In an international conference on religious freedom he hosted in Washington

上海千花坊女神会所from Tuesday to Thursday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo again showed how freely his tongue can wag in an ef

fort to portray the United States as a beacon of freedom in a world that he painted as pitch-black.

Alleging that “83 percent of the world’s population live in countries where religious freedom is either threatened or deni上海千花坊

ed entirely”, the evangelical Christian even helpfully proffered a list of those countries he considers culpable.

上海千花坊女神会所Not surprisingly, given his past lambastings of it, China came in for a tongue-lash

ing with Pompeo asserting it is “home to one of the worst human rights crises of our time”.

This is not the first time he has pointed an accusing finger at China’s policies in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. Bu上海千花坊

t this time he took his rhetoric up a notch describing it as “the stain of the century”.

上海千花坊女神会所He might want to look closer to home for that, as the detention centers on the US southe

rn border are more fitting of that description, having been described by some as “concentration camps”.

Even the US president has admitted, “they’re very crowded, in many cases”. 上海千花坊

But Pompeo carefully avoided overstretching his tongue when presenting h

is examples of China’s human rights abuses. He failed to mention that the many illegal religions and s上海千花坊女神会所

ocial organizations in China and elsewhere in the world are funded by his government for its own political purpos

上海千花坊女神会所es; and that many separatist organizations are on the payroll of Washington under the name of freedom fighters.

Nobel laureate Mo Yan and a dozen winners of the presti

gious Luxun and Maodun literature prizes, including Ge Fei, A Lai and Su Tong, together

with a group of renowned Shanxi writers and poets gathered that week to discuss literary depictions of the countryside.

The village has a literary tradition which dates back to the mid-20th century, when a new Chin

ese modern literary genre shanyaodan, a nickname for a potato that’s popular in North China, emerged.

Authors who follow the shanyaodan school of writing such as Zhao Shuli, Ma Feng and Xi

Rong were all living in the Shanxi countryside, where their work centered around rural life there.

Many of Ma’s works in particular were written in Jiajiazhuang, where he witnessed the changes to the village broug

ht about by the agricultural cooperatives during the 1950s after moving to work in Fenyang.

hina turns the lights off for Earth Hourows the Olymp

Landmarks in China turned off their lights for an hour on Saturday as part of a global effort to raise awareness of threats facing planet Earth.

Five cities – Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen in Guangdong province, Wuhan in Hubei province and Chengdu in Sichuan pro

vince – took part in the Earth Hour campaign and held supporting events, including photo exhibitions and eco-fairs.

The theme of this year’s campaign, run by the World Wildlife Fund, w

as “connect to earth”, in order to bring attention to protecting global biodiversity.

The Olympic Tower in Beijing switched off its lights, as did the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai, along with other 20 buildings in the Bund.

The Yellow Crane Tower in Wuhan also went dark, as

local environmental groups and college students joined the annual bid to highlight conservation.

At the Strawberry Music Festival in Wuhan, a lead singer of a rock band unplugged his electric

instrument and performed the traditional Chinese musical instrument guzheng, or Chinese zither, to recognize the campaign.

SpaceX Crew Dragon docks with the space station in demo flight

  SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule, its first spacecraft designed to carry humans, took flight for the first time Saturday.

  An uncrewed demonstration mission took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida early Saturd

ay for the International Space Station. NASA tweet

ed early Sunday that it had attached to the International Space Station.

  ”Capture confirmed!” it said.

  The successful launch without people puts SpaceX one step closer to

an historic landmark: Crew Dragon could be the first commercially built sp

acecraft to carry NASA astronauts to orbit. And Crew Dragon — along with a capsule called Sta

rliner built by Boeing — could end the United States’ decade-long reliance on Russia for human spaceflight.

  Elon Musk, SpaceX’s chief executive and lead designer, told a cro

wd of reporters that he was “emotionally exhausted” after launch. His rocket com

pany’s main goal since it was founded in 2002 was to someday send humans to space.

  ”It’s been 17 years to get to this point,” he said. It took “an in

credible amount of hard work and sacrifice from a lot of people to get to this point.”

Based on what we know about the North Koreans and

  their negotiating style, they always come to the table well-prepared and they always follow protocol. Above all else, they value the dignity of their Supreme Lea

der. Kim’s delegation must have been mortified by what could be perceived as a humiliating loss of face,” he added.

  ”Not only did the US President walk out of the talks, he also snubbe

d the final meal they were supposed to share together. The table was set and menu pr

epared for what should’ve been a friendly working lunch ahead of the scheduled joint signing ceremony. In

stead the snow fish and banoffee pie turned cold and the table sat empty — a symbol of the wasted opportunity in Hanoi.”

  Another get together ‘before too long’

  Pompeo said that he believes working level negotiators will get together “before too long,” b

ut added that both sides need to regroup and that there would need to be a reason to meet.

  ”Look, there has to be a reason for the conversations. There has to be a theory of th

e case about how to move forward. I’m confident that there is one,” Pompeo said.

  Joel Witt, director of the Stimson Center website 38 North, which monitors North Korea, said “I’m not sure where it goes from here.”
