According to Gong, however, the school was established to meet the demands of the booming crayfish industry in Qianjiang.
The crayfish industry, comprising breeding, cooking, processing and exporting the crustaceans, is the city’s leading sector.

Washington should admit that every country ha

Trump’s press secretary, Sarah Sanders, set the vituperative tone of a fight ag
ainst a Democratic majority seeking to expose the President as historically corrupt.
”Democrats have embarked on a fishing expedition because they are terrified that thei
r two year false narrative of ‘Russia collusion’ is crumbling,” Sanders said in a statement on Monday night. “The D
emocrats are not after the truth, they are after the President.”Sanders and everyone else inside the White House are about to end
ure the bitter, full-on misery of a multi-front oversight campaign. That means a blizzard of subpoenas, officials be
ing hauled up to Capitol Hill to testify under penalty of perjury and a mountain of legal bills.
But Trump has lived in the eye of such storms for much of his adult life, and he comes to the fight with certain advantages.
His clash with House Democrats will give him the foil in the form of his Democratic tormentors that he’s lacked ever s

”The last two years it was really bad, because I just forget who I am, I am just pretending (to be) like an Islamic girl,” says her 20-year-old sister, Reem.
They went to school, studied hard and avoided confrontation. Of course, the same rules d
idn’t apply to their brothers. Beat your sisters, the siblings say their brothers were told, it’ll make you better men.
Reem and Rawan are reluctant to talk about the abuse at the hands of their family. They say it
didn’t happen all the time, just enough to remind them of the rules. And enough to fill them with terror ab
out what might happen if anyone found out about their plan or, worse still, caught them carrying it out.
Whether it is filial piety to the elderly or rewarding children or themselves, trading volu
me has kept growing. Spending on entertainment and travel also grew fast,” said Chen Han, a data analyst at China UnionPay.
Consumption has become the biggest driver for the economy, contributing 76.2 percent of the co
untry’s economic growth last year, up 18.6 percentage points over the previous year, the National Bureau of Statistics said.
“Judging from major economic indicators, domestic demand has become a decisive force of China’s economic gro
wth,” said Wang Bin, deputy director-general of the ministry’s department of market operation and consumption promotion.
Several factors will support steady consumer spending growth in China. Residential inco

ernational Import Expo in Shanghai will also offer more access to global products, Wang said.
