal operation.
The No 2 and 3 nuclear reactors in Karachi, Pakistan, using H新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信

WASHINGTON – The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Senate’s version of t
新亚博体育注册楼凤he emergency border funding bill after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reversed course amid pressure from
新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信moderate Democrats to tackle the migrant surge along the US-Mexico border immediately.
The Democrat-controlled House voted 305 to 102. Senate Maj
ority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump supports the Senate bill.
“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluct新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信
antly pass the Senate bill,” Pelosi wrote in a statement before the Thursday voting.
“The children come first,” Pelosi said. “At the end of the day, we
have to make sure that the resources needed to protect the children are available.”
新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信The sudden setback for Pelosi came amid heavy pressure from moderate Democ
ratic lawmakers who are seen as most vulnerable at the 2020 U.S. general elections, local analysts said.
House Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democratic leader of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told Pelosi Thur
