In October, another Boeing 737-8 MAX plunged into the Jav

Sea just minutes after taking off from Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital, killing all 189 people on

board the Lion Air flight. The cockpit data recorder showed that the jet’s airspeed indicator had mal

functioned on its last four flights, though Lion Air initially claimed that problems with the aircraft had been fixed.

China’s civil aviation authority asked domestic airlines to temporarily suspend operatio

n of Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft after a model operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed on Sunday.

All 157 people on board the aircraft from Addis Ababa to Nairobi died in the accident, according to Ethiopian Airlines. It i

s the second time in less than five months that Boeing 737 MAX 8 was involved in such a deadly crash.

The authority said since both aircraft went down in min

utes just after taking off, it will ground the Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets till 6 pm on Monday out of safety concerns.

When asked whether he was ready to give up nuclear wea

pons, Kim said: “If I wasn’t ready for such a thing, I wouldn’t be here.” However, he wants the sanctions to be lifted in one fell swoop.

Given that Trump did not close the door on a deal in the future, and said that he would meet with Kim ag

ain sooner or later, it may be that he simply ran out of time to talk because he had to turn his attention elsewhere.

Certainly, from the Singapore summit in June to this week’s Hanoi meeting, the dramatic rapprochem

ent between the US and the DPRK — seemingly immutable adversaries — would not have been po

ssible without the strong political will for engagement demonstrated by both sides over the past year.

Each time this has appeared at risk of being lost, other important players involved in the d

enuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, in particular the Republic of Korea and China, have prov

ided the necessary will and support to keep the engagement alive, and set the stage for Washington and Pyongyang to add

ress core issues leading up to denuclearization. They will no doubt be offering their support this time, too.

Although the high hopes for the meeting have not been met

and there is a sense of disappointment, the high-level contacts between the two sides are likely to continue.

Wang Junsheng, an international relations expert with

the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, expressed his optimism about the second summit and said that given the DPRK’s announcement that it would shift its strate

gic focus to economic development, the country will likely make concessions on giving up its nuclear weapons during th

is summit in exchange for the lifting of sanctions and the declaration of the end of the war.

Wang said denuclearization is an irreversible trend.

But Jenny Town, a research analyst at the Stimson Center in Washington, worried that it will be difficul

t for the two leaders to generate a specific road map and schedule for denuclearization at a single summit.

Also on Wednesday, the Republic of Korea’s presidential Blue House spokesman sa

id, “Whatever concessions Trump and Kim may make at their upcoming summit will be significant as th

ey will mean further progress toward the complete denuclearization of Pyongyang.”

Trump met separately with Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Tro

ng and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc earlier on We

dnesday. Kim is likely to meet the Vietnamese leaders during his two-day “official goodwill” visit after the summit w

ith Trump, given the local media reports saying Kim would leave the country on Saturday.

New York Oil Price 30 Rising Watch out for a Strong Ad

WTI crude oil prices rose for the third consecutive day on Thursday (January 31). As Opec

tightened its markets, declining U.S. oil imports and sanctions imposed by the United States on Ve

nezuela made it difficult for Venezuela to maintain its crude oil exports, driving up oil prices. According to Xinhua News Agency, oil prices in New York rose on th

e 30th and light crude oil futures for delivery in March rose by $0.92 to close at $54.23 a barrel.

Crude oil prices have strengthened after signs that OPEC’s output cuts have affected trade. EIA’s weekly report shows th

at U.S. imports from Saudi Arabia fell by more than half from the previous week to 442,000 barrels a day. This is the se

cond lowest level in weekly data since 2010; US commercial crude oil inventories increased by 919,000 barrels to

445,494 million barrels in the week ending January 25. Inventories increased by 6.6% over the same period last year.

Saudi Arabia is actually the leader of OPEC. Together with a number of non-O

PEC oil producers, including Russia, the organization announced production cu

ts at the end of 2018 aimed at tightening markets and boosting oil prices.

According to the Tianfu Morning Post, Zhou Dongping, a lawyer of

According to the Tianfu Morning Post, Zhou Dongping, a lawyer of Chengdu Taihe Tai Law Firm, said:

“According to the relevant provisions, the number of days of annual leave that

should not be taken can be compensated by three times the daily wage.”

About half of workers enjoy paid annual leave

As for holidays, there is a widely circulated saying: “Europeans work for better holidays, while Chinese people

spend their holidays for better work.”

As early as 1936, France established relevant laws and became the first

country in the world to establish a paid annual leave system.

