While China is already the world’s biggest gas importer, with

billion cu m of gas shipment last year, a

year-on-year increase of 31.7 percent, it has only 26 gas stora

ge sites with just 8 billion cu m in storage as of 2018, contributing 3 percent of the country’s total gas consumption.

Analysts believe insufficient infrastructure, including underground gas storage an

d natural gas pipelines, is standing in the way of a more open and liberalized domestic gas sector in the country.

Li Li, research director at energy consulting company ICIS China, also suggested that the government should encourage the construction of gas storage ta

nks to prevent future gas shortages during cold snaps, considering the country’s high dependence on oil and gas imports.

To ensure sufficient gas supply, the country’s national oil majors are also ramping up loc

al oil and gas output, adding thousands of wells at oil basins, shale rocks and deepwater fields nationwide.

Utsav Vasudeva, a 22-year-old law student in the souther

  city of Bengaluru, says the BJP “has done a lot of good work” but he is uneasy about its religious underpinnings.

  ”Any time that (situation) happens it is chaotic for the system, and I feel one thing Congress stands for is secularism, which the BJP does not,” he said.

  Modi’s rise has left many Indian liberals worried about an increase in religious intolerance at the expense of Muslim

s and other minorities. In contrast to the Congress Party’s secular stance, the BJP is strongly aligned with conse

rvative Hindu nationalists — the more extreme of whom want India governed in accordance with strict Hindu beliefs.

  ”In a country that has different religions and cultures, Modi as a leader, his party bein

g in power, means that a huge population is ignored and sidelined,” Kutty told CNN.

Of the other three people apprehended, two were arrested in

  possession of firearms and police are still trying to understand their involvement, said New Zealand Police Com

missioner Mike Bush. On Friday night local time police tweeted that the pair remain in custody.

  Police said a fourth person was arrested Friday but “that was not related to these events.”

  Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that at least one of those arreste

d is Australian. He said the shooting was the work of an “extremist right-wing, violent terrorist.”

  Police said they do not believe there are any other suspects but added that it was still an open investigation.

  None of the four people arrested had been on any security watch lists prior to the attack.

  Attack apparently broadcast live on social media

  Authorities said they “will not be discussing the offenders’ possible motivations or the causes of this incident” at this stage.

According to the latest national students’ fitness surve

urvey, released in 2017, 75 percent of primary and secondary schools had built c

ampus sports venues that met national standards, up from 62.4 percent in 2012. The

survey was conducted by the ministry and the General Administration of Sport of China.

In 2015, the same survey showed that the overall fitness level of prima

ry and secondary students-including stamina, str

ength and aerobic capacity-had begun to improve following a perennial decline.

“Our measures have worked but it doesn’t mean we can stop pushing. The fact that three-quarters of schools have ade

quate sports fields and facilities shows that we still have room to improve,” Zhong said.

e said that to achieve the 2020 goals, the military must stren

engthen planning and coordination, concentrate resources on its priorities and enhance its accountability system.

More attention should be given to projects that concern the military’s combat readine

ss efforts, and those key to boosting the armed forces’ operational capability or to facilitating reforms in na

tional defense. The military should gear up such projects and make sure they are of high quality, according to Xi.

Policies pertaining to military buildup and troop management should be refined to lay a solid foundation for the realization of the goals.

Xi ordered the military to intensify its internal supervision and inspection to prevent and u

proot the practice of formalities for formalities’ sake and bureaucratism. Funds should be used whe

re they are truly needed, and the virtues of hard work and thrift should be promoted. Management and scrutiny o

ver the use of funds should be strengthened to eliminate misconduct and corruption, he said.

et “until FAA-identified fixes to the plane can be installed, communicated, and confirmed.”

We don’t know if there’s a link to the Lion Air crash

  Until flight data recorder data is analyzed, it’s impossible to say whether the two disasters are linked.

  There are a number of apparent similarities between the two flig

hts, aside from the obvious fact that both flew on new MAX 8 jets. Each flight crashed mi

nutes into its journey, during a phase of flight where fatal accidents are not at their most common.

  The Lion Air flight flew for 13 minutes before crashing, while the Ethiopian

Airlines jet crashed at six minutes into the journey. Both flights also dipped and then regained altitude, acc

ording to flight data, though the erratic movements on the Lion Air plane were more extreme.

  ”The similarities with Lion Air are too great not to be concer

ned,” CNN aviation expert Mary Schiavo said after the se

cond disaster — and that concern has prompted numerous countries to ground Boeing MAX jets out of caution.
