According to Li, the project drew to a close recently as

sponsorship from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation ended as scheduled. “However, more gre

en super rice species are expected to be rolled out, thanks to funds from the bilateral collaborations und

er the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative and South-South Cooperation.”

Gary Atlin, a senior program officer for the Gates Foundation, said the p

roject demonstrates a new collaboration model in which rice scientists from different cou

ntries can work together to understand local needs and develop solutions on a global basis.

“Expertise of Chinese scientists in rice breeding and cultivation is a tremendous resou

rce for the developing world,” he said. “I believe it will continue to have an impact for years to come.”

Pan prepared each lesson very carefully. When I made teach

ng slides, I didn’t allow enough time for the transition between them, so Pan gently pointed

out how I should express myself when I changed slides so the students would understand more nat

urally. I was very impressed,” said Namgal, who like many Tibetans only uses one name.

Zhang Dazhong, her second mentor, taught her how to get the best results from th

e papers she assigned her students. Now, the average score for her class has jumped to second place in the grade.

“The Jiangsu teachers are all very nice and willing to tutor me. They all

have their own teaching techniques and tips that I always want to learn,” Namgal said.

In addition to providing teaching guidance, the Jiangsu teache

rs introduced a prestudy system. At the beginning of every semester, teachers of the

same subject sit together to analyze the textbooks and compile a document that outlines the key points of each lesson.

When the students read the document, they know what they should focus on and the problems they will be expected to solve in class.

The Chinese government has never imposed any policy

 to force foreign companies to transfer their technology,” Gao added, sayi

ng that the country’s Foreign Investment Law bars forced technology transfers.

The newly passed law, approved this month and set to take effect in January, stipulates that China will treat foreign and Chi

nese enterprises equally and protect their intellectual property rights. Under the law, foreign enterprises will recei

ve pre-establishment national treatment, in addition to a negative list system for market access.

A negative list shows areas where investment i

s limited or prohibited for foreign investors, with all other areas presumed to be open.

Gao said the ministry is working with relevant de

partments to conduct research on shortening the negative list for market access.

Mocking O’Rourke’s gestures might seem a frivolous at a time

  of national political angst and with a heavy duty policy debate already under way. But Trump is an expert at trivializing and belittling opponents, to de

tract from the gravity of their arguments and to feed the conservative media machine.

  His diagnosis of Jeb Bush’s “low energy” four years ago established a narrative about the former Florida gove

rnor’s campaign that hinted at a grain of truth. The one-time GOP front-runner could never recover.

  Trump vs. Brexit — and Obama

  At one point in the meeting Tump, said he wasn’t going to “comment on Bre

xit,” but characteristically unable to constrain himself, could barely leave the topic alone.

  At the start of his meeting, Trump welcomed Varadkar, and poin

ting out that his visitor was in a difficult position over Britain’s tortured attempts to comp

lete its withdrawal from the European Union, which could harm Ireland’s peace and prosperity.
