It indicated that nearly 70 percent of tourists traveled over

d overseas to see wildlife at least twice a year. Asia, Africa and Europe are the top three destinations.

About 60 percent of interviewees said they would refuse to take part in tours that migh

t interrupt the normal life of animals in the wild or be harmful to them, even if such a tour might be exclusive.

More than 70 percent of tourists said they are glad to choose tours wit

h higher prices and which take more time in order to be more in touch with the wildlife.

“Wildlife watching has attracted millions of tourists annually and many travelers are driven by the affection of animals. Ho

wever, some activities on such tours have had an adverse impact on the wildlife,” Zhao said.

He said hundreds of thousands of wild animals across the world are taken away from natural habitats, forced into cap

tivity and subjected to abuse, both mentally and physically, in the name of entertainment and profit.

Foreign volunteers help out at Hangzhou scenic spot

More than 2.5 million tourists visited West Lake in Zhejiang province over the May Day holiday.

What caught the attention of many of them was the presence of a team of eight intern

ational students, all wearing yellow vests and Bluetooth headsets, and riding electric scooters.

The eight were studying in Hangzhou, Zhejiang’s provincial capital. They are the first internatio

nal volunteer team serving at the famous spot, which was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011.

The foreign volunteers are from India, Mongolia, Banglade

sh, Indonesia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Yemen.

“As Hangzhou is seeing an increasing number of individual travelers from abroad followin

g the 2016 G20 Summit … we have been considering how to diversify our volunteer forces during h

olidays and peak seasons for years,” said Liu Jian, director of the volunteer program.

ut a careful survey by James Laurenceson, of the Austr

alia-China Relations Institute at the University of Technology Sydney, of media stori

es on the subject showed that, with about 130,000 Chinese students in Australia, there were a mere four incid

ents. And in not a single case was freedom of expression compromised or classroom discussion stifled.

Anti-China media stories focus on large campaign donatio

ns to Australian political parties by Chinese businessman Huan

g Xiangmo. But of the 300 companies in the Australia-China Chamber of Commerce, none donates to po

litical parties, and this includes investors in mining, banking, food and aviation ind

ustries. In fact, there is no pattern of donations from China swamping political parties.

It is reported that the IS terrorist organization has clai

med it was behind the horrific attacks. Yet whoever the perpetrators, the attacks on innoc

ent people should be condemned in the strongest terms, and those responsible arrested and punished.

Since Sri Lanka has been facing some political and e

conomic problems, and increasingly acute social conf

licts for the past few years, the attacks seem to reveal not just sectarian disputes but also cer

tain people’s dissatisfaction with the situation in the island nation, and the rest of South Asia.

The motive behind the attacks could be helplessness and desperation of certain sections of Muslims in South Asia.

The rise of Islamic extremism has to some extent fueled the rise of white supremac

ist groups in the United States and some European countries. Perhaps the conflict between Islamic extremism and

the anti-Muslim forces today is greater than that immediately after the Sept 11, 2001, attacks in the US.

And the rising tensions in South Asia and other regions should prompt govern

ments to take sound measures to prevent the spread of extremism inside their borders.、

An experiment conducted by Chinese and US scientists on improving monkeys’ cognitive function has been

found to follow international animal rights standards, according to the Chinese research institute.

The study implanted 11 rhesus macaque monkeys with copies of the human MCP

H1 gene, which scientists believe is crucial for humans’ brain development and evolution.

The project is led by researchers from the Kunming Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Acade

Sun Jing, a 26-year-old woman from Shanghai, visited

 Xi’an, the capital of Shaanxi province, during the break.

“The city is charming, with its long history and modern urban life, as well as its

diversified snacks and world-famous Terracotta Warriors,” she said on Sunday.

“The only annoyance was that there were too many people crowding every attraction, but it’s the holiday.”

Some travelers opted to go overseas, and many of them stretched the holiday into a six-day vacation.

The Lvmama report said that Thailand and Japan remained the tw

o top choices for Chinese mainland travelers during the Tomb Sweeping holiday, followed by Indones

The author of Singled Out: How Singles Are Stereot

yped, Stigmatized, and Ignored said at the same time, people start to see the positive aspe

cts of living single, such as being free to pursue their passions, enjoying solitude an

d putting the people they care most about at the center of their lives, instead of a romantic partner.

Other factors contributing to the rise of one-person househol

ds include high levels of divorce, increased education that leads to more employment and be

tter-paying career opportunities, and increased longevity and improved health at older ages.

As of 2017, the average age of a first marriage for women was about 27.5, while it was

29.5 for men. Demographers estimate that about 80 percent of Americans will marry at some point in their lives.

That’s a lot lower than the 95 percent who married in the 1950s and 1960s, and it may drop somewhat more, according to Steph

anie Coontz, a marriage historian and author of Marriage, a History: How Love Conquered Marriage.
