Yancheng, which is further north of the Yangtze, turned

d to the river for water in late June after experiencing at least four drinking water contamination incidents.

“As many areas abandon local sources and turn to the Yangtze, some sections of the river have become overcrowded” with diversion facilities, the report said.

Even the Yangtze is not a perfectly safe supply. In April 2014, for example, drinking wa

ter in Taizhou was interrupted because of pollutants discharged from local chemical plants.

In 2016, inspectors from the central government visited 12 of the 30 sites for collecting drink

ing water along the Yangtze in Jiangsu province and found eight with environmental violations, includin

g the existence of ports for the transportation of chemicals and fish farms in protected areas.

In March 2018, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment and the Min

The national landmark has received thousands of visitors

from China and overseas since it opened in 1968. Leaders from more than 70 countries and over 600 delegations from 150 nations have visited it.

During the three days it reopened to the public before taking road traffic in December, the bridge had more than 200,000 visitors.

The 4,589-meter-long structure reopened after 27 months of repairs. As China’s first home-designed road and rail truss bridge, it has been p

raised and loved by many. A truss bridge is one whose load-bearing superstructure is composed of connected elements forming triangular units.

Liu Yong, 63, a retired teacher from Nanjing, said he was in elementary school when the bridge first op

ened. Without telling his parents and teachers, he and his classmates walked more than 10 kilometers to see it.

“It was the most magnificent structure I had ever seen. When our relatives visited Nanjing, we

took them to see the bridge instead of visiting other well-known places of interest,” Liu said.

Zhou Lei, who lives in a residential community near the bridge, said that when he was an elementary school student in Ya

ncheng, Jiangsu, his father promised him that he would take him to see the bridge if he had high scores in his final exam.

Poverty alleviation high on agenda during president’s

President Xi Jinping is paying great attention to poverty reductio

n work during his inspection tour of the mountainous Chongqing municipality.

Immediately after Xi got off his plane on Monday he boarded a train and then traveled by road,

heading to a primary school and a village in the Shizhu Tujia autonomous county, in a remote part of Southwest China.

To build a moderately prosperous society, it is crucial to raise rur

al living standards, Xi said while visiting the home of Ma Pei­qing, an 85-year-old farmer

in the village of Huaxi, Zhongyi township, who joined the Communist Party of China 45 years ago.

“Seeing that the people are guaranteed the basic necessities of food and clothing, as well as bet

ter and better access to education, medical care and safe housing, I feel relieved,” Xi told the villagers.

The turtles’ circadian rhythm is slower than a mamm

mal’s, which means that the signs of trouble during the procedure will not be as obvious as

with mammals. It is easier to cause irreversible damage if an unexpected situation is encountered.”

“It’s obvious that their near-extinction was caused by huma

ns,” he said. “We haven’t done the basic work of researching the turtles’ biological inf

ormation, behaviors and genetics. The knowledge we have is too limited to save the species.”

Save your look of judgment for anyone blocking your path as you try to walk past them on an

escalator in Shanghai. The new safety notices posted in every metro station in the city tell you to stand still.

The notice also warns people against playing, leaning and faci

ng the wrong way, as well as carrying heavy goods or trolleys on escalators.

While standing on the right and walking on the left has been the norm, the city has changed t

his etiquette to “no walking” for the safety of commuters and the proper functioning of escalators.
