Ardern was elected Prime Minister in October 2017, at the hea

  d of a coalition between her left-wing Labour Party and the populist, anti-immigrantion NZ First.

  She had only taken over as Labour leader three months earlier, at which point it was trailing so far in the polls that i

t looked doubtful it could cobble together a coalition government, let alone score anything close to a majority.

  In a poll before Ardern took over from then Labour leader Andrew Little, the party’s suppo

rt had plunged to less than 25%, a 20-year low. Months later, as “Jacindamania” gripped the nation, it surged to over 40%.

  While she would eventually have to rely on NZ First and the Gr

eens for support, Ardern succeeded in boosting Labour enough to make her the world’s yo

ungest serving female leader, and end a decade of control by the conservative-leaning National Party.

  Since then she has occupied a role unfamiliar to most New Zealand leaders: Global celebrity.

movable. However, internet blurs the boundary and allows people to access high-quality resources without leaving their home.

According to the action plan, China will promote Internet Plus in several sectors such as healthcare, elderly care, education and culture, to boost new con

sumption based on internet platforms, and develop online and offline coordinated consumption.

According to a report from the China E-commerce Research Ce

E-commerce poverty alleviation

In the wake of information consumption’s development in China, e-commerce brings about a new idea for poverty alleviation in rural areas.

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.

The places that Chinese consumers can purchase milk

have expanded. Now, bakeries, cinemas, convenience stores, gyms are all channels that dairy makers are try

ing to access,” said Yu Xubo, chairman of the board of directors of Mengniu, and president of COFCO Group, China’s largest food trader.

“We have also found that the purchase of fresh dairy products is increasing in major

cities among middle to higher-income earners,” said Yu, who is also a deputy to the 13th National People’s Congress.

This year, Mengniu said it plans to establish specific cold chain logistics cha

nnels and strengthen its ability to produce and transfer fresh dairy products.

Meanwhile, the dairy maker has developed some niche products. It has introduced sports milk with a high protein

content tailored to those who work out often, and milk that acts as a meal substitute, both of which have seen high

er-than-expected sales, driven by new and more diversified demand from consumers, the company said.

Trump issues first veto of his presidency, says resolution ‘pu

  Deeming congressional rejection of his border national emerg

ency “reckless” and “dangerous”, President Donald Trump issued the first veto of his presi

dency Friday, insisting the situation on the southern frontier amounted to a threat to Americans’ safety.

  ”Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it,” Trump said fr

om the Oval Office before officially sending the measure back to Congress without his approval.

  It is the first time in his two years in office that Trump has used his presidential v

eto power to block legislation and comes after a dozen Senate Republicans joined Democrats to rebu

ke Trump’s use of his national emergency power to bypass Congress and fund construction of a border wall.

  Trump said the resolution, which would have reversed the national emergency, “put countless Americans in danger.”

The President’s emergency Proclamation reasonably descr

  ribed the current situation as an ongoing ‘border security and humanitarian crisis,'” Boyd adds. “The cris

is at the border … may qualify as an emergency even though it, too, is not entirely new.”

  Twelve Republican senators banded together Thursday to deliver the f

orceful rebuke after expressing concerns that Trump’s use of the national emergency decla

ration as an end-run around Congress violates the separation of powers and sets a bad precedent that a woul

d-be future Democratic president could follow to unilaterally drive their agenda.

  The White House sought to pare back Republican defections leading up to the vote, with the President and White House aides

making clear to Republican senators that a vote against Trump on this issue would have ramifications come re-election time.

  Trump rejected entreaties from several Senate Republicans t

o agree to a compromise that would curtail his national emergency powers and instead fra

med the vote not as a matter of constitutional concerns, but rather as a litmus test on border security.

However, in a social media post just before the attack, an acco

  unt that is believed to belong to one of the attackers posted a link to an 87-page manifesto that

was filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas and explanations for an attack. The manifesto was not signed.

  In addition, police are aware of a video shared online and broadcast live during the at

tack, which purports to show a gunman walking into an unnamed mosque and opening fire.

  ”We would strongly urge that the (video) link not be shared. We are working to have any footage removed,” the New Zealand police said.

  In a statement, a spokesperson for Facebook New Zealand, Mia Garlick, said videos that appeared to show the Christchurch shootings were quickly taken down.

  ”New Zealand Police alerted us to a video on Facebook shortly after the livestream co

Yao’s effort found favor with the 21-member sports

panel of the CPPCC, where retired champions, sports officials, scholars and entreprene

urs agreed to make a joint proposal this year to call for greater investment and policy support from the edu

cation, finance and rural-urban development authorities to raise the level of student participation in sports.

In response, the Ministry of Education has pledged to enhance the

role of physical education on campus by making school PE classes more fun, providing be

tter training of PE teachers and investing more in facility upgrades as a primary task in 2019.

“We’ve taken serious measures to address the decline in student fitn

ess levels, and we have already seen results, but it seems the effort is still not eno

ugh,” Zhong Denghua, a vice-minister of education, said during a group discussion with the sports panel on Monday.