Until 1995, the Chinese also had the same rights. The Labor Law, which was

formally implemented that year, stipulated that workers who worked

continuously for more than one year were entitled to paid annual leave.

By 2008, the Regulations on Annual Vacation with Pay for Employees were promulgated and implemented, which

stipulated the specific number of vacation days: if the cumulative work of employees has been completed for less than one year and less than 10 years, the

annual vacation time will be 5 days; if the work has been completed for less than 10

years and 20 years, the annual vacation

time will be 10 days; if the work has been completed for 20 years, the annual vacation time will be 15 days

Up to now, it has been more than ten years since the promulgation of the

Regulations on Annual Leave with Pay for Employees, but the implementation is not satisfactory. According to Nanfang.com:

Since 2012, Zhao Lihang has worked in a clothing factory in Baoding, Hebei

Province. During her six years of work, she has never heard of the term “paid annual vacation” or enjoyed this

treatment. “In our industry, overtime pay is enough. If there is no paid annual vacation, there will be no such thing.”

Xiao Huang, who works in Beijing Branch of a daily chemical company in Zhejiang Province, knows that the head

office stipulates paid annual leave, but the leave must be approved by the head of the branch company. The head of the

branch company usually does not approve the leave, so he has not asked for paid annual leave. According to his wife’s response: “The day after I gave birth, the

company urged him to go to work and asked for leave without approval, and then withheld 400 yuan.”

Survey data from several authoritative bodies confirm the above cases:

The annual survey conducted by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Affairs in 60 cities shows that more than

half of the employees enjoy paid annual leave, and the proportion of those who take leave increases year by year. But in general, the implementation of paid

annual leave system is not ideal, there are still a considerable number of enterprises have not implemented paid annual leave.

A survey of 2552 workers conducted by the Tourism Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences

showed that 40.1% of respondents said they did not have paid annual leave.

The Social Survey Center of China Youth Daily once conducted a social survey of

4,325 people. 50.4% of the respondents said that their units never took paid vacations.

The data also show that the implementation of paid annual leave is better mainly for Party and government

organs, institutions, large state-owned enterprises

and foreign-funded enterprises,

while private enterprises

and small and medium-sized

enterprises are relatively poor.

What are you thinking of, old friend? The wildgeese never answer me.

Du Fu
REMEMBERING MY BROTHERS ON A MOONLIGHT NIGHT
A wanderer hears drums portending battle.
By the first call of autumn from a wildgoose at the border,
He knows that the dews tonight will be frost.
…How much brighter the moonlight is at home!
O my brothers, lost and scattered,
What is life to me without you?
Yet if missives in time of peace go wrong —
What can I hope for during war?


Du Fu
TO LI BAI AT THE SKY SEND
A cold wind blows from the far sky….
What are you thinking of, old friend?
The wildgeese never answer me.
Rivers and lakes are flooded with rain.
…A poet should beware of prosperity,
Yet demons can haunt a wanderer.
Ask an unhappy ghost, throw poems to him
Where he drowned himself in the Milo River.


Du Fu
A FAREWELL AT FENGJI STATION TO GENERAL YAN
This is where your comrade must leave you,
Turning at the foot of these purple mountains….
When shall we lift our cups again, I wonder,
As we did last night and walk in the moon?
The region is murmuring farewell
To one who was honoured through three reigns;
And back I go now to my river-village,
Into the final solitude.


Du Fu
ON LEAVING THE TOMB OF PREMIER FANG
Having to travel back now from this far place,
I dismount beside your lonely tomb.
The ground where I stand is wet with my tears;
The sky is dark with broken clouds….
I who played chess with the great Premier
Am bringing to my lord the dagger he desired.
But I find only petals falling down,
I hear only linnets answering.


Du Fu
A NIGHT ABROAD
A light wind is rippling at the grassy shore….
Through the night, to my motionless tall mast,
The stars lean down from open space,
And the moon comes running up the river.
…If only my art might bring me fame
And free my sick old age from office! —
Flitting, flitting, what am I like
But a sand-snipe in the wide, wide world!


Du Fu
ON THE GATE-TOWER AT YOUZHOU
I had always heard of Lake Dongting —
And now at last I have climbed to this tower.
With Wu country to the east of me and Chu to the south,
I can see heaven and earth endlessly floating.
…But no word has reached me from kin or friends.
I am old and sick and alone with my boat.
North of this wall there are wars and mountains —
And here by the rail how can I help crying?
