Footage of the attack on one of the mosques was broa

  dcast live on Facebook, and a “manifesto” denouncing immigrants as

“invaders” was also posted online via links to related social media accounts.

  It is customary in Islam to bury the dead within 24 hours but no bodies have

been released because of the investigation, police said.

  Arden said bodies would be handed over to families from Sunday evening.

  ”It is likely, however, to be a small number to begin with,” she told a media

briefing, adding that all should be returned by Wednesday.

  Ardern said police would be posted at all mosques while they are open.

  Police Commissioner Mike Bush said the body of the 50th victim was found at

the Al Noor mosque, where more than 40 people

died after a gunman entered and shot at people with a semi-automatic rifle with

high-capacity magazines, before travelling to a second mosque.

Some joked that students would just cook and eat crayf

  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.

  It employs an estimated 130,000-150,000 people, accounting for more than half of the local workforce, Gong said.

  Washington should admit that every country ha

s a justified right to develop and most countries c

an make their own choices independently, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Monday.

  ”More and more people have shown an increasingly just at

titude toward Chinese technology companies’ participation in 5G network construction. The

United States should not feel uneasy about this,” ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a news conference in Beijing.

Trump responded on Tuesday according to his creed, with a

  promise of all-out confrontation and a searing blast at his enemies.

  ”It’s a disgrace. It’s a disgrace to our country,” he said, accusing Democrats of being consu

med by anger at their loss in 2016, and framing the coming fight as an extension of his 2020 re-election campaign.

  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

ince his 2016 campaign. This President is always most effective with an enemy to define himself against.

Defense spending poses no threat to other nations, spokesm

China’s defense expenditure is for the protection of the nation’s sover

eignty, security and territorial integrity and does not pose any threat to other countries, ac

cording to Zhang Yesui, spokesman for the second session of the 13th National People’s Congress.

Zhang said at a news conference on Monday in Beijing that China always sticks

to the path of peaceful development and follows policies that are purely defensive in nature.

“To judge whether a country poses threat to other

nations, the key lies in its foreign and defense policies rather than the increase in its defense budget,” he said.

He made the remarks in response to a question on China’s perspective change to its defense budget this year.

The dinner session was thought to serve as a tone

setting test for the formal talks scheduled on Thursday morning, which may decide the future of

a peace process that has been stalled after the two leaders’ Singapore summit in June.

On Wednesday, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that Beij

ing hopes the Hanoi summit between Kim and Trump will take an important ste

p forward to achieve denuclearization and establish a peace mechanism on the Korean Peninsula.

“China expects the meeting between leaders of the DPRK and the US will continue moving

forward in the direction of the ‘dual-track’ approach,” Wang said at a news conference after the 16th me

eting of the foreign ministers of China, Russia and India in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province.

Analysts have described Kim and Trump’s Singapore summit as focused on breaking the ice to p

ave the way for full-scale diplomacy on denuclearization, improved ties and a formal conclusion to the

war on the Korean Peninsula, going beyond the armistice reached in 1953. Now the two nations are facing a more da

unting task of attempting to reach specific deals over details, going beyond a vaguely worded joint statement, they said.

Du Zhenqing, the actor playing the title role, said this play

  has been the biggest challenge in his over-40-year acting career. “I need to ful

ly grasp the Greek co-actors’ lines to keep the plot flowing. The director is very cre

ative and actively thinking. He integrates a lot of physical movements into the performance – It’s like nothing yo

u have seen in China, which creates a very unique experience for our audience.”

  ”Agamemnon shows remarkable directorial skills. Language, movement and

music, all the elements come together perfectly. It’s a joy to watch,” sai

d Luo Jinlin, renowned theater director and professor at the Central Academy of Drama.

  The production design and choreography also left a deep impression on the audience. “Co

mbining modernity and tradition creates a beautiful effect. I think the play is a successful introduction of

the Greek classic to Chinese people,” Song Shikun commented on Damai, the Ticketmaster of China.

  Performances will be staged at the National Theater of China through March 2.

  ”Good girls” do what they’re told, are quiet, don’t argue or risk embarrassing their families. Reem and Rawan say they had turned being “good girls” into a fine art.

  ”In our house, we (were) always the good girls they wanted us to be. So, if they want us to

clean, we will clean. If they want us to cook, then we will cook,” 18-year-old Rawan says.

  ”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.

The problem is, that new divide doesn’t fall down tradition

party lines — hence the defections from both of the UK’s main parties. And if how you voted on Brexit ultimately dictates how you vote, what do

es that mean in the context of the rest of a political platform?
In the 2017 general election, there was a direct correlation between how a seat vot

ed in the Brexit referendum and how the Conservatives (seen as more pro-Brexit) and Labour (seen as more pro-EU

) performed respectively.
Rob Ford, Professor of Political Science at the University of Manchester and au

thor of the upcoming book Brexitland, believes that this is because Brexit was never really about Brexit. “It’s what we aca

demics call the second ideological dimension. Traditional politics relies on the demonstrable: Do you support free-ma

rket economics or regulation? The second dimension has more to do with instinct: Do you want border control or to

welcome refugees? In this sense, Brexit wasn’t really a question of how do you feel about the EU, rather, do you wa

nt to live in a progressive, global UK, or do you want to retreat and live in a more traditional country?”

Consumers are more willing to spend money this year

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

me has been increasing fast and deeper pockets facilitate more spending. The second China Int

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

Wang Jun, a researcher at the China Center for International Economic Exchanges, exp

ects more favorable policies to further boost domestic shopping this year as nationwide tax cuts continue.
