being of the public, improve governance at the prim

 level and provide basic social services.Premier Li Keqiang met with the participants of the national conference on Tuesday.

He appealed to the civil affairs authorities to prioritize efforts to meet the basic needs of the people, extend assist

ance to those most in need and build an even more tightly woven safety net for the public’s livelihood.

It is also important for them to better meet the needs of the elderly, those with disabilities, the sick, and children living in difficult circ

umstances, he said, adding that basic social services should be better developed to help the public better address their problems.

The reform to streamline administration, enhance compliance oversight and improve governmen

t services should be deepened so that the public can more easily access administrative services, the premier said.

He also highlighted the importance of giving more play to the role of the private sector

so that services such as eldercare and nurseries can blossom to enrich the supply of social services and create more jobs.

According to the Ministry of Finance, local government

nts in Sichuan, Shaanxi and Shandong provinces as well as Beijing will eventually be able to sell bonds at count

ers in commercial banks directly to retail investors, and the practice will be expanded nationwide after an additional period of time.

The ministry said individuals do not need to pay taxes on the bonds’ interest income, and this policy is likely to attract more investors.

Selling local government bonds to retail investors should facilitate liquidity

in the secondary market, improve the market-oriented bond pricing mechanism and pu

sh issuers to enhance the quality of information disclosure, said Amanda Du, a Moody’s vice-president and senior analyst.

“Higher coupon rates compared with treasury bonds, and the tax exemption on the interest income, make

local government bonds more attractive for retail investors,” she said. “The fast takeup by retail investors also indicates that the

bonds have won high recognition among individual buyers, supported by the local governments’ high credit ratings.”

If Nyusi’s estimated death toll is confirmed, Tropical Cyclon

  clone Idai would be the deadliest tropical cyclone on record to have hit southern Africa.

  Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said there was no power in Beira and surr

ounding areas, and nearly all communication lines had been destroyed.

  ”Main roads leading into Beira have been cut off, buildings have been submerged and se

verely damaged, and all business has been shut down,” said the aid agency, adding that “medical acti

vities in Beira hospital, in local health centers, and throughout the community have ceased completely.”

  Though the cyclone hit Mozambique on Thursday, the extent of

the damage has taken days to come into focus due in part to the country’s poor infrastructure.

  The scale of #CycloneIdai in Beira, Mozambique, is truly heartbreaking. Initial assessments from @ifrc estimate at le

ast 90% of the area is completely destroyed. Read what IFRC aid workers are witnessing in the ar

The suspect fired his gun and struck one of the officers

  in the vest. A second officer fired back and hit the suspect, Splinter said.

  Both the officer and the suspect were transported to a local hospital, and the officer was treated and released. The suspect is listed in critical condition.

  Police said that per their policy, the identities of the officers involved will be released after 48 hours.

  The incident brings to mind the movie “Ocean’s Eleven.” In the film, Danny Ocea

n (Clooney), Pitt and other accomplices plan a heist on several casinos, including the Bellagio.

  Parts of Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska are grappling with the aftermath of a powerful “bomb

cyclone” that turned some areas into swamps as rivers spilled over highways and residential areas.

  The “bomb cyclone” slammed the central US with hurricane-like w

inds and blizzard conditions this week, leaving in its tracks heavy rains and flooding.

  In a news conference Friday, Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts said the state has experienced historic flooding in nearly every region.

GebreMariam also confirmed the company owns 6 other 737 Max 8 aircraft which are in service. Asked about whether

the company would be grounding them he explained they wouldn’t as “we don’t know the cause of the accident.”

The Boeing 737 Max 8 airplane had flown into Addis Ababa Sunday morning from Johannesburg on Flight ET858.

The CEO has visited the crash site today. He said the plane “is now right inside the ground” and it was not possible to identify w

hether it was an emergency landing or a crash. He said there was still smoke at the site when he visited.For the seco

nd time in less than six months, a brand-new Boeing aircraft crashed minutes into a flight.

The Ethiopian Airlines tragedy on Sunday comes months after a Lion Air flight went down over the Java Sea in late October, killing all 189 people on board.

There is no suggestion yet as to what caused the latest disaster, and no evidence that th

e two incidents are linked. All that is known, however, is that both flights took place on the Boeing 737 MA

X 8 — a new model recently unveiled to great fanfare by the US aviation giant, that saw its first flight less than two years ag

o.The plane that crashed on Sunday morning was delivered to Ethiopian Airlines in November.

Trump responded on Tuesday according to his creed, with a

  promise of all-out confrontation and a searing blast at his enemies.

  ”It’s a disgrace. It’s a disgrace to our country,” he said, accusing Democrats of being consu

med by anger at their loss in 2016, and framing the coming fight as an extension of his 2020 re-election campaign.

  Trump’s press secretary, Sarah Sanders, set the vituperative tone of a fight ag

ainst a Democratic majority seeking to expose the President as historically corrupt.

  ”Democrats have embarked on a fishing expedition because they are terrified that thei

r two year false narrative of ‘Russia collusion’ is crumbling,” Sanders said in a statement on Monday night. “The D

emocrats are not after the truth, they are after the President.”Sanders and everyone else inside the White House are about to end

ure the bitter, full-on misery of a multi-front oversight campaign. That means a blizzard of subpoenas, officials be

ing hauled up to Capitol Hill to testify under penalty of perjury and a mountain of legal bills.

  But Trump has lived in the eye of such storms for much of his adult life, and he comes to the fight with certain advantages.

  His clash with House Democrats will give him the foil in the form of his Democratic tormentors that he’s lacked ever s

ince his 2016 campaign. This President is always most effective with an enemy to define himself against.

Defense spending poses no threat to other nations, spokesm

China’s defense expenditure is for the protection of the nation’s sover

eignty, security and territorial integrity and does not pose any threat to other countries, ac

cording to Zhang Yesui, spokesman for the second session of the 13th National People’s Congress.

Zhang said at a news conference on Monday in Beijing that China always sticks

to the path of peaceful development and follows policies that are purely defensive in nature.

“To judge whether a country poses threat to other

nations, the key lies in its foreign and defense policies rather than the increase in its defense budget,” he said.

He made the remarks in response to a question on China’s perspective change to its defense budget this year.
