May has come under intense pressure to quit the prime minis

 minister’s post as the price of winning support for the deal.

At a meeting Sunday at the prime minister’s country retreat, Chequers,

prominent Brexiteers told May they might back the deal — if she agreed to step d

own so a new leader could take charge of the next phase of negotiations, which will

settle Britain’s future relations with the EU.

Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who attended the meeting and is likely to be a conten

der in any future Conservative leadership race, accused the government

of lacking “gumption” and chickening out on delivering Brexit.

Britaina’s best-selling newspaper, The Sun, put a call on its front page for the

prime minister to resign under the headline “Time’s up, Theresa.”

May is hanging on, hoping she can persuade Brexit-backing lawmakers that

rejecting her deal means Britain may never leave the EU.

She told lawmakers that Britain would not leave the EU without a deal unless

Parliament — which has already rejected the idea — voted for it.

Patients and their families are doubly affected by plum

  meting purchasing power across the country. It’s a situation, Emami says, that has made a lot of treatable cases lethal.

  ”I have a patient upstairs … I diagnosed him with brain cancer. The cost of biopsy, the chemotherapy and medication is

very high. So, the family asked me if I could leave him be,” says Emami. “Every day, we see this story here.”

  Even when families can afford medical equipment they often join long waiting lists. Cardia

c pacemakers are in short supply in the country, and patients must abandon their regular lifestyles, an

d become admitted to hospitals where they are hooked up to a cardiac machine.

  Emami tells CNN that some families are opting out of paying for feed

ing tubes for relatives with advanced Alzheimer’s disease. Without the feeding tubes, the pat

ients spend the rest of their days wired to machines in hospitals, instead of receiving home care.

The negotiations are being led by Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and US Treasury Secr

200 billion worth of imports from China are set to rise to 25 percent from 10 percent.

But there are still obstacles to be overcome, and no one should underestimate how daunting a task the two s

When the dough has formed, dust your working surface with

h flour and dust your hands again. Transfer the mixture over and continue to knead it until its surface becomes smo

oth, this should take about 10 minutes. Let it rest. After about 4-5 hours, kneed it again. You’re ready to go!

How to roll the perfect dumpling wrapper?

Take the dough and roll it out into a long sausage shape. Using a knife, cut it into simi

lar sized pieces, roughly about 2 inches in length. Press each one into a rough circle.

The trick is never to let go of the wrapper while your rolling. It feels counter-int

uitive, but hold onto the top of the wrapper, use the rolling pin in an upward mot

ion towards the center. Move the dough around and keep rolling until you have a thin, circular wrapper.

Alternatively, you can pick pre-rolled wrappers from your local shop or Chinese supermarket.

Bosses of 11 takeaway companies demanded cancel

Knowing that he is the supervisor of 11 companies in Wuhan, Du Jun, 29, is confused. After months of struggling about it, he found that it was still a fog and did not know what to do.

Country mothers were paralyzed in bed, so the minimum living allowance was abolished. A family of five, he works alone

, he works two jobs a day, life is still not guaranteed. It never occurred to him that his identity information had been stolen for no reason, causing so much trouble.

Du Jun felt he had a big black pot on his back.

A company with paralyzed mothers under the son’s name was abolished.

Du Jun is a native of Jingshan Village, Mulan Township, Huangpi District. The 53-year-old mother suffered three str

okes and was paralyzed in bed for the third time for two years. She was unable to take care of herself.

Father can do nothing in the countryside to take care of his mother. The wife will tak

e her 3-year-old daughter, and the family of five depend solely on Du Jun to su

pport her. He now works two jobs. He works in Huazhong Community canteen of Shuita Street in Hankou in the m

orning and delivers takeout in the afternoon. After a month’s hard work, he can earn about 5000 yuan.

Mothers need to soften blood vessels. They need to be hospitalized three times a y

ear and spend 120,000 yuan. In the past, mothers had a minimum living allowance of more than 300 yuan per m

onth, and medical expenses could be reimbursed by 80%. This reduced Du Jun’s pressure.
